THE UCLA YEAR 1966 THE UCLA YEAR 1966 In a period characterized by worldwide social and political man has yet found the time, talent and resources to launch his inevitable exploration and use of outer space. In times such as these, success is measured in terms of how fast one can run, and run we must, to keep up with the explosive expansion of knowledge and to keep one step in front of each new crisis, global or domestic, as it erupts. In this environment, the pressure on our universities is unrelenting. Whether we like it or not, the university has been thrust into the front line of battle in defense of our safety as well as our values. At the same time the traditional responsibility of the university as discoverer, disseminator and keeper of truth remains undiminished. These are the facts and conditions one must understand if one is to know UCLA-1966—a university very much on the move. UCLA-1966 has the ingredients for greatness—an intelligent and concerned student body, a distinguished and creative faculty, a great and growing library already ranked among our nation ' s finest, and a campus generously endowed by the people of California with the many other necessary tools. These elements have combined to create a healthy and productive intellectual unrest, a compelling concern for discovery, and a sense of obligation to become completely immersed in the affairs of the world society. UCLA-1966 is a vital force in the society of scholars. It is not bound by the shackles of self-containment and scholarly isolation. It is constantly examining the status quo, seeking to find new answers to new problems, building important bridges between the known and the unknown. That this leads to occasional friction with the broader community is predictable and is evidence of its health and vitality as a true university. UCLA-1966 is an exciting useful place, and we are all fortunate to have been a part of it. Franklin D. Murphy Chancellor Culturally speaking, if a picture is worth a thousand words, a live performance is worth a thousand The " thousand pictures " in UCLA ' s cultural life are sponsored by the Committee on Fine Arts Productions which presented the student with another typically well-balanced year of excellent programs. As well as providing concerts by world renowned artists, the Committee also performances by artists and students from various departments within the campus. There was dance, music and films by the renowned and the gifted. The Student Cultural Commission, a body of six undergraduates and six graduate students, administers a program designed to student interest in cultural events on campus. From a budget supported by incidental fees, the purchases tickets to on-campus at prices up to five dollars each and the resells them to students for 50 cents. This year the Cultural Commission, in an effort to break down the associated with cultural events, sponsored a number of " coffee concerts. " Artists from the area were invited to perform for student audiences during the afternoon. No admission fee was charged and free coffee was served to the large audiences that attended each event. The Students supplemented this offering by performances for student-only audiences Film programs and live performances were which represented popular student tastes the restraint of what the establishment would consider financially profitable. If one wanted to do so, it was possible to attend a performance every night ... if one was simply rich, brilliant and led a simple life. But for those less fortunate the student cultural life was far from lacking. The CFAP, the Student Cultural Commission and ASUCLA brought the great and gifted into the familiar surroundings of the campus. Vladimir Ashkenazy is reputed to be one of the great young pianists of our time. It has been said that his interpretations and of Rachmaninoff ' s compositions are second only to those of Rachmaninoff himself. His December 2nd concert in Royce Hall allowed the UCLA community to his brilliance and versatility. During the 1965-1966 season, the Great Artists Series also brought artists of equal brilliance to UCLA: violinist Ruffiero Ricci in cellist Leonard Rose in February, pianist Artur Rubinstein and soprano Anna Moffo in March, and pianist Wilhelm Kempff in April. There were concerts by other great artists, among them guitarist Carlos and Marais and Maranda. There were a variety of performances by members of the Music Department in addition to the continuing " Let ' s Talk Music " series with Henri Temianka. Charlie Mingus and cool sounds, the hot wailing of Louis Armstrong ' s trumpet, the stoccato improvisations of the Swingle Singers–this was the jazz scene at UCLA, though less extensive than the classical offerings, the jazz concerts were more warmly received by the students. In the first of the three Fall semester concerts, Mingus and his sextet, augmented by extra musicians, performed some of his famous extended compositions. In October, Louis brought his All-Stars to Pauley Pavilion for an of jazz that only the inimitable " Satchmo " could give. The French Swingle Singers ' November concert illustrated the oft-made point that jazz is a step away from classical music, with its reperetoire of 18th Century fugues, preludes and other compositions accelerated and expressed in 4 4 time. The Student Cultural Commission and the ASUCLA Speakers program co-sponsored a program of Shelly Manne and Dick Gregory which was held in Pauley Pavilion. Many other jazz musicians were also seen at the informal " Coffee Concerts " also sponsored by the Cultural Commission. Due to the lack of theaters showing film of student interest, many film programs are presented for student only audiences. " The Collection, " a series of mid-century films, was sponsored jointly by ASUCLA and Delta Kappa Alpha. During the fall semester CFAP and the Theater Arts Department showed " Op, Pop Kicky Flicks. " The ASUCLA Film Commission, composed of graduates and held its own film series as well as jointly sponsoring film programs with other groups. During the school year there was at least one evening of cinema each week. During the spring of 1965, a new dimension in University-Student relationships was A liaison was established between the large resources of the Grunwald Graphic Arts Foundation and the student body. For a nominal fee, any UCLA student could rent a graphic print executed by such artists as Ernst L. Kirchner, the expressionist; Georges Braque, or the artist Misch Kohn. All available prints, rented out on a first-come, first-serve basis, were contracted for. the remainder of the semester. Because of the enormous success of its first experience, the Art Rental ' Program opened this Fall with an exhibition of 200 prints, and offered for sale 50 sugar-lift aquatints of " Small Bird " done by Misch Kohn, who was commissioned by the Art Rental Program. The Program ' s success and growing popularity promised to enable every student to live personally with a piece of art, or even own it, in the near future. The drama program at UCLA was rich and varied: productions were sponsored by the Theatre Group with the Committee on Fine Arts Productions and by the Theatre Arts Department. The year ' s productions included the highly controversial " The Deputy, " the Circle in the Square production of Euripides ' " The Trojan Women, " the American premiere of " The Cage " by Mario Fratti, a dramatic presentation of Yeats prose, poetry and plays, Anouilh ' s " Medea, " and Shakespeare ' s " Tempest. " The grace and style of dance extended from the most classical of to the more contemporary style of Daniel Nagrin. In the Art of Dance Series, UCLA played host to Balasaraswati the Classical dances of India, The Grand Ballet de France with full compliment of scenery, costumes and orchestra, Les Grands Ballet Canadiens, Murray Louis a prominent member of the Alwyn Nikolis Dance Company), and Lucas Hoving and Company (formerly a soloist of the famed Jose Limon Company). The Fall and Spring concerts, given by the Dance De partment for its Master ' s thesis candidates compared equally with performances by the professionals invited to perform during the year. On October 1st, 1965, UCLA hosted the 1st National Student Film Festival. Sponsored by the Graduate Student Association and the National Student Association, the Festival presented the ten prize-winning films chosen from a field of 35 finalists representing 22 schools, colleges and Universities. Divided into four categories (Fiction, Documentary, Animated, and Experimental), UCLA filmakers took six out of the ten awards given. The entries were judged by a panel of five professionals: Ernest Callenbach, editor of Film Quarterly; Pauline Kael, film critic for Vogue, Life, Holiday, the Atlantic Monthly and the New York Times Book Review, and editor of I Lost it At the Movies; Denis Sanders, film producer; Elliot Silverstein, director of " Cat Ballou " ; and King Vidor (Chairman of the Jury) established director whose list of credits includes " A Duel in the Sun. " It was easy for anyone who attended the Festival that night, to detect a sense of pride and excitement in what UCLA student filmakers were doing. For, as Pauline Kael puts it, " American-produced films are so uninteresting now. That ' s why there has been very little relationship between film produced by students and professional companies. Because of this situation, the American film industry has begun to imitate student films. " Perhaps UCLA is at the of growing movement. CYCLOTRON LABORATORY Authosized Personnel Only UCLA has had a working cyclotron since 1948. But since 1960 a 50 million electron volt sector focusing cyclotron has made the nuclear physics training program at UCLA nearly unique in this country. During its development plans for a conventional electrostatic deflector were being followed when studies showing the feasibility of accelerating ions in cyclotrons were published. Such a system uses a thin foil strip to remove the extra electron from the which because of the reversed curvature of its orbit, leaves the cyclotron. This process, it is separate from the acceleration process, is 99.5% efficient. Due to the potentialities of the technique, the UCLA group concentrated on its development. All planning, construction and revision of the present instrument has been done at UCLA. Through all stages, graduate have played an important role. Under graduates, too, have been able to work with the cyclotron. Cost restrictions necessitated simple for the cyclotron. But it is because the machine itself is relatively uncomplicated that undergraduates may operate the control Safety precautions, however, are the one phase in which no expenditures are cut. With any the instrument automatically shuts off. This makes the use by both experienced and inexperienced staff members feasible. The cyclotron is also completely " safe " for the campus and community in general. Although the instrument itself is small enough for members of the staff to lean on, it is surrounded by inches of steel and several feet of concrete. Daily radiation readings, taken on the outside of this housing structure, regularly register less radiation than is given off by an illuminated dial of a wristwatch. To analyze the experimental data obtained experiments, the laboratory has the use of the considerable computing equipment at the University. This includes three IBM 7094 ' s, 1401 ' s, line printers, card sorters, card punches, and other data handling machines. The newest addition which promises to greatly speed the handling of data is a Scientific Data System 925 computer, which is housed in the laboratory. The cyclotron laboratory performs experiments for qualified groups on campus and industrial companies. At present work is being done on the calibration o f radiation-detecting instruments. These will be used in space probes to see how much radiation astronauts will absorb. The only demand that is made by the cyclotron staff is that proposed experimen ts be well thought-out. The lab is run twenty-four hours a day five days a week and eight hours on the weekend. This means there just isn ' t time for poorly conceived experiments. Just as UCLA went from a " who ' s that " to the " who ' s who " of college football in 1965, so did UCLA ' s top stars go from " who ' s he " to " who ' s who " status. No single Bruin did this more than sophomore quarterback Gary Beban (16), who came from oblivion to ranking as one of the top collegiate callers. When the regular season was in the books, Beban had won All-America honorable mention, All-Coast first team honors and had set the all-time school total offense record with 1910 yards. Beban was not the only Bruin to stir up some steam offensively. Halfback Mel Farr (22), had the best rushing average in the conference (7.01 per carry), while All-Coast first team Fullback Paul Horgan (39), was third on the team in rushing yardage (438), but equally important as his line busting was his blocking. Beban ' s passing target was All-Coast split end Kurt Altenberg (26), whose 29 receptions included that fateful grab against USC. Bruin stars up front were AllCoast tackle Russ Banducci (67) and co-captain Barry Leventhal (63). Most highly honored Bruin was defensive tackle John Richardson (75), who was a All-American in his junior year. Other standouts defensively were first-team All-Coast halfback Bob Stiles ( 28), second-team linebacker Dallas Grider (55) and second team All-Coast ends Erwin Dutcher and Jim Colletto. When James Thompson Prothro came to UCLA in January of 1965, many sounded grave doubt as to his ability to make UCLA a big winner again on the gridiron. By January I, 1966, no one doubted Prothro any more. The big man and his superbly gifted staff had brought UCLA back to football majesty—the AAWU championship, number five national ranking and a Rose Bowl bid. When Prothro arrived from Oregon State—where he had just produced the AAWU ' s Rose Bowl representative—he said he had come south because, " there was more potential for fine here. That potential, it turned out. lay dormant within the men he inherited and a couple of key defense men he had brought in from the local junior colleges. In the spring, Prothro and his staff built the base for a season on teaching their charges fundamentals and hard-nosed football. In the fall days before the opened, the Bruins were taught the " system " , a shifting I-formation attack front which some of the most football seen anywhere during the 1965 season was to spring. Finally, as the began, Prothro and his staff instituted in the team a stirring confidence which carried them through more than one dark moment. It by this formula of soundness, offensive explosiveness and abiding confidence that Prothro built UCLA into a football power by performing the coaching feat of the year. It all started out quietly State against UCLA at East Lansing, Mich. The opening game of a football season in which neither school was expected to figure too prominently. Nine weeks later, MSU was playing Notre Dame with the national championship at stake, and UCLA was meeting USC for the AAWU championship. But at the time, it was just Michigan State, 13; UCLA, 3, with Gary Beban making a debut as UCLA ' s sophomore and the Bruin defense stopping MSU four times inside its own yard line. Two weeks later, the Bruins got even for the season, stopping host Penn State, Beban ran for two touchdowns in the game, and Mel Farr made himself felt for the first time during the season with a 58-yard touchdown jaunt late in the third quarter. The only discouraging aspect of the game was Penn State ' s two late-game touchdowns that had the Bruins staggering at the finish. At home for the first time, the Bruins their quick-striking capacity for the first time, and Syracuse staggered. UCLA scored on its first two scrimmage plays of the game—Beban running 27 yards for the first touchdown and up with Kurt Altenberg on a 79-yard pass play for the second—and Syracuse fell by the wayside, 24-14. Syracuse ' s Floyd Little also fell by the wayside, gaining 27 yards in 16 carries. It was back at Columbia, Mo., one week later, that UCLA made itself felt as a national powerhouse for the first time. The Bruins completely dominated powerful Missouri-save for a pair of long kick runbacks that allowed the Tigers to salvage a 14-14 tie. Two 34-yard pass plays from Beban provided the Bruin scoring, with Byron Nelson nailing the first aerial and Altenberg catching the second. UCLA ' s defense came up with one of its finest efforts of the year, explosive Missouri to just 146 yards total offense. Against California total offense was the story—as UCLA bombed brother Bear, 56-3, for its biggest win in All-U annals. Three men had two Beban, Farr and reserve Norman Dow; and, for an added fillip, placekicker Kurt Zimmerman set a school record with eight extra points. After Cal, the Bruins expected and had a natural let down. They didn ' t get on the scoreboard at the Air Force Academy until late in the third quarter; then a run by Farr and a 31-yard field goal by Zimmerman turned the trick for a 10-0 Bruin win. UCLA ' s Rose Bowl express almost was derailed before developing a full head of steam when the Bruins met Washington at the Coliseum. Huskie quarterback Tod Tullin threw two touchdown passes to end Dave Williams and after seven minutes of play it was 14-0, Washington. By halftime things still looked bleak, with Washington ahead, 24-14. But Beban ran 60 yards to a touchdown on t he first play of the second half, and with " sleeper " halfback Dick Witcher for a 60-yard TD pass a short time later, and it was 28-24. Then the Bruin defense stopped Washington three times inside their 20 yard line in the last half, and that four point margin stood up. Stanford rated as a pre-season contender for the AAWU championship, but the Bruins made the Indians look like an also-ran in the annual " northern trip " game, 30-13. Beban and Farr each scored two touchdowns in demolishing the Tribe and setting the stage for the climactic UCLA-USC struggle the weekend. " 55 MINUTES OF AGONY " In the first 55 minutes against USC, UCLA ' s dream football season seemed to be slowly turning into a nightmare. It all started off well enough; USC got the kickoff, gained nine yards on three plays and punted; UCLA began its first offensive series at its own 17 yard line, and after 8 plays had gained 34 yards, Melvin Farr sped through a gaping hole at left tackle and ran 49 yards to a Kurt Zimmerman ' s conversion try was blocked—a bad omen, for he had kicked 24 in a row previously—and it was 6-0 Bruins. After that, the 94,085 fans at the Coliseum watched Mike Garrett and the Trojan defensive unit alternate in seemingly destroying UCLA ' s Rose Bowl hopes. Garrett ran through holes in the line if they were there; ran through Bruins if the holes weren ' t there. When the afternoon was over he had totaled 210 yards in 40 carries. But he fumbled once at the Bruin one-yard line and another time at the UCLA 17, and ironically never did score, with quarterback Troy Winslow ten yards to Mickey Upton and eight yards to Rod Sherman for touchdowns and Tim Rossovich kicking a field goal and two conversions. While Garrett and Co. were scoring 16 points, the Trojan defense was tearing apart a Bruin offense that had scored three or more touchdowns against five of its previous eight opponents. In the period between Farr ' s and that final, decisive five minutes of insanity at the end, the Bruins were held to five first downs and 8 5 yards total offense. USC, by contrast, had gained 405 yards total offense and accumulated 21 first downs, and with just 300 seconds left to play, UCLA ' s rosey posie seemed all but dead. " 5 MINUTES OF ECSTASY " So there you sat, five minutes were left in the game, the score was 16-6, and Garrett was rolling around right end for 20 yards and a Trojan first down at the Bruin 47. But an SC man was detected clipping, and the ball went back to the USC 23. Then quarterback Winslow rolled out left and was running nicely when the world turned upside down. Bruin linebacker Dallas Crider hit Winslow and Erwin Dutcher recovered for UCLA at the Trojan 34. A flicker of hope, and then a flame, as Beban, shackled all day by a fierce Trojan rush, unleashed a pass that Dick Witcher clutched as he crossed the goal line. A pass from Beban to Byron Nelson got the two-point conversion, but it was still USC 16, UCLA 14, with just four minutes to play. Clearly it was time to try an on-sides kick, the play that never works. Only this time it did work, with Grider miraculously clutching Zimmmerman ' s diagonal line-drive boot on the first bounce at the Trojan 49. Yet the Bruins still had to score. And when they were in a third and 24 situation at their own 48, things looked bleak. So the bench called X Post H, and intended receiver Farr went out short and decoy Altenberg ran out long. Beban, who had thrown for Altenberg on the same play earlier in th e game—suffering the embarrassment of an threw long to Kurt once more. And this time Altenberg got it, and ran the final five yards into the endzone. While the place went berserk, the rang up the six points that told the final tale-20-16, UCLA. SC had one last try, but two runs by Garrett and two Winslow pass plays netted enough less than ten yards, that the Bruins took over the ball at the Troy 38. It took just three plays for the Bruins to " run " out the clock, as Beban scampered 27 yards and Horgan pounded the line for nine more on two carries. As Horgan bit Coliseum dust for the last time, USC hit the dust, too, as UCLA won the game it had surely lost and qualified for the Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl was one of those curious games in which the favorite had nothing to gain, everything to lose. There they were, Michigan State ' s Jolly Green Giants, a group which had been sca rcely threatened with defeat let alone tasting it in ten games. Everyone knew it was curtains for UCLA ' s blue-clad ankle biters even though they had won seven of ten games and the AAWU championship. At 4:35 on New Year ' s Day the curtain closed on MSU. The men in the know said Michigan State couldn ' t lose—butt lose the Spartans did, right from the opening play. On that first gambit, UCLA did something it wasn ' t supposed to do — run on the Spartans. Beban darted inside right tackle, then sped to the outside, and he was four yards into MSU territory before his 27-yard jaunt was at an end. The Bruin attack slowed, after two incomplete throws and a short gain, the Bruins were forced to punt. Following the punt, the Spa rtans, the 100,087 persons gathered at Pasadena, and 50 million television watchers got another significant message. UCLA ' s defense, which had almost let it down in the pivotal USC game and had failed it in the season-ending 37-34 loss to Tennessee, was supposed to wilt against Michigan State and its sizeable forward wall. So what happened? Clinton Jones lost two yards on the first Spartan scrimmage play, and two plays later Michigan State was faced with a punting situation, fourth and four. The second time MSU got the ball, it gained nine yards in three plays and punted again. The message was coining across loud and clear the " no contest " was going to be a game, after all. And what a game! With one minute left in the opening stanza, Bruin Larry Cox punted for the fourth time in the quarter. MSU co-captain Don Japinga grabbed the ball almost— at the Spartan six. Byron Nelson crashed into him, the ball rolled free, and UCLA ' s John Erquiaga fell on it. On the last play of the first quarter Beban rolled around left end for five yards, and on the opening effort of the next period, he made it 6-0, UCLA on a one yard sneak. Kurt Zimmerman made it 7-0 with his place-kick conversion, and, after a brief commercial message, Zim lined up for his kickoff. What a kickoff it was, an onside kick that caught MSU with its back turned. Bruin Dallas Grider pounced on the ball, as he had on the crucial onside effort against USC, Mel Farr broke over left tackle for 21 yards, then, at second and 15 on the MSU 28, the bomb struck. Kurt Altenberg sandwiched himself amidst three State at the MSU four and Beban nailed him perfectly. Kurt amazingly snagged the ball and pushed almost into the endzone. Baben took care of that on the next play, and after Zimmerman split the uprights again, it was UCLA, 14; MSU, 0, with the second just three minutes old. For the final of play, Michigan State, the proud national champion, tried to come back. But on an afternoon in which. UCLA wasn ' t to be denied, MSU was. In the second quarter MSU had two threats. The first came with the period six minutes old when linebacker George Webster, one of the super-big men who was supposed to hold UCLA in check, recovered Mel Farr ' s fumble at the Bruin 35. But after Jones zipped through left tackle on a draw play, quarterback Steve fumbled and Bruin co-captain Colletto smothered it at the 22. The other came in the waning moments of the period. Taking the ball on its own 20, the Spartans roared up field, first on a 20-yard sprint by Jones, next on an unnecessary roughness penalty, and finally on a pass interference call at the UCLA 15 on which " Player of the Game " Bob Stiles grabbed the arm of MSU ' s Gene Washington to prevent a sure touchdown. Three plays later, stalled at the Bruin six, State called on barefooted place-kicker Dick Kenney for what seemed a sure three points. But on a day of the unusual, Kenney ' s try from the 13 was wide to the right and the half ended with UCLA still 14 points ahead. Midway through the third period, it appeared that UCLA would lock up the game for good. With a first down at his own 20, MSU quarterback Steve Juday fired a pass—right to the waiting arms of Stiles at the UCLA 40 for Bob ' s second interception. On UCLA ' s first play, Beban tossed to lineman Larry Slagle on a tackle-eligible play for a 35 yard gain. Next he threw to Nelson, and UCLA had a first down on the MSU 12 and seemed sure to get at least a game-clinching field goal. Butt Beban, as he rolled out to the left, inexplicably dropped the ball; after he took one stab at it, he fell down and MSU ' s Don Bierowicz fell on it at the 32. MSU marched right back, moving to the UCLA 31, where it had the ball fourth and one. Here was where UCLA was again expected to fold. MSU with its 17-pound per man advantage was supposed to make easy work of fourth and one situations. But UCLA had the desire. Earlier in the period, the had needed one yard on third down and Jones had been stopped short on two plays. This time they called on Dwight Lee, but the result was the same. The Bruins stacked him up for no gain and took over the ball. By now MSU was desperate. With third and one at their own 29, they called on Jones again, and again Jones was denied. So it was fourth and one, and with the score still 14-0, they had to gamble. This time the Bruins outdid themselves. State sent Lee around right end, hut Stiles knifed in front the secondary and threw him out of bounds —two yards short of the line of scrimmage, three shy of a first down. UCLA had the ball in Spartan territory and was threatening again. One first down on three running plays put the Bruins in sure field goal range at the 15, but a penalty and two short losses on plays made it fourth down at the 27. Zimmerman tried the field goal but it fell short. MSU gathered itself for one final try. The first touchdown came suddenly. On the first, play, from his own 20, Juday passed to Washington for a 42 yard gain to the Bruin 38. On the next try, sub quarterback Jimmy Raye pitched out to fullback Rob Apisa who sprinted into the endzone. 14-6. MSU lined up to kick the conversion, but it was a fake. Kick holder. Today tried to pass, but Jerry Klein deflected the ball and it fell to the ground. UCLA had the ball briefly, but MSU got it hack when Bubba Smith partially blocked a Larry COX punt, giving the the ball at their own 49. MSU now raced the clock to the Bruin endzone. In 13 plays the Spartans marched to Bruin one, and on fourth down they needed one yard for a touchdown, half that distance for a first down. Raye cracked the middle, and by a matter of two, inches he got the first down. On the next play, Juday reached the end zone, with just 31 seconds left in the game. It was 14-12 and no time left for the Spartans to win it, he best they could hope for was a face saving tie. The Spartans lined up with the ball on the left-handed hash mark and ran the same pitchout to Apisa that had brought them a touchdown earlier. But Collett° grabbed Apisa at the four, Grider latched on too, and with one final smash, Stiles knocked himself and Michigan State cold with a jarring tackle that brought Apisa to earth at the one. That was the ball game, 14-12, as UCLA turned hack Michigan State with one of the great team efforts in Bruin and Rose Bowl annals, earning its first New Year ' s Day triumph ever. In an unbelievable conclusion to one of the most glorious chapters in Bruin football effort of complete dedication by coaches, players and staff—the 1965 football team put UCLA back on the collegiate map. In the Big Ten, most freshman football teams engage in no " game " activity, save a possible battle with the junior " redshirts. " UCLA ' s 1965 frosh were almost reduced to that level when the rain and injuries to several of USC ' s yearling gridders forced cancellation of the season-ending game with the Trobabes. This left the Brubabes with just two games, which they split—whipping Cal, 26-18 and then succumbing to Stanford 49-13. Quarterback Rick Purdy was on the sensational side in the Cal game, running for touchdowns of 66, 18 and 6 yards and winding up with 212 yards total offense. Pass interceptions, fumbles and a substantial superiority in numbers were key factors in Stanford ' s easy win. Brubabe stars included Purdy, Mike Bergdahl, halfback Vance Adelman, guard Jeff Bautista, center Paul Mayfield and defensive back Tod Friend. It was a bad year for Coach Jock Stewart and his UCLA team. The Bruins lost a game, an unusual occurrence since Stewart ' s teams had lost only three other games since 1957. To compound the embarrassment, the Bruins had a tie, which was only the fifth deadlock in those nine seasons. The tie came in the season-opener, 3-3, at the hands of UC, Santa Barbara. Two weeks later, another UC " cousin " did in the Bruins, UC Riverside. The Highlanders won 1-0 when a Bruin defenseman ' s kick bounced off a Riverside player and rolled into the goal. That was the end of the though, as the Bruins wound up with a 14-1-1 record. Stars of the team included goalie Warren Wilkenson, Nick Butkevich, Dave Cole and Louis Kanda. When Coach Bob Horn came to UCLA in 1963, Bruin water polo was like the proverbial " good little boy " seen but not heard from. In 1965, everyone heard about the Bruins and many people jammed the stands to see them, for 15 wins without defeat brought UCLA its first perfect season and the national championship. The toughest for the Bruins, who averaged better than 12 goals per game, came from within the conference specifically from USC and Stanford. Both victories over USC were one-point triumphs. In the AAWU opener, UCLA survived some ragged play to nudge USC, 6-5, with soph Russ Webb pacing the team with two goals. The season ' s finale saw the Bruins winning a double-overtime thriller from the host Trojans, 7-6, as senior Win Condict scored the goal, his fourth of the day. It took four goals by sophomore and Olympic Games star Stan Cole and four clutch third-quarter saves by soph goalie John Snow to bring UCLA a 7-6 win in its first meeting with Stanford. The second game, at Stanford, was a 5-3 Bruin victory, with Jay Campbell sending home the clinching goal. Cal was easy prey for the Bruins, 8-5, and 12-8. Biggest non-conference victories for the Bruins were scored against defending national champion Cal State, Long Beach, 8-3 and 14-4, and over powerhouse Foothill JC, 7-2. Top performers were Cole, Condict, Snow, Webb, senior Olympian Dave Ashleigh and sophomore Bruce Bradley. Nothing more symbolized UCLA ' s domination of western collegiate cross-country in 1965 than the carbon-copy, clasped-hand first-place finishes of All-America harriers Bob Day and Geoff Pyne. If Coach Jim Bush ' s squad was far ahead of the field as a unit, Day and Pyne were equally superior to their toughest individual rivals. The Bruins four different collegiate courses this year, and on three of them course records were set. In three of the meets, Day and Pyne staged one of their patented " dead-heat " victories. At USC ' s Park course, Stanford and USC fell as the Day-Pyne tandem set a course record of 16:09.8 for the three and one-half miles. At home to beat Cal, USCB and USC all on the same day, did it again with a 4.2-mile course record time of 20:22.2. The format changed slightly when the Bruins smashed the Air Force Academy in Day was all by himself in an Eisenhower Golf Course record of 20:13.6, followed in quick succession by Pyne, sophomore George Husaruk and Soph Rick Romero. In the dual meet finale, the firm of Day-Pyne was back in business, but rain cost the Bruin duo a shot at the Stanford Golf Course record, as the Bruins downed the Indians and Cal for the second time. Returning to Stanford a few weeks later, Day-Pyne, Husaruk Romero finished 1-2-4-8 to capture the West Coast championships. The ineligibility of Day and Pyne prevented UCLA from competing in — and undoubtedly winning —the NCAA championships. sonidos explosivos LANGUAGE RESEARCH What is the value of animated films in the of foreign languages? Learning this was the goal of Dr. Jaan Puhvel, Director of UCLA ' s Center for Research in Language and Linguist, and Dr. Joseph Applegate, Assistant Resident linguist, who spent part of the UCLA year Spanish-speaking students in Mexico City. Although films have been used as aids in development and in the presentation of cultural material, there has been no previous to utilize the cinematic medium fully in presentation of the structural features of a language. Some structural features of a foreign language are more difficult for the student to learn than others. Usually these require the perception of features that are disregarded in using the native language. When the environmental features include time and motion, motion pictures may be useful in emphasizing these features. This may increase the probability that the student will learn to focus his attention and will, therefore, learn to correctly use the pattern with which these environmental features are associated. To test this hypothesis, five features of English structure that are difficult for native speakers of Spanish to learn were selected. These five represent various levels of linguistic phonology, morphophonology, syntax and lexical choice. Teaching programs were prepared for each of the five points, including a short animated film. The first film, some frames of which are presented here, teaches the difference between " d " and " th " in English. To test the value of the film, the programs were used with classes of Spanish-speaking students to learn English. Tests were given at the beginning and conclusion of the program to the elementary school, secondary school, preparatory school and universi ty students who Two control groups were used: one had a teaching program in which the same material was presented but the film was not used; the second received only the pre-test and the that learning as a result of testing could be measured. Preliminary analysis of the results of the test showed what UCLA ' s researchers had suspected. The students in classes who saw the film had greater progress then those in regular classes. Arthur N Prior visiting Flint Professor of Philosophy Time—presentness, pastness, futurity—is something most of us just take for granted, or don ' t even bother thinking about except in rather specific, practical and personal terms. It is, however, a topic that has absorbed the interest of theologians, philosophers and logicians, as well as of natural scientists. Notions of the nature of time have entered into subtle and ingenious arguments about causation, fatalism, free-will, and the decisions of, and the choices open to, the Deity. Related to these have been debates concerning the notions of necessity, possibility and impossibility. This past fall semester many of these threads from the history of philosophy were picked up and woven into fresh, surprising patterns by Arthur N. Prior, Visiting Flint Professor of Philosophy. Students attending his course of lectures on Time and Modality not only were treated to an urbane, witty and knowledgeable introduction to important philosophical problems, they also enjoyed the rare privilege of seeing and participating in the development of new ideas in modern logic and philosophy. By mid-semester the course resembled a research project, working out and reporting new ideas and new results, more than it resembled an ordinary, didactic summary of " old stuff " . Tense logic may be characterized, in a rough and ready way, as study of the logical connections among propositions of the " it is the case that p " , " it has been the case that p " , " it be the case that p " , " it has always been the case that p " , will always be the case that p " , as well as more complicated like " it has been the case that it would always be the that p " . The letter " p " here stands for such sentences as is snowing " , " if it is snowing, then skiing will be possible " , is eating breakfast but Harry isn ' t " , " either the Sun is or there is an eclipse " , and so on. modal logic may be regarded as a study of propositions the forms " it is necessary that p " , " it is possible that p " , " it impossible that p " , and more complicated statements built up these, such as " it is possible that it is necessary that p " , etc. There has been much philosophical debates about the meaning of modal words, " necessary " and " possible " , and their use deduce striking conclusions in metaphysics. For example, to the Master Argument of Diodorus Chronos, a Greek of the Fourth Century B.C., future events are all of them already strictly determined, fixed necessarily, and beyond the power of men or of gods to change. By using the precise tools of modern logic, philosophers can at least clarify and make explicit the concepts being used and can mark out more exactly the points issue in arguments of this sort. This provides some comfort those of us, philosophers as well as ordinary human beings, who want to preserve the position that we are in some measure masters of our fates. In the attempt to evade such distasteful as those in the argument of Diodorus, it is, of course, on us to look with some care into the plausible notions that come to mind. The resulting investigations have and continue to yield, fruitful new insights into the variety sharply differing ideas that are frequently confused and blurred in every-day discourse—a confusion that can have philosophical and practical consequences. of the new areas opened up by Professor Prior during his at UCLA is the study of the logic of propositions that are to express total states of affairs and the relations holding such propositions and other propositions expressing past future states of affairs, and relations of necessity and among these. One of the principles whose consequences were studied intensively is the axiom that the total present state of affairs is that p, and if it is case that q is true, then necessarily, if p then q. the problems to which these results can be applied is the ancient Stoic cosmology. According to some Stoic philosophers, Universe goes on forever, endlessly recycling over long with the history of each cycle an exact repetition of the in all other cycles. Part of this Stoic view can now be precisely by using the concept of total states of affairs and logical apparatus built up in connection with it. Thus, it has proved that if a total state of affairs is repeated once then must necessarily have been repeated over and over again in past and mus t necessarily continue to be repeated over and again in the present and must necessarily continue to be over and over again in the future. Arthur N. Prior is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Manchester, England. He is the author of numerous that have appeared in scholarly philosophical journals, written three books, Logic and the Basis of Ethics, Formal and Time and Modality, all published by Oxford University Press, and is currently at work on two new works titled Objects of Thought and Past, Present and Future. He is an editor of of Symbolic Logic and a Fellow of the British Academy.

The all-night and the impassioned still occur, they do not signal the beginning and end of The talks and the songs go on; but do the tutoring projects in the slums of giant cities; the demonstrations in the towns Alabama and Mississippi; and the quiet, patient of Peace Corps projects around the world. students today are feeling their way of the academic environs. The really active are in a minority and always have been, they form a mature and responsible minority with both the determination to help change world and the knowledge that the work is and slow and hard. This last year alone has striking examples of an increasing by college students of the depth and power of their concern. the campus and in the community the students speaking out; he is no longer asking, but is demanding to be heard. He understands the between himself and the world at and the models of indifference and retreat, for him by student generations of the are no longer adequate. Whether it is policy at Berkeley or Vale, racial injustice in Smith, or the chronic pov erty in urban ghet toes, the American student is increasingly aware these problems are NB problems; that they determine his life in the uncomfortably near and that he has something to say about Where did this concern come from? The existed the " Silent Fifties " when students participated in projects such as Africa " and groups such as the U.S. Student Association maintained and student contact with political and social Fundamentally, however, it was in the Field of civil rights that the young became involved with the hard-core dilemmas of society. February of 1960 a small group of Negro college students entered a department store in Greensboro, North Carolina, and were refused at a lunch counter because they were Unlike past generations, they did not the badge of interiority They eat down and stayed. orderly but dramatic rejection of a pattern of racial injustice was the beginning of a new revolution Unlike other resolutions, however, these were not out to overthrow constitutional but to achieve it; not to reject heritage but to fulfill it; not to combat goverment bat to enlist its support where the promises a century had been cruelly mocked by the of bigotry. Those Negro students aroused support the nation. On the campus, however, they something more—something which despairing observers had not seen in a initiated a movement that proved the college could produce a powerful impact outside ivory tower. Thus, 1960 was more than the Year of the Sit-Ins. a very real sense it wa s the first year of the On dozens of campuses the latent political of students burst into activity. Both liberal conservative elements organized exhorted, and brought armies of speakers and onto the campus. This process of organization has been gaining ever since. But the positive students are making in community action, and civil rights me not made by they made by concerned individuals. are created out of the need of individuals to work together effectively, however, and study of the student grows born in the 1000 ' c the scope of the new student concern. setting is a migratory camp located near the southern-most tip of the San Joaquin Valley. The camp is owned by the Kern County Grow Association. During the summer months, 300 with approximately 900 children migrate this camp from the arid farmlands of Texas and lower South West.

Its purpose is to provide educational incentive for the of the workers.

Because the Mexican people may resent the helping hand from the north, Mexicans are recruited from the locale of projects to aid in the work. 0n the trip often play with Mexican children. In these ways, not only is construction work accomplished but friends are made. President Bob Azoff stresses that UCLA Amigos not pretend to aim for social reformation of the sin city, nor to save the town ' s people. The project, a singular main objective: to help UCLA students appreciate things which they may otherwise take for granted. Responding to the sit-ins of 1960, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) was founded at first as a loosely organized state-by-state clearinghouse for protest information and The structure was shaky at best, and still but the esprit de corps of SNCC is strong and the organization appears to thrive on the conflict of continual confrontation with the white, segregationist power structure. the beginnings of a full blown civil movement, the National Student Association sponsored a Sit-In Conference in the Spring 1960 to discuss what students could do to work toward eliminating segregation and in the South. This conference brought together 250 college students from across the country who returned to their campuses with the story of the new student action. Later the Association held a Human Relations in Atlanta during the summer of 1961; struggle to achieve full human dignity was becoming of chief concern to the student. The impact of this new concern quickly spread beyond the South. In the fall of 1961, the Student Movement (NSM) was founded, and the organization soon had projects underway in Boston, New York, Chicago, Hartford, Baltimore, Detroit, and Washington. In each at least 100 full time students were tutoring Negro public school students in an effort to their academic achievement. NSM has since its programs to include the social and organization of the urban poor into under local leadership. Study turned to action in the 1960 ' s. Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) suspended their to tied ways of putting ideas into Formerly the Intercollegiate Socialist Society (Upton Sinclair, Clarence Darrow, Sinclair Lewis), SDS was re-formed in 1962, when the Port Huron Statement redefined the organization ' s purposes. August, 1963, SDS set up the Economic and Action Project (ERAP), both to economic issues and to involve students community organizers among the poor of both It also established the Peace Research Education Project (PREP) to push university and to provide a general forum on the of social change. Action erupted in the West, where SLATE, a of California at Berkeley student political sprang into national prominence with its involvement in protest demonstrations against the Un-American Activities Committee in San Francisco. the same time, campus groups were organizing to express their concern about the arms race. College Peace Union joined the Student Union (SPU) in 1960 to form a stronger for peace. Harvard and Radcliffe, finding the Student Committee for a Sane Nuclear (Student SANE) too limiting, formed its voice, TOCSIN 1960 also saw the right begin to organize a way that directly resulted in strong student for Barry Goldwater ' s 1964 Presidential The Young Americans for Freedom grew out of a September, 1960 meeting law students and college conservatives at Review Editor William Buckley ' s estate Sharon, Connecticut.

Often the labels of and " left " only served to confuse the basic What role should the student play the University? Widespread debate was at the 1960 National Student Congress the explosive issue was whether students concentrate on social action or internal problems. The political forum also found its way into print. YAF published The New Guard and SDS produced of mimeographed material. A group of history students at the University of began publishing Studies on the Left, and mixed group of undergraduates, graduates, and young faculty at the University of Chicago founded New University Thought. many students spent their summer at the eighte en Bruins wont to a place that was much hotter but not nearly as much fun. were the students who went south with Sumner Community Organization and Education (SCOPE) project. a political action branch of Dr. Martin King ' s Southern Christian Leadership drew college students from all over the to work in blackbelt counties of six deep states. a week orientation with top civil leaders in Atlanta, Georgia, Bruin SCOPE to Bibb County in central Georgia and settled the city of Macon.

In fashioning projects to direct student the government has played and is playing dual role. It is both creating programs designed make use of qualified collegians, and helping finance private and local government projects of substance. in addition to its VISTA program (Volunteers In Service To America), in which students spend a year in a domestic service the War on Poverty has now moved to involve at the other end of the educational and spectrum. if the Job Corps is successful, school dropouts without training and without will be taught the skills needed to win a job with some kind of a future. community action programs, grants being made which will put students to work the root causes of poverty — the pockets of youth, trapped in cities of hopelessness, into another generation of citizens a future. These programs are trying to restore to people who have lived without it. is this generation of students, undaunted by failure, not yet resigned to the vicious cycle of injustice, which should provide the spark needed to make these programs successful. While in many sections of the nation the concern of youth is encouraged and even mobilized sympathetic local and state governments, there still many communities that maintain barriers to progress. In the South the Negro faces resistance from indifference as well as more overt and often brutal forces resistance that young people of both races are confronting in order to bring racial discrimination to end. The work of students in the South is often but it is continuing. What does this activity, undreamed of ten years mean? More than anything, it means that the student has created a place for himself the struggle for a better America. It means that choices are not limited to campus " activities " personal apathy. There are now projects which the talented, energetic, and committed student to work on a sustained basis to resolve the most challenging problems of a complex society. means that 1965 is perhaps the second Year the Student, for the explosion of 1900 has been into a wide spectrum of programs in the student who cares can work to resolve the problems he cares about. it means that for the student with ability enthusiasm a summer can provide a work which will make him a better citizen an improving world. Camp was born in 1935 during, the time when students were beginning to see that they were morally responsible for the welfare of other people less fortunate than themselves — particularly children. It all began with a discussion on issues, when one of the students Mid of the situation off needy children in the school where he student teaching. Many of those who listened him had never seen any of the areas of Los Angeles, much less realized how the children in these areas are affected by the economic, social, and cultural deprivation. But for those who did come to understand the situation, there was a very strong desire to do something to help — that some became Uni Camp. It began with 11 UCLA students and 54 children who spent 10 days together at Big Pines. must have gone pretty well, because Uni Camp went on, and by 1939 enough money had been raised (by UCLA students!) to establish a permanent camp site at Parton Fiats in the San Bernardino Mountains. Uni-Camp has grown. After the war the Joe E. family made a gift of $10,000 for the of the camp as a memorial to their son Brown, who had been a MA Camp counselor. lodge at Uni Camp now bears his name. In the summer of 1963 Uni Camp began a for blind children. It is run with the cooperation of the Braille Institute of Los Angeles. The ASUCLA Speaker ' s Program has traditionally brought UCLA the finest collection of speakers at any west coast university. In the past programs have featured politicians like Johnson and Governor Wallace of and have covered topics from control to rabbits. The responsibility attracting the speakers rests largely the hands of a group of dedicated who come armed with two drawing a handsome invitation and a remuneration to the charity of the speaker ' s choice. The questions raised by civil rights and the Viet Nam crisis provided the Speaker ' s Program with an excellent opportunity to look " answers " from some of the world ' s foremost experts during the fall. The tremendous student reaction to the of Dr. Martin Luther King campus in spring of 1965 provided the impetus for the appearance of several noted men in the civil rights field, including James Farmer, Roy Wilkins, Dick Gregory Lomax. In studying the Viet Nam issue every effort was made to attract strongest advocates of America ' s position and the most vocal dissenters. a few notable speakers, as Socialist Norman Thomas, were unable to meet prior commitments, the talks of men like U.S. Senator Wayne Morse and Tran Van Dinh enabled the Speaker ' s Program to present men representing views on both sides of the political spectrum. One of the first and most significant of the Negro leaders, Farmer told the noon audience of some of the many problems still facing the Negro in his struggle for opportunity. The he said, today faces a disadvantage in employment, housing, and political representation. In addition, former director of stated that the still fails to achieve recognition and acceptance in such media as television, MOVIE and magazines. It is possible he that if the color line could be erased in entertainment fields, that prejudice might be erased as well. Another Civil leader, Roy Wilkins, Executive of the NAACP, stressed before UCLA that prejudice due to physical is harder to overcome than due to ethnic differences. He pointed out that it is because of this that the Negro Movement has so inhibited. On a lighter side, Negro Dick Gregory was the featured of a Friday Evening Concert at Pavilion. One of the best Negro as well as a leader in the Civil struggle, Gregory found the August disorders in Los Angeles to be a source of material. " I ' ve heard even is interested in what happened Watts. They ' re planning on making a movie of it starring Rock Hudson Doris Day. " On the McCone report he noted: McCone report stresses need of education for everyone. But I know a valet can already speak four English, Spanish, and Yes-Sa. " On December 13,1965, television Louis Lomax columnist William Jr. in a debate before over-flow crowd of some students. The issue the current path of the rights program. Buckley, the position that the path was one which leading Americans away their obligation to obey Constitution, stated that a law even felt to be morally should be obeyed. In opposition to Mr. Buckley ' s point of view, Lomax urged if an individual ' s moral does not permit him to such a law, he has a right to violate it. However, the individual must, of be willing to accept the penalties. controversial debate was perhaps the most spirited event of the Speaker ' s Program. Discussion of the Viet Nam War centered around two noted specialists, Morse (D—Oregon) and Van Dihn, former Ambassador to the United States from Viet Nam. Whil e protestors and dem- onstrators rambled outside, the speakers debated inside on U.S. policy in Viet Nam. In Senator Wayne Morse argued that the U.S. should find a better position in the Asian conflict. His main reason for this was that our present policy the United Nations Charter. Under the charter all threats to peace of the world must be placed before the Security Council, which the United States has not done since it fears that the U.N. action in Southeast Asia would probably be vetoed by Russia. However, his main distress over the U.S. position in Viet Nam was that America ' s of political freedom were being forced on the Vietnamese, indicating the kind of Democratic capitalistic government that exists in the United States is being in Southeast Asia, rather than a of its form which might be better suited to the country. Tran Van Dinh, who is currently Washington Bureau Chief of the Saigon Post, also stated that the United States and Viet Nam should negotiate a treaty that would redefine the American position in the Southeast Asian republic. However, he disagreed with Senator Morse by warning that such a solution at the moment is improbable, considering the political views of the men now in power. Thus, he concluded, at least for the the presence of the U.S. is needed. In 964, when Berkeley attracted nationwide attention with its bid for " Free Speech, " it turned to UCLA for support. It got virtually none. An effort to start free speech demonstrations in Westwood proved mostly unsuccessful; apathetic UCLA was once again " heard from. " UCLA, because of its large, diffident commuter and Greek populations, was indifferent to the free speech issue, or any other issue for that matter. The rank-and-file Bruin felt that he already had enough freedom on campus and found it hard to sympathize with his politically " involved " northern cousins. By the end of that school year, UCLA ' s few activists began to make themselves heard. And as spring pushed into summer, the " noise " grew. It was clear that a change was in the making; and the maker of that change was the Viet Nam war. As early as the beginning of summer, 1965, Berkeley ' s rebels were calling more organizational meetings; their purpose was to change the target of their movement. The once hot Free Speech movement had cooled, and now a much more important issue was at stake. Out of these meetings sprang the Berkeley Viet Nam Day Committee, marches to Oakland and even louder protests. Surprisingly, this time, the cause spread to UCLA, for in 1965 there existed an issue so real as to affect every student, no matter how apathetic he might be. Over the summer, UCLA students formed their own VDC, and a few professors from UCLA began to show concern over their country ' s position in Southeast Asia. Anthropology Peter Lackowski formulated plans for a " teach-in " to take place during the fall, and philosophy Wade Savage was a frequent visitor to VDC meetings. But probably the deepest expression of concern was that of the late professor of philosophy Hans Meyerhoff. In his opinion, the war was wrong, and especially wrong was the United States attitude in the Viet Nam conflict. His feelings were heard and understood by many students as he commented, " If we don ' t speak now the days of the Republic are numbered. " However, there were other groups (the Bruin Young Republicans, the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), and the Victory in Viet Nam Assn. (VIVA) that opposed the V.D.C., Meyerhoff, and anti-war demonstrations; instead they sought American victory. On Friday, Oct. 15, everyone got his or her say. A crowd of more than 2,000 gathered in Hyde Park to listen to an array of speakers express their opinions on both sides of the issue. Meyerhoff led the opposition by reading a letter he had in reply to an editorial in the Los Angeles Times. The Times said, " U.S. must halt the Communist ' s blue print of eventual takeover in Southeast Asia. " Replied Dr. Meyerhoff, " Hanoi has not attacked us; we attack them everyday. We are the aggressors. " Speaking after Meyerhoff, Young Democrat President Walter Gorlick further added, " If we win in Viet Nam, that country will be subject to a spiritless of military juntas. " Among the supporters of the war were Bill Longstretch, president of the Bruin Young Republicans, who did not rule out negotiations, but felt that negotiations must be from a position of strength. Administrative Vice-President Dave Clark cited a Gallup poll which showed 75% of Americans supporting U.S. policy in Viet Nam, and a member of the John Birch Society expressed confidence that we can win the war if we use all our available resources. Despite the gravity of the topic on this day of speechmaking, there were those students who failed to take the various activities seriously; for one speech was interrupted by a barrage of water balloons and tomatoes thrown at the crowd from somewhere in Kerckhoff Hall while the Kelps sold buttons reading " Beat the Beards. " It was not until the teach-in that UCLA acquired an image of involvement. The teach-in lasted twelve hours, with crowds in the Student Union Grand Ballroom varying from 200 to 2,000. University police worked double shi fts, the FBI sent plain-clothed investigators, and reporters rustled about, as the Johnson Administration ' s policy in Southeast Asia was dissected by a seemingly endless line of proponents and opponents of the war. It was hard for Professor Lackowski to keep from smiling as donations of over $1,000 were collected. The group most responsible for igniting student activists on campus was the V.D.C. It was created over the past summer when a few people from S.D.S. (Students of a Democratic Society) joined forces with a few other students to form a committee which, in its opposition to the Viet Nam War, would be successful at attracting memberships at UCLA. Their efforts were more than successful. The group grew within a few months from 25 members to 300 who paid dues; it boasted a mailing list of an even larger To accomplish this growth, the V.D.C. printed and distributed leaflets, held regular business meet- ings and policy discussions, encouraged each new member to bring a friend at the next meeting, and set up draft counciling hours to inform students on the legalities of being a conscientious objector. Its activities included participation in the fall teach-in and the planning of a teach-in of its own. While its activities had not begun to approach the scope of those of Berkeley ' s VDC, the UCLA Viet Nam Day Committee, by year ' s end, had made a vital contribution to the campus—that of changing, if only a little, UCLA ' s image of apathy. ASUCLA Associated Students of UCLA, operating through the Undergraduate Student Association (USA) and the Graduate Student Association (GSA), sponsors a wide variety of dramatic, musical and cultural social events, community service projects, and student services. CONFERENCE HELP STAMP OUT COMMITTEES Sponsored by Bakersfield Committee to Stamp out Committees VICE PRESIDENT COMMUNITY SERVICE The legislative powers of the USA are vested in the Student Legislative Council (SLC). This body, operating under a new constitution, has a responsible for each area of interest. SLC considers programs ranging from academic, such as library hours and the taking of classes on a pass-fail basis, to cultural, such as the Art Rental Program and Chair for Great Men, and service, including the Blood Drive and Uni Camp. This year, other major areas of SLC concern included the building of the football stadium, Viet Nam policy, discount programs, and parking facilities. GSA, with representatives from all graduate departments and schools, provides social and activities for graduates, and represents their interests. Charter flights to New York and Europe are sponsored, and low-cost duplicating and Xeroxcopying are provided for graduates. Many students benefit from the complete financing of the Married Students Housing Assn. and the sponsorship of and a furniture cooperative. Four special governing bodies, composed of both undergraduate and graduate students, exist for purposes. The Board of Control has final on financial matters, while the Student Union Board of Governors insures that ASUCLA facilities provide the social, cultural, and intellectual necessary to further the broad liberal of the campus community. Communications Board publishes all ASUCLA publication and KUCW, the student radio station. Programming of cultural events and activities, such as movies and concerts, is done by the Student Cultural As student government is operated by and for the students themselves learn from it. This year there has been a greater emphasis on student government than ever before, for the world is greater participation from every individual than ever before. Throughout the year discussion sessions are held at Arrowhead between small groups of students and stimulating personalities from various fields of Louis Lomax on civil rights and Walter Kerr on " The Decline of Pleasure " hosted week-end sessions during the fall semester. Intended to stimulate thinking the program also provides a brief from academic pressures. THE NEW DICKSON ART CENTER The new, eight story, Dickson Art Center became the newest addition to the north campus Court of the Arts in February. A plan to move the Art Department had been initiated years earlier when it became evident that the old structure could not be expanded to meet increased needs. The move was scheduled to coincide with the opening of the School of Architecture which will be housed in the old art center with the Ethnic Arts Collection. The planning and design of the new building followed the same haphazard path of the other new structures on campus. Nothing can function correctly and move the human spirit when it is a product of the bureaucratic multitudes; when no one person is personally responsible for it, be it a building, a car, or a can opener. Some committee first makes an estimate of the required square footage for " X " amount of students to be enrolled in 19... After surviving countless other committees and gaining final Regental approval, the project is given, with all of its now built-in requirements, to one of the local job-shop architects. (It is considered bad taste to go out of the state for a talented architect). The new Art Center is pleasantly decorated, has the proper amount of square feet, stands up and has little or no relationship to what takes place inside its fancy walls. When the architects finished their play time the gay box was given to the members of the art faculty to divide among themselves. The meetings, both official and unofficial, to divide the money and space naturally brought out the best in each faculty member. The Art Galleries staff did not enjoy most of this dialogue, but was left to fight it out with the architects. It seems they had designed a gallery with all glass walls; it is rather hard to hang a painting on a window. The dialogue between students of different interests has not been forgotten either. The pictorial art students reside on the top floors and the designers on the bottom. They meet between classes on the elevators. Several professors in the design area are eagerly awaiting the expansion of the School of Architecture because it is closely related to the material they are teaching. The first area to be assimilated into the new school will be Environmental Design (interior design) which would represent a redundant program if left in the art curriculum. Industrial Design is also naturally tied to architecture by heritage and common purpose. Few disciplines within UCLA are less understood, than the Industrial Design program of the Art Department, yet have such a dominant influence on our daily lives. Industrial Design is a creative decision making process of a reiterative nature, aimed to establish the formal properties of products and systems manufactured by industry. The nature of the design process is integrative; it is not limited to surface but at the same time it is concerned with the structural, functional, esthetic and economic qualities. Generally the design process is developed in stages: a study and research of relevant data pertaining to the problem to be solved b formulation of hypothetical solutions c testing of preliminary proposals to determine feasability d feed-back optimisation. Translated on an educational level, the acquisition of design understanding becomes a process of discovery rather than one of conditioning, a process in which students are exposed to an inter-disciplinary formation process in which they acquire communication skills and relevant information from the sciences and humanities. The goals of the Industrial Designer in our time are oriented towards the creation of an environment aimed to fulfill the needs and aspirations of men. A concern for meaningful relationships between people and things is at the center of his efforts. By endeavoring to reestablish the disrupted balance between matter and spirit he is atte mpting to overcome the pressure of specialization. Through a comprehensive integration of arts, technology and sciences the modern designer must be equipped to consider all the aspects of the man - made environment as conditioned by industrial production. The most important exhibit of the work of Henri Matisse since his death opened the Art Galleries of the new Dickson Art Center. The exhibit was organized by the UCLA Art Council and UCLA Art Galleries and sponsored by the French government. Loans, including 92 paintings, 47 sculptures, 83 drawings, 108 prints and 11 decoupages, were loaned by private collectors in France, Switzerland, Sweden, and the United States. As the exhibit opened, negotiations were still going on to obtain the loan of several paintings from the Soviet Union. An eleven color poster and a detailed catalog were offered for sale retaining the high quality of the past Picasso and Lipchitz exhibits. basketball One seeking an expert analysis of why UCLA did not win its fifth straight AAWU basketball in 1966 would not have gone to head coach John Wooden or his knowledgable Jerry Norman for the answer. Bather, he would seek the offices of Head Trainer Elvin (Ducky) Drake and Team Physician Dr. Martin Blazina for the right answers. For the story of UCLA ' s second place finish in the ' 66 AAWU race was best told not with statistics and game films but with medical records and x-rays. The Bruins who miraculously all but avoided illness and injury through two consecutive national championship 1964 and 1965, were struck down time and again in 1966... a year in which, of a lack of depth, could least afford it. Only once in four league losses, and only twice in eight defeats through the season, was Wooden able to send all six of " first stringers " to the floor in an able-bodied condition, and in one of those losses, today three of the six were fit. The result was that the Bruins finished AAWU play with a 10-4 record, two games behind champion Oregon State, and wound up with an 18-8 overall mark, their poorest in four seasons. o Just one of Wooden ' s starting six managed to come through the entire campaign without some sort of ailment, sophomore guard Mike Warren. The hospital report for the other five combined to script " finis, " at least temporarily, to UCLA ' s domination of the AAWU title. By season ' s end the sick list read as follows: Freddie Goss, had suffered a mysterious stomach ailment and missed first seven Edgar Lacey, who had season long misery, first diagnosed US " bursitus. " finally discovered to be knee fracture, mised the last six games including crucial road losses to and Oregon State, and was severely hampered in game at Washington State: Kenny Washington, suffered a muscle pull ad missed all but last few of game at Washington State; Mike Lynn, caught the Asian flu which severely weakened him for the games at Oregon State and Oregon; Doug Mclntosh, bruised his back against Oregon State and missed the game at Oregon. Yet despite the disappointment of failing to qualify for the NCAA regional playoffs in the year. UCLA had been selected to host them, there were several memorable moments during the 1966 campaign. Like beating USC handily in all four games; like the Los Angeles Basketball Classic for the fourth straight year; like playing in a beautiful, new on-campus arena for the first time, and recording a perfect 11-0 record there; and like throwing a " night " for head Coach John Wooden in memory of the many satisfying nights he had given UCLA. The individual Bruins gave their followers some exciting moments, and earned themselves many individual honors in the process. Forward Mike Lynn-found " himself as a junior, leading the Bruins in three major offensive scoring (16.8 average ), field goal (411.3) and rebounding (269 ). Five-foot, sophomore Mike Warren inherited a burden and responded magnificently. Called on to fill the playmaker shoes deserted first by Walt Hazzard and then by Gail Goodrich, and rushed prematurely into the starting lineup of Goss ' illness, the " Flea " came through with the highest scoring sophomore year in Bruin history, 432 points, just four short of Lynn ' s total, and Bare the Bruins talented floor leadership. The most popular Bruin achieved a personal goal when he reached the starting lineup after two years as " sixth man. " Kenny Washington was third on the leant in scoring 340 points ( 13.1 ), first in free throw percentage (75.0) and wound up 14th on the all-time UCLA scorers ' list (821 points). Wash ' s senior sidekick, Doug McIntosh, had his MOW productive year as a Bruin, just missing being a double figure scorer by nine points (241. 9.6 average ) and winding up second in rebounding (1117). Disappointment marked the seasons of both Goss and Lacey. Goss, knocked out of the starting lineup until late season by his illness, did not reach full strength until the last four games, averaging 18.5 points per game in that span, as opposed to 13.1 for the season. He finished 13th on the all-time scoring list with 825 points. Lacey, frustrated by the knee ailment which cut down on his spectacular was completely curtailed in those crucial late-season games. When forced to bow out by his broken kneecap, he was second on the team in rebounding (in comparison to leading the Bruins as a sophomore), and third in scoring ( 13.6 He finished the year second in field goal percentage (46.7). The reserves—Joe Brice Chambers, Vaughn Hoffman, Randy Judd, Don Saffer, Neville Saner and Gene played their part, too, particularly Suffer and Judd, who were called upon to fill in injury or illness struck down one or more members of the starting six. Pre-season play went pretty much as expected, with the exception of a loss to Cincinnati. The first two games in Pauley Pavillion were breezes, a 92-66 rout of Ohio State on opening night and a 97-79 win over Illinois the following weekend. With Duke rated among the top three teams in the nation, UCLA ' s outlook was bleak for its two-game series against the Blue Devils in North Carolina. And outcome matched outlook, as Duke destroyed the Bruin press and took them to task, 82-66 and 94-75. UCLA ' s most impressive pre-season victory came the following weekend when they scored a smart Pauley Pavillion win 78-71 over eventual Big Eight champ Kansas, paced by Mike Lynn ' s 26 points. Flat a fter seeing Cincinnati bow to USC in the opening game of the Friday Pavillion the Bruins trekked to the Sports Arena and unexpectedly dropped an 82-76 verdict to the Ohioans the next night. Returning to the Arena on December 22, the Bruins enjoyed a most pleasant evening, as Freddie Goss returned to the squad to inspire them to an 86-67 rout of USC. A 14-minute, 42-10 blitz turned the trick for the Bruins. The Lo s Angeles Classic produced its classic result—a championship for UCLA, the fourth in a row. The Brains scrambled their way into the finals with a tough 95-89 win over low-ranked LSU and an 82-70 semifinal triumph over Purdue in which they held the Boilermakers ' n ational scoring champ Dave schellbace to 23 points. USC ' s upset win over Vanderbilt in the other semifinal gave the Classic its first Bruin-Trojan finale. The result was the same as always, UCLA winning its eighth straight game from, Troy, 94-76. So the Bruins went into league play with a 7-3 record, and except for the loss to Cincinnati, they had per formed about as expected. All signs pointed to another AAWU crown for UCLA, and after the first weekend of league play, these indications were unchanged. For the Bruins took apart Oregon State and successive nights. First they crushed OSU, 79-35. Playing their slow-down game, the Beavers stayed with UCLA for the first 14 minutes, trailing only 20-18 at that point. But they hit a cold spell, and when UCLA outscored ' em 11-2 before halftime, the Bruins had a 31-20 halftime edge. In the first ten of the second half, things got ridiculous. OSU simply couldn ' t buy a basket, scoring just two points during that time while the Bruins connected for 28 big ones. The score was 59-22 and the were finished. Lacey played a key role in the victory, both offensively and defensively. He tied Warren for high point honors with 18 big ones, had 13 rebounds and bedeviled OSU ' s soph star Loy Peterson at both ends of the court, containing him defensively and drawing fouls front him. Peterson fouled Lacey twice in the first 90 nailed McIntosh with six minutes gone for his third, and had to go to the bench. His fourth foul came with 2:32 gone in the second half and he was never a factor in the game thereafter. Clearly, OSU was no threat in the AAWU race. In fact, when it was announced late in the Bruins ' 97-65 rout of Oregon that OSU had beaten USC, 59-56, the Bruin rooters cheered delightedly, figuring Mat the Trojans would be a much stronge r threat the AAWU title than the Bearers. ' The Bruins, in fact, seemed much too strong for any off their conference rivals. After dawdling their way past California, 75-66, at Berkeley, the Bruins crossed the bay for their first big league road test of the year, an afternoon game against Stanford. The Indians, fired up to the sky, caught the Bruins napping eat the early stages of each half, and when it was aid over, the Indians were a 74-69 grinner, dealing the Bruins their first, conference loss in 35 outings. In the first seven minutes of the first half, UCLA stood around and Stanford raced to a 13-point advantage. Then the Bruins got going, and with their press working numerous turnovers, they pared the Tribe ' s lead to three just before halftime. It seemed that the Bruins would go from there to victory, only lethargy struck again at the outset of the second half, and with 17 minutes left in the game, Stanford was out ahead by 13, 33-46. UCLA came back again, but never could quite catch Stanford, though it looked like they might when, with the score 67-69, and just 45 seconds to play, Lynn seemingly made a clean steal from Art Harris. But referee Ernie Filiberti called a foul on Mike, and two free throws locked it up for the Tribe. After a split of two non-conference games right after finals (losing 102-96 in at Loyola of Chicago and whipping Arizona, 84-67), the Bruins returned to conference play still in first place at 3-1 ( tied with Stanford and oregon State ). They were on the road again, playing a Saturday night game at Washington State. The Bruins led by as many as nine points in the first half, but fell nine behind when WSU went on a 22-6 scoring spree at the outset of the second half. Both Lynn and Lacey were in foul trouble throughout the second half, with Lacey—badly hampered by his knee — exiting with 12:30 left to play and Lynn following him, some four minutes later. Despite this, UCLA came back, pulling into a 72-70 lead with seven minutes to play. From there to the finish, the score see-sawed back and forth, with UCLA still in front, 83-82, with 25 to go. But when Doug Kolke made two free throws with five seconds to go, the Bruins could not retaliate, though Kenny Washington ' s last second 25-footer just missed changing the final outcome. When Oregon State upset Stanford at Palo Alto, UCLA was out of first place in the AAWU for the first time since 1963. Now, for the first time, the reality that UCLA might not win the conference title struck. Now 3-2 in league play, the Bruins had to worry about Oregon State, which had a 5-1 record. They responded with three wins in six days, beating Washington, 89-67, Monday night at Seattle, and then returning home to crush Washington State,88-61, on Friday and 100-71, on Saturday. That Friday victory was a most costly one, however, for it proved to be Lacey ' s last game. Lacey fell hard to the floor the course of the first half, widening the crack in his knee to such an extent that he could play no more. Within one week his knee was in a cast. So, with Lacey gone, Washington still bothered by his muscle pull and Lynn barely able to travel because of the flu, the Bruins went to Corvallis for their showdown battle with Oregon State. In their crippled state, the Bruins were unable to play their game, and OSU was able to stay in its throughout, finally winning out, 64-51. The Bruins were in the ballgame for the first 26 and one-half minutes, trailing just 40-36 with 14:23 to play. But OSU made eight points to UCLA ' s owe in the next four minutes, and the Bruins never were able to get close again. Now two games down in the standings, the Bruins took their fading title hopes to Eugene. In an afternoon game with UCLA ( sans McIntosh, injured the night bowed to the Ducks, 79-72, and thereby eliminated themselves from the race. While five missed one-and-one free throw situations in the last four minutes played a substantial part in the loss, a slightly healthier Bruin team would have been able to combat Oregon, regardless. Even after USC stunned Oregon State, the next night, UCLA was still two games down. The Bruins did their best to be able to take advantage of a possible last-moment OSU collapse. They thumped California, 95-79, and Stanford, 70-58, in Panley Pavillion games. But the Beavers were not going to collapse, even though three of their last four games were on the road. First they beat Washing- ton State, 54-47, at Pullman, and two nights later, they sewed up a tie for the title with a 54-43 win over Washington. Being eliminated from the conference race wasn ' t enough to keep UCLA from smashing USC twice for a rousing end to their In the two games, USC was in the ball game only once. That state of affairs came midway through the first half on Friday, when USC fought back front a 67-52 disadvantage to tie the Bruins at 69-69 with 7:30 left to play. During that the Trojan rooters told the Bruins it was Oregon State 49, Oregon 42, officially eliminating UCLA from the race. But that didn ' t faze the West-wooders. They outscored SC 25-10 in the final seven and one-half minutes to close out their Pauley PuriDion schedule with a 94-79 win, paced by a 35-point effort by Mike Warren. The game of the Bruin careers of Washington, Goss and McIntosh was bittersweet, bitter as the of the only non-championship year for the trio, but sweet in a 97-60 win over the Trojans at the Sports Arena, the biggest victory in UCLA-SC Both Goss and Washington went out with a flourish, Freddie scoring 23 points and clearing 11 rebounds and Kenny getting 18 points and 10 rebounds. And so the campaign ended with mixed Bruin emotions, sad at the loss of a championship and gladdened with thoughts of a bright tomorrow. THE GREATEST FRESHMAN BASKETBALL TEAM EVER ASSEMBLED THOSE FANTASTIC FRESHMEN —Top row (left to right), assistant coach Jay Carty, Bob Simmons, Kenny Heitz, Mike Roane, Lew Alcindor, Lynn Shackleford, Lee Newell, Kent Taylor, head coach Gary Cunningham. Bottom row, manager Paul Coffman, Jim Lincoln, Lucius Allen, Jeff Lewinter, Bob Marcucci. Four high school All-Americans who lived up to expectations and a coin paratire " unknown " who was beter than anyone could have hoped to give UCLA the greatest freshman team ever assembled. The absolutely unbeatable Brubabes raced through 21 straight games without ever drawing a deep breath, giving UCLA its second unbeaten frosh team in history and setting a school frosh record for most wins.The closest any opponent ever got to the Brubabes was 28 points, and the average margin of victory was over 56 points, as the Brubabes averaged 113.2 points per game and topped the 100 mark in 17 games. In one flight of fantasy, they all but broke the Pauley Pavillion scoreboard with a 152-49 victory over Citrus College. It took some fantastic individual stars, molded into a smooth-working unit by Coach Gary to achieve such amazing results. And the individual Brubabes were. Best of all was 7-foot, 1 -inch Lew Alcindor, who inaugurated a new era in Bruin basketball with a 33.1 scoring average, 68.3 shooting percentage and 21.5 rebound per game mark. The big guy proved to be everything said of him, and more. Not were men like guard Lucius Allen, who showed the ball-handling skill of a Hazzard and the shooting skill of a Goodrich in averaging 22.4 points per game and 6.2 assists per game. Forward Lynn Shackelford showed that he ' ll become the greatest pure shooter in Bruin annals with his long, high-arching jump shots that brought him a 62 per cent shooting average and a 20.9 point per game scoring average. He was also second in rebounding with 9.3 per game. Dynamic guard Kenny Heitz, converted from, a high school forward, showed ability on both ends of the court, averaging 14.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per game and consistently drawing the " tough " defensive assignment. The " unknown, " spirited forward Kent Taylor, blended his talents as a passer, shooter, defender and ball-handler. By year ' s end, this fantastic five was not only rated as the best frosh team in history, but one of the collegiate teams in the country of 1966. UCLA enjoyed its greatest swimming season in history in 1966, both from a team and individual standpoint. No less than nine school records were set enroute to a 10-1 dual meet record and a second place finish in the AAWU championships. Only USC, which sunk the Bruin 75-20 in dual competition and out scored them in the meet, could best Coach Bob Horn ' s spirited team. Records were set by Jim Keller in the 50 and 100 yard (22.1, 48.6), Terry Flanagan in the 200 freestyle (1:47.7), Mike Berger in th e 100 and 200 backstroke (55.1, 2:01.1), Jim Bailey in the 200 individual medley (2:02.3), Matti Kasvio in the 400 individual medley (4:32.8) and by the Bruin 400 and 800 yard freestyle relay teams (3:15.0, 7:17.5). In the NCAA championships, the Bruins tied for seventh with 89 points, with Russell Webb producing the top effort with fourth places in both the 100 and 200 yard breaststroke. UCLA ' s 400 individual medley relay team tied for second place and the Bruin 400 freestyle relay team won the consolation race. The Bruin frosh matched their varsity counterparts, enjoying an unbeaten season that included the school ' s first victory over USC. The Brubabes set three national frosh records, with Mike Burton going 4:48.9 in the 500 freestyle and 16:49.7 in the 1650 freestyle and the Bruin 400 freestyle relayers hitting 3:15.2. Coach Art Shurlock devoted his second year as UCLA gymnastics coach to the development of a young squad, as only two of the 13 men on the Bruin roster were seniors. The Bruins had a 3-6 dual meet record, with victories over Stanford, Valley State and Cal State, Long Beach. young gymnasts who gave promise of great things to come were all-round star sophmore Kanate Allen, who won two events against powerful USC, junior Al Luber in the side horse, junior Arnold Widofsky on the trampoline and sophomore Mike Chaplan on the still rings. Senior stars were side horse man Sam Otsuji and horizontal bar Brian McBean. It was a rebuilding year for Coach Dave Hollinger and his UCLA wrestlers. Not a single man of the eight men who earned UCLA a thrid-place finish in the AAWU was a senior. Stars in the conference meet were Lee Ehrler (152) and Ralph Orr (167), who won their weight classes; Rick Whittington, second at 191; Gary White, third in 177 pound competition; and Jay Dess, fourth in the 130 class. Whittington, whose only loss prior to the AAWU meet was to U.S. Olympian Charlie Tribble of Arizona State, and Orr were the most consistent Bruins through a 6-6 dual meet season. Over 2700 once-a-week athletes dropped their books and their activities and headed for the playing fields during the fall semester, as UCLA intramurals enjoyed the greatest participation ever. In football alone, 70 teams and over 1600 players knocked heads. Two new events were added in the fall, free throw shooting and coed golf, and both received warm receptions as UCLA students took to intramurals as never before. For most there was mostly fun, little glory, although some like All-University football champion Lamda Chi Alpha — did win some prestige. For most, what prestige there was came within a living group or a team, and not from the campus as a whole. Mostly, though, for the high school athlete who didn ' t make it in college, the duffer or the muffer, intramurals offered the opportunity for a little exercise, a little fun. INTRAMURALS Football ... Not Just For Watching A Rose Bowl Every Afternoon Girls Basketball: Good Looks and Hooks UCLA ALUMNI MAGAZINE special issue: STUDENTS IN THE SIXTIES The primary task for the 15,280-member UCLA Alumni Association has become one of regularly with its members according to Executive Director, Douglas Kinsey. This goal is accomplished through the medium of the UCLA Alumni Magazine, a 40-page publication which aims at keeping alumni informed and interested. The person directly responsible for maintaining this liaison is magazine editor Miss Nancy N aylor, who, since coming to the Association two and one-half years ago, has set herself a goal of presenting " to graduates of the last year and the last generation alike, the story of UCLA today. " Says Miss Naylor, " The UCLA Alumni Magazine must not only coordinate alumni, it must convince them. A proud identification with UCLA is important. Such myths as ' state funds are unending ' must be overcame. We tell people UCLA is better today than ever before, and emphasize that this is because of expansion. " " State funds alone, " she continues, " are not provide for the extensive research, student activities and facilities which must be a part of any good university. " To interest alumni, magazine themes over the past year have ranged from " UCLA and Great Urban Problems " to " Students in the Sixties. " The latter issue was sent to all 80,000 UCLA alumni, in an effort to promote membership in the association. A mailing of the magazine is made yearly. Under Miss Naylor ' s guidance the magazine ' s appearance and content have changed " No longer do class notes and the of the class of ' 42 preoccupy_ the and similarly no longer can these items fill our magazine, " says Miss Naylor. Because of her unfamiliarity with the UCLA campus and its traditions and myths, Miss Naylor found it easy to reform the magazine. " Some objectivity is necessary to extract the outstanding points of a since we are trying to do just this, l do not find myself hampered by my lack of knowledge of what campus life was like in the past. " Miss Naylor ' s interest in graphics is reflected in magazine ' s vastly improved format. More white space is used. Fewer, larger and better quality are used. " The classic 11 2x11 2 photo of the alumni president handing a check to a official will nevermore appear in the UCLA Alumni Magazine, " assures Miss Naylor. The infrequency of the magazine precludes feature articles on such alumni activities as outings to UCLA-SC football games. However, the staff does make a special effort to present detailed reports to alumni on such long term fund raising projects as Pauley Pavillion and the once-proposed on-campus football stadium. As in the past, the Alumni Association strives continuously to raise funds for student facilities and scholarships. But only recently has the trend personal alumni participation been Through active participation the Association now co-organizes the World of Work conference, the Student-Faculty Colloquium and such single, direct aids for students as help in current parking disputes with Westwood residents. The Board of Regents, designated in the California State Constitution as the governing body of the of California, is composed of twenty four members. Although sixteen of the members are appointed by the Governor, his appointments are for sixteen year terms—thus removing these members from pressure. The remaining eight members are exofficio and sit on the Board by virtue of an elective position they hold. The ex-officio members are: The President of the University, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, the Speaker of the Assembly, the President of the State Board of Agriculture, the President of the Mechanics Institute of San the President of the Alumni Association of the University of California, and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The Regents meet monthly for two days, with the location of the meeting rotated among the several UC campuses. Four committees meet before the general meeting. These committees are building, finance, educational policy and grounds. During the past year the organizational structure of the Board has been discussed, with an eye towards facilitating decentralization. In present pr actice, these approve recommendations made to them by the President ' s Office. Similarly, while the Regents hold ultimate authority within the University structure, that authority depends in practice on the information given them by two sources: the state-wide Academic Senate and the President ' s Office. The Regents discuss and vote upon reports with all segments of the University ' s operation: statewide organization, financial operations, autonomy, student political activities and university administrators. At a summer meeting, President Kerr presented the final revision of the Kerr Directives, dealing with the political activities and student governmental of the University. This revision went into effect on July 1, 1965. The revision includes a " standard of conduct " by which students " assume an to conduct themselves in a manner with the University ' s function as an educational institution. " In general, the revision, which a liberalization of statewide University policies, was an outgrowth of the 1964-65 demonstrations at Berkeley. For years, UC students had plunked down the required incidental fee - $220 per year since 1964 with scarcely a whimper. But during the past year, large numbers of students began to seriously the use of that money. It was Chancellor Murphy ' s proposal to use fee monies to build a football stadium which aroused student interest. In February of 1965 the UCLA Administration had announced a surplus in fee State legislators were again discussing fee increases. But these were not unexpected developments. It was not surprising that incidental-fees, which affect all students directly, aroused UCLA students as not even the FSM had been able to do. Spearheading the 1965 fight against a football stadium, the Daily Bruin published a feature series entitled " Money and the Multiversity in an attempt to bring the key issues of control of incidental fees to the forefront. UCLA students, in the spring and again in the fall, voted by a two-to-one majority against the proposal to use fee funds to build a football stadium. In spite of this student opposition, an artists representation of the football stadium went on display in the student union. During January and final exams the debate cool Chancellor Murphy had said of fee funds, " This is university money, not student money. It will be spent on my recommendation to the Board Regents. " But final presentation to the Board of Regents was clearly delayed. By February, the $5.9 million football stadium was a $1.5(?) million track stadium. The merits of either completed stadium were no longer discussed by students. Rather, the lessened monitary gravity served to quell student opposition. Aside from the effect student opposition may have had on the Chancellor ' s decision to drop the stadium proposal, little of the incidental fee structure was affected during the year. But the aspects of that structure, for the first time, are now common knowledge for many students. The Chancellor at each UC campus does hold the power to spend incidental fee funds with the approval of the Board of Regents. The role of the Regents, in accordance with the current movement, is becoming increasingly an occasional review role. Rather, expenditures are present as a group to the Board when the campus budgets are reviewed on a yearly basis. At UCLA over 80% of fee funds are used to finance largely undisputed on-going services to students such as the student health service, the counseling service and graduation. The remainder of funds are used for capital projects, either by direct payments or loans. For example, the Canyon Recreation opened this year, is a fee financed project. What will be done with the " surplus " once to finance the football stadium has not been decided. But this is not money which is now lying idle. The " surplus " announced by the and often discussed by students is actually a surplus projected for 1969, the year when the first payment was to be made on the stadium.

The Prince, who renounced a claim to the Greek throne in 1947 to marry the future Queen of England, Elizabeth, annually presents the Duke of Edinburgh Award, to " encourage young people in Britain to use their leisure time sensibly. " Students, faculty, alumni and the general public attended the ceremony, marking the 98th of the founding of the University in 1868. Other speakers on the program included University Clark Kerr and Chancellor Franklin D. Murphy. Following Philip ' s address, Kerr awarded him an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. Prince Philip was in Los Angeles on the invitation of Variety Clubs International, who sponsor the of Pediatric Cardiology at UCLA, which he visited as well as the Hope for Hearing Research Foundation before his speech. In his speech, heard by an audience of over 7500, the Prince noted that our technological age has a " totally new " form of civilization which has more leisure time at its disposal. " Modern he said, " is creating a new ethic which is simply that work is a means of gathering leisure. The prince pointed out that in reaction to boredom a symptom of not knowing what to do with one ' s time — frustration, anti-social and anti-authority behavior and delinquency have resulted. The in stimulating society to effectively use its leisure time is to " make certain that more people become aware of the opportunities available ... and to ensure that facilities are fully and properly He said that the Universities can play a major part in providing solutions to the problems of leisure. His talk was the first given by a royal speaker at UCLA Charter Day ceremonies. Previous Charter Day speakers include President Lyndon B. Johnson, Vice-President Hubert Humphrey, former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and former Mexican Adolfo Lopez Mateos. WORLDS LARGEST COLLECTION OF ETHNIC ART HELD BY AN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION IS USED FOR THE STUDY OF PRIMITIVE CULTURE These objects exemplify the range of the culture of the arts and technology of the Eskimo, Australian aborigines, Southeast Asia and Oceania and African Negro tribes: they are a part of the collection now held by the Museum and Laboratories of Ethnic Arts and The collection was enlarged and enriched this year by the addition of 15,000 items given to UCLA by the Wellcome Trust of London. This gift was magnificent both in quality and quantity. It includes particularly outstanding of sculptured pieces from the South islands, such as Borneo, New Caledonia, New Ireland, Admiralty Islands, New Guinea, and New Zealand; the Pacific coast of British Colombia and south Alaska; and Nigeria, Ghana, Dahomey, Cameroons, Gabon, and the Congo. There are rare Benin bronzes and ivories, a large series of Congo ivory carvings, regalia in gold from a former African king, beautifully carved wooden vessels, and hundreds of Ashanti weights. Although the largest part of the extraordinary collection concerns the ethnology of Negro America and Oceania, there are also many New World pre-Columbian artifacts. These include Mexican and Peruvian ceramics and stone Peruvian textiles, and gold from Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Peru. Other items in the ethonological collection are weapons from China, India, South Smerica, Persia, and Bronze Age England. There are also tools, musical instruments, marionettes, costumes, and religious articles. The gift of the Wellcome Collection has been marked by a special lecture series on " Individual Creativity and Tribal Norms in Non-Western art, " along with a major exhibition of in the Sir Henry Wellcome Collection at UCLA " in the Dickson Center Art Gallery. The first lecture, given by Dr. Robert Goldwater, the director of New York ' s Museum of Primitive Art, dealt with " Judgements of Primitive Art, 1905-1965. " It presented a broad survey of the role and freedom of expression of the artist among American Indians, African and Pacific Island cultures. Later speeches concerned " The African Artist " (William Fagg of the British Museum ' s of Ethnography), " The Concept of Style in Non-Western Art " ( Dr. A. A. Gerbrands of the Rijksmuseum voor Volkenkunde, Leiden, the Netherlands), and " Abatan: A Master Potter of the Egbado Yoruba " ( art professor Robert Thompson of Yale University). Also in the series were Ignacio Bernal, the director of Mexico ' s Museo Nacional de Antropologia, who spoke on " Individual Artistic Creativity in Pre-Columbian Mexico " and Dr. Jean Guiart, of the Institut Francais d ' Oceanie, Musee de l ' Homme, Paris, who discussed " The Artist as an Individual in New Caledonian Society. " The lectures with a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Daniel Biebuyck (professor of anthropology and curator of the UCLA African Collections) which summarized and appraised the issues and discussed in the series. The Museum has worked under very difficult conditions. Unless it is preserved, primitive art deteriorates very quickly. Much of it is exposed to the weather, and an article such as an Alaskan totem pole will rot away in 75 years. As most African and Pacific Island is wood, it does not last long: there are almost no objects in the Museum more than 100 years old. Thus, rot only is space for and storage an important factor in the planning: temperature and humidity must also be provided. The Museum intends to promote the study of arts and other artifacts as one of the most avenues leading towards an of man. It is felt that an appreciation of works of art of cultures other than our own can best be attempted by studying these artifacts in the context of all non-visual arts (poetry, dance, music) of the culture from which they arose. Through the further relating of the arts to many other expressions of the culture—be they cultural values, religion, philosophy, language, or social structure—many of the unnecessary barriers disciplines should be broken down. The Museum thus endeavors to stimulate a more humanistic outlook. Wellcome stated in 1928 that he did not want a museum with exhibitions merely " designed for popular entertainment, to gratify those who wish to view strange and curious objects. " Instead, he desired an institution which would educate the public, be a training ground for students with fullest educational facilities, and strive for the promotion of scientific research as one of its first aims. These have been the UCLA Museum ' s policies since its inception. Collecting activities have centered on areas and objects, peoples and cultures of primary concern to the art, classics, dance, and drama departments; the Latin America, Near Eastern, and African Studies Centers; and to the Institute of Ethnomusicology and the Folklore and Mythology Center. " Back Where The Action Is " , the theme of UCLA ' s 21st annual Spring Sing, emphasized the Sing ' s return to the UCLA campus after a twelve-year stint at the Hollywood Bowl. The Spring 1966 Sing was dedicated to Football Coach Tommy Prothro for his outstanding contribution to UCLA. Ray Coniff acted as Master of Ceremonies for the Sing held in Pauley Pavilion while the impressive panel of judges selected Reiber Hall Mixed Chorus as the 1966 Sweepstakes winner. Taking first place in the individual divisions were Alpha Gamma Omega in the Quartet division, Phi Epsilon Pi in Oddball, Kappa Kappa Psi in Chorus, Hall in Mixed Chorus. " Fred " in instrumental, and Alpha Chi Omega — Sigma Chi in Novelty. The " Chocolate Chips " of Sproul Hall were awarded the Sophomore Sweetheart trophy for the Most Original presentation. Mardi Gras 1966, celebrating its Silver Anniversary in late April, upheld its claim of being the " World ' s Largest Collegiate Activity. " With more than 60 food, game, and entertainment booths, KMPC broadcasting from the field, two concerts, and 36 hours of plus Kiddie Day, it again ensures funds for Special concerts highlighted the evening activities. Friday ' s was for folk-rock enthusiatsts, and featured groups like The Association, while on Joanie Summers entertained for the fourth year. On the Mardi Gras field, fun and excitement ran rampant. Rides like the huge ferris wheel and the Terrifying Trabant from Germany, plus the year ' s new attraction, the Himalaya, provided new heights in thrills. At the same time, there was plenty to eat. The International Students ' prepared foreign food along with exotic Other groups served dishes including pizza, tacos, egg rolls, hot dogs on a stick, cotton candy, popcorn, bananas. The carnival element was especially evident in games: the Panda Pitch, Milk-Can-Knock-Down, Balloon Pitch, Add ' em Dart, Horse Derby, and Strength Tester. Hollywood ' s influence was felt in he marriage and kissing booths, Bowery Show, Las Vegas games, Drunken Wheel, and other off-beat amusements. Although participating campus organizations competed fiercely for 16 trophies awarded to the best attractions, there was an aura of cooperation surrounding the entire event for the proceeds go to University Camp for blind, diabetic, and underprivileged children. Anticipating the appearance of Little Richard, Bill Cosby. and the World Yoyo Champion, 3000 wild people were packed armpit to armpit at the Kelp Rock ' n Roll Dance. The gyrating Go Go girls were enticing, at least to the Kelps, who thought that the best looking girl in the show was the one who wasn ' t. With the theme of " El Monte Legion Stadium Comes to UCLA, " the four bands proved to be wild and gross. Certainly the Kelps were wilder than any of the greasers El Monte ever saw. Both the bubble gummers and the regular people from UCLA agreed that the Kelp R ' n R was an experience not to be quickly forgotten. AN EXPERIMENTAL ARTIFICIAL LIMB Absalom Kaplan came to the United States nearly four years ago to learn about biotechnology and its relationship to electronics, his primary field of study. At UCLA Abe walked into the middle of a continuing project dealing with the development of a simple and useful control system for a false limb. Under the direction of Prof. John Lyman, and with the financial aid of various Veterans Administration grants, the division of the College of Engineering has dealt with the of providing veteran amputees with new methods of gaining operant control over their environment. In describing his relationship to the project, Abe says " I ' m only helping here; I want to learn about the methods and I often make suggestions— but mainly the experience of working with electronics in research is the important thing. " Like the other workers on the project Abe shows no interest in developing their control system for commercial production. " My problem here is to investigate the means of controlling movements electronically. This is strictly research and for me this is more interesting; it ' s figuring out the unknown, this has worth and challenge. " Watching Abe at work, however, is nothing like listening to him talk about the project. He sits in the midst of six and a half foot devices, transitorized computing and controlling mechanisms, and a whirring fan needed to keep the equipment cool. Near at hand is an open cage containing a motorized arm perhaps the forerunner of false limbs able to grapple with the environment. Abe sits on a low stool, cabaret style, then he ' s pretty much on his own. His task is to move the arm— in sometimes what appears to be random motion, at other times going for a steel-ball target. Whatever the task, the speed and accuracy of his movements are recorded then analyzed by the project ' s psychologist, Lou Lucaccini. Though the has been running well over three years it is still in the initial stages. The control system now in use was designed by Amos Freedy who had the task of making three sets of muscles do the work of six. Normally the body has a set of extensor and flexor muscles to move a single limb to and fro. However by a process of ingenious switches using positive and negative relays Freedy concocted the first (what appears to be) usable system. When Abe is harnessed up for an experimental run he looks more like an aftermath of an operation than a living test model. There is a strap around his upper chest with a metallic loop over his right breast. Another, thinner strap loops his right shoulder. A third loop encircles his abdomen just above the waist. This third attachment has a large navel-contemplation device which jumps and sways as Abe directs. A conventional false limb is merely a large harness which the amputee to use the muscles of his arm and shoulder for maniplulation. However the problem which the VA faced was with soldiers who had lost their arm at the shoulder and therefore had little or no musculature left of practical use. The necessity of an externally powered arm was obvious. The present system seems to be of practical value. Abe reports that " It was not hard to learn how to use it effectively. The main problem was the effect which breathing had on the transducers. Normally a person breathes with his chest— but this effects the direction of the arm ' s movement. So it took me about two days to learn how to breathe with my stomach— then the rest was easy. " Moving the arm is accomplished by mechanically opening, and cutting out switches with movements of the three straps which hold the transducers. A quick movement moves the limb in one axis while a slow movement moves the arm in the same axis but in the opposite direction. During Spring vacation many students try to forget school. For several months these students have spent their time within a single department, ignoring the rest of the campus and virtually unaware of the University of California as a whole. Some UC students however turn their attention during Spring vacation to the UC system in an attempt to integrate various disciplines as pursued on the several campuses. This year the traditional All-U Festival was held as two separate programs: the Student Art Festival, held at Riverside and the Graduate Academy, held at UCLA. Experimental in nature, these programs were each designed to take advantage of the itself rather than to serve as a showcase for the work done during the year at individual campuses. Thus, the Student Art Festival had no theme and no performances. Several guest speakers directed workshops. Films, which were shown at midnight, served as departure points for many of these Among the guest speakers was Theodore Weiss, who will be a poet-in-residence at Princeton next year. Michael Miller, Director of Drama at Claremont and headed for NYU ' s new art next year, also participated. Artist Conor Everts, also a guest at the Festival, provided guidance for student participants. The Graduate Academy also departed from past form. With the theme of " The Revolution in Morality, " this meeting featured discussion groups on such topics as " Personal Morality, " " Morality and American Business " and " Morality and the University. " The new format of the Graduate Academy was designed to interest student representatives from a broad spectrum of graduate study on each campus. A few days spent looking into the ramifications of each topic were sufficient to stimulate interest. Many of the students returned to their own to further reflect on these questions. INTRAMURALS It ' s So Appealing... That Batchy Feeling C.C.C.P. Here We Come County Line to Trestle ... Bruin Country UCLA appeared to have a repeat national champion in its 1966 volleyball team. Coach Al Scates ' team was unbeaten in match play and won the early-season UCSB invitational tournament. The Bruins were led by 1965 All-Americans Ernie Suwara, Larry Rundle and Steve Burian and new stars Greg Miller and Mike Allio. Whereas rugby formerly was an off-season " home " for many Bruin footballers, a new breed of non-footballing dedicated ruggers— among them Terry Stewart and Dave Berardo were the stars of the 1966 Bruin squad. UCLA compiled a 4-4-3 record in ' 66, highlighted by a victory over USC and a hard-fought 8-8 tie with Stanford. Some gridders did play, among them Kurt Altenberg and Byron Nelson. Golf Coach Vic Kelley was optimistic about the chances of his team after it recorded a fine 34-20 win over Cal State, Los Angeles at Bel Air CC. Top Bruins in pursuit of the little white ball were Terry Hartshorn, Mike Higgins, Dave Ledbetter, Brian Kaufman and Rafael Villegas. UCLA ' s crew program appeared headed for another banner year under coach John Bisset, as the crew recorded top marks in intersquad races. Top oarsmen included stroke Alex Spataru, Alex Seitzler, Jeff Brennan, Dick Hamnquist and Rob Buffum. " Pitch carefully and carry a big stick " was the by-word of the Bruin baseball team as it established itself as a solid contender for the California Baseball Assn. championship. The Bruins were hitting brilliantly, and it was only a question of how well the pitching would hold up, as they posted a mid-season record of 21-11. In league play, the Bruins boasted a 3-0 record with two wins over Santa Clara and one over Cal, as UCLA and USC appeared the teams to beat in league play. Bruin batting stars at mid-year included diminutive second-baseman Charlie Petrilla (team batting leader at .367), first baseman Rick Ganulin (.327 with 8 home runs and 29 runs batted in), third-baseman Fred Dyer (.287 with a team leading 35 runs batted in), out fielders Ray Arrington (.303), Chuck McGinnis (.295) and Don Manning (.315), and shortstop Mike Chase (.292). Catcher Carl Swindell complemented this group well with his excellent play. Ace of the pitching staff was senior Bill Brasher, who owned a 5-1 won-lost record and a 2.67 ERA at mid-season. Other Bruin mound dependables sophomore Rick Kester (2.87 ERA), and junior Roy Coston (6-0). How well these men would do, and how much pitchers like Dave Tallman, Denny Hoeger and Bob Wiswell would help out, would determine UCLA ' s in ' 66. Lacking the great depth of the 1965 championship team, it was apparent before the season was very old that UCLA ' s tennis squad was going to have to lean heavily on two stars in 1966. Those two were U.S. Davis Cuppers Charles Pasarell and New Zealand ' Cupper Ian Crookenden. With filling out three of the next four playing positions on the team, UCLA had another talented squad, but one which would likely be hard-pressed to beat out USC for conference and national honors. A sign of things to come was USC ' s total domination of the Southern California Intercollegiate Championships. In dual play, UCLA was 5-1 by the end of March, with victories over Redlands, Cal State-Los Angeles, Brigham Young, Cal and Stanford and a lone loss to the powerful Southern All-Stars. Rounding out the first six were sophomore Tom Karp, senior Elty Brown, and sophomores Eddie Grubb and Jeff Brown. All signs were pointing to the greatest track and field campaign in school history as Coach Jim Bush ' s squad pushed into the middle phase of its season. After just four weeks of the season, three school had been set and a fourth one equaled, as the Bruins appeared reasonably certain to score the first dual meet victory in history over USC and then go on to honors in the AAWU and NCAA championships. One of the school records was established by team star Bob Day, already holder of UCLA marks in the mile and two-mile, in the 5000 meters. In the Easter Relays at Santa Barbara, in the 5000 meters (13:44.2). Other records were established by pole vaulter Marc Savage and high-jumper Mike Weinrich ). In the opening meet of the season, the crack Bruin 440 relay equaled the school record of 40.8. Source of the optimism about the Bruin season was the presence of several top stars on the team and excellent team depth, as shown in early-season dual meet victories over San Diego State (119-25), State (96-49) and Brigham Young (99-46). Bruin running stars included Norman Jackson and Tom Jones in the sprints; Bob Frey and Don in the 440, Dennis Breckow and Les Fendia in the 880; Day, Geoff Pyne and George Husaruk in the distance races; Ron Copeland in the high hurdles and Roger Johnson in the intermediate hurdles. In the field events, Bruin standouts, along with and Savage, included shot putter Traugott Gloeckler, discus throwers Jack Hale and Dave Weber, javelin men Dick Selby and Egil Sundbye and long-and triple-jumpers Doug Olmstead and Alan Bergman. As the year comes to its end eighty-six to fifty-nine, USC this is our town! CARDIO VASCULAR RESEARCH LABORATORY An icy fluid surrounded the muscle, freezing its movement. at last for examination was living motion—part of a By using fluid cooled by liquid nitrogen which instantly freezes the heart muscle, researchers in UCLA ' s Cardiovascular Research have been able to stop contraction at any point in the heartbeat. By immobilizing the tissue, the Laboratory staff, under the direction of Dr. Wilfried F.H.M. Mommaerts, has been able to pursue orderly study of the changes in high energy compounds which are at work in each movement of the heart beat. The chemical components which perform the contraction are with the help of fireflies. Enzymes which make the firefly visible at night are added to the muscle compounds. These enzymes react with the chemical fuel of the muscle, ATP (adrenosine and give off light. The higher the concentration of ATP, the more light the firefly enzymes give off. Myosin, the giant protein molecule which, combined with the actin molecules, does the actual work of contraction, is added to the solution. As the ATP combines with myosin, and the fuel is gradually consumed, there is less free ATP in the solution and the glow from the firefly enzymes By using refined methods of chemical analysis and a sensitive photometer which can record small changes in luminosity as the fuel is consumed, the researchers can study the rate of chemical fuel consumption in the various muscle components. Through use of a " thermopile, " an instrument designed to measure the minute temperature changes occurring when muscle cells receive an electrical signal to contract, doctors measure the release of energy. This is because the amount of heat produced in a muscle is a quantitative measure of its total energy output. The amount of chemical energy released in the moving tissue may be by use of the thermopile and the chemical analysis of the " frozen twitch. " Before the muscle contracts, there must be a link to the electrical signal. While sodium is necessary to " trigger " the heart beat, it is calcium which reacts with chemicals inside the cell to cause the contraction. Through use of an electronic analyzer on isolated strips of turtle heart, the strength and duration of the electrical signal have been measured and compared with the strength and duration of the following succeeding contraction. Though the tissue with a liquid bath of varying amounts of chemicals, researchers control the materials that go into the tissue during the contraction process and measure the chemicals put out by the tissue. Adrenalin, a hormone which stimulates the heart beat and plays a role in the changes of heart performance caused by exercise and emotions, is being studied to discover how it acts on the heart muscle tissue. Because turtle hearts beat at a much slower rate than human hearts, adrenalin can be injected into the heart muscle at the split second between the time the electrical trigger is set off and the moment when the mechanical contraction takes place. By this method the action of adrenalin on the trigger mechanism is studied to determine how it starts the heart beat—either the flow of calcium into the cell or in some other way. The strength of the heart beat and the electrical activity of its cells are primary goals in the search to understand heart failure. They are studied by inserting a minute tube in the blood vessel of the papillary muscle. This muscle is one part of the heart which can be dissected easily by circulating a blood substitute, composed of essential salts in water solution with blood sugar, through the tube. Furthermore, using radioactive isotopes, the flow of calcium may be studied: this ties in with the investigation of the link the electrical signal and actual contraction of the muscle. Although heart failure is being studied as a part of the research on disorders of fuel consumption, the strength of the heart beat, and the electrical activities of its cells, most of the laboratory ' s work is done as basic research. Basic science needs to be developed for it is usually completely unpredictable when and where its applications will take place; furthermore, scientific research is part of the spiritual and intellectual culture of the nation, like music, literature, or painting. Thus, the Cardiovascular Research Laboratory ' s program is basic science. As new plateaus of broad insight are reached, applied science gains a new base of action and basic science is able to search further and find new problems. The Laboratory ' s work has a bearing on heart disease, for function cannot be understood, let alone corrected, when the normal is not understood. As this plateau has not yet been reached, there are no medical applications which at present follow directly from the laboratory ' s work. However, if work is not now, there will never be a plateau later. In the meantime current insights are being provided in the present background of scientific medicine. In the words of Dr. Mommaerts, " The growth of medical knowledge may be compared to the growth of a tree, and its harvest of fruit. The roots, trunk, branches, and leaves represent the structure of basic science which grows according to its own pattern. The tree may take years to mature and if properly, the fruit will appear. So it is with the harvest of research. " Peter Atsatt, one of over 100 Ph.D. candidates at UCLA finishing their studies this year, is doing research in Botany and Plant Biochemistry on the relationship of root grafting to variation in Owl ' s-clover flower populations. The plant Orthocarpus, more widely known as owl ' s-clover, is a common sight in southern California fields and a regular " participant " in wild flower Its grassland habitat, normal green foliage and growth in large numbers gives no indication of its existence as an obligate root parasite. OWL ' S CLOVER Soon after germination, the roots of Orthocarpus seedlings come into contact with the root systems of surroundin g plants and grafts are formed between the various roots at most points of These root grafts are formed between individuals as well as with other species which results in a complex network of root systems. Owl ' s-clover cannot grow and compete successfully without grafted even though Owl ' s-clover contains the chlorophyll. They are dependent on other individuals for some part of their metabolism. Using tracers such as dye and radioactive in his research, Mr. Atsatt has demonstrated that water and carbon compounds are from the host to the parasite and from parasite to parasite. The genetic code of a plant is organized through a long process of selection so that interaction with a particular environment results in a efficient individual. If marked or mutations from this optimum occur, the individual will be less able to compete vigorously with the environment and plant populations and thus will produce fewer offspring or none at all. These members of the population are at a selective disadvantage and are usually lost. of Orthocarpus, however, are not independent and it is highly probable that those Orthocarpus plants which suffer genetic accidents are compensated by crossfeeding from grafted partners. A mutation or gene which alters or blocks the formation of a specific necessary compound may have little effect if the deficient plant can obtain that compound from another Owl ' s-clover plant or some other host plant. It is in this manner that many kinds of genetic differences could be built up in the population. Such a hypothesis may account for the unexplained patterns of morphological variation found in populations of root-grafting plants. In an article written by Mr. Atsatt for Science magazine, June 28, 1965, he dealt with another interesting aspect of this common but intricate plant. If a seed of Orthocarpus is by natural means to a new site, will a suitable host plant be present? If there is a suitable host, Orthocarpus will be able to grow but will be unable to reproduce without the of a second Orthocarpus. Owl ' s-clover must receive pollen from another Owl ' s-clover in order to set seed. Establishment of a new colony away from the original population would be more if at least two seeds could be transported together. In his field work, Mr. Atsatt has found that the seeds of many of these parasite plants are surrounded by a loose net which is easily pierced by bristles and hairs of the appropriate size. He has found Orthocarpus seeds attached to the dandelion-like seeds of a host plant. This combination of host and parasite seed is very light, can be blown long distances, is fairly securely attached, and fulfills all the for the establishment of a new population. Top L. The center flower shows the pattern of inheritance obtained by crossing Owl ' s Clover with Indian Paint-brush. Top R. Variation in flower shape and color due to hybridization. Middle R. Normal varia- tion within a typical population. Bottom R. Geographical variation within a single species (left) Bakersfield, (middle) Mohave Desert, (right) Tucson, Arizona. Although a normal appearing, flowering plant, individuals Owl ' s Clover are nevertheless oblibate root parasites. Its roots graft with those of neighboring plants which provide nutritional elements necessary for its prolific existence. UCLA ' s environment is diverse education is the unifying element. The educated student is no longer the only goal of the university, but the creation of the aware being, " the whole man. " UCLA provides an environment for this creation. What must be shown to give an accurate impression of the environment of UCLA 1966? Several academic projects described in detail obviously give a better picture of the intense scholarly climate and excitement of discovery than photographs of department chairmen. Sports, intramural and intercollegiate, are the largest single activity terms of participation outside of the classroom. Many students today are actively participating in the political arena. Although the number is small compared to the total population, through sheer energy and belief they have a considerable change in the campus environment. Others are involved in community service projects. They have contributed to those less fortunate even though thousands of miles away. India, Tijuana, and Macon, Georgia are also part of UCLA ' s environment. In these locations an intellectual environment exists which can stimulate and excite, conversely UCLA ' s architectural is dull and stagnating. In a university of this size true is, many times, lost. Problems of bureaucracy abound, but it is the free, open, haphazard and unique approach of each student which gives him the maturity, knowledge and to enjoy and participate in the adventure of twentieth century life.
