Fulton Reviews Tory Policy
Justice iMnister Davie Fulton yesterday addressed the
Law Faculty as ''a lawyer talking to lawyers" on the subject
of the Government's new Bill
of Rights.
Answering criticism that the
Bill does nothing new, Fulton
pointed out that it does all that
the government intended it to
do in simply writing down
those freedoms that Canadians
feel are fundamental to them.
' He challenged the idea that
an unwritten philosophy of personal freedoms could possibly
do more to.t insure, the continued safety of the individual,
pointing to changing concepts
of :"the highest good" throughout  history.
cawXdian freedom
The Bill will also be invaluable as a message tOjfree people
abroad, showing .them what
i Canadians mean when they talk
of basic human rights, he said.
This is especially important in
a cold war where the^ terms
'liberty' and 'freedom' are often
distorted to mean things far
removed from our traditional
understanding of them.
Fulton pointed out that the
argument most often advanced,
that the B i 11 is hot beyond
reach of amendment by future
parliaments is not really any
criticism at all. Since the statutes of Parliament are, in
theory at least, the expressed
will of the majority within the
country, any attempt to place
any law beyond the reach of
such a free people would itself
be a tyrranny upon them.
Questioned as to the efficacy
of the  Bill   insofar  as   it does

Ricker Raps
Student vandalism may have
wrecked one chance of rectifying the overcrowded food service situation on campus.
Eric Ricker, student food services committee chairman said
that vending machine companies are reluctant to put their
machines on campus because
students have tampered with
them in past.
Such macnines would allow
students with bag lunches to
get coffe, soup, milk, etc. in
campus buildings. This would
make possible the use of buildings as miniature cafeterias.

administration in an effort to

Ross Cragie, Co-Ordinator of
Publications and a non-voting
member of the Council, foresaw
an orderly meeting with no contentious issues being raised.
Items that would prabably
lOome up for discussion, said
Cragie, would be UBC's membership in the Canadian University Press, a report from the
returned delegates on the National Federation of Canadian
University Students' Congress
in Halifax and matters relating
to the AMS budget.

the  Auditorium.
"But instead, and believe me
it was a distinct shock, we had
a recession on our hands."
"We have now re-established
financial equilibrium", he said.
"We still have an unemployment problem, but we intend
to embark on measures to improve it, through our National
development policy."
Fulton said the government
intends to continue seasonal
works projects to provide employment and hopes that

The government put aside
it's long term development
plan for the time being, Fulton
said, to implement the short
term projects, but in so doing
took a risk of inflation through
deficit financing.
"It came too, . . . but we met
it, and have now stopped it."

If Is An Art
"No one ea$ take a simple concept and make it difficult to understand as .often as my professor does," said
one disgruntled summer school student.
"It would do some of these jokers good to teach elementary school for a few years," said another.
"If I taught like that in my grade eleven, I'd be out
in a week."
Such were some of the comments from teachers attending this year's summer session at U.B.C.
If such statements are indicative of the quality and
teaching ability of some of the professors at this university
a reason, should be sought, and possible remedies investigated.
One reason is that there is perhaps an over-emphasis
of the research sciences: Where should the professor of the
research sciences place his emphasis, on his research, or
on his teaching? Since he is hired as a professor it is our
opinion that his emphasis should be on the latter.
This question applies in a lesser extent to all other
It is a r-ecognized fact that all high school teachers
must make careful preparations before they present their
material to their classes. Why then should university professor not take the same pains) with the material he is to
It will be argued that the university student is much
more able to fend for himself. This argument is in part
valid. The university student does, however, need help and
for this he turns to his professors;
It is therefore far more vital that the instructor at the
university level be at least as well versed in the art of
teaching as his secondary school counterpart. The university student's need for clear, concise instruction is
greater than, that of the high school student who is spoonfed, most of his academic life.
It might therefore be suggested that a short course
for professors in instructional methods would be of great
value both to the professor and student.
(Editor's note: The following editorial is reprinted
from the Sept. 24, 1957
edition of the Ubyssey. We
consider it topical and believe it bears reprinting.)
The question is not a simple: "Should there be entrance examinati ons at
■ It goes much further than
that. It probes into the financial support the university receives from private
industry, from the government, from the people
whose children may or may
not appear someday on campus.
It dwells on the relative
benefits to society gained
from, on the one hand, a
large group of fairly well-
educated leaders .
It glances at the high
school graduates and wonders if they are capable of
learning and giving most of
their learning without first
gaining experience in a
world away from academic
circles. It even eyes the professors, and inquires regarding their merits and motivation.
The question is a difficult
one and a contentious one.
For some, the academic
future of Canada is at stake,
and it is too sacred a property to be sacrificed to the
mass-conscious wheels of
democracy. And to others,
the democratic methods of
allowing equal opportunity
to all are of more importance than the products that
would result from an intellectual elite.
It is a question which is
of great importance on this
campus where overcrowding
and a high failure rate suggest that some revision of
present entrance requirements is necessary if any
students currently enrolled
are,to receive a bare education.

I see in the morning papers
that an Ontario Police Magistrate dismissed a complaint
laid against a young man for
'pawing' a girl, commenting,
"Did the young lady in the bikini expect her companion in
the parked car to be reading
the 'Financial Post'?"
Aside from the rather crude
slur on what is, to its devotees,
a journal of high excitement
and readability, I wonder what
would have happened had the
young man in question, con
fronted with the choree, stopped for the "Financial Post?"
It would seem that the young
lady would then have a legal
ground of complaint. A romantic concept indeed, in this "era
of the commerce-man".
So then Norman sez to me ... "I have a solution to
the parking, Pete ..."
Letters To The Editor
It will come as a great relief
to many of the campus bureaucrats to see that the Ubyssey
has finally placed an identify
ing sign upon its seedy basement retreat in the North of
the Brock. The trend towards
classification and pigeon-holing
contiues unchecked.

It is rumored amogst us that
our Registrar, Mr. Parnell favours student parking "as close
as possible" to the campus, provided that all central lots are
reserved for the faculty and
staff; whereas Mr. Hughes of
Building and Grounds would
have all student parking in the
perimeter areas of the Univer.
It should be possible to effect
a compromise between these
two extremes.
UBC   Radio   Under   Fire
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
It has been tentatively resolved to discontinue broadcasting of the hour-long
"Works of the Masters" program.
It has been the tradition,
for several years, for Radsoc
to present in this hour a
wide diversification of the
Classical works in music,
and it has been received by
many, I am sure, as a welcome relief from the boisterous and often harshly discordant music to which Radsoc devotes much of the rest
of it time, received as such
especially by those who
know and like the Classics,
and who are able to take
full advantage of this hour
to snatch a few moments of
relaxation and restful study,
against a background of
familiar sounds far more
conducive to study and rest
than anything now being
presented by Radsoc.
Each year, or at least for
each of the four years which
I have witnessed, the level
of quality of music presented by the University radio
society has declined, and
this I feel can be attributed
to the continued influx of
new students whose tastes
in music have been degraded, in my estimation at least,
by an over-exposure to
"Rock-n-Roll" and generally
to that family of low types
of music which prevailed
during and since the years
when the present first, second, and third year students
were in their early 'teens, a
period of their lives in
which they were highly susceptible, during which time
they formed a great many
of their prejudices and
And now this process has
culminated in the resolution
to discontinue "Works of the
Masters" unless there is
sufficient demand to the
contrary. I for one should
hate to see this program
dropped, both because I
enjoy the music myself, and
because this hour seems to
me to be a last-ditch outpost against the inimical
musical tastes which this
campus has developed. I be-
many more who feel as 1

A Joy Not of This World
At fifty-two, ravaged by
poverty, psychosomatic apoplexy, prosecutions for libel
and indecency, persecution
(both real and imagined), his
own uncommon principles,
and two absorbingly stormy
marriages, August Strindberg
was gloriously able to fall in
love with a twenty-two year
old actress and to write for
her a play in which his former
preoccupation with the apparently futile struggle between
the sexes and the "sickness
unto death" gave way to the
mystic themes of expiation
and forgiveness. The young
actress was Harriet Bosse, the
role she was to play was that
of Eleanora, and the play was
A month ago, the Summer
School of the Theatre revived
Easter, and was fortunate
enough to have Susan Ring-
wood to play Eleanora. Miss
Ringwood alternated, in this
role with Clare Philips, whose
performance I was not able to
see; but I cannot believe it to
have been better than her colleague's, any more than I can
believe in miracles. Mind you,
miracles happen; perhaps Miss
Philips officiated in one; I cannot know. Susan Ringwood's
performance was something
less than miraculous •— her
voice ended too many sentences on an upward inflection,
and she needs to explore and
develop her lower registers to
avoid monotony of tone—but
it was compellingly beautiful.
I would like very much to see
this actress in other roles, for
her inclusion in this production was a piece of excellent
casting, and there are not very
many parts which call for this
same blend of excited happiness, serenity, and tremulous
compassion. Perhaps Miss
Ringwood was just being herself. If so, she must be delightful   to   know.
There are pitfalls to playing
Eleanora. There is a temptation to make her too fey, and

then a line like "Listen to the
telephone wires singing —
that's because the lovely red
copper wire can't bear the
words that people use," will
draw titters, even when-given
in Swedish. There is another
temptation, this time to make
her smug, which turns a line
like "Poor Elis! Poor all of
us. But it's Easter, and we
must suffer," into a real
shocker. Susan Ringwood resisted, and reaped the reward:
a characterisation strikingly
like that of the old-young girl
created by Strindberg.
Eleanora's premature wisdom finally strengthens her
family against a blow that
never falls. She returns from
the lunatic asylum to find the
Heysts—her mother and her
brother—paralysed by humiliation and guilt; for their
father has been imprisoned
for embezzlement. A living
symbol of Christian resignation, Eleanora teaches them—
or rather, loves them into believing — that their suffering
has meaning, and will some
day have surcease. But now,
"It's Easter, and we must
suffer." Her brother Elis is
her hardest case; in the course
of the play, she has hardly
enough time to convert him;
it remains for Lindkvist, the
looming shadow, to astonish
the boy into acceptance and
gratitude. This happens during a climactic scene, the last
major scene of the play, and
in the Summer School production one which provided some
interesting contrasts. Elis was
played by Elie Savoie, quite
badly. His diction was extremely poor — even with a
script, it was difficult to
recognize "Anaunyrsgan" as
meaning "and now one year's
gone"—his posture bad, and
his emotional plane unwar-
rantedly high. It ought to have
been high in the climaxes, yes,
but he started so fiercely (perhaps a directorial fault) that
he had nothing left in reserve
when he needed it. Lindkvist
.'was .played by Fraser Boa,
and played quite well. He was
made up for a large theatre,
his lake liner visible from
the last row of the Freddy
Wood, and he wiggled his
head in time with his words,
but otherwise his voice and
h;is body seemed his to do
what he would with, and what
he would looked good on

al bleat was intelligible, sandwiched between a muffling
arm and a banging head. Mr.
tBr'ocl^ington will take some
of the credit for the successful
.performances, of course, and
may also be commended for
the music and lighting effects,
which were perfect. His direction was suitably naturalistic, except in one instance:
when Lindkvist drew near the
Heyst house, his footsteps and
fane-tappings were augmented
by a muffled drum. I can find
nothing about a muffled drum
in Strindberg's stage directions, and would be surprised
if I could, because this would
seem to be a departure from
the naturalistic convention.
The idea is, of course, that
Lindkvist represents more uf
a threat to the family man
than an ordinary mortgage-
forecloser; symbolically, he is
their nemesis, although, as we
finally discover, a benevolent
one. But the nemesis aspect is
obvious from the lines; we
want no rumble of a none-too-
distant drum.
Valerie Neilson made a substantial fiancee for Elis, a
Kristina whose only inconsistency was a tendency to overreact not looked for in so
common-sensical a girl; Michael Morrow was a subdued but
well thought out Benjamin;
while   Eileen   Williams,   who
played Mrs. Heyst, gave us a
straigntf orward c a r i cature
from the weekend actor's
manual: woman, aging,
middle-class, hard life, none
too bright.
It's a pity she couldn't infuse some spirit into Mrs.
Heyst, for Strindberg has
given this character a line
which, correctly spoken, is the
key to the play. "She has
come back with joy, but not
joy of this world!" she says
of Eleanora, and continues:
"Her unrest has been turned
into peace, which she shares
with all of us. Sane or not,
for me she is wise, for she
knows how to bear the burdens of this life as we do not."
Eleanora's joy is not of this
world, which so often equates
this emotion with freedom
from such burdens.- Her joy
lies in her acceptance of difficulties, which in turn brings
her freedom from the sterility
of worry. The Heysts we realise, will not live happily ever
after, for nobody does, but
they may share their daughter's joy, for she has made
them — and us — realise that
difficulties are as essential to
living as the air we breathe;
which also presses upon us,
a stone to each square foot.

and James Domville will describe the formation and future
plans of the newly created
National School of Theatre of
Canada. All interested are
invited to attend, for this is
an important development in
Canadian Theatre.
The School which, in terms
of curriculum and faculty, will
be one of the best in the world,
is the long-needed answer for
Canadians seeking advanced
professional training for careers in the theatre. Hitherto,
to obtain such training, they
had to go either to England or
the United States. In future it
will   be   available  in  Canada.
The directors are in Vancouver to conduct auditions
for British Columbia actors
seeking admittance to the
School this November. Well
over    a    hundred     applicants
Players Club
Player's Club auditions will
be held on Thursday and Friday October 1st and 2nd, from
noon until 5:30, and on Saturday October 3rd, from 10 a.m.
until 5:00 p.m. The club stresses
that actors are always needed
and welcome. Disport with the
lights of local amateur and
professional theatre.
have been auditioned across
Canada. Fifteen English speaking and fifteen French speaking actors will be accepted for
this first year.
Jean Gascon, himself an
accomplished actor, is the director of the internationally
known Theatre du Nouveau
Monde in Montreal. Powys
Thomas is a distinguished
actor who, among many other
engagements, has played several seasons with each of the
Young Vic Company, Strat-
for - upon - Avon, and the
Shakesperian Festival in Stratford, Ontario. The meeting
will provide opportunities to
ask questions of these gentle
men and of Mr. Domville.

to see Fonteyn I would
point out that Fredrick Ashton
choreographed Birthday with
Fonteyn especially in mind.
The point, of course, is that
at some time or another everybody will be able to see Sleeping Beauty, if they want to,
but Birthday and Fille are
rarities that ought to be missed by nobody who considers
himself to be at all culturally
aware, and who is given the
opportunity of attending. To
miss either would be on a par
to missing, say, the November
appearance of the London
Intimate  Opera.
I suppose that, yet again, we
must look to the box office to
take the blame. No doubt
about it, Sleeping Beauty is
spectacular, popular, and so a
guaranteed success. La Fille
Mai Garde and Birthday
Offering are both quite unknown here, and even the
chance to see Fonteyn and all
the principle soloists together
would not assure Famous Artists Limited a profitable engagement of the company.
Well, there it is, and we
must be grateful for what
we've got. At least there is
Antigone, and it will be interesting to see how John Cranko
has solved the new choreographic problems involved. One
should'nt complain, really, I
suppose. After all, that half
loaf is in this case better than
no bread at all. Famous Artists
have bolstered an evening of
Antigone with Les Sylphides,
and the Royal Ballet has bolstered an evening of Sylphides
with Antigone.

There are many different
aspects from which both to
attack and to defend this
year's Summer School Theatre
production of Camino Real.
Firstly, I feel about Camino
Real much the same way as
I feel about King Lear: both
are extremely powerful works,
complex networks of controversial ideas which involve
profound social criticism. Because of this complexity, they
are both works which demand
close attention if they are to
be understood, and by this I
mean that they demand more
attention than do, for example,
Julius Caesar or Cat on a Hot
Tin Roof. But both are works
which are extremely difficult
to produce on the stage. They
are creative masterpieces but
whether or not they are good
drama is another question entirely. The dramatic difficulty
with King Lear is, of course,
the characterization of Lear
himself. Such a massive character, so complex as to be at
times almost non-corporeal, is
extremely difficult if not impossible to portray on the
The dramatic difficulty with
Camino    Real  does   not   stem
from   any single  characterization,   certainly   not from  that
of Kilroy, whom I suppose we
might  call  the central   character if not   the hero.  Rather,
the    difficulty    with    Camino
Real seems   to stem from  the
particular form of the drama.
The picaresque   is   at   best   a
very  difficult  dramatic  form.
Even   the  best   of  picaresque
drama, Peer Gynt for example,
is  very   difficult   to   produce
successfully. But if, as in Camino Real, there is not even a
strong    central    character    by
whom    the    theme   and    the
dramatic tension can be maintained,    the     difficulties    are
almost insurmountable  if one
is   to    produce    good   drama.
Neither Kilroy, nor any other
character in this play, formed
the  pivot  around   which   the
play revolves. Rather, it relies
on theme alone for its continuity, and although the various
characters, particularly in the
longer   monologues    such    as
those   of Byron,   Camille,   and
the old woman,  all give various facets of the theme, dramatic tension is not maintained.
The dialogue, and particularly
the long  monologues,  are frequently tedious   and uninspiring. The language tends to be
abstract rather than  concrete;
unfortunately the theatre-goer
does   not   have    to   decipher,
never mind be affected by,
such highly abstract lines as,
"Everyone loves declivity"
Therefore, like King Lear,
a real appreciation for the
play can best be got by reading rather than by watching
and listening. These are plays
about ideas, and it is the ideas
rather than the characters
which are in conflict. Both
Lear and Camino Real reflect
shadowy, intellectual worlds
of the abstract. Good drama
must somehow embody ideas
in characters who can move,
introduce, and resolve the conflict with which the playwright is concerned. Neither
King Lear nor Camino Real do
this   successfully.
Unfortunately, the Summer
School production suffered
also from the fact that many
of the actors did not seem even
superficially to embody the
ideas they were meant to represent. Many of the monologues, again particularly
those of Byron and Camille,
appeared to be merely mouthed. Granted, many of the
actors were inexperienced, but
nevertheless if dramatic tension was to be maintained, the
actors should have tried to
feel, understand, and be the
embodiment of the abstract
concepts which they represented. This did not appear to
be the case.
Byron's characterization
was not strong enough or rebellious enough to be believable as Byron. He was more
like the idealized image of
Keats fostered by the nineteenth century aesthetes; certainly he was not the man who
swam the Hellespont in order
to parallel the feats of legendary Leander.
Nor was Ailleen Barker's
Camille a satifactory portrayal. Here was not the grande
dame of the salon, the courtesan par excellence, but a
rather cantankerous and unfeeling female with a decidedly practical, not to say almost earthly, attitude. This
Camille was more like Madame Bovary than like Camille,
even the Camille-Violetta of
the decidedly Romantic and
sentimental La Traviata.
Both Byron, and Camille
suffered from technical defects as well. Byron would
never have limped so noticeably as he did in this production. Byron went through excruciating pain,  both physical
and mental, to avoid appearing to be the club-footed brat
his mother so affectionately
termed him. And who ever
heard of a Camille dressed in
slate-grey? White would surely have been best, but failing
this, at least  a pastel colour.
There were several very
good characterizations, however. Don Quixote was well
portrayed although Mr. Hod-
kinson's dialect accent somewhat detracted from his characterization.
In summary then, Camino
Real, was an ambitious undertaking. It is a difficult play
because of its abstract nature
and its picaresque form. It is
an early Williams' play, and
like Shakespear's Titus And-
ronicus, is probably better left
unproduced. The technical aspects of the production, staging, scenery, and lighting,
were excellent. The acting,
however, left much to be desired, athough I feel that the
abstract language of the play
would tax the ability of even
the most experienced actor or
actress. The Camino Real in
California has been superceded by the freeway; Camino
Real has been superceded by
far grater dramas. Both Cam-
inos are outdated and better
left alone, but if used at all,
better used by a minority interested in sightseeing than by
a majority interested in fast,
smoothly flowing action.

Fulton pointed out that the Bill

judges of Canada, instructing
them to regard all enactments
of Parliament in the light Of the.

In this manner, any Canadian
citizen who feels that a statute
violates a fundamental right of
his as an individual, may bring
an action to have that provision
set aside.
Only when Parliament itself
expressly provides that'. certain
rights of the individual are to
be abrogated _ despite the provisions of the Bill of Rights will
any judge not be justified in

enforcing the Bill is an informed public opinion, said Fulton. No criminal action could
lie against a civil servant who

in particular the infamous War
Measures Act, in search of provisions now in conflict with the

When the world speaks of genius it is seldom
long before the personality of Albert Einstein
makfcs its presence felt. So profound was his
contribution to science that scarcely another
o&ntemporary mind can be compared to his.
Albert Einstein's life was a paradox. Few
could understand how such revolutionary
theories could be so authoritatively advanced
by such a quiet and unassuming man. But his
ability belied his manner. His preoccupation
with things that were remote and abstract only
served to sharpen his understanding of those
around him. It was this ability to understand
that gave mankind the theory of relativity and
opened the door to the nuclear age."
The character of Albert Einstein illustrates i
powerful truth: that the humility and understanding of 'people always make the significant \
difference. We, at "The Bank", hold this philosophy in great respect. We are proud of our
people and consider them our greatest single
