UBC is going to stay out of Canadian inter-collegiate
athletic competition for at least the next two years.
The Men's Athletic Commit
tee Wednesday sanctioned Bus
Phillips, athletic director, to
schedule competition outside
the Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Association for
the next two years.
"This   means   UBC   will   be
playing exhibition games only,"
said Malcolm Scott, student representative to the MAC.
"Now "we can experiment
with different types of competition and develop our own
program, without worrying
about WCIAA regulations,"
said Scott.
"We will not enter the Evergreen Conference or any other
conference on a permanent
basis for two years," said Scott.
UBC has been a member of
WCIAA for the last five years.
At the league's last meeting,
UBC refused to renew its contract with the league, but it
had been speculated that UBC
would re-enter after next year.
Decision for entry into any
conference has now been postponed for two years.
"We  want  to see what  the
situation is like two years from
now," Scott explained.
He said tha|t the University
of Alberta at Calgary, Victoria

The flag, stolen from the

by 24 feet in size, made of
pure silk, at great cost.
"The flag was going to be
flown from the top of the
top of the building when it
reached its highest point, but
we won't be able to fly it
new," said Gordon.
"When we went to look for
it on Friday morning, we
found the cord cut and the
flag gone," he said. "I don't
known how they got up.
"This is a very costly item,
and I'll have to make a full

'Tm not going to say if I
like the flag or not," Gordon
said. "But the Premier chose
it as the flag of British Columbia, and it's government property/and as such it should be
left alone.
"The flag was probably
stolen after dark," he said.
"But that doesn't make any

Bitter Ash bites the dust - again
HAMILTON, Ont. (Special)
—Bitter Ash, the controversial movie produced at UBC
by student Larry Kent, has
been banned at McMaster University.
McMaster president Dr. H.
D. Thode Thursday ordered a
scheduled showing to be cancelled because the movie had
not been viewed by the Ontario Censor's Board.
The film, which contains a
portrayal of the sex act, was
shown at UBC last fall.
Thode received a letter
from H. A. M. Whyte, a Toron
to minister whose son Steve
attends McMaster, protesting
the scheduled showing.
Neither Whyte, his son, nor
Thode has seen the movie.
Rev. Whyte said: "I am a
minister of the gospel who
has had considerable experience in helping people recover
themselves from seeing the
portrayal of acts that are not
He said he was able to help
one minister of the gospel
whose mind had been "affected by having seen a vulgar
burlesque   show   in   Toronto
when he was 16 years of age."
"The detrimental effects- to
his mind had continued for another 17 years, and he had to
be counselled and prayed for
to be delivered." he said.
Steven, a first-year student
of natural sciences, said he
thought students who go to
see a film like Bitter Ash "go
for sexual excitement with
only one thought in mind.
"I feel the people involved
ought to be ashamed. How
would you like someone to
take a picture of you sitting on
a toilet?"
The student said the film
could have nothing but a detrimental effect on students,
and could pervert them for the
rest of their lives.
Sources on the campus say
the film was banned because
the administration does not
want any bad publicity.
Meanwhile Kent, now in
Toronto, said the film would
be shown Feb. 3 at the University of Toronto.
It is being sponsored there
by the Student Christian
Movement. Page 2

On Campus Interviews
And games. And talking horses. It's all
in a day's work. Because our engineers
are in the business of thinking up, perfecting and producing first-of-their-
kind toys like Chatty Cathy®-the doll
that really talks—prized possession of
more than 5 million little girle. Producing her, and hundreds of other sophisticated toys and games, has seen our
industrial engineers solve lots of first-
of-their-kind problems, too-using jigs
and fixtures in highly original line layouts to provide volume production, yet
assure opportunity for continual product improvement.
Maybe you're a man who like nothing better than finding ways to make
things simpler, better and cheaper. If
so, you'll find our business stimulating,
rewarding and loaded with potential.
Because your brand of talent has
helped us grow so fast we've become
the biggest toymaker around, with no
end to expansion in sight. That's why
we're substantially expanding our
already sizeable engineering staff,
again, during the next twelve months.

AMS okays new
charter flight
The AMS is sponsoring another charter flight, this time
to Trinidad.
Council Monday passed a
motion to officially sponsor the
flight and make a $500 deposit
for it. It is being organized by

The AMS already runs two
flights to Europe.
Miss Clarke said the flight
must have the backing of a
group organized for a purpose
other than just to sponsor the
flight, although the AMS could
in no way lose money.
She said the flight will leave
for Port - au - Spain, Trinidad,
on July 18, and return Sept. 5.
"If the maximum of 32
people go, the cost will be $325
per person. We will go if we
get 70, at a cost of $380.
"We have 29 people signed
up already, without any official advertising."
Miss Clarke said the flight
will not cut into the European
tour, since at least half of those
going to Trinidad will be West
She said the procedure for
paying will be a $10 fee at the
time of registration, one-quarter of the $325 by April 18, and
the balance by departure time.

dropped out after April 18 will
have to pay the full price or
supply a replacement.

A new era
We'd suggest the administration and Board of Governors seriously consider the proposal of one Douglas
Smith, who offered UBC $10,000 to set up a college of
public relations.
It's our opinion, and plenty of other people's as
well, that UBC could stand a little education in that
field, particularly said administration and Board of
It has become apparent in the past week that th«
Board's handling of the "Challenge of Growth" pamphlet and particularly the tuition fee raise has been one
horrible bungle.
The blundering manner in which the information,
particularly the fee-raise announcement, was released has
undone all the good intentions which the report contained.
The result has been the alienation of the students,
faculty, many businessmen and alumni — and perhaps
even the government and the general public.
Fritz Bowers, president of the Facility Association,
said it for everyone: "I think the whole affair has been
•handled very badly."
Education Minister Peterson said no one even told
him about the fee raise, although this is probably a cover-
up for a previously-worked-out deal, which Peterson has
already hinted at.
There is also the shadowy overtone given the fee
announcement because of its timing—why was it announced before the government's budget?
Alumni are presently blustering because they
weren't consulted or informed about the matter at all.
And the students—who were most maligned by the
icy administration secrecy—are downright insulted.
The key to the whole bungle is the president's quotation in his open letter to students, published Tuesday in
The Ubyssey, the paragraph which, he said, was the
basis for the Board's policy.
"Clearly, the task and cost of meeting the requirements for higher education in the years ahead are of a
new dimension. These costs cannot be met by any single
group within society, but no group can avoid sharing
in the responsibility."
We would suggest to Dr. Macdonald and the Board
that their stated policy is totally at odds with their
Gentlemen, throughout the latest crisis, you have
steadfastly refused to allow any other group in society
to share in any responsibility whatever.
Responsibility is a lot more than $50 pulled from a
student's or an alumnus's wallet.
It is time the Board realized this, and, further, it's
time they did something about it before UBC sinks completely. What we need around here is just what the
Board says—a new dimension in responsibility. Our own
house is a good place to start.
Great Gooch!
We say hurrah for James Balderson, the editor of
the Education students' newsletter, Gooch.
Mr. Balderson was responsible for suggesting that a
committee be set up to hear student complaints about
ineffective or incompetent faculty. What's more, the
committee, he said, would print the evidence in the newsletter, which would publicly embarrass the academic
The idea of being able to critically assess the performance of their professors has long appealed to students.
After all, no one else seems to do much criticizing—
the administration itself admits it has no way of judging
a professor's in-class performance (so it instead judges
him on the number of articles he's had published).
It seems to us that if we're to be expected to "share
in the responsibility" of higher education, to quote President Macdonald, we should be allowed something for
our money.
A little bit of criticism in exchange for $150 in the
next three years doesn't seem to us to be too big a price
for the administration to pay—especially since they're the
ones who continually harp about excellence.

ORNSTEIN: a romantic
sentimental bonehead
"Alas! that men must see
Love, before Death!
Else they content must be
With their short breath."
Someone called John Mills
had a funny letter in The
Ubyssey on Tuesday. He
championed the 'chance encounter' and the 'casual contact.' And I'll be the first to
agree that a planned life is not
worth living. (I advocated
planned parenthood, not planned relationships).
Most people have experienced the excitement of
chance encounters and the
pleasures of contacting casually. And some of these will
remain interesting memories
for their old age. But a life of
such relationships (or are they
relationships?) would be as
emotionally empty as some of
these brief meetings prove to
• •    •
A healthy one or two-night
stand is fine—for one or two
nights. You come together
knowing full well that you're
using each other. And after
going without sex for a while
you'll go to bed with practically anyone frustrated or
drunk enough to resort to you.
There need be nothing ugly
or dirty about these brief interludes. But this is the point.
These are interludes—"short
performances between acts."
They are poor substitutes for
the real 'act'—that of love.
• •    •
OK. So call me an old fashioned, romantic, sentimental
bonehead. There is such a
thing as love—though it often
may fade or vanish. To love
someone and to be loved is
to live more meaningfully and
more satisfactorily than to be
ever searching for 'chance encounters.'
We may joke and brag
about sex but this should
cease when we come to know
what it can mean between
two people.
It has been said that happiness is not a laughing matter. Love, too, is no laughing
matter. I think I could ridicule everything but genuine
affection. Love can be pathological, (with extreme jealousy, exaggerated pains and
confusions) but it's still better
than a life-time of one-night
• •    •
Would I be too bold to assert that most of us are (or
were) searching for someone
to love? And that once a profound relationship is engendered, then existence becomes
somehow   more  genuine?
One of the defining characteristics of an emotionally ill
person is that he cannot reate
(or even communicate, in
some cases) to others. Would
it be too bold to say that a
truly healthy person is one
who can love someone deeply?
• •    •
Love is to our emotions as
truth is to our beliefs. Just
as one who is too dull to see
the truth will deny or ignore
it, so one who cannot love
will deny or ridicule it. But
as Shakespeare said:
"And when love speaks, the
voice   of   all   the  gods
Makes heaven drowsy with
the harmony."
A challenge
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Through the Ubyssey I
should like to issue a formal
challenge to the leader of the
UBC Liberal Club, to a
Model Parliament Campaign
The campus Conservative
club has reserved the Brock
Lounge for 12:30 on Thursday, Jan. 30. The purpose of
the debate is to stimulate interest in Model Parliament by
bringing together, to debate
their platforms, the leaders
of the campus Conservative
and Liberal parties.
I would suggest that the
president of the Debating
Union act as an impartial
chairman, with the following
agenda: 10 minute main
speeches outlining platform,
five minute critiques, and
three minute rebuttals. Following this the floor should
be opened to audience participation.
I look forward to the reply
of the UBC Liberal leader.

Immature emotion
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Concern ing the article
"Let's Take The Hex Off
Sex," by Jack Orstein, which
appeared in last Friday's paper. I'm sure that you can
find other ways to fill up our
newspaper than by printing
such garbage. If this fellow
Ornstein wants to live like a
goat, that's his business, but
why should our newspaper be
a medium  for such trash.
Judging from his writings,
Ornstein seems to be like a
little child who escapes from
a playpen finds a pen (or
typewriter) and tries to get
attention by scribbling (or
typing) the products of its
immature emotions.
Science I
See the light
Editor, The Ubyssey:
As a member of this year's
Grad Class, may I suggest that
instead of the usual book gift,
we apply these monies towards the purchase of adequate lighting and soundproofing in the older section
of the main stacks.
One can't see with those
dinky light bulbs that are in
use now; and if the librarians
(and some students) cut down
on the amount of small talk
behind those paper-thin,
loosely-fitted barriers, the library might be a half-decent
place to study.

fee probe
A plan for a survey of
British Columbia's attitudes to
higher education has been
shelved for the time being.
The Higher Education Promotion Committee plans instead a survey of student ability to pay the recent fee increase.
Byron Hender, AMS second
vice-president, explained that
the new survey would have to
be decided on by council before anything could be done
concerning HEP.
"If council decides that the
ability survey is worthwhile
and undertakes it, this will
cut down on the money appropriated to HEP.
"However, the HEP plans
will probably go ahead later,"
he said.
The HEP plans call for a
survey fo be made to determine the public's attitudes and
impressions of higher education, and to ascertain how
these impressions were formed.
The survey would be made
by a professional survey organization.
The abilities survey is a
plan forwarded by AMS President Malcolm Scott, based on
a  similiar  Quebec  survey.
The plan was forwarded by
Scott after he charged the

Arts festival
unique to UBC
Tine Festival of the Contemporary Arts, with its emphatic orientation toward the avant-garde, the imaginative and the daring, and with
its ability to crowd into a ten-day period performances and presentations of the highest quality, is a unique phenomenon.
Usually it is only a coincidence which may bring two or three of
these events together at any one time in a major city or university.
The UBC Festival makes this exciting confluence possible because it
specifically asks the question: Where are we artistically at this moment,
and in which direction are we likely to be headed?
•   •    •
In the three Festivals which antedated the one commencing
January 29, there were performances that must have seemed, to the
uninitiated viewer, to be slightly mad, or even outrageous events,
having relation neither to each other nor to the "sane" world at large.
On the other hand, there are those who have detected certain
recurring themes; and often these themes have given hints, not only
of recurring from one art form to another, but also of developments
in fields of activity other than the arts. The 1964 Festival of the
Contemporary Arts has deliberately attempted to seek out these relationships.   This time it hopes to make a "connection."
This review of the Festival w_3 contributed by Alvin Balkind,
assistant curator of UBC's Fine Arts Gallery.
Although he feels faculty contributions are out of place in a student
newspaper, we persuaded him to make his one exception, because we
felt the Festival important enough to warrant an insider's view.—ed.
There is every likelihood that the Connector may be Dr. Marshall
McLuhan, who is not strictly speaking a performer, although his
method of presenting his ideas is, in the best sense, a "performance";
and the controversial nature of his theses, put forward with his verve,
off-beat style and vitality, is, in the highest degree, "entertaining."
At least one of the people to appear at this year's Festival has been
directly influenced by McLuhan's writings—Gerd Stern, from San
Francisco. But, by and large, most of the events are an outgrowth of
massive developments in today's world—developments that have pushed
the arts toward their present objectives, and have provided the stimuli
to McLuhan's thought and writings. The times, the arts ,and McLuhan
have ineracted upon one another, evoking McLuhan's revelations on
the impact of communications in the Electronics Age, and inspiring
certain artists to create new forms which may be the corroboration of
McLuhan's theories.
• •    •
What are these massive, indeed, cataclysmic, developments? Anybody's list would have to include nuclear energy, supersonic jet flight,
Telstar, explorations into space, computers, automation, expanding
populations, and all the other overwhelming social and political complexities of today which have become journalistic cliches, but, nevertheless, make up the character of our times.
This is a little frightening, perhaps, and certainly confusing. But
like it or not, it is the world of 1964. How nice it would be if
artists were to ignore all this, and to behave as though they were sitting
under the spreading chestnut trees in mittle-Graustark, and, in waltz
tempo, taking gentle sips of claret cup.
But artists of probity cannot—and do not—do so. What we are,
and what 1964 is, cannot be denied, however much we might want
to push it all under the carpet. As McLuhan likes to point out, we do
this at our peril.
• •    •
The '64 Festival may be the vehicle to give us the opportunity of
seeing how some of our contemporaries are meeting their era head
on. We may see it at the Festival exhibitions: Art Becomes Reality
(Pop Art), The New Ceramic Presence, and, for three days in the lobby
of the Frederick Wood Theatre, the  collage/poems  of Gerd  Stern.
We may see it in Jean Erdman's The Coach With The Six Insides,
a professional exercise in integrated, total theatre, based upon James
Joyce's Finnegan Wake (Joyce, incidentally, was a great influence on
Marshall McLuhan); and in the films of Vernon Zimmerman and
Al Sens.
We may hear it in the "beast language" of poet, Michael McClure;
or in the music performed by Sylvia Kind, the CBC Chamber Orchestra
and the members of UBC Department of Music.
It may manifest itself in Gerd Stern's presentations of Mosaic
and Verbal American Landscape Take Two, or in Philip Thiel's Notes
For The Symphony Of Space.
• •    •
But, above all, it may be discerned in what Marshall McLuhan has
to say, which may, all in all, lead us to that fascinating "connection."
At this university, the student presents his mind (and his fees) at
the cashier's desk, and hopefully gets something in return. Call this
Festival of the Contemporary Arts a dividend. It is not listed in the
regular curriculum. But judging from the impact and repercussions
of the past three Festivals, the 1964 presentations are likely to result
in one of the most memorable and influential courses of events in this
year's calendar

The Cardinal, directed by
Otto Preminger, is another of
those pictures which attempts
to glorify a certain institution
of society by pointing out the
trials and tribulations of a
member within said institution.
The film suffers most from
what has laughingly been called "a subtle reshaping of history." It suffers from various
other illnesses as well, particularly sloppy sentimentality and
downright bad acting.
The Cardinal traces the steps
of a Roman Catholic priest
from his days as a theological
sludent to his final triumph
when he is made a Prince of
the Church. He suffers various
pitfalls which, oddly enough,
require him to make decisions
based on his religious training
rather than personal experience.
•    •    •
For example, his dear sister
(Carol Lynley) is in love with
a Jew. Since they cannot marry
(due to the conflict of religion)
little sister runs away, becomes
a dance-hall girl and becomes
pregnant (without becoming
married) by a sneaky-looking
dance partner, Ramon. In the
hospital, the priest (I forget his
name, but he is played, rather
unconvincingly, by Tom Tryon)
is faced with the big decision.
(I forgot to let you in on some
more of the plot. Little sister
is of too small a stature to have
the baby and the doctors would
have to perform a foetal craniotomy to save her.)
Now, Tom has to decide. Will
he let poor sister die and save
the baby or will he agree to
the operation to save little sister? To the tune of "But
That's Murder" and a few catechisms, he decides that little
sister must go in order to save
the baby.
But all turns out well in the
end anyway, 'cause little baby,
not unpredictably, grows up to
look almost exactly like her
poor tragic mummy. In fact,
the likeness is so striking you
would swear Carol Lynley was
playing both parts. (I nearly
fell off my seat laughing. The
whole scene is about as tragic
as Charley Brown being booted
by Lucy.)
Later on, the Catholic
Church, in the person of what's-
his-name, is shown as: (1) Leading the fight against segregation in the State of Georgia. (2)
Leading the fight against the
Nazis in pre-war Austria. The
official policy of the Vatican,
in the film, is that Nazis are
bad little boys and must not
be tolerated. (3) Leading the
fight against . . .
•    •    •
I give up. I could go on and
on, but I would wear you out
as well as myself—and the film
was wearing enough. The Cardinal is plain and simple, a poor
film with mechanical readings
of idiot cards in place of acting (the^only bright spot in the
whole cast is Romy Schnieder
who has a relatively small
part) as well as a general aura
of incredulity about the whole

On fee raise statements
Scott receives
carte blanche
Ubyssey Council Reporter
After more than an hour of
controversy Monday, Council
gave AMS president a carte
blanche on statements about
the fee raise.
Council had taken issue with
some of Scott's statements to
the press, and also to AMS first
vice - president Jim Ward's
speech in front of the library
saying President Mcdonald
was hard to see.
But by the time the meeting
broke up, council heard suggestions such as Education
president George Boechler's:
"I think we should give the
executive a vote of confidence
and give them some leeway."
Scott said he had to have
more definite instructions. He
said he had been criticized before by council for acting within what he considered to be
his jurisdiction, (in connection
with the AMS brief to the government), and this time he
didn't wanf the same trouble.
"We've got to have something fairly clearcut," Scott
Council finally approved
Scott's outline of the statements he intended to make:
"First," Scott said, "UBC
students have always supported higher education — from
the 1920's to the 1960's."
So Scott said he was going
to emphasize this point above
Student loans wiped out
in three years - Scott
Second, he was going to
make it clear that student;-
have no objection to paying
their fair share.
Third, Scott said, he was go
ing to ask the questions as to
why 25 per cent was arrived at
as the level of student contributions, and what measure;
the university administration
had taken to investigate students ability to pay for the increase.
If no such investigation had
been made, Scott said, he
ask on what ground- they
thought the students could pay
Scott outlined his intended Q
future actions, as well. X
These included a study of 8
the students ability to pay, a O
brief to the Board of Gov- 8
ernors on the subject of stu- X
dent finances and a similar v
brief to the provincial govern- O
ment. o
Scott also said that a cam-§
paign could be launched for 8
more loans and bursaries using O"
pressure on MLA's from such D
groups as the Parent-Teacher o
Associations, school trustees, ft
alumni,   and   intor-im-   noT-on+c 0
Money now available for student loans will be wiped
out in three years, AMS president Malcolm Scott forecast
"There is no evidence that the government intends to
increase bursaries and loans by one cent," Scott said on
Monday night's council meeting.
Earlier Monday Dean Walter Gage said the loan fund,.
operated  by  the university,   could  accommodate  any increased request for loans.
Scott said there was $1.7 million available to students
now. But, he pointed out, increases in fees will mean an
additional cost of $800,000 a year, assuming the fees are
hiked $50 a year.
And since a three-year program of increases is probable Scott said, not only will the loan fund be cleaned
out, but there will be a need for another $800,00 by 1966.

whose legs move realistically as he gallops, bucks and rears. Nobody had ever
made such an animal before, so our
R&D people had to solve lots of interesting new problems in the process -
like developing the linkage and springs
that make this bronc perform with
equal enthusiasm whether his rider
weighs 35 lbs. or 70, while simultaneously licking stress and fatigue problems similar in scope to those found in
aircraft design.
It's stimulating work. Technically
challenging. Not only in R&D, but in
manufacturing and administration, too.
And, most rewarding—in terms of
both salary and satisfaction. Wheel
spinning is kept to a minimum and a
surprising number of the ideas bur
people propose end up in production.
Maybe because so many have been good

selling at a rate demanding that we
substantially increase our engineering staff, again, to keep up with our
growth. This opens up some choice
spots for men particularly interested
in finding ways to make things simpler,
better and cheaper.

Friday,  January  24,   1964
speaks for
All of a sudden everybody's
excited about athletic scholarships. That's fine.
But with all this talk in the
sports section of this newspaper on scholarships, it has
occured to me that no one has
specified what form of assistance (financial or otherwise)
should be given to college
The connotation of "athletic scholarships" to many
people is the result of the
abuses common to U.S. football factories during the early
and middle fifties.
• •    •
Football squads lived in
dorms separated from the rest
of the students, took sham
courses or received automatic
passes from alumi-cowed professors, and picked up monthly "allowances" in flashy, donated automobiles.
At least that's what writers
of boys' sports stories would
have us believe.
These allegations were
borne out, in part at least, by
investigations of the National
Collegiate Athletic Association.
This body dug down into a
pile of potential fertilizer, and
decided it was time to put
some legitimacy back into
American college sport.
So, they adopted a set of
rules restricting the amount
and types of aid that a school
could offer to prospective athletes.
• •   •
At the same time they made
it known that certain institutions had better raise their
academic standards for athletes, or apply the same measuring rod to sport-types as
they did to other students.
Schools that didn't clean up
their aid programs were
slapped with heavy limits on
their recruiting of high school
athletes, and as a result had
to suffer through long periods
with teams of inferior quality.
The evils of full athletic
scholarships awarded to near
imbeciles have been corrected
by U.S. universities.
The abuses have been minimized. College sport is back
in the hands of the students.
What should this mean to
• •    •
It provides an ethical, tested method for raising the
calibre of a school's athletic
status. This in turn can( and
almost always does) bring in
higher class opponents, larger
crowds, and more money.
In schools half the size of
UBC, with urban areas several times smaller than this,
money left over from athletics is used to build additions
to campus libraries, improve
classroom facilities, and such.
Many American schools do
little more than find jobs for
their athletes. Others contribute part or full tuition.
It is, I believe, only a matter of time until UBC is
forced into granting its athletes some form of aid.

Coach Peter Mullins walked
out of Tuesday night's practice

that he didn't want to' see them

Mullins is worried about the
mental attitude of his team.
He later explained: "I don't
want to come to practices to
watch those guys bobbling the
ball around. They do the difficult things well, but cannot do
the simple things.
"It is all a matter of attitude. And if it doesn't change,
I'll cancel next week's practices also," he said.

Who thought Vancouver
would ever be one up on Innsbruck?
With last week's generous
snow fall we can once again
curse our chains at mile zero
on Mt. Seymour, stand for
hours in the lineups for Grouse
Mountain's chairlift, and do
battle with the level slopes of
Mt. Hollyburn.
A slightly saner trek has
started for Diamond Head on
Garibaldi, which affords. a
most enjoyable and considerably more relaxing day of
sking for $3.00, although the
area has been temporarily
closed because of excess snow
on the roads.
•   •   •
If you're considering the
local hills, any time after 8:30
a.m. is sheer frustration.
Perhaps an hour's wait in
traffic or lift lineups might
allow us that moment of reflection to compare the potential in skiing development
around our fair city and the
facilities afforded us at the
It's unfortunate that we had
to wait for a vision of Olympic
grandeur to provide an impetus
for the Whistler Mt. project.
But it's satisfying to know
that we will soon be able to do
something with all this snow
rather than meekly surrender
to the three hills — then perhaps we will be able to talk of
Vancouver and Innsbruck in
the same breath.
The "Baker Invasion" met
a blizzard counterattack last
Sunday, sending many of the
less hardy souls to the shelter
of the ski lodge. Three buses
from Fort Camp, Education,
and V.O.C. braved the weather
south of the • border, and the
groups seemed to have enjoyed
the day despite themselves.

one to Whistler Mt. and the
other to Hollyburn.

meet will not be held this Sunday  as previously announced.

February 23 and the course
will be in Brockton Gully,

faculty may submit any number of entries, however only
the best four times count for
the team results.
Registration is on the day of
the meet.
The Thunderbird Ski Team
is again competing in the
Pacific Northwest Intercollegiate meets.
December 21 to January 1
the Alpine team worked out in
Rossland under coaches Don
Bruneski and Ted Hill.
January 1 the team left for
the first meet in McCall, Idaho.
The Thunderbirds, with
undermanned teams, placed
fourth among seven U.S. College teams.
• •    •
The best performance was
by Dave Gibson who ran fifth
in   the cross-country.
Alan Sturgess, and Denis De
Jong round out the Nordic
team. Tom Jenkin, who didn't
go to McCall due to injuries,
Gary Taylor, Tim Roberts, and
Martin Kaffka make up the
Alpine team.
More consistency, already
apparent in the second meet in
Missoula, Montana should
make the Alpine team a more
serious contender among the
stronger U.S. teams.
