Council Approves Totem
Decision About Pictures
Students Council decided
Monday night to accept the
policy of tiie Totem Editorial
Board in not printing Under
Graduate Society Pictures in
the Yearbook.
The motion came after heated debate following a motion
by the Under Graduate Societies Chairman that pictures be
It ended in a decision to refund monies to Totem purchasers who were "disatisfied"
because they had bought a
book thinking that their individual pictures would appear
in the Undergraduate Section
as in previous years. Such refunds may be collected at the
AMS office before December 1,
The council felt that although conditions had been such
that advertising for Totem subscriptions at registration could
not be specific on the issue,
some people had bought the
book expecting to see individual Under Graduate pictures
in it. At that time the contract had not been finally made
with the publishing firm, Yearbook House, and no announcement was possible on editorial
Reasons  for  not   printing  tne
pictures are, according to
Norm Pearson, Editor, and the
Editorial Board; thc vast
amount of time taken to compile and plan pages of Under-
Graduate pictures, particularly
as enrollment continues to rise;
and the new contract which
saves the students approximately ten thousand dollars.
Without the pictures, Totem
reasoned, the book can be sold
at an appreciably lower cost.
Further, the Totem Editor
took the heavy job in hope of
producing a "book which would

The Totem Editor stated
that he would not be prepared
to edit a book which is "merely a directory of pictures." He
stated that he could not keep
a talented staff to do work any
secretary could do.
The Editorial Board of all
Publications supported h i s
claim, thereby staking their
own publications work on the
agreement of Council.
Council   agreed,   stipulating
that in future all major policies
of  the   Publications  Board   be
brought lo it before implemen- j
tat ion.
The Editorial Board was
asked to aid the Undergraduate
Societies and the Frosh Committee in producing low cost
annuals of undergraduate pictures comparable to the "slapstick" now being published by
the Applied Science Faculty.
These books would, if desired,
by the undergraduate societies
take the place of individual
pictures of each undergrad in
the Undergraduate Section of
the Totem Yuurbook.
Launching Of   "AAutnik"
Gives  Dogs Their Say
Canadian Dogs Surprised
At   Russian  Achievement
Canadian dogs arise! Your Russian counterparts are gaining world superiority in the race to the moon.
Dogs the nation over have been astonished and amazed
at the Russian species overwhelming advances in the world
race to the moon.
Barry Mather, Vancouver Sun
columnist, quoted his dog in an
interview today as saying, "The
Russians have now invented the
world's first guided muzzle."
Dogs all over the United
States too, have expressed surprise at the recent announcement. Beauregard Houndawg of
the Okenfenokee Swamps stated
that "American man's best
Iriend, the noble dog, has been
bested!" He added however, that
American dogs have been secretly tested for the past few years.
Mrs. West, secretary to SPCA
president Tom Hughes said lhat
the society "deplored the incident very much — much as
they deplore any type of cruelty
to the animal."
She added that "as much as
we deplore this thing that is
being done by the Russians,
there is not much we can do
about it. We have been getting
many calls about this, but nobody has any solution to offer."
An unidentified student remarked that "the reason the
Russians are so far ahead of us
in science is because they don't
have to cope with the SPCA
over there."
Alana Wylie, Arts I, felt that
"He's a lucky dog — others get
killed by chloroform."
Disagreeing, Bill Davis, Agriculture IV, stated that "this situation will pose serious sanitation problems in such close
quarters." Another unidentified
student suggested that the Russians send up a third satellite
containing a fire hydrant to
remedy the situation.
Guy Walters, Arts II (bitten
by a dog as a child) vehmenently
stated that "no one would say
a damn thing if a human was
sent up there."
Ron Kirkby, Arts III, remained: "I'm glad it's him and not

Jack Giles said Monday that

Debating Union president,
Graham Moseley lias announced
that the Union is sponsoring a
debate on this subject Thursday evening in the Law School.
Topic is: Resolved that mankind
has no further use for the American way of life.
The purpose of the debate,
said Moseley, "is to search into
the underlying principles and
ideologies upon which our way
of life is based, and to discover
whether a bnsic overhaul of our
philosophy is required.
"This problem is of such tar
reaching importance and imminent concern to all, that faculty members have shown an
interest and an intent to take
part in the debate."

A Shaggy Dog Story
Once upon a time there were two great
They were great because they had more
businessmen, more complicated commercial
transactions, bigger armaments, better indoctrinated populations, more bitter
factions within the government, more farfetched ideologies both secular and religious, statesmen trained better in dodging
and politicking, and more foolish leaders
than any of the smaller nations which surrounded them as satellites.
With each passing year, their areas of
dominance grew, until naturally enough,
they faced each other as rivals. It was inevitable that the greed and fear of these
two great nations should clash; in B.C.
146 they fought their last fight and the
world of the time saw the end of one of
the e.reat nations: Carthage.
The books about this great empire now
y<luii! thai "the constitution of Carthage;
like her history, remains obscure.' '
The possible excuse given at the time
of the wars between Rome and Carthage
was that their ideologies opposed; that in
fact, the two ideologies simply could not
exist together in the world. Carthaginians
worshipped an oligarchical republic, Moloch
and Baal. The republic gave the people the
idea that they had a say in their government, while the sacrificial rites to the deities
prompted fear and guilt in them so that
they would remain quiet when the heads of
the republic (two in number) announced
new war plans. The Romans entrusted their
existence to a political dictator elected anna; My, ai <! !o tribunals composed largely of
t!ie iioli'e .ta, ivprmscntatives who told
ihe  |mo[)S'  thai   :iir\   m. led   ,11   ;!m   :n!t rests
al   the   |.)!ei)..iu.m
lands  io i..ua'-iUfcr.
!K'uevc;i'  iaey eyed new
One   won   out.  But  what  remains  of
original Rome? Perhaps only a knowledge
of what occurred in those days B.C. The
only advantage they had of the victory was
the right to hand on their history to their
successors. Unfortunately their successors
have learned little by that history.
For in this age of A.S. (after Sputnik)
two great nations (great for reasons that
copy those of Rome and Carthage; even
if possible, enlarge on them) face each other
in the same fashion. In the same way and
with amazingly similar ideologies, and
rationalization? of ideologies, and opiatea
to take away the truth of the ideologies, they
suggest that these two great nations cannot exist together in the world.
There are few differences in the situations. In the old days, Africa, Sicily and
Greece got into the fight and lost part of
their identity in doing so. China and Japan
stayed out and went on undisturbed for
centuries until they too, became "great" in
their own sphere of action. Today few countries can stay out; the Canada's correspond
to the Siciliys: too close to run away.
But why run?
What difference has it made to the
world that such events have gone before?
What difference has it made that nations
have risen and fallen before? What difference has it made that one "ideology"
has won over another? What difference will
it make to generations in the next epoch of
history — in the days of the new calendar
which is bound to be set up at the advent
of some new prophet who claims to love
the world but dislike money-changers?
The only difference in the latest event
in this series that in so many respects seems
similar to the glorous Punic Wars, is that
the anti-vivisectionists have found some-,
thing to justify their precarious existence:
A shaggy dog.
I have been informed that
the underlying spirit of conservatism embodies the principle
that established manners and
institutions are discarded only
when they become anachronisms.
And this principle, it was
pointed out, precludes conservatives from being classified
as either a right, or a left, or
a middle of the road party.
At first sight this information appears rather startling.
In point of fact, however, it is
not entirely incorrect. The
practical application of the
principle means that when conservatives form a Government
they assume the guise of their
predecessors, i.e.: If the preceding Government were socialist
the conservatives would be reluctant to disturb the institutions inaugurated by that government.
In other words the conservatives would be inclined to retain all that their predecessors
had initiated, and to discard
only those institutions beaten
into uselessness by the ravages
of time.
It is only in times of crisis,
such as the thirties, or 'when
confronted with some particularly objectionable manifestation of the existence of their
predecessors, that the conservatives will blaze a new trail
in the forest of political
The conservatives can be
likened to an insect crawling
towards the edge of a table and
every time he nears the edge
he is plucked away and has to
start his journey all over again.
The conservatives are continually crawling towards the right
only to be picked'up by the
electorate and placed in power,
again finding themselves administering policies originated
by their predecessors.
In some respects the operation of their philosophy is not
entirely undesirable. It provides the country with periods
of relative stability, and it provides a mechanism by which
the nation can gradually pass
through the difficult periods of
re-adjustment required to create a welfare slate.
Since every time the Conservatives are elected the left
wing parties scramble to regroup to the left.
In the main the existence of
the pholosophy is unfortunate.
The coming of the Welfare
State, similar to the one found
in Sweden, is inevitable. And as
we are now enjoying a period
of prosperity our steps in that
direction could be accelerated
with a minimum of difficulty.
In a country as rich as this one,
with a population as small as
ours, there can be no justification for any person living in
need. And this underlying
principle of conservatism is
being instrumental in postponing the day when such need
can be catered to.
Letters to the Editor
American Football
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
On Tuesday, October 29, the
issue of the Ubyssey contained
an account of how the American football team, playing in
a minor American conference
lost its umpteenth game by the
ridiculous score of 54-6. No
mention was made of the English rugby team, playing in the
biggest and best league in
North America, won their
game by a score of 16-0. No
mention was made of any of
the other rugger teams that
played either,
Not being familiar with the
editorial policies of The Ubyssey I do not know how much
space is to be allotted to each
sport on the Sports Page. However, I think something is
wrong with a policy which devotes so much space to the
American football team, which
has passed the laughable stage
and i.s almost pathetic, and at
the same time gives little or
no space to the English rugby
team, which is of international
I do not wish to attack American football but if it remains
in its present condition I feel
that a little more stress should
be given to sports that deserve
it, in particular English rugby,
American football has little or
no student support, a losing
tradition and very few participants. On the other hand,
Rugger has a winning tradition.
I have tried to keep my arguments as concise as possible,
but I am quite willing to elaborate on them at any time
given if necessary. I sincerely
hope that you will bear my
point in mind when the football team loses their next game
and the English rugby team
wins theirs, as it has done in
the past and will continue to
do so in the future.
Yours sincerely,
Arts III,
And More Football
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
I wish to heartily commend
D. Vallis (in his letter of Oct.
24) for his realistic outlook on
American football at UBC. At
the present time UBC students
are donating $10.34 to football
for this season alone.
What do we get in return?—
poorly matched games which
UBC students do not wish to
see; and some badly mangled
players as a result of their inexperience and lack of proper
equipment. The players seem
to be doing their best but they
don't have a chance against
other teams whiph have athletic scholarships. This type of
situation doesn't help anyone—
least of all, the University and
its spirit.
We should either get out of
the Evergreen Conference (and
keep out of any other suggested conference) or go all the
way with athletic scholarships
and, or the backing of the B.C.
Lions Association.
American football demands
more than half-way measures.
It is a full-time undertaking.
Therefore, before the budget is
proposed for next year, we
should decide one way or tho
other. Either forget about American football at UBC or keep
it with all its inherent large-
scale necessities and really
make it worth while having.
Something must    be    done
NOW   before  we  continue  to
throw good money after bad.
3rd Year Law
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
What, is this nonsense about
dealing with a Kansas City
firm to publish the Totem?
Here we are pleading with
B.C. firms to give money to
the University for needed facilities, while at the same time
we thumb our noses at those
same firms when contract
awarding lime rolls around. It
takes some nerve.
This mistake, along with the
undergrad   picture   fiasco,   had
better   bo   rectified   forthwith,
or I for one, want a refund.
Yours truly,

Is Our Education Up To Par?
Part II   -   By Gus  Kroll
In order to compete successfully for educational and technical supremacy, this
country cannot afford undeveloped brainpower. And without any doubt, it is evident
that at the present time, a great deal of intellectual ability lies dormant because a substantial part of the population has never enjoyed the stimulation of higher education.
Probably the two main reasons are lack of sufficient funds to go to university and lack
of sufficient interest in studying.
But we must compete for
educational supremacy in order to survive. I believe that
there is only one way open to
do this. We must mobilize the
entire brainpower of our society, or, in other words, we
must make sure that every person shall obtain the highest
degree of education possible.
Of course there are several
ways to reach such a goal.
There are a few which the writer believes to be most effective.
The first problem is to
change our social environment
so that it is conducive to higher learning. This means that
the trends which stagnate education should be removed, and
trends which stimulate education should be introduced.
Now, there are a great number of trends which stifle education. Probably the most important one is the low financial reward that is given to thc
educated person. ' ,
Our teachers are notoriously ,
underpaid, as are most government employees.    Business is ]
apt to pay more, but the secu-j
rity of the job is often much
lower and the rewards paid to
non-academically   trained   per-,
sonncl i.s often higher.
It is by no means a rarity
that a welder or an electrician
makes considerably more money than an engineer. Is it
then surprising if youngsters
today refuse to go to university? By taking a trades
course of a few weeks they
can, in very short time, qualify
for a job that pays substantially more money for a great
number of years than a job
they would get if they go
through university.
We live in an economic society and financial incentives
are powerful forces. And unless we have financial incentives for higher learning, we
will not attract that part of the
population which regards education as a means of making
money; and I have no doubt
that a considerable number of
people belong to that category.
How could tliis be accomplished? Well, we have legislation which fixes minimum
wages. For equally good reasons should it be possible to
fix minimum salaries for certain university degrees. This
can be done by legislation. Nobody denies a union the right
to establish certain pay rates.
So why shall we deny the government the right to fix salaries for engineers, etc?.
Another trend which stifles
education is the low esteem
which is given to the educated
person. Our society glorifies
all kinds of heroes; the war
hero, tiie gangster hero, the
sex and lover hero — btith
male and female — with Elvis
Presley and Jayne Mansfield;
the sports hero and the comic
strip hero; but do we ever hear
about the heroes of science and
other fields of thought?
No. they are conveniently
pushed in the background.
Probably every child today
knows who is on top of the hit
parade. But how many children know who discovered
Penicillin?" We glorify thc
smart Alec because he makes
a big pile of money, and money
is the standard of success. And
it does not really matter how
low the tricks that were used
to make this money. The man \
who devoted his life to an accomplishment that did not
yield a great sum of money is
being smiled at; lie is a rather
pathetic figure, quite often the
subject of dripping novels or
Can this be changed? The1
Russians have done this. There,
the intellectual is on top of
their hierarchy. Tint then
again, the Russians have a dictatorial system of government
which can simply decree thing-,

sonally think that a great deal
depends upon the financial rewards given to the educated
If the scientist is no more a
pauper but a top-paid individual, much will change. It is
certainly not very easy to
change values of a society and
I believe that our esteem for
financial success and publicity
i.s here to stay for a long time.
So why not make the educated
man a financial success; why
not give him the publicity we
give to Elvis' Presley and Marilyn Monroe.
Another way to stimulate
education is by increasing thc
age for compulsory schooling.
Granted, this means that simul-
laenously an effort must be
made to kindle the interest in
education because nothing
would be more futile than a
group of children who are
forced to remain in school, but
desire to leave school. To that
point I will come later, but
here I want to point out that
all these measures must come
simultaenously to be effective.
Such increase of compulsory
schooling does not necessarily
have to be directed towards a
university career; it must also
include trade and commercial
schools, because education
does not stop at the university
Of course it is impossible to
list in the space permitted all
the measures that can be taken
to achieve the proposed object.
But if we are able to remove
the main obstacles and replace
them with sound trends and incentives, a substantial part of
tiie problem will be eliminated,

UBC has received $1500 from
the International Nickel Company for the purpose of establishing a spring counselling and
placement conference.
The grant will enable senior
counsellors from high schools
throughout the province to acquaint themselves with the information on UBC which they
will need to pass on to their
graduating students.
Two representatives of the
Premier Life Insurance Company spoke to council for 20
minutes last night. The representatives, speaking for the
NFCUS, asked council to reconsider its decision not to allow
dissemination of advertising
literature on campus.
AMS president, Ben Trevino,
in reaffirming student council's
stand on the issue said that its
first duty to the students was to
prevent use of the UBC campus
for commercial exploitation.

Inco Research helps Canada grow
These men are examining a "test spool". It is used by
Inco to broaden the knowledge of the effects of corrosion on metals. The spool is made up of a number
of small discs of different metals and exposed to
conditions that cause corrosion in industry... chemical solutions and vapours, for example. At Inco's
laboratories the nature and extent of corrosion of
these specimens is determined. The results are freely
available to industry. Already, Inco has accumulated
in such ways over 150,000 items of corrosion information. And new tests are constantly being made not
only in Canada but throughout the world.
INCO RESEARCH helps fight a billion-dollar
battle against corrosion
Rust is the most common form of corrosion. It is caused most often by the
action of air and water on iron. In
industry, corrosion is caused by many
chemical compounds—acids and alkalies,
liquids and vapours.
In thc repair of equipment, in replacement parts, in the idleness of
machines, corrosion costs more than
six billion dollars a year throughout
the world—probably several hundred
million dollars in Canada alone.
For many years, Inco has carried
on a relentless fight against corrosion
in the plants of many companies faced
with these serious problems, in its
laboratories in Canada, the United
States and Great Britain ... at its
marine testing station in Kure Beach,
North Carolina.
Through continuing research and thc
development of new corrosion-resistant
alloys, Inco helps Canadian industry
save many millions of dollars every year.

UBC i.s not the only university with sports budget difficulties. The University of California Golden Bears, who were
scheduled to play the Thunderbird soccer team at UBC
Stadium on November 30, will be unable to come up for the
game because of financial difficulties,
Last year the Birds went to Berkeley for an exhibition
game and this year the Golden Bears were to return the visit.
However, University of California's projected budget suffered
a severe setback when the football team lost the first four
names and attendance at the games dropped sharply as a

'Birds, who just were not supposed to lose, lost 33-13 to Portland State College in Portland,
Ore., Saturday. They will be
running true to form if they lose
to Central by at least 30 points.
But, as coach Frank Gnup is
the first to point out, Thunderbirds never run true to form.
When they should be winning
they are losing, and vice-versa.
That means they really shouldn't
win Saturday, but because thoy
shouldn't, they probably will,
and if they probably will win,
that means they'll lose — badly.
