AWS-WAA sponsored pep rally.
Highlight of the noon-hour's
entertainment was an allegory
concerning two cars; Morris and
his- wife Mercedes (miade from
one o_f his springs, he explained).
The audience, pre-warned to
put on its "imagining caps,"
learned of Morris and Mercedes'
flight from the Garden of Indianapolis arid their subsequent reunion engineered by the great
god Ford.
Football coach Frank Gnup
starred as Ford, while Bob Hind-
march and Fran Charkow played 'husband and wife.
"UBC's answer to the Kingston Trio," Professor A. Cox of
the Psychology Department,
entertained with three folk
songs: "The Black Fly," Football Crazy," and "Davie Faugh."
A young girls from the PE department demonstrated how the
female athletes on the campus
arrange their make-up to make
the most effective job of snaring their male counterparts.
Also   on   the   program   were
eight "cheerleaders" who opened
the   show   by   singing   "Doing
I What Comes Natchurly."
Russian Comment
Causes Walk-Out
QUEBEC (CUP)—Prof Leon
Dion and five members of the
audience walked out of a heated
panel discussion involving four
visiting Soviet students at Laval
University last Thursday.
The incident followed a comment by Alexei Golubev, head
of the Russian delegation, that
the panel discussion was being
held as part of a cultural exchange program and he thought
a speech by Dion had wasted an
hour of everyone's time,
Dion and five spectators left
the hall.
Dion's speech had discusseo
the differences between Communism and Democracy.
A n unidentified spectator
questioned whether three of the
Soviet delegates were really students.
The Russians replied that students, graduates, graduate students and all Russian society are
equal.
When asked what organization
he represented, the spectator replied, "The Laval Alumni" and
walked out of the hall.
The Soviet students will visit
UBC at the end of November.
Riot Breaks Out
Following Queens-
Varsity Ball Game
By BILL MUSGROBE
Varsity  Reporter
Toronto (CUP) Oct. 31 —Attempts by Queen's University
students to capture the goalposts, before the final whistle at
Varsity Stadium, University of
Toronto, touched off a riot in
which 17 were injured.
The Varsity, U of T's student
newspaper, reported that none
of the 17 students was seriously
injured.
The riot started when Queen's
students attempted to bring
down the last upright at t h e
south end if the field after the
rest of the goal posts had been
wrecked.
Prior to the game both Metro
and campus police had been
very much in evidence as they
searched for bottles but when
the riot started they were not
to toe seen, The Varsity reported.
One or two who were around
stood by as interested spectators.
Two persons attempted to
scale the uprights but the attempts ended when they lost
their pants, shoes, and other
clothing.
Another person suffered injuries, which, coupled with the
damage he incurred when hit
with the contents of a bottle
earlier in the afternoon, rendered him unconscious.
The disorder calmed down
when one of the injured participants was taken from the field
on a stretcher.
The fight lasted for more than
half an hour.

The Red China issue did not
pass this year, Winch said, be,-
cause 17 new African nations did
not vote.
"I am positive they will not
abstain next year," he said.
DISARMAMENT
Winch criticized Canada for
attempting to lead disarmament
plans, while at the same time
building Bomarc missile sites.
He said he was very disappointed by the attitudes and
actions displayed by certain delegates to the U.N.
Winch said he was shocked
"to see a world statesman try to
bring the UN into disrepute, to
heckle viciously, and wave his
shoe at the president of the
United Nations.
"It was disheartening and
frightening to realize that there
are people in the world who
would do such things."
Winch refuted as soviet propaganda Kruschev's desire for
disarmament, and pointed to the
incident at the Geneva summit
conference, where the Russian,
leader walked out.
I listened day after day to
countries with their hearts bleeding for the displaced and undernourished people of this world.".
"I listened while the Eastern
block shed Crocodile tears but
when it came to an estimate of
what it would cost to help these
people the Soviets would pay
nothing," he aid.

LEST WE FORGET
Friday is Remembrance Day. This is the day when we
pause briefly to mourn the millions who fell in the two
great wars.
It is also a day when we should remember the horrors
of war. It is a day when we should consider ways of ensuring that such holocausts never reoccur.
Finding a permanent peace must be the primary quest
of man. Before this goal, all other aims should fade into
insignificance
It is the great task of our generation "to prevent nuclear
war. We must achieve the understanding necessary to
create a world at peace. Page 2

As it Could Look From Moscow
After listening for months to professors and politicians
bemoaning "the decline of the United States"—especially
in relation to the Soviet Union—we became curious about
hew the situation looked from Moscow. If Mr. Khrushchev's
opponents at home were free to speak, their estimate would
run somwhat along the following lines. We cannot vouch
for its accuracy but sources outside the curtain support the
main points: -    i
"The Khrushchev record in foreign policy is a dismal
one of defeat and decline. Soviet prestige is slipping badly.
There is no real leadership. So-called peaceful co-existence
1   is a snare and delusion. Nikita bounces around, making
a clown of himself for the capitalists' amusement.
"It is nearly two years since he issued an ultimation
on Berlin. His bluff was called. So he smiled and had a
vacation in America. He got a lot of publicity but didn't
really soften up the Americans.
"He played for a summit conference and then found
the capitalists weren't  going to give  him  anything.  He
• bungled the U-2 incident. He made the humiliating con-
• fession that we had known about the American flights for
many months and had been unable to stop them.
"In blowing up the summit at Paris, he went to such
' extremes as to alienate even the neutrals. As a result he
.*   had to back down on .Berlin again and was beaten in the
United Nations on his U-2 claim.
! "Indeed, the record in the UN  is one defeat after
another. The RB-47 business only showed that our dear
,    comrade was lying before the world. In the Congo he over-
'   played the Communist hand and got us bounced out. Also
rebuked in the UN by 70 nations, led by the Afro-Asian
Hoc which we have so carefully cultivated. His attack on
Hammarskjold   and   his   boorishness   in   this   Assembly
alienated neutrals and embarrassed friends, isolating Soviet
policy. By his blundering bombast he has brought ridicule
on himself arid humiliation on the Soviet Union. Compared
with Eisenhower and MacMillan—or  even that apostate
Tito—his performance was pitiful.
"The Kremlin's effort to get rid of American bases
around our borders has failed and we are vulnerable. Our
chances of making a successful surprise attack have been
frittered away for peaceful co-existence. Nikita is planning
to cut our army just when the Americans are developing
more nuclear submarines and missiles.
"Even iri space, where we had an advantage, Khrushchev policies have allowed the Americans to make most of
the news. Their satellites far outnumber ours and appeal
to the popular desire for peaceful and practical scientific
advances. Nikita's clumsy efforts in personal diplomacy
have overshadowed by Eisenhower's great successes—
especially with the people—in his trips to Asia, the Middle
]£ast and Latin America. The American has projected the
image of the sincere peacemaker.
"The  soft-on-capitalism policy has  brought  lowered
prestige abroad and new dangers at home. Anti-Communist
ideas are freely infiltrating our system. Our position has
been  weakened  in one nation   after   another.   We  have
become involved   in   a   needless   and  dangerous   doctrin-
. al-dispute with .China, which holds/ to the true line.
VT > I-'Ltjok St. our losses—the areas where we had gained
vfwrat footing or were making real progress and where the
. -capitalists .have thrown  us out   or  reversed   the trend;
Burma, Malaya, Indonesia, Iraq. Nasser and various others
accept our aid and try to play us off against the capitalists
but outlaw domestic Communists or make anti-Communist
speeches.
"A host of Americans are swallowing statistics showing
our growth rate double theirs. But some of our own economists have exposed the doubt-counting in our figures.
The fact is that with the relaxations of peaceful co-existence
the Americans will probably go farther ahead. For they
are more efficient now, man for man, are increasing their
efficiency more rapidly and are gaining population faster.
In sum, under present leadership we are growing weaker,
America stronger."
Is this a jaundiced view , colored by anti-Khrushchev
partisanship? Possibly. Yet it is far nearer an objective
picture than is the view of America's calamity chorus of
professional politicians  and political professors.

Page 6, November 3 edition.
In the history of mankind
there have been numerous incidents which individuals have
been convicted for the action
of others. This is one of them.
Many would have us hanged,
but surely not, "The Ubyssey"!
Although we take pride in
our proficient technique of
Water-Fighting, we, however,
do not take credit for lighting
a torch to two so called crosses,
or singing, "Onward Christian
Soldiers", a song neither familiar to our choral singers, nor
recognized as one of our spiritual hymns.
If  you are  confronted  with
the    problem    of    having    too
much available printing space,
I  recommend  that you either
clutter  it  with  advertisement,

Dear Sir:
A CHEER FOR THE ENGINEERS!
We hope the tim$ will come
when everyone will finally
realize that U.B.C. would be
nothing without our glorious
Engineers. This group is the
last hope in Campus for organized mayhem.
During the Homecoming
Queen Contest, the Engineers
displayed an excellent example
of originality when Miss Jane
Spratt was carried in by a company of neatly-dressed Redshirts. The crowning of Miss
Engineering as Homecoming
Queen is only more evidence of
the organization and spirit of
the E.U.S. Each year the engineers give excellent support for
the various blood-drives and
charitable organizations that
come to U.B.C. for help.
We don't expect much from
the Frosh, but we would like to
hear cheers instead of hisses
from the rest of the campus
when the Redshirts are in
action. Three Artsmen who
have seen the light.

Editor,

Dear Sir:
I was delighted to see in
your edition of November 3rd
a very warm tribute to Dean
Walter Gage. I know better
than most the contribution that
Dean Gage has made to this
University and particularly to
its students.
I    would    like    to    endorse
everything   that   was   written
about him in Mr. Burke's letter  and  to  assure  Mr.   Burke
and the student body that the
University   administration,   including the Board of Governors and Senate, and the Alumni
too,  all have the  same  warm
feelings   of  gratitude   and   respect for what Dean Gage has
done and is doing.
With all good wishes,
Yours sincerely,

FIVE-THIRTY CLUB
By FRED FLETCHER
It's taken a long time, but your intrepid reporter has
finally wandered back to the oid stand.
Things look at little different to him now; not at all
like they did in October, 1959, when he began grinding out
this column.
At that time, he was a sort of objective observer. But
he soon learned. He learned that everything council does
must be looked at with a jaundiced eye (or two).
After all, somebody has to make sure they don't run
the campus strictly in their own interests.
Last year, this reporter would not have hesitated to
attack the editor of The Ubyssey, who sat there blue-
blazered and black-robed like the rest of them.
But, things have changed. Now your reporter would
never think of criticizing the editor.
Now your reporter sits there in his black robe, constantly getting embroiled in discussion, forgetting to take
notes, and falling prey to all the other diseases that plague
an observer who gets involved.
So, you will have to forgive any slight bias that might'
creep into the following report. And don't say you weren't
warned.

It looks like the Five-Thirty Club may be out of business soon. AMS Treasurer Russ Robinson suggested
Monday flight that Council meetings start at 5 p.m. with
a dinner break at 6.
When this column was originated, the first episode
was written without a name. In casting about for a head
the writer along with a couple of editors were stymied.
Hustling John Goodwin finally supplied the idea for
the title. He made a habit of shouting "Five-Thirty Club,
vFive-Thirty Club," as he tried to hustle councillors into the#
dining room so he could put on a little more weight.
And so, a column was born.
But now, it seems that "Five-Thirty Club" may become
obsolete. Should council go through with the idea of start-
v ing meetings at five, poof, no title. J~~
*        *        *
Some complaints were voiced about the progress of
investigation into the new student assembly.
One councillor said: "We have given USAC a lack of
direction. We must sit down and decide for ourselves."
Malcom Scott, a delegate to the new activities group,
said that many delegates feel that it is merely an extension
of USC (the Undergraduate Societies Committee).
Council has decided to take a long look at the set-up.

'Let's Get Organized'
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The frosh class is continually,
being harassed for its "apathy
and, disorganization." "Apathy"?
—certainly not! A record number of candidates in the Council
race, a lively interest toy the
electorate, and a record vote all
deny this charge.
But, as for "disorganization"
—well, the election is long dead.
One quarter of the year is now
over, and what has followed the
rush to the Rolls? In a word,-
nothing.
Before the protesting uproar
begins, let me clear my position.
We are told Canada's government is backsliding. We are
told that the A.M.S. is wobbling
on its last legs. Now we find that
the zest, the glowing enthusiasm
of the fervent, duly elected elect
of the frosh has been -replaced
by a dull, ''do-nothing" atmosphere of hibernation; Where are
the progress and the^results so
glowingly portrayed, -so' dramatically promised to the seething
adulatory "unwashed masses"?
Have they too, been replaced —
by a Frosh Council, definitely
not apathetic, but indecisive and
disorganized? This appears to be
the case. At the time of writing
"St. Michael's Epistle to the
Disillusioned Multitude", the
two appointments (not three, but
two) to the Frosh council have
not been made — surely not a
ponderous decision, councillors.
You were elected with strong
support from all, and pledges of
help from all candidates and
various other quarters. The election was not an end in itself; you"
were elected to do a job, and a
hard one at that. Confucious say,
"Start now, play later." Good
old Confucious!
For all those who are about
to dip pen in, arsenic-pot and
denounce my criticism, as "imperialistic, capitalistic, warmongering and generally subversive
sour grapes", please save yourself the trouble. I'm as eager as
you for this to be the proverbial
"best year ever" — but, as the
man said, "Tempus fugit."
Sincerely,
Mike Coleman
ARTS I
P.S. This is not to say that individual councillors are not working — for indeed, they are, most
willingly. But let's get organized! (And thank you, Mr Editor)
Were Not Alone
UBC is not alone in having students who do not
accept their responsibility to act civilized.
It is barbaric to destroy the property of others for no
good reason. It is also barbaric to brawl.
The following is the comment of the Toronto Varsity,
student newspaper at the University of Toronto, on a riot
that occurred in conjunction with a football game there.
The Ubyssey has already commented on similar events
that occurred at the annual Homecoming game at UBC.
M
Inexcusable
The riot in Varsity Stadium following last Saturday's   T
game was the most disgustmg exhibition we have ever   j
seen staged by university students. "Sickening, disgraceful
and revolting" are usually not euphimistic words, but to
use them   to describe last Saturday's donnybrook would   ,
be euphimistic to the point of inanity.  It was  literally
beyond belief. j
It is senseless to ask what ever possessed a group of ;
supposedly-mature university students to make them act ;
like a gang of seasoned hoodlums. Put it down to an
excess of school spirit, put it down to the traditional
exuberance of the Engineers, put it down to whatever you
• want— the single stark fact remains that it was inexcusable.
Maybe the student from" Queen's University should;;be
censured for attempting to steal the goal-posts, and maybe
the students from Toronto should be denounced for rushing
to stop them. It doesn't count for a farthing—no amount of
censure or denunciation can justify what happened. '
But while the greatest part of the blame must lie   :
with the student^ who allowed themselves to take part in   f
the brawl,  some must rest with  others.  For  one  thing,   ;
most of the students who disgraced themselves and their
universities were inebriated to some extent. This means
that many of them were drinking at the game itself. What
then of the ruling that no. liquor may be drunk in Varsity   '
Stadium? The Athletic Association's drive to end drinking
in  the  Stadium  is commendable, but  the  ban  must  be
clamped down much more severely. i]
And what became of the twenty or more policemen
who were in the Stadium during the game? They certainly
made no move to stop the brawl, until it was all but ended,   '
even though it began before the final whistle was blown   '
to   end the game. It may be that there were not enough
of them to act effectively, and we certainly do not blame
any of them for not acting individually. But the riot lasted   !
for 'more than half an hour. Did this not allow sufficient
time for a group of police to be assembled in order to   '
quell the mob? f
Fortunately none of the 17 students who were injured
in the brawl" required required hospitalization. But this
is slight recompense for the slur which has been inflicted
upon the University of Toronto's name. We call upon the
Students' Administrative Council to investigate the whole
incident thoroughly, with a view to determining with ;
whom (if anybody) the responsibility must rest. Such an
incident must never be allowed to happen again. !

What Are NFCUS and WUSC?
NFCUS is Needed For
National Co-operation
By DIANE GREENALL
More than 80,000 students at 34 Canadian Universities and
Colleges pay from about 35 to 50 cents each per year for the
privilege of belonging to the National Federation of Canadian
University Students.
Despite this monetary tie,
however, very few people know
what NFCUS does or how it
operates.
NFCUS originated in 1926
with the idea of promoting unity
and solidarity amongst the universities in Canada.
Geographic .and ethnic barriers in Canada make an organization like this imperative if
we are to have a spirit of cooperation and co-ordination
among Canadian University students. This is especially needed
today when the governments
tend to disregard the importance
of education and the place of
students in our national life.
The National Federation of
Canadian University Students
strives for unity on a local, national   and   international   basis.
The intangibility of many of
the activities of NFCUS often
result in the opinion that it accomplishes little.
BRIEFS SUBMITTED
Submitting briefs to the government is one of the main activities of NFCUS on the national level. Recent briefs have been
on such issues as income tax
deductions, Education Week,
Student Loans and Bursaries
and unemployment insurance.
The organization of the Canadian University Press in 1938
was another accomplishment Of
NFCUS, CUP now functions as
an independent entity.
The NFCUS.. Travel Bureau
. offers low rates in trans-atlantic
travel and European tours, as
well as providing travel information' and" making general
travel arrangements and arranging tours.
The annual National Seminar,
held this year at UBC, provides
an   excellent   opportunity   for
Canadian University students to
meet and discuss both national
and international affairs.
SCHOLARSHIPS
A system of Inter-Regional
scholarships was arranged by
NFCUS with the generosity of
the university administrations.
Between 25 and 30 students a
year attend a university in another region, with the waiving
of his registration, academic and
Students'  Council fees.
Through the efforts of the
NFCUS, Canadian university
students have a life insurance
plan at the lowest rate in North
America, a national and international idebating competition
and a Student Discount Service.
LOCAL ACTIVITIES
NFCUS activities at a local
level are probably more appreciated by the general student
body. Short story, art and photography contests function on this
level. .Speakers, panel discussion and films serve to convey
to the student body information
about Canada.
Internationally, NFCUS represents Canadian students at international conferences.
A NFCUS organization the
Student United Nations Association of Canada (SUNAC), was
arranged to increase the awareness of theh Canadian Student
in the affairs of the United Nations.
NFCUS operated at the local
level through committees of students at each of the 34 member
universities. Student membership fees are contributed on a
sliding scale in the relation to
the number of registered students.
The annual national conference is the policy-making body
of the  National  Federation.

Grants Requested
From Government
OTTAWA;(CP) — The Canadian Universities Foundation
asked the government this week
to increase sharply its grants for
higher education.
In a brief presented to Prime
Minister Diefenbaker, the foundation asked the government to
raise Its per capita grant to $ .50
by the 62-63 academic year,
from the $1.50 established for
58-59.
It also asked for additional
grants of $500 for each full-time
graduates going on to take a
master of arts, doctor of philosophy or any equivalent degree.
Each full-time student in medicine or dentistry should also *win
his university a similar extra
grant.
The "foundation said more
money is needed to assure continued construction of university
facilities, and asked for grants
to be administered by the
National Research Council for
the science facilities, and the
Canadian Council for the
humanities.
World Understanding
Fostered by Service
By SANDRA SCOTT
The ideal of World University Service is to foster understanding and co-operation throughout the university world.
Forty-four nations are contrib-
'ting   to   higher   education   by
'-.oth  giving  and  receiving  ma-
anal aid, information and facil-
1 os  for  research  and   scholarship.
WUS is not a charity organization. Its International Program
of Action covers three fields:
material aid to students and faculty in fields of health, lodging,
education equipment and refugee and disaster aid; intern: tion-
tlI education through seminars,
conferences, study programs and
scholarships; development of the
world's universities through research and conferences on prob-
ems of higher education.
World University Service ol
Canada is governed by a national committee of students and
iaculty are elected annually.
WUSC has local committees at
32 universities and colleges.
Three UBC students were
chosen to attend the summer
seminar in Israel during July.
Another WUSC project is Tre:s-
jxe Van, an educational display
na sale oi handicrafts from
■;uch    countries   as   Yugoslavia,
Mexico, Japan, India, Peru,
Thailand, Jordan, Morocco, E^st
Africa, Egypt and New Zealand.
Financing of committee activities at UBC is achieved by a $1
levy per student included in the
Alma Mater Society fee. The
committee is thus a Students'
Council committee and is under
its jurisdiction.
UBC has been the leader
among Canadian universities in
the field' of exchange scholarships. Veterans returning to this
university arranged scholarships
with former enemy countries,
Germany and Japan, to promote
in a small way understanding
between the countries.
At present four UBC students
:re studying in Germany, Spain
and Japan on WUS scholarships
while four scholars from Germany, Nigeria and* Japan are
at UBC on exchange. These students receive tuition fees, lodging, living expenses and a textbook grant.
The local committee also sponsors a bursary fund, administered by the University, to aid foreign students with financial difficulties .
UBC supports the International Program of Action by an annual donation and promotes local activities such as panel discussions during the year.
Students will have an opportunity to see a national WUSC
project during Open House
week in February when Treasure Van comes to campus.

Landslide
For Kennedy
Kennedy by a landslide.  . .  .
This was the prediction made
last week by UBC students in a
Canadian University Press poll
conducted on campus.
A total of 73.5 percent of the
students polled picked Sen. John
Kennedy as the next president
of the United States. Only 6
percent chose Nixon.
But the students polled were
reserved in their support for
Kennedy with only 51 percent
favoring him, as their personal
choice.
The same was true of the record number of Americans who
turned out to the polles Tuesday
—Kennedy received 50.4 percent of the popular vote.
Former "Vice president Richard Nixon, on the other hand,
was the favorite of only 19 percent of the students polled. He
actually received 49.6 percent o
the U.S. popular vote, according
to Associated Press statistics at
noon -Wednesday.
A total of 20.5 percent of UBC
students polled would or could
not hazard a guess as to the winner of the election, and 30 percent said they were undecided as
to which one they would vote
for themselves.
On another question asked of
the students, 54.5 percent want
the new president to ask for
admission of Red China to the
UN, while 26.5 are against it and
19 percent are undecided.
• Figures at noon Wednesday
gave Kennedy a total of 31,066,-
878 votes to Nixon's 30,602,687.
Kennedy led in 23 States with
307 electoral votes; Nixon led in
26 states with 216 electoral college votes; 269 were needed to
win.

Army and Student
Clashes Probed
FREDERICTON (CUP)—A series of violent clashes between U of New Brunswick students and soldiers from Camp
Gagetown has brought an intensive investigation into the entire
affair.
Brigadier E. C. Brown, N.B.
Commander, has ordered a thorough probe by army provost
corps into the conflict in which
three were injured and several
others were arrested.
UNB officials, and the student
disciplinary council are also conducting an investigation.
EDITOR IN HOSPITAL
Two UNB students required
treatment at Victoria Public
Hospital. Most serious injured
was Gordon Howse, editor of the
campus newspaper, The Bruns-
wickan.
He was assaulted when three
people, two believed to be soldiers, . entered his boarding
house. Fourteen stitches were
required to close cuts on Howe'-s
head following the fight.
Ronald Samuels, -a first year
science-" studentr" need^: two
stitches." tc- c_*e~ a- cut-after he
was struck in the leg. Samuels
and two companions were passing through the old burial
grounds in the centre of Fred-
ricton when they were attacked
by a group of ten men. Samuels
later told police his attackers
had been soldiers.
REVENGE  OF-SOLDIERS
The incidents are believed to
have come from a Friday night
episode in which a UNB student
allegedly stabbed a Gagetown
soldier in the face during a
dance. Saturday other soldiers
are supposed to have come looking for retaliation.
At   one   point,   rival   groups
were lined up facing each other
on Queen Street, Fredricton's
main thoroughfare, throwing
salt and pepper shakers, sugar
containers and napkin holders
at each other.
Two soldiers one student and
two civilians were arrested on
charges of creating a disturbance
by fighting.
Estimates of the numbers involved range from 200 to 700.

a satisfactory night at the opera
An ideal performance is
something which an opera lover rarely has the opportunity
to see. Last Saturday's production of Puccini's La Boheme by
the Vancouver Opera Association, although not ideal, came
close enough to provide a thoroughly satisfactory presentation. La Boheme tells the story
of a group of mid-nineteenth
century Parisian bohemians
and particularly the love story
of the poet Rudolpho and Mi-
mi, a maker of artificial flowers.- From their first meeting
in the garret where they both
lived to her death from consumption at the end of the opera, Puccini has provided this
pair with some of his most
beautifully melodic music. This
fact, together with the poignancy of the story itself make La
Boheme one of the- undisputed
favorites of the sta idard operatic repertory.
Although the opera hinges
on the two main characters, a
number of subsidiary roles are
■nonetheless   important.   Satur
day's production demonstrated
how much better an overall
performance can be when these
psrts are well taken. Marcello,
Rodolpho's roommate, was
sung by Walter Millek. Although Mr. Millek's acting was
quite stilted at first and he was
vocally not so strong and
steady as one might wish, his
portrayal improved as the opera progressed, and was generally more than adequate. Col-
line, a poet friend of Rudolpho
was portrayed by Peter van
Ginkel in a way that left little
room for serious criticism. Similarly Earl Norman in the dual
role of Benoit the landlord, and
Alcindro, a wealthy old suitor
of Musetta, played his parts to
the full. If anything, he exploited their comic characteristics a bit too much. In the role
of the musician Schaunard, Na-
polean Bisson displayed a powerful, deep, and scmewhat
over-vibrant baritone. So powerful was the voice that it was
Out of balance in many of the
ensembles.   But   on   tne   other
hand, Mr. Bisson's characterization was splendid. Miusetta,
Marcello's fickle love, provided
an excellent vehicle to show
off Milla Andrew's talents as a
singing actress. What Miss Andrew lacks in vocal beauty she
makes up with dramatic intelligence. Her Waltz Song was
a thorough demonstration of
the virtuoso coquette.
All the parts just mentioned
cannot in themselves sustain
- no matter how well performed,
the opera. The soprano and
tenor leads demand singers of
high calibre and without fulfilling this requirement, no
production of La Boheme can
be termed a complete success.
Fortunately in the Canadian soprano Irene Saleka and the
Italian-American tenor Frank
Poretta two singers of the required standard were available. Mr. Poretta possesses a
youthful lyric tenor voice with
a brilliant top range. Although
his   first   act   aria ' Chegelida-
manina (Your tiny hand so
cold), started rather briskly, as
though he wanted to get it
over with, and concluded rather slowly, it was well sung.
Irene Salemka brought loth e role of Mimi beauty both
in appearance and voice. Her
aria Michimano Mimi (I am
known as Mimi) could have
been sung with more timidity,
but pureness of tone compensated for this. Special praise is
merited for her dying scene
which she sang movingly.
The colorful sets need hardly be criticized. They can probably stand comparison with
those of any major opera house
in the world. Vancouver is for-*
tunate indeed to have the services of Gail McCance as scenic
artist. His standards are consistently, high. An apparent
misprint in the/program listed
Irving Guttman as sage director instead of stage director.
This is not a misnomer. Of par
ticular note was his skillful
manipulation of chorus and soloists in the Act II cafe scene.
The final death scene was the
most .dramatic and moving, of
course. But this, one feels, was
due to the singers and musicians themselves. Despite the
possible triteness of the term,
I think ^living emotion" best
describes its performance.
There is an unfortunate tendency, I think, to consider
things local or (Canadian as being invariably of inferior quality. This production of La Boheme should go far to dispel
such a fallacy. True, the per-
formnce -was probably not
equal to the usual La Scala or
Metropolitan standard but
need it have been? The fact
remains that a sufficient level
of competence was attainced
that the beauty of the opera
could be enjoyed. This is what
matters. This was achieved.
WILLIAM LITTLER
lost in the castle
The best.thing about Harry
Vernon at Prep (Signet, 35c) is
the picture on the cover. The
lower half is a marble bust
with "Harry" carved in its
base; the top is a full-color side
view of the hero's head, scheming eyes, authentic beard,
straight-shooting cigarette under a wedge of nose — the
whole topped by a blue mortarboard. The cover was not executed by the author, Franc
Smith. It does however, convey
the idea on which the novel is
based: what if an Outsider
should actually get into The
Profession?
':Yes, but" I hear a Life-
reader say: "It's actually been
done, and quite successfully."
Lucethinkers swept under the
rug, I am prepared to assert the
trick has not (even yet) been
done as Mr. Smith conceived it.
His Outsider is a combination
of Lucky Jim, Holden Caul-
field, Ira Hearthug and Qean
Moriarity. Lest the progressive
reader find himself intrigued,
I hasten to add that the book is
filled with incidents which
read like undigested sections
from Lucky Jim- The Catcher
ift the Rye, Barefoot Boy- with
Cheek ana On the Road.
■*' Like Lucky Jinn the hero is
out of place in the castle of
academe and finally gets ousted by a disgruntled colleague
after a mad telephone scene.
Like Dean Moriarity He is a
con-man who scorns squares
and cant ("phonus balonus" to
uhe Mr. Smith's cant phrase.
To be fair, the cant he attacks
is "the Abnormal Psychology
of Literature," including Zen.)
Like Max Schulman Mr. Smith
manouevers his hero into a
number of set-up situations
(some mere outlandish joke,
some vaguely social satire).
And finally, like Holden Caul-
field, Mr. Smith's hero talks to
his reader like an old-young,
naivewise, skeptical-sentimental schoolboy. Such a character
might be believable at age sixteen or even twenty-four; but
at age thirty-three, having
fived through at least one WW
II navel battle, Harry Vernon
cannot expect much sympathy
for his adolescent sensibility.
That the hero's basic nature
is similar to the author's, one
suspects from numerous autobiographical-sounding passages.
That the author is still an adolescent, the last half of the
novel demonstrates conclusively. Item I — Harry falls in
love with a forty-year-old
woman (mother figure, that is
— a teacher whose class he
visits to learn how). Item II —
Harry has a strenuous time in
a motel with the MOTHER of
one of his   students.   Item III
— The teacher finds out about
the mother and marries the
fossilized head of the school
(out of spite?). There are many
more items, but I think my
point is made. The comedy disappears in a fog of sentimentality at the end.
Harry   Vernon   is   self-con
sciously anti-intellectual and
anti-academic. But though
Kingsley Amis convinces the
reader of the need for such negative thinking in England, Mr.
Smith does not demonstrate it
for this continent. So, much as
we agree that all bureaucratic
hierarchies need to be satirized (and any ten-thousand-
student institution will qualify)
Outsiders and Insiders at UBC
are doomed to continue getting
what satisfaction they can from
the windy blasts of that unstopped balloon, MM.
ELLIOT GOSE.

This advertisement will be of most interest to graduates in chemistry,
chemical, mechanical and electrical engineering and engineering physics.
What interests you most about a career ? Opportunity
should. Opportunity not only for advancement, but
opportunity for professional growth through varied
and interesting experience. We firmly believe in diversified experience and, luckily, we can offer it in our fully
integrated operation. We find it's best for you (makes
life more interesting and provides greater opportunity)
and best for us (we end up with senior people who are
fully experienced in our business). Now, let's have a
crack at answering some of your questions.
What do we do? Canadian Chemical Company produces
basic organic chemicals, cellulose acetate flake and
acetate yarns, fibres and staple.
Where do we do it? At Edmonton. We have three plants
on a 430 acre site. The first produces chemicals-
alcohol, ester and ketone solvents, acetic acid, glycols,
pentaerythritol, formaldehyde and other organics. The
second produces cellulose acetate flake. The third, acetate and Arnel yarns and fibres.
' Sales offices are located in Montreal, Toronto and
Vancouver.
What is our future? Very bright. (It just happens to ba
true.) We think of ourselves as a young, progressive,
fast-growing Canadian firm with world-wide affiliations. The record bears this out. So does the operation
of our Edmonton plant. And the fact that our engineering department is one of the largest and most diversified
in Canada*
Our raw materials are basic Canadian natural resources:
petroleum by-products from Alberta and cellulose from
the forests of British Columbia. Our markets are worldwide, and through our affiliates we have a strong alliance with companies in the textile, chemical and
plastics industries;
What would you do? As a qualified chemist or engineer
you could be working on product development, research,
process engineering, plant design, construction or some
aspect of production. This is exciting work in many
completely new'fields. As a chemist or chemical engineer
youcould choose also a career in safes or technical service.
What else should you know about us? Lots more. You
can get more information and literature by writing to
Department "A" at 1600 Dorchester Blvd. West,

CCF—Labour Merger
Last Straw Says Burns
Youths Endure
Tor and Choins
In Frut Hazing
BAKERSFIELD Calif. (UPD—
Nine junior college fraternity
pledges were ' found tarred,
greased and chained in a lonely
farm area near here.
Sheriff's deputies said the
youths, aged 18 to 21, were left
in the area as part of a fraternity hazing prank.
The youths told the deputies
grease was smeared on their
bodies and coal tar poured over
their heads before they were
chained and left in the remote
area about 7 p.m. Saturday.
They were rescued at 3:10
a.m. last Sunday.
-Deputies used bolt cutters to
free them because they were
chained so tightly they could
walk only a few inches at a
time.
They used kerosene to v^ash
off the tar which stuck to their
hair and bodies in some places
despite the grease.
"They seemed in good spirits,"
said  one   sheriff's. deputy.
One Only
Complains
, One student showed up to air
his complaints at a general meeting of the Food Services committee on Friday.
Members of the Food Services
Committee, composed of Mike
Hansen, Hoirrace Harrison, John
Auld, Pam McLean and Eric
Ricker, were open to hear complaints of all students concerning food services on campus.
The only student to show up
complained he could not get a
meal at the Bus Stop after 6 p.m.
The committee member in
charge of the Bus Stop will
study this complaint.
'By nature, almost by instinct, I'm a reformer,
lot of reforming to do."
With these words Pat Burns
told a Liberal Club discussion
group why he originally joined
the CCF Party. Burns, who managed Provincial Liberal leader
Ray Perrault's successful campaign is the Sept. 12 election,
left the CCF to join the Liberals.
He was with the Canadian diplomatic service in Britain when
the Labor Party came to power.
He said that he was impressed
with their reform program.
When he came to B.C. and
found the CCF representing itself as the local counterpart of
the Labor Party, he joined, rose
in the organization, and ran as a
CCF candidate in a federal election.
SOCIAL  INJUSTICE
Burns said that social injustice
was a major cause of conflict in
the world today, and that it was
not an exotic plant found only
in foreign lands, but, "a weed
that will grow in any soil."
He said that he joined the CCF
because he saw in it as in the
British Labor party, a movement for reform of social injustice .
Burns said the 1957 elections
which deposed the Liberals had
provided the opportunity for
more dynamic leadership to take
over. It put the Liberals back on
the track as the party of reform
he stated.
Explaining his break with the
CCF, Burns said he realized that
the  moderates   were   not   corn-
There
pletely in control, that extremists hacl a great deal of say in
prty policy. "I found myself at
executive meetings in constant
conflict with this- left-wing element," he added.
"The final straw was the proposed merger of the CCF with
the unions," he stated. Burns
saw the possibility of influence
being exerted by American
Labor leaders over the M.P.'s
and M.L.A.'s elected with the
support of unions largely under
American control.
The merger with the unions
would have taken the power
from the hands of the moderates. This contrasted with the
British Labor Party, which was
an autonomous political unit, he
stated.

overcome their weaknesses.
Coach Gnup is concentrating on
the offense and is letting the defense improve itself.
"They're tackling hard, but
the line is slow coming out," he
mused. ,.
The Birds will be using the
same lineup that started their
last game and are planning to
let some of the Jayvees show
their wares.
Stan Knight will be taking
over the quarterback slot left
vacant by.;Doug Piteau, who has
been sidelined by injuries.
Playing out of both the split
T and the short punt formations
the team has been unable to
find the big play and have never
really played wide open ball.
In- Gnup's words, "We're too
cautious. The boys are afraid of
making mistakes and don't open
up."
SPIRIT  LACKING?
The only other problem that
Gnup faces is the lack, of spirit.
This has really got the coaching
staff worried.
"They should want to win, but
they don't," he moaned. "I don't
know why. I just don't know."
Despite the overall lack of
team spirit, some of the players
have been giving all-out in every
game—especially Jim Olafson,
Bruce McCailum, Roy Bianco
and Jack Schriber.
On the other side of the ledger, Willamete is a power house
that has won 7 games without
a loss. Their biggest threat is
a 290%. defensive guard, who
is reported to be "the meanest
player you'll se."
Their lineup also includes a
small college Ail-American who
was the top ground gainer of
the American small colleges
three years ago.    .
Coaches Gnup and Hindmarch
are worried but they say the
team can win if they start to
fight. "If we don't smarten up
we'll get killed," prophesized
Gnup, "but we can take them
if we play up to our capacity."
The teacher was talking about
fur-bearing animals. "Tell me,
Michael," she ordered. "Do we
get fur from skunks?"
"We sure do," responded Michael. "Just as fur as we kin."

national college ratings.
The meet has been divided into three divisions: the Senior
open, Junior and High School.
Competing in the Junior division will be the University of
Washington, Washington State

Here This Weekend
The Pacific Northwest Grass
Hockey Conference is this year
being hostessed by UBC.
Teams from Washington,
Oregon, Idaho and Victoria
will be arriving Friday morning to partcipate in this three
day annual conference.
The teams this year are divided into three divisions according to calibre and each
team will play four games
against the teams in their
division.
Although there is no declared winner, the competition
is high and the;team to beat
is UBC. The reason for this
is that UBC hasn't lost a game
in the conference for several
years. But each year the
American teams get a little
better.
Judging from last week's
Alumni Conference the standard of hockey took a real
jump down south this year and
Varsity   will   really   have  to
be on the ball ,in the games
against the Universities of
Washington, Oregon, and Victoria  College.
The highlight of the conference is the banquet on Saturday night in Brock Hall, when
the . teams will get together
for food, entertainment and
fun.
Varsity's team consists of
T^lison Gourlay (last year's
main scoring punch), Barbara
Hay, Jocelyn Searle, Sheila
Clarke, Madeline Gimmill,
Alice Genge, Judy Sewell,
Kathy Swan, Barbara Lin-
berg (manager), who represented UBC last year at Cor-
vallis, Oregon, and Linda
James, Bernie Thompson, Pat
Nickols, Kathy Hawthorn, and
Diana Lawrence, who will be
participating in the tournament for the first time. Coaching the team is Barbara
Schrodt.

SPORTLJCHT
By DONALD STAINSBY
Surely Canada's sporting fraternity has got things badly
distorted when the general manager of a professional football
team can gain applause by crying "Athletic leadership must
come from the university."
Herb Capozzi said it, recently at a panel discussion.
'No Honest Effort1
He complained also: "There is no active honest effort by the
alumni, students or senate to aid athletics at the university."
He argued that if the univeriversity boasts strong scientists or
mathematicians, then the province as a whole would have high
standards in math and science. This may very well be so.
But then he goes on to imply that if the university is strong in
sports, B.C. is strong in sports. This is at most a shaky premise.
The university's leadership in academic fields is acknowledged.
Surely it should be. It is our province's premier academic institution. But why that should make it supreme in sports I cannot
imagine.
Surely the correct analogy would be that if the pinnacle of B.C.
sports was strong, then B.C. sport generally would be strong. In
most sports, in this day, it is generally assumed that the professional are the peak.
Now I think we have a reasonable premise. If we want strong
football in B.C., (which is, I think we'd find, what Mr. Capozzi is
most interested in) then let's have a strong professional team in
the B.C. Lions.
If we want strong hockey, let's make sure the Canucks and
Cougars are strong, and in baseball, the Mtounties. ^That's what Mr.
Capozzi is really arguing.
Away Behind
Mr. Capozzi and others like him cry about the shame of the
Canadian's somewhat unspectacular showing in the recent Olympics. They seem to hope to shame the public purse into financing
a better showing next time. I don't see any reason it should.
So Canada was away behind the Olympic leaders. I don't care,
fjothe B.C. Lions didn't make the playoffs. I don't care. And there
are thousands like me. Canada can't seem to win the Davis Cup?
that the university is failing in its mission if it doesn't produce.
Agajw I j ust don't care.
©ut I do care—-and I care very rnucb^-Habout the implications
great hordes of supreme athletes
It is going to do this in only one way^—by shifting its emphasis to
sport from its present and proper place, the gaining of knowledge.
JLeorning First
If university students have the time and the inclination, and
the university budget can spare the odd pennies to provide facilities, well and good, let them play their hearts out. Let them get
a couple of teams together and kick a ball about. That way they'll
.get 4fae physical exercise they need.
When Robert M. Hutehins became president of-the University
-of Chicago, almost his first act was to outlaw football and other
highly organized sports.
And they stayed outlawed for decades, during which the University of Chicago won an enviable academic reputation.
- It is, you see, a university's job to produce doctors of philosophy,
not general managers for professional football teams.

. . . Thunderbird crew captain heads the UBC expedition to the meet with Oregon
State in Cornwdllis, Ore.,
Saturday.:
being selected today will represent UBC in her
first autumn meet of the last
five years, which is designed to
put the cap on fall training.
UBC defeated Oregon State
last year in a spring meet, both
Varsity and JV crews winning
easily. k
iProspects for this year look
good. Coach Laurie West (a
tough guy to get a quote from)
feels, "We should win. We've
been training, pretty hard. We
lost some time on the Fraser,
but I don't think Oregon is better prepared. It's not often you
get times under seven minutes
this' early in the season."
(All three crews ran the 2000
metre course between 6:32 and
6:45, Wednesday.)
The site of the meet, Corvallis is on the Williamette River,
a tributary of the Columbia.
The crews will drive down
Friday, compete in the two races
and return Sunday.
UBC's rowing prestige has
grown steadily in the last
six years, and enormously since
the Olympics.
Now, UBC crews have been
infiltrated by prospective Olympians from as far away as Ontario and Washington.
If present trends continue,
there may be more experienced
men on the J.V. crew than on
the Varsity. One boatful of green
rowers seasoned with the odd
veteran has been constantly
beating the old crewmen.
These tyros, put together by
chance when they all arrived
early one day, have been winning ever since. The other crews
have been hampered by continual shuffling of positions and
men, and from here, it looks
like some of the old boys will
be spending a quiet weekend at
home.

students are reminded that the

CUP CAPERS
By  BOB   HENDRICKSON
Four University of Western
Ontario engineers have made a
real effort to ialleviate their fellow students'  parking problem.
These thoughtful engineers replaced staff parking signs with
student parking signs. Running
out of student parking sighs,
they produced two more signs
reading "New Student Parking,
Courtesy the Engineers."
I never realized until now
how self-centered our engineers
appear to be.

Somehow I get the feeling
Alberta University fraternity
men cannot compare with UBC

This feeling was roused by an

"fraternity rushing will be conducted on a dry basis this
year—."

The Univvarsity of Western
Ontario student council has a
problem. Unlike our no-goodnik
council which has been slashing
club cash allotments to balance
the budget, University College
Council is plagued with a $4,800
surplus.
Authorities are reported as
saying they don't know what to
do with it. I can supply you with
their address, Dave, if you care

iNow here is an interesting
item from The Sheaf, which
leads off, "Sex is one of the expressions of a man who is in a

The article goes on to quote
Dr. P. DeJong, systematic theology and ethics lecturer at St.
Andrew's College as saying marriage has been considered a
medicine for immorality.
I must admit I have been going all to pieces lately but I
don't think I would care for such
drastic  medicine.

I see in The Varsity, Toronto
University, that 1,400 students
have signed a petition agitating
for lower transit fares for university students.
The campaign, started by five
enterprising co - eds, includes
posters of half-clad females with
a cutline saying: "TTC fares

I wonder if we have any energetic girls on this campus? (I
don't mean that, George. Clean

From the University of Michigan comes an interesting item.
Students in Zoology and Anthropology will be furnished
with free lecture notes for a
week iand urged to subscribe to
a note-taking service for further
notes. The note-taking service is
student organized and is designed to provide students in large
lecture courses with mimeographed lecture notes.
A Zoology professor noted conflict between listening and writing that develops when students
attempt to learn and take notes
at the same time. He denied any
ethical impropriety in the plan.

McMaster President G.P. Gil-
mour said that he had "helped
invent it, and helped kill it. Students assured me that they needed the time, were exhausted and

Anyone who is contemplating
approaching President McKen-
zie with such an idea is advised
to conceal the above heresy.
