tGHAW&yAPPRAISES shavianism
A .     '   j
Shaw-Prophet Without Disciples
"A modern Socrates without disciples," was
the strictly partial tribute paid to Shaw as a
"Goad to the Intellect" by Dean Chant, Monday
In an attempt to scrub away the "dulling
•pathetic mildew that the dissection of an author's works causes to settle on the mind," Dean
Chant did not give a critical appraisal of Shaw.
Confessing  a  nostalgic   admiration  for   Shaw
^from which no amount of criticism can detract,
Etean Chant, in the word* of Shaw himself, stated
'I will do my utmost to avoid any impartiality."
.   Dean Chant explained that he first -met the-
bearded Fabian during his tender boy-scouting
days when, by sheer chanee he encountered the
"Devil's Disciple" on a library table. From that
time, Chant himself became if not a disciple at
least an enthusiastic admirer of Shavianism.
Shaw made an incalculable impression on the
youth of my time," Dean Chant said, "No present
day writer could create such an impression. To
day our imaginations are out-run by our expectations," Dean Chant explained, "Even the idea
of being blown to bits by atom bombs is quite
conceivable to us." But against the sombre
back-ground of the Edwardian period, Shaw's
audacious wit was like an explosion. Iconoclast
and scourge of sham, Shaw laid bare the pompous hypocrisy of Victorianisrn and laughed it
to scorn.
Most authors do not live to bask in their
own fame, but, at the age of 40, Shaw was already a highly controversial and well known
figure. His sardonic wit annoyed those who
thought themselves funny, and his denunciation
of the old order terrified the conventional; but
there were a few who could remain indifferent
to his caustic rumblings.
Like Socrates, Shaw goaded people to
thought, Dean Chant explained. He. was as much
an irritant as an inspiration his theory being
that "If you don't say anything irritating, you
may as well not say anything at all."
When Shaw attacked anything, from morals
to economics, he attacked thoroughly and made
no "strategic withdrawels," but, what makes his
work particularly enduring, Dean Chant said, is
that he pours out his most piercing truths iri a
bright vein of wit and humour.
"It took me years to make myself dull
enough to be accepted by the British as a serious
person," Shaw once proclaimed. But, in the
words of the He-Ancient in Back to Methuseleh,
"Whenever a thing is funny, look for a hidden
truth in it." And in considering truth the ".Funniest thing in the world," Shaw made an enduring
contribution to English literature.
"Because of the lack of system in his
thought and of formalization in his philosophy,
Shaw's ideology may not last," Dean Chant con*
eluded, "but among the number of Edwardians
that have made a decisive imprint upon our
society, Shaw is definitely the greatest."

We hope that The Ubyssey is not trying to live up to its
recently acquired reputation of being "A vile rag." Your
editorial entitled Liberal Drivel is an excellent example of
emotionally toned writing, and extremely questionable reasoning.
Your charge that, "it's so long since the Liberal Club,
or for that matter any other of the political clubs on campus
have done anything constructive, that the Liberals thought
they might as well do something destructive," is to say the
least absurd. The Liheral Club will speak for itself in this
regard. The Campus Liberal Club has direct affiliation with
the Canadian University Liberal Federation, the young Liberal
Association of B.C. and the Senior B.C. Lberal Association.
Each year the campus club forwards resolutions and sends a
delegate to the Ottawa Convention of C.U.L.F. Here the campus presidents from universities all over Canada discuss
common campus problems, and political questions of importance. For the past two years the UBC delegate has held the
position of western vice-president. Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. fall into this territory. The UBC
club has constantly pressed to have university fees made income
tax deductible.
The Campus Liberal Club also has executive representative representation in the Young Liberal Association of British
Columbia. At its most recent convention, held at Pinewoods
Lodge, November 18 and 19, 1955, the UBC delegates were
instrumental in passing six of the nine resolutions forwarded
by the UBC club which had five representatives at the convention. The views of the Campus Club and subsequently the
vews of all of the campus Liberal Club members are now an
integral part of the B.C. Young Liberal platform. It is also
important to note that over two thirds of the Young Liberal
Association's resolutions were incorporated into the Liberal
party platform at the last provincial election. The club's voice
in the senior association is heard through our representation
in the West Point Grey Liberal Association. By this means
the university has representation and can forward resolutions
to the Senior Liberal Assocation of British Columbia.
The club's campus activities are by no means unimportant
or insignificant either. The University Liberal Club is designed to serve two important functions: Firstly, to equip
young men and women for positions of active political and
social leadership in the community at large; and secondly, to
give young people some basic understanding of the philosophy
of Liberalism and to familiarize them with the various phases
of political activity. In both respects the University Liberal
Club has served its purpose well. The top three executive positions of the Young Liberal Association of B.C. are now held
by former UBC Liberals.
Monthly discussion groups and public meetings provide
an opportunity to study Liberal philosophy and various political questions. Mock Parliament and elections furnish students
with the experience and understanding of poltical activity,
while organized trips to Victoria furnish the opportunity for
many students to see the first hand operation of their government. It must be remembered that the Liberal Club was the
first campus organization to plan such an activity.
Shame on you, Mr. Editor, for your loose editorializing on
campus politics. The Liberal Club has proven its constructive

Rim   of   Hell
I wonder what has happened to, Department:
In the past few years we have refought the Second World
War on the ocean ("The Cruel Sea," "Caine Mutiny), knocked
around the stratosphere rather rapidly ("Breaking the Sound
Barrier",, degenerated with the French ("Bonjour Tristesse")
and recuperated with the Americans ("I'll Cry Tomorrow").
Truman, Jorgenson and Tal-<$	
lulah Bankhead have published     ate flag—it appealed to basic
their memoirs, while Dr. Kinsey is looking around for another sex to investigate. Pogo
is selling in staggering quantity to half the public; the
other half is evenly divided
between those who are "Dieting with Gayelord Hauser"
and those who are discovering
the "Power of Positive Thinking".
What is more, Long Sam
has not been raped or Dr. Morgan baffled.
So we come to the problem
at hand—what has happened
to the three million copy seller, the boy who tugged at America's heart strings as he
churned up his heroine's entrails with a round of dum-dum
bullets? Who cast the shadow
of obscurity on the originator
of the 'so-you've-been-mixing-

trying-to • drown • me-in-ver-
mouth-are-you — bang your

I mean—no, not Jack Webt)—
I mean Mickey Spillane.
Is there no place in North
American literature anymore
for such a man as he? So he
became a Jehovah's Witness
and has dropped his boudoir
scenes. Does that mean that it
is only sex we're interested
in? Don't answer that question. Have we for ever lost
the dramatic power, the fiery
passion, the rugged he-man,

boys, type of novel? No, no, no,
and what is more no.

little colour to the scene. This

the  neighbours.
As I turned round I noticed
that the Confederate flag was
flying at half-mast—in sympathy, I guess. The flagstaff
swayed  rhythmically.
"Well, what now," she
purred, kicking aside the beer
cans as she came towards me.
She walked slowly over the
flag as it fell to the floor. My

The Architect In Society
Architects Used
Varied Materials
In constructing the spectacular Architecture Exhibit
now on display in UBC Art Gallery, architecture students made ingenious use of a variety of materials—from
golf-tees to lead pipe to baling wire.
Golf-tees, for instance, were used in the exhibition
for lettering on fiberboard display boards, and as "legs"
for many of the lighter display models.
Explained fourth-year Architecture student Ron
Howard, who partcipated in the construction of the display, "the use of golf-tees wasn't meant to be arty or fanciful; we were faced with definite financial limitations, and
golf tees happened to combine the qualities of economy
and function. So we used 'em."
One of the most attention-getting features of the
exhibit, an ostrich-sized mobile, was designed by Barry
Rand, fourth-year Architecture, from bits of spare plastic,
cork, melted lead castings, and copper shavings.
Rand admitted the huge mobile was not intended to
be part of the decor of the living-room display featured
in the exhibit. "But it's still legitimate sculpture," he said.
To the uninitiated, the most impressive—and most
puzzling—feature of the display is a seven-foot pla,ster-
of-paris "man," which hulks, ape-like, in the middle of the
display area.
Creator of the dribbly plaster monster is Dan Lazosky,
second-year Architecture, who built his "Frankenstein" by
pouring buckets of plaster of paris over a frame made of
paper, wire and lead pipe. In the exhibit, the bizarre
figure represents man, for whom the architect must create
an environment.
Total cost of the exhibit, which under ordinary conditions would have cost about $3000, was $175.

"Man and his Environment,"
an architectural project designed to show the responsibilities of the architect to modern society, is the latest display in  UBC's Art Gallery.
The School of Architecture,
students and faculty alike, has
come up with an exhibition that
more than lives up to its billing
of demonstrating how man
plays and works in buildings
adapted through architectural
principles to his surrounding environment.
The dual project consists of
a series of mobiles and designs
and right next door a number
of sets of prize winning thesis
plans in the Pilkington Glass
Company recent competition.
The mobiles are exciting and
different, having such themes
as the various mathematical
symbols used by architects.
Iron, plastics, wire and glass
are all combined to create light
; and airy hanging mobiles.
The designs show man as he
I is influenced by the elements
of architecture. Subjects shown
have titles like structure (a
model apartment house), history
(tiny, miniature buildings), and
town planning (with an arranged, futuristic town).
Two other designs are called
body and mind (hand-sculptured
different parts of the body and
brain), and services, (a fascinating open-faced wire power
plant). i
The display next door features UBC's grad Richard Arch-
ambault's "Children's Theatre".
Twelve different blueprints,
sketches and designs are shown
tracing the journey of the
theatre from Archambault's
drawing board to the actual
scale model displayed.
Archambault, now studying
in England on a Pilkington
scholarship, graduated from
UBC's School of Architecture
last year. His work in the display, like the other award winners, is a visual demonstration
of the principles shown in the
mobiles and designs series.
Yet another feature of the
dual project are two planned
living rooms with tiled floors,
lowered ceilings and shaded
lamps. All the furniture, although arranged by the students
was loaned by various city
wholesale and interior house
decorating firms.
Center of the half of the project featuring designs is a full-
length sculptured man, the representation of man himself
who stands the master and the
creator of the architectural aids
and projects he has designed to
make living easier for himself
and for his children.

Gallery, explains the theme
of the exhibit, and why it was
We, the students of architecture, are currently presenting in the UBC Fine Arts
gallery "Architecture; Man,
and His Environment". This
is 8n exhibition that departs
from the norm in as much as
it is not primarily a display
of architecture student s'
drawings but is an attempt to
point out to the public some
of the underlying considerations which universally influence architecture.
It must be remembered
that a work of architecture is
essentially a work of art and
as such is a product of the
artist's individualistic interpretations and biases. The
architect, while essentially a
creative individual, is also a
highly responsible servant of
As such he should use his

be used in UBC's production of
Shaw's epic "Back to Methuselah," for the simple reason that
five acts and numerous scenes
leave stage hands little or no
time in which to change settings.
These settings range, from
the Garden of Eden to 3000
A.D. and the different representations have been painted in
water colours as sketches by
Vancouver artist Cliff Robinson.
Photographer and lighting expert Tom Lea made color films
of the sketches. The images will
now be projected onto the bare
stage setting with the aid of
powerful spot lights.
One peculiar property being
used in the play is a giant, five
foot long cardboard egg from
which pretty Carol Bowen, Arts
1, will emerge in the last act.
This egg illustrates playwright
Shaw's firm belief that humans
in the far future will be born
as fully grown adolescents and
incubated rather than carried.
Carol's egg, painted a light
blue, tones in with the grey
floor. The other unusual property of the play, a green snake
complete with a 36-foot long
tail will appear in the Garden
of Eden scene and is not projected.
ciate environmental needs and
to design in accordance with
them we need a balance of intellect and imagination which
we hope will result in architectural unity.
This unity is obtained
through the co-ordination and
integration of many vital elements. Our exhibition contains semi-abstracted representations of seven of these
elements: History, Mathematics, Structure, Town Planning, Physical Environment,
Services, and Body and Mind.
The seven shown are no
more than a partial indication
of the many fields which a
conscientious architectural investigation must include.
Over and above the displays
of these more tangible aspects
of architecture, the exhibition
contains qualities of a more
abstract nature which are apparent only in as much as
they are inherent in the exhibition as a whole. These are
the qualities of light, color,
texture, form, mass, and
space, whici\are to the architect as words are to the
writer—that is, his medium
of expression.
It is then, through careful
consideration of the tangible
and abstract, and their subsequent integration that a
work of architecture is realized.

Summer in Europe with the C.O.T.C.
Among the many benefits available to members of the
Canadian Officers' Training Corps, one of special significance
is the opportunity in their third phase of practical training
to elect service with the regular Canadian forces in Europe.
Selection for Europe is based on high academic and military
standing, and in 1055 four members of the U.B.C. Contingent,
C.O.T.C, were chosen for the signal honour.
Here are the comments of one of the four, Lieutenant
C. T. M. (Ted) Hadwen, Royal Canadian Infantry Corps, who
graduated from the University last spring with Second Class
Honours in History and who is now taking post-graduate
studies at St. John's College, Cambridge:
We who were fortunate enough to be posted to the 1st
Canadian Infantry Brigade Group in Germany were assigned
to duty with units of our own corps. Dan Harrison of the
Royal Canadian Corps of Signals went to the Signals Platoon
of the 2nd Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Regiment; Mark
de Weerdt, Royal Canadian Artillery, also went to the 2nd
R.C.H.A.; John Loewen of the Royal Canadian Engineers
was attached to the 2nd Field Squadron, R.C.E.; and I served
with the 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light
Each of us was employed throughout the summer as a
sub-altern on the same basis as junior officers of the regular
army. We were welcomed as full members into the units we
joined and were expected to carry out all the responsibilities
that our appointments demanded.
Along with the regular troops, the C.O.T.C. officers
found the summer training period in Germany invaluable.
To us, the two outstanding events of the period were the
field exercises at Sennelager in June and at Soltau in August,
where realistic conditions of war were successfully simulated Topical realism was achieved on a number of occasions
when the effects of atomic warfare were taken into account.
The summer inevitably provided, in addition to sound
training, opportunities to appreciate the many attractions of
Continental Europe. Officers of the C.O.T.C. were free to
travel on numerous weekends and during one full week of
leave. With special military rates for travel on German
trains, all parts of West Germany were particularly accessible. The cathedral city of Cologne on the Rhine and its
thriving sister city, Dusseldorf, were but a few hours away
from the permanent Canadian camps. Those of us from
U.B.C, however, ranged as far afield as Rome, Innsbruck,
Paris, London, and Copenhagen.
At the end of our time in Europe, we all felt that we had
passed a most agreeable summer as well as one of great
educational value in all respects.
NOTE: The final date for enrolment in the COTC during
this Session is rapidly approaching. All who are interested,
please contact Major G. P. Hariling, Resident Staff Officer,
in the COTC Orderly Room, The Armoury. THE UBYSSEY

Birds   Die   Before
Eastern   Savages
U,BC Thunderbirds did not find the American hospitality
ih Cheney to their liking as they dropped two weekend Evergreen Conference basketball games to the Eastern Washington
Savages by 78-55 and 72-62 scores.
Birds moved from Cheney to«a||d John McLeod foUowed with
Spokane for a Monday night
game with Whitworth Pirates.
(See front page for details.)
UBC ran into a red-hot team
In Eastern Washington. Al*
though the Birds had a two win,
one. loss record before meeting
the Savages, they were no match
for the Americans who hit a sen*
sat ional SO percent of their shots
Friday night and followed that
performance with an even better 53 percent on Saturday.
However, UBC was not the
only squad to run into trouble
on the road. Western Washing*
ton and Pacific Lutheran also
found things rough, in Whitworth and Central Washington
respectively. The Lutes suffered
their first loss of the season.
Friday even, UBC did not
seriously threaten Eastern at
any time. The Savages built
up an early lead and the closest
the Birds came to overcoming
it was four points, mid-way in
the first half.
Coach Jack Pomfret's Thunderbirds had a lot of trouble
containing the Savages double
post offense. To make matters
worse, the Savages held the UBC
starting guards, Ed Wilde and
Barry Drummond, to the grand
total of one point.
Center Mike Fraser topped
the Bird scoring with 15 points
a 14 point effort.
Savages' center Bob Burk-
hart took individual scoring honors for the game with at 21
point total. Sherwood with 12,
was the only other player to
reach double figures for Eastern Washington.
In the second game against
Eastern, the Birds showed some
improvement, as the 72-92 score
indicates. Jack Pomfret found
some consolation for the loss in
his squads record at the foul
line (30 out of 41), and in Mike
Fraser's 23 point performance.
Fraser easily topped McDou-
gall's IS points to take the evening's scoring honors. UBC forward Jim Pollock also had one
of his better games, finding the
range for 13 points.
Thunderbirds next home game
is at 2 p.m. this Saturday against
Western Washington. The Birds
also meet Western in Bellingham
Friday night.

Last night, before a crowd
of 29 non-paying basketball
fans, Vancouver C-Funs defeated UBC Jayvees 68-45,
thus eliminating the varsity
team from competing in the
Sr. "A" league playoffs.
The game opened with the
J.V.'s scoring 80 percent of
their shots but after the first
quarter, Dick Penn's crew
was dead. "A game Saturday
night and a game Monday
night was too much for us,"
said coach Penn.
C-Funs took over the lead
midway in the second quarter
and by half time, they had
an eight-point lead which
could never be headed by the
Junior Birds.

"I need more players," cried
Jayvee coach Dick Penn, after
the Varsity squad dropped a
close 65-60 decision to Vancouver Eilers last Saturday night

Ed Petersen opened the game
with two quick field baskets
and Frank Tarling followed up
with two more after Eilers took
two points on foul shots. But
Jewellers tied the game up with
three fast breaks late in the
quarter to make the score read
10-10. Jayvees held on to a two-
point lead at the end of the
first quarter.
Down 28-24 at the breather,
Eilers opened the second half
with an eight-point splurge and

foul shots, but the tired Jayvees
couldn't hold down the opposition and Jewellers again took

Ken Thinks...
By Ken Lamb
And so once again we rise to
smite the backers of a Canadian
university athletic league.
It seems that the great Canadian art of co-operation, as exemplified by one Lester Pearson, and which has made Canada a great go-between in the
United Nations, has not found
its way into certain undeveloped
areas of the land of its birth.
We speak of that birth place
of Social Credit, Alberta, and
the university of the same name.
Many moons ago, when it was
thought to revive the defunct
Western    Intercollegiate    Foot
ball Conference, the U. of A.
was the only university other
than the ever-effervescent UBC
to back up the proposal.
Alberta's support mind you,
was in no way concrete. It consisted chiefly of a poll which
showed a majority of students
in favour of such a league. But
inconsequential as this move
was, it did give some hope to
UBC's athletic giants, who were
at all times ready to go out of
their way to offer any reasonable terms, and all the help
UBC could muster for the success of the league.
Hoop Gone, Hockey Goes
The football plot, faced by
almost insurmountable costs,
has folded. But UBC is still interested in fostering cross-Rocky
relationships as much as possible.
The basketball and hockey
series continued, and showed no
sign of doing otherwise. At least
not at this end.
But certain recent actions on
the part of the athletic office at
the Edmonton Institute for
clogged brains have dampened
The first occured last spring.
It was Alberta's turn to host the
basketball championship. A few
days before the Thunderbirds
were due to take off, athletic
director Van Vliet sent word to
the west coast that the U of A
would have to decline the pleasure of being trounced in their
own back yard.
The story was told that two
supporting tresses of Alberta's
gym had buckled, and it was
therefore unsafe to hold the
UBC's athletic director Bub
Phillips, always a fast man to
seize a good opportunity, countered with a proposal. "Bring
the Golden Bears out here," ire
said. "It would be a natural in
conjunction with Open House."
Let  Alberta   Rest  Forever
President Stewart of the U.
of A. declined. His lads had
travelled enough, he said. They
needed a rest. UBC's Dean Whit
Matthews, formerly a member
of the Alberta staff, and president of the Men's Athletic Association, tried to convince
Stewart that a series out here
was important enough to warrant a little extra travelling.
But the U, of A. was immovable, so no basketball series. It
was hardly what anyone would
call a brotherly spirit of cooperation, co-operation that resulted in the discontinuance of
the annual basketball series.
Then a few days ago, the foothill filberts compounded the
felony. Bus Phillips had sent
his  letter  proposing  four  pos
sible dates for the Hamber cup.
Four, mind you, amidst a busy
schedule of basketball and I
World Cup rugger dates.
But none of them were goodl
enough for Alberta. They asked|
for others. They wanted a bigger selection. They seemed to|
think that a host's duties extended to the realm of the im-|
Phillips performed the impos>|
sible. He managed to dig up
total of seven possible dates.
Alberta condescended to ad

ing which time no other athletic
event will be allowed to taka|

Hamber Cup For Powell Rivei
So the Hamber Cup is going
to be combatted for in the sports
arena of no more distant a town
than Powell River.
All those willing to charter a
boat, raise their hands. All right,
those that raised their mitts,
find two more and well have
enough for a full rowboat.

RUGGER—Frank Gnup's version—is the
only explanation for this free-for-all. Gnup,

Varsity   Rugger
Swamps 'Lomas
Varsity rugger teams enjoyed their most successful weekend, win-wise this season, as they sent five teams to the field
and posted three wins and a tie.
While Braves trounced the Meraloma second team 32-0 on
the Aggie field, the Varsity overpowered the 'Lomas' senior
squad 27-3 before scattered spectators in the Stadium.
Frank Gnup's papooses, or, i
as he prefers to call them, the ;
"Juggernauts"   showed   surpris-1
ing strentgh in humbling the
Redskins, 15-3, while in the single off-campus match, Tomahawks and Blue Bombers fought
to a 3-3 draw at Connaught Park.
Dave Morley scored two trys
for the Varsity in a game dominated by the hard-working UBC
forwards. Doug Clement tallied
the first try, followed by two
scores by Derek Vallis and Morley, both converted by Bob Morford.
A goal and a try by Peter
Tynan and Pete Grantham made
the score 18-3 at the half. A
penalty by Morford, Morely's
second score, and a try by Clive
Niel closed out the scoring for
Laithwaite's crew.
On the Aggie Field, the highflying Braves kept up their amazing points-per-game average
with a dazzling second-half display of ballhandling which overwhelmed the weak 'Loma defense. Gerry McGavin rammed
his way across for the first Brave
try early in the game, and Hugh
Barker converted from a difficult angle.
Braves then had a run of pot
luck, John Mulberry getting
away a drop-kick which split
the posts for three points, and
Bob Hutchinson followed up a
long dribbling rush by falling
on the ball for a try, after several Meralomas had already had
a shot at it.
Doug Muir and John Legg
each scored trys early in the
second half, Legg dashing 50
yards for his. Barker converted
A penalty by Barker, a nice
try by Dave Brockington, who
took an inside pass from Tom
Anthony and stumbled over,
and another conversion by Bar*
ker brought the score to 27-0.
Bruce Allardyce tallied the
final try, completing a smart
back-line movement in which
eight men handled the ball. Bar*
ker converted, as usual.
Honorable mention goes to
Ken Powers who, never having
scored a try in his life, kicked
the ball into the end zone, But-
ran several 'Lomas to the oval,
and fell on it just inches past
the dead-ball line.
In the low scoring contest at
Connaught, Marc Bell kicked a
penalty for the Tommie's only
three points.
Ron Stewart, Bruce Eagle,
Jerry O'Flanagan and Jim Grey
all scored trys for the football
men, who stuck to the ground
in grinding out their initial victory. Bob Weinberg converted
one of the four trys. The 'Skins
three points came on a penalty
kick by Bill Cousins.

Using fa^ts and figures from
the brief which he presented to
the Sloan Commission., currently investigating the forest industry in ».C, he criticized the
'-'alienation ot our most important natural resource." Rush
said that SO percent of the area
granted under Forest Management Licenses has gone to American controlled companies.
The L.P.P. leader condemned
the export of raw and semi-pro
cessed forest products to the U.
S., claiming that "thousands ot
jobs could be created for B.C.
workers it the produce of our
forests was fully processed
Mr. Rush said that the L.P.P.
was not opposed to American
capital being invested in Canada
provided that it was invested in
manufacturing and not raw materials which would be exported
to the U.S.

other meetings on "Fish and
Power," "Industrial Develop-
ment of B.C." and "The Agricultural Crisis in Canada."
