The National Students' Day
march to the Bayshore was
killed '>y Student Council
Tuesday night.
In its place council okayed
a small delegation of AMS
officials to represent the student body.
Council defeated the march
idea in discussing final proposals for Student Day, Oct.
The Education Action Pro-
Cram committee had suggested a mass academic procession to the Bayshore meeting
of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada,
to emphasize student concern
about higher education.
The march was most violently objected to by forestry
president Dave Parker, who
said his faculty would  sup
port no march of any kind.
Councillors appeared to be
against the march because
they felt there was too great
an opportunity for adverse
press coverage.
EAP co-chairman Bob
Cruise predicted council's
move would result in action
from other sources.
"Student council will soon
be by-passed by other organizations on campus and this
does not just mean the
weirdie-beardies," he said.
"Students will march because of their disillusionment
over a council that cannot act
in a positive direction.
"Activities of the new left
will attract support because of
the failure of council to give
expression in an effective
manner to their point of
. . . concerned
"I don't think we will see
the riots Berkeley saw, however.
"We will see radical groups
attempting to persuade students to follow them, instead
of the bureaucratic student
government," Cruise said.
At a meeting Sunday the
EAP committee passed a motion that the fees return to
the 1964-65 level for he
1966-67 school year.
This motion, adopted by
council Tuesday night, also
called on the Board of Governors to adopt a policy of reduction of fees.
The EAP committee passed
a recommendation to student
council that there be a rally
on campus prior to the march
to the Bayshore Inn on National! Student Day. .
The motion stipulated that
the "academic march to the
Bayshore consist of an orderly, silent procession".
Marchers would carry banners with the slogan of "We
are concerned" printed on
At the Bayshore, the motion read, the students
should seek a hearing with
the AUCC.
Council, however, eliminated the march Tuesday night,
replacing it with a token procession made up of the student council, five representatives from each undergraduate society, from Victoria College, SFA, and the B.C. Institute of Technology, five local
Canadian Union Students'
representatives, five faculty
representatives, plus the student president from local
high schools.

11 students
saved by
A UBC patrolman has been credited with saving the
lives of 11 students from fire at a campus fraternity house
Sunday morning.
Dave Hannah  noticed  the
blaze at 7:30 a.m. in the Psi
Upsilon     fraternity     house,
2260   Wesbrook  Crescent,
while on his regular patrol.
He alerted the university
fire department and wakened
the house residents.
Resident Ted Beaubier,
Arts III, commended Hannah
for his prompt action.
Beaubier and one other resident were forced to climb
through a window to get out
because of the intense heat
in the hallway.
The other residents were
able to escape through the
main floor fire exit.
Damage to the house was
estimated at $10,000.
Psi Upsilon president, Bill
Armitage, said the blaze was
restricted to the living room
of the house.
The fire took'half an hour
to control.
Beaubier said it is believed
that the blaze was started by
a cigarette smoldering on a
living room sofa.
A tape recorder and an amplifier, both privately owned,
were destroyed.
Beaubier said there had
been a party at the house following the Frosh Reception
Saturday night.
The party ended about 3:30
Sunday morning.
Repairs will begin immediately and should be finished
in about six weeks.
The loss was covered completely by insurance.
Our Mac
still wants
your fees
OTTAWA (CUP)—University presidents across
Canada have welcomed
the Bladen Report's recommendations for a
massive increase in federal government spending on education.
UBC's Dr. John Macdonald was the only university president interviewed who said that re-
. tention of fees was realistic.
Claude Bissell of the
University of Toronto
criticized the proposal
that fees continue at the
present level, saying he
would have "no objection
to the elimination of
fees, gradual or immediate" if additional grants
could be provided.
"Perhaps the most important single thing
about the report is that
it makes absolutely clear
that higher education is
one of the two or three
most vital issues in Canada," said Thomas Sy-
mons, president of Trent
Many presidents were
especially pleased that
the report calls on Ottawa to increase its responsibility for higher education.
University of Saskatchewan president, J. W.
T. Spinks, said, 'Federal
government actions to
date have not shown
awareness that the economic life of Canada depends on the quality of
higher education." Page 2

Teach-in tabbed
Organizers have labelled the response to UBC's weekend
teach-in as disappointing. 	
VOC crushes
Small audiences and too
many leftwingers were their
major complaints.
Prof. W. E. Willmott, secretary of the planning committee, said faculty members had
not lived up to expectations.
"We had some 120 faculty
sponsors, but very few attended."
Attendance ranged from a
peak of 500 to hear Linus Pauling Friday night to some 25
who turned out early Sunday
for a sleepy morning session.
Both Willmott and Ray Larsen, a student organizer, said
the lack of rightist opinion was
Most of the students attended expressed left-wing or anti-
American views.
Willmott said the committee
had "worked very hard to
make sure the panels would
not represent just one view;
we assumed this would ensure
a balanced presentation."
However, he said, "Most of
the student panelists were
there to preach, not to learn."
"It began as a faculty committee in the summer when
there were no students around.
It was unfortunate that more
students were not brought into
The response was in marked
contrast to the teach-in at the
University of Toronto.
The Viet Nam debate in Toronto attracted 6,000 persons;
other  events  averaged  2,500.
Budget for the B.C. teach-in
was $700, collected from faculty sponsors and students who
attended. By Sunday, organizers were still short $150.
The teach-in began Friday
night with conflict, followed
by a tape of a speech delivered
earlier by Dr. Linus Pauling
a the PNE Garden Auditorium
Pauling, two-time Nobel
prize winner, called for a halt
to the war in Viet Nam, which
he termed unconstitutional.
Pauling answered questions
at Brock following his speech
downtown. He told one UBC
student he would be willing to
sign a petition for U.S. president Lyndon Johnson's impeachment because of the war.
Saturday's program included
a tape-in from Toronto on Viet
Nam, with representatives
from the Saigon government,
the Cambodian government,
and the U.S. state department;
and an American journalist
just returned from the country.
Robert Scheer, Berkeley professor and writer for the magazine The Realist, was the 'day's
most popular panelist.
Scheer spoke about a planned protest Berkeley students
will hold at the Oakland army
terminal later this month. The
group has been warned it is
breaking the 1917 Espionage
Act against demoralizing troops by so doing.
"The U.S. attorney-general
said he wasn't so upset by what
we were going to say as by
where we were going to say it.
He suggested we go somewhere
else—like a hall,"

Political heads

" OTTAWA (CUP) — While endorsing the general aims
of the Bladen Commission's report on Financing of Higher
Education, political leaders have expressed doubts about
aspects of its recommendations.
Prime Minister Pearson said

War in Viet Nam is planning

the additional federal aid
"must not interfere with the
prime responsibility and constitutional jurisdiction of the
provinces in this field."
He has not yet commented
on the Report's proposal to
make one federal minister responsible for higher education.
Conservative leader John
Diefenbaker had previously
come out in favor of raises in
federal grants to universities
on the scale of those recommended in the Bladen report,
and has indicated his desire to
reduce tuition fees.
He has also called for a federal ministry of Youth, but has
not yet spelled out its functions.
New Democratic leader T. C.
Douglas, in addition to calling
for the abolition of tuition fees,
criticized the per capita grants
system in a speech in Osawa
Oct. 6.
"This system has greatly increased the disparity between
the educational systems of the
have and the have-not provinces," Mr. Douglas commented, adding that funds should
be provided on the basis of
each province's need.
Douglas said that an NDP
government would make
enough available, through
grants or tax abatements, that
a province could provide free
higher education if it wished.
He told newsmen he could
not say what such a plan would
cost,  but his research depart
ment in Ottawa estimated that
the additional expense on top
of other Bladen recommendations would not be more than
$30 million next year.
Premier Duff Roblin of Manitoba objected -to the reports

minister of education which,
he said, "would unnecessarily
complicate the constitutional

time and time again, asking us
to wait for this report. Now it

WEDNESDAY, OCT.  13,  1965
"The tigers ot wrath are wiser than the horses
of instruction." -Wm. Blake.
The American novelist Herman Melville, in his classic
Moby Dick, includes a passage of particular application
to university students now that National Student Day,
Oct. 27, is only two weeks away.
Melville relates how a huge herd of whales, stretching two miles across, flees from three boatloads of
whalers. Suddenly, the Leviatihans — who could turn in
a moment and crush their pursuers — begin to circle in
Round and round they go, crossing over and under
each other in aimless panicky movements giving their
hunters time to close in.
And Melville might have applied the situation to
UBC's AMS council.
Since the beginning of September, councillors have
fled before the fee-raise question. While galloping across
the plain of fear, they have remained true to the herd
instinct by trying to get as far away as they could from
being forced to take some stand.
Needless to say, all it would take would be a general
digging-in of hoofs, an abrupt about face, and the whole
question would have vanished as 12,000 members of the
herd, massed behind their leaders, pounded the problem
out of existence.
This is what a few of the activist leaders on council
have tried to do. They have tried to stop, to take a look
behind at what is really chasing the fleeing herd. But the
horns behind are on frantic heads, and all the activist
leaders have managed to do is angle the herd into a
So, this last week, it has been going round and round
in aimless panic.
The circling is obvious in every Education Action
Program committee suggestion brought to council for
Take for example the Oct. 27 march.
As set forward by the EAP group, this would involve
a restrained, orderly, academic procession of a large
number of UBC, Simon Fraser Academy, Victoria College, and senior high school students.
They would march under banners with the legend
"We're concerned", signifying their awareness of the
complex problems of higher education, and their awareness that the time has come to express this concern.
No bricks, no "fight the fees" chants, no "sack Mac"
buttons, just a simple, namby-pamby, restrained, orderly demonstration. Followed by an address at the Bay-
shore by a wheel of some description,
All for publicity: to let people know where students
But my God, how this appears to the wildly circling
leaders of the circling herd:
"Too radical!" "Too impulsive!" "Not enough control!" "What would a) the police, b) the adrninistration,
c) the public, d) mother say?"
As if the university students of this province were
not mature enough to carry out a restrained, orderly
manifestation of their concern for a situation vital to the
future of their province and nation.
P.S. Oops . . . they obviously aren't. Even this
demonstration was too strong for Council.

Vice ain't nice, Danny finds
An invidious attempt was
made recently to infiltrate the
Vancouver city police vice
squad but thanks to swift action by squad chief, Sgt. Seth
Snigger, the plot was uncovered and right was triumphant.
We are pleased to be able
to release the first report of
the hushed-up incident as related by our correspondent at
police headquarters.
Sgt. Snigger, he reports,
was sitting at a table covered
with 5,000 lurid books seized
last week by the vice squad's
anti-pornography squad. The
officer was just delving into
the evidence when in x walked

"Jeez, Smith, these books
are so filthy," said the officer,
always ready for an intelligent discussion. "Say, what's
this I hear about you criticizing the filth raids?"
"Sergeant, I do not believe
the police should set itself up
as a censor of literature," remarked Smith.
"Smith you shnook," erupted our hero, scratching his
underarms furiously.
"We ain't trying to censor
"We're only seizing dirty
books. I suppose you think
THIS is literature," and the
brave officer threw a copy of
Candy at the little weasel.
"Actually, Sgt., that book
did receive a very favorable
reyiew  in Life magazine."
"Life, eh? Thanks Smith.
We'll seize it tomorrow before the PTA complains."
"Candy is a brilliant satire,
Sgt.," said the little pinko.
"Satire? What the hell's
satire, Smith? Some kind of
perversion? You know I've
always wondered about you,
Ernest baby."
The officer moved his chair
toward the little man, peering
intently. "Tell me about your
sex life^ Ernie boy."
"My sex life is not your
business Sgt."
"I'm on the vice squad,
Smith. Everybody's sex life
is my business."
"I have completely normal
relations with my girl friend.
Sgt.," said Smith with anger.
"Why you filthy pervert!"
screamed Sgt. Snigger, plunging his hand violently through
the fly of his own pants ps if
by reflex. "Normal relations
with an unmarried girl! Boy,
what vice!"
The little clerk tried to
change the subject. "I'll admit
most of these books are pornography, Sgt. But are you
aware that psychologists tell
us pornography acts as a release for people with sex problems, rather than a stimulant.
In fact studies show that
the more pornography is
available the fewer sex crimes
are committed."
"Fewer   sex   crimes!   You
trying to put us out of work.
Smith?   You   preenographic
preevert, beat it before I sic

Ernest Smith ran from the
room, weaved his way down
the corridor through a crowd
of drunks and suspected libra-
ians, and out onto Main

UBC's research forest:
10,000 mismanaged acres
For those of us who are less
well in formed, UBC owns and
operates a research forest of
some 10,000 acres in the
vicinity of Haney. This forest
is your property and you
should gain some benefits
from its existence.
Basically, the purposes of
the forest are demonstration,
education, recreation and research.     However,   there   are
grave doubts in the minds of
some as to the actual role of
the forest.
An examination of the past
history of the forest reveals:
• In 1943 the provincial
government leased the forest
to UBC for a period of 21
• The forest was crown-
granted to the university in

Deans message
Great developments are presently underway or in
the planning stage in our forest-based industries.
The increased wood requirements, together with
the sustained yield policy, are making necessary more
intensive forest management than ever before in British
New standards of forest utilization are being adopted.
Waste is being reduced greatly by new methods and
technical advances.
New forest areas are being harvested and species
previously little used are coming into large scale use.
Efficient techniques for
harvesting and using small
logs are being developed.
Methods of improving regeneration and growth of
the forest are being explored
by both industry and government.
In short, there is an
exciting atmosphere of
change for the better in our
most important industry.
It  brings   with   it   new
requirements and challenges
for our graduates, who now
more than ever before, will

To ensure that the changing requirements are met
as nearly as possible, the Forestry courses and curriculum are being subjected to a searching and critical examination with the intention of introducing any improvements that may be indicated as soon as possible. The active
and thoughtful assistance of Forestry students in this study
is much appreciaed.
Meanwhile, the new building has been commenced

something that is readily done.

"They should leave to industry most of the task of
demonstrating the profitability of forest land management
and should concern themselves with the important task
of obtaining growth, reproduction and other information."
A brief examination of the
operations at the UBC's research forest indicates that it
has been mismanaged from a
research point of view.
• •     •
This area could have, and
still can, make a very worthwhile contribution to the
university — provided that its
primary function is research.
Before I examine the operations at the research forest,
let me quote part of a speech
made in 1954 by Dr. H. R.
MacMillan regarding the research forest:
". . . this, the first Certified
Tree Farm in British Columbia, will probably prove to be
the most influential 10,000
acres in the province."
Unfortunately, this has not
proved to be the case. But
should more emphasis be put
on research, this area could
indeed become the most influential forest in the province.

One may well ask why tne
forest hasn't made a more
sizeable contribution in the
past. The repiy could be-
There are no definitions as
to the use of the forest The objectives of the forest—demonstration, education recreation
and research—are fine sounding words, but meaningless
unless implemented.
Demonstration, which means
"to  describe  and  explain  by
means   of   specimens   and   experiments"   is   fine   provided
that   it   demonstrates   correct
The forest can demonstrate
all sorts of things, including:
• How not to build a road.
There exists, on the forest, a
road which one can drive up
but not down;
• How not to build a
• How to erode soil down to
bedrock. It is very easy to
destroy soil, but a different
matter to recreate it;
• How to overcut an area
of forest land. Here a short
explanation is required.
• •    •
It has been calculated that
if the forest is to produce timber in perpetuity, the annual
cut must not exceed 4.5 million cubic feet; if it does then
the forest is being overcut.
In the past, the research
forest has been overcut, and
at times the cut has exceeded
10 million cubic feet per annum. Some of this overcut
was necessitated by windfall
damage, but not enough to
justify the amount of the

Next on the list is education. One does not usually

method of tackling a problem
and then explain the right
Apparently, this is what is
done at the UBC forest.
Surely, here is an unequalled
opportunity to demonstrate
the correct method of tackling
a problem.
Take, for example, road
construction. If one wishes to
see a poor, or moderately well
laid out and constructed road
one has only to visit an industrial logging operation.
Why must one see poor
roads on a research forest?
Here is an opportunity to see
roads laid out to text book
specificatioins, but too few
such roads exist.
• •     •
The recreation facilities at
the forest are negligible compared to those of the provincial and national parks. Better to let the parks cater to
recreation, a research forest,
is not the place.
What is the use of setting
up time-consuming and costly
experiments if there is a very
real danger of the.project being spoiled by a well-meaning
but uninformed public?
The final, and most important, objective of a research
forest is research. Not just
limited research, from a forestry viewpoint, but a broader
concept involving other disciplines.
• •    •
The prevalent feeling, at
least among students, is that
the research forest belongs to
the Faculty of Forestry, and
that they are the only ones
who can use it. This is nonsense!
Forestry is directly related
to zoologly, botany, engineering, economics, agriculture
and a host of other fields.
Why don't they use the forest?
• •    •
Could it be that there is
something amiss with the
management of the forest;
that the students are unaware
of the opportunities that exist,
or that campus politics confine its use to forestry?
The past practices at the
forest indicate that is isn't a
research forest, but rather, a
small commercial enterprise
with research as a sideline.

"Whadya mean, 'Whafs UNDERCUT?'"
Report improves
forestry faculty
Last year, the UBC Forest Club formed a committee,
chaired by Mr. Fred Bunnell, to find out in general what
Forestry students think of their faculty.
The resultant report includ
ed an evaluation of courses,
instructors, and general administration.
Forestry groups met frequently during the year and
discussed these topics, especially concentrating on the subjects and instructors they knew
This report was not intended
to resemble in any way the
"Black and Blue Review", an
anticalendar published by the
Faculty of Science (at what
looks to be a tidy profit, judging by the publicity and sales
the  book  has   received).
Many students are perhaps
wondering why this Forestry
Report was not made public,
at least to the Foresters who
helped to prepare it.
In fact, only two members
of the Faculty have seen the
complete report.
These two are Dean Gardner
and- Professor Robert Well-
The other members of the
faculty have seen a slightly
edited edition. The editing was
done in order to keep the report as objective as possible.
The report was not prepared
so that future students of the
faculty would have a handy
guide to the good and poor
professors. '
In a faculty as small as ours,
this could have nothing but a
deleterious effect on Forestry
Forestry students have no
choice of the instructors they
will get; every student will
probably take at least one
course from each member of
the Faculty.
What good would it do to
go into a classroom with a preconceived idea that a particu-
would take the instructor a
long time to live down a bad
name, no matter how hard he
strove to improve his teaching
methods and the content of his
Future students would read
the report and think, "Nobody
learns anything from him anyway, "letsgoforcoffee". This
could become very discouraging.
The report was prepared to
help boost the general level of
Forestry Education in this
The report alone will not
do this. It helps to point out
some of the inadequacies of
the Faculty from the students'
viewpoint, and offers constructive  criticism and suggestions
It is hoped that this report
will, in the long run., be of
assistance to the powers that
be to make our faculty one of
the best on the North American continent.
The faculty already has
much of the raw material
necessary to achieve this end.
With the co-operation of the
students, the faculty, the federal and provincial governments, and industry, we can
have the best Forestry School.
The students have already
given much time and effort to
do their part; the members
of the faculty are, to the best
of our knowledge, trying to
correct the faults that the students found.

faculty to this goal and he

Forest Club
oldest, best
on campus
The Forest Club of the University of British Columbia
was established in March,
1929, with the prime objectives
of furthering interests in forestry on the campus, and to
established closer relationships
between Forestry undergraduates and the forest industry.
The club sponsored speakers
from industry and the government in noon-hour sessions
which were open to the general campus. The trend has
swung from what may be
termed a seminar group to the
most active club on campus.
• •    •
We still maintain a speakers'
program, but not to the same
extent, for over the years the
club has added a substantial
and varied social and general
interest program.
Social events include the
campus-wide Forestry Week,
ending with' the UNDERCUT
hard times dance; exclusively
for member — Slashburn —
a stag loggers' sports event at
the UBC Research Forest;
Woodchoppers Ball, a semi-
formal dance; the Graduation
Banquet, at which the graduating class honored, and the
Annual Cut' a wind-up hard-
times dance in the spring.
Apart from this social program, there is the Research
Committee whose research
notes and theses abstracts have
world-wide distribution; the
Investment Club for those interested in the stock market
and all it entails: the yearbook,
The UBC Forester; and a program in intramural sports
which always has good participation.
• •    •
Notable  accomplishments of
the Forest Club are primarily
the publication of the Forestry
Handbook for British Columbia, an 800-page handbook
which has been sold the world
It is a singular triumph in
faculty-student co-operation in
a student endeavour and is
presently undergoing its third
Furthermore, the Handbook
is a required text in this and
several other schools of Forestry.
The Forest Club has also
established two scholarships —
The David Bell Little Scholarship and the Ted Johnson
Memorial Award.
In addition we have assisted
in the instruction of the Junior
Forest Wardens and the Boy
• •    •
Club members cruised the
Junior Forest Wardens' 160-
acre tract of land at Evans
Lake, near Squamish, as an
initial step in establishment of
a forest management plan for
this property.
As one of the more constructively active clubs on campus,
we proudly lay claim to being
one of the oldest as well.
Although the Forest Club
and the Forestry Undergraduate Society are, by constitution, one and the same, we welcome anyone with an interest
in forestry to join us and become a part of the finest organization on this campus.

We are, we are, we are, we are,
We are a bunch of soakes.
We can, we can, we can, we can,
Demolish thirty Cokes.
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum, drink rum,
Get good and sick with us.
For we don't give a damn,
For any old man,
We're here to raise a fuss.

We're a bunch of blow hard, loud mouths,
And what do you think of that?
Chir great president, Art Stevenson,
Is a member of a FRAT (— the RATT),
If you have no sense of values,
And you're dumb or stupid and coarse.
There's no hope left for you,
So become an engineer — of course!
2nd VERSE:
Same as the first, but a little louder and a little bit
pened from last spring to the I
present time.
When the Foresters apparently had the gall to oppose
the establishment's propsals all
hell broke loose.
- Now the Education Action
Committee wants to educate
us (the Foresters) and at the
same time educate the rest of
the student body to support a
mass  march.
All power to them, but perhaps it would have been a better idea for the various elected
representatives to find out
what the students on this
campus wanted to do instead
of rushing madly about now
in an effort to convince their
electors that their actions are
best   for   the   students.
It should be made clear that
most of the Foresters support
the idea of "universal accessibility" as approved by CUS
and  the  AMS  Council.
Foresters in the main do not
approve of the proposed march
into  the  downtown  area.
We think the resulting public opinion will be extremely
unfavorable, thus tainting any
of the desirable effects we
might gain from a sensible,
adult presentation of the circumstances which frustrate
"universal  accessibility".
The Forestry Undergraduate
Society will not tell any of its
members what to think or how
to act if they think and act
as   individuals.
If, however, they act or
speak in the name of this society they will be called before the socity to answer for
their actions.
The Forestry Undergraduate
Society, through its representative on the AMS council,
urges the appraisal and reappraisal of any mass student
action off the campus proper as
to its effect on public opinion.
It is agreed by most concerned that the public must
take the initiative if the governments involved are ever going to enact legislation more
favorable to education.
We therefore feel we cannot support any proposals of
the EAC which we feel will
be misinterpreted by that public.
Moreover, we say 10 you as
students: think for yourselves
—but  please  think!
Finally, we charge the elected representatives on this
campus to represent the thinking of this campus, and the
media dispersing the news of
this campus to the students, to
be above all, accurate and
straight in dispersing this information.
(Continued from Page 2)
ministration   of  the  research
Here is a list of rather
dubious practices which existed, and will continue to exist
until definite steps are taken
to ensure that the forest plays
its proper role, that of a Research Forest.
• The dominant theme
over the last 10 years has
been a demonstration of sustained yield on a small area
based on the practical aspects
of logging;
• The logging is carried
out by a commercial operator,
and the administration has
catered to the logger rather
than to research;
• The logging has been to
"gyppo" standards and therefore cannot be expected to
contribute or demonstration
anything in terms of forest
• The Research Forest is
dependent on logging profits
to pay its staff and conduct
research. A library doesn't
sell its books to pay its staff,
so why should a research
forest sell its trees to pay for
• Recreational facilities
and the presence of the public
have interfered with research.
• •    •
A rather more disturbing
coup is in the offing. There
is a move afoot to increase the
size of the forest.
If this areas is to be used
exclusively for research, well
and good, let it be added. But
if its -purpose is to increase
the allowable cut on the forest, then leave it where it is.
One cannot make an attack
of this kind without offering
some sort of solution or some
constructive ideas on the subject.
Thus, I have a few proposals which I hope will influence the future management of the forest:
• Clearly define the objectives of the forest;
• Make research the primary function of the forest;
• Promote co-operation between forestry and other
branches of research which
could benefit from the use of
the forest;
• •    •
• Only undertake operations which will benefit research;
• Where operations are
essential, but not directly connected with research, make
full use of the results of these
• Obtain financing for the
The last suggestion is practically impossible at the moment due to the failure of the
research forest to produce
sufficient evidence as to its
But if evidence of a new
and progressive administration were available then financial assistance for the forest
may be possible.
Several dedicated individuals have put considerable
time and effort into the forest
and they should be given due
credit for what tV|ey have
This is my interpretation of
the management of the forest.
I may be biased—but if
I am not it's up to you to
turn it into a proper research

A blue-eyed beauty who plans to be an antique
A Nordic daughter who-loves to paint.
An enthusiastic high school cheerleader who won

in the armory.

"I really didn't think I'd get it."
"I was even afraid to hope that I'd be chosen Frosh
Queen because I didn't want to let down," said the

Birgit is registered in first year arts and plans to
major in, German and fine arts.
She was born in Hanover, Germany and lived there
for eight years before coming to Vancouver.
Birgit hopes to return to Germany someday, to study
art at Hamburg or Munich.
Last year, she won a B.C. Government and a Board
of Governors scholarship.
And she won an IODE scholarship for civic activities.
Although Birgit loves UBC's social life — Brock
coffee and all — she hopes to take an active part in
campus events.
"That is why I wanted to run for Frosh Queen,"
Birgit said.
"I wanted to meet people — people who are active
in the university community."
"And I haven't been disappointed yet," she added.
To date, Birgit is assistant manager of the World
University Service's Treasure Van and a member of
She also hopes to join the Frosh Orientation Committee.

Fashions,   fashions, everywhere.
But what is really in at UBC this
Or, for that matter, what's out?
Or does anyone know for sure?
I'm confused—that's all I know.
Last year, anybody who was anybody had a beige duffel coat, a cloth
shoulder bag, ''blonde" hair, sunglasses and a Honda.
And the year before that, women
who were with it had reversible
brown-beige raincoats, colored shoes,
streaked hair and black leotards
(black leotards?????).
This year, however . .  .
In the great outside world, fashion
magazines are raving about new high
waistlines or new low waistlines, or
even no waistlines at all.
Camel hair, reindeer hair, alligator
skin—anything animal—is "chic".
(Personally, I'm keeping my cat
under lock and key until this thing
blows over.)
If you're ancient enough to have
bought a corduroy coat during the
fall rush of '59, you can wear it with
And anything that looks A-go-go
is A-okay.
Corduroy in 1965 is practically
haute-couture, you know.
Fashion at UBC, however is, uh,
rather strange.
The worldly young innocents in
first year seem to be the only ones
who know what fashion means.
In first year, you actually look like
a ''college girl" — like a Seventeen
magazine manniquin in real life.
But time and fee increases take
their toll.
By second or third year, you avoid
fashion magazines, borrow your kid
sister's clothes, or turn "beat" so
you can wear sunglasses and pretend
you're someone else.
You wear your one-only A-line
skirt seven days a week because you
heard someone say A-lines are here
to stay.
(And anyway, by now you're probably too poor to have more than one
You cultivate the mature look.
And you pretend that freshettes
just don't exist.
Several fee raises and a year or
so later, however, and you become
blase about the whole thing.
You face facts.
You are out of it—right out.
The only thing you know about
waistlines is that your's is somewhere
below your protruding rib cage.
You've given up on eye make-up
because you can't get the paint brush
between your contact lenses and your
inch-thick bifocals.
(Anyway, you're probably crosseyed by now.)
The only thing you know about
texture is that your coat hasn't got
And by now, you've dyed your hair
so many times that everybody knows
for sure.
IThe last straw comes when you
have to ask some sweet young thing
what new-fangled terms like "the
A-go-go look" mean.
Then you know for sure.
You are very, very "out" indeed.

for the leadership conference Oct. 15-17. Busses leave
Brock at 4:30 Friday. Deadline Wednesday 1:30.
The wqman who helped draft
UBC's first student constitution 50 years ago is back in
class again.
And Mrs. Sherwood Lett,
Class of '17, is enjoying the
"campus of the future" just as
much as the raccoon-coat days
when 300 students jammed the
Fairview shacks at Granville
and Broadway.
The prospect of interviewing Mrs. Lett found me both
curious and apprehensive.
She had been probably the
most active woman on campus
50 years ago. She helped draft
the first AMS constitution, with
the man who was later to become her husband, chancellor
of UBC, and Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court of B.C.
The constitution was unique.
It granted a greater degree of
self-government than was held
by any student body in Canada
or the U.S.
And more important, for
Mrs. Lett, it gave women on
campus equal voting rights,
which didn't exist on the Canadian political scene until a year
But that was 50 years ago.
Would she be a woman of my
grandmother's generation who
had stopped living in the present?
It seemed highly improbable
—judging from the Italian-knit
suit she wore and the impressive list of community projects
in which she had been active.
It was with belief that I found
her to be a woman keenly
aware of the "Zeitgeist" of our
Mrs. Lett said the big difference between now and her
years as an undergraduate was
a basic change in attitude
among the women.
What caused the change in
attitude towards individual
rights, she wanted to know?
"Now a student seems to feel
she has an innate right to fulfilment on every level. With
the abandonment of certain restrictions, the individual loses
a certain respect for the sanctity of marriage," she said.
Didn't I think the colossal increase in the divorce rate must
in some way be connected with
the trend of sexual permissiveness in our time? I had to admit the two were linked in
their appearance in our society.
Mrs. Lett went on to speak
of the alarming increase in
illegitimacy, and the age group
of mothers involved. Are we,
those who might have a rational opinion on sex, failing the
students of tomorrow, those
who themselves are as yet incapable of a mature view, and
simply accept the most comfortable attitude? she asked.
Is the trend, rather than a
rational development^ the result of the influence   of TV,

music, magazines, and movies?
This change, said Mrs. Lett,
was the thing that impressed
her most over half a century
of knowing people.
And Mrs. Lett, back in the
classroom again, reminded me
of the benefits her education
had brought her, and the duties
that go with it.
"Society benefits from an
educated person who isn|t an
egotist," she said. "But it will
be harmed by those who have
no concern for the common

Let your hair down, girls
"Let's go and see the Beatles," I said to the girl.
"I hate the Beatles," she
said, "I just can't stand long
hair on men. Long hair belongs to women."
Now this statement puzzled me. Yes, long hair looks
better on women but how
many women appreciate the
fact enough to grow it.
Not the one I was talking
And not many I know.
It seems to be a result of
the emancipation bit that the
idea today is for women to
cut their hair as short as possible and curl it as close to
the scalp as possible so they
look as masculine as possible.
An exhaustive survey I
carried out in Brock lounge
Friday noon showed that
more than 50 per cent of
UBC women have their locks
chopped off before they
reach the base of the neck.
This is far short, of the

It was my first trip to
New York. I had come for a

I lived in the New York
University residences in Greenwich Village.
The Village is a haven of
creativity, a seedbed for new
ideas, a place to get away
from the city.
Along with the aura of
freedom there is a great deal
of culture.
The bums may be bums,
but they're intelligent bums
with a purpose.

she spent six weeks in New
York Studying fashion illustration.
At first I w a s a little
afraid to walk down the
streets at night, but I got
used to it—I had to if I wanted to go anywhere.
There was a certain
warmth in this Bohemian
community-perhaps because
everybody there lives together in a kind of harmony. Acceptance is the password.
•    •    •
The freedom of this community is reflected by the
way the many ethnic, religious and racial groups coexist cheerfully. And it is
one of the only places today
where inter-racial couples
can live comfortably.
The Village hase been seen
as a focal point for a variety
of infections—drugs, sexual
promiscuity, trumpery in the
arts. But all this is simply
learning about life—a new
way of life most of us have
never seen.
The answer is nowhere.
While living and working
in New York I had the sensation of being in the centre
of the world — the feeling
that everything happens
around New York.

The city offers the best
and worst of everything: the
wealthiest people and the
poorest: the poshest uptown

Help is on the way however because the style among
high schoolers and freshettes
is swinging back towards the
Rapunzel look.
Perhaps it will last into
But until then I'll have to
sigh and perhaps begin a
campaign, distributing leaflets saying "Think Rapunzel" or "Help".
A simple shampoo and set
can cost from $5 in the Village to more than $100 (including hairpiece) in uptown
The average price uptown
is $12.
New York women seem to
be far more style-conscious
than we of the West Coast.
Hats and gloves are common
during the day and long
dresses for evening wear are
practically a must.

In the Village, however,
there is only one style—
casual. The almost-compulsory outfit consists of sandals, blue jeans, long hair
and shoulder-strap bag.
