TREE COMES DOWN . . . right into brawl
Brawl a draw
Engineers win
logging contest
By LORNE MALLIN
An engineer tree-cutting contest turned into a wild brawl
Wednesday noon.
Auto smash
names released
Police Wednesday released the names of persons involved in the two-car collision Saturday on University Boulevard.
They were graduate student Purushotham Kanniah
Salla and Timothy McMullen,
Ed. III.
Bad guess
torpedoes
extra cash
Lower - than - expected enrolment has torpedoed second-
term AMS supplementary grants.
Full-fee-paying   student   en
rolment fell 400 short of the
estimated 15,000 and cut $5,-
500 off the $435,000 AMS budget, AMS treasurer Kyle Mitchell said Tuesday.
He said student groups will
thus receive per capita levies
based on  14,600 students.
GRANTS IMPOSSIBLE
This means supplementary
grants to clubs, committees
and undergraduate societies
are impossible, he said.
"Supplementary grants to
AMS organizations are the
first to go when we have to
cut corners," Mitchell said.
FIRST VICTIM
First vietim of the imposed
AMS austerity program could
be the annual Frosh newspaper, The Odyssey.
A Frosh request for a $300
supplementary grant has been
deferred by AMS finance committee to council for decision
Monday.
Mitchell said the loss of expected revenue leaves the AMS
a projected operating budget
margin of $3,087.
HALF SPENT
More than half the $20,000
AMS operating budget margin
was spent last year on supplementary grants, sending rowers to the Tokyo Olympics, and
increased Canadian Union of
Student fees.
The CUS fees were raised
from 42 to 60 cents a student,
costing the AMS an extra
$3,000.
The AMS lost $21,000 last
year, leaving a current surplus
of  $28,000.

president
It's a three-way race for
AMS president so far, even
though the starting gun doesn't
fire until 4 p.m. today.
AMS second vice-president
Byron Hender, NDP club president Everett Northup and philosophy student Wulfing von
Schleinitz have posted presidential nomination forms.
Hender has begun a poster
campaign already.
"I am running as an independent," Hender said Wednesday. "However, I feel the
experience I have had in my
previous years on council will
enable me to do the job."
Northup said he will begin
his campaign Wednesday night
with a rally in the Lower Mall
Common Block.
He is a member of the B.C.
Student Federation although
he said he is not a candidate
for the organization.
"I am running strictly on
my own," he said.
Von Schleinitz said he began
his campaign Tuesday.
"I am running as an independent against the present
AMS set-up," he said.

Glass was broken in the
Frosh office door when engineers tried to stuff the remains
of their tree inside.
Small fist fights and scuffles
broke out between engineers
and Frosh in the office.
Earlier, the engineers felled
a 30-foot tree in the library
gardens.
As a result, they won the
tree-cutting contest they themselves initiated.
Object of the contest was to
find a 30-foot tree, cut it down
and bring it back to the square
in front of the library.
While Sciencemen and Forestry contestants hustled out
of the area to find their trees,
the engineers were content to
cut one down on university
property.

Deflate tires
Tickets posted
Vigilantes battling parking fouls
By  CAROLE MUNROE
If the university patrol
doesn't do the job, do it yourself.
That's the philosophy of a
group at the Anglican Theological College who call
themselves the ATC Vigilantes.
•    •    •
They claim cars are parking in the ATC lot illegally,
some with fake ATC stickers.
So they're ticketing cars
and deflating tires in retaliation.
A committee member, who
refused   to   be   named,   said

VIGILANTES . .   Vrike again
they phoned the university
patrol on many occasions but
nothing happened.
"In spite of our calls the
last time the patrol came was
two months ago," the student
said. "That night they gave
out 13 tickets."
•    •    •
Now students are issuing
warning tickets themselves
to all illegally parked cars.
And they're backing the
warnings by flattening tires,
blocking in the cars, or crossing wires.

A wild melee between frosh
and engineers followed.
Near tears, Frosh president
Kim Campbell had a few
words with the engineers.
"You'll pay for this one,
boy," she said.
A building and grounds
truck had to come to remove
the tree.
"We usually send a bill to

"They will speak about
South Africa and the international implications of apartheid," he said.
In a letter to undergraduate
society presidents Adija also
expressed concern over an incident where UBC delegates
to the Canadian Union of Students September conference
walked out of a caucus which
supported an anti-apartheid
policy.
The delegates said CUS was

IDEAS
at
LARGE
By DOUG   HALVERSON
Over a cup of coffee at supper the other night, my room
mate and his girl friend informed me I was writing for a
crumby scandal sheet.
"Your cheap rag only reports the bad news and scandals — and to top it all, it
libels everybody it writes
about."
"No no," I cried, "You're
breaking my heart! We don't
libel, we just make the news
bright."
"Have you made our poor
housing director, Mr. Haar,
bright?" they asked. "Do you
think poor Mr. Haar can help
it if the nasty government
doesn't give him the money to
replace Fort Camp?
• •    •
"Have you ever really tried
to talk to Mr. Haar?" they attacked.
"But Mr. Haar's always
busy. Mr. Haar's always out.
His secretary doesn't like
me," I replied feebly.
"Did you ever try to like
Mr. Haar's secretary?" they
countered.
"But Mr. Haar wouldn't
stand for that," I cried defensively.
"Let's out with it," they
demanded. "Mr. Haar is the
least of your libels. What
about that poor drunk porter
and those drug addicts—did
you have to report on them?"
"But the job of the paper is
to report these things so the
public can protect itself
against them," I said, figuring
I'd gained some ground again.
• •    •
"It's not the job of the
paper to ruin people's lives
and lose their jobs for them
even if they do drink a little,
or take pots. Couldn't you
have buried the story?" they
said.
"And then what would
your news be?" I asked.
"Oh, you could write about
the good things that happen."
"Like little Johnny Smith
in Education I just got 83 per
cent in Flutophone 103," I
snarled back.
"Yeh, yeh," they chortled
gleefully, "that's it . . . show
the outside people who read
the paper the good side of
campus life. Bury the bad
stuff. Report on the student
council and things like that."
• •    *
"Report on the council!" I
shrieked, "We have terrific
coverage of council. And
what about our coverage on
the president's report, and on
the B.C. Student Federation-
AMS disputes. And what
about our Bains versus McAfee coverage," I screamed
hysterically.
"Oh," they said, "We never
read that stuff, I guess its
okay though."
"Actually we never read
the paper at all any more;
just the ads."
"Oh," I said.
"In fact, if they had to
pay for it, nobody would read
The Ubyssey," they said.
But I didn't hear them. I
was too busy sobbing in my
cold salty coffee.

Lukewarm fight defrosts
frozen academic funds
By ROBBI WEST
Ubyssey Council Reporter
Academic Activities funds
were defrosted Monday night
but they may be re-frozen.
AMS council defrosted the
committee's funds after a half-
hour kerfuffle between AAC
Chairman Mike Coleman and
council.
AAC funds were frozen following a Vic College complaint about the joint symposium held here Jan. 15-17.
Coleman appeared before
council   to   answer   a   censure
motion arising from a Victoria
letter.
CONDEMNATION
(The condemnation came in
a letter from AMS vice-president Rolli Cacchioni who
called UBC's hospitality "niggardly".
There were also complaints
regarding inter-faction fighting among UBC delegates.)
"Most of the complaints had
nothing to do with the committee itself," Coleman told
council. "The buses were late,
yes," he said. "But that was
Mairs Transport's fault, not
ours. And because the buses
were   late,   the  residence  por
ters left and when the delegates finally arrived the porters returned but they forgot
the   information   booklets."
Coleman said there were no
complaints about the inter-
faction fighting.
"We have had minor complaints about administration
and nothing else," he said.
PERSONAL COMMENT
Second vice-president Byron
Hender said: "I have since
been talking to a Vic College
student and apparently Rolli
wrote the letter on his own."
"There is no copy of his letter in their AMS files which
means it was not an official
condemnation but a personal
comment,"  he said.
At   this  point   Coleman   revealed that C&cchioni had not
been present for most  of the
symposium.
FURTHER   INFORMATION
Frosh president Kim Campbell then asked council to rescind its censure motion because it had censured the AAC
on the opinion of one man who
was not even present at Saturday's meeting.
Council then moved to unfreeze AAC's funds  until  fur
ther   information   can   be   obtained.
Council also invited symposium chairman Hardial Bains
to the Council meeting to answer the censure charges.

Mike blasts world
Low-cost labor
Editor, The Ubyssey:
It seems only fair that, at a university, we should
anticipate answers appropriate to the questions raised
and critical evaluations of the relationships between
cause and effect. It should also be within our capacities
to generate some sense of responsibility for the problems and trials of others.
I find none of these desiderata satisfied by the
responses of Miss Blair or Mr. Hacking—assuming they
have been correctly reported—in Friday's Ubyssey regarding their answers to "Tuum Est".
To wit: Miss Blair's reply that "temporary help is
the first to be laid off" does not meet the criticism (That
no warning of such layoff is given).
Mr. Hacking's reply that the students' rights under
the Department of Labor laws have not been examined
"because of the merit of co-operation" does not imply
the kind of reciprocity which the term "co-operation"
demands (the fact that, for 15 years, the departments
concerned have been able to obtain part-time workers
from the Personal Office who were willing to present
themselves for less than two hours' work at a time does
not increase the acceptability of the practice).
Further, the implication that the present publicity
will encourage a successful search by various departments to hire off-campus help for one or two hours per
day is positively absurd.
There are many damn fools around, but none is
likely to trek to UBC to work two hours per day! And
the likelihood of getting 300 or more is even more
remote.
It should be recognized that students are a source
of convenient, part-time, low-cost labor, but that they
deserve consideration — and more than that, honesty.
Fifteen years ago, when I was working part-time on
campus to meet expenses, it seemed understood that
co-operation was a two-way street and careful reasoning
an objective for all, including employers. In the absence
of evidence of such conditions, the students of my time
would probably have organized a walkout.
W. E. Razzell,
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR
OF MICROBIOLOGY
Prof. Razzell's letter to the editor was received with
surprise and pleasure. It deals with a touchy campus
labor problem in perhaps a fairer and less impassioned
manner than The Ubyssey would.
It also shows a rare interest in, and respect for,
the student and his immediate problems. Few professors
share this concern, or if they do are willing to express
it publicly.

Editor. The Ubyssey:
Bryan (self-constituted campus iconoclast) Belfont strikes
again, in a blazing hail of
vituperative verbosity.
This whole furor over the
joint UBC-Victoria symposium has all the aspects of the
classic "tempest in a teapot".
A few examples should suffice:
(1) R o 11 i Cacchioni was
supposed to chair the Saturday night panel discussion in
question. He didn't show up.
The panel degenerated into
vociferous nit-picking. R o 11 i
subsequently "blasts" the
committee.
(2) McAfee attended the
Saturday night session and
left with a justifiably distorted view that the whole weekend was a shambles. He did
not bother checking out the
Friday night or Saturday
morning sessions, which Dr.
Belshaw assures me were of
good quality. Students' Council, in its infinite wisdom
and on Roger's say-so, censured the Academic Activities
Committee and froze the budget, pending AAC's justification. Fine example of a kangaroo court — guilty until
proven innocent. It's good to
see such awareness of democratic values on our very
own Students' Council.
(3) The frozen budget (cold
cash?) is a purely academic
matter  (pardon  the  puns).
AAC has had a supplementary request pending from
AMS for four months. Our
deficit-financed programs are
now finished. The remainder
are slated to break even financially.
The fuss has several aspects
which smack of collusion and
chicanery on both sides. It's
certainly pleasant to find Mr.
Belfont adding such constructive criticism by "protesting",
"slamming", and "attacking".

About a thousand books and
$80 through the sale of book

This is enough for three or
four shipments of books to
developing universities overseas.
This book collection and
shipping is a permanent project of the WUS Committee,
and we will be pleased to receive university level books
at any time throughout the
year. Books may be left at the
WUS office, Brock Extension

Ironic yearbook
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The last week of Totem discount sales is here. Judging
from the number of copies
sold to date, one might say
this could be the last of
Totem.
Surely it's not because of
the price.
It is because all the soapboxers, ready to howl at oil
slicks on their coffee, won't
howl a bit for Totem.
As an answer, why doesn't
each club, fraternity or undergrad society, instead of
trying to sell to the general
public, concentrate on its
own  membership?
The irony of the situation is
that in four years, when Totem is dead and buried, some
bright yok will say what this
university REALLY needs is
a  campus yearbook.
Why   wait   four   years   to
realize the asset we have now
and are in danger of losing?

Editor,  The  Ubyssey:
The UBC Liberals note
with interest the joint announcement of the president
of the Quebec wing of the
Social Credit party on campus and the president of the
Conservative party on campus that they have merged
to run a joint campaign in
this year's model. We are
astonished at the annunce-
ment because it is a surprising position for the Conservative club to take.
Their provincial leader, the
former minister of public
works, the Hon. E. Davy Fulton, left federal politics to
do battle with the B.C. wing
of the Social Credit Party,
and made a valiant effort in
the last provincial election
explaining in great detail the
corrupt practices and false
philosophy of   Social   Credit.
In a campaign pamphlet entitled The Black Mark pub-
1 i s h e d by the Progressive
Conservative Campaign Com-
m i 11 e e they said of Social
Credit ". . . so far removed
from common justice (that it)
fails to see right from
wrong.".
In the light of this effort,
we are shocked to see the
Conservative Party on campus repudiate and desert Mr.
Fulton and his cause. Surely
they cannot reconcile Mr.
Fulton and the Quebec brand
of Social Credit!
It seems to have become a
Conservative Party tradition
to forsake your leader and
undermine his cause. We expected this from Social Credit
expediency but are surprised
at Conservative tactics.
We offer our Sympathy to
Mr. Fulton but the explanations will have to come from
his campus Deserters.

ARGUMENT
The front guard blackguards

PF  Two
This is the first of two
articles by PF film critics
Graham Olney and Ed
Hutchings on the a v a n t
garde in American films.
This week, Olney.
By GRAHAM OLNEY
SOME years ago I was introduced to the American experimentalists—Maya Deren
to be specific. My first reaction was "What fun!" After
a dearth of dreary Hollywood spectacles, this completely non - formalist approach to film was most exciting. Black - clothed girls
crawling through driftwood
then up onto a perfectly set
dinner table made me forget
the usual refreshment. This
new to me) approach to film
whetted the appetite something akin to the first embrace with a delicious young
damsel. However, after seeing dozens of films similar
in content, my affection for
experimental film waned.
Years have passed. I have
grown older and somewhat
wiser but not so the American Avant-Garde. That lonely black-clothed girl is still
crawling, crawling . . . Sometimes it is a morose "dark"
figure running, running, running . . . Which brings us to
a strange characteristic of
the AAG—the Mystique of
the Wandering Hero. But,
before we start tearing the
American Avant-Garde apart
for, among other things, their
lack of purpose or direction,
let us go back to first principles in order to make the
slashing sharper and deeper.
As soon as movies got out
of the snapshot stage, there
was a lot of stuff which was
main-stream around the turn
of the century which would
be considered avant-garde today. Most of the films of this
kind were by Melies who was
definitely not a revolutionary but a professional magician. Towards 1920 the Germans made a number of
"Gothic" films (the best
known is Cabinet of Dr. Cali-
gari) in which most of the
idioms of the personal filmmakers like Deren, were
established. Towards the end
of the 1920s the Germans
(notably Ruttman who made
the first part of Disney's Fantasia) produced some theorists of abstract film. From
this as well as avant-garde
painting, comes nearly all
modern abstract film. Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel in
Le Chien Andalu added the
typical revolt mood to films
although earlier films like
Entracte weren't so nasty.
Later on, this revolt became manifest in a typical
wandering man. Somehow
most of the contemporary
Avant - Gardeists have the
idea that you can show revolt through introverted pity
—the wandering man always
seems sorry for himself. A
film which embodies all the
principles of the Mystique of
the Wandering Hero is The
Last Man in which the protagonist, probably the maker
of the film, walks along with
his back to the camera and
... well just walks. The mood
is heavy and moroseful. The
music score is slow cadence
dummmm - da - dum stuff
straight out of silent movie
melodrama with the organ
or piano heaving plaintive
sighs. They still make noises
like this at the Museum of
Modern Art when the villain
ties Pauline to the railroad
tracks. If it wasn't for the
title and its self-contained
comment one would suspect
the cameraman had followed some bored bystander
who had tired of the proceedings of the company and had
decided to go home.
Two examples in the professional film will show that
the device of spotlighting
one character and following
him from his subjective point
of view is not a completely
hopeless device. Hiroshima
Mon Amour is the subjective
story of a woman trying to
find herself, in which Renais
includes the standard French
themes of time and memory.
Bergman's approach to Wild
Strawberries was essentially
the same—a man recalls past
life through association of
present with past. But the
point here is that the. device
works for Renais and Bergman whereas in a hundred
AAG films I doubt there
would be one which would
evoke any feeling but pity
for the filmmaker.
This is not experimental
film. This is not the new
form. If you attend the Festival of Contemporary Arts

you will probably find an-

the Wandering Hero since
films like these comprise
about three-quarters of the
American Avant-Garde film.
•   •   •
Experimentalists revolt —
this is only fundamental.
Avant Gardeists, by definition, have to be 'forerunners
in something. The question
is, then, what is the AAG
revolting against and are
they, in fact, creating new
forms, techniques and content which are significant?
The answer to that question
is probably no.
The American Avant-Garde
(the hard core of these mediocre artists huddle in collective self-pity under the
name The New American
Cinema. Someone said there
Wasn't anything particularly
new, American or cinematic
about them. True.) is probably about 30 years behind
the mainstream of American
film Hollywood. Most of
their work is essentially remaking Le Chien Andalu
(1929). Their only revolt is
a revolt against technique—
against the professionalism
of Hollywood's movies. No
matter what one's complaints
against Hollywood, the technical calibre of its films is
almost perfect. This revolt
against technique explains
Ron Rice's use of 16 mm.
gun camera stock in Flower
Thief and the wild pointless
camera wavings of almost
every AAG film.
The revolt is simply for
the sake of revolting. If
Hollywood movies are professional then AAG movies
will be amateurish say the
New American Cinema  dis
ciples. If you think this attitude is childish you are perfectly correct. (It is heartening to note that New American Cinema audiences are
sparse and few. The NAC
has a limited public and for
good reason. Andy Warhol's
film Sleep runs eight (count
'em) eight hours. Brakhage's
Dog Star Man runs, I think,
four hours. The only ones
able to watch comic epics
like these are the NAC members themselves.) The films
are way-out but not new at
all.
• •    •
I am not suggesting the
American Avant- Garde is
hopeless. I do however consider the New American Cinema ot be a lost cause. Kenneth Anger's Inauguration
of the Pleasure Dome is full
of promise. Bruce Connor's
works stay away from the
personal despair of NAC.
Canada, even, has good experimentalists — Arthur Lip-
sett (Very Nice, Very Nice,
21-87 and Free Fall) and
conservative Norman McLaren.
Bruce Connor will show
his films for the Festival of
Contemporary Arts Feb. 2
and Kenneth Anger's new
film, Scorpio Rising will be
shown Feb. 8. These will be
chances to see that rarest of
animals, the significant
Avant-Garde  film.
• •    •
Lastly, I would respectfully suggest, in view of
their chronic hindsight, that
the American Avant-Garde
be renamed the American
Apres-Garde. Connor, Anger
and other true revolutionists
could then be known as The
Experimentalists. BOOKS
Berton blast out in all
directions — everybody
should be happy including
the church that invited
him to strike the first blow
By JIM LOTZ
PIERRE BERTON'S new
book promises to be the
most satisfactory publication
on religion in many a year.
Mr. Berton will be satisfied; his reputation as an
iconoclast and as an outspoken controversialist will
be strengthened. McClelland
and Stewart, the publishers,
will be satisfied; the book
will receive a great deal of
free publicity from many
ministers throughout the
land, and should net them
a tidy profit.
The Anglican Church,
which sponsored the book,
will be satisfied; its leaders
can assert that they have
submitted themselves and
their church to a public penance, from which all will
arise refreshed and strength-
e n e d . Clergymen throughout the country will be satisfied; the book solves their
sermon problem for the
coming year, and will give
them plenty of straw men to
tilt against for some time to
come.
Atheists, agnostics, and
others opposed to organized
religion will be satisfied;
here they see in print their
own sentiments, long suppressed or only feebly voiced
in the past.
Of course, there is going
to be *one hell of a row over
this book in Canada. Already the theological artillery is being pushed into
line (a counterblast to the
book is in course of preparation); soon the religious
trumpets shall sound, and
the faithful will gird up
their loins. All will be ready
for the assault of the phillis-
tines, and soon we shall hear
the sounds of battle, as the
religious and the anti-religious clash in personal and
public debate.
The book will be damned
and praised, reviled and
hailed. It may even be burnt
in some of the remoter
parts of the Bible Belt.
And yet there seems to
be something rather odd
about the book — the combined work of a crusading
journalist, a religious sect,
and a commercial publishing
house. In it, Mr. Berton accuses the Church of failing
to make use of the modern
arts of communication. And
yet the Anglican Church
sought out Mr. Berton and
asked him to write this book
— surely an indication of
their mastery of the media.
The book has a singular
advantage. It does not have
to be read in full—the chapter headings tell the tale.
Three parts, headed "The
Abdication of Leadership",
"The Tyranny of the Relig-
i o u s Establishment", and
"The Failure of Communication" are each subdivided
into five chapters with titles
like "What Color was
Christ?", "The Ecclesiastical
Caste System", and "The
P r e t e n s ions to Absolute
Rightness".
Fifteen minutes casual
browsing should suffice to
imbibe Mr. Berton's message. He blasts the attitude
of the Church towards war,
sex, automation, business,
race problems, his famous
article in Macleans, the CBC
play "The Open Grave",
among other things.
He claims that the modern church is out of step
with the 20th Century, that
it is apathetic, when not
downright reactionary. He
cites many examples of the
Church's lack of understanding of the problems of
the "New Age".
The writing in the book
rises to great heights at
times; without doubt -Mr.
Berton is one of Canada's
ablest writers. He has a real
talent for communicating his
ideas, his enthusiasms, his
opinions, and his prejudices
to the reader.
And yet the book left me
strangely unsatisfied and
unmoved after reading it.
Mr. Berton has done an excellent job of flailing\Jhe
church, and has demons
strated its inability to grapple with modern problems.
In another age he would
doubtless have been burnt as
a heretic and later canonized as a saint. But he would
have been a very minor
heretic and saint.
For one thing, too many
of his arguments lend themselves to easy refutation.
Has some preacher thundered against sex? Then here
we have an advanced clergy
man who says that sex is a
good thing!
Have the southern clergymen supported racial segregation, even in the churches?
Then look at the work of
the Reverend Martin Luther
King!
In the months to come,
such arguments will be
widely used. They soon degenerate into vast games of
semantic chess, with each
side trying to checkmate the
other with some "fact" that
proves its case, and effectively demolishes the others.
For what Mr. Berton says
has been said before —
many times and in many
ways. Edward Gibbon
chronicled the triumph of
barbarism and of Christianity with more wit, elegance
and fact than Mr. Berton,
some 200 years ago. Whatever may be said against
the Established Church, its
ministers, for the most part,
present a much more encouraging picture than they
did 100 — or even 50 years
ago.
Sectarian differences and
moral fence sitting in the
churches is still marked,
but the Ecumenical movement and the spirit of reform evident at the Vatican
Council   show   the   possible
shape of things to come.
Clergymen have become increasingly involved and
committed to causes. Mr.
Berton, in the manner of
one trying hard to stay in
forefront of a movement,
mentions some of these
clergyment. He also draws
extensively upon the ideas
of such theologians and religious thinkers as Paul Til-
lich and Bishop John A. T.
Robinson, author of "Honest to God".
Somehow, Mr. Berton
seems to miss the main point
—and the main problem. No
century has seen as much
universal horror as this one.
The church, together with
many other organizations
and individuals, is struggling
desperately for answers and
solutions to the many problems of our times. Christianity has never really made
up its mind whether it is
propagating an ethic or promoting a personality. In an
acquisitive society it is easier to preach the necessity
for accepting a dead saviour,
who can rid people of their
sins, than it is to attack the
covetousness, self - seeking,
and snobbery that may well
be essential for the smooth
running of such a society.
The Church, as such, is
not a separate Establishment; it is part of that system of ideas, values, opinions and actions that form
the Establishment. Perhaps
people get the sort of church
—and sort of religion—they
deserve. Mr. Berton's book
merely proves, skillfully
^and eloquently, that yet another system built by Man is
inadequate for the needs of
modern Man.
The great religious dilemma of this century is related, not to the problem of
individual salvation, but to
the fear of universal destruction. And the Church
is becoming increasingly
aware of this. It is becoming
more and more willing to
admit that it no longer has
the right answers. In a world
that is still seeking to implement the values preached
by Christ, the Church is
starting, no matter how
feebly, to show its ideals by
action.
The Church, as an organization, is Man's work, not
God's. And the horrors of
the 20th Century show that
when Man abdicates his responsibilities and gives blind
allegiance   to   the   organiza-

A Critical Look at Christianity and the Religious

Age. By Pierre Berton.

tion, the system, the bureaucracy, the state and never
questions what they are doing, he transforms them into
instruments of great and unbelievable destruction and
evil.
It is when Mr. Berton puts
forward his ideas on how to
reform the system, and
bring the Church into the
New Age, that he reveals his
weakness.
Many of his ideas are
sound — worker priests,
clergymen freed from routine parish duties, a greater
sense of commitment to the
causes of the day in which
moral issues are involved.
But on the last page he calls
for a new Messiah — "one
man, of some spiritual genius, perhaps yet unborn, who
will take the incredible
laws, postures, and myths
of today's Church and will
turn them inside out, so they
have some relevance in the
New Age." Mr. Berton's
Messiah sounds suspiciously
like   a   charismatic political
leader, a new Hitler, convinced of the absolute rightness of his ideas.
For it is not to the actions
or to the promise of a single
man that mankind must
look. It is to themselves.
There are no more easy
answers, no more facile solutions, no more magic
words, no more problem-
solving rituals that will
overcome the great dangers
and difficulties that lie
around us. It is worth quoting here the words of Homer
W. Smith in "Man and His
Gods":
"A man can lose his god
but he cannot lose himself.
His fate was not decreed in
the temple of Osiris, or written on the tablets of Mar-
duk, or settled by Olympian
conclave or predestined by
a righteous Yahweh — he
has always had it clutched
in his own hands, he need
but open his fingers to read
his lifeline, he need but
close them resolutely upon
the task to turn his dreams
into reality. Then he will
pronounce life good and
cease to worry about that
which at present lies beyond
his ken, nor look back at
the phantasmagoria that
marks his past.
If the Church has made a
mistake in the past it has
been in placing too much
faith in God, and too little
in Man.
Mr. Berton has written an
entertaining, stimulating and
provocative book. But somehow he has missed the mark.
He has judged and condemned the modern church.
But too often the failings
of the modern church seem
to be those of modern men
and of modern society. If
this book focuses attention
upon our common failings
and our common problems,
religious and secular, and
not just upon those of the
church, it will have performed a worthwhile duty.

"Dear Pierre, I've got this Mother Superior . OVERSEAS
Sir Ouvry recalls a dusty
night in 1918 — and what's
happened to a land where
40 miles is half a world
away for its poor and hungry
By SIR OUVRY ROBERTS
MIDNIGHT or a little after in February 1918:
a babble of unintelligible
voices; human bodies everywhere, literally everywhere;
standing, sitting, lying;
mothers nursing their babies
—this was the main hall of
the railway station on my arrival for the first time at
the small town in India
which was to be my headquarters for many years.
I was one of a group of
six or seven young officers
—v e r y young, bewildered,
and covered with dust —
straight out from England.
Fortunately we were met
by the adjutant, and were
taken to a bungalow for the
night in a vehicle known as
a tonga, a sort of Irish gig
with the driver in front and
the passenger in the back.
When I stepped onto the
back, the whole front tipped
up and I thought the poor
pony with all his ribs showing would be lifted up and
turned over on top of me.
We drove about a mile
through a lovely night, crisp
and still, with stars hanging like lanterns in the sky,
visible over the tops of dark
green mango and nim trees.
I remember trying to give
a tip to an orderly looking
after me and my luggage,
but it was made clear to me,
politely, that this was not
done.
My bed, in which I was
soon fast asleep, was a network of rope stretched
across a wooden frame.
In my bathroom there was
a table with a basin and jug
on it, a tin tub and a thunder box; the water from the
bath ran out through a hole
in the wall, which had some
wire netting over it to stop
cobras coming in to enjoy
the cool of the bathroom.
That was nearly 50 years
ago and conditions have
changed, but the change that
has taken place is small
compared with many other
parts of the world such as
our own city of Vancouver.
Even up to the Second
World War the caste system
remained very much in evidence.
The origin of this caste
system dates back nearly
4,000 years; it was extremely rigid and restrictive.
THE WRITER
Sir Ouvry Roberts is the
parking czar at UBC, as just
about everybody knows.
He is also head of ceremonies and he came to the
post by way of a distinguished career in India,
stretching from the end of
the First World War into
the post Second World War
years.
Here, he writes of the
changes that he saw in India.
PF   Four
At the top were the priests
(Brahmans), then the warriors (Chhatris), then the artisans and merchants (Vaisi-
yas), and at the bottom the
menials (Sudras)? These
groups were divided into
sub-casts, something like
2,000, the majority in the
last two groups, with the
washerman above the
sweeper at the bottom of the
scale.
Although the caste system
was Hindu in origin, Mussulmans and Sikhs had also
largely adopted it.
Untouchables had no social status; they could not
enter a temple or share well
water with caste Hindus.
A Brahman could not eat
food cooked by anyone outside his own gotra, equivalent to the family.
Sometimes I would inspect their cooking areas,
and walk down the line of
little clay fireplaces, at each
of which a Brahman would
be cooking for only two or
three people, or even for
himself only.
I would watch the sun's
direction, since if my shadow fell on the food, it would
have to be thrown away.
It was not until 1934 that
the Hindus in our Corp of
Sappers and Miners agreed
that they would all feed
from one cookhouse, and
then only because they were
told that they would not be
enlisted unless they did. Men
were enlisted in those days
from a comparatively small
number of tribes which were
considered to be the fighting
races.
How much has all this
this changed? Well, nowadays I would still arrive in
the middle of the night, but
I would not be covered in
dust, having travelled in a
dust - proof air - conditioned
railway carriage.
The station would not
look  all that different, the
crowd would still be there
in the main hall and babble
of voices, but I would be
driven to my bungalow in a
car, and the bungalow would
have a modern bathroom
and electric fans.
In the old days I had to
sleep under a pankah, a long
piece of wood from which
hung a piece of cloth, and
a pankah coolie outside
would pull this to and fro
with his toe through a loop
in the end of a rope which
passed through the wall over
a pulley to the pankah.
Since the war the caste
system has been discouraged; in 1947 untouchability
was outlawed and in 1955 a
law was passed making discrimination against untouchables a criminal offence.
Educated people in the
cities have largely discarded
caste restrictions, though
there is still social distinction.
But vast numbers of Indians in their villages are
still uneducated. Without
visiting these villages, it is
difficult to appreciate their
isolation.
As late as 1939 I was out
shooting and gave an orange
to a small boy. He had never
seen one before, yet we
were in sight of the dome of
the mosque in Delhi, though
this was 40 or 50 miles away
by road over the Jumna
River bridge. He had never
been to Delhi.
In the army, standards
have been maintained, as
far as one can judge. Pride
in their past, discipline, enthusiasm, regimental spirit,
initiative and smartness are
all there. British standards
and traditions are being followed.
In 1964 I had breakfast in
my old officers' mess, and it
could not have been better—
an excellent meal served on
a spotless white tablecloth
by waiters in spotless white
achkans, a form of dress.
Will the removal of the
British officer have an effect on the fighting capacity
of the Indian soldier? No
one can tell. The recent defeat of India by the Chinese
is no true indication, since it
was due to lack of equipment and poltical unpre-
paredness.
The British have had to
retreat on many occasions,
and no one has suggested
that therefore they are poor
soldiers. On the Burma front
during the last war I had a
unit in my division, a battalion consisting entirely of
Sikhs, in which all the officers were Sikhs, and a
very good battalion it was,
too.
Nowadays, many tribes
and classes are enlisted in
the army, from which men
used not to be taken because
they were not considered to
be fighting material.
Many of these tribes were
however enlisted in the Second World War and proved
their worth, though they
were perhaps not up to the
standard of the traditional
fighting races.
The Indian Army contained many units which were
among the best in the world,
and I believe that this high
standard will be maintained.
You may say that I am
prejudiced, and I probably
am. Then, some of the happiest years of my life were
spent in India, and I have a
great respect and affection
for the Indian soldier.
South Africa
changes name
of apartheid
but that's all
By SUSAN ADAMS
This week the African Students Association intends to
draw UBC's attention to
South African apartheid.
The meaning of apartheid
is obvious if one pronounces
it correctly—'apart hate'.
The South African government has recently rejected
the use of apartheid — they
now term, it separate development.
Each race is given the
right to advance in its own
segregated areas. There are
two worlds: one for the three
million whites and one for
the non-whites, consisting of
12 million Negroes, one and
a half million mulattos and
a half a million East Indians.
If one world happens to
dominate the other, it is purly
incidental!
•    •    •
For the mass of Negroes
there are eight reserves; later
they wil lbecome bantustans.
Only the Transkei at the
moment, has self-governing
bantustan status.
Here the people have a
government similar to that
of a British protectorate.
There is a Negro university
mainly financed and directed
by the white South African
government. White industrialists are not allowed to
set up industries in a bantustan.
Similarly the Negro cannot
enter a w hite area unless his
labor  is needed.   If he  was
born in a whtie area or if he
has worke dfor one employer for 10 years or several employers for 15 years, he may
reside in that area.
Job reservation is another
form of apartheid. Particularly in industries such as
cloth manufacturing, building and automobile assembly
mnay jobs are reserved for
whites.
A tricky situation has now
arisen. Because of South
Africa's fantastic boom there
are vacant jobs. The railways
and postal services are looking for men and there are
men looking for work—but
they are non-white.
• •    •
Dr. Verwoerd (the prime
minister) now intends to separate white and non-white
politics. He will do this by
forbidding white controlled
parties from putting up candidates for and campaigning
in any non-white election.
One might suppose that
people would revolt under
such a system.
But the South African government has strength. For
the past two years the detention law has been in effect.
This law gave security police
power to detain suspects for
up to 90 days without charging them or bringing them to
trial. The police announced
that the law's main purpose
was to make people talk.
They admitted that it had
been a useful weapon for
averting revolution.
• •   •
When this law was suspended a few weeks ago, a
South African newspaper
said: "A particularly wretched chapter in S outh African
history is closed—forever, we
trust."
Unfortunately, I think only
the first phase of this chapter is closed—more will follow.

Holger answers
back with some
outside reading
for professors
By HOLGER HERWIG
It took a "quite simple"
report on Germany today to
do it. But it has finally come
about.
UBC's German department*
has come out of its perennial
hibernation and acknowledged the existence of more
than Goethe, Bach and Beethoven in German Kullur.
Perhaps spring has finally
sprung.
In defence against Mr.
Loeb's criticism (PF, Jan.
22) of my report I might
point out that my original
article should have read
"Betrachtungen E i n e s Un-
politischen broadcast from
London in 1945."
And further, I do not profess to be an expert on
Thomas Mann. After all, that
is what Mr. Leob is getting
paid to know. Yet it was
most interesting to see the
associate professor descend
from his ivory tower to deliver an attack on the simplicity of the present author's mind.
But, perhaps, he launched
his attack somewhat prematurely. For the presents
author's views run precisely
parallel to those of the Regius Professor of Modern
History at Oxford — Mr.
H. R. Trevor-Roper — and
to those of the eminent British historian and author of
The Course of German History, The Struggle for Mastery in Europe, and The Origins of the Second World
War — A. J. P. Taylor.
During a recent visit to
Vancouver, during the
course of which he received
an honorary degree from
UBC, Mr. Trevor-Roper declared in a television interview that Europe could only
be saved from a third catastrophe by the maintenance
of Allied troops on German
soil ensuring the permanent
division of Germany.
Professor Taylor goes so
far as to say that there is
no doubt whatsoever that
German revanchism will,
indeed, cause a future war.
And while it must really
be a "simple" matter for an
associate professor of German to attack a mere undergraduate for his unenlightened views, it is quite another matter when those un-
enlilghtened views are shared by two such illustrious
historians.
Yet Mr. Loeb's comments
do throw some rather interesting light on the habit of
Germans to take any criticism of their nation as a personal insult and to attack
with a spirited and often
vitriolic personal assault.
. Indeed, one of the recipients of this form of attack
was Golo Mann (who has recently left Germany to take
up residence in Switzerland), son of Thomas Mann
and author of an impressive
book on German History in
the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century. He was castigated by the entire German
(West) press as well as by
fellow historians for urging
the Bonn Government -to
finally renounce its claims
to the territory east of the
Oder-Neisse line. The present author was among the
listeners at the Ludwig-
Maxmillian University i n
Munich when Mr. Mann delivered his speech, which
was received with reactions
ranging from shock and bewilderment to   hate.
I would recommend to Mr.
Loeb that he read an article
by Volker Berghahn in the
Journal of Centrol European Affairs, vol. 22, 1962-
63, entitled "Right-Wing
Radicalism in West Germany's Younger Generation", and that he turn his
energy towards combatting
the evil aspects of the forces
of nationalism and militarism as well as the indifference of Germany's youth towards democracy instead of
merely attacking those who
see fit to report this.
The tragic attitude of the
young generation can only
be altered if we are prepared to acknowledge its existence and to combat it by explaining to these people why
their country is divided and
why the Western world, not
to mention Eastern Europe,
is so extremely skeptical—
if not downright hostile—
to the idea of a re-unified
Germany. Further, we must
give that youth a role in
their present society.
This can, of course, not
be done if history stops for
them in 1871 — as it does
in most West German high
schools — and if all attacks
on present and past evils are
seen and rebuked as personal attacks.

Ma makes a
graceful exit
from premier's
biggest bash
By  PAT  HORROBIN
HOORAY for the double
standard.
"The admission of ladies
would expand the invitation
list by an unrealistic margin," the word has come on
Vancouver's Feb. 19 testimonial blast for Premier
Bennett.
Wives are out, although
they never were invited.
Lois Haggen, lone female
member of the B.C. Legislature, is out.
Female plumbers — not to
mention female bank janitors, income tax adjusters,
members of the Princeton
search and rescue squad and
home - bound brat - raisers—
seem to be out. Female impersonators may make it.
And Lillooet newspaper
publisher Ma Murray has
bowed herself out as gracefully as any lady can who
is 77, tart-quipped and the
feature speaker.
Not a suspicion that newspaper publishers (she is), no
matter how Liberal, are getting the gate. Or folks who
wear union suits (probable).

Blithe Spirit presented by
Richmond Community Theatre was in the worst sense
of the word amateur — i.e.
amateurish; bungling.
Bob Ross as Charles was
no match for the prompter,
who, possibly because he
had the script in his hand,
delivered the husband's lines
with considerably more assurance.
Catherine Mallard as Ruth
delivered her speeches
juicily, rather as if through
a mouthful of grapes.
Helen Moore played Madame Arcati with swooping,
blowsy gestures which were
obviously a delight to the
relatives and other assorted
well-wishers in the audience. She seemed to be
speaking with a mouthful of
potatoes and tin whistles.

PEOPLE
Japan's women
outstrip ours:
they're now
more equal
The Feminine Mystique is
a world-wide problem, says
a woman who has had a
considerable place in the
Japanese woman's drive for
equality since 1945.
Now, Miss Kazuko Tsur-
umi feels, Japanese women
have outstripped North American women in taking a
meaningful part in society,
and have overcome the mystique.
Some questions from Pat
Horrobin and straight answers from Miss Tsurumi former journalist and radio
commentator turned sociologist:
Q. What is the role of
Japanese women today?
A. Japanese young women are emphasizing their
traditional femininity AND
their new-found legal independence. It is a new kind of
femininity — it involves, of
course, having loveable characteristics and humane feelings, but having intellect
and economic independence.
Q. Economic independence — you mean married
women also?
A. Yes. In Japan it has
been legally constituted that
both men and women are
responsible for economic
support of the family. In
North America, what the
woman earns is merely
"something extra". This is
not equality.
Q. Well, what is the difference between North American women and Japanese
women, then?
A. North American women are more content with
being dependent on father
or husband. On the outside,
they're content. They think
it's somehow right to be dependent—it's this business of
the feminine mystique.
They're irritated within
themselves, unsatisfied.
Women, you see, are trying to appear more feminine in North America. They
don't know what to think
of themselves.
It's like the young girls
sometimes ask in Japan: "Do
we lose our femininity if
we rise and talk, if we organize unions, read books,
go to university or go out
and work?"
Q. Japanese women are
much more active in the professions — as doctors, ministers, and even polticians—
than North American women. Why? ♦
A.   Women and young
people have the most to gain
in Japan. The war years
showed them what comes of
one way of thinking. They
went through so much for
an outdated way of life.
They want to take a part
in their country's life now.
They feel their personal life
only reflects what is happening in society in general.
Q. Are there some legal
aspects in North America
where women are not
"equal"?
A.   Just for one example,
civil codes differ from state
to state in the United States.
In   nearly   half   the   states
ebYnt-
"Women's Disability"
clauses are in effect — women cannot appear in court;
their husbands appear for
them. Women's disability!
Q. The pre - war world
is why Japanese women
have been so concerned with
"equality"?
A. 1945 was the first
time democratic values were
legalized in Japan. Before it
had always been a hierarchical society, male dominance, filial piety and emperor worship being the basis
of society. A paradoxical
way to build a modern industrial nation.
(Japanese philosopher, former journalist and radio
commentator turned sociologist Miss Kazuko Tsurumi
will speak in the Hebb
Building Tuesday at 8 p.m.).
As a result women today
know what they want from
marriage. They want education. They want self-respect.
They want independence to
have a life of their own.
Q. How do the older,
pre-war generations feel
about this?
A. It makes, of course,
for some conflict between
the generations. Instead of
cruelty to daughter-in-law it
is sometimes heard that it is
the other way around. Especially in urban areas, the
younger women get a much
bigger say than older women.
In fact, Japan has what
are called "Old Men's"
schools, run in the temples.
Old men and women go together to study about the
changing social forces in
Japan, and about the new
ideas — about what the
younger people are doing.

Collegium's
introduction
By WARREN BELL
I wasn't sleepy last Friday night.
God knows, I tried to
sleep while Mr. Hans-Karl
Piltz of the music department described with depressing detail the exact geological location of the birthplace of Thomas Biber (the
violinist whose music was to
provide the evening's entertainment).
I failed — fortunately, for
the music that followed was
well chosen and well played.
But aside from the music,
I came away with the basic
impression that the Collegium Musicum's concert was
a gathering for faculty members and affiliates — a little
family circle — to which
strangers were admitted
and, indeed, expected but in
which they could not blend
or feel comfortable.
The _ jokes in which Mr.
Piltz occasionally indulged
were of great importance to
the faculty members present. I felt rather an intruder.
And the introduction
which he gave to each piece
was of interest primarily to
students of musicology; at
least they were so rambling
and inconclusive for the
most part that only a devotee would have patience
to separate the grain from
the chaff.
Perhaps I am too harsh.
The atmosphere was amiable and relaxed at the
concert.
But there was not enough
meat — digestible meat, that
is; lots of music in short,
with concise, informative
commentary — to attract
any but the most single-
minded students of music.

week, a shot at why and how
what it is ...
The fifth festival of the
contemporary arts is an attempt to show UBC what is
happening in art today —
what today's artists are doing, how they do it, what
they do it with, and why.
A festival starts with a
long list of artists.
Then it tries to find the
best way to show these
people and their works to
the most students — in the
most captivating manner.
This year, the best way is
all over campus, from Feb.
1 to 10.
To best show contemporary art, there are happenings (spontaneous and otherwise), static gallery exhibitions, active artists at work,
music, musicians, poetry,
poets, films, film makers,
architectural structures on
the mall — and more, and
others.
One can participate or observe.
And one can observe finished products, or observe
their creation.
Here's what happens during the first week of the
festival.

poser's son, Mr. Ogdon displayed at once a nearly
flawless finger technique as
well as a feeling for the
warmth and gaiety of the
piece.
The slow movements designed to appeal to the
young at heart, received a
beautifully sensitive and un-
imposing interpretation.
■ One of the remarkable
features of Mr. Ogdon's
playing was his blending of
tonal colors with those of
orchestral instruments. For
example, in the first movement of the Shostakovitch,
the pianist's high treble runs
matched those of the piccolo.
Mr. Ogdon's Rachmaninoff, which earned a standing ovation, has to rate as
the most exciting  perform
ance of this work I have
heard.
Quite apart from his dazzling technique and vision, it
was his beautiful tone prevailing through the most formidable passages which was
his most amazing quality.
If one has to fault him for
anything, it is that his
rhythm was not always
steady, notably in the difficult fifteenth variation.
The orchestral portion of
the program consisted of a
rather fruity arrangement
by Sir Edward Elgar of part
of Handel's second Chandoo
Anthem, Stravinsky's ballet
suite Apollon Musagete, and
Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2.
The Stravinsky failed, not
because of the performance,
which was competent, but
because the score of the ballet hasn't enough musical
interest to be able to stand
by itself as a concert piece.

BACKGROUND
Committee dissected
By COROL SMITH
For a look at some of the background
to the weekly council hassle, Ubyssey
reporter Corol Smith went deep into
deepest Brock for a look at a typical
AMS committee, one that turned out to
be not so typical.
A piece of the AMS was born Jan. 11—the
AMS special working committee on the Three
Universities Capital Funds Drive.
The committee will last as long as the Drive,
about five years, and will serve three purposes:
• It will collect, analyse and make recommendations concerning the role of the student
in the Capital Funds Drive.
• It will present this information in a brief
to the AMS as a guide in the AMS final decision.
• It will put this decision into force and provide public relations services for the student
effort.
Council appointed AMS first vice-
president Bob Cruise chairman of the committee and council members Arts Undergraduate Society president Chas. Pentland, Commerce president John Hamilton and Education president Dave Lynn have volunteered
to sit on it.
On Jan. 14, the committee entered it's childhood. A notice was put in the AMS Notices
section of The Ubyssey that the committee
had been struck.
"We've got a good working committee
now," said Chairman Cruise Wednesday,
"but we're still open to interested people."
"We have never
been in the position of
having too many applicants for a committee, and we have never
had to turn anyone
down because most of
the students who apply have a genuine interest," Cruise said.
He said the committee would require a
great deal of student
support in its later
stages to put the decision of the AMS into
action, but at present
what is needed is students willing to provide
suggestions and formulate a brief or recommendation.
"It will not be a clique, it will be a training
ground," said Cruise. He intends to remain
chairman for only a limited period of time,
then one of the student members of the committee will take his place.
The committee was formed to release council from extra work which would bog it down
with exams and elections coming.
Tuesday the committee met with Fund
Drive director Alf Adams for information and
to discuss policy.
Early in February the committee will pres-
CHAS. PENTLAND
. . . volunteer
BOB CRUISE
. we're growing
ent its recommendation to council. The AMS
has the final say, but its judgment will be
based on the information it receives from the
committee.
Some suggestions as to the role the students
are to play have already been made.
Three are prominent:
• That an AMS contribution spread over the
five years of the Fund Drive would be appropriate. In view of
the $15 which students
already contribute to
the UBC building fund
through their AMS
fees, Cruise said he
does not feel students
should be asked for a
direct mandatory contribution.
• That students should
actively campaign for
funds in adoor-to-door
blitz or by some other
means.
• That students ignore
the Fund Drive on the
basis that they are already contributing to
the  UBC building fund.
This is an example of the diversity of opinion to be dealt with by the committee, and
the scope of the investigation.
The brief to council will contain the actual
cash value to the Fund Drive of each alternative, what the strain will be on students,
and how willing students are to co-operate.
When council makes it's decision the committee will change form radically.
Instead of gathering and processing information, it will organize the mechanics of the
plan Council adopts and provide public relations services.
For example, if Council decided to couple
an annual voluntary student donation with a
letter canvas of parents, there will be a great
deal of plain hard work to be done.
The committee would split into two bodies,
one for each end of the program.
The student canvassers would have a program of advertising and money collecting on
a campus-wide scale to organize, and perhaps
a pep meet or stunt to set up.
The group canvassing parents by letter
would have letters to prepare, envelopes to
address and, hopefully, money to count.
AMS committees ordinarily can be considered either social or standing committees.
Open house was an example of a social
committee at it's best. From a council-
appointed chairman, it's growth to a committee of 30 and a working force of 3,000 showed
the force of UBC in action.
The Brock Art committee and the Men's
Athletic committee are standing committees.
They are joint faculty-student committees
with representatives from both student council and the administration. They are struck
every year as part of the organization of student affairs.

He said the Activists will

MacDonald, sponsored by

Young men of ability can get to the top fast at
Boeing. Today, Boeing's business backlog is
just under two billion dollars, of which some
60 per cent is in commercial jetliner and helicopter product areas. The remainder is in military programs and government space flight
contracts. This gives the company one of the
most stable and diversified business bases in
the aerospace industry.
No matter where your career interests lie —
in the commercial jet airliners of the future
or in space-flight technology — you can find
an opening of genuine opportunity at Boeing.
The company's world leadership in the jet
transport field is an indication of the calibre
of people you'd work with at Boeing.
Boeing is now pioneering evolutionary advances in the research, design, development
and manufacture of civilian and military aircraft of the future, as well as space programs
of such historic importance as America's first,
moon landing. Gas turbine engines, transport
helicopters, marine vehicles and basic research are other areas of Boeing activity.
Whether your career interests lie in basic or
applied research, design, test, manufacturing
or administration, there's a spot where your
talents are needed at Boeing. Engineers, mathematicians and scientists at Boeing work in
small groups, so initiative and ability get maximum exposure. Boeing encourages participation in the company-paid Graduate Study
Program at leading colleges and universities
near company installations.
We're looking forward to meeting engineering,
mathematics and science seniors and graduate
students during our visit to your campus. Make
an appointment now at your placement office.

"They have more of an inner potential for good cooking
than women," W. R. Wasson said.
"If a woman were cooking for 2,500 people she would
get to a certain point, start crying and run away."
