"Does Campus Tory Victory
Foretell Socred Defeat?"
This is the first in a series
of Ubyssey debates on current
campus issues.
Today's question: "Is the
Conservative victory in the
campus Mock Parliament election indicative of B.C. political opinion" is debated by
Social Credit club president.
Kenneth Benson; LPP club
president, Jim MacFarlan;
Conservative, Brian Smith;
Liberal, Richard Sonley, and
Lyle Kristiansen of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation.
Moderator is Ubyssey News
Editor, Al Forrest.
Moderator Forrest: "Does the
Conservative Mock Parliament
victory indicate that Conservatives will win the next provincial election?"
Kristiansen (CCF) "No. They
have no MLA's in the House. It
is extremely unlikely they will
win enough seats to form either
the government or the official
opposition."
Sonley (Lib,): "Even if they
had a personality like Diefenbaker to lead them in B.C. it is
unlikely they could win."
MacFarlan (LPP): 'There i.s a
real possibility ol electing a
labor-farmer government. Bul
unless the CCF, LPP, trade unions and fanners come together,
the danger of electing a Tory
government always exists."
Benson (SC): "Conservatives
win? Impossible! Social Credit
will stay in for many years."
Smith (Cons.): "A Conservative victory is quite possible.
There is no reason for the federal Conservative tide to stop."
Forrest: "Did the Mock Parliament election    indicate    any
shift in BC's political thinking?"
Kristiansen (CCF): "There was
a swing toward the left on the
campus and I think we will see
a swing to the left in the ne t
provincial election."
Smith (Cons.): "Socialists are
always looking for trends at the
slightest flutter of the political
eyebrow."
Benson (SC): "The campus
election didn't prove anything at
all. The voters didn't consider
the real issues involved."
MacFarlan (LPP): "The campus election showed increasing
support tor labor and the left
wing. It also showed dissatisfaction with the corrupt Socreds
and the two old line parties.
Sonley (Lib.): "I think the
Mock Parliament election indicates federal political thinking—
not provincial."
Forrest: "Richard, what p.irty
do you think will win the next
provincial election?"
Sonley (Lib.): "I don't know.
It will be a contest between the
past popularity of the Socreds
and the growing popularity of
the'CCF."
Forrest: "What do you a.s a
Liberal think will be the reall ,
really big issue in the next \,*.-:•-
vincial election'.'"
Sonley (Lib.): "The corruption
of the Socred government,"
Forrest: "What do you think
will be the big issue, Jim'.'"
MacFarlan (LPP): "Corruption in government and the Social Credit sellout of our natural
i resources,"
'     Forrest:    "What    party    will
i win?"
MacFarlan: i don't know. I
| hope a united labour-farmer par-
j ty will form the next govern-
J ment. The campus election result shows that it's possible."
| Forrest: "Who do you think
; will win, Lyle?"
Kristiansen (CCF): "We will.
There is a great deal of enthusiasm at trade union-CCF conferences and the attitude of the
farmers is favorable."
Forrest: "What will be the big
s issue for the CCF'.'"
Kristiansen: "The alienation
of our natural resources resulting in the disinheritance of the
! people of B.C."
Benson (SC): "The big issue
will be the actual accomplishments of the Social Credit government over the past six years
compared with the former administration."
Smith (Com;.): "There; is a lack
of confidence in the Social Credit government because of corruption and because of slipping
provincial revenue,"

Student council may probe
prices charged by the campus
bookstore for textbooks.
Council told NFCUS committeeman John Auld they would
launch an investigation if ho
could build up a case,
Auld raised the issue by
pointing to a textbook that
sells for sixty cents more
on campus than in downtown stores.
The textbook is Elementary
German by Fenling and
Paulsen, selling for $4.40
here and $3.80 at stores
downtown.
Said Auld:
"If this discrepancy exists I want to find out why."
"If there is that much difference in one textbook it won't
hurt to look into other prices
being charged by the bookstore," Auld said.
Council    Monday    night    advised Auld to look into a report
filed by a council investigating
committee four  years  ago.
Auld   Wednesday   called
upon students who "may be
able to help me" to contact
him.
"I want to determine if a
probe is justified before proceeding,"  he said.
Auld introduced the issue into
NFCUS committee m e e ti n g
Monday noon. The issue was
turned over to council Monday
night. Council advised him to
see if he had a case and then
bring the issue back to council.

At a time when the provincial government of British
Columbia is under fire for the policies of its power commission, it is strange that little interest in the matter seems
to be beinfg taken by the usually rabid anti-Social Credit
faction at UBC.
The UBC Social Credit Club either has brought or
will bring every cabinet minister out to campus during this
session, and students should now be planning intelligent
and revealing questions to ask the next government speaker
about the statements of Mr. H. Lee Briggs.
(Tentatively, the next cabinet minister to appear at
UBC will be Lands and Forests Minister, the Honourable
Ray Williston, on December 2. The Ubyssey will publish
full details of this appearance when it is confirmed).
Another worthwhile activity politically-minded students could be engaging in at this time is to negotiate to
bring Mr. Briggs himself to speak here,
Mr. Briggs, after all, is the instigator of recent controversy over the power commission.
He has offered, publicly, to make appearances ail over
the province to put forward his views on the power commission.
Are there no students on this campus who have questions they would like to ask Mr. Briggs about his recent
and widely-publicized statements?
We students are often touted as the most critical of
citizens. Let's take an active interest in this Briggs-Power
Commission matter and preserve that reputation.
Free Love
Editor. The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
This is my first year at UBC
and also my first year in North
America,     I   enjoy   life   very
much here, but am sad because
there is something missing.
This "something" is lhe free
Jove societies which are so popular in my native land of Sweden. Many were the happy
weekends I spent with my
friends. Here, thing's are different, and life seems very dull
by comparison.
I am surprised that a country
so technically advanced as
Canada is so backward socially.
If University students knew
what they were missing. T am
certain they would form a free
love society of their own,
Yours sincerely,
SIG OLAFSON,

How About It

Dear Sir:
NOTTINGHAM, En-land.
(CD—Girl students at Nottingham University, where men
outnumber women r,y Iwo to
one are being asked to "go
Dutch" or pay their own way,
on dates.
In a message to new girls
from "all the boys" the students' newspaper says: "We
love you all and adore your
company, but don't forget our
grants aren't any bigger than
yours."
How about it girls?
PETER KEBB,
Comm. II.
English 100 Notes
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
This letter is in reply to Miss
Wendy Amor's letter to the
editor which appeared under
the by-line "Frosh Exploited"
in the last issue of Ubyssey.
Miss Amor begins her letter
by stating that since first year
students have yet to face a university exam they will pounce
on any "sure-fire" crutch that
is offered to them. She intimates that the persons selling
the set of notes in question offer them as "sure fire".
This is not true. When being
offered the notes, the student
is explicitly warned that the
notes are not a summary or
synopsis of the material; and,
that they supplement rather
than supplant their lecturer's
notes. There is no high pressure sales talk; the student is
given plenty of time to read
them over and decide.
She goes on to point out that
the notes are only ten pages
long and that this fact is unnoticed. Aside from the questionable value of using the physical length as criteria, she
blithely uses a very vague physical measure: "ten pages," she
says.
Now ten pages can contain
anywhere from 4,000 to 10,000
words depending on the size of
type, the spacing, etc. This set
of notes could have been deliberately expanded to 15 pages
had they been typed with standard size type and standard
spacing.
Furthermore, padding could
have been resorted to.
Then, by Miss Amor's criteria, the notes would be worthwhile. Further, most first year
students can count up to ten
and they do notice this fact before buying,
Along the same lines, she
suggests that the student can
not judge the value of his purchase since he has never taken
this English course, nor written
an exam here before. Notwithstanding thc many students unfortunate enough to be taking
this course the second time who
have bought a set of these
notes, she underates the mental
capacity of first year students.
One could, by the same argument, question the value of anything being sold for the first
time to anyone.
The very fact that hundreds
of students have bought these
notes indicates that they do
help in overcoming their "little
experience . . . with all the uncomfortable   abstracts."
The fact that the notes have
sold well indicates that their
overall reputation is good.
Have you heard of a "lemon"
that has continuously sold itself despite its poor reputation','
Miss Amor switches from
distorting the facts (consciously
or unconsciously) and slates an
outright falsehood: she asks
how can "Death of a Salesman," "The Glass Menagerie"
and "Pygmalion" be condensed
into less than a page.
Firstly, the notes are not a
condensation but an analysis.
Secondly, these plays are
treated on three pages, not one,
She questions why the English Department does not produce its own edition. Well,
which of the dozens of different versions of members of the
English Department would be
picked and who would personally devote the time to seeing
it through?
I don't believe that the first
year student is as stupid and
naive as you make him out to
be, Miss Amor. On this very
campus, hundreds of students
in second and third year courses (including English 200) have
bought similar notes for many
years. Do you classify them as
ignorant and inexperienced?
How about yourself: did you
buy a set of English 200 notes?
Yours truly,
LORNE BRYCE
Vive lo Difference
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
May I, through your paper,
invite C. B. Meeres Esq. to
pack up his blue blazer, gray
flannels, white shirt and plain
blue tie and go back to where
this attire is the recognized
uniform, or else here to do as
the Romans do. His statement
that "the different forms of
male attire seen on the campus
range from the hideous to the
amusing" has two faults: firstly, he insults every decently
dressed male faculty member
and student; and secondly, he
includes himself in the hideous
to amazing range by excluding
only the lawyers while he is in
Arts IV.
Against the suggestion of C.
B. Meeres Esq. that the authorities issue a ruling on this matter, I offer several arguments.
First, individual freedom is
a treasured feature of University life; second, it is rather
inconvenient for people who
work in labs or change quickly for P.E. to wear a coat and
tie; third, it is more expensive
to have suits and coats dry
cleaned than to maintain neat
sweaters and cardigans, it may
even be that the sweaters are
cleaner than the coats.
C. B. Meeres Esq. docs not
specify what exactly he terms
appalling, hideous, dreadful
and billious. My reference to
sweaters and cardigans stems
from mv third year of observation of the most common sartorial phenomena on the campus which I cannot find more
objectionable than the drably
uniform crumpled gray flannels of some English institutions.
If uniformity and regimentation is what he wants, then I
can only say "Vive la difference!"
I am not an educational psychologist; still I object to having any bloody Limey tell me
what to wear at UBC.
Yours truly,
P. II., Commerce II.
Abolish the Totem
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Last year, at this time, a
campus-wide controversy was
raging over the issue of whether or not: to include undergraduate pictures in the Totem
(UBC's official yearbook). This
year, such an argument was
avoided because il was generally accepted that undergraduate
pictures would not be included.
Many students, including myself, are of the opinion that an
Yearbook without, these pictures is not really an Yearbook
in the truest sense of the word.
This belief was substantiated
this year when Totem subscription sales took a drastic nosedive. No doubt this drop can
also be accredited partly to the
'extreme' style of the book, but
the exclusion of the undergrad
pictures, I believe, was the biggest *i;igle factor responsible.
The argument that the Totem
Editorial Board falls back on is
that the mechanical job of sorting and laying out pages upon
pages of head-shots is dull and
thankless. This is certainly
true. Secondly, it is felt that
since the campus population is
growing by leaps and bounds
annually, it is impractical now
and will become even more so
as the size of the student body
increases.
There is but one solution in
sight. This solution is within
easy grasping distance. And
that is to abolish the Totem and
have them replaced by the
Yearbooks of the various undergraduate societies.
Arts and Science is planning
to have its own annual in the
very near future. The Engineers, of course, have their
Slipstick, and the Foresters and
the Commercemen also publish
annual records. And they are
not averse at all to printing pictures of the undergrads as well
as of their grads. It is both
natural and desirable that, as
the University grows, the job
of putting out an annual be
divided amongst the various
faculties.
Now it remains for ASUS to
make the next move towards
publication of their Yearbook.
The subsequent move is obvious.
Abolish the Totem. It has
outlived its usefulness.
— INSCRUTABLE
Despicoble Egoism
Editc*, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Friday's noon meeting with
Mr. J. Graham Parsons of the
U.S. State Department revealed
some fine things and some very
unpleasant things about UBC's
"select" student body.
On the positive side of the
ledger, the good attendance
seemed to indicate a healthy
interest in the world affairs
and more specifically, an interest in the foreign policy of
a country which concerns us
most directly.
On the other hand, some very
unpleasant truths were revealed about our "elite" students.
I am referring to the behaviour of some students during
the question period, which followed Mr. Parson's address.
There were a few students
present who were so inflated
with a good opinion of their
owTi knowledge of foreign affairs that they had become
mere bloated facsimiles of a
well-informed student. Their
despicable egoism necessitated
their drawing attention to
themselves continually by ill-
timecl interruptions of the
speaker.
Intelligent questions were in
order, and Mr Parsons demonstrated his ability and willingness to answer these. The
"experts" on foreign affairs
failed to realize that by their
assinine remarks they were revealing the utter vacuity of
their own minds.
Irregardless of our own view
en any subject, courtesy demands that we allow a visitor
to express himself freely, and
answer questions  fully.
Surely a man like Mr. Parsons, with adequate background
in and knowledge of foreign
affairs knows more about the
foreign policy of his country
than some of our dear student
whose minds thrive on vapidity.
Yours truly,

Win Says Colombo Plan Molds
World Spiritual Co-operation
By ALLAN CHERNOV
The Colombo Plan has been, and still is, a molding force in the development of spiritual
co-operation amongst the nations of the world.
This is the view expressed by U. Win, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Burma to the United States and Canada, in a speech Tuesday noon. He said as well,
that needy member nations derive from the pia n a sense of participation and thus an increased
sense of responsibility.

sible to cure cancer without
surgery.
They don't know when the
successful cure, or cures, will
be found, but they are working
on it.
So said Dr. Sidney Zbarsky
of the Department of Biochemistry  noon  Tuesday.
In a talk to the Pre-Med Society Dr. Zbarsky pointed out
that although treatment by surgery is now the most successful
means of curing cancer, it is
hoped that satisfactory chemical
means will be found.
ONE APPROACH
One approach in chemical research is to find chemicals
which will stop the metabolism
of the malignant tissue, and
thereby wipe it out. Unfortunately, those chemicals which
have so far been produced do
not differentiate between malignant and healthy, and destroy healthy tissue as well.
Another solution is to develop
a chemical which will stop the
metabolism of the tissue, but
will allow the normal tissue to
regrow. Again there is the
problem of differentiation by
the chemical between malignant
and healthy tissue.
PROGRESS
Dr. Zbarsky would not say
at what time in the future satisfactory chemical cures would
be forthcoming, but he did note
that excellent progress has been
made in this field ia the last
tw1o years.
Dr. Zbarsky also pointed out
the difficulties and very high
cost   of   research   of  this   type,
Criticism Of
BCE Prices
B.C. L.P.P. leader Nigel Morgan will tell "What Is Behind
The Power Scandal" Friday
noon in Buchanan 106.
He will criticize the prices
charged by the B.C. Electric for
power and the profit the company makes, according to campus L.P.P. club president Jim
MacFarlan.
Mr. Morgan has led the B.C.
L.P.P. party for twelve years.
Viewpoint Of
Social Work
Mental illness should be
looked at from a social viewpoint, according to Crease Clinic social work instructor Miss
F. McCubbin.
She told students Wednesday
that the social worker's job is
to build on the healthy part of
the personality.
Miss McCubbin also pointed
! out that now all patients are
I given continued treatment even
| if their case is considered hope-
! less.
SHIRTS
Professionally Laundered
aid in the form of medical
equipment and assistance, aerial survey equipment, logging
and fishing techniques, and assistance in highway planning
and administration.
Win pointed out that the existence of the Colombo Plan
has helped greatly to deter
Communist influence in Southeast Asia by lessening' poverty
and increasing technical knowledge.
He also pointed out that the
assistance now given represents
only a fraction of the needs of
the countries of that area, and
that growth of the plan is not
only desired, but necessary.
FUTURE   PLANS
At the Seattle conference,
which Win attended, plans
were discussed for the coming
year.

CRITICISM
Gigi  Efferv
Gigi, played by Leslie Caron,
is the story of an eighteen year
old girl in Paris at the turn of
the century. Louis Jordan, the
most talked about aristocrat in
Paris, tires of his shallow surroundings and becomes friends
with Gigi. Gigi is apparently
the only member of the entire-
cast who remains untainted by
the superficiality of the prevailing upper French Society.
Jordan is at first amused, later
interested, and finally totally
infatuated with this child who
is  so shockingly  sincere.
The entire screen play is a
parody of the effectation and
vanity known to the French
aristocracy of that period. The
setting   never   once   leaves   the
drawing room, and every

of  Gigi  herself  is  a   protJ

Miller Looks   Back
Radsoc has acquired a two-
hour recorded interview with
Henry Miller and will play it
over the campus network tomorrow (Friday) at 2 p.m.
Miller, who once shocked
North American readers with
his graphic description of the
sexual aspect of life in Paris
in "Tropic of Cancer" and
"Tropic of Capricorn," i.s now
sixty-seven and lives in an artists' refuge hy the sea at Big
Sur,  California.
In the interview Miller speaks,
of writing, of Paris, and of the
necessity of living brightly in
the machine age, talking on
and on colourfully, zestfully,
giving t h e unmistakable impression that he holds not a
trace of regret for his wild
youth.
lie was born in Manhattan's
east   side   in   1891,   the   son   of
a tailor of German descent. In
1928 he went to Paris for the
first time and returned to spend
many  years there.
Although he arrived later than
the first bunch of Americans,
Miller's paean of expatriate joys
was one of the best.
He writes like someone talking, and on hearing him talk,
one discovers that he talks
much as he writes. There is a
persistent enthusiasm in this
learned grandparent of the Beat
Generation.
—R.A.B.
I don't really want to write
this review. I persuaded the
editor to let me have "Doctor
Zhivago" because I wanted to
read it, and of course, I got
the book on the grounds that
I comment on it; which means
1 must write a review.
Most of the timp when a
critic falls upon a modern book,
unless that critic writes for the
pay of someone interested in
pushing the kind of literature
the book represents, the critic
must rate the book as inferior.
He does not rate it as inferior
in comparison with others of
its time; he rates it inferior
in comparison with the accepted
standards of quality.
It is difficult to bc as good
as Shakespeare, or Milton, or
Tolstoi—therefore,   if   a   writer
is not as good, he is inferior.
Once the critic has spotted the
inferiority, and the cause of
it, he is on his way. About
Hemingway he can say, "Good
stuff, but not great because E.
H. is not concerned with t h e
mass of the people or the weight
of history"; about Eliot he can
say, "Magnificently learned,
but singularly without compassion."
The critics's standards are
always—or should always be—-
the highest, and part of his task
is to point out where and why
the modern writers do not meet
this standard. If he works at
his trade hard enough, the critics soon becomes quite adept
at this. He has fellow critics
from whose writings he can
borrow,  and he has the  infalli
bility of the highest star

What is the main consideration in the choice of the Players'
Club Fall Plays? The greatest
happiness for the greatest number, apparently. To be more-
precise, a play which has parts
for sixteen new members will
be considered superior to one
which has only three- parts.
Obviously the number of good
one-act plays having such large
easts is limited, and therefore
this policy is hound to lead to
the presentation of interior material. Various expedients have
been resorted to in the past in
an e:;Kort to combine interesting drama and the Club's "jobs-
for-ali" programme; most ol'
them aesthetically indefensible,
e.g., the cutting of Synge's
three-act "Riders lo the Sea"
until its running time was a
miserable thirty-five minutes.
This caused Barrie Hale to complain in this column last year
that "there is a dearth of good
one-act  plays." He should have
said, "good one-act plays with
large casts"; want of space prevents a comprehensive list of
suitable one-actors here, but let
us suppose that the Club had
presented this year, in addition
to "The Lesson", Ionesco's
"Chairs" and Strindberg's "Miss
Julie." There are enough competent actors on campus lo fill
the ten parts in these three
plays, a n d a double purpose
would have been fulfilled by
their performance: the Provincial University Drama group
would have- provided the kind
of stimulation one expects from
a Club which should always
have before il the intention of
raising intellectual standards,
and the audience present would
have formed the nucleus of lhe
steady public necessary if the
Club is io recover from the financial anaemia caused by its
own careless diet as well as by
the insufficient transfusion of
funds   from   au    unsympathetic
A.M.S. Give us more plays like
"The Lesson", shed this mock-
democratic ideal of a role for
each recruit, (the logical conclusion of which i.s a cast of

may be some members who will

capacity after graduation, but,
for the present, we will expect

rather than the finished product. Even so, we will be more

Far Out Films
BENA SHUSTER plays the
fourteen year-old Jewish girl
hiding with her family from
the Naiis in a warehouse attic
in Amsterdam, in the Barnstormers' production of "The
Diary of Anne Frank." directed
by Dorothy Davies, in lhe Georgia Auditorium December 8 to
13.
Three films of unusual interest will be shown at noon today in the Auditorium. The
feature, Carl Dreyer's "Vam-
pyr" is a horror classic; of the
short subjects "Le Chien Anda-
lou" is the shocking surrealist
cry of Louis Bunuel and Salvador Dali, and "Lot in Sodom"
is a recent American depiction
of Lot's trial in the wicked,
city, replete with almost every
sexual symbol Freud thought
of.
"Vampyr" ls considered as
inferior to Dreyer's two great
films, "The Passion of Joan of
Arc" and "Day of Wrath," but
superior to the horror films
which were popular in America
at the time (1932). The plot of
"Vampyr" is subordinate to the
effect of horror achieved by
images, suggestions, and almost
surrealistic lighting and photographic methods.
"Le Chien Andalou" (1929)
is surrealistic. Familiar things
are thrown together in altogether new and illogical patterns, and things happen for no
discoverable  reason.
Director Brunei has warned
that those who seek to explain
everything in the film do so in
vain.
And British film authority
Roger Manvell says, "It is unlikely this film will ever be
explained rationally. It is a
bitter protest by a man who is

Now you see why I didn't
want to do this review. It's
easy to toss bricks at someone
readable but not magnificent.
Unaffected by the work of the
Fitzgerald who wrote all but
The Great Gatsby, you remain
♦detached, alert, often mildly
amused.
But when you become enmeshed, seduced by an act of
love as great as "Zhivago" you
can emerge only incoherent,
tripping over your feet; a n d
like Peter after the third denial, recognize your master in
a gasp of revelation that reduces
intellectual admiration to emotional  revelation.
You are made to storm at

the acts of his body: and at

this has not been in vain.

kind of thoughts you have
about the writing of the first
half of the twentieth century.

When something like "Doe-

are ill prepared to offer an
evaluation. You had been hitting dinky curves f o r years,

it might be; or because it
proves that a Christian Society,
no matter how bumbling, is always superior to a totalitarian;
not just because you are left
knowing that in time the Christian spirit of Russia will rise-
again and push the communists
into limbo; but because at thc
same time as you know all this,
you know that the old doctor
has been a person as real as
ever walked through the pages
of a book. You know that his

that the people he lived vvith

The magnificent "other woman," of Zhivago's illicit but
magnificent love affair; his

are the people who appear in
the truest of books. Zhivago is
a timeless figure. He has lived
in other times, in other place-.;,
his soul subjected to other- tyr-
ranies.
The question has been raised:
Would "Doctor Zhivago" have
been, considered such a great

claustrophobically wrapped in

who suffers from passions
which his upbringing somehow
forces him, to suppress.
"The famous scene of the
man held back from the woman by the ropes which attach
him to tw(o priests, two pianos
and two dead donkeys may well
symbolize this, if it may be said
to symbolize anything but the
repulsion it miust excite in the
spectator.
"Bunuel's later and more im*
portant film, "L'Age D'Or,"
amplified the hatred he revealed in "Le Chien Andalou,"
and showed him to be the most
courageous and single-minded
of the surrealist film-makers.
For him film-making was no
experimental exercise, no game
with images and montage. It
was a rebellion which threw its
angers in the face of the audience that they might understand more fully the mask of
their so-called culture."
"Lot in Sodom" is an application of the techniques used in
the most twisted. Godless of
European movies to the Biblical story of the good man in
the sinful city. Perhaps t h e
reason for its inferior force is
that with the European films,
technique wras often inseparable
from t h e conviction of those
who made the films; whereas
in "Lot in Sodom" the Biblical
story merely provides an opportunity, a framework, for
exercising said lurid techniques
and Freudian imagery.
