Intrepid reporter Tom Wayman finds what's atop Burnaby Mountain: Chancellor Gordon Shrum and SFA
And that's  Shrumthing

SIMON FRASER ACADEMY (Staff)—We dood it.
The Ubyssey, previously
limited to covering only UBC
like a blanket, has hit the pinnacle of journalism.
We now cover SFA like a
A wet blanket.
All this is a roundabout way
of announcing that on Thursday afternoon, I found the site
of the new Academy.
I pushed through the last
thicket, tripped over the last
boulder, fell into the last puddle, and there I was.
All around me, on the mountain top, was SFA.
And that isn't much.
A few surveyors strolled
about the newly-cleared location.
Fearlessly, I a p p r o a ched
"Hello   people,"   I  said.  "Is

this really SFA? I'm from
UBC, see, and ..."
A large, balding man interrupted me.
"A student!" he exclaimed.
He clasped his hands together,
turned his eyes to the sky and
muttered what sounded to me
like:  "My first!"
• •    •
"Come with me," he said,
and led the way across the
clearing, chuckling to himself.
At the edge of the clearing
was a carved chair and a huge
desk. The man seated himself,
then held out his hand towards
me, palm up.
"Welcome," he said grandly.
He gestured with his outstretched palm at the clearing.
"This, all this, is mine. AH
this is SFA."
I was overcome with emotion. I had made it after all.
I snatched off my hat, inadvertantly releasing my last
homing pigeon.
"Gosh, your honor," I said.
''You must be .... "

"That's right," he said.
"Downtown I may be just another power tycoon, but up
here  I'm   really Shrumbody."
"A real thrill," I said. Then
I noticed his palm was still
outstretched. "But I've got to
go," I said nervously.
"Sit down," he thundered.
"I've got one student now, and
I'm not going to give him up.
"After all, SFA doesn't open

. . . habitual unpunctuality
And then
who sneaked
into council?
Stocky Scott was hot under
the collar.
With temper on edge after
Monday's marathon seven-hour
Council meeting, he blasted
the councillors for their habitual unpunctuality.
This was at midnight on
Monday, when after dealing
with only one item of Scott's
29-point manifesto on AMS
bureacracy, council" sleepily
agreed to a special meeting at
4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
At 4:45 p.m., AMS first vice-
president Jim Ward disgustedly started the meeting with 18
of the 27 councillors present.
And at 4:50 p.m. who should
sneak in but Scott.
He gave no explanation, but
neither did he comment on the
other empty chairs.

text charges
Charges that UBC's bookstore is gouging students are a
"lot of malarkey."
This was bookstore manager
John Hunter's reply to charges
that his store could reduce
prices and retain a profit.
A downtown book buyer told
The Ubyssey Wednesday UBC's
bookstore could reduce prices
as much as 20 per cent and
still make a large profit.
"The farthest thing from our
minds is to soak the students,"
Hunter said. "We give them
every break we can."
Hunter said the bookstore's
net profit is a maximum four
per cent. The gross mark-up is
14 per cent. "I've never seen
a text book sold cheaper downtown," he remarked.
Hunter said the UBC store

"We're making less profit
than any other school in Canada, he said. We absorb the
higher freight charges and

AB RICHARDS . . . keep up the old spirit
Keep spirit up,
Trekker urges
Things have changed at UBC since Ab Richards first
arrived on campus in 1922.
But the spirit he helped develop is still alive.
Not anti-calendar
who was AMS
president and leader of the
great trek to Point Grey in
1923, first came to the campus
carrying a stone to build the
cairn on the Main Mall.
Thursday he received a replica of that cairn when he was
presented with the 1963 Great
Trekker award.
"Students have carried on
the spirit of that first great
trek," said Richards.
" I would like to think that
spirit had its origin in the
days of The Great Trek.
"That spirit was quite evident in the Back Mac campaign for higher education
last spring," he said, "It was a
thrilling story.
"The campaign brought back
fond memories," he said, "And
I would have loved to join in.
"Your plan for higher education is very sound," he said.
"You seem, to have won the
public's confidence, and the
government cannot ignore
He said that students should
continue to educate the public.
In the original Great Trek,
students paraded downtown,
then trekked out to UBC carrying stones for the cairn.
They collected thousands of
signatures on a petition calling for development of the
Point Grey campus. Shortly
after, construction began.
The stones brought out by
the students are still sealed in
the cairn. "There weren't quite
enough," said Richards, "So
the sciencemen came back at
night and filled it up."
He said he is amazed at the
amount of building going on
at UBC.
"The spirit of the students
is shown in all the new buildings students have built for
themselves," he said, "like
Brock, the gym, and now the
winter sports arena."
Council has date
with un-calendar
Council doesn't like the administration's calendar, but
neither does it like an anti-calendar.
"Quite often what's in the
calendar bears little or no relation to what's actually in the
course," said AMS president
Malcolm Scott at Wednesday's
special  councjl  meeting.
Scott added that faculty
have given a mixed reaction
to the idea of an anticalendar
—which rates books, professors
and courses as to value as well
as content.
So council settled for approving in principle the idea
of a mimeographed listing of
course outlines, supplied by
professors giving the course.
"We should put pressure on
various departments to outline their courses in booklet
form such as the English department does," said AMS coordinator Ken Leitch.
Councillors were discussing
AMS president Malcolm Scott's
29-point manifesto recommending a cleanup of AMS bureaucracy.
Actions resulting from other
points were:
First vice-president Jim
Ward was appointed to organize two committees: an examination of AMS, and a reorganized High School Conference committee.
Treasurer Chris Hansen is
to form a committee to review the AMS financial structure.
Scott is to look after the annual brief to the provincial

"The library is exciting,"
she purred. "I know a freshman who got lost in there.

a plastic swizzle-stick. "But

In an editorial taking up the

Serge Menard accuses Lussier
of sabotaging student appeals
for free education; of not fighting for higher education in the
province and of indifference to
student needs.
"Do we have to wait for another rector?" he asks.
Earlier the provincial government had to step in to settle a dispute between Lussier
and the students over a 10-
cent increase in meal prices.
"The attitude of Msgr. Lussier forces us to ask some questions about his understanding
of the problems of education
and the principles of student
action," said Menard.
"Can the province today permit the rector of the largest
university to remain when he
does not approve of the struggle for universal education?
"Can it be believed that in
nine years as a rector a man
has not found the time to
think about the role of the student in society?

A plurality
It's official now. We can assure you with certainty
that the plural of symposium is symposia.
The birth of the Fall Symposium as a cousin to Academic Symposium in the spring has made "symposia"
proper usage at UBC, even respectable. Such an event
should not go unapplauded.
Since its inception, the Academic Symposium has
fashioned an important role for itself on campus. Yet
it has been in the nature of an undercurrent rather than
in the mainstream of student affairs.
Perhaps in this proliferation, if proliferation can be
used to describe two, the nemesis that has pursued Academic Symposium can be finally destroyed.
The spectre has been bearded, Harris-tweeded, egg-
headed and pipe-smoking. The stereotype, like most
stereotypes, has been faulty. It has never been, and we
hope never will be, the policy of symposia to become a
hangout for Joe College, who thinks intellectuality is an
Unfortunately, the nemesis has persisted and, in
some ways, (has prevented Academic Symposium from
becoming a microcosm of the campus.
The Academic Symposium has looked wisely for its
topics within the university fabric. It has often shaken
the wrinkles, aired out the material, and given the whole
a good thrashing.
Although many of us are strange bed partners, we
all have a share in this process, because each of us is
trying to snuggle under this blanket called a university.
The Fall Symposium is likewise attempting to thrust
its sabre and perforate some incongruences. Their theme
is "The Individual in Mass Society." That means you
6096-62-1 and you 4785-60-1.
Then let this be the year of the engineer, the scientist,
the doctor, the lawyer, the artist, the nurse, the home economist, the social scientist, the humanist, the theologian,
the mathematician, the geologist and the agriculturist.
The round table has many vacancies. A podium is
reserved for your ideas, and there are attentive ears on
which they can fall.
A symposium is an adventure. It is intense, exhausting, a communion, a bull session with a point and a direction. It is a blessed moment when the formal roles of professor, student and alumni become blurred. It is painful because it involves thought. It's a reservoir oi
grievance and suggestion.
It provides sustenance, but it is not a neatly wrapped
Care package.

Well, say, things certainly have changed around here, haven't they, fellas?
Who's God?
By Jack Ornstein
7 just don't see it'
Yesterday a 'science student' called me a fool or madman for saying that we must
inevitably conclude that
there's no god. God's like mom
and dad, he argues, in that he
bore us and raised us—then
a fool such as I (as the song
goes) denies this devine dad's
very existence. How naughty!
•    •    •
This nameless (and who can
blame him?) individual says
we believe that there are electrons through we can't see
them — so why hesitate to
believe in god? I suppose this
argument is calculated to
show that we should believe
in anything that's invisible—
e.g. goblins, santa, and our
way  clear.
Of course nobody expects to
SEE god . . . since there IS
none. Apart from this minor
consideration, god is usually
described as being 'spirit' or a
'power' ... and who could see
THAT? My argument is that
we have no reason or right
to infer from observation of
this world that there's a benevolent and wise being of any
sort. It's self-delusion. An
obsessional neurosis as Freud
said. The opiate of the masses,
as Marx said.
•    •    •
Then this gentle reader bids
me look skywise and proclaim "How? Why? . . . Man!
Look at all that order!" (and
other similar ejaculations).
After conducting this 'experiment' I'm to conclude
that a 'god' created and ordered the world. This is called
the argument from design,
which was thoroughly discredited centuries ago by
David Hume in his Dialogues
on Natural Religion, available
cheap, even in our bookstore.
As to the origin of the stars
and our planet, we'd do better
to look to science rather than
merely label our ignorance

This week's Artisan had an
editorial. As soon as it came
out, my "hot line" was ringing.   And it kept ringing.
•    •    •
I hope the Artisan editor is
not harrassed. I respect him
for printing his opinion.
But I'd respect him a helluva lot more if it was an informed opinion he printed—
it obviously wasn't.
So you're against the Student   Union   Building?      Be

shiney (sic) offices for the

sheet of the Arts Undergraduate Society, contained

needs a student union building." Mike Coleman. Arts
President, replies to the editorial.
the manner in which it was
If you had, you'd know
that the SUB is based on the
needs and desires of the students, and that the facilities
list was drawn up in accordance with what the students
themselves wanted most. We
know.    We asked them.
Like food services. This is
easy to understand. The present services a re crammed,
congested, and loaded far beyond capacity. And the campus population is growing by
1,000 students a year.
Or like a reading room. A
music room. An auditorium.
Seminar rooms.
And, at long last, a decent
ballroom. Ask any dance
organizer about THAT.
So you want "more provision made for students, and
less for impressiveness."
What, may I ask, do you
think is the whole point of a
student union building?
Face   it—this   campus   has
very little spirit. It has
no place where the intellect
can be challenged. Where the
individual is open to broadening social experience.
A campus centre. A fully-
utilized focal point. Not at
all like that old barn, the
Brock. That's SUB. And
every student councillor personally backs it.
Ask the students what they
need. Ask if they have any
feeling for their Alma Mater.
Then check the list of facilities thoroughly. Next time
you editorialize- on SUB,
you'll have an informed opinion. One that deserves respect because it won't be distorted.
That last one was.
istenoe of a god or gods have
Religious belief is caused
by many things, chief among
which are fear of death or
love of life. Both are emotional reactions to the world—
not reasons or justifications
for belief.
Statements about god(s)
have no objective reference. It
may make one feel good to
utter the word 'god' but let's
face it, 'god' has only emotive
meaning. (Unless you call an
idol 'god' of course).
* *    *
Lastly, the 'science student'
(of astrology perhaps) implies
that god created the universe.
If one really feels that something had to cause the universe (i.e., everything) — (a
funny feeling) — then surely
this thing too would require
• •    •
Did god cause himself (a
contradiction in terms) or was
he caused by another 'god' (ad
infinitum)? So we're left with
a contradiction; or MANY
gods! If you say that god has
always existed, then why not
just say that the universe
always existed?
The simple-minded ignorance exhibited by 'science
student' is typical of genuine
religious believers — we
sympathize with their sincerity but we deplore their
naivete and ignorance. But
it's bliss isn't it!

position as head of Underdog.
"It seems few people," said
with The Ubyssey, "believe
anyone in his right mind
would do something for nothing." For his attempts to help
the persecuted he has been
called everything from a com
munist to a crook.
He has endured insults and
been thrown out of homes,
offices, and even embassies.
But he has triumphed. In two
years, Underdog has helped
1,500 people.

Underdog has postal boxes
in ten provinces and special
mailing arrangements in the
other countries in which it operates.
"From these we receive
1,000 claims a month." said
Cowlishaw, "About 38 per
rent of these are not valid.
We write these people and
explain to them that they are
not really being wronged."
One quarter of the mail is
from cranks asking Underdog
what they are trying to prove,
or accusing them of undermining the principles of democracy.

working on several hundred
cases — an Australian secretary wrongfully fired from
her firm; a British engineer
deported from Liberia because he married a coloured
girl; a man imprisoned in a
Canadian mental institution
although he was judged sane
two years ago; a man wrongfully convicted of murder
waiting for the firing squad.
Now Underdog has new responsibilities. Earl Stanley
Gardner, the creator and chief
administrator of the Court of
Last Resort has retired.
The Court of Last Resort
was an "underdog-type" organization in the U.S.
In a letter to Underdog,
Gardner transferred all his
cases to Underdog.
Money is always a problem
for a non-profit organization.

Spokesman for presidents
learned to pick his words
As a spokesman for two
presidents, G«offrey IDavies
has got used to picking his
words carefully.
And he does the same thing
when he talks about himself,
weighing the implications of
every word.
At 41, Davies is the executive assistant to the president
—a post he held under former
president Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie.
This is another in the series,

Davies has probably got one
of the busiest schedules of
anyone on campus.
For a starter, he's Dr. John
Macdonald's advisor, executive assistant and representative on multi-committees.
He's one of the authors of
the Macdonald Report, and
helped draft the New Univer
sities  Act for the  last  legislative session.
On top of it all, he lectures
on British Commonwealth development for the International Studies dept. -
Davies admits he can't fit
it all into a seven-and-a-half
hour day.
"But I don't feel sorry for
myself," he insists. He says he
doesn't do any more than the
average professor.
"Hardly anybody on the
faculty works under seven-
and-a-half hours in a day.
There's too much to do."

How can love survive the long
winters? — i.e., how can romance
survive the dissipating routine of
marriage and the essential nature
of man and woman itself? Ingmar
Bergman poses this -problem in
A Lesson in Love, but provides us
— not with a solution — but a
The basic problem of marriage,
as represented by Bergman, i3
inherent in the divergent sexual
natures of men and women, and is
therefore basically insoluble. Men
experience sex primarily as an isolated physcial activity easily dissociated from the rest of experience. Although they may indulge
spasmodically in romance it can
never premanently absorb their interest. For women, however, sex is
always subordinate to romance —
to a personal relationship with another human being — which alone
gives their life meaning. Even in
later life this function does not
disappear but is absorbed by the
maternal   instinct.
• •    •
Bergman divides males into two
classes — primitive, creative men
and civilized analytical men, each
of which responds to women in different ways. Primitive man is represented by the sculptor Carl
Adam, an earthly, hairy - chested
boor who calls all women "girlie."
Like primitive man there is no
dichotomy in his nature. He experiences life physically and spontaneously. Women are a natural, organic part of his existence and essential for his artistic inspiration.
However, although they are indispensable to his life, they can
never exist for him as individuals.
Civilized man, represented by
the pale, cultivated gynecologist,
has lost this unity of experience.
His highly developed rational
powers have given him the ability
to analyze his experience, which
has robbed it of its spontaneity.
They have created a division between his body and his mind and
made him  self-conscious.
• •    •
Although   he   does   not   inhibit
their expression, his passions embarrass him because he sees them
as inferior to reason, and the feeling of romantic love arising from
them, as contrary to it. His primary fulfillment is through his
mental powers — in the practice of
his profession which absorbs most
of his interest. His extreme detachment from physical love and his resultant repressed interest in it, is,
of course, exemplified in his choice
of profession — the objective,
scientific study of sex divorced
from human experience. He extends this clinical attitude to personal relationships as well. His
marriage is not based on romance
but on a sober social contract, necessary for the preservation of
society. He allows an amorous
patient to become his mistress for
the summer only on the understanding that it will in no way affect the permanency of his marriage. He consciously allows himself to yield temporarily to his
passions, fully aware that, intellectually, it will be a boring experience.
The doctor's wife, however, like
all women, is extremely romantic.
She once rejected Carl Adam in
favor of her husband, because, as
a civilized man, he possessed greater sensitivity and appeared to have
a greater concern for her as an
individual. However, after sixteen
years of marriage, she has become
repelled by his increasing absorption in his work and his lack of
affection for her as a woman. In
desperation she renews her relationship with Carl Adam, who,
despite his crudity, at least pays
attention to her. When she learns
that her husband has a lover, she
becomes hysterical and determines
to obtain a divorce and marry the
sculptor. Her pathetic dependence
upon romance to give meaning to
her existence horrifies her daughter, who recognizes in it the universal condition of women. In anger
her daughter tries to oppose her
own nature by dressing like a boy.
She tries to find fulfillment in
some individual form of creativity,
as men do, and makes arrangements to enter her uncle's pottery
shop as an apprentice.
• •    •
But when the security of his
marriage is threatened — the
social unity which he values so
highly as a rational man -^"ilie
husband is forced to change his behaviour. He travels to Copenhagen
and abducts his wife from the
sculptor in a slap-stick bistro
brawl. He satisfies his wife's desire for romance by taking her to
an expensive hotel where a lavish
wedding suite and private banquet
have been prepared for them.
• •    •
His behaviour — his solution to
the problem of love — is therefore
a compromise. It is not the result
of an inner conversion to romantic
love but simply a practical necessity dictated by outer circumstances. Because of his physical
nature as a man, he can never fully
return his wife's romantic passion
— he can only indulge it.
• •    •
Nevertheless, as a man he is
fascinated by her — by her inconsistency and fluctuating emotions
which are so different from his
own pedestrian temperment. On
the personal level, however, she
is still a plaything — like Nora in
the Doll's House—but on a social
level she is the indispensable basis
of society.
He learns the lesson long accepted by his own father who submits to the maternal attentions of
his wife by a rigorous exercise of
good-humored indulgence.

Last week I decided, even if you
didn't, that Allan Sillitoe's novel
"Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" was non-rebel literature.
Some will argue that non-rebellion
is the only possible attitude left to
us in the Western world and that
it is obviously better, from the
point, of view of individual growth,
to bitch about society than to accept it blandly and unconditionally. At least the non-rebel has the
means of turning himself on;—for
example he can always get out his
guitar and his folk song sheets and
join a Ban-the-Bomb march. He
experiences a feeling of elation
even though he accomplishes nothing politically. I think there are
grains of truth in this point of
• •    •
On the other hand it needs no
more than ten per cent vision to
observe that the world is fast becoming an over-populated stamping ground for ad. men, salesmen,
social engineers and robot designers; for the apathetic who see no
alternative to allowing themselves
to be governed by missile brandishing moral cretins.
The non-rebel writer cashes in
on these facts by using them as
arguing points —• as cosmetics for
his literary personality. Meanwhile
he collects his royalties just as
his heroes collect their pay checks,
pays his income tax and so provides his government with the
means to destroy him. You'd think
that if he felt his complaints were
soundly based he would do something about them; but he does nothing because he cannot retain the
two opposing notions of political
action and his own comfort simultaneously. It would not matter in
the least, of course, if the non-
rebellion he promulgates did not
lead to political quietism, evasion
and self-deception. After these non-
rebellious remarks about Sillitoe,
I'd like to turn to Celine.
• •    •
Celine's two best novels, "Journey to the End of the Night" and
"Death on the Installment Plan"
were seminal influences on some of
the better modern writers like
Miller, Algren, Kerouac and Bros-
sard. Yet oddly enough there
doesn't appear to be a tedium of
lit. crit. about him as there is, say,
about Joyce whose influence on
literature seems to have waned. In
fact I've met a lot of widely-read
people who've never even heard of
him — hence my justification for
writing about him here.
• •    •
Like Jonathan Swift, Celine saw
man as a hybrid of brute and
criminal; unlike Swift his digust
was complete — he found not even
the saving grace of "reason". Unlike Swift he was a moral nihilist
but, like Swift, his books are
enormously, hilariously funny.
Swift and Celine have in common
an "excremental" vision of life so
intense that it borders on copro-
philia but, put besides Celine,
Swift's diatribes seem like the
conversation of a playful country
gentleman with a taste for polite
irony. "Journey to the End of the
Night" for example, can be read as
a Kafkan labyrinth of meaningless-
ness, as a kind of Catherine wheel
sputtering out random and magnificent bursts of poetic imagery, as
a series of Grand Guignol tableaux,
as a comedy of the grotesque and
finally as proletarian novel. It is
this latter aspect that might be
made to fit into my general theme.
(To be continued.)

. . Rowlandson at gallery
Countless thousands have laughed at foibles recounted in Jane
Austen's novels, as they have
laughed at Thomas Rowlandson's
charicatures of the British as they
visit Bath, travel through London
or visit a tavern. Both have genius
that should not be missed —Rowlandson drawings are on display at
the Vancouver Art Gallery till
November third.
• •    •
Grotesque faces and postures vie
with one another for the viewer's
attention, humor shows up in unexpected corners just as unmistake-
able humanity or the sublime
beauty of the human face are
caught by Rowlandson. Monstrous-
bellied men and fat - bosomed
women frolick through Bullock's
Museum; gargoyles roam the
streets of London; Nelson is toasted
on the decks of his ship — Rowlandson is outstanding as his
method of charicature is almost unknown today. For a window on the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, see the Rowlandson works

"Masterpiece   of the  Month"   is
Canaletto's Vegetable Market and
San Giacometlo. Fortunately or unfortunately, Canaletto paints in
the photographic vein. The clothes-
monger is frozen in a obsequious
bow; a woman is "stayed" amongst
the goldsmith shops—technically,
Canaletto is perfect but overtones
of the commercial perfection
sought by English art-collectors
creeps into the work.

Witold Malcuzynski, last pupil of
the famous Paderewski, took on a
great challenge when he played a
concert devoted exclusively to
Chopin's music. The great Polish
pianist succeeded in keeping the
enthusiastic audience captive
throughout the entire evening. His
many varied nuances made up for
the lack of variety in style necessitated by the all-Chopin programme. Exploring all facets of
tone variety, he excelled in the
number of different tone colours
he  could produce.
• •    •
All of the melodic sections were
played with the most fluent singing tone, phrased beautifully, and
deeply felt. He charged every note
with fullest meaning and brought
out every hidden secondary melodic motive in the inner parts.
• •    •
The complete independence of
his two hands was remarkable; he
succeeded not only in producing
different dynamics in each hand,
but also in achieving different tone
and sustaining qualities. His use
of the pedals was extremely proficient. As a whole, his technique
was flawless and served the interpretive elements of the music entirely.
• •    •
Particularly memorable was the
exquisite bell-like tone achieved'
in the Scherzo of the Sonate. The
shimmering piccolo-like tone in
the first Mazurka was equally distinctive.
• •    •
The Schrezo in B minor No. 2, a
praiseworthy piece in itself, was
the highlight of the programme
and it was played to perfection.
The four encores were fully enjoyed, but the last one, a stunning
Valse, concluded the evening in
grand style. Malcuzynski was justly rewarded with a standing ovation.

True, there were several
touch football games in progress on frat house lawns. A
person driving along Wesbrook
Crescent had the opportunity
to see a goodly number of
young men in T-shirts and old
trousers scrambling around
after a few battered B-A footballs.
• •    •
Maybe there weren't enough
footballs for everyone. At any
rate, the roofed portion of the
Stadium was nearly full.
The cheerleaders were there.
They pranced around end exhorted the fans to cheer. They
should've known better. The
only thing that drew cheers
was a cartwheel.
The Thunderbird squad came
out across the running track to
their bench. An especially observant student spotted them
and made the appropriate exclamations of approval: "Hey
you Birds. Get 'em now. Let's
go, UBC." and so on .
Some other students heard
him, and picked up his words.
By the time the entire squad
was on the field, there was
NOISE coming from the stands.
• •    •
When Alberta scored twice
in less than a minute, the-
grumbling began. The air was
full of gripes and jibes; half-
conscious remarks floated out
as students rationalized their
earlier enthusiasm.
The third Alberta touchdown came. Now there was
open ridicule among the spectators. This was more like it.
This was the UBC football fan
in his element.
But down on the field, the
T-birds were too busy catching up to listen to their supporters. UBC had begun to play
football. The offense clicked,
the ball moved towards the
Bear goal line.
• •    •
Once again, an observant
type noted the change. The
Birds scored, and the fans
perked up.
Alberta scored, but UBC
came right back for another
six points. By this time people
had begun to realize that the
Thunderbirds had no intention of rolling over and giving
up. They were playing to win

The Alberta games last weekend
finally brought two good cheerleaders
out of the woodwork—AMS president
Malcolm Scott and first vice-president
Jim Ward.
They had no trouble getting people
in the packed West stand to holler.
Perhaps their  method  was  better.
A pictorial presentation of the methods used is offered, with the suggestion that UBC fans are sick and tired
of watching pathetic girls in short skirts
trying to work up some enthusiasm in
themselves in order to work up some
enthusiasm in the crowd.
Enthusiasm. That seems to be the
key word.
Our cheerleaders never seem to have
very much. They always seem to be interested more in being seen than heard.
But Scott and Ward presented pictures of enthusiasm, in great quantities.
And they didn't seem to give a damn
how they looked. They wanted to be

UBC Junior Varsity splashed to a 57-0 win over the
Victoria Hornets Sunday at Varsity Stadium.
The Hornets defeated UBC 22-12 in their first clash
this year.
The sloppy weather didn't bother backs Vic Iwata and
Jim Cincade, who scored two and three touchdowns respectively.
The Junior's defense kept Victoria from crossing
midfield all afternoon.
The Juniors play an exhibition game Sunday against
the Seattle Cavaliers.

Eye-Catching  Suits !
These aren't for studying,, . . . they're for carousing.
Tweed, herringbone-patterned jacket with pants of fine
wool worsted and matching, contrasting reversing vest, a
different button styling on each  side.
Jacket has vented pockets that stretch amounts, handy and roomy
for yours and your girl friend's hands. There's a belt for you
too; not in the chops, chap, but back of the coat.
The pants are plain, fine wool worsted, slim and tapered
with nary a pleat. Pockets are slashed for a fast draw
if you're serious about out-fumbling someone for a check.
The other suit has no secret changes, pockets, no chameleon-like
effects. It's just good; you see,
it was built that way . . . it's a Birkdale and
[here just ain't none better.
Shirts are casual; tapered: to wear with or without ties.
If you insist on ties make with a bouncy Ascot. You
won't know how to arrange it but can you think of a
better conversation piece? Flop it around your neck, let the real
you shine through.
Prices? Heck, man, we've got all kinds. Come in. See these
habilments. Try them on . . .
And, oh yes, a Happy Homecoming    .    .    .

a dime — for the Bus
A hassle over 10 cents delayed final passage of the 1964
AMS budget for more than half an hour.
The dispute centered around
an earlier council decision to
reduce the grant to Men's
Athletic Commission by 10
cents for each male student.
It amounted to a $1,410 reduction of MAC funds.
In a letter Monday MAC's
executive secretary Bus Phillips told council MAC needed
the extra dime because it had
already budgeted  the   money.
Council after debate rescinded the earlier motion.
The ten-cent reduction by
council was intended to cut
out intra-mural athletic expenditures by MAC. Council
said it would make special
grants for specific intra-mural
