Greer-Belkov Education Program
Gets 90 Pc Approval At AMS Meet
UBC Board of Governors will decide Monday whether
student fees are to be raised one dollar in January in order to
finance a unique "education for democracy" program.
Success of the plan formulated by student Cliff Greer and
approved by students at a general meeting this month hangs, on
passage of the fee increase.

"I made a prediction about the first

Wilson.
But he would go as far as to say
that UBC never had a better chance
this season to win a game.

Did Columbus Go Too Far?
Yankee Life 'Tawdry1
Says horvm Minister
By LES ARMOUR
Despite government charges
that Columbus had paved thc way
for the "tawdry juke box American way of life" by his discovery
of America, Parliamentary Forum
decided Thursday ni;*hl that he
had  nol  gone  too  fir
Mike Lakes, Prime Minister,
told the Forum that the "world
would have been far belter off if
Columbus  had  stayed   home.''
North America, he said, "had
produced nothing but material
goods   which   are   really   immater
ial."
He declined to explain this paradox.
His tirades against the corruptness of the American way of life
echoed and re-echoed through the
near-empty house arid were finally drowned by Engineer's loud
speakers exhorting reels Hi r I - |(l
rise against the lyiamo of Arts-
men,
Other government ;> eaker,-, expounded Ihe phillo.sioph.v thai' the
earth is in reality Hell and therefore Columbus j*iad only extended
that Hell by discovering new portions of it.
Barney Ross, leader of the opposition, maintained that, North
America represented I'he only hope
of the world and called upon
North. Americans to carry on the
pioneer spirit of Columbus.
To this, government, speakers replied that Columbus had onlv
fled to North America to escape
ins wife, and asked Mr. Ross
where North Americans were to
flee if I hoy were t'o follow Columbus' lead.

Fa* Greater Understanding
Sunday is United Nations day in Canada,
and next week in universities across the
Dominion, students will celebrate United
Nations Week.
The UN club at UBC has arranged an
extensive program with the objective of
marshalling support for the concept of world
federation.
■ The road'to UN, since its conception three
yerai ago^ Sunday, has been rough, rocky
and filled- with detours. It is not always
easy to *■ visualize ultimate success for the
United Nations in these days of world crises.
And yet there must be success.
We; at the university can d6 our bit towards
insuring success in a tremendously difficult
venture, by acquainting ourselves with the
United Nations Association and supporting it
Next week students will have thc opportunity of listening to prominent speakers,
watching a 'mock' general assembly, seeing
'films and hearing debates on the United
Nations.
In addition, undergraduates will be offered'
membership in the United Nations Association of Canada. By joining in the special week
dedicated to the entire world students can
support the concepts of freedom and democracy and greater understanding among nations.
efans Are Looking For Blood
pB&s oft' maligned Thunderbirds will be
playing one of the most crucial tilts of their
football' careers tomorrow when they line jp
against'the Whitman Missionaires from Walla
Walla; Washington.
Few fans realized there was a rather noticeable drop in attendance at last week's game
despite efforts to arouse student interest in
the team.
The plain facts are that an all too large
number of people on the campus have given
up- football games, until they hear of a win
or a£ least a close decision.
The near win, which tho 'Birds needed so
badly after'two crushing defeats at the beginning of the season, was staged' last Saturday against Willamette and the pick up in
interest has been tremendous.
Already the previously discouraged armchair experts, are beginning to talk of two
or three victories this season and their enthusiasm has been infectious.
For the first" time this year the Thunderbirds are given almost an even chance to
come up with a win and this ■ fact alone
should bring out many of the doubtful spectators.
The rest is now up to the team itself
They are not expected to stage a decisive
victory but even the most ardent of thdir
supporters demand that they put a convincing
display against the unheralded Missionaires.
If the 'Birds are to succeed' in at least
making' the score close, the support they
receive from the student body will be tro •
nendous.
On thc other hand, however, if their showing is poor the overnight drop in enthusiasm
will be so great that Ole Baaken will need
more than four orchids from Hawaii to fill the
grandstands.

If You Ask Me
Ycu'll bo looking at yourself
soon and wondering if it's really
you. Thc totem snaps are in, but
won't be ready for distribution until early next week. President of
AMS, Dave Brousson, is looking
into the question of're-takes for
those who are not satisfied with
tho original pictures.
On the question of tho "Plant
Committee" investigation, Brousson said, "There is absolutely
nothing wrong as far as dishonesty
cf past Council members is concerned." He deplored the misleading headlines and si'orics of downtown newspapers on tho whole
affair.
For Vets Only
Here is grave news. The university branch or tho Canadian Legion is seriously considering closing its doors. Members cf the executive arc discouraged by tho
lack of interest of the student
veterans on the campus towards
Legion activity.
Hero aro few things you can do
to boost morale and show appreciation.
Attend the colorful mass initiation of all Legion members at 12:30
today in tho auditorium. Also, attend i'he Legion Tea Dance in thc
Brock from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.. The
pinccssess of thc various faculties
will be there. They'll bo glad to
meet you.
If your grants are to run out
this term, get into tho Legion office today and fill oui' a specially-
prepared questionaire.
If you come out to tho football *'
games and enjoy them, then you
must realize what a treat it would
bo for crippled vets at Shaughnes-
ry Hospital• to sec a game. Thc
Legion needs cars' i'o bring them
cut on Ncvembcr 13. How about a
ittlc co-cperation?
Said Mike Lakes, Legion President: "It's up to them, We're
ready   to  do  our  part,   providing
ihey  show   interest."

"Key Largo'' just finished its second
week run. in Vancouver, isn't quite all
it's cracked up to be. The movie is an
adaptation of a play written by Maxwell Anderson about a veteran, who
regains his courage after the Spanish
Civil War on one of the remote keys
iff the coast of Florida.
Director John Huston, who also directed' "Treasure of Sierra Mad re,'' one
of the year's best pictures, has taken
ihe story and given it a post World War
II  background  in -the  same  locality.
Looking  at  tlie   lineup   of  stars   one
•   would  think thtU  this would be just
mother picture with each person representing a type. Such is not the case.
* McLoucl (Humphrey Bogart), a disillusioned   veteran   of   World   War   II
journeys   to   Key   Largo   to   visit   the
wife and father of his friend who was
killed in Italy. On the scene when ho
arrives are Rocco (Edward G'. Robin-
ion),  his  throe  gunmen,  and  Rocco's
mistress (Claire Trevor), who, waiting
for Rocco to return from Cuba where
lie  was  exiled  aftor  Prohibition,  has
jecome an alcoholic.
The war has turrcd McLoucl into a
:ynic. He refuses to act when he sees
.nsults and threats pile up on hotel
keeper Lionel Barrymore and his
■ daughter-in-law Lauren Bacall, When
!'.c finally realizes what these people
:tre and' what they stand for - prohibition, "the good old days", etc. - lie
revolts and kills thorn all.
No sultry eyed siroti is Lauren
bacall in this film, Director II as Ion
''.xs brought a very simple performance
■   ■
from her and Bogart's transformation
from   disillusionment! to   courage   is
lighly   believable.
But Director Huston gave his own
secret away when lie said, "Rocco was
iupposcd to represent a sort of evil
[lower of reaction. In other words we
.ire headed for the same kind of world
we had before, even down to the gang
lords . . ."
Here is where the picture fails to
make its point, Huston claims that thc
picture lost its soul on the cutting room
floor of Warner Brothers studios and
consequently this is the last picture
Huston will make for them.
*k        -fr        t&t
Also held over a second week in Vancouver is J, Arthur Rank's adaptation'
;)f "Oliver Twist." The picture is di
rected by England's John Huston, David
Lean who also made, "Brief Encounter''
:md "Great Expectations," two excellent motion pictures,
Lean, as in "Great Expectations," has
:;iven "Oliver Twist.'' a thoroughly
Dickensian treatment but possibly ho-
•atise of the story one finds the pic-
.ure just a trifle too much to swallow
nt one sitting. It seems impossible that
so many coincidences could be wrapped
up in one plot.
Ill'spits? of the story the picture is-a
small   mai ju'p'coe'.   C'Y-'s   of   "Anti-
Semitism'' have been raised agninst it
ecause  of  the   portrayal   of  Fagin,   a

■ lum conslanlly in  the book as "thc

film though.
Tlie best rebuttal to the charges
comes from the Toronto Jewish Congress, who called on Rank representatives and later dropped the charges
saying, "We feel that an Englishman
has just as much right to complain
aboht Bill Sikcs."
And indeed' he has, as most Britishers have a right to hang'' their head':;
in shame that such an era existed1 in
British history. The book way a forcible social1 document and the times are
admirably portrayed as the camera
weaves its way through thc slums and
the high society of London.
Young Howard Davies is undoubtedly as authentic a young Oliver Twist
a.s could be imagined and hardly one.
pari is miscast. The picture is full of
clever little tricks at capturing mood.
e.g., a thorn bush etched against a
stormy sky when Oliver's mother feel;;
her first labor pains, Oliver's terror
at having to sleep in the same room as
coffins ore made in the Soworbitry
household, the grim foreboding of the
Jacen of (he parish board as Oliver i.s
'end before? them to be sentenced to
pick oakum.'
As well as being' an authentic social'
document, "Oliver Twist" is a fine
molion picture directed by England's
alilosi man. It is, interesting to speculate just how hai' the Lriti.h can go in
breaking ihe Hollywood half nel-oti

Now that fall is really under way,
our thoughts turn to the "big evenings." Evenings where real ball dresses take thu spotlight with their
glamor and beauty.
Somehow tho styles for foi:r.a'.s remain fairly consistent—with only
.'.light variations from year to year.
Occuring periodically arc such points
as high-keyed colors, strapless or
backletu gowns, slim or swirling
.'.kirty, long cr short' sleeves. All are
variations which correspond to the
current daytime versions.
Highlights in evening wear this
season arc few but important. Bare
shoulders aro wrapped in .stole.:, of
tulle or net, fabrics are richer than
ever before, while satin pumps glisten 'ne-ath skirt hems. Too, many
gowns .'appear slim and fitted in front,
but sweep cut fan-wise when you
move.   Definitely' eye-catching.
Tonight an exquisite array of all
tho latest in gowns will bc seen at
thc "Trafalgar Day Ball." Many of
the foity-nine debutantes are at
prctcnt students of UBC. Most popular style chosen by them is tho alluring off-shoulder model. Of course
all gowns will bc in white.
«i, * *
The  gown   worn  by  Barbara  Asli-
wrrlli is reminiscent of tiic hoopskirt
era, with its > lender bodice and full
skirt caught at the hem to reveal a
1 .cc  ruffled  slip.   .

Varsity Meets
All Blacks In
Crucial Tilt
By DOUG MURRAY-ALLAN
Varsity and North Shore
All^Blacks will battle for the
league leadership in English
rugby's Miller Cup series Saturday at Confederation Park.
The' Varsity squad now leads the
league by a half game margin after
scoring a narrow win over their
brothers-in-arms, the UBC fifteen,
last Wednesday.
The latter group will have a chance
to redeem themselves Saturday coming
when they display their talents before hapless Rowing Clubbers at
Brockton Oval. Game time for the
contest is 2 p.m.
Present league standings in First
Division play name Varsity in top
position with North Shore following
close behind. Merelomas and South
Burnaby are tied for third spot while
UBC and Rowing Club bring up the
rear.
TOP PLAYERS
In spite of the fact that a number
of top players have left for American
Football, Laithewaite has manageS
to get together a team fit to rival
any Varsity squad in the past.
At the same time the UBC stalwarts
have given a good account of their
style of play, and with a few more
games under their belts should make
a  better showing.
AFTER CHRISTMAS
The turning point will come after
Christmas, when the lost mainstays,
Doug Reid, Bud Spiers, Hillary Wotherspoon, Don Nesbit, and Dave Storey
return to the rugger field.
At such times, things are bound to
happen, for both First Division squads
will have plenty on the ball ready
for display.
INTRAMURAL SCHEDULES
GOLF
Play in groups of four on University course. Supply phone
numbers. Entry deadline October 25, last day to hand in score
November 15.
CROSS COUNTRY
Six man teams ,last day to hand in entries October 29.

NOTICE
A Rowing Club meeting to outline
this year's training, in affiliation with
Vancouver's Rowing Club will be held
Monday, 12:30 in Hut HM 8. Everyone welcome.
Manager, Bill Wynne, will make the
trip to the West Coast city.
The group is scheduled to leave the
C.P.R. pier today at 11 a.m. and upon
arrival at Nanaimo will travel by bus
to Port Alberni.
This year's aggregation will include
six of last year's Thunderbirds: Bill
Bell, Reid Mitchell, Dave Campbell,
John Forsyth, Nev Munro and Jim
McLean.
Three of last year's Chiefs, Bobby
Boyes, Norm Watt and Art Phillips
will also make the trip.
Rounding out the squad will be
three former members of the Inter A
Champion Ryerson quintet, Neil Desaulniers, Ted Rae and John Southcott.
The Island City club looks to be
pretty powerful and will be no cinch
for the 'bird aggregation. Gordie Lynn,
star with the Stacey Senior A club
last year is the powerhouse of the
Aces,
Actual outcome of the game is particularly important in the mind of
coach Pomfret.
"Even though the team will be very
definitely out there to win'', stated
Pomfret, "the thing that I want to
see in all these pre-season games is
how  the  boys work together.
"We are attempting to build up a
team and plan for the future so that
the men will be ready to go by January. That is the principal idea at the
moment."
Soccer XI Seeks Win
From North Burnaby
Determined to snap their
"draw complex", Varsity
roundballers have promised
to make things tough for North
Burnaby in Saturday's Vancouver and district soccer
league fixture on the campus.
With a win and two ties in three
games So far, Coach Davie's charges
have slipped a point behind the
leaders in the race for first place.
The boys are not expecting any pushover on Saturday though, for they have
always had trouble with the Burnaby
eleven.
In addition, several members of the
team will be donating blood during
the next few days, but they still
figure to have enough on the ball to
come  up   with  a  win.
fSIRCE TO SING DUET
WITH U OF W STUDENT
Seattle, Oct. 22—Singing coeds at University of Washington have been all aflutter since it was announced that
one of them will sing a duet with internationally famous
Jan Peerce.
Peerce agreed by wire Tuesday to sing with one of the
girls during his visit in February.
;  Contests will be held to cut the field down to three
,    contestants, from whom Peerce will pick his partner.
SOCCER NOTICE
On Sunday at 2:15 UBC will tangle
with Burrard Lions in an Intermediate league contest at McBride Park,
4th and Bayswater. Team officials
are still in the market for players,
and anyone interested should turn
out on Sunday.
