Shaw   Festival
By SYLVIA SHORTHOUSE
The Shaw Festival on the UBC campus next week
is an advent marking many firsts. It will mean a once-in-
a-lifetime theatrical experience as well as an opportunity
to hear distinguished speakers discuss the Irish playwright.
A new page in the history of Canadian theatre will
be written with the production of "Back to Methuselah,"
being presented in its entirety for the first time in Canada.
"No other lunatics will ever want to produce 'Methuselah,' " Shaw said after the first production of the play
in 1922. And indeed the play has been staged only six
times. The fact that the playwright himself recognized the
innumerable difficulties entailed in producing.,one of the
world's longest plays, emphasizes the magnitude of the
undertaking.
The four-hour production in the UBC auditorium next
Friday and Saturday nights will be a condensed version
of the play which originally took three nights to perform.
The play will also mark another first in Vancouver
theatre as the entire play will be staged with projected
scenery by CBC television set designer Cliff Robinson.
Here is the schedule of events for next week's Shaw Centennial Festival:
MONDAY. JAN. 16. 12:30—"Bernard Shaw—A Goad to
the Intellect" by Dean Chant in the Auditorium. Admission
free.
MONDAY, JAN. 16, 8:30 p.m.—"Highlights of Shaviana"
—Readings from Shaw by Lister Sinclair in the Auditorium.
Admission 75c, Students 50c.
TUESDAY. JAN. 17. 12:30—"The Quintessence of Shaw"
by George Woodcock in the Auditorium, Admission free.
TUESDAY. JAN. 17, 8:30 p.m. — 'Shaw's Politics" by
Professor David Corbett in the University Faculty Club. Admission free.
WEDNESDAY. JAN. 18. 12:30—"Sinclair on Shaw" by
Lister Sinclair in the Auditorium. Admission free,
WEDNESDAY, JAN. 18. 8:30 p.m. —"Shaw the Playwright" by George Woodcock in Physics 200. Admission free.
THURSDAY. JAN. 18. 12:30—Film of "Caesar and Cleopatra" in the Auditorium.  Students only.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. JAN. 20 • 21. 7:15 p.m. —
"Back To Methuselah" by George Bernard Shaw, produced in
a condensed version in the Auditorium. Refreshments during
intermission. Admission $1.50 and $1.00. Students 75c. Re--
freshments included.
The series of events during "Shaw Week," under a
committee headed by Dr. M. W. Steinberg of the English
Department, and the UBC Fine Arts Committee under
B. C. Binning, will revolve around Shaw as a political
thinker, philosopher, dramatist and critic.
Noted Canadian playwright and dramatist Lister Sinclair will perform readings from the works of Shaw before
afternoon and evening audiences on Monday and Wednesday.
Professor George Woodcock, British biographer, literary critic and broadcaster, will be one of three other
speakers who will discuss the works and philosophy of
Shaw.
The festival will be opened on Monday noon in the
auditorium by Dean S. N. F. Chant who will discuss his
personal impression of Shaw and the influence he has
wrought upon his generation in an address entitled "Bernard Shaw—A Goad to the Intellect."
Tuesday night Professor David Corbett of the Department of Economics will speak on Shaw's political
philosophy, "The Quintessence of Shaw."
The film of Shaw's play "Caesar and Cleopatra" will
be shown by the UBC Film Society to a university audience Thursday noon. Produced by Gabriel Pascal in the
early 40's, the film stars Vivien Leigh, Claude Rains and
Victor Mature.

Worthwhile
This week seems like a particularly appropriate time to
pause for a moment and consider just what it is that makes
university life worthwhile aside from scholarship.
The value of years spent at university in no small measure
ean be judged by the number of activities that take place outside the lecture room and yet within the university community.
Perhaps because of its fortunate location, or for a number of
other reasons, a very real community exists here at UBC.
No university in Canada offers a more extensive and diversified program of events than does this university. Many are
sponsored solely by the students, many by the faculty and
many are jointly sponsored.
Perhaps the activity most unique to UBC is the noon
hour lecture sponsored by anyone of a multitude of clubs.
Today for instance, Dr. Brock Chisholm, former head of the
World Health Organization, will speak in Physics 200 at noon.
Dr. Chisholm is just one of a parade of interesting speakers
who have appeared and will continue to appear before kmeh-
■ninchmg audiences.
Earlier this week the UBC Alumni Players Club, who.
last year brought honour to the university by winning the
Dominion Drama Festival with the production of "The Crucible," presented this year's production of "Liliom" in the
regional trials of the same festval.
The School of Architecture scored another first this week
with the Campus Art Gallery in the basement of the Libary
that depicts man as he is influenced by the elements of architecture. It is a breath-taking display unique to most North
American universities, and will run for two more weeks and
should be seen by every student.
The Special Events Committee has done an outstanding
fob this year in presenting many renowned personalities and
tj»e program for this term ranging from Dr. Chisholm to the
Modern Jazz Quartet promses to be even better.
The intramural program is bigger than ever and we have
a hustling, winning basketball team that calls for a crowded
gym each game time.
Next week the McGoun Cup debates sound off with our
team competing here and at Alberta and we hope that this
year the Cup will reside on this campus. At the same time
next week Mardi Gras in Outer Space will be in full swing
at the Commodore and it is expected that over $3000 will be
raised to aid those stricken with muscular dystrophy.
The outstanding event at the University this year will
be the Shaw Centennial program which begins Monday and
ends Saturday. We are the first university in the world to
mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of George Bernard
Shaw and the program that is planned is worthy of any university in the world. Elsewhere on these pages the program
is described in detail. A wide enorugh program is planned to
provide some interest for every student on the campus.
We have just picked two weeks out of the university year
to describe and we have by no means mentioned every activity
going on. We at UBC can be proud of the full and busy life
of our community and any student that is not participating
in it is sadly short-changing himself.

Christine
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In the January 5 issue of
The Ubyssey there appeared on
the editorial nage an article
dealing with Christine Jorgen-
sen.
To the mind of the present
writer this article seemed not
only pointless but malicious,
snide, and entirely unworthy
of a university publication.
Capitalizing on the wording
of an advertisement which
billed Miss Jorgensen as "the
world's most talked about person", your writer comments
that because the word person
was used instead of a personal
pronoun "they aren't sure" if
she is male or female. Further
on in the article he himself
pretends to be unsure which
pronoun to use in reference to
her. Miss Jorgensen has been
granted formal recognition as
a woman by the United States
government and there is therefore not the slightest reason for
your writer's pseudo quandry.
His sole point in making an
issue of the matter would appear to be to draw a cheap
laugh at the expense of Miss
Jorgensen.
In speaking of her present
engagement in the city he goes
on "perhaps it is indicative of
something that people . . . will
pay money to see her." "Perhaps it is just natural curiosity." One wonders just what
it would be other than that.
Any person who distinguishes
himself or herself from the
mass of people in any way
whatever evokes interest, and
is it not natural that one who
has in such a radical way, associated with some of the
deepest taboos inculcated by
our civilization, distinguished
herself from the majority of
people should evoke a corresponding public interest and
curiosity?
Your writer, however, has
his own answer as to why
people might attend her performance. He says "Perhaps
some people want to see if
they too should make the
change."
This remark refers to certain rumours surrounding Miss
Jorgensen and is a snide implication that people attending the performance are possibly doing so in conjunction
with certain overt, covert, or
latent proclivities in a specific
direction. There are those who
might consider this remark in
particular and the editorial
outburst in general the manifestations of a defense mechanism on the part of the writ- .
er of same.
His parting remark that Miss
Jorgensen should be in a zoo
rather than a night club is despicable for its unwarranted
malice and betrays upon the
part of its writer a profound
lack of knowledge of the subject of human sexuality.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor,
may I say that this article with
its written and implied views
is quite unworthy of . your
paper and, indeed, unworthy
of any humane, educated person.
Yours very truly,
Arts Student.
MARJORIE   MORNINGSTAR
The  Girl Who-
Went Back Home
Reviewed by Nora Magid
The New Republic
The moral is: if one's destiny
is suburbia, there is no point
in seeking to "me en soirees"
rather than "• tee dull housewife with a Mg engagement
ring." The moral Is also that
a man who has written an interesting book from a masculine point of view (The Caine
Mutiny) shouldn't push his luck
too far by trying to- reverse the
procedure. Af one point in her
life. Marjorie Morgenstern
finds that she is "very bored
with the problems of being a
girl." Herman Wouk's problem
is plainly that he has never
been one. and he eannot quite
manage to tell a girl's story
from a girl's point of view.
Marjorie Momingstar is soap
opera with psychological and
sociological props.
It's heroine starts out as a
lovely seventeen-year-old, who,
having made the transition
from the Bronx to Central Park
West, is reluctant to take the
next step. She refuses to be
"the respectable girl, the mother
of the next generation, all tricked out to appear gay and carefree and girlish, but with a terrible threatening dullness jutting through, like the gray
rocks under the spring grass
in Central Park." She yearns
instead to flower from Morgenstern to Morningstar '*. . . her
drab name turned into an incantation, a name that could
blaze and thunder on Broadway." Eventually, she marries
well, the vision fades; but
there's a long, long trail <565
pages) awinding into the land
of her dreams; and while every
step she takes in the direction
of Broadway   only put* her
more surely on the road to
Mamaroneck, there are significant detours.
The first is to an adult camp
her mother labels Sodom where
she meets Noel and Life. Her
best friend briefs her: "Really,
your folks have given you a
terrible upbringing. You seem
to live in some pink-and-white
dreamworld, where all the men
are Galahads and all the girls
are lily maids at Astolat, ex-
jcept they eat kosher food.
Margie, you're an infant."
Momentarily adrift, she has to
become an unsuccessful actress
and an unwilling mistress before she can become Shirley,
the prototype of all she has
been raised to want.
The story is told In the third
person. Mr. Wouk tries to see
it all obliquely from her perspective, and the effort proves
too much. Marjorie is disconcertingly girlish ("It was a
terrific release to kiss Noel").
Mr. Wouk also thinks that girls
in their teens wear rouge before they wear lipstick, walk
arm-in-arm, call one another
dear and darling and baby,
punctuate their sentences with
gee and gosh and gad, think
exclusively in hyperbole.
The men are as unbelievable
as the ladies. Noel, the Greek
God, who is dedicated to dissolution is nothing if not articulate; he regularly announces
his own motivation—his crippled arm, his OeSipus complex,
his early seduction by an older
woman, his anger at and attraction to what constitutes being Jewish. Set up in opposition
to him is Mike Eden, the other
man, whose grandfather has
technically freed him by changing the family name of Einstein, but Mike carries his
burden of guilt and he atones
by smuggling Jews out of Germany—tne only political note
in a book notable for omission
since it takes place in the '30's.
Tiie general problem is that
where Marjorie wants Noel for
a husband, he wants her for
a mistress. He relinquishes her.
By the time he is ready to
marry her, It is too late. Mike
Eden has freed her for the
triumph of conventional destiny—a successful prosperous
professional xaen, who can give
her a white house in the suburbs. The husband takes her
despite the fact that they both,
recognize her to be a cripple,
morally. She knows that she
will never again see on his
face the pure happiness that
had shone there during the
drive across the George Washington Bridge in the sunset. He
loved her. He took her as she
was, with her deformity . . .
^ that could no longer be helped;
a permanent crippling like a
crooked arm.
The environment Wouk
creates is vivid and enormously
complex. It crouches on economic mobility—the moves from
the Bronx to the Upper West
Sid* to the suburbs, the compromises at Hunter between
the Jewish and the Christian
sororities for pol'ticil control,
and the relationship of City
College to Ivy League students;
the conflicts between the older,
immigrant generation—sweet,
squashed, and loving—and the
younger, growing up in a world
that includes Freud and perk
and the Unitarian Church; the
flight from and to Jewishness.
The fascinating cultural
scene ia. however, backdrop*
to the banal love story. THE UBYSSEY

NOTED FASHION DESIGNER and commentator Maurice Gibbons predicted little
success .at the Pep Meet for this year's
newest fashion—the single breasted suit.
Designer Heb Hebenton, left, said it was
"NOT   SOPHISTICATED"
offered as the perfect solution for crowded
cocktal parties. Gibbons, running on a
platform calling for a return to milk drinking, captured the Mardi Gras King vote.

Potts, Bray, Lorraine
Co-star In Pep Meet
'       Over $175 was added to the muscular dystrophy fund
from the quarters clinking in at the door of the Armouries
at noon yesterday. <»—
Barney Potts said that it was
WITH   THAT   ATTIRE,   and
what goes in it, who would
need a licorice stick? Norma
Robertson apparently thinks
she does, and thinks moreover, that she has to play it,
which she did with her usual
talent at Thursday's Pep Meet.
"the largest crowd of kids I have
ever seen at a Pep Meet here
at UBC." The estimated attendance was 1050.
An unexpected show stealer
was Students' Council president
Ron Bray, with an impromtu
rendition of Love and Marriage,
duet style with Lorraine McAl-
ister. The "sophisticated senior
married man" didn't have a
voice, "but he's sure cute!" said
Lorraine.
Said Bray, as Lorraine bared
an enticing shoulder, "I'm not
sophisticated."
Elected as King of the Mardi
Gras, after the antics of all
candidates, was Beta Theta Pi
candidate,   Maurice   Gibbons,
Speaking of shapes, the Mardi
Gras queen candidates with all'
their stellar qualities were presented to the appreciative eye
of the student public yesterday
for th first time. One of the
nine will be crowned by His

queen will take place on the two
nights of the ball,
Dutch treat admission is $3
per person with all proceeds
going to the muscular dystrophy
fund.
Maurice Gibbons
Copps King Crown
Supporting all the frivolity of Mardi Gras is the serious
structure of a "good cause" . . . the muscular dystrophy research fund. The Betas spiked their milk with a touch of this
seriousness and came ou„ on top in yesterday's voting for
Mardi Gras King. <&	
With a large majority of the   seethni«  students ^ around  him,
votes,   Maurice   Gibbons   took   and said-  "Hell°"
over the enviable position, rising      Then   Magi   showed   life-size
from Monarch of the milk machine to monarch of the Mardi
Gras.
Maurice Gibbons, Ubyssey's
Magi, arrived magnificently in
the Armouries atop a milk can
atop a milk wagon. He stepped
onto the stage and said, "Hei ■»,"
had a swig of milk from his
pocket flask, and said hello
again.   He   then   surveyed   the
cartoons of his fashion decrees
for '56.
The final one was a coffin.
Gibbons pointed out that many
people "wear" this because of
muscular dystrophy, ending his
skit with a serious plea for student support in the fight against
this'dread disease. All proceeds
from Mardi Gras go to the muscular dystrophy research fund.
How to get better marks .. •
According Is many well-known, educators, there's
a legitimate way to improve your marks. They contend
that typewritten notes and essays '.ead to better
standing. Thoughts are expressed more clearly-*
spelling improves.
And speed? Faat Longhand writing is about 30
words a minute. In no time tt all you can do far
better on a Royal Portable.
Typed notes mean less squinting and guessing si
•xam time too!
Just one caution—when choosing a portable typewriter, look for a Royal. The rugged Royal will last a
lifetime. Small wonder it's ths world's favorite.
See the Royal Portable at Dealer's and Department
Stores. Budget terms arranged.

The new returning officer

rules upon eligibility of candidates.
"This play has no direct connection with the Shaw Festival
at the University," said Dr.
Steinberg, chairman of the festival here.
"St. Joan has usually been
regarded as a history play.
"George Bernard Shaw gives it
contemporary significant* with
his central theme—the destruction of a genius by the society
which cannot foresee the inevitability of chance," said Dr. Steinberg.
He emphasized that "St. Joan"
is a popular production, whereas
the chance to see "Back to
Methuselah" may never occur
again  in  our  lifetime,
"The Festival at the University is making people more
Shaw-conscious," said Dr. Steinberg. " 'St. Joan' is profitting
from this publicity."
He stated that "St. Joan"
might detract from some of the
Shaw-events  at   the  university.
Tickets for "St. Joan" may be
purchased at Kelly's, Seymour

$1.75 to $4.60. Curtain time is

Trio Plays Music For
'Back To Methuselah"
Among the many theatrical thrills that "Back to Methuselah" has to offer will be the music of a trio of accomplished
musicians.
The trio, Miss Brytta Balla, Wade Radzickowski and Don
McLaren, will play 17th and 18th century recorder music during the last act of the play.     ? " —

Bernard (so called after
George Bernard Shaw) had
experienced a phenomenal
rise to success. When he sauntered into the scenery shop
about three weeks ago, he was
immediately employed as mascot by Production Manager
Norman Young.
POTTERED AROUND
Perched on the shoulder of
Norman Young, Bernard supervised all work. By poking
about his rat-like nose he personally inspected all paint-
pots.
In return for this exacting
labor, Bernard received free
board and room in the scenery shop.
Conflict arose between the
costume ladies, who occupy
an office on the upper floor,
and the scenery men.
Said Dorothy Somerset:
"Bernard got in our way. He
kept running up our legs, tug*

So, Bernard was thrown
out. Nothing has been seen of
him since.

Steinberg   Planned
Shaw  Centennial
"Being personally interested in Shaw, I felt something
appropriate should be undertaken to honor the man who
is probably the most significant writer of our century, in
his anniversary year," Dr. M.
W. Steinberg, chairman of the
Festival committee said.
Dr. Steinberg took his idea
to Miss Dorothy Somerset,
UBC Dramatics Director, who
enthusiastically endorsed the
plan and agreed to attempt
direction of one of the most
difficult plays to stage in the
English language.
PLANS  ROLL
And so plans began rolling
in March or April of last year
for the week-long Shaw Festival.
A committee formed to plan
and organize events joined
hands with the UBC Fine Arts
Committee, under B.C. Binning, which supplied most of
the funds for the festival.
The monstrous task of publicity was handed to Miss
Myra Benson, well-known in
Vancouver theatre, who was
assisted by Mrs. Shelah Lindsay and Janice Bcairsto of the
Players Club.
JOIN FORCES
Fifteen campus organizations and university departments joined forces to organize all phases of the -festival.
Dean O. C. Andrew, Dr. R.
Danielr, S. E. Read and Craig
MiBer of the English Department, were-called upon to act
on the -central cemmrttee, as
were Dr. John Friesen, head
of the Extension Department
and Norman Barton, director
of visual education. Student
representatives included Gerry Hodge of the Special
Events Committee, John May-
nard, president of the Players
Club and Ron Bray, president
of the AMS.
Members of Phrateres offered to serve refreshments
during the intermission of the
play. Assistance also came
from the University Women's
Club, Alma Mater Society,
Humanities Association, University Extension Department, Alumni Association,
Mamooks, Ubyssey, University Film Society, University
Workshop Productions, Department of English and of
course the campus Players
Club.
FRANTIC
While the wheels were
grinding in preparation for
the festival another group of
people were working frantically behind the scenes of the
premier performance in Canada of "Back To Methuselah."
The busiest of these no doubt
is Dorothy Somerset, in
charge of the entire performance.
Close to 60 members of the
Players Club are or have been
working on the play, president John Maynard said. A
back stage crew of 25, one of
the largest ever seen on campus, are working on lights,
scenery, costumes and makeup.
Many top names in Vancouver theatre and television
are associated with the production. Well known actor
and technician, Norman
Young, former president of
the Players Club, is acting as
production manager.
PROJECTED SCENERY
Projected scenery, being
used for the first time in Vancouver for the entire play, is
under CBC television set designer Cliff Robinson. In
charge of lighting are former
Players Club members Tom
Lee and Pat Larsen, assisted
by Arthur Johnson of the
Players Club.
The all-important task of
stage manager for the four-
hour production is being
handled by John VanBucken-
hout of the Players Club, assisted by property mistress
Ann Stewart.
Sound  technician  is   Nigel
Turner. •
COSTUMES
Another gigantic undertaking, that of costuming, is under Mrs. Jessie Richardson,
assisted by Gay Newitt of the
Players Club, with makeup
under the supervision of Sidney Risk, assisted by Richard
Irwin.
"Although the idea of the
festival originated with one
or two persons," Dr. Steinberg stated, "It is an all-out
campus effort that is a credit
to the university and to the
city of Vancouver."
Back-Stage Toils
For Methuselah
By SHIRLEY KING
The Player's Club has the sympathies of Shaw himself,
in undertaking the expensive mammoth production of
"Back to Methuselah."
Shaw didn't intend it to be a money-making play.
An Englishman who went to Shaw for advice on producing
the play, received this cryptic remark: "Is your family
provided for?"
The play is composed of seven scenes which occur
chronologically from the time of Adam and Eve to 3,000
A.D. The major difficulty was making scenery which would
represent the various settings, according to Dorothy Somerset, co-ordinating director for "Back to Methuselah."
"To meet this unique scenery problem, we are using
projected scenery," said Miss Somerset. "This system is
comparatvely novel in Canada."
To do this, the Player's Club engaged lighting experts,
Tom Lea and Pat Larsen, along with artist Cliff Robinson.
Working in harmony with designing of scenery were
the costume-makers, under the direction of Mrs. Jessie
Richardson. Volunteer-workers have been stitching and
fitting for over a month to make over 40 different costumes.
Miss Somerset said the play calls for a number of peculiar properties. One of these is an egg from which a
full-grown girl must emerge. The egg is cracked open with
a huge saw.
Another property needed is a "very beautiful" snake
with a 36-foot tail. "We also had to collect exact sizes of
Victorian furniture," she said.
Miss Somerset said that rehearsing this month has
been particularly intensive. A set-back occurred when
work was postponed for a month because of exams and
holidays, she said.

UBC Architects On
'Almanac' Tuesday
Sixty-three people were asked the following question:
"What do you think of the Architecture display?" Sixty-one
of the people answered, "1 don't know."
One unidentifiable individual*'
who • was wandering about said,
"There should be more of that
stuff around here. It's nice to
look at during noon hour. I
don't understand it, but it is nice
to look at."
Ullysses B. Campusman, Engineering 7, said, "This exhibit
is really unique in any university
of Canada. The whole thing is
designed and executed by the
students of the School of Architecture. Every person on this
campus who is interested in this

7he Tk Sar
Today, everybody's talking
about Juvenile delinquents.
Dick Beddoes wants them
flayed alive; Jack Scott wants ••
them chopped up into little
pieces and fed to whales; Erwin
Swangard wants them rendered
tor tallow; Harold Weir thinks
they should be forced to learn
to play cricket; and Miss Lydia
Arsons doesn't care what hap*
pens to them, as long as Vancouver's water supply isn't
fluoridated.
All these are sensible solutions, but none strikes at the
heart ot the problem. The
trouble with these young hoodlums is that they don't wear
ties. Next time a gang of hoodlums Invade your party, slashes
the curtains, attacks the maid,
knocks your mother's teeth out,
kill* the baby, kills the dog and
■teals ihe liquor, take a good
look at them.
Not a man Jack of them will
have a tie on. Grubby T-shirts,
maybe, or turtle-neck sweaters,
or one of those V-neck sweaters
with nothing on underneath
perhaps; maybe even a snood
or two in the bunch—but nary
a tie.
Now, it's a well-known fact
that every growing bey has hostile, anti-social tendencies. Dr.
Nordstrool, in his penetrating
study, "Why Johnny Can't
Breed" has demonstrated that
every boy wants to throw billiard balls at policemen and
stuff chalk down his teacher's
throat. Many do.
But exhaustive research revealed that not one of the cases
exhibiting brutal, murderous
tendencies was a habitual tie
wearer. The reason, of course,
is that when a boy puts on a
tie, he realises that he has become a part of society, instead
of one standing outside it.
For instance, can you imagine
a fellow wearing one of the Tie
Bar's Tavia Ties (they're hand-
loomed by unemployed policemen in California) smashing
your Ming vase, or kicking the
rungs out of your antique
chairs?
How could a young man pour
ink on your rug or slash the
top on your convertible, when
one of these slim, tweed-flecked
ties was blending so wtnningly
with his suit or sports jacket?
(The Tie Bar, 712 West Pender,
is the first place in town to
carry them.)
The answer of course, is that
he couldn't! A Tavia Tie makes
a gentleman of anybody. If the
City Fathers would just wake
up and spend our tax dollars on
ties, George Archer could go
back to seising liquor from the
Eskimos, and the Juvenile delinquency problem would be
solved. THE UBYSSEY

UBC Library Third
Largest In Canada
"This university's 304,000 volume library is the third largest of its kind in Canada," UBC librarian Neal Harlow announced today in his annual report.
<!> .	
Within the past Tew years the
library has, by means of special
grants, built up some of the
finest subject collections in Canada, notably in medicine, law,
forestry, Slavonic studies and
French - Cartadiana. Promising
developments have also been j
made in anthropology, Asiatic j
studies and fisheries.
Canada's current boom in finance, trade and manufacture
has advanced at a record rate.
"But the boom is not yet penetrated this far into the national
core," said Mr. Harlow. "Funds
to develop library collections
are limited, so that meager libraries are being meagerly supported."
In spite of these limitations
a total of $129,664.58 was spent
during the fiscal year 1954-55.
The3e funds were used to provide 20,368 new volumes as well
as increased amounts of microprint, microcards, microfilm,
sizable additions in Chinese, Japanese and Slavonic literature
plus numerous government publications. A total of 258,301
books were loaned during the
past year.
The original library building
of 1925, greatly extended in
1948 to house snow'balling numbers of books.
Students and staff are once
•gain becoming crowded. This
is only a beginning and as en-
I rollment increases and additional
services are provided, greatly
increased funds will be needed
to house this essential national
resource.

Dr. S. M. Freidman spoke on
"My Current Reading List" in
the Sedgewick room Thursday.
In thirty-five minutes Dr.
Freidman commented on about
a dozen superior books that he
had recently read.
He stated that between The
New Yorker and Atlantic few
books worth reading are not reviewed, though he found that
he had to be "more selective".
He continued to say "tell me
what a man reads and I can
write a biography about him."
Commenting on "Hiroshima
Diary", a Japanese Doctor's
work translated to English, he
said "It shocks me, what man
can do to man."
He said of "The Voices of
Silence" by Andre Malroux
"This is a complete university
course on Art by itself. One
does not have to know anything
about art to start with but when
the book is read a new knowledge ia gained."

Go To Bed But
Don't Get Married
ROSEMARY  KENT-BARBER
Today, Friday the 13th is a
traditionally J i n x e d day.
About the safest thing would
have been to have stayed ln
bed all day but since by the
time you read this it will already be too late a list of
things not to do is herewith
provided.
Don't be born, get married
or take a new job today.
Don't cut your nails or visit
a sick friend. If you've already turned your mattress
this morning you won't sleep
tonight. Don't go out to sea
until midnight and don't go
at all if this is your 13th trip.
The only sailor who ever
tried to break this last superstition was a Mr. Isaac Harvey
of Wilmington, Deleware who
named his brig the Friday,
fitted her out on a Friday and
put to sea on a Friday. The
brig was lost in a gale a week
later, on a Friday.
Salt is a very unlucky ingredient today. About its only
use and one co-eds might be
interested in is the traditional
thrice throwing of a handful
into the fire with the muttering of the following rhyme
in an undertone:
"It is not this salt I wish to
burn,
It is my lover's heart to burn.
That he may neither rest nor
happy be,
Until he comes and speaks to
me."
Europeans tend to be even
more  superstitious  about   13
and  Friday.  Statistics  taken
show only 2 percent of Friday
marriages taking place in
England's midlands while
Paris, France, has not only
no house numbers containing
13 but people called "fourteenths" who will come at the
last minute to avoid sitting
13 at table.
Materialistic New York,
however, has a Thirteen Club
formed of 13 members meeting for dinner on the 13th of
each month at exactly 7:13
p.m. and so far reports nothing has happened.
And at UBC? A brief sur-
vey conducted among the intellectual crop indicates that
90 percent (or nine people)
are not superstitious while 10
percent (a certain sports writer) are or is. It's entirely up
to you but I still think you
should have stayed in bed.

pits the unbeaten Birds against
Royal Oaks at Central Park at
2 p.m. This game was re-scheduled for this week along with
all other games cancelled in the
First Division Mainland League
play.
Their second game finds Birds
meeting South Main Athletics
at Prince Edward Park at 2:00
p.m. Sunday in a First Round
Provincial Cup fixture. The
Birds will have their hands full
trying to get past this team even
though the Athletics are a division lower.

Seeing action for the tirst time
with the Birds this weekend will
be H. Nicholson and Harry Farmer who were transferred up
from the Chiefs. Both of them
will be out to nail down a permanent berth with the Birds.
The UBC Chiefs meet Nor-
quays on the campus at 2 p.m.
Sunday. They will be playing
without cocah Bruce Ashdown
on the sidelines, as he will be
