Buy It Outright Or Leave Us Alone
The new issue of Canadian stamps pictures a newspaper engraved with the words:
"freedom of the Press". To the government
this means there is no political interference.
"to the advertisers, it apparently means
nothing.
An advertfeer offered to insert his ten
bucks worth in the Ubyssey recently on
dne condition! that an editorial be published about his product.
His agent, who learned his trade at
kindergarten, Commerce School, and the
advertising department of a metropolitan
newspaper, told the editors: 'T'm used to
getting co-operation from the editorial department."
This wasn't news to us, but our refusal
to be bribed by advertisers was news tcf
him. "You'll lose money," he cried.
The next day he reappeared with a new-
bribe: "It doesn't matter whether the
[editorial is favorable or not, so long as it
lis publicity." The last time this paper
Icritized an advertiser who was out to ex
ploit the Development Fund for his own
ends, he said about the same thing. He was
glad We'd brought his screeching ad to the
attention of buyers.
Other advertisers have been rudely
shocked when we refused news coverage
to them. Apparently these men — the
same ones who speechify about Canadian
freedoms — expect disguised advertising
on a one cent sale basis when they buy the
regular dose.
The regular dose, however, is all we
sell here. We may lose money, but "Freedom of the Press" still means something
to us.
It means we can question the university
administration, critize Mr. Bennett, investigate the high school program, and talk
about the CBC.
But it also means we are ft'ee frtmv the
control of those organization men who bribe
without conscience and court publicity at
the cost of a basic Canadian freedom,
Confused   Leadership
A university Presbyterian College chaplain told a downtown paper recently that
UBC   students   are   no   more   ignorant   of
religion than the population in general. But
they are "very confused."
j; "Basically one of the problems is that
so much of the university atmosphere tends
to? critical examination of everything people believe," Dr. John A. Ross mourned.
The trouble is "there is no positive information to counteract the criticism," he
sdid.
"One of the basic problems of our time
is-to work out some rapprochment between
the church and the university. Otherwise
these young people who are the future leaders of our country are going out with nothing positive to offer on behalf of the
church."
The solution to the problem?
Well, Dr. Ross suggested that more
chaplains might help, but they would have
to worR together in a well-knit way so
they coud have a united front.
Let's take a second look at this, sir.
What has been said is: It is a problem
that students are critical. The church must
overcome this problem. Otherwise these
students will become leaders without the
church.
The solution offered carries with it all'
the faults that made the student critical in
the first place: more unity of thought, more
counter-propaganda, more faith, less criticism, less confusion.
We will admit that this solution is
indeed "positive". There wouldn't be any
leaders without the church.
itics And Pearson - Again
When a Liberal said he'd like to put
arsenic in our coffee, and a Conservative
said, with partisah snickers, that our
"Peace, Politics, Pearson," editorial was
"dandy," we began to suspect that we just
didn't make ourselves clear.
We were neither criticizing Pearson
or complementing Diefenbaker. We were
neither damning the Liberals nor turning
Conservative.
What we were trying to say wa.s that
we are sorry that Mr. Pearson, for whom we
cherished the utmost respect when he held
the Externa! Affairs portfolio, bowed to
party machinery. We were and are sorry
that he is NO BETTER than Mr. Diefenbaker isnd a long,- line of other Canadian
politicians, Liberal and Conservative.
What we felt, as vVe saw him in immediate pre- and post-election days, heard
his speeches, and watched him at the press
conference last weekend! was that he had
stepped down a few pegs and wasn't yet
prepared for all the ballyhoo that arrived
with descent.
Out   Otf  £te/t
Editor, the Ubysfeey,
Dear Madam:
Before stating my complaint,
I might first offer some due
praise to those persons' about
to be criticised, namely, the
directors of the university and
the provincial government.
They deserve a great deal of
credit for trying to improve the
educational system and setup
in B.C. They are sincere in this
objective I am sure.
However, for one reason or
another, they are approaching
the problem with the wrong objective in mind. Tuesday's
Ubyssey announced the plans
for the future University of
B.C. — a centralized campus
serving 24,000; 24 new buildings; 80 entry lanes; 6 new
parking areas; etc.; $30,000,000
expansion within the next ten
years. This is all very impressive indeed, but what a waste
of time, energy and money.
Seriously try to imagine what
UBC will be like with 24,000
students jammed into it! Hea
ven knows, it's big enough now.
Yes, the plans do stipulate al-
loting 82 square feet per student, 1,421,800 square feet of
new academic spacg, and 2,-
000,000 square feet for athletic
facilities, administration etc.—
likewise very impressive, indeed! But consider the studying
atmosphere this will all create.
Already 30 per cent of our
first year enrollment fail each
year — fail to adapt to the
change from high school to
university, our educationalists
claim. Evidently they become
lost in the maze of "campus
life," lose their identity as an
individual student, and become
swallowed up in the midst of
it all. Those are the poor students, the university will say.
Ah, yes, but the good students are affected and suffer
equally from the same complaint — the cause of all the
university's ills so far and to
be even more so in the future
as the university grows.
This   is  the  lack   of  personal
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Anti-Anti- Americans
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Not since "54-40 or Fight"
was a national slogan have
U.S. - Canadian relations in the
northwest ebbed so low. A
most alarming anti-American
attitude is increasingly evident among many of our own
campus members.
Why attempt to promote our
own country by sniping at the
Americans? It would be far
more beneficial if we devoted
less time trying to tell Uncle
Sam how to run his country
and more time trying to improve our own.
Canada needs investment
capital from an older country
and we have no just cause to
resent this. Canada and the
U.S. can and must help each
other to help themselves by
working together as a co-operating unit.
I wonder how quickly those
"Yankee haters" would retract
their foolish attitudes it' it were
possible  for  them  to conceive
a Canada co-existing with any
■other   nation   stretched   along
the broad expanse of thc 49th?
Yours truly,
R. W. ITAICH

WAD-GOD Challenge
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
In keeping with the high
level of athletic endeavour
that has been set for the candidates for WAD-GOD, it is my
idea that a contest should be
arranged to establish the qualifications in order that no athletic mis-fits will be considered.
For this reason I hereby
challenge all comers lo a marble shooting contest on the
stage of the auditorium at the
Pep Meet Friday noon.
In keeping with my favourite pastime I had originally
planned to engage in a clash

SOUS LA TABLE   -   BY KEN LAMB
I was having trouble thi-:
morning thinking of a column
subject until I walked through
the Brock Art Gallery and had
my ears pinned back by that
damned radio.
The day they put the radio
up I was upset, but I never
said anything because I was noi
in the best of moods, and
wanted to comment with an
unclouded mind.
But I have been suffering in
silence since, both with clouded and unclouded mind. Months
ago I used to .sit down and try-
to figure out those paintings,
After they put in the radio
I tried only twice. But I would
just get the train of thought
working on that Northern
Lights epie when Radsoc's
"middle of the road" music
would cut out and a harsh-
voiced young man would cut
in.
Radsoc    is    keen    to    please
everyone Willi  (he  wide  appeal
of their music. This is probably good, for it shows an honest effort to entertain as many
as possible.
But I wish Radsoc would
exert that same consideration
with their radio personalities.
Some of those voices, especially
the ones trying to emote, come
out like Mickey Rooney in a
chicken   house.
I have nothing against the
people themselves. They are
all fine fellows, and I loo do
not have such a dulcet tone
in my own voice1.
But. I try not. to put my voice
on the radio,
And if 1 did, it would not
be for I lie purpose of barging
into people's quiet conversations in the Brock Lounge, the
Brock Art Gallery, and the
Brock Coffee Shop with a lol,
of high-pressure pleas lo sell
rubbish.
If 1 wanted to listen to thai
Mine. 1 would .slay home and
pretend   I   were a  housewife,
It would be easier to listen
to at home, too, for no matter
how bad the original is, it never
quite nauseates as much as a
poor  imitation.
I know of a number of people who would agree vvith mc
that Radsoc has conducted a
regrettable invasion into the
last place where one could sit
and talk in relative peace.
Perhaps all of us would not
mind if the programs were less
obnoxious, more quiet, and of
more honest desire to please
than to operate a.s playing
fields for extroverts.
Or perhaps if ex-Radsoc Jack
McGraw moved his Sunday
afternoon CKWX show lo the
campus five clays a week,
But what, we have now from
the mouths of his successors is
not easy on the ears, the nerves,
or the slomach, and I resent
lhat there's nowhere in the
Brock you can go to get away
from it.
Kxelusivo of the Johns, there
is still one place left — the
pub office. Neither is that easy
on the nerves, but at least you
can answer back.
For two minutes last week
our privacy was invaded by
these trespassers, A man came
down the -stairs and in, a radio
speaker under one arm and a
screw driver in his back pocket.
He affixed the speaker to the
wall, notwithstanding some
comment, like: "What, in hell
are you doing'"'
"I dunno. They told me to
put, il up. I got orders."
Far be it from us to countermand orders.
The little man connected his
wires. Music blared, The man
smiled witli pride and left. The
mush' stopped, and a radio personality came on.
A little girl took a pair of
scissors and cut Ihe radio personality off. Forever.
For anyone interested, Ihe
scissors are available.

however discouraged by faculty  officials  who  selfishly  reserve this sport for themselves.

Prattle
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Is there nobody in the Pub
Office who appreciates how
annoying all this prattle of
"pseudo or non-pseudo" is to
the majority of students?
Very few persons are; interested in the soul-searching of
the Ubyssey columnists.
Tired of Barry Hale with his
gimrack comments on the failings of the University community, and of Ken Lamb with
his silly justification of an ignorance of basic French.
Tired of affected Irishmen
who write laboured poems in
obscure and incompetent language in an effort to be impressive. Tired of sanctimonious orientals who have the hypocrisy to attack the West
when their own countries are
corrupt and immature. Tired
of fatuous chit-chat which is
supposed to pass for wit.
Tired of crudity which is too
gross to be even faintly amusing.
So tired, I'm nearly asleep.
Yours truly,
PEPIN
P.S.—Granted that it is
easier to criticize than to create, but I've wanted to say this
for so long — snooze.
Blitz Conflict
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
The organizers of the UBC
Development Fund "Blitz" are
as farseeirtg as the proverbial
blind bats. The evening they
have chosen for the "Blitz",
supposedly after much thought
coincides with the opening
night of IVPilssoc's annual operetta, "Call Me Madam."
On Monday, February 17, il
is hoped by Mussoc that 1000
students will attend "Call Me
Madam". On the same evening the Development Fund
Committee hopes to have at
least 1200 students canvassing,
This is too much to expect!
The Committee is not only
"culling ils own throat" but
also is "cutting thc throat" of
one of the University's foremost clubs.
Theoretically the "Blitz" is
a fine idea, but practically it.
has very little value.
The money collected will be
insignificant, and the Socred
Government already knows
that public opinion is behind
the idea of increased allotments to the University.
But still the Fund Committee stages its "Blitz" on an
evening when a University
Club is presenting perhaps the
entertainment highlight of lhe
year. Surely this is stupidily
in the extreme.
Yours   truly.

contact between professors and
students in the classes.
Only in small classrooms, and
on small campii can thc professor expect to become familiar
with his students and try to
counsel and inspire them on.
Also, this is absolutely essential
in a good school of the Arts
and Humanities,
I will concede it to the university though, that in the sciences and possibly the Commerce courses, a professor could
teach a large number of students almost as well as a small
number, since the questions are
either right or wrong, and
therefore the student should be
able to know well enough how-
he stands in the course and
whal he should do to improve
himself.
Whereas it is a much different
story in the Arts and Humanities. Ask any student or a
professor in that department,
should you disagree.
Hence, in my opinion, this
impressive, Texas-style expansion program is a veritable misconception of the proper approach to the supply-and-de-
mand education problem of
today.
It is true that for the Applied
Sciences a centralization is indispensable, in fact, it is prer
ferable, considering the expense of equipment and laboratories, and the requirements for
research. But, all that is required for Arts students is the
where-with-all to make them
think and read — professors.
Surely then, it would be far
more advisable to spend some
of the university development
campaign funds and our tax
money on equipping Victoria
College to offer a full Arts
course, and possibly starting
a similar College in the Interior, say al Nelson or Kelowna,
so as to take the strain off
UBC proper and at the same
time offer the students a better
place in which to study . . .
one conducive to study, so-to-
speak.
Those persons responsible,
should not let perverted politics, false pride, and 20th century bigger-the-better material3
ism dictate what their hearts'
and consciences know to be unsuitable and unjust.

Saucer Club Criticized
Criticisms levelled at the Flying Saucer Club were answered at a general meeting Wednesday by Secretary Treasurer, Stuart Piddocke. ','	
TW first Criticism — that club
meetings were juvenile, and
members not doing a damned
thing" — was answered on the
grounds that ehib meetings are
held only to deal with business,
and to inform other interested
individuals of club activities.
The real activity of the group,
Piddocke explained, is carried
out through discussions, research
projects, and reading. Books on
space and flying objects are
available for club members.
The second criticism was that
not enough attention is paid by
the club technical aspects. This
situation has been remedied by
n serietK of "regularly irregular"
discussions, the first of which
was held last Saturday evening.
At these meetings, questions
are posed on technical problems
not, directly 'related to flying
saucers.
A "sighting" by two boys a
short time ago was also discussed at the meeting. The flying
object under discussion was
seen as a bright line between
Shaughnessy Heights and the
mountains, headed out toward
English Bay.

PEER GYNT SMOOTH
Thursday, January 30, 1958
SSING
By BARRIE HALE
The English Department's
Workshop production of Ibsen's
"Peer Gynt" was smooth and
engrossing theatre—a little too
smooth. It was very seldom displeasing, but it was, as well,
very seldom moving.
Both the beauties and the
flaws of the production can,
I think, be directly traced to
director Ian Thome. It was he
who  was  responsible  for  the
integrated, controlled crowd
scenes, scenes with a sensual
pleasure all their own, each
self-contained, each contributing to the development of the
structure of the play. As a re-
suit, the play was coherant for
all its complexity. But it was
also he who imposed his will
to integrate on the individual
parts, with the result that often
there was no individuality organic  to  the  characters them
selves. The audience was given
a succession of unit sensations,
but too seldom these sensations
were without emotional impact.
Richard Irwin, as Peer, gave
a consistantly controlled performance, but there was occasionally about it an expeditious
air, as it' he were over-anticipating the next line of dialogue.
Nonetheless, he was capable of
sustained periods of great emotional communicativeness—the
period that commenced with his
decision to abduct Ingrid and
lasted until his entry into the
Troll Kingdom, for instance,
and alroiost the entire third act,
when he was, from where I
sat, poignancy personified.
There was encouraging evidence, too, in Mr, Irwin's characterization, that he was a
trifle uncomfortable when
called upon to be "polished."
I say "encouraging," because
I suspect that it was the "polish" of Peter Haworth's char-

"Sayonara"  —   Fearless  And   False
By M. R. FRECHETTE
"Sayonara" is another one of
those films which "attacks taboos fearlessly" and its ability
to play fast and loose with psychology, sociology, and the
truth is nothing short of incredible.
Miscegenation is a serious
matter at any time; but especially so in thc Japanese-American case, because of the obvious strain, not only between
East and West, but also between history's first ex-nuclcar
enemies. When asked by a reporter what the Brass' reaction
will be to his marriage to a
Bolshoi!
By RUPERT BUCHANAN
The film "The Bolshoi Ballet" is a record of one of the
great Russian company's few
appearances outside the USSR.
It was filmed in London in
1956, and consists of "Giselle"
and portions of six other
works.
In my opinion thc Russian
group surpasses even thc Royal
Ballet. In other words, it is
thc best in the world. The
Royal Ballet's sets and costumes are more lavish and one
is conscious of remarkable
technical skill in every production; but the Bolshoi, which
has kept entirely within the
classical tradition, has a trans-
cendant fluidity, grace and lyrical power.
The difference is also evident in the primieres clause-
uses of the two companies. The
Royal Ballet's Margot Fontcyn
is sparkling and flowerlike,
while Ulanova, at 47, cannot
rely on her appearance and
uses only the subtlest facial expressions to convey impressions. She conveys them
through her body in motion
in a manner which is beyond
analysis.
In addition to "Giselle" the
film consists of "Dance of the
Tartars" from the ballet "The
Fountain of Bakhschsari." the
Spanish Dance from "Swan
Lake," a duct, "Spring Waters"
by Rachmaninoff, "Polonaise
and Gracovienne" from Glinka's "Ivan Susanin," and Saint
Sacns' "Dying Swan".
The color photography is
excellent. The film was made
by Paul Czinner and I. R. Mux-
well for the J. Arthur Rank
Organization. It's now being
shown at the Park Theatre (all
scats reserved, al $2.00) starting tomorrow.
Whether or not one is familiar with ballet, the beauty of
this film is inescapable. It is
well worth seeing.
Japanese showgirl, the Air
Force Ace replies "Tell them
we said Sayonara (farewell)."
And as the sun sets on the Gin-
za our hero sets out to get married up at the U.S. Consul's
place. This is not only one of
the weakest endings I've heard,
but it also holds the key to the
failure of Sayonara as an intelligent story.
"Sayonara" fails because of
the happy ending. Due to its
consecration to this dogma of
the happy ending, Hollywood
has ruined the efforts of several
million dollars and the services
of Marlon Brando as well. Not
that millions haven't been
squandered before by Hollywood, but this film in one
sense amounts almost to an insult, not only to our intelligence, but to that of the Japanese as well.
Devotion to duty is probably
the most important single item
in the life of the Japanese and

they gladly face even suicide

James A. Mitchener's novel
very wisely confined itself
only to what was probable and
consequently when it came to
a choice between their duty
and their love, Air Force Ace
Lloyd Grucber and the Japanese showgirl Hana Ogi stuck
to their chosen professions and
the poignant word Sayonara
had an integral relation to the
story.
The Ace Grueber of the movie is a sloppy bit of characterization that makes a Southern
gentleman and an officer of
"the Point" look like a lovesick slob. Brando makes no
effort to break the stereotype
barrier and by his own admission to Truman Capote, stopped acting after the third clay
of shooting. As a result, Ace
Grueber shows himself to have
no more real understanding of
the culture of Japan than a
sharecropper.

The photography is good
and captures adequately the
startling, sometimes wild beauty of Japan. However, the
Japanese are still the best photographers of their homeland,
and thc photography in Sayonara pales by comparison to
that done in such films as Ras-

part in this production on the
grounds that il would expose
me to the charge of seeking lo
establish a personal fan club.
However, I would like to say
that, for the most part, those
who played the secondary roles
and the many smaller parts
acquited themselves wih com-
petance, and that they .showed,
besides Mr. Thome's guiding
hand, remarkable prescence of
mind in avoiding collisions.
For me, there were only two
secondary characterizations in
the first and third acts that remained individually realized
without detracting from the
unity or development of the
play. First of these was Waller
Shynkaryk's, who, a.s the
King of the Dovre, carried character expoitation to the limit
he was wholly engaging, but
never stepped across the line
to become distracting. As his
daughter, Caroline Bell was
just the right combination of
sexual desirability and personal
repulsiveness; she was, quilt
properly, thc most disquieting
Troll around.
The scemd act deserves to
lie discussed separately because,
for at least half of its length,
il distinguished itself from the
rest, of the play by being the
.sloppiest segment. The compre-
hensibility — and, 1 might
say as regards the picnic scene,
amiability — and pace that
marked the firsh act were missing here; not until the lunatic
scene did things begin to pickup and the proceedings become
coherant. but hero, uni'orl unalc-
ly, some of the characterizations were poor. 1 am willing
to admit Dial the substance of
the second act is slighter than
thai of ti>" other two, but nevertheless ii'." individual characterization.-; generally were not
strong enough to stand on their
own, at the same lime that they
obtruded enough to detract
from what strength the* episodes themselves had. Exceptions to this general rule were
Kore   Herrnanrud   and   Marlon
Poggemiller.
The sets were functional so
far as they facilitated movement, but, save for the stylized
frees in thc third act, not especially evocative of any sort of
mood, and thc lighting struck
me as more than adequate,
which was a pleasant surprise.
II was also a welcome and
unique experience to witness
a production that was free
from technical flaws, an experience made possible by technical director Sidney Bennel
and hi.s staff.
Finally, I should like to say
lhat I found John Brocking-
ton's music extremely apt, especially during the scene where
Peer and Thc Woman In Green
meet and embrace; the violin
Mr. Brockington scored for this
scene fairly dripped with
grimy, unattractive sex.
