WARNING: Flunk twice and you're out
If you have failed one year
at   UBC,   don't   fail   another
If you do, according to UBC
Registrar J. E. A. Parnall, you
won't be able to return next
And if you're a freshman,
make sure you pass at least
three courses this year, otherwise you won't be back either.
Parnall said the tougher requirements, effective immediately are the first step in a
plan to make UBC the senior
university and restrict it
largely to graduate and professional training.
He said UBC will admit
only a few freshmen when
Simon Fraser and other colleges are operational. "The
requirements will become
even stricter," he said.
"A student at any level of
University study who fails for
a second time, whether repeating a year or in a later
year will be required to withdraw," he said.
But they may be readmit
ted after a period of at least
a year if they appeal to the
Senate and the appeal is supported by the Committee on
Admissions of the Faculty concerned.
Parnall said the New academic requirements will improve the standard of instruction as well as the pass-percentage average because professors will be able to teach
to the top of the class instead
of the bottom, and because the
number of borderline students
will be decreased.
In  order to be  eligible  to
attend UBC in the future it
is necessary to have at least
a 60 per cent average in
junior matriculation and have
passed a full set of government examinations.
Consideration will be given
to students who for some good
reason are not in this category.
"We have noted that only
about 50 per cent of students
with a standing of 50-60 per
cent in high school have a
chance of passing first year

AMS wants
more money
from gov't
More "money for marks", interest free loans for students
and more bursaries were asked for in a brief discussed with
the provincial government yesterday by AMS president
Malcolm Scott. r :	
SUB planner
Feltham quits
The brief was sent to t h e
government Dec. 12. Monday,
Scott discussed the issues with
education minister Leslie Peterson, and two other cabinet
"We had an excellent reception," Scott said. "But no
politician gives everything in
the first go."
From the tone of the conversations, Scott said, he
doubted whether all the AMS
demands would be met.
The brief called for the "government to provide full tuition fees for students who
make first class marks.
The brief also asked for
scholarships equal to one-half
the tuition fees of second class
The submission said the
money-for-marks plan, whereby students presently get
half their tuition fees for first
class marks and one-third for
second class marks, has failed
to keep up with rising univer
sity enrolment.
The brief asked that the pro
vincial student loan fund be
interest-free until after the
student graduates, and that,
more bursaries be made available to needy students.
Scott said he doubted whether the increase in awards to
first class students, and the interest-free loan plan would be
instituted this year.
But he was hopeful that the
number of second year s t u-
dents receiving money for
marks will be increased, and
that further bursary funds will
be available.
More   than   4,000   students
have made use of the student
loan fund to date, and loans

to a startled student council
Monday night.
With a second fee referendum on the financing of the
multi-million dollar SUB project slated for the second week
in January, Feltham's sudden
resignation threw council into
an uproar.
"I haven't had a chance to
discuss the resignation with
Dean in detail," AMS president
Malcolm Scott said afterwards.
"But I don't accept it.
"I don't believe he has fulfilled his obligations."
Feltham said his resignation
is effective Jan. 6. Feltham has
been working on SUB for three
years, and has been the main
force behind the building's success.
He said academic pressures
prompted his resignation. He
said he wished to go on into
graduate studies, and therefore
felt he had to increase his

Olympics can
finish in top place
Ubyssey Puck Scribe
Can Canada's student Olympic Hockey team win a gold
medal at the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck next month?
This reporter thinks it can.
if! J"" V,-,V-^
It has been about six months
since Father David Bauer
assembled a group of university students at UBC to learn to
do one thing well — play
hockey well enough to bolster
our sagging international hockey reputation.
And it looks like he might
have succeeded.
In six short months he has
put together one of the best-
conditioned hockey teams in
this country. And in this statement we include Canada's two
NHL teams.
Bauer has turned out a team
that spends less time in the
penalty box than its opponents.
He has turned out a team
that can play under international rules, a team which has
shattered the myth of the invincibility of the highly conditioned and highly trained
"new" European teams.
He has turned out a team
which has lost only eight of
30 games in an exhibition ser
ies completed last weekend.
And he has done it in the incredibly short time of six
Bauer has matched his team
against two of the top amateur
teams in the world — the
Czechs and the Swedes. And he
has beaten them both.
In three games against the
Czechs, the Olympians took
two, the first in Victoria ended
kills self
after failure
A student described as brilliant committed suicide after
failing his first UBC examination last month.
He drank from a beaker of
cyanide — almost certainly
filled from his UBC lab.
That is the story of Amrit
Pal Singh Virk, pieced together
by the city coroner's office,
RCMP, and UBC officials.
Virk was found dead in his
room at Fort Camp. He had
been dead for three days, when
nearby residents reported him
Only comment made by the
RCMP was that Virk had
placed second to last in an organic chemistry course, his
best subject.
"We are satisfied that this
failure caused Virk to kill himself," said RCMP corporal C.
J. Stewart.
Health Services head Dr. A.
M. Johnson said he was called
as soon as the body was found.
"But it was only to pronounce him dead," he said.
Virk, described as a brilliant
student, already had a bachelor and master's degree in
science from the University of
Officials would release no
further details or comments
about the incident.
3-2 and the third in Sudbury,
Ontario, was 4-0.
The second game, at Vancouver's fire-trap, the Forum, featured some of the worst defensive play and goaltending
the Olympians have displayed
all year. The Czechs took that
one 3-1.
In their two games with the
Swedes, the Olympians took
one game handily 6-3, and lost
the other 3-1.
While three out of five may
not seem like enough to win
the Olympic tourney, it must
be remembered that this was
the first time the Olympians
have met any team of international status.
By comparison, many members of both the Czech and the
Swedish teams have pl;ayed
more than 100 games in international competition.
Why should this team win
when others, most of them
more experienced, have failed
in the past?
In the past we've been sending a bunch of has-beens and
never-weres to Olympic and
World   championships.
They all had one thing in
common. They had played a lot
of hockey — and they were out
of  condition.
Bauer's team is a refreshing
change. They're in top condition. In all games played the
team has been skating just as
hard in the last ten minutes as
it did in the first ten.
And for a change the penalty balance favors the Canadians.
Needless to say, there are a
great many skeptics.
But there's a ready answer
to them.
Ask them who currently
holds the Olympic hockey
They'll tell you that the United States won in 1960.
Push them a bit further and
they'll admit — if they know
their hockey — that the I960
U.S. Olympic team was made
up almost entirely of university
students, and recent graduates.

'Students who are potential

some other institution," he
We eventually will set a
ceiling of growth, about 20,-
000, and allow the other colleges to absorb these students.
He cited the University of
California as an example of
this policy.
He said complete high-
school records of all students
will be considered before they
are admitted.
"It is likely that we would
refuse admission to anyone
who has a 60 per cent average,
but who has failed several
high-school courses."
If a freshman achieves less
than six units in academic
studies in the first year he will
not be eligible to re-enroll
until he has completed a full
grade 13 at a high school.
And a student who passes
less than nine units will only
be readmitted on probation
and can be asked to withdraw
at  any  time.
These two categories can
only re-enroll with the approval of the Senate.
"In the future we hope to
draw our students from the
third or fourth year at other
colleges and enroll them in
professional and graduate
faculties,"  said Parnall.
It is possible that these requirements will be changed
in the course of the next two
or three years, he said, "But
they will not become any
more lax.
"A failure average like that
we have experienced cannot
continue "
Simon Fraser Academy will
adopt much the same entrance
and re-admission requirements according to Professor
R. J. Baker, director of Academic planning.

not decided on any rigid rules,
but Dr. Gordon Shrum. and he
guessed that the requirements

Dr. Jennings was Director

Dr. Baker gave his reasons
for leaving:

opportunity to plan educational
programs," he said.
"A new university such as
Simon Fraser provides such an
opportunity for persons who
have ideas and wish to put

Fame (blush)
Newspaper people, being cynics by nature, are not
wont to give victory speeches. In the first place, they
usually have nothing to win; by some strange twist of
fate, the newspaper, which is the customary medium by
which ordinary people gain fame and recognition ("Look,
Martha, Joe had his picture in the paper!") is a veritable
desert as far as silver spoons and gold plaques and laurel
wreathes of its own goes.
Even if one paper wins some rare award, the opposition paper refers to it, with one-paragraph terseness, as
"that other paper" which has been recognized. Anyway,
these awards are always given by other newspapermen,
which is sort of incestuous when you think about it.
Then, too, newspapermen have to listen to victory
speeches by other people all the time — and if you've
heard one victory speech, you've heard 'em all. Now, ■
we've just been through God knows how many football
games over New Year's, and after every one, we are
subjected to that glorious spectre of Americana — the
coach — telling us how his boys were well-oiled machines,
and how this was a well-deserved victory.
Then these red-blooded stars are shown being hauled
triumphantly from the gridiron by 100,000 rich alumni and
beautiful women, and the President of the United States
sends his personal congratulations, and all that. Can you
think of anything more boring (sigh) ?
Anyway, what we're getting around to say is that if
you happen to come down to The Ubyssey office sometime this month, with that customary haughtiness of,
yours, don't be too put out if someone spits on you, or
tells you to stuff it, when you ask for a picture or a notice
or a front-page banner (people always want front-page

take a couple of 30 or 40-hour weeks grinding out the
old rag before our pride subsides sufficiently for us to
become bearable again.

of our hard-working staff, we shall give them the ultimate
recognition: we shall print their names in 10-point type,

names usually appear in.

Ubyssey man sifts past
LBJ's secret service ring
There he stood, just 15 feet

any  other man.

President Johnson the
image is awesome. President
Johnson the man is human.
Frighteningly human. How
can a mere human being cope
with the overwhelming responsibilities the president of
the United States faces?
• •    •
This   apparent   inadequacy
was what impressed me most
when I saw the President during one of his recent visits to
New York.
Mr. Johnson had come to
the city for the funeral of
former New York Governor
Herbert Lehman. It was the
President's first trip out of
Washington since he took the
country's  top  office.
The funeral was held at
Temple Emanu-El at 1 p.m.
At noon, 15 blocks of Fifth
Avenue were closed to traffic. More than 1,000 policemen flooded into the area surrounding the temple, which
is on Fifth Avenue at 66th
Police manned the barriers,
covered the roofs of buildings
in the area, and kept the public back more than a block
from the   temple's entrance.
• •    •
Using my Columbia Journalism School press card, I managed to get through the outer
cordons of police. Then I ran
into the secret service.
I was frisked several times
and although I didn't have a
special "working press" police
permit, I managed to bluff my
way into the group of reporters and photographers stationed in an enclosure just
outside the temple's entrance.
The other newsmen had po-
. . . powers of a god
lice permits pinned on their
jackets. Every two or three
minutes, a secret service
agent would glance over the
press area and see that I
wasn't wearing a permit.
One agent did a really thorough job.
"Where's your permit?" he
I took out my wallet and
showed him my Columbia
press card. He wasn't impressed.
"Why don't you have a police permit?" he said, daring
me to find an acceptable answer.
I made up an excuse that
for some reason I hadn't been
given one.
"Have you got any identification?" he asked, and as I
dug out my citizenship card,
added: "Where do you live?"
iWhen I told him, he
"Where's your alien permit?"
I showed him. He seemed
satisfied, and a little more
politely asked:
"Would you mind opening
your jacket?"
When he saw that I wasn't
wearing a shoulder holster, he
gave me a gruff "O.K." and
walked off.
It was almost 1 p.m. About
50 secret service agents and
poicemen were standing in
front of the temple. Several of
them were looking up at nearby buildings.
• •    •
Black limousines began to
pull up. Attorney-General
Robert Kennedy got out of
one, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller
out of another, Adlai Stevenson came in another.
Suddenly the roar of motorcycles filled Fifth Avenue.
About 30 motorcycle police
shot by and dispersed into the
key   approaches.
Then a dozen cars crammed
with secret service agents
screeched to a halt in front of
the temple as more motorcycles roared by. The doors
flew open. Agents were everywhere, tensed for action. The
air  was electric.
A black Cadillac pulled up
sharply at the curb. An agent
stood at the back door as it
was opened, shielding President Johnson as he got out.
"President Johnson, will
you come over this way for
a moment?" called several
photographers. He posed for
about half a minute, then was
quickly hustled inside the
He looked exhausted, and
managed to give the photographers only a weak smile.

The final part of the drama
had taken less than two minutes. But so many cars and
motorcycles, so many men, so
much noise had filled these
minutes that a sense of tre
mendous pressure had been
built up. It emphasized the extreme importance of the President of the United States. It
led one to expect a superman
to appear.
Of course, President Johnson is capable and has capable
men to help him. But he is
only a man. Tuesday, January 7, 1964

No sentimental journey
Birds bounced in South
UBC Thunderbird basketball team spent most of its
Christmas holidays south of
the border, down Oregon
In early .^December, the
club made a quick journey
to    Corvallis,    Oregon,    the
home of the Oregon State
Beavers. At the time Oregon
was rated anywhere from
ninth to 19th in the nation.
Led by seven foot Mel
Counts, the Beavers had an
easy time disposing of the
Birds. The final score read
OSU 87, UBC 47. Dave Way
counted 15 points for the
Birds.  Only. Beavers'  guard
Jim Jarvis scored more
points for  Oregon.
Since the encounter with
UBC, OSU has climbed rapidly in the national standings, recently defeating
number four ranked Cincinnati.
After exams, Birds motored south for a more lengthy
UBC invaded Portland
State College Dec. 8 and
emerged 57-42 victors. Ron
Erickson spearheaded the
attack with 21 points. Dave
Way was close behind with
The next stop was Mc-
Minnville,     Oregon,    where
the Birds had two engagements with Linfield College.
New Year's celebrations
started a little late for UBC
as they finished out the old
year with a 108-85 loss to
the smaller but more aggressive, sharpshooters from
Linfield. Dave Way again
led the way with 27 points.
Two nights later, revenge
was gained. A last second
basket by forward Bob Barazzuol pushed UBC over
Linfield by a narrow 82-81
score. Dave Way completed
his Linfield festivities with
28 points and 20 rebounds.
The team then turned
north for a  weekend  series
Thunderbirds' goalie Jack Harris  averaged 40 saves in recent road trips to Alberta.
Puck team gets into shape
for two-game Hamber series
After a crash-training series
in Alberta, the weary but
greatly improved UBC Thunderbird team has flown back
to its home nest.
Following a four-week layoff, the Birds played four
games in as many days in a
determined effort to reach
peak form for the upcoming
Hamber Cup series.
In their first three games
against members of the strong
Big Six league, UBC lost their
opener 3-1 to Taber, tied
league-leading Medicine Hat
3-3 and came up with a four-
goal outburst in the final period to beat Lethbridge 7-5 in
their third game.
The TBirds then travelled
to Olds, arriving after a four
hour bus trip just in time to
start fhe afternoon game
against the Olds Elks. Elks
were finalists in the Canadian
intermediate champion ships
the  last;;fwo years  and  the
toughest  opposition  the Birds
have met this year.
Playing their fourth game
in four days the tired club}
lost 6-0 to the Olds team.
Although the main purpose
of the trip was to get the team
in top condition, the players
showed a lot of enthusiasm to
win especially in Medicine
Hat, where they drew the biggest crowd of the year.
Coach Dennis Selder said,
"The trip was successful not
only regarding conditioning
but also in determining what
must be done if we are to have
a winning year in intercollegiate competition."
Top scorer on the trip for
UBC was 'winger Ken Cairns
with four points, while Dave
Morris and Bob Parker each
contributed two goals.
Defensively goalie Jack
Harris was a standout for the
UBC team, averaging 40 saves
a game.
This weekend the annual
Hamber Cup series between
University of Alberta Golden
Bears and the UBC Thunderbirds will be played at the
Winter Sports centre.
with Seattle Pacific College
On Friday night, UBC
could not catch the American school. The final score
was 71-65 for Seattle. High
scorers for the Thunderbirds
were Morris Douglas and
Bob Barazzuol, both with
14 points.
The southern tour ended
much the same as it had
started three weeks earlier.
Seattle Pacific humiliated
Peter Mullin's boys 92-49.
UBC captured the Totem
tournament trophy in November. The New Westminster Bakers fell to the Birds
77-50 on the opening night,

compounds which may arrest
the progress of the disease in
Dr. Nichol also plans to continue work on methods of detecting human carriers of muscular dystrophy through analysis of a muscle enzyme known
as creative kinase, found in the
blood stream of muscular dystrophy patients and some carriers of the disease.
