■AUS exec apologize
for papers content
The executive of the Agricul-|
tuxal     Undergraduate     Society
said Thursday it wished to apologize for any offence caused by
this year's Moobyssey.
Aggie president Tom Nisbet
said: "It was not our intention
to "offend the sensibilities of our
readers. It is unfortunate that
neither the executive nor myself saw the copy before it went
to press; however, it was the
responsibility of the ATJS execu-;
tive and we fully acknowledge j
this." |
Following is the text of a let
ter   issued by  the  AUS executive.
Force necessary
in Goa -• Phiipoff
By KRISHNA SAHAY
Indian   liberation   of Goa  by
circe was unavoidable and ne-
essary,    former    Liberal    MP
Mmore Philpott said Thursday.
"I'm sorry that India had to
se  her  army to  complete  the
' beration of the Indian subcon-
nent, but it was "forced to do
m> by the stubbornness of a
upid, fascist dictator," he said.
Philpott. speaking to the India
students' Association, said it is
^ident that Portuguese Prefer    never    intended    to  quit
Goa.
UN  MOTION
The UN passed a resolution
sking for dissolution of colo-
lialism in general, and Goa was
one of the places specifically
Mentioned, but Portugal paid no
heed, Philpott said.
"Any reasonable student of
history would agree that Portugal allowed Nehru and India
no choice," he said.
Philpott said it was impossible
to agitate peacefully in pursuance of the policies laid down
by Gandhi, for the Portuguese
would allow no democratic
action.
"How do you agitate against a
government which allows no
democracy, no free speech and
no peaceful action," Philpott
asked.
FEW KILLED
Philpott said fewer people
were killed in the Goa action
than were killed in Canada in
traffic accidents during the
Christmas holidays. "This the
Western press didn't notice," he
said.
Admits   Hughes   settles
traffic   claims   on   own
By KEN WARREN
Dr. Malcolm McGregor, vice-chairman of the campus parking committee, admitted Thursday that building and grounds
superintendent Tom Hughes "might well have" settled campus
traffic appeals on his own.
He contended, though that this does not mean the affair is
"off color".
McGregor said the appeal
board is set up at the discretion
of the parking committee and
has had as few as two members
grant  "obvious appeals."
He said Mr. Hughes has decided appeals to be granted
with Dr. A. J. Wood, chairman
of the parking committee, in
the past and the docket of November, examined by The Ubyssey Thursday is likely such an
example.
FIVE GRANTED
The docket was the list of
appeals for November on ■which
five were granted before it appeared at the appeal board. Opposite the granted appeals was
"allowed by Mr. T. Hughes".
McGregor said if Hughes
acted on his own it was only
because the appeals were so
obvious they needed no consultation. He said as head of building and grounds Hughes has in-
Consultant coming
Recently-hired student union
building consultant Porter Butts
will spend four days on the
campus  next week.
Butts, director of the student
union building at the University
Of Wisconsin, will visit UBC
from Thursday to Saturday.
Butts last year said his standard lee for a visit is $100 per
day for conference time, $50 per
day for travelling time, plus
trip expenses.
The executive of the Agriculture Undergraduate Society on
behalf of the society wishes to
apologize to the students, faculty, and alumni of the University of British Columbia for the
poor taste and bad manners
exhibited in our annual publication, "The Moobyssey".
Proper executive control was
not exercised in the production
of this edition and the executive
of the Agriculture Undergraduate Society takes full responsibility for not doing so. The unfavorable publicity with respect
to the nature of the forthcoming Farmers' Frolic is definitely
misleading.
It is to be emphasized that
Alma Mater Society regulations
with respect to liquor will be
strictly enforced, both by the
Agriculture Undergraduate Society and Discipline Committee
of the Alma Mater Society. Persons not complying with ibis request will be refused admittance.
We deeply regret offending
the student body and embarrassing both ourselves and members
of our faculty.

"Several are unfounded," he
said. "In my opinion MacLean

MacLean made his charges at

should not be judged by students." '":".
He said he found it hapl to\
believe that faculty members

objection is to students judging

Classics head says
Hughes judge on sub-court
By PAT HORfeOBIN
Tom Hughes, buildings and
grounds superintendent, b e -
comes part of a "sub-court" to
the parking appeal court before every appeal court sitting.
As such, he can Catch obvious errors in conviction, Dr.
Malcolm McGregor pointed
out.
Hughes works, says McGregor, with the approval of"
traffic committee chairman A.
J. Wood.
*   *   *
The parking appeal board,
McGregor explained,   is flex
ible. Its members (faculty
members of the traffic committee) are given discretionary powers in handing down
rulings. A change in its jurisdiction was recently made.
A minute was passed at the
last traffic committee meeting
stating students would not
rule on faculty cases. The
minute grew out of faculty
complaints at a faculty meeting.
The result is the traffic committee, with student members
not voting, hearing faculty
cases.
"It's  going on  right  now,"
said McGregor, referring to
the separation of the two
courts: one for faculty and one
for students.
*   *   *
There are four committees,
each one responsible to a higher  and   the   highest   directly
responsible to the president.
At bottom is Hughes' "sub-
court". Next comes the appeal
court (now to deal solely with
student cases), with the succeeding traffic committee
(now faculty's court) in turn
responsible to the president's
administrative committee on
campus development. Whew! Page 2

Anderson said the scholarship
offers students an opportunity
to study at other Canadian universities, and to improve their
knowledge of Canada. Tuition
fees are waived by the university which the student chooses.
Anderson said applicants
must be members of NFCUS,;
under 25 years of age, have been
in residence in Canada for at'
least two years, and have a second class standing.
Additional information may
be procured from either Anderson or the university.
Molson's and money entourage
creativity in campus writers
Taking a cue from Kierkegaard's inspiring 'In Vino Veritas' (In Wine there is truth), Molson's is sponsoring the
annual National Federation of Canadian University Students
literary contest.
Deadline for the contest is Feb. 1, and according to
NFCUS secretary Mary-Lee Magee the emphasis will be on
poetry.
Miss Magee said only two entries are in as yet but those
students who have expressed intentions of entering the contest are mainly concerned with poetry.
Miss Magee said students in creative English classes are
welcome to submit any material; prose, essay or short story,
that is already written.
"We do not expect people to compose their work solely
for the contest," she said.
A total of $450 is being offered in prize money this year.

WORDS

> I'm curious to know what
goes on around this glorious
campus of ours.
Only a select few are acquainted with happenings in
the remote areas — the Theological Colleges, the Turkey
House, the Anatomy Hut — to
name but three.
;. Even many things which
transpire in the more populated parts of campus are unknown to most. A pity, in a
way, because often these events
are amusing, interesting, and
sometimes even newsworthy.
. I think it would be fun to see
what some of these items are,
and I'm sure there are plenty.
But I need your help in this
worthy project!

If you hear anything, see
anything to do with someone,
something, let me know.
Either: jot down the information on a piece of paper and
drop it into my pigeon-hole in
The Ubyssey office, basement

your name and phone number
so I can reach you for further
details if necessary.

leave your name and number"
so I can call you back.
Let's show the world that we
aren't as lifeless as we appear,
that UBC is actually seething
with intrigue, and things.

It seems that someone on the
executive of the campus Communist Club failed Russian at
Christmas. Hmmm . . . Overheard in Brock: cute young

Council's motion to congratulate The Ubyssey was passed
unanimously; council's motion
to congratulate editor Roger

For some reason or other, B

Up this morning and off to the
village square where I did chance
to overhear a group of young"
wenches as thev talked. And one
did say to another. "PIZZARAMA

And a third did have occasion to
ask of the first, '"Forsooth, what
is this 'I'IZZARAMA" you talk of?
Is it an inn, or a foreign disease,
or a new dance, or maybe a radical   undergarment?"
Then the first w^neh did proceed
to explain that this place-was a
public house wherein no juice,
taken to mean alcoholic beverages,
was served hut where one could
imbibe *n tremendous foaming
tankards of a new drink—Root
Beer. Also she talked of a food,
said to be of Roman origin —
PIZZA. This baffling me. I desired to find out more about this
new food—being somewhat of an
epicurean   myself.
And so to this place called PIZZARAMA where 1 did find, to my
surprise, a real gas of a place—
which did swing—mightily. For
here was a groovy pub wherein
a wild combo did play upon the
banjo, the pianoforte, and other
assorted instruments. And the
food served, heing strange to my
palate, was wondrously fragrant
in aroma, and exotic in taste. I
immediately became addicted to

Letters to the Editor
Finally1.
I
Well we've finally got some statement of university parking administration policy. Whether we like H or not at least
•we've got it. Now to have a closer look at it.
, Under the present system, Jolly Tommy, the superintendent of buildings and grounds, gets together with the
head of our,parking committee, Professor Wood and the two
weed out the "obvious" appeals to be allowed. Very efficient.
Jolly Tommy can go through the cases on his own, it
appears, as long as he contacts the head of the parking committee immediately afterwards. Even more efficient.
Those appeals not allowed are then streamed — faculty
appeals going to the parking committee, headed by Prof.
Wood and student appeals to the parking conviction appeal
board. The student on the parking committee has no vote
when it comes to judging the faculty member.
Two students sit on the appeal board which hears student
cases. Any faculty member of the parking committee can
apparently sit on the appeal board, therefore the number of
judges may vary according to varying conditions. Apparently
tiiere is no minimum number of judges required for the sitting to be held.
Jolly Tommy's court is responsible to the parking committee. The appeals board seems to be responsible to the same
group. The parking committee is in turn responsible to the
president's administrative committee on planning and development.
The Ubyssey would like to thank Dr. Malcolm McGregor
for his help in straightening out the jumbled lines of responsibility of the various committees and boards.
Our sympathy
The Agricultural Undergraduate Society has apologized
to the readers of their Moobyssey. They have accepted the
responsibility for a publication which has been considered by
some to be in poor taste.
For this they deserve credit. Tom Nisbet, Agriculture
president, and his executive are to be commended, not only
for their conduct after this fact had been brought to their
attention, but also for the freedom they allowed the editor of
their paper.
This may sound odd in the face of the present apology
they have issued for their publication, but we are sure
they realized it was necessary to allow their editor every
freedom. They were following the UBC tradition as practiced
for many years—that of student autonomy. Even though The
Moobyssey has come under fire we feel the AUS did the right
thing. It takes responsibility to breed  greater  responsibility.
If the editor of The Moobyssey made an error in judgment, then he is joining every student, faculty member and
administrator, who have all made similar errors. He has
demonstrated he is human.
The AUS have demonstrated their good faith in promptly
acknowledging their responsibility in the affair and publicly
apologizing for any embarrassment the publication caused.
We know the staff of the Moobyssey were trying only to
be humorous and entertaining in an unfamiliar medium, and
they have our sympathy.
Poor reporting?
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Why did the editors of the
Ubyssey devote 20 out of 71
column inches of the front
page of the Jan. 9 edition to
reporting the speech of the
Consul General of the Republic of China in Vancouver?
This speech, by a representative of a government well
known to be oppressive and
dictatorial to the Formosan
people, was made to students
at a panel discussion on the
Far East, Monday. Two other
members of the panel who were
given equal time to speak and
who in my opinion said much
more than Mr. Che received
only 3 of these 20 column
inches.
The statements Mr. Che
made about China are typical
of the statements made in the
North American Press. These
statements usually have their
source in Formosa, Hong Kong
or the U.S. government. Very
seldom is space given in our
press to reliable reporters who
have visited China recently.
Why? Felix Greene, a front-
rank American-British reporter
and broadcaster who would
have no reason to distort his
reporting, spent almost a year
seeing China. He gave a talk
on his visit to the students of
UBC on Nov. 30, 1961.
This talk which gave a completely    contradictory   impression to that given by Che was
not    reported   by  the student
press. Why? Why, also, was Dr.
Ping-Ti Ho's talk on Confucius
given Jan. 9 not reported?
Yours truly,
BRIAN GUNN,
Applied Science IV
Reply 'maybe'
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
In response to your editorial
"Maybe", Jan. 9, I say, "I
don't want a winter sports
arena, we don't need one." It's
about time the student promoters of the arena took a little notice of the views of the
students who will have to pay,
and considerable notice of the
opinions of the tax payers of
the province who will have to
pay even more.
When we got home this
Christmas holidays one of the
first things my father said to
me was: "What's this we hear
about you idiots wanting a
quarter of a million dollar
arena. The university is always
crying to the people about not
having enough money for essential equipment and services
and now you want an arena
that you could do without."
I'm sure many other people
in the province feel the same
way.
Yours truly,
W. JANZEN,
Misstatement
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
In connection -with the Formosa Consul General's comments printed in your January
9 edition I feel there has been
a gross misstatement of fact.
Felix Greene's visit to campus, sponsored by Social Events,
brings to mind a few contradictions worth noting. Mr.
Greene, incidentally, gave a
talk on "Inside Red China";
has spent several years in
Communist China before and
after the revolution; and
works as chairman of the BBC
operations in U.S.A. at the
present time.
He stated that in 1958 no
one in China was starving; that
the Chinese did not liquidate
great masses for political reasons; and that the health standards are among the best in
Asia. Moreover, he proved the
great bulk of Chinese people
are solidly behind the present
regime.
Although no Communist myself, it seems incredible that
Mr. Yin-shou Che could be so
misinformed or such a blatant
liar. Those who recall the "Cast
of Russien Wei" would, I
think, be more willing to accuse one of Chiang Kai-shek's
henchmen of story-telling than
Mr. Greene.
No offence against your paper, of course, just too bad you
got the wrong end of the stick.

Spineless
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
May I take this opportunity
to congratulate you and your
staff on the best newspaper
award. My congratulations also
go to Jack Ornstein and the
editor of "Drift Words", as
well as the writers of the editorials for their original productions.
I didn't know what spineless idiots we have on this
campus till I read the criticism
of the "disgusted" person who
doesn't seem to appreciate our
good Ubyssey.
Actually the base cowardice
displayed by the writer, who
hasn't the nerve to sign his or
her name, does not deserve
comment, however, fortunately
such weaklings are few in numbers — I hope!
Yours with respect,
DIETRICH LUTH,

JACK   ORNSTEIN
Read God and the Moral
Law  by  Peter Remnant,  Can.
Journal of Theology, 1958.
If there is a God and if there
are absolute moral standards,
would there be any relationship between them? Dr. Remnant has admirably explored
here so I'll summarize and
elaborate upon his main points.
I apologize for any misinterpretation.
If we say that whatever God
commands is good, then we
must admit that if He'd commanded us to engage in cannibalism or sacrilege etc., we'd
say that that was our duty.
Also, if God told us tomorrow
that He'd changed His mind
and that now we ought to eat
only vegetables and remain
chaste etc. then we'd say that
that was our duty. In other
words whatever God willed
would be considered good —
even if He repeatedly demanded opposing duties. All moral
laws would have to be prefaced "subject to change at any
time, depending on God's will".
So we cannot identify goodness with what God wills or
with what we think He wills.
There'd be nothing absolute
about these laws!
Those who call God a morally perfect being must mean
either that He always acts in
accordance with His own commands (and since these commands are our standard of
morality, we argue vacuously
—or they mean that He has
wisely recognized standards
that are good in and of themselves — i.e., that G. has benevolently passed on to men
what He recognizes as an absolute standard of right and
wrong. But this latter claim,
that the standard of right and
wrong is independent of God's
will, involves the difficulty
that we can now judge His
actions and purposes on the
basis of a standard which He
didn't create! Would God be
bound by these laws that He
didn't create? If He weren't
so bound, couldn't we justly
accuse Him of being immoral?
As Socrates asks in the
Euthyphro, does God command
the laws because they're good
or are the laws good because
He commands them? The former logically leads us to deny
the necessity of God's sanctions re morality — if we've
got an independent standard of
morality, what would we need
God for? To enforce the standard? Is He to be sort of a super
RCMP Constable? The latter
view logically leads to the fact
that whatever we thought God
to be commanding would be
labelled "good" — even if it
differed entirely from what
seems right to the highest
human morality — is God to
be a sort of super Henry Miller
commanding us all to commit
adultery, or not to do so, depending on His will?
I think that these are the
only two relationships which
could hold between a God and
absolute moral laws. Either
His will determines the good
or He recognizes the Good —
if the former, His laws may
not be morally perfect and
may even contradict each
other — if the latter, then He
can be judged by the independent standard — in both
cases He is placed in an extremely embarrassing situation, one that I wouldn't wish
on anybody.
Let's apply our "revelation".
When a city alderman denies
us the right to express our desires re Sunday movies because he believes a God commanded him to honor the sabbath, we should tell him to
keep his so-called religious
views out of our politics. When
anyone urges us to let God
guide the world with His absolute moral laws and to go
"straight" rather than left or
right (the moral re-armament
motto), we ought to ask him
how he discovered God's political leanings — if He ain't
left or right then He must be
a   socialist!   Right?
Anyone who invokes a God
to support his or her selfish
interests or plain ignorance,
ought to read Dr. Remnant's
paper — as should you who
quietly allow these invocations
to the gods. Friday, January 12, 1962

Arts grad wins
Rotary fellowship
A graduate of UBC has been
awarded a Rotary Fellowship
for 1962-63.
Ronald Smith, 1961 Arts graduate, is expected to study in
Australia. The fellowship was
one of 135 awarded ror all
around excellence.
Smith was president of Delta
Upsilon, and participated in
several sports at university.
j     Oakalla prison deputy Warden ]
| Grahame Watt Monday termed
j visits of student groups to that i
institution     "enlightening    and
beneficial" to the  inmates. j
"It is not the case at all," he j
said, "that students alone bene-1
fit by becoming aquainted with j
delinquent personalities. On the
contrary we consider it quite a
blessing to have our inmates in
contact with a  good  section of
the  community."
Watt said by having students
talk with inmates, the inmates
were able to see that "one
doesn't have to be on the wrong
side of the law to be a good
joe."
Watt was on campus arranging for small groups of students
from the College of Education
to work one evening a week
with inmates. He said similar
requests have been granted to
nurses, pre-medical students and
the psychology club.
University social workers and
criminologists have been working in conjunction with the
prison farm for some time, he
said.

EDITOR: DAVE BROMIGE
Layout:  Jones
^ . FIRST OF ALL, TO ALL
iu the' nubile Birchers who will
possibly have me before some
kind of committee when BG is
made pres down south, I would
like to say that I have never
worn a peace button, bought
UNICEF Christmas cards', or
voted for Dwighi Eisenhower.
Okay? Reduced to life imprisonment? Thank you.
THIS   BEING  A   CULTURE
column, I'd like here to take
an aghast look at some recent
phenomena in the popular American (hence Canadian) cultural outlets. I suppose that
the popular media have always
been in the control of the
Right, and that they always
will be. It is the recent injection of war serum I would like
readers to take a look at now.
Preparation of a war consciousness is the most marked
ieature of the entertainment
channels in the last little while.
TAKE FOR INSTANCE THE
comic strips. Notable Terry &
the Pirates, and Steve Canyon,
though there have been others.
Terry is adventuring with a
peace marcher who is selling
the free world down the drain
to you know who, and Stevie
has been referring to the
Ivans as the enemy since 1945.
These two strips are written by
George Wunder, Milton Caniff,
and a few senior officers in
1he Pentagon. Even Judge
Parker has switched from upper middle class buffoonery to
Red-hunting. Tsk.
YOU MIGHT ALSO LOOK
at popular music, or listen to
it if you can. There is a my
favorite piece extolling the
Navy Fliers who boom around
the skies looking for enemies,
and there is another about a
young cowboy who is taking
up rifle to protect God, his
country (probably Arkansas)
and his baby. And you know
where this latter defender is
going to do all this? Across
the Rhine. Where does that put
him, kiddies? I mean other
than number two in the fabulous four hundred disc diatribe.
STILL COMFY? HOW
about TV, that usually harmlessly insipid convention. 1
chanced to watch a funnyman
named Danny Thomas once
over the holiday season. He
was   standing  in   a   classroom
telling a roomful of nice kids
that they had better study hard
so that they could hit back at
the nasty Commie kids that
were being turned into war
robots bv the other side.
AND" OLD STANDBY
Hearst and Co. etc. are all in
there, too. On the covers of
Life magazine for the past few
months we have seen nearly
every eighteen-year-old boy in
the U.S. army bravely facing
the Bradenburg Gate from the
turret of a portable bombshelter, protecting the country
we all love. For those who
don't know, this country is the
United States, bounded on one
side by the Pacific (sic) ocean,
and the other by the East German wall.
OF COURSE, THESE ARE
the commercially - centred
media. A man can always
escape from the scare campaign by taking the traditional
refuge — the church. It can be
mighty comfortable sitting and
listening to Billy Graham or
somebody preaching against
Khrushchev and  other devils.
Or, in desperation a man can
turn to literature. Like for
instance, Ayn Rand . . . ?
nfeus contest
The NFCUS Literary Con
test announces its deadline is
February 1]  1962.
The contest is divided into
two sections, one for entries in
English, one for entries in
French.
In both sections entries must
fall into one of three categories, which are: poetry,
essays, and short stories. Each
contestant may submit no more
than two entries in each category. The prose entries must
be under 5,000 words; the
verse entries under 300 lines.
All entries should be in triplicate, double-spaced, and accompanied by a slip giving title,
author's name, age, sex, -and
address.
There are two prizes in each
category: first, $50; second,

University of  British  Columbia
Mr. Newstone, the Canadian
born conductor who has won
fame in England, had a well-
balanced program to work with
in last Sunday's Vancouver
Symphony concert. It opened
with "Overture to Beatrice
and Benedict" by Berlioz.
An opening of rich warmth
developed into a light
and spontaneous rendition of
this work, which preludes Berlioz's opera "Much Ado About
Nothing''. There were vigorous
shadings with excellent performances by the strings, the
woods and even the horns.
There was a springy bounce to
the performance as a whole,
culminating in a beautifully
clean ending.
it   is   it
From the avant-garde of the
Romantics the program regressed to the Classics with the performance of the Symphony No.
31 in D major, K. 297 "Paris"
by Mozart. The Allegro assai,
the opening movement was
well handled on the whole.
However, there was a lack of
cleanness in passages, particularly those of a decorative nature. But melodic lines were
well wrought throughout.
it   it   it
The second   movement,   An-
dantino was stately and graceful, just a little unwieldly perhaps. Violin melodies were
strong and clear while an excellent effect was produced in
passages placed-over an Alberti
bass. The strings did have trill
troubles, however. Another factor which detracted from the
performance was the habit of
slipping or sliding through melodic entrances by the French
horns, a rather too frequent
practice with this section of the
orchestra. The third movement
Allegro was generally good
with its clearly defined polyphony.
it it it
The "Peacock Variations" of
Kodaly served tri round out the
first half of the program. A set
of 16 variations on a penta-
tonic, Hungarian folk - tune,
they are rich with the orchestral color and warmth of the
composer. One might well imagine a stage full of iridescent
eyes appearing as the tail fans
out by means of a rather ominous and impressive opening of
tympani, cellos and bass. And,
with all due respect to the composer  and  the  performers one
might compare this to a Man-
cini-sound opening.
it   it    it
The   entrance   of   the   harp
shortly after the statement of
the theme by clarinet adds richness and more color to the
work. The trombone passages
were good, along with well defined and exact melodies from
the oboes. Other sections found
themselves on occasion not altogether clean in their presentation.
it   it   it
The variation of a lumbering,
rather elephantine nature was
excellent, as also were the suc-
ceding two variations, the second of which gave an image of
morning over an exotic forest.
Much credit is due to the skilful employment of the piccolo
throughout, while the cellos,
the first violin and flute deserve individual praise for particularly delightful passages.
The full bodied ending, capably
supported by the trombones,
proved a good finale for the
first half of the performance.
The second half of the program was the Symphony No. 4
in E minor, Opus 98 by Brahms.
A somewhat melancholy work
of deep beauty, this was given
a firm and solid approach by
the orchestra. It was almost
too firmly, possibly even a little
staid, which lent an atmosphere
of heaviness to the presentation. The first movement, Allegro non troppo, opens with a
presentation of the first theme
by the violins which after a
full presentation is treated in a
more sensuous  manner.
it it is
The second theme is then delivered by the woodwinds and
horns and the movement develops itself principally around
the first theme. The string melodies were strong and at other
times terse while their pizzicato was firm and bold. The
brass were not at all times
clean, however.
it    it    i?
The  opening  of   the   second
movement, Andante moderato
was lyrical, quasi-plaintive and
noble. It was more religious
than sensuous (as it is often described as being). The presen-
t a t i o n was impressive and
forceful in a gent?el sort of
way, in parts somewhat sweet.
The   strings   working    over   a
rolling  plucking  of  the   cellos
was good and the combination
of cellos and bassoon produced.
a moving quality of tone.
The opening of the third
movement, Allegro giocoso, hao*
a driving force but lapsed
slightly into lumbering qualities. The fanfare introducing
a passage of gaiety was nicely
executed and once again the
strings worked well.

The Allegro, the fourth and
final movement, is written in a
contrapuntal form, the Passa-
caglia — a series of variations
on a theme heard repeatedly in
the bass. There are, in all, 30
variations in this movement
which ended forcefully with
excellent support from the
typmpani.

The advocates of Christmas
invariably fall back on the
argument that it's good for the
kiddies. It's the favorite defence of the sickening season.
A few diehards, fidgeting with
their clerical collars, attempt •
to give other reasons, but these
madmen are easily ignored,
especially if you don't have
one in your family.
Those who are not writers—
i.e., those who work for a living — might welcome these
mornings on which they can
lie in, but my bet is they don't
get to lie in long anyway, what
with trips to the bathroom and
mixing alka-seltzer and beating their wives. Four mornings
lying-in away from it all, say
snowbound on top of Old
Smoky, might be beneficial,
but that's not what I'm talking about: I'm concerned with
spending the season smoke-
bound and snowed-under with
a bunch of Old Tops.
By Old Tops I mean the villains of this piece, the boosters
of Christmas - for - the - kiddies,
that is, the gandparents. Some
say parents are the instigators.
Not on your life! No parent of
more than three years' experience would be caught playing
a ruffled Holmes to a homey,
midget Raffles round and
round the wrapping paper
when he could be birdeying

But parents, while their
parents live, remain in many
ways children themselves, rebellious to a degree but always
to be brought to heel when the
matriarchal whip cracks. And

takes place when daughter becomes a mummy fills grand-
mama with nostalgia and her

these elements, his reading did not penetrate
them deeply. Even the sombre opening phrases
in the vibrant cellos and basses could have "oeen
more effective at a slower, more brooding pace.
His dynamics and phrasing were carefully
worked out but his conception possessed insufficient breadth and sweep. In short, it was
small scaled.
Three movements from Berlioz' Damnation
of Faust saw the conductor in better form. The
delicacy of the minuet and the Ballet of the
Sylphs received an appropriately light touch,
the stirring Racoczy March, an exciting one.
Another rehearsal might have made gems of
these readings.
The principal work on the second half of
the program, the well-known Carmen Suite of
Bizet, represents a collection of some of the
best known music from the opera. Surprisingly, Mr. Fiedler's reading missed much of the
gypsy fire of Bizet's music. A muscular approach to the Prelude to Act One .or example,
is not enough to convey the appropriate atmosphere. While the dance rhythms of .the Aragon-
aise and the lyrical How of the Intermezzo
fared better, the suite as a whole emerged in
too careful a manner, seeming more an exercise in alternating dynamics than an evocation
of the moods of the opera.
In typical >"pops" concert style, Mr. Fiedler
concluded his program with the gaudy, bombastic Marche Slav by Tchaikowsky. A strongly Slavic work, containing strains even of the
Russian National Hymn, this composition ideally should have had larger and better disciplined forces than were available for Friday's performance. Yet as in the Racoczy March and
Carmen Suite, Mr. Fiedler
urged his musicians on and
despite some technical flaws—
in the brass section especially
—-the performance as a whole
generated considerable excitement.
As mentioned earlier, one rehearsal can hardly provide Mr.
Fiedler a fair opportunity to
demonstrate adequately his interpretations and orchestral
control. That he was able to
obtain such good playing from
the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as he did, constitutes
no small achievement.

*     KING OF KINGS     *
Hollywood's super-spectaculars have always been greeted
by intelligent audiences with contempt and ridicule: THE TEN
COMMANDMENTS provoked hysterical laughter, BEN HUR
evoked acute boredom. It is sad that I have to report that KING
OF KINGS, despite Nicholas Ray's reputation as a ajrector with
a deliberately evocative style, must fall into rank along with
these depressing companions. Perhaps Nicholas Ray was a little
overawed by the large budget he was handling for the first time,
perhaps he was intimidated by the all-enveloping Super-Tech-
nirama screen. Whatever the reason, the result is an abysmal
failure both as a film and as "A Story of -the Christ."
Nicholas Ray seems to have embraced the commercially
successful gimmicks of the late unlamented Cecil B. DeMille,
who recognized the basically dual nature of his audience. On
the one hand their eagerness to see everything they consider
sinful and taboo, and on the other, their desire to retain their
own sense of righteous respectability. KING OF KINGS gives
its audiences plenty of both. Since the film is about Christ it
must be both righteous and respectable. The director supplies
the sinful with the loving and adoring care with which his
camera caresses the fleshiness of Herod's court, and blood seeping from dead or wounded bodies.
FREEDOM AND OPPRESSION
In addition to all this there is a little "allegory" about freedom and tyrannical oppression — with obvious contemporary
overtones. The blurb in the official handbook of the film tells
us that: "The menace of tyranny is as great now as it was in
those days. The cruel, unscrupulous men and women pf ancient
times have their current ruthless counterparts." To stress this
"idea" the role of the Jewish rebel leader, Barrabas, is deliberately stressed, and Barrabas becomes at least as important a
character in the film as Christ himself.
The script, by Philip Yordan ,is written as a standard weepie
melodrama, full of personality clashes and cloying sentimentality.
The role of Christ as the mystical leader of a religion that has
inspired millions is under-stressed, and he is depicted as a pawn
in the rebellion of the Jews against the Romans. He is arrested
and crucified for the innocent part he played in the abortive
revolt of the Jews under Barrabas. Not content with these
changes, the script-writer has Judas betraying Christ, not for
30 pieces of silver, but as a measure towards winning freedom
for the Jews. Judas, for some fantastic reason that is never clarified, believes that Christ will loose miraculous thunderbolts on
the Roman oppressors if arrested, and thus liberate Judea.
POOR CASTING
It was a mistake that cost the director dearly to cast Jeffrey
Hunter as Christ.This "actor" has no more idea of the beauty and
power inherent in the Christ figure than has the script-writer.
It is a pity, also, that the director over-estimated the effect of
Hunter's supposedly mystical stare. Where Christ's eyes might
convey sorrow, gentleness or serene triumph in a destiny fulfilled, Hunter can only offer the glassy-eyed stare of a punch-
drunk boxer.
However, it might still have been possible for Nicholas Ray
to salvage something from this hocus-pocus collection of garbage.
A scene like the Temptation of Christ in the desert could have
been very powerful and moving; but where we should have felt
the strength and humility of Christ during his ordeal there is
only boredom and annoyance at a lost opportunity.
The photography is smooth, glassy and competent—but, with
some odd exceptions, generally uninspired
KING OF KINGS could have been a very moving portrayal
of a mystical Christ figure who was the fountainhead of one of
the world's great religions. Or it might have been a depiction
of a great moral and ethical teacher. That these opportunities
were lost is very disappointing, as is the fact that Nicholas Ray
has cranked out just another mish-mash collection of triteness,
banality and triviality.

Education   students   want  to  send
engineering prof 'back to school'
Dr. G. B. Walker should go
back to school according to Education students.
Dr. Walker, an engineering
professor, said at an Education
seminar Saturday that Canadian
education is a "conditioning
process", and is in danger oi
boring the students to death.
He complained particularly of
the lack of communication between student and teacher.
flack Penner, Education IV,
protested, "Progressive teaching
methods are being instituted.
Dr. Walker must be basing his
opinions on practices which are
being replaced today."
Other students thought that
Doctor Walker had put his finger on the wrong facet of the
problem.
Lawrence Estrin, Education
V, said, "Communication is important but the real problem behind boredom is to make the
student want to learn."
William   Yeandle,   Education
V, said, "Both the student and
the teacher must first be willing
to learn. The child is often
taught the wrong values at
home, long before the school
can influence him."

Riot  equals  mob

PHILADELPHIA (CUP-UPS)—As students become more

Phillips says it is difficult
to estimate how the team will

sketchy information concerning the prairie teams.
Birds' strength will lie in
the netminding of Bill Ray-

line from the '61 season,

and Chern Singh.
Father Bauer says the
series is experimental and he
will interchange players to
see who is best suited for any
position.
The team is nowhere near
their peak and is aiming at
the Hamber Cup series in
March, he said.
The powerful Saskatchewan
Huskies have won seven
straight exhibition games.
Huskie coach Don Burgess
says his team is well-balanced
and if his goalie, Vic Ada-
mache, continues to play well
the team will be a strong
contender for the WCIAU

He said he felt Canadian universities should receive considerable aid through this program.
He said the.council might consider the establishment of regional coaching centres —probably at existing universities.

in the 1964 Olympics; Osborne
said.
"The association can" bolster
those national organizations

He said the council would concentrate on nurturing those athletes who have already shown
promise as well as develop grassroots programs.

Birds all shook up by Vikings
By RON KYDD
Offensively, UBC Thunderbirds deserved to
win a basketball game Tuesday night, but defensively they deserved to lose. And they did.
On offense, the Birds scored a very respectable 64 points against the powerful Western
Washington Vikings.
Defensively, however, it was a different story.
The Birds inexperience was obvious, as time and
time again they allowed Western to drive through
for easy shots.       jl.    .x.    .x.
The final score: 83-64 for the Vikings.
UBC was bothered throughout "the game not
only by their defensive lapses, but also by the
refereeing. The Thunderbirds had a hard time
getting used to the rough type of basketball
played in Bellingham.
This weekend the Birds fly to Calgary for
two games against the University of Alberta at
Calgary. These are "semi-official" Western intercollegiate Conference games, because the Calgary university is not yet in the league. They
plan to enter next year.
