No. 56
More To Athletics?
Fee Increase Mooted
By HANK HAWTHORN
Last night's Council meeting turned up several new ideas on the proposed fee increase
but no decision.
Most popular decision, and one that should meet with athletic approval, was a six dollar increase, with $2.50 slated for athletics. This would allow free 'A' cards for all students
-while assuring Athletics of at-~
I least $5.80 per student, including their present AMS grant.

STRONG   OPPOSITION
Strong opposition to the increase came from AMS President-elect Ben Trevino who felt
that "AMS is doing its worst
job of distribution (of money)

from every student for bnly five
participating
in athletics."
"With the increase," he pointed out, "we will be giving sixteen   percent  of the  monev  to

preeiathe of this support. However, it has never sought capital
funds.
"This is our first appeal to thc
public for capital funds." Dr.
MacKenzie said. "We believe
that business and industry have
some responsibility for the provision of student facilities, even
though the major burden should
and does fall on the provincial
and federal governments. Wc
hope business leaders of British

or university's athletic department operates on a budget al

defense of the increase he added
that "athletics pay dividends and
the rowing team brought us
$150,000 worth of publicity."
It seems highly probable the
increase will get Council's approval and a referendum will
be presented to the students two
weeks after thencxt meeting.

THE    UBYSSEY
Tuesday, March
Tweed Versus Beaver-Skin
Youth and Diefenbaker
The Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition strode
into UBC's Auditorium Friday, amid a figurative blaring of
trumpets and waving of palm branches, and issued his prophetic challenge to Young Canada. Love God, he thundered, and honor Country, and if you're an engineer, stay
right here in Canada. And Young Canada, despite a few
irreverant snickers, roared its approval of the Prophet's
dramatic revelations. Those who came to hear a political
speech, however, were bound to be disappointed. Mr. Diefenbaker was saving his political barbs for a downtown audience
later in the day; his purpose at UBC was simply to introduce
himself to young Canadians in Western Canada. For those
who listened to The Message, there was plenty to think
about. For those who hankered for something a little less
nebulous, there wa.s much less. Ergo Mr. Diefenbak'ei's visit
to UBC wa.s only a qualifiea success.
The Progressive-Conservative Party fondly calls itself
the Party of youth. In a way, Mr. Diefenbakcr's Friday
visit wa.s a test of the validity of that statement. Certainly,
a youthful, football-rally type of enthusiasm was rampant
when Mr. Diefenbaker inarched onto the stage. For young
Canada is vaguely anxious for a change, and if the Auditorium audience was typical, that anxiety was accurately reflected in the wild applause which the Opposition Leader received.
It is an old Government in Ottawa, and it i.s peopled by old
men and old inflexible ideas; many young Canadians are
heartily sick of it. When UBC students cheered for Diefenbaker, they were cheering for the man who claims he can
give political expression to the dissatisfaction that so many
youn Canadians feel.
But can he? Can the Progressive-Conservative Party
provide the alternative government that so many of us w*ant
and need? The Opposition Leader's performance over the
weekend provided no sure answer; the old doubts still remain. How, for instance, can the Tories equal the record
set by Lester Pearson in the Department of External Affairs?
Many would feel uneasy at the prospect of a Conservative
Government slavishly clinging to the coattails of some other
Eden all in the name of the Commonwealth. And are the
Conservatives really conservative? Doesn't the platform
adopted at the Nominating Convention in December smack
of political hooey, with less taxes, more giveaways and still
more promises, which couldn't possibly be kept? Isn't the
platform simply a come-on, designed to attract everyone,
and out-liberal the Liberals at the same  time?
In a word, can the Conservatives under Dielenbaker
produce? A great many Canadians, young ones in particular, are yearning for an affirmative answer to this question.
Whether or not Mr. Diefenbaker can convince Canada that
the answer i.s indeed ''yes" remains to be seen.
Hair On Our Chests
To those dewy-eyed ingenues who consider exposure to
UBC a civilizing influence, the article to the right, from the
Massachussets Institute of Technology ''Tech" is respectfully dedicated.
Critic's Circle and Academic Symposium not withstand-
ing, our campus is still "rod raw and uninhibited" to the
culture conscious ivy-shrouded easterner.
Maybe so. But in our own delense we'd like to point
out thai the President's memo of March 4, l!)4i), forbade the
discharge of firearms on campus between the hours of \) and
5 weekdays, and thai the last engineer with a tail was graduated in 1!).")2.
As lo the rumour that the Dean of Women i.s known lo
her intimates as "Klondike Dot" . . . no truth to il, sirs.
No truth at all.
But we heartily second the invitation of Carl Swanson
'(it) to the pale and sickh eastern undergraduate to come
i)iu\ lead the "Virile life among the raucous humanity ol
UBC "
Grab your traps and Muckinnws boys, and head out here
where men are free to follow their inclinations. You'll find
the registrar's office on the Main Mall above the Last Chance
Saloon.
But a word of advice on how to conduct yourself in
this raw northland. You're mostly free to follow your inclinations, but don't get caught robbing the President's beaver
traps.

A Real He-Man Campus

By CARL SWANSON    —   The MIT Tech
Occasionally when we of
MIT lift our sleep-weary eyes
from the glare of a fluorescent
lamp upon the pages of a book
which some professor has written for his own course, our caffeine-stoked brain notices some
flashes of lire revealing a college where life exists — a red,
raw uninhibitedly collegiate
life. Perhaps the rawest of
these schools represented by its
equally raw but excellent paper, The Ubyssey, is the University of British Columbia.
To compensate for the humiliation suffered by the freshman girls during' the hazing
period by their practice of de-
skirtsing and to show their true
idolization of the female, the
men of the University of B.C.
observe a co-ed day.
"Co-ed Day" the very name
suggests an Elsian world of
osier bodies, delicately poised
in obsequiousness: of fluttering, patrician supplications; of
girls, girls, girls; girls buying
and being bought, carrying and
being carried. Co-ed Day! Hoo
boy! For this is the day when
male superiority is finally and
gloriously recognized. Coeds
will comply with any masculine desire, without any of the
superfluous pouts and nioues
vvith which thev beg the issue

Letters
TO      THE      EDITOR
New Bus Line?
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Attention all frustrated campus motorists! All of us know
how throughout the past few
years campus parking has become a big problem. The available student parking space is
gradually being swallowed rip
by construction, and the setting
aside of designated areas for
parking  permit   holders.
Until recently, I accepted
these permit holders as necessary evils, who had priority
over a vast percentage of the
convenient parking locations.
I have now changed my
mind — those permit holders
(along with the Buildings and
Grounds Administration) are
plotting a scheme whereby
they will become principal
shareholders in the new campus bus line.
The buses will bo put inlo
operation alter all student motorists are forced to park outside the gates, thereby having
lo lake a  bus to classes.
The conclusion was arrived
at alter the latest area designation in front of the Home Economics Building, where choice
student parking space has now
been granted to "permit holders only" (who apparently
don't realize it. because now
there are no cars parking there
at all)".
However, the cinching factor
for   my   conclusion   is   the   presence of another sign which announces: "No parking South of
this  sign"   —  and  so   the   new
e campus   bus   line   has  acquired
thirty  more (plus their passengers)  potential  customers.
A.  EMERY,
Arts III.
asked, "What kind of goodies?"
The afternoon was climaxed by
the tea dance while the dance
in the evening concluded the
festivities.
UNIQUE PICTURES
The gleeful, fun-loving, its
great to be alive, virile but
good natured humor and attitude of the entire campus is
captured by the newspaper
with unusual pictures with
more unusual captions. An example of this is a picture of the
backsides of four co-eds kneeling over the back of a couch,
described by a unique caption:
"Tireless in its efforts to bring
its readers both sides of the
story, the Ubyssey here presents pictorial proof that Mardi
Gras Queen candidates have a
deep-seated desire to get ahead.
Ubyssey photographers, it
seems have a similar deep-seated desire to get behind the
headlines, down to the bottom
of things."
ENGINEERS VS. AGGIES
The U of BC seems to be continually engaged in some humorous activity, such as a recent
float race between the Engineers and the Agricultural College. "Tne Aggie's Cow" (one
of the floats), a lumbering ox,
built on the battle lines of a
battleship, was standing there,
patiently disgorging great
quantities of eggs, flour, and
rotten vegetables to eager Aggies and Foresters.
The Engineers tried to retaliate by throwing logs, a six by
six. and gas and oil over the
road. A member of the faculty forbade them from lighting the gas, and a crowd of Aggies stopped  them from  using
the logs. The race started in a
shower of debris as the Aggie
drivers pelted the Engineer
'horses'. The Engineers disintegrated when the Aggies started using natural, solid fertilizer. The Aggies won in a
walkaway."
SNOW BALLS FLY
The virility, joyousness and
unconcern of the students pervades the University sometime j
resulting in good natured, —
though perhaps foolish — riots.
Recently a spontaneous demonstration routed and ruined, at
the outset, a fund raising drive.
"Great Trek committee efforts
to get publicity for UBC's appeal for funds failed today as
snowballs ruined ceremonies
on Main Hall.
"The program called for former great trekker Aubrey Roberts to deliver a speech to start
things off. He had to run for
cover after he said about ten
words.
"Next event scheduled was
the hut-building contest between the Engineers and the
Foresters. The snowballs tore
the huts apart while they were
being built.
"The CBC television cameraman found it almost impossible
to get shots amid the flying
snowballs. A photographer
from the Sun had his camera
put out of action the same
way."
ARISE AND LEAVE
Arise men of MIT. Leave
these drab, pastel brown walls,
grueling hack work, and surmountable problems. Lead a
life of virile, lustful joy amid
the raucous humanity of that
most fascinating, most colorful
campus — the University of
British Columbia.
UK Praised As

By PRAVIN VAKTA
Every corner of Asia and
Africa, awake and resurgent,
struggles for expression, and
those who do not heed that
struggle have not understood
the most stupendous' revolution of our time. The freedom
of a people i.s no longer a cani-
moriity to be withheld al the
pleasure or for the profit of
the ruler, nor a prize to be. offered for good behaviour. A
new < lenient has entered the
intern.dional scone: the newly
awakened Asian and African.
His desiie to express himself in
hU own manner, and according
to hU own traditions, will not
be curbed, lie will assert himself occause his dignity demands it. He will declare his
freedom to walk proudly in
his o .\m continent with his head
held high because he believes
it is his simple and natural
ri.uhl t:> do so.
No power could suppress the
upsurge of nineteenth-century
nationalism in Europe1. No pow-
rr cm check the Asian and
African renaissance with their
struggle for self-expression,
both political and cultural. It
i.s only a question of time and
method. It is for the colonial
powers still in Asian Africa and
in Europe to decide whether
their withdrawal should be
peaceful, leading to a fresh relationship of equality and mutual benefit with their erstwhile dependent territories, or
whether it should leave behind,
a trail of hostility and bitterness.

By BARRIE HALE
Last week was Education
Week, though I noticed no undue clamour for my opinions
on education, or the lack thereof, in the school system of this
province.
This was some sort of oversight, surely, for nine year's
exposure to the B.C. school system qualified me for some sort
of observational role; certainly
it qualified me for nothing
else.
Perhaps, however, I am being
unfair After all, attendance at
High School enabled me to
gain entry to UBC, though it is
a somewhat dubious contention
that mere attendance should
have been a sufficient prerequisite However hotly I might
have denied the proposition in
High School, two year's of fencing with university English instructors have convinced me
that some degree of education
might well have been an entrance requirement. (This last
comment should be delivered
with an echo effect, as from a
great height).
1 am aware, of course, that
with present teaching standards education is well nigh
impossible to achieve. I am
also aware that High School
training is the basis for the
very political and economic
framework of our society. Who,
for example, would feel no
frustration at voting in a provincial election but someone
who had been High-School
trained? Who would attend to,
and, God help us, comprehend,
something like: "Next to my
family, I like Tide-clean
clothes," but the same estimable personage?
We must not, of course, in
any way infringe upon the individual autonomy of the adolescent   If he will not come to
you, by all means go to him.
This sonuds great; it certainly
sounded great to me when I
was .1 part of the teen-age tyranny. But il would be more
than a little refrshing to hear of
a doctrine that trained The
Youth Of Our Country in something oilier than recalcitrance.
The High School teacher is
forced, I realize, to work under
conditions that are close to intolerable; whereas physical su-
periorily and a cursory acquaintance with the English
language are the only really
necessary endowments in an
elementary teacher, the High
School teacher is from time to
time required to think; more
than that, he is required lo
know more than his students.
Poor soul; the only weapons
with which he can cope with
these absolutes are the nebulae
he learns in teacher-training.
Poor soul.
AMS AT A GLANCE
THIS IS SHARON LANDA. ASUS is having the election
of their 1957-58 executive Wednesday noon in Arts 100.
There i.s no possible connection between Miss Landa and
ASUS, except that she i.s in first year Arts. The Ubyssey
is merely running her picture as a sort of public service.
Four Million To BC
From Arts Council
UBC will gain over four million dollars from the new Canada Council and there's a possibility of thousands more in
graduate fellowships and scholarships, President N. A. M.
MacKenzie said Monday.
At last night's longest ever
AMS meeting, Students' Council:
1. REHASHED the pros and
cons of the proposed fee-increase
and introduced the new six dollar plan before tabling the motion pending reception of the
"Report on Athletics" now being
prepared.
2. ACCEPTED the responsibility of receiving applications
for next year's Totem editor, and
appointing same. The move came
at the request of present editor
Joan Crocker who felt that students on campus didn't realize
the "importance of the position
in campus life." All applications
must be turned in to Box 32
in Students' Council Office by
this Friday.
3. APPOINTED R A N D L E
JONES Public Relations Officer
for next year's council. Decision
was reached after four hours of
deliberation.
4. GAVE KATHY ARCHIBALD the post of World University Service Committee chairman for the forthcoming year.
5. APPROVED RUSSELL
BRINK as High School Conference chairman for next spring's
gathering.
6. REAFFIRMED their faith
in Peter Heron as NFCUS chair
man for another year.
7. ABSORBED the rest of the
eight-hour meeting with minor
constitutional revisions all oi
which will come up at the fall
general meeting. Most of the
amendments are minor clarifications for the sake of briefness
but some are of general interest.
8. SET ASIDE ten cents per
student in the constitution to go
towards furnishing the new
Brock Extension with paintings.
9. AMMENDED the constitution to provide that any future
ammendment must receive at
least a two-thirds majority ap«
proval in council before being
presented to the students. It was
passed by an 11-10 vote inspiring Councillor Tom Toynbee
to say, 'Well isn't that the damn-
dest thing!"
10. REMO.VED the Code
which covers student social behavior regulations from the Constitution so'that in future it may
be ammended solely by council.
LOOKED   CURIOUSLY   at
WUS President Lynda Gate*,
who spent most of the meeting
with head buried in her arms
on the table. "Lynda," finally
roared stern President Don Jabour. "I have a headache, if you
don't mind," icily replied Miss
Gates. "Well, don't have them
in Council meetings," Jabour
said.

THE ROAD TO POPULARITY
Dance Club Hive Of
Industry Noontime
By SUE ROSS
Believe it or not, Vancouver
dance orchestra leaders rarely
get a chance to play legitimate
dance music.
According to Commodore
band leader, Doug Kirk, the
unusual happened recently,
thanks to a few hundred UBC
students.
The few hundred are members of the campus Dance Club,
who staged a "Holiday Hangover" at the Commodore and,
according to Kirk, are the only
group he's ever played for who
could dance to every kind of
ixiusic he could offer.
From its first meeting, presided over by Anne Chorna, to
which twenty members came
in 1951, UBC Dance Club has
expanded, not only in membership, but also in popularity, to
be the largest club on campus.
SAMBA TO JIVE
Its present 692 members
rally during the week in Hut
G-4 to become inaugurated into
the mysteries of thc samba,
mambo, tango, cake-walk, the
waltz and the inevitable jive.
Besides this noon-hour session of ballroom and sometimes
square dancing, familiar
strains of music can be heard
from their club room behind
the Brock, as lessons continue,
gratis free, during the afternoon.
REELS TO REELING
Dance club is a hive of industry every day of the week.
Tuesday evenings find them
hopping Scottish reels and
other folk dances; while Wednesdays' group follow interpretative dancing, or modern
dances. Some members prefer
the old stately Continental ballroom style, while others stick
determinedly to the Can-Can.
Dance Club can even boast
of a Charleston couple — a
couple of boys, that is, one being decked out in feminine finery to give a bit of" color to this
somewhat vigorous dance.
TRAIN INSTRUCTORS
One of Dance Club's aims is
to train instructors. With Mr.
Grant Vincent of "Vincent
Dance Studio" setting the style,
the club's instructors are in
great demand not only within
the Club, but throughout Vancouver.
Dance Club sends its instructors to community centres, the
YMCA and YWCA, high
schools and various church
centres. Paid or not, the experience is fun, they say.
POPULAR
Popular with their instructors, Dance Club is also popular
when it comes to reviews at the
PNE, and demonstrations in its
Tango and especially Square
Dance groups.
Dance Club's present project is its annual spring show.
"Shore Leave" is in view for
March 14 and 15 and will reveal a good number of Dance
Club's members displaying just

PROBLEMS
Dance Club have their problems though, and the major
one is the too-intelligent mind
of the female. "Girls learn too
fast," president Leighton Tripp
complained, "and we have
trouble keeping them for the
noon-hour sessions."
Another "Beef" of Tripp's is
the stilted style of dancing on
campus. The waltz and the
Two-step are as far %as most
college social-bugs venture and
not much variety in those.
Speak of space to Dance
Club and "We need the whole

SPACE
The room alloted to Dance
Club will be open to anyone,
and they will have no office,
but at least they will have
more space than Hut G-4 gives
them.

membership promises to increase rapidly. For their first

The topic will be "Arteriosclerosis," one of the most challenging today in cardiovascular

This probably sounds a little bit formidable to the undergraduate concerned

Hockey Suffer
Initial Defeat
By LYNN CLARKE
At   Brockton   Poi'd   "•<   '
day, Varsity suffered their first
Field Hockey defeat of the year
as   they   were   shut   out   by   the
Recibirds  2-0.
In other field Hockey action
on Saturday, on the campus the
UBC Blues and Vancouver City
drew 2-2, while at South Memo
rial Park the UBC Golds defeated Ihe Cardinals 2-1.

Conroy, former British Olympic
star, failed to phase flic ambi
Hon of the UBC Blues as they
battled to a draw with Vancouver City. Victor Warren and
Colin Price triggered home the
goals which gained UBC the lie
wiih Vancouver City. Conroy
scored one Vancouver goal and
set up the other but failed to
score on a penalty bully with  10
skins played each other on the
Aggie Field, and the Tommies,
reinforced by several second
team members, romped to a 23-0
victory.
Ron   Longstaffe   scored   one
try,   Tod   Donaldson   two,   and
Roy Mason one try. Dave How-
n,,d   kicked   two   penalties   and

mis they scored five trys,  failing
I to   convert   any   of  them,   for a
! 15-0  victory.
On Sunday, eight Varsity players participated in the second
of a series of test matches for
the selection of the side which
is to meet the touring Barbarians I ii is spring.

the field, each of whom, is attempting to show what he can

Vancouver's loyal rugby followers wrapped in Iwocd and sniok
ing their favourite pipe, were
of one opinion, "when they were
boys tiny didn't muck it ahoul
like that."
The Varsity backs who were
together as a unit almost all

the pass.
The UBC backfield was not
getting the quick heel from the
loose rucks, nor were their forwards winning the ball in the
set scrums, possibly because the
selected Thunderbird forwards
were all playing for the other
team.
Hooker Dick Macintosh, in
the front row with Don Shore
and former UBC forward Peter
Grantham, won the ball almost

S0CCERITES SUFFER
LOSS TO PILSENERS
UBC's Varsity soccer team
suffered one of their worst
weekends in two years as they
lost to Pilsencrs Sunday and
fought to a 1-1 draw with
Royal Oaks Saturday.
Ken Ferrier scored on Saturday; while Bruce Ashdown
tallied for the Birds on Sunday against Pilseners.
UBC Chiefs massacred a
hapless Norquay eleven by
the fantastic score of 16-0.
Junior Varsity women's basketball team, defeated the Victoria Meteors by 12 points in a
two game total point series for
the B.C. championship at Victoria, Friday and Saturday.
UBC and Victoria battled to
a 36-36 draw Friday but Golds
piled up a 12 point lead in the
first half of the second contest,
and  won  handily, 39-27.
Golds displayed very good
team work in both games and
used a tight zone defence to stop
Victoria's attacks, UBC's Elizabeth Boyd, Friday's high scorer,
showed excellent control on the
free-throw line by potting four-
out-of-four to bring her total to
12 points. Lorna Allan got 10
points.
There was no doubt in the
outcome of Saturday's game.
UBC piled up an 18-8 lead in
the first half which they kept
throughout the rest of the game.
Only difficulty UBC encount-
ered was stopping Victoria's Kathy Callandar, but that was
also taken care of. Miss Callan-
dar, who scored 12 points in
the first three quarters, eight
of them in the third frame,
fell and injured her head near
three-quarter time, and was taken to the hospital,
UBC Golds set an impressive
record for UBC womens' basketball. They were the first UBC
junior womens' team ever to
make the playoffs, and won three
cups for their efforts, the Vancouver championship cup, the
B.C. Lower Mainland and Provincial championship cups.

By comparison with the
vacuum tube the transistor is
sm.iller, uses less current, generates little heat and has considerably longer life. It is
proving an invaluable instrument for the designers of
electrical equipment.
The manufacturing of
transistors and their use
in new equipment
is but one of a number
of challenging projects
currently being undertaken
by the Northern Electric
Company.
The solving of Canada's
communication problems
will give full scope
to the enquiring minds
and inventive genius
of young engineers.
There are interesting careers—and a continual
need for University Graduates—at the Northern

INSIDIOUS RACKET
Bootleg
Shakespeares
By WALCOTT GIBBS
An insidious racket dealing
in bootleg Shakespeare has
sprung  up  on  campus.
Thc Shakespeares were made
out of cardboard, and were
posters advertising the Player's
Club production of "Twelfth
Night" (in modern dress), coming to the Auditorium on the
21st.
The posters have been stolen
from classrooms and the Cafeteria.
Reports were received in thc
Ubyssey office today that the
contraband Shakespeares have
begun to appear in the Kerrisdale Flea Market. They were
being sold under the counter
at exhorbitant prices to myopic matrons who were convinced they were Liberace
dolls, it was reported.
39 YEARS OF SERVICE
TO THE UNIVERSITY OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA,
ITS FRATERNITIES
AND SORORITIES.
THEM'S A REASON
Asked to comment on the
series of thefts, Player's club
president Wayne Hubble said:
"I am outraged. Those posters were great; they were realistic, and made at the Art
School, and goodlooking and
everything, but mostly they
cost three bucks apiece and
that's why we want them back.
Anyway the play is on the
21st, 22nd, and 23rd, and it's
real good, too."
We concluded the interview.
The Ubyssey is no damn notice board, by god.
