Eisenhower's Second Term
Improvements In Store?
The 1957 Legislative session opened in Victoria Thursday,
with the customary pomp and circumstance. The Lieutenant-Governor read the Speech from the Throne outlining
the Government's plans for legislation during the coming
session. But increased aid to UBC was not among the bounty
promised B.C. voters by Premier Bennett's Government, In
fact, UBC was mentioned only in passing.
The natural diappointment which many students must
feel, especially those who worked hard at UBC's "Second
Great Trek" campaign, is understandable, but perhaps premature. Salvation may yet be in the offing, and our Great
Trek Labors may not be in vain.
Before students start damning the Government, they
should wait two weeks, until the Budget Speech is heard
in the House. The Great Trek Brief was presented less than
two weeks before the Throne Speech; this i.s scarcely enough time to prepare in detail for the legislation which the
Brief requested.
Or the Government may be waiting for a better moment
to annonuce a new university aid grant. Past masters at the
art of publicity, the Socreds may be hoping to capitalize on
current pro-university sentiment by making an announcement later, when it won't get lost in the Throne Speech
Another two weeks will almost surely tell whether or
not the Trek has been other than a moral success. Until then,
expression of disappointment—such as the telegram AMS
President Don Jabour fired off to Premier Bennett—may be
ill-advised. At least we certainly hope so.

The Reference Breed of both sexes that mainly and

The continual rustling of index pages which i.s synonymous
with, to put it in terms of vulgar usage, "birdogging" makes
it impossible to refer in the true bookish way to any of the
many volumes that in a wallflower way line the room. It is
a shame that so many books should go without partners and
that so many people should not.

Desmond   FitzGerald.
Arts II.
Whatever the impact of the
second inaugural address on
the world, its impact on the
American press was heavy.
Headlines, editorials and special columns heralded the
speech as a declaration of new
intent, a dramatic break with
tho isolationist economy wing
of the President's party, a bold
new acceptance by the UnitPd
States of the responsibility for
the well-being of a vast portion
of the human race, a call to
sacrifice on the part of thc
American people — all as part
of what the President termed
"the price of peace."
By the day after its delivery
second thoughts were taking
hold of some, who raised the
question of how far the deed
would follow the word, given
the balance of forces within
the administration, given the
skeptical stale of mind within
congress. They pointed out
that members of congress, including those in the President's
own party, to say nothing of
officials   like   Secretary   Hum
phrey, are in an increasingly
negative mood about even
those foreign commitments we
already have, with no enthusiasm whatever about taking on
new ones.
They also pointed out that
the President called for sacrifices at home in order that we
may carry these immense responsibilities in the world
abroad, but that Washington as
a whole reveals a mood of impatience with what sacrifices
we are already making; that
there are few signs of concrete
proposals for belt-tightening
ahead, or of much more than
verbal pleadings with management and labor and consumers
for restraint — pleadings of a
kind that have never yet been
effective brakes upon inflation,
In sum, the second thoughts
of these observers reflected
much doubt that the President
would be able to match in
deeds the vigor and scope of
his words.
But the' scrunity should not
end there. Even those concerned with matching the President's words with the probable events in the future omitted one necessary step; they
seem not to have matched the
words of four years ago with
the events of what was then
the   future.     They   did   not   go
back and study tho first Eisenhower inaugural address. It is
hard to believe that anyone
who had could find any thing
dramatically new in the second.
"No people can live to itself
alone," he said in the second.
"The economic need of all nations . . . makes isolation an
Four years ago he said, "no
free people can for long cling
to any privilege or enjoy any
safety  in economic solitude."
The President's total image
of the world's peril and America's role has not changed at
all. His pledge to the free
world, his warnings to America's enemies, his reminder of
implicit sacrifice to the American people are precisely what
they were four years ago.
It would seem, therefore, a
proper task for those who must
write the first draft of history
—in the daily press—to look
back over these past four
years; to cast an accounting,
and consider whether this administration blunted the peril
in Korea, Southeast Asia, the
Middle East: whether it gave
new scope and drive to our economic programs, or diminished
their scope and drive; whether
it tightened the national belt
in sacrifice or loosened it.
The  Last   Four  Years
Have  Built  A  Prison'
Four years ago this country
had just finished a fight in
which it had the military backing of 16 nations, and the moral support of 30-odd more. We
faced the rising threat of Communism with a solid phalanx
of all the free nations of the
world, and tyranny could find
nowhere a break in the line of
Today the alliance is shattered. In the place where two
of our strongest supporters,
Britain and France, once stood,
there is now, in the Administration's own words, an immense vacuum.
The Middle East is raging
against us. The rest of Africa
and Southeast Asia are snarling. If some outpost, say Formosa, were attacked tomorrow,
what friend of the United
States could spare a single battalion to come to our aid? It
is only too plain that for the
past four years we have been
building only our own prison.
The worst of it is that this
loss has not been balanced by
a single compensatory gain.
On the contrary, in the words
of the second inaugural address, "rarely has this earth
known such peril as today."
Some call it a gain that the
budget has been balanced, ignoring the fact that it has been
balanced at $72 billion, and
that only in case the phenomenal business activity of the
past year not merely continues,
but continues to increase. The
national debt is greater than
it was when we were fighting
for our lives.
The burden of armament,
plus payment for past wars,
swallows all but 22 cents out
of each dollar of the government's  revenue.
There is no margin of safety,
and the slightest setback to
business would be disastrous.
We are more completely fettered today than we were four
years ago.
The tone of the Inaugural
Address suggests that the President is at long last beginning
to realize the truth. It is hard
to recall an occasion when a
country enjoying abounding
prosperity heard such a gloomy pronouncement — and one
is not cheered by remembering
that the President has access to
more information than any
man in the country.
There is here a curious echo
of the way Harding talked in
the first half of 1923, when he
was beginning to be aware of
the abyss that was opening at
his feet, although the public
did not guess it.
Harding's own gloom was
occasioned by the revelation of
the corruption in his own official household, threatening the
political  ruin  of Harding.
Eisenhower's is worse than
that. It is occasioned by the
revelation that his foreign po
licy is not achieving the results
desired, threatening not merely
Eisenhower, but the United
States and the world.
A man betrayed by his trusted friends is a melancoly spectacle, but the tragic spectacle
is a man betrayed, not by vil-
lians, but by the fact that his
best efforts, made in honesty
and sincerity, have not proved
adequate. If some suspicion
that this is the case and is now
creeping upon Eisenhower,
there is no need to look further
for an explanation of his grim
However he has courage, tho
basis of fine statecraft. For
all its solemn tone, the speech
was not a wail. If the President has begun to realize the
inadequacy of the course he
has been pursuing, surely we
may rely on him to change it.
regardless of any embarass-
ment that may attend a confession of error. Two doubts,
however, cloud optimism.
On_> is that Eisenhower may
not realize that the inadequacy
of his course hitherto has not
been its direction, but lack of
vigor in pursuing it when vigor
might bring him into conflict
with some leaders of his own
Thc oilier is his physical ability to sustain a long and gruelling fontest. If Eisenhower will
and can not only hold the office but actually be President
for the next four years, tut
situation may prove to be nor
nearly as bad as many people
suspect. Friday, February 8, 1957

George Nctgle
The 'chief requisites of the
President of the Men's Athletic
Association are that he be familiar With the organization and
the problems of campus athletics and that he have the intelligence and imagination to find
solutions to these problems.
Fil Keuber is just such a
man. Fil h a s
gained a thorough knowledge
of athletic problems at UBC
through being
Secretary of the
Big Block Club,
by playing hockey one year, and of course, a.s
a member of the UBC crew for
the past three years.
His willingness to work for
UBC -cannot be questioned. The
best choice for MAA President
is Fil Keuber.
I am seconding George Nagle
for the position of President of
MAA because his strong participation in University and intramural sports at the Universities
of B.C. and Manitoba has given
him a chance to become familiar
-with the administration of an
athletic association. The fact
that he has a
Big Block and
good scholastic
ability as well
as being levelheaded, concien-
tious makes me
believe that he is
a sound choice
for President of MAA.
Barbara Hart
I suggest Barbara Hart for the
President of the Women's Athletic Asociation because she not
only is interested and active in
the sports programme at UBC,
but  also she lias  the executive
ability which is
nedessa r y f o r
this" position.
Barbara has
played on six
types of Varsity teams which
makes her familiar with every
aspect of the sports program.
Most important, Barb's enthusiasm and good humour will
spread to her fellow workers
and this group will have a most
successful year.

• Member of Women's Athletic Committee, 1956-57.
• Secretary-Treasurer of the
Physical Education Undergraduate  Society,   1956-57.
'• Varsity Orasshockey Team,
two years.
• Intramurals, winning team.
I feel that the experience Pat
has already gained on WAD
and in these other activities
make her the only logical choice
for the position Of WAD President.
Sheila Croker
I am seconding Sheila Croker

of her excellent qualifications.
She served on WUS as Arts Representative, acting as successful
chairman of the annual Fashion

The Lone Proirie
Editor, The Ubyssey:
There are a few kicks I have
about UBC. For instance, you
make a great fuss over having
an 80 percent turnout in your
blood drive. I suggest you compare that with the University
of Saskatchewan last year. We
had, according to the UBC mathematicians formula, 100 percent.
A second instance is your
drive for Hungarian scholarships. The U of S, with only
half the student body, collected over what UBC did.
Check with the "Sheaf" if you
can't believe this. Yet on top
of all this you seem to feel
that you 'have wondorful col«
lege spirit infused no doubt
by your infamous initiation displays. Well, just remember that
U. of S., without help of such
initiations , Greek Row, etc..
could ship out half their spirit
to UBC, and still have more
than you.

Lack of Standards
Editor, The Ubyssey:
"The Ubyssey" has been pretty m u c h of an indifferent
hodge-podge this year, and
much of the time it has been
frankly unreadable due to bad
spelling and omission of keywords. Editorially the paper
has been spineless, the inevitable result of lack of standards.
A campus newspaper should
be, and can be a cohesive influence uniting the student
body and leading it forward
to better things. I am glad to
support, out of my $18 A.M.S.
contribution, such a University element, and also directly
to help "Ubyssey" staffers toward journalistic careers. BUT
you ire exceeding your authority when you sneer at those who
provide you with this opportune y when you call us "apathetic protoplasm sometimes
called the UBC student body."
This is guttersnipe yellow-press
stuff, and the only effect it
can have is lo turn the apathy
inlo aniipatliy. while \ on could,
esc mii- favour and sympathy

What's in a name'.' Often a
great deal more than a casual
glance would indicate.
Take, for instance, Canada
Packers. If you're like a lot
of Canadians, mention of the
name Canada Packers probably makes you think of
MEAT packing. But in reality, saying Canada Packers
packs meat is like saying
Eaton's sells thumb-tacks.
True enough, but far ' from
being the whole story.
You might be mildly surprised to know that Canada
Packers deals in everything
from peanut, butter to leather,
from frozen foods to fertilizers, from tallow to margarine.
Also, feathers, fruit and vegetables, cattle feed, roam rubber, and about 1400 other
products, including of course,
Not very romantic sounding products, these. But someone's got to produce them,
just as someone's' got to produce foundation garments,
logging trucks and nosedrops.
All these products go to comprise the Canadian economy
—and that means they've got
their place, however indirectly, in your life.
And if you happen to be a
Canadian university student,
about to graduate, and wondering where to work, Canada Packers may be in a position to play a much more
direct role in your life. We
refer, of course, to permanent
No one is begging graduates to come and work with
Canada Packers, but a few
facts about CP's personnel policies may interest you whether you're a potential employee or not. First of all,
CP will hire about 120 graduates this year. Naturally,
they're quite interested in Engineers, but they're in the
market for Artsmen and Commercemen too.
Canada Packers, which as
we've noted, deals in a huge
assortment of by-products,
runs on research. A constant
search is conducted to discover new products that can be
made from the same old raw
materials. This means Engineers; also chemists, food
technologists, bacteriologists,
and so on. The Artsmen and
Commercemen are usually attached to the administrative
end of this far-flung enterprise.
The graduate, in consultation with his employers, tries
out in only three or four departments — not all departments, as in some large firms
—during the one-year break-
in period. After that, the
personnel manager and the
graduate get together, and
pick the best department of
the three or four. There's a
host of departments and local
branches, all requiring trained personnel. Lots of room
to rise.
Canada Packers is one of
those firms that doesn't just
pay lip service to progressive
personnel policies; it practises them. A great deal of time
and effort is spent matching
tiie right employee with the
right job. If an employee
likes what he's doing and who
he's doing it with, he does a
better job. So Canada Paek-
i is spends money to bring
this situation about, because
in the long run. it's a sound
investment   for all  concerned
A word about rewards:—-
Canada Packers pays the going rale for graduates, perhaps a little more for someone they want badly. However, they've never paid less
than that. There's an understandable wariness towards
bargain basemen! graduates.
After the initial break-in period, salaries rise according to
Canada Packers has been

Bear  Keeping  Easy
Looking for an easy way to
make money? Try bear-sitting.
UBC co-ed, Gave Newitt, 20,
claims this occupation is easy.
Gave is the friend and companion of Mitzl, UBC's Animal
Nutrition Lab bear whom
Gaye takes for a walk every
week at the end of a dog leash.
Other bears in Gaye's life
included two kinkajou honey
bears whom Gaye tended last
summer in her post as -children's Zoo Keeper down in Stanley Park.
Gaye also looked after spider
monkeys, 30 white mice at
"Mouse Farm," two lion cubs,
"they were easy to handle," —
goats, pigs, racoons, chickens
and skunks at the Zoo.
How didGaye get her job?*
"Well. I went down to get a
pet monkey," Gaye explains.
Co-eds don't usually have
pet monkeys, but a girl who at
one time had 16 cats, four dogs,
seven turtles, six bantams, 14
rabbits, 14 chickens and various lizards and snakes as concurrent pets thinks nothing of
a single monkey.
Gaye's pet of the moment is
"Donnia."   a   small   white   rat,
who  accompanies  her  to  classes,   Donnia's   nine   offspring,
and three cats.
Her next pet, she said, will
be  an   ocelot,   a baby   spotted
jungle cat. "They're only 3 feet1
long   and   great     fun,"     Gaye!
Last Christmas Gaye worked
at the SPCA headquarters look
ing after the kennels. Eighteen
dogs and ten cats kept her very
Despite her pets, Gaye finds
time to maintain a 75ri average in Zoology and Slavonics
Studies, belong to Players'

Gaye graduates next year
and hopes to continue on to a
master's degree in Zoology.
After that she plans to go to
England and visit her relatives.

Jobs for Hungarian Students
Sought by W. U. S. C. Coiftmittee
Finding jobs for  26  refugee
Hungarian students is the major
concern at present of the UBC
World University Service in its
Hungarian student relief program.
"We're finding it difficult to
find seasonal employment for
them," WUSC and NFCUS committee member Joan Irvine said
Thursday. "Finding a job is
their main consideration right
now. They're just learning Eng.
lish, they have no jobs and no
pocket money    of    their own."
She -asked students knowing of
jobs to contact the WUSC committee immediately.
WUSC is looking after the registration of the students, housing
and employment, while NFCUS
has arranged English classes in
the YWCA. Classes got underway Monday with volunteer
English teachers.
Financial assistance will also
be given to the 12 students planning to attend UBC next term,
by the WUSC committee.
WUSC and NFCUS will com-
bine efforts in the fall in organizing and staging an orientation program for the Hungarians
toward campus life.
The two committees are also
planning a party for the students on March 14, the eve of
the Hungarian national revolution of 1948.
The 26 students now in Vancouver and Abbotsford include
some in medicine, education,
chemistry, pharmacy, physical
education, mechanical engineering, architecture, law electronics
and dramatics and fine arts.
Miss Irvine said the committee expects about ten more students to arrive within the next
few months.

Birds Meet Eastern Tonight
Final Conference
Hoop This Weekend
Basketball, fans get their last look at Evergreen Conference basketball this weekend.
In their last Conference home games, the Thunderbirds
meet the Eastern Washington Savages at 8.00 Friday night,
and the Whitworth Pirates at 2.00 Saturday afternoon.
Birds chances received a bad blow this week when starting
guard Barry Drummond was hospitalized. On top of this, Lyall
Levy's sprained ankle is still bothering him, although he is
expected to start. ,    Friday  night    UBC    gets    a
I chance to vacate the Conference
cellar. Eastern is currently tied
with the Birds for that dubious
Coach Jack Pomfret warns,
however, that Eastern are a better club than their record indi-
i cates. They have a top scorer
in   Bob   Burkhart   and   another
I fine shot in R. Banes.
But so far they have been a
hot and cold team. Pomfret
hopes to catch them in one of
their coolish moments.
Whitworth, now second in the
Conference, should be much
tougher. They have a terrific
one-two scoring punch in Marv
I Adams and Dave Martin who
are  averaging     41     points   per
game between them.
| In contrast, UBC's whole team
, has been averaging 49 points.
j But the Thunderbirds have the
I best defensive average, 53 points
j per game, in the Conference.
They will need all this defensive ability to repeat last weekend's win.
Juniors Edge C—Fun

So Lance (the Clam) Hudson, coach of C-Fun hoopsters,
had a surprise for Jayvees Wednesday night, eh?
It wasn't much of a surprise by the time Morgie Mullsie
(he's the brain behind the Jayvees, in other words, the coach)
got his brain cogitating. "Watch that zone press," Morgie told
his boys before the game.
Jack Pomfret's mainstays, is
out of action with a sore leg
for the twin bill this weekend.
Birds face Eastern Washington Friday night at 8.00 and

UBC Shuttlers Invade Victoria
for Annual Badminton Tourney
Nineteen shuttlers travel to Victoria today and Saturday  for  the  B.C.  open  badminton  championships.
The tournament will be held at the Victoria Lawn
Tennis and Badminton Club. Points will be awarded on
individual   performances,   and   not   on   teams'   showings.
UBC placed two men in the finals of the "A" single
series and one in the doubles last year.
Ian Lamont, captain of the mens" team is entered in
the  singles,  doubles  and  mixed   competitions.
They did. And with the help
of Glen Drummond's terrific defensive playing in tying up Bob
Pickell, Jayvees edged by 54-
51 to tie up the best-of-three
semi-finals at one game apiecp.
Bulging Bobby Burtwell, who
practically single-handedly beat
the Jayvees Tuesday, had his
guns silenced by the checking
of Ken Winslade. Winslade also
potted 7 out of 10 free-throws
to bring his night's total to 13.
Glen Drummond and Dave Du-
marsque also got 13.
Eddie Pedersen snared 7 rebounds for his night's contribution.
Experience, wide, C-Fun have
plenty of. probably won't play
such an important part in t he
playoffs. Coach Peter Mullins
and the Jayvees, who are the
youngest, most in-experienced
club in the league, definitely
out-thought   C-Fun   Wednesday.
Ray Gailloux summed up Hudson's troubles with the quote

If Mullins is pacing beside
the bench instead of sitting on
it at the next game, the credit
will go to t he exuberant way
the Jayvees celebrated their victory. The husky hoopsters dragged the lanky Aussie from the
bench and packed him off to the
dressing room. "That wasn't

Jayvees should have a gala
night Saturday when they play
their last semi-final game at
8:30 at the King Ed gym against
C-Fun. The UBC band and cheerleaders and 7000 fans will be out
to egg them on.
Jayvees will be playing with
their backs against the wall and
they'll be fighting. For a terrific basketball game, you can't
beat a team with experience and
polish against one with the driv-
energy the Jayvees display.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE of the exhibition of Eskimo scup-
ture currently displayed in the Anthropology Museum in
tho Library basement. It depicts an Eskimo hunter, his
feet braced against a block of ice, struggling to hold a seal
he has just harpooned. The figures, each about ten inches
long are carved from gray soapstone. The soft full, rounded
lines are typical of this unspoiled, primitive art.

is not tne water-;d-down stage
play or a condensed novel, but
;n original screen play, and.
happily, not debased art in
the wrong medium, but first-
class entertainment in the right
medium. The presentation is
not outstanding— it's impossible to decide whether the
film is intedned as a sex comedy for Tom Ewell and Jayne
Mansfield, an expose of the
popular music industry, or a
personal triumph for Edmond
O'Brien—but   the  material  is.
There are about fifteen musical numbers, most of which
f.re rock 'n roll, and every one
is a peach, There is TomEwell
?nd there's Henry Jones, but
test of all there are Jayne
Mansfield, Edmond O'Brien,
F.nd Little Richard, who belts
cut three of the hottest musical numbers ever to grace a
sound-track—the title song,
But the picture properly belongs to O'Brien and his New
Directions in Comic Bestiality.
His burlesque of the King of
Krime is both inventive and
vital. It's the best thing he's
done since Casca and prefix
well completes his gallery of

Oscar, just as the flick itself
which is one < ;' the few recently to use ihe movie medium legitimately, will be shunned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science.
Bui Art will come into it's
own—but Skouras and Selz-
nick gotta go first.
As for voluptuous Jayne. an
excitable little Frenchman
named Rex who was sitting
near me remarked that he'd
seen some "built broads" in his
day but never before one whose
hips 50-gallon water-jugs could
be balanced. She is quite spectacular scenery, more so than
Monroe, and has a more pleasant voice, and is a much more
adept comedienne, and is a
generally superior product. Xo
Grushenka she—her contours
are a trifle loo . . . ah . . well
. . . exaggerated, but in this
one she manages to overshadow Tom Ewell. Julie London,
and just about everyone else.
Except Little Richard.
The widely acclaimed ''Death of a Salesman" by Arthur Miller—better known as Mr. Marilyn Monroe— is
being presented in the Auditorium tomorrow night by the
Vagabond Players of New Westminster.
This play drew- the unstinted praise of critics when
it opened on Broadway in 1949 and is now established as
a modern classic having, for example, been assigned to
this year's first year English classes—a distinction it took
G. B. Shaw almost thirty years to attain. It is a tragedy;
the tragedy of a man who builds his life upon an illusion. A merciless portrayal of the pressure of modern
life. t
Al Lewis is cast in the role of Willie Loman, the
frustrated salesman. Others of the cast, under the direction of Gertrude Denise are Art Weber and Elie Savoie as
his cynically prodigal sons, and veteran Verlie Cooter portraying Willie's loyal but helpless wife, Lynda. This is
the performance for which Mrs. Cooter won the best sup-
porting actress award in the Regional Drama Festival last

Ever since my gift-giving relatives graduated me from "The
Girls Own Annual," I have been
subjected to a continual shower
of biographies. This has given
me the opportunity to observe
that more words have been
written about Abraham Lincoln
and Robert Burns than any
other men in history.

Ever since seeing "Roma >
Holiday" for the frist time.
I have been as unable lo throw
off the mist of adulation for
Audrey Hepburn that clouds
whatever critical intelligence
I have, a.s I have been completely unwilling; to do so.
Such has not been thc case
with her husband. Mel Ferrar,
who frequently. I think, confuses low-key drama with the
effects of Dramanine,
Anyway, the two of them
were on view Monday night in
a Producer's Showcase production of "Meyerling", a play
whicn has to do with why
the Crown Prince of Austria-
shot himself and his mistress
at Meyerling in 1889.
I confess that it is a little
hard to know where to start
in assessing the production, for
it amountecMo anobject lessen
in whrfit can go wrong wit ft
live television drama. It wain color, which means that reception was fuzzy on black-
and-white sets: the lighting \vm
poor, with shadows of the actors and the mike booms hovering menancingly over t h c
procedings at odd moments:
the set was cluttered, and the
action diffuse, thus all the
unique advantages of televisions intimacy were lost.
The production had other
faults; faults not necessarily
equitable with live T.V. Car
dinal among these was a script
that was hardly a script at all,
if you assume the term to denote some logical sequence of
events to which a theme can
be ascribed in such a way
as to provoke emotional reaction to an experience of some
definable nature. People d i d
things and said things, frequently becoming fairly excited about them, but it a'.]
seemed  pretty  unimportant.
Matters were not helped any
by giving such actors as Raymond Massey and Lome Green
parts   that   were   far   shorter
and had much less possibility
for dramatic impact than that
of the announcer for American
Can.   Miss   Hepburn   was   occasionally able to invoke some
sort   of  magic  from  the   prc-
cbeedings,   but   her   part   wp-
subordinated   to   that   of   Mr
Ferrar,  who looked like a recently-kicked   spaniel   most   ci
the time.
