MacKenzie   Approves   Socred
Endowment Lands 'Master Plan
Ticket sales for the East-West game November 27 are
not going as well as hoped for.
In the first week of sales by students to downtowners

500 tickets, only 3 % of the 15,000 objective.
All orders for outside tickets, as well as student purchases must be finished by November 20.

Western   Aid   Late

"Why is it that mankind is not willing to spend in the
war against poverty, while it will spend anything to fight men?"
This question was put Friday
by a Malayan-born graduate of
a Western University, to a large
audience of students attending a
United Nations Club sponsored
noon-hour meeting in Arts 100.
Lewis Perinbam, globe-trotting Executive Secretary of the
World University Service of Canada, declared that Western aid
to the non-communist countries
of Asia under the Point Four and
Colombo Plans had come too late
to make much impression on the
Discussing the prospects of
Communism in Asia, Mr. Perinbam flatly stated that the Asians
were thankful for Communism.
"Without the threat of Communism the West would never

he said, adding that the aid
presently given would have
carried greater weight if il had
come before the war.

Wants Room to Grow'
-About 500 Acres
j President Norman A. M. MacKenzie has given his
"'wholehearted' approval of the new "master plan" for the development of the University Endowment Lands announced by
Lands and Forests Minister R. £. Sommers.
"I assume the people working on the plan are capable,
of course," he said. "If the plan is good, it should be welcomed
with open arms. It has been needed."
At the same time Dr. Mae*
TOUGH HOMBRE Gerry Geuest attempts to force his
evil Intentions upon the heroine Joane Humphy, who cries,
no doubt, "shew, shew, Baby." In background are Gerry
Gilbert and Caroline Bell, doing their wooing with considerable Elizebethan finesse. (Note Handkerchief.) The occasion is the UBC Player's Club's fall showing of Shaw's "The

by columnists Eric Nicol and Barry Mather.
Sponsored by the Beta Theta

and heads sticking out of the
windows and doors.
A float on which medical-
minded cavemen compounded
their prescriptions in a steaming

second prize.
The parade was possibly one
of the last Vancouver will see,

passed a by-law limiting parades
to Sundays and holidays.

B.C. Needs
Speaking on "Education's
Greatest Problem," 'as guest
speaker of the campus Social
Credit Club. Provincial Minister of Education, Hon. Ray
Williston, stressed the serious
lack of secondary school teachers
in the province.
"We have at present 108 students in Teacher's Training at
the university," Williston said,
"when we require close to 400.
Our whole educational structure will tumble if we can't
find a way to encourage more
students into the profession, and
the question now is how long
can we last."
Establishment of faculties of
dentistry and music, as well as
a college of education at UBC
was described by the minister
as  "desirable."
The program of financing such
extensions was set as the basic
problem to be faced.
Williston also included university housing as a part victim of
this  problem.
Speaking of other problems to
he solved by his department, the
educational minister outlined
the policy of "equalization of
assessment," based on Dr. Max
Cameron's report of educational
"The distribution of government funds to municipalities is
one of the most difficult prolific said.

Two UBC students shipwrecked on a lake near Chilliwack

AMS business director II. B.
Maunsell  announced   Monday.
Maunsell made no comment
on   the   affair,
".The whole thin.n leaver me
tpeeculess,"   he  said.
Kensie outlined • three-point
explanation ef what the University expects fer Itself from
the plan—the ehlef point be*
ing mere land fer expansion.
Lands Minister Sommers an
nounced the new scheme Satur
day, charging that previous provincial governments had "no rational plan" for development of
the endowment lands. He said
expenses of the lands are presently surpassing income by $9000
per month.
The provincial government
has engaged the Canadian
Equity and Development Co. of
Toronto to draw up the plan. It
has sinee been learned that the
company president, Carl Fraser,
died after—not before—the plan
was finished, and lt is now on
its way to the government.
Dr. MacKenzie explained that
it is the third such plan drawn
up. One was' completed in 1926
by Dr. E. A. Cleveland, chairman of the Greater Vancouver
Water Board,. And one based on
this was done in 1946 by a U.S.
town planning expert.
Here's what Dr. MacKenzie
expects of any new plan:
1. Enough land reserved for
University purposes free from
t buildings that "we will never
in ihe future be cramped or
limited." He said this would be
about four to five hundred additional acres to the south and
east of the present campus,
and including Acadia Camp.
2. The area developed intelligently and efficiently. "This
is one of the most attractive
residential areas anywhere on
the North American continent
close *o a large city," said the
President. "It hat unusual pos-
•ibilites. if its development is
wisely planned."
3. As much out of the disposal of the land as can be
obtained, "either in the form
of land reserved or income
from endowment— especially
the former. "It would be very
nice if we could keep in a
semi-park condition -— like
Stanley Park—some land until
it is needed."
Dr. MacKezle added that he
believed that any land used for
business and apartment blocks
should be leased instead of sold
Explaining the history of the
endowment lands, the President
said that back in. "dim and distant history" the government had
considered laying aside land in
the Cariboo for University revenue, but the plan was rejected
as unwise.
When the University was established on Point Grey, two or
three hundred acres were allowed for the University campus
with thc remaining area held ii.
trust for University endowmer'
Then 3.6 acres were reserve^
on the point for the crown, to b.
used as a wireless station anc
10 acres were reserved along
Wesbrook for military purposes.
Then the University was given
an additional grant to make its
total acreage about 540 acres.
Remainder of the lands wore set
aside for tho benefit of the University as endowment lands
about  30 years ago.
Dr. MacKenzie said he is
"not so 3ure" that the lands
were mismanged by previous
governments as charged by
Mr. Sommers, but he empha
sized he could nol say one
way or the other.
He   added;   "lm   not   so   sure
money could have been made on
development of these lands up
to the present. And I am not
sure of how much, can be realized on them in the future."   .
Lands Minister Sommers announced his new plan to Frank
Walden, Victoria correspondent
of the Vancouver Sun. The University has not yet received an
outline of it..
Mr. Walden said the Lands
Minister contended that the endowment lands "are not fulfill*
ing their purpose."
That tpurpose was to turn the
3,497 rolling wooded, acres in
the Point Grey area into "high1-
class residential homesites" end
provide a resulting fund which
properly invested, was to return,
in perpetuity, money to endow
But the university has never
received a cent directly from
any such fund. As lt stands today, there is practically no endowment fund.
All that is left in the kitty
today after present development of the university endowment lands is approximately

Second Chance
The proposed overhaul of university endowment land
plan by Lands and Forest Minister R. E. Sommers shows
• tommendable, if belated realization of UBC's financial
The original scheme for providing UBC with an annual
Income from endowment, land revenues appears to have
boon a colossal failure. Only $800,000 is left out of grants
and revenue* totalling nearly $5,000,000.
With present expenditures exceeding present Income,
this fund will be drained away in a few years leaving UBC
without income or space.
The provincial government's plan, if implemented soon
gnough, could avoid such a situation developing.
It is encouraging that the university's future financial
needs are receiving attention from the government.
However,, it is more encouraging to note that Attorney
General Robert jBonner has promised that the university's
present and presing needs for new buildings and facilities
Will be considered in his forthcoming budget.
Minister Sommers has blamed previous provincial governments for the failure of the university endowment land
It is surprising that any government could he naive
»ough to allow the present situation to develop.
We hope* however, tha tthe long range plans for the
Improvement of the university's financial situation will not
be used to sidetrack more pressing immediate problems.
The floats have all been dismantled; the Naden Band
has packed up and gone home; the Birds have chalked up, if
nothing else, a moral victory; Homecoming was a success.
And much of the credit must go to Ron Longstaffe. The
prodigious job of coordinating the monumental project, and
coordinating it with laudable'finesses, was handled by Mr.
He effectively organized his committee and efficiently
planned events to produce throughout the entire complicated
celebration a cooperative spirit and a polished performance.
An orchid to Mr. Longstaffe.
Last week an announcement from an eminent scientist
told the world that if you are not dead five minutes after an
H-bomb blast, you are alive. As one journalist commented,
Every few weeks a speech by one of Canada's leading
physicists is recorded in the newspapers. In these speeches
these experts invariably-speak of new weapons that will
blow the world to hell in jig time.
Maybe we are being unrealistic, but we wish that these
speech-makers and civil defense authorities would cease
their forecasts of doom.
A world that is constantly living in a tense atmosphere
of hydrogen fever will eventually become a world burned
up by that same fever.
As we said, we may not be very realistic, but life is short
and it would be nice if we could hear of how our lives might
be bettered instead oi destroyed.
Time For A Change
Students who felt that Homecoming weekend and the
last game of twelve of our Thunderbirds were excuses enough
to remove the goal posts from Howie McPhee Stadium on
Saturday after the game are being "censured" by athletic
director Bus Phillips. These students, who were getting
tired of hearing the cry "Apathy" echoed throughout our
campus, decided to do something about it on Saturday to
show some appreciation of the 'Birds efforts.
Anywhere else in Canada, removing goal posts is considered to be a part of the after-game activities of any enthusiastic crowd, but at UBC it is considered to be "poor taste,"
if we may coin a phrase.
As a result, the students involved must now start a
"Goal Post Fund" to replace the missing lumber. It is hoped
that the less apathetic members of! our student body will get
behind this drive, and prove that we are all interested in
more spontaneous displays of student enthusiasm and less,
much less, apathy.
We will need enough money for three posts: one at
Howie McPhee Stadium, and two to come at Empire Stadium.

"It's a rotten world and a rotten game" is the philosophy
of Blanco Posnet in G. B. Shaw's play "The Shewing-Up of
Blanco Posnet" scheduled -for production by the Players Club.
The play serves as a vehicle
for Shaw's usual attacks on the
individual and society. Shaw's
humour and philosophy make
light of Blanco Posnet trying
hard to be a "Bad Man," The
"Bad Man" is portrayed by
Jerry Guest. Other principles in
the cast are Jeanette Lambert
and Rich Conway.
James John, CBC actor and
director of TUTS for six years,
directs the  play.
| "The Critic,' by R. B. "Sheridan, a humorous satire directed at plays and critics. At the
time it was first produced "The
Critic" had such an effect on
the theatre that tragedy was
literally laughed off the stage.
In the cast are John Brockington, Jerry Gilbert, Fred Howell
and Margarita Kuznetson.
The presentation of the two
plays marks the 39th annual fall
play production of the UBC
Players Club. Another fall performance of the Club will be
the reading of the play "Duchess
of Malfi."
The Players Club is composed
mostly of members who have had
experience in the outside world
of drama. Lester Sinclair and

Thirty abstract paintings by
Avante-Garde in Quebec have
been selected for the Western

Many of the young French
Canadian artists have never before exhibited in Western Canada, Boux stated.
There will be a noon hour
tour of the Avante Garde paintings on Thursday, November 18,

Since the endowment fund's
inception in 1923, about $2,700,-
000 has been collected from
land sales, improvement charges,
water rates and taxes.
In addition the government
put in $2,200,000 to gel the project   underway.
What has gone  wrong?
In Mr. Sommers' opinion,
there has been no rational development by previous governments, which administered the
area then — as now—through
the provincial lands department.
Previous 'governments, the
The semi-formal dance to be J minister      complained,      have
built up the area "haphazardly,
doing a piece here and a piece
there." •
"What we are undertaking is
development which will follow
well-thought-out platos so the
lands will fulfil the function
for wjiich they were set aside,"
he said.
Separate grants are made out
enue for UBC operation and
maintenance and for new campus buildings.
This current year's grant to
UBC was $2,700,000, up $200,-

set aside this year for new
buildings, but Attorney-Goneral
Robert Bonner promised consideration would be given to
construction in the 1953-56
On top of that, the government from consolidated revenue
makes a yearly grant to the
endowment lands to meet current charges there and at the
university. In 1953-54 the
grant was $05,000. This year it

Xou have seen concrete pouring down a
trough from a mixer. Can you imagine this heavy,
wet mixture being carried by a blast of air through
a 6-inch steel pipe—blown up more than 200 feet,
blown around corners, along thc level or straight
down for 1600 feet.
When Inco engineers decided that there would be
advantages in using concrete instead of wood as
supports in many parts of the Creighton mine they
had to find a way to transport the wet concrete
from the mixer to the working locations.
A continuous blast of air from thc mine's high
pressure system is used to carry hundreds of tons of
concrete through thc intricate mine workings. With
new methods such as this, Inco is continually improving the efficiency of its mining operations. ^.

Central Stages Second Half
Rally To Rob Birds Of Win
Intermission, Harriman,
Chill UBC's Rampaging
By Ken Lamb
A quarterback named Bill Harriman and a 25-minute half-
time period combined Saturday to cool a Thunderbird first
half offensive and rob the Birds of what seemed their first
Evergreen Conference win.
Overcoming a Thunderbird 18-0 first half lead, Harriman
led his Central Washington Wildcats to a 25-18 win before
5500 UBC Homecoming fans.

For the Birds last Evergreen
Conference game of the year,
Don Coryell called upon Birds
who had never played all year
to replenish his injury-riddled
Birds, almost pulled the runaway of the year, running all
over the Wildcats and scoring 3
unconverted touchdowns in the
first half. John Newton, on 65-
yard pass and run play, engineered by Ted Duncan, rang up
the first scoreboard lights after
Jerry Nestman had intercepted
a Central pass.
Rae Ross, who played a great
game, took a pitchout for the
second TD, and Dick Matthews,
who played what the long-time
experts call the finest game of
his career, caught a short Duncan pass in the end zone to give
the white uniforms a 18-0 hall-
time score.
But in the second half, Harri
man personally scuttled the

yardage plays from a single pattern and doing some fine running
himself, to give Central their
second conference win.

Regarding East-West, Queens

league, trouncing McGill Saturday while runner-up Western
was held to a tie by Toronto.
Don Spence, who improves
every time he steps on the<

time and again running through
the Central defence.

Statistically, the Birds were
definitely superior. They compiled 16 tirst downs to Central's
14 on 384 yards rushing and passing to Central's 228.

Central's Don Pierce, 23. Though he was clobbered this
time by players unseen on the left, Pierce contributed 2
touchdowns to Central's 25-18 win. —Maze Photo.

Roads a 13-12 win over UBC
Jayvees here Sunday afternoon
in what will probably be the
last game of the yea'r for the
' baby Birds.
Though victims of a few crucial fumbles, the Jayvees led
most of the game and held a
territorial edge until the military
college cadets, defeated once in
Victoria Junior league play, uncorked a flanker right play and
UBC, led by the brilliant defensive play of- quarter Ian Stewart, early in the first quarter
pushed the cadets to their ten
yard line when Stewart intercepted a pass and ran 40 yards.
After Roads took over and
lost the ball in their own territory, Ian MacKenzie recovered
a cadet fumble and skipped 8
yards for the Jayvees first touchdown. Tony Pantages, who kicked a 45 yard single later in the
game, converted.

good at the blue line.

Birds Tie
Varsity held onto their chances
of staying in the second division
by coming up with a one-all tie
with Dominion Hotel, while
Chiefs were getting dumped by
Penitentiary Penguins 3 to 1.
Jerry Rovers sent a first half
goal into the nets as both sides
slipped and slithered around in
the water-logged muddy field,
which aided the defense time
and time again. Dominions sank
a penalty late in the game.
Over on the banks of the
Fraser, Penguins out-played and
outclassed Chiefs to end their
winning streak at one game.

Grads Do A Repeat,

UBC's rookie-loaded Thunderbird basketball team met the
past heroes of Point Grey court activities Saturday night in the
