Actress - Critic Calls
Revue 'Planned Riot'
, EDITOR'S NOTE—Feeling that a pubstcr's critique of
the smashingly, soakingly successful "My Dog Has Fleas
Revue by pubsters would be slightly biased, the editor
has asked Players' Club star Eve Newitt to do the scathing. Take It away, Eve, (and hide it).
"My Dog Has Fleas Revue" Thursday went over in spite
^ of itself.
Probably the best planned riot
ever staged, tiie Revue staggered
slowly through an hour and half
of the most un-co-ordinated, unrehearsed and sometimes funniest hi jinx seen on the campus
for a long time.
Much of the credit for the
success of the revue went to a
full house, which went all out
to get into the spirit of it.
Deserting the script, if there
ever was one, the cast threw
everything that came to their
minds at the audience which
threw back paper darts, oranges,
magazines, streams of water and
plenty of comments. \
From the start—when a voice
on the loud speaker told the audience to drop dead—to the curtain
call of the "cast of thousands," it
was a riot.
Congratulations to Margie McNeill as Millicent, thc Sorority
Queen, Walt Young as "the Boy
Beta," her lover, and Helen Donnelly as the undercover agent—
and only as the undercover
Otherwise notable were the
"extras"—the sorority sisters,
real or otherwise, who couldn't
seem to keep their minds on
what was going on, and the case
of mass stage fright which made
members of student council
keep their backs to thc audience
all the time they were on stage.
And a special bouquet to the
piano player, Brian Guns, who
doggedly supplied the background music, only stopping to
throw things back at the audience.
Mum On IFC
Information on Inter-Fraternity Council's committee to investigate "gentlemen's agreements" in fraternities has been
denied by IFC public relations
officer Bruce   McWilliams.
McWilliams said this week
that not until information was
available would he release particulars.
The committee, formed November 4, ended Lambda Chi
Alpha fraternity's move to secede from  IFC.
The committees' chairman, its
number of members and activities  are still   unknown.
Killeen  Calls
Meet Nov. 29
Undergraduate Societies Committee chairman Jim Killeen has
called an important meeting of
the U.S.C. Monday to discuss
the Committee's new constitution.

controversial clause which would
have given U.S.C. power to pass
motions which could not be defeated by council unless repealed
by a general A.M.S. meeting.
All undergraduate societies

a reduced rate on their fare. This form must be filled out
before they buy the ticket.
Chairman of the Varsity Revue, Allan Thackray, tendered
his resignation this week because "the Student Council has
not granted any moneys whatsover" to the production.

CLU  Challenges
Hotelman's Denial
A Vancouver hotel owner's denial his hotel practised discrimination has been challenged by campus Civil Liberties
Union president who headed a survey of city hotels to check
on discrimination. *—	
Freda Messerschmidt reported
Thursday St. Helen's Hotel, 1161
Granville St., was one of fiv.c
city hotels found by the survey
to practice racial discrimination.
Earlier George Cillis, co-owner
of the hotel had denied it was
"hotel policy" to bar colored
people from his hotel following
a charge by East Indian student
M. Athr Ali, research assistant
with UBC Institute of Fisheries.
Mr. Ali claimed he was refused service Friday after the
waiter told him, "we don't serve
mixed couples."
Miss Messerschmidt stated Gil-
lis was "wrong" when he denied
the charge.
Miss Messerschmidt said she
and her survey team partner Mr.
Emmett Holmes were refused
service at St. Helens by both a
waiter and a bartender who told
the team it was against "hotel
policy" to serve them.
"That's my order. -I'd like to
serve you but I'm afraid I'll lose
my job," the bartender said, according to Miss Messerschmidt.
The CLU head added a white
couple who witnessed the incident expressed indignation and
called the team over for a drink,
but a waiter gestured they would
be cut off service.
Twenty-five hotels were toured by survey members. Five
teams,  each   composed   of   one

Socred Bill
While Social Credit was being
bounced on the banjo strings
of "My Dog Has Fleas" a less
well attended, but no less decisive bouncing of the party was
taking place at the Model Parliament Thursday.
Campus Liberals, Conservatives, CCF and the official opposition of the LPP defeated
Socred's Monetary Reform Bill-
called the "funny money bill"
by Archie McGugan-by 32 votes
to 16.
Socreds Monetary Reform Bill,
which proposed the establishment of a monetary commission
by parliament to regulate the
national economy, was lashed
by McGugan.
He said the "funny money
bill" was a "political stunt" by a
party which was "encouraging
monopoly and depleting the provincial resources."
As an example of encouragement of monopoly by the Socred
Government, McGugan cited
the '20% to Canada, 80% to the
States Hydro Electric deal with
Kaiser Aluminum.
reply to Thackray's criticism said
Thursday, "Thackray has made
no attempt to contact me about
"I don't know what he's talking about," said Bray.
Criticizing the. Council for giving no indication of any future
money allotment. Thackray stated, "I have not been able to pay
my expenses."
Brey hinted at the existence of
a standing AMS allotment for
purposes of staging an annual
"Blue and Gold Revue."
Thackray's resignation came
in a letter to AMS President
Dick Underhill dated November
A UBC Varsity Revue was
staged Inst year under the direction of Ernie Parrault and Eric
Nicol. Thackray was appointed
chairman of a Varsity Revue
committee last year to "determine the feasibility of staging a
Blue and Gold Revue some future year." '
He attacked the "apathy" of
UBC students. "Not one" skit
has been submitted to the committee even after repeated appeals for entries. Offers of $50
and $100 prizes for the best skits
still failed to bring forth entries,
Thackray said.
Referring to this criticism
Thackray stated, "I have here
pictured my sorry impressions
of how the UBC students have
supported me."
"Conflicting productions" and
"Antagonisms" by other campus
societies, were criticized by
Sex, Kisses, Rule
Marriage, Not Cash
LONDON-(CUP)-"Would you
like to kiss a cash register or go
to bed with an 'understanding'?"
This was the answer to a
statement that marriage should
be based on "understanding, cooperation and financial security,
not sex."
In a debate at the University
of Western Ontario the Men of
Arts tilted with the women of
Nursing   on   the   question,   "Is
sex the hub of the social wheel?"

At noon today UBC may
count itself in the ranks of the
cultured universities when its
first student orchestra, in conjunction with the equally new
glee club, give their initial
concert in tha Auditorium.
Until noon today, UBC was
the only Canadian University
without a student symphony
orchestra and a glee club. But
thanks to the endeavors of the
Musical Society, Mr. Abys Ma-
tys and Mr. Harry Price, this
situation has now been rectified.
Mussoc is sponsoring the
whole show. Mr. Matys, who
studied music in Holand, played with some of Europe's finest orchestras and the Texas
Symphony Orchestra, and is
at present a first violinist with
the Vancouver Symphony, is
the student orchestra's professional conductor.
Harry Price, who has gained
national fame over CBC's
"Summertime" and as musical
director of the Theatre Under
the Stars, is the glee club's director.
Admission to the symphony's
world premiere is 10c.

On Education
North American universities are confronted with a
dilemma which needs to be faced realistically. It is this:
How to provide higher education for more and more people
and at the same time fully utilize the intelligence of each
The dilemma becomes apparent in the growing complaint
that the Bachelor of Arts degree is becoming discredited.
This is mainly because there are now more holders of a
Bichelor of Arts degree than ever before—a consideration of
simple supply and demand. In addition, however, it is true
that a B.A. degree can be obtained by almost anyone, or by
doing and learning almost nothing.
Yet raising the standard of university studies is a defective Solution to the problem of the B.A. Where should the
line be drawn? Exactly how intelligent should one be to be
able to win a p.A.?
We cannot restrict university education to those of
a certain high intelligence. We cannot make greater use of
the brains of the more intelligent at the cost of neglecting
the brains of the less intelligent. If anyone needs a university education, it is the person with lower intelligence.
Our civilization has a high regard for higher liberal education because it makes for better and more civilized human
beings. And shouldn't every member of our civilization be
better, and more civilized?
As our standard of living rises, we will be able to afford to offer more and more of our people more and more
liberal education. It would be a mistake to arbitrarily shut
out those below a certain level of intelligence.
This can certainly be done at present in the field of
technical education; our economy requires only a certain
number oi engineers or doctors. Yet in the future, we will
reach a stage where an extremely high percentage of the
population will require this higher training. Then, both
liberal and technical education will be face,d with much the
same dilemma.
A solution must be found. The encouragement of adult
education is rather a makeshift one. A solution is more likely
to lie in the complete reorganization of our universities.
The curriculum must be organized so that it offers a serious
challenge to the highest of intelligences, and yet will not discourage those of average or less intelligence.
One solution would be setting different periods of time
for the entire course of studies. Geniuses would win a degree in a year; dunces would take eight years. This would be
unobjectionable in the field of technical education, where
an always limited demand will require some means of elimination; but it would be unfair in the field of liberal education.
The reorganization should probably stress a change in
quality rather than time; a whole set of liberal arts degrees—
and eventually technical degrees—would be offered, each
with a different value. Students would all graduate at the
same time, but some would win superior degrees because
their studies were more extensive.
If this is a horrifying thought to traditionalist academicians, they must provide a superior proposal—and adopt
it as soon as possible.
On   Assistance
Dr. Harry Hawthorn spoke for the UN Club last month
on "Technical Assistance and Underdeveloped Countries."
We do not disagree with Dr. Hawthorn's praise for the
good work being clone by UNESCO and otehr agencies.
What we question is the subject chosen by Dr. Hawthorn
and the U.N. Club.
Asia needs aid, today-there is no questioning this. But
the important point is not so much how to fill this need
as why  the need  arises.
It cannot be attributed solely, if at all, to the rfceent
world war. Nor can it bo blamed on the internal strife existing in many colonial countries. The latter is not a cause
but a result.
Asia has needed "aid" since the "civilizers" arrived.
That is precisely the point. The Asian people suffer from the
economic conditions created for them—or is it in spite of
them?—by the gentlemen adventurers of economic development.
The economic conditions suffered by Asian populations
today are defined by the mineral extracting and manufacturing industries existing in their countries.
It is easy to see that in the correction or elimination of
the misery-creating forces in Asia lies thc permanent solution.
It is better to devote energy to the correction of economic distress than to pursue a hapless, never-ending policy
of "assistance" towards it.
Better lo eliminate lhal ease,
Student  Problems
Revealed,  Solved
World University Service
(previous to 1952, the International Student Service) was
founded in 1925. The furtherance of International understanding through the integre-
gation of the world university
community in cooperative relief and educational projects
has been the chief purpose of
the organization's activities
since that time.
From 1939 to 1949 World
University Service was the executive instrument for a valuable work of educational relief which included most helpful services to prisoners of war.
Since 1945, World University
service has made substantial
progress, not only in meeting
the pressing post-war demands
for university student relief
and rehabilitation in Europe,
but also in relation to the vast
problem posed by the Asian
It was the first international
student organization to make
effective contact with post-war
student committees in Asia.
That this approach was made
by an Asian national created
a very favorable impression
among Asian students, and
overcame many of the suspicions attaching to a western
organization. Approximately
half of the strength of World
University Service is now
drawn from these Asian Com-
mitteesvWorld University Service is actively supported by
the World's Christian Federation; Pax Romans, and the
World Federation of Jewish
The Canadian Committee of
W.U.S. was organized in 1939.
In structure, World University
Service of Canada is dominated
by an Annual Assembly consisting of one student and one
faculty representative from the
local committee in each university, together with delegates
from the National Conference
of Canadian universities, the
National Federation of Canadian University Students, the
Hillel Foundation , in Canada,
the Student Christian Movement of Canada, the Canadian
Federation of Newman Clubs,
the Federation Canadienne des
Universities Catholiques and
the Canadian Federation of!
Catholic College Students.
The basic objection of World
University Service of Canada
is to effect a long range constructive action for peace
through a two-fold program of
relief and education.
The relief program has hitherto been completely financed
by money raising among Canadian students as a practical
gesture of goodwill and a sense
of responsibility towards fellow
Since 1948 Canadian students
and faculty have given more
than $260,000 from their own
pockets for the relief of students in other countries. In
addition, W.U.S. has brought
more than 100 foreign students
to Canada who have continued
their studies in Canadian universities.
Since 1947 World University Service has drawn its substantial strength and national
influence within the Canadian
university community from
carefully organized campus
committees, of which there
were twenty-two in October,
1854. These local committees
have taken a consistent lead
in the  above  fund raising.
The educationl program has
as its aim the development of
responsible and informed thinking about international affairs
by Canadian students. The
main method of achieving this
has been to give carefully selected groups of Canadian students an International Seminar
or guided travel experience
through which they may come
to a sympathetic understanding
of the problems of other nations
and their attitude to Canada.
The dollar levy contributed
by UBC students has been used
in accordance with the AMS
rules, primarily for the promotion of exchange scholarships that would help further
understanding of democracy,
its problems and its aims. Last
year exchanges were held with
German and Japan, while this
year exchanges of students have
been made with universities in
India, Germany and Norway.
Plans are underway to initiate
exchange scholarships with Tan-
gynika, Indonesia, Malaya, S.
Africa and Greece.
By helping to establish and
develop practical projects, such
as student health services, hostels, rest centres, and various
types of cooperatives. WUS
achieves far more than these
pioneer projects would suggest
at first sight. Such action, with
its apparent concrete results,
draws attention to the multi-
city of student problems and
demonstrates that they can be

TORONTO-(CUP)-Students on
the average cannot earn enough
during the summer to cover
their university expenses it was
revealed by a campus poll.
The results of the survey show
that men between their first
and second year earn approximately $600 and women between
$200 and $300.
The figures did not represent
total summer earnings, but only
the portion which was not used
for living costs during the summer'and was available for academic expenses.
The survey was condocted in
consultation with the psychology
department and is based on a
balanced sample of students.
The survey suggests that as
many as 200 students h7?e dropped out of the U of T ibis year
through lack of funds.
The overall pictures presented
by the survey shows that summer earnings have decreased
over   the   last   three   yars.
This year the average student
was able to earn during the
summer less than half the money
required for academic expenses.
Registrar Charles Wood announced Wednesday, Her Ma-
jestry's treasurer has agreed
to increase the Sterling Trans

increase is applicable to the

In the shape of a plastic Teddy
bear, along with a note reading:
"The Piggy Bank has long been
a symbol of thrift, but we have
decided that the pig cannot be
both good and bad. It cannot

to fill the bill."

With Eilers.  Western. PLC
Thunderbirds Out For Totem Crown
UBC Thunderbirds, Vancouver Eilers and the Evergreen
Conference teams from Western Washington and Pacific Lutheran
will be attractions in Friday and Saturday night double headers
of the Totem Tournament at the Memorial Gym.
Western meets Pacific Lutheran in the 7:30 opener Friday
and UBC will take on the Eilers, whom the Birds beat two weeks
ago 61-56, at 9. Those same Birds are sporting a 3 to 4 win record.
The two losers will meet Saturday at 7:30 while the winners
will meet for the Totem championship at 9 p.m. Predictions?
Look for the Birds to meet PLC in the finale.
Pomfret will be dressing the same squad that beat the St.
Martin's Rangers twice. He will also be adding Gary Taylor and
Ernie Nyhaug, who are finally finished with football for another
Should the Birds meet PLC they will be running into much
the same height they beat last week. Pirate centre Nick Kelderman
stands 6'7". He will be helped in the stratosphere by forwards Phil
Nordquist and Charlie Geldaker, who both reach to 6'4".
PLC coach Marv Harsh will probably be using Den Rodin and
Jack Sinderson at guards.
Western's height comes mainly in the form of centre Jack
Stewart at 6'5". Returning letterman Bob Stone, 6.1", and Bob
Hoover round out the forward wall.
...John McLeod
• Herb Forward
Connaught high grad Paul Buday and Gary Radliff will be
Bill MacDonald's rear wall.
Eilers will be back with the same club the Birds beat, but
with a few changes. Bill Bell and John Forsyth will all be' in
better shape. Starry Bob Groholski is lost to the Jewelers, having
taken the ferry boat to Alberni, the hotbed of hoopla.
Pomfret is promising nothing, preferring to let his team do
the talking but the Birds should win at least one game. PLC
are the cold fact probables for the Championship because they
have always been tough, and look as good this year.
Whoever wins, it shapes up to be a great display of basketball, and a bargain for the student price of 50c. Athletic privilege
cards will be honoured as usual.
Bring your girlfriend, your mother, the kids, the dog, anybody.
It might be nice if the cheerleaders were given a crowd to cheer
at for a change.

As a first year Arts student considering your future career, why not
enquire about Chartered Accountancy? It is a fine profession, offering
interest, variety, opportunity and substantial rewards.
A new scheme has been developed—the B.Comm-C.A. Plan—by which,
through taking a combined course of University studies in the summer and
practical training in a Chartered Accountant's office in the winter (on a
salary basis), you can obtain your B.Comm. degree and become a C.A. in a
shorter time than if you were to take your B.Comm. first and then your
C.A. afterwards.
