Ubyssey 'Council Reporter
UBC's Alma Mater Society
student council is ahead of
parliament in both hours of
session and social legislation.
Council Monday night
passed a motion calling for
discussion to end at 11 p.m.
A motion must be passed
every half hour to keep proceedings going after that.
Parliament always ends for
the night at 10.
One dissenter during debate on the motion was AMS
co-ordinator Graeme Vance.
"If two-thirds of the councillors are that tired, one motion to adjourn would be
simpler," he said.
As well as deciding to work
later than higher level government, council learned
Monday night it is ahead of
national political parties in
some social issues.
"We are just a little ahead
of the political parties in see
ing and talking about students' economic and social
problem^," said local Canadian Union of Students chairman Ed Lavalle.
He said Montreal Liberal
MP John CTurner said at the
recent CUS congress in Len-
noxville, Quebec, that free
education will probably become necessary.
Progressive Conservative
George Hees also accepted
the principle of free education, he said.

in organizing the fight against UBC's rising enrolment fees.

second vice-president Peter
Braund co-chairman of an Education Action Committee program.
The program was approved
last September at the Canadian
Union of Students congress at
Lennoxville, Quebec. UBC's
EAP committee will work toward implementing the concepts approved by the congress,
and adopted by council Monday night.
These concepts were listed
by local CUS chairman Ed
Lavalle, as:
• Abolition of social and
financial barriers to post-
secondary education;
• Implementation of this by
demonstrations, studies of
social and economic factors,
application of political pressure, accelerated high school
liaison programs, student participation in social welfare
program conferences on the
program, and maximum utilization of public and private
sectors of university finance;
• And sponsorship of a National Student Day Oct. 27.
The EAP committee was told
to return to council next Monday with a detailed program of
action and a tentative budget.
Discussing the establishment
of the EAP committee, Lavalle
pointed out the National Student Day would occur during
the conference of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada at Vancouver's Bayshore Inn, Oct. 26 to
"We will have a most receptive and informed audience for
^ny demonstration," Lavalle
The AUCC is an administrative group. The impending

of higher education will be discussed at the conference.

The new system is designed
to provide better service and

Services provided by the
Centrex include direct dialing
for local, off-campus and longdistance calls, transferring
calls, and three-way conversations.
The system gives UBC its
own central exchange with the

Special Events chairman
Murray Farr said Monday his
program will be a campus
taste and pace setter designed
to stimulate students, faculty
and the community as a whole.
"Every time I just think
about the program I get excited," he said.
Highlight of the year will
be the Canadian premiere of

"The artistic highlights of
the year," Farr said, "will be

"That night we will present
the Eric K. Hawkins Dance
Company of New York, which
is the cream of the avant-
garde dancers. Their sets and
costumes are all designed by a
sculptor to combine motion,

"To see their performance is
a thrilling experience."
Another first for the Events
committee will be the Vancouver premiere of the Paul Winter Jazz Sextet March 12.
But throughout the year
there will be plays, lectures
and musical performances to
stimulate any student.

Cruise said the board went

Lavalle said at Lennoxville
several university delegations
— especially McGill and Toronto — said they had had
virtual riots about what they

"In the past, 25 per cent of
the students have paid both
fees to together," said AMS
second vice-president Peter
Braund Monday. "But this year
the figures are closer to 12 per
cent, and the difference is due
mainly to our campaign."
"This means the university
does not have the use of the
extra money, and this gives us
a good bargaining point," he
"Now all we need is five
thousand or so students out for
our rally at the cairn on Main
Mall at noon Wednesday, and
we'll really have something."
A university spokesman said
there is no way of verifying
the figures on student fee payment, and he refused to comment on the rest of the campaign.
The fee rally is the second
step in the AMS-backed Education Action Program to protest the recent fee increase.
The program started at the
beginning of the term with a
poster and speech campaign.
It will be held at the cairn

The AMS hopes to focus the
attention of the community on
the rising cost of education,
and on the plight of the students who cannot continue
their education because of the
fee increases.
"The Back Mac Campaign
was supposed to do something
about fees, but it seems to have
helped everyone but the people
who did the work, namely the
students," said Braund.
"When president John Macdonald first came to UBC he
was all in favor of keeping
fees down, but something has
happened in the meantime. He
doesn't seem to be giving us
any support at all now.
"We   negotiated   with   the
Board of Governors all summer, but they gave us no support, so we're going to take
stronger action," Braund said.
AMS first vice-president Bob
Cruise, in a speech made at
the beginning of the campaign,
said that the AMS regretted
doing this, but felt it had no
"There are many would-be
students in this province who
don't have the money to go to
university, and we hope to correct this situation," he said.
"Statistics show that five per
cent of all people in Canada
provide 75 per cent of the university students, and they are
the ones with money.
"The sons and daughers of
people who are not well off are
not going to university, and
there is no reason for this."

This week to be
This could be the week that will be.
It could be the week that will be remembered, that
is. Remembered as an important part of the long drive to
free education.
The fun began at 7 p.m. Monday night when Council
approved the establishment of an Education Action Program committee under AMS vice-presidents Robert
Cruise and Peter Braund with instructions for the committee  to  plan a  full  scale   comprehensive fee  fight.
This step represents a positive step forward, though
we'll have to wait till next week to see the whole picture.
Wednesday at noon in front of UBC's historic cairn,
the second phase of the week's fun runs with a rally
on fees open for all.
Here's the chance for student leaders to assess ground
roots support for action taken so far, and for students
to hear opinions on fees from student, faculty and
community leaders.
Specially pertinent to the latter, and giving more
hope that this-is-the-year for student leaders, is that
the Bladen Commission on the Financing of Higher
Education will bring down its report this October.
At least portions of the report will have the backing
of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, a decidedly  non-radical administration group.
And the report will give student leaders a chance to
react in the public eye to the problems of university
financing and therefore a chance to take one more step
toward seeing tuitionless education become a reality.
But students at UBC have a special responsibility
with regard to this report, and that is why attendance at
Wednesday's rally is a vital "must".
UBC students must become well-informed on the
issues involved, since the AUCC will meet to discuss the
report in Vancouver Oct. 26 to 29.
And each student must make up his rnind whether to
support or refuse to support any mass action proposals
put forward by UBC's councillors then.
For the eyes of the country will be on the activities
of this campus in those days less than a month away,
and a foolish act by the uninformed then could truly set
back the fight for free fees irreconcilably.
So for a chance to examine the issues now, come to
the cairn Wednesday noon.

A squinty look at the library
Have you even seen the reactions of students to two
dogs copulating on the library lawn? For a bunch of
people who talk about very
little other than sex, most
students seem reluctant to
stand and cheer when they
see free love being practised.
To be sure, the practitioners were dogs, but it is my
experience that most advocates of free love are.
If you
didn't see
the foregoing scene,
it shows
that you
aren't really
interested in
getting an
It shows
this   because
the   library is
the only place on this campus where you can get the
education   that   you're   sup-

posed to be getting out here.
And in case you haven't
gathered by now, this is plug-
the-library day. And the reason the library is getting this
plug is that it  needs it.
The library has had more
abuse heaped on it in the past
than any other five departments out here.
And they deserve every bit
of it. Not, mind you, because
they are incompetent, or un-
enthusiastic, or anything like
that, but because they have
not, in the past, yelled loudly enough for the things that
they need.
For the thousands of students who have gone almost
blind looking for books in the
stacks, or for the grad students who have not been aible
to read their long-awaited
diploma because of the hours
they have squinted at musty
tombs in the stygian chambers known as caralls, the
following fact will be small
consolation, but for you who

There are great stacks of
books sitting in dark, musty
rows, for lack of space. There
are shoeboxes that are full
of film that the librarian
claims contain every novel
published in English before
the 18th century.
There are books on free
love, love before marriage,
and contraception.
There are also things called faculty reading rooms that
are always empty, while
are students crying for
study space in the other parts
of the library. There are
profs who have kept books
for so long that the library
now orders a new copy of any
book they take out.
The library is a place that
is worth visiting. So when
you go over to pick up your
cards (they will not be mailed
out) take a look around the
rest of the place.

AMS fee fighters
reveal strategy
This brief outlines the concept of Escalation Strategy
and compares its merits with
those of what may be called
Immediate Confrontation
Strategy. Discussion of demands to be made is avoided
and strategy alone is dealt
Escalation Strategy resorts
to the use of every available
strategic device in order of
severity: from co-operative
consultation to diplomatic
pressure to outright confrontation. It may mean moving
from negotiating to demonstrating to boycotting to
withholding of second-term
• *    •
The escalation can be
broken off when student demands are satisfied, or suspended to give the administration a thinking period. It
can be resumed when demands remain unsatisfied,
when concessions are misinterpreted, or promises are
Basically, escalation uses
the potential threat of confrontation as a weapon before using confrontation itself.
The basic idea of Immediate Confrontation Strategy is
to confront the university administration with some form
of coercion through mass action at the beginning of the
first term.
• •    •
Two distinct strategies
have been proposed: withholding first-term fees, or
holding a student boycott at
the beginning of the first
The Escalation Strategy
and the Withholding First
Term Fees Strategy can be
compared in terms of the immediate reaction of the administration, impact on the
stand of the administration
with respect to the provincial
government, impact on future
relations with the administration, financial position of
the AMS, student participation, flexibility of strategy,
effect on public opinion and
repercussions of a failure.
• •    •
The Escalation Strategy
gives the administration a
chance to make concessions
during friendly negotiations.
There is a good chance that
such negotiations will be
fruitful, because the administration is basically not unsympathetic with our objectives.
The Withholding First
Term Fees Strategy leaves
little room for preceding
friendly negotiations and
more or less puts the ultimate
weapon at the beginning. It
forces the administration to
fight back with all the possible weapons at its disposal,
since it can hardly make concessions under such circumstances without losing face
over the issue of being in control of the campus.
The administration will
consequently make every effort to make us appear un
reasonable and even ridiculous. This danger might be
avoided by successfully applying a more diplomatic approach at the outset.
The Escalation Strategy
provides student negotiators
with the opportunity to manoeuvre the administration into a position where, at least
by implication, it will be
backing us in our pressuring
of the government. The Immediate Confrontation Strategy, on the other hand, will
force the administration
either to side with the government or pass the buck to
the government.
If the Escalation Strategy
is successful in its early
stages, it will avoid a straining of relations between the
administration and the AMS.
The Immediate Confrontation
Strategy cannot but alienate
the administration.
• •    •
Wihholding first term fees
also means withholding AMS
fees. The AMS would be cutting its own throat. On the
other hand, withholding second-term fees, which is the
last point of the Escalation
Strategy, will not leave the
AMS completely broke, since
it will have the fees from the
first term to operate with.
Most important of all are
strategies' chances of successfully inducing sufficient student participation.
The Escalation Strategy
provides the time and opportunities to build up student
enthusiasm. It provides opportunities for mass rallies
and for students to talk
about the issues among themselves. It gives enough time
for a snowballing effect to
fully exert itself and to reach
ultimately a sense of solidarity.
Adequate participation in
the withholding of first-term
fees is highly improbable.
There is no time to build up
mass enthusiasm on the campus, and printed matter received during the summer
holidays will not have a very
'enthusing" effect.
Students will fear the imposition of a late fine, even
if it seems that a majority of

their fees. Those who are to
receive scholarships and bursaries will be nervous about
the possibility of having
these grants suspended.

Even more important is
the fact that unless students
are firmly convinced that
they will be part of an overwhelming majority, they will
be afraid of ending up being
members of a minority that
can be effectively discriminated against by the administration in terms of late fines,
the removal of library privileges, refusal to give marks
for assignments, essays and
exams, eviction from classes,
eviction from reidences, etc.
Only a gradual buildup of
student spirit will assure the
feeling of solidarity and the

One of the outstanding features of the Escalation Strategy is its flexibility. If the
administration plays tricks on
us, the Escalation Stratey always permits us to use more
effective weapons or to
change our line of attack. In
the end, confrontation always
remains as its ultimate weapon. |

A boycott can be called any
time and the withholding of
second-term fees can be announced at any time, which
may be very useful in negotiations. The fact that the
withholding of second-term
fees would come up at a time
much closer to the determination of the 1966-67 fees than
any action at the beginning of
the first term is likely to give
it a much greater impact on
administration policy.
• •    •
Although there is a danger
of being too preoccupied with
the repercussions on public
opinion, it may nevertheless
be worth noting that the public is likely to regard the
withholding of second-term
fees as the climax of a movement based on sincere grievances rather than as a flamboyant stunt, since there is
time to propagandize the rationale of the movement beforehand.

Seven centuries of Greeks - how much longer?
Fraternal organizations in
universities have a history
dating back more than 700
They were first organized
in European universities
during the 13th century.
But they have existed in
North America for less than
200 years.
The first North American
fraternity, Phi Beta Kappa,
was founded in 1776. Today
it exists as an honorary
scholastic order.
Canadian universities have
had fraternal organizations
since 1870, and fraternities
have existed on our campus
since 1924.
The relationship of the
university to the fraternities,
as stated in the University
Act, is "to be at the discretion of the Senate".
The Senate many years
ago recognized fraternities
on this campus.
The Senate stipulates that
fraternities belong to a gov-

Future issues will examine student housing, religious and

This council, composed of all
15 campus fraternities, has
extensive affairs.
Although the IFC has the
power to amend its constitution — and does from time
to time — the Senate regards
it as an agreement or compact necessary to the continued existence of fraternities at UBC.
Today approximately seven percent of male students
belong to fraternities.

ship, athletic and  social relations.
The scholastic average of
fraternity men is 15 percent
higher than the all-men average for UBC.
Scholarship is placed on a
competitive basis, both within the organization and the
individual fraternity.
Only second year students
who have passed first year
are allowed to rush fraternities.
Each year the fraternities
at UBC compete for the
Housser Cup which is given
to the fraternity with the
highest scholastic average.
Most fraternities also provide a tutorial system with
older members giving assistance to younger members.
In athletics, the fraternities organized the UBC intramural competitions 25 years
Today, these competitions
include almost every undergraduate body on campus.

not only parties, but also
service projects such as help

You're slick and In — or out
Many students think fraternities are
characterized by rich, big-city types in Ivy-
League jackets, button-down shirts and
striped ties.
An engineer said, 'TThey all seem to be
sort of high and mighty. They are Fancy
Dan, big-city fops."
A icoed [from Kelowna, Education U,
said, "They are smooth socially, but didn't
seem to have much depth to them. They're
all city-slicker types."
City slickers they are. An Alpha Delta
said 90 per cent of his fraternity are
from Greater Vancouver high schools.
A Fiji said 70 per cent of his brothers
come from Vancouver. "But we have some
guys from Minneapolis and Seattle," he
A Ps!i U said, "Sixty-five per cent of us
are from the city—mostly from West Vancouver and Magee."
The Zeta Psi's are also city-dominated.
One said, "Most of us are from Shawnigan
Lake Boys' School, although we have quite
a few from Calgary."
Fraternity men gave many reasons for
the fact that their fraternities are dominated by city students.
For example, university entails fewer
expenses for city commuters, enabling
more city students to meet the high cost
of fraternity life.
Vancouver high-schoolers also are more
likely to learn from older friends of the
existence of frats and the advantages of
being  members.
"We come here and find our friends have
joined or are going to join frats," said a
Prince of Wales graduate.
The situation for up-country students is
radically different.
"I've been here for three years, but I
don't know the first thing about fraternities," said a student from  Trail.
A Kamloops Greek said, "I had a fairly
tough time getting in because none of the
members knew me."
And although one Kappa Sigma told The
Ubyssey his fraternity doesn't judge a
rushee's character by his appearance or
dress, another said, 'Vancouver guys know
how to dress and we base a lot of our
judgement on the way guys dress.
"If somebody wears out-of-it clothes,
we'll  ding him," he   admitted.

Fraternities Role on Campus
Dear Fellow Student:
This special insert in the Ubyssey
is twofold in purpose. In tiie first place,
it is intended to turther enhance our
efforts in seeking new members to
replace those who have recently
graduated. Secondly, it is hoped that
it will give you a greater insight into
the fraternity system as it exists at the
University of British Columbia.
A fraternity's prime responsibility
is to the University, but in addition
carries on a balanced program ot educational, social, and athletic activity.
All the fraternities have their own
homes where out - of - town
students may live in an excellent environment.
Invitation to membership
is a mutual arrangement.
You must like the group
and the group must like
you. Formal invitation is
extended after a period of
"rushing" which begins on
Monday, Sept. 27th, and
which enables the students
and the fraternities to find
where they would best fit.
However, before a student
can participate in the formal rush period he must
first register in the AMS.
office. This registration
period runs from Monday, Sept. 13th,
until Friday, Sept. 24th.
After you have registered for
rushing, individual members of the
fraternities you have selected to rush

Value of Fraternities
By Colonel Harry T. Logan, B.A. (McGill),
M.A. (Oxon), L.L.D. (U.B.C.) PSI Upsilon '07.
Fraternities are University Societies whose active members are undergraduates and whose alumni are
former members of the active chapter.
The very basis of their existence, in
origin and in tradition, is the close
friendship of members exercised
throughout their undergraduate life,
in the service of their Alma Mater.
Each branch or chapter ot a fraternity is a center of undergraduate
fellowship.   In   the   chapter   house.

The Meaning of Rush
Rush! This is a word you will be
hearing many times during the next
few weeks. Rush is simply that time
of year when UBC's 15 fraternities
attempt to pledge new members. The
rush period consists of two separate
but important parts. First is the signing of rush applications in the A.M.S.
Office, second is the dozen days of
functions during which you — the
rushee — will meet the actives of the
fraternities and the actives will meet

Rush Application is in no
way a contract; it merely
indicates your interest.
From then on it becomes
the job ot the fraternities to
contact you and to introduce you to UBC's Greek
system. Rush functions are
informal and fun—the food
is always good, the conversation can be on all topics,
and there are often well
known people from Vancouver's business, entertainment, and sports world
for the rushees to meet.
members may relax in a home atmosphere and review at leisure and at
will every aspect of lite inside and
outside the University. At its best, a
chapter is the student body in miniature, embracing in its active membership students of varying abilities
drawn from various faculties and
schools, and usually including at least
some leaders in one or other of the
many branches of student organization.
I maintain that when such a chapter comes into being and is true to its
ideals, no other form that has been
devised for social living, in our Canadian Universities, affords students a
more favourable education; for form-

tor contributing to the current life ot
their University.
Fraternities, at their best, aim at
the highest in all aspects of undergraduate life. More than ever before
university graduates are being pressed into positions of responsibilities
and leadership. No campus institution has a greater potential for leadership training than the day to day
association in fraternity life.
- A Message From the IFC President
Michael Hughes
Inter Fraternity Council
The span of a college career is
alarmingly short, as I am only just
beginning to discover. The freshman entering University is about
to be exposed to an environment
so powerfully stimulating and po
tentially productive that to waste
any portion of it is a tragedy. If a
fraternity can speed the process of
evaluation and assimilation of the
vast number of impressions to which
this freshman is subjected, and I
strongly believe that it can, then,
in my opinion, ample justification
of the fraternity system exists.
To my way of thinking, a very
important part of any college career, is one's participation in extracurricular activities. The fraternity

to participate in social, athletic, and

Is is almost impossible to find this
type of an organization for the student anywhere else but in the fraternity system.
On this campus there are fifteen
distinct and individual fraternities,
each with certain qualities and characteristics all their own. As a group

Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, founded in 1832, has chapters at many leading universities across the continent.
The B.C. chapter, which was established in 1926. has built up a strong
alumni organization. Alpha Delta Phi
advocates full participation in all
fields of endeavor—The Housser Cup
(symbolic of the best all around fraternity), intramural athletics, the coveted Song Fest Trophy and a high
scholastic standing are indicative of
the chapter's success. A literary and
social program highlighted by guest
speakers, Friday night seminars, intellectual debates. The Spring Formal
and the bi-annual "International" with
our Washington Chapter round off
the year's activities.
Alpha Tau Omega was founded
in Richmond, Virginia, in 1865. Since
feUi its foundina A.T.O. has grown to 120
™j£r chapters throughout North America.
The fraternity is especially noted for
introducing Help Week into the Greek
system, for establishing a placement
service for graduating students, and
for instigating an academic program
which led A.T.O. to the highest scholastic standing of any international
fraternity last year.
The local chapter of Alpha Tau
Omega has a well rounded and organized social, sports, and scholarship program. The fraternity emphasizes participation and friendship.
A.T.O. also has an active Alumni and
parents' group.
Beta Theta Pi is one of the largest
international fraternities at UBC. We
strive to unite men of diverse interests
and backgrounds in the common bond
of fraternity. Our only criterion for
membership is the pursuit of excellence in all facets of student life. We
follow the traditional fraternity social
and athletic programs which include
pledge parties, a Spring formal, ex
changes, and all intramural sports.
These events are supplemented with
seminars, guest speakers, chapter retreats and informal song sessions.
The last week-end in February
promises to be one of our highlights
for the coming year as we are hosting
the largest Beta gathering outside of
the national convention. Over five
hundred Betas from nine chapters in
the Pacific Northwest will gather at
the Vancouver Hotel for our annual
Songfest and Conclave. Guests from
Washington, Idaho, and Oregon will
compete for prizes in athletics, general achievement, scholarship and
Although fraternity life occasionally can be hectic and time consuming, we continue to hold academic
achievement to be the most important
goal of any student.
One of the "Big Three" international fraternities, Deke was established at U.B.C. in 1949.
Our chapter is primarily a social
group. Last year our social calendar
included numerous parties, mixers,
and a stag. These functions are not
restricted to members only; friends are
always  welcome,  as  those   rushees
already familiar with Deke will know.
The toboggan party, which wound up
at the brothers' cabin on Mt. Seymour,
and the formal were the last year's
highlights. The Spring Tea, attended
by parents and neighbors was very
successful, thanks to our Mother's
On a more serious bent, speakers
from the University or the business
world are invited from time to time to
address our meetings .
By joining Deke, one enlarges his
circle of friends, but membership is
not meant to impede the individual's
faculty, club, or sports activities. The
chapter always welcomes men who,
having experience in these and other
spheres, can aid in conducting its

is the D.U. byword, a D.U. in every-

* *A^  The B.C. chapter has participated en-
ms,    ergetically in intramural sports, placing second among the fraternities for
the past seven years. In campus acti
vities D.U. has ranked high, having
had a number of men on student council. The past year's accomplishments
included a third place finish in Song
Fest, much improved scholarship, and
a new house.
D.U. is an old and large fraternity
having six Canadian and 80 American chapters spread across the conti
nent. It is a non-secret and non-discriminatory fraternity.
D.U. has its share of social life
with a number of exchanges and parties, including the Apache, Pledge
parties, Crock party, and the Formal.
Our principles: The promotion of
friendship, the development of character, the diffusion of a liberal culture
and the advancement of justice.
Kappa Sigma was started at Charlottesville, Va. in 1869 and has grown
ij$$ to   over   80,000   members   scattered
*     through 138 chapters in North America. This fact enables the national to
make $2,000.00 in scholarships available to each chapter. The local chapter strives for social enjoyment, sports
participation and close brotherhood.
Such social events as pledge parties,
sorority pledge breakfast, nurse and
sorority exchanges, the spring formal,
pre and post exam bashes constitute
the Social Calendar. All intramural
sports are played, notably basketball,
football, and softball. The house erected on Fraternity Row during 1960 is
a fitting tribute to the strong alumni
group and the mother's auxiliary who
have always worked in close harmony with the active chapter.
Phi Delta Theta was founded on
Dec. 26, 1848 at Miami University,
Ohio. To this date there are 120 active
chapters representing a widely distributed brotherhood throughout the
United States and Canada. The local
chapter of the Phi Delta Theta was
founded in 1930 and now has 700 local
The present house on Fraternity
Row was built in 1952. This fall a $50,-
000.00 addition will provide Phi Delta
Theta with one of the finest fraternity

1964-65 proved to be a very successful year for Phi Delta Theta. On
the athletic field Phi Delta Theta regained renown with the winning of

Alpha Iota chapter of Phi Kappa
Pi, the only all-Canadian fraternity
was established in 1919, .the first fraternal organization to take root here.
Playing a significant role in University
affairs right from the beginning, it is
a matter of some pride to the chapter
that, with the exception of one, all the
organizers of the Great Trek of 1922
were men of Alpha Iota. In keeping
with the Canadian spirit of Phi Kappa
Pi, members later to build an illustrious future in our nation's public life
include Sherwood Lett, Arthur Lord,
Gordon Scott, and Arthur Laing. Pre
sent members endeavour to fulfill this
period of fraternity life by participation in intramural sports and in the
annual Greek Societies' Song Fest. Phi
Kappa Pi is now in the process of
constructing a new house on fraternity row which should be completed
by January of 1966.
The encouragement of good
scholarship, the advancement of cultural and intellectual interests and the
development of fine character are the
objectives of Phi Kappa Sigma. These
goals are further augumented by the
Phi Kap's participation in inter-fraternity activities, student government,
and scholastic competition.
Besides encouraging scholastic
achievement and athletic participation, the fraternity has a full social
program. This begins with the Foun
der's Day Celebration in early October and comes to a climax in late
February with the Black and Gold
Since coming to U.B.C. in 1955, the
Phi Kap's have made an honest attempt to become the "Friendliest Fraternity on Campus".
Psi Upsilon stands for high ideals,
excellence of achievement, and bro-
^ therhood. The Charter members chose
the "Rhodes Ideal" of brotherhood,
scholarship, and leadership for the
fraternity and since 1833 the Ideal
has been successfully followed.
Psi U activities  encompass  the
whole of campus life. Last year the
fraternity was active in intramural
sports, maintained a high scholarship
average and many brothers were active on A.M.S. committees, undergraduate society executives and in campus clubs.
The chapter follows an extensive
social calendar of parties, exchanges,
banquets, and the annual Formal.
Psi U also wishes to remain as a
medium-sized fraternity, as excellence
does not come from numbers, but from
quality and unity. We are also fortunate in having a large and active
alumni association.
Sigma Chi is the largest International Fraternity at U.B.C. Both locally
[and internationally, Sigma Chi stresses scholastic achievement. Sigma Chi
also emphasizes active participation
in athletics, campus, and social activities. The highlight of our social season is the Sweetheart Ball where we
crown the most famous of all campus
queens, the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.

Mardi Gras
Mardi Gras, one of Vancouver's
largest annual charity balls, is sponsored by the Greek Letter Societies
of the University of British Columbia
and staged for the purpose of raising
money for worthwhile and needy
charities. Started in 1939, it has now
become the largest costume ball in
the city.
Donations have increased steadily
each year:
From $5,400.00 in 1962;
To    7,300.00 in 1963;
(To 10,400.00 in 1964;

Intra Murals
One of the integral parts of university life is athletics. However, not
everyone on this campus is able to
participate on a representative university team.
This fact was recognized many years
ago, and the fraternities, realizing
this shortcoming, and in the interests
of physical fitness and group participation, initiated an Intramural
Sports Program. This program was
run entirely by the fraternities until
such time as numerous other
groups on the campus realized the
benefit of this activity and, as such,
through the co-operation of the
School of Physical Education, the
programe was broadened to include
all factions of the university who
wished to participate.
This program which is now under
the joint jurisdiction of the A.M.S.
and the School of Physical Education
and Recreation, has grown to become
one of the top Intramural systems in
North America. With the addition of
seven-aside rugby and field hockey,
there will be twenty-seven activities
offered to UBC students this year.
iThis expanded program is still
keenly contested by the fraternities,
for which the I.F.C. awards an annual trophy to the fraternity obtaining the most points in intramural
Realizing the benefits of this program and the tradition behind this

The prime objective of this program has been felt a thousand times

University of British Columbia share
in many charitable and community
activities throughout the academic
Early in the fall terra, one Sunday is designated as Pledge Help Day
when the new pledges of the sororities and fraternities go throughout
the city cleaning public service and
community centres, entertaining crippled children and old age pensioners.
A number of orphans' parties, on
Halloween and at Christmas, are held
by different fraternities. The children
are usually transported to the fraternity houses and are entertained
with games, prizes, gifts, and, of
course, on Halloween, with fireworks.
It's fun for everyone, not only for
the children.
The young men of the UBC fraternities volunteer their time
and effort to help clean community
centres when asked, and the United
Appeal was aided greatly by the
volunteer canvassers from the Greek
letter societies.
Without a doubt, the largest philanthropic donation by the Greeks has
been the money raised each year at
Mardi Gras. For the past two years,
the largest donations given to the
Muscular Dystrophy Research Foundation have been the cheques received from the Greeks. This money
is used for research being conducted
on the UBC campus in an effort to
find the cause, cure, and early detection methods for this crippling disease. Mardi Gras is always fun and,
at the same time, results in a great
deal of good.
These and other worthwhile activities give the fraternities an opportunity to help their community and,
also, to add to the general all-round
academic and social programs of their
The Social Side
Fraternities are said to be primarily social—and every fraternity at
UBC lives up to this reputation.
Members enjoy a full range of social
activities planned in order not to interfere with one's studies. Exchanges
with sororities, with student nurses
from St. Paul and V.G.H., weekend
parties, post game dances, and costume parties exclusive to each fraternity run every weekend prior to
exam time.
The Spring term is the open season
for fraternity parties at UBC with
initiation of the fall pledges, and preparation for Mardi Gras  and  Song
fest. Mardi Gras is one full week of
fraternity functions: the Pep Rally
in the gym, the King Candidate contest, the Cake Auction, and the grand
finale, the Mardi Gras Costume Ball
at the Commodore.
Each fraternity climaxes its social
year with an elegant formal, each a
little better than the previous one.
Some say fraternities may not be
necessary at UBC. However, fraternities keep alive the elegance, the
tradition, and the ever-so-necessary
spirit through their social functions—
so often difficult to find in a university the size of UBC.
Larger or Smaller Fraternities?
Large Fraternities range in size
from 70 to 150 members. Consequently, they have large houses located
on the campus.
The large fraternity offers a
greater range of activities for members in athletics, student government,
I.F.C, and other student affairs. For
example, in intramural sports each
large fraternity can—and does—-enter several teams in every sport.
The members of the large fraternity have social advantages, too.
They can live and entertain on campus in the splendor of the fraternity house, park their cars on a clean,
paved lot — instead of slogging
through the swamps of "C" lot, and,
because of larger budgets, members
enjoy the swingingest parties on campus.
Fraternity  Awards
The Inter Fraternity Council sponsors a series of awards which are
presented annually—at Songfest—to
fraternities which show themselves
to be outstanding in one or more of
the fields of inter-fraternity competition. These awards include:
There are two athletic trophies
awarded each year. One is given to
the larger fraternity groups, the other
to the smlaller fraternity groups.
Sports included are: football, basketball, hockey, curling, swimming,
soccer, golf, volley ball, baseball,
lacrosse, and track and  field.
This is the scholarship trophy,
awarded to the fraternity whose
brothers achieve the highest overall
scholastic standing. Fraternity scholastic averages have regularly exceeded the UBC all-men's average.
The Songfest Trophy is awarded
to the winner of the Inter Fraternity
Choral Competition held annually at
the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Songfest evening is truly an awards' night
—not only for fraternities and sororities, but it is also the night on which
the funds raised during Mardi Gras
are donated to charity. Last year this
amounted to $13,500.00.
The Housser Cup is presented annually to the outstanding over-all fraternity on campus. The areas of
competition include:
1. Fraternity  Scholastic Averages.
2. Intramural Athletics.
3. Social Activities.
4. Community Service.
Competition for the Housser Cup is
especially keen, since it is the most
sought after of the inter-fraternity
The smaller-Sized fraternity has a
limited membership of 20 to 60
brothers. Such fraternities are in the
unique position of benefiting from
diversified membership without the
impersonality which can arise from
having too large a membership.
By virtue of their size, small fraternities are not able to participate
in activities on the same scale as the
large fraternities, yet they enjoy
closer unity which can only be
achieved in a smaller organization.
Small fraternities participate in a
full program of athletics, literary,
cnaritable, and social events. In athletics, although competition in every

do enter those events where there is

If dinged, youVe up the Greek
Is the fraternity way of
life all Greek to you?
Do you want to know if
you are eligible to join one
of UBC's 15 fraternities?
How do you go about joining, and how much will it
Here are the answers supplied by Mike Hughes, head
of Inter-Fraternity Council,
the governing body of fraternities.
Hughes said in an interview Monday that any male
student registered in second
year or above is eligible to
join a fraternity.
However, he said, the individual fraternities pledge
students in the fall, but most
stipulate that the pledges
pass their Christmas exams
before they become full-
fledged members.
The fraternities are holding their fall rush until Friday.
During this week, any interested students may sign
up at the Alma Mater
Society office in Brock Hall.
They must sign to rush
three fraternities, and may
rush six.
Each day, the names are
forwarded to the fraternities
who contact the prospective
members and invite them to
The first function,   which
is non-alcoholic, allows the
students to see the fraternity
members and the members
to meet the rushees.
"It is really just a chance
for the fraternity and the
rushee to look each other
over," Hughes said.
After the first function the
fraternity holds what is
known as a ding session. In
this, the members discuss the
merits of each rushee and
select those who will be invited to the second function.
The same procedure is
used after the second function, and after the third at
which the fraternity decides
which rushees to submit bids
On Wed., Oct. 13, all the
rushees meet and open envelopes containing bids from
the fraternities.
They then select the fraternity  of their  choice.
Hughes said that fraternities have an average of 55
members, although many are
smaller and some larger.
The only fraternity which
sets qualifications other than
personal qualities and academic standing is Sigma Phi
Delta, which has only engineers as members.
Less than half the fraternities have on-campus houses;
the    others    use    renovated
homes in the university area.
"The people on-campus
definitely have the advantage, especially in gaining
new members," Hughes said.
"It is ideal accommodation close to classes and close
to on-campus  social life."
He said the average cost
of joining a Greek letter
society is between $100 and
$110 per year.
Hughes, who was president of Phi Delta Theta fraternity, said the fraternity
life offers many advantages
to students.
"It offers the individual
an outlet on campus that he
couldn't find anywhere else,"
he said.
"You associate with individuals of similar tastes, and
make several lasting friendships as well as many acquaintances."
Hughes said the fraternity
gives a student the opportunity to participate in athletics and to develop leadership qualities.
Some fraternities also offer
a scholarship trophy with a
monetary prize for their top
students, and all fraternities
compete for the Housser Cup
— the award given to the
chapter with the highest
Expose: who discriminates?
the  sorority  line-up
Frat flat
Three years ago UBC's
Senate barred fraternities
practicing racial discrimination from this campus.
Two of three unnamed
fraternities said to have discriminate have since fallen
in line, says Dr. Peter Lusz-
tig, liaison man between the
administration and Inter-
Fraternity Council.
Lusztig said: "Asians or
Negroes who rush invariably
end up in a fraternity of
some sort—but the question,
is, is it their first choice, or
their fourth or fifth choice?"
"Pictures of pledges are
circulated to all the chapters,
and if a fraternity has a high
percentage of southern U.S.
membership no Negro photo
gets by."
IFC public relations officer Larry Herbert said international    affiliation    pro
vides    a    fraternity    with
money to build a frat house.
"But university policy forbids fraternities to build on
campus if they discriminate
on racial or religious
grounds," said Lusztig.
Herbert told The Ubyssey's

It's cheaper to live in a
fraternity house than either
the Totem Park or Lower

Living in a fraternity house
costs a member approximate
ly $500 a year plus membership fee, about $100.
Fort and Acadia run to
$507.50 each, and Totem Park
and Lower Mall cost $630
for a single room with board
for the whole year.

Comfort and companionship, accommodation and athletics — these are some of the reasons UBC men join
fraternities and live in fraternity  houses.
"Sitting on a comfortable couch with a cool drink
in front of me and good music playing beats Fort Camp,"
said one frat man.
"Accommodation is cheaper and better than that
provided by the university," he said.
"Men from out of town have a homey place to take
their girls, and they can have a party for one quarter
the cost of having  it anywhere else."
He said fraternity houses were convenient places
to spend the night while travelling.
Members can get free room and board at chapters
on other campuses in the U.S. and Canada.

are the name of the president, the text of the constitu-
ion, their initiation, and why
they are so secretive.
Who knows, the guy sitting next to you may be president of Phi Gamma Delta.
Another fraternity member thought the social aspect was a  reason men  joined.
"There are a lot of interesting discussions and some
get pretty hot because the guys have different backgrounds and different points of view," he said.
"But you meet people of similar interests and
tastes," he added. "It's easy to make friends."
Another fraternity man said there was more opportunity for athletics in fraternities than in most other
clubs on campus.
"We have intra-mural athletics for those who can't
make the UBC team," he said.
A frat man who lives at home summed up the
reasons for joining a fraternity.
"It gives me a place to go; somewhere I belong,"
he said.

There seems to be a tendency, among the anti-
frat crowd, to criticize fraternities in terms of
their existence in some sort of vacuum. They
are always fair game and their detractors seldom
relate the fact of what they are to anything outside this particular time or place.

been hurt in any way.
Regardless, there is always something that is
just the thing for somebody. The establishment
of fraternities on campus can't possibly do anybody any harm and at the same time may do
some _people some good.
There lies, at the base of all this, the simple
fact that the world is full of joiners and that
man seems to get a kick out of belonging.
Motivation is unimportant. Does the Shriner
really get excited about raising funds for Crippled
Children, or is he primarily interested in parading in outlandish costumes and being called
Grand Omnipotent Plenipotentiary of the Second
Order? Who knows, and, besides, who cares?
The small college manifests this joining bug in
its own way. The football team, the newspaper,
the drama society, the jazz society, the camera
club, the young liberals, conservatives, communists and christians—all are essentially fraternities.
They separately engage in business and social
activities within their particular sphere, and individual members develop close ties of friendship with each other.
There is a central meeting place, and the rules
of entry are simply proficiency in the group's
So, taking criticism of fraternities out of the
vacuum, and comparing fraternity with non-
fraternity universities, it appears there is not
really a hell of a lot of difference. The mood is
the same, the academic grind is also the same,
and neither one school nor the other displays
symptoms of a bad social disease.
Which leads to the obvious conclusion that
fraternities are totally peripheral and unimportant in the life of the university as a whole.
So, then, why all this comment and controversy?
(There is maybe a small difference between the
small-school "fraternity" and the Greek element
as it's known here. The joiners at the smaller
college are members of organizations essentially
based on some sort of specific activity.
In fact, there is no scarcity of that type of
group even on the campus that already has
fraternities as such. Any particular faculty or
school (and let's throw in engineers and architects as the obvious examples) can and does become very much a fraternity.
What is The Ubyssey if not a fraternity? The
elements are all there with the special added
attraction of participation in a concrete, valid
And the product is often superior. Loyola College in Montreal, with a student body of less
than 2,000, has the wildest proliferation of societies, groups and clubs ever witnessed on a
non-fraternity campus.
But its drama society produces what is probably the best English theatre in Montreal; its
jazz society has concerts which feature top art-
its rarely seen at other Canadian schools; its radio
club has established a system unequalled by any
univerity of the same size.
Sure, these are cliques, but cliques with a
Yet, the number of such organizations indicate their formation is inevitable, whether or not
fraternities are present on campus.
The only valid criticism of fraternities lies back
in the vacuum—and the point seems to be that
they have no basis for existence save an arbitrary grouping of people for the sake of arbitrarily grouping people.
And if there are those who want to join, is
that bad?
mardi gras
A Greek by any other name is a clique
What's all this crap about
Non-frat people scorn
them, frat people love them,
each considers the other
scum of the earth — and the
non-frats are more guilty of
(blatant, unfounded scorn
than the frats.
A frat is nothing more
than a social group which
calls itself a social group,
with a few minor pretensions beyond that.
As   such,   it   has   more
honesty than other campus
social groups which masquerade as something else.
A kid comes to campus,
with his high-school friends
or without them, and adjusts
his life to the university's
He retains a circle of
1 friends, old ones or new ones.
It's necessary to the well-
being of the social animal—
people to talk with during,
after and about lectures,
people to entertain with, to
play with, people to approve
of him as a group member
and receive his approval.
There are several ways to
find oneself a group, all
really the same.
One joins a club, becomes
very active or merely supporting. It's the active people
we're talking about.
Their bond with others is
through the recreational or
educational facility offered
by the club, and the social
order is all people sharing
that interest.
Soon, the activity becomes
secondary to the social contact in the operative in-
group's scheme of values.
Yet the activity is still continued and relished because
it is the rationale of keeping
the structure in the first
place, and provides an easy-
to-justify outlet.
In the same grouping are
all clubs chartered under
UCC; the tables reserved for,
say, theatre people in auditorium cafe; the whole AMS
committee and the undergrad
society structure; and athletic teams.
Others satisfy their social
appetites wth a group of
friends who all ride home
together, study together, eat
These people keep a par

lounge to sit in, a particular
part of the cafeteria is theirs,
and they have common car-
It's called having a group
of friends, without the exterior bond of club activities.
Both these sorts of groups
are proper in-groups — each
little segment is an exclusive
clique, with standards of admission  for outsiders and a

Ubyssey's Page Friday. Here he gives
his views on fraternities at U.B.C.
social pecking order unknown to outsiders.
The university is too big
for one's study field to provide a social group, but for
small exceptions in tiny
faculties, theatre or architecture.
That's why there's such a
proliferation of clubs, and
why the AMS is proportionately so much richer, more
powerful than counterparts
at smaller schools.
The fraternity differs from
the inclusive friendly gaggle
because it sets its membership standards on paper,
openly inviting bids  to  belong.
The new member, on payment of his dues, has immediate access to the communal facilities of the house,
plus entry to all house activities.
The contact he makes may
be socially, academically or
commercially valuable—they
are often contacts he wouldn't make anywhere else, and
just as often contacts he already has.
The frat is like any other
social clique, perhaps a little
larger than most. It has its
own little internal cliques,
following the same pattern
as the whole campus.
It can farily be called
equivalent to a car-pool.
The frat just has the presence to say so, and makes
social contact the only reason for its existence — once
you cut away the filmy wrappings about academic stimulation and eternal brotherhood.
So that's it — frat is another name for clique, a
clique you buy into upon approval instead of one you
socialize into.
But it doesn't pretend to
be anything else. Tuesday, September 21, 1965

aroused by revolutions around
the world.
International speakers, including French philosopher
Jean-Paul Sartre, will lead the
talks at the University of Toronto.
Their material will be wired

CUP news
To the uninitiated this dateline means yet another hot
story emanating from this western scene of action is being
avidly read in campus papers
across the country.
CUP stands for Canadian
University Press.
The stated aims of CUP are
to provide a national press service to Canadian university
newspapers and to increase
students' knowledge of Canada
as a whole, and in particular
their knowledge of students
activities across the nation.
The association also aims to
create an opportunity for student journalists to improve
standards of student journalism.
How are these things accomplished?
Firstly, by regular exchange
of campus papers between the
member publications, and
secondly, by press dispatches
sent to member papers from
a central bureau in Ottawa,
where a small, full-time staff
is maintained.
But how does all this concern the average Joe Student?
He has a vested interest,
since the Ubyssey, through ?
subsidy from the Alma Mater
Society, pays $500 annually in
membership fees and travel
pool expenses.
For this cost each student
has the opportunity to find out
what his fellow Canadian stu
dents are thinking about common problems and how they
are reacting to common situa

Alan Gould, president of the
UBC Liberal Club said today,
"If a student regards his residence during the school year
as home, he has a right to register here."
Most out of town students
spend eight months of the year
at university, work during the
summer, and thus spend time
with their family only at
Christmas, he said.
Because the election is slated
for November, many students
are unable to register in their
non-school place of residence.
^ The Canada Elections Act
further complicates matters by
stating that in residence students must have moved in before the election writs were
issued on Sept. 8.
And absentee voting was
ruled out last week by Canada's chief electoral officer,
Nelson Castonguay.
Thus the only hope of the
majority of student residents
would seem to lie in travelling
back to their original place of
residence and registering there.
Pat Kenniff, president of the
135,000 member Canadian
Union of Students, estimated
that between 20,000 and 30,-
000 university students would
be affected by Elections Act
The CUS will be assisted by
their lawyers and by Dean W
W. MacKay of Dalhousie University's Law School.
Kenniff said they plan to
contest the question of student
registration to vote through the
law courts if their efforts to
get on the list are turned down.
Meanwhile Gould urges that
local would-be voters at UBC
contact an enumerator directly.
"If he thinks he should be
on the voting list, we may be
reached through Box 121.
We're setting up a special staff
of law students to appear in a
court of revision if necessary."
said Gould.
The first student-owned university residence in
Canada is under construction at the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario.
The four-storey residence to house 105 men and
women was made possible through a $387,000 loan from
the  Central Mortgage and Housing  Corporation.
The residence, owned and run by the Waterloo Campus
Co-op Residences Inc., should be comrjleted in January.
IThe annual fees will be about $140 less than the lowest
fees charged by university-owned residences.

A mining career opens new worlds
Someone told him the Canadian mining
industry couldn't get enough mining engineers, geologists, mineralogists. He
looked into it and discovered there were
five good jobs for every graduate in
mining and mineralogy.
Mining engineering was his choice.
Between university sessions he saw
mines and mining methods first hand -
and got paid for it. Later, the company
he joined indulged his desire to travel.
He did exploration work in the Canadian
Shield and the Peace, met a girl at a
convention in Helsinki and married her
in Cape Town.They have a house in Vancouver near the company's head office,
and the family will put down roots there.
A mining career opened a whole new
way of life for him. He's a man on the

as the winter rates come into effect.
But in September they come to UBC—the place they
won't be seeing for another year.
It's not that this breed is so fond of the academic life—
in fact, most of them are travelling to get away from it
for a year—but there is something so nice about not standing in line or having to attend lectures.
And they laugh when their friends casually mention
that they have to read "The Prairie" in two days for English
The emigrants are concerned with other, far more interesting, things—passports, for example.
"You should see my picture. It's terrible. I look like
I'm an old hag of 45," says a blonde third-year student.
And even smallpox vaccinations can be interesting—
comparing reactions, that is.
And, of course, there is the inevitable topic of comparing bargains in luggage and transportation prices.
Some students manage to go first class on a luxury
liner then camp for four months in Europe.
But there are others who manage to hitch-hike to New
York and take a Yugoslav freighter to Casablanca for $128.
Why do these high-brow hordes take off each year?
To get away.
To get away from schedules deadlines and alarm clocks
ringing at 7 a.m. every niorning.
To get away from those parts of university life which
are filled with phoniness.
And to get away from passing exams without knowing
a thing about the course the day after.
Granted these are only parts of university life, but to
the student getting away, they seem to be a lesser part of
life abroad than they are at UBC.
To take a year off university and work would foe too
final; it would be the leaving without a return.
But trotting off to Europe solves this, for most students
intend to return to get their degree.
Most students don't leave because they have failed; in

But they aren't eggheads who feel the whole world is
going  to hell.
They are looking for fun in Europe. You bet they will
watch the Rolling Stones in Britain, and drink that great
German beer.
They are looking for a different, and perhaps less
rushed, way of life.
But most of them will be back at UBC next year, and
ready for another trip when they graduate.

GRINNING QUARTET is UBC football coaching staff, called "finest in the country" by
UBC athletic  director  Bus   Phillips.   Left to  right they are: line coach Harvey Scott, assistant coach   Roy Jokanovich,   junior varsity   coach   Bill   Crawford,   defensive  coach   Bill
Crawford,   defensive   coach   Ross   Hethering ton, and head coach Frank Gnup. All interested in turning out for football are asked to  contact Gnup  in  the Memorial   Gym.
Football Birds coaches
best in Canada - Bus
UBC football teams have
the best college coaches in
That's the word from R. J.
<Bus) Phillips, UBC athletic
"All of our coaches have
had professional football experience," Phillips said recently.
• •   •
"I don't know of any other
university or college in the
country whose staff can compare with ours in that area."
Phillips was referring to the
four-man staff headed by
Frank Gnup, a genial, cigar-
devouring graduate of Manhattan College now in his
eleventh season here.
Gnup played football at his
alma mater, the U.S. Army,
and with the Hamilton Wildcats of the Big Four.
With the Hamilton club
forerunner of today's Tiger-
Cats, Gnup was a player-
coach. Under his direction the
Wildcats won the league
championship in 1949.
Gnup then went to the Toronto Argonauts.
• •    •
New to the coaching staff,
though not to Vancouver, is
line coach Harvey Scott, a
former B.C. Lions guard, who
graduated from the University of Western Ontario in
1962. He was first draft choice
of the Calgary Stampeders
that year.
He played with Calgary
and the Lions as a guard in
1962 and 1963, and obtained
his master's degree in physical education in 1964.
Defensive coach this year
will be Ross Hetherington,
former head coach at University of Saskatchewan.
Hetherington played with
the Edmonton Huskies and
the University of Alberta
Golden Bears. He impressed
the Edmonton Eskimos enough
to be invited to their pre-sea-
son training camps.
At Saskatchewan, Hetherington doubled as swimming
and diving coach. His diving
team won the WCIAA title
last year.

Fourth member of the T-
Bird staff is Bill Crawford,

to play football with the New
York Giants and the Calgary
He will coach the junior
A native of Penticton,
Crawford holds an engineering degree. He has returned
to UBC to make up courses
he needs to be accepted to a
school of veterinary medicine.
Although his arrival at
UBC's practice drills was unexpected, Gnup lost no time
in making him a permanent
member of the staff for as
long as he is at UBC.
•    •    •
Another UBC alumnus who
has joined Thunderbird coaching ranks is Roy Jokanovich.
He won four letters in four
years with the T-Birds, from
1956 to 1959.
Stints with the local Lions
and the Calgary Stampeders
gave him five seasons of professional football.

Birds drop
opener 12-0
The UBC Thunderbirds lost the opening game of their
1965 football season 12-0 to the Western Washington State
Vikings Saturday in Bellingham.
"We just couldn't move the
ball consistently," coach Frank
Gnup said afterwards.
"Our offensive line player!
well enough, but our backs ju?t
weren't doing what we expect
ed them to do."
The Vikings scored all their
points in the first half.
Early in the first period,
Western's Bob Cidner found a
hole up the middle and raced
43 yards to a major.
Western picked up its second
touchdown when Gary Axtell
blocked a Thunderbird punt
deep in UBC territory and
pounced on the loose ball in
the end zone.
The Bird defense was a
source of consolation for Gnup.
Twice they stopped the Vikings inside the ten yard line.
"I thought we had a good
overall defensive effort," he
Gnup singled out defensive
backs Barry Gallahan and Ben
Staplton for their aggressive
Besides mistakes by Thunderbird ball carriers, Gnup pointed out that strong play by
Viking defensive ends Maynard
Weber and Phil Wadell had a
lot to do with the Birds' inability to move the ball.
"They rushed us so hard we
didn't have much time to pass,
and turned our outside plays
"Actually, we ran pretty
well against them up the middle, but you can't do that all

The rowers are starting
training immediately for an
important series of races to be
held this spring in San Francisco, St. Catherine's (Ontario),
New York and Yugoslavia.
Coach Pretty has; stepped up
his recruiting programme this
fall in order to entice new prospects into the shells, as many
of the veterans of international
competiion are approaching
graduation and must be replaced. A booth in the armouries during registration week
produced 140 applications but
more are desired.
The oarsmen will hold daily

continuing throughout the fall.
During September and October
their actual rowing time will
be limited to weekends while

Birds were nipped 3-2 by
Burnaby Villa in the single
knockout competition for the

the PCL last season was very
happy with the Bird's play
"We're greatly Improved and
the team has plenty of desire,"
be said.
"We should be a strong contender this season," he added.
Burnaby's Normie McLeod
drove in a rebound by UBC
goalie Ike Scheffler with 20
minutes left in the game for
the winning goal.
McLeod and Ken Ferrier had
given Villa an early two goal
lead in the first half. But the
Birds fought back to even the
score on goals by Harvey Thorn
and Dick Mosher.
Mosher on a brilliant solo
effort drove a 30 yard shot past
Burnaby's Bob Bissett with ten
