No. 50
All B and G ladders and all Band G
men decided they couldn't get the second
' vice-president down again.
So, the newly-eiected second vice,
Byron Hender, spent two hours on the roof
ot the library at noon Thursday.
Hender was hoisted to the roof of the
building by engineers as a result of comments he made about engineers after he
was elected Wednesday.
Three thousand students gathered to
taunt and stare at the stranded Hender before he was rescued by brothers from his
lraternity, Beta Theta Pi.
• •    •
Once, rescue looked close.
Two fire trucks came.
Then the new campus ambulance came.
Several  B   and   G   men   and  firemen
consulted, raised a ladder, then decided it
was too risky to try to bring Hender down
with the large crowd around.
"If they (the crowd) had surged, the
ladder would have fallen and people would
have been killed," said tire chief Gerard
"There was no real emergency anyway."
So, Hender, dressed in woman's clothing, remained shivering on the roof.
He had been abducted from a Commerce class shortly before noon.
A messenger came to the door of the
Buchanan classroom, said he had an
urgent message for Hender and asked him
to step outside.
Hender was then grabbed by a band of
engineers, carried to the library and hoisted
to the roof on ladders.
* •    •
The engineers then removed their ladders and stood below taunting:
"Want to come down, Hender?"
"Yes," he answered.
"Going to resign, Hender?"
"No," he answered.
So they left him there.

Kenneth O. Leitch became 1963-64 Co-ordinator of Activities by acclamation Thursday. The third-year arts student, a
fraternity member, is a newcomer to campus government.

second slate post to go by acclamation as nominations closed
late Thursday.
Candidates for treasurer are:
•<2hris Hansen, Arts II, Eduard
TLavalle and Laurie Frisby, both
third-year  commerce  students.
Mike Coleman, Arts III, and
James 'Ward, Arts II, are running for vice-president.
Calathumpium president Mike
Horsey said his organization
would not field any candidates.
Second slate elections, will be
held Feb. 13.
At the same time as the second
slate vote, students will be asked
to vote on a referendum on
nuclear arms for Canada.
The referendinSt is being-s^jbnr,
sored by the National Federation of Canadian University Students.
It will ask whether Canada
should accept nuclear arms under any circumstances, or, alternatively, whether Canada should
acceplrnuclear arms now.
There may also be a referendum calling for increased Canadian foreign aid.
The second referendum will
be brought before Council for
approval Monday.
Student Council approved the
nuclear arms referendum last
Monday. But they were careful
to make clear that it is a NFCUS
referendum, not an AMS one.
"This nomination deadline was
quieter than the one for first
slate", said Peter Leask, returning officer. "There were no last
minute nominations."
Minutes before the first slate
deadline three Calathumpium
candidates were nominated to
prevent positions going by acclamation.
But the Calathumpiums withdrew from politics after hearing
the results of the first slate election.
With four thumbtacks
Prosecution made charge stick
Justice was done at UBC
While engineers hoisted Byron Hender onto the library
roof, student court convicted
Radsoc of illegally posting posters.
The prosecution produced
lour thumbtacks and two handbills as evidence that Radsoc
had tacked the posters on a
building wall.
The prosecution also alleged
Radsoc had posted the signs
without first asking permission
of co-ordinator of activites Bernie Papke.
"In the future," said Judge
John Swan as he handed down
his decision of guilty, "we're
going to look very severely on
cases where property damage
occurs in posting illegal
Radsoc was fined $2.
UBC Judo Club received the
maximum fine of $5 for allegedly posting more than 100
handbills on a board construction wall.
Prosecution said the handbills later littered East Mall
following a heavy rain.
Defence council for the Judo
Club attempted to prove the
handbills — advertising a judo
tournament last November —
were posted without the
authority of any member of
the club.
But the court considered the
argument invalid.
Radsoc's defence lawyer had
the same success when he argued that his clients had made
a diligent effort to ensure that
1,100 handbills advertising a
twist party were circulated in
accordance with AMS regulations.
It was the first time the court
had met this term.
Judges John Swan, Ron
Parker and Chief Justice Tom
English sat on the bench.

The Canadian Peace Research Institute will soon embark on a study of the economics of disarmament, says its
director, Dr. Norman Alcock.
Alcock said the study would
be the first of its kind in Canada.

losses from disarmament can be
offset by government spending,"
Alcock  said.

Alcock appeared at UBC
last yes.r spearheading a drive
for  funds  for  CAPRI.
He says so far the public has
donated more than $300,000.
Six full-time researchers have
begun work for the institute.
Alcock says that at present
the researchers are working on
separate projects at a number
of different universities in eastern Canada.
He says the institute, however,
will  soon be  housed near  Toronto  in   a  building  at  the  Ontario  Experimental  community.

New course
views press
A careful study of the press
as a political institution has
been underway at UBC since
Ten upper-year students are
investigating aspects of the press
and public affairs in a political
science seminar under the direction of Dr. E. R. Black.
The course, Political Science
3Q4, was approved last spring by
University authorities and will
appear in the forthcoming University calendar as one of the
political science department's
regular offerings.
Students have been carrying
out the case studies trying to
assess the "power of the press"
iri" election campaigns and the
day-to-day government business.
Dr. Black's thesis, given in the
course outline, is that the press
can be considered a political
institution (like political parties)
which mediates and modif es pol-
tieal issues.
This, he says, is a vital part of
the interchange between the
reading and voting public and
those who formulate and carry
out public policy at the cabinet
During these inquiries, the students have also been concerned
with newspaper history and technology, public opinion and communications theory, freedoms
and responsibilities of the press,
and the moral dimensions of
press operations.
Recently, Arnold Edinborough,
former editor of Saturday Night,
annonuced he would be giving
a similar course.
He said his course will deal
with the oolitical and social aspects of the press and will be
given in the English department.
It is expected the political
science course will appeal more
to serious students of political
science who wish to study the
pjaee of the mass communications media in public affairs.
Dr. Black, (Ph.D. Duke) a
former newspaper reporter and
news editor both in Vancouver
. and in eastern Canada, graduated in journalism from the University of Western Ontario.

Canada favors disarming
The researchers are paid from
$6,000 to $12,000 per pear and
Alcock gets $7,000 for himself.
He says a campaign of businesses for support will soon be-
3,in and the federal government
will be approached for aid.
"The major study done by
the Institute so far has been
or. Canadians' attitudes to peace
and war. It is a serious sociological study — perhaps the
most comprehensive in the
Held," said Alcock.
A thousand Canadians were
asked 40 questions by professional pollsters.
The survey showed that 91
per cent of Canadians are in
favour of disarmament. The figure dropped to 71 per cent if
disarmament would result in
loss of employment.
It also showed that 78 per
cent of Canadians are in favour
of a strong permanent U.N
police force, but only one third
wanted to spend more money
on it, and less than five per
cent knew how much the U.N.
"There is room here for great
education," said the young ex-
The institute. may do research on attitudes toward foreign aid contributions, Alcock
says. Only 11 per cent wanted
to increase Canada's foreign aid
''There   are   opportunities for
study  to  sort  out why  we feel
this  way,"  he said.
Early plans for CAPRI had
envisioned a study of the means
oi preventing the outbreak of
accidental war.
"CAPRI now realizes that it
is not equipped to do such a
study. It is too technical and too
much of the relevant information is classified,"  Alcock  said.
"There's lots we can do with
unclassified   information."
CAPRI will not be concerned
with   international   law   either.
"One of the least dramatic,
but most important projects of
the institute is to build up a
card file of all works in the
war-peace field."
At present there are 4,000
cards, but CAPRI plans to extend this with entries from foreign publications collected by
volunteers around  the  world.
As well as studying attitudes
of the public to peace, CAPRI is
conducting attitude surveys of
elites of government, business
and labor.
One researcher is now studying the background of national
police forces and applying his
information to help in formation   of   the   U.N.   police  force.
"The attitudes of other countries to police forces is completely different from ours.
With co-operation with other
institutes w.e might be able to
arrive at some common denominator,''  said  Alcock.
The information compiled by
CAPRI is released to governments, the U.N. and the newspapers.
"Our policy is to publicize
all the work we do. Because
we're young we haven't been
as successful as we had hoped,
but we expect to get radio, TV
and  magazine coverage."

The traditions and taboos
which surround a m ne and
female getting to know each
other, particularly at univer-
ve'rsity, are downright frustrating.
I'm studying and as I glance
around, I notice an interesting
looking  girl   sitting  nearby.
Being straightforward and an
avid advocate of the direct
approach, I immediately get the
urge to walk over to the girl,
introduce myself and ask her
out for coffee.
-  But I don't dare be so blunt
and   honest.
• *    •
No, I must suffer for days
and days until I either notice
her talking to someone I know
and ' set up an introduction
through my friend or happen
(accidentally or otherwise) to
bump (physically) into her.
Then, at last, I can find out
her name. Now I can get going.
But no. Again I dare do no
more than say hello when I
see her in the hall or smile
when she happens to glance my
At least a week of this ridiculous preamble has to elapse before I take the next step.
Mustering my best nervous
and embarrassed style I approach my queen and hesitantly make  some   completely   in-
• ane remark. She smiles and
answers with some equally
trite  comment.

Then, as casually .as possible,
I let slip the question  of that
moment:   "Would   you   like   to
\     go   for  a   cug   of   moffee   .   .   .
er, a. mug of coffee?"
Another smile and "Well,
I really should do some studying . . . comes the prescribed
response which I endeavor to
counter with a little persua-
eion: "The break will do you
good," and at long last we're

a month to get together with
this beauty whom I've worshipped from afar for such

Optimistically presuming
that eventually this project is
■ successful, and the evening is
equally satisfactory, I again
reach a critical dilemma:
Should I ask the girl out for
the following weekend (an obvious indication, n a t urally,
that I have fallen head over
heels for her and am now completely at her mercy) ?
Or   should   I   allow   several
■ days to pass before making
another approach (apparently
showing that I feel comme-si,
comme-ca, and am really quite
indifferent about the whole affair)?
Usually, by this stage of the
game (what a game!) I've

Brock Hall Thursday.
The four panelists were Dr.

and professors W. G. Hardwick
and R. R. Jeff els.
Stewart   said   students   were
"ready  and  willing  to  make  a

He said students should watch
the budget coming down in the
legislature today.
Fred Fletcher, Ubyssey associate editor, asked what will happen if money from the government  isn't forthcoming.
The panel replied that UBC
will grow to unwieldy proportions.
Professor Baker of the English department said one method
of solving the problem would be
to limit enrolment at UBC, as
the report suggested.
"Perhaps we could hold the
enrolment at 2,500 per year instead of the 3,500 that we have
now," he said.
"This being the case students
might   have   to   go   to   Victoria

CAPRI isn't dead; it's been busy
Dr. Norman Alcock, the little man with a
big dream, returned to UBC Thursday.
A year after he enthusiastically announced plans for his now functioning Canadian Peace Research Institute he is a little
more realistic about the scope of his organization but just as confident that something can
be done in the cause of world peace.
Dr. Alcock is the Ontario chemist who
gave up a $15,000 a year defence job to devote his life trying to develop a scientific
And he and a full time staff of six—including scientists, a psychologist and sociologist—have accomplished much in the first
year of operation of the institute.
(According to Dr. Alcock, the question
of what ever happened to CAPRI, so often
asked at UBC, is a result of failure on the
part of the local press to report the results of
studies and research accomplished by his
So far, CAPRI has conducted an attitude-
study of Canadians in regard to defence, disarmament and peace. It has done specialized
studies of attitudes of government leaders,
businessmen and trade unions.

bilking the people of Canada out of a few of
their dollars. He is a dedicated man who believes he can aid the establishment of a world
peace and has shown that he has a plan which
can be made operative.

Decline of Union Nationale Party
The sudden death of Maurice Duplessis, founder of the
Union Nationale Party, provoked many complicated problems which were going to have
a drastic influence upon the
inner structure of his party.
The dictatorial powers assumed
by the "Chief" during his last
two terms in 'office had left
his cabinet ministers with a
serious lack of administrative
qualifications. fThis thought
disturbed especially the industrial magnates and the intellectuals who had unexpectedly
become very worried over the
outcome of their future dealings.
•    *    •
The   history    of   the   Union
Nationale Party between the
years of 1944 and 1959 shows
quite distinctly that as Duplessis was getting older his own
confidence in the members of
his cabinet decreased sharply.
A few ministers, however, had
managed to obtain some positive recognition from their
leader. One of them was Paul
Due to the extreme favoritism bestowed upon Paul
Sauve by Maurice Duplessis in
the latter part of the 1950's,
this minister had been rated as
the likely successor to the
founder of the Union Nationale
Party and thus when Duplessis
died the choice of a new leader
became very easy to make.
Immediately following his
election, Sauve set out to get
things moving as fast as possible in every department of
provincial affairs in order to
repair some of the damages
caused by the ineffective and
autonomist policies of Maurice
Duplessis. He realized the importance of giving his cabinet
complete freedom in their respective responsibilities. Time
Was much in prominence in
Paul Sauve's mind. He knew
that the party in power would
be required to call a provincial election very soon.
The p o s i tive leadership
shown by Paul Sauve had
operated a radical change of
attitude in the minds of the
minds of the voters who, at the
time of Maurice Duplessis'
death, were ready to kick the
Union Nationale Party out of
power and replace it by a new
government. The results which
he had achieved within weeks
of his election, especially in
the field of education concerning the federal grants to
universities, had greatly enhanced the chances of reelection   for  his party.
On January 2nd, 1960, some
one hundred days after his
election, stricken with a fatal
heart attack, Paul Sauve took
with  him   the   last  remaining
shreds of hope that were essential to the re-election of his
Sauve's untimely death
created confusion and turmoil
within ranks of the party.
Within a few hours of his death
two or three factions were already in the making. Most

graduate- student, Ray Noel.
two were the choices of the
divided younger members.
The party, however, because
of the serious splits degenerated from these many factions,
had to compromise and quite
surprisingly a complete newcomer was chosen. The third
Premier of the Province of
Quebec within five months
was Antonio Barrette. For
those well-informed on the
political situation in Quebec,
this choice was very difficult
to believe as this particular
man had been a strong opponent of Maurice Duplessis in
the early 1950's when the
"Chief   sought   to  implement
his own labour legislation regarding a strike in the Thet-
ford Mines area. This could
only mean that the Union Nationale Party had become
deeply divided within its own
ranks and that in consideration
of the subsequent elections the
existing factions had agreed to
present a united front in order
to make the most of what little
support may have been left
after Paul Sauve's unexpected
•    •    •
Since the gloomy years of the
late forties and of the early
fifties the Liberal Party in
Quebec had acquired new
strength through a complete
reorganization of its structure
and a bold political program.
During the years of Duplessis'
regime, the going had been
rough for the Liberals especially when Georges-Emile La-
palme was their interim leader.
Nothing could stop the Premier
in his savage attacks upon the
opposition party; he commonly
referred to the Liberals as
Communists who were seeking
to destroy all that was related
to the Catholic Church in La
Belle Province.
When one knows how much
influence he had on several
members of its clergy, it is very
easy to understand why he successfully dominated them particularly in the rural areas.
What I want to know is, if
words aren't enough, what
comes next?
Maybe we withdraw our ambassador from Washington. Or
we could put an embargo on all
American goods. Or we might
nationalize all industries in
which there is American capital. The RCMP might patrol
the border with machine guns.
• •    •
Whatever happens, we can be
sure that the U.S. won't like it.
Now, the fact that the U.S. government would not be in favor
of the idea doesn't bother me.
The government can do what
it likes. But what about the
American people? Some of my
best friends are American. I'd
hate to have that little blonde
down in Everett break off relations with me.
Actually, although we may
treat this as a joke, (we'd better, it's too scary to think about
seriously) it gives us food for
thought. Think about some of
the other leaders in history who
said things like "Mere words
will not suffice."
Hitler, for instance. He said
this when the Czechs 'invaded'
Germany. Or Kaiser Bill, when
the crown prince was assassinated. We all know what happened next.
• •    *
Now, I'm not saying that Mr.
Diefenbaker is trying to justify -
a war, but it seems to me that
he must have something in
common with these two men.
Like a nationalistic fervor, for
instance. Or an exaggerated
sense of his importance, or his
country's, or both.
We can imagine what would
happen if some country with a
population of 18 million somewhere in Europe said this.
• •    •
The whole world would
laugh, the leader would be deposed, and the subsequent
leader would apologize for his
predecessor's hasty words.
So I would suggest, when you
go to vote next April, vote for
a man who is good at apologizing.
We need him. Friday, February 8, 1963

Friday, they meet Central
Washington State at Ellensburg
while Saturday they travel to
Cheney to compete against Eastern Washington.
Birds have already met Central this year, winning 74-21,
but they don't know what to
expect from Eastern. Birds have
not met Eastern since 1961 when
they  lost  50-43.
These two meets will give
UBC much-needed practice for
the WCIAA championships in
Edmonton later this month.
Birds will be trying to find the
best man for each event. Much
is still undecided.
One thing the Birds lack is
depth. They will have to improve before the championships.
One bright spot is that diver
Bill McLean has rejoined the
team. In his second year with
the Birds, McLean will join ace
•diver Ray Harvey. Last year
McLean placed fourth in the
one and three-metre events at
the WCIAA championships.
Last weekend the Birds
swamped a disappointing Western Washington crew. Coach
Jack Pomfret was expecting a
much better showing from the
Bellingham college.
Last year Western gave the
Birds a good fight and lost by
only 52-43. This year Birds won
by an overwhelming score of
69-16. Double winners for the
Birds were Bill Campbell and
Bill Norquist.

Peter Mullins said, "and if we

If the game is played, it will
probably be here at UBC, where
better crowds are likely.
The three members of this
year's team who will not be returning next season —- Mike
Potkanjak, Keith Hartley and
Jack Lusk — will be presented
with awards at half-time in Saturday's  contest.
The Manitoba team is tied
for third place in the Western
Intercollegiate Conference.
Calgary's Lloyd Harris.
"We'll set Keith Hartley on
him," Mullins added. "Maybe

John Cook and Mike Potkonjak are the Birds leading scorers'
so far this year. They each have
66 field goals and 55 foul shots
in their first 16 games, for an
11-point  psr  game   average.
Cook is also the team's leading
rebounder, with 132 rebounds.

Hinds is rated fifth in Canada
in the lightweight (148 pound)

Two other outstanding UBC
lifters are Wayne Cannon (165

New NFCUS magazine
shucks money problem
Campus Canada has solved its financial problems, production co-ordinator Ed Lavalle said Thursday.
He said the NFCUS-published
magazine now will break even
with a minimum of advertising.
"What we've done", he said,
"is raise the price to 35 cents
a copy from 25 cents.'"
He said magazine distribution
experts had told him the magazine would be worth 50 cents
on the commercial market.
Editors had feared earlier that
the magazine would lose $1,000
through   lack  of  advertising.
Lavalle said this fear was not
justified because foundation
grants would probably have
made up the deficit.
Editor Fred Fletcher said any
measure limiting advertising
was good for the magazine.
"The magazine's real purpose
is to present controversial student thought — not to sell
things," he said.
The magazine goes on sale
about Feb. 25.
