This is only one of the results
of a survey taken recently by
a Student Committee among students in Fort and Acadia camps.
Of 1160 forms distributed, 730
were answered, a return of 63
percent. The replies, said the
committee, were considered, constructive and reasonable.
Questions were asked on the
bass that the "Harvard Scheme"
would be finally adopted in the
project. This scheme calls for
a large central building for eating and recreational facilities
linked by covered walks on
either side to four housing units.
The units would accomodate
approximately 100 students each.
With regard to the proposed
Main Hall the majority of the
students were in favor of having
a common lounge, suitable for
dancing, supplemented by small-"
er vestibule lounges in the dormitories.
Constant criticism running
through the replies concerned
the present system of cafeteria
style eating. A well planned layout for traffic flow and lineups
was urged to prevent present
bottlenecks near steam tables
and doors.
Main complaints concerning
the actual food were that there
was no choice of food and that
the food was left on the steam
tables too long. A conveyor belt
was suggested to carry dirty
dishes away from the dining

Liberal vs. Liberal
There will be a meeting of
the Ubyssey editorial board,
today at noon.
Former campus Liberal president Ron Basford Wednesday criticized Liberal M.P.
Tom Goode's "fire Oakalla
Warden Hugh Christie" statement.
Resolution criticizing Goode
may be presented to the B.C.
Young Liberal convention at
Pine Woods Lodge, Hope-
Princeton highway, Friday
and Saturday.
Basford pointed out that "it
is not Christie's job" to guard
such desperadoes as bank
bandit John Wasylenchuk and
hold-up man Robert Lewis.
Said he: "They should be
placed in a maximum security
prison—like the B.C. penitentiary—while awaiting appeal.
Warden Christie should be retained."
Basford, one of five campus
Liberals attending the two-
day meet, also expressed confidence that B.C. leader Art
Laing would not be censured
by the convention. He called
the chance of a non-confidence
vote "extremely slim '.
Chief critic of Laing is former Young Liberal president
James Proudfoot  but "he lias
not got the confidence of the
Young Liberal movement" according to Basford.
Liberal club will present a
resolution to "liberalize" divorces and commend Alberta
Liberal chief Harper Prowse
for his "fine showing" in the
recent provincial election.
Prowse and Laing will bolh

A Challenge
The gauntlet has been thrown down.
A University of Toronto student last Week claimed the
university beer-drinking championship of Canada by consuming 68 glasses of amber brew at a sitting.
Now this disturbs us; we don't think the East should
carry off the title by default—especially when UBC's prestige
is at stake.
Despite the 68-glass record, which is admittedly impressive,
we're still firm in our conviciton that UBC is the suds capital
of. the academic world.
We're confident that somewhere on this campus—in the
Engineering building, in one of the Fort Camp huts, in some
fraternity house—there are at least several UBC students that
can better the Toronto record.
We hold no doubts that some campus organization will
step forward and sponsor a contest that will place the crown
where it rightfully belongs—right here at UBC.
Tuum Est and all that.
Tonight at the Student's Council meeting the Arts and
Soience faculty will be raised to full status in the student
government of this university. The official acceptance of the
Arts and Science Undergraduate Society will climax week's
of struggle by a group of determined arts and science students.
This struggle began with a collection of separate ideas
which first found expression at a small meeting of six Arts-
men. Their proposals found support at the first general meeting
of the ASUS two weeks ago, when they were formally and
unanimously adopted.
They gained strength as the Artsmen sought and obtained,
acceptance from the Undergraduate Societies Committee.
With the expected approval of council tonight the stage
will really be set for these determined people to show what
they can do.
It is their aim now to raise the status of the arts in the
university, to assist and co-ordinate the activities of arts and
science clubs, to represent the arts and science students before
the faculty, to honour deserving arts and science men and to
investigate the possibility of a better student government.
To accomplish these aims they will need all the student
support they can get. The ASUS was a strong body in the
days of the ex-servicemen. There is no reason why we cannot
show the same maturity now.
Tomorrow in FG 100 at noon, arts and science students
Will elect the officers of the ASUS.
By turning out in full force, let 2000 arts and sciencemen
show that their strength and their maturity can match that of
the ex-servicemen.

Mr. Stanley Beck,
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We're not cheapskates, but
neither our budget nor our constitution permit of paid advertising. A week ago, our executive decided to make member-
x ships in the- Classic Film Society available to students at $3
instead of the usual $9.90. But
how were we to let those lucky
students know of their good
fortune?   The answer is obvi
ous, write a letter to the Editor.
Because, of course, all bright
students at .UB.C. read The
Ubyssey, and bright students
know a good thing when they
see it!
Seriously, though, here is all
the pertinent information in a

Students Should Learn
To Write for Mass-Media
Where, and this is a plea as much as a question, are the
essay writers on this campus?
Creative writing, contrary to what apparently is the opinion of a great many people here, does not stop at short story
writing and poetic compositions. Sometimes I wonder if it
even starts there. A really good short story can be one of
the hardest things in the world to write; a really good poem
can be even more difficult.
An yet, student writers still
persist in hammering out what
they hope will be the near-
unreachable, a good story or
poem. That in itself is no crime,
but in their headlong rush to
nowhere writers, tend to overlook a very important aspect
of creative writing, that of essaying.
For every essay handed into
the Publications Board, to Raven and the Ubyssey, there
are four short stories and a
fistful of poems to match it, few
of which are of any marked
quality. The essays that are
handed in, furthermore, are
often more accurately classifiable as letters to the editor
than anything else. Essayistic
thinking seems to be an unpractised art on this campus.
Students have the mistaken
impression that writing a good
essay is difficult. It need not be
if the writer were to write on
something he knows about, and
was not Jifraid to say what he
meant rather than what he
thought olhers expected him
to say. It need not be if students were given the proper
Writing is still one of the
most important means of dis-
semminating ideas, and preserving them, and a university
still should be one of the main
places to learn the how of this
dissemination and preservation.
Essay writing should be encouraged. Students, occasionally, should be encouraged to
write in a form that will be
acceptable to and understandable by people in varied fields
of interest. Some students of
each department in this university should have some training in how to communicate
their ideas to people in other
departments. Specialists must
specialize, of course, but not
all the time. They should disseminate and preserve their
ideas or at least know how.
Now here is a suggestion: if
professors would assign each
year, to their writing students,
one essay that was to be written
"for publication." It could well
increase he incentive to write
and to learn to write. If these
assignments were written with
the view in mind that they will
be submited to Raven and The
Ubyssey, students would receive
a type of training that is much
needed—the training to communicate through mass media.
(For that matter, Radsoc could
for a change get off the canned
music it drums into the Brock
every day and provide another
training ground) — Anything
would be better than some of
that always-too-loud hubbub
dished out dally. Why does not
Radsoc train students for the
CBC radio rather than the commercial noise-makers?
If this type of assignment
were given it would mean, of
course, that some professors
would not be able to stay up in
the clouds so much, and others
would have to get off the
ground occasionally—and likewise the students, if not more
so—and I think that would be
a good thing.
To be more specific, the
English Department should tell
its students to write a book review or a literary criticism or
what have you, and submit it
to the Publications Board, and
the History Department, and all
the others in Arts and Science,
Sociology, Anthropology, and
Geology should do the same.
Law students should get off
their little pedestals, social
workers and teachers should
start writing as well as reading, and so on.
Now, of course, hundreds of
people will raise up their danders and claim that The Ubyssey
is of a "too low standard" to
write for, and Raven is, I do
not know, something else. Usually these people are very subjective and relative. And, by
saying The Ubyssey is of a
"low standard" those who say
it Automatically imply they
themselves are of a "higher
standard," which can be so
much nonsense.
Furthermore, if they think
the slandnrds are too low, why
in hell do they not help raise
them themselves?
No, it is no use raising a
dander over standards. That is
a poor excuse. The use of mass |
media is of tremendous importance in our world, and students should have training in
that as well as in throwing
rotten fruit at political philosophers.
There should be more constructive use made of campus
mass media.

The production of "Liliom"
represents a milestone in the
history of campus theatre for it
provides a link between two
UBC groups long in fierce competition—the Players Club and

Described as a "curious compound of realism and fantasy,"
the p\ay centres around a young,

stray servant girls who fall victim to his charms is the young,

The play, written by the Hungarian playwright in 1912, is
one of universal appeal with its

USC Approves  New
Arts   Constitution
Undergraduate  Societies  Committee  yesterday  approved
the revised constitution for a new Arts Undergraduatte Society,
Formation of the ASUS now*—         —	
depends upon approval of the
J constitution by Student Council
tonight. It is expected to provoke controversy as some Council members, feel that an Arts
Society is unfeasible in terms
of both organization and necessity.
USC chairman Dave Hemphill
feels confident that Council will
approve formation of ASUS.
"I think they have made a
big step toward formation of a
co-ordinating body of the Arts
students on the campus," he said.
Originators of the new ASUS
movement, Alade Akesode, Gerry Hodge and Tom Wilson, feel
that the 2000 Arts and Science
students on the campus should
have representation in USC.

Of  Stricken  Students
Responding to urgent appeals for assistance, World Uni*'
versity Service of Canada has sent donations totalling $500.00
to university students in Japan, Pakistan and India.
UBC  News
Filmsoc proudly announces
the world premiere of their own
newsreel, in the auditorium today at 3.30.
This two and one-half minute
feature deals with all the highlights of homecoming. Starting
•t the football game, the news-
reel shows flashes of the cheerleaders, winning floats and the
queen contestants..
It continues on to the basketball game and then to the dance
where the Homecoming queen
and her princesses are featured.
In the future, Filmsoc will make
newsreels of all the important
events on campus.
At a meeting of the Administrative Committee in Toronto,
the decision was made to send
$300.00 to Japanese students in
Niigata where a typhoon and a
disastrous fire have left hundreds of students homeless.
The rest of money will be
sent to students in Pakistan and
India, where extensive floods
have left many homeless and
The Canadian committee will
forward the money—donated by
Canadian university students
and professors—through the international offices in Geneva.
Niigata is one of the places
visited by a group of 21 Canadian students who participated
in a WUS^sponsored summer seminar in Japan last summer.
UNTD invites everyone to"

Key To  English  200  Pass
If you are wandering
through the Auditorium this
afternoon around 3:30 or even
tonight around six or eight
fifteen, and hear wierd and
wonderful music accompanying famous voices, speaking
well-known lines, don't be
alarmed. It will just be UBC's
Film Society's presentation of
Laurence Olivier's (and of
course Mr. Shakespeare's)
And if you happen to be an
English student it might even
be a good idea if you coughed
up your 35 cents and went in
and saw the film. After all, it
isn't every day you get the
chance to see part of a University course come alive.
Hamlet (Oliver's version) is
a spectacular in the extreme,
filmed on the grandest scale,
and stars Olivier himself as
the Prince of Denmark, Eileen
Herlie as the Queen, Jean
Simmons as Ophelia and Ter-
enee Morgan as Laertes.
These and many othc r s
(watch for Stanley Holloway
as the Grave-diKRer) put in
more than competent performances.  Olivier's sincerity as
"the man who could not make
up his mind" is complimented
by the combined motherliness
and passion of Eileen Herlie's
Gertrude while Jean Simmons
makes Ophelia not only a fi*
gure of tragic madness but of
deep pathos.
Shakespeare's Hamlet is one
of leisurely suspense. Olivier's
is one of urgent dramatic triumph. By reducing the play's
length' to a mere two and a
half hours the action has been
immeasureably and superbly
speeded up.
Amid the praise for the
costumes, sombrely magnificent, the decor, Elsimor castle
complete with 18th century
murals and frescoes painted in
sepia on the walls and corridors, William Walton's wonderful musical background
and the genius displayed by
the actual film making allow
me to interject two small carping notes of criticism.
Shakespeare's Hamlet is revealed through many speeches
as a conscience-racked pro-
crastinator. Olivier's Hamlet
subdues this particular aspect
of the Prince's character in
that   some   500   to   600  lines
have been cut from the play.
Whether this is a fault or a
virtue of the film depends upon the spectator's own views
but personally I don't like it.
Carping criticism number
two is simply this. Hamlet,
again in Shakespeare's version
while suspecting his mother
of being an accomplice in the
murder of his father is shown
in the bedroom scene that she
is innocent. Olivier's version
does not make this clear.
It is a pageant of brilliant
splendor and fast moving action, an enchantment of quality acting, a superb tragedy, a
suspense revenge film in the
finest sense.
B. C. Land Of
Ice and Men
American grasshockey players who visited the UBC campus last weekend left with two lasting impressions; first,, that
British Columbia has the coldest climate in North America,
and second that UBC has an amazing preponderance of eligible young men. f

T- V Act
It seems that five years ago,
the last time a grasshockey conference was held here, delegates
were welcomed by a freak November snowstorm. When UBC's
turn to play host* came again
this year, American teams were
not pleased with the prospect
of spending another weekend
freezing in Canada's Evergreen
Local officials managed to
convince them, however, that the
snowstorm... they ran into pre-
viosly was indeed a freak, and
that weather here had been particularly good lately.'
So, when delegates from the
16 American colleges arrived
Saturday morning, they found
temperatures of eight degrees
above zero, an all-time low for
The second impression carried
away by the American co-eds
was the result of the Grasshockey team's call for 300 stags
to attend Saturday night's dance.
UBC males turned out by the
hundreds until the girls were out-
numebered by nearly four to
one. They thoroughly enjoyed
the evening, and, as one girl put
It, "We'd be willing to put up
with the climate, if we could
always be this popular."

Braves Top Brits
As Varsity Loses
Despite the bitter cold and frozen turf, all rugger games
went on as usual with weekend results showing Braves almost
home free in Bell-Irving Cup competition while the Chiefs
slipped still further down in Miller Cup play.
Braves waited  until late  in<S	
the second half in their game
Friday against Ex-Brits before
amassing IS quick points to sink
the Brits 21-3.
'Down at Brockton Oval," Kats
kicked one penalty goal to defeat the Chiefs 3-0. The campus
team had an advantage territor-
illy but iust. could not score.
A powerful Barbarian XV
broke the Tomahawks two-game
winning stroak by defeating
them, 12-6 at Balaclava Park.
Redskins also failed in their
attempt to duplicate last week's
winning effort, losing to Meralomas 8-3.
Braves led 3-0 at half time on
a penalty kick by Hugh Barker,
but Brits tied the score soon
after' the break. Late in the
game, however, Britannia was
forced to play a man short and
Braves forwards rolled through
for three quick tries, all of which
wore converted by Barker.
Scores were by Frank Harvey-
Smith with two, and Dave
Asked to comment on the
Chiefs' game against Kats at
Brockton, Albert Laithwaite
said that he was "speechless,"
at least as far as the press was
concerned. Actually, though, he
did not appear too concerned
over the Chiefs mediocre showing so far this year. Coach Laithwaite feels his team is "coming
along" and is confident that
when the big games come up,
they will be ready.
In the Tomahawk-Barbarian
contest, Bob Warren and Ray
Forrester completed the scoring
for UBC, tallying one unconverted try each. Bill Cousins
kicked one penalty goal for the
'Skins in their tilt with Meralomas.

UBC Thunderbirds settled for a split in their exhibition
basketball twin bill last weekend at the War Memorial Gym.
Jack Pomfret's Birds edged Eilers 64-56 Friday night but lost
before the television cameras 61-41 to Alberni Athletics Frdiay
[Tuesday, November 15, 1055
UBC had a surprisingly tough
time with Eilers and led only
27-28 at the half after overcoming an early eight point Jeweller
lead. In the second half Birds
built up a substantial bulge and
then coasted home for the win.
3ohn McLeod was the whole
show Friday night and the only
Bird to reach double figures in
the scoring column. McLeod hit
for 25 points with Lyall Levy
following him with nine.
Condition and Elmer Speidel
fold the story in the Birds' loss
fo the Canadian champion Athletics, who knocked off Clover
Leafs 75-67 on Friday.
The Thunderbirds battled Alberni to a 24-24 draw at the
naif in a tight defensive game
that saw the lead change hands
a number of times in the first
twenty minutes, although UBC
did hold a seven-point advantage
at one time.
But the complexion of the
contest changed in the second
frame, as the Athletics romped
over the tired Birds. UBC was
j playing only their third game
of the season and second in two
days, while Alberni had ten
I games under their belts.
Birds shooting and rebound-
ling after the break failed to
Icbme up to their first half performance, and was blamed on
llack of condition.
Elmer Speidel was the difference between the clubs, as the
athletics' playing coach, who
failed to score in the first period
finished the evening with 20
joints, the margin of victory at
the final bell.
Following Speidel were John
]lark and Ron Bissett with 14
)d 10 points respectively for
alberni. The Canadian cham-
>ions were strengthened for the
Saturday game by Clark, Doug
Jrinham, and George Denison,
,ione of whom got to the mainland in time for the Clover Leaf
McLeod as usual led the Bird
Jttack with 13 points, and Levy
fas again second high man for
JBC with eight, fouling out in
ie third quarter.
Thunderbirds get another
rack at the Athletics this week
end in Alberni. UBC feels they
have a good chance of getting
at least a split in the two-game
series, which will serve as a
warm-up for the big Totem
Tournament the following weekend.

Vancouver Eilers avenged
their 65-56 loss to the Thunderbirds on Friday night as they
trimmed the UBC Jayvees 76-60
in a Senior "A" League game
at King Edward Gym last Saturday.
Dave Milne nearly shattered
Eilers hopes of winning when
he potted 21 points in 10 minutes but the Jewellers held on
to their dwindling first half
lead to escape the clutches of
the Pennmen.
Dave Milne was high scorer
with 25 points. Bob Ramsey of
the Eilers and J.V.'s Dave Vernon were tied for second high
scoring honors with 16 points
Ed Pedersen and Jerry Mullin
were sent to the JV's by Thunderbird coach Jack Pomfrett for
further experience and to help
pull the JV's out of their early
season slump.
UBC Braves get another
chance against YMCA in Junior
Men's play tonight at 7:30 in

in a losing cause with the Thunderbirds running out of
gas in the second half Saturday afternoon. A's coach Elmer
Speidel (11) runs in front of McLeod and racked up 20

Due to the weather, all soccer
games were cancelled last weekend, and Bird coach Ed Luckett
has called a practice at 5 p.m.
today in the Field House.
The Varsity coach also came
up with some interesting statistics on his squad which is the
best since the 1951 championship team.
Varsity, besides being undefeated, has not been scored on
in the last 193 minutes of play
and has given up only one goal
in the last 360 minutes.
Chiefs, with a very unimpressive record with three losses
were also idle.

Among the special rooms urged by students were small kitchens in the dorms even if the

also want laundry rooms in each

to continue the present policy

cited the need for "provincial
facilities for advanced training
of artists, to meet the public demands for television," and the
fact that "symphony orchestras
requiring professional instrumentalists are now important
The brief also said "the present situation in this province

must travel thousands of miles
from home to enter institutions
for advanced training."

leave this country to study seldom returns," he said.
