TRAMPING AWAY FROM SUNSET BEACH, 3,500 MARCHERS SNAKED FOUR ABREAST TO VANCOUVER

UBC deserted
<?
Labs, classes si
but students no
It was like Saturday afternoon on campus after Thursday's general meeting. <$>
Only the days were different to
protect schedules and the sanity
of the world's calendar makers.
Saturday there were no labs,
lectures, or students.
Thursday there were labs, lectures, but hardly any students.

VICTORIA—Six hundred
Victoria College students
staged a silent parade before
the. Legislative Buildings here
Thursday afternoon.
Tony Else, editor of The
Martlett, said the only incident occurred when a com-
missionaire approached a student leader and told him his,
"group was violating a loitering act.
The students ignored him.
professors lectured to nearly
empty rooms. The rest of the
classrooms and all lecture halls
were deserted.
Only paid office staff occupied
the AMS offices in South Brock.
And the Greek letter section
of the caf in the same general
area was as inactive as the library.
Meanwhile a few hands of
bridge were being played out
in the intellectual's cafeteria in
the basement of the auditorium.
A few students and faculty
sat huddled over coffees but the
roar of philosophers, actors and
poets expounding their theories
was gone.
On the walks, paths and road- .
ways of UBC there was no one. j
Student parking lots were almost bare, although some faculty lots were fully occupied.
Meanwhile, Operation Crisis
was in session on the courthouse
lawn.
Mac really
got backed
at Armory
By MIKE HORSEY
Five thousand jostling students crammed into the Armory Thursday to "Back Mac"
at the AMS general meeting.
Another 2,000 stood outside
in the light rain listening to
the speakers through the public  address system.
Well before the meeting
started students flooded the
Armory carrying banners,
signs, placards and lunch
bags.
Even a band showed up.
Tension mounted as the
band played the Colonel
Bogey March and the building shivered with life.
As Dr. Macdonald picked
his way through the crowd
a few students started to
clap.
Then as more and more
people recognized the «grey-
hair.^resident the sparse applause rose to whistles; cheers*
and finally a standing ova-

Third Trek
the greatest
By  RICHARD   SIMEON
The third trek was the greatest trek.
Thirty-five hundred marchers from UBC stretched four
abreast for almost a mile along Burrard Thursday.
Police      motorcycles      witl.,<$—: —	
Slashing     red:   lights   .brought

Workers left their offices to
shout encouragement to the
students ancr pedestrians
stoped to cheer them on.
The staff of CKWX radio
station came out and shouted
"Back Mac."
This was UBC's third trek
for higher education. And those
who took part said it was the
best.
As the marchers moved on
to the court house grounds, two
small children on the steps,
kept yelling: "They're still
coming,   they're   still   coming."
Ten busloads of students
plus hundreds of pool car?
brought the marchers downtown from the AMS general
meeting held earlier in the
day.
One group of students invented a new song! It went:
"Our Macdonald had a plan.
Here a college, there a college ..."

Trekking makes for strange
bedfellows.
Chair man of Thursday's
march was Dick Woodsworth.
As a former president of
UBC's nuclear disarmers, he's
the very man to tap the great
source of march organisers who
learned their trade as ban-the-
bombers.
And Mike (Nazicred) Sharzer, co-chairman of the march
to the courthouse. His group
was there in spirit—if not in
fact—along with the Calathumpiums.
And Dietrich Luth, UBC's
soapboxer. With instructions
and a megaphone in hand, he's
a parade marshal's dream.
Charlie Boylan, UBC's campus communist was there too.

The applause lasted almost
five minutes before the president started to speak.
When the . president cautioned jihe students against

By the end of the speech
a few students even looked
disappointed. Dr. Macdonald
received a polite but reserved

Student court has acquitted

Student judges called the case
a waste of time and said the
evidence against the two was
trivial.
Acquitted were Peter M.
Brown, Arts III, and Robert P.
Smith, Comm. I.
Brown and Smith, both players in an intramural basketball
game Jan. 20, were charged by
' the discipline committee after
witnesses reported they saw
Brown drinking and said Smith
smelled of alcohol.
The court found the two were
completely -innocent of the

Harold Charters, Comm. I,

TREKKING
(Continued from Page  1)
and all the other things that
serv.s to stir up discontent with
the   established   order.
One thing about trekking—
you see some odd things.
Like the history department
seemingly marching en masse.
And a couple of red-sweatered
engineers marching with them.
Like Liberals and socialists
. marching together with a big
banner that reads Back Mac
for the Future.
The trek brought legions of
office workers, bosses, voters,
crowding to the mile of plate
glass windows along Burrard,
all to watch the students go
by.
The B.C. government flag
:.. fluttered aristocratically from
the top of the B.C. Hydro Building.
And B.C. Hydro employees
who orice worked for a UBC
chancellor, the late Dr. Dal
Grauer, leaned from the windows and yelled:
"You tell 'em, kids."
He said that 1,500 students
of a possible 1,700 at Victoria
College had shown support
for the campaign at a mass
rally there.
"If they can get 50,000
signatures on their petitions
we can get 500,000 signatures," he shouted.
, After the meeting students
left to form UP for a rally
on the court house steps.
Others started off to get
signatures for their petitions.
Still others headed for B.C.'s
hinterlands on charteded buses. ^
•
At 2:3-0'p.m. sharp eleven
buses rolled out of the University in convoy headed for
island and interior points.
The   nefisfest -bus   was   the
one headpd $ax Trail.
A student rose in the bus
and   told   them   that   Russia
had just defeated Czechoslo
vakia thus giving Trail's
Smokeaters a chance to win
the world hockey tourney in
Stockholm.
And those students who
didn't care to "Back Mac"?—
there were a Jew of them
scattered throughout the
campus.
*       ,
The usually crowded library was almost deserted but
for a few stalwart individuals.
The club rooms were
locked, Brock lounge was
closed and the auditorium
was nearly empty.
Less than 200 students
drank  coffee   in Brock Hall.
The few classes that were
held in the afternoon had poor
attendance.
And the Armory in the
late afternoon?      7
No more surging crowds
here. Just paper. Mountains
of paper being pushed back
by two solitary janitors.
Police pleased with
orderly demonstration
(Continued  from Page   1)
The students obeyed.
From the courthouse steps
Dr. John Norris, a history pro
fessor and alumnus, addressed
the   students.
"We are fighting for the future, ours, our children's, the
province's, and the nation's," he
said.
"The Macdonald report musl
be  implemented.
"In 1965 the freshmen class
of B.C.'s universities w i 11
double, from 5,600 to 10,000 in
one year. "We need smaller
classes, more graduate work,
more institutions.
"The whole educational system must grow with a dynamic
iforce the like of which we
hav^t .seen yet. We will tell
tjhe pee_>le the whole story and
then the government will listn.
"What we do or do not do
this week will decide the future
of this province."
Policemen' were happy at
Lhe orderliness of the demonstration. "We expected it to be
orderly and it was orderly,"
said the inspector in charge.
After the short rally, students
dispersed with their petitions
throughout  downtown.
Many of the shoppers were
flabbergasted by the student
denmonstration. A few thought
it  was foolish.
"It's long overdue," said one
bystander.
Another said: "It's fantastic."
"I just hope you get some results,'  said another. "Education
has   been  pushed   around  long
enough."
But there were a few dissenters. One bystander said.
"It's just the same as the
Doukhobors. Always looking
for attention. It's a great cause,
but there are better ways of
going about it."
NICKEL  IN   WORLD   MARKETS...JOBS   FOR   CANADIANS
How Canadian Nickel is helping to preserve Rome's Colosseum
After centuries of exposure to the elements, the enormous Colosseum recently began to show
signs of serious deterioration. Immediate repair had to be made to preserve these famous
ruins. And Canadian nickel helped. Nickel stainless steel bars were skilfully inserted in
the stone to act as invisible but constant reinforcing agents. Why nickel stainless steel?
Because it is strong and corrosion resistant. The growth of nickel markets at home and
abroad helps strengthen Canada's economy and helps provide jobs for Canadians.

JBM tells cheering students
By RICHARD SIMEON
Dr. John Macdonald Thursday called on students to put
responsibility first in their
action   campaign.
He spoke at the AMS general meeting at noon in the
armory. Twice the huge crowd
rose to give him a standing
ovation.
"I am overwhelmed by the
warmth of your receptian and
by the attendance at this meeting,"  he said.
•'I' am grateful for your
confidence in me as expressed
by your slogan  "Back Mac' ".
*
Macdonald made it clear
that he was not officially to
be connected with the student
action.
"I believe in the independence of the student body."
"This is your decision, your
responsibility; it is not spearheaded by the president of the
University.
_"The budget is the responsibility of the Board of Governors. Any unfair emotional
demonstrations will jeopardize
the board's negotiating on a
sound basis with the government."
Macdonald  praised the  pro
vincial government; for its action so far. "The passing of the
legislation for new1 colleges,
and the drafting Of the hew
Universities Act is a remarkable amount of progress," he
said.
*   ■   '   ■ '
"But the crisis has not disappeared just because the
initial steps have been taken."
The president said there
was a great deal of work to
be done by the province in
actually getting the colleges
operational.
To do"'at.'this,' an informed
public is necessary, said Macdonald.
"As the future leaders, and
I see by your actions now
that you are leaders, you must
be informed on the facts and
issues at stake, so that you can
inform your communities of
the need for higher education.

But does Mac back Mac?
Confused students walked out of tihe Armory Thursday
still wondering if Mac was the only person on campus not
backing Mac.
Some said Dr. Macdonald's speech told students to pack
in the campaign without actually saying so. Others said the
president had gone as far as he could politically to back up
student action.
Like everyone else, The Ubyssey has an interpretation ot
what Dr. Macdonald said and it is based not on the words he
spoke, but on those he didn't speak.
Dr. Macdonald, at Thursday's meeting, was free to tell
the students to call off the campaign before it was too late.
If he did not like the idea, he could have put the damper on
treks, petitions and the hard work that goes with them, with
only a few words.
But his speech, despite what a downtown newspaper
report says, did not tell the students he did not support them.
It said simply that he welcomed the student support for
higher education, that if students wanted to demonstrate
they should demonstrate responsibly, and that this action was
not officially sanctioned by the University administration.
What else could he say?
Dr. Macdonald was free to tell students not to take
' action, but he was not free to tell them he favored what they
were doing.
He is responsible to the Board of Governors which runs
UBC. So far, the Board's policy has been to say only that it
is carrying on secret negotiations. Dr. Macdonald is bound by
the Board's policies to say no more.
Dr. Macdonald must protect his own position and particularly the position of UBC in its secret relations with the
government.
An institution which sanctioned boycotts by its students
and strikes by its faculty members would certainly not be
considered responsible.
Dr. Macdonald realizes this.
Thursday, Dr. Macdonald did not tell the students he
backs them fully in Operation Crisis.
But at the same time, he was careful not to even hint
that he is opposed, personally, to student action.
There are ways, and then there are ways, of giving support.
Hallowed halls and lusty cheers
There were moments Thursday to remember.
Nostalgic speeches were piled on emotion-packed chants and songs.
Noisy sign-carrying trekkers trudged a
happy way through busy downtown streets
and rocked the hallowed halls of justice with
lusty cheers.
UBC students in the resurrected tradition
of those students before them took up the fight
for higher education.
It was bigger than the first trek. It was
more colorful, more noisy but just as purposeful.
It was better than the second trek. Because only a few took part in the second trek.
The third trek will always be the best to
us, though. It was our trek.

GIVE US THE GREEN TO
STAY OUT OF THE RED
There is one sure way to
get money for higher education in B.C. We must convince
everyone that if they don't
support this cause, the communists will take over and
then they won't have any
money to give. You argue thus:
1) There are two competing
systems in the world today.
2) "They" are investing
heavily in higher education to
produce more and more engineers, physicists, chemists,
etc.
3) If we don't begin mass-
producing engineers, etc., we
will fall behind (that's a
phrase that strikes terror in
the heart!) THEM and THEY
will bury us (that phrase
should cause a choking sensation).
4) In order to compete in
this nuclear age, we cannot
afford to slow down—we must
move ahead (should bring
J. F. K. to mind and "Ask not
what your country . . ." will
flash in his mind). '
By now you will have the
fellow convinced that if he
doesn't write to has MLA and
actively support our cause, he
will be aiding THEIR cause
and cutting his own throat.
The point of all this being
that at least some of the money
granted to UBC for more, labs
in which we test atoms for
peace, etc. and chemicals for
peaceful, etc. purposes, (this
is a long sentence, isn't it!)—
at least some of the money
could be diverted to the
higher streams of learning—-
theoretical physics, chemistry
and mathematics and of
course philosophy, classical
studies and  literature.
•
Tell them that  our present
standard of living can't possibly be maintained unless we
fully support higher education
in B.C. The truth of the matter is that they can't afford
not to help. And don't mention poets, philosophers, historians, or megaphesizers
when you seek petitions—■
stick to the educated man who
can help, the WAR effort,
that's   the   ticket!
X-
The facts about a crucial issue
By FRED FLETCHER
Ubyssey Associate Editor
The University of B.C. will
be seriously crippled if the
provincial government does
not increase . the operating
grant.
This   is  the   opinion   of   the
following persons and groups:
• Dr.   John   B.   Macdonald;
• Chancellor    Dr.     Phyllis
Ross-
• The   Faculty   Association;
• The   Alumni   Association;
• High-ranking University
officials.
*
These   persons   and   groups
have taken this stand with
various degrees of intensity—
but each one has expressed
this conviction either to this
reporter or to another representative of this newspaper.
"The University would find
it very difficult to get along
on the present operating
grant," Chancellor Ross said to
me last week.
Dr.    Macdonald    has    made
even stronger statements.
Even Education Minister Les
Peterson recognizes that the
University has legitimate
needs that are not being met.
*
There can be no question that
the published figures regarding the University operating
budget are accurate.
Chancellor Ross told this reporter she deplored the fact
that these confidential figures
had  leaked  out.
Peterson did not respond to
repeated challenges in the
Legislature of a face-to-face
invitation from this reporter
to deny the figures.
The original sources for the
figures are morie than usually
reliable. The figures are as
trustworthy as if they had
been released officially.
The figures are these:
• The University of B.C. requested an increase of $2.6 million in its operating grant
over last year;
• It got from the provincial
government an , increase of $1
million;
• Victoria College. received
only 40 per cent of the budget
increase it requested;
• The University of B.C.
has committed all but $100,-
000 of its present budget
($1.6 million less than it asked
for) to salary increases and
other unavoidable expenditures;
• Enrolment projections indicate at least 1,000 additional
students will apply for admission to UBC next fall.
*
From    these    facts,    certain
implications are  clear:
An additional 1,000 students
will require 50 more professors to maintain the faculty-
student ratio at the present
1-20 (the Canadian average is
12 students to each professor).
At an average salary of
$7,000 per year, this will
necessitate additional operating expenditure of $350,000.
But we only have $100,000.
The University library has
only 600,000 books. Authorities say a University of this
size should have at least 1 million volumes.
The library is short-staffed
and is several months behind
in its cataloguing, severely
hampering senior and graduate students.
*
To     remedy    this     situation
will cost several hundreds of
thousands   of  dollars.
But we have only $100,000.
And there are other pressing
needs that can be remedied
only by increased operating
funds.
The only alternatives to decreased standards and sinking
morale are a fee scale or a
severe restriction on enrolment—perhaps even an enrolment freeze.
Neither  is  satisfactory.
That is why we are trekking. Friday, March 15, 1963

Not an ambulance
It's a truckwith-
firstaidequpment
By TIM PADMORE
The truth is out. We don't have an ambulance.
UBC's truckwithfirstaidequipment is exactly that, traffic
director Sir Ouvry Roberts said Wednesday.
He  said   the   converted   food
emergency   service
services truck  could  not possi- j would downtown.
than   they
bly operate as an ambulance.
"The provincial government
wouldn't allow it."
Which puts UBC right back
where it started. If an ambulance is needed for UBC it has
to come from downtown.
To make the patrol car satisfy
provincial requirements would
cost as much as $10,000, Sir
Ouvry said.
The car does have a two-way
radio and a first aid kit. No
stretcher.
"We don't need anything
more," Sir Ouvry said.
"Students    here    get    better
Engineers perform
beneficial burglary
Engineers went on a stealing  spree Thursday.
But the spree was in the interest  of students.
A red-sweatered hord converged on Brock Hall shortly
after 12:30 Thursday.
Engineers picked up every
chair in the lounge and cafeteria—to take to the AMS
General Meeting.
They even took Brock
proctor Ian MacKenzie's
green leather easy chair.
Here is what happens if someone breaks a leg:
• Someone dials the University's 'Emergency' number, 222.
• This rings the fire hall,
and dispatches the fire truck.
• At the same time they call
the   truckwithfirstaidequipment.
• The truckwithfirstaidequipment arrives and decides if
an  ambulance   Is  needed.
• It calls the Vancouver ambulance  and then  	
• Proceeds to the University
gates to guide the Vancouver
ambulance to the broken leg.
A student actually did break
his leg last Friday playing football.
He lay in agony in front of
the administration building for
20 minutes before an ambulance
arrived.
The downtown ambulance arrived at the same time as the
truckwithfirstaidequipment.
Why?
Sir Ouvry said he din't have
his report on the accident.
Perhaps no one knew the
magic telephone number, 222,
he suggested.
Students were promised a
campus ambulance two months
ago following a serious accident
on Marine drive where a student was trapped 20 minutes in
an overturned car until an
ambulance  arrived.
Split of Science,
Arts gets okay
University officials have
approved splitting of Arts
and Science into two separate  faculties next year.
The present single faculty
now enrols more than 50 per
cent of the student body and
carries 75 per cent of the
teaching duties.
Dr. Macdonald said the
split would increase intellectual stimulation and encourage
growth in blocks of related
disciplines.
Annual concert
The annual International
House concert will be held Friday, March 22, at 8 p.m! in
John  Oliver High School.
The concert is sponsored by
International House and Vancouver   Rotary   Clubs.
Tickets are available at International House and at the door.

Every home on the Lower
Mainland will be covered in the
petiton campaign this weekend.
Nearly 2,500 canvassers will
carry petitions to every household in Vancouver, Burnaby,
New Westminster, North and
West Vancouver, Coquitlam,
Port Moody and North' Surrey.
The three-day blitz, which began after Thursday's General
Meeting, has a goal of 250,000 to
300,000 signatures.
The city has been divided into
three-block areas. One student
will cover both sides of the street
in his area.
Campaign organizer Dave Gibbons estimates that each area
can be covered in three hours.
Students from the residences
will cover the busy downtown
areas.
They will hit shopping centres,
department stores, hockey
games and movie theatres in an
attempt to gain more signatures.
The 600 students marching to
the courthouse yesterday stood
on street corners for one hour
each.

KINGSTON—Wrestling tonight— Killer Kowalski vs.
Johnny Valentine! Get your
tickets early while there are
still some left.
A couple of natives stared
at the cluttered poster tacked
to the notice board outside
Maple Leaf Gardens, home of
Frank Mahovlich, Davey Keon
and on Thursday nights,
Whipper Billy Watson.
Inside, 1.6 students from
UBC skated on the famous
Gardens Ice, pushing small
chunks of rubber hastily in
circles.
They were getting in a little
practice—maybe a little Maple
Leaf -finesse -would, rub off—,
for the first game of the
Canadian college hockey
championships against Sherbrooke  University.
But they wouldn't play
where the immortals skate.
They had a short bus ride to
Kingston before their Stanley
Cup   series.
The place was deserted—
14,000 empty seats in the
country's biggest arena of our
national pastime.
'•UBC, McMaster favored in

headlines  in  Canada's biggest

WINDSOR—UBC's basket-
oall Thunderbirds arrived
r>ere Thursday and had a
first look at the gym at
Windsor—-or Assumption—
University where they will
Lry to take Canada's national
college title.
The Potkonjakless Birds
will try to club the three
2astern teams into submission with the new-old double
oost adpoted by coach Peter
Mullins.
Keith Hartley and Ron
Erickson will man the posts
in the absence of Mike Potkonjak who was leading the
Western conference in scoring when he suffered a
shoulder separation.
The Birds meet Maritime
champion Acadia University
in the first round tonight.
Birds are favored to use their
fast-break to crack Acadia's
zone defense and take the
game.
In the other first round
game, host Assumption—4ops
in the Ontario Conference—
meets Quebec champion Loyola University.
The winners will meet for
the championship Saturday
and the losers will play a
consolation   round.
Birds squeezed past University of Alberta Dinosaurs
at Calgary to t.ke the
Western championship with
a 12-4 record.
John Cook, lone forward,
and guards Gordie Betcher
and Ken MacDonald will
start with Hartley and Erickson.

High schools take over gym
UBC students catch spirit
UBC students - have tossed
away their blue and gold scarves
for  the  weekend.
Those that aren't gallivanting
around their home towns with
pencil in hand are wearing the
old home town colors right on
campus.
And they're really whooping
it up in the stands of UBC gym
for the 18th annual high school
basketball   tournament.
Wednesday and Thursday
were only the beginning.
When the I6-team tournament
comes to a climax on Saturday
night there will be an estimated
6,000 people stretching their
vocal cords in a jam-packed
house. UBC students will make
up a sizable portion of this
crowd.
Right now they are missing
classes to take in this action-
packed knockout tournament.
They sit up in the stands to see
if they are going to win their
wagers.
This was quite evident in
Thursday morning's second
game. Lord Byng and Prince
Rupert played a tight game
right down to the wire.
There were close to 1,000 fans
and their loyalty was split about
even. But one thing was appar-

In the final quarter whenever

in Mid-west
CHICAGO (CUP - CPS) —
Eleven mid-western American
universities have announced
plans to form an "academic common market" to make staff and
facilities of all institutions
available to individual students
at each school.
The program is designed to
able students to move freely
from one school to the others to
make use of libraries, laboratories and teachers important to
their fields of study.
The new plan is the latest development begun by the committee on institutional cooperation formed in 1958 by the universities of Wisconsin, Purdue,
Northwestern, Ohio State, Minnesota, Michigan State, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois and Chicago.
The new program will start
next fall for a two-year trial
period. A student may leave his
university for a semester or two
quarters to take courses or make
use of facilities not available at
his home school, and his transfer will be supervised by his
regular instructor. He will continue to pay fees to his home
school.
The plan will allow different
universities to specialize in certain areas through concentration
of resources.
SPEAKER at VCF spring banquet Thursday will be Rev.
Earl Palmer of the 1961 Campus Mission.

Students turned thumbs down
Thursday on a proposed revision
! of minimum academic requirements for those holding AMS offices.
AMS president Doug Stewart
had to call for a second vote before the proposal was officially
defeated.
The motion, backed by students council, drew more discussion than the rest of the revisions combined.
It asked that academic coverage be lowered from 60 to 55 per
cent for officers carrying 15
units or more and from 65 to 60
per cent ior those carrying less
than T5 units.
The motion was ruled defeated
becaUSe,7it failed to reach the required (W per cent majority.
Other revisions passed easily.
