Today We Yell - Later We Vote
In a few hours we will be bickering,
yelling, cajoling, and groaning over how
our money is spent. Some of us will be
righteously asking that we go on record
with a united donation of $5 per annum for
the next three years, to back the Development Fund.
Others will be, just as righteously and
indignantly, blaming the government and
private industry for not having matched
previous student contributions in ratio to
their ability. These persons will persuade
some of the less vocal members of the
audience that they may give to the Development Campaign if they wish, but shouldn't
vote for a mandatory $5 levy.
However, unless the anti-leviests are
amazingly loud in their protestations, and
if the straw-votes already taken by student
councillors at Undergraduate Society and
club meetings and at Leadership Conferences are valid indications of the temper
of the student body, we will probably
decide, before the end of this afternoon,
to raise our fees $5 for the building of
dormitories at UBC.
The arguments in favor of a fee increase
self-imposed are twofold: 1) we need dormitories, an indisputable fact; a fact that
is backed up by the possibility of not having them built for many many years by
any other means; and 2) the publicity value
attached to any student donations. This
last reason-is strong: such publicity could
very well lead to greater outside interest,
heightened activity in alumni and government circles, and the final convincing argument when outsiders ask if we are really
in the plight we say we are* Traditionally
rag-bound book-types are not likely to vote
a fee increase unless there is a pressing
need, and the man-on-the-street who boards
students in the winter or sees them thumbing rides at Sasamat, is well aware of that.
If we decide at today's meeting in the
Armouries to assess ourselves an additional
$5, our total contribution would fall in the
area of $150,000 over the next three years.
Matched by the government, providing it
is levied within this three-year campaign
period, it would total $300,000.
Today we decide by our own peculiar
circus - antics method. If the proposal
appears likely to go over, a referendum
will be issued so that all students can vote.
But if the vocalists who are against the
increase yell too loudly, nothing more will
be said about it. No referendum will]
GUEST EDITORIAL:    -   By Dave Robertson, Managing Editor
United Appeal Ineffective
Tomorrow members of the Commerce
Undergraduate Society will interrupt UBC's
morning activities to stage their annual
"Red Feather Blitz." Their aim i.s to collect
$1000 for the 1957 Greater Vancouver Community Chest drive.
I, for one, find fault with this "united
appeal" method of charity support.
It is not that the agencies thus cared
for are not a worthy enough cause. But for
them to depend wholly on voluntary public
donations for the millions of dollars needed
annually for their upkeep reflects a lack of
recognition of their importance by the community which spawned them. What is worse,
there are signs that the public will soon
cease to be able or willing to supply the
required funds.
Let's put it another way. When the little
can with the reel feather i.s passed to you,
you are allowed to chouse the amount you
put in. You don't have to give at all if
you don't want to. But you don't deserve
the right to choose how. much or how little
you give. As one of those who benefit from
the prevailing social system, you should
be required to give sufficiently that those
whom the same social system has failed can
The imminent failure of the public to
support charity through voluntary donations
to a united appeal can be seen in the fantastic publicity that has become necessary.
Nearly every place of business in the city
has sported a glaring red leather in its front
window for the last month. Editorial, news
and advertising columns in all the newspapers are all full of Community Chest promotion. Spot commercials for the Red
Feather drive on radio and television are
inumerable. All this publicity stresses to
John Public that to support the Community
Chest agencies i.s hi.s civic duty, which of
course it is. But John Public wouldn't need
to be pressured into giving unless he actually didn't want to give. And it begins to seem
that he doesn't, because even with its gigantic promotion, the Chest has had trouble in
recent years reaching its goal.
I submit that such a haphazard method
of obtaining funds lor charity is a discredit
to our society. It is now, and probably
always should have been, the duly ol the
state to provide for that aggregation of
humanitarian institutions to which we
blandlv   refer  as  "charitv."
Governments must bring all charity organizations under their control, even if
this means increased taxation. (1 suggest
that this be done, out of convenience, at
the municipal level.) This is the only way
our old and feeble and crippled and destitute can be looked after properly. The
* sooner it is done, the less misery our social
'misfits"  will  have  to endure.
It will be argued that such a measure
would remove all personal feeling from
giving. But charity is not a means for the
healthy and wealthy to add to their personal
satisfaction. The object of charity is to
heal the sick and to feed the hungry and
to clothe the poor and to comfort the lonely.
And besides, to implement government-
financed charity does not imply an end to
voluntary giving. The truly charitable no
doubt would still find outlets for their good
It might also be argued that the economy or, more likely, the public sentiment,
would not take kindly to any increase in
taxation, if this, a.s i.s likely, were necessary. Yet it seems strange that a public
which condones taxation to pay for things
like civil defense (which isn't doing them
any good) or the Canada Council (which
they* refuse to believe is doing them any
good) would begrudge another five or ten
dollars a year to charity.
Besides, what political body would dare
oppose a measure with such humanitarian
appeal? However, a change in emphasis
in government spending conceivably would
serve the purpose. Improvements in recreational or educational standards could be
temporarily passed over until minimum
living standards were improved to a respectable level. As a matter of fact, almost any
agency government funds are spent on could
go begging in the streets before charity
should. To be trite, what is more important
than life and health?
This, however, i.s ^future solution to
a present problem. I hope someday to see
this or an equally effective suggestion implemented. But in the meantime, it cannot
be denied that charity's needs are great. And
it is true thai it is our duty to give, no
matter how much we personally dislike
the vehicle of our sympathy.
The CUS is trying to colled roughly
eleven cents from each student. I do not
believe any thinking person will give less
than he can  possibly afford. r

EDITOR'S NOTE: Following
is the first in a series of articles
by Mr. Gus Kroll discussing
our educational system vis-a-vis
the Russian educational system.
As expressed in the editorial
of October 18. the editorial
board of the Ubyssey does not
endorse all the views nor the
basic premise herein expressed.
We feel, however, that Mr.
Kroll's argument merits careful consideration by educators,
statesmen, and students alike.
We hope that the university
. body to y/hom this series is addressed will give it that consideration and will take the
lime to commit its own views
to paper for publication here.
The subject is currently in the
minds of all persons connected
with the universities in this
country; we hope some readers
will not be content to leave it
there untouched, but will come
fir ward with alternative or coincident views on the subject.

North Basement, Brock Hall.
A few days ago Russia
launched the first artificial
earth satellite. Even though
Mr. Eisenhower, in between a
few rounds of golf, expressed
his view that this did not
really surprise him, the rest
of the world was not only surprised but amazed by the rate
viet Union must have made in
of scientific progress the So-
order to be able to make such
an accomplishment.
The military implications
are obvious. There can hardly
be any doubt that Russia has
an intercontinental ballistic
missile. Such a missile can be
charged with an atom- or
hydrogen-bomb warhead. And
provided  the  Russians  have
enough of those missiles, they
can be aimed at every major
city on this and the European
continent. Hardly a cheerful
But there is one other implication, namely, that Russia
is winning the race for scientific and technological supremacy. And this without
any of the motive forces that
private enterprise provides, in
a country which at the end
of the first World War belonged to the backward regions of the world and had
hardly any industry to speak
of, and had an almost totally
illiterate population.
Today she is the second
largest industrial power with
a rate of industrial progress
that exceeds the progress in
the United States. And all
this within a period of 40
years. What, if this continues,
will happen in, say, the next
ten years?
Provided that no major disaster interferes, it seems to
be quite obvious that this progress may not only continue
but even accelerate. Since
scientific advance and modern
standards of living are closely
interrelated (which for the
purposes of this argument I
assume as a basic premise)
we have all indications that
within our own generation
the standard of living in Russia will exceed our own. This
outlook too is hardly cheer-
arguments for private enter-
ful becouse one of the main
prise and private ownership
is that they create greater
material wealth than other
economic systems.
Assuming that communism
can prove that this is not so,
certainly such bystanding
nations as India, etcetera, will
take advantage of our economic system which will yield
a greater increase in material
wealth. This automatically
must result in closer relation
between such countries and
the Soviet Union; it results in
a loss of markets and trading
areas for the capitalistic
counrties; and it results in a
loss of political influence in
those countries.
And even if a shift to communism within those areas
results in curtailment of individual liberties, this will
hardly be felt by an ignorant, backward population to
whom liberty is a meaningless concept.
The question now is: Is
such a development inevitable; that is, can we do any-
thing to change matters
around so that Russia will not
be able to get ahead of us?
And if so, how can this be
To answer this question
we must ask ourselves: What
were the causes that have led
to Russia's phenomenal advance in technology and the
This has been answered
recently by Mr. Duncan, former President of Massey-
Harris-Ferguson who spent a
considerable time in modern
Russia studying in particular
the Russian educational system. According to Mr. Duncan the main reason for Russia's sudden progress is a
highly advanced educational
system which puts special emphasis on sciences and mathematics; which makes every
attempt to stimulate learning even in the young high
school student; which is free
for everyone provided that he
is capable of the education
offered; which with equal emphasis trains male and female
alike with the result that 50'-i
of Russia's students are
Mi. Duncan's view is that
the end-product of their education is in every way as
good as their North American counterpart; in certain
fields the Russian experts
are even ahead of the Americans.
What Mr. Duncan deduces,
i.e. that scientific advance i.s
mainly caused by education,
seems to be verified by a
number of substances in ancient and modern history.
Greece in its golden age, Itajy
in the Renaissance, Germany
in the previous century and
Japan in our own times
showed this. They also
showed that there is a direct
link between scientific and
material progress.
Therefore I am firmly convinced that Russia's advance
is mainly due to her educational system and for the purposes of this argument I will
treat this as axiomatic.
If this is so, the question of
whether it is possible to
change matters around so that
Russia will not be able to outstrip us, can be very easily
answered in the affirmative.
Of course it can be changed.
All that is necessary is to
modify our educational system in such a way that it will
turn out more engineers,
more scientists, and more
professionals than Russia
does; train more technicians
and more skilled tradesmen
and integrate them into one
productive society. The rest
will inevitably follow.

This University is too big
already. We are building a
monster that is incomprehensible, uncontrollable and inhuman. How can the intelligent student exist as an individual in classes numbering in
the hundreds? The voice of
conformity to the 'normal', the
'average', the 'expected', kills
free thought and free expression. We want students who
have the courage and the climate to express their own free
To be dauntless in the face
of opposition regardless of
whether they are in the majority or not. Communistic
countries desire fervently to
have all their population aligned in terms of mass thought,
then is the population amenable. In Canada we are approaching the same product
though apparently decrying
the propounders of the theme.
Do not think then that this is
to declaim education, be it in
school or university. Vancouver is a giant that is draining
the wealth and resources of
It would seem that UBC is
going to follow the same
course. How much more creditable would it not be to see
this University as the parent
University. Victoria is an excellent city, why should it not
have its university? and there
are many other cities in the Interior. Are none of these of
stature to justify the beginnings of a new University College at the least? Let UBC be
the prime mover in these projects and its generous spirit
will be an inspiration to all.
The Russians put out 74,000
technical graduates this year.
If we wish to emulate such a
project let us not ruin our Universities in the process. Such
people are more advantageous-
hut there  is everv  reason  whv
ly thc project of the technical
school training. Institutions of
this type are undoubtedly needed throughout Canada. A University is the place where a
full education as a preparation
for intelligent adult life may
be gained.
There is no reason why technicians shouldn't be trained,
students desirous of this mode
of schooling should be swamped or pushed out of their
place by multitudes of "satel-
litists" or some other form of
scientific technician.
Yours truly,
Forestry Grad.
Totem Disappointment
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
It will probably come as a
surprise to hundreds of students who have paid in advance for their 1957-58 Totem
to learn that no undergraduate
pictures will appear in this
year's edition of the book.
This decision was reached
lately by the Editor of the Totem, Norman Pearson.
According to the Editorial
Board of The Ubyssey, who
have rubber stamp authority
over Totem policy, the reasons
for this decision are manifold.
Assemblying and cataloguing 8,000 pictures of the large
grey mass is an undesirable
chore and it has been difficult
in the past to find anyone to
accept the responsibility.
Printing costs also have
made it desirable to forego inclusion of the pictures in the
While the arguments in favour of doing away with undergraduate pictures are strong,
it seems too bad that this fact
was not advertised to students
during the advance sale of
Totem subscriptions. No doubt
many people will be disappointed.
