Mix up In Brock Booking
May. Mean Loss To LSE
The AMS faces a loss of between $350 and $1,000 dollars
due to a double booking in Brock Hall on March 21.
Both  the   LSE  Special  Events*
joncety  featuring  Suzanne Bloch,
•inger and Instrumentalist, and
international House's Vienna Ball
were scheduled for Brock Lounge.
Also scheduled for the same
night is "Much Ado About Noth*
'ng", a Player's Club production.
P?tviously, the 1.SE Special Events
committe, had tome to an agreement wltu th* Player's Club over
competition for 'audiences.
"There is no double booking,"
according to Lintott. "1 do not
have the LSB" scheduled In my records," he said.
* The contract with M{jM Bloch
was signed in October ** 196.1 and
Allan King, Special- Events chairman, says that when the contracts were signed by Phil Anderson all bookings were made.
King Is trying to get the night
of his concert changed to Saturday, March '22, and has wired Mies
Bloch's  manager.
If the date cannot be changed,
the LSE has agreed to move the
faculty club. However, the LSE in
tended to recoup its losses on this
"This performance, like that ot
Andres Segovia, is our big money
maker uf the year," stated.. King.
Several students wondered whether a ticket to the Vienna Ball
would also entitle them to see Suzanne Bloch.

Four hundred years ago, English musi'j rose tb a pitch of maturity and beauty "hot since rivalled In that country TTntTT the present day. Parallelling the growth

Fee Raise Motion
Tabled By Council
The Men's Athletic Directorate has proposed a $2.75 AMS
fee increase. * 	
"The increase will give "Students
free admission to all athletic
events, and will stabilize and enlarge minor sports," said Bill
Sparling, MAD president, ln his
to Student's Council  Mon-
John de Wolfe, speaking on behalf or Ihe clubs, stated LSE opposed any fee increase, that 90 percent of clubs expressed this opinion.
The Undergraduate Societies
Coiiiinitt.ee is also opposed to any
fee Increase according to Geof.
Pringle, chairman elect.
Sparling disclosed that the $2.75
boost would give the MAD an additional $i;..(Mi(). Of this $11,000 would
be used to replace student gate
receipts, and $-1,000 for minor
sports   and   women's   athletics.
Sparling has Informed the
Ubyssey that he will be in office every noon hour this week
to discuss the proposed fee increase with any interested students.
"The five dollar intra-mural fee
would lie eliminated. Students
would get free admission to the
university golf course, and other
savings such as elimination of the
athletic clubs fees, free request
racquets for badminton players,"
said Sparling. !

Tho Brothers
The cup of Aristotle's heady Wlhes,
the cup of Newton's clear and acid gin ....
I Seldom touched these valued Columbines.
Yet gladly did I toast them, tb the din -
of my brothers'laughs. .■
And no regret .
for draining down that philosophic beer
do I feel now. Our fates, mirrowed in the wet
table-top, did not display the leer
of witless, hopeless ignorance, Hhe kiss
of sobering years was lacking ln out flock
of eyes. £#■'
But each eye scanned tiie precipice
ahead fbr footholds, for a ledge of rock
from which to spur our climb; because the bllSs
of youth had left unwound the global clock.
And yet, my brothers did not waste those hours
in which they took the glass, and not the cup.
We used the time td mock the paper towifrl
df hypocrites' prestige—though ending titf
inside of these ourselves—. We scoffed' tifc those
we said were narrow-minded—and refused
to change our views, despite the cons and pros—.
Oh no, those hours did not slip by unused.
That universal whirl of frantic eyes
upon tHe tiSlfeitbjpij became out* grope
for otie utlfflbrtal glance beyond the skies
of meh.

and fate, the glass df young blood's restless Stir,

They're asking in the UByssey,
About our dear fraternities;
Some say "no," and s&me say "oui,'
But its of no concern to me,
For I think that it's clear, yoU see,
The problem is the Fabulry!    ,
The Faculty \frears no cashmere,
In cellar dungedns drinks no beer;
There's rtb initiation,
(They're paid, in fact, tb jbirt!)
But they feel that they afe, I Hear,
To the students ft* superior.
The Fafculty wears no gbld pins,
^serves no table in this caf,
Hut some, not all, of them, I fear,
Are haughty, SttbMJlsh, view as asses
Studfents Who Would dare approach 9
Them outside bf their formal classes.
A fourth year man, the other day,
Was filled with joyful tattte^
He claims (and he's a truthful chap)
A member df fHe Faculty,

And balled' hihi by his Christian name!

TACTICAL GROUP BAND played fbr UBC students yes-
day in the auditorium. Leader of the band is Flying Officer
Study Classics
Of Literature
For thirty-two years a
group of students has been
meeting every alternate
Tuesday to hear and discuss a paper pn some tbglc
of literary interest. The
students are members of
the Letters Cliib, Which'
was fbuhded by £rbfesidr
Larsen and dedicated to
the study of literature "as
Constitution ot th,e Club
ls essentially this: Membership i.** limited to 20 students,
who iro In third and fourth
years of university, and an effort ls made to have, an equal
liiimbeir of men and women.
Prdspi&tlve members apply for
admission at the end of their
second year. Papers are writ-'
ten only by fourth year students.
The subjects of the papers
are as varied as the interests
of the people who write them,
and may range, as they have
this year, from Plato to the
comic h trips. But whatever
the subject is, lt must be well-
The club prides itself on the
quality of its work. The papers
are given to the library, where
they are bound and catalogued
so that, whoever wishes may
use them for reference.
It must be understood that
the club is not a glorified seminar. Like nearly all campus
clubs, its chief attraction Is a
social one. The meetings are
held at the homes of members
or friends of the club, which
makes for a gracious atmosphere, and after the reading of
the paper refreshments are
served and a pleasant hour or
two is spent chatting.
Orie meeting each year is set
aside for the reading of original contributions, and a prose-
Laureate ahd a poet-Laureate
is chosen and crowned.
While mafay ot the members
of the Letter Club are arts students, students from other faculties are encouraged to join.
Indeed, the club hopes to achieve a certain breadth of interests by having all fields of
study represented among its
members. The time to apply
for admission is now. Letters
may be sent to Miss Isobel
Webber care of Letter's Club

Men Start
Cup Hunt Sunday
YESTERDAY at 12 noon, peace and quietness reigned in
die Ubyssey Sports Office; the usual haze of blue smog
was errupting from MacGillivray's cigar Al Fotheringham
was seated in the corner quietly paring his toe-nails', and I
was giving V. Fred Edwards (a pink-cheeked lad of 18 *
:. summers), some valuable advice on how to handle frustrated
-females. Suddenly the tranquility was broken by earth-
shattering' hoof-beats, a second later a wild-eyed co-ed
•. brpke into the room.
, "Where lo Blue'Blases Is that Ezra Wheatcroft?" lt shouted.
"I'll break his back." For an awful moment, no one said a word.
Then V. Fred's querrelous falsetto broke the silence. "I s'pose he's
still over it the Aggie Barns, Ma'm. He's In that fertilising 100
courae y'know—yesterday he didn't get over here'tlll three o'clock
. . .said something about being up to his neck in er . . . work."
; By ndw you readers will be possibly wanting some explanation
for this little episode . . . Well, it. seems one Ezra Wheatcroft
turned ln a rather nasty wrttenip on a "programme Modern Dance,"
which was presented iby the Women's Phys, Ed. Department, last
Monday, gome of ths girls (?) got their dander up when they viewed Esra'i Fork ln the Tuesday Ubyssey, and hence the mad attack
on the Sports Department.
Audience Reaction
The -whole mess has been cleared up now though ... It seems
' that Bk. •Strolled into the Ubyssey Officers the other day. (He was
looking for tt>« Lost and Found. He had lost hia Fertilising 100
sample case.) At this point, an impetuous Bdltor who mistook
Wheatie for a cub reporter (they all smell alike) sent him out to
cover the Dance Show. Apparently Es. didn't Quite Understand. He
thought it wm s stock-Judging contest set to music. A sample para*
graph taken form the pages of Tuesday's Ubysey are ample proof
of this . . . "The program reads, fantasies on'shimmering, starlit
Ice. although the resemblance was more ot Inebriated calves on
cracked ice."
Somehow I don't/think Modern Dance is ln Wheatle's line.
This writer saw the show, and I think it takes a person who really
appreciates the Arts ... culture ... the finer things in lite.
Judging from the audience that attended this show, I should
sax that the men on this campus are truly aesthetic . . .90 per cent
of the audience was male, S per cent female the rest were . . . professors. Fine Art has its own peculiar effect on the male of the.
species .. . Tbe first number on the program: was "A Salutation In
(Movement." This was a tricky little Item/ In which about 15 muscular
co-eds, who had been poured Into 15 black, Bikini style gym-suits,
slithered about the stage in time to a pounding piano. This stirring
example of Art was greeted by hoarse, prlmeaval groans from a
goodly number pf the audience. Even the boys In the back row
of the balcony had blood shot eye-balls.
A Stock-Judging Contest
Seriously though, I do think that they should have sent our
other press representative from the Agricultural Faculty (Big
Barnsmell) to cover the show. After all, he is more the aesthetic
type—-Doesn't he read 5 copies of Classic Comics every dayZ
Having done a Uttle work on the Massey Report myself, I was
Interested In finding out how the audience received the performance. Here are some typical reaction;
Lulu L^rgebottom (I Phelta Thigh Sorority); "Really Dahling, it
was too too . . ."
Hamstrung MC Oooch (3rd  year Agriculture); "I'll never look another cow In the face again."
Caspar Milquetoast (1st year Arts);  "When do vve eat?"
Cuthbert Clunk (3rd. year Engineering) "Uh yeah ... da show—
'Twas fine . . . reminds me of the good oiu days uuwn at the avaie
Tneatre. uut wiiat happened to yueenie:'
That's the beauty ot true Art friends* ... it affects us all in
different ways . . . Bring on the Glr-rlst
