Lack   Of    U    Thinking

crisis in university education by Vbyssey editor-in-chief
Les Armour. Thursday Mr. Armour will discuss the trend
toward technical education.)
Ubyssey Editor-in-Chief
Several miles of B.C. forest have been laid waste in the
last jfjeaf" to provide paper for think-piece writers who devote
themselves to pointing out that the national culture is just plain
Even more trees have lilt tha
dust to make room for men who
maintain that North American society, with its roots firrmly wrapped around noiseless flush toilets
and cadillacs with sldewalls, ls
productive mostly of peptic ulcers
and customers for rows of chroma-
plated looney bins.
All    of    these
learned     gentlemen,    unhappily,
are    probably
quite right —■ except for the minor detail that the
very    fact    that
they  are  writing
this  stuff  has  a
tendency to belle
them.   A   society
which questions  its direction and
goals has, at least the nucleus of
revolution within lt.
What disturbs us, however, ls
the fact that our universities, packed with technical education and
moribund with professors of the
humantles who mistake pedantry
for scholarship, are being shunted
above by society.
A university by tradition dedicated to the search for truth,
ought to be the dynamic force
within society.
Yet our universities, intent upon
providing efficient engineers, businessmen, cooks, cowpokes and
lawyers, appear to passively represent the trends with  society.
We have no quarrel with technical education, as such, but we
shudder to see it take full possession of our universities to the point
where honest enquiry becomes a
mere appendage regarded as lux

WINNIPEG — (CUP) — University of Manitoba has voted to
cut Its NFCUS assessment from 20
cents to 10 cents per student, for
this year at l©L*.*»t. The move was
made In the race of a budget which
left the student treasurer almost
no operating surplus on which to
The stipulation was mi.de that
the full 20 cent grant should go
into effect, If finances at the end
of the year permit. However, it i«
considered highly unlikely that
this could bo done.
We become virtually despairing
when we see the attitudes of tTiose
in charge of departments devoted
to the humanities when we note
students forced to swallow miles
of meaningless facts to be parroted hack In proper order on stere-
typed examinations.
The sight of English professors
who dissect poems as though they
were beetles ln a laboratory, of
sociology, professors who talk as
though our existing mores and Institutions were paragons of the
ages to be preserved against rot
at all costs of philosophy professors who talk as though the thinkers of history were mere prop-
ounders of technical Jig-saw puzzles of no significance to everyday   living   positively   revolts   us.
Action   Needed   Immediately
The situation, In fact, has progressed to the point where immediate action is required. Things
are not yet hopeless It is still possible for a UUC student with the
luck of the gods to listen to Blr
ney read poetry, Savery thoughtfully pull the world situation to
pieces and Rose make the burning
of John Has an event of sufficient
significance to eclipse INS's latest
account of the Chicago sex murders.
*llut students will have to do
some serious thinking if ediicatliin
is   not  to  go  the stagnant   way  of
the  Chinese  empires.
We attack these problems not
because we hav.; any more an
swers than the co-ed in the next
seat—but because we are frankly
alarmed and because we think It's
high time students woke up and
did some  thinking.
In the next issues we shall
dig Into them one by' one. The results will not rival the latest issue
of Collossal Comics for reader interest but they might provide the
odd jolt.

Germany To Pay Fees
For Canadian Students
Two full scholarships for Canadian students to study
in Germany next year have been announced by ISS.
The German Federal Republic has awarded to World
University Service (ISS) two scholarships tenable at any. university or institute of higher learning in western Germany for
the 1952-53 academic year.
Fees will be paid, if not by the
university, by the German Federal
Republic and travelling expenses
will be paid from Gernan frontier
to the university and return.   .
There are no restrictions on the
scholarships with regard to race,
sex, nationality, religious or political belief. Preference will be
given to those already advanced
in their studies or who have completed their normal studies and
wish to spend a year in further
specialized study.
The Oerman student community
ln Its present situation has found
lt difficult to make any large-scale
contributions to Oerman students
studying abroad in Canada and ln
other countries.
This problem of aiding and supporting Oerman refugee student is
too great to permit the diversion
of resources outside Germany at
the present time.
Therefore In view of these difficulties the Oerman Federal'TJbv-
eminent bas offered these scholarships on behalf of all German
students as a token expression
if the appreciation felt for the
work of IS£I Ih the'German universities during the past six years.
Applications for these scholarships should be made through ISS.

This new plan worked fine until a cop spotted the car.
Upson is still safe at home but three of the actives have

A COTC official admitted to a Ubyssey editor that his

He expressed considerable bewilderment as to why the
glittering inducements currently being offered have not
brought flocks of students to the fold.
To us, the wonder of it is that it has had any results

strengthening of world peace and;
Is membership in a military orgnttfoztion which demands immediate and Unquestioning obedience of the
- "interiof" to his superiors compatible with university
education which demands a completely open mind directed only toward the search for truth? ,
Both of these are highly debatable questions to which
no off-hand answers can be given.
If the COTC is to succeed in its recruiting drive it must
provide well-reasoned answers.
Scare campaigns highlighting thc possibility of war and
urging the student to get a commission while the getting s goes
so that he won't get caught with his pipe down in a slit trench
will not lure many students.
Campaigns offering high wages, little work and much
glory are even worse.
It's hightime the COTC changed its tune.

IT IS high time Jack Linott looked up a dictionary to see
what the verb "to co-ordinate" really means. Up to the
present his handling of the job has been more in the line of

Under present procedure anyone can hold a meeting
at any time provided he is lucky enough to find Lintott in
his office.

in Brock Hall. The organizers were very pleased to learn
that WUS were authorized to hold a dance the same night

In the past Lintott has at least managed to keep conflicting programs from taking place in the same roorn. However,
we think a coordinator should (be able to do more than that.

Out Reader Write...
Editor, Tha Ubyasey
Perhaps your readers wil re-
nteihber an appeal made through
your editorial pages last term—
the appeal for support from
campus clubs for the Labor
Committee's proposed by-law to
outlaw racial discrimination.
Perhaps, in this new yea*r it
might bo wise to remnd ourselves that the light for justice for all humanity can, and
must be started on the local
level. The Anti-Discrimination
by-law Is now before City Council, i:*nd now is the time for us
at the university to «how that
wo appreciate the value of our
freedoms (limited as they am),*
and that what we wish for ourselves we wish for till.
The question has been given
an added urgency from the fact
that when the by-law appeared
to have no strenuous opposition
from the council, the Vancouver Boa>rd of Trade suddenly
asked to examine it, which it
is now doing. Inasmuch as It
Is possible, not necesarily probable, that the Board will oppose this progressive, necessary
step, I would urge any ci.*mpus
organizations or Individuals
who realise the importance of
the move to write letters in
support of the by-law to;
Special Committee on Anti
Discrimination By-Law,
c/o The City    Clerk,
City H«U„

If anyone, or any group would
be interested in knowing more

French Dinner
Scores Success
Le  Gall,  Binning  Speakers
At International  House  Event
Good food, good wine and good talk highlighted the International House French dinner at Acadia camp Sunday evening.
Guest speakers were B. C. Bln-f
ning, well-known British Columbia |
artist,   and   Louis   LeGall   of
French department.
LeGall, whose topic was "France
of Yesterday and Today", attempted to describe France In terms
other than those seen on picture
post-cards—the Arc de trlomphe,
the Eiffel tower and so forth.
To explain the current feeling
of "disillusionment" with which
most people assock-te with mod
ern France, LeGall went ba*ck to
the 19th century, to the Golden
Age of France, when belief ln the
power of wealth and material pro-
gres was held by almost all Frenchmen.
Two world wars destroyed this
security, LeGall »ald, and this
resulted In the cautious attitude of
French people today when they regard the future.
However, even among the bearded "existentialists," LeGall still
finds a feeling of "esperance"—
the little girl hope.
The purpose of Mr. Binning's
talk was to define "The French
Style ln Painting" or, as he said,
"Tho Way  the French  paint."
His talk was Illustrated by slides
of the French landscape which he
took on his visit to France this
summer, and by slides of French
paintings by such artists as Pous-
sin, Cezanne, Braque and Matisse.
Binning regards the salient characteristics of French painting to be
a love of the French countryside,
a feeling for religion, and above
;!1 emphasizes on qualities of order
proportion   and   balance.

When the UBC Thunderbirds hockey team lines up
against the PNE Indians of the Commercial Hockey League
tomorrow night at the Forum, it will be the most crucial
game of the season for the college pucksters.
A win for the Birds will put them once more in sole possession
of first place In league standings. We won't at the momont consider
the possibilities of a loss. With only two more games remaining In the
league schedule Birds must win or relinquish any chance of finishing
at the top of the league.
Last Wednesday night's encounter between these two teams
proved to be on of the best games played In anv league ln town this
season. Birds came out on the short end of th« score but their loss
just serves to give them a Uttle more Incentive to win tomorrow night.
A slight let-up ln defensive tactics proved to be their undoing.
The PNE team graibbed the opportunity and went ahead to win. Since
then, Coseh »«W«g" Wagner has been drilling the boys in the mistakes made last game and he has asstr.-ed us that UBC will be an
Improved team come tomorrow night's session.
It has ibeen reliably reported that PNlS's coach Chuck Mlllman
will once more don the blades and in his own little way help his team
toward the Coy Cup Championship.
Chuck Is no stranger to hockeyfans around our fair town, He
played for the Vancouver Canucks for a couple of decades on defence, and If he can still skate the length of the Ice in the allotted
twenty mlniite period, then he will probably take over where he left
oft when he retired from the hockey wars
However even If he plays on Wednesday It will take more than
his probable Inspiration to stop the rampaging Thunderbirds. When
it comes to do-or-dle attempts to win hockey gameB, our own Thunderbirds are past masters at the art.
If It is possible to slip in a couple of excuses for last week's loss
li might be well to say that two top defencemen, Jim McMahon and
Sandy Sanderson were not playing. But totno row night the Birds will
be at full strength.
Last Thursday night the Thunderbirai-Journeyed to New Westminster and played an exhibition game with the New Westminster
Royals Juniors. Although the final score war* to be expected It proved
to be « fine workout for both teams.
This junior team Is a fine young hustliui? bunch of hockey players.'
They skated hard, worked both ways up unl down the ice, and never
stopped trying to win. Most of them are under nineteen years of age
and in a tow years you will be hearing from them.
^Thls coming Friday, the Thunderblrdy will play an exhibition
game with the Kerrisdale Monarchs Senior hockey team at Kerrisdale Arena. To all you fans who feel that si'-h a game will be rather
one-sided you are all Invited to see tills encounter and ji'dge for
Birds will use one forward line from the PNE Indians to provide
more strength to meet the Monarchs and with the hustle and spirit displayed iby tiie Thunderbirds the game will bo a memorable one to see.
Kerrisdale have used three Bird playen to strengthen their team
throughout this season and both Haas Young ard Gunner Bailey have
figured in the scoring.
Coach Scotty Milne of the Monarchs feals that this game will provide some good practice for both teams, but the Birds are out to win.
Don't be at all surprised if they do.
With the addition of the three PNE players, the Thunderbirds
should provide the Monarchs with plenty of stiff competition. Ernie
Dougherty, one of the PNE boys has played with both Kerrisdale Monarchs and the Vancouver Canucks. Another ot the loaned players, Bud
Dumont, played part of this season with Penticton of the Mainline-
Okanagan League and along with starry Gordie Langton, these olayers
will add scoring punch to the Thunderbirds.
Game time for the Thunderbirds-PtfR same tomorrow night is
7.45 and on Friday against the Kerrisdale Mo'iarchs the game will
get underway at 8:00 p.m. If you like hockey v*ome out and support
your Thunderbird hockey team.
There will be a track practice
Tuesday at 3:30 In the Fieldhouse
for all those Interested in the 440

It Really
Did Happen!
No, this didn't happen Friday
night but on January 11, 1946.
That year before 2,000 s'creu-ming
fans, just half of last Saturday's
crowd, a feliow named Pat McGeer led the Thunderbirds to an
early lead which they managed to
hold despite a last quarter onslaught  by  Harlem.
The Bird's cause was helped
immensely by such players as
Sandy Robertson, Ritchie Nicol,
Reg Clarkson, Harry Kermode
Ron Weber and last, but nol least
Ole Baaken. Most of these boys
have been prominent In basketball
circles on the Pacific coast since
then, and are all known to local
hoop enthusiasts.
On this gala occasion, the
Thunderbirds, used a good zone
defence to hold the Trotters at
bay, and if it hadn't been for Duke
Cumberland (you saw him on both
Friday and Saturday night) the
score could quite possibly have
been much greater.
These Birds of 5 years ago had
occasion to use stalling tactics
which must have been very similar to those employed hy Eilers on
Saturday night.
Oh yes, even the renowned Harlem Globe Trotters can he beaten,
and by our own Thunderbirds, too.
GREG KABAT—-Remember Him? Of Course you do, don't
you Greg was the finest-footbali coach ever to come to
UBC. He came to the campus after success at Vancouver
College, and is now coaching in California.
Trotters Trim
Kansas 'Stars
Harlem Globetrotters and Co., with the help of assorted
local Hoopsters, turned the UBC Menu rial Gym into a
Basketball Wonderland over the v/eek end.
Was A Real Show
The Trotters leave Vancouver with the scarps of three
basketball clubs hanging from
their collective belts. On Friday night they defeated EMerrs
by a 55-37 score. On Saturday
afternoon they met UBC and
came away with a 62-37 win.
Saturday night they squeezed
past the agile Kansas City AH
Stars by a 41-36 margin.
On Friday night, the Trotters
put on a gala showing before
3500 enthusiastic hoop fans. Eilers proved to be the greatest
surprise of the evening as they
paced Harlem throughout the
first half. Duk6 Cumberland,
Trotter star even argued about
the last point scored ln the
half, as Eilers led by a 30-28
margin at half time.
In the third quarter, however, the Trotters came roaring
back to build up a safe advantage. In the fourth quarter, th©
Eilers eased up on checking In
order to let the visitors showboat through the last stanza.
Of course the "clowns of Basketball" provided the crowd
with tho out-of-thls-world type
of  play   which  Is   their   world
famops trade mark.
The State Theatre is not the
only place In Vancouver where
vaudeville reigns supreme. The
Globe Trotter management
(these hoys have really hit the
big-time, what) brought along a
terrific table-tennis duo, and a
real live juggler.
The "Crazy Ping Pong'' Act
really wowed the fans. At one
time In the performance, both;
boys were about '!'> feet hack;
from the table, beating the tiny |
sphere for all they were worth.j
At another point, they were
running around the table at a
fair clip, meanwhile continuing
the game. Have you ever played a game of "PP" without
moving your paddle? No? Well
that's exactly what these wizards did on Friday night. "The
London Clip Shot" was holding
his bat stationary (waving to
the crowd meanwhile) while
the partner placed* his shots so
that the ball would return In
the usual manner. Of course,
there was the lltle matter of
playing ping pong with four
balls, a neat trick if you can
manage it.
Jocko Quite A Show
Jocko, the Juggler, was the
other mid-time attraction. Jocko
was a hoop artist, not exactly
the basketball type, but he could
really manipulate those phenomenal hoops. After be had finished the usual kid-stuff like
toslng 5 or 6 king size circles
In the air meanwhile letting
every fifth one bounce on the
floor as one circled around his
leg, he really got down to business. One of the best tricks was
billed "the educated hoop". H<?
lightly tossed a circle into the
air, the hoop promptly took a
nose dive onto an outstretched
rope. The maestro promptly
lowered the rope, and the Hoop
rolled   back   Into   his  arms.
In the first game on Fridav
night, the superior Kansas City
staj*s defeated a hard fighting
UBC quintet. The Stars had
simply out grown the iinfortu-
iia*te Birds, thus they weve able
to secure most of the rebounds
under both baskets. Boyd Bale,
the one-armed wonder, was the
highest scorer for Kansas, his
phenomenal long shots being *..*
joy to behold. Mj.st people would
think it impossible for a man
with one arm lo score,on a fast
lay-out shot. Boyd simply charg
es in, palms the ball to shoulder level, reverses the position
of his hand, and pushes the ball
towards the backboards ln the
customary manner.
