Two weeks ago, 3,500 cheering, jeering students filled the

Tuesday, an even greater
number of students were there
for a memorial service in
memory of assassinated president John F. Kennedy.
This time they were silent.
It was a simple and moving
symbol of the meaning of the
youthful, courageous U.S. president held for UBC students.
For many students it was
the first time they had attended
a religious service in years.
Prayers were led by the
principals of the St. Mark's
College, the Anglican Theological College, and Union College. Other campus religious
leaders read the scripture and
Psalm 23.
"We, as members of a university community, also salute
a man who was a scholar as
well as a statesman," said UBC
president John B. Macdonald.
"John Fitzgerald Kennedy
was an American public servant with courage and conviction. A gallant soldier in a
righteous cause, a scholar blessed  with . wisdom,  a   graduate
with honor in the school of
practical politics, a man of
wealth with a passion to help
the underprivileged, a strong
young   American   with   confi

Club built
ORSAY, France (CUP) —
Professional engineers and professors are building a clubhouse at the university here to

Man today is at the same stage as the dinosaur before
it died out.
And like the dinosaur, he
will also die, unless he learns
to cope with the modern world,
Dr. Brock Chisholm, former
head of the World Health Organization, told 500 UBC students Monday.
"The only instrument for his
survival is the brain," said the
controversial speaker.
If humanity is to survive,
man must stop thinking in
terms of narrow nationalism.
"The whole world has become our survival group today," he said.
"We have always learned at
our mother's knee that the
right, effective thing is to in-
crese our side's ability to
"It's not a matter of sense
but of tradition."
He urged students to reject
the old patterns of belief and

"Everything has been
changed since the invention of
the atomic bomb."
When we have learned to
think we stand a chance of
solving the two problems that
threaten human survival: Overpopulation and arms.
"If oxtr consciences forced
us to, we could feed the
world," said Dr. Chisholm. "It
would be expensive, but we
could do it."
"If our consciences didn't
prevent us, we would stop
overpopulating the world."

Like most endeavors, the
newspaper racket is filled
with Annual Cliches.
There's an obvious reason
for it—"events" recur year
, after year with utter predictability (mostly because they're
marked on the calendar).
On "events" like Valentine's Day, newspapers run
the picture of a good-looking
and well (not TOO well—
family newspaper, y'know)—
built broad and a huge red
paper heart.
• •    •
On St. Patrick's Day the
picture is of a similar broad
wearing a shamrock-laden hat
and smoking a clay pipe.
And Easter, the broad with
a huge gooey chocolate rabbit, or maybe a real live
smelly rabbit, or maybe a
thousand gooey chocolate
(This is because they can't
run a picture of the broad and
a Crucifixion scene—family
newspaper, y'know).
And then there's the Dominion Day (or is it Fourth of
July?) Cliche, and the Labor
Day list of so many dead and
so many maimed—200 or so
"tragedies"—half of whom
weren't wearing seat belts.
That broad is back again
at Thanksgiving, with a great
gobbling turkey (but nary an
• •    •
And on November 11 there's
the crowd of people around
the cenotaph — "Remembering." Although most of them
are probably Wondering—
wondering why the hell
they're standing out in the
rain, being silent for two minutes and feeling sort of foolish about it all.
Of course, there's the Seasons Cliches: flowers for
spring; broad-in-bathing-suit
for summer; leaves for fall;
and snow for winter.
(Vancouver newspapers are
an exception to this: they run
the picture of the broad in the
bathing suit all year round
because they LIKE that pic-
ture—and nobody wants to
admit it rains all goddam
year, anyway).
But now we come to the
greatest Cliche of them all—
the Christmas Cliche. The
* Santa Claus and rye whiskey
routine, the birthday of the
Son of God who somehow
ended up hustling hand-
painted ties in a bargain
• • ' •
And so it comes to The
Ubyssey. A month early, but
that's because we-gotta-shut-
down-and-study - for - exams-
just-like-ever y body-else.
According to the Canadian
Handbook of Newspaper Cliches (under sub-heading College Papers), I'm supposed to
say it's been nice writing a
column for you this term and
sincerely wish you Good
Luck on Your Exams and
Merry Christmas and All the
Best in the New Year .

frantic pleas that the AMS office had been closed down Friday afternoon.
Her announcement threw
council into an uproar—as for
many councillors, signing or
forgetting to sign the list had
become automatic, and they
couldn't remember whether
they had or hadn't.
When the smoke cleared,
only Frosh President Jason
Leask, Ubyssey Editor-in-Chief
Mike Hunter, and Ubyssey
council reporter Tom Wayman
were without a supper.
"I'm not taking this," said
Leask, and left to buy a meal

After Leask left, Wayman
demolished a cold plate that
was eventually provided, and
then ate Leask's too.

then consumed three desserts
that had been placed on a
nearby table, ready for councillors.

covered over the Hunter-bitten portion with fresh gravy,

After dinner, only a handful
of councillors returned to the
chamber for the second half
of the meeting. The rest went
to the Brock Board Room to
watch the SUB vote tallying.
"Some people are obviously
signing up for dinner and then
not coming back to council,"
said  Hunter.
"This is disgraceful."
The meeting adjourned at
6:25 p.m. making it the shortest council session on record.
Leask didn't return from
the Village until about an hour
He said his dinner was delicious.

A reward
The favorable result of Monday's student union
building referendum is a just reward for those who have
spent up to three years laying the groundwork for SUB.
More than 5,300 students, 75 per cent of those voting,
endorsed the building.
The unexpectedly high turnout, and the equally
unexpected "Yes" vote is a tribute to the years of work
by chief planner Dean Feltham and his committee.
Feltham and crew have ground out tens of thousands
of pages of mimeographed reports, information bulletins,
and briefs. Some of them have spent 20 or 30 hours a
week for two years helping compile attitude and interest
surveys, working out financial and facilities arrangements, and carrying on negotiations with governments,
business, and the administration.
Feltham himself spent his whole summer, 12 hours
a day, working out final plans in preparation for Monday's
It is fitting that the biggest project ever undertaken
by the AMS, and the one which involved the most work,
received the biggest reception from students.
And, although Feltham and student council have
extracted several juicy concessions from the administration, the battle isn't over yet.
Negotiations on several aspects of the site must still
be carried out, and guidelines for the architectural competition must be laid.
The future's biggest project ,however, is going to
once again concern the whole student body. The $5 fee
increase, rejected by less than 300 votes Monday, will be
put up again, probably sometime in January.
It must succeed if the building is to go ahead unhindered — the administration is against the present
interest-laden 30-year deal, and so is student council.
Students should continue to think about SUB over
the holidays, and be prepared to give is another boost
next January.
Southern justice
As a nation mourned last week, a second shooting
in Dallas somehow made a mockery of the tragedy of
President Kennedy's death.
A striptease-joint operator, linked with hoodlums
from Chicago, tried to become a national hero by revenging the seemingly senseless killing of Kennedy.
In broad daylight, in the Dallas police station, Jack
Ruby, twice charged with carrying a concealed weapon,
stepped from a group of newsmen and cut down alleged
assassin Lee Harvey Oswald before the eyes of police and
a national television audience.
The whole episode had the trappings of a Southern
People could only wonder why a man with Ruby's
record was allowed into the group that was to see
Oswald, suddenly the most hated man in the U.S., transferred from the station into a van to take him to a country
They could only question certain aspects of a system in which elected law enforcement officials were
allowed to convict Oswald by press—without the benefit
of legal trial.
Certainly, everyone wanted to see the death
But revenge by a man like Ruby?
Killing Oswald quickly—if indeed he was the assassin—was too good for him. He never had to live with
himself for long. He was never to know the suffering
and grief the president's death caused.
But it was also a mockery of the man who had been
so concerned for the rights of individuals. Would not
the president have expected Oswald to have the benefit
of a fair trial, if there could be such a thing under the
circumstances ?
Southern justice, the Dallas police department, and
Jack Ruby leave a bad taste.

U.S. is dying
Editor, The Ubyssey;
Words cannot express adequately the horror of President Kennedy's untimely
death. With the murder of his
assassin, twice in 48 hours the
preservation of law and order
had broken down.
Often have we watched
foreign governments fall to
many a coup, but never before
have we seen democracy dying as it now is in the United
Democracy in the U.S. has
grown so complex that it is
now possible to have all the
trappings of democracy, but
little of its real substance. Is
U.S. democracy being reduced
to a hard empty shell?

Get your bid in now
for golf-course parking
Editor, The Ubyssey;
The five-year plan to build
a seven-minute academic core
is nothing more than a thinly-
disguised effort to eliminate
roadways from the campus.
Automobiles, it would seem,
are to become machines to
park out in the south woods
someplace, beyond the turkeys
and the pigs, leaving students
to use their pioneering instincts in finding a muddy
route to classes, a hike which
will begin at six A.M. to get
to them in time; simulating
each morning the Great Trek,
of 1923.
Boulders might be carried
by each student to lend an air
of authenticity, which could
be dropped in front of the
SUB location in mute protest
to the fact that we didn't
spend $4 million instead to
build the world's largest park-
•    •    •
Those persons unable to
find the Fraser River parking
area could zoom around the
proposed ring-road which will
pass within one mile (at its
nearest point) to the nearest
classroom    while    their   pas
sengers might be heard
screaming, "Let me out here;
my first lecture is only 40
minutes away, as the crow
The direction on this super
non-access road could be reversed twice daily to eliminate
that sense of dull routine to
which students are subject.
•    •    •
A few fortunate ones might
come upon the idea of bringing boats up to the bottom of
the cliff below Fort Camp.
This would have the double
advantage of providing them
with the shortest distance
(vertical though it might be)
to the academic core, and of
frightening off forever the
naked men who plague us
with their darting up and
down the beach.
If we had to, w.e could build
our own marina — at least it
would be cheaper in the
long - run than bouncing
through pot-holes in the dark.
The time is now ripe to
reserve parking space on the
golf course for it is only a
matter of time until it, too,
will have to go.

Johnson lays out policy:
the strong Kennedy line
President Lyndon B. Johnson's views on current issues
are well known through his
many speeches in the United
States and abroad.
Following are excerpts from
recent speeches showing his
thoughts on foreign policy, nuclear defense, relations with
the Soviet Union and other
On relations between the
Western nations and the Communist Bloc:
• •    •
"It is necessary for free
men to be firm . . . from time
to time, sensible arrangements
may be possible which will reduce tensions in some areas of
conflict. But they are arrangements which involve mutual
advantage. For the time being,
it is clear that the cold war —
— the constant probing for
weak spots in the shield ot
freedom will continue."
On nuclear defense co-operation between the U.S. and its
Atlantic allies:
"We must deal with the unfinished business of our nuclear partnership . . . for the
defense of Western Europe,

complex. To the threat of massive Soviet ground forces has
been added the threat of
Soviet missiles. We must be

On policy toward Communism:
"Reciprocity is the key to
peace. If the Soviets want
America's co-operation, they
can earn it. If the Soviets
want America's hostility they
certainly can provoke it. But
we are ready to give the
Soviets the opportunity to
demonstrate that they are
ready to make limited agreements on precise subjects and
to abide by these decisions in
the interests of humanity."

we are going to the moon ,and
we are going to make that
trip as soon as we can . . . the
U.S. does not covet a single
piece of real estate in the rest
of the universe. We enter
space to serve the cause of
peace, to make life better for
every creature on earth . . ."
On the emergence of new
nations lo independent status:
"There is cause for greater
confidence in the ultimate
spread of universal freedom.
This is not a nebulous and
vague conjecture.
Very tangible evidence
exists in support of this faith.
Since the end of World War
II, more new nations have
come into being than ever
before. Of these new nations,
not one has chosen to place
itself under an ideological
totalitarianism. All have
sought to establish and perfect
a free system."
On the American Negro's
fight for equality:
"It is empty to plead that
the solution to the dilemmas
of the present rests on the
hands of the clock. The solution is in our hands. Unless we
are willing to yield up our
destiny of greatness among
the civilizations of history,
Americans—white and Negro
together — must be about the
business of resolving the
challenge which confronts us
now ..."

On civil rights:
"People who have been
denied basic rights for centuries have reached the explosion point where they are
demanding those rights now.
And it is not possible to find
logical^ moral reasons to say
them nay . . . government will
play its proper role."
On progress in science:
"Science is not creating our
problems — it is creating
answers to our problems. A
rare moment of opportunity
is upon us. But many to whom
we should turn for affirmation, confidence and enthusiasm are offering doubt, disenchantment and despair . . .
We are not reaching for
prestige in space — we are
reaching for peace ..."
On America's aims for
"We do not seek to divide
the world, but to unite it. We
look toward the day when all
men may live without suspicion, without fear, without
anxiety as trusting neighbors
and allies together in the
name of freedom."
"America does not strive to
avoid war because we fear it
but because we hate it. We do
not strive for peace because

It's diseased'
And blasts it again
. . . rotten apples
Council okays
Council Monday night approved the appointment of the
student finance revisions committee.
Accepted for the committee
were Ann Mackenzie, Nursing
IV; Jim Bodel, Commerce II;
Garth Brown, Arts III; Lome
Hudson, Law I; Chris Hansen,
AMS treasurer.
Chairman of the committee
is Mike Coleman, Arts President. Coleman is also the
Mason between the student finances revisions committee,
and the student government revisions committee.
Both the committees were
set up as a result of recommendations in AMS president
Malcolm Scott's Manifesto—
his mid-year report.
Ubyssey Council Reporter
Student council was slammed as "diseased" by Arts
President Mike Coleman in a
report issued to The Ubyssey.
"The situation is unhealthy," Coleman said.
"There are too damn many
rotten apples.
• •    •
"There are too many power-
and-status-hungry people who
do little to justify their positions."
Coleman said his attack
was not against all student
"My charges are more concerned with the so-called
supreme legislative body,
student council, and more particularly the AMS executive."
• •    •
"Some  of them,"  Coleman
continued," do little to earn
their titles of 'student leaders.' "
Coleman blamed this inactivity on the disillusionment
of elected undergraduate
presidents such as himself,
who sit on council.
After   one   year,   he   said,
"They prefer to forget about
student government.
"They become cynical."
Coleman continued:
• •    •
"I have a deep disgust regarding student government
at UBC.
"I am greatly disillusioned
with the calibre of student officials."
"As I  see it,"  he said,  "I
have two alternatives: to stay
in AMS and fight for my
ideals, or to resign and raise
a ruckus outside."
• •    •
Coleman said he is working
now on both student government and student finance revisions committees to help
bring about reform.
He called on the student
body to asist in the improving
of student government:
"All students must assist in
revising student government
and must further be encouraged to act on their convictions—or the general calibre
of elected officials will continue to decline."
• •    •
But Coleman cautioned not
to rely too much on council-
appointed reform committees.
"The petty intrigues of the
so-called in-group are atrocious and unbelievable," he
said. "Even the reform element has, in most cases,
changed its course from idealism   to   personal,   year-round
politicking of the worst kind."
Coleman stated his personal
ideal of a student leader is
the Rhodes scholarship winner.
"But," he pointed out, "over
the past few years, the Rhodes
scholars have been less and
less involved in student
council activities."
• • •
"This," he emphasized, "is
indicative both of the calibre
of student leadership at present and its trend or general

And Frosh fare worse than

These statistics were compiled by the student services
and counselling department
from the cards students filled
out at registration.
A. F. Shirran, lecturer in
psychology and member of the
counselling corps, said the
survey showed that average
earnings were up from last
"But", he said, "the validity
of the statistics are in some
doubt because some students
may have used arbitrary figures in filling out the card."
The counselling department,
in conjunction with the National Employment Service,
placed about 1,500 students in
summer jobs last year, Shirran said.
"We try to place students in
their respective fields or in
the fields in which they are interested," he said.
The greatest range of opportunities are open to engineers
at the moment, especially electrical engineers, he said. "But
the job offers for graduates
in all fields are more numerous now than at any other
In a faculty breakdown of

engineers came first with average summer earnings of $1,133,
followed by forestry with
$1,066, commerce $1,046, architecture $1,043, education
$870, science $846, and arts
"But just because students
earned these wages doesn't
mean that they saved it all,"
he said. "Out of this has to
come summer expenses, and
also probably some winter session bills which were unpaid
at the end of term."
"At least 150 major companies will be interviewing
students at the office this
year, and it is to the students
advantage to take this opportunity," Shirran said.
He did not know how the
job situation would be this
year. "It all depends on the
state of the economy and the
business climate."
The counselling office is just
west of the Armory on the

UBC's top-notch chemistry department
Size is no measure - it's people
UBC has the largest chemistry department of any university in Canada and one of
the best.
It has 40 members on its
faculty, is presently training
50 Ph.D. and 45 M. Sc. students, and teaches chemistry
to a total of 3700 students.
"It is as big as any of the
chemistry departments in
most of the large American
universities," said Dr. W. A.
Bryce, acting head of the department.
• •    •
And the areas of research
carried on are just as numerous as the staff members.
They cover all aspects of
modern   chemistry.
"We are strong in all
branches of chemistry," said
Dr. Bryce, "but there are
certain areas in which we are
really specialists."
One of the most important
of these areas is the study of
natural products/Natural products include such substances
as penicillin, steroids and
wood fibre products which tie
in with B.C. industry.
"Work in wood chemistry
and polysaccaride chemistry
is closely related to work done
in the forest products laboratory on campus and is of interest to the pulp and paper
industry in B.C., said Dr.
• •    •
But the main purpose of
the department is not to help
"This is a basic research
department," said Dr. Bryce,
"If the work we do can be
applied to B.C. industry, then
we are very pleased; but we
don't solicit research support
on this basis.
"Basic research material is
of interest in chemistry in a
very wide sense. We are not
primarily concerned with applications."
A total of $300,000 is provided each year by various
agencies   for   research   work.

The addition of three new
wings has more than doubled
the amount of space available
for research and teaching.
The south wing, added in
1959, and the latest addition,
the east wing, are devoted almost entirely to undergraduate teaching.
The   north   wing   and   the
main building house the administrative offices and research labs.
It was in this main building in 1960, that a young English chemist, Dr. Neil Bartlett, combined xenon with
platinum and fluorine to give
the product, xenon platinum

one of the inert gases had
been made to react chemically with another substance and
the discovery was hailed by
chemists around the world as

"Dr. Bartlett has achieved
international fame in his work
on the noble gases," said Dr.
Bryce. "His name is a household word in chemical circles
throughout the world."

Earlier this year, Dr. Bartlett became the first recipient of the Noranda lectureship which is to be awarded
annually to chemists working
in Canada by the Noranda
Mining Co.
The award added to the
long list of such prizes that
have been won by UBC chemists in the last few years.
On Nov. 4 of this year, the
Meldola Medal of the Royal
Institute of Chemistry was
presented to Dr. James Trotter for his work in X-ray crystallography.

• •    *
It is not just the size of the
chemistry department that is
responsible for its  success.
"It is the scientific distinction of people that determines
the strength of a department,"
says Dr. Bryce.
The research and teaching
staff is drawn from universities all over the world, but
the majority of the members
are Canadians or British.
Its size has been gradually
increasing over the past few
years and the administration
plans to add four or five new
members each year.
Dr. Bryce is acting as head
of the department while head
Dr. C. A. McDowell is spending a sabbatical year as a
visiting professor in the department of theoretical chemistry at Cambridge.
Out of the 350 graduate
students who applied for
study in the graduate section
last year only 35 were accepted.
Some of these were B. Sc.
graduates in honors chemistry
from UBC.
• • •
The department tends to
level off its gain in size within the next four years when
the chemistry complex of
buildings will be working to
its  full  capacity.
No further buildings are
planned in the immediate future. As Dr. Bryce said, "I
hope we're finished for the
time being at having to be advisors to architects."

Rate reduction at rink
will benefit students
It may cost less for students to skate at the Thunderbird Sports Centre after
Arena manager Malcolm
Lee said the management
committee will review the
total rate schedule at Christmas when the first financial
statement will be available.
"If we find we are making
a profit, UBC students will
be the first to get lower rates
for skating."
First started
When operation first started, no one could accurately
predict operating costs/
Use of the rink has been
such that Lee says he's almost certain some of the
rates can be lowered.
"Although the rink is
heavily used there is still a
fair bit of open time both in
the skating and curling section," Lee said.
"The rink is open from
6.30 a.m. to 2 a.m. and under
our pay-as-you-play curling
arrangement, we could easily
accommodate more students
on weekends.
"If eight students decide
they want to get a curling
match going, all they have to
do is come to the rink, pay
50 cents each and play.
"Curling times can be
booked in advance for either
league or individual play.
The hockey-skating rink
is also heavily used. The
physical education department rents ice-time three
hours each school day except
Wednesday. They pay the
same rate as other students,
Lee said.
Intra-murals, public skating and other student and
outside groups take up much
of the remaining time, Lee
"But with the exams starting and the physical education stopping Dec. 6, we'll
have quite a bit of ice-time
Hourly rates
"Rates are $10 an hour before 6 p.m. and $12 per hour
after that during weekdays.
"Weekends we charge $10
per hour until noon, $12 per
hour from noon to 2 p.m. and
$15 after that.
"These are special student
rates. Outside groups pay
more," Lee said.

The Thunderbird hockey

which is expected to provide
the T'Birds with more of the
rugged competition needed to
prepare them for their tough
flight through the upcoming
intercollegiate   schedule.

Dave Morris and Mike Smith
are still out of town and coach
Dennis Selder plans several
changes to make up for their
Ken Cairns, right wing on
the top line, will centre the
third line with Bob Parker
taking his place, and defence-
man| Clint Smith will move up
to strengthen the forward line.
Selder, in an effort to improve the team's positional
play, intends to continue experimenting with his lines to find
the best possible combinations.
After the game the team will
break up until they meet again
for a five-game tour of Southern Alberta the first week in
Selder hopes to "pick up some

Father David Bauer makes his

The succession of UBC's
men's sports from the Western Canadian Intercollegiate
Athletic Association has left
UBC's women out in the cold
as far as athletic competition
is concerned.
The men are due to drop
out of WCIAA next year, and
join the Pacific Northwest
league, which consists of
teams from the Northwest
United States.
According to the WCIAA
constitution, women's and
men's athletics are interdependent and must compete in the
same league.
• •    •
This resolution was passed
two years ago at the WCIAA
general meeting when women
athletes decided their organizations were too weak for
them to enter leagues different than the men.
So there are two choices
facing UBC's women. According to the constitution they
are automatically out of
WCIAA next year, along with
the men. They will then be
faced with PNW competition.
Or they can appeal to
change the constitution and
stay in the Canadian league.
For the men PNW is ideal.
It offers more and better competition, as well as bringing
up the big names from the
• •   •
But women's competition is
poor, if present at all, in the
PNW league.
"U.S. women do not," according to UBC's Women's
Athletic Association President
Pat Nichols, "show any interest in intercollegiate competition at all."
And the few that do enter
competition are not enough.
Some sport such as basketball,
played by women in the
States, at UBC are entirely
This would mean elimination of teams at UBC because
of lack of competition in the
• •    •
The UBC women are now
faced with the alternative of
going to the WCIAA council
in May and voting for a
change in the constitution. If
it was passed it could mean
the reverse of the resolution
passed two years ago. It
would mean that women's and
men's athletics in each university in the WCIAA would
make their own choice of
But whether the new resolution will be passed is debatable. UBC's women are
independent of the men, but
in the other universities the
women are completely dependent.
Upon their decision rests
future and survival of
women's athletics at UBC.

Football Birds
head statistics
The UBC football Thunderbirds finished second in the
Western Intercollegiate league, but left their mark on the
prairie school in doing so. The Birds headed the statistical
sheets in several significant categories.
Final WCIAA football statistics show UBC halfback Bob
Sweet as the top ground-
gainer in the conference.
Sweet picked up 336 yards in
60 carries, for a 5.6 yard average.
University of Alberta's Ken
Nielsen was a close second with
326 yards in 33 attempts.   -
Other Bird backs ranked
were Ray Wickland and Norm
Thomas, who gained 208 and
155 yards, respectively.
Thunderbird pass receivers
Tom Thomson and Robin
Dyke pulled in 18 and 19
tosses for a total of 504 yards.
Both averaged close to 75 per
cent on completions.
In other departments Birds
merited first rating. Ken Dan-
chuk led in pass interceptions
with four, Sweet recorded the
longest run from scrimmage in
a 60-yard scoring burst, and
scrappy punt returnman Lloyd
Davis headed his field with a
six-yard average.
UBC ran 349 offensive plays,
fifty more than their nearest
rival, WCIAA champion U

Cellar dwellers
get uppance
There has been a revision
in the schedule of the Locarno
Beach grid league and the fan-
tabulous Tip-Toppers, led by
the offensive threat of Moon
Mullins, Hike Punter, and
Burnt Macaroni, will take on
the lowly Cellar Dwellers.
Naturally the Tip-Toppers
are favoured to repeat their
overwhelming performance of
last week when they won 63-7.
Game time is 12:00 Sunday.
Last chance
for publicity
Friday's paper will be the
last chance to publicize sports
events during the holiday.
The Ubyssey takes a holiday,
too. Student reporters and
editors try to cram the term's
work into a few days.

cultivating interested

wishing its readers the best
of the coming Season. Any
comments they may have on
how this column might be
of better service to the GSA,

subject matter, would be
appreciated. Such comments
may be left in the GSA

time,  and will be reviewed
for implemenation in the
