DABBLING DEMONSTRATION of modern art lured hundreds of students to Buchanan
lounge in a special event titled Art in Action. Thirteen artists molded pottery, splashed
canvases, and toyed with metal sculpture for the public (Story, page 7).

Valiant R-squad
outblinks radar
UBC's R-squad has foiled another radar trap.
And all the RCMP could do
was make faces at them.
The R-squad, a campus organization dedicated to helping students avoid RCMP radar traps, noticed a trap set
up on Northwest Marine Tuesday.
So they came back to the
university and made a sign
which said "R-SQUAD," and
glued it to the back of the
squad car.
Then they drove through the
trap, headlights flashing.
Annoyed RCMP officers
stopped the R-squad car. They
searched the glove-compartment, the trunk, the floor.
They even took the back
seat of the car out.
But they didn't find a thing
for which they could charge
the R-squad.
They checked the lights,
windshield wipers, horn, muffler and turn-signals.
Still nothing.
So they went away and
caught some more speeders.
Then the R-squad drove
back through the trap without the sign, but with the car
lights on warning oncoming
motorists of the impending
danger.
So the police couldn't do
anything.
But the officer in the ghost
car wound down his window
and   bared   his   teeth   at   the
valiant squad members.
And on successive trips by
he thumbed his nose, made obscene gestures, and merely
looked offended.
The   R-squad   parked   in   a
half-hour   parking   zone   and

UBC debaters
top CUS finals
CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I.
(CUP)—Two UBC students
Wednesday won the 1964
Canadian Union of Students
debating finals.
Peter Hyndman, Law I,
and Denis Forkin, Arts III,
defeated St. Dunstan's Colin
McMillan and Paul Batchild-
er on a split decision arguing "Federal control of education means cultural genocide, political strife, and a
divorce of the elector from
the educational issues that
are now so close to him."
Victoria hit
with $50
fee boost
Tuition fees at Victoria College have been increased
by $50.
The increase was announced Wednesday in a statement
prepared by the Victoria College Board of Governors.
The   fee   hike    affects    all
15 students
win Wilson
scholarships
fee hike affects all
faculties and brings ituition
fees up to the same level as
that of UBC — $372 a year.
Victoria College AMS president Larry Devlin immediately
branded the increase "totally
unacceptable."
He called it a serious blow
to student welfare.
PUZZLING
The board said it was increasing the fees "in light of
the financial situation for the
coming years."
The statement said it was
necessary to raise fees in order
to enjoy continued academic
growth.
UBC student president Malcolm Scott called the fee hike
"puzzling."
"The government pays 61
per cent of Victoria College's
expenses, but only 36 per cent
of UBC's."
(Because of increased government grants to Victoria College, the student contribution
to the college budget will drop
from 28 per cent to 26 per
cent despite the fee increase.)
"They had a $200,000 surplus last year at Vic College,"
he said, "let them use that before they raise fees."
NO  COINCIDENCE
AMS President-elect Roger
McAfee said he thought the
fact that fees were going up all
over the country was not
coincidental.
"They are all going up by
about $50," he said, "not
enough to arouse the students,
but enough to reduce governmental  responsibility."
UBC received the largest
number of the Woodrow Wilson Fellowships for the Pacific
Northwest region.
Fifteen of the 47 scholarships
allotted to the region went to
UBC students—three of them
Ubyssey staffers.
The    Northwest    region    is
composed   of   B.C.,   Alberta,
Washington,   Idaho,   Montana,
Oregon and Alaska.

The Woodrow Wilson Fellowships grant full tuition and fees
for the first year of graduate
studies at any university the recipient chooses.
There is also a stipend of
$1,800 and dependancy allowances.
Another 10 UBC students received honorable mention.

AMS president Malcolm
Scott said Wednesday he
couldn't bear the thought.
"I would be disturbed at
the thought of a bill bearing a

Caouette or Diefenbaker—not
to mention Sir John A. or anyone else," he said.
He was commenting of a
series of resolutions passed by

Thunderbird basket ball

been named co-winners of
the Bobby Gaul Memorial

It is the first time since
1949 that the award has
been presented to two athletes. Last year's winner was
football star Ray Wickland.
The awards were presented Wednesday night at
the annual Big Block ban-
quet where UBC's top athletes are honored.

Scott said making the Prime
Minister head of state, in effect, makes Canada a republic.
"I don't fancy Diefenbaker,
St. Laurent or any other preceding leading lights would
make satisfactory heads of
state," said Soott.
Another Maritime resolution suggested the playing of
God Save the Queen be discontinued in Canada unless
the British Monarch is present
and that Canada adopt a distinctive Canadian flag.
Scott said he thought the
resolutions were based on ignorance, hastiness and bad
judgment.

Shepard  warns  council
Ditch CUS move
gathering steam
If the Canadian Union of Students doesn't start to act
on the promised federal scholarships and loans, UBC should
pull out of it, engineering president Pete Shepard told student council Monday.
"I've been speaking to a
number of students and they're
quite concerned about the ineffectiveness of CUS," Shepard said.
"If CUS hasn't done some
sort of work on our behalf in
a couple of weeks, their inaction may be used at the gen-
oral meeting as a lever to get
us out of CUS."
Council passed a motion by
Shepard calling for CUS to
implement the AMS program
of action on the interest-free
loan plan and 10,000 scholarships of $1,000 each promised
by the  Liberal government.
The AMS program asked, for
settlement by the provinces of
the constitutional details of
the plans,. and for student representation on the Canadian
Universities Foundation study
of the details of the plans.
The CUS organization was
directed to notify UBC before
March 18 on their opinion of
the worth of the AMS program
and any progress CUS has
made towards implementing it.
(The AMS general meeting
is   on  March   19.)
During the discussion following the announcement of
Shepard's motion, AMS president Malcolm Scott cautioned
council about the CUF study.
"The Canadian Universities
Foundation was set up to aid
university administ rations
rather than students," he said.
He said a detailed study of
the constitutional details was
needed, but that student interests should be protected by
having a student member of
the CUF investigating body.
Scott said he and AMS president-elect Roger McAfee had
contacted the prime minister,
all B.C. members of parliament and all political leaders
except Caouette.
He said he plans to meet
Bennett, Attorney - General
Bonner, and Education Minister Peterson prior to the federal - provincial conference ir.
Quebec City March 31.
CUS has asked that conference to discuss the matter.
CUSO gets
Best foot
forward
By AL BIRNIE
Students should be made
more aware of the philosophy
of the Canadian University
Students Overseas, the new
committee chairman told council Monday night.
Tony Best, Comm. Ill, was
appointed by council Monday
to head the 1964-65 CUSO
committee on campus.
In an interview after his appointment, Best said CUSO
sends students overseas to
work in underdevelopted countries, much like the U.S. Peace
Corps, but with a basic difference.
"The students we send over
work at specific jobs, and are
paid the going wage in that
area by the country's government," he said.
"That way they mix socially
to a larger extent."
Best said many Canadian
students aren't aware of the
opportuni ties available
through CUSO.
"CUSO contacts the governments of the different countries and they send us a list
of jobs they would like filled.
We correlate the jobs with the
students who apply.
"We pay for transportation,
medical expenses, and resettlement.
"We send teachers and tech-
ical personnel mostly, but the
possibilities are unlimited,"
said Best.
"The jobs usually last for
two years."
Best said his theme for next
year would be to create awareness in the general student
population of CUSO.
"We will also hold seminars
in which problems and needs
of other countries and our
dents will be discussed.

Scooped again
The latest developments in the lobby for the liberals' promised 10,000 scholarships can bring nothing but
gloom to UBC students who are hopeful of getting them
before they have to pay next September's fee raise.
It appears the issue is now not only one of when
we are finally going to get the money—but whether
or not we are going to get it at all.
It appears that the Liberals, hard-pressed for
money to support the scheme, plan to delay legislation
as long as possible, probably another year or two. Prime
Minister Pearson has said the plan will be implemented
as promised, but he's only promised he'll do so "during
the current term of office"—which could last another
three or four years.
A delay would also put off any decision which could
arouse French-Canadian ire until the Liberals have
smoothed things over sufficiently in Quebec to assure
that they wouldn't be defeated on the hotly-contested
matter of federal aid to education.
Consitutionality isn't the problem—it's French-
Canadian feelings. One prominent member of the B.C.
cabinet told AMS officials last week that B.C. doesn't
care how much money the federal government gives
students, as long as it doesn't try to tell Victoria who to
hire or what to teach.
But worse still, from the students' point of view, is
Pearson's decision to hand the matter over to a commission of the Canadian Universities Foundation, an organization sponsored by the various university administrations. CUF will study the whole matter of federal
aid to universities—but it won't report back until September of 1965. The scholarships won't likely come until
then.
It is feared that because Canadian Union of Students, the student organization, has failed miserably to
act on the matter, the university administrations are
getting the inside track on federal money.
This means the money could in future go directly
to the universities in the form of operating grants—
rather than to the students in the form of scholarships.
It is well known that the universities are pressing for
greater federal grants.
I A typical administration opinion was expressed by
! UBC president Macdonald, when he announced financial
plans for the University in January. Asked whether
scholarship programs would aid UBC's financial plight,
he replied bluntly: "Scholarships help the students, but
they don't help the university."
Faced with fee increases and rising living costs from
coast to coast, students have good cause to become
alarmed—especially when their own national organization and their national government are shirking their
responsibility to act on prior commitments.
Aw, shacks!
A short item in The Ubyssey the other day proclaimed the intention of Oxford and Cambridge Universities, long the epitome of stone-hewn, ivy-covered academic tradition, to use prefabricated wooden huts to
house the record enrolments expected there in the next
few years.
Trust those radical English intellectuals to think of
something as practical as that. Why, here at UBC we've
got the biggest enrolment crush we've had in years. Why
didn't we think of wooden huts? And if Oxford gets
them, they're bound to become the fad.
As it is now, we foolishly spend the taxpayer's (and
major contributor, the government of B.C.'s) money on
lavish, uneconomical classrooms made of brick, cement,
and even stucco.
We'd suggest the administration snap up all the
army huts they can find, and haul them out to campus
immediately.
We wouldn't want SFA chancellor Gordon Shrum
to beat us to them.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Provincial right
Editor,  The  Ubyssey:
I strongly object to your
misrepresentation of the remarks made by Ronald Montcalm on the subject of the
federal government's university scholarship plan (Editorial, March 3).
If you have checked the
founding document of our
Confederation lately, you will
note that Article 92 clearly
advocates education as a
function of the sovereign
provinces, the contracting
parties.
• •    •
Since education is clearly
one of the principal mechanisms for the transmission of
culture and heritage, and not
simply a means of mass vocational training, this provision
is important if we are to retain that quality of regional
diversity within a confederate
framework which is the
major virtue of all multi-
regional, multi-lingual states.
This situation would be
true even if one of the contracting parties to Confera-
tion (Quebec) did not have a
distinctive language.
It is obvious that the direct
payment of federal funds in
any way whatsoever is a hindrance to provincial control of
the education facilities. This is
particularly true in the case
of Quebec which has a complex system of classical colleges which combine secondary and university functions
in a single institution.
• •    •
To use this example, someone must decode where the
dividing line will be drawn
between a "secondary" student and a "university" student. If this someone is the
federal government, then that
institution will be making
value judgements on matters
of education, an area which
by constitutional fact and
sociological necessity is under
provincial jurisdiction.
Many other such examples
—such as the mushrooming
growth of the 'semi-university", the technological vocational   schools   —   might   be
given. Most such instances
would exist even if one of the
contracting parties to Confederation (Quebec) did not possess   a  distinctive  language.
I would suggest, therefore,
that the question is far more
complex than you seem to
believe. Ultimately, the solution is likely to be found in
a system whereby boards appointed by the provincial
governments administer federal funds in a scholarship
plan tailored to regional
needs and demands.
Perhaps, it will be found,
as Mr. Montcalm suggests, in
the devolution of certain taxing powers. In any rate, we
can be sure that the answer
must be within the context
of the traditional framework
of our Confederation.

Win hearts
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I wish to focus the attention of the Graduating Class
to the following points.
Vociferous objections to
both the vote on the class gift
and to the selection itself
have been heard.
It seems that nothing was
done because the alternative
(periodicals) could not muster
sufficient support. However,
Miss Joan Ripley's suggestion
(Ubyssey, March 10) that the
class gift constitute a donation to the Pilikwe School
Project deserves a new meet-
ting and a new vote. It is not
too   late.
While I do not approve the
fasting stunts used to promote
the project, I think that the
project itself is a worthy one,
and Miss Ripley's suggestion
meritorious.
Education is the greatest
want in Africa. As a member
of the Graduating Class and
as a foreign student, I think
such a gift to Africa is pragmatically appropriate. It will
win the hearts and minds of
many for Canada.

jokes that no one understands.
I also disagree with the

you want women barefoot

do something besides get the
world in the terrible mess it's

BACKGROUND
BG's frankness costs him votes
By MIKE GRENBY
NEW YORK
I followed Barry Goldwater
on his campaign trail in New
Hampshire just before the
Mhrch 10 primary, and I was
impressed.
Favorably impressed by
Goldwater, the man. Unfavorably impressed by Goldwater,
the political philosopher.
• •    •
I liked Goldwater's straightforward honesty. He said
what he thought, and felt uncomfortable when forced to
adopt an insincere but politically expedient meet-the-pub-
lic attitude.
A good illustration of this
occurred during Goldwater's
visit to Nashua, a town of
about 65,000 in southern New
Hampshire.
The Goldwater caravan (the
senator and his wife in a blue-
and-white Cadillac, a dozen
aides and about 30 newsmen)
pulled up to a motel for a brief
lunch and rest period.
• •    *
Followed by the newsmen,
Goldwater went into a room
for an informal press conference. He took off his suit
jacket, put his feet up on the
bed, and began answering
questions.
"One of the things we've
found out that I've been doing
wrong is too much 'shooting
from the hip'," Goldwater
said, cleaning his horn-rimmed
BARRY GOLDWATER
. . . the hard sell
glasses. "I've also had to cut
out using 'hell' and 'damn,'
and that was a hell of a hard
thing to do.
"My major asset is my frankness. I don't want to go around
shaking hands because I don't
like it. I don't want to be unnatural."
But Goldwater's campaign
directors didn't seem to agree
that the senator's frankness
was such a great asset. A few
minutes later, they announced
Squeak up, URA!
that Goldwater would go on a
hand-shaking street tour in
the afternoon. They felt that
handshaking was the thing to
•do, particularly since Gov.
Nelson Rockefeller was having such success with the approach.
So Goldwater walked along
Main Street in Nashua and
shook hands.
• *    •
"How are you, sir? Gold-
water's the name," was the
greeting many received. A
split-second handshake for a
street cleaner, a slightly longer handshake for an auburn-
haired girl in a bank, a pat on
the arm for a housewife—but
all with forced friendliness.
"Across the street, now,
senator," said one of his aides,
and as Goldwater turned to
shake another hand, the aide
interrupted, "No, senator,
you've already met him."
• •    •
That Goldwater's dislike for
the personal touch showed
through was typified by a
comment from a motel manager in Nashua:
"Barry Goldwater isn't as
warm as Rockefeller, and he
just doesn't have the same
charm Rocky has."
Goldwater tried to make up
some of this warmth and
charm through a folksy touch
to his speeches. He frequently commented on the beautiful hills and streams in New
Hampshir.-e,   and   his   "Why,
Dorms should join AMS
By TOM  WAYMAN
I think the University Residences' Association executive
should have consulted their
membership before they rejected the AMS's offer of af-
filation.
URA executive, which purports to represent the interests of all students in residences, rejected the AMS suggestion outright.
Their reasons for not joining were that there would be
no benefits, that it would have
complicated banking arrangements, and that it would have
imposed a link between them
and the housing administration.
•    •    •
Ordinarily, I'd be the last
person to advocate anyone
joining AMS, but in this case
I think there is sufficient case
for affiliation to warrant at
least a canvassing of residence student opinion on the
matter.
If URA felt they couldn't
spare funds for a secret ballot
vote, they could have conducted a referendum on a canton
system—with each wing of
each hut voting by show of
hands and the reps bringing
in the results.
Benefits offered by AMS included a closer liaison in program planning.
Since residence-dwellers
would form the majority of
those who would  benefit by
an increase in night-time activities, similar to those carried
out at Toronto, URA executive's idea that this is of no
possible benefit is totally incomprehensible to this columnist.
Other benefits from affiliation with AMS would be a
louder voice to speak with —
to housing, or anyone, and
perhaps increased funds for
inter-residence activities.
• •    •
But the URA executive
claims that banking through
AMS is too difficult.
"Our system is set up in
such a manner as moneys cannot be withdrawn on the basis
of the say-so of any one individual in an organization," said
AMS treasurer Chris Hansen.
"It is sound as far as accounting is concerned.
"And in 80 per cent of the
complaints about efficiency,"
he continued," the trouble has
arisen as a result of a mis*
take by the individual complaining."
• •    •
(With regard to URA executives' concern for their precious link with housing, an arrangement could probably be
made with AMS so URA could
run to housing whenever they
wanted, but perhaps with the
awesome might of the AMS to
back their demands.
This, of course, would lessen
housing's hold over URA, but
it is just possible this isn't a
bad thing.
Ot any rate, the issue should
certainly have been discussed
in open forum, and even
(gasp!) the voice of those Living in residences might have
been heard.
•    •    •
It's about time, anyway,
URA spoke to someone but the
residences and housing.
With residence students facing a long weekend freeze-out
of Library facilities, just before final exams, URA is now
running around co-ordinating
a skating party.
Squeak up, URA. The ears
of UBC are listening.

back in Arizona it's so dry that
trees chase dogs," always
brought laughter and applause.
But, again, the bluntness
with which he commented on
the issues of the day and stated his platform did him harm.
In his argument against big
government, for example,
Goldwater wasn't content
merely to generalize on the
dangers of increasing central
control and thereby capitalize
on his listeners' natural fear
of loss of freedom. He had
to lessen this optimum suuport
by detailing the steps necessary to reduce "this dangerous
power."
•    •    •
In the hamlet of Hudson,
about 125 persons attended a
rally. Elderly women comprised about half the crowd,
and most of the audience had
come to see Barry Goldwater,
the man.
They didn't mind listening
to his main conservative theses, with which they agreed.
But when Goldwater began to
go into specifics, he lost most
of his audience. The broad
outlines of Goldwater's ideas
were fine; a breakdown of the
overall concepts was upsetting. The parts weren't always as attractive as the
whole, and they could get
confusing.
That was only logical. What
surprised me was that Gold-
water's   proposals   had   such
wide appeal to begin with.
Goldwater seemed to build
most of his support on fear—
fear of communism, fear of
government " interference "
and control, fear of change,
fear of the new and unproven.
He was against the nuclear
test ban treaty with Russia because he said the Communists
were not to be trusted. "Look
at their record," he said.
"Look how often they've betrayed us in the past."
The .only way to put the
economy back on its feet,
Goldwater contended, was to
balance the budget. He derided those who deviated from
the classical theories of Adam
Smith and David Ricardo.
It sounded strange to hear
such reactionary ideas supported and applauded.
•    •    •
Before meeting him, I had
pictured Goldwater as a crank
extremist with a fanatical but
limited following, a leader of
the  John Birch  movement.
Now I knew better. Although Goldwater's philosophy sounded extreme to me,
he was no crank. His supporters were ordinary people with
conservative views, and they
were not a small group.
I was suprised to find out
all this—and a little frightened.

Governors
asked for
'mercy'
TORONTO (CUP) — The
students council at the University of Toronto has asked the
Board of Governors for mercy.
Council fears a proposed administration by-law which will
make U of T's student govern
ment the most restricted ir
Canada, according to student
president  Doug  Ward.
"We'd even have to pull
out of the Canadian Union oi
Students," he said, "because
we wouldn't satisfy its definition of a student government."
To try to head off the bylaw the students administrative council has sent a lengthy
report to the board asking for
"consideration   and  mercy".
Administration restrictions
on student government have
always caused friction at U of
Toronto.
The University Act of 1906
says the student council "exists
solely as a creature of the
Board of Governors and at the
pleasure of the board."
The board has already ruled
that all council expenses must
be approved by the administration vice-president. Expenses
over $200 require approval oi
the whole board.
Ward said he is violently opposed to further restrictions
proposed in the board's by-law
Details of the by-law are stil1
not known.
"We have our backs to the
wall," said Ward.
The student report say
council should serve as the
official medium of communication to the board but not be
subject to the board's whims.
"We can't force the board to
do anything," said Ward, "but
a strong opinion from us might
produce a change in the bylaw."

A two-day workshop will

The workshop on March 13

Dr. Dorothy Lee, an American anthropologist, will be the
main speaker.
The first head of the home
economics department, Mrs.
R. N. Jefferson, will also be
present.
Further information can be
obtained from the conference
office of the Extension Department.
But council keeps it
Dump conference,
councillors told
By AL BIRNIE
High School Conference is a waste of money and should
be scrapped, says this year's chairman.
Jane Philip, chairman of the
recently-completed conference,
told student council the effort
that goes into it is not worth
the information received by
students.
"We receive grants of $600
for the conference, but the
money and effort could be
given to more useful purposes," she said.
Council voted to continue
the conference next year.
"We find that the informa
tion gained here is not being
passed on by the delegates to
their classmates, especially in
out-of-town areas, where it is
needed most," said Miss Philip.
"Lack of interest is another
problem — only 175 out of
a possible 308 delegates came
this year."
"Unless we can find somp
way to insure that the right
students are chosen, and carry
back the information properly,
we should discontinue the conference  in  its present form."
Jason Leask, Frosh President, disagreed with Miss
Philip as to the value of the
conference,
"I got a lot out of my trip
here last year,"  he said.
Education President George
Boechler suggested that specific 'group conferences', like the
Future Teachers' and Agriculture Conferences, would be
more valuable.
"These conferences are successful because they are attended by specific interest
groups, and are oriented towards specific professions," he
said.

The pilots who wear TCA wings are capable, confident
men, many of whom have thousands of hours of flying
experience. But, they still have to write periodic
examinations. And take refresher courses covering
the complex flight procedures of modern aviation.
Even have their flying skills checked four times a year
in flight simulators which cost as much as a million
dollars, yet never get an inch off the ground. TCA
pilots, however, don't mind these examinations.
They know the minute they stop having them, they're
grounded. □ When you get on the move in the business world—or if you're travelling for pure, 'plane

"It's ridiculous to spend

There were 13 artists producing, with the work of six

Some were students at Vancouver School of the Arts, some
were instructors at the art

The largest crowd gathered
about Wayne Ngan, profes

He threw great gobs of clay
on his motorized potter's wheel

There were painters painting

A weaver used her loom to
create highly colored cloths for
