Frosh swell
ing campus
More than 3,500 freshmen are swelling UBC's enrolment to a record 14,300 students.
The class, second largest in UBC's history, will fall
just short of 1961 when 3,519 freshmen registered.
And according to assistant
director of the personnel department A, F. Shirran 40 per
cent of the class won't be back
to register in second year.
"Bvery year they just keep
failing," he said, "They're
smart enough to get in here,
but they're not smart enough to
In the next few years,
thousands of students who come
to UBC will be attending the
new junior two and four-year
colleges envisioned in the Macdonald Report.
UBC's standaras win rise, so
that the barely-passing, high-
school student will be refused
entry. University resources will
be freed for more graduate work
and a better-equipped undergraduate program.
The first steps in the raising
of standards have already toeeri
made. High school graduates
who had to write supplemental
examinations arc not allowed
The blow to BOO such students
was softened when a special
department of education committee gave them passing averages, even though they failed
one or two courses.
But the trend to higher stari-
lards will continue.
The 40 per cent of frosh who
will fail one or all of their
courses this year cost the university fantastic amounts. They
fill classes to overflowing, take
up professors' time, and distract
Last year's enrolment waa
13,800, a record at the time.
In 1965, the results of the
post-war ibalby boom will be
felt. Six thousand new students
will swarmn to B.C. universities.
UBC population by 1971 will
level off at 17,000 according to
the Macdonald Report.
Until after election
Watch professors' politricks
If your professor skips
most of his classes before
Sept. 30, don't worry.
He's probably out campaigning.
Or, if his lectures sound
like a political line, they probably are.
No less than four UBC pro-.
lessors are running for four
separate parties in the provincial election. It is an vm-
precedented outburst of poli-.
7\ical activity.
Maybe the experience
they picked up in the Back
Mac campaign    last    spring
went to their heads.
Another 50 professors are
said to be working actively
for one or other ot the parties.

TIME-SAVING PROCESS that has been added this year gets out AMS cards immediately. AMS spokesmen sav that students who line up won't have to line
up later in the year as they did in previous years. First picture shows the process from the camera man's side. The second is from the student's side.
When four pictures have been taken, the strip of film is taken out of the camera. It rolls through a plasticizing machine and is sealed, shown in the
fifth photo. Then the student goes on the next lineup.

UBC again
Premier Bennett has shafted
UBC again.
UBCs traditional Cairn ceremony, marking the Great Trek
of 1922, will have to compete
with both the provincial election and a B.C. Lions-Calgary
Stampeders football game.
The colorful torch-light procession of members of UBC's
senate, board of governors, and
student officials, will assemble
at the Cairn on the Main Mall
at 8 p.m., Sept. 30.
The Cairn was built from
rocks broght to campus by the
trekkers following a downtown
parade and tramp through bush
to the present site of the Cairn
in 1922. Each trekker deposited
his rock as a symbol of his
determination that a university
be built on the site.
Dr. John Macdonald and
Chancellor Phyllis Ross will
address the ceremony.
Dr. Norman MacKenzie, past
president of UBC will also attend.
Following the ceremony a
special reception for freshman
will be held in Brock Hall.
Here, freshmen will get a
chance to meet members of the
senate, board and administration.
In case of rain, the ceremony
will be held in Memorial Gym.
They tell us
Its a change
for the better
Third and fourth year frosh have probably noticed it
by now.
There's   a   slight  "U"T"   ;-
the registration procedure.
Now it's possible to stand in
twice the number of lines and
visit one more building while
collecting various cards, forms
and bits of errata.
Kenneth O. Leitch, the man
responsible for the change,
says despite the lineups the
whole system is designed to
speed registration.
Leitch, co-ordinator of activities, has installed four polaroid
cameras to snap pictures of
students for the Alma Mater
Society identification cards.
Previously students had
their pictures taken and then
the film was sent away to be
It took several weeks to find
out whether pictures failed to
come out and many students
had to be rephotographed.
Now, with the polaroid cameras and a quick developing
process, Leitch says students
will be able to have their cards
almost as fast as the cameras
can take the pictures.
It works this way:
After students finish filling
out course cards in the Buchanan academic super-market
they rush to the battery of
four polaroid cameras in the
Fine Arts building.
A picture is taken, developed and placed on a small identification card containing name
registration number and date
of birth.
After that the whole mess is
placed between two sheets of
plastic and sealed.
Leitch says the cameras cost
about $600 each and the cost of
each card works out to roughly
30 cents.

Trek trick
• is ancient
UBC story
UBC students rival the
ancient  Israelis   for trekking.
First, it was 1922. To make
the campus at Point Grey a
reality, students collected 56,-
000 signatures on a petition
paraded downtown, spoke at
meetings, and marched over a
horse trail to the new campus.
^ It worked: UBC got not only
a cairn, but also a grant of $1.5
million to get the campus built.
Then, in 1955, students de-
*" cided there were not enough
dorms or other facilities.
Result: another petition,
this time with 200,000 signatures, and another trek.
But last year.was the greatest trek of all. More than
* 6,000 Students inarched four
abreast through downtown
to the court house.

Part of the excitement of
being a UBC student is dodging the radar traps set up on
campus roads by the local

The police :use the traps,

student cars within the speed
Ard even though the traps
appear only or twice a week,,
the  threat  of a  $25  speeding
ticket  has   slowed   traffic.
Accident rate on campus has
been kept amazingly low for
the  volume   of traffic.
The RCMP hide behind
trees, trueks, and parked cars
with their traps.
They use ghost cars and
motorcycles, and once, they
hid their trap in a camping
rack atop a car parked on

it's too late.
Enginers driajpe themselves

green and aggies in blue.
In fact if you see any one of
these colors moving toward
you en masse, look out.
Although hazing is officially
out at UBC, large numbers of
this year's class will probably
find their way into some of
UBC's scenic lily ponds.
If the lily ponds are filled to
capacity with sodden freshmen you might find yourself
chained to a lamp post.
Others, of course, are prey
for the lily pond routine.

More  than   10,000   students are   hammering at   the
Buchanan Building doors.
Students who have waited up —	
to five hours finally get to the
head of the line;
They hand the prof, at the
desk their crumpled eligibility

"Sorry, buddy" says the professor, "It's my lunch time."
He gives the waiting students, the first 150 of them, a
number so they can be at the
head of the line when he gets
back from the faculty club.
The students are then allowed to twiddle their thumbs for
an hour.
Those, without numbers cannot go to the caf for their
lunch, because they will lose
their places.
And after getting into Buchanan to get courses approved,
there is still the AMS card
lineup and the Armoury form-
filling ordeal.
The Armoury closes at 4 p.m.
But there are 1,100 faculty
on campus, 650 of them in arts
and science.
Some students who had been

Then, they had to line up
outside the Fine Arts Building
to get their pictures taken for

So students lined up.
If they didn't line up, they
couldn't get into the Armoury
to pay their fees which helped
pay for the professor's lunch.
And while they were lined
up, the parking patrol was out
in full force.
Within 48 hours, they will
have to line up to pay their

Tuum Est. . .
Every year at this time, we write a Tuum Est editorial. We write all about school spirit, and the fine
tradition of student responsibility here at UBC, and about
what a grand feeling it is to know you're a part of this
fine institution. And we tell you about that fine student
motto, Tuum Est — it's up to you.
Only this year, we became disillusioned. When it
comes right down to it, there aren't really many things
around that are up to you.
There's nothing you can do about those exorbitant
bookstore prices. You can't change Sir Ouvry's one-way
street signs, »or move the parking lots closer, or get rid
of the mud or those annbying little men in the khaki
You can't help it if the provincial government
short-changes UBC and the fees go up, and you're in
classes with 400 others. After all, unless you're 19, they
won't let you vote, and even then, they call elections so
fast you don't have time to get on the voter's list.
You can't run for student council and change all
the graft in Brock (or absorb some of the grease yourself) , because the elections were last spring.
There's nothing you can do about that butter-
fingered quarterback, because they won't let frosh play
on varsity teams.
As a matter of fact, there's not really much point
in you being here. There's only a 50-50 chance you'll pass
anyway, so you're just wasting your time.
You'd be much better off out working for a living,
where the money's coming in, not going out. The girls
go for men with money. And employers will love you
(they hate those smart-alec college kids).
You wouldn't have to get up at 6:30 to walk miles
from the parking lot to make those ridiculous 8:30 classes.
You could watch TV and drink beer in the evenings instead of waiting in line for the library book they only
have one copy of, and then staying up half the night
reading it.
Come to think of it, why do kids come to college,
anyway? Tuum Est, hell. If it was up to us, we'd scrap
the whole idea.
..... for the tummy
Student mottos are one thing, and students
are another. Your first year, and as a matter of fact, all
four or five, can be a discouraging experience.
That's why we think there's not much point in a
lot of people being here in the first place.
* But for those few who have the right attitudes and
abilities, a lot can be accomplished in a year at college.
For them, the student motto comes naturally.
Frosh could try to learn how to study at university,
something quite different from high school. They could
learn how to write, and maybe how to read. Surprisingly
enough, a large proportion of first-year students can do
They could indulge in the kind of learning we think
is basic to a college education — the kind involved in our
so-called "extra-curricular" activities.
These are the many top-flight speakers who fill
campus classrooms every noon hour, talking about European Common Markets and the existence of Gods, and
the neuro-physiology of water beetles.
They are the discussion groups and seminars such
as Frosh Retreat, Academic Symposium, and Leadership
Conference. And they're the bull sessions in the Fraser
Arms, too (they don't throw too many teenagers out).
Frosh could gain a lot by taking active interest in
. student affairs — in the progress of the new student
union building, in our football and Olympic hockey teams,
in Model Parliament, and in student council activities.
That sort of thing is why they invented that slogan,
Tuum Est. A lot of things are up to you, really. That is,
if you're up to it. v

something was going wrong
when we got that lettetr in

strike songs of the starving
coal miners in the Thirties. I

them up with clubs and starve

Then, there were the girls,
Joe. We've got a grey hair

read a smug editorial on how
this is going to cost you $1600

flunk, regardless, and just exactly who the hell do you
think you are, anyway?
And you've got a little book
explaining the difference between the Chem building

"Tuum est'" means', and how
you should be humble and
proud because you've come into a heritage going all the way
back to the first Great Trek?
And you keep hearing about
how the Engineers will throw
you in the lily pond 47 times
a day and then ship you off
to Nanaimo in your pajamis?
And everybody laughed at
you because you couldn't find
the jcream for your coffee in
the cafeteria?
The list of small snoberies
and humiliations you may suffer because you are a freshman is endless. I could add

President's message

important role'
To all students coming to Point Grey for the first
time let me say warmly, "We welcome you."
To all returning students  11
send my congratulations on
your progress. .
I hope all of you have arrived
with new interests to be pursued in the all too brief years
to be spent on this campus.
Each student entering this
university assumes an important debt to. society. When he
pays his tuition fees he pays
only one-fifth to one-eleventh
of the cost of his education to
:he citizens of British Columbia.
In addition, most students
owe a debt to their parents and
families who have sacrificed a
great deal to ensure their presence on this campus.
Finally, each student Owes
it to himself to put his best
into acquiring a basic and durable education here, opening his
mind to new ideas which he
will encounter here thanks to
generations of scholars and citizens who have kept alive the
right to free enquiry in universities.
Not every corner of the globe
enjoys the freedom which is
You will enjoy an autonomy
in conducting your student organizations which is unknown
in many colleges and universities. I hope that you will use
it wisely, and with respect for
the rights of others.
Responsibility in the student
community was demonstrated
for all to see last year during
the great petition signing program throughout the province.
The students of UBC hold a
position of high respect in this
province; it was never higher
than last spring when they
undertook such an enthusiastic
but nevertheless responsible
role in informing the people
of this province about the University's goals and its needs.
Finally, let me say how much
I look to the students to carry
the "Tuum Est" spirit of their
predecessors who built playing
fields here bofore the move
from Fairview in 1925, and
subsequently built the stadium,
Brock Hall, the Women's Gymnasium and The War Memorial
Gymnasium. I- hope you may
see the proposed Student Unidh
Building rising on our campus
before you graduate.
You have earned a great
opportunity to study here. I
envy you as you start out on
this great adventure. The happiest days of you lives lie immediately ahead. I wish you
great success.

You won't see UBC president John Macdonald very
often but he's working for.
He is the man who blue-
pinted the future of higher
education in B.C., with the
now famous Macdonald Report.
And he has pledged himself
to making UBC a first class
During his short stay at
UBC he has fought for a better deal for the university
from the government.
He has earned the respect
of students as shown in their
all-out support of his plans
for higher education in last
year's Back Mac campaign.
The soft - spoken, 45-year-
old president is now working
on another Macdonald report
on the future of UBC itself.
Dr. Macdonald has unlikely qualifications for the post
of president of a major university. A graduate in dentistry from the University of
Toronto, he was professor of
microbiology and director of
the Forsythe Dental Infirmary at Harvard University
before coming to UBC in
In 1955, he wrote the report which has led to the
establishment of a dental faculty at UBC.
Under Macdonald, UBC
will become the core of a network of colleges scattered
throughout the province.
It will become primarily a
graduate school, one of the
top in Canada.
The undergraduate program will stay, but students
must be prepared to face
higher entrance standards,

President John Macdonald estimates by that time, there

It will replace the'scattered,

Prof wins
top award
A n assistant professor of
chemistry at UBC has won a
top international award.
Dr. James Trotter was
awarded the Meldola Medal of
the Royal Institute of Chemistry of Great Britain.
The medal is awarded annually to the chemist under 30
years of age who has done
original and distinguished research work.
Professor Charles McDowell,
head of the chemistry department, said it is the first time
a chemist from outside Britain
has won the award.
Dr. Trotter joined the UBC
faculty in 1960.
His work deals with x-ray
crystallography, afield of
chemistry concerned with the
structure of large molecules.

Quantity has been the theme of the first week of
UBC Thunderbird football practices, while this week will be
devoted to quality for the Thunder birds-Montana game Saturday at Empire Stadium.
The first practice September-
1 brought 58 hopefuls out to
camp in what was described as
reasonable condition. In the
spring, a special summer conditioning program was handed
out and most players arrived
at camp resembling fitness.
Gravel-voiced head coach
Frank Gnup has the nucleus of
last year's club to build on,
though there will be some
question marks at centre and
the end spots.
Notable absences include last
year's star quarterback Barry
Carkner (through ineligibility)
and Peter Kempf (whose magic
toe has added -lustre to the B.C.
Lions' lineup).
Backfield coach Bob Hind-

in tow to fill the void left by
Carkner. They are Dick Gibbons and Roger Hardy.
Gibbons, who played a defensive half position last year and
was Carkner's understudy, Is
an experienced passer.
Hardy, an all-star with the
North Shore Cougars of the Junior Big Four League last season, is also strong in the passing department.
Bob Sweet and Norm Thomas
appear to have the Inside track
for right and left half berths,
respectively, but Mel Petrle,
Ken Danchuck and Eric Savic
are also in the running.

At tackle, the other co-captain Roy Shatzko resides, while
Peter Lewis, Don MacRitchle

Robin Dyke, Tommy Thompson, Jim Everett and Ian Donald have been nominated to
contest the end positions.
John Reykdal and John Ekles
are working at centre.
In the rookie department,
guards Joe Haddock and Dick
