crept int.*) Tuesday's edition of
The  Ubyssey.
A front page story quoted Dr.
Norman MacKenzie a* saying student tees would be reduced.
The university president probably wishes he could have said that
but In this case he only promised
that he would recommend such a
reduction to the next meeting of
the Board of Governors.
Dr. MacKenzie made the promise to Student Council Monday
night., He a>lso said he would be
surprised if such a decrease would
equal the recent *)30 Increase.

Mourning Widespread
For Dr. Max Cameron
Campus leaders today expressed deep regret over the loss
of Dr. Cameron, head of the UBC Department of Education,
whose sudden death Saturday shocked the entire campus.
On behalf of his colleagues, Dr.'"^"~ ~ ~~~
Chant  said,  "Dr.  Cameron
was a
man of high standing and promise
in the field of education. His
breadth of viewpoint and willingness to challenge his own views
contributed greatly to the inspiration of his teachings."
"One of the most highly regarded
und best liked members of the faculty, he was willing.to serve ln
any way which would contribute to
the Interest o<f the university at
"The loss will he deeply felt,
both as a friend and member of
the faculty."
Said President N. A. M. MacKenzie, "The university has suffered a great loss."
"Dr. Cameron was an unusually
fine and well qualified colleague.
He took a personal Interest In stu-
lents and had a great many friends
imong the graduates who are In
'.he teaching profession."
H. N. McCorkindale, superin-
endant of the school board, states
"the passing of Dr. Cameron
eaves a great vacancy In the per-
onnel of those responsible for education In this province. This vac
mcy iit the moment sci'tiw impossible to fill."

Two other plans are under consideration, a* large plan which
would provide for the representation of every undergraduate society on the campus, and the small
plan which provide for representatives of three of the undergraduate societies.
Both plans include an external
affairs oricer representing NFCUS and ISS and an elected public relations officer rather'than an
appointed PRO. The USC chairman would remain pro status quo.
If the large plan were adopted
presidents of the 11 undergraduate societies would act as representatives, and the junior and sophomore members would be dropped. This would give the council
a total of 23 members.
The small plan would include
only  16  members.

Lyon To Ask For Reps
On Faculty Committee
Fort Camp students' executive is. "up in arms" over the
universtiy housing administration's new impositions.
'On top ot everything else, they are now charging us 50
dollars a month rent for our canteen," exclaimed Fort Camp
president Bob Gourly as he complained bitterly to Vaughn
Lyon, AMS president.
In order to solve some of the
problems, Students Council has
asked for student representation
on the Administration's Housing
In I'dditlon to the canteen rental,
the Fort Camp residents, are aUo
complaining over deposit system,
the price of accommodation, and
the poor facilities provided.
Lyon's letter to the Board of
Governors states "Frequently, differences are based upon a lack of
knowledge of the reasons behind
the Committee's actions .... We
ask that four students .... be allowed to sit on this committee.
"This would ensure greater attention being paid to the student
point of view .... and would remove us from our present position
of having to question policies' after
they have already gone into effect."
Residents at Fort Camp feel that
they should not have to pay the
■same rates as those living ln tho
luxurious women's dormitories. At
present they must pay 151 a month,
a deposit of $25, and a $10 caution
fat.i ^.. .    ^.    ,    ,v_. tv. ^iiti
If a student moves out before the
end of the term he loses his deposit. The caution money is returned less charges for breakages.
The girls living in the women's
dorms must pay their room and
hoard ln advance for the period until Christmas.
"I can hear the guy next door
llipping the pages of his book,"
complained one fort camp resident.
"The walls are three-ply boards,
paper thin, with the two-by-fours
showing through."
"There Is one light hanging from
the celling in each room. Some of
the boys wanted Indirect lighting,
so they turned the shade upside
down," he said.
He also said that there are no
wastebaskets, base plugs, facilities
for drying clothes, places to entertain- girl friends (except the canteen), or kitchens to make coffee
in the huts.
There are four showers and six,
basins in each hut. (Each hut accomodates 74 hoys.) Boys complain that the mattresses are too
small and sag In the middle. Also

next Thursday, Oct.   11.
This promises to ho one of
the most Important cultural
events In UBC history.
Ranked among,the top three

this English quartot was formed of four students at the
Royal Academy of Music iu

Sidney driller. Other members
of the quartet arc .lack O'Brien,
Philip Burton and Colin Hampton.

Is very high aud resulted In
their being chosen to stay   at
the lOdlnburgh Festival two
years ago, where they created
a "sensation."
At present, the quartet is

of California.
Students are fortunate to be
able to hear "the drillers" as
they rarely go on tour. On tho
present trip, this will Im the
only concert given beside tho
one for the Women's Musical
Club on  Wednesday.
They have recorded on I I'M
and London records, and two
of the three quartets they will
play here can be found on London    L.l'.s.

of works they enjoy playing
most and which they have con
sidered best. It Includes Mozart's Adagio and Fugue in C
minor, one of Haydn's finest
quartets and Arthur Bliss'
Quartet no. 2.

A Wise Decision
Student council has wisely rejected both
plans for revision of the AMS constitution.
The plans, one of which would add three
undergraduate presidents and an external
affairs officer to the council, the other of
Which would add 11 undergraduate presidents and the external affairs officer, could
result only in a cumbersome council susceptible to "pressure grouping" from all sides.
Government by pressure group has
never worked anywhere and councillors are
Well aware of the dangers involved'.
Moreover, undergraduate societies are,
by and large, groups which really represent
only a handful of students who have a particular interest in the affairs of the faculty to
which they happen to belong.
Most students are far more interested in
one or more of the 70-odd clubs on the campus aud it is within these groups that real
strength of the AMS lies.
Council, of course, is far from perfect.
Councillors are overworked and, as President Vaughn Lyon says, it is next to impossible to introduce any new plans because no
councillor has time to take on additional
Monday night, councillors voted to "reallocate" the duties of members in tiie hope of
spreading the burden mom evenly. Even this,
however, is unlikely to provide any effective
remedy for the problem.
The Ubyssey. is inclined to favor thf
establishment of a sort of "organizations
assembly" to which every group on the campus would have the right to name a member.
Such a group would* be an effective
sounding board for student opinion.
It could, further, have such authority as
council saw fit to delegate to it.
The advantage of such a group, of course,
is that within its ranks there is bound to be
an organization with the facilities to undertaken any student project conceivable.
A Step To Better Living
The request of Students' Council for representation on the Administration's Jffouping
Committee comes as the first concrete step
in scdving the resident student's many bitter
complaints oyer their accommodation.
Some of these complaints have complete
Justification in view of the fact that the Committee is expending a great deal of money on
such schemes as the permanent renting of
huts to organized groups.
Some of the other complaints cannot be
solved so readily since they would involve
costs greater than there is money available.
Granted that the committee is doing its
best and takes the interests of the students at
heart, but how can it know what these interests are unless told so by the residents?
How can the students know why the
Committee fails to make improvements, unless told what its problems are?
How can the committee know how to
spend its money so as to please thc maximum
number, unless it can get the majority opinion of the students?
Fort Camp, Acadia Camp, tbe Women's
Dorms—each have organizations that would
be pleased to send representatives to the
Housing Committee and to take back to their
groups the reasons for the committee's decisions.
The students would also feel that they
are taking a direct part in the improvement
of their own facilities, and would be less
prone to launch bitter attacks at administration policy.
It would seem that the administration
should welcome representation on their
Housing Committee as a step not only to improve relations with'the resident students,
but also lo save money on useless expenditures that please no one.
Student participation in the running of
this university has always led to desirable results. There is no reason why the Housing
Committee should be an exception.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
it is with extreme regret that I
write to Ubyssey. It is even with a
greater regret 'that I have to use
this means of exposing the conditions by which the universities
of Csnadft ride rough shod over
some of their students, Ahd it is
with an equal regret that many of
us ponder why. we live in such
distressing times without achieving
some, sort of sense of dignity, of
justice, of well being in our hum&n
it le regretable for ue to consider
that sometimes our sense of superiority, of pride, of general misunderstanding blinds us to an extent that we fail to see tbe plight
of others wound us. It must aleo
be taken into consideration that
when I use the word "plight" I do
not imply sympathy for people v(ho
a-re ridden rough shod but rather
for, those who spur others and for
the society in which we live. Por
we must consider there can never
be harmony nor a well being
amongst the members ot a society
If we pay little heed to those clamoring tor some sense of fair play,
of the right or privilege to get together and discuss, our problems
without resorting to means that
pulls our society asunder. Consider
how much more effective our sense
of propriety would be if we lowered the scaffold of our lofty Intel'
leetuai perch to the level at which
we can discern the masses squirming in a mire ot our own making.
So enough of preliminaries.
Consider the exam In Zoo 304 of
December, lftBt). Consider how En-
glishly it was constructed for tbe
students that when two-thirds of
the class failed, it prompted the
lecturer to get Into a> red hot rage
and harangue the class because
they could not read English. Consider its expressive contents, nam*
ely, "Describe the type ot move*
ments concommlttent with gastru
lation in a vertebrate, illustrating
your remarks by reference to the
chick". Then consider what did the
Critic on the Hearth
John Brockington
Hats off to a gentleman! We almost have
an orchestra.
William *, Steinberg who conducted the
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in its first
concert of the season deserves nothing but
credit for last Sunday's performance. When
one considers the amount of rehearsal time
allotted to him and the inevitable seasonal
personnel changes, the most interesting of
which are the introduction of Jean de Riman-
oczy replacing Albert Steinberg as concert-
master and of Audrey Piggott replacing Barton Frank as principal cellist, the unanimity
of the orchestra's playing, the finesse of
string phrasing (especially in Schubert's fifth
Symphony), nnd tho entire aggregation's alert
response to Mr. Steinberg's sensitive and gentlemanly direction was really quite amazing.
Here was no excess of gesture, no grandly
mannered attempt to inveigle an audience.
We were delighted by purely aural means.
Thank-you Mr. Steinberg.
Let us not however think that this concert was anything more than a successful
debut. There are many things yet to be done.
Happily, Mr. Steinberg has raised the woodwind choir on a platform, allowing them to be
more easily heard and not, as is customary,
to be drowned in a large wash of excessively
vibrating string tone. Intonation troubles are
still plaguing thc winds and brasses, especial
ly the oboes, and that beautiful duet between
flute and bassoon in the Largo movement of
Beethoven's C minor Piano Concerto was to
say the least inadequate, due to the almost
inaudible playing of the first bassoon. But we
still have eleven concerts to go gentlemen.
Claudio Arrau, soloist in the Beethoven
third Piano Concerto, left no doubt as to his
formidable pianistic equipment but to me his
powers as an interpreter of Beethoven have
yet to be proved. His was a performance of
many convincing momeats but little overall
formal conception. I felt it too fussy as to
detail with a consequent neglect of architectural grandeur and forward drive. The slow
movement was intensely personal and quite
beautiful but too intimate in mood for one of
Beethoven's most universally profound and
eloquent statements. To paraphrase from
Virgil Thomson's discussion of sincerity in
music, Mr. Arrau was "dramatizing that
which should be transmitted directly."
For the next concert, as a gracious gesture to the Royal Visit, the VSO has programmed Delius' Brigg Fair and Britton's Sea
Interludes. It is to be hoped that the music
of Delius will not only be confined to gracious gestures, for the creations of this great
Englishman are as deserving as any of permanent affection from both public and performer. I hope that you, as I, will be there, j

Recent incidents growing
more frequent throughout the
North American campus community indicate an Intention
to undermine the very nature
of "Varsity," once so firmly established over the last 25 years.
The high priests of the men's
fashion industry have decreed
that the traditional racoon
coat must go, and so all the
way down the line, from subordinate to insubordinate, the
word has spread.
Most blatant example of the
compliance with the dictates ot
from-on-hlgh 1b Eequlre Magazine. For years this magazine
has been the Bible of "shfrll"
and "shall note" for young
men aspiring to be properly
dressed at college. Countless
sweet, innocent, clean-living
youths have turned to Esquire
for guidance and Inspiration in
their attire.

him most! Esquire has let
him down. For the second successive year (to our limited
knowledge), the special college
edition has deliberately omitted a* coon coat from the wardrobe of the well-dressed 1951
undergraduate. There are tartan jackets, garish checks and
evening dinner jackets, but not
even a frayed, moth-eaten coon

The coon coat Is more than
just a garment of warmth und
comfort. It Is a symbol of happy, carefree college days, when
the cares of humanity, the problems of work and the expenses
of day-to-day living are expelled ln favour of campuslsm,
that world of its own.
Its practical character ©titers
when one la faced with the pro
blems of carrying heaters to
football gi-vmes in order to better combat the perfidious autumn weather.
Arise and rebel, then, at this
challenge to our very way of
life. Are we just slaves of fashion, or aro we Individualists,
with minds of our own.       II.H.
examiner want: one TYPE of movements? Or many types? Or several
movements so related that they
can be classed as a TYPE? Then
too, did he want the movements
occurring in the chick qr in the
vertebrates, generally, and Illustrated wherever possible by referring
to the chick? Whatever he wanted
could not be analyzed in the time
permitted, leave alone write the
answers, When two-thirds of the
class failed the exam it waa hardly
the time to harangue them for
not reading the English properly.
All I can say is there must be something rotten in that kind of English,        i
Consider too, the splendid strategy of informing the class—Zoo 304
Tuesday night, section, final lab
exam — that 75 per cent of the
exam will be on the embryology or
the pig and the remainder on that
of the chick. Consider how effective it will be for the class to fall
by having on the exam one-hour sec
tions of which one section has 2
questions, one on the chick, an
other on the frog, with the remaining section having 20 questions,
with only a sprinkling on the pig.
Lastly, consider the whole course, Embryology 304. In the calendar of-'50-61 it states on p. 182
that the course is "Comparative
Vertebrate Embryology." Then
consider the final exam of 1951,
It does not require much intelligence to find out that the examiner tested his, students on something he did not teach; with one
exception: question (1) and then
;he did not stress the embryology
of the reptile beyond the Initial
stages of the course.
Of course I faHed Zoo 304. Furthermore, I wrote a' letter to the
head of the Zoology Department
asking them to have the final paper
gone over with me because I felt
I could not pass any future exams
in that course unless I am shown
why my previous exams were inadequate to deserve a pass. My
request was completely Ignored.
So much for Zoo 304. In my final
letter next day I will deal with
other courses. In the meantime it
would be fit and proper to heatf
from other students how they have
become human misfits—-I use "misfits" with considerable experience
because one head of a department
—bless his psychology understanding, sympathetic soul—suggested
in mildest psychological terms that
I go and see a* psychiatrist after
I asked him to show me why my
assignment was inadequate to get
such a severe marking down—ln
the halls of learning throughout
Canada. Address your letters to the
undersigned. It is only when we
make our voices heard reinforced
with positive action that we can
help the members of'the faculty
metamorphose into a stage ln which
they will not only have a clearer
understanding of ••the problems of
the students and of the 'members
of our society but also they will take
positive ^teps without any fear to
help solve those problems.

Dear Sir:
Before becoming as critical-as
the editor did in "Culture on an
Empty Stomach", It would be best
to check on the facts. Both Acadia
and Fort Camp dining rooms are
open from 11:45 to 1 pjn. not from
12:45 to 1:30 as printed in the
Ubyssey. Thus students are able
to have lunch, and attend noon*
hour functions if they prefer not
to take bag lunches (something
I can sympathize with.)

Fall Meeting

At the parliamentary forum next
Tuesday the plans will he debated.
Roy North. PRO and Hill Neen,
USC, vvill he speaking for the large
and  small  plan  respectively.
Those who favor the council setup a*s it is think that their problems could be solved by a redistribution of duties. As It stands, the
Junior and Sophomore members
have little to do while the treasurer and co-ordinator are swamped.
AMS president Vaughn Lyon
says that the present council is
so overtaxed with routine work
that It does not have time to tackle
anything new.
The redistribution plan will probably be presented at a special
general meeting when the students
will have the opportunity to decide just what  is to be done.

N&w Executive
Takes ©var
The Campus CCF party
will continue to function despite the recent split in the
ranks caused by the resignation of the president, Bob Loos-
more; John Meyer and Manfred Schmid, executive members.
This was decided at a CCF meeting yesterday, when a temporary
executive was appointed to func
tion tor a month until club mem
hers become better acquainted
with one another.
Tiie executive includes Jean McNeely, who will act as president,
Roy Parkinson, Lawrence Lynd,
Ron Cheffins, Pat Thomas, Ron
Uutlf, Ed Zllke and Mr. Paris.
Tuesday, the Ubyssey reported
that the split was caused by CCF
support dt the Atlantic Pact, but in
a letter to this paper, Bob Loos-
more clarified the statement:
"The North Atlantic Treaty, cited as an example of the issues
from which the resignations arose,
Is rather an unfortunate choice;
the stand of opposition may be
taken not only by socialists, but
also y liberals, pacifists, Troksky-
ists and Stalinists.
"The resignations were caused
by a long series of CCF actions and
inactions which add up, in our
minds, to an approximation to the
policies of the Liberal Party."

Mster Society card photos
taken will be given to students
Friday, October 5 by Campbell
Studios on the oampus.
All those students who missed having their Identification
plotures taken during registration week are asked to appear

Photos on AMS cards are

Undergraduate* will eaoh
have one of the two plotures

As other examples of this attitude, Mr. Loosmore cites the CCF
stand on conscription, rearmament,
bhe handling of the railway strike
and its ubordination of principle
to the idea of "getting candidates
elected on any program."
"We cannot upport uch a policy"," the letter continues. "We also
object to the propensity of CCF
members ln general to follow leaders, either of the left or of the
right, and to entrust the guidance
of the party to professional politicians, rather than to think and act
for themselves.
"The CCF Party is thoroughly
committed to the administration of
party state-owned, and partly individually-owned. This being so, It
will find itself unable to act significantly differently frm the Liberal)
In reply to these accusations,
Jean McNeely, In another letter,
states that, "Democratic socialists
everywhere In the world are united
on one vital point—the defence of
democracy. We have been severe
critics of our democratic system . .
but because we have the belief that
there cannot be any completeness
about democracy without socialism
or any true socialism without democracy, we are as much concerned
about Its preservation as we are
about saving socialism.
"It is for this reason that the
CCF supports the Atlantic Pact.
We do not condone the dominance
of capitalism in the economies of
the democratic countries. But we
have to make a choice between
democracy with its potentialities
■and the undesirable alternative
threatening the world."
hundred and twenty new foreign
students have registered at the
University of California this semester.
This makes a total of 800 foreign
students on the campus, of whom
approimately one half live at In*
ternational House.
This fall has also seen an increased number of students from
Iratt a-nd Japan come to Berkeley,
as well as two Indonesian scholarship winners.
An increase program of actlvl
ties to make the foreign students
feel at home is being inaugurated
Aside from merely welcoming the
newcomers to the university, the
program Is Intended to "blend their
lives off campus and on campus."
Arrangements include discussion
groups, dancing, language tables,
coffee hours, music hours and Sunday suppers.
A survey of the cost of living for university students has
been carried out by the NFCUS Committee of UBC in conjunction with the present national campaign to combat high education costs.

While commercemen seem to be
the most affluent denizens of the
campus, engineers have the highest
summer work earnings.
Sixteen redshirts were questioned
and it was discovered that they
earn about $1,000 during the summer.
Artsmen are the most pessimistic group on the campus about being able to finish their courses,
since this sum constitutes an absolute maximum for them.
Cost of room and boafd for students living away from home range
from $350 to $600 per university
Apart from the survey of students already enrolled at UBC, the
NfcCUS also sent out questionnaires to high school graduates in
order to determine how many of
them would stay away from universities because of prohibitive

UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN — No Inter-varsity football
track, or fencing will be scheduled
here this year.
At present no footbull Is being

successful last year.

'tennis, followed by golf, basketball and hockey. February will be
the big month ln varsity sport, as
