Brought PSPA
To Campus
"We blitzed them until we
won it," said council president
Ron Bray, explaining how UBC
won the 1956 Pacific Student
President's Association at last
May's conference in San Diego.
After sending a formal invitation to the 75 odd universities
in the two-nations student council association, UBC delegates
Ron Bray and Gordon Armstrong invaded San Diego armed
with photos, tourist propaganda,
and a special one page "Come
to British Columbia" Ubyssey
"We worked hard but we won
the 1956 convention for British
Columbia,"  said   Bray.
Part of the persuasion was an
invitation scroll signed by Vancouver Mayor Fred Hume, University President N. A. M. Mac-
JKenzie, and Ron Bray, presented to the PSPA. executive at
the May convention.

Quoth   the   Raven
When we published it, we didn't expect to compete with
Time, Life, True Confessions, Pix, Quix, Hush and Flush.
We realized that even though you attend university
your reading, as does ours, centers around Little Orphan
Annie, or, if you are interested in the Cold War, around Joe
Palooka. So we printed only 2500 copies.
We felt, with some justification, that 2500 students
would be interested in reading it and encouraging future
editions. However, we. overestimated by about 1300.
During registration week only 1200 purchased issue
number one of Raven—the new student literary magazine.
We felt, as a member of the English Department expressed it
that "It is a crime that UBC does not have a literary magazine." So over the summer we decided to remedy the situation and the Raven is the excellent (according to the English
profs) result.
The magazine represents the best in creative campus
writing. We believe that it is our duty and yours to encourage such writing—which means buying the Raven. It is on
sale in the AMS office and in the Bookstore.
Surely 1300 of you are ready to put Daddy Warbueks
in your sordid past.

Editor, the Ubyssey, Sir:
UBC students should realize
that beer parlor waiters are
human beings and have bills
to pay like the rest of us. And
we should govern ourselves
The liquor laws of our Province at present forbid any one
under 21 to enter a beer parlor.
If a waiter is convicted of serving beer to a minor he must
pay a $300 fine, and the beer
parlor concerned becomes subject to temporary closure at
the discretion of the Liquor
Control Board.
The minor concerned must
pay a maximum fine of $50.
I will not comment on the
New Courses Draw Zeros At Registration
Cragg Assails Conventional Outlook
Dear Sir,
Two new group - courses,
Mediaeval Studies and Renaissance Studies, offered for the
first time this year by UBC,
attracted little attention and no
registrations during registration week, much to the disappointment of the seven or eight
departments responsible for
drawing them up.
They   were   designed   for
the student  who   wanted  a
more general training in the
humanities    than    what    a
single honours course seemed
to   offer   him.   and   it   was
thought that the grouping of
history, philosophy, and literature,  with   the  provision
of   an   option   in   some   one
field of  his special interest,
would meel with his wishes.
The  choice   of   Mediaeval
Studies   or   of   Renaissance
Studies   has   not,   however,
been his choice for this year.
Granting  that  these  studies
present considerable challenge
to the student, as they should
do if ihey arc to carry specific
honours degrees, Faculty is not
convinced that challenge alone
would deter  tho able  student.
Something   else  obstructs,  and
one guess is that to the student
of    conventional    outlook    the
Middle   Ages   and  the   Renaissance seem remote indeed from
the   world   he   thinks   he   is
forced to live in and thus far
removed from his personal interests and ambitions: to be
up-to-date is the thing, not to
be behind-hand—or preferably
to be a little advanced upon
the times. Actually the purpose of Mediaeval Studies is to
advance the student upon his
own times and the purpose of
Renaissance Studies to keep
him up-to-date.
A second obstacle seems to
be the immediate practical consideration of the value of an
honours degree in Mediaeval
Studies or an honours degree
in Renaissance Studies. In answer to this it can be pointed
out that, aside from the personal satisfaction of acquiring
a good education, both groups
of study automatically give
two majors to the student intending to teach in the High
Schools; if he wishes to proceed
to his M.A. he is qualified so
to proceed by the option of his
choice, whether in English,
French, Russian, Latin, Greek,
History, or Philosophy, and
could, for example, have his
Honours B.A. in Renaissance
Studies and his M.A. in English.
There is a further practical consideration. The training for practical life, say for
the world of business and
industry, is essentially a
training in dealing with human problems, vast in their
range, 'touchy and complicated in their effect, a training of mind over technique
and routine procedures.
These courses make ample
provision for problems —
economic, social, religious,
political, psychological —
problems touchy and vast
and inescapable. The training ihey offer for political
life is a training in the background of the political problems which face the world
today, without which training an interest in current
events is little more than
idle curiosity and scattering
of the emotions.
The difference between
this type of training and that
afforded by professional
training is the difference
between personally - made
training ind ready-made
training. The first depends
largely on imaginative self-
discipline, the second on the
mastery of facts and techniques, though both require
the mastery of facts and exercise of the imagination.
The individual's gifts and
temperament often decide
his choice, but the crying
need today, in the world of
letters, industry, and government, is co-ordinating ability, the ability really to organize, to take advantage of
difference and incompatibili
ties and create out of them a
dynamic and purposeful society. This ability we call
leadership. It was with this
need in mind and the belief
that this latent ability is possessed by members of the
student-body that Mediaeval
Studies and Renaissance Studies were introduced this
year into UBC. Other combinations of courses might
be devised, but it is difficult
to see how they could improve on what Is already
being offered, a world of
yesterday pressing hard on
the world of today and tomorrow. In other words, we
are still pretty ancient in our
problems, or. if we will,
pretty behind-hand in dealing with them.
Mediaeval   Studies   and   Renaissance  Studies will  remain
in  the University Calendar to
be offered next year  and  the
year after and  the year after
that.    In  the  meantime   First-
Year and Second-Year students
are urged to consider the prerequisites    demanded    in    the
Calendar   for a  liberal education   and   do   today   what   the
vision of tomorrow calls for.
Yours truly,
R. C.  Cragg,
Department   of   English
Chairman   of   the  Committee   on   Mediaeval
obvious injustice of these regulations; the principle that the
law must be obeyed, even if
unjust, is a sound one.
But given these regulations,
the duty of the minor—and I
speak of the type of minor who
is mature enough to drink in
every way but in age—is
Out of common consideration to the harrassed waiter,
he must stay out of beer parlors until he attains his majority.
No-one can reasonably be expected to tell the difference between a twenty-year-old and a
twenty-one year old; yet, each
time a waiter serves beer to a
youthful-looking patron, he is
required by law to guess the
difference—and be right every
time, or face a financially crippling fine.
Under the liquor laws of this
Province, the legal responsibility for keeping beer and
minors apart belongs to the
But the moral responsibility,
the responsibility tha* should
govern the actions of all of us,
rests surely and squarely on
the shoulders of the minor who
wants a glass of beer.
The law must be changed;
but until it is, conscience dictates, and common human consideration insists, that the
"border line" drinker stay out
of the beer parlor.

who, with the assistance of Comedian Farrell taught the freshmen something of college life.
Pep Club head Mike Jeffery
introduced celebrity Jack Farrall
who kept spirits high for a full
15 minutes with a spicy monologue. But he was almost outshone by cigar-smoking Frank
Gnup, who cajoled the crowd
with entreaties to Join his team

Saturday's game, Gnup pointed
out that there were "more on the
field than in the stands" and
urged students to support "any

White-skirted cheerleaders led
the rousing "B-I-R-D-S" into another season adding to their repertoire some go-for-touchdown
cheers, and were joined by master of ceremonies Farrale to
arouse the spirit to animation.
Jeffery unveiled the bashful

some as a result of the ten
million dollar government building grant received by the University last February.
The $158,000 combination
bookstore, post office, coffee
shop, and bus stop being
erected on the main mall opposite the Chemistry Building is expected to be completed before winter. The new,
larger bookstore is designed
to eliminate tht year-round
line-up faced by prospective
book-buyers in the old cramped quarters.
Also to be completed this fall
is the administration building's
new wing where the Bank of
Montreal will be situated.
A $50,000 Home Management
building to replace the present
converted  army   hut   is  under
construction   on   Marine   Drive i
near the East Mall. j
Plans have been approved in j
principle for a $200,000 Arts
building to be erected between
the Women's Gym and the main
mall on the site of the present
tennis courts. Tenders will be
called in early spring and construction will commence as soon
afterwards as posisble.
Plans are being drawn up
for a new Medical Sciences
building to be built on the
parking lots behind the Biological Science! building.
• $2,000,000 of the government
grant has been set aside for
new men's and women's resi*
denccs. Plans and locations are
still  under discussion.
Rotary Club funds will be
used to establish a new International House Association

Plans for Union College addition located tentatively on

Lillooet   Eye-Witness   Mike   Ames
Tells How Socreds Won By-Election
(Ubyssey features Editor
Mike Ames was in Lillooet
during the recent by-election
campaign. He gives his explanation for the Social Credit
Social Credit means nonsense
if you ask me, and I'm not going
to wait to be asked.
But lt is the type of nonsense
that pays off, and that is what
scares me. -
Take the recent LUlooet by-
election, for Instance. Here
the Socred wonder boys were
at their bests so good in fact,
that their newest member to
the Wonder Boy Club won the
election with a 300 vote margin.
Social Credit is winning too
darn many elections for our
own good, I think. But why?
What is their little secret of
success, and why does it have
to work on us?
The  fact that  Social  Credit
has given us good government
is no explanation of its success
in B.C. politics. For one thing,
it is not a fact that Social Credit
has given us good government.
If you want to look at tha
facts you  will soon discover
that Social  Credit hat  don*
little else but talk.
No, what'Bennett and his
boys have done ls to persuade
us into thinking they are giving us good government. But
even that is nothing to worry
about because all governments
try to do the same.
What is important is the way
they persuade us.
Socreds are sharpies, there is
no denying that. They are sharpies and they are smoothies.
One look at Bennett campaigning during the Lillooet by-
election was enough to convince
me he was a sharpie and a
It was also enough to convince me that I do not want
him as premier of B.C.

Big   Pledge
Crop For '55
Intra-Fraternity Council officials expressed hope Monday
that 1955's Fall Rushing program may top the post-war
years, when 10,000 veterans
swamped the campus — and
swelled fraternity membership
rosters to record proportions.
The optimistic forecast is based on the number of enquiries
received at the IFC rushing
registration Tbooth in the AMS
office. No accurate tally has
been kept but officials say the
number justifies their optimism.
Reason for the increase, according to IFC President Keith
Middleton is a change in rushing regulations which abolishes
Jast  year's  $2.00  entry fee.
"Open" rushing, has been in
progress for tho past week, but
most fraternities have scheduled
their functions for next week.
Registration deadline is 11:30
a.m.,  Tuesday,   September 27.
waving and interupting  and
leering and ridiculing, at one
Lillooet  meeting—and  he is
famous fer these characteristics—lack   the   dignity   and
honesty that should accompany a government office.
Throughout   this   particular
Lillooet meeting  Bennett .kept
saying Social Credit was not a
political party and that Social
Credit was not guilty of double
This is the Socred nonsense
I am talking about. The fact is
there was never a political party
so full of double talk as the Social Credit.
And the people of B.C. have
been drinking it all in like
they do the watered-down guff
B.C. calls beer.
Social Credit may net appear to be a political party.
Wonder Boys try hard to look
like   Ood's   right   hand   men
rushing from church steps to
the parliament buildings, stopping   only   long   enough   to
wave Bibles and sing hymns.
People like that.
Socreds  give the appearance
of being  honest,   hard-working
little country folk, not by actually being honest hard-working
country folk—for they are not
—but by calling everyone else
crooked, lazy city rascals.
People get to like that, too.
Bennett and his boys are good
at these tactics. But that is not
their chief source of power. The
power behind the party comes
from the Social Credit League.
The League ls the Socred
method of making the little
man  feel  big;  that ls  their
method  of  lining  up   whole
bunches of Little Socreds so
the Big Socreds can come
around, pat their behlnds fer
them, and tell them what good
Little Socreds they have been.
People just love that.
The Socred League played
an all important role in the
Lillooet by-election. Long before  the  election  date   was
even announced Big Leaguers
and Little Leaguers were getting   together   patting   each
other's egos and laying plana
for the campaign.
In other words, Social Credit
has organization, the type of or* *
ganization    that   reaches   way
down to the small man. That ia
where   Social   Credit   is   way
ahead of the other parties. 1
The other parties will have to
do more than just counter-organize if they wish to beat So- '
cial Credit, however. They will
need the small-man organization
all right, but they also will have
to addpt the glad-handing holy
atmosphere that goes with it before they will be as successful
as the Socreds.
And the point of all this is
that   that  is   just  what  will
eventually    happen.    Politics
are in for n change, and Social Credit is leading the way.
I am not against change—I
am all for it, for that matter
•—but I kind of wish it was In
a different direction.
It  is  not  just  Social  Credit ■
people are voting for, it is an
entirely   new   political  "philosophy and a new method of political   action.   At  least  that is
what  we  are  getting  for  our
yote's worth.
And one of these days we will
be sorry. We are voting for nonsense.
No AMS Card Turned
In Means No Number
An estimated 800 students will be rending their garments
and chewing bitter wormwood on October 10, if they don't
act quickly.  „
Ubyssey managing editor Rod
Smith announced Monday that
these unfortunates failed to turn
in the final card in their registration booklets, and will consequently find their names missing from the Student Directory.
"We must have the names
before Wednesday night," Smith
said. "Or the nifty indispensible
little volume listing the names,
addresses (both home and school)
and phone numbers of every
student won't be ready on time."
Refugees from the "aisle of
bargains" who know or suspect
that their card was not handed
over are asked to jot down such
pertinent information as name,
address, phone number, faculty
and year, and club memberships;
either mail it in, or drop it in
the box provided outside the
Ubyssey offices. No attempt to
sell anything will be made.

Needed In Business World
In more and more companies,
the decisive factor in choosing
managers is going to be the
breadth and depth of executive
As vast areas of what used to
be decision making become subject to mechanical computations
which are all equally correct in
all companies, the edge will be
won by the company whose executives do a better job of
handling the qualitative factors
which remain after the measurable factors have been taken
out, and then of putting all the
pieces together into a single,
dynamic whole.
On one point all authorities
have agreed, Narrow specialisation is not enough) this is
already responsible for most
of the inability of middle management executives to be considered for promotion.
John L. McCaffrey, president
of International Harvester Company, puts it this way: "The
world of the specialist is a narrow one and it tends to produce
narrow human beings. The specialist usually does not see overall effects on the business and
so he tends to judge good and
evil, right and wrong, by the
sole standard of his own specialty.
"This narrowness of view, this
judgment of all events by the
peculiar standards of his own
specialty, is the curse of the
specialist from the standpoint of
top management consideration
for advancement. Except in unusual cases, it tends to put a
road-block ahead of him after
he reaches a certain level."
Thus, there has been a growing call for "breadth" in educa-'day when the executive will be

wlldermeni if, after bending
every effort—and many curricula—to answer insistent demands from business for more
and more specialty and vocational courses on all levels,
they are now abused for burning out graduates unprepared
for the full scope of executive
action in management for today, much less for tomorrow.
But it is apparent that in a
--Larger  Need
m The very fact that the humanities serve a larger need than
management training is one of
the main reasons why they are
so valuable for that purpose.
< There have been developments in traditional educational
disciplines with the liberal arts
which, much to the surprise of
those closest to them, will very
likely turn out to be far more
important to education preparation for management than many
of the flashy subjects which
have seemingly been set up to
serve business needs exclusively.
—More  Pertinent
The study of the humanities,
literature, art and philosophy
1 and of the critical terms these
disciplines use to assess the
world, is startlingly more pertinent and practical than "practical" vocational preparation.
At first glance, the importance of training in literature,
art and philosophy, those fields
hitherto considered peripheral,
k if not downright irrelevant to
management, may be difficult
to see. The contribution of the
physical sciences is obvious. The
If we analyze the central
activity of the executive, his
^process of decision, we can see
three kinds of disciplines which
prepare directly for the skills
and qualities needed:
(1) The executives must distinguish and define the possible
lines of action among which a
choice can be made. This requires imagination, the ability
to catch at ideas, shape them
Binto concrete form, and present
them in terms appropriate to
the  problem.
liberal arts have always been
considered remote from the
practical hurly-burly of daily
decision making.
To demonstrate that precisely the reverse is true, let
us examine the disciplines
within which the executive
moves. In so doing, we may
alter our ideas of his job as it
has traditionally been regarded, and bring into focus the
parallels between the discip*
lines of the liberal arts and
the disciplines of management.
(2) He must analyze the consequences of taking each line of
action. Here the computer and
operations research techniques
can do much, but the executive
must set the framework for the
problems from his experience
and imagination, and work with
his own sensitivity and knowledge in the area of human beings where statistics and scientific prediction are highly fallible

(3) Then in the decision he
must have the grasp to know
its Implications in all areas of
an organism which is itself far
from being absolutely predictable: the company, the market,
the economy, and the society.
The essence of the humanities is meanings and value
judgments on all levels.
When they are well taught,
they force the student to deal
with things as a whole, with
the gradations and expressions of meaning, worked out
in terms of experience coordinated by values and communicated by the disciplined
imagination of the artist or
The key to management,
and to the executives who
make it up, is found in the
very nature of the liberal arts.

The first University Leadership Conference to be held

Sponsored by the Students'
Council, the first annual camp
will provide discussions on publications, student-faculty relations, finances, campus activity
current problems and general
Delegates, 110 in all, will include all presidents of campus
clubs and undergraduate societies invited by the Council
committee. They will leave Vancouver by boat September 30
and return early Sunday evening, October 2.
Leadership conferences, popular at American Universities, were explored by UBC's
delegates to the Pacific Schools
Presidents' Association Conference at San Diego last summer. Representatives Ron
Longstaffe,   Ron   Bray,   and
Oeoff Conway introduced the
idea to UBC and began making
wide scale plans over two
months ago.
At present no other Canadian
University has instituted the
Conference in its curriculum.
Gordie Armstrong, Public Relations Officer at UBC explained Monday "this will be an ex*
perlmental conference. If it is
as successful as similar sessions
in the States, it is quite possible
that other Canadian schools will
adopt our plan."
The purpose of the UBC Convention is to engender a spirit
of co-operation on the campus.
Group discussions with faculty
and students, as well as recreation periods will highlight the
weekends' events.
