A large number of people attended with great curiosity the1
meeting of the Parapsychology
society on  Wednesday  noon.
The society, which was formed lasl February, has .set as ils
object the objective investigation of psychic phenomena.
One ot the projects of the
Society is the study of sensory
cues below lhe threshold of
awareness as a possible explanation of psiphenomena.
N. P. Wood, who has undertaken this project, outlined his
plans and cited some interesting
cas-es of a person being able; to
discover a hidden object in a
room,  when  blindfolded.
Mr. P. Themis, the president
of the society gave a talk and
a demonstration on "psychokinesis," which is the ability of the
mind to move or influence inanimate objects, without the.1 intervention of mechanical or other
physical means.

All of the students interviewed expressed thus view. The majority of them (19 in all) felt
that the unemployment situation would increase CCF representation and decrease thc number of Socreds in office.
To quote well-informed student leader Jim McFarlan, "I
don't care whether the Tories
or Whigs get in, as their policies
are the same as far as I'm concerned. I would like to see an
increase in LPP representation."

Communists Oppose
Student Visitations
To Eastern Europe
A proposed international delegation of university students to the countries of Eastern
Europe has been cancelled because of the lack of co-operation of the Communist dominated
Eastern European Universities.
All campus cartoonists
and the pub hierarchy
should be present at The
Ubyssey office Monday
noon. This meeting is very
important. A great deal of
art work is to be done.
Twelve UBC professors have
received grants totalling $52,-
832 from the National Cancer
Institute of Canada for research.
This is the largest grant ever
given lo B.C: researchers. Last
year the grant was $19,216 less.
The largest award of $20,000
was given jointly to Doctors
Marvin DarraCh, Alan Paterson,
and Sidnay Zbarsky of the UBC
biochemistry department, who
are studying cell growth, particularly the accelerated growth
of cells in cancer. They hope to
find some means of controlling
thc growth process.
Others, such a.s Dr. Cyril
Reid and Dr. Rosenthal of the
chemistry department, are trying to find from the chemical
and physical structure of the
cancerous cells a method of controlling the disease.
Dr. Denqs Ford, of medicine,
was granted about $5,000 and a
$6,000 fellowship to continue his
studies of cell behavior.
Other researchers receiving
grants are Dr. Biely, Dr. David
Boyes, Dr, H, K. Fidlcr, Dr.
Thomas, and Dr. Kidcl.
Many of the researchers are
previous grantees. Some, such
as Doctors Zbarsky and Darrach,
have received grants from the
Institute for the past five years.
Cancer is one of the most
serious diseases today. It is estimated that over 20,000 Canadians will die of cancer this
The Institute is a.co-ordinative
body which receives its money
from the provincial divisions of
the   Canadian   Cancer   Society.
The Co-ordinating Secretariat
of the National Unions of Students explained, "Based on the
response from most of the national student organizations of
the countries designated by the
Conference to be visited, it is
clear there will not be forthcoming the co-operation without
which a fraternal delegation
cannot succeed in realizing the
purposes oi widening international student contacts, co-operation and mutual understanding
wrfich it was designed to fulfil
by the Conference."
Shortly after the Seventh International Student Conference,
held in Nigeria in September,
1957, the Secretariat requested
the co-operation of the student
organizations in Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland,
Rumania and the Soviet Union,
the countries designated by the
Conference to be visited.
The Council of Youth Organizations of the Soviet Union was
the first' to replv, refusing to
provide hospitality for the delegation.
The Polish Student Association (ZSP) wrote shortly before
their National Congress in December, indicating interest in
the project, and reporting that
it would be discussed at their
Then a sharply-worded rejection followed from the Dimitrov
Union of Working Youth ip Bulgaria. The local Union at the
University of Budapest likewise
rejected  the  Delegation.
The objections raised by these
three groups seem to arise largely from misunderstandings as to
the nature and objectives of thc
Delegation, so thc Secretariat
again contacted these groups to
plea for a reconsideration of the
decision to refuse co-operation
with the project, underlining
that it was a fraternal delegation, sent on behalf of the 63
National Unions of Students
participating in the ISC, who regretted their lack of contacts
with student communities in
Eastern Europe and saw this
delegation as a means of enlarging co-operation and mutual understanding with these students.
"This 'is indeed a regrettable
loss of a chance to further
friendly relations and exchange
of ideas through the young people of all countries concerned,"
stated an unidentified fourth-
year Arts student.

The two preceding articles
in this series have dealt with
the relevance of adult education to the university ^student
and with the two functions the
Extension Department performs, "extension" and "adult
education". This one will take
up the question of the unique
role  of  thc  university  in  the
adull education field.
There are many other agencies in British Columbia which
carry on adult education programs of various kinds. They
include the Department of Education, many school boards,
the Haney Correctional Institute and the Department of
Labour, all on the public services level. They also include
voluntary organizations such
as the YM and YWCA, the
Council of Women, Parent-
Teacher    Association,    Mental
Visitors Predict Tory Victory
Political Science Club
If the sampling of public
opinion taken at Open House
is reasonably accurate, then
Mr. Diefenbaker can be well
assured of another victory on
March 31.
Over 55% of the 2250 people who passed the Political
Science display stopped to predict the election, and after
more than a hundred defective
entry blanks were discarded,
because total seat predictions
were nowhere near 265, or
forecasts were utterly fantastic, there was a total of 1151
predictions to be tabulated.
The results indicated some very
definite trends.
First, 975 prognosticators,
85% of the total, predicted a
Conservative victory. Of this
group 45% predicted the Tories would gain an absolute
majority of the seats (133 or
Only 171 persons foresaw a
Liberal victory, and only 29
of them saw Mr. Pearson's party gaining an absolute majority.
Turning to the small parties,
there was a very notable variance in the predictions for the
two parlies. 537 predicted thc
CCF would lose scats, 477 predicted it would gain, and 137
predicted the party would keep
its 25 seats. In short, 53'i-
predicted thc CCF would
either keep its present standing or gain scats. This was
definitely not the case with
Social Credit.
Of the 1151 predictions, 948
foresaw .that Social Credit
would lose seats.   A bare 14 %
predicted a gain for Solon
Low's party, while another
4% foresaw the party holding
its present 19 seats.
A further breakdown of the
results finds half the predictors giving the Tories between
124 and 149 seats. A Conservative landslide, as characterized by the capture of at 16ast
150 seats, was envisoned by
123 persons, while only 64
foresaw the party winning less
than 100 seats.
With thc Liberals, of course,
it was a different story. Only
5 persons predicted that Pearson would gain 150 or more
scats, while 433 felt he would
not win more than 90!
Turning once again to Mr.
Coldwell's party, it can be seen
that the predicted fluctuations
were very moderate. 70% of
those who foresaw a CCF decrease felt the party would
still keep al least 13 seats,
while 75% of those who predicted the Socialists would not
lose also felt they would not
win more than 31 seats.
The prognostications for Social Credit reveal a very definite downward trend. 45%
foresaw the parly winning less
than 13 seats while but 3%
saw it winning more than 25.
Since prizes are lo he awarded to the persons whose divinations are closest to the actual
results, a final question —
predict whal percentage of the
electorate will vote — was
asked as a lie-breaker. Ignoring
the possibility of cold weather
on the prairies and in thc East,
71%' foresaw a turnout exceeding 60%     of    the    electorate.
Over half predicted that between 61% and 75% of the
eligible voters would cast their
Although these results may
be indicative of some basic
trends, their authenticity must
be regarded as not too conclusive. Those 1151 persons do
not form a cross-section of
Canadian voters. Since most
of them are urban dwellers,
and Social Credit receives a
great deal of rural support, it
is quite possible that that party's forecasted results are exaggerated. Another factor
contributing towards inaccuracy is that sample entry
blanks, bearing the current
party standings, were prominently displayed at the Political
Science display. It is probable that a great many people
who foresaw little or no change
in thc standings were directlyt
influenced by the sample
Although no surveys were
taken of tiie different groups
that entered the contest, it is
certain that thc University students were the most eager lo
predict the results.
I found no signs that women
were more apathetic towards
the election than men. The
only group lhat did, on the
whole, shun the display were
faculty members. I assume
they did this either because
they were ignorant of or disinterested in the election, or else
because they were so sure of
the results they did not wish
to deprive more deserving, but
less gifted individuals, of the
Open Letter to the
University Administration.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
In January I had occasion
to go to Vancouver Metropolitan Health Centre for a smallpox vaccination. Not more
than five minutes elapsed from
the time I went in until I came
out. Today, I went to University Health Service for a
TABT shot, which involves relatively the same procedure as
smallpox vaccination. It took
me exactly one hour.
I cannot think of any institution with which I have associated that is so utterly and
obviously inefficient in procedure and uninterested in their
This service is a service
whk'h is given free to the students, so possibly Wc should
be tolerant toward it.
However, if we look at it
from the point of view that it
is a service we are paying for
directly as students, and indirectly as taxpayers, il becomes apparent that we arc
wastiqg our money.
One of the main advantages
of the Health Service (the
word "service'' was obviousjy
tacked on to the name by some
one with a sense of humor)
would at first seem to be ils
convenience to students while
on the campus. However, it
would be faster for a student
to catch a bus lo the closest
Metropolitan Health Centre
and return lo the campus (lie-
same way.. fu oilier words,
one of the main purposes of
Health  Service  is defeated.
The reason for this seems to
be the lack of interest by the
Health Service employees.
There is no semblance of order
whatsoever. You merely sit
and watch others who have
come   in   later   than   you   and
without an appointment, go in
front of you in the line. Unless
they happen to notice you, you
could conceivably sit there all
It is not totally uninteresting sitting there as they have
a varied selection of 1954 magazines with which you can
catch up on any news you happened to miss. When you get
tired .of reading about the
fighting in Korea you can listen to the running conversation behind the desk.
The secretaries or clerks or
whatever title they hold, appear to do no constructive
work at all, other than putting
on a good show for the 'sitters'.
There is a receptionist too,
who seems to think students
are better off standing at the
counter bleeding to death than
interrupting her conversation
with the secretaries. All in
all, it is an efficiency expert's
In an institution where, among other things, they teach
organization and efficiency, it
should be possible to put together a group who can do the
Job assigned to them. It also
should be possible for them to
do il pleasantly imd efficiently
with the utmost regard for
those with whom they are'
In conclusion, I would like
to draw to the attention of the
Administration the disgrace
which the Health Service is to
this Universily. To be reasonably fair to the taxpayers of
this Province and to the students at this University, I suggest thai you investigate and
correct the inefficiencies and
inadequacies so apparent in
the University Health Service.
Yours truly,
Health Association, Community Arts Council, United Nations Association, the Greater
Vancouver Health League, and
the John Howard Society. This
list, which is only a small sampling, is perhaps enough to indicate how many and how
varied are the efforts being
What is the role of the University in this field?
How does its' program fit
into the many services already
The university's Jobs might
be summarized under five
1. The university should restrict itself to complex subjects. We offer evening classes in such areas as philosophy,
literature, creative writing,
the atom, and comparative religion. We do not offer typing
and how to make curtains, and
woodworking. The latter are
perfectly good and legitimate
evening class subjects, but
there are other agencies in a'
better position to give them.
By the same token, we organize short courses on human
relations and international relations. Our Job in a sense is
the difficult.
2. The university should be
a pioneer. It should be willing to experiment, to conduct
the pilot study. In doing this
it may at times seem to ignore
the first point above, since it
will be necessary to deal with
subjects that involve elementary concepts. Some of these
courses will, after being developed, be turned over to
other agencies for continuation. This process has taken
place recently in the case of a
lumber retailing course and
two in lhc field of family relationships. We are currently
experimenting with a scries of
study-discussion courses in the
liberal arts, which may or may
not survive in their present
3. The university should
train leaders. This point is
closely related to thc first and
arises naturally out of the traditional function of the university. II implies a broad base
of leadership al every level of
.society and in every sphere of
activity. And so wo participate in the training of District
Agriculturists, Leaders of community drama groups, managers of co-operatives, training
directors in industry and the
key people in a great range of

Quibbling,   Shortsighted,   Unproductive"
Editor, The  Varsity
University of Toronto
(Editor's Note—Dealing
as it does with the disproportionate amounts of
time student officers spend
at their "duties," we felt
that the following article
by Mike Cassidy from the
University of Toronto
"Varsity," of which he is
editor, would be quite
timely, in view of the fact
that final exam timetables
have just been posted.)
I am a student politician.
Because of my job, I've been
forced to be one. I'm ashamed
of the fact,
For two years off and on I've
been one of the two dozen or
so members of the Sludenis'
Administrative1 Council, Ihe
body thai meets and represents
all  studenls   twice  a   month.
Each member of thc SAC is;
a student  politician  Ion.
Tn a minor way I've been in
some   courageous   decisions   	
as when SAC decided In change
its buk-show and  on  .some
belated ones, as Iho Hungarian
Aid campaign.
I've also seen lhc council
guilty of meddling, of petty
bickering, of shortsightedness
and of falling down on the job.
Now other studenl. bodies
exist in every college and facul
ty and most of the residences.
Each of the 300 or so students
in this more petty form of government is a student politician.
Lower still, come the year
executives and other supernu-
marics and members of committees. Thcs£ denizens of tiie
university's organization jungle
probably number another 300.
Each of them is a student
I hope some day they'll all
be ashamed of the role they
played in campus life.
Now because I'm appointed
and don't represent any group
on the campus I can't vole in
lhe SAC. I can jusl, talk. And
talk is the addiction of the
sludenl politician.
lie or we ----- is addicted to
meetings, loo. He sits endlessly
and querulously over petty do-
tails, he quibbles, bul, rarely
shouts, lie believes in demo
cracy, talking Ihings oul, aud
in committees. Ho likes to try
for a consensus, lie sits, and is
calloused behind, lie talks, and
is calloused in his throat. Ue
fries lo think, and finds his
brain  is hardened,
It's hardened because Ihe life
of a student politician is a
deadening one one lhal any
serious sludenl coming; lo this
universily would want, lo avoid,
and one lhal any student vvith
sense when he enters university does avoid.
There is no future in the
student politician's campus
career, for it, inevitably ends
when he enters the cold world.
Rewards are few unless his
ambition is for power over his
fellow men. Rewards of the
radical with social or intellectual ideas he wishes to put
into practice are even fewer,
for he is frustrated at every
turn. Only if he gives in can
he become one of the group—
but then he loses his integrity.
The student government Ls
parasitic rather than creative,
unorganized rather than productive, and subverts the true
purpose for which its members -  the student politicians
■-- should have conic to university.
The student politician meets
with his peers lo form or dissolve committees when lie
should be reading or learning
or listening.
Instead of searching out great
talk and ideas he succumbs to
hiilllieadediiess, or tries to push
through it.
Revision and caution are his
walcliwords, rather than creative thought and action. Personality and detail is apt to
obscure principle in his discussion.
What he does create is as
unproductive and deadening as
the work he undertakes.
To what purpose are his fool-
ball trains? His vast efforts to
make a few dollars for charily?
His dances? His organizations?
His liason committees? His
bands? His newspapers, in fact,
which he believes should exist
mainly to support his other
activities? To what purpose?
Well, the only one conceivable
is the dilution of his and others
true role as students.
During his career the studenl
politician may spend from a
few hours a term to hours every
day on the duties of his career,
But docs it aid himself? No, for
the heavy work involved is to
little end, II is a training in
technique rather than in substance1. He leaves university lo
fit into organization society,
ready with Ihe tools of manipulation, bul unready with anything to back Ihem up.
Does Iks- aid the university,
then? Again the answer i.s no.
His works bear such little
fruit. Organization squabbles
and passive recreation have lie-
come the studenls' responsibility, for the universily recognizes they have no reason to
be hero. Young as he is, the
student politician doesn't recognize  this  and  enters   the   fray
I just hope lie realizes how
tatered he looks when he comes
out again, after one or three
or four years.
I feel that way now. There's
something dirty about the studenl politician part of my life
here. It should never have occurred on a universily campus.
Some years ago I stood for a
first-year executive posilion
and lost. I was young, I was
green, I thought I had ideas,
and I thought I could do something with them. That loss was
lucky. It was a step away from
the black hole of student
Black hole, I say, because
the motives of the student
politicians here or anywhere
else arcs obscure. A club has a
purpose, its executive is, or
should be, devoted to. A political parly is in Ihe same class,
and so is a religious organization. But lhe students' council
and its lesser imitator's exist
solely to promote student activities and interest   wil lion I. concern a.s lo whal these
are worth. Service, good or
bad,  is their cry,
Because of my personal beliefs in the good this paper can
do, the service il. can provide,
and because my interest in the
vocational   training,   il,   has   lo

Department's Role
(Continued from Page 2)
4. The university should
collaborate with and bring
about co-ordination amongst
the many other agencies active
in the field of adult education.
It can take advantage of its
neutral or disinterested position to serve as a meeting
ground for a great range of
groups. For this reason we
have played an active part in
bringing into being the B.C.
Adult Education Council, a
clearing house for ideas and
programs. Management and
labour come together to participate in human relationship
workshops. Government and
voluntary agencies sit down to
discuss citizenship affairs or
the problems of the aging. The
university enjoys a reputation
(not always altogether deserved) of having no axe to grind.
5. The university should
master adult education as a
field of knowledge. This involves several responsibilities,
including those of carrying on
research and leaching in this
field. But as far as Extension
is concerned, it means two
olher things.
First, the educational program conducted by the Extension Department must be a
good one, one which is in
keeping with what is known
about how and why adulls
learn. i
Secondly, it means lhat the ;
university    must   imparl   this
knowledge,    by   all   available-
means, to those in lhc province \
who are teaching adulls.    For j
this reason we are called upon ;
to lake- part   in a great, variety
of   courses   which   include   the
teaching of adults in  Iho curriculum,   and   we   are   consulted
in the planning of many more.
In this field, as in so many i
others ,lhe citizens of British i
Columbia look lo their Uni- [
versity for leadership and !

On Top
In Finals
In a display of listless, tiresome, and poorly played basketball last night, UBC lost their
third game to fall behind the
Eilers in the B.C. Senior Basketball finals.
Leading most of the, game,
the Eilers ceme up with a 72-62
win to take the lead in the
series, three games to two.
UBC's passing gave the victors many opportunities to take
advantage of the three-man
press. If the ball was not
hawked by an opponent, then
UBC would be throwing into
the hands of an Eiler player.
UBC took the lead in the earlier stage of the contest.
In the first quarter the passing and ball playing in general
was the best displayed throughout the remainder of the night.
UBC was faster in moving the
ball up the court than they have
been in previous fixtures. But
the steam was soon lacking in
UBC's drives.
As UBC lost their drive the
floor action decreased in interest. Eilcvs pulled away from
the Birds and were never in
danger of losing the lead. At
the quarter, Eilers were ahead
18-14 and by half-time had ran
their margin to a 35-28 score.
UBC came to life once in
awhile in the final half and had
drawn to within 10 points at
the third quarter.
Failing in the Bird's offensive attack was the needed play-
making from the guards, but
both Ed Wild and Ken Winslade
seemed to have an off-night as
each had trouble in passing accurate and snappy passes.
Wild and Winslade did have
a successful game when it came
to shooting. Wild finished the
evening with 10 points.
Leading the Eiler's strong attack was Big John McLeod.
UBC players had their work cut
out for them when they tried to
check the tall centre. McLeod
collected 27 points for the winners many of which were
scored on the foul line,
Lance Stephens was high for
the Birds with 12 points.

Wallabies Swamp Birds 31-6 [BLOCKS AWARDED
The Fourth Australian Wallabies made no mistake yesterday at Varsity  Stadium.
They kicked, ran, shoved, and backed  up   like  an  international   team   lo  swamp   the
UBC Thunderbirds 31-6.
However, as the 4,000 fans
will verify, the score did not
give an accurate description of
the game.
Again and again the Birds
came back after Wallaby scores.
On at least three occasions they
were inches away from the Aussie's line only to have their
opponents cover defense hold
From the opening kickoff this
was a different team from the
one that lost to the B.C, All-
Harvey scored first from five
yards out as he ran the blind
side  to go over in the corner.
Two minutes later it was 6-0
as Jim Lenehan booted a 30-
yard penalty goal.
Back came UBC with clever
faking by centres Peter Tynan
and Paddy Sloan bringing the
crowd to its feet as the University looked close to scoring. But
the Australians showed their ex-
celent backing-up ability as Ken
Yantz bulled over from eight
yards after a teammate had
blocked Garry Sinclair's clearing kick.
Again the Varsity came back
only to have Lenehan split the
uprights on another penalty goal
to make it 14-0. •
UBC supporters cheered as
Gerry McGavin put his team on
the scoreboard with a 37-yard
penalty kick, only to have the
educated Lenehan toe reply
with the same.
The Thunderbird's only try
of the game came three minutes
from half time.
From a five-yard scrum in
theAussie's half, Malcolm MacKay made the strike, Hugh
Barker fed Teddy Hunt with
one of his excellent passes and
the star five-eighths was off.
He slashed through the Wall-
abie cover defense, and when
tackled, sent an overhead pass
lo the wing where Garry Sinclair, in quickly from his fullback position, scooped it up to
dive over in the corner. Mc-
Gavin's convert attempt was

rather than coming from set.
plays, '
The Varsity backs ran well
but saw little of the ball —
their only chance to make ground
was by capitalizing on their opponents mistakes.
The second half was much like
the first. Des Connor, Lenehan,
and   Mel   Hughes   crossed   the
UBC line for tries, while Harvey dropped a goal and added
a convert.
The UBC forwards fought
back valiantly but to no avail.
The Wallabies were just bigger
and faster.

Girls Play
In Tourney
A province-wide high school
girls' basketball tournament will
take place in the Women's Gym
this weekend.
The tournament had run from
1948 to 1955 and then lapsed
two years for lack of a sponsor.
Women's Athletic Association
undertook its management this
year, in conjunction with the
School of Physical Education.
Eight teams, all winners Of
preliminary rounds, will take
part. Mission High School, 1955
winner, will be represented, as
well as Abbosford, Rossland,
Salmon Arm, Ladysmith, Mt.
Newton, and John Oliver and
Kitsilano High Schools of Vancouver.
The trophy has been donated
by the B.C. Department of Education, P h y s i c a I Education
First-round games will lake
place Friday. Ladysmith and
Salmon Arm will meet at 2 p.m.
Kitsilano and Mission at 3:30,

3 p.m. Finals will be at 8:30
p.m., preceded by consolation
finals at 7 p.m.
This year Coach Frank Gnup
is faced with the rather pleasant problem of lots of depth, at
every position. As a result,
Gnup will split up his squad
into two teams of equal strength
for this weekends twin bill.
Typical of this depth is at the
third base spot. Those competing for the hot corner position
are Walt Bianco, Ken Grant
and George Sarich.
Last year's third-sacker, Skip-
py Montgomery will be out with
the team just as soon as the
basketball season is over.
Gnup's squad has a total of
19 games scheduled this year
with 11 of them coming in May.
Their Evergreen Conference
play gets under way on April
4th and 5th, when the Birds
tangle with Western Washington Vikings.
On the big swing through
Washington in May, Coach
Gnup, as well as having his
squad play conference rivals, is
attempting to get in tilte with
University of Washington and
Seattle University.
The Awards Banquet will be held on Wednesday, March
20, in Brock Hall starting at 6:30.
All present Big Block holders are invited and all this
year's award winners, both big and small block, should be
present to receive their awards.
Tickets are free with an extra one available for a wife
or girl friend but must be picked up in advance from the
Secretary in the Men's Gym.   iTRACK AND FIELD
