UY Scorn
Canadians
European students feel that Canadian students are dangerously
complacent in their sense of polities! aad civic responsibility according to a report submitted by
the Canadian delegates to the IBS
Conference in England this summer. The delegates from Europe
pointed out that the interests ef
the Canadian is bounded seemingly by his eampus social clubs,
his books, football games and
dances.
On the other hand political fever runs high in European student
groups who gather at the side
walk cafes in Paris, Prague and
.Rome to discuss Communism, Catholicism, Democracy, and Internationalism on into fhe night
They have vastly different outlooks tempered by six years in
which they have seen their ideals
betrayed by their universities and
their professors.
Ob one side, the report ooti
tinues, the student in the armlei
of the Allied nations were indifferent to politics until the shock
of war made them take a new
stock of democracy while on the
other side, the student ln Italy
and Germany passively allowed
himself to be deluded and moulded
by a nationalistic political machine
to his own destruction. Now thc
European student ls ready to i-
dentlfy himself as a communist, n
democrat, a socialist, a left wins
Fabian, etc. He knows hlo position
from hard experience and defends
it. with vigor.
Directory Sales

Latest figures of the Student

Approximately 4000 books were*

MACKENZIE HOME FROM WarMemorial Gym Drive
CANADIAN CONFERENCE   To Wind Up December 31
President N. A. M. MacKenzie returned Sunday from
Eastern Canada where he attended executive meetings of
the National Conference of Canadian Universities during
the last two weeks.
When interviewed Dr. MacKenzie stated there were four purposes for making this trip.
These (were: student exchange
between Canadian Universities, international exchange of students,
and membership in the universities Bureau of the British Empire.
The fourth reason for the trip was
to make arrangements for next
year's Conference which will take
place at McOill University from
May 22 to 24.
VETS DISCUSSED
As a member of the Advisor)'
Committee for Veterans' Affairs,
Dr. MacKenzie gathered reports on
the registration of Veterans in the
various universities across Canada.
The total number of veterans is
approximately 35,000, that Is, about
48% of all Canadian university students. Five thousand more ex-
service personnel are expected next
year.
With regard to the past performance of veterans, the President
seid ''Of all veterans enrolled so
far, 2400 have now dropped their
studies. This number breaks up
into four groups: 600 of them have
graduated, 000 were short-service
men end their allowances ran out,
600 found other employment,' and
600 failed in their academic examinations." He went on to say that
the percentage of failures for veterans is very much lower than for
non-veteran students. The consensus of opinion is that veterans are
more serious about their studies
becaute of their maturity, and
greater incentive.
Socialists Hold
First JMeet Today
At 12i20 today fhe new Bos.
ialiam Discussion Club will inset
in Arts 204.
The club desires no political ai-
filiations and pledgas itself to
study the growth and development
of socialism.

Executive—is Cliff Grw*». Vice-

That was the decision reached oVer the week-end at a
meeting of the War Memorial Committee, chaired by AMS
president, Ted Kirkpatrick-
_mssssswmmsmM—mmmmtessmsM—msmmm It was the feeling of the com
mittee that, although the drive has
been officially extended until November 29, the students could not
be called upon for any more intense effort at this time.
Wide Variety Promised
By Lynn Marshall
Plays Open Tomorrow
Variety, we are told, Is the spic*
of life and, indeed there should
be no lack of that Ingredient in
the four productions of the UBC
Players' Club being shown thu
week.
The mood ranges from ludicroui
comedy to gripping suspense as
. the plays Pierre Patelin, Solomon's
Folly, Rider's to the Sea, and The
House on Fern Road unfold before
the audience.
A newcomer to the Club—Joan
* Powell—stars as the Queen of
Sheba in the satirical comedy.
Solomon's Folly, and is supporteu
by Dick Newman as King Solomon; Arnold Watson as Sofar, a
scribe; Walter Marsh, Cecil Ryder-
Cook, Pamela Butcher, Nancy
Davidson. Vivian Latsoudes and
Rae Bates.
NEW TWIST
The old Solomon-Sheba routine
is given a new twist: "and when
the Queen of Sheba had seen the
wisdom of Solomon . . . there was
no   more   spirit   in   her"   because
she had discovered that Solomor
was not the sage he was reputed
to be, (or so says the playrlght)
and disheartened, she leaves King
Solomon and all his glory, taking
with her the scribe Sofar with
whom she has fallen ln love.
Rider's to the Sea—a tragedy by
J. M. Synge provides ample scope
for the skill of Mrs. Ivy Ralston
who has been directing Little
Theatre plays for years. Son Der-
ik, a Players' Club member, assists her in producing this drama,
considered by many critics to be
cne of the best modern tragedies.
PATHOS
Norma Fieldhouse port ray.
Mauyra. the mother, who has tc
tice the heartbreaking ordeal of
having her family one by one
killed or drowned on the coas
of the lonely Irish island. Ann
Galloway and Greta Ward as
Kathleen and Nora are her twe

is played by Murray Colcleugh.
Comedy   returns   with   the   ap
pearance of Pierre Patelin the
lawyer. Ned Larsen as Pierre dl.
covers that although he has been
cunning and, with the aid of hii
wife, Audrey Blanchard. outsmarted the Tailor—Bruce Saunders-
he In turn can be swindled by tht
sharp Shepard, John Randall.
THRILLER
For those who llxe a grisly murder, there is The House on Fern
Tload. Des Seymour as Monty, the
young dandy, is not only implicated in a murder but also convinces the wife of the deceased
Annette, played by Donna Pow
ers, and his fiancee, Blrnie Reid
that he is going to marry each of
tliem. Unfortunately for him, there
ufe a few blunders in his plans
Irobel Gould, Joanne Walker, and
Peter Hayworth comprise the supporting cast.
Theite are still tickets available
for sluWnts in the Quad. Curtain
time is 7:30 p.m. Thursday and
Friday \ nights and 8:00 on Saturday foir specially invited guests.
SNOW FOOUNG
Calamity—even  If it entails u
car breakdown in the snow—re-
fused to ,dfusjt ths rasmbef* jrfj,
student car chain Monday morn-
inc.
When the car driven by Harry
Boyle, 3rd year Arts, lost a wheel
while they were bowling along
the boulevard, the men passengers
did not despair of making their
8:30 lectures.
They hauled the car to a nearby service station, and flagged e
prsslng motorist. The crew arrived at University at 8:30.
Pledge $2500
To Civk Drive
The sum of 12900 has been pledged by the Alma Mater Society of
the University of British Columbia
to the Community Chest Drive, lt
was revealed by Jerry MacDonald
president of the Literary and Scientific Executive.
The money is to come mainly
from profit made on special eventi
features, according to MacDonata.
It is an indirect donation on thf
part of the student body, payable
sometime during the year.
"We feel we mustn't lose sight
of other worthy campaigns while
conducting our own," MacDonald
stated.
Faculty OK's
Fee Increase
Official nod to the 13 increase
in Alma Mater Society fees for
students, decision handed down
at the last general assembly in
November, has been received ir
the AMS office, according to Ted
Kirkpatrick. student council president.
A letter received from Dr. N, A
M. MacKenzie expressed recognition of the motion on behalf ol
the Administration.
Changes in the calendar will be
made accordingly, Kirkpatrick
stated.
PUB MEET
There will be a short but
extremely Important meeting
for all members of the Publications Board at 12:30 today
in tho Pub office. Every Pubster should attend this meeting.
T AOT STAND
The existing Oym Drive organization will be maintained on a reduced scale so that every last dollar may be collected from the pub-
Ik, especially by students returning to their home communities
during the Chritsmas holidays.
The committee concluded, however, that the present drive activities will have to be wound up completely by the end of the year. It
was decided at the meeting that
'The utmost be done by the Oym
Committee to increase the funds
as much as possible before the
flnal closing date and that tiie sum
reached be announced to the general public."
CRITICAL SITUATION
Some time in January the group
'will meet to "examine the entire
situation about the future of the
Oym and decide on what recommendations to make to the
Trustees."
Several other decisions were
made affecting the planning for
the proposed memorial building
Those decisions call for the UBC
branch ot the Canadian Legion to
be asked to submit recommendations "as to the handling of the
Memorial theme of the UBC War
Memorial Gymnasium" and to appoint three members to sit on the
planning committee.
NO FIGURES
According to the executive manager of the campaign, Penn McLeod, lt is still impossible to give
any official figure for the amount
of money whioh has been raised,
although it ls known that the mark
i< far short of the 1500,000 objective.
At press time last night, the
workers in the War Memorial office In Brock Hall were still trying
to complete the tabulation of donations which poured in after last
Thursday's special rally and can-
van of Vancouver.
Christmas Gift
Problem Solved
Subscriptions to almost any well
known magazine that may be desired can be obtained at the Leg
ion office. The group of anonymous veterans who Inaugurated
the idea are donating their commissions to the Gym Fund.
The list, as posted in the Legioi.
office, includes about 35 magazines at prices greatly reduced foi
Christmas    gifts.
BCs Marion Albert
Wins Western Univ.
Glamour Contest
The most beautiful coed on western university campuses
is a freshette at the University of B.C. This was the unanimous decision of the judges in the final contest held in the
Armory Saturday night when they awarded the crown to
lovely Marion Albert, first year Arts student.
Most Beautiful Coed
Gowned in white crepe in Grecian mode with sequin trim, the
regal-looking "queen" expressed
surprise and pleasure at being
chosen as most beautiful coed.
Crowned by Bob Harwood with a
golden tiara donated by Henry
Birks, she was presented with a
bouquet of rcses and chrysanthemums, gift of the Saskatchewan
boys who started the contest.
Marion's facial, manicure and
hair-set was by Townhouse Beauty
Salon. The other beauties had their
hair done at the Russian Duchess.
Marion's dress was from S|pencerx.
The Hudson Bay Co. donated She
dresses for the other girls.
Radio Society members Ray
Perrault, Bob Keenan and Blaine
Leitherman broadtasted the proceedings from the stage in the
Armory over CKWX and recordings were made for later release
over prairie stations. Associated
Screen News photographed the
contestants and the newsreels will
appear shortly in neighbourhood
theatres.
Hate To Leave Vancouver
Decorating the Armory for the
contest and dance was the work
of Mamooks under tiie chairmanship of Oeorge Bloor. "This is the
largest job we've ever under
taken", said Bloor.
Victims once more of unfavourable weather conditions, tiie prairie
beauties left Vancouver by train
last night Tired after a hectic three
and a half day schedule, the girls
spent most of Monday resting in
their suite at Hotel Vancouver.
They were all of the opinion that
the contest had been well worthwhile and thought that the Judges
had made the only possible decision
in awarding the beauty crown.
Said Pat Lebbetter of Manitoba,
"We were all very happy to come
out here, and hope that we have
been able to help you build your
Gym."
''Everyone has been so nios
to us." said Norma Shearer ti
Alberta, "that we hate to leave
Vancouver."
City of Regina sent two representatives from Regina CoUege to
escort their girls in addition to the
Saskatchewan boys already on the
campus. These were Mr. Clarke
and Mr. Phillips who were ttaem
about the city by Gray OiUsapte
and several prominent
men.
U of S Charge Press, UK;
Clarify Contest Stand
Southern Prega, through the Univeralty of British
Columbia, attempted to force the Univerlaty of Saakatehewan
to enter laat week'a beauty contest, without flnt obtaining
its official conaent.
This charge was made in a recent issue of the campus newspaper, The Sheaf, end was cited
as the-main reason Is* 4ke-university's refusal to participate.
A spedal bulletin in the same
issue, headlined "Beauty Contest
A Newspaper Stunt", said the Uni.
versity of Saskatchewan received a
telegram from AMS president Ted
Kirkpatrick saying UBC had "accepted" their ''audacious challenge"
for a beauty contest
"Student officials here had made

Fall Ball Earns
*4500ForGym
Proceeds from the Fall Ball,
held at the Commodore Cabaret
Thursday, November 7, have exceeded $4J00, according to BUI
McKay, committee chairman.
"The total sum, all of which
will go to the Oym Fund, would
have passed the 15000 mark If
more students had purchased their
corsages from the West Point Grey
Florists," explained McKay.
Breakdown of the financial results shows that 13000 was realized through ticket sales; 11160
through the sale of raffle tickets
on nylon stockings; |220 in mixer
sales and coat check tickets; and
$190 from the West Point Grey
Florists.
Expenses for the occasion were
met by Nick Kogos, proprietor of
the Commodore Cabaret.
"Later, through telephone ean-
verattiona with Manitoba and Alberta, it me* learned that telegrams similar to Ihe 'eudedous
'challenge' wire had been leeelved
by those uaivarettiea es well.
Newspaper coverage en the campaign gave the Impression thet all
arrangements for the contest had
been completed ... It was fait by
some students here that eagemsss
of the newspapers to see the contest take place had led to flagrant
distortions and assumption of
facts."
Following decision of the Student Representative CouncU thet
the University of Wssksttftiswi
would stay out of the contest, an
editorial appeared In The Bneef
which termed the university's
stand "a wise one, in refusing to he
taken In."
"It would appear," the editorial
continued, "that Southern Vtme,
through the Vancouver Daily Province aad the Winnipeg TMbune,
haa gone all out on a publicity
stunt involving «s « front, UBCs
War Memorial Campaign."
'Without any confirmation whatsoever from this university, South-
am Press, through UBC, attempted
to farce the University of
chewen to take part In a
which this university knew nothing
about"
It was claimed that the challenges
actually came from UBC, with the
backing of the student council,
and were "turned around" to make
it appear that they originated at
the University of Saskatchewan.
TEXT SUPPLY ACROSS
CANADA REPORTED 'FAIR'
"Not good, but not so bad as
test year," is the general comment
on the text-book situation at most
Canadian universities. Shortages
iire attributed mainly to the cm
rent scarcity of paper and th»
huge demands of American universities this year owing to enormous increases in veteran enrolment.
University of McGill at Montreal reports that the supply of
books is "fair" and that all orders
are  being filled within a month
At the University of Alberta, a
record enrolment has resulted ln
temporary shortages of Commerce
and Applied Science texts.
Principal scarcities at Toronto
University  arc  of Economics  and
Political Science texts. In many
cases, three or four students are
sharing one book. French language texts, previously Imported
from France, are being reprinted
in Quebec under special arrangement. "Although far from Ideal
the situation will work itself out"
according to the manager of the
University book store.
Supplies at the University of
Manitoba are described as "comparatively good," with only a very
few required texts reported out
of print.
Brightest note is at Acadia University, where the book situation
is said to be "the best in years,"
with all major courses fully supplied with  texts. THE UBYSSEY, Tueeday, November 19,1946.   Page 2.

OLD GREY STONES
Out here on the coast we've just enjoyed a
real old-fashioned Beauty Contest. One
lucky but deserving young lady has been
made very happy, seven others almost as
lucky have had a time almost as exciting,
and thousands of people in Vancouver have
been made to feel just a little younger.
In addition, despite what a few earnest
old young people at the University of Saskatchewan have been saying, a good cause
haa been aided without harm being done to
anyone. We refer, of course, to the few
thousand dollars which have been added to
the UBC War Memorial fund. (We'd like
to remind the young lady who wrote the
Sheaf article which ia reprinted on this page
that it is a War Memorial fund and not, as
she maintains, "a foul idea".)
In fact, that article ia one of tht most
amazing things we've ever seen in a college
newspaper, and there have been gome rather
amazing ones before. In our opinion, it's a
perfect example of what happens when
young people take themselves too seriously.
If it were in our financial power to do so
we'd like to wire some money to all the
students at Saskatoon who couldn't see any
fun or worth in the admitted stunt and tell
them to use it on a good meal at the Bess or
the Elite, or a party at the Cavern.
Perhaps if we could do that they might
feel a little better about it. Why, they might
even get up the spirit to start some sort of
campaign themselves.
Come on, you Huskies from Saskatchewan
—you'll never have a merry Christmas if
you take life that seriously.
The Mummery
By JABEZ
THE ADASKIN INFLUENCE
Two weeks ago I joined the hurrying
stream of people Hoeing the horror of Sunday afternoon in Vancouver, following it
into the Orpheum theatre, where Mr. Albert
Steinberg was to conduct the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra.
Now, I don't know much about serious
music. You ask me where Bach waa born
and IH just stand there looking at you,
running my tongue over my lips. Ask me
to distinguish between a concerto and a
rhapsody) and I'll throw my apron over my
head and run home bawling. I represent
the forlfiUWnj M?, Harrjf Adaskinto trying
to stamp out, but whioh keeps squirting up
between his toes.
Still, I do enjoy an occasional concert,
especially when given a ticket by a friend
too ill to go himself. So, I wandered down
the aisle of the Orpheum, accosting women
I thought were usherettes, one of whom led
me back up the aisle and parked me in a
seat to one side at the rear. If there's anything I hate it's a friend too cheap to buy a
better seat than that.
JABEZ* NEIGHBOURS
However, I settled myself comfortably in
my seat, wiggled my ears to make sure the
flaps were working, and waited for some
lovely girl to come sit in the gtill-unoccupied
se^ to my right. Sure enough, in she came,
a girl of about 60, with a gquare-faced friend.
She filled her aaat and overflowed into mine,
jostling mo against the wizened little man to
my left, who glanced at me auspiciously.
The dreadnoughts then set about taking
off their fur coats, an elaborate operation
that gave people around us plenty of time
to note the species, quality and label. As a
special treat for me, the woman closest flung
out her left arm, burying my nose in fur.
After a while she removed the arm, permitting me to breathe again, quite a decent
gesture on her part, I thought.
THE WEDGED FOOT
I was still peering at my program notes,
trying to memorize the plot of Mozart's Symphony in D Major, as the lights went down
and Mr. Steinberg strode to the podium to
strike up "O Canada!" Unprepared for the
anthem, and with my foot having somehow
become wedged into the seat in front, I was
delayed in rising to the occasion. This tardy
patriotism drew sidelong glances of scom
from my neighbours, and I sat down assured
that I had already shown myself up for a
clod, probably drunk.
"My throat is tickling something terrible,"
whispered Fur Coat to her friend. "I'm
afraid I'll cough."
Fine. We could look forward to Mozart's
Symphony in D Major with bronchial interpolations by his mother. She might even
manage to choke to death ih four movements.
The orchestra finished the first movement
of the Mozart Symphony, and we braced
ounelves for the bastard applause, if any.
One pair of male hands broke out to starboard, quickly petering out aa the victim
shuddered under the terrible impact of accusing stares, turned bright purple, and
shrank to a tiny, whimpering figure. I thanked God that I had learned never to applaud
at concerts until the musicians had all left
the stage and the charwomen had started
sweeping up.
THREATENING GULLS
Following Mozart was Mendelssohn's
"Fingal's Cave Overture," about which I
barely had time enough to read the program notes of one Hugo Leichtentritt, who
wrote, "Certainly it gives a wonderfully
vivid Impression of the surging sea, of waves
resounding in rocky caves, of the harsh cry
of sea gulls, the odor of salt air, the sharp
flavor of the seaweed . . ." Hugo seemed
to have the gen, all right. I covered my
head with my program and sat back to attend the sea gulls.
As Mendelssohn rolled up on the beach, I
made repeated efforts to catch the flavor of
the seaweed. Once I thought I had it, but
it turned out to be Fur Coat easing off her
shoes. I could hear the sea surging, though,
very clearly. In fact I was riding the swell
like a cork when, abruptly, Fur Coat let fly
with her first salvo of hacking, interrupting
a sea gull in full cry and lousing up the odor
of salt air with that of Buckley's cough
drops. Out of the corner of my eyes I could
see her holding her breath, trying to choke
off the spasm, and I leaned away from the
inevitable explosion. The wizened little man
gave me a sharp look, I leaned back again.
Then the explosion blew seaweed, gulls and
my program clean out of sight.
The rest of the program I spent avoiding
the eyes of people turning around to see
who had dragged his poor old consumptive
mother down to the concert.
Perhaps that was why I enjoyed Friday's
lunch-hour concert in the Armory so
much more. Mozart went well with chopped
egg sandwich, and Schumann gained depth
from the gentle belching of 2000 undergraduates.   Let's try that again sometime.

"Coeds, Consider"
Ed. Note—The following article waa printed under the above title in
a recent Issue of The Sheaf, student newspaper at the University of
Saskatchewan   It carried the credit line "By Mary-Elisabeth Good".
Waves of contrasting opinion
sweeping the campus regarding the
beauty contest at UBC are making
a decision on the question a very
difficult one. Stop and think!
What will this competition mean
to the university and what is more
Important to the girls themselves?
Ihe idea of exploiting varsity
girls only in order to make some
money for one university ls a foul
one indeed. What is more cheap
than a beauty contest in any form
which is to be used only for a
cause not even affecting our university? Saskatchewan coeds must
sit hack and realize that they are
only being used. This is a difficult
thing to do, for very close to the
feminine is the idea of beauty.
However, display never results ln
gain—only a loss. Do not fall into
the trap of this scheme for soon
enly regret will be felt for the
mistake made.
Fight, do not follow as sheep.
Look at the question with opet<
eyes and a critical mind. Uphold
the reputation of the university
and more important your womanhood. Then blast what you know
to be vulgar and without refinement. One mistake is certainly
forgiveable but correction of it is
the only means of redemption.
If the only university in the
country which rejects this scheme
is Saskatchewan and this action is
tcken only because of the disapproval of the varsity girls, be
proud in the knowledge that you
have done what is right.
BEAUTY-on-the-SPOT
It is obvious these days that beauty ia not everything. A
look at the results of a recent nation-wide contest will show
you why. What beautiful woman has ever skyrocketed to
fame like the one and only "Lena, the Hyena" of Lower Slob-
bovia. Lena, though ugly, has become the moat talked about
woman of the year. The participation and interest in Lena's
contest was far greater than even that in the widely publicized contest which chose "Miss America of 1946."
Lena obviously has no beauty
but she must have something to get
her picture in nearly every newspaper and magazine througout tha
continent Maybe she has a 'fourth
dJmentional personality,' but whatever she has it is certainly "out
of this world.'
And when they showed her looks.
In all the papers and books,
Said the gentlemen, "Obviously
That Lena has the strangest
It's lucky for the hoys at UBC
that when "Sadie Hawkins Day"
comes around, Lena won't be hers.
I can imagine that there would be
some track records broken that
day if Lena were here. But in
some ways it ls too bed that Lena
isn't around our campus. I'm sure
she would consent to write one
of our next "Beauty on the Spot"
columns. We could also use her
MARY CROWE
in connection with our War Memorial Gymnasium Drive. She could
scare the money out of our B. C.
citizens so fast that we would have
cur gymnasium in no time at all.
With Malice Aforethought
BY PETER REMNANT
Whether or not the performance of the Szostakowicz
Ninth by Arthur Rodzlnski and the New York Philharmonic
Sunday before last, was the American premiere of the work
I cannot remember. At any rate it was a first for both the
Philharmonic and myself.
The Ninth is of particular interest just now, because it
has been the subject of apparently rather violent adverse
comment by the Moscow critics—something about a lack of
warm ideological conviction. In fact some of the more frothy
American publications suggested that Szostakowicz had been
purged as a result of the composition.
"PVRGE"
Possibly it would be worth while
digressing long enough to investigate this word 'purged'. From
its rather sordid station as an
obscure process connected with
tho bowels, purged has of late taken upon Itself a host of meanings, with the result that, coupled
with the activities of any out of
favor political group, it ma}' refer
to anything from a public execution in Red Square to a panning
by the local critics.
The .Symphony, described prior
to its performance as Haydnesque,
DEFINED
opens with a toy rfiop first movement very reminiscent of the com*
poser's earlier Polka from "The
Age of Gold". The second movement an Andante and by far the
finest thing in the symphony, begins with the statement of a long
Slavic theme, by the oboe, which
is further worked out between the
body of the orchestra, in great
blocks of massive chords, and the
colo Instruments which rise time
after time above the concerted
sections.
NUTRIENT
The third movement light and
playful, recalls a Tchaikovsky
scherzo, with its shimmery little
runs in the strings, and forms a
pleasant contrast to the thoughtful second movement. The fourth,
which grows directly out of the
third in a slow succession of rising
chords in the brass, promises more
nourishing fare as the horns take
over the tHeme, but it turns out
to be scarcely more than a short
transition passage leading into the
fifth, and final, movement
The fifth, another Allegro, works
away incessantly at a theme which
ls emaciated from the start barely
conscious by the finish.  The whole
HORNS
effect of this flnal movement is one
of shallowness and inordinate
length.
With no particular desire to defend the Moscow critics, I can
hardly see that they were too
rough in their handling of this
symphony. The Ninth is not only
very unsatisfactory in its avowed
role as an expansion of victory,
but it Is also well below the aver-
role as an expression of victory,
positions. Only In the second and
the minute fourth movement does
it show signs of greatness, and ln
the fifth—by rights the culmination
—it ls downright banal.
ART AND ENVIRONMENT
With regard to the charge that
the symphony lacks ideological
conviction—that is a more obscure
point Naturally the symphony
makes no clear statement of philosophic outlook—only Wagner tries
that. The reference seems rather
to be the fact that the symphony
fella as an expression, In music, of
the social environment In which
It has been composed. For the man
who feels art to be the expression
of an individual, as an individual,
with no relation to the life of tha
community as a whole, this view
of social expression will be meaningless.
If, however, we hold, with the
Russians, that art Is relative to,
and a product of the way of life
of, the group from which it springs,
then we must see the artist as a
spokesman of his community,
under the constant obligation of
creating truthful and representative works of art.

MUMMERS PRESENT
Pacific Tribune, formerly the
Pacific Advocate, lauded the re>
ception of Tim Buck Ui his recent
speech to students nere and condemned the Vancouver Daily
Province for its headline "Students Boo Tim Buck."
This publication, with Editoi
Tom McEwen, Manager Ivan Blr-
chard and with Nigel Morgan,
Maurice Rush, Minerva Cooper
and Al Parkin on the editorial
board, gave prominence to what
it called the "Attentive hearing'
to the LPP"s national leader,
In opposition to the Province's
account of Mr. Buck's speech, the
Tribune said, "actually, student*
themselves silenced a handful of
individuals who attempted to Interrupt the answering of questions by heckling." The Tribune
called the Province's article an
example of "irresponsible newt
reporting."
"All I want is a nice little knife murder in China Town."
Those were the sentiments oi one of the Ubyssey staff
reporters after being assigned to cover the police calls when
the staff of the Ubyssey joined that of the Province last
Thursday.-
The idea of spending the evening sitting by the radio listening
to police calls and then being able
to cover a hold-up or a fire or
maybe even a murder seemed terribly exciting.
HUMDRUM
However, after a few hours of
almost uninterrupted silence broken by the occasional report of
boys breaking a streetlight or
people being disturbed by a wild
party, or a flght in front of the Si
Regis Hotel, the reporter was more
than a little bored.

Letters To The Editor

Dear Sir:
Congratulations to Peter Remnant for his informative end
thought provoking article on freedom cf the press. It is a bitter
joke to realise that we have engaged in a recent struggle under
the pretext of protecting, among
other things, freedom of expression, a prlvelege we do not pos-
A people can never have true
freedom of expression while the
sources of information are not
truly free. Today the vast majority of newstabloids are controlled by a small group of little men
who pervert the news to fit their
own selfish plans and prejudices.
These men hold public opinion
firmly in their hands, clay that
can be moulded to their will.
Thus the phrase "our democratic
press" needs sharp revision. Can
you think of a more accurate
term?

COERCION
When eleven-thirty rolled round
and still no crime wave our frustrated reporter was drowsily typing
a one-folio rewrite. Suddenly one
of fhe Province reporters called
from a nearby desk. " How would
you like to take another rewrite?"
In a few seconds a sleepy coed
waa seated at the typewriter wear,
ing ear phones and saying, "Okay,
go ahead."
One of those booming authoritative voices came over the wire.
"This is Police Superintendent
Mulligan calling from headquarters to report a murder."
A now thoroughly awakened reporter began to type madly as
Supl Mulligan supplied all the
lurid, detail. Mrs. Harry Jackson,
of. 134 Dunbar)had been knifed
jusVe^hallheur ago and the murderer had left no evidence. Six
eonstables were now at the scene
ef the crime.
CONVINCED
Our ambitious reporter, determined to get all the information
possible asked how the murder
had been discovered. One of the
policemen on the beat had heard
a woman scream and had hurried
to investigate.
The only statement the superintendent would make about suspects
was that the murder seemed to be
the work of an, experienced man.
With a single motion our excited
reporter tore the sheet from the
typewriter.   "Look," die screamed, 'a murder!"
POR SHAME
Everyone looked alright but the
looks seemed a little strained. In
foot the three Province reporters
were finding lt very difficult te
hide a fiendish grin if not an outright luxeh. What wm so fanny
about a murder?
Slowly our reporter was "beginning to see the Ihjbl" A check
flciently solved the murder mystery. There wasn't any SM Dunbar.
Oh well, it was fun while it
lasted.

HEY MA ! - IT'S SNOWING ! !
One might say that the weatherman .has forgotten that
Christmas is still a month away. At least it had better be if
any of the poor lads on the sport desk are going to get through
come exam time.
Perhaps the weatherman is trying to cross-up Leo
Sweeney, Vancouver's foremost advocate of the "ever-green
playground". But after all, the great Mr. Sweeney was one
of those talented gentlemen who said that UBC's Miss Albert
had that certain something.
And that she did too. For once again the Blue and
Gold has come to the fore. But, I suppose many of you are
asking what has this got to do with Sport ? ? ? Brother, a lot
of those guys watching those lovely examples of feminine
pulchritude were panting harder than any track runner I
ever saw!!!
It's Curtains For Grid
And just to think, that all of this laat few inches came
out of a bit of snow- Actually though, this snow just serves
to remind ua that UBC and American football have had it for
this year. And on the whole, we'll have to agree that we
haven't had too many points in the win column.
But to say that the 'Birds just haven't got it in the grid
field is one thing that we just can't go along with. To say
truth, many of the moguls who have the clues lined up pretty
well in the sportlight, figured that if the 'Birds were just able
to go out there and let the other team know they were there,
something would be accomplished in the first year in Conference grid.
Not that we think it ia necessary to make excuses for the
team, but there are reasons for the losses our boys have
taken. Coach Kabat has done a great job in moulding the
talent he had on hand into some semblance of a grid squad.
The boys in the line did as good a job as they knew how to
do against competition that has been playing the game since
they were in knee-pants.
Th« Oilier Guys Knew More
The backfield was made up of boys who know plenty
•bout the game on the whole. The whole thing was that the
boys were out-classed by teams who really know their grid.
After all, a grid team can't be made over night.
We til know what a beating the kids from Vancouver
College took in their first year at the game. Since that time,
they have learned a great deal, but it waa only through the
means of bitter experience.
Many of those boys who are learning the fundamentals
at the local college will prove very valuable to the Blue and
Gold cause in the future- The advantage of playing under
the same coach is another point in our favour for they will
know what the whily mentor expects of them.
Santa Should Be Coming
Anyhow, it's all over for this year and all we can do is
sit and wait for next year and hope that it will tell a slightly
different story.
With the news that the Big Four will not be able to play
the Varsity squad next week-end, the boys can definitely
hang up the strip and call it a season. It seems that V.A.C.
has to play Victoria so that rather gettles the issue.
It might have been a good contest and it would certainly
have made a little money for the Gym Fund if it had come
about. There are a great many people hereabouts who wonder just what the difference is between the local grid circle
and the type of ball the "Birdmen have been up against.
Oh well, as we said in the beginning, the snow has
arrived. Winter is here. Who wants to play football anyhow? It's time to start thinking about Santa Claus and how
long we're going to be able to sleep in during those lovely
holidays.
—Ubyssey photo by Danny Wallace
THE LAST TIME—It's all over now. That sums up the situation very quickly as far
as American football is concerned for this year. The 'Birds played their last game of the
season Friday night at Forrest Grove against Pacific University. The Blue and Gold squad
came back without a win but with plenty of injuries. Shown above putting on the strip for
the last time are three of the mainstays of the Varsity roster, Fred Joplin, Herb Capozzi
and Rex Wilson. Joplin was one of the unfortunates who was injured Saturday night.
Blue And Gold Gridders Finish Season
With 31-0 Loss At Hands Of Pacific U
By CHICK TURNER
Varsity's first American football season came to an abrupt and somewhat inglorious
conclusion Friday night, aa the Thunderbirds, enroute at Forest Grove, Washington, made
their debut under the arc-lamps by taking a 31-0 pasting by the Pacific University Badgers.
Scoring in every quarter, Ozzie Gate'a gridmen prowled through the dusk, racking up
a 6-0 lead at the first quarter, extending it to 12-0 at the half, lengthening it to 18-0 at the
three-quarter gun, and romping unmolested to a pair of clinchers in the filial canto to boost
the final scoreboard reading to a hefty 31-0.

VARSITY TAKES UBC
IN MILLER CUP RACE
English rugby fans were treated to one of the best games
of the season, Saturday, when UBC dropped its second game
to Varsity by a score of 24-3. From the first whistle to the
last, the Stadium tingled with the thrill of the aroused spectators as both teams strove magnificently for a win.
Playing clean, wide open rugby,       ^^~~~—^"~™"~'—"■""""^~~^~
both teams threatened in the opening half, but Varalty opened the
scoring when Russ Latham spin
the posts from a penalty kick in
front of the UBC line.
Although playing a wide open
game the UBC line was no match
for the Varsity weight. In quick
succession Barney Kirby and Ray
Grant smashed over the line and
one nice convert was made by the
sure foot of Latham.
In the last few seconds of th*
first half Varsity scored on another penalty as Harvey Allen
dropped one over the posts.
In the second half after a Uttle
Joker revelling, the UBC fifteei
came out fighting mad, and within
a few seconds Keith MacDonald
had charged up the field for the
first and only orange shirt score
The UBC squad continued to
threaten but with about 15 minutes to go the star of the day
Russell Latham, suddenly got
loose, and went on the rampage
The Varsity three line rolled ur
the field and Latham scored s
try right between the posts. He
then completed the effort by booting over his own convert.
Minutes later Latham again got
loose and crossed the line just beside the posts, snd again he scored
his own convert, bringing his total points of the day to 15, and
making the final score of the day
24-3.

In 7-1 Victory
Weekend soccer games saw tht
two Blue and Gold squads split
a pair of games with the powerhouse Varsity gang trouncing the
previously undefeated Collingwood eleven, 7-1, and the UBC
team going down to defeat at the
hands of Vancouver United in the
first round-of the Mainland Cup
Ties by a score of 4-0.
In the last five games the College
kids have amassed a total of Vi
goals while limiting their opponents to a mere 5 markers. Coact
Millar McGill's attempts to change
Varsity from a second half team
to a full-game team paid off at
the campus warriors rapped ln
three first-half counters. Stan
Nicol booted in the first goal a'
the 5 minute mark followed by
Jimmy Gold at the IS minute
mark. Collingwood then scored iu
only goal on a down field rusV
with Jack Kersey being the
marksman. Shortly after Stan
Nicol got his second counter on a
play from Dave Thompson and
Jim Gold. In the second half Collingwood made a determined effort to stem the Varsity tide bu<
finally succumbed In the last SC
minutes as Varsity rapped in foui
quick goals.
At Powell Street Grounds, UBC
was not as fortunate as its Varsity brothers when the high flying
Vancouver United squad scored at
will in a 4-0 rout, and advancet
to the second round of the Mainland Cup Ties. Dick Smith with
two markers and Mario Chriatianc
and Fred Wardroper with singletons were the marksmen for tht
winners.

The Thunderbirds raised the
curtain on their American code
performance on October 8, when
they played the benign host to the
Willamette Bearcats, who have
since cinched the Conference title,
and succumbed to a 36-13 verdict,
after holding on until halftime
even-steven, by virtue of a 13-13
sawoff.
An exhibition tilt with Lappy
Lappenbusch's Western Washington
Vikings from Bellingham, Washington, followed the next week at
the Stadium, and the outcome was
a shattering 25-0 shutout.
AGAIN NOSED OUT
Coach Raymond V. "Nig" Bor-
leske herded his gridmen across
the border to the metropolis on
October 19, where they played consistent ball to outscore the 'Birds
by a single touchdown, 21-13, after
the home squad had roared to a
13-0 lead in the first eight minutes
of play.
Kabat's team staged their fourth
straight debacle before a home-
crowd a week later, when the College of Idaho Coyotes, under the
wily mentorahlp of Clem Berberry,
outpouched the 'Birds, 19-7, to dash
the Homecoming hopes of some
5000 fans.
The contest with the formidable
defensive combination supplied by
the Loggers of the College of Puget
Sound saw the Varsity clan take
the road to Tacoma, and bow to
the Tacoma formation to the tune
of a one-sided 34-6 decision.
LINFIELD BEATS "BIRDS
The average UBC fan replete
with Booster Pass was given his
Inst chance to view the Thunderbird aggregation on November 9,
when it tangled with the taloned
Wildcats from Linfleld College of.
McMlnnville, Oregon. The 'Birds
palgued with the injury bugbear
went amphibious on a rain-drenched gridiron but got dunked by the
Linfleld crew who proved more
adept at handling the elusive pigskin, and muddled their way to a
13-0 count.
And the flnak was staged before
an evening chorale of spectators at
Forrest Grove.
Rampant speculation circulating
f bout the city concerning the possible challenge for the Seaforth
Cup, emblematic of football supremacy in British Columbia, has
been Anally squelched by fhe looming threat of Christmas examinations. If the project should have
been realised, the Thunderbirds
would have played, in all probability, the formidable VAC entry lead
by playing-coach Orville Burke,
passer-de-luxe, who garnered his
grid savvy while wearing the Red
and White of the Ottawa Rough-
riders. The issue will remain a
topic of conversation for some time
to come, but as far as the moguls
on the campus as concerned, examinations definitely supersede
f.thletics, and so the question rests.
'Birds Outfly Alberni Men
In Saturday Hoop Ficture
In their final exhibition game before they settle down tu
a season of serious melon manoeuvering, UBC's Thunderbird
hoopmen took the Port Alberni Aces for a 48-35 joy ride at
the Islanders' home camp on Saturday night.
Tall, dark and dependable Harry Kermode once again
came through as high man, with a big 15 points to show for

Cub Icemen
Down UBC
League-leading New Westminster Cubs eked out a close 6-5 decision over the Varsity Thundei-
bird puck quintet before a crowa
of 700 Royal City ice fans ai
Queen's Park Arena on Sunday
afternoon.
Trailing by two goals at the
opening of the final stanza, the
UBC stickmen put on a spirited
drive that fell just one tally short
of a game-tying effort. Like so
many hornets, the student icemen
swarmed around the New Westminster net, but their hopes of thc
sixth point died with the final
whistle.
Bob Saunders, Mac Porteout
and Bill Husbapd were their usual
dependable selves and came
through with one goal apiece.
Walt Wilde and Stu Johnson scored the two remaining UBC counters.
TWO ASSISTS ALSO
Saunders and Husband were also credited with two assists each
and Owen Woodslde made one
assist.
'Bird net-tender, Murray Wiggins, after a shaky start, buckled
down to hold the rampant Royalists to a one-point advantage.

read 11-7 for Varsity.
The old Nichol-Kermode-rrank-
