Pickpockets Work;
Clubs Grab Unwary
From the trampoline out front to the Jazz Band in the
rear, UBC's Armory was jumping Thursday with the 1960
edition of Clubs' Day.
More than 50 clubs displayed
themselves and their wares to
a mob which packed the hall
irom 12:30 until the doors
closed  at   2:30.
Clever booths, music and
w ierd sounds, loudspeakers,
pamphlet hawkers, pretty girls
and pitchmen were used to lure
unwary frosh into the various

Even the Red Cross was
there: three nurses gave their
pitch for  Blood   Drive.

entranceway, and dead ahead
were the political booths.
A new party, the Allied Integrity Front, joined Liberal,
Conservative, CCF and Social
Credit Clubs in this section.

tion" of Canadian politics.

of their sets flanked by floor
to ceiling curtains, and next
door rival Mussoc tried to sign
up singers.
Ethnic clubs ranging from
Japan to France showed elements of the cultures they represent, and academic groups
demonstrated chemistry, physics, archeology and allied fields
to prospective  members.
Debaters, philosophers and
committee workers also tried to
strengthen their ranks with
new blood.
Religious groups were there
too, as were sports clubs, fencers, squash players, creative
writers and anybody else with
enough pull to get a booth.
The Ubyssey was not represented.
Also missing were two highlights of last years display, the
award winning Prism booth and
the enigmatic construction erected by Free Love Soc.
Clubs' Day for I960 has left
behind it only the wreckage of
the booths, which were stripped
bare by 4 p.m., and the swelling membership lists and treas-

Short supplies of many types
of blood will be boosted by the

Such shortages could cost

President Norman MacKenzie today urged world leaders
to throw aside extravagant and emotional nationalism in an
effort to bring about    peaceful co-existence.
In his annual address to
students and faculty Dr. MacKenzie said recent statements
by world leaders have indicated selfishness, lack of idealism and ignorance of the needs
of the world.
He described the present as
the most dangerous period in
history — one in which, overnight, the peoples of the world
could face total annihilation.
"Unless all of us — black,
^hite, yellow and brown —
capitalists, communists and citizens of a hundred or more
nations — can realize that our
only hope lies in some form
of peaceful co-existence . .
then I am certain difficult and
bad days  lie  ahead."
The president urged well developed nations to supply both
material and intellectual aid to
underdeveloped countries.
He suggested students consider spending a period after
graduation in one of the underdeveloped areas.
"We in Canada enjoy the benefits of a mature civilization;
we are richly, almost extravagantly endowed with physical
comforts; and we have opportunities of a creative kind which
are denied the peoples of other
University graduates have a
duty to place their knowledge
at the disposal of others in need
of assistance, he said.
"There are, in other countries, millions of human beings,
who live on the brink of star^
vation, have little hope for tomorrow, who are ignorant,
wretched and unhappy.
"Unless we, who have so
much of so many things are prepared to help them . . . there
can be little to look forward to
in this world except strife, disorder,   and   human   suffering."
In commending the efforts of

In regard to the University
itself, Dr. MacKenzie predicted
a student body of 15,000 by
1965 and said no effort must
be spared to continue with physical expansion.
He said he hoped the opening
of four new buildings, the Buchanan extension, the Library
wing, the Biological Sciences
wing, and the Wesbrook building extension would help alleviate a critical hortage of space
on campus.
He thanked the student body

On Letters
It is the policy of The Ubyssey to welcome all contri-
-, buttons—whether in the form of letters-to-the-Editor, contributed articles, or guest editorials.
Our attitude towards such contributions is in accord
with an editorial printed in the Vancouver Daily Province
July 16, 1959.
"One of the most valuable features in any newspaper
. comes not from the staff but from the readers—the letters
to the editor.
"Here is a daily forum for the exchange of ideas, a
.    place in which people can air their beefs, a sort of thermometer of public opinion which officialdom, if it is wise, will
. watch attentively.
"We like receiving letters to the editor, and we like
: printing them—the more the better. But there are, inevitably, certain rules about what can and cannot appear in
the letters column.
"Some of these rules are the general ones governing
the entire contents of any newspaper. These exclude matter that is scurrilous or obscene, potentially libelous or
"There are other rules which we apply to the letters
column because we ourselves think them fair and wise.
"We have to reserve the right to control the style and
length of what appears in our columns.
"Because we want the column to reflect as broad a
cross section of opinion as possible, we like letters to be
short. Some that we receive would occupy a full column
from top to bottom of this page if we were to set them in
type. We don't run them.
"We do not (like)   'open letters' addressed  to other
action would be in the public interest.)
people." (We do,11 however, print them, if we feel that such
"Nor do we like carbon copies of letters addressed to
other publications. And one of the surest ways of keeping
.a letter out_of a newspaper is to write: "I dare you to
publish this' or 'I know you will not have the courage to
print this.' After all, we have our pride.
"We throw anonymous letters where they belong—
in the wastebasket. (We will, however, print letters under
pseudonym in certain cases, provided we are aware of the
identity of the writer.)
"And, finally, thfere are some letters we do not publish
for the simplest of all reasons—we can't read them.

On Phrases
Campus orators Who wish to appeal not too subtly to the
emotions of their audiences would do well to study the techniques of Phil Gaglardi.
Gaglardi may be uneducated, but he is well schooled in
the art of oratorical psychology.
Phrases such as "solid progress," "firm foundations,"
'wealth of natural resources," "dynamic policy," and "stable
economy" cannot help but strike a responsive chord in any
Deep down inside, these are the things the people want.
When Mr. Gaglardi says that B.C. will be the industrial
center of the entire country, who can help being proud?
When he says that we have a larger road system than any
other province, who can resist worshipping at Mr. Gaglardi's
When he says that his government is interested in our
welfare, how can we help but be thankful?
Yes, Mr. Gaglardi knows what we want dee^ down inside;
and he knows the words to tell us about it.
I glanced down the front
page of last Friday's newspaper to find the headline
"Girl Writes Poetry, Dies". In
the slick, unfeeling, rather
vulgar journalistic style of so
many of today's newspapers
it read:

"It was about how the steel
webs of the bridge framed the

flow of the tide.
"It   was   pretty   good   stuff.

just beyond the south pier and

"Mrs. Elizabeth Muso, her

"We were all terribly shocked and puzzled by her death,"
she said. "There was no indication that anything was wrong.

was perfectly happy (oh

of your words!), laughing, joking and teasing."

Putting down the paper  I
thought of all the dispassioned
cries  that I and  others  had
inglessness of life.
But I knew that there was not
one of us who did not feel a horrible pang a this utter wastefulness. Not one would not have
given a great deal to have gotten to that girl five minutes before she jumped. Not one of us
would not have unquestionably
believed the pleas he would
have made to try o save that
girl's life. Not one would not
have felt that questions about
the meaning of it all were
somehow irrelevant in comparison with the desire to make
that lonely girl enjoy her most
precious life.

Barbarianistic Beat
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I was extremely disappointed, to learn that Radsoc planned to discontinue the program "Works of the Master."
During the last two years, I
have enjoyed this program because of the favorable change

that you will receive enough
student support to make the
need for "good music" obvious
to the executive of Radsoc.

The Ubyssey,

I noted in Tuesday's

honored with another gym on
campus. I won't argue as to
whether or not we need this

think something should be
done about those of us who
like to play hockey and skate.
There must be those on campus who would like to see
some suitable ice rink closer
to campus than Kerrisdale

sport, it seems funny that one
of Canada's largest Univer-
jsities doesn't have a square
foot of ice on the campus.

Maureen Forrester, who win
be appearing at the Queen
Elizabeth Theatre on October
15th and 16th, under the auspices of the Vancouver Symphony Society, says that the
most important single element
in a song is the words. If you
are surprised to hear a musical artist rate the wor,ds above
the music, 1 should explain
that she continues to ask us to
reflect a moment on the way a
song is created. The composer
always starts with the words.
They are his original inspiration and the foundation of his
work. His purpose is to underscore and enhance the mood
or drama of the poet's text. In
his musical setting, he will
attempt to give each word an
added dimension of meaning
or emotion.
Boyd   Neel   Concert
The Vancouver Women's
Musical Club sponsored a well-
presented concert of classical
music by Dr. Boyd Neel and
the Hart House Symphony Orchestra Wednesday at The
Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
The concert, although only
two hours long, covered a large
variety of string compositions.
From the mathematical and
aesthetic perfection of the clas-
sical child-genius Wolfgang
Mozart to Benjamin Britten's
whimsically humorous "Simple
Symphony", the orchestra performed admirably, carrying it
all off with nary a hitch, even
a fast and furious Tchaikovsy
overture, where there was
plenty of room for mistakes.
It seemed to me that the
more difficult the piece that
was being played, the more
easily did Dr. Neel and the orchestra perform it.
The program was conducted
and played well throughout,
and the audience was unusually
enthusiastic, although pitifully
.small. It is a crying shame that
this unique performance of
good music fell on so many
empty seats at the Queen Elizabeth.
The concert began with
works by George Handel, and
his rich, never-too-coldly-technical music was carried with
extreme care by the orchestra.
Altogether, nine pieces by Handel were played, and each was
treated beautifully by Dr. Neel.
I particularly noticed the
booming bass harmonies of
Handel's "Water Music", played extremely well by the three
men who made up the orchestra's bass section.
I suppose I am expected to
rave about the orchestra's rendition of Mozart's "Eine Kleine
Nachtmusik" I won't because
this piece of music sounds at
all times exactly the same, no
matter who is playing it. I can
neither recommend nor condemn Dr. Neel's performance.
The way I see it, "Eine Kleine
Nachtmusik" would sound no
different if it were played on
a kazoo, or by a Jamaican steel
band. I can only say that the
Hart House orchestra made it
sound just as it always sounds.
Just as the strict classicism
was becoming a wee bit stuffy,
the orchestra embarked on
Maurice Blackburn's deeply
moving, almost earthy "Suite
for Strings" finale. This, aside
from being a completely enthralling piece of music was, in
my estimation, a fine example
of good programming. Blackburn's finale, being based more
on the emotional school than
on the classic, provided a well-
timed relief from the mathematical Mozart.
Full of sprightly enthusiasm,
Blackburn's finale seemed to
spur the orchestra on, and the
result was, to say the least surprising.
Dr. Neel and the orchestra
also played a series of the Rumanian themes of Bela Bartok.
:I prefer not to comment on
these, as Bela Bartok's music
does not intrigue me in the
slightest, and at times actually
bores me.
The major work of the evening was Benjamin Britten'j delightful "Simple Symphony",
a work containing such passages as the "Boisterous Bouree",
the "Playful Pizzicato", the
"Sentimental Sarabande", and
the "Frolicsome Finale". Apart
from his ability to write cute
little titles for musical pieces,
Mr. Britten also has a rare genius for turning out first-rate
concert music.
What with Britten's exciting
music, and the extremely good
w a y it was handled by Dr.
Neel, this made a wonderful
finale for the show.
It has been close to eleven
years now that a man named
Eric Blair finally died after
suffering from tuberculosis in
the last years of lonely existence in a bleak post war London. Behind him he left a just-
finished novel, the most terrifying that I have ever read, a
short political satire, two autobiographical commentaries, a
play, another novel, and a few
dozen essays. It seems strange
that this man who we know as
George Orwell, and who never
considered himself primarily a
literary artist or was considered by the cities as such may,
when the dust of subjectivity
has cleared in a few hundred
years, turn out to be the greatest literary artist that this century has yet produced.
Orwell was one of those rare
men that put facts before dogma. And it is his common
sense, his ability to see things
as they are, and not his artistic
ability that the reader first notices. In the years between ana
after the two wars he was practically alone among the intellectuals to see through all
sham, whereever it might be—
whether it was the sham of
Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany,
or Twentieth Century England.
For Orwell was almost unique,
to have lived under the conditions he so emphatically complained about.
For, as a lowly scholarship
student at Eton he knew the
horrible pettiness of an English
private school, as a member of
the Imperial Service in India
he had been a part of the hypocrisy and inhumanity that went
with it. Having been down and
out in Paris and London his
words about poverty did not
have the hypocritical ring of a
well fed professional "do good-
er". Having fought in the Spanish Civil War he had seen the
horrors of Facism and the betrayal of Communism. He, in
short, knew of what he spoke.
Orwell was passionately ho
nest. To compare his attacks on
the socialism thatheso passionately believed in one
would have to imagine a truly
devout Roman Catholic seeing
things from a Protestant's view
without losing his faith. And
for his honesty, Orwell was
hated by the right, ignored by
the centre and disowned by the
Because of Orwell's intense
concern with the political side
of man, one is apt to forget his
abilities as an artist. But it is
as an artist that perhaps Orwell stands best of all.
If we judge an artist on his
ability to make one feel Orwell
must stand high indeed. For
whoever can forget his magnificent descriptions o fthe Anarchists in "HOMAGE TO CATALONIA", his utter poverty
and despair in "DOWN AND
OUT IN LONDON AND PARIS" his utter wretchedness in
But it is on his last two
works, "ANIMAL FARM" and
"1984" that Orwell's fame will
rest. "ANIMAL FARM" is by
far the greatest political satire
in our language. It is more than
j u s t a perfect picture of the
Russian Revolution, it is one of
those rare artistic insights into
human nature. For its theme is
universal, as is its appeal. A
child of 12 can enjoy and understand it as well as a man
of ninety. Two hundred years
from now, if there is still life
on this planet, when the Russian Revolution will have become a vague fact in history,

NFCUS Conference
HALIFAX (CUP) — A proposal for a creative writers'
conference to be held at the
University of Toronto was
passed unanimously by the
NFCUS National Affairs Commission at the Halifax NFCUS
"ANIMAL FARM" will still be
enjoyed by millions.
As for 1984, no one has come
closer to writing a more perfect study of fear. If anyone
should doubt Orwell's ability
as a writer let him try to read
this novel without identifying
himself with main characters
without feeling every fear,
every momentary joy that
Smith goes through. Let him
ask himself if there is in the
entire English language a passage of more utterly and hopelessly terrifying despair than
the final page of the novel.
I have often thought that in
an age which had so much stupidity, childishness, and downright poor craftmanship in its
literature, and so little concern
for the value of Man in its life,
that it would be ironical indeed if Orwell, a person more
concerned with Man than Art,
should be its only artist to
stand the test of time.
.   -... — Garry Nixon
The proposal for the conference which would be held
after Christmas at the University of Toronto was presented
by Peter Dembski of Toronto,
who pointed out to the commission that "this is the kind
of program NFCUS ought to
be sponsoring."
"Creative writing is an important phase of Canadian culture," he said, "and encouragement of creative writing at
the various Canadian Universities has been largely restricted to programs initiated by
and for the individual " University."
The Toronto plan called for
a three-day conference with
panel discussions and guest
speakers, during which time
theoretical problems would be

the plenary unanimously
passed the resolution, when it

The intention of NFCUS, is

With the retire ment of
Louis Applebaum as musical
director of the Stratford Festival, Michael Langham has
announced that the music directorship in 1961 will be
shared by Glenn Gould, pianist; Leonard Rose, cellist; and
Oscar Shumsky, violinist. Ezra
Schabas, special lecturer in
the Faculty of Music at the
University of Toronto and Director of Public Relations for
the- Royal Conservatory of
Music will be music manager.
All have previously been
associated with the Stratford
Festival. Mr. Gould appeared
as soloist during tht seasons
of 1955, 1956, and 1960. Together they provided the Festival
with its two most successful
concerts in the Festival
theatre this summer.
Mr. Schabas, a prominent
clarinetist, played in the Festival . orchestra, 1955-57, and
served as music manager in
the 1958 season.

Calls Re-election
WINNIPEG (CUP) — An unprecedented student election to
replace U. of Manitoba student
president Lindley Abdulah. |
who failed his year, will be beld j
October 3. !
The move to hold the election i
in the fall — instead of allowing the /vice-president to assume ,
the presidency -— came at an I
emergency meeting of the Stu-,
dents' Union. ''
Abdulah was forced to resign'
two weeks ago because he failed supplemental examinations
this summer.
It was the second time he
failed a year at Manitoba.
He may be forced to leave
Canada since he is a Trinidad-
ian and can remain here only
so long as he is in university.

By mere gratuitous fortune, I was present when a rather
youngish, but strong-voiced contingent of Applied Science students moved those bricks and re-erected the pile (like Hearst
and his chapel).
The disadvantage of mob action, from the point of view
of the mob, is that it is so easily exploited by others. Or so it
seems to me. In this instance an anonymous person not of good
will undid what had been done with one push, breaking the
bricks, something which the mob had virtuously avoided and
obviously not intended.
The point is, however, that a structure designed and erected
by engineers (who are urged by their mentors to w.osk;i even
think, using a safety factor of ten) fell down with such ignominious ease.
If a fine is levied, surely this should be the charge.

Manitoba Pressured
It was about 2:30. The University, the Brock and I were
settling into our customary
hour of enervation. Now more
than ever it seemed rich to
sleep. To stare at the oiled window, at the distorted grey images outside. To wonder if one
could sit until Christmas, car
coat on, coffee cup hung on a
finger, and ponder Life in General, a'
I had been approached from
the rear by a large second-Law
man, wise beyond his twenty-
fi^e years, didsfctic but ptingfent:
a sort of collegiate Yogi Bear.
He sat down, jarring the table,
ahd unpeeled four sugar cubes,
declaring as he did so that the
coffee was unique in giving him
the benefits of mouthwash as
well as toothpaste. The cubes he
balanced in his spoon, which he
then: filled with coffee.
"The way the sugar falls —
that will show me where my
love lies."
The sugar fell towards me.
"Story of my life", he said, and
he bent the spoon double.
"This place is dead", I muttered.
"Like, hell it is."
Taken aback, I started to discourse on student apathy.
"kookee here, Young Man",
h& interrupted. "Do you want to
go back to high school Or emigrate to the land of the free
where every student is required
td cheer above four decibels at
very football game? Then go.
Take your rah-rah and leave me
in peace. And take all those committees for the promulgation of
Campus Spirit with you."
He leaned forward intently.
"I've heard the Cassandras cry
apathy for six years. Why doesn't anyone listen? Because
they're too busy going to university, and having their own kind
or! fun. You know how graduates
say they didn't see UBC's tradition until they were two years
away from the place? Same with
spirit. Each little publicity officer of each little effort that flops
on campus moans about apathy.
These people think 'you're either
with me or you're apathetic'."
"This campus is just too large
for the energy and spirit to be
fcteused on any one activity, be
it Blood Drive or basketball. Yet
the Cheerleaders still want to
h6ar the frenzied mindless roar
of 11,000 voices whenever they
raise their arm. Baz faz, I say."
"I admit only one correction
to' my arguement. This campus
could use a Jokers' Club. All
those who feel aimless and swift
ahd proud could vent themselves
in a bit of discerning horseplay.
Now excuse me. I've got an appointment in town to do some

Birds Fly The Goejp;
Clash With Huskies
UBC's Birds fly to Saskatoon
to meet their first Canadian opposition of the year, the University   of  Saskatchewan   Huskies.
After playing their first two
games of the 1960 season under
American rules, the Birds are
having a hard time adjusting
to the Canadian rules.
Under Canadian rules the
game is not as wide open as
under American rules. ' This
should help the slow-moving
The game should prove to be
a hard-fought one, as Saskatch-f
ewan  has improved immensely
since last year.
The game could be trying for
coach Gnup, as the 'Birds don't
seem to know their assignments. This is partially due to
the switch from American to
Canadian rules.
The Birds will be playing
this game without the services
of standout tackle Denny
Argue, who is out for the remainder of the season with aj
shoulder seperation. They have 1

Athletic managers Monday, Gym
Room 216. A 55-yard individual
butterfly swim event will be run
on Monday.
Bbotball is currently confused: two colleges in the East
are refusing to play post-season ball, and Manitoba is refusing
to play, period.
This means a Canadian college final is doubtful.
Earlier in the year the students of the U. of Manitoba fought
a useless battle against their own Students' Council to keep college
football alive on their campus. Despite a referendum, strongly
in favour of the issue, Council declined to field a team.
This seems odd, to say the least, especially after Manitoba's
students each agreed to slip their council five bucks for any possible inconveniences.
Rumor had it last winter that the Manitoba Council felt a winter sports arena would be of greater importance. This however is
neither here nor there in view of the fact that the students clearly
showed their preference.
Aside from the undesirable effect this has on the league in
general. Manitoba's.withdrawal has created a real problem for the
prairie schools. They are now pressed harder than ever for competition. This is, however, not a problem for this campus' team,
Which can always count on a good fight whenever they cross the
forty-ninth parallel.
But the WCIAU has drawn its secret weapon. Pressure is
being put on Manitoba to have a team ready by '61 or withdraw
from the Union.
Speculation has it they will comply.
Back to the football season without a play-off. In June of this
year, a meeting of college athlete officials, Dean Mathews, who
represented the WCIAU, reported that two of Eastern Canada's
universities were against post-sasoh play.
These universities have since then softened their stand and
there is a good chance that they will withdraw their earlier decision. Anyhow, Dean Mathews and others interested in the big
game are fighting for playoffs.
