Federal loan plan
but scholarships
OTTAWA (UNS) — A program of interest-free loans to
university student has been announced by the government in
the Throne Speech.
Under the plan, interest-free
loans will be available throughout a student's years at school
and for  one year  after.
It is understood loans would
be limited to $1,000 a year to a
total of $4,000, starting next
No indication of the length of
time permitted for repayment
was announced.
The plan does not eliminate
the Liberal government's 1963
campaign promise of 10,000
scholarships at $1,000 each, but
a government spokesman said
it would probably retard the
scholarship plan's implementation.
University president John
Macdonald welcomed the announcement, but had no comment on what would happen to
the 10,000 Liberal scholarships.
'This is highly desirable. It
will be welcomed by all uni
"It will provide insurance
against able students being
prevented from going to university for lack of funds."
AMS president Malcolm
Scott said the loan program
would provide much needed
student aid.
But, he said, the scholarship
program  should  continue  and
the loans should not be considered as a substitute.

Chancellor Dr. Gordon
Shrum said Wednesday the nev
school will operate on a trimes
ter system composed of three
16-week semesters.
Students will be permitted to
attend the school for all three
terms, but only two will con-
stittue one year's credit.
A student attending all sessions could complete a degree
program in three years under
the plan.
Dr. Shrum, in announcing
the scheme, said advantages of
the system are full-time use of
facilities, quicker education for
those who wish it, and a financial saving to students and community.
Dr. Shrum said the three-year
term will ensure that the library, laboratories, and lecture
rooms are used to maximum
"For the individual student,
too, all-year operating can be
cheaper. Many students earn
very little in the summer. They
would be better off borrowing
money, going through university more rapidly, then moving

far too long," he said.
Dr. Patrick McTaggart-
Cowan, Simon Fraser's president, said the system allows for
greater flexibility.
"Courses can be planned on
the basis of the 16-week term,
and students can enter at the
beginning of any term, instead
of just once a year."

Her work starts at 2 a.m.,

She finishes at 8 o'clock,
in time for the warm buns to

Mrs. Hasz has been working
at the university for the last
15 years, but started making
her buns only six years ago.
So far she has resisted any
attempts to mechanize the
A dough-rolling machine is

It includes 100 pounds of
flour, one-third of a sack of
sugar, six gallons of milk, ten
dozen eggs, three pounds of
yeast, three pounds of cinnamon and eight to ten pounds
of margarine—per day.
However, the actual baking
process varies daily.
"An expert like Mrs. Hasz
goes by the feel of the dough,"
said Mrs. Mary Stovell, cafeteria dietitian.
"That's why no-one else can
duplicate the buns."

Mrs. Hasz is reaching retirement age, and she speaks
of leaving in the not too distant future.

Council censures paper;
editorial staff resigns
man editorial staff of Le Quar-
tier Latin has quit because it
was censured by the University of Montreal student council.
Staff members of the paper,
the undergraduate newspaper
at the university, handed in
their resignations after the
council passed a "vote de
blame" against Pierre Emanuel Garon for an editorial
which appeared  Jan.  30   .
The editorial, Mgr. Lussier
et le rapport Bouchard, was a
bitter denouncement of an
alleged text-book monopoly
and Mgr. Lussier's connection
with it.
The paper has been consistently critical of Mgr. Lussier,
rector of University of Montreal.
During a cafeteria strike last
fall, the paper, in a front-page
editorial, demanded his resignation.
A provincial gove r n m e n t
inquiry into the text books was
told Mgr. Lussier received
$10,435 for serving as an adviser to a school magazine.
The editorial in Le Quartier
Latin said:
"There are two alternatives
to choose from: Either the
rector knew that he had been
dishonest in combining the two
duties, or else he did not know.
"If he did not know, he is
a poor fool, totally unaware
of the situation (un pauvre
type totalement depourvu).
"If he knew and nevertheless exercised the two func-
tions simultaneously, he

Sorry, Jack.) we should.
You've been pounding it into us for years.
You finally got through to
us, and only because you had
the foresight and perseverance to continue your crusade
against religion and for sex.
We didn't take you seriously, at first.

Every time you took a
strip off some apparently inoffensive Christian we just
thought you were trying to
titillate the Frosh or get a

Same thing every time you
revealed unto us the truth
about sex.
Those stories about the
Swedes yukking it up in coeducational dorms—hot stuff,
all right, Jack.
But it took us quite a while
to, tumble to the idea you
were trying to tell us something.
Good thing you stuck with

never have realized how
hyprocritical dirty old society
really is.
Yessir, we'd never have

out to make dupes of us all,

go knock up the girlfriend
and spite society.

But we've all come 'round
to the right way of thinking,
thanks to you, Jack. No longer will we allow our elders to
pull the wool of convention

No sir, Jack, any day now
we'll band together and sack
St. Mark's College. Not going
to have any of those mealy-
mouthed Christians making
fools out of us.

sharp rise in the illegitimacy

taking this lying down.
We're enlightened now
Jack. Enlightened all to hell.
We're down on religion and
up on sex — and we owe it
all to you.
But can we prevail upon
your fine, noble crusading
spirit for just one more favor?
Will ya shut up. Jack?

he said. "I know of no plans
for such a discussion."

"education becomes something
of a pipeline. The student may
be denied the most important
activity of university life —
the reaching and testing of his
own generalizations based on
his own discovery.
"Thus the student does not
become a scholar but a perpetual pupil," he said.
The effect of Hardwick's lecture was felt by students even
before it ended. The crowd of
150 students slowly dwindled
to about 75 by the time the professor had finished.
Professor Hardwick cited
the cases of two small colleges
in the United States where the
lecture system has been supplemented with tutorials, seminars, and a good library.
He said that the lecture originated in early universities
when they were the only
method whereby the student
could   obtain   information.
"With the onset of printing
and the wide dissemination of
books, the lecture took a less
important position in university life. Students began to
read and digest."
"Today, the dominant place
of the lecture has been restored.

the construction of university

News item: Blue denim ousts blue blazers in Brock
The frosh fuss
Al Birnie, editor of the Frosh newspaper, was fired
for writing the following editorial. The Frosh newspaper
was cancelled following Birnie's removal and subsequent
squabble with Frosh president, Jason Leask.
There is a strong case for the elimination of the
Frosh Undergraduate Society.
First of all, what is FUS? It is 3,000 students, from
all walks of life and all interest categories, with the Frosh
Council as its elected, guiding body.
What is the purpose of FUS? It is to help orient
Frosih to university life, and to give them experience in
the workings of the university, in hopes that they may
prove useful and productive in the future.
Is FUS succeeding in its purpose?    I say it is not.
The Frosh Council, supposedly the guide of FUS,
is composed ctf Frosh who know as little about university life as any other Frosh. A presidential candidate in
the recent AMS election described the concept of the
FUS as "the blind leading the blind."  I agree with him.
FUS is supposed to be acquainting Frosh with university life—but the only way one learns anything about
it is by individual experience. With such a variety of
interests in the Frosh class, much individual knowledge
is gained, but very little of it passes on to others through
the FUS.
The individual gains, but not the group.
FUS should be scrapped, with two things to replace
it. First—a more efficient, bigger, and more comprehensive Frosh Orientation program. Pressure must be put
on the AMS to show them that effort in this area would
be extremely valuable—students become profoundly
shaped by their first year. A poor first year is a major
cause of apathy.
Secondly—more efficient and more organized absorption into specific undergraduate societies, which cater,
due to their nature, to more of the interests of the individual student than FUS does. This would be a big job
for tihese faculties, but they would be able to supply the
leadership so badly needed.
These methods may not be perfect, but they would
be much better than the present system.
The change would be a difficult task, but the trouble
forcing it through would be more than worth it. The
onus is on this year's Frosh, and this year's intelligent,
energetic upperclassmen.
Lost marbles
Well, they've asked for our comments on the impending break-up of the great Canadian marble game.
Since we don't have time to write a brief to our
self-appointed saviors of confederation (the AMS and
CUS) we thought we'd record our opinions here.
Frankly, we're getting a little sick of our whining
and foot-stamping French-Canadian playmates.
It seems that if we don't play by their rules they're
going to pick up their steelies and cobs and go home.
Big deal!
We don't suggest we can have a good game by ourselves, but we don't think they can either.
And, it seems to us, perhaps a little more understanding would result if for once English Canada, faced
with the wild threats of ifuzzy-thinking French radicals,
responded once with a similar, resounding: Big Deal!
Our first suggestion to the biculturalism commission
would be short and simple!   Iteck it up.
When you do, tell Prime Minister Pearson that his
first step in handling the French situation should be to
stop twitching like that every time he hears a French-
Canadian accent.
The same applies to CUS. It's about time somebody
told the French to forget their demands for equal representation to the English.
They know as well as we do, their demand is unrealistic. But they'll take as much as they can get as
long as no one stops them.
We'll start the process. We'll say again—it's about
time someone put the frogs in their place.

How to cut the library buzz:
join Tommy Wu's press gang
Two students were taken to
Wesbrook hospital with stab
wounds Tuesday after another
brawl in the College Library.
Does that sound farfetched? Read on.
Monday noon I took part in
a gang action which, if it's indicative of a trend, will lead
eventually to full-scale riots
in the College Library.
• •    •
More than seven frosh were
gathered in a noisy group
playing bridge, a rule-breaking but not-uncommon occurrence in the first and second-
year study area.
Driven past the point of endurance, a student finally
asked the group to quiet
No response.
After another 10 minutes
of boisterous interference, the
student who had protested before got up to complain again.
This time 12 other students
sitting around got up and went
with him.

Only the superiority in
numbers of the peacemakers
prevented an outbreak of violence, for when the card-
players had broken up their
game, one of the cardmen
muttered with great high
school bravado:
"Someone is looking for a
punch in the face."
Mrs. E. F. Hoge, head librarian for college, said that
students are responsible for
their own discipline.
"The commissionaire is
only there to prevent untoward accidents," she said.
But students are showing
absolutely no sense of responsibility, she added.
She explained that the incident of the card players had
been reported to her, but that
she had sent for the commissionaire rather than intervene
"I refuse to take the responsibility," she said.

I suggest there are two alternatives left to regain quiet
in   the   library
•    *    •
First, the library, could set
aside certain areas of the
study-halls for study, as the
Special Collections Room is
now generally considered.
The other alternative is one
that could lead to a few lead
sentences like the one that
kicked off this column.
What I propose is a Wu
Anti-Noise League.
If we get enough members,
it should be possible to have
just one member on duty for
each hour of the day.
He could patrol up and
down in college with a bell
in his hand. If a noisy group
or individual refused to be
quiet at his suggestion he
could ring the bell.
• • •
After that it would be the
duty of all W.A.N, leaguers to
assist the member on duty in
evicting the person or persons
responsible for the disturbance.
After a few pitched battles,
people would come to the
study-halls to study, and the
Wu Anti-Noise League could
cheerfully  disband.
I know this isn't what Mrs.
Hoge had in mind for library
discipline, but I'm sure it
would work.

After a full year of brain-
scratching, finagling, and general passing the buck by the
PTB (powers that be) we
have finally seen the establishment at UBC of an Academic Activities Committee,

which is held annually at
Parksville has been the first
significant attempt to provide an informal atmosphere
for open discussion on this
Evening academic sessions
attracted a large number of
faculty and students. A number of weekend Symposia
were organized, including the

America, the Fall Symposium
on "Individual in Mass Society" and the Spring Symposium on "Marriage and Morality." More than 500 students

symposium and a symposium
on bi-culturalism. This committee will also coordinate

Squash Frosh
Editor. The Ubyssey:
Three cheers for Al Birnie.
I fully agree with him that
the Frosh Undergraduate
Society should be abolished.
As the FUS does not feel
that such a suggestion should
come from the editor of that
society's newsletter, I should
like to put forth such a proposal myself.
The vast majority of first-
year students feel no allegiance Whatsoever to the Frosh
Council. First year science or
even first year arts sounds
better than mleekly declaring, "I am a frosh."
Not supported, the Frosh
Council is a waste of student
money; money that could be
better spent if given to the
other undergraduate societies.
The Frosh Undergraduate
Society as it exists is a useless, expensive, and for the
most part amorphous organization that should be abolished as soon as possible.

Gift of gob (?)
Editor. The Ubyssey:
In reply to the comment
in the Feb. 6 Ubyssey by a
member of the so-called communications media on campus, commonly known as
"Radsoc", we, the members
of a famous Common Room to
which you made reference,
wish to speak!
It is not the music that we
object to, but the interjected
comments of the disc-jockeys
often makes us violently ill.
Assuming, of course, that
you wish to please your listening public, we would like to
suggest that comments be
minimized. This will improve
the disposition of the listeners and will probably save
certain individuals from being forced into learning to
swim before spring.
If this sounds like a threat
— IT IS!
Guardians of Aggie status-
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Just as I begin to believe
in hum|an sense and tolerance,
I find myself exposed to the
nauseating tripe written by
Nancy Colbert, Mickey Mouse
IV, in last week's Ubyssey.
I had previously assumed
that a democratic society
would allow people to believe
what they wanted and to express themselves.
Miss Colbert has just insulted the electorate which endorsed the Communist candidates, and, although not personally a Communist, I would
invite her to go to hell.

a scholar contributes more to
society than an athlete does.
Of course he does. However, instead of pretentiously defending 'good old UBC,
with its revered sense of values, Fletcher should look at
some facts: 1) UBC has a high-
pressure, American - bred,
winner-type basketball coach.
2) UBC sends its basketball
team 18,000 miles a year (a
North American record), at
obviously great expense. 3)

A re-vote
Editor, The Ubyssey:
At a meeting last Thursday
(at which only one-tenth of

the grad class decided that
their $5,000 gift to UBC

They rejected the alternative
of buying books and periodicals for the library. This de-
cision on the part of the so-
called educated people is
appallingly stupid and selfish.
At a time when students
and faculty alike, are crying
for more classrooms, better
professors, and more books,
to present UBC with a fountain is an insult.

this question, so that the

To Joe  College
for  his  building
What does $5 fee increase really mean?
The issue is not yes or no for SUB.
SUB will be built despite the outcome of the
referendum next week.
The issue is whether the students want to
take a voluntary increase of $5 in their AMS
activity fees for the next 15 years.
Why is it imperative that students of this
session vote for the increase?
First, they must save $1,500,000 in interest
which would accrue over the 30 year financing
•    •   •
Next, they must think of the burden which
they would be placing on the student in the future. Future students would not be able to start
on the second stage the capital cost of which
could be saved in the interest paid over 30
Third, the Board of Governors will not support the SUB without a 15 year financing program. Their decision is based upon the absurdity
of the additional $1.5 million interest and the
burdening of students 15 years longer than necessary.
•    •    •
If the referendum fails the AMS will have
to re-negotiate with the Board on the longer financing scheme which may take six months.
Regardless of the outcome of the fee referen-
rum, SUB will go ahead with the present facility list.
The facilities are not in question on this
referendum. The building has already been accepted. This referendum is asking for an increase
in AMS activities fees from $24-$29 for fifteen
years. That is the only issue.
SUB Planning Committee members and Student Councillors will be available in Buchanan
204 every day next week at noon hour to answer questions on the fee referendum. They will
explain any questions which students have about
the increase in fees.
It must be pointed out that the building
which students have voted to build is comparable in cost and size to Buchanan or the first
unit in Simon Fraser Academy as pictured in
the local dailes last weekend.
Questions & Answers
BU 204
Noon  hour      Feb.  24-28
Students who would vote "NO" to the referendum and force the building into a 30 year
program will likely help make the last few payments for the building through their own child's
student activity fees at UBC in 1994.
The responsibility should be shouldered for
15 years so that the second and third stages of
the building can be added by 1994.
Raising the fees for student projects is not
without precedent. The Gymnasium was built
in 1951 through an increase of $5 as was the
Brock Extension and Residence in 1958. The
people who took the increase in fees did it for
our use, not theirs.
•    •    •
What does the five dollars mean to Joe Student? It means 50 cups of coffee. It means two
cases of beer. It means a tank of gas.
The UBC student activity fee is $24. Comparable universities such as McGill and University
of Toronto are much higher.
McGill University pays $40, Queens University pays $45, Victoria College $29, U of A (Edmonton) $34, U of A' (Calgary) $32.50, U of
Sask. $32.50, U of Manitoba $24.50.
Loyola College pays $30 while Dalhousie
University pays $26. Kings College and Memorial University pay only $22 but Mount Allison pays $30.
•    •    •
It is easy to see that McGill pays a much
higher activity fee than UBC and they are not
building a new Union. University of Toronto
had their (now inadequate) Union donated to
them by Raymond Massey. Their fees are still
higher than ours.
UBC is not the lowest on the fee scale but
they are far from the highest. UBC students can
afford to take an increase if they are like the
average Canadian student.
