at Queen's University and one of
the foremost Canadian historians
on this continent.
The fact that "Canadians have
been sheltered "children tends to

our history. We have not had too

"Canadians have to pay some-j

Over 100 students filled,the room
to heur Dr. Ho discuss the ris of
Communism fn China and Its influence on the social and economic society in that land.
PARTY  UNIQUE
"The Chinese Communist Party
is unique ln the history of revolutionary parties," he said. "It Is
the only revolutionary party that
has. had a territorial basis for its
operations and a private, loyal
army to carry out Its policies.
These two factors mainly account
for the rise of the Communist
Party In China." added Dr. Ho.
Without the support of the peasants, who supplied the territorial
basis, the party could never havo
grown .«o successfully.
"The Chinese Communist Party
Js fundamentally a party of agrarian reformers and as such wus often
at variance with the Kremlin. But
after tho successful completion of
the Long March, begun In 1!>34, tho
Kremlin admitted its mistake and
sanctioned the policy followed by

LETTERS TO EDITOR
Homecoming Success?
Homecoming weekend is over. That it was
A partial success despite the bungling of the
Homecoming Committe? is a gratifying
thought.
Quite apart from the lack of publicity coordination in tbe weeks and days preceding
Homecoming, and the fiasco of USC's intervention in tfo« choice ol Queen candidates,
the Committee also failed in organizing its
part of the downtown parade.
The individual floats were a great success,
but who Among the bystanders knew what the

vertibles were supposed to represent. There
was not a single sign on die cars carrying the
Queen candidates, nor was the car carrying
throe beblazered student councillors marked
in any way.
Furthermore, the very fact that the Queen
candidates had to be crowded together shows
up quite plainly the lack of initiative on the
part of the Committee.
Next time we venture downtown in a mass
publicity parade, let us make sure it is not
just a "let's go, boys" affair.
Your 'news reports' on the CBC are so
riddled with half-truths, inaccuracies and'
logical fallacies that one letter can comment
on a few only.
By unscrupulous organization of your material' you apparently tried to mislead your
readers. For example, on the front page of
the Oct. 29 issue, you say. "An on-the-spot
survey of Canadian television shows: 1. The
federal government is accused of wanting to
e^ect a copper curtain . . . to deflect U.S.
TV signals." Not until the next day did you
tell us who made the 'accusation*—and let
us find out that it was not an accusation at
disinterested observer said "I know what
all. You report: J. E. Cooke (anything but a
Or. McCann would like to do . . , and-that
is to erect a copper barrier ... to deflect TV
signals from the U.S." Unscrupulous organization, deliberate misquoting or unforgivable
stupidity? If the last, surely Webster should
be fired?
Your editorial of Oct. 30 finishes with the
completely, illogical conclusion that "it would
invoke no extension of tl i same principle if
the government established its own publishing house with authority over all other publishing houses and the right to determine
what books Canadians shall read." The circumstances qf radio and publishing are different; by international agreement we are
allowed a few wavelengths only; we can publish as many books as we like.
• Under a heading CBC Shines in Drama you
print a 46-line paragraph:* \xk lines on the
topic and 44 xk on miscellaneous and irrelevant material. Why not devote the same
amount of space to the excellencies of the

We have free elections.
The worst aspect of your smear cnfnpnlfn,
however, is your failure to publish a report
of the speech by Mr. Seldes, a noted authority
on U.S. radio and television, to the National
Radio Awards dinner. In view of the space
you devoted to the CJ3C this week, surely
you could have published his speech? He
said, among other things and as closely as I
can remember: "American radio does not
satisfy many people ... In American TV
there is practically no sustained effort to meet
the requirements of any minority group, let
us say of anything less than 37 per cent of Use
public. Canada has a greater chance of satisfying the public under its system. It is in
those statements that we find the real sin
of commercial radio: it is so constituted that
it cannot cater to minority groups—and most
people belong to a minority group in one of
their interests, be it stamp-collecting, chamber music, the U.N., ballet, or compost heaps.
Furthermore, let's hear no more of this
nonsense about taxpayers' money being used
to set up CBC TV. Where does commercial
radio get its money?—From us, to the tune
of $45 (roughly) per head per year. And the
minority groups who get no service from
commercial radio still have to support it*
whenever they buy an advertised product.
In other words, the CBC is more democratic
in its financing as well as in its programing.
You might take not of Chief Justice Rin-
i'ret's column on Friday: "There is no necessity for the Vancouver Sun to be published:
and if it cannot do it without being inaccurate-
it should cease publication." (I didn't notice
that comment in the Sun, by the way).

Kditor, The llbyssey,
Dear fifir:
1 beg leave to comment upon
an article called "The Fishy
Eye" which appeared ia last
Thursday's Ubysaey. 8ei*,om
have I scm) as witty as4 aatnto
.an expression of ae aatve a position.
Limitations ot space tone* me
to confine my reoarks to on*
small facet of thbt excellently
written article—that whioh ridicules the argument from "Opinion
under stress." The aathir describes ttils phenomenon as fellows : " 'Since thane ave no
at heists In foxholes,' atheism Is
false. In other words, 'wishing
will make It so'."
At one time I considered as
valid such a dismissal of a common argument of religious apologetic; but no longer so. Christianity is a faith Intended for
persons ''under stress"—and we
are all in that position, If only
we knew It. The non-atheist in
the foxhole symbolizes each of
us.
He Is alone, and powerless In
the face of an-array of Impersonal
force which threatens to snuff
out his life at any Instant. What,
at such a moment, Is the meaning
and purpose of his existence,
Where are the ideals for which
he has yearned, the goals for
which he has striven, the causes
for which he has fought? They
cannot sustain him. The prospect that chills him is not the
mere ending of his life, but the
threat of Its ultimate meaning-
lessness.
This same threat hangs overall or .its. In comfortable, 'normal' circumstances we are able
to "keep busy' and hide It from
ourselves; but when sudden
death Is obviously Imminent, we
cannot escape It. In such a time
of "stress" the Individual sees
the reality ot his plight and turns
to the only possible source of
meaning—to God.
Perhaps this Is only to grasp
at a straw. Pet-haps there Is no
Individual life. Each must decide
this for himself. But let us not
delude ourselves: such value and
meaning is impossible apart from
worship of God.
Let me imagine myself a
dweller in the godless world of
tho materialist. How shall I live?
Certainly I shall not prattle about
-freedom', n.s does tho author of
"The Fishy Eye." What meaning can it have? The only rele-
unit freedom ls my freedom—to
promote the Interests of myself
to the maximum possible degree
To the end ot my self-aggrandizement I dedicate all the energy,
skill and talent I can muster. I
am dissuaded by no soft nnd
soupy sentimentality, no Idealistic patter about love, friendship, service to humanity, or
truth. There is only one valid
object of love—myself. A friend
Is a person to he us#d. The function ot faunwuUy is to serve me,
to as gr«at an extent .as 1 have
the wit and power to persuade it.
Truth is whatever belief ie to my
advantage and a sufficient number of gullible dupes can be persuaded to swallow. I am the
ultimate, the only source of
meaning for my life.
You may hate me for this. But
you cannot say I am wrong. In
a godless world, right and wrong
have no meaning, except as
terms of commendation for ones
allies and abuse for ones enemies,
respectively.
Such is tbe world with which
we are faced If the religious man
In ihe foxhole Is wrong. You may
buy lt If you choose; this writer
is unable to do so. The Implications of materialism make him
look upon It with a most fishy
eye.

SOCIAL CREDIT
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
With reference to the letter of
Social Creditor A. Roy Trimble,
1 would entirely concur with his
statements on Mr. Stelnson and
Lyon and the moral poverty of
the Liberal party which they
represent.
Mr. Trimble, however, states
that the l»mie on June 14 was
good government or bad government, it was not as simple as
that. True, any party which can
remove the legacy of patronage
and maladministration will do
British Columbia a good turn.
Hut the Issues go deeper than
that.
A speech by James Gardiner,
federal minister of Agriculture
reported last week, quotes hlm
ns saying that we have in our
warehouses a surplus of 200 million bushels of wheat from last
year and we are currently harvesting a crop of 700 million
bushels. Gardiner then says "he
regrets we have no trade agreement with Britain to enable us
to dispose of this wheat." ln
other words, we have on our
bands close to a billion bushels
of wheat and no market!
in the same newspaper, a story
stated that Canadian automobile
manufacturers had decreed that
no British cars would be shown
at the national auto Bhow, The
auto Industry is succeeding (with
the help of tariffs imposed by Mr.
Gardiner's government) to shut
out English autos. Such is the
Alice in Wonderland economics
of capltnllsm.
Reformism isn't enough. Tbe
fundamentals are diseased and
surgery is necessary.

"A very valuable
citizen"
When a bank manager was transferred
recently a group of citizens wrote the
bank in tribute to hte sense of
public service:
"During the time he was here, we found
him to be a very valuable*citizen. He
always took a deep interest in our
community, so we feel we have lost a
valuable asset. However, we feel sure that
his replacement will be made with
a man of similar calibre."
A bank man, by the very nature of his
work, becomes part of the life around
him. During his training in various
branches, and as he takes on growing
responsibilities, he learns more and more
about people and how his bank can help
them. And he brings to his community
his personal readiness to serve in
any way he can.

Football Team Plays Best
Game Of Year-Loses 24-0
By HUTCH .
Everybody lost last weekend. The Thunderbirds played
their best game of the season against CoUege of Puget Sound,
and with some bad breaks, lost 24-0; the rugger Chiefs played
their worst game so far and fell to the North Shore All-Blacks
3-0; and the basketball team jn their first test of the year were
taken i»to camp by the Old Boys 68-59.

Battling against the breaks, the
referee and the other team, an
awesome • combination aga,inst
which no team 4ias found a successful combination, UBC's rugger-
ing Thunderbirds went down to
their first defeat In tour starts
at the hand* of North. Shore Indians on Saturday afternoon.
The ref, sporting a beautiful new
,, whistle, which he blew loudly and
long at every opportunity, succeeded In making Saturday's featured Miller Cup,rugger tilt something like a penalty-studded basketball game. After the penn Ity kick
total had zoomed Into double figures we lost count but two-tbirds

Birds.

Birds came oft second best in the

their three points which were

Grads Take Birds
Promfret Hot Worried
Coach "Genial" Jack Pomfret, much maligned coach of
the Varsity hoop squad, looked
pretty pleased yesterday after
the showing his boys put up
against the powerful Grads
team  Saturday   night   in   the
gym.
The Grada, bolstered by such
stars of bygone days as "Hooker"
Wright, ua, Rob Osborn. IS4, Ole
Baaken, Hunk Henderson, Hurry
Franklin und Buddy- McLeod and
ably led by Nev Munro with 14
and BUI Hell with 11 of the best,
held a iiloe-polnt bulge when the
Html whistle blew to take theii
third Homecoming victory.
However, the balding Bird mentor was pleased with the showing
of his lads, particularly with veteran guard Dan Znharko and rookie John McLeod who potted 12 and
U points respectively. Gary Taylor
and Ernie Nyhatig also showed
well and with some work the lib ils
sluuild be able to better last year's
record.
SOCGR TEAM LOSES
-CAH.T SCOHE QOALS
Varsity, playing one of it's
best games of the season, drop-
pod a beartbreaking encounter
to the outplayed Dominion
Hotel eleven 4-3 at South
Memorial Park.
Not once during tbe second half
did the hostel keepers cross the
centre stripe but the blue unci gold
tor winds, though laboring like tro-
jans, lucked the polish around the
net. nnd missed many scoring opportunities.
The defence of Oborne and Held
sparked thc Thunderbirds as they
trailed 4-1 at the end of the first
half an din the second stanza tht.
team started to roll but couldn't
overcome the great,  deficit.
I'ltC the university second
team still lucks a couple of goal
seoriiii; 1'orwun.U and lost to Due
Birda,   ■!-!.
It was u sad story, the football
teams' loss not for two years, in my
opinion, have tbe Thuuderblrds
fought so hard as a team and
played so well only to have the
breaks go against them.
As most fans will agree, the
score did not Indicate the play a?
two of the Loggers' t.d.'s were
definitely   of   the   flukey   variety,
especially the one which occurred
 r ^ ___.
when powers knocked a Btortinl
pass down oh the two only to have
Meske pick it off his boot tops and
go over for the major.
The definite loss of ace quarter-
buck oQrdy Flemons tor the season with a shoulder separation,
struck a demoralizing blow to the
Jellymen and with Western Washington coming up the hot and Cold
passer will be missed.
Tbeough we have blasted Gordy
in tbe paper this season we do feel
that tbe lanky boy was an asset
to tbe UBC grid machine and that
Coach Andersen will have to
search hard to find a capable signal caller and ball handler to replace him.
Back at his old stand a* left half
was George Pull, our candidate
for all conference honors, and tbe
old limn of UBC footballing (at the
ripe age of 22) played himself a
whale of a game both on offenco
and defence.
Also worthy of particular mention ls that Damon and Pythias
combination of Bob Brady and Danny Lasosky, who operate in the
forward wall like two berserk
tanks, and Bill Hortie; who, hampered with a badly wrenched knee,
caught passes and was a brick wall
on the defence, really bitting with
his tackles from the line-backers
slot.
The club was really not in tlio
first quarter and held the powerful Tacomans to a draw but started
to tire us the game progressed and
the deep reserves of the Americans
began to tell, The last half wasn't
even an equal contest, but you must
give the boys credit, they never
gave up.
Not at all disappointed after the
game Jelly summed Mt when he
said, "We Just didn't have the
bench."
".Sure, son! There's nickel aU through
the house. The heating elements in our
toaster, iron, range and percolator arc
made of iiickel-eliromium wire. Our
knives and forks are made of silver-
plated nickel silver. There's nickel in
the electric clock and thermostat.
There's a lot of nickel in our car too."
-.ust year Inco spent Z3 million dollars so
that they could produce more nickel. It's
a good thing we don't have to buy nickel
from other countries—because right now a
■lot of it is needed for equipment for our
defense."

Thoughts of a Queen Candidate,
who was sort.of forced into lt —
I was blissfully unsuspecting,
when I walked Into the Brock coffee shop last Wednesday, and
found the Higher-Uppers of the
Publications Board deep* in conference.
But when the editor offered to
buy me coffee, the executive editor
helped me off with my- coat, and
the managing editor Inquired solicitously afteV my health, a faint
cloud of suspicion began to form
in my mind. Besides, they were
Bmillng—I knew something was up.
the Higher-Uppers of the Publications Board don't often smile.
There was no point ln being
firm—they were firmer.
"But, gee, I'm not the type—besides, 1 have a feeling my great
aunt ln Chiliiwack is going to want
me to come out and see her this
weekend."
1 was fighting a losing battle . ..
for the honor of the Pub (all along
I was under the Impression we
had no honor), I must go through
with It ... I must be a candidate
for Homecoming Queen!"
From then on It was a nightmare,
confusion, noise, bustle. The Publications Board got carried away
every so often ... 1 protested.
"But, honest. I really don't look
good In a towel, can't you Just
take a picture of my face?"

"Look klttenls, please, new, a

•How does one look kittenish with
aching feet, stomach groaning, and
« fog where there should be
thoughts?
Horrible shock when I saw the
finished pics ...
"Do I really look Uke this?"
"Sorry# we'll   have   to  print   ll
anyway.''
Off again, dash, dash, we must
make posters now. Gotta get the
publicity rollln'.
And tben the parade—that was
the climax. Oh how I pitied Queen
Elisabeth, General Elsenhower —
anybody who had to do this sort
of thing very often. After a white
it all becomes a. big blur ... the
faces, curious, smiling,
frowning . . .• become one big blur.

What am I doing here? I should

FLO McNEIL WOMEN'S EDITOR
Radio Offers Positions For Women
Variety And Excitment Stressed
•y MAUREEN ROACH
Here's the Info., girls, on what
your chances are for a career ln
radio. Nearly half the staff of any
radio station is female in content.
Does that sound encouraging? Well,
here's more.
Letter Te Ih
»   Miss Flo McNeil,
Women's   Kditor,   Ubyssey,
Bear Miss McNeil,
I dare you to publish this letter
on your Women's Page. During my
past five years on the campus, I
have learned one thing — that I
dislike co-eds. To my mind, they
and the library are the most repulsive objects on the campus. *I
have now decided thut the time
has come to put forward my views
bored,!on UB(1 women with the hope that
they will think them over and perhaps act accordingly.
I have four main objections to
our coeds.
1. They are frustrated.
A female from birth, lins wlthl-.i
herself strong and vital tendencies
towards and instincts for marriage
and motherhood. Even UBC women
retain theres, but they also have
built up in their minds a desire
for independence, which in itselt
contradicts the dependent Ideal of
marriage and motherhood.
Thus we have the picture of the
frustrated female pursuing her tall
handsome football player, capturing him, then dropping him because'"she doesn't want to tied
down." The obvious results of this
sort-of conduct are'unhappy situations till the way around.  .
2. They are Inhibited.
We note that in all their social
dealings they have set up a moral
"code' within a moral code. Hence
It Is considered positively Indecent
for a co-ed to smoke on the street,
to express the. opinion that she
dislikes a sorority sister, or to go
.out with a boy shorter than 5'2".
Jn short, by being Inhibited, they
have taken all the fun out of their
own lives and the lives of the men
who surround them on the campus.
3. They think they know all
about life.
During my long stay on the
campus, I have met all too many
women wbo have. prided themselves on their ability to hold their
llqtjor as well ns any man, cuss
as  well us any man, and  can  tell
For those of' you with no expert
ence, your first will be probably
as a switchboard operator. As dull
Is it sounds it has Its tremendous
advnntabes, for the most pleasant
voiced ones get on the air soonest. -
From here on ln you have a
choice, and a big one, as to what
you can do, Secretarial or accounting work might Interest you,
or perhaps library work which In-
Includes looking after all the records that come into the station.
Then a,gal_n you might choose to
advantages for the most pleasant
and tend to the publicizing angle of
promoting the station and Its advertisements.
But by tar the most challenging
job for women ln radio lies ln the

come out and '.earn Scottish, Swedish, Hawaiian dances. You'll have
lots of fun learning these dances
and make a new group of friends.

dirty stories better than any man.
In other words, they have swapped
their superior feminine ways' for
inferior masculine traits.
To my mind, these four extremely annoying characteristics of coeds far outshine any personal
beauty that any of them may have
(but usually haven't). It is my hope
that by writing you an open letter,
which just might be published at
least some of the co-eds on the
cnmpiis, will at least have a light
by which to mend their ways.
Yours for simpler and more feminine women.

enough at It. you're Invited to join
the demonstration group. But even
if you Just turn out for the fun of
square dancing, It's worth It.
In My View
Following the popular mlxlm,
anything you can'do I can do better, Hollywood now has attempted
to outquartette the British. A quintet of O. Henry's short stories has
now reached the screen affectionately labelled "O ftenry's Full
House."
Instead of Somerset Maugham
we find liis American contemporary John Steinbeck filling ln the
pauses between the tales. What'?
more, a dozen "big name stars"
tire scattered generously throughout at a ratio of about two and a
half per play. In spite of this one
of the five comes off extremely
well.
O. Henry's first Ironic tale, "The
Cop and the Anthem," ls a brilliant
vehicle for the diverse talents ot
Charles Laughton, David Wayne
nnd a certain Marilyn Munroe.
There are good moments in the
other four stories but none of
tliem comes up to the high standard of excellence set by "The Cop
and the Anthem." Number Two—
"The Clarion CaH"--a routine
story, was given the treatment it
deserved.
In number 3, "The Last Leaf.'
Anne Baxter has to suffer, along
with the audience,' Intent physical
and psychological torment. This
dreary sequence is given a vigorous shot In the arm by rOegory
Ratoff in the role of a warm-heart-
eel Greenwich village artist.
Fred Allen and Oscar Levant
find themselves ln "The Ransom
of Red Chief," the fourth serving
of 0. Henry. The gently humorous
dialogue is hardly suited to the
snap wit and quick ad lib of Fred
Allen and, without a piano, Oscar
Levant seems utterly lost.
The well known "Gift Mif the
Magi" is the final offering in which
there are two terribly sincere performances   by   Jeanne   Craln   and
