VANCOUVER,   B.C.,   FRIDAY,   FEBRUARY   22,   1957
No. 50
PREMIER V, A. C. RENNE1 i' said toriny in the annval
budget speech to tho Provincial Legislature thai the University of British Columbia would nut leceive any increased
financial resistance from the Piovincial Government, nor
would last year's grant of SID million, to be spread over
ten years, be speeded up in any way.

The Government of British Columbia has chosen to
ignore the needs of UBC. There will be no extension or
enlargement of the present grant, nor any speed-up in the
time it will be granted.
We at UBC will have to condition ourselves to the fact
that there will be no residences for at least six more years.
The Arts Building and the Medical Sciences Building will
be the only new buildings to greet students by 1961. There
will be 12,000 of us by then.
We are unfortunate in this province to have a government that employs the double-standard. Social Credit seems
to be all things to all men.
Provincially, Premier Bennett told those who presented
the brief to the Cabinet that Federal money should come
for education. Federally, Solon Low is doing his utmost to
prevent Federal money from going to the Canada Council
for university endowments and capital construction.
We had hoped that a substantial grant from the government would lead the way for increased donations and endowments from industry to UBC. Now the government has
placed us in the position of asking industry to relieve the
government of its responsibilities.
The only inference we can draw from all this is that
the government subscribes to the ideas recently propounded
by  Herbert  Bruch,  MLA  from  Esquimalt:
•'Education is a privilege, not a right," he said. ''UBC
students have to change their attitude."
However, we will continue to view higher education a.s
the right of anyone with the intellectual capacity to benefit from it.
Social Credit had a chance to remove some of the taint
of its anti-intellectual beginnings at a time when aid to
education was critically  needed.   It  has  lost  that chance.
We wonder if they will ever retrieve it.
UBC's hopes for money from the government were dashed today as Premier .W. A. C.
Bennett brought down the budget, in Victoria, minutes ago.
,     There will be no grants over
ODE   TO   A   PREMIER  and above  the ten  million  dollars   alreadv   granted,   and   this

Students were shocked at the
Government's stand. Second
Great Trek Chairman and President -elect of the AMS, Ben
Trevino expressed t h e disap- ,
pointn.cnt  of the Trek Commit-
\ tee after hearing the  results oi
• the   spoch.
"I  am  very,   very  disappointed." he said, and added,   "I hope
! that   industry   will   not   be   as
\ shortsighted as the government.''
The    Premier    said,    "There
would be  no  increase  in  finan-\
cial aid to t he University as re-,
quested by student organizations
and others."

Says Sorority Laden
Debit or Credit?
This University stands to gain considerable aid from the
Wenner-Gren project in Canada's Northland.
According to Mr. Wenner-Gren, profits from the project
will go toward "philanthropical and altruistic foundations."
President Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie, in viewing the possibility
of aid to the University, stated non committally that he
would "appreciate" any help.
It is true that students are prepared to embrace any organization which proposes to extend aid to them by way of
enlarging facilities of the University.
However they should carefully weigh the possible benefits accruing to the University against the equally possible
costs to the Province.
We are not saying we distrust anyone who wishes to give
us aid. Unfortunately neither can we say we wholeheartedly
thank Mr. Wenner-Gren and wish him a long holiday in
Mexico, at least until we have more information regarding
his project.
At present the project is enveloped in mystery. No clear-
cut stand has been expressed by Mr. Wenner-Gren or his associates or the Provincial Government. We would like to believe that this international financier is philanthropic-ally inclined and not just out to gain material wealth at B.C.'s
But we cannot judge until he or the government stops
dodging justifiably pointed questions by the people who will
tsand to lose or gain by the opening up of the North. We
cannot help but wonder, if this i.s an innocent venture a.s Mr.
Bennett and Mr. Gaglardi would have us believe, why there
is so much mystery about the project.
We cannot understand why the opposition, elected by
the people of this Province, must beg the government for information on the Wenner-Gren project.
We will therefore withold our enthusiasm for financial
aid, and ask the gift-horse to open his mouth.
An Academic Approac
We hail the Academic Symposium as a long-needed institution. At last the scholar may find his niche in student
life at UBC.
Until now he has been frowned on, despised, ridiculed,
or ignored. He was caught in a high-school fervor for never-
appearing to study and not being caught admiring the stacks
of the library. He maintained his status by spending daylight
hours in the clubrooms, on the gym floor, or in the council
When he appiied for an academic scholarship he wrote
his qualifications a.s: "President of the Oogle Society; Publicity rep for pre-marriage organization; member of the Rod
and Gun club." On the last paragraph he would scratch his
If the Symposium maintains an academic approach, delegates may air views on the fact that too much emphasis
is given to exams and too little to education. They may discuss the necesity for more academic discussion groups for
Freshmen, who , just out of high school, are unable to adapt
to University life with its multiple extra-curricular facets
which nevertheless demand a passing grade. They may discuss the senior students' claim for priority on smaller classes,
or the entrance requirements at UBC and the high failure
rate of first and second year students.
They may convince faculty that they have aims that go
beyond achieving popularity and proving  it.
They may initiate something this University is entirely
lacking: an appreciation for education.
Subversives, Sociologists
Are Main Frat Critics
(Editor's Note:—The following selection is taken from a
speech made by Eileen Blain
Rudolph at a Dalta Delia Delta
sorority convention last summer. We print it here to demonstrate a favourite contention
of ours; that defenders of the
fraternity system are usually
hard-pressed for logical arguments, and have to resort io
pseudo - McCarthy tactics in
their place. This is a pity, for
if the fraternity system is going
lo survive, its defenders will
have to do much better than
Mist Rudolph).
Attacks on fraternities are
following a pattern. The first
phase is to force removal of all
membership restrictions. In a
free country, membership in
any organization is a voluntary
Those who band together to
form any yroup have the right
and privilege of determining
what other persons they will
invito to join u ith them. Any
voluntary association can restrict its membership in any
way it wishes — even if the restriction seems silly to others.
For instance, a Dean of Men
at a state university said last
year that it is still a matter of
choice on the pari of the members; if they wis'v they may
choose to pledge only left-
handed men. This might seem
silly, but the test is this: no one
HAS lo join. Those who are
invited to join any group can
accept or refuse —- or, if they
don't like the organization,
they can form one of their
own. To deny to any organization the rijfht to determine its
own membership substitutes
coercion for freedom.
Tho second phase of the attack is to force removal of so-
called   -restrictive   practices."
This means that fraternities
must prove they do not restrict
in any fashion by exhibiting as
members persons formerly uninvited.
To carry this through to its
logical conclusion, fraternities
would have to display members of all sizes, shapes and
colors, of all religious and political beliefs, and of all levels
of scholarship.
Several months ago I heard
a sociology professor say that
the college had the right to call
in any social group and ask
why certain people weren't
members — and the social
group would "have to give satisfactory answers." This fore
ing and coercion of membership would destroy all forms of
voluntary association until all
student life, all social life, is
regimented and controlled'.
The third phase of the attack
on fraternities bans any affiliation outside the confines of the
This makes abundantly clear
the ultimate goal — complete
regimentation. The socialogy
professor admitted this when
he stated that the college must
educate the total student —and
counteract the influence of
Charges leveled against fraternity recommendations are
attempts to destroy the organization or to achieve complete
control, for every free association, club, lodge or fraternity
is perpetuated by members pro-"
posing others lor membership.
Charges leveled against alumnae advisers —- like the slurs
directed at parents — are attempts to capture and mold the
minds of youth without any
outside contact, advice or guidance. What a perfect captive
To understand why and how
these pressures appear first on
one campus and then on another, it is necessary to examine the sources of the attacks
against  the  fraternity system.
Possibly the efforts against
fraternities are aided by a few
di. grunlled fraternity people
or by some who were not invited to join, but I think this
source can be largely discounted.    I   think  of  those  who at
tack fraternities or help attack*
ers in three main groupings:—<
the subversives, the sociology
ical reformers, and the "go«
Because  fraternities  are  organized groups they have been
used as targets in the attack on .
Certainly unrest has been
caused by the resolutions, the
demands, the questionaires, the
editorial blasts. Perhaps this
seems fantastic, but at the University of Colorado this year,
the girl who resigned from her
sorority — with publicity
that it discriminated — moved
into the home of a professor
who admitted membership in
the Communist Party from »
1938 to 1943.
I do not mean to imply that
this professor is still a Communist; I know only that he
told the Jenner Committee he
was a Communist between '38
and '43.
The subversives have had
considerable effect on the second grouping of persons who
oppose fraternities, a grouping
I call the sociological reformers.
These reformers are dangerous because they range from
extreme leftists to impractical
idealists; they include Communist sympathizers, Communist
dupes, some do-gooders, and
some persons of unquestioned
good will. The mischief these
reformers do cannot be easily
undone. The influence is in .
many areas.
The plans of the sociological
reformers are being effected
by the "go-alongers." The attacks on fraternities are symptomatic of the drives for conformity — drives away from
the individualistic point of
view and toward mass man.
The go-alongers are permitting all sorts of controls to be
adopted by saying: "It's coming; it's inevitable so we might
as well go along."
We have a degree of collectivism, welfare statism. controls
which the average person does
not recognize as losr of freedom, loss of individualism, and
loss of true liberalism.

Tie for
These days, there's interest in
Adventure Tours. Every week
or so. somtont comes to th*
Georgia Auditorium, with knee-
boots and lantern slidos, and
takes his audience on an illus-
irated lecture entitled "In
Search oi the Abdominal Snowman in tho Lower Duodenum,"
or "Down the Alimentary Canal
with Qun and Camera."
Many Tie Bar readers, anxious to learn of the wonders of
' far-off places, yet unable to take
time off from their busy business and social schedules, have
asked us to tell of our adventures in the strange and exotic
highways and byways of the
"Tell us of the Christmas Eve
you fought your way to the sixth
floor of the Hudson's Bay on the
'Down' escalator," they plead, or
"Tell of the time that six barbarous engineers set you adrift
in the Little Mountain Reservoir
with only two day's provisions."
"It was really very dull." we
modestly reply. "When our rations gave out, we simply trolled
for sharks, and lived off the
tough but nourishing flesh."
So now gentle reader, come
with us to primitive Duncan, into the steaming depths of the
jungle behind Queen Margaret
School, where the hot heavy
dampness curdles petroleum
jelly in less than an hour. Where
the hash cries of the Wildebeest
and Koodoo shatter the primeval
stillness, and the loneliness
drives men mad.
For two days and nights we
had  been hacking  through  the
dense febrile undergrowth. The
blazing midday sun seared our,
skin, and the native bearers' feet'
were  bleeding  from  the  sharp;
spines on ihe jungle floor. Lesser'
men  would  have   collapsed  or
turned back days ago; but still
we pressed on.
Thirty-two days ago we had
set out from Nome, Alaska, bearing a precious cargo; thirty-two
ampoules of Lydia Pinkhams for
the senior girls at Queen Margaret. Thirty-two days ago, a
gaunt and haggard scout, his
eyes wild and red with fever,
had stumbled into Nome.
"Fever at Queen Margaret's,"
he gasped through cracked lips.
"Bring serum!" I
Heeding his plea, we set out
that  afternoon,  travelling  light,
and fast.   In addition to our pre-j
cious cargo, we  carried only  a
portable dynamo, dartboards, 3
mouse guitars, a fibreglass bathtub,  eight   cases  of  soda-water,:
several gross of Tie Bar ties, andi
back issues of the Readers' Digest from May, 1931.    It was lo
be a spartan safari. I
Thirty-one days of unrelenting
toil put our goal almost within
our grasp. Only one mountain
range remained to be crossed.      |
Hardships had been many and
comforts few, but we were nearly there.
But suddenly our native bearers rebelled. "Bwanas go no
further! Devil man with skirt
and red face dwell in mountain!" I
Persuasion was of no avail.
We shot them and pressed on
alone. i
All at once we came to a big'
clearing in the jungle. We drew
back hesitantly and suddenly the
tall jungle grasses parted and a
red faced man in a tartan kilt
stepped into view. Wo drew back
an.azed. Was this the devil that'
had terrified our bearers? Was
it a man or truly an evil spirit?
"Sir Michael Bruce Bart," it
introduced itself. "But just call
me Mike. I say, you chaps were
not with the Rhodesian Mounted;
Police or the Tenth Bengal Hus-I
sars were you? Your faces look
familiar." \
"We're  with  the   Tie  Bar  of
712   West  Pender,"   we   replied.!
"And we've come with the Pink-;
hams for the girls at Queen Margaret's."
"Jolly good," cried Sir Mike
hoarsely. "Those girls have been
fair doubled up, but that's all
over now that you've arrived.
Come lets have a drink. Will you
join me in a petroleum jelly and
"Delighted," we replied. And
that is how our great adventure

Professor's New Book Blasts
"Selective"  Immigration  Policy
Canada's "selective" Immigration policy has come
under fire in a recent book by
a UBC professor.
David C. Corbett, assistant
professor of political science
at UBC, has written a provocative critique that has set
arguments going from here
to Halifax.
Dr. Corbett, a life time student of the subject does not
approve of Ottawa's "closed-
shop" silence on its immigration policy.
"The Immigration Act of
1932 is so loosely written," he
says, "that in practice the
Minister of Immigration and
his subordinates decide which
immigrants to admit,"
"Canada's true policies,"
says Dr. Corbett, "are probably described precisely only
in Ottawa's unpublished departmental  directives."
The act does not hint at
discrimination against non-
whites, he points out in his
book, "Canada's Immigration
Policy" (University of Toronto Press, $4.00) yet through
administrative decisions, most
Africans and British West Indies are excluded."
"There is a lot of detail
in the departmental directives,
that makes all the difference
in individual cases," he said.
"Thus a Negro with very
little money might be excluded on the grounds that he could
become a public charge," Dr.
Corbett pointed out.
"By the location of its immigration offices abroad and
field decisions on the issue
of visas, Canada sees to it that
most of her immigrants come
from Britain and Northwestern Europe," he said,
The Federal Government is
continually being pressured by
interest groups, Dr. Corbett indicates. "Canada's business interests want more workers
and customers for a larger domestic market, and establsh-
ed immigrants want to bring
over their families in order
to form larger ethnic minority

Dr. Corbett is wary about
"a bigger population for its
own sake." On the other hand,
he does not "see any inherent
value in a small population."
"It would be pleasant to
keep Canada as a natural

favoured few, but I do not

he writes.

"therefore, if Christians are to

the panelists, there was a question session, moderated by Dr.
D. Corbett.
Answering the question of
whether the Nationalist Government or the Communist Government of China was the true representative of the people, Dr.
Ping Ti-Ho ended the discourse
with a startling piece of information pointing out that there
are two million people crowded onto the nationalistic ilsand

A special welcome has been extended to High School
Conference delegates to attend a McMillan Club Waltz Festival at Georgia Auditorium tonight.
McMillan Club officials and Board of Governors member Marjorie Agnew issued the invitations Thursday.
The coourful competition, which this year celebrates the
21st anniversary of the founding of the Sir Earnest McMillan Fine Arts Club, will see twelve dance teams—including
one from UBC—compete for the competition trophy.
Festival begins at eight p.m. Tickets are available at the
door at 75 cents for adults, 50 cents for students.

Girl Crazy
Gershwin's "Girl Crazy," this
year's Musical Society production looks as if it will be a great
success — if the activity of their
publicity man is any indication.
Mussoc has picked one of Gershwin's light but amusing efforts
which lends itself well to a university performance. The story
is certainly not novel but the
easy format allows versatility of
performance and we are expecting Mussoc to do well by it.
The story concerns Danny
Churchill, a playboy. He is such
an expert playboy that his father
sends him to Arizona, to the
Woman-less town of Cuslerville,
to get him away from wine, women and song.

A "short order" Library section, designed especially for
undergraduate use, was proposed by UBC's Assistant Librarian Thursday.
Sam Rothstein, assistant to University Librarian Neil

in the proposed new wing »n the Main Library Building—if
and when that is built.

— 1956 —
This collection of Canadian
university writings of 1956 presents some of the best examples
of undergraduate experiments
within the poetical and short
story forms during the past year.
Once upon a time I solemnly
swore on a stack of Ravens, a
pouch of Piths and a satchel of
sorority pins that Canada's campus generation was incapable of
original, creative thinking. This
was a generalization which must
now be abandoned after reading
"New Voices."
This anthology's contents are
good. It gives us the cream of
the crop." However, what remains is rather tepid skimmed
The definition of realism as it
applies to writing would appear
to he judging by the Raven, an
intricate pattern of monosyllables describing various physiological processes of the homosa-
piens Coupled with this is the
idea that no one worth writing
about should be happy.
Most of the writers in "New
Voices" love gloom, hot weather
and despair. They have put the
sex drive in its proper place.
Biology is not ignored. It is
not, however treated with the
child-like new toy enthusiasm
of a fugitive from an all-girl

pleasant surprise. Experimentation was evident and once in
a while a spark which smelt
faintly of true creative writing
was struck.

obsolescence, he was able to
make the haplessness and despair of thc character an experience as deeply moving as it was
honestly so.
As the parvenu who is at once
sensible of the power of his
newly-acquired wealth and unsure of the social prestige that
accompanies it, Dave Hughes
was consistently excellent. He
was a serf with money who
could not conceive of aristocrats
without it, despite his compassion for them. Anyone who
found this characterization lacking in depth was either asleep
or writing criticism for some
other paper.
Others of the cast deserving
more than routine mention were
Bice Caple, Pamela Rutledge
and Hilda Thomas.
As you may have gathered,
the interpretation of the play,
and the implementation of that
interpretation, met with something more than guarded approval in this corner.

to it by the Ballet Russe de

the tame ballet here, three
weeks ago. Unfortunately, Mr.

as if he was drilling for oil.

it can be called, were not noticeably incompetent, and none

Shown inset are two Dominion Bridge engineers who worked on these major projects:
Above: Donald H. Jamia*on, resident engineer
on the Granville Bridge, shown with erection diagram of structure. Mr. Jamieson,
• 18. (B.Kng. U.B.C.) now plant engineer, has
held positions as field engineer and erection
superintendent ai other important projects.
Left: Claude O. Renaud, field engineer on
the Halifax-Dartmouth Bridge, shown making
final cheek on length ol strands for main cable.
Mr. Henaud, [V3 i B.Eng. McGill has worked in
drawing and design offices and on erection with
the  Company, before and since graduation.
Not long ago Dominion Bridge engineers were engaged
simultaneously in building two of Canada's major bridges—
at opposite ends of the country.
The Halifax-Dartmouth Suspension Bridge, completed in
1955. is the largest to be built in Canada for 17 years.
With its main span of 1447 feet and total length of 4420
feet, it is surpassed only by the Lion's Gate Bridge,
Vancouver (longest in the Commonwealth), also built by
Dominion Bridge.
The Granville Bridge, Vancouver, completed in 1954. is
Canada's first eight-lane highway bridge. Of the cantilever
type, it has an 88 ft. wide roadway between sidewalks and
is capable of handling no less than 4000 vehicles per hour.
Length of steelwork: 1773 ft. Longest clear span: 397' „> ft.
These projects typify the resources and experience of
the company in the field of structural engineering.
Dominion Bridge, an all-Canadian company, is the foremost fabricator in this country of bridges and steel structures.
Less well known is Dominion Bridge's leadership in other
engineering fields. Cranes and other handling equipment, hydraulic machinery, boilers for heating and process steam requirements, mining machinery, refinery towers, pulp mill digesters,
oil well machinery—these are but a few examples of the diversification of Dominion Bridge operations.
To-day, we have the largest and strongest Canadian force
of design engineers in our field. Much of their work is of a
pioneering nature, and they are constantly being called upon
to solve problems connected with large projects in virtually
every  type of industry. Theirs is a never-ending challenge.
oui£ot # ftituAA, wtib DotnmcoK Vricfoe,
Tlu'ie are interesting careers awaiting young civil end mechanical engineers in Dominion Bridge Company Linutul.
With 15 plants from coast to coast, we are now engaged in
