Liberal  Drivel
Shakespeare summed up perfectly the recent bleatings
of the campus Liberal Club. "Full of sound and fury signifying
nothing." Absolutely nothing.
Liberals, "infuriated" over the recent NFCUS-sponsored
•'political" speech of Attorney-General Robert Bonner passed
a motion condemning the local branch of the national student
Mr. Bonner's speech was one of an excellent series of
talks on Canada the campus NFCUS committee is sponsoring
this year. There was nothing political about hs speech. He
merely outlined some of the problems facing the nation generally and B.C. specifically in our rapidly expanding economy.
It was more of a statistical review than anything else.
However, the campus Liberals, not unnatural, don't like
Mr. Bonner and so they condemned his speech and his sponsors.
"This motion will start the ball rolling," commented Liberal
Club President Darrell Anderson. "From now on the Liberal
Club will continue to press for the collapse of NFCUS." It's
so long since the Liberal Club, or for that matter anyone of
the campus political clubs, have done anything constructive
that the Liberals evidently thought they might as well do
something destructive.
The attitude of the Liberal Club is akin to that of a spoiled
brat who flies into a tantrum when his mother won't buy him
an all-day stacker. Instead of trying to destroy NFCUS why
don't the Liberals help try and improve it and make it a
worthwhile organization.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
With reference to your article pertaining to the campus
Liberal's stand on NFCUS, we
wish to make clear the point
of view that the executive took

We are not going on a crusade against NFCUS, nor at the

organization. These" and the
other ominous statements that
The Ubyssey quoted us on are
deliberately twisted in order
to make news.
Although we will not stoop
to the old cry of the harried
politician of "misquote", we
do claim that what The Ubyssey printed was, in the main,
individual, persdnal opinions
of tho executive, and not the

I what's needed is someone like Attlee to keep us in order."
For 20 years Mr. Attlee kept them in order. How he did
lit is a psychological - political question likely to intrigue future
Labor historians. For Mr. Attlee does not conform to the con-
[ventional picture of a successful politician.
It was MacDonald's decision to form a National Govern-
Itnent in 1931—which other Laborites called a "sell-out"—that
I paved the way for Attlee's rise to leadership. As a result of
iMacDonald's action, Labor went into the election of 1935 di-
Ivided and with little power. It came out with still less. Attlee

Ito survive the election. Moreover Attlee—shy, selfless, hard-
|working, quietly effective—provided a sharp contrast to the
>rilliant MacDonald. Attlee was elected party leader in 1935.
The rest ha.s been front-page history—formation of the wartime National Government with Churchill as Prime Minister
»nd Attlee as deputy P.M.; Labor's sweeping election victory in
L945 ("This is incredible," said Attlee as the returns poured in);
lis accession to the Prime Ministershp; his sponsorship of the
far-reaching socialist revolution (as bloodless, said London's
/its, as Mr. Att'.'e); hi.s decision to free India, Burma and
>ylon; finally, in 1!>51, Labor's election defeat and Attlee's
return to the rule of Leader c\' Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition.
Life magazine, in its big year-end issue, gave to Christianity that panoramic grandeur which it gives to every golden
subject it really likes: American food, American capitalism,
American musical comedies, America in general. Now it was
American Christianity, with a little side glimpse at Christianity in colorful India and troubled Europe toward the end.
The pages were spread with<^- "
the   Onward   March   of  Faith
. . . the Unprecendented Wave
of Religious Observance . . .
the Biggest U.S. Archdiocese
. . . with splendid reproductions of religious art, and
hymns, prayers, and creed in
massive colored Gothic script.
We looked for a word to describe that grand, sweeping, inclusive, colorful quality Life
gives to everything it touches,
and we remembered one of
a Hollywood producer is said
to use. He says, somewhat to
the mystification of his colleagues, that every one of his
movies must have it: "Scope."
Well, Life's 35 cent, 168-page,
double-barreled issue showed
that Christianity—like America and Time, Inc.—has scope.
It took courage and planning
to treat this subject, for it
meant picking and choosing,
delving into matters on which
every reader has his feeling
and prejudice, balancing Catholic and Protestant, Billy Graham and Harvard, and setting
aside a couple of pages in
which to confine the world,
the flesh, the devil, and the
To put out such an issue was
to risk heartfelt criticism from
every sect and every side, a
thing editors are not often
willing to do. The risk was all
the greater because Life no
longer contented itself with
the position of a detached onlooker, as it had in earlier
articles on Hinduism, Buddhism, and such: This time,
along with the words and pictures about the march and the
challenges, the rugged basis
of American Protestantism and
America's moral consensus, the
testimony of a devout President and the Apostles' Creed,
could be heard the unmistakable sound of drums. Even
some of the advertisers were
moved to join the pilgrim
throng; two gigantic pages of
Peace of Mind from State
Farm Mutual Insurance, some
Wise Men from Hilton Hotels.
Things to Remember from Olin
Mathieson Chemical Corporation.
We don't necessarily object
to drums, but we wonder about
the implied argument from
Scope. Isn't it like that older
pitch for Christianity, which
argued from Us history (the
nineteen   hundred   years;   it's
prepared statement which waa
'given the paper, and which
the editor did not see fit to
print. If The Ubyssey wishes to
quote individual opinions, well
and good, but we must most
vigorously protest this rather
underhanded trick of giving
oficial endorsement to personal opinions.
Briefly then, our stand was
that the students of this university do not pay NFCUS
$3000 per year to sponsor political speakers, when the political clubs bring the students
this service for nothing. If
they consider this to be their
real function, then by logical
implication they have in fact,
no  real  function  whatsoever.
It is the responsibility and
indeed the duty of the political
clubs to sponsor political
speakers. This responsibility is
far removed from the concern
of NFCUS, if they cannot find
anything more profitable to do,
they have outlined their usefulness.

quote, in this unlikely context,
from Mrs. Browning, "Love to

And, anyway, is that the basis
of a man's faith, that this is
something big and booming?
Nothing about truth or sin, or
inner satisfaction of the soul?
In an article in Fortune,
Editor Henry Luce set forth
more explicitly his hopes for
America and Christianity.
(Again, it's a little hard to distinguish.) By 1980, in his soaring vision, with our technical
development we may become
"Collaborators with God in
charge of evolution," we may
"Christianize Atlas" and have
a "spiritually oriented" evolution, whatever that is; we will
have overcome the habit of
poverty, perfected the High
Organization of what Science
can do to Nature, and be ready
for a "greater Renaissance"
that will not be pagan." That
vision has Scope all right. It
is Life-like, and it goes well
in the burgeoning, wealthy
Fortune-extolled America from
which it comes. But how does
it differ from any other enthusiastic boom—except maybe
that in this full employment
boom of ours, God too Is given
a job as a collaborator? As
we read Mr. Luce's glowing
words and those endless evangelical pages of Life on America and Christianity, we begin
to yearn for something Christian, and something American,
that is missing. The Christian
note that's not really there is
contrition; some sense of a distance between our national
ethos, our "evolution," out
"collaborating with God," and
an ever-questioning faith. The
American note that's missing
is a bit of frontier skepticism
and humor. After pages and

Fails To  Impress
Afro-Cuban Jazz came to
UBC Wednesday in the form
of Paul Suter's Sextet. As
Afro-Cuban jazz, it was a distinct failure; but taken as a
North American jazz quartet
plus two South American
drummers, its successes were
The group was attempting,
as beret clad leader Suter intimated, to fuse elements of
South American rhythm and
North American improvised
jazz into something meaningful and fairly new.
The attempt failed. Latin
America was suitably represented by bongos and conga
drum; American jazz was represented by four Vancouver-
ites who played—and looked
—very much like American
jazz musicians. But North and
South never really got together musically, and the result
sounded something like a bilious Dave Brubeck Quartet
wearing huaraches.
This is not to say that individually, the musicians did
not play well. They did; and
sometimes they played very
well indeed.
But something vital was
missing; the good neighbor
policy went down in musical
The South American contingent (Rodriguo and Rene
Del Diego on bongos and conga drum respectively) were
driving and precise; but
through no fault of their own,
they contributed little, The
Sextet was actually a thoroughly North American jazz
quartet, with two latin drums
added; and the whole was definitely no more than the sum
of its parts.

Pianist-leader Suter and
tenorman Wally Snider are
both capable, and sometimes
inspired musicians. But at
times, their performance
sounded like a skillful imitation of Dave Brubeck and
Paul Desmond in one of their
more intimate moments.
Snider's throaty tone and
facile technique highlighted
some of the selections, but
shattered the dreamy mood
that should have been sustained in some of the others.
Suter, unfortunately, played a
bit too softly; the man is
worth hearing, and should
make himself heard.
Bassist Paul Rhuland was
probably the top individual
player. His solos were consistently exciting, and technically amazing; and his rhythmic
chores were solidly executed.
Drummer Al "Boomer" Cle-
land, as usual, played well,
but a bit too loudly. As always, he swung.
By far the best number was
something called "Clear Out
of This World", which, despite its Mardi Gras connotations, is a dreamy, ethereal
ballad. Rhuland's bowed bass
and Suter's piano combined
to create a lovely, spun-glass
mood, which was unfortun«
ately shattered by the tenor
saxophone, which really did
not fit in on that particular
Unsolicited advice to leader
Suter: stick to piano and leave
the MCing to Alec Templeton.
Suter's MCing eforts, to put
it charitably, were painful to
witness. They marred a performance that was, despite
some considerable discrepancies, thoroughly creditable.

more than eight points and at

Dave Demaresq, first string
guard of the Braves will be lost
to the team next week when he
laves for Gonzaga College in
Washington. However, UBC veteran Dave Horton was just added to the roster and is expected
to fill the vacant spot nicely.
UBC Braves boast league's
high scorer in the person of
Lance Stephens. Lance has an
average of 17 points in eight
leaue ames, and should fit in
very well in Bird coach Jack
Pomfret's plans for next year.
The Braves have almost cinched a playoff spot but coach Peter
Mullins said that experience will
tell the story in the finals.
The top three teams will playoff with the first place team
getting the bye. The winner will
meet Alberni Junior Men for
the B.C. final.
