Rebel group calls

Realist editor
UBC Creditistes lashed out Monday at U.S. editor Paul
Krassner, who is speaking here Wednesday on the topic Will
Success Spoil Pope Paul?
Walter Sturdey, Arts II,
spokesman for the club said
Krassner, editor of the Realist
magazine, "is a suspected anarchist, polluting young minds
with thinly disguised art."
Krassner will speak in the
auditorium at noon.
"He's the editor of an unbelievably filthy rag, filled
with pious pornography," he
"/The danger is that Krassner
presents his garbage in such a
clever way so as to pass it off
as constructive criticism", said
"We advocate students going to see him to protest; to
go and listen and judge for

He said he was concerned
that the march was not supported by council.

he said.
Enomoto said: "To my knowledge all other mahches are

these universities. Our council's attitude seems to be that

In an open letter submitted
to AMS President Byron Henderson, Monday the committee
outlined its objectives.
The letter said the question
at stake was not one of analysis,
but of strategy.
"Student council's opposition
to the idea of a march does not
dispute the analysis forwarded
by EAP that the principle of
'universal accessibility' must
become working policy in

that a well disciplined, orderly

'Question is
what kind
of action'
The following is a statement
by AMS president Byron Hender on current situation regarding student mass action.
Dear fellow students:
I believe that the time to
clarify the position of the Alma
Mater Society with respect to
the fee issue is long overdue. It
is unfortunate that many individuals with completely different viewpoints have undertaken to present the official
AMS policy to the student body
and to the communiy at large.
I might point out that the
Education Action Program
committee was struck early in
September to recommend policy to council.
Tentative approval was given
to the long term program as
formulated by the co-chairmen.
Unfortunately, it soon became evident that the planning
of one particular aspect of the
EAP, namely National Student
Day, was taking a direction
different to the one council
had recommended.
At this point, student council
stepped in and re-directed the
As a consequence, the student body has been presented
with a very confused picture.
Several ad hoc committees
made up of so-called 'political
activists' have frantically attempted to devise schemes of
getting around the legislation
laid down by the AMS.
That legislation is quite clear.
The question is not whether
or not to act, but rather'what
method of action is considered
most appropriate at the present
The means of pressure that
the Alma Mater Society has at
its disposal are varied and
powerful, however, it must
select its methods very carefully.
The Back Mac March of 1963
proved a great success, but only
because its aims were clearly
spelled out, and because the
campaign took one direction
and one direction oniy.
That March was a success,
but one can hardly expect a
march held every two years to
have a significant effect on the
general public.
This, however, was not the
only    compelling    reason    for
council's    decision    against
marching. The majority of stu-

The only candidate for
the presidency of Canada
will speak in the auditorium at noon today.
Peter Baxter, who received a BA in economics
and political science from
UBC in 1963, is running
for presidency in the Vancouver Island seat of
Alberni - Comox in the
Nov. 8 election.
He said at UBC Monday: "I call myself an

snow job."

Give students time off
for vote—Pearson
OTTAWA (CUP) — Prime Minister Pearson has written
the heads of Canadian universities and colleges asking them
to take "any action practicable" to give students time off
from classes to vote in the Nov. 8 federal election.
In his letter, the prime minister suggested students be
allowed to be absent from classes either on election day,
Nov. 8 or on one of the advance polling days Nov. 1 or Oct.
The problem arose when thousands of residential students were barred from voting in their university constituencies because of a clause in the Canada Elections Act
requiring them to be in residence the day the election writs
were issued.
(Continued from Page 1)
dents' concillors felt that their
faculties were not in support
of the march at this time.
The program for National
Student Day as outlined by the
AMS is straightforward.
A large rally will be held on
campus at noon on Wednesday,
Oct. 27.
Negotiations are on their
way to bring a speaker who
will present the case for education, and who will inform
students as to what the significant facts are. The rally will
also include comments on education from representatives of
each political party.
Following the rally, it is
planned that the Students will
disperse in an organized fashion throughout the city, to distribute prepared literature explaining the students' position.
At the same time, a delegation made up of representatives
from all sectors of education
(faculty, and students from institutions of higher learning,
and the high schools) will meet
with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada at the Bayshore Inn.
The purposes of the National
Student Day are quite clear.
Acceptance of a concept of universal accessibility, (or equality
of opportunity), to all post high
school education is paramount.
Further aims are the establishment of a ceiling On tuition fees, and railing of widespread public support in favour
of reduced tuition.
The Bladen commission's
comments with respect to increased federal and provincial
funds, if used for the purpose
we seek, will enable the institutes of post secondary educa-

tion to freeze and quite possibly

The Alma Mater Society program for National Student Day
(and the Education Action Program as a whole) must serve to
inform hoth yourself and the
public at large of our belief in
equality of opportunity and
our concern with the trend towards increasing fees.
I anticipate your support
both for National Student Day,
and in the many projecs that
lie ahead.

United Nations rapped
by Thant's special advisor
A high-ranking United Nation's executive speaking at
International House Monday
severely criticized several
parts of the U.N.
C. V. Narasimhan, special
advisor to U.N. secretary general U Thant, directed most
of his criticism at the U.N.'s
Economic and Social Council.
He said the council "has not
covered itself in glory."
Narasimhan said: "The developing countries simply do
not trust the council. In the
eyes of the developing countries, it seems to follow the
wishes of the influential nations."
Narasimhan also said he was
not completely satisfied with
the work of the International
Court of Justice.
He said he is particularly
dissatisfied with the work
concerning the treatment of
prisoners in certain nations
that he declined to list.
Narasimhan said that although the Security Council
was regarded by the founding
fathers of the U.N. as the most
because of "the pressure of
public opinion, represented in
the debate in the General
"The General Assembly is
the only principal organ
where the principle of equality of nations applies. Every
nation has one vote," he said.
Narasimhan said the General   Assembly   is   important
because  of  "the  pressure of
public opinion, represented in
the debate in the General Assembly."
He gave the acceleration of
the progress toward colonization as one example of the
influence of public opinion in
the General Assembly.
Narasimhan said the position of the secretary general
is "the most difficult on earth"
because  the  position  has  no
'legal authority: ~      ~
"As long as the secretary
general commands the confidence of the major and
minor powers, he can be effective, otherwise he cannot,"
he said.
Narasimhan said of U.N.'s
20th anniversary: "It is a delectable age for girls, but a
dangerous one for the U.N."
Probe to follow
editors dismissal
RBGINA (UNS) — The Canadian University Press will
investigate the dismissal of the editor of the University of
Saskatchewan student newspaper.
John Conway, editor of the
Carillon, was dismissed by
student council Friday after
failing to submit his resignation as requested by  council.
Council president Graham
Kelly said Monday there will
be two CUP investigators. They
are the editor of The Manitoban, University of Manitoba's
student newspaper, and representative of The Gauntlet,
newspaper at the Calgary campus of the University of Alberta.
Among the reasons given for
Conway's dismissal were the
lack of coverage of campus
events and council matters, and
the financial management of
the weekly paper which used
$2,200 of its $7,650 yearly budget during the first month.
The council also disagreed
with the paper's policy banning
advertising connected with tobacco, alcohol, the military, or
that intended to mislead, misinform or manipulate readers.

TUESDAY, OCT. 1% 1965
"The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses
of instruction." -Wm. Blake.
We can only react with a feeling of sick dismay to
the statementof UBC. president, John, Macdonald with
regard to next year's fee hike.
If the Bladen report is implemented by next year,
Macdonald said last week, there is no particular reason
why UBC's, fees have to go up; another $50.
To us, this, comment shows dear that all the briefs,
„ manifestos and words* words, words, expended in the
fee fight to date add up to one result.
Zero. Nobody in the adnunistration is listening.
But eight days5 before National Student Day, it is
perhaps just as well the administration is demonstrating
that to them student opinion is of no account.
Obviously, the time has come for action.
And it seems to us there must come a great polarization on this campus. Each student must decide whether
he wants to see fees go up, or down.
Because there is ho reason for fees to stay where
they are.
Statistically, they contribute to an overall student
cost-of-living already above the average student's summer earnings.
 So jo up ot down they must A^ if you pre in Ja;yojc.^
of them climbing, then by all means do nothing.
But if you believe they should go down, there is no
alternative but to take part in the mass action planned.
Oh, it would be nice if our president backed immediate implementation of the no-fees idea he advocated in
his welcoming address, official release (page four, para. 5.
Then in a second massive Back Mac, students could
concentrate on pressuring governments for a fee reduction—fighting on the same side'as their administration.
But such isn't the case. Administration, governments, all must learn through our actions to appreciate
the student point of view.
And a point of view not only of today's students,
but that of all the generations of students who will
come in through the doors we open.
"Yeah, I find an all-day cup saves a lot of walking back and forth.'
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
May we submit the following facts respecting the totally
false rumours reported by the
anonymous writer of "This

Exchange which appeared in
The Ubyssey of Oct. 15.
The   fact  is   that  this   ex-

Yesterday I came across a
bit of propaganda put out by
your Ifriendly SUB manager,
Roger MacAfee.
This takes the form of a
profusely illustrated booklet
on the student union building,
and is being put out in a
I limited edition (limited
i^to people
{with 50c).
} This booklet reminded
'me of a min-
i or event in
!my life that cameron
rcame in 1964, the year I spent
laway from the dear old Uby-
I ssey in order to edit The
That's the now-defunct arts
newspaper, for you frosh.
The student union building
question came up at the beginning of that year, and I didn't
like it.
Neither, it seems, did some
other people. As a result of
this, I spent nine hours one
day in the engineering undergrad society office, together
with a youthful scribe from
Tfre Ubyssey named Tom Way-
man, -Gopher Waldron, now
a grad student, in metallurgy,
and some other types who
called themselves the 'Sink
the SUB committee.'
We finally produced a one
page feature presenting our
side of the SUB question, and
this appeared in The Ubyssey,
but alas, twas all for nought,
and the referendum passed.
This bit of nostalgia was
brought to mind even more
forcibly when I overheard the
following conversation in
"I hear that Pearson is going to turn a sod."
(Interesting, I thought to
myself, but how will he get
Tommy Douglas to go along
with it?)
"What sod?"
"The sod to start the new
student union building."
"What student building?"
"The student union building."
"I didn't know we had a
union. When do we go on
"Not that kind of a union,
you idiot. This union doesn't
go on strike."
"What does it do, then?"
"If it doesn't do anything,
why does it need a building?"
"To give ex-student presidents something to do, and to
provide a chance for politicians running for office to appear on the campus and make
a speech."
"Oh. Well, who's paying for
"You are."
"Oh. How?"
"The AMS takes $15 from
your AMS fees every year."
"Oh. How come? No one
asked me about it."
"They decided it about
three years ago."
"Well, it doesn't seem right
that the guys that were here
then should make me pay for
it. Most of them aren't even
here now."
"Well, if you think you can
change it, good luck."
"Yeah. Well, why does
Pearson get to start it? Did
he put up some money?"
"Not a cent."
"Then why doesn't one of
the students turn the sod?
We're paying for it."
"Because Roger MacAfee,
the chairman of the whole
mess, is a Liberal, that's why."
change was completely organized and financed by individual law students, themselves. It was on no way arranged or financed by the Law

The second fact is that of

It's an intouch world with the university, and a brick or tarpaper womb

should be an integral part of this questionable student experence.

the world ends at Wesbrook Crescent.
People living off-campus cannot get
near the feeling this creates — walking
toward the dorm on a drizzly night, seeing
the lights and feeling other people, and
you're just out of a lecture or just returned
from the library.
The outside communication lines are
only The Ubyssey, radsoc and the few who
take a downtown newspaper.
There's no real comprehension of traffic
on Cambie Street, an election in Vancouver-Centre, or a fire razing Hastings.
Those sterile halls in Lower Mall or
Totem have ridiculous pastel-colored doors,
each with a body behind it — you can
walk through and feel the presence.
You cannot do this anywhere else in
town, for sure.
You eat this horrible food in a huge
hall, catching it from a line of surly servers,
searching among the thousands of gobbling
faces for a table of friends, or sitting beside
an empty chair and pretending not to listen
to those talking around you.
You can be lonely in crowds in residence, and then shocked out of your solitude by the guy you thought was a meatball across the hall when be comes to the
doorway and starts reading Beckett aloud.
You have a problem, and wouldn't
consider going to the happy don, or if you
did you'd never admit it. But you know
you can, even if he's a meatball too, even if
you  don't.
And there's those rotten stairs, in Totem,
and Lower Mall, with the grey stucco walls
and wire in the glass at each floor. Like an
institution of some kind, which it is.
If you hate institutions, a dorm will

If you're indifferent,  you  won't  mind.

In Fort, there's a community spirit unmatched outside a jungle during a guerilla
war, where everybody has to contend with
the wet grass on the broken paths, no heat,

Things like this make a bond between

back at from 30 years, chuckles rumbling
in their fat bellies.
Dorm living is another world, a weird
world unappreciated by most and one

about the money..
This September a total of 2806 students moved
into university residences.
This is 17 per cent of UBC's students.
And to the undergraduate student who comes on
campus at 8:30 every morning and leaves at 5:30 in the
evening, the university can be little more than a high
To the resident, it is a way of life.
Life in residence can be an integral part of the
academic curriculum; the availablity of the library, discussion partners, and faculty extends the formal learning time into the students' leisure hours.
The result is the diffusion of learning into all the
facets of student life.
It is obvious that a completely residential student
body at UBC is financially impossible: the new Totem
Park residences, completed in 1964, house 768 students
and cost  $5,682,000.
The money for Totem Park was borrowed and with
interest will cost residents over 16 million in the next
50 years.
It would be impractical for the administration to
assume the entire responsibility for this debt, but if it
were to accept on-campus residence as a necessary part of
a university education, almost equal in importance to
th acadmeic curriculum, some of the load may be taken
off the residents.
Crabbing   is  universal
sport, but necessary evil

What's life like in a UBC residence?
According to most campus-housed, the advantages are  certainly uncertain.
Complaints outnumber plaudits eight-to-

of 12 students) is the food.
"At least one meal a day is impossible to
eat. The rest are either insipid or cold," said
an unidentified Acadia student.
"Rice tastes like glue, potatoes like Gravy
Train," said Roy Haugen, Lower Mall. "Eggs
are overcooked on the underside and undercooked on the overside."
"I also dislike the poor service and petty
attitude of the staff," said Haugen. "It's
pretty sad when you have to pay 2c for an
extra pat of butter and 5c for an extra glass
of milk."
Bill Graf has lived in Lower Mall for two
years, which makes him some sort of expert
by himself.
But Focus sent him out to interview students, dons, resident fellows, janitors, bureaucrats and administration officials in Lower
Mall, Fort Acadia and Totem Park.
Here's the behind-the-scenes dirt.
One of the difficulties is that food services
is in no way responsible to housing, but is a
separate division under the dean of inter-
faculty affairs.
Last year only $41 per student was allocated to Food Services, compared with an
average room and board charge of $85
Many students are unhappy about shortages
in space and facilities.
In Lower Mall, Fort and Acadia there are
no floor or hut lounges in men's residences.
Students thus tend to congregate in hallways or rooms.
"If I leave my door open even for a minute,
every dip on the floor wanders into my room,"
said Elvin Hedden, as I walked through his
open door.
1        Some amenities are lacking.
In Lower Mall (where housing rates are
identical to Totem), Fort and Acadia, there
are   no   bed   lamps,   individual   mail-boxes,
I  elevators, bedspreads or paper towels in washrooms.
Students find staying in their rooms for
any length of time does indeed create feelings
of restlessness.
Typing, study and recreation areas are
few and overcrowded.
Many escape to the library. Others go to
empty classrooms or watch TV.
Several times a year riots of varying
enormity erupt in residence areas. Or expeditions from one area stage mass raids on other
For all this, residence life is highly impersonal. The same hurry, intolerance, and
endless line-ups which characterize the campus as a whole abound in dorms.
"I've been in Acadia for two years," said
one girl, "and other than the girls in my own
hut, I know about five or ten people here."
To most students, housing administration
is a vague and remote "they". Communications are infrequent.
"The only time we've heard from housing
was when a fellow in a raincoat tacked up
a "residence standards" sign, which I can't
understand anyhow," said a Totem frosh.
Students are often hesitant about registering a complaint or making a suggestion, as
they are often unaware of procedure.
Women's activities are restricted by a
leviathan of rules and regulations, the reasons
for which are often incomprehensible.
It   should   be   mentioned   that   housing's
activities are restricted by a limited budget.
Students themselves are partly responsible
for continuing abuses.
"Instead of vaguely griping about everything, students should formulate their complaints and bring them to me. I could take
them before housing and probably get some of
them corrected," said Sherwood Lett don Fred
McCourt, a chemistry grad student.
If  residences  are  rife  with   abuse,  why
then do students continue to  stay in them?
Convenience is an important factor.
To many frosh, unfamiliar with the city
and campus, residences are indispensible.
"There's only one kind of cooking more
repulsive than residence food — my own,"
said  Gerry Young,  Lower Mall.
"The one and only reason I stay in residence is convenience," said Ted Hicks, arts
III. "Meals are prepared, facilities are right
at hand, and classes are ten minutes away."
Some like the proximity of other students.
"In residence you get to meet and know
all different sorts of people," said a Totem
"You're always abreast of new developments and have access to all kinds of currents
in university life," she added.
Residence life is sometimes interesting,
often frustrating and always convenient.
Many complaints are either minor or invalid.
Housing is aware of most greater abuses
and  plans  to  correct them.
The food problem .however, is difficult to
correct,  or even justify.
For many, residence life is an important
part of the university experience, for others
a necessary evil.
Housing head wears  two hats
Knute Buttedahl is a man
who wears two hats.
He is acting director of
housing and remain a head
of UBC's extension department, where he has been
for the past eight days.
In what he terms the new
emphasis, Buttedahl has replaced the former exhaustive list of rules and regulations with a set of standards,
stressing individual student
The new program concentrates on major problems and
avoids initiative-stifling over-
Within its broad framework, students are expected
to act with reasonable consideration in a mature way.
"Residence life is or can
be as essential a part of the
university experience as say,
lectures or the library," Buttedahl says. 'The warden-
concept has no place in such
a system."
Buttedahl would like to
expand recreation areas and
graduate student accommodation.
'1Grad student accommodations  are far more optium.
They have different re-
requirements — married student facilities, for example,
greater study areas and access to research and other

Universities have been building and
operating residences for centuries.
Many of them, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Yale accept the
university residence as a necessary
part of the academic community.
UBC, however, made out for 20 years
—from 1926 to 1946—on the Point
Grey campus without any residence
At the end of the war, the army
camp on the present site of Fort Camp
was turned over to the university and
refitted as a student residence.
This, with Acadia Camp, formed the
basis for the first on-campus housing.
Both Acadia and Fort Camps were
at that time designated "temporary".
They still are, although there are no
plans yet to replace them with permanent residences.
The first solid brick and concrete
residences to be built were erected in
1952 at Fort Camp but they housed
only women.
Men had to wait until the opening
of the eight houses, four men's and
four women's, at Lower Mall in 1959.
The final stage of the present housing program was concluded in fall 1963
when the new Totem Park buildings
At the moment, there are no more
concrete plans for more residence
Only 17 per cent of UBC students
live in residence and priority is given
to out of town and foreign students.
To meet the demand the idea of a
cooperative student residence operated
for and by the students has evolved.
The University of Toronto has such
an operation.
Students who live there share the
duties of running it and administer it
through an elected board of directors.
This naturally leads to problems.
. Some duties are left undone and the
lack of rules administered by the university can cause friction between students who respect the communal rules
and those who do not.
Howard Adelman, a member of the
U of T faculty, published a report on
university residences which he points
out some of the faults in co-op housing.
"The students do not always do the
work they assign to each other. A
hall is sometimes found undusted, a
toilet bowl is unclean, and the student
peeling potatoes does not clean out the
strainer when he finishes.
"One year a whole house became a
"bad" house with a consequent high
failure rate."
Adelmann contrasts those faults with
the petty regulations imposed in administration run residences.
"In our present residences, we find
that students have no social responsibility; they must be watched."
"Students cannot be treated like children arr* t'-pn be expected to behave
as socially responsible adults," he says.
UBC approached a new standard this
fall when acting director of housing,
Knute Buttedahl, listed a number of
general principles for residence students.
Although some regulations, including the one prohibiting liquor in dormitories, are still spelled out, the new
policy is broad enough to place responsibility for behavior on the residents
The residence standards, as set out
by Buttedahl are: the student should
have a commitment towards his own
intellectual development; he should accent the responsibility for the care of
the residence; and he should respect
the feelings of others.

and friend
Something is happening to married students accomodation on campus.
We're getting some.
According to Dean of Graduate Studies
Ian McTaggart-Cowan, a faculty committee
headed by Acting Director of Housing Knute
Buttedahl has been formed, to draw up a
comprehensive plan for a married students'
housing project.
The housing project would probably be
built in the Acadia Camp area.
And building would begin as soon as
possible, following approval of the plan by
administration and the Board, of. Governors.
"A plan must be formulated which is
practical as well as adaptable," said Dean
He said that although the committee is
well aware of the immediate need for married students' quarters. It would be nearsighted not to take time to find out what
type and quality of housing is needed and
the feasibility of building it.
So far, one major housing survey has
been completed this year by the Alma Mater
Society's Married Students' Housing Committee.
The committee, headed by Jim Slater,
Grad Studies, includes student wives who
approached the AMS last year when 100 married students' quarters were torn down in the
Wesbrook area to make way for UBC's new
dental college.
The purpose of the student survey was
to find out exactly what type and quality of
housing married students want and to provide information to formulate university policy on future housing projects.
Major results were as follows:
• There are 2,300 married students at
UBC but only 210 married students'
• Two-thirds of UBC's married students
said they would like to live on campus.
• Slightly more than half the married
students have children.
• Average monthly rents they would
consider paying are $85 for a one-
bedroom unit, $95 for two bedroom
unit, and $105 for a three bedroom
Slater said that survey results underline
the increasing need for adequate married
students' quarters at UBC.
'iSince UBC is moving more and more
toward becoming a graduate school, housing
must be provided for the increasing number
of married students," he said.
"UBC wants grads," said Slater, "Yet
graduate students at present prefer to go to
the United States where most universities
have housing."
Slater said the survey also showed that
the family is a unit which takes part in the
university community just as much as the
student husband or wife.
He said a Bachelor's thesis on married
students' housing done recently by architecture student Jim Miner turned up similar
results to those in the survey.
In his thesis, Miner suggests that the
present accomodation problem stems from the
sideration of the family means that, among
failure of society to recognize that learning is
a continuing process throughout life.
And Miner points out that the entire
family must be considered in a housing project.
According to the head of UBC's School
of Architecture Professor Henry Elder, consideration of the family means that among
other things, the need for shopping, transportation and public school facilities must be
taken into account.
Elder suggested that when a suitable
housing project is designed, it will be most
practical to consider it as an experiment with
several stages so that, for example, after the
first 100 units were completed, improvements-
and adaptations could be made.
Elder said that the excellent survey on
married students' housing carried out by the
AMS committee is the first step in the right

Residence life, like every
other UBC institution, has its
own bureaucracy.
The housing administration
office and its ancillary departments are concerned
with physical and financial
aspects while student government concentrates on
social and cultural programs.
To the average resident
student, however, dons and
resident fellows are the main
— if not the only contact —
with housing administration.
They are generally postgraduate or senior students,
selected by character, high
academic standing and ability to get along with others.
Through dons and resident
fellows, administration policies are interpreted and explained to students, student
needs or complaints directed
to housing, and general discipline and supervision maintained.
"One of the main functions
of a don is simply being
there," said Sherwood Lett
House don Fred McCourt.
'He is a general stablizing
The other half of the bureaucracy is student government, which can be at once
a complement and a foil to
housing administration.
Student councils, of which
every area has at least one,
are elected representative
Councils have control over
money received from canteen revenue, social and athletic events, special levies
and   coin-oprated   machines.
In an interview Lower Mall
council president John
Woods described his area's
"Our income for a typical
year would be between three
and four thousand dollars,"
he said.
Lower Mall sponsors a
social, cultural and athletic
program — dances, intramural sports, lectures, discussions, movies, a Christmas
and spring dinner and other
special events, he said.
"We distributed $50 to
each house for their own use
and set aside $300 for next
year's council. The remainder we try to use for improvements and permanent facilities, such as a new public
address system and recreation or athletic equipment."
Academic link most unlike moms sweet nest
Acting Director of Housing
A university residence is not home.
It cannot and should not be compared with
the idyllic nest mother kept. Residence living is
something unique.
No matter what is done with paint or upholstery, or with regulations or activities, residences
will always be different. But they are intended to
be different because they are an integral part of
the student's academic experience.
To operate residences merely as commercial or
administrative units would be a relatively simple
task. But it is requisite that university housing
serve as another link in the academic experience
for students which presents the great challenge.
¥    ¥    ¥
I do not presume to make earth-shaking proposals after only a fleeting association with the
problems of- student housing on this campus. Because the university is dynamic, its housing policy
must likewise be dynamic and evolving. It will fall
to my successor to firm up and enunciate policy.
The crux of our biggest problem is scarcity.
So long as less than one-fifth of the student population can be housed on campus, we have no alternative but to be discriminatory in our decisions
about who shall live in residence, residence living
is reserved for those who can academically benefit  from it.
This principle serves as our launching pad,
but many other questions need answers before we
launch a policy on space allocation.
We ask: does the student whose home is within commuting distance have equal rights to campus housing as the student who lives hundreds of
miles away; what is a practical commuting distance; what obligation do we have to students
from other provinces or from overseas; should
freshmen have priority over seniors, or graduates
over undergraduates; should there be a maximum
2 or 3 year term in residence so as to provide
turnover and give others a chance?
I marvel at the multiplicity of suggestions that
emanate from students in residence. And I welcome these suggestions. But only a few dozen of
these ideas can be implemented each year and that
many others must be shelved until those elusive
dollars are ..found.
As the alternative to raising housing fees, I
think it important to aim steadily toward a standard of comfort and service. Money must not be dissipated among the many demands of the moment.
This is not the way to win a popularity contest but it does ensure a full and lasting value for
every dollar contributed by students. Housing administration must make every dollar work to its
An allocation policy is a complex thing. Once
it has been evolved with skill and care, it must
be applied without fear or favor.
•    •   •
The operation of the physical plant offers a
fact that the university has four distinct residential
areas for single students. The differences between
each area probably as numerous as their similarities.
As a goal, housing administration must establish a standard of comfort and service and then
raise every area up to it. Such a plan has been
initiated already but it may take . years to complete. This plan can proceed only as fast as pre
cious dollars can be pried loose from other important demands within the housing budget.
What about the responsibilities of students?
They undertake no small responsibility granted the
privilege of residence living. Although some young
men and some young women will take longer to
develop the maturity and the wisdom required for
responsible action, the university' must encourage
students to so develop.
Strong leadership is required of student representative government in residences. The sanely isgproval of one's peer is still a most
powerful influence on behavior. The university
■"nnot accept a parent's responsibilities. However,
in communal living there must be a plimsol line;
a set of standards are needed
Some students suggest even fewer restraints
upon their behavior. But there are also many who
plead for more regulations to deal with the thoughtless and the selfish. While the university can give
freedom it cannot give licence.
An administrator of housing must find a balance between two extremes. At the same time, it
is important the majority not be penalized because
of the irresponsibility of the few.
•    •    •
Residence living must be a unique experience.
Residences are not intended to provide only
room and board. They are not merely a home
away from home. They are a part of the total academic experience. University housing must be administered with these principles uppermost. And
students likewise must undertake the responsibilities implied by these principles.
Any building plans for the future or any modifications in philosophy will require thinking beyond the bare requirements of room and board.

UBC's fire department has
to be—and is—ready to combat fire hazards of a normal
suburban area and those peculiar to the university.
That's the word from three
men who should know: fire
chief R. W. Roland, university
fire .prevention committee
chairman T. S. Hughes, and endowment lands manager M. E.
"The possibilities for fire
here are quite varied," Roland
''There is the danger of
chemical fires, and blazes involving radioactive material
on campus.
"But people are still the
main cause of fires, and there
are plenty of* people in this
area," he added.
Two combination pumpers
and ladder trucks, both 1942
models, and a 1964 fire chief's
car, are the department's
transportation. All are "equipped with two-way radios.
The department was formed
in 1930 from two detachments. One had been responsible for the campus, the other
for the.residential area of the
endowment area.
The provincial government
hires the firemen, and allots
about $150,000 for the department's operation.
The endowment lands department has a contract with
the City of Vancouver to ensure support in case a fire
burns beyond the local detachment's capacity.
Firefighting equipment can
be summoned from city departments at the discretion of
the endowment lands chief.
Before the contract was
poncluded, city detachments
came voluntarily at the request of the university area
Now, the endowment lands
pay the city a retainer to provide back-up coverage.
Although UBC fire trucks
do not go to fires outside the
endowment lands, an inhala-
tor on one of the trucks is on
call for beach areas along
Marine Drive, Ferguson said.
"Of  course,   in   case  of   a
Civil Defense emergency, our
trucks would leave the endowment lands if necessary," he
pointed out.
Dormitory residents are the
fire prevention committee's
first and most serious concern,
according to Hughes.
"The rest of the fire poi-
sibilities on the campus are
insignificant compared to the
chance that a dorm full of students might be endangered
by a serious fire," he said.
The fire prevention committee, which is sometimes
expanded to include representatives of departments concerned with specific problems,
sets safety standards and
makes recommendations for
improving conditions it regards as dangerous.
Among the structures he
feels are especially susceptible
to fire, Hughes list administration, forestry and geology,
and math buildings.
Friendly local firemen
guard UBC from people
"The situation is more serious because of the records
stored in the administration
building,  and   the  map   and
archaeological   collect ions "
housed in forestry and math."
Hughes said.
"These buildings are of
frame construction and are
not in the best of condition to
with$tand fire," he added.
How do endowment lands
firemen stack up against their
colleagues in city and municipal areas?
Campus firemen are trained
to the same standards of proficiency as 'Vancouver eity
firefighters, and must pass the
same examinations for advancement. ',..■','
The 16-man detachment's
headquarters oh West Mall
are staffed 24 hours a day by
a captain and three regular
The fire chief has regular
daily office hours.
Facilities of the entire endowment lands district are
under study by the provincial
government and organizational changes may be made,
pending formation of a Crown
agency to administer both endowment lands and government property in Vancouver.
Since the fire department
is included in the general review, Ferguson, Hughes, and
Roland are all refusing to ex-
press opinions on the local detachment's adequacy.
So UBC's small contingent
of firefighters must do its best
despite its size to cope with
fires this side of the university
We're probably pretty safe
with them on the job.
Especially with help from
Vancouver just a radio call

Thunderbird defensive tackle Charlie Phipps put
UBC on the scoreboard with 9:31 left to play in the first
half when he scooped up a Whitman punter's fumble and
rumbled 15 yards into the Missionaries' end zone.
Quarterback Dick Gibbons scored UEC's second touchdown to cap a 42-yard fourth quarter march.
Glenn Brandt converted both majors.
Morris Hayden picked off two Whitman passes.
Sam Kravinchuk, Chip Barrett, Ben Stapleton, and Jim
Oldham each had one interception.
Whitman tried 39 passes, completing 16 for 158 yards.

The annual exodus of B.C.
athletes to colleges and universities in the United States
went off on schedule last
Competent, potentially excellent college athletes leave
every September to take advantage of the top coaching,
high-pressure publicity, and
enthusiastic fan appreciation

We can't fault them for any
more than we can criticize
local actors who head east
and/or south in search of
career opportunities.
Here, of course, the emphasis is on playing sports for
recreation. You work up a
sweat so that the post-game
beer (sorry) will taste good.
In Yankee Land, however,
college athletics are recognized as legitimate outlets for
talents peculiar to certain students.
To paraphrase Canada's
most progressive educator,
Dr. Gordon Shrum, a student
who can run'with a football
deserves the same encouragement as someone who can
combine paint and assorted
refuse into "art."
Shrum looks progressive
only because of the stubborn,
unenlightened athletic policy
of the rest of Canada's colleges. -—"
At UBC, any hint of full
scale athletic programs in major spectator sports is met
with horrified squeaking from
the chamber of the Men's Ath
letic Committee.
The committee, made up of
faculty and athletic representatives decides on all matters
related to men's intercollegiate sports.
Makers of UBC athletic policy try to hide their inability
to accept big time sports by
hiding behind a barrage of
critical references to abuses
common in American schools
15 years ago.
What they achieve with
their sanctimonious blather
about the purity of Canadian
university athletics is a convenient cover-up of the fact
that U.S. colleges have mended their ways.
Now, why should the good
guiders-of-athletic-policy want
to conceal such facts?
It might be because they
know that with increased emphasis on intercollegiate athletics, men who have taken
their positons will be proved
lacking in understanding and
judgment, unthinkable shortcomings for university professors.
Or perhaps they really believe Canada can benefit most
by resisting everything American, regardless of merit.
At best, such men are afraid
of losing their veneer of perspicuity and tolerance.
At the worst, they are resisting change to ensure the
survival of a national ethic
that allows mediocrity to continue on all fronts.
UBC rugger men
blast past
Barbarians 23-3
UBC's rugger Braves went on a scoring spree Saturday
at West Vancouver's Ambleside Park and blitzed to a 23-3
victory over West Van's Barbarians.
Braves were unable to settle down in the first half
against a fresh breeze and lively opposition.
Bob Chataway opened the scoring when he finished
off a great individual effort by Dave Austin.
West Van replied with a penalty goal but Gerry Allen
restored the lead with a drop goal and Denny Bolton
scored a great opportunist try, following another Austin
run, to give the Braves a 9-3 lead going into the second
Angus Allison suffered a broken leg in a fluke accident
in the first half and the Braves will miss the strong running
The Braves started the second half slowly, but with
Mike Judd playing his normal offensive game they soon got
on top.
Peter Lewis was a tower of strength in the pack and
following his example the forwards soon gave the backs an
endless supply of work.
Austin rounded off a good move to score a well-earned
try. Skipper Gerry Allan dived over for number four
following a forward rush and the Braves' diminutive fly
half, Reid Owen, sneaked over after a movement in which
almost the entire team handled the ball.
Mike Bird rounded out the Braves' scoring with a try,
following a move which started with Judd in his own in-
goal area.
In the second division "curtain raisers", Totems hung
on to score a hard earned 13-10 victory over West Vancouver, 'Birds drew with Trojans 9-9 and Tomahawks lost 14-3
to Trojans II.'

The college shop has tightened up its security.
In a report to student council Monday, college shop
manager, Bob Harris, said he had placed a padlock on the
His action follows a loss of $2,500 in last year's college
shop budget.
"Since the cause of this shortage was attributed to the
inadequacy of the security provided by the lock on the door,
a padlock has been attached," said Harris' report.
