AMS by-laws forbid the use
of siickers for campus publicity,
lished February 24.
The committee feels thai a
national organization of students is necessary but that
NFCUS is not at present fulfilling this purpose.
The alternatives before the
committee are to reform the
present structure or to recommend withdrawal. If withdrawal
appears to be the solution the
committee recognizes that a substitute probably in the form of
a conference of Student Council
presidents must be supplied.
If the committee recommends
withdrawal a motion to that
effect will be presented to the
student body at the spring general  meting.
The report is being held until
after elections because the committee does not wish :o have the
matter become a political issue.

About 1,000 Ubysseys wont up in smoke on. the main
mall Friday noon when a small group ol Agricultural students turnett arsonists.
The vile rags burned well.
Tight-lipped Aggies worked so efficiently that, despite
attempts of bystanders to salvage a few copies, the stack
was reduced  to ashes within minutes.
Spectators who tried to halt the cremation called it:
"a damned stupid thing to do.''
Aggie students hailed it as "the greatest thing since
Joan of Are."
Motive for the bonfire deluxe is unknown but one of
the arsonists, applying a flaming lighter to the stack ol
papers, was heard to mutter "this should help to sell tickets." Presumably a reference to the Farmer's Frolic held

The  Prince
At times when people deride journalese as being a cheap
art we are sorely tempted to, and sometimes do, point out to
them that such is definitely not the case. We never tire of
pointing with pride to such great journalists as G. B. Shaw,
Charles Dickens, or Ernest Hemingway. (Note, for instance
how Shaw was centennialized almost unto death this month.)
We would also like to bring to your attention one of the
master craftsmen of American journalism, someone to whom
we point with great pride as being, as Alistair Cooke called
him the Prince of Journalists. He is Henry Louis Mencken,
who died Sunday at the age of 75.
Mencken, the sage of Baltimore, was a true journalist and
a good one; he was interested always in the ordinary life
around him; and, as he said himself, he had the desire "to lay
in all the wordly wisdom of a police lieutenant, a bartender,
a shyster lawyer, and a midwife." He learned much, also, from
such people as Nietzsche, Macaulay, Ambrose Bierce and, his
favourite, George Bernard Shaw.
With a piercing invective writing style Mencken shocked
and terrorized all false idols barring what he believed to be
the way to truth and honesty; he stabbed at church people
("Puritanism—The haunting fear that someone, somewhere,
maybe happy"), at lawmakers ("Democracy is the theory that
the common people know what they want, and deserve to get
it good and hard"), and at businessmen ("The chief value of
money lies in the fact that one lives in a world in which it is
As for man and woman, Mencken has this to say: "Woman
always excells man in that sort of wisdom which comes from
experience. To be a woman is in itself a terrible experience,"
or "When women kiss it always reminds one of prize-fighters
shaking hands," or "Adultery is the application of democracy to
Need we say that the passing of Mencken is a tragedy?
Perhaps we could do no better than to quote the epitaph he
wrote for himself in 1921, and let him speak for himself: "If
after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have
thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your
eye at some homely girl."
TV's   Capabilities
Said James Abram Garfield to the students of his alma
mater, Williams College, over 80 years ago:
"Give me a log hut, with only a simple bench, Mark Hopkins on one end and I on the other, and you may have all the
buildings, apparatus, and libraries without him,"
These words from a man later to become president have
been paraphrased in prose and poetry throughout the ensuing
years. Oversimplified as they may be, they wrap up in a
wonderfully neat package one of the great facts of education—
a package useful at the moment to give perspective to the remarks by Robert Ii. Mullen on educational television quoted
on this page last week.
Educational television, as Mr. Mullen points out, can make
a contribution to the nation's school comparable to that of the
school bus: It can bring together pupils and teachmg, teaching
aids and apparatus not available to youngsters scattered about
in President Garfield's crossroads log huts. But will television,
live or from movie films eventually replace the teacher personally present in his classroom?
The answer lies in what James Garfield must have really
had in mind: discussion—the interplay of ideas, the questions
and answers, the friendly clash of opinions, which can bring
clarifying light into otherwise unsuspected dark corners and
sculpture hitherto misty and (informed thoughts.
That is something no technological marvel yet over the
horizon can supply—something no educational experience is
complete without.
1953-54  Editor Returns  To
Decry   Lack   Of   Humour
I say Stanley, what has happened to The Ubyssey's humour columns?
As an alumni who receives copies of your paper, sporadically interspersed among the
requests for funds from the alumni office, I would like to coin an original phrase and view
with alarm the current demise of humourous. . . alright, alright, you in the hack row . . .
columns which ATTEMPT to be humourous.
What happened to last year's
"My Dog Has Fleas," that scurrilous collection of gobbledy-
gook which the female editor of
one of the downtown weekend
magazines so aptly described
as "the dirty writing of small
boys on a barn wall"?
Notwithstanding, "My Dog
Has Fleas" was frequently, if
not consistently, funny. Whether, in this sense, "funny" is
the "ha-ha" funny or the "peculiar" funny, I cannot say,
leaving that for posterity and
Alade Akesode to judge.
Neverthehowever, the fact
remains, Mr. Beck, that you
are lacking something this
year. Jack Scott recently complimented you and your paper
on its "maturity of outlook."
I agree—on the editorial page
—but also suggest that you
must lighten this sometimes-
overwhelmingly serious tone
with (is there such a term?) a
"maturity of humour."
Much of the college newspaper's mania for criticism
should be manifested in the
most valuable type of humour:
satire—the most devastating
and effective method of criticism, destructive perhaps, but
nonetheless, criticism.
.. A student body or downtown
populace which will never be
mevad by the constantly-tilting-
at-wlndmills Ubyssey editorials
can be touched by satire.
At the risk of being one of
those party-poopers who ruins
a joke by pointing out its significance. I'd like to point out
that The Ubyssey's story on the
hiring of a Ubyssey Football
Editor was much more effec
tive and devastating criticism
of the downtown papers hiring
of same than any other form
of  criticism  could  have  been.
Easy, Stan boy—I'm not inducing you to water down the
excellent tone of serious editorial page discussions between
articulate students and interested faculty members which
you  have Introduced.
By all means encourage and
expand tliis: but the above can
be done with plenty of opportunity left for perhaps pseudo-
humorists (isn't this the place
to try even if one doesn't succeed?) to have a go at society
or any adjunct thereof which
tempts the humorist.
At Robert Her rick, no doubt
a Ubyssey Ian. said in 1648:
Gather ye roae-buds while ye

daily newspaper that worries
over news stories.

Editor,  The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
On Thursday, January 26,
members of the Faculty of Agriculture, by means of apple
sales, attractions to hold the
public eye, and general persuasiveness, raised a substantial amount of money in aid
of the Crippled Children's
Fund. We believe that their
endeavours should be commended, and we do so with
It is unfortunate, however,
that the admirable work effected yesterday should be tainted
by an incident perpetrated at
noon today by those same students. The incident to which
we refer is the willful and
malicious destruction of our
personal property, and of property of the AMS as a whole:
that is, the burning of large
numbers, indeed a large majority, of today's issue of The
The persons involved in this
deed were Agriculture students.
Two were recognized by us;
Al Hetenyi (Agriculture TIT)
and Lincoln Goberdhan (Agriculture  IV).  Our  intention   is
not to discriminate against
these two; if the other persons
were known to us, we would
have revealed their identities.
The cause of this deed is not
evident to us; but clear or not
clear, justified or unjustified
as that cause may have been, it
couldn't have merited this arrogant attempt at destruction of
the unalienable right of the
general membership of the
AMS to read said newspaper.
Freedom of the press should
not be regarded lightly; nor
should offences against this
freedom pass unnoticed. We
therefore feel that those members of the Faculty of Agriculture guilty of this deed owe the
members of the AMS and the
Publications Board an apology
for their attempted suppression
of one of democracy's most
valuable  freedoms.

Yours truly,
Bill Baldwin.
Ames Again
On behalf of the Agriculture
Undergraduate Society, I would
like to apologize to the staff of
The Ubyssey, and the student
body for the burning of Friday, Jan. 27's edition of The
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
May I suggest to Michael
Ames: "Cast out the beam from
thine own eye." That is. I find
it hard to believe that anything, no matter how badly
written, >mh be as utterly obscure, trivial, and dull as the
Raven. The Raven may quote
"Nevermore" but it needs its
own advice better. If Ames
sleeps through "Methuselah"
what does he do when he reads
all the Raven manuscripts?
I thought the play was a
credit to UBC and that it was
entertaining. I also thought it
was well written. The most
beneficial and pleasing purpose of the Raven, on the other
hand, is as an amotic. The
flask for use while reading
the Raven would contain potassium cyanide to put the reader out of his misery.
Yours  truly,
Charles Dunham,
Arts I.

Rev. Bob Miller, travelling secretary for the Student Christian
He will discuss the existentialist philosophies of Nietzche,
Sartre, Camus and Kafka and
their validity as attacks on the
whole structure of orthodox religion.
"The justification of their attacks lies in their denouncement
of the existing superficiality
and unreality of present day
orthodox religion," states Rev.
Miller, who has spent three
years in Europe, studying in
Switzerland  and  Scotland.
This is Rev. Miller's third
year as travelling secretary for

from Newfoundland to Victoria.
His home is in Toronto.

New Treatment Methods
"Society is insisting more
than ever before on adequate
and humanitarian care for
mental patients," Dr. E. Mc-
Nair, Head of Essondale
Crease Clinic said Monday.
Speaking    on    "Recent
Trends in Treatment" in Arts
100 on Monday, Dr. McNair
emphasized that today a mental patient is cured by making
him aware of his own problem, then "helping him come
to grips with his problem of
Integrating with society."
"There is no such thing as
psychotherapy In pill form,
or we would be using it today," Dr. McNair said.
"We have come a long way
since the 18th century in psychiatric treatment of mental
patients," said Dr. McNair.
In those early times a jail,
unused room or closet was the
accepted cure for mental disorders.

Dr. McNair said that the

!     Dr. Myron M. Weaver, Dean
| of  UBC's  Faculty  of  Medicine
| for the past six years, resigned
Monday. The Board of Governors has accepted his resignation
Swith "very deep regret", President N. A. M. MacKenzie said.'
Dr. Weaver has been seriously ill and while he has made a
satisfactory recovery, he feels
| the responsibility which goes
; with the office of dean of the
I Medical Faculty, too heavy a
, load.
Dr. Rocke Robertson, head of
I the Department of Surgery, will
carry on until a new  Dean is
appointed. Dr.  Weaver will remain a teaching member of the
i staff. i
! In announcing Dr. Weaver's
resignation, President N. A. M.
MacKenzie said he had made
"an unusually fine contribution
to the medical faculty, to the
University and to the community in difficult and demanding
circumstances, and all of us owe
him a great debt for the part
he has played in the organizing
of our medical school and in
medical education in B.C. and
throughout Canada."
Born in Detroit, Michigan,
Dr. Weaver received his Ph.D. (
in physiology in 1929 and his!
M.D. in 1932 from the Univer-.
sity of Chicago. Until 1941 he?
was Director of research rela-;
tions for Eli Lilly and Company '•
of Indianapolis; he joined the!
staff of the Minnesota Medical
School in 1942 and in 1944 was;
appointed assistant dean.
Dr. Weaver is an associate of,
the American College of Physi-;
cians and a diplomate of the
American Board of Internal
Medicine and a member of sev-1
eral other scientific bodies. His.
clinical interests lie in the!
fields of diabetes and nutrition!
and his non-clinical specialty in j
medical economics. ,
In August 1954, Dr.- Weaver;
was one of three Canadians to!
address the First World Con-;

There is no shortage of
parking space available to
students at UBC.
This conclusion has been
reached by a subsidiary committee of the President's Development Committee in consultation with the Buildings
and Grounds Department, the
Comptroller's Office, and the
University Endowment Lands.
It has been estimated that
3,800 cars arrive on the campus each day. This figure is
gross in that it Includes student traffic leaving and returning to the campus during
the day.
By 8:30 a.m. each weekday
approximately 1,460 cars have
arrived on campus. The student cars comprising this
total occupy about 65% of
the student parking facilities.
At capacity the student
parking lots will hold 2,050
cars. Since there is a steady
flow of outgoing traffic after
10:30 a.m., these accommoda*
tions should be sufficient.
To handle future traffic increases the few spaces remaining in the main building
area are being developed. After these are occupied, further
space will be supplied south
of the University Boulevard.
Since finances are insufficient for surfacing the lots (it
costs approximately $60 per
car), the present method of
gravelling the areas will have
to be continued.

The Italian literature collection of the University of B.C.'s
library has been greatly increased by funds donated by
Vancouver's Italian community.
Considerable interest has been
aroused by the formation of a
new department at the university
—Romance Studies. One of the
major changes is the inauguration of Italian courses next fall.
Mr. Ralph W. Baldner, an
instructor in the present department of French, and who will
be giving the new Italian
courses, is now giving a series
on "Art, Music and Letters of
Italian Renaissance" at the Vancouver Art Gallery and at the
university. Mr. Baldner's lectures in the Art Gallery, held
every Wednesday at 8 p.m.,
continue until Feb. 29.
Highlight of the university's
presentations in Italian culture
this season will be lectures by
Frank de Bellis of San Francisco.
Mr. de Ballis will lecture on "A
Survey of Italian Keyboard
Music" at the Vancouver Art
Gallery on Wednesday, Feb. 22
at 8:30 p.m.
The following day, Mr. de
Bellis will lecture to students
and public in Physics 200, UBC
campus at 12:30 p.m. Miss Beatrice Delaney, concert pianist

Building and Grounds, Alumni
Executive, Housing, Public Relations, Radio and Television,
and a host of other minor committee meetings the AMS Presi
dent is again the sole representative of the students.
These meetings average about
ten a week, said Bray, plus time
spent as a member of Men's
Athletic Council and at various
social events.
"An ideal AMS President
candidate would be one with
some previous experience in
AMS activities, preferably as a
Student Council member," Bray
"He should have some qualities of leadership and the ability
; to   delegate   his   authority   pro*
! perly and see that the job was
carried out," the present President felt.  "And definitely good
I judgment and a fair amount of
commonsense," he added.
USC Head Needs Ability
"A good USC Chairman
should have administrative ability," said present incumbent
Dave Hemphill. "He must conduct numerous meetings in an
orderly fashion so that the
greatest amount of business possible, can be accomplished within the short space of a noon
Among the committees the
USC President must chair are
the Investigations, Charity, Elections and Discrimination. He
and his committee must act as
sole liasons between the undergraduate societies and Student
It is the USC President's responsibility to co-ordinate these
societies' activities.
The Secretary of the AMS
Society must be a junior or 8*\
senior, states the Constitution.
j Present Secretary Helen Mc-
! Lean would add to this require-
i ment that she or he (although
i tradition calls for a coed) "must
! have shorthand."
Secretary's Duties Many
Secretary's duties call for endless taking down of minutes,
and keeping copies of all incoming and outgoing correspondence. "Without shorthand the
secretary is left stranded, without a chance to put her two
bits worth in any discussion,"
Helen said.
With the Treasurer, the AMS
Secretary acts as one of two
signing officers, and numerous
cheques add themselves to her
other chores. "She must put in
an average of ten hours a week
in the office as well as tine
regular Council meeting Monday night," Helen said.
