The     Provincial     Govern-
ment   announced   today   that
$700,000 has been granted to
the Medical Faculty of the
University of British Columbia to finance the construction of buildings on the campus and at the Vancouver
General Hospital.
The grant was authorized
by order in council of March,
10f).'i, and will be financed by
a  bund issue.  llcuson for the
delay in announcing the
grant is not known. It will
be advanced to the General
Hospital through the Department  of Public  Works.
A $550,000 Pathology centre will be built at the General for the training of UBC
medical students.
The remaining $150,000
will provide facilities for the
Kludy of pediatics, obstetrics,
and   gynecology.
The money is one of the
biggest boosts the Medical
Faculty has received since its
inception on the campus in
1948. During six long years
of constant agitation the meds
have existed in their little
white bungalows between
the  Main  and  West   Malls.
The buildings will also provide a means for research into  all   branches  of   medicine.

Art For Arts Sake
Do you own a Canadian painting?
This is one of the choicest of the inanities which have
been thrust at Canadians over the past five to ten years by
those who are prostrate before the god of "Canadian culture."
We would ask these fervent fools: Do you own a Canadian flag?  It is a much more sensible question.
Art needs more  appreciation  from  everyone  in  the
country, but not on the condition it is "Candian." We have
.enough prairies, partridges and paddles in our art, have
been expected too long to enjoy second-rate works because
. they are "Canadian."
There is no reason whatever why the Canadian public
should adjust its tastes in the interests of nationalism. We
should seek that which is best,, and not that which is Canadian. Jingoism is bad enough when it is relevant.
Do you own a painting?
Our   Northland
MacLean's Magazine has devoted its entire latest issue
to Canada's north, and after surveying the information it
gathered the magazine sums up in an editorial thusly: "We
haven't done right by our north."
The contention seeing justified.
The magazine states: "We have recently created a Federal Department of Northern Affairs whose primary task will
be to correct the ills of absentee landlordism. The ills are
there in plenty: the myth, so easy to believe back here in the
comfort of the manor house, that the north is booming, '
when, in fact, great areas are seriously depressed; the
legend that we arid our allies have solved the problem of
northern defense when, in fact, we've only decided to forget
it; the fiction that we are educating the northern Indian and
- Eskimo to be of greater use to themselves and their country
when, in fact, we are turning them into a dependent peasantry."
The "absentee landlordism" is what really disturbs the
magazine editors. They fear that Canada could lose its
northland—to either friend or foe—if it continues to be
neglected and unpopulated. They point to the fact that people
of every nationality are to be found in the north—except
This could be more than an editorial big stick. Americans, for instance, have shown considerable interest in our
north, as evidenced by the Alaska highway and the appearance of industries such as Alcan and Frobisher.
The fact that Canadian industry has chosen to almost
ignore our north—despite considerable American enthusiasm
—is one of the reasons why our North remains unpopulated
and a greater population is the north's greatest need.
It is also difficult to see how' industries can be persuaded
to go into the north, when it is at present almost an unknown entity. Canadian science knows little about its industrial possibilities. Large sections of it are unmapped.
The north must be made attractive, to both Canadian
people and Canadian industry. As far as we can see, this
responsibility lies with the Federal Government.
The economic and social ills described by MacLean's
-should be remedied as soon as possible, so the north may
attract people. The industrial possibilities which have yet to
be assessed should be learned as soon as possible, so the
north may attract industry.
Then we should be able to carry out our responsibilities with some enthusiasm.
Those suffering from a chronic disapproval of the United
States may be inclined to dismiss the recent congressional
election results with the remark "Tweedle-dum and tweedle-
dee—so what?"
But^ there are differences between the two parties.
There are differences which make a Democratic victory good
news indeed.
It's well known that the Democrats have always been
been more disposed to Canadian trade—or any trade, while
the Republicans are prepared to adopt whatever protectionist measure their friends in business request.
More than this, however, we would like to to see: a
"change in American foreign policy as practised-by the Republicans. President Truman's containment policy was reasonable. But the political footwork exhibited by Secretary of
State Dulles since the Republican victory has given us some
With shouts of "Liberation" and "Let's get tough," Mr.
Dulles has ridden about like Don Quixote, tilting his lance
of "massive retaliation" at every windmill he could see.
The only solution to the world's ills at present is the
much advertised "peaceful co-existence", and this won't be
achieved by sticking out our tongues at the communists. If
the Democrats have any of the friendliness and astuteness
of tbe late Franklin Roosevelt—and we think Mr. Stevenson
and his associates have—some sort of peaceful co-existence
would be possible.
This won't be achieved by a Democratic Congress But
a Democratic executive may be on the way.

"Isn't that a little funny?" she
"What is there ot which to

"What, indeed! I exclaimed.
"There is everything to be free
of. Everything. There are hat»
reds and scorns and desire and
streetcars, there's petty morality and the sin that must rot in

"each other to be free of."
"Ah." She nodded.
"Listen, My One Great
Love," I said, "nod sagely if you
will, but I know you do not understand, for to be free ot each
other is the final freedom and
I too, am amazed that it can
mean this. But I see the beauty.
And I love amazement.
"It means," I continued, in
a lower key, "that two people
—these two ants—are trans-
cendentally happy. Entirely released from bonds of the here-
below. Sent, soaring, to the infinite beyond1 I, myself could

"Separately," she added.
I nodded slowly. "How else
can one be free?"
"By forgetting oneself ..."
"That's what they really do!"
I cried. . . . "and remember
the other."
I lit a cigarette, caught the
eye of the waitress, and had
her bring us more coffee. She
seemed oddly happy to be able
to do this. Silently I instructed
myself to leave a tip.

The waitress had brought

As we went out, the girl

of the group who wanted to pee
a smaller pool built.
This group felt that while the
number of people interested in
aquatics did not warrant a big
pool, student swimmers should
at least have facilities on tne
campus that and a new small
pool was the best solution.
"Don't go and < put a roof on the
big pool," said one burly suntanned student. "It's no jfun
swimming indoors in summer."
Finally there were those who
said no to any pool roofing or
building at all. "L^t's put a rpof
on the Brock |irst," was an almost immediate response from
this froup. Many alio felt t^iat
the money going to the pocjKs)
would be better spent on studr
ent residences or should go {towards a new arts building. Feeling that the enthusiasm for aquatics did not justify the expense
of the construction was particularly strong in this group.

The next selection, Benjamin
Britten's "Young Person's Guide
to the Orchestra," featured a
demonstration of all the instruments in the orchestra, with appropriate commentary by Hoffman.
After a short intermission, the
orchestra played Beethoven's
"Fifth Symphony," this time,
with no explanation.
The concert lasted until 2:30,
and most students forsook their
afternoon lectures and stayed
to the end of the concert. This
was partly due to the excellence
of the performance, and also to
the fact that it was raining very
hard outside.

Homecoming Games To
See B'ball In. Football Out
UBC   Hoopmen   To   Make
Year's   First   Appearance
Age meets its nemesis Saturday night at 8:15 when the
old grads of UBC basketball return to face the ambitious and
young Thunderbirds. But nobody has yet proposed that the
linament brigade will go down under the dash of the young
fry. «
As Jack Pomfret puts it, "those
fellows are smart."
And he's right, as usual. The
grads, who will be sparkling
with names of past greats like
Sandy Robertson, who is almost
an immortal in Vancouver Basketball circles, Reid Mitchell,
Normie Watt and Nev Munro will
be using their skill to offset the
condition advantage of the Birds.
Reid and Mitchell are still
active, and from their guard
positions will be giving the
Birds a lot of trouble. Munro,
the high scoring forward last
year with Eilers, announced
Wednesday his decision to retire
from active hoop circles because
of back trouble. But he will
probably be out with his old
UBC's great grads of only
last year will also be well represented. Geoff Craig, now performing for Cloverleafs will be
here. Brian Upson is in Powell
River, but it ia hoped he will
be stripping. Danny Zarharko
is away on graduate scholarship
to the University of Illinois.
The list still goes on. Harry
Kermode, Bobby Scarr, Bill Bell,
Art Stillwell, Art Phillips, Ron
Stewart, Dave Campbell will
all probably be there.
All who appear will get a
chance to show the stuff that
once made them campus stars.
Bob Osborne, who coached in the
days of Robertson will probably
have the distinction of being
the most grey-haired one present.
As for the youth, this will be
the first showing of Pomfret's
brand new Birds. Jack has a
distinct new look in his hoop
stars this year, being mi,nus no
less than 7 of the members of
the team that slaughtered Alberta in the spring.
He'll be without first string
guards Upson and Zaharko, and
his number one center 6' 5"
Geoff Craig. And forward Bob
Bone has not appeared on Jack's
Buz Hudson, and Gary Taylor are still performing for Coryell's football players. Nyhaug,
meanwhile is keeping in shape
for the Evergreen Conference
by burning up the Senior B
Jack is depending on John
McLeod for most of his scoring
punch. Big John, last year a
unanimous choice as Conference
all-star, is the one very bright
star in his sky.
At present, Jim Carter, who
saw only limited action last year
wtih the Birds, is Jack's only
sure center. Jim Pollock is his
only returning forward.
In an effort to put some height
on his forwards, Jack has brought
up Dave Milne, from South Burnaby, Bob Holt, and Bob Wool-
ett, Woolett, incidentally, looks
and plays something like Harry
His only returning guards are
Herb Forward and Stu Madill,
both of which have younger
basketball playing brothers at
UBC. Frank Tarling, winner of
the Senior A rookie of tiie year
award, will be playing Saturday.

backfielder who startled fans

with his ferocious running is

There is even a danger the
Birds will lose their unchallenged B.C. supremacy until Jack
can bring his team along to the
standard he and they reached
last year.
Birds   Take   On   Central
In    Last   Evergreen   Tilt
The wildest one is nigh. On Saturday hordes of alums
will take over the campus and flow, screaming and stewing
into the stadium for the greatest, the most colossal, the beer-
owdiest football spectacle of the season.
The student body will
the new stands and give frantic
competition to the bellowing oldsters as they "Give 'em a UBC"
for the yet un-unbeaten Thunderbirds.
Don Coryell's crew will meet
Central Washington Wildcats in
the festive Homecoming game
and none need to be told the
importance of this match to the
students ,the team, and to the
When he was asked what the
Bird's chances are on Saturday,
coach Coryell answered, "Cen-
Heeding the call of its random (me), the Private Line
returns to give forth with a few cheers and tears.
Twelve Thunderbirds will wear the blue and gold for the
last time in Evergreen Conference competition in this Saturday's Homecoming tilt against Central Washington.
Judging from the student support given to football I can hear
a loud chorus of "So whats."
So this.
Playing football at UBC is at best a dubious distinction. At
most other colleges a member of the football team is looked on
with some admiration. At UBC he is looked at as if he had some
strange disease such as jungle rot.
After last week's rather spirit-shaking loss to College of Puget
Sound, more than one student could be heard saying, "God, what
a lousy game. I could have done better.
Well mister, if you could have done better, Coach Coryell
always has an extra set of pads and a helmet waiting for you.
Good or bad, win or lose, the team that wears the blue and
gold is UBC's football team. They're the guys who are playing
for no other reason than that they like to play. They're the guys
that risk their limbs every Saturday afternoon for UBC; the guys
that give their all and leave the field bone-weary and battered
very often to the accompaniment of the jeers of UBC students.
There is no financial inducement to play football at UBC and
we  hope  there  never  will   be.  There  are  no  good  high  school
football coaches to teach the boys how to play ball before they
reach University and it desn't look as if there ever will be.
The majority of the boys that play for UBC start from scratch
once here and take their lumps and learn the hard way. It's no
fun to leern your football in the Evergreen Conference; it's no fun
to be pushed up against a wall every Saturday afternoon and be
Yet they do it and they like it and they deserve our admiration and support.
Pete Gregory, Ernie Nyhaug, Bob Brady. Gordie Elliot,
Dick Matthews, Gary Taylor, Denny Dallas, Ken Ross, Ross
Rayment, John Newton, Ted Duncan and Gerry Stewart are
the twelve who will be playing their last Conference contest.
For some, like Newton, Taylor, Duncan and Dallas  it was
their first and last year. For others, like Gregory, Elliott, Stewart,
'Matthews and Brady this year is the end of three and four years
toil for UBC.
The University owes each and every one of them a thankyou
no matter how good, bad or mediocre their efforts were. The thing
that counts is that they did make an effort.
On Saturday the student body should be on hand to voice
their personal thanks.

Coryell must have performed
some mystic and wonderful rites

definitely become alive. And if
they don't destroy each other

big, as well as the wild one.
The weather could easily be
another important factor in Saturday's match. It is well known
