Alliance In Search Of A Purpose
"NATO is an alliance in
search of a purpose," stateci
Ronald Ritchie on Friday,
Sponsored bv the UN Club,
Mr. Ritchie spoke on "NATO,
the problems of a military alliance,"
There   are     three     pressing
according    to    Mr.
problem   of  military
1. Tike
2. The problem of how to
handle political relations with
3. The problem in reconciling the divergent interests of
its members outside Western
Europe i:i such a way as to not
weaken its unity.
In dealing with NATO strategy, there were many early
political problems. Russia was
a menace to Western Europe
who was weak, disorganized
and unconfident, But, Western   Europe   has   increased   in
political stability, economic
strength and has gained a feeling of indopenedence.
N ATO was formed as a
purely defensive alliance. This
stage elided in 1953 with the
advance ol atomic power. Will
the creation of strong forces in
Europe bring out nuclear war-
fa re '•
To handle political relations
with Russia, a unified NATO
approach on the political level
is needed, Ritchie said. But
tiiis has not worked out as
The smaller nations do not
want the larger ones speaking
for them. And Dulles is too
self-righteous, self-opinionated
and so inflexible that he cannot see th.e other people's
point of view.
To reconcile tne interests of
its own members outside Western Europe with each other
and with the Western World
as a whole 'e.g. with France,
Tunisia and Algeria1, NATO
finds itself involved in a great,
many things which have nothing to clo with military alliance. These problepis. if solved, will determine the fate of
the Western World.
Numerous questions were
asked Mr. Ritchie:
1. Would NATO expand into an economic alliance as well
as a military one'.'
No. The natural lines of
flow are not mainly economic.
2. What sort of problems
would arise if France were to
be excluded from NATO's1

and economy of Western Europe,

No. Portugal is. But if the
U.S. had decided, it would be.
4. Do you honestly feel that
Dulles is overpowering the
smaller members?
Well, the U.S. certainly
bears the major share of responsibility.
5. You assume that France
and Britain are not working in
the best interest in the alliance,
but are merely defending

they are merely duplicating

The Clubs Want
Their Rights -
But What Of Ours?
The Ubyssey has been subjected to much criticism over
the last few days with regard to its stand on the Students'
Council motion demanding that the paper print a two-
column feature section every day publicizing club activities.
Several critics have pointed out—unfairly, we think-
that the amount of space we used in last Thursday's Ubyssey
in outlining our stand seems to disprove our argument that
we have no extra space to give to clubs,
Yet, vve  are glad, in  a  way,  to receive  this  particular
criticism, because it brings into focus what we consider to be
the real issue in the controversy.
And that is that vve feel Council's motion is a dangerous infringement of editorial freedom.
Editorial freedom—freedom of the press, if you like—
is freedom of editors of newspapers to publish what they see
fit to publish and not to publish what  they see fit  not  to
We freely admit that we abuse this freedom occasionally, but we submit that we are only human and as error-
prone as anybody else.
We are not at all trying to suppress the extra-curricular
life of this campus. All year long we have given scads of
publicity to clubs, much more than they will get from the
two columns Council demands they should have.
There i.s a clause in the AMS Constitution (or Code,
we forget which) that states that The Ubyssey must give
advance publicity through its columns to UBC students of
AMS functions, as directed by the AMS Public Relations
Officer, who shall be an ex-officio member of the Editorial
Now surely if we had been falling down on the job, we
would have heard so from the AMS PRO. But though he is
an ex-officio member of the Editorial Board of tho Ubyssey,*
the AMS PRO lias not attended the weekly meeting of this
body once in the past two years,
This being the case, wo resent Students' Council's sudden invasion of our editorial freedom,
We are held responsible for what is printed in The
Ubyssey, and for the manner of its presentation, and for the
general appearance of the paper (which wo feel will be
greatly detracted from hy the presence of a two-column
act for UCC),
And we refuse to be held responsible for a paper which
carries material over which we do not have ultimate, unrestricted control,
UBC Graduates Seek
Further Education
Director, Department of
University Extension
Was Mozart, the child prodigy, educated at the age of
eight? Is the young man who
won the $64,000 question on
the topic of space travel, educated? Will the 1,500 UBC
graduates of 1958 leave the
campus as educated men and
To all these questions, my
answer is an emphatic NO.
One does not get an education
by studying a few years, no
matter how bright the student.
Education is a life-long challenge and struggle to train,
develop and enrich one's mental and physical capacities to
the maximum.
Many a student passes
through the halls of learning
with very little educational
paint left on him. This is particularly true in cases where
he has avoided selecting liberal
arts courses wherever possible
and confined his studies mainly to training courses. Of what
use, then, is a student's stay at
a university in terms of obtaining an education? 1 think of
his university sojourn simply
as a short period of initiation,
having his curiosity aroused
ior more knowledge and ultimate wisdom, learning where
to locate sources for continuing education, acquiring a taste
which can distinguish the first-
rate from the common-rate.
If the graduate has been assisted to develop a disciplined
mind, then the University has
started him off on the road to
an education. A disciplined
mind is the product of hard
work in which the ingredients
are about 5% inspiration and
95% perspiration. Emerson
has a word for it: "God offers
every man the choice between
truth and repose; take which
you prefer, you can never have
If we accept this premise for
an education, the problem then
is how to provide for life-long
learning. What hapens after
school and university now becomes far more important than
what happened during school
and university days. This applies to the student in the professions as it does to the liberal
arts major. The successful
practicing physician, the geo-
physicist, the horticulturist,
the teacher or the social
worker all have learned the
discipline   of  furthering  their
education, whether on their
own, through their professional organizations or through
continuing university extension courses. But successful
living goes far beyond professional competency. A 'full life'
demands of the individual that
he constantly unlearn and re-
learn facts, for his opinions are
only as good as his facts. It
calls for a sensitive awareness
of the social an economic scene
about him and a willingness to
improve this environment. It
invites him to acquire a discriminating appreciation of,
and an interest to experiment
creatively with one or more of
the art forms. It pre-supposes
that the college graduate has
learned, in a sense, to attend
a university as long as he lives,
be it through a continuing use
of the library, through living-
room or lecture hall courses in
the liberal arts, or in other
An important difference between youth and adult years of
study is that out-of-school
learning will be of the student's own choosing. He is no
longer one of a captive audience; his decision to apply
himself rests entirely on his
Tuum est constituere.
Rugby Choice
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
A number of students who
have shown an interest in and
an appreciation of the brand
of rugby played by our Thunderbird XV have been disturbed by the selection of the B.C.
XV which is to meet the Wallabies on Saturday.
They feel that a great injustice has been done to UBC by
the placing of only two of its
players on the first B.C. XV.
These two, Ted Hunt and Gerry
McGavin, are outstanding,
however, it is felt that the selectors erred in stopping where
they did.
The Thunderbird XV represents at least 75 active rugger
players on this campus. Wc
have a team which has proven
itself over the last two years
by beating every team of
standing on the coast.
The final trial match was
held last Saturday. The Thunderbird players participating
competed in their fourth game
in ten days. The previous three
games were played in California against Californians who
are not unknown for the vigor
with which they pursue the
ball and their opponents, This
factor should have been considered  by the selectors.
Players such as Sinclair, Tynan and Sloan, who have been
tutored for the last two years
by Max Howell and who have
proved themselves outstanding, should not have been ignored by the selectors.
Perhaps the selectors made
their choice on a regional basis.
This is often the case, however it would appear unjust
on the grounds that players
who would contribute more
towards a winning team are
ignored in order that various
Clubs may be rewarded. It is
remarkable thai such teams
with so many "outstanding"
players invariably fair rather
poorly  at     tne    hands  of   the
The selectors failure to place
the UBC captain and scrum-
leader, Derek Vallis, on the
team for the coming Saturday
is ridiculous. For six years
Vallis has proven himself to
be the outstanding forward to
play for the Thunderbirds. He
is marked by all opposition as
the player to 'neutralize' in
order to dominate the Varsity
pack. Surely this is proof of
his worth to any team.
In conclusion it can only be
hoped that the Thunderbirds
will acquit themselves well
against the Wallabies this coming Thursday and prove to the
selectors that they are worth
far more consideration than
has been given them.
Law I.
Moral Advancement
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
The only rational and satisfactory rebuttal which you
have made to the UCC Investigation Committee's charge of
failing to grant adequate coverage to club-sponsored events,
is a lack of available space.
The validity of your rebuttal however, was somewhat
shattered again last Thursday
when you used more than two
thirds of the front page plus
a considerable portion page to
point out that you were against Students' Council decision to grant a 2-eo}umn features section (out of a total of
28 columns) for club-sponsored
Tiie Clubs on thfs campus
provide a program of even Is
that are of interest to a large
cross section of tiie student
body and there i.s no doubt sin
my mind that they do contribute in many ways to lhe cultural and moral advancement
of the University community.
These clubs    have    tried in
vain to arrive at a working arrangement with Publications.
Now they have come forth
with a concrete proposal — a
two-column feature section in
the Ubyssey.
An Editor under these conditions has two courses of action,
(A) to consider the request and
either accept it or offer some
modification; or (B) to portray
the proposal with an attempt
to make it look ridiculous in
the eyes of the reader, in order
to influence the student vote
at the forthcoming general
Unfortunately you chose the
latter course, the lazy way out.
But what provoked the writing of this letter was the manner in which you distorted the
facts in the Thursday edition
of the Ubyssey, by maintaining
that the UCC request would
turn the whole Ubyssey info a
Bulletin Board. Then, not
satisfied with this dishonest
attack you struck the blow below the belt by publishing the
UCC answer to your insults
with a short biased editorial
You have every right as editor to criticize, editorialize or
take a stand on any issue, but
lot's not insult the intelligence
of the students on this campus
by attempting to make up their
minds on an issue without giving both sides a fair hearing.
Yours very truly,
Law III.

Hayakawa On
Mass Media
Listening is as important
as speaking for successful communication, said semantics expert Dr. S. I. Hayakawa at a
meeting last Friday at the University of Washington.»
Dr. Hayakawa spoke on the
topic "Success and Failure in
Communication." "We interpret
all things in terms of our own
background and experience." he
pointed out that because of this
all persons interpret things differently, but still blame the
other person when a message is
perceived differently than it is
intended. Experience has not
seemed to teach people to communicate better.
"By assuming that the other
person knows something you
don't know, and listening evalu-
atively, both communicating
sides will emerge as wiser beings," and adding that this is
progress in communication.

Professor Conway, Department of History, asked Pearkes
if there was any military rern
son why Canada would not
support the establishment of a
UN  permanent  force,
"I can see no reason why
Canada would not support such
a force if it were established,"
replied Pearkes.
"May I then enquire as to
your reaction to your colleague,
Mr. Smith s statement, that
Canada would not support such
force," asked Conway.
"You asked me for military
reasons and I can see no military reasons why Canada would

Don Faris, member of the
CCF Club asked the defence
minister if the Conservative
government had been able to
eliminate some of the extravagances and inefficiency of the
former government's defence
policy, to which the Tories had
drawn attention when they were
members of the Opposition.

Women Eliminated
From Hockey Finals
The hopes of the Varsity hockey team of entering
Association were crushed Saturday when the team was
feated 2-0 by Ex-Brit.
Varsity's usual asset, their
speed, was missing while Brits
displayed both speed and experience. The winners, always on
the offence, held a definite edge
throughout .the game.
Rene MacKay scored both
gt>als, the first came just as the
final whistle blew to end the
first half. She scored again
about half way through the second period. Both goals were
well-placed and Varsity goalie,
Joan Lennox, did not have a
chance of saving them.
Outstanding players for the
Varsity team were captain Char
Warren and halfback Pat Smith.

Birds Second Win Ties Up Series
Birds Fall
Foul Prone
Fouling out of tight games
has proven once again to be an
important factor in the .Thun-
derbird's losses in their efforts
to win in the B. C. Senior 'A'
Basketball finals.
Thursday night the Birds
dropped a 71-62 encounter with
the Eiler's Jewellers. The Eilers
now lead the best of seven series two games to one.
The Eilers' line of Marv Berg,
Peter Mullins and John McLeod
soon began to contact and ran
the Eilers up the score sheet
and put them in a 22-12 lead at
the quarter mark.
At the half the Eilers were
in command with a 40-31 edge.
Poor shooting and jittery
playing on the part of the Birds
gave the Eilers the needed openings for baskets.
With six minutes left in the
game, Lyall Levy was fouled
out. High scoring Lance Stephens fouled out with two minutes left. The Eilers made good
use of the UBC fouls as they
scored nine foul shots in 14
attempts in the final quarter.
Peter Mullins, leading the
Eilers' driving power, also lead
the scoring for the evening with
24 points,

The result of the game may   ALL OUT EFFORT
have    a    strong    bearing    on

set up both tries—-especially

Birds Hold Eilers
For Close 67-65 Win
Holding back a last minute onslaught,  UBC  Thunderbirds managed to win the fourth game of the B.C. Senior
Basketball Final to tie the series at two games apiece.
Last night, the Birds stopped
Eilers by a score of 67-65 in a
close finish.
The game was marred by inconsistent     refereeing      which
slowed up the match.
Ed Pederson, making his
first appearance in the starting five, played a steady game
for the victors. Pederson was
a standout on both back boards
and also collected 10 points.
The opening basket was
scored by Ken Winslade on one
of his speedy drives for the
hoop. Peter Mullins made it
a two-all tie at the 18 minute
mark. Scoring almost basket
for basket, the 'Birds fought
to a first quarter lead of 18-17.
Going into the second quarter, Winslade was clicking on
most of his shots as were his
teammates, but then UBC began to fall apart on the offensive drives in the latter stage
of the half,
The Birds blew an eiglrt-
point lead with only a few minutes  left.   Logge   Tait  put  the
ing   for   their   second   straight
Steadiness and a few breaks
put the Birds on the score card
again as the starting five began to hit.
With four and a half minutes
remaining in the game, UBC
took a six-point lead. Both
teams scored point for point
and with two minutes remaining, the Birds still led by six
points with a 65-59 score.
Barry Drummond was fouled
out at the 1:33 mark. Eilers
made use of various fouls to
come within four points of the
leaders. A steal by the Eiler's
guard put the score at 67-65 in
favour of the Birds.
The Birds held onto the ball
for the remaining seconds to
hold off the Eilers an to take
the close two point victory.
Barry Drummond was high
scorer for UBC with 16 points.
He was followed by Ed Wild
who collected 15, Winslade
gathered   12  points,
The fifth game of the series

But the UBC quintette held together and managed to score

stay in the lead at half time,
Wild was leading the Birds
in points at the half with 10.
Winslade had gathered 9
Working a pattern of passing across the top of the key,
the Birds started rolling ahead
on points using fast jump shots,
By the 16:23 mark of the final
half, the Birds were ahead 43-
Failing to pick up the odd
man under the basket and losing rebounds put the Birds into
trouble as the Eilers came on
strong to close a nine point
At the three quarter time,
UBC's margin was cut clown to
two  baskets as they led 53-49.
Playing a hot then cold
type of basketball, made the
game a much looser brand of
ball. Neither team could use
this  to  their advantage.
UBC could not settle down

play. Taking desperate shots
and showing little organization,

Varsity Ties
Final Game
As a result of Saturday Warren Cup men's grass hockey
competition, Varsity can now do
no worse than end the season in
a tie for first place.
Varsity battled India to a 0-0
draw at Brockton Point in their
last regular season game. However, India has to replay a contest with Cardinals to complete
its schedule.
If India could manage to win
in this latter game they would
be in a first place tie with the
Varsity squad,
In other Saturday games the
scores showed UBC Blues losing
2-0 to Crusaders, while Blackbirds whipped UBC Golds 3-1.
Dave Epp was the lone scorer
for Golds,
