Ubyssey Council Reporter
Durable  Dean  Just couldn't
But Dean Feltham, chairman of the Student Union
Building Committee for the
past three years, has insisted
on a lightened work load.
Monday night, Feltham startled student council with a letter of resignation which said
he wanted to go on to graduate
studies and therefore felt he
could not afford the long hours
necessary in his position.
Wednesday a beaming AMS
president Malcolm Scott announced that Feltham had reconsidered and would remain
for the balance of the term.
But AMS secretary Marnie
Wright requested applications
Wednesday for a new member
of the SUB committee, to help
The position will carry the
title of Architectural Competition Director. The Director
will prepare facility lists for
the   architectural  competition.
Deadline for applications is
Jan. 17.
Applicants should be in
second or third year, to provide continuity over the next
few years as the original planners, like Feltham, graduate.
In a further SUB development, AMS President Malcolm
Scott said Wednesday that the
actual date of the referendum
on the proposed $5 fee hike,
(for SUB financing), has not
yet been  decided.
He said it will take place
some time this term.

have waited until previously-disturbed section was re-
paved, and now an even deeper cavern is opening up
beside bus stop. Workmen are not just letting off steam,
they're putting it in — in pipes, of course.
A firebug set three fires on campus within minutes of
each other Wednesday night.
The first broke out in the men's washroom on the second
floor of the Old Arts building at 6:10 p.m.
Minutes later, at 6:15, another fire broke out in tine men's
washroom on the third floor of the main wing of Buchanan.
At 6:25, while firemen were
still fighting the Buchanan
blaze, another one was started
in the washroom at the south
<;nd of Brock Hall.
All three were started in
waste   containers.
They were the latest in a series of fires believed set by an

out early in December.
Wednesday night, afll janitors, the University Patrol,
campus RCMP and firemen
kept a special watch on buildings and grounds in an effort
to catch the firebug.
Brock Proctor Leo Kelsey
said the fires came too close
together to be a coincidence.
"They were set," he said.
Most serious of the fires
was in the Old Arts washroom.
Buildings and grounds head
Tom Hughes said the fire got
into a wall.
The fire destroyed a large
wastepaper container and a
towel rack.
Hughes said the fires were
"not serious."
Fire in Brock was discovered by AMS business manager
Ron Pearson, who went downstairs to find smoke pouring
from the washroom.
Firemen used hoses to douse
the fire in the old Arts building, but needed only extinguishers in Buchanan and Brock.
No arrests had been made
late Wednesday.

in the 50 to 60 per cent range,"
he said.
He was commenting on the
UBC announcement of a drastic change in entrance standards.
"We will, however, make
available a set of entrance
exams allowing extremely
bright students to enter university without completing
Junior Matriculation," he said.
"But they will have to
achieve marks of about 80 per
cent in these exams.
"Mathematics and English
will   be   the   two main   sub
jects of the exams," Shrum
He agreed UBC would probably become the senior university in the province.
"Simon Fraser will not emphasize graduate work, although we will have some
graduate facilities.
"This is necessary because
professors will not come to
a university which does not
offer such facilities."
Shrum said SFA will begin
to offer courses leading to a
master's   degree   quite   early
in its development program,

For PR college
City man
A Vancouver public relations consultant has offered
UBC $10,000 to set up a college of public relations.
Doug Smith, a public relations man for 20 years, made
the offer in a speech to a Burnaby service club Monday.
He is writing to the university outlining the offer.
"The university must start
producing people trained in the
art of communicating with
other people," Smith told The
Ubyssey   Wednesday.
"The universities spend millions of dollars on instructing
dead languages, but not one
cent on human relations."
He said several American
universities have set up colleges to train people in public
relations, but no Canadian
universities have.
"In this business we are all
still flying by the seats of our
pants," he said. "We need research in the delicate art of
public relations."
He said courses in the subject would not be sufficient.
"A full college is needed," he

any offer is accepted must be

officials would not comment
on Smith's offer until they
have made a preliminary study.
Smith said he expects other
public relations firms and industrial concerns would contribute to the proposed college.
He said they all would benefit from having trained consultants.
"Half the strife between labor and management could be
ended if only people could
communicate with each other,"
he said.
He said he would not consider giving the university
the grant without a college
being established. "It would
just be swallowed up in the
general funds," he said.

that the school laboratories

Brian Flewwelling is threatened with expulsion if he continues his fight for safer labs.
The threat was issued by Dr.

chemistry at the U of A, Edmonton.
Flewwelling issued his
warning following an incident
in which two students were

when an apparatus exploded.

And when he told other students of this, Dr. Brown
threatened him with expulsion from the course.
Later checks revealed that
only three of a dozen showers
were turned on.
Dr. Brown told his students
that "the labs are perfectly
safe." He said experiments
were designed in such a way
that serious accidents were
practically impossible.
However, in a lecture the
following day, Dr. Brown was
heard to say that the department was very concerned
over safety in the labs—but

The Sun and SFA
It was with raised eyebrows that we read the Sun's
Tuesday editorial concerning the semester system and
Simon Fraser.Academy.
The taxpayers have little sympathy for students' and
professors' complaints that such speed-ups in the educational process are undesirable, it said.
"Our burden is now so large and the growth of
student bodies so rapid that efficiency and speed must be
paramount. We are frankly in need of education mills."
Well now, gentlemen of The Sun, as much as students
and faculty alike realize the necessity of accommodating
huge student bodies of the near future, as you put it, the
last thing we can accept is an education mill.
Frankly, gentlemen, the trouble with this place right
now is that it is just that—an education mill, an academic
It seems to us that all the furor in higher education
at the moment seems to have centred around the idea
that quality must be paramount if we are to educate the
onrushing hordes in anything resembling a university
The Sun's arguments seem to favor the status quo.
There is no need to build SFA or enlarge Victoria College
if all we want is an education mill. Just build a few
more amphitheatres and stadiums out at UBC, and we'll
teach classes of 1,000 rather than 300 or 400, as we're
doing now.
That way, thousands more could get their degree—
the kind of degree The Sun seems to think is desirable.
And B.C. would continue to fall farther and farther behind the rest of Canada and the U.S. as far as the quality
of its graduates goes.
It seems to us that the intent of the Macdonald Report was not to create four or five new education mills,
but rather to provide a system whereby we could lower
our student-teacher ratios, increase research, library and
graduate school facilities, and generally improve the product of our present mill.
The decision of UBC's administration to increase entrance restrictions indicated they want no part of the idea
of an education mill.
Simon Fraser insists it will not become a rubber-
stamp diploma factory, either. And Victoria College is
right in line with SFA.
The unfortunate thing about it is that The Sun's
views are widely held—by many of those taxpayers its
editorial refers to.
Perhaps it is time the taxpayers were told—by The
Sun and other leaders of opinion in our province—that
the object of our universities is not to squeeze the greatest
number of people through a four-year period, at the least
possible expense.
One does not achieve the maximum possible results—
which surely is the development of a citizen who will be
of greater benefit to society than if he had not been able
to attend university—that way.
It is entirely possible that society would benefit most
from a very rigid university of high standards which admitted only the cream of our youth — although The
Ubyssey doubts that this is the case.
We think that every person—no matter how long he
lasts here, or how bad a failure he is academically—gains
something from attending university that he cannot gain
However, we must not lose sight of the basic assumptions and philosophy of the university in a mad rush to
give as many people as possible a status-symbol degree,
iloom must be given for some of this university stuff to
rub off on its transient customers—room that does not
exist in education mills.
We'd suggest that if TheSun wants to be frank in
future, it also be realistic and give some thought to the
implications of its statements.
Judging from Tuesday's editorial, all The Sun seems
to want is quantity and SFA, if you'll pardon the expression.

Fidel keeps up Cuba's morale

the history of Latin America.
It stayed over Cuba for an

All the first-class restaurants and night-clubs have

some 72 restaurants, where
meals averaged $5-$15, have
been shut down. This has led
to a general overcrowding in
the ordinary cafes, where the
meals are mostly rice (at $2-
$5). In the hotels, the dining
room is reserved for guests.

Bread is the one staple not
rationed, thanks especially to
Canadian wheat. When the recent $500 million Canada-Rus-

$30 million of it was earmarked for Cuba, and when
news of the cyclone reached
Russia, the shipment was
doubled to $60 million.
When the cyclone had
passed and the damage was
roughly tabulated, Fidel gave
a TV interview in which he
outlined plans for the rebuilding of Oriente and Camaguey.

In addition, he proposed a
five-year, $200-million plan
for food control in Oriente
and Camaguey consisting of
dams, dykes, canals, etc., to
prevent similar devastation in
any further hurricanes.
To finance this project, Fidel proposed price increases
of 5c on each bottle of beer
(currently 25c); 5c on a package of cigarets (currently 15c),
and so on.

It was also suggested that
it was necessary to ration
sugar so that Cuba could export more to raise dollars to
buy additional construction
The following day, Oct. 22,
Fidel's speech was carried in
full by the Cuban newspapers.
It was a vital issue—in normal times Cubans use a prodigious amount of sugar—and
think what protests a 5c increase in the cost of beer and
cigarettes would cause anywhere.
Meetings were held in factories, stores, offices, and on
the farms. Telegrams and
letters were sent to Fidel,
busses carried placards taped
across the front, "The work
ers of route 6 approve Fidel's
plan." Some factories suggested a further increase in
prices and almost just as unbelievably others suggested a
sugar ration of only five or
even four lbs.

On Oct. 31, in another TV
address to the people, Fidel
called them to assemble outside the Palace on the following night. As soon as the
workers finished their labors
at 5 p.m. they began assembling at the palace. Soon hundreds of trucks and busses
poured in from the countryside; by 7 p.m. thousands of
citizens were marching and
singing toward the Palace. At
8 p.m. a fantastic crowd of
between 500,000 and 700,000
people were assembled.
The new prices of 20c for
cigarets, 55c for meat and 65c
for poultry were quickly
agreed upon. There was some
discussion about the beer, but

Editor, The Ubyssey:
I was a student at UBC for
five years, while it was widely known that the surest way
of being a smashing success

Another bold offender was
Terry McCormick of Bralorne
who was toting a case of lik-
ker to his abode and the RCMP caught up with him. Constable Hare lifted the precious stuff off Terry in no uncertain manner. Howard then
hid it in the old police barracks, or thought he did. Terry was charged with theft of
over $50, pleaded guilty to
stealing his won likker and is
out on bail.

Nothing loathe
RGGU takes on
rest of campus
Watch out clubsmen, you
the RGGU.
It is going to challenge you
to all kinds of debates, song-
fests, contests, and forums, all
to make you give a statement
of your basic beliefs.
Fraternities are included,
said club president Gerry Cormick Wednesday.
The RGGU, in case you
didn't know, stands for nothing.
Not even the President
knows what it is.
But it will publish a paper,
sponsor debates, conduct an
"all causes rally" and generally make a nuisance of itself.
All in the cause of the RGGU.
It plans to have a debate in
Brock Lounge on Tuesday,
Jan. 14, but Ken Leitch, AMS
Co-ordinator, says he will have
to investigate the club first.
He doesn't know what to investigate though, because the
RGGU means nothing, does
nothing and is nothing.
The proposed topic is: "Was
Oepidus right?" This will take
the form of a debate, sort of.
It will be a combination of
McGoun  Cup debaters  debat-
are about to be assaulted by
ing, the audience talking and
a public forum all in one.
And the paper wil come out
monthly, maybe, says Cormick.
It will consist of articles contributed to the RGGU at its
headquarters (wherever that
may be).
Cormick stressed that the
new club has no connections
with the Non-Conforming Calathumpiums.
"They are committed because they have a name," he
said, "our initials do not stand
for anything."
He said the RGGU is considering challenging the Calathumpiums to a debate.
The all-causes rally will be
an opportunity for anyone
with a problem which the
Chaplain can't solve to unburden themselves, and for
those people who think something is rotten at UBC, in
Canada, or in the world.
It will take place in front
of the Library sometime.
So if the RGGU excites you,

headquarters somewhere, some

from it," Miss Wright said
Wednesday, "the position takes
away from the duties of secretary."
"But it's much more interesting for me now, and it will
be for the people who come
after me."
Miss Wright explained that
the newly-hired executive secretary, Mrs. Neve Springman,
will be taking minutes at meetings, will work on reorganizing AMS files, and will do
some letter-writing.
Mrs. Springman will take
some of the workload off other
executives as well, freeing
them from some of the repetitious work their offices entail.
But more important, said
Miss Wright, the executives
will now be able to extend
their activities into fields more
beneficial to the student body.
"I'm doing some things now
that otherwise just wouldn't
have been done," said Miss
Wright. As an example, she

It's going to be one of those long terms, like last year.
And the year before.
UBC's long-promised long weekend for the middle of

Open House has excluded any possibility of a midterm
break, registrar J. E. Parnall said Wednesday.
The first break will come March 26, with the Easter

Through AIESEC
Seven get chance
to work abroad
Seven UBC students have the chance to work overseas
through the connections of a university club.
The UBC chapter of the 31
nation organization has arranged exchange jobs for between seven and 12 students
while the same number of foreign students will work in Vancouver.
Fifteen years ago, students
from seven European countries
formed the Association Internationale des studiants de
science economique et commercials, in order to promote
international understand i n g
and to give students the
chance to complement their
studies with practice.
Students will be put into
jobs similar to the management training programs of local department stores and
larger corporations.
The Canadian students taking part in AIESEC spend a
practical period in business in
a foreign country for three
summer months.
The students will visit other
enterprises and through discussions with their personnel
he will learn the problems of
producing, financing and selling.
Social activities will be arranged through the foreign office of AIESEC.
UBC students wishing to
join the program may apply
in the AIESEC office in Brock

in February, or at the general

have improved CUS' financial
position, he said.
But Scott pointed out that
UBC isn't pulling its weight
in CUS finances.
We pay an average of 45
cents per student to CUS, Scott
said. Almost every other university in Canada pays 60
cents per student, and Alberta
and Manitoba pay $1 a head.
A plan to utilize possible
Centennial Grants from the
Federal Government in 1967
was also discussed.
The erection of a National
Youth Building was proposed.
CUS would raise the money
and build the structure, with
help from the government,
then would rent offices in it
to other national youth groups
such as the World University
Service and the Canadian University Service  Overseas.
CUS would have its headquarters there.
"At present we rent pretty
crumby quarters in Ottawa at
exorbitant prices," Scott said.
Improvements in student
services were also dealt with
at the conference.
International student identi
ty cards, costing $2 and previously available only from
Ottawa, will shortly be available here.
These cards allow special
student rates fn hostels, museums, and for transportation.
"I've heard people say they
save you $4 the first day,''
Scott said.

students from the other western universities.
UBC sent five delegates, he
