CROWNING LILY DONG Queen of Homecoming is this
year's Great Trekker Aubrey Roberts. Radiant Lily—
candidate for the engineers—won out over six other candidates. Princesses were Danica d'Hondt, Arts, and Kay
Hammerstom, Frosh. —Robertson Photo
Lily Dong Rings
Homecoming Bell
Lily Dong was sitting back, not nervous at all because she
didn't expect anything to happen. Suddenly a crown was placed
on her head and she was announced as Homecoming Queen
for 1955. Then came the nervousness, "all I could do was giggle."
__ t
—      ,.     ^ ^e beginning of the dance,
her boyfriend, Bob Lee, mentioned casually, "Oh, you might
have a chance, Lil." But Lil was
so sure that she didn't have a
chance, that she talked him out
of the idea completely.
So at the coronation, Bob was
just as surprised as Lily, and as
he says, "more excited."
The 21-year-old example of
collegiate pulchritude and personality is a fourth year nursing
It was on her 21st birthday,
October 1.3, that she was chosen,
at the Nurses-Engineers Mixer,
as the EUS candidate for Homecoming Queen.
When asked about the controversial identity of her sponsors—
are they sheep or wolves?—she
side-tracked neatly, "they're a
nice bunch of fellows."
For Lily, the taking of photographs was the most nerve-
wracking episode; thanks to the
enthusiastic support of the engineers, the Pep Meet turned out
to be the most enjoyable.

Huge Brock
Space To Be
At a cost of about ten dollars
per square foot, some two hundred fifty thousand square feet
of brand new offices, club
rooms, and lounges will be divided among AMS clujbs and
faculties in the proposed Brock
Extension building.
"But," Committee Chairman
Don McAUum said, "it may not
be possible to satisfy all clubs'
estimated requirements." He
stressed that space estimates
submitted so far by the various
clubs would not be automatically approved.
At a meeting MMonday, the
student Brock Extension committee discussed with architects
a preliminary list of space requirements.
Half the proposed total space
has already been requested by
clubs. The largest space requirements submitted are dance club,
2100 sq. feet; Mussoc, 1700; and
Jazzsoc,  1500.
The extension, financed by
student funds over the next
seven years, should be contracted by the end of March and may
be completed by next winter.
Some 1800 square feet has
tentatively been assigned to
office space for all religious and
political clubs.
Also under discussion are extended cafeteria facilities, a
large main student lounge, and
recreational space for ping-pong
and billiards.
After several meetings to iron
out space requirements and the
general appearance of building,
architects Sharp and Thompson
will be asked to submit the first
drafts of final blueprints.
Investigators Urge
Dropping Charges
The Undergraduate Societies Committee has refused to
accept the decision of the Investigating Committee to droR
charges which were laid against three students following the
Bellingham Invasion.
The Investigating Committee
was ordered by Student Council
to look into the matter when the
students were arrested following
the Invasion on charges of
drunkeness and obstructing police officers.
After examining the evidence
t h e Investigating Committee
felt that the matter should be
dropped since the students involved had already suffered
The Undergraduate Societies
objected on the grounds that the
offences are too serious to be
ignored and the students' conduct reflected badly on the
They also felt that the Investigating Committee had gone beyond its jurisdiction in dropping
the charge.
The charges will now be taken before Student Court in spite
of the feeling of the Investigating Committee that the evidence
is not sufficient.
Members of the Investigating
Committee are: Chairman Dave
Hamphill, Joan Mclvor, Clive
Hughes, Gordy Flemons, and
Murray McKenzie.

School's Out
We agree with President N. A. M. "MacKenzie that UBC
does not need a school of journalism.
Every year UBC is invaded by hundreds of eager would-be
reporters breathless and starry-eyed after a year in high school
JoutnaJiam class or working on the school paper.
Every year'these students curse tbe administration for
dieting no journalism courses and join the Ubyssey staff for
"iThey find it a goad consolation.
After a few years working for the Ubyssey and for one of
the downtown papers part-time—while managing to attend
some lectures on the side—students enter a career of journalism with a wide background of practical experience.
Even students who have attended journalism schools in
Washington state and Ontario say the course is "easy, fun, but
Newsmen who rose to fame after working for The Ubyssey
include: Pierre JSerton, Hal Straight, Jack Wasserman and
Eric Nicol.
Andrew Comments
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I have been much interested by the discussion which has
gone on in jour pages, and in those of the downtown papers,
regarding the meeting in the auditorium at which Mr. Tim
Buck spoke. I think the discussion may prove useful if we
can concentrate on the issues involved.
I attended the meeting be
cause I was interested and
would like to record the fact
thaB Mr. Buck apparently said
what he intended to say, and
also had time for a question
period. It is wrong and contrary to the fact to say, as was
implied in some accounts, that
he was unable to conclude his
speech. I saw him leave the
Stage and he was not hustled
from it. There was no "riot."
At the outset of tthe speech he
was interrupted, quite naturally I thought, but was not interrupted long enough at any
time to make his remarks disconnected.
I deplored and deplore the
throwing of fruit, but it should
be recorded that Mr. Bucks
comments about people who
had been in Russian concentration camps were of a aomfewhat
provocatve character.
However, the thing I would
Ike to concentrate on is this.
What is the duty of the student
body towards a speaker sponsored by one of their clubs? In
my opinion the duty can be
stated quite simply. First, not
to throw anything or engage in
other forms of violence. Second, not to heckle so continuously that he is unable to put
his point of view connectedly.
Third, to have some representative of the Students Council
present when controversial people are speaking, to support the
chairman of the meeting on a
non-partisan basis. I do not
think, for a moment that the
student body has any obligation
not to interrupt speakers, either
by applause, or by heckling if
they feel that the speaker is
wrong. Expressions of disapproval, as well as of approval,
are I think quite in order in a
political meeting. Expressions
of disapproval should not, however, be childish, boorish, or
so prolonged asHo interrupt the
general flow of discourse. A
few students on the recent occasion were childish, some
were boorish, a very few resorted to throwing objects on
the stage. These reactions
were, however, not quite out
of keeping with the quality of
a good deal df what Mr. Bu&k
said. The vast majority of the
students behaved exactly as I
would hope they would do. I
would like to Offer congratulations to them.
Yours sincerely,
Dean and Deputy
to the President
and now
all this
Sorry, but you boobed last
time you reviled modern art.
You shouldn't have denounced
it as the reckless imagery of

the bad dreams of indigestion?
Well said, but you boobed

Well dressed and successful,
the three pioneers are Rolf
Blakstad, 26, UBC graduate;
Herbert Gilbert, 29, UBC graduate; and Ronald Kelly, 26,
UBC graduate.
Surprised that UBC's getting
into the picture at last? Listen,
you culture vultures.
Only one, Gilbert, has had
formal art school training (in
Vancouver, Chicago, and San
Trancisco). He now lives frugally in a Burrard Inlet houseboat, but he's respectable.
Blakstad and Kelly are not
only respectable, they are a set
designer and a TV producer
employed by CBU.
All three owe their artistic
success to a broad liberal education begun at UBC and extended by travel in Europe.
Their work is more mature
than child art, but less stylized
than dul pre-renaissance quick-
Gilbert's work is completely
abstract, not a nude collection.
Unfortunately, he's unmarried.
Any young co-ed on the campus care to broaden his scope?
Blakstad and Kelly arc less
angular. Both married, their
voluptuous nude stduies and
more rounded forms reflect the
influence of eternal women
University has given these
artists a greater interest in
ideas than in techniques. They
have little use for electric art
school methods, preferring to
adopt an exploring attitude
while dressed in a tailored suit.
They show a lingering touch
of regional influence, but most
of their work is compounded
of universal theories and experiences, even pagan and classic.
You can meet these unusual
alums, and keep up with the
changing times Friday, Nov.
18, when they will discuss their
work at noon in the UBC gallery, under the sponsorship of
curator B. C. Binning and the
Visual Arts Club.

Buck Apology
Editor/ The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I would be extremely grateful if you could forward my
sincere apology to Mr. Tim
Buck, the leader of the "local"
LPP. What happened? On November 1, during the lunch-
hour. I sat in the auditorium
listening to his clever talk, not
whistling, not yelling, not
throwing half-eaten apples nor
rotten oranges at his head, just
curious to know, what he tits
to isy, and how jh* communists operate m this country—
my country m a very lew

the notorious incident when

thrown freely and joyfully by
students, who apparently know
well how to conduct gracefully
a fiolttiedl mooting, I Jolt (being df €1") far safer sitting
and could not say what I actually wanted to say. I would
have asked Mr. T. Buck, ii
he really believes what he says.
And this could have led to an
interesting debate.
I believe I would have had
the opportunity to tell him,
how I classify communists into
four neat groups oi murderers,
thiefs, swindlers and hone3t
but hopelessly ignorant individuals, who simply do not
know what the communism
means—none of them worth
a nickel to this free country.
And I believe I could have told
the students of this university:
'Do not whistle, do not laugh
do rTbt yell and do rfbt throw
rotten eggs at a talking communist! Listen carefully instead. Only then you will be
able to notice how much he
hates you and what he is ready
to do, to get the power he is
seeking. No matter how weak
the communists seem to be today—never, never, never underestimate!" In the Auditorium I could hear my own
laugh—eight years ago at the
university in Prague—and I
am afraid.

SMILING ROD YOUNG joshed students Friday for pelting Tim Buck. Said city barrister Young, speaking for tbe
Civil Liberties Union: "When I went to UBC we threw
dead cats at Tim. This time students only threw apples. I
suppose this is an improvement." In more serious mood he
termed the pelting "stupid."
Rod Young Slams
Labor Exploiters
"Civil rights are superior to property rights," city barrister
Rod Young told students Friday.
Slamming business men for*
making negroes inferior in order
to exploit their labour, former
member of Parliament Young
told the Civil Liberties sponsored
meeting "when property rights
come into conflict with civil
rights, property rights must go."
He said U.S. negroes were
forced in slavery and later—
after emancipation—'held down
by white businessmen in order
to profit ffcom cheap labour.
Young added, however, that
people should show respect for
the private property of others
when civil liberties were not
He called the two crying needs
of people the world over '"kindness and veracity."
"The rights of man," he said,
"include the right to be understood."
Answering a student question
"should France pull out of North
Africa," Young replied: ."In
some colonies yes, in others, no."
"I realize that is not a very
satisfactory answer," he added,
"but then we are not living in
a very satisfactory world."
He explained that some North
African colonies were ready for
self government while others
were not. He also pointed out
"the devastating effect" loss of
colonies would have on the
French economy.
Young concluded his talk by
calling students "stupid" for
pelting Federal Communist leader Tim Buck.
He added: "But then, in my
day we threw dead cats at Tim.
Apparently this year they only
threw apples. I suppose that is
some improvement."
Raven has finally achieved
world-wide fame. It is going
to be quoted everywhere.
Quoted, that is, in a bibliography.
The National Library ln
Ottawa intends to include the
first issue of Raven in its

diana, which is distributed
throughout Canada and

To  Explore
Protestant students who are
not yet decided about their vocation are invited to explore the
possibilities of entering the ministry on the Rockefeller Brothers
Theological Fellowship Program.
Graduating seniors or recent
graduates of Canadian and American Universities are eligible,
and shall be nominated by the
University for the theological
Fellowship grants.
There are no obligations to
continue in the study after expiration of the one-year grant
to the Theological School of the
candidate's choice.
He may prepare for the ministry, or enter another profession. The purpose of the grant
is primarily to aid those who
are uncertain whether or not to
make the ministry their career.
No fixed amount has been determined for the Fellowship
grants, but an adequate amount
will be given according to the
particular needs of the successful candidate. It is expected that
as many as fifty Fellowships
will be awarded for the coming
The fellowship program is not
designed as a general theological preparation, but as a development of the candidate's talents

Journalism Study
Unlikely for UBC
UBC will consider establishing a Journalism School only
if students demand it, President N. A. M. MacKenzie said
200 Students
Leave Books,
Fight Floods
Rallying to a brazen call to
arms, two hundred university
students resisted the pull of their
studies to go to the aid of flood-
stricken residents in the North
Vancouver area Thursday evening.
Minutes after the university
received a call from Civil Defence Headquarters downtown,
University Radio Society sound
trucks converged on both Fort
gnd Acadia camps in an attempt
to round up a hundred volunteers.
Willing students responsible
by turning out two hundred
strong. All available vehicles
from the Buildings and Grounds
Department were called out to
provide transportation. By 5.30,
125 students were on their way
to the flood scene.
When they arrived in North
Van, they were directed by
"Works Mnister P. A. Gaglardi to
the 2000 block Capllano Road
where they proceeded to get
utterly drenched. Undaunted by
the elements, the volunteers dug
in with spirits high, rousing
themselves with frequent UBC
By 9.30, such a large crowd
of people gathered that they
found themselves unable to be
of any further assistance. They
immediately asked for instructions but things were in such a
disorganized state that most of
them packed up and returned to
the campus, although they were
ell willing to remain to do whatever they could.
Twenty hardy souls stayed at
Lions Gate Park until 10.15, but
they, too, were forced to return
home when they found themselves with nothing to do.
The only casualty of the evening was Ross Michealson, who
Was hit by a falling tree. His
injuries were not serious, however.
On the lighter side, one of the
trucks was stopped at the Lions
Gate Bridge toll booth and
asked to pay a toll of approximately $20. A call to Civil Defence Headquarters soon cleared
up the matter and the truck proceeded on its way.
President MacKenzie was
commenting on remarks made
by Leslie Barber, retiring president of B.C. Canadian Weekly
Newspaper Association.
Need for more journalists was
emphasized by Barber in a Chilr
liwack speech Friday. He urged
a journalism school be set up in
Western Canada.
Commented President MacKenzie:
"It is not a esse of what is
good for western Canada. We
feel that there is a greater need
for other departments at UBC
before journalism. However, if
journalists ask us to consider
such a school we will definitely
do so."
Dr. MacKenzie felt that the
best education for a journalist is
a sound training in English, and
as much understanding as is possible of our history, society and
philosophy. Thus a course in
journalism would have to be at
the Graduate studies level.
"A flare for journalism is a
necessity for prospective newspapermen," he went on to say.
"A person could easily have all
the understanding and knowledge required, but still lack the
touch of a good journalist."
If such a school were established, it will follow UBC's
practise of having a number of
full-time trained professors supplemented by practitioners.
Film Society spakeman announced that "The Maggie"

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? Barry Graham, (right) a downtown Chartered Accountant
student, is in the process of rescuing his speedboat from Empire Pool. The boat, which
was stored on a trailer near Fort Camp, was apparently placed in the pool Halloween
night. UBC students Baz French, (left) and Pets Hume (center) went for a spin in the
pool before dragging the 500 pound boat back home.

"It is always the woman who pays."
This is the policy of two married students who go to university while their wives work . . . and pay the bills.
Both Laurie Brahan, who has$	
been married five years, and
Boss Sutherland, who has been
married three months, agree on
this procedure. Strangely enough, their wives agree too.
Brahan's wife works for B.C.
Telephone Company. They have
a three-room apartment in West
Vancouver, drive a car, and own
a brand-new television set.
Married in 1930, they had a
short, short honeymoon which
lasted ten days. Immediately after, Brahan went to Korea
where he saw active fighting.
"We live from day to day,
with the help of a DVA allowance," said Brahan. "Cooperation is the gist of our success.
We get up at the same time; I

Acadia Camp for the Kerrisdale Arena every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. with

Skating and

and Get in
The Swing
drive her to work and then drive
myself to classes."
"Whoever gets home first
makes dinner," he said. "We
have a roast every Sunday;
sometimes we have steaks,
chops. We have everything!"
The Sutherland*, who had experienced married bliss for three
months, have also found that
things work fine when the woman pays. They own their own
house and drive their own car.
Sutherland's wife, a college
graduate, works as a lab technician.
This is the way Sutherland,
describes a typical evening: "I
drive her home. I make supper.
She does the dishes. I study.
She works—makes furniture,
does the washing, and goes to
bed early. I stay up most of the
night studying."
Sutherland and Brahan are
both in second year Arts. They
intend to enter Law next year.
They have no doubts about
the wisdom of their decision to
get married. "We wouldn't hesitate if we had to do it all over
"It takes time and money.
Some men feel there is a loss
of pride involved when the woman pays the way," they said.
They feel they are working
towards a common goal. Sutherland says, "I'm studying tor the
benefit of myself and my wife."

Spaceships, Mountains, Giant
Boots Delight Downtowners
The practice of mixing ice
with one's drinks is not in particular attributed to any phase
of our social history, but is believed to have started sometime
during the renaissance when
men discovered that a drink
spilt down the neck of a woman
resulted in much more excitement when half filled with ice.
"I last saV him on a spaceship," is a remark which would
have seemed out of this world
on any other day but last Saturday.
But then, it fitted in as UBC
clubs and organizations sponsored spaceships, giant football
boots, campus scenes, and tops
of mountains on over forty amusing, startling and downright
beautiful floats in the annual
Homecoming Parade.
Passersby roared with laughter as the Faculty of Nursing
girls tenderly bandaged the leg
of a supposedly injured 'Bird
player, and while ducked as
Publication Board marksmen
aimed rolled up Ubysseys at
various spectators.
Dance Club, while not among
the six winning entres, produced
one of the most colorful floats,
witli a team of students demonstrating the latest square dances
to the music provided by a loud
VOC showed a mountaineering
scene with the entire float littered with a tent and climbing
equipment. Frosh Undergraduate Society, on the other hand,
turned up with masses of balloons in varsity colors and its
members dressed as junior high
school kids.
Apart from the floats, there
were seven cars mat evoked the
most wolf whistles from the
crowds as the Faculty Queens
paraded along. UBC's shapely
Drum Majorettes also received
their fair share of appreciative
catcalls as they appeared to lead
the Parade.
Judges for the Parade were
Les Cummings of the Vancouver
Province, Jack Webster of
CJOR's "City Mike" and Alder-
woman Anna Sprott. TTiey selected six floats, from four fraternities and sororities and two
The fraternities and sororities
were Alpha Delta Phi, Gamma
Phi Beta,   Lambdn Chi   Alpha,
Psi Upsilon, Kappa's, Zete's and
Fijis-Betas. The two Faculties
were that of Nursing and Pharmacy.
Following the first half of the
football game, these floats were
paraded around the Stadium for
the judges final decision. Win*
ner was Pharmacy's beautiful
floral float showing a giant prescription and a huge Rx. Second
and third, in this order were:
Alpha Delta Phi and Alpha
Gamma Delta's "Life at UBC is
trying" and Gamma Phi Beta,
Lamba Chi Alpha and Psi Upsilon "Westward Ho." This last
showed Toronto covered with
snow while Vancouver was enjoying beautiful sunny weather
and was clearly the best place to
hold the Grey Cup Football
Runners up were Kappa's and
Zete's "Martian Exchange Students of 2056", Fiji's Phi Delts'
and Beta's enormous football
boot and ball and the Nurses'
representation of a wounded

to make contact with police and ,
other officials directing operations and the calls had to be
relayed through the UBC sta»
tion, where several Hamsoa

These members gave their services voluntarily,
University Radio Society also
got into the act by setting up a
direct line between the Hamsoc

up with one win and five losses
in Evergreen Conference football play.
Frank Gnup's Thunderbirds

passing attack spelt out the defeat.
