Platform scuffle follows Tim Buck speech Tuesday.  Charges may  be  laid.
Critical  Students .Say;
Sharp criticism of Communist Tim Buck's "reception"
here Tuesday was voiced by
students polled following the
Reactions ranged from Ben
Trevino, Arts 2, who called
the meeting "a mess" to Engineer's Peter Meekison who
called H "a riot."
Political club leaders were
• unanimous in condemning the
apples,   orangea.   lunch   bags
and running ahoes thrown at
the LPP national leader.
Said Social Credit president
Mel Smith: "It was deplorable.
Buck did not have much on
the ball but he should have
been permitted to 'speak his
Conservative chief Phil Go-
van called the meeting a "poor
display on the part of the students." Govan blamed Ubyssey
write-ups for encouraging students to throw things at Buck.
"It is a tradition only because
The Ubyssey says it is a tradition," he said.
Ranking Liberal member
John Bossons called the exhibition the "childish actions of
a minority of students still
thinking in high school terms."
He called for "strong steps"
against spectators who threw
things and ripped banners.
Bossons—also president of
campus United Nations Club
—added: "This affair wil give
UBC a bad name in Vancouver
and abroad. We cannot condone raking UBC's name over
CCF president Bill Mar-
chack said he would "hate to
think the audience was made
up of universlyt students."
"But then," he added, "maybe they threw things because
they did not like him."
Campus LPP president Jim
MacFarlan and LPP club member John Hogarth called the
heckling: "the work of an organised group." MacFarlan
claimed he saw a student outside the auditorium recruiting
a gang to invade the meeting.
He declined to comment further.
Student council vice-president Ron Longstaffe called the
pelting "a poor show that has
no place on this campus. Tim

Press Charges  Later
A formal complaint will be laid today by UCC President Al
Thackray against disorderly students at the near-riotous Tim
Buck meeting in the Auditorium Tuesday.
♦ ,
Buck was our guest. The News
the mud by irresponsible students."
Herald editorial reprimand
was well taken."
University president N. A.
M. MacKenzie issued the following statement when informed of the noon hour incident:
"While I am vigorously opposed to everything Tim Buck
and Communism stands for,
if guests are invited to the
campus they should be given
a fair hearing and treated decently."
The statement continues:
"I am told that the behaviour of students yesterday
was not as violent as that described and that the whole
business was reasonably orderly."
Attending the meeting was
Dr. Gordon M. Shrum. who
commented: "I thought the
students made a mistake when
they tossed the fruit on the
stage, but otherwise, it was
good fun for everybody."
Only polled student in favor
of the fray was Commerce student Gordon Gimple who said
he hopes Buck "will come out
every year."
"Next year," said Gimple,
"we should get bigger and
better tomatoes."
While against the general
fracas Commerceman Pat Ker-
naghan said: "When Tim Buck
called Russian concentration
camps fairy tales I would have
thrown apples too."
Student Investigating committee will probe action of students
who attempted to make off with
an LPP banner from the stage
after the meeting. They will
also investigate students who attempted to disrupt the meeting
by throwing lunches, fruit and
garbage at Buck.
"I feel it only my duty to attempt to protect our constitutional clubs against abuse from
any other group or individuals,"
said Thackray. "We only hope
the people of Vancouver do not
think this sort of conduct is condoned by the majority of the
student body."
LPP President Jim MacFarlan
refused to press charges against
anyone, but expressed indignation at students' actions. "This
shameful display was obviously
organized in advance by a small
group ... It is regrettable that
a large group of students allowed themselves to be led into
what at the time seemed like a
big joke," he said.
Speaking under the sponsorship of the campus LPP club,
Buck's opening remarks about
the Geneva Conference were
greeted with a loud chorus of
mixed cheers and boos. "Geneva
will open up tremendous possibilities of economic expansion .
because previous policies have
been based on a world war," he
said, referring especially to
Cries of "come the revolution!" greeted his statement that
it is not likely there will be a
world war.
When Buck attempted to outline the Columbia River power
situation hecklers, who composed the majority of the audience, hindered him from putting across his views. Mock
cheers and shouted insults were
mingled with a few exasperated
pleas of "shut up and give him
9 chance."
A constant volley of lunch
papers and fruit peppered students in the front rows who
were in the direct line of fire.
Shrieks of "More Beer!" greeted his assertion that if Canada
is to enjoy prosperity itv peace
she must gear her economy to
'tween classes
Heckling heightened in the
question period which followed
his speech and several students
moved to the front to get a better aim at their target. Buck
knocked   his   microphone   over
in an attempt to avoid an apple j Clubhouse,   Friday,   Nov.   4

Dangerous Fools
.The most controversial thing that Tim Buck did during
Jbi* .speech in the Auditorium Tuesday was to address his
audience.as "ladies and gentlemen."
Looking back on that mob scene we feel a bit frightened
and more than a little ashamed of our own university.
The democratic form of government has been characterized
as the most inefficient form of government; we in the Western
world-sacrifice the efficiencies of the monolithic state for the
tug-of-war of the democratic process in the hope that wisdom
may prevail.
Tim Buck may have erred in his opinions but he did not
err in his right to express them.
As the leader of a nationally recognized political party,
some of whose members have sat in, and commanded the attention of Parliament, Tim Buck deserved our attention. As
a guest speaker on the campus, he deserved the common
courtesy that any host extends to any guest.
He got neither. He was made the subject of mob persecution reminicent of Munich beer hall scenes of the 1930's; of
German-American Bund scenes of the early 1940's and/or pro-
Peron scenes of the 1950's.
What is frightening is that the scene didn't take place in
a Munich beer hall or at a Bund meeting or in an Argentine
plaza. It took place in the Auditorium of the University of
British Columbia filled to capacity with the supposed "hopes
of the world's future."
The ill-educated, ill-mannered children who turned fanatic
for an hour Tuesday are a danger to the democracy they ig-
norantly beheve they are defending. Nothing furthers the
cause of communism more than the fanaticism of the super-
patriot. The democratic demogague, in purporting to defend
democracy as he sees it, by silencing all who disagree with
him, is just providing grist for the communist mill and of himself
poses, a definite threat to that cause he would support.
The cat-calls and the shouts have died away, the last of
the lunchbags have been swept up and all we can do now is
insure that an exhibition of mob violence is never allowed
to happen on this campus again. '
Tim Buck
. Editor,  The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
If the assembly of students
at the noon hour lecture by
Tim Buck represents the privileged three percent of the
population that is gaining a
higher education. I am disgusted.
Of any group of people, it
eeems to mc that university
students should be the most
. tolerant of the opinions of
others, for they represent , a
country in which the democratic rights-of others,are to be
, preserved.   It   is   opt   only   a
matter of allowing one person
to speak his mind—but, what
is more important, it is a matter of allowing others to listen
to what he has to say.
Those students who came to
the lecture solely to heckle and
who had no intention of considering openly the points
made, are guilty of an attitude
which is completely contrary
to that which a university is
supposed to foster.
To conclude, and 'to relieve
my sense of justice,  I  think
they are extremely Ignorant,
rude and selfish.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,    *
Might 1 ask that you consider
refusing to publish letters to fee
editor over a peiM>eme? The
, leading newspapers throughout
ihe world practise this prwei-
, pie, holdhig (quite rightly) that
any  letter not carrying Ihe
'.writer's real name must necessarily have been written to
shame, and in. any ease clearly
eannot be worthy of construe*
tive consideration.
Last Tuesday your Sounding
Board was dominated by the
tinkling of brass of one "Overseas Graduate," who is plainly
ignorant of both bookstore difficulties and Student Self-Help
Conditions of Hire in a hut-
housed university not yet out
of knee-breeches. I cannot think
an intelligent university graduate from tbe Old World would
have given impatient vent to
such mischievous prattle, but
would have first conceded that
there might be another point
of view and then proceeded
with a considerate and patient
examination of the situation
and relevant factors.
I would be the last to offend
the people of any part of B.C.,
but in conclusion I can only
deduce,   therefore,   that   your
"Oversea s"    correspondent
comes from Vancouver Island.
Vours sincerely,

Editor, Tha Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Where did these liquor laws
in B.C. originate. In response
to questions about this world
of ours, we study philosophy,
the sciences, and anthropology.
Where we can't find the proof
for an action, we seek the probable cause, and that's how we
get involved in theories of origins.
But when we proceed in this
fashion with these B.C. liquor
laws, we find no solution. The
people here face their origin
to progressive western Europe
where liquor enters and promotes the harmony of ordinary living. Did these people
so abhor this condition that
they consented to have these
privileges removed when they
settled a new country?
I accept the fact that Indians
are not allowed to drink because of their immaturity, and
its expression when inebriated.
1 assume that it is this line of
thinking which has given sanction to tbe law forbidding mix-

favourable alteration of these

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I am an average student, who
would like to graduate from
this university—but can I, and
still have a love-life?
The administration says
that if students are to get passing grades, they should spend
two hours of home-study for
each hour spent at the university.
Therefore,  the following
my schedule:
sleeping       7    8 (day)
lectures and
labs 26 (wk.)
home-study     52 (wk.)
trans. 6 Wz (day)
eating      7   2V4 (day)
getting up and prep.
for bed   7   .75 (day)
weekly total hrs.  164,5
hours in a week (7x24) 168.00
168 minus 164.5 equals 3.5.
Three and a half hours free
That give the average student three and one half hours
to work or to visit and see his
girl friend.
Putting that three, arid a half
hours into seeing his girl friend,
it gives the student a half hour
to dress, a half hour to get to
his girl friend's home, a half
hour to get to a spot of entertainment, an hour to watch tbe
entertainment, and an hour to
gtt his girl friend and himself
Wow—two  whole  hours  a
week to spend with his-girl!
Recognizing the advantages,©*
integration pf academic and
[practical work in preparation
for a career, the School of Com*
merce and the Institute of Chartered Accounts have developed
a plan for training Chartered
Accountains which is unique in
Canada in this profession.
While a university degree is
not a prerequisite to being qualified as a Chartered Accountant,
many of the prospective members of this profession will find
greater satisfaction in the broader academic background of a
university education. For these
people, the period of time
required from High School,
through University 'and subsequent qualification as a C.A. is
lengthy. The new course which
is now offered by the University
and the Institute reduces this
time to a minimum.
It is now possible to gain both
a B. Com. degree and membership in the C.A. Institute in just
over six years from University
Entrance standing. The program
for'what is known as the "Combined Course" is, briefly:
(1) One winter session at the
University of B. C. or Victoria College.
(2) Enrolment as an "articled
student" with a firm of
Chartered Accountants.
(3) Six spring-and-summer
periods of 14 weeks each
at the University, alternated  with
(4) Five fall -,and - winter
periods of eight months
each in the office of the
C.A. firm.
During the fall-and-winter
periods the students receive
practical experience and training in the work of a professional
accountant and also take courses
of instruction and examinations
of the Institute of Chartered
Accountants. During the spring-
and-summer, the students complete credits for their Bachelor
of Commerce degrees.
University and Institute instruction fees are paid by the
students' employers and arrangements are usually made for
salaries to be paid on a monthly
basis throughout the year. A
student of fairly modest tastes,
if such exists, may be financially
self-sufficient after the first year
of tbe program.
This is not an easy cdiirse. It
demands concentration and
study., It offers a splendid opportunity to acquire both a University degree and professional
qualification in a relatively short

Buck  Takes  Heckling
With Acid Composure
The man least excited by Tuesday's near riot was the
target—greyihg communist leader Tim Buck.
SEC  Giving
' Away Tickets
[To  Concert
Free tickets anyone?
The Special Events Committee has come to the rescue of
the poor and penniless music
lovers on campus.
SEC chairman Gerry Hodge
announced Monday his committee has bought up a block of
500 tickets to the Amadeus
Quartet of London concert, to
be held next Tuesday in the
Georgia Auditorium.
* The tickets handed out at the
AMS office will not be accepted
unless an AMS card is presented
at the Georgia Auditorium,
Hodge said.
The concert will feature
Haydn, Schubert and Matyas Sets' ber. The highlight of the evening
promises to be the Quartet No.

by the European critic Franz
Reizenstein as "head and shoulders above the others."
College  Riot
ASUS  Still
Up   In   Air
No student parliament can be
established until Artsmen are
organized, Gerry Hodge said
Wednesday elaborating on the
new type of student government
proposed by a group of upper-
year students.
He explained that—under the
proposed scheme—a total of 150
delegates would be selected from
the different faculties and meet
monthly to present student opinion to the cabinet.
Said he: "The 150 delegates
could become better informed
on campus issues than the student body as a whole."
He called for a reorganization
of student council with a smaller
administration delegating many
of the council's present duties
to committees.
The cabinet would be responsible to the 150 delegates under
the novel plan.

bombs and flying beer bottles

of all college football games in

they were defeated by their traditional rival, the University of
Seven students were injured,
and one who was hit by a lime-
filled bag may lose the sight of
one eye. A flying beer bottle
knocked out a Queen's co-ed
and she was sent to hospital.
Gas-filled balloons set adrift
over the packed stadium exploded when touched by cigarettes, and smoke bombs were
also set off. Two other Queen's
students received hand injuries.
Donald MacNay, an ex-Queens
student, was charged in connection with the rioting.
President Sidney Smith of
Toronto University said Monday
that someone may be killed if
the incidents are not stopped,
and indicated he would raise
the question of the desirability
of even finishing out the league
schedule this year.
At the last Toronto-Queen's
game Toronto students ripped
up the supposedly fool-proof
Queen's goalposts, specially
erected to resist students, which
were made of steel and embedded in concrete blocks.

The Canadian Officers'
Training Corps is pleased to
report that the number of applications this year has exceeded expectations. The quality of the applicants has also
been of very high calibre.
Percentage of acceptances has
been as great or greater than
in any previous period.
The Contingent has continued to be one of the largest
and strongest in Canada. Its
success has been greatly facilitated by the fact that its
training areas and particularly its quarters are among the
best in the country. These
facilities were built up during
the war years by contributions
from former members of the
Contingent. They have made
possible a considerable social
and academic life which
would not have been possible
without the wise sacrifice of
these former members.
Applications to the Corps
are continuing to be made
and students who are interested would do well to make
enquiry at an early date while
there are still vacancies available.
Letters have recently gone
out to eligible first year students reminding them of the
opportunity but it should be
noted that applications from
students in higher years are
still acceptable and in most
cases preferred.
Applicants should have the
following qualifications:
(a) An interest in the services (no obligation for service beyond the two-three
year training period is required).
(b) An adequate academic
(c) Necessary physical requirements.

jit was a case of trip, stumble,
and fumble in the first half.

two free throws and by the quarter held a 20-10 lead. Braves
cut the margin to six points by
the half, still on the short end
of a 35-29 score.
UBC rallied in the second half
and tied the game up just seconds into the final quarter. Jim
Carter's Braves then went on to
take a short lead but Marpole
managed to tie the score at 52-52
to force a five-minute overtime
Braves blew the win in the
extra stanza as they were out-
scored 12-5. Best man on the
floor was UBC center, Lance
Stephens who took top scoring
honors with a 15-point performance and also was exceptional
on the boards.
Braves Jim McNee and Mar-
pole's Don Slater followed Stephens with 12 points each.
