one week left
The last Ubyssey of the
year will appear a week

Chris bows
out with
a surplus
UBC's Alma Mater Society
has an operating surplus of
more than $3,087.12 over a
total income of $351,150.00
during the fiscal year 1963-64.
In his annual report, outgoing AMS treasurer Chris
Hansen said he thought the
purpose of the AMS and finance committee was to allocate all available AMS funds
for student use.
He said the relatively small
surplus this year was adequate

the funds were efficiently allocated.
AMS president-elect Roger
McAfee agreed.
"The AMS should wind up
with little or no year-end surplus," he said.
"The dispersal of all the
funds shows an active organization and student body."

$15 for flowers go to fund
Grave goes bare to build a school
A school for African children is a better memorial than
flowers on a grave.
This is what Mrs. S. L.
Owen thinks.
So she donated $15 to the
Pilikwe school fund in memory of UBC grad student
Doug Carey who was killed
in a plane crash last summer.

Mrs. Owen, a close friend
of Carey and his wife, had
planned to spend the money
for flowers for his grave.

for helping have-not countries.
"He felt that if the haves

Owen said.

Carey died when a light

AMS trying to buffalo us,
URA treasurer herd to say
The treasurer of the University Res i d e n c e Association
said' Wednesday he thinks the
AMS is trying to buffalo his
association out of its autonomy.
Jim Slater said he fears
that if the URA became a subsidiary organization of the
AMS, the AMS would dictate
the affairs of the resident
councils through the URA.
AMS president-elect, Roger
McAfee, made the affiliation
proposal to the URA council
two weeks ago.
"If the URA became a subsidiary organization and eligible for AMS grants as suggested by Mr. McAfee, our obligation would be to the AMS
rather than to the resident
councils," Slater said.
"That would defeat the
whole purpose of the URA" he
The URA presently operates
independently of the AMS on
funds raised by its own student activities. It co-ordinates
activities of the six residence
councils on campus.
McAfee suggested the URA
become affiliated with the
AMS so that when the SUB is
built and its program arranged,
residence student programs
can be  included.
Slater said the final decision
on the affiliation proposal will
be up to the member councils.

Mud - mongers
We see where those most unscrupulous and arrogant of restaurateurs, the coffee-caterers, have found
some new excuse to jack up the price and reduce the
quantity of the students' second-favorite beverage (they
won't sell us beer).
Several local cafes are now charging the outrageous
sum of 15 cents for a cup of coffee, which is little less
than daring daylight robbery. And our own UBC Food
Services, which annually grafts as many thousands of
dollars from students as does the bookstore, has reduced
the size of our traditional mugful by 15 per cent, wihich
is little less than treason.
A person whose business it is to make coffee told
us that the best coffee available costs about 80 cents
a pound wholesale. At 50 cups to the pound, he said,
that's about one and a half cents a cup. Cream and sugar
cost about three cents per cup, and labor about two
The cost of our mud, therefore, is about six or seven
cents a cup,  and it's sold for 10 or 15 cents.
We'd like to know what kind of outfits try to make
huge profits on an item as small as a cup of coffee, particularly when most people who drink it also purchase
equally-outrageous food.
And what student wouldn't be laughing at a 100 per
cent return on his money?
For the retailers who insist on 15 cents, among whom
are the otherwise reputable White Spot drive-ins and
Dean's on Tenth Avenue, we suggest a student boycott. And as for the campus crooks, who won't even give
seconds, we suggest an unfriendly sneer and some damning letters.
We could do worse than drink chocolate milk with
our sticky buns.
So long
It is not exactly with fond tears streaming down
our cheeks that we say goodbye to the 1963-64 edition
of the Alma Mater Society student council today.
No self-respecting newspaper ever gets sentimental
about the Brock bureaucrats. However, on the occasion-
of the latest clique's ascendance into history, assuming
that it is indeed an elevated position, we must issue a
suitable report card for them to take home to their
mothers, if nothing else.
The council must get full marks for finalizing the
long-awaited student union building, and for carrying
on tihe administrative and organizational business of the
society with a minimum of red tape, and with an unusual
eye for the welfare of the students.
The executive has for the most part done its job
most capably—particularly Byron Hender in public relations and Chris Hansen in the treasurer's office.
A few of the undergraduate presidents even showed
some interest and intelligence at meetings.
But undoubtedly the highlight of the council has
been the work of president Malcolm Scott, whose industry and energy has carried most of the society's work
along all year.
When Mr. Scott steps down at the general meeting
today, the AMS will be graduating one of its most colorful and successful presidents.

URA answers
Editor,  The  Ubyssey:
It is true that the University Residents' Association
has decided .not to be formally
affiliated with the AMS. The
position offered us by Mr. McAfee was to have an AMS
member, approved by the
AMS council and the URA
council, sit as an ex-officio
member of URA. The constitution of URA for 1963-64
stated that the executive of
URA would include a representative from the AMS with
full voting privileges.
No representative ever
came to our meetings, although AMS was fully informed as to when and where
they are held. AMS was "apparently not interested."
The URA council feels that
URA would gain nothing by
affiliating with AMS in its
present form. If, as mooted,
the AMS changed to an interest group type of representative, steps would no doubt
be taken then to become affiliated. We can see no reason why such a move could
not occur at that time.
The Ubyssey of March 3,
stated that the URA decision
(to not affiliate with AMS)
"was made last week, but, in
keeping with URA policy, was
not announced offi c 1 a 11 y."
The decision occurred, and
was recorded in the minutes
of the meeting held Thursday,
February 20, 1964.
As usual with minutes of
all meetings, copies were sent
to the council members and
the presidents of each resident area council who post
the minutes in the dining
halls. At that time, also, the
council requested the secretary to convey to Mr. McAfee
the assurance that "URA will
co-operate gladly and fully
with the AMS in any matter."
We feel that by these two
actions we were certainly
officially announcing our decision.
URA and resident students
are interested in AMS affairs.
However, most of our activities are self-contained within
the residence system or are

Passive gesture
Editor, The  Ubyssey:
With due respect to the
Ghandinaian effort of the
four students to raise money
for a school in Africa, I personally feel that the modus
operandi is rather stupid.
The magnitude of the prob
lem of education, or racial
inequality, of foreign vested
interests, of foreign oppression, of the exploitation of
the natives in some African
States — all those should be
"exploded" right in the open.
It is unfortunate that the
wealth of some African states
is in foreign hands and is
channelled away to so-called
mother countries.
It is truly humanitarian to
undergo personal sac r i f i c e
and hardship for a noble
cause, but the problem is
charged with social, political
and economic aspects and
hence cannot be solved by impulsive, passive gesture.

About 200 students took
part in the demonstration.
Mayor Henry Baker of Regina and student representatives addressed the rally.
The royal commission would
be asked to study whether Saskatchewan should have a
single multi-campus university
or independent chartered universities; university finance
and government; and the role
of the Saskatoon and Regina
The students suggested government, provincial organizations, faculty and students be
given membership on the proposed   commission.
Students complained about
a lack of communication with
professors, and the departure
of nationally recognized faculty members from the Regina
"We feel the faculty fell
down in not warning the students about the increase,"
said Graham Kelly, vice-president of the Students Representative Council.
When a  Columbia  student
invites a girl up to his dorm
room to see his etchings, he
means it.
Columbia has finally caught
up with the trend.
A rule allowing women
visitors in undergraduate and
graduate dormitories every
Saturday from 7 p.m. to midnight went into effect Feb. 15.
The move followed three
trial visiting sessions over the
last year. Columbia was the
last of the eight Ivy League
schools to allow women visitors in men's dorms.
• •    •
Under the new system, the
girl must be signed in when
she is brought to her escort's
dorm. And there is a further stipulation once the pair
reaches his room.
"Doors of the rooms in
which women visitors are
present must be kept open,"
says a notice to residents.
"A space comparable to the
width of a book is suggested."
"A book" is commonly interpreted in a striking way—
as a book of matches.
Student reaction to the
visiting privileges was mixed.
"It's a step forward, but
that's all it is," was the typical response.
• •    •
"Not bad but it isn't
enough," said Dave Bickford,
a journalism student who
lived in one of the undergraduate halls until, to prove
that he wasn't satisfied, he
moved to an apartment off
A fraternity member remarked that because of the
open-door provision, fraternity houses still had an advantage over the dorms.
Some residents were annoyed that now they would
have to wear something on
their way to the showers on
Saturday nights.
Many students were disgusted that Columbia was so
far behind other schools.
Women - in - the - dorms has
been a standard policy at
Yale for many years. Visiting
hours are 11 a.m. to midnight
Friday and Saturday; 11 a.m.
to 7 p.m. Sunday.
• •    •
MIT men, although not Ivy
League, may host females
from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Friday; noon to 1 a.m. Saturday; and noon to midnight
The open-door (usually six
inches) rule is fairly standard, but Cornell, althought it
allows visiting until 3 a.m.
some Saturdays, insists that
the lights in the room must be
on as well.
Princeton leads- the way
with 84 visiting hours a
week: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday; and 8 a.m. to midnight Saturday.
"Trouble    has    arisen     because what was once considered a pleasant privilege has
now, for a growing number of
students, come to be considered a licence to use the
college rooms for wild parties or for sexual intercourse," said Dean John U.
Munro, chief administrative
officer of Harvard's undergraduate college in a letter
to The Crimson, the student
• * •
Dr. Munro said he was replying to his interpretation of
The Crimson's stand, that
sexual freedom was analogous to freedom of religion
and speech.
He also criticized as most
disturbing the attitude that
a student's behavior in his
room is no concern of the college, that a student's room is
his castle and his sexual behavior is a private affair.
The Crimson sprung to the
defence of Harvard's women-
in-the-dorms hours (4 p.m. to
7 p.m. Sunday-Friday; noon
to   midnight   Saturday).
"Parietal rules (concerning
life within a college) should
derive from the need of students for an atmosphere in
which they can study," it editorialized, and asked for Friday visiting to be extended to
midnight and Saturday to 2
Dr. Graham B. Blaine Jr., a
Harvard health service psychiatrist, made a survey of
students at Harvard and
nearby Radcliffe, an Ivy-
League girls' school.
He found the trend toward
extra-marital relations was
increasing, reflecting "a cultural change in the United
He said because of the accessibility of bedrooms in
college dormitories, many
students fall into sexual relationships for which they are
not ready, and added:
"Colleges put themselves
in a unique position by allowing girls in boys' bedrooms."
This "unique position" was
defended by William C.
Fels, president of Bennington College, a rather liberal
women's institution.
•    •    •
"If a  college's regulations
are too strict, you run your
students into automobiles and
motels," he said.
State and religious colleges
generally have much stricter
rules than private institutions.
Seton Hall University, a
Roman Catholic men's college
in New Jersey, doesn't allow
even commuting students to
visit in their on-campus colleagues'  dorms.

Here is the annual report of
AMS treasurer Chvris Hansen:
Due to the increased enrolment at this university, the
income of the Alma Mater
Society from fees has reached
$342,200 during the current
year. Interest income will
amount to $4,000, as opposed
to $9,000 during the previous
This decrease has come
about by progress and final
payments for the construction
of the Winter Sports Centre
from accumulated building
funds, thus making less money
available for short-term investments. College Shop profits and rental income will
total $3,950 for the year.
The following allocations
were made during this year on
the basis of general meeting
minutes or referenda. These
charges represent first charges
on the funds of the society
and are allocated on a non-
discretionary basis.
over to Dean Gage for distribution as short-term loans to
needy students. It is hoped
that $2,000-$3,000 would be
allocated in this fashion in
each of the succeeding years.
If and when the unlikely
situation arises that there is
no further need for such a
fund, it would be returned to
the society and allocated for
other purposes.
In the allocation of funds
for the 1963-1964 year, attempts have been made to support those events of a recurrent nature as well as to provide funds for new activities
having a wide appeal. French
Canada Week, Academic Activities Committee and Canadian Universities Press Conference are some of the new
areas of activity that have received financial support in,,
varying amounts.
A fund was established to
aid undergraduate Societies in
pursuing activities of an aca-

$225,630.00 $246,090.00
In addition, a compulsory
margin of 5% of income from
fees is provided for by the
constitution. This margin,
amounting this year to
$17,160.00, is allocated
throughout the year to various
subsidiary organizations for
special purposes not budgeted
for. Thus, non-discretionary
allocations account for approximately 75% of the total
budget of the Alma Mater Society. In other words, of the
$24 paid to the Alma Mater
Society by each student, $18,
is tied up by the above levies,
only $6 remain to be allocated
among the subsidiary organizations who contribute most
significantly to university
life. A Finance Commission
is currently working on certain recommendations that
will help to alleviate the
strain imposed on the moneys
available for Discretionary
Allocation. It is very likely
that these recommendations
will be put before a general
meeting next fall for consideration.
•   •   •
As the two tables indicate, the philosophy of the
finance committee and myself
has been to allocate all funds
received during the year.
Our accumulated surplus
stands at present at $45,000.
These funds are tied up in
loans outstanding to undergraduate societies and clubs,
inventories and capital fixtures.
It is felt, however, that this
level of surplus is sufficient as
an "operational margin" from
year to year (but by efficient
allocation of available funds).
At the end of the fiscal year
it is proposed that part of the
operating surplus be set aside
in a fund to provide "emergency loans" for members of
the society.
This   fund   will be   turned
demic nature that are not
otherwise provided for.
Intramural athletics enjoyed
additional support from the
Alma Mater Society to the extent of approximately $1,000.
A new registration process
was developed whereby a
more suitable AMS card was
provided in as efficient a manner as possible. In the future
this process will be continued
incorporating further refinements at a reasonable cost to
the society.
Eventually, the Alma Mater
Society card will serve as
library, parking and general
university identification card.
General AMS administration costs have increased by
$5,000 during this year. This
increase has been brought
about by the necessity of retaining one additional member of the office staff during
the summer months. In addition, an executive secretary
has been employed to ease
the work load on the student
council executive to permit
them to attend the occasional
lecture. The housing service
established by the society in
the summer of 1963 incurred
a net loss of $1,800, thus further adding to administration costs. The housing service will continue to operate
hopefully at a reduced cost.
• •    •
In any event, the cost of
this service is easily justified
on the basis of providing up to
date, meaningful lists of housing available to students. The
concern of students' council
with the state of finances of
the university as a whole and
the individual student has
necessitated action involving
the cost of $2,000, which has
also been charged against
AMS administration.
In the area of publications,
a decrease in net expenditure
from $25,320 to $16,801 has
been brought about by the
utilization of a better and
cheaper printing process for
The Ubyssey.
• •    •
The split of Totem into a
Grad Book and a Campus Life
book will also add to the decrease of subsidization needed
by the publications' department.
The final success of Totem
in its new form will determine
whether publication of this
book will continue. Unless
sales of Totem are successful
during the next month it will
likely be discontinued, as the
$4,000 subsidy could be well
spent elsewhere.
There remains an area
where the publications' department could be greatly
improved. Laurie Frisby (coordinator of publications) has
recommended the hiring of a
manager   of student  publica-
20 cents to 10 cents per student, as well as funds not
being needed for Open House,
will result in more money
being available. This matter
will receive consideration at
the general meeting.
In the  area of campus activities and events, a searching

tions for the purpose of taking advantage of additional
paid advertising available to
the society.
It has been the experience
of universities that, within a
very short time, such a person has more than paid for
his own salary by increased
advertising sales, as well as
efficient operation of student
publications. This recommendation, it is expected, will be
acted upon shortly.
Although undergraduate societies and clubs have received
larger grants each year, their
activities have expanded at a
more rapid rate.
It is expected that during
the next fiscal year more
funds will be available to undergraduate societies and
clubs. The lowering of the
non-discretionary grant to the
Accident Benefit Fund from
review of Homecoming must
be made to prevent a recurrence of the $2,200 loss sustained this year. An event of
this nature cannot be justified
on precedent alone, it must be
justified on the basis of appeal to students generally.

McGill elects
Indian leader
MONTREAL (CUP) — McGill University students
have elected their first foreign student council president, Saeed Mirza, graduate
student  from  India.
McGeer, Point Grey representative in the legislature,
said the lands could then be
developed as an asset to UBC
and the province.
He said revenue from the development could be used to relieve UBC's financial troubles.
McGeer suggested part of the
land be used for a laboratory
research centre for scientifically-oriented industry.
A similar development, he
said, has taken place at Stanford University at Palo Alto,
McGeer said the Stanford
centre has become a prime attraction for foreign dignitaries
and tourists.
He said it is also a powerful magnet for drawing people
with outstanding technical accomplishments.
He suggested such a centre
in B.C. would help to develop
secondary industry.
Lands and Forests Minister
Ray IWilliston told the legislature later the endowment lands
are presently costing the province money.
He said more is being spent
to maintain the area than is
coming out in revenues.
Williston   made   no    direct
comment on McGeer's suggestion.
The election for  President produced an interesting
race between Jim Slater (physics) and last-minute entry
George Abbott (M.B.A.).    Of the 98 votes that were cast,
Jim polled 52, and was thus declared winner by six votes.
The remaining positions were filled by acclamation:

Fred Hales (M.B.A.)
Savithri Shanker (English).

Earle Krakower (Chemsitxy).
Cultural Officer:
George Wootlon (Met. Eng.).

The past year has produced  a very  successful  ice

We have managed to keep most people happy with
grad student parking facilities, and, thanks to tb<e efforts
of Mahendra Baijal and his committee, there will be some
improvements in grad student registration this year.
Our social events have been well attended and a new
idea—ihe children's Christmas party—was very successful, in spite of the relatively low attendance. Sporting
activity has been satisfactory, and cups are now presented
annually for tennis and softball. The old favourites,
bridge on Tuesdays, and Club Night, are in good shape.
It is hoped that more special events will be presesUed
next year, especially on Sunday evenings.
