Tbe Honorary Degrees were pte
sented to the two distinguished
scientists by the Chancellor cf the

In his Congregation address Sir

He told the Congregation audi
ence that, "We must face the fact
that  cancer  ts  on  the  increase."
Dr. Cave commented on the phe
nominal increase in cancer of th?
lung and said that much thought
has been given to the possible re
latlon of this increase to the In
creased consumption of tobacco.
He mid. however, that such a connection has not yet been proved
"Victory over cancer can only
be achieved by the arduous toll
of ardent spirits to whom no discipline is too stbrn, no training too
hard, no effort to gMut," Dr. Cave
told his audience.
Df. Cave closed his address on
a note of optimism telling the
assembled medical men, "Some
diseases of historical Interest today, have In years gone by swept
the face of the globe—Cholera, the

Student Body
Defeats Plan
Student Apathy
Faces AMS
The student body unanimously quashed a Student Council*
proposal to delete from Raghbir Basi's master plan of action a
demand for a $30 fee decrease and reduced bus fares yesterday
at the annual fall general meeting.
Council regarded the request for$-
the fee decrease as hopeless, using
the example of the failure of las'
year's investigation committee as
their argument, and emphasising
the point that most students don't
miss the extra pittance tacked onto
their tuition.
Councillor Bill St. John stated,
"I think the Board of Governors
are a reputable group of men who'
can generally be regarded aa bon
est In the ways of university finance, and when they say that
they can not possibly afford to drop
the |30 from student fees, I am
prepared to believe them."

Student Apathy
Yesterday's general meeting of the AMS
waa a perfect example of the decay of democracy in miniature.
To start with, the students present did not
constitute the necessary quorum of 1,000 by
fny stretch of imagination. However, no*
body bothered to challenge the quorum for
Reasons, which, though they may be deplored,
•eem quite sensible.
In order to be able to carry on the everyday
business of running the AMS, Students'
Council needed the mandate of the student
body endorsing general AMS policies. The
meeting could have been dissolved and re-
called at some later date, but student interest
ill, the AMS being what it is, there could be
no guarantee that a quorum would be attained et a later date. Furthermore, the AMS
cannot afford to lose $100 every time students
choose to spend their lunch-hour elsewhere.
Ih view of these facts the tacit understanding that the quorum not be challenged was
quite understandable. As long as the student
body shows a lack of interest in how their
money is being spent, they will have to let
those few students, who are interested, run
•tudent affairs.
Many a democracy has gone under just in
this manner.
Let lt, however, be understood that we do
not mean to imply by any means that the
students present at the general meeting were
exceedingly interested in the proceedings.
Quite apart from the fact that the floor
emptied rather rapidly as Uie meeting pro*
gressed, even student councillors dribbled
out of the meeting as inconspicuously as they
could. This, in itself, is an indication of the
overall lack of interest.
It is not really surprising that the ranks
thinned so quidcly considering that the
handling of the agenda was really conducive
to sleep. In future perhaps, instead of starting of the meeting with a droning recitation
of minutes, these formalities could be die*
pensed with by mimeographing the minutes
and distributing them among the students.
We realize that "rules of order" make it
necessary that these matters be dealt with,
but we should not let these trivialities upset
the more important business to be dealt with.
If the agenda for future general meetings
were streamlined so that Students' Council
could face the student body without wasting
time with meaningless and boring formalities,
the odds are that these meetings will be
better attended.
Action On The Bench
What is wrong with the MAD that they
sit like lame ducks mumbling to themselves,
about the injustice that the senate has placed
upon them?
The senate, in a misguided move to protect
prospective athletes from the scourge of
extra-curricular activity, has banned transfers
from other universities and freshmen from
playing in intercollegiate sport.
But did the MAD start any concerted action to protest this ban? No!
To our knowledge no athletic organization
has done anything constructive to show the
campus or the administration that they disagree, let alone protest violently.
The Big Block club has sent no letters to
tile Students' Council or the senate. Jerry
Main, MAD president and supposed leader
of athletic activity, hasn't even asked for the
support of Students' Council.
The only sign of any concern was a group
of athletes huddled together at the AMS
meeting wondering what to do next.
The senate has passed a resolution that
should be of concern not only to athletes but
to every student participating in the extracurricular activity of his choice.
Intercollegiate athletics isn't the only activity that prevents a student from spending
all his time at his studies. The Player's Club,
the Musical Society, the Radio Society, and
especially the Publications Board are notorious for contributing to poor grades.
The prevention of poorer scholars from
joining these activities will certainly raise
the averages of these organizations. But will
the student who might have participated get
better grades?
We doubt it. It is our experience that good
grades result from a combination of brains,
balanced use of available time, and efficiency
of the individual in utilizing the time he
spends on his studies.
Restrictions and bans solve nothing. They
are encroachments on the traditional freedom of the UBC student to decide for himself
what he should support, vote for, or participate in.

Okay, kiddles, pull up your

Daddy's going to toll a story with
a message.
Once upon a time there was a
colony ot black ants. They were
probably the smartest ants In tho
whole big wide world and they
worked and they played and they
drilled in ant-hill tactics to protect themselves against the red
ants on thA other side of the
They wore very happy and
healthy and prosperous.
One day a little cluster of ants
got together in a study group, as
wns tholr custom, to discuss current problems. As they sat racking their llttlo instinefs the conversation somehow got. around to
the question of why they were
such a smart sot. One of them,
a red ant painted black who had
become famous for ills history of
tho black nnts ("Colony to Nation") ventured the opinion that
their greatness was due to the
fact, that they had trained themselves to THINK and that if they
just spent more time thinking,
Instead of wasting time In play,
they'd be even better off.
So all the ants stopped playing,
and spent the time saved ln
thinking about their greatness
and other problems.
Then ono day as the ants were
all sitting around thinking, the
hig red-ant-palnted-iblack suggested that they'd be a lot better
off yet If they stopped wasting
their time on work and other
menial efforts, and concentrated
on their real mission ln life which
was intellectual effort.
So all the ants decided that
work had no place in their life
und spent all their playtime and
work-time sitting around thinking of thoir greatness and other
One clay as the ants were all
sitting around thinking about
soil erosion in tiie Ant Arctic,
the same ant announced that they
ought to do nway with their silly
ant-hill tactics because it drilled
them in discipline aud tended to
tiif Jhamic
stifle the Inquiring mind, and
that they ought to spend the
time saved In thinking.
So the ants all agreed and
stopped playing and working and
training and concentrated entirely on matters of the intellect
—all except the red ant painted
black. He skipped back over the
to the other side of the road.
One day when all the black
ants were sitting around thinking
about their greatness the red
ants came over and took them all
prisoner, and the black nnts
couldn't do a damn thing about
it because thoy had forgotten
how to play or work or fight
. . . and you can't reason away
ten million red ants.
So the red ants took the black
ants home with them and Bet
them to work trimming the toe-

Editor, 11* Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Your editorial on the "out-of-
placeness" of Military Training
groups on the campus struck me
as being quite narrow-minded;
In spite of the fact that you used
broad mlndedness as your argument.
First, tbe groups are receiving
considerable support from students, especially this year; so
when you say "we dislike" you
do not Include a large part ot the

I do not see any objection to
students having the opportunity
of military training If they desire
lt. It Is obviously a type of education. They do not interfere
with tbe freedom of each other
or with others on the eampus,
and they are certainly not "pressure groups" any more than the
other organisations on the campus.
A large number of students
receive much-needed remuneration for their time spent taking
military training; many are completely dependent on their service group for financing their
Your principal objection was
that military training discourages
the educated outlook. Remember,
the campus military training
groups train officers. You give
the wrong impression when you
say they are trained to "obey
without question". An officer has
responsibility and ls trained to
think and decide for others—
that's why men with above-
average education are required.
Besides, only a very susceptible
student could be corrupted by
any dogmatic military principals
and lose his analytical sense of
observation during one evening

Dear Sir,
Your editorial of October 7th,
entitled "Military Training"
shows a strange ignorance of the
tradition of free apeecb on this
campus. Were any member of the
staff to present a case against
the principles of the 'OOTC to his

Curse all the readers of this
column for their lack of response
to the plea tor brilliant, entertaining contributions 1 All one can do
ls mutter obscure imprecations,
stick pins into wax images of non
contributors,  and  hope   wistfully
One must resort to a more pleasant subject to take one's mind ofi
the thought of having to.fill blot*
of white space with vacant Intel
lectual meanderlngs. A subject of
universal male appeal Instantly
comas to mind—women. '
As this ia a literary column there
will be strong Literary overtones
to anything that follows, so if you
— this is addreuing the average
male reader — are of the bestial,
non-vocal type that prefers brutal
action to the gubtle outpourings
of the past, get back to the sports
.  Women occupy a prominent part
in   all   literary   activity,   ranging
from the indelicate, teen in Byron:
"He learnt the arte of riding,
fencing, gunnery,
And how to scale a fortress —
or a nunnery."
to the idoltry ot Herrick—
"Fain  would  1  klci  ay  Julia's
dainty leg
Which ii ai  white aad  hairlesa
as an egg."
Very few writers were aa cynical
as Pope, who saw women as we
do sometimes, but unforntuaaiely
not always.
"Men, Borne to business, some to
pleaaure, take
But  every  woman  is at  heart  a
Byron again restores the balance,
as he is cynical but worldly enough
to realise that for well-arranged
corruption, men are necessary,
and a suitable environment desirable—
"What men call gallantry and the
gods adultery
Is much more common where the
climate's sultry."
He lacks, however, the strictly
practical touch of people like
Oscar Wilde who said that the
only way to behave to a woman
was to make love to her if Bhe was
pretty and to someone else lt she
was plain, or of the eighteenth
century poet who thought only of
bis stomach.
"Your dressing, dancing, gadding,
what's the good in?
Sweet lady, tell me, can you bake
a pudding?     ,
Through the ages writers have
reflected the attitude of time to
womankind. The Romans thought
of them rather sardonically, and
an old Roman proverb: "Whoever
loves e frog, thinks the frog
Venus," shows their earthly attl
tude towards love.
In the seventeenth century, worn
en were considered to be little
more than amiable bedfllows, to
entertain the husband on his occasional return from the arms o!
an actress In London..

Involved whimsy with faint overtones of happy lechery pierced
the Victorian fog, and Leigh Hunt
could even introduce u theological
"If you become a nun, dear,
A friar I will be.
In  every  celT you  run,  dear
Prtiy look behind for me.''
Modern treatment of love and
womankind had better be left for
future comment, but it seems to
be on a very practical level. Hilaira
Belloc had a pleasantly commercial attitude—
"I'm tired of Love, I'm still more
tired of Rhyme      „
But Money gives me pleasure all
the time."
T. S. Eliot gets down to fundamentals with his immortal couplet,
"That's  all   the   facts  when  you
come to brass tacks
Birth and copulation and death."
The matrelallst attitude of the
twentieth century has triumphed,
and in such matters it is perhaps
the best one to take. '

'The seventeenth century abound
ed ln literary wits, two of the
greatest of them being Samuel
Johnson and Jonathan Swift.
Dr. Johnson was once Involved
tn a conversation with an elderly
and Irritating Duchess, who com
plained, "My dear doctor, I can
never keep my ' fingernails clean
ln London.'' Dr. Johnson, goaded
to action, replied blttngly, "Perhaps, Madam, you scratch yourself."
Dean Swift was no slower at
reparte. A political opponent once
unwlsety told him lnthe heat of
an argument: " "You, Sir, will
either die of the pox or on the
gallows," aad hag been remembered since as the victim of Swift's
reply, "That depends, Sir, on
whether I embrace your mistress
or your principles.''

and who should have beaten Central, Washington except for a fow
bad breuks, will be meeting much
stronger opposition ln the Vikings.
The Western Washington team
smeared the Birds 52-6 last year
and they are rumored to be Just
as formidable this season.
Jelly, .while realizing that the
Birds will be meeting one ot thc
top teams ln the Evergreen Conference, feels that his team can
make a game out of it If they
don't run out of steam too early
He said, "In other years we have
held the VlklngB reasonably weU
until late in the third quarter. Then
our boys get tired and the superior depth of the Western Washington team begins to tell."
"If our boys play as well as they
did in spots of last week's game
and as long as they don't make
too many mistakes we should give
the Vikings a good fight."
Thunderbirds will be handicapped by the absence of Oeorge Puil.
Gorgeous George suffered a dis
located thumb ln the second quarter of last Saturday's game and
his loss for the rest of the game
possibly cost the Birds a win. He
ls currently on his honeymoon and
