UBC Fall Ball
All Sold Out
"UBC" men are "links" In the
opinion of Bill McKay and his staff
of FaU Ball ticket agents.
A unique situation has arisen,
stated McKay, from the fact that
the entire 500 men's tickets were
sold out Thursday morning, while
150 women's tickets still remained.
It is believed that this peculiarity
arises from the fact that men have
bought their tickets and neglected
to arrange dates.
Two envoys from lower Slobbovia
appeared on the campus yesterday
morning, allegedly *" search of a
date for their protege 'Lena the

t< Student Council's refusal to permit the Social Problems Club to
present Tlm Buck as a campu*
speaker ranges from forthright
rfticiam to mild derision.
"It's about the best way of giving
the whole university a reputation
for short-sightedness and intolerance," declared poonomics professor G. F. Drummond.
"When 1 was a student In Scotland we had speakers of all political faiths at our university, including some very radical ones. It
all added to the joy In life. Ihe

Commented Labor Problems lecturer Dr. Stuart Jamieson, "Tim
Buck spoke here in 1034 when I
vas a student at  thc university
and there was no fuss raised over
it then."
Said French professor Dr. A. F.
D. Clark, "Until we become a totalitarian state we should be faithful to the- democratic principle of
freedom of speech."
He added that,- in his opinion,
not enough political speakers were
brought to the campus to stir
student interest.
''The decision is up to the AMS",
according to Dr. W. N. Sage. The
Student Council was elected by
the students themselves. If they
don't like the decisions, they may
elect another body. That is the
"When AMS president Tsd Kirkpatrick says the decision of the
student council is in the best interest of the University, he is saying more than his position entitles
him to," declared Dr. Earle Birney.
"1 would remind him that 'University' refers to both students and
faculty. Although not in sympathy with the politics of Thr
Buck, I have a sufficient belief in
democracy to feel that he should
be accorded the same opportunity
to speak as anyone else. I do not
think that the decision of the student council Is In accord with
general student opinion.
"I think that Mr. Buck ls being
discriminated against snd would
point out to those who feel he
should be banned from the cam-
pas, that liberty of speech wss one
of the fundamental things for
which the war was fought," Dr.
Birney added.

More than 350 students jammed Arts 100 Thursday noon
and, following a heated Parliamentary Forum debate, voted
almost unanimously to permit the Social Problems Club presentation of LPP national leader Tim Buck as, a campus
A surprise resolution proposing formation of a co-ordinating committee authorized to bring speakers of all political
faiths to the campus, was also passed, although many students
refused to vote.
General criticism was that no time was given for discussion of the second resolution.
AMS president Ted Kirkpatrick       '	
said he endorsed the idea of a
controlling group and added that
the question would •'probably" be
brought up at the regular student
council meeting Monday.
The debate was opened by Cliff
Greer. Defending the resolution,
he declared that although "personally a mortal enemy of the Communists," he considered it entirely
wrong to restrict their speakers.
• "To determine the truth, one
must hear all of the parties," he
He charged that "political faith
alone" was tht reason for student
council's refusal to permit IPC to
present Tlm Buck.
Stewart Chambers, first speaker
for the opposition, attacked the
resolution on the grounds that the
Social Problems club was "controlled" by LPP students.
"The LPP is obnoxious and
stinking to tht nostrils of decent
people everywhere. Thoy took over
a club which was minding its
own business, and, in direct contravention to a strong majority
vote of all students, rt-eetabllshed
tht club with the sols view of
bringing their own views to beei
constantly upon the student body."
Bob Prittie, second speaker defending the resolution, said most
members of tht SPC were not La-
bof^jiolreiivts. -* - •••*- •
He pointed out that the club had
presented no LPP speakers Otis
"Harold Winch and John Dieftn-
baker havt been invited snd they
are hardly Communists."
"What better way of combatting
communism is there than learning
as much about it as possible?" he
Prittie said student council's refusal had established a bad precedent whtn compered with the policy ef other universities in presenting speakers ef different polkl-
cal faiths.

Last February, the question "Should
branches of political parties be permitted to
organize as clubs on the campus?" was put
before the student body. A large majority
of the 2100 students who cast ballots answered NO to that question.
The result of that plebiscite, however, does
not give the Student Council the power to
use it as an excuse to forbid political speakers to appear before student audiences.
In fact, there was among students who
voted NO on the plebiscite considerable sen-
timent to this effect: it is desirable to ban
political clubs as such because they might
tend to cause needless and wasteful friction
and because they would probably thwart
the realization of objective study among stu-
dents of varying political beliefs; but it is
moat desirable to encourage tha study of
those beliefs go that UBC graduates mitfit
leave the unieraity better prepared to live
an Canadian citizens,
And that study involves-listening to the
pleas of all political parties, no matter how
distasteful some of them might be to some
people,. In such a category could be placed
the proposed talk to be given on the campus
by Tim Buck, who hag already spoken at
other universities, apparently without serious harm to their good names.
Mr. Buck is still free to speak in any city
in Canada. Because of his record, which
seems to many Canadiana to be rather un
savory, he probably gets very little response from citizens apart from those who
already belong to his party. But it is also
true that at the present time, uie LPP is
exercising an influence in .this country far
greater than its strength at the polls would
indicate. For that reason alone, it is desirable that UBC students at least be given
the chance to hear what Mr. Buck has to
say. It is then the right of the undergraduates to accept or reject his philosophy.
If Mr. Buck is objectionable and cause for
possible harm to the University's good name,
that is a matter for the Board of Governors
to decide, and not a matter for arbitrary decision by the Student Council.
According to statements attributed in the
daily press to President Kirkpatrick, the
Student Council was concerned that Mr.
Buck's appearance on the campus would
bring discredit to the University and cause
strife among the students. If and .when
Mr. Buck speaks at UBC, he will probably
be heard by a limited audience, be reported
in the press in just the same manner as if
he were speaking to any other Vancouver
audience, and then forgotten by most everyone.
As matters stand at present, the strife and
discredit hawe already been brought about
by the Council's inept handling of the whole
The Children's Hour
Writing a column is strictly a business for
a Jaundiced iWeiTmy sloe-eyed seraphim.
Like the chicken and the egg, it is open to
debate whether the liver leads to the column
or tha column to the river. Anyway, one
leads to another and we all have to suffer.
Those of'you who cut your wisdom teeth
on the American Mercury and other highbrow magazines, only to lose them on Ranch
Romances, may remember old Henry L.
Mencken, that embattled pamphleteer who
was variously known as "The Sage of Baltimore" and "The Man Who Hates Everything".
Henry was sure enough, an oldgrump, of
course, but the second appelation is a bit
overstated. He didn't hade everything—
only those things he ever saw, read, or heard.
Funny thing, though—many a man who
loved all he saw is long dead by his own
hand; while Henry, his face Soured into a
perpetual wry grin, lives happily on. As
happily as a sage in Baltimore.
"Only a man" (says Henry, reciting a
long list of madnesses peculiar to the American Scene) "who was born with a petrified
diaphragm can fail to go to bed grinning
from ear to ear, and awake every morning
with the eager, unflagging expectations of
a Sunday-school superintendent touring the
Paris peep-shows."
Well, Henry, with the loosest diaphragm
you ever saw, I can carry a grouch right into
bed and out again the next day, as easy as
apple pie.
An d that's my grouch. Apple pie, I mean.
Apple pie and cheese and American advertising. And the sort of slovenly, maudlin,
folksy, pseudo-earthy, downright phoney imbecility that can pay upwards ol $2000 a
color page just to say seme bottled bellywaah
is u "AmeriOnn as apple pie and cheese".
And worse, to have a hundred million people beheve It.
Get a load of this letnonsy extract: ". . . .
Your favorite soda fountain and the American way of Ufe go side by side like apple
pie and cheese . . ."
. Aad thig, with variations, courtesy of the
tsJOfc. Army Recruiting Service, in an ad-.
VMrtiaement which can only be taken as an
attempt to convince one and all that "G.I."
is short form for "Godforsaken Idiot": ". . .
he brought a way of life — as American ea
hot dogs and infectious as a boy's grin —
qualities the enemy thought incompatible
with tough fighting ability . . ."
Not mind you: "... as American as 3.5
per cent beer and infectious as Typhoid
Mary . . ." which I offer, free of charge, as
fighting ability, too.
How long will that drivel go on? Oh,
both being quite compatible with tough
until the boys decide tha average American
male is Vermonty as sirup, as taciturn as
Coolldge, as self-reliant as a New Englander,
as hickory as Dan'l Boone, or something.
Who started it? God only knows. I believe the first printed error in this direction
is to be found in the works of a sort of gallus-
snapping Edgar Guest called Eugene Field,
who, about 1880, indited this deathless little
"No matter what conditions
Dyspeptic comes to feaze (?)
The best of all physicians
Is Apple-pie and cheese."
The name of the poem is—you guessed it.
Some of you may remember seeing a
movie by name of "Over Twenty-One" not
so long ago. Anyway, the hero in that opus
had a similar attack when, as valedictorian
of his O.T.C. class, he settled the problems
of this world by reading from an editorial
written by Irene Dunne and entitled: "Ihe
World and Apple Pie". Shortly afterward
Japan capitulated and Hitler took his own

Week-end Review
And Preview Q
A Community Arts CouneU was
formed in Vancouver this week. It
seemed a progressive idea, so this
column charged off to attend its
formative session.
It wss a moderately dull evening,
livened toward the end by Dr.
Sedgewick who treated tht matter
of tltctions vtry summarily and
kept moving that tho nominations
be doted.  All nominations.  All
Dr. Sedgewick gave as his reason for this sttming impudence
the dtlsetablllty of tho proposed
slate for a Board of Directors and
Executive Officers, which he said
could not be improved by addition
or elimination.
This column would take issue on
that point. This column feels it
would have been rendered even
•       •
It was not made quite clear to
what extent die Government (Provincial or Municipal) had committed Itself to actual financial support of the Council; and whether
financial support, if forthcoming,
would be in the nature of a definite yearly grant, or the more makeshift guise of emergency tiding-
over, of the Council.
The economic basis of such a
community project is important If
it be left in tht hands of interested and wealthy patrons lt will not
be likely to further really repre-
mort delectable, and possibly more
use.'ul, by the addition of some
more actively practising artists,
and by tht elimination of some of
the "distinguished personages" who
made it a Uttle too delectable for
our particular palette. Wo feel
that the stated object of tho Council . . ."to increase and broaden
the opportunities for Vancouver
citizens to enjoy and to participate
in cultural activities" .. . would,
undsv wisee eucuaMtsswosrhemsee
possible of realisation.
Another point which could stand
clarification and criticism is the
economic aspect of the Council. It
is to be financed, it says, in three
ways ... by Membership fees of
11.00 for Individuals, 12.50 for Organizations; by Sustaining Membership fees or Gifts of $10.00 or
over; and by Government aid.
sentatlve artistic activity. No one
would wish to 'bar capable assistance in time or money from any
source, but for such an Arts Council to function truly for all tht
people of the community its financial control should root rather in
disinterested hands. And it should,
we feel, act as a bank on whieh
member organizations can call not
only for information and guidance
but for more realistic monetary
support as well when sny community arts project would be
blocked for lack of funds.
This Community Arts Council
haa grown out of the recent Junior League survey of "The Alts
and Our Town". Their report on
this survey shows care, and it indicates in many ways the existence of real problems. But ln
reading "The Arts and Our Town"
we felt that some wrong tenses
were used in important places. For
instance In a paragraph like this
. . . ''For a period the people became subject to the* machine. Life
was impersonal, specialised, and
fragmentary. It no longer had
wholeness. City life was sordid,
filled with fear, competition for a
livelihood, ond with little creativity
for tht tverage parson. Leisure
tlaJs* hsd lott its meanMa-contri-
butins to living."
This period, we (would assart, is
aot over. lite for tht majority of
tht people who live in "our twon"
is still pretty 'sordid, filled with
fear, competition for a livelihood,
and with little creativity for the
average person*.
Art in our town, though the report does not anywhere definitely
state it, does not now spring from
the life and work of the people. It
is lost somewhere, Its reality submerged in cheap glmcrack entertainment for all, and polite patronage fay an elite.
There are people, we feel, seriously Interested In Art in its social context and some of these
people live in Vancouver. Borne of
them probably helped prepare tht
Junior League report, "The Arte
and Our Town". We hope some of
them art among tht people eJtoted
to the Board of Directors and Executive Officers of the Community
Arts Council.

specifically sgslnst tht propriety
of the Social Problems Club being accepted as a politically unbiased body compttent to bring
to tht campus, in fair and unprejudiced fashion, speakers of tat
various political faiths. To that

Whtn tht vote was called on
the resolution taking that a board

parties to tht University, several
prominent L.PP. members stood
to vote against it but were shouted down by crys of don't vote.
No man stands to vote against

be that these' people wort prepared to vote against it.

It is our opinion that the Student CouncU, in refusing to sllow

lt is contrary to tht prindplej
of freedom of speech because in

Swimmers Plan
Big Splash Party
In the past, Varsity's annual
splash party bas been strictly a
hen affair,* but this year, tentatively dated for November 30, the
party promises to be one of thc
major events of the men's intramural season.
Women's Intramural manager
Jackie Sherman, faced with the
problem of finding a pool for thc
coed splashers, has joined forces
with athletic director Doug Whittle and his boys to produce a
gigantic intramural event for men
ond women alike.
Because cf the difference in
men's and women's intramural
systems, the events wiU be run off
separately. Miss Sherman report*
that there may be a novelty race
induding boys and girls, but thu
point has yet to be deddeo. /uU
details of the events wUl t*. published in the Ubyssey as soon as
they are released by co-producer!

Spots Ruin Debut
For Hockey Team
UBC Thunderbirds made a somewhat dismd debut in the Pacific
Coast Junior Hockey League on
Wednesday night, when they absorbed an 11-3 drubbing at tha
hands of Vancouver White Spots.
However, the game was not nearly
as one-sided as fhe score would
indicate and etmt smart god-
kttping by Roy Werral in tht
Vancouver note robbed tho Vanity
crew of severd goals. Tho Thunderbirds were seriously handicapped by lack of practice end will
undoubtedly Improve as the season goes on.
There was not much to choose
between the two teams in the first
period. Mac Porteous drew Ant
blood for UBC on a pass from Jim
Routledge at the 13 minute mark
but Kenny Reeves evened It up
three minutes later.
In the second period Levitt took
over netmindmg chores from Bob
Smith and spent a very uncomfortable twenty minutes as the
Spots got into high gear and fired
pucks at him from aU angles. "Seven goals were soored before Hugh
Berry clicked on a breakaway with

Vancouver added three more
goals ln the lad period dthough
the play was fairly even.
A total of seven penalties was
handed out, including majors to
Terry Nelford and Reeves for
fighting, but dthough the Thunderbirds fdled to take advantage,
the White Spots scored three of
their goals while they had the
extra man.
There was a very small crowd
in attendance. In the future a
good cheering section would give
thc team some much needed support. Tho 'Birds travel to the

Bob Osborne emphasizes the fact
that if tht "Birds were to play the

be a distinct departure from the

beginning of the ytar.
