Chancellor Ross gives Galbraith award

Ian McTaggart Cowon.
"Canada produced about 300
Ph Ds last year," he said.
"B.C. could use about 125 of
these, so the obvious fact is
that we are not producing enough graduate students."
He was speaking with five
others in a panel discussion.
It was the latest of a series
on   Guideposts   to   Innovation.
The others were Dean Neil
Perry, commerce; John Liersch
of the Board of Governors;
Arthur Fouks, board of governors; Dr. W. D. Finn, head of
civil engineering; and Dr. J.
Gibson, health sciences.
Dean Perry said it is desirable to take graduate studies
before entering the professional field.
"My view is that the aim of
j modern society is to invest
in students to obtain their max-
:mum potential. The notion of
a broad, liberal education is
lot what happens.
"The field is narrowed after
increase five-fold, says Dean
the first two years of education. There is nothing to be
gained from specialization
when he reaches that state of
maturity," said McTaggart-
John Liersch of the Board of
Governors said the field of
higher education has become
a problem in numbers because
a larger percentage of students
enter graduate work as the
university grows.
"I cannot help but feel the
tendency in Canada is to downgrade teaching methods, and
upgrade the emphasis on pure
research and publishing," said
"I feel this is bad—the university is here for the student,
and it is a bad trend when research and the pressure to publish become the prime motive
of graduate work," Liersch

merit prize
Grad student Gordon Galbraith is the Alumni's favorite
son today.
Galbraith, 21, is the second
winner of the annual Alumni Student Merit Award.
He was presented with the
award by Chancellor Phyllis
Ross at the annual Student
Alumni banquet in Brock
Thursday   night.
Mrs. Ross said Galbraith
maintained an extremely high
academic average while participating in a wide variety of
campus  activities.
Galbraith is working on his
MA in Political Science.
"This candidate was a unanimous choice of the screening committee for his continuous behind the scene work for
the students and the university as a whole," said Mrs.
Galbraith was a member of
the UBC delegation to the
1963 Canadian Union of Students seminar, and is now
CUS chairman at UBC.
He was instrumental in the
formation and operation of
French Canada Week, said
Mrs.   Ross.
Galbraith has been chairman of Frosh Orientation and
High School Conference as

UBC, was elected to the honorary fraternity Sigma Tau

The Alumni Student Merit
Award was presented for the
first   time   last   year   to   Law
student Dean Feltham.
The award is designed to
give recognition to the outstanding student on campus
by the alumni.
Mrs. Ross said the basic criteria for choosing the recip-
ient of the award are service
to UBC, outstanding academic
achievement and good character.
"The candidate winning the
award this year has all of
these characteristics," said the
The banquet was attended
by 350 students and alumni.
W. H. Mclnnes, a 1903 graduate of Queens University and
one of the founding members
of UBC convocation, hosted 18
students at the banquet.
All of them were winners
of scholarships given by Mclnnes.
The Alumni Association
gave $7,500 to various university organizations at the
banquet including a $2,500
contribution to expenses of
the Olympic rowing team.
The new Student Union
Building got $1,000 and residences another $1,000.
A new graduate scholarship worth $3,000 was added
to the $14,000 presently given
by the Alumni as Norman
MacKenzie regional scholarships.

UBC group opening way
for $40 million project
Seventeen students and two
profs from UBC's Community
Planning department returned
to campus late Wednesday
night after a four-day field
trip studying settlements in
northern Vancouver Island.
The student party was led
by Dr. H. P. Oberlander and
Prof. E. M. Gibson, and accompanied by provincial planning director Don South of the
B.C. Municipal Affairs department and B.C.'s director of
capital planning Tony Roberts.

Travelling   by   charter   bus,
special radio-equipped buses,
logging company crummies—
(two-ton trucks with school bus
bodies), private cars and seine
boat, the group investigated
the townships of Port McNeill,
Port Alice, Port Hardy, Coal
Harbour, Alert Bay and Beaver Cove.
Municipal Affairs Minister
Dan Campbell told the Legislature last week the government will use a paper on the
tour prepared by the students
to gain a new slant on the area.

He said the government has
spent, or plans to spend $37.5
million in opening communication links with the area.
At Port McNeil, the group
transferred to crummie vehicles supplied by Rayonier,
Ltd. for the trip to Port Alice,
he said.
The following day, Monday,
the group toured Port Alice

new Rumble Beach townsite

Higher education will be

He will be discussing the
necessity of post-high school

Back at Port McNeill, they
went by fishing boat to Alert

"We go on field trips every
year," Buchanan said, "but
this is the first time provincial
government has been directly
co-operating with us."
"They are going to pay for
the publication of the report—
cost of reproduction and maps
and so on."
"This shows an increasing
awareness on the part of the
provincial government on the
problems of settlement," said
another planner who took part
in the field trip.

quality of the student and the
quality of the faculty are the
most important aspects of the
graduate schools.
Dean Ian McTaggart-Cowan
said there are two concepts of
graduate work. The first is
that any student beyond the
BA degree is a graduate student.
The second is the concept at
UBC of graduate study as a
specialized work leading to a
higher degree after demonstrated ability, said McTaggart-

Board of Governors member
Arthur Fouks spoke out against
the rationing of poverty.
"We must not have the present graduate schools ration
their already thin potential to
fledgling schools. Consolidation
should be considered for the
best utilization of existing potential," said Fouks.
"Fire and fascination of
teaching seem to be gone.
Money must be found for teachers and lecturers, Guideposts
to Innovation has missed this
point," said Fouks.
Civil engineering head Dr.
W. D. Finn said the expansion
of graduate studies can be for
the wrong reasons and it must
be for need, not because of a
forced impetus.
• •    •
"We cheat our students if
we try to give a competitive
program without the human
resources and facilities. What
is it worth, for advanced degrees? A person is about
thirty years old by the time he
acquires a fh D. A student
must have a far reaching view
economically to embark on this
program. Most of the faculty
at UBC are Ph Ds, and you
know how dissatisfied we are,"
Finn said.
Finn said that the primary
purpose of teachers is to make
a living.
• •   •
"The question now is whether research is to be in a university atmosphere, or under
government control. Ottawa is
at present talking of this," said
Dr. J. Gibson of Health Services.
"If the universities do not
create a favourable atmosphere
for research, then they deserve
to lose it. Graduate students in
our universities are the best
form of national defence Canada has," said Dr. Finn.

Twenty students
go to Germany
More than twenty UBC students have been selected to
participate in a summer work
program in Germany.
The 24 students will leave
May 24 and return September
7. They will work for a period
of eight weeks and then be
free to travel for the remaining month.
Male students will be em-
played in industry and female
students will work in lodges

be paid the normal German
wage for the particular job.
Liberal MP John Turner (class of '49) Thursday advised
UBC students to start an anti-calendar and raise some hell
doing it.
"The customer is always
right in this game, and the students are the customers," he
told a student-alumni banquet
in Brock Hall.
"You should militate for better teaching.
"Students can raise teaching
standards toy their own evaluation of teachers," Turner said.
(An anti-calendar assembles
students' opinions of profs and
courses to guide future students.)
Turner said the possibilities
of non-violent action are infinite.
"Students could raise a little
more hell," he said, "and go

the banquet also to crusade
outside the academic world.
"Students should become
more committed and a more
potent force in society," he
He said picketing and
marches are still effective
means of achieving student
"Cast off your cynicism, do
less brooding and more living,
and get involved and committed," Turner said.
Turner represents the Montreal riding of St. Laurence-
St. George and is parliamentary secretary to Northern Affairs minister Art Laing.
Not Christianity
Marxism scares
Russians most
The greatest weapon against communism in under-developed countries is Marxism, not Christianity, a former secretary to Leon Trotsky said Thursday.
Miss    Raga    Dunayevskaya
told a crowd of more than 75
UBC students in Bu. 106 that
Christianity doesn't disturb
the state and anything that
doesn't disturb the state isn't
bothered  with.
"Revolutionaries in the new
countries of Africa want the
humanist side of Marxism, not
western imperialism or totalitarian state communism," she
• •    •
Miss Dunayevskaya, author
of Marxism and Freedom and
■'a globe-trotting lecturer, was
Trotsky's secretary from 1938-
39 when he was in exile in
She broke with Trotsky in
1939 over political differences,
the same time as an attempt
was made on Trotsky's life.
Miss Dunayevskaya is now
editor of Detroit's News and
Letters, a monthly newspaper
for workers.
"I am happy to be in Canada," she said. The air is a little
freer here than in the U.S."
• *    •
"At least here the word
Marxist is not equated with
witch and marxism isn't forced
into meaning the same thing
as communism."
Miss Dunayevskaya said
automation has great possibilities but, as Marx predicts, it
has all ended by investing machines with intellectual power.
"We are reaching- the point
where the fate of society depends upon  the ICBM."
When asked how the Marx
ist professing humanism would
accomplish revolution without
spilling blood, Miss Dunayevskaya replied that some bloodshed somewhere  is necessary.
"This concept of violence and
non-violence was invented by
the bourgeoisie," she said.
On the topic of Red Chinese
leader Mao Tse-tsung, Miss
Dunayevskaya said:
"That is a man I never want
to be under. He's barbaric. His
line has been the most phenomenal feat of brainwashing."
"His people do not even
flinch at the thought of thermonuclear war."
•    •    •
Miss Dunayevskaya said she
would be shot on sight if she
went to Russia now.
"I was safe as long as Trotsky was alive because they
thought I might have secrets."
Asked if she had ever been
threatened by the Communists
in the States, she replied: "I've
been thrown down more
flights of stairs."

Mandarin award
Our congratulations to Gordon Galbraith and the
UBC Alumni Association.
Galbraith, a hard-working member of what MP John
Turner describes as the Mandarin set, is a worthy
recipient of the award.
Not only is he an efficient administrator in the AMS
bureaucracy but he is a student who gets first-class
And the association that gave him the award deserves
a pat on the back, too.
The Alumni Association contributes $100,000 a year
to students one way or another.
In the last few years the association has become
noticeably more noisy and forward looking.
By doing this and holding such events as the student-alumni banquet, the alumns are attracting more
attention from students.
This is important, for eventually students become
graduates and potential contributors to the association's
fund drive.
In turn students at the university benefit.
Resident sanity
In the topsy-turvey world of student politics a
sensible suggestion is always a welcome addition to
campus life.
And when it is acted upon quickly, why it's downright amazing.
That's our reaction to the eminently sane action
of Lower Mall residents in voting 301-85 to affiliate
with the AMS.
It is unfortunate the Inter-Residence Council, big
daddy to all residence students, hasn't agreed to such
suggestions before and probably won't be too enthused
at the result of the vote.
In fact, the vote has weakened the IRC to the point
where perhaps it should devote its full efforts to merely
co-ordinating the activities of residence life.
We hope the vote in Lower Mall will prompt similar
action in Totem Park and other residences.
Totem Park is the next logical step for an affiliation
movement because it has much in common with Lower
The AMS has much to offer residence students.
The present form of affiliation will allow a relationship to develop along the lines of the AMS-club setup.
Intermediate problems, such as renting Brock Hall at
the student organization rate rather than outside group
rate are solved.
Longer term problems—such as the outrageous price
residents have to pay for washing machines and poor
grievance procedures are on their way to solution.
The AMS has the capacity, and the inclination if
prodded a bit, to tackle these problems.
The present setup between Lower Mall and the AMS
is a step in the right direction. It still leaves the essential business of handling problems in Lower Mall's hands.
But it has opened the resources of the AMS to a
formerly precluded group.
It could lead to an eventual voting, or non-voting
member -sitting on council.
It is a bit of double-representation UBC students
should welcome.
Democracy s censors
must obey majority
Reprinted from a letter to
the Christian Science Monitor
by Norman L. Thomas.
There is a destructive and
unnecessary confusion appearing in too many contemporary
public statements concerning
ethics and values.
In particular this is apparent in pronouncements having
to do with censorship of our
mass media.
"Freedom" and "licence",
"proper restraint" and "tyrannical controls" are words that
have become so mixed, exaggerated or ill-defined that it
is obviously time for a restatement of our meanings so
that we will be better able to
get on with achieving practical goals.
It is not the case that democracy should have no censorship, but that the kind of
censorship we have be determined by the will of the majority.
Freedom itself, as we know
it, necessitates the establishment of limitations to our
more animalistic urges.
In considering our own society, it is important to real-

They're filled with whining women who phone in to
opinion programs because the
announcer is the only person
who will listen to them.
• •    •
Topics:   Anything   and   everything, but mostly nothing.
They've got kids calling in
their innermost problems to
be aired all over the city to
people who couldn't care less.
They're transmitting ads
geared to the sophistication
level of a kindergarten class.
They're jammed with contests, request programs and
other such gimmicks to make
John Q. Public think he's taking a personal part in the program.
And many stations harbor
full-time jokesters who display their witticisms in a flow
of senseless chatter.
What ever happened to
From Bach to the Beatles,
bossa nova to bongos — who
cares, as long as there are
notes joined together to produce a melody.
Anything but incessant and
useless chatter.

Perhaps worst of all is the
enthusiastic early-morning announcer who so cheerfully
cajoles you to greet the early
morning with a smile and a
cup of Sunshine Brand coffee.
Who needs light chatter at

with music.
There would be no loss to

ize that democracy must not
mean anarchy. It does not
mean that we cannot impose a
code upon ourselves.
It simply means that the
code we impose must be in
keeping with the will of the
greatest possible number of
our citizens.
And it also means that each
citizen has an enormous responsibility to examine his
own beliefs carefully and
come to a positive conclusion
on issues that are important
enough to struggle for.
Then he must act with conviction toward the establishment of good legislation as he
now sees it: whether it is the
imposition of greater restrictions on pornographic trash or
the removal of restrictions on
legitimate literary art; the establishment of educational
programs on TV or the elimination of the lewd and the
sadistic during the "children's
hour"; the dissemination of all
political information (far
right and far left) for general
understanding or the curtailment of literature that may
prove to be damaging to the
roots of our own government.
In Plato's society it was
easy. He would censor the bad
for the sake of the good and
discover the good through a
dialectic search carried on by
an "intellectual elite".

to the surmounting of our difficulties is not so clearly predetermined and the going is,
therefore, much rougher and

talks about student
drama in India.
Student drama has been many
things but now its in a bind
— what it needs is writers
who can escape from tradition,
not actors and hew techniques
PF  Two
around the world has
found itself pressed into
many unusual, often non-
dramatic roles.
It has functioned as propaganda, message, protest,
social fanfare — often a
combination of two or more
of these ends.
It has supplied drama in
contexts and countries
where the professional stage
has been non-existent, and
acted as an "activist" fringe
or the venue for dramatic
experiment where traditions
o f professionalism have
slowed down the pace of
dramatic development.
• •     •
Many underdeveloped societies in Asia and Africa
have never had a professional stage tradition — not at
least if this is taken to mean
"theatre" in the modern
sense of the word. In Africa,
for instance, role-playing in
a dramatized style is generally found only in rudimentary ritual form, as part
of a tribal or community-
wide performance geared
to religious or social rites.
Asian countries have
more elaborate dramatic
traditions, but a large portion of these traditions relate to ritualized forms such
as dance-drama or opera,
where portrayal is in terms
of archetypal symbols rather than human complexities.
• •     •
Even the "Natya shastra,"
embodying ancient India's
theory of drama, lays down
rules for performance in
terms of tone or mood of
performance of a total dramatic portrayal, rather than
the properties of particular
events or characters.
And the mediaeval or
modern traditions of Indian
drama have found expression either in a folk-drama
drawing on universalized or
mythological themes where
individual characters reduce
almost to stereotype, or
dance-drama which extends
the abstract dramatic concepts of India by the elemental symbology of hand,
of body movements.
• •      •
The integration and transformation of these elements
into a modern dramatic version — the use of modern
equipment like footlights,
revolving stages, stage scenery, artificial lighting, actor scene-partitioned performances — has often, it not
always, been the result of
e x p e r i m e nts originating
from the university drama
Using the Indian independence theme as its revolutionary   mainspring,   break
ing the prevailing social
taboos against "respectable"
women acting on stage by
recruiting performers from
the intellectual elite, the
university pioneers carried
their work into the post-
university and professional
stage levels and were able
to establish an intellectual
tone that provided the
model for other regions and
cultures in India in the
years to come.
•      •     •
Inevitably, politics crept
into the enthusiastic amateurism of Calcutta theatre.
The ultra- leftist IPTA
(Indian People  Theatre As
sociation) provided much of
inspirational songs and theatre in the '40s and '50s in
Calcutta — but it also
pushed a blanket concern
with "problems" like caste,
poverty, hunger, that (in the
absence o f individualized
solutions portrayed along
with the problems themselves) seemed to ask for
equally blanket solutions.
•     •      •
The failure of university-
inspired drama in India,
then, was written into the
terms of its success: it could
portray social pain graphically but could not argue
equally political alternatives.
In general, the Indian
failure has in fact been less
dramatic than the failure in
other countries, of Africa
and Asia.
In many Afro-Asian countries, the theatre exists only
on university campuses, doing stilted or translated
Shakespeare or watered-
down  portrayals   of  a   sur-

the transfer from the American way, traditions, atmosphere and assumptions
to the Latin American spirit
and history. If you cannot
make this transfer, you are
doomed to suspicion, incomprehension, or worse.
These are several basic
matters which must be understood about Cuban politics, and in order to illustrate them, and in some way
to present them, I must rely
on sources far superior to
my own limited understanding and information.
• •     •
In October, the Monthly
Review published a fine political analysis of the Cuban
scene by Adolfo Gilly, an
Argentine journalist who
lived in Cuba for a year. He
has written a 96 page article on his political analysis.
As Gilly presents it, and
as we found, in Cuba there
is a democracy of sorts, a
democracy which I. F. Stone
described as being like that
of the Greek city states, a
sort of informal and continuing referendum.
• •     •
Perhaps    the    nature    of
this referendum can best be
illustrated by the story of
the fate of the OBI — the
Integrated Party of the Revolution, which was the predecessor of the United Party
of the Socialist Revolution
(the PURS).
The ORI was meant to be
the official Cuban revolutionary party — a merger of
the PSP, the Communist
party of Cuba, and the 26th
of July Movement, the Fid-
Bu the ORI turned out to
be a dismal flop. Organized
from the top down, it became monopolized by an
old Communist guard, who
ruthlessly put their own
personnel into positions.
I met with an American
psychiatric social worker
now working in Cuba who
told me a typical story of
how the ORI functioned.
• •     •
ORI members, totally untrained, would come to tell
her how to do psychiatric
social work. She got so
angry she wrote to Fidel.
Thousands of other Cubans
wrote to Fidel.
They waited to speak
with him. After a year of
this, Fidel went before the
people of Cuba and told
them that, because of what
they had told him, the ORI
had to be disbanded.
This was one of his most
famous speeches — "Against
Bureaucracy and Sectarianism".
But, as Gilly points out,
democracy has to be more
than a spirit, more than a
talk with Fidel, or a letter
to his office.
As Castro himself said in
a recent speech, true workers' democracy must have
institutions and safeguards;
democracy must begin at
the basis of society, and be
organized so that there is
not Just a chance that the
leadership will be reached,
but that certainty.
Also, as Castro says, a
state built on one man or
one set of men is doomed.
An organized system of
workers councils, or Soviets,
has to be established — but
this has not yet been done
by the Cubans.
• •     •
In Cuba, Gilly points out,
the economic questions are
tied to the political questions. When the politics are
not democratic on a local
level, bureaucracy and inefficiency reign in the farms
and in the plants.
Often, the workers or farmers know better themselves what programs to
undertake than the representatives appointed from
There is then, a double
reason for the institutionalizing of Cuban democracy.
Cuba suffers from some
degree of bureaucracy, especially in the non-productive areas of the economy.
• •     •
Cuba has not as yet institutionalized its democratic
foundations; but attempts
are constantly being made
to work out some formula
for this problem. The PURS
is being organized on the
plant level, that is, its members are elected by workers.
There have been "Piolet
projects" such as El Cano,
which give the people control over local industry.
Above all, the Cubans are
armed; they know that the
leadership of the country
has this most concrete of
trusts in them — that the
leaders can wander freely
among an armed people. Yet
it is not quite enough, and
the Cubans are aware of
this, too.
It is this awareness that
is the hope of the Cubans.

As Britain withdraws

Britain has almost left the
African continent. No longer

As Britain's level of industrialization rose she

trade with other industrialized nations. Keeping colonies as trading preserves was
not practical.

Smith, Prime Minister of
Rhodesia, announced his intention of declaring unilateral independence from Britain. Harold Wilson then

independence. But Rhodesia

reveals the core of director
Roman Polanski's message.
He has brought a simple
noble savage, virile Christlike young man up against
an almost jaded, civilized
marriage and way of life.
The student, not unaware
of the enticing, yet not
tempting wife, scoffs at the
man and his sense of order
and need for trinkets such
as swim fins, homemade pot
holders, folding tables, cigarets, pipes, lighters and
bits of twine to tell which
way the wind blows.
However,  when the tacit
animosity and jealousy
which has been building up,
is brought to a pitch by their
mutual interest in the woman, basic instincts and passions take over and we see
how readily interchangeable
the roles are.
Polanski's adroit use of
the sailboat and three actors is brilliant. His cameras
are everywhere, picking out
and excellently contrasting
the details of the man's "civ-

of the near naked actors.

It is not often that a reviewer will take it upon
himself to evaluate books
that have been published
privately, (especially those
which have been published

since they are usually an extended manifestation of self-
aggrandizement and prestige
on the part of the author or

overlook this slim volume
of short stories simply entitled: Three by Three.
Three by Three means
discernibly enough, that
there are three stories
apiece from three authors.
And after reading this book,
it is difficult to believe that
three men of such genius
could possibly have met,

Anthony Baskett is given
the initial opportunity to
display his talents, and what
a display! The pace he sets
with his pithy, brilliantly
structured, stories can only

finer works of Evelyn
Waugh   and   Iris   Murdoch.
THREE BY THREE, by Anthony Baskelt, Marcus
Spoon, and Spery Mc-
Cumber. Published 1964,
by Isis Press, San Francisco. Hardcover, $4.95.
117 pages, illustrated.
Mr. Baskett's precision in
language is infallable. His
sentences are singularly
faultless, and his paragraph
construction makes this reviewer feel this is certainly
the way Shakespeare would
have done it, had he written prose.
Perhaps what is even
more interesting than Baskett's language, is the symbolic design that lends to
each story a resonant balance. Mr. Baskett's ability
to dive into the subtle and
elusive meaning of action is
prodigious. The first story,
'Singularly Alone', observes
with incisive perception
how the individual delusion
of a man is interpreted by
himself. Crashaw B a i n e s
feels his world is decaying
about, he is being swept into
a void. On the superficial
level, the reader is led to
believe this is a result of
the progressive deterioration of his psyche. But one
must look to the symbolic
structure for the real truth.
And from it we find that
Baines is not at all deluded
but is interpreting the world
as it really is.
The other two stories,
Outside and Alone, and All
by Myself, deal also .with
deterioration, but on a
grander scale. In Outside
and Alone, Baskett successfully   desecrates   the   Chris
tian family structure. And
in All by Myself, he is no
less successful in destroying the entire concept of
the universe.
Baskett is a truly great
talent. But one must be cautious not to take him slightly, one must be constantly
aware of the structure, for
here the beauty and essence
of Mr. Baskett's subtle and
acerbic thought  lies.
Now to Marcus Spoon.
The finest story of his three
is entitled Most Likely Under a Tree. I found astounding the complexity and
wealth of thought expressed
in this story. Mr. Spoon has
managed to elevate the
dream to reality. And he
has so expertly done this
one wonders where reality
is to go if Mr. Spoon is to
go on.
Mr. Spoon's style reveals
remarkable similarities to
the contemporary French
writer, Robbe-Grillet. But
with something more profound and divine at its core.
I can do little more than
rephrase a previous statement: if Robbe-Grillet had
written prose, this is certainly the way he would
have done it.
Mr. Spoon's other two
stories, The Tree Is Probably Under The Sky, and If
That's Where The Sky Is,
Where Are The Stars?, do
nothing to belie the fecund
future that lies before him.
And I truly regret that limitations of space here do not
allow me to go any further.
But we must get to Mr.
Spery McCumber. I should
not use the imperative must,
but rather the word want.
It is most difficult to say
anything concrete about Mr.
McCumber's work.
Everything is so faultless
that he virtually makes it
impossible for me to say
any more than read his stories. And^ most definitely
read the first, Beneath The
Ula Lume Stars.
The heightened lyricism
of this story, and of the
rest, is so highly developed
that it presents the illusion
of total freedom. But not so.
The appearance is an effect
Mr. McCumber has worked
out, after I'm sure, considerable toil. I can merely say
read all the stories.
Mr. McCumber's other
two: Ula Lume Night, and
Who Killed Baby Ula, are
beautiful and harmonious
complements to the first.
This trio represents a new
generation of writers. That
three men so diverse, yet
with such similar proclivities for language and
rhythm, should exist with
mutual sympathy only affirms in my mind that these
are the new writers, and

Nat King Cole did a lot tor
jazz — but let's remember
what we lost by forcing him
to ape the currently popular
styles, to waste his talent
THOSE who follow popular music closely shared
a latent shock concerning
the recent death of Nat
"King" Cole. This article is
an attempt to evaluate within context the accomplishments of Nat Cole as a musical artist and Negro entertainer.
- Born Nathaniel Coles in
Birmingham, Alabama on
March 3, 1917, he made his
musical debut with the King
Cole Trio in 1939. In a jazz
sense, Cole's most significant work dates from this
Trio recordings and scattered sessions with Lionel
Hampton give evidence of a
pianist of considerable ingenuity. Indeed the musical
idea of a trio comprising
piano, bass and electric
guitar originated with Cole
and reached fruition with
the Oscar Peterson Trio in
the mid-50s.
However, Cole's vocal talent soon led him to greener
pastures. His first hit record,
"Straighten Up and Fly
Right" broke in December,
By 1950 Cole was an international show business
name. He extended into motion pictures, most notably
St. Louis Blues, in which
Cole portrayed composer
W. C. Handy.
During 1956-57 Cole hosted a memorable NBC-TV
series which featured such
personalities as Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Home and
Count Basie. Apparently
these stars donated their
collective talents. No advertising agency ever did find
a national sponsor and Nat
Cole abandoned the first
and only network TV series
featuring a  Negro  artist.
The latter '50s and early
'60s found Cole in artistic
eclipse. Aside from a romping session with the late
Lester Young in 1955, his
jazz piano was seldom
heard. Certainly the nadir
of his career was reached
with the recording of such
b a n a 1 i t i e s as "Rambling
But Nat Cole had such a
genuine talent that he enriched anything he chose to
sing. Such naturalness in
our day of tortured vocal
interpretations and unmitigated chicanery by recording engineers on behalf of
their "artists", only serves
to sharpen the image of the
unique entertainer Nat Cole
Considered as a group
such entertainers are Negroes of an older generation
who have gained wide public acceptance.
Lena Home, Louis Armstrong, the Mills Brothers,
Duke   Ellington,   Sammy

Davis Jr., are other examples. Night club "connois-
eurs" laud these entertainers as the real "pros" of
show business. But it is professionalism of a perverse

—both physical and artistic.
Refuge was found in the
, Negro entertainer adopting
a protective facade or mask.
Essentially the performer's mask projects to the
public a superficial pleasantness which effectively
conceals any feelings about
repertoire, surroundings and
Most public entertainers
mask themselves to some
degree but unless you have
heard Duke Ellington pronounce glibly that he and
the entire band "really do
love you madly" over the
verbal World War III that
plays Isy's nightly, do you
begin to realize the blatant
unreality of the put-on.
Unfortunately there is inevitably a similar emasculation of the artist's work.
What was originally genuine and creative is lost in
the endless repetition of material, the aping of currently popular styles, all dictated ruthlessly by a majority
public that is really concerned with a night's escape
rather than any sort of artistic appreciation.
Nat Cole rationalized this
situation by m a in taining
that he was a businessman.
As a businessman Cole catered to what he himself
called "the squares". He had
no real choice.
What then is significant
about the career of Nat
If we can view Nat Cole
within a personal matrix
that consisted of the conflicting roles of artist, Negro
"pathfinder", and entertainer we can more fully appreciate both his artistic dilemma and his ultimate contribution.
In such a context the fact
that Cole was a "pro" or
that he wasted his talent on
"Rambling Rose" does not
seem to matter.
More pertinent is the fact
that older Negro stars like
Cole did make artistic sacrifices in order to be accepted
by the mass public. This has
enabled such disparate
younger Negro talents as
Harry Belafonte, Odetta,
and Miles Davis to be accepted on their own artistic
But our remembrance of
what Nat Cole was able to
achieve should be tempered
by the consideration of what
our culture prevented him
from accomplishing.
A North American society
that is so aesthetically hung
up that on higher levels of
musical culture it must be
told what is good and on
more popular levels desires
to be told that what it likes
is good deserves our scrutiny.
Nat Cole hardly can be
considered as representative
of the art form that is serious music but this does not
deny that there is a level of
creativity and craftsmanship up to the point of artistry in popular music.
The fact that the Nat
Coles are relentlessly dragged down to the lowest com-
m o n denominator should
concern anyone interested
in popular music.
We do a disservice to all
talented popular performers
by not demanding their artistic best. When such a performer had the rare talent
of Nat Cole we cannot begin to realize the extent of
our loss.
Talent of cast
and director
produce top
opera show
People came and were
amazed last Friday and Saturday evenings, when Department of Music presented
its first Winter Opera Workshop.
The excellence of French
Tickner's direction, combined with the obvious talent of most of his cast, made
all of the excerpts presented
most  impressive.
Soprano Betty-Ann Busch
began Friday's program
with Orff's setting of Monteverdi's Lament of Ariadne.
Her voice, inspite of precise
intonation and dramatic
control, seemed to lack the
power to convey the full
tragic7 impact of the selection.
As Dorabella, however, in
the concluding first act selection from Cosi fan tutte
she truly distinguished herself as comedienne and musician, especially in duet
with Mary Cunningham's
Miss Cunningham sang a
suitably insipid Mimi in the
tear-jerking final act of La
Boheme, molding a remarkably pure soprano around
her consumptive coughs.
Each program selection
included the climax of the
work from which it was
taken; none of these climaxes was more difficult to
work into than the first
scene of II Trovatore, Act
II, which flies directly into
full melodrama.
Judi Lumb Forst's big
mezzo-soprano and interpretive powers struggled successfully with the role of
Azucena, overpowering the
Manrico of Paul Perdue.
Mozart's Cosi fan tutte
Act I was undeniably the
hit of the evening. Steven
Hendrickson, as Don Alfonso, and Carol Clouston, as
Despina, acted and sang independently and in ensemble to create 'fully
rounded, hilarious characterizations.
Tickner promised a return appearance towards the
end of March, at which time
Prince Igor, Pelleas et Meli-
sande, and other modern
works will be featured.

VERY DAY here provides an interesting exercise in interpreting the local and world news as reported by the local press.
Reading between the lines
is an accomplished art
around Moscow University,
and foreign exchange students can supplement this
supply with western papers'
and journals.
It was rather characteristic in this regard that the
first news I heard of the
local government shake-up
came from the BBC, while
I was out listening to the
British elections returns.
On the previous day (October 14), I had been returning from class with a Canadian friend, -when we noticed a huge portrait of Mr.
Khrushchev on the front of
the Moskva Hotel.
We had commented jokingly that he had better be
careful not to develop too
much of a "personality
cult", little knowing that
the process of his removal
was already under way.
On the 15th, one of the
exchange students was advised by a komsomol friend
to be sure to buy a news-
peper in the morning, as important news was to be announced.
Sure enough, half an hour
before the papers arrived,
long queues had already
formed (not only because of
rumor, as the radio announced the news before
the papers came out).
All the news media carried the same short announcement, that the "request of Comrade Khrushchev, N.S., for release from
his duties on account of ad-

vanced age and deteriorating health."
Later in the day, while
checking the main placard
and posters shop in town, I
noticed that his pictures had
been replaced by those of
the new cosmonauts; however, it was still possible for
a few days to buy portraits
"under   the   counter".
Within a few days many
students seemed to be able
and willing to enumerate
the reasons for the change,
in contrast to their reticence
to criticize a few days earlier.
In general the reaction
was remarkably calm, but I
know a lot of talk went on
as soon as friends got together. My reaction was one
of frustration at being very
near, yet very far from the
In the weeks and months
since the change, a wait-
and-see attitude seems to be
the rule  (perhaps  always?).
A lot of rumor and speculation as to what is under
way has been going on, but
this is one place where I
would prefer to reserve comment.
I should like to make a
comment or two about the
Russian student's attitude to
his society.
Although some have the
tendency, until well acquainted, of making a small
speech rather than ex-changing thoughts in a give-and-
take atmosphere, it becomes
evident, if one takes a
friendly and tactful approach, that he can be
quite free in his criticism of
life here.
Most students will admit
the serious problems and
shortcomings in this society,
while professing a belief
that only by a long process
of evolution can things be
straightened out.
However, it would be a
mistake, in my opinion, to
conclude that these are
merely realists trying to
make the most of a system
to which they are hostile.
That type of student
exists here, unquestionably,
but the majority of Russian
young people still believe
that Marxism supplies the
theoretical tools with which
to build a happy future for
mankind, and that were it
not for defective leadership
and the disaster of war, this
nation would be far ahead
in creating a "great society".
Their aversion to war is
very deeply felt. For this
and other reasons, it is
hardly surprising that they
were pleased by the decisive
result of the American election.

Even as competent a cast
as that which appeared on
the Q.E. stage last Saturday

stretching Rossini's Italian
Girl in Algiers beyond the

Act one reveals all the
promise of the young Rossini; acts two and three show
little but weaknesses shared
by him and his librettist.
Director Irving Guttman

every possibility for burlesque in a valiant but not
overly successful attempt to

The orchestra,  under  the

direction of Henry Lewis;
caught the full appeal of an
overture much more popular
than its opera, and constituted much of the strength of
the remarkable first act.
Mr. Montal made the most
of an exciting tenor-French
horn duet; his lyric tenor
blended well also with Beat-
tie's sharply-defined basso.
Marilyn Home's rendition
of Isabella, though solidly
dramatic and technically secure throughout, added little
to what musical excitement
the opera contained. Her oft-
times brassy mezzo soprano
was at its best in ensemble.
Dodi Protero played a visually delicious and vocally
superlative Elvira; the Bey's
foolishness in rejecting her
was matched only by that of
Taddeo (Napoleon Bisson)—
and the fault was in the
character, not the presentation.
The breathless nonsense
patter of the first act finale
provided almost the only
real musical comedy of the
night; beyond that point,

The new B.C. Institute of
Technology in Burnaby opened last September. Thursday The Ubyssey sent reporter Carol-Anne Baker to
take a tour.
The project began in 1960,
when the federal government
initiated a royal commission
to study the high rate of unemployment in Canada.
"It was found! there were
many jobs available but there
were no trained people to fill
these jobs," he said. "Technicians were being brought
from Europe to fill positions
here," said BCIT registrar S.
T. Field.
"Advisory committees to
study which types of programs were needed were set
up and continue to operate so
the courses can be adjusted to
fit the demands year after
year," Field said.
Failures have
third chance
Can UBC failures go to SFA?
UBC registrar John Parnell
and SFA registrar Norman
Barton are not wholly agreed
on the matter.
"At UBC, a student who
fails two years is asked to
withdraw, but he may apply
to the readmission committee
of his faculty, and if his case
is reasonable, he could be readmitted," Parnell said.
"Most reputable universities
don't accept students who have
failed at other universities, but
if it were easier for a student
under these conditions to attend SFA, it would seem possible that he would be admitted to Simon Fraser," he said.
"I disagree," said Barton, "a
student applying for admission
to Simon Fraser has to meet
the requirements, and if he
does not, he will not be permitted to register."
"Students submitting application forms fall into two
categories, the regular where
they meet the requirements
and are automatically accepted,
and the special, where individual consideration is given to
the student."
"If any student fails to meet
the requirements for either
group, he will not be admitted
to Simon Fraser," said Barton.
Barton did not say whether
students failing twice at UBC
would be included in the special consideration group for
If SFA is not a reputable
university, UBC failures may
have a third chance.
This year the enrolment of
about 500 students is distributed in 17 programs. Twelve
engineering technology programs, two medical programs
and three business programs.
The students, 60 per cent
from out of town, work a
seven:hour day of 60 per cent
labs and 40 per cent lectures.
Fees are $150 a year, $60
for first term from September
to Christmas, and $90 for second term from January to
June with $5 registration fee,
and $5 student activity fee.
"However, the cost of books
is high," said Field. "They run

Next year the enrolment is
expected to jump to about

them in Missoula for games
against some probably un-
trounceable Grizzlies from the

"It will be the toughest series
of the season," says T'Bird bas
ketball coach Peter Mullins.
Verification for this statement is afforded by the fact
that Montana is currently waging a hot fight with Gonzaga
for top spot in the Big Sky
Conference. Gonzaga defeated
the Birds in two straight games
earlier this year by scores of
55-53 and 65^51.
Montana defeated Gonzaga
83-82 recently and are sporting

undefeated. If men were unable to beat them, whose fault

And master Baldwin got a

to any young curler's dreams.
For the master said something
about not thinking it was
right for kids of high school
age to compete in Brier competition. It just might have
been that he wasn't confident
of capturing his third tankard.
In the end, the Alberta

The following year a rule
was passed that no curler still

The Calgary squad competes
in the WCIAA against the Universities of Saskatchewan,
Manitoba and Alberta (Edmonton). But they haven't been
too successful sitting in the
basement all season.
UBC has a 9-6-2 record for
the season and in previous
games in Calgary this season
they defeated the Dinosaurs
8-2 and 6-3.
Much of the Birds' power
this season has come from its
Olympic stars: Gary Dineen,
Bob Forhan, Al McLean, Barry
McKenzie and Ken Broderick.
Forhan, McKenzie and Broderick leave Friday afternoon
for Europe where they will
join the Canadian National
hockey   team   for   the   World
Hockey Championships in Finland beginning March 5.
Dineen, the fine center from
Montreal, will play Friday
and then leave Saturday to
join his mates in Europe.
Jack Harris, who has shared
the goal tending duties with
Broderick, will be in the nets
for both weekend games.
In recent games, UBC has
used Junior Varsity defence-
man Len Bousquet and forward Ross Little. Coach Bob
Hindmarch plans to use them
both this weekend and says
that they have done a more
than adequate job for the Varsity.

Two things about Pimm's: easy to serve,
and a taste you'll enjoy. Just pour into a
tall glass and add ice and fill up with your
favourite light mix. You can add a slice of
cucumber, a piece of lemon, or a sprig of
mint to make the traditional Pimm's, famous throughout the world. But don't
bother unless you're in the mood. A new
generation is rediscovering Pimm's... and
enjoying every moment of it.
simply because you'll enjoy the taste of it

VOC held its annual Open House last Sunday in the club
cabin on Mt. Seymour.
Displays centered around that of the Conservation committee, presently very active in a fight to preserve B.C. park
lands from the results of pending legislation in Victoria.
Saturday night.the club held its own party and dance in
the cabin, highlighted by competition between girls' and
boys' chorus lines.
The boys won the competition with an incomparable rendering of something similar to the Bolshoi Ballet.
Before the Open House on Sunday a steeplechase obstacle
ski race was held near the club cabin.
Nina Locke won the girls' division; winner of the boys' race
was unfortunately lost in the usually clear memory of my

Five months of training paid off for two Women's Thunderbird ski teams as they returned with a first and a second
place in the Pacific Northwest Women's Intercollegiate ski

Miss Workman took second place in the Giant Slalom, and
Miss Kerr placed third in the Slalom.

Shirley Black teamed up with a second, third and fourth to
give the Thunderbirds a clear overall first place.
Individually, Miss Harrison and Miss Hamilton took first
and second in the Giant Slalom, and switched places with
third and fourth place finishes in the Slalom.
Coach Liz Bilodeau was pleased with the two teams' showings and felt that prospects for next year's teams were equally
Many racers from other colleges were disqualified in the

If a backward girl suddenly

a coincidence. True, the shirt-
jac does have a remarkable
new neatness that looks trim,
always! True, it makes you feel
better by freeing up your arm
movement without messy pulling out from the waistline, and
by being contour cut to skim
the chest easily. And true, it
does make you look a little'
slimmer and more stylish . . .
Say. Maybe it's not just coinci-
