 Simian's Doubts
*.
PETERSON SETS UBC FEARS AT REST
If UBC raised five million
dollars from private donors
tomorrow, thc Provincial Government would match it immediately, Education Minister
Les Peterson assured the Ubyssey Thursday night.
The assurance from Victoria
came after Opposition Leader
Robert Strachan raised the
question of "how soon?" for
the recently announced matching giant for UBC ln the Legis-
legislature Wednesday.
Speaking  in the budget de-
bate.Kfr. Strachan questioned
the authority of the Provincial
Government to pay out the
monios promised in the matching grant announcement. Announcement of the five million dollar matching grant for
UBC was made three days after the Budget speech was
read.
"No provision is made in the
(budget speech estimates for
the giving or allocation of any
money for the matching grants,
nor is there any indication that
new legislation will be introduced covering these estimates," Mr. Strachan told the
Ubyssey Thursday.
"Because of this, at the appropriate time, I asked the
Minister of Education in the
Legislature under what authority the Government's portion
of thc matching grant would
be made," he said.
It would be possible, the
Opposition Leader said, for the
Government to "get away with"
paying the matching grant mon
ies out of the $10,000,000 promised to the University by thc
Government in 1955.
Mr. Peterson laughingly denied the suggestion in an interview Thursday. "I am advised
that I have ample authority
to pay the funds," he said.
"The University has nothing
to worry about. There will
definitely be $5,000,000 in addition to the $10,000,000 grant."
The matching grant item
was not included in the estimates,   Mr.   Petersen   said,   be
cause the Government did not
expect to have to match any
money raised by UBC this year.
"When I made the announcement, I didn't know the Uni«
versily was going to start a
fund-raising drive this year,"
he said. UBC had, before the
matching grant announcement,
laid plans for a Province-wide
fund-raising campaign that
would be held in 1958, in conjunction   with   B.C.'s  Centen*

From Wenner-Gren
Token   Gift'   Solely   For
Scientific   Research
A "Token milt" ol' 825,000 is lo be donated to the University by Axel Wenner-Gren for scientific research.
At a luncheon held Wednesday at the Faculty Club, Dr.
Axel   Wenner-Gren,   Swedish   financier,   announced   his   wish :
to donate  the money  towards  scientific  research. [
"Research," he stated, "is now my chief interest.  I wish I
to promote my foundation work as much as I can. This is what
I now want to do most." Mr. Wenner-Gren toured the Engineering faculty where he was shown new experiments in applied sciences ,
Mr. Wenner-Gren told Pres.
MacKenzie that the University
would be one of the chief benefactors of his Northern development and "perhaps the most
important of my life."
Prof. J. Davies has stressed

Pride Not Prejudice
The ASUS elections did not arouse genuine enthusiasm
on this campus; the ASUS executive has done little to
deserve genuine enthusiasm, and perhaps it can can be vindicated because of the lack of material with which it works. .
But the ASUS elections on Tuesday did produce something about which Arts students can not only be enthusiastic,
but proud.
The production was the election of a student to the Presidency of the Organization who is well known for his Communistic affiliations.
The student is a most efficient, consciencious and knowl-
edgable leader; in short, an ideal President.
The importance of the election is that students voted
according to ability rather than to prejudice. There were no
doubt few voters in the audience who agreed with the candidate's political leanings.
It is laudable that while persons of his affiliation are
openly discriminated against on several U.S. campi, and often
tormented by Canadian publications and the public, University students can still see the advantages of a holder of such
beliefs as an individual can offer to their organization.

Culture Afterall?
It was heartening to hear that although the Famous
Artists have to cancel tickets to the showing of the Grand
Opera Company in Vancouver owing to complications in
Seattle, Vancouverites had bought the house out for the
two-night showing.
This fact combined with the CBC announcement that
a great many of its contributing writers are Vancouverites
indicates that Vancouver may be a cultural centre after all.
It may be a cultural centre despite all apparenty contrary designs of tho Vancouver City Council and the Provincial Government.
The City Council has long been famous for its hive of
inactivity. The Library building has been postponed; Ihe
auditorium has been a municipal football for years and is
beginning to show the dents of wear. The I1CMI' boat Saint
Roche has conlinued lo sit gathering barnacles in the Vancouver Harbour while councillors argued over its cultural
merit and e,agsters from the Royal City attempted to remove
it   from   the   view   of   its   unappreciative   audience.
And, like tho City Council, the Provincial Government
can see little advantage in seriously attempting to encourage
a cultural  life  in this  lair Province.
We had actually begun to suspect that the only persons
concerned with initiating (^' preserving cull lire m these
parts are University aesthetes and the odd cultural hugged
student who periodically decries the lack ol cultural activity
in  B.C.
But it is most h 'ai'tcning to hear that there are others
who can see some  use  in  the "cultural arts.
We mi-hl even hope that the City Council and the
Provincial Government will hear ot these people sometime in
their daily routine, and begin to believe that they exist and
that they care.
Otherwise they might have to believe that such people
vote.
Diefenbaker - Again
What We Need In Canada Is
A Man With Character
There is a criticism one often
feels like making after reading
a UBC editorial and that criticism is — why can't the
Ubyssey say something original?
To be specific, take, for instance, Tuesday's editorial on
Mr.pelfenbaker. (Incidentally
this writer belongs to no political party).
To one who read the Monday
Province editorial, it is only too
obvious where the Ubyssey's
source came from. Of course,
slavishly following another's
ideas is the line of least resistance and hence a very attractive occupation for some who
find thinking for themselves a
taxing and onerous burden.
STATEMENT ILLOGICAL
Let us examine the crux of
the sneering editorial. "Can
the Progressive Conservative
party provide the alternative
government that so many of us
want and need?
The Opposition Leader's performance over the weekend
provided no sure answer; the
old doubts still remain."
This statement is quite illogical. All one has to do is to
look up Mr. Deifenbaker's record over the years (not base a
ELOUISE  HARRISON  (Law  3)
criticism and evaluation of him
on a brief weekend) and one
will see what a dynamic man
and brilliant lawyer he is, and
how much he has done already
for Canada and Canadians.
His valiant advocation of a
Bill of Rights for Canada drawn
in such a way as not to violate
the BNA Act's division of Provincial and Dominion Rights
thereunder, his defense of the
Jehovah Witnesses who were
thrown in prison for exercising
our everyday rights of freedom
of speech (Quebec was NOT the
only province that sought to
deny them this fundamental
right), his compassion towards
and aid given to those suffering
from injustice of any form, are
but a few of his concrete actions that speak for themselves.
Actually no politician not* in
power has done more than Mr.
Diefenbaker has for the little
man, under the limited facilities at his disposal. A look at
his impressive record certainly
makes one confident that when
he is given the reins of government, Canada will indeed be a
country worth staying in.
SNEERING TONE
Re the sneering tone of the
editorial, must we always, when
confronted with an idealist who
seeks to turn high ideals into
action, take refuge in cynicism?
One would think it essentially
a trait of mediocre minds to
decry anything that is lofty or
that tends to uplift the soul
from its pursuit of material
pleasure,
Another thing one must realise, and that is that the mere
using of out-worn labels like
'liberal', 'tory', 'political hooey',
'out-liberal the Liberals', mean
essentially nothing, It is a
man's real character that counts
and it is that alone which infuses a uniqueness into everyday things.
In short, it is Mr. Diefen-
baker's character, his absolute
fearlessness, deep sincerity, integrity, compassion and intense
desire to build Canada in every
way possible, which are the essential ingredients that will
mould the leader.
In answer to the stale editorial, therefore, I think I have
proof enough with which to
support the contention that Mr.
Diefenbaker will make a first
class Prime Minister who will
return Canada to its democratic status. He will be the complete answer to the decadent,
non-democratic regime that
your editorial states "many
young Canadians are heartily
sick of."
Corbett - Extended
Sexual Abstinence Is  The
Answer To Overpopulation
(Editor's note: The following
letter is a commentary on the
extracts printed here recently
from Prof. David Corbett's new
book, "Canada's Immigration
Policy." We remind readers
that the article wa.s an extract.
Many of the commentaries received by readers make further suggestions that were included in the book but not
printed here).
The substance of Professor
Corbett's article on immigration policy is that Canada cannot morally escape the obligation to admit non-whites from
overpopulnted countries. Mow-
ever, if he admits that the
population of the world will
inere.ise by a billion people in
the ik\I L'f) years, and may
double by the year HOIK), I
don't see hew he can seriously
consider Canadian immigration
even as a stopgap,
The number of people Canada c'.uild absorb would nowhere near match the increase
ot population of Asia, and all
thai would he accomplished
would be that Canada would be
reduced lo the Asian level. We
do not want Canada starving,
overpopuhilecl, and reduced to
helplessness with thc rest of
the world.
What Canada must do if she
desires to help is to work toward   halting   the   population
increase of the rest of the
world. Only with staic population will migration and gifts
of machinery to increase production have anv chance of al-
Fences . . .
Editor. Thc Ubyssey:
I am pleased to sec that at

Dept. is fencing off the well-
worn  lawns  on  the   campus.
II is unfortunate that "higher education" has lo be fenced
off like sheep, but perhaps the

Ihe dmriest distance between
every combination of points has
revolted   more  than   one   mind.
The Iremedy hero is not being
treated like sheep, but rather
being unable to appreciate the

things are now the good effects
of acceptance of immigrants
and gifts of grain and machinery arc absolutely lost in the
fantastic yearly increase cf
hungry  mouths.
There is only one solution:
it is nol industrialization, irrigation proqects, gifts of food
or re'ecation of people: it is
sexual abstinence, contraception, abortion, or infanticide.
Education and a rising standard of living also seem to
limit size of family, but to propose this fur most of the world

PANELISTS FIND:
International   Policing
Needed   In   Mid - East
A permanent or semi-permanent international police force is
the only possible solution to the
mid-east crisis if the situation is
not to revert to the former status
quo.
This was the conclusion accepted in principle by the World
University Service - sponsored
panel discussion on the mid-east
crisis, held Thursday.
Professor Geoff Davies asserted that any plan for solution of
the crisis must first resolve fear
on the part of the Great Powers
and secondly settle the Israel-
Arab problem.
He stated, "Suez can never be
returned to control by Western
European powers," and suggested that "the only solution to the
problem is use of international!
control by the United Nations."  j
TWO-PRONGED |
Professor H. F. Ronimois saw;
the degree of Soviet participa-i
tion as a two-pronged attack dir-'
ected towards both Germany and,
the Mid-East. He drew loud ap-j
plause when he said, "The aim,
of the Soviet is to reap where it
has not sown."
"Russian interest can he attributed lo three factors," said Ronimois. First, Russia i.s short of
oil; secondly, Russia could cuf
off Western supply line through j
the Suez Canal; and thirdly, by I
swaying Arab sentiment, she!
could gain enormous strength.
Paul Romeril, who recently
completed a WUSC sponsored
year of study in Turkey, spoke
on the changing role of various
Arab nations in the Mid-East. He
stated the pillars of the Iraq government had been toppled by
Egyptian action in cutting oil
revenues and added that the effect of the Bagdad Pact had also
been reduced.
Romeril also warned of the
Pan-Arab movement now underway in the Arab nations and said
that  it could end the semi-Pro
West attitude which now exists.
OUTCOMES CITED
Dean F. H. Soward, recently
returned from work with the
Canadian delegation of the U.N.
cited three immediate outcomes
of the British and French action
of last fall.
He said it was a shock to
NATO solidarity, a shock to the
solidarity of the Commonwealth
and that it placed great stress
upon Canada's role of middleman between the U.S. and Great
Britain.

thirty-eight special revolvers instead of swords.
Beneath the modernity, however, will lie unscathed all the
wit,  low comedy, and unlikely ^ ig studde(J wUh comic de.
vices, and sparkling characterizations, of whom Sir Toby Belch
and Fabian are typical. Plots,
counter-plots, counter - counter

FINAL APPEARANCE
"Twelfth Night" will feature

Everytime you pick up a
magazine these days you find
another cocktail recipe. Even
the Women's Christian Temperance Union publication "Par-
chcr"' tells of wonderful things
you can do with tomato juice
and yokes of eggs.
With Unprohibition going
full blast and bootleggers making as much money as they
did during the original Prohibition, the Ubyssey is proud,
and almost fearful, to present
six original cocktail recipes.
Liquid Dry Rot—Mix well 2
oz. gin, 1 oz. absinthe and a
pinch of alum. Next evaporate
and condense the steam carefully. Pour the result of your
distillation into pumice stone
breakers, and serve.
Woman's Dorms Delight —
Stir 1 oz. Chanel Number 4
(fermented Pier 17) into 6 oz.
champagne. Top off with a
sprig of poison ivy. While mixing mutter "Jimmy Dean was
really keen but Elvis Presley's
keener." This cocktail should
be drunk preferably while the
Don chants weird mating calls.
The Late  Night Final—Lob
4 tranquillizers into an egg cup
full of Scotch from a distance
of five feet. For a more powerful drink lob the pills from
seven feet. The tranquillizer
pills can be bought from any
reputable medical supply outlet or Igor ("monorail, monorail, who's got the monorail")
Wenner-Gren, your neighbourhood  profiteer.
Skidroad No. 1.—Take a gallon of canned heat, a dash of
lemon extract, a can of suede
shoe polish (pref. blue). Simmer
the canned heat until it becomes cloudy then add the extract. Boil the polish, skim
off the froth and stir into the
cocktail taking care to stand
well back from the container.
Cool the concoction by dipping
the container in the water off
Gore Avenue Wharf. Do not
leave unattended.
Spanish Banks Sunriser—Fill
a White Satin bottle three-
quarters full of black coffee.
Gently lower a couple of aspirin on to the surface and
watch them dissolve. Pour in
4 ozs. pure alcohol (ethyl).
Drink. Now take her home and
meet her mother. If you've met
her mother before substitute
methyl  for  the  ethyl  alcohol.
Morality   Squad  Special   —
(No guarantee on this one if
you already have a police record because it may sew up
your schedule for the next ten
years.) Mix (i ozs. bay rum,
6 ozs. fermented banana oil,
a packet of yeast, and a quart
of tequila in a pressure cooker.
Next take a good fix (something dependable like heroin)
and then breath deeply from
the cooker. Now. do you remember that little blonde that
lives on the floor below? Well,
if you climb out on the fire
escape and . . .

Toronto
Students
Fall Hard
Student leaders at University
of Toronto are red-faced after
the student newspaper, the Varsity, pulled the wool over the
eyes of the whole campus.
The March 7 issue of the undergraduate daily carried the
screaming headline: "SAC (Students' Council) Seizes Gag
Issue!" The story stated that
Students' Councillors burned all
but fourteen of the Varsity's
"gag issue", because the material
was "libellous and in bad taste."
Varsity offices were deluged
with phone calls from newspapers, nearly 100 students signed a
'freedom of the press" petition
demanding redress of the censorship.
Headlines on the following
day's edition, however, shrieked,
"Don't believe everything you
read in the newspapers." Proud
editors went on to explain how
the previous day's edition was
actually the gag issue; no "censorship" had. actually occurred.
Few had read the fine print in
the March 7 masthead. It read:
Suffer yourselves to be blamed
if you believe this issue. It's a
gag. Nothing was confiscated
and nothing was burned. This
paper isn't right, it's a beauty."
that the noise will not cease before exams. Construction is not
expected to be finished until the
end of April.
Librarian Dr. Rothstein explained "we had to start now or
not at all; we didn't have much
choice in the matter of time."
Exam results may therefore be
blamed on an impeded shipment
of steel from Great Britain.

Expansion "Slow"
PRINCETON, N. J. (CUP) —
Princeton University Administrative Secretary Edgar M. Gem-
mell Wednesday labelled "the
seeking out of capital resources
(for a university) a slow process."
Oemmoll was commenting on
a program of soliciting capital
grants called the Princeton Master Plan for Expansion, a plan
similar to UBC's Capital Grants
Campaign.
Initiation of construction on
Ihe Princeton campus of such
facets of the Master Plan a.s dormitories, buildings for,music and
architecture. a n engineering
quad and athletic facilities depends on the receipt of large
capital gifts.
The university has so far received only a large gift for the
proposed engineering qviad-

EVERY STUDENT NEEDS
LIFE INSURANCE!!
BECAUSE you need to begin your program
NOW—-the student who enters his life career
with a financial independence program ALREADY STARTED will, other things equal,
achieve financial independence sooner — and
on a higher ultimate level. NFCUS LIFE provides this "starter" at a price you can afford.
BECAUSE you need to insure the investment in your education -— to protect those
who have protected you. Every year, through
death by accident or natural causes, there
are students who will never return. If someone has sacrificed to help you through University, be sure they are not left with expenses and loans to pay.
BECAUSE only thus can you protect your
"insurability." Insurance bought now guarantees your right to permanent insurance for
life regardless of changes in your health.
WHY THE NFCUS LIFE PLAN
IS YOUR FIRST CHOICE
Remarkable savings achieved by NFCUS mass
buying power — an advantage gained for
University students through their association
together in NFCUS.
Tailored for University students and available exclusively through affiliation with
NFCUS.
Thc group principle brings equal protection to
NFCUS students of all ages — up to 35! Non-
Canadian sludents are also eligible if attending Canadian Universities.
A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY
Your affiliation in NFCUS makes it possible
for you to own $5,000, SI 0,000, 825,000 or
EVEN MORE life insurance on your own exclusive plan covering you during your years
at University and several years thereafter if
necessary, at an exceedingly low rate, — then,
when you are working in your chosen field
(or practicing your piofesion) and are financially established, you begin lo pay the premiums for permanent Ordinary Life Insurance
— also at guaranteed low rates.

Lester Pearson Eliminated
By Upstart Chilliwack High
Magee Quintet Folds;
Just Edge Abbotsford
By KEN WIEBE
If your nerves are poor or your kidneys weak, don't come
out to the B.C. High School Basketball Tournament.
Thrills are a dime-a-dozen, with the occasional upset
thrown in.
In the first round of the tournament Wednesday, with 2000
screaming fans raising the Memorial Gymnasium roof, Chilliwack out-hustled highly favoured defending champion Lester
Pearson, 60-54, to douse their
hopes for a second Provincial
championship.
In the same round of play,
cheering fans saw Fraser Valley champion Abbotsford come
from behind an eleven-point deficit at three-quarter time to get
within  one point of Magee.
DA BIG ONE
But the thriller, da big one,
came in the second round yesterday. Kamloops Red Devils
played Abbotsford, who were
fighting to remain in the tournament. With referees calling
fouls left and right, and with thc
Abbotsford pride, 6 foot 7 inch
Barry Forest warming the bench
for at least half the game because of fouls, Kamloops slowly
but surely gained and strengthened a lead on the hapless Ab-
botsfordites.
PRIEBE SCORES
The Devils led 15-10 at the end
of the first quarter, and 27-17 at
the half; then, settling into an
effective two-three zone defence.
Abbotsford stopped their attack
and sharp-shooting Len Priebe
who scored 14 points in the game
went to work. The score was
34-32 for Kamloops at three
quarter time.
That's when fouls began to
pay off for Abbotsford. Little
Tommy Johnson (5' 6") who endeared himself to many with his
terrific hustle and his spectacular jumping (he out-jumped
practically every "Devil" on
throw-ins, swished two free-
throws with half a minute left in,
the game, to tie it up, 33.38.
You   think   that    was     close0
With seconds left in the overtime
period    and    Kamloops   leading,
40-38, Johnson sank another two ,
free-throws to tie it all up again.
In the second overtime period
the rattled Devils became careless. They fouled consistently
and Abbotsford scored five free-
throws to win thc game, 4fi-4'.J.
Johnson sank the- last basket of
the game.

Although we have been right

Abbotsford should be over their

team; Cumberland over Magee,
started poorly but are strong.

Laurie Vietch sank eight consecutive free throws against conference champs PLC to establish
a new mark for consecutive free
throws in one game.
Ed Wilde also set a mark for
percentage of foul shots made,
dunking  77.4%.
Lyall Levy was voted the inspirational leader for 1957.
NOW GNUP IS LOOKING FOR

Frank Gnup, coach of the Thunderbird baseball team,
announced that he is looking for a manager for his 1957
team.
Anyone interested i n managing i n a Conference

name at the Athletic Office.
Approximately 12 games have been scheduled for

Birds Meet Victoria
For McKechnie Cup
By PETE BRIEGER
University of B.C. Thunderbirds meet Victoria Crimson
Tide in the first game of the McKechnie Cup Series this Saturday at 3:15 p.m. in Varsity Stadium.
Bad weather has led to the re-*—
shuffling of the McKechnie Cup!
schedule. Usually the series consists of a round-robin home and
home series but the fore-mentioned circumstances have resulted in single games with each
of the three teams competing
for the honour.
In the first game of the series Vancouver "Tleps defeated
Victoria. If UBC wins Saturday
the deciding game of the series
will be played at Varsity Stadium on  March  30.
Victoria has an impressive array of talent featuring fullback
Frank Gower and wing Bob
Hutchison, a former Olympic
sprinter for Canada, both who
are former pupils under UBC's
coach Albert Laithwaite.
Gord Hemingway, formerly
with Ex-Brits and Vancouver
Reps, Ray Calton, a perennial
on the B.C. All-star team, and
Harry Webster round out the
Crimson Tide roster.
FULL STRENGTH
Thunderbirds will be at full
strength for this one. Leading
UBC into action will be captain
Ted Hunt, Derek Vallis, Jack
Maxwell, Dick Macintosh, Peter
Tynan and Donn Spence, each
of whom were standouts in the
California series.
"I expect we will win quite
comfortably," commented UBC's
Laithwaite.
Laithwaite will be out to regain the cup lost last year to
Norwests. In his ten years at
Varsity, Laithwaite has won
the cup six times and tied for
it once.

300-TON "TRAVELLING POWER HOUSE" FOR ST. LAWRENCE POWER PROJECT
;;. designed by our mechanical engineers, one of the largest
gantry cranes ever built is now under construction at the
Robert H. Saunders Generating Station, Cornwall, Ont.
This crane, weighing over 400 tons, illustrates a new
trend in design. Completely enclosed, it serves in effect as a
"travelling powerhouse". It incorporates no less than 30
motors for various hoisting and travel movements and has
all the facilities and functions normally provided in a
conventional powerhouse. This project typifies the extensive
resources and experience of the Company in the field of
mechanical engineering.
Dominion Bridge, an all-Canadian Company, is the
foremost fabricator in Canada of bridges and steel structures.
Less well known is Dominion Bridge's leadership in other
engineering fields. Cranes and other handling equipment, hydraulic machinery, boilers for heating and process steam requirements, mining machinery, refinery towers, pulp mill digesters,
oil well machinery—these are but a few examples of the diversification of Dominion Bridge operations.
To-day, we have the largest and strongest Canadian force
of design engineers in our field. Much of their work is of a
pioneering nature, and they are constantly being called upon
to solve problems connected with large projects in virtually
every type of industry. Theirs is a never-ending challenge.
oui&C <z f^ZctAe, w£t& 7)omumc0k Q/uttye,
There are interesting careers awaiting young civil and mechanical engineers in Dominion Bridge Company Limited.
With 15 plants from coast to coast, we are now engaged in
the largest expansion program of our 74-year history.
You are cordially invited to write us at P.O. Box 160, Vancouver, for descriptive booklets on further information on
any question you may have in mind. Or telephone our
Personnel Department Glenburn 1000. Please mention this
