AMS Council Denounces
CUP Policy Decisions
"The Student's Council does not have the power to adopt
the charter of the Student's Press of Canada because it is against
the AMS constitution, as it now stands."
Dave Edgar, AMS treasurer, made this statement in retaliation to yesterday's edition of the Ubyssey in which the AMS
was accused of refusing a free student press.
Even if the Charter had been accepted it would have been
invalid because, in allowing the Editor complete freedom it
goes against a clause in the AMS Constitution which states that
the Editor is responsible to the AMS.
The Student Body is the only power sufficient to amend th©
constitution. This means that until the General Meeting in
March, nothing can be done about the constitutional drawback.
Student Council members could not seem to find anything^
specific against the charter itself.   They primarily were against;
it for technical reasons in the wording of the charter and because of ideals as to the tradition of student'responsibility
which has always been upheld at UBC.
However, in asking specific questions the Student's Council
members were against the Charter on general principles.
The use of "should" instead of "will" wording of the Charter makes it meangingless because it isn't binding, said second:
member-at-large Jim Meekison.
John Goodwin, first member, said it was very poorly worded and thus hard to interpret. This view was echoed by Brock
Co-ordinator Russ Brink, who classified the Charter as being
"vague and useless."
"You'd have a jolly time trying to interpret that piece of
garbage," was the only comment of Jim Horseman, co-ordinator of Publications.
Dave Edgar also stated that there are limits to anyone's
freedom; someone has to have power.
President Pete Meekison stated that the student's council
is not at all interested in dictating the editorial policy of the
"The basis of our student autonomy is that they are willing to accept responsibility and discipline themselves. Consequently all subsidiary organizations of the AMS will be responsible to the student's council which is in turn responsible t»
the student body," said Meekison.
"We have the finest tradition of student service and enjoy
the greatest amount of autonomy of any Canadian University
because students live up to their responsibility.
"Students pay for the paper, therefore they should have
some control over it," he continued.
In referring to a specific clause in the Student Press Charter, which states that the press be free from all forms of external interference, Meekison said: "Publishers are part of the
paper, and therefore they are not an external influence." Since
the students pay for the paper, they are the publishers.
If the AMS does not therefore assume responsibility for
the Ubyssey, the Administration will.
Expanded Committee Urged
To Aid Council in Duties
A strong undergraduate societies committee replacing most
of Student Council is Chris
Davies' suggestion.for the future
AMS government at UBC.
Davies, a second-year Forestry
student, spoke before the Haskins Commission on student government yesterday at noon.
Coucil is overloaded with
minor duties, he'said, and should
"have a greater opportunity to
concentrate on policy matters".
Davies   stated   that   Council
spends   too  much  of  its time
passing  the  minutes   of  other
receive a free chest x-ray from j organizations, and suggested that
this duty should be turned over
to the proposed USC. Council
could then pass only the USC
He wanted USC to "mature to
rank alongside Student Council
as an organization of prime responsibility".
This would be accomplished
by increasing from two to three
the number of representatives
from each faculty, and having
the resulting 36-miemfoer group
meet as a Council, presided over
by a student-elected executive—
president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary.
Positions on this USC "grassroots" organization would be
held only by juniors and seniors,
said Davies.
The result would be a single
40-member body handling all the
business formerly split between.
Council and USC.
Commission members questioned the size of the proposed
group on two grounds: it would
be too large to function effic*
iently and it would be too large
to find enough willing and
enthusiastic worker-members. Ife
was pointed out that only 2$
people ran for Council last yean
Commissioner Ross Hudson
saw discordant strains arising
in the proposed group as the result of differing ambitions by
interest and pressure groups.

What is an 'Unrealistic Dissenter?
On Thursday, January 21st, 1960, Miss Irene Frazer wrote
•n the front page of the Ubyssey an extended article on the
theoretical dictatorship of your Student Council. She said in
this article thai it was not only her opinion, but also the editorial board, with the exception of "one unrealistic dissenter."
I am that individual.
' The ensuing article is not meant for Miss Frazer as she is
already well aware of it, but as she elected to let her emotions
go rather than heed them, I feel the student body should be a-
T#areof circumstances surrounding the outcry of injustice.
1. Iiet us draw a parallel: Every five years the people of
Canada elect representatives to a body called Parliament. From
this body a certain number of individuals have the right to.
form the government. This organization then divides itself into
departments and each department is under the control of the
executive who in turn are responsible to Parliament. Perhaps
the main purpose o£ Parliament is to scrutinize and control the
executive, and so it is with your AMS. They decide how much
money is going to be voted, for each department, and because it
had the power of creating and is responsible to the' people for
the business arising from the organization, they have the unquestioned right to utilize control should a situation demand it.
2. Second, this article of Miss Frazer's is not a plea for
democracy, conver-sety, it is a demand for independent actions
and complete irresponsibility. . .Ho! Ho! would shout Miss Frazer, we will be responsible to the CUP. No.! No.! Miss Frazer,

By lite "CUP will illustrate the freedom from responsibility that
y«u -would possess. By its very nature of loose organization
and lack of enforcement machinery, the CUP must refrain
itself to soteordinate position.
3: What appears to me to be the convincing factor of freedom in editorial content is the fact that the AMS would never
BAKE to dictate or influence the content of our newspaper. If
tkey attempted such without just reason, I have no doubts that
the biggest "feeUabalu" would arise from the editorial offices
and typewriters of the UBYSSEY and consequently spell ruin
for the AMS.

A Matter  of Faith
Dear Sir,
"It is a matter of faith."
Yes! Everything is a matter of
faith. And that is why most
of the evils (again a matter of
faith!) plaguing the world are
direct or indirect sequels of
rigid political, social, economic
and religious faiths.
I have "faith" (you can not
escape that word) in being
generous in offering my free
apology to anybody who might
feel affronted by my sermon.
He should ask my apology in
his own writing and all letters
should be sent to his Holiness
and Majesty, the Dalai Lama—
the preserver and defender of
our twenty-first century civilization.
Charity begins at home, so
let us start with our illustrious
rulers at UBC. They have
faith ... so they victimized an
editor because his staff (unknown to him) boldly sent jitters through the spines of our
society ... head-on against
decadent moral and religious
Our AMS president and the
Ubyssey have faith ... so they
rejoice at the opportunity to
make "political propaganda"
(for lack of other useful occupations) out of the miserable
fate of Hungarian youth.
The socialists (the self appointed guardians of they know
no what) have faith ... so they
are enti-capitalist, anti-communist, anti-neutralism and
this and that. Are they for anything but political frustration?
In France, they, had faith in
Edenism, Suezism and the torture schools of the French
Army. Poor Hugh Gaitskell is
confused by faith in Nationalization, neuclearism, anti-neu- :
clearism, Liberalism and Bev-
anism. When defeated by prosperous Britons the big Labourites can only say to each other,
"I told you so."
In Canada, the socialists have
faith in the labour vote . . .
but labour doesn't go for CCF's
version of Marzism. And now
Hawrtd Winch has proclaimed a
new faith via his sermons to
steners both= in industry and
unions. What a conversion . . .
Truth revealed on a Cooks'
Tour of the world.
Kadar has faith ... in the
Russian Army.
Khrushchev has faith ... in
rockets and Sputniks, while his
peasants ye*m for rn»re-earthy
Mao has faith in communes
and the Big Leap Forward . . .
the poor suffer the anguish of
sore bleeding feet.
Nehru had faith in Chou's
smiles and charms . . . but
sharp teeth across the Himalayas have cured that delusion.
The Pope has faith ... in
encouraging over-population so
that he could feed starving multitudes on his faith.
Oh, yes, let us have faith ...
faith in everything—everything
that makes us happy, Faith
makes the world go around.
Give us more so we can have
our Human Comedy.

The Editor,

Dear Sir: It was with hhorror
and revulsion that we read yesterday's Ubyssey's headlines,
"These People Refused a Free
Student Press." Who, we
thought, could be s oignorant
and misdirected as to challenge
the freedom of the press, the
very basis of our intellectual
society here at UBC.
Our revulsion quickly turned
to cnofusion and utter disbelief
when we discerned our pictures amongst those who chose
to refuse a free student press.
How could our pictures appear in that "rogue's gallery"
of those who refused a free
student press.
We would never refuse a free
student's press.
In point of fact, even a casual
perusal of the offending documents (student's council minutes) would reveal that we did
not vote against the motion in
question as is implied by the
presence of our pictures beneath that horrific headline.
Consultation with distinguished legal authorities has
confirmed our belief that a
right of legal action exists on
the grounds of libelous defamation of character.
However, as we feel that the
above mentioned insult was perpetrated by young and inexperienced minds no action on our
behalf will be taken, provided
the Ubyssey:
1. Appologizes publicly for
its libelous behaviour toward
the "writers of this letter.
2. Admits publicly that the
Ubyssey   has proven   itself in-
• competent to handle what editorial freedom it now possesses.
Yours democratically,

cuted a plan showing organization, ingenuity and finese. Actually, the engineers only conceived the plan.
When the engineers attempted to build the apparatus for
their wet work, there was consternation in their ranks. They
found it necessary to use 'the
practical skill of a forester to
execute their idea.
As a logger and forester,
John Cummings had to organize and supervize the method
of rigging the tripod apparatus

THE    U B Y S S E Y
Friday, Jar£-
Squeal And You're Dead
The main theme of "A View
from the Bridge" is informing,
a subject necessarily close to
Arthur Miller's heart, since he
has in recent years refused to
do just that before a Senate
Committee investigating his
communist affiliations. As the
publicity wise Vancouver Little Theatre soon realised, there
are minor themes of a more
sensual nature, homosexuality and incest, but these are
merely the whips of Fate with
which Miller drives Eddie Car-
bone through the traitor's gate
and beyond the pale.
Dramatic tragedy, despite my
cojleague Wedman's redundancy, is always inevitable, and
certainly we are, from the first,
left in little doubt as to the
outcome of this play. But is
it a true tragedy? Miller breaks
seyeral of Aristotle's rules: the
most important being this, that
the protagonist (Eddie) is not
killed by the antagonist (Rodol-
pho) but by Marco, Rodolpho's
brother. The author appears to
have been in some doubt as to
whether his play was to be
true tragedy or "slice-of-life"
Cheyefskyism; in the .event,
it is a bit of both, and neither.
Were the play pure by Greek
standards, one could accept the
inhuman consistency of behaviour of all characters but
Eddie. Half realism, however,
makes us want more: in this
setting, Miller's cast appear
two-dimensional, adding to the
tract-like quality of the theme:
squeal and you're dead, in a
certain light seems to be Author's Special Pleading.
Characters in a tract, however skilfully written a tract,
have a dangerous similarity to
symbols. Nor are these figures
any exception. Eddie is going
to inform later on, and cannot
therefore be allowed to gain
sympathy, only pity; and he is
written as a man of little appeal. Catherine is going to be
disappointed in young love,
and must of a consequence
never be anything but warm,
willing, and sickeningly naive.
From first to last, Beatrice is
a long-suffering hausfrau; Marco, an honest elemental peasant,
a sort of cheap Italian translation of a Lawrence gamekeeper, and Rodolpho, despite the
unsatisfactory mystery of motive—is he marrying Catherine
for love or country?—a bubbly
youth with a permanent affliction of charm.
The lawyer Alfieri seems- to
be Miller being God walking
among (but always slightly
above) his Faithful. Having
known communists, and having
known intellectuals, albeit
none perhaps of Mr. Miller's
stature, it is easy to understand
his air of condescension and
his habit of underlining. The
party members one has met
were not only inevitably rude
and boorish but often stupid
as well. As a young man of
left-wing sympathies one found
this extremely disillusioning
and must suppose that Mr. Miller, though sticking to his
Marxist guns, would sooner
fire them from an isolated advance post than share a trench
with the hoi-polloi. Even Al-
fieri's position as Chorus
scarcely justifies his demeanour.  -
Another fault of writing connected with the lawyer is the
blank verse in which he alternately lectures and counsels.
AS POETRY, most of it is
somewhat better than indifferent prose, but one hears the
occasional unforgettable unfor-
.__i liveable line: "his  eyes were
like tunnels", for instance, the
less excusable for being employed twice. None of which
prevents this play from offering moments of emotional excitement and catharsis which
chase intellectual objections off
the stage; one recalls immediately the scene of Eddie kissing
first Catherine and then Rodolpho, and of course the finale of
the- knife-fight, although this
must seem a cliche after all the
Western and gangster motion-
pictures to which we have in
the past unwisely exposed our
psyches. And the whole play
grips; the schizoid critic finds
himself drawn into the action
even while he is regarding the
plot with a distant suspicion.
In the Vancouver Little
Theatre's production the grip
was relaxed scarcely at all, except perhaps in the crowd
scenes, always a weak point in
amateur theatre due to the inexperience and consequent
embarrassment of the walk-on
actors persuaded to swell the
number of passers-by.
Apart from this, the mood
was held excellently. Other
factors set aside for the moment, the direction and acting
must be thanked for this. It
has already been remarked
that the characters are straight
rather than seismographic lines,
and the V.L.T.A. cast kept
faith with their author. Peggy
Lynds gave an honest rendition of Catherine, wide-eyed,
firm-buttocked, pert, pretty,
and innocently passionate. As
Beatrice, hard-pressed housewife, Pat Barlow was so good
as to be barely noticeable: a
remarkable accomplishment at
this or indeed any level of the
theatre. One thought Marco so
convincing —a Latin Mellors
that, on glancing at the programme, one was amazed to encounter there a name as British as Richard Pierpont. Bill
Mills, although losing the occasional word to the exigencies
of an Italian accent and Miller's periods, made a most per
sonable and accurate Alfieri:
full of quiet wisdom, weary
dedication and Jahweh-like condescension.
Only Richard Barker and Al
Kozlik jogged Miller's pen
into a graph of their own.
Barker was, as Rodolpho,
something less than one wanted: instead of an appealing
youth full of Mediterranean
bravura and un-selfconscious
bounce, he played an appealing
youth of Anglo-Saxon sweetness: gangling and shyly coy.
Kozlik was more than one was
prepared for. Granted that at
times his style of acting—and
he has style—irritated with the
suggestion of a movie-going
longshoreman amusing his
mates with an imitation of a
Method actor, he put in a remarkably sustained appeal for
sympathy as Eddie. One can
think of no other actor in Vancouver, amateur or otherwise,
who could have played the part
as well; his performance was
obviously the result of a great
deal of hard work and no little
personal and directional inspiration, and one is grateful to all
Directional inspiration permeated this production, and
Ian Thorne must be very happy
with his cast and his play—
and his set, designed by Ted
Parker, which doth bestride
the whole Elizabethean stage,
colossal labrynthine and triumphant. There are only four
points on which he can be
faulted:    one,   why   are   four
microphones    necessary?     one
had understood the acoustics in
the Queen   Elizabeth   Theatre,
providing no part of the stage
is masked,     are    excellent,  in
which case microphones are an
admission  of the vocal weakness of some or all of the cast.
The second concerns the chair
incident, which    brings    down
the first act curtain. Eddie has
struck Rodolpho with unnecessary force while giving him a
boxing   lesson;   Marco, protective, demonstrates his superior
strength by hoisting one-handed
a chair Eddie cannot budge. On
the night this critic went, the
scene was   fluffed,  for  Marco
could not  raise  the  chair and
had,    after    an    embarrassing
struggle,   to   cheat.   But,   this
apart, once Marco has lifted the
chair,  once he  has confronted
the cowed Eddie with this symbolic display of strength, there
is no need of a fanfare to point
up his achievement and the situation.     We   get  the  message.
The obvious can be overstated.
Then there is the business of
the imaginary door.  This may
seem a quibble, but the seemingly    unimportant   action    of
opening   a   door   which   isn't
there can grow out of all proportion  as the  audience  waits
breathlessly to see whether the
next actor will enter the room
with the door wrapped around
him, tucked under his arm, or
framing  his  neck—as it  must
have    done    when    Catherine
dashed through it without even
the slightest acknowledgement
of  its presence.     Either  teach
your actors to open the damn'
thing, or cut it out altogether.
One has learned    that    loud
huzzahs! and other eructations
of acclaim greeted this production    on the    final night,  and
must again wonder at the more-
or-less   accurate   judgment   of
au audience composed largely,
one must suppose, of readers of
Jack Richards   and   Les Wed-
man and auditors of the common Vancouver theatre  offerings.  For  it  was  very  nearly
very  good;   and suffered only
from   over-embellishment.   On
the author's part, the writing-in
has been  done;  unless he  expands it to a    realistic    three-
acter, his bolt is shot. But on
the    director's    part, remedies
may be applied before the play
is repeated    at    the    Regional
Drama   Festival   in    May,    in
which case it may well sweep
the board.
At the Orpheum Theatre last
Wednesday evening the touring
company of C. Edwin Knill and
Martin Tahse presented William Inge's "The Dark at the
Top of the Stairs," with Joan
Blondell as the sole big name
acting attraction.
The story, like the small
town setting in Oklama of the
1920's, is simple enough. Rubin
Flood, of pioneer stock and
ranch background, loses his job
as harness salesman when his
company is forced out of business by the automobile age. Rubin's wife, Cora, resentful of
Rubin's enjoyment of his domestic freedom while on the
road, tries to badger him into
settling for and into a nice job
in town where he will be home
every night to help her with
the children, and.where, incidentally, she can keep her eye
on him. This basic difference
in attitude between the two
truer and happier evaluation of
Rubin and of their children.
This is all very •well for the
four main characters, but during their satisfactory resolution
in a play advertised as a comedy, the too good to be true but
still likeable young Jewish boy,
Sammy Goldenbaum, is driven*
to suicide by an incident of social ostracization, and the very
real marital problem of Lottie
and her husband Morris is left
untouched and in a state so unsatisfactory that they have not
lived in intimacy for over three
years. As an additional impediment to this particular production the billed star Miss Blondell, had her stage appearance confined to the second act
and, after winning the audience's sympathy, must walk
off to return to her empty life
as the wife of a dentist, instead of a husband and a house
full of cats to take the place of
mies of the ultimate success of
The Dark at the T
has caused much stormy weather during their seventeen years
of marriage, and has contributed to the social maladjustment of the two children, sixteen - year - old Reenie, who
buries her fears of social failure
in her piano and the library,
and elevenyear-old Sonny who
satisfies his desire for friendship by being an avid movie
fan. Through the suicide of a
young Jewish boy,' Reenie
learns that she is not the only
one suffering from extreme social sensitivity; as he see his
parents draw closer together,
Sonny turns to Reenie for immediate compaionship, and, to
complete the cycle, understanding the very deep but camouflaged trouble in her sister Lottie's marriage, Cora comes to a

•obstacle to the success of the
play is the blurred character
outline of Cora, a woman too
emotionally involved with her
children, yet capable of re*
proaching Reenie with being a
partial cause of Sammy's death;
so protective of Sonny that she
rushes out in frantic defense
whenever the neighbourhood
boys taunt him, (which teasing
comes all too pat and immediate when Sonny leaves the
house), yet strangely undisturbed by Reenie's association
with Flirt, an appropriately
named young flapper, or by

Jazz . . . .
#%,F.     JAN.  31
The ever-increasing role that
Jazz is playing in the world of
music and entertainment is becoming more evident to all of
us. Who has not heard of Peter
Gunn, Staccato, and other
heroes of "television-land" who
are taking advantage of the
current craze of having the
"far-out" sounds of composed
Jazz accompanying them on
their many and varied exploits
throughout the world of crime
and beatnikdom?
As a result of this popularizing of Jazz, people are becoming more aware and more interested in the music and the exponents of the Jazz idiom. One
question which always seems
to puzzle laymen when they
are introduced to Jazz is; just
what is Jazz?
In answering this question,
one overriding principle must
be established. Jazz is a music
which, in order to be understood, must be felt. It may be
termed a "musicians' music," in
that it was created not to satisfy the listening public, but primarily for the musician's own
When a musician plays' jazz
he plays for himself and himself alone. His instrument is a
tool in his hands, with which
he unleashes his inward self
and expresses it in the music
which he plays, or his music
may serve as a medium through
which he can express his interpretation of that which he sees.
Thus we can see that the sound
which comes forth is not merely music, it is the artist himself.
Most Jazz which is played today is based on the theme of a
conventional commercial piece
of music. The musician plays
the score as it is written for the
first few bars, but then leaves
the theme, and through changes
in tempo and mood, through
syncopation, improvization, and
musical progressions interprets
the piece as he so desires. The
way in which a musician interprets the same piece may vary
from time to time, depending
a great deal on his mood and
outlook each time.
The chief characteristic of
jazz is the rhythm, which puts
forth the feeling of climbing or
moving steadily ahead, not like
latin american music which
gives one the feeling of going
up and down in the same place.
We should probably mention
here a branch of jazz which' is
often considered as being different from ordinary jazz; tHis
of course' is Bop. Bop should
actually be looked upon as a
dialect of the jazz language,
having the same basis as jazz;
free improvization over a regular purse. The soloist impro-
vizes under the same rules as
in more diatonic jazz, but on
the harmonies, rather than the
melody, which gives him proportionately larger areas of
Described above is what may
be called authentic jazz, which
unfortunately is not always
heard in the present world of
jazz. Many musicians are taking advantage of jazz and exploiting or commercializing it
at the expense of art. And indeed it has often been said that
jazz is the only original contribution that America has made
to art.        —GARY KEENAN. gg,l%8

sometimes slipping western accent, was not infrequently the
only saving feature of moments
of dull dialogue. The somewhat

Billed as the attraction of
the show, Joan Blondell was at
least the undoubtedly star of
the second act. She filled the
part of the impulsive and talkative Lottie to the hilt, played
to the audience frankly and
outrageously, and squeezed out
the last shreds of humour available in every line. Yet her
quiet exchange across the table
with Cora had pathos as well
as laughs in it, and her wholesale dominance of the scene
was yielded instantly and completely to Sammy for his short
stage appearance. If the restrictions of Miss BlondelPs
role did not enable her to illuminate the unexplained dark
at the top of the play's stairs,
at least the rest of the stage
would have been a duller place
without her.
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow.
And    everywhere   that    Mary
The lamb was sure to go.
It followed her to school  one
It was against the rule.
It made the children laugh and
To see the lamb at school.
The masterpiece above, the
merit of which'has only recently been recognized, is a brilliant example of a modern
poem, combining as it does traditional form with clearly realized thought and technique.
Seldom-has a poem been written which compresses so much
meaning into so few words,
and the difficulty of accomplishing this within the somewhat narrow bounds of traditional rhyme and meter should
be clearly understood if the
reader is to feel the full impact of the poet's art. There is
much that could be said about
this poem, but it is intended
here to interest ourselves only
in the superbly integrated symbolism, and in order to see
just how effective this symbolism is, it is intended that we
undertake a line-by-line analysis.
In the frst line, "Mary" is
obviously a reference to the
Blessed Virgin, and the suspicion that Christian symbolism
is to be used throughout the
poem is reinforced at the end
of the line by the reference to
the "little lamb." Here we have
the connotations of "gentle
Jesus, meek and mild" as well
as the obvious reference to
Christ as the Lamb of God. In
this interpretation, the line
could factually (albeit somewhat prosaically) be para-.
phrased, "Mary, the Blessed
Virgin, gave birth to the Lamb
of God."
The second line's reference to
fleece reinforces the lamb
symbol, while "white" and
"snow" connote the purity and
the awful majesty of the Deity
Incarnate. It should be mentioned that the emphasis on the
Virgin Mary would indicate
that the author is used to thinking in these terms, which
would serve as a reasonably
sound basis for the inference
that he is a Roman Catholic.
This will be mentioned again
The ironic third line clearly
indicates that when Mary went
to the arms of the Maker she
was followed by Jesus, a point
which is theologically questionable, but which adds considerably to the poem. The possible
Catholicism of the poet is increasingly evident, or at least
increasingly strongly suggested,
by the continuing primacy of
the Virgin. The idea is repeated, subtly, in the first line of
the second stanza, but is transcended by the hints that by this
time, presumably in our own
century, the lamb has passed
Mary. This would seem to refer
to their present relative theological importance. It can be
noted that this line's tone is not
one of unqualified approval,
which might refer to Protestantism and the Reformation
and the ensuing emphasis ' on
Jesus rather than Mary in the
Protestant sects.
The last two lines conclude
the poem with a reference to
the joy of Christians everywhere at their realization of the
meaning of the crucifixion and
to their gift of eternal life.
There are overtones, in this, of
Shakespeare's The Merchant of
Venice, in which Shylock is
recompensed for the loss of his
worldly possessions with the
gift of eternal life. At this point
there is no suggestion of difference among Christians as to
dogma and sectarianism, and it
would appear that the poet
realizes that the message of
Christianity is a message for
all, and that the joy of the
Christian life and the Christian
promises are not confined to
one group, but transcend all
groups and apply universally*.
It is a short poem but, I
think, a poem packed with intense emotion and universal
significance. It hints at the entire Christian story and is most
explicit about much of that
story. Through the brilliance of
its technique, it conveys a
powerful image of the meaning
of the Christian story, and it is
worth noting that this is a type
of poem which is out of favor;
writers now seem to avoid both
the subject matter and the traditional form of this poem.
Surely this poem is evidence
that this is an esthetic vein
which has many riches yet to
be yielded; when this type of
poetry is still being produced
it becomes quite apparent that
this vein has not been entirely
worked over.
One can only conclude this
essay with admiration and with
deep regret that the author
chose not to reveal his identity.
We will look forward with
great anticipation to learning
the poet's identity and to reading more of his work.

Dear Sir:
There is one thing that
the students of our university can be thankful for,
and that is that the blue-
coated rabble who have
had themselves appointed
to govern the student body
have not yet succeeded in
completely infiltrating the
Ubyssey; the Critic's Page
at least is free. There is nowhere else, I understand,
that a person may say what
he thinks about student
council, except on your
once weekly double spread.
I wish' that it might be used
for a great deal more of
this sort of criticism. Perhaps you could find some
space to explain the following rumours: 1. That Peter
Meekison had the Votes
juggled in his favour in order to become president of
A.M.S. 2. That a considerable amount of money was
spent to insure the election
of Russel Brink to council.
3. That the editor of the
Ubyssey has no legal right
to hold his position, as his
scholastic record is open to
question. 4. That sums of
money were spent on various bonds issued by provincial government, said
money from the student
treasury, without the knowledge or permission of th®
student body.

Women's Basketball League to 4 games by downing UBC's
hard-fighting Thunderettes 53-49, Wednesday night.
The Thunderettes, who were leading 17 to 10 at the end
of the first quarter, could not hold down Richmond's second
quarter charge. The Merchants poured in 20 points to UBC's
nine to grab a 30-36 lead at the half.
It was a fast, hard-fought con-1
test, and the issue remained in
doubt until the final whistle.
Diane Beach played her usual
steady game and accounted for
15 of the UBC points. Aane Liad-

the key factor in pulling thran
past the fast-improwing Varsity
squad. They have twice asisssny
players with Senior A experience.
