Pep Meet seethes with

Homecoming Pep Rally 1964
was a wild mixture of cheering
students, gyrating cheerleaders,
nervous Homecoming queens,
noise and fun, all seething to a
boil in the hot, jam-packed
Memorial Gym.
The rally opened with curvaceous cheerleaders kicking
high to the Waring music of
the Pep Band.
Then master of ceremonies
Cameron Bell called up head
football coach Frank Gnup
who presented his hulking football players.
Next on was AMS president
Roger McAfee who entered to

UBC will be without a sports stadium for at least two
- A new $500,000 stadium is -;
going to be built but not until V
The old Thunderbird Stadium standing on the site of the
new student union building,
will be destroyed by next fall.
UBC Architect-planner John
Porter says a 22-acre site on the
south end of the campus has
been tentatively chosen for the
new stadium.
The site will be adjacent to
111 acres of land set aside in
present planning as a site for
a complex of athletic facilities
and fields.
A new $55,000 track is now
being developed in this area
and $27,000 worth of improvements have already been spent
on the present Wolfson field
Dr. Robert Osborne, head of
the Physical Education faculty
and member of the Men's Athletic Committee, said cost of
the new stadium has not yet
been determined.
He said he hopes it can be
modeled after the Bellingham
civic stadium where the University of Western Washington
plays its  major sports  events.
The Bellingham stadium has
5,000 covered seats and 1,000
He estimated the cost would
likely be between $500,000 and
$1 million.
Asked about replacing athletic fields and facilities in the
west end of the campus where
the old stadium is located,
Dean Mathews, chairman of the
president's committee on Physical Education and Recreational Facilities said:

Beat life
in Camps
The president's report
on academic goals approves of the beatnik life
in Fort and Acadia Camp.
It states:
"The bohemian casual-
ness of social contact is
one foundation for an active student community."
"The community spirit
which the camps have
fostered should be put to
better use, and should
certainly be preserved
when the camps are finally replaced."
More on report
See Page 3
However the report admits beatnik living is not
fit for students.
'' The accommodation
provided is spartan—almost sub-standard — the
furnishings (are) rudimentary, and conditions
crowded and noisy, often
making study difficult,"
the report said.

he told The Ubyssey Thursday,

Gottlieb was to have sung at
the Pep Meet Thursday, but fog
caused the grounding of connecting aircraft.
"I feel I have a calling—like
to the ministry—to help improve trade between Russia
and the U.S.," Gottlieb said.
He spent last summer in Russia where he became interested
in Russian showbusiness.
"I want to apply to some
foundation like the Rockefeller
Foundation for money to write
" a book on this," he said.
Gottlieb returned to San
Francisco Thursday night
where he has enrolled in the
University of California to
study Russian, English and
Scottish ballads.

Students clean
says VD expert
University students do not contribute any more heavily
to venereal disease than any other non skid-road portion
of society.
Foggy Louis
misses Meet
There was no light for Limelighter Lou Gottlieb Thursday.
AMS executives and the Special Events Committee were
frantic trying to get the singer
and comedian to the gym in
time for the pep rally.
At 9:30 Thursday morning
word was received that Gottlieb was unable to leave San
Francisco airport.
After getting clearance the
plane headed for Vancouver
but had to land in Seattle.
Fog again.
More fog at Vancouver International Airport caused the
plane to be rerouted to Abbotsford.
Meanwhile, Graeme Vance,
Co-ordinator of Activities,
phoned all the helicopter companies within 100 miles in an
effort to bring him in from
No one would take  the job.
When Gottlieb finally landed |
at Abbotsford, at 1:15, he drove
to campus. But he didn't make
it jn time.
In an interview Thursday
Herbert C. Sexton, Superintendent of Epidemology in Venereal Diseases for B.C. said:
"The percentage of cases
among University students is
no higher than the rest of the
respectable portion of the population."
"But that is due only to the
good health education they receive in school," he said.
Sexton said most students
who come down to his clinic,
B.C. VD Control Centre, are
not infected. "They just want
to make sure they're clean," he
"However," Sexton continued, "since not everyone has
been educated to the hazards
of promiscuity, it is only a matter of time until syphillis and
gonorrhea reach the higher
social  strata.
"And then there WILL be a
venereal disease epidemic."
He asked for more co-operation from the respectable segment of society.
"Anyone having illicit sexual relationships of any kind
should have a test," he added.
VD reached its highest peak
in 1946-47 with 5,000 cases of
gonorrhea and 650 cases of
syphilis in B.C., he said.
In 1955, the lowest year in
history for venereal diseases,
syphilis dropped to 13 cases
and gonorrhea to 1,600.
However, in 1963-64, a 400
r>er cent increase over the previous year brought the total to
"300 syphilis cases and 16,000
gonorrhea cases.
Commenting on this sharp
increase in syphilis, Sexton
said it was disconcerting.
"Because though there are
many cases of gonorrhea, syphilis is even more infectious and
the more dangerous."
This year the Department of
Epidomiology expects an increase of at least 40 per cent
of known cases over last year.
University students who
want to make sure can go to
Wesbrook for a simple blood
test, but for absolute proof, the

has accepted the obligation to
replace all existing fields and
facilities when they are taken
over for new academic and student facilities."
Planning of the new stadium
has been delayed because it
has been difficult to locate an
adequate  site.
The problem, said Porter, is
that the location of the Sixteenth Avenue extension has
not yet been determined
Discussions on the proposed
new road are underway with
the provincial government.
Probable date for completion
of the new stadium is 1967 but
there is small chance it could
be ready by fall of 1966.
Meanwhile major UBC
sports events will have to be
played off campus. And UBC
will have to bear the extra cost
of renting outside downtown
The athletic office will also
be losing revenue which the
old stadium is now earning.
But there is also the possibility that UBC's teams will make
a big hit downtown and earn
more revenue than they are
now taking in at the old stadium.

The New CANONFXReflex Is The Answer
To A Photo Bugs Prayer
What features would you like in your dream reflex? Well odds
are. the new CANON PX has them and some you never thought of.
How ahout a built-in Cds. shutter-coupled meter (no bulge, ultra
sensitive, always there if you need it)? The FX has it. How about
a camera that has that "right" feel in your hands? The FX is undoubtedly the smallest, slimest, easiest handling reflex-meter combination made. Would you want a lock-up mirror, a built in self
timer, a shutter release lock, automatic adjusting flash syne
through one contact, a built-in accessory clip (mounted rigidly atop
the prism) and a meter on-off and battery check switch? Well the
FX has them all! Of course you would want to have: automatic
diaphram, instant-return mirror, auto-reset frame counter, depth
of field preview and a shutter from 1 to 1/1000 sec. & B. Most important of all: a top quality, extremely well finished body and the
Canon 5(1 mm f. 1.8 (one of the very top lenses of the world). The
entire system offers Canon lenses from 19 to "1000 mm including the
ama/ing new Canon 55-135 mm Zoom lens. The most unbelievable
part of this dream is the price. The new CANON FX lists for only
$24!l.f>0 and we are offering it right now for under $200.00 including
the case. Compare that to the price of any ordinary reflex with
the case, the meter and the accessory clip. We think you'll want^ to
come in and see the new CANON FX.

Self - probing
A year's
in report
The report of UBC president
John Macdonald's committee
"on student goals was the result
of more than a year's self-
analysis by the university.
As an outcome of the original Macdonald report on B.C.
higher education the president's committee was set up in
July last year.
It's purpose was to examine
the structure of our own uni-
versity and to answer the basic
questions: Where are we going?
And how?
To answer these, the committee of seven UBC professors
and one Senate member has
worked for over a year.
It met at least once a week
in that time, with some all-day
sessions for no extra remuneration. A vast amount of information was considered by the
"It must be realized, however" said committee member
Dr. Kenneth Mann, "the report
must be considered only as a
beginning, and that a continuing process of self-analysis
must be carried on."
Committee member Dr. Robert Scagel, noted the report
emphasized flexibility and encouraged experimentation.
"Although there seemed to
be general support for the report," said Scagel, "it is also
profitable to make people
The views of students were
not sought after directly in
compiling the report, but Dr.
Mann agreed this step could be
a logical extension of the report.
He said he thought the personal experiences of the committee members reflected the
feelings of the students.
He also said the report does
not necessarily represent the
feelings of the faculty as a
whole and is still subject to
ratification and approval.
Frosh likes
entrance idea
Frosh treasurer Brian
Staples is in favour of the raised entrance standards recommended in the administration's
report on academic goals released Wednesday.
"The adoption of more difficult entrance exams is a good
thing," said Staples, "but if the
exams are the same standards
as those in the US, they will
prove useless."
Staples would not comment
on the recommendation to
make entrance regulations for
first year failures more stringent.
Little reaction
to report plans
At press time Friday there
had been little faculty reaction to president Dr. John
Macdonald's report.
"It's a long report," pointed out Dr. John Norris, head
of the faculty association. He
said many faculty members
had not yet read it.

Oh, woe is us
Ah, but the world is full of wicked, lusty animals—
called males.
At least that's the impression we get after taking a
look at the new Totem Park Women's Residences.
Eight-foot walls, barred gates, spotlights, an alarm
system and a little gadget called the "buzzer-box" combine to give the residences a prison-like atmosphere.
The "buzzer-box" is a ringer. This little device picks up
every word from outside the door—intimate or otherwise— and faithfully transmits comments inside to the
porter and all who are within ear-shot.
But far from criticizing the residences (which we
have, on the odd occasion, seen fit to do this year) we
recommend adoption of these devices everywhere on
It is obviously unfair to the girls in Totem as the
present system stands.
We can remember a night in Acadia camp when the
rain was pounding down and we were getting thoroughly
soaked while knocking on the door of a woman's hut
with the handle of our umbrella.
We remember further compounding our error by
walking into the hut and seeing a clothesline with a
string of CENSORED on it.
We remember also walking down the hall and entering a room which had all the young ladies in the hut
dressed in various stages of CENSORED.
But in Totem this could never happen.
Just what the designers of the Totem residences are
trying to prove is questionable.
As a protection against burglars spotlights are commendable.
The  eight-foot  walls   are,  however,   surmountable.
.  And any keen burglar could surely enter the residences
by day and wait until night to do his foul deeds.
We must then conclude that the residences are designed to thwart frustrated young men.
Which is foolish.
Which is also impossible—since the development of
the automobile all the foul things a young man might
do in a woman's residence can be accomplished in a car.
Thusly, we recommend that all women be required
to carry around:
one (1) spotlight
one  (1)  section of eight-foot wall.
one (1) buzzer-bOx
one (1) large bell for awakening people.
And since further criticism of the residences is
unnecessary at this time we'll just sum up the situation
in a few choice words:
"Oh my GodI Isn't that the Chancellor of Simon Fraser Academy,
Dr. Gordon Shrum, the famous physicist?"

Sex and more sex from sea to sea
Sex has done it again.
An article on pre-marital
sex appeared in the Carleton
University campus newspaper
September 25.
Within a week the story
had appeared in almost every
campus paper across Canada.
It had also created a national
•    *    •
Not for the subject matter,
that's for sure.
Pre-marital   sex   has   been
chased across campus columns
so often it has  ceased to become news even to university
■ students.
But this angle was somewhat different.
The writer was not a frustrated   student   and  he   was
not   a    publicity-hungry   lecturer.
He was, instead, one Rev.
Gerald W. Paul, interdenominational chaplain at Carleton
University in Ottawa.
•    •    •
The effect of his unusually
liberal views put Mr. Paul in
an embarrassing situation, to
say the least. There was some
talk of his losing his position
at Carleton but reports since
indicate he will continue as
university chaplain.
One passage of Mr. Paul's
article aroused the most controversy:
"Unless we are sure that
the contemplated sexual union
will contribute to the growth
of the other person we leave
it alone.
"Only if we are certain the
sexual relationship will help
more than harm our partner
(in the long run as well as in
the immediate encounter) will
we be justified in pre-marital
Over the story the paper
ran the headline, "Pre-marital
Sex Can Be OK."
The next day Mr. Paul
charged the headline was
He didn't get very far.
The moderator of the United Church of Canada agreed
the coverage of the story was

The paper did not ask for
the story. It was contributed
voluntarily by Mr. Paul and
was printed in its entirety.
So why the big fuss?
Mr.  Paul  expressed   views

of today's students and practiced by a good many of them.
The only reason his position
got national coverage is that
he is a minister.
But note:
He is not advocating wholesale sex with no restrictions.
He is not advocating prostitution.

He always upholds love as
the criterion for the sexual
So let's leave M!r. Paul to

the needs of the growing
academically-oriented minority.
This will entail increased
emphasis on academic needs
and intellectual programs.
2. Improvements in student
services—the problems of
housing, health, food and employment services are ever-
present. They must be dealt
with effectively; but they are
not the AMS's sole concern.

At present, growing lack of

shown in the chronic lack of
candidates for council positions as well as the low percentage of voters in a leth-
argic electorate.
The fact that Rhodes scholars (my personal view of the

recently to be less and less involved in the machinations of
Brock politics, indicates both
the present calibre of student

A New Conservative defends
the Goldwater Image — 'his
stands are consistent to
the point ot unpopularity
— lie has reed courage'
PF  Two
Pacific Student Press
"I come to bury Caesar,"
was Mark Antony's alibi to
the Shakespearean version
of the Roman mob, "not to
praise him."
Why are there so few Antonys on hand to perform
even this tongue-in-cheek
service for a living Gold-
water? Certainly there are
many who want to bury the
man, and praise or analysis
be damned. Or: try to find a
single critic who is prepared
to offer Goldwater an honest word of praise.
It appears that if you are
an American opposed to
Goldwater, you can only
feel a gut hatred with no
middle ground for compromise or afterthought acknowledgement.
Yet Goldwater's strong
points, when you get around
to them, are strong enough
to make the most rabid anti-
Goldwaterite pause. He has
raised more fundamental
questions in a month of campaign than any Republican
in five years.
A dozen focussed discontents in American life have
not only been able to find
expression in the political
arena, but in a single presidential candidacy. He has
dared to campaign, not as a
me-too candidate in the fashion of American political
candidates but as a polarized
alternative: "a choice," as he
puts it, "not an echo." Whatever his errors of speech,
his stands have been consistent to the point of unpopularity.
Not only has Barry Gold-
water been controversial: he
has been so deliberately, in
just the places where this
could be expected to cost
him votes. It was in the poverty - stricken Appalachians
that he opened his broadside
on Johnson's anti-poverty
bill. It was in Chicago and
New York that he spoke up
against federalized "urban
renewal". It was farm country that saw his major attack on the agricultural
subsidy fiasco.
At the very least, this is
a high courage that is seldom met within the political arena. It, is removed
from the polished campaign
expedient and the all-inclusive slogan — not that these
do not crop up elsewhere in
the Goldwater campaign, but
that they are not the key to
the real man or his policies.
Is Goldwater a "reactionary"?
If the term implies a lack
of awareness of contemporary fact, that is the last
charge that can be applied
to Barry Goldwater.
His foreign policy stands
are so closely related to contemporary fact that it would
have been difficult even to
define them five years ago:
They are about Cuba NOW,
South Viet Nam NOW, the
NATO Alliance NOW. Or is
it a label on his "attitudes"?
Since when has "victory" as
an objective become "reactionary"? Since when has
an attempt to define a direction become an obsolete
branch of political diplomacy? Those who accuse Gold-
water of "reaction" simply
because he speaks of "traditions" should listen again—
to Lyndon Johnson. They
may be surprised.
The other anti-Goldwater
labels are so far-fetched that
they need only cursory attention from the thoughful.
Even Roy Wilkins of the
NAACP, who can scarcely
be called an unbiased observer, does not accuse him
of being racist or a segregationist: those who need fur-'
ther proof need only examine his NAACP and Urban
League membership, his
pioneering efforts at desegregation in Arizona, long before he ever thought of running for public office and
without break or interruption since that time. (And
who, one wonders, was campaigning in Texas on a platform to limit federal and
Supreme Court jurisdiction
on integration?)
The two most vicious
charges made against Barry
Goldwater turn out, on
closer scrutiny, also to be
the most irrelevant ones.
The "itchy finger" bit exists
only in the fertile imaginations of the anti-Goldwater
crew. Nowhere has Gold-
water ever made a statement
about USING the bomb;
even his South Viet Nam remarks concerned the CONSIDERATION of a plan that
Goldwater BELIEVED involved POSSIBLE use of
tactical nuclear weapons (it
turned out, later, that the
plan he referred to did not:
but that was too late, the
anti-Goldwater labels had
already been printed.) The
NATO issue also was one of
deployment, not use: and
moreover one which is already tacit U.S. policy.

d i c t o r y remarks", and
"changes of stand", are an
equal study in specious accusation. If one is to seriously believe such critics, Gold-
water should be rejected on
his inferior "debating abilities", six or seven "self-corrections" and a failure to
"articulate his ideas correctly the first time round."
Yet such a charge ignores
the very basis of Goldwater's
candidacy, and picks up the
one area of competence
where the criteria for evaluating him do not apply.
For Barry Goldwater,
more than any previous American presidential candidate, is on the platform not
because he is a good performer at the usual role
but because his supporters
want him to play a new,
and very special, one. To
now find fault with Gold-
water's personality and man-,
nerisms is like complaining
because Grecian tragedy
finds such inadequate expression in Japanese  opera.
Are there then no obvious
reasons for opposing Barry
Certainly there are reasons — the real, rather than
the so-called obvious ones.
There would have to be: or
Goldwater, in offering a
clear "choice", would not be
living up to his own promise.
Goldwater himself, with
characteristic honesty, has
indicated precisely where
the choice lies.  The choice
he offers is between the limitation of federal powers,
and their unquestioned acceptance; between a strategy devoted to the end of
ultimate victory, rather than
coexistence based on the
premise that no such victory
is possible.
The limited exercise he
wishes in federal power has
led him (however reluctantly) to oppose it also as an
instrument of Civil Rights;
but this is a consequence,
not a first premise, in his
offered choice.
The choice Goldwater offers is not between immediate political expedients, but
the philosophies behind
those expedients. His is not
a panacea of federal policy
to cure a nation's (or a
world's) ills. His is a choice
between the panacea itself
and an approach that does
without such a convenient
Perhaps the implications
of this "real" Goldwater —
as opposed to the phantoms
that anti-Goldwater critics
shadow-box with — will percolate through the mud and
haze that has become characteristic of the U.S. presidential campaign of 1964.
And yet, perhaps not. Perhaps the "real" Goldwater,
if allowed to emerge from
behind the smokescreen,
might even round up enough
votes to win in November.
That would be a good
enough reason, one supposes,
to keep the smokebombs flying. OVERSEAS
At 48. UJC.'s
Wilson resumes
his role as
a prodigy
Seventeen years ago, Harold Wilson became the
youngest cabinet minister of
the 20th Century. Today, he
has gone one better, as the
century's youngest prime
At 48, with Labor's victory in the British election,
he has resumed the role of
political prodigy.
The role was marked out
for him in 1947 when Clement Atlee took him into
the cabinet as president of
the Board of Trade, the
youngest president since Sir
Robert Peel.
Thirteen years on the opposition benches saw the opportunities slip by until
what seemed a series of misfortunes for the Labor Party
brought Wilson rapidly forward to the leadership.
There were the deaths of
Hugh Gaitskell and Aneur-
in Bevan, and Alfred (now
Lord) Robens left politics
for the National Coal Board.
The party was stripped of
three of its major figures.
Gaitskell's death threw
the Labor Party into one of
its most feverish struggles.
George Brown, acting leader, enjoyed the backing of
the majority of the shadow

was revealed, Wilson was so
far ahead that the second

had had remarkable success.
In recent months the socialists basked in one of the
most tranquil periods in
their turbulent history.
The career of Harold Wilson, the chemist's son from
Huddersfield, has turned upwards again after the long
years of frustration.
Harold Wilson was a prodigy from schooldays. He
won a scholarship to Oxford and university prizes
fell into his lap.
Subsequently he followed
a path trodden by a number
of socialist colleagues: uni-

the best researcher he ever
had), wartime years in the
administrative civil service,
and into Parliament in 1945

older than he: Hugh Dalton,
Hugh Gaitskell, Hilary Mar-
quand. But, as they moved
up, so did he. And he rose
more quickly than some.
The political career, which
tempted him so early in life,
was flourishing. He traces
his first political thoughts
to the general election of
1923 when, ill in hospital,
he had long periods for meditation. A year later he posed
outside No. 10 Downing
Street for his father to take

koyan, now President of the
USSR, despite last week's
Kremlin shakeup.
The first encounters were
grim, with hard bargaining
on both sides. To prove his
determination, Wilson ordered his plane to stand by
ready to take off. Those
talks were broken off, but
an agreement was signed a
few months later.
His astonishing memory,
especially for figures, has
brought both admiration and
criticism. While at the Board
of Trade he was often accused of parading statistics
merely to show off.
In Moscow he demonstrated that impressive memory by delivering a speech
in Russian. Every syllable
had been carefully learned
phonetically for ihe occasion.
In    1951   Aneurin   Bevan

over health services charges.
Wilson also resigned from
the government.
Wilson doubted the wisdom of the defence program
for which the charges were
Six months later the socialists lost the election.
When the first opposition
shadow cabinet was chosen,
Labor MPs excluded Wilson,
though he had won a seat
on the  national  executive.
He was kept out by one
vote in 1953. Then Bevan
staged another walkout. Wilson was, as leading also-ran,
entitled to the seat. Would
he, as a Bevanite, take the
seat? He did—after explaining his reasons to Bevan.
Never again has he been
so fkr out of step. Fellow
MPs sometimes charge him
with being devious. The explanation may be in the difficulty in getting to know
His closest friends are outside politics.
Since becoming leader, he
has done much to refute the
charge. Speech after speech
has expounded party policy.
The speeches may leave
the public puzzled as to how
the Labor government will
operate under Wilson but
they leave little doubt on
some commitments.
Steel would be nationalized. The Rent Act would be
repealed. Freehold building
land would be bought for
the community. A Commonwealth trading plan would
be launched.
Even if many socialists
still find it difficult to feel
warm in their hearts to Wilson, They back his leadership. His Parliamentary performances    delight    them.
They know they are assured
of biting phrases to make
their opponents writhe.

Two writers
dismayed by
Sonia's view
ot Mexico
It is with dismay and contempt that we read (PF, Oct.
16) Sonia Puchalski's utterly biased account of Mexico
by one whose politically-in-
doctrined mind does not allow her to see that country's
effort to raise its standard
of living.
We must limit our comments to Mexico because we
have not had the doubtful
honor of a guided tour of
Cuba by Mr. Castro and
company. We have, however,
spent considerably more
time travelling in Mexico
than is required for a
through-trip to Cuba.
Any traveller in Mexico
with an open mind attitude
cannot help but notice the
growth of a strong and widespread middle class, a class
which encompasses the bulk
of Mexicans and has already
assumed its role as the backbone of the country.
A statement such as "Mexico is like a million square
miles of East Hastings" loses
all its strength and effect,
to a person who has only an
inkling of the real situation,
it shows up as immense and
appalling   ignorance.
The writer of that article
tries, by implication, to depict Mexicans as being enemies of each other. This
again is utter rot. From our
own experience, and from
that of many others, we can
describe Mexicans as one of
the most friendly people we
have met between here and
Europe. This we can say
from our acquaintance with
Mexicans of all ages and of
all social strata, and not on
a commercial but on a social

death, is indeed deplorable
and must necessarily leave
one with reflections on the
state of mind of the writer.
I had occasion, on my last
stay in Mexico during December and January of '63-
'64, to see many of these

only that the profit incentive among Mexican youngsters is as strong as it is
with  Canadian boys.

more skinny than the latter.
Also, let us have no more
futile, implied comparisons
between Canada and Mexico
on the subject of shoes.
When I (Osmak) was there,
I found myself walking

know them, because they

course, without making specific reference, is not to
deny the existence in Mexico as well as in Canada of
certain politically inspired
subversive groups subsidized
by the Castro regime. Maybe the number of signs
which the author of that
article saw, multiplied in
her mind by leaps and

wishful thinking.

gives HIS answer

in Cuba working with the

Q: Sonia Puchalski's article on Cuba (PF, Oct. 16)
put forth the idea that the
basic difference between
Cuba and the United States
is that Cubans, because they
are socialist, care about
people while Americans do
not. Is this really a fair
A: I agree with her point.
For example, surely one of
the most basic obligations of
a state is to educate its children. In Cuba, education is
free at all levels; in the U.S.,
university education has economic restrictions.
Q: But how can you
equate this idea that the U.S.
doesn't care with Robert
Kennedy's vigorous prosecution of civil rights in the
South? Surely, this is an
example of the U.S. government caring for people.
Kennedy virtually destroyed
any political support he had
in the South.
A: Kennedy was forced
to do it. He had to head off
the Negro revolution.
Q: Well, how about President Johnson's war on poverty . . . ?
A: That's a cheap, political gimmick. It's the same
with U.S. foreign aid. The
money is used by unpopular
right-wing military governments in the majority of
South American republics to
1) build up the army; 2)
maintain the status quo; and
3) suppress national liberation struggles. Ninety-five
per cent of this aid must be
spent to buy U.S. goods.
Here we have the situation
where the U.S. taxpayer
pays money to South American governments to subsidize indirectly U.S. private
capitalists. There is quite a
difference in the socialist
aid Cuba receives.
Q: But isn't it true that
Russian and Chinese socialist aid is just as much to
benefit Russia and China as
to benefit Cuba?
A: There's no doubt that
Russia is willing to buy
friends with aid. China also
is trying to buy friends but
hasn't the resources so she
is trying to influence people
through her foreign policy.
And her policy is more popular among underdeveloped
countries than that of the
Q: Is it not also true
that the U.S.S.R. is trying to
make Cuba a Communist
A: They are trying to
show Latin American countries what communism can
do,  yes.
Q: Then is it likely Cuba
would be getting the socialist aid it does if the rest of
Latin America were Communist?
A:    I don't know.
Q: Let me put the question another way. Is the aid
to Cuba a result of socialist
brotherly love or straight
power politics within the
Communist bloc?
A: That's a good question. I think only the Kremlin could answer it.
Q: Finally, on the question of socialist brotherly
love   and   the   situation   in
PF   Four
Cuba, how do you rationalize Juanita Castro's (Fidel's
sister) charges that Cuba has
become a police state under
her brother.
A: I discussed this with
Fidel on July 1, after Juanita defected. He told me:
"My sister is a product of
her class and as such she
has reacted in a typical way
—the way the middle class
did when its property was
expropriated." Fidel explained that under the second agrarian reform law of
1963, all properties over a
certain size were to be expropriated and the Castro
family farm fell into this
category. Juanita expected
some privilege; Fidel has
spent his life fighting privilege — he allowed no exceptions.
Her comments on Fidel
being late for another sister's funeral come as no surprise to people who know
Cubans—they are invariably late for everything.
She herself admits she
stole weapons from Cubans
and turned them over to
counter-revolutionaries who
were financed by the CIA.
Q: But why would she
do this against her own
Ai She wasn't fighting
her brother—she was fighting her class enemy. Fidel

Solemn clown
triumphs in
book ot Cert
and Mouse
Gunter Grass was born
Oct. 16, 1927 in Danzig.
Sculptor, draughtsman, playwright, and poet, he lives
at present in Berlin. His first
book, a collection of poetry
and prose, was published in
1956. But it was not until
the publication of The Tin
Drum in 1959 that Grass became known in the literary
world. After this strange
long novel, the appearance
of his short novel, Cat and
Mouse (1960) came as a surprise to many. The Tin Drum
and Cat and Mouse have
been translated into 11 languages.
Cat and Mouse opens with
Pilenz' reminiscence of how,
one day, they "were lying
on the grass in the Schlag-
ball field.". At the time Joachim Mahlke contented himself with wearing his usual
little amulet and the steel
screw driver beneath the
Adam's Apple, which a cat
had taken for a mouse.
Mahlke becomes troubled by
his agitated mouse, which he
considers so exposed and defenseless. He turns himself
into a clown, trying to distract attention from an unseen affliction. M a h 1 k e ' s
house was imaginary. Fear
takes hold of Mahlke:
". . . you said to yourself,
no doubt: No blackness can
engulf this overdeveloped
fruit; everyone sees it, suspects it, wants to grab hold
of it, for it juts out ready
to be grabbed."
Mahlke wants to disappear
—to dive again.
Then there comes a summer during which Mahlke
for the first time swims
calmly. He becomes more
and more involved in the
worship of the Virgin Mary
—not God, for Mahlke does
not believe in God. Through
skillful diving, Mahlke alone
can reach the wrecked Ry-
bitwa, a former Polish mine
sweeper. Here — a place in-'

accessible to all others —
Mahlke builds up his own
little world.
It is all done in worship
of the Madonna. Yet it is
the absurdity and destruct-
iveness of this "game of
moving man", which Pilenz
and his friends admire.
Only "the appearance of
a lieutenant commander and
a much-decorated U-boat captain in the auditorium of
our school put an end to the
concerts from within the former mine sweeper Rybitwa."
A new life begins for
Mahlke. He steals the officers' medal and wears it—
at first secretly, but soon in
public. "For the first time

Vive Sean O'Faolain! This
eloquent Irish novelist, short
story writer, biographer and
essayist has written a lyrical
autobiography that should
be required reading for anyone with the faintest feeling
for the literary life and the
correct use  of language.
For the narrative of this
man's life flows as strong
and swift as the Shannon —
and as unmistakably Irish.
O'Faolain's early upbringing
took place in the City of
Cork, where his family lived
over a pub in Half Moon
Street. He tells of his childhood and youth in a relaxed,
humorous and often downright funny way, despite its
obvious drabness. For although he grew up surrounded by characters with names
like Canty, Stuttering Loon-
ey and Bagsey Flynn, with
the Cork Opera House and
its wonders just around the
corner, he suffered all the
perils and few of the pleasures of poverty. For his parents were "shabby-genteel",
poor but afraid to admit it,
members of a social class
with too much respectability and too little money.
The writer describes how his
mother, "incited by poverty", took in boarders to eke
out the small salary her
policeman husband earned.
Who else but a born writer
would use the word "incite"
in that particular context,
rather than "motivate"?
"motivate" has a dull, sterile sound about it; it holds
none    of    the    power,    the
dreadful fear of failing feel-;
ing that a word like "incite"
carries with it. The book is
strewn with gems of this
sort. O'Faolain evokes all
the sights, sounds, and
smells of his childhood —
the cavernous, malodorous
building that was his first
school, the dreamlike quality of a city boy's days in
the country, th enjoyment
and astonishment of growing
up. He never sentimentalizes, never idealizes. And
yet, somehow, by sheer skill
with words, he makes it all
come alive, down to what it
must have been like in a
place like Rathkeale — "a
dead, lousy, snoring, flea-
bitten pig of a town".
He studied at the University College of Cork. As he
describes his arrival there,
he summarizes -the outlook
of every freshman at every
university who wants to do
everything and be everything at once. University life
did him no harm; he stayed
in the library and read it
dry. No-one "pushed, pulled,
stuffed, crammed, directed,
advised, admonished or controlled" him in any formal
way; instead he spent his
time "arguing, dreaming,
hoping, mocking, conspiring,
flirting" — and so getting
an education.
At UCC began O'Faolain's
emotional involvement with
Ireland. He changed his
name from Whalen to O'Faolain, and spent summers in
the remoter parts of Ireland.
After graduating from UCC,
he sold textbooks, travelled
all over the country, then
became involved with the
!I r i s h Republican Army,
making bombs, and publishing clandestine newspapers.
As he retells his story of
"the Troubles", O'Faolain
explains how the early idealism of the Irish nationalists
became blunted, and how

The prose has the effortless look and sound of language   put   together   by   a
master craftsman. For here
is a man unafraid to paint
with words, an author who
touches his prose with poetry, a writer with a wonderful ability to eliminate
cliches and to bend and turn
language into strange new
ways so that he says exactly what he means, and at
the same time conveys the
essence of an experience, a
sight, a sound, a smell.
This book is no mere literary autobiography. It is a
work of art, chock full of
the very stuff of life and literature. There is more good
sense about writing, more
of the real essence of the
writer's trade in these pages
than could ever be contained
within the confines of a formal university course.

Jablonski style
clear, refined
and Chopin's
better for it
Tuesday noon, those on
campus were privileged to
hear Marek Jablonski, young
Polish-born pianist, in an all-
Chopin recital. Without a
doubt it was a fine performance from beginning to end,
for Mr. Jablonski is endowed with both a superb
amount of technical facility
and a fine sense of musicianship.
His sensitive and refreshing approach to Chopin's
music differs from the vir-
tuosic, brutal performances
one usually hears. Although
the virtuosic quality of
Chopin's music cannot be denied too often the subtlety
and sensitivity of his music
is overlooked. To the contrary, Marek Jablonksi gave
his audience both virtuosity
and interpretation; his trills
and runs seemed to float
from the keys with ho effort, and his thoughtful
treatment of each phase projected his mature understanding of the music.
Of the pieces he played—
Barcarolle, Sonata in B minor, two Mazurkas, three
Preludes, and Scherzo in C
sharp minor — none lacked
the individual character demanded by the identity of
the composition. In addition,
the general style of the playing was one of clarity and
This 24-year-old pianist, I
am sure, has a career ahead
of him as one of the great
pianists of our time.
Davies plumbs
new depths in
Last Monday evening the
Vancouver Symphony Society presented an orchestra
which, at the beginning of
the concert, promised exciting things to come. How
soon the promise was to be
fulfilled was not evident until the end of the first movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. Then, with the
majestic statement of the
variations theme in the Andante con moto, the whole
orchestra came alive, in one
of the most remarkable
trans forma tions I have
New resident conductor
Meredith Davies drew from
his orchestra a new depth
and solidity of tone, creating an ensemble feeling that
has only rarely appeared before. The total effect of the
first two selections, however, was one of over-control.
The irrepressible humor of
the Elgar Cockaigne Overture was tempered to a degree that .while lending it
greater continuity and force,
obscured its inherent orchestral richness and almost burlesque sense of contrast.
The Brahms Third Symphony suffered even more
from understatement. Players and conductor alike
seemed content to let
Brahms do most of the work.
The first three movements
contain no sizeable dynamic
contrasts, and rely greatly
upon attention to detail and
subtlety of interpretation.
Until the final Allegro, unfortunately, this masterpiece
of thematic unity maintained
a plateau-like flatness that
made technical flaws, par-
iicularly in some unfortunately exposed clarinet passages, painfully obvious.
The finals hinted at what
was to come; while continuing control, Mr. Davies called forth more of the vitality
of this movement. With the
repetition of the first movement motto and the main
subject, the orchestra caught
for the first time the projected power that was later
so effective.
The allegro con brio of
Beethoven's Fifth symphony
did not recover from the
fuzzy statement of the initial
motive; it was a great disappointment. The movements which followed, however, erased any doubts previously created that the
orchestra would eventually
rally, and produced an evident and quite justified elation in the conductor.
At last we had contrast,
tremendous vitality, and a
sectional excellence second
only to the inspired ensemble playing. One joy of
interpretation and sound followed another: the biting,
recurrent lower string passages from near-perfectly integrated cellos and basses;
the exceptionally strong yet
controlled statements of the
horns; the predictable excellence in the woodwind section, particularly in solo
fragments for oboe and bassoon.
Over all Mr. /Davies maintained an electrifying consistency of pace which, from
the hyper-precision of the
scherzo, built with graded
contrasts to the final allegro
a resounding splendor of
V1FF reverts
to its 1962
routine but
in places ...
That searchlight over Kerrisdale way is about two-
thirds of the publicity for
the Vancouver International
Film Festival which has
been running in unintentional but rather effective obscurity for the last week at
the Ridge. I have been attending regularly as part oi,
my duties on an awards
committee; this m e a n s
watching movies from 2 until 11:30, pausing for meals
and occasionally sending out
for new eyeballs. Herewith
some impressions, gleaned
mostly from archival serviettes   and   laundry  checks.
This year's shorts are just
nowhere compared to last
year's. We're right back to
the old 1962 routine of Indian travelogues, UNESCO
blurbs and sleepy art films.
Exceptions are Lenica's 11
minute version of Ionesco's
Rhinoceros, which I guess is
the best thing I've seen so
far, and Joseph Killian, a
sort of Kafka cum Dada.
For some reason this
seems to be the year for
film makers to reflect on
past glories. Nobody Waved
Goodbye (NFB yet) was full
of funny echoes of 400
Blows. Holland contributed
Gestapo und Partizan epic.
Mexico's Tiburoneros was
the American 30's movie
about the guy who has to
leave home to support his
family and becomes the best
damn pilot or truckdriver or
whatever in the business,
and then finds he loses his
self-respect if he goes home
again. This is a good show
though; well thought out
and with none of the
schmaltz that is the curse of
Mexican film.)
Satiyajit Ray's Mahana-
gar was another 30's cliche:
the 'we're - both - out - of -
work - darling - but - we'll -
conquer - New York - together' bit transplanted to
Calcutta. Once again,
though, this was good. Ray
is a master director, and his
touch in this film is dead
sure. And of course the
film does reflect a current
situation in India.
The big surprise is the
Eastern block stuff which
has so far been much better
than expected. I was impressed with the Hungarian
Sodrasban (Current) which
has some first-film troubles,
mainly too much drama
school in the script, but
which often works brilliantly. Czechoslovakia sent Kirk,
(Peep) a sort of Middle European Hallelujah the Hills,
which I liked, although once
again it didn't quite make it.
With the exception of a
few horrors like Goodbye
in ihe Mirror, made by an
American lady who should
have been drowned at birth
(along with the cast), this
leaves a smattering of blockbusters to be accounted for.
So far I have seen The Girl
with Green Eyes, which is
very effective (and has a
Varsity run coming up);
Bunuel's Diary of a Chambermaid, which struck me as
pretty much formula Bun-
uel; and The Organiser, a
very entertaining film, but
slick, and a bit overrated.
There is a big hooraw
about It Started on the Vistula, but this is just because
the producer is in town —
the film itself is unbearable.
For those who just heard
about this, there are still
some goodies to come. I
would especially recommend
two items: two early Hitchcock films on Sunday at 2,
and, for anyone interested
in children films, the feature
on Saturday afternoons is
as good as they come. All
very interesting, and a pity
you didn't hear about it

All Our Customers HUDZ' JAZZ
Brock awakes
to sound of
jazz and Huds
eats words
For the last couple of
years, I've been carping
(and, I feel righteously so)
that jazz was a dying art
form, that nobody really
cared, that jazz was in
trouble,  and all  of that.
So answer me, Hudz, what
happened Wednesday afternoon in Brock when it was
Homecoming's jazz "Coffee
Time"? Approximately 250
people jammed the place,
and listened in various
stages of rapture to a quartet headed by Dave McMurdo — and a very good quartet it was. But the calibre
of entertainment wasn't
what interested me. What
did was the fact that South
Brock was never less than
packed for the entire hour.
And you call this an apathetic attitude toward jazz?
Hell, no!
Bob Smith has frequently
made the comment that the
young musicians of tomorrow are the students of our
universities, that the jazz
fans of tomorrow are the
students of our universities.
Fine, Bob, I agree. But until
now, I've harboured a large
degree of pessimism regarding the enthusiasm (i.e. lack
of same) existing among the
"jazz fans" of UBC. Come we
back to the question of what
happened Wednesday afternoon.
I don't know. I frankly
didn't think that a jazz coffee house as envisioned by
the Homecoming Committee
would work. But it did, and
there's a lesson to be learned in its success.
I think it's this: the present requirement to make
jazz a living art form is not
primarily established concerts, festivals, et al. What
is needed is the presentation
of jazz in what is now considered the Establishment.
For example, not in Brock
Lounge or the Auditorium,
but in the Brock caf, or in
the Ponderosa.
Carrying the analogy further, jazz not in the QE, but
in the Bay's Seymour Buffet, and in Eaton's Marine
Room. In other words, jazz
promoters have to get off
their collective fannies and
truly bring jazz to the public. I am not saying we
haven't tried, but I'm seriously beginning to wonder
about the effectiveness of
our approach.
This is going to require a
change of thinking on the
part of a lot of people. The
Musicians' Union, particularly, must be ready to permit
musicians to play at. these
informal sessions for free.
The musicians themselves
are going to have to get out
and .really work for the music they supposedly love. The
town's promoters are going
to have to work at setting
up these "concerts".
Whether this idea would
work on a large scale, I
don't know. But I cite the
Brock caf, Wednesday afternoon, as rather compelling
evidence that it's damn well
worth thinking about.
Howie hits back,

Howie a passing
C-Plus grade
Friday Oct. 16 your section carried some words by
two people dedicated to the
care, cause, and contentment
of real folk music in the
West Point Grey area. I
suspect this was intended to
be a review of Oct. 11 Hootenanny Revisited.
A few questions were
asked in this review, apparently asked of the world.
Being much closer to the
answers than most ... I
come to advise.
First let me caution you
not to be confused by the

they have hidden messages,

poison the performers."
The review carried one
important error, I cannot recall the abominable showman. This title was originally given to an old promoter named P. T. Barnum and
was revised some years ago
in Vancouver when bestowed upon one Fred Hill.
As much as I appreciate
being vaulted to a class
with Fred, I don't feel as yet
I have satisfactorily proved
myself. Possibly a quick
search through your thesaurus would provide an equally
original substitute.
I thank you for "all in all,
a good hoot." I asked Tom
Hawken to appear, unfortunately he wasn't available. I
don't know where your
other friends were.
True, I'm not knocked out
by Bob Dylan, but I don't
recall advising a group of
singers not to use his song.
I may have, though. A couple
of weeks ago a young blond
girl in the Bunkhouse sang
"Bourgeois Town", after the
show I asked her what a
bourgeois town was — she
didn't know. I think I suggested her delivery of the
song would improve with
knowledge of the topic. Forgive me for that.
I'm afraid I haven't ". . .

as the folk poet of the time."
I find a girl named Buffy
Ste. Marie far more real.
Buffy once wrote a -song
called "Don't think twice
Bob", a put-down on early
Dylan. Bob changed the
name and a couple of lyrics
and made a fortune.
An interesting fact—a recent survey in 10 major U.S.
colleges reveals a top 10 of
folk singers, Biaz was first
and Dylan was not to be
seen. Could it be that your
Southern fraternity brothers smell a phony . . . I'll
take Mitch Miller.
All in all I must com-,
mend your article and thank
you for assigning not one
but two competent writers

Banners, l/JSJL
Since the time the first
cave man sketched a picture
of a buffalo on a cave wall
in the hopes of gaining control over the spirit of the
beast, art has had a function. A rather unsophisticated approach to the function
of art may be postulated in
the question: "Does it mean
As Susanne Langer has
pointed out, the artist must
struggle to keep his art virtual. In other words, art is
not life, but a commentary
upon life.
The artist presents his
commentary by depicting
experience. This experience
is the content, or meaning
of art. The viewer who
shares the experience of the
artist grasps the meaning of
the work. Experience is composite: it is made up of sensory, intellectual, emotional
stimulations and the representation of this experience
is concerned with the integration of these elements.
Any art which deals with
one element only, be it sensory, emotional or intellectual, is unachieved art.
With apologies for the
preamble, we now come to
the point in question: Banners, U.S.A. now on display
at the UBC gallery. Barbara
Kulicke confers the honor
of an "art form" on the Banner. But is it art? Colorful,
yes; decorative, definitely;
art, no. This is not to suggest
that the Banner be ignored:
it definitely has its possibilities, one of these being that
original compositions are
now available where commercial subjects have had
to serve. (This points to the
grass-roots origin of the
banner, which emerged as
an advertising media during
the New York printers
The collage exhibit can
only be classed as decorative. Jack Wise, who comments that his work is a
statement on an inner condition of man and adds that
the "casual viewer" may enjoy the design, obviously
takes himself too seriously.
However, the collage exhibit does present some interesting technical approaches
to two collage problems:
namely, perspective in collage and the collage in mini-
ature. Both Roy Kiyooka
and Toni Onley have handled
the prespective problem by
a modification of the un-
subtle cubistic approach —
that of piling form on form
in order to produce dimension. Both Kiyooka and On-
PF  Twelve
ley have achieved dimension
without protrusion by isolating their compositions to
certain areas of the canvas
and relying on the interplay
of positive and negative
space for the desired effect.
The collage miniatures of
Stazl, Tidd and Skelton do
not have the delicacy of
composition or technique to
make them successful as
miniatures. -However, Gordon Smith's Venezia is a
real gem, (complimented by
superb lighting) and demonstrates the possibilities of
the collage in miniature.
The show is worth seeing
for its excellent design and
decorative qualities, but
beware of straining to find
significant aesthetic content
where there is none.

No complaints here
Editor. The Ubyssey:
Each time I pick up The
Ubyssey off the floor of the
Buchanan Building I read letters and articles of complaint.
Complaints are in order if
they are sensible and aimed
at improving the situation.
I feel sometimes that people
do too much complaining and
not enough complimenting. I
would therefore like to compliment UBC on several services which I have encountered here during the past
First, I would like to compliment the women in the
Housing Administration Office for their friendly and sincere nature.
Secondly, I would like to
compliment the staff at Wesbrook for their efficient methods in operating the student
health service.
My third compliment goes
to the cooks and staff at Totem Park Residence. Not
everything about the meals is
perfect, but generally I find
the meals  quite  agreeable.

Bookstore cents
Edior, The Ubyssey:
Gee, I'm still the poor confused Frosh that I hoped I
wasn't. I bought the pocket
book "The Dubliners" at the
UBC bookstore for 85 cents.
Downtown at Duthie's it cost
65 cents. Why? I'm amazed!
Western ignorance?
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I take exception to the
statement in a letter published in last Thursday's Ubyssey
that: ". . . western Canadian
awareness of the crisis in
Canadian Confederation is alarmingly inadequate."
If, by western Canada, Mr.
D'Aquino means just British
Columbia, then his statement
has some merit. However, I
have always understood the
term to include the other
provinces west of Winnipeg:
Saskatchewan and Alberta.
This part of "western Canada" has a large French-Canadian population as well as
many other ethnic groups. It
has at least four French language radio stations. One
cannot fail to be aware of
'the problems of Canadian
unity in such an atmosphere.

Canadian high school in gas-;
katchewan, I and my classmates were aware of the
French question long before
it came to a boil in Quebec.

attitude I have found almost
universal since coming to
UBC. The old adage: "People
who live in glass houses
shouldn't throw stones is
surely applicable here.
I submit that British Columbia has gone too far; too
far from the rest of western
Canada: perhaps even too far
from Canada itself.

Arab Refugee camps
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Your report on the observations of Neil Griggs, Arts
II, who spent some time in
Arab Refugee Camps of the
Near East, did not elaborate
on the reason why the camps
are still in existence.
These camps have been
left by the Arabs as they are
for the sole purpose of international political propaganda.
In Gaza, and especially the
Jericho camp in Jordon, the
refugees have had 1 i 11 le
chance to integrate with the
rest of the country and thus
their fight for survival has
become a burden on the
United Nations.
I submit that, at this late
date, the United Nations
should not have any responsibility towards the Arabs who
have been held in camps for
the past sixteen years. This
is an internal problem of
those countries directly in-
volved and repatriation
should be dealt with solely by
those countries.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
Re: the act of civil disobedience on "Screech Day".
Many things have been said
against the egg throwing students.
In order to attack these
students the accuser must establish that the action in
which the sorority girls were
engaged was, in fact, becoming students of this university.
If this is not established the
act of egg throwing was justified.
It was an attempt to terminate an unbecoming activity.
Certain members of the student body sanction the egg
throwing since it reflected the
attempt by the majority to rid
themselves of an "uninvited,
unwanted, unauthorized disturbance.
The repeated calls of "Go
Back to Brock", the attempt
to upset tables testifies to the
feeling of the majority.

Juvenile's work
Editor, The Ubyssey:
One night recently the Engineering building was vandalized.
Aside from EUS property
being stolen and damaged,
honey was "painted" on doors
and hand railings. As a result, the janitor was forced
to work late in order to clean
up the mess.
We hope the children responsible   are   satisfied.

If the glass is broken, only
the gongs in the building concerned ring, he said.
"But as far as I know," he
added, "These systems have not

Rowland said that normal

"As soon as the contractors

Ubyssey Art Director
In my foolish youth, I looked
upon fog as a marvellous and
mysterious event which came
in Novemlber and was turned
off and on until February.
Now, thanks to my university education, I know fog to
be water condensed on dust
particles called nuclei and each
November I rushed forward
with microscope and calipers
madly applying the scientific
method to find the mean size
of these nuclei.
This year, when the fog
came, I didn't run forward with
microscope and calipers but
walked confidently through
the fog with the knowledge
that fog nuclei were and still
are, I believe, very small.
• •    •
That same day, I happened
to be crossing the playing
fields behind Brock when I
stumbled into the middle of a
football practice.
Sizing up the situation quickly, even though I had never
won my big block, small block
or common block, I decided to
get off the field.
But before getting off the
field a football came my way.
Now to the untrained mind
it might seem best to run, but
as an annual A-card buyer, I
knew I should catch the ball.
This I did.
I also realized that one
should run after catching the
ball. So I ran.
I ran off into the fog.
As I ran off, I could hear the
cheers of the crowd. I ran
some more.
Finally I came to two posts
and decided this was a good
place to have a smoke. So I
I finished my smoke and decided I would run some more.
So I ran.
Again the crowd cheered.
Again I came to two posts
and stopped, but I didn't have
a smoke.
• •    •
I ran in the other direction,
and I might be running to this
day if on my third run the fog
had not lifted.
As the fog lifted some football players spotted me and decided to run along. They did
that and more. They knocked
me down.
I dropped the ball, got up,
brushed off the fog nuclei,
and went on my way.
Now, whenever I cross the
playing fields behind Brock in
the fog, I pretend I'm a fog

Students you are getting robbed — of the privileges to
which you are entitled!
Let me tell you why.
On the eighteenth of this month the Thunderbird football club played the University of San Francisco in the
American city. They left Vancouver on a chartered flight
but they didn't go alone.
On the plane, besides the crew, were six cheerleaders
and 34 other passengers. One cheerleader paid, out of her
own money, her return flight of $60.
Furthermore, the football players shelled out $150 to
pay half of the fares of the other five cheerleaders. This
money came from the money which the football team
gets from selling "Date Cards." It shouldn't have to be
spent on this sort of thing.
• •     •
How about expenses in San Francisco? Naturally, the
players and staff get all their expenses paid. That is their
Well then, what about the Cheerleaders?
You guessed it, they had to pay their own expenses; just
imagine, cheerleaders from a university with an enrolment
of over 15,000 having to pay their own expenses while
cheering for their team.
Kind of disgusting, isn't it.
This means that only $150 out of an approximate
amount of $360 was paid by the Athletic Department
for a university function. They should have paid the total,
why not?
Why not the press?
What about the press? Why didn't a member of our
great sports staff accompany the 'Birds on their first ever
trip to sunny California. Can 38 members of our campus
tell well over 15,000 students what the trip and the game
were really like. Certainly not, but a member of the press
could and that is his job.
But he would be stupid to do it under the same conditions that the cheerleaders had. Every student pays
tuitions and $29 of his fees are for the Alma Mater
Society. Part of this money goes for the student's paper.
Consequently, the student is not getting his full benefit
of the campus news if all events are not covered fully.
But like I said before, no reporter is going to be that
foolish to pay his own expenses on a university function.
• •     •
I ga.ther it is the policy of this university to send cheerleaders or reporters of wisdom on trips only if the expenses
are under $10. Well, it is up to the students to fight for
their privileges and the sooner the better.
I was told by reliable sources that the chartered flight
had 10 empty seats.
A charter of this sort costs approximately $4,000 but
you pay for the plane whether it is full or not. Consequently, a member of the press could have boarded the plane
and there would have been no extra cost.
Except for expenses, which the reporters wouldn't mind
paying anyway.
• •     •
The players play, the cheerleaders cheer and the press
writes. They are all part of the campus and should equally
enjoy privileges granted to them.
It is up to the students to make sure they do.
Otherwise, I am sorry to say, you will get robbed, and
you better believe it.

Grads no laugh
for hoopla Birds
The annual Homecoming Basketball Game is an exhibition game played for fun, but Thunderbird hoop coach
Peter Mullins probably won't be laughing.
Tonight at 9:15 in the War
Memorial Gym, Mullins sends
his green team against what
should be one of the strongest
Old-Timers' squads ever.
Only three of the ten Birds
dressing tonight are returnees
from last year's championship
team. They are center Steve
Spencer, forward Bob Bar-
razuol and rapidly-improving
forward Morris Douglas—ail
second-stringers last year.
Joining these three on the
starting unit tonight will be
University of Windsor transfer
Gene Rizak, a guard, and
rookie Alec Brayden, last year
a stalwart with the Freshmen
Forward Dave Osbourne, expected to be the backbone of
this year's Birds, is injured,
and will not see action tonight.
Lack of depth will be a problem for Mullins tonight and,
probably, all year. The remainder of the Birds squad is
comprised of a group of willing, eager but inexperienced
rookies. They are guards Rick
Williamson, Stu Gardiner and
Ken Atkinson and frontcourt-
men Mac Tyler and Doug
Old-Timers expected out tonight are Dave Way and Bill
MacDonald, two of Canada's
finest basketballers, Mike Potkonjak, Gordie Betcher, Dune
McCallum, Ed Wild, and possibly Ken Winslade.
Not optimistic about tonight's outcome, Mullins says,
"If they leave their best players out there, they'll be very
rough on us."
