against Communist oppression.
The youths, it was reported,
were imprisoned until they
reached 18 years of age when
they could be legally executed.
No report, however, has been
received by the Canadian government concerning the BBC's statements as yet. When Opposition-
Leader Pearson questioned External Affairs Minister Green
about the shocking report, Mr.
Green replied that he. could
neither deny nor confirm the
report about the alleged executions.
If the report is true it can be
surmised that the petitions which
thousands of Canadian university
students signed were of no avail.
The petitions, begun by UBC,
were an appeal to Premier
Khrushchev to spare the lives of
150  young  revolutionists.
It can only be hoped by the
thousands of Canadian student^
who joined in the plea for mercy;
that the tragic report is false:
The Ubyssey will carry further
news on the report as soon as
confirmation is received.
If White and his lackeys succeed in this bloodless coup, they
will have the opportunity,
through this paper, to propagandize their way into ultimate
power for the forseeable future.
And the only way' to stop this
invasion is to get some strong,
able students to oppose this
radical group at the polls.
The student body is its own
best; defense. If only a few good

Canadian Communist Party
leader Tim Buck weathered a
storm of abuse from a Brock
lounge audience yesterday while
speaking on world disarmament.
The packed house greeted
most of the remarks made by
Buck with jeers and catcalls.
The stage area was littered with
paper bags, fruit and other
articles thrown at the speaker
by the irate students.
Although the audience was
Somewhat unruly for the occasion, observers pointed out that
the • demonstration was much
quieter than that when Mr.
Buck visited the UBC campus
five years ago.
Foreseeing some unpleasant
occurrence, the Council attempted although without success, to
keep the crowd off certain areas
of the balcony. .!■
However, Mr. Buck, spoke
over the noise of the crowd, giving his opinions on the need for
disarmament, the me'ttods
whereby it may be accomplished and what it would mean to
the nations of the world.
Mr. Buck stated that total disarmament under United Nations
control and inspection must be
accomplished immediately for
the health and safety of everyone.
He quoted a report from a
Congress subcommittee which
stated that in the event of war
the southern part of Canada
would be devastated by nucleur
missiles which, missing their
target, would land in Canada.
The speaker told of the proposal to disarm that is before
the U.N. He pointed out that
Canada is one member of a ten-
nation committee set up to study
the  possibilities.
The Communist leader said
that Canada has a chance to
exert an influence out of all
proportion to its population and
U.N. representation. He stated
that Canada must decide if the
Canadian delegate is to be an
active advocate of total disarmament.
"The world contest between
the socialist societies and the
capitalist societies is changing
form—it is now an economic
competition," he said.
The CCP leader said nations
of the world must allocate more
of their resources to giving assistance to underdeveloped countries.
He said the western nations
can't spend great amounts for
armaments and still give aid to
needy countries. The speaker'
pointed out that twelve years
spending by the U.S. has reduced the spending power of tha^
dollar and created a debt.
The problem, facing our governments is how capitalist countries can give aid on tfis scale-
that   socialist   countries   ro,  he-
During the question period
the speaker was asked to comment on the reports of execu-'
tions of young people in Hungary.
In reply Buck said that these
were only rumours and that the
Hungarian government had der
nied the occurrence of arty such
executions He pointed out that
both the British and Canadian
governments have refused to
comment on the incidents.
Q.—Why has Russia disallowed aerial surveys?
A.—The proposal  means the
inspection   and   control   of disarmaments ... not armaments.-
Q.—How can disarmament be
enforced  without arms?
A.—A UN police force would
carry out regulations.
Q.—Would U.S. and the Soviet
unite to fight Asian countries?
A.—The conflict is not nationalities but social systems. Socialist countries will succeed by
uniting with the underdeveloped
Mr. Buck stated that Canada
can  aid her own economy and
aid other countries by changing
her trade policies. He said that
trade has been concentrated on

ft is not a comforting thought to see the principles of
democracy held in such contempt as displayed Tuesday in the
Brock lounge by Tim Buck and the communistic element in his
"aurJience. The idealogy of Communism was presented by Mr.
&ick, and the social attitude of'Communism was displayed by
Jus audienee.

jjpd by far the worst, those belligerent, arrogant and hypo-
fritk;ai individuals who displayed not only good pitching arms,
ut a desire, to follow the example of the Russian government
jp.its.supression of freedom of speech; second, those individuals
jjwho sat full of complaisance,, adding fuel to the first group by
^displays of laughter; the third group is composed -of those
people who disagree with what is going on, but rather than
_g£t fnvolyed simply ignore the circumstances.
"I disagree with what you say, but to my death I defend
your right to say it," is certainly meaningless on this campus.
Growing up is a difficult thing for. all of us, but by the
time we reach university level, the childish instincts suc.h as
lhe desire to hurt others When they disagree with us should be
Jong discarded.

of more than passing interest to
The subject of Disarmament is
one which is receiving a great
deal of attention in the world
today, particularly by world
statesmen in and out of the
uSaited Nations, and would also,
one would think, be not without
interest for students.
A combination of these two in
the form of Mr. Tim Buck speaking on Canada and World Disarmament certainly proved ir-
resistable to many students on
Tuesday when they crowded
Brock Hall fo the doors.
It is unfortunate that these
sqtme students, with the opportunity of hearing the Communist
attitude to the question of Disarmament, preferred hot to listen, but rather to use the opportunity to throw apple cores, unintelligible remarks and rolled
up newspapers at Mr. Buck.
May I remind them that the
Communist position on Disarmament may mean the difference
between whether these students,
together with the rest of us, are
to live or die?
As such, it is not to be taken
Did these students, I wonder,
feel that they were striking a
blow for Democracy or the Free
World by behaving in this manner? If so, it was not very brave
of them—at least four hundred
against one.
Presumably they are all opposed to. Communism. Do they
know what it is? It was around
before the Hungarian revolt, before the Second World War.
Who lost on Tuesday? Not Tim
Buck, who expected little else
and is used to such situations.
Not Vic Anderson either,. who
acted as chairman. I am sure the
meeting was a valuable experience for him and stiffened his
determination. I suggest the
students lost. The ones who came
to jeer and the ones who came
to hear.
I wonder how many of the
students at Tuesday's meeting
read the poem by Earle Birney,
published in the Ubyssey a few
days ago. I mean the one that

high-school land, dead-set in

"My*dear young man, you are
not old enough to remember
when men like Lyall and Mur-
chison were not considered fit
to lick the dust off the boots of
a curate."
"I should like to get my heel
into   their mouths   (the clergy)
and sc-r-runch it round."
"Huxley did not at first take
very kindly to the evolution
theory. In days gone by he had
written a slashing review
against the Vestiges, and Darwin's Origin was along the same
lines. But when he saw that
evol.utjon would afford him an
excellent means with which to
vent his spite on the clergy, he
accepted it though only guardedly at first—'subject to the production Of. proof that physiological species may be produced by
selective breeding'—a proof that
he never considered to have
been forthcoming even to the
end of his days."

was  the universal  sway which

A well known physician in Vienna remarked to him.  'You are;

Darwin is true. We have got a
longway beyond that stage here.
His theory is now our common
starting point."

A leading article urged the
Government (of England to reconstruct the laws of this country, so that they would assist
the fittest to survive.
"In 1866 after the disastrous
termination of the war with
Prussia, the Austrian parliament

"Christianity is the reverse of
the principle of selection. If the

Dear Editor,
I was extremely disappointed
with the conduct of the audience
at Mr. Tim Buck's speech, Tuesday, February 2. Whistling, excess yelling, throwing paper
sacks and oranges is'poor and
discourteous and above all
dangerous in so far that this
reflects a type of audience that
is close minded and dogmatic It
was this principle that bothered
me. I do not care whether or not
one agrees with Mr. Buck, I am
particularly concerned about the
individuals who purposely shouted and yelled because -they
thought to be 100 per cent correct and thought Mr. Buck to be
100 per cent wrong.
How can this type of attitude
better and enlarge a democracy?
Obviously, it cannot, however,
we must" remember this.- We
must question ourselves and
think rationally, or we will remain in a standstill.
I learned something from Mr.
Buck, especially his point on disarmament. I am not afraid to
learn something from a Communist or any other person.
I hope people think this over.
Remember the audience, most of
them, displayed their ignorance
by yelling and shouting and letting their emotions over-ride
them. They did not stop to think,
listen, nor reason. This action
is dangerous, for it is thinking
based on emotion, not reason.

Dear Sir,
The students of the Sopron
Undergraduate Society would
like to express their thanks to the
Student Communist Party for the
last issue of the "Communist
Viewpoint." The artcle titled,
"The evidence" could not have
been published, in a more opportune moment than on the eve the
BBC news item about the execu-,
tions in Hungary. The "Communist Viewpoint" unwittingly
brought this question to the surface, in such a time when their
parent organization behind the
Iron Curtain probably would
have preferred the deepest possible silence about it.
We are certainly curious
whether it was a deviation from
party line or only plain stupidity
on the part of the local Communists.
If in the future they will keep
up this type of work they can
always count on our gratitude.
The wrath of their Moscow
leaders undoubtedly outweighs
this local expression of gratitude,
We were also accused by them
of creating diversion when the
question of peaceful coexistence
should be of primary interest,
and with fostering the cold war.
This accusation, we feel could
be better applied to the latest
speech of Mr. Khrushchev about
Yours truly,
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Contrary to the belief of the
comman man of the campus, we
of Fort Camp do not hold ourselves aloof from Acadia. Such
vanity would cramp us. : Here
is our credo, in form so simple
as to be compelling. We believe
everyone is equal regardless of
race, color, or dwelling. Despite
our cultured environment, we
sometimes act uncouth. As when
we see a maiden possessing
charm of shapely limb and tooth'.
In giving vent our spleen, we do
excell, the chaps at bold Acadia.
Truth to tell, they are quite
pleasant types, but tepid. Not intrepid. Our greater depth of
feeling will be put to proof. This
coming Friday, when in cheering,
Fort Camp will raise the Gym
roof. We challenge you, Acadia.
Show your spirit. Come out on
Friday next. To be trite, "Let's
r-r-r-eally hear it."
The Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Ori Tuesday noon in Brock I
had the misfortune of witnessing
one of the worst displays of bad
manners possible. I went with' a
mind to disprove for myself Tim
Buck's idealogy. I did not need
a lunch bag, an apple core or a
paper airplane. It is impossible
for me to understand how supposedly intelligent university
students would need these props.
Our democracy is based on freedom of speech, so let the man
speak, regardless of what he has
to say. We may disagree, but
surely there are better ways of
expressing our ideas than with
an apple core.
As I have no political leanings,
my only plea is that UBC audiences grow up.

The problem of student discipline on this campus was highlighted by the infantile methods used by many students to-
protest against statements made by CPC leader Tim Buck
this week. (There is some doubt as to whether these students
were protesting or simply using the event as an opportunity
to display their immaturity.)
It says in the AMS constitution that Students' Council
shall have disciplinary powers over students regarding "any
deemed unbecoming a student of the University."
It is obvious that the throwing of misguided missiles at
any campus speaker is "besavior unbecoming a student."
And, although council took certain preliminary precautions, they did nothing to discipline the guilty individuals.
There were at least six councillors in various parts of the
lounge and none of them took any acton.
On the occasion of a half-eaten apple narrowly missing the
speaker, the thrower was only a few feet from Executive
Member John Madden.
On being reminded that it was his duty to keep such
actions under control, he shrugged and said the task was
Undoubtedly, he was right. Any action would probably
have resulted in a riot.
This proves without question that some other method of .
enforcement must be devised.
Some student councillors have stated that students should
be mature enough to go undisciplined.
They have now proved without question that a good percentage of them are not.
It is time then, for the new discipline committee of the
council to look this issue straight in the face and to produce
some effective disciplinary techniques.
A related discipline problem was brought up at the council
meeting Monday night in the report of the Brock Card Room
The report recommended that the room be opened for a
limited time each day and that better garbage disposal facilities be provided.
The qommittee also suggested that the condition of the
room be reviewed February 21 and that the room be closed
if not kept clean. y
If the card players are evicted, the space will be turned
«ver to some other organization.
The report was approved.

A more serious matter was discovered by the committee.

If some solution is not found soon, there is little doubt
that the administration of this university will take it upon
themselves to discipline students.
UBC students have a very privileged position in being able
to discipline themselves; but if some action is not taken soon
there is every possibility that this privilege will be taken

long enough. «If they are not going to enforce their own regulations they shpuld either repeal them or hand the task of

Lily pond Docks Exposed
As Vice-I
The Lilypond docks are a festering sore on the campus,
torn by gangland strife, rival unionism, crime, vice and cor^
This was reveaied to-day to
your Ubyssey reporter in a series of interviews held with men
in key positions. For reasons of
personal safety these men have
to remain anonymous.
"The waterfront is a cesspool," one man said. "It's as
much as your life is worth to
speak against the established order. Vice is everywhere."
"The waterfront stinks," another agreed.
These reports were confirmed by the Ubyssey with chemical
analysis of the water at the
Lilypond docks. These tests revealed a terrifically high pollution count . . . only another
instance of how filth has permeated the whole of the waterfront structure.
Prime movers of the waterfront and powers constantly to
be reckoned with are the two
sprawling giants seeking to keep
the Lillypond docks fast in their
filthy grip of crime. These are
the International Brotherhood
of Redshirts, Slipsticks and Pot
tossers Local 99>9 and the rival
brotherhood of Blueshirts, Dung-
thumpers and Darndancer International, local 2.
The jurisdictional dispute has
raged for several months now,
often breaking out into displays
of open violence. Tactics such
as this hearken one back to the
old Marlon Brando films.
But this isn't any movie.
This is life.
The most appalling aspect of
the whole mess is that to date
the authorities have completely
ignored the obvious threat to
women and children on the Campus.

A Vital B.C. Industry
Harvests Crop of Jobs
Ubyssey Features Writer
Forest industry accounts for
one dollar out of every two
earned in the province of B.C.
Timber is a crop and the
harvest is jobs. Although forestry, the first industry, is now
also the major B.C. industry,
it is far from being static.
There is a great need for train-,
ed- men to assist and direct the
expanding and developing industry.
UBC's Faculty of Forestry is
barely ten years old. Before
1946 students interested in Forestry took Arts or Engineering
until their final year. Then, in
1946, Forestry was made an
adjunct of the Faculty of Applied Science as the Department of Forestry. In 1950 the
Faculty of Forestry was created, indicating a recognition of
the growing importance of Forestry in British Columbia.
Students and staff^of the Faculty of Forestry at Sopron
University came to Canada on
the invitation of the Canadian
government after the Hungarian Revoltuion of October 1956.
'^The Faculty became a part of
UBC in September 1951 by
joining the Faculty of Forestry
\ as the. Sopron Division. With
the addition of the Hungarian
students, Forestry doubled to
approximately 140 students.
To become a forester requires intensive training. At
least five years of university
training are needed as well as
practical experience. It is understandable that foresters do
not like to be confused with
forest rangers. Both need a
great deal of practical experience; however, the forest ran- .
ger trains approximately one
After completing First Year
Arts, .the forestry student takes
four years training in the Faculty of Forestry. Each year
has a full timetable of over 30
hours per week of lectures, and
labs. Nine or more courses are
taken each year. Long hours
of studying and active participation in university life create
a full schedule for most Forestry students.
The individual student can
choose electives according to
the particular phase of Forestry in which he is interested.
The main fields of technical
Forestry are Forest Management, Forest Business Admin- ,
istration, Forest Harvesting,
Forest Products and Wood
Technology, Forest Pathology,
Forest Entomology and Wildlife Management.
All options contain courses
dealing with botany, mathematics, chemistry, physics and

graduate may join the Association of British Columbia Foresters. The Association was
formed to regulate the professional conduct in B.C. and to
establish   the   legal  status   of
the profession. Before being'
accepted, the applicant must
write a sufficient thesis.

John Bunyan Tale:
Scene-Near Haney
A tree fell on a Forester
Out in the woods one day.
The other lads from UBC
Had shoved him in the way.
They said, "He's not a drinker,
Or an athlete or a brain,
He's a lousy pseudo-artsman—
On our Faculty, a stain!
"He wouldn't buy a greenshirt,
Wouldn't kill an engineer,
Wouldn't boat-race 'gainst the Pub.,
(Called it lousy, stinkin' beer,)
"Wouldn't raid the Aggie turkerys,
Or even dye the lily pond,
He's a lousy pseudo-artsman,
And of them we are not fond."
But the Forester rose up in wjrath
And chid his fellow greenies,
"The only things for you," he said,
"Are little freshman beanies."
"I'm a clean-souled son of the forest,
Bred from the aspen and the pine,
And I'll live 'neath the boughs and the open sky,
In the one home I'll call mine."
So he turned and stalked into the forest,
And they looked at his green-clad back.
They looked at the tree they had felled on him,
It was split by a mighty crack.
They transferred from forest to campus,
And few of them ever returned.
They went back to their books  and their studies,
And  they learned,  and they  learned,  and  they
Motto Has
A Purpose
The intriguing and suggestive motto above belongs to
the Forest Club, the only organization on campus which
serves both as a club and as
an  undergraduate society.
. The motto, we have been
informed, means, "Don't Let
Down," and the Foresters do
their best to live up to their
One main function of this
club-cum-society is organizing
social events. It holds a "Slash-
burn" two weeks after registration at the Research Forest
Camp near Haney. This bash
is uninhibited by the presence
of the fair sex, as none have
evidenced a desire to become
foresters, and the boys test
their strength and skill with
axe and saw, put on some
rather ribald skits, sing songs,
tell tall-tales, and celebrate the
end of another successful summer.
Two more events are held,
the semi-formal "Woodchop-
pers Ball" and the hard times
affair they call the "Cut". All
that leaves is the most important one of all, a banquet
where students meet representatives of industry and
graduating year men get their
graduation rings.
Great sportsmen, foresters
show up in every intermural
competition. At present they
stand sixth in intermurals, and
hold second place among the
Another important aspect of
Forest Club activities is that
represented by their Research
Committee. This group now
has sixteen research notes to
its credit, from work done on
its own and from publication
of work done by graduate and
post graduate students.
The Education Committee
spreads forestry information
amongst the high schools of
the province. Club members
each year give talks at city
high schools as part of vocational guidance programme.
The Forest Club also acts as
a liason between the students
and professional representatives of government and industry. It brings in speakers

B.C., N.A.
U.B.C. "Foresters have published the first comprehensive
tet of forestry information of
its kind in North America.
The need for such a publication was recognized by members of UBC's Forest Club in
1950. During the succeeding
two terms a Research Committee of the Club gathered a
mass of basic information to
be used  in the handbook.
In 1952 a Handbook Committee revised and expanded
the original material. The committee met regularly during
1952-53 term learning editorial
procedure and selecting, writing, editing and proof reading
the material.
Costs of the first edition,
published in 1953, were met
by special grants from the forest .: industry, advertising and
advance sales.
Financial support given. by'
industry assured successful
publication even before the
handbook went to press.
The second edition, like the
first, was published by the staff
and students, of the Faculty of
Forestry. Revision was co-ordinated by the Handbook Committee of the Forest Club. Forestry students spend many
long, and sometimes frustrating hours on their self-appointed task.
The handbook was compiled
mainly as a service to foresters
and forest industry of B.C. but
has been sold to professional
foresters throughout the world.
It is intended as a ready reference for the forester in the
field, and is not produced for
The most notable factor of
the publication is the close cooperation between students
and faculty.

Acres Important
Ubyssey Features Writer
University Forest has been transformed from a wild virgin
woodland to an intensively managed area.
H. R. MacMillan predicted in 1954 that the University Research Forest would prove to be the most influential 10,000
acres in B.C. Today, both a resident forester and a research
forester work there full-time.
UBC obtained the forest through efforts of the B.C. government and the Forest Industries of B.C. Provincial Government
donated the land while the Forest Industries supplied capital.
UBC organized and directed the work.
Located just south of Pitt Lake and a few miles from the
town .of Haney, the University Forest is seven miles long and
two and one-half miles wide. It consists of approximately
10,000 acres of land and a few small lakes.
The need for a forested area in which to train students -in
the practical and technical phases was recognized in. the late
thirties. -   - ;    -
The camp, built in 1953, is situated on a point jutting into
Loon Lake, the largest and most central of the 14 lakes. It is
able to accommodate 70 students and faculty with icabins, a
dining hall, guest house, recreation hall and administration
The forest became B.C.'s first certified tree farm in 1954.
It was at this time that MacMillan said, "This, the first certified
tree farm in British Columbia, will probably prove to be the
most influential 10,000 acres in the province." Since 1958 a
small nursery has developed to supply 20,000 trees each year
for planting in the forest.
The aim of the forest is to provide a well-managed, self-
supporting forest to be used for research, recreation and training. Revenue from the logging operations in the forest supports
the research work and the construction of roads, bridges and
Future emphasis will shift from the development of roads
and buildings to more intensive forest management and research. But first a good road system is required to make the
whole area accessible, especially for protection against forest
Once the main road system is completed, more effort will be
spent tree planting, thinning young timber stands, salvaging
dead trees and harvesting old timber. A small sawmill may
also be built in the area for research and demonstration.
The Forest comprises the research program of the Faculty
of Forestry. It is the laboratory in which studies on forest
insects and diseases, tree growth, soils and many other problems
.are studied.
Third-year Forestry students spend one month at the
University Forest. There they are given an intensive course on
practical foresty work to supplement experience gained at
summer jobs.     »
Because of its area, variety of forest types and topography,
the forest serves for practical forest training. The students
learn mapping, road location, timber cruising, soil and tree
culture. The camp period is fully occupied with field work
during the day and calculations and reports during the evening.
The 10,000 acres supply timber, research information and
well-trained foresters.
outstanding scientists, not only
forest pathologists and entomologists, but also other specialists in fields such as meteorology, physiology, ecology,
soil science and insect pathology, to name a few. Close cooperation between this group
and the staff of the present
Forestry Branch, which has
been strengthening its scientific basis in recent years, is not
the least of the expected benefits.
It is certain that the new department will expand substantially. How soon and to what
extent will depend upon appropriations, and the personnel •
available. Growth is likely to
be gradual and sustained. In
any case, expansion will mean
continued and probably increased attention to basic research needed by the provinces
and industry to raise the level
of their husbandry of Canadian
forests. It will also mean increasing opportunities for forestry graduates interested in
research and should result in
increasing emphasis on graduate studies in forestry and the
related sciences in the Canadian universities.
Viewed in a practical way,
advances in fire prevention
and control, growth prediction,
tree improvement, forest establishment, and many other aspects of technical forestry will
come from an increased knowl-
-edge of trees, forests, soils, insects, disease, fire,* and-tha
like, and the many interactions
involved. The importance of
forest products research, which
is already on the upsurge in
the Forest Products Laboratories of Canada, goes without
saying. Basic knowledge in respect of wood, cellulose and
lignin is woefully incomplete
but very important to the future of the forest industries.
Advances in basic knowledge -
that lead to improved and more
economic utilization of the forests' growth will, in turn, make
possible better forest management.
The new Forestry Department's task will be to. undertake as much basic research of
a high order as possible and to
encourage the universities to
make full use of their person-,
nel and facilities to a similar
end. It should be largely the
Provinces' responsibility to experiment with the application
of new knowledge to the forests under their authority and
then to use the findings in the
day-to-day management of the
forest resource. If this kind of
division of responsibility can
be agreed upon, the co-ordination of forest research in Canada would be to a great extent
facilitated and progress would
be close to maximal for the
amounts spent.
There is every reason to
hope that the elevation of forestry to departmental status
will result in more forest research particularly in the basic fields, a high degree of coordination of effort, a clear definition of federal, provincial,
and university responsibilities,
and an impetus to graduate
studies and research in the
Canadian forestry faculties and
related science departments.
The move could be a most important milestone on the road
towards scientific forest management in  Canada. PAGE SIX

The CCF program is based on
the belief in the intrinsic worth
of the individual and the equality of men.
To the underprivileged nations Canada has an obligation
that must be fulfilled by material and technical aid. In order
to increase our foreign aid program there must be substantial
cuts in present defense costs
which are useless in the age of
the nuclear deterrent. Unable
to compete in the arms race effectively, Canada's contribution
to world peace and security can
only lie in bridging the economic
and cultural gap between East
and West.
To bridge this gap, Canada
miust replace its immigration
policy based on race discrimination by a 'fair" policy based
on ability and occupational skill
of the immigrant and the capacity of  the economy.
The CCF believes economic
planning necessary for stable
and sane economic development.
The search for the quick profit
must be subordinated to social
responsibility. Our present "chaotic progress" with all its sym-
toms of depression, inflation,
and waste' bf resources is incompatible with the full opportunity
of the individual to develop himself.

If Canada is to retain her

To get the most out of our
defence dollars there should be
more specialization of Canada's
defence spending through concentration on fewer better planned projects. The Canadian
Emergency Force should be' as
well equipped and highly mobile as possible.
The Liberals demand a return to government responsibility for monetary policy, fiscal
policy designed to promote economic expansion without inflation, and effective legislation
against combines and monoplies.

McGoun Cup .officials for choosing such a poor topic for the
annual affair^
The topic was: "Resolved thsti,
a border be drawn at the Manitoba Ontario border, dividing
Canada into two separate countries."
"It is a particularly poor
topic," he said.
Manitoba's Roy MacKenzie
had earlier said, "it is a stupid
topic, I grant you."
And in leading off the affirmative argument for UBC, Ken
Hodkinson hfed said' that the
topic was not one to be taken
seriously, but rather facetiously.

The CCP leader stated that if
the $400 million that was spent

developing trade with Brazil and

The Professor Who Wasn't
Gets Bounced From His Post
OTTAWA—Jan. 28—(CUP) —
A man who- stated he was qualified to lecture, and wasn't, although both students and faculty
thought he was, has been removed from the staff of a Canadian university for the second
time in his chequered career.
Robert Peters, a lecturer in
history who claimed he had an
Honours BA in History from the
University of London, and a PhD
from the University of Washington in Seattle, was discharged
from the University of Ottawa
when it was proved he had no
degree at all.
It was not the first time he
had been hired on the basis of
non-existent qualifications. The
University of Toronto had been
taken in, as well as the
College of. Wooster, Ohio. At
Toronto he lectured one term before he was found out.
He was cited as being a successful lecturer at both Wooster
and .Ottawa, Where the Chairman
of the department, Dr. Guy Fre-
gault, Ereiman professor of Canadian History, said he had great
esteem, lor him, and that Mr.
Peters had gained the admiration
of both students and his colleagues.
The story on Peters began to
emerge in November following
a tip given to Ottawa dean of
Peters' Oxford reference
sources said he had no degrees,
but that his work had been excellent. They later retracted
these statements, and apologized
to Ottawa.
The university told Peters in
December that there was some
difficulty in establishing his credentials at Seattle, and later it
learned that he had been a
transient student there in the
summer of 1951, but had taken
no degree.
The University of London said
he held no degree there, and
none from any university in the
