Guest Editorial
Holes In The Wool
The recent editorial entitled, ''More Facts Please" was
one of the best examples of sophistry I have read in a long
time. I would like to question the writer on some of his facts.
First of all, to what degree does he suppose fascist elements
exist in Hungary today, and exactly what does he mean by
a "fascist." Horthy, a right wing military dictator, seized
power when Hungary was in a state of chaos and anarchy
after Bela Kun's communist government had fallen in 1919,
but the existence of the dictatorship does not necessarily
mean that the mass of the people were fascist, nor does it
necessarily mean that there is a large fascist element in
Hungary today. He implies that Hungary willingly fought
on the side of the Nazis in tne last war; I suggest rather that
Horthy was coerced by threats of annexation to aid Germans,
and that the Hungarian people had no say in the matter.
Next, he insults the Hungarian people by implying that
American propaganda was the sole cause of the revolt.
Living under totalitarian (communist) dictatorship imposed
by a foreign power is a more powerful incentive to revolt
than propaganda, especially considering the fervent nationalism of the eastern European peoples. Does he think that the
factory workers who gave their lives were fascist? What does
he think of the Workers Council (Labour union leaders) who
are defiantly rejecting the demands of Kadar? What does
he think of the massive resistance of the people to the Russians and their puppet regime? What does he think of the
100,000 Hungarians who have fled their homeland? Fascists?
Finally he questions the number of arms in possession
of the patriots, placing squarely the grave consequences
of the rebellion upon the West. If news reports are reliable, most of these arms were handed over to them by Hungarian army units, others were captured, and perhaps some
had been cached at the end of World War II. He makes the
obvious suggestion that they were smuggled into Hungary.
But how9 The Red Air Force would have certainly prevented air drops. Hungary, an inland state, is bordered by
five states, fourof which are communist. Obviously, American arms could not be smuggled in via these countries; that,
therefore, leaves only neutral Austria. First of all, Austria
i.s also an inland state, making it rather difficult to gel arms
into Austria. Secondly any arms movements into Austria
would be a strict violation of Austrian neutrality, and would
bo ouickly noticed by Communist intelligence agents; the
world would have heard the raucous cries of the Kremlin
had this ever occurred. Austria, of course, would never jeopardize her independence by allowing any arms importation.
Finally, does he think that tho Russian army units are so
inept, that bonier installations are so lax, that arms could
be smuggled in? It might be well to remember that the
Communists are not amateurs, and thai Hungary was never
a "banana republic."
I suggest that Mr. Hodkinson arise from the depths of
his smug complacency to have another look at that woo! being
pulled over our eves; it has a lot of holes in it.
TrekThe Halls With
Today's edition of the Ubyssey, our fattest, our sassiest
our final issue for 195(1, is a unique venture in student publications  at  UBC.
The middle four pages of this edition have been devoted
entirely to accounts of the financial crisis facing this University, and of student efforts to persuade Provincial authorities
to grant UBC more money. Ten thousand extra copies of this
four-page "Great Trek" edition will bo run off, and distributee! throughout the Province where they will do the most
good; to service clubs, Boards of Trade, country newspaper
editors,   and   Provincial   Government   authorities.
We hope this extra run of '.he 'Vile Rag"—dressed in its
Sunday best for off-campus consumption-—will accomplish
something worthwhile.
And one more thing: we wish you all the best of luck
in your examinations, and a merry, hairy Christmas.
Apathy Surrounding
The Tory Convention
Slanted ?
Thc Ubyssey:
Since thc Leadership Conference, the Ubyssey has shown
some sinus of a change in several respects—changes which
are the direct result of our
discussions and recommendations.
Nonetheless, the most serious
charge—-admitted by the pubster at Elphinstone and in thc
Ubyssey subsequently (see your
issue of October 11, 1956)—
has not been tackled at all
seriously: the charge that reports  are   biased   and   slanted.
Your recent articles on Fort
and Acadia camps ''re all too
clear in tiiis respect, and I am
Mire that the Editor cannot
plead—-as ho so often docs—
that he could not check the
reports. For no one at this
University is—can be— unaware of the situation in the
If the Trek is to be aided
constructively by the Ubyssey.
then such articles as thc ones
you have published are most
damaging to this cause. Surely
your efforts would not be to
destroy what we have—admitted that this leaves much to be
desired and can be greatly
improved—but to lead the way
in showing how to expand our
housing, how to'meet the crisis.
Similarly, your "series" on
the Socreds seems childish. Do
we have to have all your dirty
private political washing
splashed over a full page of
paper'.' Granted Mr. Johnson
was iomewhat biased in his side
of the story— and not quite as
badly as vou have been in the
past—is this justification to
spend a whole editorial, complete with nauseating adjective.;, to make a few punny
points on your side'.' Never yet
has Ihe opposite happened, vein
just assume that your bias is
above reproach.
Nor, lo the best of my knowledge, has any letter to the
Ubyssey been given such treatment before. Why was this
made and exception? Because
it happens to be the Socreds
and you want to say things
about them'.'—and mind you,
1   am   no   Socred   member.
What you have done in other
sections of the paper—on the
basis of Elphinstone — you
should also do to your viewpoint. Cut out I lie el.'' 'ish
and harmful slanting; and v. ,en
you know that a cause can
suffer—be serious, be constructive.

Upon the shoulders of the man chosen at Ottawa next

the public just doesn't care what is going to happen.

has been little opportunity for the Canadian public to get

John Diefenbaker, and perhaps Sidney Smith.

V.'e realized wi'h no little
disconcertion a while ago that
we have not yet come out for
the Lottie Man. N'o one really
seems to know who the Little
Man is or what he really looks
like, yet he exerts an awesome
power, throwing politicians,
editors, and educators into
such paroxisms of social con-
sci'Hisnoss as to convince one
that the North American way
of lite must surely have been
instituted by Karl Marx, or
at least Upton Sinclair.
Enormous conlrivancss to
steal Ihe public blind have
In en .sold to iliat public in the
name of the Little Man; sensitive, intelligent, kindly men
have been dragged through
public infamy merely by being charged with defiance of
the Little Man. Who, we wonder, is the Little Man, and
what does he want'.'
He seems rather like God,
so completely omnipotent and
immune from investigation is
Not wishing to ally ourselves
with the vacillations of agnos-
licism, we have decided to
take an editorial stand on
him, and. further, alter meticulously scriitini/.ing our psyche, we have decided that
there is only one stand we can
honestly lake we are crazy
about  him.
To assert our unflagging sincerity in this stand, we further
decided to carry our devotion
to the next logical step —
namely, we are all for the
Littlest Man.
In all honesty we must admit that our decision to love
the Littlest Man was not that
blind exertion of faith that
will lead grown men to speak
publicly at political rallies.
No, we admit that our love
came about through cold deliberation and thorough examination of the Littlest Man's
qualities. After this process,
we can do nothing else than
blushingly confess our undying fealty to him.
For thc Littlest Man has
many estimable virtues; by
definition, in fact, his qualities
are the only qualities, and in
their purest form.
Not the least of these is the
thick, glossy coat of selflessness with which he hides the
bickering, grasping core of
self-interest that is so manifest
in the rest of the human race.
This coal is the coat of nonconformity. By wearing it, the
Littlest Man distinguishes
himself from the rest of the
world: because of this, he
draws fire from all those not
similarly attired. His antagonists, that is to say, everybody else, love him secretly
for his reaffirmation of tho
worth of the status quo, yet
try to dispose of that reaffirmation, to rob themselves of
their one source of contentment.
In the midst of all this ambiguity and cross purpose,
stand the Littlest Man, immaculate of conception: on the
surface,  rich, creamy misery;
inside, the consumate joy and
self-conceit of the martyr.
O Littlest Man,    you little
grafter,   we   love   three .   .   .
quick, quick, give us a stone
to thro^     too.

Her first stop
— the bank
When Mrs. Wilson planned to go shopping, her
husband Tom said: "Meet you at the bank."
It was a natural thing to say, for going to the
bank is just a part of everyday life.
In the bank, Mrs. Wilson noticed Miss Ellis
the schoolteacher . . . Mr. Cooper the storekeeper
. . . and her neighbour's son Bobby,
adding to his savings account.
When Tom arrived, he grinned:
"Seems like everybody goes to the
bank." It's true. Canadians find the
chartered banks such a safe and handy
place to keep money that practically
everybody has a bank account. There are
now more than 10 million deposit accounts
in thc chartered banks —more accounts
than there are adults in the country.

Just Study
In Library,
Stay Quiet
Student and Administration
officials are promoting their
own brand of "Police Action" to
keep noise down in the Library.
Officials are asking students
to "police" the Library themselves by simply telling noisy
students to be quiet.
"It's simple, really," said Library Committee Chairman Sandy Ross. "If your neighbour is
making too much noise, don't
be shy; just politely tell him to
shut up."
Similarly, it was pointed out,
students have every right to sit
down at an empty library space
—even if someone's books are
already parked there.
"Space is too scarce to permit
all-day parking," Ross said.
Assistant Librarian Sam Roth-
stein said Wednesday the noise
situation was unusually bad.
"I've worked in several university Libraries," he said, "and
none have been this bad."
"I guess it's just because it's
the thing to do," he added.

Great Trek' Drive Launched
In 1922 a small determined
band of UBC students succeeded in forcing the provincial
government to proceed with
the development of the much
needed Point Grey Campus.
This was tho first Great Trek.
Today, with the success oi
this original campaign as their
standard,* UBC students have
embarked   upon   the   "Second
Great Trek" attempt.
The campaign is a province-
wide plea for support in the
students' drive for provincial
aid. Plans circle around a
number of appeals.
First, a letter-writing campaign by out-of-town students
to friends and relatives and to
their MLA's pointing out the
over-crowded conditions and
the university's need for expansion.
Groups of volunteer students will circulate during the
Christmas holidays to obtain
signatures for petitions similar
to the ones presented to the
government in  1922.
If an audience in Victoria
is granted, a student delegation, armed with the petitions
and a brief giving concrete
facts and figures on needs, will
ask the government for a
$15,000,000 grant and the immediate receipt of ihe $10,-
000,000 Provincial grant mado
in 1954.
Student delegates will also
address groups of down-town
business men asking their support for the drive.
An all-out newspaper, radio
and television campaign is
planned to help acquaint the
people of B.C. wdth the desperate need of the university
for expansion.
One of the highlights of the
trek will he a "Squeeze Day"
programme .sometime in February. It will be a day-long
programme of student demonstrations underlining the need
for financial aid.
I n conjunction with
"Sque?ze Day," Acadia and
Fort Camp residents and stu
dents who were unable to receive housing accommodation,
will trek over to the proposed
dormitory sites and erect
tents and sleeping bags to
illustrate the acute shortage of
proper housing  facilities.
Ben Trevino, AMS Co-ordinator and Campaign Committee chairman, emphasized that
the need for funds is extremely acute. He said that "statistics show that with thc increased demand in business
and industry for university
trained help, the enrollment
at UBC i.s expected to double
itself within the next ten
Already, new wings for the
Library, Chemistry, Engineering, and Commerce buildings
are desperately needed; a preclinical Medical Sciences
Building is needed. In addition, if the money is granted,
it would mean the establishment of ihe new schools of
Music and Dentistry which
students now have to travel to
ihe United States or back East
Trevino added that "UBC
is not alone in their need: it
is a nationwide problem. We
hope that if we are successful
it will encourage other universities to follow our example."
The trek of 1922 was a big
success — "Tuum Est" for this

be knocking on the University's
doors by 1960.
Yet UBC is bursting at the
seams now. Housing and educational facilities are hopelessly overcrowded. Professors are
underpaid and moving to private industry. If not remedied
immediately the situation will
soon become hopeless.
Predicted enrollment increases
are the result of two main causes.
First, the increased birth rata
of the Second World War period
will bring a great many more
people into the university age
Secondly,   a   greater   number
of teenagers want to go to uni-
versity. And these young people
will be  needed to fill positions
in B.C.'s expanding economy.
This is why students at UBC
are bringing to the  attention
of the people of this province
the    urgent    need    for    more
funds—funds  to  help  us  fulfill adequately the purposes of
a  university.
UBC    IS:
• Overcrowded
• Inadequately   Financed
• Lacking Dormitories & Residences
• Expected to meet thc challenge of
a rapidly increasing enrollment
• With an Underpaid Faculty
This special edition of The Ubyssey tells how these
conditions have come about and why they must he remedied if the university is to serve the needs of the people
of our province. PAGE EIGHT

UBC President Reports
On Crisis In Universities
The  Reason  Why
The current first impression of a fund drive for UBC
is . . . "Why?" Citizens aware of the recent S10 million grant
from the Provincial Government and S4.3 from Ottawa feel
that the University i.s perhaps being greedy in immediately
asking for more.
Without considering some salient facts this criticism
would be valid. But a comparison of UBC's needs with money
we are to receive shows unmistakably that the campaign
is justified.
Both the Federal and Provincial Grants are spread over
a 10 year period. They will help meet rising administrative
ee-ts and operating expenses,  hut  they will  not  provide the
fund.-   to  con-hue!   the   building-   the   univer-;!y   de-peraloly

Editor's Nolo: The following
is an address by Ihe University
President, Dr. Norman A. M.
MacKenzie, deliverod over
CBC November 17, on the occasion of t he National Conference of Canadian Universities
in Ottawa. In it, Ihe President
discusses the grave crisis that
today faces Canadian Universities—including   UBC).
I am here at the Chateau
Laurier as a member ol' a conference on "The Crisis in Higher Education in Canada." With
me ire the heads and other
representatives of all our Universities from St. John's, Newfoundland  to  Vancouver.
Tim crisis—which I prefer
to call tht1 "challenge to the
Universities and people of Canada" grows out of three facts
or circumstances.
The first, the rapid increase
in cur population due to immigration and more particularly a hifjh birth rate, means
that each year the number of
young men and women demanding a university education is
increasing rapidly, and by 1956
our university student population will be more than double
its present size. This is a fact.
At th? same time the international situation and the stac
of oar own industrial and commercial development is such
that we will need—and do need
today— far more trained and
educated young men and women than we can possibly pass
through  our  Universities.
At the s.ame time, the general interest in higher education is increasing. There are
a! least '.) tunes as many good
young people with the intellectual capacity tor higher education than 'hero are presently
in oar L'tiivi r-atic, and it is
ahuo-t certain that in place

withour present income, are
small in the total picture or
statement of government expenditures.
At present for instance the
provincial grants to Universities comprise less than .V.' of
the total provincial expenditures, and less than 1-10 of
the expenditure on roads.
The expenditure of the Federal Government on defence i.s
very great—perhaps over 1:,.|
billions each year. Roads and
deefnre are necessary, and it
may he that we—the Universities—are not as important as
either ol the-:' (though the few
tens oi millions we will in-ed
are "pfvmuts" compared to tin
lumdr< ,'s of millions spent on
the.v other items). But if tha'
he the view of the Canadian
people, then they must accept
as a fact that their children
will no net a I nivwsity education and their industries,
selioo'-.. pr ifessions. businesses,
firmed forces, ar.d governments.
will not be supplied with the
neae -sary personnel.
I really mean that this
crisis wo face is too big for
the Universities alone and on
their own to handle or deal
with, as they have dealt with
other problems in the past. We
just can't alone, and on our
own, cope wiih it. Governments
and business must coir.e in and
help  us, and  help  us in  a  ser-
would come to nor aid and to
the aid of the Arts. Letters,
Humanities and Social Ccier.ccs,
in a generous fashion, He '.old
us thai the Federal grant-- to
Universities will be doubled.
He also told us that the Canada Council would be e.-ab-
lished and given fOO million
dollars to administer—50 millions by way of endowment for
the Arts, and 50 millions to be
distributed among the Universities to help with thiir capital
needs For these generous uifts
we are grateful beyond words'.
These monies will enable us
to enlarge cur services, to
strengthen and improve our
work, and generally to prepare
lo meet our difficult I'm ore
problems with courage ar.d a
rood heart, provided—and this
is of the utmost import ante—■
our provincial governments and
other sources of revenue do
not assume that their normal
and proper responsibilities to
Ihe Universities have been discharged, and fail to continue
and t.i increase the grants trade
us as these  become necessary.
If they do this—that i.s refuse or fail to continue t".cir

1922 Trekkers
Idea Borrowed
For New Drive '
A significant milestone in ihe history
of UBC was the famous ''Great Trek" ot
It i.s a similar spirit which is leading
students today to appeal to the people
of the province to support UBC in its campaign   for   more  money.
In 1922 a group of determined students, dissatisfied with the inadequate and
squalid conditions of the university, decided to take positive action to awaken public interest.
The university was then housed in what
was called the "Fairview Shacks" near
the Vancouver General Hospital.
Students planned for months a campaign to present truthfully and forcefully
ihe plight of the university.
Fire was a great hazard, facilities were
hopelessly inadequate and teacher's salaries were very low. In fact many professors
had threatened to resign if nothing was

Income, Expenditures
Reveal UBC's Status
Where docs it come from and where does it go? Students
at UBC, in their appeal to the Province for money for expansion, are asking thc question.
The total revnue received hy this university during the
fiscal year 195-1-5-1 is as follow.;:
Government of Canada
B. C. Provincial (h.v't.
Student Fei -
University  L*h-.b. a. 'o i
UBC Services :ua.l Rentals
Gifts, Grants, Endowment.-;
S   riH0.fi52.30
1.-155 5:11.0°)
Expenditures   for   the  same   year   were:
Education academic salaries, etc.
Administration and Non-academic
Fellowships.  Scholarships, Prizes
and Bursaries 197,611.94
Research 601.476.69
Au: biliary Enterprises 7,744.53
Miscellaneous 216,318.40
It is to he noted here that none of thc money received
has been used for expansion. It can be seen by these figures
that none could be spared from the tight budget.
Also worthy of remark is the fact that under Canada's j
constitution, the BNA Act of 1867. education is the respon-1
sibility of the Provincial Government.
The fathers of Confederation felt that provincial govern-j
menls could better decide what type of education their people !
want and need.
Yet the pit sent provincial government pays only ■ '<>' <
el UBC's annual expenditure. The government and people ot
B.C. must ask themselves if their responsibility is hoine, properly j
WHILE B.C.'s ROOMING economy has
boosted Provincial revenues and UBC enrollment to record heighls. UBC's share of
the Provincial revenue is dropping. Graph

First rale graduates can only
be trained by first ra'n instructors and underpaid faculty mem

to the lure of larger sak.des in

University administration officials won't release statistics,
but they make no secret of the
fact that they're worried about
the number of men lost to industry in the past three years.
Professors as a group, are dedicated men who believe firmly
in the intrinsic worth of educa
tion, and are willing to sacrifice
material rewards for the satisfaction of a worthwhile job well
Bui they do ask what President N. A. M. MacKenzie calls
"a necessary minimum" — enough to maintain their families
decently and to acquire some of
the material rewards lo which
their years of intensive study
and training should, entitle them.
When the "necessary minimum" can't be paid, and the gap
between professor's salary and
his worth to private industry
grows to several thousand dollars a year — more and more of

Mardi Gras Blitz On
We Go Wild For
Dystrophy Research
Mardi Gras Ticket "blitz"
is on.
This year Mardi Gras chairmen have selected muscular
dystrophy research as the recipient of the expected five thousand dollar profit, on the dance
ticket and raffle ticket sale.
Dr. William C. Gibson, head
of thc Neurological Research
Department of UBC's Medical
School, said, "Muscular dystrophy is a disease of the muscles
that slowly spreads over thc entire muscular system ending in
complete p'ralysis and death.
200.000 known cases have
been reported in the United
States. Over half of these
were children between the ages
of three and thirteen.
The word used there is
"were" because most of these
children are now dead. The
cause and therefore the cure of
muscular dystrophy are unknown to medical science and
the disease is almost 100 per
cent fatal for children although
a few survive to adult life.
Muscular dystrophy itself
does not kill people, but it
weakens the muscles until its
victim becomes susceptible to
other diseases such as pneumonia. Unable to cough or sneeze
he i.s in danger of death by suffocation.
Such a scheme would see a
team of six — doctors, medical
students and technicians —■
working exclusively on muscular dystrophy research.
Three students have already
been engaged in research here.
Kurt Ebner, an MA in animal
nutrition; Dan Frose, Med. 4
and George Tupling. Med. 3.
We have thc lull co-operation
of all known cases in Vancouver. As head of the Neurological Research muscular dystrophy research has a very
close connection with him and
bis department.
Research projects on muscular dystrophy, lasting from
three to live years, have already been approved by the
National Muscular Dystrophy
Association of Canada, Dr. Gibson said.
Heredity enters clearly into
only one out of three cases, Dr.

MAD To Question
Students By Mail
A Men's Athletic Directorate Committee investigating
UBC's unhealthy athletic situation will sound out student opinion by means of mailed questionnaires.
Eignt hundred questionnaires
will be mailed Friday to students selected at random from
the Student Directory. Students
in effect will be asked "What
improvements would you like
to see in UBC's athletic set up'.'"
Information gleaned from thc
questionnaires will form the basis for the Committee's recommendations for athletic reform
to the Men's Athletic Committee
after Christmas.

The   Committee,    headed   by j ;n Ottawa.
AMS   iack-of-all-trades   Stanley
Beck, was struck in late November by Men's Athletic Association.
Decision to conduct an "agonizing reappraisal" of UBC's athletic set up was taken after the
Fall Football series lost $1600
and minor sports budgets had
to be curtailed as a result.
Main areas of suggested improvement will probably fall
into three main fields, MAD
President Tom Toynbee said
1. How is a belter calibre of
athletic endeavour--mainly loot-
ball and basketball--to be attained'.'
2. How can spectator attendance  be  increased?
3. What administrative improvements can be made'.'
The committee will also com-
municale with athletic directorates at other universities, to compare notes on promotional and
administrative wrinkles in athletic management.
I      Purpose of this meet is to picl<

Threat In Ottawa
Social Credit, despite recent election gains in Provincial
elections, constitutes no threat in the Federal field, Tory MP
Donald Fleming told a cheering UBC audience Friday noon. I
The dynamic,   squat  buddha-,
like   candidate   for   the   leader-,
ship of the Progressive Conservative Party  told  an enthusiastic Arts 100 audience: "If Social
Credit   pretends   it's   the   only
alternative   to   the   Liberals.,
they're   talking    through   their
hats." i
The MP for Toronto Eglinton,
who   was   suspended   from   one
session of the House during last
summer's fiery Pipeline debate,1
accused    the    Speaker   of   the j
House, Rene Beaudoin, of 'de-i
basing his office to serve partis- J
an purposes of the Government."
Blasting the 'dictatorial" action of the Government in ramming the controversial Pipeline
Bill through the House, Fleming said: "The people must
choose between a government
that rations free speech according to its whims or a return to
democratic government."

Braves opened the scoring in
the second half as Ron Stewart
surprised the Tech forwards,
who were trying to put more
pressure on the UBC backs, by
carrying the ball from a lineout
instead of passing back to his
scrum-half. Stewart went ten
yards to score in the corner, and
Bell could not make good on the

Allardyce scored Braves' sixth

Up till that point it looked like

the Bird offence folded completely. Their shooting went
sour, their passes went astray,
and they lost all their poise and
confidence. While the helpless
Tnunderbirds floundered, Western poured it on to run up a
final score of 56-40.
In retrospect, however, the
Birds did not look like a championship team in either game.
Friday night Eilers gave them
a tough battle before bowing by
only five points.  If the Jewelers':
shooting had not been so poor in:
the first half, UBC would probably not have reached the finals.,
Only a 1'*' l-time switch in
strategy saved the Birds against
Filers' second half onslaught.1

As   il   was,   Ihe   game   was   in

sank two free throws with only;

In hotb games the Birds frequently seemed disorganized.
They weren't hitting from the

Ton soars ago. hardly tins homos in Canada had
stainless stool sinks. Bui a loss Canadian lnuf-es\ isos
tried thc uess sinks ami thought the> were wonderful
--wouldn't stain or chip, wore so easy to keep origin
and clean, and hosi o\' all. glasses and dishes thai
wore accidentally dropped didn't break as easily.
Thai was the beginning of a new and thriving
Canadian industry. Today, most o\' the new homes
being built in Canada have Canadian-made stainless
steel sinks. Anil pt\te!ieallv all oj these sinks contain
Ineo Nickel.
Ore from the mines near Sudburv. Ontario, is milled,
smehed and refined bv Inco here in Canada. Refined
nickel is sold to other ('.inauian companies to make
stainless steel. This stainless steel goes to ihe
Canadian firms that make the sinks. And Canadian
builders install them in the homes.
These operations -from the time the ore is mined
until thc finished sink is installed — provide jobs for
thousands of Canadian workmen. That's how Inco
Nickel helps promote the growth and development
of industry in Canada.
