Unanimous  Vote  In  Favor  Cancelled
Americans Solidly Oppose Resolution
Statesmanship was very much in evidence at the UBC's Debating Union last open debate, Thursday noon. Topic of
the debate wa.s "Resolved that the United States cannot be trusted to lead the Western World." The visiting Americans,
on campus for the Evergreen Conference, voted enmasse against the resolution, cancelling the UBC unanimous vote
in favor.

was consequently called a draw,

The Board of Governors met
Monday to hear briefs on the
operating budget from both
students and faculty.
It's decision is.to ask permission of the Governor-in-Council
to employ a provisional budget
with  "some deficit budgeting."
This will include a carry-over
of the past year's committments,
and minimum increases in the
number of staff and operating
expenses, as well as some increase in faculty salaries.
Actual figures of the proposed
deficit budget and of salaries
have not been handed down
from the board. However, they
are expected to be announced
after the next meeting of the
Board of Governors, March 31.

Vrfl II IW I ICJ I I Ubyssey after the meeting:

by V^l Sinp/1       and bringing to the attention of

Ben Trevino, speaking for
Students' Council, agreed that

"I'm glad that the hoard has
decided to ask for authority for
deficit financing," he said, when
he heard of the decision. "This
leaves the problem in the hands
of those who must be aware of
the needs of education and the
problems that must be faced with
definite financial contributions."
A Ubyssey check on thc rumors that at least three faculty
members have resigned in the
last two weeks showed that no
official information is available.
However, at this time of the
year faculty members do inform
the administration of their intentions, so the resignations, if they
are actual, would not necessarily be due to the financial condition of the university, It is
possible, according to faculty
members, that they would occur
in any case; whether or not they
arc a prelude to a larger number
of resignations is difficult to
Christian Science teaches man
that he is ageless according to
Louise Karpen, Christian Science
lecturer who addressed students
in Physics 200 at noon Thursday.
"He (man) is young in spontaneity and joy, mature in discretion and understanding . . .
He knows only the infinite now
of God's goodness and love," she
Mrs. Karpen noted that all
truly great natures have found
strength and consciousness of
security in prayer.
During the course of her lecture, Mrs. Karpen described how
a practical understanding of the
spiritual relationship of God and
man brought healing to a young
boy who was suffering from
deafness caused by absessed ears.
The doctor consulted, said that
the child would never hear again
according to the lecturer.
"This vcrdic t," she said,
"caused the mother to turn to
Christian Science for help and
through the effective prayers
of a consecrated Christian Science practitioner the child was
completely healed  of deafness."

"States Merely A Stopping Place"
1 had the privilege of interviewing one of the world's
leading mathematicians in his
temporary office on campus
Doctor Paul Erdos, a Hungarian-born man with dark curly
hair and a sty smile was sealed
at hi.s table when I walked in.
Ho lirsl told me the actual
facts about himself. He was
born in Budapest in 10111, took
his Ph.D. there in 19114. He
travelled lo Manchester and
received his D.Sc. then came
lo Ihe United States, where he
worked unlit infill.
Dr. Erdos wa.s inviled in

"'( suppose I was impatient,
because I wenl anyway," he
said. I don't like that kind of
thing, whether it comes from
lhe Russians or lhe United
I asked him if lhe government had given him any reason for their actions.
"They didu'l give me any
reason. Bul. they asked me
many questions. "Did you ever

committees? Did I have any

"That last question was
loaded.    How could 1  help bul
say yes9 There are so many
aspects to Communism, one
couldn't dislike them all. So
I didn't answer."

questions asked  him.

Awards — Consolation   Prizes?
Clever Pornography Has A Place
- But EUS Edition Not Clever
We continue to question the basis on
which H6norary Awards are made by both
the Clubs Committee and the Students'
Without wishing to insult or cast reflections on the quality of winners this year
— such is not our intention at all — we
suggest that the present system is not only
inadequate, it perverts the meaning of Honorary Award.
According to the conditions of Honorary
Awards, the HAA is for outstanding service
to the student body and is the highest award
lors who have been outstanding in their
■nade by students to students.
Yet the awards are not given to Council-
work as'distinct from those who have done
a job but no more; nor is it given to outstanding athletes or personalities who have
contributed greatly to the sports department
ot' student activity; nor tu students who are
likely winners of Clubs Awards; nor to past
Councillors unless their outside activities
have been numerous and cannot be considered as relative to their jobs a.s Councillors.
It is supposed that there i.s .sufl'ieionl
prestige in being a Councillor or even in
being a member of an Honorary Sorority
or Fraternity, so that the award would be
superfluous. We have no doubt that role
incumbents at Council meetings feel they
have plenty of prestige, but prestige i.s not
the basis for the award so the argument is
It is further .supposed that outstanding
athletes and club organizers will gain recognition through their own respective bodies,
so granting of J-Ictiorary Activities Awards
should be confined to those who can't win
awards elsewhere.
This way the "highest" award on the
campus is made into a consolation "booby''
Clubs Committee Awards, on the other
hand,  are   presumably   presented   lo   those
who have given outstanding leadership and
service in the field of club activities. Leadership and service suggest that the winner is
of exceptional quality and has been extremely valuable to the club or clubs in question.
Yet awards are made year after year to
persons who have joined many clubs and
can string a long list of memberships after
their names — no guarantee of their value
to any of the organizations. It has even
come to the point where one of the points
on which candidates are selected is "attendance at leadership conference."
Finally, it has become obvious that many
eligible persons, particularly in regard to
the clubs awards, are too humble to dream
of nominating themselves for awards. If
they are to bc nominated, others must do
it — which is as it should be.
But others are concerned only with themselves, and so several outstanding club personalities were omitted from the original
selection list this year. The persons who are
eager for personal reasons to obtain awards
may be (and apparently, are) only too willing to nominate themselves. And the selection committee has often been too hurried
and or disinterested to bother seeking out
names of candidates not nominated.
Frankly, we question award systems of
any sort.
If the value of extra-curricular activity
(and there must be some value in it or why
in heaven's name do so many people imbicle
in it?) lies in the gaining of "a well-rounded personality" anel all the little niceties that
attend such a personality, awards would
seem  incongruous  with   the  activity.
But if the Alma Mater Society i.s determined to Award persons whose personalities
have benefited most by their extra-curricular activity, then at least they should clo it
on a sound working basis of quality rather
than quantity, and according to the intentions of (he award rather than to consolation considerations.
It is not easy to recall an
academic year during which
there has been so much discussion of education. Under
the impact of Sputnik, teachers and professors, pupils and
sludents, Parent-Teachers' Associations and clubs, schools
and the university, the public
in general, all have expressed
concern about our own educational system, both in the
schools and at the higher level.
The panel-discussion on education has become, at least for
some of us, a regular feature of
Because certain impetuous
alarmists have taken the view
that education should forthwith place all its emphasis
upon science and technology,
much of the discussion has
been directed towards a reexamination of the appropriate
place of the sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences in our educational pattern.
Thus the humanist finds himself on the platform alongside
the scientist, each expounding
the values of his discipline —
and each denying the exist-
ence of a dichotomy between
the humanities and the sciences, which, if education is to
bc sound, are complementary.
In our own community the
Academic Symposium a t
Parksville, for many of us,
produced healthy and profitable debate. As a speaker for
the humanities and thc social
sciences, I set out what I believe to be the special contributions of thc humanities to
a liberal education.
T h e humanities, without
claiming a monopoly, attempt
to develop, among other values
the power to make critical and
independent judgments, the
ability to distinguish between
the good and the bad, between
what is right and what is
wrong;     they     cultivate   good

taste and the criteria by which
this may be recognised and exercised; they help to make a
man tolerant of thc views of
others, but intolerant of what
is evil and cheap and degrading. The humanities, by study
of man's ideas as expressed in
literature and art, encourage
the formulation of those standards of conduct that make a
man's life satisfying to himself
and serviceable to and appreciated by others. This is the
essential work of the humanities; this is their vital contribution to a liberal education,
the education that befits a
free man.
These qualities, which, expressed in this kind of language and difficult to measure,
may seem philosophical and
abstract, often arouse dissatisfaction and cynicism among
listeners who are not accustomed to the exposition and
adoption of Ideals in the "practical world." "What," they
say, "do you mean by all these
words? Give us something we

In the last month we have
been provided with two excellent and shameful illustrations
of what I have in mind when
I talk about liberal education
and the humanities. I refer to
those editions of the 'Ubyssey'
published by Forestry and the
Engineering Undergraduate
Society, which (the latter in
particular) contained articles
that violated all canons of
good taste, judgment, and decency.
I do not for a moment believe that the students responsible for these obscenities are
in any way typical of the Faculties which have the misfortune to include their names on
the rolls. What I write is not

smoker will arouse only revulsion upon its repetition to a

in question were not amusing,
not clever, arid not well written. But they reached the
high schools and other universities, Victoria and the rest of
B.C., the press and other parts
of Canada.
Me, A Bum
I do not know of a university in which the students possess so much autonomy as in
the University of British Columbia; nor do I know of a
university in which the students have so continuously justified, by their conduct and
their deportment, the almost
complete autonomy that they
possess on this campus. But
this measure of autonomy demands of its possessors a sense
of *Vesponsibility. Occasionally, a few students demonstrate a lack of that sense and,
by their actions, betray the
university as a "whole before
the public. At the same time,
they invite the authorities, unwilling though they may be, to
step in and impose firm control over student activities.
I have heard it said that the
obscenity of the Engineers' edition falls at a most unfortunate
time in the history of thc University. This is true and yet
it is irrelevant. There is no
time more or less fitting than
any other for wallowing in
This year we have, read in
the "Ubyssey" editorials of
which any university might be
proud. It is tragic that a
thinking editorial staff, which
has displayed such good sense
and judgement and integrity,
fhould have to suffer, albeit
unjustly, for offenses against
good taste and decency committed by a few misplaced adolescents. These "men" will
not understand what is meant
by the qualities that I have
listed above as among the aims
of education, as thc special
concern of liberal education.
Fortunately thc culprits are
few in number.
I understand that the editorial staff of the "Ubyssey" has
in fact liltle control over a
"Faculty" edition, This is a
pity; this is wrong. We have a
choice of courses: (1) firm control must be established at
once; or (2) "Faculty" editions
must be abolished.
At the moment, I feel that
(2) is the obvious course.
So I went home happy as
hell. I saw myself getting married, working a decent job,
bringing up kids, everything.
The ambition was back, I never
knew I'd feel that way. I should
ask girls to marry me more

in the kitchen so I went in to

She said something like:
"She is going to come in to
see me in a minute and I don't
know what to say.",
That didn't mean anything
but I kept listening. Her voice
sounded so clear and everything else very still. She said
some more like:
"I can't look her in the eye.
I'm her mother and she's going
to come to mc, her mother with

TORONTO (CUP) — University students in Edmonton,
Toronto, Kingston and Frecle-
ricton raised identical Canadian flags outside important
buildings earlier this week.
These were the only reported results of a national flag
raising ceremony sponsored by
the Queen's Journal.
The flag was white with a
gold crown on a red back cloth
in the top left hand corner.
The centre was taken up by a
green maple leaf with a gold
beehive in the middle, The
whiteness is to symbolize purity and the beehive to represent industry.
Toronto's flag was hoisted
and the rope cut to make the
lowering difficult.
Edmonton students had lo
deal with two night watchmen
but the flag was raised successfully. Firemen removed the
flag shortly afler noon Monday.
A proclamation nailed to the
flag mast said, "The star and
guiding light of our glorious
dominion prosperity, and the
peaceful path lo world and
solar supremacy."

Birds In Finals Of
BC Playdowns Sat.
When the Thunderbirds  take to the  floor in King Edward gym on Saturday night they
will be facing their toughest test of the season. They will be playing Vancouver Eilers for the
B.C.  Senior A basketball championship.
Fresh  from   their  72-61   win* ~ 	
over defending champion CFUN
on Wednesday night at UBC,
Eilers are now back in the form
that made them unbeatable for
most of the league schedule.
UBC will be making their first
entrance into the B.C. playdowns
since the Olympic trials in 1956
when they fought a tough battle
with CFUN.
Looking at last Wednesday
night's contest, it is seen that
the Birds toughest battle will
be stopping two fellows they
know well. John McLeod, the top
basketball players in Thunderbird uniforms for several years,
and Peter Mullins from the Physical Education staff at thc university make up a tough twosome for Eilers.
In the final game of the playoffs Eilers took a 36-29 half time
Jead and proceeded to run this
up to 54-44 in the third quarter
before they had a bad slump in
their shooting. C-FUN made the
best of this slump to draw to
within two points of the black
aand gold team at 61-59,
Then the turning point came
as Mullins took down three rebounds and fired them down the
floor to John McLeod and Logic
Tail for clean, fast breaks to

log of experience. Tait has one
year of college ball and two
years with Eilers to give the
confidence needed in playoff
Eilers will be using set shot
specialists Jack Lewko and
George Keeley to spell off their
starting pair oi guards.
Experience-may play a large
role in this series as every man
on the Eilers team has many
years behind him with the exception of hustling Ray Gailloux.
I The Birds on the other hand
have a team consisting mainly
of players in their first or second year of senior ball.
First game of the series goes
Saturday evening at 8:30 at the
King Edward gymnasium at
12th and Oak. Students are advised to get to the gym early
as the gym was full for the last
two games of the semi-finals.
This fast breaking disorganized ,
C-FUN so much, that they could
only   hit   for  one   more   basket
during the next two minutes.
Eilers, which present a formidable crew for the Thunderbirds to contend with, have on
the forward line, Mullins and
McLeod, combined with the
1956 Senior A most valuable
player, John Forsyth; 6'6" Don
Krego; three year jump shot
artist Marv Berge, and ex-Mar-
pole stars, Ed Malecki and Jim
In the backcourt division, former Alberni standout Ray Gailloux is currently leading the
attack, and could possibly be
credited with jelling the Eilers
attack in the third and fourth
games of the playoffs. Pairing
off with Gailloux on the starting line is Logic Tait who is
another Eiler with a  fine back-

The UBC ice hockey team still
remains on top of the New Westminster Hockey League after
losing one game and tying another in their last two outings.
The first game, just after the
Alberta series, saw thc Birds
drop a close 5-4 contest to Harwood. With the Birds still feeling the bumps and lumps from
tiie previous losses they just
could not muster the strength
to overcome the opposition. Don
Lauriente scored three goals in
thc match,
Archie Caber's one goal and
three assists helped the Birds
draw a last minute tie with a
hard fighting Briteway team.
UBC, behinci most qf the game,
came up with a quick goal with
less than a minute remaining, to
earn the tie.
Sunday, the UBC team again
takes to the ice against Harwood.

One win against two loses
seems to be a fairly unsuccessful record in a UBC Thunderbird Rugby Tour of California.
However, there is a distinct
silver lining in thc cloud this
The glitter comes from the
fact that the Varsity XV returned home with a six point advantage over the Golden Bears
in the World Cup Competition.
Thc final match of the tour
saw the greatly improved UCLA
rugger team beat UBC by 12-6.
This game was marked by fine
open running — a reversal of
most of the play in the below-
the-bordcr series.
The Los AngelesfXV, bolstered by Jhree Australian players
who performed valiantly at fullback, centre and hook, took a
half-time lead of 9-0.
UBC  cut  this to  9-6  shortly
after the second half whistle.
Winger John Legg picked up
the first points for his team as
he sped 75 yards for an unconverted try. The sure foot of
Gerry McGavin added three
more on a penalty kick.
Although the Varsity squad
was made up of many substitute
players, nothing should be taken
way from the UCLA team. They
deserved to win and the victory
did much to heighten interest
in rugger at the university.
This weekend, about eight
UBC players will take part in
the Possibles vs the Probables
trail game from which the B.C.
All-Stars XV will be picked to
play against the Australian Wallabies a week later. The match
will take place at Brockton Point
on Saturday, beginning at 2:30.
Note—"Thc Wallaby is a timid
fellow who plays in hilly and
scrubby country. Wallabies make
attractive pets."
Fifteen of this species will
covort on the grass of Varsity
Stadium on Thursday, March 20.
Applications for the position of secretary of the
Men's Athletic Association
are to be handed in to Mr.
Bus Phillips or Fil Kueber
before March 11.
