First vice-president Eric
Ricker, acting in his capacity
as chief disciplniary officer,
made the following statement to
The Ubyssey concerning Homer
A. .Toimlinson's "abduction"
"A report was given to me
shortly before he (Tomlinson)
was to appear on campus that
there was a plan afoot to tar
and feather him.
"Just after this he appeared
at my office and L realized
we'd be responsible for his personal safety on campus.
"Shortly before he was to appear outside, I noticed a large
crowd forming, and made the
immediate decision as chief disciplinary officer of the Alma
Mater Society that we would
not expose him to the crowd
in view of the distinct possibility that he might be injured.
"He spent the entire afternoon in Radsoc offices and was
taken out at 5:30 p.m. He had
supper at the Zete's frat house
and boarded a bus for Seattle."
In addition to having dinner
at Zeta Psi House on the invitation of the fraternity members, Homer Tomlinson crowned himself King of the Zete's

Student Council Monday rescinded Motion 11 of its Oct. 16
meeting whidh gave the council second vice-president control
over copy and placement of certain stories in The Ubyssey.
The paper's editor and staff said they would resign if the
motion was not rescinded. Council voted 13-7, with one absten-
sion, to rescind.
Minute 11 read: "That the second vice-president be directed to
provide, and The Ubyssey to
print, up to 50 column inches of
articles on the impending graduate student fee referendum in
such editions and in such locations within these editions as
the vice-president shall direct."
Council also defeated a motion
put forth by treasurer Malcolm
Scott which would have directed
the Co-ordinator of Publications
to insert up to 50 inches of advertising in The Ubyssey prior
to a re-presentation of the grad
student fee reduction referendum^
Council passed a motion by
Forestry president Al Sawby
which stated: "Whereas The
Ubyssey did not give accurate
adequate publicity to the Graduate Student fee reduction referendum let this council go on
record as censuring this action.
Furthermore, it is strongly
recommended that The Ubyssey
print in a prominent location,
pertinent, accurate information
prior to the time of another
presentation on the above referendum.
And it i$ further recommended that The Ubyssey publicize
similar future events of a general student interest including
referendums, blood drives, elections etc.
And that these articles also
be timely, accurate and in a
prominent location; this information to be made available to
The Ubyssey by the second vice-
president to ensure its accura-
The motion was rescinded after much gavel passing and on-
the-spot   research    in    Robert's
Rules of Orders.
On the 13-7 vote, Chairman
Alan Cornwall ruled the motion
rescinded. His ruling was challenged on the grounds that such
a motion requiredat two-thirdS
majority or potice .of sutki; B3»K
tion at'a previous council meeting.
Second vice - president Pat
Glenn took the gavel and ruled
that a simple majority was needed to uphold the chair. His ruling was challenged and the
gavel passed to AMS secretary
Lynn McDonald. She ruled
a simple majority was necessary
to uphold Glenn. In the subsequent vote the chair, in the form
of Glenn, was upheld.
Glenn then asked for a vote
to   uphold  Cornwall.  The   vote
supported Cornwall and the motion was rescinded.
Second vice - president Pat
Glenn said he had discussed the
publicity problem with McAfee
and had arrived at a mutual satisfactory arrangement for the
publicizing of future events.
Law president Chas. McLean,
said ,The Ubssey was. a monopoly organ :and no space had
been given for the preseentatiOn
of council views on the question
during the past week.
McAfee said he had contacted president Cornwall offering
him equal editorial space for the
presentation of council views.
Cornwall said he felt councillors were aware of this Ubyssey policy and had therefore
not made a special point of
bringing it to their attention.
Cornwall's statement in last
week's Ubyssey in which he said
he was opposed to the motion
came under fire. He said he has
every right as a member of the
Alma Mater Society, to make
a statement to the press if he so
Scott and McLean accused
The Ubyssey of inaccurate,
slanted reporting during the dispute with council.
Radsoc hosts "King of the World"
while 4000 students wait 'patiently'
Homer A. Tomlinson performed in front of a select audience
Monday. ; .   .,   .
While 4,000 studentspatiehtly
waited outside Brock Hall, about
two dozen privileged beings sat
in audience with Homer.
The self-styled "King of the
World" arrived at UBC under
his own sponsorship. No one invited him, no one suggested that
he come.
And for the first time in his
68-year career he was unable to
hold his coronation. He complied with the request of three
student organization representatives to call himself a "messenger of God" instead of "King
of UBC".
In  a  brief ceremony held in
Radsoc's Studio "A", ahd witnessed only by a few reporters,
technicians and TV cameramen,
the King displayed 'his royal
robes, throne and crowns, then
murmured a prayer calling for
"peace for students and greater
guidance for the faculty."
Tomlinson first displayed his
throne — an aluminum lawn
chair covered with gold cloth
and tassels. Then came the
silver crown, delicately molded
from cardboard and plated with
the best of aluminum foil.
King Homer donned his royal
robe, a gift in 1926 from some
Chinese Christians and "worth
$600". The robe is a royal blue
with red and white flowers
worked into   the   material.   To
complete his outfit, Tomlinson
produced a tattered umbrella to
protect nimself in the event ot
a-:"Rain : &£ Righteousness" in
Studio A.
Tomlinson also displayed banners proclaiming himself "King
of the World" and calling for an
end to war and sin. However,
he refused to show reporters

to proclaim himself "King of

October 23,  1956:
Remember Hungory
It happened five years ago that the people of Hungary
broke the communist shackles from the ankles of their country. Men and women, young and old, were fighting with bare
hands against Soviet tanks and machine guns. They asked
-for the elementary rights of freedom only but their efforts
were condemned io failure. Many did on the streets of Budapest, and in other cities and villages of the country, some
managed to escape from terror with sadness in their hearts
and hopes for the future.
It was at tlhis time that two hundred students from Sopron
University, accompanied by thirty members of their faculty,
look satchel and staff in hand and left for the unknown. They
found a congenial home on the campus of UBC where these
two hundred young men continued their studies in their
chosen profession as an affiliated group of the Fatuity of
Forestry for four years.
The junior class of the Sopron .graduated last May and
left the campus, and all graduates are becoming active members of the Canadian society. However, we will always gratefully remember the generosity of the Canadian people and
the University, and will never forget their own people and
their beloved home from which subversion and barbaric
forces have expelled them.
We sfeall not forget October 23, 1956.

Vox populi
The students showed their desire to have The Ubyssey
govern its own news columns in tflieir entirety.
The student council reversed its earlier stand and voted
to rescind its motion directing The Ubyssey.
More thari 1,600 students signed a petition requesting the^
council to  take this action.  Several undergraduate societies
' indicated they felt the council should change its min,d. . [
To their credit, they did just this. ,..
The Ubyssey wishes to express its gratitude to the students
: who supported its stand and its congratulations to the student
council for helping The Ubyssey maintain its autonomy:
The many students that signed the petition in the three
hours it was available on campus indicated the strong support
The Ubyssey's stand received.

Fort1 support1
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I wish to inform you of the
fact that a motion was put forward at the Fort Camp General Meeting on October 17th,
1961, giving the Ubyssey edi-;
torial staff the full support of
the Fort Camp Student's Association in their dispute with
the Alma Mater Society.
Yours truly,
Fort Camp Student's Ass'n.
Rarely read it
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
As an individual under reasonably constant editorial attack
of late I might deign to drop to
the Ubyssey's level of innuendo
and implication; however, I
feel that it is a much more
worthwhile action to reply instead to Mr. Don Gordon's letter to the editor.
Why reply to this letter
rather than your editorial attacks? One replies to honest
efforts at question and criticism, but one need not discard
one's principles to reply to an
obvious campaign of childish
Mr. Gordon, you state you
are overcome by ? "feeling that
our so-called democratic government has suddenly become
dictatorial." I would venture
that when a skilled purveyor
of distortion spews but his invective, many minds are
swayed from rational consideration of an issue to an emotional reaction. I feel that you
have been so swayed, and I
would like to remind you that
you have been informed of
only one side of the question
and, therefore, have not the
facts to make a rational evaluation. You have made a value
judgment while being kept ignorant of some oi the facts of
the issue.
I must plead ignorance of the
"freedoms of living" to which
you    refer,    however,     I    do
ascribe  to   the   four  freedoms
which     include     freedom    of
speech,  and   thus   freedom   of
. the press. Freedom of the press
is a much misused term (refer
to the Ubyssey) and the issue
( here is not the freedom ,of the
/press, but the freedom bf   the
■Ubyssey from   the   bounds   of
good taste and responsibility to
the University community. This
responsibility    is   outlined   in
By-law  21 of the A.M.S. Constitution, to wit:
Among the principal functions   of   the   Ubyssey   and
other publications from time
to time serving as news organs of the Alma Mater Society shall be   the   advance
notification    and    sufficient
advertisement  to   the Society's    membership     of     the
events  listed  in    the   social
calendar of the Student handbook, together with the publication of such social or athletic events or other matters
as the Students' Council may
direct to the attention of the
second Vice-President."
The   motion  passed   by   the
Students'   Council   was   in   accordance with the above provision of the constitution   and
thus with   the   student body's
The Ubyssey chooses to regard this as an invasion of its
autonomy. I ask: autonomy
from whom?
I would agree with Mr. Gordon that a self-proelaimed
"demi-God" cannot be responsible to anyone, and would ask
if this is not the position the
editor of the Ubyssey seeks
when he insists on "autonomy".
To sum up, Mr. Gordon, I
don't desire to edit the Ubyssey. I rarely even desire to
read it, as factual information
is more evident by its omission
than its inclusion.
Yours respectfully,
Commerce HI.
Return brolly please
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
A word of advice to the heartless cad who, last Thursday
from the library, abducted
"Brolly", a faithful servant for
forty-one years: please, sir, be
good to her for she is fast near-
ing retirement age.
Don't be impatient if her
wormy handle comes off; don't
curse her if she flaps in the
perpetual breeze — you also,
would protest if you'd lost 3
ribs — don't discard her ruth-,
lessly because it is almost as
wet under her as it is above
her battered apex. Please, return her from whence she
came. I will collect her as soon
as I recover from my pneumonia  shock.
What? you say I lack enterprise. I should have stolen
someone else's? I'll have you
know, sir, that I (like all other
UBC students excluding yourself) obey a very strict moral
You shake mv faith in human nature, sir.
In time, sir, I hope you trip
over Brolly in the dark and
crack your fool skull. You
shall smart for this! Next time
steal a new one.
Yours truly,
Arts II.
Profs evading?
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Allow me, through the medium of The Ubyssey, to protest
against the evasion of students'
questions in classes—a practice
which is killing the interest
and free expression of students
on this campus.
Yours truly,

Brother Homer replied, "I do

Monday   afternoon.
The mob stood and waited
for the King because they
wanted to help crown him.
But "King" Homer Tomlinson showed himself to only a
select few. And those few
were in Brock Basement, barricaded  in  Radsoc's studios.
Still the mob stood and
The excitable ones threw

and at each other.
Homer arrived on campus
shortly before 2 p.m. and was
interviewed- by Ubyssey,
Radsoc, and downtown TV
The crowd started to gather
outside Brock around 3 p.m.
Homer went to Radsoc's
studios to record an interview. There , he agreed to
forego his coronation ceremony . and merely proclaim
himself "a messenger of God."
Outside, the crowd? began
chanting, "We want Homer
. . . Give us the king."
An engineer stood up and
"Homer is here as a map ol
God. Do you wish to see him?"
'.'Yes!" roared the mob.
"If he comes out will you
throw eggs at him?"
"Yes!" roared the mob.
A   bus  attempted   to  drive
through the crowd.
Eggs stained its." windshield

Homer was blissfully unaware of all these proceedings
as he discussed his philosophy
with a few ardent admirers in
the depths of Brock Hall.
Student councillor Eric
Ricker came out and told the-
crowd to disperse.
"Homer-has gone," he: said.
"There's no  use   in staying."
The crowd -cheered, and
jeered, and-threw. eggs.
Everybody was waiting for
something. Few knew exactly
for what.
A part of the mob became-
impatient and . decided that
Homer- was- hiding in the

They■soon found he wasn't
there, but not before they had
smashed the door's catch and
redecorated the office in the
latest tornado style.
Homer continued with his
seminar. Few people suspected ■ Homer's location. And
even fewer attempted to come
in to see him.
Outside the action was
speeding up.
An enraged horde, of applied science-men seized an
unfortunate  onlooker.
They smeared him with
molasses and showered him
with feathers.
The  crowd  appeared   gatis-

Homer had long since proclaimed himself a messenger
of God and had shown the

ISC  king  not  crowned!
United   undergrads protect campus
Faces of Homer
It's difficult to crown a king
at UBC. Or so the Intellectual
Stunt Committee found out Monday  noon.
ISC was going to crown Ed
Brooks, Arts 3, King of the Universe, and King of the Campus.
But they never made it.
Brooks was paraded to a chair
in front of Brock Hall by a drum
and bugle band.
And he was announced to a
group of cheering students, as
"King of the Universe."
But before he could be crowned
a mob of aggies, engineers, and
foresters appeared on the scene,
and seized him and his archbishop.
The engineers hoised a sign
that said, "NO KING AT UBC"
and took down King Brooks'

cited his own qualification for
the post. (He later crowned himself king at a city park.)
Maurice Yacowar,, king-aspirant NFCUS chairman and former editor of ;the tiiiversity's
stuent, paper/ the :\ Gauntlet,
claimed genuine divine rule.
Yacowar said there was a
consultation held at Olympia,
Greece, recently where the
problem was ironed out.
A drunken Bacchus presided
over the feast attended by some
of the more legendary gods
where it was decided that their
representative on earth should
be His Serene Highness Maurice
the First.
Maurice labelled Homer an
outsider, and told him he had
no right to usurp his position.
As Maurice entered the lounge
the assemblage broke into]
cheers of, "Hail, Hail Maurice, |
king of UAC." Homer declared
that he was, himself, king of
the world and gave a prayer for
peace, As king of UAC Maurice
endorsed it.
"No, no,"our king is Maurice,"
the students shouted when Homer tried to crown himself king
of UAC.
"The time for war has ended," Homer declared. He said
that during the Korean war he
had been flown to Korea in an
American bomber .  . .
"Warmonger," the cries rang
. . . And, standing on 'The Hill
of Mars', had declared the war
"I don't know whether I ended the war not," he said, "but
I do know the fighting stopped."
Homer gave an extensive account of his accomplishments
and exploits, and mentioned
that some middle-eastern potentates had granted him 330
square miles of desert, where
"nobody lives, between Jordan
and Syria. He calls his kingdom
When Homer mentioned that
his "desert will bloom as a
rose", a student shouted, "Yeah,
a mushroom shaped cloud."
When he insisted that he'd been
crowned  king of  England,  the
entire assemblage rose and sartg,
'God Save the Queen".
He declared he'd successfully
brought rain to the desert, by
going on a 1,000 mile trek.
At the close of the meeting a
vote was taken, just so that
everything would be fair. A
heartbroken Homer was defeated as Mauripe was overwhelrn-
ingly supported by his lo^al
Said Maurice: "Since I am
king of UAC, by the divine
right of Bacchus, my friend
cannot be king of UAC unless
he wages war against my realm.
Should he attempt to do this, I
shall give my subjects the divine orders of the goddess Venus
to M,ilo: 'Pick up your arms'."
Student reaction was divided.
It ranged fijom, "I feel sorry
for him," to, "Watch out, Manning," to "Let him be king of
lhe world if it makes him happy," to "There but for the grace
of God goes God."
Incidentally, King Maurice
later abdicated in favor of student government.

Communist club said the University administration, by not
speaking out against students
who pelted a Communist speaker with garbage Oct. 6, has condoned the students' actions.
Charles Boylan said no faculty

voiced disapproval of the action
against Bruce Yorke, secretary
of the United Fishermen's and

"Their silence indicates their

Mid-way through the ceremony, a mob of engineers
mounted the porch and seized
the "King" and his crowner.
Said a spokesman, "The supreme" powers of the university,
the aggies, engineers and foresters have combined, to protect
and watch over the campus. We
proclaim ourselves supreme."
Throughout the proceedings,
the spokesman was pelted with
eggs, lunch bags and garbage.

He said the committee is made

He said the council has expressed curiosity about WUSC.
"They are not sure of why the

Africa at UBC
Sylvia Jones, UBC's first -wo-
m£n itudent from Africa says
st&dents:; in Sierra Leone are
concerned with the slowness of
progress in their country.
"Most of my friends advocate
more rapid development," says
the pretty brown-eyed girl.
Sylvia is currently attending
the university on a Commonwealth Scholarship. She plans
to, obtain her Bachelor of Education degree.
When asked how she herself
feels   about  the   economic   and
political     progress     of    Sierra
Leone, Sylvia smiled.
'T think we must go slowly
step by step," she said.
Last April 27 the West African country received independence.
Sylvia has. lived in Freetown,
Sierra.Leone most of her life.
^'It's just like any big city. It
has department stores and
nightclubs and this jazz."
■■ She said that the interior is
the only, place where there are
small native villages.
English is the official language of Sierra Leone.
"My sisters  used to  practise
sneaking   the   native   territory
tqngue but I can say only a few
■w^rds," she,said.
When she was 18, Sylvia
wrote the Higher School Certificate Exam which is identical to that written by the students in England.
When asked how she likes
UBC, Sylvia said, "It's beautiful—the lawns and trees. And
everyone has been so helpful—
especially the directors of International House.They have helped me gain an insight into Canadian family life.
Ontario students
lose lots of liquor
Three bottles of whiskey, sixteen bottles of beer and one jug
of wine were nabbed by the police of London, Ontario, during
the football game between Western and the University of Toronto.
The police promised that
summons would be brought
against the bearers of this
liquor, much to the drinkers'
dismay. One irate student, an
unopened bottle clutched in his
hand, had this comment to
make, "This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of",
speaking of course, in regard to
the impending fine.
Several empty bottles, which
the police judged to have been
full before the game, were
thrown onto the field during the
course of the playing. This criminal offense did not escape unnoticed. A television newsreel,
filmed at the game, showed
bottles flying through the air
and lying around the stands.
USC president, Mike Hamilton, was not so decisive in his
action against the offenders. He
said that no definite action has
been taken to inflict punishment
on them, and no step has been
taken to curb further drinking
and bottle-throwing at future
games. His comment was, "I'm
not too sure that this affair is
the business of the USC."

HAMILTON (CUP)—The McMaster University Students'

The question was only decided by the president's casting

Steele said the organization's
aim was unilateral renunciation
of nuclear weapons by Canada
and the promotion of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
Use of the McMaster name
at the recent CUCND demonstrations in Ottawa was also
questioned. Steele admitted this
was a mistaKe caused by students wearing their McMaster
jackets. "We realized we were
not a McMaster organization,"
he said.
Commenting on the decision,
Steele said it was a reflection
on the maturity and democratic
principles of the student leadership, the CUCND group planned to get support for a student
assembly to vote to recommend
the Student's Council to reverse
its decision.
on culture,
KINGSTON (CUP) — Educational and cultural affairs caused
little discussion this year at the
35th Congress of the National
Federation of Canadian University Students.
Both subjects were involved
in the innumerable resolutions
at the national affairs, commission.
On a motion by University of
Montreal, the Congress agreed
that "the principle of exclusive
jurisdiction of the provincial
governments" is to be observed
in implementing programs concerning education.
The same resolution said that
unless there were specific reasons for representations to be
made to the federal government,
all NFCUS educational activities
would be directed provincially.
The Congress also urged the
federal government "to study, in
conjunction with the, provincial .
governments, the question of
taxation with a view to finding
the means for the provincial
governments to fulfill their responsibilities in the field of education."
The annual national gathering^
of student leaders also' agreed
to conduct a study of the reasons for "the under - development ot academic potential of
Canadian university students";
to investigate the possibility of
initiating an integrated national
program of acquainting high
school students with university
academic programs and the
availability of financial aid for
students; and to establish local
NFCUS education committees.
On the cultural topic, motions
were passed calling for the
establishment of a conference
"devoted to a discussion of creative writing" to be held at the
University of Toronto; directing
the national executive "to prepare a comprehensive cultural
program for Canadian university
students" and for a commission
to study the bi-cultural aspects
of the Canadian national.

and Al Eger who injured his

Ramblers scored the first

march in the second quarter.
Birds replied immediately
when Dave Lees packed the ball
23 yards for a major, making
the score 7-6 for Seattle.
But Ramblers were far from
finished. They added two more
touchdowns and a rouge in the
second half.
Stan Knight, playing his first
game since being suspended
three weeks ago, intercepted a
pass and ran it back 86 yards

the dying minutes of the game.
"We were knocking our
brains out against that huge line

Gnup cried. "Our boys could

Gnup's worries are now about

Civil  Service Commission  lists
the   employment  opportunities
OTTAWA (CUP)—Some 2,000
students are expected to apply
for a position in the Civil Service when the initial job interviewing process begins Nov. 4,
the Civil Service Commission
announced this week.
Since the majority of students
know little about the variety of
occuoations in the Civil Service,
t>.ey" invariably say they want
to be ioreign service officers,
either with the Department of
;. External -Affairs, or the Department of Trade and Commerce:
Apparently both—especially the
former — have some sort of
glamour which the other departments lack. But this is not true;
usually the recruit, if he is at all
capable and has his wits about
him, will be so busy meeting the
challenges that pop up that even
if he fails to enter the foreign
service he will b,e more than
content with his second choice.
Candidates will write examinations No. 4 in 23 cities across
the country. The test is an objective- one in whieh four basic
regions are covered: verbal ability, numerical ability, general
knowledge, and reading comprehension. The candidate must do
■well on any two of these. Basically, there is no pass or fail
mark; the sorting of the sheep
from the goats relies on practicality. Only 600 candidates can
go through the personal interviews in the months that follow,
otherwise the Commission —
which conducts the exams—
.would be interviewing all year.
The exams are tough and a
definite challenge since the Civil

fill the top administrative posts
in the government.
Those who are among the successful 600 will be interviewed
between Nov 13 and Jan. 30.
The   interviewing board   which
travels about from place to
place usually invites the candidates to a general meeting and
provides a thorough outline of
the jobs available prior to the
private interviews. Of the 600,
approximately 20 enter the service following the exams and

Recruits starting next spring
will find a salary to their liking.
Following careful study and
comparison, the government is
offering starting wages general
ly equal to those paid in industry and business. Most grads
start at a minimum of $4,560
(plus semi-annual raises). Depending on academic achievement past the undergraduate
level and previous related job
experience, the salary may go
as high as $5,880. In addition,
there is a three week vacation
with pay, cumulative sick leave,
education leave, a health
scheme, and a superannuation
plan. (After 35 years pf service
it provides ii yearly pension
equal to 70 per cent of the average salary during the highest
earning period of six years.)
In the lower salary brackets,
the government can compete
with most firms. It is-only when
the man is near the top that he
nould receive a much higher
salary in business or industry.

Geography students ask
tor express bus system
The Geography club has decided to find out where students  live.
Walter Hardwick, of the
Geography department, said
the club will locate areas of
dense student population on a
map and present it to the B.C.
Electric in hopes hat an express bus system will be implemented.
Hardwick earlier challenged
students to stop complaining
about transportation to campus and to act.
The club will begin work on
the map as soon as Bird Calls,
the student directory is published.
"Once we get this information   the   university  can  talk
to the B.C. Electric or anyone
else about the problem," Hardwick said.
Communist speaker warns
right-to-strike ban next
Restrictions On strike funds and the right to strike may be
the next legislation to follow Bill 42 which restricts labor's right
to support political parties, said William Stewart, labor writer
for the communist Pacific Tribune.
Stuart called Bill 39, the old
Labor Relations Act, reasonably
fair but denounced restrictions
placed on unions when it was
superceded by  Bill 43  in  1958.
Amcng these were the making
of unions a legal entity and
therefore liable to be sued for
damage incurred during strikes.
On Bill 42 which restricted
the use of union dues for political parties and support of candidates by labor he said, "What
a union does with its money is
of no concern to government
except where it means that the
government may be knocked
out of office."
Mr. Stewart, quoting from a
London paper, "that there has
been less labor unrest in B.C. in
the last year according to Premier Bennett," said that this is
because the right to strike has
been restricted.
He claimed "that the anti-
Labor legislation was not a -
cidental but the wish of large
political trusts and companies
whose ideas run contrary to the
workers welfare."
He attacked the daily press
for damning socialism and
slandering communist countries.
"Fifteen years ago large capitalist companies also attacked
economic socialism but : they
have ceased in recent years," he
Switching to what he called
secret police tactics of the
RCMP, Mr. Stewart said, "they
are riddled through the labor
movement and nuclear peace
