UBC backs down
from grid final
Athletic officials say
cost prohibits playoff
UBC has turned down a University of Alberta challenge for
a western collegiate football playoff.
• UBC athletic director Bus
Phillips said UBC hasn't got the
money to spend on the final.
Alberta issued the challenge
after the U of A Golden Bears
and Thunderbirds were tied for
first place at the end of Western Canadian Intercollegiate
Athletic Association league play.
Both teams won five games
and lost one.
Phillips also ^disclosed Wednesday there is a possibility of
an east-west collegiate football
final this year.
But it depends on two things

Last minute decision hit
• Gnup    said    UBC ; budgeted I     There   would  be  two "bowl-
only   for   expenses'   in   league I type" games, Phillips said   The
Fitness Council will decide in
the next two days whether it
wants to finance the final If
it refuses, there will be no
national final.
The other factor is whether
a western finalist can be -determined.
UBC football coach Frank
Gnup said Wednesday his team
would play Alberta, if Alberta
pays all expenses.
"But they want us to pay
half," he said. "That would run
us over $2,000 and we don't
have the money."-
VICIOUS TACKLE Wendy Gibson, Nursing 2, is in good shape
for today's game. The Home Wreckers meet the Pan-handlers
in the Stadium today at noon.
Rebrin goes ahead
with Telegram suit
Irina Rebrin, Slavonic Studies lecturer, will proceed with
her libel suit against the Toronto Telegram.
Notice was filed by her law
yer   Gordon   Dowding   at   the
court house Tuesday.
The pending trial has been
delayed by a number of pretrial hearings, applications and
appeals, since early 1961.
: A deportation order is still
out against Miss Rebrin, who is
permitted to remain in Canada,
at the discretion of the minister
of citizenship and immigration,
Richard A. Bell, to complete her
suit against the Toronto Telegram.
Miss Rebrin is suing The Telegram, publisher John Bassett,
reporter Peter Dempson and an
Ottawa reporter, Richard Jackson, for an alleged libelous story
which appeared in the Toronto
Telegram, March 1960.
. Barrister Dowding refused to
discuss the case.
The minister could have de-
. ported her but he didn't and no
reasons were given. Brazil offered to take her but now her
permit has expired. When the
libel case is closed her only appeal will be to the minister to
set aside the deportation order,
allowing her to stay.
The minister at the time of
the deportation order was Mrs.
Ellen Fairclough.
Ian Sterling, local department
of immigration authority, said,
"No comment from the Vancouver level."
Miss Rebrin is still lecturing
at the University.

Phillips suggested ohe method
of    finding    a    western    final
vould be to ask directors of the

■ should represent the West.
"A    different    method    than
i usual of selecting the western
representative will have to be
decided without having a playoff if there is a final," Phillips
Both Gnup and Phillips say
the matter should have been
settled long ago, and not in the
final  week of the season.
They also agree that a clause
for playoffs will have to be
written into the constitution
next year at the annual meeting in May.
Phillips said also there is
talk in the future of having
playoffs for the four Canadian
intercollegiate  football  leagues.
It would set up on a national
basis like the "bowl" system
in the U.S. The four leagues will
include the WCIAA, the Big
Four collegiate, the Maritimes
and the Ontario-Quebec league.
leagues would probably alternate in playing each other every
year. At the moment it is
thought that the . two winners
of these "bowl-type" games
would not play each other be
cause of the cost.

Said President Macdonald:
"Dean MacPhee's retirement

A University? Where? Here?
A correspondent last week suggested that
UBC, like some otiher Canadian universities,
is nothing more than an extension pf high
We must agree—and point out at the same
time that UBC is probably one of the worst
We would suggest the main reason is that
UBC is a commuter campus.
Only twenty percent of UBC's enrolment
live in on-campus residences where they have
any hope of gaining a feeling of the atmosphere a university is supposed to convey.
This is unfortunate.
To our way of thinking, a university is not
Supposed to be a place where one arrives tired
ind angry after fighting his way across town
in heavy morning traffic.
It should not be a place where the student's
main concern is parking, overcrowded classrooms, poor finances and the building of bureaucracies.
But UBC, unfortunately, lends itself to this
type of existence because of its proximity to
Vancouver and "The Community."
The University, instead, should be a place
where students can forget the world around
them. They should have the time and facilities
to indulge completely in academic pursuits.
It should not be a place where timetables
are deliberately set up to allow the student to
beat a traffic rush, or get to a part-time job
on time.
It should not be a place students have to
leave so they don't miss dinner.
It should be complete in itself and the students should be allowed the privilege of losing
themselves in it.
But UBC, like many other Canadian universities is surrounded by a big city and must
run on a schedule. Time and society are not
things for contemplation here, but things that
have to be dealt with, unfortunately, every day.
This is not the role of a university.
A bit of culture in Old Brock
1     Frustration.
This is the common feeling of journalistic
$nd other writers who try to communicate
mood, emotional experience or intellectual delight.
This is the feeling that results from any
attempt to get across the real value of the annual International House Fall Fair.
The fair provided for those who attended a
mood of exotic delight, the emotional experience that comes from the appreciation of real
talent and, perhaps, a little better understanding of other cultures.
Moving music, singing and dancing and the
opportunity to talk to persons from other nations: all these were there.
But not enough students attended. And of
those who did, many made it their once-a-year
concession to culture. Their once-a-year visit
to those outside their own cultural group.
International House provides an opportunity for all to enlarge their experiences. It provides more than meeting place. Countless programs are staged that approximate the value
Of the big Fall Fair.
The total lack of inhibitions shown by many
of the students from other nations shames us.
They display their talents without self-consciousness. A sort of internal joy seems to
bubble from many of them in song and dance.
Besides them, British Columbians are grey
people, deprived of the cultural heritage of
their ancestors and without an adequate replacement.
Natural joy does not result in spontaneous
gaiety. It doesn't seem to exist. The artificial
alcoholic joy that characterizes Canadians has
something grim and unjoyous about it.
That's what we're trying to say. We should
mingle with these people and get to know them
because they have something to give us.
Fable interpreted
Today we print a charming letter from poetess Phyllis Webb.
In it is a delightful little story about a boy
and his spontaneous reaction to a work of art.
Whether it is true or false is of no consequence. The story is a fable.
In the great tradition of creative artists
everywhere, it's message is symbolic and, to
many, likely to be obscure.
In fact, it is saying something like this: The
Ubyssey, by suggesting that the modern "art"
hanging in Brock is enigmatic and perhaps
meaningless, has set itself up as the representatives of Philistines of UBC.
Miss Webb doesn't like this Philistinism.
She's glad everybody doesn't read The Ubyssey.
We're glad she reads the paper, even if to
use it as a horrible example in her English
And we hope we've interpreted her letter so
everyone can understand it. But we bet she's
not grateful.

Letters to the Editor
"Let's see now; hardtack, water, charts  .  . ,"
,*_,^1-_(^5*.as. i
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The other day I had a few
- moments    to    spare    between
classes   which    I    spent    idly
looking out  a window of the
Buchanan Building down onto
the   quadrangle.   It   was   the
usual busy scene of that time.
Suddenly,    wheeling    through
the students, came a very small
boy on a tricycle, a very determined small boy. But something caught his eye—the statue of the panner for gold. He
stopped,   looked   at   it,   then
made  a quick tour of inspection around it on his tricycle;
like any knowledgable aesthe-
tician, he wanted  to see  the
thing   from   all    angles.   But
that wasn't enough. He got off
his trike, patted the nice man
on the  knee  (checking to  see
that   he   was   complete   in  all
parts), and then climbed up to
him, put his arms around the
man's    neck,    and    whispered
something in his ear. I rather
doubt    that    he   was    asking
what price gold was catching
these days. Then he got down,
gave a final pat, bid a friendly
adeiu,   and jingled off to the
group of dancers in the middle
of the quad.
I wanted to run down and
say to him, "come and see the
paintings we've got in the
Brock Link!" If he had seen
them he would probably have
licked them, or smelled them,
or kissed them, or wept. Anyhow he would have responded!
But the bell rang.
But I went to my class
cheered in the certain knowledge that not everyone reads
The Ubyssey.
Yours truly,
English    Department.

Dear Sir:

your newspaper very little to
Your coverage of the Nigel
Morgan speech gives me much
to blame.
When an intelligent man
makes observations about Canadian society which contain
as much truth as did Morgan's,
I believe that those who did
not attend the speech are en
titled to have them adequately reported.
Instead, one reads only of
the actions of various immature "wise-guys" who lacked!
either the concentration or the
intelligence to appreciate the
I   submit  that  the   students
of  this   University   would   enjoy a digest of Morgan's speech
much more than your attempt-
at sensationalism.
You underestimate your fellow students.
Yours truly,

Marches fun
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I would like to commend
the Nuelear Disarmers on their
wisdom in preventing an expert in political science and
international relations from
presenting his obviously unqualified opinion re the feasa-
bilities of disarmament.
Surely philosophers and
chemical engineers are more
conversant with the complex
problems that a disarmament agreement would create.
So let's ignore these so-called
experts     like     Dr.     Holsti.
Marches are more fun.
Yours truly,
Arts 4.
Editor, !
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Under the Buildings and
Grounds regulations, the students living in the permanent
residences are required to use
parking lot "A". While the
location of this lot is quite
good, the condition of the road
leading out to the street connecting with Marine Drive has
fallen into a deplorable condition.
If this condition is an indication of how our $5.00 is being used, surely there is justification for levelling criticism
against the department responsible.
Therefore, we ask that this
situation be rectified as quickly as possible since the condition of our cars is approaching
that of the road.
Yours truly,

DU appeal to zoning board
in last chance to save house
Delta Upsilon is hanging onto
its Kerrisdale fraternity house
by the fingernails.
City council refused the fraternity's appeal Tuesday to keep
its house in a district zoned only
for one-family dwellings.
The city was advised that the
fraternity lacked the legal
power to obtain this permission, said city clerk Ron Thompson.
"So the society (DU) has one
chance left," said Thompson.
"An appeal to the . zoning
"The board has the power to
relax the zoning bylaws, generally for a given period of
DU's multiple-occupancy bylaw infraction came up before
city council Oct 9, when six
neighbors of the fraternity
house, at 2867 West Thirty-
seventh, protested "noisy all-
night parties."
One neighbor complained her
small son "smelled like a brewery" after playing with beer
bottles strewn over the fraternity house's lawn.
C. K. Spragg, secretary of the
zoning board, said the fraternity will have to examine the
city charter to determine if it
has the right of appeal.
"If they have this right," said
Spragg; "they'll have to go
through a formal appeal.
"And then it's strictly up to
the board."

Canadian Opera Company's presentation of
"La Boheme,' Thursday, November 29.
Tickets now on sale at A.M.S.
• Page 4
Thursday, Nover
VICTOR BRAUN (Marcello) in the Canadian Opera Company's La Boheme.
Bergman's "Through A Glass
Darkly" (despite the annoying
and unnecessary English dubbing) is, by far, the best film
playing    in    Vancouver.
Bergman again forces outstanding performances out of
his actors: Harriet Anderson
(Karin), Gunnar Bjornstrand
(David), Max von Sydow
(Martin), and Lars Passgard.
"Through A Glass Darkly"
(the title is from I Corinthians
13.12) is, once again, Bergman's search for the meaning
of life, art and God. The search
is two-fold. The main search
is for God which is conducted
by Karin and her brother
Peter. The search for a mean
ing to life and arts is made by
Karin's father,, David. After
cutting himself off from his
family he finds that his art of
writing novels suffers also.
Karin's husband Martin doesn't
look for, or find, a meaning to
anything since his main concern is for his wife who is an
incurable schizophrenic.
The old man reconciles himself
with life and' David also reconciles himself with life after
the final scene in which he
moralizes with his son. Peter
himself concludes that God is
love as shown by his final
statement, "Father spoke to
me!" Karin, in her madness,
confuses God with a helicopter
and concludes that God is a
spider. We can see from this
IN     1
Ptescttftioh Optical
that God is only what we make
Him to be, whether he is love
or merely a vicious spider.
The cinematography in
"Through A Glass Darkly" is
simple, yet deceivingly simple.
When Peter rushes through
the house looking for his sister the camera is trained on
the front door, looking outward. While Peter runs upstairs and down the camera
remains immobile, revealing
nothing and emphasizing his
Even in the incest scene in
the beached wreck the film
relies on picture composition
rather than camera movement
to create the tone and feeling
of a scene. The cameraman,
Sven Nykvist, is excelled only
by Gunnar Fischer, another
Swedish   photographer.
What more can I say?
"Through A Glass Darkly" is
a good Bergman, and that is
sufficient recommendation for
any film. The direction is, as
usual, flawless. The acting is
good, except for a few melodramatic weak spots and the
photography, typically Swedish   and   unsurpassable.

Yes, that's what I said. Thanks to the
efforts of UBC's Special Events Committee, the Canadian Opera Company will
be presenting one performance of Puccini's opera, La Boheme, in the Auditorium on Thursday, Oct 29 at 8:30 p.m.
This performance will be part of the
fourth transcontinental tour of Canada's
first professional opera company. Some
of Canada's finest singers will appear
under the direction of Herman Geiger
Tourel in a full dress presentation of the
English translation of the opera by Ruth
and Thomas Martin.

it." And this is the key to Boheme's perennial popularity. From first note to
last its continuous interweaving of music
and story never fails to hold our attention.

SHIELA PIERCEY (Mimi) in the Canadian Opera Company's La Boheme.
by george  bowering
Last week your obstreperous
(savant) cast, a lachrymous eye
at those folksingers so dedicated to their artcult that they
forget all about the folk. There
is nothing so silly as the operation of folksinging on the star
system. A buckskin blouse will
never take the place of a good
vocal rendition, as the commercial wantons call it.
I guess what binds my assurance is self-consciousness in
art and entertainment. I burn
when I see an artist more wrapped up in his own godliness
than in communicating some-
thing in his chosen language.
If the first artist had shared
that kind of attitude he would
have said. "To heck with Light;
let there just foe me."
Folk(?) singers aren't the
only people who number this
special brand of egomaniacs
among them. Jazzmen do it,
too. In contrast with a Cannon-
ball Adderley who plays jazz
as if he has an audience, we
have a Miles Davis who now
tends to play jazz as if he has
a despised group of worshippers. Now, Miles Davis is a
mighty good horn blower,
though not as interesting as he
was in 1947 when he was learn
ing from Charles Parker. But
he mixes too much public image funk in with his music.
That's how we get an album
of self-indulgence and soulful
artistry such as Sketches of
It worked, of course, and
every working girl has it in her
record library alongside Frank
Sinatra and the original score
from West Side Story.
Selfconseious poobah is prob*
, ably most obvious in a thing
called the Art Movie. And here,
too, you can witness a noncom-
mitant phenomenon. The more
selfconseious the artist gets, the
more easily his selfconseious
audience will fall for the stuff.
Well, what is an Art Movie?
Usually it is something vaguely
European and often sexy, but
these are not the important
things. The important things
are the sensitivity and eccentricity with which a film di.
rector can turn the materials
of life into a kind of perceptual
originality, and lose the viewer
in a maze of black and white
acrosticism. The trouble is that
all this effort usually results in
a plan that varies less from
masterpiece to m a s t e rpiece
than does the life adventure of
the Three Stooges.
There was a flikeur a few
years back called something or
other Cantabile, and it was a
paradigm of the form. It involved a Frenchman and a
Frenchwoman who cast significant looks at one another across
a cafe for most of the first reel,
then a long walk by the canal
for the woman, then a long
walk by the canal for the man,
then a lot of rain, then a silent
tryst of significant glances and
mumbled monosyllables in an
old abandoned house, then a
series of closer and closer close-
ups till the faces started looking like morning porridge in
the pocking stage, then a view
of the sky where the trees were
bending under the rainy breeze.
In the cafe after the movie,
all the Art Movie devotees
were sipping Italian coffee and
exchanging significant glances
and talking in artmovie monotones and adjustng eyes for
closer and closer closeups.
Some of these same people
are the selfconseious coffee
drinkers who sit in the UBC
cafeteria and think about writing letters to The Ubyssey describing their views of selfconseious columnists,  right?

Butt's end not in sight
no SUB committee decision
The Student Union Building
planning committee will not
reach a decision on Porter Butts'
recommendations until February.
Dean Feltham, committee
head, said Wednesday: "When
you are spending over $2.5 million, you don't accept anything
until you analyse it and investigate fully."
The committee will approach
a final decision cautiously,
keeping in mind that Butts is
well recognized, he said.
The joint committee of 10
students and eight faculty members meets today. Their first decision will be to choose a site
for SUB which should be determined within two weeks,
Feltham said.

The public looks on plastic
surgery as a form of magic, a
Vancouver doctor said Wednesday.
Dr. Robert Langston told
pre-med students: "Plastic surgery is nothing more than a
particular type of general surgery concerned almost entirely
with skin and tissues."
He said that there are records
of plastic surgery going as far
back as 2,000 B.C. and the
method used to recreate a
damaged nose was the same
then as it is now.
The progress of plastic surgery has been tremendous in
the last few decades.
Dr. Langston said that even
25 years ago surgeons were unable to transplant more than
one square inch of skin and
could not guarantee that the
transfer   would  be  successful.
And doctors had to use ordinary straight razors because of
a lack of proper instruments,
he added.
Today doctors can transfer
between two and three square
feet of skin and expect the
operation will be 95 per cent
Cosmetic surgery, commonly
known as face lifting, is the
most widely publicized form Of
plastic surgery, he" said. But it
is not the most important.
Dr. Langston said: "There is
much more satisfaction to be
derived from treating people
suffering from burns and congenital defects such as hair lip
and cleft palate."

etc., he said.
Doug Stewart, AMS president,
said, "Butts is being a little
altruistic. The important part
of the report is this sample,
'the SUB should be the hub of
the campus.' But will it be?"
Student Treasurer Malcolm
Scott   said:   "I  haven't  seen  a
copy of the report yet, but I
would say there would.be about
25 pages of facts and figures
and 35 pages of barf in support
of the community union concept
which I don't ascribe to."
"Those 35 pages of barf—or
whatever they are—are extremely valuable from the
point of view of the administration," said Bernie Papke, coordinator of activities.
NFCUS to provide council
with all world affairs advice
Student council now has a political advisor.
The local NFCUS committee was charged with providing
a political advissory function to the AMS on such matters
as the India crisis, at Tuesday's council meeting.
NFCUS will set up a subcommittee of professors and
interested club officials to judge -whether tihe AMS should
take a stand on individual political matters.
The subcommittee would IJhen make its recommendations, and council would decide.
The committee would report on international as well
as local issues such as fee increases or voting rights.
