 ' To Swim  Lilypond
Sweetie Swims Again
Canada's honeybun, Carol
Gregory, will attempt to conquer the treacherous, storm-
swept waters of UBC's Lily-
pond, October 25, in a daring
channel swim sponsored by the
Ubyssey and the Pep Club.
College students all across
the nation who thrilled when
the spunky, 14-year-old marathon swimmer stroked her way
through the oily, tide-tossed
waters of Little Mountain reservoir will have a chance to see
first-hand a demonstration of
the powerful swimming technique and the indomitable courage that made her a champion.
Carol will be coached for the
gruelling feat by UBC Coach
Grank T. Gnup.
Gnup and Carol chose the
noon-hour of October 25 as "C-
Day", since tide and weather
conditions are expected to be
most favorable at that time.
Stakes are high in the Thursday noon marathon. "I get a
bottle of Johnny Walker black
label just for putting my toe in
the water,"    Carol    simpered  ^
when interviewed Wednesday.
"And if I reach the other side,
I get another bottle."
Swimming Coach Gnup was
confident of victory Wednesday. "Carol's been on a strict
training schedule for months,"
he said, "and she's in peak condition."
"The little girl's a real champion,'' he said.
Carol, a shy, winsome student
at UBC, began her swimming
career in 1953, when she spent
the summer at Spanish Banks.
Ubyssey Editor Sandy Ross
and Pep Club President Mike
Jeffery, co-sponsors of the swim
were jubilant on Wednesday.
"Carol will make it, we're sure
of that," Jeffery said.
Starting exclusively in Tuesday's tJbyssey, Carol will write
her daily diary of the exciting
tvents leading up to the swim
from her training camp at the
Old Charming Pubbe, in Victoria.

AMS President, Don Jabour,
has predicted — probably correctly — that today's meeting
will be the "quietest in years,"
but rumours reaching the Ubyssey offices indicate that not
every Council measure will go
unchallenged.
Unconfirmed reports reaching
the Ubyssey offices state that
Engineers will present a motion
that would remove Councillors'
present privilege of free attendance at any AMS function.
And Agriculture Undergraduate Society officials say they
will definitely contest AMS
Treasurer Al Thackray's $125
budget allocation to the AUS.
"If we don't get satisfaction at
the meeting, we may do something drastic,," AUS President,
Bill Davis, warned Wednesday.
Constitutional revisions proposed by Council are of a relatively non-controversial nature,
and are expected to pass with
little discussion.
One revision will specify that
Roberts' Rules of Order will
henceforth govern procedure at
AMS meetings. Roberts' Rules
has been used in the past, but
constitutional specification may
avoid procedural hassles, such as
oceured after last Fall's General
Meeting, Councillors feel.
World University Exchange
students, at UBC on WUS scholarships from all over the world,
will be introduced at the meeting.
NFCUS
.-TORONTO — University of
Toronto Student Administrative
Council voted 17-3 to apply for
re-entry into the National Federation of Canadian University Students Wednesday night.
The Ubyssey was informed of
the move Wednesday night by
wire from Peter Gzowski, editor
of the Varsity, University of Toronto daily newspaper.
Toronto withdrew from the
Federation last year but led
many of the proposals for revision of NFCUS which were accepted by the Montreal conference last week.
External Affairs commissioned Jerry Helleiner to orgamze
a pre-confeernce for "emphasis,
simplification and decentralization," oi the Federation.
UBC Students' Council Monday night voted to stay in the
Federation.
WIDE-EYED AGREEMENT with Communist Labor Leader Jack Phillips is shown by LPP club president Jim
MacFarlan, as Phillips knocks Quebec Padlock Laws. Phillips spoke to an audience of twenty-five in Arts 100 Tuesday noon.
Padlock Law Hit
"It is a sad state of affairs when any ignoramous of a police
officer can come into a private home and padlock it" Jack
Phillips, Communist labor leader told a meagre audience in
Arts 100 Tuesday.
Phillips was speaking at
an LPP-sponsored meeting on
the Quebec Padlock Laws.
Phillips condemmed Quebec
Premier Maurice Duplessis
who was returned to office
last month after "one of the
most corrupt elections ever
held in Canada" for the provincial  law.
The law states that any
building used for meetings
of organizations or unions
which have Communists on
their executive may be padlocked, and any "subversive"
literature  seized.
Phillips hit Duplessis for introducing the law, and for
makiug it retroactive ten
years "in order to hold a club
over some of his politicaal
enemies.''
"It is the most vicious law
ever passed by a country in
the British Commonwealth"
Phillips added.
He quoted Duplessis as saying that the law is meant to
include "thousands and thousands,of peaple who are Communists and are not aware of
it."
The penalty for conviction
under the law is three months
in jail and payment of court
costs.
"This has led to the while-
sale intimidation and repression of a lot of peaple who
would like to participate, in
free discussion." Phillips said.
He urged students present
to study the law. "You fellas here can study it over a
long period, and decide whether it is democratic or not" he
concluded. THE    UBYSSEY    Of Martyrs And  Homosexuals

[Let's Appeal It
We were rather happy to see AMS Treasurer Al Thackray politely corrected at Students' Council meeting Monday
jvenjng.
The argument which Thackray lost concerned the size
|>f the AMS grant to be slotted to the Arts and Science Un-
lergraduate   Society.   Thackray   had   originally   answered
ASUS request for funds with a token grant of $50. He
/ould give no more, he said, \intil ASUS had "proven it-
|elf." ASUS President Tom Wilson quite properly labelled
le $50 grant "ridiculous," and protested to USC Chairman
tobin Scott. Scott persuaded Thackray to up the grant to
(1125, but Wilson still wasn't satisfied. Monday, he appeared
•efore Council, and asked for more. Over Thackray's pro-
ests, ASUS emerged with an initial grant of $200. This amount, we think, is more like what ASUS deserves.
But it disturbs us to think that ASUS received its right-
i\ due not through, but despite the AMS Treasurer. And
disturbs us still more to wonder how many other campus
jrganizations have been beggared by Thackray's budgeteer-
ig, but haven't bothered to fight back, as ASUS 'has done.
In all fairness to the Treasurer it must be stated that
kSUS' record of achievement last year was not admirable,
Ind that a "wait and see" attitude was certainly justified,
tut Great Caesar's Ghost, not to the miserly tune of $50,*
r even $125.
Can it be that Mr. Thackray just plain doesn't like any
Indergraduate Society except the Engineer'? The Aggies,
>r instance, are squawking, and with good reason; others,
(rith far more reason, may be keeping silent.
The AMS Treasurer, we are convinced, is doing not
lerely a competent job, but a superior one. He is doing his
ivel best to allocate AMS funds as he sees fit. But it's pos-
|ble for anyone to commit an error of judgement, just as
lackray has done in the ASUS case.
The only moral to be drawn from this little tale is that
tudents and student organizations, who disagree with Coun-
Uors' decisions, don't necessarily have to submit meekly to
leir fate. Certain channels of appeal are always open to them,
id these channels should be utilized.
hat A Shame
It is unfortunate in several ways that today's Fall
jeneral Meeting promises to be of a quiet and relatively
jn-controversial nature.
In the first place, the Meeting might not achieve a quor-
It's  unfortunate   but   true   that   most   students   regard
Iie General Meeting as a sort of circus; and if no-one is being
d to the lions that particular day, the UBC electorate tends
go somewhere else to eat their lunches.
A quorum, to be sure, is desirable, but not wholly neees-
|ry. We've got along without one several times before, and
lless some malcontent  challenges tomorrow's  assemblage,
>'ll probably get along without one this time.
To our minds, a placid General Meeting at this stage
the game will have a  far more  unfortunate effect:  the
juving deficiencies of the General Meeting .system as it now
ands will not again be demonstrated to UBC students.
Last Spring's ghastly farce must surely have impressed
J number of students  with the fact that UBC has grown
|o big for one hundred-percent democracy. A repeat per-
.rmanee might impress a few more; and alter several such
icores, students  might   be  sufficiently  disturbed  with  the
.Ujjtion to do something about  it.
Unhappily, today's General Meeting isn't  likely  to dis-
rb anyone unduly. So it's doubtful that we can look for any
despread campus reaction against the present antiquated
stem for some time yet.
Too bad.
Boo On Movie Taboos;
Let's Face Reality
(Editor's Note; The AMS Coordinator, who books dozens
of movies onto the campus
every year, here sounds off
against movie taboos in general, and taboo-mongers of
the "Iratus" ilk in particular).
By BEN TREVINO
The recent furore created by
"Iratus" over the campus showing of "Martin Luther" is in itself nothing to worry about.
But as a fact of the all too prevalent belief that Art should
never offend in the slightest, it
gives real cause for concern.
To subscribe to that idiotic
premise is tantamount to saying
that Art should say nothing.
Cinematography is an art
form, but unfortunately Hollywood's main concern has been
with the fast buck. It has listened to Iratus and "its" ilk and
has consequently lost its virility. Compromise has meant
castration.
With very few exceptions, we
have seen a procession of movies that have affected us like
a sugar-coated laxative. Boy
meets girl, boy loses girl over
some insignificant and asinine
argument, boy wins girl back
and they live happily ever
after
Everything is peachy-dandy,
life is just a bowl of cherries,
God's in His heaven and all's
right with the world. We have
been lulled into a smug, self-
satisfied complacency that purges us of thought and indignation.
SMOTHERED
Each time Hollywood has
tried to give a realistic presentation it has been smothered in
protests from small-minded,
humorless people whose sensitivity knows no bounds. Show
a tip-hungry, officious waiter
and receive indignant protests
from the Waiter's Union. A
greedy priest brings protests
from the Catholics.
An amoral Baptist preacher
brings wails from the Baptists.
"Oliver Twist" was picketed by
the Jews (but "Gentlemen's
Agreement" was lauded).
Show- the inside of a woman's
thigh and the picture is banned
in Boston. Too much cleavage
brings a protest from the presumably bosomless Mothers of
America.
"Lost Weekend" was condemned by the WCTU because
it "glorified" alcoholism. Show
the birth of a buffalo and the
movie is labelled "obscene" in
Saskatchewan. Show any Negro performer except as a shoe-
shineboy, waiter, porter, or
Aunt Jeminma housemaid and
the picture is banned in Tennessee. On and on, ad infinitum.
Just what kind of world is
Hollywood expected to portray?
Carried  to  its  logical  conclu
sion, characters would have to
be nameless (names show ethnic origin, and often religious
beliefs), faceless, and naked
(the clothes might not carry
union labels). Their actions
should always be good, and
kind, and Assisi-pure.
HOMOSEXUALITY
To make matters worse, thi3
attitude extends into the other
arts. "A View From the
Bridge," by Arthur Miller, has
been banned from the London
stages because of references to
homosexuality. And remember
Vancouver's plunge into purification when it banned "Tobacco
Road?" Henry Miller's greatest works cannot be bought in
Canada or the United States.
Architects are still asked to
design "something with Greek
columns," and artists are commissioned to paint a Christ with
"blond hair, blue eyes, and typically Anglo-Saxon features."
How can a culture flower in
a climate characterized by a
criticism of details and ignorance of the basic issues oi Form,
Texture, Integrity and Truth?
Frank Lloyd Wright called this
phenomenon "mobacracy."
What H. L. Menken called it
would give Iratus heart failure.
But we think it has been
around too long. We yield to
no man the right to think for
ourselves.
Come And Get It
Praises Be To The C B C;
'Gooseberry's' Made It
By TONY GAMBRILL
For those fortunate viewers
who can only pick up CBUT
on their television screens, a
new, all-Canadian, wide open
space adventure series will be
appearing before 'your bleary
eyes in the very near future.
I refer to "The Adventures
of Radisson and Grossie . .
(anyway, old gooseberry to use
the more familiar misnomer)".
This is the story of two dirty,
double-crossing, thieving fur
traders who operated a mink-
for-drink racket around the
Hudson Bay. Those were the
good old days when Cecil B.
de Mille handn't discovered
Hollywood yet and papooses
ran wild on the site of the Empress Hotel.
ALLEZ   VITE
The Canadian Broadcasting
Company, sticking monotonously close to the truth, are
even now paying off the last
of the cast of thousands used
in the series. Before long, the
cry "mush, you huskies" and
roughly translated: "allez vite,
vous chiens de la neige" will
echo through your bathroom,
particularly if you have your
TV set in there, and thc neighbourhood kids will start selling beads to thc American
tourists.
But enough of this idle
speculation. The problem on
hand today, students, is that
once again British Columbia is
left out of the limelight, once
again it has been proved that
Canada ends at Winnipeg, once
again our Western heritage
has been thrown in our faces
(and without a cry of 'smear'
from Premier Bennett, or
doesn't he read the TV news?).
What is the answer to this new
aspect of the old problem?
ELVIS THE PELVIS
The Ubyssey, in conjunction
with the Blubber Bay Historical Society, is presently filming "Load Up Your Muskets,
Me, the Indians Want To
Trade," a television drama of
the Old West in 645 episodes
depicting the peaceful intrusion of the white man into
God's gift to the Social Credit
Party (formerly known as
British Columbia). The production will star Premier Bennett as Long John Silver, Jean
Howarth as Sadie Thompson,
Don .labour as Rin-Tin-Tin,
and Elvis Presley as Man Friday.
Roughly, the series will
bring to the screen such in
foresting historical material as
the Great Fire in Chilliwack,
the notorious Victoria Tea
Party (not to be confused with
the All-Night Party), an intimate look at the lives and
wives of James Douglas, the
founding of the first home for
unwed mothers, the Battle of
Lost Lagoon, and a brief
glimpse of the Hanging Judge
as a pioneer evangelist.
These are just a few of fie
moments of British Columbia
history that will leave you
breathless. As a special bonus,
episodes 237 to 323 will be
taken up with a description of
the beginning of the cold storage industry in the province.
Settings have been selected
in loco, Point Roberts (the part
where Captain Vancouver does
a little white-slaving), Spanish
Banks and Socred Cut (formerly Chetwynd's Bluff-.
UBC CAMERA
Thousands of UBC students
have been engaged for the
series to be completed for
B.C.'s centenary. Working on
a five million dollar budget
voted for the project by the
students under "Miscellaneous" last year, the filming
crew can be seen most days
of the week hunched over a
Brownie Camera in the Men's
Showers plotting clever angle
shots and posing pioneer
cheesecake.
So "Davy Crockett" and
"Radisson and what-his-name"
arc things of the past, as The
Ubyssey again proves that
money is no object, crime
doesn't pay, elephants never
forget, and numerous other
hoary sayings. A usually reliable informant recently revealed, "The Ubyssey and this
television series are the two
biggest th.'.n^a to appear shice
Gina Lollobrigad.r" WILLING AND ABLE volunteers line up
to give blood. Don't forget you could get
caught with your slide rule down or slip
in the manure that the Aggies plan to dump
in front of the Engineering hut and need a
transfusion. By donating you you build up
a reserve in case of future need. Who knows
you may get your own blood back. So exchange your blood for a coke, a smoke, and
a kiss at the Armouries today . . .
UBC Bleeds Right Along
With The Goriest Of Campi
By BARRIE HALE
"Blood! Blood?" quavered
the little freshctte, shrinking
lower into her convertible,
"What do they want with my
blood?"
"First they take my money,
then they want my blood! What
will they take fgrom me next?"
A unhealthily red-nosed individual, clad only in beard and
rope sandals snickered lewdly
at this last remark.
Genial, gentlemanly Bob
Tulk, co-chairman of the Blood
Drive, was standing nearby,
proudly displaying a punctured
vein and intoning forthrightly
to the passers-by: "And you,
sirrah, have you bled yet?"
"Listen baby-doll," rasped
the bearded one, sidling up,
"let's you and me go over to the
library    and    deface    Biology
texts."
"Oh I can't," she lisped pettishly, "They want me to give
blood." She shuddered prettily
and made a move.
"Ahagh," sheered the beaver,
"all a feelthy commerce plot.
They want red ink for their ledgers. I foxed 'em." He strutted about, taping his forearm.
"I slipped a tomato up my
sleeve."   He cackled hidiously.
"Fie, Sirrah, Fie!" cried
Tulk, who had overheard. "It
is because of people like you
that some poor anemic child
may die for want of blood.
Because of you that we are
shamelessly behind our quota.
What sort of man are you that
you will deny this priceless
gift of life to some small child?
What, sir, what?"
"I didn't know what I was
doing," cringed the beard. "I'll
do as you say."
"There's a god fellow," said
Tulk, luxuriously squeezing
his bulbous red nose. "Now
I want you to go in there and
BLEED!"
"We get quite a few like
that every year," smiled Tulk.
"Some folks just don't realize
how good it feels to have a
good bleed every now and
again."
Suddenly the beard emerged
from the armories, a changed
man. His step was brisk, his
gaze steady. A crowd of small
children clamoured around
him, kissing his hands.
"Fine fellow!" cried Tulk.
"How do you feel, man?"
The beard drew himself up
with pride. "Brother, I have
bled," he said quietly.
LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS
by Dick Bibler
Girl Crazy
Auditions
Adaskin Enlivens
Initial Concert
By FRANK JOY
The initial concert of the noon-hour Beethoven series was
a highly entertaining occasion, without any doubt.
To begin with, thc appearance
of Harry Adaskin on any stage
packs a delightful wallop. Harry
talks, moves and looks like a
prizefighter, and when that tough
little middleweight of modulation cracks out his reasons for
loving,music, you listen and love
it.
FEW, MORE GIFTED
There are few people more
gifted in the art of explication
than Horry Adaskin, and anyone
interested in seeing a long-haired
performance get off to a rousing,
football start, should turn out
and watch this tiger operate.
In thc second place, Mr. Sumner bore, throughout his whole
performance, a face of fantastically comical aspect. Fellow listeners will concur, I'm sure, that
only one impression could be
gained from watching that face
through the whole 9th Sonata:
Mr. Sumner was itching to tell
someone a slightly bawdy story.
Waiting eagerly, I noticed with
some disappointment, that during the 15th Sonata he forgot
the joke and turned his attention
with a sense of suspicion, to the
music.
I am convinced, and history
may perhaps affirm, that at that
moment he began to doubt the
authenticity of the composition.
He was a picture of hauteur and
ridicule.
Regretably, during the 3rd
movement, all further possibility
| of concentrating on the music
was shattered by the thrice-
I stealthy entrance of the Ubyssey
photographer, directly on stage.
What seemed most unfair of all
was that he had Sumner at a disadvantage.   He was creeping up
from behind and Sumner couldl
not hear a thing for the racket.
A brutal and unprovoked a
lack was then averted by th«
firm intervention of Harry Adas^
kin. Nevertheless, few of ui
could relax, fearing another at
tempt. People who know, saj
the music was lovely, but I, tc
speak truly, have decided ill
lacked "mission."
for mussoc's pro-
Gershwin's "Girl
being    held    next
Auditions
duction    of
Crazy"    are
week.
Singers are desperately needed for the production to be directed by Harry Price, James
Johnston and Grace MacDonald.
For the past 27 years, Mussoc
productions have been of the
highest calibre. Thc society is
in danger of losing its high
standard this year, however, if
the SOS for singers is not answered.
So if you would like to sec
your name on the program, rush
right over to the Mussoc clubroom, behind the Brock, and
sign up.

The following budget is my proposal of what is the most

and revenue from sports and activities adds a like amount.
With the outstanding bank loan for erection of the Brock

will this year be handling nearly one half a million dollars.

Council Polic
The policies of the students' Council are traditional,
namely:
(a) To maintain and rnaka
firm student autonomy in its
affairs.
(b) To guard student interests on tho campus, end to pro*
vide as many opportunities for
student {>ciivili»3 and enjoy*
rnont as possible.
Since thc first policy can be
pursued too strongly to the
point where we become bull-
headed about co-operation with
the Administration and Faculty, care must be exercised to
determine when it is best to
"go it alone" and when it is
best to heed good advice. For
student autonomy is a two-
edged sword. It carries with it
freedom and responsibility—
not only to the student body,
but to the welfare and good
name of the University itself.
The second policy includes
everything from ensuring that
student use of Brock Hall it
not interfered with, to increas-
ing coverage on our Accident
Benefit plan.
Regarding these tenets as
our guide in managing the
A.M.S. for 1956 and 1957, we
are undertaking many plans
to fulfill our responsibilities
both to the students and to the
University general.
(1) Our main concern is the
compensation of the Brock extension. Schedule for opening
next March, the new wing will
contain a Games room with
billiard and ping-pong tables;
special club facilities for Filmsoc. Hamsoc, Radsoc, Mamooks, Camera and Photography Club; Alumni offices; further lounge and dance areas:
Art Gallery; Barber Shop; enlarged College Shop and Totem offices. Planned by last
year's Council, the job falls to
us to arrange financing of this
$310,000 structure. Total cost
including interest will be
around $360,000. A colored
Sketch of the new wing is in
South Brock Hall. Mr. B. C.
Binning is planning the interior decor.
Accident
Benefit Fund:
(2) Plans exist to extend our
Benefit Fund privileges. As
you know, we run an Accident
Benefit fund on campus to aid
those who are injured while
participating in campus activities. This is not an insurance
plan guaranteeing aid to the
injured, but this is a fund
from which you may receive
aid upon application. All
claims are decided upon by
our    Accident   Benefit   Fund
Committee. Sixty-five cents
per student goes into this fund
each year, and while we cannot offer every kind of coverage we would like, each year
we try to expand a little.
For instance, this year we
will be prepared to make payment on eyeglasses broken
while participating in an organized university function in
which it is necessary to wear
eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Future plans call for extending the benefit to cover accidents sustained while skiing
while you are a student at
U.B.C, and our ultimate aim
,is  to  be  able  to   extend   the
benefit to cover any injury
whatsoever, no matter how
or when it is caused, to students as long as they are registered at U.B.C.
Student
Facilities:
(3) Each year a sum calculated on the basis of 65 cents
per student is put into a fund
which we call Student Facilities. This fund enables us to
provide increased facilities and
improved benefits to the student body.
One such improvement was
turning the Double Committee
Room in South Brock Hall into
a Television room, and for this
purpose, a 24-inch TV set has
been purchased and the room
will be open until 10 p.m.
every night.
All requests from clubs for
equipment and furnishings are
applied against this club.
Athletics:
(4) Our plan is to press for a
Western Canadian Inter-Collegiate Athletic Union. If
Manitoba can come through
with a football team, I am
assured that we will be in a
Canadian league within two
years. However, until Manitoba does come through with a
team, neither Saskatchewan.
Alberta or U.B.C. is willing
to play on only a 3-team basis.
Until that time, however,
we are planning a thorough
investigation into our present
athletic programme. This
mainly football, for we feel
it is time to do things right
in  football.
Public
Relations:
Feeling that one of our
many duties is to encourage
student interest in university activities and to promote
goodwill off the campus, the
Students' Council is planning
to produce a half-hour Public
Relations movie. Thic movie
will show the various facets
of student life on the campus,
plus a full run-down on the
academic courses offered here.
It is planned that this movie
will be circulated amongst all
the high schools in the province, and will be shown to
interested groups in Vancouver to generate interest in and
goodwill for the University.
A further step along this
line is being taken by various
students along with our P.R.O.
They are presently negotiating to present seven student-
produced half-hour shows over
CBUT this coming year. These
shows will be completely
student actors, musicians,
artists and student films, and
will not only concern itself
with UBC activity, but will
also show what students can
do in the field of drama, music
and art.
Student
Wages:
The Students' Council is also planning to press for a
raise in the minimum wage
for  students  working   on   the
campus. All costs to students
have gone up these past years,
and we feel that the present I
minimum of 75 cents an hour
is too low to be of any help
to the students. Th,e aim will I
be to raise the minimum wage|
to $1.00 per hour.
College
Shop:
The   opening   of   the   nev
Brock wing will see increasec
facilities of the Collage Shopi
and   because   of   this,   great]
plans are being laid to expanc
the line  of goods which the
College Shop now handles. Ir
the future we hope the Col\
lege Shop will supply nearlj
all the needs of students or
the campus.
Homecoming
An experiment this yeaj
will be held with the Horn*
coming Dance. In an atiemp|
to bring civilized drinklnj
back to the campus, the All
umni Association has agreed^
to invite the graduating clasJ
to its own dance which will
be held in Brock Hall. At ihi{
dance, th** Alumni Associal
tion will run a bar and it ij
hoped that the mature use of
this bar will prove to the Ui
iversity officials that the stuc
•nts can behave lhemselve|
properly when liquor is allo\
ed on the campus.
Student

What's Elvis, fresley?" a 3

wanted to know." What is the
right word," snarled a Philosophy major sitting near him. He's
got a power to draw crowds thru
something but it's certainly not
this." He held up his copy of the
New Testament. Both boys declined to give their names.
Meanwhile the few Presley
fans in existence at UBC were
rallying to his defence. "I like
"Love Me Tender" and "Don't
Be Cruel," Dianne Waters, 2 H.
Ec, said. 'Elvis sounds really
sincere there."
"His music has a nice beat,"
Jerry Kingsley, 2 Arts, said. He's

SEX APPEAL
Presley's sex appeal? "What

lots," Bob Rowan, 1 Arts, countered. He's a good money maker
too," he added.
"He's not exactly good looking
but he's got piles of oomph,"
Frances Manning, 1 Arts, agreed.
"I like him, but I don't like his
style of singing," she explained.
And UBC's Jazz Society's
views? "As far as the showman
goes, Presley's good," Jack Reynolds, Jazz Soc President said.
"But music-wise he's absolutely
nothing," he said.
Presley's not a guitar player,
he professes to be a singer, but I
feel he has a long way to go before he even begins to make it
in either field," Reynolds said.
Paul Seder, Musical Appreciation Society President agreed
with Reynolds. "The Ubyssey
editorial was pitched too strong
for something that has no interest for students," Seder said.
"The lack of responsibility Presley fans exhibit is the only aspect of his singing that really
disturbs me," he said.

Filmsoc Portrays Campus
Life For Future Students
Filmsoc is now working on a
full length documentary of the
University in conjunction with
the Students Council, which
will be shown in schools
throughout the province.
Embarking on all out production this year, Filmsoc has been
doing CBC newsreel shots and
films for athletic teams. They
are now working in conjunction with Ian Smyth for seven
UBC shows to be shown on CBC
TV.
The Production Department,
headed by George Pearson, has
bought new equipment this year
which is worth over $3000. With
the use of the Brock extension
Filmsoc is waiting to set up
and really go a head in production.
The new equipment, purchased in August and early September, is completely a student
venture financed by students'
council monies. It will be paid
off over a period of years.
Filmsoc hoping some time
in the future to be able to
do its own printing and p»o-
cessing.   At   present   they   are
handicapped by lack of equipment and poor working space.
They are now using a ticket
booth in the auditorium for production of films, newsreels and
features.
A film appreciation club in
1937-38, Filmsoc became known
in its present form with complete editing and sound facilities started in 1946, purchase
of arc-projectors in 1947 and the
acquisition of a camera in 1950.
President Bill McAllister stated
"we were either going to spend
a lot of money or we were going
to call it quits" this year.

The past ten years have been good to British Columbia.
They've brought new businesses and jndiisMes^ new jobs,
bigger pay cheques, better living.
One of the big reasons for B.C.'s growth is a
plentiful supply of cheap electricity. Electricity to expand
old industries and attract new ones.   Electricity tq
bring better living to our homes.
During these ten busy years, the B.C. Electric
has invested some $300,000,000 to more than double the
supply of electrical power available ten years ago.
With dozens of new projects under way, and
more planned, the B.C. Electric continues to invest
in B.C.'s future. It's doing its part to make
the next ten years just as bright,
or brighter, than the last.

World News Starts Today
By CAROL GREGORY
CUP EDITOR
MARGARET MEAD
NEW JERSEY.—Dr. Margaret Mead, world-famed anthropologist, speaking at Princeton
University, accused today's college students with complacent
assumption of status quo.
She warned that "students
are making their future plans
under the assumption that the
next two decades will see little
change in the present national
way of life."
She deplored the "present
stagnant ambition to become a
junior executive in a large,
well-established corporation,"
which, she declared, was the
chief lifetime goal of most undergraduates.
A person planning for such
a goal, she said, would have to
assume there would be few
social changes during the next
20 years.
A review of the past two decades, she continued, would
show that great changes have
taken place in the U.S., and can
be expected to continue to happen.
Among the changes she noted
were the nation's increased importance in international relations, the general turn toward
religion, and the present trend
of earlier marriages and larger
families.

ALBERTA AMUSED
CUP.—The Gateway, student
newspaper of the University of
Alberta, reported October 5th,
that "Student Council members

chuk's report on the Pacific
Students Presidents Association
meeting held in Vancouver last
spring."

SHORT RANGE POLICIES
CUP.—THE DEAN of Education at the University of Manitoba blames the "short-range
policies since the British North
America Act" for the shortage
of teachers today.
CUP.—DR. M. E. La ZERTE.
newly appointed Dean of Education, replaces Dean Neville V.
Scarfe, Dean of UBC's new
School of Education.
In an interview with The
Manitoban, U of M's student
newspaper, Dr. Milton advocated "that we make a degree
compulsory for a teacher."
He said the lack of teachers
today is "absolutely clear and
evident" and "of over 100,000
teachers in Canada, 10,000 have
no higher qualifications than
Grade 11."
"We tend to solve shortages
too easily. How? By lowering
the standards of a teacher. This
is a step in the wrong direction," he said.
"What we must do is make
teaching a profession," he said,
and added that "I do believe in
'certificate holders' ".
In closing, he said he believes
"that ultimately, in perhaps 25
years, we will be able to say
that every teacher in our Canadian system has a university
degree."

THINK OR SINK
CUP.—DOCTORS of Engineering, Medicine and Arts and
Science at McGill University
recently fought to prove himself worthiest of survival at the
third annual "Think or Sink"
professors' raft debate, Doctor
Chipman, representing Engineering, declared the Engineer
"to be one of the lowest forms
of the human being, "pointing
out that from this position, 'he
had the furthest to rise and
therefore the greatest future,"
making the engineering species
of society "the group most worthy of survival."
Dr. Scott of the Medical Department proved MD's superiority by pointing out that "the
Engineer, will, in a few years,
be quite adequately replaceable
by one of his own electronia
computing machines."
Professor Culliton, representing Arts and Science, pointed
out "the root of the university
system is its school of arts and
science" and charged that "it's
only the saps that go into the
branches."

LIBERAL EDUCATION
CUP — NEW YORK —A two
year survey of the status of the
liberal arts in American undergraduate professional schools is
being undertaken by the new
Columbia University Institute
for the Study of Higher Education.
The study is to be directed
by Dr. Earl J. McGrath, former
Commissioner of Education of
the United States.
Dr. McGrath stated that
"most professional and technical schools can well afford to
give more time to liberal education. Whether the future engineer can see his work and
profession in broad relation to
our whole culture and world
developments will depend in
part on his grasp of the social
sciences and humanities."
