Anthropologist
Visits Campus
By UBYSSEY STAFF REPORTER
A small, quiet, unassuming, great lady is on campus this
week.
Dr. Margaret Read, C.B.E., of London, England, is facing a
crowded program of lectures, seminars, social gatherings and
interviews at UBC.
Dr. Read is probably the leading authority on African anthropology today.
She is also a specialist on
adult education and community development in new countries.
ADVISOR
She is a frequent advisor to
the British Colonial office in
these fields and almost a permanent member of United Kingdom delegations to UNESCO.
From 1940-1955 Dr. Read was
the head of the Department of
Education in Tropical Areas at
London University.
Wednesday,  Dean  Neville  V.
Dean Scarfe recalls Dr. Read
as a "very charming, very dynamic, very versatile lady."
At 69, she is a small, pleasant
grey-haired lady with a soft
voice and retiring ways.
Students will have a chance
to hear her Wednesday when
she speaks in Buchanan 106 at
noon on "General Impressions
of Education in Africa.
Dr. Read will also hold seminars with Town Planning and
Architecture students and with
the Philosophy of Education
class.
On Saturday Dr. Read will
open the Vancouver Institute-
lectures with a talk on "Growing Up in an African Aristocracy."
SCHOLAR
The daughter of a country
doctor, Dr. Read was educated
at Rihodean School and at Cambridge University where she received   her  B.A.   and   M.A,
She got interested in Anthropology "because it was a study
that would help with the problems  of  cultural  change."
Returning lo Cambridge she
studied Cultural Anthropology
under Professor Malinowski
Scarfe and the Faculty of Edu- who she recalls as "a very greai
cation entertained Dr. Read at, teacher and scholar."

ANTHONY M. NUTTING
Nutting On
The Middle
EastMuddle
The Rt. Hon. Anthony M.
Nutting, former British Cabinet
Minister, will talk on "The
Muddle in the Middle East", in
the UBC auditorium on Friday,
October   17,   at   12:150   p.m.
Mr. Nutting, who resigned his
portfolio as minister of state for
foreign    affairs    ln    November,
1956,  over the Suez crisis,  will j
be  the third  notable to  be pre-J
sented  on   the Noon  Hour  Ser-1
ies and evening programs jointly   sponsored   by    the    Special
Events  and   Fine   Arts  commit-;
tees. :
WON SEAT
Born in Shrewsbury, Eng-1
land in 1920, and educated at j
Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge University, Mr. Nutting
won his seat in Parliament in
the general elections of 1945 at
the age of twenty-five. His fellow MP's were impressed with
his grasp of foreign affairs in
his maiden speech before the
House of Connmons.
Early in his Parliamentary
career, he became a sparkplug
in the newly formed Young
Conservative Association and
subsequently served as chairman of the National Executive
Committee of the Conservative
Party.
The youthful diplomat's renunciation of his career in government made world headlines
in November 1956, and was of
particular interest because he
had been regarded as a rising
star in the Conservative Party
and a special protege of Sir
Anthony Eden.
ASSOCIATION
In January of 1957, Mr. Nutting began his association with
tho New York Herald Tribune
syndicate in a six-part series of
articles of analysis of Anglo-
American   relations,
Since his resignation from active politics, the Britisher has
spent his time travelling in the
Middle East, studying nationalism in that area and methods
by which the Western Alliance
can work with nationalism in
preventing Communist infiltration.
asked for a mandate to enquire
into the situation of inter-regional scholarships. Said Connaghan, "We feel that the system is not working as well as
it might and we are very glad
to have been given the opportunity to improve it.
NFCUS has pledged itself to
obtain   more   scholarships   and
financial  aid for  Canadian students.
PLEDGE SUPPORT
Student exemptions from income tax was also on the agenda.
The Federation felt that the in-
comie tax department should
regard the payment of fees and
books in the same light as professional dues, as well as complete exemption for summer
earnings.
Thc Federation was unanimous in its decision that Canada
should have a national flag. A
National Student Day was also
proposed, in order to enlighten
the general public on what a
student is and what he does.
YOUTH   HOSTELS
The Federation gave a man-
dale to the U of Manitoba to
discover the possibility of arranging a series of youth hostels
across Canada, similar to those
lo be found in Europe.
Internationally, NFCUS pledged its support to the Algerian
students presently evicted from
universities in France. The Federation delegated member institutions to raise money in any
respect they saw fit, and to
send it to the head office of
the WUS in Geneva to be used
for the formation of scholarships for those Algerian students prevented from attending
French Universities.
They moved that letters be
sent to the U.S. National Student
Association and the Student As-
sociaion of South Africa regarding the Canadian students disapproval of the racial integration methods in practice in those
countries.
EXAMINE BOOKS
For the second year it was
resolved that NFCUS remain
outside the International Union
of Students as it's control and
organization are predominantly
communist.
However, any assistance they
offered, especially in the field
of travel would be accepted as
long as there were no administrative ties.

A Strange Place
There seems to be a rule in force on this campus,
written or unwritten, that forbids Honours English students
to work for The Ubyssey.
At least, this is what we are told by the Honours English
-Students who work for us. They insist that they remain
anonymous, for fear of falling from favor with their instructors.
We don't mind the very slight inconvenience this
causes us, and we are rather proud to be singled out thusly.
We'd just like to say we think this is a fairly stupid
rule. We would hate to meet the person who thought it up.
We are depressed enough by most of the people we come
in contact with here as it is.
Last year a Ubyssey staff member was forced to drop
an honours course in sociology or else quit The Ubyssey.
He could easily have taken on both tasks, and done well,
just as anyone intelligent enough to take an honours course
should be able to budget his time to include extra-curricular
activity. Fortunately for us, he chose to drop the sociology
honours.
Every year recently we have had the same or a similar
problem with one or two staff members. Usually they
leave us.
Aside from being petty, this sort of regulation is grossly
unfair to the student it affects, Surely he should be allowed
to choose for himself whether he can spare time for extracurricular work.
Though no public faculty statement ever has made
clear the reasons for this regulation, the feeling appears to
be that The Ubyssey is an organization which takes too
much of an individual's time. We get the impression that
we are considered to be a group of academic slackers.
This is not so, and even if it were, the rule would be
still unfair. We invite the makers of this rule to examine
the academic records of Ubyssey staff members. They will
find that academically we are no better and no worse than
members of any other extra-curricular organization.
We think that a university is a strange place at which
to have stupid rules.
Stunned
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I am stunned at the letters
you have received regarding
the initiation "ceremonies". Are
the participants proud of their
vulgar displays, in saying:—
"You didn't fight" — "I did so
fight"?
The engineers and Aggies are
nice guys as individuals. But
they looked and acted across
the grounds in pursuit of fleeing frosh boys and flattered
frosh girls that clay.
The comments I heard from
most onlookers were: 'silly',
'disgusting', and 'ridiculous'.
The comments from the engineers 'It's fun', or 'They did it
to us last year'.
It was bad enough to see the
bays kicking and struggling
and bashing each other around.
But it was shocking to see girls
thrown to the ground, their
new books squashed in the dirt
as bands of boys descended
upon them to smatter their leg3
with lipstick and to write the
word 'Sexy' across their foreheads.
Boys — did you enjoy doing
this? Did it ever occur to you
that in spite of the 'bag appeal'
that is allegedly sweeping the
campus — the bags do not contain potatoes to be thrown around at your whim? There are
ladies inside some of those
bags.
It would be convenient if we
were living in the days gone by
when men were entitled to
fight it out whenever they got
the urge and drag women
around by the hair. But unfortunately, we are supposed to
be civilized, Vewerw^er? And
men ane not mrrpfwsed to «mgh
It seemed likely that with
the recent emphasis on the problems of education on this continent, a fair measure of public
understanding and awareness
would have been reached by
now.
But recent editorial remarks
in the Vancouver Sun indicate
that the light has not yet reached the down-town area, at least.
On October 10, the Sun commented that they could see no
reason why "smart" students
should: be given scholarships.
In this context, of course,
smart is a pejorative term, and
that is in keeping with the tone
of the remainder of the editorial, which so far departs from
any attempt at reason as to use
Russia as an example, by implication, of a nation where the
second-rate are encouraged at
the expense of the best.
I will try and explain why it
seems to me extremely important that a scholarship system
should also be an incentive system.
The first question that faces
the enquirer is that of the results desired.
Do we want a system which
will turn out a few brilliant
scholars and scientists? That
is, few in relation to the total
population, though essentially
ALL the outstanding students
of each generation could be
caught in a selective net of this
kind, as the better European
systems can claim to do.
Or do we want a far larger
number of graduates, who will
take thoir place, an educated
class, as the leaders of the community, and as its professional
advisers, legal, medical, and
commercial.
At the moment it is probable
that we are not meeting either
requirement. Our universities
are geared to the mediocre. Of
the 10,000 students at UBC,
less than half, at a conservative
estimate, would be admitted to
any University in Europe, even
in the world.
The result of this overcrowding is that money is short,
which keeps staff salaries down
amongst other things. It is not
hard to envisage other ways in
which this situation threatens
house with women.
What is the matter with our
governing bodies — the faculty?   the students council?
Are the teachers so apathetic
that they allow children to
come to classes so outrageously
clad? Is the students council
unconcerned? or kept too busy
discussing salary increases? Or
do they think it is fun, too?
The students don't. The number which agree with initiation
practices are few, and the number that participate fewer,
So, for gosh sakes, let's abolish these needless exhibitions
of poor taste and immaturity.
Next year, let's help the frosh
get acquainted with UBC and
show them around this huge,
beautiful campus.
Let's point out our ponds to
our frosh, with pride, not kick
them in the pants and push
them in.
Sincerely,
SUSAN BRETT,
Arts III.
the    already    poor    academic
standards.
Yet there are also very obvious advantages, here in a dem-
ocracy, of having a high propor-
tion of the population educated.
That word is I think the key to
the situation.
The traditional concept of the
university is not of an educational centre, but of a centre of
learning, and learning in this
sense is intellectual achievement beyond the scope of the
"average student" and, even
more important, beyond his desires.
Perhaps 20% of the present
enrollment at UBC really desire
this sort of training. The work
of education is, and always has
been, the job of the High
School.
At the present time, the first
year a student spends at the
university is devoted to finishing off the job of the school.
To an increasing extent the
second year is similarly spent.
The specialist does not begin
work on hi9 subject until his
third year, with the result that
he leaves the university about
two years behind his European
equivalent at the Bachelor
level.
If he continues in Graduate
work, he may eventually make
up this leeway, over a period
of years, but even this is doubtful.
Within the English-speaking
world, this continent has not
yet matched in quality the output of Great Britain in most
areas of scholarship and science, as most students are well
aware.
Even in the production of a
highly literati class the comparison is discouraging. There
are still more and better-quality books published in Great
Britain in the course of a year
than in North America. There
are more and better magazines
devoted to current affairs. The
Press is more genuinely informative and more responsible.
Yet this literate Glass has
been produced by the High
Schools. Attendance at universities in Great Britain is only
a fraction of the proportion of
the population which attends in
Canada or the United States,
about 2%.
With this in mind, the recent
suggestion of Dean Andrew
that senior matriculation
should be added In as many
High Schools as possible is
without doubt a movement in
the right direction.
If to this could be added a
general tightening of standards,
with a new accent on ability
rather than conformity, then
once again our educated class
would come from the schools,
in far larger numbers than the
universities could produce.
Tho universities would then
again undertake their task of
producing the scholar and the
scientist, with the professional
schools continuing their function as before.
The staff would be better
paid, and would again have
me supreme pleasure of act-
dressing themselves to students
of ability, with the desire t<3>
learn,  rather  than  to  the  do-
pressing group of aimless, apathetic children, leavened with
budding socialites and junior
executive types, which too
often faces them at the unlikely hour of 8.30 (another result of over-crowding).
But what are we to do while
awaiting this educational mill-
enion? Surely the obvious answer is that we should emulate
the features of European universities which are most obviously effective in producing results.
In Russia, students are paid
while in attendance at the university, but more important,
because more nearly within our
present financial capabilities,
"Particularly good students are
rewarded with substantial bonuses." (John Gunther, inside
Russia, quoted in the Sun, Oct.
10).
In France, students of outstanding ability receive living
allowances from the Government.
In Britain, the student of ability is given a "State Scholarship" which pays most of his
expenses at university.
Much has been written about
the prestige factor in thi3
country. It is likely that in a
culture still dominated by the
dollar, prestige will be readily
attached to those considered
important enough to be partially supported by public funds
while at university.
Certainly it would be some
advance on the present prestige
situation, where the devoted
student spends his summers
working to earn his winter ex*
penses, to the d^' hv\<v:i ur mi
cVtmuai command of his field,
let it be noted, and his winters
in a boarding house, generally
underheated, or a basement
apartment, often unheated.
This in order that he may
eventually enjoy a position as
a teacher or research worker
which offers much less chance
of even an adequate living
standard than a short apprenticeship as an electrician or a
plumber would secure him.
He is quite rightly regarded
as a lunatic by the public at
large and by the vast majority
of his free-loading fellow students.
The scientist is a little more
favourably situated than the
Humanities student, because
the results of his work tend to
be more tangible and therefore
more prestige-worthy in a materialistic culture. Even here,
however, the accent is on applied rather than on pure science, to the eventual detriment
of the country.
The immediate answer to our
educational problem, then,
seems to me to rest on the question of incentives, largely on
those which could be provided
by an adequate scholarship system based on ability, results,
and the means test, especially
if it is made the vanguard of a
whole new educational emphasis on the full development of
the ability of the individual at
the university.

Ms FINANCES  - PART TWO
Where   Does
UBC Expenses
Broken  Down
By   MARY WILKINS
After examining UBC's income, the obvious step is to
then look at how this income is
spent.
UBC with an income of over
eight and a half million divides this money into five main
divisions according to the specific needs of each.
The following is a breakdown of these groups, and all
figures given are from the President's Report st'or the fiscal
year from April 1, 1956 to
March 31, 1957.
Apart from the administration building, where student
records and accounts are kept
by a staff of secretaries and
stenographers, there is also the
firehall, botanical gardens, the
President's office, the registrar's office, and all the offices
of the deans to be maintained
with this money.
Also included in this million
and a half dollars are buildings
and grounds, the power house,
and all the electricity, power
and gas used by the university.

ACADEMIC FACULTIES AND
DEPARTMENTS   AND   ASSOCIATED  ACADEMIC
SERVICES
$4,382,149.10 —   56.9%
Included in this category,
which takes up nearly 57% of
the revenue, are professors'
salaries, supplies, and some
equipment.
This percentage has been
steadily falling during the past
few years. In 1954-55, teaching
costs took 6-0.09% of the income.
The following year, this percent fell to 59.83, and in 1956-
57, the percent was down again,
56.9%.
How docs this compare with
other Canadian universities?
On the basis of .1.956-57 figures, teaching and academic
services provided 62 % of
expenditures at Queen's, 61.9%
at McGill, but only 55'■', at both
Manitoba and Carleton College.
Tho Universily of Toronto
allotted only 53'^ of ils expenditures to teaching.
The aim of every universily
is to spend as great a percentage in this field as possible and
to keep general administration
expenses low.
The Library expenses arc
also included in this figure as
it is an associated academic
service,
ADMINISTRATION   AND
NON-ACADEMIC  SERVICES
$1,635,059.85— 19.1%
This category includes every
service offered by or to the university.
FELLOWSHIPS, SCHOLARSHIPS, PRIZES AND
BURSARIES
S253.884.08 — 3.0%
Any scholarship, prize, bursary, or fellowship listed in the
university calendar will be paid
from this fund. These include
book and money prizes, ranging from ten dollars, to twenty-
five hundred dollars.
Most of this money comes
from government and private
industry.
This amount, however, does
not include any scholarships
which go directly from the
donee lo the recipient, without-
going through the University
first.
Dominion - Provincial Bursaries, many National Research
grants, Defense Research Board
grants, and other grants for
Social Science, Medical or Industrial Research are not ilidded in this three percent.

if given directly to the student,
will not be accounted for in this
money either,
RESEARCH
$892,231.45 — 10.4%
The University itself, provides almost a million dollars
to research.
Most of this is for graduate,
and post graduate work.
Research goes on in all faculties and departments, and special research personnel are
hired to carry on many research projects.
Most of the money for this
research comes from gifts, and
grants, from private donees,
and firms. The government
also provides money for research.
CONSTRUCTION and LAND
ACQUISITION
$213,424.36 — 2.5%
The construction included in
the above consists of such
things as moving huts from one
place to another, putting in new
shelves in the library, and
building small extensions.
In short, anything which is
not of great enough expense to
be included in capital expansion, is added in here.
MISCELLANEOUS
$104,143.63 — 1.2%
Miscellaneous items include
such things as trucks, some microscopes, affairs for alumni,
and alumni grants,
SPECIAL PROJECTS
$596,926.60 — 6.9%
During the year 1956-57 this
money, which came in because
of thc increase in thc Canada
Government grants, was put
aside for special projects during 1957-58.
Some of the money was spent
on inner renovation of the
Chemistry Building, and a cement block building for the
Fisheries Department, to house
the most extensive collection of
fish in Canada.
The remainder of the money
was used for ".special equipment for building for student
growth."
This was how UBC's money
was spent in 1956-57. It varies
little from year to year except
to increase Ihe amounts in each
of Ihe fields.
How is the budget arrived at?

Dos Passos' Lost Power
"The Great Days", a novel by John Das Passos.    McClelland, 312 pages,   $4.50.
John Dos Passos has lost his passage   about   the    Sacco-Van-   binds them together, neither the
political  faith  and   his   power, zatti execution of 1927 with the  feeling which  pervaded  U.S.A.
In   his   trilogy   U.S.A.,   written words,  "All right we  are  two
during the Depression and deal- nations.")
CRITICISM
ing with the period 1900-1930,
he used the class struggle idea
to give an underlying cohesive-
ness and emotional colour to
the events of the time. The three
books, The 42nd Parallel, 1919,
and The Big Money, constitute
a photograph of people struggling pointlessly in their stale
life-shells under the monster
capitalism.
For the manufacture of such
an atmosphere of sterility Dos
"Two nations," though certainly in a good part true at
that time, hardly applies any
miore, and Dos Passos is at a
loss for an explanation as simple
and as good.
Ro Lancaster tells the story
in The Great Days. He is a veteran newspaperman who cover-
or   anything   which   could   be
called a plot.
Ro reminisces a lot about
Secretary of State Roger Thur-

in view of the Russian ambitions and finally committed suicide. But this story is weak because it is told as observed by

Communist party in America in
a very bad light. To Jed, Communism had become a blind, a
faith, a refuge. When his play
failed his comrades consoled
him by blaming it on "the Interests." It gave him an excuse for
his inadequacies, a sense of power, and when he was told to
break off with the woman he
loved because she was reactionary, he complied.
Although Jed never wavered
in his allegiance to Communism,
Dos Passos left no doubt about
what he though of the faith.
What he had done for capitalism in U.S.A. he did for Communism in Most Likely To Succeed, though in a less spectacular manner.
In hi.s newest novel, The
Great Days, Communism is
pretty well a dead issue. For one
thing, it covers the period 1939-
1946, which does not lend itself to a class warfare interpretation as easily as did the
years 1900-1930, when the split
between property owners and
wage earners was particularly

"Joy burst in the play and

The story is about a grounded RAF pilot who is sent to

But there are in fact some
crises which cannot be smoothed over. This was recognized
and handled realistically and
convincingly in the similar play
and film, "Les Mains Sales,"
by Jean-Paul Sartre.
Sartre's character, upon realizing that he has killed an inno
cent man, allows himself lo lie
killed. This is not to suggest
that Sartre's is the only possible solution to the problem
but it at least has the necessary
depth.
Tho movie however contains
some striking scenes, particularly one in which the killer
in his victim's house, the guest
of his viclim-lo-be, watches his
daughter dance ballet, and listens to sounds of the victim's
wife brow-beating him. coming
from tiie kitchen.
A Canadian actor, Paul Mas-

The original play resulted in
a stalemate between Brick, the
young athlete estranged from
his wife and the world by his
love lor a dead loam-mate, aud
his passionate, resourceful wife,
Maggie the Cat.
At the instigation of director
Elia Kazan, Williams rewrote
the third act of the play for
the Broadway production, in
order that things might happen,
character change, and the force
of life triumph.
And this is the version lhal

It is a powerful story, bul

favour of the force of life, Williams gave extra weight to the
part of Big Daddy. Brick's
father, who though doomed to
die, continues to live for all ho
ia worth. But, even well played
by Burl Ives, Big Daddy is just
a big noise, as is the plotting
that  centers  around   him.

Tennessee Williams wrote
that he could not see how
Brick's conversations with Big
Daddy, however inspiring and
soul-searching, could pull Brick
out of his immobility.
And he was rignt. Brick's
change does not seem adequately motivated. It is hard to imagine that he could draw on his

and not the urinais that affected me. However, it was necessary to stealthily visit "Painters 11" many times before any
impression could be put to paper.
Admittedly these thoughts
are personal and the followers
of 1. A. Richards no doubt quite
justifiably may consider them
irrelevant. Still I feel there is
a place for attempts of this
nature for as Mr. MacNairn
pointed out it takes a lifetime
to   become   a   Ruskin.
After this piece of didacticism
"Painters 11" comes almost as
electric relief. Here is a group
of paintings that rush, surge and
gasp in a farrago of palette knifed   paint.
Rt y Mead's "Crescendo"
epitomizes the gro.up. This small
painting, its very smallness
makes it all the more dynamic,
is a spasm of colour' and glowing redness.

more are ridiculed mercilessly.

abstract argumentation, and to
their ability to quote Latin. In
view of the above facts, his
faith in Nature and in moderation is certainly commendable.
Whether one agrees or not
with his philosophy, the truth
remains that Moliere's common
sense, his realism and the tartness of his speech have endowed the French theatre and the
French language with a richness and a colour that have
survived wars, governments and
oblivion.

MACHINE MARKS
(Continued from Page &)
The machine is an unimpos-
ing one, about the size of a
small desk.
It works on the usual IBM
principle with small cards that
are punched with holes according to any set pattern.
The student marks his exam
paper on the proper space with
an electrolite pencil, and this
paper is placed in the machine
with the punched master card.
A dial on the machine then
tells the operator the number
of   questions   that   are   correct.

Inco Metals at work In Canada
To help insure the purity of the milk you drink,
the tanks on most modern dairy tank trucks are
made of stainless steel containing about 8% nickel.
The stainless steel for these tanks is manufactured
right here in Canada from nickel supplied by Inco.
ln Sudbury, Ontario, Inco workmen mine, mill and
smelt the nickel-bearing ore. Then it goes to Inco's
Port Colborne plant for refining. The refined nickel
is sold to a Canadian steel company for the production of stainless steel. And Canadian fabricators use
this nickel-containing stainless steel in the manufacture of dairy tank trucks and many other products.
There's INCO NICKEL in modern stainless steel
daify tank trUCkS... and it helps keep your milk pure
Otainless steel is a modern miracle metal. It
resists rust and corrosion. It won't stain or
tarnish. It has a bright, shiny surface that is easy
to keep clean.
No wonder so many modern housewives want
stainless steel sinks in their kitchens... stainless steel tableware in their dining rooms.
Architects have used stainless steel for years
to brighten and beautify the interiors of the
buildings they design .. . and now they're
using it for the exterior walls of buildings.
Food processing industries depend on it to
help keep their products pure.
Take the dairy industry, for example.  Modern
farms and dairies are now using stainless steel
equipment for handling and processing milk. The
milk seldom touches anything but stainless steel
from milking to bottling time. Even the tanks on
the huge trucks that haul milk from the farm
to the dairy are made with stainless steel to
protect the milk from contamination.
These dairy tank trucks are manufactured
in Canada. The stainless steel that goes into
them is also produced in Canada. Most of
the stainless steel made in Canada for dairy
equipment contains Inco Nickel. Another
example of the way Inco metals serve the
Canadian industries that serve you.
