New student president
McAfee wins by 1,000
Hender, McMeans
take other spots
Roger McAfee, 24, a first-year law student, flattened his
opposition Wednesday night to become Alma Mater Society
president for 1964-65.
The former Ubyssey editor polled 52 per cent of the
student votes. His nearest opponent, Arts president Mike
Coleman, got 35 per cent. Surprise entry into the campaign,
engineer Ken Harrison, managed 12 per cent.
McAfee polled 2,819 to Cole-

Junk in boxes
Eager voters
ballot all up
If you've lost your AMS card, chances are it was in one
of the AMS ballot boxes.
Because there were lots of
them found when the votes
were counted last night.
Some even had notes accompanying them, requesting their
return to the owners.
And there were lots of other
things found in the boxes, too.
A few assorted pens, notes, and
even somebody's ring.
Some of the ballots were
covered with obscenities, some
were marked with personal
notes to the candidates, and
some of the preferential ballots
were marked with three Is or
three Xs.
Many of the ballot-counters
noticed odd or improperly
marked ballots, and they shouted the news to their friends
across the room.
There were notes on the
Mock Parliament ballots such
as, "I'm for freedom and happiness — none of these parties
fill the bill."
And thee were notes on others saying "What are you doing
here? You should be at home
While the tension mounted,
the ballots were counted. Candidates were prematurely congratulating their opposition,
campaign managers were sweating, and supporters were shooting spit wads across the counting room.
Then the adding machine
broke down, and the election
machinery came to an abrupt
half.    More spitballs.

Receipts ready
for T-4, too
Receipts for fees will be
available to students on
Monday, Feb. 10, according
to the accounting office at
The receipts are necessary
for income tax purposes, a
spokesman for the administration said.
They can be picked up at
the cashier's wicket in the
administration building any
time after Monday.
Students can deduct their
tuition fees, not including
AMS fee, from their taxable
man's 1,915 and Harrison's 656.
Byron Hender, 22, present
AMS second vice president was
easily re-elected, beating opponent Howard Faulkner, Arts II,
by 3,148 votes to 2,063.
Joining Hender and McAfee
on next year's executive will be
Ma r i 1 y n McMeans, presently
Arts secretary.
She won on a second-ballot
count, beating Ruth Dumont,
P.E. II, and Donna Morris, Fort
Camp women's president.
Miss McMeans polled 2,720 to
Miss Dumont's 2,221 on the second ballot. Miss Morris was eliminated on the first ballot with
only 1,444 votes.
Returning officer Dennis
Browne said the turnout was
one of the largest on record.
Total vote was 5,390.
At one stage during the polling, several polling stations
ran out of ballots, and voting
was temporarily halted.
The expected fight between
McAfee and Coleman failed
to materialize. The first ballot
chalked on the election tote-
board in the Brock TV room
was indicative of the evening.
McAfee took Acadia Camp
with 130 votes to Coleman's
45 and Harrison's 19.
The jubilant McAfee said he
will work for a restoration of
good relations between student
council and the administration.

Liberals gain minority victory
The Liberal Party will form
a minority government in the
1964 Model  Parliament.
They have 36 seats in the
80-seat  house.
The New Democratic Party
received 18 seats, and will be
the official opposition.
Social Credit won 12 seats,
three more than last year,
topping the Conservatives for
the first time.
The Tories dropped to
fourth place, with  H seats.
Communists gained one seat
more than last year, for a total of three.
The Liberals recieved 2,305
votes out of a 5,220 total. The
NDP got 1,184, Tories 708,
Socpeds 743, Communists 212,
and there were 68 spoiled ballots.
Murry Bowman, president
of the campus Liberal Club,
will be Prime Minister.
Leader of the opposition will
be Richard Pollard, NDP club
Proportional representation
is being used for the first
time in this year's parliament.
Previously, the winning party
had gained at least 40 seats,
regardless of their percentage
of the total vote.
Bowman said he was quite
satisfied with the result.
"There is general satisfaction with the policies of the
federal government," he said.
"I'm happy to see the Tories in fourth place now," he
said.   "Next  year,   they'll be
battling with the Communists
for last place."
Bowman said he was telegraphing the results to Prime
Minister Lester Pearson and
provincial Liberal leader Ray
Although his party will
form a minority government,
Bowman does not expect to
be defeated in a non-confidence motion.

Crafty Ken Leitch wants to close Mildred Brock Lounge
because it's a "pig pen."
Earlier this year Leitch closed the room for a week because
of the mess.
Half the girls polled as they
left Mildred, the ladies' lounge,
agreed with Brock co-ordinator
Leitch who called Mildred a
"pig pen" Wednesday.
And they felt Leitch's threat

Some of the observers and
reporters left, for drinks, or
some fresh air.
But then a new machine was
produced by the ever-present
Malcolm Scott, and the election
procedure ground on.
The winners were announced
and went around collecting
their congratulations, receiving
the support of the losers, and
acting like all politicians who
have just been elected to any
public office.
But regardless of the outcome, the final cry that left
Brock Hall ringing was: "On to
the Arms".
to close the lounge if things
don't improve was fair, though
they hope he is bluffing.
The AMS co-ordinator fumed, "It's a real pig pen. If this
is how the female side of campus is going to live, we'll close
the place."
Asked about the pig-pen
threat, Alison Mutch, Arts I,
said: ''Quite true. But only a
few make the mess."
But Diane Goodbrand, Education I, and another Leitch
supporter, claimed "everybody
makes the mess — only a few
clean it up."
Some Mildredites are still
loyal, though.
"That's not fair," said Diane
Oswald, Ed. I. "I wonder what

Olympics flop Finns
in tight 6-2 victory
Father Bauer's Olympic hockey squad sewed up third
place in the winter Olympics at Innsbruck Wednesday
with a tight 6-2 victory over Finland.
Olympics face Czechs today, then play Russia Saturday morning. Canadians have to win both to win Olympic
gold medal.
Bob Forhan paced the Canadian squad with three
goals. Ray Cadieux, Terry Clancy and Hank Akervall
scored single goals.
Olympics led 2-1 after the first period, then scored
three unanswered goals in the second and held on to the
lead in the final period.

Pollard was upset about
the Socred gain.
"It's a reflection on the intelligence of the students

A last-minute entry into the

The Conservative drop was

The party could not rouse the

than the Communists in the

Brock Hall turned radical,

votes in the two polls there.
NDP proposal
Prof maps out
free fee plan
University education should be free to students — and
UBC's students shouldn't have had to pay the recent fee
Professor-politician Dr. John
Norris said Tuesday all levels
of education should be free and
that federal, provincial, municipal and well-to-do people
should have paid for UBC's recent fee increase.
Norris outlined a free education system the New Democratic Party would put into effect if in power to a small UBC
"It is similar to the federal
government's post-war ex-personnel training program," he
Under the NDP's plan, a
rigid investigation would be
made to determine how many
professional people the community needs and will need in
the future.
A corresponding number of
university entrants would be
allowed and money provided
for their education.
"Some money could come
from a cut in the defence budget," Norris said.
He said the transfer of funds
from federal defence to provincial education would not be
Under the proposed system,
most people who are now going
to university would continue
to do so, Norris said.
"Undergraduate costs should
be financed by the province,"
he said. "The cost of graduate
studies and research, however,
is the responsibility of the
federal government."
Norris admitted the system
would not be perfect.
"It would subsidize a lot of
people who could pay," he
But he pointed out that
scholarships would definitely
be available for needy students.
Dr. Norris said Canada must
make a great effort to produce
highly trained academic people.

Defeated presidential candidate Coleman said he thought
the campaign had been good,
hard-fought and clean. He said
he would not run in any other
AMS election.
Coleman managed to win
only one poll — Brock South—
where he beat McAfee 338-263,
a margin of only 65.
This was the second defeat
for Coleman. Last year he lost
to Jim Ward in the race for
first vice president.
Hender won all but one of
the campus' 14 polls in his
battle. He lost in engineering,
where he was defeated badly
last year.
"I'm glad to be back," said
Hender. "And I hope to continue the society's effective
public  relations program."
Defeated candidate Faulkner said he would be back to
try again, but not on the second slate.
The second-year Arts student was virtually unknown
before the campaign.
Miss McMeans, also in second year Arts, had no comment, other than to say she
wanted to phone her mother
when the result was announced.
"I'm too flabbergasted to say
anything," she said. "If I was
going to win, I wanted to win
by 500 votes."
Miss McMeans beat Miss
Dumont by 499.
Second slate elections for
treasurer, first vice-president,
and co-ordinator of activities
will be held next Wednesday.

"... and they all go to
university where they all
get put in boxes, and they
all come out the same ..."
So, children, you have just
elected your first slate of
tickey-tackey student councillors.
At time of writing, I don't
know which three of the
eight tickey-tackey candidates
you have put into the particular boxes from whence
they'll all come out the same,
but it doesn't make a helluva
lot of difference.
Look at their campaigns.
Did you ever see such milksop
efforts in all your miserable
young life?
Sure you did—during last
year's silly season.
And this year the tradition was maintained—tradition being something near and
dear to people taking the university route to their own
particular little tickey-tackey
boxes in the world.
The candidates composed
nice little lists of excuses why
they thought you should elect
them, and, after giving the
matter your rational-college-
education consideration, you
picked the one you wanted to
vote for.
No action, no excitement,
no interest.
Despite the pompous and
usually quite fatuous manoeuvres councillors perform
while trying to impress themselves, each other, and the
campus at large, you can tell
they themselves don't really
take their jobs seriously.
In the world of reality outside the gates, where people
DO take their politics seriously, you can tell by their campaigns.
Ho, boy. Slander, mudsling-
ing, infighting, dirty fighting
—the  whole  bit.
Adult Canadians, staid as
they are reputed to be, seem
to come up with some real
hoo-haw, razzamatazz political activity.
But not staid Canadian students.
They all want to come up(
smelling    like    petunias,    so
they don't sling any political
mud  for fear  of being  spattered.
As a result, they parade as
a group of nice-nellie, uninspired, tickey-tackey types
who don't consider the offices they want important

C-lot full of mud just waiting
to be slung among this year's
crop of candidates.
Things like questions of

But was it slung? Oh, gosh,

Canadian Youth, didn't even

Old soldiers never die—

generals Tuesday.
Sir Ouvry was British

retired in 1952.
Sir Ouvry said General
Douglas McArthur, Field Marshall Sir William Slimm and
Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery were great captains
of the second world war.

Sir Ouvry, who knew both
Montgomery and Slimm personally during the war, de-
scribed Montgomery as
"strong-Willed, determined,
resentful of criticism and believed he was always right."
Slimm had an entirely different personality. "In the
books which they have written since, Slimm criticises nobody but himself; Monty criticises many people but never
But the careers of the two
soldiers were parallel. Both
commanded armies after defeat; both brought these
armies to victory: Slimm recaptured Burma, Montgomery recaptured North Africa.

Sir Ouvry, however, rated
Slimm slightly above Montgomery, because of the failure of one of Montgomery's
airborne landings in North
Better than either of these
men, however, was the
American general, Douglas
McArthur, Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces.
"McArthur was always outstanding and often brilliant,"
said Sir Ouvry, "No soldier
ever had more confidence in
his manner than he did.
"Many people consider him
to be one of history's greatest generals.

everything   McArthur   did."

Tic tax toe
We were pleased to see that our fine minister of
highways, Mr. Gaglardi, says UBC is going to get lots
of money this year.
Despite this fact, however, the fees have been raised.
The students must pay their share, after all.
We suspect that the strange coincidences that surround UBC's deal with the provincial government indicate that Social Credit policies are being adopted by
campus authorities.
This is evidenced by the existence of Sir Ouvry's
UBC Toll Roads and Parking Lots Authority, which is
even legally associated with Mr. Bennett's bridge boys.
Kiosks have gone up at all the close-in parking lots.
We're charged $5 a year to park in hubcap-deep mud
three-quarters of a mile from our classrooms.
And now, the intrepid patrolmen are vigorously
guarding the entrances to East Mall, so that no student
cars can slip through the rain to pick up or unload passengers.
This campus never had parking meters until a year
ago. And now, these nickel-nursers are everywhere,
bureaucratic evidence of the pay-now, park-later plan.
Students of UBC, don't say we didn't warn you!
There are worse things to come.
Ever notice those sneaky little turnstiles they make
you go through to get into the library? Pretty subtle,
we'd say. You're just getting used to them now, but
one day soon—wham! They'll put a uniformed guard
and a toll-booth right beside them. Fifty cents an hour
to read in the library.
Ever notice those little clamrps on the doors of campus Johns? That's where the meters will go. It will
cost you a nickel to answer the call of nature. Just
think, 15,000 students at five cents a day—why, we can
afford to give the director of the P.E. school a mahogany-
panelled office every year at that rate.
And the bookstore. Not only will they continue to
put exhorbitant markups on their books, they'll charge
you a dime just to get through those annoying little turnstiles. Can't riffle through magazines for free these days,
Who knows where it will end? We think we'll quit
when the professors start demanding tips.
Mr. Gaglardi also let us in on the secret of Socred
success Monday.
Replying to a heckler, the hon. minister of highways
stated that he was used to abuse, and that every good
man in history has been wrongfully abused. "Remember, they crucified Christ," he said righteously.
We aren't sure that there's necessarily any unusual
connection between Mr. Gaglardi and Christ, although
we've heard that the premier thinks he's God.
But we have always been amazed as year after year,
despite the most arrogant policies, the Socreds get reelected. Now we are sure they've been getting some

critical owl, has got my goat.
In his weekly column, Owl
and Goat, he has made a statement with which even the
most   blatant   optimist   could
not possibly agree. I quote,
"Radsoc's programming would
be more appropriate for a
university audience if the
people responsible were somewhat less attentive to the hit
parade."    How true!
But you se, sir, we have
sponsors. Well, sir, these
sponsors keep us on the air.
They keep us on the air because they think people listen
to us.
As a result, we have to compromise. We have to program
for the majority. This is most
unfortunate. As you must
know, Mr. Lamb, at least 50
per cent of the students at this
pseudo-intellectual retreat
listen almost exclusively to
the Fourth Avenue establishment, no doubt preferring to

be slobs rather than snobs.
You may also know that the
various common rooms have
speakers. Many of these speakers are turned up only when a
so-called hit song is being
played. The manure splattered patrons of one rather infamous common room will not
listen to any sort of music unless it has a certain barnyard
air about it. Granted, this is
the extreme, but we are forced
to follow public opinion to a

of classics and jazz fans. We
hear only the opinions of
rock-and-roll fans, often quite
loudly. Why don't others
speak up? I would be only
too glad to change the present music policy.
One more thing, gentlemen.
Radsoc, unlike most other university stations, must rely on
its own resources. That's
right, we don't get a $12,000
plus grant from student council, annually. By the way,
those who would like to help
rid us of the hit parade
"plague" will be able to do so
soon. Radsoc will conduct a
survey to try to find out what
kinds of music the UBC student wants to hear.
Maybe some people at UBC
have heard of Prokofiev.
Don't laugh, it's possible.
And, by the way, was Gerry
Mulligan really Vancouver's
police chief?

The well-dressed, 38-year-

it clear that the Black Muslims were a group to be

My only knowledge of the

a political science course at
UBC. I knew they were considered a hate group.
I had read that they claimed to be a peaceful sect which
didn't carry weapons but
would fight back if attacked.
Some reading before the

Although Muhammad is the

powerful spokesman   and
But Malcolm X bowed to
Muhammad last December
when Muhammad suspended
him from his leadership post
for mocking the assassination of President Kennedy.
In a speech, Malcolm X had
said President Kenedy's death
was a case of "the chickens
coming home to roost." His
followers in the audience
laughed and applauded, and
he added:
"Being an old farm boy myself, chickens coming home to
roost never did make me sad;
they've always made me
Several days later, after he
heard of the suspension, he
conceded: "I shouldn't have
said what I said." His suspension was short-lived, however,
and  he was   soon  reinstated.
When Malcolm X came to
Columbia, he looked like a
man who has a wife and two
children. He didn't look like
an ex-convict — he was a
Harlem racketeer while in his
teens—who has won a reputation for shrewdness and
eloquence during his 15 years
with the Black Muslim movement.
He spoke clearly, without
anger, but with a sense of
compelling urgency:
"We don't feel it is up to
the white man to tell us when
we can get up. It is up to us
to get on to our feet by whatever means is necessary."
Malcolm X repeatedly
stressed that the Black Muslims believed Negro freedom
and equality in the United
States could be reached only
through complete separation
of white and Negro.
"The only salvation today
for the Black Man is to submerge himself in blackness,"
he said.
The two best solutions, he
suggested, would be for American Negroes either to return to Africa or to settle in
their own Negro-only part of
the United States.
"All costs involved should
be paid by the United States,"
he said, "because America
owes black people for more
than 300 years of slave labor.
Malcolm X went on to suggest that this showed Negroes
with national stature are not
independent leaders of the
Negroes, but rather are still
responsible to the "white liberals".
"And these things which
call themselves 'white liberals' are the most dangerous
things (to Negro freedom) in
America," he said.
"But the black man is waking up. You can't continue to
appease him with tokenism.
You see with what violence
the whites are reacting to this
"When the Negroes demand
their full rights, white society will act even more violently, and then to their shock,
the Negroes will react with
violence, too."
Most of those who heard
Malcolm X found his ideas
and plans completely reprehensible, but the press conference came off without any
Perhaps it was because his
fervent eloquence commanded respect.
Or perhaps it had something
to do with the squad of young
men, members of the Fruit of
Islam, a Black Muslim elite
well-versed in judo, who had
come with Malcolm X and
spread themselves throughout
the meeting.
Editor,  The  Ubyssey:
At this time, the Nurses'
Undergraduate Society would
like to make an official statement regarding the late publicity in The Ubyssey.
We feel that it is both logical and reasonable that the
fees in the school of nursing
should be increased to a level
comparable to those of other
faculties on campus. Mature
acceptance of the situation
should not be confused with
The sensational tactics used
in the editorial of Jan. 30
resulted in a distorted view
of the nursing students and
faculty. We respect the rights
of free press, but slander does
not c o n s t i t ute intelligent
• •    •
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The only good thing about
this fee-hike is that it has
aroused a little interest in a
small, almost unknown department on our campus.
Nursing is a part of the
faculty of Applied Science
and has an enrollment this
year of about 180 students. It
also employs 17 staff members, eight of which are full-
time clinical instructors.
Because it is comparatively
unknown, many girls who
enter it don't really know
what they are in for. I remember my amazement in first
year when I was told that I
would have to have personal
interviews with members of
the faculty, and tell my advisor all my problems and
have her give me advice.
• •    •
This continued through my
four years of study and was
considered essential to turning out a good professional
nurse. I hear things haven't
changed much since then.
A couple of my girl friends
are in nursing now and are
very concerned about the fee
increase. But they tell me
Miss Mallory is upset too. She
gave them a little talk the
other day to reassure them.
She says an increase in the
department of nursing is long
overdue ... I guess it is considering the number of staff
they are paying . . . and the
only unfortunate part is that
the girls in first and second
years weren't  forewarned.
But, she says, surely your
mother can go to work or you
can take out ANOTHER loan
in order to come back. Just
because you only have a
month and a half or so in the
summer in which you are
supposed to rest up for the
coming year, and can't earn
any money is no reason why
you can't come back.
If you can't afford to support yourself, or if your parents can't afford it, then you
shouldn't be here in the first
place, she says.
And what about the service
to the hospital? Miss Mallory
says you are being paid by
having your meals and getting your laundry done. It's
true the experience is invaluable, and you can't gain proficiency in nursing from books
alone, but shouldn't the Board
of Governors take into consideration the fact that second and third -year nurses
spend half their time at the
University, and half at the
•    •    •
Some other reasons why
nurses' fees shouldn't be
upped so drastically is the
fact that uniforms and shoes
cost about $80, plus extra
public health uniforms and
the price of medical books,
which  are  astronomical.
Now that I've graduated, I
can afford to protest. I won't
be called on the carpet, but
I can't help feeling sympathetic towards those girls who
are facing a fee-raise, afraid
to protest, being reassured by
the faculty that things are
as they should be, and trying
to get enough sleep so they
can be alert and on the wards
at 7:30 a.m.
Careful on this newspaper — it's art!
"Art Becomes Reality" is
the name of the game. It is
being played in the Fine Arts
Gallery. The object of the
game is to determine how
quickly whatever taste in art
that students have can be
utterly destroyed. Pretty
damn quickly from the looks
of  things.
The entrance to the gallery
is papered with newspapers.
Newspapers are pretty real.
Used as wallpaper, they are
also art,, it seems.
Only the slogan is backwards. It should read "Reality Becomes Art".
Last  week's   issue   of Life
magazine has a picture in it
of a poor hill family in the
Appalachians of New York
State. The woman has a number of dirty kids and they
got the walls of their shack
all dirty. So the woman papered them with newspapers.
I guess she doesn't know she
isn't keeping the walls clean.
She is creating art. Stupid
woman. Why doesn't she do
something for her family instead of fooling around in the
, ethereal world of art?
Two -thirds of the way
through the exhibit there is i
wooden box about a foot wide
on all sides sitting on a ped
estal. There are no openings
in the box except at the bottom where a small hole allows
a cord to hang down and
which is plugged into the
wall somewhere. Noises come
from the box. The artist says
these are the noises of the
box under construction.
One girl put her ear close
to the box and listened with
rapt attention. "Wonderful",
she said to her girl friend.
"Only I wonder why he didn't make a record of it instead?"^).
That box should be rebuilt
and placed in it should be the
severed   head   of   the   artist.
Then it should be dropped into
the sea. And that girl should
be sent after it with 200
pounds of lead weight strapped to her waist. She can
wonder about the gurgling
while she is down there.
That would be "Art Becomes Reality" all right. Permanently real. The fishes
could enjoy it.
Unless the fire-bug sees his
duty, the exhibit will last all
week. All the silly people
who like it shoud go several
times and then go home and
think about the backwoods of
New York.
Grub, grub. Art, art.

A better location, bigger names and a little more college
spirit are needed for next year's homecoming dances.
This is what the new Home
coming    Committee   chairman
Council Monday appointed
Rick McGraw, Commerce II,
to the dhairmanship of the
1964  Homecoming   committee.
He was the only applicant
for the position.
McGraw, this year's Special
Events committee chairman,
told council that more interest
must be created in homecoming, to get it back on its fin
ancial feet.
"The dance is a most im
portant event, and downtown
it would have a better chance
of success.
"The trouble of two dances
downtown would be incomprehensible, so the possibilities of
big hotels or places like the
Showmart or the Agrodome
would be investigated.
"A change of the entertainment to a name big band would
be very good. I know we can
get bands like Henry Mancini
and Martin Denny for $3,000
or less, which would be a reasonable price for an event of
this type."
McGraw also suggested that
a trainload from the University of Alberta be brought to
UBC, along with their football
and hockey teams.
He said traditional events,
such as the Queen contest, parade, and the Great Trekker
award would be continued.

Dominion Bureau of
This year Canada is host
to more than 8,000 foreign
college students, and it is
likely this number will
double during the next decade.
As many Canadian students are studying abroad.
These are ambassadors for
our country as are non-
Canadian students studying
here ambassadors for theirs.
What   do  these   ambassadors find here?
This is the first of two
articles by Dr. Whitworth on
foreign students in Canada.
A recent survey by the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics attempted to find out.
Nearly 4,000 foreign students filled out lengthy
questionnaires. Here are
some of the things we found.
One item dealt with difficulties in making friends.
About one in five reported
he had trouble making
Some of the comments
were favorable, although occasionally a little puzzling:
"I find that I am well received and that the people
treat me as one of their own.

is Canada becoming over-

"The Canadian people are

lives,—one certainly feels
a part of the community."
"During my three years
in Canada I have been impressed by the kindness and
thoughtfulness of most Canadians I. have met. This has
helped me adjust to a new
way  of life."
A real problem, since it
raises emotional responses,
is  the relationship of visit
ing students with Canadian
girls. Again there was a lively range of opinions.
"I love Canadian girls but
I'll never marry one because
they have too much freedom
and do not respect their

Some difficulty in obtaining suitable accommodation was experienced by one-
fifth of the students and one
out of twenty had a good
deal of trouble.
Since one-sixth of the students from the U.S.A. and
Great Britain reported some
difficulty, all the trouble
cannot be ascribed to racial
and other differences, although the comments as the
following indicated that
some of the students met

One student said, "Many
owners refuse to rent accomodation by giving feeble
excuses—'come back tomorrow and we'll see." A second said, "I found the college rooms registry extremely hesitant about sending me
to the type of accomodation
I wanted. I studied in St.
Lucia and London, England,
and travelled the length and
breadth of Europe without
encountering any discrimination . . . although he concluded, "Once oriented I
found accommodation and
made many friends."
Some trouble with the
language wzis reported by
from 15-18 per cent, and
severe difficulties were experienced by from 3 to 5 per
About the same percentages   reported   having   diffi
culty with the subject matter.
"On the whole I find a
lack of sincerity among
people in Canada. Most
people tend to show interest
in other people only because
'it is the thing to do.'- As a
result a false stilted atmosphere is created although
from a financial point of
view I never would have
made as much money elsewhere."
"The sum total of Canadian society seems to be ignorance and hypocrisy tem-
ered by materialism."
"Canadians are not interested in anything outside
Canada—too busy with the
rat race."
• •    •
Attitudes to the Canadian
university depended somewhat on previous school experience.
They ranged from criticism because of the formal
highly organized education
structure with compulsory
classes, attendance and a
surfeit of tests to appreciation of a genuine interest in
the students.
"The first year studies are
on a par with senior high
school studies in many
states."   (U.S.  student).
"I entered Canada with
nine Polish grades and entered Grade XIII at age 15.
I made an average of 90 although I knew no English
when I arrived. Canadian
high schools lag 4-5 years behind Poland. But this is not
true of university standards."
• • •
"Canadian ideas on education seem strangely outmoded—and education consists in no more than passing
examinations. The atmosphere at the university is
too tense, 75 per cent of the
students are worried about
flunking. Few A's are given.
The tests are too difficult
for the teaching received
and time allowed."
Minority will
lead to reform'
Canada's parliament should be streamlined.
And opposition members
should be provided with better research facilities, says Bob
Prittie, NDP Member of Parliament for Burnaby-Richmond.
He told students reforms can
be made if the present minority government continues.
"In the present situation
there are possibilities for
change," he said. "The cabinet is more conciliatory when
in a minority in order to get
the support of the opposition."
Prittie said bills should
need only two readings to be
"One stage in the present
system of debates can be cut,"
he said. "Only two readings
are necessary to debate the
topic in question."
Prittie attacked the lack of
adequate research facilities
available for members of
"T h e committee system
which could provide the necessary research material is not
as effective as it could be," he
Members who wish to contribute debates are restricted
by the dearth of these facilities, he said.
Prittie said the American
Congress, unlike the Canadian
Parliament, can set up its own
committees, and vote its own
funds for research.
"Our lack of facilities shows
up when compared to those of
he U.S.  Congress."
"The whole parliamentary
;ystem is weakened by the
'act that research assistance is
lot available."
He denied that Parliament
vorks too slowly.
"The Canadian House of
Commons is a model of speed
and a considerable amount of
'.egislation has been passed in
a short time."
"I doubt that the U.S. Congress has passed the same volume . in the same period of
■ime," he said.

less encouraging that the

the individualist stage

roads torn up again, wires
laid, roads repaved etc . . .
Now the roads appear
to be dug up at the beginning of a project and left
that way for months in
case someone should feel
like laying a pipe. Meanwhile students have to
tread plywood into the mire
if they want to get from
the Hennings Building to

on their way to parking
lots have to bounce over
