Struggle
FREDERICTON (CUP)—Oct.
19—A series of violent clashes
last weekend between Univer-
siyt of New Brunswick students
and soldiers from Camp Gage-
town has brought an intensive
investigation into the entire affair.
'Two UNB students required
treatment at the Victoria Public Hospital Saturday. Most serf'
ously was Gordon Howse, editor
of the campus newspaper, Bruns-
wiekan. He was assaulted when
three people, two believed to be
soldiers, entered his boarding
house. Fourteen stitches were
required to close cuts on Hawse's
head following the fight.
Ronald Samuels, a first year;
science student needed two stitches to close a cut after he was
stoidk in the leg. Samuels and
two companions were passing
through the old burial grounds
in the center at Fredericton,
-when they were attacked by a
group of 10 men. Samuels later
told police his attackers had
been  soldiers.
The incidents are believed to
have grown from a Friday night
episode inw hich a UNB student
allegedly stabbed a, Gagetown
soldier in the face during a
dance. Saturday other soldiers
are supposed to have been looking for retaliation.

>«heque* at the Cashier's Wicket, in "lhe Administration
Building, not later than Tuesday.
Ruth Kidd, Derek Fraser and
Graham Walker reported on
their six week trip to Israel and
the Middle East this summer.
Commenting on the university at Jerusalem, Ruth mentioned the startling contrasts
they found. Although the buildings were ultrajmodern, there
was no parking lot as none of
the students owned cars.
CANADIANS   INDIVIDUALS
She said that although there
were definite bonds between
Canadian and Israeli students,
the intense "group feeling" ol
the Israeli students as opposed
to the individualism of the Canadians proved a source of misunderstanding.
Speaking about her two week
stay on a community farm, she
said, "It was a unique experience, just plain hard work. We
rose at 4:30 a.m. with the other
members of the community and
picked peaches all day.
"Some of the people had an
idealized view .of their community; they had seen it created
from nothing. Others found it
oppressive to be tied down in
one place with few chances to
leave the farm".
Graham Walker stated, "The
people are hard working, truthful and honest. Hard physical
labour is the center of their
life.
"IsraeTs politics  are unique.
There are many splinter parties
and icontinual coalitions. The
present government suite its
policy to fit situations as they
arise, it has no consistent
policy".
"Surrounding Israel are millions of disgruntled hate-ridden
Arabs. Their object is revenge—
destroy Israel," said Derek Fraser.
POLITICAL  PROBLEMS
"The symbol of their hatred
for Israel is the Arab refugees.
They want to drive the Israelis
into the sea and let the refugees
back into Israel.
"Students and the intelligen-
si have a vision of one united
Aralb state containing all the
Arabs under Nasser".
Students
Ban Use
Of Radar
Chairman David Graham cast
the deciding vote Thursday that
passed a motion that radar traps
be abolished as weapons of B.C.
police.
The 40-member udience voted
20 affirmative and 20 negative
when vote was called on th6
resolution. ; ;
During the speeches whildh
preceded the vote, third yea^
arts student Tony Vincent .charged that police forces cheapen
and. demoralize themselves by
resorting to radar.
INEFFECTIVE
"Radar traps are sneaky, fly-
by-night operations/' Vincent
said. "And their chronic inefeive-
ness has been proven.
"They have not succeeded in
making drivers reduce their
speed."
Vincent and Colin Kyles, Arts
2, spoke for the affirmative of
the resolution while Ian Campbell, Commerce 3, and Eric Hunter, Arts 2, spoke for the negative.
Kyles claimed that the real
deterrent of radar is the sign
which in the U.S. and Alberta
warns of radar traps.
^'But in B.Cl they are seldom
publicized," Kyle said.
"The  police   use. radar flagrantly  and  it  defeats its  purpose."
RADAR FAIR
Campbell speaking against the
resolution claimed that radar is
the fairest way to enforce the
law.
"By use of radar, every car
gets equal treatment," Campbell
said. "It is the fairest and most
impartial way in which the law
can be enforced."
NOT A MONSTER
Hunter, also speaking against
the- resolution, said that radar
is not a. monster but a scientific
device to enforce the law.
night gave interim approval to
a recommendation by the Student Union Building Committee
to change the proposed site of
the new building from where
the Medical Huts now stand, on
the Main Mall, to parking lot
D, beside Empire Pool.
ROOM  NEEDED
This change of sites has been
suggested because it has been
found, after careful investigation, that it will provide greatly
increased parking facilities, and
better possibilities for expansion, said 'Ross Craigie, chairman Of the Student Union Building Committee.
(Studies were started! three
years ago on the need for a
feasibility of its construction.
It was decided that Brock Hall
will not adequately fill the,.
needs of the students in the
future.
Brook is not centrally located
on the campus, the parking facilities in its vicinity are men*
existent and expansion possibilities are limited, Craigie said.
THREE PART UNION
Though plans are still tentative, it is hoped that the new
building Will contain three main
areas: a Student Union section,
with expanded facilities for
Radsoc, Publications, and recreation; indoor Winter Sports
Arena including curling, ice-
skating, hockey and swimming;
and a large Food Services section.
The big bogey, of course,  is-
the problem of how to finance
the new Student Union Building.
All plans depend on how
much money the Provincal Government will contribute, and the
extent to which the students;
will require financial aid for
its construction.
STUDENT  VOTE   COMING
These questions are now being considered by the Student?
Union Building Committee, and:
a report is forthcoming.
Ultimately, any decision on a.
inew S|odent Union Building
will be made in the form of a
vote,by. the student body.
Pubsters:
Training Program This Weekend
Next phase of the training
program gets under way at
noon today. Wiif Bennett of
the Vancouver Province lectures in the Stage Room of the
Brock (get with it, that's the
modernized name for the Music room.)
His topic will be a humorous treatment of the art of
news writing. All students, not
just pubsters, are welcome.
This evening is the tour of
the Province operation. Let's
raise hell in the foyer of the
Province Building starting at
7:15. That means all there by
then if the tour is to get started on time.
Starting next week all reporters and other interested
staff members will be given
the opportunity to spend a
night working with the Province staff on their regular assignments.
You'll get paid exactly the
same standard wage the
Ubyssey pays  now.  Nothing!
It is possible to go on all
day raving about the vast
amount of knowledge we'll
pick up but there isn't that
much space. Why not just
drop down to the pub office
some time and read the bulletin board. It's all there! Pdge 2

/
On this poor sheet I shall inscribe my- name
Together with some verses halt and lame
' Which yet may serve to rectify* ere long
Such faults as I condemn, in this, my song.
Oh! Gods of Freshmen; Greeks and Councillors,
Captains, Doctors, Deans and Chancellors,
Hear how my plea — and answer what I ask—
I   Who governs this-great school? Who shirks their, task?
i   Who organizes building; who o'ersees
]   The schedules, blueprints, workers and the fees?
• Who watches plumbing,,maintains it as it runs?
;i .Who writes the menu,,plants the trees? Who shuns
Administration, choosing, but to teach?
j ' See, and check the trend, Ye Gods, as I beseech.
! . In that new structure built to house the Arts,
i   Of widely separate disconnected parts,
• Each- fair enough when once the class it met,
(The student in between just might get-wet)
Though Doctors and Professors pass right through,
. The recent building has obscured the view
Of some. Yet still we haven't space enough
To study, ponder, gossip and such stuff.
Is it some trick: of fate, or else a sign
' Gf moral lack or failing, that at nine
All clocks are stopped in that new wing
- Where doors and windows gape and bells don't ring
. On time, but jangle like a crazy thing?
Ife it commencement of the day they show,
- Or times much later than the classrooms know,
: Of import other than scholastic?
This fostered timelessness is drastic!
I missed a lecture just the other day—
And watched a dirty drinking fountain play.
Before the library in our new-built square
. Remains yon ancient pond1—let touch who dare
'! That stronghold of the violent Engineer.
It was a gift, 'tis true,' and yet I fear
. 'Tis out of place amidst that newer stone.
Perhaps turned over it could base a throne
Or form, with floor built1 in, and space to crawl out,
A shelter from Atomic Fallout.
" This surge of building' long now overdue
Is good to see but has its drawbacks too.
Though much was done while summer courses ran
The noise is great since winter school began.
Trying to translate a Russian play,
'. I curse the hammer, saw, and fain would slay
The trucker dropping lumber 'neath the sill
j Whereat I wrestle paper, book and quill.
I shut the window, try to concentrate,
, In my room already hot, I suffocate.
Why must the stacks and classrooms be so hot?
. Cannot officials see? We sleep a lot!
And in the gym the lockers are: assigned
By class and hour in crowded groups I find.
Try folding, shirt* and tie" and putting these
With pants and shoes in locker small. They crease,
And hardly can be worn again, and yet,
Each year they go from small to smaller yet.
Believe, Oh Masters, that I don?t complain
.From spite — There's much that's good and right, 'tis plain,
But merely should I like to see this place
-Epitomize perfection, senses and grace.
So may our plea be answered soon, Oh Muse!
—Nor think all's well save these few things I choose
To dwell upon. ly is not So I'm sure.
But none may read this far. I'll say no more.

Grad. Studies
It is not often one sees a
movie with absolutely nothing
to recommend it but one can
always depend on M. Jean
Cdcteau to provide the necessary ingredients. Such is most
certainly the case with his effort, Blood of a Poet, that Mr.
Morris, the aesthetically minded emipressario of Cinema 16,
decided to honor us with
yesterday noon hour.
I had been informed that
this was to be an example of
abstract before I got there.
What was left was an overpowering example of incoher-
ency that sorely indicated that
Blood of a Poet jwas in dire
heed of new blood in the form
of a new director, as well as
something the producers obviously hadn't thought of—a
script writer!! One could possibly excuse M. Cocteau on
the grounds that this is his
first film if one did not realize
the certain similarity, or shall
we say reduplication in his
later efforts.
I thought Filmsoc should
have been showing this, not
Henry V, when they confused
reels. In fact I was not absolutely certain that such was
not the case here.
Apparently according to Mr.
Morris, you were not to look
for plot (a good thing for there
was none to be found) but instead you were to let the
movie flow around you,: not
letting, such trivial matters as
lack of continuity or meaning
interfere with this process.
One would assume that the
ultimate in cinematic art, then,
is a blank screen, although
M. Cocteau provides a suitable
substiute. And it is up to you
to get something out of the
movie, with, of course, a very
strong implication that if you
weren't able to do this, there
was something wrong with
you, not M. Cocteau. This, of
course, is a very convenient
answer to M. Cbcteau's critics,
but by this mode of reasoning,
you can destroy the criticsm
of any of the Bollwood movies
such as Pollyahna, that Mr.
Morris detests so much.
It will be mOst interesting to
see what Mr. Sinclair will have
to say about this movie in next
week's  Critic's Page.
Because Cinema 16 has become a slightly martyred symbol of culture on this culturally barren campus, there is a
tendency to say uncritically,
everything they feature; is
in fact every well-known foreign movie is automatically a
work of art. M. Coeteau's effort should seriously impair
this illusion.
As I watched the audience
file out before and after the
end of the movie with either
looks of bewilderment or Utter
unconcern on their faces, I
wondered just how much Mr.
Morris thought he was aiding
the cause of art on this factory
campus.

Letters To The Editor
AIF Speaks
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
It is time some facts were
known about the Allied Integ*
rity Front. You have twice
printed a misleading opinion
that points out poor journalism.
The AIF was NOT "formed as
a Clubs' Day stunt," but as a
political club seeking to represent the intelligentsia.
When the Students' Council
passed the constitution of the
AIF last Monday night, the AIF
then and there became a member of Parliamentary Council,
in accordance with the Pari.
Council constitution. It is still
a member. Thus you are misleading twice again by talking
of the "five established political clubs," because the AIF is
an established club, and therefore there are six.
The motion passed at Wednesday's P.C. meeting which
was intended to make it practically impossible for the AIF
to have the support of the other five clubs, was ultra vires
because proper notice of the
amending motion was not
given.
Even if the motion was valid, the political clubs would
have to decide if the program
of the AIF (who have one vote
at the presidents' meeting)
should have their approval.
With approval of the program
or not, the AU/1 still would be a
member of the Parliamentary
Council.
It must also be pointed out
that the AIF will continue to
exist if it does not gain entrance to Model Parliament. It
is a club which strongly supports the parliamentary traditions of Canada and Great
Britain. This includes the support of democracy.
One of the basic concepts of
democracy is that any citizen
should have the right to run
for, and if elected to hold, public office. The AIF seeks to
participate in the Model Parliament by running for election
with other political clubs next
spring, in the best democratic
tradition. To try to prevent
others the fundamental right
to run for public office shows
lack of integrity and undemocratic action.
Model Parliament to be modelled more closely on the House
of Commons.
"Integrity    is    our    middle
name."
Bruce Cowie
AIF
(Editor's Note: The basis
of Mr. Cowie's disagreement
with the story printed in The
Ubyssey Thurcday seems to
be a matter of interpretation. The Ubyssey based its
story on information from
the best sources available at
the time.)
Attack Answered
The AIF is not trying to
make a farce of model parliament, but rather to improve
the interest in our national
Parliament, to make the Model
Parliament more interesting
to the sturents, and to urge the
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Mr. Hodgkinson, Arts 4, has
leapt into the forum defending
God knows what, but fairly
obviously attacking me personally and incidentally, my
article in the Ubyssey, Oct. 13.
In that article I was attempting to draw attention to the
unfair tactics of the Ubyssey
in eliciting an article from
fraternity men, asking them
to spell out their reasons for
joining, and then sneering at
the values which were expressed.
It seemed to me then as it
does now, that that was simply
an example of bad manners
by the editors. It has nothing
to do with freedom of the press
as Hodgkinson would have us
think. The fraternity man has
an absolute right to the values
which he lives by, and those
who try to raise a public cry
questioning the merits of such
views are merely engaged on
a boorish invasion of the individual's  privacy.
Mr. Hodgkinson, in a very
rude letter, has taken the opposite position. He continues
to insist that fraternities 'justify' their existence to him. I
question his right as I questioned the Ubyssey's right to
demand that it be a condition
percedent to the existence of
any organization that its objects meet with their personal
approval.
I am only trying to defend
the simple idea that it is a far
better state of affairs when
all lawful organizations can
depend upon the protection of
the law for their existence,
regardless of their popularity.
If Hodgkinsson wants to persist in his campaign, I suggest
that he contact the offices of
the late Sen. J. McCarthy of
Illinois. They are certain to
Have some dandy tips on how
to get the ball really rolling.

International House Credit
Union is celebrating Credit
Union Day, tonight at International House with an evening
of performances by foreign
and ethnical groups.
The main purpose of the
campus credit union is to financially help member students who find it difficult to
manage through the school
term.
The Credit Union is open to
all foreign students and to any
Canadian citizen who is a member of International House.
BENEFITS
A credit union is an institution of personal finance operating under the charter and supervision of a Provincial Government, owned and managed
by the membership united under a common body, for their
mutual benefit.
It has a -dual function, economic as well as social. As an
economic unit, it provides its
members with saving facilities,
and then from the pooled savings smakes available to them
personal loans at a minimum
cost.
It is a non-profit organization. The social aspect of Credit Unions is equally important. It affords an opportunity
for people to join together to
serve the needy through the
techniques of democratic action.

Credit Union participation
helps in inculcating the habit
of thrift in its members. New
methods are being developed
to help members solve their
financial problems.
FINANCES LARGE
With one complete year of
business behind it the Credit
Union has over $3,000 in assets
with a little under $2,000 out
in loans.
The interest rate is within
most students' means at only
V2 % per month on the remaining unpaid balance.
There is no security needed
on any loan made under $200.
AH that is required is your
signature and the signature of
a friend.
Most c-f the loans at the moment are limited sto $125
which is a tentative ceiling until the union's assets increase.
However, loans are made aver
this amount.
STUDENTS SAVE
The sources of funds of the
I.H. Credit Union are student
members savings, investments
by the sister credit unions of
this Province and the investments   of   various   individuals
other than students, on and off
the campus.
Five dollar shares may be
purchased at the office in International House. The yearly
profits are divided among the
shareholders.
In a period of nine months,
its share capital has risen
above $3,000 and several students have been helped in financing their studies.
By this means the Credit
Union let sthose who have any
surplus cash, help others who
find -themselves in financial
difficulties.
The campus union is chartered under the B.C. Credit
Union Act and is operating on
a fully legal basis. This means
that student investments are
fully insured.
REPAYMENT COMES
The repayment date is set
by mutual agreement of the
union and the debtor. No pressure is put on the uebtor until
this date is reached and then
it is applied in moderation only.
The only paid member on
the Staff is Winston Jose, the
treasurer.

THE      UBYSSEY
Friday, C
I    Plaskett
A difference in space is a"
difference in time. The difference between Joe Plaskett's
art, as done in Paris, and the
art of British Colmtoia is both,
and the current art exhibition
in the Fine Arts Gallery shows
not only the trend Plaskett has
taken, but also the trend in
European art of the last four
years.
The art world of New York,
London and Paris has shown
a great change in form; not
only have the sources changed,
but the actual end result has
departed from the non-figurative painting of the past. A
developing trend is seen, with
more of a classical influence.
iPlyskett's current exihibition
typifies this development and
is important for it helps us to
equate the difference between
what might be called the "B.C.
style" and that of the major
themes of the coast and the
art centre. The local artists
have utilized the familiar
harsh, dry interiors to develop
a very vital and dynamic form,
but there appears to be a preoccupation with the primitive
woodland to an exclusion of
the human. Perhaps the wilderness element is too strong
here yet for civilization to
penetrate the artist's conception, and the city scenes—the
West end houses, telephone
poles and streets full of potholes have an air of imperm-
anence, a scratch merely, and
one already healing.
STRANGE CHARM
There is none of this in
Plaskett's work. His paintings
are highly civilized; Paris is
very old and a mature city.
The Boulevard St. Germain
shows the city in its greyness
and strange charm, and though
the sky is a trifle weak, provides a good introduction to
the more serious works to
come.
The Large Interior With
Figures, numbers one, two and
three are a striking series of
canvasses, approximately four
feet by five, showing a number
of figures in a room. Mostly
seated, but with one or two
Standing to provide balance
and an air of dynamic expectancy, they show most of Plaskett's themes. I thought that

A SIMPL
JOE PLASKETT explaining his paintings.

black line, which in itself is
good, and lends an element of
spontaneity if controlled, but
which appears to have almost
escaped here. Numbers two
and three are great improvement, the tones warmer and
more inviting than the rather
cold tones of the first.
Figures Reflected with a
Bust, a mirror image, seems
to bring out the quality of
depth and dimension while
limiting the area to a more
easily handled size—the yellow gold and green tones produce a morning from another
era.
His Interior With Figure At
Window again uses the same
basic tones, although the yellow of the curtains, while giving a pleasant illusion of
transparency, is too raw. Da-
gan In Paris is of a different
order. Although the harsh tone
of the drapes is still present
the figure of the girl has
enought charm to offset any
shortcomings, and her simple
pose is delightful.
AWKWARD   NUDE
The still lifes on the whole
were of a lower calibre compared to the paintings with
figures. Common and a little
hackneyed, Mr. Plaskett's best
work is definitely not in the
field of still- life as such, but
rather in figurative painting
with large interiors for a backdrop. His one nude figure is
stiff and awkward with an
unfinished air, a complete contrast to Poppy, a clothed figure reclining. Here the grace
of the model which Plaskett
has captured, and the usage of
a low-key palette produces
one of the best paintings in the
exhibition.
The portraits are a new development, and show a better
control of paint and technique.
The most recent of his paintings, they reveal a talent and
ability that at times isn't apparent in the other works.
Their coloring is superior, and
does not jar as the earlier
paintings do; the overall appearance is of quality and
workmanship. Diana, a, pastel
. portrait, should be mentioned
•—though not finalized, and
little more than a sketch, it
has something of Rembrandt
or Rubens in the line, and
Michael, two studies in pastel,
are very good indeed.
The Open Gate, a scene in a
country lane, brings out Plaskett's strength in handling a
purely natural subject, and is
a pleasant pause between the
interiors and portraits. Rue de
Seine towards the Louvre
shows more of the city than
almost any of the typical
splashes of color-and-light to
be found in the local art shops.
His Paris is a grey city, but
a beautiful grey, and it is the
people themselves who supply
the   charm  and  vivacity.
The Plaskett exhibition has
shown us what a Canadian
artist can produce when given
the opportunity to study in a
culture and surroundings different from our own. Polished,
thoughtful and at times introspective, his work shows
strength and development.
Canadian artists should take
a second look at Joe Plaskett
before sitting down on their
apple-box to paint another
mournful fir.

For preventing the children
of British Columbia from being a threat to the established
order of our society and for
making said persons serve a
useful purpose.
It is a source of infinite pain
to those who survey our University of British Columbia
campus to see to many wisdom-
loving students ensconced in
the Library, on the lawn, in
the Cafeteria (particularly at
the front tables), in the Buchanan Lounge and in sundry
classrooms (with which our
fair campus is too much endowed), all reading ravenously, writing rapidly, or declaiming deftly in an attempt to eke
out the one germen of truth
which may lie dormant in
some scurrilous scholar's atrophied utterance. The only outcome of such iniquitous pursuits is, of course, Chaos, that
wolfish condition which results when Order is disrupted.
It is a fact universally accepted
that the old order must not
change: on it our whole society
depends. As the condition now
stands, these foolish sapience-
seekers must either be denied
an important post in our society or they must be forced to
flee the country, seeking for
Disharmonious conditions elsewhere.
such people are not to be gh

though they could probably

I think it is agreed by all
those in Authority that these
same scholars, after having
been released from our Institution, are the cause of the
present Dangerous Situation in
'which we find ourselves. Even
when denied a place of fair
prospect, these insidious individuals manage to infiltrate into areas of influence, not to too
great an extent of course,
but one which must be considered nevertheless. One frequently used avenue of foul
propagandizing is the public-
school system, nor, alarmingly, is our very Institution free
from such forces of Destruction. Most disgusting and unnatural of all is the fact that
many women, that previously
fair and genteel sex, have now
entered the lists against this
very civil state which has been
so concerned to keep them in
the home, pure and sanctified.
'Tis a situation most Peculiar
and Perplexing.
However, after having cast
my mind's eye over possible
methods of seeking out and
destroying the revolutionary
worm in our Civic Apple, I believe that I have found a number of repellents quite adequate to the task. The remainder of this dissertation is an
toutline of measures which
must be immediately undertaken at this Institution.
Firstly, we must institute a
strict Selection Board allowing
no one with an Intelligence
Quotient of over 100 into the
confines of what would then
be a perfect microcosm of society at large. I am informed
by many of our most eminent
psychologists that such persons as who tested higher than
100 could be gainfully employed as ward-aides, particularly
in mental hospitals, as experimental guinea pigs (a rather
debasing, but apt, term) in extraterrestrial flights, or as
farmers in previously uncultivated areas of our fair globe,
as for example in Uganda, Upper Labrador, or the Polar
reaches of the Northwest Territories. It is to be noted that

The concert opened wi
Mozart's Symphony No. 40 :
G Minor K.550. It is characte
ized by a pervasive dramat
mood and consistent style. Tl
music's effect is gained t

This brings us to the fourth
int, the curriculum. All Phi-
sophy courses, with the ex-
ption of those dealing with
agmatism, will have to be
leted, as will most English
urses. Those dealing with
ammar, factual scientific renting and the proper form of
bank draught will be con-
lued but only under strict
rveillance. History, and most
the other humanities will
ve to be given a new em-
lasis, the details of which I
ive to those gentlemen de-
ted to preserving our society
tact.
Fifthly, since it  is  entirely
ssible that, even given these
ideal conditions, some students
may be tempted to indulge in
idle flights of Fancy into areas
not proper to them, there must
be some means of rooting out
such     late-flowering     weeds.
This  should be done by  the
student body in order to train
our students to look for the
cankerous  spores   of  such   indigenous growths. It is my considered opinion that the Greek
Letter Societies presently functioning under the wing of our
August Stork have the necessary   organization   to   perform
this much needed function. At
one time, of course, such Societies could not have been tolerated. We must discourage free
discussion particularly between
persons of different disciplines.
This is an age of Compartment-
alization   and    Specialization
and it must remain so if we
are    to    continue    our    great
Twentieth   Century   tradition.
However, since said groups are
now devoted solely to promoting fun and organized, invigilated friendship among a select
group of devotees, for the most
part completely separated from
those undesirable elements on
our   campus,   those   we   shall
presently attempt to eliminate,
they would be the precise instruments for this amputation. •
Those who now belong to these
societies are ideal, indeed perfect, examples of the kind of
person we wish to produce,
stout upholders of the Old Order, properly conscious of their
Social Status, and before all
else, enthusiasts of that glorious conformity which is becoming more and more dominant
in our society. Such individuals should also sit on the Selection Committee; their long
years of practice in making
snap judgments regarding character, coupled' with their in-
ate sense of who would, could,
and will, fit into their highly
organized and uniformly mediocre group, makes their services invaluable.
Gentlemen, I hope that you
will receive the foregoing simple suggestion favourably. By
those among you who can properly appreciate the importance
of the problem here outlined,
I know it will. The rest is tuum
est.
G. D. I. DNEEDLE.
RES AT AN EXHIBITION
Dvement, the general effect-
sness of the approach was
ident. A more singing qual-
" in the violins might have
tenuated the tendency to
aviness. Perhaps another
jakness.was in the interplay
'tween woodwinds and
•mgs in the andante move-
;nt. The statement and reply
Eect was played very slowly
d this gave the whole move-
;nt an unwarranted slug-
shness. For the most part,
wever, the conductor gave a
rd driven and strongly ac-
ated reading which the oroh-
;ra played quite well.
Next on the program was
niomime for Winds and
mission by the contennpor-
j Canadian composer Pierre
;rcure. It is a short com-
sition, taking less than ten
nutes and, as the title indies, is played toy winds and
rcussion alone. It is possibly
>re interesting for the vari-
' of tonal effects it obtains
in for deep musical ideas,
either case the performance
s quite satisfactory.
*    'k    ic
Vhe afternoon's soloist, Can-
an contralto, Maureen For-
ter, sang Guslav Mahler's
nderlolenlieder    (five   songs*
the death .of children),
sse dirges set to words bucket show the composer's
;p    romanticism—his    love
nature and his sense of
lancholy. The first two
gs compare the shining of
sun and stars to the shin-
of   the   children   in   the.,
t's memory. The storms in
third and fourth produce
contrast a sense of former
ce. Finally, the very expres
sive fifth song develops from
a restless beginning to a haunting, lyrical conclusion, symbolic of both resignation and
ultimate peace.
Miss Forrester sang the
songs with obvious conviction,
though perhaps with a more
exalted than personal compassion. Unfortunately her voice
did not project well and was
more often than not clouded
by the orchestra. Although the
rich orchestration is an important contribution to the
overall effect of the songs, the
partnership in this case was
not equal. Mr. Hoffman often
over-emphasized the orchestral
part, impairing much of the
subtlety of Miss Forrester's interpretation.
*   *   *
The concluding selection of
the concert was the orchestra's
performance 'of Mussorgsky's
Pictures at an Exhibition. The
original piano pieces from"
which Ravel orchestrated the
present version were inspired
by an exhibition of paintings
and drawings by Victor Hart-
man. The various sections of
the composition depict the subjects of some .of these paintings. They include an Old
Castle, Polish ox cart, hut on
fowl's legs and several others.
The music is vividly descriptive and presents a whole
gamut or orchestral color. This
composition is an ideal vehicle for a virtuoso orchestra
since each section is called upon to demonstrate its individual features in a spectacular
manner—from the chirping
woodwinds in theBallet of
Chicks in their Shells to the
flashing brasses in the Great
Gate of Kiev.
Conductor Hoffman certainly made the most of What resources his orchestra possessed.
Ideally their numbers should
have been much larger but
this didn't seem to inhibit
the musicians. If anything,
they often seemed to play with
abandon, throwing disipline to
the winds (no pun intended).
Surprisingly, the number of
technical mistakes wasn't at
all excessive though the dynamics were. The saxophone
solo in The Old Castle was
somewhat exaggerated and
the brasses in general, though
in harmony, were sometimes
inordinately.,., loud. Mr, Hoffman's reading might have been
much more enjoyable had he
sacrificed some enthusiasm for
a little better balance and control.
Broadly speaking, Sunday's
program provided a wide variety of music and orchestral
colors. Indeed, since the general level .of playing was better
that at the opening concert of
the season one could more
easily concentrate on the colors of the music, rather than
the somewhat more unique
colors of the musicians presented on that occasion.
—WILLIAM   LITTLER
The curtain rises on the
Freddy Wood's "Under the Sycamore Tree' to reveal a funny,
surprising .embarrassing and
boring scene. Alma Thery,
looking a little like Antony's
Cleopatra and a lot like Mrs.
Hushabye, is reclining on a
throne, laying eggs. "Oah", she
moans ,lightly and prettily, and
"plop!" out from under her
regal robes rolls a lovely duck-
blue egg. We laugh. We are
surprised, too, until we realize
the programme tells us Miss
Thery is a Queen Ant. And
then we are embarrassed because ,no matter what the programme says, Miss Thery, gloriously voluptuous and snowy-
bosomed, is patently a woman,
and women don't lay eggs, they
bear babies, and we're damned
if we've come to the theatre
to witness a birth. But "oah",
again, and once more, "plop'!"
—another turquoise ovoid appears. And "oah" and "plop",
until we become tired of the
joke.
STICKY HONEY
As with this scene, so with
the play as a whole. We are initially surprised to find ourselves in an ant-colony, one
moreover which contains talking ants who have discovered
D.D.T., photography and electricity. We are at first amused,
particularly when an ant-scientist decides to drill two young
workers until they become as
human beings. (First telling
them they are male and female
—a distinction of which every
human male present has been
aware from the moment Bar-
Bara Jay, the girl ant, makes
her entrance — he adds that
they are hungry, and then
hands the male a luscious honeycomb. "What do you do?"
asks the scientist. "I eat it!"
mumbles John Parker, doing
just that, and the scientist, retrieving the food, has to explain that Miss Jay ought first
to be offered a bite.) The play
is funny just as long as such
human peccadiloes—love, unselfishness, monogamy — are
being regarded from an ant's
viewpoint; the moment the ants
achieve their desire to develop
feelings, they become human
themselves, and while Sam
Spewack's dialogue is excellent
for ants, it turns to sticky
honey in human mouths.
The joke turns cold because
Mr. Spewack has put all his
eggs in one basket; the humour
lies not in the lines but in the
initial situation, and once we
have grown used to that, there
is nothing left. We become
bored; and, in the final scene,
where the aged scientist has to
utter amorphous abstractions
of lines like ''we must hope for
the future," we are embarrassed. It may be that this is Mr.
Spewack's parody of a politician; if so, it ought to be
much sharper. It sounds suspiciously like a tired old message to me. I would far sooner
learn that the scientist, who
has ridden off on a poodle and

LOOSE   DIRECTION
This is not the play Mr. Spewack wrote, however, and we
must accept the reality, even as
the cast have to do. Apart from
having   committed  the   initial
error of being cast, these actors
generally do quite well. It is
difficult to discover any performance   approaching   excellence, or any that are particularly poor; and I submit that
this is due to loose direction,
which has left in obvious faults
and failed to polish potential
high points. Alma Thery, truly
regal, if with an imperious gesture off-right too often repeated, rushes the meaning out of
some of her lines:  When the
statistician announces he has
saved the general's honour by
eating him, Miss Thery's "how
could you" suggests he'd merely  confessed  to   juggling  statistics.  When it is announced
the rival Brown ants have also
discovered D.D.T., her "O no",
without   prefacing   pause,   is
again too casual. Earl Mathe-
son,   strong,    sqUare-jawed,
glowing with assurance, spoils
his   performance   as   scientist
with   a   continual   soft   shoe
shuffle    which    the    director
should have corrected; he ,too,
has poorly-timed deliveries: the
girl ant collapses, her boy companion cries "She's hurt!"; the
scientist says,  "He feels",  instead of exulting, after a moment of stunned realization, "HE
FEELS!"   The  domestic  scene
between the scientist and the
Queen, both now married, and
parents, needs a lot-more pace
to carry it over the banality of
the dialogue. The voices on the
short-wave   radio   need   to   be
sharp and incisive; they're not;
they're weak and woolly, and
the effect is scrambled ham.
Frank Crowson, the general,
is a military man from his
quivering moustache to his
rooky knees, but shouts too
much for the tiny theatre, and
often gives the impression of
foreknowledge; which probably
means he isn't listening to his.
fellow actors.
Barbara Jay is a very sweet
girl ant, and in her second part
a very neat secretary; it is hard
to see how she could have done
better. Similar praise is due to
John Parker, who survives his
director to give the two best
realized performances of the
production, as boy ant and,
later, Twentieth Century Con-
necticutian as the court of
Queen Ant. Antennae attached
to his spectacles, spats on his
feet, statistician Guy Palmer
almost convinces me that he is
an ant, the only satisfactorily
non-human actor of the evening.
If Robert Read's direction is
the weak point, Derek Mann's
sets are the strong point, and
would have even more verisimilitude if a little less light
were thrown on them.
The magic lantern silhouettes on the curtain and the
mood music in the intermissions are a very effective device, initiated at this theatre
by John Brockington for "Easter"; this time we have ants
instead of birch-twigs, insec-
toidai music instead of Haydn*

Entry fees are 50 cents for

TOTEM TOUGH
The Totem Rally, primarily
for beginners, covers roads not
difficult to traverse. However,
it involves both accuracy and
speed, and detailed road maps
are needed.
Club co-ordinator Fraser McLeod has spent many weekends
ramtoljing through back roads
.^nd highways hspking for a
possible route. Dead end roads
are not always avoidable and a
navigator is usually indispensi-
ble.
The actual rally route is a
well-guarded secret. Route
sheets will not be available to
the competitors until the minute
they leave the starting grid.
The drivers must be on their
toes to keep on schedule, as
check points must toe passed at
certain times.

In the past few years, enthusiasm in sports car activities
has   reached   an  all-time   high.
With the opening of the West-
wood Circuit the UBC Cluib
formed a racing team which has
developed into a successful,
organized unit.
Last year two members won
class championships in the
Pacific Northwest.
The club holds two rallies a
year, the Totem and the Thunderbird, & 'two day rally in,
January. Plans are now being
made for Intercollegiate competition in the Pacific Northwest.
The club also sponsors two
gymkhanas a year. These are
always exciting affairs and are
a real test of driving skill.
In the gymkhanas, small oar
drivers have the opportunity vto
challenge the bigger Detroit
cars.
Unprepared Birds
Face Ramblers
When the Thunderbirds meet the Seattle Ramblers this
Saturday, they will be the worst-prepared team to represent
this university in years.
The players don't know their
plays, and worse, they don't
seem to care. Under new Bird
policy, if you miss an assignment, you run five laps. At the
last practice there were more
players running than practicing.
Add to this the possible loss
•of star Bruce McCaUum, suffering from a shoulder injury,
and you have a pretty dismal
situation.
RAMBLERS   ROUGH
"The Ramlblers, on the other
hand, are a team of former collegiate players and other amateurs who are playing strictly
for the love of the game. Although the Ramblers lost many
of their first string of players
from last year they have been
recruiting and could prove to
be extremely tough.
Ordinarily the Birds would
be heavy favourites to win this
game, but with their present
attitude there is a great deal of
doubt.
Biggest news of the week is
the moving of Doug Piteau to
quarterback in an effort to get
a scoring punch in t h e back-
field. Piteau is an able passer
and has the atoility to roll out
and run. This double threat is
what the Birds have been lacking.

Another surprise is the dressing of Denny Argue for this
game. He will start at center.
with his shoulder in a harness.

'Birds
Take On
Meralomas
UBC rugby players are steeling themselves for Saturday,
when they set out to atone for
last week's miserable fiasco of
lost games.
Thunderibirds, still smarting
from the anticlimatic loss to
the* Trojans after beating the
touring Japanese, ' meet the
tough Meralomas at Brocton
Oval. The Braves take on Rowing Club, also at Brocton.
The team has undergone lineup changes since last weekend.
Oh the wdng for the Birds will
be Bob McKee. He has been a
standout on the Balmy Beach
rugby team, which has just re-
returned undefeated from a
tour of England.
In an effort to Abetter co-ordinate the scrum and 3-lihe play,
thfe keen, musclebound Peter
Bugg has been moved to the
scrum, as eighth man.
Replacing Bugg at scrum half
will be the ex-Brave Sturrock.
Ted Bryan will take over Dave
Howie's old spot at inside center.

JUNIOR GIRLS
BASKETBALL
The Junior Girls Basketball
team were defeated Tuesday
night in their first league game.
The score 39-18 is not really indicative of the calibre of these
girls.
Because of the lack of a coach
the team has only had two
practices.
High scorers for UBC were
Diane Godfrey and Pauline
Metzler.

had
300
Philips tape recorders
he could use each in a different way.. •
in many cases, to help with his studies!
Of worse, he'd have a lot of Philips Tape
Recorders left over. Actually, one machine
would do the trick ... as we prove in our
famous booklet "300 Tested Uses for a Philips
Tape Recorder".
Learn how a Philips Tape Recorder can help
you in your studies ... and for years following
