'Arms are suicide"— Pearson
Middle  powers  must
restrain war mongers
By DEREK ALLEN
Middle powers should lead the United Nations in a complete revolution in thinking about international politics.
"This is our revolution for survival in 1961," Lester B.
Pearson told 2500 people in UBC's Armory Thursday noon.
"This   is   our   revolution
THIS tS NOT a modern version of Hitler's propaganda film but judging from the number of
banners in front of Brock Hall something must be happening. Because 'Tween Classes Notices
missed the deadline, we thought we could help some of the Clubs get iheir notices in -.his
way.
Supreme Moot Court grants
appeal in morality charges
By DEREK ALLEN
The Supreme Moot Court of
UBC sat in ribald session Wednesday night and granted the
appeal of a taxi driver who had
been charged iwith using his
cab for immoral purposes.
"The charge did not specify
an immoral: purpose but refer-
j red to a statute which says that
, a licence can be suspended when
the police chief is convinced
that a driver is unfit, "by reason
of his use of or dealing in intoxicants or narcotic drugs, or
for any other reason," to drive
a cab.
POLICE LAWYERS
Lawyers acting for the pdlice
chief submitted that carrying a
prostitute for the purpose of
selling her wares was similar to
'the selling of a bootlegger's or
drug-pusher's wares and the
suspension of the licence should
stand.
Several exchanges took place
between the justices and the two
. lawyers   for   the   police   chief,
third year law students Anne
Givens and Joseph Oman, as
the bench tried to find out what
immoral purposes were referred to. .   ,
Talk of prostitution in taxi
cabs and transportation of call
girls added a tone of levity to
an otherwise dry presentation
of precedents and references to
case law.
CHIEF JUSTICE
The five judges, headed by
the Chief Justice of British Columbia, the Honorable A. C.
DeBrisay, decided for the appellant as represented by third
year law students Larry Goulet
and Lawrence Beadle.
Also on the bench were Mr.
Justice A. M. Manson of t h e
Supreme Court of B.C., A. J.
Cowan, Queens Counsel, treasurer of the Law Society of B.C.,
L.St.M. DuMoulin, Q.C., vice-
president for B.C. of the Canadian Bar Association, and Professor R. F. V. Heuston, visiting UBC's Law Faculty from
Oxford.
They decided that the senior
lawyer, for the cab driver, Larry Goulet, had presented the
best case of the evening and
awarded him a prize donated by
a late member of the B.C. Bar
Association.
GOOD QUALITY
The judges commended all
the participants on the quality
of their presentations.
Mr. Cowan, on behalf of the
Bar Association, said that lawyers graduating from UBC compared well with those from anywhere in the world and said
that in his travels he had found
no better law school than the
one at UBC.
Mr. Justice Manson commented in the course of the presentation that legislatures and lawmaking bodies should be more
careful when drafting legislation to make sure that there
was right of appeal in cases such
as the one that came before the
moot court.
PEARSON SAYS:
U.S. will  work harder for  UN
By  IAN  BROWN
Ubyssey   Associate   Editor
Liberal leader Lester B.
Pearson believes the new
United States administration
will take a more active part
in the United Nations than
did its predecessor.
"Kennedy has appointed
several top men to his U.N.
delegation, including Adlai
Stevenson," the bow-tied former president of the U.N. assembly told The Ubyssey.
"It appears the new administration will come out even
stronger for the U.N. than it
is now."
The 1956 Nobel prize-winning Pearson touched on numerous subjects in an interview in the social suite of the
Faculty club.
Summit: President Kennedy probably will not press
for a summit conference immediately because he knows
a summit meeting requires
much preparation. Kennedy
knows that summit conferences build up great hopes
among the people of the world
that may not be fulfilled.
Canadian defense: Canada
should scrap the Bomarc missile and CF-100 and replace
them with armed interceptors — but without nuclear
arms. The Avro Arrow would
have been ideal for the job,
he said.
A country like Canada can't
afford all-round defence, like
a power such as the U.S. must
have.
Education: A Liberal administration in Ottawa would
increase government spending on scholarships with the
idea that eventually university education should be free
for all students who can meet
certain academic requirements.
for
survival in 1961," Lester B.
Pearson told 2,500 people in
UBC's Armory Thursday noon.
"We must develop some new
kind of force to restrain those
who would break the peace. If
nuclear and national arms and,
by inference, all arms are to be
ruled out, because their use
leads to suicide, we must find
something else," he said.
Pearson asked if we have
"the imagination, patience and
determination," to bring such
a revolution about. "Is it possible in any event?" he added.
It means developing, "with
cool realism and hardheaded
practicality, a new kind of
force, moral and political force,
divorced from military force,"
he said. •
LIBERAL LEADER
The Liberal leader said we
must accept the disappearance
of a world in which peace ■ was
maintained and disputes were
settled, by a system of balance
of power within a dominant
Europe.
"I do not either idealize or
condemn the earlier system. It
was a stage in historical development, pending the arrival of
the democratic man and the
Marxist Mass," he said.
"The present bi-polarization
of the world is also a stage. It
will pass, as indeed it is already
beginning to pass at the U.N.
I hope our planet will not pass
with it."
Pearson saw in China a threat
that is watched with as much
anxiety in Moscow as Washington, a factor which might ultimately break up the Communist
bloc.
COLD WAR
He stated that in any settlement of Cold War issues, "we
should not expect either goodwill or good faith; only self-interest. Nor is the area of this
common interest at present very
wide. Fortunately, however, it
does include a recognition of the
desirability of avoiding all-out
all-destroying nuclear war."
Pearson saw in Africa a dangerous development that could
put in jeopardy the peace-preserving functions of the U.N.
"The secretary-general and
his associates are playing a heroic and entirely selfless part
in trying to prevent further deterioration of the situation; but
agains   discouraging  odds.
They cannot be held responsible for any failure brought
about by the inability or the refusal of the major powers—ahd
, some not. major—to give them
the backing and support they
deserve."
He said that small diplomatic
successes are better than big international failures as steps to
world order, at the U.N. or any
place else, adding: "That is one
of the arguments against premature summit conferences."
"The best way., of strenghthen-
ing   the   United ^Nations   is   by
j asking it to do things of which

A reply to the guest editorial appearing in The Ubyssey
Tuesday, January 31, 1961:
The president of the CCF. Club has gone to considerable
length in order to refute and castigate the sound 'conservative"
.stand taken by The Manitoban on the question of disarmament
particularly.
It appears Mr. Piket's ardor has been stirred to the quick
and he has hastily mounted his white charger in a noble effort
to defend "idealism" as allegedly characterized by the Unilateral Disarmament Movement. The only trouble is that Mr.
Piket, as is characteristic of so many who share his political
philosophy, has chosen to flagrantly distort the position taken
by these whose views seem counter to his own. Again, like so
. many of his socialist.< compatriots, he-chooses as a matter of
convenience to, ignore the hard realities and exigencies of international, djplqjnasy.
Surely.Mr>- Piket is not so, naive as to honestly believe that
The Manitoban, is .categorically and irrevocably opposed to
nuclear, .disarmament. Certainly anyone who has any semblance
of a moral, conscience shades his concern over the possibility of
a world iwide^nuelearholocaust. No one would disagree that
nuclear*disarpuiment:is imperative if humanity is to be pre-
Kservedfromtotal^extinction. However, the question to be considered is Jiotthe-igoal but the means. How best can a scheme
of disarmament with rigid (Controls be implemented so as to be

of any weakness,shown the. West. The wily gentlemen who
control the Communist world from Moscow and Peiping are
hacdl^ likely to join with us in such a fine evangelical plan
-of action.
As Sir Winston Churchill so effectively stated, "we must
aim to parley." Let common sense and sanity prevail.
Unilateral, disarmament can only have the ultimate effect
of tempting the Soviet Union to destroy our rich heritage of
a-perianal freedom: and the rule of law. We can oniy achieve
effective; disarmament by a patient step by step process—with
a foolproof system of controls the prime requisite.

Letters to the Editor
Allen Challenged
The Editor,
Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Derek Allen "Jabberwocky,"
Ubyssey, Jan. 31st, said: "At
least three people have submitted nomination papers for president . . , One of the three . . .
is representing a certain al:
phabetic group that has ambitions but not much in the way
of candidates, according to the
people who have refused to
run for them."
This can only refer to N.B.C.
candidates.
I would like to challenge
Mr. Allen to name these people "who have refused to run
for them."
To t h e best of my knowledge, and I am chairman of
N.B.C, no one has refused to
run after having, been specifically asked by our group.
We are not afraid of the
truth. Lies and snide smears
must, however, be dealt with
immediately.
Your move, Mr. Allen.
KEN HODKINSON,
Chairman, New
Blood on Council.
'Adam's Bellybutton'
The Editor,
Ubyssey.
„ JDear Sir:
\   In the 1920's in Indiana, hor-
/r i f i e d education authorities
discovered that a textbook in
use in the high schools contained a picture of Adam and
Eve, each supporting a belly
button. This, the harassed
authorities decided,, was an in-
siduous attempt to preach evo-
luion, calculated to undermine
the morality of youth and destroy their belief in God. The
book was banned.
A similar type of thinking
has now appeared at UBC.
Surely the university is the
one place where all issues
should be discussed freely and
openly.
The question is not chastity
or licence but freedom of debate and intellectual inquiry.
This university has seen in the
.p^st debates on everything
from Communism to Social
Credit, from, the abolition of
the monarchy to the abolition
of professors. So why the howl
over chastity? Can it be that
some of the remarks struck
home? Can it be that some of
the students are not too sure
of their own beliefs?
I especially deprecate the
attacks on the two women debaters. If there were any remarks that might be considered in bad taste, they came
from the male debaters.
Perhaps these attacks spring
from a survival of that quaint
belief that while unmarried
women must be virginal in
word and deed, male virtue is
an error to be rectified as soon
as possible.
Yours  faithfully,
DEREK FRASER,
Law I.
SERENDIPITY
On Chivalry
The Editor,
Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Yah! Chivalry is not dead!
Just to expound further—Can
you imagine four female students stranded on campus with
a flat tire at the night rush
hour with rain and darkness
coming on and with no idea
how the jack worked or how
the spare tire was removed?
If you can, then it's even harder to imagine; someone who is
also on the way home stopping
to help. But it happened!—so
thanks,  Murray!
FOUR RESCUED
DAMSELS.
War?  —  never?
By   JACK   ORNSTEIN
It is highly improbable that
there will be a world-wide nuclear war.
• A widespread nuclear war
would destroy most of the 'civilized' world, and with it, the
machines with which weapons
are  made.
• Should this happen, it
could be years, perhaps decades
or centuries, before man could
attain the degree of proficiency with which he can now
destroy an enemy.
• Man is not a patient animal. He wants always to be
well-equipped in order to protect his belongings or state.
Should there be a total war
and if anyone survives, he will
have to wait a long time be--
fore he   can  again   engage  in
combat.
• Man must always have
wars. He has little else to do
that is as exciting or as natural.
Anyone denying this is blind
to history. Given man as he is
(and how else are we to take
him—i.e. ourselves?), there
will always be wars.
'■• Nuclear weapons will soon
be banned. Not only couldthey
cause a temporary and unwanted halt in the series of wars
but also they would take all
the fun out of a war.
One likes to see one's enemy
dying and nuclear weapons
make this almost impossible.
• 'Think ... of the enthusiasm of a people at the outbreak of a war!" (Bergson).
The average fellow has little
to really excite him. Thinks of
the   patriotism   a    good    war
arouses. We are all proud to
answer the call to arms. "Now
is the chance to really achieve
something ... to do something
that a war brings out in man—
the passion to defend, to
avenge and to kill (which is
the most exciting thing one
do).
Given all these facts, we can
say that there will be no nuclear war because it would spoil
man's fun. It would actually be
against human nature! So let
there be no moaning at the
bar. From time immemorial
man has waged wars. And no
Oiarnn nuclear war; is going to
stop us now!        .-,    ;','-. :riday, February. 3, 1961

Mary Bark worth
Mary Barkworth will bring
to the office of president an
unprejudiced mind and an
ability to work with others.
She has new ideas of how to
make the new government
work for the students which
seem sound to me, and I am
sure will appeal to all of you.
She has spent many years
as an individual in the student
body as a whole and does not
represent any small groups or
specific types of students.
Her first class average shows
that  she has intelligence  and
ability to govern the students
without loss to her studies.

Phil Brown
This year has seen a radical
■change in the A.M.S. constitution. N.B.C. has coupled this
"with another: the inauguration
of party politics into campus
affairs and an end to "popularity poll" elections.
A ten-point programme is being put forward and a fine
team of candidates is running,
under N.B.C, to implement
this programme.
Heading this team is Phil
Brown, running for A.M.S.
president. A 4th year Arts student, going into 5th Year Education, Phil is active in the
Players Club, the Classics Club
and the Sailing Club. He is a
:phi Kappa Pi.

Alan Cornwall is the man
perfectly suited to implement

Council.
In his five years on the campus, Al has had much experience in the old form of government, having most recently
served as First Member of the
Students' Council and Chairman of the Homecoming Week
festivities.
Not pushed
— he jumped
Library Commissionaire A.
Wuerch has asked The Ubyssey
to make known the fact he was
not pushed into the lily pond
by the engineers during Wednesday's Aggie-Engineer  fracas.
"I stepped in," he said. "When
taking a backward step, I missed my footing and stepped in.
I wasn't pushed." Wuerch had
taken hold of the victimized
Aggie's wrist to prevent the
dunking when the incident occurred.
Wuerch holds no grudge
against the Engineers. "I have
a sense of humor and I like to
swim," he stated. "Fifteen engineers have come over and
asked me if I want an apology."
But he feels that throwing
people in the pond is a dangerous practice. "It is too shallow,
only one foot deep," he warned.
Hearing a rumor that someone might be thrown in yesterday, Wuerch quickly took precautions. He drained the pool.
In addition, he is certain to
be most receptive to the views
of the Undergraduate Society
Presidents on the new Coun-.
cil, having been President of
Agriculture during the 1959J60
term.
I believe that Alan Cornwall
combines the experience and
the initiative to guide the AMS
through the difficult period of
re-adjustment ahead.
I urge you to elect him President.

Western Ontario
shakes up council
By  GEOFF  STEVENS
Gazette News Editor
LONDON (CUP)—The entire
ministerial structure of the University of Western Ontario
Council Was abolished. In its
paace~"tb«L.USC adopted the new
structure presented in a report
of the Structural Revision Tk>m-
mittee. The new setup is essen-'
tially that proposed by Mike
Vaughan in December.
At that time the committee
v/as formed to consider Vaugh-
ah's plan, and decide upon the
best way to streamline the Council.
The president, vice-president,
and secretary are unaffected by
the changes. The minister of finance becomes the finance commissioner. He must be in his
final year.
The minister of publications
will be replaced by a publications commission with the publications commissioner as chairman. Other members of the com-
mission will be a deputy commissioner of publications and
finance  commissioner.
The minister of internal affairs will become the internal
affairs commissioner.
The portfolio of the minister
of external affairs is replaced
by an external affairs commission. Members are an external
affairs commissioner and two
deputy commissioners of external affairs.
The director of cultural affairs
will be replaced by a cultural
affairs commission, under the
chairmanship of a cultural affairs commissioner. Two deputy
commissioners will round out
the commission.
Much discussion centered

Undergraduate Societies Committee will still be a functional
body under the new AMS constitution, USC president Chris
Davies said Thursday.
Davies said Thursday that although the group's constitution
will have to be changed, USC
will still have several useful
purposes.
The president of the individual society will no longer be
the USC representative, and
meetings will probably be held
iwice a month instead of once
a week, he said.
Under the new constitution
each Undergraduate Society will
choose its USC representative
from its own executive.
The USC president will not
in future be chosen by campus-
wide elections, but will: be elected by USC itself from either its
incoming or outgoing members,
Davies said.
He   said  USC  should  handle
questions which affect only one
Undergraduate Society, because
j Students    Council    should    not
have to discuss such maters.
USC will continue to oversee
charity drives, elections and the
Student   Discipline   Committee,
and other uses will probably be
found for the body, Davies said.
| One such purpose might be the
i formation   of   a   committee   for
' the   amendment   of   Undergrad-
, uate Society constitutions.

?©n FrMay,January 20, The
Arts and Science Undergraduate
Society was split into two bodies; The division, together with
a proposed Constitution for the
new Seiencfr.Undergraduate Society,1 anda revamped Arts Con-
stituJfenj was approved shortly
thereafter by the Undergraduate Societies Committee, and is
now before the Student's Council.
HISTORY OF; DIVIDE
The project of dividing the
Society originated several years
ago, when the phenomenal
growth of the Faculty made it
evident that representation
could not be. properly executed
by one executive body.
The recent alteration of the
A.M.S. system only added incentive to the completion of a
project that would give Science-
men, a voice in student affairs,
and opportunity they have lacked under the. • Arts^centred and
dominate Executives and Councils of the past.
NEW CONSTITUTION
Both the:amendments to the
previous A;S.U.S, Constitution
(which will remain for Arts use)
.and the proposed Science Constitution were drawn up with
flexibility as their aim. The latter, for the new Science Undergraduate Society, is a very basic
document, with many gaps to be
"filled in" by the Sciencemen
in accordance with their particular needs.
Nominations for both Science
and Arts executive will be received at the A.S.U.S. Office
between February 13 and February 20.

PRESIDENT SAYS:
Apathetic Alis
Getting Ott
After years of campus fame as the heart of apathy, the
heterogeneous hundreds known as the Arts and Science Undergrad Society have finally aroused themselves.
This year's activities began with an unheard of accomplishment—the election of the 50-member Arts and Science Council.
Through the Council and its committees, Men's Volleyball,
Bowling, and Basketball teams and several women's sports teams
have teen organized. The "Action Committee" is working on
several briefs, including one on compulsory phys. ed, and has
taken on such services to the A.M.S. as bi-weekly clearing of all
the campus bulletin boards.
REVISIONS START
The Revisions Committee has prepared two new draft constitutions for proposed separate undergrad societies of Arts and
Science. It is hoped that these more compact organizations will
arouse more interest and participation by the undergraduates.
Most oi the Council's energy and time has gone into the "Big
Event" ot the year for Arts and Science students—and we hope
for all students. This event will be the "Festival of the Contemporary Arts" presented by the A.S.U.S. Fine Arts Department and
Special Events and running Feb. 6th to 11th.
Festival Week is climaxed by a Valentine's Danee-, the "Sweet-
hearj Serenade."
The A.S.U.S. is confident that with your interest and support
the Festival will be successful, and will become an annual event
on this campus. Mac Brown

At the subway station. ;
In rapid decay
Huge chunks of his body

THE       UBYSSEY
Friday, February
16    with  Calder and  Rousseau
As an introduction to Festival Week, five short films
showing various aspects of the
Arts, will be shown in Bu. 100
at 12.30 on Monday.
"Grass" communicates the
genuine delight in the crea-
tiveness of man's hands as contrasted with the uniformity of
machines. The approach is
light and humorous, the quality (filmic) superb. The film
has won awards in every international event in which it has
been entered.
Beat,   Square   and   Cool
"Le Douanier Rousseau" is a
lively account of the work of
the celebrated "primitive"
painter, Henry Rousseau,
whose work and lively imagination created an exotic world
-where foliage, flowers, and
beasts of prey exist with man
in a profound and mysterious
understanding.
"Music for Children", is a
film in which Carl Orff, German composer and music professor illustrates his novel
technique of teaching music to
children by taking advantage
of their natural interests in
rhythm and sound.
'Winter Garden" is the
poem of David Gaxoigne, narrated by Michael Redgrave against a background of original
paintings by Barbara Jones.
"Work of Calder" is a poetic,
almost abstract, interpretation
of the artist's work. This film
will also be shown on Tuesday
in conjunction with an architectural lecture.
On Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 3.30
in the Auditorium, UBC presents "The Curious World of
Mr. Wonderbird". This film
is produced by Andre Sarrut
and Anatole de Grunwald.
Screenplay and original story
are by Jacques Prevert and the
film is entirely animated with
voices (in English) supplied by
Peter Ustinov, Clare Bloom,
Max Adrian and Denholm Elliot.
Pervert's story is on the surface a fantasy: the crutl King
Ferdinand of Updownia falls
in love with the portrait of a
shepherdess come to life. The
girl flees with a chimneysweep and they are pursued by
the King's secret police, but
are aided by Mr. Wonderbird
with his slogan of "Leave it to
me!" However, into this fantasy are woven some subtle
and pointed political barbs at
dictatorships, police states,
slave labour and underground
cities.
Animation ana color are of
top quality with a great deal
of originality in the character
and set designs.
Cinema 16 presents in Bu.
106 on Thursday, Feb. 9, at
12:30, "Beat, Square and Cool,"
a film program devoted to recent advances in independent
film creation in the USA.
All the films on the program
, have been produced by private
individuals.     They  are   intensely   personal   works   ranging
from     non-objective     abstractions to experiments with dramatized    documentary techni-.
ques, and to the "avant garde."

in films on Thursday, Feb. 9,
at 8 p.m. in Bu. 106.
In his talk, Mr. Broughton
will discuss his own work in
films, and how these films
grew out of the whole experimental film movement in the
States. He will illustrate his
ideas on artistic creation in
film, with some examples from
his own work, including: Mother's Day; Adventures of Jimmy; Four in the Afternoon;
Looney Tom, the Happy Lover;
and the double prize winner,
The Pleasure Garden.
Peterson and Paintings

Gallery is her 14th "One-Man
Show."
The exhibition, "Fifteen
Young American Painters",
organized by the Long Beach
Museum of Art, is composed of
fifteen paintings . by fifteen
artists whose work ranges
from completely non-objective
paintings through abstract manipulation o f recognizable
forms to representational impressionism. The varied media
employed by these artists; oil
on canvas, and board casein,
collage, mastics are employed
in techniques, characteristics
of advanced painting in the
United States.
The artists represented are:

The Flowerburger
Since 1945, Ann Halprin has
created a very special note of
achievement in the modern
dance, has appeared frequently as a guest artist and has received acclaim from coast to
coast.
On the West Coast Miss Halprin became co-founder of the
Halprin-Lathrop Studio, from
which she resigned to form her
Dancers Workshop — to prepare dancers as creative artists in their own right. For
this reason her work has always included an emphasis on
the study of improvisation.
as a theatre piece.
Miss Halprin's programme
during Festival Week begins
on Thursday, Feb. 9. She will
conduct a lecture-demonstration on the use of the spoken
word and dance. A dance dialogue will follow entitled:—
"Flowerburger"—,by Ann Halprin and Company. (Poems
used in this dance are by Richard Brautigan).
On Friday at 3.30 in the
Auditorium; an explanation of
the techniques of dance composition prior to a performance of "Birds of America."
The dances will be prefaced by

106 at 12.30 on Tuesday, Feb.
7. Robert Duncan is most
closely identified in his writing
with the Black Mountain
group of poets who were influenced by Ezra Pound and
William Carlos Williams. Mr.
Duncan is one of their most
articulate spokesmen and active writers and has recently
published two volumes: "Selected Poems" (City Light
Books and "The Opening of
the Field" (Grove Press).
Do we make
contact?
"Are the Arts Communicating Today?" will be the topic
of the first symposium to be
held during Festival Week.
The discussion will take place
on Monday at 12:30 in the
auditorium with Dean G. Andrew acting as chairman. The
panel will consist of six people who are in some way connected with the arts.
Mr. C. E. Pratt, president of
the Architectural Institute of
B.C. and 1938 R.A.I.C. Gold
Medal winner, will be taking
part. Mr. Pratt is a graduate
of the University of Toronto

heads the design element. One
of Mr. Pratt's most notable
designs is the B.C. Electric
Building.
John Crown, concert pianist,
who will be giving a recital
during Festival Week has consented to take part in the discussion.
Kenneth Caple, regional director of the Canadian Broadcasting Company, will also be
present.
Dr. Earle Birney will be
representing the faculty members of UBC. Mr. Birney is a
noted poet and author and
thus is well qualified to discuss
this topic.
Week ol
In previous years, the Art
Departments have brought a
great many artists and guest
speakers to the campus. This
has resulted in a continuous
programme of extra-curricular
events being offered throughout the entire school term.
However, most students have
not been aware of the abundance of these presentations.
Consequently this year the Art
Departments in conjunction
with the Student Special
Events Committee have concentrated their resources and will
present one week of cultural
enjoyment. This flooding of
the campus with excellent illustrations of the Arts will
make students become aware
of their value, not only as subjects to study, but as a means
of enriching their experience
at University. The week long
programme will point the extracurricular programme of
the Art Department which is
designed to enhance and complete the education of every
student by an introduction to
the enjoyment of painting, lit-

Hindemith in Pieces
Tuesday, Feb. 7th at 12:30,
in the Auditorium, Dave Robbins and his 21-piece orchestra
will present such old standards
as: April in Paris, You Make
Me Feel So Young, and Laura,
in entirely new dress, arrangements by Al MacMillan, Bob
Hales and Paul Ruthland. The
b?nd is led by trombonist Dave
Robbins. The outstanding feature of the band is its use of
four french horns, along with
the standard five trumpets,
four trombones, five saxes and
three rhythm. The french
horns will be featured in a
small (10-piece) ensemble version of Paul Ruhland's "Jazz
Variations on a theme by
Hindemith."
The orchestra has the unique
honor of being named the most
progressive in Canada by Torontonian Phil Nimmons. All
in all, it is the most exciting
band to hit the U.B.C. campus
in a number of years.
Admission, 25c.
JAZZ
The essence of jazz is improvisation. Bob Hales is a
young trumpet player who believes that a jazz musician gets
out of the music only as much
as he puts into it. In the programme planned for the Festival, he has assembled a group
of standards, plus some original tunes—all featuring a maximum of soul expression. The
advantage of such a performance is that it gives the individual musician—in this case
Bob Hales—the chance to improvise. The result is jazz in
its purest form.
The Bob Hales Quartet will
be in the Auditorium on Wednesday,  Feb.  8th at  12:30.
Panel asks
where to?
Anthony Emery, professor of
History at Victoria College
will chair the second symposium which is entitled "Where

BBC, and worked as a critic
and book reviewer. In his
spare time Mr. Emery is director and past president of
the Art Gallery of Greater
Victoria.
Ann Halprin, the interpretive dancer, who is presently
experimenting with new forms
and media of dance, will also
be on the panel.
Representing poetry on the
panel will be Dewitt Snodgrass. James Broughton, poet-
film maker, also appearing in
the festival, will make up the
fourth member of the panel.
Arthur Erickson, assistant
professor of architecture here
at UBC and winner of the Lt.-
Governor's Bronze Medal, will
be the fifth member. Mr. Erickson has been with the UBC
faculty since 1956.
Dr. Marquis of the music department will complete the
panel. Dr. Marquis is well
known for his work with the
Collegium Musicum and almost all other events in the
music faculty.
During the week-long Festival    of   the    Contemporary
Arts, John Crown, the noted
pianist,   will   give   a   recital;
Barbara Pentland and Robert
Rogers will entertain with a
performance of contemporary
works   for   two   pianos,   and
four hands at one piano, and
the  Collegium Musicum  will
present    Hindemith's    "Geb-
rauchsmusik."
The John Crown recital will
centre   around   the   work   of
California -    composers      Ellis
Kohs, Ingolf Dahl and George
Tremblay.     Featured   on   this
programme will be  the world
premiere   of   Dahl's     "Sonata

A Good Woman
- perhups
The Festival of the Contemporary Arts presents The Good
Woman of Setzuan by Bert-
holt Brecht, Germany's leading playwright of the twentieth century. The play is an
example of what has come to
be called Epic Drama. Like
most of Brecht's plays it employs a wide variety of theatrical techniques, making special
use of music and songs to drive
home its social message. Telling the story of the_ poverty-
stricken prostitute Shen-Te, the
play deals with the problem of
the Festival. They consist of
experimental work by senior
architecture students and those
registered in Fine Arts 228.
Two films will be shown.
The first, "A is for Architecture," will be introduced by
Professor Abraham Rogatnick
Good Woman of Setzuan
how to be good and yet survive in a dog-eat-dog world.
The Department of Theatre
production has been designed
and directed by Donald Soule,
and features Doris Chilcott in
the dual role of Shen-Te.
Original music has been composed for this production by Elliot Weisgurber of the Department of Music, and will be performed by an ensemble to be
conducted by John Avison.    .
For this performance, to
take place in the Auditorium at
2:30 on Thursday, 9th of February there is a specially reduced rate of 25 cents.

It shows changing concepts ot
architecture, showing examples from ancient temples
along the Nile to towering
modern sky-scrapers.
Professor Lionel Thomas will
introduce the second film, —
"The Works of Alexander Calder". It is a poetic, almost
abstract interpretation of the
artist's work. Rhythmically
composed sequences suggest a
parallel between familiar
forms and movements in nature and the movements of
Calder's mobiles.
Professor Thomas will also
introduce "New Age of Architecture," Feb. 9 in Bu. 106 at
2.30. Architects, builders and
planners discuss the aesthetic,
moral and economic implications of architectural design,
they touch on the problems of
urban and suburban development, construction and traffic.
"The Twentieth Century —
Architecture, in Search of Itself," an illustrated lecture by
Professor Arthur Erickson,
Architect, will take place at
3.30, Feb. 8, in Bu. 106. Professor Erickson will outline
the dominant ideas and motivations that have molded our
vision of architecture to this
point of the century.
"The New Age of Architecture," a short film, will be followed by a panel discussion by
several well-known architects,
chaired by Professor B. C- Binning of the Fine Arts Department, Feb. 9, 2.30, Bu. 106.
at 12:30, in Buchanan 106.
They will feature contemporary works including "Sonata
for Two Pianos" by Stravinsky, three Piano Duets and a
"Sonata for Two Pianos" by
Miss Pentland.
Miss Pentland is a Canadian
composer, and she teaches composition at tne University of
British Columbia. She has
written    four    symphonies,    a

chamber,opera, several piano
works, and numerous chamber
pieces for different combinations. She has had performances in Canada, the United
States and Europe. In 1956
her Second String Quartet was
the only Canadian work to be
played before the International Society for Contemporary
Music  in  Stockholm.
Robert Rogers is a Canadian
pianist from North Vancouver
whose primary interest is
modern music. He received
his early training in Brandon
and Winnipeg, Manitoba. In
1957 he took a B.A. in English and Music from UBC, and
also in 1957 he won a Vancouver Women's Musical Club
scholarship. Between 1958 and
1960 he did post-graduate work
at the University of Washington in Seattle. At present Mr.
Rogers is completing his thesis requirement for an M.A. in
piano. His topic is The Piano
Music of Arnold Schoenburg.
Mr. Rogers has performed in
recitals in Vancouver, Bellingham ahd Seattle, and has also
played for CBC radio.
On Friday, 10th February,
the Collegium Musicum will
present Hindemith's "Ge-
brauchmusik," a performance
of the Abendkonzerl of "Plotter Musiktag." The performance will be repeated at 8 p.m.
the same evening, and will be
accompanied by an exhibition
of architectural models, followed by short talks by Professor Wolfgang Gerson and
Professor Lionel Thomas, both
of the school of architecture,
and by Professor Hans-Karl
Piltz of the Department of Music on "Music and Architecture."

Arts Gives Students
Pointers In Primer
By MIKE SHARZER
As the Chant Commission has recently pointed out, the
average student entering U.B.C. is a clod. Therefore, to aid new
students, the university should provide a guide book that will
riot only be informative but on such a level that the student
will he able to understand it. The following is an excerpt from
this guide. Any similarity to a certain intellectual magazine
is purely plagiarism.
THE  UBC  PRIMER
Lesson One: This is the campus.
This is a beautiful campus.
The men are digging the campus.
Dig, dig, dig!
This is our winter works project.
Winter works help the seasonal unemployment.
Help, help, help!
This winter the men are making sidewalks.
This spring they will dig up
the sidewalks.
Our winter works last all the
year round.
Lesson Two: This is lhe Brock.
The Brock is a hangout.
The Brock is a rendezvous.
The Brock is a mess.
Many people meet here at
3.30.
Many people drive cars here
at 3.30.
These people make the Brock
a mess.
People drink coffee at the
Brock.
Cof, cof, cof!
That is why it's a hangout.
After you drink the coffee
you'll know why they hang out
here.
Lesson Thirteen: See the Arts-
man.
His name is Art.
He takes his coffee in the
cafeteria.
Caf, caf, caf!
This Artsman stands for integrity in government.
This Artsman stands for sit-in
strikes.
This Artsman stands for socialized   self-determination.
This Artsman has a fractured
ass.
He likes to discuss Plato in
the caf.
He likes to discuss Sartre in
the caf.
You like Plato better than
Sartre.
You haven't read Sartre.
Neither has he.
Lesson Fifteen:    See    the   Big
Red Mass.
Big, big, big!
They are all Engineers.
They think Artsmen are finks.
Artsmen think they are finks.
They are both right.
All Engineers    don't    give a
damn. ]
All Engineers can drink forty
beers.
All Engineers give blood.
Engineers are profane, drunken anaemics.
Lesson-Seventeen: See the Aggie
Moo, moo, moo!
During the term Aggies raise
Pigs.
During the term Aggies raise
cows.
At their danees-Aggier-raise
particular hell.
Sometimes an Aggie gets
drunk.
Drunk, drunk, drunk!
When he does he acts like an
ass.
This proves one thing.
N6t all Aggies are cows.
Lesson 101    (a):   The Students'
Council meets in Brock.
The Students' Council has
many rules.
Rules, rules, rules!
"Thou shalt not drink at our
functions" is a rule.
The Aggies were drinking at a
function.
The Aggies were caught by
the Mounties. -  -
The Aggies broke our rule.
There are no Aggies on council, only hypocrites.
Lesson 110:    This is a Buster's
man.
illegal
away
He is  towing
cars.
Tow, tow, tow!
Not all cars are illegal.
Only cars that are parked are
illegal.
There is only one way for you
to solve the parking problem.
This way is to do nothing.
Nothing, nothing, nil!
ISoon Buster's will taw your
car away,
Soon it will    be.   taken    to
Buildings: and Grounds.
SOon all the cars will be taken to BuMdings and Grounds.
Then there will be no parking
problem.
B   &   G  will park  your  car
for you.,
Moral Lesson:    This is the end.
Some will say it is too early.
Most will say it is too late.
Most will say it should have
been sootier. . .
Like at the beginning.
I agree.
AIF Aims
For Model
Parliament
On Club's Day last term, there
was an amusing booth set up
amid the booths of the prominent political clubs existing on
our Campus. This booth heralded the arrival of a new politically minded group — the
Allied Integrity Front.
This group consisted of free-
acting, free-thinking, free-speaking individuals who felt that
something was lacking in the
existing political activities.
With determination, the AIF
set forth its chief aims:
• To promote and encourage
integrity in all levels of government.
• To encourage the participation of the intelligentsia in political affairs.
• , TO participate in the Model
Parliament and there, with all
participants well acquainted
with parliamentary procedure,
to encourage the best parliamentary traditions.
These aims were primary, but
many persons were inclined to
believe a fictitious manuscript,
with absurd ideas to be the essence of- a platform. In truth,
no platform existed.
RESOLUTIONS GENERAL
A program for support was
drawn up; by the members at an
open general meeting, and. the
resolutions were kept general in
nature due to the necessity for
further detailed discussion. Remarks by several individuals
were indicative of the general
feeling that perhaps here was a
-group without a set platform
mfnieftce'd by a parent organization off1 the campus. The ideas
of one and all were laid before
the meeting without fear of prejudice bjrra parent organization.
MODEL PARLIAMENT
The AIF has had much resistance in attempting to achieve
one of its primary aims — to
participate in Model Parliament.
The Parliamentary Council,
composed of the political clubs
on campus, and which is in
charge of political elections on
campus, has quashed the application of the AIF; for entry into
the elections for Model Parlia^
ment.
The refisons fOrthis raove may
or may not h?ave substance. The
Council felt * that tfre; AIF must
prove itself worthy of participation in Model fParitameat.
OPEN HOUSE COMES
This being Open Bouse Year,
Model Parliament must be worthy of its heritage!
Any "new party" with un-
proven ability and sincerity
should be regulated in its activities though parliamentary decisions of^ exclusion are contrary
to the best parliamentary traditions.
WARRANTS STUDENT
INTEREST
Towards the close of the fall
term, the Allied Integrity Front
sponsored the controversial commentator Jack Webster who
spoke on one of the primary
aims of the group — the promotion of integrity in government.
If this is an indication of the
sincerity of the group, and continued sincere political participation on campus is forthcoming
— perhaps the Allied Integrity
Front warrants more student
interest, and perhaps reconsideration by Parliamentary Council
before the election nominations
close next week.
Education Expose

By JOHN LECKY
Last summer I fell into conversation with a young fellow
of my own age whilst removing weeds from amongst the shrubbery in the gardens of lihe Law school. I learned that the previous spring he had earned a B.A. and now he informed me
that he was about to go into Commerce.

CIVIL STRIFE WILL ENSUE
In any case the 50% of people
who work will complain that
they support the remainder who
study and civil strife will ensue.
On the other hand if a minority
were educated and class structure depended on the individual's degree of intelligence, Town
and Gown would still be in conflict. The essence of the whole
issue is that education on a national basis is a spiral.
And like the economy this is
either inflationary or deflationary. At the present the trend
is inflationary.

"And after that?" I asked.

he fully expected to be qualified to teach elementary school

WHO WILL PAY?
A-few weeks ago, the chancellor of an eastern university-
announced that according to his
figures 350,000 students would
have to be accommodated at
colleges in Canada by 1965.
"Who will pay for this?" demanded his critics.
"The government," said the
don.
Soon half of the population
will be teaching and half the
population will be learning if
the present trend continues. The
costs incurred will probably be
countered by appeals to the international money market. Accompanying this demand will be
a plea that the low interest rate
normally granted to underdeveloped countries be awarded to
undereducated countries like
Canada.

Challenge to Enjoyment
Students at U.B.C. are continually being asked to support, donate, attend, or get active, btnVseldo mare they asked
to enjoy themselves. This
Week, however, students are
asked to enjoy the Festival of
the Contemporary Arts.
A common fallacy among students today is that once a person becomes able to supply the
means for survival, a good full
life will follow. In other words,
some people think that once
they have attained a position of
relative freedom from worry
about financial matters they
will automatically lead an enjoyable life.
rf.    if.    ip
Unfortunately,^ these students
are rudely disillusioned later in
life when they find themselves
financially secure. Actually
their life is far from good and
quite empty.
Our society affords many examples of people who are seeking to fill their life with enjoyment but not knowing where to
look.
The transient fads among
"adults" and the trend to "bigger
and better" objects regardless
of their intrinsic value are examples of a people serening for
enjoyment.    They  want  happiness but are unable to obtain it.
*T*     V     •!*
FAIL TO FIND KEY TO
ENJOYMENT IN ARTS
These people fail to find the
key to enjoyment — the Arts.
They manage to go through all
their years of education and
training without ever coming
into serious contact with art.
These misdirected people search
for diverse ways to amuse themselves, but they can never devote sufficient time to getting a
grounding in art appreciation;
an appreciation that will lead to
pleasure, satisfaction and emotional maturity unobtainable by
any other means.
They think art is just for artists and fail to perceive the reality, the depth of pleasure, and
the satisfaction obtainable from
beholding and admiring great
works of art. Enjoyment, from
art awaits everyone; unfortunately too few find it.

THE CRITICS
EDITOR: DAVE BROMIGE
ive  read  prism
"She was plump and beautiful and under other conditions
I would have built a house
and lived in it with her, but
we were a long way in the
desert, and there was no other
game, so I ate her."
Of course it is monstrously
unfair to let me review Prism,
since I am inclined to be, in
matters literary, both ignorant
and obstreperous. But I hope
that the justice of my criticism
will induce you, gentle reader,
to spare me and to have those
who commit "contemporary
writing"  put to death.
If'these "people are driven
by dark demons to write, then
let them write. But'tb publish
them. ' is to imply that their
work is deserving of attention,
when in fact, to attend to their
crested snorkings is a waste of
time bordering on the criminal.
Infinitely  apart lie   the
toad and hare
And the Kiang river, shallow and clear.
On with the axe job. The
cover is still cheap and messy
but at last the title has been
located decently within the
overall design. The name
"Prism" is itself splendidly descriptive — upperclass, constrained, constipated, thin and
sere, frosted, gemlike. No humor, no guts, no sensuality.
This magnificent gaffe announces the magazine's subconscious intentions as a joke.
But the joke is a dull one, not
worth putting up with.
The difficulty in reviewing
the contents of Prism is in
•knowing how much to blame
the editors for encouraging the
contributors and how much to
blame the contributors for prevailing upon the editors. The
responsibility traditionally lies
with the editors, but I shall
deal with the individual writers, in hope of giving them
valuable instruction in their
craft and sullen art.
Antilokos   and   Mekisteus,
henceforth shall forswear to
farroting.
"We  think too much for  ma
gic." says a character in
George Woodcock's Masker-
man. She might have added
that we think too much to accept Woodcock's fake myths.
Or his ornate language covering a paucity of observation
and characterization. His people are never located, never
individualized, never regionalized, never universalized, never placed in any dramatic context whatsoever. The quality
of humanness that we minimally expect from the dramatist
bows to the cloying, jingling
weight of Woodcock's sneering
and triumphant light verse. If
you're going to write Christopher Fry plays you must be
able to produce verbal riches
of Freian contundancy. When
a WTiterhas nothing to say he
must take pains to be charming and quick. Perhaps Masker-
man would slip by more easily
with Ian Thorne purring in
our ears.
Therma Reid Lower's Boom
Man is personal; clever, ahd
not the "least bit interesting.
Another incredible and cumbersome sex metaphdr, giant,
hopeless, totally exhausting
and unproductive. And more
maniacal metaphysics. "apples", "frigid moon", God! If
you invented a machine for
writing "Lower mainland poetry for women" this poem is
what it would write, over and
over. As it already has.
There is amusement to be
found in Wan and Lo Nobles
and Mandarins tripping over
one another.
I couldn't read Margaret
Saltern's short story—I was
that repelled by the title and
the illustration. So I skimmed
the thing and found more clop-
ping metaphysics and a few
whimpering and grimy actualities. I also noticed that she buggered her syntax (commas particularly) at least a half dozen
times. She has some skill for
the right word, but she confirms my opinion that the short
story is the most decadent of
all literary genres.
Wilfred   Watson.   His   name
marks him for what he is.
You'd think he'd have sense
enough to change it. His poems
are a triumph of mind over
matter, of ingenuity over significance. They are the littlest
poems imaginable. I've never
read anything as clever and
as empty as The Necklace. Watson shows some feeling for
invective in The Hawk, but
why can't he grow up and stop
shooting clay pigeons? The two
poems about bears just made
me scream with irritation. Not
rage,   just   irritation.
Vince Sharman's short story
should never have been written. It simply is not life-enhancing to use one's imagination as
he has. His technique can most
mercifully be described as ordinary verging on clumsy.
But   there   are   limits,   it
appears. Let them come.
I had some hopes for David
Wevill, since he has the same
name as a mountaineer who
climbed Mt. Robson about fifteen years ago. And indeed his
poem is the best thing in this
issue of Prism. But essentially
he is of the same stamp as
Watson —he presents an issue
and then smashes it with his
laborious images. He has great
skill. He would make fine
cabinets if he would turn his
hand to it.
None of this crap—the stuff
of life attenuated to the consistency of celery juice-should
ever have been written or published. Dealing with Prism has
the same flavour as dealing
with a stone in your shoe —
it's insufferable to have to
waste life dealing with unadulterated   annoyance.
When you find' shieve's' rest,
then you can find ram's rest
too.

cops and robbers
THE COMIC operas of Gilbert and Sullivan have been
perennial successes for almost
three generations. • Their combination of sparkling melodies
and penetrating wit has yet to
be* surpassed in the English
theatre. Although much of
the social commentary is dated, the situations presented retain their humour, a humour
which has one basic moral:
"Things are seldom as they
seem."
LAST SATURDAY at the
Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the
Greater Vancouver Operatic
Society presented their thirteenth annual G & S production, the Pirates of Penzance,
the story of a pirate apprentice
torn between his abhorrence of
pirates and his duty as their
apprentice.
ON THE WHOLE, Saturday's
production, aided by excellent
costumes and scenery, conveyed an appropriately buoyant
spirit although its level of performance varied. G & S productions are rooted in tradition, an influence which can
hinder flexibility. Doreen
Bell's direction generally followed tradition with a resultant standardization of gestures
for specific situations. If, however, one believes as this reviewer does, that such an approach heightens the satire,
this type of direction is an asset.
MUSICALLY,    one   of    the
credits of the performance was
Beverly Fyfe's conducting. His
pacing was almost always
brisk and despite the small-
ness of his orchestra he was
able to elicit an adequately
full sound. Although one could
have hoped for more nuances
generally and for a quicker
tempo in the Major-General's
song, Mr. Fyfe's control over
his quite well-balanced and
proficient chorus and orchestra amply compensated.
IN   THE   ROLE  of   Major-
General Stanley, Norman
Slack could have inflected his
sonorous voice much more
subtly. Stanley is a G & S
"type" character in the tradition of Sir Joseph Porter, KCB
—a sfwffy, highly ' eccentric
' old dirffer, providing a role
full of potentialities for development. While Mr. Slack assumed an appropriate : fussi*-
ness, he could have injected
much more detail into his characterization. Even his opening
song, while well sung, lacked
briskness and sparkle.
Clifford Cox's Sergeant of
Police suffered from an overly
burlesque approach. He tended also to over-emphasis in his
" singing, which often ' seemed
forced. Ross Laidley as the
Pirate King performed satisfactorily while Nora Harriman
as Ruth, Pirate Maid of All
Work, was more than satisfactory. Hers was one of the best-
disciplined voices—not an opulent one but warm and well
projected. The other minor
principals sang adequately,
though Richard Carley's Sam-
ual was weak both dramatically and vocally.
AS THE TWO lovers, Richard Loney and Loro Hiruchuk
varied in performance. Mr. Lo-
ney's voice ws sometimes colorless and when forced, coarse
as well. His acting was often
rudimentary. Miss Hiruchuk's
voice also varied although it is
the more beautiful of the two;
The aria "Poor Wandering
One," being a burlesque of
grand opera soprano acrobatics presented her a vocal showcase which was only partially
successful. Some of its high
tessitura strained her upper
register quite noticeably. Generally, however, she sang and
acted with appropriate clarity
and simplicity.
ALTHOUGH the production
in question was faulty, as the
previous criticisms have
shown, its whole was definitely better than the sum of its
parts. As a largely profession,
al production by a largely nonprofessional group, its calibre
was sufficiently high to ensure
an enjoyable and competent
presentation. If its soloists
were not first rate, much of the
rest of the production was.
Vancouver has this group to
thank for some of its best Gilbert and Sullivan performances.

MEET HUSKIES
'Birds can clinch title
By  PETE  GELIN
The UBC Thunderbirds can
clinch their second consecutive WCIAU conference title,
providing they can make a
twin killing over the up and
coming cagers from Saskatchewan here this weekend.
Games are at 8:30 Friday
and Saturday.
Odds are in favor of t h e
Birds doing just this. Although the Huskies appear
stronger than last year's entry, much improvement is
needed before they will offer any threat to the highflying  Birds.
But the surprising Prairie
"Dogs" can be by no means
desregarded as a potential
threat.
They still pack the needed
scoring punch with the return
of Mel Hiszti. Huszti, one of
the    league's    leading    scorers
in   the   previous   season,   is
again   a   league   standout   in
this department.
GOOD SHAPE
Added support will come
from two high-scOring guards,
Don Fry and Terry Little.
Health-wise, the Birds are
in fine shape. Dune McCal-
lum remains the only question
mark in the lineup. McCal-
lum twisted his ankle in a
practice early this week and
may be sidelined.
The Birds suffer from no
lack of strength, however.
Mainstays Wayne Osborne
and Ken Winslade are both
on hot scoring streaks.
Osborne roared back from
a slump to dump in 19 points
against Saskatchewan in the
UBC double  win  last  week.
Winslade also came through
with a tremendous effort,
scoring 30 big ones in the
same series.
Ably backing up this terrible twosome will be Ed
Pederson. Ed shone for the
Birds in their last tilt, coming off second high in the
individual point totals Saturday night with 16.
BRODERS   OUT
The possibility of a UBC-
Lethbridge Broder game now
seems doubtful. "The overhead expenses wouldn't make
it worthwhile for the Broders," said UBC coach Jack
Pomfret. He addede that his
boys would certainly give
Lethbridge a run if they ever
did show.
UBC Jayvees meet Labatts
at 6:30 Friday, and Braves
take on Magee High at 6:30
Saturday in the preliminaries.
Girls  head to   'Peg
lor curling,  hoop
UBC women curlers and
basketballers headed for Winnipeg and the WCIAU basketball and curling championships Wednesday.
The round-robin tournaments will last until Saturday. UBC, again represented
by the Thunderettes, won the
basketball event handily last
year. The curlers, represented
this year by Diane McNaugh-
ton, Lorna McCready, Genevieve Walsh and Pat Chataway, last year came within
one end of winning their
event.
Soccer 'Birds heading
for fourth straight win
UBC Thunderbirds meet with
their toughest competition of the
new year Saturday at 2 p.m. in
UBC THUNDERBIRDS and forward Keith Hartley take on
the lowly Saskatchewan Huskies Friday and Saturday,
8:30 p.m. in Memorial Gym.
Jayvees meet Labatts at 7

SPORTS
SHORTS
UBC's rugby Thunderbirds
travel to Victoria this weekend
to meet the pick of Victoria's
rugby teams in the first round
of the McKechnie Cup, B.C.'s
unofficial rugger championship.
In the other parts of the series, Vancouver's top players
take on the best of the North
Shore. The winners of these two
matches will meet next week
in Vancouver to decide the
champion.
SWIMMING
The UBC swimming team
meets Western Washington College Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at
Vancouver's  Crystal Pool.
UBC lost 70-25 to a strong
University oi Alberta team last
weekend. Peter Pellatt, in diving, and Bunny Gilchrist, in the
200 yards backstroke, took the
only wins for UBC.
In the last encounter with
Western Washington, UBC lost
49-46.
AHLETIC BALL SET
FOR BROCK TONIGHT
The Big Block Club is
sponsoring the first annual
Athletic Ball tonight from
9 to 12 in Brock Lounge.
There will be an orchestra
for dancing, and all students
are welcome.
Tickets, selling for $1 at
the AMS offices, are good
for admission to the basketball game at Memorial Gym,
UBC Stadium when they meet
Vancouver  Canadians.
Canadians are a tough team
sporting two players who were
selected for the B.C. All-stars
last year.
UBC's playing-coach Roy Nosella hopes his Birds will be
up for this one. The Birds are
currently riding a three-game
win streak and have been scoring better than during the first
half of the season.
Top scorers so far for the
Birds are Nosella with 7 goals,
and outside left Ron Cross with
six.
The club is currently in fourth
place with five wins, four losses and two ties, for 12 points.
RON CROSS

YMCA edges
Braves again
In a foul-filled game at Winston Churchill High School
Wednesday, UBC Braves nearly
gained an upset victory over
powerful Y.M.C.A. in Junior
Men's league play.
The game, which ended up 70-
67 for YMCA, was the tightest
of the four games the teams
have played this year. YMCA
has won all four. High scorers
for the Braves were Ron Parker and John Cook with 14
points. Rick Williamson was
close  behind with  12.
Meanwhile, UBC Jayvees
have been giving Vancouver
Senior "A" teams a rough time.
Tuesday they dropped Puritans 69-62, with Ed Terris canning 21 points. Friday, they
meet Labatts at 6:30 in Memorial gym, then travel to Bellingham Monday to challenge
Western Washington JV's. The
Braves meet Magee High Saturday, 6:30 in Memorial gym.

GYMNASTICS
Birds head south
The UBC gymnastic team travels to Seattle for a meet against
•the University of Washington
Saturday.
The ..gymnasts are fresh from
an impressive 96 to 61 win over
'Eastern Washington last weekend, US C took seven out of 10
events in competition with East-
ernv each team member turn-
tStg in a top-performance. Team
flaytain Gordie Gannon captured three first place honors. Bill
Kay, Peter Pellatt, Rheal Fin-

- Coach Doug Whittle thinks
TJBC should "stand a good
"chance" against the University
of Washington. UBC hopes for
a good Showing to prepare the
"team  for- the  Western Confer
ence meet at Pullman, Washington, later this month.
The gymnastics team will be
putting on a display at David
Thompson, February  9th.
Big Block Club active group
You have probably seen,
at one time or another, a
brawny chunk of muscle
striding around the campus
proudly displaying the letters "BC" in blue and gold
felt on his chest.
These are the "Big Blocks"
(the letters, we mean), which
are awarded to athletes on
varsity teams who have
achieved exceptional levels of
(performance in their sport.
The recipients of the letter
automatically become a member of the Big Block Club,
an honorary service organization of athletes.
The granting of awards
(both big and small blocks) is
actually made uy an awards
committee, comprised of the
president, secretary, and two
other members of the club;
the athletic director; the president of MAA; and a faculty
representative. Recommendations for the awards are made
to the committee by the manager and coach of the respective teams — individual records submitted as the basis of
decision.
The club provides many
services on campus, assisting
the Men's Athletic Association and Men's Athletic Committee at Armistice Day, in
the selling of "A-cards," and
in sponsorship of the Frosh
smoker. The major project of
the club is, of course, the
awards banquet, where the
Big Blocks are given out. This
is the prestige event of t h e
year for UBC athletes and
certainly provides the campus with one of its best contacts with downtown groups.
Tonight, the club is sponsoring the annual "Athletic
Ball" in the Brock from 9-12.
There will be an orchestra
for   dancing.   The   dance   is
primarily, for athletes, but is
open to all students. Tickets,
selling for $1 at the AMS offices, are also good for admission to the Friday night basketball games at Memorial
gym.
Football meeting
for all interested
All campus males over
6'5" and 250 pounds are es-.,
pecially asked to attend a
special meeting of the football team Wednesday in Rm.
218 of the Memorial gym. All
others interested in going out
for football next year are
also  asked to attend.
Coach Frank Gnup will re-,
portedly have a film on hand.
Even Joe Dang will be there!.-.

From Poge 1
Pearsons   UBC   address
'Tween classes
UCC failed to bring the
'tween Classes to the desk by
final deadline so we decided
to not run any notices today.
Since making the agreement
with us they have neglected
deadlines  entirely.—Ed.
it is capable, not those which it
cannot do and where failure
in the attempt would discredit
and weaken it,'  'he stated.
He added that disarmament
would be impractical without
the creation of an agency to
police   that   disarmament.
U.N. FORCE
i
"One of the most disappoint- j
ing  features of the  recent his- j
tory of the U.N. is the failure to •
develop   some   such   permanent j
force  on  the  foundation  estab- j
lished by United Nations Emer-1
•jency Force in the Suez crisis,"' i
he said. |
"International    law,    interna-1
al force must be our objective,"
tional organization, internation-
he stated.
Pearson commented that the
equal vote of small, comparatively powerless nations in the
U.'N. with the major powers inspired a new kind of diplomacy
and has "given an opportunity
to men of ability and moral
force and nations of moral force
and   reputation."
PUBLIC OPINION
"The U.N. Assembly is creating something in the nature of
a world public opinion. This
does have an effect in checking if not yet in preventing, aggressive actions by predatory
individual states. It has its own
power for peace," he said.
'Fear is the oasic cause of international insecurity in the
world today. We are tense because we are afraid; and with
good reason," he said.
"We of the West have a deep
and abiding fear of assault from
and destruction by this Communist power. The USSR and
other Communist States claim
to have equal fear of us, or
more specifically of the United.
Stales of America. We are all of
us afraid of the future." he said.
"Our fears are like those of
the Romans in the latter years
of the Empire when they felt
their fine plumbing threatened
by the rude barbarians. In our
century, those whom we still
think of, wrongly, as 'rude barbarians' have thrown missiles
into outer space and around the
moon," he stated. ;
3EASTIN US
Pearson warned that there "is
something atavistic, something
of the beast In us which leads un
to the brink of nuclear disaster."
"There is no effective alternar
tive to the UN for working'"out
arrangement politics; no other
practical focus for our aspirations,'  'he  said.
Pearson concluded his speech
by saying, "It is within the United Natkws. that we must demonstrate our patience, our skill
and our understanding- of the
problems of the present and our
hope and faith for the future."
