Within a few days Canada's parliament
will likely be called upon to voice some
opinion on the Canadian Legion's demand
for compulsory military training in the
reserve forces.
Most of our political crystal-ball gazers
agree that there isn't much chance that the
M.P.'s will put the scheme into action. But
the mere fact that the Legion has suggested
it, and that other large organizations and n
number of vocal newspapers have supported
it necessitates an examination of the idea.
The theory, of course, is that the best
way to keep peace is to amass a force strong
enough to scare hell out of all our potential
But the amusing part of the suggestion
is that, in the present case, we have a sneaking suspicion that our potential enemies (the
forces of the USSR we presume) are likely
emitting loud cheers backed by guffaws every
time we increase our defence budget.
The immediate aim of the USSR, in accordance with the best Leninist-Stalinist
theory, would seem to be to knock the props
-out from -under our economy.

Our Big Slock
It is fortunate for the good of the University a§ a whole that there are some who
take more interest in the current War Memorial Gymnasium campaign than do members of UBC's illustrious Big Block Club.
The lettermen, we are sorry to report, have
fumbled the ball badly this week. On Tuesday, they were supported to speak to freshmen on the subject of the "343" pledge. They
didn't quite get around to it.
On Wednesday they were supposed to talk
to freshmen on the subject of "343" pledges.
Brock Ostrom, apparently one of their only
two sources of brain power, fell ill, and the
drive, except for the efforts of one other
man, went ungraciously down the drain.
It shuld be obvious, almost past the point
of comment, that the Big Block Club should
show slightly more energy and interest in the
gym committee's proceedings than has been

Until we begin to fight the enemy on

economic field—we're going to continue to

our guns and tanks and planes (not to mention Bob Bonner's COTC) will sit and gather
taxes while Uncle Joe laughs.
This is just one gopd practical reason
why the M.P.'s should be told that we don't
want any part of the Canadian Legion's madcap schemes, And, at the same time, we
should make it clear to the government that
all its money spent on gilt-edged propaganda

term view of things. Now that most of them
have broken into the charmed circle of big-'
time UBC athletics, maybe ihey figure that
the gym is something out of which they won't
get much personal use.
Maybe they believe that the advantages
of a new gymnasium will go entirely to Big
Blockers of the future.
This "after us the deluge" attitude, unfortunately, is scarcely conducive to the
building of universities, either in thc intellectual or material senes.
We expect that the gym committee will
be prudently silent about the Pig Block Club,
but the gym campaigners at this time must
be strongly tempted to suggest that the club
switch its name to the "Stumbling Block."
Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
When Bill Lambe left the campus to pursue hlB chosen field of
social work, the University Teacher's Training Society lost an able
chairman. The first general meeting of the new year held on Friday
12th, ratified Al Anderson, former
Vice-president to take Bill Lambe's
place on the executive. Jock Den-
holmn was then elected to fill the
position of vice-president. We wel

Trainees to turn out to the gen

Dear Sfr:
A letter published ln your paper
Friday and signed by a Mr. Wilkinson, olaime'd to be informing the
uninformed. 1 cbeqked the sources
which Mr. Wilkinson used in his
'informed" letter.
(1) "Wie writer "quoted" an article Lenta wrote in the "Prole-
taril" in Kay 1MB. The distortion
both as to text mtd as to mailing
left me amazed. The complete text
may be found la "•ReHgton" by V.
I. Lenin, 1888, International Publishers and will also be found in
Lenin's Complete Works.
(2) The writer has also misquoted Article 124 of the Constitution of the USSR. The* Constitution is available in the library. The
meaning attributed to the Article
by Mr. Wilkinson was a flight into
the absurd.
The writer of the letter could
have quoted what tanln wrote In
Novaya Zhizn in December 1905
and yvhich was also reprinted in
Lenin's "Religion.M "The state mus!
not concern Itself with religion;
religious societies must not be
bound to the state. Everyone must
be absolutely free to profess whatever religion he likes or to profess no reMglon—. There must be
no discrimination whatever in the
rights of citizens on religious
grounds. Even particulars concerning the religion of citizens on official documents must be completely done away with". (To save Mr!
Wilkinson the trouble which he
caused me he will find this quote
on page 7.)
Our "informer" should have told
us wthen Lenin wrote his articles
because when the context of time
and place are made known the
meaning takes on clearer form.
One may disagree with Lenin and
what he wrote but one cannot interpret his writings as calling for
Uie persecution of religion or the
destruction of churches. Such tin
Interpretation would be utterly fantastic.

Critic On The Hearth
Beethoven, Bartok, |and Berg! Three
names that deserve to be ranked together
as they were at Tuesday night's concert by
the Juilliard String Quartet.
Opening the concert was the Vancouver
Premiere of the Fourth String Quartet of
Bela Bartok which was given a stunning
performance by the members of the ensemble.
This work is highly complex rhythmically,
highly condensed and developed formally,
highly colored emotionally. There is a richness of texture that springs more from legend
and folk-lore than does the purely subjective
luxuriousness found in the Lyric Suite of
Alban Berg. Although the music is warm
it is the warmth of cool classic marbles, a
Warmth that arises from a concentrated intensity of feeling rather tTian from an overabundance of emotion.
On the other hand, The Lyric Suite is
pure romanticism with none of the classic
sculpturing evident in the Bartok. The emotions here splurge forth without that element
of detachment that is essential to the classic
style. Such words as lovingly, passionately,
desolately, deliriously qualify each of its
six movements. The content is so concentrated
that if it were not for, the passionate sincerity
of the players it might almost have become
garish, a burlesque of such deep-rooted
Both are works of the twenties (Berg
1926, Bartok 1928) when composers were
experimenting  with  Iho .tension   of  sounds.

School of Social Work and to use

the School Of Social Work here
Is one of the best ln Canada. I
would like to point out, however,
that this lecture was not under
the auspices of the School of Social Work and was not Intended to
be directly related to or associated with that school. The family
of the late Senator Bostock provided the University with an endowment for university lectures in
certain specified fields. In the past
when similar lectures have been
given, one by Dr. Keenleyside, one
of our own graduates In History,
and another by Judge Read ot the
World Court, no special mention
was made to the Department of
History or of the Faculty of Law.
However, we were delighted that
Dr, Davidson was able to spend
some time with the students and
staff of the School of Social Work
and to recognize lt ln that way. My
own view and the view of the administration is that In the case of
general university functions, of
which this was one, the main emp
basis should be given to tbe university, and not to any particular
department In It.
Yours sincerely,
N. A. M. MacKenzie.

The massed tone clusters found in the Bartok,
the persistent use of ponticelli bowing (the
twittering of the Berg Allegro Misterioso)
and col legno (hitting the strings with the
back of the bow) are all germane to an
experimental phase of music, a phase during
which all preconceived ideas of instrumental
and vocal writing were discarded scornfully
and all boundaries exceeded for composers
were fleeing the decadent Romanticism of
Wagner and Richard Strauss. Out of the
chaos and wild experimentation have emerged these two pinnacles. Building out ot the
disorder, extracting the best, Berg and
Bartok have emerged as masters worthy of
comparison with the greatest composers of the
It is a frequent saying among lhe advanced modernists in the arts that the general public is always fifty years behind the
truly creative mind. Intellectually the general public may still be limping in the rear
to an extent even greater than the composers estimate. Judging however from last
night's concert, emotionally we are twenty-
five years to the good. Daring programming
was rewarded by genuine response from an
t'udience probably exposing themselves Lo
such strange sounds for the first time. I feel
that the greatest tribute that can be offered

was the prolonged appause of a standing
audience who came as skeptics and left convinced.

As I See It
Whatever the Everyman Theatre
may lack ln the way of plush surroundings Is well made up for ln
the sincerity of the members themselves. Their value lies in, the fact
that they are something more than
a group of people who like to dabble ln the theatre and use it as a
recreation. Rather, they Include
those who have studied the theatre
as a profession and look on it as
such rather than ae a plaything.
Opening their season with Ibsen's
drama, "Ghosts,", they have chosen
a play which Is outdated in theme
but still powerful as theatre. Ibsen
has stressed the problems of
social diseases and human freedoms rather than character, but
produced at the present time the
problems neither shock or surprise
an audience, while the human relationships become the dynamic
part of the play.
In the role or Oswald, the son
whose mind finally collapses as
the result of Inherited disease, Ronald Wilson gave a performance
which had depth and strength, n
adolescent gaunoheness In his rendering heightened the tragic circumstances, although an unforu-
nate cloak he wore ln the first act
Increased the awkwardness to the
point of being ridiculous.
As Mrs. Alvlng, his mother, Joy
-Coghill displayed a restraint and
sensitive understanding for the
role and the play Itself. I felt she
was hampered by Ibsen's thinness
of characterisation and as a result the role lacked a posltivlty
which ls usually evident ln Miss
CoghiU's acting.
Pastor Manders who represents
the blindness of certain orthodox
thinkers of Ibsen's day was played
by John MUllgan who gave the
role a certain noble stupidity. As
actor MUllgan Interpreted Manders, he became an object of pity
rather than hate. The thinking of
the good pastor is almost unbelievable to the modern mind, and Mr.
MUllgan can be forgiven I think
If he'was inclined to slip into caricature.
The role of Reglrta, Oswald's half
sister, hardly gives scope to an
actress, but Patricia Boyle played
'with charm heightened by a lovely
voice, while Jack Murphy was convincingly slimy as her adopted father. The set was excellent, possessing Interesting'design and a
suitably dismal and Victorian atmosphere.
The other adult show, "The Curtain Rlnes," ls an entertaining hit
of fluff with a Pygmalloh-Clnderel-
la plot. The actors all display polish, while Patricia Boyle as the
frumpish old maid turned Into a
glamorous actress gave a particularly delightful performance, mixing poise with a fine sense of comedy. The set I found angular and
harsh. One of the bad attempts at
modern interior design, it lacked
grace and feeling for color.

The English Department production of "The Alchemist" turned out
to be not only one of the most Interesting plays seen for a long
time but also as entertaining and
amusing a piece as could be found.
Presented as a studio production
lt had advantages cjenled those
plays which of necessity must keep
an eye on the ever controlling box
fry Jo-mi Ivttod
office, and ae a result although the
audleuce underwent certain discomforts, they came away with an
experience rarely found in a «otn-
mercial theatre. The discomforts
were two. That Is, the length of
the production, which went Almost
into three hours, and the obscurity
of Ben Jonson's language. To any*
one unfamiliar with the play, the
technical terms ot alchemy aad the
Elizabethan colloquialisms made
the early parts of the play unintelligible. However, in spite of these
things the whole production was
of an excellence which the whole
university can point to with Justifiable pride.
The adaptation of an Elizabethan stage gave an opportunity for
diverse playing spaces, the use of
which added tremendous Ufe and
movement to the whole. The cast
of "The Alchemist" gave performances possessing the sincerity and
freedom of a studio production
and ln some cases a polish beyond
that. Particularly well played were
the roles of Subtle, Face, Dol, Common, Surly and Dame Pliant.
ln this reviewers opinion "The
Alchemist" ls one of the big steps
in Canadian theatre. It ls only re-
grettable that the production did
not last longer than two nights.
