Scott looks
for gift of
$2 million
Student treasurer Malcolm
Scott is looking for a $2 million
"gift toward construction costs
of the new Student Union building.
Scott, head of a committee
looking into possible ways of
„raising money for the building
said Wednesday:
"We are trying to obtain out-
-right gifts from the federal, government, the provincial govern-^
-ment, and from the alumni and
^general public."
Student council had originally
.planned on an $800,000 student
building, but decided to seek
.out an additional.$2 million for
the building after planning consultant P o rter Butts said
$800,000 would hardly provide
adequate food facilities.
Scott said he does not believe
the students should be forced
to pay the extra $2 million.
-Students have already been assessed enough, he said. Scott was
supported in his stand by Assistant Treasurer Bernie Papke.
"There is no precedent for
such a gift, except the government of Alberta's gift to its university," Scott admitted. "However, we will press the B.C. government for such a gift."
Scott added, that if the attempts to gain gifts are unsuccessful, the Alma Mater Society
. would be forced to apply for
low interest loans from the federal government.
Papke said the common block
, residences were built from such
a low cost loan. He described
the student union building as
the commuting students common block.

SCARFACE SHARZER prepares to notch his gun after shooting down three innocent Artsmen in Brock Lounge in drastic
attempt to preserve his illicit government over the Arts US
by drawing a crowd for the Arts dance, the St. Valentine's
Day, Massacre Friday. Stunt was pure publicity. But, were
the bullets really blanks?
Commie spokesman
speaks - not atU of W
SEATTLE (UPS) — Gus Hall,
former secretary, now "spokesman" for the United States
Communist Party, finally got a
chance to speak — not at the
University of Washington, but
at a downtown press conference.
(Hall had been invited to
speak at the University by a
student group called the Students for Political Education.
The request was turned down
by the University after it was
reviewed by the Faculty-Student Advisory Committee on
Political Speakers.)
In a hotel room quiz-down
before a battery of local reporters, Hall labeled the cancellation of his proposed visit
a "backward step," reducing
civil liberties and intellectual
freedom in Washington state.
He said the issue is not communism or anti-communism; the
real issue is whether the people
of Washington are going to be
allowed to hear democratic discussion and debate.
"The decision (concerning
who can speak) is made by a
small, narrow-minded, bigoted,
pro-war, pro-fascist clique," said
Hall in one of his more searing
Hall disassociated himself and
his group from the Communist
Party of the Soviet Union (or
any other Communist party outside America) and proceeded to
verbalize his vision of a socialized and eventually communized
America which would retain its
traditional rights and values.
The UJ3., he said, because of
its long democratic background,
will be able to arrive at socialism in the "most peaceful, least
painful" way, very probably by
parliamentary means.
He followed party lines in
claiming socialism cannot be
"imported or exported," but
must grow up from within a
country. He estimated that there
were at least 10,000 communists
in America at present time, that
there was growing influence and
interest in the U.S. Communist
Party and that if the party were
legalized, Americans would be
surprised at the number of votes
communist candidates could
However, he re-emphasized
that it was not communists, but
"right-wing fascists" who presently constituted the "dangerous
element" in American society.

University official said Monday.
He also said the University
Board of Governors has ruled
that the late registration penalty be increased from $20 to
$25 with an additional $5 for
every extra day the student is
late registering.
"Late registration disrupts
classes and causes considerable
inconvenience to faculty members," Geoffrey Da vies, secretary to the Board, said.

Scott polled 1,692 votes to
Matheson's 1,549. Shepard got
1,688 to Glenn's 1,569. Total
vote was 3,264.
Scott said one of his major
projects will be to raise more
money for the Student Union
Building. He said this might be
done by asking the administration to allow the Society to borrow for a period greater than
eight years, as is the case at
present, and by going to the
alumni for money, possibly on
a match-the-student contribution
Matheson attributed his loss
to the sag in his campaign during its last few days.
He said he planned to stay
active in campus politics. "I'd
kind of like to serve on the
finance committee next year,"
he  said.
Shepard won only five out of
the fourteen polls. A heavy
majority in the polls in the Engineering building and Brock
South made the difference.
Engineers voted 332 for
Shepard, a second year Engineer, and 20 for Glenn.
Shepard said afterward that
he had "enjoyed" the campaign.
He expressed anticipation of
a successful year.
"We should have no trouble
maintaining student autonomy."
Shepard said he would like
to see more action on student
"Specific action is needed on
the new Student Union Building. Hiring Porter Butts was a
good start and his recommendations should be followed."
He said that NFCUS should
be made a stronger body, "possibly through additional grants."
He said he would like to have
seen eligibility rules in force
for this election.
Glenn, incumbent second vice-
president, had attributed his
loss to one thing: "Engineers."
"Peter will do a very competent job. I wish both him and
president-elect Doug Stewart the
best of luck in the coming year,"
he said.

Letters to the Editor
Empty vessels
It seems that people are spending less and less time studying and more and more time raising hell with other faculties.
With exams approaching, yet.
We're not sure what the members of these various faculties are trying to prove. They probably don't know themselves.
But it would seem to be a reasonable assumption that they're
attempting to demonstrate that their group, on the whole, contains better men than tine other groups.
Not that kidnapping other students or chaining people to
posts like a buch of six-year-olds playing cowboy does prove it.
However, we're not really concerned about these juvenile
actions, even though they seem, to be a waste of time. On the
whole, these stunts don't do anyone any harm, and they don't
reflect adversely on the university.
But we would like to offer a suggestion. Instead of fooling
around like this, why not do something that does prove your
faculty to be better than the next, and, at the same time, is a
credit to the university?
We're talking about giving blood. If your faculty tops the
blood drive it seemsi to us you will have proved your point.
We would like to make a final observation. We know that
the Frosh and Engineers, the two faculties which are making
the most noise around here, are way behind the Foresters.
The woodsmen, who don't do much talking, seem to-do quite
a bit of acting, in a quiet way.
Looks like the old saying about the empty vessels making
the most noise is true, at least around here.
However, you can do something about it. It doesn't hurt,
and it does a lot of good.
Bleed, boy, bleed, at the Armory, not on the university
building floors. I.C.
Arts sharz
Mike Sharzer, Arts president, has thrown his journalistic,
legislative hat into the ring with a defense of the present system of what he calls a "disunified (sic) irresponsible body"
in the latest edition of The Artisan.
Mr. Sharzer says council disunity was between the "undergraduate society presidents as a whole and the executive."
That is just not so. Few, if any, council issues have caused
the executive to vote one way and the "undergraduate society
presidents as a whole" to vote another. A simple check on the
council minutes will show; anyone that.
Few have claimed "sectionalism" on the part of the under-
grad presidents, least of all the executive. Some of the under-
grad presidents have stated they are interested only in what
pertains to their own faculty. They are self-admitted section-
alists, and no one has yet critcized them for it.
We would agree that the harmful disunity in the council
has been among the executive. But this has not hindered the
council workings until one section of the undergrad presidents
has taken one side and the other group taken up with the opposition. The split, Mr. Sharzer, has been vertical rather than
horizontal, as you say.
One of the greatest faults with council this year has been
the political immaturity of many of the undergrad presidents.
This is not a criticism, but rather an observation.
Mr. Sharzer, you cannot alibi for not being prepared to
make a decision by the oft-heard cry "I don't know anything
about it."
Asa Tsouncillor, it is your responsibility, and the responsibility of eyery other councillor, to know what is going on.
If you don't, you should damn well take the time to find
Little regard for life
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir.
I would like to congratulate
Dean Roller for not only taking an interest in the political
developments on campus, but
also realizing and pointing out
that although the members of
the former Sopron Division
may be anti-communist, there
is not necessarily any connection between them and the
fascist activities that are taking place here. This is true and
should be remembered.
However, the Dean continues
to say, "You may be sure that
no member of the Sopron Division would take part in any
activity that would restrict the
peaceful development of this,
country." This statement is not
true,and it leads me from one
conclusion to a second.
The first is that perhaps
Dean Roller is not aware that
Geza Benko was a member of
the former Sopron Division.
This, I think, is unlikely since
Benko concludes his letters to
the editor: Geza Benko, Graduate, Sopron Division of Forestry Faculty.
The second possibility is that
Dean Roller considers Benko
and company's activity as
activity that will not restrict
the peaceful development of
this country.
The activity of the organization which Benko heads certainly is a threat to the peaceful development of Canada. To
illustrate this I will discuss a
few statements from Benko's
letter, of Feb. 2, to the editor.
"There is not time to bicker
and argue. The communists are
working day and night all
around the world to bury you
and me. If we fight we might
live. If we wait they will surely
bury us."
I helieve Benko is urging
Canadians, as his statements
imply, to take up arms against
communists all over the world.
Today these arms are nuclear
arms and a nuclear war will
certainly "restrict the peaceful
development of this country."
I feel that Benko or any person who defends Benko's position must have not only very •
little regard for human liberties, but also very little regard
for human lives.

One man's opinion
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
It gives me great pleasure on
reading the results of the political elections on campus to
see that 101 people had the
courage to vote for the only
truly democratic party in Canada today.
The Communist party is the
only party that believes in
peace and co-operation on the
international scale; the only
party that advocates complete
disarmament, the only party
with the true interests of the
working class close to its heart.
On the other hand, the Social Credit and Conservative
parties are arrogant right wing
militarists struggling to preserve a • class structure based
on jack boots, atomic weapons
and fear. For the good of the
nation their power  should be
stripped from them and given
back to the people.
On the other hand the Liberal and NDP parties advocate
a mealy - mouthed socialism
which caters purely to the business interest of an established
upper class.
They are two faced in offering social assistance to the
lower classes only when it suits
the machinations of the big
city capitalist.
Therefore my hearty congratulations go to the 101 true
and honest fighters for freedom who had the courage of
their convictions and strength
on character to vote for the
only party of freedom — the
Communist Party.

The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Are the students and faculty
of this university aware that,
visitors to our fair campus are
treated like common criminals
by Buster and his cohorts?
On Wednesday morning, January 31, between 8:30 and 9:30
several students gathered in
Buchanan lounge witnessed an
interesting spectacle on the
visitors' parking lounge opposite. Here were three "respectable" employees of B&G (two
constables and a truck driver)
calmly using a pass key to unlock five legally parked keys
in this lot!
Nor did the ridiculous proceedings stop there. One of the
constables climbed gaily into
a blue Vauxhall and remained
inside for about three minuter,,
Now—being naive and innocent students—we have absolutely no idea what this fellow
found that kept him so busy in
there. Subversive communist
literature, maybe? Ah—pornographic magazines? No? Then
probably lie was on the track
of a dope smuggler and found
a cache of heroin. Or perhaps
there was an expensive camera
sitting there, just crying for a
new owner.
Heavens to betsy!—don't you
get us wrong, now! We certainly don't think anything nasty
or underhanded was going on.
No indeed!
. What we want to know is—
wouldn't they call it "breaking
and entering" if we did it?
Oh—but we forget! They probably had warrants. That must
be the answer.
However, you will be glad
to hear that our tale of woe
has a happy ending. Their
search completed, Buster and
his friends left the nice little
cars owned by nice little visitors just where they found them
—legally parked in the nice
little visitors' parking lot.
But wasn't it nice of Buster
to come and prowl through
these nice little cars visiting
our university? Buster just
didn't want them to be lonesome away from home.

The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Many students on this campus have expressed either inwardly or outwardly their
condemnation of our "award
winning" publication, The
Ubyssey. It is a pity that I cannot extend congratulations to
the very capable Mr. McAfee
and his equally capable staff
upon receiving the honor of
the best paper published by a
Canadian university. What
then can be said of other uni-.
versity publications? How enlightening it is to think that
The Ubyssey is the standard of-
literary excellence!
This fourth estate contains
not only advertisement snapshots, campus gossip, and want
ads, but also editorials, criticisms, and current affairs. The
latter material exists in small
quantities, accounting for about
25 per cent of the final output.
The formidable task of producing the remaining 75 per cent
is managed remarkably well by
the capable staff of distinguished journalists found on The
They do not bother to waste
time on such trivial matters
as peace or freedom. They
make no attempt to contribute
to these issues, nor do they
propose any alternatives. They
whine and yap like puppy dogs
at Bennett and Bonner, but
show their fangs at Hughes.
They exploit and feed on sensationalism as do their evening
and morning brothers. They
advocate editorial anonymity
with their x's and y's. They
walk around people's beliefs
and feelings, but navigate towards crackpot organizations.
They cry "freedom for the
press" while twisting, distorting and mutilating views of
others. They have ignored their
responsibilities too long and
have reached the peak of literary evil and decadence.
It is time for Mr. McAfee
either to give his readers a
"new deal" or to resign along
with his staff.
Yours truly,
Education 2.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Instead of talking about
"lefts and rights," why not
talk about these fine characters
living on campus and stealing
other people's property?
Why not consider for once
the student's reaction toward
these, who cannot keep their
hands off another student's belongings?
I was confronted with this
last Friday.
Having too many books to
carry, I put my transistor radio, my history and Latin book
in a shelf in the Buchanan extension building.
After my first lecture I came
back and to my disgust I saw
that the transistor was gone.
Does it give these people
satisfaction to think that the
bestealed student might have
to work for a long time in order to have the object replaced
It surely is not fine to be on
a campus where students have
to mistrust their colleagues.

— Letters to the Editor ■
Suggests support
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
On a Saturday TV program,
UBC Educational Report featured the subject of French-
and English - speaking Canadians.
I think that the initiative,
taken by University students
from Eastern and Western
Canada to encourage relations
between both cultural groups,
should be supported.
Canada is so wide that Canadians in the past had to ignore
the evolution of the other
Today, when fast transportation greatly reduces the continent, citizens from both sides*
show more interest in each
other's culture.
The French were only
65,000, and mostly farmers,
after the Treaty of Paris in
1763. In 1962, the nation counts
more than 4,000,000 French
Canadians, among them lawyers, doctors in medicine,
writers, industrialists, scientists, and all the professions
involved in modern life.
This fact should be sufficient to make the Frepch and
English languages studied on
the same level in all provinces.
High-school students should be
encouraged to prefer French,
the second Canadian language,
rather than German or Spanish
for instance.
University students, who
take French, are analyzing
French authors famous in
novel-making but difficult to
study, even for French-speaking people. The classics can not
be neglected.
But those very students, who
strain their brains over 20
pages of Balzac's description of
a provincial town in 19th century France, know too little
about the modern French
literature of their own country.
If Canada expands from sea
to sea, why not extend from
sea to sea the interests of the
new generations? There are
some beautiful poems, and val-.
uable novels composed by
French Canadian writers of the
19th and 20th centuries.
Some modern French-Canadian melodies and stage plays
are well appreciated in France.
What do the English-speaking
Canadians know of them?
Why do some Canadians,
very keen on French culture
from France, close their mind
to the French culture of their
own country
Is it because they heard that
the French Canadians do not
use the same French as the
people of France? If so, they
are mistaken.
Of course, a same language
varies in pronunciation, and
sometimes in vocabularly, under different climatic conditions. But these changes must
not be exaggerated. To, an
equal degree, French and English in Canada sound different
from English and French on
the other side of the Atlantic.
Nevertheless, those variations
do not occur in the written
language, or very little.
As much as English, and in
a different way, the French
language is a wonderful instrument, whose color and harmony produced literary masterpieces, and which, for its
concision, was used for over
two centuries in world diplomacy.
Yours truly,
NFCUS defined
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Re A. Thompson's letter- of
last Thursday.
Possibly, Mr. Thompson, you
are unaware of what NFCUS
is and what it does. Permit us
to enlighten you.
As your concern seems to be
concentrated in the realm of
dollars and cents, we will
ignore the nebulous but very
real benefits of stuaent unity
and of inter-provincial bonds.
You want concrete evidence
of value, Mr. Thompson. Here
it is:
1. NFCUS was the most in-
fluencial pressure group in persuading the government to
make tuition fees deductible
on income tax. This results in
savings of up to $80 per year
for 50 per cent of our student
population. Moreover, at present we are working for future
reduction on books etc.
2., Four inter-regional scholarships are available each year
for any UBC student wishing
to study in another Canadian
University. This includes tuition and a travel grant.
3. In the area of travel,
NFCUS offers terrific schemes
for students. Let us cite you
just one example. A current
local project of chartered
planes for students planning
summer trips to Europe will
mean a savings of $30,000. This
is based on a fare reduction
from $677 to $350.
4. Our literary contest, just
completed, offered prizes totalling $250.
Your reference to the annual
student seminar as "a free
yearly booze conference of our
most noble leaders" is poorly
taken. Last year, only two of
our nine delegates could be
termed student council types.
This seminar, by the way, is
paid for by Canada Council.
We are currently taking applications for this seminar, Mr.
Thompson. We will expect you
to drop in for yours today.
The NFCUS committee has
the utmost sympathy for the
UN Club and its aims. Its defenders, however, should be
more accurate.
Yours truly,
NFCUS Committee.

College comments
Canada and civil defence policy
The current debate on the
civil defence policy of the
government so often centres
around the statements of scientists that one is sometimes
tempted to arrive at the conclusion that the argument is
about facts, not about approaches to public security and
sanity, or contradictory world
Further examination reveals
what one might suspect in any
case: the "objectivity" of such
statements is heavily weighted
by the political views of the
"detached observer".
Upon reading Defence Minister Harkness' recent letter to
the Week-End Magazine, or
upon hearing President Kennedy proclaim in his State of
the Union message, his readiness to fight rather than make
any concessions on specified
allied right in Berlin, one gets
the    nauseating    feeling   that
Why I am
a pacifist
From the
W. Washington Collegian
I base my belief on a fact
that is too often forgotten when
we attempt to face our present
world situation. With the development and possession of
chemical and nuclear armaments by the major powers, a
world war — or even a local
war—could mean the total destruction of human life—nay,
all life—on earth. Therefore,
it must be realized that war
has become obsolete as a method of solving conflicts between
But, seemingly oblivious to
this boldly evident fact, nations rush to construct more
powerful nuclear weapons. It
is claimed by each major power that the only way to maintain peace is to have such a
great deterrent to war that the
enemy will dare not make an
aggressive move. But suppose
that through. some error, an
"aggressive" bomb was dropped. The only thing for the recipient to do would be to retaliate with another bomb..
And so on . . . thoughts of the
results aren't pleasing.
The world situation today is
based on fear. We fear the effect of nuclear power, so we
pretend it doesn't exist (or at
least we minimize its dangers).
We are afraid of the Communists (who are just as afraid of
us), so we construct ineffectual
defences and suicidal "deterrents." It is only when we face
up to the fact of the self destruction we are surely headed
for, that we will be able to
resolve a world peace.
I believe that we must aim
for nuclear disarmament first
and foremost. But all attempts
to disarm end in failure —
mainly because each country is
afraid to drop her "defences."
One country, then, must disarm with the conviction that
she can accomplish her ends
without violence. This is an
act: of courage,  not of fear.
Non-violence is not an immediate answer, and it is not
easy. But the only other path
is toward total destruction.
these men actually consider
nuclear war as a practicable
instrument for furthering of
diplomacy by other means.
Harkness seems to consider, in
the terms of his own analogy,
a lifeboat as a reasonable second-best way of getting to
shore. The implied belief that
a war wouldn't be as bad as
all that is at least partly to
blame for his neglecting to
mention certain vital statistics
about bombs and redioactivity.
Let us look, as an illustration, at Mr. Harkness' argument that of "the great number of Canadians who live outside our major cities, and even
to those who live in such cities
if they should not actually be
attacked . . . fall-out shelters
would provide a real chance,
even a reasonable assurance of
survival". Edmund Khan, the
author of "A Thermonuclear
War", makes similar claims.
In many ways, his views as
to the efficacy of a civil defence program to mitigate the
effects of a nuclear war, may
be viewed as a rationale for
the government's policies.
Harkness nevertheless realizes (as everyone must) that the
cities, should they be attacked,
would be completely destroyed.
Tt is unlikely that anyone or
anything would be left alive
within a twenty-five mile radius of a twenty-megaton blast
unless special shelter could be
reached within twenty - two
minutes of it, and even then
the battle for life would be an
uphill one.
This of course is not an argument against the construction
of such shelters, or others in
rural areas. But the state of the
atmosphere would require remaining underground, in the
greatest likelihood, for months.
It is necessary, before proceeding further, to make certain distinctions here. I have
been speaking about a situation
which would apply to the United States more than to Canada. It is at least possible that,
should Canada follow a more
neutralist line in foreign policy, or should it refuse to receive nuclear warheads upon
its soil, it would bear little of
a conceivable   Russian  attack.
It is not Canada that con-,
stitutes by any means the main
obstacle to Russian expansionism; there may be no good
reason for the Soviets to include Canada in their attack
under the above circumstances.
But we cannot expect the
U.S. to allow for a relinquishing of DEW line duties even if
we wished it. (For moral reasons alone, many would find
such a policy distasteful.)
Moreover, there is nothing we
can do about American missile
bases just below the border.
As a consequence of these
conceivably divergent conditions in relation to the USSR,
the nature of Civil Defence
precautions to be undertaken
in the U.S. and Canada should
be distinguished, each suited
to the kind of menace faced.
For example, fallout shelters
in Canadian cities may be far
more reasonable than similar
devices in American cities, because the main danger to Canada may be fallout rather than
blast,    firestorms,    and   other
more   direct    consequences   of
the bomb.
On the other hand, a caveat
must be entered against too-
facile assumptions of the ease
with which normal life could
be resumed following a nuclear
war. If the whole, or most part
of, a nuclear attack should be
directed against the U.S. we
could presumably recover in a
relatively short period.
The time required would of
course depend on the intensity
of the war (i.e. how many
bombs were dropped, and of
what size), and its extent (in
terms of space and time). This
at least would be the position
of the supporters of government policy, who would go further and claim that we could
recover even from an attack
on Canada in "due course", in
Harkness' words.
What we must examine then,
is how long this "due course"
must be, what conditions would
face survivors after this period,
and whether measures now being taken would be in any
way sufficient to cope with the
The length of the time before emergence from shelters
would vary with obvious
factors, and of course, would
increase greatly if we were to
be a direct target. On the latter assumption, it would undoubtedly be months. Though
some of the radioactive materials released in a thermonuclear explosion are shortlived, others, such as radioactive strontium and cesium,
retain their killing power for
many months.
There might be many survivors, but after a war of the
most likely proportions it
would be at least many weeks
before one could emerge from
underground, and then, in all
probability, there would belittle, if anything, to eat, no
means of communications, no
possibility of getting help for
the sick from hospitals, etc.
In view of these likelihoods,
the obvious insufficiency of
the present civil defence program as a protection against
an all-out war is manifest.
Food, water, medical aid, etc.
would have to be available in
sufficient quantities to last for
perhaps months.
Present shelters can not be
equipped for more than a few
weeks, even those being built
in suburban areas — and most
of them do not, to my knowledge, have any provisions for
the use of manufactured oxygen, which would be necessary
in the case of a thermonuclear
war. This problem has yet to
be solved. These are only a
few of the difficulties connected with the disorganized,
hesitant kind of policy that the
Canadian government is personally pursuing.
The dilemma then, is: piecemeal, unco-ordinated effort is
both hopelessly inadequate and
morally repulsive (for reasons
to be discussed) — perhaps
even detrimental to the safety
of persons and, on the other
hand, anything approaching an
adequate program may be undesirable for other reasons.
From what has already been
said, it would seem to follow
that for any advantage to be
gained from a civil defence
policy, it must be comprehensive, in the sense of providing
for the fundamental needs of
survivors, i.e. hospitals, food,
water, etc. It must also be carefully planned from the point
of view of access, location, provision of ogygen, order, and
so on.
It immediately becomes evident that such a program
would cost billions of dollars,
and could, of course, be undertaken only by the government.
Some might object that the
burden should not be placed
solely, or even mainly, on the
government. Individuals should
be urged to provide for their
own salvation, as has indeed
been done. Such a view, of
course, puts a price on a man's
life, and he -who cannot pay,
must be sacrificed.
There are many who could
not afford the price. Such an
unco-ordinated program would,
in any case, be a' waste. On
the other hand, if it would save
some people, some might claim
that this is the best alternative
These people might be unwilling to see the government
sink huge sums of money into
such a policy, at the cost of
building new schools, providing increased social security,
etc. But this procedure remains
grossly unfair and exploitative.
Such a view may, at least in
theory, be combined with a belief in the impossibility of war.
This involves the mistaken
assumption of rationality (war
would be totally destructive;
hence war is inconceivable;
hence there can be no war).
Moreover, if the logic of this
case is followed through, what
the government should be doing instead of urging people-to
build shelters is protecting
them from those who would
capitalize upon their delusions.
Perhaps more important than
all this is the basic objection,
that national security is the
government's job, not the individual's. We are not asked to
provide our own drinking water, have our own roads, or
mount machine-guns on our
window ledges to protect our
homes. No-one (I hope) ever
thinks of delegating these tasks
to the individual. Civil defence
represents a similar situation.
It is, I repeat, the government's
The attempt to convince the
Russians that we are prepared
to fight, and the attempt to
use fallout shelters as evidence
of this readiness, may bring us
much nearer to an actual fight;
we may find the logic of the
situation inescapably pushing
us to a position in which to
prove our readiness to fight,
we will have to do, with the
knowledge of the safety of at
least part of the population
consoling us for this necessity.
The further realization that
so few would survive, in any
case, that the suffering caused
would be endless and infinite,
and that the world post bellum
would be a living hell, might
make such people hesitant
about doing anything to weight
the balance towards war.
But then are we to condemn
a priori by our inaction? Is not
some program necessary to
save as many as possible, especially in the (unlikely) event-
of a limited war? But how are
we to choose whom to save,
and how are we to balance increased risk for the many
against increased survival
chances for the few?
These are some of the seemingly insoluble riddles requir-_
ing solutions. I have attempted
to outline some of the difficulties involved in them, though
such an attempt must be no
more than a feeble and tentative groping in the dark. I
hope I have at least drawn'
attention to the many aspects
of the problem.
Why I am not
a pacifist
From the
W. Washington Collegian
According to Funk and Wag-
nails New College Standard
Dictionary, a pacifist is "One
who opposes military ideals,
war, or military preparedness,
and proposes that all international disputes be settled by-
arbitration." Those who believe
in this concept are overlooking
an inherent inconsistency, i.e.,
that man cannot live as man
without expressing his moral
rights. These rights are inherent, and If the expression of
these rights are sacrificed as
a result of a belief in pacifism,
then man has degenerated into
a mere beast.
One who is a pacifist would
allow the society in which he
lives to supress the expression
of his moral rights without opposition, in order to avoid
forceful conflict. If an indivi-.
dual believes in a spiritual
quality in man, i.e., those qualities above governments and
society, then he must also believe that to oppose any concept that would deny him of
these moral rights is only part
of being a rational human being.
To allow the growth of an
anti-spiritual and evil concept,
such as communism, without
opposing it, is to reject the
responsibility of acting as a
human being. The belief that
ideological conflicts can be
settled by negotiations has
proved to be erroneous, not
only by Neville Chamberlain
who attempted to appease and
negotiate with Hitler, but also
by the many attempts of the
U.S. to negotiate with the
I personally oppose war and
military ideals, but I also have
a strong conviction that the
best way to maintain peace,
world security, and to ensure
freedom of my descendants is
to stand firm against communism or any other type of tyranny. To arbitrate with another
country and attempt to reach
a peaceful settlement with that
country is the best method of
maintaining peace, but only if
that country is trustworthy.
As an individual, I will protest any movement that is pa-
cifistic. Because I believe in a
spiritual quality in man, I wll
not compromise or negotiate
with any concept entirely devoted to the destruction of the
expression of my moral rights. Thursday, February 15, 1962

"It doesn't matter who you vote for—but vote."
"There's something about a Chevrolet that makes you feel
tglad all over."
"Why do you buy brand names? Because you trust them . . .
like good friends they're always there."
Three little niceties which you have all heard at one time or
another. Certainly the first has been repeated over and over at
election time until I, personally, am sick to death of it. The two
that follow are variations of a standard theme—buy.
Well, let us think for a few moments today. Of course it matters who you vote for. Why the hell vote if it doesn't matter who
you vote for? *        V-        3?
Of course mere's something about a Chevrolet that makes you
feel glad all over. When you've made your last payment on the
1961 Chev. in 1975. Or maybe it's something else—like "Oboy,
Oboy, will the Joneses ever feel sick when they see this."
Of course you buy brand names because you trust them. And
how they've told you. Trust in us, trust in me, my product is next

You are gullible. You will take anything in. You will listen
to garbage and make "intelligent" comment on nonsense.
A question arises . . . why? Why will people comment on
-absurdities? Why will people rush right down to the corner store
and buy?
This question has bothered me for some time. I concluded,
after thinking about it, that people assume a great deal when they
look at T.V. commercials, or read newspaper ads. They see what
they want to see, they hear what they want to hear. Primarily
they don't think.
Just to test this theory, I took a little survey when The Ubyssey was having trouble with student council. As you recall, the
question involved one of the basic freedoms of the press.

The following are comments in reply to the question:
When council took action against The Ubyssey, they did
several things: One thing the presstrill and freedom with

sure that the fraysted or less was in the power of the
council, didn't they.

One comment out of four that indicates the chap was thinking and an Engineer yet! Each person offered an intelligent comment, but on what?
I suggest the reason these people answered the above question is essentially the same reason by which the advertiser is

The types above all thought I was talking about freedom of
;he press.
Can you find one mention of the word press? Or perhaps they

"The government alone cannot provide proper care without the advice and co-operation
of the providers of the care,"
Dr. McCoy said. "The doctors
must be consulted."
A government monopoly of
all medical services means that
politics will take over the medical profession to the detriment
of medical care, he said.
Dr. Archie Johnson, Director
of University Health Services,
speaking with Dr. McCoy, said
the desire for socialized medicine is part of the wave of socialization sweeping the country.
"People feel it is their right
to be taken care of," he said.
People on social welfare and
old age assistance are already
taken "care of by the government, he said. With MSA and
MSI, few are unable to meet
high medical costs.
Thus there is little need for
a state medical plan, he said.
Dr. Johnson said state medicine impedes the freedom of the
doctor and hampers the advance of modern medicine.

Clint Smith, a product of scrub and heritage
Clint Smith is the product
of scrub hockey and a family
Smith, UBC Thunderbird
centre, is the son of amateur
player and coach Biff Smith
and nephew of former National
Hockey League great Clint
The   20 - year - old   Engineer
first learned to skate at the
age of three on a flooded and
frozen backyard in Burnaby.
Hockey has been the family
sport since he can remember.
"My dad played amateur
hockey on the prairies and
overseas. My uncle played for
the New York Rangers and
Chicago Black Hawks of the
NHL," he says.
After retiring as a player,
his uncle coached a Cincinnati
professional team.
Toronto Maple Leaf Sports Magazine
.Coaching a National Hockey League team can be a frustrating occupation,  fraught  with complications and  anxieties.
r Theite are no books of reference, no Happy Coaching Handbook
for guidance.
For reasons unknown, ex-coaches, even the successful ones,
have not written outlines of their magnificent strategy down
through the years. Generals and ex-generals seldom missed
opportunities like this to chronicle their brilliant manoeuvres
for posterity.
As it is now, when a coach comes into the NHL he has to
prescribe for himself. There is nobody, no authority to turn to
for.advice on the proper grip for gate-opening. Should it be
overlapping or interlocking? Should there be a follow through?
And how about dressing room orations? Should a coach
give the incandescent one, with vehement gesticulating, before
the game and crack a few corny jokes between periods? Or
vice versa? It's so confusing without a shinny Ann Landers
to help.
Then, of course, there are those post-game encounters with
the press. Throughout a 70-game schedule, exhibitions and
playoff-games, practices, etc., it is a formidable chore to churn
up the urbane quip, the devastating riposte that writers solicit.
A coach's reference bible, somewhat on the lines of Bartlett's
Familiar Quotations, would be invaluable and then no coach
would ever be caught with his ad libs down.
Here are some fool-proof, never-fail procedures endorsed
by several coaches emeritus, whose ad libs live after them.
Look for omens, forerunners or signs to dress up your
soliloquies. Newspapermen are nuts over that psychic junk.
Tell them you had a 'hunch,.you were going to win when you
cut your throat shaving and didn't bleed a drop. Say you deduced from that you were due to get a couple Of breaks. Throw
in that you fell over a horseshoe, saw a load of hay and found
a four-leaf clover in your soup. This is all priceless stuff.
Mix in a few whimsical, folksy sayings. Most of the scribes
flip over colorful vernacularisms. And you'll look like Will
Rogers in the papers next day when you read such picturesque
homilies as: "They can't hit what they can't see.' "That fellow
sure can put the puck into that net." "If we get good goaltend-
ing and our defence inlays well and our forwards go both ways
we might win with a Jew breaks." "They're not so tough. They
put on their pants one leg at a time." "I can only tell them what
to do. I can't do it for them."
For utterances of greatest portent, involving top-level
strategy, or predictions, the phraseology is revised and it is
suggested that the coach frown deeply and pause dramatically
before issuing his dramatic pronouncement^. A wonderful effect
can be achieved by wiping away tears or better still, bleeding
a little. This method is especially recommended when dealing
with sports editors or shareholders.
It takes a little practice to become fluent in these exchanges but it can be accomplished with resourceful training.
Above all, remember, keep talking.
When a visiting team loses in your rink and then loses
again the following night, always observe: "It figures. We took
so much out of them they had nothing left."
But, should the aforementioned visiting team happen to
produce a victory a night later the party line can easily be
adjusted with a verbal wrench. Then the explanation is: "It
figures. They were so annoyed at losing to us that they took it
out on the poor Henhawks. They were overdue."
Sometimes it calls on all a coach's inventiveness to explain
how a player, who has been bruising his rump on the bench,
is finally allowed out on the ice and the player responds by
scoring three or four goals and disports himself like an All-
Star. This forces the coach to resort to adroit, mental stick-
handling. Here is the safest and recommended procedure.
"We must have a heck of a strong team when I can afford
to keep a guy like that on the bench," is an elegant explanation.
Follow it up with a couple of disarming ho-ho-ho's. That usually perplexes the scribes for a few days. By the titne they get
suspicious, One Night Wonder's flame has flickered out, he is
back on the bench and the heat is off. (
In times of extreme provocation or indecision, of course,
pou can always lock the dressing room door. But it should be
lone only as a last resort and should be practised onjy by coaches who also have the portfolio of manager.
"My father taught me how to
skate and has always given
me pointers," says the 175-

lem from New Westminster
where I live was taking too

Smith has been playing
hockey for the past 10 years
but he says Father David
Bauer, his present coach, the
best he has ever played for.
UBC coach Father Bauer

The team  plays man to man,
forchecking the opposition in

give spectators an idea of the
kind of play to expect in the
proposed Northwest Intercollegiate Rugby League next

one of the six teams participating in this new league.

A controversial movement is picking up steam. If it succeeds, the

be banned. And IN GOO WE TRUST
will be taken off our coins. In this
week's Post, Billy Graham speaks
out against this trend — and tells
why he thinks atheists play into
Communist bands.
