raises tempest
Poll finds
SUB faces
rough
The proposed $5 AMS fee
boost to pay for the Student
Union Building may be in for
rough going.
Fourteen out of 27 students
polled by The Ubyssey Wednesday were opposed to the
fee   increase.
A referendum on the subject will be held Nov. 22.
It needs a two-thirds majority to pass.
Ten of the students polled
were against the whole concept of the SUB.
Many upper-year students
objected to paying for a building they are not going to use.
Other students felt the
money should be spent on more
eating and classroom facilities.
"I'm against the fee boost,"
said Al Campbell Arts 4. "I
approve of SUB but I think its
cost should be spread over a
larger number of students."
"We need more study facilities, not SUB," said Freshman
Bob Johnston.
Fred Rankine, Education 3,
said: "I'm all for the boost. The
benefits will be received by
students here now. In 30 years,
students will have other things
to pay for."

By ROGER McAFEE
The national office of tihe Canadian Union of Students
does not want the latest edition of Campus Canada
distributed in Quebec.
But Quebec's deputy minister of culture, Guy Fregault,
and leading separatist, Pierre Bourgault, at UBC for French
Canada week, disagree.
The incident arose when the
national office phoned Campus
Canada office here complaining that some words in the
French text were broken in
the wrong places at the end of
lines.
They told the Campus Canada editor the mistake showed
"childishness and might ruin
the reputation of the union of
students in Quebec."
"These mistakes will be an
insult to the readers in Quebec," said Jean-Pierre Bourduas, secretary for Quebec affairs.
"We must halt distribution
before we are drowned in the
laughter from   Quebec."
Fregault, when shown a
copy of the magazine, said the
mistakes were of a minor nature.
"It is very difficult for even
a French Canadian to learn the
rules for breaking words at
the end of a line.
"If this is the only type of
mistake in the French text in
the magazine you people deserve much credit."
Fregault said he would not
be insulted if he received a
copy of the magazine in his
office.
"I would probably write you

GUY FREGAULT
. . . he's happy
By MIKE VAUX
A funny thing happened to
me on the way to lunch Wednesday.
I ate eight hamburgers,
eight pieces of pie, eight
salads, eight orders of french
fries and drank 14 cups of
coffee—all in the cause of
The Ubyssey.
•    •    •
My city editor asked me to
compare food prices at UBC
with off-campus establishments.
Conclusion: the food prices
at UBC are less but the service is worse and the portions
are smaller.
Off- campus restaurants
charge slightly more per por
tion than food-service cafeterias but the extras make a
big difference.
Little things like the glass
of water provided by outside
restaurants, that extra cup of
coffee, that shaker of salt.
•    •    •
Hamburgers are juicier on
the whole. The salads have
more oomph, the waitresses
make a big effort to clean the
table before you sit down,
the chips are hotter and the
coffee is coffee.
At the bus stop cafe and
the new commissary I was refused a second cup of coffee.
But   outside   most   places
were willing to give me the
coffee.
A typical student lunch—
hamburger, chips, side salad,
pie and coffee costs, on the
average, 96 cents off campus.
The same meal on campus
is 85 cents but the portions
are smaller.
And that second cup of col-
fee cost me 10 cents more at
UBC.
•    •    •
Off- campus restaurants
were generally more comfortable.
The restaurants I visited
were all between Alma and
the university gates.
But I won't do that again.
Never again.  (Burp).

Quebec gets
more but it's
not enough
Quebec supports its artists
better than any other provincial government but it's not
enough.
Quebec deputy minister of
cultural affairs Guy Fregault
told a Brock audience Wednesday his government will never
be able to keep up with the demand for subsidization of
French Canadian arts.
He said the arts have mushroomed in Quebec in the past
decade necessitating the establishment of a Quebec ministry
of cultural affairs.
Fregault said the Quebec
government believes the responsibility of the state towards
its artists doesn't stop at just
footing the bill.
"The role of the state is to
make the artist feel that what
he does is important to the
general spiritual and social
welfare of the community," he
said.
He said there has been a
tremendous interest in the
Quebec theatre in the last 10
years.
Fregault said the theatre has
become an industry in Quebec.

New grad class executive
elected by faculty reps
Most final year students
don't know it, but they elected
a grad class executive Tuesday.
Two grad class reps from
each faculty, plus four other
students elected the executive.
The meeting was opened and
any graduating student could
nominate  candidates or stand
for election, said Science president Chuck Rennie, in charge
of the meeting.
But there were no notices
on boards or ads placed in The
Ubyssey to tell students about
the meeting he said.
"I felt the elections should
be left up to the faculty representatives."

a letter of congratulations," he
said.
Bourgault, one of Quebec's
leading separatists said the
"errors" were of a minor
nature.
"The text is well written.
These "errors" were made by
the type setters and they are
nothing.
"I can pick up a copy of La
Presse, (one of French Canada's leading newspapers,) and
find you at least 1,000 errors in
every edition.
"Some people complain
about anything.
"If this is the only type
of error in the French, my hat
is off to you."
Campus Canada is a bilingual publication produced
by the UBC Alma Mater
Society for the Canadian
Union of Students.
Approximately one third of
the text is in French. Six hundred of the 10,000 printed
have been ordered by the
Quebec universities.
The AMS is currently underwriting the cost of the magazine and has spent almost
$2,500 on the production of the
first two issues.
This deficit is expected to be
made up on the next two issues.
The magazine is now on sale
at UBC.
They're picketing  a  Seattle
insurance     company    which
plans to build a huge 80 by 96
foot  neon   sign   outside
residence windows.
Officials of the insurance
company boast that the sign
will be visible for four miles.
It will contain 360 reflector
lights and a half mile of neon
tubing.
The demonstrators, many
dressed in pyjamas, carried
signs and thrust mimeographed
messages into the windows of
passing cars.
"They have a sign now that's
bad enough," said one of the
demonstrators.
"Even this one goes through

The new sign which will be

Coast will be twice the size of

"This is the way it was
done last year," Rennie said.
"In previous years the grad
class hasn't shown much interest in these elections."
Rennie was appointed by
council to conduct the meeting.
The faculty representatives
were nominated by faculty
presidents or in some cases
elected by the under-graduate
society  councils,  he said.
Tom Skupa, engineering
student, was elected president,
defeating Ted Conover, Commerce, and John McFaul, Agriculture.
Law student Robert Gillespie was elected vice-president;
Lynn Francis, Nursing, was
elected secretary; and Bob
Hohert, Commerce, treasurer.
All were elected by acclamation.
The grad class executive decides on the grad class gift
and organizes other grad functions.
Last year, it spent about
$11,300, which was collected
from a $7 fee levied on all
final year students.

Ron
QUIXOTE
The smashing earlier this
week on campus of several
statues is, I agree, criminal
and quite deplorable.
Most of the deplorers, however, seem to have missed the
main point: It's also ironic as
hell.
That a collection of rock
and concrete valued at some
four grand should be damaged by vandals is a senseless
waste of good devalued
money.
• •    •
But following within a
week of an equally senseless
waste of $1,500, the former
instance of ignorance is reduced in tragic and outraged-
cries-of-book-burning value to
a mere $2,500.
The wasted $1,500 was, of
course, spent by the Brock
art committee on a chunk of
avant-garde wall paper created (please note the thin line
between creation and abortion) by a New York artist,
William Ronald.
Using addition instead of
subtraction, the total waste of
cash will amount to five-
point-five thou., which is a
crying shame at a university
being strangled for funds
from other grinning sources.
• •    •
According   to  art   authorities on   campus,   the  statues
are   insured   against   vandalism.
But are we — you and I,
Jane and Joe college—insured against stupidity on the
part of those spending our
money under ithe guise of
broadening our artistic horizons?
Not bloody likely.
Lloyds of London wouldn't
touch anything concerning
the intelligence of those
whom we elect (or dis-elect,
considering the apathy towards student government)
or that of their appointed,
ever-growing and incestuous
committees.
So there goes another
$1,500 of our money, for a
piece of interior anti-decorating with which even the engineers are offended to be
connected.
• •    •
The engineers' excellent
statue hoax at start of the
term has laid open to doubt
the validity of anything nonfunctional hanging around on
campus (except Sahib Ouvre's
elite corps of frustrated corporals—NOBODY can claim
they have any relevance to
anything, least of all art).
Brock's "SUN," however,
is alleged to be authentic. A
receipt for $1,500 substantiates said authenticity.
Personally, this cowboy
couldn't care less WHAT they
hang in Brock Hall (up to and
including student council)—
be it authentic or not.
But if authenticity in the
form of garbage indistinguishable from hoax comes at
$1,500 an item, let us by all
means have the hoax—-it's a
far cry cheaper.

Vandalism
will scare
exhibitors
UBC's statue-smashing vandals will scare other artists
away from the campus, professor Ian McNairn of the Fine
Arts department said Wednesday.
"The action will make artists
hesitant to exhibit their works
on campus in the future," he
said.
"Although the figures were
covered by a university policy,
the creation of a man is impossible to replace."
He said the vandalism could
affect the reputation of UBC
as being broad-minded and concerned with art.
RCMP and UBC security
patrolmen are still looking for
the vandals who smashed three
of the statues dotted around
the campus. They did $2,000
worth of damage.
Student Discipline Committee has not been asked to aid
in the search.
One of the statues, Miner,
has been put back on its base
in the Buchanan quad, but
large chunks of concrete from
the miner's chest are still lying
on the ground.
"UBC's five per cent clod
element has struck again," said
Arts president Mike Coleman.
"Whether or not one appreciates the aesthetic qualities of
the statues in question, it is
unbelievable that people would
takte :it upon tihemselves to
destroy university property."
For student council
An itereshting shupper,
boy oh boy, it shure wash
By  TOM  WAYMAN
Ubysey Council Reporter
Being a student councillor
isn't (hie) all hard work.
No shur!
Monday night, council retired to the Graduate Student
centre for a free-rye cocktail
party in honor of the Quebec
university students here for
French Canada Week.
Council broke for supper at
5:45 p.m."with the intention
of re-assembling again at 8
p.m.
At 8:47 p.m., AMS first
vice-president Jim Ward
called the meeting to order
with about a dozen councillors
present.
At 8:49 p.m., AMS president Malcolm Scott arrived
and resumed the chair with a
cheery: "Ah, monsieurs et
mesdames."
At 9:02 p.m., an hour late,
AMS co-ordinator Ken Leitch
stumbled coming through the
doors into council.
And at 9:25 p.m., AMS
treasurer Chris Hansen, agri
cultural undergraduate society president Doug Blair,
and medical president Hamish
Redford returned.
Redford was subsequently
seen furtively consuming a
dark brown beverage from a
glass.
But The Ubyssey was unable to obtain a specimen of
the liquid for chemical analysis, because Redford drank it
all.
At   11:26   p.m.,   after   the
coffee break, Scott quieted
the returning councillors with
an enthusiastic cry of:
"Let's go, let's go, let's
really go!"
He accompanied this with
a happy pounding of the table
with his hand.
Two councillors, Education
president George Boechler,
and Graduate Student president Gus Shurvell, host for
the cocktail party, never did
return to council.

Crying wolf
Just down the street from where we live, there is a
large, green box which belongs to the federal post office
department.
It is just like every green post box you see on the
ordinary street-corner, except this one has "F.L.B.C."
scrawled on the side in big, yellow letters. The inscription, of course, is a take-off on the FLQ, one of our many
misunderstood French-Canadian minorities.
We think the obviously flippant manner in which the
inscription was written is all too indicative of a complacent disregard on the part of B.C. citizens for the
rumblings of dissatisfaction in Quebec—rumblings which
could quite quickly split the country in two.
We think it's unfortunate, too, that more UBC
students haven't taken advantage of the opportunity to
inform themselves of the bicultural problem by attending the excellent series of lectures and discussions put
on by student council for French. Canada Week.
The French-Canadians have been mistreated, and
greatly misunderstood by the rest of Canada.
But we'd like to protest a bit on behalf of the English
—who right in the midst of this Quebec renaissance are
being mistreated and misunderstood themselves.
A good example is the Campus Canada squawk,
detailed on page one. When the French officials in the
East received their copy, they immediately set out to find
all the errors they could in the magazine.
Before reading more than a smattering of the maga-
sine, they were on the phone to Vancouver, demanding
that such an insulting publication not be distributed in
Quebec.
The magazine was commended, however, by the
Quebec minister of culture, an arch-separatist, and the
head of UBC's Romance Studies department.
Having suffered through this incident, we begin to
wonder about the veracity of Quebec's claims against
Donald Gordon, for instance.
Hypersensitivity in a minority group irritates us.
But we can become downright angry when such a
group lays back, waiting for an opportunity to scream
' 'mistreatment."
Pinch the punks
We can go along with a good stunt, or a campus joke,
even if it is a bit sick. The students, and, for the most
part, the administration, go along with these seasonal
outbursts of college madness, too.
But occasionally, we feel moved to get up there in
the pulpit, beside those perennially-outraged members
of the downtown public, and start preaching.
We don't think there's any room in this university
for the clods who insist on taking their little stunts beyond that tender point of tolerance.
Like the slobs who broke up the homecoming football game with their beer-slinging, brawling arrogance.
Throw the book at 'em, we say.
Worse, there are the bums like those who, last weekend, maliciously mutilated $4,000 worth of sculpture in
the Buchanan plaza.
We had a case like tihat a couple of years ago—a
similar bunch thought it would be smart to slash up the
paintings in the Brock link, and smear them with
ketchup.
We find it hard to understand the mentality which
would do this kind of thing. We don't like the paintings,
either. But we thought the black-jacket, duck-cut hero
image was left behind in the high schools.
We doubt whether this behavior can be ascribed to
alcoholic obliteration of an otherwise rational mind.
People who smash legitimate sculpture, smear paint-,
ings, disrupt organized events with hoodlum tactics are,
just plain stupid.
In which case they shouldn't be at university. We
say throw the punks out on their heads, if they've got any.
I don't wanna hurt your feelings or anything—but you've
strayed into the GREEK side of Brock caf.

Give Open House visitors
the mimeographed facts
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In your issue of Oct. 24,
Roger McAfee took an excellent stand on forthcoming
Open House, and the possible
effects on the Alums and public at large. Recently I have
heard so many people remark
that they can't understand
what UBC students want, or
have to complain about, "as
I was overwhelmed when I
saw all the new buildings. I
couldn't   believe   my   eyes!"
As Davie Fulton commented, Mr. Bennett, like the late
Musselinin, builds things the
people can see, 'and so keeps
a lot of them happy. They
don't see what is covered up
or left undone.
•    •    •
In any event, Mr. McAfee
is right, and without a real
campaign, Open House may
have an adverse effect on the
public when it comes to support. This campaign must be
planned now.
My suggestion is that every
visitor to the campus be given a mimeographed brochure.
Most will see only the physical campus, and so not realize
the true problems of the University.
On page one, each building
erected since the present
building campaign started
(1951) should be listed with
its cost. Beside each should
be shown the break down of
who really paid for each building, such as "Canada Council;" or "Paid by student
money only;" or "$500,000
paid by Provincial Government and $500,000 by public
subscription." If this is done,
the   visitors  will   realize  the
puny contribution by the government.
*    •    •
Next page should tell the
real problems of UBC. It is
not mainly buildings or salary level, BUT lack of money
for adequate equipment and
for sufficient staff. Present
staff in most instances carries
twice the work load of similar faculty members at other
institutions and so has no
time for research, and if they
had the time there is no
money for necessary equipment. Faculty must be increased by at least 40 per
cent not taking into consideration any increase in student body.
Faculty then would have a
reasonable time for research.
Page three could contain
three tables; (1) The contributions of each provincial
government to their universities per student; (2). The
contributions as a percentage
of the total annual spending
of the provincial governments; and (3) Expenditures
per head of population by the
provincial government in
each province. B.C. is at the
bottom except for Nova Scotia and New Brunswick,
whose development took
place years ago, and whose
populations are fairly static.
•    •    •
I firmly believe if the plan
outlined above is followed the
Open House can be used as a
follow-up of the "Back Mac"
Campaign in a way the public can see and understand.
If nothing is done, Mr. Bennett will be aided and abetted
by Open House, as Mr. McAfee pointed out.
This is your prime opportunity, students, to turn Open
House to your advantage and
the advantage of students to
come in future years. Don't
miss out. Act NOW.

New 'work
in shadow
ot Sun
Sun has company.
But it's not supposed to.
The controversial painting,
Sun, is sharing its place of
honor in the Brock Link with
a new painting, called Inauguration I, by Robert Cor-
bin. The painting is a kaleidoscope of color and pandemonium.
When first contacted about
the new work, Professor Ian
McNairn of the Fine Arts
Department said he had not
seen the painting but added:
"It's not supposed to be
there."
"We have added no new
paintings to the Brock collection since "Sun", said Ken
Leitch, AMS Co-ordinator of
Activities.
Two interpretations of the
painting hang beside it. They
look like parodies of other
critiques put up beside
"Sun".
One analysis, by Pat Bride,
says the painting "instills an
intrinsic feeling of motion".
He described it as a "superb
masterpiece", and said "one
achieves a sense of peace and
relaxation from looking at it
— that far surpasses normal
tranquility".
Alvin Balkind, curator of
the Fine Arts Gallery, refused
to talk to The Ubyssey for
publication about the painting.
"I'm completely disillusioned with the reporting of that
sensational newspaper," he
said.
Some students believe the
new "work of art" is a fake.
Council told
Frosh program
in sad shape'
The Frosh Orientation program is in trouble.
In a report received by coun-'
cil Monday, Frosh Orientation
Committee chairman Gordon
Galbrajith said attendance at
Frosh orientation functions is
declining.
"It is clear the Alma
Mater Society must take a new
approach to Freshman orientation," he said.
In 1961, 1,800 students attended the Frosh Reception
dance, but this year only 1,000
did, he said.
Up to 1961, there were always more applicants for Frosh
Retreat than there was space,
but for the past two years the
committee had to work to find
enough students for the retreat.
The Big Block smoker had to
be dropped because of lack of
interest, and attendance at the
Big and Little Sister Banquet
has declined, he said.
The Frosh pep meet, held
for the first time this year,
was also very poorly attended.
Gaibraith said the situation
is a result of poor publicity
and changing attitudes towards
university education.
He accused Buildings and
Grounds of "taking utterly unreasonable attitudes towards
student publicity."
Gaibraith said the present
location of Frosh retreat should
he changed. "Camp Elphinstone is becoming increasingly
unsuitable as a site," he said.
"Its proximity to  a settled
area and the consequent difficulty of maintaining as close
control as desirable is a major
problem."
"Frosh Reception needs drastic reorganization," he said.
The whole concept should be
revised, either by raising ticket
prices and providing better
entertainment, or by scrapping
the dance altogether, said Gaibraith.
He said drastic steps should
be taken to improve the program.
The AMS should develop a
counselling program for new
students, he said with senior
students, he said, with senior
programs with frosh in interviews, lectures and discussions.
"One of the most obvious
failings of the administration is
in the area of course counselling and orientation," he said.
He also suggested a mass indoctrination program for Frosh
in  registration week.

W students apply
Arts grads shy
away from jobs
UBC's placement office wants arts students.
M. E. Hacking, placement
officer, says dozens of firms
want to offer jobs to arts grads
but few come forward.
He said only ten students
have filled out application
forms with his office so far
this year.
Last year only 85 arts grads
applied for jobs through the
UBC placement office.
He said 15 of these went on
into graduate work, 23 lost interest, 23 were hired and 21
were left unemployed.
Since then only 13 remained
unemployed and this is due to
low marks or an aversion to
work, he said.
Hacking said there are
plenty of jobs available in the
merchandizing field.
Large manufacturing concerns, business offices, and department stores are particularly eager for arts grads.
Several chartered banks
want men for their managerial
programs; salaries average
$400 a month.
Women can make $300 or
more a month working for department stores in their training programs.
Advantageous B.A. majors
are psychology, sociology, history, English, math, economics,
and political science, he said,
but marks are more important.
Grads with 50-55 per cent
averages will have trouble getting good jobs, said Hacking.
Nearly 100 per cent of the
graduates in such fields as applied science, agriculture, commerce, science, and forestry
get their jobs through UBC
placement. There is no trouble

'Cabins furnished'
with cafeteria cutlery
SEPARATIST editor Pierre
Bourgault speaks in Auditorium today at 12:30.
By   AL   BIRNIE
Students steal and break
$9,000 worth of dishes and
cutlery from UBC cafeteria
each year.
But Ruth Blair, Food Services head, said this was normal operating expenses for a
cafeteria complex of this size.
"Cups, glasses and teapots
are the most common things to
go. That is why we stopped
serving tea in pots," she said.
"Many cabins on Grouse
Mountain most likely have
things in them we would recognize."
She pointed out, however,
that the $9,000 total included
breakage as well as loss. Most
students use the cafeteria honestly, she said.
"Only certain types of students get pleasure out of taking things from restaurants."
The $9,000 is taken into account in the food prices, she
said.

And Bold Stripes Take Over
The sharp decisiveness of bold stripes is taking
over the men's shirt business. This was a natural
move once tab collar became established. Coordinating ties with these shirts will be no problem if small, neat underknot patterns and broad
stripes are worn. At right, a snap tab in charcoal
stripe on white.
One of the most fashionable combinations in
shirts is the high collar shown in a bold stripe
pattern. A very wide choice of collar styles are
offered in these higher collars including the
medium spread shown at right.
For the man who feels that the bold stripes are
a bit too decisive, the narrow multi-colored stripe
is just right. At right, an Oxford cloth small point
button-down sampled in a blue and grey stripe.
This pattern is easier to co-ordinate with a patterned suit. With the bolder stripes, tweeds and
plains are recommended as suitable.

MULLEN'S
EYE VIEW
OF BIRDS
By DAN MULLEN
A short time ago this section printed an article which
belittled the efforts of UBC
cheerleaders to evoke enthusiasm from crowds at football
games.
It contrasted their failure
with the success of two student councillors in stirring up
the UBC rooters. It suggested
that since T-bird spectators
responded better to unofficial
leaders, the girls in the short
skirts may as well get lost.
• •    •
Reaction   followed.    There
were several indignant letters-
to-the-editor. The Booster
Club, with which the cheerleaders are affiliated, sent
the story's author an invitation to attend a cheer practice. They sent me one, too.
I saw a group of girls who
are willing to work hard to
perfect cheerleading routines,
a group who want nothing
more than to channel the obvious enthusiasm (the current
term is "exuberance") of UBC
fans into orderly support for
the school's  athletic  teams.
How do they feel when
there is little or no response
from a packed grandstand?
• •    •
"We try to do better," says
one, "but it's hard with no
support."
What's in it for them? One
of the girls said that her reward "would be knowing the
crowd was with us in backing the team."
A recent survey by the
Booster Club indicated that
students favored more involved routines over mere 'yell'
leading. Accordingly, the
girls began learning a series
of somewhat intricate maneuvers, only to be criticized
for "mutilating" their "fancy
routines."
• •    •
As if student apathy and
disparagement were not obstacle enough, the cheerleaders face some unique problems.
During the University of
Alberta-UBC game two weeks
ago, one of the girls became
the center of a brawl when
several men tried to kidnap
her.
It was expected that she
would quit as a result. But she
was at the practice, concentrating on smoothing out some
dance steps.
Her return illustrates the
quality shared by all the
cheerleaders, the private conviction that sends them out
in front of a crowd of students who feel too sophisticated to support intercollegiate athletics or anything else
that requires them to submerge their haughty individualism.
Those who urge the cheerleaders to give up because
there is no spirit show only
that they cannot recognize
that spirit when it appears
in others.
If there is ever to be at
UBC a school spirit proportionate to the size of the University, there must be a hard
core of sincere, dedicated students upon which to build.
Groups like the cheerleaders
can form this basis.

CUSO — Canadian University Service Overseas.
CUSO is a national organization sending people to work in
under-developed countries of
Africa, Asia and South America.
It sends university graduates, mainly teachers, doctors,
engineers, a g r i c u lturalists,
nurses and foresters, to these
countries at the request of the
sponsoring government.
The organization came into
existence in June, 1961, shortly after the formation of the
U.S. Peace Corps.
Thousands of Canadians had
applied to the American group,
but were rejected' as the Peace
Corps accepts only American
citizens.
Clearly, a service to match
the people and the countries
was needed.
A United Nations Regional
Training Centre was on the
UBC campus at that time.
This provided the basis for the
new organization—CUSO.
The campus organization is
now divided into three parts—
a Senate committee headed by
John Wood of the Extension
Department, a student committee with Diane Greenall as president, and a downtown fund-

As long as we enjoy
liberty of thought and

Atheists and Believers in
God will continue to

thought-provoking, but
the argument is bound to

would  like to suggest
that the believers allow
their opponents to languish
harmlessly in their philosophies, while turning
their full wrath and

exploit their belief to its
