OTTAWA (CUP)—The RCMP's senior officer has
admitted the police force is carrying on intensive
investigations of Canadian university students.
Commissioner C. W. Harvison told this reporter
that -the RCMP is interested in all types of personal
behaviour of students.
He said political activities of students were being
itrvesrtigatect and-reports sent to Ottawa for analysis.
Commissioner  Harvison  said  most  of  these  investigations were done on students who had applied
for government jobs. ; -
But he emphasized it is the job of the RCMP to
know where subversion is and attack espionage wherever it can be found.
"If we think it is found on the university campuses, we have to go there."
My interview with Commissioner Harvison followed allegations by The Ubyssey and other Canadian
university papers of RCMP undercover investigations
on their campuses.
Ubyssey reporter Richard Simeon learned of rumors that:
RCMP officers with cameras attended left-wing
meetings on campus and took xpietures of the participants;
a student was investigated when he applied to
attend the Communist-backed World Youth Conference in Helsinki;
professors were approached by uniformed RCMP
officers and asked for information on their students.
Commissioner Harvisonbelieves these investigations are necessary for the security of the country.

; OTTAWA (CUP)—-The Canadian Communist Party is dedicated to subversion and the
overthrow of democratic government.
The Canadian Party slavishly follows communist theory
and practices laid down in Moscow.
Prominent Canadian communists have regular meetings
with counterparts in Russia
and attend communist conferences which lay down international policy.
This  is  what the  senior officer of the RCMP told me when
I interviewed him in Ottawa recently.
This is why, he said, the
RCMP must investigate people,
including students, who are
suspected of communist or subversive activity.
"It should be clearly understood that we are not dealing
with an ordinary political
party," Commissioner C. W.
Harvison said.
"It is with part of the Inter-

Housing director John Haar said Thursday fees will jump

Prices in Fort and Acadia
camps will jump $35 for a double room and $29 for a single
Haar said the housing administration decided to raise the
prices in the face of increased
costs for food, salaries and maintenance and to help pay for new
residences to be built this summer.
"We have been operating on
a shoestring—and it just had to
break sometime," Haar said.
"The problems of finance haVe
compounded themselves so we
must increase the rates."
About 2,000 students live in
residence on the campus.
Many said after the announcement that they may not be able
to return to University because
of the increase.
Haar said four new six-storey
blocks will be built along Marine Drive starting this summer
and will be completed for use in
the fall of 1964.
"With the present difficulty
in financing the academic services of the University, there is
little chance we will be able to
get funds from the University
to develop residences," Haar
"So it will have to come out
of money paid by the students."
Haar said that in addition to
financing new buildings, the
housing administration is still
paying Off existing buildings.
Donna Morris, president-elect
of Fort Camp, said many students will not be able to afford
the new rates.
"They can't afford to pay $80-
90 a month to live on campus,"
she said.
"We feel this will be limiting
campus residence to the richer

the permanent residences, criticized the housing administration for making students, pay for

Well it WAS a little overdue
The book was due February
29th,  1934.
It was returned to the library Thursday — a mere 29
years and one month overdue.
That adds up to $2,639.05 in
fines on a book worth 10 cents.
Joan Weld, Arts II, found the
little book entitled, "'Guide to
the Geological Model of the
Assynt Mountains," in her
home a few weeks ago.
For the previous 27 .years
the book sat in her grandfather's basement gathering dust
—and the fine, of course.
Miss   Weld   says   the   book
probably belonged to an uncle,;.
Robin Manson, who has been
dead for more than 20 years.
She was a little worried
about   having   to   return   the
book to the library—she didn't
have  $2,639.05,  naturally.
But the library doesn't care.
They're just glad to have it
back again. There's only one
- other copy at UBC.
They won't even charge her
the usual five dollars they
charge for really long overdue
The little book was published
in 1914 and cost sixpence, or
roughly 10 cents.
If you really care, the book
deals with the development of
the Assynt Tnountains. As any-
fool knows, the Assynt mountains are in Scotland.
If you're really keen you can
take Miss Weld's book out soon.
The library says it will send it
to the bindery and then shelve
it with the rest of the books. Page 2

"The Communists themselves
point to what they hope to
achieve on the university campus," he said.
"Ln one of their publications
one reads that the university is
the training ground for 'bourgeois leadership' and 'offers a
unique opportunity for valuable
party work, here is the centre
and source of the bourgeois apology for capitalism.'
"Even the high schools are
targets for Communist activities, as is seen from their (Communist) own literature."
He said university students
are naturally curious about any
activity such as communism.
"At this age one finds a great
deal of idealism. There are certain abuses in our system which
the student may think communism will cure—if he gets only
one side of the picture."
According to the police officer,
the university-trained man is
much more useful to the Communists than the non-university
Information the Communists
want can come only from those
who have training and access to
the information, he said.
"It is obvious that those with
access have attained the position

"This has been a feature of

"No one needs be disillusioned as to the purpose of the
Canadian party," Harvison
said. "It takes direction right
from Lenin.
"It's aim is clearly the destruction of our present political system for the purpose of
setting up a one-party totalitarian government by whatever means possible.
"Because they know there is
little hope of becoming the
government through normal
parliamentary means, Canadian
communists have found it necessary to infiltrate organizations

On endowment lands
$300 million plan
unveiled for UBC
Plans for a plush residential development on the University Endowment Lands have been revealed.
Webb   and   Knapp
Ltd. took the shrouds off a $300
million proposal Thursday.
The giant scheme envisions:
• A research estate for large
companies wishing to establish
research centers near the University.
• 10 self-contained neighborhoods laid out in sweeping crescents.
• A town center with cultural, civic ana commercial facilities.
Webb and Knapp officials said
the development will provide $3
million in annual revenue to the
University when it is completed
in 15 years.
The company said it can begin
work on the project six-eight
months after getting the go-
ahead from the government.
The company submitted plans
for the development to the provincial government last year,
but details were not made public.
Lands and Forest minister Ray
Williston said earlier that his
department was considering pro
posals to develop UEL on a profitable basis.
But he did not disclose details.
In the legislature Wednesday,
however, he discussed the Webb
and Knapp scheme and invited
members of the opposition and
other interested parties to view
the scale model in the Webb and
Knapp olfices in downtown Vancouver,
"This proposal is the only one
in the hands of this department,"
Williston said.
"The provincial government
would maintain control of the
land. All buildings would be
used on a lease basis," said L. J.
Westwood, who will be project
manager if Victoria gives its

Westwood said their plan was
significant in that it provides an

which would benefit both their
staff and research.
University of Calgary fees
hiked 20 per cent next year
CALGARY (CUP)—Students at the University of Alberta
at Calgary will pay 20 per cent higher tuition fees next year.
Dr. Walter Johns, president of the University of Alberta,
said the increase was forced by increasing costs, and will be
used to help meet strong nation-wide competition for qualified
"We simply have to meet the salaries paid by other universities."
The new fee schedule raises the basic fee for arts, education and physical education from $250 to $300.

foreign student exchanges
VICTORIA (CUP)—Students at Victoria College will be
asked to approve a foreign student program which will bring
10 students to Victoria within five years.
Under the proposed plan students will have to finance
their own transportation to Victoria. Once there, they will be
billeted in a student home at nog. cost to themselves. Fees will
be paid and the student will receive a $500 per year scholarship. ..■•■•
If the plan is approved by the students,, each succeeding
student council will negotiate with a foreign university to find
a student willing to undertake the program.

A UBC chemical engineering professor wants money to
defy nature.
Dr. P. L. Siiveston believes he can reduce evaporation in
dry areas by at least 30 per cent using a harmless white
'substance derived from animal fats.
If   his   experiments   are   suc-; ~      ~~"
cessful there will be a saving of
millions  of dollars spent on irrigation projects.
Charts compiled by Dr. Sil-
veston's • students: show that
every year billions of gallons tof
Water are lost through evaporation — especially in the
hot dry areas such as the B.C.
interior and the prairies.
At Ashcroft, for example,
230,000 gallons are lost from
every acre during July.
The professor needs the
money—from $2 to $12 an acre,
he estimates—to carry out his
field trials.
Cetyl alcohol—the substance
Dr. Siiveston plans to use in his
experiments—is ideal for preventing evaporation, he said.
Each molecule looks like an
ordinary thermometer, with a
bulbous head that is attracted
to water and a head that is not.
When cetyl alcohol is spread
on water, the molecules align
themselves at right anges to the
surface, forming a close-knit
layer less than a millionth of
an inch thick.
This film has to be renewed
every day, Dr. Siiveston said,
because it is dissipated by wind
or absorbed by dust falling on
the surface.
Dr. Siiveston has already prepared working drawings for a
device to spray the powder on
water at regular intervals.
"Our project is to find the
cheapest and best methods of
spreading the powder on lakes
of varying sizes," says Dr. Siiveston.

April the fourth our, and I
emphasize the term our, Rugby
team plays the touring Japanese squad. The game will be
played at noon in Thunder-
" bird stadium so students, who
pay for the team, can go to
the game.
There is only one small problem. Prices!
Prices for the game are $2.50
for reserved seats and $1.00
As usual, Athletic cards are
not   good.
Despite the fact UBC's
athletic department held all
the high cards and the B.C.
Rugby Union, which arranges
games for the touring Japanese, held a handful of junk, our
boys, and I do mean boys,
managed to get bluffed out of
their proverbial pants.
We held all the aces. These
included such important facts
1) The Thunderbirds are tne
only team that could have
played the touring squad on a
Thursday and whether or not
the visitors played they would
have to be in town and would
incur  expenses.
2) There is not another stadium that could be rented so
cheaply and with so ready an
3) At reasonable prices the
University is the biggest,
ready-made market for their

Despite this  strong position
the   Athletic   department   has
accepted the argument that the
"Birds   are   lucky   to   get   the
>;  chance   to   play   the   Japanese
; With this rather unbelieve-
able argument, the B.C. Rugby
Union has managed to push
the admission price far above
, what the average student can
afford to pay.
Not content with this, they
,: jhave nullified ''A" cards as is
J usually the case when the
i Birds play a big game. Not
■ only the Rugby Birds but any
other Bird team that plays in
'- a really big game.
What is the use of buying
this "great value" when if isn't
good for any of the climactic
events such as the McKeeknie
cup or tfyis exhibition?
' Boys of Uie athletic department, it is time you did a little
(Jemanding. You represent a
big organization and must play
yvith the big boys under their
rules. How about striking out
for the students whose wants,
you say, are the guiding force
behind  all  actions.
T-  We want a fair deal.
A large number of admissions at a low price are better
than few or no admissions at
a high price which is just what
is going to happen.
I hope you lose your shirts.
Maybe  then  you'll  learn  that
you have to give the students

Soccer coach Johnston charges;
UBC athletic policy discriminatory
UBC Thunderbirds coach Joe Johnson
thinks soccer is getting poor treatment
at UBC.
"The University policy of major and
minor sports is a sheer, stupid waste of
money," says Johnson. "It's discriminatory and demoralizing to athletes who
don't happen to play football, basketball,
or hockey."
Birds are nearing completion of their
most successful season in memory. Johnson's team has swept the Mainland League
first division title, won the Imperial Cup,
and has twice defeated powerful Columbus Italians, third-place team in the Pacific Coast League.
"It's the needless things that hurt,"
Johnson complains. "Case in point: The
soccer team had a trip to San Francisco
arranged. At the last minute we were
informed that due to a shortage of funds
we'd have to drive to Seattle in our own
cars, and catch a plane to Frisco from
there. We did, at considerable expense to
our players.
"The same weekend the football team
was flown to Saskatchewan for a game
against a third-rate group that didn't belong on the same field. One of UBC's
players was injured before the game and
a replacement was flown out from Vancouver . . . There were funds enough for
that. UBC then won by a fantastic score.
They could have taken anyone off the
bench and still won.
"I know this'll sound like sour grapes,"
Johnson says, "but these things need to
be said."
Meanwhile, Birds have not applied
admission to the PCL as was reported in
the Vancouver daily papers.
In fact, the men's athletic commission, according to athletic director Bus
Phillips, has not yet discussed the matter.
Phillips says he has written PCL president Bill Findler requesting information
about the league—length of season, admission fees, etc.—but has received no
answer. "When we get an answer," says
Phillips, "we'll discuss it."
Coach Johnson thinks the University
authorities could be doing more to support his team's hopes of advancement.
"I wish the athletic commission would
come out with a definite policy on our
aspirations to the PCL," he says. "We've
obviously got the team and the facilities
for the senior league but they're not going
to accept us if the University takes a halfhearted stand.
"Will the University allow the use of
the stadium? Will they agree to an extended season? These are things we have
to know.
"If the commission isn't going to urge
the Birds to advance, then they'd better
drop this silly rule about requiring special permission to play outside UBC.
Every one of our first-string could play
in the PCL — if the University doesn't
press for admission I'll encourage these
boys to play off campus."
Birds po after their second straight victory in the Province Cup series Saturday
when they meet North Shore. United at
Callister Park.

poll shows
TORONTO (CUP)—Any general disarmament treaty would
have to contain an inspection
sys4«m at any; cost,* say three
oii.'of four Canadians interviewed, by the Canadian Peace* Research Institute. • ..,.•.-
, Half of those polled- would insist on a UN army strong enough
to prevent aggression, while six
out of 10 would insist on an International Court to deal with
all international disputes.
The CAPRI poll on disarmament was part of 100 questions
put to 1,000 Canadians by (he
institute in its effort to get a
comprehensive picture of national opinions on problems underlying international tensions.
Results of the questions showed less than half: of those polled
would demand that Russia withdraw all forces from satellite
states as a condition for disarmament. Two out of five would
insist that each country retain a
small conventional army, big
enough to keep internal order.
TFifty-eight per cent of those
polled said they believe "increased military strength" is the best
way to prevent war. Only two
out of five, however, would approve "all steps to defeat communism, even if it means risking
'nuclear war"; nearly half those
^polled wished a more moderate
Eight out of 10 polled felt
Russian communism was a danger to the West, but only about
one in four (27 per cent) would
not want a disarmament agreement to be signed while Russia
remains Communist. There were
few—less than one in 10—who
would favor Western disarmament unless the Russians did
Forty-six per cent of those
polled blamed both the U.S. and
Russia for the failure of disarmament talks; 43 per cent thought
the Russians alone were to
