AB RICHARDS' TREK . . . following rocky road
Students got stoned in '22;
Ab Richards was responsible
BY MIKE HORSEY
A parade wound its way
through Vancouver's narrow
streets of 1922.
It broke up and hundreds
of students travelled by
tram to Tenth and Sasamat.
They marched through
the bush, each carrying a
stone, to where the present
Cairn is.
• •    •
The stones were meant to
symbolize student determination to build a university
at the Point Grey site.
And the man responsible
for much of the organization
of the Great Trek of 1922
will be honored at Thursday's pep meet in the gym.
Dr. A. E. "Ab" Richards,
AMS president in 1922-23
will receive this year's Great
Trekker award.
• •    •
Dr. Richards did much of
the organizational work con
nected with the Trek; he
and student organizers were
responsible for collecting
more than 55,000 signatures
in support of the Point Grey
site for UBC.
And after the trek he and
other students took the petition   containing   the   signa-
AB RICHARDS
. . . lead trek
tures to Victoria and presented them to Premier John
Oliver.
UBC started to rise soon
after.
Thus the tradition of student autonomy which sets
UBC apart from other universities was started.
• •    *
And Dr. Richards continued to be a leader.
After finishing post graduate work in 1949 he entered
the Canadian department of
agriculture.
• •    •
He served as a negotiator
for the department in the
European Economic Community discussions in Geneva.
Last year's Great Trekker
was former UBC president
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie.
Program
centres on
new arena
BY DENIS STANLEY
Feature attraction of this year's Homecoming will be
the official opening of the new Thunderbird Sports Centre.
With  the advent of  winter i    ., ,  M
sports on campus, the homecoming committee p 1 a n ned
much of its program around
the new arena.
Prior to the official opening

twen Great Trekker A. E.
"Ab" Richards and Dr. Norman A. MacKenzie.
OLYMPIANS TO PLAY
The hockey game follows immediately with Memorial Cup
champions, Edmonton Oil
Kings meeting Father David
Bauer's Olympians.
Homecoming Queen candidate will be presented between
the second and third periods.
They will not come out onto
the ice but will be announced
over the PA system by Mary
Lee Magee.
The   Pep   Band   and   cheerleaders will   be  out to   cheer
for Bauer's Boys.
HOP TO FOLLOW

mezzanine until 12:30.
Admission for the after party
will be included in the price
of the ticket to the game.
Skates can be rented from the

funds, is located in the boondocks of the Aggie fields, at
Wesbrook Cres. and Agronomy

arena during the homecoming
is a men's Bonspiel, the first
to be organized in the Curling
rink.
The bonspiel runs Thursday,
Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Cost is $22 for each entry.
1 Pep meet
I the best-
| no joshin   _
Thursday's homecoming pep
meet promises to be the best
yet.
It can't help it.
It's featuring drawing cards
that any promoter would give
his gold toothpick to have.
Among them, one of American's foremost folk singers,
Josh White, noted for translating the troubles of America's
Negroes into sad-sweet music.
GREAT ACCLAIM
Folksinger White is noted as
a master of interpretive folk
music — a reputation he received for his trade through a
tough apprenticeship learning
the meaning of life and death
and how to interpret these to
song.
- So great, in fact, is his acclaim, that White was a protege
of the late Mrs. Franklin Delano Roosevelt and moved the
King of Denmark to sit on the
floor and join the common
people in singing spirituals.
TEAMS  INTRODUCED
For the guys, the 17 queen
candidates will be introduced.
Curvascious cheerleaders
should bulge eyes even wider.
And girls, you haven't been
forgotten for UBC's husky football and hockey teams will be
introduced.
Another highpoint of the pep
met is presentation of the annual great trekker award to
Dr. A. E. (Ab) Richards, an active organizer of the Great
Trek of 1922-23.
Parade has
a snowy theme
The theme of Saturday's
Homecoming Parade will be
winter sports.
The parade will form at
Georgia and Thurlow at
10:00 a.m. It will proceed
along Georgia to Burrard
and along Burrard to Hasting; from Hastings to Granville and down Granville to
Alberni where it will break
up.
It will reform at Wesbrook Crescent and will
parade through the Stadium.
About 28 entries are expected. Page 2

Published once every Homecoming especially for
Homecoming and for you. This Special Homecoming
Edition is produced to help Publicize Homecoming and
spread the true Homecoming Spirit so never again will
it be said: "Homecoming—so what?"
Homecoming enlarged
Tihe 1963 Homecoming Committee has endeavored to provide an extensive program of events for the 37th Annual
Homecoming.
Each event has been planned with consideration for the
varied interests of the huge UBC campus.
The committee examined previous homecomings exhaustively and has come up with several new ideas and has enlarged upon previously successful events. Perhaps the biggest difference from previous years is the introduction of a
Hockey game to the sports schedule. This will be a rousing
event with entertainment being provided between periods and
a free sock hop and skating party to follow.
First-class entertainment has been provided at both the
Pep Rally and the dances.
Homecoming, however, is not limited to student celebrations. Homecoming gives graduates an opportunity to return
to their Alma Mater and to see old friends and professors.
I hope that all undergraduates will go out of their way
to welcome back Alumni. It is up to us to show them that the
spirit of their Alma Mater still prevails and is greater perhaps
even than they remember it.
BOB BAILEY
Chairman
1963 Student Homecoming Committee
Bright, new look
A return to the Commodore, the battlefield of old, will
be the grand finale of Homecoming 1963.
Taking the Alumni Ball back to the familiar Granville
Street location will be a nostalgic wind-up to Homecoming
celebrations that are planned with a fuller purpose and
broader meaning than those in the past.
Homecoming '63 has a bright new look. This year's program indicates the tremendous strides forward the university
is taking.
The 3,000 Alumni expected back at Point Grey will be
shown the startling new structures shooting up all over
campus.
They'll be greeted at the Homecoming luncheon at the
new "food commissary"—a handsome addition to the campus.
The theme is "The University is People—Meet the
People." Graduates will be greeted with something more personal than rows of buildings; they'll mix at the casual reception with faculty, student leaders and administrators.
And going hand-in-hand with progress at UBC will be a
space seminar and display of one of the space capsules used
by an American astronaut.
Going along with the new-look Homecoming, Alumni
can inspect the new Winter Sports Centre and the new glamor
team, the UBC Olympians hockey team. They'll clash with
Memorial Cup champions, Edmonton Oil Kings, on Friday
night, Oct. 25.
Next day, of course, will be the Homecoming football
game as Thunderbirds, defending Western Canadian champions, go against University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
There'll be a duplicate bridge tournament, a bonspiel
golf for both men and the ladies, and even a home economics
lecture.
To all of you, may I extend the warmest invitation to
particiapte in Homecoming '63.

Tears of nostalgia
to flow Saturday
BY  RON   THODY
A few tears may fall Saturday, but they will be happy
ones. Tears of nostalgia always are.
For doubtless many memories of long-ago campus days
will be re-kindled in the minds
of 80 old-time alumni expected
to take part in a tour of UBC
Saturday.
But the old, familiar sites of
campus will be mingled with
new, gleaming educational facilities which have sprouted up
out of Point Grey bushland.
POT-BELLIED  STOVES
Architects who learned in
shabby pre -1923 classrooms,
magistrate's who studied law
by pot-bellied stoves, and researchers who watched the
first real research buildings
rise, will be among the touring
alumni.
What they will see will be
foreign but friendly.
Included in the one-and-one
half hour tour are the new
Physics building, Freddy Wood
theatre, Winter Sports Arena,
Frederick Lessair building and
education building.
JITNEY RIDES
Aging alumni will be spirited across the vast campus in
open-air PNE jitney carts pulled by tractors.
Later, they will have the
chance to recall among each
other the old days — long
gone but always remembered
— at a coffee party scheduled
in the Thea Koerner Grad
Student Centre at 3:30 p.m.
Malcolm Clay, student organizer of the tour, said he expects only the older alumni to
take part.
"It would mean much more
to them than the more recent
grads," he said.
spots, famous during the forties, has made many great
recordings; among them, "If
I Didn't Care," a million-seller.
The show will take place at
both dances.
Tickets for the dances are
on sale at the AMS office in
Brock Hall and at the hockey
game on Friday night. Price
is $3.50 a  couple.
Brock to speak
in Brock Hall
Dave Brock will speak in
Brock Hall Friday at noon.
He is the son of Dean and
Mrs. R. W. Brock, for whom
the student centre was named.
Brock graduated from UBC
with a B.A. in 1930. He did
post graduate work in English
at Harvard and later took a
degree in Law.
Brock has been with the
CBC for the past six years and
is the originator of the show
"Some of Those Days."
His talk, a part of the Homecoming program, is entitled
"What Am I Doing Here?" Wednesday, October 23,   1963

homecoming without a homecoming football game.
This year's feature attraction
will be a game between the
University of Saskatchewan

PINKY'S AGAIN
Pinkerton's men will again
be out to check bulging brief
cases to see if they jingle.
Last year they were quite
successful in finding the occasional bottle but enough contraband had eluded them that
events 'became jovial by the
end of the game.
The Birds even won.
HAVING A BLAST
Half-time entertainment will
again be supplied by the red-
breasted rioters. This year they
are not sending up a rocket
but they will be having a
blast.
Peter Shepard and Steve
Whitelaw have guaranteed the
biggest lampoon of Grey Cup
since the riots in Vancouver
Hotel in 1958 and 1960.
UBC's offense will be supplied by quarterbacks Roger
Hardy and Dave Gibbons and
halfback Norm Thomas, who
have done most of the work
in the Birds first games.
Last weekend, the Birds held
Alberta's Golden Bears to a
44-33 win. Alberta beat the
Huskies 78-0 the week before.
Starting quarteback, Jack
Donahue, is back with the
Huskies for his fourth season
and is known for his aerial attack.
