CUS PRESIDENT Dave Jenkins was lonely figure above
crowd of 1,500 on Library
lawn Monday. He was put
there by Engineers. Jenkins
said he was surprised to be
welcomed so enthusiastically.
The R-Squad foiled that
blankety-blank radar trap Friday with blinks.
And the RCMP drew a
The battery of R-Squad
members—your friendly student anti- radar brigade—
flashed headlights at oncoming traffic from the sanctity
of St. Anselm's Church.
R Squad members estimated more than 1,000 cars went
by the radar trap on University Boulevard during the
evening rush hour.
A spokesman said he did
not think any got caught.
Blinking lights, as everybody knows, are the universal
signal for radar traps.
When the RCMP put the
trap up Friday, R Squad
members found it in a flash.
The R Squad members said
they are told of the radar
traps by students who have
been caught in them, and they
take steps to prevent other
students being caught in the
same trap.
"We usually put up signs
and blink our lights to warn
oncoming traffic," the spokesman said.
"We don't mind getting a
ticket for speeding if the cop
actually clocks us," he said.
"But radar isn't playing the
game fairly.
"A $25 fine makes a big
hole in any student's budget
—and we object to the police
taking advantage of students
in  this way."
Sgt. Dan Thompson, head of
the UBC RCMP detachment
said several people were
charged with speeding on Friday, but did not specify
"We have radar in more
than one place during a day,"
he said.
"It's impossible for me to
say   exactly   where   speeders
were caught without looking
at the individual tickets."
He said he didn't know how
many people per day are
caught in the traps.
"It varies according to the
time of day, area and location
of the trap," he said.
Members of the R Squad
said they thought the police
catch around a hundred speeders a day when the trap is
operating and the R Squad is
not on the scene.
The spokesman said he
hoped other students would
see the light and become R

Grads ask
new vote
A group of students has organized a petition calling for
a new vote on the grad class
The petition states that less
than five per cent of this
year's grad class of 2,200 voted
for the $8,000 student union
building fountain which was
chosen as the gift.
At a grad class meeting two
weeks ago, 116 of the 182 present supported the fountain
over a cash donation to the
library for bettering the periodical collection.
Protest organizer Sydney de
Bruyn, Arts IV, said alternative gifts were not adequately
discussed at the meeting.
"The presence of (SUB planner) Dean Feltham and the
fountain's would-be designer,
Prof. Lionel Thomas, lent unfair prestige to the fountain
Miss de Bruyn said the meeting could hardly reject the
fountain proposed with Thomas
right there.
Petition forms are located

'hits roof
over critics
A president and a president-elect clashed over federal
aid to eductaion, the existence of the Canadian Union of
Students and biculturalism from the library roof Monday.
Jenkins, Canadian
Union of Students president,
and Roger McAfee, AMS president-elect, were put on the
roof by engineers at noon Monday.
They spoke to more than
1,500 students who gathered below.
They held an impromptu debate 60 feet up, after Jenkins
had finished his speech.
Jenkins said he wasn't too
impressed with the Liberal government's student loan scheme.
"Loans are better than nothing, but grants are the answer," he said.
But Jenkins refused to criticize Quebec students for blocking federal government aid to
higher education.
"You think it's fair that one
province can stop the students
of the other nine receiving
aid?" yelled McAfee.
Jenkins said a change in the
BNA Act was needed first.
Ladder to the top
Jenkins scales heights
The Canadian Union of
Students president rose to
new heights Monday.
Dave Jenkins came to UBC
to sell the students on the national organization.
But he ended up on top of
the library.
Jenkins was originally scheduled to speak in Brock
Lounge at noon Monday.
But only 30 students
turned up, so the meeting was
moved to the front of the library.
Jenkins mounted the soapbox and started talking about
the benefits of CUS.
But he got interrupted by
the   engineers,   who   grabbed
the CUS president and escorted him. into the library.
Jenkins was forced up to
the roof and then lowered
onto the balcony.
(Last year, AMS second
vice-president, Byron Hender,
was left on the same balcony
by the engineers).
Roger McAfee, AMS president-elect, also was put on
another balcony at the other
side of the library.
When the two presidents'
were left there, the engineers
Then the debate started.

Jenkins extended his thanks
to the UBC students for their
"I have never been welcomed so enthusiastically before," he said.
He continued his speech
from the balcony, and asked
for questions from the audience 60 feet below.
One came: ''How are you
going to get down?"
"Jump," was the reply
from the students .
McAfee waved an old
broom that had been left on
the balcony.
"Get on your broom and
fly down, Rog," yelled one
The pair eventually got
down with ladders from
Buildings  and Grounds.
"This is what students should
be working for now," he said.
McAfee said he would go to
CUS Congres next fall and demand that the French allow the
English-speaking students to receive the loans and scholarships.
"We want the money now,
not next fall," yelled an irate
Jenkins talked about the
CUS program.
He mentioned the life insurance plan, the travel plan and
the deduction of fees from income tax.
He is on a cross-Canada tour
to explain CUS policies.
"If we don't get more than
that for our $6,000, I think we
should reconsider staying in the
organization," said McAfee.
Earlier McAfee had challenged Jenkins to a debate, which
was refused by the local CUS
On the subject of bi-culturalism, several other students got
into the debate.
"You students don't take this
problem seriously," harangued
Jim Ward.
Ward took over the soapbox
after Dietrich Luth, the perennial campus soapbox orator,
had left for a class.
'We believe in taking problems to the top," said Jenkins.
"That's right — there's no
limit to the heights that CUS
will go," replied Luth.
Luth referred to Quebec as

Liberals say
in school
Canadian University Liberal
Federation Sunday called for
the recognition of the French-
language and for the establishment of French-1 a n g u a g e
schools anywhere in Canada
where there is a concentration
of 10 per cent or more French
Another resolution said that
bilingualism should be a
reality at the higher levels of
civil service and that "all civil
employees be bilingual in all
areas where there is concentration of the second language."
The 300 university Liberals
meeting here also asked that
provinces be given the right
to withdraw from any joint
federal-provincial program and
that adequate compensation
be granted in the form of returned fiscal resources.
The conference requested
that the present government
commence formal negotiations
for entry into the Organization
of American States.
Prime Minister Pearson, in a
brief address to the delegates
Friday, said Canada should
have closer ties with Latin
Amterica but the decision to
join should await OAS clarification of its rules.
He suggested, however, that
the government may have an
announcement before   long.
CULF asked for an increase
of exemption of the first
$3,000 of earned income for
students who now qualify for
the tuition fee deduction for
income tax purposes.
This is a carbon copy of the
request submitted to the Royal
Commission on Taxation by
the Canadian Union of Students earlier this year.
No resolutions, however,
were offered concerning the
promised 10,000 scholarships
of $1,000 each.
(The Prime Minister told
delegates on Friday that the
scholarships was a party commitment but the party had
many commitments and some
would have to be met during
the normal four-year term of
Parliament and not all in the
first session.)

Many student rooms are death

He said students from Western Washington state college
here are being jammed into
apartments with inadequate
fire exits and no fire extinguishers.
The new drop-off zone at the end of C lot is
blinding success, Sir Ouvry Roberts said Monday.
Sir Ouvry, the traffic Czar,
said the passenger zone had
only been used by about a
dozen students Monday morning.
"It's probably due to the
lovely weather," he said. "Nobody minds a stroll on a
sunny day."
"But we hope when it gets
wetter, students will make use
of this service.
"They would be foolish not
to take advantage of a passenger zone that will allow them,
a much shorter walk to the
centre of campus.
"But," he said, "it is imperative that students keep the approach roadways clear of
parked cars."
"If they do park their cars
in the way, we'll have to tow
them away."
He said he expected the zone
to be used most in the morning, when people have 8:30
lectures, and arrive on campus at 8:27.
"Probably they'll all walk
up to their cars together when
they go home."
"A-lot students won't be
able to use the zone until after
9:30, when the one-way restrictions are off Agronomy
Road," he said.

"It's naive of the library to
'think that the student day
ends at 9:30 p.m., when they

Munro said the library
could discontinue all basic
services, and leave just two
people on duty—one to check
the stacks and one at the
stack exit.
He said he would even be
satisfied if they left one of the
study areas open 'til 12.

stay open until 12 — so
there's   precedent.

The engineering undergraduate society report is the only
indication of employer discrimination against non - white
A Ubyssey survey Monday
revealed that no other faculty
has definite evidence of racial
discrimination by employers.
But none have conducted surveys to find out if discrimination exists.
Assistant Dean of Commerce
Colin C. Gourlay, Pharmacy
Dean A. W. Matthews and Dean
of Science V. J. Okulich all
said they have had no complaints of racial discrimination
from their students.
Dean Matthews said Oriental
pharmacy students have not
been victims of racial discrimination. He did not know what
employer reaction could be to
Negro applicants.
"We have never had an application from a Negro student," the Dean said.
Dean of Arts S. N. F. Chant
said he has received no reports
of employer discrimination.
UBC personnel office director, John F. McLean said it was
a difficult matter to find out
if employers discriminate
against non-whites.
"There is some discrimination," he said, 'particularly
where company towns exist.
"But this situation is changing. It is not as bad now as it
was a few years ago," said McLean.
None of the other undergraduate societies have reports
similar to the Engineers' 1962
report on employer discrimination.

chosen Liberals  head
OTTAWA (CUP)—A UBC correspondence student was
elected president of the Canadian University Liberal Federation Sunday over the first female candidate to seek
that office.
Robert D. Peyton won the position over Miss Sharon
Sholzberg, 21-year-old McGill University law student and
Liberal club president.
Peyton, who takes office immediately, is presently
serving as executive assistant to Northern Affairs Minister
Arthur Laing.
In his nomination speech, Peyton said that the Liberals
are losing far too many members to the NDP Party because
of the impression that it is the only party of reform. He
said that this is erroneous, and he would attempt to
strengthen the Liberal party on university campuses.

Department of Social Welfare, the head of UBC's School of
Social Work said Monday.
Professor William Dixon was
commenting on a statement by
former social worker Wallace
du Temple which appeared in
The Ubyssey Friday.
Du Temple urged graduates
not to work for the government
because of conditions in the Department of Social Welfare.
"I have great respect for Mr.
du Temple's documentation of
social conditions in the northern communities of B.C., but I
cannot go along with his advice
to social work students," said
"The department cannot be
abandoned by all professional
people. This would simply
lead to greater deterioration
than now exists."
He said some students have
enough spirit of reform to withstand great pressure and undergo some personal sacrifice.
"The road to social change
is never an easy one, and social
work students must face its
hazards like any one else," he
Dixon said the School of Social Work has a record number
of applications for this time of
the year.
He said he expects the largest class in history to enter the
school next year.

Peddling profs
We see where the university's spokesman in the
legislature, the department of medicine's Dr. Patrick
McGeer, has told the MLAs to shape up.
He might have added that they ship out, too, but,
then, that's another problem, which the electorate of this
province seems reluctant to solve.
Dr. McGeer, in a debate on health and welfare, said
that heart disease causes far more deaths than cigarets
and cancer. He then went on to add that our middle-
aged representatives were in all likelihood too paunchy,
and that unless they all wanted to have heart failure
at the premier's next announcement, they'd better get out
and do some peddling on a bicycle, instead of on the
floor of the House.
At a time when UBC is already understaffed, this
is a dangerous situation. We cannot afford to lose any
more top profs—to California Tech or coronary thrombosis.
We suggest authorities rectify the situation immediately by changing all faculty parking lots to student areas,
and placing the professors in C-lot. Let 'em walk to their
8:30 classes.
They never get there on time, anyway. This way
they'd at least be healthy.
The 10 -count
As interested spectators of the world of sport, we
take great interest in tonight's championship boxing
match between Mr. Clay and Mr. Liston.
At the risk of being held in contempt of Clay, let
us say to begin with that we don't think Cassius stands a
poet's hope in the engineering building of beating that
big, ugly bear.
We are afraid that not only is Clay's fate sealed, but
soon his lip will be, too. And if that happens, boxing
and sport will be the poorer.
It seems to us that amid all this professionalism that's
taking over sports, we are missing a lot of the color, the
humor, that we once used to find. Too many people are
taking little games too seriously..
Athletes, we think, should be more like Cassius Clay
and the Beatles, who are also making money at a playgame.   They should laugh at themselves a bit.
They should be less like the moguls of our august
National Hockey League and Canadian Foootball
League, the bastions of professional sport in this country
—and the people who clamp down on performers who
stray from the party line (performers such as Red
Storey, for instance).
Athletes, we suspect, can be champions, make lots of
money, and still be entertainers, which' is what they are
in reality.
Mr. Clay fulfills the latter two requirements; we will
keep our fingers crossed on that former point.
Pinch the preem
We see where Premier Bennett has vetoed a suggestion by his highways' minister to increase the speed
limits on provincial highways.
We cannot conceive how the good Premier can be
against speed, for in past years he has shown quite clearly
that it is his policy to pull fast ones on the people of B.C.
It is indeed a pity the taxpayers cannot invent some
sort of political radar trap that would catch the government at its tricks.

I am certain that when this

it inevitably will, it will induce the French Canadans to
moderate their demands.

Three flags
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In reference to a letter by
Les Groberman discussing two
flags for Canada which appeared in Thursday's Ubyssey.
Who the hell does this Groberman guy think he is? He
must come from a long line of
idiots to suggest that Canada
needs two flags: one for the
French and one for the English.
Does this further Canadian
nationalism and integrity ?
No ! Canada needs three
flags: one for the minorities,
whose rights will be neglected
by this idiot Groberman's two-
flag plan.

Sheer bigotry
From your Thursday editorial, "Lost Marbles," it
would   seem   that   you're   in
competition with our illustrious Premier, Mr. Bennett, for
the Orangeman's Award, '64.
Congratulations! I think you'll
win. Even Bennett's remarks
can't match your editorial for
sheer ignorance, bigotry and
I guess, Mr. Editor, you're
about as "sick of our whining
and foot - stamping French-
Canadian playmates" as the
southern U.S. dixicrats are
sick of "their" whining and
foot-stamping  Negroes.
It's about time that people
in B.C. began to regard themselves a little more seriously
as Canadians, and faced up to
the real problems of our country. First, it's time we realized that Canada is a bi-
national state.
What French Canadians are
going to take (they don't
"want" anything from English
Canada), is their sovereignty
as a state, either within a confederal union with English
Canada or without.
If they remain in confederation, it must be on a different
basis than at present. Quebec
can no longer remain just one
out of a few provinces. Quebec must be recognized as a
nation and have the sovereignty of a nation-state up to, and
including, the right to secede.
Yet the strength of Canada
as a whole lies in the unity of
the two nations. The two nations given equal status of
one to one could cement that
unity in a new all-Canadian
In the meantime, Mr. Editor,
instead of shooting off your
mouth, you just might find a
little time to study the problem. Instead of stirring up
national prejudices and intolerance, you might call for an
expression of unity between

McDonald was master of the
backboards, snagging 13 rebounds.
