treated to the first "full dress"
opening of Model Parliament in
university history today.
AMS President Ben Trevino.
"Governor-General" of UBC's
Model Parliament, will officiate
at the opening in Brock Lounge
at noon. UBC Radio and CBUT
have promised extensive coverage of the proceedings.
Brock Hall will become "Parliament" for the occasion. The
official opening will be an attempt to duplicate the Ottawa
ceremony as closely as possible.
Students will be able to witness enactments of procedures
which originated long ago in
British Parliamentary JikUory.
They will see the speaker being

Referendum - What Did It Mean?
A majorty of students voted Wednesday to assess themselves a fee increase for
the purpose of aiding the university in its
Development Campaign. This means that
all fees will be upped for this purpose during the next three years.
This could be an indication that the
Ubyssey editbrial policy has some influence
over the thinking of the student body.
It could be an indication that the speakers in favor of the increase at the general
meeting were more persuasive than the
speakers who did not favor the move.
It could be an indication that the students decided to help themselves and their
successors because they despaired of much
help from the government.
It could be an indication that we are
living in a time of prosperity when a fee
increase is not regarded as a serious obstacle
to widespread education.
It could be an indication that students
want publicity for their Development Campaign and thought that this was the best
way to gain it.
But  we're  inclined  to  think   that  all
these possibilities are subject to the one big
That the students have a genuine desire
to contribute to the building of their university.
In any case this referendum vote means
that student housing should be well under
way by next fall. Combined with the Canada Council grant provincial government
matching grants, and Mr. Robson's earmarked gift, as well, we hope, a.s other
donations from persons and industries within the province out-of-town students should
soon be able to live like human beings in
surroundings conducive to both study and
Not only the dormitories will receive
attention as a result of this fee increase
decision. If students are willing to assess
themselves for one of the many needed projects it is not too much to ask nor to expect
that the teaching staff, the businessmen, the
industrialists, the Mr. average holding q
job, and even the government recognize the
needs of this crowded university, and budget
to eliminate the needs.
"A Matter Of Bad Business"
The United Charity Appeal in Metropolitan Toronto fell short of its objective
this year.
The president of the United Community
Fund told Toronto businessmen that no giving to charity was "a matter of bad business."
In the course of time he said, businessmen who do not give money to charity
"will become moral outcasts of this great
metropolitan community. In their c -n vin-
dictiveness their businesses are going to
Mr. Black, the president of Charity
Incorporated in that f."ir city, went even
further in jiis veiled threat to businessmen
who didn't wish to advertise their generosity.
He publicly staled: "If I were running;
a business and were approached by an organization as  formidable  with  members  a.s
influential, as this one, I would think long
and hard before I ran counter to their
declared wishes."
Mr. Black is president of Canadian
From his statement we might assume
that as president of Canadian Breweries, he
hopes that more skid-row-ites will drink
more beer so that he can give more charity,
so that the influential charity-minded businessmen who are ever so moral, will regard
him mote highly and drink more beer, and
demand more charity and drink more beer,
and . . .

It certainly i.s a fine and dandy thing
that there are some businessmen like Mr.

The "Wonderful Age Of Youth"
— And The Vancouver Sun
Critique 01 A  "Sun" Editorial
You may have noticed that
the Vancouver Sun's old business nose has been snooping
around loose on our campus.
Its pedestrian, platitudinous
editorial snoot has somehow
smelt out the current show of
Italian teen-agers art in the
library basement, and from
this relatively innocent display of prirnitivism, has fabricated a delightful piece of
sophistry. It operates ostensibly through all the Sun's
pet themes; from teen-ager
gangsterism, the distasteful
enigma of culture, the pettiness of the arts and individualism, to a soppy sentiment-
alism about the capitalist
spirit. And it achieves a
strong, subtle efleet with a
casual, conversational tone.
Beware the home-owned philosopher, with the new subliminal  touch!
It is with disbelief, with uplift, that we hear "an exhibition of teen-agers painting
from Milan, Iatly, at the UBC
fine arts gallery, once again
shows that noi all youngsters
are hoodlums, bums and roustabouts," especially when we
remember the more fascinating aspects of the lives of the
great painters. Shall the little
frocked hoodlums be spanked
and put to bed without their
spaghetti'.' No, for a paradox
is being drawn, and the Sun
now sidles into this position:
"The wonderful age ol youth
is a well ol energy, coin am1,
(!.". im.: and   i 'ia 'la ,'   ! I ;; runs
over at spots it simply proves
that adult leadership is lacking in channeling the bubbling
waters." Adult leadership, the
wonderful euphemism, a cut
above the term for roustabouts. The old nose sniffing
the stratosphere.
Then we have three curious
sentences, which have a suc-
cint application to the making
of the first million, or the
political career, but little to
painting: "Youth is the period
of creativeness. And there is
no creation without energy.
As the adult creative type retains its youthful energy, by
this much does it approach
mature artistry.'' Note the
elusive bridge from ''creativeness" to "artistry," which is
the difference between personal satisfaction and wider
Now we are treated to a
journalese cocktail: falsetto,
Iwo gasping, incomplete sentences, which are cunning contradictions of the article as a
whole, plus a grand old platitude, a soft brown redundancy, flavored wiih the
pungent cherry of Youth Programming: "But the weakness
in many grown-ups i.s to develop into iuddy-dudclyism. To
mistake high-spirited creative
urges for a desire for wanton mischief. And thus to lean
toward curbing youth instead
ol helping it to self-expression. All youth is creative. Not
all is creative in the sphere
ul the line arts. Il is here lhat
adult   advi.Mirv   bodies   should
do their most serious work."
It is not safe to drink this
stuff even when you've seen
the host down it; he has a
professional stomach.
Thes e fragmentary sentences are no accident. First,
the editorial was placed in a
weak spot, under the leads,
over the guest editorial, beside the letters. It was therefore designed for fleeting eyes,
inattentive minds. The cut
sentences are a recognition of
the leader's need to stop and
look back, to reject temporarily the theme he thinks is
being presented.
Probably aimed at the parents, it opens with the popular subject of hoodlums, mentions creative youth, which
is to connect it vvith the present preoccupation with education for science. But il
eventually emphasized the
disciplinary function of parents. Youth forever must be
channellized, suppressed.
Having spent his passions,
Icarus wilts judiciously in
the blaze of his own philosophy, and returns to good old
solid pragmatic ground: 'This
i.s a world of serious commerce .industry, finance, agriculture, professional attainments and the lesser arts as
well as the fine arts."
Ah! But stay, a cause! 'How
many young people through11
out the world ha''e desires to
excel in all these, but find
no adults willing to extend a
hand in leadership?" It isn't
made clear whether Ihe  bub
bling wells of energy were
going to benefit from the
leadership of "mature artistry" or "fuddy-duddyism." In
any case, anthing that bubbles, adolescent or adult, deserves the strong sober hand
of the serious world. There
is no room for conspiciousness
here (apart from the aberrations of the Social Credit
Now with a sniff, the finale,
touchingly personal. Just you
and me, says the Sun, whipping a copious, sticky handkerchief to its twitching nose,
we could make such sweet
music together. Listen! "We
might change the world, a
world increasingly suffering
nervous tensions, if only we
harnessed such desires, the
idealism of youth, and — its
greater knowledge of modernism than any adult could possibly possess. We are missing
a great bet leaving so much
to chance and Tin Pan Alley."
Add an "amen" and we have
our cultural credo.
But you're teasing us with
flattery, sir. "The idealism of
youth" knows nothing of
"modernism." And to refer to
us as idealistc, well really,
that is a bit of a slur.

To adequately reply to Mr.
Dave Robertson's recent misleading editorial entitled "United Appeal Ineffective" requires much more space than
you can afford to devote to it.
However, the following in summary covers the main points.
Mr. Robertson appears io be
unaware that over one hundred million dollars are spent
by Governments annually in
this province for health and
welfare purposes. On the other
hand not more than four million dollars of voluntary funds
are spent on all voluntary
health and welfare services. It
must also be made clear that
Red Feather Services rather
than depending "wholly on,
voluntary public donations for
their up-keep" receive on the
average only 38.3% of their
income from the Chest and this
is matched almost dollar for
dollar by Government Grants.
These voluntary Agencies free
from legislative rigidities can
flex their programs to meet
variations in human need and
are free to meet gaps ln service not provided by Government. These Agencies cati
pioneer new developments in
set-vice Where Goverhments
with a sensitive ear to the electorate have difficulty in giving
There are seventeen thousand volunteers working in
Vancouver with the Community Chest and Council and its
fifty-nine services. These and
other countless volunteers
throughout the province represent a core of concerned citizenry who will press for good
standards of service in both
public and voluntary Agencies. This personal service
would be lost if all financing
were turned over to government for government financing
unless linked with voluntary
financing will inevitably lead
to government control.
I believe the statement that
'people don't deserve the right
to choose how much or how
little they should give" loses
much of its significance regardless of personal opinion when
wc consider wc have no choice
in the 96% represented by
government spending o n
health and welfare.
Mr. Robertson refers to "fantastic publicity" pressuring
people. I would suggest that
it is not as much an indication
of people not wanting to give
as it is that people must be acquainted with the reasons why
they should give and publicity
serves this purpose.
United Fund Raising i.s specifically designed to eliminate
"haphazard" methods. Here is
the medium by which voluntary funds may be more of- j
foctively collected, and distributed to services not on the I
basis of emotional appeal, but
on the basis of actual needs.
It is already    the    accepted
role   of   Government   to   meet
basic health and welfare needs i
of people.    On the other hand 1
there   i.s   that   relatively   small ;
cost area, large in significance
and   impact,   where   voluntary
endeavour   has   its     clay     and
points  the  direction  of future
developments. ■
Your  editorial  was  entitled
"United    Appeal   Ineffective".
I cannot minimize the seriousness of the quarter of a million '
dollar shortage in the current I
campaign.    The loss in service i
to the community is real. Nov- !
ertheless   we   must   point   out
that  this    year    the    amount
raised is a 100'r  increase over
the  amount  raised  four  years
ago  when   the  Chest  resolved
to do its utmost to consolidate j
voluntary  appeals   in  Vaneou- '
ver.    This   record   can   hardly
be termed "ineffective".
Yours very sincerely,
Executive  Director,
Community   Chest   Council   ol
Greater Vancouver.
Shock and Horror
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
It is not my custom, as a
general rule, to communicate
with my fellow sludenis via
the outlet you provide. However, in view of thc disgraceful occurance — I will not pay
it the honor of terming it an
"incident" — which took place
at Friday night's International
House debate on the Situation
at Little Rock, I feel inspired,
in fact I feel it is my duty, to
express what I am quite sure
is the opinion of every moral,
right-thinking man and woman
present at that debate.
This debate had proceeded
in a sane and reaspnable manner. It was with shock and
horror, therefore, that we
viewed the appearance of two
persons — members, if we
were to believe aright, if that
baneful and disgraceful organization which has long blighted
the Southern States, the Ku
Klux Klan — who stalked into the anteroom of International House flourishing a flaming Cross.
The attitude of facetious disregard exhibited by these misguided and mislead — I hesitate to suggest by what subversive factors — individuals
indicates, I believe, the essential flaw in much Canadian
thinking, Apathy, that spectral figure which has always
hampered the Canadian political scene, has here become
militant; how, I ask, can we
criticize the stand taken by
Faubus and his crew, when
we, here in the heart of Christian Vancouver, far away from
the tension and drama of the
Arkansas situation itself, can
afford to be glib and, indeed,
Sacriligious! about the sufferings of our brethren in the
Perhaps, as the speaker very
moderately suggested, this appalling action was meant to be
humorous. Yet I do not hesitate to appeal to my fellow
students to unfrock and expose
these despicable persons, whether they be malignant or
merely immature, so that their
act should bring to them consequences which they will not
soon forget.
It is my conviction, indeed,
that a reward may well be offered for their identification
and approbation. These young
men should be made an example, so that the democratic
spirit of Canada, and particularly of UBC, may be spread
abroad to the world.
Hurrah for Football
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
The full page article "UBC
Football Shambles must do
something now," in the Ubyssey, Nov. 8, received, I am sure
the   applause    of    all the stu
dents concerned about the future of UBC Football, "the
great fall pastime everywhere
else in North America" is
treated abominably ill al UBC.
We have been deprived up
to the present of the opportunity to confirm, to follow thc
example of our great American
The Romans had their gladiators, the peoples decide for
"panem el circenscs" must be
satisfied; the Americans manage to suppress the influence
of the seriously minded student, so that football players
can receive their well deserved
hero worship.
But we at UBC have no heroes — we are frustrated. Only
in extremely backward countries like Russia has the scholar and scientist a position in
the university community comparable to the football player
in the North American society.
Therefore the eggheads at
UBC have to be reduced greatly in number. They have to
be reformed these scholars, to
join the crowds to cheer our
team to victory — to give incentive to the players and to
attract bigger and better talent
to our team.
For was it not the prestige
given to football players in the
United States that prevented
that other nation from cruelly
shooting dogs into the sky.
It is therefore absolutely
necessary, as pointed out in
the article, that our High
School education system be revolutionized in view of the
great need for better football
players. It can only be regretted that a lowering of the
unusually high academic standards in our schools has not
been  advocated.    For:—
1. Too much time of high
school students is occupied
vvith their curriculum, which
leaves very little time for football.
2. There are now entirely
too many robust, potential
football players barred from
entrance to university, because
they lack a few ridiculous credits in their standing.
This situation has to be remedied as soon as possible.
Only football heroes can effectively restore our emotional
balance which has been so
rudely disturbed by recent
space events.
We must never be deprived
of our "great fall pastime.''
Truly  yours,
—To   be   satisfied
—For a better haircut

PIQUE BLEAK     Raven Criticized?
For those of you  who couldn't  see anything wrong
with  PIQUE,  may  I  offer  a  few  random   and  discreet
thoughts to prick your sensibilities.  Because  you  know,
these intellectuals can get away with murder if they think
their readers are sheepish enough.
Like the cover of the.most •
recent issue, most of the pages
sport a dazzling array of bright
faces. It is a pity that some of
their conversation  is  so dull.
Perhaps the company is overworked; with a few exceptions,
we see the taut sinews of some
beleaguered bard crushing the
paper with 2H inspiration. The
editorial  is  an  example  of  a
thin syrup of humor imperfectly hiding a proselytizing pill;
and   we   feel  that   the   medal
platform  is  a  little   crowded

writing was so deliberate, and
the wit so precious: "the pawnshops . . . and the display windows of second-hand dealers,
crammed with every conceivable kind of useless folly which
had its hey-day before the turn

is a waste of space.
Ross Colver's "Good AM, Mr.
PM" is mildly amusing; "Psychological Implications" is a
little more so, but neither is
much in the way of satire.

"The Lecture System" was
an interesting discussion. Mr.
Hale's title is indeed succint,
but doesn't allow for that most
essential intermediary, confusion. These articles show that
a serious discussion has a place

is hard to keep up, and a little
tragic relief is welcomed.

The appearance of Pique last week caused a slow
roll of enthusiasm in this corner, containing, as it did, a
criticism of last year's RAVEN by a member of UBC's
English Department, Mr. J. F. Hulcoop. After nearly three
months of exploring the art of criticism on this page, we
were at last to receive some instruction, by example, from
our masters in the finer critical points, the more complex
maneuvers and disciplines.
We were puzzled and a little disappointed by what we
found. Mr. Hulcoop proved to
be as amateurish a swordsman
as we; his thrusts were nervous and clumsy, for the most
part, and he often left himself open to sallies so obvious
that we, with all deference,
can't resist delivering them.
He begins by postulating,
and we thank him very/much,
the identity of the critic a.s
that of a monarch whose subjects are the writers whom he
chooses to discuss. Thi3 definition, of course, places any response by the author to criticism directed at him in the category of treasonable activity, or,
at least, behaviour inappropriate to court society. But
having established this, why is
it then necessary to slide into
abject confession of hurtful,
even destructive, intent? Such
a statement as: ". . . several
people are about to be put to
the metaphorical sword," can
only be an Indication that the
monarch feels as shaky in his
role as he later describes his
subjects to be in theirs.
But perhaps we infer too
much. Mr. Hulcoop, after all,
has merely said that writer*
critic and monarch-subject are
relationships ". . . in many
ways, analogous . . ." However,
he makes no attempts to clarify
or explore the differences between the two relationships, so
we will push on, our conception of Mr. Hulcoop as a quaking king, vacillating in his decisions, intact.
There is, indeed, all manner
of vacillation in this critical
exercise. Pronouncements,
however pedestrian, are delivered in an assortment of
voices, from Olympian shouts
to the oh-well-you-know-what-
I-mean-anyvvay sort; from the
arbitrary limiting of '. . . evocations of place and person . . ."
to "expressionistic" writing, to
the unexplained reference to
". . . Hale-type prose writers
We were disturbed, too, by
the little inconsistencies that
kept popping up. After chiding
one author, for example, for
the use of "self-confessed"
cliches, that is, those placed
between inverted commas, Mr.
Hulcoop makes reference later
on to types, and does so between inverted commas. Speaking of another story, he remarks that "... clarification
of motive is often uncertain
. . ." (does he mean that the
motives are uncertain, or that
they are not clear?) after earlier
offering as the sole criticism
of "Initiation" the remark that
it ". . . was taken ... as a
satire on the theme of several
stories taught In Freshman English last year," a statement that
certainly leaves not only his
motives, but his meaning as
well, uncertain.
Mr. Hulcoop equates thc
writers of RAVEN with adolescents, and describes their manhandling of the theme of love.
His superior attitude was not,
we noted sadly, helped at all
by his reference to adolescence
and its predominance of sexuality as "embarrassing," or
his blase reference to Colette,
with the tiresome implication
that the French really know
all about love, you know, really
all about it.
Having picked our way
through all of this and more,
we came upon the statement
that "Of the poetry published
in RAVEN little space or time
has been left to say much." It
was at this point, at last, that
we laid the article quietly
aside. It is possible to grant
such a concession to one who
has used his time and space
brilliantly, but not, with any
grace, to one who has used
it to indulge his dubious whims.
Not that we are ungrateful;
we are pleased that Mr. Hulcoop saw fit to pick up the
sword in the first place, and
flattered that he wished to instruct us. But we already know
how to lay about us, thank
you very much. We need instruction in the more delicate
strokes. When suoh ia forthcoming, we will be more than
pleased to unwrap our foils
and show up for a few lessons.
