Council Plans
To Remove

The Students' Council at Carlton Universily is making plans

Dickerson and Bruce Fraser for
the affirmative, Ed Hepner and
Vein Stobie for the negative,
with Ralph Brown as chairman.
The debate lasted from 1:30 to
In the opinion of the speaker for the affirmative, the U.S.
would lose prestige if they do
not support Nationalist China
in their defence of Mastu and
Quemoy. This in turn would
therefore be damaging to the
prestige of the rest of the free
world   including   Canada.
Another point raised by the
affirmative was that our economic ties with the U.S. might
be endangered if we refuse our
support. "We need the Yanks
a lot more than they need us,"
said Bod Dickerson, "and a
break with them would be dis-
The negative countered with
the ergument that the islands
in question geographically belong to Red China and that
it was Canada's duty to urge
the U.S. to give the islands to
their rightful owners.
They went on to say that the ;
policy of the U.S. is tied to the
whim of Chiang Kai Chek and
that the U.S. had no business
meddling in whal was really
a civil  war.
One point that both sides had
in common was that Canada
should suggest to the U.S. some j
method or policy they could
use that would enable them to
get out of their agreements
with the nationalists 'gracefully.'
The affirmative suggested a
policy that could be used, and
this was that the U.S. should
demand from Red China that
they: 1. Cease fire. 2. That the
island be neutralized. 3. The
Formosans be given the oppor-
tunitl to decide their own fate
by a supervised vote, and 4.
Make Red China's admission to
the U.N. contingent upon their
acceptance  of this  policy.
After both sides had spoken,
the chairman asked the assembly
to voice their opinions. Then the
real bailie started. It lasted for
45 min. and dealt with such
basic questions as: which is
best: Communism or democracy?
Chairman Ralph Brown could
see that the argument could go
on for some considerable time,
so he called a halt and gave the
debators a chance to make their
rebutal. Then came the vote.

This Is It
There will be a General Meeting of the Alma Mater
Society next Thursday.
This is very probably the last session that there will be
General Meetings at UBC.
That's fine with us.
At least, that's fine with us as long as the student body
wants it that way.
But the students haven't yet had an opportunity to
express their general will as to whether the meeting should
be done away with.
And unless they give the matter their attention pretty
Quickly, they'll find themselves without the meeting and
not quite knowing what's happened.
If the meetings this year are as poorly attended and as
poorly organized as those of the last two years hax'e been,
it will be only a mattex' of time until a representative government system of student government takes their place.
The only way that the General Meeting can save itself
from extinction is foT it to prove this year that it is an efficient and a desirable form of student government.
The meeting next Thursday is going to be a do-or-die
affair. It its agenda isn't provocative enough to draw a full
Armoury, someone will almost certainly challenge the quorum and bring the meeting to a premature close, in order
that discussion is prevented on some matter that he personally does not want discussed. This has been a favorite tactic
in recent General Meetings.
It would be ineffective if the Armoury were full.
The Armoury, however, won't be full, of course, unless
the meeting's agenda contains some item of business which
will interest the majority of students.
And so far, Students' Council has been unable to come
up with anything more provocative to discuss at the Meeting
than the auditor's report.
. So unless the students who want to keep the General
Meeting come forward with their own resolutions, they
will be obliged to accept a representative government

Ubyssey Dull
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir-
It has seemed to me that Tho
Ubyssey, in the issues to date
this year, has not readied the
standard of interest of previous
years, and I think that this is
due, to some extent at least, to
the lack of any material of current interest and of a controversial nature.
The topic of education, while
of intense interest to the students of the university, having
been thoroughly examined last
year in your newspaper, as in
all others, seemed temporarily
exhausted, because at least to
some degree thought out by a
large proportion of the population.
However, the Vancouver Sun
has convinced me that this is
not so, that it is very likely
that people outside the univer
sity, and thus the freshman
year, arc still to a large extent
ignorant of the real problems
oi' education. You may, in the
circumstances, find the article
worth printing.
Yours  sincerely,
P. COLE?. I AN,'

I was just wondering whether someone ought to answer
Mr. W. Thomson's article in
The Ubyssey, Sept. 30, under
"World Brotherhood Hindered
By Religion".
But, had it not heen for another "Courageous" Ubyssey
reader insisting on having such
(topics) in our paper, I would
not have been encouraged to
answer that article.
I took Mr. Thomson's article
good heartedly, as he asked,
and hope that my reply will be
faced with the same "fraternal"
attitude by every reader so that
we can live peacefully in a
world of mutual understanding.
Firstly, I would like to point
out that the philosophy of our
religions is rather complicated
and cannot be understood by a
few articles here and there.
And I am sure that Mr. Thomson did not dig deep in our religion to give a "clear-cut" opinion about it.
Islam is not similar to Christianity in all its teachings, but
the Moslems believe that Islam
is complementary to Judaism
and Christianity which had
gone "astray" through the nu-
she is in fact stunned.
Her criticism of the Frosh
Initiation   is  her  own   opinion
and not that of the parties concerned. The majority of the
Frosh that I interviewed were
in hearty approval of this form
oi' initiation.
The fact is lhat most Frosh-
ettes took the particular trouble
to make sure that they were
seen and chosen by the "vulgar boors".
If one enquires into the —
"esprit de corp" — of the various faculties, one will find that
those of the Aggies, Engineers,
and Forestry is the best on
campus. The shameful apathy
of the Arts Faculty is glowingly evident.
In reply to her statement on
"bag appeal," I will say that
we chose only those froshettes
whose spuds were stacked not
the ones whose old maid attitude make them screaming har-
ridens for 'proper' girls and
I will end with the statement
that healthy, red-blooded Aggies with a broad outlook on
life will alivays be criticized
by the maladjusted narrow-
minded bigots who live in their
ivory towers.

We believe that Prophet Mohammed was sent to complete
the Message which Jesus Christ
had not the time to fulfil.
Our religion is mainly a social constitution which, if it
were followed precisely, would
save the world from lots of
troubles (emphasized by many
European philosophers who had
studied Islam "deeply").
Islam does not urge on fighting "Believers" (those who believe in God, His Books, and
His Messengers). It insists on
justice, equality, fraternity and
A common, but false concept
is that Islam had spread by
force and had its main objective converting other peoples
to Islam.
It had never forced the Believers to become Moslems —
the best example is that they
did not try to convert the people of Spain to be Moslems because they were mostly Christians and Jews (Beiievers), but
it had forced the Persians to
Islam because they were heathens.

Frosh Wronged
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
"There's a goldmine in the
sky" — a lovely quote, needless to say, but hardly a space
filler   when   other   items   are
more newsworthy.
Your Oct. 9th edition subtitled this startling quote while
close to 2,000 first year students wondered in vain about
some frosh election speeches
that were to be held — heaven
only knows where. Actual
fact —■ 80 frosh did find out
and attended the gathering in
Physics 200). Chalk one up
for The Ubyssey.
The next clay's paper ran a
page 6 article naming the candidates contesting the frosh
council positions. But it failed
to mention that voting was to
take place that day — naming
the polling stations voting time
and procedure by which elections were to take place.
A grand total of 700 voters
turned out to the polls — figure the percentage out for
yourself. Not too dynamic a
showing for a group of students that have been solidly degraded in your publication
since the word go.
Comes this morning's edition — eager frosh rush to pick
up their copy of the paper.
What!    no election results?
Nothing about the election?
I scanned the paper and
found the word frosh mentioned only on the sports page.
We think we's been done
wrong by! If it's frosh news
you want, the frosh council can
certainly provide you with a
weekly bulletin. But don't sit
there, smugly pounding your
tyyewriter, with such gems as
"apathetic" emerging, without
some justification!
Sincerely yours,
F. C, Arts 1,
more commonly
known as FROSH,
almighty, will support you.
We cannot say that all our
leaders were fighting for righteous objectives, because they
left the religious notion aside
and started working for personal gains.
The Crusade Wars were not
to save the Christians in the
Middle East from the Moslem's
aggressions, but it took from
Christianity a support and a
"shield" for its main objective
which was to keep the Arabs
from the Western part of the
Mediterranean Sea and the
World Trade Route with the
All the Christians in the
Middle East admitted that ihey
were living under the Islamic
Rule much better than they
were during the Crusader's
The present Arab-Israeli War
is, also, not a religious war.
The Israelis are fighting the
Arabs who are Moslems and
Secondly, because the religious Jews do not approve this
fatal war. (Reference: "Who
Knows Better Must Say So,"
Elmer Berger, executive director of the American Council
for Judaism: 1955 — copy in
UBC Library).
Israel was founded for political
aims through Zionism, which
took from Judaism a "shield"
to protect its massive oppressions against the Arab Palestinians. They consider Palestine as the first step toward
fulfilling their Utopia. Communism and Zionism have one
common goal, world domination by all means. Whether
this would be for the general
good of humanity, is something
So, it is the aim of the Believers to unite against the aggressor, whatever he might be,
and surely he will be infidel
because he does not care for the
souls of other human beings
who want to live in peace.
The major aim of Islam is to
let every one follow his own
Divine Religion, which all insist on world brotherhood and
peaceful co-existence.
Religious scientists would not
then invent devatating weapons
to annihilate their brethren.
No dictator would force a
scientist to invent a poison to
kill his son.
Finally, let us all understand the teachings of our religions and keep away the frivolous things which are the "peel"
of the "good fruit" we have.
Religion is the cement of
life and we should not be scaled of this word because il
means the sets of habits and
traditions which were accepted
by our forefathers and which
we are supposed lo follow and
respect. Friday, October 17, 1958

"We have neither the time nor
the money to enjoy being students", said Takeda. The general feeling among Japanese
students is that student life is
not to enjoy but to conribute
to the number of valuable
Japanese university graduates.
Women students are considered to be of little value. Very
few women are admitted to universities, and "when they graduate, they have no jobs," Professor Tsuru said. Only 1% of
the female applicants are admitted to the University of Tokyo, he said.
Women 'not essential'
Girl secretaries are "not an
essential part of our business
world, as they are in Canada",
Professor Tsuru pointed out,
And there are very few in Japan. Girls find employment
mostly in department stores and
factories, he said.
In the home, women have an
equally low place in the hierarchy which is an intregral
part of Japanese life. Mother
places fourth in the scale of
importance in her home. Ahead
of her are grand-father, father,
and son.
There has been a gradual
change in this situation since
the war, Professor Tsuru pointed out. Now fewer brides are
living with their inlaws, and
some young couples are even
starting out with homes of their
The cult of "westernization"
has spread widely throughout
Japan since the American occupation after World War II, said
Dr. Tsuru.
Through mass media now even the reroostes farm area can
Uave "advanced U.S. culture
such at TV, Jazz, Rock-a-billy."
A widespread feeling that democracy i.s essential may also
be attributed to the occupation,
he said. Even the smallest i
groups reach decisions through
democratic methods which were i
not used before the war. Free
expression of opinion is now
respected. |
The University  of Tokyo has
carried this idea to the extreme. I
There the students have a  veto
power over the election of the
president  of  the   university.
Science in Japan has become
internationalized,    in   the   opinion   of   Dr.   Sueoka.   Even   the'
terminology is no longer "essentially Japanese". !
Since    Japan's    contact    with
western   nations   is   increasing,
this   assimilation   will   certainly!
continue,   the   panel   concluded.
This was the first on  a  monthly series  of panel discussions

versity  Service.

Today's column is written as a result of the UBC Thunderbirds' recent win against College of Puget Sound Loggers. It
seems as if this win has once again revived some interest in football on the campus.
The point in question is: Were the UBC Thunderbirds justified in withdrawing from the Evergreen Conference, and what
were the circumstances surrounding their withdrawal?
The last game won by the UBC Thunderbirds in the Evergreen
Conference was the Homecoming game two years ago.
The Thunderbirds' win, over the CPS Loggers last Saturday
was indeed gratifying to the few long-suffering fans and even more
so for Coach Frank Gnup and his hard-working boys.
Once more, the limelight shines on football as a leading spectator sport and once more football poses a valid question: "Should
the Thunderbirds have seceded from the tough Evergreen Conference — and why did they withdraw?"
In. the ten years that the 'Birds have been in the Conference
— they have won very few ball games. With the professional
Lions overly publicized, attendance at the Birds' games has greatly
All the colleges in the Evergreen with the exception of UBC
classify football as a major sport and, as a result, provide athletic
scholarships for football players.
In view of these obstacles, the Men's Athletic Committee,
helped by an Alumni Committee and a surge of nationalistic spirit
decided it was high time to form and join an all-Canadian League.
This league, which would include the Universities of Alberta,
Saskatchewan, British Columbia and later Manitoba, would be the
western Canadian equivalent of the Eastern Intercollegiate League.
In future years, the MAC envisions a schedule of six games in
the Western Union, followed by an East-West play-off for the
Churchill Cup between the winners of the respective leagues.
Such a meeting, states the MAC, will instill so much competitive spirit in the hearts of the apathetic students that they will
flock to the Stadium in thousands to cheer their heroes on.
The financing of teams in this new league would be prohibitive to say the least, Manitoba has already said that, with an
annual athletic budget of only $11,000 they could not join the
league immediately.
And what of the Thunderbirds, who cannot yet afford to buy
socks, jocks, T-shirts and boots for the team? Can they afford to
charter a North Star to take them on week-end jaunts to Edmonton
and points East?
The MAC insists ihey can.
The Thunderbirds, though a losing team in the Evergreen
Conference were always respected by rival coaches and teams.
The competition in the league has always been tough and the Birds
have managed to come up with some exciting displays and competitive team spirit was never lacking.
I This year, Coach Gnup has come up  with a  fighting, well-
! molded unit and indications are that things will be even better
in years to come. If the 'Birds cannot win any more games this
year, their exhibitions certainly will never be dull.
In the new Western League, tho 'Birds will be far ahead of
lhc other teams in organization, and indications are that they will
also be a consistent winner. The brand of football, however, will
definitely be interior to Evergreen Conference ball.
It is 1he general concensus of opinion of the players themselves that they favour American football. The products of the
Vancouver High School system are also schooled in four downs
and unlimited downfield blocking. The change to Canadian Football would be welcomed only by tho professional B.C. Lions.
Claims ihe MAC — A winning team in the new Western
League combined with the terrific competitive spirit instilled in
both players and fans, and the glamor of national competition
should make the five-year trial a success. This would fully justify
UBC's withdrawal from the Evergreen Conference.
Says irrepressible, cigar-chewing Coach Gnup: "I can't see
where it will clo us a hell of a lot of good. There could be a bullfight here and the students wouldu't come out to see it.."

when interviewed by a Ubyssey
staff  reporter,   Thursday,
An Education student caught
in the cafe said. "An interesting experiment. Soon all professors can be shifted from
marking exams to oiling machines."
Richard Paterson, Arts 2, said,
"It's haywire. 1 don't like

objective exams should be
marked by a machine",
