On scholarships
McAfee
hits CUS
waffling'
By   TOM  WAYMAN
AMS president - elect Roger
McAfee Wednesday slammed
Canadian Union of Students
waffling on the Federal scholarship and loan plan.
"We want those scholarships
and we want them now," said
McAfee.
McAfee was referring to the
10,000 scholarships of $1,000
and the interest free loan plan
promised by the Liberals prior
to the last federal election.
CUS originally suggested
the scholarship plan in a resolution passed at the 1960
national conference in Halifax.
Speaking at UBC in February, current CUS president
Dave Jenkins announced that
CUS had yielded to French-
Canadian opposition and had
stopped demanding the scholarships and loans. He said CUS
now advocated equivalent tax
benefits.
And in Edmonton the following week, Jenkins called the
scholarship plan "unconstitutional."
In the House of Commons
Feb. 20, however, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson stated
the plan was constitutional.
"We do not consider this project (government loans and
scholarships) a violation of
provincial rights," Pearson
said.
"Loans to students are clearly of federal concern, as are
such banking measures as farm
improvement loans, small business loans and home improvement  loans."
Pearson stated his government considers itself committed to implementing the scholarship and loan fund before
the current parliament comes

Open House
in danger
of rainout
By MIKE VAUX
If it rains this weekend Open House is in trouble. And
it looks like rain.
—don hume photo
HANDS RAW FROM PRAYING, Open House chairman Ed
Lavalle tests precipitation outside Brock Hall. Lavalle is
worried that bad weather might cut expected Open House
crowd of 100,000 too less than half that. Weatherman's
long-range forecast isn't optimistic.
A Vancouver weather office
spokesman told The Ubyssey
Wednesday rain this weekend
is imminent.
"The outlook is for heavy
precipitation," he said. "When
it doesn't pour there will be
showers."
Ed Lavalle, Open House committee chairman, said if it does
rain during the two-day program, it will be a tragedy for
Open House.
"Of course we'll advertise in
the local papers saying the exhibits are all undercover," he
said, "but it could mean the
total attendance to the affair
will be down by many thousands."
Bob Cruise, vice-chairman
of the committee, said he
thought the attendance could
drop to about 10,000 people if
it rains.
"Originally we expected to
have about 100,000 visitors to
the campus."
Lavalle said there could be
no special arrangements made
for visitors parking and transportation in the event of rain.
"There will be too many
people around to allow special
parking rules," he said.
He said the displays are all
ready, and he hopes people will
appreciate the thousands of
hours' preparatidn that went
into making them.
Lavalle said he thought the
right way to see all the displays was to take the program
from the centre of the special
Open House edition, and then
cover the campus in a logical

Faster at death's door pleads
'Our efforts can't
By JOAN GODSELL
It's  tough, but  we're  last
ing.
We're lasting fasting, that
is.
It's the third day and we're
all near death's door.
•    •   •
I've been fasting with seven
other UBC students in support
of a drive to raise funds for
a school in Bechuanaland.
Do you know what it's like
to walk through the door of
Brock and smell the aroma of
that lousy hot coffee and hamburgers and chips, when all
you've eaten for three days is
salt, vitamin pills and water?

about food, but now, on the
third day, I just feel a bit
delirious.
Bonnie Erickson, one of our
band of fasters, has lost four
pounds already, but she's determined to last until Saturday, 10 p.m.
Bonnie's mother said she
would start fasting if Bonnie
doesn't stop soon.

SUB plan
contest
set to go
The architectural competition for the new student union
building will begin immediately.
More than 100 firms across
Canada are expected to take
part in the competition for the
$3.8 million building, AMS
president Malcolm Scott announced  Wednesday.
The UBC board of governors announced Tuesday it
would co-operate fully in setting up the final conditions for
the competition. Professional
advisor for the competition is
Warnett Kennedy, director of
the Architectural Institute of
B.C.
Terms of the competition are
expected to be approved by
the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada by the end
of the month, Scott said.
Designs will be judged by a
panel of noted architects.
William Wurster of San
Francisco, an internationally-
known specialist in campus
planning, has agreed to sit on
the panel.
Wurster's firm is now on a
retainer from UBC for campus
planning.
Prof. Henry Elder, director
of the UBC School of Architecture will also be a judge.
The competition will be conducted in two stages. The
panel will select four finalists
late in June from all firms
which submit preliminary designs. The finalists will then
draw up detailed plans which
will be judged in the fall. The
winner will then be selected.
Construction of the building

Homosexuals
Gay boys
queering
society
The rise of homosexuality
indicates the impending fall of
a civilization says Rev. Dennis
Clark.
Rev. Clark was speaking to
more than 150 students at a
talk sponsored by the Varsity
Christian Fellowship Wednesday.
"Most of you probably did
not know we have homosexuality in Canada till you read it
in this month's Maclean's," he
said. "Is this what happens to
civilization at its zenith?"
"Or is this sickness?"
Clark said he visited the remains of Pompeii, where lady
tourists were excluded from
a preserved "mens' room."
"Is it not significant," asked
Rev. Clark, "that Pompeii perished the way it did?"
He said he later toured the
interior of a usually locked
room in the remains of a
Greek city.
"On the walls were obscene
carvings in clay that formed
part of the worship," he said.
"This room was the antithesis of all things ancient
Greece prided itself on."
"When I saw the wives'
quarters in a Persian palace
ruin I pondered the problems
of a man with 300 wives," he
said.
"It's no wonder the men lost
their vigor."
He said no nation can reach
its zenith if thus severed from
God.
"In Moncton prison which I
visited there were men in for
narcotics, murder, rape, homosexuality, and robbery," he
said.
"Only the divine grace of
God can put it right."
Reverend Clark was talking
on  "A Minimal  Morality."

AMS plans loan fund
with $5,000 surplus
By TOM WAYMAN Ubyssey Council Reporter
Somebody's going to  get more  than  their  $24 worth
out of the AMS—and without interest.
Acting on a motion by Trish
AWS no more
Women dissolve
without tears
By CAROL BAKER
The Association of Women Students isn't.
A general meeting of the group Wednesday voted that
the organization disband.
AWS represents UBC's 5,000
women students.
The executive will remain
for one year as a committee
to investigate the need for the
group.
If no need arises the committee will act to dissolve the
whole show.
When the Wednesday meeting was called to order there
were only 17 girls present but
the number gradually swelled
to 22.
After reading the annual report president Carol Fielder
told the meeting the group was
presently doing nothing on
campus.
She said they sponsored the
Big and Little Sister banquet
and a fashion show last fall
but lost money because the
turnout was too small.
Later the meeting was
thrown open for general discussion.
Those present agreed women
are too busy doing other things
with campus clubs and organizations to work actively with
the AWS.
Fee on you
WINNIPEG (CUP) — The
student council at the University of Manitoba has recommended that student fees be
raised $2.
Kempston, Physical Education
president, council Monday
night set up a $5,000 fund out
of AMS surplus money to provide short-term, interest-free
loans to students.
Control over the dispensing
of the fund was turned over
to Dean W. H. Gage, dean of
inter-faculty affairs.
Miss Kempston made her report to council advocating the
plan after an investigation of
the legal and practical implications.
"Should an emergency
arise," said the motion, "the
money would be returned to
the AMS within a period of
time to be agreed upon by
Dean Gage and student council."
Councillors applauded the
passage of the motion enthusiastically.

"Your Ferry System." "Constructed by the Government of
British Columbia."
We've all seen these slogans
displayed throughout B.C.,
constantly keeping us aware of
our Social Credit Government's great achievements,
because Premier Bennett and
his Social Credit Government
thrive on publicity.
• •    •
So, now on campus in front
of the construction site of the
Commerce and Social Science
in Arts building is a sign telling us:
Major Contributor: Government of B.C.
Who's responsible for the
display of this sign? Who's
promoting our temporary
government?
By implication, the Government of B.C. is the Social
Credit Party. By implication
our Benevolent Premier is responsible for the construction
of this building.
Our Social Credit Government should not receive credit
for the new construction.
The real contributors, the
people of B.C., should.
• •    *
Why does this sign appear
during Open House week?
Could it be that UBC's
Board of Governors has compromised with Big Brother
Bennett to the extent it will
publicly support his political
party for a few pieces of silver?
When one party has a permanent sign promoting itself,
thing have gone too far.
UBC is a politically unaligned institution; such a display
defies comprehension. Until
now only the people outside
our ivory tower have been
subjected to Socred indoctrination.
Now there is subversion
within.
• •    •     .
A large majority of the expected 100,000 people who
pass that sign on Friday and
Saturday will automatically
associate the construction of
the building with Premier
Bennett, and His Party's sincere interest in education.
Perhaps UBC's Governors
don't realize they're duping
people into believing our
kind-hearted Premier is benevolently reaching into his own
pocket to supply the necessary
construction funds?
Not damned likely.
• •    •
This bit of not-so-subtle
publicity is just a little too
obvious to be anything but
outright mutual back-scratching.
That   advertisement
shouldn't be there when the
people of B.C. come here this
weekend.     It   should   be   replaced by this mesage:

Churches

out of SUB
By AL DONALD
The "U" in UBC will soon
stand for "Utopia."
At least it will if Dr. Avrom
Soudack has his way.
The short (five foot two),
cigar-smoking electrical engin-
ering professor predicted his
way through his Last Lecture
Tuesday by outlining the characteristics of an ideal university.
"Utopia 'U' is a true academic community." said Dr.
Soudack. He explained that a
true academic community is
one in which there are no
sharp breaks in status between
student and instructor.
"All are dedicated to the dissemination of what they have
learned," he said.
"This dissemination of learning is not only in one direction.
Seminars offer opportunity for
ideas to flow in the opposite
direction."
The purpose of such a university would be threefold: To
teach individuals how to learn
and ask the most searching
questions; to foster creativity;
and to make individuals productive members of society.
To achieve this purpose, said
Dr. Soudack, it would be necessary, among other things, to
cut lecture hours to 20 hours
per week.
Also the laboratory system
would have to be changed.
Utopia U does not have labs
"where four  students  muddle
The campus will have its
new $250,000 religious centre,
but it may not be in the student union as planned.
The centre may be built later
than the first stage SUB as a
separate unit.
Professor William Nichols,
head of the university religious
council, said Wednesday the
council cannot guarantee it can
raise necessary funds before
construction is slated to start.
SUB planner Dean Feltham
asked the religious council to
provide the guarantee last
week.
Feltham said Wednesday the
earliest start on the SUB will
be within six months and the
latest one year.
Nichols said the churches
may reconsider going into the
SUB because the SUB planning
committee insists upon the
guarantee.
He said a final decision will
be made at a meeting March
12.
"The need for a religious
centre is still there," he said,
"even if SUB has to go ahead
without us."
CUS after

Canadian Union of Students

through four hours of laboratory work" and then go home
to "write a communal report
cribbed from the fraternity's
files," he said.
Labs, instead, would be shorter and require more preparation by the student.
Open-book and take-home
exams would be included in the
curriculum. "Remember, we
have a responsible student at
Utopia 'U' and the honor system prevails."
A cheering section of 50 engineers augmented the meeting both in size and in noise
level.

Dr. Soudack disapproved of
the idea  of   an   anti-calendar.
Instead, he suggested "reaction sheets" for the evaluation
of course and instructor.
These would be handed out
to each class, and handed back,
unsigned, to the instructor, who
would use them to improve his
presentation.
Dr. Soudack defended the
charge universities are impractical. "This system operates
effectively in at least one university in the States today," he
said.

THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 1964
Our own man
We'd like to celebrate Shrove Tuesday a little late
this year, in special honor of Waffling Dave Jenkins
and his Canadian Union of Students.
We actually sympathize with Mr. Jenkins, because
he holds the untenable position of president of that
weird organization which allegedly represents the students of Canada at the national level. Between the idealistic demands of the French-Canadian members and tihe
arrogant requests of the evil Anglais, CUS never does
anything.
The case at hand is the Liberals' promised 10,000
scholarships, plus the interest-free loan program, on
which the government is reluctant to take any action.
One good reason for this is the inaction of CUS in stating a definite policy.
At its 1960 Congress, CUS resolved that the scholarships would be a wonderful idea. One year later,
they changed their minds after French demands that
the scholarships were not in their best political interest,
and therefore unconstitutional.
This year, along comes Mr. Jenkins, with three
varying points of view, depending on where he happens
to be speaking. On one hand, he demands action. Then,
he tells Edmonton's student council that the scholarships are unconstitutional (one week after the Prime
Minister has announced in the House that they are perfectly within federal jurisdiction).
And the latest release, from Winnipeg, has Jenkins
standing on the other foot again. The Liberal government owes the students of Canada $10 million in scholarships, he said, but they should consult the provincial
governments first.
UBC student officials have demanded that the scholarships be implemented immediately, in time to help
students faced with the $50 fee raise. But Jenkins,
whose waffling smells strongly of maple syrup, refuses
to make CUS' demands clear, with the result that the
federal government remains unsure of the political ad-
visibility of implementing them.
Dr. Geoffrey Andrew, director of the Canadian Universities Foundation, told an AMS official Tuesday that
one of the main reasons the Liberals haven't implemented the plan is that CUS, which represents student opinion in the capital, remains divided on the issue.
We'd suggest that the interests of UBC students
could be far better served by getting out of CUS altogether, and using the $5,700 we now spend on CUS to
hire a UBC man to sit in the capital and do our business.
The last time we sent an AMS representative to
Ottawa, he came back with a $75,000 winter works grant
for the arena.
The most we're getting out of CUS now is a regular
stream of contradictory press releases.
Tricky tactics
The appointed officials in charge of the SUB referendum played rather fast and loose with the impartiality
such a vote is supposed to require.
Perhaps the giant pro-SUB displays nestled around
some polling stations did not change any voters' minds
on the issue.
But their presence created a poor impression.
There have already been charges bandied around
regarding student councillors' intention to railroad SUB
and the fee raise, despite certain student objections.
The sight of a polling station backed by blaring
"vote sub" propaganda did little to dispel such charges.

For a long time now, Bech-
uanaland has been a thorn in
the side of South Africa.
Landlocked Bechuanaland is
situated on the northern flank
of South Africa.
The first Europeans to
linger in the country were
missionaries, and as a result

antly Christian. The Boers, in
their sweep northward, conducted slave raids into Bechuanaland and laid claim (as
they still do) to sovereignty
over the country.
With the help of missionaries they negotiated with Britain, which then guaranteed
protection from South African
incursions. As a result, Bechuanaland became a Protectorate in 1885.
Despite the friction, there
are still close social and economic links with South Africa. Nearly half the able-bodied
Bechuana males work in S.A.,
especially in the mines. The
country depends on S.A. as
an export market for meat and
as supplier of food, textiles
and manufactured goods.
Bechuana industry is limited to a slaughter house, a
bonemeal factory, a creamery
and a small soap factory.
Their facilities would cover
no more than three UBC stadiums.
Gold and asbestos mining
is carried on to a limited extent.
The two political parties
presently flourishing are both
committed to independence.
In 1958, 20 doctors and 14
hospitals with 726 beds serviced the health needs of a
population of almost 340,000.
Venereal disease, polio, TB,
smallpox and polluted water
supplies are not uncommon.
In 1958, over half the 70,-
000 children of school age did
not attend school, due mainly
to lack of facilities.
In that year, Bechuanaland
could boast only of 18 university graduates.
Responsibility for education and irrigation and roads
rests with the African authorities. Under the burden of increasing responsibility, they
have asked UNESCO for aid.
They themselves suggested
the school. It was from
UNESCO that the AMS re-
ceived this suggestion,
through the campus U.N.
club.
The Pilikwe school project
is a foundation for further development and a step on the

Edilar, The Ubyssey:
Congratu lations to the
Frosh Undergraduate society
on the first constructive move
they have made in years —
firing the editor of their newsletter.
This action has done more
for the cause of eliminating
the Frosh Undergraduate
Society (incidentally, a silly
name, for who ever heard of
a GRADUATE Frosh?) than
the editorial he wrote could
ever have done. One argument one hears from Frosh
often is "we have no democratic say in UBC government
without FUS because we
weren't here when the voting
was done". This is nonsense!
Is there any Democratic society anywhere where people
who 'just moved there' have
a representative on the government?.
Not one! If anyone who just
moved to B.C., California, or
any other state or province
was to suggest that everyone
who recently arrived have a
'first year rep.' in the legislature they would be laughed
at.

Seeing Red
It is interesting to see
Charlie Boylan, our fine
young Communist student, so
ably defending Separatism.
I would enquire of Mr. Boylan on what principles he
bases his statements. Certainly not on Communist principles, for these demand obliteration of nationalism in favor of state unity. Why even
Russia, that most Conservative of Communist Powers,
has disbanded all nationalist
groups within her control, insisting on ONE language,
ONE religion,  ONE culture.
Comrade Charlie has forgotten his very first lesson:
Minority powers are a menace to state solidarity. He will
awaken in Siberia if he continues to support the cause
of the French-Canadians—or
of the Ukrainians, of the Hungarians, or of the Czechs, or
of the . . .
Of course, we've overlooked the main point, haven't
we, Charlie? The only unity
worthy of the term is Communism .Those simple Frenchmen will be eager to liberate
themselves under the banner
of Lenin, The Great Conformist, on that glorious day in
the future. Meanwhile,

Editor, The Ubyssey:
This week on campus, there
are a half dozen or so students starving themselves for
the sake of a bit of publicity.
In my opinion, much more
publicity would be gained by
the starvation of some few
who are in need of same, i.e.,
Messrs. Scott, McAfee, and

Jam. $0m£.
Tom Jones is the best and
most orginal British work
since the rise of the kitchen
sink drama in 1958. Director
Tony Richardson has broken
away frorp the attitude which
Woodfall Productions has represented for over five years
now. The attitude prevailing
was that one must always be
realistic and always show the
seamier side of life, thus deriving social comment as a sort
of fringe benefit.
Tom Jones is, gratefully
enough, spared from his restrictive attitude partly because
it is set in 18th Century England and not modern England.
Since it does not have the
greasy touch of kitchen sink
drama about it (which even
Billy Liar had) the English
critics, who are of late on a
realism kick, naturally enough
shun the film.
If Tom Jones had stuck to
the trend it would not have
been as successful and as true
to Henry Fielding as it is. It
would have been just another
greasy British drama. But one
cannot be true to Fielding and
omit the spontaneous and robust drollery that is associated
with his work.
Tom Jones even retains
Fielding's chapter to chapter
comment in a rather unique
way. The actors, at appropriate
times, turn to the camera and
tell the audience what is going
on.
The first scene has mock
silent movie titles along with
a tinny dulcimer clanging
away in the background.
The technique of the film,
especially the camera-work,
which has been unjustly termed amateurish, lends itself very
well to this type of film. In
order to maintain the robust
comic mood originally set, the
director had to do something
rather drastic. He has the
camera follow the action in a
very documentary fashion,
twisting and jerking about as
the situation demands. The
color process — Eastmancolor
— is simply marvelous. Tom
Jones just wouldn't have been
right without the remarkably
rich color used.
The acting in Tom Jones is
of a consistently high calibre
except for Susanna York who
plays Squire Western's daughter (Tom Jones' love) very
shallowly and indiscriminately.
Albert Finney is both excellent and well-cast in the title
role. This film brings out his
potentialities much more than
Saturday Night and Sunday
Morning. He no longer has to
grimace at the camera muttering "bastards" under his
breath but can romp from bed
to bed to his heart's delight.
Edith Evans emotes just the
right amount of grouchiness
and puritanism as Squire Western's spinster sister and Hugh
Griffiths is almost as good as
Finney in his role as the fighting, drinking, wenching Squire
Western.
Tom Jones belongs in that
rare category of films that I
can bear to see over and over
again. It is, without a doubt, a
complete and resounding success. —ethel bloomsbury
WHY'S THAT FUNNY BLACK BUG on your cheek?'' asks Tom
Jones (Albert Finney) of the fine young lady (Joan Greenwood)
who has the job of showing him how to live in London.

Not surprisingly, people get
excited about The Bomb.
Upper intellectual echelons,
politically - minded construction bosses, housewives with
children, even, I suspect, the
Beatles, argue the pros and
cons of disarmament, rearmament, nuclear testing, clean
bombs and all the rest of it.
All these discussions are overwhelmingly serious. People
grow grey beards overnight
just contemplating fission,
fusion, overkill, megatons, nuclear shields, SAC and the rest
of the technically - shrouded
paraphenelia which the modern world has developed to kill
people. Even contemporary
comedians have not yet started making jokes about mass
death. It just isn't funny.
And then along comes Dr.
Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick's
Two weeks ago the Critics'
Page's Ethel Bloanasbury reviewed Kubrick's Dir. Strangelove and inferred it was, the
greatest thing since duck
feathers in bed.

by The Manitoban's Philip
Slayton and is herewith re<-

new film. It has been widely
acclaimed as a perceptive social analysis. It has been called
thought-provoking. It has been
subjected to searching intellectual analysis. It has been
used as source material in debates sponsored by disarmament groups. All of which is
rather strange, because Dr.
Strangelove appears to have
been intended as a comedy, or
at least a satire. Its theme,incidentally, is the nuclear destruction of the world by a madman.
Dr. Strangelove's plot is
simple. An anti - Communist
American general, who believes among other things that
water fluoridation is a gigantic
Communist plot to poison the
natural bodily fluids of capitalists, uses his good old American initiative and all by himself launches a nuclear attack
on Russia. The plot is secondary: Dr. Strangelove is essentially a study in caricatures, a
farce presumably at the expense of all that is worst in
American society.
But Dr. Strangelove is an
artistic failure. It treats a serious, even tragic theme in a
humorous way. Watching Dr.
Strangelove is like watching a
situation comedy using Bergen-
Belsen concentration camp as
the locale. Do you scream or
laugh when the stupid Nazi
guard is foiled again by the
clever inmates?
Some people really think Dr.
Strangelove is funny, a real
side-splitting panic in fact.
They collapse in hysterics
when the American armed
forces commander rambles on
in a demented fashion trying
to persuade the U.S. president
to wipe out Russia. They roll
on the floors when the good ol'
stupid Texan bomber pilot
struggles to open the bomb-bay
doors and ends up riding an
H-bomb which falls on a Russian missile base. But the best
bit of all to them is when the
U.S. soldiers under the command of the nutty general
shoot other U.S. soldiers because they think they are
"Commie rats in disguise."
But of course, laughing at
yourself is a proof of sophistication and maturity. And to
the extent that Dr. Strangelove makes you laugh at some
of the less catalysmic of human
failings, it is an excellent film.
But Stanley Kubrick, when
postulating where the more
significant human failings can ,
lead, has entered a realm
which is definitely not that of
humor nor even of satire. I
interpret the puzzled reaction
to his film at a Winnipeg preview this week as an indication
of its ultimate failure and the
inherent sanity of the average
man, if not of the average
man's leaders.
Mass death just isn't funny.

Even somebody's frosted
windowpane turned up at the
Vancouver Art Gallery on
Friday.
Blue Zone by Roy Kiooka,
part of the Fifth Biennial of
Canadian Painting, is one of
the more interesting of a lot
of unremarkable and uninteresting works. The Fifth Biennial does have one or two
things in its favor: color, lots
of paint, and conformity.
Supposedly ''a condensed
and coherent survey of the
best of Canadian painting over
the past two years", it looks as
unoriginal as modern "art".
Christopher Fry's House and
Barn is a saving grace. The
work shows a maturity and
proportion in its reworking of
white on  white landscape.
The Persian miniatures, on
display till March 15, are
heroic, epic and colorful. The
themes are ancient but the
imaginative attraction of the
pictures makes them timeless.
The details and stylization of
various schools brings home
the fact that, unlike today, the
painting was often a favorite
mode of preserving history.
But the sense of time is not
always the most overwhelming
aspect of this show.
An Indian "Madonna": A
Lady and Child in a Landscape
(Akbar period, c. 1600) depicts
the stylized, gracious madonna
and cherubic child in pastoral
setting much as Renaissance
religious pieces. The Oriental
influence — the opulence of
color, the landscape, the minutely-detailed jewels, the facial
features — shows a sensitivity
and refinement often missing
in enlarged western pieces.

Monday night, Jenkins issued a statement from Winnipeg
attempting to clear up CUS
position.
"The present federal government owes Canada's university
students $10 million," Jenkins
told AMS presidents Malcolm
Scott and Roger McAfee in a
telephone interview.
"But under the BNA Act,
education is a provincial matter, not a federal one," Jenkins
said.
He called for a consideration
of the matter at the federal-
provincial conference in Quebec March 31.
"Perhaps an agreement can
be worked out that is acceptable."
If not, Jenkins said, there
are several alternatives which
the federal government could
put into effect to benefit students, all deal with taxation,
a federal responsibility.
Jenkins stated: "It is important that the government act

Alpha Tau Omega defeated
the UN club in the semi-finals

arguing that "Greek letter societies are an asset to a university."
"An individual often joins
a group holding similar likes
and dislikes," said Michael
Fullerton, speaking for the
affirmative.
"Yet there seems to be so
much diversity within the
group. A fraternity makes you
learn something about tolerance."
John    Sutherland,    second

questioned the meaning of the
word "asset."

He said that such things as
Elizabeth Taylor, the UN General Assembly, exces s i v e

either as assets or liabilities depending on the person who
judges  them.
Charles Boylan, Arts III,
speaking against the motion
said that a university would
be better off without fraternities.
"They are secret societies
based on social elitism and social exclusiveness," he said.
He compared fraternities to
the KIu Klux Klan. "Today
in the United States, fraternities and sororities wage a
struggle to keep negroes from
university," he said.

Arvind Sahay, the second
negative speaker, charged that
fraternities hold no allegiance
to  the university.
He pointed out a case two

charged with racial discrimination, said that they had no
allegiance to UBC but to their
chapters in the Southern

Two UBC wrestlers have
qualified for the Canadian
championship trials in Saskatchewan May 22-23.
"Five wrestlers from B.C.
were chosen," said Paul Nemeth, UBC manager. "Rod Car-
row and Bruce Green from
UBC."
Carrow won the B.C. Championship in the 191-pound class
last weekend, while team mate
Bruce Green won the 125-
pound class.
The Canadian trials pick a
team to go to the Olympics.
"Too bad Cann Christensen
hurt himself Saturday," /said
Nemeth.
"With his record he would
likely have been chosen, but
the doctors say he might be
out of action until after May
22."
Christensen, undefeated in 11
bouts this season, dislocated his
elbow in his second bout, Saturday.
Gunnar Gansen, another
member of the five-man UBC
team, came second in the 177-
pound class.
Besides the 19th Annual
High School tournament, with
its color and excitement, being

In previous years, UBC dominated the WCIAA, until last
year when Calgary brought in
the American Lloyd Harris.
The league race suddenly became interesting and UBC had
a difficult job in winning the
title.
Saskatchewan's coach Don
Newton rounded up 6ft. 8in.
Gary Gobel from the U.S. semi
pro circles, 6ft. 6in. Robin Fry
from Manitoba, and 7ft. Orville
Fisher from Edmonton.
Newton's collection of imports have given Peter Mullin's
Birds trouble all year.
Only one Bird is an import,
Gord Betcher, who comes from
Courtenay. Everyone else
„omes from the lower mainland.
The Huskies have the height
advantage while the Birds have
experience.
Ron Erickson, at 6ft. 7in., is
UBC's tallest player, while both
Fisher and Gobel are taller for
Saskatchewan.
Dave Way and Bill McDonald
have had experience with the
Lethbridge Broders; Dave Osbourne played for the McGavins and John Cook and
Erickson have played a year

Fisher is a frosh and Fry is

Shrum also said the new
academy will not duplicate
UBC courses.
"We definitely won't be going into professional schools
such as agriculture and forestry.
"And that's one thing B.C.
doesn't need," he said.

Government looking
for student aid plan
The Canadian Universities Foundation has been asked
by the Liberal administration to draw up a comprehensive
national plan for student aid.
The  CUF study is expected
to embody details of the promised federal scholarships, loan
and bursary programs for university students.
The study was announced
in the House of Commons by
Prime Minister Lester Pearson
last week.
CUF director Geoffrey Andrew told officials of the
Alma Mater Society Tuesday
the study would be concerned
with student aid at the entrance level, through the undergraduate years, and at the
graduate school level.
He said he was also interested in year-round operation of
universities, such as Simon
Fraser Academy has announced.
Andrew said that the Canadian Union of Students, which
first suggested the scholarship
plan in 1960, so far has not
asked to get in on the study.
He said he would be pleased
to receive representations from
CUS, but that so far no one
had approached him.
One of the prime reasons the
Liberals have hesitated to put
through the scholarship plan
was that CUS was now divided
on the issue, Andrew said.
"No wonder we're getting
nowhere on these scholarships," commented AMS president-elect Roger McAfee.
"CUS didn't even know the
whole matter had been handed
over to CUF — and yet their
office is just a block from
Parliament Hill."
