Action  Urged On Massey  Report
Although they did not agree
on whether Canada has a distinctive culture Dr. Barnett
Savery and Dean Geoffrey
Andrew did agree on what is
needed to foster such a culture
as they opened University
Week in the Auditorium Monday noon.
Discussing "The University
and the National Culture," b,e-
fore a sparse crowd of 150
students, Dr. Savery and Dean
Andrew both urged the development of the humanities
through the immediate implementation of the Masey Report.
The icientist's point of
view will be heard in tha
Auditorium at noon today
when Dr. Mcintosh and Dr.
Velkoff discuss, "Over-
crowded    Universities!
Should Standards Be Raised?"
Stoutly    maintaining    that
search Council, so should the
Dr.  Savery
humanities receive aid through
the establishment of a Can-
Canada does have a distinctive culture, Dean Andrew
urged that as science receives
aid through the National Re-
ada Council as advocated by
the   Massey  Commission.
Canada is not deficient in
the arts, said Dean Andrew,
it is just that they have not
had the stimulation necessary
to develop them "We must
have a balanced culture. Our
artists must have freedom
from penury."
"If you were excited about
the Massey Report," Dean Andrew told his small audience,"
we would have a Canada
Council." "The government
quivered on the brink of establishing a Council and then
Dean Andrew. "Give it
some thought and put pres-
through tha organisations to
which you belong. It is tima
tha Government recognised
tha nead."
Dr. Savery, classifying himself as an untypical American,
maintained that Canada, like
America is too young to have
a national culture.
Canada has regional cultures m Quebec, Nova Scotia,
the Prairies and the Pacific
Coast, said Dr. Savery but
has no distinctive national culture.
"Mounties, Eskimos and
hockey," is the extent of Canada's culture according to Dr.
In turning to the universities role ln the developement
of a culture Dr. Savery did
however, find a common meeting ground with Dean Andrew.
...Dean  Andrew
Dr. Savery deplored the
turning away from the humanities in universities all
over the world. "There are
too many lost souls who don't
know what they want to do,"
he maintained.
The eternal question, "What
is Man and What ls His Relation to the Universe?" is not
discoverable in science said
Dr. Savery.* Like Dean Andrew, he turned to the Massey
Report as a partial solution
to the problem.
The implementation of the
Massey Report would start
people in pursuit of all their
capacities and enable them to
strike a happy medium in life
instead of pursuing just one
of their capacities, said Dr.

Model U.N. Outdoes
McCarthy, But No T.V.
The Model U.N. Assembly, first event of University
Week, provided last night's spectators with more entertainment than McCarthy on TV.
The real issue of the evening,-^
a motion to establish a United
Nation's police force, was almost submerged in an interchange of truly Vishinsky-like
invectives with heated protests
from the Western bloc.
Shouts of "point of order" —
"this is an attempt to foist the
warlike ambitions of the U.S.
upon this assembly;"' "point of
order;" "this is a disgraceful
defamation of the U.S.;" "point
of order;"  filled the air.
Held in the women's gy(m bedecked with posters of world
flags, the Assembly tried to
stick closely in procedure to
the workings of the real U.N.
and the policies of its members.

A variety show in the best
vaudeville tradition is highlighting this week's Open House
Combining the talents of a
cross section of campus organizations the show will be presented twice this week. Wednesday night for the public at

The extravaganza is featuring the Latin American rhythms
of Jugo and his Afro-Cuban
Mambo Masters, excerps by
Mussoc from their hit musical
"Bonanza" and top Sets from
the Dance club show.
Other items on the program
will include a presentation by
the Player's Club of scenes
from "The Torchbearer," folk
songs by the A' Cappella choir
and vocal selections by the
UBC Glee club.
As part of University Week,
the variety show will endeavor
to interest the students and the
general public in the diversified
activities of campus clubs.
Student Council Monday night aproved a-proposal of the
Committee on Constitutional Revision to lower the qurum at
a general meeting to 600 students or ten percent of the enrollment.
The proposal to drop the fall
meeting was adopted and additions were made to the powers
of the treasurer to compensate
for this.
It was decided that the budgets of clubs and societies shall
be submitted to the treasurer
ten days before the September
budget deadline. The budgets
will then be approved by two
student council meetings and
printed in the Ubyssey in detail.
Objections of members in the
clubs concerned will be taken
at the second of the two conucil
"Club budgets are too complex for a large group to work
over properly and it is advisable under these circumstances
to let student council decide,"
said Public Relations Officer
Danny Goldsmith.
"The smaller group is more
manageable and arguing in student council will have more effect than in a general meeting
where students eat their lunch,"
said Vice-President, Wendy Sutton.
Further proposals accepted
were that the quorum be present when the vote is taken, and
that the Student Council shall
have full control over all activities under AMS.

Some of the constitutional revisions proposed by Student Council Monday night should be welcomed. They removed unnecessary deudwqod from the AMS charter, and
Council should receive credit for doing this.
But eliminating fall general meetings and lowering the
quorum to 600 students or 10 percent of the. enrollment are
two recommendations not to be welcomed. They would in
no way make for better student government at UBC.
Lowering the quorum for general meetings is a recommendation which is entirely unjustified. Serious difficulties
at general meetings because of the lack of a quorum are
unknown at UBC.
There is no need for a measure to "expedite general
meetings" when the existence of workable meetings is facing
no threat. _
Instead,.we would point out the serious danger of small
groups determining the policies and actions of the AMS. This
would be very real with a reduced quorum. Meetings could
be easily "packed."
Councillors argue that they can pass the AMS budget
"just as efficiently" as can a general meeting. Good government Is not concerned wholly with efficiency, however.
Democratic government—which we believe to be the
bfiet government yet devised—is notorious for its inefficiency.
Dictatorship—which is universally abhorred—boasts the one
recommendation of increased efficiency.
Talk of "efficiency" in this instance is foolish. There has
never been any suggestion of fall general meetings impeding tihe operations of the Ama Mater Society.
On the contrary, they have done just the opposite. Even
apart from the budget, they have provided students with an
early opportunity to put through needed reforms and initiate
new programs.
The budget is most important, however. We think that
students should have at all times the best opportunity possible tp have tfheir wishes adopted—but particularly when it
comes to spending their own money.
A general meeting provides the best opportunity.
Altogether, the two recommendations concerning general
meetings would not serve to give the students what they
want. The best government is that which is most sensitive
to the will of all the people.
Whit by
It NFCUS Necessary?
The following letter appeared in the McGill Daily of
February 8,  1955.
Editor, The Ubyssey:
It is my opinion, having
attended U.B.C. under the .
NFCUS Interregional Scholarship Plan, that NFCUS is unnecessary for the plan to be
NFCUS does not publicize
the exchange adequately, advertising is meagre, few students know of the plan in time,
and few students make enquiries or take advantage of
it. As my room-mate was the
NFCUS chairman I happened
to learn of the exchange. This
function could more adequately be filled by the SEC External Affairs Chairman.
NFCUS does not bear the
expense of the scholarships:
the fees are waved by the
visited University and Student
Arrangements regarding acceptance and courses to be
taken at the visited University are made between the Universities and the (Individual
students. The Universities are
extremely helpful in this respect. NFCUS's part consists
of printing the application
forms. Other than this NFCUS
does nothing, for il needs do
On the personal level, I
found as have others lhal
NFCUS does next lo nothing
Luckily f traveled West witli
friends and found lodging
through tiie University.1 heard
nothing from NFCUS until
foajr weeks after I arrived
when it belatedly offered aid
It is true that most students
can fend for themselves hul
certain personal problems may
arise and NFCUS offered no
useful assistance a I this level
The University Honshu; Ser
vces can adequately handle one
one of these problems. Or-
ganizalons such as the Scarlet
Key and Red Wings exist on
must campuses and could
easily meet the few exchange
students as they already do
for foreign students.
NFCUS does not at present
fulfill its functions well, but
more important, it is not nec-
ccssary but only encumbers
the plan. I think the Interregional Scholarships are a
wonderful oppourtunity for
students, but NFCUS has far
from warranted having its
name attached to them and
certainly is not an essential
prefix to the exchange.
Pete Sims, B.Com. 4
We wish to point out that
our experience with the
NFCUS exchange exactly parallels that of Mr. Sims. The
only help offered comes from
the respective heads of departments and registrars of the
universities concerned.
Jim Craig's committee endeavoured to give advice to
students interested in an exchange this year but this is the
only instance we have noted
of an NFCUS attempt to justify its claim to the exchange
We heartily endorse thc idea
of the Interregional Scholarships but suggest that the plan
be divorced from NFCUS and
handed completely to the university administration who do
the arranging of courses and
pay for 1 lu* scholarships anyway. This would at least give
credit   where  credit   is due,

Third Year Arts
Last year 10 countries signed
trade agreements with the
USSR. Everyone of these nations is in the Western orbit.
Belgium alone, received a
Soviet order for $140,000,000
in machinery and textiles out
of these deals.
The USSR has placed large
orders for fish from Britain
and Iceland; butter from the
Netherlands, Denmark, Australia and New Zealand; meat,
cheese, hides, lard and wool
from Argentine; textiles from
France, and ships from Finland, Denmark and Britain.
It is interesting to note that
every single item listed above
could be supplied in quantity
by Canada. As a matter of
fact our west coast shipyards
are deplorably idle, our dairy
industry has seen better days
and our eastern textile mills
have been virtually abandoned.
The intention of these remarks, of course, ls not to defend the lily-white diplomatic
role of Russia. They merely
serve to show that the USSR
does not have to manufacture
crises to excuse diplomatic
The policies of the West have
in the past ten years furnished more than enough fuel for
international provocation. Russia   may   have   utilized   these
"made  in   USA"   policies   for
her  own   ends,  but  just  who
committed the original sin is
another question.
However, another approach
towards the USSR is developing in Europe—an approach
that is far end wldt tha most
constructive   and   conducive
to lasting world peace.
Tha outcome of this new
policy has resulted in tha
creation of reassuring economic ties with the land of
tha Soviet*. If anything is
stronger in this aga of materialism than ideological differences it is economic interests.
However  Canada   does   not
trade with the USSR—not to
any extent at least. Why not?
Well, for one thing it is USA's
policy not to trade with the
home of the Bolsheviks: In
short, it is part of the cold
war. Why, then, does Finland,
which was openly attacked by
Russia a few years ago, contract a $125,000,000 trade agreement with Russia? And why
does Britain, a sitting duck
for the ballyhooed Russian Imperialism, go on an unprecedented Soviet trade kick?
These questions are even
simpler to answer than the previous one—economic necessity,
Now, Londoh says, Britain
is enjoying an "economic
boom." It is as much an 6con-
omic necessity for Canada to
trade with the USSR as it is
for Britain or Finland.
The federal government is
just now vehemently denying
a "recession" while moving to
effect a national housing pro-,
gram, increased unemployment
benefits and increased pension
When   the   federal   government starts denying a slump, ,
the past  has  shown  us  it  is
time to act. Denial implies recognition, if you will.
However, Canadian businessman want not only tirade,
but profitable trade. According to a Finnish economist who has Just written
a book on the Soviet trade
question as far as his country
is concernad it is extremely
Indian businessmen also are
pleased with their recent trade
agreements with the USSR. The
Soviet Union is the first major
country ever to recognize India's currency in matters of
Even what little trado tlje
United Stales does with'Russia
is highly satisfactory to the
American businessman. The
irony of these deals is that Soviet manganese is being used
as parts for U.S. armaments ...
All the above facts have
been attacked as propaganda
for the Soviet "trade war."
But tha Idea of the USSR
hoping to "split the Western
CbtlWriai" by trading with
them does not bear up under
close examination.
Hardld Stassen maintains
that the United States cannot
stop western countries from
trading with the Soviet Union
because they need that trade.
Further restrictions, he said,
"would develop an unfriendliness on the part of the people"
townrds the U.S. It would "add
to thc crdttotnic strain in the
Western nations and tend to
divide them."
Here we see that the converse of thc above speculation
is true
Rhys M. Sale, president of
Ford Motors Co. of Canada,
said last October he considered
U.S. trade policies put an unwelcome strain on the Western
Canada's Prime Minister has
called for Canadian trade with
the world for stabilities' sake.
The Lfendon "Economist"
speaks for British Businessmen whan it reports of Soviet trade, "tha prospect is
staggering. One may dislike
the regime but it would be
foolish to Ignore its economic
This view is extremely
true from the military aspect as well.
Last May the Canadian
Chamber of Commerce was
griping about our "collossal
trade deficit" and frowned on
Canada's increasing economic
reliance on the unstable y.S.
Finland saved herself from
nny such "slump" last year by
hastily signing a six year trading agreement with the USSR
— her businessmen have never
had it   so good.
Probably the biggest hindrance to post war Soviet trade
wilh Iho west was United
States' Mutual Defense Assistance Control Act ( 1951). This
"law" threatened economic reprisals against any wdsfern
country which deigned lo trade
with the USSR. Canadian business themselves have never too
openly condemned trade with
It may be coincidence but the
only effect the above low hod
was to increase Western trade
dependence on the U.S. It appears as just another device to
maintain the dollar world.
Canada has since found out
the folly of putting all our
trade eggs in thc U.S. basket.
The Federal Government last
August succeeded in removing
a few restrictions on Soviet
trade. If little, economically
limited Finland can make such
a killing, Canada should really
be   able to go to town.
But Canada was not even
represented last summer at the
Leipzig trade show which was
East—West in scope.
There is no question as to
the USSR's disposition towards   trade   with   Canada.
In March they eagerly replied to Trade Minister
Howe's statement hinting at
Canadian-USSR trade talks.
They even went to the length
of submitting a list ef goods
they wanted from Canada.
Winston Churchill quite-
correctly considers trade with
Russia as a major step towards " . . . . our living together in increasing comfort," with the USSR.
The "U.S. News" soon after
summed up the situation wit h
this bit of deathless prose:
"Western Businessmen and
officials are lined up, waiting
to see Kremlin trade experts
... a big new market ... is
opening up, anxious to buy
Western goods. And they have
things to sell that tfie West
It is all very fine to be militarily strong but a nation today

"* lack of such aid.
Controversy between private
enterprise and public ownership is a "dead issue" in, thc
opinion of Sir Douglas Copland,
Australian High Commissioner
to Canada.
Speaking to a group of economics students noon Monday, Sir
Douglas discussed the responsibilities of public administration
and changing theories of political  thought.
"All political groups are beginning to realize the economies
of modern nations are destined
to be a mixture of private and
public enterprise." he said.
"Equalization of income and
opportunity will soon become
the dominant concern of world
governments." he continued.
Drawing from his observations
in Australia he mentioned some
problems of the welfare state;
such as, maintaining full employment.
"Future historians will remember this age as one in which
governments and society made
it their major aim to further
the welfare of the common
man"   he  added.
Concluding his speech Sir
Copland suggested that although
thc struggle for security was a
very legitimate one it should
not be overemphasized in the
light of other present day problems.

IHA   Students  Tour
Capital Meet MP's
During the weekend 27 UBC students made the "grand
tour" of B.C.'s provincial capital.
The students, members of.International House, flew to Victoria primarily to become better acquainted with Canadian
parliamentary procedure. The
trip also helped establish an
important objective of the Campus organization which is the
promotion of friendship and understanding.
The itinerary of the group included an introduction to cabinet members and lunch Friday
afternoon with Hon. I. J. Martin. Later a tour was made of
the Parliament Buildings and
students attended as session of
the  legistlature.
In thc evening the group
watched a play at Victoria College and were entertained by
the student body.
Saturday morning the students visited Canadian Naval
Establishments at Esquimau, and

Condemned  Gym  Forces
Golden Bears Out To Coast
Annual   Basketball
Rivalry   At   Stake
Two supporting tresses that no longer provide support for
the University of Alberta's gym may force that school's Golden
Bears to journey to UBC this weekend to renew their annual
rivalry with the Thunderbirds.
Jack Pomfret's Birds were
scheduled to leave for Edmonton Wednesday to do battle with
Maury Van Vleit's crew in the
annual best-of-three basketball
EXPECTANT COACH Jack Pomfret looks confident as
his 'Birds practise for a surprise game. Alberta Golden

In  Great  Upset
Some teams manage to score a few upsets in a season but
fold in the stretch. That is the acid test of a team's ability, and
the test the Jayvess seem to have passed.
"^ They proved they were no
flash in the pan as they came
through in fine style Saturday
night to sweep the series for the
Senior A Men's title in four
straight games.
But last Friday two supporting tresses in Alberta's hastily
constructed wartime gymnasium
collapsed causing a hasty change
in plans.
Golden Bear's mentor Van
Vliet advocated the cancellation of the series. But UBC's
Athletic Director, R. J. (Buz)
Phillips thought the series would
be a 'natural' this weekend at
UBC in conjunction with Open
Phillips and Men's Athletic
Association President Bob Brady met with Open House chairman Jacques Barbeau late yesterday afternoon and Barbeau
gave the series the go-ahead
for Friday and Saturday night.
But there is a fly in the ointment — Alberta's President, Andrew Stewart. President Stewart is of the opinion that the
Golden Bears have done enough
travelling this season and that
a trip to the coast would be too
At press time, Dean Whit
Matthews, chairman of the
Men's Athletic Committee was
'.rying to reach President Stewart on the phone to see if some
arrangement could be worked
out. ( • j
Last year the Golden Bears
were billed as the best team
in Canada, college or senior
amateur, and were heavy favorites  to clip Bird's wings.
Instead Birds sent the Bears
back into hibernation as they
ran over them with ease in two
straight games. All indications
point to the same result if
Bears venture out to the coast
again this year.
Gym Well
Never    underestimate
power of a woman.
At least Bus Phillips doesn't.
He's hiring girls, or to be more
specific, members of the girl's
grass hockey team.
All engineers planning future
raids are asked to remember
the code of chivalry they were
taught before they left their
mother's knee.
All wages earned by these
girls are going to projected $20,
000 fund which will send a Vancouver women's grasshockey
team to Australia, next summer.
And as many of the travellers come .from UBC's champion
team, the girls felt they should
do their bit.
Or better yet, they might remember what a weapon those
hooked sheilelaghs can be when
swung by an irate lassie.

After thoroughly upsetting
Adanacs, the Jayvees continued
to win and clobbered the Eilers.
The outcome of Saturday
night's final was very uncertain.
Half time score was 24-23 for
the Jayvees. However, the
year's Conference basketball I Bat)y Birds poured on the coal
play when Central blundered in the second half and ran away
their way to » viotnrv over fr°™ the favored Jewelers to
a victory   over
Eight members of Central's
squad are married. Both teams
looked like a bunch of hen pecked husbands.
Though the strains of "Waltzing Matilda" would have been
proper accompaniment for most
of the activity, there was a few
times when the tempo speeded
up enough to give the crowd
something to yell at.
Central took an early lead.
With 10 minutes gone, McLeod
tied it 11-11 and a score by Carter placed Varsity in front by
two points. Central found the
range then and jumped to a 37-
26 halftime advantage.
As the second half got under
way it looked like the Birds
might make a game out of it
as they chopped the Wildcat's
lead to 3 points. Another Bird
basket, this time by Ernie Nyhaug and   the  score  was  43-42.
At thfis time Mrs. Heacox
said a few words to her husband. He passed the word
amongst the other members of
Central's team and within a
few minutes they made the score
read 50-42. in their favor and
were scoring easy lay ups as
the game ended UBC—Mcl.eod

win 54-46.
The question is, were all these
games upsets? Apparently it
hasn't occurred to anyone that
this may be one of the better
Jayvee   teams   in   local  history.
At any rate, it looks like
some able reinforcements are
developing for next year's Birds.
Mike Frazer took his turn
as the big man for the Jayvees
Saturday, leading the attack
with 21   points.
