Housing Scheme
To Be Investigated
By  Fraternities
A proposed scheme to make fraternity houses exempt
from Endowment Land taxes, and at the same time provide
a partial solution to UBC's burgeoning housing problem is
being investigated by UBC fraternities.
Under the plan, fraternities with houses on camp'us
would turn their property over to the University, whose land
is not taxed by the Provincial Government.
Fraternities would retain full use of their houses, however.
This  would  result  in  an  an-

$1000, and another $1000 is hoped for before the drive closes. $2000 is needed to finance the three scholarships, WUSC officials estimate.

As Students Fill Armouries
"The freedom to enquire, to hold differing opinions, to follow where reason leads us;
these things have to be maintained by people resolute in the faith that without these
things, the world cannot progress."
With these words, Dean Geoffrey C. Andrew set the solemn
keynote Tuesday noon in a ceremony in UBC Armoury honoring the eforts of Hungarian
students and rebels.

Faculty and students this
week have rallied to the Hungarian scholarship cause to the
tune of $1,800, officials of the
committee announced yesterday.
Over $1,000 was raised in the
campaign staged a t conspicuous points on the campus on
Tuesday morning, ASUS president Bill Davis reports.
An   additional   $200   was   collected   at  Tuesday  noon's  rally

According to officials of the
Hungarian Relief Committee,

ENCOURAGE   BUILDING
The tax saving would encourage fraternities without
houses, or with houses off campus, to build on UBC's "Greek
Row" on Wesbrook Crescent,
providing UBC Housing officials with up to $500,000 worth
of badly-needed student accomodation  on   campus.
The three fraternities now on
"Greek Row," Phi Delta Theta.
Phi Gamma Delta and Beta
Theta Pi, have already expressed interest in the plan, Phi
Delta Theta President Keith
Liddle said Wednesday. "But
there is no assurance yet that
the University administration or
other fraternities will accept the
plan," he emphasized.
PROPOSED BY ALUMNUS
The plan was originally proposed to the University Administration by Phi Delta Thata alumnus last year. The matter was
referred to Professor Carrothers,
Faculty advisor to IFC, who submitted the scheme to the fraternities involved.
A fraternity President's meeting last week set up a committee to investigate the feasibility
of the proposed plan, and will report to Professor Carrothers
next week.
"WAIT AND SEE"
All fraternities are said to
approve of the plan in principle,
but have adopted a "wait and
see" atitude until Ihe plan is
proven feasible.
Nearly all fraternities plan to
build on campus "as soon as
finances permit;" but in some
cases, this could mean never.
However, Liddle stressed, unanimous approval of the scheme is
not necessary. A single fraternity could conceivably adopt the
plan, but Administration officials are expected to show more
interest in a "package deal."

Protests  Segregation
Colonialism
Soon after the last Great War ended and as a result
of a war and hunger for peace of the peoples of the world,
the U.N.O. came into being. The General Assembly of the
U.N.O. came to represent the minds of. the world community and its desire for peace. If the General Assembly
mainly faced political problems of the world, its specialized
agencies were charged with a work of equal if not greater
importance in economic, educational, scientif and cultural
spheres. Man does not live by politics alone nor indeed
wholly by economics. Nevertheless, violence and hatred still
dominate the world. The doctrine of inequality of men
and races is preached and praticed; democratic principles
of dignity, equality and mutual respect are denied or ig-
' nored. Some countries dominate over others and hold their
people in subjection denying them freedom and right to
grow; and armed might is used to suppress the freedom of
countries.
We see today in Hungary a.s well as in E^ypt both
human dignity and freedom outraged and force of modern
arms used to suppress peoples and to gain political objectives. The old colonial methods which we had thought in
our ignorance belonged to a more unenlightened age, are
revived and practiced. In other parts of the world also the
movements of freedom are crushed by superior might.
And so we live in the world of unreality where profession
has little to do with practice. When that practice imperils
the entire future of the world then*it is time that we come
back to reality in our thinking and in our action. At present
it appears that the great countries think that the only
reality is force and violence and that fine phrases are merely* an apparatus of diplomacy. This is a matter which con_
cerns all of us in whichever quarter of the world we may
live. But in a sense it concerns us in Asia and Africa more
perhaps than in other countries for some of our countries
have recently emerged into freedom and independence and
we cherish them with all our strength and passion. We are
devoting ourselves to serve our people and to better lives
and make them grow in freedom and progress. We have
bitter memories of the past when we were prevented from
so growing and we can never permit the return to that
past age. And yet we find an attempt made to reverse the
current of history and of human development. We find that
all our efforts at progress might well be set at naught by
the ambitions and conflicts of other peoples. Are we not
to feel deeply when our life's work i.s imperiled and our
hopes  and  dreams  shattered?
Who says colonization is dead? let us not be deceived or
even soothed by that. Colonization is not yet dead. How could
one dare to say it is dead .so long as vast areas of Asia,
Africa and even Central and Eastern Europe are unfree!
Colonialism was and is an evil thing and must be eradicated
from the earth. How i.s it possible to be disinterested about
colonialism9 We, the Asian and Africans have known it in
all its ruthlessness. We have seen the immense human wast,
age it causes, the poverty it causes, and the heritage it
leaves behind when, eventually and reluctantly, it is
driven out by the inevitable march of history. Do not think
of colonialism only in the classic form which we Asians
and Africans know. Colonialism has also its modern dress,
in the form of economic control, intellectual control, actual
physical control by a small but alien community within
a nation. It is a skilful and determined enemy, and it appears in many guises. Whenever, wherever and however
it appears, colonialism is an evil thins and one which must
be eradicated from this earth. Democracy should be encouraged and the people should be permitted everywhere to
decide themselves whatsoever their desire is without any
kind  of external  pressures.

A Southern Student
'Strangled By Tradition'
(Editor's Note: — The following article, reprinted from the
"Gamecock." student newspaper of the University of
South Carolina, resulted in the
dismissal of the Gamecock Editor as page in ihe South Carolina State Legislature).
By R. L. MORTON
Man's first passion was a
grunt. With evolution, he has
molded and shaped his emotions with color and song and
speech. Sing we must, else go
mad. Speak we must, else the
throat choke and burst with
silent truths. Speak we must,
before its too late, Listen.
I am ashamed to be called a
"Southerner." By biological
accident, I. like most of you,
am a native South Carolinian.
With you, I am a student at the
University of South Carolina, a
rather large school, admirably
progressive in everything except the desire to forget the
past.
Throttled by this slavish and
solitary stigma, we are not attempting to free ourselves. Unconsciously, we have been smothered and strangled with tradition, the so-called "Southern"
tradition, a backward looking
and odious attitude appropriately attributed only to the
United Daughters of the Confederacy.
For several years, I have
been a page in the State Legislature. They, too, form a rather large school. And this is
a monumental session in 1956.
Arrested by the decision of
"nine old men" on the United
States Supreme Court, they are
intent on circumventing movements which would abolish segregation of the races in our
state.
Southern Governors and legislators have been the embar-
assing sound tracks for the
South. Tempered by custom,
they speak with weighty, obstreperous and irrational voices.
Never have they spoken for
me and some of you. Never
could they speak for those who
feel as we do.
Being a Southerner, my decrying segregation is worse
than damning a venerable old
god. But most gods are merciful and understanding; many
Southerners are not. Most
gods are forgiving and broad-
minded; most state legislators
are not.
Twelve miles below Columbia, on a bluff overlooking the
Congaree Swamp, I was born,
Clearly I remember racing
through haystacks, over the
holy pastures green and blithe
with the confusion of youth.
The fields sang to us, and our
bodies ripened in the sun.
My only playmate was Fred,
a Negro, and nothing I cared
about the color of his skin. He
was as young and free as I, and
every moment was merry.
Then,  one day, my visiting
Auntie, an enormous woman
who smeared lipstick on her
forehead when she smiled, saw
us drinking from the spring.
Wi th all the . . . affected dignity of a Southern lady, she informed me that Freddy was a
"nigger" and should never be
caught drinking from that
spring again. Freddy cowered
away dumbfoundedly. I was
abashed.
Auntie died two years later,
and both Freddy and I watched
the funeral less than a hundred
yards from the spring. There
I discovered suddenly not sorrow, but hatred. I wanted to
kick dirt in her embalmed face,
a face representative of all the
ignorance and superstitions of
generations past.
But Freddy cried, and all the
fears of his young, dark world
cried pity, not hatred. Now
Freddy is a part of the Korean
hillside, and he died for the
grace of people like Auntie.
But Auntie's temperament did
not die with her. Her stupidity
is reflected and echoed in every
Citizens' Council in the South
today.
This America is: Sing to me
of the sunlight of the human
spirit pouring through open
windows.
This the South is: Slur to me
your syllables of interposition.
This America is: Show, don't
dream to me of human dignity.
This the South is: Move to
the rear of the bus.
Letters to the Editor
Dreamy Profs?
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Last year several students,
myself included, participated
in activities which they sincerely believed would result
in the building of new dori-
tories within a short time. As
is well known, nothing has
come of them: nor as mattetrs
now stand, is anything likely
to come of them in the near
future. Naturally, those students who participated directly feel more than a little cheated as do those who were dependent on the planned housing.
Since the beginning of the
term, the student body has
levelled much criticism at the
provincial government for not
coming through with its part
of what was generally believed
to be a bargain: that is, for not
supplying the funds to alleviate the housing situation. Certainly, a large part of the fault
lies with the government and
its erratic policy, but there
is another aspect to it which
should be brought to the attention of the student body.
As representatives of the three
major housing facilities existing on campus, three students,
myself among them, were permitted to sit in on administration housing development committees last year, where the
plans for the new dormitories
were   discussed.
What we saw there might
conceivably do credit to the
faculty committee members as
a community of scholars (their
debating powers were unques
tionably established), but not
as a community of planners.
One had the feeling that, when
each meeting was over, nothing more concrete has been
accomplished than the splitting ot a committee into further factions. Almost inevitably, solutions that were reached were insecure compromises,
liable to be ammended in part
or in whole at the next meeting. To be sure, certain members, notably Dean Shrum,
chairman of the committee did
work hard and consistently
to get things done, but there
was altogether too much opposition of a sort that often bordered on the intuitive and unrealistic. Meanwhile, as thc
mectinge progressed, building
costs were rising and cutting
ever more deeply into thc expected provincial grant.
I do not question the administration's recognition of the
problem. However, 1 do question tlie disunity, fatcionalism,
and what sometimes amounted
to an evasion of the main issues of that problem by one
of its committee. Disunity
meant a waste of time, a waste
of time meant not only increasing costs, but also a trial of the
confidence and patience of the
government. And, although
some of the committee members felt that their interests
were suffering at the hands
of others, it was the interests
of those students seeking but
unable to obtain housing on
campus that really suffered.

(2) Just what connection has
Louis B. Mayer with MGM at

(3) Has he ever witnessed an
invitation into the "Royal Order of Moose," or perhaps even
the  "Loyal Order of  Moose?"
(4) How long has he been

(5) How long does he intend

Who is the writer of the new

and irresponsible style, and
•delights in superfluous obscenity.
Why was it printed?

AND GET IT
By TONY GAMBRILL
Most people will maintain
that there is no connection between the fact that last year's
campus magazines Raven and
Pique have not yet appeared
this term, and that Confidential
magazine has a circulation of
four million. Don't believe it.
BE REALISTIC
First, let's be realistic about
this infellectual kick that Raven goes on. Sure, it goes over
great at summer school in Mexico, between parties at the
Banff School of Fine Arts, or
for English 100 students who
have run out of conversation.
Pique with its sharp layout,
cheesecake, cartoons, and the
culture angle soft-pedalled, on
the other hand, came a little
closer to the Ordinary Joe. But
even then, Pique had to be subsidized financially and only
came out as a poor cross between Slipstick, Raven and Woman's Home Journal.
What the campus needs is a
good hard-hitting, fast-moving
magazine like Confidential, A
magazine that tells the little
man (and woman) what is going
on around him (or her).
So okay, it is just Flash on a
bigger budget, but it gets to the
people.    And look at the prob-j
lem this way, on the UBC cam!
pus the student is not only the
person who a publication wants
to get to but also thc guy whoj
is paving  indirectly to  be got!
at. j
The point is that Raven's intellectual fire should be confined to warming the austere
halls of the English department
and Pique should be eliminated
as barren, In their place we
would have "Gulp."
GLOSSY VILE RAG
Yes,  Gulp — the magazine
that bites off and swallows the
facts of campus life and then
chokes you; the magazine that j
will give your parents a rising'
sensation ir. ^eir throats when
they read  about  UBC.    I  can j
see it now.   It will he proclaimed as stark, real, you'll  never
want to believe it.    It will be
a glossy vile rag.
Lurking in the shadows on
the campus even now are the|
people who can make this literary dream come true. Black
sheep of the S.C.M., rebels!
from tlie Critics Circle, renegade Ubyssey staffers, underpaid grass hockey coaches —
these are the ranks from which
the editorial staff will come.
Suggestions for features already being channelled to me
indirectly in the form of poison
pen letters to the editor of the!
Totem, Regular items would
be Seducer of the Week, Common Campus Diseases, The Perfect Filch (a series on lifting
textbooks without getting
caught), Did You Break Up

There will be a flock of feature items including "Got Your

Student
Handbooks
On Sale
That indispensable little campus item, the UBC Student Directory, will go on sale Thursday.
Containing names, addresses
and phone numbers of every
UBC student, the Directory will
cost 25 cents, and will be on sale
in the Quad Thursday noon, and
at the AMS Office thereafter.
Editor Brad Crawford called
this year's Directory "the most
comprehensive and accurate
ever published at UBC."
Students who changed their
addresses during the Directory's
formative stages were given an
opportunity to change the addresses they gave during registration, Crawford said.
In addition, galley proofs were
read extra carefully by a team of
handpicked student volunteers,
he said.
Publication of the Directory
marks a forward step in student
publication history.
Formerly, the Directory and a
general information guidebook
about UBC were combined in
one volume, which appeared in
November.
This year, the Directory and
guidebook were published separately. The guidebook, which
appeared for the edification of
freshmen during registration
week, was entitled "Tuum Est
And All That," and featured
radically revised format and
content.
