Alumni to
honor top
UBC student
UBC alumni association
Thursday announced the creation of an award to be given
annually to the outstanding
student of the year.
Tim Hollick-Kenyon, head of
the a lumni association, said
the award, called the "Alumni
Award to Student Merit,"
would be given to a student
with good marks, who has
served the university and has
good character.
"It is a unique award at the
university," he said. "It is
open to anyone, male or female,
in any year, any pursuit whether arts or athletics.
"It will be Great Trekker
Award in reverse where the
alumni will be able to honor
the students," he said.
The Great Trekker Award is
the highest award students can
give alumni who have contributed to the university's development.
Hollick - Kenyon said the
award will take the form of a
plaque with a small replica
given to the student who wins
He said the idea for the
award was first put forward in
a 1960 Alumni survey of the
university's needs.
"But it and many other of
other recommendations were
not acted upon.
The plaque will be given at
the second annual Student-
Alumni banquet in Brock,
Thursday, Feb. 6.
. . "mortal fear"
We decided the best way to
get to know the auction—uh,
intimately—was to bid for one
of the 17 girls from Phraetes'
Nu Chapter that the engineers
were auctioning off to raise
money for an orphan in Korea.
So I went up to the back of
the jammed Civils building
classroom and bid, while Hume
walked over to where timekeeper " Gopher " Waldron
waited with his bell.
Every time the bid is raised
five cents the bidder gives a
nickel to someone collecting
the cash from the crowd.
The last one to bid before the
timekeeper sounds his bell,
wins the sheet-draped beauty
as his "slave" for the day, provided he takes her to a party
that night.
Hume waited beside the timekeeper until the time was just
about up. Then he gave me
the high sign.
Screaming    "Five    dollars!"
above the noise of cymbols and
sirens, I leaped to my feet just
as Waldron rang the bell.

go to vote
on Feb. 5
It's a race.
Eight candidates filed nomination papers Thursday, by the
4 p.m. deadline for three positions  on the AMS  first slate.
Three candidates are contesting the AMS presidency,
three are seeking the the secretary's position.
An 11th hour candidate,
Howard Faulkner, Arts II,
filed papers for the AMS second vice-presidency held by
Byyron Hender. Hender, seeking re-election, was unopposed
until Faulkner filed.
The three seeking the presidency are Mike Coleman, arts
president; Roger McAfee, Campus Canada editor; and Ken
Harrison,   Engineering III.
Donna Morris, Marilyn Mc-
Means and Ruth Dumont art-
seeking the secretary's job.
The number of candidates
is a turnabout from last year
when the presidency and second vice-presidency nearly
went by acclamation.
At the last minute a group
called the Non-Conforming
Calathumpiums propped up
three candidates to make it a
As nominations closed Thursday, AMS first vice-president
Jim Ward immediately called
on the candidates to put some-
life into the campaign.
He said they should face the
issues and promptly named
several they should be facing.
(See story on Ward's questions,
Page 2).
The Feb. 5 election will fill
three of six executive positions
on council. On Feb. 12, students wil vote on posts of treasurer, co-ordinator of activities
and first vice-president.

seconded the nominations for
first slate candidates are on

Statements by the candidates
will appear Tuesday.
Rally round what flag, boys?
Where have all the flags
A flag stolen from atop the
uncompleted education wing
hasn't turned up yet.
A flag sent to The Ubyssey
—it measured 12 feet by. six—
has still not been claimed by
its owners.
And a flag that is supposed
to fly over the Armory still
isn't up.
The   flag  from  the   educa
tion building, one of Bennett's
abortions, was taken from the
building a week ago.
And the man responsible
for the flag isn't too happy.
Fred Gordon, government
supervisor of the construction
job, said the flag, measuring
12 by 24 feet, is worth $75
and he will have to replace it
"I was young once myself,"
said Gordon, "and I'll go
along with a prank but if it
doesn't get returned that's a
different story."
Gordon says he does mrany
little things for students such
as picking them up as he
drives into the university in
the morning.
"It makes you want to stop
doing these things when students don't do anything for
you," he said.
Meanwhile, back in The
Ubyssey office, the flag sent
to the paper in the mail still
awaits its owners — the administration.
Editors said no one has asked for the flag yet so they'll
continue to hang on to it.
And the Armty?
Spokesmen told The
Ubyssey last week the reason
it wasn't flying was that a
halyard was broken and no
one could be bothered to fix
it. Pqge  2

mass appeal, or based on
answering certain questions.
"Issues have been absent
from this campaign," Ward
said. He said candidates
should be prepared to take
a real stand on issues.
Ward said he wanted to
know how the candidate
thought SUB financing should
be done.
Ward said he wanted to
know about the Canadian
Union of Students.
''Do the candidates feel we
should stay in for another
year?" he asked. "We've been
staying in for 'just one more
year' for the last four years."
Ward wondered whether
the candidates intend to set
up direct representation with
the adminstration—such as a
seat on the senate.
He said he wanted to hear
candidates views on what
Ward called "President Macdonald's incroachments on
student autonomy."
Do they intend to spend
less or more money on athletics or academics? Ward
He said that athletics currently are in very poor financial shape, but that Negro
author James Baldwin, whose
$500 lecture fee was criticized by many councillors,
was one of the most popular
events the AMS sponsored
this year.
"I think we could do away
with homecoming," Ward
said. "It's lost money for at
least three years."
He said he wanted to hear
the candidates views on getting rid of such money-losing
but traditional AMS activities.
How do candidates expect
to do a good job of being
president, and still maintain
good academic standards,
Ward wanted to know.
And also, do candidates
feel they should try to interest the student body in AMS,
and if so, how?

I believe that only Mike
Coleman can effectively fill

of the major issues the student body will be facing in
the year ahead: the union

university administration and

Mike has not limited himself to a single area of student afairs and has consequently gained the wide experience so necessary for one

exercised with dignity and
For these reasons I very
strongly urge you to join
with me in support of this exceptional man.
Roger McAfee possesses the
dynamic qualities of leadership and organizational ability as well as the maturity
which are essential for a student president.
He has served the student
body well in the past, holding posts on the AMS and
Acadia councils while leading
The Ubyssey to its first
Southham Trophy. As President he was the driving force
in the reorganization of the
national student news service, Canadian University
Press. Roger is now editor of
"Campus Canada" and an executive on the Open House
Academically, Roger has
also proven his merit, holding
a BA and now working toward a Law degree.
I am very pleased to second
the nomination of Byron
Hender for his second term
as 2nd vice-president on the
AMS executive.
Not only will his past experience prove invaluable to
the new executive, but also
his detailed knowledge of the
society's public relations program will be of great use to
the student body during our
present crisis in higher education.
Byron has served as assistant coordinator of publications, chairman of the higher
education promotion committee, and is presently a member of Open House.
He served last year as second vice-president, and as this
area of student government is
his specialty, he wishes to

office. He is a person of ability and I know he will work
for the best interests of all
the students.

In high school Ruth was

At UBC Ruth has participated in a wide variety of interests.
Ruth's amazing organizational and secretarial abilities were widely evidenced by
her contribution to the 1963

Because of her enthusiasm,
eficiency, and over-all competence I know Ruth would be
a golden asset to student's
council and I therefore urge
everyone to vote for Ruth
Dumont on Feb. 5.
For the position of AMS
secretary, the prime qualification is executive experience.
Marilyn McMeans is the one
candidate equipped with a
good working knowledge of
what the post requires.
Marilyn's experience as

A pub in SUB
With parched throats, we contemplate a time-worn
question: Why haven't we got a pub on campus?
We think it's time a concentrated student effort was
made to achieve this long-sought, but long-frustrated, goal.
The reasons we don't have a pub within seven miles,
let alone right on campus, are (1) our hyper-public relar
tions-conscious administration, and (2) our puritanical
provincial government—not much of a hurdle, eh?
The administration will not even discuss the subject
of beer (save for within the confines of the Faculty Club's
/ banquet-licence bar) because they're afraid their public
f   image would suffer.   They might lose the financial sup-
!    port of a handful of teetotalling alumni, or arouse the ire
of Johnny Frosh's mother, they say, if they were to
acknowledge such sin.
For the same blind reasons, the administration will
not allow The Ubyssey to run beer advertisements—
they're afraid some people might think that this would
corrupt our rosy-cheeked undergraduates. They're right,
of course, many people would complain.
But they're also ignoring the fact that these students
have been (1) looking at beer ads in every magazine and
newspaper they have picked up since they learned to
read and (2) imbibing that wicked amber liquid in downtown pubs, basement suites, and Volkwagens since they
were 17 anyway.
Nobody knows the reasons why the government that
gets things done is so backward in its liquor policies.
But everyone knows that when any establishment west
of Burrard St. asks for a liquor licence, they receive
mimeographed notes from the Liquor Control Board saying sorry, we are unable to grant your request. No
Ignoring completely our society's strange morals
which forbid the partaking of alcohol by anyone under
21, the situation is utterly irrational and hypocritical.
There are thousands and thousands of adult citizens
attending the University of B.C. The problem of distinguishing them from those sly, immoral minors is ridiculously simple—the AMS or the university gives them
a different-colored identity card.
At the majority of Canadian and U.S. campuses,
there are pubs right across the street from the university
—at McGill, an alley separates the student union building
from a hotel beer parlor.
We say it's time prohibition went out the window at
UBC. Let's have a beer parlor on Tenth Avenue. Or
better still, a pub in SUB.

An   open   letter   to   Malcolm
The Engineering Undergraduate Society Council
takes strong exception to your
public statements regarding
the fee raise. The use of such
words as "garbage" and sweetheart deal" to describe the
Board of Governors handling
of the fee increase is irresponsible, detrimental to the reputation of the student body,
and, most important, makes
the conduct of future negotiations with the administration
more difficult.
We do not defend the Administration, but we feel that
these comments are certainly not  representative of  the
ment, personality, or age. As
to experience, one candidate
has a good deal from working
in the AMS; and the other has
a good deal in reporting the
working of the AMS. They
balance out.
• •    •
Personality is one hell of a
silly way to decide an election such as the AMS especially when both candidates
are so well qualified anyway.
Age is as silly, when one is
20 and the other is 23. Therefore, we can make no decision
on the basis of factors other
than policy.

is a farce. We are lowered to
the point of choosing "the

We recognize that there are

Of course, there is not much

Redcoats still hunt campus reds
OTTAWA (CUP) —The issue has arisen again. Are
the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police on Canadian university campuses?.
Prime Minister L. B. Pearson and former Justice Minister Lionel Chevier said an
emphatic "No" to a Canadian Union of Students and
Canadian Association of
University Teachers (CAUT)
delegation on November 15.
• •,    *
Last month the University
of Saskatchewan at Regina
was the centre of reports that
a student had been approached by an RCMP security officer. The officer asked him
to spy for the government.
When government leaders
were questioned on the floor
of the House of Commons
they denied the incident.
Latest reports from Regina
indicate the student might
have misinterpreted the officer, but the student (unnamed, but known to be
honest and not given to illusions) maintains that indeed
the officer asked him to report on his fellow students
and professors.
• •    •
CUS is presently seeking
documentation on the incident, for, if the charge is
true, it would be a direct violation of the promise given
to the student university
community by the prime
minister last November.
Last year there was a
great cry, from campus and
Commons alike, that RCMP
officers were on campus "insidiously spying on" students
and professors.
CUS and Canadian University Press (CUP) worked
jointly to provide documentation on these charges.
Len Norris, Vancouver Sun
Many students did not
wish to come forward and
relate their experiences with
RCMP personnel.
In an interview last March
then RCMP Commissioner
Harvison said that the
RCMP were interested in activities on Canadian campuses because Communists
were also interested.
•    •    •
He would not say whether RCMP officers were
then investigating students
through professors, or the
professors themselvesr
A CUS congress in October
passed a resolution seeking a
final clarification of the
RCMP's campus activities.
The congress threatened a
"suitable manifestation" by

Fillet Warbles
James H. Fillet recieved the
Emshwender fellowship for
three years of study abroad.
His prize-winning thesis was
titled "Warble Effect of Micro-
moens on Cedar Neutrides".
This seems direct and conclusive at first, but when
read closely the statement
does not make clear any of
the phrases: "general RCMP
surveillance," "security re-
ponsibilities," "as required"
and "espionage or subversive  activities."
CUS also recognized this
and asked the prime minister
for a clarification. No reply
has been received.
Appearing on a national
TV program, Dave Jenkins,
CUS president, said: "If nowhere else in Canada, freedom of speech should be permitted on the university
campuses. Professors and
students are afraid to think
and challenge ideas if they
feel that they are under constant RCMP surveillance."
• • •
He said: "I don't mind
RCMP officers, studying at
universities; it is a good idea
to raise the standards of
the RCMP."
Next month CUS and CUP
wil be investigating the latest "'breach" of the RCMP
and if it is a valid case, Jenkins says he will take it
directly to the Prime Minister.

This is Shakespeare's year
all right. The Freddy Wood is
coming up with Much Ado,
and, currently, The Playhouse
is presenting Julius Caesar.
Mavor Moore, who directs,
says in his program notes that
he has "tried ... to strip away
inessential trappings of time
and space." With what remains
he has contrived a surrealistic production of Shakespeare's
classic in the tradition of, as
noted by Moore in his program
notes, "Voodoo Macbeth s,
Eskimo Lears and Wild West
Taming of The Shrews."
•    •    •
But never, never, never has
there been a Julius Caesar like
the one at the Playhouse.
Where to begin? The Roman Senators are dressed in
grey sweat shirts and slacks;
the younger members, the majority, look like Young Offenders on their way to Haney
Correctional Institution.
Caesar, Great Caesar, who
doth bestride the world like
a Colossus, wears: white tennis
trousers, white T-shirt (Army
& Navy, 79c) and — black oxfords! He carries a red sheet
uncomfortably as though someone had asked him to hold it
for a minute.
Mark Antony wears the
same rig as Caesar except that
he dispenses with the blanket
and managed to rustle up some
white tennis shoes. Portia
wears peasant garb of the 14th
Century and Calpurnia, although I'm sure this will be
rectified by the time you read
this,   actually   wears   a   gown
that looks as though it might
have been worn by Caesar's
The Battle of Phillipi looks
like a teen-age rumble except
for the surrealistic touch of
having Antony's generals wear
white bus-boy monkey jackets
with red-tabs as they gabble
through (and it seems wildly
incongruous) the majestic lines
of Shakespeare.
• •    •
With no set (Caesar's throne
is a canvas folding chair), no
conviction, fire or feeling in
any of the lines, (with one exception noted below) and the,
to put it kindly, informal dress
of the actors, the overall impression is of a rehearsal during an early run-through.
To be blunt, this production
is bloody awful!
Symptomatic is the casting
of Alan Scarfe as Antony.
Scarfe is talented, has a fine
voice and will go far. But he's
not ready to play Mark Antony.
Mavor Moore makes very
little use of the large stage at
his disposal, unimaginatively
employs that nerve-jarring ca-
cophany of scrapings and
scratchings called electronic
music, impudently "improves"
Shakespeare by giving Casca
some additional lines by way
of Prologue, something about
"We're just a bunch of actors
and stage-hands and electricians — we're not really
Roman citizens." Which turns
out to be quite an understatement.
• •    •
Oh, for some good, honest
booing at the end. But no, the
tame audience responded with
more-than-dutiful applause.
Shakespeare has been betrayed many times and he's
used to it by now; after all, he's
been around for four hundred
But as Mavor Moore makes
his thrust at Shakespeare, I
can hear the Bard gasp, "Et tu,
Mavor?" —ken hodkinson

Vancouver audiences were
treated to a rousing performance last Sunday afternoon cf
Brahm's First Piano Concerto
in D minor. Claudio Arrau,
world famous Chilean pianist,
thrilled the listeners with his
excellent craftsmanship.
The great versatility of Ar-
rau's touch was extremely enjoyable. From playing in a
robust manner, with fire and
energy, he could change to a
light, airy passage and perform
it with "minute delicacy. His
performance was very dynamic, with surging melodies,
rich tone, and pleasing interpretation.
There seemed to be a remarkable affinity between the
pianist and the conductor, Irwin Hoffman.

Two items of programme
music were performed by the
Vancouver Symphony. Programme music is distinct from
absolute music in that it portrays a story or a concrete
subject rather than being totally abstract.
The first, Uirapuru, by Villa-
Lobos, a Brazilian composer,
was based on a legend of an
enchanted bird, Uirapuru. In
the style of South American
music, the piece was characterized by typical native rhythms
and dramatic, passionate melodies. The mysterious mood was
enhanced by forest sounds
made by various percussion instruments, some of Brazilian
• •    •
The work La Me? by Debussy reflected the composer's
love for the sea. Debussy's
vague, transparent style of
composition seemed especially
suited to such a subject.
The first section, From
Dawn Till Noon at Sea, used
muted instruments and complex rhythms. The music ebbed
and flowed like the sea. The
second, Play of the Waves,, was
light, gay and sparkling. Dialogue of the wind and the sea
was turbulent and menacing,
with the timpani rumbling
like the stormy wind at sea.

On February 6, 1964, the
Festival of Contemporary Arts
is showing, under the sponsorship of Cinema 16-UBC, Vernon Zimmerman's film To L.A.
with Lust as well as Swain by
Markopoulos. The program has
been advertised as costing 35
cents. Methinks, being a University festival, and being relatively cheap, the films should
be free.
At noon of the following
day, noted San Francisco film
critic Pauline Kael will speak
on some catch-all subject. This
should turn out to be very interesting. Kael can be, at turns,
gentle or exceedingly vicious
in her reviews; she usually
cuts deep.
• •    •
Kael has said of the American movie: "At the moment
San Francisco is so far behind
New York on the new foreign
films that I'd better limit myself to American movies. That
seems sensible and plausible.
Who would suspect that it's
really a dirty joke? Only those
who have been going to American movies. And who does go
to American movies?"
. . . and of Hollywood: "Perhaps the greatest service Hollywood could do the nation
would be to stop exporting
(their movies): our films are
turning us into fortune's fool."
Needless to say, you can expect
anything when you attend a
Pauline Kael lecture.
• •    •
I feel compelled to close
with another Kaelism, this
time about Billy Wilder's One.
Two, Three: "Just about every
reviewer of One, Two, Three-
has been enticed into shovelling it on . . . The critics have
been picking up their shovels
all right, but I think they're
digging the grave of humor.
One, Two, Three is overwrought, tasteless and offensive — a comedy that pulls
out laughs the way a catheter
draws urine."

The award for the best short
fictional film was presented to
Czechoslovakia for The Orator.
Combining animation and the
use of puppets, it is a satire on
human pride — depicting ir;
detail the effects an orator
imagines he will work upon
his audience, and their opposite
effect in reality, to which he
is oblivious. It is successful
in its thorough exploration of
the subject, in the range of
emotions evoked by popular
oratory and in technique — the
sharply characterizing details
of the puppets.
•    •    •
It is interesting to note the
developing scope of the animated film which is being used
not only to explore comic situations with more subtlety but
also to express more serious
themes. A film of much greater
significance than The Orator
was Everyday Chronicle, a
Yugoslav film in which the
abrupt, stylized treatment of
the cartoon proves a perfect
vehicle for a devastating attack on mechanized society,
one in which human life has
become so routined and depersonalized that a dog enters it
and takes part in all its activities — travelling, working,
eating, making love and dying
— without being noticed.
A special Jury award was
granted to France for a group
of films which, in the opinion
of the judges, were particularly outstanding. Although the
quality of the films as a whole
presumably merited an award,
one of these, L'oeuf a la coque,
which was singled out and re-
shown, illustrates the French
tendency, already noted in
Verre textile, to delight in
sound and visual effects unrelated to any content.
• •    •
L'oeuf depicts an ominous
surrealistic landscape — an
expanse of rippled sand broken
by glowing subterranean caverns and craters of blue water.
An egg, which is occasionally
convulsed with laughter, wobbles around on it, eventually
falling down a deep hole into
an awaiting egg-cup. Possibly
the film intends to convey
something, more probably it is
itself a satire on obscure symbolism; but lacking any recognizable theme it remains
simply a study in texture and
light — a suitable setting for
an allegory never expressed.
• •    •
The award for the best feature, granted unofficially by
the Canadian Association of
Film Societies, was presented
to another French film, Les
Abysses. This film was probably chosen because of the
novelty of its subject matter.
It was based on an actual
French criminal trial in 1930,
a study of two sisters who are
reduced to the level of animals
by contemptuous treatment
from their employers. The director exploits his subject matter to its fullest extent, creating a completely convincing
study of human animals.

Jaw ai Q£ J
After nervously clutching
mty coat in one hand and my
girl's hand in the other, I
climbed to the very top of the
QET to enjoy some true-blue
button-down   folksongs.
The singing of the Chad
Mitchell Trio was skilled with
out being too mechanical.
Their words were well enunciated — they could be heard
in the top row. Their harmony
was not a blur of decibles and
chords but rather a blend, like
good wine, of three voices and
two guitars.
•    •    •
The audience was quite unusual — there wasn't the usual
sing-along or clap-along. In
fact the audience was so quiet
at times that the QET took on
a religious air.
The Trio started off with
"Galveston"     and    worked
through songs about grail,
Billy Sol Estes, integration,
love and war along with a
beautiful rendition of "When
Johnny Comes Marching
The second half featured
their old time rousers "Hatchet
Lizzy" and "John Birch Society" and, in spite of the top-
ten appeal of these songs, they
were presented tongue-in-
cheek to a receptive audience.

worth, UBC was mentioned

On February 2 at 8:30 p.m.,
the stage of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre will see the start
of one of the most exciting jazz
concerts ever to play Vancouver. The participants will
be the Modern Jazz Quartet
and the Barney Kessel Trio.
Both groups are simply the
very best.
•    •    •
The personnel of the MJQ
are John Lewis, piano; Milt
Jackson, vibraharp; Connie
Kay, drums; and Percy Heath,
bass. Kessel, probably today's
best jazz guitarist, will be
working with local musicians
Don Thompson (bass) and
Terry Clarke (drums).
To say the MJQ has the impact of a big band might at
first sound ridiculous. But once
you've heard the group, you'll
believe it. The MJQ have a
drive, beat, and excitement
that is almost unbelievable for
a small group. Their music is
highly intellectual, structured,
and knowledgeable. Most of
the credit for this goes to John
Lewis, the musical director of
the MJQ.
The excitement of the MJQ
could be described as the
power of understatement, but
this is not to say they don't
swing — just listen to Milt
Jackson turned loose on something like his classic Blues-
One reason   for  the   MJQ's
. . jazz guitarist
. . . arranger, pianist
world-wide (especially European) popularity is their willingness to try anything. Their
repertoire ranges from traditional or standard jazz to film
sound-tracks, from music of the
sixteenth century Italian corn-
media dell'arte to third stream.
Another reason is the
group's sound of unity and affinity. There is very much a
group sound, but the individual talents are never lost. In
the MJQ's case, the whole is
much greater than .the sum
of the parts.
• •    •
Charlie Christian once told
Barney Kessel, "The main
thing is to concentrate on
swing." So now try and stop
him from swinging. Kessel is
self-taught and learned to
swing so naturally and easily
that he'd have a very difficult
time showing someone how not
to. This ease and drive is the
greatest feature of Kessel's
style. Big bands, Jazz at the
Philharmonic tours and the
Oscar Peterson Trio have all
known Kessel's guitar magic.
Kessel plays the guitar much
like a horn, using a single-
string approach to give his
music a firm and definite
• •    •
Kessel is also something of
a musical intellectual. His
music is structured and interrelated as much as the MJQ's.
Another similarity here is Kessel's and the MJQ's feeling for
the blues — which are made
for both groups. Kessel especially had "funk" and "soul"
long before other jazz musicians were aware that these
were something to consciously
work for.
Let's put it this way: If you
miss this concert, stop calling
yourself a jazz buff. It's going
to be quite a show.

Last February Innsbruck afforded the skiing enthusiast an
exciting if not somewhat quieter preview of the Olympic
races taking place this month.
Upon arrival in the city,
finding a room in a "Gasthaus"
in an old part of town was an
easy matter. It would cost only
ninety cents and a full-course
meal $1.20.

singing over a card game and
beer or wine never failed to
complement an evening, and

If you trespassed while attempting to gain a vantage

one of the omnipresent Austrian soldiers forced you back.
Once the race began the excited babbling of ten tonic dialects always became an awed
hush as Perillat, Schrauz, Zimmerman, Lacroix and other top
skiers raced by. Then the
voices would burst forth in applause  and  assessment.

The term "absurd" has been
applied to the suggestion that
UBC could at some future date
compete with the larger universities of the U.S. west
coast. Granted that the transformation of Thunderbird
sports from their present
state to a level at which we
would provide competition
for these schools would take
a long time. But to me there
is no reason (given some clear
and progressive thinking on
the part of some of the
school's leaders) why UBC
cannot do so someday.
Far-fetched?   No, sir.

When we columnists get an
idea in our heads, we tend to
forget or to overlook obvious
answers to our arguments in
our hurry to slam our
thoughts down on paper. A
case in point is the assertion
in a recent column by one
of us that scholarships would
cause no improvement in
UBC sports because of poor
high school athletics in the
city. Ignoring the originator's
misrepresentation of a local
high school's success south of
the border, I feel safe in suggesting that some form of financial aid would yield an increase in the quality of UBC
athletic teams.
How about the Vancouver
bred BC. Lions who chose to
head south after their high
school days? People like Paul
Seale, Pete Ohler, Greg Find-
lay, Barney Therrien, Jim
Carphin, and Pat Claridge, all
sought to further their athletic careers in U.S. colleges.
