No. 69
Meeting lacks quorum
The most important of the
proposed revisions to the AMS
constitution will go to the students for approval in the form
'of a referendum as soon as possible.
Student president Alan Cornwall said the referendum is ne
cessitated by the failure of
Thursday's general meeting to
obtain a quorum.
Issues likely to be in the referendum are the proposed
quorum decrease, eligibility
rules, re-installment of the coordinator of publications to
eouncil, and the question of
giving representation to the Rehabilitation Medicine Undergraduate Society, he said.
., Approval by 1881 students is
needed to pass the proposals by
Squalor at
UBC gates
says prof
Nearly one quarter of UBC
student population lives in conditions of semi-squalor just outside the university gates, a UBC
geography professor said Thurs-
■ day.
"If a student can't have a toilet, or a sink, or ! a stove, he's
put into a substandard area,"
> Prof. Walter Hardwick of the
geography department said, summing up the dilemma of 3,000
students living in a 100-square
block single - family dwelling
zone between Fourth and Sixteenth, Alma and Blanca.
The   figures   came   out   of   a
five - month   nose - counting of
the student body by geography
A map of the lower Fraser
Valley shows that of the several
large concentrations of students,
the biggest one is just outside
the campus—and is the one place
that self-contained suites in private dwellings are illegal.
Hardwick ridiculed the municipal failure to provide for the
University's needs: "The city
planning council can't play the
ostrich forever.
"All the city has to do is face
up to the fact there are up to 30
'transients' per block living in
some guise or another, and estimate how best to service them."
The two-family dwelling zone
being extended from Alma, the
present limit, to the gates, is
what Hardwick sees as the only
solution to the hardships students are putting up with this
"They have to live somewhere. The university can't hope
to house them on campus so
they live in what passes for
sleeping rooms," he said of the
students living west of Alma,
who have sinks, kitchen and
bathroom facilities at the risk
of breaking the strictly enforced municipal bylaws.
Only 1,011  show up;
amendments  foiled
The AMS spring general meeting failed to obtain its quorum
Only 1,011 students turned out to the Thursday meeting

EMPTY SEATS DOMINATED the spring general meeting Thursday in the Armory. Only 1,-011 students (870 short of the
quorum) showed up to watch councillors and engineers present a lively show during the long noon hour. Lack of quorum washed out proposed constitutional amendments. A
referendum containing the chief amendments will be presented to students in the near future, disappointed student
president Al Cornwall said.
The quorum requirement is
15 per cent, or 1,881 members
of the Alma Mater Society.
As a result, no business could
be conducted.
Outgoing president Alan Cornwall said the most important of
the constitutional amendments
on the meeting's agenda will go
to the students via referendum.
The meeting was opened by
outgoing president Alan Cornwall. Outgoing vice-president
Eric Ricker then proceeded to
explain the proposed "non-controversial" revisions of the AMS
Constitution to the meeting.
He then proposed the revision
of By-law 2 (5), which would
lower the quorum to 10 per cent
of the student body—about 1,300
at present.
The quorum was challenged
at this point.
Fred Fletcher, Arts 4, said it
would not only be illegal but
also highly irresponsible to deal
with these "controversial" items
without a quorum.
He added it was obvious that
there was not a sufficient number of students present and officially challenged the quorum.
This challenge killed the possibility of the issues being put to
a vote without the required number of. AMS members present.
President Cornwall then referred the "controversial" issues
to vice-president Ricker for explanation and invited discussion
of these proposed revisions.
Discussion followed on the proposed quorum decrease. Two
students spoke in favour of the
proposal while one spoke against
There was no discussion on the
proposed eligibility revision.

at meeting
A minor revolt highlighted
Thursday's spring general meeting.
Red-shirted revolutionaries led
by "Fidel Castro" stormed the
gathering in the Armory at
noon Thursday.
Bearded engineer Lawrence
Rooney delivered a fiery speech
in which he declared the end of
democracy and the beginning of
a reign of terror under the rule
"What we offer is destruction,
rape, murder, and disharmony.
"Down with peace, destroy democracy, burn the buildings of
love and mercy," Rooney shouted, j
He took his seat amid cheers
of "Engineers Si" and "Artsmen
No" while President Alan Cornwall attempted to regain control.
Twenty-five minutes after this
introduction two councillor
wandered in and took their seats
en the platform.
Ten minutes later the two engineering presidents found their
way into the building and sat
with their clan.
- The brief discussion period
was interspersed by the silent
strikes of the engineers as they
abducted unwary councillors
from the back of the stage.

Geography  club   reports
Traffic bottlenecks waste student time
Ten to 15 minutes are wasted
every morning in the bottlenecks called north-west and
south-west Marine Drive and
University and Chancellor Boulevards.
The answer to this, says UBC's
geography club on looking over
their map of student population
distribution, is to improve existing access roads, plus Acadia and
Sixteenth, which have been long
on the planning-boards.
A full 33 per cent of the student body comes to UBC along
narrow, twisting, two-lane South
west Marine Drive at 30 miles
per hour.
University Boulevard gets 36
per cent, Chancellor has 20 per
cent and Northwest Marine lags
Ten students per square block inhabit shaded areas
with ten per cent, according to
figures amassed by pollings in
large classes.
Immediate solutions the geographers suggest are,
• the Administration should
see the highways department
about improving Southwest Marine: curving sharp turns and
increasing the 30 miles per hour
speed limit;
• development of the present
Acadia Lane into the back of
Acadia Camp to feed into A and
C lots, and would link up
with Twenty-fifth, Twenty-ninth
and Thirty-third.
• five-cent university loop bus
service to run either down to
Trimble or to Alma, to service
the enormous university population. Page 2

Letters to the Editor
Thursday we witnessed one of the greatest displays of irre-
sponsibilty of the year.. The AMS spring general meeting failed—by
more than 800 persons — to produce a quorum. And yet council
president Alan Cornwall, apparently with backing from most of
the council, was prepared to start the meeting and conduct the
society's business, in direct-contravention-of its constitution!
And there were some very serious matters to come under discussion. Council had planned to ask the general meeting to approve
the addition of two more members to council — the co-ordinator
; of publications and the representative from the school of rehabilitation medicine. Such moves could easily have resulted in opening
Ithedoors for other schools to have representatives on council or in
ith4 ■•tiH&ateak groups—as in the case of the publications co-ordinator
-Vgetting back on council.
■ Increasing council size could have serious repercussions, and
, yet eounjcil was psreBared to ram this move through, quorum or not.
Mr. Cornwall kniws full well the changes can be made by referendum.
^l^^.'Tberei'^fire.^'bti^'serioOs recommendations. One would change
,th!e ^uorvim for the general meting. In fact, our ex-student presi-
,'denti Sir. Cornwall seemed to -be prepared to have the meeting vote
:;to lower the quorum, thinking no- doubt that under the lowered
I quorum, a quorum would be present. Such was not the case. Even
tader. the. proposed new quorum 1,250 students would have had
tto be in the Armory. There were only 1,011.
/      Another recommendation would have changed the method of
selection of The Ubyssey editor-in-chief, so as to give council more ,
: control over the appointment. This move could eventually  end
up "with The Ubyssey being run by a council-controlled man.
And yet our council, that group of students which has been
spouting "irresponsibility" about many of its subsidiary organizations, were prepared to push these moves through.
Well, that council is gone, and we hope the new one will be
a little more responsible in their actions than the old one.
Sure,   butt
What kind of cigaret-butt-disposer are you?
Bo you grind your butts into the floor with your heel? Do
you butt your cigarets on the nearest object and then nonchalantly
flick them into the air? Or do you strive to be original by looking
for' a hidden crevice in which to stuff the crushed crumbs of
tobacco, paper and/or filter?
■ Perhaps1 you are really different and use one of the conveniences specifically provided for has-been cigarets, viz. an ashtray.
Maybe you've wondered why, in this "tuum est" world of
ours, there is a rule (believe it Or not) against smoking in classrooms
in the newer buildings.
The reason is simple—as simple as the stained, burnt linoleum
and wooden floors, victims of repeated cigaret-butt attacks.
If students (and professors) must smoke in class, why can't
they butt their cigarets on the soles of their shoes? It would be
the1 same thing as grinding the butt into the floor as far as the
soles of the shoes were concerned.
And the floor and the janitors would be more than grateful.
So smokers, flick your cigaret ashes where you will but please,
when you've finished your cigaret, end its life in an honorable
fashion—like in an ashtray. MG
Not lost!

Dear Sir:
I am disturbed by the mention of my name in a recent
(Feb. 13) Ubyssey article entitled "Lost NFCUS trio puzzle
UBC office".
I would like to point out that
well in advance of the NFCUS
National Seminar I informed
the UBC NFCUS Committee of
my intention to spend a year
doing research in Florida before returning to UBC, and received their consent to attend
the seminar anyway. Also, I
notified the National Secretariat of the situation. After the
seminar I submitted the evaluation requested by NFCUS. In
view of these facts I feel that
I have acted in good faith with
NFCUS, and have not violated
any regulations. Furthermore,
I hardly regard myself as
"lost" since the Registrar, the
Alumni Association, the Graduate Student Association, and
the Zoology Department all
have my present address.
My only regret is that, by
being temporarily absent from
the campus, I have not been
able to promote the 1962 National Seminar. The National
Seminar is a most excellent enterprise to which NFCUS devotes a great deal of effort and
a large part of its national budget. The delegate receives both
a stimulated outlook on topics
of current importance, and a
broader knowledge of the other
Canadian provinces and universities. I would strongly advise
all interested students to apply
to attend the 1962 SeminaF, and
I can assure them that they
will find it, as I did, a very
worthwhile experience.
Yours truly,
(1 G.S.)

Dear Sir:
Scene 1, Time 2:30 p.m.,
Tuesday, Mar.  13, 1962.
Arrived at UBC campus, and
proceeded to Lot "B". Searched
diligently for parking place
near front of the lot. Quest unsuccessful. Forced to rear of
lot. Finally found space at end
of Lot "B". It was a small
space. Question: will my Morris Minor fit, or must I go still
further back? Lined car up
with space. Surveyed situation
carefully. Decision: five inches
to spare. I would make it!!!
Manouvred for twenty minutes. Finally succeeded in
parking my car. Next problem:
getting out. By concentrating,
and squeezing, managed to survive battle. Left car at 2:45,
and trekked the two miles back
to the Library.
Scene II, Time 4:10 p.m.,
Same day, same scene.
Returned to car. Spied small
white note on its window. A
love letter? No! Upon venturing forth, I discovered a little
white      sticker      which     proclaimed:
Thanks for taking two Parking Spaces, I had to park two
blocks away. You stupid, inconsiderate, etc. . . .
Feeling  extremely  dejected,
rejected,   and  furious!!  I  sped
home to write this tale. Surely
this vulgarity is not necessary
to get the point across.
A note to my sticker-licker:
If this notice you really must
Please observe

Magazine needs members
"Exchange" magazine, which describes itself as a Canadian Review of Contemporary Thought, is desperately in need
of new subscnoers.
The magazine, described by Hugh MacLennan as the most
"mature publication for the general reader of intelligence we
have yet seen in Canada," has in its short life developed a
distinctive format of discussion, review and litreature for the
discriminating reader.
Works by Irving Layton, Norman Mailer, Brock Chis-
holm, Hugh MacLennan and others have appeared in the magazine.
Separatism, nuclear weapons and NATO unity, and "Philosophy Without God" are topics appearing in the first few
Response to the effort, which has just completed its third
issue, has been excellent but more subscribers and advertising
are necessary if the venture is to survive. It has just been reprieved by a $4,000 Canada Council grant.
NFCUS is helping to get students interested in the magazine. The subscription fee is only $4.00 for 12 issues. The address is Exchange, 1559 Pine Ave. W., Montreal 25, P.Q.
"Cripes! What a lousy movie
Cripes, I went to a lousy
movie last night. It was called
On The Beach. I mean even the
title is stupid. It's all about this
big war and the end: of the
world. Everyone's always saying that the world's going to
end. It never does. Anyways,
everyone ends up getting radiation sickness or something and
they all live it up till the last
minute when the damn show
finally ends. What a show. It
killed me. It really did.
*   *   *
I mean what's so bad about
radiation sickness? You'd think
it was communicable or something the way people talk about
it. I mean there are lots worse
diseases. Cripes—leukemia and
cancer are pretty well fatal too,
but no one seems to get riled
up about them. What's a little
nausea anyways? Anyways,
what's there to worry about?
They showed all these people
lined up in the movie getting
these pills that would kill them
fast: That killed me. It really
did. People are always taking
pills. What a bunch of crap. I
mean if you're gonna dTe you
might as well live it up. But
I've never died so I can't really
*   *   *
Anyways, this radiation sickness. I mean, what's wrong
with losing your hair and
coining up blood? You gotta
lose your hair sometime! And
unless you-re a haemophiliac,
what's wrong with bleeding?
There's at least a million ways
to die and this movie's gotta
pick radiation sickness. I mean
even the bubonic plague would
have been more exciting.. At
least it's communicable!
Ahd why do they always
show these guys sitting in the
middle of the road and the cops
come and throw them into vans
or even jail? Cripes! Haven't
those guys got anything better
to do than carry stupid signs
around and sit in the middle
of the road? Why aren't they
out trying to earn an honest
living like everyone else? What
a bunch of phonies. They kill
me. They really do.
*   *   *
Well, I gotta go home now.
My mother always makes me
come home an hour before cur
few. What a bunch of crap. And
those stupid sirens. Can't they
turn the damn things off? I
mean, three tests a day is stupid. I really mean it. And those
bombs. It's a good thing they're
always just testing them. What
a mess if they drop one in the
wrong place. Anyways, they say
an accident won't happen till
1970 or something. Cripes, I'll
be about a thousand years old
by then.
*   *   *
Anyways, the hero of this
movie said you could have radiation sickness for days and
not even know it. I mean what
you don't know can't hurt you.
That's what they always say.
Well, I gotta go now. Mom insists on me taking about a million readings a day. You'd
think the war'd already started
what with the milk supply cut
off and these stupid radiation
readings every day. Maybe we
won't even need a lousy war to
kill us all off. Maybe we'll do
it just testing!

NDP fit to  be tied
in  Mock   Parliament
UBC  model parliament's
Thursday from almost certain
members hadn't dressed up.
Tieless New Democratic members were asked to leave t h e
House by speaker Graham Parker, after a Liberal member had
crossed the flooi, giving the opposition a majority.
But when the tieless members
got up to leave, the rest Of- the
NDP bench arose, too, and left.
NDP spokesman said the number that the opposition would
have lost because of lack of proper dress would have prevented
them from toppling the government, anyway.
He said the party's members
decided that tbey were "poor
but honest workmen" who could
not afford to buy ties.
The small scale parliament
opened this year's session at 7:30
Wednesday night in Brock Hall.
In spite of the lack of mahogany panelling and leather upholstery, the official opening
ceremonies lost none of their
richness and significance.
It was officially opened with
the reading of the Speech from
the Throne, by the governor-
general. ^Bills for the current
Session were given the first reading and debate began.
All remarks are ostensibly addressed to the speaker but this
barely slows the flying mud.
The NDP member from Koot-
enay quotes from Shakespeare
referring to a Liberal government   as   "when   madmen   lead

cries of "shame!"
The Conservative member
from Toronto-Eglington decries
"the muddle-headed thinking by
the junior politicians of the bow-
tie set (Liberals)."
The Liberal member from
Pontiac-Temiseamingue, "en la
belle province de Quebec," arises and objects vehemently to a
misspelling of his constituency
in the seating plan.
And so it goes, from serious
to comic and back again, the nation's future is decided in miniature — at least until Friday
night in Brock when model parliament closes its doors for another year.

Verdi's Rigoletto, like the other operas
of his middle period, suffers to a certain
extent from orchestration and melodies
reminiscent of an organ grinder. So too
some of its plot situations lack plausibility even for such a medium as opera.
It is not too difficult to accept the idea
of a licentious duke's becoming enamored
of the innocent daughter of his own
wicked jester. But when that jester is also
a loving father who keeps his daughter
cloistered from public attention and ignorant of his own profession, even the
opera enthusiast's credulity is strained.
Yet Verdi has been so skillful in fusing
his music and dramatic situations that
their separate weakenesses materially lessen in the combination. One need only
consider the fourth act quartet wherein
the tender adresses of the Duke, the coquetry of a willing conquest, the jester's
cries for vengeance and the heartbreak
of his daughter blend in beautiful harmony to appreciate the degree of communication possible in Verdi's skillful
wedding of music and drama.
The most striking feature of the current Vancouver Opera Association presentation is also its fusion of parts. Where
individual components can be criticized,
praise certainly is due the high degree of
overall achievement in this production.
Conductor Mario Bernardi led a well
paced performance, sustaining the dramatic surge necessary to focus attention
©n the continuity of its imperfect plot.
While the orchestral volume of Act I in
the opening night performance obscured
some of the singing, such was not the
case during subsequent acts where balance seemed better all around. The
chorus, graced by natural looking costumes, demonstrated good discipline and
cohesion. Their stage movements, thanks
RIGOLETTO, presented by the Vancouver Opera Society, Queen Elizabeth  Auditorium,   opened   March   8.
to Irving Gullman's usual competent direction, also looked reasonably natural.
As expected, Gail McCance's scenery,
particularly for the last two acts, was
effective without being elaborate. More-
imagination could have been used in the
background, however, and in the synchronization of lightning flashes and
music in the final act.
To the key role of the hunchback jester,
NaPoleon Bisson brought a huge, resonant baritone whose sheer size unbalanced
the duets with his daughter Gilda. In his
great scene confronting the courtiers
who have abducted his daughter, Rigo-
letto must project a whole gamut of emotions from fury to supplication and despair. Though Mr. Bisson showed force-
fulness both vocally and dramatically in
his expressions of anger, his more lyrical
passages suffered from less control and
frequently   excessive   vibrato.   While   his
interpretation was convincing, he" could
have infused much more intensity"-to the
passages following "Cortigiani vil* razza
dannata" as he showed himself able to do
in the brilliant "Si Vendetta."
Reri Grist's Gilda was understanding
and sympathetic. Her simple stage movements ably complemented a pure, clear
voice. Fortunately her Caro Nome, although its trills were not all perfectly executed, emerged as a joyous outpouring
of simple love rather than a mere display
of coloratura.
As has become conventional, John Alexander interpreted the Duke of Mantua
as a lighthearred, irresponsible devotee of
pleasure rather than a deliberate villain.
Like the rest of the cast he acted his arias
instead of merely singing them. His robust tenor improved in clarity and control as the opera progressed, and like his
colleagues, he coupled good projection
and a sense of balance in the famous quartet.
The lesser roles were all more or less
well handled but two merit special note.
Richard Cross revealed in the role of the
assassin Sparafucile an exceedingly deep
sonorous voice which ideally captured
this character's malevolence. Elaine Bon-

in which acting is as important as singing,

happy as pigs out of tish
Went to hear the bad guys
on Friday with a Tish-view and
a jaundiced ear. Was surprised
to be amused by and really interested in the poetry that was
read. It was even better than
the TISH reading the week previous, and deservedly earned a
more responsive audience.
So Bowering says they sprawl,
but it was the kind of sprawl
that pigs do in mud, which
means it was FREEDOM. And
freedom after six months of
listening to the weird restrictions of voicing, the useless
poems- that go about establishing a metaphysic, or a poetic,
or of all things, a locale. After
six months of senseless enumeration of things that is calculated to bring about the end
of masterpieces and the beginning of testimonial; after six
months of barren poetasting
and limited ear-range, these
bad guys looked good. I submit
that the squares have more
freedom within their old-fashioned laws than TISH has within its new and true Black
Mountain - WCW dogmas, and
thereby the squares have given
themselves  the permission   to
do the things that are the
things of poetry.
TISH stands for the repudiation of creativity, which isn't
a bad thing to stand for, except
that TISH poets seem to think
that EVERYBODY  should  re-

pudiate creativity, and that
isn't so. Poetry is big enough
for many things, and if you
squinch it down, poetry stops
being poetry, and if the TISH
people don't start soon to listen
to other voices besides their
own, they will endanger their
personal rights and permissions, lose the poem in prejudice and put themselves behind
bars that can't be escaped, and
their poetry will be denied to
Bromige read first a poem
that was a little too literary.

of any dark-suited French
Canadian talking about his politics or his art, or both, Theriault shook his fists: "I never
write for critics, I write for myself!"
Across from Theriault, Robertson Davies shifted his great
weight. "Intimidating. Critics
tell the writer what he, the
writer, is interpretating. A critical system used to judge
other's works may prove entertaining and enlightening for
the critic, but it is no picnic
for the writer he pushes
around." Davies' strong, heavy-
voice made it known, however,
that he was neither intimidated
nor pushed:
"I am tired of being told 'significant' things which I never
intended in my works. The critic should-wait until the writer
is dead."
Milton Wilson, editor of Canadian Forum, gave an editorial appraisal. "Well, you write
for the public; you must presume to open yourself-to misinterpretations. The critic or
the editor reads as a reader,
seldom as a writer."

the   mused-up   mess
Last weekened the Players Club produced the violent AFRIKAANER by Larry Kent, and the Vancouver Little Theatre
ran Connie Irvine's one-scener, THE
LAUGH at the far and gloomy York Theatre. Both were first plays by as yet amateur writers, both were amateur, but both
were a spermwhale of a lot more interesting than any exhumaiion of Noel Coward or Clifford O'Dets.
I saw the AFRIKAANEH first at noon
in the UBC auditorium on March 8. The
author is the kind who likes to use a
pen nib an inch wide, and show us life
in the raw. If any cooking was done, it
was done by the director, Richard Irwin.
Tr,3 curtain opened on a set that seemed over-ambitious for a work a half-hour
long. It was an almost surreal representation of a Johannesburg gaol, with flats
zooming off on giddy angles and doors
reaching sauve-qui-peut-ion heights. The
wildly audacious lighting and soundmak-
ing added to the symboioquacious presentation of a story that could have better
withstood   a   realistic   handling.
And the actors were fine. Katy Robertson, who stepped into the part only a
few days before the performance, was the
best thing in the show. Playing a beautiful
(which she was) mulatto prostitute
brought in on a South Africa apartheid
immorality charge with an Englishman
called Johnson, she was the cat-spitting,
laughing, hip-jabbing sexy girl of life that
the playwright invented. Unfortunately
her coloring was inadequate: the symbolic
contrast was missing as she stood beside
Johnson, her makeup the same color as
LEE MACKENZIE was Johnson, and
he played the role with all the snivelling
and crying and blustering required of him,
and then some. As bearded bombardier
Mike Matthews said afterwards, Macken-
bawdier scenes may not have disappoint-
be taught step by step.
The lead part, the morality ensnarled
police sergeant with the suspiciously suggestive name Hendrik, was played adequately by high school (?) actor, Allan
Scarfe. His voice, his stance, and his sheer
listening were right in key with Irwin's
offreal realization of the play. But his
hands too often waved around the stage,
giving one the impression of a glutted
albatross desperately trying to get into
the air.
BETTY HALL as th* older prostie,
quite at home in the sparse cell, was seen
for the first time by these eyes, and we
hope to see her some more. Tho her voice
went for a vacation on her longer speeches, her body never did.
CLINT SOLOMON made his first appearance on our local stage too, and his
was as well a rewarding one, if only for
the splendid voice he has. He played one
of the men Larry Kent doesn't like—the
African version of the butt-bussing Uncle
Tom, and he played an old man as well.
His portrayal seemed to bespeak more
stage experience than he claims, though
at times he forgot that his body should
belong to a work-crippled old man and
not to a music-responding young dancer,
which Solomon really is.
SOTT DOUGLAS, as the young city
bred police officer, reminded me of nothing so much as Scott Douglas the young
city bred loafer of the fail production.
Luckily his stage personality fitted the
part, and things went smoothly, except
when he and Scarfe made the departing
of Douglas to his beat sound more like
Verdi than Kent.
DIRECTOR IRWIN got a lot out of his
cast, as the kind reviewer always finds
himself saying. The only major flaw was
probably the fault more of his writer, that

by Richard Irwin; UBC auditorium.

being the long central part of the play
where the visual gives way to speechifying, and we have the spectacle of the
sergeant pacing around his tiny office as
if blocking were a matter of staying on
the move, and motivation a matter of
finding a new place to move to.
AFRIKAANER was the first production of this kind by the Players Club. I
feel that they are to be commended for
their energy and encouraged to continue
the search for talent and locus.
Moving from the groin to the groan
of a generation that is lost and won't be
found anywhere, we find ourselves similarly lost in a balcony of the York Theatre
where the VLTA workshop attempted to
lose us all in two nights of auto-neuroti-
cism called simply and inauspiciously
"Three Original One-Act Plays." One of
these was The Laugh, seen by your obscene correspondent the cold in the nose
night of March 10.
A study in the non sequitur, The Laugh
is an anti-story about two girls who live
in a non-existent girls' dorm somewhere in
the middle of nothingville. One of the
girls is a neurotic emptyhead with nice
gams and hairdo who keeps sprouting
mendacious stories about her scintillating
love affairs. The other is a self-conscious
ragbag who desperately tries to compensate for her laziness by convincing herself
that she is an artist of some kind — any
kind. The key to her ploy is the Dylan
Thomas record she plays, the only one she
has, the kind of response to a poet that
would make the poet belch.
KAY   TAYLOR   was   the   workshop
director, and she is to be commended
guardedly for getting the playlet on the
stage, but for little more. I am sure that
her conception of the characters was a
compromise   between   traditional   VLTA
fluff and Connie Irvine's less rational but
saner viewpoint. As the playwright herself said, the thing had no form, and this
is true. Written on paper, it had at least
vestiges of form, these fulcrumed on the
realization that we saw a futile but pitilessly pitiful battle between phony and
phony. But Miss Taylor tried to give us
the form one woujd associate with an Ian
Thorne propoduction, and form became
like an unelasticized bra.
RITA KELLY, who played Kriss the
kissable, was visually yummy. One wanted to put a wad of cotton in her mouth
and just admire her with the eyes, or
whatever. But she knifed the playwright
in the side when she opened her uncot-
toned mouth and warbled an irrelevant
mid-Atlantic accent. She did not know
what she was supposed to do with her
character; but she made up for that in
part anyway, by demonstrating that she
knew what to do with her body. The body
had a lot more potential in any case, I
said to the person beside me, who was also
leaning forward in his seat.
ARLENA CHASE, as the mucky Michelle, was visually crummy, but at first, I
thought, not crummy enough. Maybe this
was because the director or the actress
thought we should SYMPATHIZE with
her. Hah! VLTA verisimilitude of t h e
jungled jaundiced eye. Miss Chase seemed
better to know what to do with her part,
being the would-be but too lazy artist, yet
seeming to be serious about it, too.
JAMIE REID'S was the best realized
part. Ee didn't have to say anything,
which is a real acting job for Mr. Reid—
he merely walks on the stage at one point,
the symbolic I guess mysterious dashing
is he real male suitor. Dressed in black
with cane and perfect grooming, a junior
size Playboy ad in stark black and white,
he saunters onto the stage, pokes lazily
around and walks off with a bottle of
pickles. While Xvlichelle talks. This was
the best scene of the play, largely because
it was visual, and you didn't pay much
attention to what Michelle was saying.
But that was the flaw of the number—
it was not visually interesting, nothing
much happened outside of the talk, and
the talk was not interesting enough to
make up for it, as it is in, say, The Bald.
Soprano. But this is not the Theater of
the Absurd, so comparisons of this sort
carry only the jockey's weight.
THE LAUGH was adjudicated into the
regional one-act festival playdowns, winning over the other two productions of the
night. It's too bad it can't meet the Afrik-
aaner in the finals, but the latter can't
make it because of technical problems inflicted upon it by director al whimsy.
The mere fact thai original and young
CBC-free plays are being incubated hereabouts  is  a  refreshing   sign,   after  all.

UBC puts best forward
Three of UBC's top gymnasts travel to Sacramento
'his week end for the Western

Tones, and Joe Marchand to
nake the trip.
The meet is the last for UBC

Last week,  in  the  Pacific
erthwest Championships, he
was nosed out by only two
points by University of Washington's Bob Hall for the individual championship. Gannon placed first in vaulting
and in free exercises.
A 22-year-old physical education student, on his second
year with the team, Gannon's
outstanding performances have
already won him his letter in
gymnastics. He was also chosen team captain this year.
Jones, also in his second year
with the team, has turned in
some outstanding performances lately. In the Northwest
Championships, Jones tied
with Gannon for first place in
the free exercises. He won his
letter this year.
Rounding   out  the   trio   is
Marchand, who is making   a
comeback after winning his

Meeting fails
Bernie Papke, co-ordinator of
activities, and treasurer Malcolm
Scott, both spoke against admitting the RMUS on the
grounds that the society does
not have sufficient students to
warrant representation on council (it has only 19 members).
A member of the RMUS stated
that although this is the society's first year, the present stu-
jJeitt vgdyejnment system is not
based on representation by population and that it is only democratic that his society be
represented on council.
At this point, a representative
of the Science Undergraduate
Society offered on behalf of the
SUS to take the RMUS "under
the wing" of the SUS until such
time as the new society had
graduates and a greater membership.
A member of the RMUS declined the offer.
Incoming president Doug Stewart then introduced the seven
Honorary Awards winners.
They are Jim Meekison, Grad
Studies 1; Fred Fletcher, Arts 4;
Peter Haskins, Law 2; Barbara
Bennett, Arts 3; Beverly Clarke,
Comm. 3; Dean Feltham, Comm.
3; and Tom Nisbet, Agr. 3.

In the melee after the meeting incoming president Doug
Stewart was heard to say as he
was bodily hauled out: "If Sharker- ~«ih';t^e carried, so can I—I
demand equality."
Ijbysjjey photographer Ted
Ross /^s mistaken for the paper's editor-in-chief elect and before he could explain the situation, was swimming in the engineer's portable pond.
The genuine item, Keith Bradbury, followed Ross a few seconds later. Outgoing editor Roger
McAfee, was already swimming
— clad only in bathing trunks.
