By  IAN BROWN
. A new system of student government may be in effect on campus next
year.
In a meeting at noon yesterday, Student Council approved proposed constitutional amendments that, if accepted
by the students, would materially
change the composition of future Student Councils.
- These proposals will be voted on
by the student body at an extraordinary General Meeting, to be held
Thursday, Jan. 19.
If they are accepted, the number of
Councillors would be increased from
16 to 22.
The elected presidents of the 16 undergraduate societies would combine
with a 6-man executive consisting of
a president, secretary, treasurer, coordinator and two vice-presidents.
The undergraduate presidents are
elected by the students of their various faculties; the executive posts
would be filled by campus-wide election.
Because of the nearness of the
spring elections Council has acted
swiftly.
The proposed amendments are
based on a "Modest Proposal" drawn
up by Councillors Russ Brink and
Ross Craigie.
They  were  ironed out by Council
over the Christmas vacation.    .
"The student government will be
brought eloser to the students by including the Undergrad presidents in
the Council," said Ross Craigie.
This, Council feels 'is the answer to
student apathy caused by the rapid
growth of the University.
Both the Undergraduate Societies
and the Council Executive would take
care of much of the detail work which
is presently bogging Council down.
The only serious objection to the
proposed changes so far has come
from the Women's Athletic Directorate.
They feel that their interests may
suffer in some way if they  are  not
directly represented on Council, as
they are at present.
President Edgar said it was true
that interest groups such as the WAD
would be put off Council under the
new scheme, but he hoped that they
would look at it in an unselfish light.
"The overall advantages occurring
to the general student body," he said,
over-rides any disadvantage to these
interest groups." " ]
It is proposed that liaison officers
be appointed by the president to represent these groups on Council.
The proposals were approved by
all Councillors present, with the exception of WAD Councillor Sidney
Shakespeare, who abstained.

Two UBC scientists
given large grants
Two scientists in the department at biochemistry at the
University of British Columbia
have begun a long-term research project supported by a
grant of $74,461 from the public health service of the Department of Health, Education and
Welfare of the United States
government.
They are Dr. Gordon Tener
and John Vizsolyi, who were
both members of the world
famous group at the B.C. Research Council headed by Dr.
Har Gobind Khorana, who revealed in 1959 that Coenzyme A
had been produced synthetically
in the Council's laboratories at
U.B.C.
Dr. Khorana left the Council
in September, I960, to become
a director of the Institute for
Enzyme Research at the University of Wisconsin.
Dr. Tener, who joined the
UBC biochemistry department
in April, 1960, plans to add a
third person, a post-doctoral research  student,  to  his current
team, which will study the biochemistry of nucleic acids, the
basic genetic material for all
living things.
Every living cell contains a
fixed amount of nucleic acid,
Dr. Tenner explains. The nucleic acid is made up of nucleotides which are strung out
like beads on a string.
The sequence of neculeotides
is actually a code which determines the form of life which will
resut from the lowest to the
highest. In man, an additional
function of the necleotide sequence is the determination of
such things as the color of hair
and eyes.
Certain nucleotide sequences
are common to all individuals,
Dr. Tener says, but the lack of
specific sequences is thought to
produce various diseases such as
certain types of anemia and mental deficiencies. JAnotheir sequence undoubtedly endows an
individual with the qualities of
genius.

MacKenzie, announced today.
President MacKenzie said
Harlow had made an outstanding contribution to the growth
and development of UBC library
during the ten years he was a
member of the faculty.
"The fact that UBC possesses
one of the best libraries in Canada is, in large part, due to his
efforts," the president added.
INSTRUMENTAL CLUB
Harlow was responsible for
the formation in 1956 of the organization known as The Friends
of the University Library. The
group was instrumental in obtaining notable collections of
Canadian and Chinese literature
which have placed UBC in the
forefront of studies in these
fields.
He also planned the recent reorganization of the UBC library
which included construction of
the new library wing named for
Walter C. Koerner, a member of
the UBC board of governors,
who was one of the most generous of the Friends of the University Library.
NEW POST
In his new post Harlow will
head one of the leading schools
on the continent for the training of librarians. Rutgers i

of New Jersey" and was give"
its charter by George III a-
Queens College in 1766.
Harlow received his bachelo'
of education degree from tin
University of California at Lo-
Angeles in 1932 and the degr««
of master of arts from the Um
versity of California in 1949.

Hurrah!
1       Hurrah!
j       Hurrah for Dave Edgar!
Hurrah for Student Council!
Why tlie good cheer? Well, after five long years of procrastination^ something positive has finally been done about
student government at UBC.
Last term, AMS President Dave Edgar took the Bit in
his teeth and ordered that a tentative constitution embodying the proposals made earlier by rluss Brink and Ross Craigie,
1§e drawn up by .faiuiary 5 .
This was done, and the result was examined and passed
at special Student Council meeting Thursday.
s(Wheh trSAjC failed, Student Council went to work on
ihe problem of UBC's shaky, increasingly isolated student
government.
* ^Almost mihifcdiately, Publications Co-ordinator Ross
Craigie and Russ Brink, Co-ordinator of Activities, came up
with a "modest proposal"—a plan to shift the foundation of
student goverhMett^from activities to undergraduate societies
or faculties. The key section of the proposal calls for Student
Council to be composed of the sixteen undergraduate society
presidents plus a six-man executive.)
The new plan has great potential. By changing the base
of student government from activities to faculties, Student
Council will become a more representative group. The relative closeness of the undergraduate society president to those
in his faculty will give the average student a better chance
"to makeflits feelings known ahd a better chance of having
them acted upon.
■ Also, the cfhahge will tend to bring the undergraduate societies more directly into the student government system. At
preseht/the undergraduate societies operate in a very isolated
and inbred manner. If made the base for student government,
^ey will fend to be drawn closer together, producing a more
integrated system of student government.
This will supply at least a partial answer to the problem
*_tf 'bigness: The campus will be roughly divided into activities
fttaits^ which will become a cohesive whole for certain overall
^tiorisV Student government will be set up to foster this
Stfition.
*'■ !T__f-fci&v; very well also solve the problem of acclamations
fsiimitfi\:cfe^ have plagued Student Coun-
Sffni^ecelrt''feati. tt will provide an easier avenue for those
%„6 are im^estfecl in student government to work towards
j_tueteht Council. Committees will be moved out of the al-
.. i_ost exclusive jurisdiction of the Brock-types and given to
the undergraduate societies.
All this will tend toward better representation, more equal
opportunity for all, more effective communication between
students and sttideht government, and greater interest.
The UByssey applauds Mr. Craigie and Mr. Brink for
Originating the idea. We also applaud President Edgar for rec-
oghizih'g; the merit of the proposal, and moving swiftly to implement it.
"-'   v W& only hope that the movement will not falter in its
infant steps.
And, as -usual,' this is up to you.
There- will be a general meeting on January 19. It is in
tyour Best interests to inform yourself on the proposed change,
to attend the general meeting, and to vote intelligently.

Letters To
The Editor
$5 Gamble?
Editor,
The   Ubyssey,
Dear   Sir:
"Well, the almighty appeal
board squats on the nineteenth. It is out of our hands
now. Good Luck." If I wanted
to pay five dollars for consolation I would have gone to a
psychiatrist.
As you probably realize, my
car was unfairly impounded.
Apparently in this modern day,
one is centre - lane parked
against a concrete abutment;
or was that in the eighteen
hundreds? Being in the hole
financially, I have never intended to gamble five dollars
per day just for parking. For
this particular area, if illegal,
why was a warning sticker not
issued as is done to faculty
when a   change  occurs.
I thank you for your consideration; gentlemen? Too bad
they don't issue guns, then you
could play sheriff as well as
cars.
Just another student who
has the misfortune to drive
a small construction of worry around the campus.
K. Hall,
Ed.  II
Ma rx Emasc ti lated ?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Marxist theory . has been
emasculated at one blow. It
is not a man's class position
which determines his outlook
and role in society but his
chronological   age.
This was implied in a recent speech on campus by
Arthur Schlesinger Jr., one of
America's leading historians,
and an intellectual in the Kennedy camp.
We were told everything
would be different in American leadership because it
would have the vitality and
dewy-eyed idealism of youth.
Fresh from the greatest political circus of the age, our
"economist" had an arsenal of
devastating arguments, such
as: "If peace broke out and
military spending was cut
there would not be a depression because there was not one
after the war in 1945".
A man insinuating that the
post-war economy ' with high
employment and overtime,
large savings and a desire for
consumer products due to
scarcity, combined with the
devastation of competing industry throughout the world,
is identical to the present economic, should do some homework in dialectical materialism.
Will Canadians continue to
put their fate in the hands of
another nation when a representative has just illustrated
the complete intellectual bankruptcy _of the administrative
intelligentsia in the face of
disaster?
Schlesinger has said, "this is
the age of the young man."
Very well — Fidel Castro is
even younger than Kennedy.
Canadians would do well to
seriously consider the example of Cuba.
Robert Horn,
Graduate  Studies
-    (Mr.    Schlesinger    was    not
available   for   comment.   Ed.)
A   challenge
Robert Frost has said, "I never dared be a radical when
young for fear it would make me conservative when old." I
wonder what excuse you have, students of U.B.C. Probably
you are all so comfortable you don't even feel it necessary to
have an excuse. I have been looking in my dictionary for a
word to describe you and I find "torpid," which the Concise
Oxford explains as: dormant, numb, sluggish, dull apathetic.
I think that sums you up. Do you feel I'm unreasonable, Unfair? Consider.
If you buy your meals on campus you eat garbage nearly
every day without protest. Most of the food served up by Food
Services is a disgrace. Yet you pay high prices for it and do
not complain. Furthermore you eat it under conditions of
extreme discomfort because dining facilities are grossly inadequate. The coffee has been filthy for so long that it has
become a joke, a campus institution, and you accept it. God
help you, you even drink the stuff.
* * *
Busters! No reasonable person denies that parking problems became acute and desperate remedies were required. But
the high-handed attitude of Building and Grounds, personified in Mr. T. S. Hughes, should not be tolerated by you. As
soon as your car is towed away you are guilty. It could cost
you $25. The pretext is safety but cars were being towed away
during the week after Christmas when the campus was practically deserted; cars are towed away from half empty student
lots because the sticker is the wrong colour.
If your car is towed away you will have to wait upward
of a; month to recover it, unless of course, you plead guilty
by paying the fine. Only one student apparently feels strongly
enough to do anything about this situation and he threw a rock
at Buster's truck, and, God help us, he doesn't even own a
car. (Note for B.&G. Neither do I.)
Fraternities! Do you realize, you'who cluck your tongues
at apartheid in South Africa and white supremacists in New
Orleans, that right here on the U.B.C. campus there are organizations which exclude all who are not of pure Aryan,
blood. They are called fraternities. Do you understand that fellow students of yours willingly joined these groups and thereby subscribed to constitutions which are a flagrant denial of
the U.N. Charter of Human Rights and our own Canadian
Bill of! Rights? Does this bother you at all? Does it disturb
you? It seems not. They have been doing this for years without hindrance.
Civil Liberties. A member of the faculty is to be deported
under circumstances Which might be described as somewhat
cloudy. What have you, the students of U.B.C. done about
this? Nothing! It has been left to some faculty members to organize a fund to pay her legal expenses. You should be
ashamed.
* —        —
The only time I've seen you rouse yourselves was last
year when Tim Buck came out to speak. You heckled and
threw things and wouldn't let him speak. Why? Because he's
a communist and you don't like communists, do you? And yet
I say this: If the communists ever get to power in Canada it
will be the ones who bayed the loudest at Tim Buck who will
be the loyal commisars and apologists for the system.
So what are you doing now? Waiting for Tim Buck to
come back to U.p.C. so that you can rouse yourselves from
your torpor once again and give him the old one-two again?
Well, while you're waiting there are a few matters that require your attention. Food Services, Busters, Fraternities I've
mentioned. There's also Students' Council.
What about the Councillors you elected or permitted to
get in by. acclamation (sic). Are you satisfied with them?
You probably are because they reflect what you yourselves es-
sentialy are—dormant, numb, sluggish, dull, apathetic. I suggest to you that you turf the lot of them and put in some leaders who can lead, who are not merely occupying positions and
chairs rtiund a table once a week, forming committees "to
look into the matter" as a defence mechanism like a squid
squirting out ink to hide itself.
Maybe you feel campus affairs aren't important. If so you
are mistaken. The attitudes you develop here are the ones wou
will take with you when you graduate. If you don't care now
you aren't going to care later. Acquiesce to the high-handed
attitude of Mr. T. S. Hughes today and tomorrow maybe you'll
be acquiescing to some neo-Hitler. You'll have got into the
habit. In fact, I suspect you already have.
Right now you think the world is a lovely, comfortable
place with all your needs and most of your wants supplied by
a combination of God, Free Enterprise, and your parents. The
world isn't like that. The world right now is a very dangerous
place, it might be blown up any minute. Also the world is
alive with new ideas, full of challanges. While you're picking
up a degree why not try to prepare yourselves for these challanges. It's a lot better insurance than that which N.F.C.U.S.
trying to sell you. —KEN HODKINSON. Friday, January 6, 1961

Student Liberals
sweep  elections
OTTAWA (CUP) — Student
Liberals, have won all five model parliament elections held
so far, three of which have been
marred by irregularities.
They won at Memorial in St.
John's and won over PC government at McGill. At Western they
won in a traditional Tory stronghold, the victory at Manitoba
was a repeat performance, and
in Saskatchewan they took the
government from a reform party.
The PC's fortunes, which
were on the upswing prior to
the election of the first Diefenbaker government, dropped last
year as the Liberals swept up
five of the eight seats dropped
by the Conservatives, taking
seven victories to their five.
However, a series of irregularities and student apathy this
year overshadowed what in
some cases might have been a
Conservative victory. Political
tendencies were hardest to determine at McGill where 40 per
cent of the ballots (720 votes)
were declared void. The McGill
Daily said this brought the percentage of student participation
down to 12 per cent. The Liberals  won 273  voces, the  GNU
Holland now head
of Asian  studies
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie, has
announced the appointment of
William L. Holland, secretary-
general of the Institute of Pacific "Relations in New York, as
head of the department of Asian
studies at U.B.C.
The president also announced
that the quarterly journal
'iPactfic Affairs," which Mr.
Holland edits would be published at UBC.
Holland is a graduate of the
University of New Zealand
where he obtained the degrees
of bachelor and master of arts.
156, PC's 134, CCF 61, and the
New Party 22.
Although ballot boxes were
stolen at Western the Liberals
received 697 votes to 550 for
the PC's and 138 for the CCF.
Only 41 percent of the students
voted compared to 46 per cent
last year.
At Manitoba 200 votes cast
by the Faculty of Accountancy
were disqualified because the
council representative forgot to
lock the ballot box, and to
strike the names of those who
had voted from the voters list.
The 450 eligible votes might
have given the Tories a minority   government.
Only one-half of the eligible
voters cast ballots, giving the
Liberals 1,315 votes, the PC's
998, the CCF-New Party 523
and the Communists 90. The
Liberals took 27 of the 60 seats
in parliament, exactly the same
number won by the Conservatives   last  year.
In Saskatchewan the Liberals
took 23 of the 55 seats, the CCF
19, the PC's 11 and the Communists two. As yet no standings are in from Memorial.
Varied evening
classes offered
Forty evening classes, ranging from finance io anthropology, will be offered by the
UBC extension department beginning in mid-January.
Expected to attract 1,100
registrants, the non-credit
courses cover music, anthropology, current affairs, finance, home economics, languages, and  religion.
Professional courses include
field astronomy for engineers
and surveyors, automatic
control, and a refresher course
in  pharmacy   for   graduates.
For further details, enquire
at the UBG extension department.
Memorial scholarship
A memorial to the late Edward J. Savannah of Victoria
University will take the form
of a perpetual scholarship for a
third year student continuing
work in chemistry or allied
science in the fourth year.
Letters will be mailed early
this year to friends and former
students, inviting them to participate.
Debate on Laval
livens   CUP   talks
The National Conference of the Canadian University Press
last week moved a motion  of censure  on the administration
and the Student Council at Laval University in Quebec.
The motion reaG as follows:
Whereas three members of
the staff of Le Carbin, Laval
University, have been expelled
as a result of certain articles,
the Canadian University Press,
while not condoning the content
of the articles, deplores:
1. The expulsion of the three
students which appeared abrupt
and arbitrary, by the University
Council, precluding action
contemplated . by 1'Association
Generale des Etudiants d e
Laval.
2. The apparent failure of the
AGEL to fulfil its responsibiity
to support the staff members of
Le Carabin and the principle of
freedom of the press, in that insufficient effort was made to
have the students re-instated, or
at least to aid them financially.
'The Canadian University
Press regrets this incident. In
order to avoid such •occurrence
in the future, we urge:
—that member papers adhere
to the Canadian University Press
Code of Ethics;
—^hat student governments
fulfil their responsibilities toward their student press;
—that university administrations avoid infringements upon
the rights and liberties outlined
in the Charter of the Student
Press in Canada (1959) which
the student press must enjoy in
order to serve any worthwhile
purpose.
FWneteen papers voted for
the motion; The Varsity refused
to vote and two abstained.

Students   are   spiritual   slobs;
cant    defend    their    religion
The very place where tenets
of conviction are distributed,
the university, fails miserably
in religion. The average Canadian university student can
not defend his faith.
Introductory philosophy
courses always shake a student's convictions. For the
first time he finds himself
questioning and being questioned over topics he had previously blithely accepted as
almost infallible.
On Western's campus there
are many strong religious
groups. Their memberships
aren't astronomical when the
registration of the university
is considered, however, they
are an earnest bunch of students. But what do these clubs
do?
They have nice little meeting. They have parties and
dances and they fill thmeselves
with warm "Christian Fellow,
ship" feeling by reciting little
prayers and. singing sweet
hymns.
The Gazette
University of Western Ontario
But they don't begin to instruct their members on how to
defend their faith against non-
believers and agnostics. Perhaps they feel this would
lower them to the level of the
questioners of their faith.
Instead they accept some
sort of comforting idea that
non-believers, agnostics and the
rest of the foolish sinners will
all be barbecued or something
so why worry about them anyway.
If you are a Christian and
you believe in your religion
you should be ready to defend it. Once upon a time there
used to be lions to take care of
the most enthusiastic defenders
of the faith, now there is Communism ready to take the place
of a decayed faith.
You can't defend your beliefs by ignoring arguments
against them. This would be
an assumption of infallibility.
It seems when there are huge
challenges for a movement to
meet,   it  becomes   seedy  and
pompously self contented.
The university campuses in
Canada have the intellectual
leaders of tomorrow straggling
about them. Who is going to
lead religion in its all-important battle against doubt, distrust, disbelief and garden-
variety evil, if the intellectual
leaders are mentally, incompetent to defend their faith?
Christian students are frustrated in conversations with
non-believers and agnostics because they are lazy. They feel
someone more qualified than
they will do their answering
for them. That someone is generally their minister whom
they probably don't know anyway because they never go to
church.
Let us smarten up and stop
singing sweet hymns in favor
of a few well-worded intellectual growls.
Defending religion or any
other belief has never made
them weaker. It can only make
them stronger both for the individual and for the Christian
people as a. whole.

As Samuel H. Miller, dean
of the Harvard divinity school
said recently, "Whatever a
man's soul may be, it changes
from epoch to epoch." Just as
fashions change in hats and
houses, so are there changes
in the style of being human.
The changes in western society
have been away from Christianity.
Western man has slowly
lost the content of a Christian
world View and has set his
feet upon a new vision of a
natural universe. Heaven and
Hell have disappeared or
changed their character; miracles have been rationalized or
evaporated; experience of even
the most subtle form has been
reduced to natural dimensions.
Christianity for the majority
of the world nan become not
much more than an idealistic
ethic.
As a result, Miller says, man
has reduced himself to a one-
level world. In this world,
there are no degrees of importance, for the hierarchy of
experience has collapsed; we
have no standards by which to
judge anything, for the moral
statements of a naturalistic
universe end ultimately in relativism.
The meaning of Christmas in
this context is crystal-clear.
Against the relativism, the
lack of means of measurement,
the loss of orientation in the
world, we have the news that
at   a   particular  point  in   his
tory, God, the unchanged, unconditioned, the ultimate, entered into the natural realm
with the birth of a small child
in a manger 2000 years ago. As
a living expression of God's
love for us Christ was the real,
objective, historical thing to
which we could relate and
giving thereby our lives mean-
and direction.
He remains today—through
the witness of the Holy Spirit
and the Scriptures — the only
way in which you or I, or anyone, can reach ultimate reality
and thus give life meaning.
Christmas, besides being a
time of general good cheer and
fellowship, should remind us
of this fact which is so all-
important in our outlook towards the world —V. V

An atheist's answer
to God and religion
By JOHN  KEKES
The Queen's Journal
Queen's University
My thesis is that (1) the ultimate concern i.e. the basic
assumption of .Christianity is self-contradictory, (2) the system built on the ultimate concern does not correspond to
facts.
"We believe," says the Editor of the Theology Journal,
"that the only ultimate concern which will not eventually
prove to be an illusive idol is the God who created the whole."
I intend to prove that it is an illusive idol.
In Christian theology to God was attributed the qualities
of eternal being and perfection. Perfection presumably includes omniscience, benevolence and omnipotence. I shall
show that these qualities are contraries, i.e. they can not be
true together though they may be false together.
I am aware of the Thomist objection claiming that no adequate statement can be made about the nature of God. The
term) "God" however was introduced into the vocabulary and
if it is to have any meaning then we have to define it. The
definition that I adopted is a Christian one and it is either acceptable or we do not know what we are talking about.
Omniscience, benevolence and omnipotence are contraries. In order to show this I shall use some arguments which
by no means are new but which are so emphatically overlooked.
**• ■$• •*•
If God is benevolent and omnipotent then how can he
allow evil? How can he allow the suffering of the innocent?
How could he allow the Inquisition; how could he allow the
cruel puritanism of Calvin; how can he allow concentration
camps; and how can he allow capital punishment?
It might be objected that for God evil is different than for
Man. Now if there is a being who has the power to prevent
the above atrocities and does not because he does not consider
them wicked then I wish no communion with him.
If God is both omniscient and benevolent then either Man
is .not responsible for his actions or God not not what, according to the Christians, he is. For God EITHER knows prior
to my action what my action will be, in which case I am
determined to act in a certain way and thus have no choice
and consequently no responsibility, so I can do evil, OR God
does not know my future choice, in which case he is not omniscient. In either case, God is imperfect for he either allows
evil or he does not know the future.
A number of similar predicaments are inherent in Christian theology but I think these two will suffice. Of course it
is easy to evade the issue by saying that there are certain
things that we can not comprehend, or all evil is brought
about by Man, or that I should study theology prior to criticizing it. These points may all be true but unfortunately they
are  not convincing.
V •*• "*•
I hope to show that Christian dogma is self-contradictory.
My next step is to ask for a justification for making moral
judgments on the basis of a self-contradictory dogma. I am
questioning tlhe right of any Church to make moral judgments, as Churches, about birth control, about other religions,
about sexual life etc. What justification does any Church have
to send missionaries to primitive and allegedly pagan tribes?
I reject Christianity and all other religions because they
fail to give a convincing argument for their acceptance. I
sincerely believe that all human beings ought to be ultimately
concerned. Ultimate concern however does not mean adaption or irrationality or unquestioning acceptance. Ultimate
concern is the acceptance of our responsibility as human beings. We are rational human beings free to act, free to choose.
Our ultimate concern ought to be to make the right choice and
to accept the responsibility for it. We ought not to look neither
for praise nor for encouragement to a super-human being.
We are responsible for ourselves and there is nobody who will
relieve this responsibility. We are free, let us live up to our
potentialities.

*        *        *
These are the words of John Kekes in his 'An Atheist's
Answer to Theology' from the Queen's Journal.
Here, Mr. Kekes claims all religion to be irrational and
attempts to prove his point by using as an example the Christian view of God, claiming that the definition is self-contradictory.
Mr. Kekes, however, has made the common mistake of
trying to prove a point from an isolated view, not taking into
consideration the whole, either because he knows that doing
so will defeat his purpose, or because he simply has not made
a complete study of theology (which is necessary to criticize
it, despite Mr. Keke's view).
In the first place, Mr. Kekes' works on the view that Christianity is a fatalistic theology, that omnipotence implies that
God has control of every action we make. Why, then, does he
allow evil, suffering, war and so on? Man, he says, is free to
act and choose because God does not control man's actions,
Christian teaching is self-contradictory, and therefore false.
That man is free to choose is the crux of the entire matter.
If, as I pointed out earlier, Mr. Kekes had looked at the
point in relation to the whole, he would have been disappointed to find his argument non-existent.
It is generally regarded by the Christian church, I believe,
that the purpose of live is to prove what degree or state one
is worthy of in the after-life. If this is so, if God wants to find
this out about each individual man, then it would be against
His ^purpose to control man's every action. Thus God gives
maii his free agency to make of this life what he will; to prove
what position he is worthy of in the after-life.
*        *        *
Therefore, God does not prevent evil, suffering, and so on,
because it is his desire to find out what man will make of this
life, not what God will do with it.
It is obvious, then, that Mr. Kekes has made conclusions*
without studying theology, and in particular, Christianity, or
else he has misinterpreted the facts, for what fhe assumes to
be a part of Christianity, i.e. a fatalistic attitude concerning
God's relationship to man is not a part of it. His argument
falls apart, because it is based on something non-existent.
It would behoove us, then, to study something thoroughly
before making generalizations concerning it.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

yoWi QamfmA (Bahbsih
Yes, I am a Unitarian.
However, in answer to the
question "What do Unitarians
believe? I can only state what
characteristics beliefs have
persisted among  us.
A Unitarian believes that in
religion, as in everything, each
individual should be free to
seek the truth for himself, unhampered by official creeds.
Our purpose is to diffuse the
knowledge of and promote the
'Ailjerests of religion, which
Jesus taught as love of God and
love of man. But nething in
these purposes is to be construed as authoritative.
We hold the unity of God as
a creating and sustaining
power in the universe that both
pervades all being, giving it
order and form, and transcends
all existence, as the whole is
greater than its parts. We hold
that the divinity we cherish is
manifest in the world around
us. The nature and development of this supernatural being differs among Unitarians,
depending upon one's reason
and understanding. Each is free
to experiece "God" in the manner in which he is able.
*        *        *
We hold that Jesus was one
of the great teachers and prophets of Palestine, learned in
the wisdom of the Jews, synthesizing and transforming
the faith of his heritage and
forwarding a new, universal
gospel or way of life which
emphasized the dynamics of
love.
By H.F.
UAC Gauntlet
The University of Alberta
In him we see an example
of an ideal relation of man td
God and man to man, and in
the record of his teachings we
learn a high standard of faith
and of works. We believe that
Jesus means much more as a
person and teacher than as a
supernatural figure, a Saviour, or a part of the Trinity.
We hold that revelation is
continuous and that man is
contantly learning more and
more about the nature of universe and the creative power
that sustains it. We do not
think the Bible is a supernatural revelation, but do find
in it many insights and messages of enduring value. Most
Unitarians think that the
scriptures of other great re-
igions are of similar value.
Though our faith is essentially formed in continuity with
the Judeo-Christian traditions,
we ascribe finality to no past
formulations.
*        <* *
We hold to the supremacy
of reason. Unitarians rely upon science and modern knowledge more than upon the
dogmatic teachings of the past.'
Men were endowed by their
creator with intelligence by
which they may in the words
of Paul, "prove all things, and
hold fast to that which is good."
Although our powers of ' reason are limited by our own
experience, so that our faith
extends beyond what may be
rationally demonstrated, still
we hold that religious beliefs
cannot be contrary to reason.
The Bible is also subject to the
judgement of -reason, so we
hold to the truths of biblical
scholarship, accepting for ourselves what is good because it
is true.
An intelligent evaluation is
our surest guide to truth in
religion. For this reason a
Unitarian's approach to religion is in harmony with
science.
*    .    * *
We may believe in an afterlife if one is so persuaded by a
conviction based upon the
meaning and purpose that we
find in our present life; but we
do reject the belief in eternal
punishment as being credible
and immoral.
Are we Christians? If the
teachings of Jesus is regarded
as Christianity rather than the
teachings about Jesus, Unitai-
ans may be regarded as Christians.
An article of this length cannot hope to answer all questions concerning Unitarianism.
Its purpose is to stress to people
of dogmatic religious background, who find it incomprehensible that there can be such
a thing as an undogmatic faith,
that it is a mistake to take a
lack of dogmatism for a lack
of positive faith. Unitarianism
is no easy road. Rather, it offers a framework within which
you are free to work out your
own set of beliefs, "Unitarianism is no life preserver. But if
one is willing it will teach
him how to swim."

Birds chopped from Totem pole
' By PETE GELIN
The University of Puget
"Loggers chopped UBC's Totem Tournament champion
Thunderbirds from their
perch last weekend, handing
the Birds their first loss of
the young season.
The Loggers, who finished
third hi the strong Evergreen
conference last year, beat the
Birds 56-5.1 and 52-51 in a
couple of hard-fought encounters.
Tonight and Saturday at 8
the   Birds   host   another top-_
rated   Evergreen   school,   Seattle Pacific College, at Memorial Gym.
The Loggers, lead by six-
foot-six, 212-pound Fred
Wilde choked the Bird of-
ienee. Forced to shoot from
the outside by Wilde &  Co.,
the Birds failed to mount any
threat until too  late.
The next night, in a spine-
tingling contest the two teams
traded basket for basket
throughout the game until
the final six seconds when
UPS pressured the home team
into losing the ball and drove
in for the winning two points.
Top scorer for UBC was Ken
Winslade, sinking 13 points
and 20 points on successive
nights.
Earlier in the month, the
Birds defeated the highly-
rated Western Washington Vikings 72:65 in the Totem
Tournament semi-finals. The
difference proved to cpme
from the foul line as UBC
sank 34 of 39 attempts to provide the margin of victory.

Leading the scorers was Mike
Potkonjak with 15 points and
McCallum and Dave Way

The following night, Dietrich-Collins and UBC met
head on in the first all-Canadian final in the history of
the Tournament. D-C's had
defated Seattle Federal Old
Line 67-63 to gain a be.rth in
the finals.
In the first half D-C's took
a slight lead but better conditioning paid off for the Birds,
enabling them to come back
and take a commanding 50-37
lead with only 10 minutes
left. With ex-Bird Barry
Drummond fouling out D-C's
board strength ceased to exist.
With Wayne Osborne
charge of the boards and Ken
Winslade taking care of the
second half scoring, the UBC
lead was insurmountable and
the home squad went on to a

This was only tne second

AUSSIE  IMPORT  ALAN   MORTON,   shown   here playing against UBC  on  the Australian  International team,  has left UBC  for Oregon,  along with sidekick Gordon Treble.
'Birds lose Aussie aces
By CHRIS FAHRNI
The Thunderbirds ace Aussie rugby duo, Alan Morton
and Gordon Treble, migrated
to the University of Oregon
campus over the holidays.
Eager to return to the sun
and surf of their native Aus-
trailia, the twosome found
that they could complete
their Physical Education B.A.
in one year at Oregon, while
at U.B.C. (and other universities), it would take them two
years.
The difference in systems
is that Oregon doesn't require a second major for a
P.E. degree. It is thus possible
for football players to slide
through on courses such as
Muscles 100, Bones 200, etc.,
without cluttering their minds
With academic subjects.
Morton, of international
fame, starred for the Birds at
outside centre throughout the
first half of the season. His
speed and tackling ability was
instrumental   in   the  victory
over Yawata, the Bird's first
international win.
Treble was, a savage, open-
style breakaway, thoroughly
unpopular with opposition
scrum halves, in fact he was
"Treble-threat."
Officially, the two were removed from the lineup in
mid - November, when they
first considered Oregon.
Besides losing Morton and
Treble, they have lost their
star fullback - turned - outside
centre Neal Henderson for a
month. He is in the hospital
recovering from an operation.
The Thunderbirds will not
compete in a city league this
season but they hope for exhibition games with city
teams this January. The team
begins a hard, grinding, conditioning   program  preparing
them for their McKechnie
Cup game Feb. 4 in Victoria.
Should they win, they would
play the winner of the Vancouver-North Shore game the
following weekend.
After a city exhibition
game, they leave for Berkeley, Where they play two
games with the University of
California.
The proposed visit of a team
from Dartmouth has been
posponed for a year.
Over the holidays, the
Thunderbirds, handicapped by
the loss of the two Aussies,
lost to title-hungry Kats '5-0.
When questioned about this
game, coach Bob Morford
threw up his hands and declined to comment. "We've a
strong team, but we can't
seem to win decisively." he
said. "All the opposition's
tries have been scored on our
mistakes, not on their own
merit."

"Canada's most complete high fidelity Centre"
In a special meeting of the
Men's Athletic Committee
November 30, Dean A. W. Matthews called for a review of the
1958 Senate Report, particularly
those recommendations dealing
with men's athletics.
Some of the points reviewed
dealt with the following recommendations:
(a) that an extra mural program
me of sports be regarded as
an essential part of comprehensive university experience.
(b) that there should not be an
imbalance between spectator sports and those sports
which are more specifically
participation sports. In
other words, expansion of
the spectator sports should
not be at the expense of the
participation  sports.
(c) that the MAC, as a president's committee, continue
to administer the men's
athletic  programme.
(d) that scholarships based
merely on participation in
University athletics are not
in the best interests of this
University.
(e)   Eligibility—that   while   the
present   eligibility   rules
were    acceptable    in    the
main, the M.A.C., it found
necessary should be expected   to   make   recommendations to Senate in this regard,
(g)   that    compulsory    physical
education    programme    be
continued.
(Prof. Osborne reported that the
Faculty of Arts and Science had
discussed    the    possibility   "of
eliminating  the   compulsory' aspect of  the  required P.E.  programme, and that a committee
under  Dr.  Chapman,  had  beeu-
set up to look into this.)
(i)    that   the   Board   of   Governors supplement the contribution   to   athletics   of  the
A.M.S.
(j)    that a subsidiary grant be
made    during    the    initial
year, to assist in the financing of WCIAU competition,
(k)   that    a    deficit-sharing    arrangement    between    the
Board of Governors and the
AMS be  worked  out  as. a
safeguard :for the interests
of minor sports.
