Hecklers Raise Seven  Hundred
Engineer's Charity Orgy
Is Varsity Annual Affair
The perennial hecklers of UBC — the Engineers — have most successfully demonstrated
their charitable natures. The March of Dimes campaign may credit these industrious gentlemen with a donation of over 87(10.
Present as the guest of honor was Bruce Turner, a patient at the Children's Hospital.
He was presented vvith an Engineer's sweater and escorted by two registered nurses.
A     hard - fighting     Heme-Ec. *

AS THE AGGIES attempted to conduct their chariot
races the Engineers put up a little more than a fair fight,
in that, they are above obstructing the path with a post.
This post was possibly borrowed from the log-sawing contest in which the Engineers  won by default.

Educational System Incompetent,
But "Pupils' Aren't Helping Any
Another Tangent —
This Time On Professors
Although it is so close to Christmas
examinations and with true UBC spirit we
would hate to be coerced into some genuine work of an intellectual nature, we will
go off on a tangent today on some teaching methods we deplore.
One of our friends is presently working
on a term assignment: collecting statistics
on an occurence in 1911. The exactness of
the statistics will determine the Christmas
grade. The student is gaining absolutely
nothing from the essay. The statistics are of
no value to the student whatsoever. No
thinking is required in their compilation,
and if the student were to. memorize every
statistic involved, he would be no better off.
What is the point of his assignment?
It happens that his lecturer is compiling a book, and wishes to include a table of
statistics. Each member of the class is required to compile the statistics of a different
year so that he will be saved the trouble of
doing his work himself.
What is particularly annoying is that
so many professors are so embroiled in this
rat-race to produce obscure essays, treatises,
and books for recognition and consequently
higher pay, their lectures are unprepared.
If they must come unprepared, the
least they could do is inform the class of
this fact and allow those who have the
courage, to leave and study more profitably
When students come unprepared, that
is their own problem. No one suffers but
themselves, and no one really cares but
When professors come unprepared, that
is the students' problem. They are forced
to waste time or go to sleep. And they soon
lose respect for the professor or become
disillusioned about academic life.
The faculty may wonder, a.s indeed the
students do, wny so many extra-curricular
activities flourish on this campus. The answer lies simply in the fact that in six
classes out of ten, particularly in the Arts
and Commerce Faculties, no academic challenge is offered by the lecturers.
The faculty may wonder why students
who do quite well on examinations show
such little power to think. The answer may
lie in the emphasis placed on memorizing
reams of relatively useless statistics at the
expense of formulating thoughts and working .out solutions in class and in examinations.
And why do so many students skip so
many classes? The answer could well be
that there is little point in regularly attending those classes which offer little of a
genuine intellectual nature and much "on
the spot" lecturing or "off-hand observations." It is painful to listen to a professor
repeat from memory facts found in any text
on the subject.
We may talk of creating higher standards for students, but no higher standard
is possible until the professors set higher
standards for themselves. Asking the students to do more work is not a solution by
While we are fully cognizant of the very
fine work and excellent lectures being given
by those professors who have refused to
bow to low standards and resultant student
apathy, we must question whether these ar*
not, in fact, a minority.
A higher standard of education must be
preceeded and attended by greater preparation, more genuine concern for lecture-content, and thought-provoking assignments on
the part of those whom we suspect to hold
the dubious honor of bein.g a majority .
Arab - Isreal Problem - Here To Stay?
After the United Nations
voted to partition Palestine into a Jewish and Arab state in
November, 1947, the leaders of
the surrounding Arab countries
began calling for the Arab inhabitants of Palestine to leave
their property and go temporarily to the neighboring Arab
states "lest the guns of the invading Arab armies mow them
down" when they began pushing the Jews into the Mediterranean.
When the Arab armies from
seven countries and representing over 40 million people
were defeated and pushed back
by the 1 million Jews, the
Arabs began realizing that
they could not defeat Israel on
the battlefield. Not wishing
to have a modern state amongst the feudal Arab States
that would have social security
and all the basic freedoms, the
Arab leaders refused to accept,
as Life Magazine put it, that
"Israel is here to stay " Instead
the Arab leaders embarked on
a new kind of war against
Israel — an economic war.
This economic war has become
known as the "Arab Boycott.''
The Arabs realized that Israel was a new state, not abundant in natural resources and
at the same time that it was
accepting hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees from
war-torn Europe and from the
middle Eastern countries Seeing that as a result of all this
Israel was going to be having
difficult times economically.
'Ihe Arah leaders set out on a
policy of trying to strangle Israel ecunmnm,''! lv
The Arab League has a special committee to carry out the
boycott of Israel and has offices
throughout the Arab countries
to carry out the boycott of Israel. The boycott has meant
that Israeli shipping has not
been able to use the Suez Canal
for the past nine or ten years.
Over 100 ships of British, American, Dutch and other nationalities have been black listed
for calling at Israeli ports and
are denied all facilities at Arab
ports. Weather information
by the Arab countries is denied
to planes flying to Israel and
planes landing in Israel are
forbidden to visit Arab airports
or even to fly over Arab territory.
Less publicized, but surprisingly widespread, has been the
campaign of pressure and intimidation directed at all who
do business with Israel.
For example, firms maintaining branches in Israel are
warned to close them if they
wish to continue doing business in Arab countries.
In 1956 the boycott took on
a new and even more sinister
twist when Arab boycott officials widened their anti-Israel
policy to a general anti-Jewish
policy when they began to enquire into the racial origins of
personnel in foreign companies
exporting goods to Arab countries. Here, for example are
some questions listed in letters
sent bv tlu- Arab Boycott Office to firms in Holland. Britain and the U.S.
1 I)" you have any Jewish
employees in your company, if
yes. lum. many and what are
the   positions  held   In   !hem'.'
2. Are there any Jews on
your Board of Directors as
3. Are any of your managers
or branch managers Jews, if
yes, please give name of the
department headed by such a
4. What is the number of
Jewish laborers in your factories and offices?
Boycott regulations have
been written into the laws of
some of the Arab states. Boycott contraventions in these
countries are punishable by up
to ten years in prison with hard
labor and lines of up to 5 million  Egyptian   pounds.
While the Arab boycott has
not succeeded everywhere,
there have been a number of
companies which have either
curtailed or altogether halted
their operations in Israel. These
include Socony Vacuum Oil
Company, BOAC, British American Tobacco Co. and Dutch
Phillips Radio Works.
Israeli authorities estimate
that it. has cost Israel $300 million dollars over the last nine
years to make up for not being
able to buy oil from her Arab
neighbors and because of
Egypt's refusal to permit Israeli shipping through the Suez
Canal. This is not even estimating the losses to both the
Arabs and Israel if they had
traded  with  each other.
This problem of the Arab
boycott is just another ramification of the general Arab-
Israel problem. Only when
the Arab leaders accept that.
Israel is a "fait accompli" and
has a rigid io exist can an attempt be made to solve the
general   Arab-Israel   problem.
(Law II)
In a series of articles that
have been appearing in the
Ubyssey, entitled "Is Our Educational System Up to Par" by
Gus Kroll, and a collaborator,
Robert Graham, have attacked
our educational system and offered suggestions for improvement,
To avoid being confused
with Mr. Kroll by those casual
readers who peruse the Ubyssey between gulps of coffee,
let me state at the outset that
this is not a part of that series.
Mr, Kroll's articles seemed
inspired by Sputnik's I and II.
This article is inspired by the
fact that Mr. Kroll, while he
very ably presented his arguments, did not deal with my
particular amateur interest,
the sociological reasons behind
our educational systems failure.
He states, as I am sitting,
that the public and high school
system is inadequate, then goes
on to recommend changes at
the higher educational level.
I am largely in favor of his
recommendations, but would
add that there is much improvement to be made in the
public and high school system.
Flatly speaking, the system
is not only poor, it is completely incompetent. Students, or
more truthfully, pupils, come
to university not only knowing nothing, but without the
ability to add to their knowledge.
Their first two years, if not
more, are spent rooting around
our halls and shacks of learning in search of an education
they cannot comprehend.
Professors grey before their
time under the strain of teaching high school subjects to un-
subtle minds. A not entirely
inapt analogy is that of trying
to teach English to a group
that understands no language.
There is no common ground of
understanding where the professor can begin, unless be
draws pictures on the blackboard.
Exagerated? Perhaps, but
considerable substantiation can
be found in any first or second
year classroom.
And the classrooms are not
the only places where students
belie the claim they are acquiring an education. In cross-
table discussion in the campus'
eating places, in building halls,
in the letters to the Ubyssey,
again and again appears the
proof that the student who
comes to this university, while
he may have a high school diploma, does not have a high
school education. He has no
thought, and when he has, cannot put it into recognizable
language. And a more easily
recognizable proof is the monstrous failure rate in English.
Now who can be blamed?
The students? Yes, but only
to the extent that they are to
be criticized for failing to go
beyond the standard lowered
for them in the public and high
They have only followed natural inclinations and done as
little as they can get away
with. They are no worse than
their system.
Then are the teachers to be
blamed? No, unless they are
to be attacked for not going
beyond the bounds of their
authority. They have only to
teach to the standard inherent
in a government exam, and no
Some teachers do go beyond
the low governmental level,
and for this students should
be grateful. It is those teachers who keep the high school
system from complete failure.
So now where to rest the
blame? I said I would be sociological. I feel the fault lies
at the feet of the public generally, and more particularly
at the feet of those who are
responsible for interpreting the
public ideal of education.
Provincial governments, state
governments, Parent-Teachers
Associations and other interested bodies have wetted their
fingers to the wind and deduced this magnificent bit of
reasoning: Education should be
Says Anthony P. Suburbanite, "I never had any fun
when I went to school, but by
God my kids are going lo have
"All that crap about English
and history, and languages.
What good do they do ya?
Huh'.' Teach em practical
things, like how to clean their
teeth, be like other kids, and
nicike money. Give 'em the
chance I  never had.     And  let
'em have fun.    Fun, fun, fun."
So spaketh the man who is
really in control of what our
high school students are taught.
He never was a success, or like
other kids, but by God, he
knows he would have been if
he'd had a school to teach him.
Well, he's got schools that
will teach his kid now. He's
got schools with swimming
pools, rest periods, typewriters
and business courses, and integration lectures, and personal development classes, and
movies and recreation, and
every damn thing needed to
develop every asset but his
child's brain.
His boy is well rounded, yes
sir. A well-rounded moron.
He can swim, play pool, type,
dance and be completely unidentifiable from every other
clod in the neighborhood, but
he can't think.
Well, if Anthony P. thinks
that sort that makes the world
keep on an even course, he deserves to belong to a restricted
And that's the sort of society
he's going to belong to. This
is a society geared to be run by
the mediocre, and its education
system is geared to teach the
But if the generation before
decided its best group was its
mediocre, then the new, mediocre generation will decide
the best group within it is its
own mediocre, and so on. The
circle will tighten until mankind is ruled by a moron.
Other societies have had the
same problem. Ours is nothing new. But I wonder why.
Why, in the face of the financial opportunity to make themselves the best educated people in the world do the North
Americans insist on being the
poorest educated?
Perhaps a man named David
Reisman, sociology professor
at Chicago, ex-law professor at
Yale, and author of "The Lonely Crowd" offers some help.
Professor Reisman tells us
that North Americans are
afraid of work. We find it
something distasteful, to be
avoided as much as possible,
and worse, to be hidden under
He refers to the business
man who cannot face an afternoon of letter dictation without first a round of golf (or a
stiff drink, perhaps), or who
cannot  conceive  of  making  a
contract otherwise than over a
pleasant luncheon. Consequently, having used up business
time with pleasure, he must
now consume his pleasure time
with business, until the two become inextricably mixed and
the function of both is seriously impaired.
I suggest the same catastrophe has befallen education. It
is no longer, in North America,
good honest work, but must be
something to hove fun at,
Consequently our schools
are more renowned for comfort than scholarship, for the
seeking of pleasure than for
dedication to the search for
We have, fortunately more
in the U.S. than in Canada,
schools with swimming pools,
lounges and marvellous gymnasiums.
But the epidemic of comfort
courses has spread more ranid-
ly. We are infested with the
diseases of personal development courses, with movies, with
severely relaxed standards,
and behind it all, the fear that
poor Johnny will suffer a nervous breakdown if his brain is

Everywhere is the big stress
— take it easy, don't suffer for

And the high schools offer
enough diversion, for that pitiable character who has never
learned that one of man's finest pleasures is the satisfaction
of doing a good day's work.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
As chairman of thc Constitutional Revisions Committee, I
think some clarification is warranted concerning yesterday's
1. The Student Court is the
sole arbiter of the meaning of
the AMS's Constitution and
2. The Student Court has,
for the past several years, ruled
that fines can be imposed upon
any student or subsidiary organization that violates the
Constitution, Code, or any of
the rules or regulations that
student council enacts from
time to time.
3. It is evident that it was
the intention of past Student
Councils that subsidiary organizations be fined. If not. the
constitution would have been
ammended, in view of the
Court's decisions.
4. The Committee's interpretation of the Constitution is
that such organizations cannot
be fined for violations as stated
5. If we arc wrong, no problem arises; but if we are correct, then changes should be
made, as was done, in order to
carry out this intention.
6. Now who is to say that
we are correct in our interpretation of the AMS Constitution" Therefore, let's be a little
more cautious before we start
accusing the Council as an
"Ivory Tower."

Christmas. The jolly old fat

the real meaning of Christmas.
It's more than just a day, it's

I will have helped to further

Editor. The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
In an article entitled "Did
Mr. Darling Understand Mr.
Charles," the author, Corinne
Robertshaw, not only distorts
the meaning of Mr. Darling's
article, but also has the temerity to suggest that Mr. Darling's language is "very imperfect", "clumsy", and "insensitive" and that he should "reflect on his own proficiency in
English usage" before criticizing Mr. Charles.
Miss Robertshaw should "reflect on" HER "own proficiency in English usage" before
criticizing Mr. Darling's. Improper placement of commas,
mis-spelled words and vague
usage of words characterize
her analysis.
During his stay on the campus, Mr. Charles spoke at St.
Andrew's Chapel and at Arts
100. In bo1!i speeches. I received the inference if not the
actual words that Mr Charles
would not be displeased if communism replaced the present
government in India. This was,
I believe, what Mr. Darling
meant   in   his   article,   but   did
not make clear.
On the question of foreign
aid to India, I would like to
say that any country such as
the United States or Canada
which gives aid to India, expects "favours" in return. So
does Russia. Mr. Charles, apparently, does not believe that
tiiis is so. If he would only
look past New Delhi into Hungary, Poland and the other
satellites of the Soviet Union
he would see examples of what
Miss Robertshaw refers to as
"political  salvation".
Perhaps Miss Robertshaw
should remove her nose from

UBC Rugby
The English Rugby picture at
UBC, so far this season, seems
better than ever. The three top
teams have won the vast majority of their games, spectator attendance has improved, and a
more controversial outlook has
centred on the game.
The Varsity Chiefs have not
quite lived up to their pre-season
billing, having won four, drawn
two and lost one. However, in
last Saturday's 33-0 whitewash
of the N.S. All-Blacks, they may
have broken their mild slump.
It was the tremendous spirit
and teamwork, lacking in some
degree in previous games, which
really spelled the difference. Although, naturally, someone has
to score the points in a game,
in this contest no one person
can be singled out for special
honors. The forwards and backs
worked together like clock work
and some of their scoring thrusts
were truly picture plays.
By the way, we are willing
to bet, that, except for the final
Thunderbird game a week ago
yesterday, the Chiefs have out-
drawn the football team in fan
The UBC Braves arc currently
sitting on top of the Second Division standings with seven
straight wins. This team has perennially been the number one
squad in the Bell-Irving Cup
competition and seems very likely to repeat this year.
UBC Tomahawks or Papooses
(as they are sometimes called)
have also enjoyed a great season. Their only loss in seven
games has been at the hands of
the Braves.
At the bottom of the rugger
ring lie the Redskins. Although
thc scores have sometimes been
close, they have managed only
one victory in seven starts. However, one must remember that
the 'Skins play in the same league as the Braves and the Tomahawks and can't really be expected to show as well as teams

obtained possesion of the ball
within the last 12 seconds and
mired giving them thc 50-48

Is The Best
The Ubyssey sports staff
salutes the outstanding football
player of the nation, Mr. Jackie
We also salute the best fool-
ball team in Canada, the aforementioned Mr. Parker's Edmonton Eskimos.
Although they lost the Western finals to an amazing Winnipeg team the Eskimos remain
in our books as the best team of
the  1957 season.
The Blue Bombers arc responsible for thc upset of the year
md nothing should be said to
belittle their feat. But after
.■lowing the game on TV, we
■emain firmly convinced that
he Eskimos are the better team.
Notwithstanding the final score.
'Ihe Grey Cup is actually just
n anticlimax because the two
est teams in Canada arc not
ompeting for it.
The second best team in the
West will probably win. We
■eally don't care what happens.-
