Editor, The UbySsey,
Dear Sir,
While it is not surprising
that the Campus Liberals should
be foaming at the mouth in
frustration over the present
plight of their party, it is unfortunate that in a desparate
attempt to recoup their fortunes they should put the rabid
bite on an organization threat-

The Year We
To Make
tr $ $
Parliament opens today in Ottawa. That isn't a very startling statement but we thought we would inform you of the
iact. We feel safe in assuming that more students on this
campus are aware of President Eisenhower's pulse rate than
are of the fact that their Parliament opens today.
Stanley Burke, the Vancouver Sun's Ottawa correspondent,
bemoaned the fact of Canadian citizens' disinterest in their
government, in his weekly column in last Saturday's Sun.
"Does the public give a damn (about Parliament) ?" asks
Burke. "The answer is no and there's the real ttjobule," he
Why doesn't the public give a damn? Why doesn't it discuss and criticize the activities of Parliament? Mr. Burke just
gives a partial and unsatisfactory answer to that all-important
queston. His two main reasons for this public lassitude are the
low calibre of individuals being sent to Parliament and the
stifling dullness of Parliament itself. We heartily agree but we
think that Mr. Burke has missed the main reason for the public's apathy—and he shouldn't have missed it because it is
constantly staring him in the face.
The mass media—newspapers, radio and television—of the
country must boar the heavy responsibility for the electorate's
dangerous "who-gives-a-damn-what-they-do-in-Ottawa?" attitude.
Whether the government be the Student Council at UBC
or the Federal Government at Ottawa they must have an informed electorate behind them to function properly. An uninformed electorate is an gnorant and consequently disinterested
What is going on at Ottawa? What are our representatives
saying? What are the major issues and what stand are our
representatives taking? What is Canada's current foreign
policy? We should be able to pick up our evening newspaper,
turn on our radio or tune in our television and find the answers to these questions. ,But we can't. Mr. Burke's own paper
the Sun and the majority of the evening's dailies across Canada
are the one's who are shirking their very real responsibility
in not giving the day to day workings of Parliament the prominence in their pages they deserve. Our radio and television
are even too absurd to mention when it corns to coverage of
durrent events.
We may sneer at the hoop^de-do of Ameriean politics but
the American voter knows what his representative is saying and
doing and he is a voter that is interested in the government of
his country. The same cannot be said of the uninformed Canadian voter.
Go Man, Go!
We note with considerable satisfaction that Louis "Satch-
mo" Armstrong, famed jazz trumpeter now on tour in Europe,
intends to "slay those Russian cats with my hot licks," if he
is granted permission to stage jazz concerts behind the Iron
We've always thought that jazz packs an enormous potential for furthering international understanding, and if Louis
gets his visa, we're confident that his brand of jazz will make
the cold war at least several degrees warmer.
We car. even picture chubby Nikita Khrushchev at one
of Louis' concerts, clapping his hands on the offbeat, shouting
the Russian equivalent of "Go, Man!", and then returning to
his diplomatic duties, feeling considerably kinder towards John
Foster Dulles and the country he represents.
Go to it, Louis.
It is fortunate that we cannot read the future, and that all
we can know today is that the year we now enter will be what
we collectively make it. The seasons come and go, with their
good and bad weather, their blizzards, hurricanes and floods,
but it is what men do that makes or breaks the year.
The files of this newspaper    weapon, indeed, has probably
and other newspapers for January, 1956, are not yet available. They are not even at the
bindery. We cannot, therefore,
read them. We can turn back,
of course, to January, 1955,
and subsequent months. They
are in print, on paper that
is changing color a little. They
guide us somewhat as to what
might happen tomorrow, and
between then and January,
A year ago this newspaper
hoped that the historians of
the future might conclude "that
it was in 1955 that humanity
set its face away from darkness
and toward the light." Well,
what happened? We picked our
way out of what might have
been a slump. Science produced the Salk vaccine, put a
Democrat at the head of the
Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigation and
eased the symptoms of McCarthyism. Premier Georgi M.
Malenkov of Russia announced
at the turn of the year that
he would welcome diplomatic
negotiations on the Far Eastern
problem and, a little over a
month later, resigned because,
as he said, he hadn't done very
well. A little flutter of goodwill spread its pale wings upon
the horizon and seemed almost
about to light in Geneva in
July, but in Geneva in November it took fright and flew
away as the leaves began to
fall. In the final month of the
year two strange mountebanks
were seen and heard in the byways and highways of Southeast Asia, but their humor was
bitter and in the Western
world stirred no laughter.
- .In spite of an increased interchange of tourists. Journalists
and the merely curious between
Russia and the Western world,
especially the United States,
there was no warm ruth of
friendship through, across or
around the Iron Curtain. Clifton Daniel, then a correspondent for this newspaper in
Moscow, wrote on Jan. 1: "At
the moment, at the start of ihe
New Year, prospects for formal
agreement between the camps
do not appear bright." The
judgement was correct.
There was hardly any positive gain in international relations during the year. There
were two negative gains: First,
no new war broke out, Second,
the H-bomb did its pacifying
work without ever having to
be used for the rr^struction oi
humanity. The existence of this
done more than any other factor to prevent our Russian
neighbors from taking steps
that might lead to a general
The dove of peaee is not a
creature with wings and an
olive branch in its beak.
The dove of peace is a bomb or
guided missile, a Thing with
an atomic warhead. If this
diabolic contrivance is ever released on the world, the deed
will be that of an insane man
or group of men. There is some
reason to hope that the group
now lording it in Russia, unlike the monsters who dominated Germany a little over a
decade ago, axe sane, whatever
may be their errors of judgment or their betrayal of morality.
We make our year. Every
night the printing presses seize
upon rows of unmarked paper
and spread a pattern of ink
upon them. Every night and
every day words and images
are translated into electrical
impulses and back again into
sound, and sometimes fury, in
millions ef homes. The words
and the .Images do not create
themselves. We make them,
we the people of the United
States, we the people of Western World, we the people of
the human race with all our
diversity of skin and thoughts
and desires.
This is the New Year. No
part of it will be history when
these words are first printed.
A few hours of it will be history before the presses stop
rolling. For some hours of the
night there will be this thunder, this warmth of humanity,
these voices, some plaintive,
appealing, commanding, praying, arguing. Thus the year
will begin to be made. We live
in the time of choices. Today,
tomorrow, the dark ages will
return and they can be darker
than those known historically
by that name. Or today, tomorrow, the millennium may
begin to eome.
We have the power now, the
devices, the designs for an
earthly paradise, but the dream
will not automatically realize
itself. The principle of automation does not work in history.
Life will not feed back happiness into civilization's assembly
line without some help. We
can say this year more than
ever before that the future
depends upon the courage, the
resolution and the energy of
democratic man.
his topic was "Making Confederation Work" and that was
the subject with which he
Surely with the inspiration
of the  great Liberals of the

Jazzsoc Presents Sufer
Sextet Wednesday Noon
A new idiom in modern music will be presented in the
auditorium Wednesday noon when Jazz Society brings to UBC
the Paul Suter Afro-Cuban Sextet.
Suter, young pianist from the*
Cave Supper Club has recently
been doing much experimentation with the complex afro-
cuban- rythms. He will be quickly remembered by Jazz Society
members who heard him give
an impromptu display of his talents last November in the Brock
music room.
Comprising the all important
rhythm section will be drummer
Boomer Cleland, bassist Paul
Rhuland, and giving the Latin
beat, Rodiego and Rene Del-
diego. Rhuland, incidentally, is
a newcomer to Vancouver and
has quickly shown that he is an
expert in his field.
Finally, providing the jazz
sound is a tenorman Wally Snider who blows in the Stan Getz
tradition. He displays a clean
cool tone and technique approaching Getz himself. It is
a real pleasure to hear him and
pianist Suter working together.
This group came together as
a result of many early morning
experimental sessions—gassing
all listeners. The Jazz Society
feels that you too will sit up
with rapt attention when'you

Mr. Raven Is Stuffed
By a Pyschologist
A portly little raven in
black feathers, with a blue
nnd gold scarf tied around his
neck and trailing behind him,
waddled down the street until he came to roost before
wide stone steps leading to a
tall glass door. People jostling
past him, ruffling his feathers, paused long enough to
glance his way, ar.h their
- eyebrows, and grin, then
hustle on again.
Delicately adjusting h i s
pince-nez, he read the lettering on the door: "Dr. Crumely, Bird Psychologist. The
Utmost in Mentar*Taxidermy.
Walk In." He walked in.
Dr. Crumely was not a tall
man, nor was he, for that matter, a short man; he was heavy
but not plump; he was 43-
years old. He rose from behind his desk-to greet the bird
as the secretary directed him
into the office.
"Good-day doctor, I am Mr.
Haven." Mr. Raven said, looking at the doctor. Then, as if
the effort was far too much
for him, he looked away,
sighed, and flopped into a
chair; his wings, drooping over the sides, reached to the
"Yes, Mr. Raven," said the
doctor, "1 know you. You are
thc U3C magazine that no
one has read?"
Mr. Raven blinked his
brown, little round eyes; his
shoulders drooped even more:
his wings went limp. He
siir'.fd again. "Yes," he said,
"that's me."
He blinked again. "That's
thr trouble, doctor. I'm just
an unknown little bird." He
smoothed his scarf, re-adjusted his pince-nez. "Just because I'm not like everyone
cl.se, because I'm not one of
those 'unfeathered two-legged
things', so to speak, people
think I should be avoided,
and Ihey won't accept me on
the campus for what I really
"Why," he said in a hushed
voice,  after  glancing quickly
over his shoulder, "they won't
even let me in a fraternity!"
Mr. Raven slouched down
in the chair and said no more.
He looked out of the window
and watched, without really
noticing, three lady crows,
dressed in three blue an,d gold
scarves, clutched to a branch
of a tree, watching, and noticing, him,
"Unbelievable!" said the
doctor. He was shocked. He
thought. "But don't give up,"
he said suddenly. "Get out
there and get those people to
know you. Let them see that
birds can be just as good, if
different, as people. Once
they know you they will like
Mr. Raven sat up in his
chair, his wings tightened
slightly. He looked alive
again. The three lady crows
turned to each other, whispered excitedly, looked quickly at Mr. Raven, then turned
to watch the doctor.
"You must have confidence
i n yourself," continued
Crumely in his ftest professional manner. "And beyond
all else, you must, and you
will, gain the confidence of
others." The doctor, who had
stood up and leaned over the
desk, now sat down again.
The three crows turned
from the doctor and looked
at Mr. Raven.
All at once Mr. Raven
sprang up. Pitter-pattering
back and forth the room, the
scarf streaming from his neck,
pounding a clenched wing into an opened one, he grew
more and more excited. And
he grew confident.
Six round little eyes, gleaming, outside the window,
jerked back and forth in six
moist little sockets, following
every clawstep Mr, Raven
"Of course! You are right,
doctor. Good doctor, you are
right. How silly!" Mr. Raven
finally cried, with a final flap
of one wing into the other.
He stopped pacing and padded over to the desk, and,
with   his   wings   extended   to
the desk for support, he
leaned over and looked the
man straight in the eyes.
Six round little eyes outside the window stopped
jerking in six moist little sockets, and pointed themselves
at the bird and the man.
"They'll hear about me. I'll
give them the biggest damn
sales talk UBC nas ever
heard. I'll rock every dawn
bird off his roost for miles
around." (At this last remark,
almost imperceptibly, little
shivers stirred the feathers of
the three crows.)
"By God," Mr. Raven said
as he held his pince-nez in one
wing, polished them with the
other, then held them to the
light, then polished them
again. "By God, we will give
it a crack.
"This week," Mr. Raven,
now a fully-confident bird
again, continued, "we shall
create a riot. I'll sell myself
completely. I'll get everyone
to know me. They will listen
to me when they know what
I have to say.1.
With a warm, moist wing
the bird grasped the man's
hand, shook it firmly, and
then with shoulders swinging,
beak pursed to whistle, Mr.
Raven, tossing the tail of the
scarf over his shoulders, wobbled out of the office.
With happy squeals and
nervous flutterings the three
crows, one by one, little
scarves and all, darted from
the branch and disappeared
around the side of the house.
With a surge of power Mr.
Raven sprang into the air and
flew towards the campus.
Tittering shrilly, three
crows  followed.
"Yes," sang Mr. Raven joyfully, "this week people will
find out just what I really
"And for only twenty-five
cents," continued, in a shrill,
young voice, a skinny, freckle-
beaked crow flying behind

Jack Pomfret's Birds have become title threats for the
first time, according to CPS coach John Heinrich, as he watched
UBC hand his loggers a convincing 63-46 loss Friday and follow it up with a 55-44 lacing before the television cameras on
Saturday in the UBC Memorial Gym.
The Thunderbirds have done
in two games what it took them
all the 1955 Evergreen Conference basketball season to do.
By sweeping the two-game
series with the College of Puget
Sound Loggers over the weekend, the thundering Birds have
equalled their victory output
for the whole of last year's conference play.
It was not the scores that impressed the approximately 600
fans that saw each game but
rather the manner in which the
Thunderbirds won. Both contests were decided by a strong
final quarter UBC spurt after
three periods of even ball in
which the margin between the
clubs was never more than a
couple of points.
Friday night, the Birds
jumped into an early eight
point lead and held on for a
three-point   26-23   bulge  at   the j ward  George Dickson  with   13
period to score 11 points in a
row and with them a 19-17 lead
at the half.
With John McLeod, Mike
Fraser, and Ed Wilde handling
most of the UBC scoring, the
fired-up Birds gradually pulled
away from their tired opponents
in the second half. The fast-
breaking Birds led 41-35 at the
three-quarter mark. Going into
a stall in the final minutes, UBC
built up an 11 point lead for
the final 55-44 win.
Scrappy guard Ed Wilde was
high scorer with 16 points, and
McLeod and Fraser were right
on his heels with 14 each. McLeod, who scored only two of
his 14 points in the first half,
and Barry Drummond were
outstanding on rebounds.
The only man to hit double
figures for thc Loggers was for
The Loggers finally tied up
the game at 28-28 early in the
third quarter, but not for long
as the Birds, sparked by the
play-making of guard Ed Wilde,
started to fly. After a three-
quarter score of 42-38, the Birds
outscored the bewildered Loggers 21-8 in the final period for
the big 63-46 win.
High man for UBC was John
McLeod with 17 points, followed by Barry Drummond with
15 and Lyall Levy with 13. Earl
Tallman led the way for the
Loggers with 10 points.
With the help of two whistle-
happy referees who called the
game to the letter, the game was
decided at the foul line. UBC
scored 2-9 points from the charity line, while CPS managed
only 12.
In the second game, on Saturday afternoon, the Thunderbirds started slowly. In the first
quarter UBC was down to the
Loggers by as much as seven
points and at the end of the
frame was on the short end of
a 13-8 count.
BIRD BRIEFS—You get some
idea of the depth of the Thunderbirds' scoring punch this
season when no less than five
different players scored at least
13 points in one of the two
games ... In the preliminary
game Friday, UBC Braves
swamped Victoria College 57-35
with Lance Stephens leading the
way with 24 points . . . Ted
Saunders, just up from the Jayvees, saw considerable action
with the Birds and should fit
in well. The other new addition,
John Gower, 1s still bothered
by a pre-season injury and was
used sparingly.

For Olympic Push
The UBC-VRC rowing crew is now in the throws of the
largest recruiting drive in its history. With head coach Frank
Read and hs assistant John Warren preparing for a full year
of Intercollegiate, National, and International competition, the
Rowing Club is faced with the problem of encouraging the
more powerful populace of UBC's athletic circles to turn out
for the crew.
Because several of the BEG
Championship Crew are either
graduating or undecided as to
whether they will swing on the
sweeps for another year, the
oarsmen are scouring the campus for new blood and muscles
to fill the vacancies.
The climax of the big drive
will come on Thursday night
January 12 at 8:00 when the
crew throws open the doors of
the Brock to all rowing enthusiasts. As part of the programme,

Soccer  Cancelled;
Birds  Strengthen
The Varsity, soccer team lost
on two counts last weekend.
The first was to the weather,
when they had their game
against Royal Oaks cancelled
because the Parks Board considered all their fields unplayable.
This was to have been the
undefeated Birds first game in
Mainland First Division play
since their last outing on December 3.
Their second loss came when
it was learned that they had
lost the services of rookie Len
Bryce. Bryce, who played cen
ter forward, was also capable
of filling in on defense whenever the need arose.
Saturdays game cancellation
was a boon to coach Ed Luckett as it gives him a little time
to try to prepare someone else
for the center forward slot. He
held an intensive workout in
the field house on Sunday.
The UBC Chiefs also lost over the weekend. As well as having their game against Nor-
quays of the Fourth Division
cancelled, they lost several of
their players to the Birds. These
players were transferred to the
first team to build up the Birds
weak reserve strength.
Varsity  In
Grudge  Win
For the umpteenth time this
year, the Parks Board emerged
victorious on the rugby front
by erasing a full slate of games
due to the poor condition of
The only rugger action in the
city was a UBC grudge game
which took place on the Aggie
Field between the Varsity and
Braves, the Varsity taking the
contest, 8-3. This was a practice
game only, but had the elements
of hotly contested First Division
match. Braves were unable to
win the ball from the set scrums
and resorted to a strong defensive game in an effort to contain the Varsity backs.
Doug Clement scored the first
Varsity try just before thc half
on a long run from fifty yards
out. Bob Morford's conversion
attempt from a difficult angle
was wide. Pete Tynan made the
second try for the first team,
and Morford converted.
Hugh Barker closed out the
scoring, booting a penalty for
Max Howell's Braves only score.
Jayvees Beat C-Funs;
Lose To Cloverleafs
One of the brightest futures in UBC basketball history can
be looked upon by the university students as the Jayvees followed through with a 55-46 victory over league leading Sea-
Funs on Saturday night to complete the best weekend of basketball UBC has ever seen.
Sea-Funs, without the services of centremen Bob Pickell
and Ron Stuart, absorbed their
second defeat of the season
while the J.V.'s made it their
second win.
The youthful varsity squad
led by the 17 point effort of
Charlie Burtch out-hustled their
opposition all the" way loading—
at the half. Brown led Sea-Funs
scor \g 11 points.
Jayvee coach Dick Penn arrived home from a Christmas
holiday in the Hawaiin Islands
on Friday night in time to see
his team lose a close 58-63 game
to   the   Vancouver  Cloverleafs.
The junior Birds held their
own against the much older
and more experienced Leafs and
by half time, Varsity held a five
point lead. The Jayvees tired
in the final quarter under the
pace set by hook shot artist
Geoff Craig and were unable
to match every basket.
Dave Milne led the students
With 12 points while Leaf's
Geoff Craig took high scoring
honors for the night with his
27 point effort.
In other Senior "A" league
action, SeaFuns downed Eilers
73-88 on Friday night while,
cm Saturday night, Cloverleafs
climbed into a first place tie
with SeaFuns following their
81-69 victory over fourth place
Cloverdale. Also on Saturday,
the Alberni Athletics experience
proved to be the winning hand
over the hustle of the Vancouver Eilers as the A's won easily
