 Homecoming
weekend
THE UBYSSEY
SO
what?
Vol.   XLIV.
VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27,  1961
No.  18
King' mob conduct
to be investigated
Student police force
suggested for control
Student discipline committee is investigating the possibility of creating a student
police force for crowd control
at football games, dances and
assemblies.
• ... "In. view of such incidents
as the "King of the World"
and those at various football
games and dances on campus,
I think an investigation into
the advisability of establishing a student police force is
very worthwhile," said student vice-president Eric Ricker, chairman of the discipline
committee. "Queen's university has a very effective student police force."   -

ISSUE, CLOUDED?  No  so,   says  Thunderbird   football  coach
Frank Gnup (behind cigar). Gnup's team meets Alberta Golden Bears Saturday at Stadium in game that will decide Western    Intercollegiate   championship.   "It   will    be   close,"   said
Gnup,   "But   no   cigar   for   them"
Football 'Birds can
clinch championship
By BERT MacKINNON
UBC Thunderbirds, held together by tape and prayers, host
the University of Alberta Golden
Bears in the annual Homecoming football game Saturday.
The winner clinches the Western Intercollegiate championship
and gains the right to meet the
eastern winners for the Canadian title.
Game time is 1:30 at the Stadium.
TEAM HEALTHIER
Bird coach Frank Gnup says
the team has recovered considerably from the physical battering
they received from the Seattle
Ramblers last weekend.
"But   I can  never tell  when
they're ready mentally," he said
between puffs on his ever-pres-
* ent cigar."
The Golden Bears are expected to give the Birds a battle for
every yard they make. The
Bears have gained the reputation
as a team that actually enjoys
'Havenots' troubles
discussion subject
"The Challenge of the Underdeveloped Nations" is the theme
of a panel discussion to be held
in Brock Lounge at noon today.
Held in conjunction with
homecoming weekend, the discussion will feature:
Dr. Cyril Belshaw, head of the
campus U.N. training centre,
v speaking on the challenge to the
U.N.; Dr.',J. S. Conway of the
department of History, on "the
challenge to the student", and
Dean Geoffrey Andrew, deputy
to the president, on "The challenge to Canada and the way in
which she can help."
tackling and have knocked their
way into a first-place tie with
UBC.
The teams tied 14-14 in Edmonton three weeks ago.
Returning to the Bird lineup
after a long layoff due to a knee
injury is starry end Tom Andrews. Gnup hopes Andrews is
mended sufficiently to last the
whole game.
WICKLAND DRESSES
Other players who will dress
for the game are Ray Wickland,
Fred Sturrock and Roy Shatzko,
all injured in last week's game.
Gnup will be starting Barry
Carkner at quarterback. Carkner has been a major factor in
the Birds' success this year and
has come up with the big play
when the Birds were in a hole.
Stan Knight will also be dressed for the game. He will be used
primarily on defense, but will
^e ready to go in at quarterback
if needed.
Birds are also counting heavily on halfback Jack Schriber,
who has shown good speed this
season, and hard running fullback Roy Bianco to add potency
to their offense.
SHOULD WIN
On defense, Birds are counting on perennial standout Bruce
McCallum, who h a s c o m e up
with a key play in every Bird
outing so far. Gnup said McCallum will probably get to see
some action on offence this game
as well.
"We've got no excuses physically if the tape holds," Gnup
said. "If the team wants to win,
the game is ours. It would help
the team morally. It should be
one hell of a game!"
Council passes 1961
Alma Mater budget
Student Council Monday has
passed unanimously the pro-
oosed budget of the Alma Mater
Society, drawn up by treasurer
Malcolm Scott.
The budget had earlier bee^n
unanimously approved by the
budget discussion group, made
up of representatives bf interest
groups.
First vice-president Eric
Ricker said: "Although I do not
agree with some of the allocations that were made, I am
certainly willing to approve the
budget as a whole in view of the
fact that any areas possibly not
given fairest consideration have
the recourse of going to the
finance committee."
"The treasurer has done an
excellent job of preparing the
budget. It is probably the most
thoughtful budget that has been
presented in the last few years,"
Ricker said.
Engineering president Terry
Guest said he found it strange
that 16 undergrad society presidents on a council of 23 had
nothing to say about their allowance of $6,000 out of a budget of
a quarter of a million dollars.
line committee
receiving complaints
The student discipline committee will investigate conduct
of students during a ruckus at "King" crowning ceremonies.
Monday.
4,000  fans   jam
gym for pep meet
They were hanging from the
rafters Thursday at the annual
homecoming pep meet in War
Memorial Gym.
A crowd estimated at 4,000
jammed all standing room, stairs
and spilled out onto the gym
floor to see the 'Birds football
team, cheerleaders and Aussie
Rolf Harris and his wobbleboard.
Medicine students added a
"siren" to the thirteen parading
for Homecoming Queen when
their queen appeared on the red
carpet to the stage.
Harris presented his famous
"Into the Bush" routine, along
with "Tie me Kangaroo Down,
sport" and a host of new risque
songs.
Student Vice-president Eric
Ricker said the committee will
receive written complaints from
students wishing to lay charges
against other students or organizations at a committee meeting
at noon today in the BrOck stage
room.
He said that unless students
responsible for damage to Brock
Hall during the ceremony are
found,: jrjoney to coyer the dam-
sages- iwifl came out? of general
AJma Mater Society funds.
3000 GATHER
About three thousand students
gathered in front of the hall at
noon Monday for a mock crowning by the Intellectual Stunt
Committee. Later in the afternoon, about 4,000 milled around
Brock for about two hours waiting for "King of the World"
Homer Tomlinson to crown himself.
During the demonstrations the
front of the Brock was pelted
with fruit. Windows, doors
and furniture were damaged.
Tomlinson's crowning was called off by student officials who
feared for the safety of the
aging self-acclaimed "King ot
the World."
Co-ordinator of activities,
Doug Stewart said, "I was extremely displeased with the attitudes and actions of the students,
particularly three of the undergraduate societies."
DAMAGE ESTIMATED
Council treasurer Malcolm
Scott said structural damage has
been estimated at $65.
Engineering  undergrad president Terry Guest told Ubyssey, |
"It was a deplorable show of bad I
manners and reflects on our lack
of adequate student  control  of
crowd situations.
"All the 'organized' mayhem
was over by 1:30," he added.
"After that it was strictly mob
action with no plan or plot by
the Engineers, Aggies, or Foresters." ;.
The ruckus that ensued wa$
due to the fact that 4,000 students had come to see Tomlinson and were provoked when he
didn't appear," Guest said. "1
feel that no harm would have
come to him had he been allowed to come out and speak to the
students."
Second vice-president, Pat
Glenn said that nothing council
could have done would have
stopped the crowd.
"Bringing Tomlinson out
would have created more
trouble. This way at least he
wasn't hurt," Glenn said.
First year
standards
increased
Tougher standards for first-
year admission have been approved by. the University Senate, President Norman MacKenzie has announced.
The new regulations, which
will apply for the first time in
1962, were recommended by a
Senate Committee which is reviewing the University's academic policies and programs.
The purpose of the regulations,
Dr. MacKenzie said, is to try to
ensure that students who come
to the university are academic*
ally qualified.
At the present time, too many
of those who enter with minimum requirements are unable
to handle University work and
fail, he said.
The regulations now state:
• Students entering UBC
from grade 12 must have full
standing by recommendation or
by departmental examinations in
June. Candidates who have to
write supplementary examinations in August will no longer
be admitted to the University
the following September.
• Students taking a full senior
matriculation year in the high
schools will be given no credit
by the University unless they
pass in at least three of the five
subjects required in the Department of Education exams conducted in June.
• Students who do not pass -in
at least three subjects will not
be admitted to the University
until they complete their senior
matriculation.
• Students from outside B.C.
will be admitted only if they
have obtained senior matriculation and if they, meet the entrance requiremerits*£^the university- of ihefr own ^country or
-province." :,'.  " \V; "' £^
♦ And that if senior: matriculation- Is riot offer ed -ijjfhere the
student is resident, consideration will be given to admitting
him with junior matriculation
or other appropriate qualifications.
Studies carried out at the University show that grade 12 students • write supplemental ■ and
pass, approximately 85 per cent
fail their freshman year completely and less than 2 per cent
pass all their examinations.
Registrar John Parnell said
the numbers affected would not
be great. Pqjge  2

THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, October 27, 1961
Letters to the Editor
To hell with facts
Once again The Sun—that bastion of the "downtown"
press—has deemed it advisable to "mention" UBC on one ol
its 50-odd pages of newsprint.
This time on the editorial page of October 25. At least the
"mention" does not pretend to be news. We can therefore take
it for what it is worth. Someone's uninformed opinion.
The Sun, dedicated to "progress," democracy and freedom"
charges that students had their fun Tuesday (sic) pelting a
68-year-old mari with garbage and holding him seige in a locked
room for two hours."
This venerable organ of public service is in error on two
jmajn points. Bishop Tomlinson was neither pelted with garbage
;nor held in seige..
! He was asked not to appear before the gathered crowd by
jstudent councillors, who periodically suffer from flushes of
i'publicrelationitis", because they felt that, "T.V. cameras will
ibe here and it might give UBC a black eye."
The good bishop agreed to abide by the councillors' deci-
jsion and went, willingly, to the studios of UBC Radio. His beliefs were aired via the station's campus network.
This "fun" transpired Monday, not Tuesday, as reported in
'The Sun. We realized that an editorial writer is allowed certain
"editorial license" but we feel that changing the time of an
event does not fall within the scope of this privilege.
The Sun is also in error in that it accuses UBC students of
wanting to pelt Tomlinson because he claimed sovereignty
over the world, and was campaigning in favor of peace and the
abolition of crime.
There was a certain element within that crowd that would
have pelted eggs and tomatoes at anyone merely because it
likes to throw things. Every crowd has such a segment in its
makeup. But The Sun implies everyone gathered, came only
to beleaguer the "harmless old fellow."
. Tltfe Syn implies this "harmless old fellow" was completely
defenceless. A- mistake also made by our co-ordinator of activities and first vice-president.
They forget "the harmless old fellow" has appeared on all
of the larger Canadian campuses and managed to arrive in
Vancouver with all his physical faculties intact. Every one of
the other campuses were at least as active as ours.
Bishop Tomlinson could probably have mounted his aluminum throne, withstood the initial barrage, and commanded the
attention of the entire crowd. He probably would have lived
through it too! Much to the unhappiness of The Sun, no doubt.
What copy!
We would like to go back to the inscription at the top left
corner of The Sun's editorial page: "The Sun ... is devoted
to progress, democracy and freedom." Nothing there about
accuracy, implied or otherwise.
Seige!
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On Monday last, 150 cooly
courageous red- blue- and
green-shirted monsters found
themselves protected merely
by a single flimsy door from
a hoard of half a dozen fanatic
monarchists. Undaunted, the
rainbow-hued mass laid violent
hands upon the de facto king,
brutally bearing him off in triumph through the immobile
mob.
It must be admitted that we
(the king) felt ourselves in far
safer hands in the midst of a
swaying sea of sweaters than
behind a locked, body-blocked
door.
Also, the waters of appropriately-placed pools are much
warmer now than they were
last February. If this is to be
an annual excursion - cum - im
mersion, may it be said that the
hydrodynamics lesson is more
fully appreciated during the
"dry" season.
So, subjects: hear ye! Hark
to the official proclamation of
abdication.
Whereas: the elite of UBC
appears not to desire desperately a benevolent despot (a
conclusion contemplated upon
during, villainous vassals vilification of this prestigious personage); and whereas: the
aforementioned Engineers
have promised to reimburse
the regal coffers for dry-cleaning bills in the vicinity of
$2.52; -and whereas: the royal
colors decidedly clash with the
gentle hue of cackleberries:
Therefore: henceforth Michael,
former King oi the Universe,
voluntarily joins Farouk and
others ignobly deposed in lonely exile on the Riviera.
Yours truly,
MIKE COLEMAN

Responsible?
Editor,
The Ubyssey, ,
Dear Sir:
I have never before witnessed such an appalling demonstration as I witnessed in front
of the Brock at 3:30 on Monday. Here several hundred
students assembled armed with
eggs, apples and an assortment
of other missiles to bombard a
68-year-old man for expressing
his beliefs. Fortunately- for
himself and for ourselves he
never appeared. However, the
eggs were still thrown. Are we
a responsible student body?
Are we responsible if we
stand back and watch this sort
of action without taking any
counteraction? If we do nothing to stop or control these ac-
tions we are condoning injustice.
If this man had made an appearance and been struck dead
with one of these flying missiles would this change the
actions of these students when
other speakers, whose ideas
and views differ from the ordinary, visit our campus?
Behavior is a mirror in
which everyone shows his image. Do we the students of
UBC want these actions to be
our image?
This man should have been
afforded the courtesy of free
speech if for no other reason
than he is a fellow human being:. Every man belong to the
human race and owes a duty to
mankind. Men cannot, by combining themselves into narrower or larger societies, sever
the sacred bond which joins
them to their kind.
It has been said that there is
nothing so good as a university
education, nor worse than a
university without its education. And isn't education the
constraining and directing of
youth toward that right reason,
which the law affirms and
which our elders have agreed
to be truly right.
Reason may not always be
relied upon as sufficient to direct us what to do, but it is
generally to he relied upon and
obeyed where it tells us what
we are not to do.
Therefore, in future, let us
the student body, when we see
wrong being done, do something about it, for those who
have no taste for order are
often wrong in their judgment,
and seldom considerate or conscious in their actions. Law and
order are nothing unless close
behind them stands a warm,
public opinion and this opinion
must be acted upon, for where
free speech is stopped miasma
is bred, and death comes fast.
Yours truly,
ED JACKSON,
Arts .4.
Apathetic armpits?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Never has such a pathetic
display of apathy been known
in the unhallowed precincts of
the UBC campus until those
loud - mouthed, noisy, mule-
cavities—the Engineers — once
again took the campus by
storm at noon on Monday. Mud
rioting is all. in the course of
fun, but the Engineers seem to
be the only ones who realize
this. (Take note! I strongly
voice my disapproval of such
punk-like vandalism as was
perpetrated later in the day.)
I refer only to the deposition
of the King of the Universe—
(before he had been crowned.)
The n o n - Engineers, and
hence the allied forces, must
have out-numbered the Redshirts by four-to-one and yet,
when the usual scuffle took
place to throw the king and
his chancellor into the pond,
only a handful opposed the
Reds. Rather was the attitude
taken that this was unpaid entertainment. Rosy-cheeked and
bespeckled the Artsmen jeered
on. Why didn't it occur to them
that they too could perform?
It was Shakespeare who said,
"All the world's a stage and all
the men and women merely
players". Don't Artsmen read
Shakespeare?
Many a time I heard, "Get
the Engineers!" — but who
moved? One is reminded of the
old maxim, "if.you can't say
anything nice, don't say anything at all". Changed, this
might read: "If you can't do
something about it yourself,
don't ask others to do it for
you."
Mr. Grande had his red-
devils well under control. They
responded with a will. Grande
"ungrandified" at the bottom
of a pool (preferably the deepest) would ease the stricken
conscience of Miss Nemesis.
Yet who is to do it?
Engineers are not the kids
on campus — they have far
heavier  courses than   most  of
us. They ease the entanglement
of their computer-like minds
by good clean (and often
cleansing) fun. Why don't we
join in? A mild rumble is what
we need, to show them we are
not the armpits they believe us
to be.
Enough   said.  It  grieves  me
to have to laud the opposition.
Yours truly,
CHRIS   HARBER,
Arts 4.
Standard rising?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The readers of a newspaper
have a right to assume that
quotation marks embrace the
precise words of the speaker-
cited. On page one in your
issue of October 11 you quote
me directly five times. In no
case do you quote accurately.
In three other paragraphs you
impute to me statements that I
did not make. On page five you
credit me with the suggestion
that a "pub" might be included
in the new Students' Union.
This was not my suggestion: I
do not know of a church college in Ontario that serves
beer; I do not approve of a
"pub" on this campus for students, since it Would merely
involve difficulties with the
law; the suggestion was made
not by me but by a colleague.
I put it to you, Mr. Editor,
that this represents journalism
at its worst. I remind you that
I offered you access to the
address that I made at Elphinstone, with the reservation that
you should not quote two specific sentences; you rejected the
offer, on the ground that your
memory would serve you. I
offered to read your story in
order to ensure accurate quotation; you did not avail yourself
of this offer, perhaps because
you were under the illusion
that I was suggesting a form
of censorship.
There have been examples of
good reporting in the Ubyssey
this year. The issue in question,
however, has done much to
weaken my own hope that the
standard of journalism on the
campus will rise.
Yours truly,
MALCOLM F. McGREGOR
You're right. We're wrong.—
Editor.
Professionalism
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The Homecoming Pep Meet
should not be dominated by
professional entertainment. The
Pep Meet is a university function and should promote student participation during
Homecoming Week. Student
participation should be encouraged rather than restricted
in the programming of the
event. Promotion of the Queen
Candidates should be made the
most important part of the
occasion. This can only happen
if originality and faculty participation are permitted during
the presentation of the Queen
Candidates.
If student participation was
the underlying theme of the •
Pep Meet, would we not then
have a Homecoming representing student vitality and effort
rather than apathetic spectator-
ship?
Yours  truly,
GRAEME HOWARD Friday,   October  27,   1961

WORDS
By MIKE GRENBY
"Mike, have you got your column written yet?" called out
the senior editor at 1:00 p.m.
yesterday.
"Sure thing, it's all set to
go," I answered cheerfully.
"That's too bad," I heard her
shout through a shower of copy
paper. "We've got 237 inches of
ads so you'll have to cut your
stuff down to about seven
inches."
Great.
* * *
I suppose you couldn't care
less but I'm going to tell you
that there are seven men for
every three women on this
campus.
Info office tells me the ratio
is 9,156 to 3,907, or two and
one-third shemales for every
male.
So why should this fact be
interesting? Why should anyone bother to remember the
seven-to-three ratio?
But they do remember.
The girls discuss the fact
contentedly, perhaps even a
little smugly, while the fellows
adopt a negatively - optimistic
"well, it could be worse" attitude.
Ah, the marvel of sex!

Canadamayjgetmuclear
weapons  after Green
By   RICHARD   SIMEON
External Affairs Minister Howard Green will be put out
to pasture in the Senate after the next general election to quiet
his objections to nuclear weapons for Canada, former Liberal
member of parliament E. Philpott said in a noon hour lecture.
Philpott  said   prime  minister
Diefenbaker and his government
have decided that Canada will
have nuclear weapons for its
Bomarc missiles, but will not
make the decision known until
after the next general election.
Canada should avoid nuclear
weapons like the plague Philpott
told students. The political disadvantages far outweigh the
slight military advantages, he
said.
He called the Conservatives
"colonialists", and criticized,
them for toeing the American
line.
Canada's foreign policy must
be directed through the UN,'
said Philpott.
Philpott said he is in favor of
Canada becoming a member of
the Organization of American
States. He also called for >no-
sellout in Berlin and settlement
of the dispute by negotiation.
Philpott was sponsored by the
campus Liberal club.

THE
KIIMEO
By PETER MORRIS
^   The Critical Question    *
Several readers have commented on my critical approach to
the cinema, so this week's column will be devoted to offering a
few thoughts on film criticism.
I am beinfe far from controversial in remarking that the present state of film criticism is appalling: no other field of opinion
is so efficiently homogenised nor so incompetent. The -typical
film review consists of a regurgitation of the plot synopsis,; a few
desultory comments on the photography and acting and an analysis
of the 'social' importance of the film. Any director whose film
contains an obviously enlightened 'message' can expect serious
consideration and even praise — even if he is talentless as Stanley
Kramer. Give the average critic one simple thought like 'war is
hell' to chew on and he will accept any amount of formlessness
in the cinematic structure.
STYLE IN SCRIPT
Serious examination of this type of criticism readily leads
to the conclusion that, unless the writers are completely incompetent, they must be convinced that a film's style is 'all in the
script', which is an attitude of complete contempt for the resources
of the cinema, Perhaps this is the reason for so much useless film
critkasrij,"since the film column of a newspaper is usually considered as a las£ resting place for the superannuated sports-writer,
a relaxation for literary critics or an extra source of income for
the 'I can criticise anything' boys.: 'These people may be very good
judges of the literary content of the script, but about the film
itself they have nothing to< say.
ARTIST'S EXPRESSION
Judging a film depends on two questions: "What idea or emotion was the artist trying to express and''how well has he succeeded?'" and "What means did he use to express these ideas?".
The answers.to these questions necessarily intertwine for it is not
possible to discuss an artist's ideas without understanding his
means bf expression. Style, form and technique are the means by
which an artist expresses his vision, and the form and style of a
film should embody the content. The film critic must be able to
understand film style — the language of the cinema — before he
can properly fulfill his function; he must be able to understand
the artists's expressions before he can completely discuss the
artist's ideas. :' "''*'
'Film style' includes" all those elements with which the
director is concerned, and does not reside entirely in the quality
of the visuals. The cinema has more variable elements than any
other art form: editing, lighting, sound, composition, camera movements, colour, dialogue* theme, acting and music can all play a
greater or lesser part in the overall form, and the critic (if he
deserves the name) must be able to discuss the importance and
interplay of all the elements. s
EXAMPLES OF STYLE
An example of film styling being directly an expression of
content is Michelangelo Antonioni's L'AVVENTURA where relationships between the characters are demonstrated through the
structure of the images; in fact it is impossible to understand
what Antonioni is saying without realising how he is saying it.
Alain Resnais' HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR is another contemporary example: the complex and subtle rhythms inherent in the
structure mould the film's content, and the meaning of HIROSHIMA cannot be properly discussed without discussing the style.
A new French film BREATHLESS (which is coming to the Varsity
shortly) expresses.the motives and emotions of the characters in a
trivial thriller plot through a deliberate construction and style
consisting of editing devices and elaborate camera movements.
LOOK FOR MEANING
As far as I am concerned the critic can make only one approach to a film: to look for the meaning not only in the plot but
also in the structure of the images, in their light or colour and in
the sound track. Style should be discussed not as an embellishment
but as the method by and through which meaning is expressed.
That most film critics do not appreciate this approach is a situation
that any intelligent film viewer should deplore.

ASHES AND DIAMONDS, the Polish prize-winning film made in 1958, is to be presented by

breaks the group down
LAST    WINTER.    THE    MONTGOMERY
Brothers were a GROUP, playing together for
mutual advantage and inspiration. The strength
of the brothers depended upon ensemble
choruses that were a constant surprise to 'hear.
Subtle, quick, and witty shifts in tempo, clashes
of individual ryhthmic and melodic conceptions,
and a rhythmic sense of dynamics gave a feeling of four diversely talented musicians playing
together in a coherent unit; each musician contributing his musical identity to the group as a
whole, and each musician responding to the
individuality of the others. Even the drummer
worked well last winter.
BUT THIS THURSDAY NIGHT, THE
brothers began with three strikes against them:
an unresponsive audience, a poor drummer,
and the glib, commercial atmosphere of the
Inquistion (50c for a pot of tea, only expensive
espresso after midnight). Only on tunes like
"Bud's Tune" and "Ralph's Noodles", when the
brothers managed to ignore drummer Henry
Moore's repetitive, heavy-handed plodding did
the group ever attain its past swing and surprise
with Wes' melodically shifting guitar glancing
off the walking bass of Monk and the surprisingly assured piano of Buddy. (Buddy on the
whole was little help to either Monk or Wes.)
Each musician had to fend for himself on tunes
like "Four on Six" when music fell away to a
shuffling mash of undifferentiated sound, ar
identities were swallowed/ up whole in tl
rush.

ON SATURDAY NIGHT AT

she sang stylistically, intelligently, as shown by her avoidance of exaggerating the sta-
catto style of the automaton's
principal aria. Seemingly more
at home in the broader melodies of Giulietta and Antonia,
her expressive voice floated
easily through the final acts.
Throughout the opera, Miss
Salemka's singing was complemented by a simple, straightforward acting style.
THE UNDOUBTED STAR
among; stars of Saturday's performance, however," was Richard Cross, portraying the four
, treacherous villains that thwart
. Hoffman's loves. From the jealous Councillor Lindorf, to the
mad, erratic Coppelius, the
sinister magician, Dapperlutto,
and the evil physician, Dr. Muscle* Cross demonstrated an;
ability to delineate character
which was quite outstanding.
Add to this his deep,' resonant
voice, skilfully inflected to ra-'
diate the particular moods'of
each role, and the result is that
exceptional being, a genuine
singing actor.
BETTY PHILLIPS TURN-
ed in one of her most satisfactory performances as H o f f -
man's ever sensible friend and
conscience, Nicklausse. Karl
Norman too showed his top
form in three character roles.
Some may feel, as this writer
does, that the extended comic
relief provided by the deaf
servant Frantz in the last act
distracts too much from the
mood and plot, but any blame
rests with the opera, not Norman who made the most of the
part as it was written.
THE MINOR ROLES WERE
also well taken but the real
remaining stars were the
chorus and orchestra under the
, direction of Olio-Werner Meul-
ler. The well-balanced, full-
sounding chorus sang remarkably well as a group. Conductor Meuller also elicited splendidly disciplined playing from
his instrumentalists, especially
from the strings, which verged
on opulence during the orchestral Barcarolle. If the introduction to Act I could have sparkled more, the pacing generally and the balance between
singers and orchestra w e » e;
commendable. Much of the success of the whole production,
in fact, was due to the conductor's skill and interpretative
insight.
IRVING GUTTMAN'S DIR-
ection demonstrated his usual
high level of competence, especially in the difficult task of
blocking an operatic chorus imaginatively, as he did in the
tavern scene. The effectiveness
of this scene was certainly enhanced by Gail McCance's
evocative set and subdued lighting. Similarly effective was the
scene before Giulietta's palace,
complete with gondola. Spalan-
zani's drawing room was also
striking in its simplicity but
some of the costumes, elsewhere very good, were overly
colorful and along with excessively individual movements
by chorus members, distracted
audience attention from Olympia.
THE MOST IMPRESSIVE
feature of Vancouver Opera
Associ a t i o n presentations is
probably their excellence as
fully co-ordinated productions.
Once again this company has
shown us that opera of a professional calibre is not only
possible in Vancouver, but is
being fully realized.

Freedom for press
affirmative wins
By ERIC WILSON
Only 10 students turned out Wednesday to hear student
debators Ridhard Gordon and Felix Raymond successfully defend  the  motion,   'Resolved  that  The Ubyssey  should  have
absolute freedom of the press."
Negative speakers in the de
bate, first of a weekly series,
were Fred Affleck and Mike
Coleman. The meeting was chaired by David Graham of the Debating Club.
GOVERNMENT CHECK
Gordon outlined three benefits of a "free" Ubyssey. He
pointed but that the paper provides an implement in the check
system oh the power of government, is a means of contact and
communication between students, and is a voice of the students in campus and world affairs:
MUeck--pointed' out that the
key -word of the debate was "absolute".
"Editorial autonomy can be
disastrous," he said, and recalled
how inaccuracies in the Paris
press had at times inflamed
public opinion to the point of
revolution.
BACK FOUR CENTURIES?
Affirmative speaker Raymond
defined the press as the fourth
arm .of government, and maintained that if it is to act as such
at UBC it must be allowed absolute freedom.
Raymond stressed that, if the
press is controlled by government, society is  reverting to a
16th century frame of mind
where the press is authoritarian
and simply passes knowledge
down to people.
Coleman pointed out that, as
a monopoly on campus, The
Ubyssey is subsidized by the
Alma Mater Society, it cannot
be allowed to print slanderous
material because the AMS, and
through it the students, would
be responsible for any legal action brought against the paper.
The motion was carried by a
vote Of four to three.

An acute shortage of earrells
in the University Library has
resulted in only graduate students and faculty members being allocated earrells, Dr. Samuel
Rothstein, acting head librarian,
told Student Council.
"It is a case of a growing demand and a fixed supply," he
raid. "We had three times as
many applications as earrells be
fore we stopped accepting applications this year."
Dr. Rothstein said he expected
that soon only grads and faculty
would even have admission to
the stacks.
He said he did not feel expansion of the library would come
in the near future.
"The library has a low priority on the list of necessary de-1

Once upon a time, the Citizens
:   Ivory  Tower,   B.C.,   decided j
was about time they had a
rofessional Football Team for
eir Fair City.
So they all got together and
lipped in $25 apiece, for which
ey received a Share in the
?am. They hired a Genera)
a^ager by the name of Lipp
[erman Lipp), and appointed
25-man Board of Directors to
'ersee the Operation.
In the first three years of
jeration, the team lost only one
ime, and had just four toueh-
>wns and one safety touch
ored against them.
Attendance dropped drasti-
lly. The Fans were bored to

r their team. So they fired the
5ach.
They replaced him with an-
her man, who had a Great
jal of Experience, and paid
m $30,000 a year. But he, too,
m too many football games.
' they fired him.
They hired another man, who
is a mere Assistant Coach with
; Green Gophers, and a Rough
iugh Guy. But he, too, wor
11 games.
An anonymous reporter from
e of the Downtown Papers,
io thought his was the Cat'f
sow, blasted the team, and
manded the Coach's resigna-
>n. "He uses far too much
lagination," he said.
So they fired the Coach. But
;y still won, only not by such
* margins. Then, one parti-
tarly irate fan named Butcher
m Saloon started agitating for
general Meeting of the Share-
lders. He got up a petition
rnanding that more Directors
appointed. "We can't hope to
!e games with the efficiency
^'re how getting with only 25
rectors," he said. "And, fur
jrmojje, Lipp doesn't interfere
th the'Coach enough. He gets
>ng with the players too well."
So the club held the meeting,
pp resigned. So did all the
rectors. And the Coach, a chap
the name of Spine, ran the
im for the rest  of the year.
e Elephants lost all their
rnes, but no fans came to the
mes because they had all bene so fed up with the team
it^they had turned to profes-
nal Croquet, which was much
ire satsifactory sport: because
didn't   require   a   Coach,   or
neral Manager, or Directors,
ks a matter of fact, all they
sded- were croquet wickets,
iich they made quite easily
t of the rims ol the iron-clad
n-Year   Contracts   which   the
neral Manager used to issue.

Despite the many famous
names which grace the roster of
the grad basketball team, the
younger (and better-conditioned)
Thunderbirds of Pomfret are
favored to repeat last year's, win.
Probably a couple of steps
slower, perhaps a little bit smarter, and certainly a few pounds
heavier, the grads will drag
their weary bodies on to the
floor of War Memorial Gymnasium at 8 tonight.
MORE LUNG-POWER
In an effort to overcome the
Birds advantage of better lung-
power and more practice time,
Grad coach Harry Franklin will
put some of the best talent ever
to come out of UBC's basketball
system on the floor.
Reid Mitchell and Ed Wild,
ex-members of Canada's Olympic squad, will be playing shoulder-to-shoulder with such recent
grads as Ken Winslade and Ed
Pedersen.
Other famous names to watch
out for are Long John Forsythe,
Barry Drummond, and Ralph

HOW
LONG
DO
YOU
HAVE
TO
THINK
rr
OVER
?
Over twenty-five years ago a doctor invented Tampax—and that's
a long time. Since then millions
of women have used billions of
Tampax. Many of these women
were in their teens when they began
to use Tampax. And if you were to
ask any of them today why they.
prefer Tampax internal sanitary
protection they'd give you the very
same good reasons that prompted
their decision in the first place.
The Tampax way is so much
cleaner and nicer. Tampax is so
convenient—you can carry ,
it in your purse. Tampax
prevents odor from forming. Tampax is so easy to I
dispose of. There are no belts or
pins or pads to bother with.
You probably have some personal questions about Tampax.
Why not ask them of a friend who
is a user? Then stop thinking it over
and try Tampax. It's so much more
natural and normal.
Available hi a. choice of 3 ab-
sorbencies: Regular, Super, Junior
—wherever such products are sold.
