West Point Printers and Stationers, printers of the labels
used on the collection cans did
not charge Council for the 300
labels and asked that this be
accepted as their contribution
to the Springhill  fund.
Questions asked the students were:   Do you think the
money for rising expenses should come from an increase in
student fees?   Why not?   If not, where should the money come
from?
Proposition to increase fees to meet rising costs of university expenses met with violent reactions from the student body
today.
Pollees were informed that
UBC fees are "substantially"
lower than those of other universities across Canada.
Barry Tyldesley, Arts 1, muttered, "Who can afford an in
crease? I have enough trouble
making ends meet." "They
could get money from the board
of  Governors,  maybe.'
"Definitely no, said Mickey
O'Brien, Arts II. "They've got
this idea of scholarships rolling
now, and maybe they'll be
kicking through soon. I think
that the government should pay
everybody's way, if the students  will get  passing marks,'
Sandra  Shore,  Arts  III said,

Communism
Coincidence
The Democratic Party has scored a decisive victory in
the United States election.
We are among those Canadians who prefer a Democratic government in the U. S.
That party has seemed to us to be less isolationist, less
chauvinist, and less anti-intellectual than the Republican
party.
We deplore the fact that the Republicans have relied on
the hero appeal of Eisenhower to get their votes; we deplore
the warlike policies of their secretary of state; we deplore
their weak-kneed stand on school integration.
We hope that the Democratic victory can be interpreted to mean that the majority of the American people
alao deplore these things.
In any case, it now appeal's that the next president of
the United States will be a Democrat. Who he will be is
open to question.
There is one Democrat, however,, who will not be that
next president, although he is probably the best man for
the job.
That man is Adlai Stevenson, twice the Democrats'
choice for president and twice defeated by the popular
appeal of General Eisenhower.
The Democratic party has lost only two presidential
elections in twenty-eight years, and promises to win the
next.
The United States and the world are the poorer for the
coincidence that Mr. Stevenson's peak popularity in his
party came at a time when his party suffered its only "lean
years" in recent history.
GUEST   EDITORIAL
Students Should Pay
For Their Education
In your Friday, October 31, edition you have an editorial entitled, "Students must oppose fee hike." It is, of
course, within the student body's own competence to decide
whether or not they want to oppose a fee hike if it is
recommended, and at this point I am not concerned to
argue the merits or demerits of a fee increase. I am, however, concerned about the statement you make in the editorial when you say, "Ideally fees should not exist at all, but
under the present political and economic structure of the
country such a Utopia is unrealistic." I wonder whether
this statement really represents any considerable body of
student opinion.
Undoubtedly society needs more educated and professionally trained persons and, as a consequence, society has
a strong interest in making higher education possible for all
those qualified to benefit from. it. Equally undoubtedly,
however, the individual who receives a higher education
normally benefits financially as well as educationally from
it.
I find it hard to believe that society should bear the
total cost of higher education when the individual, as well
as society, receives material benefits from it.
I do not, of course, want to see university enrolment
limited to those whose parents can afford to send them, but
I do think it. only fair that all students should nay for a part
of their education without limiting their ability to go to
university.
Summer work, more bursaries and more loan funds are
necessary in order thai the burden of cost of a higher education may be appropriately divided between the beneficiaries — society and the individual student.
Yours sincerely,
G. C. ANDREW,
Dean and Deputy to the President
Reply To Mr. Apt
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I would like to reply to Edward Apt's letter in the Nov. 4
issue of The Ubyssey entitled:
"What's Communism?"
He begins by saying that no
person now really knows what
the term "Communism" means.
He then groups people into
three categories "by their opinion about Communism" i.e.—
(1) "What Marx and Engels
wrote about"; (2) "What exists
in the USSR today"; (3) "anti-
capitalists". The third category is, he says, "the category
of imagined Communists"
which is an "entirely false idea
which has misled many unsuspecting, thinking people."
I will begin by admitting
that the term "Communism" is
very vague in its ordinary use.
But this does not mean that no
one "really knows" what "Communism" means. To know what
a word means is to know how
to use it. To know how to use
it, go to a good dictionary.
There is no "Real" or "True"
meaning of a word outside its
ordinary use. There are few
words however, which are not
ambiguous or vague, witness
Mr. Apt's "North American
Style of Life," "treason", "faithlessness," etc.
I think it is quite clear that
the LPP, by the criterion of
ordinary usage, can correctly
be called "Communist." This
is undenyable when one considers that the LPP is an integral part of the worldwide movement to which the word "Communist" is ordinarily used to
refer, By tho 'criterion of use'
the LPP has, and its members
have, more right to the term
"Communist" than any other
Canadian group. I might add
that the LPP fits all three of
Mr. Apt's "possible definitions."
I agree that anti-Capitalists
are not necessarily Communists and also that the belief that
they are has led to many mistakes on both sides of the so-
called "Iron Curtain". But
how many who are merely anti-Capitalist imagine themselves
to be Communists?
Having said all this concerning Mr, Apt's mistaken conception of the meaning of the
term "meaning," I wish now
to point out that his whole argument is quite irrelevant as
far as the "abstractness" of the
term "Communist Viewpoint"
is concerned. So are his three
questions near the end of the
letter. The term "Communist
Viewpoint," of which we are
speaking, is a proper noun, i.e.
it is a name used to refer to a
particular, whereas "Communist" is a general term used,
roughly speaking, lo reiser to a
class. Now there is a sense in
which a proper name may be
incongruous, if Ihe LPP had
named their leaflet "Tho Christian Viewpoint," then we could
laugh at them for this and say
lha! lhe title and the contents
wore incongruous —- but wo
coirtd not say thai the title was
too abstract."
Why doesn't Mr. Apt suggest:
that the Vancouver Sun or the
Conservative club leaflet "Phoenix"   or  the    student    C'CF's
"Socialist     Challenge"     make
their titles less abstract,
Further, even if Mr. Apt's
objection were legitimate —
and it is not — all he needs to
do if he requires clarification
of the nature of lhe thing to
which the name "Communist
Viewpoint" refers, is to read
the leaflet.
If he wants to know, "What
is Communist?" from the LPP
viewpoint, then I suggest he
asks Mr, MacFarlane for a
party program, and if his interest leads him on, I imagine that
the LPP will be only too glad
to supply him with literature.
The same goes for "What does
it mean to be a Communist?"
(which, I take to be roughly
synonymous with tiie first question — Ref. J. Wisdom's "Philosophy and Psycho-analysis" —
NY 1953, p. 112).
As to, "Who is a bad Communist?" Mr. Apt may run into some trouble — but only
part ol it will be verbal, and if
he is careful in placing his
questions and persistent enough, he will be able to find
out that "Stalin was a bad Communist compared to Lenin", etc
etc.
In conclusion, I would like
to say, concerning the linguistic content of Mr. Apt's letter,
that even though it is nearly
all either misleading or false,
still "What's Communism?" is
the kind of letter we should
see more of in The Ubyssey.
It deals with real problems
seriously and in some detail.
I don't think the same thing
can be said for the political
content of the letter. The view
that "your either for us or against us" for example — a view
that is particularly strong in
the Communist Movement —
is, in its more rational interpretations, false.
And for another example:—
from the viewpoint of the LPP,
they are not turning "away
towards the enemy" for, (1) to
them, the USSR is not an enemy, and (2) they admit "turning away" but not towards the
USSR.
Finally, they honestly believe
— you may turn to Marx for
this view — that there can be
no solutions    to    the internal
problems    of   Capitalism.    So
why should they look for them?
Yours sincerely,
BILL LEWIS,
Arts IV
Red Dictatorship
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
While I was walking down
the stairs in the Engineering
building someone gave me a
yellow sheet of paper. First of
all, I thought a man from the
Provincial Government was
handing out application forms
for Scholarships, I was quickly disappointed when I read the
headlines: "The Communist
Viewpoint, Hands off!!! Peace
and Socialism."
After reading <he badly mimeographed paper of twisted
half-truths, sweeping generalizations and outright lies, I have
decided to criticize the editors'
presentation of socialism,
First of all, I wonder whether they refer to Socialism or
Communism, there is a world
of difference between the two
political  treor'ics!" A  commu
nist-made dictionary defines
socialism as "a form of society
where the means of production
are publicly owned and the
exploitation of workers by employers no longer exists.
Everyone should be judged
by their achievements."
The same dictionary defines
Communism as "the highest
form of society wherein social
classes will come to an end.
The individual should be judged by his needs." I will not
attempt to prove that Communism is a Utopian theory, anybody can see how it contradicts
humannature.
Referring to Socialism, however, the front page of the
"Communist Viewpoint" of
Oct. 16 reads in part: "Capitalism must and will be superseded by Socialism on a world
scale." What kind of Socialism
will Capitalism be superseded
by? That which one sees in
Britain and Sweden or a very
different kind like that in Hungary, East Germany or Poland?
I am sure that the anonymous
editors of the paper mean the
latter, although they never dare
to commit themselves on this
most vital point!
Somehow I can't just understand you fellows in the LPP.
Let me ask you a question:
What would you think of a government whose soldiers slaughtered thirty thousand of your
fellow countrymen, thirty thousand people who only wanted
freedom? Wouldn't you hate
them? (I was lucky to have
escaped the fate of those thirty
thousand killed two years ago).
To be sure, I do not hate the
Russian people, but I do hate
their despots, I hate that communist party which terrorizes
them with every means of a
secret police and which wants
to gain rule of the world using
the seductive ideas worked out
by German and other sociologists.
You fellows in the LPP, don't
you see desperate fights for
power between the members of
the Soviet Politburo? Don't
you see the lies behind sweet
words and peaceful promises?
Can you explain to me for
what reason workers and students gave their lives, either
East German, Polish, Hungarian or Ukrainian?
Did you hear that even Russian soldiers were fighting for
the Hungarian patriots in East
Hungary? (This is one reason
we managed to remain independent for four days).
Who knows what could have
happened if this mutiny had
spread to other divisions of the
Russian army? However, the
insurgents' replacement by
Mongolian soldiers (who believed they were entering the
Suez zone) was successful.
Hungary remained "socialistic"
and "loyal" to the Kremlin.
Lest I be misunderstood, let
me explain my attitude towards reforms of a Welfare nature and towards socialism, itself. Reforms which aim to increase the standards of living
should be the purpose of democratic governments. But I
think these can be implemented
without benefit of a communist party or a Red dictatorship.
Yours truly,
JOHN BALL Thursday, November 8\ 1958'

Engineers vs. Artsmen
Debate Won By Redshirts
By WAYNE LAMB
Last Tuesday in Buchanan 106, two engineers, Alan Brown and Murray Roblin, and
Artsmen Donald Grayston and Peter St. John    "argued" as to whether or not engineers were
educated.   The topic of the debate as presented on the blackboard:  "Resolved,  that artsmen
is  educated, whereas ENGINEERS  are trained."     (SIC)
First speaker for the affirma
five, St. John described an imaginary figure walking down the
Mall "Sloping of forehead, Simian of brow . . . obviously an"
. . . last word drown out by
engineers crying "Artsmen . . .
An  Artsman!"
St. John went on to describe
engineers in general as being
lost behind the assimilation of
facts and figures and being "un-
appreciative of Aesthetic qualities."
First speaker for the negative
stood up, describing St. John's
tirade as "charming, humorous,
entertaining" "However," he
shouted, "I did not come here to
be amused or entertained. I
came to discuss intelligently the
topic at hand."
(loud clapping from engineers
— no unconservative shouting).
Roblin then accused artsmen
of not having a practical education. "Artsmen," he said, "Are
attempting to live a Roman or
Grecian life in a modern World.
They have no knowledge of
what makes the world tick.
Engineers, on the other hand,
understand the nature of all
things, being scientifically trained. This is why engineers are
preferred in administrative positions over artsmen.
Artsmen sometimes accuse us
of being narrow minded. We
are definitely not, after all it is
the engineer who carries out re-
.search to discover truth, even
att the expense of earlier findings (in such case as they are
proved incorrect). Artsmen
"discover" new "truths" which
they add to the stockpile but
they fail to discard the chaff."
The next arts spokesman, Donald Grayston, spoke copiously on
the subject of sex; in particular
debate referred to the activities of engineers. "An Engineer," he claimed, "knows nothing about sex. They are frustrated to such an extent they
gather in the dorms and boast of
imaginary conquests over a glass
of beer."
(loud cheers from the artsmen,
hisses from the opposition).
"The engineers," Grayston exclaimed, "Take all the dirty
books from the library, so when
the artsmen, in search of knowledge, of an aesthetic quality of
course, (hiss from engineers) —
come to the library, only the
good books, namely the Classics
(louder hiss from redshirts) are
left. Artsmen are so engrossed
by their search for truth that
they do not have so much time,
as do engineers, to pursue the
fair sex . . . (loud guffaw from
everyone) and so he must amuse
himself."
(At this "Freudian slip," as
judge Ron Jeffles termed it, the
house comes clown. As the unfortunate Grayston hides blushing face in his collar, a Redshirt
speaker drapes his sweater
across Grayston's shoulder, (the
mirth begins anew).
The last speaker, Al Brown,
begins by saying he did not come
to discuss sex, but the question
— (he indicates the topic, writ
ten in large    capitals
board behind him).
on    the
Brown then stated that science
was responsible for making
North America the place that it
is, and those who were aware of
the place of science, and had
knowledge of science, would
eventually inherit the earth.
(Scattered laughter from those
who realized this remark was a
Biblical allusion).
In rebuttal to the Biblical allusion, St. John replied: "that
came from a book which very
few engineers have read — (tremendous glee fills the house) —
and the original wording, I believe was: "Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth."
(To this an engineer in the
rear cries: "That gives most
artsmen an excellent chance."
He is acclaimed by scattered
cheers and jeers).
The show being over, the moderator asked for a verbal vote
from the audience. The cry of
"AYE" for the affirmative was

poorly  timed  and  weak,    The
redshirts  having   a   solid  nasal
sound on which to begin their
defeat of the resolution, sounded
a   roof-shaking   "NAY"  and  so
established one of three votes of
the issue.
The judges, Professors Jeffles
(Romance studies) and Baker
(English), both agreed that the
engineers, while not so charming
and witty as the artsmen, presented their arguments in a more
sensible fashion, and that the
content of the engineers' presentation was more concrete and
to the point.

Terpsichore is the name of
the Greek Muse of the Dance.
Translated, it means "to delight in dancing."
One of the nine muses, Terp-
with a lyre, crowned with flow-
sichore is generally represented
ers, and is pictured with a
smile.
At that time, dancing was
considered to be an accessory
to lyrical poetry, and an aesthetic expression.
It was necessary for religious
occasions, for the training of
soldiers, and for the dramatization of legends.
But, in 1958, despite all the
controversy over dancing, it is
still an outlet for expression.
For that reason, the Club is
sponsoring a formal, as an outlet for those who are suffering
from mid-term tension.

A New Look At The Cat
I suppose that when a play
goes on and on playing, a second appraisal of it might be
excused.
As a matter of fact, I have
just had my first look at "Cat
on a Hot Tin Roof" and a second look at the criticisms.
I like Rupert Buchanan's
somewhat detached, Olympian
criticism, but it would not send
people to the movie. "The struggle between the force of life
and the force of death" sounds
too high-falutin to carry much
popular  appeal.
What, then, is causing the
line-ups on Granville and Seymour?
People like to get down to
cases, the generalities come
later, and in some people they
don't come at all. A secret of
Tennessee Williams' genius is
the inductive method he uses
—starting writh particularities
there is something for everybody.
Deductive playwriting, arriving at particularities through
generalities, leaves the man-in-
the street out in the street.
"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" is
built up out of cases. One cast-
is the father-son relationship—
the strong parental figure and
his two sons, one of whom is
recalcitrant, the other submissive. I venture to say that most
of us either are in a situation
of this kind, or know of one
very well; it rings true.
The popular way to handle
the situation, in a play, is to
leave the money to the recalcitrant, preferably reformed,
son. Vide "East of Eden." Of
course in real life this seldom
happens. The son seldom reforms,  seldom  gets the  money.
I sound like a disappointed
remittance man, but it's the
truth. "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"
strikes  a   blow   for realism,   for
at least the submissive son gets of this play seems to have been
some of the money. so refined, so subtle, that many

about "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"
is that it is all there—all the

If "Cat" was not subtle
enough for Mr. Buchanan's palate, it seems to have been far
too subtle for Mr. Gilmour's.
He had a lot of trouble reconciling the luscious Miss Taylor
to her love-starved life. Why?
Because a strong hint of Brick's
homosexuality was "crisply removed in the Brook-and-Poe
screenscript."
Who thinks the strain of
homosexuality was removed?
If there had been any more of

"The Picnic and other Stories"
is the creative side of Canada's
critic from New Brunswick, Desmond Pacey. The sixteen stories
of the book have been published
in German and Canadian magazines, on the CBC programme of
short stories, and in American
publications, They have been
compiled and attractively bound
by the Ryerson Press.
You may remember that Dr.
Pacey is the author of "Creative
Writing in "Canada," which in
1952 became the bible of students of Canadian literature, and
of "Ten Canadian Poets", which
in 1957 stressed the past achievement and present scarcity of
good poetry in this country. He
is also, for information's sake,
the head of the English Department at the University of New
Brunswick.
Yes, the reviewer is stalling.
The stories have twice received
the approval of authorities; the
author himself is an authority;
the book's foreword was written
by a man who knows his task. I
agree with them, but with reservations.
The booj| has only one really
disappointing story, that being,
THE PICNIC, and other stories by. Desmond Pacey. Foreword
by Roy Daniells of ihe Department of English, U.B.C. The
Ryerson Press, $3.95.   143 pages.
oddly enough, the title story. It
is also the most ambitious of the
stories, for the author attempts
a recurring symbol, and does not
succeed. The background of the
picnic, though possible in real
life, is too too ironic for the lesson learned. The story isn't big
enough for that irony, the recurring symbol, the characterization of Edith, the wife, and the
grand lesson learned all around.
"The Picnic" only stresses that
Dr. Pacey's simpler construction
in the other fifteen stories is of
necessity, and not of choice.
There are however, some really good stories. "The Odour of
Incense" has a really masterful
control of atmosphere. "Silo",
despite the deus ex machina
(improbable) cyclone, has a good,
if crude, understanding of the
frustration of these poor farm
people; "The Ghost of Reddle-
man Lane" is a pretty good
ghost story.
Some of the stories are sketches, "The Hired Man", for example, and some are sketches
plus death  for action, as "The
Misses York", and "That Day In
the Bush".
"No Young Man" is probably
Dr. Pacey's personal acknowledgement of death as a part of
life, but it somehow an ineffec-
tuar story. "The Mirror", another seemingly personal story,
is the story of an attitude of an
evening, but this one seems
forced.
Dr. Pacey writes an entertaining short story. His style is occasionally studied . . . phrases
such as "slow, steady stride" and
"thin, edgy voice" and "empty
milk glass" and "cold grey
eyes" together in one hundred
words o{ print lose their effect.
Sometimes h i s conversation,
such as the description of his
crime by the prisoner in "The
Picnic", is downright improbable. His description is sometimes really evocative.
These are not the short stories
of a master. They are the improving work of an amateur. Or
perhaps your reviewer is being
characteristically Canadian.
— SHAWN HAROLD
Our French A Success?
Dear Editor:
After reading the article
"Our French a Failure" in your
October 30th issue of the Ubyssey, I feel myself under the obligation to send you this letter
in order to ease my guilty conscience.
Poor Shawn Harold!
She was daring enough to
launch herself into the dangers
of not only writing in French,
but also having her article submitted to the slings and arrows
of a Law student who is also a
French scholar.
How il made me wish I had
had him as a student in French
last year, instead of having to
put up  with  Miss  Harold!
She was, indeed, a very
troublesome student; she suffered, along with a few others,
from a strange disease. As her
critic says, she was "enthused
with a sense of atmosphere,"
and she was part of a gang of
eleven horribly French babbling
third year students.
"Listen,  Mademoiselle,"   I
would say to Shawn, "When
yoit go to France and scream
'Je suis perdu' instead of 'Je
suis perdue' no-one will believe
you are lost. If you insist on
saying, 'Donnez-moi c e 11 e s
pieces' instead of "Donnez-moi
ces martinis,' who could be expected to piece together such
babble? All you might get, anyway, is seven babbling Martinis."
For a whole year I tried to
make her speak English, instead of offending me with her
grammatical errors in French.
Helas! Mr painful enthusiasm corrupted the whole class!
After fighting desperately,
stubbornly, to convert this
Francophile, I must now confess that I am ashamed of Miss
Harold and, of course, myself.
We are both responsible for this
"Our French a Failure" article.
I hereby take a solemn and
watery oath that I shall never
again permit my students to
produce any French,  until it is
perfectly, grammatically, thor
oughly, technically and entirely correct.
Then only can we try to go
to France and say to the porter,
as we get off the train in Paris:
"La plume de ma tante est dans
le frigidaire."

Medical  Faculty  Plans  New
Buildings For Future Students
By MADELINE BRONSDON
The Medical Faculty is the
most inconspicuous faculty at
UBC, primarily because the
bulk of it is not on campus. Out
of 220 students, only 60 are
regularly here.
LACK OF FACILITIES
This unique situation of having a campus off-campus is due
to the lack of facilities at the
university for medical students.
To meet the requirements of
the faculty, an on-campus medical Basic Science building and
hospital are proposed.
These buildings will provide
the adequate experimental laboratories and teaching provisions the faculty now lacks.
The medical hospital — a
teaching - research-service type
— will be a valuable addition
to Medicine.
Plans for the Basic Science
building are not official, but
the site will be in the vicinity
of the Wesbrook Building.
Meanwhile.w here is the faculty of medicine? With the
exception of the 60 first year
students, it carries on its activities at the Vancouver General Hospital at 11th and Heather, in an atmosphere of efficient activity.
Medicine is a selective, demanding faculty. Out of as
many as 400 applicants, only
60 are accepted yearly, and in
the present 4th year class, only
20 remain of the original first
year class.
The programmes of all four
year have one thing in common — hard work. First year
medicine alone follows a schedule of the usual lectures and
seminars. Second year students travel from the Med
Faculty huts on the Main Mall
of the University campus to
various community hospitals in
the city, doing research and
preclinical work.
Third and fourth year students are at the General, with
a 5Va day week and many unscheduled hours of on-the-spot
slinical and surgical observations.
"LONG HOURS"
The average med student has
a work week varying between
60-75 hours in lectures, seminars, study and observations.
Most fourth year students have
an average day, depending on
what department they happen
to be working in, of anywhere
from 9-10 hours or more, which
includes work on case histories
and examinations.
These future doctors, obviously, have a minimum of leisure hours. Their work is foremost in their minds, partially
out of necessity, partially out of
pure interest. Out of contact
with the campus, they cannot
enter into campus activities.
How do they feel about this?
How do they react to being cut
off from all campus life? And
not having their own facilities?
"Well," says Dr. Campbell,
the Assistant Dean, "They are
not too happy about it, understandably."
Medicine would like to be on
campus, of course; basically for
the advantages that on-campus
buildings would have — partially for the social advantages.
But it is a fact that the percentage of med students who

are inside the gates spend a
minimum of their time in extracurricular activity. This is
more a follow-up of the traditional behaviour of first year
medicine than anything else.
But the faculty within itself
is active. As Bill Thomas,
fourth year put it, "We are a
closely knit group, and when
we do have a party — well it's
really a party."
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
Each year contributes to thel
social    calendar.    An    annual
skating party is put on by the
first year students; second year]
is in charge of the Medical Ball I
in the spring — which has one|
of the highest standards of entertainment of any faculty acti-l
vity;  third    year    gives    thel
Christmas Party; and an annuall
picnic is taken care of by the]
fourth year class.
LOOK TO FUTURE
But the yearn for participa-l
tion in the University life is]
still there. Looking to the future (the near one they hope)!
the students hope to have theirl
own medical buildings insideI
the gates. And with this, a[
unified body, functioning withj
better co-ordination than now|
exists.
And if these indefinite plans I
materialize, the campus, nowl
far removed from Medicine, [
will come within its reach. Will
the students enter into under-1
graduate activities?
One medical student voiced I
the opinions of his fellow classmen when he said, "If we were
on campus we would do more,
because we would have access |

|can't get near the place."
Inira-mural sports are an ex-
lampJU of the activities which
I interest med students, — some
I of whom are    good    athletes.
But. at present, an hour lunch
period just isn't long enough to
come in from the General, get
into football strip,   and   play
lull — and be back for clinical
observations at 1.30.
Some med students even if
on campus, would not or could
not enter into the usual college
life. One student said earnestly, "I took part in campus activities in my three years of pre-
med, and I'm so interested in
what I'm doing now that I really don't think I would care
less."
The common hope of all four
years medicine is a new kind
of existence — a closely related
faculty with the facilities of

Stewart Madill, fourth year,
comments, "while the primary
aim of this hospital is naturally
service, a medical-faculty hospital, would have provisions
for the service and teachings,
which we need."
The Medical Faculty has perhaps more obstacles to overcome than most others at University, and have, up to now
carried their burden well.
No one, even in the Medicine
itself can predict the future.
All Medicine can do is hope
and wait.

minion Government should foot
the entire bill. We are the people who are going to benefit
this country most in the future.
Why don't we prepare ourselves?"
Art Barnstable, Arts 11, said
to the first question, "no."
"It would enable fewer people to go to University, and
just by looking around you
you can see that if even fewer
people went to university the
world would sure be a boring
place."
"The money should come
from God. Where is he going
to get it? The Church."
Somewhat less facetious answers were received from Patty Knoakes, Arts III. "If the
money must come from somewhere, and the people downtown aren't willing to pay for
it, I suppose the studentz must.
After all our fees are much
lower than, say, Mc Gill's."
Ray Sjeck, Commerce 1,
said, "I'm completely in favour
of having the fees paid. It is
justified. But I don't want to
have  to pay for it."
Asked where the money
would come from if he didn't
pay, he said, "I feel that a
more thorough job of public
relations should be done in order to get funds from industry.
They can afford it, and we
can't.'

AWS  is  the  Associated   Women Students.
Gail    Carlson,    president    of
WUS,    urges   voters   to   mark
! their  ballots   in  favour  of  the
j change for these reasons: WUS
| does   not   accurately   name   the
i organization but implies that it
j is merely an undergraduate so-
| ciety.   WUS   is   often   confused
i vvith  World University Service.
Finally,     by     changing     thc.
name   to   AWS,   the   possibility
of forming a national organization will increase.
