UBC profs
knocking on
SFA's doors
Several top UBC professors have applied for positions
at the new Simon Fraser Academy.
And the academy is going to be a full university, with
graduate as well as undergraduate faculties, SFA chancellor
Gordon Shrum told The Ubyssey Thursday.
Shrum said some professors

Tom plunges into the rain:
what will he find? SFA
Tight-lipped in the driving
rain, a tense group bade farewell yesterday to The Ubyssey's roving reporter as he set
out on his search for Simon
Fraser Academy (SFA).
Before a silent crowd of
close friends, The Ubyssey's
Editor-in-Chief, Mike Hunter,
shook hands with reporter Tom
Wayman and wished him a
pleasant journey.
"I wish I didn't have to send
you,"   he   choked,   'but   they
wouldn't let me go myself."
Not an eye was dry as the
valiant explorer climbed grimly into the Humobile, but whether it was the rain or the
emotion of the moment no one
could tell.
There was a ragged cheer as
the Humobile—the specially
fitted exploratory vehicle owned and operated by The Ubyssey's Photo Editor, Don Hume
—growled, bucked and plunged
into the rain.
And into history.

he continued, "I think the expedition is vital in the continuing search for knowledge.

"I will disregard the dangerous wild animals.

This year's Homecoming will be bigger and better than
UBC was expecting an invasion of University of Alberta
students for Saturday's football game between the U of A
Golden Bears and UBC's Birds.
But the invasion has turned
to trickle, as only 35 are expected to arrive.
Earler Kirk Miller of the U
of A said that from two hundred to five hundred Alberta
supporters could be expected.
Ken Leitch, co-ordinator of
student activities, was prepared to welcome the invaders.
The Student Council was
planning a dinner for the Alberta supporters.
And the Ubyssey planned to
set up a dummy front page
similar to that of the U of A's
campus newspaper, the Gateway. The page would have included a calendar of events, a
directory to UBC and a handy
guide to sightseeing in Vancouver.
Last week Leitch sent two
wires to the U of A to find out
how many students to expect.
He received no answer.
Yesterday, AMS president,
Malcolm Scott, received a
phone call from the U of A.
Apparently, only 35 students
were prepared to come to UBC
for the game.
Leitch said: "The invasion
will be a trickle of fans."
He said no special events
will be held. The students that
come from Alberta will have
to go to the events already
planned for UBC.

Not withstanding the fact
certain segments of the student population persist in leaving odd bits of their paper on

not big enough.

It's in the books
Anyone who can't think of half a dozen good reasons
offhand for finding an alternative to the present bookstore setup has probably not been around very long.
But the best reason has been the most unpublicized.
That is, that the administration is raking between
$30,000 and $40,000 a year off this profit-making venture.
The figures are rough—and have up to now been
unpublished—because the university carefully guards
information on how much its ancillary monopoly enterprises such as books, food and housing make.
It probably makes it easier this way to charge as
much as the traffic will bear.
But you can figure it out for yourself. The bookstore manager, who refuses to give last year's profit
figures, says his operation clears about three per cent
of total sales.
The university bursar, who also refuses to give out
profit figures, says total sales last year were in the
neighborhood of $1,150,000.
The profit would seem to make the operation worthwhile.
The figures are of significance because it has been
suggested again that the students should look into the
possibility of running their own store.
The $30,000 to $40,000 the student operation would
make at book store prices, however, is not the only
thing that makes this possibility an interesting area of
Another is that the bookstore manager claims that
17 per cent of total sales is used to operate the book
store and pay freight and other charges for books.
This means that operational costs for the store are
an astronomical $200,000 a year. It seems a little unrealistic—or inefficient.
On the basis of experience at Western Washington
State College—where students run their own bookstore
—it would seem these operational costs could be greatly
reduced and result in low book prices.
The fact many students don't realize is that at UBC's
bookstore, they pay 25 per cent more for textbooks than
the bookstore pays (i.e. a book purchased by the store
for $4 is sold for $5).
And on the books other than texts—for instance,
English novels that would sell on any bookstand—they
pay 33 per cent and higher. (These prices are not lowered
says the manager, because it would be unfair coirtpeti-
tion for stores outside the campus).
Far be it from us to expect the university will willingly give up its book business, even if the students decide
they want to get a better deal through their own operar
A university that must cry every year that it lacks
operational funds can hardly pass up a source that realizes
as much as the bookstore.
The profit taken from the operation which ends up
in general funds amounts to an indirect additional fee
levy on the students.
And it emphasizes a philosophy which abounds in
a university which fails every year to make a sufficient
case for the government money it needs—that the easiest
place to get money is from the student.

once it almost got me with my
pants down. It was a rainy
day at UBC and my hands
were full of books, briefcase

I was proceeding from the
library to the Buchanan building when suddenly I realized
that my pants were desperately trying to remind me that
the law of gravity was still
in effect.
So were my glasses. I had
to choose between seeing my
way clearly by adjusting them
or clearing the scene quickly
before my pants made their
command performance beneath my coat. I chose the
latter course and would have
been home free had I not burst
out laughing at the thought
of losing my glasses, pants
and umbrella in one fell
swoop. So if you saw me drop
everything and pull my COAT
up . . . you now know that it
wasn't my coat I was raising.

Or like: I was walking with
a pal one morning in the west
end (where .let's face it, anything is bound to happen) and
we ran into another pal's
uncle. I had to introduce
them and promptly forgot
their names.
So I improvised. "Lawrence of Arabia," I said, "I'd
like you to meet the Magnificent Obsession." I must have
said it dead-pan, because my
pal said, "Salem Affendi," and
the other looked magnificently obsessed.

Calgary's lonely French
— the southern losers
The Gauntlet
Albert's French are wining in the north but losing
in the south, says Dr. L. O.
Beauchemin, spokesman for
Calgary's 4,000 French Canadians.
Although there are hopes
the trend toward assimilation in Calgary may be reversed, they are only hopes
in the face of concrete gains
in Edmonton.
• •    •
Twenty   thousand  French
.Canadians live in Edmonton
and there are four French
Catholic churches, a French
kindergarten, a n d a school
offering Grades I and II in
College St. Jean, a classical college of the old Quebec
style, can accommodate 200
boys between elementary
and university instruction.
Assumption Convent handles
the education of French
Canadian girls. A French
teachers' college affiliated
with UAE opened this year.
In the south there are
slightly more than 4,000
French. Most of them live in
Calgary, but only 1,000 are
active members of the
French community. Small
groups also live in Cluny and
Pincher Creek.
The Calgary community
has revolved around Sainte
Famille Church at 1805-5th
St. S.W. since 1928.
• •    •
In spite of progress made,
says Dr. Beauchemin, he
feels that too many of his
people are yielding to the
pressure to unite the English-speaking population of
"We are a small and. scattered group in a big city."
The individual French
Canadian is surrounded by
English-speaking neighbors
with little sympathy for his
desire to preserve a French
identity. Many of them are
members of larger groups,
such as Ukranians and Germans, which have chosen to
integrate completely with
the majority.
His children attend an
English school. It is much
more convenient to send his
children to the neighborhood
kindergarten than to the
French Club. Sainte Famille
Church may be miles away,
but there is a Catholic
church with services in English just down the street.
• •    •
This is how 3,000 Calgary
French have lost contact
with the French Canadian
community, says Dr. Beauchemin.
But he belives two things
could change the situation.
The first is a new Sainte
Famille Church to be completed by the end of November. The new church
will seat 500 and may attract a larger congregation.
The second is the separatist movement in Quebec.
"We are elated in a certain way," says Dr. Beauche-
... in a cowtown
min, "because gains in Quebec will no doubt reflect on
us here. It gives us ambition
when we see progress elsewhere."
English - speaking Canadians are just as anxious as
the French to remain separate from the United States,
he feels. What could make
Canadians more distinctive,
he asks, than bilingualism?
•    •    •
Although the separatist
movement is a benefit to
French Canadians outside
Quebec, nothing could hurt
them more than the actual
secession of Quebec.
Small minority pockets
across Canada would face a
pressure to assimilate more
intense than ever before,
and, should a divided Canada
prove unable to maintain its
independence, the irresistible

This preservationist attitude results in certain disadvantages for society, however. If, as Dr. Beachemin
hopes, the Calgary Separate School Board opens a
French - language school
some day, the inefficiency
already inherent in a
double school system would
be increased by a further
division on language lines.
If the provincial government were to cater to this
preservationist sentiment all
government documents
would have to be printed
in both languages. Bilingualism can be  inconvenient.
A less tangible disadvantage of the preservationist
outlook of Alberta's French
Canadian population is the
lack of creative contribution
to the society of the majority.

A    slow    integration    of
other non-English groups into the society has resulted
in new tastes in food, clothing and ideas. But how
much can the French contribute in a non-creative role
designed to preserve the
status quo?

UBC plunges deeper
into financial hole
UBC dropped deeper into the financial hole in the fiscal
year April 1, 1962 to April 1, 1963.
The annual financial report |
(Continued from page 1)
annual financial report
released today shows the university operated at a loss of
$43,623 during the year.
It cost $27.5 million to run
the university during the year.
Largest single expenditure
went for salaries and wages.
This totalled $15,731,556.
Supplies and service costs
ran up to $11,566,150.
A breakdown of the figures
shows UBC received $10,586,-
394 in operating and capital
grants from Victoria, another
$5,291,730 from the federal
government and $5,346,957
from student fees.
Private bequests, donations
and various profits from university services brought the
total revenue to $27,450,498.
In all, 227 members of the
academic and administrative
staff are listed as receiving
salaries ranging from $10,000
to $20,000. Twenty - two of
them made more than $15,000.
Badminton meeting
First meeting for those interested in playing intramural
badminton is tonight at 7:30
p.m. in War Memorial Gym.
George Williams University offers $12,100.
Bowers says this will mean
salaries in these universities
will go up as high as five per
cent over those of last year,
while UBC's salaries won't go
He warned that if UBC
doesn't keep up with salary increases across the country it
will have a hard time finding
staff, particularly at the junior
"Salary isn't the major concern of the older professors,
usually," he said, "but it does
affect the younger people with
Ph.D.'s They are going to look
around for the best situations.
The cream of the crop won't
come to UBC."
He said the salary problem
probably wouldn't affect established professors as much as
those thinking about coming to
UBC. He said the press misrepresented Dr. Avrum Stroll's
resignation last year.
"Dr. Stroll left UBC for
personal reasons, not because
of the tight money policy re-
grading salaries."
Bowers said the Faculty Association is attempting to keep
UBC's salaries competitive.

a review
Although it is probably a
theory denounced by anthropologists, one often wonders
if landscape has any part in
forming racial personality.
Was it, for example, the
mouldering landscape of the
Rhine valley and the brooding
immensity of the Black Forest
that slowly twisted its knife
into the German personality
and made its literature more
demonic than that of any other
country? Probably not.
• •    •
It is tempting to believe this
theory, however after seeing
the filmed version of Synge's
"Playboy". Superbly photographed at transitional periods
of the day, this wild desolate
seascape seems naturally to incite awe and superstition and
to account for the highly imaginative, richly cadenced language of the Celts which Synge
has translated so well into
The film is worth seeing
alone for its authentic depiction of Irish customs in their
natural setting.
In its spontaneous expression,
rather than its sentimentalized
cultivation, it is a strangely
primitive and dark culture —
the native dress looks crude
or bizarre rather than quaint;
the music sounds foreboding
and insistant rather than gay
and lilting.
• •    •
It is probable only in such
a setting that the plot of this
comedy could seem plausible
— that popular imagination
could be fevered enough to
glorify patricide as heroism.
Synge wishes to point out that
no-one experiences reality as
it is but that all outer events,
human relationships, and
even one's own personality
are conditioned by the imagination and are therefore more
products of individual fantasy
than of any existing objective
On a social and political
level this is particularly dangerous. Murder is transformed
into a brave deed — a magnificent act of rebellion. It is
only when the reality of a
murder is witnessed that one
realizes its horror and that one
learns to differentiate between
a callous act and a 'dirty deed'
• *    •
Human relationships are
equally subjective, based not
on the subjective reality of another person, but on one's
opinion of that person. Because
of this, human relationships
are always in flux and love is
a deception.
Thus Pegeen at first loves
Christie when she thinks he is
a 'brave man' who 'murdered
his Da'; she rejects him when
she finds he didn't succeed in
killing him. She betrays him
when he 'murders' him in their
sight and she realizes the horror of his crime.
Phantasy seems only fruitful when applied to oneself.
Synge's most penetrating insight is that we are all creatures of our own imagination
and that others treat us according to our own self-definition.
Under his father's domination Christie is unwilling,
silent, physically unattractive,
and despised by others. When
he asserts himself by 'killing'
his father he becomes confident and aggresive, inspiring
admiration in others.
• •    •
His new attitude releases
physical and mental powers in
him — he wins all the athletic
contests at the local fair and
begins to spread impressively
with a 'Pott's tongue'. When
his father returns, he is soon
able to dominate him in reality
as he has in his imagination.
Synge is therefore essentially optimistic. Even if one has
no control over society and
other human beings, one still
has control over himself.
The cast is as authentic as
the setting. They spread a
lyrical Irish brogue which is
necessary to convey the full
poetry of Synge's language.
The characters seem to arise
full-bodied from the landscape,
freed of that self-consciousness
which so often mars character
acting in America.
• •    *
Sioban McKenna's portrayal
of Pegeen is outstanding —
alternately fierce and tender,
yet always fresh and young.
The illusion of youth is particularly difficult for an older
actress to achieve.
It is interesting- to compare
Behan's "The Hostage" with
this play. Synge shows in a
humourous situation the extent
to which phantasy permeates
our vision of reality and its
potential danger. Behan shows
in a bitterly satirical situation
its actual dangers — the way
in which the limited ideals
created by fantasy can destroy
society: patriotism which can
lead to the murder of human
beings; social and religious
idealism which can lead to
• • •
According to Behan the dissension caused by these shortsighted ideals has prostituted
human nature. The only hope
lies in natural human affection,
which transcends parochial interests, symbolized by the
English soldier and the Irish
maid. Synge seems to believe
that the individual has the
capacity to create his personality at his own will. Behan
believes society will destroy
the personality before it is

John   mills
For the benefit of the short-
memoried (i.e. everybody) I
will recapitulate my theme
which cliff-hangs over from
last week. I was writing about
proletarian literature and
propose to look at three examples — one fake, one genuine, one borderline. Respectively they are Alan Sillitoe's
"Saturday Night and Sunday
Morning", Celine's "Journey lo
Ihe End of Ihe Night", and
Chandler Brossard's "The Bold
• •    •
If it is in the Sillitoe novel
that we encounter the non-
rebel qua non-rebel. Here's a
typical extract; (the speaker is
an English factory worker):
"Factories and labour ex^
changes and insurance offices
keep us alive and kicking —
so they say—but they're booby
traps and will suck you under
like sinking sands if you aren't
careful. Factories sweat you to
death, labour exchanges talk
you to death, insurance and tax
offices milk money from your
wages and rob you to death . . .
then the army calls you up and
you get shot to death. And if
you're clever enough to stay
out of the army you get bombed to death . . . it's a hard life
. . . if you don't stop the
bastard government from
grinding your face in the
muck, though there ain't much
you can do about it unless you
start making dynamite to blow
their four-eyed clocks out."
• •    •
That was Arthur Seaton,
archetypal non-hero of the
modern British novel; his
trademark is a subdued, castrated anti-social impulse manifested by an impotent, strident
bellow that sounds magnificent
to a half-cut audience in the
local snug on a Saturday night
but seems whining and pusillanimous when the still, small
voice says "so what?" the next
hung-over morning.
• •    •
For Arthur does not set
about making the dynamite his
government undoubtedly deserves — instead, like the rest
of the non-rebellious world, he
sweats at a job all week, lets
loose in a mild way at weekends, uses whatever rebel instincts he has as a kind of negative feedback to dampen
dangerous oscillations in his
output circuit. "I'll get the
bastards some day" is an attitude that keeps him at his
lathe, provides him with his
pay checks, fills his wardrobe
with Teddy suits. The fact that
he never will get the bastards
• never bothers him — a stick of
dynamite in his hands would
be of no more use to him than
a miracle to an atheist for,
just as the atheist thrives on
and functions by means of dissent, so is the non-rebel's life
made tolerable by the grim
smile, the biding of time, the
muttered threat, the fist shaken behind the retreating back.
Take the bitterness from Jimmy Porter, the warped ambition from Charles Lumley, the
truculence from Arthur Seaton
and back flows the Void.
• •    •
"Saturday Night and Sunday
Morning", then, is a proletarian novel only in the modern
sense of the word — it is, in
spite of its non-U milieu as
middle class as the work of,
say, Irwin Shaw. On the other
hand Arthur has one or two
characteristics which distinguish him from the bourgeois
novel's angsty heroes; 1) he
obviously leads a fairly satisfactory sex-life; 2) he does not
feel alienated from his immediate (slum) environment, from
its other inhabitants, or from
his family circle; 3) he is not
caught up in any status cobwebs; 4) he seems, in spite of
or perhaps due to his non-rebei-
Hon, to get some kick, however
mild, out of being alive. Factors 1, 3 and 4 alone are
enough to make him a Dionys-
ian figure of release for most
middle-class readers. Few
people of Arthur's background
actually read novels; — "Saturday" is aimed at non-rebels
•whose boredom is given a certain rhetoric; at proletariates
who, locked in frigid split-
levels, yearn for the steamy
humanity of the slums; it gets
its royalties as a repository of
words and gestures which middle-class ladies wish to use but
do not feel free to use: it's hero
is representative of the proletariate only in that he represents most of us — as a servo-
mechanism nulled  at comfort.

Fairy Godmother
Canada's Fairy Godmother of
the Arts is growing old and
haggard with financial worries.
The Canada Council has been
forced by ever-increasing demands upon a fixed grant to
restrict its beneficence; in Vancouver the Opera Association's
usual $10,000 grant has been
refused, and the Symphony's
provincial tour subsidy reduced.
The exceptional progr ams
for the coming season, particularly in the performing arts,
makes the reduction in financial support seem not quite so
serious in Vancouver. But can
ths comparative solvency continue; can we be sure of having such a selection of stars as
the VOA's every year? Neither
Vancouver nor any other western centre can depend solely
upon box office.
Patronage on a larger scale
is essential and the directors
of the Canada Council obviously believe that Government aid
should provide the security
upon which any artistic progress must be made. Friday, October   18,   1963

Hoot slated for showing this
coming Saturday night.

precisely what they deserve, as
the talent involved, Theodore
Bikel included, turned out a
rather uninspiring show. That
is, nobody performed as well as
they have under less grossly
commercial   conditions.
Bikel opened with a thoroughly pedestrian rendition of
Mighty Day, in which he kept
running out of breath. Maybe he had smoked too many
of the Sponsor's free cigarettes. Fortunately that item
won't be on the show.
• •    •
With the exception of an
Israeli number and a bit about
some survivorrs of World War
III, his material had less punch
than can be found on any of
his recordings. His stage patter seemed1 calculated and pedantic. This, for a wit of
Bikel's stature, was disappointing.
There were also some local
names on the program. I had
expected Tom Northcott to be
particularly careful about note
and tone control when using
the upper end of his vocal
range, but on this day of days
he exercised less discipline
than he has during casual
Sunday performances at the
Inquisition. However, Tom
recovered well when the strap
on his twelve-stringer broke
during a number.
• •    •
There was a strained edge
on Karen James' voice whenever she belted out the high
ones. Sunday at the Inquisition she was more relaxed and
her control, over a range of
about two and: a half octaves,
made Joan Baez sound like a
hog-caller. You can hear this
fantastic voice at the Inquisition all this week, along with
Tom Northcott and Bud Spencer, of Dairyland milk fame.
The Clansmen were there
with their High Church-cum-
Kingston-Trio-harmony and a
twelve-string ukelele. Also a
banjo played as a five-string
ukelele. These lads were overly concerned with choreography and precise harmonization. Evidently they had put
in a lot of practise time—so
much their performance was
antiseptically void of such
items as freshness or vitality.
• *    •
Tom Hawkins alone was up
to his usual technical competence. His banjo frailing is impressive by local standards,
and Tom's voice is about the
easiest on the ear in these
parts. Some of us, however,
are getting weary of Dark as
the Dungeon et al.

the scene: Carol Sloane. The
record was Out of the Blue

and it was well worth the
Miss Sloane has a unique
voice — nearly perfect. Her
tone is round, warm and clear;
her phrasing is that of a jazz
artist's; she shows an intelligent appreciation of lyrics; and
she sings in tune. To quote
the liner notes, "There's a respect for the music she sings,
for the meaning of a lyric, and
the mood that the composer intended to create."
• •    •
Her career began at fourteen,
singing with Providence Rhode
Island dance bands twice a
week. Later she went to Germany, France and Austria as
one of the lead singers in a
road company of Kiss Me,
Kate. After she returned, she
worked for two years with Les
Elgart's band. It was here she
first encountered arranger-
composer Bill Finegan. Her
respect for him is shown in
the fact that nine of the eleven
arrangements on this album
are his. The other two are
by Bob Brookmeyer. They're
all great, especially Little Girl
Blue, and My Ship.
After the Les Elgart tour,
she filled in for Annie Ross of
Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.
Annie suddenly took sick in
Philadelphia. Carol came
down, took some records home,
and came back the next day
with Annie's parts memorized
perfectly. Nothing that L., H.
& R. do is simple, and this was
quite an accomplishment.
• •    •
But her big break came at
the 1961 Newport Jazz Festival. She was singing late in
the afternoon as one of a series
of "lesser artists." When she
started to sing the roughly two
hundred hungry and restless
souls that were still watching
decided to stay and watch. The
payoff came when she sang
Little Girl Blue. The pianist
gave her the first note. She
sang the whole song through,
slowly, out of tempo, without
a single instrument to help her
with the pitch. When she
finished, the pianist hit the
final chord. Her intonation had
been perfect.

Her new record, Live at
30th Street, should be on the
racks by the time that you read

Brookmeyer and Clark Terry.
Both records are well worth

Two exhibits of perhaps
more interest to the student of
Canadian history than to the
artist are featured at the Fine
Arts Gallery in the Library
Basement. Continuing through
November 2, Everyman's Canada and The Applied Arts of
Early Quebec give a popular
view of 18th and 19th century
Canada and Canadians.
Thursday at 12:30: Prof. Ian
McNairn will discuss "Everyman's Canada"—a selection of
paintings and drawings from
the McCord Museum collection
at McGill.

Most of the artists represented were non - professional —
with the notable exception of
Cornelius Krieghoff—and their
works provide an eternally
fresh, unsophisticated narrative of the labours and recreational activities of Early Canada. Delight in photographic
detail and spirited animation
make no demands upon the
viewer, and surpass prose in
representational  power.
One viewing the smaller exhibition— "The Applied Arts
of Early Quebec"—cannot fail
to be impressed by the ingenuity with which Les Cana-
diens adapted traditional designs to a new environment
and to new materials. Acanthus leaves and scrollwork on
a wooden altar illustrate well
the forced, yet delightful, attempts to recreate the old in
the new. Less derivative and
even more impressive are the
sheetmetal cocks, which forcefully reveal the creative impulse behind even the most
utilitarian  handicraft.

photographs, supplemented by
actual antiques, make up an
exhibit well worth seeing.

Canadian musicians last Tuesday noon.
Michel Dussault, twenty-
year-old graduate of the Paris
Conservatoire, began his recital with the G Major Prelude

The objective clarity of the
composition was well projected by well-turned and articulate phrasing.

Beethoven's Sonata Op. 57
"Appasionaia" was performed
with thrilling technical virtuosity. Monsieur Dussault, in addition, played the poetic interludes with profound introspection. Rather disconcerting,
however, was the occasional
lapse, in the forte passages, into
brassy tone; wonderfully controlled sudden changes of colour overshadowed this slight
The Sonata "Funebre" Op.
35 by Frederick Chopin concluded the hour-long program.
Like the Appasionaia, this
composition exploited Dus-
sault's technique to the fullest
extent. The grave was especially well controlled and rich
tonally, and the allegro passages played with breath-taking facility.

examinations. And take refresher courses covering
the complex flight procedures of modern aviation.
Even have their flying skills checked four times a year
in flight simulators which cost as much as a million
dollars, yet never get an inch off the ground. TCA
pilots, however, don't mind these examinations.

The basketball Braves are a
team without a league.
Last season the Braves and
Jayvees played in the Junior
A Men's league, and both got
to the finals. This year neither
team would post a performance
bond, and as a result, the
league is minus two UBC entries.
Unlike the Jayvees, the
Braves were able to find a
Norm Watt, former player
with the Birds, and now on
the staff of the Faculty of Education, will lead the Braves
in a season of exhibition games.
The Braves, a frosh team,
will feature a number of last
year's high school stars.
Players last year with the
now defunct Jayvees must
either move up to the Birds
or join outside teams.
Bob Barazzuol, Doug Latta,
and Mel Dorey turned up for
the Birds. The remainder of
last year's Junior Varsity are
either playing for downtown
Junior Men's clubs, or not
playing at all.
The 1963 Homecoming will
not feature the usual Birds

In fact, there was no English-speaking society when
the first French Canadian
came to Alberta. They
were Oblate priests like
Father La combe.
Although most of the first
ranchers and farmers wer
English the French were a
significant group. The Calgary St. Jean Baptiste society was formed in 1888 when
the Catholic Church in Alberta was esentially French.

The bulk of French immigration came between 1900
and 1914 when French Canadians who had been forced
to leave their Quebec farms
to seek work in the less depressed areas of New England came West working
land of their own in an area
where French language
rights were supposedly guaranteed by the British North
American Act.
• •    •
But two things keptFrench
immigration well below that
of English and groups that
were to become English. A
French reluctance to migrate
held; most of the Quebecois
to their homes. And a deliberate policy of the federal
government encouraged immigration from everywhere
in the world but Quebec.
When the French did become established in Alberta
they found their language
rights were not at all secure. The constitutional
guarante of separate schools
was interpreetd strictly
along religious lines.

When the Canadian Field Hockey team disembarked
from their DC8 jet at Le Bourget Airport in Paris they
were greeted by a crowd of enthusiastic frenchmen.
Gratified that their fame had
spread so far, the Canadian
contigent walked throught the
crowds to their waiting transportation.
But their pride soon changed
to chagrin when they saw that
the enthusiasm of the French
reception was for Russian
spaceman Yuri Gagarin who
had landed a few minutes before.
The Canadians players, anxious to avenge the crowds lack
of attention observed that the
security was so tight around
the spaceman that there was
only one guard in front of the
massive Russian TU-104 jet.
With cameras in hand three
players including UBC's Vic
Warren, left their group, sidled
over to the plane and boarded.
They made their way to the
cock-pit and took a quick
sequence of photos.
Their departure was made
slower and in the accompaniment of a Russian official.

Saturday's BIG GAME between the University of Alberta and our UBC T-birds
promises to be quite a contest—if only a contest to see
which team will, have fewer
You all remember Alberta's
boast that 200 to 500 howling,
jumping students would descend on the campus.
Well, those figures have
been reduced slightly — to 35
howling, jumping students.
We can venture to explain
Maybe students at Alberta
approach UBC students'
If so, they have demonstrated a lack of sophistication in
announcing a large contingent. We, being old-hands at
not giving a damn, know that
the best way to show our indifference is to ignore the existence  of the football squad.
I have confidence that UBC
students will turn up.
The ones in the short skirts
will be hopping around on the
cinder track.
The people not in short
skirts, not from Alberta, and
not in uniform will spend
most of their time criticizing
the synchronization of the
cheer-leaders' routines. (It
was bad last week. I know—
I was there.)
Yes, indeed, I was there last
week. As I wandered across
the campus trying to figure out
where everybody was (it was
the Thanksgiving weekend,
you remember), the sound of
lusty voices crying out in unison drew me to the vaguely
familiar hulk of Varsity stadium.
"Must be lotsa fans in there
cheering," I thought. The voices
turned out to be the Thunderbirds in their pre-game exercises.
But I saw a good football
You know, this Saturday's
game may be a good one, too.
Alberta says they are going to
win. The Birds say ihey are
going to win.    I'm  gonna go.
This Saturday's game could
go a long way towards deciding the WCIAA football championship. You may not even
know that this is UBC's last
year in the conference.
It's almost certain that you
aren't aware that Alberta's
only defeat last year came at
the hands of UBC.
And if this isn't reason
enough for the Bears to come
determined to wipe out last
year's defeat, they have something else to spur them on.
They have a new coach.
He's Gino Fracas, former fullback and linebacker with the
Edmonton Eskimos.
And, remember, the Alber-
tans will have more support
than UBC. Thirty-five prairie
folk hardy enough to withstand a train trip from Edmonton will most certainly be able
to drown out the T-birds girlfriends and the UBC bench.
It will be interesting to see
just how many UBC fans will
show up. I'll get the official
attendance, subtract 35, and
give you the result next week.
If I remember the score, I'll
report that, too.
. . . best in league
to Winnipeg
UBC's Women's tennis team
travels to Winnipeg this weekend for the WCIAA Championships, to defend their title.
The golf team, which lost last
year, will try to recapture the
title which they held two years
The teams will compete
against University of Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Alberta (both Calgary and Edmonton) for the laurels.
UBC's golf team consists of
Wendy Irish, Diane Kirby and
Barb Ellis.
Liz Philpot, Libby Penwar-
den and Marilyn Orr represent
the tennis team.
Thunderbirds clap
wakes sleepy Bears
If the Birds are up, the Bears
will go under.
That's how UBC football
coach Frank Gnup evaluates
his team's chances against the
University of Alberta Golden
Bears Saturday afternoon at
Varsity Stadium.
"The game is the biggest one
of the year for us," said Gnup.
He added that the mental attitude of a football squad is important in determining how
they will play.
"If the kids are right mentally,  we  should  take  them,"
he went on.
Psychology aside, Gnup is
not looking forward to the
prospect of facing the Edmonton school. He calls their halfback Ken Nielsen "the best
back in the conference." Bear
field general Garry Smith is
another standout. The Birds
remember him as an excellent
passer, and he has already been
drafted by the Calgary Stam-
The Thunderbrds have lost
the services of Joe Haddock,
first string defensive tackle,
who has left school to enter
the seminary. Filling the vacancy left by Haddock will be
Al Eger.
Gnup plans to start Dick Gib
bons at quarterback. End Tom
Thomson will open at the
flanker back position, with
Robin Dyke and Ian Donald
manning the ends. For varsity,
Roger Hardy can be put at
quarterback, Gibbons moved to
flanker, and Thomson to an
end slot.
Last week Alberta defeated
Saskatchewan 47-23, but the
Huskies' completed more than
50% of their passes.
In preparation for Saturday's
clash, the Thunderbirds have
been adding some polish to
their hitherto spotty air attack.
On the other side of the ledger,
they have made an adjustment
in   their   defensive   setup   calculated to stop Alberta's strong
running game.
Meanwhile, the word from
Edmonton is that the Bear regulars are catching up on their
sleep after playing almost
every minute of every game.
Alberta's policy of running
up scores against already beaten opponents has left its own
players exhausted.
Their last game must have
thrown a scare into them. They
beat the Saskatchewan Huskies
47-23 (compared to 78-0 a week
before), and had a 21-0 lead
at the half.

Castro bearded knight
in shining armor-Cox
TORONTO (CUP)—The United States can bomb Cuba
from the face of the earth, but Fidel Castro's ideals will not
die, according to Cedric Cox,-p"
defeated member of the B.C.
Cox was speaking to University of Toronto students on
"Cuba, with Eyes Wide Open".
He compared Castro's long
rule with that of George Washington during the American
Revolution. History students in
the audience disagreed until
they were over-ruled for lack
of time.
Later, Cox condemned the
sudden American switch from
lauding Castro as a hero after
his overthrow of Batista's regime, to reviling him as the
original bushy-bearded villain
of the day.
Cox called the Cuban revolution an agrarian revolt by
Cubans tired of 65-years of
U.S. domination of their land
and industry.

How Canadian Nickel helps bring pasteurized milk to Iranian children
Until a few years ago, fresh, pasteurized milk was virtually unknown to a great many Iranian youngsters. But, today, thanks to
those interested in the welfare of the world's less fortunate children, a modern milk-processing plant outside Teheran is providing
enough pasteurized milk daily for thousands of little Iranians. And Canadian nickel is helping, just as it does in similar projects
in other parts of the globe. Nickel stainless steel is used for the tanks, pasteurizers, homogenizers and other equipment in the plant.
Why nickel stainless steel? Because nickel stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and very easy to keep spotlessly clean.
The growth of nickel markets at home and abroad helps strengthen Canada's economy and helps provide jobs for Canadians.
