Semi-Finalists Chosen
in UBC Glamour Contest
Judges chose four beautiful
UBC co-eds as semi-finalists on
this campus in the continent-
wide Glamour Contest which is
being run by Glamour Magazine. The four were Tani Camp-
; bell, Carolyn Wallace, Molly
McFetrich and Janet Robertson.
Eleven girls paraded in Mildred Brock Lounge yesterday,
competing in the Glamour Contest.
All hoped to win the trip to
■. New York. The, contestants, all
from sororities or clubs on campus, were: Tani Campbell, Carolyn Wallace, Donna Davidson,
Denice De Laval, Barbara Drew,
lge Gulbis, Judy Jack, Molly McFetrich, Marilyn 0*Toole, Janet
Robertson, and Joyce Wilson.
The judges were Marie
Moreau, Louise Van Allan, Sandra Shepard, Kerry White, and
Michael Sinclair. Miss Moreau
commented, "I have never seen
better dressed, better groomed
girls, that were so-apt to fashion . . . they compared favourably with girls on other campi."
All judges echoed Miss Moreau's
statement, and Mr. Sinclair
went, on to say that all the girls
were lovely, and it was very
difficult to choose between them.
Fire in the broom closet of
Brock Hall gave a hot prelude to
the Aggy Banquet Wednesday
The fire was not caused by
four engineers roasting #einers
in the closet, but by a cigarette
butt which some careless ^'Brock-
type" threw into a garbage can
(apparently mistaking it for the
telephone booth). ;
Peter Meekinson sent in the
alarm at 6:20 Wednesday night,
after noticing smoke pouring
out of the fireplace. The big
question which comes up now
is "what was that garbage can
doing in the broom closet?"
Ian MacKenzie, Assistant
Brock Attendant, stated that the
garbage was placed in the closet
because they were in a hurry
cleaning up the hall for the banquet.
Damages  caused toy the fire
were estimated at $306.00.        .   j
to refuse, but Old Sadie will be
watching YOU and we think you
can expect the royal treatment.
A special pep meet in the Auditorium is scheduled for Friday
noon . . . and boys, it won't
cost you a red cent . . . Just hang
on to the arm of any co-ed, who
by the way has to pay one thin
dime, and you may enter free.
Please let go of arms when you
enter the Auditorium, the seats
can only accommodate one person at a time. Excess arms will
be donated tb the female cause
later that night.
Top notch entertainment, especially geared to the little woman, has been planned . . . with

Better  Deal  For
Campus  Demanded
Mr. Robert Bonner, provincial Attorney-General, may find
himself running against thousands of UBC students in the
the coming provincial election. '*
Out of a series of soap-box
speeches, sponsored by the Student Christian Movement, has
come an idea with great potentialities: UBC should be represented in the provincial government by a student.
Less Work
Urged For
The Students Council should
concern itself more with policy
and less with work, John Goodwin told the Haskins Commission on Student Government yesterday at noon.
He envisioned Council as «
twelve-man, policy-making body,
the Undergraduate Societies
Committee as a work-horse or*
ganization to administrate that
policy, and the Student Court
as a punitive body, the only appeal from which would be the
Faculty Council.
Goodwin gave five reasons
why AMS Elections did not
draw many candidates.
1. Council membership entails
too much work and responsibility.
2. Council members cannot devote enough time to their
studies because of the heavy
work load.
Communications between the
"Brock clique" and the rest
of the campus are virtually
hon-existant, non-Brock types
do not have their latent interest in student government
"Joe-jobs" like picking up
lunch bags and stopping eating in the Brock (Disciplinary Committee), detract from
the prestige of the job, a factor in every aspirants decision to run.
The attitude that, "If the
Council is efficient and happy, we do not have to worry
—let them be."
The suggestion has arisen because of growing discontent
among students who feel that
the university is not adequately
represented by the present MLA-
for its constituency, Robert Bonner, the provincial Attorney-
The initiator of the movement,
Alan Rimmer, lashed out against
the Socred Government for failing to keep its promise of matching, dollar-for-dollar to a total
of $10 millions, any contributions made by the public to the
UBC Development Fund.
Rimmer claimed the Government owes UBC $7.5 million in
matching* grants.
To correct this situation Rim-
mer's UBC Voters' Association
suggested that students should
nominate one of their number to
run as an independent candidate, having no political affiliations, who could give the Uni-/;
versity direct representation hi
the House, as well as draw attention to the njseds of the University in a drarhifctic way.
The plans of the group aC
present are to:
1—Hold  a general  meeting #of
the student body to establish
the candidate's platform.
2—Consult with campus organizations.
3—Elect the candidate.
4—Conduct   a  house - to - house
campaign to solicit votes for
the candidate by impressing
on voters the needs of the
student and the advantages of
the idea.
In the elections for the Mock
Parliament on February 11 the
Socreds placed a low fourth followed only by the CPC.   Thig'
might indicate a rising tide of
discontent    against the present
government  from   the   student
However, of the 10,000 students at UBC, at least half of
them are either registered in
other B.C. constituencies or are
not B.C. residents.
So, if the UBC Voters Association does run a candidate in the
coming provincial election, the
majority of the votes must come
from the non-student residents
of the West Point Grey-ridings

The proposal of the UBC Voters' Association to sponsor
a student in the provincial legislature is undoubtedly worthy
of our support. Here at last is an effective method of increasing the volume of our little voice, heretofore merely a squeak
from the corner.
Two of the many requirements of this representative are
intelligence and verbal forcefulness. And if by chance his
recommendations were not heeded, then it is possible that his
presence alone would serve as a reminder to the other MLAs
that we expect the government's promises to the university
to be carried out. That is, a student MLA would take the place
of the underworked consciences of forgetful delegates. v
However, we musUnot lose sight of .the fact that a student
MLA would be representing hiany individuals whose only
connection with the university is that they live comparatively
f"' "r it.  He must therefore be  well-informed  on all  issues
It with by the legislature, not simply those which affect
In addition ta these qualifications, he would also have to
©josses those characteristics wh^ch one usually expects in an
JpLA (and seisin gets) integrityj forcefulness, reliability, and
devotion to tnOjlthhate good, not just the next election.
* The initiators of this movement stress that a student dele-
•t^femust hav^o political affiliations. Rather, he must follow
3>rincifBes insfeld of party politics. This is essential as he
WouloThave to win the support of many partisan individuals
who place the welfare of their party above that of the university.
The backing.of the Ubyssey will be forthcoming if the^
promotion of such a.candidate is done with the utmost sincerity.
Should our candidate be elected we would be prepared to
print regular reports of legislative  activities.
An excellent suggestion has been placed before the
students of this university. It is the time to act, not the time
to" be apathetic and disinterested. Let's make this proposal more
than & suggestion. Let's make it an actuality.
A warning note to Mr. Bennett: U.B.C. is mobilising its
forces. It is through with petitioning, begging, and trekking for
recognition. It is going to iheet you on your rounds, the political
Thahk .God Ihey have seen the light at last!

They really have.
At last they are gibing to let all our student councillors
be acclaimed to office. ,..>..

tliinit, six people were spared the expense of mounting the
campaign that would have been necessary if they had been

John Goodwin doubted THE SYSTEM. The silly ass went
out and spent $25 on posters, pictures, and tags, and now he
will not have to use them, because THE SYSTEM worked.
John was acclaimed to office.
But the other five did not'doubt THE SYSTEM. They
didn't spend $25 on posters, pictures and tags. They saved their
money for the victory celebration.
They really did see the light.
They really did save the money.
-After all, its much better this way. Just think how much
doubt and uncertainty could be avoided if nobody had to run
for office. Why should .we' put a good man through the torture
of waiting for a week to find out whether he will or will not
be the proud wearer of a blue blazer in the coming year?
Why not let him find out months in advance. He could be told
that he was not chosen to be acclaimed. He could be told that
some other member of the Brock Gang was being groomed
to slip into the clique. Just think . . ".
And not only the candidates will save money under THE
SYSTEM, the AMS will save all that cash they put out for
ballots, and the cokes for the eager workers who count the
ballots, and for thumbtacks to put all those nominations up
on the bulletin board.
It really is nice that THE SYSTEM is in the light at last.
It really is nice.
Buck A Square
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
It has been a week since Mr.
Tim Buck visited the Campus
and the hue and cry about the
reception which he got still'has
not diminished. Everybody who
had thrown as much as an embarrassing question on this
self-styled prophet is called a
juvenile delinquent.
I do not want to protect the
behaviour of those who tried
to stop Mr. Buck, but I want
to point out that they are the
only ones who at least feel the
grave danger what Tim-Buck
personifies and considering the
circumstances they did not
have any other way to express
their feelings.
In my opinion Mr. Buck
should be silenced with firm
regulations and not with a few
oranges and paperbags pelted
at him, but I learned to know
the true face of the communism from personal experience
which the students on this
campus fortunately lack yet. I
saw what happened in Europe
when Hitler's brownshirts and
after them Stalin's hordes overran it. I learned that the only
medicine against dictature and
totalitarian terrorism is the
preventive medicine. Only if
the maniacs of totalitarianism
are mercilessly silenced before
they can spread their deadly
bacteria, can ^ve hope to evade
the slavery in which they try
to push us.
I only want to point out that
the only people with enough
determination to show their
conscience toward the future of
their country, toward the ideals
of freedom, even toward the
better future of mankind, are
ironically those few, who have
at least the courage to throw
some lunchbags at Tim Buck,
this spreader of leprosy. The
sad thing is that their action
was so half-hearted and looked
more like a nasty joke than a
sign of serious repulsion.
' We have ten thousand students on this campus. Ten
thousand young men and women who in a short time will
become a substantial part in
the upper strata of our society.
They will form that nucleus in
this country whose critical
judgment the less educated
masses will adopt. Last week
these ten thousand let fill four
positions out of five on the
Student Council by acclamation. Ten thousand young men
and women with a supposedly-
better than average intellect,
behaved like a herd of cattle.
They did just what the communists wanted them to do,- because for the communists every
passive, thoughtless individual
is worth as much as an active
party member. It is frightening to think what would have
happened if the communists
had discovered some constitu-
tional loophole and had slipped
their men into the positions
which are filled now by acclamation.
^The Nazis used to say "who
does not support us, is against
us." The communists have
' more finesse, they changed this
slogan and are declaring now
"who does not actively oppose
us, potentially is a supporter
of our cause."
The fathers of these ten
thousand students condemned
the German people for their
passivity, which helped Hitler
and his minority group into
power, although the Germans
did not have a historical example to learn from. These ten
thousand have every opportunity to learn what a dictatorial
system means, whether it is
communist or Nazi. They can
observe and analyze the results
of such a system and they are
fortunate to be able to do it
without the sufferings of personal experience. Instead of doing this they lead a thoughtless life and what little activity
left in them, they channel it
into childish extracurricular
activities. Those few who, however ridiculously, tried to silence the pusher of communist
drugs, get silenced by some
fifth columnists and ignoramuses Who think that communism is only a slightly different
set of political thoughts, about
which it is intellectually fashionable to lead some discussions. These self - appointed
champions of democracy fail to
see that there is absolutely no
difference between Tim Buck
and the swastika smearers.
Meanwhile the Communist
Party sits back and enjoys the
show. With one slick manouvre
they have succeeded to silence
again some of those few who
still actively oppose them and
the actual silencing was done
by those halfwits, who think it
is a very noble deed to protect
poor dear old Tim Buck. Next
time some of those orange-
throwers will not even throw
air orange, but will join the indifferent majority. Slowly all
opposition will quiet down.
Everybody   will   assume   the
comfortable, relaxing attitude
of opinionlessness and then the
reds will not need nuclear missiles to force their "ideology"
on this country also. Then these
ten thousand will see a different phase of the communism
and will learn what it means
to live as a slave in a Soviet

Reserves insure
against reverses"
Knute Rockne, the famous football coach, devised
a system of substituting players that practically
insured his Notre Dame team of victory. His strong
second team wore down the opposition early in-the
game. Then the irrepressible first team would move
in, fresh and sound, to clinch the victory. Notre
Dame ran up a record of victories that has never
been matched.
Of course, this system depends on strong and
dependable reserves. Unfortunately, most of us
can't count on a large reserve to fall back on in the
Game of Life, particularly in these days of the
shrinking dollar. Only too often, we fall short of our
goals because we cannot muster the "shock
troops" at the right time.
That's one reason why sound insurance planning
is so important, because it does assure you of
reserve protection whenever the need arises. You
can protect your income, your home, your health,
your family... so that your struggles for them
need never be lost. Call the NALAC representative
for a talk. He is part of a team that knows the
importance of reserve strength!

The Greater Cut of Unkindness
"Let us   be  kind,  and rather
cut a little.
Than fall, ai\d bruise to death"
There it is, measure for
measure, the intention of the
adaptor and producer of
N.B.C.'s production of Shakespeare's The Tempest. Realizing that some cutting and adaption must be made to suit the
medium, these persons took
hold of a text, investigated it
with the dull knife of a butcher's apprentice, then slashed
at the still quick and grinning
flesh, until no glow of the
Globe was left to light the
actors along their precarious
way. For the power of a television producer is awful. The
only people able to check him
are. the financial hacks of his
company, and if the sponsor
doesn't complain, the producer's head rests comfortably and
securely upon his shoulders.
However, producers usually
do try hard to do what they
think is right <and surely, in
the case of The Tempest, the
sponsors minded their own
business so that here, producer and adaptor both must
share much of the blame for
what was almost a farcical performance, and the cast must
share the rest.
Initially, the fault stemmed
from a deliberate misapprehension of the conditions under
which Shakespeare wrote his
plays. These plays were all designed to take .place on a three-
dimensional stage—up and
down, left and right, above and
below—and not in the plastic,
almost four-dimensional medium that is television. The producer knew this well enough,
and could not see how, without
presenting the play in its traditional pattern, he might
avoid the difficulties that were

As a prelude to
presented. In the end, he took
the easy way out, shooting
close-up shots to accentuate
what were often unnecessary
facial disturbances. (Poor Roddy 'McDowall as Ariel, came
in for much of that.)
Furthermore, the plays were
to be peopled with flesh-and-
blood nympths beautiful
enough to attract kings, and
boys coy enough to enslave
lechers—not visions that appeared in a wave of my ,hand
from crystal balls. And again,
the actors were supposed to
show genuine emotion—anger,
sorrow, greed, jealousy—not
a power of grace that would
sweeten the nature of an angel.
Lastly, wherever suggestions
.of the fantastic were included
in the play, these were to be
put over by the powers of acting and speech—true suggestion—rather than by coy montage shots.
All these things the adaptor
and the producer understood,
and failed to realize. But this
was not their worst fault. No!
that was to remove the play altogether from the bounds of
space dictated by common-
, sense, and to make the whole
earth available to their characters. For The Tempest is concerned with an Utopian, island,
rather than with the waste
spaces of the world. Only in
imagination, in dreams, did
Shakespeare draw the clouds
back to reveal something
Against the island, hemmed
in by the sea, Prospero is set
to exercise his wizardy in order to regain his Dukedom of
Milan. Now Prospero is a man
whom we might reasonably expect to be at least angry at the
scurvy treatment he has earlier
received, and certainly Shakespeare thought of him as a cold,
almost sinister figure, with
true love only for his daughter. He frequently refers, in
opprobrious terms, to his brother who .. .". . . . Made such
a sinner of his memory,/To credit his own lie, . . . "and to
the King of Naples . . .". . . an
enemy/To me inveterate . . ."
The common interpretation of
Prospero's role certainly calls
for a quality of malice to Be
directed against these persons,
even in the last act, where, forgiving Alonso and Antonio, he
still is unable to rid his mind
of the memory of their cruel .
behaviour. "Unnatural though
thou art," he says, "I do forgive thee."
But Maurice Evans, as Prospero, displayed throughout the
production a singular misunderstanding of Prospero's reasonable dislike for his brother
and his royal neighbour. He
softened his face and his voice
whenever he spoke of them,
and one expected him, when
finally he came face to face
with' his enemies, to put them

across his knee and chastise
them, in the English manner,
kindly. Only to Richard Burton's Caliban did he show true
malice, and then only when he
reminded Caliban of that
beast's attempted rape of Miranda, for which, considering
the scanty garment in which
the wizard allowed her to run
around, he might reasonably
have been expected to blame
only himself.
This misapplication of motive was evident everywhere in
the production. N.B.C.'s Antonio, . for instance was seen to
urge Sebastian on to fratricide
from the most disinterested
motives,- instead of from a personal concern with the crown
of Naples, and Sebastian, instead of presenting the picture
of weak cupidity that was intended for him, stepped into
the Twelfth Night role of Sir
Andrew Aguecheek.
Lee Remmick's Miranda
probably presented the greatest innovation to Shakespearian theatre since Shakespeare
himself went to the continent
for his material. Soft, winsome,
and middle-Western, she is
ideally suited to the booted
and divided-skirt cowgirl part
that she played so well without those traditional ornaments. At times Miss Remmick
displayed all the emotion suitable to one whose faithful steed

wasn't his fault that the producer didn't cast a'fifteen year
old Ariel.
Richard Burton's Caliban
was the best piece of theatre
that was presented in this performance. Beginning very
slowly, Burton realized to the
full all the opportunities to put
the rest of the cast in the
shade. One wished that Shakespeare had included a scene
solely between Caliban and
Ariel, so that Burton and McDowall might have made , full
use of their talents. Burton
glowered, frothed, and cringed
delightfully, and the finest
piece of real acting in the
whole performance was his

has been harnessed to a horrid
farm cart. She will undoubtedly be offered a role opposite
James Arness. in one of the
Gunsmoke series.
Two actors must come in for
special attention. Roddy McDowall was given what, under
the circumstances, was an extremely difficult role, and improved on it with magnificent
skill and courage.
Ariel, written as a boy's
part, is increasingly played by
oldes actors, and it offers them
great trouble. Under the conditions established by poor
adaption and direction, McDowall played his part for all
it was worth, and so pulled the
producer out of a really nasty
spot. I would quibble with
much of his acting, of course,
and especially with his excessive use of fantastic hand images, but most of the time he
played what was left of
Shakespeare in fine, trouper
tradition. He left me with a
feeling of distaste that has
since turned to admiration. It

he remembered . . ,

upon Prospero's head.
What else? There were too
many cuts, both of lines and
of whole characters, and there
were too many rearrangements. Maurice Evajns, who
must have tangled with the
producer over the part of
Prospero. was not given his
way, and the wild-western element predominated strongly.
No attempt at all was made to
give appearance to Shakespeare's wider view of the Universe, and this world of men.

saur's Wedding, titivates the
palate very satisfactorily. If it
does not send us replete from
the theatre, the reasons are not
far to seek.
The modern palate is adjusted to problem plays of one sort
and another. It is a poor play
we are' almost tempted to
think, that does not provide us
with a good indigestible problem. Comedy, even musical
comedy, has become perverted
to serve some eocio-psychologi-
cal end.
Mr. ■ Soule's comedy leaves
us no indigestible residue, and
we leave the theatre unsatisfied. It is just a matter of pal-;,
ate adjustment. In the Old
Days, we could have been
happy seeing a jolly comedy
by Ivor Novello, with nothing
left in the craw. Nowadays
even Terence Rattigan has to
give us something we can construe as a problem.
Gently satirizing, as it does,
some no-longer-extant conventions such as chivalry, The
Dinosaur's Wedding seems
rather to satirize earlier spoofs
upon deeds of derring-do, when
they were not such dodos as
they are today. Arms and the
Man is one such spoof.
Opening night found The
Dinosaur's Wedding an almost
faultless production. It is a
well-made play, with cast to
match. Characters come on and
off stage with consumate ease
and grace. They are all there
in plenty of time for the final
curtain, so that they don't have
to scramble in from the wings
for curtain calls. Little Amelia,
played by Barbara Jay, is sufficiently vacuous. Prospective
mother-in-law, played by Rosemary Malkin, is sufficiently
charming and conniving. Peter
Haworth is sufficiently dino-
saurian. Hilda Thomas is a
wonderfully irascible old retainer. Nonie Stewart would
bring out the dinosaur in any
man. John Sparks, who now
has only to walk onto a stage
to.be wildly acclaimed, almost
deserves the acclaim, and Sam
Payne is urbane and polished
as his_ father. Last, and perhaps foremost, Ian Thorne!!—
here perhaps we may be permitted the luxury of subjectivity—did not fail to raise our
critical metabolic rate several
points with his wonderfully infectious   vitality.

This story won the McMillan

sort of story I much care for.
However, one must say that
Miss Sanford has an excellent

and undergraduate members of
the university.
The Ben-Hill Tout competition began in nineteen fifty-six
to honor the memory of the
well-liked and admired university photographer who died of
cancer in the "previous year.
His will left a small bequest to
the University and it was decided to use the funds from it
to set up an annual competition and exhibition. Each year
since then has seen an increase
in theability of university amateur photographers to take and
develop their own photographs, and the present exhibition is the best of what
has been a very good showing.

Judges opinions on the submissions were often at variance, and their selections
were a surprise to many people. They were very critical, as
indeed they should be. Generally, their conclusion was
that the photographs showed
technical excellence, and photographic artistry.
Amongst others, there is
group of Mr. Ben-Hill Tout's
own technical photographs,
made while he was the official
photographer for the university. Besides illustrating the
quality of his work, they
should serve as a measure for
amateurs to compare their own
attempts with.
Our old friend Charlie, the
autobiographer, dropped in
yesterday looking agitated and
profound, or perhaps only profoundly  agitated.
"Well! Here's Charlie," we
greeted him jovially, all fat
and sassy and full of undergraduate assurance.
"Where?" he asked. "Oh,
yeah. Here," he continued, sitting down. "But not for long."
"Charlie! Not leaving?"
"In two months," he said,
"and, you know, I can't get
worked up about it? The way
this place is set up, you start
saying goodbye the moment
you enter, and every subsequent mid-term is another kiss-
off. And when you get to the
end, you just roll off."
"Into what?" we asked nervously.
Charlie spread his hands
and threw back his head and
cried aloud, scattering into confusion a pile of copy and
frightening away a nearby
Law student who had wandered vaguely into our presence
in search, of orthodoxy
"Now take it easy, Charlie,"
we pleaded, upset. "Carf we
get   you  anything?"
"No! There's nothing to get
anymore," Charlie bellowed,
springing to his feet. "Nothing
here.   And  nothing  out   there
"Out where?" .we asked
faintly, knowing full Well
what was out there. But who
wants to admit it?    ; f
"Look," he said *'for example: there used to be a few,
not many, Beats out there.
But by now, all Of North America has dressed in black and
gone to a Beat place for the
weekend; they have looked
about them, seething with distraction, with thoughts of
Home—their washingmachines
full of children, their babysitters full of guile—they have
seen about them their fellows,
spending the weekend the
same way, and have gone
back Home, announcing that
there is nothing to be found
in such places. Having bought
Chablis instead of poetry, they
are no wiser."
"But we . . ."
"But me no buts and we
me no we's," Charlie snorted,
growing three feet taller and
towering over us. "That's just
the trouble. Everybody says
"we", and that's the end of it.
You can attack all you like,
but your attack is just routed
through channels like everything else."
He shrank back suddenly into a chair. "Trying to find a
single individual with whom
to deal," he sighed, "is like
trying to pluck a single ceramic tile from a wall of ceramic tiles. All you do is break
your knuckles."
"Charlie," we implored.
'What about the hope of
"What about it? Wait a minute, I'll show you. Hey," he
called to a nearby senior, "step
over here a minute, will you?"
"Sure," said the senior, and
strolled over to him noncha-
lontly to lean against the door
Charlie peered at him. "Are
you educated?" he asked at
"Sure," said the senior.
Charlie winced. "Demonstration please," he said.
"Sure," said the senior, and
furrowing his "brow he intoned:
"Job Security, Explosion, Enlightened Democracy, Payola,
Beatnik." He slumped, gasping
with effort.
Charlie waved him away,
weeping. "Thanks a lot,a he
said, "You might as well go."
"Sure," said the senior. "I
got to go to a committee meeting  anyway."
We sat silent for a moment
and watched him stroll across
the Brock and into one of those
rooms from which come the
sounds of gavels and of sinister laughter.
"Charlie," we asked quaver-
ingly "are these the untouched, or the Untouchables?"
Charlie wept.
Hope dawned. We sat up*
alert. "But what ! about the
creative minority?" we asked.
'Hah!" Charlie said. "Hah!"
He began to count- on his fingers. "Actors: after four years
of studying Classical unities,
after four years of living the

be demonstrated before the
He counted off a second finger. "Writers, they produce
the scripts that the actors play.
They . . ."
"Charlie! They're not all
that bad."
"No," he said. "They're not.
There are some good young
poets and critics and fiction
writers, even some of them on
this campus. But these tend to
get lost in the majority of
those who, having made the
frightening discovery that they
possess some sort of creative
ability, immediately ally themselves with the Establishment
so that they will only have to
exploit that ability superficially. You know, one could very
easily get the impression from
most of the literature produced
in our universities that the
country is populated souly by
menopausal mothers, English
instructors, and baffled stenographers. Sure, there is some
good writing, but who is there
to read it, who is willing to
find it among that wilderness
of literary conventions posing
as short story collections and
poetry   anthologies?"

we cried, brandishing our cigarette lighter in lieu of a

"Well, it's the best we have,"
we  said  defensively.
"Yes, it's better than 'Stigmatized', or whatever that

rather like saying a garotte is
better than a chain mace."

The cat was brought up
from below, and passed carefully into the daylight of the
maindeck. We. stood about it
as it squatted in a dirty and
untidy heap in a pool of
sticky caulking tar.
"The poor bloody animal!"
said one, but we ignored him,
and stared at the creature
that had caused such an upheaval ^amongst us. It was a
shabby, fight-torn torn, now
cowed and quiet, but once
king of its own dark world,
down there amongst the oakum-fleas and the rats.
"I don't believe it," said
the cook. ''That can't be the
thing that caused all that
noise," and he loosed a kick
with his hob-nail boots that
sent the animal scudding
across the deck to fetch up
against a ventilator under the
after bulkhead.
All at once we sprang at it,
kicking and stamping while
the cat fought furiously, with
a new desire for life, to
escape us.
The galley-boy finished it.
He fell to his knees, and attacked the animal with his
teeth, and their two faces cut
at each other in the shadow
of the white housing.

So he did without the trimmings and set.
himself to the hard, heavy task of doing

U(BC Thunderbirds have played their last game in the Inter-City Basketball League.
According to Athletic Director R. J. "Bus" Phillips it is
certain the Thunderbirds league competition will be confined
to the WCIAU next season.
Mr. Phillips stated there was
no reason why UBC should
compete in the Inter - City
League in future years. They
were forced by the Canadian
Amateur Basketball Association
and the B.C. Association to play
out a schedule in the city in order to qualify for Olympic trials
this year.

Birds From
B.C. Playoff
UBC Thunderbirds were eliminated Tuesday from the B.C.
playoffs and the Canadian
Olympic trials when they were
defeated 98-84 by Dietrich-Collins.
Almost 1400 fans, most of
them prO-UBC, watched an inspired D-C crew pile up a huge
lead in the third quarter and
hang on to win in the highest-
scoring game of the year.
In that disastrous third quarter, D-C's outscored the Birds
25-12. The Birds missed countless easy shots, and didn't hit
the scoreboard in the third quarter until almost seven minutes
had passed. At_ the start of the
fourth quarter, they were behind 74-56. The Birds twice cut
the margin to 12 points, but
were unable to get any closer.
Again, lanky Mfke Pbtkbnjak,
up from JV's, was the Birds
star. Mike canned 20 points and

UBC was eliminated from further playoffs earlier this week
when Dietrich-Collins defeated
them 98-84 in the third game of
their best of three semi-final.
Meanwhile the University of
Manitoba, a poor second in the
WCIAU regular schedule, will
meet the winner of the Winnipeg Senior A league for the
right to represent Manitoba in
further playoffs with Saskatchewan winners.
Contradictory to a CABA policy se tdown in print and distributed to universities throughout the country, UBC was recently refused its' right to challenge B.C. senior A champions
for the right to represent this
province in further Olympic
playoffs. .
AMS President Pete Meekison
told a Men's Athletic Association meeting Wednesday that
UBC should investigate possibilities of challenging winners
of the B.C.-Alberta basketball
series in its capacity as 1960
WCIAU champion, for the right
to represent western Canada in
