Lockhart " think continually of those who were truly great. Who, from the womb, remembered the soul ' s history Through corridors of light where the hours are suns Endless and singing . The names of those who in their lives fought for life Who wore at their hearts the fire’s centre. Born of the sun they travelled a short while towards the sun. And left the vivid air signed with their honour”. Stephen Spender. What is your ambition? What do you hope to do with your life and what is the record you wish to leave behind you? Somewhere in your years in College you have had to ask yourself this question; sometime throughout these days you have had to sit down with yourself alone with this problem. In that place and in that hour, you have reflected on the ultimate mystery of life itself, on the fact that you exist, and are called on to live out a life in a world and at a time not of your choosing. Surely you would be less than human, if in your search for an answer, you have not been tempted to assume that you and you alone, give meaning to your own exis¬ tence and hence the only concerns that have validity are those which serve your own ends, your own comfort and your own security. ...principal ' s message On the other hand I do not wish to believe that it is possible for anyone to pass through the halls of United College without being stirred and challenged to think, as Spender suggests " of those who were truly great”; those whose inner spirits were quickened to a consciousness of the nobility and grandeur of human existence. It would be sad to assume that a person could share this adventure of learning and allow the aspirations of the human spirit to be smothered under the traffic of learning. If this has happen¬ ed we have indeed failed you. The information that has been imparted to you here in the College in any area of human thought and endeavour is really only incidental. It is important but not crucial. You can gain all this from any good library. Our hope is that you have been forced to probe deeper than the level of knowledge and that you have been awakened to an awareness of a quality of life that belongs to greatness; a greatness that is born of the consciousness that no life is mean¬ ingless and that each is called to a fulfilment that will issue in the enrichment of our common existence. One could express no higher hope for this generation of students at United College than this might be truly said of you ”Born of the sun they travelled a short while towards the sun, And left the vivid air signed with their honour”. 4 ...honourary editor ' s message Work on Vox ' 61 began about one year ago. Capable leadership by the Editor and tireless effort put forth by Vox staffers have combined to develop detailed and imaginative plans into this comprehensive report of the year’s activities at United College, 1960—61. Vox ' 61 reflects a marked trend of recent years to be a kind of college annual. Editors of recent years have expressed concern about this trend. Perhaps, they have suggested, Vox is not really fulfilling the primary function intended by its founders: Vox was established as a publication devoted to significant writing and comment by College students and faculty. Certainly the emphasis placed on this im¬ portant function of Vox can be no more than a reflection of the measure of the creative activity within the College. There is therefore some satisfaction in noting that contributions to Vox ' 61 ' s photography, art and literary competi¬ tions were more numerous than is usual. Those selected for awards and publication suggest the continuing high calibre of creative works sub¬ mitted by students of the College, and hold the promise that United College graduates will continue to make significant contributions in fields of Canadian art and literature. Work on Vox ' 62 has already begun. The Editor hopes to significantly increase the em¬ phasis on creative work. We hope that your summer plans will include time for writing, art and photography. We hope that you will plan to enter these works in Vox ' 62’s creative art and literary competitions. Ron. J. Riddell 5 ...united’s history Mr. Alfred D. Longman has been an instructor in the Collegiate Department since 1924, and was Dean of Men ' s Residence from 1926 to 1948. Presently, he is compiling material for a history of the College. He has written the following thumbnail historical sketch of United College for Vox. Manitoba was a province scarcely a year when its name became enshrined in the first Presbyterian college to be built in the Canadian west. When Manitoba College opened on Novem¬ ber 11, 1871, it was not the first school to serve the Selkirk settlers, since Anglican Parish schools, improvised class-rooms, and mutual assistance arrangements, had supplied facilities until near the mid-century. After these Scottish pioneers had waited forty years for a Presbyterian minister, Reverend John Black’s arrival in the settlement in 1851 gave a tremendous impetus to educational and church work. However, it was not until two decades later that Reverend George Bryce direc¬ ted the establishment of the new college. It first opened in the Kildonan Parish School but after several weeks moved to the upstairs of Donald Murray’s house. In 1872 it moved into the siding-covered log building erected by the settlers. In 1874 the college moved into Winni¬ peg where it occupied a house at the south-east corner of Main and Henry streets for one year. It then purchased Franklin House at the north¬ west corner of the same intersection and used it for six years. In 1881 four acres of land at Ellice and Kennedy were purchased as a site for a perman¬ ent home. Opened in 1882 and doubled in cap¬ acity in 1892, the new building housed Manitoba College until it was purchased by St. Paul’s College in 1931. Wesley College and the provincial Univers¬ ity received their charters in the same year, 1877. Reverend George Young had opened the first Methodist church in 1868 and the Wesleyan Institute, a primary and secondary school, in 1873- The College opened its first classes in Grace Church in 1888, but moved the next year to 12 Albert Street. One year later it occupied a brick house at Edmonton Street and Broadway where it remained until 1895- Hopes for a larger and permanent location materialized in January, 1894, when plans were approved for a $75,000 building to be built on the city block between Spence and Balmoral streets and lying north of Portage Avenue. This is the structure, opened on January 6, 1896, which today houses Wesley and Graham Halls. Long and careful study led to the amalgama¬ tion of the two colleges in June, 1938. Since that decision the unification and consolidation of United College has progressed steadily. The two extensive building undertakings of the past decade seem to have created in the colleg e a sense of stability and in the community a sense of confidence. At today’s high point in the development of the College, well-wishers will pray that the three chosen mottoes, " Floreat” - " Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas” - " Lux et veritas floreant”, portend a continuation of the search for truth and the yearning for maturity and fulfillment. 6 t REVEREND DOCTOR WILFRED C.

The Collegiate elections were held in October and, after a week of hard campaigning, Dennis Eyolfson was declared president and Roberta Gunn co-ed rep. Soon after this the Initiation Dinner and Dance was held in the Fort Garry Hotel. This was a great success, as usual, with Mr. Ruther¬ ford acting as emcee at the dance. November brought U.C.’s biggest formal, Snowflurries, and it was more successful than ever. A " coke’’tail party was held for Col¬ legiate students before the dance, and we all attended as a group afterwards. Shortly after this, with its carols, colorful lights and, of course, exams, came Christmas. A most impressive candlelight service was held and it was well attended by Collegiate students. Caroling was also held, with an accompanying accordian, in Tony’s each noon hour for a week before exams. At the beginning of the new year many new activities were started. The pins and rings, ordered in December, were distributed. Soon after this the college sweaters arrived. With the new year came an increase in sports activ¬ ities. The boys’ basketball team won their first game under the direction of their new coach. The inter-room hockey commenced, as well as girls’ volleyball and badminton. To bring January to a close, the Collegiate held a Toboggan Party and Dance. They also participated in the Co-ed—Men’s Club Tea on January 19. Collegiate did very well in debating this year, giving the college a real challenge. Inter- room debates were also organized. The drama club has contributed greatly with its presentations at Stunt Night and at Theatre Night. The Student Council this year has tried hard to cope with the problems arising, and has been very successful. The members of the 1960-61 Council have presented a gavel to be used by future councils. This past year has been most eventful, with its happy moments and its sorrowful ones. There have been successes and failures, all of which have contributed to the memories which we will retain of this year. 17 freshie week There occurs around United College every September a week full of fun, friendship and fes¬ tivities. To fully initiate the freshman into United College, and more important to make him become a part of college life, several activities are planned - each to welcome the freshie to United. This year was no different and after the hustle and bustle of registration we found in rapid succes¬ sion, queens, dances, receptions, pep rallies and hazing. At the Freshman Reception held in the library, freshmen, seniors and professors witnessed the crowning of Miss Wendy George, our Freshie Queen. Seven o’clock one morning in Convocation Hall, the scene was of a few hundred freshmen dressed in the costume of the day, ready to perform for their " friends”, the seniors. All day the hallowed halls echoed with the singing of the Monotones, auction- ning of box lunches and the shouting of college yells. The freshmen pledged their loyalty to the College, and their " devotion” to the seniors. A most appropriate climax to Freshie Week was the parade. Surrounding a flower bedecked float, later to ‘be given first prize, were a few hundred United College freshies who were proclaiming to the on-lookers what they had learned in one short week: ”Raise the roof for old United Tell the world that she ' s the best.” Front Row: (L. to R.)

Our first week was spent in a riot of activities acquaint¬ ing ourselves with the College. The Freshie Dance helped students to get to know each other and by Freshie Day, September 23, the seniors had marked their victims. The day was honored by girls in pyjamas and boys in diap¬ ers. However, the tortures of this day were borne stoically by all, including Freshie Queen, Wendy George. Many freshies sold toilet paper in aid of the Building Fund, while others pushed peanuts with their noses down the Bay’s clean floors. Departing from the tradition of placing last in stunt night, First Year’s brilliant presenta¬ tion of " In the Beginning” rated second place. Again displaying their talents later in the year, they excelled in Theatre Night with the produc¬ tion " Sorry, Wrong Number”. The Student Council, elected soon after the term began, was ably led by president Ernie Lawrence. At the time of elections most of the nominees were unknown. However, the electors voted wisely and the Council turned out to be the best possible. As Christmas drew near First Year crowded libraries in a pre-examination panic. After the Christmas fallout a whirl of social activities 1 ;gan again. Our spirits were revived by a frosty toboggan party at Lockport and then a well-attended dance in the gaily decorated New Tony’s. All the events of the year speak well for First Year. Students were diligent, enthusias¬ tic and unusually talented. 19 Front Row (L. to R.): Anne Murray, Carol Adams, Bill Rennie, Ailsa Lawson, Sherril MacDougall.

Missing: Ted Stebbing, Sandra Matheson, Fran Price. ...second year report Second Year, again the largest with approx¬ imately three hundred and sixty-five students, was termed a successful and rewarding session by all concerned. Many of our science students like United College so much that they signed a petition in favour of instituting Third Year Science at the College. The first term commenced with the election of fifteen capable students to serve as the council representatives for the year. November 10 was a day never to be for¬ gotten by second year students. It was climax¬ ed by the winning of Stunt Nite with the skit " A Herrimewsical”, a take-off on Merrihew’s Book Store ( ' ' Air-Conditioned Books”) and the Gilbert and Sullivan opera ' ' H.M.S. Pinafore”. This was a resounding success and an apt re¬ ward to those who worked so arduously on the skit. Our prime social function was the custom¬ ary year party. It consisted of tobogganing at the Riviera Park followed by a dance in New Tony’s. The event was both a financial and a social success. Second Year came up with surprisingly good debaters this year. Most of the debaters spent hours in preparation, and their efforts were re¬ warded as we emerged as finalists against Col¬ legiate. It was an honour for our students to be able to hold their own against the more exper¬ ienced third and fourth year students. Second Year also had top participation in in all of the College activities. Several stu¬ dents attended the Canadian-American Confer¬ ence at Macalaster College. Members of our year were in the Monotones, the Chapel Choir and the Cheerleaders, and we had many visitors to the Second Year Table during the Men’s Club—Co-ed Tea held in January. Frequent contributions were made by our year to The Uniter, especially by one notable man of letters. In sports, we boasted six-man football stars, badminton and table tennis champions, and several students participated in basketball, bowling, swimming and curling. 21 Front Row: (L. to R.) Marg-Ann Muirhead, Lynne MacDonald, Kathy Gordon, Peter Herrndorf, Valerie Kenny, Helen McIntosh, Marlyce Kroeker. Back Row: Colin MacArthur, Ian Martindale, Bruce Holliday, Dave Fox- Decent, Jack Perles, Garth Erickson, Marvin Steen. ...third year report Endowed with the greatest enrolment in College history, Third Year presented its first formal endeavour of the year at Stunt Night. The skit, a parody on Canterbury Tales, in¬ volved the talented efforts of many people and a great deal of hard work. Despite the riotous rehearsals and the bad luck suffered when Mr. Marvin Steen (a ' method’ actor) broke his ankle in the spirited finale and was laid up for months, it was a spectacular performance en¬ joyed by all and will surely provide many pleasant future memories. The close of the first term was the occa¬ sion for a gala celebration, held mainly to antagonize the Junior Division, in the form of a roller skating, dancing, and tobogganing party. However, due to unprecedented difficulties, there was no roller skating because the floor had not been put down, no tobogganing because the liability insurance had expired, and no dancing because the record player didn’t work. The highlight of the evening involved crashing the fourth year party. After being royally en¬ tertained for twelve minutes, the police came and made several arrests in conjunction with the stringing up of a certain amusement park operator. In athletics, members of Third Year made important contributions to football, track and field, hockey, curling, and the volley-ball league. The most noteworthy athletic achieve¬ ment was the winning of the Junior Women’s Badminton Championship by Judy Borland. As always, Third Year made a good show¬ ing in Debating this year. One of the many wins and probably the highlight of the year came when Miss Vasey and Miss Kroeker proved " that boys like smear lipstick better than nonsmear.” At Snowflurries this year it was the beaut¬ iful Third Year candidate, Miss Amantea, who was chosen Miss Snowflake. On February 17, during mid-term break, we all gathered in New Tony’s for our second term party. It must have seemed rather strange for those who were curling in the varsity bonspiel to take a night off for " A Trip to Hawaii.” The night was complete with Polynesian food (ac¬ tually Chinese food in disguise). After this gala wind-up, we all noticed that essays were due and exams were drawing nearer, and hurried off to do a few short weeks of studying before the finals. 23 Front Row: (L. to R.) Sandy Rumble, Helen Demchuk, Helene Schroeder, Shelagh Reid, Bruce Gunn, Brenda Clarke, Lorna Cheyne, Marnie Park. Back Row: John Proudfoot, Hugh Moncrieff, Ernie Hasiuk, Jon Swanson. .fourth year report Contrary to tradition, Fourth Year did not distinguish itself in inter-class competition because its individual members were such in¬ dividuals. It did, however, take a leading part in the affairs of the College at large. Fourth Year members of the UCSC were instrumental in the taking of an important progressive step towards the solution of the perennial UMSU - United College problem. The much needed revision of the Awards system also was directed by members of the class of ’61. For the first time in years, a float from United College won first prize in the Freshie Parade. The credit for this goes to Ernie Hasiuk. Our Senior Stick demonstrated his versatility as M.C. of the UMSU Winter Carnival Sno-Ball. Jim Ryan and Heather Sigurdson had major parts in the UMSU Glee Club production of " Plain and Fancy.” And at Stunt Nite our effort took third place. Fourth Year made a considerable contribu¬ tion to the more intellectual activities of the College. There was a large fourth year repres¬ entation at the Macalester Conference, and our year sent three of the five U.C. members to the NFCUS Commonwealth Conference. In debating we had the distinction of never defaulting a debate even if we had to be satisfied with third place. The first social event held by the year was a very successful corn roast - without corn(?) - in early October. We wound up first term with a party in Tony’s. However, the peak of homo¬ geneity was reached on G-Day. Despite the fact that we " redeemed the tradition of Gown Day” somewhat against our natural inclination, fourth year ingenuity showed itself in small ways, to wit " Jago’s wagon” and an intriguing diversion at the Blood Pep Rally. At a party that evening, amazing and hitherto untapped talent was unearthed. Who will forget " Wild Bill Hiccup?” Grads’ Farewell, which we attended with hopes that we trust were not in vain, was the finale before the beginning of the grind. Class valedictorian was Paul Fraser. The two offi¬ cial house parties held after the dinner and dance proved to be a lively and successful innovation. We relinquish, then, the trophies and other trivia to our avid emulators and delegate our authority to those who will inevitably and irrevocably follow. 24 Front Row: (L. to R.) Jim McKay, Don McNeill, Bud Bewell, Marilyn Hunter, Cliff Deeton, Harry McPherson, Cas Moreman. Back Row: Fred Markowsky, Jerrie Common, Bob Hamlen. .theology report The activities of the fall term began with a retreat at the Prairie Christian Training Centre in Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan, September 13th to 16th. The theme of the discussion was the Book of Revelation, with Reverend Bewell, father of our High Priest, as guest speaker. In October, S L Philip Ross, Chaplain P. R.C.A.F., spoke to the Theology Society concerning the I960 General Council of the United Church of Canada. Later in the month, we were addressed by Dr. David Summers of the Religion and Labor Committee, who provid¬ ed some insight into the role of the Christian Church in the problems of labor-management relations. In November, Cliff Deeton and Fred Mar¬ kowsky presented papers on the Christology of Mark and Paul. At another meeting Mike Quigg- in, Senior Stick, spoke to the theologues con¬ cerning student council relations, and the func¬ tion of Theology in the college life. Stunt Nite followed soon after and the less said, the better. A party in New Tony’s on the evening of December 16th terminated our first term activit¬ ies. Bud Bewell and Hugo Unruh represented our society at the S.C.M. conference in Montreal during the Christmas holidays. " Communica¬ tion” was the theme of this year’s conference. The main concern of second term activities was the arrangement of visitations to four Man¬ itoba presbyteries by four teams of theologues. This visitation was aimed at acquainting indiv¬ iduals in these presbyteries with the needs of the church in regard to the insufficient number of ministers. We hope and pray that our work will bear fruit. 25 JOHN KENDLE: Winner of the I.O.D.E. Post- Graduate Scholarship for Overseas Study John is an M.A. student, majoring in His¬ tory.

LLOYD AXWORTHY: Intell¬ igent, intellectual (he thinks) and unintelligible (we think), Lloyd will argue uninhibitedly on any topic.

MARVYN COLEMAN: Marvyn spent his first two university years on a track scholarship at Aberdeen Christian College, Texas.

LYNNE CUNNINGHAM: Active in Alpha Delta Pi and the Stu- ent Academic Committee, Lynne specializes in common room seminars and political science essays. She also par¬ ticipates in curling, water ski¬ ing and swimming. She intends to go on to Education, but a mansion, a mink coat, and a trip to the 1964 Olympics are the secret goals of her life.

Every man must speak for himself, directed by what he believes in; however, it is my hope that we share some of the same thoughts on this day and that, were you in my place you would say some of the same things. While a valedictory is a farewell address, it must also be a greet¬ ing to the future. The past can be seen by all of us in clear perspective, the future is en¬ shrouded with the garment of hope and anticipa¬ tion. The past is safe and important; the future is uncertain but filled with greater rewards. On an occasion such as this, one tries hard to be original; but one soon finds that there are many things that must be repeated with renewed sincerity. It is indeed an honour for me to be addressing this distinguished gathering on this memorable occasion, and I thank you for the opportunity to do so. I feel a sense of duty and responsibility to my grad¬ uating class and to the college that has taught us the meaning of these two words. For the past four years we have been pro¬ vided and have provided ourselves with a foundation; what remains is the task of building the intellectual and practical " house” that we ourselves must live in. We have had the ben¬ efit of being able to weigh and judge for our¬ selves the arguments, decisions and mistakes of those who have gone before. Until now, we have re-acted to the thoughts and actions of others. Now we must act, now we must consol¬ idate our own thoughts, and now we must pre¬ pare ourselves to be judged by those who will come after. One thinks back and remembers the events of our stay at the college with mixed feelings and emotions. In some cases these events have become part of a successful advance, and in other cases they have become part of failure. At the last we find ourselves in the position of taking stock in ourselves, when we have for so long narrowly evaluated and been so critical of those who have tried to convey their ideas to us. We have learned to become critical, but have we learned to become constructive? We must all ask only ourselves this question. Most of us came to this college in search of something. I wonder this evening how many of us have found what we have been searching for? The answers to this question are as num¬ erous as we are. Some of us have succeeded only in finding ourselves. Socrates said " Gnothi Sauton.” Mark Twain long after said " Know thyself and the rest is easy.” To know oneself completely, is to trust oneself com¬ pletely, and, " Self Trust is the first secret of success.” We today are part of the cycle of human consciousness and achievement. We have scratched the surface of man’s history and are aware of man as we believe he first was. We are aware of man’s struggle to secure his lot by joining in the nation state and of his further struggle to secure his lot within that state, when its values have been questioned by mem¬ bers of other states. We have read, and are seeing in our contemporary world, the wonders and horrors that the development of science 39 has brought, to the point where life itself is threatened. Our situation today is unique; we are at the point now when war, which was once the ultima ratio of human relationship and the arena for deciding differences is fast becoming obsolete; for war can no longer ' decide’. We have seen the world become richer, yet poverty and starvation still exist. Men in some parts of the world are surrendering their birth-rights in order to eat. The situation has arisen whereby the struggle to win men’s minds initially de¬ pends on the struggle to fill men’s stomachs. What is the answer to this dilemma? I be¬ lieve that it lies with man himself; in you and in me, and in our willingness to see ourselves ready, able, and willing to help other individ¬ uals whom we must not neglect, but respect because they are individuals. I hope that we will not maintain that the world owes us some¬ thing, but rather that we owe something to the world. We must cast out fears and rely on the inner resources that we all possess. We can all do better than we think we can. With this extra effort will come a serenity of spirit and a peace within ourselves. But this cannot be achieved until we have become the masters of our own actions and attitudes. To let another determine these actions and attitudes is to relinquish control over our own personality, which is ultimately all we possess. The only true possession is self-possession and self- possession is self-discipline. If we approach the problems that will inevitably face us with the discipline of seeing things as they are, not as we think they ought to be, or would like them to be; and if we are versatile enough to be able to discern the woods from the trees and are capable of appreciating both, we will more than likely triumph in a tough situation. James Joyce has said, " Time is, Time was, but Time shall be no more.” At various times, and perhaps this time in particular, we would all like to stop life in its tracks and hold on to what we cherish, to keep change away from us and all we love. Change, however, is as inevitable as the turning of the seasons and the tides. To try to keep it from our door is to try to shut out life itself. For everything that is alive is in constant flux, and if we fail to change, we fall behind in living and as a re¬ sult our spirits age. The truth is, that all of us are concerned with the hurt of failure even in small things. As a result, many of us have focused too much on failure and have not looked long enough at success. There are times when even the brightest talent can be dimmed momentarily if this consciousness of competence is lost. Criticism depresses us more than it should, because it seems to confirm our own secretly shaky opinions of ourselves. As we leave the college we will be so much richer if we realize that, " Nothing is at last sacred but the in¬ tegrity of your own mind.” While " Know Thyself” is on one side of the coin, the other is to trust in the wisdom and integrity of others. The knowledge we have gained in the past four years is indeed small. We must not make the mistake of using this small amount of knowledge as " ear-plugs” to keep out further learning. If we attempt to fortify ourselves upon our limited learning, we will tumble from our seemingly secure position. Let us ever remember that we can learn some¬ thing from every man, and let us treat every man, as we would have him treat us. Perhaps the greatest lesson that we have learned from those who have diligently taught us over the years is respect. Respect not only for them as men and women and scholars but for their convictions and for their willingness to listen to our convictions. They have res¬ pected us as responsible persons, and it re¬ mains for us to prove ourselves more fully. As we leave an old home, and old friends to make new ones, I am reminded of Edgar’s comment in King Lear, " Men must endure their going hence even as their coming hither - Ripeness is all.” We have been ripened by the light of faith - faith in God, faith in life, and faith in ourselves. The coming quest will not be easy - but then we do not want it to be easy. I hope that we will be aided in this quest in that we have come to Know Ourselves and to believe in ourselves. Ralph Waldo Emerson has said, " To believe in your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your own private heart is true for all men - that is genius.” 40 ...theology graduates BUDD BEWELL: Son of a United Church minister, Budd attended school in Saskatchew¬ an and Manitoba and received his B.A. at United. Budd has been employed as a commer¬ cial fisherman in Northern Saskatchewan and as a line¬ man for the Manitoba Tel¬ ephone System. In 1958, he married Betty-Lou at Flin Flon.

Fred spent some time with the R.C.A.F., in private business and with the Saskatchewan Department of Natural Re¬ sources. He is married and has four children: two in high school, one studying architec¬ ture, and one in nursing. DON McNEILL: A native Man¬ itoban, Don received his Jr. Matric in Teulon.

Later, Don attended the West¬ ern Bible College and then be¬ gan his service in the United Church which resulted in Theological studies at United. Don is married and has five children. 41 ...grads ' farewell Grads Farewell, which is an occasion for the graduates to reflect upon the years at United a nd to speculate on the future, was held in the chandeliered ballroom of the Fort Garry Hotel. Professor Hall- stead, the honourary president of Fourth Year, offered the challenge that we know ourselves and not to become hapless victims of a materialist society. He urged us to dedicate ourselves to a profession and occupation in which we might never lose sight of our beliefs. Paul Fraser, Valedictor¬ ian, echoed the thoughts of each graduate as we bade a farewell to United. Graduating students who achieved recognition in fields of executive, athletic and service endeav¬ ours were commended by Dean Eagle. We witnessed also the symbolic and significant exchange of sticks. To Joe and Margaret Ann, we wish good luck and best wishes. As we leave United, armed with a degree and many memories as well, saying farewell to pro¬ fessors and friends, we say " thank you for a rich and rewarding four years. Lynne Thompson 42 olive oris ...literary LITERARY JUDGES: Professor Hallstead Dr. Judy Professor Reimer FIRST PRIZE W inter Wind SECOND PRIZE Untitled Poem WINTER WIND The stinking streets and rotting houses pass, As shuffle shuffle he walks in too big shoes; A cold wind blows the stink into his face, And crawls insinuating through his clothes. Tonight alone he smells it - sees the wreck Of empty dreary city, of his life, And under chilly stars the hostile wind Blows back the veil, the veil of painful years. The stars were brighter then, as were the dreams Of youth and love and promise, shattered now, And memory’s bitter ache cuts through his heart, Distorts his thin-drawn mouth and stings his eyes. " For I am nothing, nothing, and my life Is nothing; tears and years are props for fools, And even hope is hopeless, just a word, A word that’s puny, sanctioned by the smug. We live like beetles in the filthy earth, And crawl and crawl ’til we are squashed and die.” The mocking stars are quiet; the veil descends, The wind has numbed his mind and again with " Now’ And he shuffles and crawls along in too big shoes, Across the futile city’s filthy heap. Keith Block Perry Nodelman 45 The wind intrudes into the warm black room, Pushes aside the curtains, ripples the shade. He feels its fingers on his soft, fat neck, Heaves to evade the touch and wakes up cold, Staring dry-mouthed at the formless dark. She stirs, he curses, rolls himself erect, A soft hand at the silky, open collar, And reaching for the window he recalls His sleep, the dream, the fingers at his neck. . . The sky is sharp and bright with stars - no moon, And as he looks for miles into the past, He fills with terror, almost screaming fear, Which clutches like the wind around his heart And tears the strength from his shaking, flabby legs. Before he was rich the stars had shone this clear, And he’d been happy before he was rich and fat, And hated for his ruthless power and wealth. " I jump at the dark, and fear the end of light, The end of money, laughter, friends - the end When I am nothing and people laugh and scheme.” He smashes out the offending wind; she wakes, And trembling - not from cold - he crawls away To his rich soft bed, to lie and think of death. He lowers his book and listens to the wind, Which plays and dances at the walls and door. Lazily he butts his cigarette; Snuffing the blue-grey wisp that clouds the room. He rises from his chair to stretch and yawn, And crosses stiff-legged to the window, peers Out to watch the wind and trees and sky. " The stars are suns and there are billions here In this small corner of space and time alone, And we are just an infinitesmal speck.” His intellect alone can grasp the words, His intellect makes him a larger speck And yet " infinitesmal” lingers, prods. " The largest star is Alpha...”, he is calm; His theories give him worth, and they are true, And " Mind” makes " God” a rather foolish thing. But still, the stars seem very far away. . . And we are just an infinitesmal speck. . . And insect doubt begins to buzz and probe. " What if our lives are meaningless, I say if. . . But the closest thing to Absolute is Mind, What else can be more meaningful than this?” He sinks into his large, relaxing chair, Picks up the book, and opens it again, To read what men - now dead - have said of life. 46 He leaves his work and makes the street a crowd To walk with him to home - the empty house, The silent home where laughter used to ring When sadness all was short - when she was there, And waited for him, windy nights like this. The empty rooms - no longer waiting now. The months of pain and grief, despair and hate Are passed; the quick-torn loss he now can bear; And when the ragged ends sting like the wind, A curse no longer makes the pain increase. The stars are blue-white, icy, awesome points Of vibrancy, whose depths caused terror once, And in spite of needling cold they seem a smile - " For ' I have overcome the world’, for I Have overcome. . .” and where before, the wind Said " Why” and left his mind and heart in shreds, Tonight the Answer drowns the noise, and he Is not alone to face the empty blocks. Beneath the stars, assurance wraps him ’round, Just like his wind-whipped breath beneath the stars, And the rooms are not as empty, nor as cold. Keith Black Arts V UNTITLED POEM The moon is a woman, Frail, and pale, Unearthly pallor-stricken, And competence concealed. The moon is a mother, The mother of the sun, And, hidden by his glowing growing greatness, watches while he does his work by day. Seeing him grow tired, And sensing his fatigue, She lets him rest, Performing tasks he has forgotten till tomorrow, Shining in the glow of his achievements In her weak-strong humble-proud motherly way. Perry Nodelman Arts II 48 COMMITMENT You pray - your hands are clenched in strong and neutral longing; you love in bonds, you kneel in unknown rage, and yet your joy meets sometimes the old gods. Then the flameeyed Goddess meets your strong intentions; the oneness is of such a unique splendour, you wish you’d die and never rise to feel the pasts again and force and fear Then - lover - you commit yourself; you pray and honour and you die. Hans-Peter He Arts II It’s there the unspoken desire to climb the mountain and laugh around the world, the consuming need for something that whispers far off beckoning and calling (as the Lorelei did); what it is I do not know but it is there waiting for the lonely moment and then swiftly it pounces on the defenceless sense, the conscious mind is vanguished and I am again in the grip of its terror, its penetrating grasp; this desire is old, timeless, it has always been and always will be; it’s there when the sun is bright and painfully cheerful in a jewel blue sky, and it’s there when a soft rain wraps the world in a grey shroud; it’s always there and though I run I still hear it calling, this undeniable longing for the unknown, this desire to take life in my hands and walk the world ' s rooftops; no matter where I am it has been there before; it is forever and whereever I am its dimension encompasses me; there is no escape and no fulfillment, only the penetrating agony of the unknown the keening call of something greater yet small enough to originate in the depths of my being, and all the while I run through life knowing I am caught within it, but maybe some day what it is will be clear and there will no longer be the petal tearing of unfulfillment. Valerie Isaac Arts II 50 ODE-IUM Ode to you, my schooldays friend- You who believing made me not believe. You, who wore the hairpins And went without the lipstick (Saintly stating it was against your religion) - You, who were entranced by television And went without the movies (Saintly stating it was against your religion)- You, who smiled at spurious suggestiveness And went without the schoolgirl seductions (Saintly stating it was against your religion) - You, who were evangelistic and inspiring, Inspiring all to to wholesome, cleaning atheism- You, who were companion of conformity And huddled with hypocrisy - You, who believing made me not believe. Owed to you, my schooldays friend.

Valerie Isaac They fled after all the long years of colonial occupancy and the spark of freedom in the tinder of oppression burst into impartial flame searing all who tried to extinguish it with the cold water of rational action. 52 My heart is the wind running through the world searching and crying in the darkness, running on and on until there is no breath left; run, night wind, run on for there is still hope and somewhere there are rabbits running down the milky way of laughter and light; run on, strong wind, run on not soft and cautious but wild and black and maybe tomorrow you will find the sunshine.and morning music. Valerie Isaac 1 WANT IT SO The streets were cold, and unaccustomed was the pain of winter, and all the masques were unaccustomed too. I courted without pleasure these familiar pasts. And now I say that it is you to whom I pray and it is so, I want it so, it is my choice. My smile is the reflection of your joy. We live this unique finding to a monument. I want it so; I speak to you, so that your eyes may answer and forgive. Hans-Peter Heeg 53 T.V. ADVERTISEMENTS By the walls of the Acropolis, in far off ancient Greece, Stands a panhellenic pitchman, trying to sell a golden fleece. Does he sell it? But of course he does, a golden fleece you see, Was a status symbol sans egal, five hundred years B.C. A Grecian worshipped pagan gods; satyrs, nymphs and elves, Now Video has risen up, to save us from ourselves. For is not a T.V. tower, that shimmering spire of grace A temple for the faithful, a panth eon for a race? Man must have his outlets, T.V. fills a vital need, But must we let these ad-men stain our minds to sooth their greed? Phallic symbols, wombs on wheels, through one Cycloptic eye Are forced upon the bourgeoisie, enticing them to buy. If every ad produced a sale, if every ad created, Seduced one man and made him buy, the market would be sated! But wait! Do not discount the ingenuity of man, To bleed his fellows he’s devised the ' Easy payment plan.’ Perhaps I overstep myself, revealing age old lies, " Where ignorance is bliss,” ’twas said, " ’Tis folly to be wise.” So fill your minds with worthless junk, and leave your T.V. on, But ignorance it is not bliss—it is oblivion!

I’ll say he was ugly,” the old man said as he tipped his chair back against the weather-beaten side of the store. We had just stopped off here for a cold soft drink and were standing around in the shade of the sun when his words caught our attention. Thin, weather worn to a deep brown, with a deep voice broken by age, he made an intriguing picture. We moved up close as he continued, " The first time I saw him was on a cold, wet day one spring. He was a sorry sight, soaked to the skin, his hair plastered with mud, and trembling with the cold. ' ■ ' There he was,” the old man said, pointing down the road, ' ' standing all alone at the side of the road. He was one of the most sad sights I ever seen.” He looked up at the crowd quizzically and asked, ' ' What could I do? 1 just couldn’t leave him. So I picked him up and tucked him inside my jacket.” He laughed silently at the recol¬ lection. ' ' My wife gave me ' what for’ for that,” but you could tell by his voice that it had not bothered him any. " Well sir,” he said drawing on his short, stubby pipe, " well sir, you should have seen the commotion when I brought him into the house. The wife sure scolded me, but I noticed she put some milk on to heat.” " He wasn’t much to look at, let me tell you. Fact is, as I told you, he was as ugly as they come. It wasn’t until some time later on that we figured that he was part wolf and part dog. But ugly as he was, he sure was cute. And the way he acted. He lapped up his milk, then, just like he belonged, walked to the corner of the stove,-we had a wood stove then, - and lay down between it and the wood- box and went to sleep.” The old man stopped to scratch a match on the bottom of his chair and relight his pipe. After puffing a red glow into his pipe he picked up the thread of his narrative. " Now, where was I? Oh yeah! Well, we decided that come morning we’d get rid of that animal. Come mornin’ though it was still rainin’ and no matter how hard the missus’ tongue, her heart is in the right place. When I went to put him out she said that you couldn’t put nothin’ out in that rain. So I shrugged my shoulders and put the dog back behind the stove. When Timmy got up, - he was four and a half then,-any plans the ' old lady’ had went out the window. You know somethin’,” he said, chucking down deep in his throat, " I don’t think she really minded.” " Those two! That kid and that dog, if you can call him that? You never saw anythin’ like it. Take to each other! You’d a thought they was brothers.” The old man paused. Everyone waited while he shifted, then he started again. " I’ll tell you what I mean. One day Spook, that’s what we called him ’cause of the way he moved around, chewed up a pair of slippers. The ' old lady’, she said he had to go. There wasn’t any changin’ her mind either. Timmy was five now and the two of them were inseparable. I went out to the yard and took Spook by the scruff of the neck and dragged him along with me. Tim¬ my stood in the doorway watchin’ us, and there was tears in his eyes, and I swear there were tears in the eyes of that animal too. They kept watchin’ each other until we were out of sight. I had hitched up the horses earlier, and I put him in the back of the wagon. I took him about ten miles down the road and left him.” " Now let me tell you,” the old man con¬ tinued with a touch of pride in his voice, " that boy wasn’t spoilt. He’d been brought up right. But there was somethin’ between him and that animal. Well, even so, he went off and sulked. Didn’t cry mind you. Just wouldn’t say any¬ thing. Ate his food at supper and went to bed. The walls in the house weren’t thick, just heavy cardboard paper, and that night the wife and I couldn’t sleep. She said it was the heat, and I agreed with her. We could hear him cryin’ to hiself. You can guess what a relief it was when Spook turned up next mornin’. I was goin’ out to the barn to milk the cows and there he was, standin’ lookin’ at the window of the little fella’s bedroom. You could have knocked me over with a chicken feather! I didn’t know what to do, but I did know I couldn’t take him away again. So I just called to him quietly and led him into Timmy’s room. He settled himself at the foot of Timmy’s bed and went to sleep. You’d’a’ thought nothin’ had happened. He made me think of the first time he came into the house, just goin’ to sleep like that. Of course he’d been pretty tuckered out. It had been a long walk.” The old man paused to knock out his pipe against the side of the chair, then continued as he put it into his pocket. " We were in the kitchen when the boy woke up. I’d expected a real hullaballo, but I should have known better. You know what happened? He came out of the bedroom with that ugly mut at his heels, and you know what he said? He said, ' Spook must be awful hungry, can he have some milk?’ Just like that! Can you beat it, eh?” 56 The old man tilted his chair forward and said, " There was somethin’ between those two even then.” With this he got up and shuffled down the highway, using his cane to help him¬ self along. We took our ' pop’ bottles and placed them in the wooden case at the side of the store. I turned to one of the loungers and said, " That is really something. A dog that is part wolf for a pet. Do they still have him?” He did not say anything, but an old man that was sitting beside him on the store steps replied, " That all happened thirty years ago.” " But,” I answered, " he talks like it hap¬ pened only a while ago.” " It did, for him. Would you like to hear the rest of the story,” he asked. " Thanks no,” I said, then changed my mind, " yes, yes, I would like to hear the rest of the story.” I pulled the old man’s former seat around and sat down. " Well, let’s see. He said the boy was five when this happened. It was a year and a half later, if I’m not mistaken, that some people built a house across the road from them. That wolf-dog never bothered anyone, but like he said, that animal was ugly. Whatever kind of dog was in him had made his face shorter than it should be and square. He was a brownish- white that was all mixed up with gray. And big? By this time he was about one hundred and fifty pounds, and on his hind legs he stood around six feet tall. That boy never went any¬ where without him. They used to hitch him up to a sleigh that had a box built on it and he’d pull that kid all over the place. Well, as I was telling you about these new people, the minute they came there was trouble. Their kids teased Spook, and when he chased them their parents would complain to the Mounties. Then one day the oldest kid hit Timmy. That wolf-dog didn’t chew him up, but he did knock him over and stand over him until that kid was absolutely frantic. The Mounties came a few days later and told the old man that he’d have to get rid of that animal. The old man didn’t do anything, hoping that it would blow over. The Mounties came back and said if he didn’t do away with that animal they’d have to. So the old man took him way out into the bush and left him. It was no use. He just came back. Three times he took him and left him. Three times he came back. Finally the old man decided he’d have to shoot him. He took him out into the bush with him, but that wolf-dog wasn’t like other animals, he seemed part human, and he knew something was wrong. He lit out and away. The old man got one shot away. He saw some blood on the ground, but knew it was no use trying to follow him in the bush. Besides it was getting dark, so he went home. It wasn’t a very happy supper that night.” " The next morning when they got up, things were pretty strained. The boy went off to school, it’s right over there,” he said, point¬ ing at an old ramshackle building that was boarded up, " the same as every day. But at four o’clock he didn’t come home. By half past four his mother was frantic. Just then the ' school marm’ that was here at the time called to ask how Timmy was. His mother didn’t know what she was talking about and wanted to know why he hadn’t come home. The teacher told her that he hadn’t come to school and she’d called because she figured he was sick.” " Everybody in town helped search for him. We all knew what he looked like. He was blond and very fair. All the women used to make a fuss over him. He’d been wearing a red cord¬ uroy jacket his mother had made, and breeks. We found his tracks going into the bush about half the way to the school. About one hundred yards in we found his lunch pail. We knew it was his right away because it was a bright red tin one that his parents had ordered from Eaton’s mail order when he started school. It had been his pride and joy. We followed his tracks for close to a mile until we ran into a clump of spruce trees. He was there. With that ugly mut of a wolf-dog curled around him. That animal wouldn’t let anyone close. He’d snarl and howl, but he wouldn’t get up. One of the men was carrying a rifle. It was over quick. One shot from about two feet away.” He paused and sighed deeply at an old memory and continued, " It was rough. The boy was frozen to death, but through no fault of that animals. He’d been trying to keep him warm and safe. How they found each other? Nobody will ever know.” " It ' s a funny thing. When we went to take Timmy away his fingers were clenched so tight in that animals fur that we had to cut the fur away. The old man came back for that animal the next day and insisted that they be buried side by side. The minister wouldn’t let him bury an animal in the church yard, so he buried them just outside it. You’ll be able to see the markers when you drive by. The old lady died soon after that and since then the old man has lived all alone.” He got up to go, then added, " During the winter when it’s early evening, and it’s cold and clear out you can hear a wolf howl some- wheres around the graveyard. It’s funny too. We haven’t had wolves around here in years. Makes you wonder.” Abruptly he went into the store, shutting the door behind him. Wm. D. Valgardson 57 LAST CLASS What made it somehow unusual was that they had been close friends up until that time - through high school, the off-hand junior years of college, and the hard work when they entered Honours English. Now in Graduate School they knew each other well, although they saw each other less than before. Workmen were lazily attaching sets of coloured lights around the dormitory doors, as they came in to have a cup of coffee before their one class of the afternoon, and they joined the five other members of the class in the cor¬ ner farthest from the undergrads. Paul lit a cigarette and ran his fingers over the corners of his notebook. " Well, another hour of undiluted boredom from the class yklept Middle English.” " Yeah.” That was usually enough to kill any lively discussion, and on this last day of classes before Christmas, everyone looked ready for a holiday. Paul forced himself to think of the class - its necessity for the future, when both Gerry and he were teaching. " Tell me, are you all as lost as I am in this? Cramer may have intelligence, but he can’t impart any of it to me.” Gerry smiled. " We’re all lost, old boy, but the book says we learn, so we must bear our cross gladly.” Everyone was quiet for a moment, and then Paul started thinking out loud. " I think we should tell Cramer we’re having trouble. Maybe he’d buck up. It’s not as if we don’t work at it. This one course is ruining all the rest.” " How would you go about telling him?” " Why don’t we just tell him we’re lost. You know - ' Excuse me Sir, but we’re having trouble,’ sort of thing....” Paul’s initial enthusiasm began to wane, and he remembered that Cramer’s word carried a lot of weight with the Dean. And he also sensed a change in the feelings of the group; as if he had made a social blunder. Gerry looked up, and smiled with his mouth. He spoke very quietly. " Paul, I sometimes think that you are too damn honest to get very far in the academic world.” He stopped, and seemed both relieved and sorry he had spoken. However, he had started. " You always try to give your impressions on an essay, or in a class. You don’t spend enough time learning the professors, old boy. Cramer would not be very pleased, to say the least....” " But how else are we ever going to get through?” Paul felt as if it was six against one, and Gerry was not helping. He had used to back Paul up, usually. The bell rang, and they moved toward the class. Everyone was settled when Cramer came in, and Paul’s peculiar feeling returned as Cramer began the class. " Well, this is the last class this year, and so we’ll tie up the ends of this portion of the course today, and maybe get out a little early.” Paul looked around. The class was silent and bored. Gerry was smiling at Cramer, but he was bored. Paul opened his book and before he fully realized where he was, he had started speaking. " Sir, we - uh - I have been having a bit of trouble here. I was wondering if maybe you could - uh - go over some of the earlier mater¬ ial. I’ve studied it, but this is pretty new to us - me, and—it’s...not as easy as it - seems.” " Where are you having trouble?” " Well it’s - uh - it’s the whole course.” 58 Paul looked away, and both he and Cramer were blushing. " Well,” thought Paul, " They sure as hell aren’t bored now.” Gerry was frowning, he noticed. " Good old Paul has opened his big mouth again.” Gerry, sitting next to him, was suddenly miles away. It’s funny no one else has approached me about this. Maybe if you spent a bit more time on it over the holidays....See how it looks in January. Now getting on with the text, on page....” The class silently bent over its work. Silently, as it had remained since the bell rang. Silently watching Paul stumble along by him¬ self. He felt sick, ignorant; and yet he knew he had done the right thing. Probably the classes would improve after Christmas, because he bad hit home, but still, now he seemed a long ways away - an outsider. He remembered Gerry’s remark - " too damn honest,” and realized that even though Cramer himself knew the classes were lousy, he had blundered in his " honesty”. He visualized Gerry and he as faculty members at the same campus...and he knew " friend” was now " ac¬ quaintance”. He had broken through the phony, cheap barrier of smiling convention - and he could never hide the fact. But somehow he didn’t care. The class was dismissed early, and as Paul and Gerry walked to the parking lot they didn’t speak. There was nothing to say.

I have enjoyed this year with its many activities and its many demands; yet, I cannot help but breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the onus of responsibility now rests on another’s shoulders. This relief, this relaxation is all the more pleasant because I am certain that my successor and his Council will do a job every bit as good, if not better, than that which we have done. For, the wealth of ca¬ pable students prevalent in United Coll¬ ege has provided the past and guarantees the future with good student government and active student participation. This year has not been a difficult one for me. In addition to a Lady Stick who has been of invaluable assistance to me I was fortunate in having an efficient and responsible Council, a Council to which each of us owes a great debt of gratitude for all the time and energy which the members have spent in our behalf. At this time I would also like to thank the administration and the faculty for their willing co¬ operation, support and participation in the multitude of student activities. To the graduating class I express my very best wishes in all your future endeavours. I am sure that throughout your entire lives you will be reaping the benefits of your United College heritage. To the undergraduates I might only say that I envy you. That which we have experienced at U.C. is still yours to look forward to. Furthermore, within a very short time the new gymnasium and other new buildings will give you benefits which we did not possess. Yet, you will still enjoy, over and above this, the college spirit and the academic privileges which were ours. In conclusion, please accept my sincere appreciation for the honor which you bestowed upon me. I shall always cherish the memory of my years at United but that which will remain paramount in my mind will be the U.C. spirit, your fellowship. Mike Quiggin This particular time of year has a meaning to the graduating class which is analogous to the derivation of the month of January. January was so named by the Romans after the god Janus, who was the two-faced god. On New Year’s Eve, everyone looks back on the experiences and events of the past year, and forward to the unknown of the coming year. Although this is not New Year’s Eve, the ’61 graduating class is at a similar portal. We look back fondly on the years we have spent at United and on the intrinsic features of United which make her beloved by all her students. But at this time, we are also looking forward to a future that is unknown. However, life is so full of opportunity and promise that we can proceed hopefully into that unknown with the assurance of the firm footing that we have acquired at United. On behalf of not only the graduating class, but of the whole student body as well, I would like to express our gratitude to Mike, our prominent Senior Stick. Throughout this ’60-’61 year, everyone who has worked closely with Mike has been profoundly impressed with his level-headed leadership, his organizational abilities and his sincere and constant interest, not only in every student at United, but also in every facet of College life. I also want to take this opportunity to express personal thanks and best wishes to the members of the Co-ed Council. It is because of their enthusiasm and faithful support that the college co-ed activities have been exceptionally successful. Finally, to the undergraduates, I ask you to consider the present, and to make the most of your college years.

Some would ask, " How can a group with the title " Christian” embrace in its fellowship agnostics and even atheists?” An examination of the purpose of the S.C.M. will help answer this question. The aim of the movement is to unite in its fellowship all stu¬ dents who share its basic convictions or who are willing to test the truth upon which these convictions are founded; namely, that in Jesus Christ is found the supreme revelation of God and the means to a full realization of life. Therefore, the movement is open to all stu¬ dents. It is hoped that in such a situation, the believing student can deepen his faith and witness to it, and the agnostic can freely in¬ quire into the nature of the Christian faith. Its activities are direc ted toward this objective. What activities, then, has the S.C.M. spon¬ sored? The season began with Fall Camp, held at Belair. Our guest for the weekend was Don Wilson, World Mission Secretary of the National S.C.M. Don, a former S.C.M. secretary in Chile for three years, gave a challenging address on the situation in South America to¬ day. Don and Bruce Gunn also reported on some of the insights they had gained from the Strasbourg International Conference held during the summer. During the year, several study groups were organized; some in conjunction with the Fort Garry unit and others specifically for United, such as the one in Graham Hall. A new venture this year was a group organized with the assistance of Rev. Forsyth. This group stud¬ ied practically, as well as theoretically, the problems of the Inner-City. The noon-hour lecture series provided interesting, and often provocative material on varied topics—including, sometimes, material to discuss later at the Friday night informal Bull Sessions. These Bull Sessions were held at the S.C.M. House (the latter of Uniter fame) and any topic particularly interesting to those present was discussed. Once a month a joint session was held with the International Stu¬ dents Organization. During the Christmas holidays, several students from United attended the Regional Conference at Edmonton. Dr. de Jung of Sask¬ atchewan provided meaningful insights on the theme " Communicating the Gospel in the Uni¬ versity”. The Bible Study was led by Rev. J. Richardson of U.B.C. Each delegate came back tired but inspired. The most ambitious project of the year was the joint sponsorship with Hillel of Arch¬ ibald MacLeish’s play, " J.B.” The S.C.M. also sponsors such things as summer work projects, book displays, panel debates, etc. Thus, through these various activities, the Student Christian Movement provides an opportunity for fellowship and further, for a serious examination of one’s opinions and beliefs in the light of the Chris¬ tian gospel. Our appreciation is extended to faculty members for their encouragement and support and especially to Dr. Timothy, our faculty advisor. Shelagh Reid, President 67 (L. to R.)

Here in the province of Manitoba groups of the V.C.F. can be found functioning at Fort Garry, United Coll¬ ege, Medical College, Manitoba Teachers’ Coll¬ ege, and at all city hospitals. Those of the teaching profession have banded together and have formed the Teachers’ Christian Fellowship group. Similar groups can also be found in all the provinces of the Dominion. In view of the world-wide proportions of the group, one may ask as to the purpose of such an organization. From its beginning the V.C.F. has had as its motto, " To know Christ and to make Him known.” In view of present day events and teachings, it has been the primary concern of the V.C.F. to make students aware of the person of Christ and His relevancy in the life of an individual. It does seem that many people are unaware and confused concerning the person of Christ and His purpose in coming to this earth. Christ Himself said, M I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abund¬ antly.” In John 3:16-18, the purpose of Christ’s coming is also given in a very succinct manner: " For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life...He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” Thus it is primarily essential to know God and this through the person of Christ, for Christ Himself said, " He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.” Having accepted Christ as one’s personal Saviour, the next step is to mature through the appropriation and application of the truths revealed in the Bible. The second portion of the motto reads as follows: " ...and to make Him known.” The primary motive in telling others of Christ is fostered by a sense of gratitude in view of the suffering and shame that Christ subjected Him¬ self to, in paying the penalty of sin. " We love Him because He first loved us.” In view of this wonderful, yet free salvation, as especially put forth in Ephesians 2, love for Christ becomes the primary motive which causes one to make Christ known. Not only must the Christian tell others of Christ out of love, but one must also be obedient to the inspired command as found in Mark 16:15: " And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” In view of his love for Christ, and and Christ’s commission, Paul declared: " Woe is me if I preach not the gospel of Christ.” Because of the previous, through the media of student-led Bible studies, prayer meetings, noon meetings and socials, V.C.F. has present¬ ed Christ’s claims to the university and col¬ legiate divisions. This year the V.C.F. formed a male chorus and as a result enjoyed the privilege of supply¬ ing music for chapel services, the Tom Allan Mission, and V.C.F. functions. The V.C.F. also had the privilege of starting a sub-group in the Collegiate Department. A Missionary Seminar weekend was also held at United Coll¬ ege in February at which time Eric Fife, our Foreign Missions’ director, and Dennis Clark, our Stewardship and Literature secretary, pres¬ ented pertinent addresses based on their own missionary experience and research. Once again the challenge was given to " make Christ known.” In view of all the previously mentioned activities our thanks are extended to our faculty representatives, Professor Robson, Professor Dale, and Professor Jaenen and to our V.C.F. members and executive who all helped to make this year a successful one. William Kelsall, President 68 ...chapel Each morning from 9:20-9:40 the daily Chapel service held in Convocation Hall gives United College students the opportunity to worship before going about their daily tasks. The services are conducted by members of the faculty and student body, guests, including clergymen, missionaries, and other visitors. During the year, certain weeks were set aside: a week-long series of chapel " sermonettes” was given in the early fall by Dr. Rex Dolan of Young United Church, and later in the term our principal, Dr. Lockhart, gave a series of Medita¬ tions on his summer in Europe. A few " weeks of music” were held each term, providing worship through the meaning of music. Student soloists, the V.C.F. Male Chorus, under the direction of Neil Snider, and the United College Chapel Choir, under the direction of Filmer Hubble, rendered sacred solos and anthems as part of the morning worship, and a string ensem¬ ble with Dr. Leathers led the congregation in mornings of hymn singing. Religion and Life week was held from Oct. 31 - Nov. 4, sponsored by the Religion and Life committee of United College. Rev. Carl Ridd of Emerson, a graduate of the College, con¬ ducted the morning chapel services and held discussion groups during the day. The College was exceptionally blessed to have Rev. Tom Allan of Glasgow, Scotland, with us at 1 o’clock each day giving a series of half-hour lectures. His purpose was " to present the Biblical affirm¬ ations of the Christian belief”. The results of his mission at the College were to be found, he said, in the follow-up, for which several pro¬ fessors volunteered to counsel those students challenged by Rev. Allan’s messages and the meaning of the Religion and Life week. The annual Christmas Candlelight Service was held December 1 in Convocation Hall, beautifully and simply decorated for the occa¬ sion. The Chapel Choir sang, accompanied by Mr. Hubble on the specially brought-in organ, and the scriptures were read by Dean Tillman, Mike Quiggin and Lottie Schubert.

To celebrate the occasion, the host college, Macalester, arranged a special reunion and ball for past conferees. Perhaps the anni¬ versary was more truly celebrated by a new awareness in both colleges of the value of this Conference and a new determination to develop all the potential benefits inherent in it. After twenty successful years, the C.A.C. seems ready for greater successes. The year I960 also brought the considera¬ tion of the Commonwealth of Nations as a long overdue topic for the C.A.C. By the time of the Conference, the delegates from both coll¬ eges had studied the topic and at the Confer¬ ence, they were assisted in their discussions by papers given by Mr. Kenneth P. Kirkwood, a retired Canadian diplomat and author, Lyman Sargent and John Kendle, students at Macales¬ ter and United respectively. Even so, there were some problems in discussing the topic, quite apart from the problems of the Common¬ wealth itself. All three papers tended to treat the same aspects of the topic, a definition of the Commonwealth and considerations of its faults and future. Although the three seminars were titled: 1) The Dominions - the states in the Commonwealth 2) The organization of the Commonwealth 3) The relationship of the Commonwealth to the rest of the world, the same aspects of the topic were discussed in all three seminars. Perhaps the reason for this was that the delegates when talking of the Commonwealth meant different things even while using the same words. The Canadians seemed to think of the Commonwealth in terms of being; the Americans, of doing. Despite the problems inherent in a discuss¬ ion of the topic, the formal seminars, and even more the talk around the luncheon and banquet tables, at the several parties, and during the long train trip, seemed to give the delegates valuable insight to the Commonwealth, to the facts of political life, and to themselves. As one delegate concluded, " The Conference provided its delegates with a valuable opportun¬ ity for an increased understanding and aware¬ ness of important areas of world affairs. In addition, each participant could hardly escape some degree of intellectual development. It ought to be considered an exciting experience and the sort of thing to which every student of a liberal arts college ought to be willing to expose himself.” Jim Anderson 70 ...debating Debating at United has been most success¬ ful this year. In the inter-year league only one debate was defaulted. Competition was stiff and a three-way tife for first place between Col¬ legiate, Second and Fourth years provided much speculation and interest. For the first time in several years the ladies of United demonstrated great skills in debate. Without their help, judging and attending debates would not have been the pleasure they were. In the Dingwall Debates, United continued to do well. Unfortunately this league was not orga nized properly this year and it hindered rather than enhanced the debating at United. The Macalester Debate, held here in Winni¬ peg this year, saw Lloyd Axworthy and Joe Stern expounding the affirmative of the resolu¬ tion " that the United States be invited to join the Commonwealth.” Our visitors seemed to enjoy themselves immensely and this was natural because their victory was the result of skilful debate against two other excellent de¬ bat ors. An innovation this year, the Brandon Debate, saw the use of the " Oxford-style” of debate procedure. Three topics were prepared and the topic and side was chosen only ten minutes ahead of the debate itself. Doug McEwen and Martin Reed carried the colours for United and Professor Hallstead made the trip to aid the judges in Brandon in picking the rightful winners. No report on the 1960-61 debating schedule would be complete without plaudits to those who carried the responsibility for success on their shoulders. To the year representatives, Bill Gray, Jay Prober, Hugh Schatz, Ian Martindale and John Proudfoot goes the praise for select¬ ing capable debators, for judging debates and for sharing the responsibility of chairing them. To Professor R.N. Hallstead, Honorary Presi¬ dent of the Debating Society, goes the thanks of all those connected with debating. His counsel and wit were invaluable. United need never be ashamed of her debating prowess if she continues to have the successes of 1960-61. Doug McEwen, President, Debating Society 71 Back Row: (L. to R.)

Last spring the coll¬ ege’s administration purchased a new Varityper and printing press and this expenditure has resulted, we think, in a much more professional looking newspaper. The whole process from writing and reporting, editing, typing, setting up, and printing is done right here at U.C. Press night this year was Sunday (or there¬ abouts) and all the typing and setting up was accomplished on Monday. On Tuesday the paper came hot off the press and into the hands of the eagerly awaiting (ha!) students. In addition to the obvious improvements in the form of the paper, innovations were made in its contents. Bill Currie and George Dyck teamed up to bring us weekly sports news, while Ailsa Lawson and Rose Vasey worked on feature articles. Perry Nodelman was a regular contributor of amusing and " avant-garde” literature (?). Joe Stern and Bob Golinoski were occasional contributors and the latter was a particularly invaluable, if intractable, assis¬ tant in the mechanical production of the paper. Of course council members also appeared from time to time in our pages, especially U.M.S.U. Reps, and Sticks this year! The Uniter staff undertook a new exper¬ iment in order to facilitate the publicity of college events. The daily college bulletin of events, times, and places, was called the " Unitergram” and was efficiently and uncom¬ plainingly handled by Nancy Wells. Innumer¬ able souls attempted to deliver it to old and new Tony’s every morning! The staff joins with the editors in express¬ ing our sincere appreciation to Professor Riddell who has played the role of father con¬ fessor and just plain father to us all this year. We also wish to thank the students for their indulgence and hasten to encourage them to learn how to write " Letters to the Editor” this summer. Judy Halsey and Brenda Clarke 72 Front Row: (L. to R.)

Putting out a yearbook requires more work than it would seem and necessitates the combined efforts of many people. The photo grapher had to be willing to attend all college functions from teas to tobog¬ gan parties (including the Fall Supper Party for co-eds). Alf Goodall, with Bill Loveday’s assistance, supplied a wide range of pictures covering almost every aspect of student life. The advertising staff had to spend entire afternoons canvassing the stores, in hopes of securing even a five-dollar ad. Because of Ruth Buchanan and her hard-working staff, students will purchase Vox for approximately one-third of its publication cost. All the copy was set by a process which required that each word be typed twice, and three times if we made mistakes. To do this exacting work, the college hired a very capable vari-type operator, Mary Putnam, who exhibited unsurpassed patience to the Vox staff. the printers, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Dilz, who agreed to print Vox in the evenings so that we might extend our deadlines to include March events. Their task was further complicated by the incorporation of the coloured dividers, which we hope will prove a successful innovation. These spectacular dividers were created by our art editor, Sheldon Silvert. So much did we like his handsome cover design that we decided to abandon the traditional red and white colours. Mr. Riddell was the mainstay of our staff. He solved our seemingly insoluble problems, and judiciously guided us from what might otherwise have been drastic pitfalls. At all times he demonstrated his keen interest in student affairs by giving the Vox staff his closest cooperation. In addition, there were such students as Heinz, Gail, Marilyn and Edith, who sacrificed their time to ensure the yearbook’s success. We all hope you like this edition of Vox— and do plan to join the staff next year. After each paragraph had been painstaking¬ ly pasted down, our pages reached the hands of 73 Diane Bums ...co-ed and men ' s club Both the Co-ed Council under the leader¬ ship of the Lady Stick, Lottie Schubert, and the Men’s Club, under the fourth year president, Bruce Gunn, had ipost successful programs in ’60-’6l. The Co-ed Council began its activities in September with their Freshie Reception dur¬ ing registration week. This was a wonderful and relaxed way to introduce the girls into coll¬ ege life. With November came the annual Co-ed Supper Party which again was a great social success as it has been for years. This is a time when collegiate and university girls can meet and have an evening together Both the Co-ed Council and the Men’s Club contributed to the Christmas Hamper Project. The girls packed two hampers for needy families for old St. Andrew’s Church. Those who took part know that the value of these projects lies in its reciprocity of the advantages. In second term the biggest event of the year, the annual Co-ed—Men’s Club Tea, was a big success socially and financially. Both co-eds and men were out putting forth a fine effort. In all, the students, parents and faculty enjoyed themselves. The proceeds from this event have been added to those of last year’s tea to contribute to the College a caliphone and records. The Co-ed Ball on February 4th was a grand finale to the council’s busy year. Music was provided by Dave Jondruch and the theme was royal military, a refreshi ng change from the traditional Valentine decor. Thanks are due to Judy Halsey, the social chairman of the Co-ed Council for all her work. Our thanks go to all those on the Co-ed Council and in the Men’s Club who together contributed much to the success of the college functions this year. The Men’s Club appears to be in a period of reorientation and can become a vital function for the men of the College if given the chance. Finally, a special thanks to our wonderful hardworking Lady Stick, Lottie Schubert, whose leadership and guidance in ’60-’6l was indis- pensible. And our thanks to Bruce Gunn for his organizational abilities and advice through the past year. 74 Marg Muir he ad Bruce Halliday ...west indian activities At the present time there are approximately one hundred West India n students at U.C. representing the islands of Trinidad, Tobago, Jamaica and Barbados of the Federation of the West Indies. These students have left their Caribbean Federation to spend five to ten years in a country which in no way resembles their land of laughter, calypso and sunshine. Al¬ though the West Indian students are faced with many difficulties upon entering Canada, they have not failed to make an important and lasting contribution to the College. The West Indian students have taken an active part in almost all college activities from Athletics to Current Affairs. This past year they carried the College colours to victory in both soccer and table tennis. Moreover, they have represented U.C. well in the University of Manitoba West Indian Association. U.C. stu¬ dents, the largest and most active group, have provided incentive and effective leadership for the Association. In addition to this willingness to partici¬ pate in co llege activities, they have brought to the College a culture, an attitude, which we, in no other way, would have had the opportunity of meeting. In fact, after attending College for the last few years with our fellow students of the West Indies, a number of Canadians are looking forward to travelling to the Caribbean. It is to be hoped that the West Indian stu¬ dents will continue to encourage their friends from back home to come to Canada and to attend United College and that the Canadian immigra¬ tion laws will be such that their presence in our midst will continue to be economically possible. 75 ...stunt nite Stunt Nite is always a success and this year was no exception. Everyone involved in the " big show” huddled underneath the stage and listened expectantly to the lusty roars of some four hundred odd spectators. The actors had the priviledge of performing before the largest crowd ever assembled for a Stunt Nite in United’s history. The evening began with a rather slow ver¬ sion of " O Canada” and although many accused the Theatre Chairman of rehearsing the band at that tempo, I must defend myself in print and protest that such was not the case. The even¬ ing was handled by " Mighty Mike” Quiggin and " Powerful Paul” Fraser who, when not employ¬ ed in the pastime of losing their pants and telling bad jokes, were introducing six excell¬ ent skits performed by the four years of Arts . ..theatre nite This year, Theatre Nite became Theatre Nites. On Friday, March 3 and Saturday, March 4, some three hundred and sixty loyal friends were treated to a display of dramatic talents by students of the College. Imagination and ingenuity were the watch¬ words, with the directors and set designers making good use of the limited stage facilities. While many of the plays that were shown were extremely difficult, those involved managed to catch each author’s mood with good results. Mr. Robert Trudel, a distinguished adjud¬ icator and actor, gave a fair and constructive criticism of the five plays presented and award¬ ed the Alumnae trophy for the best play to Rae Graham and her first year cast, for their presen¬ tation of Sorry, Wrong Number. The winner of the best actress award was Dorrit Klarke for her role as Mrs. Stevenson in the same play. Perry Nodelman was awarded the best actor trophy for his portrayal of Arthur in Thornton and Science, along with Collegiate and Theology. The judges; Prof. Clake, Dr. Judy and Dr. Hamilton; after great deliberation awarded the Stunt Nite trophy to Ted Stebbing and Second Year for their excellent production, A Herrimew- sical. In the runner-up positions were the fabled fourth year and the under-rated first year skits. It is my feeling that the theatre activities of the College have shown remarkable develop¬ ment in the past few years and perhaps the reward for everyone’s efforts is to be found in the plans for the new twelve hundred seat auditorium with complete stage facilities for the proposed new buildings. I hope that your participation in Theatre will mean that you have many pleasant memories to keep after you leave the College. Paul Fraser, Theatre Chairman Wilder’s The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden. The best supporting performances were given by Joanne Amantea in the third year play, Curse You, Jack Dalton; Janet Scurfield in the second year play, The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden; and Martin Wiener in Hands Across the Sea presented by the Col¬ legiate division. Les Precieuses Ridicules d’apres Moliere and directed by Dr. Leathers, while not in com¬ petition, certainly pleased the crowd. Dr. Leather’s appearance as Gorgebus was heralded as a dramatic success and he received the nom¬ ination as the best actress of the festival, narrowly defeating Elizabeth Taylor. May I thank all the people who helped to make the evening a success - particularly Dr. Leathers, Tom Hartely, Bill Helgason and Professor Riddell. I know that all who partici¬ pated enjoyed themselves and those who came to see the productions were enthusiastic in their applause 77 .building fund Friday, December 4th, 1959, is a date long to be remembered by those who have had the privilege of being associated with United Coll¬ ege. The official opening of Manitoba and Ashdown Halls was the first step in the building of the " New United”. However, true to the tradition of United, the past is never forgotten but rather blended with the present to be the foundation for the future. When, in September, we of the Building Fund Committee extended our welcome to new students to the College, we also issued a chall¬ enge—a challenge to show your good faith by up¬ holding the fine example of those who have gone before. Many former students who supported this immense project at its origin, are not now attending the College to enjoy the conveniences and improvements brought about by their endeav¬ ours. We are proud to be able to say that by December 4th, I960, the present student body has proved itself worthy and we extend our sincere thanks and appreciation. You surely did rally to the cause. Our special thanks go to the Freshman and Collegiate Section who put forth a really tremendous effort. The publicity and support given by the people of Manitoba to our Building Fund Choc¬ olate Drive are evidence of their belief in the ideals and purposes of United College and echoes our admiration for the spirit that is " United”. We must all remember that the spirit to live on and grow must be evidenced by its students. Remembering the wonderful turnout for our Chocolate Bar Cavalcade on a drizzly, cold, miserable October 21st, I would like to add my personal thanks and hope that the future incom¬ ing students will uphold the tradition as adequately as you did. We can point with pride to the present campus and look with renewed hope to its growth in the not too distant future. To Dr. Lockhart, our Board of Regents, and all students past and present who have given their time and effort, we hope you will accept this year’s campaign as an expression of our esteem and appreciation.

Freshies who are initiated into United via residence undergo an unforgettable exercise in the cause of friendly togetherness plus serv¬ itude for those revered creatures - the seniors. This year was no exception as Freshie Week left many newcomers wondering when the in¬ doctrination and " fun” would end. However, the week came to a fitting climax as Residence made a most boisterous contribution behind United’s float in the annual Freshie Parade. Residence’s social functions commenced in October with the annual Hallowe’en Masquer¬ ade. Costumes were varied and those attending ended a riotous time with a fitting feast of chili con carne and Sparling coffee. Marie McGregor stole the show with a most realistic portrayal of " Nature Girl”. November saw Residence unable to maintain its usual high place finish in Stunt Nite due to weekend absentees. However, in true stalwart fashion, Residence warbled their merits in Convo Hall. The annual Fall Party of Graham Hall was a further event of November held amid savoury and nonchalant " Parisien” decorations in the New Tony’s. A mock faculty-student debate; tape recorded views on why the Bomb¬ ers lost; a sing-song and dancing rounded out a very successful evening. December came to Sparling and so did Santa, much to the excited glee of the hopeful residents. Roast turkey, carol singing, mistle¬ toe and dancing combined to create a very festive mood at our annual Christmas party. In January, Sparling’s annual Sparkle Prom took the spotlight as posh prevailed. Sophist¬ icated music, spicy punch and the scintillating vision of Sparling’s beauties on parade made for a most memorable event. In late February Graham Hall held its annual winter party in the form of a tally-ho. The tally-ho itself was considered a very suc¬ cessful event, but the dance in Tony’s held after it turned out to be a rather sad excuse for a party. The hot dogs were good though, and everyone was too tired to dance anyway. Residence students extend their thanks to Mrs. Simmie, Dean Stewart, and, of course, Yutta, for guiding us through another success¬ ful year. 79 • • ' II jk I 1 1 u i I. ■i ' ' ■ ' S ' l; f „■ ■■ „ » 1 w 1 f : 11 N » i - Im IP A .sports TRACK AND FIELD The College Track and Field Meet, held in September, saw Collegiate completely dominate the events. Roger Harris amassed a colossal 15 points, placing first in the 100-yard, the 220-yard, and the high jump events; and second in the broad jump, the discus, and the hop, step, and jump. Bob McWill¬ iams, also of Collegiate, picked up wins in the 440-yard and the half-mile events, plus a second in the 220-yard event. Other winners during the day among the male athletes were: John Haig, Joseph Diner, Ron Bridge, Ole Michelson, Billy Wray, and Tom Sosa. The girls’ events were dominated by Linda McMillan of Third Year who took first place in the 60 and 70-yard dashes, and the broad jump. Sherry Godfrey of Collegiate and Aldis Wengel of First Year tied for second place in the individual girls’ standings. Helene Schroeder won the ball throw and the team from Second Year won the shuttle relay. The girls of Third Year walked away with the girls’ team standing. After hostilities had ceased for the day, Col¬ legiate was far out on top with Second Year in second place. GOLFING U.C. golfers had their hour of glory on Wednes¬ day, September 28th, when the first golf tournament in United’s history was held at the Windsor Golf Course. When all the divots had been replaced, Walter Dixon of Third Year was the day’s winner with a net score of 76 and a gross score (after handicap) of 70. It is hoped that the success of this golf tournament will make this outing an annual event. BASEBALL Laughter and sore muscles reigned supreme on October 4 as the annual Student-Faculty Baseball Game was played (?). When the rosen bags were packed away, the final score was 10-6 in favour of Fourth Year. Reverend Newcombe, even with the aid of Siemens and Reimer, found himself unable to get his " special” working, and this, combined with the powerful pitching of Kelsall and Maday, rendered the Faculty stalwarts virtually helpless. The only home run came from the bat of J erry Dragen in the second inning. PING PONG At the close of the month of October, Carl Thorpe carried his ping pong paddle to the top of the Singles Table Tennis Tournament. Out of more than one hundred competitors, the final spotlight focused upon Thorpe and Les Nemeth of Architec¬ ture. Their best-of-five series lasted only three games, Thorpe taking Nemeth 21-8, 21-13 and a close 21-20. In March, Carl Thorpe and Ralph Attong brought victory again to United in the Inter- Faculty Doubles Table Tennis Tournament. Carl Thorpe and Ralph Attong: winners of the Inter- Faculty Doubles Table Tennis Tournament. TENNIS Two United students, Judy Borland and Ralph Attong, made up half of the delegation from the University of Manitoba sent to Edmonton. Judy won all six of her games, enabling the Manitoba girls to win the trophy. FOOTBALL Of course, the fall season once more drew the football addicts out of hibernation, and in true United tradition a strong six-man football team was the result. Displaying plenty of heart and just as much ability, the boys went through the regular schedule undefeated and in sole possession of first place, only to run aground in the play-off with Science. Played on a rather dismal day, but nevertheless in front of a goodly number of fans, the league leaders from United gave it all they had but could not manu¬ facture the points, the end result being 19-6 in favour of Science. Despite their one and only loss, United had one of the best-balanced teams in the league, and featured such players as all-stars Bill Lawrence and Doug Clarke. United can well be proud of their football team and the men who made it powerful: Bob Andrews, Bob May, Jack Armstrong, Don Krendle, George McKay, Harry McCrady, Fred Smith, Alan Coles, Brian Partridge, Laurie Lampert, Rolf Berk- feld, Bill Lawrence and Doug Clarke. SOCCER Another group of athletes of which United can well be proud was the champion soccer team. Drub¬ bing Engineering 4-0 in the final was sufficient to bring the honours to U.C. where they naturally be¬ long. Throughout the season our fellows demonstra¬ ted accurate passing, strong tackling, unsurpassed spirit, and were well worthy of the honours they earned. It is hard to pick an individual star with such players as: Michael Feueria, Peter Marcelline, Ken Licorish, Albert Weiss, Ian Martindale, Captain Frank Gamaldo, plus Calender, Cox, James, Sosa and Shepherd. United extends her congratulations for a job well done. 81 (L. to R.) Mario Galanti, Gary Motley, Jerry Batik, Steve Barber, Jack Crolly.

The rink was com¬ posed of lead Ian Johnson, second Doug Dunlop, third Steve Decter, and skip Zenith Glesby. But due to an unfortunate chain of circumstances the Glesby rink was unable to represent Manitoba in the Domin¬ ion Playdown. The M.C.A. disqualified the rink from further competition because one member was over the age limit due to a misunderstanding on the part of the boys themselves. Nevertheless, the U.C. rink will retain its status as Manitoba champions, and United College extends its most sincere congratula¬ tions on their victory. Still on the subject of curling, United was represented in the Port Markle Bonspiel to decide Manitoba’s representative in the Western University Playdowns, by the rink of John Hofley, skip; Orest Meleschuk, third; Dave Paton, second; Al Rummery, lead. United was eliminated from the second round round of competition by Medicine who managed ultimately to defeat Science to win the competition. SWIMMING Continuing in this prize-winning vein, United again took the men’s trophy at the University Swim Meet held in the latter part of October. In winning seven of eight events, U.C.’s amateur frogmen amassed a total of 30 points to outdistance the 23- point endeavour of second place Engineering. U.C . men have now won four years in succession. Steve Barber and Jack Crolly, with two wins apiece, paced the United contestants. Also worthy of mention are G. Motley and M. Galanti. GIRLS’ VOLLEYBALL Two teams were entered from United. Team I had a hard time pulling themselves together but Team II went through the schedule undefeated. Led by Irene Demchuk, Lynne Wood and Judy Gunn, the girls narrowly missed the championship by losing to Science in the finals. They did, however, bring the trophy back to United where it remained until the girls of Science protested. Our United mermaids gave a good account of themselves and were ably represented by Susan Buggey, Donna Chase, Val Kenny, and Judy Wick- berg. - Front Row: Ken Licorish, Thomas Sosa.

CURLING United College once more made the local head¬ lines when Zenith Glesby and his Collegiate rink captured the provincial high-school curling champion¬ ship by virtue of Zenith’s cool draw to the four foot BASKETBALL United’s girls’ team this year was coached by John Hofley. The girls put up a good fight, winning two and losing two, but failed to live up to their potential. High scorer was Pat Coleman while other stars were Irene Demchuk and Rosemary Matthews. The boys wound up their season with two wins, three losses, and one tie. HOCKEY United began her hockey with a slow start but finished strong. The league commenced in the second week of January with United’s team first bowing to Accountancy and then to St. Paul’s. Our team finally found itself and started her comeback with a victory over Accountancy and then defeated Arts in two successive games. Second place in the Senior B league, United’s team played Agriculture, winners of the Senior A league. Although our team played its best, in an over time period, Agriculture scored first winning the game 4-3- The elected captain was Jim Searle and his assistant captains were Bob May and Ross Dyker. Top scorers for United were Bob May, who had 8 goals and 4 assists, and his fellow line mate, Stan Nickarz, who had 5 goals and 5 assists. On the whole a good season, with a possibility of a better one next year!

The “Nonsuch” Carried The First Cargo Of Furs To London In 1668 the Nonsuch, a fifty ton ketch sailed from London to Hudson Bay carrying a cargo of trade goods. The fate of the Hudson’s Bay Company, and indeed, of western and northern Canada depended on the success of her voyage, for Croseilliers and Radisson had described to King Charles the wealth of furs found in the New World, but the existence and accessibility of this wealth had to be established. The valuable returning cargo was hailed with joy and the company of court Gallants who backed the adventure was incorporated, on May 2nd. 1670, as “The Covernor and Company of Adventurers of England trading into Hudson Bay.” bnifsottV 6atj dompantt.

EATON ' S of CANADA 101 CANADA’S LARGEST [CLEANSING INSTITUTE Perth ' s Medical authorities have found that one- quarter of all bodily energy is expended through your eyes. If your eyes are sub¬ ject to undue strain, your whole system carries a heavy, added burden. Even though not aware of eye discomfort, you may be depleting your physical and ner¬ vous energy. Three years between eye examinations is beyond the “safety mar¬ gin.” It is for your sake that we urge you to see your Eye Physician now. It is the only way you can be sure your present glasses are suited to your present needs. If they are not, your whole body pays the penalty, in your entire round of daily activities.
