The grateful pubsters in return presented the Premier with
a generous donation to the "Back

the program on the air.
Pubsters say they will use the
hat for the collection of offer-
ings at the Sunday prayer meetings and Social Credit rallies
they frequently sponsor in the
Publications Board offices.
Ubyssey staffers were in Edmonton for the Western Regional Canadian University Press
Conference when the presentation took place.
When not in use for collections,
the Premier's hat will be enshrined in the Ubyssey offices,

EDMONTON—(CUP) —Student newspapers from three western universities will be
flown to the University of Manitoba campus next week to help speed the formation of a
Western Inter-Collegiate Athletic Union.
Manitoba students vote November 13 to approve a $5 fee increase to finance a prairie
football league that would include Manitoba, Saskatchewan,  Alberta  and  British  Columbia.
Extra editions of the Ubysey, the Gateway, and the Sheaf will be air-freighted to the
Manitoba campus, for campus distribution before referendum.
The editions will be designed
Manitoba To Vote
On Football Loop
.... WINNIPEG—(CUP)—Students at the University of Manitoba will vote in a November 13 referendum on whether to
increase student fees by $5 to pay the cost of supporting a football team in a Western Canada Inter-collegiate loop.
AUS Grant
The bitterly contested Agricultural Undergraduate Society's budget came up for review before the Students Council last night and was raised
With no request for funds submitted, AMS Treasurer Al
Thackray budgetted the Society
$140. Agonized protest ensured
and finally resulted in the a-
brupt ending of the last general
A.U.S. turned in a budget
which asked for $805. After a
complete examination of this request, Thackray decided on an
additional grant to increase their
allotment to $175, and it was approved by the Council.
One reason for the belated increase was that Agriculture has
had a disproportionately large
number of late registering students. Total enrollment in the
faculty now stands at 151.
Discussing A.U.S.'s requested
budget, which he felt "didn't
show much thought", Thackray said that he considered
their grant "adequate in delation to their enrollment and
other undergrad societies." B»t
he added, "They (A.U.S.) likely
won't accept it. They'll go to
the general meeting asking for
Unless the Aggies are pacified
by this raise, their budget could
be a cause for fireworks at the
coming meeting.
The league is being considered
by universities in the West and
if there is general approval it
may go into operation next fall.
Julius Koteles, preslckm of
the Manitoba Students' Union,
Friday night said the proposed
inter-collegiate football team at
the university should be under
the control of the students since
they were paying for it. He suggested that the Students' Union
should have the major say in
the hiring of a football coach.
An editorial in the student
newspaper, the Manitoban, warned Friday that the university's
Board of Governors, if the referendum should result in approval
of football may turn down a
football team and instead insist
on a $5 tuition fee increase after
'finding that students are not so
poverty stricken."
University President H. H.
Saunderson, however, denied the
editorial's suggestion.
"If the referendum clearly indicated a big majority in favor
of football, the board would give
it careful consideration," he said.
"We are not trying to trick the
students in any way, but it would
be safe in saying that should
there be only a slight majority
we would be very reluctant to allow football to return to Manitoba."
to explain the athletic situation
on each of the three western
campi.  Athletic  officials at all
three universities agree that the
formation of tne WIAU hinges on
Manitoba's aceptance of the proposed fee increase.
The "airlift" operation was
conceived at the Western Regional Canadian University Press
Conference in Edmonton November 27. Delegates from the four
western college newspapers attended. Ubyssey delegates were
Sandy Ross, Ubyssey editor-ia-
chief; Pat Russell, managing editor; Jerry Brown, city editor; and
Carol Gregory, CUP editor.
Obstacles to acceptance of the
fee increase at Manitoba are numerous. Student officials report
about thestudents are only lukewarm about the scheme. Many
predict the fee increase proposal
will be defeated.
Administration officials have
also indicated opposition to the
plan. Mantoba president, Dr.
James Sanderson, stated Friday
students would get football only
if a large majority of students
voted "yes" on the referendum.
Since administration control
of student affairs is extensive,
many student leaders fear that
if the referendum were adopted,
the administration might later
force withdrawal from the WIAU
if the scheme proved too costly,
and divert the fee increase to
other channels not sanctioned by
Manitoban editor Reg. Skene
said Saturday he would have
to have assurance that this will
not happen before he will editorially endorse the proposed fea
At last night's AMS meeting, Students' Council:
1. Budgeted Agricultural Undergraduate Society an additional $35.
2. Passed a resolution to open Brock Lounge facilities one
lunch hour a week for worthy student functions, but only
provided there is no other place for them to be held.
3. Drafted a proposal for the forthcoming general meeting to read "that in future the constitution can only be am-
mended by a two-thirds majority at a general meeting or by
a similar majority in a referendum in which at least 15 percent
of the students vote.

Just One More Less
Let me say at the outset that I do not intend to deal with the phtotographer as a social
phenomenon. He is not a social phenomenon but an anti-social one, and the people who snatch
the camera from his hands and bang him over the head with it are perfectly justified.
Once the shutter has clicked upon an un-dignified moment, the vitim's absurdity is preserved for ever, like a fly in amber. And while you may, if you wish, sue a newspaper that declares your table manners would offend a hog, there is no legal retort to a photographer who
surprises you with your mouth agape and half a chicken inside.
Prize Ass
In it's inimitable small businessman's way, the Saturday
Evening Post has once again made a prize ass of itself.
This time, it's in reference to the popular song, "Sixteen
Tons" which bemoans the unhappy lot of a downtrodden
American coalminer, who "owes his soul to the company
In a recent issue, the Post devoted eleven inches of its
editorial page to assuring us that it really isn't so. The American coal miner, far from being miserable and downtrodden, is really quite a contented fellow; under American free
enterprise, he makes some $2.10 an hour, and drives a new
car. His children go to good schools ,and the Company looks
after his welfare with pension plans and presumbably, a free
turkey every Christmas.
Of course, what the Post says is true; in fact as far as we
can see, it's true enough to go without saying.
And so we're amused at the spectacle of this great 162-
page defender of the Rotarian way of life falling all over
itself to rebut an "attack" by a hillbilly singer, named Tennessee Ernie Ford.
Who are they trying to reassure? We don't know, but we
wish the Post would get over its cold-war jitters and start
displaying a little more tolerance and a little more faith.
Ever since the Cold War began, we've never been'allowed to forget what a tough time the average Russian has,
and how much better off we are by comparison.
Those "Grin And Bear It" cartoons that show Ivan dressed in rags, apparently subsisting on nothing but black bread
and hero medals, approximate the popular North American
conception of the average Russian's economic condition.
And so it comes as a stunning revelation to learn that
within a decade, Ivan will be living as high off the hog as we
If this state of afairs comes to pass—and the best authorities think it will—we will have to do some hard thinking
about the real advantages of our way of life. For in prosperous North America, we have slipped into the complacent attitude that our way is best simply because we have easy access
to television sets and refrigerators and new Chevrolets.
As long as we are sure Russia is Lower Slobbovia, it
is easy to believe that America is Paradise with power steering, and that Free Enterprise made it thus.
But when we face the fact that Russia will soon be as
prosperous as we are (TV in every home, plenty to eat and
drink, a fine vacation every year) we will have to jettison
a number of comfortable economic truisms of ours, and return to some of those fundamentals that prosperity seems
to have obscured.
We must relearn, apparently, that man does not live by
bread alone; and so we must again learn to prize our freedom,
not our prosprelly, ..l^ive all things. For freedom i.s what we
have, and what Russia, under Communism can never have;
and all the overfulfilled quotas in the world cannot alter this
Also we must see to it that our society is spiritually rich,
not just gadget-rich. With the 30-hour week on its way, the
question "What are we going to do with all our leisure?"
looms larger and larger. We've got to learn to use this leisure
to create a meaningful society which maintains a reference
beyond itself.
For without this larger frame of reference, no society can
endure. Unless we care to preserve and enlarge this vital
quality in our society, we'd better fill the libraries with engineering textbooks, replace the cathedrals with gas stations, and settle down to a wonderfully prosperous, utterly
circular existence.
Taking the broad view, however, there is no real cause for
alarm, because the average
nonentity never lived to see
his features in the publii prints.
I feel entitled to speak with
some authority on this matter,
having just completed an exhaustive study of press photography. To this end I have
carefully examined all the photographs in seven consecutive
issues of 46 leading metropolitan newspapers — literally
thousands of pictures. And
(although it seems almost astonishing) I found that this
huge assortment could be reduced to only nine basic photographs, or Archetintypes, and
which are as follows:
1. Gamal Abdel Nasser.
2. An automobile which almost but not quite, plunged off
a bridge. It hangs suspended
while the occupants "miraculously escape unhurt." If all
miracles would learn to occur
with such wonderful regularity
we might enjoy another Age of
3. A philanthropist handing
a check to the head of a worthy
4. A parakeet which perches amiably on the head of a
cat. For as long as I can remember, this cat has forborne
to eat the parakeet. Somewhere
there is a taxidermist who
could explain the marvel.
5. A philanthropist receiving a memorial plaque from
the head of a worthy organisation. The plaque expresses
6. The girl in a bathing suit
who has just been elected Miss
Whai-You-WUl. Her measurements are 57—22—36.
7. President Eisenhower,
8. Adlai Stevenson, snees-
9. A standard Rorschach
pattern which editors employ
promiscuously to represent the
aerial view of some calamity.
An arrow points confidently at
one of the vaguer blobs, which
the caption then identifies as
"the doomed trawler" or "the
crevasse where the luckless
climbers fell" or "the charred
wreckage of the plane"—depending on the species of disaster.
There may be other photographs in the newspapers, but
I have never seen them.
A good case might be made
for doing away with ail such
pictures, especially the last one.
No one but a newspaper editor
would imagine that an assortment of vague smears transfixed by an arrow could convey
much to the average reader. In
spite of this, however, the arrow has become so firmly embedded in contemporary journalism that it is now esteemed
for its own sake, as the mark
of a really high class photograph.
Observe: when the Minneapolis Star and Tribune chose to
advertise itself in the New
Yorker, it printed—over the
catchline "What makes a newspaper great?" mind you — a
photograph of a large crowd
listening to a distant speaker,
over whose teeny-tiny head
there hung, like the sword of
Damocles, the inevitable arrow.
This microscopic iigure was
identified as T. S. Eliot by the
text, which prattled glibly
about the "brilliant discourse"
which "earned for the 67-year-
old Nobel Prize winner an ovation remindful of those that
rattle the same Williams Arena
rafters during a Big Ten basketball game."
But when I peered at the indicated spot through a powerful lens I saw, not Mr. Eliot's
decorously poetic features, but
eight tiny block dots. Would
it be uncharitable to suggest
that identification under such
circumstances is far from certain?
What proof is offered by the
Star and Times that the
speaker was really T. S. Eliot
and not, say, Edgar Guest? It
might be answered that the
photography editor is a good
fellow and we may safely take
his word for it. Very well, but
how does he know? At such a
distance, one bard looks much
like another and the editor's
plight, to paraphrase still another poet, might be described
"I drew an arrow onto
the shot,
It indicates I know,
not what."
Nevertheless, I am willing to
concede, on the basis of my
study, that the future of photographic journalism is assured. I would also guess that an
ambitious photographer could
make his fortune at a single
stroke by catching General
Eisenhower in a bathing suit,
handing a check for the Suez
Canal to a sneezing General
Nasser, while a doomed trawler in the background disappears into a large crevasse.
Letters to the Editor
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I was somewhat distressed
over an article concerning faith
which appeared in your issue
of October 23. Although I am
in agreement with some of the
points made, there were a few
A biblical definition of faith
is "believing in what is not
seen as if it were seen." There
is no need of inspiring in anyone a greater faith in the
thousand and one different
things wc depend on each day.
But from thc Christian even-
golis's' point of view we need
such faith in God. Ho doesn't
ask you (I hope) to bring this
faith into being, but to let God
give it to you. I doubt whether there is such a thing a a
"modern" evangelist. Evangelism and revival have not
changed a great deal since Jos-
iah's day.
Of course anyone who is reconciled to God and has faith
in Him, must make decisions
on matters of doctrine. On this
level, "blind, dogmatic'' faith
is quite  intolerable.
I believe that to the honest
searcher experience will reveal
what teachings are tenable.   At
any rate faith which is not substantiated by experience has
very little value in doctrinal
matters. If the future is in
question, "hope" might be a
better term.
But on the subject of devils,
I disagree quite completely
with the aforementioned article. As far as I know, the
devil always loses when the
validity of something is tested.
Unfortunately (or fortunately for the devil) so much criticism of thc last century was
not well founded and rested too
much on presumption. .
Many of the less discriminating have been duped into applauding such science." If you
are up to date on your theology
you'll know that research of
recent years has pretty well
given that devil the knock-out
Christianity does not lose
where research is honest.
It i.s, however, obvious that
God will not reveal Himself to
him who tests the validity of
the most things (science docs
not share a foundation with
It is the wil] of God that
righteousness should consist in
faith   and  not   reason.  There's
nothing  wrong  with  reason—|
it just isn't enough.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In view of the recent criti-l
cism of my letter, I feel I must
point out that the film "Martin
Luther" was objected to not on
the grounds that it encouraged|
freedom of thought, but because it was contrary to the
beliefs of a section of students.
The banning of the film is no
discouragement to free thought
and the government of Quebec
has seen lit to take this step
for the reason I suggest.
Mr. Trevino's article of
Thursday, October 18, would
censure those who must force
the irresponsible to stay within
thc bounds of good taste. His
statements, if taken to their
logical conclusion, suggest the
complete abolition of censure-
ship, a prospect which must
shock any reasonable individual.
I feel that it is up to the
students of a University to set
an example of good sense and
good taste.

Parliament Closure
"I hope that closure will be used more in the future," declared Federal Minister of Fisheries James Sinclair Friday.
Replying to a question on the pipeline debate, he continued, "we have not the effeceive regulation of debate that
Australia and Britain have." Sinclair maintained that an eight-
month session discouraged young men running for Parliament.
He traced the origin of the
closure to the days when Irish
Nationalists held up the British
Parliament by filibustering. Our
form is more gentle than the
British, which brings a vote in
forty-eight hours.
The popular Minister of Fisheries and Member of Parliament
for the North Shore spoke in
Physics 200 under the sponsorship of the Liberal Club. His
speach dwelt with the career
of the politician.
Sinclair described the life of
a member of Parliament by quoting prizefighter Jack Dempsey,
"you are a hero one day, a bum
the next."
Tracing his career, he recalled
his election on a health-insurance
platform in 1937, "I made eight
ty-four speeches in twelve days,"
he said.
"Getting elected is a combination of your own standing and
that of your friends, the standing of the national party, and
finally the campaign put on by
the national party."
Life of a back-bencher is rugged, the best hope is to specialize in one field. He concluded,
"the next election is like a horse
race—the best horse doesn't always win."
In reply to a question concerning American trawlers fishing in coastal waters, Sinclair
stated the greater usefulness
of a twelve-mile limit in conserving fish, as opposed to the
present -three mile limit.
Reading Of
Richard II
Plans for the dramatized reading of "Richard II," the English
Department first major theatre
venture of the year, will get
underway at an organizational
meeting Wednesday noon.
Casting for the reading, to be
presented on January 21 and 22,
will be open to the entire student body, campus drama supervisor Miss Dorothy Somerset
In the dramatized reading, the
English Department hopes to develop "an exciting form of theatrical presentation'' which will
encourage many students to participate. The program is aimed
at cutting hours of rehearsals
and memorization of lines.
Plans for the readings will
be outlined by Miss Somerset
at the meeting to be held in
Arts   206   at   12:30   Wednesday.
Tryouts for parts will be held
in the Frederic Wood Theatre
Thursday and Friday between
1:30 and 5:30.
Professors Akrigg ;md Steinberg have proposed arranging
noon-hour lectures in connection
with the performances. Special
symbolic costumes are being
planned and a scenic background
will be designed by Cliff Robinson. The CBC will also asist
in setting up an amplifying system.
He maintained in answed to
further questioning that C. D.
Howe was an able man who
stood up to the Tories, causing
himself to be disliked.
People today in Canada elect
their oppositions provmcially,
rather than federally, and therefore the most effective opposition comes from the back-benchers. "People," he concluded,
"blame us for a one-party system, but they themselves did it."

"Todays economy is drifting
toward inflation," Jerry Goeujon, president of the Nation Reform Party, said Friday.
Goeujon speaking in Arts 100
to an audience of 40, said that
the Socialists are basically people
who "have a desire to share
wealth and preach equality" and
to "take from tho rich and to
give to the poor." He used a an,
example the deflated condition of
England today, but did not, mention  Russia.
"The N.R.P. is the only political party which has true ideals.
We believe in competition and a
world goverment to stop wars
and in tolerence," Goeujon concluded.

"They're all Westernized these

The girls, Romeril and 15,000
students were all attending Istanbul University whose numerous
faculties range from Law to
Engineering. In fact the only-
Faculty differenece between Istanbul and UBC, Romeril said, is
that at the former Agriculture

institutes and not at the University.
"There is no student autom-
ony at Istanbul," Romeril said.
"The students have no vote in
the University administration
and are separated by a vast academic gulf from the Faculty."
"It's a much better atmosphere
at UBC in that respect," Romeril
said. "We have a far greater
chance at getting to know professors through clubs and friendly outside-class discussions."

Censors, Shows Gina
Filmsoc patrons Tuesday will be privileged to decide on
the possible impairment of Queen Elizabeth's morals by the
delightful movie "Les Belles de Nuit."
This French masterpiece raised
a furor when squeamish British
censors could not decide on a
showing of a rear view of Gina
Lollobrigida to the Queen. The
American censors prohibited thc
showing of the scene.
If Gina delights, the whole
production will enchant the
viewer. Similar to Danny
Kayes' famous "Life of Walter
Mitty," the plot portrays the
hero escaping from reality into
a world ol dreams.
Gerard Phillipe plays the heroj
in a fairy tale of beautiful women and successful opera writing. A fairy tale for adults,
"Les Belles de Nuit" (Beauties
of the Night) will thrill all on
campus. Even French students
may disregard the English subtitles and further their studies.

A new $10,000 per year grant
to the University of B.C. by
Sherritt-Gordon Mines Lid. for
work in mining and metallurgy
was announced last week.
Announcement was made by
UBC Chancellor Sherwood Lett
at the official opening of the
University's new physical metallurgy  building.
The 875,000 twai-storoy rein-
farced concrete structure was of-
imially opened by Eldoii L,

Doug Babcock, Teacher Training.
What's to bo done? Most students polled fell that UBC should
pull out of the Evergreen League.
"We're out of our class," Terry
McBurney, 3 Commerce said,
while Walter Burgess, 2 Arts
agreed adding, "we should just
play Canadian football."
Roy Perestrom, Teacher Training felt that the low weekend
scores "are pretty indicative of
the type of competition UBC will
continue to meel if we stay in
the Evergreen League. But not
Canadian," he said, "the distances are too great and the financing would be too difficult."
One-sided scoring was given
a reason for the poor local attendance by UBC co-eds Dorothy
Hardie, 1st Arts, and Sandra
Parkinson. 1 Home Ec. "I don't
even know when the games are
going to be played." Miis Hardie

he pointed out. If UBC had some
kind of financial aid for players,
even if it was only a game-bonus,
it would help morale, he felt.
"How do downtowners view
UBC football?" According to
Nick Kayk, 3 Agriculture, "it
just proves the general public's
theory that University life is just
one big party."
Beth Chilcott, 3 Education,
added more charitably that low
football scores didn't affect
UBC's public standing in general.
"They regard as as students and
not as football players," she said,
"and maybe that's just as well,"
she added grimly.
Kim Husband, 1 Law was the
only student among those polled
to say a kind word for UBC
football and its players. "The
score doesn't matter but the
game does," he said. "L'BC just
hasn't got the volume of players
the U.S. Colleges has. but the
coaches and the players do the
best they can and no one can do
uny more."

College of Puget Sound Loggers broke loose for 40 point?
in the second and fourth quarters Saturday to defeat the UBC
Thunderbird football squad 53-6 at C.P.S.
The Loggers capitalized on three UBC fumbles within their
30 yard line to score three touchdowns in the second quarter
and break the game wide open.
Puget Sound opened the scoring after six minutes of play,
when a 30 yard pass play on

At Brockton Point, the Oarsmen appeared to have put the

However, Varsity recovered

many passes went astray to the

tested Varsity goal-keeper Clive
Hughes time and again from

All Celtic's goals came in the
first twenty minutes of play, the
first two on "power plays"' that
poured through the 'Birds defence like "water through a

on a direct foul shot from well
outside the penalty area. The
shot from old pro Jimy Spencer's powerful left foot gave
Hughes no chance.
