 Cornwall against motion
Student president. Alan Cornwall said Thursday
he is opposed to a student council decision to control
copy and placement of certain stories within the news
columns of The Ubyssey when the Graduate Student
Fee Reduction referendum is re-submitted to students.
Cornwall, following a council executive meeting
dealing with The Ubyssey-council dispute, said he
feels the motion gives council in effect, the power to
dictate the policy of the paper.
Council said hie expressed no opinion at Monday's
council meeting, when the motion was passed, and
said he has since determined his position.
The entire staff of The Ubyssey, and the editorial
board, said it would resign en masse if council does
not rescind the motion stating:
- "The second vice-president be directed to provide
for, and the Ubyssey to print, up to 50 inches of articles on the impending Graduate Class fee referendum,
in such editions as the  vice-president shall direct."
Ubyssey editor Roger McAfee described the motion
as an invasion of the autonomy of editorial policy the
paper has always enjoyed.
Cornwall Thursday said:
"In mv exDerience at UBC, there has been a tra
dition of editorial freedom in The Ubyssey and that
student council has not dictated editorial policy to
the paper, which in effect, is what is happening now
"I don't agree this should be the case.
"If we don't like the content, the obvious course
of action is to replace those responsible for the content, but not dictate what is to go in to the paper.
"In as much as the AMS, especially the student
council take pride in the degree of autonomy which
they enjoy, they should be willing to extend their
autonomy to their subsidiary bodies of which The
Ubyssey is one.
Second Vice-president Pat Glenn, agreed with
Cornwall. "I don't think council has sufficient justification in backing The Ubyssey up against the wall
and issuing them a specific directive, "he said, expressing hope that an "expression of guidance" would replace the present directive.
Cornwall said: "At the time of the meeting I
didn't have an opinion one way. or the other, and I
didn't argue one way or the other."
"Personally, I feel council should do what was
done last year* on three: occasions and recommend a
course of action to The Ubyssey.
"The Ubyssey editorial board should respect this
recommendation because they have been appointed
as responsible people, and should feel an obligation
to carry out an action which council feels is in the
best interests of the student body.
"If they do not, council should be prepared to seek
other people to fill their positions, and this is within
their powers."
Glenn said: "The entire set of circumstances arose ,
through   misunderstanding   of   where   responsibility
lay.
"I think the motion should be rescinded and replaced with a recommendation for The Ubyssey to provide sufficient coverage without infringements on
editorial policy.
"If they are not satisfied, it is council's job to fire
them. Fire them or let them go free."
The reasons Cornwall and Glenn gave for passing
of the motion by council were: to ensure adequate
coverage is given to the Grad Student Fee •Seduction referendum, and to act as a directive to the?
Ubyssey, But, they said they believe, Council did not
regard this as a precedent for directing Ubyssey
policy.

Student Councillor, Eric Ricker, charged Monday night at

presented for adequate evaluation of tihe budget in the areas
of Special Events, Conferences, Clubs, Publications and Public
Relations. , ™ '
Rub-a-dub
two 'kings'
and a tub
Less than twenty minutes after it came into being Thursday
the new Science Undergraduate
Society voted unanimously to
support The Ubyssey in having
a recent Student Council motion
rescinded.
President Bill Munro explained to the 75 SUS members
assembled what constituted The
Ubyssey - Student Council difficulties prior to the vote.
"I've been voting the way I
see fit," said Munro. "Now I
want to see how you feel about
it." Munro voted Monday night
for the motion which gives the
council control over placement
of certain copy in the paper.
He asked the science council:
"How many feel the motion as
it stands should be rescinded?"
Members voted affirmatively.
Education and Forestry presidents also said they are opposed
to the motion which gives the
council control, over placement
of stories in The Ubyssey's news
columns on re-submission of the
grad student fee reduction   referendum.
Education president Stan Yee
said:
"Under the circumstances of
the Canadian University Press
Charter (sic), I would say that
the Education Undergraduate
Society would stand behind The
Ubyssey."
Al Sawby, president of the
Forest Club, which comprises
most of the members of the
Forestry Undergraduate Society,
said his club had given him complete go ahead to support The
Ubyssey's stand.
/ Earlier the Engineering Undergraduate society executive
said it supported the paper's
stand.
Tuesday night at their general meeting, the Fort Camp
Students Association voted favoring The Ubyssey's stand on
the issue. In a letter sent by
Fort Camp council to the editor of The Ubyssey, the Residents   stated   that   "the   Fort
Camp     Students    Association
gives full support to the editorial board in their disagreement with student's council."
Munro, after learning the SUS
wanted   the   motion   rescinded,
asked the members if they were
in favor of tabling a  letter of
censureship to be sent to   The
Ubyssey regarding  the  lack of
publicity given the referendum
vote.
"I would like to suggest Student Council's public relations
officer never made a serious
enough attempt at having the
issue covered," said one member. "If he doesn't send the information in writing the pape.*
is bound to make some errors."
"This is advertising an event,"
said another, "I believe it is the
public relations officer's fault."
Other highlights of the meeting included:
• SUS will wear black sweaters with blue arm bands.
• Sonia Stairs is SUS Homecoming Queen candidate.
Treasurer Malcolm Scott presented the annual AMS budget
to Council for first reading. The
budget passed and will be presented for second reading next
week.
A motion proposed by Ricker,
requesting more adequate figures on the projected Special
Events, Conferences, Public Relations, and NFCUS Committee
budget was passed by Council.
The information will be presented by Scott at the next
meeting.
SOLE QUESTIONER
Ricker was the only student
councillor to voice substantial
criticism of the budget.
Law Undergraduate Society
president Chas. MacLean termed the budget "remarkable".
Discussing the club's allotment, Scott told Council that
UCC submitted nothing but a
request for six thousand dollars
to him. Club's were allotted
four thousand dollars in the
budget.
He said that Club's would
probably be "very unhappy"
about this figure, and added
"some of the larger dubs enjoy
a disproportionate amount of
the budget. In view of the present squeeze on the budget; we
cannot-give larger grants. Clubs
Will be forced to be self-supporting."
FINANCE SELVES
Ricker disagreed. "I think
Clubs are expected to finance
their own operation to too great
a degree. We are getting close
to the line of cutting them oil
completely. I don't think they
should have to 'sell, sell, sell,'
to be able to exist."
Scott   said   he   received    no,
breakdown of UCC's budget request and had to go on past ex-

Homer Tomlinson to be
crowned "King oi UBC
TORONTO  (CUP)—The "King of the World" found out
last week that all coronations  on the University  of Toronto
campus require special permits.
The King didn't have his, so
campus police asked him to
crown himself "King of The University of Toronto" elsewhere.
Undaunted, Homer A. Tomlinson, "King o'f Canada", "King
of The World", etc., etc., packed
up his portable throne and
moved on to Queen's Park,
where the ceremony was completed.
Tomlinson, who next Monday
plans to crown himself "King of
:Tbe  University  of   British  Co-
luratbia",   had   earlier    had    his
! loyai. claims   on   the   U  of   T
; throne contested  by  two  othei
i student'sponsored Kings.
:  .. Arriving..on  the   university's
campus,  King-elect Homer  was
met by  black-robed  University
College  men,   playing   timbrells
-and  haute-bubys,   and   carrying
their own King Peter on a gold

'college's King Tut, who prom-

lectures, -salvation from labs, salivation from salvation and, most
'important,  salvation   from   the
unrightful   usurper    King   Homer."
Before the Religious War could
be settled, campus police began
asking for coronation permits

"Any club which feels starved
for funds, has the jright to appeal to the finance committee,
and will receive every consideration," he said.
The   conference  budget   was
another area of conflict. It was
increased  from three to   four
thousand dollars.
MORE MONEY NEEDED
Ricker said it was designed
to look like an increase but
since many more conferences
were added to it, more money
would be needed.
Scott said there would be no
over-expenditure as far as he
was concerned. He said finance
committee would evaluate each
conference before approving the
expenditure.
Ricker said since the finance
committee was not familiar with

WORDS
By MIKE GRENBY
Ever read the classified ads
in the Ubyssey?
Ever notice the number of
"LOST'Litems?
Some of them are pretty
cleverly  worded,  I   think.
For example:
"Would the person who so
obligingly took my umbrella
for safekeeping . . . please
phone . . "
Or how about this one:
" 'Borrower'—Please return
my blue English cardigan . . .
phone ..."
Look like a couple of budding sarcastic satirists at work.
Or maybe they're just a
couple of annoyed people with
that sick, helpless feeling that
comes when one loses something, anything.
T V V
Out of curosity I checked
the classified ads over the last
couple of weeks.
I counted 78 ads.
I saw that 32 of the 78 were
"LOST" items.
And I'm sure there are
numerous other "misplaced"
books, raincoats, briefcases,
pens and umbrellas which
haven't been reported.
Look in this issue and you'll
find over half the classified section is for "lost" (we daren't
say "stolen") articles.
Look on today's editorial
page (Page 4) Miss Gordon is
one of the luckier ones. At
least she has an idea who took
her posessions.
Sf. ip «jl
Perhaps you think these
"lost" and "borrowed" items
are returned. Optimist.
I called up a dozen of the
people who had advertised lost
articles. Only two said they had
their belongings returned.
Good showing, eh what? Or
why not be straightforward and
say,  "Disgusting."
Damn disgusting.

You've got a mid-term on
Monday- You haven't studied
yet because you've planned to
cram for it this weekend.
You - leave your books and
notes in a corner while you go
to coffee, or to the library.
You come back a few minutes
later your books are gone.
And the notes for Monday's
exam are gone too.
It happens. Too often. I hope
it never happens to you.
if. ip if.
"Honesty is a virtue."
Seems to mean nothing to
quite a few people on campus.
I wonder how they feel.
Proud? Clever? Perhaps a little
guilty? I wonder.
What kind of people are
they?
Low, contemptible, and usually gutless.
They steal because they don't
want to buy.
They steal because they're
misfits, because stealing makes
them feel they've accomplished
something in their miserable
lives.
They steal because they get
a   perverted   pleasure   out   of
stealing.

INTERNATIONAL HOUSING is coming to International House. This is a model of a $1.5 million
student residence planned for the centre. The first unit, to be built in the .near future, will
house  100 grad students.
International House proposes
residences for grad students
By RICHARD SIMEON
A $ 1.5 million student residence complex is planned for
International House.
Director John Haar said Friday first part of the plan will
be a $450,000 residence for
100 male graduate students.
Date of completion has not
been set.
Haar said eventually there
will be accomodation for 300
single and married students in
three buildings.
It is the first such project
in Canada, and will be similar
in scope to other International
Houses all over the world,
Haar said.

We urge	
There are some members of student council
trying to interfere with your right to an autonomous
campus newspaper. They are trying to interfere
with our right to print one.
They are few, perhaps no more than one or
two. They are trying to cloud the issue with scares
ot inaccuracy and irresponsibility. One man has
gone so far as to solicit a new editor without either
the knowledge or approval of the full council.
If he succeeds the next editor might not be
chosen by. open application but rather by a method
known as midnight politics. The name speaks for
itself.
These,men are hoping for a rift in the present
staff. That would haye to occur in order for them
to get enough qualified persons to put out this
publication.
This rift will not occur. The staff of this paper
is solidly backing the stand of the editorial board.
The efforts of these few men will fail. The staff will
be neither intimidated nor divided!
These councillors perhaps feel they are acting
in the best interests of the student body by dictating to The Ubyssey. We maintain they are not.
We maintain a free Ubyssey is in the best interests of the student body. They apparently do not.

We urge councillors who feel their primary
responsibility lies in their service to the student

Letters to the Editor
Pay for destroying
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
After having read The Ubyssey containing the "Editor's
Balk Article," I was overcome
with the feeling that our so-
called democratic student government has suddenly become
dictatorial. It struck me that
I was paying, through AMS
fees, for the condemnation and
destruction of one of the freedoms of living which a few
fight for and all proclaim as
thee belief.
This democratic freedom being the freedom of the press.
If freedom is being suppressed by self-proclaimed demigods—to wit the students councilors in general and Mr. Scott
in particular—then we the students, who elected these supposed responsible people to definitely responsible posit ion,
must accept the balme for this
atrocity.
One more thought on the
matter. If council does not see
fit to rescind this motion and
the editorial staff does quit,
who then will accept the posi-
ions left open?
That is to say, who of ede-
quate  experience.
Perhaps Mr. Scott would like
to be the next editor-in-chief?
If, failing to rescind the
motion, perhaps student council will refund us the portion
of our AMS fee allocated to
Ubyssey publication.
Yours truly,
DON GORDON,
Ed. Ill,
UCC Public Relations,
Officer.
Editor's responsibility
Editor,
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
Three cheers for freedom of
the press! I am in complete
agreement with the policy of
the Ubyssey regarding its protest to Student Council domination.
I believe it is the responsibility of the editor and his staff
for the content and placement
of all articles in their paper.
Once the council begins its
domination,   the   whole  paper
may become a mere puppet
for the council. After the Ubyssey, where does the council
stop?
Being a frosh, the freedom
of the council and its operations are new to me. I heartily
support the freedom of the
council to act as it see fit.
But I humbly ask the question
if the council has fought, obtained and is proud of its freedom, why does it attempt to
squash an equally free organization, which is fighting and
has recently fought for its freedom?'
Yours very truly,
Barry Lockwood,

Gentle reminder
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Once again the Ubyssey has
been challenged. Following the
historical cyclical pattern, the
Editor has mounted his editorial podium emitting a cry of
"Freedom  of the Press!"
The Ubyssey is published by
the Alma Mater Society of the
university for the purpose of informing the student body of
pertinent   campus  matters.
Editorial freedom is a constitutional right of the Editor and
his staff.
The present case is obviously
not a question of dictation by
the AMS of Editorial opinion.
The motion is one of censure,
a gentle reminder to the Ubyssey of their responsibility to
inform the student body.
The staff was unable to provide the neccessary publicity
for the Grad. Finance Referendum when only a verbal direction was used. Now they
have it in writing, let's look for
improvement.

Freest campus?
Editor,
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
"FREEDOM OF THE PRESS"
As a new student of UBC, I
agree with your stand against
the pressure brought on by the
student government.
We, the students, must have
a "Ubyssey" that is free to ex
press   independent   ideas   and
facts.

Willing to go
The Edtior,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
This letter is a reply to a letter to the editor in Tuesday's
Ubyssey in which the Conservative Club challenged the Social Credit Club to a debate
concerning the B.C. Electric.
I have already informed
members of the Conservative
Club of our stand with regard
to this debate, but as they see
fit to continue their challenge
it becomes necessary for me,
on behalf of the Social Credit
Club to reply formally.
It is our feeling that as we
were not notified of this debate before it was publicly announced (I refer to an article
in the Vancouver Daily Province some weeks ago outlining the details of the debate)
we are, therefore, disinclined
to submit at this stage to any
such proposal.
If we had previously expressed a refusal to debate this
issue I could understand the
Conservative position in their
method of approach, but under
the circumstances I can see no
reason why we were not at
least approached about the debate and given a chance to accept before pressure was applied in the form of a public
announcement.
It could be argued that this
method of approach is the usual way of offering a challenge
of this kind, but in my opinion and in the opinion of those
I represent this was not the
honourable course to take, and,
as a result we feel obliged to
decline the offer in order that
a precedent will not be set for
such tactics.
We are willing to debate the
issue at any time, but we expect the courtesy of being informed of the challenge before
it   is  publicly   announced.
Yours truly,
Allen G. LaCroix,

THE       UBYSSfY
Guest editorial
Compelled to reply
Editor replys
Page  5
I feel compelled to reply to
a letter to the Ubyssey of Oct.
17 by Mr. Cairns, criticising
the recent Frosh elections. Certainly Mr. Cairns' criticism was
valid, but since the Ubyssey
has seen fit to publish his opinions as a guest editorial, and
to shift all responsibility for
the deficient factors in the election on to me, I feel that the
controversy behind the matter
should be brought to the students'  attention.
Mr. Cairns raised three specific criticisms of the election,
and. a number of others which
I propose to deal with, under
the general heading of "publicity."
First, Mr. Cairns understands
that, the AMS elections are
highlighted by classroom
speeches by the nominees.
This is correct, but this procedure is up to the discretion
of the candidate. The candidates for Frosh executive were
aware of this, and the fact that
the procedure was not carried
out indicates that they felt that
the time involved did not justify the possible benefit.
The invasion of the speeches
by the Engineers was most unfortunate, and, I feel, irresponsible. As far as stunts of this
nature are concerned, it was a
. good one, but their sense of
timing leaves much to be desired.
As to voting booths, Mr.
Cairns may have a very valid
point. To the best of my knowledge, however, voting booths
have never been supplied for
a campus election, and the lack
of them has never been criticised. If Mr. Cairns feels strongly on this point, he may bring
it, through his Frosh executive,
to Student's Council.
But Mr. Cairns' chief criticism, and one which is certainly justified, is the lack of "publicity" given to the elections.
Since this last criticism is similar to the one which has been
levied, with such flamboyant
results, during the course of
this week, Mr. Cairns may be
a little startled to find his letter an integral part of such a
tasteless controversy.
It should be obvious by now
that the matter of "publicity"
for the Frosh elections is similar, if not parallel, to the matter of the recent referendum.
Since I am replying to Mr.
Cairns' letter, I shall confine
my remarks to the elections,
but a similar thesis could be
arrived at for the referendum
and the Blood Drive.
It is my opinion, Mr. Cairns,
that an event of the nature of
the Frosh elections, concerning as it does almost a quarter
of the students on campus, justifies a certain amount of news
space in a campus "newsr
paper." The fact that there is
such an election., that certain
individuals are running, and
that campaigning, campaign
speeches and voting are taking
place at a specific time and
place, are, to me part of the
news value of such an event.
If a newspaper is aware of
a newsworthy item, it is part
of the function of such a newspaper to obtain the facts concerning the eyent, to arrange
these facts in the form of a
story and to print such a story.
It is not, I believe, the duty
of those involved in such an
event to seek out the newspaper staff, see to it that they
get the facts or to be responsible for the accuracy of the
story when it is published.
Specifically, Mr.- Cairns, it
was not my duty, as AMS returning officer, to provide a
written press release on the
elections, or to go down to the
Ubyssey office, as 1 eventually
did, to ensure that they printed
a news story on the election.
Nor is it my duty to provide
someone to carry' out these
tasks.
Unfortunately for the Frosh
elections and the referendum,
Mr. Cairns, it is the publicly-
stated opinion of the editor of
this publication that these were
not newsworthy events, and
that it was not the function of
his staff to do anything other
than wait in the Ubyssey office
for someone to come down to
them, seek out "anyone in
authority", and to ensure that
the story was written and the
published facts were accurate.
The editor also stated, in
public, that the pre-election
day coverage given by the
Ubyssey justified the news
value of the event and consequently absolved his staff of
any further responsibility in
the matter. That coverage, Mr.
Cairns, consisted of 2.5 column
inches in two issues of the
week preceding the election.
I ask you, Mr. Cairns,
whether this indicates responsibility on the part of a campus
"newspaper".
A few facts for your consideration. Tne Ubyssey is in a
monopolistic position. Further,
the Ubyssey is subsidized by
the students—subsidized to the
tune of $13,572 in the present
year.
In light of recent events, Mr.
Cairns, I suggest you ask yourself whether the student body
exists to serve the Ubyssey, or
whether the Ubyssey exists to
serve the needs of the student
body. And I would ask which
relationship appears to apply
to the Ubyssey's coverage of
the Frosh elections.
Signed—Bob   McConnell
I would like to thank Mr. Mo-
Connell ior taking the timeJo write,
at some length, his views on a
campus newspaper. There are however, a few inaccuracies we feel
compelled to correct.
The editor of The Ubyssey at no
time said the Frosh Elections or the
Referendum were not newsworthy
events. The editor said after their
initial coverage, which came immediately after their first public announcement, they became primarily
matters of publicity. Even so they
are important, and we fully acknowledge our part in the inefficient publicity program of both the
elections and the referendum.
Mr. McConnell mentions the
blood drive. If success is an indication of the adequacy of the publicity, we would like to remind him
that the drive substantially topped
its quota set by the Red Cross,
We would also like to point out
that the drive co-chairmen were in
constant contact with our office giving updated facts and figures.
Mr. McConnell's last questions
might well be re-phrased "Do student officials exist to serve The
Ubyssey or does The Ubyssey
exist to serve student officials?"
We feel we exist to serve the
students. To do this we sometimes
need the help of student officials.

Boylan sane?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Mr. Boylan's letter of Friday
last would cause a dispassionate observer to doubt the Communist Club president's morality or sanity, for such a statement as "the Communist
Party of Canada firmly believes in the traditions of democracy" can be questioned on
both a moral ana pyschological
level.
Every movement in the world
today that calls itself communist is dedicated to the disruption and eventual overthrow
of the democratic system.
Never have the communists
come to power in a nation
through parliamentary means.
They do, however, find the
democratic system iemporarilv
helpful.
Mr. Boylan goes on to plead
for all the courtesy and freedom that his movement is resolved to stamp out. I contend
that it can be seriously debated
whether a society which gives
freedom to an organization dedicated to its extinction is more
of an anarchy than a democracy.
The Canadian government,
however, has taken the practical , and justifiable, view that
it is better to allow the Communist movement to exist in the
open, thus helping the authorities to keep close tabs on it,
and lessening its attraction to
the lunatic fringe. But I fail to
see why it deserves courtesy
and respect.

IT'S   COMPARATIVELY' EASY  FOR
a Vancouverite to ignore, his persecution
by the Church. And there is therefore
small rancor in the heart of your atheist-
in-the-street when the Church does incommode him. Uo one suggests, for instance, because he can't get a drink or
go to a movie on Sunday, that church-going should be similarly forbidden. He accepts the inequity of our laws, slanted as
they are in favour of the Christian, because they are not slanted further.
CHURCH'S STRENGTH
SELDOM  NAKED
THE CHURCH'S STRENGTH IS SEL-
dom naked is this community; it is clothed
in the smug knowledge of advantages already possessed. We are only aware of its
massive power when the ORGANIZA-
ION is stung into action by a bee nuisance
like The Ubyssey Goon edition of Easter
1959, or when to be topical, some tropical
novel offends. And this atmosphere of
easy truce makes it hard for us to appreciate fully a play like Sean O'Casey's COCKADOODLE DANDY, playing this week
at the Freddy Wood Theatre. For the setting of COCKADOODLE DANDY is a
much smaller community than ours, one
where the social screws can be turned
far tighter;, and the atmosphere is not of
truce, but open war, for the community
is in Ireland, where the Church's hold
remains total, dictatorial, ana only to be
shaken by the most ferocious opposition.
VANCOUVER/HOWEVER. WILL SEE
some significance in this play for, as I've
pointed out, even in comparatively free
B.C. more freedom is still to be won; if
- Voltaire and Joyce are permitted us, Miller is not; and sermbns as fiery, entertaining, ana emotionally convincing as
O'Casey's can only further the cause of
the 'full-lifers against the pinched, the
perverted, and the patriarchal. O'Casey's
comic-fantasy is not only an anti-clerical
sermon. O'Casey shoves his mystic hero,
the Cock, bang into the middle of every
capitalistic, authoritarian vice, and waits
ior the explosion. COCKADOODLE DANDY is a Dionysian chant to banish the
forces of joylessness back to their arid
sties:

MYSTERY  PLAY
AS BEFITS A MYSTERY PLAY. THE
figures are more personifications than
persons. We might prefer a Chehovian
complexity of character development, but
it has no place here. Domineer, as his
name suggests, stands for all the bullying
that an omnipotent organisation can practice; Marthraun and Sailor Mahan are
miserly, mean, and gullible; most of the
villagers are merely mean and gullible,
with no means to be miserly about; Sha-
naar is all that is silly and dangerous in
the aged to whom supernatural wisdom
is ascribed. Nor is there any relief from
the harsh delineation in O'Casey's good
guys.
The card-stacking continues into the
plot. The Cock works all kinds of miracles, while the Church can't work even
lone.. Julia, Marthraun's ailing sister-in-
law, goes on pilgrimage to Lourdes (which
place O'Casey elsewhere calls the Coney
Island of misery, agony, and woe), but
returns, unhealed, to die in Nyadnanave.
BUT  O'CASEY  CAN  BE SUBTLE
enough in the observation of human behaviour. 'Paint the devil on the wall often
enough, and he'll appear to you', runs an
old proverb, and when the women sprout
horns during their dance, it is only because the men expert to see them sprout
horns. Marthraun, One-Eyed Larry, the
Sergeant, and the Bellman, are caught in
a gale which none but them can feel.
Michael cries that the wind will carry
them to hell. Robin Adair tells him there's
nothing but a brisk breeze blowing, one
that carries the smell of pinewoods and
apples. Evil is in the mind of the beholder.
HARRY BAILLY, WHO PLAYS
Sailor Mahan in the Freddy Wood production, delivery this and other speeches with
almost the amount of naturalness needed
for maximum effect. He is hindered by
that old bugbear, the Irish brogue. Not
that Mr Bailly can't get the brogue; but
that, with so much concentration on its
preservation, he has too little left over
to deal with the meaning of the speech.
Ted Green^algh, on the other hand, although not quite at ease in his accent, has
less trouble than Mr. Bailly in concentrating on meaning, and, in fact, loses
some impact by an over-concentration on
the lines. He is too often caught enjoying
their humour, which is to say, he poaches
on  the  preserves of   the   playgoer,    and
cinema 16 - U.B.C.
Presents
'Classics of the English and American Cinema'
a joy!
leaves less for the latter to laugh at. Mr.
Greenhalgh's characterization is otherwise fine, and his playing of the final
scene is most moving.
HARRY BAILLY'S CHARACTERIZA-
tion is also generally excellent, except—
is the character he plays Sailor Mahan?
In an endeavour to bring variety to the
long scenes between these two, O'Casey
has written some sympathetic traits into
Mahan. In a sense, Mahan is out of character in the parable, for he is too complex. But he is surely still an unpleasant
character—whose defiance of the priest
is only motivated by avarice, — and,
whether the fault be O'Casey's, Mrb Bail-
ly's, or director Dorothy Somerset's, I
found Mahan folksy where he should be
foxy.
NUANCES OF CHARACTER ARE
seldom called for here, but personifications are no actor's picnic: they require
a belief in the unbelievable. Des Smiley's
Father Domineer is a perfect example of
how this is done. He is one of Vancouver's best underemployed actors. Cecil
Glass's Shanaar is also a good example.
Chris Harker wears the exact cynical
smile the Cock calls for, and captures at
times the barnyard movement, but lapses
on occasion into a human walk.
CHAPPELL HAS RARE
TALENT
JOHN CHAPPELL HAS THAT RARE
talent in an actor—he's a good listener.
When he can deliver lines with the same
conviction, he'll be an even greater asset.
His balladiering  is  happily professional.
There are some real Irishmen in the
cast, but, while their accents are genuine,
their projection is faulty—from which
charge I exempt Brian Harrison and Tom
Byrne. The latter, as the Sergeant, shows
a fine flair for broad comedy.
MARGARET MALOUGH'S LORE-
leen could use some of the vitality of
Yvonne Wightman's delightful Marion.
Miss Maiough is usually right, but lacks
energy; she should be more Ballyboghil
and less Belgravia. Lorna, Michael's wife,
isn't the bright and graceful girl of O'Casey's script in Pam Glass's interpretation, but Miss Glass has a nice comic gift

The Roberto Iglfsias Ballet
Espanol was an exciting evening. The entire company is

Roberto Iglesias and his company seemed to be telling the
audience that the Spanish dancer is made of rhythm, right

SUNDAY'S VANCOUVER
SYMPHONY CONCERT at the
Queen Elizabeth Theatre featured the commendable idea of
presenting three of the orchestra's first chair men as soloists: Ken Helm, Flute; Robert
Creech, French Horn; and Ernest Friedlander, Cello.
Mr. Helm's performance was
stylistically accurate, steady in
intonation, and marred only by
a couple of false starts. The
orchestra, however, possessed a
leaden quality. Although Bach
used his orchestral instruments
more for their fullness of sound
than for their individual colors,
there was all too much fullness
on this occasion since too many
strings were used. This resulted
in an overly thick orchestral
fabric w h \ c h impaired the
gracefulness of some movements and made the harpsichord scarcely audible.
Mozart wrote in his Horn
Concerto No. 2 in E flat a buoyant, melodic work of three
movements. An andante of
smoothly flowing melody and a
rondo finale in six-eight time
test both the soloist's evenness
of tone and his technical ability.
Mr. Creech replied with a
thoroughly competent reading.
While no Brain or Stagliano,
lie nonetheless possesses admirable control over his difficult
instrument. Unfortunately this
control was stressed at the expense of a lively tempo, thus
although the soloist's "legato
phrasing in the second movement and clearly produced tone'
throughout the concerto were
notable, the opening allegro
and the iiunting-song-like finale
lacked vitality — a fault in
which the orchestra must share
blame.
Interest on Sunday centered
around the World Premiere of
the Second Cello Concerto of
Ernest Friedlander, the last
first chair man presented on...
this occasion. The work itself
is written in free sonata form
with its two movements united
by a motiv. Although Mr.
Friendlander seems to have devoted more 'of his attention to
the cello solo, leaving an accompaniment which is rather,
thin at times, his use of wood- S.S E Y

CIRCUMLOCUTION HAS

in discussing last weekend's

THE MOUNTIES —("we always get ou; book' ) are not

in the U. S. not enough years
ago, the King James Edition
wasi't safe. I was in Victoria
College in 1953 when the
mayor fired the librarian for

WHAT MAKES THE SEIZING   of  the   books   even
- X97l£0 -
By PETER MORRIS
"SUBTITLES MUST GO! Let's have dubbed English dialogue
in Foreign Films," shrieked a headline in the New York Times.
The article, by Bosley Crowther,~said in part: "The mere suggestion is going to cause a lot of people to scream and blast this former
purist (sic!) . . . But the more we think about it, the more we
realise that every aspect of the present method of the superimposed subtitle is wrong, and that artistry, commerce and the public's
eyesight will best 'oe served by having general recourse to the
dubbing device."
"TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE
Mr. Crowther bases His arguments on the fact that technical
advances have now made lip synchronisation of dubbed English
so close that it is difficult for the untutored eye to spot. It is for
precisely the "technical excellence" of dubbing that I find it
aesthetically unsatisfying. A good translation is never a word-for-
word affair, or even a phrase-for-phrase affair, but the technical
necessities of dubbing English words to a foreign sound track
means substituting syllable for syllable in the English equivalent.
This at best, even allowing for coincidences, can only give
an approximation to the purport of the original foreign word. It
generally follows that the more skilful the dubbers are about
matching lip movements the farther they must be forced from the
original meaning. Everybody has come across such gems as the
phrase "I love you" being answered with "You swear it?" Nobody
ever talked like that.
DUBBING AND CULTURE
Dubbing is also unsatisfactory from a language and national
culture standpoint. How incongruous it is to hear an Indian in
traditional dress talking in the best Bronx, or. a Parisian crook
mouthing his threats with a Cockney accent.
A dubbing "actor" can never hope co achieve the emotional
depth of the original actor nor express himself with the same
forcefulness. After all, he is carrying the emotions at second hand.
Those who saw both the sub-titled and dubbed versions of WILD
STRAWBERRIES and compared the flat dubbed voice of the doctor
with the rich quality and overtones of Victor Sjostrom's own voice
in the sub-titled versions will be aware of the truth of this.
There is a further opportunity to compare sub-titling and dubbing at the Studio this week. The dubbed version of THE VIRGIN
SPRING was shown some months ago; now the sub-titled version
is being presented. Again, the distant unemotional voices in the
dubbed version compare most unfavourably with the tones and
rhythms of the original Swedish voices.

"GOODBYE AGAIN" AT VOGUE
GOODBYE AGAIN (directed by Anatole Litvak out of Francois Sagan) is at the Vogue this week. Francois Sagan's novel
"Aimez Vous Brahms," although no masterpiece, deserved better
treatment than the film Litvak has made of it. The swirling senselessness of the new brand-name given to the story indicates Lit-
vak's approach. The theme as filmed is good-old-love-triangular
meanderings, following to the letter the precepts of women's magazine serials and full of ersatz melancholy contrived to give women
a pleasing, pang. Structurally the film lacks form and Litvak's
command of the regretful romantic mood he tries to inspire is
non-existent.
Yves Montand (w:iom I find anything but irresistible) contributes nothing more than a few shrugs and a stare of bored triumph. Ingrid Bergman's usual radiance is dimmed beneath sickly
sentiment even she cannot override. Anthony Perkin's talents are
largely hidden and his exceptional gifts for comedv misused. In
one scene he goes into a flash of mime in front of Bergman tnat
hints at his gifts. In the hands of a Francois Truffaur or a Jean
Luc Godard the scene could have teen immensely engaging. But
the actual photography is flat and Litvak so insistent on his cliched
approach that he cuts in a shot of Bergman looking charmed and
another of a small dog looking startled and another of a waiter
looking priggish. The underlining in a Victorian's letters could
go no farther.

not new to pub
Student council members and the Ubyssey's editorial staff
lave found themselves in opposite comers on matters of prin-
:iple before.
The first and most flamboyant
example was in December, 1951.
The council, on one hand commending the staff for a newspaper standard "technically superior to any produced in recent
years" and on the other condemning the editor's work and
attitudes as not in keeping with
student interest, asked for editor Les Armour's resignation.
The council was bitterly divided on this question—the president, vice-president, treasurer
and another councillor took
space in the Dec. 4 issue to state
their "disassociation with the
action taken by Students' Council". The same edition carried
the Ubyssey staff's intention to
resign en masse if Armour was
fired.
MEETING CALLED
A General meeting of the student body was called two days
later in the armory, where
members of the student council
and Armour spoke on the issue
of his dismissal.
The student council's stand
was: "that an editor ought to
present to the student body
opinions which that body- already holds". *   '   «
Aranour stated that should this
principle be allowed to stand,
"The Ubyssey will cease to exist
as the students' only safeguard
against their government."
At the end of two hours' argument the student body voted
overwhelmingly to reinstate editor Armour.
RESIGNATIONS ASKED
A week previous to council's
decision to fire Armour, student
president Vaughn Lyon had told
four council members he was
prepared to accept their resignation because of their general deportment as councillors. In four
months the clique in council
had:

club group complained to council that The Ubyssey was not
giving them adequate coverage
The council was divided on
the 'matter, student opinion was
that there was entirely enough
campus news as it was, and faculty members felt that the paper — should it continue to
soft-pedal clubs — looked like
a miniature newspaper, "not
like a high school rag or a product of a State College."
The clubs struck a bargain,
privately, with The Ubyssey on

UBC  TCiunderbirds  continue to  lead an  underdog's life
this weekend.
Thunderbirds meet undefeated 'Lomas Saturday in first
division rugby action, but they
are definite underdogs.
Birds are still out of condition and plagued with injuries.
Most of their backfield is inexperienced and Neal Henderson, their veteran fullback, is
out with ah injury.
Head coach Dr. Albert Laithwaite said Thunderbirds will
play an open game rather than
a defensive game.
Game time is 2:30 at Connaught Park.
The five other rugby teams
will also be playing Saturday.
Braves meet Rowing Club at
Balaclava Park; Tomahawks
meet Ex-Britannia II at Clinton Park. Frosh I and Frosh II
meet Hornets at Winona and the
Barbarians II at Pauline Johnson School, respectively.
The only home game will he
at 1:30 on the Gym field. Physical Eds look for their third win
this year against Richmond II.
Only men who are rated league all-star calibre by thei

20 players Jor the three university teams and another 25 will
be chosen at the beginning of
next week to round out the
teams' rosters.
The players were selected
from the more than 90 who
showed up for tryout practices
last week.
The 20 include three returnees
froim, last year's Thunderbirds,1
Dave Way, Dune McCaUum, and
Jack Lusk.
Several players from last
year's Jayvees also have made
the list. They are Dave Nelson,
Courtney Brousson, Dave [Black,
Ed Terris, and Norm Vic&ery.
The 1960-61 Braves have
placed several players on the
list. They are Don Brooks, Doug
Latta, John Cook, and Brian
Adams.
Newcomers Wayne King, Laurie Predinchuk, Neil Dorey, Ken
McDonald, Gord McKay, Rory
Weliings, Bill Atkinson, and
Steve Spencer have also made
the cutoff.
Notable by their absence are
Mike Potkonjak, Keith Hartley,
and Wayne Osborne, all with
last year's Birds. Osborne will
be out with the team as soon as
the football season is over.
Hartley will be playing for Ken
Winslade's new team in the Senior A Men's League.
Potkonjak has said he will
also join Winslade's team. Pomfret, however, said he thought
Potkonjak's. old knee injury
may keep him out of basketball
completely this year.
He said Potkonjak had told
him he had not made up ins
mind yet about playing for Winslade.
The healthy crop of hopefuls
is being looked over by Pomfret and his two new assistants,
Alan Yarr and Graeme McKay.
The amendment is aimed at
reducing the number of big
blocks awarded.
"We want to raise the prestige of the big block," said club
president Gordon Olafson.
The amendment reads:
"The player must be, in the
opinion of tbe coach, of a quality worthy of consideration for
the Association on league's representative team."
It will become effective this
year, but is still subject to the
approval of the Men's Athletic
Committee, Olafson said.
He said present plans include
the awarding of a pin to every
member of a varsity team, and
that only athletes of all-star
Calibre will receive big blocks.
Small blocks; vvould probably
still be awarded, he said.
The old clause stipulated only
that "the athlete must be an
outstanding member of the
Thunderbird team — first team
of any sport."
He also  must meet a list of
minimum requirements, main!
involving a percentage of game
played.
Basketball players must hav
played 25, percent of thei
team's games to qualify. Soccei
rugby, and • several other sport
require 75 percent playing tim<s
Others merely have minimur
time or distance requirement:
Some are already on an all-sta
basis.
"We'd like to limit the nun
ber of big blocks given out cor
siderably," said Olafson. "Bi
there's a bit of indecisio
among the MAC as to the nei
system." c
He said he couldn't estimat
how much the new clause woul
restrict the number of aware
made.'
"There's still an awful lot c
leeway in the wording," he sait
"If the football team wo
their league and went into"*th
Canadian final, they might ha\
as .many as 15. qualifiers for bi
blocks," he said.
Last year, 20 football playei
received big blocks. Another 3
received small blocks.
A challenge
In accordance with the dictates of science, that to be
found true, an hypothesis
must be proven by experiment, we, the S.P.E.A.W. (Society for Proving that Engineers Are weakings) propose
the following test:
We challenge the weak,
bloated engineers to a rope-
climbing contest, in Memorial
Gym.
To prove we are serious
about our strength, we offer
a prize to the engineers if
they can beat us.
The time of the contest (if
any Engineers, or anyone else
for that matter, have the
nerve to challenge us) will be
at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26.
In all modesty,

Chiefs greet Vikings

... THAT ENDS WELL
THE LIVING ENDS of the UBC Chiefs were displayed Thursday
during game with Western Washington at UBC Stadium.
Washington won game 18-7.
Vikings took command of the
game from the opening whistle
and only relinquished the lead
once.
They scored their first touch-
I down in the first quarter after
a sustained drive.
Chiefs then took over and
looked like they could control
the play. They marched to the
Viking ten yard, line when the
horn sounded to end the first
quarter.
On the first play of the second quarterback Lloyd Davis
handed the ball to halfback Jirn
Stevens, who rambled into the
end zone.
Gordie Nishi converted to give
chiefs a 7-6 lead. - "
The score remained unchanged
until the fourth quarter when
Vikings again bulled their way
to another T.D. They again missed the convert, but led 12-7.
Vikings  scored   their  third
touchdown in the final quarter,
taking advantage of several
Chief penalties to march down
the field. Final score:  18-7.
Stan Knight, who will be travelling with the Birds to Seattle this weekend, quarterbacked
the Chiefs in the last quarter and
moved the team well using a
good assortment of plays to keep
the Viking defense on its heels.
But it was to no avail. The
loss was Chief's seventh straight.

NEW AFTER 25 YEARS!
The Canadian, the C.P.R.'s nickel
stainless steel streamliner, has been
flashing across Canada on a daily
schedule for more than seven years,
still as gleaming bright as the day it
went into service. The world's first

run from Denver to Chicago over
twenty-five years agp. And it's still
going strong after logging more than
3,000,000 miles.

Modern transportatfon 'builds
world markets for nickel
Nickel stainless Steer is used widely throughout the world in
the construction of modern streamlined trains, planes, ocean liners
and automobiles—because of its bright beauty and ability to withstand corrosion ahd high temperatures.
Nickel alloy steels are the strong, tough, durable materials that
carry the load in modern transportation. They're used for automotive transmissions and engine parts, for the heavy duty machinery
and structural parts of ocean-going ships and' lake freighters, for
planes, trains, trucks and buses.
Canada is the world's largest producer of nickel. And Inco,
through sales, research and market development operations, maintains a continuing program for the expansion of international
markets for Inco nickel.
More Inco aickel than ever before will be exported to Inco's
