Ubyssey Reveals Art Hoax

LOCAL SCIONS OF CRITICISM started an investigation   after   they ; discovered    this
painting hoax — into their own consciences.    David JBromige tells all.

Student Court Hears Charges
In Brock Painting Affair
Prosecuting and Defence Lawyers agreed Thursday that the "case of the missing picture
was no more than the intent to create a prank."
Final  judgement   on   charges
"I've often heard of the work
of Norbraksak," cooed a schoolteacher. "I'd love to hang her
"Prime Minister" in my recreation room." But the name "Norbraksak" had never been heard
of before.
Clearly this woman was one
of those Hill had hoped to expose. And was the judgement of
the Western Art Circle unclouded by emotion? This group
call themselves "representational" painters; their art bears a
certain similarity to that encountered on Christmas cards
and in Travel brochures. Granted the execution of the Norbraksak paintings was somewhat shoddy, the content and
the treatment thereof was undeniably   interesting.
'tween classes
laid by Student Discipline Committee against David Robertson,
Arts Three, and Kerry Feltham,
Arts Two, will be handed down
by Student Court next Thursday.
The two accused, both temporarily resigned members of
the Ubyssey editorial staff, are
charged with "conduct unbecoming to a University student."
Charges were laid under Bylaw 10, Section Four of the
AMS Constitution.
Charges Were laid following
the discovery Feb. 5 by three
Student Council members of a
$405 picture, "The Island" in
the apartment of Feltham and
Robertson.
The picture had been reported
missing since November 12.
Prosecutor McCrossan quoted
scriptions of the "prank" differed in their summing-up.
Prosecutor McGrossan quoted
John Stewart Mill's statement
that "everyone has liberty to do
what he pleases to do without
encroaching on t h e rights of
other people."
McCrossan stated that Robertson and Feltham in "delaying
to return the picture" after
"they had known other people
were involved" were "putting
their own 'self-interest' " first.
He asked the five-man court
to find the accused "guilty  as
charged."
Defence Counsel Giles argued
that the "prank" was in the
"best traditions" of both Ubyssey and other student "jokes."
He cited the case of a former
Ubyssey editor who kidnapped
a Saskatchewan co-ed from a
Canadian University Press Conference at Saskatoon for three
days, driving her in his car to
the coast.
He also told the Court that
had the Students' Safety Committee succeeded in their "plan"
to kidnap Students' Council before a General Meeting last
autumn the "AMS would have
been put to just as much embarrassment."
Counsel Giles said the accused were "merely trying to
live up to traditions of Ubyssey
editors."
The seven-hour Student Court
hearing saw 11 witnesses called
by Defence and Prosecuting
Counsels including six members
of Students' Council.
Four Counsellors, Chuck Connaghan, Pete Meekison Jim
Horseman and Bob Ward were
called by t h e Prosecution in
their attempts to "find the accused guilty of unbecoming conduct in embarrassing the Council, the Insurance Company, the
RCMP and the general community at large."
Two Counsellors, Bill Ballan-
tyne and Don Shore, 'were
called by the Defence who stated their "purpose was to show
the picture was taken, why it
was taken and why it was kept
so long."
Counsellor Ballantyne stated
that he had "conflicting loyalties in the case."
He testified that he knew of
the existence of the picture in
the apartment of the accused
since last December, and while
thinking the removal was "a
prank" had urged Robertson
and Feltham to return it.
Robertson and Feltham
named 11 UBC students as
"having seen" or "having been
told of the whereabouts of the
picture"   since  November   12th.
Student Justices Ben Trevino,
Grant McDonald, Laurie Peers,
Gordie Armstrong and Rod Do-
bell will make written judgements on the case over the
weekend.
The Court will meet Monday
to discuss the case and hand
down judgement next Thursday.
Six student councillors
left for Victoria this morning lo hear Education
Minister Peterson's explanation of the budget to the
House.
By  DAVID BROMIGE
(Ubyssey Literary Editor)
Some said they were painted by his three-year-old
daughter.
Others suggested Fred Hill himself was the artist.
They were all wrong.
Only th»ee people knew who was the real author of the
j paintings hanging in the lobby of the York theatre: Fred Hill;
I "Madame Norbraksak," of course — and myself.
The master-mind behind the
affair, publicized in Monday's
"Sun", was Hill himself; Hill,
whom ex - campus personality
Norman Young, now of London's
Mermaid Theatre, has called
"The only man to become a
living legend in his own time."
(Young loved redundancies).
The publicity man linked the
showing with the opening of
Little Theatre's "Matchmaker";
the art patron's sincere desire
was to expose, not to "hoax":
but to expose the kind of person
who either "hates" or "adores"
one style of painting to the exclusion of all others, without
being able to give any but the
most spurious reasons as a basis
for these pronouncements.
What were his methods?
REGAL SHERRY
For six weeks prior to this
exhibition, Hill kept plied with
I Regal Sherry and tempera block
' an exotic creature whose correct
identity is known to me bu t who,
for reasons of her own, wishes
to be known only as "Miss Y"
(It was feared the appelation
"Miss X," used in conversation,
might lead to misunderstandings.)
Using "Norbraksak" as her
brush-name, she daubed some
dozen canvases with bright
blues, ^eds, and yellows; outlined in black. These were the
pictures which hung in the York
last Saturday.
What part did I play?
When Fred Hill informed me
that the Canadian premiere of
the Norbraksak paintings was to
be held at the York, I recalled
his reputation as newsworthy
publicity man, and decided to
investigate further.
WEST END
Tracing to a West End apartment his Volkswagen, easily
recognizable by the garish
"Matchmaker" poster on the
back, I confronted both Hill and
his protege, and, loosening the
latter's tongue with the former's
vino, learned the whole story.
But I had a problem. This
was the night before the exhibition was due to start, and we
would not be going to press
until next Friday (today). To
scoop an exclusive for Ubyssey
readers, I would have to sit on
this news the next day. .This I
did. And With interesting results.
"If this is not a hoax, these
paintings should never have
been* hung," said R. D. Buchanan, of the Western Art Circle.
But I remembered that Miss Y's
work had hung in London.

A  New  Shi bboleth
Letters to the editor and other gauges
of campfus opinion reveal these days an
alarming uniformity.
They say, "Let us stop chasing the
almighty dollar," and "In these days of the
reign of Madison Avenue," and "The Organization Man is sick," and "We all know that
the provincial government thinks roads are
more important than people."
We have, in short, a new creed, anti-
materialism.
But this consistently harmonious chorus
constantly rising from the undergraduate —
and graduate — body rings a little false.
Like most beliefs that get accepted by a large
group of people, Christianity and Commu
nism included, once the fight to establish
them is over they tend to become hollow.
Their strength drained away from within
by constant repetition and lack of tests to
meet, they become shibboleths, slogans, lullabies to the tune of which we sleep while all
sorts of things utterly contrary to the slogans
go on surreptiously behind the happy
droning.
What action does our creed entail?
When a starvation budget comes down, what
is our action? We send five students to
Victoria who hope that they will be able to
have dinner with Mr. Peterson, the Minister
of Education.
Our creed would seem to be one of
large  words   and  tiny   deeds.

"Slanted Journalism"
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your issue of February 10th
contained a prize specimen of
modern "slanted journalism,"
well worthy of inclusion in a
high-school type scrapbook on
that subject. It was entitled,
"The Navy Goes to Church." I
hope it was.meant to-be funny;
otherwise it serves to indicate
that you are indeed, as you
have said, short of competent
staff. I should like, if you will
•permit me, to examine it here,
point by point.
I <juote: "This (the church

called "Church "Sunday" or

Foolish boy—the best way to make a bottle

wards things military). "It's
very democratic too — each
year they go to a different
church in the University area."
(Does he expect all naval eadets
to belong to one denomination,
or to go to all the churches
every year?) There follows a
little more tripe not worth ^-dissecting; then: 'fEach of the 60
(UNTD members) get $3.50 for
two hours' "work"- . ." For
100% attendance, the parade
must Obviously be compulsory;
to be compulsory, it must
equally obviously be a paid
one. (A "parade", for the benefit of this man's evidently deficient store of -knowledge, is
in this sense merely an organized assembly).
The taxpayer whom this
writer Champions, pays about
$25,000,000 apieee for the destroyer escorts which are presently hitting the water with
some regularity; and the new
submarines will set him back
somewhat more. Surely $210.00
is a comparatively small allocation to the edification of
those who may have to operate
them, even if some may doubt
the extent of its effect.
When a writer of that gentleman's ealibre gets hold of a
topic he wants to present with
a slant, but about which he
knows little relevant fact, the
result is usually at least interesting; this little gem, however,
was merely foolish.
The Ubyssey, hotbed of cynicism!

Not the Case at UBC
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Philip Wylie has described
American colleges as "athletic
clubs where some extra curri-
cular reading- is required."
Apparently this is not the
case at UBC. The Thunderbird
Booster Club calls this "a disgrace." If people want to devote their time to throwing
balls around, it is their concern, and we can only look
upon this with indifference. If
some students wish to devote
their time to encouraging this
activity, that is also their concern.
We have only a limited time
to devote to recreational acti-
vi. How we devote this time
is our concern alone, and is
most decidedly not the concern
of the Thunderbird Booster
Club- If we do not choose to
spend our time in accordance
with this group's wishes, this is
not "a disgrace."
We think this group would
do well to re-examine the reasons for which they came to
University.
Yours truly,

DAVID ANDERSON ,
Fourth-year Arts student,
David Anderson, a former Student Councillor at Victoria College, has displayed great enthusiasm and hard work in a
wide variety of campus activities. Active in the Debating
Union and Mock Parliament,
Dave is also a memjber of the

the Parachute Club of Canada.
I feel his varied interests and
experience fit him admirably
for the job of UCC President.

DAVE  BRISTQW
After leaving Burnaby North,
where he was editor of the
school paper and annual, Dave
has concentrated on academic
and athletic endeavors during
his four years at UBC. He now
wishes to direct some of the
talent and energy, to working
for the student body in the capacity of President of UCC.
We who nominated Dave
Bristow urge you to support him
in his drive to create a more
functional UCC, truly representative of its member clubs.

years has been a member of
Fort Camp Council, being president for one year. He was a
member of the Second Great
Trek Blitz committee, and the
oganizer of the highly successful Springfield fund campaign.
This year he has been on Council as chairmjan of the Undergraduate Socieities Committee.
I urge you to vote Pete Haskins
for vice-President next Wednesday.

BILL; MCALLISTER- Seconder
STAN MADER
I hereby second the nomination of Stan Mader for the position of Vice - President of the
Alma Mater Society. Stan, a law
student of high scholastic standing, has held a number of positions — PRO and President of
I.F.C., activities chairman of
Mardi Gras, member of Open
House Committee — giving him
the experience required to qualify for this office. But even
more important Stan is very
sincere, consciencous, and extremely hard working which
should logically make him your
choice for Vice-President.

It is with full confidence in
his ability that I second John
Madden for Students' Council.
An honours students, John has
been active both in athletics and
campus affairs. Last summer, he
rowed with the UBC crew at
the British Empire Games in
Cardiff, Wales; during the school
year 1957-58, John worked on

RICH SCARDINA
Experience is the primary requirement for a person holding
the position of Executive Member. Rich Scardina not only has
the experience, but has the interest, ability and determination
to do a good job. Rich, this year
is manager of the college shop
and has done an exceptional job
in this capacity. The administration of, the College shop is
the executive member's prime
responsibility and to this end
Rich has. some definate ideas on
how to improve the present
facilities. On Wednesday, Rich
Scardina deserves your vote for
Executive Member.

DARRELL ROBERTS
When you consider Darrell
Roberts for the position of UCC
Chairman, particularly note his
most outstanding attribute—his
devotion to any job he under
takes. During .his years on campus he has avoided taking on a
multiplicity of tasks in order to
concentrate on doing several
jobs well. As President of
Mussoc in his 2nd year and
Acadia Camp President in Third
year, he achieved much co-operation through his enthusiasm.
Therefore, Roberts is the man
for UCC Chairman.

that he is ably suited for the

a knowledge of current club

For these reasons I recommend Harvey Smith to you ; as
your candidate for UCC President. BOB SMALL
RUSS BRINK
I am pleased to nominate
Russ Brink for the position of
co-ordinator on students' council. Russ has the wide background of experience in campus
activities for this job. In the
past year Russ served on the
NFCUS national executive and
as local chairman. He was PRO
for the Club's Committee and. a
mem|ber of the Homecoming and-
Student Government committees. Russ was also a member
of the student delegation that-
met the provincial cabinet last
year. I recommend Russ Brink
as the man with the time, experience and enthusiasm to do
a fine job of co-ordinating our
student activities and managing
Brock Hall.
DICK   RICHARDS

LARRY LAING
It is a pleasure to nominate
for office someone who is qualified for the position.
Larry Laing!s experience
qualifies him for the position of
Coordinator. He is the treasurer
of the Grad Class, but will be
back for postgraduate work in
economics. He is a member of
the UlSC Committee investigating representative government.
He is a member of USC. He is
acting vice-president of AUS,
and a member of Frosh Orientation Committee, and has served
as Chairman of Farmer's Frolic,
a major campus event.
It is easy then, to ask you to
vote for Larry Laing for Coordinator of Student's  Council.

TO KNOW
execution? Man, we want to dig
life, not death.
I   had   been   reading   Camus,
The Stranger, and thought I had
an   answer.   Death   is   the   last
thing in life we can't dig. That's
what  gives  it  that morbid fascination.   The   hero   of   Camus'
story had milked life for what
it   was   worth,   and   now   there
was only death. He had  killed
a man and now he was waiting
for his own execution. He hoped
that it would be a nice day, that
there  would  be  a  huge   crowd
of spectators,  that  they   would
greet him  with  howls and  execration. He remembered a story
that  his mother had  told  him,
about his father going to see a
murderer   executed.   The   mere
thought   of   it   had   turned   his
stomach, but he saw it through,
and   when   he   came   home   he
was violently sick. "At the time
I found  my father's  conduct
rather   disgusting.   But   now   I
understood;   it  was   so   natural.
How had I  failed to recognize
that nothing was more important   than   an    execution;   that,
viewed   from   one   angle,   it   is
the   only  thing- that  can  genuinely interest a man. And I decided that, if I ever got out of
jail, I'd attend every execution
that took place."
Here's an execution that
shouldn't be missed. Camus, as
a matter of fact, has approved
of the movie, finds it esthetically
satisfying.
It is well done. A mood is
established right at the outset,
with the titling^ and the subtle
jazz accompaniment, and the
stark black and white. The
mood remains appropriate as
the story unfolds in its straightforward way — there are no
flashbacks. Occasionally the
drama is heightened by unusual
photography. It never becomes
melodrama. The style is semi-
documentary. We are not shown
anything about the murder of
Mrs. Malone. Barbara is tried
and convicted by the normal
processes of the law. We are
shown something of the power
of the press to wield public
opinion. Public opinion, fortunately, is not seen to wield the
processes of the law.
Susan Hayward may have
lost a few battles with the director about what lines to leave
in or take out, but for the most
part she handles the awkward
role of Barbara Graham competently enough. Lesser leads
are well done, and the gangsters are in the best tradition
of American gangsterhood.
Newspaperman Ed Montgomery
remains somewhat inscrutable,
as he should.
Next time you get the death-
wish, why don't you see this,
and be fulfilled? Man, that's
living!

TONIGHT
Swimmers
Go Against
Washington
By TONY MORRISON
In swimming, UBC's Thunderbird Team will make their first
home appearance this season
against the powerful University
of Washington varsity squad at
7:30 on Saturday evening.
When the Birds meet the University of Washington, they will
be out to revenge a 64-22 loss
suffered last weekend in Seattle.
TOP TEN
Ranked among the top ten in
the United States, the Huskies
have great depth in practically
every event. Team captain Harold Tauschep holds all school
records in the breastroke and
he is ably backed up by free-
stylers Pat Murata, Steve Lindsay, and Jim Wantanabe, to
name a few.
UBC's best chances lie with
divers Pete Pellatt and Ken
Doolan. Co-captain Pellatt
copped the one meter board
event last weekend and should
figure prominently again on
Saturday evening.
The Thunderbirds' other co-
captain, Ernie Berno, along
with Craig Campbell will be
strong threats in the spring freestyle races. Trail, B.C.'s Berno
has been swimming under 25
seconds for 50 - yards while
Campbell has particularly impressed Coach Pete Lusztig by
taking over top spot in^ the 100-
yard freestyle event.
STARTS AT 7:30
Starting time for the dual
meet on Saturday evening is
7:30 p.m. and the place is Crystal Pool.
VOLLEYBALL
GAME TODAY
Friday afternoon, the UBC
Men's Volleyball team will be
playing the University of Washington in  an   exhibition  game.
The game will be played
starting at 4:30 p.m. in the
Merniorial Gym.

PIRATES, SAVAGES
By TED SMITH
Tonight and tomorrow will give the UBC Thunderbirds a
chance to change their position in the Evergreen Conference
standings, when they take on two of the top teams in the conference. »
Tonight it will be fourth place Whitworth sporting a S-3
record and then on Saturday it will be second place Eastern
with a 5-1 record.
WAYNE OSBORNE
Leading the attack for Whitworth will be the league leading
scorer, sophombre Ray Washburn. This 6'2" sharp shooter
has been averaging 23.5 points
per game. He and 6'8" centre
Al Rolf will give UBC rebound-
ers much competition on the
backboards.
SATURDAY NIGHT
Saturday, the Birds play Eastern in their toughest home game
yet. Eastern's well-balanced
scoring attack is led by guard
Dick Koford and forward Kent
Matheson who each have averaged close to 13 points per game.
If the Birds can approach the
47% shooting average they had
in the game against Westmount
last Thursday they may give
both of these teams a good
battle. In past games Norris
Martin and Wayne Osborne
have been taking down a lot of
rebounds for the UBC squad. If
they can keep this up against
the much taller opposition this
weekend the Birds will be.baek
in the conference race.
GOOD   CROWD
Last week with 100 people in
the stands the Birds shot an
average of 29%, the following
day with 1500 supporters looking on the Birds shot 47 % ."This
means if-a good crowd is on
hand for these two. games the
Birds stand an excellent chance
of taking both games.
