Election Machines
A well known UBC student who recently indicated he
was planning to run for a Council seat said Wednesday he
wished to withdraw his name.'
The reason? He discovered that an Engineering scholar
and Fraternity athlete had similar intentions toward the
same council seat.
He disgustedly asked: "What chances have I against the
whole Engineering Faculty? ... or against a Fraternity campaign?
He may have exaggerated the case a little, hut we wonder if his remarks are the reflection of many persons on this
campus who could be excellent leaders if given the popular vote.
In the past the Ubyssey has criticised Council "machines and Ivory Tower tactics. But behind the Ivory Tower
lies an election. If that is dominated by a machine, we can
hardly expect candidates to appear at election time.
There is a solution, but it is, unfortunately, an unsatisfactory one. We could ask Council to appoint a nominating
committee, a committee to suggest the names of students
who are capable of being leaders.
But, even with backing of Council, could these students
stand up against the prodigious organization set up by the
Engineers or by the Fraternities for any one of their own
candidates?
It is too idealistic to hope that ASUS will ever become
sufficiently organized to seriously rival EUS. It is impractical to asume that Arts students will ever back anything
or anybody enmasse because, unlike Engineering students
they have a vast divergence of beliefs and interests.
it is equally idealist and impractical to suppose that any
non-fraternity organization would or could back any single
candidate with the poster-work, planning, and campaign
gimmicks that Fraternities provide for their chosen candidates.
We are not surprised at the apathy shown on this campus
toward elections. The fact that only four persons appeared
at the candjdates meeting on Tuesday-two of them Engineers-can only be regarded as the natural outcome of
election machines.
We are not opposing organized campaigns. We are opposing organized voters who vote not according to merit of
a candidate, but according to whether he is "in" or "out" of
their fold and according to his extra-curricular affiliations.
Regroup and Advance
The Academic Symposium records another first for UBC.
We admire the thought behind the symposium and the work
that has gone to make it a reality.
The dichotomy between UBC's particular brand of academic and extra-curricular life is unique, and, as such, demands original ways of analysis.
In essence, those on the symposium are worried that in
the helter-skelter of our God-like "autonomy" we are losing a bit of the value of '•university."
This is an ivory tower effort: and one of the meist worthwhile that this fledgling university has attempted. The in-
tere*| shown in the weekend has partially vindicated the
ideas of the pee>ple who originated it.
There are a few at this University who are worried over
the close-to one hundred competing clubs on campus; with the
eoncemmiitant lack of rapport with the academic side.
This is an "agonizing reappraisal"—we hope that it will
not only result in thought on the matter, but also produce
.dt dudes and plans which will re-orient our way of university

THE    UBYSSEY

Why No Interest Among
Students In Dramatic Art ?
On Tuesday and Wednesday
of last week the University
Workshop*" Production, under
the auspices of the English Department, presented a drama-
tized-reading, with decor and
costume, of Shakespeare's
"Richard III."
Of 7,623 students registered
at the University, not more
than 100 attended. I was profoundly shocked at this indifference, but am even more
deeply concerned to understand the reason for it.
The remainder of the audience was made up of members
of the general public, but it
was not primarily for their
benefit that the production was
undertaken, it was presented
as a contribution to the cultural life of the students of this
University.
STAY AWAY
Why did the students stay
away in thousands?
The Ubyssey and the press
gave good advance notices to
the production, it was announced in English classes and by
the Radio Society, posters were
placed in all strategic places
on    the   campus — there was
By DOROTHY SOMERSET
Associate Professor of English
plenty of opportunity for students to become aware of it.
The University Workshop
Production has behind it a record of "good shows," therefore
no foregone conclusion of failure should have been a factor.
Was it fear of the experimental nature of a dramatized-
reading?
Then are there only one hundred students at this University who care enough about
theatre or about the greatest
of all English writers to take
a gamble? No spectator in a
theatre is under obligation to
approve a production in all or
any of its parts, but surely the
witnessing of a play and the
subsequent clash of opinions
on the merits of the play, acting and production are a stimulating means of enlarging cultural horizons and of sharpening the faculties of critical
appreciation.
JEALOUS FOR STUDENTS
In 1955 I returned from a
year spent in studying theatre
in France and England. I came
back jealous for Canadian students — jealous because they
did not, like their English and
French counterparts, have the
opportunity of seeing, from
their early youth, frequent productions of the great plays of
their greatest playwrights. I
imagined in our Canadian students a hunger for an acquaintance with our magnificent cultural heritage in theatre. This
was one of the reasons for the
presentation of "Richard III."
But it seems I was mistaken,
that among students of the University of British Columbia
there is no such hunger, not
even curiosity. Can this be so?
I find it hard to believe.
But then, why did the stu-
dents stay away in thousands
from a production of "Richard
III" which, for some, may be
the only opportunity in a lifetime of seeing it. Much is at
stake in the answer to this
question and I am deeply concerned to know what that answer is,
May I invite any and all sufficiently interested students to
write me, in care of the Department of Extension, and
give me their personal analysis
of the situation.

Vultures?
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Can nothing be done about
the damn photographers who
stride so self-righteously into
our noon-hour concerts at their
own convenience? And must
they, after successfully distracting the audience, stand in
a corner and pick at their
bloody camera lenses like vultures'.'
They are obviously not in-
terested in music, or they
would be' present at the' beginning e>(' the programme; and
obvious too i.s the fact that they
consider photography a higher
form of art than music.
It cannot be' over emphasized how unimportant photography is te> fine art.

Masculine Type Is All
Fed Up With Library
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
I have a question for you and I bet you a hatful of tacks
you can't answer it. How come the girls have got a common
room in the,Arts Building and the boys haven't?
This is just typical of the way the university treats the
male student. In general, we get nothing but scorn and bad
service. I think it should be kept in mind that its the male
student who needs the education to provide homes for all
these future housewives. You can notice the difference in
the way the library staff acts toward men. A girl, or an effeminate looking boy, gets immediate attention, but a masculine-type man is just overlooked.
There's room for a great deal of improvement here, and
I hope you think it worthy enough to campaign with editorials and stories for us. University, after all, is a man's world.
Fed right up.
(Always happy to oblige its readers, the Ubyssey here
submits its opening volley in the editorial campaign which
"Fed-up" requests, courtesy of Barrie Hale).
The female she is fawned on,
The flit gets service, too,
But  what  of the male.
Loyal and forthright and  true,
What  of  the  male?
The female has her common room,

But   what   of   the   male,

What of the male'?

<> By BARRIE HALE
"Let's see it, man."
"Hey, just the greatest, man!"
"Cool,   Let's feel it, man."
We bent lower over our cup
of tar, scracely believing our
ears. What was this purple verbiage; what this desire for tactile sensation? We listened
again.
"Where'd you get it, man?"
"What'd you pay?"
"Oh just the greatest, man!"
Our heart sank. Our stomach
rose. Trembling perceptably at
what we might see, we turned
slowly in our seat. Good grief,
we were right! Another fine, upstanding boy had Gone Ivy!
There he stood, looking like
nothing quite so much as a moss-
covered test-tube, zippered, buttoned, and strapped into the
garment that has done more toward furthering the ludicrousity
of the human figure since the
loin cloth —- the three-button
Ivy League suit. And he was
smiling; he was proud — he had
GONE IVY, and he wore the
most potent badge of artificial
superiority since the inception
of the Black Shirt.
The wearers of this sartorial
sacrament fall into four categories — all are pretty funny looking, but the funniest is the Bastard, or Shy Ivy Man.
The shy man took one look
at the Ivy Look when it first
came out, shuddered delicately,
and bought himself another
Hudson's Bay Cashmire. Subsequently, however, when Ivy
became popular, in the same
way that TR-2's and Scotch-on-
the-Rocks became popular, he
bought himSeif a couple of tab-J
collar shirts, a pair of strap-back I
slacks, and ended up looking as
if he had gathered his wardrobe
from the Hungarian Relief
Drive.
The other is the college-life-
is-fat-liie Ivy type. He has al
collection of MJQ records, pic-.j
turcsque hangovers, and most j
frequently wears tweed caps ofj
pin cushion size and sport jackets that seem to consist of dozens!
of green plush bell cords sewn j
together. '
The third and most frightening variety, we mumbled, cinching up our Jimmy D$an dungarees, i.s the young Cash McCall
Ivy Man. His suits are subtly
patterned and fully buttoned.
Customarily, he spends his
evenings crooning over a waxen
idol of Sloan Wilson, preparatory to making the Big Move to
Buick and marrying Marjorie
Morningslar.
The latter, and most pathetic,
is the sensitive, young, beaten-
by - a - crassly-aqiusitive society
Ivy 'Man. lie wants to major in
Primitive Societies, but is going
into Law because Dad expects
it. tie- is a haunted, beaten man,
forced to read his copy of The'
Nation concealed between the
pages of  Fortune.
Thc Ivy Look, indeed!    A pox
on it!
Grad Class
Battle Looms
An inter-faculty political battle is shaping up in connection
with graduation class elections.  ■
Engineers will attempt to regain their traditional dominance of the grad class executive by packing the elections
meeting Friday noon in Physics 200.
Members of the  1957 gradu-^- "—
ating classes in all faculties will
meet to elect a President, Vice-
President, Treasurer, Secretary
and Social Convenor to administer grad  class activities.
Executive committee must appoint class historian, prophet,
valedictorian, as well as arrange
the round of social events that
includes the infamous annual
"Booze Cruise."
Last year, Lawyers and Commercemen outnumbered Engineers at the meeting, and ended
traditional redshirt control by
approving a resolution that required inter-faculty representation on the executive committee.
Engineers are reportedly
ready to gather en masse at
Friday's meeting to force through
a resolution nullifying last year's
enactment.
OFFICIALS OF THE SCHOOL of Agriculture warn students that harsh measures will be taken if more displays
from the Tenth Anniversary Celebration aye missing. Miss
Judy Gazzard, a model in the display at the down-town
Art Gallery, also warns that the harsh measures will be
taken if she is stolen.

— more than double the usual
number — were expelled this

standards on their Christmas
