To Seek
Will  Launch  New Campaign
For  Higher  Education Aid
(Ubyssey Staff Writer)
An intensified campaign to impress the federal government
with   the   need   for   educational   grants   will   be   launched
by the campus NFCUS committee this year.
This  was  decided  at  the  first** ;	
general meeting of the committee,
which was attended only by a sprinkling of enthusiasts.
A $26,00 federal grant for a new Student University Hospital at UBC was announced-at Ottawa Thursday by Hon. Paul
Martin, minister df National Health and Welfare.
-l ■: —— t~<^   The grant comes under a policy
which the dominion government
has followed for the past two or
three years of allotting $1,000 per
bed for acute cases in new general
hospitals.        i
To students, It means that
they #111 be able to receive trea-
ment as well as examination at
the university when they are ill.
To be located in the south half
fourth floor of the Wesbrook Building, the Hospital will be open to
all students, not just those residing on the campus. It will contain
26 bads, an operating room and
x-ray facilities.
The administration of the department of medicine is, In general, "pleased that the Hon. Paul
Martin and his department bave
seen fit to give support In' this way
to a hospital for students on the
campus at UBC."
"This is the normal procedure
followed in establishing new beds
In any hospital in Canada, once the
hospital has been recognised aa a
general hospital," a spokesman fpr
the faculty explained.
OPEN  |N '52
No date has yet been set for the
opening ol tbe hospital since no
equipment haa yet been installed
aad It ls Impossible to know bow
long It wW be before tho equip-
meat arrives. The faculty feUi
sure, however, that lt will be la
operation by Sept. 1952.
The amount provided by the government will be helpful in financing
the equipment, but It won't pay
for It all. Other funds will be needed.
The spokesman also mentioned
that "since the hospital is classified as a general hospital it Is
possible that it will be assisted
financially by BCH1S."
Tho hosipitul will be used for
medically acute oases, tor minor
surgery and possibly as a clearing
station for communicable diseases.
Major surgical operations will not
be performed there.
Negotiations for the grant were
made by the committee on health
and welfare under tho chairmanship of Dr. M. M. Weaver, dean ot
the faculty of medicine. The submission to Ottawa stated that
"The Students' University Hospital
is plumed to provide for acute Illnesses of students and occasional
faculty memibers at UBC."
The hospital will come under the
present University Health Service,
will have a permanent staff of
doctors and will operate on a 24-
hour basis.

Prof. Gets Lecture Material First Hand
There's at least one
member of UBC's faculty
who believes in getting his
information first hand.
Dr. Diamond Jeness, former
New SSealander now visiting
professor in anthropology at
UBC, found out about Eskimo
conditions hy living ns an adopted   member   of   an   Eskimo
tii-mily ou Victoria Island In the
Arctic village for two years.
Another year was spent with
the natives of New Guinea,
while still another was spent
with the H.C. Indians on the
Skeeua River and at Fort Graham. He stayed one winter with
the Indians of South Vancouver   Island,   the   Eraser   Valley
and   Chiliiwack.
Dr. Jeness' first job horo was
to classify u* display in UBC's
Anthropological museum. This
display had puzzled staff for
years, but Dr. Jeness soon solved the problem—he divided It
Into two groups, one for Items

one for those used by Eskimos.

The Underground Again
Rtamor has it that some of the councillor/'behind Tuesday night's motion of non-
confidence in AMS president Vaughn Lyon
are busy drumming up support for a new
Uon-cortfidence vote which will likely be
brought forward at next Thursday's general
H thia move does come, students will be
fiwed with a serious decision which, we suspect, the backers of the move hope will be
made in the emotional heat of the moment.
The mere fact that the movement is not
open is sufficient to cast doubts on the sincerity of its backers.
Students will do well to give objective
consideration to the problem in the interim.
No one will deny that, the AMS is, in
Almost every respect, being better run than
at any time in the last several years.
Activity is evident on all sides.
Despite budget problems, the student administrators have dtawn up an activity pro
gram which should satisfy almost everyone.
The LSE has a special events program,
unparalleled in UBC history.
Athletic activity is on the upsurge.
ISS and NFCUS have both prepared
y vigorous programs.
• Yet eight student councillors staged an
open revolt and charged Mr. Lyon with "dictatorial methods" and "misuse of his position."
The charges are vague and they were
so little substantiated that their backers were
forced to withdraw'them.
The problem is, of course, simply that
councillors suspected trouble from a president whom they felt had "political involvement" and, against the background of such
suspicions, actions which would have appeared as mere routine, are made to look like
major crimes. '
Students should realize that the suspicions are totally unfounded.
Necessary Symbol
The royal tour is finally under way and
Princess    Elizabeth    and    her    husband
have snatched the headlines from the oil
, crisis in Iran, the war in Korea and the British elections.
It is unlikely that anything short of a
triple-axe murder wilf drive them from the
front pages for the next couple of weeks and
this looks like a good time to ask ourselves
<just why we have a monarchy and find out
what the shouting's about.
A lot of students doubtless feel that the
whole thing is a lot of nonsense.
Yet even Ihey cannot deny that something would be missing if we were to chuck
■ the monarchy—tomorrow, and they will probably break their neeks Oct. 20 to catch a
glitttpSe of the princess when she is whisked
', across the campus.
j-      Strangely enough, the monarchy seems
• to be a symbol for the ideas which hold the
British Commonwealth together, for the tra
ditions of British Justice, political and Intellectual freedom, ahd, above, all for the
strange emotive concept called "fair play".
It is, of course, ridiculous to believe that
the individuals ^ho are used to symbolize this
polygot of ideas really .have anything to do
with the things themselves. Just as ridiculous,
in fact, as it would be to believe that the undressed girls in the' breakfast food ads have
anything to do with the quality of the porridge.
Yet we cannot deny that the symbols
play a necessary role in today's society and
wc cannot avoid being greatl'ul to the royal
family for taking on a rather nasty job which
few of us would want.
The respect which we owe them as individuals is, purely and simply, the respect
which is due to any individual who gives far
more to society than he can ever expect to
get in return.
Critic on the Hearth  - m*-^***
There is always something rather pleasant abdttt seeing* four gentlemen sitting
around their music stands, playing music for
string quartet. When these gentlemen can
make beautiful sounds, all together, they
constitute a most satisfying musical experience, satisfying at least to themselves.
.. But when these same four get upon a
jplatform to play for an audience, they are
faced not only with the problem of pleasing
themselves but also of pleasing their audience. Through projection, the music must
live again for us as well as they.
To the Griller Quartet who opened the
LSE concert season at noon on Thursday,
music is obviously something very real. They
couldn't play it so well from the technical
point of view, but for me their music was
something heard in another room.
Perhaps I didn't make sufficient effort
to help them project across the footlights but
whatever the problem, the result failed to
jell. Music to the Grillers proves to be a barrier they have not yet allowed us to clamber
across to complete musical satisfaction.
Of course their quartet playing is of a
different school than that of the American
and European quartets. The emphasis here
is on refinement, polished phrasing, slower
tempi and scrupulous observance of the
printed page even if such observance neglects
life breath.
I must admit that they didn't have much
of a chance to begin their program, The
Mozart" Quartet (K 159 in B flat) is not one
of that sublime genius's most considered and
inspired efforts. A little less reverence artd
humility in the approach to a very young
composer's work might have made for livelier
The only other work on the program was
a String Quartet by Sibelius, the Finnish
composer's only work in this form. There are
five movements subtitled 'jjntimate voices."
Although this was the first time that I have
heard this quartet, it strikes me as being
rather short on musical material and long
on playing time. The third movement (slow)
especially seemed drawn out, points being
stated too frequently and effects losing much
of their effectiveness thrbugh overstatement.
Also noticea'ble in this work was the
main weakness of the Quartet. It is one of
personnel. The first violin dominates not only
thought and in matters of leadership, as he
must do for the sake of smooth working, but
also in matters of tone. He did not blend and
was far too often accompanied by the other
instruments in passages where Sibelius had
obviously attempted to equalize the aural
importan-ce of the four. The cellist did not
always take too kindly to the first violin's
solist qualities and one sensed a clash in conception, a regrettable clash for obviously the
cellist is the "class" of the quartet.
To this listener, the Griller Quartet
seems as flavorless as English cooking but
just as substantial and nourishing as any, if
we prefer our foods without spice. They are
a good quartet but not quite my dish,
Kditor, The Ubyssey:
Another ounce of flesh has been
eklllfiully, If not painlessly, extracted from the students at UBC.
There ls a limit beyond which the
most skillful and daring surgeon
will go; that limit has been passed.
The latest extraction Is the 25
cent fee charged before students
may receive their Alma Mater
passes. Already each student pays
the exorbitant sum of 16 dollars
and now has to pay 25 cents to restive evidence thut he has,pald his
lee. It Is probably the first receipt
in history on which a payment ls
demanded. Even the Russians won't
claim that first.
The method used ln obtaining tho
added payment ls not only subtle,
It is dishonest. No student was Informed that he was to be charged
*.,* fee to be photographed for this
card, but on the contrary was told
lt was part* of  registration.
ffhat to me Is pure, unadulterated dishonesty.
I hope during the year the AMS
officials, clerks or whatever powerfi
that be, will derive some pleasure
from picking from the files my
dusty photograph and, gazing wistfully at the student who rSfiisell a
minor operation.
Yours truly,
Theo. G. Pearce,
2nd year law.
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Can the AMS officials explain
why the students' are being charged a fee of 25 cents to cover tha
cost of miniature photographs.
The fee in Itself is insignificant,
but the fact remains that unsuspecting students were herded Into a
photographer's booth on registration day and were not Informed
there was a charge for the pictures.
This new method of painlessly
extracting1 the student's money will
result In adding $1500 to someone's
till If WdO students pay the 25c.
I for one, do not Intend to be
taken in this manner because 1
believe my AMS fee should cover
such Incidentals and should also
rrntltle me to a membership cauci.
If this charge was absolutely
necessary, why were the students
not Informed when the plu»(oKn;*phs
were being taken?

Friday, October 12 1951
At DARKNESS fell Sunday
evening two members ot the
Varsity Outdoor Cliib found
themselves stranded on top ot
Mount Blphlnetone.
As both of them were experienced mountaineers there was
no real danger but probably
adme discomfort and disappointment at missing the dance.
. . Nearly 800 new and old members turned out for the Var-
eity Outdoor Club long hike
last week-end. It was a gay
and carefree crowd that left
the dock at the foot of Oore
Ave. at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon.
*VX group singing around the
piano provided music for the
two*, ami &ie-hatf hour trip to
Elphlnstone as they chanted
the traditional VOC songs. The
rest of the group congested on
tile top deck where they relaxed under the warm sun.

'  hiked the short distance from
Williams Landing to the YMCA

"dance broke up early to insure

trek next morning.;   *.
By shortly after $ Saturday

who oontlnued up hush-wacked

LATE NEXT morning we all
congregated on the float to watch
the hilarious antics of a few
not-go-dlgnlfled old members of
- the club. I don't think anyone
came away from the performance completely dry because if
they weren't actually thrown in
they were probably doused with
a bucket of water.
It was with reluctance we
•viewed the arrival of the boat
that afternoon and it was ao
unwilling group that slowly
boarded the craft.

Toughest Opposition Yet
The second game of the season for tiie Varsity Thunderbird
Soccer team will be played at Callister Park, next Sunday,
Oct. 14 at 2:30:
In this game Varsity meets Collingwood which is rated as
the top team of Varsity's opposition for the season.
Collingwood has played three ♦
games so far this year aad has
been victorious In each encounter.
Varsity has only a tie so far this
season, but the team is rapidly
getting into • condition.
The forthcoming game is reminiscent of last year's struggle between these two teams ln which
every league game ended In a tie.
But in the play-off game Varsity
defeated Collingwood by a score
of 4-2, thereby winning the Imperial Cup.
Collingwood will be all out for
revenge and so the Varsity boys
are preparing (or a close battle.
UBC Chiefs are also slated to
meet a top team ln their division.
The klckoff'ls at 2 p.m. at Confederation Park in North Vancouver when the team meets L & K
Lumber next Sunday.
■ Roger Fox, manager and coach,
expects the,team to be greatly improved over last year, mostly because of the reinforcements from
the freshman class.

Expression In Dancing
Creative expression In dance
is the primary concern of the
Modern Dance Club here on the
campus. The membership ls
composed of both experienced
and Inexperienced dancers, who
have formed the club because
of their enjoyment and Interest
In this creative phase of the
Dance, Itself, dates back to
primitive times and Modern
Dance is basically the primitive rhythmic urge given Individual expression. Interpretive
dance, aa modern dance is
sometime called, Is without the
restrictions associated with
ballet, where the ballerina dances to an established pattern.
The ballerina also emphasizes
the perfection and grace of traditional forms of the dance.
The modern dancer, In turn, la
herself a creator of form. Her
tradition Is freedom of-artistic
Last fall the Modern Danoe
Club, which was first formed at
that time, took part in a noon-
hour performance which displayed the various forms of
dance offered as recreational
activity on campus. In the
spring, the dance group had,
as its main production, a noon
hour demonstration which was
sponsored by the Literary Scientific Executive and the Fine
Arts Committee. The program
emphasized various methods
used in the approach and presentation of a* creative composition . '
This year the club's plan^
include another noon-hour show
and possible demonstrations at
various Vancouver VH 1 g h
The club meets weekly on
Tuesdays at 3:30 In the Women's Gym. All those who are

Strange as it may seem Athletic .Director Robert (Bob)
Roblnette says Saturday's
football tussle at Varsity Sta-
dluriv W'H he a revenge match
Whan the 'Birds meet Western
Washington Vikings.
ItOblnette terms the contest
"revenge" because Coach Ed ^"
Lappenbusch's Vikings got
themselves chopped up 14-0 last
week-end courtesy Pacific Lutheran. Vikings felt they were
headed for a big year this
* faU* In fact It's been said they
expected to go through the season undefeated.
However, when Bob tells us
lt will be "revenge" when Vikings tangle with the 'Birds
Saturday, we can only interpret his statement to mean that
the Vikings are going all out to
trample UBC, who they walloped 46*-6 in a conference contest earlier this year, simply
because they can beat UBC.
However, even though they're
plagued with Injuries, the local
gridders may Just come up with
a hit surprise Saturday.
For one .thing, Vikings can
dress only 26 men for this.game
under conference rules. That's
the limit.
ThusJelly Anderson's charges feel the Americans won't
be able to operate their two
platoon system.
•Birds have been drilling for
the past week on tuckllug,, wind
sprints and pass defence.
There will be some new faces
In the lineup Saturday. Anderson will choose from Don
McGlnnls, Jerry Nestman, Bob
McLean and Matt Henderson,
Biggest blow to the 'Birds
Vvas the loss for the year of
huge Gordy Hogarth; Gordy
had to quit after an old injury
started acting up.
Next practice of UBC hockey
team has been changed from Monday to Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. at
Kerrisdale Alpena.
* .     *       •
All men interested In either the
Junior or. Senior Varsity swim
squad are -requested to attend a
meeting on Friday noon at the
New <jym south, lecture room. This
is an Important meeting and the
last one before practices start.
Whoops! Sorry, Old Thing!
The first girl's basketball team
practice was last Wednesday from
4 to 6 o'clock ln the Women's Gym-
hasium. Approximately 28 girls
turned out for practice and Joan
MacArthur, the coaqh, feels sure
that two or three excellent teams
can be selected from this group.
In fact, the whole first string of
last year's team, with the exception of Mimi Wright and Doreen
Brinham are back on the campus.
Eleanor Cave will hold down centre spot with her excellent pivot
shot. Sheila Moore and Pat Donovan, guards, and Eleanor Nyholm
and  Jan   Crafter,  forwards,   com
prise the rest of the first string.
With much more time In the
gymnasium this year, it is1 believed
we will have a really good team,
and probably enter the Senior A
League, There are four teaips ln
Senior A this year.'They are: Majorettes, Eilers, Kitsilano Community Center and Thunderettes. This
will prove excellent competition
because last years" Eilers team
has broken up and are now playing on two teams. The winner of
the league will be sent to the Canadian Women's Basketball finals
in the East, for the playoffs.
Arts Grey Set The Pace

the volleyball tussle. Arts I Grey set the pace in the Tuesday 'opener, trimming the Hillel olub by eleven points.,
while Arts I Yellow beat an enthusiastic VOC crew 22 to
Although VOC went down to defeat they were the
most colourful team on the floor as well as on the sidelines, where they had a strong cheering section.
