Longstaffe, Committee, Part Ways
Representatives of all organizations entering in the
Homecoming parade will meet
in library 852 at noon today.
Parade marsriall Al Plant
will be on hand to issue important instructions. "It is
absolutely necessary that
everbody attends this meeting," said Al Plant. Positions
and route will also be explained.

These lines from William
Shakespeare's "Macbeth" were
spoken to graduends at UBC's
Autumn Congregation Friday
night by one of two men receiving Honorary Degrees.
Said Sir Douglas Copeland,
Australian High Commissioner
to Canada:** "You go forward
now to face the world, but cannot offer security. It is for
you to make your world."
The Honorary degree of Doctor of Laws Was conferred upon
Sir Douglas and Major General
Victor Odium, former Canadian
High Commissioner to Australia, by President N. A. M. MacKenzie, who pointed out that
the University is growing rapidly at the*rate of 400 students

be required If the University is
to keep pace with the demands
claimed upon it," he said.
Sir Douglas's address emphasized that "a great new world"
is rising out of the old civilization of Asia.
He said the destiny of Canada
and Australia would share in
this development.
Rebuild the

f'Send all contributions-any-

nutshell summarizes the campaign headed by Wendy Sutton,
dedicated to "Raise the Roof."
Making full use of Vancouver
resources Mi9s Sutton's Committee has contacted radio stations from here to Nanaimo, all
Daily and Weekly Newspapers,
and from 18,000 to 20,000 alumni, in an all-out effort to raise
sufficient funds to rebuild
Brock Hall.
Because the main lounge is
to be entirely reconstructed, the
present time is the most opportune to carry through the
long-planned project of excavat-

UBC graduate-honors economics
and political science. She did
post graduate studies at Bryn
Mawr and won two scholarships
upon receiving her MA from
that university.
Mrs. Ross attended the London School of Economics in England and worked on a thesis in
Germany on communist and religious sects which have em-
migrated to Canada.
During the Second World War
she distinguished herself and
was later made Commander of
the Order of the British Empire in  1946.
She was employed as an economic advisor to the Canadian
Tariff and Prices and Trades
Boards. From 1941 to 1945 she
was Administrator of Oils and
Fats   under  the   W.P.T.B.
Mrs. Ross returned for the
East in 1945 and was awarded
an Honorary Doctor of Laws
degree by the Alma Mater in
October of that  year-
Fo rthe past three years she
has been on the University Senate. She is also on the Women's
Residences Committee and is
convenor of the Committee on
Scholarships of the National Federation of  University Women.
She has always been interested in education and culture
and was a director of the Vancouver Symphony Society from
1940 to 1951.
Besides these activities Mrs.
Ross plays an active role in the
Canadian Cancer Society. She
holds several executive offices
in the Cancer Research Institute
and tiie B.C. Division of the
Canadian   Cancer   Society.
From all aspects Mrs. Ross
qualifies for lac honor to be
bestowed upon her. The Great
Trekker award is given each
year to an eminent graduate
in a chosen field who has made
a special contribution to the
community and who, at the
.-.aine time, has retained a close
interest in the Alma Mater.
Upheld   By   Council
But   Resigns   Anyway
Student Council Monday night approved a majority report of the Committee on Discrimination in Fraternities that
labelled all charges against member Ron Longstaffe as "vague
and ambiguous."
At the same time Council President Dick Underhill announced Longstaffe's resignation from the committee.
Longstaffe     had    previously *
threatened to resign but refused
to do so when pressed.
The charges levelled by Investigating Committee members
Frieda Messerschmidt and Dar-
ryl Anderson were embodied in
a minority report presented to
Council subsequently defeated
tjie report.
A petition, presented at the
meeting by Gerard Daechsel,
Arts 4, called on the Council to
"immediately investigate'' charges embodied in the minority
The petition was received by
Council but action was refused
by Underhill on the grounds
that he took full responsibility
for Longstaffe's actions.
The charges, first levelled
against Longstaffe at a Council
meeting two weeks ago, called
for his resignation and asked
Council to censure his "undemocratic and unco-operative" actions on the Committee.
At that time Council referred
it to the Investigating Committee itself, the outcome of which
were the two reports.
The majority report was supported by committee members
Jack Hamilton, Bruce McWilliams and Danny Goldsmith.
Underhill refused to take any
action after the majority report
had been approved because he
considered Longstaffe "had done
a fine piece of work."
He also said be could not "see
that members of a committee
should be interrogated for on
how they have done their duty."
Daechsel's petition, signed by
five students, asked Council to
"prove the charges against Longstaffe one way or another." Miss
Meschersijpidt supported Daechsel's plee on the grounds that
her charges were "serious
enough to warrant investigation."
Coordinator Jerome Angel
disagreed, describing Lonstaffe's
actions as "just a case of doing
a poor job or of being negligent,"

Not Too  Bad
When the European Defense Community died at the
hands of the French National Assembly, the wails of the
West were long and loud. EDC's defeat was generally re-.
gfUH-od aa a genuine tragedy—one which could mean the dis-
integration of Western Europe and the crippling of the
West'* defense.
Now, however, the defeat of EPC—and its substitution
by the Brussels agreement—does not look too bad at all.
Only those who wanted the strongest possible European
defense against the "Red Menace" can have strong regrets. a
But EDC was not prized so highly by Europeans merely
bocause it would help the West—particularly the United
States—fight its battle against Communism.
- More than anything else, EDC meant another step towards European unity, something which has been beginning
to appear to Europeans more than a Utopian dream. The
first step was already taken with the European Coal and
9teel Community. '
Opponents of EDC were not against European unity,
their objections varied from a fear of German rearmament
to a resentment against what appeared to be an American
attempt to muster an advance guard against Russia.
The Brussels agreement circumvented these objections
and seems to be almost a cureall.
It is definitely superior to EDC as a move towards
Btiropeon unity in that it includes the United Kingdom, a
power which has traditionally refrained from continental
commitments in time of peace.
And as French Premier Mendes France has consistently
contended, a genuine Europeon union cannot be obtained
without the participation of Great Britain.
With the UK included in the new agreement, Europe
is much stronger, and much more independent. It can now
act as a badly needed buffer between these two giant powers.
World peace ist much more likely with Europe acting as
a buffer instead of clinging to the coat-tails of Uncle Sam.
Most important of all, the London agreement has opened
the way for a European union far greater than the "Little
Europe" projected by EDC. It might include not only Britain
but Scandinavia and even Yugoslavia and its partners in the
Balkan Alliance, Greece and Turkey, what with the conclusion of the Trieste accord.
We hate to sound like old fogies, but those sure were
the days.
We mean the days when our parents went to school.
Stutz bearcats, racoon coats, football games complete
with packed stands and whiskey-filled flasks, flagpole sitting, college boys making the night hideous with the strumming of their ukuleles, and the nemesis of our finny friends,
the gold-fish swallowers.
Today the average student sits around like an old lady
with a broken wheelchair. He goes to all his lectures, listens
intently to his professors, and like a mule, slowly and quietly
plods after the carrot of security. Anything he swallows is
first carefully chewed exactly twenty-eight times.
Our parents raised pure hell and got away with it.
Students were expected to have a natural propensity towards
commandeering streetcars, stealing statues, and disrupting
the ordered life of the good burghers downtown with monster snake dances and impromptu parades.
If the minions of the law objected, so much the better,
and if his pranks landed a student in jail, he was overjoyed.
What could seem better in retrospect than a social evening'
spent with the inhabitants of the city tank.
Today an afternoon of beering at the Georgia is considered a roaring time, and if anyone were to attempt goldfish
swallowing he would probably be the recipient of an indignant letter from the SPCA.
There hasn't even been a panty raid on the campus for
two years. Sex starved college boys express their frustration
by doodling on toilet walls while dormitary housed females
sleep safe.
We all lead a nice quiet well ordered life.
Bah!  Humbug!
in hell      Football A Nuisance?
I'm confused about tourists.
I've been raised in a city
where the tourist and his dollar are treated With awe,
and welcomed obsequiously
with parking privileges and
generous displays of the stars
and stripes.
I have seen them ease themselves from their colorful, powerful auto with obvious reluctance, and overheard them
speak with a quiet joy of
"makin* S'attle by noohn."
I took them to be rich, successful people in pursuit of
pleasure; people who could
spend their leisure time ln any
way, but who climbed into
their cars and drove because it
offered them the highest joy.
Now I've returned from a
motor trip myself.
And for sheer hardship, ill-
humor, discomfort, unhealthi-
ness, and creeping but certain
rancor between friends, "motoring" can't be surpassed.
Oh, Pioneers
Perhaps the tourists identify
themselves with their pioneering ancestors—which would explain their fondness for cloth-
topped autos.
Certainly the rigors of the
Oregon Trail were no worse
than are those of U.S. Highway
No. 2. At 60 miles per hour,
our trail was just as rough, the
air just as cold in our unheated
'38 Pontiac. A hurried meal before a campfire was no less
tasty or nutritional than the
offerings of Ma's Diner.
Encounters with Indians
could have been no worse than
those with preying garage
mechanics and their carefully
neglected ally, the restroom.
And as far as danger is concerned, Kit Carson would
never have lasted through
Crow's Nest Pass.
At least the pioneers managed to remain close-knit, loyal
groups, what with their camp-
fire sing-song.
No sing-songs held us together. Not with someone trying to sleep in the rear seat.
.Our trip started off with all
five of us gazing frequently at
each other in admiration of the
other's comraderie.
It ended with each of us
afraid to look at the other. We
sensed that such terrible hate-
red should be hidden.
Guiding Hands
It started with the road map.
Everyone thought that since
they weren't driving, the least
they could do was to act as
navigator. But there was -only
one map. One's devotion to the
general cause became somewhat frayed when a grubby
hand reached over and began
to point stupidly, or worse,
greedily to snatch the entire
It became quite torn.
Then the driver was always
reluctant to accept the counsel
being offered to him so infrequently. The first time he waved aside directions, we all
snuggled back contentedly, sure
of his capabilities.
But when we learned a few
hundred miles later that his
scorn had led us a lonely hundred miles off course—where we
were delayed for an hour in the
cold wilderness with a flat tire,
and brought us back on course
without telling anyone of his
error, suspicion began to replace trust.
No Gratitude
The driver was to be hated
on other occasions, too. He
would be detested for his timid
pace, and damned for his utter recklessness.
He would be especially hated
for his self-sacrifice.
He would refuse to give up
the wheel or stop, bravely pushing himself in order that we
might "make time". The rest
of us would sit grim-lipped
about him, while our stomachs
whimpered for food, and our
bladders  bit  back  their tears.
The driver was always hurt
when he learned his sacrifice
was not accorded the admiration he felt for it himself.
Then there was the question
of who was to sit in the front
seat, his knees chafing along
the dashboard, lighting cigar-
et-s for tho driver while headlights stabbed repeatedly into
hi.s vainly-closed eyes.
Competition was keen from
Robert M. Hutchlns, noted
American spokesman for the
anti-progressivist movement in
education, has a certain-to-be
controversial article in a recent
issue of Sports illustrated.
"College football," he says,
"is an infernal nuisance."
Always one to practice what
he preaches, Hutchlns was responsible for pitching intercollegiate football.out of the University of Chicago when he was
president of that institution.
This great educator never
fails to provide the public with
the full philosophical background behind any of his actions. The present case is no
exception, Big-time college athletics, he says, hamper a university's efforts to become the
kind of institution it should aspire to be—"one devoted to
education, research, and scholarship."
Hutchlns does not attack
sports as such, he is all in favor
of it, but makes it clear what
he thinks its place should be:
"We Americans are the only
people in human history who
ever got sport mixed up with
higher education."
He adds that no other country looks to its universities as
a prime source of athletic entertainment: "I believe that one
of the reasons why we attach
such importance to the results
of football games is that we
have no clear idea of what a
college or university is. Wei
can't understand these institutions, even if we graduated]
from one; but we can grasp the
figures on the score board."
Attacking  the   necessity  of
, competing in the open market
for players, Hutchlns points out

Thanks Given
(The following letter was
■•nt to President N. A. M.
Dear Sir:
We wish to express our personal thanks to you and to the
student body for the excellent
co-operation and support given
to our Blood Transfusion Service at the Blood Donor Clinics
held at UBC during the period
October 4th to 8th, 1954.
During this period 1877 members of the University attended
the clinic. This enabled us to
supply all hospitals in British
Columbia for one week and in
addition, to meet B.C.'s quota
of blood for gamma globulin for
two weeks. This was 300 over
our anticipated response.
Such s gesture is most commendable and speaks very highly of each and every one who
attended, as well as for the University for its co-operation. It
is only through such ccT-opera-
tion that we arc able to maintain this worthy service. We
are most grateful.
Yours very truly,
W. A. Freeman.

that unversity presidents cannot halt this corrupt practice
without running afoul of prominent alumni with endowment-
available money.
His hope for a solution to
the university's dilemna lies
in the slow but steady progress
of professional football, to the
point where people will no
longer pay to see college football. He longs for the day when
students will come to college
to study, and alumni will believe "that this is something a
normal, red- blooded, young
American can properly do."
Hutchins' reasoning is sound,
and we can sympathize'with
his desire for' universities to
attain a high educational level.
But we object to the tone of
his remarks: "We Americans
are the only people in human
history who ever got sport mixed up with higher education."
Surely Americans are entitled to be different if they want
to? There is no reason why
American — and Canadian —
universities should not be
"mixed-up" with sport.
It is not sport that universities must fight: it is the danger
of too much emhasis being placed on sport that must be
fought. Some American universities have apparently
fought a losing battle in this
respect, bringing despair to the
hearts of Hutchins and other
thinking people.

minority report, accused "the

duties properly" in setting up

The report also pointed out
that it was not Longstaffe's

of the far Eastern situation-
He painted the Japanese situation in very dark colours, stating that Japan could not forever go on living on relief, but
needed sources for industrial
raw materials and markets for
its products.
Professor Maclnnis seriously
feared that Japan would take
whatever helping hand that was
stretched out to it, even if that
hand should happen to be a
communist one, especially because Japan's natural markets
have always been in communist-held Asian territories.
The Chinese Communists
would be recognized if Pro-
fesor Maclnnis could have his
way. He pointed out very
strongly the traditional rivalries between China and Russia,
suggesting that the opportunities this offered must be exploited by the West.
For Vietnam, Professor Maclnnis could see little hope in
the future. He could not imagine that the weak Vietnamese
would ever resist an onrushing
Communist aggressor, because
of the lack of both administration and spirit.

Cool Clarinetist
The tarpaper walls of Hut HM1 will echo to the sounds
dispensed by one of the most starkly modern jazz group on
the West Coast, when Jazzsoc presents the Al Delbuchia Quartet today at noon.
Led by youthful clarinetist
Albert Delbuchia, the combo offers abstract, sparsely embellished treatments of standard tunes.
The sound the band produces
can only be characterized by the
adjective "cool".
Leader Delbuchia might well
be characterized by the same adjective. One of Vancouver's most
dedicated jazzmen, he is leader

With only three days' notice, UBC students responded
with gratifying spirit on Saturday night as they flocked to the

cooperation of student groups
in cancelling their plans for

and operation of the hop.

of coats at the dance was looked after by  Phrateres.
Other clubs and groups helping at the dance included Newman Club, Dance Club, Alpha

He has made several trips to

Lennie Tristano, the blind pianist
who founded the "cool school" of
jazz, and John LaPorta, the latest
apostle of the cool clarinet.
Despite his ultra-modern leanings, the Delbuchia style is
fluid, facile and pleasant— and
meaingful to the average listener. His tone is strongly reminiscent of Buddy DeFranco's.
Delbuchia will be ably assisted
at the noon concert by Ted Owen

and Murray Perry on bass.
Symphony   Here   On   Thursday
Presenting a two-hour programme next Thursday noon
in the Armouries under the

the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will be the third feature sponsored by the Special
Events Committee.
With the promise to give
to the students the opportunity of seeing and hearing
"finer" entertainment, Qerry

lined up a full and varied
itinery of events.
The amalgamation of the
Faculty's Fine Arts Committee under Profefaor B- C.
Binning, with the student's
Literary and Scientific Committee has made- possible the
bringing to campus of many
artists unable to be brought
under the sponsorship of smaller campus organizations, or
of  either  committee  alone.
Also available this year are
the facilities of the newly organized North West College
Lectures and Concerts Association. Through the Association, UBC may obtain at a
substantial saving, outstanding artists and speakers on
tour. One such artist obtained
was W. H. Auden.
Under this co-operative policy, students may be introduced to artists and lecturer!

have no opportunity to meet.
Included in the coming
events sponsored by SEC in
conjunction with Filmsoc is
a November showing of three
artistic films: "The Seasons,"
"Pacific 231," and "Picture

Highlight of the second
term will be a repeat performance of "Don Juan in
Hell" a dramatic reading by
four of Vancouver's top actors.

Chiefs Win At Last;
Braves Undefeated
Ruggermen Beat
Rowers,  Ex-Brit.
Last Saturday UBC rugger
Chiefs defied tradition and
ground Rowing Club "A" to a
21-0 defeat.
Leading 6-0 at the half, on
well-earned tries by Capt. Doug
MacMillan and Skip McCarthy,
Varsity gained power, confidence, and points as the game
In the second half the strongly conditioned Chiefs consistently pushed Rowing Club back,
and scored four more unconverted tries. Al Laird, Al Legg,
Mike Chambers, and scrum-er
' Bartlett did the honors, while
Rill Whyte added a rather difficult penalty kick.
j But ior the fact that kicker
Whyte, had what is generously
classed as an "off-day" with his
booting, the score, like the play,
would have been 'even more
Newcomers Dick Mcintosh
and Vallis played steady ball,
and fitted in smoothly with
the ever-increasing teamwork of
the Chiefs. Anderson was perhaps the day's outstanding player, and his tactics in setting up
the 94's with passes, contributed largely to the riotous victory.
Coach Albert Laith-(keep
away "e")-waite has taken to
smiling secretly when the McKechnie Cup subject is brought
up. Coaches who smile secretively are not to be trusted;
something is up their sleeves.
Whimsical, wistful or sad smiles
can be brushed off, but a Laith-
(nothlng)-walte "secret" smirk
bodes ill for someone.
And our ever-winning Brakes!
Against a rough, "play-the-
man" Ex-Brit club, coach Max
Howell's heroes successfully employed a "play-the-ball" style,
to quite outclass their opponents 18-3.
lt was definitely a running
game with an almost incredible
absence of kicking. Hitherto unknown Bobby McLeod swept
through the Brits for a "hat-
trick" of tries, (3 of 'em), another outstanding but preferably
"Nameless" player scored the
other try- The magic toe of
"Joltin'" Jawn Mulberry converted in 3 out of 4 attempts.
The Bell-Irving Cup is looking more and more like Braves'
property for '54. The cool ability of this neatly-knit team, may
conceivably carry them through
the season without a loss.
Poor Tomohawks! A hard
fought battle with "Kitty" Kats
wound up with UBC on the
short end of 12-8 count. Kats
had to earn every point, and
'Hawks came close at times.
Two teams out of three won
over the rugger weekend, so
which player should win the
free "Hot-Dog" of the week
award? Let's give the "Nameless" Brave scrum-14-ite a vote.
