The Associated Women Stu-
dents of UCB, while not yet an
official organization, had its first
meeting on April first.
The group elected four officers for
the remainder of the semester. The
officers are Janice Brumgardt, presi-
dent, Pat Huber, vice-president, secre-
tary-treasurer, Shirley Wright, and
social chairman, Isabel Gotori.
The Dean of Women, Miss Davis,
told the members some of the duties
the AWS had at other colleges and
would probably have at UCR. On
other compuses the AWS is in charge
of welfare projects, establishes wo-
men's honorary organizations such as
Mortar Board, and deals with matters
concerning women's organizations.

Moves To Seat
By jim St. Clair
As a result of Wednesday's
Student Affairs Council meeting,
an assembly of the entire student
body has been scheduled for
April 15th, Thursday. The pur-
pose of the assembly is to amend

representatives of the newly or-

was called to order by ASUCB
President Chuck Young. Due to
the absence of the secretary, no

Reports Called For
President Young called for reports
from several of the committees that
had been previously established.
Vaughn Blankenship, chairman of
the committee in charge of the mas-
cot contest, reported that almost a
hundred names had been submitted
for the mascot. It was his suggestion
that the mascot committee select
from these names about 25 of the
best to present to the Student Affairs
Council. he Council would then se-
lect 5 of these names to be presented
to the student body as a whole for

The Council also discussed the pos-
sibility of selecting the final slate by
April 25th in time for the open house.
No action was taken.

of his committee. They have requested

had received a letter from the Cali-
fornia Club of the same campus ask-
ing if they could come to Riverside
in May and assist the student body
here in laying plans for a big C

Vaughn Blankenship then mentioned
that maybe the affair should also in-

but Williams pointed out that the
staff of the BRUIN was nearly as
large as UCR's entire student body,
so maybe things would get out of

agreed that this would probably be

brief discussion of the coming high

one failure on a midwestern campus,
named, which sought to introduce a I
program of unspecialized liberal edu-
cation, surrounded by the usual pro-
fessional schools and professional pro-
grams of a modern university campus.
In this instance he found that the
junior jitters was especially signifi-
cant in the breakdown of the idea, so
enthusiastically conceived by presi-
dent and faculty alike.
He considered that the opportunity
to establish a unique four-year liberal
education program on the UCR cam-
pus is better because it is undertaken
within the framework of the existing
American education system and partic-
ularly because it is within the frame-
work of the university itself. his, he
explained, would give the student
with junior jitters the freedom to trans-
fer to another campus.
Hopes Cases Few
If a person suffers from an in-
curable case of junior jitters, he can
come to UCLA and get professional
treatment, Dr. Howard said.
He added that he and other well-
wishers on the UCLA campus hope
that such cases will be few.
Dr. Howard continued that the
Riverside experiment has a better
chance of succeeding because it it
better adapted than similar experi-
ments to the capacity of the individual
student and because the separate
campus will provide fewer temptations
from the illusion of practical training
which quite often is not practical at
Despite his wish for the accom-
plishment of the aims of the River-
side campus, Dr. Howard found much
to be commended in the American
educational system, finding in it a
universal opportunity for a new start
comparable to the opportunity of the
once-expanding American frontier.
Dr. Howard said, The invariable
question that's asked in America is
not 'who is your father?' but 'where
did you go to school?'

of the parliamentary straitjacket the
General Assembly placed on them.
Valuable lessons were leamed in this
process. Intimate knowledge of the
procedural chessboard is prerequisite
to any successful use of parliamentary
machinery. Our people know that now
and are thus forearmed for future
Model UN participation.
There will be future model UNs
and, assuredly, UCR will play a role
in them. These sorts of things are
immensely valuable. They are def-
initely not child's play. It is, of
course, trite to say that future lead-
ers, future activists if you will, were
gathered in Royce Hall last week but
it is very true.
Somebody has to do these public
things in a democracy and the doers
are the very people who get into
programs like Model UN. The ideal-
ism displayed in Royce Hall was
impressive, but one expects that '
active young people. Even more im-
pressive was the all around serious-
ness, maturity and real ability. It was
good to see.
It was not all business however,
There was time for play. Possibly
there was not quite enough time for
that. At least it seemed that intra
and extra delegational interaction was
really just getting interesting when
it was time to leave. But good friend-
ships were formed and possibly a flir-
tation or two initiated under the
watchful but tolerant eyes of the
faculty advisors. Those things are also

Ads Support CUB - Support CUB Ads I I C I V Lick Observotor
Student body funds are very definitely limited this year. We
started the year with some S1500 and have reduced that to a
balance of about 8200.
, The CUB has taken about S550 of that money for its publica-
tion. Still, that is not enough. It costs about S70 to put out each
edition of the CUB. If, as we hope, we put out 15 issues the total
cost will be roughly 51000. Obviously we don't have enough
money to finance the total cost of publishing the CUB and still
have any money left for other student activities.
The only solution to our dilemma is to secure a large num-
ber of advertisers.
Marilyn Merchant, our advertising manager, has done a fine
job getting ads from the stores and shops in Riverside. However,
the job is almost too big for any one individual who also has to do
If we can get about S40 per issue in advertising we can still
finance the CUB and come out every week.
However, the advertisers must feel that they are getting their
money's worth. The only way we can assure the advertisers that
they are getting their money's worth is to patronize them regularly
and to inform them at the same time that we are UCR students
who have seen their ads in the CUB.
If you would like to help the CUB continue its publication
patronize your advertisers. I -Jim St. Clair
Blankenship - The iNew Ruark?
Beginning with this issue the CUB will feature a regular
column by UCR's own rustic and sagacious Vaughn Blankenship.
Vaughnis new column, Time Out, will doubtless be the first
read and most discussed feature of any issue. We here on the staff
have long felt the need for something of this nature, and when we
got wind of Vaughnis writing abilities we set right to work to sign
him up. V
This is truly a long step forward in the direction we would like
to see the CUB go. After all, this is a student newspaper for student
consumption. We hope in timee to be able to bring you more and
more of this sort of thing-things that you, the readers, have
hounded us for from the beginning.
If you like Vaughn's new column fand Weill bet student body
funds that you willl let us know, won't you? Better still, give
Vaughn a friendly slap on the back for on the face, if he has men-
tioned you in his columnj and tellfhim how you feel.
