Revolt
BULLETIN
Threat io close the University of Alabama over the race
riot was made by U. of A.
president shortly before midnight last night.
He  made   the  threat  after
Alabama   state   governor   refused   to   call   the   national
guard when requested. U. of A.
president  summoned  the  national guard after a negro girl
student was pelted with eggs
in a series of continuing race
riots.
Tuscaloosa,    Ala.    (AP)—One
thousand University of Alabama
students  rioted   for three  hours
over   the   presence   of   the   first
Negro student on their campus.
Excited    students    burned    a
cross  on  the  university  campus
and   then   about   500   marched
two   miles  to downtown   Tuscaloosa,   singing   "Dixie"   as   they
paraded.    Some   shouted    "keep
'Bania   white.  To   hell  with   Au-
thrine"—the   Negro   student.
A car occupied by Negroes
was  damaged.
University officials said that
initial leadership of the rally
came from "a few inebriated
fraternity    men."
The Negro student attended
classes Friday and Saturday
after the university lowered its
racial bars in obedience to a
federal   court   order.

Inevitable
Demonstrations of race hatred in the Southern States are
nothing new; the rest of the world has become used to hearing
of the Emmett Tills, the Scottsboro boys, the Ku Klux Klan
and the lynchings. The most recent demonstration, which took
place last Saturday on the placid, magnolia-scented campus of
the University of Alabama, is no exception.
The object of all the excitement was Autherine Lucy, the
first negro student to enter the university under the Supreme
Court's de-segration ruling.
The girl attended classes Friday; on Saturday. 1000 men
students burned a cross on the campus, damaged a car occupied
by negroes, and marched into downtown Tuscaloosa for a hate
demonstration.
No new moral can be drawn from this latest .shameful
display. It serves only to show that the younger generation
in the South are no more enlightened than their elders. Some
of us might fondly expect that Southern students, simply htr-
cause they are university students, would perhaps have brought
their thinking past the 1865 level. This of course is not the
case. The old traditions seem to have been transmitted almost
unchanged to the younger generation. The average Southern
university student is just as gallant, just as gracious, but just
as viciously bigoted as his father was before him.
The Alabama demonstration only serves to show that the
road to de-segration in the South will be a long and tortuous
one. Many more crosses will be burned in small Southern
towns before racial equality  becomes  a  reality.
But de-segration will come, eventually; demonstrations like
the Alabama incident are only cross currents in the mainstream
of world opinion. De-segration is the law of the land now; and
the law cannot be flouted forever.
Immorality On Wheels
By REV.  ROBERT F.  ROYSTER
Rector, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, La Porte, Indiana
Many who are concerned with the carnage on our highways are beginning to see that behind the fundamental causes
of traffic accidents lie real moral issues. For too long people
have only been concerned with traffic laws, and have been
unconcerned with the moral problems which rise to those laws.
We do not like to be told we are immoral, and our favorite
way o£ avoiding it is to attempt to take "right-and-wrongness"'
out of the picture. By such specious reasoning we have arrived
as a nation of drivers, at the conclusion that behavior behind
the wheel is a legal matter, not a moral one. When careless
reckless, thoughtless, selfish driving begins to be known as sin,
we will all be safer.
You see, sin is still a nasty little word. Even though our
modern era tried laughing at it, it wouldn't go away; the era
just before had tried to reason it out of existence, with like
success. Many a person is willing to be a law violator who
would resent being publicly recognized as a gross and unrepentant sinner. In spite of our veneer of amorality, most of us
thoroughly detest real wickedness. It is time we faced the fact
that most traffic accidents are simply the normal consequence
of wilful, wicked acts. Acts that are habits of conscience.
It is not enough to advertise and propagandize against dangerous and illegal driving practices: sin has .seldom been noticeably affected this way. The be:;t answer to the problem is to
recover our moral sense on the highway. For when we begin
to see much modern vehicle operation moral degredation, we
can restore safety to our highways as a by-product of restoring
morality in our drivers.
Honor System, Adlai
Find Place At Reed
/<<
C;-.
(Pubster Larry Rotenberg,
who in January travelled to
Reed College in Portland, Oregon, on a UN Club discussion
exchange, came back impressed. Here, he describes Portland's academic Olympus,
whrch is entirely devoted to
the Liberal arts, and isn't
ashamed of it.—Ed.)
UBC students who spent last
weekend in Portland discussing
the Middle East Crisis were
very much impressed with the
educational system at Reed College.
The most striking point was
the attitude of the students towards their studies. At our
university, for instance, one
simply does not talk about
school work out of class. Reed
students, however, live their
work and discuss it in every
conceivable place.
But perhaps the most unusual, for us, aspect of the
Reed Way is the "honour principle." This simply means that
there is no discipline, as we
know it, down at Reed.
Examinations are not supervised, and one can take them
home if he wishes to do so.
As a matter of fact, several
Reed students who were showing the Canadians around,
simply took their exam papers
home with them and were
going to do them the next day.
Tempting as such a situation
might seem to us, Reedites
insisted that hardly any cheating has ever been discovered.
Only once in the last two
years has this aspect of the
honour principle been violated,
and this was found out only
when   the   conscience-stricken
student gave himself up.
The honour principle is
brought into many other points
of application. Unlike the case
in prohibition UBC, liquor is
allowed on the Reed campus,
as long as suitable moderation is exercised. The exact
point of the moderation is a
matter for the student himself
to decide, under the honour
principle, of course.
Just lilce our own vile rag.
"Quest" enloys complete freedom of expression, although
careful perusal of a sample
copy did not reveal nearly the
same degree of light material.
Reed Student Council en-
Joys much more autonomy than
our own, having a voice in the
actual administration of the
college. This Includes matters
concerning the curriculum, and
the administration and expulsion of students.
The Canadians were particularly Impressed with Reed's
conference method of instruction. This consists in having
classes of not more than a
dozen, and frequently less than
half a dozen students, who
simply bring out all points
in a particular subject by discussion, in which the instructor is merely a capable chairman.
Such a program is naturally
very expensive and the result
is that Reedites pay $750 a
year for tuition alone. Considering, however, that Reed is a
private institution which receives no government subsidy
at all, the figure is not really
as high as it may seem.
This   same   lack   of   govern
ment subsidization, on the
other hand, has allowed Reed
to maintain its fierce independence, even during Senator Mc-^
Carthy's heyday. Reed refused
to ban books or fire professors
for political reasons, and therefore is still considered to be a
den of radicals.
Certainly Reed students are
extremely liberal. A Republican would hardly feel comfort- ^
able there, for most of the stu-
dents are liberal Democrats.
In fact one fellow pointed out
to me a wild-looking bearded
young man and told me with
pride that this was the only
anarchist on the campus.
The religious views of Reed -
students are also very conventional. I was told that 40 per
cent of the students are free
thinkers. Religious or racial
discrimination simply does not
exist and neither do Greek
Letter Societies.
Students have the perpetual |
morning-after look, dressing in
an informal manner, bordering on the sloppy. Girls, in particular, do their best not to
distract males from their academic pursuits by not wearing
lipstick or any kind of makeup, and frequently not combing their hair. As a result the %
few Canadian girls who went
down enjoyed a smashing success.
In conclusion I should like to
point out that Reed, with an
enrolment of 650 students has
the highest proportion of
Rhodes scholars in the United t
States.

The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Campus.
Dear Sir:
As you are doubtless aware,
Dr. H. F. Woodhouse, the
Principal of Anglican Theological Colbge, is lecturing on
Tuesdays and Thursdays at
2:30 p.m. in Arts 103 on the
"Early History of Christian
Belief's." Evidently this sounds
like a formidable topic for
otherwise how explain the
absurdly small number of
people who attend.
Dr. Woodhouse is giving
these lectures on behalf of the
President's Committee on Spiritual Values. They arc not in
the least formidable. Concerned as they arc with Christian belief's they ought to be
of importance to every professing Christian, every student of
ideas, in fact to every interested person. 1 cannot for the life
of me believe that the few
people who do attend are the
only ones able to do so. All
those who can, please do come.
Yoh will find these lectures
extremely  worthwhile.
Yours truly,
G. H. S. Mills,
Gen. Sec. of S.C.M.

Red  Hot  Issues
UTTER NO EXCUSE-
ASH CANS PROVIDED
By PAT RUSSELL
i Frustrated by a notorious lack
I -4>f issues in this year's Alma
Mater Elections, candidates have
spent most of their time stressing individual qualifications of
^ experience and ability should
a red-hot controversy rage the
campus during their term of office.
Major issue born of this election is what to do with an excess
population. Are we to obey the
Artsmen's wishes for a rep-by-
pop council? Should any new
aw members be added to the Ivory
Tower (or is this term obsolete
since Monday'j speches?) Will
the College of Education students promote a parking and
eating problem?
In other words, Does Council
need an over-haul?
Stanley Beck, present Editor-
IB In-Chief of the Ubyssey, says
no. "Thirteen is about the right
number to work with," he said
Monday. "Anything larger
would spend more time debating
and accomplish less."
COUNCILLORS AT FAULT
^ Don Jabour felt that the main
Overhauling to be done was an
alteration of the insular chamber. "If councillors brought their
ideas to the attention of the public, there would be no need
of more members to represent
the students."
Ron   Longstaffe,   this   year's
0 vice-president, held that a more
efficient planning of the duties
Of AMS office staff would take
many of the menial tasks off
the shoulders of councillors
leaving them free to give more
time to bigger student affairs.
"At present," Longstaffe stat-
ed, "the load is on too few people. If the office were to do the
"bullwork" of the coordinator's
job, there would  be one more
,% councillor to represent the students full time."
He felt that perhaps in the
future, more members ought to
be elected, but "the time is not
now."
** Other candidates on the first
slate were  of  the  opinion  that
* the possibility of greater representation should be considered,
but that the time was not yet
ripe even with the added 1000
students.
USC COMMENTS
Surprisingly enough, in a poll
Of candidates, USC induced the
most comment. All three candidates for President were strongly in favor of giving the Undergraduate Societies Council more
••jjrosponsible jobs on campus.
Beck asked that the individual
societies be encouraged to become "re-juvenated and truly
responsible and representative
bodies." He agreed with opponent Jabour that Council's best
contact with the student body
is through the USC.
H UNDERGRADS DOOMED
No matter who is elected, un-
dergrad societies appear doomed
to hold monthly meetings, each
duly honored with a councillor's
presence. This is the answer to
the problem of letting students
know what's happening to our
money, according to the nominees.
Longstaffe   mentioned   that
USC   was   doing   an   excellent
Job   of   the   Parking   Investiga-
^   tion Report. "I think we should
re-evaluate USC's position, and
allocate new and important jobs
to the group," he said.
The National Federation of
Canadian University Students,
well battered though it is, managed to raise a few comments
among prospective councillors.
NFCUS SHOULD STAY
Stan Beck gave a firm "yes"
in reply to the question "should
UBC stay a member of NFCUS?"
"As long as the organization is
doing some good, I think we
should stay in."
Jabour thought otherwise. The
Pep Club President said "I don't
see why Canadian University
students should be united just
for the sake of being united.
The return we are getting by
being a member seems far too
small for the $3000 a year we
pay."
Longstaffe shared Don's opinion, adding that certain faculties
of NFCUS should be retained
even if we give up the ghost.
"These are the cultural aspects,
such as art contests," he explained.
Robin Scott, candidate for
USC chairman, stated that UBC
should stay a member "because
it is much easier to re-build an
already existing organization
than to start fresh."
NFCUS NEBULOUS
Rival Sholto Hebenton
thought that while a national federation was desirable,
NFCUS in its present form appears "too nebulous, and accomplishes too little." Heb suggested UBC replace NFCUS with
a new organization along the
lines of PSPA.
Secretarial candidate, V a 1
Haig-Brown, presently serving
on the NFCUS investigating
committee agreed that NFCUS
is not serving its purpose. She
felt that alternatives were a "revision of its present structure,
withdrawal, or formation of another Jess formal organization."
Two absolutely opposing views
are held by the other two candidates for secretary. Peggy An-
dreen said flatly, "get out!" She
modified her view slightly to
suggest that NFCUS would have
to improve vastly, and gain
an adequate administration before it would serve a purpose.
DEFINITE STEPS
Betty Anne Thompson felt
that "next year's council should
take definite steps to carry on
the work and implement the
recommendations of the UBC,
NFCUS Investigations Committee,"
It is predicted that by 1985,
our campus will be smothered
by an impenetrable layer—
not smog, fog or grog—but
wastepaper!
The Buildings and Grounds
Department of this University
spends at least $3000 yearly
for the removal of this
thoughtless litter.One man is
employed solely for this purpose, and he is out-thrown
every time.
The department is soon to
provide several extra waste-
paper baskets similar in style
to those on downtown streets.
They will be strategically-placed about the grounds.

Betty-Anne (Buggs) Thompson
stressed that the secretary was
"too busy with necessary duties
to take a leading stand on council," but added that she must
still understand all that happens
at  meetings.

Undergrduate Societies. Sholto

Student To Sing
By BARBARA SCHWENK
Proving that there's more to the vocal chords than mere
anatomy will be third year medical student Ron  Hancock
when he features in a recital at the Vancouver Art Gallery
Wednesday night. *	
which   specializes   in   bringing
Accompanied by pianist Norma Abernethy, Mr. Hancock—
who spends his non-vociferous
moments in pursuit of an M.D.
—will present a widely varied
program including Spirituals,
Lieder, and selections from Mozart,  Handel and Schubert.
Mr. Hancock's vocal career
began in Penticton High School,
where his Crosby-type croon-
ings were the sensation of the
Friday afternoon assemblies.
Since coming to UBC, his voice
has developed into a rich bass
baritone which has earned him
parts in three Mussoc shows
including a lead in the 1953
production of "Fire-fly."
He has also gained considerable attention in circles outside
UBC with his appearances on
both radio and TV.
Mr. Hancock has studied voice
under Miss Beth Wilson for the
past three and a half years, but
although he treats his singing
seriously, he does not intend to
make a full-time career out of it.
"It is more of an avocation .than
anything," he says. Singing gives
me great satisfaction but I still
plan to practice medicine when
I graduate."
This versatile future Medic
enjoys music of all sorts, from
Beethoven to Brubeck, and is
equally at home singing Oratorio or musical comedy.
His recital is sponsored by the
Vancouver Philharmonic Society
out new Vancouver artists.
The program  begins  at  8:30
p.m.  Tickets  may  be obtained
at Modern Music or at the Art-
Gallery.

LIBERALS
Today the Liberal Party is the only true national party
on the political scene. No other party can make this claim. The
Liberals are either the government or the opposition in nine
of the ten Canadian provinces.
Liberals are not doctrinaire free enterprisers as the Conservatives, doctrinaire socialists as the CGFers, or weird monetary reformers as the Social Crediters. The Liberal Party believes in a mixed enterprise system where there is a definite
place for both private and government ownership—a "co-ownership program."
The Liberal Party belives that human rights are just as
important as property rights, for that reason Liberals stand
for sufficient planning by the state to ensure Social Security,
full employment and measures to provide against adversity by
old age, ill health, unemployment, and poverty. Liberals believe with a passionate faith that the end of all political and
economic action is not the perfecting or perpetuation of this
or that system or organization, but that individual men and
women may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.
Liberals favor policies which regard the welfare of all
Canadians. The Liberal party, unlike some of the clearly sectional protest parties of Western Canada, believes in a tolerant
attitude of goodwill towards all measures designed to increase
human welfare and a readiness to compare compose differences
for ensuring sound and permanent progress. The Liberal Partji
believes in Canadian unity. Such is the stand of the Liberal
Party—federally, provincially, and campus-wide.
This year elect a majority Liberal Government in the Mock
Parliament elections. The Liberals have presented the only
bill to pass through Mock Parliament this year. The vote was
28 to eight. The Campus Liberal Club is the only party which
has shown its ability to govern.
Anti-Discrimination Brochures
Mailed To Future Frat Men
Brochures outlining campus anti-discrimination committees are being mailed out to spring fraternity rushees.
Inter Fraternity Council discrimination committee
chairman Sam Huberman announced the move at AMS
discrimination  watchdog  committee  meeting  Wednesday.
IFC mailed out the brochures at the request of Undergraduate Societies Chairman Dave Hemphill's watchdog
committee. They were to have been included in the rushing booklets but were not ready at the time. About 100
copies have been sent out.
Purpose of the brochures is to acquaint rushees with
facilities established to handle cases of discrimination.
The brochure lists the IFC and Pan-Hell discrimination
committees, the AMS watchdog commitee and the Civil
Liberties Union.

Beat
By   AL   FORREST
I was heckling the Attorney General of British Columbia. It used to be my favorite  sport.
He finished talking. I asked him a question. He answered it. A-G Robert Bonner
then expressed his amazement that a young man took
such an active interest in politics. I told him I was a UBC
student. A painful admission.
I explained our active political program and the annual
political election. He became
interested. He smiled.
"How does Social Credit
make out?" he asked. I told
him. He frowned.
The important thing is that
high up politician! tet great
significance in what seems
like a trivial election—a joust
strictly for the sadistic pleasure of bickering political
clubs. The Mock Parliament
election Wednesday is very
important.
In discussions with B.C.
Liberal leader Art Laing and
B.C. CCF head Arnold Webster the annual election is always mentioned and each
leader is vitally interested in
how the future leaders of B.C.
are feeling politically.
Thrilling wire from the
Prime Minister of Canada
only serves to emphasize the
interest taken in the elections
not only here but as far east
as  Ottawa.
I was in Toronto. It was
Christmas, 1954. I visited the
provincial legislature — that
Conservative castle (some 82
of 90 seats at that time.)
I talked with members of
the legislature. All parties.
Same deal. All were extremely concerned at their party's
progress among Canadian
youth.
I was in bed. I dreamed that
more than 80 per cent of the
student body voted on their
political ballots. I was glad.
Besides you don't want that
party to win, do you?
Extra ballots, anyone?

SOCIAL CREDIT
Social Crediters believe that the only way in which people^
can obtain the results they desire is through policies which are
based upon principles which are sound, just and true.
We believe that there are principles which time and circumstances do not change and we must formulate policies
based on these principles.
Basically, Social Credit policies are fourfold:
1. Relief in the individual has certain rights, separate,
distinct and different from any other. Governments as servants of the people must legislate according to the will of the
majority, but their legislation must also recognize the rights
of the individual.
2. The major function of any government is to bring to
people the results which they want in the management of their
affairs. We oppose, as undemocratic, the granting of special
privleges to pressure groups which are not in the best interests
of the people.
3. We believe in security with freedom. One without the
other is just a hollow mockery. There is no happiness in security if you have become a slave, if you have lost your right
to choose, or refuse, the path before you.
4. Social Crediters believe that which' is physically possible and desirable can and must be made financially possible.
We believe that whenever goods and services are produced
there should be brought into existence sufficient purchasing
power or medium of exchange, to at all times deliver these
goods and services to the people. This is the solemn duty of
government.
The first three of these policies can be put into practice on a provincial level, whereas the fourth is within the
sphere of the federal government. In British Columbia under
a Social Credit government the first three have been implemented.
On Wednesday you will have the opportunity to exercise
your vote for the party of your choice in the Official Spring
Mock Parliament. On the basis of the good government which
this province has experienced during the last three and a half-
years we urge you to vote SOCIAL CREDIT. In this short
period of time, this government has implemented the following
legislation:
1. Have launched the largest highway program this year
in the history of all the provinces.
2. Are extending the PGE railway, both north to the
Peace River, and south to Vancouver, so that for the first time
in over 30 years the railway is showing a profit.
3. Have placed hospital insurance on a workable basis,
so that, whereas the average family paid $39 per year in premiums before,  that  same  family   now   pays  about  $15.
4. Have started construction on the long-awaited Marpole
bridge at a cost of $9,000,000. with little or no help from the
Federal Government.
5. Extended a capital grant of $10,000,000,000 to this
university. Largest capital grant in 35 years.
These, and many more achievements are the result of
electing an efficient and honest administration in Victoria.
An administration which is bent on carrying out the wishes
of the majority and enacting necessary legislation that has
been left undone for many years.
If you are pleased with the action taken by your Social
Credit Government in Victoria, we urge you to make your approval known by a vote of confidence in Social Credit Govern-1*
ment and policies in Wednesday's election.

Homer Stevens, secretary of
the Fisherman's Union, Friday
blasted the growing tie-in between the pulp and paper industry and the B.C. Electric.
Stevens spoke under the sponsorship of the L.P.P. Club, on the
subject,   "Salmon   and   Power."
"How far are we going to let
the B.C. Electric be the dominating influence in the economic
life of B.C.°" he asked,

recommended public ownership
of the B. C. Electric, and the
development of damsites further
away from Vancouver than the
Fraser Valley, so  that  the  Sal
mon Fisheries could be protected.
Stevens said that dam-; further in the interior thin the
: Fraser Valley would ens' up to
S.33 million more. "This would
up the cost of electrici'.y ono-
[ thirtieth of a cent per Kilowatt,"
he stated.
Stevens protested '.hat scientists are very hard put to find
[ a solution to the problem of

,' States combined are spending
| $600,000 yearly on salmon re-

CCF.
The Cooperative Commonwealth Federation was formed
in 1933 when the several socialist parties in Canada decided
that because their goals were common to them all, they should
work towards their common goals cooperatively.
The goal of the CCF is thatfexerted   continual ure
all man's activity and thought
should be directed first and foremost towards achieving the most
essential and satisfying needs
and conditions for all the peoples
of Canada.
Defenders of free enterprise
parties will contend that they
too strive for the above conditions: it is quite evident, however, that the primary aim of
free enterprise is profit—reasonable or exorbitant. It follows
therefore that satisfaction of human needs and desires, although
inseparable from the free enterprise profit motive—actually
occupies a secondary position
as motivation for economic activity. In many industries even
now maximum satisfaction of
the people's needs is an incidental by-product.
The CCF feels that only when
economic activity is of a generally socialized or nationalized
nature, can the satisfaction of
human needs and desires become the significant motivating
factor. Because CCF is dedicated to improving the social
and economic lot of every individual in Canada, it must strive
for the establishment of an economic and social society that
will make its aims possible.
In Ottawa and in provincial
legislatures CCF members have
on
the government to have the
penal Institutions, conditions
and policies brought up to a
more   advanced   level,
CCF pressure and persistence
in the matter of a national health
scheme may soon be rewarded
if the present Federal Government goes through with its plans
for such a scheme.
The CCF oppostion in B.C. deplores the Socred abuses of
B.C.'s timber resources. It is
time that timber was removed
from politics and that rights to
timberlands be held in the name
of B.C. under a scheme that
would perpetuate the industry.
The present grain marketing
policies are a failure to the farmer and to the potential markets in hungry Europe and Asia.
j One    billion    hungry    humans
j should be fed and Canada's far-
' mers  should   be paid—even   at
a cost to the government.

MOCK PARLIAMENT
ELECTED WEDNESDAY
Campus political parties
are campaigning today to outdo the other four parties. Students get the last word, however, when ballots listing the
five political parties are handed out with AMS election ballots Wednesday.
Winning party forms the
government in a 50 seat house.
The evening session is open
to the general public and is
usually held in Brock lounge.
Liberals have won the election the past two years but
other parties are all expecting
to overhaul the Whigs Wednesday.
"There can be no such thing : elections.
as a material value," proclaimed genial cynic Dr. Barnett Sav-
ery rebutting Rabbi Jacob Friedman in panel discussion "Is Materialism Becoming the New Religion" Friday noon.
arguevifnllSeotdig
Slashing Rabbi Friedman's argument—that materialism has
invaded the religious spirit and
possessed us of an impatient desire to attain temporary results
rather than eternal verities—
to intellectual ribbons, Dr. Sa-
very stated that we to-day are
neither better nor worse than
other ages.
Impatience is a virtue, said
Dr. Savory. If problems are not
solved here and now they may
may never be solved.
In cryptic tones, he revealed
the philosophical secret that, as
ill sensations are mental and
thu* ultimately spiritual, it is
impossible to weigh material
value-; against   the  spirit.
Ml is not Ihe object of worship but the attitude toward it
that makes a religion," Dr. Savory continued.
And because our attitudes
change from age to age, it is un-
nieauingful to ask what values
ought to be held eternally sacred.
'•Someday man may have attained sufficient wisdom to proclaim certain things of more
worth than others," Dr. Sayery
concluded, "To-day however, didactic statements about the nature of such abstract values
as The Good are nothing but
sheer dogma."
Party presidents are Darrell
Anderson, Liberals; Bill Mar-
chak. CCF; Phil Govan, Conservatives; Mel Smith, Social Credit; and Jim MacFarlan, LPP,
Elections for the annual Mock
Parliament session — usually
staged in the Brock Lounge—
are held every year in connection with the election for
AMS president. Fifty parliamentary seals are divided according
to the percentage of votes gained.
L. P. P
The problems, domestic and
international, which confront
Canada today can only be
solved in the interests of our
nation through the implementation of a new national policy.
The Labor Progressive Party
meets his challenge with the
following program which is
aimed al Canadian development in a world at peace.
1. Process more of our natural resources in Canada. Put
an end to the policy of US
control over Canadian resources.
2. Build an all-Canadian na-
tural  gas pipeline.
3. Implement a $10,000,000
national scholarship program.
4. Enact a Bill of Rights to
guarantee civil rights to all
Canadians.
5.' Increase Old Age Pensions and enact a National
Health Plan.
6. Grant more aid to the
provinces by a new federal
provincial   tax   agreement.
7. Solve the problem of agricultural surpluses through
trade with all countries.
8. Recognize the People's
Republic of China.
9. Call for a world disarmament conference and ban all
Atom and Hydrogen bombs.
Vote for a new national
policy! Elect an LPP government to Mock  Parliament.

CONSERVATIVE
Before asking any person to vote Conservative I think it
is only fair that we should describe to him some of the philosophy, principles, and policy of the party. This in a very limited
space is what I will attempt to do.
The Conservative does not be-,
lieve that the power of politics ernment  has been   caught  sell-
to put things right in this world  ing   arms   to   both   Egypt   and
is  unlimited.   Man,   we  believe Israeli The official Conservative
is an imperfect being with a
streak of evil as well as good in
his nature. While other political
parties expound on their particular Utopias the Conservatives
can only offer something quite
modestly better than the present.
A man who says that he wishes
to conserve is often accused of
being specially interested in conserving something of his own.
It is true that apart from all
question of distribution and of
separable interest, what each
generation has to conserve is im-
mensley more valuable both to
society and to each individual
member of it than what any
one generation can hope to
create. However, unlike many
of our political opponents the
last thing which Conservatives
believe is that we have a monopoly of truth. We do not even!
claim a monopoly of conserva-|
i tism. j
But what of Canada in 1956.
what   would   the   Conservatives
do if they  were in  power.  For
one we would end the shameful
; CBC and TCA monopolies. The ',
i time for sheltered  industries in
j these  fields  is  long  since  past.
j We would bring down an immi-
' gration policy that is clear and j
! definite. A bill of rights such as \
that   proposed   by   Mr.   Diefen-
baker    would    be    introduced.
Wheat marketing would be re- j
organized   to   pay   the   farmer i
for his grain as it became avail- j
able. i
i
We feel that many of the Liberal !
mistakes are due to sheer com-1
placency  and  inertia.   Everyone
is familiar with the Middle East
arms scandal in which the gov-
opposition has done good work.
The government has even
adopted a Conservative private
members bill of equal pay for
equal work. The Conservative
party is the only Canadian national party other than the Liberals and the only one that can
wrest control of the federal government from t h e Liberal
stranglehold. This we believe we
can do and are going to do.
A recent Gallup poll shows that
if an an election were held
tomorrow t h e Conservatives
would win between 70 and 90
seats. To do this, however, we
need your support. If you feel
that you can agree with the principles and policies outlined abov*
then vote Conservative tomorrow. We will do our best to
warrant   your  confidence.

For the second year in succession a UBC student has. won

BUI McLuckie, 22 and • native Vancouverlte, has maintained UBC's supremacy this year
with   his   abstract   oil-painting
"Visual Melody."
The painting took four hours
during a holiday in Banff. "It

it turned into its present shape."
An U.N. and Liberal Club
member, Bill does not think he'll
become a professional artist.
"There's not enough money in
it and its too restricted," he said.
"You must paint what the public wants—or starve."
McLuckie, Arts 3, hopes to
transfer to the Law Faculty next
year. He has been painting "in
just about every kind of medium," since he was 12. His father, a UBC graduate, painted
the UBC crest that now hangs
in the Administration building.
Bill, who describes himself as
"a horizontal athlete or one
who spends all his time lying
down," was on the Junior UBC
Rowing team in 1952. He also
plays football and enjoys skiing, swimming, and reading "Just
about any kind of book."
His secondary hobby, however,
is photography. Because of this
he prefers abstract to representative or pictorial art. "With photography and commercial art
so popular," he explained, "an
artist has a fine opportunity to
stick with pure, abstract art
and thus appeal to people."
Last year, Heather Spears,
Arts 3, won first place with her
"Nude." This despite the stiff
competition provided by artists
from the 20 other Canadian
Universities participating.
Bill's painting, together with
the other NFCUS art winners,
is on view in the Library's
Reserve Book Room corridor until Wednesday. The exhibition,
an annual NFCUS sponsored
event, will then go on to the
University of Saskatchewan for
a week.

Decides   Winner
By BRUCE ALLARDYCE
UBC   swim   team   defeated   Western   Washington   44-36
Saturday at Crystal Pool, in a thrilling meet which was not
decided until the final event.
Varsity's 400-yard freestyle relay team, composed of Bob Bag-
shaw, Denis Fieldwalker, Peter
Hanley, and Jack Scantland
swept to victory in the final
event of the evening to clinch
the win for UBC.
Captain Doug Kilburn back-
paddled his way to victory in
the 200 yard backstroke, and
Gerry Van Tets captured first
place in the 200 yard breast-
stroke. Ken Doolan and Dan
Frances finished one-two in the
diving events with 1953 conference champ Doolan getting
the nod over Frances, who was
top man in '55.
WIN  IN   DISTANCES
Varsity swimmers lost out in
the freestyle sprints, over 50
and 100 yards, but fared much
better in the distances.
Bob Bagshaw swam two magnificent races in the 220 and
440 freestyle events, holding on
in both races to win over Star-
dick, a strong swimmer from
Western who previously swam
for the Washington Huskies.
UBC's 300 yard medley relay team, with Kilburn, Van
Tets, and Fieldwalker, took
first place; but in the 200 yard
event Kilburn and Brown ran
into bad luck and were disqualified with the Western
team that finished third declared the winners.

of McLeod.
UBC   FIFTH
The two wins give league-
leading Lutherans an impressive
record of 11 wins in 12 Evergreen Conference games. The
fifth place Birds' record now
stands at five wins as against
eight losses which are subject
to change after last night's game
at College of the Puget Sound.
In the Friday game with PLC,
the Birds were never in the
running as they let the Lutes
roll up a quick 17-2 lead in
the first seven minutes and finally replied to the PLC attack
with their first field goal of
the game well on in the second
quarter.
Saturday, UBC showed an
improved attack although McLeod and Ed Wilde were the
only Birds to score more than
four points. Late in the third
quarter the Thunderbirds trailed the Lutes by only a 40-34
count. McLeod picked up 31
points to go with his 21 the
night before while guard Ed
Wilde scored 12.

took two contests from Western
Washington, 79-55 and 83-73, to

HBC Sportswear. Third Floor What's news at Inco?
ACTUAL SIZE
These are pellets of iron ore from
Inco's new plant at Copper Cliff
This ore contains over 65% iron and less than 2% silica. This is higher
in grade than any iron ore now produced in quantity in North America.
This is the $19 million plant which, with planned
enlargements, will eventually produce about 1 million tons
of iron ore a year. The present unit will treat 1000 tons of
pyrrhotite concentrates daily.

&MM.'^-!-
Inco's process for the recovery of iron ore took years
of laboratory and pilot plant studies. It opens the way for
increased recovery of other elements from the complex
Sudburv ores when economically' feasible.

This latest major result of Inco's process research is one of
a series of planned, long-range developments by which its ore
treatment processes are being revolutionized. It is a further step
toward one ol Inco's primary objectives—the maximum utilization
of its ores.
