Strength, Inspiration
This is the issue in which The Ubyssey at long last gets
around  to congratulating our  university's  victorious
Congratulations, members of  the silver  medal-winning
eight-oared crew.
There. We've extended our congratulations. But, we are
going to do something that others overlooked. We're
going to congratulate the others: the members of the crew
who didn't make the trip, and the losers, the four-oared
crew who didn't get past -St. Catherines and the Canadian
trials. In the final analysis, they're just as much winners
as the boys that placed in Honie.
' They will take away from this--university something
priceless^sQmething-«that the rest of us lack. They know

They've learned how to give until there is no more to

t -and then up to a fine edge; what it's like to work until the

your soul.
And What about the Test of us? Most of us are content
to sit back and appraise the situation with phoney objectivity. We applaud the winners; ignore, or even attack the
Maybe Andy O'Brien's attitude is scorching'Harry Jerome as a quitter isn't so far different from yours and frime.
Maybe we all'-forget the individual in our desire to revel-
vicariously in the feats of our countrymen. Perhaps when
our atHletes lose,-most of us do react violently to the sting
of our piqued nationalism.
Or worse still, perhaps the rest of us are so fat in the
area of the soul that we are too stifled and lazy to care.

Canada's Athletes could be strong and inspired, just as
Frank Read's rowers were. But it takes effort—apparently
more thah we're willing to expend.
If we want to have winners we've got to spend both
time and money. Will we do it? Or will we just mutter,
turn over, and forget it? Probably the latter.

Student Council; .in its infinite wisdom, has decided that
the averager UJBC studetit is not adult enough to obey
Alma Mater Society regulations.
For this reason, they have hired a commissionaire to
enforce ^ the no-eating rule in the Brock Lounge.
Just about now, some students will be hollering: "foul!"
We ask them to just hold on a minute and consider the
facts. ' -
Council didn't just suddenly decide that UBC students
(except themselves) are childish. They learned this
through sad experience last year.
They didn't enforce the no eating rule. -Everybody ate
where they weren't supposed to. They kept the card open;
soon it was a pigsty.
Perhaps many of us are children. Maybe we do need
a "big daddy" to keep us in line.
By Clive  Ansley
Premier Bennett proved in
this election that there is no
level of political manoeuver-
iing too base or degrading to
interest him.
The fact that the people of
B.C. were gullible enough to
is waft low 'hook, line and
sinker", the premier's twisted
attacks on the CCF party to
me indicates a criminal negligence in the education of the
B.C. masses.
This is no defense of the
CCF party in general. We do
feel, though that anyone who
could be led to believe that
socialism is necessarily mden*
tical with 'communism has
Absolutely no right whatsoever to the franchise.
The claim that socialism is
communism is as sensible as
the assumption that all human
beings are female, based on
the theory that the converse
of any statement is as true as
the original,
Who would dub England's
Labour party communist?
Who besides the remarkably
naive President Eisenhower
judges the Scandinavian governments to be tinged with
communism? All these parties
are counterparts of -the CCF.
It the CCF is communist, then
so must the Liberals and Conservatives be "displaying their
reds", because their policies
lean unmistakably toward soc-
It is imperative in polities'
that one- understand' the sigiS
nificance qf degree. There is,
in politics, a right wing rand
a left wing-. fExtiremes on
either wing usually spell totalitarianism. Those who shudder at the thought of a left
•wing party gaining control
would do well to remember
that Adolf Hitler was a right
wihger as is our illustrious
premier W. A. C. Bennett. We
do not suggest there is any
further similarity between the
two regarding either motive
or ability. Rather we simply
wish to point out that Premier
Bennett and his "prosperous
aides" are far closer to the
right wing extreme of fascism
than is the CCF party to the
left wing extreme of communism.
Coupled with the childish
and irresponsible attack on
the CCF was what may have
been the death of a newspaper. If Vancouver's morning
paper, a loosely-^Iued rag at
best, ever had any reasonably
intelligent readers it must
surely have driven them away
with the printed temper tantrums and infantile drivel it
it printed during the election
campaign. It strikes me that
he hysterical4 "big^bad wolf"
description of the CCF'-*
painted1 by the morning sheet '
would be much better applied
to the B.C; Social Credit mob.
Let us dispense with
emotionalism long enough to
enable us to compare the
Social Credit party with the
CCF from which we have
been "saved" by Bennett and
his evangelists. Basically the
result of Social Credit is the
"rich get richer and the poor
get poorer." Examine the fundamentals of socialism and
you will find a concern for
human beings which is totally
absent in the doctrines of
Social    Credit.
If this in B.C. is progress,
I'll take politics, thank 'you

Berlin Build-up
(Reprinted from the Christian Science Monitor)
As Soviet Premier Khrushchev approaches the United Nations to deliver an advertised appeal for disarmament, his
lieutenants in East Berlin and in Moscow prepare new evidence that against Communist brute force only the well-
armed will retain their freedom.
The pressures, carefully gauged, are being applied to the
vise that holds the 2,250,000 inhabitants of West Berlin. The
current series of manoeuvers began with refusal to admit
through the Berlin corridor approximately 1,000 West Germans at the time of a gathering of refugees from former German eastern lands.
Nearly 700 of these reached West Berlin by air transportation and now the Soviet commandant of East Berlin charges
this was a misuse of the air lanes which in 1948 saved West
Berlin from blockade.
One manoeuver of the East German puppet government
has been to decree that residents of West Germany (as distinct
from those of West Berlin) may not enter East Berlin without
a special permit. Under the post-war occupation status of Berlin — which Britain, France and the United States insist cannot be changed without their consent — this constitutes an
illegal interference with travel, for which responsibility rests
with the Soviet Union.
There remains, however, the question how these pressures
may be effectively resisted and without unduly worsening a
situation which the Communists can make as serious or as
slight as they wish.
Under Acting Chancellor Ludwig Erhard, the West German
government has taken two appropriate actions. With support
of its North Atlantic allies it has refused to issue further travel permits to officials of the East German government wishing to travel in NATO countries. And it has requested West
German businessmen to refrain on a voluntary basis from
seeking trade or attending trade fairs in the Soviet-controlled
East German zone.
Now the East Berlin regime further declares it will not recognize the West German passports of West Berliners for travel in East Germany. This may seem only a technical point
but it involves a subtle arguement that West Berliners are
not citizens of West Germany but have a separate or stateless
status — from which it would be easy to proceed to an assertion that they are in fact subjects of Communist East Germany.
The United States and Other Western nations must be careful
not to give even tacit assent to any such moves or -to the arrant Communist claim that because West Berlin is surrounded
by East Germany it stands on East German soil. The West
must stand ready to support diplomatically, economically
and, if ned be, militarily the freedom of West Berlin.
Letters To The Editor
The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
I have noticed that already
you have made a large error
with respect to the production of a newspaper. As it is
your duty to print only facts,
I must take exception to an
article in the Frosh Edition.
Vou have stated that there
are three great tribes on cam
pus. It is obviously a gross
error because everybody
knows that the Redshirts are
the only faction on campus
worthy   of mention.
Would you please ensure
that such inaccuracies, as
stated in your article, will not
happen   again.
Yours   hopefully,
Ronald Card,

The first Student Council meeting of the winter sessioi
got off to a flying start Monday night.
As governmental affairs are just moving out of seconc
gear, and Councillors have not yet lost that first early glov
of enthusiasm, business was all wrapped up by 9:30 (Is this t
a" record?)
With the exception of Dave Edgar and Russ Brink, wh.
are attending the NFCUS conference in Ottawa, all member,

Most important item under discussion was the sordio
subject of money.
Treasurer Russ Robinson  reported  that  budget request
exceeded money available by some  $14,000, and warned thav
the usual September axe would be sharp this year.
He pointed out that extra funds due to increased enrollment will be offset by increased expense, particularly by the
cost of Open House this year.
He hoped to present to Council a tentative budget in two
weeks time.

Also considered was the MAC proposal to establish a
capital fund for UBC rowers, rowing expenses to be met from
the interest earned. A capital sum of $200,000 would be needed
and a Student Blitz was suggested to raise this sum from the
While recognizing that UBC rowers have brought more
fame to the University and the city than any other activity,
Council was opposed to the idea of a Student Blitz, No definite
decision was made.
Eating in Brock Lounge was (inevitably), discussed, and
Council authorized the hiring of a Commissionaire for an indefinite period to enforce the no-eating rule.
Although AMS has the power to fine students for breaches
of discipline, it was decided not to proceed to this extreme
as yet.
At the same time, the Administration will be asked to do
something about the extreme shortage of eating facilities.
; In  this  connection,  the   proposed   new. Students'   Union

Council will have a definite proposal about this to put before
the students this fall.

A unanimous protest greeted the appearance of breaded

This scholarship is intended to help some needy South
African student or students whose education has been affected

The late appearance of final examination marks was discussed, and this problem will be investigated in an attempt to
remedy the situation next spring.

Gerin called for increased activities in three spheres. He
asked the congress to consider:
— a study of segregation in
Canada   as   it   effects   students,
— co-operation with the Cen-
tennary Council in preparation
for Canada's centennial in 1967.
— a theme of "The Foreign
Student in Canada" for the
coming year.
"Segregation is effecting
more and more university students," President Gerin said.
"Often because of race, religion
or colour they cannot f i n-d
He asked that the study
should include such items as:
admittance .to Canada.: (the ,gov-
ernment has restrictions. on coloured entrants) visas of Asian
students, lodging, and summer
The centennial study "would
bring forward a truly student
manifestation and educational
program for that great celebration," he said.
Gerin suggested that the
theme for the coming year
"would improve our reception
of foreign students, increase our
contacts with them and fight
against  discrimination."
He pointed outs that foreign
students are a great asset to
our   country.   '*They  honor   us
by choosing to come here. We
can all benefit greatly by knowing them better and letting
them know us better."
Regarding finances, Gerin
said that NFCUS had handled
close to $100,000 last year as
compared to $60,000 the year
before. Canadian students rais«
ed over $11,000 in a special appeal for World Refugee year,

Hello out there in reader's land. How is everything going''
Are you still hectic and confused, or just beginning to get straight
ened out? In the live entertainment world things have been almost
as busy as you.
Benny Goodman, who is getting on in years, can still put on
a good show, as many of you saw on Monday night. The show ] it-
did at the Queen Elizabeth was very well done, but nothing compared to the one he put on later in the evening at the Cave Suppi 1
Club, where the Goofers and the Benny Goodman Group had .1
real wild jam session. It was Benny at his very, very best. F01
anyone who wants to catch an encore, he will be appearing on tin-
Timex Show from New York on September 26.
* * *
On Tuesday night Johnny Mathis came forth with what I fell
was one of the best road shows I had seen. In the last week Van
couver has seen some pretty high calibre performers in Loui^
Armstrong and Benny Goodman but neither seemed to me to have
the type of show for whicn he gained fame.
Each of them only brought a small combo instead of the larger orchestra with which they are usually associated. They appeared to lack the class and showmanship I would expect from
big name artists.
But Johnny Mathis came through with the high calibre of
performance a person wants to see. The show was two and a
quarter hours in length with Mathis on stage singing songs for
about 2 solid hours.
It wasn't like the Kingston Trio where one payed a high price
to sit on a park bench on a level floor and hoped you might get a
glimpse of them during their short but excellent hour show. The
supporting acts for the Kingston Trio were local talent who even
admitted they were no good, by saying "you might as well bear
with us as you are stuck with us for the next 15 minutes."
* *        *
In the Mathis show, the supporting acts were almost as good
as Johnny himself. He was backed up by the Hermes Pan dancers
and by a puppeteer, Andre Tahon. Tahon produced a classic bit,
of puppetry about a pink caterpillar attempting to rule a fence,
and a foolish snail who decided to challenge her authority.
The show gets underway with a puppet conductor trying to
rouse the band to play. Finally the real conductor showed up to
save the situation, and, in true Broadway show style, the act
started with an eight minute overture by the 24-piece orchestra.
Then Mathis, perhaps short on experience, but certainly long
on talent, came on to sing some of his greatest songs to the 3/4-full
house. His repertoire Included "The Cloak of Never," "Chances
Are," "Day In and Day Out," and many more.
At the conclusion of the show the audience would not let him
go until he had given 8 or 9 curtain calls. This is triple those received by either Armstrong or Goodman.
So my hat is off to one of the finest and hardest working
young gentleman in the world of show business today, Johnny
* *        *
Coming next week to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre is Victor
Borge, with his new interpretation of music  among other acts.
Also, many of you may remember Hilo Haiti as Bloody Mary from
"South Pacific". She will be at the Cave Supper Club with her
Hawaiian Review starting September 26 for nine days.
* *        *
In the film end of entertainment "INSIDE RED CHINA" will
be shown at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, on Wednesday, 28th of
September. Robert Cohen photographed such usually forbidden I
things as Jet Planes, Tanks, the modern Red Army and Air Force, !
and the inside of a political prison. The undeveloped film was air |
expressed to New York without a single frame being censored or |
even seen by the Communists. j
This week so far there has already been one superb motion j
picture at the Varsity Sneak Prview called "TIGER BAY", star- |
ring Hayley Mills, which I will deal with next week.
Another film worth taking in this week is "OCEAN'S II
(rated good).
It is glittering, sophisticated enterainment all the way. While
playing Las Vegas, Sinatra formed Dorchester Productions and
filmed the picture on the spot in Panavision and colour, with the
gambling casinos and floorshows for authentic backdrops.
The story briefly is that Danny Ocean, Frank Sinatra a gambler and war veteran, calls together ten of his scattered Army buddies to assist in the wholesale holdup of five Las Vegas gambling
casinos on New Year's Eve. Although the holdup goes off without
a hitch, an ironic turn of events loses the money for everybody,
and the Army buddies are left penniless at the finale.
Other shows worth seeing:
Broadway: POLLYANNA Excellent . . . The beloved story of the
glad girl who changed the lives of her neighbours.
Park: I'M ALL RIGHT JACK. Good . . . This is British satire at its
best, a good humoured jab at organized labor and management, replete with comical characterizations nnd large doses of slapstick.
superbly done by some of England's top players, Peter Sellars, Ian
Carmichael and Terry Thomas.
Strand: PSYCHO Excellent . . .
Sorry I am not allowed to reveal the story, but I can tell you
this: the first murder comes so suddenly and violently, that it
staggers the viewer. Thereafter violence always threatens. Janet
Leigh. Tony Perkins.
Varsity: AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS Excellent . . . Won
the Best Picture of the Year 1957 David Niven and an all star cast.
Science Student
Wins Scholarship
A UBC student is one of 16
North Americans who have
been awarded Florence Guggenheim Fellowships.
Peter H. Brooks, 3731 West
Sixth, will use the fellowship
for advanced study at the Guggenheim Jet Propulsion Center,
Californa Institute of Technology.
The awards carry a stipend
of $1200 to $2000 and are
awarded to students showing
ability in the fields related to
the flight sciences.
Brooks, who will graduate
from UBC in October with a
Master of Aeronautical Science
degree, had previously won the
Plimsoll Club Scholarship and
the B.C.E. scholarship for graduate  research.
One  hundred   forty eager,   bright-eyed  Frosh,  carefully
chaperoned by AMS Councillors and 15 faculty members, will
depart Sept. 30 for the Frosh Retreat.
It  will again be held in the
seclusion  of  Camp  Elphinstone
on Howe Sound.
The Frosh will leave in three
buses from the Brock at 5:30
that day. They will make connection at 6:30 with the boat
Which will take them on a "ro-
tmantiic monnl'ighit" cruise to
their  destination.
Their program while at
Elphinstone will include a bonfire and sing-song, dancing and
skits, as well as other group activities. It is interesting to note
that Camp Elphinstone is re-
known for its privacy and
heavily   wooded areas.
The retreat does, of course,
have a serious purpose. It constitutes an excellent opportunity for th Frosh to become acquainted   not   only with   their
fellow students, but with faculty
and members of Students'
Council. Delegates become more
familar with the various facets
of student life and the complexities of student government.
To this end, most members
of the AMS will be present at
one time or another during the
weekend to participate and lead
group discussions  and   debates.
Registration is filling rapidly but there are stili a few
vacancies left which may be
filled by applying to the AMS
office in the Brock. Registration fee is $4.50.
Approved registrants are reminded that there will be a
meeting in Bu. 104 at noon,
Sept. 28. At this time all questions will be answered and details will  be given.

KFCUS Congress m Halifax
HALIFAX (CUP)—Canadian university students should
not only voice their opinions on the problems of education but
should "shoulder their social responsibility," the president of
the oldest college in Canada today told delegates to the twenty-
fourth annual NFCUS congress.
Canon Puxley, of King's College in Halifax, as honorary
president of the National Federation of Canadian University
Students, opened the first
session of the week-long congress being held at Dalhousie
Nationally, Canadaian students have a social responsibility to alleviate the presenl
problems concerning education
such as costs, and scholarships,
Canan Puxley said. Internationally, "they must study ways in
which students can foster understanding1."
He said it is very odd that we

ALL STUDENTS . . . any

have adopted two yardsticks for
education, academic and economic. Many times, he pointed
out, matriculation does not fulfill its purpose, because standards in schools necessarily vary
from larger to smaller communities.
From and economic standpoint, the son of a weathy man
may be able to go to university
and the son of a worker may not.
"What is the relevancy?" he
asked. "The children of the
wealthy are not necessarily more
intelligent. We must not allow
entrance to the university to be
controlled by economics more
than anything else."
Comparing our system to ;that
of the Soviet Union he described
its system "as a cream separator,
where the creani .always jisea to
the top."

Once upon a time, last summer to be exact, a very interesting
and edifying interview took place in a small Northern Ontario
television station.
It was one of the typical kiddies-on-camera type of show and
the interviewer, let's call nim Randy for the sake of convenience,
asked a young gentleman his name.
This given, Randy proceeded with the usual loaded and dangerous questions always asked of children on such programs.
What school do you attend? How do you like the teacher? If the
kid would say what he really thought! However he had been
thoroughly coached and bribed with donuts and soft drinks beforehand.
Randy, not satisfied with leaving well enough alone, stepped
further towards his television doom.
He asked the youngster if there was any one "way out there"
he wanted to say hello to. Now was his big chance! The young lad
saluted himself to half his neighbourhood and any others who
happened to be victims of the one hundred mile range of the transmitter. He did, however, omit his father.
Once more Randy jumped. Deeper! In answer to Randy's query
the lad said that his father was working in a nearby mine and was
unable to receive the telecast. Our hero finished digging his grave
with the next one! __

"The reasons for the rule are

"Crumbs attract rodents and
pets of. all sorts, stains from
the liquids mark up the floor,
apple cores and dill pickles and
diher rotftjing food leave un-

Ross Southam, Arts III, took
another  view and suggested a
means of escape from the problem.
"If they had disposal units

problem would disappear. Now
all they have are ash-trays to

"The AMS should put up an
