ROUND AND ROUND go some of more than 1,000 students who ja mmed Brock Thursday for Twist Party. (Story, winners on page two.)        —Don Hume photos

Ubyssey sponsors
election debate
The Ubyssey will sponsor an
all-party political forum in
Brock Lounge next Thursday.
All candidates in the Point
Grey byelection will speak and
a question period will be held.
Moderator is Ubyssey editor
Keith  Bradbury.
Third trek
plan backed
by Holland
Another candidate in the Point Grey byelection has told
UBC students to marcih on Victoria.
Antony  Holland, NDP nomi
. conversive contestant
nee, Thursday supported Liberal
Dr. Pat McGeer's suggestion
that UBC students go to the
provincial government for financial aid to the University.
"I'm   all   for   anything   that
will make UBC's plight known
to the public," he said.
McGeer, in a Ubyssey story
Thursday, charged that the
Social Credit government has
contempt for UBC and what the
University means to the future
of this province.
Holland was quick to agree
with his Liberal opponent.
"And we should march on
Ottawa at the same time," Holland said. "Both Victoria and
Ottawa must give more consideration to the University."
But Holland and McGeer have
had little support from student
council officials and other political candidates in the Point
Grey riding.
Malcolm Scott, AMS treasurer, agreed that the trek has
been successful in the past.
But he warned: "It's effectiveness would be ruined if it
is used too often."
UBC students have trekked to
Victoria twice before for financial aid.
' The fjrst trek in 1923 got
Students... their Point Grey
campus. The second, in 1957, extracted a $10 million grant.
AMS president Doug Stewart
said   students   shouldn't   march
until they know why they are
"We need facts, exact amounts
of money required and comparisons with other provinces," he
"I think President Macdon-
ald's report next month will set
doWn exactly what we need.
Then, if a march is the.best way
of gaining our ends, yes, I will
be in favor of it."
Eve Burn s-Miller, Social
Credit candidate, turned thumbs
down on the trek.
Tory Reg Atherton warned
that a march on Victoria could
have a reverse effect.
"The premier does not like
being pressured," he said.
Students nabbed
signing twice
Students have been caught
trying to register twice for
the Point Grey byelection.
Registrar of voters Kenneth
Morton said at least 96 were
found to have signed up twice
when registration booths for
the Dec. 17 election closed
Thursday night.
"Who do these people think
they're trying to kid?" Morton asked. "We checked all
names against a master sheet."
Morton indicated no legal
action would be taken, although it is an offence under
the elections act to register
more than once. Page 2

To get educated
Out - of - towners
pay bigger shot
You've got to be $600 richer to come to UBC if you live out
of town.
A survey taken by The Ubyssey shows that the student who
lives in town spends an average
of $856 a year.
The student from out of town
spends $1,450.
The gap is partially taken up
by the fact that out-of-town students make almost $400 a year
more in the summers.
In a survey of 60 students:
Six out-of-town male students
made $1,454 for the summer, 15
men living in Vancouver made
an average of $1,075.
Girls living in town made
more than did girls living out of
But students who must come
to Vancouver still find it more
expensive to go to university.
In order to pay their way, students from out of town must cut
down on supplementary expenses.
They can't spend as much on
entertainment or clothes.
"Whereas the out-of-town student spends about $155 on entertainment a year, those living
at home spend about $180.
Most of the extra expense in
curred by the out-of-town student comes from living costs,
but travel expenses also make
a difference, the survey shows.
There are some big spenders
on campus too. One girl, living
at home, spent $600 on clothes,
and $500 on pleasure.
Others scraped by on very
little. One first-year science student said he could get by on
$500 a year including all extras. He lives at home.
The Ubyssey's survey was
made after a nation-wide poll
showed the average Canadian
university student spens $1,200
a year.
Maidenforms fight on,
but twist wins battle
The twist won a decisive
battle—and mothers will be
sewing up twisted maiden-
forms for the next three months.
Brock Hall Thursday was the
scene of a raging battle between
the twist and more than a
thousand students at Radsoc's
Twist Party.
The dance floor was a blaze
of brightly-colored shirts, bobbing heads and legs.
The winner of a twist contest
between Arts and Education
wouldn't give his  name.
The twist-weakened male explained, his girl-friend didn't
know he was at the dance, and,
well . . .
His attractive partner, Donna
Roy, Education 3, received a
corsage for her efforts in the
contest. The unnamed male got
a  free  shampoo  credit.
The   grand   twisters,   decided
in a 20-man-twist-down, were

The Company's operations are highly diversified. Thus,
men are exposed to varied sets of business problems in
such diverse fields as nuclear reactors, heavy apparatus
for industry, electronic equipment and appliances for
the home.
The Company's organization is decentralized into product
business departments. This brings men from finance,
engineering, marketing and manufacturing into close
daily association for business planning and decisionmaking, increases knowledge and understanding of all
functions of the business. ,
Rotating assignments are combined with graduate seminar
classes. A variety of initial finance-oriented on-the-job
assignments in several product business departments
and graduate-level seminar courses provide a solid
grounding in many areas of business operation.
There are continuing opportunities for professional development. The opportunity to continue throughout a
career to move not only across functions, but also
between product business departments, assures varied

—Senator Barry Goldwater has
gone after a second college
paper for printing derogatory
comments  about him.
The University of Illinois
student newspaper, The Daily
Illini, has received a letter from
Goldwater attacking a column
in the paper in which the Republican senator from Arizona
was criticized.
Goldwater, whose similar
complaints about an article in
the Colorado Daily touched off
a row resulting in the firing of
editor Gary Althen, maintained
in the letter that Roger Ebert,
author of the column, was denying him the "right to be critical."

The Daily Illini column said:
"(Goldwater) made us wonder,

Scope for thinking men
We need thinking men and women
at IBM. Thinkers who can sit back
and look at a problem from every
angle and develop a working solution . . . then see that it is carried
out. There is plenty of scope for
their imagination; plenty of room
for professional growth. And the
rewards are substantial.
These men and women receive extensive training in advanced data
processing methods. They enjoy
freedom of expression and have
freedom to carry out their own
ideas with minimum interference.
They can be engineers, mathematicians, scientists or have majored
in liberal arts or business studies.
We have customers in all industries, in commerce and finance, and
in scientific fields. Graduates are
thus able to work in their chosen
profession solving the complex
data processing problems peculiar
to that particular industry.

It's time for a third Great Trek—
The time has come for another student
march on Victoria.
The operating grant to UBC is dwindling.
The capital expenditure program is ludicrous when compared with that of other
We are being short-changed, educationally,
with instructors and professors who are not
of the highest calibre possible.
The university has become an academic
supermarket where the lineups are growing
faster than customers can be checked out.
There is no end in sight.
And in a month Dr. John Macdonald will
present a report to the provincial government,
telling the Bennett administration what should
be done to rectify the situation.
Dr. Macdonaid, it is reported, will make
high demands. In this report, he will ask for
the money that UBC should have been getting
during the past 10 and more years.
It will be a hard pill for the government
to swallow.
But, UBC students must be prepared to
back up Dr. Macdonald's demands. We have
marched on Victoria for less reason in the past.
If the government chooses to ignore the report,
we must be prepared to march again.
And it is up to the student council to take
some of the lead.
Up till now, the student council has blissfully ignored any consideration of the University's financial position.
This, despite the fact that an administration
official gave a lengthy speech at Leadership
Conference on the subject
The Ubyssey will support the president's
demands, and will be fully behind student action taken to communicate campus sentiment.
Student protest has worked before and it
will work again
- and a UBC man in the legislature       Dont lecher self go
A few weeks ago, The Ubyssey in a series
of stories first brought to light the seriousness
of the financial crisis whidhi the University is
Much of the information contained in the
stories was hard to obtain because of the tight
lid that is clamped on details by the University
administration. A small part of it was conjecture on our part, and some just safe rumor.
The story, however, hit close to home.
There has been no complaint of inaccuracies—■
with the exception of three minor points in
one story—by the people involved.
One of the people quoted—and one who is
freer to speak his mind than administration
people—was Dr. Pat McGeer. His criticism of
the financial assistance UBC receives is based
on his knowledge of the Canadian universities
financing structure. He is recognized as one
of UBC's few experts in the area.
Dr. McGeer has since been named as a
candidate in the Point Grey byelection and
he should be looked on as the University's
Dr. McGeer's concern with UBC's plight
has stretched back much, further than the beginning of this election campaign.
He has long criticized the provincial government for its continually dwindling support
of UBC. Dr. McGeer knows the situation well
because he works here.
Dr. McGeer was one of the few who, un
der the MacKenzie administration would admit
that UBC was hard done by. Dr. McGeer,
possibly because he was not intimately connected with the administration, could be honest about UBC's financial position.
Now, he wants to go to Victoria and take
his complaints to the legislature. He is the only
candidate with such a direct interest in the
university. He is an expert on what UBC
should and could be getting.
Because of this he will have a better chance
of serving university and student interests
than the other candidates.
UBC students should remember these
points on Dec. 17. And they should remember
that UBC has had its best support when the
University had its own faculty administration'
representative sitting in the legislature.
We're waiting
Speaking before almost half of UBC's student population on February 25, 1958, Premier W. A. C. Benuett promised to match the
UBC development fund up to $10,000,000.
The surprise announcement was met with
cheers from 4,000 students assembled to hear
the premier's address.
That was four years ago.
Where's the 10 million, Mr. Bennett?
I (1) thought (2) that (3)it
(4) might (5) be (6) a (7) good
(8) idea (9) to (10) write (11)
a (12) column (13) about (li)
the (15) population (16) explosion (17, 18, 19, 20 more
people in the world than when
you started reading).
This explosion can be looked
at in another way: If a lineup were made which consisted of everyone on the earth
but one man, and if that man
started at the beginning of the
line and marched toward the
end of it, killing everyone with
a hatchet as he went, the
length of the lineup would increase if the present rate of
population growth were maintained.
So what are we going to do
about it?—wait for God to
have his showdown with the
Devil? or ship the excess off
to other planets as was so intelligently suggested by a
Catholic priest on TV? or annihilate those who would rather
be Red than Dead?
Or   maybe  smarten up  and
Letters: Man meets Jesus Christ
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The arguments presented by
logicians disproving the existence of God are discussed by
the apostle Paul in the first
chapter of 1 Corinthians 21-24.
Paul says, "For after that in
the wisdom of God the world
by wisdom knew not God, it
pleased God by the foolishness
of preaching to save them that
believe. For the Jews require
a sign, and the Greeks seek
after wisdom. But we preach
Christ crucified, unto the Jews
a stumbling block, and unto
the Greeks foolishness. But unto them which are called, both
Jews and Greeks, Christ the
power of God, and the wisdom
of God."
Within these few verses the
answers to Mr. Buzan's questions or doubts can best be
To the non-Christian the
statements of faith laid down
in the Bible may seem absurd
and foolish. But to the Christian these statements no longer
seem absurd because he has
met face to face the living
• Christ.
Mr. Buzan then goes on to
say, "God is normally conceived  as  being  all-powerful,  all-
wise, and all-good. But if this
is true why is there evil. For if
He were all-wise, He would
know how to prevent evil, and
if He were all-powerful, He
would be able to apply His
knowledge and prevent it."
I agree with each of these
God is very capable of destroying evil. But if He were
to forcibly exercise His omnipotent power against the evil
in men's hearts, He would be
compelled by His divine attributes of holiness, righteousness,
and justice to bring justice to
bear upon mankind.
As Paul says, "It is a fearful
thing to fall into the hands of
the Living God ..."
Secondly, God has and still
is doing something to prevent
evil. God, in the person of the
Lord Jesus Christ stepped into
history in order to destroy sin
and death. Instead of destroying, God took the righteous
judgment which man deserved
upon Himself.
Such love was only possible
from an infinitely powerful
and loving God.
Yours truly,
Arts 4.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Mr. Buzan in his article
"God: all-good, all-wise?" has
proceeded along a line of argument quite familiar to attackers of the Christian faith.
He sets up his own definition
of an omnipotent, omniscient
and righteous God and then
proceeds to show the fallacy of
the Christian position by disproving his own definition.
It is true that the Christian
faith speaks of a God who is
all-good. But Mr. Buzan erroneously takes this to mean that
such a God could not allow evil
to be present and that somehow He is not omnipotent if it
is present. Yet God created
man with a free will, the ability to choose to obey and disobey God. Thus the resultant
choice of disobedience and
This is the Biblical story—
how man chose to disobey God
rather than to obey Him. Evil
is present in the world through
man's disobedience. Yet Mr.
Buzan casts a slur against God
for creating man with a free
will. How can a God be good
who allows evil to be present?
Yet Mr. Buzan would probably
say that God was not good if
he didn't allow man the choice
of obedience or disobedience.
Mr. Buzan bases his argument on what he considers to
be the irreconcilable conflict
between man's free will and
God's foreknowledge. He states
that if God knows how we will
act, then our will is not free.
But this is not so. God does not
interfere in our choice.
Speaking of the foreknowledge of God, Mr. Buzan states
correctly that the Creator
knew that His creature would
fall into sin and evil. This fact
he uses to show that God is
not good. Yet such a position
demands that we be able to
understand God. But if we
understand God, would not we
ourselves be God? Human reason has limitations.
Mr. Buzan errs most seriously when he says that God has
not acted to stop evil and thus
is not omnipotent. God has acted in history in Jesus Christ to
meet the problem of sin and
He has shown Himself to be
omnipotent, but more than this
He has shown Himself to be a
God of love, desiring to bring
men back to Himself.
Yours truly,
Arts 2.
accept the necessities of contraception and legalized abortion.
At the present time many
humanitarians feel that this is
perhaps a too drastic line to
take, and are advocating foreign aid in the form of finan.
cial and/or medical help. They
feel that this aid will raise the
standard of living, and will
generally improve the world
The only problem with their
line of reasoning is that it's
• •      •
Take, for example, Canada's contribution of $63 mil-"
lion in foreign aid. Looked at
from the standpoint of population, this amount comes to approximately $1 per year for
every additional child—hardly
enough for one day's food.
The two-billion in the world
who are already starving receive nothing as far as Canada-
is concerned in this case, for
the entire amount was given
only to the additional population.
And the doctors who rush to
underdeveloped and over-
populated countries are likewise pouring their efforts
down the drain. Consider just
one country—India, where the
population increase is 1,000
per day. All any doctor
can hope to do is to assist

Procreation is the only recreation for these people, and
yet they have no knowledge
of the contraceptives by which
they could prevent the inevitable and unwanted children.
My argument, then, is not
that humanitarians and doctors etc. should throw up
their hands in despair, but
that they should become aware
of the fact that apart from nuclear war, the population
problem is of paramount importance. If they do not come •
to this realization, and if they
do not act accordingly, then
their efforts in other fields -
will be useless.
The problem is not beyond
human conception.

Here's what the candidates say...
Liberal worried
about unemployed
Socreds promote
more UBC growth
Social Credit
Repeatedly your Social Credit government has won strong
support throughout the province for its performance in improving communications—notably the highway and ferry system.
But ours is an urban riding.
And it is in the matters of urban development which concern
Point Grey that I am especially
proud of the government's record.
In Point Grey we have
an obvious first duty to foster
the continuing growth and
progress of the University of
I believe the 10-year record
of the present administration in
performing this duty bears favorable comparison with any government in Canada. Whereas
direct grants to the University
amounted to only $1,999,500 10
years ago, this year alone they
will  total $11,225,000.
Certainly some of this increase might be credited to
natural growth, but I believe
any fair-minded observer will
agree that an increase amounting to nearly 600 per cent indicates a responsible acceptance
of   government   obligation.
This year, the provincial government contribution to the
Greater Vancouver school system is at a record level of
$40,406,712. Financial support
is basic to the needs of the
education system. So is creative
thinking of the type pioneered
by the present government with
its "money for marks" system.
making lower fees possible for
a   great   many   university   students.
We are only too familiar with
the departure of talented, well-
educated young Canadians to
other countries. For- this reason,
I support your Social Credit
government which by its own
example has worked so hard to
create conditions under which
competitive free enterprize can
flourish and career opportunities continue to grow here at
Finally, I have strong feelings
about the responsibility of
women to seek a voice in the
conduct of our provincial affairs. The Social Credit administration has a tradition of encouraging participation in government by the women of the
province, and Point Grey ha*
traditionally returned a woman
member to the legislature.

Medicare support
New Democratic Party
My candidature in the byelection will enable the electors
of Point Grey to challenge the undemocratic and dictatorial
policies of the Social Credit government.
All    political    parties    agree   tnrough  the "p^motion  of  sec-
that    a    comprehensive    health
insurance plan is urgent and
possible. Only the NDP has
acted to enact such legislation.
The NDP is pledged to introduce a medicare plan that
will cover every citizen in B.C.,
and that will be administred by
a body responsible to the legislature, with provisions that will
assure the doctor full medical
freedom with no interference in
the doctor-patient relationship.
Unemployment has steadily
increased in B.C. for six years.
It is destroying home life, crippling business activity and robbing our young people of job
Provincial government action advocated by the NDP includes the following immediate
steps: Increased public spending
with available federal aid on
necessary projects such as educational centres, hospitals and
low-rental housing to provide
work and lift the economy. Low
cost electric and natural gas
services to stimulate industrial
development in preference to
the export of power involving
the export of jobs. More sensible re-training if displaced
personnel and the greater provision    of    job    opportunities
ondary industry.
Industrial progress and
stability should be promoted
by the removal of provocative
restrictions on free collective
bargaining and the extension of
bargaining rights to all organized workers.
Living costs, which are
higher in this area than elsewhere in Canada, can be lowered through provincial action by
government automobile insurance at cost and consumer protection against unfair price policies.
Improved educational opportunities for all those with ability
to use them.

Canada in four short years has become a worried country
and B.C. a worried province
We have an abundance of
natural resources, yet.we seem
unable to utilize these at a rate
which will keep our people busy
and prosperous.
Unemployment in British
Columbia has been creeping
gradually upward for the past
decade. Present methods are
not working. Imagination must
be brought into government.
New faces must appear.
When difficult times have
faced this nation in the past,
the .people have turned to their
youth for new vigor and new
ideas. The Liberal Party stands
for reform and the development
of the best which can be found
in   individual  human   beings.
The formula which will produce rapid economic progress
in British Columbia is a simple
one. Capital must be available,
the population must be highly
skilled, and advanced technology must be developed.
Highest on the list of new
projects are those designed to
raise the skills of our people.
Our university system must be
financed as well as those m
other parts of North America,
which is far from the case today.
M.I.T., California, Stanford and
Cal. Tech. Could we not have
the same?
Capital must again be attracted to British Columbia.
Arbitrary moves by government,
such as expropriation of companies without negotiation as to
price, discourages people from
risking their savings on new
industrial ventures.
Finally, technological development must be fostered.
British Columbia must attract
its full share of the world's outstanding men to its universities
and research establishments.
Present labor unrest cannot
be relieved by further punitive
legislation against labor, nor by
militant demands by labor. Only
more jobs will relieve the problem. Only more wealth will provide wider programs of social

The Province newspaper  has

-:iid in reference to this byelec
'ion: "A great many votes probably will be cast on the basis
of the candidates' personal appeal ..."
This is the rule in byelections,
unless the fate of the government is in the balance, because
although the voter gets sales
pitches from this or that party
on its political philosophy, the
voter is not given platforms for
his comparison. Your choice,
then, has to be based upon the
political nature of the various
parties and your evaluation of
the individual candidates.
The Conservative Party
stands for an economic system
of free and competitive enterprise under proper restraints
against monopolies and unfair
competition. When you evaluate
the individual candidates, I ask
you to bear in mind the following: Public service must be
learned, and in this particular
field much of the learning must
be  acquired  by  "doing."
I served four years as a- Vancouver school trustee, followed
by four years as a Vancouver
alderman. During those eight
years 1 was a member of many
delegations to Victoria on intergovernmental matters, so I have
an understanding of the relationships between the local and
the   provincial   governments.
I    am    the    only    candidate
before you with the experience and first hand knowledge required. I shall not have
to serve a period of apprenticeship but will be able to effectively represent you at once. My
pledge to you is to support those
measures which are in the interests of the citizens of Point Grey,
no matter which party proposes
them, and to oppose with equal
vigor those measures which are
not in the interests of the citizens.
In the editorial referred to
above, The Province said this
of me: "The Conservatives have
fielded a proven and highly respected candidate for the Point
Grey byelection on Dec. 17.
Former alderman Reg. Ather-
ton has a long record of public
service in this community, and
his conduct while in public office has enhanced the public's
regard for his wisdom and integrity." I value this opinion, coming as it does from an unbiased,
independent source, and I offer
it to you as the most valuable
reference I can give.
Reg. Atherton was born in
England and came to the Kootenays as a child. A chartered
accountant, he has practiced in
Vancouver since 1947.
Reg. Atherton is a veteran of
the First World War. He is currently a director of the Vancouver Traffic and Safety Council Page 6

Nationals nab
54-53 victory
The UBC Thunderbirds came
'within about three inches 61 defeating Canada's national basketball team Thursday noon in
War Memorial gym.
With three seconds left in the
game, and the Birds trailing the
Lethbridge Nationals 54-53,
Mike Potkonjak let loose a desperation jump shot from about
20 feet out.
The ball bounced off the rim.
And the Birds lost, by one
point, to the team that is (supposedly) Canada's best.
The Nationals were not too
impressive. For a team that is
supposed to represent Canada,
they made a lot of mistakes;
.throwing, the ball away, useless
iouls, and indifferent shooting.
.-'"They: didn't win that, game,"
.UBC coach Peter Mullins said
afterward. "We lost it. We made
too many mistakes in the last
five minutes."
The Birds were leading 49-42
with about five minutes left.
Then they lost the ball five
times in succession, without -tak-,
ing a shot; and the Nationals
caught up.
UBC's Mike Potkonjak was
the best player on the floor. He
scored 17 points—high for both
teams—and took more than his
share of rebounds.
"We really hustled on the
boards," Mullins said. "I couldn't
have asked for more hustle- But
our shooting was lousy, and our
foul shooting was worse. We
beat ourselves."
The Birds ran the Nationals
almost off the floor, making
them look slow by comparison.
John Cook, the Birds forward,
"stole the ball three times in a
row once in the first half.
Guard Harry Blacker scored
the winning basket for the Lethbridge team; he was also their
high point man with 12. Gordon
Betcher had 10 for the Birds.

UBC's cross country team
will be missing one of its top

be  unable  to  make  the  trip.
Blisters cut
Birds' chances
The rowers  have blisters.
No, not blisters from sitting
down too much, these blisters
are On their hands, and they
are caused by heavy salt spray
that kept blowing into their
shells as they practiced on the
Canning river in Perth.
As a result, several of the
Thunderbirds are rowing with
their hands swathed in bandages, and are no longer favorites in the eight-oared race.
The eight-oared crew will
meet dark horse New Zealand in
their first race. If they win,
they will move into the finals
against either Australia or
Great Britain. The finals will
be held on Monday.
Birds, who are currently tied
in second place with the Rowing
Club, collide with the front-running Kats at UBC stadium.
A Kats' victory Saturday will
almost   clinch   the   Miller   Cup
and leave Birds with slim chances in the series.
Both teams will be hampered
by injuries. UBC will be without the services of John
Grange and Tim Cummings.
Grange is in his third year
with the team and was a standout in the scrum last year. Cummings is in his first year as a
