Gibson Recommends
Taxing Big Companies
If Crown Zellerbach is going
;to take the cream of UBC graduates, it should pay for the
costs of the university.
Gordon Gibson, ex-Liberal
MLA for Lillooet, made this
statement in a speech to UBC
students Wednesday.
' Gibson said the large industrial companies in B.C. were
trying to curry favour with the
people by giving scholarships to
the university.
—photo by Olsen
The companies want to show
the people how generous they
are and draw attention away
from their big profits, the ex-
MLA said.
One way to cut down on the
large profits of these companies
is for the government to levy a
tax similar to an income tax,
he said.
Charge them 50 percent on the
first "million and then raise -the
tax percentage on profits in excess of this; Gibson suggested.
•Gibson said the tycoons of
industry and some politicians
sometime, work against the best
interests of the people. He used
the Wenner-Gren project as a
possible example of this.
B.C.'s youth should take an
active interest in the Wenner-
Gren project because "when we
lose a fifth of B.C. we lose a part
of our birthright."
"If it's not wrong in practice
it's absolutely wrong in principle," the ex-MLA added.
Gibson said that land should
be publicly sold in small lots so
that everyone has a chance to
buy, not just the tycoons.
WUSC Reports
Four U.B.C. delegates to
the WUSC study seminar last
summer in the West Indies
will present their seminar
report at noon today, in
Buchanan   106.
Norman Gish will give his
general impressions resulting
from the conference. Rod
Dobell will speak on economic problems, while John
Munro will discuss political
and constitutional problems.
The fourth delegate, Professor Charles Bourne, will answer any questions from the
Slides of the trip will also

Brief Presented
To Haskins Today
A brief in the form of a diagram will be presented to the
Haskin's Commission investigating student government today
at  noon.
Paul Hazel will present this
first brief at the opening meeting of the group.
The commission meets at
noon, in: tjie Board Room upstairs in" the North Brock. The
meetings j are open to the public and interested persons are
invited to attend.
One other brief was scheduled for presentation today, but
it has been postponed until after  Christmas,   , '     •
Pete: Haskins, commission
chairman, stressed again that
anybody with an idea for a
brief is invited to come and see
him or any member of the commission.
If you have a comment on
student government, but do not
wish to draw up a brief, at
least pass on your comments to
some one connected with the
... Once again, Haskins would
like to remind the student body
that the commission will fail
without its support.
The work of the commission
will affect the form of student
government for many years to
come, he said, and unless we
have student ideas contained in
our report, we will have failed.

a large jeering audience of UBC
students  Tuesday.

system Caron said 'Today in
China the textile industry is
surpassing Great Britain. Their
achievement is  impressive".
He added "Prior to liberation,
China had hardly any industry
at all."
The question from the floor
"Would the speaker rather live
in a Chinese commune?"
brought cheers, laughter -and
clapping from the audience.
The speaker answered that
the system was the only one
that will bring the Chinese up
to our standard of living.
"It will not be long before
the Chinese surpass us," Caron
During his speech the party
organizer verbally, attacked a
Sun reporter for misrepresenting communal life.
"That reporter has done a
very great disservice," he said.
"The commune is not a plot of
the communists."
Carron said "The Tibet-Indian
border question is one of the
products of British Imperialism.'*
He said the border was never
clearly defined.
"The first act of aggression
came from India," Caron asserted.

The* Student's Council  has  recently been   criticized   for
Circulating a petition of protest among the students.
This, petition is a protest against the proposed execution
©f 150 or more Hungarian students for their part in the
Hungarian revolt of 1956. It has been criticized by a number
♦f* people who" have either a personal grudge against the
Hungarians or a strong trust in the leaders of the Hungarian
Gomniunist party. These people are accusing council of going
©II half'•cocked, of protesting something for which it has
■o proof, and of accepting the words of a television personality
0& axfascist;
' Now* it is quit* true that we have no definite proof that
i^m^fe muMer will take place or that 150 students are being
fopj'in jail'wfcrngly, and.it is also quite true that the Canadian
government and the National Federation of University Students
have officially stated that there is no evidence to support this
(claim. BUt oh the other hand, complete proof of the type
atSfiarided by the petition's detractors is probably impossible
td. igetj and' NFCUS has privately lauded and encouraged
,lmC's plan and no governmental agency has publicly or
privately disproved of our action, although they are quite
»^are of it.
r ' But because of the criticism, the bad name UBC might
g&t* if the claim should somehow be proven false, and the
e$ance that more concrete action might have been obtained
if the matter had been approached from a different angle, I
personally feel that it would have been better to word the
petition differently. It should have been written to the effect
that the undersigned, students of Canadian universities, urges
the Canadian Government to fully investigate the rumor that
150 Hungarian youths are to be executed and, finding some
"concrete" evidence from more reliable sources, use the petition as a protest againsts the action. A copy of this petition
could then have been sent to Sir Leslie Munro, asking him
to bring the matter up for discussion in the General Assembly
of the United Nations. If the matter had been handled in this
fashion, then no one could claim that we were trying to pro-
vfike more international tension.
However, the deed has been done and cannot be undone.
There is the possibility that more good than harm will come
from it, as Peter Meekison, AMS President, has assured the
Ubyssey that a covering letter will accompany a copy of the
petition to Diefenbaker and the U.N. asking that the matter
be fully investigated.
It was largely due to UBC's prompt attention to the
Irtatter, however, that NFCUS was prompted to officially ask
Sir Leslie Munro to investigate the situation some time ago,
arid the following release from the Canadian Press, dated
November 17, is .certainly encouraging proof that-our joint
efforts are already bearing fruit.
"A charge was made at United Nations today that Communist Hungary is still trying and executing anti- Communist
rebels despite promises there would be no more of this. Sir
Leslie Munro of New Zealand made the charge and asked the
United Nations Assemibly to consider the Hungarian situation,
Munro is the United Nations' special representative on Hun-
Note: We regret that this release was received too late to
be included oh the front page of today's paper.
Dear Sir:
It is undeniably true that the
members of fraternities and sororities do play a major role
on campus. This minority to a
much greater extent than the
non-Greek majority supplies
the student body with its leaders. It is then naturally disarming when part of this influential group advocates
Granted that a fellow has
the right to choose'his friends,
as we so often hear from some
frat men in defence of discriminatory policy. But just what
does, that statement mean in
this context? It means that this
choosing of friends is not based
on the expected criteria of congeniality, intelligence and similarity of interest, but on the
criterion of race. "I have the
right to choose my friends," in
this context means, "People of
other races are not good enough
to be my friends."
The difference between Johannesburg, Little Rock, and
Frat Society, U.B.C. is then
merely one of degree, for if
members of a race (which
means all members) are considered not good enough to be
one's friends, they are prob'
ably considered, inferior in
many other respects.
That the Inter - Fraternity
Council has not long ago censured these groups or kicked
them out altogether, infers that
our frat men don't care or perhaps, even worse, that they
agree, if only passively, that
people of some races are just
not good enough.
Yours truly,

Dear Sir:
The Homecoming Da nee
this year was a rousing success, but for one unfortunate
The point in question relates
to an activity, that many students like to indulge in when
they go out dancing for an
evening. And that something
is consuming alcoholic' spirits.
At downtown cabarets, pubs,
night clubs, rented halls, fraternity houses, and private
homes, students are found with
a glass in hand, and it's not
milk that's in it. As their
-pocketbooks and stomachs can
only take so much, most of
them indulge in "moderation".
At these "wet" functions, the
average student is able to behave himself at least as well
as the more "adult" drinker,
and oftentimes better than the
older crowd.
Here at UBC, the situation
we have is that absolutely NO
liquor whatsoever can be consumed at social functions, on
the campus. Oh, you say, but
that's not the- way I saw it at
Homecoming. Maybe so, but
you'll have to.admit that those
who were getting the odd nip
down were as sober and well-
behaved a group as the ones
that  drink   off-campus.
And let's face it, if people
want to drink, one little Bylaw and a commissionaire certainly won't stop them. For
these mamsmoth-Armouries-
type dances where tables and
chairs are spaced cabaret-style,
liquor permits should be made
available so that drinking at
these functions can be made
Legal drinking would stop
all    this    nonsensical    "under
the table" furtiveness that
was so obvious at Homecoming. However, I must admit
that at the beginning of the
evening I was puzzled* by all
this "ducking" under tables.
When someone at the crowded
table I was sitting at reached
down and did "something", I
likewise did the same, but all
I got was the tail-end of some
sweet, young thing's crinolin
in my hand and fist in the eye
from her boy-friend!
Alcoholically yours,
Ralph  Henderson.

Dear Sir,
May I beg the indulgence of
the editor and readers once
more in order to reply to Mr.
Meekison. His answer in no
way makes clear any points
but merely justifies his original action, and it is this that I
If Mr. Meekison would read
my letter carefully he would
find that I did not question the
political affiliation of the students allegedly about to be
shot. Why should I? for I have
reasonable doubts of their existence. What I did question
and still question is the evidence submitted by those,
whose political and moral
behaviour during the war is
quite well known, and who
wiere old enough to assist in
the worst atrocities the world
has ever known.
A striking example of one
whose word we are asked to
believe also wrote a letter 'to
the Ubyssey on November
6th. According to this gentleman anybody who does not believe the Hungarian refugees
is a Communist. Now I am no
Communist, but it would be
useless to explain this to him,
for his guttersnipe language,
pathetic infantile political
jargon, and his terms of abuse
give an indication of his mental  and  moral level.
For a responsible University to send off a petition
merely because the charges
might be true, and on such
flimsy evidence will only
serve to weaken the value of
any further justifiable petition. Let me make it perfectly
clear that I in no way doubt
the sincerity of the A.M.S.,
and those signing the petition,
but I do doubt if much thought
preceded  their  action.
Perhaps the A.M.S. can
make the  situation clearer by
1. Printing in full the evidence upon which they acted.
2. The identities of those presenting  the  evidence.
3. A copy of the telegram to
Sir Leslie Munro and if received,  his  reply.
4. Some indication that they
first checked with the Canadian Department of External Affairs, and if they
did the results of such investigations.
I    might    also    add    that   I
think the above points should
have  been  carried  out before
circulating the petition.
Yours truly,
in an introductory course in
German in spite of the fact that
she had spent a year in Germany.
Mr. Richards obviously does
not know that every case of a
student with unusual background in German is treated
on an individual basis and that
one of our main tasks for the
first' two weeks of term is the
interviewing and reassessment
of the qualifications of such
students who may have been
overlooked in the rush of registration. Many of these are
moved into higher courses. Had
this particular student brought
her case to our attention, it
would have been dealt with in
this way. I might add, however,
that a year spent in Germany
does not necessarily mean eligibility for an intermediate
course any more than the lack
of the prerequisite means ineligibility. I should very much
like to discuss this matter with
the student and help her plan
a course for a Major in German.
It is1 the responsibility of this
department to see that students
are registered in courses from'
which they can derive most
benefit and which demand their
best effort. The recommendations we have made to the Registrar's office have always
been accepted without question.
Yours truly,
—G. Joyce Hallamore,
Head, Dept. of German:
The Editor,
Dear Sir:
It is time that the Students'
Council took a good look at
some of the things that it is
concerned with. So far this
year there have been two
dances of major proportion—
the Frosh Reception and Homecoming. Both, as far as we
are concerned, were failures if
their object was to provide entertainment.
In both cases the number of
couples allowed to enter- the
Armouries was an absolute
blunder on the part of those in
charge. It is fine to limit
tickets, but to limit them as
was done for the Saturday
Homecoming is really just a
special limitation. , It would
have been damm hard to cram
another couple into that building, even if one used a shoehorn.
Naturally, dancing under
such crowded conditions is difficult. Practically hopeless, in
fact. -It was not worth your
life to try to dance, even in
the slow numbers.
To charge $3.50 fo rthis was
sheer highway robbery, to use
an old phrase that still applies.
We paid the above sum on the
understanding that this was to
be a dance. • W,e were mistaken.
We want our money back.

"We paid $514 for a group of
people we didn't need, we didn't
want and we didn't use," said
John   Goodwin   Monday   night.
-He was speaking to students'
counqil regarding the stand-by
band that AMS had to hire for
the  Homecoming  dances.
Council was discussing
whether or not they should
withhold payment because of
what Homecoming committee
felt was unsatisfactory conduct

that the Musicians' Union has
the power to force AMS to hire
■ ""stand-by band.
This unnecessary expenditure
•t over$500 makes it that much
more difficult for the AMS to
pfit on first class functions of

us as students, and the community as a whole, a definite disservice.

As has been the custom recently, council was not sure
jijst what to do with them.
It is stated in the AMS code
that IFC is required to submit

After a period of unusually
satne discussion it was decided
that this provision was "ultra

deleting it from the code. The
same provision for Pan-Hellenic

The decision that the code
was "ultra vires" in this respect was based on the fact that

space to show their film this

to book rooms from now on.
This action Is in line with
council policy to protect the
interests of groups operating
under AMS from competition
by groups not so constituted.
We feel, that although the
principle is a laudable one,
there is a possibility that the
campus    is    losing    something

Political Accusation
Leads To Suspension
editor of a Quebec university

The Association General des

decision by its executive to suspend Jean-Paul Gagnon, editor
of Laval's student newspaper, Le
Gagnon was. suspended because of the tone of an article in
the Nov. 3 issue of Le Carabin.
The article, written,by Social
sciences student, Remi Savard,
accused the Roman Catholic hierarchy of collusion with the provincial government.
The council termed the article
"injurious to the Roman Catholic hierarchy and bad for the
good name of the Laval students."'
Laval university is run by The
Oblate fathers.

fate of the staff of Le Carabin,

Staff Resign

of a move to oust University of
Montreal Student Council President Hubert Reid last Thursday,
has brought about the abrupt resignations of fou? student councillors and the entire staff of the

and publicity and advertising
directors Arthur Shapiro and

council "lacked courage" in refusing to fire*Reid,
