seals off
the girls
Oakalla could learn a lesson
from the security system of
the new Totem Park Girls'
Dorm.
Except for armed guards,
every possible security measure has been taken to make
sure the girls do not creep out,
or  the men  in.
Workmen are at present installing high barred gates in
each opening of the eight-foot-
high wall.
Spotlights illuminate every
dark corner, both inside and
outside.
Between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m.
all doors are connected to a
burglar alarm system so that
anyone leaving the building, or
entering it without first signing in sets off alarms all over
the building, awakening all
200 girls.
A girl returning from a date
must come in through the common block and sign in with
the night porter.
Then she and her date walk
over to her dormitory, being
careful to say their goodnights
in whispers, as there is an
intercom (affectionately called
the "buzzer-box" by resident
students) which picks up every
word for the benefit of the
porter and anyone who happens to be within a few feet
of his desk.
When she is ready to go in,
she tells the buzzer box, and
a buzzer sounds.
She now has exactly four
seconds to open the door, get
in and shut the door.
If she takes even half a second too long the alarm goes
off.
Windows in the dorm open
only a few inches at top or
bottom. It would be impossible
to squeeze in or out of them.
Ominous sign admonishes Totem Park girls
'Spare students
green grad profs'
Get the- graduate student
who can't teach out of the first
year classroom.
And teach him how to teach
before he gets back in.
These are recommendations
of the president's committee
report on academic goals.
"Inexperienced graduate students, or teachers who lack
skill in communicating to
undergraduates, should not be
assigned to teaching first year,"
the report said.
The report further realized
that "all faculty are not equal
ly expert at fulfilling all functions."
This means that some profs
would be better off teaching
and others should primarily do
research.
The report also advocates
that each department initiate
procedures to teach lecturers
how to teach.

system, no Christmas exams,
fewer lectures and other diversified changes. The 67-
page document took a year to
prepare.
The committee was made
up of UBC president Dr. John
Macdonald and eight assistants.
The major recommendations are:
Abolition of Christmas exams and generally less reliance on examinations.
Letter grades and ranking
by position in class to replace
exam  marks.
Development of UBC endowment lands into a university
community with bookstores
and other student services.
Limitation of UBC's enrolment to 22,000 by 1973 with
5,500 professional and graduate students.
Three-term year
A three-term-year, not strictly a trimester system, but with
an autumn and spring term in
addition to an experimental
summer term.
A full-scale trial of college
entrance exams (similar to
those in the U.S.) and higher
entrance standards for students
coming to the university from
Grade  13.
Two basic undergraduate
programs with a diversity of
programs but less choice of
electives. These programs
would replace the present unit
system of credit.
A four-year Arts or Science
degree required before entering professional schools.
Abolition of the present registration system and institution
of a more time-saving system.
Individual study
More emphasis on individual and group study, as opposed to the lecture system.
Special residence provisions
for graduates and married students and a liberalizing of the
rules in undergraduate residences.
Expansion of spaces on campus for study and more small
units where students can enjoy informal discussion.
Vast expansion of the library and computer centre.
Closer study of relationships between secondary school
and university performances.
President Macdonald emphasized, in a forward to the
report, that no target date or
timetables had been set for implementation of the recommendations.

Abolish Christmas exams!

system!
A dream?
Not according to the president's report on the goals of
higher education.
The report calls for the substitution of a departmental evaluation of the student's progress at the end of the first
term, with all examinations at
the end of the year.
And it calls for letter grades
coupled with the rank order of
the student within the course.
The present grade system,
says the report, cannot equalize
marks between students in fine
arts, where the answers are
subjective; and mathematics,
where a perfect paper is possible.
'University
should have
its own city
The university administration should promote a university city on the endowment
lands.
The president's committee
says the university administration should zone the endowment lands so that good book
stores, art galleries, coffee
shops and discussion centres
can be built adjacent to the
academic buildings.
The report says about 80
per cent of UBC students commute because there are no
facilities to keep them on
campus.

Delegates to Frosh Retreat are being blamed for

McAfee opposed
Council revolt follows
charges of 'railroading'
ROGER McAFEE
. no railroading
'Councillors
should rap
themselves
AMS president Roger McAfee Wednesday blasted student councillors' charges of
railroading levelled against
himself and the AMS executive.
"If the councillors have any
complaints to make, they
should be complaining about
themselves," McAfee said.
Undergraduate society presidents have charged they are being railroaded at council meetings.
They said there is neither
enough information presented
nor enough discussion time for
important matters.
McAfee branded the charges
ridiculous.
"Councillors themselves are
derelict in this duty if they
want time for further study
and don't ask for it," he said.
Undergraduate society presidents have formed their own
organization and AMS president Roger McAfee said it
could become a front dedicated to opposing AMS executive
actions.
Engineering president Steve
Whitelaw, who proposed the
presidents' organization several weeks ago said the abolition
of Undergraduate Societies
Committee last year has removed any forum where inter-
faculty events can be discussed
and co-ordinated.
He proposed undergraduate
society presidents meet in the
half-hour before regular council meetings to clear up such
matters.
The first meeting of this
group was Monday night.
After electing Pharmacy
president Larry Krause chairman, the undergrad presidents discussed actions that
should  concern  their group.
"I'm tired of getting snowed
by the executive," said Education president Dave Lynn.
"Perhaps we can do some
railroading ourselves from
now on."
Other councillors agreed a
united front might be a good
idea.
Besides formulating philso-
phy, presidents discussed the
possibility of setting up a permanent ombudsman or grievance committee to preserve
student rights. Most felt activities of this type were now being carried out successfully by
undergrad presidents and the
proposal was dropped.
Matters concerning publicity
for homecoming queen were
also mentioned.
McAfee, however, disagreed
with the idea of a separate section of council getting together
before the regular meeting.
"I don't like the idea of a
formalized division between
undergrad presidents and the
executive," he said.
"No matter concerning undergrad societies is too trivial
to be covered at council."

A student council revolt
which has been brewing for
weeks has at last come out into the open.
Undergraduate society presidents, which make up 20 of the
26 places on council, say they
are tired of being railroaded
by president Roger McAfee.
They claim they do not get
enough time to study the legislation they pass, and executive-

Al Birnie examines events

"revolt".
controlled confusion lets student council meetings become
a rubber-stamping grounds for
McAfee's pet projects.
The match that touched off
the explosion was an unsigned
letter by secretary Marilyn
McMeans published in The
Ubyssey last week, in which
she classified herself as one of
the sheep in McAfee's flock.
Councillors are up in arms—
they agree in principle with
fhe letter, and starting now
they are going to do something.
Among other things, they are
meeting separately before the
regular meeting.
"We want to be prepared to
do a little railroading of our
own," explained Education
president Dave Lynn.
McAfee is in a large measure
to blame for the eruption, but
for the reason of not enough
leading, rather than too much.
McAfee has proved himself
a tremendous organizer and
planner, even if he has failed
as a leader.
For what is the job of a
president, if not to "railroad".
Railroading, defined as political manoeuvering from
above, is an integral part of any
government. But the anguished
cries from the lesser regions of
council are living proof McAfee
is no politician.
What is a president for if he
is not someone who, after
choosing the courses he plans
to follow, (remember, the students elected him to run their
government), manoeuvres them
through council for approval.
McAfee has been unable to
get through to council because
of deliberately obscure presentation — some almost double-
dealing. The last CUS proposal
a prime example.
And instead of rolling with
the punches and taking council's present demands with a
grain of salt, McAfee is making
more enemies than ever before
by not co-operating.
He is doing his best to preserve his good name, which
may look good in the press, but
the election is over, Roger. The
people you should be trying to
impress now are the people
who hold the veto over you—
vour council.

fat, happy
says
Jack
By   DONNA   PIRHIE
Are you fat and affluent? Jack Webster
thinks you are.
He was speaking to a
capacity crowd in Brock
Hall at noon, in a debate
on the charge university
students are poor.
He stated the student
was poor mentally but not
materially and described
a B.A. as a soft degree.
Dr. Malcolm MacGreg-
or, Webster's original debate partner, spoke of discipline way back when.
"We used to walk to university. Now I know a student with a wife in every
Camp and a federal loan."
Jack Wasserman, columnist for a downtown
paper pointed to the affluence shown in the
lounge where students sat
around and ate lunch.
"But students are human capital to be invested
in," claimed Wasserman's
partner,  Peter Hyndman.
Dr MacGregor at this
point announced: "I'm
going to change sides."
MacGregor said that
downtown doesn't pay attention to UBC's needs
and importance.
Wasserman shouted: "Is
that why they closed the
Georgia Pub?"
Faculty, courses studied
Chop lectures to minimum
asks presidents committee
The president's committee wants to reduce lectures to
an effective minimum and use other instruction methods
more frequently.
Variations from the pattern of three lectures a week
for three credits are discouraged by the complexity of
timetables and the reluctance of profs, the report says.
The report insists any reduction in lectures be replaced
by other teaching methods—independent research, study,
discussion and problem sessions.
It says fewer lectures would result in increased intensity of study.
73 week terms
Trimester year
goal of report
UBC will have a modified
dent's committee on academic
The report says the academic year should be divided
into three 13-week terms —
one each in the fall, spring and
summer.
But unlike normal trimester
systems, in which students
can enter at the beginning of
each semester, students would
be able to start courses only
in the fall or summer terms.
The report says courses beginning in the fall would run
for two terms.
Summer courses would start
in May and run just 13 weeks.
Most students would be limited to taking two courses over
this period.
The report suggests students should be allowed to take
courses leading to their degrees during the summers and
thus graduate in less than
four years.
It notes that the present six-
week summer session is attended mainly by teachers
seeking additional training.
It suggests that because these
teachers cannot start school in
May for the normal summer
term, that the present summer
session  be retained for  them.
The report says the new
system would require faculty
members to teach four out of
every six terms, but not more
than three terms in a row.
If a faculty member teaches
three consecutive terms, he
would be free of teaching
duties for the next two terms
although remaining on full
salary.

Residences urged
for all students
The president's committee
on academic goals wants to
make UBC a residential university.
The committee's report recommends that the university build enough residences
to accommodate all students.
More than 80 per cent of
UBC students now commute.
The report says that graduate students should be given
residences separate from
undergraduates.

UBC must increase its graduate facilities four-fold in the
next decade, says the president's committee report on academic goals.
It  also   suggests  the department   of   university   extension
be replaced by a department of
continuing education.
EXTENDED PROGRAMS
The report further states
UBC must find the funds for
extended research programs
where graduate studies are offered.
The report's section on graduate  work, research  and   continuing education  recommends
that UBC:
ORDERLY EXPANSION
• Provide faculty and facilities
for considerable but orderly
graduate program expansion;
• Seek funds to permit grad
uate students to continue their
programs throughout the year;
• Actively support research
programs in all disciplines offering graduate work;
• Seek funds for the appointment of distinguished professors to initiate new research
and foster creative work;
• Devise an organization to
seek public funds to support
fundamental research in fields
where present aid is insufficient;

goals for the university and to
seek ways of achieving them,"
Macdonald said.
"Nevertheless, at the time
of writing, the document does
not represent an official position of the university, or even
a consensus of faculty opinion.
"The document and recommendations will be considered
by various governing bodies
of the university, and to the
extent that they are accepted,
its recommendations will be
implemented.
• •    •
"The university is aware of
its new role . . . within the
province of British Columbia
—that of a comprehensive university — offering an undergraduate education and bearing almost the sole responsibility for graduate and professional education and for much
of the research on which our
future welfare depends," he
said.
• *    •
The committee which prepared the report included: Dr.
C. S. Belshaw, professor of
anthropology and sociology;
Dr. S. N. F. Chant, Dean Emit-
erus, Arts and Science; Dr.
John Chapman, UBC director
of academic planning; Dr. Donald Copp, professor and head,
department of physiology; Dr.
Kenneth Mann, professor of
physics; Dr. John Norris, professor of history; Dr. Robert
Scagel, professor of biology
and botany and Eric Nicol,
Vancouver columnist and member of the Senate.
•
Building
boom seen
A plan of vast expansion of
the university from the Senate
to the library and computing
centre, has been recommended
by the presidents' committee
report.
The report recommends:
• Establishment of a Senate standing committee on academic affairs and a faculty
planning committee to advise
the Senate on UBC's curriculum quality and development,
and to assist in assigning academic  priorities and balances;
• Continued high priority
be given to library expansion
and improvement;
• UBC's computing centre
be organized along the lines of
the library, expanded and connected by teletype to major
campus research centres;
• Provision of more secretarial and executive assistance
to facilitate UBC's academic
function.
In stressing the priority to
be given the library, the report suggests decentralization
through addition of library
branches close to separate academic departments, more special collections such as the
Woodward bio-medical library,
and departmental reading
rooms.
It also calls for an inter-
library lending system facilitated by Telex communication.

UBC's courage
The president's committee report on academic goals
is a study in courage.
It takes courage for a university-the size of UBC to
look deeply inward and decide that perhaps it is going
in the wrong direction.
It takes courage to suggest reforming UBC's already
supposedly adequate academic system.
It takes courage to suggest positive action which, as
the report points out, is sure to seem controversial to
some and platitudinous to others.
The academic report shows that UBC is a leader
among universities, as did the Macdonald report of 1963.
It also states that the university is more concerned
about the student than it is about running its own administrative bureaucracy.
At times, the student feels the place would run better
if he were not here to bend, mutilate and staple the system which is supposed to educate him.
But the president's report says this is not true.
The president's report makes an assumption few
North American universities are prepared to make: that
students are self-reliant and mature.
It deplores the fact that many students arrive at UBC
with the impression that university is merely an extension of high schooling.
It suggests the student should be imbued with a spirit
of inquiry and creativity as well as developing his evaluative judgment.
And it suggests methods for doing this in remarkably
frank fashion.
The product, the report says, should be able to take
his place in society and make a contribution—with a
well-enough rounded education not to be an automaton.
We said it before and we will say it again—it takes
courage to make this type of a report.
We hope the proposals of the report will be considered, not only by members of the university community
but by those outside also.
And, we hope, that if the various governing bodies of
the university decide to implement some or all of the
reforms, the cash necessary will be found.
A quote from the section on graduate work sums up
our hopes that costs will not prevent action.
"Reluctance to meet these costs on grounds that other
universities elsewhere in Canada or the world should
shoulder the responsibility cannot be contemplated."

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Housing confusion
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Perhaps Housing could
clear up a matter that has
been puzzling me for some
time: why are there empty
rooms in the Women's West
Wing of Totem Park?
Surely the demand for on-
campus accommodation could
not be that great if these
rooms are allowed to go unoccupied.
Another question that is
beyond my comprehension:
Why doesn't Housing move
girls who have been waiting
anxiously for almost two
months to  get into the East
Wing into  the empty rooms
of the West Wing?
Maybe there are no girls
waiting anxiously to get into
the East Wing! Maybe the
need for residences is a big
myth!

Red Feather and Commie collectivism
Of course it isn't nice to attack the Red Feather campaign just when it is being
rammed home. Officialdom
has let it be known that it is
only gentlemanly to refrain
from talking until nobody is
listening. Therefore I have
held this column until the annual wave of tin-can-shaking
commercemen has passed over
us again for the annum.
It is entirely appropriate
that Commerce is supplying
the collectors of UBC alms.
After all, isn't it the Canadian
Chamber of Commerce which
says social welfare programs
are dangerous? Destroys the
incentive   doesn't   it?   Under
mines our Christian Way of
Enterprise, doling out enough
money to widows so they can
buy holes for their children's
shoes.
The Chamber of Commerce,
the Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Boards of Trade
and the Vancouver Province
have consistently and courageously taken a stand against
Social Welfare programs.
That is precisely why they so
strongly support the Red
Feather.
For one thing, the Red
Feather contributes to a commendable inefficiency and
confusion through supporting
a    myriad    of   organizations
v/hose    jurisdictions    overlap
and conflict.
It has the additional virtue
of preventing any responsible
agency from making a systematic analysis of what is needed
in the field of social welfare,
who should do it, and how.
But what is most important,
it doesn't sap the enterprise
morale of big businesses by
taxing them.
When the commerce boys
graduate one of their annual
projects will be blackmailing
their employees into making
contributions according to
some scale laid down by someone in no way responsible to
public accounting.
When the money has been
collected, it will be announced
that the employees of Such-
and-such Corporation have
made a generous donation to
the tune of so many dollars.
Good public relations.
Keeps up the old company image. And all that without being taxed according to any
consistent formula worked out
to take into account who has
how much to give. It's the old
Free American Christian
Way.
The beauty of Red Feather
campaigns is that they allow
uncharitable people like myself to make a point of never
giving a red cent. Red Feather saves us from communistic
collectivism, that's what.
couver Union of Musicians
opposes free performances.
This union wants us to pay
a union band for not playing
if we hear the RCE band's
free performance.
We do not want to hear a
union band concert, we want
to hear the RCE band concert.
Can any unionist show me
the social advantage of paying for something that is
free? BRAZZO

NEW YORK—Amid the national upsurge of political
feeling New York appears to
be oblivious to the campaign
going on about it.
In Midtown Manhattan, the
only clues to the fact there are
two important elections due
within a month are the campaign posters on construction
site fences.

There are no demonstrations, bands, or any of the
other trappings normally associated with American elections.
Even campaign buttons are
few and far between.

Johnson arrived in the city
Wednesday, there was no presidential motorcade and few of
the news media gave him
more than a brief front-page
nod.

Johnson did get a  rousing
reception as he passed through
Harlem, New York's Negro
ghetto, on his way to the Waldorf Astoria.

the posters on the streets support Johnson and Humphrey.
Less than one-tenth are Republican.
PRESIDENT JOHNSON
. . . polite nods
Then there is the race for
the vacant New York Senate
seat 'between former Attorney-
General Robert Kennedy and
Republican Stuart Keating.
New Yorkers are as un-
enthusiastic here as for the
presidential campaign.
• •    •
Many of the democratic
posters include Kennedy
along with Johnson and
Humphrey.
A large banner, the only
one I've seen, strung across
Seventh Avenue, urges voters
to "Keep America moving forward. Elect John Humphrey
Kennedy."
• •    •
The comparatively strong
support for the democratic
candidates in New York is
surprising since the state's
other senator and its governor,
Nelson Rockefeller, are both
Republican.
But  many  experts  believe
Keating will beat Kennedy
in the senate race.
Dr. James T. Crown, professor of political science at
New York University, said at
a meeting Tuesday that most
moderate Republicans would
vote for Keating, a native
New Yorker.
The New York Times,
which supports Johnson in
the presidential campaign, has
backed Keating in the Senate race.
• •    •
In spite of the pro-Democratic feeling in the city,
many people I spoke to feel
Goldwater will beat Johnson.
"Goldwater's going to win,
and that will surprise a lot of
people," one Goldwater supporter told me. "He may not
win in New York City, but
in the rest of the state, he's
got good backing."
• •    •
One Connecticut businessman said Goldwater would
count heavily in California
and other western states.
There seems to be doubt
about Goldwater's mental stability. One New York magazine recently published a report that several psychiatrists
have judged him unfit to be
president.
• •    •
Professor Crown, a Democrat, said Goldwater is sane.
"Goldwater isn't a nut. But
his supporters are," he said.
The Goldwater supporter,
on the other hand said: "Yes,
he's a nut. But he's a special
kind of nut; the kind of nut
who'll tell the Communists
where America stands."
But where America stands
at present is something of a
mystery—until November 4.
K outstanding
as world leader'
Former external affairs minister Howard Greene paid
tribute Wednesday to ousted Soviet premier Nikita
Khrushchev as an outstanding world leader.
He said Khrushchev had de
voted much of his time to
working for world co-operation.
"I see this adverse criticism
of him now as a bad sign,"
he told a meeting of UBC's
United Nations  club.
Hotter horn for
Gabriel advised
TORONTO (CUP) — Try
jazz to jazz up the declining
interest of people at church
services.
This is the advice of United Church minister Don
Gillies.
"I   feel   that   the   church
service   lacks  a  sense   of  relevance to the modern world,"
he said.
Jazz transcends race, creed
and color, which is more
than the church is doing, he
said.
Greene, for many years
Vancouver-Quadra MP, was
defeated when the Liberals
took power in Ottawa.
He gave the United States
full credit for keeping the UN
afloat. "If they ever withdraw
this support the UN will probably fall apart."
He also lamented the adjournment of the Geneva disarmament  conference.
"Little progress was made,"
he said. "But as more countries
acquire nuclear weapons, the
world will be out of control."
Greene suggested that smaller countries will play an increasingly essential role in
keeping world peace.
He gave as an example the
UN Congo emergency force:
"These smaller countries —
Canada, India and the Scandinavian nations — are most important. The bigger countries
get into fights."

Students given
too much choice'
The report of the president's committee on academic goals
says that in some faculties students are given  too much
freedom in the choosing of their courses.
It   says    that    as    a    result
says    that    as    a
choices in some cases are being   made    on    considerations
other than   the  student's   academic goals.
TWO PROGRAMS
The committee calls for the
establishment of two basic
undergraduate programs to
avoid this.
It suggests a general program in which the aim would
be a broad education with
little specialization and a selected program in which the
aim would be specialization
with little general education.
"The present wide diversification of offerings abets
assembling courses and majors
of such disparate strands that
the notion of a central discipline is lost," the report says.
ORDERLY GROWTH
"Constructive flexibility is
not fashioned by a totally free
elective system but rather by
the design of programs of study
to shape the orderly, continuing intellectual growth of the
student and ensure his fullest
benefit from undergraduate
education."
The report does not name the
faculties which it feels give
too much freedom.
Within both programs students would be allowed to decide whether to take honors
or comprehensive courses.
The report says that the curriculum   in   each   of  the   pro
grams would be made up in
varying degrees with courses
of the selected discipline, allied
disciplines and general education.
The committee suggests that
no student take fewer than
five of the general education
courses over his four-year
course.
EDUCATION COURSE
It suggests the general education courses be made up of
subjects such as general
science, history, philosophy
and social sciences courses.
The committee suggests that
under the new system, the
unit-system for denoting the
value of courses no longer be
used.
BOOST
(Continued from Page 3)
• Allocate funds to various departments specifically for initiating programs of continuing
education for university credit.
The report places the responsibility for graduate expansion squarely on the university and insists the quantity of
graduates is not as important
as quality.
It calls for redefinition of
work done in all fields, to ensure that the program meets
UBC's objectives in terms of
current and future needs.
'Hike standards
for Freshmen'
If the President's committee
has its way it will be much
harder to get into UBC.
And once a student enters he
will be more likely to stay for
post-graduate work than at
present.
The committee's report report recommends the adoption
Df entrance exams in order to
weed out students unfit for university work.
It also recommends that regulations governing re-admission
of students who fail first year
be made more stringent.
And it suggests that Students
entering from senior matric be
required to have a 60 per cent
average and a clear pass.
These steps are recommended in order to raise the stand
ard of the university and promote the post-graduate program.
By 1973 the committee forecasts a combined graduate
studies and post bachelor professional enrolment of 5,500
which would be 25 per cent of
the total enrolment of the university.
The committee contends that
the only way that a successful
enlargement of the province's
education system can occur is
by greatly increasing the number of students graduating
from post graduate studies.
The committee recommends
that UBC's enrolment be cut off
at 22,000 with 5,500 graduate
students and 16,500 undergraduates.
Liberal course urged
for students  first years
The president's committee on academic goals is op^
posed to specialization by students at early stages of their
university education.
In its report the committee says specialization at the
first year level of university should be resisted.
It suggests that in first year the student take such a
general program he should be able to go ino either arts or
science at the end of it.
In the second year, he should enter his chosen area of
interest taking general courses. In the third year he should
focus on a particular field and in the fourth commit himself to a specialty within the field.  At IBM the

The union said the AMS had
to hire a standby band made
up of union members paid at
union wages.
The Engineers band had
agreed to play for free.
But the union did not ask
for a standby band when the
UBC Pep Band played at the

earlier.
Nor did they insist on a

They wanted a standby band
at the Homecoming football

down when the AMS hired
four union bands for the

AROUND
THE
CAMPUS
By ED CLARK
In case you haven't heard,
the Moscow Lions gave Nik-
ita his unconditional release,
the Yanks gave the Cards the
World Series and two UBC
Rowers gave Canada her only
gold medal in the Tokyo
Olympics.
The Cinderella kids from the
Thunderbird campus, Roger
Jackson and George Hungerford, showed the world that the
east-west combination was best
as they rowed to an unbelievable first place finish in the
coxless pairs title.
Jackson, a fourth year
Science student, who hails
from me eastern city called
Toronto teamed with his homebred western counter-part
George Hungerford, Arts III, to
provide the biggest upset since
Cassius beat the Big Bear.
• •    •
All hopes for a Canadian
medal in Rowing were supposedly sunk when the Eight-Oared crew from UBC was beaten
in their first race. When the
Europeans took a look at what
Canada had to offer in the coxless title competition they looked for a sure medal.
Netherlands became the favorite to sweep the title but the
weight of the medal in their
minds became too heavy when
Hungerford and Jackson—rowing for the first time together
—took the lead early and never
looked back at the spray behind.
'Twas an astonishing victory
for the kids and the campus,
and I am sure that they would
appreciate a reception when
they arrive this Sunday morn-
ing in the wee hours at six.
Most students won't have
any problems rising from their
sheets as more than likely
partying and such will still be
rambling on far past this early
hour when the rowers crow.
• *    •
Since this is a week of recognition let us not forget the
remarkable feat of Harry "the
Jet" Jerome.
The Oregon and former
•North Vancouver High star
wrote one of the greatest stories that can be accredited a
track and field star, a story
with a comeback headline.
After the treatment Jerome
received from the press and
public, following his dismal
showing in Perth and Rome
due to injuries, any ordinary
human would have packed his
bags and quit or settled in a
far-off institution. But Jerome
isn't human, he's super-human
to have made such a dramatic
ending to his Tokyo appearance.
There is only one way to explain his comeback; through
guts, determination and pride.
• •    •
The Thunderbirds beat the
University of San Francisco
Saturday last but they weren't
beaten in attendance.
Approximately 800 students
saw the game. Looking at this
figure one would presume that
the spirit is similar to UBC's.
However, the total number
of students attending this small
campus is 3,700. Consequently,
this figures out to about 25
per cent that saw the game.
About 23 per cent more than
UBC will ever get.
THAT CLASSIC FORM belongs to one of the 1000 co-eds
participating in women's intramurals. The sport, of course,
is volleyball, being played at noon hours in the women's
gymn. Our photographer claims no one would give him

But we are happy to see that at least some of the weaker

Preps big show
for Special Events
The Special Events Committee has a full program lined
up for the winter.
The Conservative party lost
power in Britain because of the
party's nepotism and 19th century ideas, the research director of the B.C. Federation of
Labor, said here Wednesday.
Clive Lytle, member of the
provincial executive of the
New Democratic Party, who
has just returned from a six-
month trip to Britain on a Nuffield Foundation fellowship,
spoke in Bu. 202 at noon.
• •    •
"The Conservative government was under fire from
business and right wing papers
for conditions within the party
and the country's economy,"
he said.
"One of the reasons there
wasn't a greater Labor victory
was the great deal of public uncertainty about a Labor government," said Lytle who studied the British trade union
movement on his trip.
• •    •
"This uncertainty was fostered by the nationalization-fearing steel industry, which spent
millions of pounds advertising
criticism  of the Labor  party."
Lytle described Prime Minister Harold Wilson as a cold,
tough, practical man with no
political charm and who will
make his own decisions.
On the racial question in
Britain, Lytle said: "In ten
constituencies the Labor stand
for    colored    immigration    to
Britain and integration helped
defeat the Labor candidates."
He believes that the Labor
government, with its slim majority of four seats, will be able
to stay in power for only one
or two years.

Macdonald
vetoes
dance bar
The Alma Mater Society has
been refused permission to operate a bar at the Homecoming dances.
The AMS had requested permission from President John
Macdonald to operate bars in
both the Armory and the Field
House.
• •    •
The request was refused because by law no persons under
21 are allowed to be in a place
where alcoholic beverages are
being served, said a spokesman for the president's office.
However, the Alumni will
take full advantage of their
senior years. All their reunions will have bars.
• •    •
The 1929 Reunion will be
held in the International
House, 19 3 9 in Buchanan
Lounge, 1944 in Mildred Brock
Room, 1949 Aggie Reunion in
Main Brock Lounge, and 1954
Arts Reunion in New Education Lounge.
Three reunions will be held
off campus.
The 1934 reunion at Hy's
Encore, 1949 at Commodore
Cabaret, and the 1959 reunion
at Ramada Inn.
Book sells
before it's
written
Totem, the campus yearbook,
goes on sale next week and
they're looking for people to
write it.
Totem needs all kinds of
writing talent, particularly for
work with photographers on
photo essays.
If you are writing talent, go
to the Totem office in the
basement  of Brock  extension.
Sale of Totem and its subsidiary, Campus Life, begin
next week.
Tables will be set up in the
Education and Buchanan
Buildings and in Brock Hall
for purchase of coupons to be
redeemed when the two books
are printed later  in the year.
The Totem, which will sell
for $4.00, contains Grad photos and write-ups.
Campus Life, which will sell
for $1.75, is a display of university events in words and
photographs.
Loan plan
hits mark'
Dean Walter Gage of Inter-
Faculty Affairs does not agree
with a suggestion that the federal government's loan plan
may miss its mark.
The Canadian University
Press story in The Ubyssey
said students from low-income
families are reluctant to attend
university when they have to
borrow to do it.
"This is simply not true,"
Dean Gage said. He said in
2,000 loan applications he has
seen no sign that there is not
an ample proportion of students from low-income families.
HARDIAL BAINS
. . . blasts IH
'Students
treated like
delinquents
By CAROL  ANNE  BAKER
An outspoken Indian student has blasted International
House for segregating foreign
students.
"International House treats
'oreign students as if they
were delinquents and needed
special help," said Hardial
Bains, Biology Graduate Studies, from Punjab University,
India.
He charged International
House encourages small ethnic
organizations, thus separating
foreign students from the Canadian  students  on campus.
"But," he said, "in the Grad
Student Centre the 30 to 40
foreign students receive no
special treatment and the results are great.
"Canadian students go to
International House to study
the foreign student's problems," he said, "but this does
not seem to help the foreign
students mix with the rest of
the campus."
