MacKenzie calls for
more university aid

ATHLETIC DAY HAD SOMETHING for everyone, even the amateur gymnast. Athletically inclined students were exposed to
the barrage of athletic displays and team showings in the
Armory at UBC's second annual athletic day Thursday.
"Package deal" objected

the method of presentation of last spring's package deal referendum.

Twelve freshmen are contesting four positions on the frosh
council.
In addition, all .students are
voting on a referendum that asks
grad students be exempt from
the $24 Alma Mater Society fee
after their first year in grad
studies. They also pay a $12
grad student entry fee.
Grad students feel that they
should not have to pay for facilities, such as the Brock, when
they are already paying for their
own social centre, Thea Koerner
house, said grad student president Bob McAndrew.
Student council has endorsed
the fee exemption-

PRESIDENT ACCLAIMED
Elected by acclamation earlier
were Ed Yewchin, president,
Chris Wooten, men's athletic
representative, Marylile Martin,
women:s athletic representative,
and Bob Cruise, chairman of
special events.
Council cannot change fees or
decide on money matters involving more than $1000. With more
than 700 grads on campus this
year the referendum issue concerns money in excess of -16,800.
Canadian universities will be reserved for "brains" and
geniuses" unless more financial aid is forthcoming from the
federal government, University president Dr. Norman MacKenzie said Thursday night.
Speaking in Charlottetown,
Prince Edward Island, Dr. MacKenzie called for new lederal
grants to universities with expensive professional s c h aoi.s
such as UBC.
LIMITED TO FEW
"We can, in fact must, if
monies are not forthcoming,
deny higher education to many
of our sons and daughters, and
limit our enrolment rigorously
to the "brains" and "geniuses"
and high I.Q.'s," the president
said.
"The ordinary folks in that
case won't get in.'r'
Dr. MacKenzie criticized politicians as being more interested
in spending moneys on highways
than developing higher education.
In calling for additional grants
to institutions with professional
schools, Dr. MacKenzie said in
effect there must be a division
between universities and colleges.
HIGHER LEVEL LOSING
He said the "universities cannot continue to operate efficiently "on the basis of the present formula and policy, which
results in the same support going
to the less expensive operations
in the lower level institutions as
to the more expensive and higher
level.
""My suggestion is that in addition1 to 'the present per capita
and per student grants made by
the federal government, this government should make substantial
additional grants, perhaps on a
per student basis to those institutions with the expensive professional schools and the advanced
research and graduate departments and faculties."
Dr. MacKenzie said an increasing number of colleges seeking
degree granting charters may
soon deplete financial and staff
resources in Canada.
"My long experience in higher
education has convinced me,,.- ,r
the   total   resources   which   ire
available to any province and in.
Canada  as  a  whole  for  higher
education are v;e r y definitely-
limited.
". . . . Unwise dispersion and
dissipation of these limited resources may and must result in
inadequate resources for any or
all of our institutions."
"At very least, definite limitations should be placed upon the
further multiplication of these
institutions and upon the extent
of the work which they may propose to do."
PROVINCES EQUAL
Dr. MacKenzie said he, as a
member of the Canada Council,
had some responsibility for the
uses made of capital grants and
revenues from the endowment
fund.
"My basic attitude and .recommendation has been . . . young
people in each province were
equally entitled to the same
amount of federal aid for higher
education as the people of each
and every other province. I have
also insisted that the provinces
themselves should have the basic
decision as to how these federal
monies should be distributed
within the province," he said.
Dr. MacKenzie described an
alternative scheme put forward
by some Maritime provinces.
The scheme is that "Federal
grants to universities should be-
pooled and distributed not on a
basis of equality between the
provinces but on a basis of the
numbers of students enrolled in
the various colleges and other
eligible institutions."
MacKenzie added that "this
would be more advantageous to
my own university and province
than to any other in Canada, but
in the present state of Canadian
education, I do not believe it
would be fair or equitable."
for the debate.
Last month, council rejected a
motion presented by Law president Chas. McLean censuring
the' method of presentation of
the referendum.
Wednesday's debate was sponsored by the Law. Undergraduate Society.
MISPLACED INTERESTS
Student vice - president Eric
Ricker said students are more
interested in buildings than principles.
.t He said if the two buildings
had been presented seperately
both would have been defeated
as students would have given
neither the required two-thirds
majority.
Bruce Fraser, second year law
student said the objections to the
referendum are coming so late
they are weak.

Frosh prexy 'installed' in stocks
Campaigners framed by engineers
By KEN WARREN
Frosh campaign speeches
were interrupted Thursday
noon by hoots and hollers
from an overpowering horde
of engineers.
About 150 redshirts surrounded Arts 100 chanting the
Engineers' hymn. They
brought with them three frosh
candidates locked in stocks.
There was less than 70 frosh
assembled to hear the speeches which had just started.
v v t*
"Okay, let's keep it quiet
and see what they have to
say," said an engineering
spokesman.
"In every campaign speech
. . . ," started Ed Yewchin,
already elected frosh president by acclamation.
"That's; enough," said a
voice frorrl the rear.
"Yeh," rallied his mates.
"We are, we are, we are ..."
broke Yewchin's indecision.
He was replaced by Marilyn
McMeans, seeking an executive member post.
"Fellow frosh and engineers," she began.
The redshirts had a laugh.
They thought it was funny
when Marilyn said something
about united we stand, divided we fall.
They thought it was funnier
when she said frosh will have
a voice this year on student,
council.
"In my high school and extra curricular activities, I.
would like to say . . . ," she
carried on.
"Censored," said a voice,
considerable laughter.
"I have a relatively light
arts program and . . . ," said
Marilyn.
•f.     if.     ip
"Naturally," said another
voice. Much laughter and
heckling.
"These people can't be heard
by the people who are going
to vote for them tomorrow,
would you please keep the
noise  down,"   butted  in Jan
Owen, last year's frosh vice-
president who was chairing
the meeting.
"Where are the voters,"
asked, an engineer?

and let's get this thing over

"We got plans for these guys

to the three frosh candidates

'US trade relations
By MIKE HORSEY
Americans regard Canada as
nothing more than another U.S.
state, Arthur Laing, former
leader of the B.C. Liberal party
told a noon-hour audience Wednesday.
Laing said that Canada should
take a firmer position in its
trade relations with the U.S.
"We -are regarded with no
more- respect than one of their
states. It is riot .their fault
though,, we have not made ourselves heard."
He said Canada must make a
frank and open statement of her
minimum trade requirements.
"We must tell them that we
need another $400 million worth
of export trade to equal our import trade with them."
Laing also predicted the Conservatives would win the next
federal election, but with a;
greatly decreased majority.

Dr. John Conway and Stuart
Robson, UBC representatives at
last weekend's national WUS
meeting in Ottawa, have submitted a 56-page list of textbooks to the Canadian national
office. The national office will
now check UBC's list against requests for books received from
other quarters.
About 7,000 books were collected by WUS in a book drive
last spring for Japanese and
Pakistani universities. Only 10
were suitable for the universities
and the rest now waiting allocation from the WUS offices.
UBC has also received a list
of American institutions -ii* need
of texts from the WUS national
office in the U.S.A., Dr. Conway
said. "These will be actively followed up," he added.
Last resort for unwanted
books will be the world headquarters of WUS in Geneva.

School has begun at the university for more than 1300 students who are earning their degrees at night.
They will attend lectures in

Wayne Hanson, also seeking

UBC gets top band
says new organizer
American band leader Samuel
Davis will form a concert band
at the university this year.
Davis, who was director of
the Whitworth College band at
Spokane,, is looking for students
interested in orchestral music.
"As we "get more of the performers at UBC who have not
already signed up, our band
should compare favorably with
any in North America."
Interested students may apply
at the department of music.

Package deal
He said the council relied on
the intelligence of the students
who, they are sure, would vote
for two buildings for the price
of one.
Ricker said sample votes before the referendum showed
there were two narrow points of
view clashing. One point of view
was for the student union building and against the sprots arena.
The other was vice-versa.
Rolf Weddigen, Third-year
Law student, said students were
deprived of their rights and
there was no reason for council
representatives to limit tl»e
choice.
He said. it was perfectly feasible for both buildings to be
presented on separate referen-
dums.
McLean, stepping down from
the chair, s a i d it took five
months to realize the administration would put money into the
student union building for food
services if the sports arena was"
not built.
He said they could put their
money elsewhere but this is the
most economical.
Weddigen said food services
would have been provided no
matter what the administration
said at that time.

WUSC to request more
student council money
OTTAWA  (CUP)  —- Student councils should expect  to
have requests for more money for the activities of World University Service of Canada directed at them in the near future.
Gibson,   national
Dr. A. J
chairman of WUSC, said Friday
that local WUSC committees
were not getting the grants they
should from their councils "simply because they are not asking
for them, or are not asking at
the right time."
He urged delegates to the 16th
National Assembly of WUSC at
Carleton University not to be
hesitant in asking for money
from their local governments.
He said contributions from
the local level to the national
and international programs of
WUSC should be made uniform.
This would ease planning at the
national level, he said.
Local WUS committee chairman Stu Robson and Prof. J. S.
Conway are representing UBC
at the Assembly.

'Be it resolved... /
"Be it resolved:
"That due to a lack of preparation on the part of the
discussion leaders and the participants or through the failure
ol some other mechanisms of this conference, it does not
justify the expense and should be abolished in its present
fdrm."
The above resolution was one of the few wrung from
delegates at the seventh annual leadership conference at Camp
Elphinstone last weekend.
For a secortd after the motion was read the Elphinstone
dining hall was silent. Then the professional backpatters swung
into action. They praised the conference and the organization
artd the idea and just about anything that came to mind. No
orte had much of a chance to speak in favor of the motion.
It was defeated.
We agree that the committee did much hard work in the
preparation of the program and planning of the entertainment.
We disagree with the idea that hard work automatically means
a successful conference.
The instigator of the motion, Eric Mitterndorfer, president
of the University Club's Committee, said that "not one solitary
new thing" pertaining to the proposed student union building
was brought up. Mr. Mitterndorfer might have pointed out
that too few of the "student leaders" at the conference knew
what the problems were. How then were they supposed to
arrive at any sane solution to them?
We agree that it was necessary for the information to be
desseminated but should it cost almost. 1200 student dollars
to inform 100 people?
The organization of the program left much to be desired.
The discussion groups were far too short. It is almost impossible to get into a topic in any depth in less than one
hour. An indication of the effectiveness of the groups was the
fact that no .resolutions came from them. They had to be
generated from the plenary sessions, in which the resolution
which usually come from the discussion groups are usually
discussed.
The conference chairman told the final gathering, in effect,
that it should come up with a few resolutions to justify the
expense of the weekend. He probably never realized that
resolutions had not come forth because the delegates were
confused and ilL-informed on the issues.
Little had been done to prepare them for the topics of
discussion. The form sent with each invitation was a pale
imitation of what it should have been.
Committees will argue that students will not take time
to read vast quantities of information if they did get it. Perhaps these students should stay home. Perhaps this is an indication of lack of interest in the conference. The difficulty encountered in getting delegates to attend the conference might
be another indication of a lack of interest. If it is, then perhaps
the conference should be abolished in its present form*
Its present form. That's the key pihrase. Why not get the
delegates together for a few "information sessions" on the
campus before steaming up Howe Sound? Perhaps the size
of the conference should be cut to include those interested
enough to avail themselves of the opportunity to become fully
informed before discussing current campus calamities.
Police patrol
Jack     Ornstein
Are Canadian police looking
for subverters? Are they looking for those who would undermine our government and all
that it's supposed to represent?
They are said to attend political
ahd labor meetings incognito
and to secretly take pictures
of picketers and marchers in
nuclear disarmament parades.
It was even reported that the
RCMp approached some university students but failed to
solicit aid in their, search —
much, I suppose, to their chagrin. They seem to have moved
from police to political work.
When the police of a state move
effectively to political work,
that state is in danger of becoming a police state. And
aren't police states what we
are opposed to?
Are there plans to start a
committee to investigate "un-
Canadian' activities? Do the
police consider rabid anti-
semites un-Canadian? What
about anti-orientals? Are they
trying to combat these attitudes? Or are they restricting
their activities to communists?
Do they plan to restrict the
actions of Canadian communists
by non-verbal means? (Tune in
next week . . . ).
I don't think that the police
Communist Club Prexy
will have any difficulty finding Canada's subverters. They
need only look in any mirror.
If they're trying to protect
freedom of enterprise, they've
already lost—restrictions have
been in effect here since the,
turn of the century. If they
seek to protect our freedoms
cf assembly and speech, they're
going about it in a highly self-
contradictory  way.
I don't know where their activities will lead but I have
my suspicions. And I have the
example set by the committee
on un - American activities
which has for years been subverting the principles upon
which the constitution of the
USA was founded. No organization in the U.S. today is more
thoroughly un-American than
it. It thrives only because most'
Americans feel incompetent to
judge the best way to operate
their country—by the Russian
police state methods or by the
American house committee
methods — there being little
difference.
My point is this. If we wish
to "defend freedom", why put
the squeeze on people who say
things that we dislike? If communists are opposed to freedom
of speech de we have to show
them that we too are opposed
to it in order to defend it?
This is absurd and self-contradictory. It may seem strange
but it is true that, as A. Meikle-
john indicates in Political Freedom, we must be prepared to
let people advocate even the
elimination of that very principle which allows them to so
advocate. When the public isn't
free to examine alternative
ways of running governments,
even the most tyrannical of
systems possible, then where is
this freedom we seek to defend?
I haven't heard of one act by
which the communists in Canada have tried to 'violently
overthrow' our government.
They seem to be attempting
the 'overthrow' by peaceful
means — by running in elections. And I'd just as soon keep
them out by voting for another
party than by threats or force.
Anyone who resorts to these
methods ori the political level,
when a vote would do the job,
is, in my opinion, un-Canadian.
And you can call me soft-headed or urge me to go to Russia
if I 'like communism' so much
—but then you just might have
missed the point.
We too believe in democracy
Editor
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
The legally constituted Communist Party of Canada firmly believes in the traditions of
democracy. We clearly state
that our aim, a Socialist Canada can be achieved through
the parliamentary system, traditional to the history of our
country. In this context the
campus communist club holds
public* meetings, classes and
debates; we participate ih Parliamentary Council; we issue
our own bulletin; and we campaign around current university problems. In other words,
we work In basically the same
fields as the other four political
parties on campus.
Yet, as events on b o t n
Thurs., Sept. 21 ahd Friday,
October 6 illustrate, there are
students on this campus who
do not believe in democracy.
There are those who feel that
the only good opposition is a
silenced, humiliated or dead
opposition. There are those students who insist on shouting
■down   the    speaker   or   even
worse on throwing lunch-bags,
apple-cores, etc.
Take for example, Friday's
meeting at the Brock Lounge.
Hiding behind the backs of
others, courageous groups of
a n t i - Communist "freedom-
fighters" maliciously threw
lunch-bags, garbage, and sugar
cubes. Fortunately no one was
iniured. It has happened before!
Some students, however, report it's their democratic right
to boo and throw garbage. If
so, it was also Hitler's democratic right to smash the opposition with his stormtroopers'
clubs, to illegalize the Communist Party, and later, to destroy countless innocent lives
in concentration  camps.
To say that such a repetition
is impossible is to neglect, the
rise of the John Birch Society,
the nazi narty, and the klu
klux klan in the United States.
Already their Canadian coun-
+or-narts are showing their ugly
heads.
Therefore, to those fascist-
minded who would use anti-
Communism to rob us  of our
democratic rights; to those who
are so disrespectful to their own
Brock Hall as to plaster the
walls with filth and corruption,
the students of this university
must answer with a unanimous
"No-Not-here."
Freedom of speech is as previous to the Communists as it
is to the Liberals, Conservatives or anyone else. The Campus Communist Club will,
therefore, continue in its activities. There will be more public
meetings and open forums.
And to those who will listen
and wish to argue back, we
welcome!
But to those who want to
throw abuse and garbage—no.
As one brave student at the
"No War Over Berlin" meeting said, "Let's remember the
words of Voltaire, 'I may not
agree with what you have to
say, but I will give my life
for your right to say it'."
So let it be at UBC.
Yours truly,
CHARLES  BOYLAN,
President,
Campus  Communist Club.
The "Hollow and infirm of purpose'
Editor,
The Ubyssey*,
Dear Sir:
It is small wonder that the
nations of the world are on the
verge of a third world war—a
conflict which might have at
least unpleasant side effects —
assuming (a) university students represent a random sample of the population and (b)
the attitude of the West is a
mere extension of the attitude
displayed by many university
students toward any of their
fellowmen who happen to be
motivated by an ideology which
differs from that of their own.
A proposal to live in peace
with a people who slander you,
insult you and belch at you is,
after all, certainly not appealing.
We cannot logically point out
the errors in something we do
not understand, and we cannot
understand something if we refuse to listen to those who do
understand it. (If you disagree,
or if this seems vague, be patient. I'm sure the Christmas
exams will serve to make my
point.)
I am referring specifically to
the infantile attitude some students show towards any visiting member of the Communist
party.
I do not maintain that Red
beliefs or actions should not be
questioned, for indeed they
should. But for the most part
the questions are shouted ai
the men instead of being directed to them—the objective of
the inquirers being to see who
can register the loudest "guffaw" on the "guffaw-meter".
(The magnitude of the "guffaw" is taken as being directly
proportional to the degree of
enlightenment, the Standard
Guffaw Unit (sgu) was recently
established by a group of diligent American scientists from
the John Birch Institute who
were able to record under field
conditions the degree of redness of Chief Justice Earl Warren's face by estimating the
degree of redness of his political beliefs, and to standardize
this as unity.)
But I digress.
The tantrums of these challenging "thinkers" leads one to
believe that they are: (a) warmongering (b) argumentative
(c) hollow and "infirm of purpose" and/or (d) have controlling interest in fallout shelter
firms.
Yours truly,
G. F. Fieber,

A few not connected with the
$76 million hospital planned for UBC
By MIKE GRENBY
The Faculty of Medicine is
looking for $5 million.
When it gets it, plans for
the newest, most modern hospital in Canada will be complete. The hospital will be
built on the UBC campus.
At present the total cost of
the project, $16 million, is to.
be split three ways, said Dr.
John   F.   McCreary,   Dean   of
the Faculty of Medicine.
The provincial government
pays 50 per cent under the
current hospital insurance
plan.
The federal government contributes 15 per cent.
And the  remaining  35  per
' cent has to be produced by the
local community which will be
served by the hospital.
NO   LOCAL  COMMUNITY
But there is no local community.
So, since the university hospital will be serving the whole
province, the remaining $5
million will have to come
from the B.C. municipalities
and/or from various other
sources, Dean McCreary said.
He felt one of these sources
should be increased support
from the government at Ottawa.
"I feel the federal contribu
tion should be greater than
just 15 per cent," the dean
said.
"Since the federal government pays this amount toward
the construction of ordinary
hospitals in Canada, they
should give more aid to special institutions such as this
one."
CANADA-WIDE CAMPAIGN
After all, progress and discoveries made here will eventually benefit the whole nation, he said.
In addition lo negotiations
with the federal government,
a Canada-wide campaign is going to be mounted to Obtain
the necessary remaining funds,
Dr. McCreary said.
The hospital will have 410
beds, 310 of which will be for
treatment of acute cases. The
phychiatric ward will contain
60 beds and the remaining 40
beds will be available for
chronic and rehabilitation
cases.
"We need the hospital to
provide superlative treatment
and to set the; standards for all
hospitals in British Columbia,"
said Dr. McCreary.
"UBC now ranks third in
research in Canada, with most
of the work being done in preclinical areas,"  he  said.. The
new facilities will provide
even greater opportunity for
advances, he added.
Allowance has been made
for further vertical expansion.
The hospital may eventually
have 700 beds but this "is looking a long way into the future,
said Dr. James M. Mather, assistant dean.
The University hospital will
not   Obviate, the necessity  of
using the downtown hospitals,
Dr. Mather Said.
TRAIN  OFF CAMPUS
Medical students will still
spend their senior years Of
training off campus, he said,
but they will learn the fundamentals and basic work much
more effectively in the new
hospital.
The large Vancouver hospitals operate-on'ah "open" policy, that is, they are open for
any and all doctors to practise
in and consequently there is
little room for teaching and
intensive research, he said.
The Faculty of Medicine has
prepared a brief which it has
sent to the Union 6f B.C. Municipalities, urging'it to support
the project. :
It' outlines the main advantages to be gained from the
proposed hospital.
Theiiospital will:
• permit a comprehensive
training centre to be evolved
in the province. This will allow development of the team
concept, it will be "a laboratory in human biology", which
will produce fully fledged, effective health teams. ■ '
• provide the training of
personnel for the chronic care
and rehabilitation program
which was announced by the
provincial governrhent last
year.
• provide a research centre
which will allow evaluation of
new methods of treatment.
• serve as a laboratory for
the B.C. Hospital Insurance
Service.
• become a referral centre
for niany of the problem cases
in the province.
The brief continues: "This
hospital will be of equal value
to all citizens of B.C. rather
than to any local community,
arid, in the case of the University hospital, 'the municipality'
is the province as a whole."
The hospital will be the integral part of the proposed
Health Services Centre. The
centre, which has been ih the
planning stage for over two
years, is already starting to become a.reality.   ■. ,  .

BIRTH OF A NATION (directed by D: W. Griffith, U.S.A.,
1915)
Perhaps the most influential
film in the development of the
cinema as an art form, BIRTH
OF A NATION tells the story
of the American Civil War and
the Reconstruction Period. It
has been the subject of constant controversy since its
premier in 1915 because of its
historical exaggerations and
negro stereotypes, and it is
presented in this series for its
historical importance to the
cinema, not for its philosophies.
, The film features Lillian Gish,
Robert Harron and Mae Marsh.

THE  FILM  THE  GUNS  OF  NAVAR-
ONE doesn't make you think. Its big
sound, big screen, big colour, and big budget combine to make war a game and death
an enviable pastime. Its stars are charming and infallible. Those that have to die
do it beautifully. Villains are eliminated
spectacularly and in profusion. The audience eats grapes.
The story of Navarone is the story of
six men who are sent to destroy two
radar-contolled guns situated in natural
caves four hundred feet above the capricious Aegean. The guns command the only
feasible route to the island of Kheros on
which two thousand British troops await
certain extinction unless a sea rescue can
be affected. The British are determined
that a sea rescue will be effected.
JAMES ROBERTSON JUSTICE AS
CO. tells Gregory Peck, "We're shooting
destroyers through the Navarone channel
next Friday midnight. Those guns must be
spiked by then. Can you do it Mallory?"
"No", says Mallory flatly, "I'd get myself
killed." The CO. is sympathetic but Mallory goes anyway.
The viewer meets the assembled team
for the first time on a quay. There is
something about their attitude of studied
insouciance that leads him to believe
that this is to be a highly successful mission. The leader, Franklin, is nicknamed
"Lucky" and is played competently by
Anthony Quale. He runs their fish boat
on to the rocks during a gale and breaks
his leg in the subsequent foray up the
cliff, thus"" surrendering his command to
Mallory because Columbia Pictures has
a pretty good idea where this one is going to make money.
ONCE ASSEMBLED AT THE CLIFF-
top they move overland to link up with
the resistance. After being subjected to
repeated dive-bombings and straffings
they are betrayed into the hands of the
Germans. Strangely enough we meet a
humane Oberleutnant.' Needless to say
his efforts to obtain information are futile whereupon S.S. Captain Von Braun
enters with rubber hose and diabolical
intentions.
He is duped and Mallory and team escape. The pace quickens, and in the concluding scenes recriminations and dying
Germans vie for the viewers' attention.
Finally Mallory and his explosives expert,
Miller, gain access to the gun cave, lay
the charges, and hurl themselves into the
sea. The klaxons sound and "Rule Britannia" is heard as the "destroyers turn on
full speed for Kheros.
IF HANDLED STRICTLY AS A Documentary The Guns of Navarone would
have been a cathartic three hours of
licensed    mayhem.    Unfortunately    the
status of the stars and tradition demand
complications. Thus we have a conflict
between Mallory and Andrea, a big bear
partisan from Crete played by Anthony
Quinn. The latter has sworn to kill Mallory at the war's end but after very pointedly saving each other from death, their
animosity vanishes in exploding shells.
Stanley Baker plays the enigmatic
"Butcher" Brown. A big man with the
knife in the Spanish Civil War, he has
apparently lost his appetite for the silent
kill. We never see evidence of this but his
remorseful countenance when confronted
by Mallory with the fact suggests the
verity of the accustation. The demolition
man, Miller is portrayed by David Niven.
He has a conscience, a fetching personality, and most of the bad lines. James
Darren plays Pappadimos, the sixth man.
Ten years in the U.S. has turned him into
a hardened killer and, true to expectation
he is never without his machine gun.
THERE WILL BE NO OSCARS
forthcoming but the level of action is
sufficiently high to complement the spattering bullets and exploding lorries which
constitute the major attraction.
As an afterthought . . . Anyone who
enjoyed The Magnificent Seven will be
delighted to know that this is The Omnipotent Six.

A NEW
KINEO
By PETER MORRIS
Does INGMAR BERGMAN deserve a panegyric or is he the Great Panjandrum? If this is a
question you have asked, as many international
critics have, a visit to the Varsity Theatre this
week will provide a categorical answer.
To anyone with a spark of artistic soul THE
SEVENTH SEAL (written and directed by Ing-
mar Bergman, Sweden, 1957) must come as a
revelation of the profound artistry of which Bergman is'capable. Here, without doubt, is ente of the
greatest artists the cinema has produced^ for he
combines ian instinctive 'understanding "of the intrinsic power of the film-medium with an intellectual depth arid artistry tiheqdalled in the
history of the cinema.
It is unfortunate that THE SEVENTH SEAL
is being presented in Vancouver after THE MAGICIAN and THE VIRGIN SPRING for it poses
questions that the latter two films attempted to
answer. What is the place of man in the universe?
Why does man live and die and what lies beyond
death? How can man be sure of the existence of
a God? These eternal questions are framed within an allegorical story,that has all the primitive
structure of a medieval morality play and is filled
with minor echoes of elegiac folk songs and
buffoonery.
The setting is fourteenth century Sweden: a
knight and his squire return from the Crusades
to find the Black Death raging. The knight, after
his wanderings, is no longer certain of anything
and yearns to discover some gleam of spiritual
hope that will reveal a divine purpose for man's
existence. Death appears to him on the seashore,
and the knight challenges Death to a game of
chess in order to gain time to allay his doubts.
Whilst the game is in progress the knight wanders through the countryside and finds the world
in an agony of torment: witches are burned at
the stake; groups of people wend a weary path
through the countryside chanting hymns and
scourging themselves with whips in an agony of
self-abasement; there are reports of the vilest excesses, and omens tell of the end of the world.
The knight prays for some revelation that never
comes; his searching mind asks questions that are
never answered. When the game of chess is over
he resigns himself to his fate.
Profound though the theme is, the film hovers
uncertainly between the allegorical and the real
and the dramatic structure suffers in consequence. One accepts unreservedly the mystical
game of chess in progress throughout the film,
but this jars with scraps of medieval behaviour
that are supposed to be acceptable only on the
realistic plane. The knight, for example, is a
totally allegorical figure, but some of the supporting characters are formally-realistic and can be
accepted only on this plane.
But ibis is a minor criticism
when compared with the overwhelming power of the whole
work — a power which is derived from a unique richness of
cinematography. True, there
are a few scenes where Berg-
man's theatrical background
prevails: scenes heavy in dialogue and slight in those move
ments vital to the cinema. The
dialogue, for example, between
the squire Jons and the painter in the church is presented
with a camera held static before the two actors. Whilst this
duologue is undoubtedly important to the theme it is not of
'such theatrical stagings that the
cinema is made. The dialogues
between Jof and his wife and
Death's enigmatic cloak: What lies beneath the Seventh Seal?
between the knight and Jof's wife later in the
film are subject to the same criticism. For the
rest—it is almost pure cinema.
From the opening shot of a hawk hovering in
a hazy sky to the penultimate shot of the Dance
of Death the photographic compositions are
faultless. With firm compositional lines the viewer's eye is effortlessly guided to the most important elements in the frame; compositions that are
not merely visually and statically pleasing but
which *lso follow from shot to shot in such a way
that the screen constantly dances with intrinsic
movement. The flagellants' scene is probably unequalled for visual power. Dynamic forward
thrusts in composition, coupled with a camera
moving along the faces of the crowd, forceful
camera angles and rhythmic editing never allow
the eye to stray for a second.
The lighting, as expected from a Swedish
studio, is excellent and admirably suits the rich
dense blacks with which most of the scenes are.
cloaked. It is interesting to note the change effected in the density of lighting for those scenes
in which Jof's home life is shown—to the same
softness that is evident in the flashback scenes
for WILD STRAWBERRIES.
The acting? As usual with Bergman's repertory troupe it is superb. Max von Sydow wraps
the part of the quizzical knight around him like
a glove, and Gunnar Bjornsirand is convincingly
cynical as the squire, but it is a newcomer to
Bergman's films who really triumphs. Nils Poppe,
a famous Swedish comedian, as Jof the juggler,
never loses touch with his dramatic character,
never runs amok with the buffoonery inherent
in his part, and with an instinctual sense of movement and gesture makes himself totally credible.
Apart from Victor Sjosirom's performance in
WILD STRAWBERRIES his is the best acting
performance that Bergman has obtained from
any actor.
Two years ago it was still possible to determine whether someone was middlebrow or highbrow depending on whether the name Bergman
suggested Ingrid or Ingmar. Today Ingmar Bergman's name is surrounded by legends, and he is
recognized as one of the great contemporary
Swedes and an artist of international reputation.
On the intellectual depth and cinematic richness
evident in THE SEVENTH SEAL it is a reputation fully deserved.

EDITOR: DAVE BROMIGE
Layout: Jones
:A: what is opera?
must accept the'fact that opera
is built on certain conventions,
f we do otherwise we are like-
1$ to judge it unfairly. The
most obvious of these conventions is that operas are plays
mostly sung, not spoken. We
must realize that music im-
. poses a certain formality on
expression and accept the resulting truth that operas cannot be literally realistic nor can
operatic characters display all
the subtleties of their counterparts in plays. Opera concentrates on projecting basic emotions such^ as love, hate, joy.
The operatic cnaracter there-
"~re is usually created in much
.ess complex terms than the
stage character. The singer then
does not depend so heavily as
does the actor on detailed physical acting techniques. The opera singer acts primarily
through the music he sings.
WHAT I AM TRYING TO
say is that by combining drama
with music, a unique method
is obtained for projecting human emotions. We can see (on
a simplified level) the basic
action of an opera on the stage
but through its music we can
also understand a character's
feelings — often more vividly
thn words alone could express.
Music in this way can give
drama an added dimension.
THIS BRINGS US BACK TO
the plot again and the criticism
that operatic stories are absurd
or silly. While a good plot is
an asset, it is not so important
to an opera as to a play. This
is significant, for in opera the
beauty and expressiveness of
the music are of paramount importance. The plot furnishes a
framework from Which the
music transforms our attention
to the realm of imagination.
Music lifts the story outlined
on stage to a more intense level
of communication. We don't go
to an opera simply to see a
play, we go primarily to hear
how its music can portray human emotions. If we realize
this, imperfections in acting,
improbabilities of plot and the
barriers of language become of
secondary importance.
THE PERFECT FUSING OF
music and drama is a- goal approached by only a few composers. Some will argue that
the end product is a sacrifice
of both musical and dramatic
values, but I don't argue that
opera is either superior to
drama  or instrumental music,
or that it is inferior. Rather, 1
argue that it has its own validity as an individual form of
musical and dramatic expression.
THIS IS MY WHOLE POINT.
Why not give opera a try? The
small investment involved in a
ticket to the "Tales of Hoffman" (there are good seats at
the back of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre as well as the
front) might open a new world
of aesthetic enjoyment. Don't
be misled into thinking that
opera in Vancouver is a stuffy,
formal dress affair or that the
Vancouver Opera Association
is a second rate amateur group.
Go with an open mind, prepared to accept opera for what
it is.

historical importance to the cinema, not for its philosophies.
The film features Lillian Gish, Robert Harron and Mae Marsh.

another   Ustinoffering
"Romanoff and Juliet", in its
fifth week at the Park* is a
diverting Httle Ustinoffering in
the style of "The Mouse Thai
Roared". Though the plot is pre-
jtost^ous, it .ju!>:y3ssgs<es' ''The ;
MoiiseV uproap^usne^S,- principally because' Ustinov, who
directs as well as acts, carries
the laugh load unattended b'*
his supporting cast.
Concordia, an impecunious
but impudent republic of undisclosed location and minute
size, leaps into international
prominence when its president
(Ustinov), whose U.N. vote is ,
required to break a U.S.-USSR
deadlock, abstains o n the
grounds that the eloquent arguments of both sides and the
issue in general are completely
incomprehensible.
Hastening home, the President is informed by his Secretary of State, who is also for
obvious reasons the switchboard operator, that the Rus- .
sian and Americap .embassies
have been 'flooded; ^ith calls
from their ^spectiye .governments :o> d e r i n g immediate
"aid" to fair 'Concordia. '
Concordia, however, notwithstanding offers of last year's
American missiles and the Bol-
shoi Ballet, decides to refuse
aid because they fear the mixing of "good" money with their
"bad" currency will upset the
national economy. This upsets
both the Reds and the Yanks..
Meanwhile, back in the ranks,
Juliet (Sandra Dee) has fallen
in love wiln Igor Romanoff
(John Gavin), and vice-versa,
a plot-thickening circumstance
■with elements of burlesque,
since the young lady. is. the
daughter of the American ambassador, and her suitor, of
cSurse, the son of the Soviet
representative. While his secretary of state is busy selling
bids to "listen in" to both sides,
Concordia's president is seeking
to maintain the tiny country's
status quo by playing Puck
with the politicians and Cupid
to the kids.
Needless to say, the opportunities for displaying Ustinov's incomparable comic acting are profuse, and the viewer
cannot but admire his professional polish.

"THE DISTANCES," BY
Charles Olson, is a collection
of poems that did not fit into
his classic-in-embryo — The
Maximus Poems; Originally
published in the swinging magazines in the past decade, these
pieces cover  the entire range
of  the  poet's  artistic point of
view.  The poems that demonstrate Olson's basic poetics are
by far the best. The series called   "A,   B,   C's"  would  pry  a
little   ray   of   light   into  even
the    darkest   of    the   Auden-
Spender minds:
"Tlie  word forms
on the left: you must
stand inn line. Speech
is as swift as synapse
but the acquisition of same
i as long
as I am old"
And "I, Mencius, Pupil of the
Master" tells the veritable history of poetry as Its. classical
integrity withstood the impertinent   onslaught   of   rimesters
from Milton to Nemerov.
OLSON, FOR THOSE WHO
can still read poetry after the
deluge of nonsense written and
taught about it in the university scene, is the leader of his
generation, the poet whose
life's work is the paradigm for
the art in our time. The Distances would be a good place
for the uneducated to begin
reading, because, it requires no
"in", no glossary of terms and
placenames. One must, however, be prepared to expect the
line to obey its own syntactical
impulses, not the dictates of the
heavy foot.
COMING TO MICHAEL Mc-
Clure's The New Book/A Book
Of Torture, tiiough, the reader-
should be aware of the.poet's
earlier work, because this vol—
ume is a continuation ,©f Mcy
Clure's poetic search. He is-
trying to discover the basic
principles of existence and
simultaneously to express them
in the always-confining medium of the written word. What
am I? How do I know I am

do sensual experiences affect
me?

Marking  ousts
raser model
By LLOYD DRAKE
A new campus parking lot is
sting the federal department of
iblic works $100,000.
The lot, now under construc-
m behind huts on West Mall,
is forced movement of the
raser River model at the ex-
mse of the federal govrnment.
OMPLETED BY NOV.
The parking lot will be com-
eted by Oct. 31, and will hold
>out 400 cars. It will be used
f night school students and
;ople attending special func-
ons on campus.
A new site for lhe model has
■en chosen by the University
id approved by the depart-
ent of public works near Initial Road and Marine Drive.
The model, built in 1948, is
erated by the public works
partment and is used to re-
arch proposed projects on the
/er.
2W MODEL NEEDED
The hew site is 500 feet square
it is all bush. It has no water
pply or electricity. A well will
dug to supply water, power
les hooked up, and the land
2ared.
Equipment saved from the old
odel is worth $50,000 and will
: used in the re-construction of
e model at the new site.
A new model is needed im-
ediately because during the
st session of Parliament the
>vernment voted $3 million for
iprovements to the New West-
inster harbour and these must
b researched on the model.
OVERNMENT WARNED
The government was warned
>ur years ago the University
ould need the model's campus
te for development.
Total cost of the model from
•the summer of 1948 to August
31, 1961, including construction
and -operating costs has been
8592,635.
Cost of actual projects on the
river was $24 million. In 1958
$200 million worth of cargo was
landed and loaded at New Westminster.
Professor E. S. Pretious of the
department of civil engineering
at UBC, who is in charge of the
Fraser River Model Project,
said:
"A new model is needed immediately. The department of
public works should be prodded.
There is too big an investment
involved to be thrown aside."
He said that maybe "the old
site should be called the Simon
Fraser parking lot."
Stewart   urges
regulations   study
Student organizations have
been urged to acquaint themselves with regulations governing Alma Mater Society functions.
Club bookings for campus
rooms must be made through
the AMS office's receptionist,
said Activities Co - ordinator
Doug Stewart. The same department must receive notification
10 days prior to off-campus AMS
activities.
"Serious penalties may result
from failure to notify the AMS
office receptionist of cancellations," said Stewart.
For organizations anticipating
expenditures, Co - Ordination
Control Forms must be filled out
and returned to the receptionist
10 days prior to the function.
Totem spruces up
in sales effort
Totem editors are sprucing
up their book in an effort to
increase flagging sales.
John Lancaster, editor of
the book, said the campus activities section will be expanded and more information oh
faculty events included.
He said there is a possibility
that in future grad pictures
will be excluded from the
yearbook.
Delegates to the Leadership
conference voiced criticism of
the content and scope of
Totem.
"The ideal Totem would be
a week by week diary of campus life," Lancasted said.

GIRL ON CAMPOS
She's sure of herself, sure of her
manners, sure of her grooming.
And oddly enough, she finds it
takes only a few extra minutes
to check hair, make-up, stocking
seams, and hemlines.
Of course, grooming is a matter of many things. Perhaps you,
like many other girls, are particularly self-conscious on certain
days of the month. But there's
no need to be. Not if you use
Tampax. Worn internally,
Tampax is unfelt and invisible
when it's in place. You can tub
or shower any day of the month.
And that means you never
have to miss a day of
feeling clean and fresh.
Tampax prevents odor too, and
irritation and chafing. You'll feel
so much more comfortable, so
much daintier, that you'll naturally be more relaxed.
Try Tampax internal sanitary

Police are
overzealous
says NFCUS
KINGSTON (CUP)—In the dying minutes of its final congress
sessions here, National Federation of Canadian University Students delegates express disapproval of the alleged actions of
•an RCMP officer investigating a
nuclear disarmament organization at Laval.
The agent is alleged to have
contacted co-eds who were members of the Combined Universi-
armament (CUCND) committee
"ties Campaign for Nuclear Dis-
on the Laval campus.
The three-part resolution proposed by Laval calls for NFCUS
disapproval of the agent's actions, and disapproval of the excessive new s p a p e r publicity
given to the investigation. It also
asked the federation to get in
contact with the department of
justice and request that such actions do not occur again.
In presenting the resolution,
Laval president, Renaud Santer-
, re, said he was neither supporting nor Condemning nuclear disarmament, and that he believed
that the RCMP was necessary.
"But", he said, "it is the duty of
the police to respect the law,
protect citizens, and not intervene in questions of a political
matter."
m He added that the actions of
the agent could have ruined the
reputation of the members of the
CUCND at Laval and stopped
the movement on the campus.
Deadline extended
for war conference
Deadline for applications to
attend a conference on "causes
of war" at Sir George Williams University in Montreal
has been extended to 4:00 p.m.
Friday.
Interview times for applicants will be posted on the
door of the office of student
president Al Cornwall.

NFCUS is unconcerned
concerning with drama
Withdrawal of Montreal's Sir George Williams University
from the National Federation of Canadian University Students
is being taken lightly by other universities, a local NFCUS official said.
The possible development of a
scholarship scheme is one of the
series of projects in the federation's proposed program.
In the final session of the Congress, Laval University proposed
that the federation "initiate steps
towards receiving one or more
Latin American students on Canadian campuses". It further suggested that this plan might be
expanded to a scholarship
scheme.
The federation pledged itself
"to full co-operation with the
students of Latin America" to-
wards achievement of justice,
economic development, and political rights.

KINGSTON (CUP)—Delegates
to the National Federation of
Canadian University Students
Congress today supported a resolution which would increase
emphasis on the bilingual character of the forthcoming fifth na
tional seminar, although its exact location and theme have not
yet been determined.
Laval University of Quebec,
proposed that one of the two co-
direclprs of the seminar be
French-speaking, and that special attention be given to a balanced choice of speakers in both
French and English, as well as
to the technical means of simultaneous translation.
TecWy elected new
chairman of WUSC
OTTAWA (CUP)—Delegates to the sixteenth assembly of
the World University Service of Canada held here last weekend elected a new chairman and expanded their activities overseas.
Dr. J. F. Leddy, vice-president
and dean of Arts and Sciences at
Saskatchewan was elected chairman replacing Dr. James Gibson,
dean of Arts and Science at
Carleton who became honorary
vice-president.
He was also elected honorary
president of the National Federation of Canadian University Students at the annual conference
in September. He is chairman of
the Canadian UNESCO Commission.
Other officers elected to the
student-faculty organization
werer Jacques Gerin, (U of Montreal) former president of NFCUS
who was re-elected vice-chairman; Robert Church, Alberta;
Alan Gloden, McGill; George
Hare, Mount Allison; David Hiil,
Queen's; Alexandra Johnston,
Toronto; and Clement Richards
of Laval.
Expanding its role as the welfare arm of the Canadian student
WUSC will:
• join the Canadian University Service Overseas,
• supplement its present student levy with "gifts-in-kind"
for students abroad, ahd,
• strive to meet a goal of 10
cents  per   student  so   that   the
profits from  the Treasure Van j
can be used for its international j
program. 1
The decision to join CUSO
makes WUSC the third large
student organization to do so.
The other two are NFCUS and
the Canadian Association for
Medical Students and Interns
(CAMSI). CUSO, which is similar
to the American Peace Corps,
hopes to send 100 Canadian university students or graduates
overseas next summer, for a
period of one to two years, to
assist in the development of
countries less fortunate than
ours.
GIFTS-IN-KIND
It was also decided to assist in
this development by sending
"gifts-in-kind" (such as books) to
overseas students. Universities
which have a student levy and
no SHARE campaign were especially asked to contribute to
this project.

Golf, tennis  hope
to regain laurels
UBC's golf, tennis, and cross-country teams are in Saskatoon today, attempting to wrest lost Western Intercollegiate
glory from the Universities of Saskatoon and Alberta.
The golf and tennis teams both
lost their league championships
last year to Alberta.
UBC's runners placed third in
last year's cross-country meet.
This weekend's competition,
however, is only a warmup for
the official championships to be
held at UBC Oct. 28.
The golfers are led by returnees Don Griffiths and John
Curie, plus newcomers John
Morgan and Nick Scarfe.
Griffiths, a lanky third-year
veteran with the team, placed
second in Kelowna's Ogopogo
tournament this year.

And they're not expected to
change their routine much.
Chiefs were winless in four
league games this year, their
first in the league. They lost an
earlier 28-0 decision to the
Ramblers in Seattle.
Game time is 1:30.

First-year man Dave Wight-
man, a former ranking B. C.
Junior, has been added to the
tennis team this year. Also making the trip are two-year veteran
Bob Johnson and Peter Eng, who
played on the team four years
ago.
The cross-country team is led
by WCIAU record-holder Geoff
Eales. Last year, he set marks
in the 1,500 and 5,000 meter
runs.
Another member of last year's
team, Jim MacKay, is back on
the squad. Others are John
Prior, Steve Porsche, Tom Fell,
and Rod Constable.
The women's golf and tennis
teams will also make the trip,
the golf team for the first time.
The tennis team was third last
year.
Monika Ahlen, Diana Lawrence, and Judy Cornwall comprise the tennis squad.

FOR THE BIRDS
By  MIKE HUNTER
Vagrant opinions, erstwhile thoughts, and instant trivia:
#
#
The E'OJerman pinscher, a short-
haired, medium-size dog of German
oiiuin, is a faithful guardian and companion.
This is a filler, found in any small holes that happen to
appear in the downtown papers. I have been reading these
exasperating little items for years, and not very often have
I come across anything any more exciting. This dog item
appeared in The Sun, of all places (you'd think it was the
Burnaby Advertiser, it's so chintzy).
I had almost had my fill of fillers when I came upon
another item, buried between the sports section and the
business page, that completely reaffirmed my faith in pricy
items:
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP)—Esmeralda, a 30-year-old hippopotamus
at the Melbourne zoo, died because
she ate a tennis ball, which caused
gastro-enteritis.
I guess Esmeralda was a victim of those livelier tennis
bslls they use nowadays. It certainly couldn't have happened
in 1927. Anyway, it slhows you what fillers can do—fill—as
they have in my column.
if, if. if.
Noticed the editorial in the athletic day edition that
said "Education is doing—it requires active participation."
Active participation from whom? Judging from the response
by certain managers to Athletic Day, there must be more
than a few uneducated managers around.
President of the Men's Athletic Association, George Turpin said in his message: "This stronger executive (of the
MAA) will be the glue that binds the potentially powerful
body of the MAA • • and make it the respected organization
it should be." "~* '. ,
This year, MAA took over control of managers. The
managers of many sports are just as slack as they've ever
been. The "strong executive'"' still is short at least one member.
Are some of the managers just managers because they
want PE credit and a trip to the Prairies once or twice a
year? Are the strong executives just executives because they
think it's a prestige position (it isn't) ?
The second editorial said let's investigate men's athletics.
Good idea. Athletics, from top to bottom, needs some pep
pills, especially on the student end. Or a good kick in the
pants.
if. rf> flr*
So you thjnk nicely-nicely Gnup's disciples have it soft
because they get their compulsory PE waived? We hear of
one Texas hi|gh school football team that was stripped of
its state championship mainly because of a chap named
Robinson.
Robinson, a 22Q-pound star centre, went to live at the
local fireball when hjs parents moved away, and the town
boosters paid his room and board. Robinson was, of course,
supposedly working for his keep, but "the league decided
his duties were somewhat nebulous.
Robinson was 'hauled .before the commissioners; and asked to explain his duties! His job was to operate the radio, he
said, and tell the police when the fire truck went out.
"But I never needed to," added Robinson. Small wonder.
The town fire and police departments are housed in the same
building.
Football    Birds   out
to   crack   a   tough  knot
By   BERT  MACKINNON
UBC Thunderbirds invade
Saskatoon Saturday in an effort
io unscramble the ties that bind
Jhe Western Inter - collegiate
Football League standing together.
Ihe only two games played
thus far have resulted in stalemates. Alberta rests atop the
league with two points for ties
with the Thunderbirds and Saskatoon Huskies.
OUT-S*DE SPEED
This year's Huskies are the,
complete opposite of last.year's
pathetic team. Last weekend,!
they showed good out-side speed
~nd a much stronger defence to
hold the powerful Alberta Goi-
en Bears to a 21-21 tie.
Thunderbirds have shown they
lack an offenqe that can mount
a sustained drive. This year,
they have depended on the big
play to keep them in the game.
Quarterback Barry Carkner
has provided this spark with the
long pass. In Birds' last outing
against Whitman, however,
Carkner looked shaky, completing only six of 22 attempts.
Saturday's game shapes up as
a great defensive battle. Birds
will make extensive use of Roy
Bianco up the middle, Jack
Shriber around end, and Pete
Black as a target for Carkner's

• . . out for season
passing, in an effort to crack
the Huskie wall.
Coach Frank Gnup is worried
about the favored Birds' chances
however.
"These prairie kids are hard-
noses," he mused. "They hit real
hard.  The  way  our  boys  have
been playing we could get hurt
bad. We don't hit—they do."
EXPRESSES  CONCERN
Gnup also expressed concern
about Birds' lack of offensive
power.
"We've always been suscep-
table to the'long play," he said.
"This year, it's just the opposite.
We hit for the long play while
the others grind out yards. How
ong can we keep getting the
big play?"
The hard-charging Huskie line
won't give Carkner much time
to pass, said Gnup
Birds will be playing without
the services of end Tom Andrews, out for the season- with
torn knee ligaments.
