The Ubyssey
NO. 60
Al Fotheringham
ANOTHER argument against the theory that all
athletes are big, dumb muscle-
bound slobs was put forward
with the announcement that
Bob Piercy, a UBC graduate
engineer, had won one of the
coveted Athlone Scholarships.
The Athlone Scholarships are
englneerlnge equivalents of the
Rhodes Scholarships and provide
two wears pout graduate training
In tbe United Kingdom. Boh, president of the Big Block cluh, is one
ot the finest cross-country runners
ever to represent UBC. Captain of
the track team last year, he has
not entered serious competition
this year.
As a freshman he won both the
Intra-mural mile and . cross-country. He holds an Evergreen Conference record tor tftfts mile and
has been tbe backbone of the UBC
coss-country team for the past
four years.
Pat McGeer U another UBC athlete who comes to mind who proved that he was as proficient with
the books as he was' with a basketball.
Fe«r years ago McOeer was tho
outstanding player oil the Thunderbirds. Tbe speedy port-slder
was one of the tops scorers in the
league the Thunderbirds ln the
Pacific Northwest Conference, the
league the Thunderbirds dominated before moving up to the Evergreen Conferenc. He led the Birds
as they woo the Olympic trials
aad represented Canada along with
Montreal YMHA, at the Olyplcs.
Pat graduated with honors iu
chemistry and won a scholarship to
do post graduate work at Princeton.
lAfflCS to mazlne cartoonists
\ radio spcript writers, many
pedple, at the mention of "athlete"
immediately see the picture ot o
6\ 4" 235 pound football player
with a crewcut, no brains and a
IHO a month athletic scholarship.
The quips and wlsecraks about
college athletes are standard Jokes.
There ls the stury of the athlete
who was a big wheel around the
school. One of his profs, noticing
him swaggering around one day
said, "I haar you're a four-letter
man. Ever think of acquainting
yourself with the other 22?"
Or thd one about Podunk Tech's
ace fullback who couldn't play in
the crucial game unless he passed
his English exams. His coach, know
log perfectly well his llne-bustlng
moron didn't have a chance of
passing, got the English professor'
to compromise and say that If the
numb-skulled fullback could spell
one word right, even one letter, he
would pass him, let him play ln the
gam« and so save the glory of dear
old Podunk Tech.
The word chosen was "Coffee.''
The fullback promptly spelt it out:

No Real Education
To Be Had At UBC
Parliamentary  Forum  Upholds
Prime Minister  Les Armour
Parliamentary Forum members are convinced that UBC is
not providing an education.
They voted 28 to 15 Thursday noon to uphold Prime Minister Les Armour's resolution despite heavy attacks from
Opposition benches. *	
Newman Cub announced Its
new executive for next year
The new officers are:
John Brown, president; Barry Brown, first vice-president;
Donald Farqhuar, second vice-
president; Angus Currie, treasurer; Patricia Conlln, recording seoretary; Elaine Kennedy,
corresponding   secretary.
The campus CCF Club's display in the library on Open
House day came under fire in the provincial legislature Tuesday night.
Final Jazz
The Jazz Society presents Its
final and what should be its bent
jazz concert of the year next Wednesday ln the Auditorium, A group
of Vancouver's best musicians
lio^e been lined up for the occasion.
The group will be led by ac
tenorman Lance Harrison from
th? Palomar Supper Club. Trombone choruses will be taken by
Jack Fulton and Stu Barnet will
bo featured on trumpet.
Rhythm will be supplied by a
section consisting of Dougie Parker, the greatest piano man ln these
parts Tony Macks on drums and
the great Cuddles Johnson on base.
Too Expensive
WITH colorful, though untrue malarkey like this,
entertainers and even some sports*
wrters play up the conception of
the athlete with nothing but space
list ween his ears.
Any students who go out for a
major sport at most universities
have to do so at the expense of
their marks. In the over-emphasis
so prevalent in American sport
studies can't help but be Ignored
The self-help and athletic scholarship system in the US has reached
tn* stage where it is now strictly .
This overdone athletic scholar-
Bhfp system, cases of football
players who don't even attend
classes and the recent basketball
scandal help to give the public the
impression   of   the  dumb   athlete.
It is generally shown that a person who is outstanding in one field;
can be equally outstanding iu other
fields. McOeer and Piercy are our
most obvious examples.
Too often the "beautiful but
dumb" label Is extended to "ath-
lotlc but dumb."
"It   ain't   necessaarily   so.
Mr. Armour tod the meeting;
"We have stiffled all creative
thinking. We are so intent on amss-
ing rearm of facts ln order to
pass exams, and on acquiring the
paper qualifications for earning
a professional living that we have
forgotten that education Involves
a broadening of the understanding
and a taste for truth."
Opposition leaflet Miss Mary
Southin blasted Armour as "ivory-
towerish, escapist and nonsensical.
"I don't know how he will oarn
a  living."
(Mr. Armour Is currently employed as a full-time night reporter on
the Vancouver Province.)
Miss Southin maintained that
the business of state operated universities is to "provide the trained
personnel required by society
which  pays  for  school."
She labelled Armour "almost a
communist and, at best, a woolly
thinker. He seems to have no concept of the needs of our society.''
In his rebuttal, the Prime Minister said: "Miss Southin sounds
more like the views of my pal Joe
Stalin than anything I have heard
In a long time,
"Mr. Stalin believes that universities should teach those thingfi
which his society believes to be
useful and he is in the habhit of
liquidating the dreamers and anyone else who searches for truth
without Inhibitions.
"I rather like to thing that we
are here to search for truth. I do
not object to vocational education.
We must have It—but It ought to
be integrated with the general
aims of the university and it
ought to provide the depth of background which is needed for living
in today's world."

member of that family would receive reciprocal treatment here.
Interested students should contact the ISS Chairman, Uoy Haapala.
H. C. MacDonald (Progressiva-
Conservative. Dewdney) demanded that Education Minister W. T.
Straith should see that "the library is not used as a recruiting
ground for the CCF or anybody
The CCF had its display with
a large placard reading 'Join the
CCF" stationed next to thff main
staircase lu the Library.
Replying to the charge that his
department was responsible for the
placard marring "that beautiful
building worth millions ot Jollars,
Mr. Sraith said that the display
was just part of the competitive
spirit which exists between student  political clubs.
"It's just one of those activities
students engage 4o>" Straith said.
Officials of the CCF Club told
the Ubyssey that the display was
put on at the invitation of the
Open House Committee.
"All campus political clubs were
invited to prepare a display," Uisy
"However, both the Liberal Club
and the Progressive-Conservatives
decided to decline the iuvltatlon."
The prominent location of the
exhibit was assigned to the club
by the Open House Committee, the
CCFers stated.
'Quite a few people commented
on our prominent sign," said Tony
Davis, who was in charge of the
'One gentltMi.an came u*.> to me
nnd complained that the CCF Cluli
had no right to put up a recruiting poster in a university library,"
he said.
The CCF display contained,
apart from the usual pamphlets
and the CCF News, books from
the Socialist Book Shop which are
held in the library reserve book
shelves for use oi students. These
books on socialism were being donated to the library through the
Boag Fund, part of a legacy left
by a B.C. pioneer.

Give It Some Thought

■w-y EE Increases—student or administration—are never par-
JPi... ticularly popular.
The cost of education creeps insiduously upward, and
students are more and more hard-pressed year by year, because their earning power somehow never quite seems to
keep pace.
--- ,But students should give some serious thought to the
troubles of the AMS before they vote on the forthcoming
Unless they agree to the increase, they are going to find
that many of the most important campus activities are serious*
ly curtailed.
Perhaps five dollars is not a staggering amount when you
Consider that the AMS has not had a boost since 1938 but all
the people the AMS has to pay have demanded substantial in- -
Students might also give some consideration, however, to
the possibility that not all our current spending is necessary.
They should ask themselves very carefully what activities are
really worthwhile and what could be dispensed with.
Intercollegiate athletics, for instance, take 30 percent of
our student fees.
Yet most students see only a fraction gt the games and
the number of students who participate ih them can easily
be counted without a slide rule.
Is that 30 percent well-spent?
What would we lose if We forgot about mass athletics
and concentrated on the much more useful and less costly
intra-mural program?
Anything important?
We doubt it.

Every year we hear the same old battle about how much

%%Meij Clapped
Ivory Tower
A Conservative MLA made an indignant little speech in
, /Victoria the other day blasting Education Minister W. T.
Stfaith for permitting the CCF to display a "Join the CCF"
placard in tlte library during Open ftouse. He charged that
the display was defiling "that beautiful building worth many
millions of dollars."
May we remind Mr. MacDonald that Open House was
held to show what university students were doing. One of the
things we tried to prove was the fact that a university need not
necessarily isolate itself in an ivory tower ''worth many millions of dollars."
Are his objections aimed mainly at the offending
words "Join the CCF?" If the last is true we would like to
say We have yet to see a political party display which does
not say either "Vote" or "join."

UBC established a graduate
ties In the field of planning,
course In Community and Regional Planning some two years
The first full time students
enrolled ln the department last
September and are expected
to spend two years at the university to qualify for the graduate diploma in Community
Planning. The background of
these students reflects the
great, variety of aspects to
Community Planning and the
necessity of bringing these
various field of study into relation   with   one   another.
^Planning our cities and
towns and our physical envlro-
ment generally is nothing new.
The  Romans,  the  Greeks  and
Western man throughout history have built cities according
to a plan. What Is, however,
the purpose for whicli we
plan cities and the methods
we use to achieve our new
It is no coincidence that the
course at this university deals
with Community Planning ra-
* ther than Town or City Planning and that the emphasis !n
the curriculum ls on Community, The Romans may have
built their cities to glorify the
Emperor; in the Middle Ages
man built cities for the glorification of God and planned
them to achieve the maximum
of protection against attack.
In the 19th Century Napoleon
dictated a plan for Paris as a
means of controlling revolt
and rebellion  from  within.
In contrast to that we hope
to guide the development of
our cities and towns for the
good of man and the benefit
of the community as a whole.
This is the basic concept of
the course at this university,
which is open to all students
from the social and physical
sciences and attempts to relate their backgrounds to the
professional practice of Community Planning.
This graduate course will
admit only a limited number of
students so as to ensure a maximum of personal attention by
the staff and to allow a high
degree of tailor-made curriculum for each student.
A student coming to this
course with a B.A, ln the social sciences such as Economls
or Solology would be expected to take additional ourses
In Geography, Engineering and
possljipy Design, whereas a
training in the lihysical sciences would take courses In Economics, Pupl|cl Administration and Sociology to round
out his general knowledge of
man and his problems.
The core of the graduate
course is the workshop in Community Planning, In Which all
students participate, usually as
n member of a team. In this
workshop the students attempt
to solve concrete plaining
problems, which provide the
opportunity of applying the
various skills they are acquiring in the other courses.
During the current teem the
students have been given the
cpportunlty of making a survey and proposing a -le elop-
ment plan for one of the Fraser Valley municipalities. The
Municipality of Maple Ridge
has invited the four graduate)
students and the staff to act
us planning consultants on its
future development and asked
their advice on the growth and
expansion of the town of
Haney. This allows the qtu
dents to learn by doing in a
very realistic setting and t;
make a contribution to the
municipalities in close proximity to the metropolitan area nf
The students will have 3
months for the project and
have started the field survey of
conditions In Haney; they expect to visit the town on a
three or four day field trip
next week for further intensive study.
This project demonstrates
one of the Immediate values of
this new course at UBC, both
as a method of training widely
needed planning personnel as
well as rendering a real service to various parts of the
The graduate course in Community Planning was made
possible through a generous
grant of the Federal Government who has also offered a
number of graduate fellowships for study and research
in this field.
So It may come to pass that
those who know, do; those
who don't teach; those w^o
can't teach, PLAN, because
they know, and thereby close
the circle.

A small but conspicuously

time to time, proclaim that it
is ©ot, for knowledge that they

most university students probably well agree that they
jhould gain much both from
their formal and from their
formal university activities. It
is about making the best of
their informal education opportunities at the University that
I propose to of fer a few of my
own ideas.
The University offers Informal
edncationftl opportunities lnthree
distinct, but overlapping spheres,
social athletic and cultural-educational. In a general way the
average student soon becomes
aware of the social opportunities
qpqn to ,hi» or to ber and with
reasonable luck can take advantage of these opportunities.    ,

make a point of joining in at least

two thrpe-hpur stretches a week
is not enough exercise. Actually
this should be more than enough
One ot my distinguished colleagues stated the other day that

their onetime too athletically in-

Students know only too well
what they would say about a professor who tried to give a course
for which admittedly there would
never be any use whatever fttet
graduation. It is also wise to
choose a game which is played ln
all parts of the world.
I have played cricket in Qeneva
where my team mateB, whom I had
never seen before, represented
seven countries and our captain
was a Dane; rugby in California
with a team of Americans against
a Canadian naVal ship, run in Berlin with an Oxford-Cambridge
team against crack Gerpmn clubs,
and Field Hockey for an Indian
team which one day found itself
a man short. Could anybody ask
for more from their sport?

"That's all" Joy said. Immediately everyone started talking and
walked towards the door up 16 the.
"Let's all go aown to De*

Suddenly no one seemed tired
anymore and everyone was thankful that rehearsel had ended so
eaerly tonight.
Joy Coghill was telling her
"Much Ado About Nothing" cast
how good they could be if they
would put, just a little more effort
into the next rehearsals.
"You're going to be tired," she
was addressing the people in the
crowd scenes, "you're going to be
awfully tired, but you've got to
keep that spirit ot comedy and
good-naturedness every second
you're on that stage."
Joanne Walker (Beatrice), curled up on a front row seat, sighed
and wondered if she would be this
tired tomorrow night, Bob Woodward (Benedict) sitting by himself
in the third row, took a long nervous drag on his cigarette.
Joy scratched a note off hqr
book and said, "And you've got
to remember to listen to what the
other people on stage are saying.
Fifty per cent of acting ls listening. That's the only -way we can
create human beings on the stage."
I puffed on my pipe, and wondered how many hours tfiese young
actors had practised the numerous
scenes and how many hours tomorrow night and to the next night
and the next . . .

Catching the spirit of other columnists on the "Ubyssey"
we will give the real dope about how the cast of "Much j Ado

The explanation of this statement ls very simple. The stovepipes, will be used as pillars in the
sets but will not be holding up
anything of great weight.
The long Johns, ln colors varying from their normal white nnd
red to brilliant green, will serve as
tights for males ln tbe cast.

Johns, Albert Simpson, who plays
the watch, nearly lost his trous-m

slipped. The two actors who were
in the process of carrying him off
the stage speeded their exit De-
fore any of the actresses had time
to blush. But not before one budding Shakespearian actor shouted,
"Odds  Bodkins."

UBC Gym Club will stage its
first, event of the year on Saturday
night in the women's gym when
they meet Vancouver Pro Rec and
Washington State In a pro Olympic contest.
The Vancouver club features

year at Kitsilano High School and
who won a dominion championship

Braves vs. Victoria
For Provincial Title
Today, in the New Gym at 12:30, the UBC Braves are playing the Dickinson & Dunn team from Victoria in the first game
of the Provincial semi-final playoffs.
The Braves qualified to enter the ^^>^>>»>mm>mmmm
Lower Mainland championships, by
defeating the junior Clover Leafs
for the Vancouver title, and then
went on to squeeze by North Van.
CYO to take the Lower Mainland
Title ln a close three game series.
Two members of the Victoria
team, Bill Garner and George Wool-
lett, were with the Vic College
team which defeated the Braves
last weekend in the Open House
The D & D team comes over with
a very good record behind them,
but if the UBC students turn out
in force, the Braves will quite likely
play the role of Wellington. It
might be interesting to not** that
the Braves have to put jp a $100
guaraantee for the Island Team's
Transportation, and the 25c admission fee paid at the door ln their
only way of meeting this expense.
Using such players as Val Chrl-
tie, Dennis Grlsdale Chuck Thrasher Stan Lawson and Harold Rowke
ln their starting line up the Braves
appear to be quite strong offensively. However, today will toll
the tale.
The winner of this play off will
go   against   the   upper   mainland
champs,  for the  provincial championship.
Remember: today 12::;0 ln the
