Charges   Vile  Rag"
THE
Reverend Blasts Ubyssey
The Ubyssey has made nation-wide headlines as the
"vilest rag you can imagine,"
following charges made by
Rev. E. C. Pappert, professor
at Assumption College, Windsor, Ont., and faculty supervisor of the Assumption student newspaper.
Father Pappert said December 30 he "doesn't go along
with the notions" of Gordon
Vichert, editor of the McMas-
ter University Silhouette, who
rated the Assumption paper,
the Purple and White, last in
a "freedom list" of college
papers.
Vichert, making a report
to the Canadian University
Press conference in Quebec
City, placed the Ubyssey first
on   his  list,   and   the   Purple
and White nineteenth, out of
tweniy-one papers.
"Thank God we're at the
bottom," said Rev. Pappert,
the Ubyssey is "The vilest rag
you can imagine, and the best
argument for censorship that
could be produced."
Vichert's list was described
as an "arbitrary and purely
personal" ranking of the freedom given to editors of student publications.
"We don't go along with
this student's notion of cen-
sorship," commented Father
Pappert, who has complete
responsibility for the editorial
content of the Purple and
White. "In the CUP there is,
I believe, a rather radical ten
dency to have these papers
free from what they call faculty domination. That seems
to be their battle cry."
Dean G. C. Andrew, deputy
to President MacKenzie, supported the Ubyssey against
Father Pappert's charges.
While the Ubyssey "sometimes can be a bit of a rag,
vile or otherwise," the paper
has been "excellent" this year
he said.
"The paper's excesses of
freedom have never amounted
to excuses for censorship."
Editor-in-Chief Stanley Beck
stoutly   defended   his   paper.
"The Ubyssey isn't always
what could be termed lily
white, but then it isn't always
a vile rag either. Freedom
such as this paper enjoys will
always result in many controversial items.
"But a university is a controversial place and students
themselves are neither completely lily white nor completely vile. The Ubyssey, to
an extent, reflects student life
and character, A paper that
is rigorously censored can certainly never claim to be a representative university newspaper."

RALL Y TO THE PUB BOARD CALL
Help!
The Ubyssey urgently needs cultured, clean-living reporters to purify The Ubyssey, which has fallen into disrepute.
Healthy mature males are preferred but Ubyssey
editors have no objection to reporters of the female sex.
This is urgent. This is for real.
If you can write, type, kiss and make up you will be
welcomed with open assignment book. If you can only do
one or two of the above come down anyway and become
famous.
Come down to the Pub Den, basement of the North
Brock, rush up to City Editor Val Haig-Brown and tell
her what you want to do. She will be very happy to take
you by the hand and lead you up the rosy path of honorarium-less martyrdom for the good of the school.

In a three-way tie with The

The Bracken Trophy for editorial excellence, competed for

Set BROCK BOWLING
Rush  Traffic Tied  Up
Practical Jokers Bar UBC Roads
R.C.M.P. and University
Buildings and Grounds Officials, report that a group of
practical jokers made a well-
organized b u t unsuccessful
attempt to disrupt traffic coming out to campus for eight-
thirty lectures on the first day
of term.
Early on Tuesday morning
"Road Closed" signs were
placed on.the Agrononmy Rd.,
and Fort Camp entrances to
Campus, which for a time had
the effect of diverting all Marine Drive traffic to the* Law
Library entrance to Campus.
Buildings and grounds officials arriving for work this
morning saw the signs, but
were undedded whether they
were genuine or not.
At about eight-fifteen, at
the height of the traffic rush
along University Boulevard, a
man dressed as a workman
stepped into the road and
brought the traffic to a step
with a red flag. While he explained to automobile drivers
that, there had been a serious
accident along the road> two
accomplices placed a prominent black and white "Road
Closed" sign right across the
boulevard. The three then
walked calmly away across
the Golf course.
Fortunately t h e R.C.M.P.
radio car was in the vicinity
and the barrier was removed
within a matter of minutes,
but not before there had been
a small traffic tie-up at Tenth
Avenue  and  Blanca.
On  the  Campus   itself  the
jokers removed ba-riers and
equipment which the building
and grounds departm°nt were
using for alterations to the
layout of the main parking
lot, and closed off the principal entrance in front of the
faculty club.
This part of the hoax appears to have been completely
successful. Students circled
the parking lot to find entrances, right up till eight-
thirty when the barriers were
removed.
An R.C.M.P. officer interviewed on the telephone on
Wednesday did not seem very
interested in the affair, 'i
guess it was somebody's idea
of a fake." he said, "but it
didn't quite come off."

Vile  Rag
Flash, Tabloid, Hush and other publications of their ilk
have a new member—The Ubyssey—the thrice weekly student
publication of U,BC. We were placed in this category by Reverend E. C. Pappert, "moderator," of the Purple and White,
the bi-weekly student publication of Windsor's Assumption
College.
Father Pappert termed The Ubyssey "the vilest rag you
can imagine, and the best argument for censorship that could
be produced." Father Pappert made this statement after the
Editorial Committee of the Canadian University Press, in
reporting on the relative freedom of its member papers from
censorship by their student councils and administrations placed
The Ubyssey number one in order of freedom and the Purple
and White number 19, third from ihe bottom of the list. We had
nothing to do with the committee's report and are not responsible for the fact that we are number one on the list and Assumption is number 19.
However, Father Pappert was happy that the Purple and
^Vhite was classed as censored, which it is, (Father Pappert
must initial every article before it goes to the printers) and he
attacked us as an example of what happens to an uncensored
paper. He called this paper a vile rag. He is not by any means
alone in his sentiments. Many people and many students share
the same opinion of this publication.
Sometimes we probably deserve the epithet "vile" but not
often enough, we believe, to be permanently labelled a vile
rag. Some of the things we print some people find revolting,
others find them humorous. Some of the opinions we express
some people disagree with violently and say we should not be
allowed to print them, others agree with our opinions. Some
like our policies, others do not.
But this is a university and we are a university paper.
And a university is nothing more than a forum for the FREE
exchange of opinion. If everyone liked this paper and agreed
with all it said it wouldn't be worth the paper it is printed on.
We don't know what Assumption College is like. We have
never studied there. But if it is deserving of the title university
we can't believe that its censored paper deserves to be called a
university student's newspaper. It may be more fairly called
an inocuous, censored publication but not a student newspaper.
Foreign   Students
From the New York Times
When the colleges and universities reopened this fall, more
foreign students than ever before were enrolled. Much is being
clone to make the transition as easy as possible for the visiting
students. A study just completed by the Greater New York
Council for Foreign Students, provides helpful hints to college
administrators and teachers.
During the year 1954-55 there were 4,244 foreign students
in New York City and 35,000 throughout the country. Two
universities, Columbia and New York University, enrolled half
of the foreign students in this city.
Almost everyone who deals with foreign students ranks
the language problem near the top of the list. Because an inadequate working knowledge of the English language causes
so much disappointment and lost time, the colleges are urged
fo pay more attention to this area. Colleges are asked to consider a flexible approach to language inadequacies which reveal themselves when the student is enrolled. This may include
providing opportunities to live and play in an atmosphere where
conversational use of English will be constant. B.F.
Yeah Mom—It Was a Tremendous Party!
5 Scope Limited
As New Year Opens
By THOMAS J. HAMILTON
The New York Times
Ten years ago when delegates from 51 countries were, beginning to gather in London for
the first session of the United Nations General Assembly, no one could have predicted th«
ups and downs in store for the United Nations. Although the recent increase in the membership to 76 carries unmistakable implications, it is just as risky now as it was then to predict
what will happen in the organization's next ten years.
It is clear, however, that the United Nations cannot possibly recapture all of its original
self-confidence. In those days almost everybody operated on the assumption that the opening
of the Assembly on January 10, 1946, would inaugurate a new heaven and a new earth and in
particular would relegate power politics to the ashcan.
These great expectations
based, of course, upon the premise that the Soviet Union
would cooperate with the United States in the United Nations at least as well as it had
cooperated during the fight
against the Axis. No one doubted that the two superpowers
could and would suppress any
move by the small powers to
upset the peace.
Instead, the Soviet Union
launched the "cold war," culminating in the invasion of
South korea. The United Nations response to Korea left
something to be desired, but
this was primarily the result
of the limited powers granted
by the Charter.
The United States realized
that the U.N, had been able to
respond only because the Russians were absent from the
Security Council. It persuaded
the Assembly to take over
these duties from the normally
veto-paralyzed Security Council.
AMBITIOUS STEP KILLED
That was barely five years
ago; but already this ambitious
step, known as the 'uniting
for peace" program, is a dead
letter. It was killed by the
steady advance of neutralism
among the Asian and Arab
countries, which first became
prominent three years ago.
AltTiough neutralism was a
product of many causes, it resulted in the first instance from
the fear that General Mae Arthur's conduct of operations in
Korea would result in a world
war. Dislike of the defensive
alliances sponsored by the United States came into play .liter the Korean armistice in
July.  1953.
Another factor was the pari
Ihe I'nited States played in
preventing Communist Chinese
delegates  from  being seated  hi
the United Nations. Most Asian
countries felt that the enmity
of the United States to the Pei-
ping Government, which won
control of the entire mainland
six years ago, was cause to
suspect the reliability, or in
any case the good judgment,
of American policy.
Neutralism got a later start
among the Arab countries,
which still have not recognized
the Peiping Government. In
addition to their irritation over
the United States support of
Israel, they were anrioyed by
the common stand of the North
Atlantic! Treaty powers against
the Arab attack on French rule
in North Africa. The Kremlin,
which originally had sided
with Israel, gradually shifted
over to the Arab side and has
now gone so far as to provide
Egypt  with arms.
SHIFT OF BALANCE
These strangely d i v e r s e
forces made themselves feK as
early as the 1954 session of
the General Assembly, where
there was a great neutralist to-
do over the fact that the Soviet
Union had joined in producing
some unanimous resolutions on
the procedure involved in
handling the disarmament
question. The other side of the
medal was that from this time
on the Assembly refused to
have anything more to do with
the old-style American resolutions that condemned Soviet
policies 5a  to  5.
By this time, moreover, Ethiopia and Liberia had joined
the Asian-Arab group: that
lVoc crystallized at the Bandung  meeting last spring.
Afterward came ihe Soviet
Union's propaganda triumph, at
the Big Four heuds-of-govern-
mont met. ting a t G e n c v a,
which confirmed the neuiral-
i>ts in what the.'.' had been
ii ;:   ail  the  -me  about   the
ay-
de
termination of the Kremlin to
avoid a hydrogen war.
GENEVA NEUTRALISM
Under the impulse of the
"spirit of Geneva," the 1955
session of the Assembly went
much further along the neu-
tralist line and the United
States reverses were correa-
pondingly  severe.
Of more fundamental importance is the.fact that many ot
the twelve new non-communist
members have already joined
the neutralist (and anti-colonialist) bloc.
Italy and Portugal, as members of NATO, and Spain, because of her alliance with the
United States, are exceptions.
However the Austrians and
Finns may feel about it, Austria is neutral by treaty and
Finland by propinquity with
the Soviet Union. Ireland was
neutral about Hitler but may
feel differently about Bulganin
and Khrushchev.
QUESTION OF FUNCTION
The fundamental question,
of course, is whether the true
function of the United Nations,
the world being what it is today, is to be a sword and buckler against aggression, or simply a mirror of seventy-six
varieties of government.
Everything t h a t has happened since Korea suggests
lhat the organization should
give up the perilous attempt
to enforce peace and leave this
to NATO and the other defense
alliances.
Even these have been sapped by neutralism., the desire
to return to normalcy and the
"spirit of Geneva." But clearly
they are much more to be depended upon than a world organization that has narrowed
its scope as a result of broad-

Appointed Deans
Two of the universities most outstanding faculty members,
Dr.* Gordon M. Shrum and Dr. F. H. Soward have been appointed Deans, President N. M. M. MacKenzie announced
Wednesday.
Shrum will succeed Dr. Henry
F. Angus who is retiring as Dean
of Graduate Studies, and Soward
will assume the duties of Associate Dean of Graduate
Studies.
President MacKenzie, when
announcing the appointments,
said "Dr. Shrum and Professor
Soward are known and respected
across Canada and throughout
the world for their scholarship,
ability and practical common
sense."
Dr. Shrum joined the university staff in 1926 as assistant of
Physics. He became head of the
Physics Department in 1038.
Dr. Soward, who graduated
from the University of Toronto,
and did post-graduate work at
Oxford and the University of
Edinburgh, is an internationally
known authority on Canada and
lier international relations.
Retiring Dean of Graduate
Studies, Dr. Angus will continue
with the university in a lecturing and advisatory position, in
addition to his new duties as
Chairman of the Public Utilities
Commission.

for Study
An initial donation of $50,000

by the B.C. Electric Company
to make an "impartial study"
of development of hydro-electric
power on the Fraser River.
Researchers at UBC hope to
discover ways of preserving the
fishing industry on the Fraser
while at Ihe same time investigating possibilities of developing
power.
P. C. Woodward, director of
publicity for BCE, said the company would donate further
funds. "The $50,000 donation
doesn't begin to cover the entire cost of the research project."
Mr. Woodward said the next
move would have to be made
by Dr. Norman MacKenzie, president of the University, who
will organize the project by
bringing together scientists and
the proper facilities.
"I am pleased that the university can contribute to the
development of the province's
natural resources," said President MacKenzie Wednesday.

The long awaited "New Brew" is being served in the Cafe-

The general response by students when told that the coffee

new and approved blend is:
•Huh?"
One freshman, when queried
on his opinion of the brew re- j
plied, "Sorry. I'm not in a posi-l
tion to answer." When pressed
further he elaborated with:  "I j
made a New Year's  resolution
not to touch the stuff."
Comment  heard  in  the  past:
was: "It's so bad I'd rather go i
to lectures than sit in the Brock [
and drink it." When the same j
person was sought, her comment j ^7"
was:   "I'm  going to my labs j        '
