And that's exactly where I
found him last Sunday afternoon, energetically heckling
a veteran Hyde Park orator.
"Let me up to speak," cried
Dietrich, persistently. He was
granted the rare honor of being allowed to speak to a
crowd of about 100 from
someone else's soapbox.
For 15 minutes he spoke
about the American Civil
Rights issue and the Vietnam
war until he was asked to step
down because his views were
in conflict with those of the
soapbox owner.
"It seems the right to speak
depends on the ownership of
a box," said Dietrich afterwards.

Six men in dorm
over Visit'
An early morning visit to
women's dorms by six UBC
men resulted in late-leave cancellation for 21 co-eds Wednesday.
Thursday, a five-woman delegation representing the 21 coeds met with Assistant Dean of
Women Mrs. E. Morris to protest the action.
Spokesman for the group
Donna Morris, Arts IV, said:
"We're being punished because
we didn't report the boys to
the Don. How could we? We
knew the guys and we didn't
want to get them in trouble.
"But several other rooms
were visited, many other girls
saw or heard the boys or knew
about it the next day and didn't
report it—why shouldn't they
be punished as well?"
At 1:30 a.m. March 16, six
men entered Isabel Mclnnes
and Ann Wesbrook dorms to
visit approximately 30 girls.
It is not known how they got
One week later, March 23,
Dean of Women Helen McRae
heard of the visit and cancelled
the late leaves for the 21 girls
for the rest of the term.
However, after meeting with
the girls Thursday Mrs. Morris
agreed to reconsider the action.
When asked if the ruling was
fair considering the number of
girls who were involved and
the number who were actually
punished, Mrs. Morris said:
"If there were more than 21
girls involved, we don't know
who they are. If they want to
come forward we'll discuss the
matter with them."
Donna Morris said they will
know the Dean's decision in a
day or two.

'Builder dean
headed back
to Australia
The man who came to UBC
to build the new engineering
complex is going back to Australia to build a whole university.
Dean of Applied Science
David M. Myers left this week
for Australia, where he has
been named vice-chancellor of
La Trobe University in Melbourne.
La Trobe is scheduled to
open in 1967, and an enrolment
of 10,000 is expected within 10

Faculty feuding
over Mac's blast
Faculty members are divided into warring camps over
President John Macdonald's claim Tuesday that professors
want more authority but no responsibility in university
One group says Macdonald's
words don't apply to UBC and
that faculty should have more
authority in the administration of the university.
The other group say they
agree with Macdonald that
professors should leave administration to the president
and the board of governors
and concern themselves only
with academic matters.
Spokesmen for both factions asked The Ubyssey not
to reveal their names.
The battle with the administration involves increased
salary demands and a struggle
for power of some faculty
members, said one of Macdonald's supporters, a high-ranking Arts professor.
He said some faculty members want to make their own
rules and put themselves in
a better position to realize
their wage demands.
The president seems determined to retain the reins of
administrative authority and
is annoyed that. some faculty
members have gone directly
to the board of governors
about salary demands rather
than through him as is customary,  the  professor said.
JBM off base, say profs
President Macdonald told
650 students in Brock hall
Tuesday he objected to the
efforts of some faculty members to usurp the administrative role of the board of governors   and   the president.
"They wish to administer
but they don't want to be
called administrators," said
"They spend hundreds of
hours on committee work,
which they complain about,
and at the same time they say
they want more voice in their
"The faculty seeks a president to give them academic
leadership and then they try
to take that leadership out of
his hands.
Revolting faculty members
;aid Dr. Macdonald's comments are off-base.
"I don't know who Dr. Macdonald   was   referring   to.   In
this university, people who
want faculty participation in
administration are prepared
to take on additional responsibilities," said a faculty spokesman.
"I think it is especially important that faculty have a say
in the appointment of a new
Arts dean," he said.
"Dr. Macdonald accepted
this view in 1963, but now
seems to reject it," said the
faculty spokesman.
Dr. John Norris of the History Department had a sort
of compromise view of the
faculty-president   relationship.
"We don't want the president to be only a caretaker,
but we do want consultation
and cooperation with him,"
said Dr. Norris.
Macdonald   had   said   some
faculty  members wanted  him

on coals
— again
Science's anti-calendar
is on the coals again.
AMS president Byron
Hender received a letter
Tuesday protesting
Science plans to turn
completed anti-calendar
questionnaires over to individual professors.
The letter was signed
Natalie Orwell, but Hender said he thought the
name was phony.
But Thursday he called
new Science president
Dave Williams and anti-
calendar organizer Deven
Trussell in anyway, to
tell them they had taken
the wrong approach in
organizing the survey.
At the meeting Trussell
assured Hender the survey questionnaires would
not be turned over to faculty members.
(Don York, ex-Science
president and anti-calendar co-planner, said in
Tuesday's Ubyssey that
the completed questionnaires would be turned
over to each professor.)
(Trussell said Thursday
York now says he can't
remember making that
statement.) Page 2

to be  no  more  than  a  caretaker.
Another faculty member
chastised Macdonald's unwillingness to delegate authority
to faculty despite the growing
complexity of university administration.
"President Macdonald seems
unwilling to distribute authority in a democratic manner,"
the spokesman said.
He also said the president's
assertion that faculty are unwilling to accept the responsibility that should accompany
administrative authority was
not relevant to UBC faculty.
"Faculty is unusually dedicated and loyal at UBC',, he
The other group of faculty
members fully supports the
president's stand.
One said faculty members
rejecting Macdonald's view are
acting selfishly.
"Those opposing the president are largely young men at
whom UBC means nothing.
They are primarily interested
in salary," he said.
"They should not be given
administrative authority until
they have been here a long time
and are mellow."
"I will have no part in any
movement against the president and I think these other
faculty members should cease
being so damned selfish."
He said the president has
full authority to choose the
Arts dean under the University
"Just do it," said fourth year
education student Ed Home.
Home, 21, who has hitchhiked in both Europe and
North America, will be off on
his seventh trip to Mexico during final exams.
He started hitch-hiking in
his first year at UBC.
"I knew some girls from
Acadia camp who were going
to hitch-hike to Las Vegas. I
tried to talk them out of it,
but ended up going myself,"
Home said.
• •   •
Home's first trip to Mexico
was done in the week between
his last two exams in first year.
Home said people who pick
up hitch-hikers are usually
pretty good.
"In Mexico, most of the bus
drivers pick up hitch-hikers.
But that can be scary. They
start passing on blind corners
where there is a 1,000-foot
cliff and no guard rail."
"But East Germany is the
worst of all, although my
trouble there wasn't only from
hitch-hiking. I spent one night
in jail for smuggling and later
found out I could have got
eight years."
• •    •
Home has some points for
other UBC students who want
to try hitch-hiking.
"Always travel alone if
you're male. I once had to wait
17 hours because I was travelling with another person.
"But if you're a girl, always
go with someone else.
"Avoid travelling at night
in California. You'll find nothing but drunks and hoodlums."
It is with great pleasure that
I take this oppor-
tunity to thank the following Ubyssey advertisers

Dear Dr. John Macdonald:
I've never met you in person and may never get that
opportunity; that's why I felt
I'd write this open letter to
tell you about my first year
at UBC.
What I have to say about
my frosh career will be
awfully dull to you, sir,
since with 15,000 students
you've probably met all the
different kinds. But, now that
the year is almost over, perhaps you won't be too busy to
read my letter.
You know, sir, I'll never
get over how much freedom I
had this year. Boy! An innocent, fresh kid straight out of
high school could smoke,
drink, talk about sex and say
words like Goddam, and nobody would notice, since everyone was doing the same.
I met so many beautiful
girls on campus that I never
did too much studying. I
mean, sir, how can a healthy,
normal, red-blooded Canadian
boy sit surrounded by gorgeous coeds and concentrate on
his work?
Then there were those films
by Larry Kent. I saw Sweet
Substitute five times and The
Bitter Ash twice until I lost
my job as usher in the
I heard so much about The
Ubyssey that I joined its staff
so I could go to their wild
parties. But, you know sir,
they're just a bunch of hardworking students who use sex
to get what they want.
They wanted me to work
forty hours a week as a janitor, but I said no and they all
The biggest shock I had
sir, was on the Christmas exams. Boy, sir, did my study
habits show their results! My
counsellor told me I was just
passing through a phase and
didn't have to worry about
my low grades, so I stopped
I can't help chuckling when
I think of the first time I saw
an engineer's stunt. Those
kids in red sweaters took 10
boys and dumped them all in
the library pool. I laughed so
loud an engineer heard me
and decided to put me in the
water, too. I never laughed at
them after that.
Really sir, I've got to hand
it to you for giving so many
Canadians the chance to
broaden their minds at UBC.
Before I came here, I was like
any other sixteen-year-old:
narrow minded, gullible, inexperienced, inhibited.
Now look at me, sir. I've
lost all my inhibitions and a
lot of money too. I smoke,
drink like a fish and swim
like a fish (thanks to the engineers).
I'm experienced and no
longer a sweet, gullible sap.
You couldn't get me to believe anything now—even if
it were true.
I'll always remember my
frosh year at UBC and will
often think of you while I'm
at Simon Fraser Academy
next year.
Yours truly,
Ali Frosh

the council of the Association
of Professional Engineers.
He took an active part in the
establishment of the British

Dean Myers was appointed
to the National Research Council of Canada. The appointment
was due to take effect on April

able to accept the position now.
"The dean was the kind of
person who was noted for his

of the electrical engineering

president Steve Whitelaw expressed the feelings of the students.
"He was the kind of person
who always went to bat for us,
but he never told us about it.
"Dean Myers would receive
about 10 complaints every
week about our stunts, but he
never objected. He just calmed
the people down, and we never
knew until someone else told
"As for student relations,
you couldn't ask for a better
man," Whitelaw said.

but he never reseived any recognition. A great guy," said
Panel juggles
fee hike queries
Two members of UBC's administration were extremely
careful Tuesday to evade the question of a fee raise next
During the question period
following the discussion on
academic goals, president John
Macdonald was asked by The
Ubyssey if fees would be raised
in September.
Macdonald said: "That will
have to be decided by the
Board of Governors."
The Ubyssey then asked panelist D. F. Miller, a member
of the board, if there would be
a fee raise.
"It will depend on how much
money the government gives
the university," said Miller.
Asked how much money
would be required from the
government to forestall a fee
raise, Miller said that question
would have to be answered by
Dr. Macdonald.
To the 650 students present
Dr. Macdonald said: "No comment."
New housing
Sixty-three per cent of respondents to the AMS's UBC
married students survey will
apply for new married accomodation on campus if it is available.
Approximately 1,300 of
UBC's 2,300 married students
completed questionnaires mailed in December. Survey results
were released Thursday.
Students who would apply
for accomodation said the maximum allowable rents would be
$80 per month for one-bedroom
suite, $85 for two bedrooms,
and $110 for three.
Nearly 70 per cent of married students living off campus
pay less than $100 per month
for accomodation, including
heat and electricity, the survey
Only 33 per cent of the students said they applied for existing campus housing.

A last gasp
Volume 47. Number 66.
That really doesn't mean much to the thousands of
people who have picked up The Ubyssey three times
a week over the last year.
But it means a lot to us.
It means an end to a lot of learning, laughs, friendships and inky problems.
It means The Ubyssey has survived 47 years of
administrations, student councils and pressure groups
with more editorial freedom than most college papers
could hope for.
And, it tells us that many of Canada's greats and
near-greats in almost eVery profession have occupied a
niche in our incredibly cluttered and battered North
Brock basement.
It might mean more to you if we pointed out that
this year 800 pages, 60 tons of newsprint and 1.5 million
words have passed through the hands and minds of
UBC's academic community.
That represents a lot of hours put in by a staff which
gets paid nothing and bends its class schedules in
ridiculous maneouvres to get a. few hours free to work
on the paper.
Their motives aren't particularly altruistic or public

advantage of it.

PF Two
THE editorial in The
Ubyssey Extra (March
10) stated that "the committee is concerned with an
ideal — that every student
should have contact with as
broad an area of knowledge
as possible" and suggested
that many, if not most, students would concur with
the D and D proposals. The
faculty, said The Ubyssey,
may be unwilling to accept
the suggestions of their colleagues.
•    •     •
As a student, I expect that
my support of such a report
would be considered as automatic — that agreement,
however, is not entirely
In their initial statement
of beliefs, the authors of D
and D offered two requirements which they considered essential if the BA is to
be of any value — the "mastery of some sphere of
knowledge" and "an awareness of other areas of
thought and activity".
All of those who consider
the BA as a worthwhile expenditure of four years of
study and effort must agree
with this  contention.
The problem thus arising
is a simple one: what amendments to our present methods are required to provide
the desired goal of a valued
degree? I believe the D and
D report supplies only part
of the answer.
•     •     •
The commissioners' basic
contention is that, at the
present time, the specific
courses offered by departments in their own discipline do not best serve the
interests of general education. They express the point
of view that a student fails
to be exposed to major
areas of knowledge under
the present system.
The substituted system
would provide seminars in
three general fields — Man
and Society, Man and
Thought, and Man and Expression. The amendments
would substitute general
studies for the disciplined
approach now being put forward for first year Arts Students.
•     •     •
The commissioners further state that it is valuable
to avoid premature specialization and commitment
and, in effect, the first year
student has not the ability
to make a decision on his
academic future so early in
his university life.
The authors express the
attitude that a general education program for first
year  is essential.  Then,  for
second year the following
assertion is made: "A student whose studies are 'rooted' in a discipline will have
a deeper understanding of
the processes by which
knowledge has been advanced and a more liberating
education than the student
who  is only a  'generalist".
• •    •
It is expected, therefore,
that a student will, during
the four month interval, between first and second year,
make the transition from a
"generalist" as outlined perfectly through the three-
phase seminar system to a
student rooted in a specific
discipline (History for example).
The student is expected,
through adroit participation
in these seminars, to develop "personal relationships"
with their faculty members.
The faculty member is expected to have such an intimate knowledge of his
wards that when the decision is to be made regarding a discipline selection, he
will be in a position to provide an expert opinion.
The anticipated size of
the frosh class of that year
is 2,200.
• •     •
How can the limited number of faculty members be
expected to either make
such a decision, or to accept the inevitable full responsibility for it?
Finally, after elimination
of the language, science and
other requirements, comes
the ultimate rejection—that
of exams. As the commissioners explain "we believe
that   every   student   should

condition that he have satisfactory lecture attendance
records, and that he has
submitted all written assignments (regardless of marks,
• •    •
The student therefore
having completed no science requirement, no language requirement and having written no examinations,
advances to second year.
The commissioners recommend that for second year,
again, no specialization
should be considered but
rather he should be introduced to several disciplines.
I suspect that the effect
of such a program would
be to create what the American Department of
Health, Education and Welfare classifies as a "BA
mill", at least for the first
two  years.
• •     •
The elimination of examinations and other items at
present used to eject unsuitable BA candidates, allows
all students with minimum
entrance »equirements to
secure two years of university education without once
being subjected to the prospect of removal. The mere
completion of class essays
and lecture attendance automatically — under the proposed   system   —   promotes
a  student through one half
of  a  University education.
I cannot offer my support to such a proposal, nor
I imagine could any student wishing to maintain a
high standard for the B.A.
•     •     •
It appears to me that the
commissioners have failed
to accept the fact that a BA
can, in fact, be an end to
itself. All students registered in Arts I do not intend
to proceed towards a Doctorate or a post-graduate degree. It is still a fact of life
that business, education and
industry require middle
management administrators
as well as doctors.
The proposals made for
the third and fourth years
are basically sound, and for
them the D and D authors
deserve commendation. I
would hope that their proposals would be given some
consideration i n conjunction with an amendment of
our present system for the
first two years.
•     •     •
I don't believe, however,
that the proposals made for
the primary BA years can
be accepted without lowering the present standard.
Amendment of the entire
program as constituted today would be valuable, but
certainly not under the system proposed by the Discipline and Discovery Report. A chancellor looks to the
day when his big campus will
appear small and the student
not the administrator, will
be the one who counts most
THE regent, in effect, told
me to build a multipurpose university campus capable ultimately of accommodating 27,500 students.
It was understood, however, that a chancellor or
a campus cannot be an island. Neither is free to
write the final formula on
a blank slate.

We hope to organize instruction in such a way that
the advantages of a small
college — close instruction,
sense of belonging, residential setting — are combined
with those of a large university — great scholars,
excellent libraries and laboratories, and superior cultural events.
We hope in this way to
help bridge the gap between
the curricular and the non-
curricular, and fill in the
chasm that so often yawns
between students and faculty.
We plan to teach largely
in a series of liberal arts colleges that will average
about 600 students (same
size as colleges of University of Kent at Canterbury),
most of whom will "live in."

By combining living and
learning, we expect to reach
the whole student and to
augment educational effectiveness. Preliminary cost
studies indicate that we can
operate on the residential
college basis at a cost no
greater than on the conventional.
The undergraduate residential colleges, numbering
15 to 20, will be the principal instruments for fusing
learning and living.
Most courses probably
will be either very large or
quite small in enrolment.

'T'HE recommendations of

The college would have a
few hundred students, intelligent and highly motivated,
with a faculty of Renaissance men, dedicated to the
democratic ideal of sharing,
and the aristocratic ideal of
But given the problems
confronting the University
of British Columbia, the
committee reveals that it is
somewhat naive — yet not
completely so.
There are a number of excellent suggestions in the
report. The present curriculum for the Faculty of Arts
provides neither adequate
breadth for a general educa
tion nor sufficient depth in
one discipline.
It is odd that all students in the Arts program
are, at present, forced to
take a science course, two
years of a foreign language,
and two years of English. I
have little to quarrel with
the present English requirement, unless there are students, with demonstrated
proficiency in this area, who
would like to devote their
time to  other disciplines.
The present foreign language requirement and the
science requirement do not
make much sense. There are
many students with little
proficiency in these fields.
At best, they may slug
their way to bare passes
and a year or two later, they
will have forgotten practically everything of significance and, even if they do
pass they will be left with
nothing of ultimate value,
in connection with general
education and depth in a
particular discipline.

And this is to say nothing about many able students who are forced to
withdraw from the university because of their inability to even pass the above
courses. We believe that

Areturning journalist
called South Africa the
most belied country in the
world. Parallel or separate
development of the nations
within the territory of
South Africa (formerly called apartheid) is frequently
criticized as "racism" and
an "insult to human dignity". Why does the white
minority in South Africa
continue to oppress a majority of non-whites in spite
of  world  opinion?
Antonites is the Director
of White African Student
Federation at the University of South Africa. This
article is reprinted from the
Federation's magazine.
In South Africa there are
White, Xosa, Zulu, Colored,
Venda, Isonga and Indian
nations. The white and Bantu nations have their own
original homelands in South
Africa. Parallel Development, as a policy of the present National Government,
means the advancement of
all these nations in political,
social and cultural spheres
of life within their own
cultural connection. It further implies that none of
these nations can or may
rule   over   each   other   and
PF  Four
that they all have the right
to   self-determination.
The critics of South Africa ignore the White na-
ion's right to self-determination. The Whites came to
South Africa at the same
time as the Bantu nations
immigrated to South Africa
from Central Africa. While
the Whites moved northward and the Bantu south,
the Whites settled in their
areas and the Bantu in
theirs. In spite of several
clashes which occurred, the
sovereignty of each other
was respected. The Bantu
ascertained smaller areas of
South Africa, but far more
fertile than those of the
mostly barren area of the
Whites. Because of the
Whites' civilization, the then
mostly primitive Bantu vol-
u n t a r i 1 y flocked to the
White homeland where they
stayed and worked for
many decades.
In the meanwhile their
numbers (later) exceeded
those of the Whites. This
however is no justification
for genocide of the Whites.
In the meantime, the Bantu
areas, e.g. the Transkei, also
started to advance and develop on all terrains. The
Bantu in the White homeland are now gradually (although not forced to do so)
returning to their own
states. The Transkei are
marching forward to full independence as an example
to other African states. The
other Bantu states may soon
be  self-governing too.
Parallel Development is
not an ideology, but an age-
old traditional way of living. Because of this, friction
is reduced to a minimum
and at present race relations
in South Africa are better
than ever before.
The anti-Afrikaans racists,
being defected by public
opinion in South Africa,
have succeeded in carrying
their   ignoble  struggle   out-
Whites with facists, nazis
and oppressors. The South
African Communist Party,
with leaders like Nelson
Mandela and other "democrats", officially decided to
work for a revolution in
South Africa.
A preliminary stage in
this totalitarian aim, was
sabotage. Since many innocent lives were lost by organized sabotage, the South
African Parliament had to
take temporary strict measures like the 90-Day Detention Bill. The Communist
Party succeeded in creating
world-wide sympathy for
the "victims" of "police-
state" measures and many
non-Communist leaders, especially among certain religious groups, unconsciously joined forces with the
aims of Communits totalitarianism. The Communist
Party however was completely annihilated and a totalitarian take-over thwarted. The 90-Day Bill was suspended. Everybody in South
Africa is free to oppose and
criticize the Government.
This may be seen by the
free press and opposition
parties in the South African
and Transkeian. Parliaments.
If the opposition is defeated
by the overwhelming majority of both white and
black, it is no justification
for subversive oppostion.
South Africa distinguishes
between legal and subversive opposition.
The fact that the Whites
are annually spending hundreds of millions of pounds
for the uplifting of the non-
whites is ignored. The same
applies to the fact that their
living standard is rising
above that in a welfare state
and thus incomparably high-

Well, my dear comrade,
are you ready to face Western reality at its best? In
first place, there's ttoo much
rain. So much that one
should be surprised how
they managed to keep above
water in Vancouver and on
one more Vancouver — Vancouver Island. Although
they have a good reason for
that: there is Victoria, the
capital of the province. So,
in all probability, it evolved
out of the British Custom:
to have tradition, then an
island to put it on and
eventually a capital to keep
it in and so forth . . . Well,
it's only natural and something to co-exist with.
When I first arrived in
Vancouver, where I was to
study at the University of
British Columbia, it was a
usual day.
It was late September,
very rainy—yet without the
thunder and/or lightning
flashes or sulphuric smell as
in the air when a visitor ex;
pects when arriving from
such a godless city as Moscow.
As you might guess I was
quite lost. As well, one of
my suitcases took a flight
in some direction. In my
stray suitcase was my razor,
named Sputnik and I started
to grow a beard tot present
a classical Western tradition
of the Russian image.
What was worse though,
was that Vancouver seemed
to have been lost in the
mists with UBC, my bed,
food and other amenities.
The only thing left for me
to do was find a World University Service representative.
I planted myself in the

Booth (my thanks to them
both) had been running
about half an hour before
with umbrellas in hand when

My first experiences with
western free enterprise were
when I deposited my pocket-
money in "My Bank" — The
Bank of Montreal—and indeed obtained a bank account together with a cheque
book and a profit of three
per cent per year on savings.
I even say "we financiers"
enjoy looking over stock-
change information in the
papers. I even discuss the
changes with my friends.
Sometimes I wonder if I
am a good comrade or finally
changed to a capitalist by
the fatal power of per cents
and profits.
To tell the truth, I still
intuitively avoid exercising
this title capitalist for myself. I am trying to atone for
my profit longing by doing
my share in the struggle
aginst capitalism.
To fulfil this duty I am
taking money from my bank
and spending it.
You will not hear too

to the end. Less than one
month left for me to be on
campus and examine the rest
of the western temptations.
By good luck I don't have
any exams, but all the same
it will be—so to say—quite
a grave honeymoon. Everything is coming to its end,
even this year's copies of
The Ubyssey.
Still, before I started to
perform my swan-song on
the UBC's threshold, I want
a chance to summarize my
impressions of the campus,
and tell .somewhat about my
What I feel about Canada
can be best described by this
conversation with a girl; let
us call her Miss Y. Miss Y
is a Commerce student and
in a habit of making profound searches even at the
table, she being an eager exponent of free enterprise's
ideals. So her questions
were:"Will you quit your
gazing at your soup and begin to look at me as everyone ought to? Tell me, are
you struck by the capitalism
in Canada? Is it too much
capitalistic to your taste?"
"No," I answered. "Canada
is as capitalistic as it should
be according to its own
taste, not to that of mine.
Yet, it doesn't prevent me
from enjoying my lunch, believe it or not, even when
residence lunch is questionable."
But I am impressed by
my year on campus in many
different ways. They are
too countless to number.
And it w o u 1 d be pure
hypocrisy on my part to
claim that all of them were
only pleasant and suited to
my taste. But better let me
say frankly: most were
So, leaving Vancouver I'll
take with me all my best
feelings and among them,
envy of the campus' splendid
location. As a matter of fact,
my home university, University of Leningrad, like
the most of old ones, has
more historical buildings
than new. It's true, one has
to be proud treading the
same stone steps as Turg-
enev, Mendeleev and Chec-
kov or Lenin, and graduating where they in their times
graduated from. But still up-
to-date specialized architecture is more suitable for
studies and research.
University life is not less
turbulent there, than here
in the UBC. Numerous organizations (not only the
Young Communist League,
take my word for it) but
from the student's trade union
up to the Jazz Club, runs
over   with   activity.
And one more thing has
to be mentioned. The students and their opinions
have very important, practical influence upon the
state of affairs in the university from the distribution of
scholarships, programs of
teaching and exams and giving scientific degrees.
Student representatives
have not only the right to
make motions but to vote
and their legitimized seats
in all kind of commissions
and scientific counsels, in
other words—on all administrative levels of the university.
And going back to the
tables and lunches, I might
recollect the glorious hours
when our director of the
Food Service had been so
scared by students that at
once he became able to produce excellent dishes with
the same stuff. He does it
for sure now.
Anyhow, we may check it
up at the table when I go
back. Are there volunteers?
So, before the curtain fell
down behind me (I mean a
metaphorical symbol of an
end, not the Iron one. Believe my experience, I had
met nothing of iron when I
flew to Canada) and, seriously, I leave Canada with a
feeling of love.

Right Next Door to the Royal Bank at Robson and Granville ALUMNUS
by eric nicol
An alumnus is a mostly-spherical body of matter,
age not easily determined, resulting from the collision
of cosmic ignorance with a larger body of knowledge
and emitting potentially dangerous rays of nostalgia
and radioactive reminiscences of a rapidly-disappearing
locus in time contemporarily estimable in terms of light
years and typically characterized by an attraction to
curvilinear bodies associated with the phenomenon of
being out of this world.
by hal tennant
Alumnus is having a degree, wondering what you
did to deserve it and wishing you'd paid attention at
the time.
Alumnus is getting mimeographed letters asking
for money and newspaper-style bulletins telling you
how handsome and wealthy the university has grown
since you left.
Alumnus is going to Western Universities dances in
Toronto and not wanting to endure the embarrassment
of singing Hail UBC in front of strangers, without remembering that you didn't like singing Hail UBC in
front of strangers even when you were an undergrad.
Alumnus is feeling uncomfortable picking up a
newspaper and figuring out that those sexy dolls sporting the Frosh buttons this year weren't even born when
you were wearing your frosh button.
Alumnus is discovering smugly that a hell of a lot
of your classmates have grown older, fatter, balder and
dumpier than you are - and then wondering with a pang
whether some of them would think you're getting old,
fat, bald or dumpy; which would be a pretty mean thing
to say about a guy who's only been out of university a
couple of years or so. (All right - so it's fourteen years;
but it's been a short fourteen years.) Page 2

Alumni Annual Giving has been defined as the
financial measure of the interest and concern of the
graduates of UBC for the needs of their university.
The aim of Alumni Annual Giving is to acquire regular participation from a maximum number of alumni.
A.A.G. has existed since 1949 except for the years of
the UBC Development Fund — 1957 and 1958. Prior
to 1957 the A.A.G. program was growing each year.
Upon its resumption in 1959, however, the results were
similar to the initial year's results—1949. The momentum
lost in 1957-58 took five years to recover.
The A.A.G. Committee solicits funds from alumni in
support of the University. These funds go towards many
projects including the following:
MacKenzie Alumni Regional Scholarships, Library,
Athletics and Recreational Facilities, Student Union
Building, Frederic Wood Theatre, Olympic Hockey
Team and UBC Rowing Crew.
Last year at this time, A.A.G. initiated a student
campaign — the principle being to educate students
while on campus to the needs of the University and
their responsibilities when alumni.
For the next five years A.A.G. will work with the
3 Universities Capital Fund in raising funds from
Alumni. The majority of monies raised will go to the
Capital Fund. However, this will occur only after the
basic A.A.G. programs have been covered.
We cannot lose sight of the fact that the Capital
Fund is a five-year program while A.A.G. is a program
which we all realize must endure indefinitely. Consequently, it is of utmost importance that the A.A.G. program strengthen each year. The strength of A.A.G. in
the future will be decided by the participation of us
who are students at present.
The Student Campaign this year will be aimed at
the grauatiny class in an attempt to make them conscious of our program. This objective can only be
realized through the support of everyone concerned.

Oarsmen are either fanatics
or they quit — but nobody's
died ot sweat and their minds
are trained to marvel at
the tough row they can hoe
On the blackboard in the
clubhouse of the UBC rowing crew is scrawled the
legend: "Nobody has ever
drowned in sweat — yet."
It was written by one of
the rowers, possibly for a
joke. But it has not been
rubbed out. Whoever wrote
it expressed, a little over-
emphatically perhaps, the
attitude of not only the oarsmen, but of the general, unblooded public, toward this
highly misunderstood sport.
Because of their eminent
reputation for the extremes
in physical exertion and
dedication, the crews are
usually shunned by great
numbers of prospective athletes when recruiting time
"Rowing," states the popular opinion, "is a sport
for placid, bovine types, insensible to the very limits
of physical torture, and
driven on and on past those
limits by small fiendish tyrants. Rowing is a disease,
and those once afflicted are
beyond help."
Although pure nonsense,
this statement does hold an
element   of   truth.   Oarsmen
PF   Seven
either become fanatics about
the sport, or they quit.
There is no halfway point,
there is only total commitment or nothing at all. So
once infected with the germ,
there is no real cure, not
even time.
A few years ago, a group
comprised mainly of octogenarians of the Harvard
class of 1914, rowed an
eight- oared shell on t h e
Charles River together
much as they had 50 years
before, and as they had
wished to for the intervening time.
•     •    •
The weather that day was
uncomfortable and all the
old men had a warm club
to retire to and a glass of
something satisfying, but
they stroked up and down
for a few hours, finishing
stiffly satisfied and exhilarated. "I've been wanting to
do that for 40 years," stated
one of them, a New York
Ask a rower why he rows,
or a cox why he coxes, and
you are not likely to get a
definite answer.
"Er ... it develops sterling character, and . . . ";
"You can learn self discipline"; "You get neat shirts
for races," are some of the
Clues to the real answer
come   out  more  informally.
Listen to a group of oarsmen
talk, in their free and easy,
yet intimate manner and
one hears of a feeling — "of
hearing water rushing under
the shell" — a certain feeling, that, "when it comes,
you wrench the oar with all
your strength, until it hurts,
and then break into a
smile." This, say rowers, is
what rowing is about. The
medals, the big competitions, the newspaper stories
are important, but a byproduct of the process of
This is an elusive feeling.
UBC rowing coach Wayne
Pretty, a veteran of two
Olympic races, has said
that, in more than 10,000
miles rowed, he was only
felt it at its very best for
no more than 110 strokes.
But then, he says, "You can
hear the water roaring underneath you and the first
15 feet of the bow come
right up out of the water."
This, inexactly, is the fundamental goal of all oarsmen.
• •    •
A racing shell is 60 feet
long and 18 inches wide.
Ideally, it knifes through
the water at up to 13 miles
an hour. It looks and feels
much faster. To reach this
ideal speed, in a controlled
and precise state, a delicate
combination of power and
balance is necessary. One
mistimed tug on an oar, one
erratic body movement, one
careless second, can, and
does, completely s h a t te r
everything, send it out of
body and mind. An oarsman
mustt be in complete charge
of his body and mind every
instant he spends in his
seat. He must completely
exhaust himself, relaxing
only in intervals of regulated recovery between
strokes, if he is to be successful.
A normal boat race lasts
a little over six minutes.
The first six minutes, the
body of the race, are often
a preamble for the almost
frenzied sprint to the finish.
If one could magically lift
an oarsman out of the shell
after those first six minutes, just before that all-out
dash, one would find that he
is finished, exhausted. This
would disallow that belief
that rowers are "placid bovine types."
• •    •
For where he gets that
extra strength from, is beyond imagination. Possibly
it comes out of all the long
training sessions, the slugging through bad days, the
pushing of one's body as far
as it will go. Possibly.
But oarsmen's minds are
trained not to despair over
how much his body has given, but rather to marvel at
how much it has yet left to
give. One cannot quit instead of forcing oneself to
sprint. Many crew coaches
have implored, "Go and
work yourself so hard you
black out at the finish, but
don't, for Christ's sake,
black out at 1,950 meters."
There is a subtle difference
between winning and losing,
and the difference is in the
head and not in the body.

The Witch" THE
Lance shows
the state ot
Dixie is not
much musically
The state of Dixieland today, as revealed by Lance
Harrison's concert in the
Auditorium Wednesday, is
not musically much. Outside of a few persevering
artists such as Dick Cary,
Wilber De Paris and Don
Ewell there isn't much happening in the Dixie idiom
With no attentive jazz
public snapping at them
the Lance Harrison Dixieland Seven tends to take
things rather casually. So
casually in fact, that the
curtain went up with trombonist Jack Fulton attending an off-stage parking
However, sponsoring Jazz-
soc proved equal to the occasion. They forgot to provide mikes for the bass and
banjo but were partially
covered by bassist Doc Hamilton's ability to pull his
quarter-notes like a slingshot.
And who wants to hear a
Dixieland banjo anyway?
Lance showed a mixed
bag of musicians whose
varying shades of musical
modernity could be approximated by the cut of their
suits. Trumpeter Don Clark
proved to be the most venturesome.
Jack Fulton's solos were
tightly constructed with an
incisive attack that provided an interesting contrast
to the blustery role the
trombone assumed in the
ensemble choruses.
•     •    •
Lance Harrison tripled on
clarinet, tenor and soprano
saxes but his clarinet work
was marred by an acrid
tone and scrambly phrasing. The soprano sax remains a challengingly underdeveloped i n s t r u ment
but Harrison chose not to
solo with it.
The Harrison approach
emphasizes the ensemble
rather than the soloist. And
the group's most successful
tunes are those originally
arranged for ensemble blowing: Jelly Roll Morton's
"Wolverine Blues" and Clarence Williams' "Royal Garden Blues."
Despite his playing, Harrison remained wholly within the spirit of- things. He
did a few telling impersonations; derided his pianist,
Frank Massel, mercilessly;
and (mercifully) refrained
from singing.
The audience (some 200
escapists in all) were rather
stiff but maybe they could
not easily forget the loss of
fifty cents. In sum the concert suggested Nat Hentoff s
assessment of collegiate Dixieland jazz.
"The college kids who
avidly sip their beer while
tapping their crepe-soled
shoes to 'Muskrat Ramble'
are engaged in vicarious
imaginings. 'Why, I could be
out there, playing that low-
down gutbucket stuff'."

SINCE the beginning of a
more militant attitude
towards the Social Revolution in the United States, a
predominant and somewhat
undesirable factor has gradually infested the sphere of
America's most authentic
and most provocative art
• •    •
In recent years, an attitude known as Crow Jim has
been a decided influence in
the field of jazz. Although
Crow Jim is not as powerful or highly developed as
its most immediate counterpart, Jim Crow, it does exist
and will still presist as long
as Jim Crow has any effect
in matters of equality. However, for Jim Crow to collapse into oblivion, a profound change is required in
man's thinking towards one
another o r miscegenation
which would undoubtedly be
a result of a new attitude.
• •    •
Jim Crow has prevailed
(according to C. Vann Woodward) since the Reconstruction period, when the Negro
was constitutionally and
theoretically recognized as a
freed man and vaguely as a
citizen. Indeed, its segregative principles did not apply
to slavery as this would have
undoubtedly prevented normal interaction between master and slave and consequently would have made
slavery impossible.
• •    •
Jim Crowism emerged
largely because of the Negro's passive and submissive
philosophy as personified by
Booker T. Washington—who
advocated Negro inferiority.
This profound apathy that
must have appeared to some
whites as an incentive to
further agression eventually
inaugurated the Negro into
becoming a sectional scapegoat between white conservatives and white radicals in
the 1890's. The enfranchised
Negro had become merely a
mechanism to political power for the Conservatives.
But with the emergence
of the Redeemer party who
were also vying for the Negro vote, the Conservatives,
as a political expediency be-
g a n disenfranchising the
Negroes in the various states
and eventually thwarted the
Redeemer's attempt for political success through the
exploitation of black votes.
Consequently, Jim Crow statutes were applied, and in
many cases stimulated segregation and discrimination.
• •     •
In jazz, Jim Crow has obviously persisted since a major portion of jazz musicians
are Negroes. However, its
ugly diseased head not only
protrudes to the Negro in
jazz but also in other creative and/or non-creative processes and to other minority
groups. Indeed, Jim Crow
with its negative attitudes is
the prime source of Crow
Jim. If Jim Crowism had
never existed, it would have
been virtually impossible for
Crow Jim or even the black
nationalist movements to attain the status that it now
has. The pleasure dome
which Jim Crowism exists
in has perverted some of the
American Negro jazz musicians into a justifiable state
of social defense. These musicians believe emphatically
that, with a few rare exceptions, Negro jazzmen are
more "authentic" and tend
to be more original and creative than their white peers.
• •    •
They maintain that his is
not a hereditarily determined condition but is a
consequence of environment. It is the resut of the
kind of experiences that a
Negro in America has and
the white musician is, in
effect, an intruder or interloper. As a consequence of
this feeling, an element of
racial superiority has developed in these Negro jazzmen; an attitude of reverse
bigotry known as Crow Jim.
To these jazzmen, the
blues, which is the parent
of all legitimate jazz was
the product of the black man
in America. It was these
black slaves who, after preserving the rhythms and
scales   from   Africa,   gradu
ally interfused them with
the form and tonality from
Europe; the old French popular music that was in the
West Indies and New Orleans. Hence, jazz, in essence, is a unification of
Afro-European cultures; and
some Negro jazz musicians, because jazz is a product of the Negro, feel that
the white musician whose
race has been exploiting the
black man has no right to
further his exploitation into
something that was black
instigated and black developed.
• •     •
Moreover,   these   Negroes
look to the jazz situation today and state quite vigorously that a high percentage of
the Major jazz men are Negro. Max Roach, one of the
most influential drummers
in jazz history, in a Down
Beat panel discussion about
three years ago, replied to
the question of black superiority in jazz by stating that
"if a guy wants a good jazz
player, nine times out of ten,
he stands a better chance of
getting him from the black
population than from the
white population . . ."
• •     •
Another    jazz    influential,
Oscar Brown, being questioned on the quality of
white jazz musicians today,
replied "Dave Brubeck and
Stan Kenton . . . when they
play jazz . . . they are just
Europeanizing Negro music."
Moreover, many leading
jazz combos such as Ahmad
Jamal, Yusef Lateef, Prince
Lasha and Roach do not employ white side men. Indeed,
it seems that this attitude of
reverse bigotry -which is
equally wrong prevails
among Negro musicians who
are excessively bitter and in
need of a defense mechanism.
In a '62 December Down
Beat, Lennie Tristano stated,
"a Negro may think that
jazz makes a man out of
him (by his advocation that
jazz is his personal domain)
but nobody has a corner on
music." Assuming, however,
that Negroes have a monopoly on jazz and they were
successful in preventing outside (white) penetration, this
would in no way guarantee
that Negro musicians within
their private sanctuary
would perpetuate the very
existence of jazz.
• •    •
For any creative process
to persist, and jazz in particular because of its improvis-
a t o r y qualities requiring
necessary expansion, there
must be a constant and guaranteed overflow of new formats and ideas and the innovators should be given a
place regardless of pigmentation.
Charlie Mingus, one of
jazz's most dynamic bassists
today, commenting at the
Village Vanguard a few summers ago on his integrated
band which included Don
Butterfield stated Butter-
field was the "best damned
jazz tuba player in the country." Asked why, Mingus declared, "I don't mention that
because he's white either.
He's colorless, like all the
good ones."

harpsichord-maker, one of

Refreshingly, the young
Cockney musician is not a

Benjamin Britten composed
for him, Bream said, "When
Britten gave me this work
I had to look up that word
nocturnal in the dictionary
—and it's there. It means
something to do with night."
Before he studied the lute,
Bream was already a ranking guitarist, having been
encouraged in his studies at
London's Royal College of
Music by the great guitarist

Pique's piquant
fare too spicy
but it got
into print
Pick a peck of Pique for
a penguin full of laughs.
And if the figure of
speech above seems distorted, "whimsical, and vaguely
hilarious, it just about sums
up Pique, the campus humor littlemag put out by the
group with no less name
than the Young Bourgeois
Authors and Artists Association.
Take the penguin, for example. The bright types that
produced the mag — under
the editorship of Wayne
Nyberg, the poet who won
both first and second place
in the recent Artisan literary contest — have made
the penguin something more
than a bird.
Like an archetypal symbol.
From the start, the dirty
bird is everywhere. The
Voyage of Sir Percival
Pique by Victor Neuman
introduces the thing in a
funny — though hard to
read in a small type size —
prologue - cum - introduction, tying the whole mess
into continuity with last
year's YBAAAA publication, Ledphartte's Magazine.
And right in the middle
of the book, Pique's Pick,
the beauteous daughter of
a penguin farmer, provides
that bit of spice to the
stewed Penguin meal which
makes up the rest of the
The Great Flap Debate by
Chris Johnson, a horrendous re-hash of you-know-
what between the leader of

rest of the bulk: a satire on
Hamlet by George Payer le
and The Taming of Fred
Smerd by Ron Simmer.
For the artists, Ubyssey cartoonist Jeff Wall is "
up to his usual standard in
such greats as an ad for
reefers, and the ultimate in
philosophic cliches.
And Robert Muirhead's
portfolio of the antecedants
to obscure folksinger Fender Greenie Jones songs are
topped by his history of
Ferry Across the Mersey,
depicting a gigantic Ferry
bearing down on Jerry and
the Pacemakers frantically
rawing   Across the  Mersey.
And for the poetry lovers,
the mental gymnastics of
Roberta West's literary situation would amuse anyone.
Even the history of the
magazine is funny in a
Pique-ish sort of way.
First copy deadline was
Oct. 31, extended and extended until the last bits
rolled  up in February.
When Pique's printer
UBC's Extension Department saw the manuscript,
they yelled for a sponsor,
but neither administration
nor the stray faculty member approached by the
group would touch it.
Finally, Extension said
they'd settle for an O.K.
from AMS officials, so genial then-president Roger
McAfee signed sight unseen.
And after a few more conferences and a modicum of
censoring, Pique got printed.
But the jokes never stop
in the Pique world. Even
Thursday as the YBAAAA
members were settling a
price for Pique, they ran
into financial difficulties
over the AMS red tape: that
is, the YBAAAA was in the
red, and the AMS was ready
to tape the whole project

processes and the development of an intellectual elite;
indeed, any society without
one, is doomed to fail. And
even if it has one, it will
probably fail also — so history  reveals.
Yet, we like the idea of
a more intensive major, but
at the same time, we also
want room for a second
major, even though it be
less intensive than the first
major. Our argument on this
point might not please our
colleagues in the Faculty
of Education.
Our belief is that a good
number of Arts graduates
will become high-school and
junior college teachers, and
it is much better that they
get an arts degree before
they take an additional
year in eacher training —
if that is still deemed necessary.
Lest it may appear that
our remarks are mainly on

log cabin he owns on Arcus

Puget Sound.
He is an avid sportsman and

contrast sharply.

Dartmouth is an ivy boy's

"Dartmouth students are

not very hungry to learn," said
Dr. Winter. "They regard a
college education as part of
their birthright."
He said Dartmouth is characterized by saneness and conformity.
Dr. Winter finds the variety

/       By
jack McQuarrie
Given a good chance of appearing in the confines of
Empire Stadium this year are
Shatzko, Davis, Danchuk and
Davis and Danchuk will
take the practise field as defensive halfbacks for two
clubs that are presently weak
in these positions due to retirements. Danchuk will attempt to fill the shoes of the
departed   Harvey    Wylie    at
Calgary while Davis will try
to take over where Ralph
Goldston left off at Hamilton.
Shatzko, a tackle, known
as the "Badger" by his teammates, has attended the Calgary camp before and by all
reports, has a job waiting for
him. He had a job waiting for
him with the NFL New York
Giants last year too—until he
found that 235 pounds was no
better than scatback size in
the NFL.
Norm Thomas showed well
in the Montreal Allouette
training session last summer
but was traded to Edmonton
where he is rated as having a
good chance to crack the lineup as a flanker. He will join
two other recent T'Bird grads,
Pete Lewis and Tom Thompson.
The same philosophy more
or less seems to lie behind all
of these students' willingness
to risk their limbs in the rigors of pro football. Here's hoping that all their breaks are
good ones.

On the other hand, I could join Howie Yung with his Iri-

Seven awards? How can they? The most valuable player,
high scorer, most gentlemanly player, most penalized player,
top defenceman, best dressed player and the Academy award.
Although the latter hasn't anything to do with hockey,
Yungsy deserves credit for being the only start to stay married to Liz for more than 18 months. That takes teamwork.
When action resumes and wayward Howie tees off with

One of the startling surprises this year was in the cherished
Rose Bowl when Michigan State held powerful Simon Fraser
to only two touchdowns but lost 14-0. Joe Davis must be given full credit, for in his rookie year as coach with a nothing
team, he took them to the historical classic. And Won it too!
But the biggest steal of the year was when he signed Tom
Tamath to a 9 year scholarship after which he will succeed
Davis as coach. Mr. Davis is rumored ready to take over as
Chancellor when Tamath's term expires.
Kaputzi out to lunch
Davis did a magnificent job of luring Tom away from
the grabs of Kaputzi and Company. He offered him an
established career as player-to-be-coach with some education to boot. Who says you can't win them all?
Yes, it has been a good year for sports! One of the greatest
feats in the sporting world was Canada's unprecedented
World Hockey tournament victory.
They had a close call in the "B" championship round when
they edged Japan 2-1 and Italy 1-0, but the "A" competition
was far easier than expected.
In front of 15,000 astonished fans at Moscow Palace, Canada edged Russia 9-0 in the finals. Bower's boys had earlier
defeated Sweden and Czechoslovakia by identical 13-3 scores.
Finland game them their closest game 5-1.
And to no one's surprise Eddie Shack was named the tournament's top player. He only got one goal but the opposing
players were so busy watching his hockey manoeuvres that
they forgot to watch the rest of the team.
No, I won't get an Iroquois cut. I am going to grow another
beard so that I can be a Santa Claus this Christmas. That way
I will have extra money so that I can pay for my Yul Brynner
hair-do next year.

head retires
Housing administrator A. R.
Baird is retiring April 1, after
19 years with the university.
Baird came to UBC in 1946
and was instrumental in bringing the army huts from Oak-

where they now make up Ac- i

Mrs. Rose Wells, Baird's secretary for many years said:
"He is a very able administrator and I am sure he will be
greatly missed at UBC."
