We've always had certain suspicions about the speeches
freshmen must listen to during Frosh Week, and today we are
pleased to report that our darkest suspicions have been confirmed.
It seems that Miss Lynda Gates, the charming President
of the Women's Undergraduate Sloctety, hais, along with
nearly a score of other student and faculty officials, addressed
the Frosh on several occasions, on behalf of various things.
Miss Gates, however, is the first of these to admit that she
uses the same set of notes for every speech. We are reproducing said notes, for the benefit of any freshmen who have failed
to hear the orientation speeches:
"Welcome — behalf
Woman's place — scope
take advantage
leadership — join
Big and Little sister
sign up brock — noon hour'
first constructive"
This more or less sum  up everything  that  can  be said
in a Frosh orientation speech, and it more or less sums  up
our feelings  about  frosh  orientation  speeches  in general.
We hope some public-spirited campus group will mimeograph copies of Miss Gates' notes — or something similiar —
and distribute them to frosh in handy pamphlet form. Result:
a tremendous saving in time and verbiage.
How about it, Critic's Circle ?
Today, the Ubyssey pays unabashed tribute to all the
young men who have registered for fraternity  rushing.
During the next two weeks, these dauntless souls will:
have their hands pumped an estimated 759 times; consume
enough liquor to float a small sailboat; answer the eternal
question, "And what faculty are you in?" countless times; and
forget hundreds of names that they should have remembered.
Fraternity men will buy them coffee, laugh at their jokes, urge
t;hem continually to "come our way, fellah," and without fail,
Vie with each other to light the rushee's cigarettes.
Finally, after two gruelling weeks of this, the Big Moment
Will get used to it. They will acquire perhaps a dozen good
noon-hour, and proceed to the fraternity table of their choice.
With glad cries and lusty shouts they will be welcomed into
the fold. After that, they will proceed to the frat house for an
afternoon's beering, to get to know their new brothers.
But right after that, the atmosphere will change. For alas,
these young men are no longer rushees. Now they are pledges,
and some of the harsh realities of fraternity life are revealed
to them.
Floors must be scrubbed, and walls painted; silly songs must
be learned in their entirety; some new brothers may turn out
to be more like very distant cousins; and of course fees must
be paid, and right away, too!
In time though, the young men whom we salute today
will come. The rushees will make their way to the cafeteria one
friends, and learn to be tolerably friendly to the rest. The
sensitive ones, if they don't depledge, will resign themselves to
the discriminatory clauses that no-one bothered to tell them
about during rushing. They'll have a lot of fun, and probably
learn to know and respect their fellow man quite a bit better.
After graduation, the keen types will continue to wear
their fraternity pins, and attend rushing functions. Tho wiser
ones will realize that, although tho friends they made in the
fraternity are a permanent acquisition, the fraternity itself
is for undergraduates only. They will put their pin away,
together with the other things of their childhood. They'll
extract what profit they can from the fraternity system, and
hope that their succesors will do the same.
And so, to all the young men on the threshold of this
fantastic experience, our best wishes, and our profoundest
(Editor's Note:—The following

There is one loyalty oath that
every man in the teaching profession is compelled to take and
the penalty for its violation is
not the legal penalty of treason,
but the damnation of his immortal soul. He may not take this
oath before a notary public, but
if he doesn't swear it on the
altar of God, he is no teacher,
but a quack. Its terms are simple. They are: "In speaking to

truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me
Anything less than that is
false pretense; anything more
than that is superfluous; anything in conflict with that is
The prime tenets of communism are, in my opinion, fantastic nonsense, but let that pass as
merely an opinion. What is certain is that those tenets are not
established, tested and verified
truth; and any man who propounds them to students as established truth is cither a conscious
liar or a dim-wit. Certainly he
is not fit to be a teacher.
So much for communism, but
what about the prime tenets of
the Republican party? I mention
it because it is the party that at
the moment happens to hold the
executive power in the United
States government. If its tenets
are established, tested and verified truth, then Kelly is a Chinaman. As much may be said of
the Democratic party and any
other political group you choose
to name. All of them are experimenting in the art of government. All of them have made
mistakes. All of them at one
time or another have proclaimed
as fundamental laws of the universe some doctrine that was
only the bad guess of a politician
whose brain was fevered by the
lust of office.
It is my conviction, therefore,
that the man who propounds to
students as established truth the
doctrines of either the Republican or the Democratic parly is
in the same class with a Communist.   He is unfit to be a teacher.
If there lives a man who has
passed through college, university and professional school without learning that the whole body
of human knowledge, as compared with the vast unknown, is
a very slight and dubious thing,
he is a man who has learned nothing. Indeed, he is incapable
of learning.    He is uneducable.
Nowhere is it more conspicuously true than in the art of government that our utmost progress
has been but picking a little path
of light through an immense
darkness. It is my belief that
American representative democracy is, for our people in our
situation, the best form of government that the wit of man has
as yet devised; but God forbid
that I should consider it the best
that will ever be devised, It is
my faith that in time it will
evolve into a higher and nobler
form of government than men
have ever dreamed.
It is entirely reasonable to
require a man about to be inaugurated as President of the
United States to take an oath to
defend the Constitution as it is.
The President takes office for a
fixed term of four years, during
which period his first duty is
faithfully to execute the laws as
they are. So it it with any other
man—a military officer, a judge,
a sheriff, an administrator—
assigned a specific task in connection with the operation of the
But a teacher is a horse of another color. He has no duty in
connection with operation of the
governmental machinery, hence
no responsibility for keeping it
in running order. Except in special cases, he is not even preparing administrators. He is!
preparing citizens, that is, the
makers and proprietors of the
machinery, to act as citizens
should; and certainly a primary
duty of the citizen of a democracy is to apply his energies of
mind and heart always, and his
physical energies sometimes, to
amending and perfecting our
political institutions.
Obviously the first step toward preparing the student for
this duty of a citizen is to convince him that it is possible. It
is folly to attempt to improve
what is already perfect. If one
takes the attitude that the Constitution of the United States was
verbally inspired by God and
that John Marshall's doctrine of
judicial review of Congressional
legislation was brought down
from Sinai, it is evident that no
prospective citizen should be encouraged to lay unhallowed
hands upon the Ark of the Covenant.
But if we can be said to know
anything at all about the Founding Fathers we know that they
did not regard their work as sacrosanct. They were so doubt-;
ful of it, in fact, that nineteen
refused to attach their names to
it, and as ardent a patriot as Ben-!
jamin Franklin stated publicly
that he signed it only because
he thought it was the best that
could be done in the circumstances. The wisest among them expressed the view, not once but
repeatedly, that the supreme
value of the Constitution was its
function as an avenue to something better than thc American
people would reach in time.
The Constitution is merely the
verbal expression of a political
philosophy it is without meaning. We have tacitly admitted
that, by amending the Constitu
tion no less than twenty-two
times, as the philosophy developed. So to exact from a teacher an oath of allegiance to the
Constitution is to compel him
to transfer his allegiance from
the creator to the creature, which
is blasphemy in any religion and
in my opinion, treason in'any
political system.
In short, no sort of oath can
abrogate the right of revolution
and a teacher sworn to tell the
whole truth must inform his students that it Is inalienable. Government did not grant this right
any more than it granted life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and government cannot
rightfully lay hand3 upon any of
A loyalty oath for teachers is
justifiable only on the theory
that the teacher is fundamentally an officer of the government, which implies that education is as definitely an instrumentality of government as is
the army or the navy. I can
think of no doctrine more subversive of the spirit of Americanism. A government that endeavors to employ the schools to
consolidate and perpetuate its
power is totalitarian in the most
vicious meaning of the term.

Warns Chant
Students are more prone to
read comic books and talk on the
telephone than to attend to their
work, Dean S. N. Chant told a
class Monday afternoon.
Speaking to almost 125 Psychology students, Dean Chant
explained that studies conducted
in universities throughout Canada and the United States have
shown that students are definitely inclined to leave their home
work on the shelf.
He firmly warned the class,
mostly freshmen, that they must
develop a strict schedule of work

added, "it must be sprinkled

Pep Club's Cheerleaders performed four numbers with the
assistance of the audience.
The versatile football players
performed their version of "Mule

gallon hat, and carrying a laced
whip went through all the "hooo-
hooo-ha-ha's" of the show.
The Club wlil be sponsoring a
bonfire Friday night, and a

be held on October 10, when the
first plans for a roaring season
will be aired.

Harry Price and Jimmy Johnson will be the directors of Mus-

Second Brock
Fire This Year
Brock hall janitors prevented
another fire on Friday night
when a chesterfield was set
smouldering by a cigarette.
Janitor George Deavin was
patrolling' the balcony of the
main lounge at a Newman Club
dance Friday night when he noticed smoke billowing from a
chesterfield on the main floor.
Though 650 people were present no one made an effort to
extinnguish the blaze.
Mr. Deavin and his assistant,
Harry Irwin, took the smouldering chesterfield from the room
and put out the flames.
As a result of one person's
carelessness, no more smoking
will be allowed at dances in the
Forestry Needs
More Scholarships
A large increase in university
entrance scholarships for prospective forestry students is needed to alleviate a serious crisis
in British Columbia's forestry
industry, B.C.'s Dean of Forestry
George S. Allen said recently.
"In British Columbia we face
a general shortage of trained
men of all kinds," Dean Allen
"The situation is most serious
in the woods which support such
a large part of our economy.
"During the past ten years this
Province has made unprecedented progress in protection, regeneration and management of the
forest. Production has gone over
thc $600,000,000 mark.
"But only 25 men graduated
this year to fill more than 100
available positions. This has
been happening for several
Dean Allen suggested a relatively simple  solution    to    the!
problem by providing more university entrance scholarships and;
bursaries for prospective forestry !
"Encourage more promising;
young men to train themselves I
for work in the forests and in I

E Exchange Student
Goes Home Today
B.C. and Germany are alike
in their Forest Management programmes according to WUS exchange student, Claus R.. Hacker.
Hacker, 25, sporting a beautiful chestnut coloured beard,
boards a ship this morning to
return to home-town Mannheim,
near Heidelberg. He will work
for Forest Management.
"Germany has a better Forest
Management programme than
British Columbia," Hackman
said, "but this is only because
our system has been going for
about 150   years   longer   than
'B.C. has more Forest
resources than Germany," however, Hackman said.
Hacker has completed work
on a Masters Degree in Forestry
at UBC during the last year. His
thesis is on needle-bearing trees
in B.C. and Germany. He spent
his summer working for the B.C.
Forest Service on Vancouver
Island and in the Northern Interior.
Claus took his B.A. in Forestry at Freiburg University in
Germany's Black Forest district.
Freiburg is about the same size
as UBC, Claus said, but UBC
has more student automony.
Freiburg has more foreign students on exchange programmes
than UBC, Claus said. And Freiburg has a greater proportion of
girls, about 40 per cent taking
exerything except Home Ec. Few.
German Universities offer this,
Claus said.
Main difference between the
two Universities is the amount of
refugee students from East Germany and other Communist
sattelite countries present at
Freiburg. These complicate the
already overcrowded employment situation, Claus said.
Average wage even after University graduation is approximately $60 a month. Consequently many German students try
to get jobs abroad although the
situation has improved in the
last two years, Claus said.
Claus himself nopes to return
to B.C. and work with the Forestry Service. "And maybe
marry a Canadian girl and settle
down," he added.

Registration Count
7243, Rising Still
The near-rock *n roll riot of
registration ended late Saturday with 7243 students putting their names down in the
books, the highest UBC has
seen since the immediate postwar years.
The total figure represents
an overall increase of 800 students from the 1959-56 session.
And officals at the registrar's
office are predicting that the
total registration will rise at
least another 200, adding up to
7400, the highest in UBC's
history,   since   1948.
There are significient decreases in the numbers enrolled in first, second and third
year arts. In the faculty of
arts and science this term
3074 are enrolled compared to
3040 last year.

mong the freshmen where 1474
have joined the ranks and
files of UBC, compared to 1414
last year.
Associate Registrar John A.
Parnell   explains   the   situation
as thus:
"The College of Education
has proven a boon to many second, third and fourth year arts
students. A number have
transferred from the faculty of
arts and sciences to the new
school of education."
Commerce enrollment is up
slightly. Some 546 are studying the particular field this
session compared to 529 last
The School of Home Economics, too, is up, Total enrolled to date is 171. There were
168 studying home ec last year.
Only 20 students are in
their fourth year in this school
compared to 39, almost 100
percent more, than last year.
Opening of a college of education on the campus has also
effected the numbers enrolled
in the School of Physical Education. Mr. Parnall contends
that many taking phys ed
last year transferred to the
education college this term.
Most noteworthy increase
is in faculty of Forestry. This
term 54 are planning to study
forestry compared to 39 frosh
in the same faculty last year.
Officials feel that a slacken-.
ing of the entrance requirements has probably contributed to the increased enrollment
figure. This year there was no
language and the student only
needed a 60 percent average.
Enrollment in the faculty
of graduate studies is down 19
this year. Last sessions 323
were enlisted. This year there
are 302.
Future teachers studying elementary education on the one-
year program total 265. In
their second, third and fourth

Tom Hughes, assistant superin-
tendent of Buildings and
Grounds, says there is really no
reason for the congestion. "There
is lots of room beside the West-
brook building and opposite the
gym," Hughes said, "and students who complain that these
spaces are too far from their
lectures should remember that
no other large universities allow
parking anywhere on campus."
At the moment, many students
are parking their cars in restricted areas. No fines will be
issued for these offenses until
October 1. Warnings only will
be placed on the violating cars.
These warnings will contain
all the necessary information on
campus parking lots, restricted
areas, and penalties for violators.
Chalk Si
He's, She's
Segregation has got off to a
healthy start.
Men and women enrolled in
the School of Education broke
apart Monday to enter their
building through doors labelled
"Boys" and "Girls."
The signs, chalked up by some
moralistic wag or nostalgic expatriate from the land of rubber hands, spitballs and curiosity, did not influence classes.
A few daring liberals defied
the identified doors, but for the
most part grade two instincts
triumphed over free thinking.
No comment was given by
Dean Neville Scarfe, although it
is rumoured scores of would-be
teachers transferred to engineering.
Informed sources say the
signs were inspired by a rule at
the new extinct Normal School.
There, students were segregated.
Although the nomenclature
will disappear from the outside,
it will remain on the public facilities.

PRO Of UCC To Take

Campus groups, who have complained for years of 'Tween
Class notices that go astray, will get relief at last.
University Clubs Committee has taken over the task,
which pubsters for years have considered beneath their dignity.
'Tween Class notices must now be filed in the box in
the AMS Office, by 3 p.m. on the day before publication, to
ensure their appearance. ,
Tween Class "Editor" is UCC Public Relations Officer
Earl Hindley.
"In practically all cases, it's the clubs who use the 'Tween
Classes column," Hindley said Monday. "So why shouldn't
UCC take responsibility for it?
Ubyssey Editor Sandy Ross commented: "We're glad to
see the last of them."

Raven Squawks
For Second Year
That best-seller of university publications, Raven, is to
appear in even more glorious plumage this year, according to
editor Douglas Howies.
Raven, for those poor proletarian few who may not have
heard, is the campus literary
magazine. It is the beaky mouth
thorugh which our future poets
croak their never-more. It is,
i'faith, the featheriest, fashion-
ablest little bird to apear in our
hallowed halls for many an arid
literary year.
Raven is a publication of the
students by the students for anyone interested in exciting contemporary student writing. First
appearing on campus in the fall
of 1955, under the editor-ship of
Michael Ames, Raven was acclaimed by critics as an immediate and over-whelming success.
And it is reappearing, this
year, in two resplendant issues.
This is a publication aimed at
presenting the best of student
writing in the best possible format. Those future Hemmingways
and Spillanes who wish to engrave their name eternally on the
literary head-stone of our age
are urged to polish up their little
literary gems and send them in,
Raven is interested in literary
material of all sorts, poetry, fiction and non-fiction ill be welcomed. Fairly short pieces, 3000
words or less, will receive a better chance of publication.
Contributions should be sent
to the editorial board of the
Raven, c-o Alma Mater Society
Office,   Brock   Hall,   UBC,   or
should be handed in at the AMS
Contribution deadline for the
first issue of Raven is Friday,
November 2.
U.S. Students
American college students are
not interested in the presidential election.
A survey conducted by Look
magazine of 1,300 students at 24
colleges revealed that only two
out of every five student who
are elegible to vote plan to do
Seventy-one percent of the
students who will be voting for
the first time admitted that their
choice of the president will be
"strongly influenced" by he
candidate's personality and appearance.
When asked about their chief
complaints about the Democratic and Republican parties,
almost fifty per-cent of the students found this "too remote or
complicated, or just plain too
political" to express an opinion.
Thirty-eight percent of those
polled didn't seem to know, or
care, what there was to admire
about either the Republication
or Democratic parties.
"Presidents   Address
President N.A.M. MacKenzie's address to all freshmen will
be given in the Auditorium Wednesday, October 3, instead of
Wednesday this week as previously announced.
The correction came from
Council-man Ben Trevino, who
is in charge of synchronizing the
various aspects of Frosh week.
Other plans concerning the
week have been changed or improved upon, so for the interest
of bewildered frosh here is a
summary of the highlights.
Wednesday is the first day for
scheduled hazing. Red Sweater

regalia (including rag dolls for
boys and yo-yo's for girls) under
penalty of trial in the newly instituted Quad court of the Engineers and Law students and inevitable punishment.
The next day, Thursday, all
Frosh will assemble in the Auditorium for a General Meeting of
all first year students. The
meeting will be brightened by
the appearance of the ten finalists for the Frosh Queen title.
On the same programme the
candidates for positions on the
Frosh Executive will state their
aims in campaign speeches. Both

throughout the day although the
girls may switch to "baby sister"
dress in the evening. The men
must remain in their ignominious
attire for the smoker.

classic, 'Her Scienceman Lover.'.

ever really changes, and the same goes for Fraternity
rushing. Miss Joan Fitzpatrick of Windsor, Ontario, Miss
Western Ontario of 1956, is not exactly involved in rushing,

UBC's Library lawn has the
"modern look."
A massive piece of sculpture,
"Three Forms," by Robert Clothier, has become a permanent
part of the campus landscape.
The heavy granite work was
purchased this Summer by the
University Administration. Mr.
Clothier's work was one of those
displayed on the Library lawn
during summer outdoor sculpture exhibit.
Alexander Archipenko, a leading authority on sculpture and a
guest lecturer during the Summer session, chose'Three Forms'
for the University.
Mr. Archipenko chose the
"statute for its "simplicity of
form" and the effective use of
sunlight and shadow.
The sculptor, a former architecture student at UBC, is a well-
known actor. He has played key
roles in Theatre Under the Stars,
and at the Frederick Wood
Theatre. He also studied sculpture at the Central School of
Arts and Crafts in England, and
drama at the Royal Academy of
Dramatic Art in London.

Shuttle Squad
To Edmonton
Eight members of the UBC championship Badminton
team will begin intense training this season in preparation for
their second scramble against the University of Alberta for the
right to hold the Western Intercollegiate badminton title.
Last march, in their debut
against the University of Alberta's eight, the UBC shuttlers
squelched Alberta 31-4 matches,
but were unable to bring the
prized trophy home to UBC because of the unofficial aspect of
that particular match.
However, this year, UBC will
deiinitely challenge Alberta to
an official play-off, Alberta having beaten Saskatchewan and
Manitoba previously to win the
Western title. After having
overcome Western Washington
11-1, and winning the City championship, the members of the
UEC shuttle squad are determined that UBC will hold the
Western Intercollegiate Badminton title this year, and for the
first time in UBC's history.

UBC Shows Promise
But Bobbles Costly
University of Western Ontario Mustangs score took the
Churchill Cup back east with them Saturday as they rolled to
a 38-13 victory over UBC Saturday before 5000 fans.
It was the third victory in four
starts for the eastern teams in
the annual parplegic bowl.
Western displayed a powerful
ground attack, making chunks of
yardage through tackle. Mustang
coach John Metras obviously
does not have the inexperienced
crew he cried about in pre-game
news releases.
Western has the material to
become a powerhouse in the
eastern intercollegiate league.

Mustangs turned UBC's first
mistake into a touchdown after
Art Turner recovered his own
short punt on the UBC 30. Western moved to the Bird one-yard
line from where Johnny Bell
pluned over Len Casanova converted.
A 30-yard run by Bell tallied
Western's second score five
minutes from half-time.
Then Richie Eustis entered the
game and sparked an 80-yard
touchdown march. Bruce Allar-
dyce carried four times to move
the ball to the Western 45.
Bruce Eagle picked up twenty
yards over right end, and Eustis
completed the scoring march
with a quick pass to George
Kosich from the Western one-
yard stripe.
Ron Stewart's convert was
good and the half finished with
Western leading 15-7. Mustangs
scored their first point on a
In the third quarter Western
quarterback Turner threw a 30-
yard pass over the head of a
Bird back to end John Girvin for
the Mustangs' third major.
On the play after the kick-off,
Bird halfback Gerry Gray took a
pitch-out around the shortside
and galloped 75 yards behind
fine blocking by Ian Stewart
for the touchdown. Ron Stewart's
convert was blocked.
A screen pass to Len Casanova
accounted for Western's fourth
TD when the Bird defense was
caught unawares. Halfback Tarling had no chance against three
Western blockers.
Western's final touchdown was
scored by halfback Bill Britton.
Varsity suffered two casualties
in the contest, George Kosich
with torn knee cartileges and
halfback Tom Hanson with a
sprained ankle.
Hanson is out of action for one
game, while Kosich's injury will
keep him out indefinitely.
Frank Gnup will make some
changes in his defensive line-up
before next Saturday's game

It was a good ball game. The
Lions won by sheer guts and
sharper footballese.
Heroes were: new and fourth
starting quarterback Primo Vil-
lenueva, Paul Cameron, Ed Ve-
reb and Canadian Ron Baker.
Edmonton's only score came
in the second quarter.    A Lion
was   rouged  when   Bob  Dean's
attempted field goal was wide.
Just before the half, Lions put
the dynamite under Hastings and
Cassiar, when    Paul   Cameron,
after    a    pitchout    from    "da
Preem" tossed a 20-yard pass to
Ed Vereb.
Vereb fell across the goal line.
Baker converted    the   touchdown  and gave Lions  another
three points in the third quarter
with a 35-yard field goal.
Vic Chapman kicked a rouge
for the Lions' final point.
We think Mr. Parker needs a
new nib.
