MacFarlan expressed confidence that the Parliamentary
Forum steering committee would
rule in favor of the LPP.
Said he: "We are sorry for
being short at the last two Mock
Parliaments. We have three
public spokesmen. We will continue to participate in the ses-j
sions." j
MacFarlan recalled the incident last year when thc LPP
formed the government and no
opposition members showed up.
He was referring to the mass
boycott of the LPP 'government's" bill to stop natural resources from being shipped to

There are some things, such as the romance of Princess
Margaret, that every self-respecting newspaper must comment
on. The Grey Cup also falls within  this category.
The trouble is every aspect has already been commented
on, elsewhere. The ticket muddle, the boon to the distilleries,
the ridiculous foofaraw, the game itself, what the players are
going to'eat, the number of notches in Jackie Parker's belt,
the weather, if there is any, and so ad nauseum.
But we, in our inimitable fashion, have made a new and
Startling discovery. The Grey Cup isn't grey. The whole thing
is a hoax. This national disease that afflicts the country every
November isn't necessary. The excitement is for nought. Forty
thousand folk think they will be watching the Grey Cup game
when actually the damn thing isn't even grey. If that's not
typical of the way football is run in Canada we don't know
wHat is. It's like having the Davis Cup donated by Sammy,
or the Rose Bowl festooned with chysanthemums.
When Montreal wins handily tomorrow afternoon they
•re going to be a sorely disappointed team when The Ubyssey
does its national duty and informs them they have won a
copper cup that is turning green with age.
Editors of Bantam Books' New Campus Writing point out
B new trend. The teacher-writer and the writing workshops
•have provided campus writing with "a new stimulus, an evident
professional respectablility." In other words, they think the
university creative writing courses are a good thing.
If the content of New Campus Writing is a direct result of
these university work-shops, as the editors imply, then indeed
they are a good thing. But direct result or no, creative writing
courses, although they will not make writers out of non-writers,
will provide valuable experience to those who have talent but
need training. A close inspection of Dr. Earle Birney's creative
writing course at UBC, and of the material produced in it, will
prove the point.
UBC should have more than just one course and work-shop
in creative writing, we think, and it is gratifying to hear that
members of the English Department are proposing such a
scheme, a program which would lead to an honour's degree
in creative writing.
We hope the university will not be long in instituting
this program.
Strange Generation?
—Graduate Anthropology
(The author, now studying
her* and formally a member ei
Panjab University, India, eon-
tributes the third in a series
of articles on the present student generation.)
I read with interest Carlos
Kruytbosch's and Dean Chant's
stimulating articles on the present student generation. Carlos clearly states the limitations to his generalisations and
thus makes it possible to make
impressionistic statements
about so nebulous a subject as
present student generation.
The views expressed in this
article are alio subject to similar limitations.
Carlos' article was entitled
Strange Generation. Dean
Chant suggested an addition of
a question mark to the title,
and he gave reasons supporting
this suggestion.
I disagree with this suggestion, and,- in fact with Dean
Chant's general approach to the
subject under discussion.
Strangeness Is a relationship
which implies both familiarity
and non-familiarity, knowledge of them or at least have
seme concept of them, however
Another important feature of
strangeness is curiosity, a desire to know. This is merely
to say that strangeness does not
exist in a vacume; it exists
only where there is a desire
to know, on the part of some
one, about something, already
partially known. As a sense
of inadequate knowledge about
his own generation, and an ac
tive curiosity to know more
about it, characterize Carlos'
to the subject, his choice of
the title "Strange Generation"
is fully justifiable. Dean
Chants' objection to the title
is, however, understandable in
view of his general approach.
Dean Chant is not curious to
know, he already knows that
there is little to know. All that
the boys need is a little "pep"
talk; and he proceeds to tell
us "ye are the salt of the
earth." This kind of approach,
however, useful for morale,
does not stimulate enquiry. It
is nice to know from our dean
that we represent progress. But
what is the nature of progress?
Some* of us have a nagging suspicion that we use the term
progress when we mean well
but don't know what we are
talking about.
In another paragraph Dean
Chant givea the impression of
seeking to perpetuate the
myth of an all knowing elder
^generation: "Can • member ef
an older generation notice any
distinctive features of the
younjer generation, perhaps a
few, but as I remarked, nothing ls vary strange to us oldsters anymore." This indicates
a disinclination to look, as well
as an inclination to be satisfied,
with what is already known.
One wonders whether the oldsters really know as much, and
also whether in old age one
loses the strength to be skeptic towards one's own knowledge.
Carlos fears that our "tolerance pending enquiry" may
be reduced to apathy and in
ertia with the decrease in international tension. I suggest
that factors making for his tolerance and curiosity to know
about the other guy are more
diffused. As admirably pointed out by Dean Chant, we are
living through a period of" rapid change. This has all sorts
of consequences; I wish to point
out only one. Change implies to
some extent choice and valuation.
In a situation of change,
sooner or later, questions like
where we are going? what ls
the meaning of what we are
doing? become more and more
important to the individuals
who are busy changing themselves and their environment.
Today we have come to a point
when more and more people,
especially we, the student gen*
eration, are becoming gradually conscious of the inadequacy
of all current standards of value, both relativist le and absolutist ic, to give meaning and
direction to life.
The need for finding more
adequate standards is urgent,
but it is unlikely that we will
find them in the near futuro,
to put it optimistically,
In a situation like this question of how to get along with
the other guy gets a new meaning and added importance.
Hence our tolerance and the
curiosity to know "how the
other guy ticks" is likely to
stay. Our flocking to old fashioned religion or bohemian
circles, it seems to me, is in
part, an attempt to find shortcuts to what appears to be a
long, and perhaps futile search,
for the meaning of life.
Svundinf Seard
Jeff's Lament
Editor,  The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I recently had the pleasure
of spending a few days in the
university hospital. In the room
were a metallurgical engineer,
an architect and a science student. They make a brave picture of university life! The
metallurgical engineer is going
to Chalk River to work on the
problems of metals in the atomic age; the architect is busy
planning homes for the future;
and the science student studies
day and night to learn whatever-one-must-know to do well
in science.
Unfortunately there is something ominously out of focus in
this picture.
The engineer can barely
speak proper English, and can
hardly put: together a lucid
sentence on any topic outside
of Engineering. The architect
spends his spare time listening
to hill-billy music, and hurriedly changes the station when
any "classics" come on. And
the science-man is interested
only in lurid pocket-books, and
the sports broadcasts.
These are not unusual students in any way. They are all
representative of the graduates
turned out from the technolo-
gicul faculties of this, and ev
ery other university. And they
show the growing abyss developing between the technicians
of the world and the "intellectuals" and students of "the humanities."
There is a clash developing
between the paths of the machine age and the needs of humanity. The intensity and
graveness of this clash will be
determined by the gulf between the thinking of the "arts-
man" and the "engineer," both
turned out by the SAME university.
E. H. Erickson has written
about the growing trend to
equate masculinity with hardness, lack of sensuality, and
anti-intellectualism. This theme
is repeated by T. Parsons, in
"Patterns of Agression in the
Western World." He writes how
masculinity is equated with
"badness," because "goodness"
Is associated with feminity,
and how both the women and
men in Germany supported the
nazi growth because of its
"masculinity." Is there any
doubt as to the anti-intellectualism in America today, or
the aggressive patterns of our
engineer "red-shirts" here on
the campus? (Remember the
"brown-shirts" and the "black-
Universities    are    doing    a
grave disservice to the world
by being so compatmentalized
that animosity is possible between technology and the arts.
Unless the "doers' of the world
understand the "dreamers,"
"egg-heads," "fuzzy-minded intellectuals," we shall soon find
ourselves living in a body without a soul, and who can predict
what nightmares may result!
The Massey report will never
be implemented as long as the
"do-ers" are not taught to appreciate the non-material problems of the world, and the
teaching must begin at the university. Give all students lectures such as "Problems of the
technician in the modern
world," "Compulsive masculinity and anti-intellectualism,"
"Materialism; to What End?"
and many more such lectures!
These are important to technician and social prober alike.
When so much potential power
for good is in their hands it is
criminal to have technicians as
politically unsophisticated, socially immature, narrow and
provincial as is the average
non-Arts graduate.
I do not mean to sing the
praises of an Arts course. But
please can't we have a bit more
rapport between ">arts"-type
students and "engineer"-type

From Manchester Guardian'
Geneva Conference
Failed All the Way
THE GENEVA CONFERENCE is finished. It was barren and disapointing. It leaves
Europe divided, the armaments
Tace continuing, and the barriers to free movement of
ideas and people almost as
high as before.
Although it was never
likely to have achieved a general settlement, it could have
made a start. It could have
begun to give substance to the
so-called "spirit of Geneva"
created by the meeting at midsummer. It could have agreed
on steps towards the reunion
of Germany through free elections, on a limitation of troops
in Europe, and on the ending
of evil practices such as the
jamming of broadcasts. It has
failed at every point.
THE BLAME lies largely,
although not wholly, with the
Soviet Government. Mr. Molotov has rejected in the plainest fashion any approach to
free elections in Germany at
He has proposed instead
an "All-German Council" in
which the East German Com-
•fnunists would have at least a
right of veto and perhaps
also an opportunity to prepare
to seize power throughout
Germany. He has continued to
insist on the dismantling of
N.A.T.O. as an essential condition of agreement, with a
concession only to the extent
of allowing that N.A.T.O.
might continue for a temporary period of two or three
been evasive, although not
much more so than the West
ern Ministers. He has declined
to state precisely what rights
of international inspection his
Government would allow,
while the Western Ministers
have never answered his valid
objections to their inspection
plans. This has been one of
the weakest parts in the Western approach, but in practice
both sides know that inspection now could never be effective.
On the improvement of contacts between East and West
Mr. Molotov has been wholly
unhelpful, and he will not
even permit the general distribution of foreign books, newspapers, and periodicals in the
Soviet Union. In short, he has
openly prevented progress on
almost every point at Geneva.
THIS IS WHAT the Western
Ministers expected. They may
have hoped for a lowering of
Russia's cultural barriers, but
on Germany and disarmament,
they reckoned that Mr. Molotov would be intransigent.
They have been proved right
THE- EVIDENCE is strongly
-that no Western offer—short
of a suicidal agreement to dis-
mantel N.A.T.O. or of an unprincipled sacrifice of free
elections in Germany—would
have led to a settlement. Mr.
Molotov has been astonishingly plain about his terms,
which  he  must  have  known
to stand beyond any chance
of acceptance.
But does that altogether-
excuse the clumsiness and lack
of candour on the Western
side? The security proposals
put forward by the West were
farcical. According to Mr.
Macmillan and Mr. Dulles,
they were to reassure Russia
against the possibility of attack by a rearmed Germany.
But they contained only an
empty promise to "take appropriate action" and to seek help
through the United Nations in
the event of aggression. They
jettisoned Sir Anthony Eden's
former proposal for a demilitarized zone based on the present divinding line in Europe,
and instead they asked for a
thinnig-out of troops from a
United Germany's eastern frontier. In other words, the Russians were asked to leave
Eastern Germany and much
of Poland, while our troops
were to stay where they now
Western evasions on disarmament—and the pretence that
we would allow unlimited
rights of inspection in our own
countries, which we would
not. As moves in a diplomatic
game these may have been
justified. But they were too
patently insincere and they
have left a bad taste.
What of the future? There
is to be no agreed disarmament, and each side will continue to make its own hydrogen bombs. Since the upsurge
of hope in the summer the
hydrogen bomb has almost
disappeared from public discussion, as if delicacy forbade
any mention Of it. But its
manufacture continues in Russia and the United States, and
before long Britain may be
ready for more extensive testing of its hydrogen weapons
or their components.
The ugly business of preparing weapons which can
destroy the world, or large
parts of it, goes on,   There is

nothing to be'gained by shutting our eyes to the fact.
must keep in mind that without these weapons peace
would be still more insecure
•—and that unless we are firmly determined to use them in
an extreme emergency they
have no value. To depend for
safety on these weapons is
disagreeable, but there is no
practicable alternative. That
is the more evident after tht
failure at Geneva.
But if the bomb is brought
back into prominence by the
failure, so is the need for the
Western Powers to decide
whether they will rely almost
wholly on the bomb alone for
defence. If not, are their
ordinary forces adequate? And
should they not, for reasons
both moral and practical, define the conditions under
which they would use nuclear
weapons? Should they not renounce the use of hydrogen
bombs against cities except as
a last resort?
The study of these questions
is urgent. So also, as another
consequence of Geneva, is
recognition of the fact that
Western Germany must now
enjoy independence of diplomatic action. The Western
Ministers in negotiation with
Mr. Molotov have failed to reunite Germany. That is not
mainly their fault, but the
people and Government of
Western Germany may ask increasingly whether they, too,
should not try their hand in
direct negotiation with Moscow.
TO REFU3E them that right
would be to raise needless resentment; they will learn
quickly enough, if they have
not done so already, the difficulty of securing reasonable
terms from Russia.
New Transmitter May
Put UBC On the Air
University Radio and Television Society may get a 250*
watt radio transmitter within a year, enabling'it to reach a
downtown audience every day, Radsoc officials said today.
Supporters of the scheme hope
the transmitter, which costs $25,-
000, could be paid for by the
AMS treasurer Geoff Conway
is reportedly in. favor of the
expenditure, as are many other
councillors, but the move would
have to be approved by a general meeting of the whole student body before the expenditure could be made.
Failing student approval, the
Board of Governors will be asked to finance the transmitter.
"And possibly, a jointly-financed scheme could be worked
out," Mendel Miller, Radsoc
Chief Engineer, said.
If the transmitter is bought,
CBC approval must be secured
before Radsoc can begin broadcasting downtown.
Radsoc officials say there
should be no difficulty in securing a CBC Charter, since the
station would be of an educational nature, and would not compete commercially with downtown stations.
Radsoc would be responsible
for one hour of broadcasting per
day, and the University Extension Department, and various
campus clubs would take care of
the rest.
Radsoc will present a brief advocating purchase ef the transmitter to the Beard of Governors
at their next meeting.

UBC Students See Moderns
Religious  Themes
Major Contribution
To History of Art
Graduate Sociology
(The author, a gradual* of
Mexico City University and a
graduate student in sociology
here, has served as an art
critic on several Mexican publications, and is a painter in
his own right.)
The students of UBC had
the other week an excellent
opportunity to observe some
interesting things about the
modern development of one
of the artistic expressions
which has given perhaps one
of the major contributions to
the History of Art. That is to
say, religious painting.
As it is well known, religious
themes were traditionally the
main subject of Art since the
beginning of the Christian Era
until the culmination of the
Barroque Style, early 18 Century. After this epoch, sacred
figures, biblic scenes and all
sorts of pious motives almost
disappeared from the artists'
Religious Art went into a
long period of decline. All
branches of art, sculpture,
painting, music, architecture
were directed toward wordly
purposes. Misticism and wor-
shop were no longer artistic
motivation. The artist was an
echo of the social and economic transformations of a
world engaged not in the
wherefore of existence, but in
its mastery. The artist came
to look upon the earth with
new eyes and therefore developed through the centuries
new movements and styles
with a context every time farther away from religion.
Twentieth Century Art in
North America and Europe is
characterized by the strong
influence   of   the   School   of
Paris, expressionism, fauvism,
cubism, futurism, and so on.
This influence is altogether
under the inaccurate common
denomination of abstractionism, which, by large, is typified by a tendency to recreate
meaningless forms, planes and
volumes, lines and dots over
bidimentional space, and by
using color in a more or less
arbitrary way, paying bare
attention to the verisimiltude
of the subject matter represented and surely not enough
to the social reality of our
It is within this modern current that the best attempts to
renew religious painting has
been made. George Roault, a
French painter, is the best
known example.
It might sound strange to
meet modernism in a genre
which is peculiarly conservative, an artistic genre whose
chief preoccupation has been
faithfulness to the patterns of
beauty and likeness traditionally accepted for the purpose
of the Christian iconography.
However, this is the case
of a collection of paintings
that were exhibited in the
Art Gallery of UBC. The
author of the works displayed,
most unusually, is a Nun, the
Sister Mary Corita, I.H.M. of
Los Angeles, Cal. Graduated
in Art at the University of
Southern California in 1951.

professor of Art at the Immaculate Heart College of Los

style of the primitive Christian Churches of Roma and
the Bizantian mosaic.
The use of such a traditional
theme added to the modern

Communal   House
Thrives On Campus
Float Needs
Eighteen UBC students who
hang their hats at 4062 West
Eighth Avenue are living in
a manner that would warm
the cockles of Karl Marx'
The students are partners in
the University Co-operative
House, an organization that
has developed the art of communal living to a near-subversive degree.
The University Co-operative House, is a place where
everything is communal property, from 4he well-used sofas
to the equally well-used bath
towels. Every communist doctrine except "free love" comes
with the membership card.
The house was founded during World War II, when the
need a place with a more
homey atmosphere than Acadia and Forts camp's became
At first the whole system
bubbled, and within a matter
of two years there were four
such branches of the co-operative union within the city. But
the law of supply and demand
necessitated the closure of
three locations.
So now there is one.
Occasionally, however,
there are interruptions. Coopers still remember the night
last year when one of thc
roomers,     apparently    warm
with wine, carried his motorcycle into the front room, and
started up the motor.
Studerjts pay $10 in shares
at the beginning of the year,
which is returned to them at
the end of the term. Monthly
room anod board totals $46.50,
which undercuts Fort and
Acadia Camps by a little less
than ten dollars.
The expenses are kept that
• low because all students help
out in the daily chores.
Each night from seven to
10 p.m. is set aside as a "quiet"
period, for students to study,
or read or play cards—anything that isn't noisy.
Saturday, studies are theoretically abandoned, for what
is classified as "open house."
Sundays, an additional quiet
period of three hours is added
in the afternoon.
The house is run by a Board
of Governors, headed by Dr.
Schemilt, dean of the faculty

This column has lately been
deluged with enquiries from
worried students asking, "How
can I get through my Christ*
mat exams?"
"How can I gat through my
Christmas exams?" ihey ask,
their faces thin and drawn.
Happily, the answer is
simple, and can be summed
up in fiva simple rules:
(1) Think positively.
(2) Eat    plenty    of    fried
(3) Avoid      Technocracy
(4) Don't worry  about  Social Credit.
(5) Buy a tie at the Tie Bar.
"But   how/'   tho   worried
students ask, "How can those
seemingly meaningless rules
possibly help mo get through
my Christmas exams?"
' Let us examine tho rules
on* by ont:
(1) is very straightforward;
just Iftep saying over and
over to yourself, "I am going
to pass at Christmas, I am
going to pass at Christmas."
This is called positive thinking, and it got Norman Vincent Pealo through Divinity
(2) is straightforward too.
If yon oat enough fried
prawns, you won't care whether you pass your exams or
(3) and (4) are easy enough
lo understand; the more time
you spend at technocracy
meetings or worrying about
Social Credit, the less time
you have to eat fried prawns.
(5) is the most important of
all. so we saved it for the last.
When you appear at a lecture
wearing one of the Tie Bar's
discreet ties the effect will be
Your professor, enchanted
by the academicaly impeccable colours, and the scholas-
iically slim cut of your Tie
Bar tie, will immediately pass
you. and offer you a job
marking his Christmas exams
You will probably decline,
and accept instead a position
as head of the Vancouver
Stock Exchange. Your worries will be over.
Of course, if you wear a
turtle-neck sweater, you can
forgot about the formula, and
try studying.
As a matter of fact, if you
insist on wearing a turtle-

UBC Chiefs, who have all season been in the shadow of the
crack Varsity squad, have the
soccer scene all to themselves
this week-end.
UBC take on Sunset Community Centre in their Fourth Division Mainland league game at
Sunset Park. Game time will be
2 p.m.
Chiefs have had only limited
success this year, but chances of
posting a win on Sunday are
bright. Sunset is one of the
weakest teams in the Fourth
Division, and is not expected to
provide much opposition.

front of goalie John Isberg. Ex-
Victoria College player Ernie
Pryce will start his first game

fullback. Centre half Harry

Prof.   Finds   Haven
From   World's   Woes
Earle Birney, UBC English professor, has discovered the
real Mexico, but without going to Acapulco.
Free Fun
The final dramatic effort on
the campus before Christmas
will be staged by the UBC .Players Club Tuesday noon in an
animated reading of Earle Birney's "Damnation of Vancouver."
In the November 12th issue
of Saturday Night, Birney describes his visit to Manzanillo, a
little town 500 miles from Mexico City, as a haven for "people
who want to get away from
people like me."
Although admitting that "coming back to Brockville or Calgary without Acapulco hotel
labels on the baggage is as damaging to the social reputation
as to slink back from Italy
without pasted evidence of having loafed on Capri," he says he
got much closer to the real Mex-

"It's a place so friendly and

of other people like me, that
I'm a fool to talk about it." I
hate to insult Manzanillo by an
attempt to describe it."
"I see that I can't tell you
what Manzanillo is like either,"
he concludes, after describing

/Thursday, the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra under
the direction of Irwin Hoffman, presented a program ot
music from Bach to Bartok,
including Haydn, Humper-
dinck. Ravel and Strauss.
The popular Hansel and
Gretel Overture by Humper-
dlnck, the first on the program, was very sensitively
treated contrapuntally, and
was a thoroughly charming
The Symphony in G Major,
No. 88, by Haydn, was the
first large work played, and
was a healthy, lively interpretation, although a trifle disorderly in spots. Some of the
openings were not too precisely co-ordinated. The rhythm of the piece was emphasized, especially in the third
movement where heavy and
metre contrasted delightfully.
The Bach Passacaglia and
Fugue in C Minor was the
next major work heard, difficult to perform in the auditorium because of the magnitude of the composition. The
'ground bass" tended to dominate over the rest of the or-
chestra, probably due to the
accoustics of the hall. The
sudden contrast of the quiet
statement of the Fugue was
remarkable, after the climax
of the Passacaglia.
After the intermission, Irwin Hoffman returned to conduct Hungarian Song and
Dances, by Bela Bartok, a
conservative and rather innocuous example of this controversial composer's works.
The lilting, rhythmic melodies
are typical of Bartok's peasant dances.
The langour and flowing
smoothness of Ravel's Pavane
Pour Une Infante Dciunte pervaded the auditorium and the
orchestra was applauded by
enchanted students.
The final work on the program was Don Juan, by Richard Strauss. This dramatic,
emotional piece of music is a
symphonic poem depicting the
wanderings and final tragedy
of the immortal Don Juan.
The audience enthusiastically applauded  the  orchestra
and Mr. Hoffman returned to
present an encore, the Sleeping Beauty Waltz of Tchal-
On the whole, the symphony
concert was an improvement
over last year's, both in program content and in location,
and the students showed their
appreciation and enthusiasm
by responding with complete
attention and copious applause.
