 Frat told: 'Shut  up or get out
Vancouver city council has
given Delta Upsilon Fraternity one week to curtail noisy
night-time activities at the
fraternity's Kerrisdale house.
"If they (the fraternity)
don't, they will find themselves persecuted or prosecuted right out of the city," Alderman Orson Banfield stated
•      •      •
The ultimatum was directed
against the fraternity after a
delegation of six determined
residents of the 2800 block
West Thirty-seventh presented a petition to council asking
a city investigation of the
fraternity house operations.
"If they don't voluntarily
conform to acceptable behaviour, then I am in favor
of using full powers of the
city to end this nuisance,"
said Mayor Tom Alsbury.
The fraternity was not represented at the council meeting.
Aid. Banfield was appointed to investigate the situation after a suggestion to
have Corporation Counsel
Russell Baker apply for a
Kunreme Court injunction tc
close down the house was rejected.
A fuller report by Banfield
will be presented to council

before we take drastic
action," he said.

MAC Incompetence'
but barely
A split vote in student council Tuesday night saved the
National Federation of Canadian University, Students from
an untimely end at UBC.
Council voted 9-3 to stay in
NFCUS for another year. One
councillor abstained.
Treasurer Malcolm Scott said,
"Without UBC, NFCUS would
wither away."
"They should be given a year
to prove themselves—they have
the money and the people to
produce significant results this
Education president Jolyon
Hallows said, "We've been in
NFCUS for 30 years; each year
we've said 'give it another
chance.' "
"It's the same story this
Qn the heels of the decision
to remain came the issue of a
proposed 10-cent increase in
NFCUS fees.
Delegates to the NFCUS congress in Sherbrooke, Que. were
blasted for obligating council to
the fee increase and to produce
a national magazine.
Delegate Malcolm Scott, AMS
treasurer, said council wasn't
obligated morally or otherwise.
"We merely tried to get you
the best deal possible," he said.
The fee increase passed on
another split vote.
Said Law president Sam Merrifield: "This could be the beginning of more and more demands by  NFCUS."
Council also approved the
mandate to The Ubyssey to produce a national student magazine (yet to be named).
Again  there  were  dissenters.
"This is a completely untested product," said Commerce
president Lloyd Martin, "We
are risking $3,000 and stand to
gain nothing in return."

room for drama students. Theatre, part of Fine Arts complex,
will have two revolving stages and seating for 400.
Athletic board
one-man show'
The Men's Athletic Committee is incompetent, two student
councillors charged Tuesday.
R. F. Osborne, director of the School of Physical Education
was accused of dominating the committee and running a one-
man show.
Acadia  council president
has split personality
WOLFVILLE (CUP)—Acadia University has three student council presidents—all holding office at the same time.
The situation, unique in Canadian, student history, was
brought about when a troika was the only nomination received for the presidency.
The troika offered its services "in the interest of student
welfare," the student newspaper said.
The troika will have one council vote, and three voices
and will act as a single unit.
"Three heads are better than one," a spokesman for the
triumvirate said.
A special committee, formed
after in camera discussion at
Tuesday's council meeting, will
investigate the charges.
Bernie Papke and Peter Shepard leveled the accusations after attending a MAC meeting
in place of Doug Stewart and
Malcolm Scott, absent at a Quebec conference.
Papke, AMS co-ordinator of
activites, said he was '"shocked"
after attending the meeting. Osborne is the man in control, he
said, not the chairman, Dean
A. W. Matthews.
President Stewart and Treasurer Scott, who are on the Committee as AMS representatives,
supported Papke's charges.
"It isn't necessarily one man,
but certain members of the P.E.
department who all think the
same way," said Scott.
"They present the case after
the fact," he said.
Stewart, who returned to campus yesterday, said he agreed
MAC  was "poorly run."
He complained that MAC liked to present problems to council after action had already been
"It's pretty difficult to refuse
to approve an expenditure after
the money has been spent;," he
MAC gets $56,300 of student
funds and a free hand to spend
Council should haye more say
in where 17 per cent of its total
budget is going, said Papke.
"The AMS had to threaten
MAC with a lawsuit to get a
look at its books this summer,"
he said.
"And they found that the
$4.30 per student allotment had
never been officially approved
by student council; all we are
actually obligated to is $3.40.
"We could use this as a lever,"
said treasurer Scott.
MAC also closes its doors to
reporters. Ubyssey repor t e r s
were refused admission to MAC
meetings last year.
The investigating committee
is headed by Science president
Don Farish. Farish was noncommittal about the direction
the investigation would take.
The committee has two weeks
to complete its work.
None of the senior faculty
members on MAC were available for comment at press time
MAC has also come under
fire   from   another   direction.
A recent MAC decision to
drop financial support for summer sports is bringing protests
from cricket, cycling, golf, tennis, and baseball.

Frosh may lose their seat on
student council if a petition
prepared by the Engineering
under-graduate society is passed

Ole Miss is Confederate grey
It appears that many students at the University of Mississippi would like to secede from
the academic world.
A wire story reports that many of them are
still fighting the American Civil War — conceded by the South nearly 100 years ago.
These students are hanging Confederate
flags from their dormitory windows. Many
were seen wearing grey Confederate army unir
forms at one of the big football games that
constitute the university's main claim to fame.
History, it appears, has passed them by. And
so have other academic disciplines. These scholars cling to long disproved beliefs that Negroes
are culturally inferior to other races.
These students are not swayed by the
search for truth. Truth, to them, is what
Southern demagogues say about race relations.
But face reality, they must, eventually.
Meanwhile, however, local merchants and
especially the student store, are cashing in on
the new demand for hate symbols.
Girding themselves to fight one lone Negro,
the students are purchasing the Confederate
flags and grey caps and uniforms of their ancestors with great-alacrity.
No amount of reasoning, it has been found,
will sway them from their conviction that white
supremacy is somehow God-ordained.
Reporters from all over have found themselves attacked as 'nigger-lovers" and "damn
Yankees" as they probed for answers to the big
question outsiders ask: Why?
The answers reporters have got have not
seemed to them sufficient reason for the violence that has taken place.
Grey is a suitable symbol for these students.
Their thinking on basic issues is fuzzy grey—
although they see most things in terms of black
and white.
And grey, after all, is only dirty white. That
is what these people are: whites who have
soiled themselves by putting prejudice before
The academic world is based on reason. If
they secede they won't be missed.
Don't whisper ... we  can  shout
If you live in the Point Grey area—whether
you batch, board or live at home—and are 19
or older, you will be able to vote in the forthcoming byelection in that provincial riding.
If, that is, your name is on the voters' list.
The UBC Liberal club appealed to Mr. Bonner, who cleared the way for transient students
to get this vote, and four registration stations
are now operating so that you can get listed.
The rest, obviously, is up to you.
It is the democratic duty of adult Canadian
citizens to express their opinion of the government through the ballot, and our way of life
retains its vitality only so long as this duty is
conscientiously performed.
That is reason enough for the politically
aware, but they have already registered. This
editorial is directed to those who don't know
enough, or care enough, to get their names on
that list.
To them we would like to point out that
UBC cannot afford to miss this opportunity.
There are at least 3,000 potential student
votes in the Point Grey riding, votes that in
the past have had no influence on the sitting
But now we have a chance to create a student voting bloc.
Students were formerly considered represented by the members sitting for the riding in
which their parents' homes were located. This
meant that what strength we had was dissipated.
Now that we have a chance to speak with a
united voice on matters of student interest—
UBC financing, for instance—we cannot afford
to whisper.
We by no means dominate the riding, but
a vociferous minority demanding its rights
can accomplish a great deal.
So go see those registrars before Friday
afternoon. Your vote might make all the difference. —D.A.
Food on campus
Food on campus (like rain, queues and
lectures) is usually unavoidable—and almost
always bad.
But unlike rain, queues and lectures, the
price of food has gone up this year. Food Services doesn't want to say why and this leads us
to think that perhaps the food moguls are taking advantage of a captive audience.
If the quality of the food had gone up or
if the quantity had gone up we wouldn't complain. But they haven't, so we are.
Sometimes it isn't even ail food.
Pork chop suey occasionally includes extras
such as silver paper, a few grains of grit, a
small sliver of wood and, for the most fortunate,
some raw mineral additives in the form of a
shaving from a tin can lid.
We don't mind eating yesterday's left-over
mashed potatoes as today's fried potato patties,
but please, couldn't we perhaps have two vegetables with the 65-cent meal? —M.G.
Well, it all started with the cave-in at the parking lot.

Letters to the  Editor:  Food  services  hit
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Brock  Hall.
Dear Sir:
Staphylococcus exotoxin is
a poison which sometimes contaminates food. If ts'sen internally, it causes severe vomiting
and diarrhea, internal hemorrhaging, cramps, dizziness, and
generalized pain without fever.
Under certain circumstances it
can  be fatal.
I was one of the nine people
afilicted with this type of
poisoning who reported to the
University Hospital on Oct. 2.
The poisoning was almost immediately traced to egg sandwiches purchased in the cafeteria beneath the Auditorium.
It was later traced to an infected member of the cafeteria
It would seem that trained
and responsible personnel,
checked periodically for throat,
nose, and skin infection, are not
likely to be a source of staphylococci in cafeteria food. Moreover, adequate refrigeration
and careful handling of foods
such as egg sandwiches prevent these foods from becoming a culture media for staphy-
Therefore, the university
food services are not to bf:
commended because such food
poisoning happens only occasionally: it should never happen.
Yours very truly,
ENG. 4.
Story missed
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Would it be possible for the
editorial staff of the Ubyssey
to infrom us as to the purpose
of this said newspaper? We
have always believed, although
it has never been shown, that
its purpose was one of a news
media for the campus, and not
that of an exclusive club.
The sensationalism and flash
magazine tactics of late, are
very disheartening and surely
not representative of the student body.
The question of the Ubyssey's purpose has arisen due to
your complete lack of publicity or even interest in the
first Inter-Provincial Agricultural Conference held on this
campus during Sept. 25 to 28
of this year, n seems very discouraging to us that a conference drawing university students from across Canada and
the U.S. would receive no
recognition by this campus
n'.edia (The Ubyssey). It is
also, very disappointing because personal contact was
made with one of your reporters who was given adequate
typewritten information about
the entire proceedings. For
your information we would like
to inform the heirarchy (The
Ubyssey staff) that the Vancouver medias, the Sun and the
Province and also the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
showed active interest and
We are fully aware of your
problems of limiiea space, but
leel that of the three publications that week and the three
since, one item could have and
should have been included. If
Ubyssey is going to be completely representative and
since the student body is the
contributor to their budget, we
suggest that the editorial stall
review its policies and responsibilities.
Yours very truly,
Chairman,   I.P.A.C.

'Destructive criticism'
The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
There can be no doubt as to
the value of good criticism.
There is however, much
danger incorporated into the
irresponsible use of the pen.
An individual,operating under the label of Dave Nordstrom, has  taken the  weapon
of destructive criticism and demolished the framework of an
idea presented in a display
called HERE WAS MAN. This,
in itself, would not have been
a condemnable act had the
work been carefully reviewed
—it wasn't.
Mr. Nordstrom, describes the
display as tracing "the development and probable decline of man, to and from a
state of savage bestiality/'
Savage? Bestiality?
The first canvas is a credible representation of earliest
"man"—the "man" depicted
has an air of serenity.
There is no belligerence in
the expression of physical attitude. Following canvases represent hypothetical beginnings of family groups, art
forms, and religion. Savage
The critic states further that
the display "cannot be considered an art exhibit." Why
Yours truly,

at large
Well, I suppose with the inadequate protection given to
our stuff it was inevitable.
I had a perfect umbrella and
some snivelling rat stole it from
one of the lousy "leave here"
places in front of the library
My umbrella was magnificent. It had a curved handle
with a design on it, a thin
chromium-plated tube and a
lethal-looking pointed  tip.
Best of all was a little button near the handle. All" you
had to do was push this, and
the bumbershoot went up with
a boom.
• •      •
Now all this  is  gone.
It looks to me like there are
two problems here.
First, there is the inadequacy of protection for goods
at the library stack entrances.
Any nasty wretch handy at
looking nonchalant can stroll
out with two or three briefcases, umbrellas, purses, etc.,
There is only an open shelf
to put things on. You can't
even chain your stuff down.
Yet the library takes no responsibility. And to take anything larger than a gum wrapper into the stacks is tantamount to being convicted of
thievery  yourself.
• • *
Second, there is the character of the thief. Anybody who
would stoop as low must be
a pretty miserable specimen.
(Or an Engineer.  Or both).
It's too bad that by university such a grimy sneak has
not yet grown up. At least by
now he should be resorting to
subtler methods. Like beating
up little old ladies.
• •      •
What's the solution to this
theft problem?
The library might install a
check room. Or they could provide bus-terminal style lockers. For, say. a nickel a use.
• *       •
But anyway, what they won't
let us cart with us, they should
make it their business to protect.
As for our ratty thief: if
you see him you might run
him through with his ill-gotten gains. Then you could press
that little button—you know,
near the handle.

IKIRU ("Living"), directed by Akira Kurosawa in 1952
but released only recently in the West, reaches Vancouver piled
high with critical acclaim. Most critics consider it Kurosawa's
most "important" (i.e. socially conscious) work, which it most
likely is. However, it has certain artistic flaws which prevent its
being classed as a masterpiece, including loose construction and
some not-always successful stylistic innovations.
The film's main character, Mr. Watanabe, is a petty bureaucrat in a large Japanese city. For the past 25 years he has been,
figuratively speaking, dead: "dehumanized by the soulless routine of his job." i
'Six mjordJu ai ihs. ojui&idc'
At the beginning of the film Mr. Watanabe learns he has
cancer, and will die within six months. His first reaction is one
of shock, then of self-pity and anger at the way he has wasted
his life. He goes on an all-night binge, hoping to find fulfilment
in sensual indulgence. The next morning, desolate, he runs into
an ex-employee from his office. Desperately he clings to her, as
if somehow her simple exuberance might prevent him from slipping into the blackness he feels surrounding him.
She tells him about her new job, making mechanical toy
rabbits. It is simple but constructive work, and she gets satisfaction from the pleasure she knows the toys will bring ("I like
to feel that all the children of Japan are my friends"). She misunderstands his advances and soon tires of him, but Mr. Watanabe has at last discovered how to live.
Ceaselessly, tirelessly, he pushes a project for a small neighborhood park through the laziness, selfishness, red tape and corruption of the civic administration. Five months later, the playground a reality, he dies.
At his wake, Mr. Watanabe's superiors discredit him while
his colleagues make a sake-sogged attempt at understanding
his actions. But there is only one of them who comprehends the
true worth of his example, and vows to follow it; who realizes,
as Mr. Watanabe did, that living is the unselfish giving of one's
talents and of oneself for the benefit of others.
Kurosawa develops this profoundly humanistic theme by an
intricate technique of fragmentary flashbacks which attempts to
capture the processes of the mind and the rhythms of memory.
fijoiqnmd jum d$ lejchmque
The technique is perhaps most poignantly and effectively
used in the scenes, early in the film, of Mr. Watanabe recalling
incidents from his past life.
Kurosawa cuts freely and repeatedly from present to past
and back again, building up an accumulative force in the swift
juxtaposition of these two planes of reality. Tlhe flashbacks themselves often have a poetic concentration, and there are several
other scenes of great power, enhanced by the expressive and
finely controlled acting of Takashi Shimura in the central role.
Occasionally, however, Kurosawa's stylistic coups divert
one's attention to the extent of detracting from the dramatic
impact of a scene.
Also, the long anti-climactic end section of the film, although
extremely revealing of character, tends to weaken whatever
unity the film might otherwise have had. And here, regrettably,
a note dangerously close to sentimentality makes itself heard
(e.g. in the scene of Mr. Watanabe alone in the park at night).
In this scene and elsewhere the musical score is superfluous and
rather banal.
One can only commend Kurosawa for essaying such a
significant theme in such a bold and experimental manner.
But although the result is impressive, neither the script nor
the direction has quite the sustained eloquence necessary for the
treatment to become entirely worthy of the topic.
NOTE: In common with many of the more unconventional foreign films to get a commercial release in Vancouver, "Ikiru"
was pulled after a short run. It will be shown by Cinema 16
tonight at 8:00 in the UBC Auditorium as the first in a series
of Japanese films (series passes available at the door).
—tony reif
The opening concert of a new season inevitably tempts speculation about the nature of

the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra demonstrated a potential which encourages one to suspect
that this season may become one of its most
successful artistically to date.
Certainly the orchestra was playing in good
form and conductor Irwin Hoffman displayed
an intelligent approach to all the works on the
Perhaps Ernst von Dohnanyi represents the
romantic traditionalist among recent composers.
Strongly influenced by Brahms, his music typically possesses a strict formality while often
abounding in sensuous melodies.
Such is the case in his Suite in F Sharp
Minor, which opened Sunday's concert in the
Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The suite flows from
the impetus of a set of variations on an andante
subject in its. first movement. Brahmsian melodies pour forth throughout the following movements until the work comes to a close with a
repitition of the opening theme. It may not be
a strikingly original work, but the suite has become one of Dohnanyi's most popular compositions.
Music of such broad sweep and rich orchestration seems ideally suited to Irwin Hoffman's
gifts as a conductor. Swelling phrases and broad
structural outlines were built with considerable
success. This was a well paced, forward-moving
performance, competently played.
The concerto for two pianos, percussion, and
orchestra probably does not represent Bartok
at his best. For one thing it seems at times to be
without direction, probing ideas without following them through logically.
The characteristic sharp, incisive sounds,
snatches of melody, savage rhythms, are all
present and it is not easy to deny the interesting

jazz soc starts winter season
After a four-month summer vacation the Vancouver New
Jazz Society will march into its winter season at 8:30 p.m.
Sunday, October 14, to the rousing, two-beat strains of Lance
Harrison's Dixieland band. The show will be the first of a
new series of concerts to take place at Isy's Supper Club
every second Sunday night.
Lance Harrison, who has been playing his clarinet in
Vancouver ever since his Lord Byng high school days, is
probably best known to Vancouverites for his radio and
television work. He has just completed a T.V. series called
"Some of Those Days," a show depicting the era when dixieland was the "modern jazz" of the day.
Also featured on the program with Harrison will be
songstress Pat Walker. The show is open to the public on a
donation basis.

effects the composer obtains from the combination of piano and percussion, and yet somehow
the total result falls short of providing a sense
of completion.
Any blame must rest with the composer
rather than with the performers, however. Ed-
wina Heller and Irene Rosenberg delivered
highly competent keyboard readings, complemented by Bill Good and Don Adams on percussion. Irwin Hoffman's task in coordinating
the various elements through the score's tricky
tempi was most difficult of all. That the performance as a whole emerged cohesively can be
largely credited to him.
Duver Symphony Orchestra
In the concluding item on Sunday's program,
Brahms' Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, conductor
and orchestra faced a work both titanic in concept and tragic in its implications. Its great
dramatic force and passionate intensity have
even tempted some critics to call it "Beethoven's
Fortunately Mr. Hoffman chose a broad,
large-scaled approach to the work. And yet it
must be added that he missed imbuing it with
the quality of grandeur it can reveal to the listener. Technical errors could be noted of course,
such as occasional weak entrances and a tendency (prevalent also in the Dohnanyi composition)
for the violins to thin out in the upper registers.
But more serious was the conductor's failure
to sustain the approach he had set for himself.
While proper stress was given the main themes,
transitional passages and sections such as the
first movement introduction tended to be passed
over unprobed.
As a consequence, while the momentum of
the performance was kept up, a sense of epic
climax failed to generate, and what could have
been a thrilling reading was only a capable one.

We waited for an hour in the mist on Seymour St., and
when we got in we waited for another hour in ciggie smoke.
The Inquisition is a professional-looking cafe with bad paintings hung methodically on the walls. Thanksgiving night the
hard wooden chairs were crammed together so that we were
never sure whose smoke-sore eyes we were rubbing.
But these six guys in overcoats edged in the front door,
and someone in hornrim glasses came out and fixed the mike
hanging over the piano. People gather round and they all begin
to shout. People beat their feet.
The cornet guy came out. He's Nat Adderley several
guys say, and he's wearing slippers and a naughty grin. A girl
in the crowd remembers a thing to do with him in San Francisco.
•      •      •
Then out comes the bass guy. Sam Jones, as it was said,
of international repute. The baritone guy is Yusef Lateef, bald-
headed and quiet, exciting. The drum is young handsome Lewis
Hayes, who sits down and looks at his drumset. The piano guy
is from Vienna, and his name is Joe Zawinul. People remember
his eyes seeing funny, and frightening things across the piano.
The big handsome fat guy is Cannonball. He's the most
exciting stylist in jazz, the hatchet murderer of west coast funk.
He thinks jazz is fun; he thinks you should purge all kinds of
emotions amid the noise of American music. He's from the
American greek democracy.
When Cannonball comes on the stage everyone laughs and
the music starts loud. It's wild; the piece is called "Dizzy's
Business," and the most exciting jazz experience in Vancouver is on.
The Cannonball Adderley Sextet at the Inquisition, featuring
Yusef Lateef and Nat Adderley. Oct. 8 -10.
Most of the audience is made up of squares, but they're
polite, and they enjoy it; and that's alright with Cannonball.
The second number was a savage arabian thing by Lateef, and
for awhile the quiet one (Cannonball calls him The Talented
One) takes over Seymour St. In the next piece he reduces the
spectators to bent-over silence with a rapt flute rendition of
"Angel Eyes." Later on he pulled out all the stops and rests
with a home made bamboo flute, and with a goddam OBOE.
Cannonball started right with the hippie set and the
Thanksgiving night group who couldn't get into the Cave. He
talked. He opened with a put down of hippity and this settled
the hicks and the cats who know that's the hippiest thing there
is to do in this 1962 America time of he braintrust, when even
Jackie Kennedy lends the left hand of the Whitehouse in a
theatrical handshake. From then on it was easy and necessary
to blast with the old CB numbers from the years little back
when the man was hailed as king of sock and soul.
So we got "Work Song," elemental detonation by Nat, ole
"Cannonball," themepiece of onetime, wherein Cannonball, as
he says snorting, plays as long as he likes, and the immortal
and dirty "Sack O' Woe."
• • *
But the big trauma of the night was a brandnew number
ealled "Primitivo." Cannonball's heavy grabbing fingers on the
alto made a jungle of sound, and Lateef cleared it away with
mysterious aboriginal beauty on the bamboo flute and the
goddam OBOE. It was beautiful, if you want to get into the
technical nomenclature of jazz, bo.
And he sent them all away with the exhausting "Bohemia

In the last five years there have been three jazz happenings in this town. First was MJQ at the sad old Georgia Aud;

The voice came through the door

An old man with shaven head,
wearing a black smock with no

evilly towards the rest of us at

As though prompted by his
words the peddler spat twice,
quickly, into the darkness beyond the doorway. A momentary quiet invaded the room as
Hsieh swallowed a lump of the

Reaching into his back pocket the old man pulled out a
chop stick and began stirring the

gnarled fingers like incense

filled our rice bowls to the brim
with his brew. The meat was

asked him in halting Mandarin.

too quickly for me to understand and Hsieh had to translate:

He says if we want he can cook
one for us but we have to catch
our own dog, otherwise the
price is higher."

UofT refuses to support
a James Meredith Fund
TORONTO (CUP)—The University of Toronto's Student
Administrative Council has overwhelmingly refused to support a James Meredith Fund proposed by the University
College Literary and Athletic Society.
The fund, according to chairman Gary Perly, is to raise
money which will'be sent to the New York headquarters of
the National Association for the Advancement of Colored
People in honor of James Meredith.
Meredith is a Negro student currently embroiled in a
bitter integration battle caused by his entrance to the previously all-white University of Mississippi.
Council members criticized the  proposal as  "hastily-
conceived and hazy in its details."
