Grant For
New Chair
The B.C. Association of Real
Estate Boards has made a $50,-
000 grant, to the university for
the establishment of a chair in
real estate. Dean MacPhee of
the Commerce Faculty made the
announcement Friday.
The grant and the courses it
will provide are the result of
five years of efforts by the Real
Estate Boards. Courses leading to
a degree in Real Estate will
raise the standards of qualification for real estate salesmen.
The boards promise "to provide in the abrogate up to $10,-
000 annually for a five year
period to furnish the necessary
support for the establishment
and maintenance of the Chair
in   Real   Estate."
Charlie Brown, chairman of
the education commitWo of the
hoa''d, st:ited, "the course as
proposed is 11:u■ ■ ni;111<• rl in Canada, and as far a.s u e k now in
all of North  America."

Structure, to be built at a
cost of $160,499, was designed
by Professor Fred Lasserre,
head of the UBC school of architecture.
The building will contain a
large games room for dances
and meetings, a large main
lounge and library as well as
other facilities.
It is being furnished by the
Zonta Club who were instrumental in thc forming of the
first international house on the
campus, which was a room in
Acadia Camp.
The new building will have
two levels and a flat roof.
The building will not serve
as a residence. However, officials hope that facilities for
resident students will be possible
in the future.
The Vancouver Rotary took on
Ihe raising of money for construction as a Golden Jubilee
project in lO.ia. They have now
raised the $150,000 that they
pledged at  that  time.
Marpole Rotary contributed to
the club's present site which is
a reconverted army hut on the
east  mall.

Open House
To Stress
75,000 people are expected to
attend the February UBC Open
Ron Longstaffe, Open House
Committee Chairman, told AMS
Council members last night that
the stress will be on UBC "partnership with the community."
Open House, to be held on
Friday and Saturday, February
28, March 1, will point out the
development of University teaching techniques and equipment
over the past fifty years.
Visitors will also be given a
glimpse of the UBC of the future, Longstaffe said.
Members of the legislative assembly, mayors and reeves from
cities and towns throughout B.C.
have already been invited to the
February event.
Longstaffe announced that a
trophy, tentatively called the
Chancellor's Cup, will be awarded to the Faculty or Department
which puts on the best display.
Lectures will be cancelled on

Students have taken to eating
in cars, in the common rooms
and louijges, and while walking
around outside.
Pat Johnson, Ed. I, stated that
she would not attempt to go
into the cafeteria any more because, "I kno,w its always too
crowded to find a seat."
Bob Davies, Arts II, says, "I
eat in the car because there is
no room anywhere else."

A.M.S. At
A Glance
In February the four man
panel of the UBC annual Academic Symposium will face,
the question": What is the
function of the university in
the community, and is the university fulfilling this function?"
The symposium will be held
on February 7, 8, 9 and the
panel will tfe composed of two
faculty members and two students.
Academic Symposium
Chairman Gordie Armstrong
said that the original topic
will be broken down under
six sub-headings.
These are: Ways of improving student-faculty relations;
Lecture methods; Improvement of educational standards;
Specialisation and the need
for a general education; the
value of survey courfes; the
need for religious courses on
the campus.
Commenting on the last
sub-heading, the need for religious courses on campus;
Armstrong said, "The only
way you can find out about
religion on this campus is to
go over to the theologs."
Armstrong went on to say
that while the Symposium
will only involve 100 students
directly, he hoped it might
lead to a larger general symposium open to the whole student body.
Synrrposium  Committee policy as to selection of members is to be announced.

India Going Communist
Tired Of
Democracy's Slowness
People in India may vote for
Communism because they are
tired of the slowness of democracy," according to Mr. K. J.
Charles, South Indian economist.
"It is hard for the masses of
people to believe that Communism would mean curtailment of
individual freedom," continued
Charles, "for, when people are
practically on a starvation level,
freedom seems unreal.''
In India today, two factors
tend to promote the people's interest in Communism, he stated.
The first of these is an increasing consciousness of the
masses, coupled with a demand
for social legislation. This demand for social legislation necessitates an important role for the
Demand for social legislation
leads in turn, to demand for better government.
"Whether India goes Communist will depend on whether the
government can satisfy the desires of the people," said Charles.
In discussing India's increasing interest in Communism,
Charles said that the Indian idea
is  assimilative,   and  that  India
seeks to assimilate the good
points of various cultures, including Russia.
India's present economic policy is based on a combination of
the good features of both capitalism and communism.
In India both state enterprise and individual enterprise
flourish. Though they tend to
work together on many issues,
thc state sometimes has to play
a dominant role because the natural abundance of labor in India makes it impossible for private enterprise to spearhead
technological  progress.
According to Charles, "Technological progress evolves from
necessity to save labor, and
since labor in India is not a
scarce commodity, the state
must intercede to promote technological advances.
Charles mentioned Indian
scepticism of aid from the United States, stating, "What the
United States gives us with one
hand, it takes off with the
"What we need," added Charles, "is not armaments, but economic aid. It is far easier to
help us than to liberate us." fag* 2

Apology — MacLeans Style
This page Friday featured a "Guide to
better letter-to-the-editor writing."
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.
First we must offer our excuse: the
writer of the guide had just finished typing
an almost illegible, poorly constructed and
partly misspelled handwritten letter to the
editor. He did so on the instruction of the
editor and was justifiably frustrated before
he finished deciphering the two-page script.
When he had finished, he'read over the let-
let' and discovered that his work had been
for naught: the letter said nothing.
In a fit of disappointment that a university student should have composed such a
meaningless letter, he scribbled down the
"guide." He did not realize that it would
be taken seriously and inserted in the paper.
It was inserted by a competent layout editor
who felt it was none of his business to question the material of the editorial page.
Unfortunatly none of us caught it before
it rolled off the presses, and even more unfortunately it was placed below an excellent
article written by Jairus Mutambikwa which
was the very essence of brevity and clarity.
We can only say that everyone makes
mistakes, but the ones made by editors are
fnore blatant because they are so ineradicable.
So we offer our apologies. Our apologies
to Mr. Mutambikwa and to the readers of
his article. Our apologies to, Premier Bennett for having said what ought not to have
been said unless backed up by evidence.
''* We understand that not all letters can
be typed, and despite a shortage of staff
we do attempt to type all those which are
not. We do this gladly when the letter-
writer has obviously takerv pains to compose
an intelligent letter which will be of interest to most students.
And finally our apologies to those few
letter-writers who do compose meaningful,
intelligent,  interesting  and   legible  letters.
We also have the option of not printing letters, but in view of the policy to
keep this page as a sounding board we
dislike using this option. Furthermore, if
we were to chuck out all letters which we
feel to be of a calibre only for a mediocre,
metropolitan, mass-circulation newspaper
and not for a university paper, we would
end up with very few letters.
A group of inquisitive artsmen, intellectuals,    pseud o    intellectuals,    English
majors, Exchange scholarship students, lawyers-to-be, and budding politicians, grind
out copy for this paper daily.
'They are trying to set and maintain a
standard of copy that should be suitable for
a university newspaper and interesting to an
intelligent reading public. They are trying
to report on and interpret educational
trends, Russia, Liberalism, Socialism, Con-
servativism, unionism, Socredism, internationalism, Industrialism, and other isms too
. numerous to mention. *
They do this because they hope that
students are vitally interested in the international scene which could at any moment
change the course of their lives; with the
national scene which they .are. in part responsible for; with the industrial scene into
wheh many of them will go after graduation;
with the local scene of which they are
doomed to be a part; with educational trends
which are currently influencing their way
of life; and with the affairs of the countries
from which their fellow-students come on
WUS scholarships to teach the virtues of
A few excellent letters sometimes constitute their reward. Some of the readers
request more space than the allotted 150
words, and when their topic is of interest to *
students, commenting on or adding to
articles already printed, permission is readily granted".
But for the most part the letter writers
concern themselves with such issues as: tho
Homecoming parade, the color of Engineer's
shirts, sports cars, hazing, the bust measurements of Frosh Queens, how to win at football, and sex in the Ubyssey.
We rationalize that the Homecoming
parade is, after all, closely connected with
the industrial scene; the color of Engineers'
shirts, with the international scene; sports
cars with Liberalism and the national scene;
football with peaceful co-existence; hazing
with the union scene; sex with the local
scene, and bust measurements with any
If these letters represent the thought of
students at this university, we are in full
sympathy with the writer of the "Guide."
We feel his frustration and we share his
, disappointment; and we congratulate him
on his honesty. We feel that we're wasting
our time encouraging informed writers to
contribute thought-provoking articles to this
page. We may well hire a secretary to type
out' "tween classes" and leave it at that.
If they do not represent the thought of
students at this university, we wish to
heck more than a few students would write
in ami prove otherwise.
"Sorry — No Credit"
A funeral director's representative said
recently that he was "horrified" because S
panel of non-denominational critics charged
in effect that churches and funeral homes
were turning death into a commercial venture with all the trappings of a Coronation.
His explanation: "Embalming is an ancient science that goes back to the days of
the Egyptians and is designed to lend comfort to the bereaved."
The Egyptians did embalm their dead.
But this provides no justification for the
present showy ceremonials that attend a
funeral and the pancake makeup that "comforts the bereaved." The high cost of dying,
both the material cost and the loss in self-
respect when the retraining members of the
family must submit to the animal antics
of a funeral procession and parlor, remains
But perhaps we shouldn't be too hard
on those souls who make death an occupation. They are, after all, only another result
of this society's peculiar philosophy.
It's no wonder that funeral homes are
so lucrative. We pander to them. We kill
ourselves so we can get into them.
Our relatives feel that we haven't lived
unless we die at one of them.
And because their's is an ancient art,
we protect the undertakers who are skinning not only our dead but otir living. Certain religious sects use the same method
for justifying their existence: it was written in the time of Adam and Eve; therefore
it  is true, and  it   is right.
It's odd that the world's oldest business
is not respected.
Our peculiar philosophy allows us to
embrace those who live By the dead but to
heap shame on those who both provide entertainment to 'the living and clientele for
the undertakers.
Here at least is a business that spreads
the wealth around a little bit. And it has
since the time of Eve.
We're not trying to glorify or even
excuse the ancient art of prostitution. But
we must point out that longevity for a business enterprise is no reason for its continuation, particularly when the real purpose
of the initial venture is no longer applicable.
The true design of Egyptian embalming
lay in the religious belief that the soul
remained with the body. It could do this
only if the body was intact and provided
with food. No decent soul would remain in
a pile of dust, after all.
But this belief is no longer prevalent,
unless among the modern counterparts to the
Egyptian embalmers. The religion professed
by the greater number of Canadians bespeaks very little interest in the actual
body after death. In fact it defiles the body
while it glorifies the soul
Unless those "Christians" who are serviced by morticians are hypocrites, we can
see no reason for a desire to look after a
useless body and no cause for comfort from
the gratification of such a desire.
In fact we are "horrified" that a decadent religious custom should provide the
excuse for certain souls to use others' bodies
in order to keep their own bodies clothed
in wealth.
Once a student has passed
through the educational
groundwork of the high school
level, the university takes over
and supplies what is commonly'
called higher learning. Let us
look at how this higher learning is presently administered.
In British Columbia the university student generally enters university with junior matriculation. He is so veil prepared from his high school days
that in the majority of cases
he is unable to write an essay,
he can hardly spell correctly,
his work habits are so out-of-
line with work habits at a university that it takes over a
year to get adjusted to the
change; his proficiency in the
languages is notoriously bad,
and in many cases'he doesn't
have a clue of what is expected
of him at university.
As a result a good one-third
of the students fail in their
first year and about one-fifth
fail in their second year.
At other Canadian campi
this figure is even higher,
which may mean that their
high school system is worse or
their university standard much
'However,''It is said continu-
•ally that our upiversity is overcrowded; that we don't have
enough lecturers; that our
class rooms have to be larger.
•That may be all very true
under 1he present circumstances which, however, does not
mean that the circumstances
cannot be changed.
Our high school system
must eliminate a substantial
portion of those students which
fail in their first and second
This can be done through a
more thorough and better preparation before matriculation
and if someone suggests that it
cannot be accomplished he
should remember that it is being done at the present time at
the university level.
There is absolutely no reason why the elementary subjects (Math. 100 and 200, English 100 and 200, and French
100 and 200) cannot be taught
at high school.
At high schools the necessary large classrooms are available. There also are teachers
to whom these subjects are not
a bore but a challenge. One
must remember that for a qualified university professor or
lecturer, elementary subjects
are mostly an uninteresting
burden, and that his best abilities and interests lie in the
more advanced stages of learning.
Now, if these students never
come to university to learn elementary subjects, but tome to
obtain an advanced education
only, a substantial amount of
lab and classroom space will
become less crowded, more
lectures will become available,
and'less valuable time will be
wasted. It is therefore proposed that the majority of basic
subjects presently being taught
in the first and second years
at university shall be incorporated into the high school curriculum.
Thttfe remoihs one further
consideration.    At the present
time Canadian Universities are
only operating from the middle
of September to the end of
April. With the exceptions of
a six-week session during the
summer, which is only attended by a very restricted number
of students, the Canadian
campi are dormant during
May, June, July, August and
One half of September, a total
of four and one half months.
During this time the students
are trying to make sufficient
money for next year's studies;
not as full fledged professionals, but as unskilled laborers
or clerical personnel. What
does this mean?
It simply means that across
Canada several hundred million dollars of capital invested
in universities are not being
used but are subject-to maintenance and upkeep costs. It
means that at least 50,000 students for four and one-half
months every year make a
living which confers less benefits on the economy than if
these students would have a
complete university education.
It means less foods produced,
less money made and fewer
taxes collected.
I have never ceased to marvel at this result; and the reasons for a policy to operate
during the winter only, have
valways been a profound mystery to my mind. I have never
heard of any industry doing
such things; if there are seasonal fluctuations they are only
. caused by seasonal influences
Outside the control of thc industry, such as poor weather
for winter operations    of    the
logging industry, seasonal
growth in harvesting, etc. But
I could not imagine the General
Motors Company shutting
down every year from May to
September; the stockholders
certainly would not stand any
such nonsense.
Unfortunately universities
do not have stockholders who
can demand a change. Only the
public can do this, and changing public opin'on is not easy.
Unless it can be shown that
some blatant error is being
made, the'public hesitates to,'
do anything drastic.
I believe that a grave mistake is being made. Not only
does the public incur a financial loss each Unie expensive
facilities are not being used or
a student has to work before
he is fully qualified to enter a
field that demands intellectual
experience, but also does the
nation lose the race to intellectual supremacy.
Therefore I suggest that a
Commission should be set up
to investigate the feasibility of
operating Canadian universities on a year round basis.
Tho next and final article
will deal with the financial
problem lhat arises if such a
scheme were in operation.
Letters to the Editor
Socreds State Position
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear MVidam:
In view of the recent editorial in" the Ubyssey regarding
alleged Anti-Semetism in the
Social Credit Party, as President of the Social Credit Club
on campus, I feel compelled to
state our position on the matter and also to clarify some
misunderstanding which evidently exists with regard to the
recent Social Credit Convention.
Unfortunately, in the past
there have been Anti-Semetic „
elements at work in the Social
Credit Movement and this we
would not deny. Certain individuals have apparently accepted the Protocols of Zion as
gospel truth. Though Henry
Ford, through exhaustive research, found them to be a
fraud some people still believe
in their veracity. I would hasten to point out that any Anti-
Semetic tendencies have been
those of the individual and did
not represent the feeling of the
B. C. Social Credit League or
the Canadian Social Credit Association.
One of the basic tenets of the
Democracies is the freedom
which one has to express his
opinion. In 1943, in an article
appearing in MacLean's Magazine entitled "Should We Send
the Japs Back?", Howard
Green, the present Minister of
Public Works, took the affirmative. Yet no one would suggest that because of this the
Conservative Party is Anti-
Many members of all political parties have expressed their
dislike for Roman Catholicism
yet no one would suggest that
because of this those parties
are Anti-Catholic.
I submit that it is quite simple to scan Hansard and pick
out a half a sentence here and
there and prove almost anything.
Mr. Low, while speaking on
Campus in recent years, has
made it plain that Social Credit is most certainly not Anti-
Semetic. Premier Bennett in
a recent statement to the press,
which incidentally was "cut"
to such an extent that it was
hardly recognizable, stated his
position and that of his government. Yet those opposed 1o
Social Credit sweep aside these
denials and continue to believe
that Social Credit is Anti-Scm-
etic on the basis of what someone is alleged to have said ten
or twelve years ago.
Unfortunately, a delegate
got to his feet in the dying
moments of the recent Social
Credit Convention when two-
thirds of the delegates were
absent and strung some incoherent thoughts into words and
in his remarks mentioned the
word "Zionism." His remarks
were not understood let alone
approved of.
In the Nov. 1 edition of thc
Jewish Western Bulletin, Noel
Murphy, B.C. Social Credit
League President says, "The
delegate in question, whose
statement was very brief,
should have been declared out
of order, but probably had finished before the Chairman of
' the Convention had realized
fully what he had been saying.
His remarks were made during
discussion on a general resolution about Social Credit education and which contained no
suggestion of the kind he made.
There was no Anti-Semetic
Resolution either offered or

Food for Thought
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
I think that it is obvious that
the reason students have not
written letters to the Editor
over the poor food service
available on the campus is because they are scrupulously
honest. No one can afford to
pay for a meal and thus give
an ifnbiascd opinion on this
In the current craze over the
importance of science I believe
that they have taken this to
heart and are intent upon a
methodical study of the problem in keepirfg with the newly
enhanced value of this approach.
With regard to this develop
ment I therefore propose that
a charity fund be set up so that
each week some poor, deserving student will be rewarded
with a free meal in the cafeteria on condition that he or she
W,ritc of this experience in The
I further suggest that several
students take turns in serving
this lucky soul and thereby ensuring that the delicaeic:; will
arrive in at least a lukewarm
One final word of caution- —
the student should have the
afternoon free ol classes to
make sure that there will be
time to complete the meal. A
package of cigarettes is recommended between courses.
Yours sincerely,

Hither  and
walked into the place at 1.47 on
Monday morning just as the
floor show started.
Since 8.30 of the evening before I'd been in a comfortable
cocktail spot known as Lafitte's
Blacksmith Shop drinking beer
and talking with the patrons.
By the time I walked out of
there you might have said I was
loaded and you'd be right.
To get back to my hotel I had
to cross four blocks on Bourbon
Street that were infested with
strip joints. 6n the edge of this
district I stopped in at the Old"
Absinthe House for a last-ditch
primer. It was cheap bourbon
and could have quite possibly
come out of a ditch. Then I cut
I didn't make it. A persuasive barker (wrapped in a camel
hair coat) swung open the right
door at the right time revealing
the right "girl revealing the right
things.   I went in.
The pkice was shabby, the
music was recorded, the drinks
were a buck, but the entertainment was real. Unless she'd had
plastic surgery and even then I
\vas close enough to notice the
scars. • *
She was doing a little number
called "Who's Got the Dihg-
Dong" but didn't fool me. She
.had it all along, hanging from
her G-string. With a thigh
m6vement that would have paralysed any' red-blooded hula
dancer she was tolling the bell
like the redcoats were returning, All the time she was murmuring audibly, "like that
boys, do you?" And the boys
liked it, You could tell by the
way they had trouble breathing.
Her piece de resistance was
a dance with acrobatics over a
fountain. It was fascinating
what she could make the water
do. Whether it was her or the
water splashing on hot floodlight bulbs I don't know, but
by the end of the act a cloud
of steam was working its way
up the bar.
This over she went back
stage to dress, not to change.
A guy who would have a tough
time signalling the waiter for
two beers in the Georgia then
came on stage and tried to get
the crowd's attention while he
told  jokes.
After three and a half excruciating minutes of this lie relented and brought on Carme-
lita, Mexico City's contribution
to the poise-for-the-boys world.
It was at this point that I noticed that the bundle df sweetness from the first act had
come into the crowd. She sat
down with two men at the
other end of the bar. Five minutes later she came over to
where  I  was.
She was wearing a tight-fitting negligee with delicate rose
patterns located at the appropriate  points.
"May I sit down," she said.   ,
I casually twirled my highball glass around.
"Sure. Go, ahead."

Inco Research helps Canada grow
In Inco's new .matte separation process, the
molten matte comes from huge Bessemer converters to thc casting and cooling building in
14-ton ladles. There, it is poured into brick-lined
cooling moulds and covered with insulated steel
hoods. During the cooling period, while the matte
solidifies, nature works her magic. At the end of
the controlled cooling cycle, the nickel and copper
sulphides have each formed into separate crystals.
|nco feeMch solves the "riddle of the rock"
New method developed for separating
nickel and copper in Sudbury ores
I he "riddle of the rock"'—how to
separate nickel and copper when they
are both present in the same ore— had
plagued mankind for centuries. It confounded early attempts to produce
copper from the ores mined near
Sudbury, Ontario.
The Orford process of separating
nickel and copper helped put the
Canadian nickel industry on its feet
and served if well for many years.
Recently Inco developed a new and
better method of separating the nickel
and copper present in the Sudbury ores.
After careful study, involving hundreds
of laboratory experiments and a long
period of pilot plant operation, Inco
research found a way to put nature
to work solving the "riddle of the rock".
Inco metallurgists discovered how
to cool molten matte under carefully
controlled conditions so that the
copper and nickel sulphides form
into independent crystals which can
be separated by conventional means.
The new matte separation process is
another example of the way Inco research is finding better ways to find,
mine, smelt and refine Canada's great
store of mineral wealth.
for High School Graduates
To help capable and deserving high
school and preparatory school graduates get a university education,
Inco has established 100 four year
scholarships in Canadian colleges
and universities. Twenty-five
scholarships have been awarded for
the academic year 1457-1458 and
twenty-li' evvill be awarded for each
succeeding year so that all 100
scholarships will be in effect by
September, I 9(>0. I orcomplete

The longest gain Seattle made

honors-for the win. Henwood
scored two touchdowns, passed ;
for one on a halfback option,;
and kicked four converts. '
The versatile halfback also
handled punting chores and;
kick-off duties. In rushing^ Henwood ran,for 122 yards in 11*
carries.-for an average of 11.2.
In the third quarter, Henwood
rolled out and threw a 48-yard
pass to Jurgen Von Schilling.
Vc."1. Schilling also caught Hen-!
wood's TD pass.
Vassos thrilled the handful of'
spectators when he took a hand-
off over right tackle on thc
'Birds first play of thc pmic.
broke away and ran 52 yards for
a touchdown.
He repeated the performance
in the third quarter, but the TD
was called back, and Vassos did
not score again until the fourth
quarter when he went over
tackle for 21 yards for the Birds'
final major.
Vassos averaged 19 yards per
carry on six carries.
Quarterback Bill Melville
scored the remaining Thunderbird TD on a quarterback sneak
from the Seattle 3-vard line.
