Douglas Jung ''Canadian, Not
Politician' At Campus Speech
By KERRY  WHITE
Douglas Jung came lo UBC
as a "Canadian,, not a politician,"   Wednesday.
"I come to you, not. as a politician seeking election," he said,
"but as a fellow Canadian." ,
He began his talk sponsored
by the Conservative Club by
quoting a story which he had
written for a down town newspaper last December. This story
Anti Fee Hike Motion
For General Meeting
A motion will be presented to the General Meeting today
urging the Board of Governors to prevent an increase in student
fees at UBC.
Ben   Trevino,    former   AMS
president will make the motion.
It is seconded by Grant MacDonald, Russell Brink, and Peter
Meekison.
The motion reads:
WHEREAS it has been suggested that tuition fees at UBC
will be increased for the 1959-60
season so that UBC students will
contribute a greater proportion
of the University's operating
grant, and
WHEREAS it appears that a
national scholarship and bursary
scheme will be implemented in
the near future, the benefits of
which would be largely nullified by an increase in  fees,
BE IT RESOLVED that the
Alma Mater Society direct the
students council to urge upon
the University's Board of Governors in the strongest possible
terms, the retainment of the
present fee schedule, so that the
criteria for university entrance
will emphasize academic rather
than financial qualifications.
The meeting will start at
12:30 p.m. in the armories, A full
agenda   appeared   in   Tuesday's
Ubyssey.
STUDENT HANDBOOKS
STILL AVAILABLE
The AMS office still has a
limited supply of student
handbooks.
The directory costs 50 cents
unless you are a Freshman—
in which case you get it free
or in your Christmas stocking, depending on whether you
believe or not.
Arts Debate
The first in a series of inter-
faculty debates will be presented Tuesday in Arts 100 at 12:30.
The topic will be: "Resolved
that an Artsman is educated
whereas an engineer is trained.
Two faculty members and the
audience will act as judges, each
making up one-third-of the vote.
dealt with his impressions of
Parliament in his capacity as the
youngest M.P, and the first Canadian of Chinese descent to be
elected  to  Parliament.
"Rather than wait until I became fat, fifty and pompish,"
he said, "I took the opportunity
when I was thirty, skinny and
poor."
He went on to describe how
impressed he was with the tradition of Parliamentary procedure, and how convinced he
was that Parliament was a truly
great education.
"Parliament is probably the
best postgraduate course in the
world," he declared.
He said he realized democracy
has many faults and that he
wouldn't like it if it hadn't.
Jung stated the young people
of Canada must become aware
of the great issues of the day
and take an active interest in
them.
"At no timein the history of
our country have the issues
been as great as they are today,"
he said.
Jung ended his talk by saying, "I am sure that many of
you students will make significant contributions to your
country."
A short question period followed in which Jung answered
one question. The question was
concerned with the statement
in the press that Jung had said
that Canadian students travelling to Russia were briefed before they left. Jung stated that
he had been misquoted.
zHe said that the delegates at
the N.A.T.O. conference had
merely discussed this subject,
ASUS Gathering
Fails-No Quorum
The Arts and Science Undergraduate Society general meeting Wednesday was unable to
conduct any business because
they failed to get a quorum.
Less than 50 students turned
out for the meeting which was
to discuss the new constitution
radified by the AMS Monday.
The society must have 100
members at a general meeting
for any business to be conducted.
Mike Brown, ASUS president,
stated following the 3 minute
meeting that another general
meeting would be called for
Tuesday, October 28.
The constitution will be discussed at that time providing
over 100 students turn out.
Membership for ASUS is open
to all Arts students except
Frosh.
The president of the Frosh
Undergraduate Society is an ex
officio member of the ASUS executive, however.
Brown was criticized Wednesday for not calling the meeting
on a day when there were no
scheduled events.
(Students had a choice Wednesday of hearing Douglas Jung,
Leslie Peterson, or a Beethoven
concert.)
Brown blamed the poor turnout on the lack of publicity received  in  the  Ubyssey.
He explained that the meeting
was originally scheduled for last
Friday.
When lhe ASUS executive
learned that Sir Anthony Nutting was speaking on the campus
at that time the meeting was
changed to  Wednesday.
"At that time we did rot
know two political speakers
would be coming," Brown said,
ASUS had hoped to be able
to have their constitution passed
before the fall general meeting
Thursday,
"If we had had this passed
then we would be able to .go
to the general meeting and say
ASUS was a strong point for
representative government at
UBC.
"If this meeting had defeated
it then we would tell the general meeting ASUS was not
ready for representative government," he said.
One of the purposes of ASUS,
according to the proposed constitution is "to make a better
university of the University of
B.C."
The constitution outlines the
structure of the ASUS executive
and council.
The executive is made up of
president, who must be an up-
perclass man, secretary, treasurer,  publicity chairman.
The duties of the executive
members shall be decided annually by the executive.
The ASUS Council shall have
the power to overrule executive
decisions.
The council, if the constitution
is approved, will have one member for every 50 arts students.
Printed copies of the constitution will be given out at the
ASUS general meeting Tuesday,

Minister of Education, spoke

Not   "Panhandlers
rr
It is indeed unfortunate that the considerations you
presented in your editorial of October 21, entitled: "Must
They Beg", included the slanted and almost slanderous
statements about Commerce Undergraduates and other
"self-righteous volunteer workers" of the Community Chest.
It is you, Mr. Editor, who is self-righteous in your criticism of the C.U.S. canvassers and we feel that in your position you can criticize only the principle and not the persons.
The poor choice of words with which you chose to describe Commerce Undergraduates does much more to discredit your views than our reputation. Such expressions as
"C.U.S. panhandlers" and "the little men with the tin cans"
are. we hope, simply descriptive phrases to attract the readers' interest and not statements regarding the occupation or
personal stature of the Commerce Undergraduates.
The Red Feather Drive on campus is sanctioned and
conducted under the auspices oi the President's Committee
of Charities, which this year, r.s in past years, asked the
Commerce Undergraduate Society ti sponsor the Blitz.

Edi'or, Toe
bvssey,
Dear  Sir:
This move to kill the G.;,:e-
ral Meetings has got me fighting mad! Just because a few
ol' tho sneakers grow a little
dull ihe met tings are described
as chaotic, because not every
student attends they are unrepresentative. Ridiculous!
The Redshirts are expected
to provide light comedy, it's a
tradition, and if the speakers
grow longvvinded a little heck-
lirvg is also traditional. As for
those who don't attend they
wouldn't bother voting for a
representative assembly either,
they are showing that they
couldn't care less how the A'AIS
is run.   Ignore them!
Tsie meetings are called a
waste of time, can anybody
honestly say they cannot spare
one lunch break per term? As
the University grows bigger
and more impersonal, these
meetings, if nothing else, are a
reminder that students run
their own affairs and that the
AMS Council is the servant of
the student body,
We have a good Council, the
lack' of resolutions and the
small turn outs can be interpreted as a sign that we trust
our council, rely on it to do a
good job and have no complaints, Whilst the move to set
up a legislative assembly is an
insult to    both    students and

Hungarian Students
Remember 1956
October 23
"We Hungarians live in the purging fire of the times.    Across
our thousand-year-old history flash the deeds of our heroes, the
bright words of our poets." - (Tamasi).
"The" Call of our blood ranged us with martyrs of bygone
days. Tempered by a decade
of trials, we launched a superhuman effort to save our nation.
Only the Creator knows what
force kept life's flame alight
through every storm. On the
black scrolls of crushed revolts, history record in gilt letters the names of our martyrs.
Yet the past failed to dismay
us or sap our strength and
faith. Rising at the call of destiny to defend the rights of
nations and individuals, we
again manned Europe's outer
ramparts.
"The aged tree of Time sheds
its leaves." (Arany). A lost
generation wanders, stumbling
across the sere remains of the
past, searching for a straight
path through the miasma which
for a dozen years has hidden
the wavering future.
For an instant our small nation sent a ray of light into the
dark revealing the true face of
the madness threatening civilization, tearing aside the veil of
bland hypocrisy. But alas, the
ensuing holocaust reduced our
hopes to ashes. Still, we trust
that the flames at least will
awaken the free world from
its slumber.
No longer can 'any man ignore our monument to freedom,
inscribed with the unforgetable

Purge the SCM
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Student attention should be
drawn fo the remarks made by
Province columnist, Eric Nichol
concerning religion at. the University. Some of them are, to
say the least, objectionable.
For instance, Mr. Nichol
stales: . . ."Also true (in his
time), the Student Christian
Movement was active on the
UBC campus, but mostly as a
cell for young Communists.
When a Student Christian
Movement member talked
about 'Our Father' he meant
usually Lenin."
As the SCM has always proclaimed itself as a Christian
organization it cannot condone
the atheism inherent in Communist dialectic materialism.
Hence, if Eric is right, it has at
times been used as a front for
Communists. This matter
should be investigated, and if
the situation within the SCM
still prevails, all non-Christians
and anti-Christians should be
thrown out of the organization
without delay. If Mr. Nichol
is wrong, he should either explain his statements further or
apologize.
Yours sincerely,
WORRIED,
Arts
Ours is a time of unanswered
questions that   block   creative
force, clip the wings of thought
and cramp the will. What else
could we have done in that
stifling uncertainty than to reply for ourselves and the world
in our own way?
This reply has marked for
us a path from which we may
not stray, the path of human
dignity. In letters of blood it
spells out the duty of those who
should have seen but didn't or
wouldn't.
Now the light is snuffed out,
and again the old miasma
chokes a riven Europe. Terror
grips our towns and villages.
For its valiant stand our youth
has earned prison or exile. The
dreams of our poets have been
trampled. A nation lies in
chains for having dared to
claim its due.
For an instant let us stay
the rush of time and from this
milestone view the road ahead,
True, our lives are shorter by
a year, our wounds still bleed;
but we do not vaunt our hurt.
We seek understanding, not
pity. Remembrance of our heroic dead will evoke, we trust,
not just sorrow but emulation.
Bearing embers of that October pyre to the West, wc speak
in exile for those who cannot
speak. Our voice is the voice
of compatriots who met doom
with a song on their lips. Our
heart beats also for those who
saw death as a release from
dungeons and torture. Being
one with them, our goals have
not changed, only our methods.
Speaking; a.s friends to friends,
we try over and over to rouse
Lampposts
Fditor,   The   Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
After attending the little
gathering Friday m the Buchanan No, 104, organized by our
local commisar, Tovarish McFarlan, T would like to express some thoughts of general
interest.
The University is supposed
to be the .yalhoring place ot
men and women who think. If
they ask some questions from
a lecturer, they want to get
a straight answer on them, The.
idiotic sick-talking that the lecturing comrade tried to sell
after every question, would clo
for an i:>norant mob but for
university students it is insulting. 1 am perfectly aware of
the fact thai communist speakers do not need to answer questions behind the Iron Curtain.
If anyone there were foolish
enough to ask something in a
political meeting, he would get
the answer from security police
thugs. 1 know this from personal experience.
This is a free university in
a free country. I cherish the
freedom of meeting and speech
here but I do not like the way
in which Tovarish McFarlan
infiltrates the audience vvith
thugs which arc probably some
storm troopers of the LPP but
definitely not university students. I noticed several of them
in the audience, I do not like
the world to a realization slow
in dawning.
Perhaps our speech and
admonition still fall strangely
on Western ears. Yet would
any man of honor fail to warn
his host against the arsonist?
And who knows better his cruel
visage than we who faced him
for a decade and hurled his
own torch in his face?
Recalling October, we hear
the blast of machine guns, the
voice of martyrs intoning our
national prayer. You remember the headlines and radio
bulletins. We know that youth
in the West stood by us when
we could not ask this. Now we
ask youth to support us again,
that our voice may be strengthened. At stake is not only the
life of a small nation, but civilization and human dignity.
Trams run now where barricades stood, and the wounds
of shell-torn houses have healed. But our borders are scaled
once more with mines and barbed wire. The rains have washed away the blood of heroes.
Thick prison walls mute the
screams of the tortured. In
Budapest people are forbidden
even to remember.
Only we can voice the
thoughts of those back home;
only we can pay tribute to that
autumn when our youth's
blood stained red the fields and
streets. In plighting our
hearts to the mission fate has
assigned us, we speak also for
those who. under thc shadow
of (he knout, make their vows
in silence. We shall be trim to
our martyred dead — nor will
anything ever still in us the
clarion  call of liberty.
HUNGARIAN STUDENTS

The federal government must
increase its grants to higher education, B.C. Ministerd of Education Leslie Peterson said Wednesday.
Peterson said he saw the need
of universities for more money
but that he could not see how
the provincial governments can
meet these increasing needs.
"Our resources are limited," he
said.
Higher education is of benefit
to the nation as a whole, Peterson said. He added that it is also
becoming increasingly important to national defense.
Asked whether the provincial
government could increase
UBC's operating grant to cover
a possible million dollar faculty
salary increase, Peterson said
he was not at liberty to release
data concerning the coming budget.
Peterson explained that wihile
he agreed with the principle that
a fee increase is undesirable, he
emphasized that consideration
of a fee increase is in the province of the Board of Governors.
Peterson said increases in
funds for loans, bursaries and
scholarships must be increased
if everybody who can benefit
from a university education is
to have one.
This he said would be to Canada's advantage as a whole. He
said the provincial government
is asking the federal government
to take a more active part in
providing these funds, quoting
the Massey Report's recommendation of a national scheme of
scholarships.
He suggested UBC keep parity with the fees of other provincial universities. ''We are Canadians first, and British Columbians second,"  he  said.
Peterson outlined the considerable   increases   Social   Credit

has made in capital and operating grants and in funds for loans '
and bursaries since it took office ■
in B.C. in 1952. j
He said UBC's operating grant
is now $4,334,000  compared  to I
$1,900,000   when   Social  Credit
took office.
All these funds, Peterson said,
have been paid out of current,
revenue. |
However, he said, there was t
a $12 million debt outstanding !
when Social Credit took office i
that had been incurred by the
previous government to provide
for university expenses. This is
now half paid, and the rest will
be paid by 1960, he said.
In addition to this, the Social
Credit government in 1955 authorized a capital grant of $10
million over ten years, and when
it became evident that this was
insufficient initiated the matching grant to the UBC development fund that has now been
brought up to $10 million.
Peterson  Denies Socred
w
Manipulation"   Charges
The reason for the B. C. Provincial Government's $28.00
"home-owners' rebate" is that it is intended to ease the burden
of municipal taxpayers in paying public school costs.
This was explained by B. C
Minister of Education, Leslie R.
Peterson in an address to students in Brock Lounge on Wednesday.
The lecture was sponsored by
UBC Social Credit Club.
Peterson said education costs
are rising for three reasons: —
B. C. has the most rapidly growing school enrolment in Canada;
the average length of a pupil's
education in B.C. is more than
anywhere else in Canada; and
the per student cost of education
in B.C. is higher than anywhere
else in Canada.
Per student cost of education
in B.C. has risen from $73 to
$142 since Social Credit took
office in this province, Peterson
said.
He denied the charge that Social Credit is guilty of "acrobatic" manipulation of B. C.
school funds, claiming that the
provincial government ln fact
pays at least 50% of the total
provincial cost of education.

Canadians At War
"EXECUTION", a novel by Colin McDougall.
Macmillan  Co. of  Canada,  228  pages.    $3.50.
There are books you can read
before lectures, and books that
fill in that half hour's relaxation before that eternal assignment, then there are books that
overrule lectures and assignments. Books that must be read
to the end, till daybreak if necessary. Books that fill you with
joy, then on the next page have
you clenching your fists till
your knuckles show white and
an empty, hollow feeling of fear
and anticipation forms in your
stomach. Books that draw violent exclamations from your lips.
Books that won't let you sleep
even when you've finished reading them.
You live through "Execution." You know the strong soldier John Adam as you know
your brother. Bunny Bazin,
Padre Doom, Mitch Mitchell are
your  iriends.   You   know  wihat
they look like, you know how
they talk. You love Toni, you
detest Major Armstrong, you're
sorry for Evart, and Jonesey
rips  your heart in  two.   Then
there's the wiar: you begin to
hate the war like you've never
hated the war before.
You don't have to be addicted
to war novels to enjoy "Execution," for there is more than just
a war story in this book. The
war is perhaps a means to an
end, a means to help you know
people, not the outside shell
that we see so often, but the
real person inside. As you read
you become alive, you are a
combat soldier. You begin to
feel superior to the guy that sits
at the base, because you're out
at the front all the time. You
live, and your strengths and
weaknesses rise up at you from
page to page.
When you've finished "Execution" you look at the cover and
you live the story again. Ken
Dallison's brilliant cover design
and the life that you have just
lived move you to the point of
screaming. You want to find
fault with the story. You wonder if Brig. Ian Kildare from
Vancouver did have those ice
blue eyes, because all tough,
cool, calculating, heroes of fiction seem to have them, or if
Sgt. DiCillo from Montreal
really did have the leave he
dreamed of just before he was
killed. Could John Adam really
have found two such incredibly
suitable women, in two such
short breaks away from the
front? Perhaps everything fits
into a pattern that is too perfect
to be life.
But you were there. It happened that way. There was only
you and four others left alive
of the original B company, the
28nd Rifles.

It is now time for the definitive analysis of the Beat Generation. Time Magazine has
tried and failed, partly due to
bad temper and insensitivity,
but mainly because no one could
accept the truth from that magazine even if they incontestably
possessed it. Ken Lamlb tried,
and faild—more through lack of
style than lack of thought—and
was also guilty of pomposity, Resounding Cavalierism, and of
using the word "implicitly."
I may as well admit that I'm
not over-qualified for this job.
I've read two novels of Kerouac,
who seems generally acknowledged as the spokesman for the
bcatnicks, and several introductions to other novels written by
Kenneth Rexroth, who seems to
be a sort of Honorary President of the North Beach gang.
But, as always, the keenness'of
my insight will make up for
any lack of formal scholarship.

There is also, for the rest of

being thrust into his poetry writ-
"Inherit the Wind." a three-
act courtroom drama, produced
by the Vancouver Little Theatre
is running for the rest of this
week at the York Theatre. The
play is based on the famous
"Monkey Trial" of 1925, in
which William Jennings Bryan
prosecuted John Scopes, a high-
school biology teacher, indicted
under Tennessee law for having
taught Darwin's Theory of Evolution. Clarence Darrow in defending Scopes lost his case, but
the cogency of his argument contributed greatly to the death of
Mr. Bryan, an embittered man,
two days after the trial.
Jerome Lawrence and Robert
E. Lee, the scriptwriters, have
done a fairly good job. The
first act is broken up by numerous small scenes hindering a
rapid development, which at the
same time fall short of giving the
atmosphere for which they were
designed.
MM, Lawrence and Lee have
made a major blunder in drawing the character of Mr. Scopes.
Scopes appears to have misgivings about his action when he
finds himself in jail while any
normally intelligent man under
the same circumstances would
have prepared for the defence of
his beliefs in the courtroom before carrying them to the classroom. By the second act, however, the play is well drawn together and the action rises very
smoothly to the climax (Bryan's
breakdown).
Part of the flatness at the beginning of the play is due to the
weak acting of the early characters.    The first scene is played
by children, who are usually
rotten actors; these children are
no worse than most. The first
major character to be introduced,
Rachel Brown (Anne Cameron)
who is Scopes' sweetheart, is a
liability for she has urgent need
of a few lessons in facial expression and elocution.
With the entrance of Bryan
(Dr. Jim Roberts) and Darrow
(Fred Hill), we begin to see the
nature of the conflict which is to
ensue. Through the efforts of
the Rev. Jeremiah Brown (Derek
McCooey) at an evening prayer
meeting in the old Methodist or
Baptist tradition the play becomes a cohesive whole and the
characters come to life except
for the occasional intrusions of
Rachel.
Credit is due to Franklin
Johnson, the director, for handling his crowd scenes with balance and his cast of forty odd
people with firmness.   Hill and
Roberts, two very competent
actors, were well cast and well
integrated into the main effort.
Mr. Johnson did not have the
same success with Bill Mills who
played a cynical reporter from
the Baltimore Herald. Mr. Mills
seemed to have private understandings with various other
members of the cast and indulged in a little too much extracurricular acting.
Credit is also due to the organ-
grinder's assistant, Honey, who
gave a well-behaved, sedate and
unruffled performance. When
comparing her character with
the fear, ambition and bitterness
of the human characters in the
play, one may well wonder
whether evolution is progressive
after all.

A letter received today from
John O. Pollock, assistant general secretary of the Y.M.C.A.,
stated it had come from either
China or India and would be
very hard to replace.
The letter suggested the gong
be shipped out to U.B.C. and
repaired here.
If this proves impossible Mr.
Pollock said overseas students
from China or India might be
able to suggest where the University could obtain a similar
gong.
Meekison said the gong was
made of malleable cast iron with
a bronze center piece.
It had been forged and would
be almost impossible to mend.
He had no idea how much it
would cost.
The matfer will first have to
be brought before the Students

They may decide to hold a
closed investigation but the persons who removed and dropped
the gong at two o'clock one

p:30 to commemorate the Hungarian uprising of 1956.
The  Hungarian students will
march from the flag pole at the
end  of  the   Main   Mall   to   the
Memorial Gym where they will
place a wreath. They will then
I return  to the flag pole.
I     In connection with the second
| anniversary   of   the   revolt,   the
, students will exhibit a e.siliectior
' of guns and other relics. Thursday to Saturday  in Bm.-k Hall.
ulation problems were demonstrated using Japan and China
as examples.
"Japan's handling of the problem is both brutal and courageous," he said.
Japan had decided to control
her population by reducing the
birth rate. The number of abortions is now estimated to be
equal to the numbers of live
births, stated Corbett.
China on the other hand has
decided to follow the Marxist
conception of population as
wealth.
To this end she is reorganizing
her whole society into labour
battalions, living in barracks
and working in the fields in platoons,
Agricultural production should
be tremendously increased by
this approach.
China, partly as the result of
this policy will be a great problem. Her population is growing
rapidly. From 583 million people
in 1953 she has grown to 640
million today and will reach
900 million by 1980.
Accordingly, said Dr. Corbett.
Canada might do well to be on
more friendly terms with these
large growing countries in Asia
and extend to them, such aid as
we can. The psychological impact of the aid might prove valuable in   the future.

Bond Conversion Plan
Termed "Gift To Lenders
tf
The present bond conversion plan of the Federal Government
is a gift to the money lenders of Canada, a prominent CCF speaker
told students, Tuesday,
Erhart  Regier,  CCF MP for   the hands ofl^nkTand^other
Burnaby-Coquitlam told students; institutions."
in Physics 201 Wednesday that
the gift amounted to more than
$60 million a  year.
He said this would last for
a 25 year period.
He estimated the cost of the
conversion "comes close to $100
million."
"The conversion loan scheme
will up interest rates across the
country for the next 25 years."
"Most of this money will go
to the money-lenders of Canada,"
he asserted, "because 90 per
cent of the  bonds are now in
He estimated the cost of the
loan change-over would amount
to $45 per family in Canada.
Regier, sponsored by the CCF
club, also touched on education
during his noon  hour address.
He denounced the idea of removing "seat-warmers" from
high schools.
"They are our responsibility;
and there are no jobs for them
now if they were removed from
high schools."
He suggested a different type
of education might be found for
them.
