UNNECESSARY COMMUTING
"A tide of students must not

Education Minister L e all i e
Peterson said Thursday that
Hobbs charges had done a gTeat
disservice to the university and
province.
Peterson told the Ubyssey he
expects an amendment made to
the Central Housing and Mortgage- Act, which Will allow the
university to borrow money at
favorable interes rates, will provide any residences the university wishes to construct.
"Certainly, there are huts on
the campus that we would like
the -universitar to -be rid of,"
Peterson said. "But to advertise
that the. university is a Shaek-
town is- in poor, taste."
'The big item we have been
pressing for is. the amendment

Mrs. Brown, minister without
portfolio, called for action by the
authorities at the university to
improve discipline of student
morality, referring to the recent
debate on chastity, and a "shocks
ing and immoral questionnaire
which was sent to the girl students on the campus."
Mrs.'Brown told The Ubyssey
a photostatic copy of the questionnaire was sent to the Legislature and given to her by another member of the cabinet.
She said there was a notation
at the bottom of the copy stating that it had been sent to
every woman on campus.
(This notation is not on the
questionnaire unearthed by The
Ubyssey.
The questionnaire, printed on
blue paper, is entitled "general

Mrs. firbwa said nt the Legislature she wished to raise a
strong protest against the debate,
but:that she felt the questionnaire was even worse.
The debate had received newspaper publicity but toIM^ know
"It would not serve any purpose to give out the questionnaire. My purpose was to bring
to J;he forefront the fact that
some of our principles are being
cast aside."
Mrs. Brown positively ideti-
fied the questionnaire located by
The Ubyssey as being identical
to the one in her possession.
She charged that the debate
led to the distribution of the
questionnaire, even if: the spfe-
soring organization had nothing
to do with it-  '

HOSPITAL NEEDED
Hobbs in his speech also urged
development of a university hospital, saying that. UBC is surrounded by a province and state
that have university* hospitals,
but UBC does not.
"The faculty of medicine at
UBC iis ready to move but cannot go forward because they
have no hospital," he said.

Roy resigns
UMSU
By JOAN NEWMAN
WINNIPEG (CUP) — The
new University of Manitoba
student Union president came,
saw, and left. He had been in
office for 63 seconds.
This was just one in a sequence of unusual events involved in the election of the
UMSU president for 1961-62.
Nominations were open
from January 23 to February
3. Until the last night before
the deadline, the only candidate was FDU» a cartoon character published regularly in
the Manitoban. His papers
and fee had been filed, and it
was rumored that he would
become president by acclamation.
One of his campaign prom-
nominations  reflect  apathy
FDU
isesv was to do away with the
university administration. But
hopes were dashed when, on
the e\ e -of the deadline, two
applications were received
irom Peter Herrndorf, Mani'
toban editor, and Nick Rost
van Tonnigen,
However, Herrndorf's application was submitted with the
understanding that it might
be withdrawn.
Later, Herrndorf dropped
out of the race, leaving Rest
van Tonnigen as the sole contender.
At an UMSU council meeting, the council acclaimed
Rost van Tonnigen as president. One minute later, student president Roy Mackenzie read a letter of-resignation
foronsj Rest van Tonnigen. Sraift
• letter stated that he was being

cause of the pressure «E his
studies.
Evidently he had been told
by the Dean of Political Science that he could not continue in his studies towards
his Masters degree, if he took
on the post.
Nominations were reopened
the next day, to close midnight
February   11. If  no nominations had been received by
tins time, the president would
have the power to dissolve
UMSU council.
Two nominations were filed:

Strait is the gate
Many would-be university students apply for admission to
jBeveral universities in case they fail to get their first choice; and
the work of $ie selectors is greatly increased by having to consider a mass of applicants, many of whom will eventually withdraw, having got to elsewhere. A report presented to tbe Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals, and just published,
pffess & choice of ways to escape from this difficulty. This report,
prepared by an ad hoc committee on selection procedure, will be
-considered next inonth at a conference of universities and schools.
The essential: jroint in any practicable scheme is that the
universities shall learn much earlier than they now do what is
the genuine total of applicants from whom they niust choose
their entrants—no one suggests that the actual choice should
pass from them to a central body. AH three schemes put forward
in the report eall for a central clearing house. In one, labelled Z,
this'wili be a little «aere than a post office, and would be of little
-serviee, -4n-setaeaaes X and-.,-Y. the applications would come in'
through the clearing bouse. In scheme X an application would go,
atifisrst only to the two or three universities ranked highest in
preference; to others only if rejected by them. In scheme Y it.
would go to all (with a limit of four) at once, but with the order;
ofpreference snown--rf)r, if the applicant expressed no preference,:
. he;would be expected to go to the first plac$ accepting him. Thef
ellee* ©f both schemes would be that the universities would get;
atia far earlier date a realistic picture of the candidates they hadi
to draw from .while candidates could no longer secure an offer!
©f-adsoAssion from several places, leave to the last moment their;
©wn choice, *ad thereby delay a decision of their contemporaries.;
The idea-is premising, ©ut there are obvious difficulties which
will nave to be flu-ashed out at the March conference. As is rec-|
ognized in the report, Oxford and Cambridge are in a peculiar,
position in part because selection there is by the colleges and not
by the universities, partly because a very large number of ap^
plicants choose one or other of them as first preferences. It would
be best of all if they would come into the scheme. But if they!
did, would the two universities as such come in or the colleges
_as selecting units? And if the colleges, would - a candidate who;
named four or five Oxbridge collebes forego his. chance of going
to Glasgow or Liverpool? Perhaps he should; too many people;
apply to too many colleges now. But if Oxford and Cambridge
did riot Join ki the scheme, then it would work; only- if they agreed}
to finish all their selection work by early February at the latest.   I
Another difficulty is that many if not most of the admissions
are bound to be provincial. Except at Oxbridge, entrants to universities in the United Kingdom are required to have passed in
.two subjects at Jeast at GCE" A" levels Some candidates are So
strong that the selectors can safely reckon oh their acquiring
this qualification in due time and make them a firm offer months
before it comes. With many others—perhaps the total—that,.the
olfer must be conditional on failures is fairly predictable; but there
m«st always be .Surely,- some last-minute vacancies for which those
low pn the ljst can still wait in hope. But, if so, what about their
applications to enter other institutions of higher education-
teacher training colleges, or technical colleges, or perhaps Irish

universities?
Lest you forget
For the first time this year the Ubyssey was forced to cancel
an issue. The print shop in which the paper is printed did not have
the facilities to cope with the load placed upon it due to a sudden
change in the production schedule of the 28-page Open House
edition. , ,      : t
Many orgartizatiohs on the campus were counting on that
issue for publicity/ They did hot get it. This made them unhappy.
We regret the inconvenience but we suggest that all organizations remember that there are other publicity media on this
campus and that some of them are almost as effective as The
Ubyssey. .

Letters to the Editor
No Discrimination?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I notice that the Minister of
Education, Les Peterson, is laboring under the delusion
that, no racial discrimination
exists on our campus, perhaps
he does not know of'two'of
our fraternities, namely Alpha
Tau Omega and Sigma Chi,
two groups thai welcome only
white protestant males into
their membership.
I don't think any one of us
has the right to be smug about
the state of affairs in South
Africa while racial segregation
exists right in our own backyard.
Sincerely,
Garry Watkins
Prayer not enough?
Editor,        v
The ^Ubyssey, •
Dear Sir:
In a letter to the. editor on
Jan., 26 there was a, call to
arms for "militant christians
Willing to die for their beliefs"
to attack atheists, Communism
and the Student Fair Play for
Cuba Club. All conveniently
lumped together to avoid intellectual strain.
Christian John Foster Dulles
was willing te have nuclear
destruction rather than let the
world risk "the threat of atheism." At a recent Student
Christian meeting a University
professor speaking about the
nuclear threat was asked what
we could do abdut it. His only*
answer  was   "that  we  pray."
To "atheists who feel that
thinking and constructive action are not yet outmoded this
was disconcerting. After two
thousand years of trial and
error some Christians seem to
be looking forward to the error to end alLerrors. It is too
bad that men with the stature
of James Endicott and Albert
Schweitzer are so little heeded;
and so .rare among their ranks.
Perhaps the author of the
letter believes we should learn
from  Batista  how  to   counter
the S.F.P.C.C. by closing the
University and shooting the
students who protest? 'Batista
also had an effective program
for countering atheistic radicals.
Consider the case of two
young sisters, devout Catholics
wlio were found to have won
a book by Leon Trotsky. Picked up "for questioning" by his
police their .black eyed, raped,
tortured, and mutilated young
bodies were found the next
day with bullet holes across
their naked chests.

Down with nationalism
:    By JACK ORNSTEIN
In Russia they save what
parts of a corpse they can and
deposit them in a "body bank."
Dr. M. Cohen of Winnipeg predicts that soon our hospitals
may have human body banks.
I advocate this practice, provided that the contributor has
willed his body to humanity.
And provided that he is dead.
Doctors may soon be able to
replace any damaged organ.
This could make introductions
awkward — "I'd like you to
meet George Smith and account No. 127 of the State
body bank." But that's not all,
We'll be replacing our girl
friend's efforts with the busts
that Marilyn built.
Synthetic blood in all shades
of red and blue may toe developed. And those transparent
plastic purses — we'll know
without asking what our friend
had for lunch —- we'll see it
being digested (with synthetic
gastric juices of course).
But their goal may be the
test tube baby and the synthetic man. The rest of us will
be sterilized and leucotomized:
there'll be no threat of a population or a war. We must draw
a line. Einstein left his brain
behind but he (absent-mindedly) took his mind with him.
I'm for using all available resources in order to save lives
or to make them less onerous.
But we must watch the State
and the doctors (who may soon
become part of it).
They'll be wanting our bodies after death and our minds
before.     1  don't   mind   giving
them my body tout I've no mind
to give them my mind. But
I'll give them a piece of it until one of us "withers away."
We'li soon see the United Nations collapse. Communist China was never in it and Russia
will soon withdraw. So it's a
choice between one World
State (capital letters attention-
getters only) or none. If you
wish to prepare for the former,
read Bertrand Russell. If you
prefer the latter, don't join the
Nuclear Disarmament Club and
disregard all (Communistic and
pacifistic) pleas for neutrality.
It's not a case of sticking our
heads in the sand: it's a case
of using them or losing them!
I've stopped standing for
"god save the queen" (I'm an
atheist) and for "o canada"
(I'm an internationalist). Besides, the "o" in "o Canada"
expresses pain, fear, grief or
surprise, none of which I ex-
perience when impatiently
waiting for the concert or ball
game. If you want to know
what this has to do with body
banks, remember that the
mind banks aren't visible.
They are comprised of the liberties lost centuries ago when
ugly nationalism (compared to
internationalism) gained popularity. That is why I merely
chuckle at the idea of Jesus
saving but advocate suspicion
of any move by any state which
could eventually lead to absurdities (e.g. test tube babies
and mass sterilization) such as
those indicated by Aldous Hux-
lev. Through the fog do I see
a Brave New World? friday, February 24,  1961

A visit to International House,

This week's nomination for
the Completely Useless People
party: People who stand outside lecture halls laughing and
joking loudly while classes are
in session.
To some of  you  who read
my column it may come as a
shock   to  learn  the   CUP  also
stand for a starving journalistic    orphan    called    Canadian
University Press.
CUP BORN
CUP was born New Year's
Day 13 years ago in Winnipeg.
The midwives were 12 Canadian university newspaper editors who were interested in
the possibilities of a nationwide news service.
They hoped such a service
would consolidate student
opinion and abolish sensationalism.
In the first few years CUP
developed a wire service,
standardized the style and circulation of feature materials
and editorials.
The results of this can be
seen in the many stories from
across Canada The Ubyssey
carries1 with the initials CUP
in the dateline.
After a war-time slump
CUP grew to toe a gangling
adolescent with 20 full-member papers. In 1953-54 mem-
ibership reached 22.
MATURITY   REACHED
In 1958 CUP reached maturity.
. At the annual National Conference in Winnipeg the members voted to form a national
office and to elect a full-time
National President. Previously
followed by a basketball game
at War Memorial Gym or
"DAMN YANKEES" at the
Auditorium will highlight the
evening.
The purpose of the Conference is to introduce high schpol
students to all aspects of University life and higher education. . .  .-
CALGARY (Special) — Maurice Yacowar, 18, editor-in-chief
of the UAC Gauntlet, student
newspaper of the University of
Alberta at Calgary, has been
fired for what student council
described as Yacowa's refusal
to co-operate.
At a special meeting, the
council decided that quality of
the" paper had deteriorated to
the point where council could
no longer accept the responsibility for its editorial policy.
A statement issued after the
meeting said "the editorial policy up to the present time has
been such as to seriously damage the reputation of the university. Student opinion has not
been reflected adequately in the
editorial policies. ..."
Yacowar immediately apologized for any embarassment his
editorship may have caused to
the paper.
"I can appreciate the position
in which the student council
found itself and bear no personal
animosities toward any individual'.on council or council bodies,"
the. young  former editor said.
Earler in the year Yacowar
had been forced to apologize
after publishing a strong editorial denouncing poppy day.
Immediately prior to his dis
missal, Yacowar published anr
unauthorized literary supplement. Copies of the paper were
seized by student council, but
this was not given as a reason
for  Yacowar's   dismissal.
Following his dismissal, Yacowar urged his staff members to
reconsider, when they threatened to walk out en masse, in
protest over the firing. It was
pointed out that advertising commitments made it imperative
that the next seven issues of the
paper be published.
Yacowar, who has been nominated to run for NFCUS chairman, said he will continue to
run, as will Leroy Whitehead,
consulting editor of the seized
literary edition.
A poll taken by the Gauntlet
indicated about 56 per cent of
the student body still support the
fired editor. Former associate;
editor Alan Arthur was named
as new editor. : i
TOTEM?
All those who nave not bought
a Totem and wish to do so must
order one before March 1, 1961.
The price is $5 and totems
can be ordered at the AMS
office. :•'<:
All graduates who paid their
$10 graduation fee automatically
receive &' Totem.
the   position   was   held   by  a
student.
Doug Parkinson, graduate
of McMaster University, held
this post until this year when
Ted Johnson, graduating student of McMaster, was elected.
Like any growing young
Canadian CUP also has developed a standard of morals.
This standard found expression during the 1960 national
conference. Member newspapers passed a Charter of the
Student Press in Canada and
a revised Code pf Ethics.
All this time CUP gave
more and more service. It had
initiated trophy competitions
among the member papers, a
permanent clipping file and
paper exchanges.
CUP now has a membership
of 26 papers  representing all
the major universities and colleges across Canada.
MONEY PROBLEMS
However, like most college
students, CUP has money
problems.
This year $1,400 is needed
to balance the budget. Ubyssey
has promised to raise $70 of
this.
Next year CUP will need
$4,700 for a total proposed
budget of $8,000.
In an attempt to raise
money to continue the service
it gives to its members and to
the journalistic world, CUP
has submitted a brief to the
Royal Commission on Publications.
The brief asks the Commission to recommend a federal
subsidy to the Canadian University Press.

Second special
UBC has received a grant of
$150,000 from The Fund for
Adult Education to enable the
university to conduct an expanded adult education program in the liberal arts, including public affairs.
This is the second major
grant made by the Fund to the
university, the firsts having
been awarded in 1957 for a
three-year program of study-
discussion courses iri the liberal arts (known in British
Columbia as Living Room
Learning).
The hew grant is made on
the condition that the university will devote t6 this project
an equal amount in staff and
program resources during the
grant periods.
In announcing the grant,
Mr. C. Scott Fletcher, president of The Fund for Adult
Education (which was established by the Ford Foundation
as an independent agency in
1951), stressed the great advances that have been made
in the past decade in liberal
education and "education for
public responsibility". He was
gratified with the imaginative
way in which UBC was taking
the study-discussion program
to communities throughout the
province.
According to Dr. N. A. M.
MacKenzie, president of UBC,
, the gi«nt, ito cover a period of
five   years, will be, used  to
strengthen the university's ex
tension activities in three
main areas.
The first of these is the
general field of liberal education for adults. The second is
education about public affairs
designed to help provide the
well - informed leadership so
vitally needed in our democratic society. The third is the
Living Room Learning program of study groups which is
now actively organized in 41
communities of the province.
■In all three of these areas, particular attention will be given
not only to the Greater Vancouver area, but also to all
the Other main population centres of the province.
The Department of University Extension, which will administer this expanded program, will celebrate its 25th
anniversary in 1961, having
served the people of British
Columbia in higher adult education since 1936. In commenting on the grant, Dr. John
Friesen, director of the Extension Department, emphasized that it was particularly
gratifying for the department
to receive the recognition and
opportunities made possible
by this award as University
Extension embarked 0 n i t s
second quarter century.
Formal presentation of the
grant will be made by Mr.
Fletcher when he visits the
University of British Columbia
in late March.

Delmore Schwartz will read and comment on
selections from his poetry at noon on Monday in the Auditorium. For two decades Mr.
Schwartz, 47, has been one of America's most
highly regarded poets and literary critics. He
has also, during this time, been in turn editor
and associate editor of Partisan Review (1943-
55) poetry editor of New Republic (1955-57), Assistant Professor of English at Harvard (1940-
47), and a Visiting Lecturer at leading American Universities (1947-55). Currently he is working on a book of short stories (his first collection was published in 1948), a novel, and a play.
A year ago Mr. Schwartz was awarded the
1959 Bollingen Prize in Poetry, the most esteemed honor of its kind in America, for his
fifth volume of verse, Summer Knowledge (New
and Selected Poems, 1938-1958). The first half
of this work, a somewhat revised reissue of Mr.
Schwartz's first volume of poetry (concerning
whose style Allen Tate wrote in 1938: "the only
genuine innovation since Pound and Eliot came
upon the scene twenty-five years ago") is entitled "The Dream of Knowsledge"; and the
most significant aspect of the- work as a whole
is the fact that the early "dream" has ripened
into the "Summer Knowledge" of the latter half
of the book, which for the most part contains
poems written from 1953-58.
In-anearly poem, Mr. Schwartz had asked:
Whence, if ever, shall come the actuality
Of a voice speaking the mind's knowing,
.      The sunlight bright on the green window-
shade,
And the self articulate, affectionate, and
flowing,
Ease,   warmth,   light,   the utter  showing,
When in the white bed all things are made.
The affectionate, flowing self has become an
actuality in the warmth and light of "Summer
Knowledge":
It is the knowledge of the truth of love
and   the   truth  of  growing:  it  is   the
knowledge   before   and   after   know-
! ledge:
For, in a way, summer knowledge is not
j knowledge at all: it is second nature,
first nature fulfilled, a new birth and
a new death for rebirth, soaring and
rising out of the flames of turning
October, burning November, the towering and falling fires, growing more and
more vivid and tall
In the consummation and the annihilation
of the blaze of fall.
This is a bit over-ripe perhaps, but one is
convinced that Mr. Schwartz, who has been
one of the most alert poetic intelligences in
America, has attained to sure-footed knowledge
—convince more, though, by the quieter surprise and by the more gently spurting, spiralling
rhythms of quickening joy in such poems as the
following:
Is it morning? Is it the little morning
Just before dawn? How big the sun is!
Are those the birds? Their voices begin
All over and in the air, speaking the words
Which are more than words, with mounting consciousness:
And everything begins to rise to the
brightening
Of the slow light that ascends to the
blaze's lightning!
Mr. Schwartz has been essentially a lyric
poet from the first, it seems to me. The shorter-
winded, slant abstractions of the earlier poetry,
which sleejjlessly probed deception in the Auden-
esque labyrinth of the mind, often enough relaxed into full-throated ease. But it was not until
he could be more light-hearted, about deception
that he could free himself from the incantatory
style of much of the recent verse. In the loose-
stepping style of "The Foggy, Foggy Blue," he
tells us:
But tonight 1 am going to the masked ball,
Because it has occurred to me
That the masks are more true than the faces:
—Perhaps this too is poetry?
I no longer yearn to be naive and stern
And masked balls fascinate me:
Now that I know that most falsehoods are true
Perhaps I can join the charade?
This is, at any rate, my new and true view:
Let live and believe, 1 say.
CUT
EDITOR:
our erudite readers
Dear Sir:
With regard to your recent
criticism of the Frederick
Wood Theatre's production of
"The Burnt Flowerbed,"' I can
find only one good point —
it came too late to dissuade
anyone from seeing this excellent play. To a disciple of the
Sun or the Province, slashing
criticism may seem to be the
only way for a critic to distinguish himself, but here it
only gave the impression of
snobbish bad taste.
As to the actual production;
the casting was superb, a study
of the faces alone characterized the players, the acting and
staging were  excellent.
The didacticism you mentioned, although startlingly
evident, was yet integrated into the fabric of the play with
such a fine and delicately-
woven thread as to catch and
hold the entire audience in its
mesh.
In your next "dramatic criticism," please, a little less
English 100. A play is meant
to be enjoyed, and this enjoyment should not be ruthlessly
cut out in unnecessary dissection.

The twenty-five magnificent
paintings from the Duke of
Bedford's famous private collection are on view until February 28th at the Vancouver
Art Gallery. Tne greatest age
of painting — the seventeenth
century—is richly represented.
Several of the paintings deserve notice because they have
been recently divested of the
obscuring, time-yellowed varnish which disfigures works of
that period. The serious art-
lover is aware of the following
fact. Varnish must be applied
to the surface of paintings because it is the only way to protect pigments from the combined ravages of air and time.
But this clear protective coat
turns yellow with age, so that
blues turn green, reds orange,
whites yellow, greys brown—
and shadows lose translucence,
becoming dull and heavy. Original colours com p le t e 1 y
change, and the whole effect is
either deeply altered or entirely ruined. Removing this old
varnish clears away a brownish veil, restoring original
colours.
Van Dyck's full-length portrait of Ann, Countess of Bedford, painted in 16J7, is the
most arresting and radiant canvas of all. It was cleaned only
a few weeks ago, so that the
white satin dress has now all
the gleam and subtlety of a
pearl. Learned from Rubens,
Van Dyck's miraculous method
of painting is nowhere better
seen than in this example. His
portraits of men may be deep
in character, but those of women are an ageless epitome of
elegance  and   charm.
Connoisseurs of painting are
also aware, seeing this collection, that whatever may be
said about Art, it means quality, i.e., values. The value of a
painting, like that of a jewel,
depends on its' substance. Tl
cannot  be   faked,   imitated
copied. A painting is a physu
object   constructed out of  n
terials —unlike literature a
music.     When  this fact  is
nored, two fallacies common
arise. The more serious one
that   methods   of  painting  a
not   essentially   important
aesthetic value. The less serio
one  is that  reproductions  a
substitutes for painting, whei
as they are merely souvenii
The first error,  supported  1
tomes of casuistry, has caus<
the gradual but complete ru
of the craft of painting, esc
cially  during  the  past  eigh
years, aided by much so-call<
criticism. The consequences
the  second  error  have  turn*

farce and spread misjudgmer

snobbery    and    fashion.    Poj

character-portrait and magi
terial handling of exquisite d

tones is due to its recent deal

Monday's Mussoc performance of Dam Yankees was not
without its virtues even if
most ot tliem were not musical.
Yet the Adler-Ross score
seems suitable for a competent .
amateur presentation — most
of its numbers require more
gusto than vocal finesse. In
this respect Mussoc's balanced,
well-projected chorus performed admirably. Esepcially robust was the chorus of ballplayers, whose solo quartet
(Karl Kappcs, Gerry Cook,
Don North, and Tom Skupa)
really "slugged" out the song
"Heart."
Grace MacDonald's choreo-,
graphy, while consisting primarily of routine patterns, deserves credit, through the help
of some lively, dancers, fpr its
spiritedness. Excessive n u m-
bers impaired the "Who's got
the pain" sequence, however.
A less crowded stage would
have permitted more imaginative routines.
Perhaps the less said about
the orchestra the better. Di
spite the competence of a fe1
individual players, the who!
was pretty awful. It almo;
seemed at times that the vi<
lias were playing in the twelv
tone scale. Even the overtur

ed selections, while handle

eral different notes (varyin

wouldn't have produced a:
ideal orchestral balance but i
might have better coped wit]

iVe READ prism!
Prismatically speaking, the
cover on issue 2:2 is' a considerable improvement upon its
predecessors, serving the tandem functions of indicating the
magazine's geographical locus,
and setting off the word
PRISM as if it were chiseled,
in a staute. One is tempted
to say that the -improvement
is monumental.
The art work inside is fine,
too, as has been the illustrious
work in the past few issues.
The first drawing is an imposing introduction to George
Woodcock's verse play, Maskerman, an interesting work I
would like to have heard performed on CBC last August.
M'ichael Matthew's rhetorical
allegation that the poetry is
half baked (or rather, half-
Fryed) is not altogether true,
though it does have its moments of rawness.
Mr. Woodcock begins with
an audacious verve that joggles
the imagination out of its.Williams-induced prejudices,: but
after a while the, opening rush
falters. What emerges is a
strange admixture of high poetic brilliance and dull movie-
magazine cliche. The imagery
. is at all times well-integrated,
and at others hopelessly foreign. Maskerman at one point
says that he had never "felt
the knife of jealousy turn in
my side," — a metaphor that
wrenches the reader out of the
poem and into the movie magazine.
Maskerman comes back
quickly, however, with a neat
touch, referring to his divorce
decree as "The Magna Carta
of Alfred Maskerman." Unhappily, too much of his dialogue is channeled into epigrams hopeful of immortality.
The theme of Lorelei combing her locks on the marital
rocks is an important one in
twentieth century literature,
and Mr. Woodcock has made a
lyrical and at times revelatory
contribution to Anglo-Canadian
literature. In rendering the
lack of communication between
Maskerman and Maria, he has
shown an agonizingly-real
glimpse of contemporary life.
I regret only that his most
captivating story is the One
that precedes the action of the
play.
The two prose pieces are
stylistically at; opposite pxjles^
and^f aiii-riffr|tid''^'.:'*t'i^'nij*el£l«i
seeking the warmer regions of
the equator, Margaret Saltern's
story, A Piece of Green, begins with a starshower of :m-
congriiously flashy images and
epithets that bedazzle the reader's eyes, refusing to let him
see more than a bare glimpse
of the actual scene of the narrative. Occasionally the images
work for the story, but the
author's thesauric virtuosity
usually masks where it is intended to intensify. I could
not become concerned whether
or not the woman stifled by her
ungreen mining town ever did
succeed  in  her quest  for her
own   insignificant   Golden-
Green Fleece.
Vince Sharman's portrait of
a lonely homosexual, Any
Game You Want, is about
twice as long as it should be.
Displaying a hard and clean
prose that shows considerable
promise, Sharman subdues its
impact by forcing highly unlikely dialogue upon his four
principal characters. It is also
a Httle difficult to believe that
a fellow as unconsciously male
and virile as George Mclvor,
and one who knew his way
around so well, would sit so
comfortably .while Philip is
trying to seduce him, and for
certain he would never call
him "Philip."
Sharman   makes   two   mistakes common to the tyro hard-
boilisf.  He   uses the   worn-out
symbols    for     the    run-down
apartment   house:   c a ibH) age
smells and bare lightbulbs. And
he   confuses   narrative   power
with depiction of violence, psychosis and  depravity, Happily
the.sheer making of lucid sen11 ■:
tenees is good*  and shews nos
reason  why  it should not get i
better.   There   should just; be
fewer of them. ,.
.  I   will  say  little  about   the.
poetry, because poetry is a
mystery to me. Thelma Lower's
Boom Man shows remarkable
restraint for a lady poet, and
exhibits a sense of control over
the line as a natural .unit of
poetic speech—more than can
be said for many gentleman
poets around. This is the best
poem in the magazine.
Wilfred Watson, as always;
appears very English in his
conception of the poem as an
expression designed to supply
beauty that does not exist in
the real world. In a poem, one
converts the actual into the
formal. Watson, on the other
glove, fits into his formal as
much of the actual as will not
disrupt   the formality.
I will do no more than mention David Wevill's Prayer
For A Pervert In Hiding, as I
never disturb a man who is
Saying a prayer.

• champion swimmer
gave a   program which   made
full use of his versatility.
Harris began his performance by drawing a full-length
portrait of himself as a dying
Australian stockman. The legs
of the portrait were drawn in
the record time of three  seconds.
Harris then sang his own
composition, "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport," accompanying himself on a "wobble-
board."
After this number, Harris
demonstrated his facility on
the "digeree-doo," and then announced that he was keen on
songs about mice. A number of
mouse songs followed.
Harris' rapid-fire joke delivery and ebullient style was
warmly received by the audience, who joined loudly in the
choruses of "Waltzing Matilda"
and "Tie Me Kangaroo Down
Sport."

Unions bastions
of democracy
By RUTH ROBERTSON
Approaching merger of the CCF party and labor was described Wedneesday by CCF National Chairman David Lewis
as an exercise in democracy never equalled in Canada or any
other country.
Lewis, who has been with the
CCF from its beginning and is
now on the New Party planning
board, spoke to a capacity audience in Bu. 104. He stressed the
democratic nature of both the
labor unions and the New Party
merger.
"In forming the New Party,"
he said, "We have gone to the
unions and talked about this
matter with them. We realize
that labor is a comprehensive
force in Canadian society, and
we want them to feel that they
have helped form the New Party and that it is a part of them."
effective class instrument in opposing the big corporations.
"There are about 500,000 labor union leaders in North America,"  he continued,   "and  out
of all these, after a trial of tremendous intensity, only two or
i three dozen were convicted.
|     "Surely this is nothing com-
] pared to the number of political
trials and penalties.
"To say that because a few
were found guilty that all trade
unions are crooked would be
the same as saying that all politicians are corrupt," Lewis concluded, "and this is the language of liars and irresponsible
political  demagogues."
"This sort of free popular
participation is what has been
missing from Canadian political
life.
Lewis said he is not ashameSd
of his association with labor. He
said that people who attack
unions should remember that
when democracy fails, as in Hitler's Germany or in Mussolini's
Italy, the unions are abolished
first of all.
"The reason the unions are:
so widely attacked now is that
they have shown themselves an

OTTAWA (CUP) — The last
push in the bed pushing marathon went, to 19 Mount Allison
co-eds who last week outpushed
a men's team from Amherst to
Sackville.
Male honor was only partially
blackened because the men were
required to carry their bed over
the 19 mile course. They led
until near the finish line when
one of the team slipped on ice,
the bed tumbled, and the girls
rolled ahead to win by a bed
length.
This race was one of the few
which were not being contested
by other universities. No one
was prepared to accept the
Queen's push of 1,000 miles in
150 hours. Queens didn't care,
and even claimed a speed record
of 12.4 miles sustained over one
mile.
However, this is likely to he
challenged by three other universities each of which claims
the speed record. Waterloo set
'the first record with 8.4 mph,
then Western came up with 9
mph, which Waterloo refused to
accept. And Acadia is also running into difficulties with the
distance record. It doesn't accept Queens' run, has doubts
about McMaster, and refuses to,
accept Dalhousie's 345 miles
which tops Acadia's 301.
While some students considered the fad as foolish, their elders have a variety of views on
the matter. The Toronto Star
asked "are our college students^
too tame?" And quoted Canadian
Poet Irving Layton who believes
that Canadian students seem to.
lack imagination, passion and
concern for the great issues of
bur day.
The usually conservative Ottawa Citlfcen took the affair
lightly and claimed that a case
could be made for bed pushing.
"It is, after all,, no mbre undig-;
nifred and unprofitable to push
a hospital bed . . . than it is to
climb a mountain ... (or) to
push a small white ball into 18
rioles in the ground."

Winslade has been a consistent leader on the floor at UBC.
As well as continually leadingi
the 'Bird scorers, Winslade has

The contest started slowly,
with the Bears striking the first
blow at the two-minute mark
with a single point. The visitors
held the slim lead until almost
quarter time when UBC started
to roll and quickly grabbed the
lead.
Although the visitors put up
a strong fight, with accurate
shooting and close checking, the
revitalized Thunderbirds could
not be beaten. They held a commanding 35-19 lead, and .were
showing no signs of giving it up.
Winslade stole the ball from

By DON ROBERTSON
President, Men's Athletic Assoc.
We are now concluding our
third year of competition in
the Western Canadian* Inter-
eollegiate Athletic Union. It
would not be facing reality if
we were to say that these first
years were satisfactory in all
regards; certainly we have
been disappointed in some aspects of the league, but, in the
majority of cases, we have
been satisfied and encouraged.
Let me first mention one or
two disappointing features of
the league, and then outline
our reasons for being satisfied
and encouraged by our first
three years.
'   *      *      *
Some of us were, needless
to say, over-optimistic when
we expected a drastic change
in the attitude of our students
towards football and basketball as spectator sports when
we entered the. WCIAU.
This anticipated change did
not occur. Attendance at the
games has not been down, but
it certainly hasn't soared. In
short, the enthusiasm of our
students was not sparked by
competition with other Canadian .universities.
Perhaps we expected too
much. Indeed, there are many
avenues which must be explored in solving the problem
of attendance at our games
and, possibly, with proper
promotion, the WCIAU is part
of the answer.
A second: disappointing feature of our league is the failure of Manitoba to field a
football  team this season. A

not satisfactory. We are in a
more favorable position than
ROBERTSON
the  prairie schools  in being
able to arrange games  with
U.S. colleges.
»■*■'*
In spite of these disappointments, I am still a strong supporter of continuing competition in the WCIAU. Looking
at the present situation, we
can see that the competition
and he calibre is good. The
recent WCIAU feneing and
badminton tournament is an
example of this.
This league also provides
competition in hockey, which
was absent in the Evergreen
and which is an important
part of our program, particularly with the immediate possibility of a campus arena.
Yet another advantage is
that the member universities
are well known to all students. The Evergreen colleges
had no meaning for us at all.
However, in my opinion, to
entirely justify our participation in the WCIAU, we must
look to the future and its possibilities. Very briefly, these
are the events we hope for:
1. The completion of plans
for National Athletic Competitions. A committee is at present working on this matter
under the chairmanship of
UBC's Dean A. W. Matthews.
2. The intention of the University of Calgary to enter;
competition within the next
three or four years. They have
indicated their desire to compete in football, and are already playing basketball with. ,
the prairie schools.
3. The federal government
is taking immediate steps io
institute a federal grant for;
amateur athletics. If we were
not in the WCIAU, we would
not benefit from these pro*;
posed plans.
*     **      *
If we ever hope to increase
the interest of the student in
spectator sports, I believe "it
must be done in the WCIAU,
because the.students did not,
and would not, I feel, get enthusiastic about colleges they
have never heard about.
I could elaborate on many
other favorable aspects of the
WCIAU. And I sincerely hope
that in the next few years, the
success . that so many of us
have envisioned in this new
league will become a reality.

Ubyssey, over which several editors were dismissed, saying that
such actions are too serious to
be called pranks.
In reply to a remark by UBC
law student Tony Gargraves,
CCF-MLA for Mackenzie, who
said: "It was only a mock debate," Mrs. Brown said: "It
seems every time something like
this happens, we try to cover it
up as a prank."
She said of the university administration: "Since when has it
never been the role Of those in
authority to exercise discipline
over our young people?"
"This lack of virtuousness and
moral standards is not just a
mere passing whim, but calls for
serious consideration and action
by the authorities at UBC to
supervise and censor such distasteful actions," Mrs. Brown
told the legislature.
Mrs. Brown was speaking in
the budget debate and making
her first address to the House
since her appointment as minister without portfolio.
"I don't know what she was
trying to prove," said AWS
President Charkow. "In attacking the debate, and suggesting
censorship, she was really encroaching upon our academic
freedom."  ° '" ■  •
Dean Walter H. Gage, administrator on inter-faculty affairs,
told radio station CKLG that
the University would not enter
into the matter.
Mrs. Brown stressed throughout the inteview that she had
great respect for most university
students.
"As far as the university goes,
I'll do anything I can for it,"
she said, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able Jo support such a
debate."
"I am quite aware that it is
only a small minority of the
students who do such things,"
she told The Ubyssey.
