Mystery
illness
hits 120
A mysterious illness has
struck 120 students living in
residences.
Twelve of those sick required hospitalization.
Most of the students became
sick Tuesday night, housing
director John Hgar said.
"It could be the food, the
water or perhaps even a fast-
spreading virus," he said.
But since all who are sick
did not eat the same type of
food, the chances of it being
food poisoning are very slim.
"But we've sent food samples
to the public health laboratory
for anaylsis.
"Also we've a few sickness
cases among students Who did
not eat here Tuesday evening."
University Residence Association president Richard Thor-
burn, who became sick himself early Wednesday morning,
said a total of 120 people were
sick in the three residence
areas.
"There were 30 in bed at
Fort Camp, 20 at Acadia and
70 in the Lower Mall," Thor-
burn said.
"I had liver and bacon at
supper Tuesday night," Thor-
burn said.
"Wednesday morning I felt
sick to my stomach and had
a fever. I got up, tried to eat
breakfast, and then went back
to bed."
Haar said most of the students exhibited the same symptoms that Thorburn did.
"It passes off quickly," Haar
said.
"Many students who were
feeling pretty rough Tuesday
night were fine by Wednesday
afternoon."
Haar said as soon as he begun getting reports of the
sickness he sent members of
the housing staff through every
room in all university residences.
"We wanted to find out exactly how many were sick,
and make sure we found anyone who might have been too
sick to attract attention.'"
Thorburn said the residence
council would be taking up
the matter.
"If there's some thing
wrong with either the food or
the water we want it investigated."
Meanwhile the water in both
Fort Camp and Lower Mall has
been described as a dirty yellow.

MANY FACES of a student council meeting are snared by
Ubyssey camera ace, Don Hume. These councillors sat
through a seven-hour session Monday night. Some slept,
others snickered, others slurped. The meeting didn't
finish its business — an extra session had to be held
Wednesday.

The Ubyssey news department will be holding a writing seminar noon Friday.

Questions about The Ubyssey style, organization and
policy will be discussed.
Bookstore called
book monopoly'
BY JOHN KELSEY
UBC bookstore gets a bigger rake-off than any downtown store.
And the bookstore could reduce its prices on texts by as
much as 20 per cent and still make a profit.
This is what a downtown book source told The Ubyssey
Wednesday.
The source asked that he be
not identified.
"Because the bookstore sells
texts (any book used in the
university curriculum) in volume quantities, it should be
able to charge the text price,"
he said. "This is 20 per cent below the trade (downtown)
price."
A few books other than purely technical works, however,
are issued in a special text edition—20 per cent cheaper than
the trade edition. He said the
bookstore sells these at the
proper price.
"The bookstore has an effective monopoly on all technical
books and text editions," he
said.
"Downtown stores don't
stock these books because the
university is the only market
for them."
"The bookstore makes a further 10 per cent profit on
American trade books to be
used as texts by not having to
pay duty," he said.
(The Canada Customs' Act
exempts texts from duty
charges.)
"A downtown store has
great difficulty proving that a
book will be used for text purposes only."
In addition, he said, increased liasion between the
faculty and the bookstore
could reduce prices further.
"It would seem that there is
no one person responsible for
contacting the administration
and then ordering books well
in advance.
"The bookstore seems to
leave the buying until far too
late, then orders in dribs and
drabs," he said.
"If the bookstore ordered all
its books at once, costs would
go down by virtue of reduced
freight rates."
He said there is no discount
for volume buying.
Small book orders come by
mail, while large orders are
shipped as bulk freight.
He said shipping by mail
costs three times as much as
by bulk freight.
In some cases, the bookstore
does order in large lots, he
said. But in all cases, it sells
the books at the same price as
if they had been shipped
singly.
"Unlike any other bookstore
in the city, the university can
buy directly from certain publishers," he said.
This avoids the agent's cut,
and adds to the profit, the book I
source said.
Ogle a bit,
sing a bit,
for 35 cents
Folk-singing, ogling and inspiration—and all for 35 cents!
That's today's homecoming
pep meet, at 12:30 noon in the
War Memorial Gym.
The folk-singing: by one of
the best, Negro balladeer Josh
White.
The ogling: By the males in
the audience when 17 homecoming queen candidates and
UBC's cheerleaders claim the
spotlight.
The inspiration: When the
annual Great Trekker Award
is presented to Dr. Ab Richards, probably the man most
responsible for the first Great
Trek of 1922, when he was
AMS president.
More inspiration: When
UBC's rugged football and
hockey players are introduced.,
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.

Its sma
but its
a start
BY STEVE BROWN
UBC's new faculty of dentistry will begin next year — in
a  small way.
Admission to the faculty will
be limited to 15 students the
first year but will be increased
to 40 the following year.
A four-year program of
study will lead to the DMD
degree (doctor of dental medi-
cine).
First and second year studies
will include existing faculty
of medicine courses plus a few
special dentistry courses.
Third and fourth years will
be clinical practice.
A three-storey 67,000 sq. ft.
dentistry building will be finished by September, 1966,
when the first class has reached third year.
The building will be in the
health center complex opposite
the Memorial gym.
Prerequisites for admission
to the new faculty are three
years Science, including specified  courses.
Interested students should
write to the Dean, Faculty of
Dentistry, for application
forms and further information.

French haven't
read BNA act
French Canadians apparently haven't read the British
North America Act, the editor of the Canadian Union of
Students' magazine, Campus Canada, charged Tuesday.
"They haven't  read   it   be
cause they don't like what
they'll find there," said Roger
McAfee.
McAfee said the French are
basing their present notion of
Confederation being a union of
two equal states, on what they
claim the BNA act says.
"It just doesn't say that,"
McAfee said.
• •    •
"The Act is clearly an instrument for the confederation
of three provinces, one of
which was broken into the two
provinces of Ontario and Quebec by the act itself.
"They cannot justify their
present stand on the BNA act
no matter how hard they try,"
he said.
McAfee was taking a negative position on CUS for the
purposes of the debate. He said
later he was in favor of the
new organizational program.
He and two other delegates
to the recent conference in Edmonton, AMS president Malcolm Scott and Ross Munro
answered questions from more
than 150 persons attending the
meeting.
• •    •
McAfee   charged    that   the
French two-state concept had
been reflected by French-Canadian delegates at the conference.
"They (the French) said
that Confederation was a
union of two states," he said.
He also criticized the form
of the new student union.
By giving equal power to
French and English-speaking
students, McAfee charged the
delegates to the conference
were encouraging national
splits along racial lines.
(CUS was formed at Edmonton to replace the defunct
National Federation of Canadian University Students.)
UBC President Malcolm
Scott disagreed with McAfee's
assessment of  CUS.
• •    •
"The most important thing
about the new union is that
it produces a meeting of
minds," he said.
He said CUS will fail unless
students take a responsible
role and seek an exchange of
views between cultural groups.
But he said that he was impressed with the complete
change in attitude at the Edmonton congress. Of the successor to the NFCUS, he said,
"It's got a new name, new
people and a good chance."
A third delegate Ross Munro   was   also optimistic   about

the results of the congress. He
defended the French-Canadian
desire for equal representation
in CUS.
"The majority rule does not
always apply in a country
where there are two cultural
groups,"  he said.
He emphasised the unity at
the congress pointing out that
it had accepted the proposal
for the formation of CUS unanimously. "I venture to say
the French speaking delegates
went home feeling far less
sympathetic to the separatist
movement in their own province," he said.
Munro listed the activities
carried on by NFCUS to be
continued by CUS.
These include: A travel plan
through which students may
travel at reduced fares; the
awarding of various interregional scholarships; the production of the national magazine, Campus Canada; a student life insurance program;
to help student governments;
and aid to students seeking
housing and employment.
He admitted NFCUS had
fallen down on its publicity for
these activities, and this was
due to a lack of efficiency in
the organization.
AAackie gets
travel post
A former travel counsellor
was appointed AMS charter
flight manager by council
Monday.
New manager, Norman Mac-
kie, a first-year law student,
told council he met many unhappy Canadian students while
he was working in the government's London tourist
bureau.
"They don't know how to
travel and act in Europe," he
said.
He said he will run an educational program, concurrently
with his flight promotion
duties.
Mackie was one of four applicants interviewed by council
for the post. Inducement is a
half-fare on one round trip, or
full fare on the second flight of
the two organized.

QUIXOTE
All things must pass, and as
such mass addiction to inanities as the hula hoop fad or
the Chubby Checker craze
eventually collapsed of their
own puerility, so, mercifully
has the elephant joke turned
skyward its great flat feet
(acquired from jumping out
of trees or for use in extinguishing burning ducks ignited
while using their webbed feet
to put out forest fires.)
At the peak of the elephant
joke fad, the innocuous questions and their ridiculous answers were humorous if for
no other reason than their
very asininity.
• •    •
Yes, we laughed and laughed at the pokes at pachyderms, but tell me, did you
ever stop to consider how the
elephants felt about it?
I dropped over to the zoo
the other day, taking a bag of
salted peanuts for Horace, an
elephant with whom I happen
to be on speaking terms.
Before I had a chance to
say anything, Horace asked
"How do you tell the difference between a people and a
blueberry?"
"People aren't round and
blue," he shot out, not giving
me a chance to answer, either.
"Ha, ha, ha," he laughed
bitterly, "pretty funny, eh?
How the hell do you like
them apples, er, blueberries,
white man?"
"Oh, come off it, Horace,"
I said, "don't be so thin-
skinned."
"See!" he trumpeted, "there
you go again." And he started
to cry, all two and a half tons
of him, an awe-inspiring sight
even for the hardest of heart.
• •    •
"Come,   now,   Horace,"   I
said, tossing him a peanut,
"don't take it so hard."
"Well, dammit, you white
men make fun of everything," he choked out, "you
never stop to think of whose
feelings you're hurting.
"Elephants got pride," he
continued adamantly, "I
think you guys should be a
little more  considerate."
I comforted him as best I
could, being out-weighed
somewhat, but using the salted peanuts to console him.
"Don't worry about it,
Horace. Besides, the fad is
pretty well finished," I said,
"and people didn't really
mean it, anyway."
• •    •
"I guess you're right," he
admitted, helping himself to
the remainder of the peanuts.
"Say," he said, brightening,
"why do hippotamuses wear
running shoes?"
Warily, I admitted I didn't
know.
"So they won't slip while
running on lily pads," he answered, chuckling. "And why
do hippopotamuses have
wrinkled feet?"
Again I didn't know.
"From lacing their running
shoes too tight," he roared,
setting the ground to shaking.
I left Horace laughing
there, glad to see him happy
again.

FEARLESS TOM . . . Shrum-where in Burnaby
Daring rescue
Tom gets lost
in darkest SFA
BY   TOM   WAYMAN
BURNABY MOUNTAIN (Staff)—I got lost.
There I was, Tuesday, striding fearlessly up the mountain
— over boulders, under logs,
up trees, and down TV broadcasting antennas — all in
search of SFA.
Suddenly, I stopped short
in the middle of a particularly
scraggly-looking glade, struck
by the thought that I wasn't
sure  where I was.
This must mean, I reasoned,
I'm lost.
Which turned out to be true.
Nothing daunted, I released
one of the pigeons I carry
under my hat.
"Help," the message said.
"I'm lost."
Having done all that was
humanly possible, I then lay
down and went to sleep.
Meanwhile, back at The
Ubyssey office, a relief expedition was setting out.
Burpy Stanley, Sports Editor, who with only a broken
collarbone was the fittest of
the editors, limped determinedly out into the Tuesday evening gloom.
Through hazards and adventures all that night the sturdy
Stanley staggered.
Finally, early Wednesday
morning, on the side of Burnaby   Mountain,   a   ceremony
occurred which in years to
come will continue to thrill
and inspire the hearts of men.
There I lay, snoring softly,
when with a mighty crash and
a few muttered curses, into
the clearing lurched Stanley.
There was a moment's
silence.
This was inevitable as I was
still asleep and Stanley was readjusting his  collarbone.
Prodding me with his boot,
(sajferty-toed), he cried: ,lMr.
Wayman, I presume?"
To which I answered: "Ah,
Mr.  Stanley."
What a moment. To think
that there in the wilds of
Burnaby two reasonably civilized Ubyssey staffers could
actually meet.
But do not think that due to
my cursory treatment of the
incident I was not grateful
for my rescue.
Do not think I wanted to
sneak back down the mountain
the next day to get back in
time for Homecoming.
Far from it.
Indeed, as I plodded once
more up the mountain, shown
the right road by my relentless  rescuer, I said to myself:
"Shrumbody up there must
like me."
(frosh) election was unofficially foisted onto me," Dennis
Browne, undergraduate societies committee chairman,
stated in a report to council
Monday night.
"Each time I made a ruling
there were a few executive officers ready and willing to
overrule it," he continued.
WORST OFFENDERS
"The worst offenders were
the second vice - president,
(Byron Hender), the secretary,
(Marnie Wright) and the first
vice-president (Jim Ward)-
As a result, said Browne, the
rules were incorrect and misleading.
"To the best of my knowledge," he said, "none of the
constitutional require m e n t s
were complied with."
"The result of the whole
fiasco was considerable confusion and many hard feelings,"  Browne   said.
Browne recommended the
elections be discontinued.
POLL MIXUP
Council heard verification
from Gordon Gaibraith, frosh
orientation chairman, of a poll
mixup, in which only two out
of three publicized voting
places materialized.
On a motion by Mike Coleman, Arts undergrad president, the matter was tabled.
It will be discussed next Monday.
Jason Leask, newly-elected
Frosh President, did not defend the election.
STIFLED
"Candidates were stifled
from campaigning," he said,
''by poor publicity."
He added more frosh than
the 400 who voted are interested but could not find a place
to vote.
A poll in front of Buchanan
104 did not materialize, and a
poll the Forestry undergrad
society was responsible for
was obscured by the sale of
forestry tickets to the faculty's
annual dance, he said.
If another election is called,
Leask said, candidates should
be reimbursed for what they
spent on the last campaign.
"And from the point of view
of a defeated candidate, I think
there should be another election," he added.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1963
Stop the press
It disturbs us bright-eyed young scribes to read of
the demise of yet another daily newspaper, the second-
largest one in the U.S. at that.
But, although we haven't yet achieved the pinnacle
of cynicism that the booze-belting, humorless daily rewrite man has, we can't say we're surprised to see the
New York Mirror go down.
This is a business that, by nature, doesn't have many
golden shafts of light running through it. There are few-
Walter Lippmans around to soak up any stray prestige
that floats journalism's way.
Look at Pierre Berton, in our books one of the best
there is (he started at The Ubyssey just after the war).
For his success in writing, he is despised by even the
most harmless of people (the Knights of Columbus, for
instance), to say nothing of the public officials and businessmen he has at times devastatingly embarrassed.
No, newspaper work isn't-the most prestigious, and
it isn't even very personally rewarding any more. It's
been said, so truthfully, that there is nothing the general
public thinks they know more about than how a newspaper should be run.
Wayne Robinson and John Diefenbaker never had so
many grandstand quarterbackers of second-guessers.
Then we take a look at the business end of a newspaper, nine times out of ten run by a man who has money,
business sense, but not a damn bit of knowledge or interest
about newspapers, in the professional journalist's sense
which we'd like to think exists.
We look at the staggering economic problems facing
today's publishers and our initiative sags, sort of like
your jawbone would if you saw some of the figures.
Then, in a way, we understand why the Mirror
folded. We understand why the Vancouver Times will
never hit the streets, or if it does, will never survive six
months.
We understand why there are only a couple of dozen
cities in North America fortunate enough to have two
independently-owned newspapers to read and choose from.
We shudder at the thought of someone like Max Bell,
who well may possess all the best intentions, owning six
of the major papers in Western Canada (and Southam
owning the rest), just in the way that these newspapers
shudder at the thought of government control.
We shed a tear for the New Westminster Columbian,
a fine old daily that's been around for years, but which
likely won't survive 1964 (it's already in the grip of its
banker).
We tolerate the Vancouver Sun, crammed with advertising on days like last Thursday.
What we can't understand is who's to blame for this,
well, degeneration.
Is it television and radio? We could refute that position, if we were fired-up.
Is it the public, which is putting up with the situation?   Maybe.
Is it the journalists themselves, or rather the people
who work on newspapers who'd like to think they're
journalists?   Possibly.
Is it the advertisers, the businessmen, the governments who tax, pressure, and bully the press?   Perhaps.
We think we'll just forget about it and go for a few
beers.
And next year, we'll starch our collars, pick the lint

"Doesn't mean SFA to me."
Bull from Durham
- ,s * ^**, V4"
By Fred Fletchei
Say no with a smile
DURHAM, North Carolina
—Just nine miles from this
teeming tobacco centre, which
incidentally plays host to
Duke University ("the Harvard of the South") is Chapel
Hill, a university town
through and through.
In fact, there is not much in
Chapel Hill that isn't directly
connected with the University
of North Carolina. The university operates the power
and light company, the telephone system and even the
sewage disposal. (Imagine living in a town completely run
by Buildings and Grounds!)
• • •
The most striking thing
about the main street is that
just across from the campus
is a string of houses adorned
with Greek letters instead of
addresses.
Them's the fraternities.
What's more the sorority
houses are nicely interspersed with the fraternity
houses. (They know what university life is all about, eh,
Ralph?).
The fact is, though, that
not everyone's a Greek at
UNC. This article from The
Daily Tar Heel, one of the
few American college newspapers that operate independently of both administration
and student government, tells
why:
There are probably not twa
freshmen entering the University this fall who are unaware
of the existence of fraternities.
And it is a well-maintained
fact that there are very few
more than that who know
anything about the mysterious
orders.
And for the purpose of
trying to keep everybody
"equal," fraternity affiliates
(except for those few hundred
who participate in what is
termed "dirty rush") will
supply little information and
fewer facts to those who may
be curious.
• •    •
When the stampede to get
new pledges begins, the
brothers will say many things,
all of them friendly and none
of them controversial, in order to create certain impressions about fraternities in
general and theirs in particular.
He notices immediately that
smiling is the thing to do
whether he feels like it or not,
and as he glances down the
gauntlet of grinning manni-
kins, he is glad that he chose
to wear dark socks with his
Weejuns and a Madras jacket
so he will be indistinguishable from the milling throng.
• •    •
Though   only   21%   of  the
student body is active in fraternity life at Carolina, the
impression is that everybody
is affiliated—unless, of course,
he didn't make his grades.
Strangely enough, slightly
over half the freshman class
didn't make their grades last
fall, but the brothers will assure the rushees that pledge-
ship doesn't take any extra
time, and a "C" average
comes easy anyway.
There are those things that
will not vary from house to
house like the smiles, the wel
come, the party room, the
number of brothers, the dress;
but an observant rushee will
notice that they are not ALL
alike.
A DKE may ask you what
prep school you went to.
The PiKAs and KAs may
squirm a little when a Yankee is introduced.
•    •    •
An SAE may play "who do
you know in Atlanta?"
The rushee wil not, of
course, ask the Phi Delts—
or anyone else for that matter
—about discriminatory clauses.
But even if the rushee is a
Yankee who didn't go to prep
school, knows no one from
Atlanta, and did ask someone
about discriminatory clauses,
the smiles would still be
there.
For the rushee is notified
only by a note on his door
that the smiling brothers
actually thought he was a disgusting insult to the House.
The merits of fraternities,
it is true, will not be presented here but in the House,
and one needn't accept this
as the only side of the question, but it is important to
realize that the fraternities
which Barry Goldwater has
called bulwarks against Communism are the same fraternities which tie strings to
one's freedom of association,
freedom of speech and religion, and which often bluntly
reject the principles of democracy  and  liberal  education.
SUGGESTION: Ask a UBC
fraternity man if life is much
different in a Canadian fraternity. Thursday, October 24,   1963

LETTERS
Materialism
Editor,  The Ubyssey:
Last spring the AMS went
to the people and asked them
to sign petitions to inform the
government that they were
willing to have more of
"their" money spent on education.
We collected around a
quarter million signatures
from people who were willing to sacrifice some material
gain, such as new highway
sections, for education.
Most of these people believed us when we told them
we were in a desperate financial crisis, as indeed we are.
But who is going to believe
us again if we come up with
a four-million-dollar playpen
for Brock types after representing ourselves as being in
need of such money for other
purposes, such as salaries, expansion of the library, etc.?
Sure, it's the students'
money, but if the average
taxpayer was willing to make
a sacrifice for us, at least we
should help ourselves. For
the sake of higher education,
I urge that we all carefully
consi4er the SUB issue and
vote accordingly in the
November referendum.
KEITH  McLEOD

Beautiful Ash . . .
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Valentin Sawadsky's comments on the "Bitter Ash"
(Bitter and Beauty, Oct. 17),
"I am almost embarrassed to
say," are absurd.
Art forms are hardly restricted to Sawadsky's concepts of beauty, but comparisons are restricted to validity
—"Seul ou avec d'autres"
was made in lieu of a U of M
annual theatre production
and, therefore, allocated a
large budget by the student
government. The rather close
community of French Canadian intellectuals hovering
about the University, the
CBC and the National Film
Board, might also be taken
into account.
The question one should
ask about the Bitter Ash is
whether it has any value. It
is in the tradition of Eiscus-
tein, Corteau or Resnais (I
am not comparing quality), in
which the film is the form of
communication chosen by an
artist, or is it rather the mere
Hollywood or TV reporting
of technicians?
The Bitter Ash fails in that
it is completely on the conscious level. The essence of
art involves the moving of
emotions via unconscious, as
well as conscious, communication. If a "work of art" appeals to the conscious level of
understanding alone, it degenerates into essay writing
or fare for academic journals.
This is not meant as criticism of the technique used in
the film. On the contrary, I
was surprised at the quality
of production given the circumstances. Neither am I saying that the technique of the
"non - plot," "running - notes"
films cannot reach artistic
levels as in Chabrol's "The
Cousins" or "Breathless."
The Bitter Ash certainly does
not make it.

Look at stars
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In The Ubyssey, dated
Oct. 11, Jack Ornstein wrote
an article containing the
phrase, quote: "the inevitable
conclusion that there's no
God".
This is the most absurd
statement I have ever heard
in my life. It is something
which only a fool or an insane person might come up
with.
Could you imagine a son,
financed and looked after by
his parents from birth to manhood turning on his parents
when he is on his own and
saying: "You do not exist for
me—I am what I am through
my own efforts and I am indebted to no one for my
present state in life!"? Very
obviously this does not happen. Why, then, should anyone deny that there is a God?
Just because we cannot see
God is no reason to say that
He does not exist. Must we,
as university students, become so little-minded that we
believe in only what we can
see, feel, or observe with our
senses? If that were the case,
half of the subject matter we
are presently taught could be
questioned. Nobody has ever
seen an electron, but we believe in the existence of such
particles.
If the person who does not
believe in God would only do
some logical reflecting, he
could easily reason that there
has to be a God. An ideal
time for contemplation would
be a clear star-lit night. Looking up into the heavens, one
can see a myriad of stars and
other planets. Immediately, a
number of questions will fill
the mind, such as: "How did
they get there, how did our
earth come into existence,
why is there such perfect order between day and night
and the different cycles of
the year?" Then the mind
begins to reason in such a
way—"This could not have
happened just by chance,
for the characteristic of
chance is disorder and inconsistency, and this is certainly
not seen in the workings of
the universe. Therefore, I believe there must be some
supernatural Being who has
created the universe and put
order into it. The universe
could not have created itself,
because it would already
have to exist to be the creator
and existing; there would be
no need for it to create itself.
This shows we that an external Being created the universe, and this Being is called
God, who is eternal and possesses supernatural powers.

BACKGROUND
Open House leaves us
open to bad publicity
By ROGER  McAFEE
For the next four months,
students are going to be deluged with information and
statements concerning Open
: House.
And the committee will
likely come crying to many
of you for help.
Open House is an extravaganza held every three years
at which time, for two or
three days, the university is
"open" for visits of students'
parents and interested persons.
• •    •
The object of the exercise,
regardless of how euphemistically it is put, is to get
more monetary support for
the university.
We're after this support
either through outright donations or through pressure on
the provincial government by
those who come here and
who are subsequently impressed.
This is a very laudable
idea. Even Bennett knows we
need more money.
But is a three-day "circus"
the best way to get this support?    I think not.
Consider the scene:
• •    •
We've got about 50,000
people out here. They spend
hours walking around our
large campus.
They spend hours admiring our buildings. They spend
hours viewing expensive
equipment. They spend hours
admiring our ultimate campus plan (wherever and whatever that is).
They are told, rather proudly, we are in the process of
opening six new buildings.
They see the new fine arts
centre, the new theatre, a
whole flock of brand-new
residences, a brand-new education building. This building is having an addition
built before the cement on
the new one has really set.
• •    •
Then we really outdo ourselves by proudly pointing to
the three huge derricks, the
most prominent things on the
campus, even now erecting
more new buildings.
But buildings are not our
only pride,
We point proudly to the
many expensive — in both
time and money — displays
our more than 100 extracurricular clubs have put up.
The list of things we show
these visitors could fill the
rest of this paper.
Then comes the pitch.
We show them a few shacks
on the campus and tell them
we need more money.
Sure, and they're liable to
believe us when they've just
been shown equipment and
buildings appraised at $65
million.
• •    •
These people are never
told, perhaps because it is almost impossible to tell them
with the present type of
Open House program, that we
need the money for things we
are unable to show them.
The method we use now
has about as much chance of
succeeding as a fellow driving a new Cadillac has of
convincing you he's broke.
Oh, perhaps one of the
guides will mumble something that we need more
money to pay professors an
increased salary. The visitor,
who likely earns about $2,000
a year less than most faculty
members, will likely say to
his wife on the way home:
"Imagine, wanting to pay a
man more, when he works
only seven months a year.
Hell, I work a damned sight
longer than that for a third
less."
• •    •
I'm not saying these reasons for needing more money
are not valid. I believe they
are. But, we're not going to
convince the public of this by
our present approach.
Our present Open House
chairman says the main reason for Open House is not to
get money, but to  show the
public what their money is
being spent on.
I cannot agree with this,
but supposing this argument
was accepted.
Supposing we agree Open
House was to let the public
see how a university runs.
Presumably then we are
out to show how the university is normally run.
•    •    •
And Open House will not
show that.
The visitor will see no
lectures going on. Indeed
lectures will be cancelled for
the duration.
Various campus buildings
will be festooned with multicolored displays. Many students will be too busy answering questions about these
displays to attend classes even
if they were going on.
A visitor might get the impression we come here only
to participate in extra-curricular activities if he is to
judge by the club displays;
It is probable a visitor will
leave the university with no
better an idea of how the
thing actually runs that he
had before he came.
An Open House is a great
idea, but, in its present form,
it is just about useless.

LAU N DRONE RTZ

Writing a column at the
Laundromat has its disadvantages. I mean, it's just too
interesting watching the
people to concentrate.
For instance, you see that
little kid over there? Yeah,
the one in blue jeans, with
the freckles. Watch him, he's
going to put about half that
big box of soap in the
machine.
See? I told you. Now in a
few minutes there'll be soap
all over the floor. He does it
every time. Well, I used to
think he was just stupid; but
they tell me his uncle owns
the coin laundry across the
street. Probably gets kickbacks.
• •    •
Oh, my clothes are ready
to come out of the washer.
Want to help me unload
them? Careful you don't step
in those suds. Boy, he really
outdid himself tonight.
Yes, just put the clothes in
that thing that looks like a
bassinette; then we can wheel
them over to the dryer.
What a line up! Oh good!
There's one that's stopped.
Oh great, a hesitating Hannah. Watch this. She's going
to stand there for a while,
feel everything in the dryer,
and try to make up her mind
whether her washing is dry
or not.
• •    •
Guess she decided to be on
the safe side. Now, if she can
just find a dime . . . bobby-
pins, lipstick, cigarets, comb,
ah, at last.
No, it's no use trying for
that other one. Yes, I know
it's empty, but look — you
see that intellectual looking
chap starting towards it?
Well, keep your eye on that
sweet little old lady over
there.
Amazing, isn't it? The way
she can ,get her buggy over
there so fast. Cut him off
right to the door. Sure is spry
for her age.
Poor guy looks disgusted.
Serves him right though,
you'd think he'd learn. He's
never beaten her yet; but I
guess some people just don't
know when to give up.
• •    •
Here comes hesitating Hannah back again. She's smiling,
her things must be dry. This
is funny, the way she folds
everything just so before
she'll put it away. Only 57
diapers and 12 dish towels
this time. We're lucky.
Good, now we've just got to
load this stuff in the dryer
and . . . er, do you have a

Arena, physics
to open Friday
Two new UBC buildings will be officially opened Friday.
$1,398,503 addition to the
physics building will be opened at 2 p.m. by Dr. Malcolm
H. Hebb, a UBC graduate who
will receive an honorary doctor of science degree at UBC's
fall congregation, Nov. 1.
The ceremony will take
place in the building's new 450-
seat amphitheatre.
NEW NAME
The new physics addition
will be named for Dr. Hebb's
father, Thomas Carlyle Hebb,
first head of the physics
department and a UBC faculty
from 1916 until his death in
1938.
At the same ceremony the
existing physics building will
be named for the late Albert
Edward Hennings, who was a
physics professor at UBC for
29 years.
Dr. Hennings joined the
UBC faculty in 1919 and retired in 1948. He died in 1958
at the age of 78.
Dr. Hennings devoted the
last years of his career at UBC
to designing the present building, which was opened in 1947.

classroom blitz Wednesday.
The new look at UN
saves shoe leather'
In 1960 Premier Khrushchev was banging his shoe on
the desk in the United Nations.
And the president of the Assembly broke the head off
his gavel when he hit the podium after a bitter attack on
him by a communist delegate.
Things are different today,
former External Affairs Minister Howard Green told 150
UBC students Wednesday.
"There is far more co-operation this year than there has
been for a good number of
years," said Green, who was
external affairs minister during those troubled years.
"The new attitude is partly
a result of the nuclear test ban
treaty," he said, "although the
treaty itself may have been
a result of the new attitude."
Green said the United Nations is the most potent force
for peace in the world. "I hope
each one of you will make this
question of the U.N. a personal
one."
"It is essential in the present day world, " he told the
students. His speech marks
United Nations week.
He said Canada should take
advantage of her biculturalism
to develop closer relations
with the newly independent
french-speaking countries in
Asia and Africa.
Green told the students to
watch out for the podium at
the UN if they are ever Canadian delegates.
"The first time I spoke
there, I was very nervous," he
said.
"As I leaned on the lectern,
it started  to  retract  into  the
floor with my notes and papers
on it."
"I had put my thumb on a
button lowering the stand, but
I didn't know how to fix it so
I finished the speech with my
notes down below me."
"I mentioned it to Her Majesty when I had an audience
with her later in London, and
she said, 'Don't worry, when
I made my first speech, the
podium went up'."
JMB sets up
academic board
Establishment of an academic goals' committee to define
academic objectives for UBC was announced today by
president John Macdonald.
Purpose of the committee,
Dr. Macdonald said, is to evaluate UBC's present resources,
identify major problems, and
examine proposals for overcoming these problems in future years.
Dr. Macdonald said UBC's
future role in higher education
in B.C. would be examined,
and consideration given to
changes in structure and curriculum necessitated by past
experience and new conditions.
A broad statement of university goals to act as a guide
for further study will be completed early in 1964, the president added.
Committee members are Dr.
Macdonald, acting Dean of Arts
S. N. F. Chant, Prof. Cyril Bel-
shaw, Prof. John D. Chapman,
Prof. D. Harold Copp, Prof.
K. C. Mann, Dr. John M. Norris, and prof. Robert F. Scagel.

Dr. Viktor said:

He doesn't know what he

He doesn't know what he

So he ends up doing what

fun-less school
RIVERSIDE,   Calif.   (CUP) — A   University   is   dying
because students don't have enough fun there.
While neighboring universities are surfeited with students, the Riverside campus of
the University of California is
attracting only a few new students each year.
Because, say students, there
aren't enough coffee houses,
movie theatres, cabarets and
bars.
All the action, they complain, is in the town and the
town is too far away. Buses
make only one trip an hour
into town.
Riverside is a desert campus
hemmed in by the San Berna-
dino  mountains.
Student president Clark
Kerr told students recently:
"We're aware you've led an impoverished   life  here."
Administration officials say
businesses like coffee houses
and movies can't afford to depend solely on students.
Enrolment at Riverside is
2,637.
A goal of 10,000 students by
1970 has been all but abandoned.
Many students resent the
fact that UCLA and Berkeley
are sending Riverside students
they can't accept themselves.
The university chancellor is
trying to raise money for a
temporary student union building.
Students call it the TUB.
Wilson fund man
speaks Monday
The national representative
of the Woodrow Wilson
foundation will address students nominated for Wood-
row Wilson Fellowships

Henry Ross will see students individually who made
arrangements through Dr.
K. D. Naegele, the campus
representative of the foundation:

Rye ignores
boozy frats
TORONTO (CUP) — Ryerson student council has refused to crack down on fraternities selling liquor illegally.
They defeated a motion
that would force council to
warn fraternities that handling
liquor could leave them open
to charges under the Taylor
Report — Ryerson's internal
Criminal Code.
One council member said
that a recent crackdown by
Toronto police on frats could
result in bad publicity and public outcry.
Two frats in Toronto have
been 'raided' and several members charged with keeping and
selling liquor illegally. Other
frats have closed their doors to
unknown visitors for fear of
plainclothes officers entering
as out of town 'guests.'
