hitter austerity budget of Paul Plant,

didn't expect to have another year
of skimping and scraping.

actually received. The first thing j

Must All Suffer For VOC?
The Varsity Outdoor Club have succeeded in working their way into the bad
books of the management of Brock Hall. They
performed this feat Wednesday, night when
they staged an affair in the lounge and
walked all over newly covered chesterfields.
Their most heinous sin was the spilling of a
bottle of indelible ink on the arm of one of
the same chesterfields.
Two weeks ago, the same organization

The Spread of Art
The current exhibition of Professor B.C.
Binning's studies in dimension bring to the
fore the outstanding contribution made to
art n B.C. by the university's architecture
and extension departments.
Professor Binning's work illustrates some
of the finest experimental work being done
,in North America.
But this is only a small part of the story.
One of the major flaws in our society is
Hall, it would appear that Student Council
made a bad error in granting them the loan.
.Clubs who behave with student property
the way the VOC has, don't even deserve
the benefit of the Student building.
Recurrence of the damage done to property in the building could very easily result
in the restriction of its use to other students.
It seems silly that the whole university should
hate to suffer for the ignorance of one small
If the VOC wants to walk over chesterfields and behave like a lot of small children
on a picnic, then we suggest they do it in
their own homes where the damage won't be
passed on to the entire student body.

the tendency to indulge almost exclusively
in canned entertainment. The individual all
too seldom makes a personal creative effort.
A recent tour of the interior by another
extension artist, Mario Prizek, disclosed hidden goldmines of amateur talent.
The extension department has made a
magnificent start. It is up to us and to the
provincial government to see that the program continues to expand.

Cluett, Peabody & Co.; limited. Paimting Adds to Life
Says Professor Binning
Primary purpose of all arts, including painting, is to add
Ito the interpretation and completeness of life.
L This opinion was expressed by Professor B. C. Binning of
[UBC's Architecture Department as he led a group of students
Ion the second tour of his paintings at 12:30 p.m. Thursday in
I fhe Art Gallery.
»Binnlng. formerly on the staff of
Ithe Vancouver Art School, told his
nidleiiee that ho realizes his palnt-
llngs are not art, but that he tries
Ito express the Joy of Ufe In his own
■terms. He maintains a strict form,
land  makes  his pictures with  flat
Isurfaces and with no great depth,
uses happy shapes und colors,
ind tries to get movements and tension into his work.
Referring  to  the  fact  that  some
jf his flags are flying the wrong
vay, he said that he keeps all his
canvasses balanced, instead of portraying  thc  strife  and  turmoil  of
life, he attempts to show the esthetic
truth, which he believes to bo
more Important.
Blnlnng's paintings are done on
what Lawren Harris oalls "thc creative motive." That Is lo say, instead of planning out the whole
picture before lui starts to work,
he starts In and Ihe picture begins
to paint Itself. However, one must
be careful that neither tho artist
nor the painting take over the whole
He concluded with the statement,
"1 do not feel that Canadians arc
as dull as they are told they are."
