UBC Grant

Part of Lumber King's Million
Marked   For   Bursaries,   Research
UBC will almost certainly benefit from the million-dollar
grant for educational, cultural, and charitable purposes donated September 21 by B.C. lumber magnate Leon J. Koerner,
President N. A. M. MacKenzie said today.

Campus May Go Italian
A one-man crusade • has begun "to put Italian on this
campus", which will include
extra-curricular lectures, tape
recordings of medieval Italian
music, and movies and slides
depicting Italian art centres
and works.
Mr. Ralph W. Baldner, who
for several years has endeavored to promote Italian studies
on this campus, will begin his
program for 1955 on Monday,
with noon-hour lectures following every Monday and
Wednesday throughout October. The series, sponsored by
the Fine Arts Committee, will
cover Dante's "Divine Comedy"
with Baldner explaining the
content and summarizing the
thought of the Middle ages.
In his own free time, Baldner has arranged an experimental course, open to all students with 200 courses in either Latin, French, or Spanish.
The objective is to apply
these languages to the reading
of Italian, and he feels confident that at the end of the
year, students will be able to
go on to higher Italian literature easily, having mastered
the fundamentals of reading
and pronouneiation. This unprecedented study begins October 4, with classes Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday at 8:30
in Arts 103.
As H supplement to his lectures given every Wednesday
night   at   the   Vancouver   Art
Gallery, Baldner will hold sessions in Physics 200 every Friday afternoon beginning October 14. These will include
slides and films of Italian art,
tape recordings of Italian mediaeval music, and lectures of
explanation of Italian literature.

Are Usually Found Together
David learned to drink during his National Service in the
British Army—because, he found, it was "the thing".
President Eisenhower's sudden illness ipay turn out to be
one of the most fortunate maladies in US history.
Until his sudden collapse, he seemed certain to be the
Republican presidential candidate in 1956. His personal popularity with the independent American voter would almost have
assured a Republican victory.
It would not have been a good thing for the United States.
Eisenhower has not been a good president. His administration with its "businessman's" outlook has systematically
reversed the advances made by the Democrats in the fields of
Education, Public Health and Social Security. Low-rent housing has been all but ignored and such worthwhile federal projects as TVA and Rural Electrification have been subjected to
steady, systematic attack.
His naive refusal to take control of Congress was the
signal for a free for all- State Department and government
agencies like the Voice of America and the Foreign Information
Service have still not recovered from the hysterical trumpetings
ei Senator McCarthy.
Disillusioned by this spectacle, Eisenhower has wanted to
quit. He hinted that he does not want another term, but the
GOP's leaders, seeing in him their only chance of salvation,
would not listen. His strong sense of party loyalty was prevailed upon. He was hooked.
If he were elected for a second term it seems unlikely that
he would maintain the same Olympian indifference to the
activities of Congress and the government agencies. The man
who met Bulganin at Geneva is far more politically mature
than the one who deneutralized Chiang.
But once in office, his hold on his own party would be
gone. Eisenhower is the first to be affected by the ruling limiting a US President to no more than two consecutive terms.
His grin might still be famous but his usefulness to the
GOP would be ended. It is hard to imagine Nixon or Know-
land paying much attention to his pious hopes or idealistic
The reactionary blend of isolation and big business, that
comprises the GOP right wing would have almost complete
freedom of action for at least two years.
No one wishes Mr. Eisenhower any personal misfortune,
but without him, the Republicans will have to get elected on
their own merits.
They will find it hard.
When he returned to civilian life he secured a well-paid
job. He was a good boy. He
paid his mother well and still
had money each week to
spend. Extensive and expensive advertising by the brew*
ers provided him with plenty
of suggestions as to how to
use lt. They convinced him
that his newly-acquired habit
was a good one.
The radio helped. A recent
survey showed that of 1,139
broadcast references to drink
only two could be called "pro-
temperance". Typical of the
"jokes" heard over the air
was: "We had a staggered
holiday — my old man was
staggering all the time". So
getting drunk was also "the
thing"—rather funny In fact.
Going home drunk one
night David leered at a girl.
An elderly man rebuked him.
David struck the man so that
he fell. Drunk men are usually objectionable. Often they
strike people, thougn it ls us*
ually members of their family, in the privacy of their
own homes. That is why so
few people know of it.
Ed's  Note—and  this  is   only

When David sobered up he
learned that the man he
struck had cracked his skull

If a youth serving his term
in the military ranks never
called for liquor before, apparently he soon learns to do
so, for the supply of alcoholic
liquor still holds high priority
in what the armed services
call "welfare". "Roll out the

Ilshe'd more of those outrageous fillers. Informing the
UBC student body of the number of muscles in an elephant's
nose is not only a waste of
valuable space in an influential
medium, but it is definitely
lewd in its phallic symbolism.
Professor Savery might call it
"cognitively unmeaningful."
May I suggest that you either
fill these spaces (the result of
your editors' Incompetence)
with some worthwhile copy,
or retire from the paper en
masse, leaving it to better
hands. I suggest that you use
literary quotations perhaps
from Thoreau, or Emerson, or
Bacon, to fill these holes. Inspiring words such as these
might help to counterbalance
the mounds of trash found elsewhere in your rag. May I also
say that the Ubyssey is a wonderful excuse for censorship.
I remain your conscience.

Within the last few years I
have listened to, and heard
of, many university students
who were planning a European tour. The number has
become so large that it is time
■we asked ourselves, why this
increased interest in Europe?
As it is almost
to divorce United
Canadian cultures,
the purpose of this
treat them as one,
specific deviations
ply to Canada and
United States.
States and
let us, for
except for
which ap-
not to the
' It is obvious that we are not
going to Europe to see for the
first time a Frenchman or a
German or a national of any
other European country; we
have representatives of every
European country right here
in our congl6merate culture.
Is our reason then to learri a
language other than English,
to see world-renowned paintings, to see examples of Renaissance architecture or to
stand on the sites of the
bloody battles of this century
or preceding ones?
My answer is that some of
us will go for any or all of
the reasons I have mentioned,
but I assert that the majority
will go for another, and to a
student of sociology, a more
important and alarming reason, namely, to get away from
this zany, bustling and conformist culture of ours   .   .   .
The apparent hypocrisy of
our society is becoming tiresome; hypocrisy such as our
reference to our kinship system as monagamous. Surely
we cannot interpret the increasing incidence of divorce
as anything other than a
subtle encroachment of polygamy into our culture. Our
professed moral attitude towards  sex  and  sexual  inter
course has become so warped
that our mental institutions
are becoming more crowded
with people who were unable
to reconcile their conception
of right and wrong with that
of their society, which has set
down a list of taboos and has
glibly proceeded to ignore
them. Either the system of
morals we profess is the system of morals we want to uphold, or it is too idealized and
needs complete overhauling to
bring it within the realm of
possibility. Living in this fool's
paradise of immaturity ls idiotic.
Is it not significant that at
the University of Oslo in Norway students of both sexes live
in the same building, yet such
a suggestion at UBC would
cause a crisis? It is because of
the fact that some European
countries have accepted a
change in morality in keeping
with their cultures, their thinking   and   their   environments,
and to observe them, that some
of us want to go to Europe.
From discussions with European students, some of us have
been made aware that our standards of education compare unfavorably with those of most
European countries. Here, and
I include UBC as well as other
North American universities,
the standards are lowered to
ensure that a large number of
students will pass the final examinations and rush headlong
into the waiting arms of a business world still so much in its
infancy that it can assimilate
the vast majority of university
graduates each year. Standards
which should be rising to meet
the necessities of an increasingly techrtological economy
are remaining static, and are
paving the way for a university degree to become a requisite for a lowly $200 a
month pencil-pusher's job at a
local department store.
However, the standard of
education at the university
level is only a further mani
festation of a low high-school
standard. So many well-ad*
justed morOns'''are riding the
conveyor belt ihto the universities, that, if standards are not
raised, we shall be guilty parties to the turning out of well-
adjusted pseudo-educated robots from our universities with
sickening rapidity.
In Europe, greater densities
of population and fewer uni*
versities combine to maintain
standards that ensure only the
most intelligent people receive
a university education. Now
many people will grab a Davy
Crockett coon-skin cap and a
Bill of Rights and assert that
it is undemocratic to deny the
majority of people, and the majority are not the most intelli*
gent, a university education.
I would ask these people to
take a few .years to consider

Commence October 2
The first Catholic' Student's Mission ever to be held at
UBC will open Sunday, October 2, with Holy Mass at 9:00
a.m. in the Newman Clubhouse, hut L5.
Conducted by Reverend
Father E. B. Allen of the Congregation of Saint Basil, the
mission exercises will continue
through to Friday, October 7.
Mass will be celebrated at
7:20 a.m. Monday to Friday
and again at 12:30 on Friday
in Hut L5.
The Catholic University student will be subjected to close
examination in a series of four
conferences. Father Aliens'
topics are: Monday, "God and
You"; Tuesday, "Faith and
Sanity"; Wednesday, "What is
a Catholic" and Thursday
"What is a Catholic Student?"
The conferences are scheduled for 12:30 in Phyiscs 200,
with the exception of Wednesday's meeting which will be
held in Physics 202.
Father Allen was formerly a
member of the Philosophy department at St. Michael's College, University of Toronto. He
is now lecturing in philosophy
at UBC.

Corpuscle   Count
The battle of the Blood is on! The Faculty of Medicine
has challenged students in the School of Medicine to a "Corpuscle Collecting" contest.	
The Blood Drive starts next
week in the Armory. All the
blood used in B.C. during that
week will be from the full-
flowing arteries of UBC students. The quota is 2000 pints.
With 6313 potential donors
wandering around this campus,
it is expected that the quota
will be well exceeded.
The time to roll up your
sleeve and find out if that's
blood or water that you've
been thriving on, is 9:30 to
4:30 any day from October 3
to 7 inclusive.
A new addition to the Drive
this year is a Kissing Booth

the School of Education to accept, "that is, if you, think
you can!"
