CCF Join Pro-Cons
To Defeat Liberals
The CCF upheld the Conservatives yesterday to defeat
a Liberal animendment to the Throne speech at the first
session of UBC's Model Parliainentt.
With  CCF   support,  the   Con- • .
servatives were able to pass the
1958 TOTEM
speech through the House despite opposition from the Liberals, Social Credit and LPP.
Four hundred students watched the official opening and the
debate   of   the   Throne   Speech.
The ceremony began vvith the \
election nf Jack Giles as Speaker j
of thc House. '

to appreciate music."
College audieijces are "literate and sharp. We can go all

he says.
DeKnight gave his Rock and
Roll  thesis:
"It was a natural outgrowth,
an exploration. After the Second World War came a musical
revolt. Musicians became interested in improving and ignored
the beat in music.
"Then jazz came to an impasse. The kids found it difficult
to dance to because the beat became hard to define. They looked
around and turned to rhythm and
blues a form of good basic jazz.
'Then as always happens in ; the University of Ibadan, Nige-

Get On The Stick, Council
— Our Food Hasn't Improved
We were not playing a Halloween prank
when we criticized the Food Services Committee here last October 31.
Yet we have heard no word from that
committee, and the students who are appointed to sit with- it although having no
vote arid no decisive voice, have not been
called for questioning about the strong complaints aired here.
This would suggest that the Food Services Committee does not intend to improve
any of the poor services it now supplies,
and is intending to ignore student protests.
The silence and inaction also means
that rtd adequate defence' has been made.
This would suggest that the Food Services
Committee, by ignoring our protests, is admitting that the conditions described in our
editorial of two weeks ago, are true, and or
But all the fault for the existing conditions does not He with the Food Services
Committee. It lies as much with inactive
students and inactive Students' Council.
The Students' Councillors appointed to
the Food Services Committee have had
plenty of time since the printing of the
charges to ask for a frank discussion with
administration and with Food Services
They have done nothing. They spoke
of agreeing with most of the editorial claims,
but they have done nothing about them,
These students were elected by the student
body to represent that body's wishes, ^presentation is much more than waiting for an
invitation to appear before the administration, especially when such an invitation is
so long overdue. It is now up to the Councillors to make a move.
One of the Councillors appointed to
Food Services Committee suggested at Monday's Council meeting that the whole problem of food services be left over until next
January. Presumably he wishes to study,
and wants no interference from his Council
But, much as we applaud those who
wish to study, he has no right to sit on
council as an elected representative unless
he is willing to accept the duties attendent
on his representative position.
No duty could be more important to
the students at this time.
Many students told us they agreed with
the editorial. Many told us that the editorial
had, in fact, precipitated a proposed petition
to the administration decrying the very conditions we described. The petition was
abandoned because the students planning it
hoped that the administration would recognize student opinion in the student newspaper, thereby making a petition unnecessary.
But those students have not backed up
the editorial with letter's'. Perhaps the administration suspects that the editorial was
no more than an editor's attempt to create
a sensation.
That this suspicion is unfounded is
shown in student opinion as expressed to
the editor, but we cannot blame the administration for not recognizing student
opinion when only one letter regarding it
has appeared on this page.
If the students want a better functioning Food Services Committee, they musil
urge their'elected representatives to start
acting.   <
And they must act themselves by putting their criticisms into writing to be printed in this, their publication. Only by these
methods can they indicate their disapproval
to those in a position to remedy the Food
If they are not willing to do this, then
they have no right to expect better service
from the administration committee.

• Many of the needs of this
campus are so Well known as
to be cliches in any discussion of UBC's growth and progress. Both the administration
and the student body have in
the past made these needs
known to the government and
the public in such emphatic
terms that to mention them
here would he pointless. A
monster campaign designed to
procure    for    our    campus
these urgent needs is being
launched, and will give us
all an opportunity to help
achieve the objectives which
include the obvious requirements in buildings, housing,
and operating expenses.
I am here concerned with a
question of atmosphere rather
than physical plant. What
this university needs is its
own Bohemia. At present
there is little of the bohem-
ian about our campus — little
talk; little that provides the
opportunity for the fostering
and expression of youthful
intellectual rebellion arfd eccentricity. The requirements
for my Utopian Bohemia are
comradeship, communal student living, good food and
drink, unlimited availability
of books, and intimate cafe^.

to hear a companion who sits

metal-topped tables militate
against intriguing intellectual-
The Brock and the Bus-

attractiveness, but they, similarly preclude any but the

— weather, women, profs.
And in these dispensaries our
appetites — as well as our
minds — are dulled with the
eternal round of coffee, do-
nuts and pedestrian sandwiches of peanut butter, ham
and devilled egg.
There are thousands of
books on the campus — and
there are thousands of students who never see them,
never learn the sweet satisfaction of browsing. Access to the
library stacks is limited to
a few; the stock and the layout  in the bookstore are piti
fully inadequate. The downtown bookstores are virtually
out of reach.
The comradeship I mentioned we have; the residences
are coming; the annual Student - Faculty Symposium is
fostering closer relations and
friendlier understanding between the students and professors. But for our Bohemia
we still have a long way to go.

ion In South Africa
Not For Everybody
by /aims Mutambikwa -  WUS Exchange Student
It appears certain that education in the Union of South
Africa, as a topic for serious
discourse, debate or public address, will be prominent for
many years to come, in fact for
as ldhg as present conditions
It is comrqon knowledge
among University people the
world over that \he main enemies of fruitful independent
thought, are pre-conceived
habits of thought and the automatic assumption that the ideas
to which one is accustomed,
are the only correct ones. Also
well-known is that there is no
method of removing these preconceptions so effectively than
contact with persons of widely
differing* backgrounds.
According to concepts prevailing in the West, the University aims at the pursuit,
preservation and dissemination of knowledge. It demands
from all those who gather under  its  wings,  absolute  intel
lectual integrity. It prizes
scholarship and research and
attempts to secure the fullest
measure of academic freedom,
the atmosphere tn which experience has shown learning flourishes best. Itl doors should
be open at all times to anyone
who can benefit by or contribute to its teaching.
Yet in the Union of South
Africa today, universities have
been forced into a position
where it is practically impossible to live up to these ideals.
The universities in this country no longer enjoy advantages
which accrue from a heterogeneous student body and
The present Nationalist Government, which is supported
by people called the Boers who
are the descendants of the early Dutch settlers, despite prolonged opposition from university students and staff and
many  other  national  and» in
ternational bodies like UNESCO, has passed legislation
which virtually denies access
to university education to
two-thirds of the , population.
The only education these people can now receive is that
which is designed and restricted to fit them for service in
limited range of industrial and
agricultural activities.
English-speaking universities
in South Africa, in opposing
.this move, have stated that it
constitutes a challenge to the
whole concept of a university.
It is a direct attack on academic freedom.
As Dr. T. B. Davie, the late
Principal of the University of
Cape Town, put it, "It can and
almost invariably does lead,
i nSouth Africa, in opposing
and in particular, is almost inevitably followed by partisan
and indoctrined teaching."
The Students Council of the
University of Cape Town, referring   to   the   heterogeneous
body of students and staff
which existed previously, stated, "As those in closest contact with its every day working, neither staff nor students
have ever had cause to regret
its application."
Thc UN has criticized the
denial of education to the two-
thirds of the population as a
denial of basic human rights to
develop their potentialities to
the fullest possible extent.
1. Type it, damn it!
2. Have something to say.
3. Say it in 150 words or less.
4. Don't waste space with
cliches and "ideas" older than
Premier Bennett's excuses.
The above writer demonstrates these errors admirably.
Utters to the Editor
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
There seems to have arisen
on this campus recently a general feeling of dissatisfaction
with the prowess of our beloved" Birds.
While I don't Wish to belabour the fact that we lost 54-6
to a team from a college of approximately 1000 students, it
does seem to me a little strange
that UBC should accept such a
humiliation with the equanimity or tolerance that it does.
"The game is the thing" or
"Be a good loser as well as a
good winner" seems to be the
prevalent attitude. While this
is admittedly a sound philosophy, the problem is that we
never win. On the contrary,
it took us three games to even
the score against an opponent.
The solution that presents
itself is one that in the past
has been very definitely discouraged, and I think that it
is about time that it was reconsidered.
We should grant athletic
The answer invariably given
light-splashed bottles of varieties of coffee; serving weiner-
schnitzel, roast duck with
fried rice, spaghetti escalope,
bhunda ghust and a host of
other enticing dishes, which,
for two bits, can be washed
satisfyingly down with a large
glass of red wine.
The cafes are small, intimate, and crowded with university clientele, eating, drinking, and talking, talking, talking. Further along are bookshops with open doors and
inviting interiors; there are
tables laden with books 'outside for the casual thumber
and alleys inside crammed
with print for the more extended browse. One can get
lost here among the shelves
without interruption from
clerks trained by Dale Carnegie; bring your lunch take
your time, read your fill!
Everywhere groups gather
— for a party, a meal, a chat,
a brer, a jug of wine, a loaf
of bread and talking, talking! Life is warm and vital.
It is a joy to be alive. The
mind bursts with excitement
among the cheese, wines,
sausages, and talk. The sharing of such experience i:; an
unforgetable and essential
part of learning to think,
learning to live.
I wish there had been such
a Bohemia when I went to
to this is that a university is
primarily a seat ,of higher
learning — a fountain of knowledge not to be contaminated
with commercialized sports,
that, granting sports have their
place in a well rounded curriculum, they should be entirely
voluntary with the greatest
number participating. However desirable this is the general feeling on this campus
has become one of defeatism.
We accept these losses abjectly as an inevitable product
of our athletic policy instead
of a positive belief that we are
superior to our opponents because our teams play strictly
for the love of the game and
need no lucrative incentive.
The athletic program should
be changed at UBC. It has
failed to stimulate and maintain student interest. There
has been no (Ed. note: word
illegible) of student thought
as a whole unless one might
consider apathy and dissasso-
ciation as being such, and the
sense of pride that one should
find in the teams representing
this university, is badly lacking.
If we did inaugurate such a
program there is no reason
why we could not set up academic standards (not as high
as Notre Dame's 75% average
perhaps), that all those individuals qualifying for scholarships would have to meet.
I believe that if this was
done it would not take us long
to reach the calibre (SIC) of
sport displayed by other universities of our size. It might
also encourage some of our
present students to play for
UBC rather than in some commercial league in and around
The unrealistic attitude that
is enforced in this university
today on the subject of commercialized athletics could also
solve another problem.
This year's XMS report stated that $10,000 was to be spent
on football —that the proceeds
from these games amounted to
something like $2,500. In a
city that supports another football team to the tune of 28,000
spectators per game it is rather
obvious that the citizens of
greater Vancouver don't give a
damn about the brand displayed on this campus. There is
no reason why we could not
make sufficient profits to
eventually finance every sporting activity on this campus.
(As well as pay* for the proposed scholarships).
A university in this day and
age must be run on a "big business" basis. The never ending
need for additional funds is

Education Reform?
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
It is probable that the same
spirit of educational dissatisfaction which exists in our university is prominent at the
moment in most Canadian Universities. Granted, some of the
discussion is ho.t air, but some
is useful constructive criticism.
Instead of passively complaining, wou'.d it not be possible
for us all to join together and
do something? We arc supposedly Canada's future leaders,
but even now we can lead. One
suggestion I fiave is this:
If such an elusive quality as
Canadian     culture,   radio   and
TV, are worth a Royal Commission, surely we cart demand
one to look into Educational
Reform and Finance. If we
were to publicize our educational predicament through
the NFCUS and such, I feel
sure the public would support
the idea even if it could offer
only a few suggestions. We
can supply these latter,
(i.e.) Dear Mr. Diefetcetera:
The Universities of Capada
ask you to appoint a Royal
Commission to look into educational reform in Canada.

For a number of years, there
has been a restaurant on Tenth
that drew the majority of the
UBC off-campus trade. Recently
it moved to a new location, a
few doors away from a small
cafe whose cuisine follows a
deadly coffee - and • doughnuts
In spile of ihe proximity of
this smaller restaurant, however,
students continued to cue for
tables in the new, pastel and
arborite confines of their traditional favorite. Business was
bad at the Smaller place: on the
occasions that We passed its windows, there were rarely more
than two customers in the place,
and they had ihe look of those
who have lost control of their
action and just don't care anymore.
The other night, however, we
chanced by and ihe place  was
nearly full. There was a certain
quickness about the movements
of the waitresses, and a feeding
of warmth that had been missing. The answer for the arresting change was quickly apparent;   on   the   wall   facing   the
majority of the seats,  up  high
for  all to see,  was a TV  set,
(stolidly   playing   its   blue-grey i
images before the new clientel.'
And the new clientel, heads high,
eyes    front,    seemed    gently\
pleased with the fare thev had
shunned before, eaten, as it now !
was, in the benign presence of
a reality that possessed a pleas-!
ant unity and purpose, with no
loose ends. j
We continued down the streetj
and turned in at the other place
to find that there were no more
seats there than usual. Which
gave rise to a few nibbling
thoughts: all those engrossed coffee-drinkers ... where did they
come from? Do they ever go
home? If so, how does the management get rid of them? About
the only way we could think
of would be to lift them gently
from the seats by their stiffened
elbows, and propel them, quietly,
backwards out the door. - Once
outside they might linger for
a while, noses pressed against
the cold glass, but, Vancouver
winters being what they are,
they would soon find their way
Another problem: how would
the management select programs
to please every customer? Now,
with a thing like lies, it's different. All you have to do is
drop into THE TIE BAR, 712
West Pender, and pick from the
ever-widening selection of dark
Ivy League stripes. A tie for
every personality, and none oi
them show the coffee stains. Tie
one on and see. But something
like program selection . . .
New Hall Combination
Of Beauty And Utility
For the first1 time, UBC Presbyterian theqlogs will be in the
pleasant surroundings of their
new St. Andrew's Hall.
The $250,000 structure, situated between the Law library
and Union College accommodates about 40 students.
Strikingly modern outside, the
fieldstone and glass conveys an
immediate impression of spaciousness. The slanted, light panelled ceiling, white brick, raised-
hearth corner fireplace and
large planters makes the build
ing appear to .be more a home
than a dormitory  for students.
The individual rooms, each in
a different combination of lively
colors and well furnished, look
out over the sea to the mountains, and the quality of the fixtures and furniture would compare with any private home.
Each of the two floors of
rooms has its kitchenette where
tired students can interrupt their
studies with coffee and  talk.
There is another large room,
soon to be a library, which is
used by law students for group
"It is intended primarily for
Presbyterian students, but only

Students Don't Believe

Shearman said a tape recording of Fry's speech will be played back at a meeting, probably
next week.
Date of the replay will be announced at the club's regular
meeting Wednesday.
"If students get to hear Dan
Fry for themselves then they
will have a more open mind «on
the subject," Shearman said.
"Not all sightings can be passed off as mirages or hallucinations," according  to Shearman.

In Theology
To Be Given
For the fourth consecutive
year the Rockefeller Brothers
Theological Fellowship program
offers to pay for a year's study
to a student who is interested
in the Protestant ministry, but
who has not made up his or her
mind to become a minister. The
Fellowship enables a student to
attend any accredited theological college of his choice in the
United States or Canada. Undergraduates in their senior year
and graduate students are eligible.
At the end of the year's study,
the holder of the Fellowship is
expected to decide whether or
not he or she wishes to coritinue
preparation for the ministry. He
is under no obligation to do so.
Students may not apply directly for this fellowship but may
be recommended for it by some
clergymen, university faculty
members, or other persons. As
in previous years a faculty committee on the campus will interview students interested in be^
ing recommended for this fellowship. These interviews will
be conducted on Wednesday,
November 20, beginning at 3.30

B Ball Season To
Open This Friday
On     Friday    and     Saturday •»
nights at 8 p.m. in the Memorial
Gym,   the     UBC     Thunderbird
Basketball   team   will   play   tin
highly rated Alberni Athletics.
The experienced Alberni squad j
is expected to give the   Birds a
rough time.    The Alberni team !
has   played   nine  games  so   far \
this year and has whipped such
formidable opponents as Eiler'. ■
Jewellers and C:Fun. They 'have!
such outstanding players as El-1
mer Spidell, Canadian Olympic
star; Doug Brimham, Al Brown
and Glen Ennis, a flashy 6' 5"
forward. '       ,
Running Jack Pomfret's sin- j
gle post offense will be Wild
and Winslade as guards; Ste;
phens and Drummond as forwards, and Norris and Levy
fighting for the centre slot.
Newcomers Ed Pederson and
Lance Stephens, both 6' 4" forwards, should help to bolster the
team a great deal.
Thunderbird coach Pomfret,
going into the first game of the
season with an almost completely new team, would not predict
the results of either Friday's or i
Saturday's game. "The outcome
remains to be seen," he said.
UBC Competes
In AAU Meet
A seven-man UBC cross country team will travel to Seattle
to compete in the North West
Amateur Athletic Union Championships.
Coach Peter Mullins expects
UBC to. be in the top three jn
team standings.
Leading the squad will be Jim
Moore and Jack Burnett, who
placed fourth and fifth in the
meet last Saturday.

Chance For
First Win
i     Thunderbird gridders will try
I to   salvage   one   win   in   their
season's record when they face
Seattle  Cavaliers   in   UBC .Stadium, Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
The Cavalier team is sponsored by the Seattle Boys' Club
and is composed mainly of pickup players. They have a fair
reputation, however, and should
provide some competition for
the Birds.
Coach Frank Gnup will have
UBC's Mr. Football, Jackie Henwood, running out of halfback
position for the game.
Henwood, injured at the start
of the season, has only played
two games this year. He thrilled
the fans by scoring two touchdowns and booting a convert
against league-leading Central
Washington Saturday.
The Bird liheup will stay much
the same: ends, Jurgen Von
Schilling, Sivert Erickson;
tackles, Bill Crawford, Roy Jo-
kanovich; guards, Oscar Kreut-
ziger, Tom Toynbee; centre,
George Hoar;' halfbacks, Jack
Henwood, Don Vassos; quarterback, Bill Melville; fullback,
Wayne Aiken.
In all probability, the Birds
will come up with their win of
the season on Saturday.

It has come to my attention that an article on the sports
page of your November 8th, 1957 "UBYSSEY" alleges that
•Kats Rugby Team is well known for "late tackling and general dirty play."
Kats Rugby Club considers the publication of such an
allegation to be untruthful and detrimental to the best Interests of Rugby. While our players seldom have the opportunity to read your newspaper, a number of copies of your
November 8th, 1957 issue "found their way into the Kats'
dressing room before the game between Kats and the Ubyssey
on Saturday last. It is suggested with respect that the pub-
lieation of such an article BEFORE a game shows an unfortunate lack of good taste and a poor sense of sportsmanship.
I might say that after said game a number of UBC players
and a great many spectators remarked that the game with
Kats had been rough but clean. One UBC player apologized
for the publication of the allegation referred to above.
I wish also to advise you that the Kats Club and its players including last year's Howie McPhee award winner, 5
Block B. C. winners, and former UBC players and students,
consider the remarks printed in your newspaper to be an unprovoked insult.
President, Kats Club.
