AMS, BOARD NEGOTIATING
SECRET
SELLOUT BARED
Students to lose
Brock, new union
By TOM WAYMAN
Ubyssey Editor-in-Chief
The new $4.5 million student union building will revert
to the administration after 55 years if a, proposed agreement
between the AMS and the board of governors is ratified, The
Ubyssey learned Thursday.
The outline of the agreement was contained in a> secret
memo approved by student council in an in-camera meeting
held Thursday.
Included in the proposal to be considered Monday by
councillors and Feb. 1 by the board of governors, are agreements whereby:

• The AMS obtains a lease
of the SUB land — and hence
legal control of the building
— for 45 years with an option
on a further 10 years;
• Food services and a 6,000
square-foot banking area remain under the control of the
administration, food services
continually and the banking
facility for 45 years;
• Brock Hall with its student-financed $300,000 extension is given to the administration;
• A dispute over the size
of food services for the building is resolved, with the administration agreeing to provide the facility size the AMS
wished;
• Some student consultation
is provided for in the operation of the food service;
• Students are permitted to
pay for the building over an
additional three years — putting financing on an 18-year
basis;
• Essential services — heat,
light, janitorial services — are
to be provided free by the administration.
The Ubyssey was given the
contents of the confidential
memo by a student councillor
who asked to remain nameless.
"It's a real scandal," the
councillor  said.

$1  GAP FROM BLADEN, AUCC
Federal grant hiked $3
By PAT HORROBIN
Ubyssey Ottawa Bureau
OTTAWA — The federal per
capita operating grant for Canadian universities will be $5
for 1966-67, Prime Minister
Lester Pearson told the house
of commons Thursday night.
Both the Bladen Report and
the Association of Universities
and Colleges of Canada said a
$6 grant would be "urgently
needed" by then.
Pearson told The Ubyssey
the reason for the $1 gap is:
"We can't afford it."
The remark, in a house corridor interview, followed Pearson's first major address to
Canada's 27th parliament.
Pearson told the house that
proposed legislation covering
the $5 grant will apply to the
1966-67 academic year only
and will not affect any federal-
provincial   arrangements   that
may be agreed upon later.
Pearson told The Ubyssey a
federal-provincial conference
on education will be held in
March or April.
"The provinces have said
they are not yet ready to talk
on this subject," he said.
(If held too late, the conference would be after the B.C.
government has budgeted for
the 1966-67 academic year.)   -
UBC president John Macdonald described the $3 grant
hike as a "helpful temporary
measure".
He said: "It is crucially important that the provinces as
well as the federal governments recognize universities'
needs for annual increases in
financial support.
"In the light of premier Bennett's statement that education
is among his government's
highest priorities, we should be
able to anticipate a significant
increase in provincial support
to complement the federal government's  assistance."
If the per capita grant is
divided among UBC, Simon
Fraser and Victoria College as
it has been previously, UBC's
share of the federal money
will increase from $2.6 million
to $6.4 million.
The $1 shaving of Bladen's
recommendations on federal
aid came as a surprise here.
Pearson's former parliamentary secretary Jack Davis told
The Ubyssey Wednesday the
Bladen Report would be regarded "much as a royal commission."
The Liberal government's
throne speech promised "massive aid to education", and this
was interpreted here as probable fulfillment of the $6 grant
Bladen   said  was necessary.
Students get privilege
"By the time students found
out, it would have been approved by the board of governors and locked up tight.
"What the deal amounts to
is that students have the privilege of paying $4.5 million for
a building which will belong
to the administration 35 years
after it's  paid  for.
(A building constructed on
university land is — like Brock
Hall — legally under university rules. Thus, when the
AMS lease expires, the new
SUB will have the present
status of Brock Hall.)
SUB's 6,000 square feet of
banking area, controlled by
the administration, are part of
an already anounced agreement.
The Bank of Montreal, in
an agreement with the administration, gets 9,000 square feet,
of banking facility on campus
— 3,000 in the new administration building (to be built near
the new SUB) and the rest of
the SUB.
In return, the bank will pay
$202,000 to the AMS and $928,-
000 to the administration —
pre-paid rent for 35 years.
The $500,000-odd the admin-
I istration will  receive   as   pre
paid rent for the bank space
in the new SUB is considered
a student contribution to the
new administration building.
It is felt that if the Bank
of B.C. is implemented by the
Social Credit government,
UBC will be ordered to make
the new bank the university
bankers.

A minority group at UBC
has started a drive to impeach AMS president Byron
Hender.
Brian Staples, Eng. I, said
Thursday the First Year Engineer's executive is circulating a petition to have
council hold a referendum
to impeach Hender for inefficiency.
If enough students sign,
the referendum will toe presented to council Jan. 24.
Anyone willing may sign

VIC COUNCIL RETREATS
Pay fees', rebels told
VICTORIA (UNS) — Victoria College student council
Wednesday night backed down
on its fee fight and recommended students pay the $56
of their second term fees they
have  been  withholding.
But an ad hoc committee
has promised to support students who intend to continue
the holdback.
Victoria's student council
released Thursday morning a
motion recommending students
pay their fees in full by 4 p.m.
today.
Council had originally asked
students to continue withholding the $56 until Jan. 27, the
date the provincial legislature
opens.
Victoria student president
Paul Williamson explained
council feels it can no longer
ask 689 students to endanger
their academic year by placing
their  registration in  jeopardy.
Victoria's administration sent
out 689 letters Monday warning students of possible expulsion.
Williamson claimed council
members will continue to withhold $56 each but didn't say
for how long.

the resultant legal tangle with
the Bank of Montreal.
The AMS agreement with
the board of Governors allows
the 6,000 square feet of SUB
space to be leased to a bank
for 35 years, with an option
on another 10 years.
For the 10" years of the option, yearly rents from the
bank would accrue directly to
the AMS. After 45 years, the
space reverts to the AMS.
Extension of the SUB financing period is designed to
allow the AMS to meet spiralling construction costs without

FOR  UBC CHANCELLOR
Sun comes up
with Buchanan
Registration papers nominating fishing magnate  John
M. Buchanan for UBC chancellor will be filed next week,
the Vancouver Sun said Thursday.
In   a   page   one   story,   the       ■	
paper claimed current chancellor Phyllis Ross will not seek
another term.
The story said the nomination, signed by the required
seven members of the university convocation, will be filed
with registrar John Parnell
next week.
Nominations for the post
must be in by March 2. An
election, if necessary, must be
completed by May 25.
The story claimed the 69-
year-old Buchanan, holidaying
in Mexico, is willing to stand
for the post.
Buchanan, UBC class of
1917, is a former member of
the senate and board of governors, and a past president of
the alumni  association.
He retired as president and
chairman of the board of B.C.
Packers Ltd. in 1964.
Buchanan received the Great
Trekker award in 1951 for
outstanding service to UBC.

IF HE LIVED
IN FORT
McGregor might learn lesson'
By   PAT   HRUSHOWY
Fort Camp president Ralston Alexander said Thursday new residences director
Malcolm McGregor might
learn his lessons if he lived
in residences for a week.
It was suggested last week
in a Ubyssey editorial that
McGregor live in the residences for at least a week so
he could discover the problems a resident student faces.
Alexander said, "He is going into the job cold. To get
the feel of what is going on
he must stay here.
"I think one night would
be enough for him.
"When McGregor has eaten
here he has had the special
diet, not the going meal,"
said Alexander.
Totem president Don Mun-
ton said there were no real
problems in his residence ex
cept the building is too stark.
"I don't know what good
it would do but McGregor
might be able to see the student's view point," he said.
"I don't know how a fifty
year-old man would feel moving   with   a   bunch   of   teenagers."
Les Waldy, Acadia Camp
president, thought the suggestion was unreasonable from
McGregor's point of view.
"Idealy, it would be a good
idea," he said.
"But students wouldn't act
naturally if they knew McGregor  was down the hall."
Lower Mall president John
Woods didn't like the idea.
"McGregor is well aware of
the conditions of the residences now from talking to
the  students,"  he  said.
"Anyway, every residence
has different basic problems
so he would have to stay in
residences for four weeks."
Arts needs
profs—Healy
Arts students need more
profs says dean Dennis Healy.
Healy said Thursday there
are six departments in the
faculty with unsatisfactory student-professor  ratios.
'"The ratios range from 120
to one to 244 to one," he said.
The   failure   rates   in   the
faculty of arts are not alarming — about  15 per cent last
year," said Healy.
Science Dean V. J. Okulitch
earlier this week cited a 50
per cent failure rate in science.
OH, MAMMIES
Men love them
but women don't
Modern women require neither large mammaries nor
men for their happiness and well-being.
At least that's what one in- "««*•"»«> ««
dignant frosh  co-ed  wrote in
a letter to The Ubyssey, Thurs
day.
"We really don't have to
worry about pleasing men with
the size of our mammary
glands because our happiness
is no longer dependent on any
man," she wrote.
This reporter visited the
cafeteria to ask the opinions
of the men and women most
vitally concerned with this issue.
He immediately found a
number of girls already engrossed in the topic.
"Men need women and women need men," said one girl.
"Let's not have huge mammaries stand in the way of
happiness."
A slim co-ed, Honours English III, replied that this preoccupation   with   large   mam-
maries is not fair to flat girls."
"More is required in a relationship than just bust size,"
she said.
"After all, in this way
women are auctioned off like
cows."
Another cafeteria habitue
said, "The only substitutes for
men are gods and women."
"And until a greater supply
of gods is found, women will
have to be satisfied with men
despite their strange preoccupation with the breasts of the
beloved."
One very proper comment
came from a girl who seemed
far removed from the controversy.
"There's no place in marriage for them," she said.
"I mean, if I found a man
who was preoccupied with
them, I wouldn't think he was
marriage material."
POP ART includes commentary as well as expression of creative impulses, as shown in
this joint venture by Ubyssey photography editor Norm Betts and cartoonist Brett Smaill.
Inspiration for it came from frosh co-ed's flatly-worded letter-to-editor published

"It is not the contexture of words, but the
effects ot Action, that gives glory to the times"
—Samuel Daniel, 1603
Brock 'n Berkeley
The problems at Berkeley and the way in which
they were solved or settled have set the tone for student
action in this) country as well as the U.S.
This weekend's Education and Beyond conference,
held in Brock Hall, is presenting a balanced look at
the kind of problems which provoked the Berkeley
troubles, and the kinds of problems which are present
on this and other Canadian campuses.
We heartily recommend to every present or potential student leader to turn out to Brock today, Saturday
and Sunday.
We can guarantee he's going to learn something.
The evaders
Our friendly local provincial government is shot
through with Evaders — personalities ubiquitous within
the political profession.
From the all-encompassing explanation "no" preferred by liquor control board czar Donald McGugan to
the elaborate and ungrammatical non-answers spewed by
premier W. A. C. Bennett or highway minister Phil
Gagliardi, there is an evasion for every question put to
the government that it does not want to answer.
We are sorry to note education minister Les Peterson's entrance into the ranks of Evaders.
In Tuesday's meeting with Victoria's fee rebels, the
usually forthright minister came up with a classic non-
answer answer to the question of free university
education.
If governments paid the full cost of university education, Mr. Peterson said, they would increase their
control, over the institutions and could even dictate enrolment
Obviously.
The element of non-answer enters the picture when
you consider that the provincial government exerts extensive control over UBC right now.
If we are to believe our venerable board of governors, the last two annual fee raises were a direct result
of the government's non-fulfillment of UBC's requested
operating grant.
The provincial government throws the problem at
the head of the federal government, one of Evader
Bennett's favorite forms of non-answer.
If one returns to the original non-answer of Mr.
Peterson's fears of government control, one sees that the
financial control is already there.
It present a formidable roadblock to reasonable
accessibility — let alone universal accessibility — to
higher education.
For more money, Mr. Peterson, we would gladly
see your government try to find more stringent forms
of dictatorship toward those seeking a university education in B.C.

Some two columns ago,
while in the mental stupor

Some sweet

I (probably not
sweet as
" young) reads

the paper a

published in yesterday's
paper.
In this letter she mentions
that women no longer need
men.
After reading this, I am
struck by the idea that this
may be true. So I go over to
the biological sciences building and have a little conversation with one of my friends,
who is in the faculty.
You can see the result in
the picture above.
As a result of this experience, I can now conclusively
state that the writer of that
letter is wrong, wrong,
wrong. And also sick, sick,
sick.
As I am walking out of the
building I am accosted by an
old aquaintance. He didn't
seem to recognize me, however, a fact which surprises
more than somewhat, as we
have been talking just a short
while ago.
Any road, he comes over
and says "Excuse me, can you
tell me where the labs are in
this building?"
Now, this is so much pasta-
fazoola, as I happen to know
that this guy has been in Bio-
medicine for at least two
years, and maybe more.
But because I am interested
in seeing what is going to
occur, I say "I'm sorry, but
I'm a stranger here myself."
Now, at this his eyes light
up like Christmas and he says,
"In that case, maybe I could
take you to coffee."

The following fascinating
article, originally headed
"What is a boy friend really
like", is exerpted from the
Crest, published bi-monthly
by the Journalism Class of
Vancouver City College, under the direction of Eric Sanderson, instructor of journalism.
Between the bothersome
stage of adolescence and the
delightful factitude  of a fa
ther, we find a dreamy, jealous, but darling hunk of man
called a boyfriend.
Boys come in all types of
hotrods and clothes, but on
the inside they have the same
motto: "Go with as many girls
as you can, break as many
hearts as you can and hurt *
as many feelings as possible
without being made a fool of
or falling for one yourself."
He    likes    cars,    bowling,

parents or competition.
He is a charming creature

atom bomb and the qualities
of an innocent baby.
fee. And next thing I know
he has asked me out every
weekend from here to two
weeks Shrove Tuesday.
Now, this sounds attractive, especially since I know
I can see all the movies that
I've been wanting to see for
many moons, but I decide that
maybe I can get something
better. This guy just drives a
57 Chevy. (As you can see,
already I'm thinking like a
girl.)
So finally we leave the cafe,
and away I go to Brock Hall.
No sooner am I in the building than up comes Norm
Betts, who asks if I'd like to
be in The Ubyssey.
Now, I know Betts, and I
know The Ubyssey, and I
know that neither of them
has any money at all, so I tell
him thanks, but no thanks,
and away I go.
So the next guy I run into
asks me for coffee again, and
this guy hacks around in a
'65 E Type, which is by all
accounts a pretty nice car, so
I tell him I'm his forever, or
at least until Hooie Batman's
next spectacular is over. (I've
always wanted to see one of
those things without getting
a nose-bleed from the altitude
at the back of the QE.)
So after three hours I'm
out to dinner every night for
the next year, and no more
cooking, or anything else for
that matter.
And so the girl who wrote
the letter can go ahead and
get along without men. As
far as I'm concerned, they
can say anything they want
to about my attributes.
I'm just glad I've got them.  pf

People like, we under

Nobody else is himself
camp enough to do it.
The point is, Murray

Robert Duncan is a poet.
He is at UBC to direct a
reading of his play, Adam's
Way, included in this year's
festival of the Contemporary Arts.
These are excepts from
Duncan's mind, as played out
in an interview with pf's
Wayne Nyberg and Dennis
Wheeler.
He reads noon today, Bu. 102.
I'm fascinated by God because it is one of the larger
imaginations man has.
As with Whitehead, my
picture of the universe is
that it is coming into existence; it didn't get created
in the past.
'The most exciting idea
I've heard concerning God is
in Process and Reality of
Whitehead, in which God
exists in the uncreated which
lies ahead of us, not behind
us, and impinges at only one
place: the moment where we
are right now.
Our aliveness at this moment is our only experience
of God. The poem is one of
the means of being intensely
alive.
The conventional artist
takes a goal and labors toward it. Whenever I see a
goal I avoid it.
Through this things happen in the poem because I've
got to break the train of
thought that's going ch-ch-ch
to Chicago.
I'm not designing a train
line.
In other words I derail
and lose track of myself; I
delight in doing both of
these.
•      •      •
I don't understand why a
poet or a person making a
structure should have to
make it real.
We have a great premium
on reality at the present
time. In listening to my poetry one should be much
more interested in feeling
patterns.
The poem, right where you
are, and the impact of it is
what   I'm   concerned   with.
• •      •
It's mysterious to me when
I'm writing, how things organize, and what the thing
is in one that organizes.
I feel more like I'm discovering organizations than
creating them.
To go back to the idea of
God, I think that our conception of God and of how
things are created are basic
to our ideas of what we're
doing when we create.
Similarly, your idea of
what's happening in a poem
is related to your idea of
what's happening generally.
• •      •
The danger of a University having a Poet in Residence is that the poet really
has to be respectable. You
could not have Hart Crane
as a Poet in Residence.
The worst part of being a
student is that you have to
study tbe whole field. It
would be sickening to know
the whole field of poetry.
Instead of imagining your
reader to be someone intensely like yourself, sitting
and reading a book of poetry
somewhere in a little room,
you are forced to imagine
him as taking a graduate
course  in  English.
This is very disturbing to
your idea of why you wrote
the poem and what you
wrote it about.
ROBERT DUNCAN
...and his play
By ROBERT DUNCAN
The play Adam's Way is
on ideas of what Man is,
upon the ideas of Adam and
Eve, not only from Genesis
but also from gnostic gospels and from the imagination of other poets — so, my
play can be taken as a comment on Milton's Paradise
Lost.
The angels Michael and
Samuel (Satan) in the play
are the Good and Bad Angels of Adam.
It is seen in the middle of
the action as centering
around a seance, where Mrs.
Maybe appears as the medium — Madame Blavatsky
or Margaret Rutherford —
calling up the spirit of
Adam.
I've called it a Mystery
Play too, a kind of Everyman gone wrong or gone
wild. Yet does the audience
have to know all that? I
don't intend so.
When it comes down to
the facts of the case, Adam
and Eve are a young married
couple, Michael can be taken
as a marriage counsellor,
straight from God the
Father, with good intentions;
and Satan can be taken as
a marriage breaker, straight
from God the Father, with
disrupting intentions.
In a way I am related to
Brecht or Bernard Shaw —
my theater is a theater of
ideas. But unlike them I am
concerned with ideas that
are fantastic, not social or
historical but literally out
of this world.
It's not that I am not concerned about the world we
live in. In the poem Up Rising I've made my blast at
the evil force I believe Johnson to be, turning the force
of the American nation from
its    possibilities    of    world
brotherhood and tolerance of
a variety of ways of being
men to play the role of the
police state against other
men and against the idea of
Communism. What I mean
by Communism is rooted in
the Christian belief that the
world belongs to god and is
given to him to the brotherhood of men, and that the
labor of the individual belongs to the good of all.
Which I see as one of the
great creative ideas in man's
spiritual history.  Capitalism
. . . page friday exclusive
which is an exaggeration of
human greed and selfishness
and will to exploit is on the
contrary one of the doctrines
of Satanic perversion, destroying true individual volition.
So I see the war in Viet
Nam as a profound evil, an
evil at the level that has
poetic potentialities. But my
concern is not one of sides
— it has to do with the
cause of the spiritual world.
Like Dante, I believe
man's true nature can only
be found in freedom. And
modern war, war since the
French Revolution, violates
freedom in its conscription
of men who do not want to
fight, who are not called by
their inner spirit to be soldiers; and the national state
further must lie to justify
this conscription and usurp
the place of mankind itself
which is the only social
primary.
Even in Adam's Way, in
a world of ancient time and
supernatural scene, seemingly far from the present
day, the drama remains one
of freedom and concord, of
freeing one's self by undertaking the service of human
fulfillment, not self - fulfillment. Or, rather, I believe
there is no true human fulfillment that is not self fulfillment, no individual volition outside of the realization of the good of the
human communality, of our
common good as a species.

Purpose of education?    Making it marvel
By  DICK CLEMENTS
I live in a milieux of Totalitarian Purpose.
Insidious Hegelites are
everywhere affirming the
necessity, even the virtue, of
purpose.
If your mother says to
you, "George you have great
potential why don't you use
it," restrain your arm from
striking a heavy blow to the
mid-section of her torso.
When the leader of your
country says make this great
land greater, do not vomit.
Because your local existentialist priest says you too
save your soul, it is time to
turn in your Christian
Atheism button.
With suitable restraint
your latest psychiatrist will
absolutely affirm the soon-
to-be - realized purpose of
your comfortable psychic adjustment and as the preformed words tumble out of
his mouth hastily scribble
a symbolic doodle on your
forearm and leave the office.
Clever friends will soon
notice you nihilistic affirmation of the Universe and
subtly attempt to draw your
attention to: "You need purpose, George."
The foregoing paragraphs
are without purpose.
I too was once a college
undergraduate. Presently I
can say that I was once dropped out of the higher society of college and can
therefore be called, if you
want, a college drop-out.
The act of college registration and college resignation
are both without purpose.
College may or man not be
purposeful, but one thing I
know is for sure I find it
very  frightening.
So many unformed minds
grasping hunks of semi-processed knowledge upsets me.

Berkeley
By GABOR MATE
Since Berkeley the unwelcome of student revolt has
haunted university administrators throughout North
America.
The grim possibility of a
Berkeley-type protest movement at UBC has no doubt
occured to UBC president
John B. Macdonald.
He expressed such fears
when he spoke of "responsible" student action in his
welcoming address in the
armory. Berkeley, he told
us was not an example of
"responsible"  action.
This speech was rewarded
by a standing ovation from
the docile audience.

country of my choice.
Two weeks later I attempted suicide. The two acts are
not necessarily unrelated.
I can truthfully say today
I have no suicidal impulses
even though I am no closer
to understanding the purpose of Latin American history.
My personal purpose is in
no way connected with any
historical purpose whatsoever. My existence being unrelated to scientific facts of
most modern acceptance has
given me cause to worry
sometimes but I have consoled myself with the thought
though I may not have purpose,
pose I may have meaning.
Meaning is unrelated to
anything else by definition.
For those of you who accept
the existance of God, know
you cannot assign him a pur-
The multi-versity is even
more sickening than the university.
Multi-purpose is a hydra-
headed monster which will
only be defeated by refusing
to recognize its existence
as an illusion in the pablum
soddened brain of one Clark
Kerr.
I will recant the foregoing statement upon request, if accompanied by a
stamped self - addressed envelope to the editor of this
journal.
I admire restless ones who
justify their existence to
themselves by swallowing a
philosophical purpose as outlined by a great mind.
Personally I am still uneasy about my own existence. The encounter that one
makes with great minds in
the university is best left un-
described, so bad is its nature.
I am also relatively unaffected by social ambition
to  achieve some  degree:  of
Macdonald at the Bayshore
Inn a month later. For the
first time since his arrival
at UBC he had to face a hostile body of students, and
it was a shocked and em-
barrased John B. Macdonald
who stood there in the rain,
attempting to pour oil on the
troubled waters of student
discontent.
The march must have
seemed to him a direct reply
to his cautioning words
about "responsible student
action." It is well known he
had promised his fellow university administrators there
would be no March at UBC.
The march appeared all
the more ominous to him
since it was held despite the
determined opposition of the
AMS.
As at Berkeley, the protest arose from within the
student body, spontaneously,
and sincerely, and was not
council-imposed.
The students had, in fact,
repudiated their elected
representatives. In fact, perhaps it is not too far-fetched
to ask what the chances are
for a Berkeley-type insurrection at UBC.

statement in the aforementioned manner upon request.
I would like other people
to know I am here, however,

vanity.
I subscribe to the ideal of
a better realized objective

I   will   also   recant   this      erty,   no   more   junky   TV
We have the latent roots
that could rise to a student
protest movement of serious
proportions. Most obvious of
these is the fee question.
It is not difficult to envision a major eruption if
the fees are raised again in
the near future. The march
was a portent of that, and
the lonely protest of Victoria
students also serves as a
warning.
But it was not a fee issue
that set Berkeley students
to revolt and by itself, such
an issue would not be sufficient here.
The discontent goes much
deeper for they touch the
very concepts this university
operates on, the administration's philosophy of what the
university's purpose is.
UBC has an impersonality,
which arises not from its
size, but from the operative
principles that guide the administration.
One gets the impression
students are regarded as no
more than raw material, as
lumber in a furniture factory, out of which it is the
administration's task to manufacture chairs for society to
THE      UBYSSEY
sit on.
One gets his BA not for
any knowledge that he may
possess, but for having submitted to rules that require
him to spend a certain number of years at university,
to take a certain number of
prescribed courses, and to
receive a certain level of
marks on a certain number
of examinations.
The underlying theory Is
that anyone who has successfully fulfilled all requirements has the capability, and the mentality, to
be a "useful citizen."
For if pure knowledge was
the sole criterion, then students would not be required
to take this many courses
and write that many tests,
they would simply be examined orally, and in writing, as to what they know.
Instead of having to absorb the philosophy of Plato
by 9 a.m. on April 20, they
could study whatever they
wanted and take as much
time as they wanted to study
it.
When they felt they knew
their subject, they could take
the   examination.   Then,   if
shows. This seal  is not my
purpose, however.
I think to some degree the
products of rational intellects can be exposed and
transferred to another rational intellect.
If you're still human that
is, after filing the 142nd
paper putting down Bergson
or Aquinas in a manner
deemed acceptable to a person who did it in an acceptable fashion twenty years
before.
The university is so infected by the poisonous
mediocrity of the city and
state surrounding it that any
self - improvement course is
bound to fail, simply because
the majority of human
beings have never felt the
need for self - improvement,
do not feel the need for self-
improvement, and will not
feel the need for self-improvement.
In twenty years the ma-'
jority of human beings will
be in university. I am not
an elitist but I am afraid of
the steam - rolling levelling
tactics by the masses increasingly realized since the
end of the nineteenth century.
I am afraid, I use jargon
when I talk about them as
the sentence before this one
shows.
Intellectual pursuits are
necessarily individual ones,
just as a bowel movement
has to be done by you alone,
so does reading a book.
All movements of moral
regeneration or generation in
the university will fail and
the student body as a body
will never accept a general
purpose in any fashion related to the Big Society.
I am not against teach-ins.
The next time someone
asks you about the Purpose
of Education tell him "To
make mine Marvel".
they were knowledgeable,
they would be given their
degree.
In the degree factory the
individual is lost, and individual human values are
lost. The individual is seen
not in terms of his own progress and self - betterment,
but in terms of his usefulness to society. This, then, is
the "multiversity issue."
By its very nature, it is
intangible, and not necessarily a conscious obstacle to
self-realization in the eyes of
many students. But it does
exist, and it lies at the root
of student discontent. It is
exploded into public view
during the Berkeley crisis,
it has entered the consciousness of many North American students.
With the spark of another
fee increase, it might be the
dynamite that will shock
UBC students into even
greater degrees of "irresponsible" action than the Student's  Day march.

IN HONOR: No, fans,
honorary scienceman John
Macdonald was NOT at the
ill-fated smoker Tuesday
from whence a slightly
nude dancer was arrested.
About half the more-
than 600 youths jammed!
into the hall weren't sciencemen, honorary or
otherwise, they -were education and Simon Fraser
boys.
They were also ill-lbehav-
ed and juvenile, a study in
contrast with the well-
managed engineering
smoker.
INSIDE: Strange-looking
gent with the sherlock-
holmes coat and the long
hair is San Francisco poet
Robert Duncan, one of the
Ginsbergian^Black Mountain school.
Duncan doesn't think too
highly of the local talent,
at least as expressed in the
creative Writing department.
"Students gotta read
what teachers are writing,"
he says. Apparently he's
not too keen on how the
teachers are writing, to put
it mildly.

Cruise. "In honor of your
outspokeness and! your definite stands on student

For   president    Blunder -

Murray Farr, his was a
zany intellect who did the
campus well in bringing
many and! varied events
and entertainments here.
On the other hand, his
idea of a joke was to phone
an acquaintance in Toronto at his place of work
— collect, of course — for
no good reason but to hear
how said acquaintance was
going to explain the unwarranted "personal" call
to an irate superior.

IN MEMORIAM: As president John Macdonald said
of the death last spring of
brilliant young  arts  dean
Kaspar Naegele, "No one
will know what could drive
a man to such a terrible
decision."
The same could be said
of chem prof Harry Daggett, found dead last week
in a downtown hotel room,
or of acting chem head W.
C. Bryce, whose body was
found beside the Fraser
River in 1964.
More than a few concerned students and faculty are seriously wondering
just what it is that's driving these men to these decisions.
INNUI: Latest (yawn)
red-hot word on the fiery
election race for AMS playpen positions is that dark
horse Gabor Mate is definitely going for the first
veep slot.
Seven-year power planner Ed Lavalle is still waffling around, the presidential ring, hat in hand.
His waffle's got a wobble, however, with the
word that the pink panthers of Ad Hocsdom won't
support him if he does run.
INTRIGUE: Organizers
of a UBC expedition to a
certain Idaho ski resort received more than a Christmas card from the resort's
owners.
Drafted toy some high-
powered legal talent, the
message assesses the students for damages for sundry misdemeanors. For a
clincher, it advised that if
damages were not paid in
full the students' names
would ibe submitted to president John Macdonald.
Our heroes, after doing
a little legal legwork themselves, shot back a report
that they were unabashedly not guilty.
Their clincher was that
if Idaho legal talent didn't
lay off, the students would
be forced to report them to
their president, Lyndon B.
Johnson.
IN LINE — Time to
nominate another chancellor to replace Phyllis Hoss.
Maybe Nat (finger lick-
in') Bailey could do something about food services,
or perhaps Val (remember
the times) Warren could
show the university how
to make   money.
The best deal, though,
would be ex-president Dr.
Norman Mackenzie.

editors — from the loafer's

How to keep in the pink
By H. MICHAEL WILLIAMS
NEWS ITEM: "A Vancouver man apparently under
the influence of the hallucination-causing drug LSD was
taken to hospital early today after going berserk.
"Police said they found
the man, clad only in his
pants, running around in the
1600 block Yew shortly after
3 a.m., screaming that he
was God.
"The man, aged 36, was
frothing at the mouth, had
a wild-eyed appearance, and
was completely devoid of
reason, police said."
—The Sun, Jan. 17, 1966, Page 2
• •       •
Well.
A perfect specimen of the
leftnik syndrome if I ever
saw one (the wierdie-beardie
editor of this paper prefers
to call them "the New Left").
Wild-eyed, frothing at the
mouth,,and — yup — completely devoid a"f reason.
I should perhaps point
out, in order/to clarify my
position, that the closest I
have ever come to the Left
is last weekend, when I
played Left End in the West
Locaron Beach Touch Football tilt. I am no more reactionary than my right
knee when the doctor hits it
with a rubber hammer. I
have always been told that
you can take everything that
is purposeful, true-blue, red-
blooded and otherwise
worthwhile in life, and after
that, you have what's Left.
Anyway, at the risk of
being declared an Old Fogey
at my tender age, I shall let
you in on a few excerpts
from my latest Hate Manual,
entitled How to be a Leftnik in the Right Way, or:
Bob Dylan is a Dirty Capitalist  in NDP   Clothing.
• •      •
1.    NAMES
Leftniks used to be called
beatniks, but that term is
now tainted with age and
scorn. It has gone the way
of the Dodo and The Big
Bopper. It is still proper,
however, to refer to them as
peaceniks, vietniks, picket-
niks,   ban-the-bombers,   and
war
NDPs (all are synonymous).
Recently, in a subtle move
to gain respectability, these
leftniks have infiltrated the
ranks of the legitimate, and
now call themselves students, student activists, hu-
manitarians, and peace
corpses. Watch out for these
last kind. They are deadly.
• •      •
2.    DESCRIPTION
You know what beatniks
look like. Sandals and the
works. And the Stones. Well,
that's passe now. If you want
to be a New Leftnik, you've
got to be Joe College. Ties
and corduroy jackets, but
don't cut the hair or shave—
and keep the ol' NDP
chicken-foot buttoned on the
left lapel.
You can't be grubby, because newspapers have had
enough of that passive-resist-
ance-at-Comox bit. Must look
like Angry Young Idealist.
Everyone likes angry young
men, even John Diefenbaker.
• •      •
3.    HABITAT
Since the New Leftnik's
supreme aim is to be accepted, he has infiltrated most of
the nice, innocuous "causes"
such as education, peace,
poverty, and helping under-
developed nations. Just
about beats Motherhood.
They get pictures on the society page, and good marks
on sociology essays, because
Leftniks understand people
so well.
They form their own
groups (SUPA), and infiltrate the established do-nothing associations (such as CUS
and CUP). They become editors of student newspapers
— a great spot from which
to mould the angry image.
Most of all, they gravitate
to the universities, because
that is the place where you
can do the least work at the
least possible cost, with the
greatest publicity (all university causes are good), and
the least worry. This is why
so many professors are leftniks — they've never been
able to shake the soft life.
You know the old truism:
Them as can, do; others
teach. Great appeal.
• •      •
4. BEHAVIOR
Leftniks, of course, pursue as idealistically and as
differently as possible, their
particular cause. Peace is a
good one, but it's sort of
stale. No one cares about
napalm anymore. But
action's the thing — action
and change at any cost. The
newspapers  love  it.
• •      •
We have professional
peaceniks now — the SUPA-
men, who are even paid to
fester as they roam from
coast to coast on fat expense
accounts. The new leftnik
doesn't soapbox anymore —
he sits in his office writing
press releases. Above all, he
must do his best to stir up
marches, pickets, angry
newspaper stories, and generally keep his wierdie-
beardie image in shape by
offending the establishment.
• •      •
5. CARE & FEEDING
The leftnik thrives best
under conditions of a.) free
college tuition — he is the
world's number one freeloader; b) extravagant publicity; c) public outrage; d)
dandruff; and e) a dank,
basement suite just off campus.
If removed from the
mother womb, the university, he will likely die, or at
least shave.
• •      •
6    FUTURE
Leftniks would all love
to be like Tommy Douglas,
the Robin Hood of Coquit-
lam, who is the Ultimate
Legitimate Leftnik Wheel.
Well-paid, espousing every
cause that has ever been
espoused, no responsibility,
lots of publicity, and hated
by the Establishment. Why,
it even beats toeing a professor or a SUPAman.

SANS IDENTITY
The strategy of compromise: tactically changing
By HARDIAL S. BAINS
The accepted thing in
social, political and personal life is to COMPROMISE.
One must not go too far—
extremism of all kinds is
unhealthy. Does it not follow that extremities of compromise must be unhealthy
too?
Personally, I loath compromising freedom of
thought and action. The
compromising reader will
have to exercise his diplomacy if he wishes to appreciate my prejudice against
compromise.
Logistically, the process of
compromise involves concessions, give and take between
human   beings.
As individuals we compromise what we are; what
we are not; what we ought
to be; what we ought not to
be; what we cannot be; and
what, after all, we remain.
A society's compromises
entail its acceptance and rejections according to intrinsic rules and regulations.
Since I, like* the reader,
live as a member of a society, how free am I to assert
my prejudices on the subject of compromise?
Why should I compromise? What am I compromising and for what? How best
can I achieve the compromise? And how do I compromise with the idea of compromise?
Who controls and directs
the phenomenon of compromise? Do I? Am I free
to choose if I am to be socially bound or not? If not,
pf 6ix
am I aware of the contradictions which arise from my
personal confrontation with
ethics, morality, and religiosity of society? If so, how do
I compromise with these
contradictions?
Either I am an exclusive
compartment unaffected by
the activities of other individual human components
of my society, or I am naive
and have no facility for the
tenuous and sensitive understanding of my milieu.
But I am not an isolated
unit; on the contrary, I am
the product of an infinite
number of historical units.
I am compromise, of a certain kind: a kind that knows
that its, unity of structure
has come about with the
unity of historical moment.
But is there not a possibility of dissimilar historical
moments?
Perhaps what is dissimilar
is not the historical moment
but human reaction to such
moments. Any contradiction
in the historical reality of
any given segment of time is
lent by the ethical, moral,
and religious interpretations
of the non-revolutionary
forces within one's society.
These forces tend to clothe
each historical event with a
narrow identity. This somewhat false, overriding identity, once thrown off, leaves
the historical moment sensitive to change, to diversification.
The pursuit of identity
undertaken by historical
units in any one historical
moment is varied and
changeful. Two friends may
wander in more than one
direction after their meeting.
This possibility of variation endangers the establish-
Page  10
ed identity of the society;
therefore, conservative
forces are always rallied and
waiting to subdue the forces
of change. By annihilating
all but one direction for the
historical units the power
elite institutionalizes the
methodology of social concern.
Why do we not remember
that all people contain some
degree of benevolence and a
creative interest in social
welfare? Why must the
power elite be allowed to
select a partial identity from
the historical moment?
By accepting a false identity they compromise their
individual creativity. However, a society contains
forces of revolution as well
as forces of conservation.
One identity can be replaced
by another.
Revolution imparts new
identity to the historical moment and prevails until it is
overwhelmed by further
revolutionary forces. We
compromise to this cyclic
battle between change and
status quo.
We classify societies into
gradations of status quo in
terms of change.
If a society compromises
with change under rigid
control what kind of society
will it be? How far can the
individuals in such societies
compromise? Their choice of
action is limited to reform
within the accepted frame of
reference.
Can there exist a society
in which the direction of
change is undefined? Some
people, believing that the
status quo moves, will answer yes. I believe such a
society will ultimately succumb to the demands of its
existing identity; it will
change the mask of its historical moment accordingly.
Identity then, is a hindrance
to change. Let us do away
with identity, with all name
tags; let us compromise to
the facelessness of our historical moment and perhaps,
in our reality, we, the members of a culture as historical
units, may experience freedom of movement.
"But," the reader may exclaim, "we need identity to
survive. We don't need your
idea of free movement because our society has well-
defined ethics, morality, and
religiosity." My reply would
be: Can't we limit our individual freedoms of idenity,
and control these freedoms
so that they do not interfere
with our freedom of thought
and action?
If we can achieve this
compromise the resulting
journey, the freedom from
identity shall reveal the
answers to questions of his-
THE       UBYSSEY
torical moment, shall make
us and our societies compromise our paradoxical 'becoming', and shall allow us
to confront the annihilating
despair with which we were
born.
People tell me human beings who are strong and
smart rule the world. But
they never tell me the attributes of smartness.
Can a blind man rule the
world? Yes, if he has smart
people around him, they
reply. This smartness, I believe, is an abstracted thing
— an object like a nuclear
bomb. Incompatibility is
used like a bomb. Under the
hoax of incompatibility, excuses are made for one's im-
potencies.
The compromise can only
be conceived as a living
phenomenon if human beings are willing to grant
others the choice of disagreements and compromise to
live with.
We don't accept disagreements, we recognize them.
We keep isolating true and
false disagreements; thus we
develop a system of living
compromises, agreements of
disagreements.
One must not confuse for-
m a 1 political agreements
with informal recognition of
an agreement in disagreement.
Formal political party
agreements cannot embrace
individuals who use compromise of party platform
as a political tactic.
Compromise is a strategy;
it is strategy of life. Tactics
can be used as tools only to
the extent of convincing the
contrary-minded of the fallacy of their stand.
I will not sacrifice my
political strategy for the
sake of getting along with
my tactics. Tactics help me
in the destruction of adverse
influences and I use strategy
for the reconstruction of
new tactics, assuring the
change in compromise in
doing so.
Thus I compromise my
total existential life and develop myself as a tactic only
to be destroyed by the
strategy of continual change.

event.
Friday, January 21,  1966 Up to the neck in happy days
By   STEPHEN  BROWN
Samuel   Beckett's   Happy
Days is a  bold,  stimulating
piece   of  theatre  —  but  it
can't be called a play.
Stage action is almost nonexistent. The chief character, Winnie, is buried up to
HAPPY DAYS, by Samuel
Beckett; at the Freddy
Wood Theatre nightly
until   Saturday;   see   it.
her neck in the ground
throughout.
She delivers what amounts
to a two-hour dramatic monologue, interrupted only by
a few grunts and monosyllables from her dormant husband Willie, the only other
character.
To maintain the audience's
interest,    such    potentially-
pathos of housewife-ish semi-
existence that she brings to
bear in Beckett's monologue
must be her crowning
achievement.
A woman of about 50.
in act one Winnie can use her
arms and a toothbrush,
toothpaste, pocket mirror,
revolver, parasol, knapsack,
spectacles and a flowery hat.
Her husband Willie, about
60, played by Tom Hughes,
is reduced to crawling on all
fours and "he never was
much of a talker", but he is
her only source of happy
days because he's someone
who is listening to her—at
least partially.
Though he doesn't have
to, Willie also spends most
of his time in a hole, usually
going in head first.
But the play ends hopefully: Willie makes the supreme effort to crawl
around and look his wife in
the face and speak her
name, and she sings him a
song from the heart.
Beckett seizes the extreme
possibility of the theatre in
Happy Days because to him
the human situation is an
extreme one.
But we are not left to ask
"What's it meant to mean?",
as the last human being to
pass toy asked when he saw
Winnie imbedded in the
plain.
What Winnie says and
does — or fails to do — is
too familiar, too close to
home, for that.
theatre
dull staging needs a vitally
stimulating script and an in-
spired and accomplished
actress to deliver it.
The play inflicts a tremendously heavy burden on
its lead role — even the elementary step of memorizing
the two-hour monologue
must be a monumental task.
And that task pales compared to acting it out with
use of little else than facial
expressions and voice.

herself an actress of great
feeling over and over again

Man if I'm pissed off, I got reason
By CLAIRE WEINTRAUB
I was walking about the
campus this morning, in moderately organized circles,
thinking of all the things
that one ought to do on any
given day — like studying.
I know what I'm going to
do  —  Nothing.
I am just going to stand
here and sift out the fine
streams of dust from the air
by the invisible hairs in my
nostrils until I get the message from the bloody blue
sky.
Then I think Claire, you
idiot, it's too damned late
for you to become a believer.
You are an atheist and a
fire-fighter, and there is no
reason on this earth for you
to suddenly turn into a mystery.
Having heard the word at
last, I make it with dubious
finality over to the edge of
the earth and fall over.
The foghorns have stopped for the day.
Life is on the house this
week. Just ask for information at your friendly neighborhood  policebooth.
I've thought it was going
to be a good morning all
day, and it's nearly afternoon and for Christ's sake
it's just awful.
Everywhere I go people
have got this mysterious
smile around the mouthedge,
like they're saying to themselves, Spring and such.
Rot. Humbug.
It  isn't  going  to  happen.
whimsy
Easter is not going to occur
this year.
Have you ever noticed
how a day without rain
makes everyone on campus
look suddenly human?
Think I may become a collector of fireflies. For
twenty-five cents a bottle I
could live like a king of turtles in Wood's Hole.
Now I have had  it.
The absolute ultimate in
gall and how to get pissed
off good and proper on a
given Wednesday afternoon.
Phone call for Page Friday. I'm the only one around
so I answer it. Turns out to
be a "Mr. Anonymous" who
says our reviewer Al Francis sneaked his Juliet of the
Spirits review (PF Jan. 7)
from some magazine.
"What magazine?"
"Sorry, I can't say."
"Who   are  you?"
"Sorry I can't say."
"Well, what the hell can
I do for you? Are you coming in here with the magazine, are you going to gripe
to Al, are you out of your
frigging mind, man?"
I can't take it.
Really, when it comes to
anonymous phone calls, like,
what's  the  point?
Quit denying yourself the
luxury of hand to hand
battle. If you've got something to say, state your name
and case, but for Chrissake
quit shying away from the
facts.
So the upshot is the guy
doesn't know whether she's
going to come in with the
magazine or mail it in, and
I am left with the disturbing presence of a telephone
voice unattached to a face
or a name and a date that
hasn't been set — a commitment to a disturbance, a
commitment in very real
terms to an act which somehow falls short of conscious
conscience.
He finks off, and says he
doesn't know, he isn't liberty to say, he'd rather not
commit himself.
What in God's name is go
ing on here?
Are we or are we not members of a civil society, committed to certain prior
rules of existence? Do we
or do we not forego certain
rights and priveleges when
we choose to make our wants
and grievances known to
other people and do we or
do we not thereby entitle
ourselves to - some kind of
due and prior compensation
for our willingness to participate in the functionals and
reasonable demands of human society?
Man, if I'm pissed off, I
got reason.

THE      UBYSSEY
Page  11 UBCs  OWN
Composed prof makes music
By  DOUG  MUIR
This is the first in a series
of interviews with composers
living and working in the
Vancouver  area.
Pf: what significant changes
have you noticed in contemporary musical tastes in Vancouver?
Weisgarber: Since 1960
the most exciting musical
development has taken place
right here on the university
campus. The concert life of
Vancouver has remained essentially very conservative
and less adventurous than
that of the university, where
you don't have to worry
about the box office. Here on
campus our job is to insure
the hearing of as much new
and unusual music as possible. The fantastic growth
in our music department has
produced new and exciting
musical aspects which, in
many respects, are far more
interesting and adventurous
than those seen in any other
Canadian  school  of music.
Pf: What are Vancouver's
chances of becoming an influential centre for the atrs
in Canada?
Weis: Very good. But Vancouver must be realistic. It
tries to emulate Toronto or
New York or London, but
really can't. However it can
do a good job at being Vancouver and developing certain characteristics which are
unique.
Pf: Do you find much difficulty in having your own
works performed publically
in  Vancouver?
Weis:   No.
In North America the aristocratic art of the patronage system has never existed.
Instead the mantle has fallen
upon the universities. Most
composers in N. America
find a great outlet in the
university, which attracts
performers who are interested in new and different
things. CBC has also done
enormous work on behalf of
the composer. I never look
for commercial concerts because I don't write commercial music. Most of my music
would frighten lots of - audiences away just because it's
different.
Pf: How has Vancouver in-
WEISGARBER and MUIR
. . . musically speaking
—norm   betts photo
music
fluenced   your   composing?
Weis: I don't think a composer escapes his environ
ment. I have always formed
an identity with the natural
world. This does have an
effect on my music, but I
don't know just how.
Pf: What is your philosophy of music?
In a way art isn't philosophy. When the artist begins to philosophize and intellectually too much he
runs into the danger of self-
conciousness. The artist has
to maintain a child-like response to things, direct and
unaffected. I don't think this
can be called a philosophy.
Pf: What has been the
greatest influence on your
composing?
Weis: Living. Music is a
way of life, and composing
is only one facet of musical
experience. I compose, I follow certain scholarly pursuits, I teach. I live in a number of levels of music. But
all of these things in a way
tend to influence each other.
MOR MORE MORE wF xe
Music breeds music.
Pr: 1T0 what do you attribute your close asociation
with Japanese music?
Weis: I discovered that in
the various aesthetic values
of the ancient Japanese there
were certain ideals which
were well codified by the
Zen thinkers of the Muro-
machi Period (13th. & 14th.
Cents.) I confronted these
things with a shock of recognition because I found that
they were saying the things
that I had been thinking,
even in my childhood. It
started as a hobby and now
its become a second profession.
Pf: Do you find  yourself
more at home in any one particular  idiom?
Weis: No. I have written
for all idioms except the
opera, and I may try my
hand at that now that we
have an opera workshop
here on campus. The theatre
has always interested me
very much, and I have done
incidental music and complete musical productions on
educational TV in the States.
Literature, theatre and all
the  arts have been  a  great
source of inspiration for me.
I see music as being inseparable  to all the arts.
Pf: What do you believe
is the present relationship
between composer, performer and audience with regard
to your works?
Weis: With regard to my
music I always have an audience. All of my works written in the past ten years
have been performed because I must know in ad
vance who the performer is.
I must assess the personality
of the person for whom I
am writing as well as the
nature of his instrument. The
medium is an extremely important point in the making
of a piece of music.
Pf: Do you foresee a
change  in  this  relationship?
Weis: I don't know. People
are always going to listen to
Composer Elliot Weisgarber is an associate professor
of music at UBC. Before he
came to UBC, he taught al
the Universities of North
Carolina and Southern California.
music. But one of the biggest problems has been the
rise of commercial concerts
because they develop a particular aspect of music to
the exclusion of everything
else. New music is more or
less un-adventurous and is
kept outside, and so the contemporary composer has a
relatively ' small audience.
But this is not necessarily a
bad thing. There are all
kinds of art. Some are is
highly aristocratic, and some
art has broad appeal. This is
seen even within the works
of one composer. Bela Bar-
tok's Concerto for Orchestra
is a work of broad appeal.
On the other hand his 3rd.
and 4th Quartets are never
going to have this appeal
yet they require a fair
amount of musical sophistication.
Pf: Have you considered
working in the field of electronic music?
Weis: I would find this
very difficult. I like instruments, and to be able to
handle them gives me a certain sensuous pleasure. What
attracts me in electronic music is the vast realm of new
sound which it opens. This
influence is seen clearly in
my Ongaku: Four pieces in
the Japanese Spirit.

Letters:  LSD users
should watch psyches
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
Recently a number of UBC
students and faculty members
have been exposed to the
blandishments of those who
extoll the psychedelic experience as offering an enlarged
view of "reality" and a promising channel to rewarding
human relationships.
A cult with its own peculiar mystique has emerged
among the users of these
agents.
The ingestion of lysergic
acid diethylamide (LSD) and
related compounds produces
profound alterations in mood
and perception, accompanied
by vivid hallucinations. Those
who suffer from spontaneous
symptoms of this sort are
considered to be .psychotic or
insane.
A sense of compassion and
a due regard to the rights of
others lead some understanding and sympathetic adults
to adopt permissive attitudes
toward experimentation with
LSD and similar drugs,
whereas others with more
Calvinistic tendencies display
a harsh and vindictive response.
Without in any way intending to be condescending,
my own feeling of responsibility prompts me to call attention to the possible hazards
of casual experimentation
with hallucinogenic or psy-
chotogenic agents, so that
those who are tempted by
them will be aware of the
risks which may be involved
in their use.
Goodman and Gillman, in
their outstanding reference
work, "The Pharmacological
Basis of Therapeutics", call
attention to reports of attempted suicide and of cases
presumably resulting in permanent psychosis as the result of using LSD.
Considerable evidence
exists that for some individuals LSD and related substances can produce serious
untoward psychological effects. The incidence of severe,
prolonged adverse reactions
may be substantial in emotionally disturbed individuals,
and susceptibility to such adverse reactions cannot now
be determined in advance.
Caveat emptor!

'NO DISGRACE'
Editor, The Ubyssey, Sir:
During the Christmas exam
period I overheard one of the
faculty members comment
that  the  armory  was  a  dis
grace to the campus and how
unfortunate it was that there
was no better place to conduct so many of the university activities.
It was only then that I
realized how few of the faculty and students were
aware of the generosity and
foresight of the former students.
In 1928, four years before
an Austrian paranoic paper-
hanger became a German citizen, Lt. Col. H. T. Logan together with Lt. Col. G. M.
Shrum conceived the idea of
an Armoury for the campus.
Ever since 1928 the members of the COTC voluntarily
waived their headquarters pay
to which they were annually
entitled.
The money was put into a
fund and by 1941 the COTC
members had raised over
$50,000 to build an armory
for not only their own vise
but also for all students and
faculty as well as other organizations outside the university.
On a bright Saturday afternoon on Nov. 22, 1941, the
COTC and the Basic Training Battalion now 1,500
strong, marched into their
armory and during an impressive ceremony, attended by
Lt. Gov. Woodward, Lt. Col.
G. M. Shrum, the Commanding Officer of the COTC, turn
ed the keys of the armory
over to Chancellor R. E. McKechnie, officially making the
armory a university-owned
building.
The armory is the building
on the campus of which the
students can be most proud,
for it stands as a monument to
generosity,    patriotism    and

foresight on the part of the
young. Their gift to the university has gone unrecognized
by even a plaque.
These generous gentlemen
include men you may know
like Bob Bonner, Eric Nicol,
E. Davey Fulton and others.
Then there are some you
couldn't know like Ken McBride, president of the AMS,
Don Ferguson, Wilf Pickell
and Hugh Cooke. They were
killed in action.
When I see the armory, I
think of those wild days when
devastation rained from the
skies and these youths who
waived their pay, then volunteered to fight, and die, or
the freedom of later students,
on the beeches of Calvados,
the Mountains at Cassino, and
the forests of the Rhine.
This armory can never be
a disgrace. It can be an inspiration.
Today some monies still re
main and are still used for
bursaries and scholarships for
students.
Today a different flag flies
over the armory and the campus. Does it fly over the same
type of generous, patriotic
and foresighted  men?
Only you know the answer.

P.S. I am pleased to note
in Thursday's Ubyssey that at
last some recognition is being
shown to this student gift.

titled Education and Beyond
won't be dominated by radicals.
Program coordinator Randi
Enomoto of the sponsoring academic activities committee,
said Stephen Weisman will be
the only really radical speaker
at the conference to be held
at UBC this weekend.
Weisman was a leader in
the Free Speech movement at
Berkeley and a leader of the
San Francisco Viet Nam Day
Committee.
He was released from jail
there recently.
He  had   been   incarcerated
on trespassing charges arising
out of a demonstration accusing   general   Maxwell   Taylor
of war crimes.
"The program is well balanced by the other speakers,"
Enomoto said.
President John Macdonald
has spoken out against what
he calls student lawlessness
such  as that  at Berkeley.
Dr. Joseph Tussman, philosophy    department    head    at
Athletic department
seeks public support
Non-student athletic cards are being promoted in earnest
this year.
"These cards have been available for at least ten years,"
said athletic director R. J. Phillips, "tout this year we decided
to promote them and use the
money to print the Thunderbird."
The Thunderbird. appears
every Wednesday and publicizes coming events like the
U of Hawaii basketball games
on January 24 and 25.
"This card permits one person to enter all events for
$6.50," he said. "Our biggest
problem has been convincing
firms that it isn't some kind of
a gimmick."
"We don't expect to continue
publication past the end of
February since the cards have
not been selling too well," said
Phillips.
Berkeley, is a widely respected scholar.
Dr. C. Y. Gonick, professor
of economics at the University
of Manitoba and editor of the
magazine Canadian Dimensions, has recently returned
from Cuba.
Dr. A. D. Scott, economics
head and David Donaldson an
economics professor will be
speaking on the economics of
a university.
Economics professor, Dr.
John Young, along with Macdonald is one of the two people
whose presence wasn't arranged by Enomoto.
Other speakers will be Canadian Union of Students president Patrick Keniff and Dr.
Paul Ivory  of UCLA.
The program starts at 8:30
a.m. Saturday and 10:30 Sunday in Brock.
PAARLAUFS EVEN
Thinclads leave
blocks Saturday
By HAL ARMSTRONG
UBC's track and field Thunderbirds will be up against
tough competition Saturday in their first meet of the season.
Lionel Pugh expects to field
a strong squad to face the pressure from the Lower Mainland's four major clubs, one of
which is expected to enter
world-record holder Harry Jerome in the 60-yard dash.
The feature events of the
morning meet are the European men's and women's paar-
laufs in which nine competitors
from each club run 50 yd. relays.
The team covering the furthest distance in 15 minutes
wins.
Mainland track buffs will be
observing with interest the outcome of this venture by Pugh
in sponsoring the event for the
first time on the Continent.
UBC's solid 60 yd. sprint section with Chip Barrett, Claude
Marsden, and Tom Morgan will
be reinforced in the 330 yd.
and 6160 yd. distances by newcomers Jim Hawke, late of Oregon, and freshman Dave Aune,
UBC's top quarter-mile prospect this year.
Records of six feet and above
are expected in the high jump
from UBC's Sam Vandermeu-
len.
Middle-distance man Bob
Tapping and Sean Duffy will
be taking on Vancouver Olympic's Terry Dooley, one-time
vanquisher of the great Peter
Snell, over three-quarters of a
mile.
The girls' team including
Jeanne Hetherington, Pat Prin-
cent, and Anne Guthrie are
anticipating a strong showing
against their Mainland rivals.
The meet starts 10:30 a.m. at
UBC Stadium, and the results
will help determine who represents the university at the
Canadian National Indoor
Championships in Vancouver
Feb. 19.

Regina threatens
fee raise holdback
REGINA (UNS)—University of Saskatchewan students
will withhold part of their fees if they are raised next year.
Regina    campus    student
council president Graham
Kelly said Wednesday students would not tolerate any
increase in fees.
"There is at least a 50 per
cent opinion on the campus
that tuition fees should be
abolished," he said.
Kelly said he thought the
increase, if it came, would be
about $50.
Regina fees were increased
by this amount in 1963 bringing the level in arts and science
up to $285, the lowest in Canada.
University vice-president A.
C. McEwon said the administration is considering raising
the fees but he hoped federal
grants would eliminate the necessity for the hike.
Kelly said he will look for
assistance from the Canadian
Union of Students if students
are fined for withholding.
