No warning
on WW III
By  ANN   BURGE
,World War III will have no
element of prediction, psychology professor, Dr. Donald
Sampson said Wednesday.
."Previous wars ' all held
some element of .prediction—
this time no one can know,"
he said.
"Man is in the impossible
possition where vanity could
cause his destruction.
"For years, Russia and the
U.S. have been pushing each
other towards the point where
there is no room to maneuver
—no way to back out and still
save face.
"Is it any wonder people are
scared?"
"Students are placed in tne
most tragic situation. The war
is not their affair; they make
none of its decisions, yet it is
they who will forfeit their
lives for it," he said.
Dr. Sampson feels that
. people are "whistling in the
dark" when they joke about
the war.
"Death is too big a thing to
fear without joking about it,"
he said.
"Even in World War II there
was a distinct line between
those who fought and those
who stayed home."

PHILOSOPHY PROFESSOR Dr.
R. J. Rowan was one of five
professors who spoke at Wednesday's forum. Partial texts
of the speeches are reprinted
on page three.
Five thousand students jammed Main Mall Wednesday
for a mass forum on the Cuban crisis.
The  crowd  neard  five   pro-    _—___*>^^__
fessors  denounce   military  action as a solution to world disorder.
Only one person, a student,
took the platform to argue ir>.
favor of the U.S. quarantine
of Cuba.
The students were quiet
and attentive for the length
of the mass meeting, instigated
by the UBC Nuclear Disarmament Club and the Student
Christian  Movement.
Each professor agreed mankind was on the brink of insanity. Each agreed peaceful
negotiation, not military might,
is the rational solution for
man's problems.
"We are all threatened with
being blown off the map," said
Dr. Norman Epstein, of the
Faculty of Applied Science.       I
"The decision of the U.S. j
government . . . to start pro- |
duction of H-Bombs was made |
without consulting the British, i
Canadian, and Latin American |
satellites."
Dr. James Foulks, head of
the department of pharmacology, said crisis may well
follow crisis unless urgent
steps are taken to halt future
tensions.
Goal is disarmament
Classes cancelled
Classes will be cancelled
this afternoon for the installation ot Dr. John Macdonald
as president of the University.
Ceremonies will be held in the
Armory at 2:15 p.m.
Calm rally
halts UN day.
The 17th aniversary of the
United Nations went unobserved
Wednesday.
Members of the UN Club
called off the speeches and ceremony in Brock Hall lounge to
allow the few students in the
audience to see the demonstrations at the Cairn.
Meanwhile, in Vancouver,
Mayor Tom Alsbury read a
proclamation proclaiming the
city's devotion to the work of
the international body.
"We must realize that the
UN is the only organization that
can bring the world to peace,"
the mayor said.
"The possibility exists that
hostilities will erupt in any
one of a number of trouble
spots in the world," he said.
"Nuclear disarmament is
the essential goal."
Philosopher Dr. R. J. Rowan
said the U.S. ultimatum to
Cuba only aggravated ah already intolerable situation.
"The extremity of the U.S.
reaction • to the missile build,
up in Cuba seems all out of
proportion to the missiles' military significance,"  he stated.
He hinted the forthcoming
U.S. election might have been
a governing cause of Kennedy's
statements.
Michael V. Kournosoff, a
part-time lecturer in Slavonic
studies, said the Cubans were
not communists but had
turned to Russia for economic
aid when other nations refused
their help.
Kournosoff said he  was   in
Cuba this summer as a guest
of the Cuban Minister of Agriculture.
"We as individuals are at
the mercy of the American
and Russian governments,"
said Dr. Donald G. Brown, of
the philosophy department.
"Even direct appeal to the
Canadian, government ... is
not to be counted on," he said.
But he added: "I think this
crisis will be passed, having
more or less served the political purposes for which it was
manufactured."
Ross Gillanders, Ed.V, raised
the lone dissenting voice.
"This world is not a moral
world," he said. "Might and
power are the criteria that
keep any nation from being
overthrown."
"A stand had to be made to
halt this aggressive action
(in Cuba) by Russia," he continued. "Kennedy made this
stand."
5,000
jam
for forum
By  MIKE  HORSEY
The rattling of sabres echoed
on campus. Wednesday.
Five thousand students
crowded around the Cairn at
noon to hear five professors
speak on the Cuban crisis.
Every where conversation
tingled  with  tension.
Students clustered in groups
and joked nervously of "making
the best of it before the bomb"
and "taking little trips to interior lakes."
• •      •
At the Cairn, small groups of
demonstrators marched through
the. crowd with. signs opposing
President Kennedy's stand.
Other groups paraded placards reading: "Hip-hip-hooray
for JFK" and "JFK will save
the  day."
When asked who they represented they said: "All the sane
people on campus."
In the chemistry building
facing the Cairn, white-coated
scientists peered out of second
and   third-storey  windows.
On the roof of the building
about 100 students looked down
on the seething mass swarming
over the Main Mall.
Engineers sat attentively as
the speakers argued their points.
Hundreds stood on the fringe
of the crowd unable to hear
clearly but applauding vigorously from time 'to  time.
But most ot the students were
quiet   and orderly.
Altho*igh "ik few engaged in
heated arguments, there was no
physical violence.
• •-    •
pampus   opinion,   as   gauged
by 7 an informal Ubyssey poll
.showed that while students are
worried they did not think war
is imminent.
Jim Sutherland, Arts II
said: "Kennedy did the only
thing he could do. I don't think
war will start, unless someone
starts it by accident."
Jackie Harris, Arts I said:
"Someone should have done it
long ago. It's about time someone called Russia's bluff. I
don't think a war will result in
the near future."
• *      *
Ann Thorion, Arts III, said:
"Kennedy did the wrong thing.
He should have let things slide.
I think war is now closer."
Lorne Hucuiak, Arts I, said:
"From the viewpoint of international law, Kennedy is not
right. But from the North
American viewpoint he did the
only thing possible."
Meanwhile life goes on normally.
But its different now. The
jokes are sicker, the laughs are
higher pitched.
Radsoc features
Cuba crisis news
UBC Radio will keep students informed on the Cuban
crisis by a series of special
programs today.
A Radsoc spokesman said
the society will tape interviews from faculty experts on
foreign affairs and international law.
Radsoc is also monitoring
CBC news every hour on the
hour as well as broadcasting
bulletins from its Canadian
Press  teletype. Page 2

EDITORIALS
THE UBYSSEY
Follow the leader: a fatal game
A hastily painted sign in the Brock Tuesday proclaimed: "World War Three, coming
soon . . . see, hear, participate; a cast of billions."
And around the campus, other hollow jokes
-were told. One line,- "The safest place to be
right now is Cuba," usually got a good laugh.
But the jokes were not really funny, and
the cynics who told them were not really
laughing.
The jokes, instead, expressed the frustration
of a society which has lost control over where
it is going.
We cannot cope with the possibility of nuclear war because—democratic principles be
damned—our fate lies in the hands of one man
and his advisors.
John Kennedy on Monday took not only
his own people, but the people of the Western
bloc nations and the people of the rest of the
•world, to the brink of war. The action can
only be described as reckless and unlawful.
Our fates are in the hands of a man who
many U.S. government officials admit has made
the move partly to mollify the militant U.S.
right wing.
Our world is the plaything of the leader of
a peaceloving nation who willfully breaks the
laws of the only organization which can preserve world peace—the United Nations.
Let us ignore for a moment our blind unquestioning support of the U.S. and consider
the facts surrounding the* action.
President Kennedy announced that the U.S.
has "reliable" evidence that Cuba is assembling
Soviet-made intermediate range missiles—and
aiming them at the United States. We will
ignore the fact that this information has probably been gathered by the same intelligence
agency which predicted the people of Cuba
would rise up in support of an invasion of the
island. We will acknowledge that there is a
missile buildup in Cuba.
Does it mean that because one country is
supplying missiles to another country that an
attack is imminent? Or does it constitute an
aggressive action?
If it does, then how does the U.S. justify
the ring of missile bases which surround the
Soviet Union ... or for that matter the island
of Cuba?
Do we have one set of rules for one player
in this game of international roulette and another set for the other?
At the same time, has the U.S. not said it
will go to war to defend Berlin should it be
blockaded by the Soviets? So, then, is war not
justified upon the U.S. and upon us, for this
quarantine on Castro?
The U.S,. says it will sink ships which do
not allow themselves to be searched by self-
appointed American protectors of the world
good. But what would be the reaction to a
U.S. plane being shot down while enroute to a
blockaded Berlin?
If we assess the actions of the United States,
we are hardpressed to find reasons to justify
them.
But what can we do but follow along in the
footsteps of the giant who has made a wrong
turn?
Britain was first to fall into line. Then the
other Commonwealth countries began dutifully
supporting the move that the president took.
Canada, of course, eventually tagged along.
But the countries of the Western bloc, just
as the man on the street and the student on
campus are saying: "What can I do?" And they
are left with the obvious answer: nothing. So
they go along without protest.
When World War Three does come, it will
be helped along by the Britains, the Canadas
and the men in the street who haven't the
courage to call a spade a spade or a mistake a
mistake.
Yes, there is hope
There is hope for the university yet.
Despite the 'Back Jack,' 'Cuban Cigars Are
No Good Anyway,' and 'Prepare for the biggest
blast in history,' attitudes, a spark of sanity
flickers.
Dilemmas of the Cuban variety are the particular sphere'of university activity. Yet so
often, the university fails to maintain its position above the vulgar mass of frustration. • It
either ignores the world altogether, or descends into the fray, blindly brandishing the
arguments of the wretched extremes. In the
latter state, it denies the symbols which it is
supposed to represent.
Yesterday, it was a little different. Possibly
the gravity of the situation made it so. But for
once, maybe at last, the university made a
contribution to the world.
The meeting at the Cairn is not important
because of what was said there. It was important because it represented a public forum.
It was even more important because it represented a rational public forum, over and above
specific opinions.
It was important because it drew 5,000 students. Students who came not because it was
a place to eat their lunch, but because the topics discussed affected each and every one of
them.
. The importance of the issues prompted professors to set aside lectures and make each
classroom a forum.
This, then, is a university as a university
should be.
But the question arises: must we take th»
world to the brink of annihilation every time
the university must be made aware of its responsibilities? W.W.

Letters to the Editor
Lethargic rump
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
At last a pin has been
pricked into the lethargic
rump of Canadian politics.
Even if the pin is in the form
of a menacing if not concrete
fear.
The U.S. has put forward
an ultimatum to Russia. Good
show. This action has caused
various countries to perk up
to the fact that they have
problems besides the everyday government rigamarole.
Canadian politics now can
concentrate more on the
peoples it represents and the
country as a whole rather .than
on the dog-eat-dog program
it has been following since
last election—if not since
1957.
Perhaps the politicians, no
matter what party, can now
band together if a real crisis
is imminent, to protect the
people who voted for them as
best they  can.
The last few months has
seen a type of politics in which
party after party have yelled
non-confidence votes at the
Conservatives, talked up a
storm, and generally not done
a' damn thing in the way of
helping the real problems of
the country, mainly the mone
tary problem, the unemployment question and the welfare
of Canada's pepole.
Now, even if the threat of
war is imminent, these politicians will put away their
squabbles and turn to the true
business at hand—that is, the
welfare of the people and the
future of Canada's preservation.

Speech okay
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The meeting of Nigel Morgan on last Tuesday involved
much more than your reporter indicated. Were not the interesting and thought provoking comments on Diefenbaker's
austerity program, Bennett's
Columbia Treaty and the Communist Party program far
more significant than the
heckles of a minority?
I suggest that Ubyssey reporters should maintain the
atmosphere of intellectual freedom of our university by selecting material which represents
the significant issues discussed
by the speaker, rather than
material which creates sensational heading and biased reports.

Politics just a vicious cycle of cynicism, excuses
Ubyssey Staff Writer
Why must we be such cynics about politics? The
voters are cynical about the
idealism, integrity and unselfishness of their representatives and leaders, and the
statesmen are cynical about
the rationality and consistency of public opinion.
It is not that we are just
critical, because if we were
we would try to do something
about all the political deceit
and harmful expediency.
But we are not. We just
shrug them off as something
inevitable, as something that
we have to live with and
against which we can best
protect ourselves with the
well-tempered armour of cynicism.
•      •      •
Why is it that Premier
Bennett could campaign
against socialism as the
champion of free enterprise
and then take over the B.C.
Electric without any significant repercussions? Why is it
that Prime Minister Diefenbaker could blandly assure
us that there is nothing seriously wrong with the-Canadian economy and be reelected, while both employment and production were so
obviously scraping along the
bottom of a depression?
•      •      •
, In both cases most of the
voters who originally voted
these political cheaters into
office will probably say, "Oh
well, this is politics. They had
to do this to survive poitical-
ly. But I still like their policies." In fact they would not
even regard such instances of
deception of the public as
cheating, but merely as
clever moves in this complicated game of political chess.
On the other side of the
fence, the politicians say ta
themselves that what the
public doesn't know won't
hurt it. Indeed, if it did know
it would most likely react towards it in an irrational manner.
If this irrationality will
profit certain politicians,
these men will of course publicize the things that will
provoke it. In this instance
they will even paint the
issue in big, glaring colors.
They can also weave in a
few personal innuendos
against their political opponents to help their cases.
But if the voters are going to
react adversely, the politicians will regard it as a must
to hush up the controversy.
•      *      •
Why  in  the  world  do  we
have to have all  this deceit
and    cynicism    in    politics?
There are two basic reasons:
(1) the necessity to compromise in a diverse society and
(2) the institutionalized opposition among the different
political parties.
The first results in a situation   where   the   government
policies have to be justified
by exhibiting and exaggerating their dramatic advantages to the interests of the
different sectors of the electorate and by hushing up any
detrimental impacts.
The democratic party system, on the other hand, makes
politics partisan and packed
with prejudice. When attack
and fiefense become as accept,
able as it is in our political
system, it is not surprising
that attacks are launched
with exaggerations, distortions and fabrications, and
the defense is fortified with
false denials.
Have you ever heard of a
leader of the opposition who,
genuinely praised the government for a well-performed
exective action, or of a Prime
Minister who admitted that
the opposition's criticism was
justified?
•      •      *
On the one hand, the voters
will not concede that certain
compromises have to be made
to arrive at more or less all.
round acceptable national
policy, while on the other
hand, the electorate accepts
the opposition's role of an
obstructionist instead of a
judicious critic.
•      •      •
Why blame the politicians?
If they act with frankness
and sincerity, they inevitably
get shot down. In fact, individuals who are so inclined
usually avoid politics.
It is the voters who make
the statesman into the political manipulator that he is. It
the voters refused to put up
with all this deceit in politics, we might be able to
change the picture.
But the individual voter
feels himself powerless to do
anything about it and becomes cynical instead.
The vicious cycle of political cynicism is thus completed. Thursday, October 25, 1962

Profs examine Cuban crisis
Use of the military
isnt right action
Printed on this page are excerpts from speeches given
by professors at the Cuba foruroi meeting on Main Mall.
The speeches have been edited for space reasons only and
attempt to present the significant points of each speaker.
DR. NORMAN EPSTEIN           	
Applied Science
The most frightening thing
about the present crisis is the
powerlessness of ordinary people like you and me and the
millions of others throughout
the world to intervene in any
effective  manner.
We are all threatened with being blown off the map and we
* have no say whatsoever in the
decision to do so.
The governments of the world
have between them and in some
cases individually amassed the
most fantastic collection of nuclear, bacteriological and chemical weapons for killing and
over killing every human being
on the face of the earth.
The decision of the U.S. government more than 10 years ago
to start the production of H-
bombs was made, not only without consulting the British, Canadian, and Latin American satellites, but wthout ever asking
the American people themselves
if that is what they wanted their
national effort directed towards.
On important matters -then,
including matters of life and
death neither the U.S. nor our
country nor Britain can call it-
sef democratic — in such matters we differ little from Russia
or her satellites where decisions
to launch sputniks and build
multi-million-ruble missiles are
made exclusively at the top
level.
If we are lucky enough to
survive the present crisis, then
we must realize once and for all
that the governments of the
world, without exception, are
not to be trusted.
• •      *
'War is the health of the
state," said an American journalist, Randolph Bourne. Wars
will only stop when people refuse to cooperate with the state
and its war machine, when they
refuse to work in weapons industries, when they literally
over-run in their hundreds of
thousands the nuclear bases on
both sides of the iron curtain,
when students show the contempt for military training on
campuses which such training
deserves, when people literally
take the problem of war into
their own hands.
Several . . . organizations are
meeting in Amsterdam in two
weeks to found an Anti-War
International based on principles of non-violent but direct
opposition to armament and
war-making.
• •      •
The issue which this International is facing and which we
must all face was highlighted
by the Committee of 100 ,at one
of their trials last February.
In the courtroom a member
of the committee, conducting
his own defence, interrogated
Air Commander Magill of the
RAF as follows:
Question: Would you press
the button you know is going
to annihilate millions of people?
Answer: If the circumstances
demand it, I would.
This reply is exactly the reply given by Adolph Eichmann,
DR. NORMAN EPSTEIN
in  his words  and  in his  practice.
And what about you and me—
are we prepared to obey all
orders? Are we prepared to entrust our lives to people who
would obey any order?
DR.   DONALD   BROWN
Philosophy
... I must say I share Norman Epstein's feeling that, in
the immediate short run, we are
as individuals at the mercy of
the American and Russian governments.
Even direct appeal to the
Canadian government — trying
to provide it with political motives for adopting an independent role internationally—though
this is not to be neglected it is
not to be counted on.
Actually I think this particular crisis will pass, having
more or less served the political
purposes for which it was manufactured and that we will survive to be subjected to further
crises.
I   do   see   this   meeting   as   a
forum   in   which   to   say   two
things, and to say them to the
people for whom they are meant.
.  *      •      •
First: Whatever are our prospects as individuals or having
any influence on events—whether they are slim or good, short
or long run — they depend on
our maintaining among ourselves an informed and sane
climate of opinion. After all, it
is the very lack of this in the
States which seems one of the
immediate causes of the current danger.
Second: The members of the
university bear a special responsibility in Vancouver and
in B.C. , not only to keep informed and to think critically
about   the   issues   among   them
selves — which is the obvious
part of the academic job—but
to contribute to the public debate.
I do not mean, just about issues of armament and strategy.
To put these issues first is already to begin sleepwalking
on, under the American view of
things.
I mean, rather, the issues of
economic justice, social reform
and personal freedom which
underlie the others.
•      •      •
DR.  JAMES  FOULKS
Department  of  Pharmacology
. . . The situation in Cuba
dramatizes the need to establish a more uniform standard of
morality in world affairs.
Every step which either side
takes is justified in terms of its
own military security, but is
completely unacceptable when
taken by the other side.
Each side claims that the
other's actions are offensive
and aggressive, its own, defensive and protective. Thus, it is
| easy to accuse the other of
j falsehood, secrecy, and distortion, and to assume a mantle of
self-righteousness.
• • •
It is clear, that in the present
i crisis, the United States has
acted contrary to international
law and to the Charter of the
United Nations, and no labored
apologetics can conceal that
fact.
We may not like the situation
in Cuba, but it is difficult for
us to claim the right to deny
its free access to others, while
assuming our own unlimited
right of access, for instance, to
Berlin, and I believe that in
their hearts, whatever their
feelings toward Castro may be,
most Canadians will resent any
unilateral restrictions on our
own international rights as well
as those of others.
We must learn to demand the
same insight towards our own
policies which we require of
others. The hysteria which has
been   aroused   by   the   missile
DR. JAMES FOULKS
bases in Cuba may help us to
appreciate the anxiety felt for
people of the Soviet Union, with
respect to the resurgance of
military power in Western
Germany, and to the air and
missile bases which have ringed
their borders, and China's as
well, for more than a decade.
In fact, the restraint which
they have shown with respect
to missile bases, at least, in the
past, is reassuring in the present crisis, aJid is an example
from which we might learn
with profit . . .
•      •      •
DR.   R.  J.   ROWAN
Philosophy
The extremity of the U.S.
reaction to the missile buildup
in  Cuba  seems  all  out  of pro
portion to the military signifi-
cence. Let us concede that the
bases are there.
But this additional power of
Cuba does not to any significant extent alter the military
status quo. So it requires interpretation of why the U.S. would
resort to such extreme action
. . . There is an election coming
up in the U.S. ...
There has been a growing
hysteria over the actions of
Cuba. It is hard to say how
much pressure there is for ac-
ition, but Kennedy is subject to
jit.' This action will be followed
by other acts. It is evident the
U.S., when the chips are down,
are prepared to deal with situations with a frustrated military
response.
•      *      *
The actions of the past few
days are a form of an ultimatum. This only' aggravates w,hat
was already an intolerable situation. It is apparent that no
longer, if ever we could, can
we rely on unilateral military
action . . . Re-orientation of attitudes on the part of America
and the Soviet Union is needed
to resolve the  issues.
Now is not the time to engage in platitudes, sayings, and
cliches such as "it is time to
stand." It is the time for intelligent discussion to take place
h#e, and all over the world,
and we hope it can take place
in those sections of the world
that influence control over us
all.

A   KIND  OF   LOVING
A KIND OF LOVING is a British film in which the plot
is as concise as the demands of realistic technique allow: A
young English draftsman falls in love with Ingrid, a typist.
At times he waxes passionate, then "avoids all contact with
his sweetheart. When Ingrid tells Jim that she is to have a baby,
he agrees to marry her. After the marriage, the newly weds take
up lodgings with Ingrid's mother. Relations between Jim and
his mother-in-law quickly degenerate until, after a series of
personal crises, Jim walks out on wife and mother-in-law both.
The contrast between A Kind of Loving arid Last Year at
Marienbad, the film had seen just previously, was striking. The
two movies are as different as night and day, but in some ways,
they share common sympathies. In the French film, prime importance is placed on artistic cohesion, and the photography, as
one element in the cinematic montage, is painstakingly integrated with the other aspects of the movie.
The chief motivation of A Kind of Loving is psychological
veracity and photography plays a role analogous to that of the
photography in Marienbad: It is the instrument by means of
which we see into the hero's mind.
Boredom and frustration
There is a sequence of shots, for example, in a pub. Ingrid
is babbling contentedly, boring her lover to death. Jim's face is
expressionless, but through the camera we realize the frustration and regret that he is experiencing as he glances about the
room: first at a carefree group of bachelors nearby, then at a
middle-aged couple, looking sour and disgusted with one another. Both filrns exercise an economy of means with a sort of
cohesiveness, artistic in the case of Marienbad and psychological
in A Kind of Loving.
Unfortunately this synthesis is undermined by two disturbing tendencies. There is a marked change of direction in the
film During the first half, the audience's attention is drawn to
the fluctuations in the courtship itself.
In the second half of the film, our attention is focused on
the psychological metamorphosis in his wife, Ingrid, and on the
friction that keeps building up between Jim and his mother-in-
law. This is something for which the viewer is unprepared.
Crux of the plot
Not until the honeymoon is over is there a hint that the
vindictive attitude of Ingrid's mother will ruin the marriage.
Yet this is the crux of the plot and the most important of the
psychological-sociological entanglements.
The second disturbing element of the movie is Ingrid's
character development. One almost has the feeling that cuts
have been made in the movie where Ingrid undergoes the most
crucial changes. This is particularly evident immediately after
the honeymoon and again just before the last scene. By comparison, the hero enjoys a continuous and highly realistic development throughout the film.
Perhaps the film errs in packing so much into its first half.
The implications of this first three-quarters of an hour are
never really developed to the satisfaction of the viewer. In many
ways this film is a sociologist's treasure chest, accurate, well-
balanced, and superbly acted. —r. fraga

THIS IS ROBERT CREELEY,
and Virgil
is   dead   now   two   thousand
years, yet Hercules
and the Aeneid, yet all that
industrious wis.
dom lives in the way the
mountains
and the desert are waiting
for the heroes, and death also
can still propose the old
labours.
The above excerpt is from a
poem called "Heroes," included in FOR LOVE, POEMS
1950-1960. by Robert Creeley.
It is typical of the quality of the poetry you may
expect in this book.
As well as some short
stories, including a collection
entitled "The Gold Diggers,"
Creeley published between
1952 and 1959 seven small
books of verse, which Scrib-
ner's have now collected in
"For Love."
This book has been praised
highly without exception. The
Saturday Review refers to
the sting of the poetry. This
essential biting quality is evident in such a poem as "Ballad of the Despairing Husband," where with laconic
awareness Creeley satirizes
the feebleness of mankind in
general and himself in particular.
William - Carlos Williams
commends Creeley's subtle
feeling for the measure, obvious in all his poetry,  and
though many may not fully
understand the theory behind
the projective verse, still the
book is worth their reading.
For it includes many poems,
such as the following, called
"Love Comes Quietly," in
which even the most uninitiated cannot help but sense
the fine balance of the lines:
Love comes quietly,
finally, drops
about me, on me   '
in the old ways.
What did I know
thinking myself
able to go
alone all the way.
Here is such simplicity that
even the layman cannot help
but feel the beauty and passion in it. It is simplicity, as
in most of his poems, dependent upon a. contraction of
ideas, and clear and precisely
worded ' statements using
mainly mono,- or bisyllabic
words. The result is a musical
clarity, which is exactly what
Creeley is after:
"In any case, we live as we
can, each day another-there
is no use in counting. Nor
more, say, to live than what
there is, to live. I want the
poem as close to this fact as I
can bring it; or it, me."
In these poems is life and
experience, tough and tragic,
real and beautiful. Here is
a man who writes poems because is pleases him, and
writes them well enough to
please others.

Why have such poets as
Marianne Moore, George
Barker, Stephen Spender,
Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and
Robert Creeley come to read
at UBC.
Who invited them?
Who paid their fares and
fees?
• •     *
The answer to these and
many other questions about
visiting poets can be given by
the members of an organization which most students have
never heard of: The Vancouver
Poetry Centre. And at the
back of this organization is a
surreptitious committee of
students and faculty members
of the University, city librarians  and CBC producers.
It arranges not only noon
hour readings but also downtown readings for the Vancouver Public Library, or the
Vancouver Institute. Frequently, the poets appear on radio
or television, also.
• *      •
The Centre doesn't confine
its program to visitors. It also
sponsors readings by resident
poets such as Phyllis Webb,
Earle Birney, and Roy Daniells.
In addition certain poets studying at the University are frequently asked to read.
The Centre, like . everyone
else, is always broke. It lives
on grants from the Fine Arts
Committee of the University,
and the Student Special Events
Committee; of groups such as
the Koerner Foundation; and
on any other sums, it can lay
its hands on.
So far, the Centre has lived
for five healthy if precarious
years.

The UBC Players unveiled
an unpolished gem in the
Auditorium Oct. 17, with their
first reading of Arthur Miller's
"The  Crucible."
The reading, rough around
the edges and lacking in
polish, had nonetheless, a very
impressive overall effect.
• •      •
"The Crucible" is based on
the infamous Salem witchhunts, out of which Miller has
created a psychological tragedy revealing the malignancies
of vengeance and fear which
spread throughout a Puritanical New England town with a
hysterical fury and power.
• •      •
Scott Douglas, as John Proctor, gave a very moving performance marred only by occasional missed cues and hesitant delivery. He played the
" powerful individualist who
becomes inevitably and inextricably drawn into the crucible of greed and fear.
Cecil Berry projected excellently into the character of
Tituba the 'sorceress,' while
Michael  Fullerton,  Bill  Dyer,
and myriad minor players
showed varying degrees of: uncertainty  and  shallowness.-
• •      •
Miller's script probably
saved the life of the reading.
Scenes of moderate emotions,
and a business-like purpose
appeared to leave the players
as well as the audience relatively indifferent. Yet before
either faction had time to get
thoroughly bored, Miller would
whisk everyone away in a
burst of emotional enthusiasm
in which the players would,
shine and the audience sit up.
• •      •
The production was staged
very effectively and smoothly,
while the stark, unchanging
backdrop provided a sinisterly
beautiful contrast to the complex volatile emotional situation of the play.
Although I doubt "The Crucible" will be held over, Miller
and the UBC Players have
combined to produce good entertainment for a relatively
sympathetic audience.

THE POET
THE     UBYSSEY
Page 5
jnized poet, past editor
f "The Divers Press, world
w at UBC teaching Eng.
What of Robert Creeley the
Man? Everywhere, his experiences, and the compassion resulting from them, are
apparent in his work.
After fairly conventional
schooling in New Hampshire,
he attended a variety of institutions for higher education: Harvard, the University
of New Mexico where he obtained his Master's degree,
and Black Mountain College,
North Carolina.
His experience in travel
is as variegated as his education—India and Burma (wita
the American Field Servce);
France; Spain, where he started The Divers Press; Guatemala, where he taught; and
widely, the United States.
While at Black Mountain
College, he edited the Black
Mountain Review, which in-
cuded his own work and that
of Robert Duncan, Paul
Blackburn, Denise Levertov,
and others. His experience at
Black Mountain gave him a
meaningful association with
the other writers studying
there.
These factors contributed
obviously to a particularly
wide version and catholic
sense of view which is felt
always behind the poems.
This was recognized in 1960
when he was awarded the
D. H. Lawrence Fellowship.
His breadth of interest in
literature is not restricted to
verse and short fiction, for
he is presently at work on his
first novel, "The Gold Diggers," to be published next
year.
One of the most important
aspects of Creeley's poetry is
the oral quality, the natural
ease with which it is read. He
has read his own work (last
week) at the Poetry Centre in
San Francisco, and previously
in the Living Theatre'in New
York, in Chicago, and has recorded for the Library of
Congress in Washington, D.C.
An album of his own reading
will be presented by a new
recording company some time
in 1963.
In February of last year,
he was invited to speak here
at the Festival of Contemporary Arts, where he was received enthusiastically. With
the encouragement of Dr.
Warren Tallman, of the English department, he accepted
a position on the UBC teaching staff, where he now instructs English 100, 200, and
the Creative Writing course,
English 202.
The fact that Robert Cree-'
ley is present on our campus
illustrates the new wave of
almost hysterical enthusiasm
for the contemporary literary
forms, and reflects the originality and high caibre of much
of the work being done here
by our own writers.

The Hindemiih Sonate No.

Turini's presentation of the

harsh but the work progressed,
showing tremendous dynamic

seen in the first half of the
program.
The linear motion of the
work was maintained well and
by the third section the
melodies had lost their edge
of harshness and assumed a
rounded lyrical surface.
Chromatic passages in the
fourth section were slurred
but the broad chordal progressions were firm without having the harshness so often

of the program. There was in

The performance as a whole
showed a young man with tremendous sustained stamina,
power and force which, although desirable qualities for
the concert stage, at times
overuled his musical sense and
created harshness. Turini's

There was a driving force in
the opening of the Mephisto

ability to play individual notes
with glissando speed.
His rhythmic control was

were adequately captured.
His right foot was heavy on

and the first half of the program seemed to lack dynamic
range. However, the dynamic

CAPANEUS   RIDES AGAIN
Once" upon a time there was a large university on the
west coast of a large country called Beaveria, and the people
of the university prided themselves upon being among the
intellectual elite of their land. Not the usual dupes of the
moneygrubbing power elite, these people. They were college
students, seekers for truth, exercisers of the more subtle intellectual faculties.
Accordingly they established various outlets for their
cerebral and esthetic powers. In one field, often called writing, they published a literary magazine called Blackbird and
a weekly spread in their newspaper, said spread dedicated to
criticism of the arts and entertainment. Everyone was proud
to be so intellectual. Everyone stood in a circle and patted
backs.
We belong to a mutual. . .
But there was another group activity at the university
that distrusted all this arty farty business. They wore uniforms
made up chiefly of blue blazers and tabcollar shirts, and held
secret meetings in a small room where beer was served from
handy leather dispensers.
The members of this group knew one another very well,
but hardly anyone else. on the campus knew who they were.
Hence they decided they should do' something outside the
lounge, and get their names in the paper. They were all named
Brad or Jeff. Collectively they were known only by the code-
name AMS or some other set of initials.
They decided that they would become famous by suppressing the intellectuals and the writers. After all, some of
the young philosophers and thinkers were acting as if their
kind had beg/un the idea of a university. It was an insult to
the great Greek moneylender, and insurance investor, Brad
Brockitus.
Bye-Bye, Blackbird
So they sent their blueblazered emissary Brad Loppet to
the editor of Blackbird and asked him if the magazine was
making any sales. Some, said the editor. As much as US News
And World Report? asked Loppet. No, said the editor. Then
there will be no Blackbird this year, said Loppet. Bye bye,
said the editor. Incidentally, how would you like to buy a
subscription to USNAWK?, said Loppet, taking an IBM card
from his pocket.
Then Loppet went to the newspaper and asked them if
their critics page was making any money. The editor said some
people found value in other things besides money. That's a
pretty stupid idea for a college student to think, said Loppet,
fingering his IBM cards. Many people read the critics page,
said the editor. Not in Brad Hall, said Loppet.
Well, we could send some of our freshhmen reporters
over to teach the natives to read—sort of a peace corps, said
the editor. Whaddya some kinda commie, said Loppet.
No, I'm a student of literature, said the editor. How much
can you sell literature for? asked Loppet. I can offer $1.|97
for twenty-seven weeks. I'm not selling anything, said the
editor. What the hell, you call yourself a collitch student? said
Loppet?
Straight descendent from Brad Tacitus, said the editor.

Seven hundred Fort Camp
residents risk their lives at
least four times daily on Marine Drive.
Each morning between-8 and
8:30, Fort Camp residents must
dodge heavy traffic to get to
their classes.
Minor accidents have occur-
ed where cars have suddenly
slammed on their brakes.
Several students have reported nearly being hit.
The acute danger arose when
traffic going to A and C lots
was re-routed from Chancellor and University Boulevards
to Marine Drive.-
•      *      •
Don Charlton, Eng. I, witnessed an accident in which
three cars were involved. The
first car slammed on its brakes
to avoid hitting a pedestrian
crossing the road. The second
and third cars hit the first
from behind.
Gerd Schmidt, another Fort
Camp resident, reported being
caught in the middle of Marine
Drive with cars going both
ways. None would stop to let
him cross, he said.
Despite insistent demands
by Fort Camp council for crosswalks and speed reduction
signs, nothing has been done to
alleviate the situation, residents told The Ubyssey.
On two occasions, irate students have taken matters into
their own hands.

AN APOLOGY
The Advertising Department of the Publications Office would like to-
tender its apologies to the students, and to the advertisers in Tuesday's edition
of The Ubyssey for the unjustified comments of that edition's editorial.
Specifically, we must apologize to Philips Appliances Limited and to
Finn's Clothier's Ltd. for the unwarranted and unethical disclosures made by
the editorial staff of this "newspaper." Referring to a clients advertising as
". . . that Philips ad down in the corner . . ." and ". . . that clothing ad in
the other corner . . ." is, we believe, a breach of ethical comment for a news-,
paper. These firms have seen fit to display their products before the students
at this University with the hope that students will take an, interest in them. It
should be realized, here and now, that these firms contribute to this newspaper and without their confidence in the students at UBC, the Ubyssey would,
be reduced to a weekly two page newspaper. Approximately 75% of the
funds required to print this newspaper are derived from advertising. To this
department it appears that the editorial staff of The Ubyssey does not appreciate this confidence.
It is hoped, therefore, that students will continue, as they have in the past,
to support the advertisers in this newspaper to the same degree that the advertisers help support this newspaper.

Complying with official
measurements, the students
painted in their own crosswalk. But they used water-
soluble paint and rain that
night washed it away.
Tuesday morning students
strung a two-inch thick rope
across Marine Drive, halting
traffic as a protest against the
inaction.
Signs reading "We want our
crosswalk now," were displayed.
*      •      *
One vehicle broke through
the human blockade and
knocked down 10 students. No
one was seriously injured.
RCMP, who arrived on the
scene a few minutes later, directed traffic until the rush
hour ended.
Marine Drive comes under
the jurisdiction of the provincial department of highways.
Requests on the part of University officials have so far
failed to bring any action.
"For the past five or six
weeks Fort Camp Students
have had verbal promises of
safety  improvements  on Mar
ine Drive in front of Fort
Camp," said Jeff McAllister,
president of Fort Camp.
"These promises were made
by the housing administration,
the traffic department and the
RCMP," he said.
"To date nothing has been
done. And unless action is
taken soon someone is going to
be killed or seriously injured."
.    *      •      •
This is not the first time the"
problem   has   arisen.   Requests
for   a   crosswalk   were   first
made in 1952.
"The ultimate solution would'
be  an  underpass,"   McAllister
said.

Education or insemination
U.S. genetics expert warns
By ROBB WATT
Mankind must be educated
if it is to control overpopulation, a genetics expert warned
Wednesday.
Unless we resort to strictly-
directed breeding of human beings, we must leave the problem of overpopulation to individuals, said Dr. Michael Ler--
ner.
"These individuals must be
immediately    enlightened    on
the subject of genetics."
SPERM BANK
Already artificial insemina-
' tion in the form of sperm
banks has been proposed as a
possible solution in which only
intelligent, fit males would
produce progeny, he said.
But Dr! Lerner said he could
I not agree with artificial insemination   because   it   infringes
upon the freedom of mankind.
However,  if individuals are
not capable of controlling the
situation, some outside control
must be necessary, he added.
FUNCTION OF GENES
Speaking on "Population
Genetics of Man," Dr. Lerner
explained the function of
*-genes in the heredity and development of individuals, laying particular stress on gene
mutation.
Mutations are self controlling in the long run, he said,
refuting a school of thought
which contends the treatment
of genetic diseases will pro-
, duce a race of cripples and
idiots.
'    "We have protected the unfit since the days of cave-men,
and we appear to be no worse
off," he said.
Genetic erosion caused by
mutations is not important
compared to the problem of
overpopulation, he said.
"In 1967 there will be four
billion people on earth at the
present rate of production,"
he said. "And in 1,000 years
there will be one person per
square yard."
A graduate of UBC, Dr. Lerner is head of the department
of genetics at the University
of California, and is presently
conducting research in mutation types.
He was sponsored by the
Leo and Thea Koerner Foundation at UBC, and will receive
an honorary doctorate at Friday's convocation.

UBC has added its voice to
the criticisms of student riots
at the University of Mississippi over the admission of
Negro James Meredith.
Student council passed a
motion Monday "deploring
the attitude of those who condoned and participated in
segregationist policies" at Ole
Miss.
The resolution will be sent
special delivery to the University of Mississippi.
UBC students will have to
eligibility to vote in the Point
Students have received letters
from K. L. Morton, provincial
registrar of voters, requiring
them to appear at a Court of
Revision.
Applications refused
The letter states that students
who fail to appear may have
their application refused.
Morton said some applicants
may have tried to falsify the
documents.
"The student must give due
reason why he should be on the
voters list," he said.
He noted that the Election act
puts the onus on the voter  to
prove his eligibility.
NO  EXCEPTION
"The campus is no exception.
We will decide on an individual
basis," he said.
If Point Grey is considered his
permanent home, the student
will be permitted to vote, said
Morton.
appear in court to prove their
Grey provincial by-election.
Sorry we goofed;
Stewart misquoted
The Ubyssey Tuesday incorrectly reported student council president Doug Stewart
as criticizing last week's student demonstration against
the closure of the Hotel Georgia's pub.
Stewart said he meant only
that he felt any action by
student council on the matter
would be futile.
