Vol. XL
No. 51
one became unecessary Monday, when Education Minister Les Peterson unexpectedly
announced a $5,000,000 matching aid grant
to UBC. Parade pictured above was hastily
organized after the delivery Friday of Premier Bennett's budget speech which contained little mention of the University. One
group of students staged a mock burial of
Higher Education on the Main Mall; another burnt Premier Bennett in effigy. A plan
to stage a downtown protest parade next
Saturday was also squelched by news of the
new grant.

UBC Should 'Sfarf Now On

UBC should "start right now" on a publi c appeal for capital expansion funds, and should
continue it every year, in the opinion of Provincial Education Minister Les Peterson.

No longer tight-fisted,

The youthful Cabinet Minister
made t h e suggestion Monday
night in commenting on his surprise announcement of a $5,000,-
000 matching grant for capital
expansion for UBC.
"The University shouldn't wait
until 1958 to launch its Province-wide appeal to alumni and
industry,"   Mr.   Peterson   said.
"The new grant gives the University ample incentive to raise
money; alumni and industry
aren't giving enough at present," he said.
Administration olficals have
been  for months planning  the
fund drivej which is designed to
tie in with B.C.'s Centennial
Year Celebrations. Mr. Peterson
said the drive should be placed
on a continuing basis, since Corporate income tax deductions for
charitable donations are calculated on a non-cumlative basis.
Corporations can secure tax
exemption on up to five percent of their income through
charitable donations, but this arrangement is predicated on a
year-to-year oasis. The deduction
does not rise to ten percent if
' Ihe corporation waits two years

Trek Wins
After All
Higher education was "buried" Friday night, but "resurrected'' Monday, as the Provincial Government announced
plans for a $5,000,000 matching grant to UBC.
Mr. Peterson credited the Great Trek Committee when
interviewed. "The student brief had a great deal to do with
our decision. It was an excellent brief, emphasizing the University's needs," he said.
In the surprise announcement, made Monday afternoon
in  the  Legislature   by   Minister   of  Education   Les   Peterson,
thc Provincial Government offered to match dollar for dollar   any   aniounl   up   to   85,000,000   that   UBC   could   raise
through public subscription.
In addition, the Government stipulated that anvthim<
in excess of $5,000,000 that UBC received from tho Federal
Government could be included in the 85,000,000 UBC must
raise to receive the full 85,000.000 from Victjria.
For example, if Ottawa gave UBC 86,000,000, the University would only have to raise $4,000,000 through public
subscription to receive the full $5,000,000 that Victoria has
It is unlikely, however, that the Federal Government
will give UBC anything in excess of $5,O0O,CO0. Probably,
UBC will receive only 84,300,000 from Ottawa as its share
on a population basis of the $50,000,000 that will be made
available to Canadian universities by the newly-formed
Canada Council.
News of the new grant knocked the props out from
under a scheme that was to be proposed at Council Monday ..„
night to stage a protest parade downtown next Saturady. It
also embarassed students who Friday night staged a mock
burial of higher education and burned Premier Bennett in
effigy after hearing that the Premier's budget speech contain*
ed little increased aid for UBC.
In the budget speech, Premier Bennettt seemingly ignored the demands set forth during the Great Trek campaign,
and instead dwelt on the responsibility of B.C. industry and
the Federal Government to provide for UBC's needs.
But the inference of things to come was evident:
"The Government is fully conscious of current expansion
needs, and progressively will consider carefully warranted
expansion proposals," he said.
Great Trek leaders were jubilant at the news. "We're
very happy we got this, and we're glad the Government understands our problems and is willing to help," said AMS
President Don Jabour.
Great Trek Committee Chairman and President-elect
Ben Trevino commented: "The Premier and the Government
have shown an awareness of our needs and the solution
they have suggested certainly seems feasible enough."

So now the Great Trek campaign is over. UBC has received almost as much as the Trekers requested, although
in a form which will require additional effort on the part
of the University, before the grant is received. In addition
to an $250,000 increase in UBC's yearly operating grant,
the Government has offered a five million dollar capital
grant on a matching basis with whatever UBC can raise
through public subscription and appeals to industry. The Administration has been planning an all-out public appeal for
the Centennial year anyway, and the new grant will, as Mr.
Peterson says, provide a powerful incentive, and a strong
bargaining point in any fund-raising campaign.
All that remains now to be done i.s to congratulate Social
Credit Government which has at last demonstrated its
awareness of the University's critical need.
And also, thanks to Ben Trevino and the Great Trek
Committee, who have achieved something that will reflect
everlasting credit on the students of UBC.
Looking Backward
Mr. John Hamilton, the Tory MP who spoke on campus
Monday, must be regarded in Ottawa as something of a maverick. For unlike most of his Progressive-Conservative colleagues in Parliament, he insists on thinking and talking like
a Conservative. If more Progressive-Conservatives would
start talking and thinking as Mr. Hamilton does, the fortunes of Sir John A.'s party might take a decided upswing.
Mr. Hamilton, by implication, made it quite clear in his
speech and in an interview afterward, that he was opposed
on bedrock principle to the idea of big government. On the
subject of tax exemption for university students for instance, Mr. Hamilton showed his true colours. He didn't like
the idea, he said, because it could set the precedent of placing all sorts of groups in favoured tax positions, A sounder
solution, he felt, would be an overall rearrangement of dominion-provincial tax agreements, in which the Canada-wide
needs of higher education would be provided for. This sort
of an answer infers a number of attitudes, all of which could
be profitably adopted by the Progressive-Conservative party.
For one thing, it indicates a desire to seek broad-based
solutions which will stand the test of time, instead of relying on phoney giveaways which do little to cure the underlying cause of the trouble. For another, it reveals a fundamental unwillingness to extend the boundaries of governmental influence beyond the logical limits imposed by the
legitimate needs of individuals in a complex society.
At the Progressive-Conservative nominating convention
in December, a'platform was adopted which parroted every
Liberal measure of social legislation, and added a good
many more. Now, as far as we know, the expansion of
governmental influence was never part of the conservative
creed. Conservatives traditionally stand for less, not more
government, for a number of very good reasons. The Party
that is supposed to represent conservatism in Canada seemingly chucked its principles at the convention, and committed itself to a giveaway program which it is doubtful could
be delivered, even if the Conservatives won the election.
We can't think that the people of Canada are anxious
to rush headlong into the welfare state. We suggest that an
honest advocacy of the principles which once made the Conservative party great could   make  it  great  once  again.
Little Orphan Annie:
A Capitalist Tool?
We begin to believe that the
men who produce the country's
comic strips, already acclaimed
in some quarters as serious
artists, are bent on making still
greater contributions to American culture. The recent trend,
if trend it is, began with Mr.
Al Capp, the creator of "Li'l
Abner," who turned up at the
Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, D.C., on February 7, to
deliver an address on modern
Unhindered in his discourse
by anything so burdensome as
knowledge, Mr. Capp was very
quick to arrive at his essential
point: that modern art is the
"revelation o f disordered
minds." The genuine art created today," ne went on, "is the
art of the auto ads, the fashion
magazines, and the comic
A few days after Mr. Capp's
address   we   had   occasion   to
light a fire and, finding no Pic-
assos on hand for kindling, we
made furtive use, and blush to
admit it, of the Sunday comics
section for that purpose, and
so discovered, quite by accident, that still another panel
artist has taken a flyer into
realms of speculative thought.
The strip that caught our eye
was Mr. Harold Gray's creation, "Little Orphan Annie."
Mr. Gray's discourse, presented in the manner of a philosophic dialogue between
Annie and another little girl,
concerned itself with economic
questions; specifically, the income tax. Annie opens the
discussion with a remark that a
third character, named Cousin
Steve, "must be worth millions!"
All th' relatives say se—
He does make a let, con-
traetin' and all — but my
paw says he bets he can't
keep much —
replies the other    little    girl,
and then . . .
Well, he's gotta square
Uncle Whiskers — Incoms
Tax,  that  is —  my  paw-
says th'   Gov'ment   grabs
nine  bucks  out  o'   every
ten in Steve's class —
she adds, by way of explanation.
Annie is flabbergasted:
Wow!    That's legal?
she    exclaims,    incredulously.
Yes, Annie, it's quite legal.
There are some psychologists
who    believe    that    sadistic
comics may exert sufficient influence on children to incline
them to deeds of violence.
If they are correct in their
general theory of the effect of
comics on the young, it will be
interesting to see what happens
when today's children, trained
in Poujadlsme by Little Orphan Annie, attain to the age
of reason and a taxable income.

examples of other nations in
which the minority group has

entire governmental machinery

were admittedly amused to
learn of the incident of the
"Mary dresses:" A group of
fanatical young women invaded the leading clothing shops
of the East, demanded to see
the inventory on hand, and
awarded a precious few the
label of "Mary Dress" (this is
defined as a dress Mary would
wear, which in turn is defined
the  modern equivalent of an
oversize sack). As a result of     of public order and the pro-
public ridicule, the official sanction was withdrawn, but the
point at issue is that arbitrary
and dogmatic censorship upon
human activity remains with
What are the present manifestations of such activity? 1)
the forced withdrawal of a
showing of "Martin Luther" by
a Chicago television station. 2)
the oublic banning of "Baby
Doll" while exhibitions bordering on pure pornography remain unmolested. 3) the banning of the dissemination of
birth control legislation in Massachusetts. 4) the moral blind
spot of many of our public officials—as witness Mayor Wagner's beaming acceptance of a
hero medal from the Franco
government and his subsequent
condemnation of the "immorality" of Saud.

the crisis over "Baby Doll"
reached its height and was the
primary subject of conversation and debate among the citizens of New York, only one
paper of that city even recognized the existence of controversy by any form o feditor-

The rabbits will feed on rats
from a neighbouring farm.
If we start with 10,000 rats,

Education II. Tuesday, February 26, 1057
At last night's AMS meeting
Students' Council:—
• 1. Rtstraintd Joy when
news of the government grant
came through minutes before
the meeting started. After
councillors had finished congratulating each .other and
making plans for celebrations,
President Don Jabour asked,
"Should we pass a motion approving or receiving this?"
• 2. Announced that selection of students for all those
auxiliary positions for which
applications have been received will take place in two
• 3. Referred a revolutionary   new   concept   in    student
housing to the Housing Committee. The idea involves
UBC renting houses in West
Point Grey and then renting
them out to students to be run
on a co-operative basis.
• 4. Drafttd a letter of
thanks to all students and staff
connected with the organization of the Academic Symposium.
• S. Struck a new commit*
tee to investigate the feasibility
of some form of representative
government on campus.
• 6. Potted notice that election of the referendum-approv-
d Executive Member will take
place in two weeks, on Wednesday, March 13.
• 7. Discussed the controversial proposed bowling alleys to be built by the administration. Councillor Ben Trevino drafted a motion requesting
the administration reconsider
the construction of the alleys.
In view of the forthcoming
capital gifts drive, he felt "adverse publicity might result."
The motion went on to ask that
if possible the money (which
would come from trust funds
and be with revenue from the
alleys) be used for more basic
needs. One of the "more basic
needs" mentioned was student
housing. Objection to the timing and wording of the motion
was expressed by several councillors and the subject was
tabled for the duration.
'Girl Crazy' Sparkles
With Gershwin Tunes
Although one of the more difficult musical comedys to stage
because it requires five scenery changes in one Act, "Girl
Crazy" is nevertheless one of the best efforts Mussoc has put
on in the past few years.
It is a sparkling comedy by Jv
George and Ira Gershwin about
a young playboy sent by his
father to Arizona in order to
fet him away from the fast
life of New York, who turns
the tables by converting h i s
cattle ranch into a Dude Ranch
and bringing the fast life to Arizona. The show features some
cf the more popular Gershwin
tunes such as "I Got Rhythm",
' Embraceable You" and "I'm
Bidin' My Time."
Both choruses perform well,
the edge going to the mens'
which contains many veterans
from last year. Their "Lonesome
Cowboy" and "I'm Bidin' My
Time," are two of the best done
ensemble numbers of the show.
Snappy dialogue and good timing by the cast keeps the show
moving at a gay clip.
Singing assignments are creditably handled by John Northey
whose acting has greatly improved over last year and Shirley Muir. Miss Muir smiles too j
much in the l'irst Act, but this j
minor defect is compensated by
her singing ability. !
Particularly outstanding is
Bill Rose as the string-bean
cowboy whose "Lonesome Cow-1
"co>" number starts the show on
its way. Miles Hacking is excellent as Lank, the villian and his
deep bellow dominates the stage
whenever he is on it. Fast-talking Barry Cramer turns in a
fiood performance as Geeber the
Kew York cabbie and his elec- i
tion scene with Lank should
bring the house down. Walter
Shynkarik is very effective as
Sam Mason, the New York sharpie. '•
"Girl Crazy" will be on all |
this week in the Auditorium and j
tickets may be obtained for
fcoth student nights and public ,
iughts at the AMS or from any '
Mussoc member.

Teaching methods, freshmen, orientation, and future bul

Large-scale plans for a reappraisal of the academic!
at UBC came from the first, annual weekend symposium
Vancouver Island Saturday and Sunday.

"intimacy" of the campus has
steadily deteriorated since the
deluge of veterans after the second world war. Professor Reed
pointed to various ways of bringing back the close student-staff
relationship that is so valuable
in learning.. These included
joint common rooms and an extended advisory system.

Optimism was expressed by
President N. A. M. MacKenzie
Saturday in an informal talk to
students at the Academic Symposium concerning Provincial
aid to the University.
Tht President's optimism
was confirmed Monday when
Minister of Education Lei Peterson announced a matching
gant plan which will possibly
add 10 million dollars to the
University's capital expansion
program.   See story page 1.
•Without being a Polyanna, I
am very happy by what happened in the budget speech" he
"I was glad that the government found it possible to increase the operational grants
even to a modest extent because
it is important that the Provincial Government recognizes its
responsibilities for the main operating services within the University."
"The University is not the
concern of only the students and
faculty; it is a provincial responsibility."
He  added wryly:  "After we
develop    the    Rocky Mountain
Trench and so on and so forth, I
would like to see better development of residences "
Dr. Geor/roy Davies, Executive Assistant to the President,
said Monday he felt that the
Premier had indicated that he
was willing to meet with the
representatives of the University to discuss their needs.
"The excellent approach made
by the students is no doubt a
contributory factor in this," he
"In addition to the contributions the government made to
basic services of the University,
we will do everything we can to
get additional funds from Industry, the Federal Government
and the general public, particularly the alumni."

Intellectual Zeal
Lacking - Corbett
"UBC students are rushing into a rut."
That's the considered opinion of Political Science Professor
David Corbett, who mourned the lack of intellectual enthusiasm at UBC in a panel discussion at the Academic Symposium
Saturday morning.

Intellectual Responsibility Seen As
Underlying Theme Of Symposium
[For anyone who considers
nself something of an intellect
an experience of the nature
^the Academic Symposium can
more than a little disconcert-
It can bring sharply into focus
difference   between   honest
Itellectuality  and  social  vitu-
itioh; the disparity between j
ught and ego-coddling.

lothing could be less super-
fus as a field of concern at
/ersity,   especially   this   uni-
rsjty, than an examination of
finions said to be acquired and
j held intellectually — for we are
a university split more than
most, I think, by inter-group
Nothing, of course, is a better
argument and bomb-dropping
than the frightening lack of individuality among members of
a group or society with rabidly-
held, rigidly-defined beliefs, but
the motivation of those who seek
refuge in these groups is perhaps an even better argument.
Morally, one of the least attractive of these groups, despite
the frequent appearance of ethical and intellectual comliness
of its individual members, is
that one whose members find
survival by debunking society as
a whole; who assume the role of
social critic to justify their nonconformity.
Certainly non-conformity in|
itself is far from reprehensible,
but when it is regarded as intellectually valid social criticism,
rather than a device of delivering that criticism, it is as non-
rational and unethical as the society it criticizes.
It is only logical that in evaluating a society that generally
holds soul-searching in the same
esteem as mixed public bathing,
there should exist no small amount of soul-searching on the
part of the examiner.
It is dubious, however, that
the realization of the frequent
confusion of intellectuality with
egotism is any better than the

Symposium delegates Sunday
morning heard Dr. Marshall
Cronyn speak on the intimacy of
student-faculty relations at Reed
General reaction of delegates
was that the system at Reed,
though nearly ideal, was largely
impractical at UBC due to the
greater size of its student body.
Several of the academic programs at Reed, however, were
thought to be of real and immediate value to UBC. These were:
* A unified, compulsory, liberal arts curriculum for freshmen and second year students;
* A program of student advisors;
* Closer inter-faculty relations.
The unified curriculum was
thought to be advantageous in
curbing the tendency toward
thinking of the university's main
function as that of a vocational
school, rather than an educational one.
By avoiding the necessity of
early specialization, it would
also avoid the student committing himself to a course of study
before he is sure that it is the
right one.
Student advisors would work
with the student, and help him
decide, on the basis of his grades,
upon the most suitable academic
The extension of student autonomy to include the honor system as it exists at Reed was not
thought possible.

courses, but never  venture into
fields not prescribed in thc Calender. "They   study   hard,"   he
| said, 'but not with taste."
|     "They  live the academic life
with   more   zeal   than   enough,
but  thc-y  don't lead   the  intellectual  life,"  he   said,  defining
j the intellectual life as "intellectual pursuits for their own sake."
But much of this intellectual
inactivity can be blamed on Vancouver,  which  is,   in   Dr.   Cor-
bett's words, a "frontier city."
"Vancouver needs restaurants
where students can eat their
meals and have their conversations."
"Soft lights, music, alcohol,
and beautiful women perhaps
ought to be there to stimulate
the intellectual life."
But there are some grounds
for hope. Vancouver as a cultural centre is improving. "Vancouver in 1939 was probably
tens times as intellectually boring as it Is today," Dr. Corbett
Perhaps the intellectual awakening will result from the coming influx of Hungarian students. Through their influence,

Friday's game was close for
most of the first twenty minutes, until St. Martin's started

the half.
The Birds spent the second

Only "old reliable" Jim Pollock was able to hit double figures  with  10 points.
Saturday, Jack Pomfret put
his Birds into a close-pressing,

in numerous interceptions, but,

22-21 lead after a low-scoring
first half.
In the second half, St. Martins started to hit, piling up a
47-40 lead early in the fourth
quarter. The Birds fought back
lo within one point but, despite
erratic passing and sloppy ball-
handling by the visitors, were
unable to regain the lead.
One of the few bright spots
of the wekend was Ken Wins-
