There were more than a few bloodshot eyes in the 8:30
gar-chains this morning, and the 8:30 lecture rooms were a
little emptier than usual. It's going to be the same tomorrow
morning, too.
The reason for all this of course is UBC's most impressive
organized bacchanal, the Mardi Gras Cabaret, which involves
2000 or so students, 1500 or so assorted bottles of booze, and
an unspecified number of pain-wracked invalids.
The invalids are victims of a particularly painful and
pitiless disease known as Multiple Dystrophy, which each year
turns on impressive number of healthy Canadians into suffering, human beings. The victim becomes a mindless near-vegetable. The end result is not pretty. And the disease is incurable.
Medical science, fortunately, is on the trail of a cure, and
the $3000-odd raised through our drunken revels at the Commodore last night and tonight will bring that goal just that
much closer to reality. The cause that Mardi Gras supports is,
as the press releases say, a very worthy one.
But at this point, an interesting question presents itself:
what's happened to that blessed Christian virtue called charity
we used to hear about in Sunday School? More than one
thoughtful student has probably been struck with the irony
of half the university partying for two days, in order that a
number of desperately helpless people might learn to live
Mardi Gras, of course, is only one instance of a general
trend. Bingo for hospital charities, the various Junior League
affairs, the British hospital pools are other examples. They all
demonstrate the same fact: people aren't content to give a
sizeable amount of money to a worthy cause; they want something in return
This is not to say that the virtue of charity has somehow
become extinct in the human race; people are doubtlessly still
as charitable as they were in Biblical times. If the opportunity
presented itself, plenty of people would react as Judas Iscariot
(lid when he flung his coat to a beggar.
But the trouble is that no matter how blessed the act of
flinging a cloak to the beggar may have been, it didn't do
much good. Today's slick, high-powered "charity" campaigns
may be wholly lacking in the simple but noble virtue of charity, but in their brassy, impersonal way, they do far more
actual good than a thousand individual acts of kindness could
possibly do.
It's regrettable and it's hardly Christian, but in today's
complicates] society where thousands need help and the thousands of others who can give it are in no position ta see the
results of their magrtaminity, that's the way it's got to b^t.
Come to the Mardi Geas.
The   Strange   Case   Of
John   Foster   Dulles
The New York Times
Like every Secretary of'State since the war, John Foster Dulles has pulled some lovely
boners, but, unlike his predecessors, Mr. Pullcs has added something new to the art of
diplomatic blundering.
This is the planned mistake. He doesn't stumble into booby traps: he digs them to size,
studies them carefully, and then jumps.
T he common diplomatic
bloomer is usually the result of
ignorance, hastes, imprecision,
bad temper, or having to
choose between hard and difficult courses of action,
' Mr. Dulles has not made this
kind of mistake very often.
He is well-informed. He is the
hardest-working man in Washington. He is patient and precise in extemporaneous speech,
and he has not yet got into
trouble playing question and
answer with the reporters.
His mistakes are of a different variety. They are usually avoidable. They are almost always obvious, and they
are usually made in carefully
prepared statements o r
He wrote into the President's
first State of the Union Message the passaged construed as
"unleashing" Chiang Kai-shek
to invade the China mainland.
He liberated the Communist
satellites first in the Republi-
man party's 1952 foreign affairs
platform at the. Chicago Convention, which he drafted, and
later in several other prepared
He announced that he was
going to make an "agonizing
reappraisal" of American foreign policy if France did not
join the European Defense
Community—this in a formal
statement to the North Atlantic Treaty Council in Paris.
He put into a formal speech
before the New York Council
on Foreign Relations his threat
of "massive retailiation against
the Communist world—a threat
which required a 2,000-word
clarification and has plagued
him ever since.
He issued last month a formal statement describing Goa
on the fringe of India as a
"province" of Portugal—just at
the time when he was planning
a trip to India to patch up our
ragged relations with Prime
Minister Nehru.
And now this week he has
been involved in another controversy because he claimed
that he had three times carried
the nation to the "brink" of
war and scared the Communists
off two of the three times by
threats of atomic retaliation.
The common denominator of
all these things is that the Secretary of State was under no
compulsion to say them and
that, having decided to say
them, he overstated the case.
He has since been forced to
qualify the liberation statements to make clear that he
meant "peaceful liberation;" to
put Chiang Kai-shek back on
the leash; to swallow France's
rejection of the EDC without any "agonizing reappraisal' "; and to make clear that
there would be "massive retaliation" only in response to
some momentous Communist
move that threatened the security of the nation.
He is still standing on his
boast that he has avoided war
three times by threatening atomic retaliation against Manchuria and South China,
though this capital is full of
well-informed men who regard this as a combination of
bad history, bad diplomacy,
and bad manners.
He has made a lifelong study
of the arts of diplomacy, and
has turned Assistant Secretary
of State Carl McCardle into a
personal press agent—yet the
effect of his latest flight into
print had been to emphasize
his weaknesses rather than to
clarify his strength.
This is unfortunate for two
reasons; It blurs Mr. Dulles real
achievements, and it diverts
attention from the remarkably
solid front that has been built
up in both parties for the policy of collective security.
There are differences of opinion between the parties about
how much emphasis to put on
foreign economic aid, and
whether to proceed with the
chain of military agreements
in the Middle East but the
area of agreement is far larger
than the area of disagreement,
and Mr. Dulles is entitled to a
great deal of credit for this extremely ' important development.
In fact, one could almost say
that the biggest foreign policy
issue between Mr. Dulles and
the Democrats today is Mr.
Dulles himself ..The Democrats
have produced no clear alternative to his policies, even in
the Middle East. Nor do they
complain so much about what
he does. But what he says
drives them nuts, and gives
the impression of great division
where very little fundamental
policy division exists.
This, of course, is the way
things usually go in Washington. The really big story here
is that the Republicans are offering a program and a budget that are so New Dealish
and internationalist that Bob
Taft, if he were here, would
feel betrayed.
There is probably not another capital in the world today where the party in power
has offered a program which
meets with such wide-spread
approval from one end of the
political spectrum to the other.
Nevertheless, politicians must
fight, and if they don't have
big things to fight about, they
will fight just as hard about
small things.

Dear Sir,
A few days ago, I came to
your press to announce the
plans of the ASUS for this
term. The next day, what appeared in your paper was what
ASUS is not doing nor contemplating. The result is that instead of the publicity we
sought, we were set back by
your poisonous inventiveness.
I was not much surprised
that you omitted most of what
I told your reporter, but I was
really shocked out of my composure by the new meanings

I would not make a martyr

Guest Analyzes Tory
Election    Defeat
Last-minute loss of Liberal support and insufficient campaign time'were the main reasons advanced by Gowan Guest
of the Young Conservatives for his party's defeat in the recent Vancouver by-election.
Speaking under sponsorship of
the campus Conservative Club,
Gowan analyzed the election results of Vancouver-Centre riding.
He showed how Premier Bennett's sudden decision to hold
the election in January instead
of in the spring forced a brief
and hectic campaign on the Conservatives and frightened the
Liberals out of running at all.
Political unknown Douglas
Jung was nominated and enthusiastic YPC members worked in
pairs canvassing the" district—
in Mr. Guest's words "leap
frogging from house to house—
always in shouting distance of
one another in case someone
had a Socred knife to stick in
his back."
The day before election Socred
and Tory chances were evenly
matched. "We'd have tossed a
coin" said Mr. Guest.
Early election returns quickly dimmed this optimism. Polling difficulties were partly to
blame,    intimated    Mr.    Guest.

Ike Tie Sat
AMS Elections are coming up,
and the Tie Bar, as a public
service to UBC students, herein
offers its fearless predictions of
the great event.
(1) President Eisenhower will
not run.
Nixon won't run
(2) Richard
(3) Ron Longstaffe probably
(4) Buss Hudson will run for
President of the Men's Athletic
Directorate. So will Bill Essel-
mont. One of them will win.
(5) At least six candidate*
will campaign for "greater efficiency".
(6) Next year's council will
be no more efficient.
(7) AMS President Ron Bray
will graduate from Law School.
(8) That boy will go far.
(9) Possibly as far as Whalley.
(10) Notre Dame will upset
MIT 27-13 in Saturday's tilt.
(11) All candidates will wear
ties when making speeches. This
is to impress the electorate
with their efficiency, respect-
ability and diligence.
(12) Unfortunately, not all
candidates will be wearing ties
from the Tie Bar (712 West
Pender). A Tie Bar tie whispers
to.one and all the charm, taste
and intelligence of the wearer,
and no candidate should be
without one.
(13) This is unlucky. Better
skip it.
(14) The Tie Bar candidates
will probably make a clean
sweep of the election. This
should be no surprise to anyone;
poor taste should not be tolerated in Students' Council.
(15) Engineers, who don't
wear ties, will get nowhere in
this election. Smarten up, boys.
(16) More students will vote
than did last year. This will be
partially due to the fact that
there are more students.
(17) The Betas will enter
everyone but their housemother.
(18) The    Zeies    will    enter
their   housemother.
(19) She'll   probably   win.
(20) Election or no election,
the Tie Bar (712 West Pender)
will continue to offer the tastiest selection of ties in town, at
a price even a Teacher Training
studont can afford. They're the

Methuselah   Plot
In his preface to "Back to Methuselah" Shaw writes:
"I—go back to the legend of the Garden of Ed,en, I exploit the eternal interest of the phlosopher's stone which
enables men to live for ever." Inspired by the philosophy
of Creative Evolution, very popular when he was young,
and according to which man evolves and progresses only
as he desires and wills to do so, Shaw develops the thesis,
in "Back to Methuselah," that the troubles of the world
today are due to the fact that man does not live long
enough to acquire the wisdom by which to govern himself. He insists that if only men had the capacity to imagine
the benefits of longer life, to desire to live longer, and to
will to do so they could in fact create a longer span of
Starting in the Garden of Eden where Eve wills that
life shall continue upon the face of the earth, but where
Adam, afraid of eternity, decides to limit his life to a
thousand years, Shaw finds life much too boring to endure
for so long a time, and by inventing killing and fighting he
manages very successfully to reduce its duration.
By 1920, after World War I, the lowest ebb is reached.
Man's life is fleeting and long before he has acquired the
wisdom to govern himself he is dead. Matter has completely
subjected the spirit. And then, at that moment, the Barnabas brothers, a clergyman and a scientist, propound a new
gospel—that if only man had the imagination, the desire,
the will, he could live longer. They set the desireable age
as 300 years. By then they believe man could acquir some
of the wisdom necessary to make life worth livng;
The parlour-maid overhears them talking, so does a
young clergyman visiting in the house. The seed takes
root, for in 2170 A.D., lo, those two same young people
are discovered still alive, at the ripe ages of 283 and 274.
The thing has happened!
From there Shaw jumps to 3000 A.D., when the painful struggle between the long-lived and the short-lived
is at its height. But the childish foolishness of the shortlived is obvious, they haven't a chance of survival. This
he proves in the last part of the play, in 31,920 A.D., when
men and women are born out of eggs, looking about 17
years old, and live once again for centuries and centuries,
pain, disease, and war have disappeared. At that point
there is only one thing further to look forward to—the
complete conquest of matter, of all things material, the
triumph of the .spirit, the point at which man, "presses on
to the goal of redemption from the flesh, to the vortex
freedom from matter, to the whirlpool in pure intelligence."
In "Back to Methuselah" Shaw makes his most profound statement of his own religious philosophy—but
being Shaw, he can only do so in terms of wit and satiric
comment. It is difficult to come right out and say that
"Back to Methuselah" is a comedy, and yet it is equally
difficult to call it by any other name. Shaw himself calls
it a "Metabiological Pentateuch."
THE PAST and the future come together
on the set of "Back to Methuselah." Left to
right: Gay Newitt, a daughter in 3000 A.D.;
Danica d'Hondt, Eve; Marion Poggemiller,
a woman in 3000 A.D.; and Patti Browne,
the wife in 3000 A.D.
Methuselah Players
Widely Experienced
In the monstrous cast of 43
in Shaw's "Back To Methuselah" playing Friday and Saturday nights as a climax to
the Shaw Festival, it is almost
impossible to single out any
few as "leads".
Each member of the cast
plays a significant role in the

five act play which contains
the summary of Shaw's theological belief that man can
and must extend his life on
earth by the concentration of
his will.
Shaw begins his argument
by the presentation of Adam
and Eve and the serpent in
the Garden of Eden scene.
Adam, who is Shaw's interpretation of man, is played
by Rodney Eve who arrived
on campus this year from
England where he was serving with the RAF. Playing opposite him as Eve is Danica
d'Hondt, recently of Montreal
and England, who gained
much acting experience while
with the Montreal Repertory
Theatre and Mountain Playhouse in Montreal.
Sharon Scadding, the serpent, is not new to UBC audiences and has taken leading
roles in "Major Barbara" and
recently in "The Trojan Woman "
The roles of Burge and Lu-
bin, the two contrasted politicians, the former blustering,
and .self-confident and the latter rather oily and steeped in
classical philosophy, are
played by Peter Smith, instructor of Latin at UBC. and
John Bovey, who is making
his first appearance on the
campus stage.
Janice B e a i r s t o, well-
known in campus drama,
plays two roles in the play,
the first as the illiterate ,and
timid   parlor   maid  who   de
cides that the one life she
has is for living. As the
haughty Mrs. Lutstring, she
is the first woman to reach
the age of 300.
The roles of the young and
foolish curate and later the
archbishop, the first man to
live 300 years, are played by
veteran campus actor, John
Making first appearances
before campus audiences are
Dale Johnson as Burge-Lubin,
obviously a combination of
Burge and Lubin: Michael
Audain as the wise and respected Confucius; David
Hughes who plays a frustrated and misunderstood elderly
gentleman and John Water-
house, his guide.
The part of Zoo, the childish "youngster" of 50, is
played by Caroline Bell, and
the Prime Minister by Richard  Irwin.
The rr>le of Pygmalion is
played by well-known campus actor, Peter Brockington.
The embodiment of the
philosophy of the play is
heard in the words of the
ghost of Lilith, played by Barbara Schwenk in the longest and last speech of the play.

For Creative Writers
Constructive criticism is
hard to find—ask any student
who has written a poor essay
or finds his friends taking
that 'backward step'. The
creative writer suffers most
from this neglect. Any embryo Capote, Wouk Frost or
Nash who has worried a literary effort into being knows
the abyss of doubt that lies
between its conception and
its birth into the reading
world. How can the creative
writer's doubts be best resolved? The answer is at hand.
An Undergraduate Writers'
Workshop will be organized
this term on the campus with
the Idea of supplying a forum
for free criticism among creative writers. Under the guidance of members of the English Department, who are
themselves creative writers,
members of the workshop will
be encouraged to submit their
work for discussion and criticism by fellow undergraduates and staff members. It is
felt that the workshop will
supply writers with the impartial view of their work
that is often so valuable and
will also give the individual
writer a better idea of what
material is being produced by
his contemporaries.
In the past an organization
known as 'Author's Anonymous', created by veteran
students, existed on campus
for the same function but its
charter members dispersed
and the active work of the
club slowed to a complete
halt. Many undergraduates
now feel the need for such an
organization and with the
added impetus of staff guidance it is hoped that the new
club will grow to strong permanence.
Meetings of the UWW will
be held one evening a week.
They will be relatively informal and will be presided
over by a member or mem-
bers of the English Depart-
. ment who  will act as chair
men and will also comment
and criticize. Many scripts
will be mimeographed beforehand and distributed so
that both students and staff
will have foreknowledge of
the work under discussion.
The UWW has not been conceived solely as a 'sweatshop'
however. Meetings will be set
aside for social gatherings off
the campus so that members
may 'live it up' in whatever
way their creative imaginations decide. Nor will criticism be the only function of
the Workshop. Members whose
writing reaches a satisfactory
standard will be guided in
'submitting their work to suitable '.- publications:   from   the
campus magazine, the 'Raven',
to Canadian and American
literary magazines and slicks.
Applications for membership art now being accepted.
Everyone who applies for
membership in the Workshop
is expected to be a writer, not
just a person 'interested' in
writing. For this reason eech
application submitted must
be accompanied by a sample
of the applicant's work. The
samples may be short stories,
articles, plays, radio scripts or
poetry. The deadline for such
submissions is January 24 and
scripts should be left with Mr.
Melvin LaFollete. English

Summer in Europe with the C.O.T.C.
Among the many benefits available to members of the
Canadian Officers' Training Corps, one of special significance
is the opportunity in their third phase of practical training
to elect service with the regular Canadian forces in Europe.
^Selection for Europe is based on high academic and military
standing, and in 1955 four members of the U.B.C. Contingent,
C.O.T.C., were chosen for the signal honour.
Here are the comments of one of the four, Lieutenant
C. T. M. (Ted) Hadwen, Royal Canadian Infantry Corps, who
graduated from the University last spring with Second Class
Honours in History and who is now taking post-graduate
studies at St John's College, Cambridge:
We who were fortunate enough to be posted to the 1st
Canadian Infantry Brigade Group in Germany were assigned
to duty with units of our own corps. Dan Harrison of the
Royal Canadian Corps of Signals went to the Signals Platoon
of the 2nd Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Regiment; Mark
de Weerdt, Royal Canadian Artillery, also went to the 2nd
R.C.H.A.; John Loewen of the Royal Canadian Engineers
was attached to the 2nd Field Squadron, R.C.E.; and I served
with the 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light
Each of us was employed throughout the summer as a
sub-altern on the same basis as junior officers of the regular
army. We were welcomed as full members into the units we
joined and were expected to carry out all the responsibilities
that our appointments demanded.
Along with the regular troops, the C.O.T.C. officers
found the summer training period in Germany invaluable.
To us. the two outstanding events of the period were the
field exercises at Sennelager in June and at Soltau in August,
where realistic conditions of war were successfully simulated. Topical realism was achieved on a number of occasions
when the effects of atomic warfare were taken into account.
The summer inevitably provided, in addition to sound
training, opportunities to appreciate the many attractions of
Continental Europe. Officers of the C.O.T.C. were free to
travel on numerous weekends and during one full week of
leave. With special military rates for travel on German
trains, all parts of West Germany were particularly accessible. The cathedral city of Cologne on the Rhine and its
thriving sister city, Dusseldorf, were but a few hours away
from the permanent Canadian camps. Those of us from
U.B.C. however, ranged as far afield as Rome, Innsbruck,
Paris, London, and Copenhagen.
At the end of our time in Europe, we all felt that we had
passed a most agreeable summer as well as one of great
educational value in all respects.
NOTE: The final date for enrolment in the COTC during
this Session is rapidly approaching. All who are interested,

Socred Red China
Bill  Meets   Defeat
Social Credit Mock Parliament bill advocating recognition of Red China went down
to a narrow defeat Thursday
under Liberal and Conserva-
tiv fire.
Howard Johnston, Agriculture II, in presenting the bill,
declared, "the time has long
since passed when the people
of Canada would follow someone else's lead in international
Liberals brought in an
amendment suggesting that
Canada   enter   into   negotia
tions with U.S. and Britain to
have the Nationalist Chinese
seat in the U.N. abolished and
Communist China, Japan, and
Formosa admitted to the U.N.
Ken MacKenzie, Commerce I, suggested the amendment, stating, "the position of
China in the United Nations
is unique." <
In debate the other parties
maintained that the amendment was a separate bill and
it was ruled out of order by
Speaker Ron Basford, Law 3.
One of the highlights of the
controversy came when Mio-
mir Bakich, Graduate Studies,
left his fellow Social Creditors and deserted to the ranks
of the Conservatives under
cries of "Back to the Tories".
In supporting the bill the
first L.P.P. speaker said "we
support the bill as it stands
but we do have reservations
concerning certain resolutions."
He continued, saying that
any implication that Formosa
is not a part of China will
only lead to further disintegration.
Further Socred speakers
said, "It would be better to
iron out our differences at a
table rather than on a battlefield," and "that Canada
should welcome this opportunity fpr a voice in world
Liberal speakers continued
to lambaste the government.
"It is a shame that Lester B.
Pearson should be replaced
with these vaudeville evangelists," one said.
Conservative speakers also
blasted the bill. The new Conservative member from the
government side of the house,
renegade Miomir Bakich, declared, "What are we going
to profit by recognizing Red
China? We will only have
new  agressions,"  he  said.
Prime Minister Mel Smith
summed up saying, "Recognizing a country is in no way
recognizing their policy; it is
just opening one's eyes to its
The vote was taken to Tory
screams for recruits from the
Social Credit benches. The
CCF and the LPP supported
the government bill. Liberals
and Conservatives voted
against it, barely winning the
day, 21-20.
