 Ole Miss just keeps rollin' along
Mark Acuff is president of
the newly-formed College..
Press Service of the United
States. His trip to the Oxford,
Mississippi campus is his first
assignment for the new service.
—The University of Mississippi
is more than a university to the
white population of the South—
it is "Ole Miss," an institution
in itself.
If Southerners were to pick
the last institution they would
want to see integrated, it would
be Ole Miss.
But sooner or later it was
bound to happen.
And it did. James Meredith,
Negro Air Force veteran, 29-
year-old son of a Mississippi
cotton farmer, grandson of a
slavee, applied for admission to
Ole Miss, federal court order
in hand.
At last count, there were two
dead and 75 injured, and the
Ole Miss campus looked like
the scene of a recent military
battle. Troops continue rounding up rioters and eliminating
the last pockets of resistence.
I spent the day on the Ole
Miss campus and I confess to
being frightened by the atmosphere of tension and bitterness.
I had the feeling mayhem could
break loose any moment, and
it invariably did.
^ The University of Mississippi
is situated in the northern farming area of the state, about 70
miles southeast of Memphis
The area is poor. On small side
roads Whites and Negroes go
about the business of scratching a bare existence from the
tired soil. Cotton and soybeans
are the primary crops.
The farms are tiny, the
houses in poor condition and
the people exhibit a frustration that come from continual

BOOST FOR CO-EDUCATION is given in new Education building, where 26 left-handed desks
have been provided for hand-holders and non-conformists. Testing the seats are Science students Clint Pulley and Janet Matheson. Building is the first on campus to accommodate lefthanders.
Blood drive falls 350 pints short
UBC's 1962 Blood Drive fell 350 pints
short of its objective, the Red Cross said Tuesday.
Students donated a total of 1,625 pints compared to 1,864 pints last fall. The quotas for
both drives were the same.
Blood drive co-chairman Alan Owen
blamed UBC's smallpox scare for the quota
Red Cross officials refused to take blood
Smallpox victim avoided people
from anyone who was vaccinated because it
is a mild infection.
Owen said the majority of student blood
would have been useless if tests on suspected
smallpox carrier Kaneung Watanachai had
proved positive.

poverty with little hope that
things will ever get better.
The Ole Miss campus is on
the south side of Oxford, several blocks from the city-
county building square where
rioting broke out.
It is a medium sized campus as American campuses go.
Its fraternity and sorority
rows are lined with huge houses, some of the old plantation style, some of modern design, the classroom buildings
are large. Work is in progress
on a new science centre.
The campus approach is
along tree-lined University
Avenue. At the entrance to
the school stands several monuments to Mississippi's Confederate War dead. Behind the
monuments, in front of the
Administration building is a
large circular park, scene of
the latest riots. A large
American flag flies from a pole
in the middle of the park.
Football and fear
The girls at Ole Miss are as
beautiful as they are reputed
to be. These days they drive
by in new cars sporting bumper stickers reading "Help Ross
keep Mississippi Soverign,'
and "Impeach Earl Warren."
Many Ole Miss students left
the campus to attend the Mississippi-Kentucky football
game in Jackson, the state
capital. Freshman beanies,
sporting the "M" and in confederate colors were sprinkled
thickly around the campus.
The student newspaper, The
Mississipian" referred to an
ovation given Mississippi Governor Ross Barnett when he
turned away James Meridith at
the gates to Ole Miss the day
before. |
Students I talked to were
quiet and tense. One girl expressed a commonly held opinion when she said "I just wish
this thing would get over, one
way or the other." I saw a
petition backing governor Barnett being circulated in the
student union building. It had
pages of signatures.
Confederate flags
Perhaps the most prophetic
statement I heard was from
the student who said "You
know, what tees all these reporters off? They want to see
us throw some bricks or something."
Confederate flags were selling rapidly in the student
union store. They were everywhere,    hanging    even    from

He didn't want to spread rash
Kaneung Watanachai avoided people on purpose.
DThe quiet, 25-year-old Thai
student was afraid he might
give a rash he got in Bangkok
this summer to other UBC students.
He didn't know that his disease might be smallpox.
. Watanachai said in an interview at Shaughnessy Hospital
Tuesday he had had the rash
on his arms, legs and feet
since August.
But it was unnoticeable until he got his smallpox vaccination to come to Canada.
"It got worse after the vac

Watanachai attended one
day of classes here before going to doctors to find out what
the rash was. He was immediately placed in isolation at Vancouver General Hospital.
Doctors feared smallpox.

But laboratory tests in Ottawa have now determined
that Watanachai does not have
smallpox, but doctors have
still not determined the cause
of the rash.
Watanachai now is bored.
Beside his bed in the tiny
hospital room lie a stack of
newspapers telling the story
of Kaneung Watanachai, suspected smallpox carrier.
"I never believed I had
smallpox," Watanachai said, "I
didn't feel sick at all.

Freedom— but watch what you say
It is almost universally acknowledged that
democracy is inefficient.
Totalitarianism, on the other hand, can be
a highly efficient basis for political systems.
But democracy, because it respects the
rights of individuals— their right to speak, hold
opinions, believe in any or no religion, and do
as they please within the limits of the law—
has been accepted by the western or "free"
countries of the world.
It is frightening then to read the article from
the New Democratic Youth newsletter reprinted below.
The RCMP, for efficiency's sake we
have to suppose, is about the country again
gathering information on students and their
activities. The information, they say, is to be
put in confidential files and used only to help
in preventing disturbances by disruptive and
subversive elements.
Supporters of these RCMP activities suggest that as long as no one has anything to hide
and as long as information gathered is confidential, there can be no objection.
We agree, but say there is an inherent danger in this sort of activity.
Although  the  information  is  confidential
under the present government it may at some
time in the future be made public—either
because an agent speaks out, as below, or because of a Change of policy.
As with information gathered on students
in the U.S. during the 1930's, the files now
being compiled may be dredged up and used
against innocent persons in the future.
Or activities which are not illegal now may
at sometime in the future be illegal and this
information used, if not for legal conviction,
at least to defame the character of a particular
We are in danger of placing ourselves in the
same position as the U.S. Although there is
"free speech" in the U.S., professors have to
come to Canada for free speech.
Even here, now they have to watch what
they say—as do students. Thus we have if not
official, then actual infringement of freedom
of speech.
Democracy is inefficient and requires certain risks to be taken. One of those risks is to
have enough confidence that Canadian citizens
—and especially students—believe in the system and will defend it without the help of
"undercover   consciences."

Letters to the editor
Attendance measure of lazy minds
Peter Stursburg will be speaking on campus
at the end of this week on the Challenge of the
Cold War, but the proportion of students in his
audience will be negligible.
The* topic is of transcendent importance,
and a portion of the student body must be
aware of this.
Stursberg, editor of a Canadian-American
news service, is well qualified to speak.
Why, then, do we stay away in droves?
Because of the hour—8:15 p.m.—and the
At that time the student mind, such as it is,
is directed to activities of quie a different nature.
Small wonder, then, that President John
Macdonald can accuse us—as representatives
of our society—of having lazy minds.
The Vancouver Institute, which sponsors
Stursberg in the first of a year-long series of
stimulating, topical lectures, has had a noticeable lack of success in attracting student audiences.
Since the Institute is granted free use of
University facilities and draws most of its support from the adult academic community, it
manages quite well without us.
But how much would our educational experience be enriched by attendance at, for instance, Dean F. H. Soward's yearly "Review
of International Affairs," or President Mac-
donald's talk on "Higher Education: the way
The Institute has been operating since 1916
and over the years it has gone to considerable
trouble and expense to attract speakers to UBC.
Occasionally—as two years ago when James
M. iMinifie drew 3500 to the Armory—they attract a student audience, but for the most part
only the more mature members of the community take advantage of this opportunity.
It's about time we woke up.
So this Saturday take your date to hear
Peter Stursburg, 8:15 in Buchanan 106.
You can always go to the party afterward.

RCMP agent on campus
The following interview of
a former RCMP agent appeared in the September issue
of "Viewpoint," the New
Democratic Youth newsletter,
"to dispel the myths created
by the recent red-baiting by
some ultra-righi former
RCMP agents."
Q. How did the RCMP first
approach you?
A. The RCMP got in touch
with my father, and asked
him about my participation
in the local CUCND branch.
I went to the RCMP office
worried tft'at there might be
trouble for me or my family.
They asked me why I was
in CUCND. What were my
personal convictions? Was I
pro or anti-Communist? I
said "anti." They asked me
sbout some friends of mine
and did I think they were
communists? "No." How did
I get involved m the CUCND?
Was it a front"? I didn't think
so. And so on.
*     *     *
Q. What were you  asked to
find out?
A. They asked me to help
them get a clearer picture of
local university student activities. This was presented as
something that would help
them determine whether
there was really any Communist participation in the
CUCND and the New Party
Youth, as had been maintained by MRA and other
rightists in town.
Q. Does the RCMP concern
itself only with communists?
A. With them, and with
Trotskyites (e.g. Young Socialist Alliance), anarchists,
radical right-wingers, and in
fact any group that threatens
violence and revolution. To
this end, they exchange information with other police
forces in the non-communist
world; and they survey fairly impartially all political
and pressure groups in the
country by employing agents,
who participate and then report on signs of these groups
being infiltrated, or being in
themselves totalitarian.
*     *     *
Q. What did you find out?
A. Quite a bit. For instance,
I found out that most of the
far-left activity at my and
other universities is Trotsky-
ite, not Stalinist communist.
In the very biggest universities, there are some Stalinist
communist clubs. They work
especially on the New Party's
and CUCND's newer members.
*     *     *
In the groups I belonged to,
the control was definitely in
moderate hands. Most of the
trots were not actually students at the university, but
attended meetings and had
very few supporters in the
college groups.
I found out what a very
determined group the trots
are, how dedicated'to Young
Socialist Alliance, hard-working, and fanatically persistent they are. I also learned
they had relatively few members, and I decided that an
s.lert membership in any organization could thwart their
Q. Why   did   you   quit   the
A. I quit*because I felt uncomfortable reporting on colleagues who trusted me. Although I recognize that the
work was necessary, it caused
great  emotional  strain.
AMS inspection best
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The council proposal to
place the power of housing control in the hands of the administration would have the following effect.
Representatives of the administration would inspect the accomodations and accept for
listing only those that pass.
The next logical step is to
recommend students stay only
in inspected accomodation and
would culminate in giving the
administration the power to
dictate in which houses students may or may not reside.
The alternative: leave the
supervision of accommodation
in the hands of the AMS; provide the inspectors (paid students) with a clearly defined
list of minimum accommodation requirements. In this way
the power will remain in student hands and can be revoked
at any time.
Yours truly,

A few students I talked to

few seemed to realize that
closing the school would mean

But the younger students
were not worried about losing
credits. They were by far more

Oxford townspeople expressed the fear that if the
University were closed it would
mean the end of their businesses. Two thousand Oxford
citizens are employed by the
university. The already shaky
economy of Northern Mississippi would collapse if the university were closed and local
businessmen know that.

they knew was that a black

Nero C. Caesar,
Whenever conversation on the campus
turns to music, someone is sure to mention
the name of Nero Claudius — the man
with the golden lyre. No other virtuoso
on this difficult instrument has ever come
close to the renown achieved by this boy
from Antium. In his formative college
years, Nero was something of a traditionalist, but at his apex he came very
close to what moderns call "Le Jazz
Hot". Those of his contemporaries and
relations who survived the era he dominated — and they are regrettably few —
recall that in his final phase he was
strangely preoccupied with torch songs.
His career reached its peak in Rome in
a blazing performance of his famous lyre
solo against a trumpet obligato by a
group of cats known as the Praetorian
Guardsmen. Rome was never the same
