Vol.   XLVI
No.  29
SUB vote
by chairman
The  SUB   didn't sink or  swim at   Thursday's  general
meeting.   It didn't even come to a vote.
Nor was a decision made on
whether   to   keep   the   Frosh
president on council.
At the beginning of the
meeting city lawyer Don Jabour, brought in to chair the
meeting impartially, said: "The
only motion I will entertain is
the one that ends discussion."
But there couldn't have
been a vote anyway.
By the end of the two-hour
meeting the more than 2,000
students in attendance had
dwindled to less than 800.
Quorum for a general meeting vote is 1,472 students—10
per cent of enrolled students
Students will get a chance
to vote on the issue in a referendum   Nov.   22.     (See   story
page 2).

7/ per cent sales tax
UBC's an unmunicipality
and pays through the nose
When UBC buys an $8,000
garbage truck, it pays 11 per
cent federal sales tax—$900.
But when Burnaby, Vancouver, or any other municipality
buys an identical truck, there
is no tax.
. Municipalities are exempt
from sales taxes on materials
and equipment used for providing  municipal  services.
But UBC, which provides
the same services for the campus, is not exempt, assistant
purchasing agent S. G. Potts
said Thursday.
He said other universities
in Canada are located inside
city limits and don't have to
provide the same services.
UBC must pay for all roads
on campus except for Marine
Drive, all sewers, gas lines,
power lines, water mains and
sidewalks, as well as supply
garbage collection and other
"We pay 11 per cent on all
items we buy for these services, but a municipality like
Burnaby doesn't have to," said
"And if UBC was located in
a city, most of these services
would be provided by the
city," he said.
"It's ridiculous. I'm buying
the same things as Burnaby,
but I must pay the sales tax."
He said the UBC fire department   is   paid   for   jointly

Referendum to decide
At 12:44 p.m. the meeting
was called to order by AMS
president   Malcolm   Scott.
AMS first vice-president
Jim Ward then conducted the
passage of proposed constitutional revisions on office ele-
gibility for student government
officials and the establishment
of a student court.
At 12:50 p.m. the meeting
was turned over to Jabour,
AMS solicitor and a 1956-57
president of the society.
Many students attending
were under the impression
that the issue would be settled
at the meeting and feelings
ran high.
Jabour alternated speakers,
one for, one against, for an
hour and a half .
Malcolm Scott, AMS president, was the first to speak
in favor of SUB. He also announced the referendum plan.
More than 25 speakers aired
opinions on the issue.
Speakers in favor of SUB
cited  the  inadequate facilities
now available for student extra-curricular activities.
Brock Hall was called everything from 'inadequate" to "a
bare barn."
Peter Hyndman, Law I,
and former student president
of the University of Alberta,
at Edmonton, gained the largest hand from the SUB supporters.
He said present AMS members have three responsibilities: To the students who came
before us and provided us
with many facilities, to ourselves, and to those students
who  will  come  after  us.
Speakers against the SUB
complained about the high
cost of the project, the high
interest costs, the lack of
support from administration
and government, and the building's possible effect on the university's public relations.
The   attitude   of   many   of
the speakers against SUB was
that   they   were   not   against

2 votes Nov. 22
Here are the two  referendums on the  student union
building which will be put to students next Friday:
Are you in favor of the
AMS constructing a student
union building at a capital
cost of approximately $2,861,-
632.00 plus interest, to be financed as follows:
The present AMS fee of $24
per year to remain the same.
From this fee, the $10 per
year which is now paying for
the winter sports centre, shall
be directed to the student
union building project when
the winter sports centre is
paid off.

centre is paid off.
The wording of both refer
endums is subject to amendment by student council at
Monday night's meeting.
To pass, both referendums
need a two-thirds majority,
and 20 per cent (about 2,900)
of the student body must vote.

The first referendum will decide whether or not students
want a SUB, as it has been
outlined, and paid for by a
$10 per-student levy for 30
The second referendum asks
whether or not students want
an alternate method of financing. It asks for a $5 increase
in the student fee so that $15
per year per student can go
to SUB. This method pays the
building off in 15 years, saving some $1.5 million in interest.

(Value of the building is
abouj; $3.8 million, of which
students will pay $2.86 million,
plus interest. Interest over 30
years is $2.9 million, making
total cost of the building to
students $5.76 million; interest over 15 years is $1.4 million, bringing total cost to students to  $4.26 million).

no alternatives were presented.
Bill Piket, Arts IV, said he
knew Brock was not adequate
for student needs:
"I know. I've lived in Brock
for four years," he said. But
he questioned the large expenditure of funds and the fact
that interest will double the
cost of the building by the
time its paid for.
About the only fence-sitter
at the meeting was EUS president Pete Shepard. He emphasized, amid hoots from the
EUS section, that all Engineers were voting as individuals
not enmasse.
But most of the engineering
noise  sounded  anti-SUB.
Dean Feltham ,chairman of
the committee which has
planned the current SUB proposal, refused to comment on
student reaction to his proposals.

passed laws—anti-trust legislation.
On the UBC campus there

up, the so-called food service.

Why man, were not customers, we're students, and if

A $2.3 million contract for
a multi-purpose classroom and
office building has been awarded to Farmer Construction by
the UBC board of governors.
The building, to be constructed at the corner of the
Main Mall and University
Boulevard, will house the
faculty of commerce and social
science departments.
Total cost, including services, furnishings and other
equipment, will be $2,896,392.
Expected completion date is
the summer of 1965.
The building will consist of
an eight-storey office block
facing University Boulevard
and a four-storey classroom
block on the main mall with
two lecture theatres seating
300 each.
There will be 12 classrooms
seating from 45 to 100 persons, seven laboratories, ten
seminar rooms, six project
rooms and five departmental
reading rooms.
Architects are Thompson,
Berwick and Pratt.
Parts of A-lot and B-lot will
be made into permanent, paved
parking areas next year.

will be made to C-lot, the area

The permanent areas will be

lot (a faculty area), he said.
Sir Ouvry said no permanent lighting would be installed in C-lot for the same
reasons. (Students have complained they can't find their
car pools at night because of
poor lighting).
He said no plans were presently underway to construct
a sidewalk down the East Mall
from Clot.
"The traffic problem there
is caused mainly by pedestrian
cross-traffic, not by those
people walking straight in
from the parking lot."

Well, they came out in droves at the general meeting
They're the same bunch who bitch about the way
student government is run, about tihe way the football
team plays, and about the things that officials everywhere don't do or don't care about on campus.
Some of them write letters to the editor, or say the
odd thing to a student councillor.
Most of 'em just grumble and mumble and fumble.
They are the people who don't take any interest in
student affairs; most of them don't even vote in the annual
student government elections.
Then when somebody does something, they beef.
Several good examples of this type were evident
"What do you mean, a meeting of my undergraduate
society discussed the SUB," said one, importantly. "I
wasn't at that meeting."
And the other one who scoffed at the fact that the
members of student council had backed SUB.
"Who are they to say what's good for the students?"
this one demanded. "Only 20 per cent of the students
voted for them, anyway."
Add the anti-SUB crew to tihe list. These are the
people who, despite months of consultation with interest
groups, clubs and undergraduate societies, despite countless open meetings and panel discussions on the matter,
have never until now found the time or the motivation
to come forward with their suggestions—or, as they
should more appropriately be labelled, beefs.
These people belong with the armchair quarterbacks,
the second-guessers, and the I-told-you-so's.
Like tiheir counterparts in the outside world, they
don't deserve the privileges they derive from the various
organizations they like to think they belong to.
These people don't deserve the right to vote.
In view of the difficulty the AMS seems to have
getting people out to the polls, and in view of the amount
of squawking going on, we have a suggestion.
Don't let anybody who doesn't vote in the student
government elections have any say in subsequent referendums, meetings, or decisions of any kind.
Then watch our friends squawk.
The $5 mud fee
That cartoon up there on the right takes on added
significance.^when you consider all that rain we've had
in the last week.
Pity the poor students who have to walk in C-lot,
The lot, which holds something like 2,500 cars, is a
quagmire of mud, puddles, and the odd stretch of gravel.
Worse, the students who are forced to pay $5 a year
to park there can't find their cars at night, because no
lights have been provided.
And they must struggle through the murk and mud
without the benefit of sidewalks or gum boots.
It's bad enough having to pay $5 to park in the boondocks. But it's downright insulting when what you get
is belittled by tihe surface in the adjoining turkey pens.
We  have been reassured,  however,  by Sir Ouvry
Roberts, traffic and parking superintendent, who says
' that A-lot and tihe south end of B-lot will soon be made
permanent, paved, lighted lots.
He also informs us that C-lot, when it becomes permanently located south of Agronomy Rd., will be paved
and lighted as well.
We congratulate Sir Ouvry for these worthwhile
plans. But we still wince at the spiffy khaki uniforms
his patrolmen wear, and at the shiny new siren on his
patrol wagon-cum-ambulance. We suspect that's where'
our money's really gone.
And we still think that a load of gravel in the lots
is worth two stripes on the shoulder of Sir Ouvry's right-
hand corporals.
Who I really feel sorry for are all those poor kids that have to WALK to parking lots. Imagine!

Goldwater disapproves of

Editor, The Ubyssey:
How could any person be
so indignant as to write an
article inferring that sociology teaches  nothing.
Why, my general knowledge of society and its involvement has reached a far
higher status. For example,
I have accumulated, over the
past six weeks, 12 pages of
questions to ask when wondering about a sociologist's
concept  of society.
You may ask: What do you
want 12 pages of questions
for?  The  answer is  obvious.
I expect an exam consisting
of 12 pages of answers to
which I am to supply the
questions. I also have many
wonderful diagrams which
give me a real sense Of emotion when I study them; giving me a real sense of superiority over the fact that I
I must commend our sociology professor for criticizing the last protest of sociology in The Ubyssey. He
definitely proved that the article defies all theory because
the theory is of practice and
practice cannot, because it defies law, be theory.
Therefore, we can all see
the evolution of a moral and
expound with pleasant relief
that theory and practice don't
make sociology.
In conclusion, I must admit that I have come to understand the outlook of sociology
on society and alias to the
world—that of we as men
and women must "keep on
keeping on."

During the campaign he
told a number of students,
should he be elected, he
would make it one of his objectives to see that students
from outside Greater Vancouver should not have to pay
more for a university education than those living in

when UBC asks for money
UBC law graduates are
probably the poorest paid
products of this university—
at least if one goes by the
amount of money they give
to their old Alma Mater.
According   to   figures   released   by   the   UBC   Alumni
would c'office,  only  3.4  per  cent  of
find its publication edifying.
If there is not, The Ubyssey could earn the eternal
affection of all the local intelligentsia by informing the
administration of the fact
that the student body will be
back "en masse' on Monday,
January  6th.

Narrow minds
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Re: student union building.
So some students don't like
the proposed personal $5 increase in AMS fees to save the
general $1.5 million in interest rates. How narrow-minded
can we get?
Students on the average
stay in university four to
five years. Spread over five
years—$25. What a colossal
financial burden. A student
on campus says he wants the
cost spread over more future
students. What utter fallacy!
Students 15 years from now
won't be paying for the SUB,
they'll be paying 15 extra
years in interest rates.
So we don't get the fee increase. So we save $5 a year
($5 is $5, after all). But what
do we lose?
A $1.5 million fund that
could lead to larger things.

Student falls to death
after campus 'blackout'
OTTAWA (CUP) — A University of Ottawa student
has died from injuries sustained when he fell from the
second floor of a university building.
Edward Creed, 24, fell just after a power failure
plunged the campus into darkness.
A witness who saw him fall over a knee-high guard
rail said he appeared to mistake the second floor balcony
for the first floor exit.
Creed, a commerce student, was born in Kent, England and had been in Canada for five years.

Sweeping changes likely
to be swept under rug
The Canadian Universities
foundation faces two big
hurdles in its fight for better
university financing says Sored   MLA  Ralph  Loffmark.
The foundation presented a
brief to the Royal Commission
on Taxation last Wednesday
calling for sweeping changes
in tax and estate laws to
ease financial pressures on
students and universities.
Loffmark said the commission has to accept the principles set out in the brief and
then the government has to
implement them.

a restructuring of the organization along lines more equitable to the French faction.

Professor Loffmark said
that the taxation changes
could have a marked effect
on the financial standing of

"The taxation laws are a
hodge-podge of rules when
applied to university supplies.
Some items are taxable and
others are not for some reason," he said.
"If the recommendations
are accepted it would mean
the university will not have

on taxes paid on certain

Non-aggression pact
needed — peace chief
An East-West non-aggression
pact is necessary to prevent
war over Berlin.
Dr. James Endicott, head of
the Canadian Peace Congress,
told 45 students Tuesday that
a non-aggression treaty between the Warsaw and NATO
pact nations will end the Berlin crisis.
"President Kennedy, General De Gaulle and British Labour Party leader, Harold Wilson, would support a non-
aggression  treaty," he  said.
But several students disagreed during the discussion
that followed.
One said Red China would
not want the agreement. Another doubted West Germany's
willingness to reduce her arms.
"The treaty," said Endicott,
"will contribute toward peaceful co-existence.
"The Nuclear Test Ban
agreement was the first step."
Endicott said demilitarization of the Berlin area will be
possible only after a non-aggression agreement.

In a troupe moulded by as
stern a discipline and backed
by as massive a tradition as the
Bolshoi's, one might expect
in performance a stereotype
form — a lack of individuality among its members. Not a
trace of dusty traditionalism
was evident in Tuesday night's
Highlights programme; the interpreters were as strongly defined as the ballets they danced, and the only dust arose,
shockingly enough, from the
Queen Elizabeth stage.
• • •
Atmosphere there was aplenty — not the result of set or
lighting, but created by dancer
and musician working in close
harmony. The controlled, dynamically musical interpretation of Chopin classic to Peasant Dance, by a tightly-packed
orchestra directed by Georgi
Zhemchuzhin, balanced and interacted superbly with the interpretation on stage. This
complementary union was most
strikingly evident in Chopin-
iana (Les Sylphides), which
opened the programme, and
the Three Moods pas de deux.
The inimitable Fokine choreography of the former left
one breathless — the complex
unifying interludes by the
corps de ballet tied together
the technical display of solo
and pas de deux into a single
lyric whole. Boris Khokhlov
asserted himself so strongly,
however, as to almost overbalance the otherwise female ensemble, particularly in an extraordinarily virile Mazurka;
it took the combined efforts of
Ludmilla Bogomolova, Maya
Samokhvalova, and R a i s s a

yielding, feminine lines of the

Exuberance was the keynote of the folksy Russian
Dance, choreographed narratively by Varkovitsky and
danced dashingly by Larissa
Trembolvelskaya and Nikolai
Simachev in a series of delightfully slapstick situations. The
Scriabin Etude (Three  Moods)
and Minkus Don Quixote selections which separated the two
utilized them as poles of contrast.
Three Moods was presented
with overpowering force by
Lesma Chadarayn and Mikhail
TiMiomirnov. The stark realism and erotic conflict inherent in the piece burst off the
stage at an alarming pace, high-
pitched and almost painfully

followed came as a breath of
fresh air. Gennadi Lediakh was

In three of four exciting minutes, (including encore) Shamil
Yagudin summarized the virile impact of the Russian dan-
ser with Gopak from Taras
Bulba. Uninterrupted vertical
jetes, multiple pirouettes, travelling fouettes, impeccable

screaming for more. This apex
of excitement was extended
even higher in Moszkowski
Waltz — an amazing display
of pyrotechnical elevation by
Struchkova in the completely
secure hands of her husband,
Alexander Lapauri. Here the
combination of warmth and
virtuosity that makes Stuch-

But as the ultimate item of
an otherwise highly-charged
evening, it fell  flat.
Aside from the questionable
benefits of exposing budding
ballet dancers- to the established greats, I could see little purpose in the sketch that was not
better served by the over-
poweringly evident display of
directorial and interpretive
talent  which preceded  it.
Ballet School, with its idealized portrayal of the background and motivations of a
dancer, and the dry, out of
context, essentially meaningless display of basic-to-difficult
technique, was not sufficiently
powerful to detract from the
rest of the programme, — but
did little to add to it.

On Oct. 26 I had the good
fortune to be taken to a now
neglected part of the campus,
the Old Freddy Wood Theatre,
where, surrounded by five-year
old children, I saw a delightful and charming performance
called Carnival in Our Town.
Clearly, this piece (homemade, and with the best of
home-made acting) has, like
the theatre in which it was presented, declined into obscurity.
That this should be so is lamentable.
• •    •
Perhaps   the   organizers   of
Carnival In Our Town made
an initial mistake by advertising their production as a play
for children. But they were at
least being truthful. For the
Carnival, and the play presenter in it, (like "Hamlet" and
"A Midsummer Night's
Dream" it is in the grand tradition of a 'play within a play')
is allegorical, and on one level
•at least is one of genuine appeal to children (which explains the five-year olds), and
to the 'child' that persists in
all adults.
The play is, therefore, genuinely funny and its author,
by drawing from Rabelais,
Butler, Hobbes, Locke, Joyce,
Pinter, to name but a few) introduces an element of satirical comment which adds greatly to the amusement and enhances the general enjoyment
of the piece.
• •    •
Through the atmosphere of
intimate fantasy , the tiny
world of the Old Freddy Wood
becomes in turn two separate
parts of a forest, and then a
mountain palace — and the
subtlety with which the elementary pieces of scenery
alter, radically, the outline of
the stage to effect this, is not
the least part of the magic of
the   play.
Gaiety, mirth, and enthusiasm, all issuing from the stage
and its actors, assaulted the
pensive and oyer wrought
undergraduate mind, quickly
overcame the throne of intellectual melancholy, and released its many tensions .
Carnival attained the grand
idea toward which dramatists
since Sophocles have striven,
to make a play both entertaining and instructive. Further
than that, it was a tonic, as
only laughter could be.

If one goes, expecting to see
"the heart of Paris" revealed
with British sex frankness,
they are going to be somewhat
disillusioned; if they are hoping
for something near "Apartment" standards — well, sad
is the day.
The comedy is basically slapstick, often potholed with
humor cliches, and at times
wincingly tainted with Holly-
woodism. However, the film
for the most part is great entertainment affording many guffaws mostly because the humor
is plausible.
But towards the end "Irma"
begins to loose track of plausibility and resorts to the impossible to tie itself together.
And having done this, it fails
top quality standards. It is left
with the impression that the
screenwriters didn't know
quite how to end it all and just
tied a big, clumsy, loose knot.

This comedy is not universally appealing, as some are,
and those who prefer witticism
(e.g. Alec Guiness types) rather
than physical action are to be

The film adaptation of Chekhov's The Lady with the Dog
succeeded so well in expanding
characterizations and translating the mood into cinematic
terms that it was given the
Cannes Award.
In Chekhov's story there are
only a few snatches of dialogue.
In the film, whole scenes are
inserted and others expanded
in order to develop by dialogue
and gesture what the author
has stated in his terse narration.
•    •    •
It is the expression of Chekhov's mood, however, which
is the outstanding feature of
this film. The mood wth its
gradual change from boredom
to great pathos reflects the
feelings of the central character.
Boredom    is     expressed    in
toneless expanses of space and
in horizontal lines — in the
turgid', washed-out landscapes
of Yalta, the flat seascape and
the long boardwalks along the
shore. It is evident in Moscow,
muffled in a dead white blanket of snow and in the fields of
bleak white tables at "the
• •    •
Passion, on the  other hand,
is expressed by jagged lines
and violent contrasts of tone —
in the plunging view from a
mountain retreat; by the deep
shadows cast by candlelight; in
twilight and early morning;
and in the final scene of the
dramatic silhouette of the
lovers against the window of
their room.
The use of sound is perhaps
even more effective. Boredom
is expressed primarily by the
absence of sound. It is most excruciating when the silence is
emphasised by the magnification of normally unnoticed
sounds. It is also expressed in
monotonous, repetitive sounds
— the ticking of a clock, the
slew lapping of the sea and the
three-note musical theme with
which the film opens.
* •    •
In perfect visual contrast to
the theme (man's inability to
find fulfillment in the moment
or to find happiness in a relationship which transcends it)
is the effervescent little dog
who symbolizes the world of
nature in which such a dichotomy is unknown. Sick with the
excitement of each moment he
is a perfect symbol of eager,
uncomplicated life.

Belated cheers for the Gold-
coast Singers and Carolyn Hester, who conscientiously turned out very professional performances in spite of a small
(it being Tuesday) and somewhat cool audience.
Performers confronted with
small audiences frequently resent the apparent indifference,
thus indicated, of the public
to their art, or worse, fear
as individual artists they have
somehow not met the acceptable local standard.
• •    •
Fortunately, Carolyn Hester
and the Goldcoast singers have
histories of overwhelming public approval behind them, and
are not subject to such anxieties. They play and sing as well
to thirty as to a concert hall
sold out in advance.
This kind of artistic disposition could be born only of
pleasure derived from, and
sincere interest in, folk music
as a medium of entertainment.
This marriage is rare in professional "folksingers" either here

still relatively unknown (unfortunately) composer and arranger, Bill Potts.
He came on the scene in a
big way with his arrangement
of the score of Porgy and Bess.
His arrangement was released originally in a limited edition on the United Artists label
in 1959. I think it is the best
big band arrangement of the
score that has ever been done.
Combining a nineteen piece
band and his truly original
style, he created swinging and
beautiful sounds of the first
- By the way, this was the
first time he had ever worked
on another composer's works.
Up to then, he had restricted
himself strictly to his own original compositions.
Potts recorded the songs of
the score in the order Gershwin originally wrote them, "to
preserve the feeling of the
opera". And the excitement is
there, from SummeTlime
through to Oh Lawd. I'm On
My Way.
•    •    •
And don't buy the stereo
version that was re-released
recently. The album was made
into a stereo-effect record
(more or less), and it was ruined. Buy the score in monaural,
if you do get it, and in the
original if possible.
The second arrangement I
referred to was Potts' recently
released version of the score of
Bye Bye Birdie. This time it's
only an eleven piece band, but
none of Potts' excitement is
'missing. There's only one ballad on the whole album—Talk
to Me. The rest of the tracks
swing. Very much. The arrangement of Kids in itself
makes the album worth buying.
Other tracks worth mentioning
are How Lovely lo Be A
Woman, Lolla Livin' To Do,
and One Boy.
Potts picked his musicians
especially to play the solos he
wrote into the arrangements.
Each solo was written with a
particular musician in mind.
The album is on the United
Artists label. It deserves hearing.
I hope Potts turns out many
more like it.

The Wall, written by Millard
Lampell, adapted from the novel by John Hersey, is now all
systems GO at the Jewish Community Centre.
This story of the Warsaw
ghetto resistance movement is
told by a group composed
mainly of amateurs. It is a folk
drama and the mood's the
thing. Rjealism is what Dorothy Davies, the directress,
aimed at, and what I think
she has attained.
I have a part in the play so
perhaps my opinion of it will
be prejudiced. But I saw it
grow from such a mish-mash to
a real production that I don't
feel guilty about advising you
to see it.

Any Jew discovered leaving

the Nazis began deporting them
to 'work camps'. It wasn't until they were practically all
gone that they faced the truth

They carried on usual family
quarrels, loved, married and
lived much as other people always have. But they did all
these things intensely because
of the pressures on them and
because their days were numbered.

There are the usual characters; Shpunt the peddlar, Reb
Mazur the Rabbi with his beard
and black coat, and Katz—the
young fellow with guts, and
brains enough to see what was
happening to them.
I heard that some people left
during the first scene because
they "couldn't take it".
This means we got the message across — there's not much
more a play can do.
It can be seen Saturday and
Sunday nights at 8:30 at the
new Jewish Community Center
and tickets can be purchased
there. Better call and reserve

almost sold out.

The Company's operations are highly diversified. Thus,
men are exposed to varied sets of business problems in
such diverse fields as nuclear reactors, heavy apparatus
for industry, electronic equipment and appliances for
the home.
The Company's organization is decentralized into product
business departments. This brings men from finance,
engineering, marketing and manufacturing into close
daily association for business planning and decisionmaking, increases knowledge and understanding of all
functions of the business.
Rotating assignments are combined with graduate seminar
classes. A variety of initial finance-oriented on-the-job
assignments in several product business departments
and graduate-level seminar courses provide a solid
grounding in many areas of business operation.
There are continuing opportunities for professional development. The opportunity to continue throughout a
career to move not only across functions, but also
between product business departments, assures varied

What does a Brock Proctor do when he's not proc-
If the proctor is like Leo
Kelsey he would spend' most
of his spare time in the
Thunderbird Sports Centre
—'teaching eight-year-olds to
play hockey.
And that's exactly what
Kelsey does.
He's responsible for the
hockey training of almost 40
Point Grey- youngsters between the ages of 8-12 years.
And he has his problems.
"Most of the fellows we
get are not good skaters,"
Kelsey says.
• •    •
"But that is not necessarily a liability.
"When we get them this
young, they're easier to
teach, they learn faster, and
we dbn't have to correct bad
skating habits before we
start to teach them good
ones," he says.
Kelsey himself has had a
colorful hockey career.
He played with Baltimore
of the old Eastern Amateur
league, which at that time
was in one of the top leagues
in the East.
• *    •
During the war he played
with the Laura Saskatchewan Beavers, where he
teamed with some of the
greatest players, including
hockey's "dipsy - doodle
dandy" and former Toronto
Maple Leaf, Max Bently.
"We had Johnny Bower,
the same one now with the
Leafs, as our goal-keeper
during the last part of the
Beavers' season."
The Beavers won the
Western Canadian championship that year.
Kelsey doesn't have to do
the coaching job entirely
"We've got enough, coaches
working with us now to
make a good job possible.
"A few RCMP officers
help us, some university
staff members and one student.
"We always have at least
four coaches on the ice each

The minor league has
rented ice-time at the Thunderbird Arena, Saturday,
from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
It has an option on an additional hour.
"If we get any more kids
out we'll pick up the option," Kelsey says.
"We can take as many
kids as we can get."
Do doting parents give
him any trouble?   ;
"Not really," says Kelsey.
"From time to time we get
some youngster who tells us
his mother wants him to
play on the same team or
line as his brother, for some
unknown reason.
"If we can swing it, we
do, if not we're not too worried* about it.
*    •    *
"One   of   the   objects   of
teaching kids to play hockey
is to teach them team play,
sportsmanship   and self-reli
ance. To do this we just
can't have too much parental interference.
"But this doesn't mean we
refuse a father's help if he
offers it. We'll need quite a
few time-keepers and scorers when the four teams get
going next week."
•    •    •
Who pays the cost of running the league?
"The kids themselves," Kelsey says.
"Each one is charged $15
for the season. This includes
the cost of ice rental and
uniforms for the four teams.
"Each player must supply
his own personal equipment
and each must wear a helmet. All players and
coaches are insured when
they are on the ice.
"We also supply goalkeepers' equipment.
"We're not affiliated with
any minor hockey association this year, but next year,
if all goes well, we will be.
"Our ultimate plan is to
provide hockey coaching and
experience up to the junior
level," Kelsey says.

no mistake, the crowds at
these games were students.
This year the calibre of the
team is high with many of
last year's stars still around.

him: Mickey McDowell, Terry

Powell River Regals
Thunderbird pucksters play the Powell River Regals
in Powell River, this Saturday.
The Regals are expected to be top contenders in the B.C.

this game to be a yardstick for the year's performance.
Last year's edition of the T'Bird hockey team split
their four matches with Powell River.
Coach Selder is taking only 18 players on the trip as
he wants to get a closer look at them.
In two games the Birds have scored 18 goals, led by
the top line of Peter Kelly, Ken Cairns and Ralph Lortie.
Coach Selder expects "great things" from this line
and also was pleased with the work of his second line
composed of Bob Parker, Dave Morris and Stu Gibbs.

Bird's first injury of the season and will be out for 10 days.

. . . cultural void
Canada should set up a network of cultural attaches
abroad, according to a UBC
Dr. Earle Birney, chairman
of the creative writing department and one of Canada's best
known novelists and poets,
made the suggestion after a six
month visit to Mexico, South
America and the West Indies.
•    •    •
Canada, he said, has no cultural attaches abroad and so
there are only limited opportunities for people to learn
about  Canadian culture.
There is no reason why cultural information should not
be available, he said, since
there is a ready made communication network in Canadian embassies.
The Canada Council, Birney
said, made the first move to
fill the  cultural void.
•    *    •
He suggested Canada exchange writers and artists with
the areas he visited.
Dr. Birney toured Mexico,
Louisiana, Peru, Chile, Trinidad and Jamaica, and gave
nearly 40 lectures and poetry

QUEBEC (CUP)—Three-way
separatism almost scuttled a
World University Service of
Canada seminar.
The seminar was to be held
in Chile, with Spanish as the
working  language.
But French and English
delegates at a recent Quebec
conference objected.
They decided the working
languages would be English,
French  and Spanish.
Race writing
ban lifted
—A ban on writing about
race relations to the University of Alabama has been
lifted from the student newspaper.
Last month Mel Meyer,
editor of the Crimson-White,
was silenced by the oath he
said he was forced to sign.
The ban still applies to
other students.
South African police raid
national student offices

Security Police members raided the offices of the National
Union of South African Students (NUSAS) two weeks ago.

The officers carried search
warrants which authorized
them to look at any material
in the office and to search the

The recent raid on the
NUSAS office is part of the
continuing attack of the South
African government on NUSAS
for their anti-apartheid declarations. Jonty Driver, NUSAS
president and several other
staff members were present
during  the   raid.
Eight documents were removed  and  included  material
such as an analysis of Communist front youth organizations, resolutions of 7th International Union of Students
(IUS) Congress and an analysis
of Communist attitude on religion.
Driver, issued a statement to
The Cape Times, which in part
"There is no point in getting
hysterical about this raid. Mr.
Vorster (Min. of Justice) tried
to damage NUSAS by using inaccurate information. He has
obviously failed. In an attempt
to get damaging information,

The Canadian Union of Students are expected to forward
a cable of support to NUSAS.
Drug problem hits Yale,
unlocks hallucinations
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CPS-CUP)—The use of hallucination-producing drugs has spread to Yale University,
acocrding to the Yale Daily News.
Several students have suffered borderline psychoses
from the drugs mescaline and psilocybin. At Harvard,
assistant professor of Clinical Psychology, Richard Alpert,
was dismissed for administering the two drugs to undergraduates last spring. The use of mescaline, however, had
not been previously reported: at Yale.
How Canadian Nickel is helping to bring Paris closer to Rome
The world's longest vehicular tunnel is one of the greatest engineering feats in Western Europe. When completed, it will shorten
the road distance between Paris and Rome by 125 miles. And Canadian nickel is playing its role in this great project. Alloy steels
containing nickel are providing strength to the massive bits and extension rods for the semi-automatic drills. Dependable nickel-
containing steels were selected for the axles, wheels and bearings of the mining cars used to haul away rock; and, because of its
ability to withstand very severe working conditions, nickel-chromium steel was used extensively in the mammoth 'Jumbo' mobile
drilling rig. The growth of nickel markets at home and abroad helps strengthen Canada's economy and provide jobs for Canadians.
