Monks met in the Moulin Rouge at Friday's Mardi Gras
Pep Meet.
The monks were Kappa Sig
ma fraternity members in a
skit on the new life the fraternity is leading.
(A member of the fraternity
was convicted recently on a
charge of being a minor in
possession of liquor apparently
obtained at his fraternity.)
Dancers from the Alpha Phi
sorority did a Moulin Rouge
can-can routine.
B.C. Lions Quarterback Joe
Kapp hosted the rally which
also featured a satire on the
James Bond Goldfinger movie,
topless bathing suits (on men),
and Hawaiian dancers (male).

"There are enough students
seeking work," Miss Blair said.
"If one student isn't happy,
there are always others to take
his place."
She was commenting on a
letter to the editor in Thursday's Ubyssey from a student
using the pseudonym "Tuum
Est". In the letter a student
charged student employees
don't get fair treatment under
the minimum wage law. He
'also claimed students get no
warning of lay-offs.
"If there isn't enough work,
the student is the first person to be laid off, as the permanent staff is there for the
purpose of being permanent,"
Miss Blair said.
Student employment officer
Miles Hacking, said the hiring
of students is a completely cooperative arrangement between the departments on campus  and the personnel office.
"The departments are not
obligated to hire students," he
Hacking said the question
of students' rights under the
Department of Labor Laws has
never been examined because
of the merit of co-operation.
"There are roughly 300 stu-
dents involved in part-time
work on campus. As the university grows, I foresee an expansion of this type of employment," he said.
"A letter such as this could
be misconstrued by the departments that hire students,
and they might hestitate in the
future to-consider students for
campus jobs. As long as students are working, the Person-

Lower-than-expected enrolment is threatening the remaining half of the $20,000
AMS operating budget margin.
Figures compiled by UBC's
accounting office revealed
Thursday student fee revenue
will fall at least $5,500 short
of the estimated $435,000.
AMS treasurer Kyle Mitchell said the difference could
amount to $10,000, in which
case the remaining budget
margin would be wiped out.
He said half the margin has
already been spent in supplementary grants, sending rowers to the Tokyo Olympics, and
increased Canadian Union of
Student fees.
Revenue depends on how
many students pay the full $29
AMS fee, Mitchell said.
He said the AMS is awaiting
the accounting office breakdown on student fees.
"I can't understand the delay on these figures," Mitchell
said, "but we hope to have
them by next week."
He said he'll have to cut corners on the budget if decreased fee revenue takes more
than the remaining $10,000
The AMS lost $21,000 last
year, leaving a current surplus
of $28,000.
Belfont protests
'Never saw sessions
Freezing hot letter really cool
The red-hot letter that froze
Academic Activities Committee funds was written by a
man who wasn't even luke-,
warm, UBC Cuban Committee chairman Bryan, -Belfont
charged Thursday.
A letter Monday from Victoria College AMS vice-president Rolli Cacchioni slammed
treatment of Victoria's delegates to last weekend's joint
UBC-College symposium.
It led to a decision in Council Monday night to freeze
AAC funds until the matter
was investigated.
"This Cacchioni never even
. . . burned up
attended   the   sessions,"   Belfont said.
Belfont spoke at the Saturday night debate on student government bureaucracy
which ended in a shouting
match between him and AMS
President Roger McAfee.
"Cacchioni came over Friday night with the rest of the
Victoria delegation, stayed in
Vancouver and went back
with the delegation Sunday
night," Belfont said.
"But he didn't attend any
Belfont also slammed AAC
chairman Mike Coleman for
his   statements   that   politics
had no place in the joint symposium.
"AMS bureaucracy here is
the only student government

Coleman as an example of a

Winds catch WUS
in an ill middle
World University Service is caught between two cross-
winds in attempting to define a working philosophy for the
One wind prevails from
above in the WUS hierarchy,
bearing the philosophy of Douglas Mayer, national general
secretary, and further up the
scale, of the international WUS
headquarters in Geneva.
According to them, the primary obligation and concern of
WUS is to support its own
International Program of Action (IPA).
At the same time, the UBC
committee is trying to interpret its commitments and obligations to the AMS.
WUS at UBC is generally
pictured in the minds of students as an exchange scholarship committee.
This scholarship program is
definitely admirable in itself
but is only distantly related
with WUS and I PA, on whose
budget it is encroaching.
The UBC WUS committee
this year awakened to this
fact, and is now analyzing itself in an attempt to regain its
original international character,
now primarily associated with
The job is more difficult than
it seems.
Describing IPA as a program
of material aid to universities
in developing countries in Asia,
Africa and South America will
arouse little sympathy in the
average university student who
is immune to humanitarian appeals.
Running book drives is a
way of advertising, because it
gives students a feeling of participation in IPA.
None of these aspects of selling IPA, however, can compare
with the simple personal appeal
of a foreign exchange scholarship program.
Quite simply, the concept of
AMS ready, able

The joint Inter-Residence Council-AMS means survey is
a prime example of how the AMS can aid residence student
governments, AMS co-ordinator Graeme Vance said Thursday.
Vance was explaining comments he made on the means
survey yesterday when he
said in the past relations between IRC and AMS have been
damaged by "sheer ignorance"
on both sides.
"One of the purposes of the
survey," said Vance, is to
show residence people can
benefit greatly by using the
facilities of the AMS available
to them.
"We provided technical assistance and some financial
help, IRC did a commendable
job in organizing, assembling,
and distributing and collecting the surveys.
"The resources and services
of the AMS, including the best
accounting and banking service possible," Vance said, "are
available free to IRC or to any
of   the   individual   residence
groups who wish to avail
themselves of it in any way.
"The AMS has no wish to
interfere or control the internal operation of the residences,"
he said.
"We do believe the residences can contribute much
more to the campus, and we
will do all we can to assist
them, in this."
a student exchange is more immediate than that of sending
aid to Basutoland or Sierre
According to the directives of
the WUSC National Office in
Toronto, WUS at UBC cannot
freely choose between IPA and
the scholarship program as its
primary raison d'etre.
On the other hand, many
interested students at UBC and
particularly some student council members feel that the local
committee is obligated as a subsidiary to the AMS to give
primary support to the student-
paid exchange program.
Is the local committee obligated first to the AMS or to
national and international
It is this question with which
the local committee is concerned.
WUSC National General Secretary Douglas Mayer will visit
UBC in the middle of February
and will doubtless press for a
more radical change in WUSC
character at UBC.
At the same time, World University Service may well be
the object of a number of questions at the AMS general meeting.

nel   office   hasn't   questioned

"This is a program that has
been in existence for about 15
years, and while we have had
students unable to continue in
their part-time work, this is
one of the few times a question such as this has been
raised," Hacking said.

AMS president Roger McAfee said construction on the
new Student Union Building
will start by December  1965.

McAfee also said tenders
must be called at only the most
favorable times depending on
current market conditions so
the best bid will be obtained.
McAfee also justified the
seven-year gap between the
inception of the SUB in 1960
and its expected completion
date in 1967.
"We are not going to destroy
this project by rushing," McAfee said.
McAfee emphasized appendages like Brock Extension
will be unnecessary in the
"We hope to build a complete student complex," he
The complex is to include
the SUB building, a theatre
and possibly a chapel. McAfee
said the chapel may be replaced by a conference centre.
Present plans are to build
only the SUB.
Since 1929, students have
contributed over $1.5 million
for campus facilities. These
facilities include playing fields,
the Women's Gymnasium, the
Stadium, Brock Hall, the Armory, the War Memorial Gymnasium and Sherwood Lett
House, a residence block.
The new SUB will be the
largest undertaking to date.
"It is the largest building to
ever be built on campus at one
go," McAfee said.
The complex will extend
north from behind the Empire
Pool bleachers to the south end
of the Field House. The west
side will be bounded by East
Mall. Thunderbird Stadium will
be torn down.
The SUB will be about two
and a half times as large as the
Memorial Gym.
SUB architectural advisor
Warnett Kennedy said the floor
space of the new building will
be' slightly less than that of
the B.C. Hydro building.
Kennedy said the building
will be the first of its kind in
Canada. "It will be a pace setter as far as student union
buildings go," he said.
Cost for the SUB complex
will be in excess of $6 million.
The theatre will cost about $1.5
million, the proposed chapel
$.5 million of that.
Except  for  eating  facilities,
the building is financed by the
$15 out of the $29 AMS fees.
The food services will be operated by the administration,
which will also install them at
a cost of $.8 million.
Architect Kenneth Snider
will receive 7 per cent of the
cost for his fee, out of which
he will pay his consultants.
Director of UBC's School of
Architecture, Professor Henry
Elder, said the decision of the
SUB competition Board of Assessors was (unanimous. "In
the opinion of the jury it is
the only solution that meets
student requirements," he added.
Prayer Week to wind up
with PNE public service
A public worship service at the PNE Agrodome Sunday
will mark the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian
The principal speakers at the service will be Rev. W.
Stuart McLeod of Canadian Memorial United Church and
Father Patrick O'Sullivan of St. Mary's Catholic Church.
Final campus event will be an address by Father Edward Bader, an interviewer and reporter at the Vatican
Council, who will speak at noon Friday in Bu. 102.
Soppy field sends
across line
The UBC Thunderbirds, maintaining a rigorous training
schedule, will see more rugby action Saturday when they
meet the University of Washington team.
The game had to be rescheduled because of adverse
field conditions at Varsity Stadium, and will be played on
University of Washington campus instead. The Braves travel
with the 'Birds to Seattle to
play U of W seconds.
The rugby boys are so enthusiastic about playing they
are meeting expenses out of
their own pockets. Rescheduling of recent home games sent
expenses over the budget.

Charges teacher
Sacking freedom blow'
An Alberta schoolteacher
who lost his job for telling a
joke about contraceptives, says
his dismissal was a blow for
freedom of speech in the classroom.
"I wanted to win this decision for the benefit of all
teachers, and if I had won it
would have been a great step
forward for the freedom of
speech in class-rooms," said
Raymond Hertzog, of Edmonton.
Hertzog, who received his
BA and MA from UBC is at
UBC doing research for a doctoral thesis in psychology.
The joke he told, taken from
a satirical magazine published
in Edmonton, showed a woman
in a dilapidated shack filled
with children.
A   quote   from   the   Alberta
! act against the use of contra-
. ceptives appeared as the head-
i ing with a footnote:  "Here is
I a law abiding citizen".
"A female member from my
class retold this joke to her
parents who were friends of
the mayor. About a week later
I was suspended," Hertzog
"I had a ruling in my favor
from the minister of education
in Alberta, Anders Aalborg.
but this did not bind the school

The Red Tide
No, the right-wingers aren't really coming out of the
woodwork at UBC—it just seems that way.
Rockwell's retreat was the December feature on
the anti-Communist scene, but January is shaping up
as extremely bad news for the subversives.
Already in one week we've had Aussie anti-Commie
crusader Fred Schwarz, Herb ("I Was a Communist
for the FBI") Philbrick and Calvin ("I Am a Disowned
Communist for the RCMP") MacDonald.
Student reaction to the right-wingers?
The wag who waved the "Better Red than Fred"
sign seemed to typify UBC student reaction to Schwarz
and Co.
Seems to us that students are missing a crack at
witch hunting for fun aond profit.
Think of the possibilities:
We could hold hysterical anti-Communist rallies that
might lead to riot;
We could burn crosses in front of the club room
where UBC's miniscule (21-member) Communist
party hangs out;
We could denounce as subversive any prof who was
failing us;
And we could have anti-Communist parties, admitting
only bona fide members bearing their anti-Communist cards, jackets and diamond-studded membership pin.
Or perhaps UBC students just haven't noticed the
Red Tide creeping over us.
Who to run?
It's that magic time of year again.
You know, the one we used to read about in our
grade eight text-books about voting and democracy and
the democratic process and leadership.
And as usual, it seems the grade eight text was lying
when it said we had choice and a vote.
If we don't have candidates we won't have a choice
or a vote. So far it doesn't look as if there will be many
The First Slate elections are upon us. Nominations
for president, second vice-president and secretary close

The most persistent grumblers never seem to turn
up come election time.

that the following, like the word democracy, is cliche-
ridden but effective.)

Dear Mummy:
UBC sure is a wild place. I
mean, there's so much neat
stuff to do here, and you have
to do a lot of things to get a

So I'll just tell you about
last week here, Mom, and

On Monday the week of
Christian Unity started. And
I went to all kinds of prayer

to rush a frat.

these neat things come only
This weekend, I'm going to
Mardi Gras, that's a thing all
my new fraternity friends
have set up. It's a wild, wild
dance (there's nothing wrong
with dancing, Mom, really)
that we all go to in way-out
costumes. My new friends
talked me into going as the
New Year. Won't that be fun,
eh Mom? But they said that
new members of the frat have
to buy pop and other beverages for all the old members.
So I need more money to buy
pop and candy bars for my
new friends, then when I'm an
old member all the new ones
will buy it for me.
Oh yes, mom. Some of my
friends would like for me to
buy some grass for them, I
thought they said for them,
but they must have horses
just like Daddy. They called
it pot too—I think that's like

Oh yes, mom. I'm moving
out of the dorms so I can
move in with my new buddies
at this place called a pad so
they can help me more with
my studies.
And, Mom, I'm learning to
speak Russian with all the
kids from other countries at
IH so I can help my other new
friends catch Communists.
These nice men were here the
other day making a speech
about communists in our government, and they showed me
the light so I had to tell my
new political friends to go
away because I was. against
them now. But then Tommy
Douglas was here, and he's
not such a bad guy after all.
Not as bad as Daddy says
anyway. He talked me into
joining up with his political
friends, so I think I will.
They've got a frat called Nu
Delta Phi. I'll have to ask my
new friend Roger what to do
though because I don't really
know and you and dad don't
know enough about it all to
help me properly.
Aren't you glad I'm here at
university learning all these
things so I can come home and
tell you all about it?
Love, Georgie.
PS: Mom, I won't be home
this summer because my new
friends at The Ubyssejr ^(that's
the student newspaper, Mom)
showed me that newspaper
reporters aren't really bad
men and they might get me
a job at the Pacific Tribune
this summer, Mom.

The results of this majority role were not always
good for the church. Unwilling to bite the hand that
fed her, the church too often forfeited her duty of
prophetic criticism.
Kierkegaard over a century ago, complained in his
Attack Upon Christendom
that the Christianity of the
New Testament no longer
In the United States,
where an officially established church was forbidden
by the First Amendment to
the Constitution, an unofficially established church resulted. Will Herberg in his
Protestant, Catholic, Jew,
says that this new "American religion" has been compounded of bits and pieces of
patriotism, private enterprise and frontier individualism baptized with the
terminology of traditional
But the winds of change
are blowing. The Supreme
Court declares worship exercises in public schools to
be unconstitutional. Public
law diverges more and more
from traditional Christian
morality. The old deity is
replaced by a new one supplied by science.
•    •    •
Large numbers of people
who joined the church after
World War II to find suburban respectability and togetherness are now either
coming to grips with the
really tough questions of
Christian theology and ethics and meaning or are drifting out of the church altogether.
At first, churchmen might
be tempted to panic. But
second thoughts show
churchmen their new opportunity. Christianity has never thrived as a majority religion.
Official favor and patronizing affluence has only corrupted it, sapped its honesty,
silenced its anger, tamed its
revolutionary potential.
Maybe this is one of the
church's oddest paradoxes:
it succeeds only when it
fails, that is, it succeeds in
being itself only when it
fails to accommodate itself
to the majority. But is this
saying something against
Christianity, or is it saying
something about human nature?
• •    •
The new church will be a
smaller church. But it will
be lean, disciplined, articulate, committed to action,
able to absorb hostility and
respond with love. I hope
it also keeps its sense of
humor and spares itself another Cromwellian era„
An example of the present
transition from majority
role is the church's ambivalent response to the Civil
Rights struggle. That Negroes share fully with whites
the image of the Creator
and are entitled to all of the
privileges of a democratic
society is a principle plainly required by New Testament Christianity.
• •    •
But the White Establishment in both North and
South resisted the clear implications of this truth.
To the extent that the organized church was a captive of political and financial forces that were committed to the status quo, the
church either supported racial discrimination or she
maintained a deafening silence.
To the extent that the
church accepted the necessity of choosing between the
New Testament and social
privilege, she acted against
racial discrimination and
took the consequences. The
racial issue compelled
churchmen to "fish or cut
• •    •
Interestingly, the pressures of a fairly hostile culture produced more unity
within Christian circles than
decades of ecumenical discussion. Conservative and
liberal Protestants found
themselves   standing   shoul
der to shoulder with Roman
Catholics in saying a belated but firm "no longer"
to the humiliation of minorities.
Senators and Congressmen have admitted that the
surprising unity and toughness of churchmen across
the land helped vastly in
the passage of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964.
• •    •
The ruckus at the University of California in Berkeley over the past several
months is not entirely unconnected with this whole
emergence of Christian ethics into the realm of overt
action. Not all prophetic
voices with Galilean accents
come from inside the organized church. The idealistic
commitment of many students connected with the
Free Speech Movement is
deep and tenacious. Some
of these students literally
put their lives in jeopardy in
Mississippi helping Negroes
to register to vote.
• •    •
Many believe that as a
last resort acts of non-violent civil disobedience are
necessary as a form of
"speech", to dramatize issues that other forms of
speech have tailed to get
across. Whatever one may
say of the methods used by
the Free Speech Movement,
there is an underlying current idealism that intends to
accomplish social change in
the direction of justice.
But to return to the Post-
- Establishment church, I believe that a minority position is nothing for Christianity to fear. Our brothers in

I became eligible for one
last weekend.
I suppose it has been coming for a long time — but
why did it have to happen
all at once? It took less than
on hour for youth to wrinkle
up into a fuzzy-grey memory.
During that carefree former period, which I had
thought had been a relatively brief existence, I was
known to laugh, sing, play,
and occasionaly utter such
frivolous things as "Whoopee."
Now, all that is deeper in
my past than B.C. is in debt.
I am old.
I am old. I am melancholy.
I doubt whether I am

Legion for the bingo game
Saturday night started out
like any other Saturday
night: fog, beer, the gang
together for a party. It was
not the old gang, of course.
There were all sorts of new
kids there — all teeny-aged
and fuzzy-cheeked and shiny-
eyed — but then there had
always been kids like that
at  our parties.
Hell, wasn't I one of them?
I thought I was. Wasn't that
why my friends always
called me The Kid? Sure.
But Age was there, too.
It was lurking in the foam
of my beer, skulking along
in the darkest corners of the
room, waiting for the Light
To Go Out.
It happened, just about 1
a.m., just when the drunks
have rolled home and my
old gang starts to have fun.
This new fellow, a freshman, a rather precocious
but very likeable chap,
wiggled over to the record
player and put on a Beatles
Now there is nothing unusual or portentous about
this, ordinarily. We always
play Beatle records. The editor's kid brother buys them,
and he always brings them
to the parties because they
are the only records we can
(I know now that this was
all just a horrible rationalization — we were just trying to fool ourselves into
thinking we were contemporary.)
As usual, I was out there
on the dance floor, making
the usual exhibition of myself. So was the rest of the
old gang, of course, so it
didn't  really matter.
I doubt whether there has
ever been a spectacle of unco-ordination quite like me,
palpitating to She Loves
You and Hoo-Hoo, I Go Ga-
Ga, and all those other
things those filthy rich Englishmen warble.
Well, it was right in the

in mid-air, my trailer hanging out in a dangerous 12-
wheel skid, my pride rather
self - consciously splattered
all over the floor.
Quickly regaining what
composure I had left, I asked
her what in Paul McCartney's name was the matter
with HER?
"It's YOU," she said, smil-
i n g the mOst unnerving
smile I have ever seen.
"You're FUNNY."
I was almost afraid to do
it, but I demanded an explanation.
"That dance," she said, sev-
enteenly. "You don't dance
like THAT. Do it this way."
And she proceeded to twitch
and writhe and squirm,
rather alluringly, I must admit.
"That's the JERK," she
said. My first thought was
that she meant me, but she
assured me otherwise.
"C'mon," she said. "Try it.
Swing it, daddy." (I should
have got the hint when she
said Daddy.)
Foolishly, I plunged into
a rather futile attempt at
the intricacies of The Jerk.
Failure,  utter failure.
"Do the Bird," she said,
and this time it was almost
a taunt. I explained to her
that the closest I had come
to wings was when I put
my father on the TCA jet
last summer.
"Oh, you're hopeless."
She proceeded through
the Frug, the Shrug, the
Mug, and the Bug. I boggled,
I bungled. I bumbled.

It was the perfect squelch.
Nobody laughed. It would
have been much, much easier if they had. They just
sort of sniggered.
The young girl smiled
seventeenly, again. She did
not mean it, but she sort of
apologized for her comment,
which really hurled me back
there with the Sphinx and
the Greeks and the Ice Age.
I didn't cry, although I
should have. I just said, "Oh,
at LEAST 22," and she rubbed it in, quite unintentionally, by giving me a look of
pity that I am sure she
would not have given the
most miserable, destitute,
starving peasant child.
I was brought back to the
present by a shout from one
of my friends, one of the
Old Gang — the Old, Old
Gang now.
"Hey, look at The Kid,"
he shouted.
I turned around in response to the nickname I
had known for so many
years,  only to see  that the
comment was not addressed
to me. My friends were looking at the young freshman
who had put on the Beatle
record. He was squirming
around in the middle of the
floor, doing something
which I now knew sorrowfully to be The Mump.
"Looka The Kid, looka
The Kid," they chorused,
quite unaware of me, smothering and choking in the
darkened corner, the claws
of Age at last consuming me.
I got up and tried to
dance. I couldn't, because
my joints were suddenly
stiff. I tried my famous Hairpin Turn. I spun out, bruised
and flabby and crumpled.
Then I quit. I pulled up a
chair in front of the big fire-
place—just like I knew my
grandmother used to do
when she was knitting those
horrible socks she used to
give me for Christmas. I sat
there, roundshouldered, and
watched The Kid.
India treads
narrow road
twixt Democrats
and Bolsheviks
TN THE midst of the cold
■*• war array of opposing
forces, it is India's unfortunate lot to be labelled the
largest democratic country.
Once, the cold war was a
straight fight between the
U.S. and the U.S.S.R. and, it
was hinted, it -was immoral
not to be called the ally of
the one or the other. Now it
is re-interpreted as a war
between democracy and
communism and apparently
it is again impossible not to
take sides.
On the other hand, intellectuals and economic experts take a look at India's
problems and sigh over the
fate of its "democracy".
Some suggest it would
have been better had the
child been strangled at
Others profess grave
doubts as to wether thej:hild

It would be only polite to
suggest that this child of
5,000 years is perhaps old
enough to decide what she
Since independence, India
has held three general elections involving the largest
electorate in the world. The
question naturally arises —
is this democracy in operation, or a farce?
This mass of some 470
million people, three-quarters of them illiterate, nine-
tenths under - nourished,
faced with the problem of
feeding 15 million extra
mouths every year — what
do they understand of the
meaning and purpose of
democratic elections?
Before answering this
question, it would perhaps
be better to examine our
terms a little more closely.
Democracy   has   become,
(Continued on Page 4)

(Continued  from Page   3)
through necessity, a very
flexible word, able to contain within itself the rabid
free enterprise of the U.S.
and Hitler's Germany and
the welfare statism of Sweden and New Zealand.
The only thing that these
different systems shared was
a belief in the right of every
man to be able to take part
in the acts of government,
through a form of parliamentary representation.
Basically, then, a definition
of democracy as practised
today can mean only that—
and in that sense India is
certainly a democracy.
• •    •
As for other democratic
ideals, i tseems naive to expect a tarnished country to
live up to what the affluent
can't afford. After observing
the late President Kennedy
win an election on the
strength of family tea parties for voters and a handsomer personality that was more
telegenic than that of his
rival, one is inclined to wonder whether the Indian voter
can be faulted.
A high school certificate
and a well-fed stomach are
not necessary prerequisites
for political maturity.
On the contrary, the
hungry peasant is fully
aware of his immediate
needs; his connection with
politics or anything else
lasts only as long as he can
see its relevance to satisfying these needs.

his democratic rights; his

This definition of democracy is very different
from others that exist in the
Western's mind.
But the different problems of other nations have
led to different experience
and different solutions, all
of which today go under the
name of democracy. Why
not the Indian experience
and the Indian solution also?
• •    •
One question still remains: can this Indian democracy continue to exist?
The answer is: Why not?
What is there that can destroy it?
The Western world may
choose to go on playing its
war games between democracy and communism but,
to the Indian mind, the slogans of Russian bolsheviks
and the hymns of American
capitalism appear equally
The real problem there is
the economic one and the
winning side is the one that
convinces   the   peasant that
PF   Four
he has an economic stake in
its success.
Besides, to his pragmatic
mind, the two systems do
not appear incompatible; a
democracy does not rule out
a Communist revolution
within it.
His need is for a solu-
to his problem—he does not
care which label is attached
to it externally.
Perhaps, then, the continued existence of democracy will be guaranteed by
an elementary fact—it simply got there first.

Friday is in need of a reviewer familiar with the

Tamarack Review, Fiddle-
head, Evidence, etc. A comparison to these periodicals

This seagull's
a wild bird —
with droppings
dead on stage . .
We at the Playhouse
think of this play more as a
compassionate study of a
group of human beings 'trapped in their own environment than as an out-and-out
comedy." — Malcolm Black,
artistic director of the Playhouse company in the program notes to The Seagull.
•    •    •
That mild statement
makes me yell. "Compassionate study" my eye — the
play is a tragedy! Of course,
in theatrical terms, that
would be overstating the
case. My real quarrel is with
the implication that "out-
and-out comedy" cannot portray a compassionate or
even a tragic situation. Witness Charlie Chaplin. And it
seems to me that Chekhov's
play absolutely requires a
comic — at times even a
farcical — style so the audience really feels with the
characters on the stage.
Their suffering is real;
there's no mistake about
that. There is unrequited
love, ruined and wasted
lives; and worst of all,
people unable to help each
other, unable even to approach each other.
• •    •
Every character in the
play is locked forever within himself—alone. A director is obliged to portray
these things if he wishes to
be faithful to the author.
It is this very responsibility
which traps so many directors into playing Chekhov
(and especially The Seagull)
as if it were Ibsen.
But the Russians, as Chekhov writes them are not as
earnest and puritanical as
the Scandinavians Ibsen portrays.
No. They are pretentious,
they sit and drink tea and
they talk, talk, talk, never
listening to each other; they
exaggerate absolutely every
emotion they feel — they
make themselves look ridiculous.
This is the very thing that
most English-speaking companies refuse to do. They
are afraid. They do not want
to rob the characters of their
dignity. They fear that the
audience will then misunderstand — that they will be
doing Chekhov a disservice.
• •    •
This is a mistake. It is precisely when we laugh at
Nina and Irina and the others, even at poor Konstan-
tin, that we feel the pain of
their dilemma most acutely.
The laughter is an arrow
carrying the play to the
heart. And if laughter is
missing the play must fall.
For it is not just a question
of local color, this Russian
It is woven into the fabric itself and you can't pull
all those threads without
ruining the meaningful design.
The Playhouse production
fails in this way. Although
the actors play well and fulfill their task of presenting
their director's interpretation, their play is too sol-
eirinn their characterizations
too Anglicized, straightforward and uncomplicated.
• •    •
The sets are excellent in
concept but are not dressed
lovingly enough. The airiness of the interior set fights
with heaviness of a squat
sideboard, placed so that the
jarring proportions are
stressed. The lake is marvelous, but it is not related in
space to the garden. The
production seems to stop
short f what it could be in
every way.
Let me add that I've not
spoken to a single person
who saw the play and agrees
with me. Everyone else
loves it, is moved by it, and
thinks it excellent. It will
be at the Playhouse until

At his press conference on

Schwarz, with straight face,
said: "As far as I'm concerned, Communism is a

Being as kind as possible
to Dr. Schwarz — after all,
he is an Australian — he has
got it upside down, for, if
anything, Communism was
here first. Being not so kind,
it doesn't matter whether
Communism or Fascism
came first for they are both
—in Dr. Schwarz's terminology — of the genus totalitarian.
• •    •
Example  two,  from   the
book; Dr. Schwarz writes in
a chapter headed the Difficult, Dangerous and Devious
Dialectic: "The dialectical
philosophy is the most difficult, the least understood
and possibly the most important aspect of Communism.
"The difficult, devious
and dangerous dialectic  be
came the tool with which
Stalin justified the murder
of millions. Unless we understand it, it is probable
that it may be used historically to justify the demise of
all free peoples."
Well, dialectical materialism is difficult and devious
all right because it is almost meaningless gobbledy-
gook. Not too many people
understand it because there
isn't much point in understanding it.
John Plamenatz, the Oxford philosopher who ably
tears Marxism to shreds, has
this to say about the dialectic:
• •    •
"Dialectic   materialism   is
not really a theory at all; it
means very little and implies very little; it is a kind
of preliminary patter to prepare the mind for historical
materialism which no more
rests upon it than a ship
does on its own reflection
in the water."
I'll take Plamenatz for
my Marx, thank  you.
Yet Schwarz devotes his
longest chapter to dialectic
materialism, filled with such
profundities as "if we examine it in more detail we
see there are two elements
in it. There is the dialectic
portion ..." and you know
what the other portion is.
The man obviously does
not know Of which he
speaks although he says it
will (with profuse analogies
and examples).
• •    •
His whole book is like
this. He quotes extensively
from the works of Lenin
and Liu Shao-ch'i, the heir
apparent to Mao Tse-tung in
It's nice to see a man do
original research but the
works he quotes, particularly of Lenin, have, by the
accounts of the best students of Soviet government,
little to do with the actual
operation of the state.
The works he quotes are
treated in the Soviet Union
as we treat the beatitudes.
(Name one person you know
who consciously acts under
the principle of the meek
shall  inherit  the   earth.)
Dr. Schwarz's main interest, of course, is internal
communism — the international conspiracy. Much of
the book is devoted to this
prblem. His lecture Tuesday night at the Queen Elizabeth was on the Communist plot to overthrow Canada.
• •    •
Yet, this was the man who
wasn't sure, when questioned by reporters, what the
Sino-Soviet split had done to
the Canadian Communist
Party. One begins to wonder.
One gets the impression
that Dr. Schwarz is on to a
good thing and is going to
flog the daylights out of it.
An he is obviously doing
a good job of flogging.

around the one million copy

Some are poets, some are not:
Poet Winter rolls out of his
tangled bed, springs his aching
ass into high gear, and falls
into Page Friday's poet colony
Into the long night
Of willful deprivation
An insomnia of thoughts
Scramble under the cranium wall
Like arpeggios of rat's feet;
He bites his pencil in two.
With print-red eyes
And read-exhausted brain
Heat-fused into one.
Cramming scribbled notes
Into crevices in cranium jelly.
He pours another coffee.
Mixing memory with desire.
The reason quickly falters
And the thought-executing page
Blurs inviting escape
Into sensual reminiscence;
He rips the pinup down.
The pressure of retention
Like a stretched rubber bandage
Tightly encircling the head
Makes restful sleep
An impossible benediction;
He rolls in his tangled bed.
Between the memory
And the written page
Dies the pencil;
Between the thought
And the execution
Dies the enforced will;
He shifts his aching ass.
After the trial, the regret
For the points not mentioned:
A painful disproportion
Between  the  studied preparation
And the hurried performance;
With wet feet he waits for a but.

crowd — it's all
about you • . •
I want to talk about this
book again. I'm sure no-one
has read it since the first
review, two weeks ago.
There are six or seven
principal characters to the
work. Most of them seem
rather like grown-up Caf
types, with a few Brock-
wanderers thrown in. There
is even a somewhat-engineer, although he gets converted to vaguely Ponderosa
in the end. Some of the
Caf-types finally wing into
Brock, a few of the Brock-
people actually make it to
the Caf. All the characters
are   at   least   in   their   30s,
THE DEMONS. (Die Damo-
nen) by Heimito von Doderer pub. N.Y., Alfred
Knopf,  1961, 2 vols.
none of them smoke grass,
all live in Vienna during the
post World War I period.
Katejan (that's a principal
character — he's a writer)
has a hang-up. (In the book
it's more precisely called
an obsession.). He digs fat
women. Obese, corpulent,
flesh-ridden broads. His sister (really his step-sister,
but that's not until later—
a would-be musician) also
has a hang-up. She's broke,
and she needs money. Like
she really needs it; she's
only half a person without
it. She wants to be a musician but she's afraid to play
in public. Rene (a historian,
teaches at University) has a
hang-up too. He doesn't like
his chick's family. They're
They    all    recover.    Each
PF  Six
one makes it — over the
hump and through the hangup. They come out whole-r.
Towards the finish line, by
a few steps Leonard (he's
the engineer-type who limps,
then runs, towards the Caf)
begins to study Latin, finally lands a job as a librarian. That wasn't his intention in studying, it just happens that way.
It's not a question of planning, really. Who plans?
Who wants to get hung-up?
Or possessed? Who really
plans how to get out of it?
Who can?
This is not a do-it-yourself
psychology book on how to
get unobsessed. It's a chronicle, a history, a highly entertaining story, an enlightening look-see into the lives
and workings of some surprising, fascinating people.
Metaphysical speculations
are up to the reader. He who
can and will, shall. He who
cares, will. He who can,
ought to. Read it.
Yeah, I'm hung-up on this
book. I want to get everyone to read it. I mean, how
often does a book come
along which isn't on anybody's list, which has a
sexy-middle (not quite
Pussy Galore, but specific
enough for even the hardheads), swings from start to
finish, has little commentaries which are handy enough
to drag out anywhere from
cocktail party to Caf, is replete with enough specific
images and sophisticate symbolism for even the undev-
ious mind to figure out, and
is even esoteric enough to
give you a slightly eccentric
reputation when you start
touting it?
Not only that, it's well
written. Not only that, it's
a great book. Not only that,
you might even like it.
It's about you. You and
the people you know. It's
about Vancouver, about Boston, about damned near anywhere. It's about time. It's,
about what happens in time,
how time changes and you
change. It's about all the
crazy things that happen
when you know people.
People who know.
Peter, Peter

couldn't beat her
Excuse me but I'm going
to pick Pauline Kael's brains
—just a little bit—and quote
a  quote  she researched.
"For me films are primarily a diversion. If I want
to think, I read." — Chairman of the Jury at the 1961
Cannes Film Festival. The
statement is typical—many
people refuse to acknowledge the cinema as a significant art. Probably, they
never go to see any films.
When you see a film like
The Pumpkin Eater the lie
is immediately given to this
argument. The cinema is,
definitely, a unique and
significant art. Perhaps what
the above critic is mad at, or
jealous of, is the potential
of cinema to outstrip its
less livelier colleagues —
books, static art and the
The Pumpkin Eater was
adapted from a novel. After
seeing the film I wish not to
read the book. The letdown
would be too great.
Jack Clayton has created
an ingenious and magnificent film. Acting, direction,
photography and whatnot
are all perfectly in tune, although influences are obvious. Peter Finch (Peter,
Peter, Pumpkin Eater. Had
a wife and couldn't keep
her.) is excellent. Anne Bancroft emulates Jeanne Mor-
eau and is also excellent.
Clayton's direction is reminiscent of Moderato Cantabile
and is flawless. With technical perfection like this,
one hardly finds direct influence  annoying.
Pumpkin Eater has been
accused of Antonioni influence by some art-seeking
English critics.
(Here, I must reveal that
they found the Antonioni
influence pleasing. Leave it
to the English critics. They
always like the arty stuff
and hate flippant stuff. Maybe it's just a stage, like adolescence or something.)
Although there is the occasional unworkable expressionist shot, most of it
works, and works to Clayton's purpose, without falling into the trap of self-
conscious Antonioni film.
Character relationships are
worked out with precise
care and little hurry — and
this is what makes Pumpkin
Eater such a success.
Meaningful shots are not
there just for the sake of
having good old meaningful
shots. Expressionist views
enhance the development of
plot and character and do
not annoy as most of An-
tonioni's do.
As you have probably
guessed, Pumpkin Eater is
a think-film unlike zany
Man From Rio. Nevertheless
it is not, repeat emphatically
not, a boring film — it is
satisfying and stimulating.
La Dolce Vita bored with
its obvious pseudo-think content. Pumpkin Eater stimulates with its artistic honesty. I'm sorry I haven't
room to expand the theory
and I realize I've left myself
open to argument. Ask me
Only Harold Pinter could
have written the screenplay
for Pumpkin Eater. The dialogue sequence at the cocktail party is typical Pinter.
There is none of the significant snatches of talk found
in lesser films, but an artistic reality.
It's a great film, Clayton!

Portrait Of
my mother
as a
yoang gift
It's always strange to think of
your mother as having been your
age once—and having had your
very problems.
It wasn't until I found a picture
of her in an old trunk that I
really realized she might have
been the sister I'd never had.
So I decided to talk out some
things with her that I'd been
reserved about before.
It was wonderful!
One of the things I wanted to ask
her about was Tampax internal
sanitary protection. I showed her
a Tampax ad that promised all
sorts of nice things, like feeling
cool, clean, fresh, and asked her
to explain the product to me.
Girls, if you have questions you
want answered, why don't you
show your mother this ad?

Slow fingers
foul up prof's
playing of
common stuff . ..
Part of the Department
of Music's curriculum are
the seldom-advertised evening recitals, many of which
are held on Tuesday evenings in Bu. 106.
Last Tuesday, pianist and
faculty member Kathyrn
Bailey gave a program of
well-known works by Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert.
It is hard to tell whether
this program had educational purposes, as did others in
the series, and if it did, why
such frequently-played compositions were performed.
Certainly the performance
revealed lack of preparation, a fault most noticeable
in the Beethoven Sonata,
op. 10, no. 1.
Tempo and finger-work
were ragged and phrasing
often rushed. The second
movement was much too
slow, and, consequently,
lost the necessary sense of
Mrs. Bailey was more at
home in the Brahms pieces,
and in the slow intermezzi
she achieved some really
beautiful moments, unhampered by technical difficulties.
The Schubert sonata in B
flat received a sensitive and
expressive reading, although
the first movement in particular suffered from fluctuations in tempo and a somewhat square rhythm.
The next Department of
Music presentation will be
a Collegium Musicum entitled "Heinrich Biber, Composer and Violinist."
Lectures on this German
master on the Baroque period will be given in Music
104 at noon and 8 p.m. today.
Beautiful Bach
a bit botched
by baroque
old Brahms...
It is not often one has the
opportunity to hear a recital
devoted largely to the works
of Bach, and still more rare
to hear his keyboard music
from the hands of an interpreter such as Rosalyn Tur-
At her recital in the Frederic Wood Theatre last Sunday evening, in co-operation
with the CBC, she served
notice that she must be considered among the foremost
Bach artists of our time.
The opening work, a Prelude and Fugue on the Name
of Bach, displayed at once
the sort of vitality one associates with the Baroque
Miss Tureck's tone was
crisp and clear, although at
times a bit metallic. The
fugue displayed an admirable clarity' of texture and
conception, occasionally
marred, however, by over-
subordination of non-subject
In the Capriccio on the
Departure of a Beloved
Brother, an early example
of program music and a
work of Bach's youth, there
was the same clear texture,
and in the "Lament", a
beautifully warm tone.
The difficult "Fugue in
Imitation of the Postillion's
Horn" started well, but a
memory slip resulted in an
unfortunate increase in tempo, a fault which also appeared in the finale of the
Italian Concerto.
From a glance at the program, one would suppose the
sole non-Bach work,
B r a h m ' s Variations and
Fugue on a Theme of Handel, to be out of place.
And indeed it was, notwithstanding Miss Tureck's
making the most of the
piece's Baroque aspects.
Throughout her matter-of-
fact demeanor and absolute
rigidity of tempo seemed
curiously anachronistic. Miss
Tureck has a considerable
reserve of power, but I wish
she would not use it all—her
tone becomes hard and her
Brahms overstated.
Miss Tureck should stick
with Bach. She plays Bach

CBC lackeys
buffoon Rubes
at epoch mish
The diamond jubilee celebrated Tuesday evening by
the Vancouver Woman's
Musical Club was practically everything an end-of-
epoch should not have been.
The first half of the program, a performance by Jan
Rubes of The Music Master,
was a tribute only to the
talents of the CBC production staff — who succeeded
in amusing the audience-
while taping it.
The second half was a
"tribute" to improvised buffoonery, again dominated
by Mr. Rubes.
Neither half had any but
the most questionable relevance either to music or the
significance of the Vancouver Woman's Musical Club.
The only moment of apparent truth in the whole evening came when Mr. Rubes,
having stared down the late
and noisily-arriving m e m -
bers of the official party, led
the audience in applause
upon their being seated, and
remarked: "They came late,
and they missed the fun."
Otherwise it was a masterpiece of incongruity; the
music master addressing
himself fervently to an orchestra which was obviously
located behind him, the
music master resorting to
every grostesquerie in attempting to string out a basically wobbly plot, the concert baritone in white tie
and tails informally strumming a guitar while singing
The Departed Donkey, the
ascetic orchestral conductor,
similarly attired, providing
an insipid piano accompaniment to Wagon Wheels.
In short, the concert offered little hope for the
past, present, or future of
an organization which, whatever else it has done, has
contributed greatly to Vancouver's   musical history.
Nor did it do much for
the image of a performer
who is legitimately great as
a concert artist.
Umber Lopez
lyrical love
song singer
in Bunkhouse
Wednesday night I decided I had better find out what
the act at the Bunkhouse
was like. I arrived in the
middle of the first set and
saw this fellow sitting on the
stage wearing a sombero,
serapi and what looked like
a fine suit in the Spanish
fashion. He was equipped
with a Spanish guitar, was
slightly dark in complexion
and had small closely cropped mustache. He is Carlos
Lopez, a former Mexican
bullfighter. His guitar is
simple but effective as he
sings (mostly in Spanish)
love songs or folk ballads of
Mexico and Spain. Good
voice and enunciation make
the difference for the sustained notes that are common in this type of singing.
•   •   •
Next, I went down to the
Ark with Les Stork, the
owner of the Bunkhouse, to
see what was going on down
there. The Kentucky Colonels were still there and also
there were a few pipers
from the Seaforth Highlanders waiting for the arrival
of Jean Redpath, who starts

Friday, January 22,   1M5
They went and cheered Saturday. But don't fret Roger,
it didn't cost the University a penny.
Ten dedicated cheerleaders donned their skirts and sweaters, racked themselves into four cars and went south with the
spirit and pride of ye old campus to cheer their Birds to a
basketball victory over Portland State.
Transportation, accommodation and expenses? Naturally
they paid it themselves. Where else do you expect the money
to come from, the Athletic department? Over McAfee's dead
These darling damsels
spent $224.00 of their hard
earned cash to carry the student's load and the University's so-called name to the
American campus to show
the south that UBC has as
much pride in their boys as
Alabama has in Joe Namath.
The sweethearts took four
cars that take gasoline to
move. Therefore if we add
$17, $19, $16 and $20 we get
a total of $72.00.
Now the girls left in the
wee hours of Friday morning
and returned on the Sabbath.
They had to stay that extra
night because the roads
weren't the greatest for late
night cruising. So the cost
of resting on this spirited
trip came to $72.00.
. on the ball
Yes, Roger, they tried to get the cheapest rooms and no,
the tenting grounds were closed because of the cold.
Now, about the meals. As you know all humans must eat.
Some eat a lot and some stick to their diet, eh Rog. So the
girls, to keep fit and trim for their outfits, and to keep the
waistline in form stuck to the minimum which came to $80.00
for the entire escapade.
So there it is my boy. The expense of the privilege for
cheerleaders to go and cheer for their team; fully complemented by the Athletic department and all their connections;
congratulated by their fellow students, ignored by the AMS
and frowned upon by your agent.
Ignored and frowned upon? You better believe it. Why
in the hell should cheerleaders have to pay the shot for a trip
to cheer for the pride and joy of sports minded UBC so that
the administration can be satisfied that opposing schools
won't jeer at the sight of no support from McAfee's own?
Equal rights for a few?
Do players from any of UBC's sports pay their own
way on trips, pay to eat and sleep? How about the coaches?
Well then, why should cheerleaders? Players play, coaches
coach and the honeys cheer. They are all part of the campus
and deserve the same rights and privileges.
I have said it before and I say it again. Somebody better
get on the Ball or get off the Bus!
Things are getting worse all the time and every year.
Remember last November when the football club made its
first ever excursion to San Francisco? Have you forgotten
already Roger? Well let me refreshen your memory. The
Athletic department was so kind to the cheerleaders that
they paid half of their fare, return that is. But only the fare!!
The rest was paid by the girls, with help by the football
players from money they made (which actually belonged to
the club) by selling Date Cards to spirited students.
Not this time. No help.
But the girls went anyway because they have something
that very little of UBC has. Spirit and pride.
They disregard being ignored and continue on their cheery
But they are typical females, you can't tell them a thing
and they won't take no for an answer. They will go on cheering, carrying the campus spirit on their shoulders regardless
of the attitude taken by by the so-called Athletic department.
Its skating lessons
for ragged Birds
The hockey Birds, after a disastrous trip into the interior,
are currently spending their flying time in the afternoons
in practise sessions aimed at learning how to skate.
Last weekend the pucksters dropped a 5-3 decision to
Notre Dame and a 9-5 count to the Rossland Warriors of
the W1HL.
The Birds will play the New Westminster Pioneers Friday night at 8 p.m. in the Winter Sports Centre on campus.
The screduled game with the Trail Smokeaters was called
off earlier this week due to a lengthy Trail sick list.
The Pioneers should give the T-Birds a strong game as
they currently lead the Coquitlam Senior Amateur League
with a fantastic 19-2 record and have a player called Pete
Eades who has 49 goals and 42 assists in 21 games.

Gene Rizak and Bob Barazzuol are presently waging a
red-hot battle for T'Bird scoring honors; Rizak with a 13.8
average per game and Barazzuol a short stroke behind at
The team scoring average to
date is a respectable 66.3 and
their shooting average stands
at 41 per cent.
UBC may face added difficulty in this game due to the
fact that Viking supporters
are known to pelt opposing
teams with apples and oranges.
The result however, may be
a  very fruitful trip.
A little more serious . . .
is the fact that Western Washington recently whitewashed

UBC hosts the sixth annual Thunderette basketball tournament tonight and Saturday.
Eight teams from Dawson
Creek to Victoria are entered
in what should provide a display of the finest women's
basketball in Canada. All
games will be played in the
women's gym.
Thunderette coach Ruth Wilson, evaluating UBC's chances,
pointed out that this year's
team are young "right out of
high school" with only two returnees from last year.
"We have height," she said,
"we're tall and we're fast but
we lack experience."
"The team to beat is Richmond, defending tournament
champions and 1964 Canadian
champions," said Miss Wilson.
A big experienced team, Richmond does not have any weak
spots and are favoured to take
it again.
Giving UBC and Richmond
a run for the top spots should
be Mount Pleasant Legion,
Canadian Junior Champs in
1963 and 1964.
One of Canada's best woman
athletes will be playing for
Richmond. Look for top calibre play from Mary Macdonald, best women's volleyball
and basketball player in Canada, and Most Valuable Player
in the 1964 Canadian basketball championships.
UBC captain and star centre Dianne Bond will be another to watch. A short five
foot twelve, Miss Bond is a
feminine terror on the boards
and has a lethal hook shot.
Continued good play is ex-
p e c t e d on the Thunderette
squad from rookie Pauline
Gensick and Marion "Bounci-
ness" Alexander.
Said Coach Wilson, "We'll
be happy to show well and
give Richmond a jolly good
