Professors  Discuss Africa
Commonwealth Tour
Shows Current Problems
By DIANE GREENALL ;
"The most hopeful approach to the African crisis is a doctrine of equal chance for all civilized men and equal chance for
all men to become civilized."
So said Prof. Davies of UBC's History Department  at a
noon hour lecture yesterday entitled "Africa: Black or White".

Meet Student Cards
By DAVE TAYLOR
More than 4,000 AMS cards have been distributed to students this week.
Crowds of students have jammed Brock Hall all week long
waiting for their cards.

Edgar Attends
WUS Assembly
AMS President Dave Edgar
left UBC this morning to attend
the WUS National Assembly at
Kingston.
"This will be the first time
that a UBC student • president
ihas been present at t)he assembly.
Student Council felt that Edgar should be present in view
of the importance of the Assembly and the amount of student
money received by WUS.
Every year WUS gets $1 per
student'.from the AMS fee, plus
$2,000 from Administration — a
total of $13,500.
LIAISON FOR NFCUS
It was also felt that, because
of NFCUS affairs, Edgar might
promote closer liaison between
the two organizations.
Edgar was one of the UBC
delegates at the NFCUS National Congress held to Halifax
recently, which was attended by
representatives from all Canadian universities.
Speaking before Council Monday night, WUS Chairman Ruth
Kidd said the UBC branch was
running the largest scholarship
program, and was possibly the
most important Canadian committee.
Today is the last day the
cards will be distributed in the
spacious hall.
Next week distribution will
be in the publications office
with more than 4,000 cards still
to be given out.
One fustrated distributor said
that cards were missing from
files, causing confusion, grief
and loss of temper to those who
lined up for half an hour only
to find their card is not there.
WAIT 10 MINUTES
However, if your card is there
the service is going at full speed
and the wait is usually about
10 minutes.
The usual remarks were
passed by those waiting in line.
"What did you think of the ball
game" . . . "but it doesn't look
like me, I want a retake" . . .
"how old will you make yourself on your card" . . . "21?"
AMS officials said almost
2,000 student photographs had to
be taken or re-taken.
Array 01 Speakers
Prepared For Year
Three Canadian university
presidents will speak in this
year's series of Vancouver Institute lectures.
Institute meetings will be
held in Bu. 106 at 8:15 p.m.
every Saturday, beginning October 15.
The three presidents are Dr.
Claude Bissell of Toronto, Dr.
A. Davidson Dunton of Carleton, and Dr. Murray G. Ross
of York.
Speakers scheduled for later
meetings include the Honourable Howard Green, minister
for external 'affairs; the Honourable Davie E. Fulton, minister
of justice; Dr. George Davidson,
deputy minister of citizenship
and immigration, and James M.
Minifee, journalist and author
from Washington, D.C.
the UN Club featured Dr. Conway, aso of our history department, and Professor Davies, who
has just returned from a year
countries, including four months
long tour of the' Commonwealth
in Africa.
"The speed of modern development has been bewildering
to the African people," stated
Davies. Great technical advances
exist side by side with primeval
ways."
"Even the Africans are critiz-
ing the whites for leaving them
in such a situation," said Davies.
"They were led like a bride up
to the church door and then
left to fend for themselves.."
AFRICA MUST GOVERN
Africa is unprepared to govern
herself. H«r new god of nationalism is now a force too strong
to be controlled, he said.
"No one can get far in African
politics unless they go on an
anti-white ticket," Davies said.
"In private a potential leader
will tell you that he wants the
whites to stay in the employ of
the blacks as professors and
technical advisors. His campaign
slogan however will read that
all white men must leave."
PRICE FOR SUCCESS
Professor Davies said there
was no civilization in Africa before the white man came.
"For success the white man
pays a price," he said. "The
blacks must pay the same price
if he wants to reach the same
scale."
"Some blacks are unwilling
to do this. They blame the
whites for the African failure
but are not prepared to make
the same  sacrifices.  Alibis are  stop abuses.
easier than work as far as some
Africans are concerned," he concluded. ^
Dry Davies said he met educated Africans who varied from
pretentious fools to intelligent
men whom he was very proud
to call his friends.
Dr. Conway suggested that
the helping hand of Africa
should be given to the UN.
"If we want to bring Africa
into the 20th century world we
must mobilize all our resources
for her development," he stated.
NEW DEVELOPMENT
"Now, we only give about
10c each for her development"
"Agencies for development must
be expanded and given new
blood," said Dr. Conway. He
said the West is unwilling M
sacrifice enough to do this.
Dr. Conday also pointed Out
that in the beginning the majority of countries who practice
colonialism were reluctant to
do so. "The rule of Africa by
Europe came a about to remedy
a far worse state of affairs," he
said. '
The scourge of slavery prevented any flourish of civilization from emerging in Africa,"
Said Dr. Conway. "Slave con-
voys of,20,000 persons annually
were shipped to India and
Arabia." "The reason for no
traces of this great population
transportation is probably because they were not allowed to
breed in captivity," Dr. Conway
stated.
The British government reluctantly came in to try to prevent the slave trade. It had to
provide   extensive   policing   to
Student's Story
"Blood Saved My Life
rr
First year engineering student Chris Lok tells hare how
his life was saved following an
industrial accident.
To allow our staff to enjoy
the Thanskgiving weekend the
Ubyssey will not publish
Tuesday.
Editions will be printed
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
By CHRIS LOK
My life was saved by Red
Cross blood.
During January 1959 I suffered a severe injury to my
arm, which resulted in an amputation.
After being rushed to hospital, "a blood test was taken
to find out my type of blood.
Within a half an hour blood
was administered to me as I
had lost a considerable amount
of my own.
The doctors were able to do
this because of the Red Cross
Blood Bank.
After the operation, I was
told that I had received several pints of blood. This, to
my mind had saved my life.
OBLIGATION
Would you give blood if one
of your loved ones was seriously injured, your girlfriend or boy-friend for instance?
Many of you would be all
too happy to give blood on
this occasion.
In view of this, I believe
that every healthy person has
a moral obligation to his fellow citizen.
Irregardless of inter-faculty
competition, go out and donate your blood.
After Thursday's donations
were calculated, this year's
total was still more than 1000
pints short of the 2,478 pint
goal.
Officials said Fort Camp
has shown best in the battle
of the residences, letting 125.5
percent of it's quota.
Percentages of quotas obtained by the faculties has
not been calculated. .

Gaest Editorial
The New Neutralism
Premier Khruschev's speech to the U.N. brought to
- light the importance of an emerging group of nations in
the world—the neutralists. Khruschev proposed that the
- present post of Secretary-General should be abolished,
and replaced by a triumvirate of representatives from the
West, the Communistic bloc, and the neutralists.
Neutralism is a new and dynamic force at work in international politics. More and more nations are prescribing
to this policy.
What' is neutralism? It is basically a policy of non-
r alignment with the two major blocs of the world, and the
pursuit of  a "middle course"  policy.
"Hie criticisms of this policy  have  been many. The
critics ask if there is any wisdom in a policy which invites
. the displeasure and the suspicion of both camps. It is not
'realistic, they ask, for a country to join a major bloc as
. an ally, and derive the full beimftts of such an association
economically, industrially, and in a big way to utilize the
£ technical and scientificr. resources thus brought within her
' reaeh? They claim the policy of neutralism is a negative
one, and that any eountry following it would-be reduced
■  to   a  level of  passivity. That  country would,   in their
opinion, become ineffectual and inane.
Nehru, the founder of this movement, who has steered
India clear   of  the   two   blocs   since Independence,  has
"countered this criticism by 'amplifying'and clarifying his
concept of the "middle course". He says it is not a nega-
' tive policy of *waitJand "see", of allowing things to drift
their own way in the hope*' every thing will square up in
the end. On the contrary, India1 would positively and con-
'.- stantly work for the "reconciliation of the warring camps,
for bridging the gulf between opposing groups, and thereby contribute to the establishriiettt, if not of actual peace,
at least of conditiOris in which rival parties would come together for negotiations'." Nehru  has  termed it  "dynamic
neutrality", or "active neutrality."
As the true purpose of neutralism is being realised, it
is now- receiving wide support from every corner of the
globe. This policy has been particularly appealing to the
new, independent nations of Africa and Asia. Newly independent countries of Ghana and Indonesia are the" most
recent followers of this course.
Why did these countries choose to follow a "middle
course" instead of joining one or other of the two blocs?
These two nations believe, like their sister neutral countries, India, United Arab Republic, Yugoslavia and Ceylon,
that every issue in the world should be settled on its merits
and demerits, and not froto selfish motives. These nations
would maintain anJ independent foreign policy,  and their
-attitudes and courses of action would be determined  by
balancing   the    following    three    considerations:    firstly;
" whether is is on the side of justice and truth; secondly,
'whether it "furthers the cause of universal peace and free-
dom; and thirdly, whether it is favourable to the particular
country's national interest.
The influence of the neutralist is steadily increasing
■throughout the world. Their opinions are heavily weighed
. at top-level meetings. With the support of the Afro-Asian
countries, the neutralists now hold the balance of power
in the United Nations. As they have become a major
force, the objects of their policy, such as the eradication
and racialism, and above all, the establishment of universal
peace, are indeed being fulfilled.

Letters To
The Editor
Sun Anti-American?
(Ed. Note: The Ubyssey received a carbon copy of this
letter sent to The Sun, and
feels that the views expressed
here are worth airing.)
The Sun:
Re: Article entitled "Foreign
Students Vocal About World
Affairs" appearing in issue of
Sept. 29, 1960.
To the Editor:
Thursday your newspaper
presented an article entitled
"Foreign Students Vocal About
World Affairs". The reader was
left with the impression) that
your UBC 'correspondent made
an injudicious selection in reporting several of the comments purportedly made by
foreign. studesiits at UBC's International House. If it is the
purpose of the correspondent
and, incidentally, of your newspaper to promulgate anti-American sentiments a more rational format might have been
evolved.
To who m does Miss Del-
bridge think that she is addressing her article? Surely the
average Canadian, regardless
of ihis opinions regarding international affairs, cannot but feel
insulted when tine reactions of
foreign sijudents sire presented
to him in the form of sopho-
mortic political invective.
With Mr! Kadarkay the
reader genuinely concurs. You
do %ave Wonderful people. It
is to be hoped that calibre of
intellect among foreign students is more closely reflected
by Mr. Kadarkay's unaffected
esteem for his new, howie than
by the adolescent sensationalism of several of the others
who have allowed themselves

Regarding the latest of a
long line of St. Georges eager
to do battle with the combined

to offer our mephistophelean

support.
As a car owner I would
rather see the Campus closed

STIMULUS
By MONTCALM P.OMMEL
For the benefit of those readers of last week's column
who were unable to read between the missing lines and
thought it was a bunch of sentimental drivel I shall remake
my point whinh was: That it is strange that those of us who
feel that life has no meaning whatsoever would suddenly feel
an overwhelming desire to make that girl who committed
suicide feel that life was important and want to make her
enjoy it.

Some people on a pre-Thanksgiving weekend carve up
a turkey. Two of my roommates of last year, who don't
exactly hold my views on Mr. Orwell, thought that my
article was foul enough to make an excellent substitute.
"Dear Editor of the Ubyssey" they write:
"We are pleased to see that the Ubyssey is at last selecting its staff on a purely democratic basis, with no reference
what ever to such a trivial matter as ability. For us, at least,
this seems to be the only way of accounting for Mr. Nixon's
presence on the Critics' Page. Mr. Nixon, with his usual
disregard for the English language and its literature, has
taken it upon himself to deify George Orwell.
Mr. Nixon bases his claim for Orwell's greatness on
that writer's ability to make the bulk of his readers identify
with his characters. By that token, how can anyone escape
the conclusion that-Bambi is the greatest literary masterpiece of all time? Or is it, perhaps, his ability to make Mt.
Nixon identify with his characters that ensures a writer's
greatness? If this be the ease, how can Mr. Nixon escape
the conclusion that Byron's Don Juan Is the finest literary
work in the English language?
With reference to Nineteen Eighty-Four Mr. Nixon asks
"if there is in the entire English language a passage of more
utterly and hopelessly terrifying despair than "the final page
of the novel." As a matter of fact, yes, there are many such
passages, even complete works. We humbly recommend that
Mr. Nixon read King Lear, The Second Coming, The Hollow
Men, Ape and Essence, as obvious examples. As for Mr.
Nixon's view that Animal Farm is by far-the greatest political
satire in our language (assuming he means English) we think
one Mr. Swift is being done a gross injustice. When Mr. Nixon
takes English 200 ...
Mr. Nixon says, "If we judge an artist on his ability to
make one feel, Orwell must stand high indeed." But if the
ability to make one feel is a valid criterion for judging art
even Mr. Nixon is a great artist, not to mention the person
who defaces lavatory walls with obscenities or landscapes
with, "Repent ye, sinners," "Are you saved',, and so forth.
We are intrigued by Mr. Nixon's view that Orwell is
probably the only artist of our age who will stand the test
of time. "Two hundred years from now, if there is still life
on this planet, when the Russian Revolution will have become
a vague fact in history, Animal Farm will still be enjoyed
by millions." Strange concepts of history and literature, Mr.
Nixon!
We feel justified in concluding that Mr. Nixon should,
if he must write at all, follow his hero's shining example
and do so under a pseudonym.

Also it is not wise to give your victim a chance to
squirm out by saying in his personal opinion "that "1948"
is more a picture of hopeless and terrifying despair than the
grandeur of language and insight of "Lear", the poetic
powers of Keats, the shallow unconcern of T. S. Elliot, or
the matter of fact bitterness of Mr. Huxley's satire. And you
definitely do not give your victim a chance to say that
"Animal Farm" is more direct, more powerful, and less
dependent upon an understanding of the time it was written
(and therefore a better work of art) than Gulliver's Travels".
And finally, you definitely do not give your victim
an opportunity to reply "But gentlemen, is there not a difference in the kind of feeling for literature than the feeling
of some people for religious expressions or obscenities on
public lavoritories? And, by the way, if you destroy personal
feeling as a criterion, just what do you judge art by?"
A note on carving: When carving up a specimen, gentlemen, you must always remember that no matter how sharp
your blade is each thrust must have a target, so that you
do not let your victim squirm out. For instance, you should
not cite "Bambi" as a masterpiece, if reader identification is
to be that standard, or the victim might reply "But do we
let children set our literary standards." Or do you not cite
"Don Juan" as an example of personal identification when
with one look at my amour record anybody would say "Not
even he could have that much imagination."
However, gentlemen, this is your first turkey of the
year, and even if he has managed to stagger away, and he
is by no means sure that he has, you may be sure that you
will have many more opportunities to have him back on your
dissecting stable. Friday, October 7, 1960

System Suggested
By IAN BROWN
The Student Parking Committee will ask Student Council
to recommend that Administration set up a new parking fines
appeal system.
This committee, set up by
Council Monday night, met in
Brock Hall yesterday under
Councillor Alan Cornwall.
All members felt that the
present system was inadequate,
for several reasons.
. First, it is not impartial; appeals are heard by the superintendent of B u i 1 d iln g s and
Grounds, to whom -ifines are
paid, and who therefore has a
financial interest in each caie.
Also, while everyone present
had a high regard for the Superintendent's ability, they agreed
that he was too overworked to
devote sufficient time to each
case.
Secondly, little is known :
about the present system. The
committee felt that more students would protest injustices if
they knew where to go and
who to see.
Thirdly, the appeal machinery
is not easily accessible; appeals
are heard only in the last Monday of every month, and re-appeals must be submitted in
writing to the Administration
Parking  Committee.
John Fulford, the student
whose complaint to Council
sparked off this enquiry, had
his car towed away on Sept.
30, and must wait until Oct.
31 before his appeal will be
heard.
Fulford's car was removed
from a residential parking lot
before stickers had been issued.

Hazing Prank Fatal;
Student Dies In Eust
OTTAWA (CUP), Oct. 5—The
perennial problem of hazing is
being revived since the death
Friday of 19-year-old Michael
Levine who collapsed during
Freshman Week at Sir George
Williams University in Montreal.
Levine, who apparently had
a history of heart trouble, died
after he ran from the university
to Phillips Square in downtown
Montreal imitating the Australian miler Herb Elliott.
Dressed in shorts, a T-shirt he
wore a sign around his neck
stating "I am Herb Elliot." Upon
his arrival at the square he was
to make a speech announcing his
retirement while standing on
the statue of Edward VII. He
began his speech, faltered, and
then fell at the base of the
statue. The cause of death is
not officially known, the the
coroner's inquest is not concluded.

At last—the perennial eampus parking problem is licked.
More than 7,50ft cars are parked daily on the stu&ent and
faculty lots—'and there's room to spare.
"This  year  traffie is moving
smoothly and students are following parking regulations carefully," said Traffic Officer Cece
Paul today.
The location of the three student parking lots and the routes
to them have been publicized
and drivers have been following these routes to their best
advantage, he said.
Less than 2 % of the cars have
been   removed  for   parking   illegally.
EASY ACCESS
"Our job is to allow drivers
easy access to the parking lots
and safe parking on the lots,
Paul added.        ; -.
Complaints and suggestions
will be received fairly at the
Traffic Office, he said.
Any group that plans bus
trips should notify the Traffic
Office in advance to arrange
convenient parking for buses.
Most students contacted had
no complaints regarding parking on the campus and Dave
Martin, Ed. Ill said he even
enjoyed the brief walk before
8:30  lectures.

Summer Magazine and Swan Song
Bfflg'g'SQcggqooipecfflPOTwqigffgooooogooc
At last, three summer magazines have reached me — one
a little late (is October still
summer?)—and fat with matter. They arrived in the order
Prism, Tamarack Review, and
Canadian Literature, which is
quite interesting, in, view of
the fact that one might classify
their contents in that, or the
reverse order. Not I mean, in
the light of quality—a doubtful quantity or term that perhaps should mot be applied to
anything that calls itself literature, least of all to contemporary literature—but in the light
of content. Prism all prose
and poetry, Tamarack Review
prose both creative and horta
tory, Canadian Literature critical and what? Reviewy?
Prism — The editors of
Prism gave us a hint, in their
issue 1:3 that they had at last
mastered, as well as two very
busy men possibly can, the art
of magazine editing. Issue 1:4
confirms that hint, stamps their
confidence and ability with the
nihil obstat and imprimatur
that should belong to a little
mag., and which is an integrated verve and flair, a disciplined dash and vigor, something like gallantry.
This is iall evident, not only
in their material, but also in
the way in which the material
moves through the physical
pages of the magazine. Immediately, the reader, if he has
any,sense of perhaps what is
rhythm, will sense this and be
quickened. It was a good thing
for the earlier issues of the
(magazine, but in light of the
above, a deprivation for readers of the later numbers, that
Kreisel's Travelling Nude,
lamongst others, was printed
when it was. But I think that
is not the fault of the editors.
A new magazine must find that
unsolicited submitted material
is a hopeless hodgepodge of
everything whatever. The policy of the magazine has not
jelled, has not even been in
any way established—no mat-

ter what editors may say about
spontaneity, or "impact, verve,
and guts," and no matter what
they may do in any way of
selection — and; only the evidence of the printed matter
will persuade an author to submit to a particular magazine.
Actually, of course, this evidence does, for an author, constitute editorial policy, and it
is policy and must be policy,
unless editors who make declarations of freedom from pol
icy intend to print everything
or nothing that is submitted. In
either case there would be no
magazine.
But to Prism 1:4 in particular. I must, or be accused of
indecisioni, make judgments.
And I judge—who would deny
my right and give it arbitrarily
to any other? We are all know-
nothings in the act of knowing
nothing—that Elizabeth Campbell's Five Sonnets are the
focal point of the issue. After
all, there they are, physically
set in the centre of the book.
But more. This is an issue, I
think, intensely personal, and
concerned with memory, and
if the issue ad its contents even
to the editorial tend to the
reminiscent, how much more
alive to this is Miss Campbell,
how much is she to the point
that she makes, how much
more has her realization of
purpose crystallized! This is
true, too, of Elizabeth Luck-
hurst's sketches, but not quite
as true, if truth will admit of
degree.
Memory, too, is the moving
force of Clif Bennett's The
Undergoing of the Evening-
Lands, but a memory not explicit but implicit in his matter. If this is now, so I understand him, it is because it compares with what he leaves unstated that was them. And Jim
Salt's Dreamers. And, and,
and, etc.
But perhaps all literature
that is not didactic, and perhaps even some of that, is
somehow reminiscent. I know
it would be hard to make a
ease against this. The writer
must write out of his experience, etc., etc., and his experiences make up the sum total of
his reminiscences. But do they?
I wish that a psychologist
might answer me this. Do they?
SWAN SONG
So far I wrote, and then I
suddenly began to wonder.
What the devil use is the
Critic's page, anyway? Is it of
any use to anybody but the
few people who, mostly from
motives of personal interest,
occasionally submit the odd
article? Does it exist only for
the sakes of inspiring the sort
of insipid conversation that
serves as wit amongst the
thicker brained devotees of one
or two tables in the cafeteria?
Is there even such a thing as
"criticism" that can be prac
tised in the columns of this or
any other newspaper? Whatever the answer may be, I just
don't care. I'm fed up to the
back teeth with putting myslf
out for people who, as they
grow older, become not more
but less wise. I had hoped that
in the course of last year somebody would come to me and express some interest in doing
something other than destructive to the page. Somebody new
might have offered some fresh
direction. But nobody came.
Next week Dave Bromige will
resume his place in these lists.
I hope that people like Bill
Littler will continue to write
for him. I hope he'll let them.
An Anomaly
Of Our Age
Unless you are a reader of
the old Harper's, Atlantic, or
American Mercury magazines,
or a browser into obscure
books in libraries, there is not
much chance that you would
have come across one Albert
Jay Nook, and in many ways
it is a pity for he is a perfect
example of ananomaly of our
modern age.
Reading Mr. Nock is a most
unusual experience, for his
background, his whole frame
of reference, his very outlook
are so completely different
from what we are accustomed
to in this age.
This disparity in Mr. Nock is
continually brought home to
me whenever I try to explain
his theories to any of my very
tolerant friends (a redundancy
to be sure). Throughout my explanations I can notice the
looks on their faces going from
bewilderment through gentle
bemusement to scoffing dismay
to utter disbelief.
Such will probably be the
case with the gentle reader
coming across Mr. Nock's'views
on modern artistic "achievements". However, since it has
become an unquestioned ariom
that there is much good in
modern creative endeavor, so
that one is perhaps inclined to
accept it without much reflective thought, it is perhaps
worthwhile to look into Mr.
Nock who is one of the very
few respected critics who holds
a completely different view.
To have some idea of how
much his views are not widely
held, just imagine anyone of
the UBC English department
even the gentlemen of the old
school such as Drs. Daniels or
Morrison, let alone those of the
later school of Dr. Birney or
Mr. Woodcock (it would be
ludicrous in the extreme to
even consider the new school
of Drs. Hall, Zibler, Gose, or
Broyn, ever saying what Mr,
Nock has to say about what is

Editor: MIKE
generally held to be the greatest period of artistic endeavor
of this century.
"In the field of creative art,
if one can call it that . . .
whether prose or verse, they
(the artists) presented a remarkable sight. In a way I was
prepared for something of the
kind, because I had already
seen evidence, especially in
France, that the current practice of music, painting and
sculpture had become . . .
chaos of confusion, and one
would expect the current practice of literature to be in even
worse case because naturally a
larger number of ill-assorted
aspirants would be trying their
hand at it. The period presented a curious phenonemon, one
that I think may have been
unique. Writing is an occupation in which a person who
knows nothing whatever about
it can engage and often achieve
a popular success. I do not
know of any other time, however, when it has been possible
for a person who knew nothing whatever about painting
or music or sculpture to make
any kind of success . . . Yet
I had seen it done; I had seen
a great vogue of French painters, a whole school of them,
who (with one exception) did
not even know how to draw:
and I had also seen a considerable popular interest extended
towards French and German
composers who clearly lacked
even the most elementary discipline to fit them for what,
they were trying to do. I had
further nibbled with long teeth
at some specimens of "modernity" in French and German
writings, and saw in them no
sign of anything more promising than unwarranted ambition.   The  unmistakable   mark
of degeneracy which stood out
in the period's attempts at artistic production was an intense and conscious preoccupation with the subjective. As
Goethe remarked, all eras in
a state of decline and dissolution are subjective, while in
all great areas in a state of
pregression, every effort is
directed from the inward to
the outward world; it is of an
objective nature. Work done in
great progressive eras, — the
work of the Augustan and Peri-
clean periods, the work of the
Elizabethans, of Erasmus, Rabelais, Cervantes, one accepts,
these as classic because they
are objective and therefore
strong, sound, joyous, healthy.
Work done in an era of decadence is subjective, and therefore with the rarest and most
fragmentary exceptions pathological, weak, bizarre, unhealthy ... In Europe I saw
a good deal of the "modernist"
painting done in the 'twenties
by Pascin, Soutine, Picasso,
Dufy and others. In literature
I also nibbled gingerly at specimens of subjectivity furnished
by Proust, Laforgue, Dujardin
and practitioners of the "stream
of consciousness" principle.
The great mass of writing
produced in America during
the twenties bore a curiously
stereotyped character. The
dearth of imagination, of inventive power, manifested in
these productions was also remarkable. In some cases one
could hardly escape the conviction that an author had
merely changed the names of
his characters and their locale,
and then written the same
story over and over again.
"The only certainty I could
arrive at concerning the literary produce of the 'twenties
was that art goes rancid when

was doing. In no ways do these
actions intertwine or become
confusing. We know perfectly
well that Felix is not suffering
from epilepsy, but merely trying to fool the draft board.
The character of Felix is the
most interesting in the entire
story. The director has kept
his confidence man human.
There are moments of senti-
mentalism and touching humanism. One of the best examples is the scene between
Felix and the Scottish lord.
Felix has a great love for the
man and is flattered that the
Scotsman wants to have him as
his adopted son and heir. Felix
turns him down with great regret, preferring to stick to the
profession he has chosen. He
was though, as anyone would
be, tempted. This temptation
was clearly shown. The director did not allow the point to
be laboured and we soon got
back to the main thread of
the story.
The ending is the only part
•of the entire movie that the
advocator of logicalisim might
object to. Felix takes a drug
which induces a death-like
state, but which, Shakespearelike, wears off to leave the
hero rested and ready for further conquests.
I think, however, that this
is not too much of a tax on our
credulity and if it is taken in
the vein it is intended—to entertain—one cannot object to
this method of extricating the
hero from a delicate situation.
"P       V       V
On the technical side, the
movie was equally well produced. The subtitles were very
complete and while at first
they were hard to follow because of the desire to see what
was on the rest of the screen,
one soon mastered the art of
reading and watching at the
same time. I would feel sorry
for a slow reader though.
The photography was the
usual stock type with a few
notable strokes of the unusual.
The most striking occurred
when Felix was trying to copy
the lover's signature with a revolver barrel reminding him
to "make it good".
If the rest of the films shown
by Film Guild are as interesting and entertaining as the
one last Sunday, they will have
a successful and entertaining
season.

The opening concert of the
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra's thirty-first season took
place on Sunday afternoon in
the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
Whether or not it was an auspicious beginning is subject to
question.
The orchestra began with a
performance of Berlioz' Wav-
erley Overture. This is an early
work, aipparently inspired by
the composer's admiration for
Sir Walter Scott. It begins with
a slow section which provides
the celli with somte beautiful
legato passages. For the most
part the rest of the overture
is written in typical nineteenth
century romantic style, spirited
and richly orchestrated even if
not profound.
Face of Duplessis
Mr. Pierre Laporte, in his
English edition The True Face
of Duplessis, purports to give
the reader a look iat the True
face of the late premier of
Quebec. He does anything but.
Mr. Laporte is a very clever
journalist and his cleverness is
evident at the beginning of the
work. Soon, however, even the
thin veneer of cleverness wears
away and the book degenerates
into a vicious attack on Duplessis.
Mr. Laporte says in his preface, "I have been warned to
guard against a pitfall: that of
appearing to seek revenge
against Duplessis. It is a stupid
warning. It seems evident to
me that this book is not an indictment. Readers may judge
for themselves, but I must at
least affirm, that I was animated by no emotions other than
those engendered by trying to
represent this personality
through his actions and his
statements—no easy task."
Mr. Laporte, I do not believe
you!
Laporte goes to great extent,
indeed devotes entire chapters,
to praising Duplessis. Invariably at the end of each he
snipes viciously. At the end of
chapter one: "His opponents
Whispered that through some
twist of fate, he had died on
the scene of his worst treason."
At the end of chapter 2: "All
in all, I think that Duplessis
was a very bright man. But not
quite as remarkable as he imagined." And so on.
Mr. Laporte finally completely abandons: his sham and
lets his criticism show unhidden. A compliment to the readers' intelligence, or perhaps it
shows Mr. Laporte's lack of
real literary ability. In dhort
Mr. Laporte does not give us
the whole truth about Duplessis.
The book does have some
good points, which, in spite of
Conductor Hoffman's approach was straight forward
and the orchestra responded
with gusto though without
great finesse. In fact one is
tempted to say that the brasses
fired rather than played their
notes. This aside, the performance was quite enjoyable—the
celli deserving special mention.
The highlight of the concert
was a presentation of the Khat-
chaturian piano concerto by
the brilliant American pianist
Leonard Pennario. The concerto itself is a brightly colored virtuoso showpiece. Present
is a blending of the composer's
Armenian - Russian musical
backgrounds — a skillful combination of eastern melodic influences and Russian orchestration techniques. It is probably
not a great work. Many passages seem to exploit the pianist's technique at the expense
of neglecting greater musical
development. It is, however, a
work of power, intricate rhythms and mudh bravura. The
slow second movement in particular is hauntingly and lyrically beautiful.
Pennario showed ample evi-
the obvious slant, do show
through. There are some excellent running commentaries
of discussions between Duplessis and some members of the
press.
The dry sarcastic humor of
Duplessis is strikingly cap-
tared and his treatment of his
ministers is also faithfully reported. Once again, however,
any that portion which is conducive to the advancement of
Mr. Laporte's purpose is used.
Technically, the book is
about what one would expect
a $1.50 edition to be like. Proof
reading could certainly have
been tighter. At times the
printing of the reverse side
page shows through and makes
for difficult reading.
Mr. Laporte concludes that
all of Duplessis' ministers were
afraid of him. I wonder why
Mr. Laporte didn't bring his
book out when the premier was
alive?—Roger McAfee,
dence of his famed technique.
He seems an ideal interpreter
for this type of concerto, combining his rhythmic sensitivity
with a broad, dynamic approach. His playing of the
final movement was dazzling.
The orchestra, except for some
noticeably weak attacks (in the
violin section especially) provided asatisfactory background.
The low point of the programme, unfortunately, was
the orchestra's performance of
Beethoven's magnificent Seventh Symphony. This symphony has been called by Wagner
and others the "apotheosis of
the dance". If such is true, one
is tempted to conclude that Mr.
Hoffman and the orchestra
were out of step. Certainly Mr.
Hoffman was using some steps,
for his conducting style approaches modern ballet. In any
case, I wonder Why he let this
performiance get beyond rehearsal. The number of mistakes alone in the first movement was embarrassing, the
worst offenders probably being
the horns. If they weren't outstanding they were certainly
standing out. Perhaps the general sloppiness of the playing
might have been accounted for
had the tempo been overly fast,
but on the contrary, Mr. Hoffman's first movement was deliberate and far from brisk.
The playing of the second
movement was much better.
The conductor seems to enjoy
lingering over broad melodies
and other than being a bit
slow, such was not out of place
in this movement. The final
two movements were swiftly
paced and not so badly played
as the first. This did not sufficiently compensate, however,
for what was an essentially unrefined and at times unevenly
paced performance.
The Chicago's American
critic, Roger Dettner, said this
summer of Mr. Hoffman:
He stands in the very front
rank of American conductors, second to none who
comes to mind—he makes
music with absolute command.
It is to be hoped that such
a talented conductor will give
us   reason,   during   subsequent
concerts, to believe these words.

Fire Prevention Week starts
Monday at UBC.
University Fire Chief Gerard
Foran said Thursday that an
awareness of fire hazards is the
prerequisite to fire prevention.
He  said   extreme   caution
should be exercised in all laboratories;   flammable   liquids  are
extremely hazardous.
BED SMOKING OUT
For the students in the residences, smoking in bed should
be outlawed. This problem is so
serious, that in the United
States, starting a fire in this
manner, is now a criminal offence, he said.
ALL YEAR PROCESS
Fire prevention is a constant
process, not something which is
turned on once a year, the fire
chief said. For example, he
pointed out that since last January, over $8,000 has been expended to equip buildings and j
residences on the campus  with
good fire extinguishers.
The equipment on the campus
is invaluable, and some of it irreplaceable,"  said Chief Foron.
"It is .our joint responsibility
to see that it isn't destroyed by
our stupidity,"   he  emphasized.

The Birds have switched to
the short - punt formation, a
change that will be both a help
and a hinderance. Coach Gnup
says that the players like the
new formation and this fact
may install some much needed
confidence. On the other hand,
the team hasn't had time time
to learn their plays properly.
This formation has produced
many other problems as well as
the play situation. One of these
has been solved by the announcement that Bill Cherpeta
will start at quaterback.
"We might be better than
last week, and if we are we'll
win," said Gnup.
The Birds biggest problem is
their lack of a sustained offense. They have the material
and the plays but they don't
seem to be able to put the two
together. Gnup hopes the new
formation will overcome this
difficulty.
Jim Olafson and Jim Beck
are both injured and are doubtful starters. This is a real blow
to the team as the two are big
guns.
Coach Gnup is optimistic
about the team's chances. He
stuck a fresh cigar in his mouth

them a hell of a game."

The group of four filed out
through the main entrance of
the library, onto the Piazza, and
lit their pipes.
"Six - four for Pittsburgh,"
said one. "Hmmm. I guess I win
the pool."
The wisest pursued his lips.
"Poverty and principle preclude
me from paying."
"Ah," said the tallest, "your
alliteration conceals your cheapness, and your statement
smacks of snobbery. Conventional 'I-ignore-basball-because-I
am-so-smart'!"
"Exactly. When I was a child
and all that. Answer me this:
why the autumnal frenzy about
baseball among those who usually ignore the game?"
"I have a theory," said the
winner of the pool. "The Ancient Druids used to place a
victim upon a flat rock, give
him a club as a token of defense,
and wing stones at him. When
he succumbed, they would run
around a circle of rocks (this
was at Stonehenge) and crying
"Bahz fahz!", (meaning 'all hail
the sun god whom we have endeavoured to appease in hopes
of a mild winter'). This custom
remained submerged in the
British subconscious, and war
brought over to America by the
Pilgrim Fathers. They reverted
to "Druid form by stoning turkeys and sinners around Thanksgiving, using a stretch-position

ley's."
"First   of   all',,   said   wisest,
"Stonehenge was not utilized by_
Druids. Secondly, Turley uses a
full windup. Thirdly, my theory
is better. It is rather Marxian."
He gazed thoughtfully at a
passing coed, and puffed on his-
pipe. "The Series find such
favour (because Washington is
trying to eradicate beard-growing among American youth.
Beards are the first step along
the subversive trend to Beatism.;
Thus, have the President throw
out baseballs. Everyone follow- •
ed him to the golf course: everyone will likewise flock to baseball. All will watch the Series,
and be subliminaly conditioned
to shave. Ergo, by inducing people to watch baseball on T.V.,
Washington will preserve bourgeois values from the menace
of socialism. Beards will become
subversive and un-American."
"Then why do women watch
baseball?" asked the fourth
member, a small boy whose pipe
had gone out.
"Lust, pure lust," said the
pedant, and the others nodded
their agreement.
Students!
For an evening or after game
treat, try our whipped hot

We note with interest that
one of our number fashioned
a home-made 'Faculty' parking privilege sticker and presumed to impose his lowly
student-type vehicle into the
precincts of the sanctum sanctorum.
Further t6  our parking  of
fender, it will be interesting to
see just what the Faculty
Council finally find him guilty
of.
The two most likely charges
have serious drawbacks, to
wit:
(a) 'bucking the B & G
bureaucracy' far from being
popularly regarded  as  an  of
fence is actually pursued as a
pure sport among both the student body and the society of
their mentors:
(b) and of course, 'impersonating a teacher' could turn out
to be a rather embarrassing
tWo-edged sword in the hands
of some of our more polished
debaters. s      " "
