EDITORIAL
The board yields
— but only a little
The board of governors' special report appears to be
a welcome and long-overdue statement of its policy on
the "crisis of higher education."
Despite the fact that it is worded only in generalities,
the report is a concrete plan aimed at solving, in from
three to five years, UBC's basic problems.
The most basic problem is, and always has been,
money. The report's warning is there, for the government, the students, and the taxpayers—UBC must have
more—now.
In previous years, the board has adamantly refused
to release information of any kind concerning the University's financial activities. Even the financial statement which the University is now annually required
to print does not contain information which would allow
one to gain any knowledge of the board's policy. Indeed, the very manner in which today's report was prepared and presented indicates that the board is still
extremely reluctant to discuss the business of higher
education with anyone:—least of all the students, or
the taxpayers.
Nevertheless, the report is a wedge in the door which
is to be hoped will allow some realistic appraisal of the
board's activities.
It is to be hoped that the public will grasp the
significance of the statements—here, the board has laid
out what it thinks needs to be done, when, and again,
the big problem—how much it will cost.
The release of the statement indicates that after two
years of bickering amongst the members and with the
government, some concensus has been reached. Apparently, the board has agreed on priorities, and has been
able to work out a compromise with Mr. Bennett on how
these tasks are to be financed.
It remains to be seen whether the statement is intended as a bit of pressure on the government to come
through with the money requested from it—or whether

Council asks
delay in
fee raise
Student council Monday
night demanded a thorough
investigation of students' ability to raise money to pay any
fee  increase.
After an hour-and-a-half in
camera session, council passed
a resolution asking that the
Board of Governors refrain
from any increase in tuition
fees until such a study is made.
"Or in the event that such
an investigation fails to disclose such an ability to pay,"
the resolution ran, "thore
(should) be established a supplementary bursary and loan
program sufficient to create
the ability to pay."
Speaking after the meeting.
AMS president Malcolm Scott
explained the survey council
had in mind.
"Such a survey was carried
on in Quebec by the sociology
departments of Laval and
Montreal Universities," he said.
He said the project dealt
with every aspect of summer
and part-time jobs held by
students, and also covered student family resources.
The inquiry, he said, was
instrumental in obtaining a
bursary and loan increase ol
from $4 to $16 million in the
year the fees in Quebec universities were raised.

Board announces
crash' program
University of B.C. fees will be increased by $50 to $100
next September.
Futher increases are likely in September, 1965 and 1966.
A major policy statement released this morning by the
Board of Governors indicates the fee boosts will be necessary to meet operating expenses of the University during a
three-year crash plan.
Present fees for a general arts or science course are $322;
average fee for all courses is $385.
The statement said the Uni
versity wants to bring revenue
per student up to the Canadian
average by the 1966-67 term.
Average revenue per student from provincial and federal governments, student fees,
ind miscellaneous gifts and
giants last year was S1,'J17.
Ihe Canadian average from
these sources was $1,797, the
statement said.
Next year, the Canadian av
erage will be $1,995 — UBC's
average, $1,921, the report
states.
The statement indicates the
large gap between last year's
and next year's figures —
.-••■ore than $10 million — will
have to be made up by a larger-
than-evcr operating grant from
the provincial government and
the fee increase.
Larger grant needed
Provincial grant figures will
not be known until after the
legislature opens Jan. 23. Education Minister Les Peterson
has told UBC officials his education estimates will be announced about the first waek
of February.
Official announcement of
the fee boost is expected .following Peterson's speech.
A fee increase of $100 would
bring the University an extra
$1.65 million next year.
Informed sources have indicated to The Ubyssey that the
provincial operating grant will
be increased considerably for
1964-65.
The board's statement also
outlines a program, to accomplish key academic goals, including:
•   Provision for   16,500  stu
dents next year (this year's enrolment is 14,720); and for
19,400 students by Sept.  1966
• Doubling the library's
present volume of 600,000
books by 1970, at a cost reaching $1 million a year by 1970.
• Obtaining at least 100
more faculty members per
3'car for four years to maintain
UBC's present teacher-student
ratio of 1:17 — and obtaining
at least an additional 50 new
faculty per year to support the
graduate school.
• An additional $100,000
next year to expand the computing centre.
• At least $30 million in
capita] grants during the next
five' years to complete the
building program.
End to secret tactics
The statement said that by
1966-67, UBC will have to
reach the Canadian average
revenue per student, which by
then will be $2,200.
"Our university must plan
now if it is to continue fulfilling its responsibiity for the
development of higher education in this province," said
UBC president Dr. John Macdonald.
"This program is UBC's pinn
to improve the calibre of education in the face of today's
explosion of knowledge, and
to provide that education for
rapidly increasing numbers
of students."
The statement was the first
time the Board, which has been
heavily criticized for its secret
tactics, has agreed to release
information concerning UBC
finances.
A report of the Canadian
Universities Foundation showed the average Canadian university   charged    $386    for    a
general arts program in 1982-
63.
UBC fees although slightly
below/ the national average,
are highest in the West. University of Alberta fees vary
between 8250 and $290 for
arts, science, commerce, and
education courses.
University of Saskatchewan
fees are $225—and Manitoba's
are $300.
The report states that principal income sources have been
36 per cent from the provincial
government; 25 per cent from
student fees; 25 per cent from
the federal government: and 14
per cent from miscellaneous
sources, incuding gifts and
grants. It implies that this
breakdown will likely be followed in future.
Using the report's figure of
$2,200 average revenue from
the four sources, fees could be
as high as $550 by 1966. Page 2

Class
in uproar
Grad reps
split on
executive
By TOM WAYMAN
Ubyssey Council Reporter
A clash of personalities split
the grad class exexcutive wide
open Friday.
When the noon meeting dissolved in an uproar at 1:30
p.m., both president Tom
Skupa and treasurer Rob Ho-
hort announced their intention to resign.
They both later submitted
resignations to student president Malcolm Scott.
• •    •
Friday's   meeting   called together about 10 class reps and
15 observers from the class of
'64.
Several times Skupa showed
he was carefully controlling
the emotion in his voice as ho
explained a" point of his executive's policy to a representative.
The meeting did manage to
approve the use of the Vancouver Hotel for the Graduation Ball on May 29.
Then Skupa ahnouced to the
meeting:
"The executive has asked for
the resignation of our public
relations man."
(The PR post is held by Ted
Conover, an unsuccessful candidate for the presidency of
the class.)
• •    •
Since a discusion of personalities was involved, Skupa
said, he was turning over the
chair to Malcolm Scott, AMS
president.
Scott immediately asked for,
and got approval of, an in-
camera session.
After 48 minutes, behind
closed doors, it was announced
that there was no change in
the grad class executive.
"As this motion was not
carried," Skupa then stated,
"I will have to resign."
But Skupa was willing to
elaborate on his motion.
"The executive couldn't
agree with Conover on any
subject," Skupa said.
• • •
Conover, in a statement released Friday, said he was
sorry to hear of the resignations of the president and
treasurer.
"I look for a speedy election
of two new graduating class
members to these offices," he
said, "so that we may be able
to carry on the grad class business."

PREMIER BENNETT and most of the students may call it Vic toria University, but to The Ubyssey, Victoria College's radio
society, and pretty Elizabeth Barrett, it's still Victoria Colle ge. Or maybe they couldn't afford a new sign for their
student union building office.

Salisbury of the University
of Oregon reads from his
works at noon today in
Bu.  104.

labor talks
The Student Christian Movement is presenting three noon-
hour lectures and a fire-side
discussion this week on the
labor union and its place in
today's society.
Tomorrow (Wednesday)
noon in Bu. 100, Dr. J. T.
Montague, director of UBC's
Institute of Industrial Relations, will speak on the future
of industrial relations.
Thursday noon in Bu. 203
Profesor A. W>. R. Carrothers'
topic will be "Labor and Law".
Dr. Stuart Jamieson will
speak on "Union-Management
Conflicts — Good or Bad?",
Friday noon in Rm. 100.
The "fire-side chat" is Friday evening at 8 in St. Andrews Hall.
Faculty and students will,
ask "Are there ethics in industrial relations?"
Roads gallery paves way
for new look in cityscapes
UBC's Fine Arts Gallery is featuring two exhibitions
on roads this week.
An exhibition from the New York Museum of Modern
Art displays 70 photographs of elevated roads, multi-lane
highways, interchanges, and airport runways, looking to
the day when "highways will no longer . . . destroy city-
scapes and landscapes alike, but will be brought within
the discipline of the humane arts."
The other exhibition is a collectoin of Gordon Webber's paintings on roads.
Webber has ben teaching design in the McGill School
of Architecture since 1942.
Social workers need guts
to buck welfare system
By JOAN GODSELL
Social workers will have to
find some guts to fight if they
want improved working conditions.
Dave Barrett, MLA for
Dewdney and NDP welfare
critic, made the comment Friday at a meeting sponsored by
the UBC New Democrats.
"Unless they fight for themselves, no one will fight for
them", said Barrett who was
fired from a job at Haney for
political activity.
He said the crisis in social
welfare is neither new nor confined to B.C. But it is more
acute here than anywhere else
in North America except the
southern United States.
Barrett charged that the
present Welfare Act pays families to split up. He cited two
examples:
The first case was that of an
unemployed North Surrey man
with four children and a pregnant wife.
Under social welfare, he re*
ceived $168 per month to support them plus a card entitling
them to free medical care.
The man was given special
[permission to attend Vancouver Vocational Institute
and received a $75 per month
allowance.
But this sum, was immediately deducted from his welfare
cheque and the medical care
card withdrawn because he
was an "unemployed employable," said Barrett.
Barrett said the man deserted his wife, she got back the
$168 a month and the medical
card and he got the $75 a
month training allowance plus
$30 for his living expenses.
Barrett said that in another
case, a deserted woman and
her four children received
$168 per month, free medical
care and a $24 family allowance.
She could not manage and
was forced to turn her children over to the department,
Barrett said.
In foster homes, each child
received $80 a month and she,
living by herself, received $66
.par month.
"The result," said Barrett,
"was that the family received
$386 to split up where it was
only  getting $192  to  stay  together."
Barrett also criticized the
probation system and correctional institutions. He said a
12-year-old boy was sent to
Brannen Lake on a charge of
incorrigibility.
One solution to the welfare
problem, according to Barrett,
is in research. At present, $12
million is spent annually on
jails and not one dollar on ie-
search, he said.
Barrett will speak again on
campus Wednesday noon.

RCMP say
Suicide
verdict
stands
The Pal Singh Virk case will
not be reopened.
"I am satisfied with the
coroner's investigation and the
conclusion of suicide", said
Sergeant Doug; Thompson of
the campus RCMP detachment
on Monday.
Thompson was comment-
ing on a letter written by
Virk's father, Sharam Singh
Virk of Amritsar, India who
called the death homicide.
Thompson said nothing will
be done regarding the letter.
A coroner's inquest concluded Virk had committed suicide
by swallowing cyanide.
Sharam Virk does not agree.
"It is a definite case of homicide" he wrote.
Police said the cause of suicide was a bad examination
failure.
Virk's father said this could
not be true because his son
never took failures badly.
"His past character shows
that he never took anything
serious (badly) in his life. Once
he failed in his BSc. exam in
1958, miserably, but he never
felt this failure."
"As a father I cannot believe
that my son has committed suicide. But this seems to be ?.
case of homicide.
He claimed Virk did not
know he failed the examination when he allegedly committed suicide.
"Generally the suicide's decisions are taken just after
the declaration of the result. It
is understood that he appeared
on one of his papers Dec. 6 and
he had told one of his friends
that he had done the questions
very nicely and he might get
first-class   honours."
"He was in the habit of
writing his program for the
next day, so if ever he thought
so he must have written his
program of committing suicide
but there was no such written
program which he contemplated.
"As was given in the press
there was a beaker with cyanide. This seems that some person jealous of his abilities and
his leading tendency had
placed the beaker there =o
that he may not come to the
light."

Firebug
evades
police
Police and fire officials are
still looking for the firebug
who set three small fires
last week.
They did turn up a man
asleep in the auditorium Friday night.
The man, a former UBC
student, was questioned by
police about the fires.
He was released after telling police he was just looking for somewhere to spend
the night.
Housing director John
Haar has urged all students
to keep an eye out for the
arsonist.
"The best defence against
this kind of thing is the students' alertnes," he said.
The most serious fire last
week, which did over $2,000
dam,age to the Forestry and
Geology building, was probably not the work of the fire
bug, a spokesman for the
provincial Fire Marshall's office said Monday.
"The other fires were not
set with the intention of destroying the buildings," he
said. "They were set for their
nuisance value."
While firemen were fighting three small fires in the old
Arts building, Buchanan, and
Brock, Wednesday night, four
false alarms were set off, he
said.
"The UBC firemen with
their old equiptment did a
terrific job," he said.
He said officials are still
searching for the fire bug.
Governors' statement says
Shortage of library books
means UBC's no Harvard
UBC's library must be
doubled in size by 1970. the
Board of Governors' statement
says.
Arid to reach the desired total of 1.2 million volumes, the
library budget must be increased from $600,000 a year
to $1 million in 1970.
The statement says the increased number of books is
necessary if UBC is to meet
the needs of a larger student
population, and increased
graduate and resarch work.
Today, UBC's library has
less than a third of the number of volumes in the University of Toronto library, the
largest in Canada.
"Our scarcity of books is
only one problem," the statement says. "Staff and physical facilities are also needed."
"UBC's library has been designed primarily to meet the
needs of an undergraduate institution.
But the report says UBC's
little-known computing-centre
is almost as important as the
library.
And if UBC wants to keep
pace with advances in computer technology, an additional
$100,000 must be spent in
1964, the statement says.
"The costs of supporting
the computing centre with
its present highly qualified
staff will continue to rise
as more and more needs develop for this modern technological tool," the report says.
"It is indispensible in both
the natural and social sciences,
engineering, medical and biological sciences, mathematics
and many other fields."
Peterson cancels,
Ward jumps in
Education Minister Les
Peterson has cancelled a
scheduled speech at UBC
Wednesday.
Students will be able to
hear AMS vice - president
Jim Ward instead.
Ward called the special
meeting in Brock to discuss
possible student action following the release of the
Board of Governors statement today.
Debate Manitoba next
UBC wins McGoun round
UBC's computing centre was
established in 1957, at a cost
of $70,000.
UBC's undergraduates will
have to make do with the
buildings they have because no
more will be built for them,
the statement says.
The last building designed
specifically    for     undergrad
uates, an arts-commerce bloc,
will complete undergraduate
facilities available to UBC students.
The report says a further
$30 million will be spent on
university construction but
that emphasis will be shifted
to graduate and professional
schools.
UBC is looking ahead to the
McGoun Cup debate now after
showing Victoria College how-
to look back in anger.
A win over Victoria College
Friday qualified the UBC team
to compete in the finals
against  Manitoba.
Judges Leon Getz and Dr.
Malcolm McGregor awarded
the UBC team a unanimous
decision.
Bonnie Erickson (Arts IV)
and Peter Hyndman (Law 1)
proved that "this house would
look back in anger" to Victoria
debaters Bryan Ralph (Arts IV)
and Nicholas Etheridge (Arts
III).
li£;.-*§fc-
DR. MALCOLM McGREGOR
...  his  decision
The debate was a preliminary to the McGoun Cup competition for supremacy in Western Canada.
Each participant presented
a 10-m,inute argument and a
5-minute rebutal in accordance
with the McGoun Cup Competition Constitution.
The Victoria team argued
that to look back in anger was
insane and dangerous.
"Don't risk your neck, don't
lok back" said Etheridge.
Hyndman described the negative arguments as irrelevant
in his rebuttal.
UBC will compete with the
University of Manitoba for
the   McGoun Cup.
Enrolment to increase
31 per cent by 1966
UBC enrolment will jump to 19,400 by September,
1966.
A board of governors' statement released today blamed
the 31 per cent increase over today's 14,800 enrolment on
the post-war baby boom.
"During the next three or four years, these post-war
'babies' will be entering college in a deluge," the statement said.
The statement predicts UBC enrolment will jump to
16,500 by next September.
It also predicts that a total of 37,000 students will be
getting higher education at B.C. universities and colleges
by  1970.
100 teachers needed
— just to keep even
UBC will need at least 100 more teachers each year if
the present student faculty ratio is to be maintained.
The present ratio is one pro
fessor ot every 17 students, the
board of governors policy statement says.
The usual ratio for undergraduate institutions is about
one to twelve, and the ratio of
faculty to students in graduate
school is usually four or five
times larger, it says.
The report stated that faculty salaries in the United States
have been increasing at the
rate of 5.8 per cent, but only
at 3.0 per cent in Canada.
Last year the average salary
at UBC ranged from fourth to
ninth, depending on the rank
concerned, among Canadian
universities.
The board said it is its continuing objective to provide
salaries at least equal to those
paid at any Canadian university.
"This is a realistic goal if
UBC is to compete successfully
with universities in other countries," the report stated.

Softening blow
(Continued from Page 1)
the statement is insurance that the government will, in
fact, came through with an already agreed-upon sum.
Sources close to the matter say it is likely that the
board and the government have already met and agreed
upon the contributions to be made. This way, the government can say it has given the largest operating grant
ever to UBC, and. not be blamed by those other than
students for raising fees, which the board will "reluctantly" be forced to do later.
This is not to be considered sinister back-room dealing if, in fact, the University is to benefit from the discussions—although the fact that fees will be raised is
naturally unpalatable to students.
We will know the true picture sometime in February, when education minister Peterson, who continues
to be the best friend UBC's got in Victoria, announces
his estimates. Then, the board of governors' colorful
cartoons and distorted graphs contained in their report
of today will take real meaning.
It appears, therefore, that the report is a softening
blow aimed mainly at the taxpayers. The students will
object strenuously—and rightly, in most cases, we think—
but will go unheard.
The cold, hard fact remains: of the four main income
sources, it is only the students' contribution which is a
sure thing. A fee increase of $100 is an automatic $1.6
million in the bank.
It is unfortunate that the board's decision, considered
in light of last year's fiasco, will make them appear to
some students to have backed down on their demands.
It is evident, however, both from the board's statements of UBC's needs, and from comparisons with the
fee structures of other universities, that students are
going to have to take a greater financial hand in their
education.
This strikes particularly hard at UBC students, who
already have contributed much in the way of buildings
and matching grants to the university through the AMS;
and also because many UBC students already incur the
high costs of living away from home.
In short, it is questionable whether economic freedom of education, in fact, does exist in B.C.—a student
from the Interior is already faced with a difficult financial problem. And there's no indication that junior colleges, or Simon Fraser, will be ready to help out before
1966—when there will be 20,000 students at UBC.
The government and the board, then, if they are to
be realistic about fee increases, must also make sure
that equally large increases are made in bursary and
loan funds, and in the money-for-marks scholarship plan.
The board should also satisfy the students—although
it is under no possible compulsion to do so—that it is
realistic to assess the students 25 per cent of the costs in
outright fees. Perhaps the provincial government should,
like the governments of most U.S. States—provide more
than 36 per cent?
Also, what is to ensure that increased finances from
the other major sources — the federal government and
private donors — will be forthcoming. And, finally, what
is the board going to do if it cannot get the money from
these sources?
It is to be hoped they will not turn again to the
students.

Naked truth on firebug: he
wants to bare his arse, son
Strange, what the pressures
of higher education will cause
people to do. Last Fall, we
were treated to the spectacle
of naked men runing around
the beach, frightening both
themselves and our first-year
female students.
• •    •
The onset of the lengthy
monsoon season put an end to
that particular aberration.
Apparently, though, the
same sexual deviates are
bending under the strain of
their studies again. Rather
than run the. risk of pneumonia or worse {like capture,
the authorities having been
alerted), they have turned
their attentions indoors and
have begun firing up the campus in a new manner.
Four fires were set in four
different buildings last week,
three of them in washrooms
—men's  washrooms.
There may be a social motive behind the fires. Three
of the buildings are ancient
rat-traps and deserve burning. However, this possibility,
upon examination, only reveals that the old buildings
were selected because they
burn better, not because they
are old and ugly.
• •    •
It is the washrooms that
provide the key.
If a pervert cannot go outdoors, whdt better place for
him than a washroom? And
sitting in an old smelly John
would drive almost anyone to
extremes.
It becomes obvious that
these fellows are frying two
birds with one match. Osten
sibly, they are getting their
unusual kicks, now, out of
setting fires and easing their
own frustrations by precipitating new ones for society. In
fact, that is not what they are
doing at all. They are really
up to their old tricks but are
forced to do something to offset the factor of inclement
weather and, hence, the fires.
• • •
The destructive agency of
fire is only secondary.
Warmth, and only warmth, is
what our friends are after,
because the heat from the
fires will enable them to
prance about outdoors, regardless of the rain.
Fire Marshalls, pay attention to this! Stop poking
about buildings searching for
fire-bugs. Just wait for the
next fire, that's all, and when
the alarm, goes off, don't
send anybody to put out the
fire.
•    •    •
Let it burn, and as it begins
to become a good hot blaze,
scatter your men around outside the building with instructions to look for anyone
taking off his clothes and
dancing a jig.
That is how you will end
these arsons.

Apathy: who's worst?
It's a well-known fact  that
students   of   every  Canadian
university   are   more  apathetic   than   students   of   every
other Canadian university.
You don't believe us? Read
the other university newspapers we have on file. Canadian University Press even
has a special clipping file for
"Apathy."
Our activities .program is
as extensive as a university
five times the size, much to
the chagrin of our treasurer,
and as a result we can only
expect one-fifth the turn-out
for each activity. If 5% of any
given student body is interested in hearing a particular
speaker, UBC's 5 % would fill
a 750-seat auditorium, whereas Victoria's 5% would be
100 strong in a 400-seat auditorium. Which institution
would appear to have greater
"school spirit?"
Organization of events suffers too. It takes just as much
work to organize an event
for which there is little turnout as it does for one which
is  enthusiastically  attended.
We would suggest three
remedies: One, an attempt
should be made to draw more
students into the working of
the AMS; Two, activities
should be fewer in number
and more evenly spaced;
Three, activities, whenever
possible, should be timed to
avoid examination dates and
other times of extreme academic work-load.
We would also suggest a
fourth remedy; all those who
strongly believe there is any
apathy and who wish to see it
eliminated should approach
council members, committee
chairmen, and club executives
and volunteer their services.

FIRST FROLIC FORMED FIENDS
UBC anthropologists have
hit upon an amazing discovery
while excavating for remnants
of the ancient Point Grey aborigines, in the south-west corner of the Armoury, yesterday.
The scientists had reached the
podzolization level in their
diggings when their trusty
spades uncovered a well-preserved pre-historic form -lying
horizontally amongst charred
ruins of unknown origin.
The amazing fact concerning
this discovery, according to
Dr. Sawthorn, professor of an-
thropolgy and leader of the expedition, is that the finding can
be traced back to an ancient
paleozoic orgy, possibly the
first Farmers' Frolic held in the
early 1900's.
The body was in an unbelievable state of preservation,
due to the presence of an unidentified chemical that contains an ethyl base. However,
the corpse's digits showed
slight signs of decay as compared to the rest of the body,
where apparently the preservative had not fully penetrated.
The researchers also noted that
iho corpse had a definite twitch
of the right ear, and its fingernails were poorly manicured.
The Point Grey Indians, a
cannibalistic tribe, were the
originators of a fiendish ceremony called "Bobaloo Moo,"
during which obscene rituals
were performed in exhaltation
of their god Tangmangatootz.
The proceedings of these  rites
• Only $2.75 per couple.
• From   8:00   p.m.  to   12:00
midnight.
• In the Armouries.
• Tickets at AMS, from any
Aggie.
• Featuring Hank  the Hobo
and the Hillbillies.
• Dress—Hard Times,
• Door Prize.
• Saturday,  January  18.
were handed down to each succeeding generation, until it is
what we now know as the
Farmers' Frolic.
The corpse was seen clutching a leather twong pouch, embroidered with red beads, in its
boney fingers, and would mutter, "Come, fill my twong."
Informed sources have revealed that these remains may
be what is left of the first Dean
of the Faculty of Agriculture,
who was reported as missing
during one of the ill-reputed
"Bobaloo Moo" festivals.
Again the Aggies are bringing for the festival.
Many of the original rites are
being reincarnated and the originators of this great-feast are
expected to return in spirit.
You had better make sure
you go this year, because next
year's academic standards are
liable to close it down for good

Twing Twong
What's twong in the barn
■*
Modern man seldom seems
to have time to stop and really
ponder over the wonders of
science (isn't that profound).
A select group of Aggies can
be seen worrying about this
very sad turn of affairs every
Friday night in the lab at the
foot of Granville Street on
S.W. Marine. (Also Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, too—
what a strenuous lab course).
The' name of this course is
Plant Products 419; the name
of the group is 'Armpits Anonymous.'
At recent meetings of this
most illustrious group, discussion . has centered around a
sudden attack of marriages
which has tended to thin the
ranks noticeably. Hell, every
Aggie you meet these days is
either married or something!
Some people might think that
a recent influx of new Aggie
women is to blame. I prefer
to differ.
It is my firm belief that the
whole state af affairs can be
related   to   an   acute   lack   of
"twong." "Good grief, Charlie
Brown, what's twong?," you
say. Ah, then, my children,
gather round whilst Uncle
John relates the mystifying
and legendary story of twong.
The story might rightly be
said to start with Dr. Livingstone, that great African explorer who was the first white
man ever to see the tanned
scrotum of the wild African
rhinoseros. This discovery was
made in darkest Kenya somewhat before the advent of the
Mau Mau; and has contributed
markedly to emergence of potent nations in that area of the
globe.
The next we hear of twong
concerns the startling discovery of Albert Aggis—Class of
'20—who unearthed a petrified
twong pouch while collecting
soil samples in the depths of
C lot, late one day in January
Albert immediately showed his
new-found twong to the current Dean of the Faculty who
immediately   declared  a   state
of frolic! A frolic has been
held ever since to mark the
event.
Over the past two years,
twong fell into disrepute. The
power of the God of twong
was soon felt. Aggies married
right and left—some even
passed exams. Others took it
upon themselves to graduate.
Surely the twong god was at
work! A sad state all 'round.
This is the year of the
change. Twong is back. Aggies
need their twong .All shapes
and si^es are in vogue this
year—plaid, beaded, mohair
and the scarce white rhino are
very much in fashion. See
them at the frolic!

Cocktail circuit
Throughout the tumultuous and money-less history
of UBC, Aggie students always rose to be counted as an
integral part of the student body. Today, this characteristic is still very much in evidence, but the Aggie has
changed to keep up with tihe rest of the Campus.
He (she) is no longer the "farmer type" from the
outback who rides down to UBC to pick up some book
learning. The Aggie today is as socialized as any student,
complete with rotoWp umbrella and tab collar.
This trend has replaced a colorful figure on the campus of UBC. In earlier years, Aggies were renowned
for their chest-thumping exuberance in campus wars;
their armorous conquests were the envy of all artsmen;
their a.le-quaffing capacity sent the mightiest of Engineers away with the proverbial "green gills." Although
the external trappings are different, we are sure that
Aggies have not changed but, rather, are. disguised as
"wolves in sheeps' threads."
Campus society being what it is, the pursuits in
which we previously excelled have gone by t'he boards,
replaced by this "cocktail party circuit" campus.
However, we feel that our Faculty can down more
cocktails, do the twist longer and make more conquests
behind the divan than any other faculty on campus. Why
don't you come out to our Aggie "cocktail party" on
Saturday, January 18, and try to prove us wrong?
Sub IS or 30
Why did the students at UBC refuse to accept the
only sound and practical way of financing the construction of the soon-to-be SUB? Was it because they could
not afford an increase in AMS fees of $5, or was it because they failed to realize the fact that a loan paid off
in 30 years yields to the persons providing the money
almost $2 million in interest? Obviously, anyone with
the slightest knowledge must be aware that the quicker
one pays off borrowed money, the less the total interest.
Students at UBC have not yet learned that to sacrifice
now, to the tune of $5, will not only save the students
in future years a great deal of money, but will enable
these same students opportunities to develop much-
needed student facilities.
ri.yhe error in judgment, on the part of the students,
regarding the financial aspects of the SUB, has seriously
endangered the grant from food services. Food services
have officially stated that if the students do not resolve
to pay off the debt in fifteen years, the money allocated
for food service facilities in the Student Union Building
will be directed elsewhere. Such a step would place on
the AMS and ultimately each student the task of paying
. an additional $775 thousand.
Why should we pile upon ourselves ah added burden
to restrict ourselves to paying off a debt for 30 years,
when we can save money by paying slightly more per
student per year for fifteen years? The only answer to
this entire problem is to increase our AMS fees. The
opportunity to dc just this will be afforded to each of
us when a referendum dealing specifically with this subject will be put before you. Think, weigh the facts and
you will come to one conclusion: the right one, I hope.

Dean's message
ANYTIME you're ready, Gertie.
University agriculture 1964
OINK, OINK
BY  DEAN   B.   A.   EAGLES
It will be 50 years next
August 1st since Dr. Klinck,
first Dean of Agriculture
and later President, came to
the University as its first appointee after the President,
the late Dr. Wesbrook, to undertake the task of planning
and developing the Faculty
of Agriculture as on integral
part of the University. The
first class in Agriculture was
admited in the fall of 1917
and since that time more than
1500 graduates have received
the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Agriculture, of
whom 25 percent have proceeded to advance degrees.
Many of our graduates hold
important research and administrative posts in agriculture, and only in Canada
but throughout the world.
Sixty-six percent of the
graduates have remained in
British. Columbia and seventeen per cent are in other
provinces of Canada. A large
proportion of the remainder
have been students from other
countries who are now contributing to the advancement
of agriculture in their native
lands. In the Faculty of Agriculture we are the heirs of a
great tradition and we have a
maturity and confidence based
in the main on the evidence
of the attainments of our
graduates through out the
world .
As the Facouty tackles the
dilemmas of University education in 1964, it must equate
the past with the future and
we in agriculture are particularly conscious that much
of the past will not have a
parallel in the future. Nevertheless, it is clear that we
must continue to concentrate
on the great objectives: education and the guidance of
the agricultural community—
a community which is different today from what it was
in 1914 and which must be
still different tomorrow if it
is to keep pace with our
changing world. We must continue unremitting research into the problems of argricul-
ture and the application of
our findings to meet the eco-
mic and social conditions  as
they continue to unfold. We
enjoy a unique position within the University for we must
not forget, and we must not
let others forget, that civilization cannot exist without
efficient food production and
that in the final analysis all
DEAN  EAGLES

things are purchased by food.
Our responsibility to society
as a whole is very great. We
must continue to pioneer an
educational approach which
to reflect the society which
we  exist  to   serve.
Agriculture today is a very
challenging and dynamic segment of the world's economy.
It stands on new ground
reached by the discoveries of
agricultural science which is
concerned with the application of the physical, biological and social sciences to the
production, processing and
marketing of agricultural
crops. Regardless of the speed
with whcih new discoveries
are being made and the tremendous range of knowledge
which they cover, the agricultural scientist—and the student of agricultural science—
must not permit himself to
narrow his horizin to a single
aspect of his particular field
but must be able to see his
problem as a part of a whole.
Today, individual scientific
disciplines per se are drifting apart and becoming in
many ways more strictly vocational, thus leaving an intellectual void which consti
tutes a fundamental weakness in our society. The agricultural scientists must recognize this situation and its
significance. As intellectual
disciplines become increasingly specialized and fragmented, a trend which is occurring whether we like it or
not, we in agriculture must
take a broader view of the
role of the sciences in the
community as we apply the
results of scientific resarch to
agricultural practice. Unless
this is done, the development
of agricultural science will
be hindered in an indirect
way by its effect on the outlook of scientists attempting
to determine the role which
their particular discipline
should play and directly by '
discouraging research endeavours which should hasten
the acceptance and application of the findings of science
to the benefit of the community at large.
Modern agriculture requires
highly trained personnel to
put into uractice the new industrial dimensions provided
by research. We should never
permit ourselves to be diverted from emphasizing the research challenge, nor should
we ever forget that in meeting this challenge we must
reflect the society which we
exist to serve. It is our role as
a Faculty within the University to be the guardian of intellectual standards and intellectual integrity and at the
same time provide for the dissemination and practical application of the body of learning and agricultural knowledge to the ultimate benefit
of both producer and consumer in British Columbia,
Canada, or any other part of
the world. We must make our
contribution to the building
of what President Wesbrook
described as "a provincial
University without provincialism." /    .

Crisis coming?
Wheat sales
showing way
Only a few on this rich continent appreciate the seriousness of the world food shortage which only has reality for
two-thirds of the world's three
and one-half billion people. We
are too far removed from the
Middle and Far East, and South
America, where starvation is a
matter of everyday living, to
realize the role and significance of Agriculture now and
in the future.
Up to the present, the existence of a grain surplus in
North America has slowed
agricultural progress. Society,
not the farmer, has been sent
to underdeveloped countries
and we have said complacently,  "We are doing enough."
But have we done enough?
Can we do more?
What is the role of Agriculture   in   the  future?
Two events occurred last
year which help answer these
questions. They were: (1) the
World Food Congress held in
Washington, June 4-18 and (2)
Canadian wheat sales to Communist China and Russia.
In the words of S. T. Krish-
naswamy, Secretary General of
the Congress, the World Food
Congress represents "the greatest crusade against want in
history," achieving full expansion with the gathering of one
thousand delegates from one
hundred countries.
Page Three
Outstanding address
Delegates examined and determined measures necessary
to overcome hunger and malnutrition, stimulating the cooperation of governments and
individuals in this fight against
hunger. One of the outstanding addresses made at the Congress was that Professor A. J.
Toynbee. He started by saying
that man is engaged in three
educational campaigns: against
war, against disease, and
against hunger. Concerning
population, he stated, "We
have been god-like in our
planned breeding of our domesticated plants and animals,
but we have been rabbit-like
in our unplanned breeding of
ourselves."
"Maximum- wel fare, not
not maximum papulation, is
bur human objective," he continued. Finally, to master
the problem of hunger, he emphasized two forms of education are required: (1) politi-|
cal—"to   give   to  the   interest '
of the human race as a whole
a decisive priority over the interests of one's own particular
section of it" (2) voluntary
birth rate regulation—to match
the present reduction of the
death rate.
It is apparent that the agriculturalist must assume an international role, and unless the
first form of education is accomplished, scientists will not
be allowed the chance of feeding the world's population. Unless the second form of education is accomplished, the Mal-
thusiah prediction must inevitably prove true!
Can we increase world food
production? According to the
Congress, the "potential for
increasing food production is
substantial," but those regions
in which more food and better
diet are required are precisely
the same areas in which population is likely to increase
most.
Surplus  disappeared
UBC dairy gets big jump
The remarkable -fact to be
noted in the case of the Soviet
Union is that this wheat has
gone to a vast country with
enormous agricultural potential, not to one of the poorer
nations of the East—yet our
surplus has virtually disappeared. This seems to show
how, small our supposedly
large wheat reserves ere when
it comes to feeding the world's
people.
Besides this, the United
States has realizedl the economic wisdom of the sale, and
has adopted the policy of wheat
sales,    to      the     communist
countries.
The importance of Agriculture in the economy is thus
being fully- realized. Most certainly, it is not a vain hope,
but a very real one, that before
the end of the century there
will indeed be a revolt in societies' attitude toward agriculture, when all mankind will
understand the significance of
the agriculturist in solving the
funlamental problems — population growth and utilization
of natural resources—of humanity.
Young bunny to tell
a hare raising story
It seems there was this boy rabbit who visited this girl
rabbit quite frequently—in fact, every day. He would
knock on the door and say, "It's your bunny, honey," and
she would let him in. There was an old hare nearby, watching this procedure, who decided it must be good thing, and
that he had better get in on it. He went to the girl rabbit's
house a little earlier than the boy rabbit one day, and
knocked on the door. He said, "It's your bunny, honey,"
and she let him in. When the boy rabbit came along, he
knocked on the door and said, "It's your bunny, honey,"
but the girl rabbit said, "Oh, I can't come just now, I'm
having a hare do."
Field house
to show oft
aggie display
The feature attraction of the
1964 Open House will again be
lodged in the Fieldhouse—the
Faculty of Agriculture Ois-
lay. Since early fall, the Aggies have been hard at work
planning and coordinating displays engulfing the fields of
professional Agriculture.
Contrary to the ideas of the
opinionated  masses,   these  exhibits    will    not    consist    of:
methods   of   extracting   mam-
mary secretions, removal of an
animal's  biological  waste products,  or the  stripping of the
protective coverings of the domestic fowl. The displays will
tend   to   reflect   the   methods,
purposes, facilities  and  knowledge   used  by   the  agrologist
and scientist of tomorrow,  today's Aggies.   The   demonstrations are designed to illustrate
to the visitor the wide variety
of   facilities    associated   with
agriculture  and  to provide an
insight into the application of
scientific    principles     to    the
technical and commercial  processes   of   agriculture   and  its
accompanying   industries.  The
field    of    agriculture    engulfs
business,     farming,    research,
food    technology,    marketing,
management,     education    and
extension. The agriculture display will be divided into individual    departmental   exhibits^
pertaining only to the specific
field,   a   general  overall   agriculture   display,    a    show    of
slides and, of course, a barbe-
que. The barbeque is and has
been one of the highlights of

Considerable effort and
thought has already gone into
the displays with much more
work yet to be done. Drafts
of exhibit plans, estimation of
costs, signs and banners, and
special needs and requirements
are being finalized. The remaining time prior to March
6, 7 and 8th is being utilized
in construction of displays, and
the polishing of the basic ideas
for final approval.
The exhibitions should be
both interesting and educational to all who attend, and the
Faculty of Agriculture extends
an invitation to all on campus
as well as the public to pay a
visit to the Fieldhouse during
Open House, 1964.
Gov t proposes
study grant plan
VIENNA (CUP) — Deserv-
ng Austrian students will get
:tudy grants of from $200-to
"400 a year with the expected
massage of a special bill
ihrough the Austrian National
Council.
Only conditions are financial
leed, reasonable marks and a
jtart on studies no more than
ten years after leaving secondary school.
Agriculture students are
working on a revolutionary
new development. A keen student of Animal Breeding is importing the spermatozoa of the
Red Kangaroo of Australia for
crosses with UBC dairy cows.
The Red Kangaroo was chosen
because of its unusual sex life
and the unusual development
of the young.
When a  baby red kangaroo
is born, it weighs approximately   one-half   an   ounce.   After
birth, it crawls (guided by an
unknown   force)   through   the
mother's hair until it falls into
the pouch. He eventually finds
the   nipple  of   the   mammary
gland and begins to suckle. The
mother   kangaroo   usually   becomes   pregnant   again  immediately   but   the   embryo  does
not develop until after the first
baby is out of the pouch. The
baby   kangaroo   in the   pouch
grows,  as does  the mammary
gland   he   suckles.   When   the
youngster   is   old   enough   to
walk, he leaves the pouch but
feeds by   putting  his  head  in
the   pouch   and   suckling   the
large teat. Meanwhile, the embryo develops, the second baby
is   born,   and   crawls   to   the
pouch. He falls in and suckles
on   the next  teat.  Meanwhile,
again, the mother kangaroo becomes pregnant and the third
embryo is waiting to develop.
The crucial characteristic of
the female kangaroo is that the
butterfat per cent of the mammary glands are radically different.   The   "big   udder"   for
the big baby is low in fat content;  the  little udder for  the
little baby is high in  fat content.
Animal breeders hope, by
crossing the Red Kangaroo
with Ubyssey Ayrshires, that
the four spigots of the udder
will produce: (1) homogenized
milk, (2) whipping cream, (3)
skim milk, and (4) half and
half, thus revolutionizing the
dairy industry.

Gentlemen:
Just received your superheated letter in regards to the
bill which I owe. You said you
thought the bill should have
been paid a long time ago, and I
you could not understand why
it was not — well, I will enlighten you.
In 1955, I bought a sawmill
on credit. In 1956, an oxen
team and a timber cart, two
ponies and a breach loading
shotgun, a wire tester and a
$25 Colt revolver. Also, two
fine razor back hogs and all
on that bloody instalment plan.
In 1957, the mill burned
down and didn't leave a lousy
thing. One of my ponies died
and I lent the other to a red-
sweatered fink who starved it
to death, and then I joined the
John Birch Society.
In 1958, my father died and
my brother" was lynched for
horse stealing; a railroader
visited my daughter and I had
to pay $88 for a doctor to keen
the developing embryo from
becoming a relative of mine.
In 1959, my boy got the
mumps, and they went down in
him and the doctor had to castrate him in order to save
his life. Then later, I went
fishing and the boat turned
over and I lost the biggest catfish I ever saw, and two of my
boys drowned, neither being
the one that had been castrated.
In 1960, my wife ran away
with the hired hand and left
me a pair of twins for a souvenir. Then I married the
hired girl to keep down the
expenses.
In 1961, 1 was burned out
and then took to drinking. I
didn't stop until all I had left
was a Waterbury watch and
kidney trouble. Then, for
sometime, all I did was wind
my watch and run for the John.
The next year, I decided to
try again, so I bought a manure
spreader and a Deering binder
and a threshing machine, all
on credit, and along came
a tornado and blew everything
into the next county.
At the present time, if it
costs more than $2.75 to enter
the outhouse, I would have to
vomit, yet you say you could
cause me  trouble.
For, you see, that $2.75 and
my barn-cleaning clothes are
going to get me into the
Farmer's Frolic on Saturday,
' and you won't get this letter
until Monday, so thanks for
everything.
Yours  for  more  credit,
Billy Bull

A  young lady,  about seven
months   pregnant,    got    on   a
tram  car  and   sat   down.   She
noticed a man smiling and, be
ing   humiliated,   promptly
changed her  seat, only to  see
lie seemed more amused thar
ever.    When    at    her    fourth
change he burst into laughter,
she complained to the conductor,   and he   had the   man   arrested. When the case came up
in   court,   the  judge   asked  if
he had anything to say. "Well,"
he -replied,  "it   was like  this.
When the lady came into the
tram car, she sat down under
an  advertisement which  read,
'Gold   Dust  Twins   Coming.'  I
couldn't   help   smiling;   when
she   changed  her  seat to   one
under   'Use   Sloan's   Liniment

more amused than ever. Then
she   changed her   seat   to one

one  under   'Goodyear  Rubber

"Case   dismissed,"   said   the
judge.
REFLECTION
Some reflections on Agriculture as seen by a first-year
student:
• The cold, unfriendly feeling one usually has on registration day—quickly dispelled
once you fall into the warmth
of the common room—fall, I
mean trip over' the briefcases
outside on the floor.
• Largest female enrolment
—wow!
• Frosh Orientation — the
night after the day before, with
a big head.
• Barn Dance—foot stomp-
ing\ Aggie-yelling smashing
hangover.
• Oops, midterms — I almost forgot.
• Next, the onslaught of a
great fear-—Christmas exams—
facing the new year with great
apprehension—marks— mental
hangover.
• Oh well, the FROLIC will
cause our spirits to rise on
Saturday night—Oh, what a
hangover I predict for Sunday.

On Aggies and Fit'is
A tremulous Fifi on campus arrived
With moo-moo eyes limpid, and wide open heart,
Her innocence showed in each terrified step,
As she unknowingly registered to take Aggie Mech.
Now, Aggie Mechanics, a.s anyone knows,
Are the brawniest men e'er to wear Aggie Clothes.
Their strength is renowned in the Boat race
And Engineers quake a.t their terrible pace.
On to her classes went the lovely Fifi
But she came out soon looking tearful and weepy.
Let this be a lesson to all sweet young things
There's a difference 'tween piston and jelly rings.
Among the Aggies are numbered Five
Who are tall and handsome, and full of drive.
They scourge the campus with loads of manure
And keep themselves strong with gallons of beer.
Poor Fifi didn't know her fate
When the Dirty Five a.sked 'her for a  date.
For the Frolic it was, and she gladly accepted
Knowing not that her endurance was soon to be. tested.
On the night of the Ball, the Aggies were tardy,
Jn the Arms they'd been, getting set for the party!
With a roar and a clatter they came in a truck—
Fifi's arrival at the Frolic was nothing but luck.
Oi the evening's horrors nothing was said,
Fifi spent the next day with ice on her head.
Her tears were  elciquent  as  she withdrew  from Mech
To play it cool by taking Home Ec!

Ninety
students
win BAC
About 90 students have been
bounced from the University
for unsatisfactory academic
work, UBC Registrar J. E. A.
Parnall announced Monday.
He said that of the 670 students who were put on probation in September, some passed all their examinations and
the majority passed three or
more.
"The fact that only 90
didn't make it is very encouraging, although it is not good
when university students have
to be scared into working," he
said.
The students were informed
of the administration's decision to oust them by letter and
telegram during the Christmas
holidays.
According to the terms of
the probation, a student in
this category can be required
to withdraw at any time during the academic year for unsatisfactory academic work.
He said the administration
was very pleased with the outcome of the probation, and
that it would be continued for
students whose studies are unsatisfactory, but who qualify
for admission or re-admission
to the university.
S. Rickers told students
he had proof that flying saucers were spacecraft from
Mars and were the product of
a civilization 2,500 years in advance of ours.
He said Christ was only one
of 12 Messiahs sent to earth to
help humans progress, that the
star of David was actually a
spaceship, and that the angels
were levitating spacemen.
Their latest visits were
prompted by excess radiation
released into space by atomic
testing, he said.
He charged them with stealing large quantities of water
from U.S. reservoirs to combat
Martian dust storms.
The grey haired engineer
said Canadian and U.S. governments were suppressing news
of saucer sightings.
Rickers admitted he had
never seen a spaceman but
said he had talked to many
who  had.

Birds lose
Hamber Cup
By GEORGE REAMSBOTTOM
The hockey Thunderbirds drew crowds but lost fans
over the past weekend.
Thanks  to   the  promotional
razamataz  most  of  the   2,000
students   attending   the   games
enjoyed themselves.
BIRDS BOMBED
Game scores were 6-1 and
5-1, respectively as the highly
skilled U of A Golden Bears
won both games to take the
Hamber Cup total-goal series
11-2.
Both games were featured
by the scoring ineptness of
UBC forwards whose deepest
penetrations came when they
shot the puck into the Bears'
end and then raced in after it.
Unfortunately by the time
the Bird hopefuls skated to
where the puck had been, the
Bears had usually recovered
the same black disc and were
charging back down the ice.
Defensively the Birds' porous defense repeatedly allowed Bear forwards to break
in on UBC goalie Jack Harris
who made 34 saves in each
game. Alberta's Dale Harder
was only called upon to make
13 saves Friday and 18 Saturday.
TOP  SCORER
Leading scorer for the Bears
during the series was forward
John Aubin, who netted three
Friday and added a single Saturday. UBC's only scores came
from Pete Kelly on Friday and
Garry Morris who scored Saturday on a solo rush from his
own end.
Most fans seemed dissap-
pointed at the Birds' inferior
play and vowed they would
not return until UBC proved
it was at least capable of keeping close to their opposition.
Approached for a comment
after Saturday's loss Coach
Dennis Selder just kept mumbling about mistakes while
promising hours of hard practice in hockey fundamentals
for his Birds.
In other WCIAA hockey
action the U of M defeated
U of S 3-2.

Western Washington took a
26 to 11 win over UBC wrestlers during the weekend meet
at UBC.
UBC wrestlers managed
three decisions in the nine
events.
Mauri Hejelt (UBC) won
when Glen Payne (Wash.) was
disqualified for using illegal
holds.
Bert Taylor (UBC) got a decision over Bill Collins (Wash),
in the heavyweight class.
The most exciting bout for
UBC was the hard-fought
match between Rod Carrow
(UBC) and Terry Lane (Wash).
18 6 pound Carrow had
moved up to the heavyweight
division (191 pounds and up)
to replace injured Cann Christiansen. "Carrow won a decision
over Lane" said Peter Smith,
manager.
UBC lost decisions in the 115
pound and 123 pound classes.
They were pinned in the 137,
147, 167 pound class.

BURPY'S
EYE VIEW
OF BIRDS
By  DENIS  STANLEY
Ubyssey Sports  Editor
Well, UBC sportsmen managed to do it again.
They had a full agenda of
sports this weekend and managed to pull off only one win.
The Thunderbird Basketball team managed to split the
weekend games with Saskatchewan.
Genial Bill Sturn had a
good idea for getting the
crowds out to his hockey
games, but they won't go
again
Why? Because they not
only came to dance, skate,
etc., they came to see hockey
and they didn't get a chance.
The T'Birds played a lousy
game, both nights.
Alberta walked right over
them to sew up the Hamber
Cup for another year.
Coach Dennis Selder certainly has the potential for
one of Canada's top collegiate
teams, but he hasn't got them
to produce yet.
It may sound like sour
grapes to go out on a limb and
shoot down the team from
their first performance, but in
the case of the hockey birds
I think it is justified.
The much-flouted Canadian
Intercollegiate Athletic News
service may have been speculating last week when they
placed British Columbia
seventh in the nation. This
week they have placed B.C.
sixth. By the time they get
the results of the Edmonton
games here they will move Edmonton near the top and place
UBC down where they should
be (in 10th).
A terrible exhibition of
hockey to bring to the students who expect so much
from the local team.
If it hadn't been for Don
Rodgers, who came down from
Father Bauer's Olympians,
and for Jack Harris, who
worked so hard in the goal,
the score could have been
even more fatal.
The forward strings were
lazy, the defence was weak,
the power line made no appearance of being powerful.
Peter Kelly turned in another fine performance on the
offence, but he can't win the
game by himself.
• •    •
Ski Bum reports having
pulled 25 casualties off Seymour jtlhis weekend. By
George, he was right. And I
didn't get married last Friday.
• •    •
Milt Dunnell and the other
experts may be right when
they predict Father David
Bauer's Olympics boys to
place second. But I would
question their prediction on
who they will be second to.
I keep wondering who
Father Bauer has cut to make
his quota of 17 players.
Mickey McDowell stayed behind to pass exams and Don
Rodgers is playing for the
Birds. I hear that Rick Broadbelt is assistant equipment
manager.

Cheer up, Bill, we all had a
good party anyway.

Fisher lands Husky win
By DAVE CARLSON
The weekend battle of the basketball giants
decided little.
UBC Thunderbirds and University of Saskatchewan Huskies split a weekend two-game
series in Saskatoon.
On Friday evening, 6ft. llin. Orville Fisher
pumped in a pair of last-minute free throws to
help his Huskies climb past the Birds, 63-62.
UBC led 37-31 at half-time.
Hustling John Cook was top-man for the
Birds "with 17 points. Ron Erickson with 12,
and Dave Way and Bill McDonald with 11, also
scored in double figures.
Saskatchewan's big four of Orville Fisher,
Gary Goble, Terry Little, and Gale Downey
scoured all but five Husky points.
Led by Bill McDonald and Ken Macdonald
with 18 and 16 points, respectively, UBC
downed U of Sask, 70-65.
UBC was never headed in the game. On
Friday night, the lead changed hands twenty
times.
bill Mcdonald
. potent marksman
University of Saskatchewan now leads the
WCIAA with 5 victories and one defeat. UBC's
3-1 record places it behind the University of
Alberta (Edmonton) Golden Bears, who sport a
4-0 record.

UBC meets the Golden Bears next weekend
in Edmonton.
In other Intercollegiate action, the Golden
Bears beat the University of Manitoba in two
games. Friday's score was a close 72-71, and

bat .500
in hoop
By BOB BANNO
Western Washington freshmen hoopsters humiliated UBC
frosh Friday night at War Memorial Gym, trouncing the
Braves 73-45. Saturday, they
beat Surrey 85-74.
Displaying a frustratingly effective controlled offence,
Western jumped to an immediate lead and never looked back.
Four of the six players they
brought to UBC hit double
figures in scoring.
Bill Humphries from Prince
of Wales High School led UBC
with 12 points and Winston
Churchill's Mark Churchland
added 10.
Two of the Braves' top players, Alberni's Alec Brayden
and Magee's Wayne Vollmer,
were held to three and zero
points, respectively, by the
tenacious Western defence.
One bright spot for Braves
coach Norm Watt was the
sparkling play of Pete Hubner
of Vernon who, although playing only a few minutes, scored
seven points.

What's doing
in Aluminum
FABRICATION?
Lots—because fabrication is an important part of Alcan's
business. About 15% of our ingot production is fabricated
in Canada into finished products. (The other 85% makes
a vital contribution towards Canada's export trade.) In our
own plants, we make semi-finished and some finished
products:
• At Kingston, Ont: (where this picture of an aluminum sheet rolling
mill was taken): Sheet, plate, foil, extrusions and tubing.
• At Arvida, P.Q.: Rod for wire production and other applications;
aluminum paint pigment.
• At Shawinigan, P.Q.: Wire, electrical cable, cable accessories.
• At Etobicoke, Ont.: Die castings, permanent mold castings and
sand castings.
• At Vancouver, B.C.: Extrusions, rod and wire, electrical cable.
Fabrication at Alcan is a challenging business, not only for
graduates in physical metallurgy and mechanical engineering,
but also for those in nearly all other engineering and many
science disciplines. A typical metallurgical problem might
involve development work in the fabrication and heat
treatment of Al-Mg alloys used in sheet plate and extrusions
for road and rail transport. Whatever your specialty, you
are likely to find challenging assignments at Alcan.
Please ask your Placement Officer for an
appointment to meet the Alcan representatives on January 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th.
The following booklets and information sheets are available at your
placement office: Presenting Alcan tb the University Graduate. / The
Role of the Physical Metallurgist in Alcan and its Associated Companies. / The Role of the Mechanical Engineer in Alcan and its Associated
Companies. / The Role of the Chemical and Extractive Metallurgist in
Alcan and its Associated Companies. / The Role of the Chemist in Alcan
