RCMP charge student
with stealing books
A male student at UBC 'has been charged with stealing
books from the library, RCMP said Thursday.
The student was charged late
Thursday afternoon. Police refused to release his name.
RCMP told The Ubyssey it
would be better if the matter
Was given little publicity.
It is not known when he will
appear in court.
The library reported Wednesday that $7,000 worth of books
had been stolen during the last

the heaviest in years.
He said the library could

It was a tough day for those
who forgot to put antifreeze

most students were prepared
for   the freeze.
Most unhappy were the
seductive maidens who live in
the fountain outside the Graduate Centre.
Their charms are covered by

President Doug Stewart said
the. editoriali which appeared
J.Tuesday,, contained "many basic
F;irst vice-president Peter
Shepard described it as "unjust.'
Second vice president Ed Lavalle said The Ubyssey exagger-
a t e d fraternity domination
Stewart end Lavalle both, belong to fraternities.
The Ubyssey editorial said
fraternity domination of coun
cil positions over the last dozen
years was a result of• machine
campaigns.and block voting by
the fraternities.
It called for formation of a
non-Greek political organization
to help the other students gain
executive seats on council.
Stewart said he took "particular offense to the statement
that a candidate would run
specifically or predominately
because he wishes his fraternity
to attain or retain a symbol
similar to the Houser Cup."
He said a candidate would be
a fool to run only for his group's
prestige because of "time spent,,
sleep lost, headaches gained,
and academic suffering" while
holding  office.
Stewart called the editorial's
contention that Greeks on
council fight along fraternity
lines "a gross untruth if directed
toward this year's council."
Stewart added, "It would be
foolish for a machine to run
two candidates for the same
position, as in last year's campaign for president."
(Last year the two candidates
for AMS president, Stewart and
Eric Ricker, were both members
of the same fraternity).
"This machine was unable
and unwilling to give either
candidate its support," Stewart
Nineteen of the 24 members
of this year's council are non-
Greeks, said Stewart. He felt
anyone capable could get elected.
Shepard, who does not belong
to a fraternity, challenged the
non-Greek students to start
taking part in council activities.
Shepard said frat men have
dominated council because
they've shown interest. He described the rest of the campus
as apathetic.
Is the Greek candidate unbeatable?
"Not at all. I ran against a
frat man," said Shepard.
Of    the    six-man    executive,
three   are  non-Greek.   Two are

UBC students last year earned
$1 million more in summer jobs
than in the previous summer.
John F. McLean, director of
UBC's personnel and counsel-;
ing bureau, told The Ubyssey
that 13,505 students reported a
total of $9,392,500 compared to
the $8,173,952 earned by 12,-
019 students in 1961.
However, 3,178 people reported earnings less than $200
for the entire summer. Thesp
people McLean considers unemployed. (This figure is up 544
from   last  year).
Average student earnings increased in 1962. The first year
male student earned an average of $636.82 compared to
$581 of the previous year
, The average earnings for the
first year female was up from
$236 in 1961 to $251 last y?ar.
The average for upper year
male students increased from
$888 in 1961 to $900.16 in 1962.
On the other hand, the upper
class female earned only $426.56
in 1962 compared to $428 the
previous year.
Students earning more than
$1,800 increased from 469 in
1961 to  562 this year
This year, 2.273 students reported earning over $1200. an
increase of 403 over the summer
of 1961.

to he released this month
Dr. John Macdonald's report
on higher education will be pub--
lished sometime this month.
It is expected to be a treatise
oh higher education as costly as
it will be radical.
To give students a background to Dr. Macdonald's
study, Ubyssey reporter Mike
Horsey presented a series of
three articles on UBC finances
last fall.
The financial crisis unfolded
jn.the articles met only silence
from the administration.
The articles are summarized

UBQ needs $50 million before
1A66 and at least $95 million before 1971 to handle,an, eixpected
enrollment increase of 7,000.

No expansion financing for

alumni's expert ort University
finances and Point Grey MLA,
says UBC should now have $136
million in facilities, and an operating budget of more than $26
million a year.

OTTAWA (CUP) -r- World University Service of Canada Treasure Van sales have set a record.
, Sales exceeded $107,000 this
year, up more than 32 per cent
from last year, and double the
sales from any year preceding
1960. Last year a total of $81,-

Topping the list was the University of Alberta .with a record
high of $12,161. The University
of Saskatchewan at Saskatoon
ran second with $7,143. McGill
placed third with $6,103, Queens
fourth with $5,708, followed by
Toronto with $5693.
However, UBC falls short by
about half in both categories.
McGeer also Says UBC should
he receiving $10,000 for every
new student. Provincial capital
grants now fall far short of this
Although B.C. is the wealthiest western province, provincial
monies per capita for university
support shrink steadily.
Newfoundland, the poorest
province, has a program equivalent to an expenditure of $180
million at UBC.
In spite of high fees, the ratio
of students to instructors is the
worst in the nation: 18 to one.
If Dr. Macdonald follows his
plan of increasing standards of
entrance, working capital on
hand for absolute necessities
will decrease still further.
No one knows where to get
more money.
Additional money for research now pomes from/the National Research Council, the
Defense Research Board, and
the United States.
The University still uses "tern- -
porary"    huts    constructed    in
1946.   There   was :not   enough,
money   to   get   better  buildings
then. There is still not enough.
The army-type huts were
built to handle the post-war in-7
flux of veterans.

money, UBC stares at a popula-;

When   a  young  hoodlum   is

of molly-coddling.
The only way to control these
animals is through stark fear

Take the case last weekend
of the youth who allegedly attacked a companion with a
* broken beer bottle and a meat
cleaver, then holed up in a
house and had to be smoked out
worth*-tear gas.
He, like so many others of
his type, comes from a prominent family, has a case history
of similar incidents and is undergoing psychiatric treatment.
But what good has this
thera,r?utic action done? Perhaps it clouded his aim so that
when he (allegedly) swung the.
meat cleaver he m'ssed his
jiving target.

as   hell   isn't   going   to   cure
them. ~ • ■. •  --■
Telling the kid it really
wasn't his fault after all will
really do a lot of good.
But whip him until his body
is as much of a mess as your
house and he'll think twice
about what he does for kicks
the next time.
An inspector on the city
police force told me of the following   incident.
When he  was a detective  a
group of teenage boys who had
gone     on    a    rampage    were -

asked one of the youths for his ;

punk answered, ■ winking at
his companions, "let's play a
little game: you tell me your
name  and I'll tell you mine."
The   detective  looked   at  him
for a moment, then lashed out
with a punch that knocked the
kid across the room.
The youth was suddenly very
co-operative and the rest of
the gang followed suit.
What else could the officer
have done? Just imagine how
far he would have gotten if he
had   "played the little  game:"

I'll agree that perhaps when
the child is five or six psychological discipline can be effective.
But these teenage delinquents
have their behavior patterns
well established.
For their crimes they get off
with a year's parole and visits
to the psychiatrist every other
week—and everyone is shocked
when sometime in the future
their names are splashed across
the front page in connection
with a sex-slaying.
Would     bi-weekly     lectures
when    you    were     16     have
changed your whole outlook on
life? I doubt it.
It's too late to lecture these
delinquents once they're • well
into  their teens.
Only fear, and fear through
almost unlimited corporal
punishment, can be effective
Says Sir Ouvery
. . . frats show interest

primarily because of the time
consumed by their AMS duties,
added Shepard.
. Lavalle said Greek patronage
in committee appointments has
occurred but it has been "the
exception,  not  the rule."
He said most AMS committee
chairmen advertise positions
open and select from applicants.
Some, he said, are prbne to
solicit help from friends but
"this problem will be remedied
A board will solicit applications for posts, especially from
faculties now apath.etic.7-;
Lavalle said Greek rriembers
of this year's council were :aet,ive
in student government long before joining fraternities.-
"Cpuncillors must Tdivorce
completely any outside interests, fraternity or religious,"
added Lavalle.
He said he was working for
wider student participation in
council as chairman of the personnel board.
"What The Ubyssey's forgotten is that Greek's don't always
support a Greek candidate—
often there's stiff competition
between candidates tooth in fraternities and even in the same
fraternity,"   claimed  Lavalle.-
He called the editorial's references to fraternity machines

Letters to the editor
Soccer team deserves support
Saturday at 2 p.m. in Canister Park a group
of unsung heroes will take to the field to do
further battle for the glory of good old UBC.
By most UBC standards they have little
status. The team has only a small budget. It
plays in a local league and makes few trips
outside the province. It doesn't require much
And when the team plays, it plays before
relatives and friends and a few diehard fans.
Despite the growth, of interest in this sport in
the city, UBC support has picked up little.
The team is UBC's Varsity soccer team. Saturday they meet a tough Mt. Pleasant Legion
team for the ball-kicking title of the Lower
Mainland League.
The league is only about half a cut below
the Pacific Coast Soccer League, which can
lay just claim to being the highest calibre
toughest soccer league.
The soccer Birds are undefeated so far
this year. If they win Saturday they have a
good chance of becoming eligible for Canada's
tougest soccer league.
Plans are afoot to continue a policy of promoting the top Lower Mainland team to PCL
status, at the same time dropping the last place
PCL team back to the Lower Mainland League.
This will probably make UBC's soccer team
a contender in a first-rate league—a situation
vastly unlike'that of other major UBC teams
which emerge victorious in the hamburger Canadian college leagues and then get belted in
exhibition games with two-bit U.S. colleges.
When the booted gladiators take a sweaty
victory from Mt. Pleasant Saturday, as they
probably will, UBC should recognize it as an
achievement worthy of note.
Soccer is a game of skill: with individual
ability and strategy taking precedence over
heft and height.
It rates with ice hockey as the most exciting
sport played by a UBC team. It is time UBC
paid a little less attention to games designed
for freaks and backed games in which ordinary
men can win by honing their skills to a fine
Saturday's game should be a first-rate bargain for spectators. Both teams are well-honed.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:

This is a university; here if

hooded study lamps. Let us
hope so, for the public spectacle shews no evidence of

My friend and I went in his

after having parked the car in

walked up the steppes of the

someone with his hand outstretched for admission money.
I tried asbestos I could to
control my anger and started
to question him about the fee.
but he was stubborn, and
finally said "Look, buster, the
tickets sulfur fifty cents—take

He was bigger than I was,

"Hiiiiiiiimmmmmmm," so I
gulped and blushed, because
she was turning out to be much

Federation ineligible
NFCUS air plan
its props
OTTAWA (CUP)—The props have been knocked from
under the National Federation of Canadian University Students' travel program. |     A   board   spokesman said  in
past all regulations coming
from IATA meetings were automatically approved, but that now
many governments are becoming
more "interested" in what their
carriers are  doing.
The new ruling affects only
the group fare plans and does
not affect charter flights already
planned from various individual
universities. (UBC has such a
In a charter flight an entire
plane is chartered—about 110
seats—and the total cost is
divided among the passengers

plan, groups of 25 or more passengers received reductions
ranging up to 60 per cent of the
standard   fare
Under the new ruling, group
fares will toe allowed to individual universities, but only if the
university can get at least 25

Formerly, the students could
be from different universities.
as long as they were members
The federation has learned it
must cancel all five of its
scheduled group fare overseas
travel flights.
The move follows a ruling by
IATA, a cartel of most of the
world's major air carriers, that
organizations with a membership of rnore than 20,000 are
now ineligible for group fare
reductions. The federation now
has a student membership estimated at 106,000.
NFCUS travel director, J. P.
Jinchereau said the cancellation of the flights has cost
NFCUS about $2,000 in advertising and publicity for the
He said that if students have
to pay the regular fare to travel
to Europe they will pay a total
of almost $100,000 more, or
about $250-$300 per fare, depending on destination.
Jinchereau said he will form
a commission to prepare a brief
for  presentation to the govern
ment outlining  the  federation's
IATA itself is_a strange beast.
It is a combine—and frankly
admitted as such by members
of both Canadian airlines and
the Air Transport Board—oi
92 international, scheduled air
carriers, that justifies its cartel
nature by being, as a Canadian
Pacific official put it, "a combine for good."
All regulations passed by
IATA have to be approved by
governments of countries in
which the airlines are registered.
In Canada this means approval
comes, in fact, from the Air
Transport Board.
Rate change
wont hurt
The decision to revoke NFCUS
group air fare rates won't affect UBC, student treasurer Malcolm Scott said Thursday.
Scott, who attended" the" 1962
NFCUS Congress in Quebec,
said the ruling will be a definite
hardship for smaller universities
because of the minimum 25 passengers needed to be eligible for
reduced rates.
"Our travel department has
been growing steadily since its
inception," NFCUS national
president Stewart Goodings said
in Ottawa Tuesday.
"Last year it did almost $200,-
000 worth of business and saved
students travelling overseas
more  than $100,000.

The main objective of the

with functionalism 'and to coordinate man's dwellings "with
the forms of nature.
Many of the ideas presented
deal with the growing problem
of population, such as a floating

Bruno Taut displays the humanitarian aspect of modern
architecture by proposing an
improvement on the beauty of
