 KISSING  BOOTH  UNNECESSARY
Blood Drive Opens With Impressive Total
By UBYSSEY STAFF REPORTER
A crack publicity stunt dreamed up to
promote the blood drive isn't even going to
be needed, it seems. The drive is already
a success.
Monday was only opening day, but if
the swarms of students who appeared at
the armouries are any indication, the drive
will probably be the most successful ever
staged at UBC.
A kissing booth stocked with beautiful
nurses will be set up at the clinic Thursday, kisses selling for a pint of blood each,
but the booth will be only so much decoration.
Because the crowds of donors who turn-
ned up at the clinic opening day necessitated the following emergency measures:
A long double line (unique at UBC); an
extra hour beyond the 4:30 closing time to
handle all queued donors; and extra beds
hastily set up to take care of the rush.
 f	
At the end of the day, a total of 421 the upperclassmen, and claim they'll show
—Photo by Joe Quan
donors had gone through the clinic—nearly
twice the minimum 251) pinls a day.
All a far cry from the spring drive of
last session, when the drive bogged down
when only half-finished, and nurses threatened to pack up and leave unless students
co-operated.
Co-chairmen Joyce Thompson and June
Walker were overwhelmed by the reception given the joint Home Ec-Nurses-spon-
sored drive.
"If this rush continues, Red Cross will
have no worries on our account," said June
Walker happily.
"But this had better continue," she
nddt-d. "There's a shortage of blood in B.C.,
and we've got to maintain the good record."
Meanwhile, the drive is being sparked
by u blood battle between students in Applied Science und Frosh.
The Frosh have issued a challenge to
Faculty of Applied Science bow to j^ivo
blood.
To date the Frosh are making good their
word. A total of 85 Frosh have given
blood, while their rivals have parted with
only 56 pints. ,
The day-end standing showed Artsmen
leading the pack wilh 94 pints. Other standings were as follows: Faculties of Forestry
and Agriculture tied for second place with
23 pints each; Pre-Med, 17; Medicine, 14;
Law, 14; Architecture, 6; Home Economics,
8; Nursing, 5; and Physical Education und
Teacher Training with 2 pints apiece.
Sometime this week the 15,000th donor
will pass through the clinic, and will be
awarded a "mystery prize" for his pint.
That same pint will bring the value of
blood given at UBC so far to $375,000 at
$25 a pint.
That isn't a small gift. And we can
make it bigger.

the game Saturday who wondered where the UBC Band
was—it wasn't. But you can make sure Birds will have
some support at this week's game.
A UBC Simphony Sextette is being formed and anyone who can make a noise on an instrument is invited to
join in. The group will be playing in the students' section

Arts Society
Dissolved
By Executive
Arts undergraduate society
died Saturday, October 3.
A press release from J. S. An-
trobus, AUS vice-president,
dated Oct. 3, reports a decision
to dissolve the organization.
"Executive has concluded
that although the organization
has in the past successfully filled a vital place in the social life
of the 'Arts' students, its functions have now been duplicated
and even more adequately carried out by the smaller university clubs," release states.
Difficulty of developing "a
corporate feeling among the arts
students" was given by the executive as a main reason for tho
intention to dissolve.
Executive decided student

of an organization whose reason
for   existence   in   contemporary j heavily towards the War Memo-i

AT DISCRETION
"Thc roofing of the structure
will be left entirely at the discretion of the university," he
stressed.
"The main consideration behind the BEG Committee's decision to build the pool on the
campus is the fact that UBC is
considered the most favorable
site," he said.
"After the games the pool will
revert to the university and consequently tho needs and interests of the students and stall
will hav.e to come first."
"We have made no commit
ments other than assurances that

we shall maintain the pool and
roof it if possible," Dr. Mackenzie said.
He pointed out that the roof-
in!? of the pool will present a
serious problem as thc 50-meter

long for normal year 'round operations.
Asked whether an appeal will
be made to the students to help
finance the new pool, Dr. Mackenzie said he hoped it will not

First official signs of the
brewing rebellion among the
rank-and-file applied science
students against their "no lilypond" leadership developed
in the la.-,t Wednesday meeting
of the applied science undergraduate society.
Students a I I e n d i n s> this

and without discussion, "to

Under the surface, Ilii.-. nm-

which the students of applied
science defended themselves
against a freshman attack on
Sept. 2'.).
Al this lime, the officiality

More Money Needed For Higher Education
Fee Increase
Hurrah.
Learning To Think
The faculty of arts is suffering from a
chronic inferiority complex. Artsmen don't
even appear to know that the classic reply to
the traditional criticism "Arts bake no bread''
is "man cannot live by bread alone." Or
that there is an old Chinese proverb to the
effect that if you have a loaf of bread sell
half of it and buy flowers.
A major flaw in our culture is that we
tend to judge everything by the financial returns and lose sight of intrinsic values. The
jibe that an artsman can always get a job in
a pyjama factory if he knows how to pull
strings, is taken too seriously.
One of the functions of a university appears to be the preparation of students to earn
a living. The faculty of arts is not neglecting
that function—preparing students for teaching, law, medicine, theology, journalism, and
other professions which may or may not require further education. A "general education," that is, an arts degree, is valued and
respected in many fields of business.
But there is another important purpose,
sometimes called learning how to think, and
sometimes called civilizing. Perhaps a better
way of phrasing it is developing a sense of
values. If an artsman does anything more
than recopy half-remembered lecture notes
in an examination book, he should learn to
question dogmas and implicit assumptions
wherever they are found.
He should learn to develop his own ideas
based on rationality and tolerance rather
than prejudice. He should refuse to accept
conventional standards of values for the sake
of conforming, but should consider all standards by their worth and strive for improvement.
This is difficult when the standards set
by the faculty appear to approve rote learning rather than cultural development. Nevertheless, there is a good opportunity for this
type of advancement,In the faculty of arts.
If a student studies his courses with a clear
conception of what values he hopes to obtain
from them, he can develop a critical approach
and develop a satisfactory sense of values.
Joe Takes A Wife
Senator Joseph McCarthy must have had
a beautiful honeymoon hugging the front
pages of a continent's newspapers.
Now that McCarthy has finally pronounced his fairy tale of Beria's escape u
hoax, ho may have more time to devote himself to his new and, we understand, beautiful
bride.
All in all it is a typical "American success story." Successful and eligible bachelor-

around?). Unfortunately, McCarthy has added another myth to the rather more ancient
American fairy tales.

Guest Editorial
At the general meeiing of the AMS last
Thursday, a motion proposed by Roy Officer
and Howard Turpin of the Student Christian Movement, recommending that we urge
NFCUS to begin negotiations towards associate membership in IUS, was quickly and
thoroughly quashed on the grounds of being
'impractical' and 'idealistic'.
If anyone is unrealistic, we feel it. is thoso
so violently opposed to the S.C.M. stand.
The most critical issue in the world today is
East-West tension, which feeds upon and
breeds misunderstanding and prejudice. A
primary task of NFCUS, our National student
organization, therefore, is to pursue a policy
such as to lessen, not heighten, this tension.
IUS is at present pursuing a policy of
friendly overtures towards the Western
student; constituency. There are two fallacies
possible in appraising this drastic change of
attitude. It would bo silly to sec it as a pure
expression of warm brotherhood, rather than
as a strategy of world Communism. At the
same time it is equally unrealistic, although
comforting to our egos, to dismiss the IUS
leaders as impersonal Marxist 'units' rather
than as persons, not unlike ourselves, but
with a distinctively different viewpoim. As
human beings, a real desire for reconciliation
cannot, be totally absent from their motivation.
Thus, wc .should think, the NFCUS nlli-
rica as a country of cops and gangsters
(rather more of the gangsters), have now
gained the impression from Senator McCarthy's recent meteoric rise that America is
gripped in a "reign of terror", a concept which
is pregnant with meaning in other parts of
tin,' world.
Even if McCarthy had attained all he
and hi.s supporters claim he has; even if he had
uprooted the last remaining communist in the
U.S., all these acts cannot counterbalance
the harm he has done to the good name of
democracy, liberalism, western liberties and
a host of other cotipenhhse eakhwc v eant F
a host of other concepts which have taken
on a hollow sound to those who have in their
own countries seen the distortions to which
such terms can be subjected.
lude lo IUS in the present situation must be
one of cautious acceptance of the overtures,
fully recognizing their ambiguity. To draw
back through fear of being 'uped' or exploited
for propaganda purposes is an admission of
weakness rather than an intelligent strategy.
Wo cannot sit back, self-righteously, and demand 'demonstration of their good intentions',
any more than we can rush blindly and joyfully into the relationship for the sake of
the lovely fellowship that is offered.
Such demonstration they will not give, in
the face of the sort of attitude that demands
it. Our happy and delusive picture of the
righteous West over against the evil East does
not exist in their minds. We have given them
ample reason to distrust and hate us.
It would seem, therefore, that if Canadian students have any concern for the world
situation and any faith in their own political
competence, they should urge that NFCUS
become an associate member of IUS. This is
no time lo moralize about the undisputably
partisan policy pursued by IUS in the past,
and to refuse to soil our lily-white hands.
The alternative to the suggested personal
contact with and confrontation of the Communist student constituency is to contribute,
by our weak hesitancy, to the growth of
mutual misunderstanding and distrust, raising it ever nearer to the explosive level.
STUDENT CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT
EXECUTIVE,
Unless more money is spent
on higher education during the
next few years the students of
British Columbia will suffer
from lack of adequate school
facilities and lack of first class
teachers Dr. Norman MacKenzie, President of the University of British Columbia declared Sunday night in his annual radio report to the province.
Dr. MacKenzie spoke over a
province-wide network of the
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
The entire question of higher
education in the province will
have to be given careful study
during the next few years if
the University is to adequately
meet the demands which will
be made upon it.
"If our yc%ng people are to
be educated, if our citizens are
to be provided with professional services, if our resources
are to be intelligently exploit*
UTTERS TO THE EDITOR
Propaganda Tooli
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Ken Farris, SCM head and
Mr. Hollands, SCP president,
failed to make UBC students
into fellow travellers of the
communist lUS. Canadian NF
CUS should not be associated
with IUS If they want to preserve the reputation of freedom in Canada and all over
the world. I would like to
congratulate the students and
Council for turning down a request from SCM official to affiliate with communist-run
IUS.
Let our representatives give
NFCUS to understand that
UBC students do not want to
be a propaganda tool for Moscow agents in promoting misery and bloody revolution for
the enslavement of the free
world. It is a fact that IUS
represents, only a small fraction of Iron Countries students,
namely hard-bitten communists of bolshevik calibre who
are so anxious to bait peace-
loving Canadian students for
the cause of red aggression and
slavery.
Does Mr. iioiiands remember
when IUS refused to protest
against the prosecution and
massacre of Czeck students,
who fought so gallantly for
university and academic freedom? UBC students can not
forget hot blood shed by young
students at Prague. . The IUS
refusal mu3t serve as a real
warning to everybody; this is
what IUS wishes to prepare for
the world-students' happiness.
Mr. Hollands :s eager to
know more about the people
and students of Iron Curtain
Countries and according to him
the only way to reach it is by
recognition of IUS. You can be
sure Mr. Hollands that such
sweet information can not be |
achieved through the IUS un-'
less you become an Oatis or n
Volgar.

AMS Not Bourgeois
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The effect of Friday's report-!
ing of my campaign speech is
quite  apparent.
To clarify the issue it should
be stated that I do not promise
to "end an array of bourgiou-
sie, but to prevent it from coming into existence." I said,
"because of student apathy the
danger was quite real." In
view of the fact that my speech
was written out and'in view of
thc fact that I read it, the facts
cannot be questioned.
Furthermore, I turned to
speak specifically to Mr. Feltham and the council informing
them that I was not speaking
of them but considering the
future. Since most of those
present were quite clear on my
position, I cannot understand
how the Press so completely
misunderstood  me.
However, I wish to congratulate Mr. O'Shea, and wish
him much success in his new
office.     — JOHN REDEKOP
Fugitive*
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Several of us recently picked up the Alma Mater Society
Student Pan card complete
with those "Oh no!!!" pictures,
and on receiving same practically decided not to present
them for reduced rates at the
movies (quite a decision you
will agree). Judging from the
comments from those around
us in the line-up at the time,
and later those voiced in the
Westbrook Building the pictures make the average UBC
student look like:
a) a fugitive from a gold fish
bowl;
b> a fugitive;
c) a little one just ready for
first day at school.
Now I fully appreciate the
fact that time is an important
element during registration
and when students reach the
photographic dept. they may
think it is the only element. I
also appreciate that photographers are working under considerable presure, but really,
it seems that the percentage of
good pictures (i.e. good for
something other than laughs)
could have been increased.

APOLOGY
It was reported in the Ubyssey Friday that Radsoc did
not cease their World Series
broadcast until 1:00 p.m. Radsoc was off the air at 12:30;
the Ubyssey regrets any inconvenience caused by last Friday's announcement.
ed and if our various needs are
to be met and our desires satisfied we .will have to continue
to spend considerable sums of
money on this higher education."    .   .
Dr. MacKenzie said that
while the legislature, the government and corporations and
private individuals have been
generous in the past after their
own fashion still in terms of
population and student enrollment less real money is being
tion than was spent in the
spent in B.C. on higher educa-
1920's.
"Nothing is, in my opinion,"
said the UBG president, "more
foolish than to send the ablest
of our young people to be
taught and trained and inspired by the second rate."
Dr. MacKenzie reported that
enrollment at UBC this year
was some 5500 students, two
hundred more than a year ago.
About half of these students
come from more than 200 centres throughout B.C., from all
nine provinces and from some
30 other countries throughout
the world.
Thirteen hundred of the students are women.
Enrollment at the University
is now twice that of pre-war
years, Dr. MacKenzie declared
and by 1960 will reach at least
10,000.
Plans to meet this vastly increased enrollment should be
made now, he said, and it may
not be a complete answer to
establish junior colleges, vocational and agricultural schools,
and decentralize teacher training and higher education.
Experience' in the neighboring states of Washington and
Oregon and California, and in
^ *'years of service
to the university of
british columbia,
its fraternities
and sororities.
THERE'S A REASON
other Canadian provinces, have
indicated that such solutions
would increase the cost of providing higher education and
would create difficulties in
finding sufficient trained personnel to staff such schools.
"Unless the libraries and
laboratories are adequate and
the cultural facilities extensive
proper university training cannot be provided."
Dr. MacKenzie said that the
University of British Columbia
now provides residence for I
about 1200 of the students and \
staff but that only 150 of these j
live in suitable fire-resistant |
buildings.
"The rest are in converted j
army huts which have a very
limited period    of    usefulness
and which are .a real and con-|
stant fire hazard."
"It is neither good policy I
nor good housekeeping to have[
hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment andl
research work in buildings as|
inflammable as these ere."

Reporter Says Bleeders Treat You Good

of blood.   It's a rather anemic
There's nothing to it.
looking sample, but it is dedicated to save the life of
some victim who is no position to be fussv.
Up until now, I've been
kicked out of Red Cross Clinics and the Alcazar owing to
a slight discrepancy between
my acknowledged age and
that inscribed on my birth
certificate.
Time has picked holes in
that excuse. I just turned 18,
and a lot of Home Economics
girls know it. They gave me
the alternative of trotting into the Armouries under my
own steam or being hauled in.
"There's nothing to it," they
scoff. "It only hurts those
who are scared."
That was the trouble. I
was scared. I turn pale at the
sight of ketchup and I'm reduced to blubbering mysteries if any one Waves a hypodermic at me.
But I went to the Armouries.
A nurse welcomed me with
cooing noises of delight and
gave me a coke. She then took
.advantage of my effervescent spirits to prick my finger.
All shrinking violets please
note that it did not hurt. With
the blood from my finger she
made messy patterns on a
white slate, looked dubiously
at the result and "gave, me a
blue slip.
I answered the questions
rattled off by the next nurse.
A beautiful brunette led me
to a nice soft bed, pumped up'
my arm and gave me a piece
of wood to wrestle with. Then
a blond Florence Nightingale
swabbed off my arm, and another brunette pricked it with
something and left me.
After ten minutes, another
nurse took away the blood
bottle, and gave me a swab
of cotton with instructions to
hold it over the wound. I
continued my nap on another
bed. Then I was bandaged up
and evicted from my cot.
I finished off the party with
a coke, or coffee for those •
who have donated before.
Then another nurse decorated
me with a paper blood bottle
and the party was over.
That's all there was to it.
No riddling you with needles,
no faintness   or   other after
effects. Just soft beds, pretty
nurses, an odd prick or two,
cokes and cookies.
The most torturous part of
the whole business was sweating out the no smoking time
limit.
The whole thing was a
cheap price to pay for that
feeling of proud satisfaction
I felt when lt was over.
I think you should go over
to the Armouries sometime
this week.

The Wildcat's came right back
