Married students  ignored'
in Acadia Camp slum shacks
AMS plans
on pilfering
The Alma Mater Society executive has declared all-out
war on campus thieves.
Students in Acadia Camp
married quarters are living in
slum conditions, a resident
charged Tuesday.
And Housing Administration,
he said, refuses to do anything
about it.
Graduate student Michael
Deland said paint on the walls
of the 25-year-old "temporary"
huts are peeling off and large
areas of black mold are forming.
A group called the Married
Students Wives is working
wiih the AMS on a formal
complaint on matters relating to married residences.
See story Page 2.
"It's like a slum," Deland
"And I've tried to get housing
to paint them, or at least give
us the paint and let us do it
ourselves but we've never succeeded."
Deland said each time he
tried, he was told to come back,
then finally told that they had
run out of money.
"If they are going to use our
rent to build new single student
residences, the least they can
do is take out some of it to
'ceep up the married units."
Deland said he has lived
there four years, and the only
"hings done in the way of upkeep is to collect garbage and
mow the lawns a few times
during the summer.
"Once, they replaced a doorknob*." he said.
With only 100 units available
for more than 1,800 married
students, the housing shortage
is a serious problem, Deland
"A lot of my married friends
are pretty bitter," he said.
"I don't want to put all the
blame on housing for this," he
added. "They just aren't given
enough for their operating
"But the only time I've
known them to do any work
on a dwelling is when it has
been turned down by two or
three couples in a  row."
AMS second vice-president
Byron Hender said Wednesday
student council will move to
crack down on a growing number of briefcase snatchers and
overcoat thieves.
"If it is serious enough, the
RCMP will be  called in,"  he
Past AMS attempts to curb
campus crime have been frustrated, said Hender, because
students refused to press
Now student council executives are going to step up a
campaign to prosecute offenders: briefcase lifters, wallet
takers, and overcoat-and-um-
brella thieves.
"What we will do normally
is charge them in student
court," he said.
He emphasized any member
of the AMS can press charges,
and said anyone wanting information as to procedure
should contact a member of the
"If a student is found guilty
of theft in student court," Hender said, "it could result in a
$25 fine and cancellation of
AMS privileges.
Theft over $50 is a major
offence, Hender said, and
charges can be laid in criminal
He pointed out a briefcase
often contains at least $50
vo-th of books.
"If student court has enough
evidence to convict a thief,
presumably this is enough evidence for the RCMP to charge
him, too," Hender said.
"We don't want to send a
student to jail for three months
for stealing three notebooks.
"But if it's a serious, or a
second offense, the AMS will
lay  criminal charges."
He added downtown bookstores have been advised to
check the ownership of any
textbooks sold to them.
. . . student editor
The Ubyssey
gets some
Five thousand yellow-and-
blue tabloids flooded the campus Tuesday, as the administration sought to re-open communication with the student body.
"UBC Reports is a bi-monthly publication with a circulation of 40,000 which has previously been distributed free
of charge among friends and
graduates of the university,"
university information officer
Jim Banham said  Wednesday.
"However," said Banham,
"this is the first time it has
been given to students."
He denied the appearance of
the newspaper was a reaction
to Ubyssey stories and editorials on the administration's
residence financial policy.
UBC director of information
services John Daly said an extra 5,000 copies of the newsletter were printed this time at
a cost of $30.
Ugly plot hatched
Screechers egged on by coffers
Screeching sorority pledges
were pelted with eggs by bystanders in the auditorium
A wild display of table-
thumping greeted the girls as
they were serenaded by sorority members after the annual Screech Day initiations.
Then the eggs hurtled out
of the crowd, splattering the
dresses of two dozen coeds.
The eggs were thrown by
two students, one of whom
has been identified by witnesses and may be charged in
student court next week.
"It was the most malicious
behaviour I've seen since I
came on campus," said vice-
president Bob Cruise, who
saw the display.
Some students yelled "go
back to Brock" at the pledges.
Others tried to lift the ends
of the benches on which the
pledges were standing in an
attempt to dislodge them.
Several sorority girls and
bystanders had their clothing
damaged by the eggs.
"We figure that there was
at least $60 worth of damage
done," said Cruise.
Cruise will lay a  complaint
about the incident before a
committee to be constituted by
Dick Hayes, cairman of the
student discipline committee
and law president.
He said he believes there is
enough evidence to charge the
suspect with conduct unbecoming a student and causing malicious damage.
Student court can levy fines
up to $25. Page 2

Abortions should be legalized for unmarried girls, a
New Democratic Party MLA
said Wednesday.
Dave Barrett, MLA for
Dewdney, told an audience at
International house:
"An unmarried girl has to
carry the burden of her sin for
nine months; then she drops it
at a foundling home for society
to care for."
He said a society which forbids abortions is crazy.

Barrett, an ex-prison social
worker, also criticized the
practice of sending innocent
up-country girls to Willingdon

Barrett was speaking on the
topic Our Society: Sane or Insane.
"I think we are all nuts in
an equally nutty society," he
The axiom for our society is
do anything but don't get
caught, he said.
"There is a false set of standards in our society," he said.
"The man who worries about
love and human compassion is

On Barry Goldwater he said:
"Barry's answer to all problems is absolute—drop a bomb.
He doesn't realize that they

Wives want quarters
Housing battle
awaits answers
Results of a questionnaire will determine further action
a committee of married students' wives will take in their
fight for more on-campus housing.
The questionnaire concerns-
married student's means and
needs in student housing, said
Helen Smickersgill, spokesman
for the group. It will be sent
to all married students.

AMS finance new married student housing through a self-
liquidating loan.
The Wives group was formed
after plans to build Totem
Park residences were revealed.
Married students felt that
residences should be built for
them before residences for
single students.
There are only 130 units
available to the more than
1,800 married students at UBC,
she said.
A brief, submitted to the
Board of Governors in the
summer was withdrawn when
the AMS offered its aid in the
Mrs. Smickersgill said the
Board's initial reaction to the
brief was not good.
She said the Board told them
married students had assumed
additional responsibility and
should find their own housing.
Many married students felt
the Board's attitude was neither fair nor realistic, said Mrs.
They withdrew their brief
to gather further evidence and
consider new solutions.
The wives hove been working
with AMS on this, and hope to
submit the completetd report
later this year.

The Engineers won in 1962, with a fraternity second,

Hardial Bains, organizer of

and huge classes. Students can

Every Saturday night 40 to
60 of the students and 5 or 10

The meetings, which now are
held in private homes feature
guest speakers and open discussion.

looking for a place on campus
to hold its meetings.

Columbia Cellulose Company, Limited is a progressive
expanding company with young management. It first
entered the British Columbia scene as a forest products
manufacturer in 1951 with the opening of the Prince
Rupert dissolving pulp mill.
Columbia Cellulose has also carried on sawmilling activities in the Arrow Lakes area in the south-central part of
the Province since 1952. In 1961 the company began
operation of a new 450,000 FBM per day sawmill fully
integrated with a 570-ton per day kraft pulp mill at
Castlegar, B.C.
The combined assets of all Divisions represent an investment of some $120 million and the combined operations
employ about 2100 persons.
The Company's Research and Development Division, now
being relocated in the Vancouver area, is one of the
most complete of its kind in Canada. It will employ some
25 professional and 30 supporting research personnel.
The Division's activities extend across the fields of development, applied and basic research.
Columbia Cellulose employs its own marketing organizations for the sale of both pulp and lumber products.
The head offices are located in the Burrard Building,
Vancouver, B.C. The Company is affiliated with Chemcell
(1963) Limited.
There are many opportunities at Columbia Cellulose
where progress depends on developing an ever-growing
team of people with technical skills in many fields. Each
year a number of graduates and undergraduates are
required in chemistry; electrical, chemical, mechanical
and civil engineering; and forestry. The work often
relates to research, process design, construction and all
aspects of production. A definite program is in operation to ensure that students will receive valuable training
in fields related to their studies.
When accepting employment following graduation, be
sure the organization you join offers a program of practical training which will assist you to advance. Columbia

Ah, corruption
Small wonder the outside world is ready to accuse
UBC students of abusing, corrupting and cheating on
the federal student loan fund.
The appalling black market in faculty parking stickers
demonstrates how callous students turn to crime without a qualm of conscience.
That students are willing to buy unused faculty
stickers from staff members who don't bring cars to

eyed, untrustworthy bunch.
And, crime of crimes, horrors of horrors, it shows
that students are (gasp) UNGRATEFUL.
A wise, kindly, and fatherly administration has
generously provided you wretched students with magnificent swamps and wallows for parking lots—some of
which are less than HALF A MILE from your classes.
But do you appreciate it?
You most certainly don't. You delve gleefully into a

Long range forecasters, dismal breed they are, call

November, December, January, February, March,
April and Elxams.   Yeeeccchhh.
It's the time of year which advances a better argument than all the Gordon Shrums and Patrick
McTaggard-Cowans in the world for year-round university operations.
It strikes us as damned illogical to spend uncomfortable summers in sweaty offices, blistering contraction
site, steamy mills and smoky refineries for the sake of
a lousy summer job — and then suffer a dismal winter
on chillblain campus.
Far, far better to spend July's green hours on an
inviting campus where the mornings are clear and
warm and the girls wear summer dresses instead of
ankle-lengtih raincoats.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
A girl friend of mine informed me, with some distaste, about the way she had
been handled in arranging
her Physical Education requirements. This girl lives a
fair distance from UBC and
has no lectures on Thursday
or Saturday.
When she spoke to a certain
feline of the Women's P.E.
faculty on arranging her
times she politely asked that
nothing be given on the two
aforementioned days.
The reply: "If you can't
adapt yourself to university
requirements I wonder that
you bother to come at all.
Why don't you go out and get
a job or get married." Word
for word, the complete facts.
This lady also required her
to recopy her WHOLE timetable into a vertical form
rather than the horizontal
with which she had been presented. Such an attitude, and
such belligerence made me
swear that if I had been told
a similar thing I would have
advised this cantankerous and
ill-mannered witch to take
to her broom!

I was very amazed to hear
Dr. Macdonald thank the students for their support during the "Back Mac" campaign
at the Cairn Ceremony.
Does Dr. Macdonald realize that the majority of students would willingly support him in his efforts to
make UBC a great university, if he would only keep
students informed on major
policy matters?
Does Dr. Macdonald realize that it is in his best interests to get to know the students, if for no other reason
than the fact that students
rapidly turn into Alumni who
are supposed to support their
university financially?

Marriage anyone?
by Wulfing von Schleinitz
That old custom way back when
Today we will look at an
old custom. Students all face
the telescreen.
Once upon a time there was
an institution called marriage.
The roots of this institution
in the Western World went
back to the earliest times but
crystallized out under the influence of the Christian
Marriage was for the purpose of procreation only. To
obtain pleasure during the
sexual act was considered
wicked and sinful.

Young people were to be

about the so-called "facts of
Boys and girls had to remain chaste and virgins until
their marriage which must
have led to interesting situations on their wedding night
as neither party knew what
was going on or where to put
Naturally this was an extreme position never followed
by the majority of people,
which shows the hypocracy of
the members in that society as
almost everyone paid lip service to the ideal.
The restricted lease of one
male and one female on the
body of the other was theoretically quite sternly enforced.
•    •    •
If either party found the
other engaged in sexual intercourse with some other person, then the one committing
this act could be murdered
without the murderer receiving   any   severe   punishment.
In fact there was some sort of
belief that this was required
to salvage a mythical entity
called HONOUR.
On the other hand, some
groups thought it quite proper
to inflict lifelong torment on
a couple by forbidding what
was termed a "divorce".
The usual reasons given for
such hell on earth were those
of the sacredness of marriage
and answers to the effect that
the children would suffer.
•    •    •
Evidently the welfare of the
children was assured by giving them this early training
in the constant fighting and
back-stabbing to which humanity was so prone during
these dark ages.
Now we must admit the original economic and survival
advantages achieved by the institution of marriage, but
when technological advances
produced a healthier and happier life there were those who
thought it wise to preserve
misery by increasing the number of human bodies through
a ban on birth control devices
and knowledge.

The extra numbers, it was
thought, could always be used

Let's have facts
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In view of the recent controversy concerning expenditures for UBC Residences, the
Women of Fort Camp feel that
Dr. Macdonald's listing of
present housing and accommodation fees should be corrected. This will give the public a clearer picture of the
situation under discussion.

stated that the Women of Fort

that we too are paying $595

for a single room. The prices
that have been quoted in The

are converted army huts.

It should be stated, that in

A little learning ...
Editor, The Ubyssey:
After reading the letter
headed, "English Profs", I am
left wondering how "a Future
English Major" managed to
enter UBC straight from nursery school.
I would like to comment
on four points from that letter.
1. Administration's failure
—Today it seems that
every angry young man
must blame someone—
but never himself.
2. Instructors — self - centred, inefficient, incompetent. I only wish that
in 27 years, nine of
which have been spent
working the Western
hemisphere, I had gained
as much insight as this
3. Responsibility toward
the student—The responsibility of a high school
teacher is vastly different from that of an instructor—Based on three
years experience.
4. Student's Knowledge—
A wise man knows how
little he knows—a fool
knows as much as a student.
I think it is time that "a
Future English Major" took
stock of himself. Perhaps he
is the failure — the self-cen
tred, inefficient, incompetent,
who is not willing to assume
the responsibility of Education.

NDP Cuba  policy
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Last Friday one of your reporters indirectly quoted Ed
Northup, president of the
New Democratic Club, as saying that Cuba now has the
best government it has ever
had. This was part of his
reply to the question of members travelling to Cuba.
While this last question is
a matter of individual freedom' rather than anything
else, the policy of the New
Democratic Party on Cuba
needs some clarification.
Although there is little
question that the Castro government, as a popular dictatorship is preferable to Batista's unpopular dictatorship,
it nevertheless violates the
democratic ideals of the New
Democratic Party.
The following resolution
which was passed by the recent Convention of the B.C.
Young Democrats makes our
stand on Cuba quite clear:
this Convention go on record
as having high praise for the
basic    reform   introduced   in
Cuba following the revolution
of 1959; but as deploring the
refusal of the Cuban government   to  permit freedom   of
speech,  of  the   press   and   of
association and its refusal to
permit democratic elections."

$100 hide and seek
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The Student Communist
Club rejects the AMS attitude
of "wait and see" regarding
the impending fee hike.
Judge Clearihue's $100 hike
proposal is clearly a feeler to
test student reaction. If the
reaction is apathy, then, as
last year, a fee hike will be
forced upon us. "Wait and
see"  is a position of apathy.
AMS must make it clear to
government and administration that students will not
accept further increases; that
the solution to university finance is not to be found by
gouging students more, but
by making senior governments live up to their responsibilities.
AMS   must   give   students
leadership  on  this issue and
not just "wait and see".

'Family of eight lives
in muddy one-room hut'
The United Nations has done
little to reimburse Arab refugees from Palestine deprived
of their homes since 1948.
Some refugee camps are rivers of mud, with families of
eight living in eight by 12 foot
And those who try to improve their lot by getting a job
find UN aid to their family
cut off if they earn more than
$10 a month.
Those who want to make
their own way living outside
the camps find they are forbidden to leave.
These are the observations of
Neil Griggs, a second-year arts
student at UBC, who this summer took part in a YMCA training program for Arab youths in
several refugee camps.
Hatred of the Jews is very
strong among the refugees,
Griggs said. Educated Arabs
confine their hatred to Zionism.
But he sees no violence in
the near future because the
Arabs lack the unity needed to
attack Israel.
Most of the refugees lived in
Bedouin tents for 10 years after they had to leave Palestine
(now Israel).
In the last few years huts
have been built and sanitation
made quite tolerable—by Arab
standards—in the UN camps.
Griggs and two other Canadian students gave selected
refugee youths a leadership
program with a cultural, sports
and recreation emphasis.
They did this through interpreters:  "Arabic   is  an  impos
sible language," Griggs explained. "And only a few speak
a sort of pidgin English."
The three Canadians worked
in camps in the Gaza Strip (a
buffer between Israel and
Egypt), Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. They found camp conditions in all four areas identical.
The need for their leadership
program was critical; youth
have nothing to do in the camps
after UN schooling ceases in
grade eight.
Now some of the young
Arabs are building sewers for
the camps—which is a revolutionary idea as in past the attitude was "let the UN do it."
Griggs found the adult refugees  very  suspicious of the

Canadians, or any outsiders, although they were trusted more
than UN people.

not had a fair deal since 1948."

Fun and games
in intramurals
Have fun, get some healthy
exercise and spend no money
—that's the theme of this
year's excellent intramural
This year the AMS has assumed both the financial burden of the men's intramural
system and control over its organization.
For the men there will be
26 sports in which members of
any group belonging to the
AMS can participate. On the
women's side, 11 different activities are offered.
There are no fees at all
charged for those wishing to
participate in the women's program. In the men's fees are
charged only for bowling and
golf which are both run outside of the actual program itself.
In past years in the men's
program any group participating in intramurals had to pay
$7.50 for each team entered.
• • •
Norm Olenick, who is doing
post graduate studies in physical education, is the program's
new director. In the past summer Olenick, and faculty intramural advisor Dr. Ramsay
worked  to  organize  the  pro
gram before it got under way.
So far only two problems
have arisen. The first is how
to schedule everybody into the
small amount of time that various athletic facilities are available for intramural use. Finding enough officials is the
second problem and a growing
one as more and more teams
are being entered into the program.
•    •    •
The men's and women's programs are run separately but
work together on a limited
basis to cooperate in sharing
available time for use of sports
Within the over all intramural system there are over
6,000 students involved in the
various activities. And, although most of the activities
are athletic right now, Olenick
plans to institute from five to
10 more non-athletic activities
to attract an even greater number of people and offer more
variety to those participating
Last year the Ramblers won
the men's intramural over-all
championship for the second
time in four years.
Puck Birds
Bob's call
When the Bird call for hockey players echoed across the
campus, 75 students answered.
Head coach Dr. Robert Hindmarch called the first practice
on Monday. So that there
wouldn't be too much confusion and for the benefit of the
players themselves, Dr. Hindmarch divided the prospects
into three groups. Two groups
will practice every day — each
one having an hour and a half
of ice time.
• •    •
"Because there are so many
prospective players and so
that I can have a good look at
every individual, I found it
necessary to divide the players into groups," Dr. Hindmarch said.
"We are having two teams
this year, a Junior Varsity and
a Varsity, but every player
will get a chance to make the
Varsity team," he added.
The Junior Varsity team
will be coached by Ray Gould
and will play approximately
30 games.
• •   *
The Varsity team will play
approximately 25 games, some
of which will be played against
the University of Denver and
Michigan State, considered to
be two of the best collegiate
hockey teams in the world.
However, UBC will be greatly strengthened this year with
the addition of five players
who played with last year's
Canadian Olympic team in
Innsbruck, Austria. Ken Broderick, Al McLean, Barry McKenzie, Bob Forhan and Gary
Dineen will provide the opposition with plenty of trouble.
PORTLAND STATE COLLEGE will be watching T'Bird halfback Bob Sweet closely in game this Saturday at Varsity
stadium. The club's leading rusher, he has also developed
into a top pass receiver.

Follow these 8 Rules
and   you'll get a great
Natural Shoulder Suit
1. Leave the girl-friend at home.
She doesn't know a thing about
men's suits.
2. Check for hand tailoring, not just
round the buttonholes,
under the collar, too.
3. Remember, a suit is an investment —
your appearance helps you
to success.
4. Walk around in it for a while, as you
would with a new pair of shoes.
5. An ill-fitting suit is not a bargain!
A few extra dollars makes
real sense.
6. Do the shoulders sit naturally?
Or do they bunch or hang down.
7. If the salesman is smiling, fine.
If he isn't, forget it.
8. Look yourself over. Is it comfortable ?
Does it make you feel good,
then buy it!
