Training Programme Begins
For 200 Student Executives
Student Executive Training Program, sponsored by the University Clubs Committee,
got underway Wednesday in Arts 100 with speeches by Professor Davies, Assistant to the
President, and AMS President Don Jabour.
Students' Council members led discussion  groups on  parliamentary  procedure.
Reverend Stott Asks
Students To Believe
It you don't open your lives to Christ "you are spiritually
poor, blind and naked," stated the Reverend Mr. John Stott
to a quiet Brock Hall audience Thursday.
Mr. Stott likened Jesus Christ*^-
to a man knocking at the door,
afkmg to be admitted. "He has
come right up to the front door
if cur lives," to be admitted.
"(>.,r religiousness is no cloak
tor our sins," he said vigorously.
"We have nothing to our credit

Social Credit Club officials
denied Thursday rumors that
their group did not support or
condone the actions of UBC's
Second Great Trek Committee.
They stated that negotiations
were under way tor a group of
about 40 members of the Social
Credit Club to visit Premier W
A. C Bennett .sometime in February with a view to discuss
UBC problems with the premier.
During the visit with Bennett,
officials plan to invite him to

Over 200 budding student

evening meeting.
i Meeting, which began about
8 p.m., was divided into three
parts: — a JO-minute introductory speech on parliamentary
procedure by Professor Davies;
hour-long discussion groups in
which the young executive types
were given a project --- conduct-

then worked out problems
which arose; and finally a coffee

The Right Attitude
Students' Council is soliciting opinions concerning
changes that must be made in UBC's system of student government to meet demands of increasing enrollment. It is
to be hoped that many students Will give more than a little
thought to the problem; whatever i.s finally decided will
affect the AMS for years to come.
Since opinions are being requested, we might as well
advance ours. And first off. we wish to emphasize that the
problem isn't a complicated one. The political science types
are anxious to offer all sorts of devious and ingenious
schemes, whose complexity is unjustified by the nature of
the problem. The Council Committee that drafted the main
report on the problem had just about the right attitude:
The report was a little more than two pages long, and recommended just a few changes.
In the main, we'll go along with Committee report. It's
true, as the report asserts, that UBC can boast of the most effective system of student government in Canada. This fact
alone should indicate that only relatively minor revisions are
advisable. *
And in our opinion, the objections to the report made
by members of the Undergraduate Societies Committee at
Council meeting Monday night are adequately answered in
the report itself. The USC representatives argued that the
report made no provision for 'loyal opposition" to Council
from USC. The best way to answer this objection is to quote
from  tho  report   itself:
USC is and has been weak internally and must put
its own house in order. It will be as weak or strong as it
desires to be.
This is absolutely correct. No one who has seen Council
operate will deny that some sort of opposition, some body
thai can pick holes in existing proposals and supply fresh
alternatives i.s badly needed. USC is the logical body to fulfill that function. But, a.s the report points out, no constitutional changes are required to bring it about. All that is needed i.s for USC to pull up its socks, and devote the energy they
are now expending on opposing the Council report to oppose and or co-operating with Council.
One small objection to the report though: in view of the
fact that UBC's enrollment will double soon, and since
(he extent of the student acivities varies almost directly with
the size of the studen' population, wouldn't the addition of
two or three extra Councillors be advisable'.' We think so,
and we're sure most of our overburdened Councillors would
Those then, are our modest thoughts on the problem
of how best to revise- o :r system of student government at
UBC. We hope other st .ulents disagree with us, to the extent of at least thinking and talking about this quite important question.
Your view.-, will be mure than welcome at Students'
As the "former pep-clubber"
referred to in your editorial of
January 24, I feel obliged to
express my point of view on
ihe past performances of the
I will first admit that I am
not too well acquainted wiih
the mechanics of newspaper
publishing, such a3 layout, cut-
lines, print site, etc. However,
as a reader of newspapers, I
feel as any other reader would,
I can adequately comment on
what is newsworthy. And
since I have spent five years
being active in student affairs,
I think I can comment on what
the obligations of the Ubyssey
should be towards ihe students
who pay for its very existence.
I agree a campus paper's job
is to provide advance publicity
and news coverage, and I will
agree that the balancing of the
two is a continually taxing
But when serious criticism
is levied ai the Ubyssey for its
failure to maintain a proper
balance, ii should not be disregarded just because the critics are not pubsters.
Ii must be remembered that
ihe Ubyssey, as a campus paper, has certain obligations ii
should fulfill and therefore has
not quite ihe freedom a downtown  paper    would    have    in
choosing  material  for  publication.
As ihe sole publicity medium
which is published almost
daily, ihe Ubyssey can spell
success or failure for any campus event depending on how
ihe paper's coverage is organized and slanted.
Certainly a club Pro. must
look after all other means of
publicity too, but lei's face ii;
no one has any opinion on a
coming campus event except as
the Ubyssey promotes it.
What brought over 1500 out
to watch "Honey-bun" swim
the pond? What packed the
Auditorium for the "My Dog
Has Fleas Revue" last year?
Ii certainly wasn't their
The Ubyssey can make anything as big or as small as it
wishes. As a newspaper it is
the most powerful moulder of
public opinion on the campus.
It therefore plays a most important role In determining the
success of the student activity
program ai UBC.
But the success of the student program is the responsibility of ihe Students' Council.
Therefore I do not propose to
delegate thai responsibility to
ihe Ubyssey. but just ask for
honest co-operation.
I  feel thai ihe  athletic  pro
gram which uses $25,000 of
student fees should be better
supported for the benefit of
athletes and spectators alike.
I feel the special events program which brings lop-flight
talent to ihe campus should receive good publicity.
I don't want ihe Ubyssey to
turn into a notice board any
more than ihe Editor does, but
I feel thai some of ihe most deserving events of ihe past have
been ignored.
As far as news coverage is
concerned, I feel ihe fact that
football lost $1,600 last fall is
a newsv/orihy facet of ihe very
controversial problem of athletics, yet who read about it in
ihe Ubyssey?
Generally speaking, the
Ubyssey is performing a fine
job. The past events of recent
weeks have only pronounced a
small shortcoming of ihe paper
and I would certainly hesitate
to condemn it on all counts.
However for the present I
shall consider the Ubyssey's invitation to observe the "press"
in action (which I've already
done many times) and perhaps
my accountant and athletic
friends will even consent to
put out ihe paper one of these
AMS President.
History Will Honor Eden
When All Is Said And Done
We are saddened by Sir Anthony's resignation, saddened
because of the personal and
political causes that brought it
about. But — so we hope —
this is not the last we shall
hear of him. For this man
who is not yet sixty will have
many chances to contribute to
history, and certainly history,
when the final count is made
of his achievements and failures, will honor him.
He made all the right enemies. He specialized in arousing the enmity of the second-
string dictators who came to
hate him and his country with
equal vehemence. We think,
of course, of Mussolini and
Nasser. The second-string dictators are the most pernicious
of that ugly breed. Hitler embodied evil so thoroughly and
carried it to such superhuman
extremes that since his death
no totalitarian tyrant has even
tried to mold himself on his
pattern. The same can be said
about Stalin, though not quite,
for the kind of boundless power that was his is inherent in
every Communist regime.
But since the March on
Rome, there have been quite a
few Mussolinis, and two or
three ot them are still in the
saddle, hale and hearty. It' the
reports are correct, there
seems to be a potential Nasser
in every Arab state or sheikdom.
The second-string dictators
arc personable One can talk to
them, and derive from the ex
change of pleasantries or ideas
the conviction that they are
quite human. Actually, they
are only half human, for there
is a beast within them that can
be subjected only with great
difficulty to the check of will
power or even of self-interest.
This was Mussolini's case. The
beast in Franco seems to have
been housebroken, but it is still
there. As long as there is life,
there is hope.
Anthony Eden saw these
half-human tyrants for what
they were, and fought untiringly against them—or at least
against those of them who most
directly threatened his country. This may turn out to be
the major among the great services he rendered to Britain
and the world.
Mussolini gloaed when, in
Ifl.'US, Anthony Eden, to save
his self-respect, resigned from
the Chamberlain Cabinet. Benito Mussolini had fired the Foreign Secretary of Great Britain.
Winston Churchill, in The
Gathering Storm. ' tote what
he felt the nigh! the news
reached him that Eden had resigned.
"1 must confess thai my
heart sank, and for a while the
dark waters of despair overwhelmed me. In a long life 1
have had many ups and downs
During all the war soon to
eoive  and  ni  its darkest  times
I  never had    any    trouble in
In the crisis of 1940, when
so much responsibility lay
upon me, and also at many
very anxious, awkward moments in the following five years
I could always flop into bed
and go to sleep after the day's
work was* done — subject, of
course, to any emergency call.
I slept sound and awoke refreshed, and had no feelings
except appetite to grapple with
whatever the morning's boxes
might bring.
But now, on this night of
February 20, 1938, and on this
occasion only, sleep deserted
me. From midnight till dawn
1 lay in my bed consumed by
emotions of sorrow and fear."
Now it's Nasser who docs the
gloating. But history has a
way of being right in the end.
Remember the  Duce's  end'.'
An engineer is one who
passes as an exacting expert on
the strength of being able to
turn out, with prolific fortitude, strings of incomprehensible formulae calculated with
micrometric precision from extremely vague assumptions,
which are based on debatable
figures acquired from inconclusive tests and quite incomplete experiments, carried out
with instruments of problematic accuracy by persons of
doubtful reliability and rather
dubious mentality, with the
narticular anticipation of dis-

What UBC Wants - And Why
(Tht following ore
excerpts from the brief
presented today to the
provincial government
requesting funds for
the expansion of facilities at the University
of British Columbia.
We submit to the Cabinet the
f       following   facts  for  consideration:
1. By 1956 the enrollment
at U.B.C. will have doubled
to 15,000 students, and predictions are that they will continue to rise.
2. The $10,000,000 grant was
not expected to cover either
the staff or building for the
new Faculty of Education. Rather, it was intended for three
specific projects; (a) A new
Arts Building, (b) A Medical
Sciences Building and (c) A
unit of dormitories. There was
also provision for the extension and enlargement of necessary services, such as plumbing, sewage, and heating,
3. Construction costs have
increased at least 10c,i since
the Capital grant was allocated.
4. If the authority to spend
the capital grant continues at
the present rate of $1,000,000
per year, only two new buildings will have appeared on the
campus by 1961, whereas in
that period enrollment will
have increased by 4000 students. Furthermore, neither of

the two buildings will be utilized for a new course of instruction or for student housing.
We make the following suggestions for consideration by
the Cabinet and the Legislative Assembly:
1. That ihe operating grant
for tht University in future
years be calculated on ihe basis
of: (a) the total Government
revenue, (b) the per capita
enrollment at the University,
and c) the purchasing power
of the dollar in real terms,
with the provisions that an addition to the University's curriculum (such as Education, and
the proposed schools of Dentistry and Physio-Therapy) will
mean a further increase in the
operating grant.
2. That $5,000,000 be added
to the capital grant already allocated, making a total of $15,-
000,000 for ten years; but that
$10,000,000 of that sum be
authorised for expenditure in
the next five years. Authority
to use the money now would
allow the University to proceed
with more than one building
project at once. This is imperative ii the University is to
keep pace wiih enrollment and
ihe increasing demand for university graduates.
Based on the findings of the
students' committee, the students now request financial
aid from the Government of
British Columbia:
1. To provide for speedy construction of adequate facilities
for the areas of study now provided at the University, and to
increase these facilities for:
(a) a very rapidly-growing
(b) new areas of study anticipating the industrial, social
and cultural needs of B.C.'s
citizens    i n    a    mushrooming
(c) To provide funds for sorely-needed student housing,
which always suffers when it
must compete for funds with
classroom space.
2. An increase in the University's operating budget
which will meet:
(a) The increased costs that
arise wiih increasing enrollment.
fb) Competition from B.C.
industry, which is hard-pressed
for technically-trained men and
can offer a great deal more-
re ward to persons who might
otherwise teach and do research at U.B.C.
3. We also request the Government to enunciate a clearly-defined program of future
financial aid from the Government of British Columbia that
will provide:
(a) An increase in U.B.C.'s
operating budget when new faculties or services are added
to the University's curriculum.
(b) A set sum for capital expansion on a yearly basis to
increase the efficiency of the
University's building program
and to enable the Senate and
Board of Governors to anticipate and or meet needs for
additions to the University's
In summary, ihe problem
U.B.C faces is not unique in
Canada nor in North America.
Within ihe next ten years Canadian universities will have jto
find $350,000,000. Industry has
taken cognizance of the situation, and set up a fact-finding
commission to determine the
needs and possible methods by
which industry could help with
the University's problems as
they concern industry.
The Federal Government has
shown concern, and the unprecedented grant of $50,000,000
for  capital construction  is at
lime of writing before the
House of Commons. It is to be
hoped that this is only the first
step on the Federal Government's part.
As students, we are also taxpayers. Any long-range program put into effect as a result
of our requests will affect us
both as students and taxpayers, now and in the future.
The following i.s the list of
needs which are being submitted in the brief for Government   consideration:
1. Preclinical Medical Sciences Building.
2. Dormitories    ($2,000,000.)
3. Wing and additional floor
in the Biological Sciences
4. Chemistry Wing.
5. Engineering  Building.
6. Commerce Building.
7. Collpgc of E d u c a t i o n
8. Agriculture Building.
9. School of Music.
10. Architecture Building.
11. Museum   Building.
12. Wing  to Library.
13. Money   for   campus   development     and     essential
14. Botanical Gardens development.
Much more needs lo be done
than can be done with the grant
we have requested. Ideally, ihe
huts should be replaced, additions on several overcrowded
buildings should be built, and
new schools added as soon
as posible.
It is altogether fitting that
thc Federal Government accept part of the responsibility
for research, graduate studies,
scholarships to foreign students, and especially Library
Tbs Provincial Government,
on ihe other hand, has ihe major responsibility for ihe provision of basic facilities, including all undergraduate faculties
and schools, residences, and the
establishment of professional
schools 'which serve the province.
So far as we know, we are
the only University student
body in Canada to meet with
our elected government to discuss a mutual problem. The
eyes of every university in
Canada are upon us and on the
Government. Our last and possibly strongest plea would be:
Give the University of British
Columbia all the help and support at your command.
Half-time entertainment in the form of an open struggle
between Fort and Acadia camps is in store for the Saturday afternoon game between U.B.C. and Pacific Lutheran
Teams from each of the camps will clash at half-tim§
in a boxing-glove basketball game. It will be refereed by
Frank Gnup, wearing dark glasses and sporting a white
cane. The teams will be supported by their own luscious
type of virgin cheerleaders.
Be sure to attend the game tonight at 8.30 against
visiting Central Washington College. Details on page 8.

Although the students had
arms, and lots of them, they had
no ammunition. The arms were

these weapons. All of the men
and women had received long
periods of intensive military

The corridor stayed open and

The.-e   were   the   words   of   a
- twentv -year-old     Foro.-Ury     student,  who arrive'd  yoslcrday  to
start   a   new  life   in   Canada.
I spoke lo him through an interpreter, in the crow tied re
ception hall at the Abbotsforn
R.C.A.F. field. We were discussing the part Sopron students played in the recent rebellion. He was reluctant to discuss the "hoirors" of the revolt,
but talked freely of the lighter
"When we had destroyed a
Russian tank, we chalked "Drive
Safely" on the charred remains." he said, smiling. He
spoke rapidly in Hungarian, and
the interpreter turne'd to tho
circle' of councillors and importers surrounding him. and said
"He says that the Russian soleh
iers slept in their tanks at night.
Some of them would drape a
Hungarian flag on the tank, to
protect themselves from the rebels while they slept.
"One morning the crew of a
Russian tank woke up, and saw
that the tank beside them was
flying the rebel flag. They blasted the Russian tank, thinking j
it   was   Hungarian,   and   killed
five   of   their   friends."
Someone asked if they spoke
Russian. "Well, we can swear in
Russian,"   he   replied.
He   then   asked   about   work.
"They are all worried about get
ting   jobs,"   the   interpreter   explained.  "He  wants  to  know   if
they'll be able to support themselves.   Nod   your   heads."   The!

Students are given the equivalent of S40 a month while they ■

My first surprise came when
the Hungarian students' President offered me a Canadian
cigarette1. 1 asked if co-eds in
Hungary smoked. "Of course,"
he answered, through the interpreter, "they smoke, they
drink, and they shoot."
"That i.s good." Maria Bor-
bely, informed me. Girls and
boys were compelled to spend
three hours a week and one
month each summer learning
to use heavy artillery and drive
tanks. We learned, and then
we used it against the teachers  . . the  Russians."
The interpreter had difficulty translating the girl's remarks, so I inquired: "One of
our leporters speaks Russian.
Can  \ on speak that'.'"
He waived his hands to express his indignation. "Are you
a Russian?" he said harshly.
Th" truth is these 200 Forestry students from the Sopron University speak Russian and German fluently; they
expect to speak English lie-
fore next September when they
enter UBC.
I motioned to a photographer. Sanolor llorvatb, 2H-year-
old leader of the student uprising, told me. "We've been
photographed so often, we feel
right at home in front of the
camera." They laughed  loudly
when the camera failed to flash

would go back with gun in
hand and save the nation as
we saved the University of Si>-
pron for Ihe future. The students left there are too weak
now to rebel. They will grow
strong again."
"Bui we would like to become Canadian citizens," he
hastily added.
The room in which the Hungarian students were checking
through customs and migration was smoke-filled, noisy
and green.
Everyone was smoking Canadian cigarettes: everyone was
talking volubly: and everyone was wearing a green coat '
or a bulky woolen green sweat-:

One of the refugees interviewed by Ubyssey reporters on
Thursday was Laszlo Takaro,
twenty-two year old. fifth-ycr
Forestry student from Dcbrecan,
Had the rebellion not occurred, do you think you would
ever have come to Canada?" he
was asked.
"No," ho replied, "I had never
thought   of   leaving   my   native

jam   thankful   for   the   opportu-

I "What was your impression of

jporter asked.
"Well,   I   was   confused,   like
everybody else was. We had
, two sources ot information, and
1 didn't  know  which  to  believe."
Las/lo said.
"We had the official Communist publications, that said that
life in North America was mis-
erable for the working class, and
the intellectuals, because the
capitalist bosses exploit thc
working class," and we had the
illegal sources — friends who
had been there, letters from outside, and the occasional radio
"You can assure him that the
"illegal" sources were more reliable," the reporter told the interpreter. When this was relayed to Laszlo, he replied, "Oh,
I know. As soon as we saw all
the big cars and the nice houses
we knew that the workers could
not be starving."
Laszlo said that he "wants
very much to stay  in  Canada."
Asked what he hopes to do,
lie displayed the slight reservation, confusion, and apprehension typical of all the refugees

Ernest Kretai, a student of
Sopron, who has been here since
Christmas as an advance delegate, told of the disparity of
concern between foresters here
and in Central Europe.
Hungarian forests, he pointed
out, were more "civilized" than
those of B.C. as they have been
in use longer, and arc considerably more sparse. The problem
of foresters in Hungary was to
preserve these old forests, arid
create new- oe.es. placing the
stress  upon   conservation.
The revolution came in the
middle of his final year, and he
will start it over again next Sep
tember at UBC. Ho accepted
this turn of events philosophically,  saying:

Raven' Judged
Not enough experimcntalism!
was the cry of critics at the
Undergraduate Writers' Workshop on Tuesday when would-
be writers sat down to tear
apart the last issue of RAVEN.
John Waterhouse led off the
discussion by decrying lack of
daring in form in the prose.
"The poetry, on the other
hand," said Waterhouse, "is
daring all right, but pretty
This drew the most comment.
Barb Schwenk felt it was
too real-life and detailed to be
a story, but John Waterhouse
pointed out that it "comes to
grip with two human beings,"
and was, as far as he was concerned, the best story in the
INITIATION, the other rape'
story also drew comment, mostly with reference to what each
person had thought the writer's '
intention had been. j
Ted Nicholson understood il!
to be a satire on modern i'ic-j
lion, while Elliott Gose had
taken it to be a satire on the
freshman's willingness to conform to the accepted social
criticized for not being realistic. "People," said Elliott
Gose, may ignore a drunk, but
a pregnant woman? Surely
there is some residium of humanity in most people'.'"

Snobs were judged amiable
and amusing, while The University Life was thought to be
too sentimental to be credible.
Prose, on the whole, however, was thought to be competent, although, as John Waterhouse put it, now is the time
for young writers to be daring
in form and style. A too strict
adherence to the rules stifles
the writer at this stage in his
Poetry came under fire for
its incomprehensibility, and
over-elaborate search for the
unusual phrase or image. Although experimental in form,
the poems were thought to be
confusing and contrived.
Eliot Gose, after pointing out
the predominance of Faulkner,
Thomas and Eliot vocabulary
in Ersatz, asked, "Which is
ersatz, the subject of the poem,
or the poem itself?"
The Sonnet to Rilke, the
most conventional in form,"
said Waterhouse, "is the best."
The art lay-out of RAVEN
was applauded. "I'm glad to
see," said Waterhouse, "that
the gush of nationalism which
took the form of Indian symbols in last year's Ravens has
finally died out."

"RICHARD II" was presented earlier this week in UBC's
Auditorium as a dramatic reading, a presentation that demands much from the actors in the departments of articulation and vocal expression. At times the play suffered from
an absence of these. More often, it suffered from a prolix
script written by one Wm. Shakespeare. To the credit of
the cast it must be added that they often overcame this
latter obstacle. Photo by Peter Graystone

This is, I suppose, any writer's due when that writer attempts to evaluate the performance of an artist, inasmuch as
the initiate of any art form
rarely agree as to their interpretations of any given performance.
However, it is reasonable
to expect. I think, that the alleged initiate be versed in the
fundamentals of grammar, and
that they be acquainted with
the contemporary terminology
of the form to which they profess fealty; to expect, for instance, that they know that
"Us cats" is ungrammatical,
and that thc contemporary term
is "hip," not "hep."
Until such barbarisms may
be iscribed to typographical
errors, and not lack of critical
intelligence or misinformation,
I suppose we shall have to tolerate second-hand opinions
that are rendered invalid
through  ignorance.
