McMaster gets
midterm break
HAMILTON (CUP) — Students at McMaster University
will receive a mid-term break
this year, enabling them to
catch up on late essays and
to prepare for final examina-
tipns. .„.,..,.•.
During the week March 4-
10, no undergraduate classes
will be held, but members of
the faculty will be available

Scott gets
new look-
gilt edged
Coromerqeman Malcolm Scott
gets that gilt-edged look these
days when money-talk spills
into five figures.
; Like $90,000. Scott has invested this much — Alma Mater
Society money — on the downtown stock exchange since September.
Not that Scott, council treasurer, is getting grandiose. He
still likes the ring of small sums.
Smallish sums like $30,477.23.
"B.C. Electric parity development bonds," Scott reminisced.
"Five percent interest."
This one is old hat. Council
has already picked up its $1,455
cheque, profit from post-takeover B.C. Electric investments, j
Scott looks forward to~ realizing three and a half percent of
$60,000 sometime this spring.
"Industrial Acceptance Corporation. The kind of stuff insurance companies and trust
funds go into. The day Industrial goes broke we can all pack
up and go home," is the way
Seott explains the rules of how-
to-play - the - stock-exchange-and-
Section 2, sub-section 'f of
the new AMS constitution gives
Scott free rein with student
finances. He can buy stocks or
bonds "issued by any society
or company within the province
of British Columbia or elsewhere."
Malcolm Scott, in his new
role as chief student council
high-finance expert, likes to
compare the interest he's getting with what the banks offer.
"Three and a half percent
from Industrial. Five percent
from BCE. One to two percent
from the banks."
Important position?

Aussie   Rolf   Harris   demonstrates   "Dislocation   Twist"
SUB planner says
$5 million needed
Planning consultant Porter Butts Thursday warned student officials that the proposed $800,000 student union building
will be only a start in meeting UBC's ultimate needs for
student facilities.
Taken alone, he said, the new building would not meet
present needs, but would serve adequately as a supplement
to Brock Hall. <;
He said the new union, which would contain a maximum
of 40,000 square feet of floor space, would provide only about
3 square feet per student.
This is only 25 per cent of the minimum per student requirement shown in U.S. surveys, Butts said.
The director of the University
of Wisconsin union building,
Butts is on campus to assist a
student committee in planning
the new building. He arrived
Wednesday night and leaves
Butts suggested that definite
attempts be made to get more
money for the first stage of the
proposed union centre.
(Tentative plans are to build
a student center in three stages
to meet needs of a 20,000 student population).
When told that the Alma Mater Society may not bind the students for more than eight years
and must pay interest of 5%
percent on loans, he said, "This
university which built a $500,
000 building and found it totally
inadequate from the day it opened. He said they are now building a $2 million addition, but the
jost of attaching it to the first
unit is so high the first $500,000
was mostly wasted.
The planner estimated that^
UBC, if judged by normal standards, will ultimately require a
building of about 240,000 square
feet. It would cost about $5
million ' &fc_ present ra*je»* Because UBC has other-laciiiltes,
a smaller union center might be
adequate, he. said.
Butts will aid students in plan?

He said most U.S. buildings
are financed over 30 or 40 years
with interest rates as low as 3V6
per cent. "Banks and insurance companies in the U.S. are
glad to float these loans at interest rates ranging from four
to 4V£ per cent," he added.
He said it costs more in the
long run to build in stages.   •
Student president Alan Cornwall and Butts are scheduled to
meet witn administration officials today to discuss the problem.
Butts told of an 8,000-student
Mr. Butts pointed out that cultural and regional differences
are of great importance in planning.
He said the biggest ballroom
he had ever seen was built at a
j Mormon university where recreation such as billiards and card
playing are taboo. At a Lutheran
institution dancing is out, but
bowling is extremely popular.
Asked what he thought of
UBC at the end of a three-hour
tour, he said.it was too early to
offer an opinion. But he did .say:
"I've never seen so many separate srtack bars in my life."
But officials kick em out again	
Harris really draw 'em in for pep meet
Several hundred confused
students milled about the
foyer of the Memorial Gym
Thursday trying to give 25
cents away and get back into
the gym for the Mardi Gras
pep meet.
By 11:45 a.m. there were
more than 1,000 students in
the gym waiting for the show
to start.
They were requested to return to the foyer as no one
had been at the door charging
admission and distributing ballots when they came in.
•T*        •**        •!•
The result was a colossal
traffic jam as students left the
gym, filling the foyer, the
stairs and the corridors.
Then there was no one there
to take the money.
Students pushed, shoved
and grumbled.
"No    organization,"     com
plained one student, "Why
didn't they have someone here
"They could have charged
at the exit," added another,
"Guess that's too much
V        V V
Many students filtered back
into the gym without paying
or receiving ballots.
Soon the crowd began to
move in several directions.
Students discovered that
someone was finally ready to
take their money. Most of
them didn't know who or
Admission takers at the
foot and head of the main
stairs were mobbed by students going out and in by the
same stairs.
By 12:30 most of the students were settled in the gym,
waiting for the show to start.
Then there was a delay before the presentation of the
queen candidates.
Impatient students ~ began
to clap.
.^Finally   the   pep  meet   got
Queen candidates displayed
themes of various European
countries. They appeared in a
parade featuring playing
cards, torch bearers, wooden
shoes and even a dog.

Comedian Rolf_Harris was
master of ceremonies for the
King candidate skits.
First   candidate   to  appear,   -
Zeta Fsi's Fraser Evans, had
no  skit  to  offer.   Instead  he  .
said many do not realize the
fine - purpose   behind   Mardi
Gras. •'
He introduced Timmy, this
year's    Easter   Seal   crippled
child, pointing out the "more
serious side of this worthwhile cause."
The moving response of the
students showed Evans'-
gesture was justified. The
ovation for Timmy was long
and  thunderous.
•r      *t"      *r
Other skits ranged from the
ridiculous to the hilarious,
with take-offs on MacBeth,
Dracula, Robin Hood and the
song "Frankie and Johnny."
One group, modelling themselves on a popular singing
quartet, managed a few good-
natured digs at Harris.
Harris, along with the Chris
Cage Trio, contributed an entertaining half-hour of songs,
and a hilarious stunt he calls
his "Dislocation Twist." As
usual, he brought the house
down with his "Into-the-
Woods" routine. Page 2

rr's delight
It doesn't matter how bad an impression guest speakers
/and. performers receive of UBC as long as lots of students turn
-out to eat their lunches.
This seems to be the reasoning of people sponsoring the
Speakers and artists are often met with  irritating  and
boorish behaviour from their hosts and poorly operated equip-
.rnent which could easily be improved. Their goodwill toward
the university cannot help but drop.
Anyone attempting to listen* to an event in Brock Lounge
can attest to poor facilities. Unless one is sitting in the first
five rows the possibility of hearing over the background noise
from the gallery, cafeteria, and the hallways is remote. The
fitulty.P.A. system over which Radsoc likes to compete compounds this difficulty.
What can be done? The most obvious aid would be to post
"silence" signs in hallways etc. during an event as is done in
the auditoriunx Also there is no reason the P.A, system can--
not he improved.
This, of course, is only a partial solution. Why, for instance,
aren't the larger rooms in the Biological, Physics, and West-
brpok buildings used ?
Sponsoring club members claim student won't go that far
to hear events. It is better, they reason, to have large "captive"
audience which couldn't care less in the Brock than have a
smaller interested   audience  attending   the   event  somewhere
.else on campus.
We would be the first to admit that public speaking facili-
.ties are shameful for a university of this size.
However, with a little more confidence demonstrated by
the sponsoring clubs in their speakers and performers, more
courtesy extended by the student, body, and better use of the
existing facilities, the situation would greatly improve,
existing facilities, the situation would greatly improve.   —b.h.

Symposium poses problems
Symposium Chairman
What is a symposium?
To the ancient Greeks it
meant a drinking party or feast
accompanied by music and.
conversation. To the students
of UBC it means many things:
rain at Elphinstone, boozing
and singing, co-eds with fuzzy
sweaters, poker parties, a
chance for the Brock-types to
get away from it all, and to
some it means a Sunday school.
To well over 11,000 students
last year it meant nothing at
all, for only one hundred applied to attend the annual Academic Symposium at Parks-
*    •.    •
The  Academic   Symposium,
to be held this year at Parks-
ville  during  the   weekend  of
February 9, 10 and 11, is none
of the above. To the  student
interested in the world outside
those grey blocks at the end of
University Boulevard, the Symposium can be one of the most
interesting events of the year.
Here   is   an opportunity to
have  a real  bull-session! with
many of the faculty of Ijhe uni-s;,
versity. Some Brock-tyri^ wiliij
be there, some of them dq havei
something to say and are> peally,
interested in things other, than
the ladder to social andi commercial success. Somehow some
-students will manage to have
la drink or two, seldom more.
iiWe   have   no   prohibition in
[.'Canada.— although most of us
: wonder at times.. Some, of the
girls will show their finery. No
doubt a few will play poker.
Every day many ideas
are born over coffee or a brew
at the Fraser Arms; many are
ill-conceived and die afterward
from a lack of thought or understanding. Much is said in
order to impress others—and
yet some of it must be worthwhile.
Did you know that the Portuguese slaughtered an estimated    80,000    Angolese   this
past summer (Manchester
Guardian, July, 1961)?
How would you like to fry
under a spray of flashing napalm so thoughtfully provided
by NATO?
Did you know that Franco
couldn't have survived the winter of 1946-47 if it hadn't been
for American financial aid —
his prisoners in the grey, grim
prisons of Barcelona know it,
An editorial in The Sun tells
university professors involved
in politics to get back to their
ivory towers, yet a letter to
the editor a. few days later
asks "Where is the leadership
our universities are supposed
to provide?" Some think the
western world is going to hell
on greased skids because of a
lack of social responsibility,
and yet there doesn't appear
to be anyone on the campus
who can speak with conviction
and authority on Spengler, the
prophet of doom.

Will the answers to our perplexing , problems come from
the beer parlors, from Cordova
and J£$n, or the gilded halls
of the tjoming-out party? Must
society forever seek solutions
when the problem forces, a
showdown, usually at a time
when only one choice can be
made? Must we always attempt
to cure rather than prevent?
It seems that the universities
are the logical place for the
leadership, as opposed to fol-
lowership, that this world so
badly needs.
These questions and many
more will be raised at the Academic Symposium. The answers provided by the faculty
and the administration, in the
relaxed, informal atmosphere
at Parksville will be far more
controversial and open to discussion than those in the sometimes pedantic and rigid classroom. In other words, if you
don't  want to  get your  good
Canadian heads out of the sand,"
don't   go,   for   you   may  start
Dr. Norman Z. Alcock has
begun a one-man crusade with
his Canadian Peace Research
Institute — at least he is trying to do his share. He has
agreed to appear as the guest
speaker at the Symposium,
barring any unforeseen problems in his work. The remainder of the program appears
stimulating and should provide excellent discussion between faculty  and students.
•    •.. •
The requirements of the Academic Symposium are not difficult to satisfy. Those who
have attended previously gen- ~
erally do not attend a second
time, as only eighty students
can be accommodated and the
committee feels the opportunity should be open to as many
as possible. The only other inadmissible students are those
who have failed their last year. -
Preference is given to upper-
classmen and graduate students. Although there is no
rule that rejects first and second year students, older students will be given priority.
The students with higher marks
are favored, but if you have a
high pass and a burning desire to tell someone of your
pet idea, don't hesitate to apply. Application forms are
available at the Graduate Student Center. International
House and the AMS office.
These must be submitted by
January 26th.
The affair is quite informal; -
slacks and sweaters will be
more comfortable than suits
and skirts and more conducive
to a relaxed atmosphere. The
cost to students and faculty is
$6 for the weekend — a bargain, as over three-quarters of
the cost is born by the faculty
association, the administration,
Alumni Association and the
Alma Mater Society.
on a Christian anti-communist crusade
must men live under the threat of war?
I think that a Christian anti-
communist crusade is an idea
worthy Of our attention. You
may think that I'm talking
through my hat but I heard
about what happened at one
of the meetings of this progressive group and when I tell
you about it you'll see what I
*    *    *
It seems that the anti-communist group was holding its
weekly meeting in one of the
local churches. After the loyalty oaths had been chanted and
the names of three commies
had been revealed a strange
fellow entered the rear of the
church. He didn't seem to notice the group because he immediately fell to his knees and
began praying.
Some .of the group started to
protest that their meeting, was
in progress and that he'd have
to wait for them to finish before he could pray. Some were
even ready to kick him out
because you never know but
what this unknown fellow
might be a spy. Their leader
raised his right arm, the signal
for silence, and they listened
to the stranger's prayer.
"Dear God in heaven. There
are people starving in the
streets. The rich who have sold
their souls to the devil are not
their brother's keeper — or so
they think. The meek shall
inherit the earth, if there is
anything left after the next
*    +    *
"Oh Lord. Thou hast put
man on the earth and Thou hast
provided him aplenty. Why
then must some men starve
and others grow fat? Why
must men live under the threat
of war? Why must they compete as animals do? Why must
the inter»ational arena be a
jungle? Hast Thou forsaken us
Father? Hast Thou forsaken
The stranger continued to
pray, criticizing the rich for
not caring about the poor and
criticizing all men for not cooperating for* the common
good rather than competing for
their own good.
The group was aghast. Here
they believed that the graduated income tax was an evil
perpetrated by communist sympathizers, that the USA should
pull out of the United Nations
and cut off diplomatic relations with all socialistic countries, that freedom of enterprise (including subliminal perception advertising and trading stamp promotions) was
what God wanted them to defend at all costs, that aid to
the needy and aged from the
government deprived them of
opportunities to be charitable,
and that anyone who didn't believe in a free, Christian America was a commie or a commie dupe. But their most cherished ideal was a land free
from commie-talk. The kind

The group had heard rumors
that some stranger was frequenting local churches spouting commie-talk. Now here he
was oblivious to their existence    deliberately    subverting
their exalted purpose — to do
God's work on earth as they
saw it.
In the beginning they had
merely jailed suspected lefties
until they confessed publicly.
Lately they were forced to resort to different methods for

As the stranger rose to depart he turned to the group
and asked the leader if he
loved his enemies. The leader
immediately fell to the floor
convulsed with laughter.
Others in the group had long
ago lost their sense of humor
and they flew at the stranger.
The hammer and nails were
instantly produced and for the
first time since they started
crucifying incorrigibles, the
victim did not protest or resist. They were sure they'd
done the right thing— if they
hated anything it was cowardice.
So they left him there to
die. As they filed out, each of
them spat on the infiltraitor.
In  the   excitement    they- had..

Would Christ have been allowed to join the so-called
"Christian" anti - communist
crusade? It would be as sensible to ask if he would have
backed the Inquisition.
The few genuine Christians
I've met would almost surely
be branded communists by
these "crusaders". We should
try to stop the totalitarian
witch-hunting lunacy from
crossing the border into Canada. See the latest Reporter
magazine on what's occurring
in southern California. Only
courage and intelligence can

American mass circulation magazines are taking care of
things. For us.),- . •- ^Friday, January 19, 1962

,..> "There were, perhaps, 15 or 30 minutes here of something
' good—15 or 30 minutes of catalogued, chronological, overacted,
poorly-cast, soppy presentation of the life of Christ. Why did this
half-hour leave something with me, and I imagine with many
others who were able to think above this being just another ancient war movie?" This is a quote from a letter I have received
from Mr. Bob McDonald commenting on my review of KING OF
KINGS. Mr. McDonald's letter is too long to reproduce in whole,
but his main thesis is quite interesting. After agreeing with my
judgment of KING OF KINGS as "pure, unadulterated crap" for
most of the time, he then goes on to argue that: "I feel that the
reverence accorded to this personality (i.e. Christ), his works and
: life-actions create an impression, no matter in what surroundings
they are placed, even KING OF KINGS ... If such trash as we
have here can evoke a response, what effect would a sincere, honest approach to this story produce? . . . Could a serious Christian, possibly divinely inspired approach to a film of the life of
Christ surpass the Gospels with its forceful power? I feel yes!"
This is a very astute point that Bob McDonald has made,
^with which I entirely concur. Whether one is a Christian or not,
' whether one believes in divinely inspired "messages" or not, one
has to admit that the figure of Christ is as overwhelming in its
mystical power as any figure in recorded history, The tremendous
sense of destiny of the man, the morality and ethics of his teach-
„„ t *wm8s.-his sense of serene triumph as .his life is, fulfilled, all cpn>
« „ bme to create an effect which cannot j>e ignore^. I hope I made
this view clear in my review when I wrote: "The role of Christ
as the mystical leader of a religion that has inspired millions is
under-stressed;" and "(Jeffrey Hunter) has no more idea of the
beauty and power inherent in the Christ figure than has the scriptwriter" in addition to a number of other comments on the same
theme. I, bewailed the fact that these opportunities were lost by
the director, and that there was no real sensibility of meaning
in the whole film.
However, Mr. McDonald and I part ways when he insists that
the mere fact of having Christ in a film conclusively means that
the film must create "a hidden effect which produces a response
and leaves a feeling with the viewer." Everything in a work of
art depends ultimately on the treatment it is given, on the formal
and structural qualities which interpret the meaning. Therefore,
I cannot agree with Mr. McDonald when he writes that: "this
film . . . deserves a little more than the technical critique which
you have given it." KING OF KINGS fails in the last analysis
exactly because- of its technical (which I would call 'formal') gtruc-
,. ■ ture. It was not just the script of KING OF KINGS whi^h was
• weak, it was much more so the director's inability to interpret
his potentially very profound theme with the formal resources of
the cinema. It was his inability to utilise the resources of the camera, Ughtiag, editing rhythm and so on that resulted in the film
having nothing more than a negative impact.
Admittedly, the problems "of a feeling and reverent production of the life of Christ are great"—to quote Mr. McDonald again
—but I am convinced that a genuine artist would find it possible
to produce a very moving and sensitive portrayal of Christ. It
has been done in literautre, and there is no reason why it cannot be
achieved in the cinema. It is interesting to note that the Danish
director, Carl Theodore Dreyer. who directed DAY OF WRATH
and JEANNE O'ARC, is presently working on his conception of
the Christ story. It is more than possible that this film will fulfill
all the demands that both Mr. McDonald and I make.

Queen Elizabeth Auditorium—Thursday, Jan
Canada's oldest ballet company, the Royal style of the
Winnipeg, has adopted a_formula this season
. -which-- njust surely benefit both the company
and its'audiences. Importing two leading guest
artists from Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet, Rimma
Karelskaya and Boris Ho*»lov, has doubtless
not only given inspiration, to the Winnipeg
company's young dancers, but has insured as
well superior performances of the leading roles
in the classical ballet repertoire. Last Thursday
at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, a Vancouver
audience witnessed the obvious success of this
The Canadian choreographer Brian Mac-Donald's A Court Occasion, set to Bach's Second
Brandenburg Concerto, presented eight of the
company's leading dancers as instruments of a
"spirited, ensemble. Youthfulness and considerable technical agility united to bring far better
performances to their roles than given by their
counterparts in the orchestra pit. The-latter
made Bach's music at times sound almost atonal, so many were their mistakes.
A second ballet by MacDonald, The Darkling,
presented a contrast in mood. It tells of the love
relationship of the Darkling and her lover and
of her metamorphosis from shadow, into light.
MacDonald's choreography blends well with
the sombre quality of Britten's music in an
evocative coupling which emerges as a significant Canadian ballet. Marilyn Young and David
Shields led the company in a sensitive, capable
interpretation. ' ,     .
Sensitive in another way was the company's

SCORPIO by george crabbe—
"Editor, The Sun: Sir,
There is a fine sturdy Canadian spirit here that regards
with mixed feelings the proposed safari of a UBC professor who has been financed to
spread abroad our native culture.
We wonder how the Outer
Mongolians are likely to react
to his egghead poetry since we
ourselves don't, always get it.
Is it typically Canadian?
Like for example maple
sugar and Pauline Johnson and

Canada could use the publicity — but it should be the
right kind.
3p    *f.    Jf.
It's all too easy to make fun
of fellows like this (how many
can quote Pauline Johnson?)—
it's like laughing at the attempts of an imbecilic child to
ride a bike. This is a case for
anger, not laughter; and, just
as   in   the case   of   the  idiot
child, our anger would be directed, not at it, but at the
parent who allowed his charge
to become a public spectacle,
so here it is against The Sun
and not Lowbrow Canuck that
our indignation should be levelled. It is a fallacy that stems
no doubt from a misinterpretation of the principles of democracy, to hold that anyone
who puts pen to paper has
something worth saying; and
it's the duty of an editor to
print only those letters which
are reasonable and intelligent.
This letter I've quoted is
palpably neither. Earle Birney,
the professor alluded to, is going to the West Indies; by
equating Outer Mongolia with
the Caribbean, Canuck ife saying in effect, "all them furrin'
parts is the same to me"; is
betraying, in brief, a chauvinism of the most blatant kind.
But I won't, having used the
word "chauvinism", leave it
there. Canuck is suffering from
that smug provincialism which,
multiplied several million
times, will readily lead us to

fatuous yet corrupting as this
one would be a greater evil
than to print it.

to take the trouble to find out
more about the Canada Council, the poetry of Earle Birney,

Liberal; or a distrust of a body
(the Council) which is doing
its damnedest to raise the
standards of literacy above
those required for maximum

appears that the Players Club
will: again go on tour with a
"safe" play this spring, something by the great Noel Coward. Lee MacKenzie, among
others, is somewhat unhappy
about this arrangement, and
with good reason. The redoubtable1 scion of the PC once said
to your obtuse servant that he
thought the PC should get
hold of- a good play, eater it
into' the local competition toward the Dominion Drama
Festival, and forego the dubious privilege of carrying a potboiler to the provinces. Good
idea, replies your obdttrate
servant. With the advantages
of a readily available theatre,
interested potential actors, and
access to a good director, as
well as lots of time, the PC
would stand a.good chance to
win it all. Another advantage
is that with a local run instead
of an extended tour of the
backwoods, the PC would
reach a more sophisticated and
worthy audience. You know,
last year some editor in Mongoose Ears, B.C., wrote an editorial condemning the licentiousness of the PC for flaunting Dream Girl on the stage.

U of A student asked
to quit MR A assembly
EDMONTON (CUP)—A University of Alberta student
was expelled from the Moral Re-Armament conference in
Petropolis, Brazil last month for refusing to take up arms in
the holy war.
Bentley Le Baron, features
editor of The Gateway, was invited to attend the international MRA "Assembly of the
Americas" — halfway through
the proceedings he was sent
back to Edmonton.
"I would have been glad to
keep my mouth shut and just
listen and learn," Le Baron
said. "But it seems to be part
of their program to insist on
some sort of firm commitment
from anyone attending such a
conference. And when they realized that there was a definite
divergence of feeling in my
case, they asked me to leave.
"They were, for the most part,
quite decent and gentlemanly
about it," he added.
MRA is a world-wide "ideological offensive" against communism and various other ills
which trouble mankind. According to the late Frank Buchman,
founder of MRA, the evils in
this world stem from a failure
to live by "the four absolutes":
absolute honesty, absolute purity, absolute unselfishness, and
absolute love.
