Macdonald's helper named
Victoria College  registrar
Dr. R. R. Jeffels has resigned as assistant to the president
to become registrar of Victoria College.
He will assume his new post on July 1, the university
announced Thursday. An administration spokesman said no
successor had yet been named.
Dr. Jeffels was one of Dr. John Macdonald's top aides
and a co-author of the Macdonald Report.
He taught as a professor of French before joining the administration staff.
UBC finances still in dark
Socreds promise
start on colleges
Education Minister Leslie  Peterson  took the  first  step
towards implementing the Macdonald Report late Thursday
nigh. &
Peterson    announced    in   the
legislature that planning will
begin immediately on the Burnaby college proposed by Dr.
John Macdonald.
Planning could take up to two
years before construction is
started, he said.
Peterson also announced that
bills will be presented for the
construction of colleges in Vancouver, the Okanagan and the
He did not mention anything
about UBC's own financial
However, discussion over
UBC's operating grant is expected to take place this afternoon in the house.
Peterson also announced
Thursday that Notre Dame College, a Catholic institution at
Nelson, -will become the province's first private university.
And he confirmed that Victoria
College will become a university.
Dr. Macdonald, in his report
released in January, called for

The campus is ready to back Mac.
Students interviewed in a Ubyssey survey Thursday said
they were overwhelmingly in favor of striking or.trekking to
back the request of Dr.  John Macdonald for a $2.8 million
increase in the university  operating grant.
Meanwhile,    a   student   com-<^
the immediate establishment of
a four-year college in Burnaby
and two-year colleges in Vancouver, Kelowna and the Kootenays.
He also called for establishment of an academic commission
to set educational standards in
the institution and a finance
commission to administer funds.
Peterson's announ cement
came as students, faculty and
alumni began planning action to
protest the government's failure to give UBC the operating
grant it requires.
Peterson made only one reference to UBC, and that was outside the house when he talked
to reporters.
He said the government is
carrying on negotiations with
the Board of Governors over
University  finances.
Dr. Macdonald's budget called
for a $2.8 million increase in the
operating  grant.
The government gave about
$1 million.

Bird Calls will once again be

Student council was unanimous in deciding that the name
of the student telephone directory should foe called Bird Calls.
Gary Nielson, forestry president, said the only thing associating the* student telephone
directory with campus life was
the picture  on the cover.
Bird Calls is traditional, he
said. It not only has reference
to telephone calls but denotes
reference to the University
athletic  teams.
Council dropped the name
last year because advertisers,
it thought, were too unwilling
to pay money to promote their
product in a book called Bird
Calls.   It  was too ■ undignified.
UBC's ambulance

UBC's new  ambulance is
ready to rip.
Sir Ouvry Roberts, director
of UBC traffic, said Thursday
the new vehicle has been supplied with a two-way radio
telephone and "all necessary

All   the   necessary   first   aid
equipment,     however,    is    one
small box—about two feet long
i and   six   inches   high—painted
white with a red cross on it.
The truck was not even
carrying a stretcher when Ubyssey reporters checked it Thursday morning.
Men staffing the vehicle will
have completed first aid examinations by next week, Sir
Ouvry   said.
So now, says Sir Ouvry, if
you're injured in an accident,
phone the University fire department. If you can't phone,
use  the  fire  alarm • system.
The fire department will
send the fire truck or the chief's
car to the accident, and will
notify the traffic office and the
nearest  downtown ambulance.
If the accident is serious,
UBC's ambulance will carry
the injured to hospital or treat
the victim until the downtown
ambulance  arrives.
If the accident is minor, Sir
Ouvry's men will give first aid
and radio the downtown ambulance  to  turn  around.
The vehicle is available 24
hours a day. It's a security patrol truck during the night and
a traffic control unit in the sunshine  hours.

"I am aware that this university, as well as higher education
in this province, is fighting a
most crucial battle," he said.
"It is the newspaper's obligation to give as much help as
possible. "
Hunter, 20, an Arts IV student, succeeds Keith Bradbury as
editor of The Ubyssey in May.
He has been a member of the
staff for four years, three years
of which have been on the editor-
ial board.
Hunter said it was essential
The Ubyssey's autonomy be
maintained and the newspaper
kept free of student council domination.

he said.
"It should be, and will be, a

hope it will continue to be the
best college newspaper in Canada."
Hunter graduates this year

English. He will continue in

concentrate on hockey, football,
basketball,   rowing   and  rugby.
It is hoped the move will alleviate financial problems now plaguing athletics, and relieve

Advocates of the major-sport

top Canadian and American

The motion passed Wednesday
asks that MAC aim for "the
highest possible standard of
competitive excellence in as
broad an athletic program as
possible and especially in football, basketball, hockey, rugby
and rowing,'
It says those five sports can
"best contribute to the creation
and maintenance of spirit on
campus and goodwill in the community."
MAC came under fire in a recent report by Science president
Don Farish.
Farish said MAC is "simply
not the dynamic committee UBC
needs if it is to support anything
more than a mediocre sports program." He predicted MAC would
fold in five year.

Letters: Preferential ballot the best
How to vote
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
If properly used, the preferential ballot is the fairest way
of electing a candidate. Unfortunately there appears to be a
popular misunderstanding
about the nature of preferential voting which renders the
system both unfair and discriminatory.
The popular notion is that of
candidates A, B, and C, where
A is most likely to win, that to
give your favourite candidate,
say B, the best chance of victory you should mark candidate A last on the ballot even
if you fel he is 'more qualified
for the position than C.
In an election where a cand-
date wins on the first count but
loses on second votes, this kind
of fuzzy reasoning can be dis-
I propose that either (1) students be made thoroughly familiar with the operation of the
preferential ballot (ie: that
only the 2nd choices of the
votes for the candidate who is
already defeated are used and
that it in no way helps candidate A if the most powerful
contender C is put last in preference) or that (2) the election's committee abandon this
obfuscating and exacerbating
system for the simple and nondiscriminatory X ballot.
Yours truly,
Arts III
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your editorial in Tuesday's
edition quoted Malcolm Scott
as offering the Academic Symposium, among other events, as
evidence of the capacity of
student government to accom-
plush worthwhile things. While
not wishing to challenge the
capacity of student government
I must say that the success or
failure of the symposium is no
testimony to it. The symposium
is planned and executed by a
committee which is self-perpetuating and autonomous.
I am not intending to quibble
over a technicality here but
rather to clarify the principles
guiding the relationship of the
symposium to the university ot
large. Briefly, as is recognized
by responsible members of
student government, it is- essential that there be no restraint
"upon choice of agenda or discussion.
This is in the interest of all
concerned directly, and of the
university at large which must

The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
Mr. Gaglardi has stated a
clear challenge to academic
freedom at the university
level. This challenge can be
disregarded since he is in no
position to judge what should
be discussed on campus and
since his argument suffers
from, a common fallacy—that
of  appeal  to   sentiment.
However, his comment on
"children" at UBC deserves
severe criticism and should
excite the strong indignation of the Students. Mr. Gaglardi would have the public
believe that UBC students
are immature, inequipped to
make adequate decisions and
to  form   sensihle   convictions.
Because of this Mr. Gaglardi
feels impressionable "children" are being debauched by
sinful professors. It has become increasingly evident that
the Minister of Highways,
himself is not above reproach.
I would quote from Emerson:
"Do not think the youth has
no   force,   because  he   cannot
speak to  you  and  me.  Hark!
in the next room his voice is
sufficiently clear  and   emphatic.   It   seems   he   knows  how
to speak to his contemporaries.
Bashful or bold, then, he will
know how to make us seniors
very unnecessary."
Yours truly,
G. S. Briggs, President,
UBC Philosophy Assoc.
Residential college
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Ronald Ma's proposal for a
national graduate school is in
many ways a commendable
one. Not the least of these is
the ready practicability of such
a scheme.
At present several government agencies provide research
facilities for graduate and postdoctoral students in connection
with various universities. Moreover experiments have already
been made toward providing
what one might call 'academic
freedom' within government research agencies. Notably the
advanced studies group set up
by the Defence Board to pursue theoretical studies unhampered by the usual short-term
The National Research Council, The Dominion Archives,
The National Gallery, and the
Department of Agriculture provide working facilities for advanced studies as a matter of
course. Thus a national graduate school need not involve
the provision of separate research facilities, merely the extension of co-operative arrangements  already existant.
What would be required
would be a good residential
college. As examples one might
cite All Souls Oxford, or Mas-
sey College Toronto. All Souls
provides a lifelong haven for
distinguished workers, eliminating once and for all mundane monetary considerations;
while Massey College is designed to foster 'education
by association' during the more
limited period of regular grad
studies. >\

Wanted: Canadians in Moscow
Russian exchange student
The Russian students can't help appreciating
very much the initiative of UBC to exchange
students between our countries. At universities
and other higher educational establishments of
the USSR there are more than 15,000 foreign
students from 80 countries. But unfortunately
there  are  no  Canadians  among them.
At the University of Moscow alone one of
every 15 students (the total enrolment 30,000) is
a foreigner. However, the Russians can learn
about the Canadian university life only secondhand—from American and British students. But
it goes without saying that direct contacts among
students of Canada and the Soviet Union are the
best way of becoming acquainted with each
•    *    *
As a Moscovite I am naturally glad that a
Canadian exchange scholar who will go to the
USSR this autumn has chosen among all higher
educational establishments the University of
Moscow. Once it was the first university in Russia (in 1962 there were more than 4,000 universities and secondary specialized schools with
nearly five million students). However, now only
the faculties of humanities are in the original
building.   They   include  faculties  of   philology,
history, philosophy, law, economics, journalism
and oriental languages.
The students who study natural sciences
(chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics, geology, geography) occupy a new 32-storey building
on the hills of Moscow. There is also a special
preparatory faculty, where foreign students
study only the Russian language for a whole
academic year in order to understand lectures
given in Russian.
*    *    *
Among 2,000 professors of the university
there are many scientists whose names are
known outside the USSR. About 900 Russian
and 400 foreign exchange scientists do research
work in four research institutes (mechanics,
astronomy, nuclear physics, anthropology) which -
are components of the university. It includes also
five astronomic observatories, three museums
(zoology, anthropology, geography) and a botanic
Personally I foresee that the only difficulty
for a Canadian exchange student will be travel
expenses. I say for a Canadian, because the student council of the USSR (the Russian NFCUS)
fully pays all travelling expenses of Soviet exchange students. But I would hope that the visit
of the first Canadian exchange student to the
USSR will be the beginning of the permanent
exchange between student organizations of the
respective countries.

control, I decided that this
letter would be more constant with My policy of nonintervention which has been
in  effect  for several  years.
I have always found atheists and agnostics most embarrassing. Here am I RESPONSIBLE for their existence and
they have the audacity to denv
mine! I have half a mind to go
back in time and unexist them
but that would take too much
time and as the physicists say,
the universe is slowly dying
so I have to suffer these fools
*   *    *
But now that I think of it,
ARE they such fools? After
all, I haven't given an an-
pearance for many years. No
person living today has actu-
all SEEN Ma as, for example,
they say Moses did. Now that
I think of it. there's little evidence that I DO exist, as far
as you 20th century people
are concerned. So where floes
this leave the inquiring professor? And where does it put
those who tried to have him
fired or jailed or silenced or
burnt at the stake? Well, now,
let Me see.
I've deceided to make Dr.
Remnant's  philosophy  courses
mandatory for all those attending My college in the sky. You
see, all who get to heaven are
encouraged to go to college so
that our standard of after-
living here will be enhanced.
And what do philosophy
courses have to do with it?
Well, they tend to make us
want to question our cherished
beliefs (e.g. that MEN exist)
and to force us to be honest
with ourselves in the light of
all available evidence. Some
of you Canadians haven't
learned even the essential element of the democratic life,
namely, to cherish the opinions
of dissenters—for thus only
can change or progress be
made,  or  truth be  aproached.
" •    •    •
Of course, all these remarks
apply to Dr. Stroll who questioned the authenticity of one
of those fellows who claimed
to be My son. Jesus himself
told Me just yesterday (yes,
Jesus DID make it to heaven)
that He disapproved of those
who would silence these professors—for His message was
to love and to tolerate, not
to hate or cast stones.
May I leave you with one
last word of advice? Listen
closely to the philosophers—■
they are men after My own
heart—for they assume little
and they try to improve themselves and their world. And
these things are the essence
of integrity and idealism—
things close to any religion
worthy of the  name. Friday, March 8,  1963

Tne Ilh-1' threatened Thursday to take ice hockey out of
the 1964 Winter Olympics in
Innsbruck, Austria if the Federation didn't get a larger share
of the television revenue.
IIHF president Bunny
Ahearne announced in Sweden
—the present site of the World
Hockey Championships-—that
the Federation could make more
money if . they conducted their
own   tournament.
Ahearne claims local Austrian organizers are getting
$300;000 from the European
television network, Eurovision,
and that the Federation is getting only $3,000.
He figures if they conducted
their own tournament they
would  get $125,000.
Ahearne feels the proceeds
should be split equally between the International Olympic Committee, the organizers,
and the International Ice
Hockey Federation.

Hinamarch said, the complaint
won't change present plans.

For fans who like their
hockey rare, last weekend's
Manitoba series was well done.
They saw some entertainment hockey, a game protested
by the referee, an unusual collection of Brock loudmouths,
and even a few cheerleaders.
The fans who were there will
recall an incident which almost
abrubtly ended Saturday's contest in the second period.
The Birds were ahead 2-1
when Manitoba was assessed a
_er\ch penalty. Referee Gordie
logue pointed to Manitoba's
team captain Gerry Wilson to
serve the two-minute sentence.
He refused to go to the penalty
30X so he was given a 10-
ninute misconduct and follow
ng that, a game misconduct.

PCL team dares Birds;
demand soccer rematch
Columbus Italians of the Pacific Coast Soccer League
have issued a challenge to UBC Thunderbirds' coach Joe
The Columbus team and its volatile army of fans were
both embarrassed and indignant at the PCL's recent 3-1
defeat at the impertinent hands of the Birds and demanded
a rematch.
Coach Johnson, who still has hopes of getting his
classy Birds into the PCL gladly agreed. Game will be
played Thursday, 8 p.m. at Callister Park.
Birds, meanwhile, have an active weekend ahead of
them. They meet St. Andrews in a league game Saturday
afternoon at Mclnnes Field. Birds have clinched the Mainland League title.
UBC usually begins its season later than the American
colleges, consequently the Birds
are not in top competitive form
until summer.
Two meets precede the Pan
Am games, one with the Lake
Washington Rowing Club, who
will represent the U.S. in the
four with cox, four without cox
and the paired oar shell.
UBC will enter two fours in
the Seattle race.
In a retqrn match on Coal
Harbour, Lake Washington will
combine two fours to race in
an eight-oared shell.
A meet with traditional rival
the University of Washington,
is tentatively scheduled.
Looking to the game, several South American crews are
highly rated, but the Vesper
Boat club from Philadelphia,
the United States entry in the
World championships last year,
will be the Thunderbirds greatest worry.
