Grim Prospects
We were Scarcely surprised to liHrn that
cnly 30 percent of this year's freshman class

percent of freshman votes in their favor,
appear to have a tough row to hde during the
rest of this year. •      ,
If they gamble on more interestin aetlvi-
ties than freshmen have already shdwn, they
are likely to lose. If they Worfc on the assumption that freshmen generally aren't interested
in their own activities, the executive will
either undershoot the mark, or at least find
little satisfaction in the Job.
Considering the situation, tiie FUS executive would be accomplishing a minor miracle if they can show even the smallest measure of success in Frosh activities during thc
remainder of the year.
It if with the deepest regret that the

Goodbye—-, Uncle Vic, and good luck.
by Joan Basted
Mrs. Yvonne Firkins set something of a
precedent in Vancouver Sunday night introducing the first "arena style" production, to
this city.
fhe arena theatre, or 'theatr»-in-the-
round as it is sometimes called, requires that
the audience be elevated from the stage and
seated around it on all four sides.
The nearness of the actors to the audience produces an intimacy and informality
difficult to attain in the more usual peephole theatre.
Mrs. Firkins' studio is an oblong room
which does not lend itself to seating on all
four sides, but she has compromised by placing the audience at either ends of the room
with the stage between, producing quite satisfactorily the arena type of informality.
fhe limitations of the theatfe-in-the-
round lie mainly in the type of play which
can be presented. One set productions and
drawing-room plays lend themselves mort:
adequately, as can be imagined, than multiset extravaganzas and woodland scenes complete with trees and medieval castles.
The actors job is more difficult in this
type of production since great concentration
is required to separate the stage world from
the reality of an audience which is practically
in the lap of the performer. However the
actor has the satisfaction of knowing that
every gesture, every flicker of an eyelash
is significant to his close range beholders.
Notwithstanding the interest of a new style
of production,- I am still convinced that "tho
play's the thing."
In this case the play was Moss Hart's
"Light Up the Sky."
It is the story of an idealistic young playwright who writes a play with a "message",
and is lucky enough to find a producer, and
a well-known director and actress to present
it. Unhappily, the play is an allegory, and on
opening night the baffled audience walks out
on it. At this point the producer, director,
actress, and their various mothers nnd husbands become very bitchy, especially to ti:<>
This disillusions him to what he fomeily
believed was the basic greatness of shbw
people, and he buys a plane ticket to some
distant point and stalks out swearing never
to pen another line.
The remaining personel are too distracted
to care until the morning papers arrive with*
lyrical reviews, and the playwright is persuaded to return, rewrite parts of the play,
and all is well.
Moss Hart's show is very slick, very
American, very funny and often embarress-
ingly sentimental. The characters are types
we have seen in a hundred movies and plays;
and the whole affair although rather superficial is admittedly amusing.
Mrs." Firkins' production is of a high
calibre. An excellent performance was turned in by Ed McNamara as the producer. Also
outstanding were James Johnston as the
emotional director, Bea Lennard as the temperamental actress and Babs Hitchman as
the actresses' mother.
fhe latest Player's Club production of "Her
Scienceman Lover" hit the campus last Friday with the usual Jabez combinations of
burlesque and sex. ,
Of necessity this annual production
makes no attempt at a finished performance,
and its success depends largely on Jabez'
very funny lines and the natural exuberance
of the actors.
There was plenty, of exuberance last
Friday. Joan Powell had a lovely time in a
flapper-like gown as the drunken Aunt Nelly
Hamilton; Norman Campbell, who also directed, was hillarious as the hen-pecked Uncle
John who suddenly tells his wife to go to Hell
after bolting a large snort of Aunt Nelly's
Ron Wilson has more leaning towards
tragic and powerful roles than gay comedy,
and was miscast as the blithe young science-
Angla Wood seemed forced as ihe
dragon-like Aunt Cynthia.
The huge picture deccorating the left
side of the stage was by Rolph Blakstad and
lent the usual harum-scarum set a touch of
visual distinction.
fhe nottl 6f education' Is tlio Ideal

In an address to the Canadian Education* Adso'dintloh Itf Victoria on1
OcU. 2.

Ideal citizen, Dr. Mackenzie said:

we must aide ourselves afc' educators'
what: Whfi of* artulttr aWd eltlfeens we
really want to produce.
Turning to sortie of the weaknesses
In our cdueatlorial ertvlrohnient Dr.
Mackenzie said:
"Much In our Western North American world Is bnd, undesirable and
dangerous, .or weak and deficient.
Here 1 am talking about education
In terms of Influence* and environment. As llluilratlbhs, nitty I mention two potential of Inherent weaknesses; The first, the potentialities
and 'ho known effects of which I
would describe as the mass" appeal,
Iho other,*the Iniportnnoe of the
soft, tho lusti op the sensual Ideals
prevalent In much of dur society.
Thc mass irtfedlii of Information* and
recreation, televMottV mdvles, thd
radio, advertising generally, graphics, the conilca and evert the press
to a HmlteW extent, all tend to reduce us td common standards ot
"manners, niorali artd' MhaVlour, to
ereate for us tho common standards
of value and to make us feel and
art alike In b'mir of emotldns and
. ON* ormitV Nl:cm\H\
"A certain amount or conformity
Is necessary and good If society
Is to funtttldtt and people are to
Jive and vWK• IrtgntHdr'. Tdfci riiUHti of
It will make robots of us,' fit cltl-
?x>r\k for1 ft' rfidatnrJirnp of1 a totalitarian state"; t
"The other weakness which 1 mentioned Is .the emphasis that we are
giving ahd tiie* imttpi'tantM Which wo
are attaching to a isensual material-
Ism; tbe Idea; for Ihstnnce, that
everyone Is' ehtltfied td artd should
have fabulous luxury without much
sense of responsibility to society
ahd without much sense- of the
relative values* of material things as
contrasted with things of the intellect and the spirit. There Is too.
I believe, ari over-emphasis on sex
in our society. 1 mean this in the
sense that i.pparehlly nothing can
he bought or sold without some
reference to Its sex' appeal! male1 or
femaile. The popular Idols or both
sexes arc Ihcredslngly the pin-up
girls ahd the collar-ad' diaie, the
bathing beauties of both sexes. 1
am not for a moment minimizing the
Importance and the tremendous
power of sex, but I do believe that
this over-emphasis upon It, combined with tbe lustiness that I mentioned earlier Is unhealthy and Is not
likely to produce men and women
,\vho can cope with* the touginess
of the Communist part of the world,
nor,, apart from these passing problems of riuniuh relationships, is It
likely to be good for ordinary human
beings ln a northail world."
.""peaking m   the   fuHds  available
for education th" doctor said:
"Limited financial resources mr.ke
it necc .viry to cons' Icr the relative values of the nursery school, of
gymnasia and theatres of residences for studenlfl from outlying
districts of agricultural schools,
Junior colleges and unlversil les.
AH of these are desirable and useful, tvnd, if finances were no object or problem, then vve should
provide the maximum of all of them
but, In Ihe circumstances all lhal
we can dn Is lo recommend and
strive after the best of these facilities we can afford, and ensure thai
they are used efficiently, fiilly and
for the wisest purposes, not only
lor Ihe children and young people
during school hoiirs, but, where
suitable, for the community as' a
whole* ut all  times.''
Emphasizing Hie Importance of
paying the teachers adequate salaries.  Dr.  Mackenzie' continued.
"The most Important item In our
system of formia 1 education, Is,
the teacher, and those of us responsible for Ihe administration of
educational system In Institutions
must do our utmost to atlil.cl and
Main Hie very best teachers that
vve can gel'. To do this, we must
make the position and the profession of teaching attractive in terms
of adequate salaries, reasoiiiibh
security of tenure, pensions, ele.
Kqually important Is llie prestige
and the sncli.l status whicli llie
community attaches to the position
of the teacher and the profession
df teaching. In both regards, our
society il'uHlig the past ')0 years']

by young people before coming lo
"Our young peopte lonny are wry
similar to all other generations of
young people In (he past. There are,
of course, superficial differences
growing .out of the differences In

more of others. The criticisms of
them grow In lhe main out of the
