New blaze hits campus
$2,000 damage
caused in fire
Fire raced through the wood-frame Forestry and Geology Building Thursday night, causing an estimated $1,500
to $2,000 damage.
Police and fire officials refuse to say whether the fire
had any connection with three other minor fires believe'd set
in wastebaskets by a firebug Wednesday night.
Three   false   alarms   shortly
after the forestry building fire
sent firemen to the Library, the
Thea Koerner building and the
administration building.
The forestry building fire
was discovered about 6:30 p.m.
by two third-year forestry students, Don Cutterham and
Dave Parker, as they returned
from dinner and headed for an
upstairs reading room in the
"We were just going upstairs
when we noticed smoke in the
hallways," said Cutterman.
"We raced up the stairs into
the men's washroom and check
ed the wastebaskets. When we
didn't find anything, we checked downstairs again and found
the whole floor of the building was hot.
"We turned in the alarm immediately."
Fireman responded immediately, as the building is only a
few hundred yards from the
fire hall on the West Mall. It
took more than an hour to put
out the fire.
The blaze started under a
stairway at the northeast corner of the basement near telephone lines.
50-50 chance of arson

struck three times Wednesday night in different buildings. Firemen managed to strike
out this blaze before it spread to rest of the building, but another blaze Thursday night
caused  extensive  damage to  the   Forestry and Geology Building.
Access to the basement is
gained through a door at
the head of the stairway and a
small door leading through a
crawl space behind room  100.
Buildings and grounds' superintendent' Tom Hughes said
chances were 50-50 that the fire
was set by an arsonist.
"But this fire is away from
the pattern of last night's," he
Hughes said the damage
would amount to between
$1,500 and $2,000.

Vic College 'gives frosh a chance'
You're plotting life of a man'
Victoria College won't forsake its philosophy to toughten
its entrance rules.
Victoria College Registrar
Ron Jeffels said Thursday the
college will not raise its entrance requirement to 60 per
cent as UBC and Simon Fraser
are planning.
•    •    •
"Our philosophy of education allows for a wide variety
of candidates — everyone
should not have to belong to
an elite to get an education,"
said Jeffels.
He said high school records
don't show if a candidate is university material.
"We know only at the end of
first year whether a candidate
can cope with university," he
said. "The university cannot
sort on the basis of a high
school record."
•    •    •
So, Jeffels said, Victoria will
stick to requiring 50 per cent
on junior matric exams.
"You are plotting the life of
a man for the rest of his days,"
said Jeffels. "This must be the
first consideration, and it is a
duty to be carried out with wisdom and kindness."
About   400   freshmen   candi
dates at UBC will be affected
by the 60 per cent entry requirement—10 per cent of the
freshman class.
Jeffels said raising the entrance marks will lower autonomy at UBC and SFA.
"The higher marks required
of students will turn over their
selection to the department of
education," he said.
•    •    •
The department marks the
junior matric exams.
Jeffels said the university,
not the education department,
should say whether a candidate
lis suitable.
He was replying to Dr. Gor
don Shrum, who said Wednesday: "I am told Victoria College will continue to accept
people on the 50-to-60 per cent
•    •    •
Jeffels said that different
high schools meant abilities
might be concealed unless the
university could look over the
aspirant itself.
He said: "We haven't all gone
to modern, well-equipped, big-
town high schools.
'tWe must be mindful of
people from high schools that
are not served as well."

to the president at UBC.
setting the three fires on Wednesday.
Scott said: "He has to be
stopped before he burns down
half the campus."
Scott said anyone seeing persons acting in a suspicious manner should not hesitate to contact either campus RCMP or
the fire marshal's office.
He said he suspects a student is responsible for the fires.
"They were very similar to a
series of small blazes lit early
in December," Scott said.
"There were no fires over the
These incidents are not to be
taken lightly—if they keep up
we just might have to return
to the old Fairview shacks for
classes," he added.
The most serious fire Wednesday resulted in $100 damage
to the men's washroom on the
second floor of the old arts
Minutes later firemen were
called to the Buchanan building to douse a fire which was
started in a wastepaper basket
in a men's washroom.
And while firemen were
fighting this blaze, another one
was started in the washroom in
south Brock.
Damage to the Buchanan
washroom was roughly $75,
while damage in south Brock
was negligible.

Abolish co-ordinator
Council asked to revamp
old publications setup
The AMS co-ordinator of
publications has called for
sweeping changes in the administration of AMS publications.
In a report to student council, co-ordinator Laurie Frisby
called for:
• Abolition of the position
of co-ordinator of publications,
whidh is now held by a student.
• Hiring of a permanent
paid director of student publications.
• Establishment of a board
of student publications which
would oversee all publications
of the AMS.
The recommendations apply
to The Ubyssey, Totem, Bird
Calls and Tuum Est, and other
official AMS publications.
Council has set up a committee to study the proposals.
Frisby said the present publications' set-up is unworkable.
He said the work load is too
heavy for students to bear and
that there is lack of continuity
in policy and planning.
He said publications is big
business and needs an expert in
accounting and publications to
oversee it.
"Basically it is a combination of too much work and too
little experience which creates
the problem.
"Publications at UBC need
direction and guidance from a
person    able    to    spend    full
time at his job and maintain
continued interest in his work,"
said Frisby.
The director would direct advertising, budgets, and the letting of contracts for printing.
Frisby said he should be
paid $6,000 to $7,500 a year.
The board of student publications would co-ordinate all publications and oversee the paid
It would set financial policy
for all publications and appoint
the  editors  of  all  except  The
The Ubyssey editor would
continue to be appointed by
council on the recommendation of The Ubyssey editorial
The board would consist of
editors of the student publications, the second vice-president
of the AMS, and three other
members. The director would
be an ex-officio member.

In Africa
White and Black
cant live together
Any   hopes   of   workable   multi-racism   in   emerging
African nations are now dead.
Democracy and personal
freedoms as we know them are
unknown in the new Africa because Africans have traded a
so-called "colonial" dictatorship for a poorer, "black" one.
These are the views of Alfred H. Adams, secretary to
Roy Welensky, former prime
minister of the Central African
Adams said the failure of the
Central African Republic in
1963 meant other African nations would abandon any policies of co-operation between
whites and blacks in Africa.
"There is no longer a place
for the white man in Africa."
CAR was a bold plan brought
about jointly by the British,
Nyasaland and Northern and
Southern Rhodesian governments, said Adams, to give
them independence under a
multi-racial federal government.
"We hoped that Africa could
develop something new — let
black and white forget differences, work together, seek
goals for the future, and raise
the standards of the ignorant.
"It was economically feasible, and all concerned in the
government tried their best,
but either the job was too big,
or the effort was not good
"One reason the federation
failed was that the whites did
not give way fast enough and
the blacks wanted immediate
The desire for a standard of
living equivalent to that of the
white man is extremely prevalent in emerging Africa, said
Adams, and will lead to trouble
in the future.
African leaders, promising
the masses all the luxuries and
the standard of living of t h e
West once independence is attained,  have  to   impose  rigid
dictatorships on their people
once their country is "free,"
if any progress at all is to be
made, he- said.
In the case of CAR, said
Adams, nationalism has broken
up an economically sound organization into three differently-governed countries. In the
case of very backward Nyasaland, Prime Minister Banda
shows many signs of setting up
a Fascist-like dictatorship.
fea Southern Rhodesia, on the
other hand, the whites have
refused to give up power and
are adopting South African
apartheid policies, he said.
The best bet in all of Africa,
according to Adams, is Northern Rhodesia, led by capable,
democratic and moderately-
conservative Kenneth-Kaunda.
"The good intentions of t h e
United States are becoming
suspect in the eyes of African
leaders, due to the unworkable
combination of idealism and
the protection of their business
interests put forward by the

Liberal says
Scholarship plan
not forgotten'
The Liberal government hasn't forgotten its promise to
give 10,000 scholarships to university students.
The scholarships wil be com
ing but other government business is more pressing, natural
resources minister Jack Nicholson told UBC Liberal Club
"The scholarship still holds,"
he said. "But I can't say when
it will be implemented."
Nicholson said the Great
Lakes shipping problem and
the portable pension scheme
pushed the scholarship plan to
a lower priority.
He said also the government
should stop sending military
attaches abroad.
"Most of them cost the country $20,000 a year," he said.
"I'd rather see the money
spent for trade commissionaires."
"This is only one of thousands of ways in which money
is being misspent," the minister said.
Nicholson added that since the
Liberal government took office
"order is gradually being restored."
"It is not an overstatement
to say that government was in
a state of chaos when we took
it over," he said.
Nicholson said Prime Minister Pearson has succeeded in
restoring Canada's badly-damaged foreign image.

Pure academics
Students, and particularly those connected with
student government and other AMS activities, would
do well to consider the implications of the administration's decision to tighten up entrance and eligibility
In the first place, last month's announcement was
undoubtedly only the first of many which can be expected as academic standards go up and the enrolment
crush reaches its peak in the next few years.
It's likely that the powers that be will re-institute,
among other things, the Christmas failure system; and
students in upper-year programs will find themselves
having to maintain higher averages just to stay around.
What this will mean to UBC's tradition of high student involvement in extra-curricular affairs is anybody's
One good test should be next month's AMS elections
With academic requirements stiffer than ever, the need
for good candidates is even greater.
If candidates cannot be found who are both intelligent enough to pass their academic load, as well as
administer an ever-growing student society, then UBC
might find itself in the position of Columbia and Chicago Universities—two of the better academic schools
in the U.S., but ones in which student activities have
become extinct.
Maturity cannot be measured in years.
Recent proposals to lower the voting age to 18 are
not a concession to a political whim, ideally, but a
result of an awareness that today's 18-year-old is generally as well-educated and as politically mature as 21-year-
olds were a generation ago.
If a person cannot assess issues of current political
import and make a rational choice at 18, he's not going
to do very much better when he reaches the magic age
of 21.
This age-limit criterion of maturity is also applied
to drinking and making contracts. It is true that some
age limits must be established; but it would seem that
a person mature enough to intelligently conduct every
other aspect of his life at the age of 18 should also be
able to consume alcohol and enter into contracts.
Disregard for the law breeds contempt for law
itself, and there are few who will not admit that the
drinking-age law is generally disregarded.
And so, perhaps, it should be. What justification
can there be for legislation that an 18-year-old is not
mature enough to consume alcohol, should he desire to
do so? When laws run counter to the realities of our
society and the reason of the individual it is society's
respect for the law that suffers more than individuals.
In fact, a mature attitude toward alcohol is somewhat impaired by the age limit—for human nature being
what it is, forbidden fruits taste sweetest.
The mantle of responsibility for the future of our
nation and our society is falling upon younger and younger shoulders. And today's youth is being prepared to
accept its responsibilities because of the increasing
emphasis on education.
Those who are assiduously preparing for the future
at 18 should, at that age, be permitted to share in both
the responsibilities and privileges which our society
demands and offers.

Phil TOO: Pluto a breeze
Here's  why  some   50%   of
the freshmen at UBC fail.
Philosophy  100
Christmas Exam 1963
Question: What is Plato's
conception of democ racy?
Contrast it with his ideal state
(The Republic) and offer a defence of democracy.
Answer: Pluto's ideal state
was idealistic. It was two idealistic to be real. His concept
of democracy was real. It was
to real to be idealistic. Pluto
did not say that all men are
not unequal.
• •    •
He put forth the notion that
some men have more culpa-
bilitys than others. I disagree.
I feel that all men should be
equal. Or at least they should
try to be mostly equal.
Pluto's ideal state stressed
absolute roole. I disagree.
Man is a finite being. As such,
he should be capable to roole
himself. My Sunday school
teacher (Harry Schmuk) says
that man has dignity. Christian men anyWays. So does
the Reader's Digest. Pluto disagrees. He feels that the state
is not four man. But that man
is four the state.
• *    •
His auxilllarees couldn't
even marry anyone who they
wanted. I feel it unCanadian
to avocate trial marriges. I
disagree. I feel that women
are NOT equal to men. There
IS a difference. We must nev-
mother used to tell me that
girls were different from boys.
Pluto dissagres. He put
forth that girls could roole
also. My dad agrees with
Pluto. But my doctor showed
me how different girls are.
(My girlfriend showed me
how difficult they are).
But getting back too the
question on hand. I would
er forget that they are essentially eunuch to men. My
sum up by saying in conclusion, finally, to make a long
story short, so to speak, as it
were, being this the case, the
party of the second part . . .
etc. . . , that Plato was in air
and me and my mom and Sunday school teacher and the
Reader's Digest are right.
Sockratease was Pluto's
menthol (or menthor??) and
he was killed for atheism. So
Pluto must of being anti-Christian to thus his state wouldn't
be popular today even.
And since he wouldn't be
voted in by a majority, and
since we are a democracy
where the majority rules absolutely, then we can dismise
Pluto rite now. His state was
a bad political.
In summation I would say
that democracy has high
hopes for being superior
to slave camp communism
P.S. Dear Mr. ( Imean DR!)
X, I'm running out of time,
that preshus quality called
time, so please understand
that I really know all the
question but the time is running out now and I'm short of

SUB on the move:
in realm of reality
AMS   Co-ordinator
Prior    to     the    November
referendum    many    students
objected   to   the   student   body
assuming    the    cost    of    SUB
"Why has our student
council not attempted to reduce the financial cost by
government or private support?"
The   answer   was   simple.
You cannot obtain financial
support   for   a dream.
Student endorsement has
raised the SUB program to
the realm of reality.
The support of the fee referendum later this month
will ensure a reasonable term
of finance. It will be up to the
efforts of student council anr!
subsequent councils to makt
every effort to reduce the financial   term still  further. Friday,  January   10,   1964

Billy Liar! playing at the
Varsity, is one of the top films
to come out of Britain in
1963. Starring Tom Courtenay
as Billy Fisher, a born prevaricator, and Julie Christie as
Liz, his travelling friend,
Billy LiEir! manages to be extremely enjoyable despite a
few striking faults. This is
due, almost wholly, to Courte-
n a y's excellent acting. He
struts, mimes, shouts and
screams with such visual articulation it is hard to criticize
on other levels except acting.
His help-mates, Julie Christie,
Helen Fraser as Barbara and
Gwendolyn Watts as Rita are
all equally competent in their
supporting roles.
• •    •
The main fault of Billy Liar!
is its doubtful position as a
comedy. There are so many
changes of pace and mood
that one could not refer to it
as pure comedy. At times it is
actually unfunny and fatally
(to comedy at least) sombre.
The best example is in the
final scenes when Billy's
grandmother dies and he is
visibly shaken by the ordeal.
At other times it is bright
and fast — especially in the
first shots of Julie Christie as
she hops and jumps along
sidewalks and boulevards.
Here the camera zooms in and
out, shoots through store windows and across streets much
in the fashion of A Bout de
Souffle ("Breathless") and
Tirez Sur Le Pianist ("Shoot
The   Pianist").
• •    •
The phantasy machine gunning and hand-grenading of
his friends becomes a trifle
monotonous, relieved only by
periodic imaginary visits to
Ambrosia, the country where
Billy is conqueror, dictator,
victorious general, cabinet
minister and so on. And also
there's the clever shot (still in
phantasy, of course) of mum
and dad, dressed in luxurious
clothes with mum saying "How
dreary: Billy's pissed again."
Billy Liar! is nonetheless
very much a light drama,
chock full of comedy—not
really consistent in any way,
but very entertaining. It is a
film with more than a few artistic faults but still with great
audience  appeal.

Charade, a puzzle by which
a masquerade is interpreted
and found out, just about sums
up the meaning of the movie
title, too.
'Charade' has been advertised as a motion picture with
all that could possibly be de
sired: romance, suspence,
thrills, comedy, technicolor,
two of Hollywood's biggest
names and so forth and so on.
Strangely enough, 'Charade' is
just that.
For once, the advertisers
haven't doubled a half truth
and then squared it to build
up a grade B movie. Even
though such a combination is
breaking all the rules of motion picture screenplay from
an artistic viewpoint, it still
succeeds, in   my opinion.

As stars Cary Grant and
Audrey Hepburn constitute
male wolf and female lamb,
the inevitable romance occurs. So, for those who lap it
up, it's there—complete with
Cary carrying on romantically
as ever, even though he's
grey-haired,  face-lined and 60.
Suspense has us puzzling
over such questions as: Is
Peter really Carson Dyal?
Will Audrey really have a
nervous breakdown? Will Cary
fall off the roof? And why
doesn't she see the light? And
what has she done with the
loot (if she's got it?) Yes—
breathtaking suspense with an
upper case  S.
• •    •
And there's just OUNCES of
thrills—an exciting chase at
the end and a series of spine
chilling murders in between:
One person drowned in a bath;
one gets bound with his face
inside a plastic bag and his
mouth open; one gets bloodied
at the bottom of an elevator
shaft and then is found dead
in bed with his eyes open.
And, most important, the real
villain goes down through a
trap door with no rope to stop
• •    •
Despite  my   sarcasm, I  jest
you not—the picture does have
everything in the above list.
And if you can stand the
constant switching of moods
(which I could), then it's worth
the buck they charge—whether
you go for entertainment, escape, emotion or education. After all, there are several novel
methods of murder depicted.

Banry Hall finished his
eight day show at the Attic to
a nearly empty house.
Those who have heard Barry
will, 'realize the small turnout
was more a reflection of Vancouver's attitude toward folk
music rather than a panning
of Barry's ability. Barry Hall
is the best blues guitarist I
have ever seen perform.
He plays with far greater
imagination and precision than
any but the very best of the
jazz and/or blues "names" recording in the USA. He conveys feeling and human insight without resorting to
phoney throat-catches and
snarls that render many otherwise good blues singers inarticulate.
•    •    •
As a banjo picker he has no
serious rivals locally, and
plays much better than the
lads in the popular so-called _
folk groups like the Kingston
Trio and the Limelighters.
Yet Barry Hall's technical
achievement, in a most significant way, is only a part of
his excellence as a creative
personality. The intensity of
his involvement in and enthu
siasm for musical expression
has hit a level where it is not
appreciated by the womb-
people who think folk-music
is all Hootenannies and groups
of clean-shaven collegiates
who sing Michael Row the
Boat  Ashore.
The point is that artists
with Barry's passion and ability might soon have to confine themselves to serious jazz
audiences if they want to be
listened to in the way that a
genuine human creator needs
to be heard—the way in which
a brilliant chord progression
is felt as a statement of the
heart and guts rather than noticed as a clever trick.

A modern-type bluegrass
group calling themselves the
Willow Creek Ramblers are
currently playing at the Attic,
on Broadway. They are musically proficient and acutely
wry in the humor department.
On their tours up and down

good crowds; their ambition to
urbanize bluegrass is apparently being realized and appreciated.

The Bunk House is featuring the Yomen, a trio consisting of Al West (base), Roger

They accurately describe
themselves as commercial, but
admitted commercialism is an
