Mad Albertans
ready for 'Birds'
UBC will be invaded by an
army of mad, screaming University of Alberta students,
Oct. 19.
Two hundred to 500 students will arrive by train to
support the Golden Bears in
their Saturday football game
against the Thunderbirds.
"!We will sadistically
watch as our Golden Bears
claw, mangle and devour
your poor 'Sparrows'," said
Kirk Miller, chairman of
UBC Football Weekend.
If university graduates don't
keep up on their subjects, their
degrees should be revoked.
Universities should have larger classes, better profs and
year-round classes.
These are the personal views
of Dr. Gordon Shrum, co-chairman of the B.C. Hydro and
chancellor of the new Simon
Fraser Academy.
"Degrees should be revoked
if their holders do not keep
pace with advances in their
field," he said.
Shrum called for a new approach to higher education.
"Bigger classes would mean we
need fewer professors, but
these could be paid more
money and be of higher quality.
"As many students as possible should have the opportunity of having outstanding
professors," he said.
Shrum had other prescriptions for the ideal university:
Lectures should be videotaped and made available to
Shrum outlined the future of
SFA. He said it will eventually have 18,000 students with
all buildings within one mile
~of each other.
The main buildings of each
faculty would be situated on a
main mall, located atop Burnaby Mountain, and other
buildings of the faculty would
move in terraces down the
The mall will be covered, so
students can move to any part
of the university without getting wet.
The Library and Student
Union Building would be located at the centre, with underground parking for at least 800
cars under them.
SFA will open in 1965, offering two years of courses, and
will have four years and graduate studies by 1967, Shrum
Dr. Shrum was cheered
when he called for more student - professor discussions.
"But instead of professors
going to the coffee bars, students should be allowed in the
Faculty Club."

SUB slogs
The proposed Student Union
Building took its biggest step
toward reality Monday night.
Student council approved in
principle the site offered by the
administration and the facility
list compiled by the SUB committee.
The site is that of the present stadium, adjacent to Empire Pool, and will cover about
240,000 square  feet.
It will cost an estimated $3
to $4 million.
Approval was given, however, subject to negotiation of
certain key concessions from
the unveirsity   administration.
The concessions being asked
will include a car-loop and an
adjacent 500-car parking lot
for students and visitors.
SUB committee chairman,
Dean Feltham, told council
there has ben no indication the
concessions will not be granted.
If the concessions asked are
not given, according to architectural consultant, Warnett
Kennedy, the facilities' cost
would be cut by some $80,000
to compensate for the decreased use of the building.
Kennedy is a key figure in
SUB planning and will advise
architects entering the Canadian architectural competition
for the design of the building.
The competition will be
open within a month of ratification of the concessions by
the Board of Governors. Page 2

Letters lead to news
Izvestia floats
in sea of mail
Izvestia gets fan mail, but it leads to news.
"Our paper gets three to
five thousand letters daily,"
Vassily Tarasoff, Izvestia's Ottawa correspondent, told more
than 100 UBC students crammed into a Buchanan classroom Friday.
He said the letters deal with
complaints which his newspaper investigates, often bringing to light the misbehavings
of officials.
"The paper," he said, "helps
the people control things in
the country."
The six million copies of the
paper, therefore, act as an instrument in expressing the will
of the people, Tarasoff added.
In return, he said, '-'we keep
in mind the attitude of the
majority of the people."
"It is the task of the paper
to educate the people, raise
their morals, and damn the detractors."
In order to accomplish these
aims, Tarasoff said, Izvestia
does not publish sordid details
of  crime—or comic  strips.
"We are not creating textbooks for newcoming criminals," he said firmly.
Tarasoff's appearance was
sponsored by The Ubyssey.
He went on to point out:
"Criticism    is   very    important."   But  criticism  for  criticism's   sake,   said   Tarasoff,  is
not good.

Party line in a newspaper is
actually following one line,

Afore soapboxes
Jim Ward is the kind of fellow who rankles the
average breed of Brock politician.
They snicker at the dishevelled Englishman in the
tweed jacket and green plaid tie.
They are annoyed when he sticks to his principles
while all around him have accepted compromise.
They wish, damn it all, that he'd conform to the
blue-blazer, button-down mind image they've created
for themselves.
But first vice-president Ward persistently refuses.
And we're glad.
Friday and Monday at noon, for instance, Ward took
student affairs to the students. And he found that the
students were interested.
He gathered a crowd that at times numbered 200.
Not all the students liked what Ward had to say.
Many heckled.
But Ward held his own and when it was finished
the students who had heard him respected him for at
least getting up and saying what he had on nis mind.
Of course it gave Brock types something else to
snicker at.   ■
One councillor who prides himself on his immaculate appearance and suave self-restraint was asked jokingly if he, too, would set up a soapbox.
"That's ALL we need," he replied importantly.
But maybe it is all we need.
We'd like to see, for instance:
Malcolm Scott, AMS president and members of the
Winter Sports Arena managing committee explaining
why it costs more to skate at our own arena than at

explaining the full implications of the French-English
split in NFCUS and why it was handled as it was.

peppery Englishmen—tweed coats, green plaid ties and

Now we don't believe for one minute that this figure
is misleading.
But we have a set of figures which show your government spent only $77,684,705 on education in 1962.
(You have good reason to question the validity of
these figures, of course—they're yours. We found them
in the 1962 Public Accounts).
The remaining $23.6 million must be a mistake, of
course, since the figure is obviously not intended to be

Anticalendar:  let
sensitive profs  go
By  Dr.  Ian Ross,
Since I have gone out on
a limb through favoring the
idea of an anti-calendar at
UBC (Ubyssey, Oct. 4), perhaps I may be permitted to
justify my choice of a perch
of such dubious eminence.
First, I do not envisage the
students on this campus making a pompous compilation
of judgments on courses,
written in the kind of flatulent prose which usually
emanates from the bowels of
administration. In other
words, for me, it's no go the
Victoria  model.

Secondly, pace nervous McGregor and scientific Signori, we do not need to think
in terms of defamatory libels
or reports based on batteries
of lie-detectors and charts
derived from anodes inserted
into the pineal glands of lecturers. An anti - calendar
could be conceived in the
spirit of the Renaissance
anti-masque, the Augustan
mock-epic, or the modern
anti-play  and anti-novel.
It could provide an opportunity for imaginative criticism of whatever is shopworn, hypocritical and pretentious, but wears a mask
of authority and self-righteousness. Its contributors

Are they genuine works of
art or do they represent an
as - yet - undiscovered jape?
Since we cannot tell art from
non-art, perhaps we should
learn whether or not we paid
money for them and work on
the basis that, if we did, then
they are art objects and, if
we didn't, the subject is
open for debate.
There are, as well, many
other areas of possible fakery. To move from the sublime to the ridiculous, do we
really know if student council is real? Having observed
its action in aiding the
smash-up of a meaningful
NFCUS, do we view that
act with outrage or should
we assume it was all a big
joke and go sheepishly
about our affairs?

The university may
abound in unrealities. All
we have to do is look beneath the surface of things
and examine apparancies a
little more carefully than we
are accustomed to doing or
the engineers will catch us
up again.

Editor,  The  Ubyssey:
If a person's only source
of political information were
John Douglas, Arts III, that
person would be sadly misinformed. The Socreds and
their leader (especially their
leader) are continually making themselves out to be
heroes and stars of the first
magnitude when, in actuality, their star exploded a
number of years ago.
The fact that Mr. Bennett and his colleague have
been operating so many millions of light years over the
heads of the people of B.C.
may explain why news of
the star's explosion had not
reached the voters by Sept.

As not too infrequently
happens, the Editorial Board
of the Ubyssey misses the
boat in their attempts to disparage the work of contemporary artists and the standards of the Fine Arts Com- ;
mittee, in connection with
the most recent Engineer ,
escapade. I admit that the
Engineers succeeded in making many people look foolish; whether this is a significant accomplishment or
not I will not venture to say
Aside from this, however,
they succeeded only in proving once more hat Engineers,

In my way of thinking, abstract art can no longer be
faked it is far too introspective and independent of
traditional technical rules
to be "imitated". One no
longer can use the crutches
of subject matter, technique
and identity of artist to evaluate art; stripped of these
objective cons iderations,
one can only evaluate Art's
effect upon self.
I sincerely applaud those -
brave souls who supported
the retention of the statues,
irregardless of who or what

make such an inarbitral decision.

have been violated by the

French got NFCUS wishes:
next move is up to them
Ubyssey News Editor
EDMONTON (Staff)—The
key to the body that welds
the national student community together now rests-in
the hands of the French-
The National Federation
of Canadian University Students, which for 37 years
tried to weld-the community
together, is no  more.
• •    •
It has been replaced with
a new body, the Canadian
Union  of  Students   (CUS).
The first year of CUS will
be crucial. It will be up to
the French to show the rest
of the Canadian student community what they're after
and if they're responsible.
CUS is substantially different from the old NFCUS.
Its new organization was
developed in the early hours
of the morning here one day
last week. It embodies the
idea that Canada is a cultural
and ethnic duality.
This duality is recognized
in the caucus, the key body
in CUS.
There are two of them, one
English, the other French.
Their power ,in the outline
of the CUS structure, is
limited to making decisions
in certain defined areas.
• •    •
Each caucus elects a vice-
president who will sit on the
executive. Each caucus elects
three members to a board of
directors which will advise
the executive.
The sole elective power
remaining in the congress is
that of choosing the president.
The congress in the former
NFCUS had all the power,
both elective and legislative.
In the CUS plan, it still
has all the legislative power.
The matters decided in caucus will have to be ratified
by the congress as a whole.
This, however, is where
the    responsibility    of    the
. . . crucial commission
French in this first year of
CUS  comes   in.
The jurisdiction of the
caucus is to be determined
by a structures commission
which will meet in the coming year.
There are three French
and three English members
on the commission—a 50-50
split. The president of CUS
also sits on the commission
and is, in effect, a tie breaker.
• •    •
For the first half of the
commission's deliberations,
the president will be Dave
Jenkins, of Edmonton. But
by the time the next CUS
congress rolls around, the
president will be Jean Bazin,
of Laval.
In other words, there will
be four French members on
the structures commission
compared to three for the
• •    •
At the same time, the
French will have the responsibility  on  the executive.
Five out of nine members
will be French by next fall.
This leaves the executive
and the structures commission under French-Canadian
control,    the    English    and
French equal in the caucus
and the English with a proportional advantage in the
The questions that will be
answered after the coming
• Can the Congress remain as the supreme body
of the national student community after the structures
commission brings down its
• •    •
• Will the caucus remain
a restricted body despite the
fact that the elective power
is in its hands?
• Will the congress become merely an arena where
French present a decision
made in the caucus and try
to impress its validity on the
English delegates and vice
• And will the French be
prepared to work for the
Canadian student community
in the new organization, instead of the Quebec community?
Until last week, the
French Canadians have been
battling for recognition as
equals. They are now recognized as equal in certain
areas—just how many will
be decided by the structures
They no longer have this
battle in CUS because they
are not only equal in some
areas, they are more than
equal in the executive.
• •    •
The one saving point of
the congress is that many
English delegates realize
what they gave the French.
They hope only that Uie
extent of the concessions will
make the English Canadian
students realize they must
decide what they want if
they wish to make their
presence felt in national student affairs.
The French -Canadians
knew what, they wanted.
They got most of it. A lot
of people are going to be
watching what they do with
Fine Arts course for all
Now that the dust of the
engineers' rampage on their
own creation has settled, let
us take a second look at it.
I   don't think  they fooled
as many people as the engineers like to have us believe.
I     stood    bemusedly     by
when the engineers went on
iOir anti-art   binge,  ridding
ie campus of the junk they
ad put up, however, it was
' f-*o pi"innf-T-e ^rl">o fooled
me, but The Ubyssey.
After   reading   the  editor-
j], many people thought the
ngineers   had  gone  too  far
t  last   and destroyed some
art    as   well   as   their   own
But the engineers can take
credit   for   one  thing.  They
have definitely proven that
many people, including the
engineers, don't know the
difference between art and
garbage. I know there is
some lousy modern art as
well as some good. The
engineers' pieces of "art"
were the first lousy ones to
arrive on   campus.
So we all had a good
laugh, but let's face it: It is
certainly not a sign of
maturity to classify anything
that one does not understand
as junk. Those people remind me of little children
who do not know the difference between their own
scribbling and a book on the
theory of relativity and who
are very proud that they
have     proven     that     other
children who also cannot
write or read can't tell the
difference either. A great
achievement indeed. I wonder why the engineers didn't
make fun of the library—
after a 11 nobody really
understands more than 50
per cent of the books in the
A far better approach
would be to promote at
least one obligatory course
in fine arts for ALL university students so that they
may see the difference between their own scribling
and learned writing, especially those engineers who
created those pieces since
they seem to show some
natural talent that with
tutoring might make them
into  acceptable artists. Page 6

How about a game!
Come back here—I didn't
mean that you had to sit and
watch the three dozen fine
athletes that make up the
~UBC football squad-"-no, no.
This is a game you'll all

Now, pretend all of you

face me. Ready? The football
players are crammed into a
wooden cart. They are in
front of you. You put them
• •    *
On this page two weeks
ago there appeared a column
urging students to forget
about the football team and
lend their support to the hockey team. (It ignored the fact
that the hockey team isn't
even a UBC squad—it's Canada's Olympic entry, training
here because its coach is employed here.)
The article was symtomatic
of the prevailing attitude of
the student body toward football. You regard UBC football
as insignificant—and for that
reason it remains so.
• •    •
You don't know whether
you like the game or not—
you're never there.
Now you've thought of the
30,000 people who attend the
B.C. Lions' home games.
Where are all those fans, if
UBC football is so hot?
Well, friends, they're at
home thinking that there's no
sense in going all the way out
to Point Grey to see a college
team that even the school's
students won't support. They
over-estimate your taste, don't
The fact is that the T-birds
have nothing to be ashamed of
in regard to their material.
Two of them have had try-
puts with Canadian pro
teams, and have been advised
to return here for seasoning.
• •    •
The point is that they are
pro prospects. More than
that, many of the Thunderbird squad members have
hopes, not entirely unfounded, of having CFL teams consider them.
School spirit is built around
good teams and exciting
games. But even at UBC, the
key to the whole picutre is
SUPPORT. It's simple:
1. In order to attract big time
football oponents, a school must
be able to offer a financial
2. The money for this guarantee is supposed to come from
gate  receipts;
3. When, as happens here several times a year, there are
barely enough receipts to pay
the officials, the guarantee must
be met from other funds. This
is obviously unsound economically, and can be carried on only
for a limited  time.
4. If a school can't offer substantial guarantees, they can't
schedule first—or even second-
class  opponents. *■
The sad part of the situation is that it doesn't have to
be this way at all.
The school is big enough
—the coaches are capable—
the players are enthusiastic—
the town is full of football
fans—in other words, the
stage is set. What is needed
is support from the inside,
from you, the students.

The rugged schedule of the Olympic Hockey team
showed Saturday night in Victoria Memorial Arena when
they lost 4-0 to the Portland Buckaroos of the Western
Hockey League.
Bauer's boys had played three games in four nights and
were simply exhausted.
The Buckaroos, who earlier
in the exhibition held the NHL
Toronto Maple Leafs to a one-
goal win, scored once in each
of the first two periods and
twice in the third, outplaying
the Olympic team throughout
the game.
Play during the first two
periods was fairly even, with
each goal-keeper stopping 10
shots in the first period.
In the second, Broderick, in
goal for the Olympics, stopped
9 shots, while the Buckaroos
netminder handled 8.
In the third period, however, Broderick stopped nearly twice as many shots as did
his Portland counterpart.
Buckeroos used regular
goalie, Don Head, in the first
period and Rick Charron in the
final two sessions.
The teams matched penalties
in the first period, but the
Olympic infraction at 18:13
cost them a goal, when Ken
Lavfman   scored  with   Clancy
serving a two-minute hooking
Bauer's Boys played at full-
strength during the entire second period, but were unable to
score, despite three penalties
against Portland.
Lavfman got his second goal
of the night at 5:39.
In the third period the Olympics spent three times as much
time in the penalty box as the
Conacher was chased twice,
once for interference at 1.38

This display among the elite

Dr. Harry Warren, president, of the Canadian Field

company. The competing teams
are the best in the world, and
all were fighting hard for a

UBC was represented by five

Canada. Lee Wright, John

Neither team could score
again until the fourth-quarter,

extend their margin to 15-6.
UBC's touchdowns were
scored by Bob Sweet, and by

Torturous playing conditions
at the Richmond Golf Club

even longer. The only man to
match par for either team was
young Jim Seed.
An eagle three on the 18th
hole gave Seed his 72. Seed
and his playing partner, Don
Cannon, wiped out the opposition, taking eight of their
nine matches.
John Morgan and Ian Muter
made a clean sweep of their
matches, while Wayne Vollmer and Graham Zelmer won
seven points for UBC.
This was the second straight
win for the collegians, who last

Well, what's in a name anyway?
Sports Editor
What do we call them?
When Father David Bauer brings his crew on to the
ice nobody knows what to yell.
One enthusiast turns to his neighbor and asks. The
neighbor says, "Birdies," they all go to UBC, don't they?
What happens if they play against the Thunderbirds?
Then we will have a problem.
Perhaps we could call them the "Olies" (standing for
Olympic), but that has certain connotations connected with
a vile brew which comes from across the border and that
would defeat the whole Canadian  image.

Then a certain fat sportswriter suggested we call them
the "Nats." That is foolish, because there are a number
of Memorial Cup and other teams which have this name.
AL MARR, Science 3, works out on bench press in the circuit.
Circuit program makes
athletes all-round men
It's compulsory for some but
many take to the circuit
simply to improve themselves.
Freshmen take the training
program because they have to.
Fellows like Mark Lemieux,
captain of the rowing crew
and Bill MacDonald, back at
UBC from a year with the
Lethbridge Broders, take the
training to keep in shape:
Others take it for fun.
The circuit program consists
of thirteen sets of strenuous
exercises which are run
through three times each meeting.
The program is progressive.
The beginner starts at the lowest level (red) and when he can
complete it in less than 25
minutes he moves to the next
level. Each of the levels become increasingly difficult.

offers is against the athlete

The UBC Soccer Thunderbirds were upset 3-2,
Sunday by the Lees in Mainland League play.
The Birds, defending champs in the mainland loop,
showed that this year's race could go to anyone.
UBC and Lees played to a 1-1 tie in the first half
but the Lees came on strongly in the second half and
Ken Campbell netted the winner late in the game.
Dick Mosher and Jim Jamieson picked up the
goals for UBC.
The Soccer Birds under coach Joe Johnson, have
just started league play.
In fourth division action over the weekend the UBC
Braves lost to Kolping, 4-1.
Bauer's Boys seemed to be the thing. The concensus
was good, sportswriters wouldn't have to worry about
writing Canadian Olympic Hockey Team every time the
team was mentioned. Headline writing would be made
But then the derogatory statements came. It is sac-
religious — somehow it takes the dignity out of Father
Bauer's  priesthood.
Terse comment was heard from the peanut gallery
because its cheerers couldn't say, "Go, Bauer's Boys, go."
The problem was not solved.
Another brilliant sportswriter suggested that we call
them the Reps. This would solve everyone's dilemma.
Why? They are Canada's representatives to the Olympic
Games in Innsbruck.

But Reps again is not the answer, the name is in itself
very Americanized and, if there is anything we don't
want, it is being identified with the Americans in International competition.
Canucks—no good if they play in Vancouver.
Leafs—no good if they play in Toronto.
I have the answer. We call them Birds when they
play here' and when they play anywhere else let the
people call them what they may.
In the opening game at Chilliwack, everyone sitting
near me—not students—called them UBC.
That is good enough for me.

These are provisional results
and  are   subject  to   protest.
A novice prize is yet to be
The rally, an annual event
sponsored by the UBC Sports
Car Club led the cars south of
Bellingham on the freeway and
back to Vancouver via back
roads,   paved and  gravel.
Most of the entries were
novice teams and as a result
points have been high, says
Rally Marshall Bill Fane.
Only one car failed to complete the course, an early
model Sprite, that didn't show
at the first checkpoint, a few
miles south of Bellingham. He
hasn't been seen since.
A 1953 MGTD was the only
car to suffer mechanical
trouble, other than two checkpoint cars that continually
needed  push   starts.
An early off route check
point sucked in 18 cars and
gave them an early lead to
loosing   the rally.
The object of a rally is to
follow a set of instructions
giving the route to be followed
and average times to be maintained.
Checkpoints, of three types,
timecontrols, routechecks and
off-routechecks, are put into
the route at a variety of unknown  points.
The cars must arrive at these
points within one minute if
they are not to loose points.
Cars may also loose points for
a variety of offenses: such as
arriving at a check the wrong
way, missing checks, and hitting off-route checks.

Cats skulls  used
in  search  for  nerves
UBC medical researchers are
experimenting on a nerve
centre deep in the brain of man
and other animals.
The research,- conducted by
Dr. Hugh McLennan and his
associates, is attempting to discover the normal function of
the basal ganglia, a little-
known part of the brain.
Parkinson's disease and
other disorders of movement
often result from the deterioration of some of the basal ganglia.

Experiments were first conducted on cats.
Fine wires were placed in
the basal ganglia. The wires
were then connected to tran-
sitorized radio receivers attached to the cats' skulls.
The half-ounce receivers
wer designed by Paul Plum-
mer, a fourth-year medical
Radio pulses were transmitted to the receivers and fed
into the basal ganglia. By altering the number of pulses the
animal was made to stop in
mid-stride, or turn right or
The experiments were conducted to discover if stimulation of the basal ganglia would
affect the cats' ability to learn.
Dr. McLennan said: "we
haven't been very successful
at teaching a cat anything it
didn't want to learn."
It is hoped the experiments
will teach scientists more
about the human brain.

DENVER, Col. (CUP) —The
lack of freedom of speech on
American campuses has been
criticized by a U.S. society of
speech teachers.
The Speech Association of
America charged that "too frequently schools avoid or cancel
speeches by controversial persons."
They also avoid controversial plays, the association said.
