Ubyssey Reporter Barred
From Campus Socred Meet
Claim Matters 'Flayed Us
With Lies7 In News Stories
A Ubyssey reporter was asked to leave a meeting of the campus  Social  Credit  Club
Thursday noon, "because you have flayed us w ith lies."
Campus Socred President Howard Johnston told reporter?	
John Matters to leave the meeting because he objected to
the alleged "slanting" of Ubyssey stories appearing under
Matter's by-line.
Matters  was  "continually blasting Social Credit  policy
on personal grounds," Johnston said.

He stated he would not proceed with the meeting while
Matters was present.
The decision was premeditated. Matters said. Socred ex-
President Mel Smith told Matters he had heard of the decision
to elect him (Matters) on Wednesday, the reporter said.

The sorties occurred after
Ubyssey staffers, who snitched
Alberta Premier E. C. Manning's
hat in Edmonton last month,
issued a challenge to Toronto
pubsters to try the same thing.
The Varsity attacks have
ranged from polite enquiry "May
we have your hat. please, Mr.
Frost?" to break-and-enter attempts on the Premier's private
office.
In one atempt, a Toronto pubster rushed past the Premier's
secretary in broad daylight, and
into the Premier's ofifce. The
Premier was absent, so was his
hat. The pubster rushed out
again, and escaped apprehension.
During another unsuccessful
sortie, pubsters lay in wait for
the Premier along his morning
route, waiting to snatch the hat
from his head as he passed. The
Premier never appeared.
Abduction attempts will continue, Varsity Managing Editor
Mike Cassidy intimated. A trophy is needed ior the annual

The 'Big Lie' In Action
The Big Lie
The "Big Lie" is back again.
This propaganda technique, developed by Mr. Goebbels
during the rise and fall of Fascism, is quite simple, really:
to dupe millions of people, don't tell small lies; tell big ones,
lies so monstrous that everyone is reluctant to believe they
possibly could be fabricated. When the big lie is repeated
often enough, it eventually comes to be believed by while
nations and races of people.
Not surprisingly, our friends the Russians have adopted
this technique to combat the wave of moral indignation
directed against them after their savage repression of the
Hungarian people.
To show what we mean, we've reprinted on this page
an item from the Soviet News Bulletin, which daily dispenses "information" on the USSR from the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa. To see how the big lie works, read it, and
reflect on the fact that millions of people already believe
it, and are probably willing to fight in defense of it.
Happily, the West need not resort to another Big Lie
to counteract the effects of the first, for free people have a
way of responding, even in this mass media age, not to big
lies, but chiefly to that curious amalgam of fact, unreality
and slant which, with reservations, can be called the truth.
Get Hip, Dulles
Why doesn't the USA send more jazz bands abroad-
A   wonderful   opportunity   is   being   overlooked.
All over the world, an astonishing number of people are
plainly wild about American jazz. When Dizzy Gillespie
played Turkey, the effect was incredible. To use a hip expression.   The  Turks   were  gassed.
When Louis Armstrong plays anywhere abroad, the
police have to be called out restrain the mobs of happy
people.
Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington, Gerry Mulligan, Norman
Granz and many others on private tours have all been received with wild enthusiasm wherever  they appeared.
And a passion for jazz isn't restricted to this side of the
Iron Curtain either. There's a lively black market in American jazz records in Russia.
The State Department, however , hasn't seen fit to exploit ihe situation. Due probably to the fact that jazz i.s still
only   semi-respectable   at   home,   the   State   Deparment   is
hesitatingly—or is full of squares who aren't aware of the opportunity.
We'll bet our Dave Brubeck collection against John
Foster Dulles' dispatch case that one gix-d jazz concert abroad
would win more friends for America than two million
dollars worth of foreign aid.
The reason" The America foreign aid program lacks
showmanship. A large aid grant, no mat,'or how economically beneficial, has little or no appeal to the man in the international street. But warm personal contact lias; that's why
Messrs. Bulganin and Kruschev on their diplomatic vaudeville tours were able to achieve more with smiles and morn-
isr-' of aid than Mr. Dulles ran achieve with the lmno.st
article it>clf.

Under the title "Sanguinary
Crimes of the Fascist-Horthy
Bandits Have Been Exposed
Before the Entire World" —
"Pravda" carries stories by
Czechoslovak eyewitnesses on
the crimes perpetrated by the
counter-revolution in Hungary.
"Pravda" reprints these stories
from "Rude Pravo" of November 5 and 7. A Czechoslovak
journalist, Otakar Svercina,
writes:
"The liquidation of counter
revolution in Hungary put an
end to the untold sufferings
experienced by the Hungarian
people who, for eleven days,
were at the mercy of the most
horrible terror by criminal reactionary bands.
GRIM DAYS
Together with ether Csech
newsmen I lived through these
grim days for Hungary, at
times in Budapest, at times in
other Hungarian cities and villages. We rode more than 2000
kilometres and at many points
saw with our own eyes the bitter fighting between the progressive Hungarian people and
fascist gangs of terrorists.
"In the tiny village of Bud-
akes, roughly 10 kilometres
away i'rom Budapest, we conversed with one of the counter
revolutionary chieftains about
the real political aims of the
uprising, of which at that time
the Hungarian people had not
the slightest inkling.
FIRST DEMAND
The first demand of the counter revolutionaries was the liquidation of the Hungarian
Working People's Party. Hungarian reaction understood full
well that the Communists
would never stand for an anti-
popular policy and therefore
decided through stark fascist
terror to destroy the Party and
its workers bodily.
"The second demand set forth
by the ringleladers of thc counter revolution was to snatch
Hungary away from the family
of socialist countries, to demolish the gains of the working
folk, and to revert the country
back to capitalism.
"They wished to achieve
these goals .step by step, al
first setting up in Hungary a
provisional government composed of former reactionary
Morthy officers. Emigre political traitors were to have been
invited only as a second step.

ROUGH OUTLINE
"Such in rough outline was
the program counter revolution
set before us in Budakes. In
this village, the counter-revolutionary ringleaders had organized an attack on the local population, held them under terror
and had murdered off all progressive functionaries.
In Budakes arms were being given out to sundry adventurers and criminals let out of
jails. They were then sent off
to Budapest and villages in the
vicinity to prepare a blood-bath
for the Hungarian people. In
Budakes itself these terrorist
elements, absolutely alien to
the Hungarian people, showed
with thc utmost clarity the idea
of their 'new order'.
"In their reign of terror the
armed criminals serving the
aims of counter revolution
were in no way inferior to the
Nazi SS hangmen. They drove
the Secretary of the Budakes
local organization of the Hungarian Working People's Party
out onto the square, and kicked
and beat this Hungarian patriot
to death and then, like a pack
of hyenas, tore him to shreds.
"Anyone who happened to be
in Hungary these days could
cite hundreds of similar instances of fascist terror. Residents
of the Hungarian capital saw
more than once how gangs of
counter revolutionaries dragged bound Hungarian patriots
through the streets of Budapest
and kicked and mutilated them
until these defenceless victims
of terror died in horrible agony.
PROVED HELPLESS
"The berserk madness of
the counter revolution mounted
and Imre Nagy's government
proved helpless. On the contrary, it kept on yielding to
every demand of counter revolution and actually helped to
arm thc counter revolutionary
gangs. A feeling of utter uncertainty and fear held all Hungarian families in thrall.
"The counter revolutionary
ringleaders succeeded in poisoning masses of ignorant people with the venom of chauvinism and racism.
"Matters went so far that the
homes of Soviet citizens living
in Hungary were raided and
anti-Jewish pogroms look place.
Many Soviet citizens were for
ced to seek refuge at the homes |
of their friends.
"The government proved I
powerless to check the spread j
of these criminal excesses.
"Imre Nagy gave in to every ]
new demand of the counter revolution which kept on putting I
forth more and more all  thel
time.
SNEAK INTO HUNGARY
"Hungary's western frontier|
where, earlier, security measures had been unwisely cancelled, thus allowing foreignl
agents to sneak into Hungary,!
was open still wider these days!
to sundry ellements hostile tol
the Hungarian people. During!
the days the counter revolution!
stalked the streets of Budapest,|
one could often see armed bandits who had been recruited inl
large numbers from camps inl
Western Germany with the akn|
of terrorizing the Hungarian!
population.
RAPINE AND MURDER
"I came across several suchl
adventurers   brought   in   from
a refugees' camp at  7irnd°rff|
near Nuremberg in the Amer-I
ican   occupation   zone  of  Germany.    One of them told me
he had done laundry at camp|
and had been in dire straits.
"However, as soon as disturbances  broke  out  in  Hungary, |
the Americans offered the Hungarian  emigres  the  chance tsl
return  home.    The Americans
also took the trouble of rapidly
transporting these    'liberators'
from Western Germany. These |
traitors were armed and merged with the counter revolution-l
ary  gangs  of murderers.
"Eyewitnesses   in   Budapest,|
Gyor   and other places, where]
Soviet  troops  came,   can   confirm the fact that the presence!
of Soviet military units introduced  into the tempest of de-l
velopments elements of pacifi-l
cation and  a feeling of assur-f
ancc.    Thanks    to    the Soviet!
troops a huge wealth of economic   and   cultural   values   was!
saved to thc Hungarian people!
from   the  devastating   tornado|
of the counter revolution.
"Thus, ihe Hungarian peoplel

We see by the papers that the
Social Credit League has recommended revision of high school
economics textbooks, in the interests of accuracy. Tho chapters on money and banking, the
Socreds say, are inconsistent,
and they've offered to improve
them.
This sort of thing has unlimited possibilities. For instance, we can imagine "Jerry
and Jane" after the prophets of
Social Credit have removed the
inaccuracies.
For instance, here's Chapter II
(revised) where Jerry and Jane
take a holiday down by the river
. . . when:
Jane says:  O Jerry. See the
people. See. see. They are cheering and watching Premier Ben-
nelt.   He has made a new bridge
for us.   How nioel He is kissing
babies.    How  the  people  love
him!   His face is kind. See, see,
his face is kind.
Jerry says: O Jane you have
dropped your little red ball in
the river. Look. Look. It is
floating away! *»
No, no, says Jane. That kind
man Mr. Gaglardi has jumped
in. after it. He will bring me
back my ball. Mr. Gaglardi is a
good man. He loves us so. See.
see.
Look. Look. Here he comes,

and kiss him.    Mr. Gaglardi is
a good man and he loves all the
little children.
Jim says: Look Jerry. Look
at Jane. Mr. Gaglardi is kissing
her. Look. look. Ugh, ugh. I
hope he doesn't kiss me.
Look Jerry, look at Jane. Now
he is giving her a sheaf of pamphlets. They are so pretty. All

Not Coming Here
Treasure van, the glorified bazaar and sale, sponsored
by the World University Service of Canada, will not stop
at U.B.C. this year.
 _—_^    This bazaar, by displaying and
selling international handicraft,
tries to provide funds for the international relief program o£
W.U.S. scholarships, and promote trada with other countries.
The treasure van cannot operate profitably at U.B.C. because >t is so far from the city.
It docs operate profitably at
other universities, however,
where the public can come and
buy the goods.
Treasure van will return to
the campus next year, with the
W.U.S. working in conjunction
with Victoria College, but this
is still in the planning stage.

CAMPERS   POLLED
Acadia Life Rapped
By   ROSEMARY
KENT-BARBER
"If you've got a good temper
and a lot of patience you can
live here."
That's the way one student
sums up life in the battered
collection of huts that fondly
passes itself off as Acadia.
Over 150 co-eds live at Acadia and their complaints about
life there aren't bitter but
merely plaitive.
IMMUNE
"I've got immune to the
noise here over the years,"
sighed Grace Shoemaker, Arts
4. "I used to be able to hear
if anyone even breathed next
door, but I don't anymore," she
said,
"Recreation's all right now
they've got the piano fixed,"
said Wendy Amor, Arts 2. "We
have radio and ping pong in
the common room now, too,"
she said, proudly.
"It's all right for the girls
but the boys haven't got a place
for any sports, they should
have a field for football," said
June Brett, Home Ec. 2, unselfishly.
OVERCROWDED!
Overcrowding in the huts did
get some complaints and they
weren't unselfish either.
"Either the rooms should be
twice as large or there should
be only one girl to a room,"
Inger Hansen, Arts 2, said.
"There's no place to study,"
Elonise Harrison, Law 3, said.
"We can't study in our rooms
because of the noise and they
turn the heat off in the study
hall so it's too cold to study
there," she said.
"Ouf8V2'xll' room is really
crowded with two girls, our
trunks, a couple of desks and
chairs and our double decked
bunk," Lil Toporchak, Ph. Ed.
2 and Jane Tomlinson, Ph. Ed.
1, said.
HORRORS)
"Our radiator leaks all the
time and our dresses trail on
the floor in "the cupboard because there isn't enough space,"
they said.
"If I open the door I can't
get at my bureau," Olga Orloff,
Arts 3, complained. "My bed's
as big as my room," she said.
"We should have proper shoe
racks," Louise Heal, Ph. Ed. 4,
said. "I have to put mine on
top of a box under my bed,"
she said.
Laundry problems also received a few comments from
the   girls.     "There   aren't  en-

"Everything's always dripping and we have no special
room for laundry," Dianne
Ramsten, Arts 4, said.
MALTREATMENT
"We shouldn't have to clean
the washrooms ourselves and
the walls should be painted,"
Lorraine Brand, Arts 4, said
"We should have opaque glass
instead of curtains," Marjorie
Gilbert, Arts 3, said.
• Heating is a problem in some
of the huts, the girls said. '.'I
turn my radiator on full rate
and it's still cold, there's never
enough pressure," Sandy Scott,
P.Ed. 2, said.
"There's never enough hot
water after 7 o'clock," Ruth
Gibson, Arts 4, said.
ONE-ARMED BANDITSI
"I lose about 50 cents a
month, the paybooths just take
the dimes and nothing happens," Madeline Lauener, Nursing 4, said. "The telephone
rings all the time and sometimes at 8 o'clock Sunday morning," Hilary Hale, Arts 3, said.
"Our hut telephone situation
is pretty good, we have one
phone and 18 girls," Selma-Joe
Dixon said. She was perfectly
serious.
FOOD "AWFUL"!
Food was hardest hit in the
Ubyssey-taken spot survey.
"The packed lunches are awful," Pat Lovick, Com. 1, said.
"We have a slab of meat on
a slab of bread and the roast
meats in the cooked lunches
are always cold," she said.
"The scrambled eggs taste
like green rubber," Deana
Clancy, Nur. 1, said. "I'd like
to analyse the soups in my
Home Ec. lab," Sylvia Gott,
Home Ec. 4, said.
Nicest thing about Acadia
life is the rules, the girls said.
"The only rules we have are
those necessary for the running
of the camp," Anne Richard,
Arts 2, said. "It would be nice
to have boys over for coffee
once in a while, though," she
said, wistfully.

working in radio.
Jerry Gilbert, how working
with CBUT, has a poem, "The
Mink Flied," in the book.
Born in Calgary, at attended
school in Vancouver and Toronto before coming to UBC for
two years of arts. When at UBC,
Gilbert was famous as one of
the founding fathers of the Critics Circle.
Maurice Gibbons,  last year's
famous Ubyssey cartoonist—his
pen-name was "Magi"— has two
pieces, "Relativity," a poem, and
"Amid the Alien Corn," which
was  first   published   in   Raven,
the   UBC    Literary   magazine

No Interest Due
To Pure Publicity
Luck ol' student interest in athletics was discussed at a
nvns' at'leiic mcMim; Wednesday. Public Relations Officer
John <'iiltorlivlcl :i;r:; hi. vkw, on the matter in this column.
Editor.
Cy JOHN Iil'TTERFIFXD
At Wednesday's Mens' Athletic meeting there was a
thorough discussion of the lack of .student interest in athletic and particularly in the spectator sports. When the
question was raised, the immediate reaction of the meeting
was to point out that in order to draw crowds, we must
win games. This it not altogether the case.
This attitude seems to me to be a means of easy ecape
from the problems. It might be noted that last year we had
one of the best basketball teams seen on this campus in a
long time. The 'Birds won a good share of the games and all
scores were very close, yet the average truiTiber of students
attending each of the conference games was less than 200.
HIRE STRIPPER
Further on in this same discussion someone suggested
that another reason for poor attendance might be the lack
of showmanship and high-pressure publicity involved in the
presentation of spectator sports. As basketball became the
key subject of the discourse, it was suggested.that in order
to attract crowds, elaborate halftime displays might be prepared as drawing cards. One person advocated hiring a strip-
teaser on a six-game package deal basis.
There are people who like strippers and there are
almost as many people who like basketball games, but
making a show out of a ball-game appears to me to defeat
the primary purpose of .staging the game: that is to provide
fair competition and enjoyment for the participants and in
so doing, in the ease of spectator sports, to allow members
of the public to benefit from watching a good game.
POOR PUBLICITY
It is my opinion that neither winning nor shwmanship
provide the full answer. I feel that if less emphasis were
given to the RAH-RAH-get-out-and-support-your-team altitude, and an effort were made to approach publicizing
and reporting of campus sports from the point of view of
the average student's interest in the game as a competition,
then a sound step would be taken toward encouraging a
more mature student attitude to our spectator sports.
A large number of people ignore UBC athletics simply
because of the tendency of our publicity to use several
negative-superlatives in the place i,-f a paragraph on constructive ciiticism. The majority of potential spectators are
easilly affected by the PRINTED WORD, and it doesn't
take much uninspired reporting to make a student avoid
identifying himself in any way with our athletic teams.
If a news article says the 'Birds have played the sort of a
game one shouldn't be caught dead at, then the potential
spectator makes sure he WON'T be caught dead at any games
and that's all there is to it.
SET  UP   COMMITTEE
It doesn't take many students with this sort of outlook
to set a tone in thc University of general indifference- to college sports, and that is certainly the tone which has been
set at UBC. In Wednesday's athletic meeting the course
of discussion made all the delegates painfully aware of this
situation and as a result, a five-man committee was set up
to report on possible means of remedying the problem.
Bearing in mind the approaches of improved performance,
showmanship and better public relations, this committee
headed by letterman Stan Glasgow, will try to provide
a long overdue reappraisal of tho position of UBC spectator
sports in relation to the .students and to the general public. We hope that interested students will support Stan
in this project and offer what suggestions they may have
for  the   consideration   of  his   committee.

UBC Eight Crew Places Second
Four-Oared  Crew Triumphs;
Aussies Take Eight-
Four  Beats Germany
Thunderettes    Win     Puckst©rS   Win
By KEN WIEBE
UBC's four-oared rowing crew came through with a smashing victory in the first heat of the Olympic trials in Australia.
The four men responsible for this upset are cox Archie
McKinnon, Lome Lormer, Walter D'Hondt and Don Arnold.
UBC eight, facing the toughest
competitors in the draw, placed
second to Australia in the eight-
oared   competition.
With all the publicity centring around the eight-oarcd crew
from B.C., nobody paid much
attention to the four. They not
only won but actually ran away
from t he rest of the field. They
finished with a time of 6:36.6.
Germany came in second. Aus-
; traiia third and Denmark fourth.
In the remaining four-oared
heats U.S. beat out France and I
! Cuba with a time of 6:59.2; Russia won over Hungary, 6:39.7,
and Italy beat Poland and Finland  6:41.9.
The four teams will draw
again   lor   the   semi-finals.
Canada was beat by a scant
1.3 seconds in thc first heat of
the eight-oared competition.
Australia, one of the strongest
crews ever to represent that
country, finished first with a
time of 6:05.8. Canada followed
with 6:07.1, USA was third with
6:09.1 and Britain placed fourth
with   6:23.9.
Only team eliminated in the
meet was Britain. However, they
are not out of the running as all
losers will race as will all winners, and victors of these sprints
will match strokes in the final.
The Australian eight, who
have a team average of 193
pounds and feel quite at home
in the shallow waters are slight
favorites to come out on top
in  the finals.
U.S. crew, with all their experience and confidence, dropped slightly in thc odd-makers'
books, the Yale eight were in top
shape and showing good form
in practice; however, the poor
course was giving them trouble.
Comparison of the crews and
their styles and equipment has
been the talk of the rowing village at Balarat. The Japanese
crew showed up with a 48-foot
aluminum and plastic shell and
a 145-pound average weight.
They and UBC are thc youngest
ciews in Ihe compt t;tinn. The
Swedish eight also produced a
new shell dc.-ign of plastic which
will pl.'iiie the water instead of
knifing it.
Their Second Game
UBC Thunderettes won their
second game of the season
in the city "A" womens' basketball league by defeating
Chalmers by a decisive score
of 53-29.
Led by top scorers Louise
Heal and Marguerite Lambert,
who scored a total of 23
points, the Varsity sqaud maintained a high pace throughout
the game, cutpassing and out-
checking the Chalmers in
every play.
BARRY DRUMMOND
Drummond Is
Outstanding
Last year Thunderbird basketball coach, Jack Pomfret, made
a big gamble when he moved
Barry Drummond, a rookie who
had played forward in his one
year of Jayvee ball, into a first
string guard spot.
However, Pomfret never made
& better move. Before the season
was over Drummond was a mainstay   of   one   of   the   strongest
teams UBC had ever produced.
This season even more is ex-!
peeled of him. He is now famii-!
Jar with thc guard position and

UBC Plays
North Shore
Undefeated Varsity meet'
North Shore All-Blacks in Miller
Cup competition at Varsity Stadium Saturday at 2:30. The
Chiefs, only unbeaten team in
Miller Cup play, are in second
place behind Kats who have
one loss but have played two
more games than UBC.
In the second division, Bell-
Irving Cup play, the four UBC
teams play each other. Braves
meet Tomahawks on the Aggie
Field at 1:30 and the Redskins
and Papooses follow at 2:30.
Kats, who were officially censured for their rough play against
a Vancouver side two weeks
ago will play Meralomas at Balaclava Park. As Vrsity has two
games in hand, a win by the
'Lomns would permanently sink
the '55 Miller Cup champs.
Three, Lose Two
With all the "red-hot basketball teams stealing the glory
on the campus, the UBC ice-hockey team has been left out
in the cold recently.
In fact, when mentioning the
'Bird hockey club to various
people, the general statement
has been, "So UBC does have
a hockey team."
Well, UBC does have a hockey
team . . . and a darn good one,
at that.
Dr. Donnelly's ice-men started
the season somewhat poorly by
losing their first two games.
Training and practice have paid
off, however and they won their
last three, scoring a 2-0 shutout
against Burns in their last game
on Sunday to put them in a first
place tie with Harwood.
The pucksters have great
hopes for breaking the tie Sunday morning when they play
Harwood.
Coach   Ron   Donnelly   —   al-
t though  he doesn't  say  much—
said his team should be at the
top of the league at the end of
the season.
Dates for the annual Hamber
Cup playoffs have been tentatively set for Feb. 5 and 6. The
'Birds will make another attempt to regain the trophy,;
which has been won by the
University of Alberta for thc ■
past   two   years,   in   Edmonton.
Donnelly is taking a trip to
Edmonton at Christmas which
will give him a chance to scout
the  opposing team.

Politics have rocked eastern
campuses during the past few
days.
At Xavier University in
Quebec, president of the Student Political Association,
Tom Blanchard resigned suddenly because "I can no longer do the job with a clear conscience.''
Certain matters have been
brought to my attention," Mr.
Blanchard said, "and they
make it almost impossible for
me to act in an unbiased manner."    He did not elaborate.
At the same time the campus Social Credit party withdrew from the organization,
because president Bill Morris-
sey, who was resigning his position because "I can't afford
the time," could not find anyone to replace him at the helm.

At the University of Toronto a poll by the campus paper
Varsity disclosed that the majority of students "are ready
to fight." Most students who
answered "Yes" to the question "Would you fight if your
country went to war?" did so,
because "Canada is worth it."
One, who didn't give his
name, expressed the general
consensus of opinion when he
The Hope Of Christmas
Seeing the ugliness in their
world, the group in the Bethlehem stable might have cried,
"Look what the world has come
to!" Instead they said, "Look
what has come to the world!"

said "Canada is the greatest
democracy in the world and, if
necessary, is worth dying for.
Somebody will have to do it.
Why not me?"

At the second of a series of
Mission meetings, at the U of
T, Rev. J. R. Scott spoke to a
capacity audience on "The
Facts of Sin."
The Reverend advised students that "God is not a namby-pamby sugar daddy," and
told them to reject sin and
achieve "an intimate union
with Christ." Four members
of the audience walked up the
centre isle to accomplish this
state.

Princeton movie critic R. M.
Rehder, in his column "At the
Flicks," unwittingly contradicted Ubyssey critic Mike
Matthews when he praised the
movie "Tea and Sympathy."
"John Kerr," says Rehder,
"gives a performance that is
excellent to the last detail."
"Mr. Kerr's," says Matthews,
"dopey hero suggests, rather
than effeminacy, an affinity
for 'horse', or perhaps a perpetual hangover."
"Miss Kerr," says Rehder,
"is excellent."
"Miss Kerr," says Matthews,
"is pallid and fluttery."
The moral of this story is:
il yon don't agree with Ubyssey critics shut up or transfer
te> Princeton.
Also at Princeton, an appeal
by a student committee to allow singer Paul Robeson to
appear on campus has been
turned down by the faculty.
The students, feeling that
"Robeson's art has been suppressed," because he admits
to Communist leanings. The
administration gave no reason
for rejecting the request.
