Chaos reigned at the Alma
Mater Society's spring general meeting.
Smoke bombs ended the
meeting, and dozens of students were tanked by engineers.
At the start of the meeting, more than 300 engineers
entered with their portable
One student, dressed in tails
and top hat, was introduced as
W.A.C. Benedict.
He spoke about UBC, and
said that the university suffered from "outright hypoplasia."
"Your present government
is doing all in its power to
encourage augmentism on the
unilateral level," he said.
Benedict said his intention
was  to  give  a  definite, stal-
w a r t, unequivocating, unflinching "maybe."
"I would like to confine to
you, my fellow citizens of
British Columbia, that I shall
endeavor as leader of your
government to give meaning to
the office, to give prestige to
the position, and to give Canada back to the Indians," he

then ruled that a quorum was
Several students objected
that only three-quarters of the
chairs were filled and this did
not constitute a quorum.
"The chair still rules there
is a quorum present," yelled
"On what basis does the
chair rule the quorum present?" asked one student.
"Poor eyesight," replied
The engineers' glee club
then started on a chorus of
"She Loves You, Yeah, Yeah."
Song sheets had been distributed to members of the audience, but few sang along.
Three foresters suddenly
set fire to garbage cans filled
with chemicals.
Smoke poured into the Armory, driving students towards the stage.
A "77" smoke grenade was
tossed outside the entrance.
(The army grenade is illegal
and highly toxic.)
When the cans of smoke
could not be removed, Scott
groped for the microphone and
mumbled, "Let's all go home."
But student councillors
were grabbed by engineers
and propelled into the engineers' tank.

new grants
Student undergraduate societies will be $1,600 poorer
next year because of the foresters' smoke bomb at Thursday's general meeting.
MALCOLM SCOTT ... he was fuming

One of the proposed amendments to the AMS constitution
for the general meeting would
have taken 10 cents a student
off the accident fund and given
it to the undergraduate societies.
This would have meant
$1,600 more for the societies.
But the smoke bomb put an
end to the meeting.
The next general meeting
will not be until next fall so
the accident fund will remain
at 10 cents per student until
"Everybody is going to be
carrying the debt next year,"
said AMS president - elect,
Roger McAfee, after the meeting.
"You have to consider that
by doing this (planting the
smoke bomb) the undergraduate societies have cut themselves out of $1,600."
"It could mean another tight
clubs' budget," he said.
AMS president Malcolm
Scott refused to comment on
the situation.
From female visitations
Pyjama-clad men defend dorms
It's the men who object to
an open dorm policy at UBC,
housing director John Haar
told The Ubyssey Thursday.
Haar was asked for UBC's
stand on allowing women in
men's dorms in response to
New York correspondent Mike
Grenby's account of such regulations in American universities.
•    •    •
"Many men don't want wo-
ment in their dorms," Haar
said. "They look on their
dorms as the last bastion of
male superiority."
"Some men don't want to
throw away their freedom to
wander around in their pyjamas," Haar said.
At present, he explained,
men's dorms in Acadia Camp
have not asked for an open
house, Fort Camp has had
only one (with protests from
some men), and Lower Mall
has had one a month.
•    •    *
He said if it was permitted
every week, students would
balk at the privilege.
"And parents want to make
sure their children are protected,"  Haar said.
"They would take their
children out of residence if
the regulation were relaxed."
Leslie Rohringer, housing
administrator, defended UBC's

"We don't feel they are so

Three sets of presentations
were made Thursday before
the AMS general meeting dissolved 40 minutes after it
Honorary Activity scrolls
were presented to AMS' best,
pewter mugs were presented to
the Olympic hockey team, and
smoke bombs were presented
to the student body.
After the presentation of the
Honorary Activity awards and
the awards to the Olympic
hockey team, a smoke bomb
planted by forestry students
brought the meeting to a halt.

the abolition of the AMS.

Surveys,   surveys   everywhere
Roger will survey the situation
If AMS president-elect Roger McAfee has his way, student council will be a busy
group next year.
Outlining his 1964-65 program, McAfee told The Ubyssey: "I don't expect to try to
force student council to do
anything they don't want to
do, but it would be disappointing if the plans we
have fall through.
• •    •
"We'll have a sweet little
oligarchy next year."
He made his statement using the royal "we."
McAfee's plans:
• Canadian Union of Students: "The most important
function of CUS is to lobby
the federal government, and
act on the students' behalf in
that area. We (Royal We) will
attempt, by presenting a well-
researched brief to the fall
congress in Toronto, to lead
CUS   into   this   situation."
• •    •
• Student    means    survey:
"When the results are tabulated we will make recommendations as to the best way
. . . grandiose plans
of satisfying the need we are
sure exists. 'We must lobby
for support with both the federal and provincial government."
• Athletics: "We will carry
out an extensive survey to
make   sure   the   $75,000   the
AMS gives to athletics each
year is  well  spent,   and  also
that the administration pays
its full share to promote an
active athletic program at the
"We will also try to get
money for athletics from
other sources outside the university.
• •    •
"An attempt will be made
to investigate the possibility
of a greatly expanded intramural program. This year
$2,500 was set aside for this
purpose, but we hope to have
at least $5,000 next year."
• Student union building:
"Hopefully, site preparation
will begin in September, and
construction will be started
early in the new year. By
September, we hope to have a
traffic loop there, and pos-
s i b 1 y additional parking
• •    •
"A determined effort will
be made to raise student
union building money from
outside sources, from the government, winter works projects, and through reduced interest rates. We will cut down
on the student funds used in
the building as much as possible."
• Undergraduate societies'
activities: "We will ask coun?
cil to encourage these activities as far as is possible. It is
our feeling that the amount of
funds available is insufficient and should be increased.
"It is our hope that no attempt will be made to curtail
faculty editions, or to bring
faculty publications under the
control of the AMS publications' department.

"We will ask undergraduate societies to sponsor certain
social functions during the
year. The profits from this
would go to the societies concerned."

FRIDAY,  MARCH   20,   1964
Barnums boys
You've heard the Beatles. You've seen the New
York Mets. You've eaten Brock food. You've read about
Liz and Dick.
Now add to your list the Alma Mater Society's spring
general meeting, right in there with the other most
ridiculous, pointless, frivolous, farcical things that you've
come across recently.
And if you've been to any previous AMS general
meetings, you must admit that this one has to go down
to the very, very bottom of that ignominious heap.
AMS general meetings are usually masterpieces of
chaos. They are democratic farces that end up drowned
in several feet of water and smeared with bloody noses.
They are chair-challenged, unquorumed procedural
They are held every year not because the student
body is considered wise enough to decide important
issues, or concerned enough to inspect its executives and
scrutinize their reports and activities. It is held only
because the Societies' Act requires that it be held. -
It would be quite easy to say that the meeting didn't
get anywhere because there were no issues to be discussed, because no serious or important motions were
put forth.
It's just that the sort of thing that happened Thursday in the Armory happens every general meeting. One
time in a year when all students are invited to take part
in their student government activities, and they turn it
into a three-ring circus that isn't even good entertainment.
Let those students who cry about student council
railroading the student union building hang their heads
in shame; let those who scream bureaucracy and red
tape forever hold their beef.
These students showed Thursday that given even
the most simple, uncomplicated piece of business to
administer, they are unimaginative, irresponsible, and
Heaven help any organization that has to grovel
before vox populi at any time, let alone every mad, mad
Goody for us
Well, fans, our egos have been assuaged for another
year, or partly at least.
Feeling ignored, we printed a questionnaire in a
couple of recent editions, asking our readers what they
thought of us. One or two didn't like The Ubyssey, but
most said we were great — and a few enthralled souls
even declared we were sensational!
We did learn a few things about our readers' habits,.
however, and some of their pet peeves.
Sufficient readers said they had difficulty obtaining
copies to warrant a boost in daily circulation next year,
to 12,000 or so (making us the sixth largest newspaper in
B.C. by weekly circulation).
Content preferences expressed in the poll will be
taken into account in planning next year's paper, next
year's editor willing. We would remind those who beefed
strenuously that The Ubyssey is a volunteer student
effort, and that our door is as wide open as your mouth.
Please stick your foot in it next September.
Meanwhile, ignore that smudged ink in the middle
of page 12 today. We've been patting ourselves on the
back again.

Sure, chief. I cut the extension grant to UBC in half. After all, if we allow the people
to get too  educated, they  might find  out   that there  are  other parties.
New  York City's  a great place,
but wouldn't want to  live  there
Half a year of breathing in
the dirt, lights, muggings and
people of New York is a
great education.
I've learned that if a cabbie
doesn't feel like picking up a
fare, he won't stop. Or if he
does stop and the fare wants
to go somewhere the cabbie
doesn't, the cab door slams
and the fare is still standing
in the  pouring  rain.
I've seen Paul Anka sit
down at the keyboard of a
plywood piano in the middle
of Times Square at 1 a.m. just
for a publicity shot, and except for traffic having to
swerve around him, nobody
thought anything was out of
the ordinary.
I've been amazed that so
many New Yorkers have so
many dogs, and still haven't
figured out how two Great
Danes, a family of three and a
four-room apartment can get
along year after year.
I know that cleanliness in
this city of soot means two
showers a day.
I am grateful New York is
spared Vancouver's brand of
rain, but weather variations
here make choosing daily
clothes and nightly blankets
as risky as parking in a UBC
visitors' lot.

I've concluded that choosing a Saturday night from 26
Broadway shows, more than
70 movies and countless concerts, name-performances and
other special attractions can
be great.

do, it can be frustrating. In

I've seen that the three-way
split of New York into Catholics, Jews and Protestants

I've learned that rush hour
brings out the brute in people
and turns the subway into a
crushing, sweaty hell.
During quiet periods, when
the subway aisles are clear,
I've watched blind Negroes

down the moving car, begging
for money.
I've noticed that while all
the Negroes aren't bums,
almost all the bums I've seen
are Negroes.
I've been amazed to hear
Americans pronounce Negro
"Nigro-" and even "Nigra".
What surprised me the most
was that Negroes themselves
use this pronunciation, so
close to  "nigger".
I've been shocked by the
teeming filth of life in Harlem and other slums.
It is common for a woman

to do a slum expose.

Boycott UBC
Editor, The  Ubyssey:
After five years, I am graduating from the University of
British Columbia, God and
Administration willing. In
those five years I have been
made to feel barren of rights.
For a 6'9" by 7' 9" room, I
have been forced to pay $72
a month room and board. I
have paid for a meal ticket
and have found it restricted
to my use only, regardless of
the fact that all the meals
thereon   were   "prepaid".
I have repeatedly been denied the right of representation in matters, such as fee
raises, which greatly affect
my economic existence.
The only benefit I could
possibly get from the University after my graduation
would be through the Extension Department.
Thus I would like to suggest that the graduating class,
being, for the most part, made
up of students who will not
be allowed (accepted is merely a kind word) into the Faculty of Graduate Studies,
withdraw its support from the
University  and  advise  future
classes to do the same, unless
the Extension Department is
expanded and i n c 1 u d es
courses  of  high   calibre.

Editor.  The  Ubyssey:
I will have to stop eating
soon, if I am faced with much
more of Jim Ward's Pilikwe
Everyone can admire him
for trying to do a job for a
good cause, but few can admire the method he is trying
to use. Mr. Pulley's letter
stated many students' feelings
Jim, why don't you 1) start
eating again 2) make an honest and sincere appeal to the
students? Then, and only
then, will I give, and I'm sure
many others will, too.
If this approach is beyond
you, then for God's sake have
your supporters pass cans in
every classroom for a couple
of days. There are few students who have the guts to
pass the can without putting
something in.

Hunt's column, labelled "in

The controversy was reopened by WSU president C.

to promote
UBC's 1964 leadership conference will try to promote
better understanding between
AMS council and students.
The two newly appointed co-
chairmen of the conference
told The Ubyssey Thursday
details of the October conference would be worked out before  the  end  of  the  summer.
"This will give us a chance
to concentrate on publicizing
the conference," chorused Liz
Travers, Rehab Medicine 1,

The girls said applications
for the conference committee
would be accepted until Thursday, March 26, in Box 78 at
the AMS office.
With hefty push
Somewhere in the country
every student had a place
OTTAWA (CUP)—In spite of
a steadily increasing demand
for university places, the universities and colleges of Canada were able, collectively, to
provide places in 1963 for all
those applicants for entry who
met the minimum requirements, the Canadian Universities Foundation says.
The information is contained
in Admission to University,
1963, which is the foundation's
latest report on the operation
of university admission across
the country.
Here are the highlights of
the report:
New CUS head says he'll
talk a lot about CUS
Keeping student councillors informed on Canadian
Union of Students affairs is a prime goal of the new CUS
committee head.
Gordon Gaibraith, Arts IV, was appointed to the
position by  council   Monday  night.
"Many councillors are uninformed on CUS issues,"
Gaibraith said Thursday. "But I intend to supply as much
background information as I can."
Gaibraith emphasized that council is the important
body in formulating UBC's  CUS policy.
He said his committee will assist council in making
decisions on CUS matters.
The committee's other duties include providing student
travel information, liaison with other universities' CUS
committees, and general CUS information, Gaibraith added.
• Admission requirements
remained unchanged in most
institutions in 1963. Only two
universities required a higher
average for admission, and
one institution, McMaster University, is experimenting with
lower than average admission
• Provisional admission,
whereby an institution provides provisional admission to
a student by accepting his midyear results, principals' reports, and perhaps the results
of other certain intelligence
tests, is becoming more and
more popular with half of the
51  institutions surveyed.
• Duplicate applications appear to be a minor problem
only. Of those students whose
applications for admission
were approved in 1963, it is
estimated that only 10 per cent
failed to register. It is reasonable to assume that some of
these made multiple applications and registered at other
• In spite of a steadily increasing demand for university places, the universities
and colleges were able, collectively, to provide places for
all those applicants for entry
who met the minimum requirements.
About a third of the institutions covered by the survey
have an overall ceiling on en
rolment, either as a matter of
policy or as a result of limitations in accommodation or
teaching facilities.
Most of these are small, residential institutions, not all of
which are filled to capacity.
Another third have no overall ceiling, but find it necessary to set limits in certain
faculties, especially in the
medico-scientific   fields.
The final third reported no
ceiling, general or particular.
Many of the institutions in this
category are either relatively
new or else older ones planning or in the process of implementing expansion programs.

He said ideas similar to

WHY did they do it?
Why is an engineer more generous toward his university than a commerceman?
Why are lawyers the most reluctant of all professions to
Why are nurses high on the list and social workers low?
The whys and wherefores of these professional differences would be good fodder for a sociological study in itself,
but they are the imponderables in the 1963 story of Alumni
Annual Giving.
It's a story of a heartening awareness by UBC grads of
their obligations to their university. Total giving jumped
to 89,370, more than double the 1962 figure. But it still
left plenty of mysteries.
The red-blooded faculty of Engineering, for example,
leaped to the challenge and topped all faculties with 26.5%
of their grads contributing. (Their 1962 total was only 9%).
A special appeal was made to the Engineers, admittedly.
But how does one account for the fact that a similar appeal
was made to the lawyers—with the results practically nil?
Only 6.2% of the lawyers contributed, which left them
trailing all faculties, even the social workers who had edged
Law out for bottom spot in 1962.
Only other faculties with less than 10% were Pharmacy
and Education.
What made the Engineering burst so appealing was that
it came from the second largest faculty on campus. Next
best was the tiny (62 grads) Library group, with 19%. Nursing, Forestry, Music and Medicine ranged down to 15% with
Arts checking in at 14%.
On a geographic basis, the "Absence Makes the Heart
Grow Fonder" theme remained unchallenged. B.C., which
in 1962 had a participation of 10% jumped to 17%. But
Maritimes and Newfoundland maintained their Canadian
lead by increasing from 15 to 24%, or almost one-quarter
of all their grads.
The 1,800 grads in Ontario were at 21% and the 104 in
Oregon had a lordly 25% who remembered the ould sod.
The 441 UBC products in the New England states were up
to 19% and the rest of the U.S. was at 28%.
On a Grad Class analysis, the vintage years of course
proved most fruitful. Participation ranged around the 30%
level among the graduates from 1917 to 1925 with '23 topping them all with a 35% mark.
From there on the percentage level dropped off slowly
over the years down to the 11% of the fuzzy-cheeked '62
class. (Note to economists, historians, etc.: the '54 class
mark of 17.7% topped everything from 1940 to present day).
And the average gift of AAG, 1963? $23.97.
All it took was 60,000 separate letters.
What is Alumni Annual Giving?
It is the financial measure of the interest a_id concern of
the graduates of UBC for the needs of their University.
A.A.G. funds are used for special "quality items," many
of which are not possible through ordinary revenue sources.
Chief uses are for 42 regional scholarships, recently increased $50 to $350 each. In addition, the President's Fund,
a consistent beneficiary of A.A.G., provides uncommitted
monies of particular value to a president of UBC.
A.A.G. permits each grad to support that activity with
which Ihe has particular concern. The unallocated portion permits the Alumni Association to recognize particular areas
of need.
One of the incidental benefits to the donor of contributing to Annual Giving is receipt of the Alumni Chronicle
which is the most direct and informative link that most
graduates have with the University.
The measure of success of Annual Giving at UBC in
the past has not been high. Only one out of six graduates
of the more than 20,000 on record gave to A.A.G. '63. It is
recognized of course that many grads are instrumental in
support of the University through other mediums. However, it is felt that UBC can and should achieve in 1964
the average participation of 11 Canadian universities for
the year 1961, that is, 23.3% of all alumni contributing an
average of $26.32 per gift.
To achieve this target, we must nearly double our percentage participation. We must also achieve a further increase in size of gift. This then is Annual Giving. What part
in it will you play in the year 1964?

14.1% YOU can help
Dear fellow student:
By means of this letter we hope to acquaint all of you
with Alumni Annual Giving, its purpose, its growth, and it-
needs. We hope that you will spend a few moments and study
this insert on Alumni Annual Giving.
By now, you are all aware of President Macdonald's
report outlining the future needs of the University and higher
education in general. However, he has dealt with basic needs
only, and his report did not touch upon the special unpredictable needs that are always present. These needs include
scholarships, special building projects, athletics, and the
library, to name only a few. It is towards these needs that
A.A.G. funds are directed.
The success of the Alumni Annual Giving campaign is to
a large extent dependent upon the participation of the current
and future graduating classes. The theme of our campaign is
"PARTICIPATION — NOT AMOUNT", i.e., we are most
concerned with having everyone participate, donating only
as much as they feel they can. We hope we can count on a
large measure of support by this year's graduating class.
The future strength of the University depends in a large
measure upon our continued loyalty to it.
The donor to Alumni Annual Giving obtains an incidental benefit in that he receives the Alumni Chronicle which
keeps him informed about his University.
We feel certain that you will assume in full the responsibility of being a graduate and of Alumni Annual Giving.
To the  graduating students  go  our best wishes for a
successful future and to all students our thanks for taking
the time to read thi insert on Alumni Annual Giving.
Yours sincerely,
A.M.S. President 1963-64.
A.A.G. Student Chairman 1963-64.
A good question
• • •
Dear Mr.  Macdonald:
Your dunning letter was received with much regret on
my part. Your wording in this letter was certainly designed
to make one  angry.
As far as measuring my responsibility to University
community goes, I feel that I don't owe the university anything. I worked hard to put myself through and currently
I pay my taxes of which, although small, a portion goes towards education. However, I do feel a responsibility to my
profession and towards the community and I therefore devote a considerable portion of my spare time to community
and professional affairs. Time I can spare; cash I cannot.
If the University is not receiving enough financial support from the government, then one big job that alumni
can do, especially those with influence, is to convince the
public that the needs of a university are more than currently being supplied.
Most of the public, including myself, are confused with
present educational organization—Victoria College, Simon
Fraser, UBC, etc., etc.—What is going on? Is there a plan
or is it political? This is another job that alumni can do—
keep the public informed.
Your goal of $100,000.00 is peanuts compared to actual
costs involved and I feel that alumni can be doing greater
things than collecting such peanuts, and in the process writing dunning letters such as yours.
"A Donor"
and its answers
The president
Dear Graduate:
The past year has been marked by a significant
increase in the support to the University from the
Alumni Annual Giving. The number of donors has
increased 47.5%. The average gift increased by
64.8%. This evidence on the part of alumni that
they recognize the financial problems of lihe new
age into which The University of British Columbia
is moving is gratifying to all of us.
The University recently published in The
Chronicle a statement of its goals. The accompanying analysis showed that 14% of the University's
revenues comes from gifts and grants. With the increasing demands of graduate and professional education, the University will continue to need the
tangible as well as tihe moral support of its friends..
Because a university continues to serve the community through the years, its needs are endless. It
is, therefore, "with a lively sense of favors yet to
come" that I express to each graduate my personal
appreciation for the help you have given and for
>our faith in your University.
Yours sincerely,
President, UBC.
AAG '63 was a success. However, the aggressive
approach used to achieve this success stimulated more than
one letter of criticism. We have answered personally all
critics who wrote us, but some criticism may not have been
expressed. For that reason we are publishing one donor's
letter along with our reply to that letter. If you hold strong
views which seem to you contrary to our Alumni Annual
Giving philosophy and which are not answered to your
satisfaction in the letter of reply that follows, please write
Dear Donor:
Thank you very much for your letter and comments on
our Alumni Annual Giving program, and for the donation
which you enclosed. We regret and apologize for our wording if it made you angry. We are attempting to stir up a
large number of graduates who have never contributed to
the University, and as such we felt that this approach was
We realize that Alumni Annual Giving is small in terms
of the total budget of the University; however, we do not
consider it insignificant, nor do we feel that it has achieved
its full potential. If every graduate gave ten dollars to the
University each year, the University would receive one-
quarter of a million dollars. I think, too, that the role goes
beyond the actual amount of money received. If the graduates were to take a keener and more responsible interest
in their University, then I sincerely believe that this would
have a positive effect on the contributions of governments,
corporations,  foundations and individual  philanthropists.
The Alumni Association has attempted the other roles
that you suggest, and I believe with some degree of success,
although success in this area is always difficult to measure.
During the last provincial election campaign, for example,
Alumni interviewed every candidate and presented these
candidates individually with material about the costs and
future developments of higher education. We have staged
several successful conferences throughout the Province, to
inform the public of the issues. These have been attended
by from 200 to 600 pople in areas such as Prince George,
Kelowna, Nanaimo, Vernon, the Fraser Valley, Cranbrook,
Castelgar. The UBC Alumni Chronicle is another source of
information for those who wish to be informed, and as a
member of the Alumni Board of Management, I assure you
that we meet frequently and deal with the subjects that you
suggest. Plans take time to evolve, and much has been
accomplished. We do have the Macdonald Report, which
is a plan, and we hope that soon we will have further plans.
Recently a plan for campus development was released.
Again, we thank you for your interest and for the trouble,
you took to write us a letter. If you wish further information, I will be only too pleased to supply you with it. In
closing, I would assure you that your contribution is worthwhile. In the years, ahead, we must have support on an
unprecedented scale, and I do believe that the Alumni can
show the lead, and show by their own actions that this support is very much needed.
Roderick W. Macdonald,
A.A.G.   1963.

This isn't the final result of the IBM com-

Just the initial reaction.
More than 1,200 students have been sent
an eight - page questionnaire asking them
about their tinancial position. The students
were selected at random from the total student population by B. W. Crowe and Associates research consultants.
The questionnaire is intended to provide
a comprehensive picture of the tinancial situation of UBC students.
It is hoped that the tabulated results will
form the basis of detailed submissions on student aid to be presented to the federal and
provincial governments this spring.
If you have received one of these questionnaires, please fill it out as accurately and
as fully as possible. Its prompt return will assure the students of UBC that there will be
solid, irrefutable facts to back up their submissions.
Return address, stamped envelopes have
been provided with the questionnaire.
The validity, and consequently the usefulness, of the entire survey depends upon the
prompt return of your questionnaire.

The latest littlemag to hit
campus is Ledphartte's (yes,
pronounced it as it sounds).
Put out by a Fort Camp
group calling themselves the
Young Bourgeois Artists' and
Authors' Association, member
of UCC and the AMS, it's no
worse than the current spate
of littlemags spewing from the
depths of various English 202
classes, and in some ways it's
a damn sight better.
Ledphartte's. Volume One
Number One, is, of course,
strictly  from  amateur.
But so what? It inspires, if
nothing else, a "What the hell
—at least it's funny" reaction,
and does this largely by dint
of not taking itself at all seriously.
• •    •
Ledphartte's is amateur, pretends to be nothing else, laughs
at itself so much you wonder
if maybe it's not laughing at
you, and, in brief, is well worth
the price of a glass of beer.
Content (of Ledphartte's, not
the glass of beer) varies from
the not-so-bad-at-all like Whimsy by Tom Wayman and A
Poem by John Kelsey to the
self-conscious garble of Rain.

Subtle satire it isn't. It's far
too heavy-handed to be even

The most recent arrival from
the world of Stan Getz is the
album Reflections. This is Getz
and a group backed by a string
orchestra. I can't help comparing the album to his 1961
Focus, regarding the use of
the orchestra, but Focus is still
ten times the album Reflections
The most notable difference
is that in Focus the orchestra
was well integrated into the
tracks (arrangements by Eddie
Sauter, so no wonder). In Reflections the orchestra is used
solely as a background for
Getz to display his highly admirable technique.
The album has its weak
points. I prefer Getz when
he's turned loose, and on this
album his score is too obviously
written. It's good Getz, but
most of it is not by any means
the best he can do.
• •    •
In other words, the album
is a schmaltz orchestra with
Getz in front doing his best.
There's also some vocalizing
by a vocal group ("a tapestry
of voices") on a few tracks. On
Penthouse Serenade this works,
but on the others I'd prefer to
see it left out.
But the album has a number
of very strong points that make
it well worth having. First, the
arrangements are by Claus
Ogerman and Lalo Schifrin,
and they're good.
Two very notable tracks are
Moonlight in Vermont and
Early Autumn, where Getz is
at his technical and tonal best.
There's also some excellent
guitar work by Kenny Burrell,
especially on Niletime Street.
The actual quality of the recording is as good as Verve
has ever done.
• • •
Finally, the album was obviously designed for radio play.
Only one track runs to four
minutes, the others are around
two and a half. Because of
this, the album will be excellent exposure for Getz (as if
he needed it).
Reflections is pop jazz, and
if listened to as such, it is
good pop jazz. The album is
excellent as an introduction to
Getz, or, for that matter, an
introduction to jazz generally.
This is very enjoyable jazz-
flavored background or listening music; Reflections is well
worth having if you enjoy Getz
—or if you just enjoy very good
I give it four stars.

Schizoid Totem
paying its way
The split year book is payine off.
Totem, which has been printed in one edition in previous
years, has been divided into
two books — one for graduating students and one on campus  undergraduate life.
The "graduate" Totem is almost oversubscribed and sales
of the "campus life" edition
are going well, editor Scott Mclntyre said Thursday.
"As far as I'm concerned
the whole idea of a single year
book as such, is dead," Mclntyre said.
"The new Totem will be of
more interest to the students
because each edition is aimed
at a particular group." '
Students can buy either edition at the College Shop or at
the AMS office.

The 45,270 ton S.S. Canberra is the largest liner to be
built in the U.K. since the Queen Elizabeth. The fifth
largest liner in the world, the Canberra features many
innovations, including twin streamlined, side-by-side
funnels; engine rooms located aft, instead of amidships; and huge propellers that can be locked together
in any phase relationship, thus solving the problem
of hull vibration. The Canberra's two 29-ton propellers
are constructed of a nickel-aluminum-bronze alloy,
developed by Inco. They are lighter, yet stronger
than other types of propellers, and they are extremely
resistant to corrosion and cavitation —long problems
with marine propellers. The development of this special alloy is another example of Inco's continuing
research contribution which, for some sixty years,
has  led  to  improved  techniques  and   products.

While UBC has been
entrenched in the bogs of
athletic ignominy ' for years,
foundling SFA is bursting
ahead with a vigorous and
comprehensive sports program that includes athletic
scholarships and even before
its first year of operation.
This situation is ironic and
disgusting since it is UBC,
not SFA, which possesses not
only a large student body
clamoring for years for athletic scholarships, but also
a well-heeled alumni, many
of whom are willing to contribute to athletic scholarships.
Future SFA students, B.C.
high school athletes and all
local sports fans will rejoice.
But what about UBC?
Will it continue its present
half-baked and hypocritical
athletic   program?
• •    •
Will   Dr.   Gordon   Shrum's.
plans stir the Point Grey
university out of its lethargy
and into a new era of athletic
enthusiasm and excellence?
Will 1964 be the dawn not
only for SFA but also for a
new UBC with a revised and
invigorated sports program
that includes athletic scholarships?
For surely that is the
choice. Either we continue
with our present obsolete system or we discard it in favor
of progress and common-
With a retention of the
present program, UBC athletics, already wallowing,
will inevitably sink still further. Because now many good
high school athletes previously destined for Thunderbird
uniforms will undoubtedly
take their education on Burnaby Mountain.
• •    •
At present, also, interest in
university athletics is a UBC
monopoly. This monopoly is
due to be snatched away completely by SFA.
An exodus of our better
coaches, a continuance of
administrative incompetence
and yet even smaller crowds
than we see today would be
other natural outcomes of
UBC's   continued   inaction.
Worse yet, the calibre of
UBC athletics will deteriorate, perhaps even below the
laughable level of Canadian
prairie schools.
Imagine UBC in last place
in WCIAA football and basketball!
• •    •
Luckily we are left with an
alternative. The choice is
clear — decadence or vigor,
apathy or enthusiasm, inferiority  or excellence.
The major stumbling-block
appears to be the UBC Senate — a group of individuals
which is, despite the claims
of UBC athletic czar Robert
Osbourne, irrevocably against
athletic scholarships.
Let us only hope that Dr.
Shrum's farsightedness and
level-headedness will spark
the Senate into an awareness
of the importance of athletics,

John Thomas, director of
International House, asked
Thursday for 175 local students to introduce foreign students into Vancouver and UBC
life in the fall.
Thomas said a comprehensive training program has been
set up to indoctrinate local
"buddies" about the special
problems they will encounter
with their foreign student.
The relationship will probably start out as a pen-pal
arrangement, Thomas said.
Local students participating
in the program will meet also
with fellow - countrymen of
their "buddies".
When the newcomer arrives
in the fall, the Vancouver student will be there to meet him
at the airport and settle him
into the Canadian scene.
UBC students interested
should apply for an interview
to International House within
a few days, Thomas said.
