Financing Bad''
Charges Laing
The effects of Bennett's "sordid financial affairs" and "desperation financing" will be felt before long.
Art Laing, former leader of the B.C. Liberal party, gave
this warning in a speech yesterday noon.
The    interests   of   banking,^
he    maintained,    must    come
before those of money in our
government's philosophies, and
we who stay in BC will have to
face, before long, problems
arising out of our government's
"monkeying with our money."
"No government" he continued, "should boom a boom, for
a bust is only an overstoked
That these conditions exist,
not only in B.C. but in all of
Canada, is due to the lack of
emphasis placed by government
today on human decency and
liberty, he said. Along with the
furthering of collectivism and
socialism to gain economic efficiency, he stated, there must
be the advancement of the individual's rights and interests.
Our government must act up-
"on a philosophy, "to equate personal liberty to the collectivism we want," said Laing, not
upon a desire to make ten votes
today and maybe fifteen tomorrow.
The fault lies with the people,
he continued, for their apathy
towards their government's philosophies, policies, and performances.
As a direct result of this public disinterest in BC, our government has resorted to public
relations organizations to reach
the voters.
The message now being disseminated, when stripped of its
fineries, is this: "There's nothing to replace Bennett, except
that terrible Mr. Strachan —
you'll have us, or worse "
Laing also criticized the CCF
party for its present policies.
He said they have made "a terrible mista.ke by inviting the
unions to join them in creating
a labor party.'
The CCF leaders should realize, he said, that Canadian labor
is not socialist, but radically
capitalistic. It is interested primarily in making more and
more and in gaining a larger
hunk of the pie for itself rather
than in furthering the interests
of the small industrialist, who
is losing out to the big business
Mr. Laing gave the timber
industry as a good example of
this controlling of the market
in BC.
In summary he stressed the
need for participation of the
people in their government's
affairs, and the need for a
government with a humanized
Who Dunks
The president of the Forestry
undergrad society, Don Munro,
escaped a dunking in the lily
pond yesterday.
He was rescued and taken
away in a waiting car during a
five minute free-for-all between
the Forestry and Agricultural
students on the library lawn.
As a result of the fall blood
drive, the Aggies supposedly had
the privilege of throwing Munro
into the lily pond.
The Aggies bled to 135 percent of their quota, while the
forestry students only reached
90 percent of their quota.
About twenty-five members of
each faculty took part in the

"The expulsion of the French from Algeria could cause a
serious contraction of Western influence in the world."
Ambassador Guillaume Georges-Picot, head of the French
U.N. delegation, made this statement at a student address on
"Their expulsion could be compared to the Indians asking
the Americans to return home. "Many of the 1,200,000 French
in Algeria have lived there for generations," he continued.
"The army in Algeria was hrf>
a   state   of   frustration,"   said
George-Picot.   "They  felt  that
any   success  in   Algeria   could
not be followed up because of
the lack of responsibility of the
government at home."
The army feels it owes protection to all people of Algeria
who were loyal to the French
during the last war.
"How can the army abandon
people who have fought side
by side with the French?" said
the Ambassador.
"People who want French
government should not be put
under foreign rule," stated
"French sympathizers in Algeria turned to de Gaulle when
it was felt that attempts were
being made to internationalize
the Algerian problem. They
also felt the premier was going
to negotiate with the enemy,"
he said. '
"The French at home were
tired of constant changes in
government," stated Picot.
"The civil servants were frustrated by problems they could-
not solve because of the unstable government," he continued.
"De Gaulle was considered
the only man capable of solving Algeria's problem because
he had the sympathies of Al
gerian rulers. He was also independent from the political
parties at home," said Picot.
"The army was the only at*
ganization in the country with
a unity of purpose," he stated.
This gave the government th*
choice of a "military coup', or
a Popular Front Government
in the hands of the Communists, according to Picot.
As an alternative the govern*
ment appealed to General da
He was not'anxious to coma
out of retirement but he agreed
to draw up a new constitution
if he was called by all national
parties and given full power.
The General requested pei>
mission to present the constitution directly to the people.
The results were 31 million1
votes for, and six and a-half
million votes against, the referendum.
The new constitution gives
added power to the Executive
as in the British and US gov
ernments. By this means they
hope to gain some stability.
The principles of the constitution remain as they always
have throughout French history, belief in the rights of man
and government of the people
for the people, by the people,
Picot concluded.

Why Russia is Ahead in Propaganda
Same Play —
Final Act?
About this time every year, the Ubyssey and the Undergraduates Societies' Committee have a bitter and senseless
f       The battle always starts when the Editor boldly announces
^that for once there will-be no faculty editions of the Ubyssey.
1 This statement usually distresses the presidents of the
various faculties and they become so incensed that they decide
the Editor needs a rest.
When asked why they think faculty editions are necessary
they'parrot words like "tradition", "popular" and "pleasant
relief"; they call the hapless Editor a dictator and/or a tool of
the Student's Council; and then they decide to take matters
into their own hands.
The inevitable result, of course, is that faculty editions regain part of the Ubyssey which begins to function less as a
newspaper and more as an abusive pamphlet.
The functions of a student newspaper should be to inform
its readers and to constructively criticize their actions as well
as those of governmental agencies. These functions are not performed by faculty editions.
If the leaders of USC had ever taken the time to find out
...why Editors despise faculty editions, this 'matter could have
jjbeen cleared up long ago.
The Editor's objections to these pernicious rags are quite
plausible. He is wholly responsible for every word which is
.printed under "The Ubyssey" and he must therefore oversee
Jill faculty editions; as the faculties do not know how to compose a paper, they request the aid of the Ubyssey's staff; and
as explained above, faculty editions are not newspapers and
dV not perform a service to the students.
The solution to the problem, tentatively accepted at yesterday's meeting with USC, is also plausible. Those faculties which
irisist on their own papers, can publish them, providing they
Sfe not part of the Ubyssey, and providing the faculties concerned agree to pay all extra costs.
Before any such editions are published, however, the student body should be allowed to decide whether or not it desires
faculty editions in addition to the Ubyssey.

During the past year, the
frequently repeated proposals
for summit talks proved
to be effective instruments
for dividing the  West.
They were missiles of propaganda warfare rather than
notes of diplomacy, and they
were aimed at public opinion
outside the Communist bloe.
Since the Communists do not
tolerate free discussion at
home, their propaganda campaign for a summit conference
— like all cold war battles —
has been waged upon the territory of the free world.
Because of the Iron Curtain,
Soviet propagandists ra r e
neither responsive nor responsible to an informed public
opinion. They can launch a propaganda campaign with impunity; they need not fear a
"boomerang". For example,
they have been able to go repeatedly to "the brink" of war,
knowing that fear psychosis,
which they hoped to induce in
the West, would not spread to
the Soviet Union.
Without arguing the merits
of specific policies, it is easy
to demonstrate that American
policy makers do not share
this advantage. For example,
President Truman, in a press
conference at the time of the
Korean war, admitted that the
use of atomic bombs had been
considered. His statement triggered anguished protests at
home and abroad. Whether or
not his revelation Was intended
as a propaganda gambit is not
important: The psychological
effect which his statement
could have had upon the enemy
was almost completely vitiated
by the public clamor it provoked.
Indeed, one can argue plausibly that psychological warfare,
in the full meaning of the word,
is incompatible with democratic society in peacetime. Effective psychological warfare requires a measure of deception.
A fundamental tenet of democratic government is that all
policies be subjected to the
scrutiny of elected representatives and the public at large.
It is difficult, to say the least,
to carry out deception in such
circumstances. Thus, it is impossible for the American Government to get the maximum
of propaganda value from its
missile program by reporting
only successful experiments.
The Soviets, by contrast, have
shielded carefully their failures
in rocketry. They have been
able to present, to the world
and to their own people, an unblemished record of successful
Of late, the Iron Curtain has
been raised a little, just enough
to give the Soviet peoples a
glimpse of the outside world.
Yet the Soviet Government has
in no way relaxed its hold upon the levers of public opinion.
For the foreseeable future, Soviet foreign policy is unlikely
to be hampered by the vagaries
of public debate.
(2) Soviet propaganda training. Revolutionary movements
place a high premium on agitation. Any Soviet citizen who
ascends the ladder of the Communist hierarchy must be a propagandist by schooling and inclination.
American leadership is not
subject to the same discipline.
Within our Government structure, policy-making and propaganda are, for the most part,
separate functions. The American propaganda establishment,
consisting of the United States
Information   Agency   and   its
overseas missions, is largely an
adjunct to the policy-making
councils of the American Government. Significantly, the
head of the U.S.I.A. attends the
deliberations of the National
Security Council as an observer
—not as a full-fledged participant.
The Soviet policy maker, a
trained agitator guided by a
taut doctrine and clearly defined policy lines, can quickly
assess the propaganda potential
of any situation and move rapidly to exploit it. By contrast,
more often than not, the Western propagandist takes his cue
from the policy maker and
goes into action only when a
given policy is agreed upon.
As a result, our propaganda is
hard put to it to keep pace
with the rapid tide of events.
(3) The Soviet global propaganda network. National Communist parties and their fronts
serve Soviet propaganda in
several ways. They provide the
basic intelligence on the basis
of .which effective propaganda
policies, carefully tailored to
the particular national environment, can be devised and
implemented. They act as relay stations and amplifiers of
Soviet policy emanating from
Moscow. By infiltrating local
communications media, they
are able to widen the dissemination of  Soviet  propaganda.
An important function of
local Communist parties is to
serve as propaganda proxies.
Through them, the Soviets are
able to hoise "trial balloons"
and to choose between diverse
policy alternatives. Moreover,
Communist propaganda, articulated by national parties does
not commit the Soviet directly.
For example, sporadic threats
of war, when relayed by local
Communist party spokesmen,
tend to me more bellicose than
those contained in official Soviet  diplomatic communiques.
This is not to say that this
highly refined global apparatus always functions smoothly or effectively. There have
been times—when local Communist parties were caught
completely off guard by sudden changes in the international situation or Soviet policy shifts. A classic example
of this was the German attack upon, the Soviet Union
on June 22, 1941, which forced
the American Communists to
abandon overnight their
harangues against President
Roosevelt's "interventionist"
policy. Similarly, the brutal
Soviet suppression of the Hungarian uprising ushered in a
period of confusion among the
European   Communist  parties.
(4) The historic environment. The swelling ideological
currents in Asia and Africa—
nationalism, neutralism, anti-
colonialism, anti-imperialism
and anti-capitalism — are directed against the West. Thus
the West gets relatively small
psychological results in comparison with its expenditure
of effort and resources.
Conversely, the Communists
are able to win allies, stir up
trouble for the West and reap
handsome strategic profits at
low cost. Several years ago,
an Arab official, referring to
Soviet diplomatic support in
the United Nations for Cairo's
blockade of Israel, summed
up the Western predicament:
"One veto by Vishinsky is
worth all the aid of America
and Britain."
Much has been said and
written about the success of
Moscow's aid programs in
winning friends for the Soviet
Union in the under-developed
world. There is no discounting the propaganda value of
Communist "aid with no
strings attached." Yet, as
Joseph S. Berliner has pointed
out in his important study
"Soviet Economic Aid," even
if there were no Communist
economic offensive "we would
still witness the policy of
friendship with the governments of the under-developed
countries . . . Soviet diplomacy would still win friends
in the East at little or no cost
to the U.S.S.R. by the positions it took on international
issues such as Goa."
The Soviets exploit the revolutionary currents which
sweep the Afro-Asian world
in several ways. First, the
Soviet "shortcut" to industrialization sets an example
that appeals powerfully to the
emerging nations of Asia and
Ed. Note: Those who have
been following this informative
article will be pleased to hear

The Fuehrer of that cell of
Fascist reaction, the rowing
team, has impuned the strength
of our People's Democratic Football team. Such knavish statements we accept as exemplifying the decadence of capitalist
rowers. To prove to the uncommitted minds on campus that
football players are of superior
strength, we accept the challenge proffered us. NEXT

of the football players. Be you

Dear Sir:
In reply to Mr. Hermanrud's
letter in last Thursday's Ubyssey referring to the flags displayed in the German Club's
booth on Club's Day, I would
like to enlighten all concerned
regarding the same.
The flags so displayed were
German, and not Belgic as Mr.
Hermanrud observed! For artistic effect, the German flag,
of the Federal Republic, was
laid horizontally and it is rather
difficult for someone unfamiliar with an original national
flag to discern the difference,
especially since the Norwegian
standard is merely a variation
of the Danish.
This paper, I feel, is not a
battleground for past grievances.
I remain,

Following The Birds
If all goes according to agreement, by 4:30 this afternoon,
about 17 Varsity gridders who exhibit their football talents
with off-campus organizations will have official consent to do so.
Because 4:30 is the deadline set for letters of application,
for release of individual players, giving them permission to line
up for junior playoffs.
Ask Permission
According to rules of the CRU, students must obtain written
permission from their College or High School before entering
CRU Junior competition.
Apparently, this wasn't done.
Briefly, UBC Men's Athletic Committee has given players
the green light, providing they comply with the agreement decided on at an emergency meeting this week.
In* future students must report to practices of the Thunderbirds or Jayvees. Only if they are, cut from the teams her*, or
obtain written release no later than October 1, will they be
permitted to join a junior team in the CRU.
WCIAU at Stake
That's the story. It caused particularly North Shore and
Blue Bombers' teams some worry.
It was brought to light because the future of the reorganized WCIAU is at stake.
We also have some responsibility to strengthen the positions of the University of Alberta and Saskatchewan in regard
to their player rights.
The CRU rule governing Junior Series applies across the
country.      v

No Kick From Champagne
' "There stood the champagne,
but you tasted it not" quotes
Fru Rita Allmers reproachfully
to rer husband in Ibsen's 'Little
Eyolf.' Although Ibsen's writings are less like champagne
than like his native Aquavit —
strong, burning and bitter, but
with elevating effect — this
remark might well be directed
to these responsible for the current Freddy Wood production
of this play. With one possible
exception, the east lack the
emotional intensity required by
their author to give convinc-
tion to the otherwise incredibly
concertinaed plot; nor does
Sam Payne appear to have
given the help expected of a
director. Underplayed and misunderstood, 'Little Eyolf strangely resembles a drawing room
«omedy made somewhat uncomfortable by the embarras-
ing instrusion -of Little Eyolf's -
The one possible exception is
Peter Howarth, who, as Alfred '
Allmers, an ex-school teacher
who has married money and
acquired literary pretensions,
hints at the emotion he might
have achieved had his colleagues sparked the necessary
conflict. When the play opens,
Allmers has just returned from
six weeks alone in the moun-
Most of his scenes are played
with Betty Phillips {Fru Rita
Allmers) and most of the blame
must fall on her. Ibsen's Rita is
a woman of great sexual and
social possessiveness; when she
cries to Alfred, 'at last, I should
have you to myself alone!' she
throws her arms around his
neck in passionate embrace;
Miss Phillips cuddles him and
carefully lays her head on his
chest. Throughout, this actress
misses the intensity she is
called on to portray. The disgust with the Rat-Wife, the
distraction of Eyplf's drowning,
the torment of guilt attendant
upon this, the outraged anger
at her husband's comment that
he has married her for her
money: she gives us none of
these. Instead, she turns her
blue-eyed smile upon the audience, inviting them to join her
in rueful enjoyment of human
weakness. Technically, as of
course, Miss Phillips is quite
accomplished; she has a pleasing voice, and a graceful carriage reminiscent, in her floor-
length skirts, of a clipper-ship
under full sail but, to continue
the analogy, develops a definite
list to starboard when faced
with the winds of emotion —
never, as already indicated,
Norwegian cliff-top, but a Dan-
of this production: easy and
natural, and illustrates well a

The writing of Robertson
Davies, playwright, editor, and
novelist, has for some time commanded a respected position in
the field of arts in Canada and
with the publication of two
best-selling novels, Leaven of
Malice and more recently, A
Mixture of Frailties, he has
been accepted abroad as a novelist of the first order.

the reader to the Canadian city
of Salterton, in size and character probably not unlike Mr.
Davies' native Peterborough.

that this country does not provide the stuff that good literature is made of -and that a

is in his depiction of Salterton

insight appear most forcefully.
He presents the whole range of

Currently showing at the
'Vogue', "Anatomy of a Murder" is one of the many recent
Hollywood productions that
continually reminds us that
movies are indeed 'getting better than ever'. Under the capable direction of Otto Premin-
ger, John Traver's recent novel
of the same name has been
successfully adapted for the
screen. To do this, Mr. Premin-
ger has focused on some of the
more sensational aspects of the
book, and in fact, many of the
scenes adopt the Hitchcock technique of sacrificing the truth
for emotional effect. But the
intesified effects are certainly
there, and in a movie that
claims to be a thriller and nothing more, such extravagances
cannot, I feel, be seriously
Briefly, the story is about a
small-town lawyer in northern
Michigan and his attempt to defend an ex-army sergeant indicted on a murder charge. The
defendant shot and killed a
man he believed had raped his
wife — a fact that leads to
much of the courtroom drama
as well as the sensationalism
mentioned earlier.
Most of the characters in the
story are stereotyped — much
in the vein of Earle Stanley
Gardner of Perry Mason fame.
This is not as bad as it seems,
however, for the cast has been
carefully chosen to represent
the various 'types' appearing in
the story. In choosing James
Stewart for the role of the brilliant but easy-going small-town
lawyer untainted by the driving ambitions of the big city,
Hollywood has made a happy
choice. Eve Arden is convincing as the faithful secretary
who with reluctance but with
sympathetic understanding puts
up with the eccentricities of
her 'boss'.
The judge " is admirably
played by Joseph N. Welch,
who became popular with TV
viewers during the McCarthy
trials some years.ago, when he
defended the secretary of the
army. Although one would imagine, that Mr. Welch could not
carry off a dramatic role nearly
as well, in this film his performance is just right.
It seems as invalid to criticize this movie on the grounds
uiat the characters are stereotypes as it is to condemn it for
its sensationalism. After all (as
stated above), the movie purports to be simply a courtroom
thriller designed not for a
permanent impact, but for a
temporary sensational appeal.
What is important is that the
actors are well suited for their
roles, and that the action is fast
moving and seldom fails to hold
our interest.

Adjectives such as striking,
disturbing, luminous, tender,
sardonic can be used as no more
than starting points to describe
the dramatic texture of Ingmar
Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night.
Shown Sunday as the Vancouver Film Society's first 1959
presentation, the winner of the
1956 Cannes Film Festival
Grand Prix is a study in contrast.
Acclaimed as Europe's most
brilliant young director, Bergman has in this film used modern teohriology and his own
photographical inventiveness to
come up with a period comedy
of manners.
Set in Sweden at the turn of
the century, the film dissects
the complex romantic entagle-
rnents of its characters with a
highly contemporary scalpel.
The framework throughout is
lyrical, but within this there is
a wide range: from humor to
violence, from subtlety to ribaldry, from suicidal depression to
the elation of love.
Starred are "Sweden's four
most beautiful women, "Ulla
Jacobsson as a lawyer's unhappy child-wife; Eva Dahlbeck
as an actress who is the lawyer's part-time mistress; Margit
Carlquist as the wife of a count
who vies with the lawyer for
the actress's affection; and Harriet Andersson as the maid of
the lawyer's household.
Conflict, arid violence, cannot help but arise between the
lawyer, the count, and the lawyer's son by a previous marriage, a theology student wro
nevertheless is attracted to his
father's beautiful young wife.
The women's parts are all

r.-.i ~-Dick Hallgren.
Two movements from Henry
CowelFs "Set of Five", and a
Suite for Violin, Piano and
Percussion by another contemporary American composer Al
Hovhaness, were the featured
works in last Wednesday's noon
hour concert, played by Harry
Adaskin, violin, Frances Adas-
kin, piano, and Harold Brown,
The Cowell piece used first
a battery of muted gongs and
then an assembly of tom-toms
as an accompaniment to the
violin and piano. Both movements were lyrical in the extreme, and spoke an extremely
personal and warm language
without the least trace of bogus
The andante especially was
simple and unpretentious, yet
with a complete melodic and
rhythmic control which was
emphasized by the subdued but
meaningful  tom-tom   rhythms.
Cowell's "Two movements"
was played really as a preliminary to the main work of the
program, Hovhaness' "Suite."
Alan Hovhaness is probably
one of the most individual composers alive today. Having been
brought up in a more-or-less
conventional musical genje, he
has since developed an intense
interest in the modal, rhythmic
and instrumental impulses of
his ancestral Armenia, and, indeed, of the East in general.
This in its turn has had an
immediate and profound effect
upon his own art, since his in^
terest in Oriental music goes
far beyond mere curiosity, and
has been the result of considerable study on his part.
His music is in no way a slavish imitation of the cliches of
a folk-art far removed from the
Western idiom. On the contrary, Hovhaness has taken not
so much the content as the
ideals and philosophies of Oriental music, and has used these
to amplify and give form to his
own creative impulses.
It might be suspected that
such an esoteric musical vocabulary would pose serious listening problems for the casual
ear, but this is not the case.
Whatver its philosophical or
musical origin, the music speaks
directly to the listener with assertive rhythms, narrow yet expressive melodies, and combinations of sound which, although
they exploit the most subtle
relations of consonance, dissonance and tonality, have a practical rather than theoretical
The "Suite for Violin, Piano
and Percussion" is an excellent
introduction to the music of
this composer. It is in six short
movements, and exploits the
resources of the violin, the
piano (played normally, and
With a stick), celeste, tam-tam,
and xylophone.
Formally speaking, the music is not complex. The slow
movements especially emphasized a long, weaving cantalla-
tion on the part of the violin,
placed against a firmer rhythmic and melodic impulse from
the celeste. To this, the pian^
and tam-tam interjected colour-
istic effects, especially in the
use of a stick against the low
strings of the piano as a percussive throbbing.
The fifth movement of the
suite is a canon, the melody
thrusting forward (with some
tonal ambivalence) in piano,
xylophone and violin with
strong rhythmic urge, etching a
pentatonic outline which the
counterpoint weaves into a
subtle and exciting, yet always
controlled, web of sound. This
movement attracted the appreciation of the large audience to
such a degree that is was afterwards repeated as an encore.
The work ended with an allegro. This movement whirled
the three instruments together
into a fitting conclusion, with
much oriental melodic and
rhythmic force. As .the ,work
finished, an impression of enormous spontaneity, almost mystical warmth, and innner exhilaration was left with th^e listener.
As Harry Adaskin said in his
introductory remarks: "Sing
unto the Lord a new song. . ."
The work certainly does. Or, as
a rather perplexed co-ed contributed, with characteristic
logic: "Well, at least it's different!"

There is a mistaken impression that this page is the personal property of a small coterie of individuals, and that for

"Don't look back,
something might be
gaining on you!"
Satchel Paige, the ageless Negro pitcher, first
came to fame back in the 1930's when he played
semi-pro baseball. He frequently called in the
outfield and proceeded to strike out the batters in
one, two, three order. He was old then, but in
1953 he was still going strong. Someone asked
Satchel what rules he followed to stay so young
and active.   Here was his reply:
"Avoid fried foods, which angry up the
blood.   If your stomach disputes you, lie
down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
Keep   the   juices   flowing,  by   jangling
around gently as you move.    Go very
light on the vices such as carrying on in
society.   The social ramble ain't restful.
Avoid running at all times.    Don't look
back,   something  might  be  gaining  on
It's that last bit of advice that I like most of all.
If we could train ourselves to plan ahead for problems we are bound to face, we'd all have more
peace of mind and perhaps live longer.
One of the problems you will face eventually
is money for retirement. The NALAC'S Lifetime Income Plan will help you solve it by providing a regular cheque every month of your life,
from the retirement day you specify. If something
happens to you, your family will still receive a
regular monthly income. Your NALAC representative will be glad to explain a plan for your
future that will give you more "Confident Living"
