Taking part in this performance
are former UBC graduates and
students. Donald Wilson, director
of this production and a former

Gym Debt Reduced
By Generous Donation
The Alumni Association is giving five thousand dollars to
the Alma Mater Society to help pay off the debt on the War
Memorial Gymnasium. j
The cheque was handed over by
the chairman of the Alumni Development Fund, Harold A. Berry,
at a joint student-alumni dinner
held in Brock Hall last night.
Rnghblr Basl, AMS president, received the cheque on behalf of the
AMS and thanked the Alumni As.
sociation "for their continuing Interest" In the gym program.
"This gift plus the generous
treatment which we have received
at the hands of the Bank of Montreal has considerably reduced our
gymnasium financing problem,"
satd Oerry Duclos, AMS treasurer,
commenting on the gift.
With this latest Alumni Association gift nnd the application of the
annual student levy of five dollars,
the student debt on the gym now
stands at Approximately one hundred thousand dollars.
It ls estimated that tt will take
the students another four years to
pay off this debt If outside assistance ls not received.
ln the meantime many of the facilities of the'gymnasium such as
the bowling alleys are still unfinished and the swimming pool ls
still to be constructed.
Balla Speaks
International House Association established another important link with the community as the result of an address
given by Brigitta Balla on Monday evening. Balla spoke to
the International Travellers Women's Club about the foreign
students on our campus and the educational possibilities of their
presence here, both for them and for us.

The Easy Way
The Ubyssey refrained from making any
editorial endorsement of candidates in the
recent presidential campaign in the United
States on the thesis that such endorsements
Should be left to those who are also eligible
to take part in the shaping of the final verdict.
However, on the day of election there
appeared in this paper through the oversight
and negligence of A staff member an "I Like
Ike" slogan.
While this oversight may haVe put us into
a position of being able to claim to have
backed a winner, we should like to make it
quite clear, as indeed our more discerning
readers have probably gathered by now,'that
at no time since the nomination of Governor
Stevenson had we entertained the idea of
favoring Oeneral Eisenhower.
Wis fyke Ike, if liking can be considered a
measure of preference over other Republicans we could nan\e. However, we are of
tbe opinion that the advertising conscious
voters in the United States went lor a trade
name and bought themselves a horse they
would not have touched under any other
Thf much touted Univac calculating monster predicted, to the consternation of its
keepers, a large margin for Stevenson after
Mng fed the early returns. We suggest that
the men in charge of this machine neglected
to feed it one set of data—those concerning
th« susceptibility of the American voter to
publicity buildups.
Nevertheless, the fact remains that the
United States, in line with voting trends the
world over, has swung right as a reaction to
the spread of communism. What seems not to
have been considered is the fact that Moscow
will be as happy as any member of the National Association of Manufacturers. It is
generally disregarded on this side of the
Atlantic that communism's most bitterly
hated foes are not the MacArthur's of this
world but the Schumachers, Atlees and
Adlai Stevenson has an honesty of mind
which moved him to present problems in an
open and searching manner. He did not
attempt to descend to that simplest of measure
sticks—that of reducing all problems to the
level of primitive and archaic concepts of
"Americanism". He lost.
In Eisenhower the American people are
hoping to find a "leader" to simplify the ever-
pressing and evergrowing problems that face
the nation. In their dilemma as drafted leaders of the Western World the Americans have
shied away as the Germans, Italians and
Spaniards had done before them when faced
with difficult if different problems.
The voters turned out for Eisenhower and
voted in favor of not being bothered with the
complexities of world problems for the next
four years. They voted in favor of a world
reduced to simplified trench warfare problems.
We happen to be in the same trench, and
we can only hope that General Eisenhower
will expand his tools to fit the problems
facing him instead of trying to minimize the
problems to fit his tools.
Intelligent Discussion?
Mr. McSpadden's guest editorial in a recent
edition of the Ubyssey contributes little to
an intelligent discussion of religion. The
professor simply gives us a list of illustrious
personages who have embraced Christianity
(only one of the world's great religions), the
implication being that everyone should follow iheir example.
However, Mr. McSpadden did leave out
some other important 'Christian' people: Mac-
Arthur, Chiang Kai-Chek, Peron, Duplessis
and Franco, and no doubt even Joseph
Without some knowledge of the reasons
Which led these eminent men to belief, we
cannot regard the argument as anything but
a repition of the futile "Great Man" technique.
We understand that Mr. McSpadden is
Connected with the Varsity Christian Fellow
ship, the organization which recently sponsored an Army general speaking on war and
"By their fruits ye shall know them." What
are the fruits of Lt.-Gen. Sir Arthur Smith
and his kind? Millions of human beings dying, dead, or wishing they were.
It seems to us that the logic which Mi.
McSpadden uses is of the same variety as
that which makes possible co-operation between a so-called religious organization and
the trained killers of the COTC.
The Christian Church (and the VCF) will
not need paid advertising campaigns or military nobility to propagandize for them when
they show one thing: that their methods and
results are consonant with their alleged principles.  At the present time, they do not.

The efforts of tho pronounced

tunglo Canada in a fierce political' battle next year when our
government makes its bid for
public confidence.
Tho recent upsets in B.C. and

the status quo and partial abolition of "social" reforms attempted by the liberal groups

ovei,-taxed Mr. Doe, are a Rood
Indication that a national party,
rtdlug on a qualified conservative ticket, could swing an election.
Ail   they   would   need   -is   an
army man.
The appeal of the hero has
been proved again and again in
recent political skirmishes. Peron
wns a colonel in the Argentine
militia: Batista, the much bally'
booed dictator of the tiny republic of Cuba, was a sergeant
and Niigulb, Egypt's strong mini,
wns a promfnont general before
his coup. All these men, of
course, gained control of their
countries through revolution, but
their tremendous popularity with
the people after they had once
assumed tiie responsibility of
directing the affairs of their nations is an interesting phenomena.
The leader of Canada's rightist
party is a colonel In the reserves.
If vve wanted to stretch 'this
liero-glorlflcatlon stuff to the
point of absurdity, we could build
up a nationwide campaign aimed
at blowing Drew up as an army
hero. National Army Week
would become nothing but a political tool craftily designed to
undermine the nation's faith in
civilian leadership, devoted to the
cause of soldiers in parliament,
and a wild campaign for the
furtherance of khaki and mud
brown as the national colors.
"Whim Georgle Conies Marching Home" would be on the lips
of  thousands  of  tuba  players  In
army bands all over tbe country.
"I'm in Drew's crew" would be
the battle cry of millions of boy
scouts, girl guides, Elks, Lions,
Antelopees and the WCTU.
C'ur. fair land would be crawling with men trained in thu

cause of peace. The Legion
would be pouring out quotes from
men in the ranks who remembered George at Camp Borden,

miinoeuvers when A learn was

up In a contest to see who would
get to the bar before five o'clock
However, the astounding success of army heroes in politics
Is something to be seriously considered. Not that we haven't

Bdltor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
^fo Bob Loosmore:  In regard to
your article entitled "Fishy Eye''
and dated October 23.
If your column Is any indication of the level of 'Communist
propaganda on this side of the
Atlantic, one must conclude that
the Red effort Is slipping.
I have just returned from Germany, where we occasionally
listened to Radio Prague. They
exhibit a much better grade of
writing and a far more subtle
appeal than yours, and are consequently twice as entertaining.
Wisely, they have for the most
part abandoned tired old cliches
like "masse* of the proletariat".
They have found these out-worn
catch phrases move the listener
(or reader) to bored disinterest.
Is there something inherently
evil In diversion? Do you mean
to imply that the life of the "proletarian" in existing Red regimes
la so worry-free that he needs
no outside Interest?
I've met a good many Westbound Csechs who have a slightly
different story to tell: "Worries
of existence" are of such a magnitude In Red Csechotlovakla that
great numbers find it necessary
to cross three miles of patrolled
no-man's land (on their side of
the border) to be "diverted".
Yes, In a sense you're right
about the'similarity ot our tvyo
presidential candidates: neither
will condone Communist aggression, and both will seek an honorable peace. We're secure In the
opinion that neither or them will
appease brutality, threats, or Invasion by Red forces.
Your concluding two paragraphs are a neat example of
something Oeorge Orwell described as "double-speak'' ln his
book "19t4". I'm surprised that
with such a line of thinking as
yours and writing for a college
newspaper you would Imply that
the whole essence of J.V. Stalin's
dictatorship Is "moribund".
Finally, I would suggest tn tbe
interest of accuracy that you
change the name of your column
to "The Fishy Mind".

Please, let's get a few public
spirited editorials on campus life.
The Pub complains that students
are .apathetic, but on a function
that Is put over by hundreds or
thousands or energetic students,
I would hardly consider this a
worthy complaint. The students
are asked for spirit, when It Is
given they deserve more than a
little credit for it.
Yours for more unbiased
accounts of student functions.
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:   ,
■Mr. Loosmore professes In
paragraph 1 of bis column dated
30th October, to refrain from
discussing the recent guest editorial which sought to demonstrate that some people believe
religion has present value. It is
my Impression that ln paragraphs
3 and 4 an attack Is made on a
point of view expressed in the
guest editorial, The remainder
of the column contains an opinion on the value of rational and
empirical thought, an opinion
upon which many people both
atheistic and religious are agreed.
Mr. Ixiosmore contends that to
quote the opinion of an authority,
whose fame ls established ln
fields related to the topic or
otherwise, Is an open discussion
on the value of religion, for example, a person may contribute
evidence in support of the contention that it is possible for a
scientist, philosopher, engineer,
artoman, or any person who
thinks' rationally and enquires
empirically, to derive some value
from a religion.
I have observed that, among
the people who have supported
the present value of religion,
there are some who^have made
substantial contributions to empirical knowledge. This seems to
indicate that religious thought
does not always Inhibit empirical
research and that religion is not
always an opiate or a form of
escapism. There are also clerics
with whom I am acquainted, who
think that empirical research and
rational thought by an Individual
does not preclude religious values
being experienced by that individual. It ls also the opinion
of these clerics, and It has been
the experience of some people
Including myself, that the value
one derives from religion does
not depend on the acceptance of
authority, r'urlhcrmorp. if religion implied Mie unquestioning
acceptance of authority, no theological research or ehttnge in
theological thought could ever
have occurred—but it has occurred.
Mr. Loosmore states that If
one's Information is accurate and
one's logic is valid, one cau reacli
true and useful conclusions. Perhaps 1 should be censured for
quoting an authority. Tills prlii-
c I p I e concerning conclusions
ought, I think, to lie applied to
any discfission Including a discussion on values or a discussion
on knowledge. I think that his
conclusion about quoting the
opinions of other people is useful
because his conclusion has stimulated my thought. However, I
am not convinced that his, Information Is sufficient to conclude that one ought not to conduct a discission in this manner.
I agree with "Mr. Loosmore that
a person should think for himself, but I do not agree that he
can always induce true conclusions without evaluating the
opinions of other people. He can
deduce a valid conclusion without
evaluating other opinions, but
his conclusion will not necessarily be true. Perhaps Mr. Loosmore was thinking about deductive logic when he waa writing
about Inductive logic.

Fishy Eye
My   attention   is
guest   editorial   to
paper's   current   eruption
the CBC. Not being able
drawn   by   a
a   downtown
to read
the aforesaid paper Ui more than
minute doses, I am able to escape
the worst of tbe storm. However,
it seems to me that the CBC has
been doing a pretty fair Job or
broadcasting—at least in comparison with the private stations. And
as for television, frankly, I couldn't
care less, On the whole, it doesn't
seem to be worth all the fuss
either for instruction or entertainment.
The most recent move of CBC.
though, does call for some criticism
—the move to enforce the presentation of a specified quantity of
Canadian talent on every station,
Note carefully that CBC does not
suggest that there should also be
n specified quality of this talent.
For those who missed the Ho.

Eye would like to beckon you to
look lit the Implications of such
a rujlng.
First, there is the obvious criticism; the ruling bypasses the question of merit altogether. The basis
of presentation is not, "Is It good?"
but "Is lt Canadian?" The result
Is a discouragement faf the critical
faculties of the listeners — which
are low enough already.
Developing from this, we get a
criterion of "Canadlan-ness" rathef

he was sixteen Ernest wrote and

the next five or six promptly rejected. Since that time he has bad
a number ot radio plays produced
on OBC.
"I like to try my hand at a variety of literary ventures and so
hove written poetry, a stage play,
a musical comedy, magazine articles, essays, short stories and
radio documentaries. Some of the

Perrault ln an interview.

CCF Accident Welfare
Tells How The Prairies
Do It
A large crowd attended ?G
100 Wednesday, to view the
film "We've Got You Covered."
Produced by the Saskatchewan
Government, the film outlines the
history and provisions ot the Saskatchewan Auto 'Accident Insurance Act, the only Insurance plan
of Its kind In the world. The film
tells the story of Saskatchewan
transportation and highways from
the "Bennett-buggy" days to the
prasent conditions of Saskatchewan highways and government
transportation and Insurance services.
Emphasis Is laid on the facts of
high Insurance coverage at low
cost to the client; rapid adjustment of claims; and the absence of
the necessity for court actions to
satisfy a claim.
In a discussion period following
tho film, one student asked why,
since the Saskatchewan scheme
was a good welfare measure, the
three political parties on the campus do not send a Joint petition
to the B.C. government requesting
that a similar Insurance plan be
instituted in B.C.
Although CCF iMLA's have constantly urged the government to
take this action, OOF Club president  Pat  Thomas declared:   "For

Asked what kind of a team
the Thunderbirds hockey squad
would have this season, sober-
faced coach Frank Frederick-
son hesitated. "That's rather
hard to say at the moment," he
replied. "We'll have to wait to
see what develops after thc
final shakedown of players."
After the opening tie with Pll
eeners last week, Frederickson has
become acquainted with several
new players and their ability. Now
that he has that Information, the
permanent lineup can soon be Iced.
Twenty-five hopefuls still have an
eye on squad berths.
Frederickson and co-mentor Dick
Mitchell are expecting Steve Orys-
chuk. one Of the Birds* top-notch-
ers, to flash some of the ability
that placed him among the most
feared sharp shooters in the league
last season.
Don Anderson and Bill Olsen will
continue In the Birds' crease and
there is no doubt that net minding
will be a strong factor after last
week's display by Anderson.
The Gryschuk punch line was
flanked by team captain Gunner
Bailey and newcomer Peter Hume.
Bailey revived last year's spirit
by potting two goals, Left winger
Hume comes to us from Calgary
Another line that Frederickson
thought highly of in the opener
had Bob Stephen at centre with
vets Mac Carpenter and Jim McMahon on the wings.
Rookie Don Haworth provided
Pils with plenty of opposition by
sparking his line mates Jim Todd
and newcomer Bill Sherwood of
Victoria Commercial League.
Rearguard Mai Hughes broke up
all Pilsener attempts by showing
top form on the defensive. Ken
Ward, who halls from Ontario's
Junior "A" circuit, also sparkled
for the Birds and is looked upon
as another defenseman to lead
them to the playoffs this season.
Mike Glroday and Bob Groulx
combined to make up the back
cone and Groulx helped by a solo
effort in the third which proved to
be the tying goal.

Frederickson won't decide on" his
forward units until the season's
been on for a month, but things
are shaping up quite well during
regular workouts. •

that our Birds puck squad is going
to be all right this season, once
tbe weak spots have been plugged.

HARD-HITTING BIRD attacking plays like the one pictured above were very few and

first hat trick of the season. Th'e
other UIJC tally was scored by Pete
Hume on a pass from Gryschuk,
Hume and Bailey also got credited
with an assist.
The. loss put the Birds In a third
place tie with the Pilseners, but
should UBC defeat Olympics Friday night at Kerrisdale, th^y will
move Into a three-way tie for first
place  with  Wheelers and  PNE.
Ken Ward of Huntsvllle, Ontario,
played an outstanding game on defense and should prove to be one
of the most promising players on
the team.
The winners gained an early
lead and held lt throughout the
game. Most of the Wheeler scoring
came ln the third period as they
rallied for three markers. Lynch
accounted for two of these.
Tiie contest displayed the best
passing strategy of the season and
fans should be in for some good
hockey at Kerrisdale Friday night.

Braves last year bowed out in the

Birds Flounder Forgotten
In Giant Athletic Mix - Up
Varsity's hapless Thunderbirds
take the field for their last home
game on Saturday against one ot
the powerhouse teams of the Evergreen Conference, the Western
Washington Vikings.
No doubt the members fo the
Bird team will be devoutly thank-
full that the end of the season is
near.. In their first official season
of Evergreen Conference play the
Birds have been consistently
slaughtered by team after team;
bave seen their valiant efforts to
produce a half decent team thwarted by the Senate and have seen
many of their best players carried
off the Held.
They have iu fact had a lousy
As this page, has tried to point
out, however, the pitiful showing
of CMC in conference play has not
bean the fault of the team or of
the coach. Pitted against American
colleges with n constant supply of
high school football players and
with the system of athletic .scholarships the Birds haven't stood a
dog's chance.
The upshot of this dismal showing has been the term long ftmrc
on athletics. Every aspect of the
athletic situation at UBC has come
under fire.
Some advocated firing Jelly Andersen but as Athletic Director
enn pointed out even Knute Rockne
couldnt' win with the material at
A group of students genuinely
concerned with the whole situation
assembled together to discuss
means of remedying the entire situation.
Three proposals were drafted by
this group to be added to the
Ostrum Plan subject to approval
of the students. Summarized these
proposals are as follows:
The Athletic Director should be
in charge of Varsity Intramural
actlvties and should be responsible
to the Board of Governors aud the
Students' Council through the
Men's Athletic Council, not through
the  School  of  Physical  Education.
A permanent Athletic Director
should be appointed capable of
coaching lhe football team as well
as   beading   intramural   activities.
The final proposal was that the
appointment of the Athletic Director should be made by ths
Men's Athletic Directorate subject
to approval by the Senate and the
student body.
A petition is also rumored to be
underway  asking  students  to  call
a general AMS meeting in an attempt to have student opinion of
the whole situation voiced.
The Parliamentary Forum rightly recognizing tbe importance of
the affair will attempt to clear
some of the air today when John
Tennant. well known rugger player and Bill Bouldlng debate whether the Ostrum Plan should be kept
with minor modifications or should
be scrapped entirely.
Whatever the outcome is, we in
this corner would advocate one
thing. Don't blame tbe Birds and
above all don't boo them off the
field when they are clobbered 66-0
by Western Washington as they
undoubtedly will  be.
