by disguising himself and one
by  "treachery."
Retiring USC chairman Pete
Haskins escaped the red-shirted

"I was walking across the

Wiley "Jolly Jim" Horseman,
retiring Co-ordinator succeeded
in diverting his captors' attention to incoming Co-ordinator,

Brink reports Horseman as saying.

that it was hoped that "the practise of hiring students will be
expanded in the future".
"More us could be made of
students in such areas of employment as Highways, Public

Lands and Forests", it said.

John Helliwell gave the Treasurer's report for the year,

Chuck Connaghan, outgoing president, also presented an
annual report which will appear in The Ubyssey Tuesday.
This year's Honorary Activity Award winners wera

Incoming councillors were introduced and presented

One controversy that failed to develop was the "oust

The meeting attracted well over the required 1500 students to make the quorum.
Other amendments discussed:
The meeting defeated a proposed amendment which
would have eliminated the Fall General Meeting.
1 Voting on a second part of this amendment separately,
they also defeated a proposal that the agenda for the General
Meeting be closed two days before the meeting.
An amendment proposing that sixty-five cents per active
member of the JVbmen's Athletic Association be provided to
the Association to be 'a first charge on revenues, was passedi
A motion was defeated which deleted Article III of Section 5 of the AMS Code, by which Class A Offices, i.e.,
Students' Council members receive two complimentary
tickets for any social function or activity of the AMS.
Motions regarding new duties of the Treasurer, Secretary, and the Editor-in-Chief of The Ubyssey were passed.
One of the lighter moments of the meeting was provided by the Engineer's motion that a quorum for the
General Meeting consist of 50% of the Engineering Undergrad Socity.
After the defeat of amendments to have the quorum consist of 2 lawyers, or 106% of the Aggie Faculty, or 10% of
the Commerce Faculty, the meeting soundly defeated the
original motion.
The time-honoured custom of throwing outgoing and
incoming councillors into the pond was carried out quite
successfully, despite the desperate efforts of many of those
concerned to avoid such a fate.
The noisiest General Meeting in years exploded Thursday to the tune of Engineer inspired fire-crackers and a
continuous over-head roof banging.
The agenda, by comparison, was fairly quiet with an
Engineer sponsored motion calling for a new AMS quorum
of 50% of their membership providing the only controversy.
Engineers booed, hissed, yelled and threw lunch-bags in
their efforts to demonstrate once again that they are irresponsible hooligans.
The Ubyssey arrived in force, and in costume, carrying
signs demonstrating their family solidarity.
The Engineers arrived in force, in red shirts, to sit awkwardly on chairs and glare at the adjacent Aggies, who
arrived late.

time, to sit quietly supporting the sensible Constitutional

U.S. Pattern  Notorious'
I have seen the best minds of this campus
getting their elbows dirty in the caf.;
they're sad, they're down, they're beat;
nobody gets his laughs in the caf.;
they're getting their elbows dirty
on the long capitalistic tables,
getting their poor beat sables dirty on the tables.
Oh, they sit on broken chairs and shout,
"All of you can go and "
They sit in. pairs on broken chairs, shouting,
"Yes, all of you, go and       .	
I recall times when these played in the sun,
when these had fun, played way out in the sun;
now they tumble, crying in a russianroulette  •
of a poor darkened, A-Bpmb beat world —
oh, there is a tearing of beards, gnashing of teeth,
gnashing of jimmydean ontheroad teeth.
Thopitus!   Awaken us from our poor beat shroud!
Thopitus!   Scold us!   Scald us!   Thopitus!
Return with us, now, to those thrilling days
of yesteryear!   Return the native!   Thopitus!
Thopitus!    Thopitus!    Bang!    Dang!    What!    Huh!
By Dr. Malcolm F. McGregor
I have been sometimes amused (and sometimes irritated) by
statments in the Ubyssey of
the last two years written by
the good Dean and suggesting
that excellent teaching on this
campus is confined to the College of Education.
Perhaps this is idealism at
work, for which reason I have
refrained from comiment; the
fact is, however, that there is
as much of this excellence in
other Faculties (I resist the
temptation to write "the Faculty of Arts and Science',,
which is generally the target);
it is also possible that, like the
other Faculties, the College of
Education has its weaknesses.
M y primary evidence for
what I have written about excellence conies, first from my
• association, with students in my
own classes, and others; this
year I have been deeply impressed by the quality of, the,
students registered in the Coir
lege of Education; my experience at an, American institution, has. been very different.
My second source is my association., with my colleagues
from, our sister College, whom
I find intensely concerned
about education and teaching.
On this campus all of us who
deal with potential teachers
recognise, that we have common problems; I, think we form
a useful and harmonious team!
Some, possibly, are slow to appreciate this; until, we do so,
our students will suffer correspondingly, and, so will the
classrooms in the schools.
I should not want Dean
Scarfe and his colleagues (or
for that matter, my colleagues
in Arts and Science) to think
that I am composing this
article merely to. scratch the
backs of my friends in Education. I, shall venture, therefore,
to address the following remarks to the Faculty of the
College of Education:
(1) You have a magnificent
opportunity, because you are
doing your 'own building, to
create the finest institution for
the preservation of teachers on
this continent; you will never
reach this goal if you. blindly
follow the notorious American
pattern, which is already discredited in reputable circles in
its own country. (This is not
to deny that there are some
good institutions for the preparation of teachers in the
United States.)
(2) Would it not be wise to
make a critical examination of
the objective tests now given
in quantity in the College of
Education? Do they contribute
to the student's knowledge?
Are they not, in many cases,
unthinking adherence to the
p a 11 ern already mentioned?
Are they not a barrier between
the students and the literature
employment of language?
(3>> The Dean and the members of the Faculty of the College have stated several times
that the "emergency" programmes are unsound and send
semi-educated teachers into the
classrooms. If this is the case
(as I believe it is), there is no
excuse for tne maintenance of
such programmes. The time to
abolish them, despite pressures
of one sort or another, is now,
not 1905. An essential quality
of the good teacher is courage
to do what is right.
When the College pf Education came into existence, I was "
among those who welcomed it
Assess Plans Now
The Editor, Ubssey,
As the Ubyssey prepares to
conclude another year's publication, and the fire of your
anti-fee hike campaign turns to
ashes, it would be well to assess now the plans for the
future. Even while we lick our
wounds and rationalize, Satan-
like, that "that strife was not
inglorious, though the event
W'as dire," we must remain
fully aware that this battle lost
Was but the first of what
promises to be a. prolonged
Let us first remember two
important points. The faculty
has not yet received the salary
increase that they justifiably
demand and deserve, and no
one can deny that their financial welfare is of the utmost
concern in the. maintenance of.
a high academic standard. Secondly, the Board o£ Governors'
betrayal, in the recent crisis
points put only too well that
from nPw Gn- students must
prepare, tp go it alone. The
Students' Council wisely fore-
bore at first from pressing our
crusade out o$ the natural expectation that the university
hierarchy was on our side,
would not allow the students
to be needlessly sold down the
river without some measure of
concrete support.
What Mr. Connaghan overlooked (hut it cannot be held
to his discredit) was the extremely awkward position in
which the Chancellor and the
Board of Governors were placed—a position that allows no
compromise. Mr. Grauer and
several of the Board members
hold their positions, not so
much because of academic
achievements, but" rather as tokens of appreciation for the aid
given the university by the
business organizations that
they head. At the same time
these business organizations
must constantly negotiate for
rights and privileges with the
provincial government. Now it
needs no skilfull logician to
point out the hopeless incongruity in trying to aid the university without alienating the
provincial government. Hence
one cannot blame the Governors for their painful silence:
in a conflict between business
ethics and personal integrity
there can be only one winner.
What then should be our future plans? We cannot expect
the faculty to withdraw their
pleas for higher salaries; nor
can we anticipate any change
in the composition of the Board
of Governors. Thus, in the face
of a new h^ppy budget, it becomes obvious that the students face another fee hike
next year, but this time fully
aware that the whole struggle
rests on their shoulders alone,
that is, to be jingoistically trite,
The time to start the new
fight is this summer, not next
spring — and there is a way.
In August, 1960, Pontius Bennett will announce that the
province of British Columbia
is debt free. In September,
1960, he will call a general
election. This summer when
the out-of-town students return
home they must fire the opening salvoes of the forthcoming
campaign. It is up to them to
point out that there are no
contigent liabilities to which
the students' debts can be
transferred. They must start
the political campaigning now,
so that next summer, when
electioneering swings into high
gear, they will have made sufficient inroads to help send a
smiling fascist on his happy
Yours truly,

freshman" and as a result the
frosh orientation programme
produced a net profit of $1,500
this year.
Funds  Help
"However helpful these funds
may be in balancing the budget, I feel that the orientation
fee is so wrong in principle and
practice that it should be eliminated", he said.
Helliwell also recommended
that a free Totem be provided
for each student, stating that the
first step towards this was made
this spring when the graduating
class fee was raised from $7.00
to $10.00 so that each graduating student wiill receive a copy
of Totem automatically.
Reduce   Price
Other recommendations were
that the price of "A" cards be
immediately reduced to $2.50
and that the AMS fee be maintained at $24.00 after the development fund pledge expires
in 1961.
Helliwell said that the extra
$5.00 made available at that
time should be used to provide
a free Totem, a free A card and
a free student directory to each
student, adding that definite
plans should be formulated in
the growing year to ensure that
the funds are used to "benefit
all the students."
In the body of his report,
Helliwell said the AMS Finance
Committee was firmly established as a working part of the financial management of the society. The basic purpose of the
committee is to "investigate and
decide upon financial requests,
many of which in the past went
directly to Students' Council ..."
The actions of this new com
mittee   are  subject   to  the   approval of the Students' Council.

Helliwell said that he was
generally pleased with the results of the jiear's operations
but that he felt some concern
over the apparent lack of overall financial policy for the society.
He added that there are indications that many decisions in
the past have been made "on

What  Pearce  Glory!
It was about this time last
year that Fay Pearce exhibited
her then - current paintings in
the University Art Gallery. Art-
lovers and dilletantes by the
hundeds trooped down to the exhibition, spurred on by the cries
of earlier comers that ' these
were the works of a woman
sexually sick, that they were
perverted, sick, and as well, bad
art. Only a few people stayed
long enough to see that these
claims were as shallow as were
those who made them, that these
works had a vocabulary and
method so different from that
of the Vancouver pleasant-afternoon-painting school that it
would take a lot more than one
viewing before one could decide
as to their artistic worth.
Most of the paintings expressed the relationship of woman
with woman, especially love between them, as that of mother
to daughter, sister to sister,
woman to girl, and so forth. It
is a physical thing in the sense
that one of these will attempt
to cradle' the other, or mother
her, this being the role of the
wjoman who loves. This may not
express itself physically at all,
but only in some conversational
or social way, but if it does, it
is not Lesbianism, for that is the
perversion of it. This love is
very much that of Pilar fdr
Maria in Hemingway's "For
Whom the Bell Tolls"/And it
•was   that   sort   of   relationship
which was the subject of Mrs.
Pearce's exhibition.
The decision as to whether or
not they were good paintings
did not depend upon a moral
issue then, for they expressed
something good, but instead it
depended upon whether Mrs.
Pearce was successful in portraying her subject, which was,
we must remember, not a concrete thing, but instead an idea,
something abstract. Usually in
our time, an artist wishing to
express an idea uses an abstract
form, hoping to capture it more
purely that way than by showing it in concrete subjects, women themselves, and this unfamiliar method caused much of
the misunderstanding. And one
might be reminded that a similar misunderstanding kept Van
Gogh penniless, burned D. H.
Lawrence's work, and laughed
Manet out of the "French Academy.
But all these remarks are preamble to something else, so let
it suffice as judgment upon Mrs.
Pearce that this viewer found
her work for the most part successful, and a few of the canvases really exciting.
This week the Art Gallery has
an exhibition of the paintings of
Robin Pearce, whose collection
has proved equally controversial, although a public conditioned to Pearce characteristics has
not been quite so upset this
time.   Some   have   called   them
Tired of Fort Camp? Want
somewhere warmer to study?
Well, you might try the Auditorium, where Filmsoc is to hold
a wleek - long Charlie Chaplin
film festival next week.
Because Chaplin owns the
copyright on all his films, made
from 1918 on, Filmsoc is forced
to restrict themselves to showing only the Mutual classics.
There are, however, a few exceptions.
Duping or pirating prints has
always been common practice.
Many, people had prints of films
made for their private collections as well as to show commercially. This is illegal, but
Since Ghaplimhas not found
it expedient to release his early
films on 16rnnn.j pirated prints
must beL resorted. to. in .thesse^
cases. As• long as ■ the title is" riot
mentioned!'■ in• advertising,  the
exhibitors (usually film societies)
are safe from legal action.
On Thursday, Filmsoc will be
showing two -ef the most profound Chaplin films, each of
which is 45 minutes or more
long. These are pirated prints,
not necessarily in good condition but certainly the funniest
and most mature "Chaplin's"
ever shown on this campus.
The full programme is as follows:
Monday: Easy Street, The Adventurer;
Tuesday: The Pawnshop,
Wednesday: The Bank, The
Thursday: Titles cannot be divulged for the reasons already
Admission is 15 cents .or by
pass, except Thursday, when admission will be 35 cents, or pass.
"frank" pictures, whatever that
means, and there have been a
few supercilious remarks about
lack of clothing and Puritanism
and sensationalism. Again people are refusing to look at these
pictures for what they have to
say; they cannot learn the vocabulary because they will not
study it for a few- moments.
For in this exhibition Mr.
Pearce has chosen the method
used by his wife, or perhaps it
wias his idea first, that I do not
know, but he has chosen to express ideas in the form of concrete subjects. His portraits are
not portraits of his wife and
daughter who are his'subjects in
the usual sense of the word, but
are an attempt to express what
their present existence is to him.
So the daughter of the portrait
does not look like the daughter
some of us know so much as
like what we felt at adolescence.
The hands in this portrait,
"Adolescence: a Portrait of my
Daughter", are especially moving and expressive of the feeling.
Similarly "The Gentle Dictator: a Portrait of my Wife", is
not so much the Mrs. Pearce we
meet every day, but an expression of what a strong and intelligent woman can be in her
world. These are my favourite
works in the exhibition.
A very interesting problem is
brought into light again by this
exhibition of Mr. Pearce's, that
of the relationship of artist and
model. Remember the poem
"Andrea del Sarto" where the
very existence of Lucrezia kept
him from greatness, where his
Madonnas were marred because
she was so imperfect, and yet
he could afford no other model.
And also Renoir, who in painting Gabrielle, the family nurse,
had for subject sensual feminine
beauty, and no apparent intelligence. Gabrielle's eyes in portrait are usually turned away
from us, or are clouded with
some matronly or gentle emotion.
Now here is a man who has a
subject in his wife who has
much strength and intelligence.
The simple sensual aspects ot
her are not all of her, and so
by reproducing a careful portrait of her he will leave out a
great deal of what she is. And
so he is forced into an expres-
sionistic way of saying what she
is, trying by inference of costume and setting and stance to
express the abstract idea of her.
Has anyone ever noticed the
background of a painting by
Leonardo, Morra Lisa, for example?
As far as technique is concerned, in these paintings I mentioned his brush work is careful
and detailed, his use of colour
startling, even hedonistic. This
use of almost impossibly bright
colour has a vivid aspect comparable to the use of words in
the poetry of Dylan Thomas,
something frightening and almost shocking. His use of red
and blue in intense shades reminds me of the yellows in Van
But the latter used small canvases for the most part, and thus
can be hung not too disturbingly in . one's home. The thing
about Mr. Pearce's works is that
they are huge, larger than life
almost, and would dominate any
room in which they were hung,
They are essentially Gallery
works, and are every moment

The Spring Pla
It has by now been pretty
well mooted about that Charley's Aunt, that old hardy perennial, has been revived once
again, and, wonder of wonders,
still has some entertainment appeal.
Actually, there's no reason
why a situational farce like this
should not revive itself on the
boards from time to time, providing it is not done too often,
and providing the director and
cast are able to bolster up the
old gags with lots of fresh air
and light, and to sustain a fast
pace. Ian Thorne, whose brain
teems with novel ideas, was sure
to provide plenty of new business. The old-fashioned drop-
curtain, and the German band
which provided keynotes
throughout the play, were
strokes of a master mind, to
mention only two of the broader
The fast pace was well maintained by a cast featuring several new names, some with old
faces. Kenneth Kramer, Brighton Rocque . and Jonathon S.
Parkes created real individuals
in the Jack, Charley and Fan-
court triumvirate, and provided
interesting contrasts in temper-
ment. J. S. Parkes must be a joy
to a director, because his brain,

he does not lack the energy to
make them work on the stage.
The energy, together with a perfect sense of timing, make this
actor's performances memorable.
The next phase of J.S.P.'s theatrical career—and he must go
on   in   the  theatre—might   per

Oh  Young  Men
Oh young men oh young comrades
It is too late now to stay in those houses
your fathers built where they built you to breed
money on money — it is too late
to make or even to count what has been made
Count rather those fabulous possessions
which begin with your body and your fiery soul:
the hairs on your head the muscles extending
in ranges with lakes across your limbs
Count your eyes as jewels and your valued sex
then count the sun and the innumerable coined light
sparkling on waves and spangling under trees
It is too late now to stay in great houses
where the ghosts are prisoned
 those ladies like flies perfect in amber
those financiers like fossils of bone in coal.
Oh comrades, step beautifully from the solid wall
advance to rebuild and sleep with friend on hill
advance to rebel and remember what you have   .
no ghost ever had, immured in his hall.
Stephen Spender is an English poet who first came to the atte
tion of the public during the early thirties, when he was
member of the Oxford group; among his better-knov
colleagues were W. H. Auden, Cristopher Isherwood, and
Day Lewis. This group associated itself with the social:
party, and also supported the Republican party during ti
Spanish Civil War.
The advent of the Second World War saw the group d:
solved. Auden, and then Isherwood, took up residence in tl
United States, where they remain to this day. Spender stayi
in England to build a reputation as political commentator ai
social critic, throughi the medium not only of his poetry, b
also of television,and in the pages of 'Encounter', of whii
magazine he is the editor.
Mr. Spender is to give readings from his own work whi

of the  charge of sameness.
It is enjoyable to think at a

Did Not Condemn
The Editor, Ubssey,
Dear Sir:
"The lady doth protest too
much" you will say, but I feel
bound to defend myself from
the barbed analytical fingernails of Miss Slater, who last
issue abandoned herself (and
my article) to a gay and intelligent attack upon-me, who,
she said, "condemned literature on the basis that it does
not picture womanhood according to someone's (my) peculiar
idea of woman and feminine
The point is that I did not
condemn literature. I only asked wihy so few artists since
Shakespeare have presented a
woman whose strengths outweigh her weaknesses, instead
of the other way around.
Of course there are women
whose weaknesses outweigh
their strength, Miss Slater, and
James' and Hemingway's women are no less real because
they are of this type. But the
other kind does exist.
I only wonder why there has
been none since Portia and the
Duchess of Malfi who has
really come to grips with herself and the world and set
herself upon a path of doing
and being right. It can be done,
and I call a person who does
this a person of wisdom.
Now as to the fact that this
sort of person, say, the Duchess
of Malfi, is necessarily stagnant, I protest again. This is
not true, as one quick reading
of Webster's play can show.
This sort of person can be the
subject   of   the   world's   most
moving literature.
No, Miss Slater, I merely
wtas saying that writers have
in general forgotten that a wo-
woman can be strong and right,
and thus wise, and I would like
to have them remember it.
If they were to look around
them they might find one or
two examples right under their
noses, eh, Miss Slater?
Yours, in print,

A  Night At The Opera
ie Opera Players of British
mbia wish to eventually be-

r this might be possible but,
t from a few good perform-
s last Friday evening and
j spectacular dancing by
ild Wright, together with a
group  of  young  dancers,
fell short of their ideal.
y main criticism is with the

the emotional impact of
Basic. Opera should not be
isicat experience alone, but
imaiiic one; and the singers
iiftjHy believe in the chars'; they sing,  and  feel the
emotions they feel. Many top
flight opera singers are excellent actors and actresses but, in
general, acting in opera is pitiful. The acting on Friday night
was not pitiful, but limited, and
with good direction could have
been vastly improved. One realizes the difficulties of casting
from the physical aspect. This
was demonstrated by the difference in height between Lila McCormick, singing Santuzza, and
Joseph Balint, singing Turridu.
The Director could have used
staging tricks to make both
singers and audience more comfortable, by placing Turridu on
steps and levels higher than
Santuzza and having Santuzza
plead from below.
Mr. Balint has a powerful
tenor voiee and was a very convincing Sicilian. He is a singer
of emotional depth. and has excellent technique. His voice is
dear and forward—:unlike some
of the other principals who used
the throat far too. much. I
thought his the best performance of the evening. Miss.Lila
McCormick has a rich soprano
voice—too dark, I felt, for Santuzza. The girl was not young
enough. Miss McCormick did
not bring a lyrical sadness to
the role although she had emotional intensity. Played more
lightly, Santuzza would have
been more sympathetic. She
sang extremely well nevertheless and gave a professional performance.
Miss Katherine Friederick did
not excel as Lola-—a gift of a
part for an actress of the right
temperment. Mama Lucia was
acted well by Miriam Norton.
The voice expressed the character. Alfio, sung by Stanley
Minato, had a great deal of
vitality, but he lacked acting
technique^-the jealous rage was
not convincing. He has a good
voice but is stiff and poses on
.The singing of the chorus was
excellent throughout, but t was
irritated »to distraction by the
manned of their grouping. Here
again I beg for levels. Nothing
is more horrible than thesight
of a chorus line hunched together behind the principals,
staring straight. out into the
audience. It might be permis-
sable in a church choir, but "this
is opera—it means .acting too!
The principals were lost in the
colorful garments and open
mouths of the chorus directly
behind them. Let us treat soloists with  the   respect   they  de-
The overture was badly executed by the orchestra, which
dragged and lacked the necessary vitality. The set was delightful and the lighting as in
"Cavelleria" effectively realistic, almost too realistic in the
love duet between Mila Pash-
kovsky as Konchakoyna and
George Davison, as Vladimir.
One could hardly see their face?.
Moonlight would have become
them. The singing was not of a
high standard in this act,; apart
from the ehprua. Carol Fontaine
sang-the slave girl pleasingly.
The singing of Mila Pashkpysky
and George Davison, although
both have good voices, lacked
passion: One did not really believe they were in love. Robert
McLellan has an excellent voice
and acted Igor convincingly. His
voice seemed muffled and
throaty at times, perhaps due
to a cold? Otherwise, this was
one of the best performances of
the evening. Alex Ustimovich
acted the Khan Konchak amusingly and cleverly, but one was
not as frightened as one would
like to have: been.
I have nothing but praise for
the Polovetsian Dancers, who
danced under the direction of
Madame Lydia Karpova. Gerald
Wright deserves praise particularly* His slave dancer was wonderfully barbaric. All the young
men danced with virile energy
'—a quality so often lacking. The
harem, .dancers were gracefuL
The singers and dancers achieved ^satisfactory rapport and the
rapport of the climax of the
evening had professional polish.

The crack of hardwood against leather. The sprint for
first base — and the spring sport of Baseball is upon us.
Under the keen eye of Coach Frank Gnup, the UBC baseball tryouts have been going through rigid spring training the
past month.
Big event of the UBC ball season this year is the four-day
Tournament to be held in Seattle next week.
From the words of cigar-chewing Frank, one would think
the UBC contingent was in the big time. It appears that at
present no less than fourteen fellows are trying out for the
pitching staff.
A big help for the baseball scene here at UBC is that this
year most of the games will be played before exams. Not like
in past seasons, when Gnup could never tell how many players
were available, because most of the fellows had to get home to
summer jobs.
Another group that has come out with the spring sunshine
is the UBC Track Team. And once again Coach Peter Mullins
has high hopes for his squad in the Evergreen Track Meet
which will be held in May.
Last year the UBC Team picked up a fine reputation in the
Conference Meet in placing well in most of the events and setting a record in the 880 yard race.
Saturday, UBC meets Vancouver Olympic Club and Western Washington in a three-quarter distance Track Meet.
