"THERE'S NO END TO IT", gasps Chris Blake, science 2, as he peers into the dismal cavern
which is the armory. "First it was course approval, then IBM cdrds, the registrar's forms, and
now I have to line up to be robbed of my hard-earned $243. Good grief."
UBC's new president
encourages freedom
He dislikes exams, too many lectures, and
university administrations.
He thinks the best way to learn is by maximum possible freedom of exchange, and he encourages academic criticism.
He is Dr. Frederick Kenneth Hare, 48,
^meteorologist, geographer, and the new president of UBC.
Dr. Hare, currently Master of Birkbeck College of the University of London, will not take
over his new post until early next year, but already UBC faculty circles have felt his impact.
Appointed in June after an exhaustive international search by the UBC Board of Governors,
he paid a 10-day visit to the campus at the end
of August.

AMS finances
in black'—Hoye
By STEPHEN JACKSON
No Alma Mater Society money was lost last
year, says its treasurer, Dave Hoye, and if he can
help it, none will be lost this year either.
This is despite his inability to increase AMS
fees, he said Monday. Three fee increase referendums over the past year and a half have been
defeated.
The AMS financial situation, said Hoye, is
"not quite as bad as it looked before, but it sure
is not rosy."
Less than one seventh of the total AMS budget of about $450,000.00 is allocated to its programs. The rest goes in "non-discretionary"
grants to projects such as SUB, Brock management, CUS, the accident benefit plan, the Brock
art fund, and men's and women's athletics.
The Canadian Union of Students receives
sixty-five cents per student from his total AMS
dues of twenty-nine dollars.
Although no AMS budget for this year has as
yet been approved, it is known that some cuts in
expenses will be made. The Ubyssey, for example, has increased its advertising rates to reduce its operating cost to the AMS from ninety-
one cents per student last year, to eighty-seven
cents per student this year.
Ubyssey editor Danny Stoffman called the
paper's 87 cents a student operating cost "incredibly low".
"The Ubyssey's budget has hit its absolute
rock-bottom. It cannot and will not go any
lower," Stoffman said. "Seventy issues for 87
cents is a ridiculously low subscription price for
a newspaper."
AMS seeks
public aid
for housing
By BONI LEE
Ubyssey Ass't City Editor
Houses, houses everywhere, and not a suite to spare.
Faced by a critical housing shortage, the university has
issued an urgent appeal to secure housing accommodation.
Landlords and householders are asked to register any rooms,
suites or houses available anywhere within commuting distance
of the campus.
The appeal was issued by Acting President Walter Gage, Don
Munton, chairman of the Alma Mater Society housing committee,
and International House director John Thomas.
Persons with accommodation to register can call the AMS
housing registry at 224-3242, International House at 228-3264
or the UBC housing office at 228-2811.
"It's really bad," said AMS president Shaun Sullivan.
"People are coming into my office and telling me they can't
find anything."
University officials said the shortage is worse than ever
and will probably cause real hardship unless more housing can
be found quickly.
"Aggravating factors have been steadily increasing enrollment at UBC, closure of suites in single-family dwellings near
the university and a slowing of off-campus construction," said
Gage.
Also blamed are repeated delays in construction of the new
residential complex Acadia Park.
The housing clusters and 15-story high rise were originally
scheduled for completion Sept. 15, and are now expected to be
finished in mid-December.
"About 70 of the families promised accommodation in
Acadia Park, most of them with small children, have been unable
to find places to live," said Munton. "These people have to
be out of their present temporary quarters by Sept. 30."
Munton estimated at least 1,500 single students are in temporary accommodation arrangements.
"This crisis exists not so much in places available but in
the adequacy of accommodation," he said.
"80 per cent of requested housing is for housekeeping
suites. Only a very small percentage of accommodation offered
meets this request.
"And there are other problems. We took one woman off
our list because she refused to serve more than one cup of
coffee per evening to her boarders.
"She thought her electricity bill would be raised to some
astronomical sum."
International House director Thomas said pressure in his
area is easing.
"We've had some very successful responses to our requests
for housing, but we're still at it," he said.
"We're seeing about eight persons who are looking for
accommodation a day now where before we had 15 to 20," he
said.
Students seeking accommodation can go to the AMS housing
office on the second floor of South Brock or phone 228-3242.
UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS BLAMED
Alma Mater Society officials blamed university officials
Monday for the current UBC housing crisis.
"The university has not been taking enough concern for
the housing accommodation problems at UBC," said Don Munton,
also chairman of the AMS housing committee.
His charges came after university appeals last week to the
public for accommodation for married students with families
and foreign students.
"We were assured in Aug. that residents would be moved
into Acadia Park by mid-November," he said.
"We have since been told construction will not be completed
until mid-December.
"No one said anything until it was too late."
AMS president Shaun Sullivan said the university was
negligent in not informing the public of delays.
"It was only after we informed the newspapers that further
delay until mid-December was expected that the university
released a statement," he said.
Munton said it was obvious last spring that Acadia Park
wou!'4   "nt v>~ romn.etsd in time for mid-September.
Dean Walter Gage, acting university president, said it was
easy to blame the administration.
"We undertook to find housing," he said. "It has gone as
rapidly as it could.    We've done our very best." Page 2

CUS committee chairman
quits in council dispute
-A V   !WV»     '
By NORM GIDNEY
Ubyssey Council Reporter
The unhappy chairman of the Canadian
of the Canadian University Students committee
at UBC resigned Monday night.
Steve Beckow, arts 4, said in a last-minute
letter to Student Council he quit because he
disagreed with the present concept of CUS.
Also at the meeting, AMS treasurer Dave
Hoye threatened to resign over a proposed motion to give last year's sole budget surplus of
$10,000 to the  undergraduate socities.
Beckow, after appearing at the AMS council
meeting and defending statements he made
earlier about CUS needing radical change to
make it effective, resigned in a letter delivered
to the council meeting a half hour after he
wrote it.
In the letter, he asked if the organization
(CUS) "satisfactorily met the needs of the students at this campus and the rest of Canada".
He also doubed whether CUS would increasingly be "worth the rising price tag placed
upon membership".
(CUS fees in 1966-67 were 65 cents per student and were raised to 75 cents at its annual
conference this month in London, Ontario.)
Hoye, as chairman of the finance commitee,
felt his position threatened by a resolution by
commerce president Peter Uitdenbosch to give
the 1966-67 surplus of $10,000 to the undergraduate societies.
Red-faced with fist upraised, Hoye threatened resignation. "If council passes this resolution it'll have to find itself another treasurer,"
he ' shouted while several councillors tried to
speak.
Council then calmly tabled the resolution
until the finance committee brings down its report next month.
"Just another move to keep you on your
toes,"  smiled arts president Stan Persky.
Beckow, not present when his resignation
was debated, suggested in his letter that schemes
for altering CUS would include a weak national union for international relations and
federal lobbying backed by a strong provincial
level for most of the programming now carried
out by CUS
Speaking against acceptance of Beckow's
resignation and for a vote of confidence were
AMS vice-president Don Munton and science
undergraduate president Robin Russell.
"He feels, that his position is threatened,"
said Muntom
Law   society   president,   Jim   Taylor,   said
Beckow cannot "in conscience act as chairman
for a program he does not support."
"CUS is in dire need of change if it is to
succeed in any form," wrote Beckow. "I do not
support CUS blindly and I was not and will not
be the last dying defender of an organization
that does not meet the needs of the student."
Council voted to accept his resignation and
to extend a vote of thanks for Beckow's services.
UBC  opposes
CUS   policy
LONDON (CUP)'— UBC's delegation to this
month's CUS Congress opposed without success
a resolution on commitment of member student
unions to the national body.
A resolution was passed binding members
either to withdraw before the second day of a
national congress or stick until the next congress.
University of Toronto president Tom Faulkner
said the commitment resolution was passed on
the principle that participation in formation of
policy at a congress, means living with that
policy.
Faulkner said unions withdrawing after
policy is formed wreak havoc with the budget.
"If members do not announce their intention
to withdraw early in the congress, CUS would
be left a greyhound bus with a Volkswagen engine," he said.
Finance commissioner Peter Simmie of Manitoba made the annual plea for voluntary levy
increases by rich unions.
He said $3,000 was pledged during the final
plenary, which would cover the projected deficit.
Finance committee chairman Dave Hoye, of
UBC, said a program pared to the bones still
required a fee levy increase from 65 to 75
cents per student. President Hugh Armstrong
said the union could not exist if the program
was cut below its present level.
The mistake in last year's budget was a
double entry of $26,000 in revenues receivable.
Consequently, the secretariat spent the $26,000
twice. The error was not noticed until early
August.
But profits of roughly $18,000 from CUS's
hostels for students visiting Expo in Montreal
and a budget saving of $11,000 put the books in
the black.
UBC experiencing general growth
but registration problems small
By WENDY CARTER
The number of students flocking to UBC
could exceed 18,000 this year.
But it probably won't.
Last year 17,500 students were registered. So
far, this year's total shows 16,880. Of these, 4700
students are in arts.
These totals will be increased by late registrations, especially of graduate students.
According to J. E. Parnall, UBC registrar, the
university is only experiencing a general growth.
A larger increase should occur in several years,
he said. At the moment, the number of incoming
high school students remains about the same as
last year.
Statistics, of course, will change before the
year is out. Last year, 275 students failed to complete their studies at UBC.
"It's incredible how quietly and smoothly
things have gone this year," Parnall said. "There
seems to be fewer disgruntled students than usual
at registration time."
By Friday, 8,500 cars were registered. This
exceeds last year's total at the same time, by 300
cars.
Two clogged areas thwarted traffic into UBC
during registration week. Monday, the University
Boulevard congestion was eased with the opening
of the other two lanes. No further problem is
expected.
There seems to be on immediate solution to
the bottleneck at 41st Avenue and Marine Drive.
The ultimate solution appears to be the new 16th
Avenue, due for completion in several years.
For perpetual speeders, UBC housing czar
Sir Ouvry Roberts gives a word of advice. During the UBC summer session, 1,016 traffic of-
ing the UBC summer session, 1016 traffic of-
warnings were given.
Total university force includes four senior
officers, 19 patrolmen, and a sole patrol car.
However, they claim effectiveness.
Sir Ouvry had two requests for drivers Monday.
The first is to double check those parking
stickers so that the cars are placed in the correct
lots.
The second involves those drivers without
the preferred parking permits. All such cars are
not allowed in the main university area until 2:30
p.m. Monday to Friday.
Price hike hit
It costs you 11 cents more per dollar to fill your
tummy this year at campus food outlets.
And if anyone has acid indigestion as a result, it's
officials of the Alma Mater Society.
An 11 per cent increase in food prices at the nine
outlets operated by the administration on campus was
passed May 18 by the Board of Governors—without the
approval of the Student Advisory Committee on Food
Services.
The added net revenue of an estimated $159,245 a
year is to pay for the food facilities in the new Student
Union Building. But both Dave Hoye, Alma Mater
Society treasurer, and Shaun Sullivan, AMS President,
express concern that the prices were increased without
the Student Advisory Committee's approval.
The increase follows the residence rent increase of
July 1st. The increase which was passed by the Housing
Advisory Committee in November of 1966 amounts to
about $8 per month. It covers increased food and labor
costs.
"We are looking for students who want to sit on
advisory committees for food, residences, the book store,
the library, and parking and traffic. We think the
committees can do a lot for the interests of students,"
Sullivan said.   "The food price hike is the major problem

FOLLOWING CONFLICT with campus brownshirts, UBC's arts-hippy community continues its
be-in in the quad east of the new music building. Folk-rock sound brought the fuzz and
Dean Walter Gage but peaceful love  negotiation settled dispute over "noise".
Loving policy triumphs,
solves arts-fuzz clash
By STAN PERSKY
Some of our best be-ins are fuzzy.
It was Friday afternoon, warm and sunny.
Inside the armory, thousands of people were
being filtered (herded?) through the wooden labyrinths of registration. Across the way, in the
auditorium, other hundreds were taking a compulsory aptitude test administered by personnel,
. v< blocking in IBM slots with computer answers.
Between these two architectural abortions, on
the newly constructed Future Riot Square or
MacKenzie Quad, the arts council and several
hundred scholastic citizens were holding an
afternoon concert. After giving away a 116-page
anti-calendar and liberating a thousand or so
..lockers, the council was demonstrating it meant
rock dances to be free activities, too. Everything
had been arranged by arts entrepeneur Roger
Schiffer, who is good at arranging things.

night  owl  cop
By HUGH TAYLER
Alma Mater Society president Shaun Sullivan reported heavy traffic in the parking lots
early Monday morning.
^ Out driving for fresh air, around 12:30 a.m.
^Sullivan noticed a large hole, mounds of dirt,
construction debris and traffic barriers blocking the entrance to the "A" lot.
He also spotted two small cars, without their
headlights on, driving in the lot. When he attempted to chase them he caught  glimpses  of
red jackets in the beams of his lights.
After some  rapid  and  erratic  dashes from
one end of the lot to the other, both cars escaped between concrete blocks where Sullivan
•was unable to follow in his larger vehicle.
"Perhaps  they  went   to   see  if  there   were
better spaces in the  "C"  lot," he  said.   "It is
traditional for engineers to find the best parking
'  spots the last night before classes."
"The engineers are known as good, serious,
^students and they would wish to be bright and
'early for their 8:30 a.m. lectures."
There was no connection between the entrance blockage, the small cars and the loud,
repeated, explosions heard late Sunday evening
in the Lower Mall area, he said.
An anonymous engineer, asked for comment,
explained, "Bullshit! It was the frats."

its wars and aggressions and draft boards.

Sound idyllic, huh? Or just an ordinary love
hippie student activist afternoon.
Well, not quite, Along came the local campus
fuzz, equipped with walkie-talkie. The man conducting the aptitude tests felt harassed by the
sound. And of course, the way to make a complaint is not to talk to the people bugging you,
but to hit the panic button: troops, tanks, surface-
to-air missies. The campus cop was vaguely annoyed that his authority signals didn't bring the
revellers to their knees. One of the arts council
strangers gave him the I'm-a-citizen routine.
Then along came the RCMP, without a horse
but with what horses drop. He had been trained
to handle dangerous students without provoking
newspaper headlines. Arts argued that its principle was to negotiate directly with complainants.
Campus fuzz wanted the sound turned off, now.
RCMP: "I will not accept responsibility until we
locate the complainant. You come with me."
In the quad, arts explained the situation to
the people — about democracy, free exchange,
coercion, etc. The route of the RCMP-arts-in-
custody voyage from quad to admin to armory
to quad in search of the complainant will be
found on page 33 of your geography textbook,
between the maps of Vasco da Gama and George
Vancouver.
Let's see, Who's next? Oh yes, Papa Panda
(alias Dean Walter Gage) seized the microphone
and ordered the performance to cease and desist.
The leading Loyalists, displaying remarkable
presence of stoned mind, innocently asked: "Can
we play one more song?" Papa Panda: "How
long will it take?" Loyalist: "Oh, about two
minutes."
During which, Arts, a grumpy Papa Panda,
and finally, the complainant (who turned out to
be a rather inoffensive, skinny rat-torturing
psychologist) negotiated an agreement that allowed the Loyalists to perform some whisper songs.
A few more public speeches followed, suggesting that the people always had in reserve the
alternative of resistance. Concert ended at 3:30
as planned.
That night arts listened to Singing Bear Victor
do a set of the Retinal Circus, conjuring up the
ghost voice of Bix Beiderbecke. Love.
Free, free, free—
they get it free
By NORMAN   GIDNEY
Ubyseey Council Reporter
Free anti-calendars, free lockers, free arts publications, a free
Arts and Politics conference and free dances—everything in the
arts council program is F-R-E-E.
And despite a deficit of $1,300 caused by the anti-calendar,
a 58-page course evaluation survey, arts is pushing ahead with
all kinds of free projects.. As a start, the arts council decided
in August that students should not have to pay additional fees
to get a locker in the Buchanan building.
The arts council, an amorphous government consisting of
every interested arts student headed by president Stan Persky,
vice-president Harley Rothstein and treasurer Russ Precious,
said the lockers would be free on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Alma Mater Society president Shaun Sullivan said Monday
that the AMS has no objection to the arts "free locker" policy.
"It's cutting their revenue," he said. (The education undergraduate society will make $2,000 from locker rentals this year.)
Persky said Monday in an interview that arts is trying to
establish a "good thing" and encouraging students to be "more
realistic about university life."
As part of this program, Persky said, arts is giving away
things — including the arts newspaper, the Moon, and "Songs
of Innocence and Experience" the anti-calendar.
Also planned is an Arts and Politics conference October 2-8
with five noon hour lectures by architect Arthur Erickson, American poet Robin Blaser, Indian poet Bill Reed, and Progressive
Worker Movement member, and former UBC student Peter
Cameron.
The conference will end with two days of seminars and discussions with the speakers at Cecil Green Park.
"They'll be dealing with political content in art and the
responsibility of the artist towards politics," said Persky.
Free dances and concerts by local rock bands are also part
of the arts scheme. "There are many rock groups in the arts
government who feel that free activities are necessary," said
Persky. Two music groups, Bear's Medicine Show and the United
Empire Loyalists, played free last week in Buchanan quadrangle.
"I'm against the pretentious imitation of government which
has made such a mess," explained Persky. "The AMS."
"I don't consider the AMS especially vicious or malevolent
but they promote a way of life I'm not interested in.
"They don't include enough of the human condition. We (arts
council) don't have the answers but can create conditions where
students can get together and discuss their problems."
Nine appointments made,
faculty changes and grows
The appointment of Dean Walter Gage as acting president
of UBC highlights a series of faculty changes and additions
during the summer.
Dean Gage will serve as acting president until January,
1968, when Dr. Frederick K. Hare will take over early next year.
Associates say Dean Gage pursues his duties in his UBC
office seven days a week.
Gage will continue as Dean of inter-faculty and student
affairs.
He is one of the two deans who were named deputies to the
president last October, after President John B. Macdonald
announced his resignation.
The other, Deputy William Armstrong of the Faculty of
Applied Science, will continue as deputy.
Other appointments announced during the summer included
that of Professor Leslie G. R. Crouch, a former president of the
Association of Professional Engineers of B.C., to the post of
assistant dean of applied science.
Crouch, a member of the UBC faculty since 1945, is currently professor of mineral engineering at UBC.
Armstrong said Crouch would chair committees in the
faculty of applied science. He will coordinate courses in a
study of new teaching methods and space needs within the
faculty.
Dr. Robert M. Grainger, currently director of the division
of dental research at the University of Toronto, was appointed
professor of restorative dentistry and director of UBC's dental
school clinic.
Dr. Richard V. Mattessich, currently associate professor of
business administration at the University of California at Berkeley, was appointed professor of accounting in the commerce
faculty.
Dr. Herbert P. Gush was appointed a full professor in
UBC's physics department.
Robert W. V. Dickerson, 35, was appointed assistant professor at UBC in 1965 but took two years' leave of absence to
work as a special adviser on taxation in the department of finance
and help review and revise tax legislation following the Carter
Report of the Royal Commission on Taxation.
Dr. Warren D. Kitts was named chairman of the animal
science division in UBC's faculty of agriculture. Page  4

SEPT. 19, 1967
Hey, kid!
Apparently hoping to delay the inevitable September flood of frosh, Buildings and Grounds last week
closed Agronomy Road, made holes in another, and
gleefully put together labyrinths in the parking lots
with immovable cement things.
We sympathize with Buildings and Grounds who
are obviously aware of the problem that's beginning to
obsess people who care about university education—
most frosh shouldn't be here.
Education guru Paul Goodman breaks down the
average gaggle of frosh this way:
Fifty per cent attend university only incidentally
with their attention focused on non-academic activities.
They come because they need the diploma.
Thirty per cent aren't particularly aware that they
need a sheepskin — they come because they are sheep
who've been learning lessons for 12 years and don't
know what else to do.
Fifteen per cent, says Goodman, are set on a specific
career and ate here to get grades—not to develop intellects.
Only five per cent want to learn something academically— and they are hampered by the others.
University administrations will admit, if pushed,
that Goodman's analysis is accurate.
What do they do about it? Well, this week assorted
bigwigs have been running around giggling "Tuum
Est" and other nice things at the herds of sheepskin
chasers, sheep, and careerists.
But most of them ate secretly happy with the degeneration of North American universities into custodial
systems which baby-sit on adolescents in the hope they
will "adjust" to their environment, although it is rarely
questioned whether the environment is worth adjusting
to.
Okay frosh, here goes: Tuum Est. Why are you
here?
BY GABOR MATE
Dear Frosh
• •
Open letter to first year students:
At your high school graduation ceremony you were
doubtless told, as have been generations of students before
you, that you are now "ready to leave behind the carefree
path of youth and embark upon the perilous journey of
real life." It you were told that, Ladies and Gentlemen, then
you were told a lie. For actually you entered real life only
once — the moment you were conceived in your mother's
womb, and you have been really living ever since. The problems you face here are no greater, in relation to yourselves,
than the problems you have faced at any time in your existence. You will not, for example, find the task of passing
your English course any harsher than you found the task
of keeping your underwear clean at the age of three and a
half. Nevertheless, Ladies and Gentlemen, you are in a new
environment and perhaps a few words of introduction to
this temple of learning are not out of order.
Many of you will encounter hitherto unseen situations
and problems, and very likely the most significant of your
university experiences will take place outside the classroom.
The associations you will form with other students will
have greater impact than the learned words of your professors, although there will be some of you who will not
have made a single new friend even after several years at
UBC. For this educational metropolis of 18,000 people can
be a very lonely place sometimes.
During you stay here you may acquire new insights,
new ideas and even new ideologies, and new ways of dealing with problems. Or, perhaps, all you will acquire is sixty
units and a piece of paper at the end of four years. Or, depending upon which fraternity you join, you may perchance
acquire venereal disease.
Perhaps you will lose a few hang-ups, perhaps your
mind, or perhaps your virginity. You may experience the

that such decadence is not your

You may put on a red jacket

Some of you will leave us

Others, approximately 45 per

Some of you, even without

'Happiness! What the hell good is it?"
—from the Fulcrum
UBC  PRESIDENT  HARE
(continued from page 1)
universities are veterans of more than 20 years
at McGill University, Montreal. He was appointed assistant professor of geography there and
rose to become dean of arts and science from
1962 to '64.
During a 90-minute interview with three
Ubyssey editors, Hare touched on everything
from, go-go girls to student participation in government. The interview will be published in a
later edition, but some of its main highlights
follow.
Discussing the role of a university, Dr. Hare
said:
"A university is an open system or it isn't a
university at all. It interacts with society at
every level, I think.
Clearly, I believe in the maximum possible
degree of freedom, and I really mean that. I
think there is a positive benefit to be had from a
lack of control."
"I am one of those much despised people
of liberal views, with a small T, who thinks
that in fact you get the highest energy response
out of a maximum possibe freedom of exchange."
His views on administration are unmistakable.
"The administraton is only a necessary evil.
I mean, a university is about intellectual things.
It has to be run, it's a machine, it somehow
has to go, you have to make sure that the ashtrays are emptied."
He terms the federal government decision
to place grants with a tax abatement system
under which he provincial government gets a
percentage of tax collections "a disastrous mistake."
"I'm appalled that it was done. I think that
it was clearly done as part of the crisis with
Quebec. I think that from the point of view of
the whole country, including Quebec, that it was
a very grave error for the federal fiscal people
to have backed out of this."
"In Britain the universities have fought
like steers to keep the tuition fees, because I
mean there is one more, different avenue of control than from the department of education and
science. But, equally, they have also fought for
the universal provision of grants to students.
No British student does in fact pay those fees,
bu the fees are there."
Noted for his empathy with students at McGill, Hare expressed hesitation in the case of
younger students at universities.
"The 17-year-old, the 18-year-old, is just a
wee bit clueless when he arrives. It is easy for
a student in a completely fre-> system to en'1
up four yars later having taken nothing bui
survey courses, in which thero is no depth pt
all. The crucial thing about an undrferadnat'
degree is that it develops critical faculty t>
distinguish between black and white, right and
wrong and so on. I don't believe you got that
way out of survey courses."
Dr.   Hare   said   Canadian  universities   must
work out their own answers to course content,
but again favored the British system.
"When you go to a British university to
read honors in a subject, you start off with
fundamental stuff, and it's assumed that you are
motivated and assumed that you have the background. You jolly well have to work."
He had this to say about exams, and their
detrimental effect on students:
"I personally dislike exams very much and
I am fully aware of the hateful consequences
of them. If we had a staff-student ratio such
that there really could be a genuine personal
tutor system in Canadian universities, I would
prefer to seek until there is assessment of some
sort, based on essay writing or performed projects, rather than the present way.
"I think competition or at least the achievement of a goal is a necessary part of the intellectual training process. I believe that there must
be some test, but I don't like the three-hour examination taken at the end of a session, although
I see no alternative to it at the moment with
the existing staff/student ratio, which is a millstone around our necks, everywhere."
The appointment of Dr. Hare climaxed the
screening of 101 prospective successors to Dr.
John A. Macdonald, who retired last June.
Born in Wylye, England, Dr. Hare was educated at Windsor School and at King's College
of the University of London, where he graduated
in 1939.
In 1939-40 he was lecturer in geography at
the University of Manchester. In 1941 he joined
the British Air Ministry as an operational
weather forecaster and remained one during the
Second World War.
After the war, he came to Canada and took
his Ph.D. degree at the French-language University of Montreal in 1950.
He was appointed to his present post at Brik-
beck College in August, 1966.
Suds guzzlers on
WUS pub crawl
The UBC World University Service committee is holding an interfaculty pub crawl Friday
in the name of WUS charities.
The pub crawl, a race from Brock Hall at
noon to five Vancouver pubs and back by undergraduate society sponsored beer drinkers, is
WUS's contribution to SHARE. The latter is an
international fund raised by universities to build
hospitals and student facilities in underdeveloped
countries.
WUS chairman Dave Zirnhill said Monday
for an entry fee of $10 to $100 an undergraduate
■ "Ciety can sponsor one beer guzzler.
Object of the event, he said, is to race against
:•■? clock in quaffing a total of seven beers at
; ve different pubs.
The winner who arrives back at Brock Hall
in the fastest time gets his entry fee back as a
prize and the remainder goes to SHARE.
To be or not to be
—educated that is
By KIRSTEN EMMOTT
Ubyssey Associate Editor
"Tuum Est", motto of this university, can be translated
"it is up to you". You own decisions are going to affect what,
if anything, you learn here, and one of the first you most
make is what to do about The System.
Too many people come to college because it's the thing
to do. They continue with the old high school games, concern
themselves mainly with clothes and sex and drinking parties.
Some can keep it up for the whole four years or even longer.
Others pull out of it after a year or so.
And then what? When you do realize what you're here
for, a lot of your education will strike you as pointless or
irrelevant.
You will see how little you got of classes, and regret all
the time you wasted on committing trivia to memory.
You will begin to know what education really is: an
expansion of the horizons of the mind, a curiosity that extends
far beyond textbook and lecture. All the fun and games are
pure velvet.   If they're all you've got, you've got nothing.
Unfortunately, UBC is designed for the textbook-and-
lecture-mind. Your mind, dear frosh, and the minds of the
mass of others who are still asleep. It measures your mind
by determining how many details you can write down in a
specific three-hour period/ This is unreasonable and you will
know it.   You'll probably have to turn to the Free University.
This is a pity. If intelligent people know a better way to
instill knowledge, why don't they use it?
Well, see what happens when they try. Last year Dr.
Richard Warren of the microbiology department tried to teach
second-year science students some microbial genetics by describing the original experiments and tracing developments.
He was hampered slightly by his overestimation of the
technical vocabularies of the students; still, he rightly thought
that following in the footsteps of those early scientists, perceiving their insights, and giving the reasons for their deductions would be more valuable than reciting accepted theories,
and could even be very fascinating.
Warren believes that science (like all knowledge) is a
living, growing thing; he knows that static facts are only a
superficial aspect of real scientific learning. He attempted
to depart from the usual talking-textbook method of lecture.
Yet so unused to such a departure was Warren's class that
he was met by massive hostility. A great deal of childish
temper was displayed in the confrontation. Students complained they did not understand what he was trying to do.
that he hadn't warned them of his radical intentions.
Isn't that a damaging statement for a group of university
students to make? Are we really so tied to the high school
mentality that we're incapable of relating to a really intelligent
method of teaching?
There's no need for Warren and the profs who think like
him to meet hisses and apathy when they try to show us what
education is really all about. Students, especially frosh, should
realize this and decide now what they're here for.
"Nothing in the world," wrote Richard Bissell of his alma
mater, "execpt being in love, is as exciting as being an undergraduate at Harvard."
UBC can be like that too, if that's the way you make it.
MATE
(continued from page 4)
then at least you should insist
on writing your own script.
Last year, for example, we
had a university president who
told us that our university
should not be used as a vehicle
for social reform, that to protest too loudly the injustices
of our society is to harm "academic freedom." But this is
precisely the kind of decision
that is to be made by us, and
nobody else. And now that you
are part of us, Ladies and
Gentlemen, the burden of
decision rests on your shoulders
as well.
But before you make decisions, be sure you have taken
the effort to seek out the facts
and have kept an open mind
to all the arguments, no matter
where and from whom they
originate. There is nothing you
should accept on faith, Ladies
and Gentlemen — not God, not
your textbooks, not Moms'
apple pie, and no — not even

Frosh committee plans
orientation sessions
A song-and-dance session is not enough for frosh, says the
Frosh Orientation Committee.
This year, for the first time, the committee is offering frosh
information regarding student government.
The information is taking the form of four discussion nights,
to be held in the Lower Mall main lounge.
"We hope to gather people from all corners of the university
and community to supply the meat for an open program of discussion," said committee member Doug Halverson, arts 4.
"Our aim is to enable anyone to manoeuver his way around
this place with a relative degree of understanding. Everyone
is invited, not just frosh," he said.
The program will be called Probe.
The first discussion, held Monday evening, centered around
the role of the university in the community.
Tonight the topic is Experiments in Education. Wednesday's
discussion concerns university government, with AMS council
members and student activists, including Stan Persky, Gabor
Mate and Nancy Corbett, speaking.
Thursday will serve as a wrap-up with the topic as the
University and the World Out There, with special emphasis on
the Third World and the oppressed in Canada. Members of
the Company of Young Canadians will speak.

CUS Congress reports
CREEPING ISOLATIONISM?
UBCs proposal is squashed,
congress says CUS worldly
LONDON (CUP)—A UBC sponsored plan to
eliminate any Canadian Union of Students
activity in international affairs has been squashed by the union's thirty-first congress.
An isolationist policy was passed in a commission meeting on the third day of the congress,
but was later defeated 74-37 in a final plenary
session.
The push for isolationism was led by the
UBC delegation to the conference.
The delegation said the International Student
Conference and the International Union of
Students are both cold war tools, detrimental to
the development of a co-operative student community.
CUS has associate status in the ISC, which
it will now retain pending an investigation of
the ISC's attempt to free itself from any involvement with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.
The ISC has been steadily losing members
and prestige since it was revealed as a CIA fund
repository earlier this year.
UBC's Don Munton, speaking for the withdrawal   from   both   unions,   said   present   CUS
CUS formulates
Vietnam policy
LONDON (CUP) — Vietnam came up for
discussion by Canadian Union of Students Congress delegates.
Delegates passed resolutions on education
and action on the Vietnam  war.
The action motion, proposed by Dalhousie
and Carleton, called for American cessation of
bombing in Vietnam and surrounding countries
and total withdrawal from the area.
It called on the Canadian government to
openly urge American disengagement, and to
drop its policy of "quiet diplomacy".
CUS and its member institutions also voted
to aid draft objector organizations in the U.S.
by providing them with communication, co-
ordinative and similar technical  support.
The resolution also calls for support of blood
drives and fund drives for victims of the war
on both sides.
This program is to be accompanied with
participation in the "International Week of Support for Vietnam" organized on a global basis by
the International Union of Students. The week
coincides with Remembrance Day, Nov.  11.
The education motion proposed by Dalhousie
and Carleton calls for Vietnam awareness by
Canadian students. The program includes invitations to the National Liberation Front to
send students through Canada's universities to
acquaint them first-hand with the activities of
the NLF.
The rest of the program involves the preparation of bibliographies and circulation of films
on Vietnam.
policy was trying to have a foot in two camps.
"Neither ISC nor IUS are relevant to the real
issues—the participation and role of the student
in the quality of education.
"CUS should free itself from the ties of the
cold war dichotomy—not in isolationism but to
act independently."
Manitoba's Gordon Mackie called UBC's position "total self-deception, a voice crying in the
wilderness".
In his speech to the congress, IUS vice-
president, Vlodeck Konarski, urged CUS to accent its responsibilities and join his 87 member
union. Desks were loudly thumped when he
said: "The IUS is committed to fight neocolonialism because the majority of the world's
students expect that commitment. Our role
is to be present wherever injustice and exploitation exist.
"Those who favor the medieval concept of
the student as a student, the student as such, are
no longer heard in the international student
movement," he said.
Konarsky and nine other representatives
from the national and international students
unions spoke to plenary after the commission
passage of the isolationist position and before
plenary reversal.
Retiring CUS president Doug Ward said passage of the isolation resolution "would put CUS
outside history, unable to tackle the real problems of students."
In official greetings from other unions Peter
Herro of Norway said, "We need Canadian
students in world affairs. I ask you not to
disappoint us."
Carlos Celle of Chile said, "It is the duty of
all people to be concerned about the oppressed
people of the world.
"Canadian students, must you wait for others
to move, or will you start immediately?" he
asked.
Ireland's Richard O'Toole urged CUS to transcend cold war trivialities and begin the vital
international co-operation.
Union Generale de Studiantes du Quebec
president Pierre LeFrancois challenged the
English-speaking union of student to stop isolating itself from the global  community.
Relations between CUS and UGEQ will be
determined, he said, by whether or not CUS
decides to participate in "the fight for national
liberation and justice throughout the world."
CUS must fight control of Canda's economy
and national destiny by the United States, he
added.
"UEGQ is determined to play an active and
rrvVtant role in the struggle for a Quebec that's
master in its own house."
Alexander Chicherov, vice-president of the
Committee of Youth Organizations of the USSR,
cited "the very real problem of getting students
to involve themselves in revolutionary movements."
CUS Congress
defines goals
LONDON (CUP)—The Canadian Union of Students' 31st
Congress issued the Declaration of the Canadian Student to
define the goals and purposes of the organization.
Under these guidelines, the Congress held here Sept. 2 to
9, expanded CUS' program of universal accessibility to higher
education and urged analysis of education quality.
The Declaration defines education as serving society by
developing the full potential of all citizens and: helping to
achieve equality of the essential conditions of human living.
The idea of the student as a citizen rather than the student
as a student dominates the Declaration.
The Declaration urges students to emerse themselves in
intellectual pursuit but also to engage in fundamental action
to confront society with discoveries and to promote consequent
action to bring reforms into practice.
The students' right to establish student associations is
defined and also that these associations must be free to ally
themselves with other groups to promote continuous revolution.
The student is also a full member the academic community
with the right and duty to make basic decisions concerning his
intellectual activity and the goals of the educational institution.
The final document was a compromise between last year's
vague declaration and a rewrite by CUS Associate Secretary
John Cleveland, which specifically advocated student syndicalism.
The universal accessibility resolution (UNAC) claims that
"the student, as citizen, has the duty to assure that education
can be pursued by every individual without material, economic,
social or psychological barriers created by the absence of real
equality of essential conditions."
The educational quality resolutions criticized the present
methods of university teaching as "essentially destructive,"
where "the operating principle implicit in the instructor's
activity is that the student cannot be trusted.
"The goal of education in a democratic society should be
to assist students to become individuals," the resolution reads.
In an interview outside plenary hall, Waterloo's Tom
Patterson, one of UNAC's draftees, said:
"I see UNAC and the education quality resolutions as one
with the declaration of the Canadian student. Successful
implementation would lead to social revolution."
Rightists students' union
planned by U of A group
LONDON (CUP) — In an attempt to thwart the activist
efforts of the Canadian Union of Students, the University of
Alberta is trying to found a breakaway, right wing, non-activist
union.
The U of A withdrew from CUS after the 1966 CUS congress in opposition to the move toward student involvement in
society at national and international levels.
CUS told U of A one observer would be tolerated at the
congress, but five delegates came to spend the week lobbying
for non-involvement in anything but affairs immediately and
directly concerned with students.
Al Anderson, president of the U of A student union, said:
"CUS should limit itself to areas of direct student concern.
We are against the concept of the student as a citizen."
Rod McKenzie, of the University of Calgary, one of the
councils partially in sympathy with the U of A, said CUS
should be a service and education organization.
"To use an example, we should act on improving Indian
education but not on improving Indian housings," he said.
Former SUPA  man
elected CUS president
LONDON (CUP)—A past member of the national council
of the Student Union for Peace Action was elected president
for 1968-69 of the Canadian Union of Students Sept. 8.
Peter Warrian, from the University of Waterloo, defeated
Stephen Bigsby of Victoria University.
Warrian ran on a program which supported the Declaration of the Canadian student
passed at the congress. He said it projects
a more active role for the student in both
education and society.
"The first principle for CUS is education
itself, but not separated from society," he
said.
He stressed the need for education to be
something   more   than   the   training   process Warrian
which the influence of government, big business and bureaucracy has produced in Canadian universities.
"If education rather than training is to occur the alternatives will have to be arrived at," he said.
"We want conscious students, not unconscious trainees." Tuesday, September 19, 1967

AMS SCARED
No money, no power
By AL BIRNIE
Ubyssey Associate Editor
The myth says that the people control the
government.
The government, therefore, must do what the
. people vote for.
Unfortunately, this is not like it is.
For the 'benefit of the uninitiated, and the students (approximately 18,000) who do not attend
student council meetings or sit on student court,
T we offer the parable of Persky and the playpen
politicians.
Or,   how  politicians   put  paper   and  power
above people and promises.
"^      On March 22 last year UBC students, for the
second time in a month, rejected a proposed $3
Alma Mater Society fee increase.
A strong publicity campaign had in great de-
tail outlined the need for such an increase in the
$29 fee —■ rising costs forcing cutback in undergraduate society, clubs, Special Events, and Academic Activities spending if an increase was not
approved.
** The referendum failed by only 30 votes —
needing a two-thirds majority to pass but getting
only 3,837 in favor versus 1,965.
A resolution at the fall general meeting to cut
down the athletic budget of $75,000 to givetrea-
surer Dave Hoye's economy a little breathing
room went down from strong 'jock' opposition.
Hoye and other campus money-men, figuring
that nothing more couud be done, resigned themselves to a year of tight money, cutback in cam-
k pus events, and general gloomyness.
But not Stan Persky, president, and the Arts
Undergraduate Society.
Persky and his friends wear long hair, and
grubby blue jeans. They are also human beings
who love people.
• LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE
Persky and his friends — Russ Precious, Har-
ley Rothstein, and others — were elected in
February to lead the Arts US.
The first thing that the new executive did
was to lead the Arts US out of their cubbyhole
in Brock and to the people.
~" The executive held their meetings in Buchanan lounge, or in the auditorium cafeteria. Anyone in the area, Artsman or not, could vote on
what was to be done.
The idea is that anyone who wants to do
something comes to a meeting and talks about
it, gathers together people who want to do it,
* with financial help from the Arts US if possible.
Democracy in action.
The  Arstmen   are   bugged   by   bureaucrats.
When, in trying to find office space in Buchanan
they got the rounaround, they built one in the
lounge out of old lumber, cellophane, and donat-
"- ed labor.
They also got bugged by the fact that many
good programs would have to be cut back this
year because of the defeat of the fee referendum.
So they asked Arts students if they would give
$2 each to improve the situation.
The expected $11,000 in revenue was to be
used — $2,500 for the Arts anti-calendar, $2,000
each for The Ubyssey and Special Events, and
$1,000 for the Contemporary Arts Festival.
Also, all Arts dances this year would be free,
Arts students would publish several magazines,
"s and the rest of the money would be used for
whatever good purposes came up throughout the
year.
In the largest turnout of Artsmen in Arts
history, the people voted 1033 to 321 (76 per cent)
in favor of the increase.
CREEPING PERSKYISM
At this point, the machinery of the student
government bureaucrats began to clank into
action against "creeping Perskyism".
Ever since Persky's election, the steel-trap
minds of the shiny-faced student councillors had
experienced growing uneasyness at the antics,
let alone the appearance, of Persky's people.
As long as Percky contended himself with
rousing the rabble in the rats caf, the student
government felt he was pretty harmless and
^? hopefully eventually would go away.
However, here he was authorized by the students of his faculty to collect $11,000 and use
it as he, not the student council, saw fit.
To the bureaucrat mind money is power.
Persky was taking power away from the bureaucrats, and giving it, gasp, to the great unwashed,
meaningless. No more prestige.
He must be stopped. If student government
ceased to have power, their whole existence was
When Persky asked student council to request
that the Board of Governors collect $2 more
from Arts students and give it to him (council
was asked, in effect, to give up some of their
power) they voted it down.
Persky presented a letter from lawyer and
member of the UBC Senate David Freeman
stating that in his opinion it was perfectly legal
within the requirements of the constitution for
the administration to collect money for Arts, yet
COUNCIL VOTED IT DOWN
"It's illegal, it's unconstitutional, it can't be
done," chattered AMS president Shaun Sullivan,
the fresh-faced Liberal club president who
grinned his way to victory over 'radical' Bob
Cruise.
RESPONSIVE STRENGTHENING
In his campaign statement in The Ubyssey,
Sullivan promised the "strengthening of undergraduate societies and their programs and a
creation of an AMS more responsive to the needs
of the students."
So the arts students wanted their undergraduate society strengthened, and what was
council's response—to screw them in the ear,
figuratively speaking.
As a sop, council decided to send the case to
the legal beagles at student court (appointed by
council) and they of course, affirmed that the
fee question was unconstitutional.
Law president Jim Taylor told the student
courtiers he felt the proposed 'tax on Arts student would lead to LOSS OF CONTROL for
the AMS.
Why was this bad, he was asked.
"Well, it would be . . . illegal," stammered
Taylor.  A killing condemnation.
Persky, writing in the Arts newspaper,
Moon, summed it up: "What the AMS was fighting for in this case was to make sure the undergrad societies don't become stronger. Arts, on
the other hand, is arguing in favor of some decentralization, a shift of power away from central government into the hands of the people."
The fact that the AMS constitution is very
unclear on this point is undeniable by the fact
that a very reputable lawyer felt that the fee
transfer was perfectly legal, while the student
court felt the opposite. The AMS did not try to
clear up this ambiguity, but left it lying, unattended and bleeding.
WONDERLAND
In any event, why could not the AMS
simply have forwarded the request to the B of
G, who would get the administration to collect
it and pay it to Arts? Everybody would have
been happy. Except student councillors robbed
of their power.
"What could I do?" smiled Sullivan sweetly.
"We   can't   go   against   the  constitution."
What means more, paper or people?
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you
can make words mean so many different
things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty.
"which is to be master — that's all."
EPILOGUE: Despite the bureaucrats, the
Arts people still managed to do some good
things over the summer.—send the anti-calendar
to all Arts students, publish sporadic Moons
(stencils available outside the Arts office—tak"
one, fill it up, it will be printed) and are giving
away lockers free.
"We really feel alienated from student government," said Persky Monday. "They promote
a way of life that we do not agree with, a
strange notion of centralized government. We
want to serve the people directly."
Persky and the people now feel that th?
whole fee referendum was a mistake.
"Arts students already pay $150,000 to thp
AMS and get maybe $400 back. Any increas-
would be even more of an imposition."
Free association is now where it's at.
"All  exchanges  between   people   should  be
free. Lockers, publications,  events, money. Wp
will accept voluntary contributions, and prom
ise to use them in such a way as to bring tang-
ibe results to the students."
Quote from treasurer Dave Hoye, overheard
talking to an engineer. "We're not going to give
Arts any more money because they can't handle
it in a responsible manner."
Remember what the Doormouse said.
Arts  anti-calendar
sparks thinking
By NORMAN GIDNEY
Best read book at UBC this month wasn't Valley of
the Dolls or Human Sexual Response but a 58-page student-
written volume called Songs of Innocence and of
Experience.
Known also as the Arts Undergraduate Society anti-
calendar, the book was dedicated to William Blake, an
intellectual mystic-poet.
More than 4,000 copies were
printed during the summer and mailed
free to UBC arts students.
The anti-calendar was more than
five months in the making. It started as
an idea of the newly elected arts council in February, and progressed to
questionnaires and evaluation by student volunteers during the summer.
Printing was  accomplished  during
one hectic weekend in August when all
four AMS mimeographs were kept running for about 40
hours churning out  120,000 pieces of paper.
"Students have raved about it," said arts council
president Stan Persky on Monday..
"Most professors have praised it and feel it's a good
thing for students to be in. It reveals that students, on the
whole, are happy with their teachers.
"The anti-calendar also says the problems of the
university are beyond the present scope of the students
and professors. Problems like overcrowding and the
insipidity of survey courses should be handled by the
students and professors."
The problems pointed out by the  responses in
anti-calendar, the authors feel, are:
—overcrowded classrooms that choke learning
—survey courses where content is superficial
—robot-like language labs
—the lecture system with no discussion
—the   grading  system  based   on   idiotic   notions
competition
—too many courses  (why not three  course at five
units instead of the present five courses)
"These are big problems," the anti-calendar states.
"Unless we begin to get some realistic changes, the quality
of education here will continue to be dismally mediocre."

FRATERNITY
FALL RUSH
Fraternities' Role
on Campus
This special insert in The Ubyssey is twofold in purpose.
In the first place, it is intended to further enhance our efforts
in seeking new members to replace those who have recently
graduated. Secondly, it is hoped that it will give you a greater
insight into the fraternity system as it exists at the University
of British Columbia.
The Meaning of Rush
A fraternity's prime responsibility is to the University, but
in addition carries on a balanced
program of educational, social,
and athletic activity. All the
fraternities have their own
homes where out-of-town students may live in an excellent
dents may live in an excellent
environment.
Room and board prices vary
with the group but are generally lower than residence prices.
Since there are only about
twenty-five living in each
house, the food is also more interesting than the Gourmet
cooking  of  U.B.C.'s  residences.
Invitation to membership is
a mutual arrangement. You
must like the group and the
group must like you. Formal
invitation is extended after a
period of "rushing" which begins on Monday, Sept. 25th, and
which enables the students and
the fraternities to find where
they would best fit. However,
before a student can participate
in the formal rush period he
must first register in the TV
Room in North Brock above the
Mildred Brock Lounge. This
registration period runs from
Monday, Sept. 18th, until Friday, Sept. 22nd.
After you have registered for
rushing, individual members of
the fraternities you have selected to rush will call on you to
deliver an invitation to their
functions. They will be more
than   willing    to   answer   any
Tfie Inter-Fraternity
Council Executive

Rush is simply that time
of year when U.B.C.'s 15
fraternities pledge new
members. As a rushee, you
go to the TV Room above
the Mildred Brock Lounge
in North Brock any time
during this week. Here,
representatives of the Inter Fraternity Council will
help you to register.   From
President
Rick  French
there, it is up to the fraternities to contact you and

entirely your own. If you
choose to join, you become
a pledge in the fraternity.
As such, you participate
fully in the group's activities while learning about it
and getting to know the
brothers better. Later in the
term, you will be initiated
into full membership.
The Spring term is the
open season for fraternity
activity at U.B.C. with the
invitation of the Fall
Pledges, and preparation
for Mardi Gras and Songfest. Mardi Gras is one full
week of fraternity functions: the Pep Rally in the
Gym,   the   King   Candidate
Contest, the Cake Auction,
and the Grand Finale, the
Mardi Gras Costume Ball
at the Showmart. Last
year's proceeds were $20,-
000 which was donated to
the Vancouver Association
for  Retarded   Children.
Song Fest is a musical
competition among the
Campus Fraternities and
Sororities which takes place
at the Queen Elizabeth
Theatre. The parties afterward at houses round off a
very  enjoyable  evening.
Each fraternity climaxes
its social year with a formal.
questions you may have about
the fraternity system or their
fraternity in particular.
To be eligible to register for
rushing you must have 15 units
credit, or, if you have been on
campus for a year you will need
only 12 units. This requirement
is in keeping with every student's academic objectives.
However, we feel, as does every
other campus club or organization, that a student needs a
secondary interest aside from
his studies. Therefore, we invite you to join us in our solution to this problem.
If you have any questions
about fraternities, please approach any member or call us
in the I.F.C. office in the Brock
extension. We shall be only too
pleased to help you. Best of
luck in the new school year.

Welcome to Fall Rush
Quotations from Chairman Rick
CHAIRMAN RICK
Gentlemen:
I would like to take this opportunity to extend to
you, on behalf of all UBC fraternity members, a sincere
invitation to take part in Fall Rush. Rush is a time of
mutual evaluation during which the rushee must first
determine whether or not fraternity life is for him. If
he makes a positive decision, he must then choose which
one of the fraternity memberships offered to him seems
most attractive.
Racial, religious or colour barriers to membership,
dangerous hazing and other anachronistic practices so
often associated in the public mind with fraternities have
long since been disposed of at U.B.C. All U.B.C. chapters
are free to judge an individual solely on his personal
merits.
The benefits and opportunities afforded a member
are as diverse and as numerous as the brothers past and
present, of the fifteen fraternities on campus. Fraternities
do not stifle individual indentity and initiative but
encourage their development to the fullest degree. At
the same time the system provides a focus for social and
athletic activity which might otherwise be lacking in
the impersonality of our University.
Unfortunately, the most meaningful and most valuable aspects of fraternity membership do not lend themselves to brief summary. These aspects arise primarily
from the close man to man associations which form
among jthe brothers.
I can only add my personal wishes for a successful
year and my assurance that, when you decide to see for
yourself what the fraternity system has to offer, our
welcome will be a warm and sincere one.
RICK FRENCH,
President, IFC. Tuesday, September 19, 1967

Proposed residence school
gets councils approval
By CHARLOTTE HAIRE
A proposed informal residential college in
Totem Park was approved by student council
Monday night.
Over the next eight months, three classes
are  scheduled for  the residences.
Totem park has no classrooms in the traditional structural sense. Instead, the students
will gather in one of the many lounge areas, in
a seminar-type room, in the canteen, or in the
dining room over a cup of coffee.
Two regular sections of English 100 and one
of French 120 will be taught in the residential
setting.
A report, submitted to council by Don
Munton, first vice-president of the Alma Mater
Society, said that the initial work on the project was a result of contact with Dr. Charles
Harwood, Dean of Fairhaven College, at a conference on academic reform held at the University of Oregon during May of this year.
Harwood describes the idea behind Fair-
haven College as follows:
"Universities already large cannot become
small. The increasing demand for higher education and the growing number of young men
and women in the college age precludes the
possibility of a reversal in size.
"But a growing institution can avoid the
anonymity of the large university by breaking
itself up into units of a more modest size in
which students and faculty can work closely
together in planning and conducting the educational process.
The cluster-college idea, which has been
tried on a number of campuses all across the
country, offers an opportunity to restore the
advantages of a small college while at the same
time making full use of the superior facilities—
better laboratories, larger libraries, and well-
staffed academic departments—of a much larger
institution.
The AMS report said that the idea of a residential classes was suggested in the report of
President Macdonald's Committee on Academic
The report said that the project does not
represent a radical realignment of the educational system, but rather is a very minor reform aimed at correcting a number of specific
evils.
Recruiting of students for the experimental
classes was restricted to residents of Totem
Park.
A letter explaining the nature of the project
and including a form that was to be returned if
the student was interested, was sent to the 240
freshmen  allocated  a Totem  Park room.
More than 100 affirmative replies were received.
The residential classes begin on the morning of Tuesday, Sept.  22.
Student representation
this year's protest goal
By JOHN DUFORT and D. JOHN LYNN
Canadian University Press
In 1965 it was "Abolish Tuition Fees"; in
1966 it was "End the War in Viet Nam". This
year the theme of activist students on campuses
across the country will likely be "Student Representation in University Government".
Traditionally the domain of the Administration and a Board of Governors filled with
prominent businessmen and generous benefactors, university government in the past ten
years has been opening up more and more to
professors, who insist on having a say in the
policies  their   university  follows.
Former Berkeley president Clark Kerr's
term "multiversity" has encouraged a good deal
of research into university governing structures, and quite early in the game the student
argument for representation was heard, and
heeded.
The idea is based on the premise that the
university is undemocratic in structure, and
that its policies should reflect the feelings of
the "total university community" — including
students, professors, administrators, and governments.
Ontario's Duff-Berdahl Commission on University Government paid lip service to the suggestion that universities accord students a role
in their decision-making bodies. Quebec's Parent Report came out even stronger for the idea,
but both combined to plant the seed of an idea
in the minds of both administrators and students.
There are many joint student-administration
committees considering the question, and already students are sitting on senates and senate
committees in several Canadian universities.
However, over the summer the first serious attempts to get freely elected student representa-
v tion on university Boards of Governors met
with failure.
A private bill reforming the charter of the
University of Western Ontario was the first
battlefield. The original bill, submitted by John
White, MPP for London South, on behalf of the
university administration, contained a clause
Y giving students indirect representation on the
Board of Governors, through a former faculty
member or a UWO graduate at least one year
out of university. This clause was discarded in
the private bills committee after chairman
A. B. R. Lawrence (PC-Russel) compared it to
aparteid in South Africa, where the black man
* can only be represented in parliament by a
white man. Inserted in its place was a provision
for direct representation on the board.
However, the UWO administration and the
London establishment maintained their staunch
opposition to direct student representation, and
brought pressure to bear on the government to
change the clause. The administration at one
point threatened to withdraw the entire bill if
it did not get its way.
The London Free Press on April first ran an
editorial criticizing the idea of a student voice
on the Board of Governors, calling it the first
part of a long-range plan of the Canadian Union
of Students to get a major voice in the management of Canadian universities. It claimed the
present board at UWO was unwise to have made
the suggestion of even indirect representation.
"They should have foreseen their effort to be
fair would be used as a springboard to seek a
board seat for an undergraduate. And that seat,
if obtained, will be merely a new base from
which CUS will seek additional representation."
The editorial goes on to say that:
"A student on the university board of, governors makes about as much sense as high school
students on a board of education, patients on a
hospital trust, apprentices on an international
union's executive, or civil servants in parliament.
"An undergraduate becomes an alumnus, a
high school student becomes a man, a patient
cured, an apprentice having served his time or
a civil servant retired might well serve on such
boards, but undergraduates on a university board
of governors, no."
The rest of the editorial condemns CUS as
the national "secretatriat" which directs organized minorities on Canada's campuses, issues
"directives, and is organizing student protests
and planning riots."
When the bill arrived in the legislature,
Premier Robarts, whose riding is London North,
declared the government's opposition to the
clause in question, and so Conservative members
who might have voted in favor of direct student
representation (there were reportedly 12 such
members) were obliged to vote with their party
against the clause.
In the midst of procedural objections from
the Liberals and NDP, the government managed
to substitute the original clause for the one passed
by the private bills committee, waiving the two
day notice required by ruling that it only applied
to "important" amendments and that this amendment was "not important".
Western's   student   council   president,   Peter
Larson,   claimed  Robart's   contention  that  representation  of students on the board had   not
been supported by the faculty was untrue. "The

original draft was prepared by the faculty association and it made unmistakably clear their
desire for student representation," he said. Larson also answered those who said that students
who wanted a voice in the Board of Directors
»were in a minority by saying that "to the best
of my knowledge, candidates who suported student participation on the board at the most recent election  on campus were successful."
In   Quebec   City   wholesale   reorganization
^marked the University of Montreal's transfer
from a papal charter to a civil charter. A two-
tiered structure was designed: 1) a board of directors representing the government, the faculty,
>the graduates, and the undergraduates, and 2)
the assembly, a larger body representing all
members of the academic community and dealing
with the orientation of the university, staff status,
discipline, and other internal academic matters.
■~* Six student council appointees would represent the students in the assembly, but again the
administration seemed leery of giving students
unilateral power to name representatives to the
rBoard of Directors. They therefore put the appointment of the two student representatives in
the hands of the existing Board, in consultation
with the student council (AGEUM). This would
prevent "unacceptable" persons from being seated on the board, said university Rector Roger
Gaudry.
Despite a major bid by the students of U of M
to change the clause, the administration has won
the support of the National Union government,
and the bill was passed.
The students had been loudly supported in
their bid by the syndicalist Union Generale des
Etudiants du Quebec (UGEQ), the Liberal opposition, Marcel Pepin of the Confederation of
National Trade Unions (CNTU), and several Quebec journalists.
It appears that university administrators
across the country have conceeded students a
voice in the senates and related bodies of their
institutions. However, they seem to have drawn
the line at the Board of Governors level, and are
using their considerable power to prevent freely
elected student representatives from sitting on
the highest body of their respective schools.
Students who claim they are interested in
society and its academic "community of scholars"
say they will fight this issue with all the vigor
used in the "Freeze the fees" and "Anti-Viet
War" campaigns of the past few years.
The road will probably be as long and hard,
and recognition as always will take time. But
students are a perennial breed, and the cause
will not be given up. They all look forward with
hope to the day when these university reforms
will be part of the mainstream of Canadian attitudes.
And judging by the modern trend, this day
may not be too far off.

their drawing boards in a renewed effort to
perfect a mechanical raspberry picker.
The need to develop a mechanical picker
has arisen from the labor shortage in the lower
-Fraser River valley area.
"Human berry pickers are becoming increasingly scarce and unreliable," said Prof. Lionel
Coulthard, head of UBC's agricultural engineering department. "Many Fraser Valley growers
are forced to leave large areas unpicked because of the labor shortage."
-    The first mechanical picker was built in 1966
with grants totalling $4,500. It is a two-man
machine powered by a hydraulic motor which
moves the 12-foot r .cker and also operates a
shaker arm which is inserted into the cane
patch.
The berries, shaken from the canes by
the vibrating arm, fall onto a moving belt that
passes under the canes, which are trained to
form arches.
At the rear of the machine the berries fall
off the platform into flats. A blast of air from
a fan blows off the refuse as the berries fall off
the moving belt.
Student pres asks
for fee holdout
MONTREAL (CUP) — The student president of the University of Montreal has asked all students to ignore a $30 tuition
raise and to send tuition fees on the old rate to the Association
Generale des Etudiants l'University de Montreal, "in trust".
Jean Dore, AGEUM president, sent a letter to the 17,000
students asking them to make out a cheque to the university
based on the old rates and forward them to the AGEUM. He estimates that in order to make the plan feasible more than 4,000
students must co-operate. He claims to have half of them now.
By withholding these fees the association hopes to get the
university to reconsider the fee increase. The university said
in a letter to all students that fees must be paid prior to
registration.
But Dore points out that if the students offer a common front
to the university they need fear little in terms of reprisals. He
said a government committee last year recommended tuition fees
be reduced this year by $100 as the first step in their eventual
elimination.
This is not the first encounter between the AGEUM and the
university authorities. Last July, Dore tangled with Rector Roger
Gaudry over a bid to place student representatives on the university's board of directors.
As the Private Bills Committee of the Quebec legislature
was considering a new charter for the Uof M, the AGEUM put
in a bid for direct election of representatives to the proposed
board of directors which was to replace the old board of governors.
Gaudry felt that "unacceptable" persons might thereby be
placed on the board.
"Students should concentrate on learning rather than on
the administration of their university," he said.
As the bill now stands the board of directors will appoint
two students to the board after consulting the AGEUM.
The university will then have a two-tiered structure; a board
of directors to replace the board of governors and an assembly
representing government, faculty, graduate students and undergrads.
The second level, the assembly, will be a larger body than the
board of directors. It will concern itself with the general orientation of the university, staff status, discipline and other academic
matters. Six student council appointees will sit on this body.

CUS  supports
citizenship
LONDON (CUP) — The Canadian Union of
Students has unanimously moved to back former UBC student Charlie Boylan in his fight to
gain Canadian citizenship.
Boylan, a 24-year-old American who came to
Canada in 1947, has not been given an official
reason for the continued denial of his Canadian
papers by the department of citizenship and
immigration.
He said the department's refusal to grant him
citizenship has been informally related to his
membership in the Communist Party of Canada.
He is currently editor of Scan magazine in
Toronto and simultaneously working on his MA
degree in Canadian literature.
Last year, Boylan was first vice-president of
UBC's student council.
Representations on his behalf have already
' been made by UBC's academic and student presidents, senator Norman MacKenzie, former agriculture minister Alvin Hamilton, CUS past president Doug Ward and several UBC professors.
trated students are expected to corner Shaun
Sullivan and Commerce undergraduate society
president Peter Uitdenbosch.
The event, organized by the Commerce undergraduate society, is to raise funds for this year's
United Appeal.
A crusty Sullivan reacted warmly to the news
of the pie confrontation.
"Oh Christ," he mumbled, when told of the
event by The Ubyssey.
Commerce second vice-president Jack Khoury
said the drive will start at 10:30 a.m. with a
room-to-room blitz. The most generous faculty is
to toe chosen on a proportional basis.
All interested in participating in the one hour
drive should contact their faculty offices, Khoury
said.

Nominations open tor
students on Senate
Four students will be elected this year to UBC's Senate.
The Senate, the university's highest academic body, decided
to allow students into their sanctum in a meeting last May.
The move came after years of lobbying by students and
proponents of academic reform. UBC is one of the last universities in Canada to admit student representation to its
governing bodies.
The Alma Mater Society has accepted a report submitted
by Peter Braund, student senators committee chairman, recommending the elections be held on or before Oct. 31.
Nominations opened on the first day of registration.
One of the students must be a graduate student under
Senate rules.
Under ground rules established by the Senate, any student
candidate would have to have attained at least second-class
standing in a full program of studies in the winter session preceding his election.
No provincial legislation is required to provide the student
seat.
There are no nominations yet.
In the AMS-supervised elections a separate ballot will be
given to students registered in the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
The ballot will contain only grad student candidates.
Undergrads will elect the other three senators on another
ballot. The undergrad candidate getting the most votes will
hold office for two years. Candidates placing second and third
will be a senator for one year.

GAMES FREE AT UBC THIS YEAR
UBC Thunderbirds football coach, Frank Gnup, pointed
earthward and moaned, "Some of our players are greener
than the color of that grass." This statement was made a
week ago.   _
The Birds took to the football field in Winnipeg on
Sept. 16 against the University of Manitoba and proved
the coach right as they lost 9-0.
What lies ahead for the Birds is a tough schedule which
includes three games against U.S. college teams.
Their game on October 16 against the Simon Fraser
Clansmen is not going to be a snap either. In their weekend
game, the Clansmen performed well in winning 6-0 over
Pacific of Oregon.
Coach Gnup admits that experience and hard work is
what his boys need. They were not in condition to play
top football in their first game.
With the next game not scheduled till Sept. 30, the Birds
have a chance to work themselves into playing shape. They'll
need all the exercise they can get.
On that last day of September they meet Willamette
University of Salem, Oregon, a class football team according
to new line coach, Bill Reeske, a refugee from the head coaching position at Southern Utah.
One week after that game, the Birds will go up against
Southern Oregon College. This team has one of the best
passing quarterbacks of all the small U.S. colleges in the
person of Don Miles.
In 1965, Miles completed 66 per cent of his passes. He
alone would provide formidable opposition for a football
team which was in good physical shape. Unless the Birds
can run with him, they could find themselves on the wrong
end of the score again.
Things will be tough for the Birds. They lost many good
players through graduation last year. There are only 18
returnees on the current edition of football heroes.
Coach Gnup has a big job ahead of him if he plans on
winning some games this year. At quarterback he has Gordon
Hardy, a 20-year-old lad from West Vancouver who has only
played 13 real football games in his life.
He played one season of eight games in high school
and four junior varsity games last year before a sore shoulder
finished him for the year.
Against the Manitoba team, Hardy played well but showed
a definite lack of experience in calling plays. He 'wanted to
quarterback the Junior Varsity Birds when they meet Wenat-
chee this Saturday but coach Gnup cannot take the chance
that Hardy may be injured, even though he could use the
work.
Some of the varsity players, perhaps as many as ten,
will accompany the Jayvees on their trip to Washington.
With one losing football team in Vancouver already, the
fans are looking for a winner. Only work and more work
will make the Thunderbirds a winning unit.
There will be no athletic
cards this year.
A $10,000 grant from the
Board of Governors will
make it possible for all UBC
students to attend Men's Athletic Committee - sponsored
on-campus sporting events
free of charge.
Athletic director Bus Phillips said that this method of
financing will help to stabilize the Men's Athletic Committee budget.
In the past, the committee
was not able to accurately
estimate how many admissions it. would have during
the year and how many athletic cards would be sold.
Hence, it was hard to stick
to a budget.
"Free admissions are a
coming thing in the United
States," added Mr. Phillips.
Since students are already
supporting athletics through
their AMS fees, it seems only
fair that they gain free admission to see their teams
play.
This free admission policy
will only cover sponsored on-
campus events.
This will not include such
events as the UBC-SFU football game at Empire Stadium
or the annual visit of the
Harlem Globetrotters.
So now that its free, why
don't you get out and support your teams?
New coaches for three UBC teams
Bill Reeske
Bill Reeske has replaced Emery Barnes as
line coach for the UBC football Thunderbirds.
Reeske was most recenty the head football
coach for  Southern Utah College  where  he   spent  the  last
two years.
A football and wrestling
star in high school, Reeske also
participated in tennis in junior
college but stuck to football
and wrestling in College.
He received his Bachelor of
Arts in 1956 at California State
College in Los Angeles. He received his Master of Arts in 1965.
From 1956 to 1959, Reeske taught physical
education and history at Mount Carmel High
School. He also coached football, basketball
and baseball.
His four year record as football coach there
was 44 wins and four losses. His team did not
lose one league game.
In 1961 Reeske became assistant football
coach at Pomona College and his four year
record there was 24 wins and 12 losses.
In 1965 he moved into the head coaching
position at Southern Utah and his record that
year was four1 wins and five losses and in 1966
his team won six and lost three.
In 12 years of football coaching, he has suffered only two losing seasons and has been
associated with 10 winners.
Nestor Korchinsky is the new coach of the
Junior Varsity football team.
Korchinsky may be better known to  UBC
sport fans as the outstanding centre with the
University of Edmonton basketball team.
This is his first experience in coaching football although he has spent two years as a defensive end with the University of Edmonton
Golden Bears.
Korchinsky received his Bachelor of Physical
Education at Edmonton in 1965 and his Mastei^
of Arts in Physical Education in 1967.
He also spent one year on the university
swim team and was twice chosen as a second
all-star on the WCIAA basketball team.
• • •
An athlete who was outstanding during his
student days is the new coach of the UBC rugby
Thunderbirds.
Donn Spence replaces Brian Wightman wlrf'
has   accepted   a   position   with   the   Cowiehan
School Board.
Spence will be head coach
of the six UBC entries that are
fielded in local leagues.
He began playing rugby at
Kitsilano High School and later
played with the city and provincial championship Vindex
team before representing Vancouver in many McKechnie Cup
series.
During his varsity career he
was a star in football, baseball, track, swimming,
gymnastics, and rugby.
After graduation he played with the Mera-
loma and Kats Rubgy Clubs before injuries ended his playing career in 1964.
He has been a teacher at West Vancouver
Secondary School since graduation.

Birds drop first one
The UBC football Thunderbirds could have won their
^first game of the season if only one passing play had turned
out differently, but instead they lost 9-0 to the University of
Manitoba Bisons in a WCIAA conference game on Sept. 16.
With   Manitoba  leading   2-0
PAUL DANYLIU, a half-back
for the UBC football Thunderbirds, takes a swipe at
the imaginary opposition in
this posed picture. The 5' 9",
180 lb. runner could be a
key figure in the success of
the Birds this year.
on two first quarter singles,
Birds' quarterback, Gordon
~, Hardy, had his third quarter
toss to Ron Ritchie intercepted and run back for a 70-yard
touchdown.
Ritchie   had   all   defenders
„ beat and would have gone for
Hhe major if he had caught the
ball,    said    line    coach    Bill
Reeske.
The   Birds  defensive   squad
blocked   the   convert   attempt
as well as two attempted field
*_ goals in an effort to keep the
Birds in the game.
The Bird offense was only
on the field for about a third
of the game, said coach Frank
Gnup and never got closer
■, than the Manitoba 45-yard
line.
"We need to work on our
offense and we need more
players," commented Gnup
■'•*-. about the game. "We should
be in shape in about two
weeks."
UBC had a total offense of
«" 190 yards compared with Manitoba's 290 yards.
"They had the ball for abrut
"IJ20  more plays than we did,""
said Gnup.
Manitoba got 11 first downs
and UBC had eight.
The Birds lacked speed and
were particularly bad on punt
t   returns.
But the Bird offense is what
is causing concern for Gnup.
Hardy quarterbacked the
whole game, doing a good job
but displaying a lack of experience. He completed nine of
22 passes.
Hardy needs more experience in calling the right sequence of plays.
Gnup does not want a running team so he is hoping that
Hardy's passes will begin to
drop into the waiting arms of
his receivers.
Penalties also played a big
part in the game. UBC was
assessed 95 yards and one of
the penalties took away a 40-
yard gain. The Bisons took 45
yards in penalties.
The Manitoba punter kicked
like he had concrete in his
shoes, said line coach Reeske.
He kept the Birds hemmed in
tight in their half of the field
as well as kicking three
singles.
The win was the second of
the young season for the
Bisons. They had previously
beaten the University of Saskatchewan 14-7.
They will be one of the
teams pushing for the WCIAA
title, according to Gnup. Another strong team in the conference will be Calgary who
handed Saskatchewan their
second loss, 10-0, on Sept. 16.
Fields disappearing
The playing fields north of
Memorial Gym are slowly disappearing.
An access road to the new
Student Union Building is to
be constructed across Me-
Innes soccer field and the athletic department has been advised that the field will not
be available for use this year.
The east side of SUB is already encroaching onto the
playing fields.
Also in the making are
plans to build a parking complex and a student residence
on the ground now occupied
by the two women's grass
hockey fields.
These will not be lost to
athletics before next year.
When they are, however, there
will only be one playing field
in this area where there previously were five.
The situation is not too serious for this year but next
year athletics would really
feel a cramp in its operations.
The athletic department is
currently discussing with the
administration the aquisition
of land on the south side of
Acadia Park.
New fields around the Winter Sports Centre will be
shared by some sports till
other fields in the area are
safe to play on.
Sports Shorts
New  stadium  opens  Oct.   7
The new Thunderbird Stadium on the south campus will have
its official opening on October 7.
The program will include a rugby game featuring the B.C.
All Stars and UBC Past and Present.
The stadium will have 3,000 covered seats. Bleachers have
not yet been installed since the most modern type is wanted.
The oval track around the field has not yet been completed.
Cinders have not been placed on the track surface but it is hoped
that it will be ready in the spring.
Soccer  team   in  again
The UBC soccer Thunderbirds have been reinstated into the
Pacific Coast Soccer League along with two other teams after
a short expulsion.
The Birds, along with the North Shore Luckies and Vancouver Firefighters, were expelled early in August by the league
executive.
The reason for the expulsion was for alleged criticism of the
executive made by the three teams.
The teams appealed to the B.C. Soccer Commission and were
reinstated immediately, putting a stop to the nonsense started byi
the executive.
Players,   managers  needed
There are openings for athletic team managers and football
players now.
Managers are needed for football and rugby and more will
be required later. Applicants should sign up at the athletic office
in Memorial Gym.
Both the varsity and junior varsity football Thunderbirds
need players. If you want to play see head-coach Frank Gnup,
whose office is also in the Memorial Gym.
Lack  of  experience  costs
The Junior Varsity football Thunderbirds lost their thunder
after the first quarter on Sept. 16 and went down to a 61-0 defeat
to Shoreline College in Seattle.
Coached by newcomer, Nestor Korchinsky, the Jayvees
lacked practice in every department. This can be blamed on a
schedule of early season games for which the players haven't
had time to prepare.
The coach is still looking for more able-bodied men who
think they can play football.

Revolution
the best way
says Watson
OTTAWA (CUP) — Patrick
Watson last week told Carleton
University freshmen to revolt
against the administration and
faculty.
Watson told 500 frosh students to work through their
student government to gain a
bigger say in the administration of their university.
"You can convert the next
four years of drudgery into a
social and intellectual adventure if you act now," he said.
He said the university is a
learning situation and not a
training school.
He attacked professors who
lazily believe that to impart
knowledge all they need to do
is to stand up in front of a room
full of students and give them
the same set of lectures they gave
at the same time last  year.
The time is gone when student government's major role
is to organize dances and football rallys. "Now they are working for political reform within
the university", he said.
Theater
in SUB?
A "little bureaucracy" is all
that's needed to establish a public film theatre in the Student
Union Building, AMS treasurer
Dave Hoye said Monday night.
Arts president Stan Persky
asked at Monday's council meeting if plans were being considered for a Varsity Theatre type
operation in the SUB 425-seat
auditorium.
Hoye replied that Filmsoc is
entirely capable of running such
an operation.
"All that's need is a bit of
bureaucracy to get things going," he said. "A theatre also
would be a good money raiser."
