Macdonald promises students
UBC is going to get Its ambulance.
j';Diy John Macdonald ait«
nbunced Wednesday that arrangements were toeing made to
equip the University with a
first aid vehicle.
The ambulance will be under
the control of Sir Ouvry Roty
erts'   Security Patrol.
■ •   •-•
Dr. Macdonald's announcement was contained in a letter
to Ron Tse, president of the
Graduate Students Association.
The association submitted a
brief to Dr. Macdonald last
week, pointing out the need for
immediate acquisition of an
emergency vehicle.
The brief pointed to two accidents on campus last week
when a UBC ambulance was
required.
Two injured' students were
trapped in an overturned ear
for 30 minutes until an ambulance and wrecker could be
brought from Vancouver.
A professor and a graduate
dhemistry student suffered
serious   eye   injuries  when   a
glass tubing complex exploded
in the chemistry building.
The professor Dr. Neil Bartlett, may lose his sight.
The brief said medical help
could have been brought to
Dr. Bartlett more quickly if an
ambulance familiar with the
campus had been available.
The brief also said emergency telephones should be provided on every floor of each
building.
Tse said he and his association had made a detailed study
of the costs of an emergency
vehicle and would submit a
report to council next Monday.
"But with this new announcement we're not sure this
report will be needed," Tse
said.
*;   *•■*  .
Agriculture undergradu ate
president Frank Millerd has
been investigating the ambulance situation ior student council.
He told council there was
more than 100 inhalator calls
to   the  UBC   fire   department
last year and one ambulance
company made 30 calls to UBC
in the same period.
"Students have been carried
in everything from a garbage
truck to a Buildings and
Ground  pick-up,"  he said.
Tse said his brief had asked
that the ambulance be under
the control of the fire department but he said ,Dr. Macdonald's suggestion was equally
good.
tions of AMS president, second
vice-president and secretary were
each being sought by only one
candidate.
Deadline for nominations is
4 p.m. today.
Two second slate positions—
treasurer and first vice-president—each have only one candidate.
UBYSSEY   BLAMED
No one is yet running for coordinator of activities.
Deadline for second slate
nominations is Feb. 7.
AMS president Doug Stewart
sharply criticized the lack of
interest in student government.
He blamed part of the trouble
on a recent Ubyssey editorial
attacking fraternity domination
in council.
"Now the fraternity members
are afraid to run," he said.
LONE NOMINEE
Lone nominee for president is I
incumbent: treasurer Malcolm'
Scott. Scott, who has had his
campaign posters up for over a
week, said Wednesday he expects no opposition.
Byron Hender, Commerce II,
and assistant co-ordinator of
publications is running for second vice-president.
Marnie Wright, Arts III, is
running for secretary.
First slate elections are Feb.
6. All candidates will be declared winners by acclamation
today if no further nominations
are submitted.:
NO COORDINATOR
The nominees for second slate
are Ed Lavalle, incumbent second vice-president, for treasurer
and Mike Coleman, Arts undergraduate president, for first vice-
president.
No one has indicated he will
run for coordinator of activities.
Incumbent coordinator Bernie
Papke said he had changed his
mind about standing for re-election.
R-Squad 2,
RCMP 0
UBC's alert R-Squad swooped silently into action this
week and foiled two RCMP
radar traps.
The R-Squad, an anonymous student trio, hounded
the trapsters all Monday
with warning signs, sneak
photographers and blinking
lights.
It is believed the squad was
responsible for the RCMP
moving the location of its
trap from Chancellor to Marine Drive.
S/Sgt. D. G. Thompson,
head of UBC's RCMP detachment, said he was surprised
to hear of the squad's existence.
"I'm going to start aft investigation immediately," he
said Wednesday.

Securing a secure security
The following interview
and article originally appear-
. ed in The Carleton, the student paper at Carleton University, Ottawa. The interview quote-, a student whom
the Carleton says was approached to be an RCMP
campus informer two years
ago.
• _•    *
"It was a week-night about
eight o'clock. A man, about 25
years old, came to my door and
asked to speak to me. He asked me to step out onto the
porch where he revealed a
card indicating he was an officer of the RCMP.
"He explained that the force
had reasons to believe there
was a certain amount of subversive activity on the campus
and were therefore looking for
someone to keep an eye on suspect groups. He named the New
Party and CUCND saying they
wanted to make sure these
■were not fronts for subversive
activity. Specifically, he said,
they wanted to know what was
being discussed at their meetings. He used the word 'pink.'
"I told him that I could not
in conscience judge my fellow
students.
• •    *
"The officer persisted. He
named four students and asked
questions like "Do. they talk a
lot at meetings? Are they reliable?"
"After I had refused he asked me if I knew any other students who would be willing to
do the job. I said no.
"Previously he had said that
the police knew of some who
had 'Communist leanings, if
they weren't out and out Communists'."
Th& RCMP are interested in
the security of the nation. They
pursue their mandate with
grea.t zeal, but because of this
are in trouble with the academic community.
Indeed, it is difficult to come
to terms with the demands of
security in the international
context. Most people, we would
suggest, agree that there are
definite security demands to
be met. But to admit this,
doesn't take it out of the democratic context. We can mandate
a police force to handle the
security assignment while remaining a democratic check on
the activities of the force. That
is the rationale behind newspaper coverage of courts, investigations and police activity of
all kinds.
• *    •
There is a further dimension
to all this. Because it involves
security does this mean that
security will be endangered by
revealing the nature of the
methods which have been used
to ensure security? We feel that
democracy can be threatened
from within ,as well as from
without. If security supercedes
democracy then it is the country, not democracy, that we are
required to defend.
Hence, in the following we
subscribe to the old democratic
adage that "light is the sovereign antiseptic." Democracy
will never be threatened by enlightenment.
• *    •
The foregoing is a statement
by a student who was asked
two years ago to oversee the
activities of organizations on
campus which the police had
reason to believe were fronts
for Communist subversion.
This person has chosen not
to   reveal   his   name.   We  can,
however, vouch for the integrity of this person and the truth
of his word If students are, in
fact, doing what the RCMP
have suggested they do then
academic freedom is at stake
and we will all be intimidated
by the fear of consequences for
ideas which, heretical as they
may seem in years to come, we
held honestly in our youth.
God help us when we are
afraid to utter a "soft" phrase
to someone who might be a
loyal defender of security.
Forty doys
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
This is directed to M'ike Grenby and his column on the Academic Symposium. No, I'm not
attending this symposium and
quite frankly I couldn't think
of doing anything more revolting if I sat and thought for
forty days and forty nights.
First of all, look at the topics: "The Aims of Higher Education in B.C." or "The Creative Imagination"; I'm not trying to knock creativity, but I
can get more inspiration from
going down to West Hastings
and having a cup of coffee and
talking to a drunk. The whole
idea of an off-season trip to a
luxury beachside resort is so
Victorian, something which I
imagine some religions call a
retreat. It is a place where you
can go to rest on your laurels,
away from the realities of life
and air your lofty opinions on
"The Function of a Religious
Studies Department in a Secular University."
As far as it goes, I don't care
if someone does choose to go
to this symposium, I only become very irritated when
taunted to be a good bov now
and take my academic cod-liver
oil.
JAMES    KALMAKOFF.
Science   III.
Shame
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
A recent Science production,
The Black Plague, was designed, if I understand correctly,
to show the evqlution of tha.
Scienceman. Evolution from
what? Evolution to what?
In presenting a cheap, unnecessarily hollow edition.
Science has bowed its glorious
head. Science is not to be
praised for lowering itself to
the standards of the engineer.
From the diagrams of the
evolution of the Scienceman",
one can see that science has
evolved only in outward appearances. Outward appearances are immaterial to the true
scientist. What a man contributes is of greater value. Many
of the great men of science are
remembered only in name as
they have contributed to the
development of their particular
field.
Let the faculty be recognized
for its united effort in Science
Week, but let not the name of
science be marred with the hys-
teron of little minds. ,
Yours truly,
DAVID DAVIS,

For the sake of fraternities
By Bill Willson
Ubyssey  Slaff  Writer
Methinks, thou dost protest
too much.
Fraternities, like most other
secretive organizations are extremely sensitive about their
public image. No doubt this
can be expected.when the public, particularly the communications media, chooses to seize
upon a number of unsavory
incidents and project these as
typical of all fraternities. That
this is so, need not be belaboured.
•    •    •
My criticism  of   fraternities
is that they distort the truth
in a way which is harmful to
their cause. By the truth I
mean, those characteristics of
fraternities which should be admired. Instead of admitting certain desirable features, they
play them down with substitutes which malie the entire
movement look ludicrous.
The present controversy over
the fraternity machine in cam
pus politics is a case in point.
That a machine exists, particularly in some fraternities, is
obvious. But in protecting their
image, fraternity spokesmen
have found it necessary to
deny profusely that such a
situation does exist. The error
they make is immediately concluding that the use of the word
"machine" is meant to be derogatory. A little reflection
should reveal that a machine is
a commonplace component of a
democratic society. Therefore
the criticism should be made -
against other campus groups
which have failed to appreciate
this fundamental fact.
• • •
Mardi Gras is another institution which is commonly vic-
timizd by fraternities' enemies
and subveried by fraternities
themselves. Why not admit that
the prime purpose of Mardi
Gras is a good tv?.rty? The important corollary is the aid
given to worthwhile charitable
organizations. Why not admit
that the  amount  of the  dona
tion (which is becoming considerable) could only be collect-^
ed in this way? However, fraternities see fit to neglect this
logic and are rendered ridiculous by arguing that the purpose of Mardi Gras is not really
to have a good time.
To take the argument one
step further and encompass the
whole concept of fraternities
would undoubtedly enhance
and rejuvenate what is at present a sadlv constructed image.
• • •
Why not toss out the virtuous platitudes that r ol 1
off the tongue so oddly, in
favor of a flat statement that
fraternities are social organizations, serving the interests of
their members. Stop pretending
that there is something wrong
with social organizations that
proclaim as their aim enjoyment. Fact two, then, is that
social organizaions are also an
integral part of society.
I conclude with the frustrating
thought that I am destined to
become a male Cassandra. Thursday, January 31, 1963

—DIRTY POOL—
By Ron Ritet  "
There's been a lot written
lately about how the old, dark,
dirty, smoky and generally uncouth pool parlors Are becoming
things of the past, superceded
by the new, bright, clean and
chic billiard establishments
catering to the female trade.
Well, it's okay for these cats
to mourn editorially the passing of an era and all that, but
have they tried shooting pool
in one of these co-ed joints? I
doubt it.
You see, I was attracted to
one of the new frontier pool
i»alls( I refuse to use any of the
frilly euphemisms coming into
use; a pool hall is a pool hall)
mostly because of its newness.
Ic would have newf solid tables,
unchipped balls, straight cues,
and good felt on the;tables.
• •    *
And so it was. Good quality
£ew equipment..
There were a few thing that
took getting used to, like high
Ceilings and flourescent lights
all  over  the place.
B«ige, blue and tangerine
table tops were a bit of a jolt,
iaWd delicate green cue- chalk
was a definite shock.
(Cue chalk has been a rather
dirty, indelible blue color since
Minhesota Fats was a skinny
kid.)
But the adjustment to these
small details came easily.
It seemed a little strange to
see girls in a pool hall, but hell,
I've got nothing against girls.
Sorta like  'em,  actually.
The problem came trying to
shoot pool while watching the
girls and knowing the girls
were watching me.
• •'    *
I selected a cue, dusted chalk
On it in my bast Fast Eddie
fashion, lined up the cue ball
and went to make a loud, clean
break of the racked balls.
In  my   conceit of  trying  to
show these females how a man-
shoots pool, I neglected to watch
what I was doing and jumped
the cue ball across the room.
Amid titters from the gallery,
and with great embarrassment,
I retrieved the bouncing ivory.
Using great concentration, I
managed to make a nice quiet
break, muffed one shot, then
jsaaik three in a row.
Gaining confidence, I lined up
a delicate cut into the corner
pocket, then made the mistake
of glancing over at the next
table just as a blond in tight
slacks bent over the table to
shoot.
Skrrt! I missed the cue ball
and poked a four inch gash in
the felt.
The proprietoress came over
and informed me in an uneces-
sarily loud voice that ripped
felt dost $1 per inch of rip and
that the language I Was using
certainly wasn't appreciated in
a place like this.
• ■   •    *
I mid up and beat a shamefaced retreat.
I'm writing this from a dank,
gloomy, little eight-table basement hell off Granville.
Sure is nice to be back to
moth-eaten tables, chipped balls
and crooked cues.
The advent of the feminine
billiard parlor is certainly to
be mourned; it heralds the passing of an era.

"so they should be disqualified.
"And so should education," he
added. "Their horse didn't have

estimated the noisy little machine hit over 45 mph on Main

Arts, the fourth faculty entered, failed to show up.
Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, a Lutheran minister and
history department head at Waterloo University, heaped ridicule on arguments used recently
ay UBC professor Dr. Avrum
Stroll in stating that no one can
make any serious statements
about Jesus Christ.
(Stroll said the story of Christ
had become lost through time
and mysticism, that there was
no reliable material existing
concerning the purported savior.)
GRAVE ERRORS
Montgomery labelled Stroll's
opinions "unscholarly drivel."
He claimed the philosophy
professor was basing his stand
on four grave historical-philosophical errors.
These are: reliance on judgment of certain authorities who
question reliability of New Testament documents; neglect of
primary documents (such as
Original manuscripts); "begging
the question," and attempting to
explain the history of Jesus as
the product of Messianic fever.
Montgomery asserted historians recognize that New Testament documents can be relied
upon to give an accurate portrait of Jesus.
LUTHERAN GUEST
This portrait cannot be rationalized by wishful thinking,
philosophical presuppositions or
literary manoeuvring,"  he said.
Montgomery was invited to
speak by campus Lutherans.
Today at..noon in the Armory,
Montgomery's points will likely
be reviewed when the philosophy club sponsors a sequel talk
by faculty members on atheism.
Officials hide
illicit games
By   Tim   Padmore
Envious students have cost the
AMS $11 for special blinds in
the Games Room.
Student officials liked to shoot
the odd game of pool before
playing hours.
Students would see the illicit
activity and rattle the doors.
One rattled the large glass
door till it broke.
So Brock Managament ordered blinds for the doors to keep
out prying eyes.
When the acquisition came up
for Student Cpuncil approval
Monday night, Commerce president Lloyd Martin suggested the
pool players might give up their
'extracurricular' games.
"QUITE ALL RIGHT"
But Co-ordinator Bernie Papke said it was "quite all right"
for the games room manager and
Brock proctor to have a game
now and then.
"I like to play down there
myself," he said.
Architecture president Bryan
Fisher said the AMIS should "get
the Eleetricals (engineers) in to
wire the doors."
Council finally approved the
expenditure 8-7 with six abstentions.
A proposal to raise pool rates
by 25 cents to 75 cents an hour
was  defeated.

by george bowering
why did they bring henry fourth?
For some reason or other, I lugged my complete Shakespeare
in the bottom of my kitbag last summer as I went on the road to
San Francisco and such places, and in my wanderings I managed
to sit down and read Henry IV Part One. My feeling at the time
was that it was the worst Shakespeare play I'd ever read. Last
Wednesday night at UBC auditorium I was convinced it was also
the worst I had seen.
The fault, I believe, is Shakespeare's. Whoever in the Theater
Dept. accredited the anonymous critics with the idea that this is
the bard's best English history play must have worked out some
cute evasions regarding the classifications for things like the
Richards. I think I would even be inclined to take King John or
poison in preference to H4P1.
no socio-dramatic development
The shortcomings in the play are probably the reason why
the UBC players had such trouble with it on opening night. This
play has about the worst characterization in the whole kitbag
book. None of the characters is given a chance to change or develop
morally, socially, or dramatically.
One character does change; in fact he does a complete back-
flip. This is Prince Hal, the rousting and robbing prodigal son, who
suddenly and unbelievably becomes a fierce realm-loving battler
for the honor of his father and the preservation of the rusty
English crown. Better.I could take Mike Hammer as a Salvation
Army drum pounder. .
Consequently, the scenes that involve the serious dramatic
characters are pretty boring. With so little to work with, the
actors have to develop cute ways to keep the attention of the
audience, and this is what the UBC players tried to do. So John
Wright developed a jumping jack of a Prince Hal, and Karl Wylie
played Hotspur as a tantrum-throwing teenage street fighter.
lotsa gutsy falstaff
Consequently, a production of the play relies heavily on the
groundling's scenes — the roisterous tavern scenes and the slam-
bang battle in the last act. Fortunately, this UBC production had
John Brighton as Falstaff, and director John Brockington, who
is never loathe to hit 'em with the bazazz, made good use of him.
Also, kudos, must go to Anthony Holland, who was in charge
of the fencing for the battle scene. It was a relief to get back into
our. seats and watch the actors wail the hell out of each others'
shields in a lovely noisy fracas that threatened to tear the roof off
the gardens. So realistie was this scene, in fact, that the main floor
audience was gasping — not from the violence of the action, but
from the billowing smoke that engulfed most of the theater. '
Henry IV, then: not as much fun as the Winter's Tale of last
year or The Good Woman of Seizuan of the year before nor as
interesting as either. '

dedicated entirely to new Vancouver
poetry, included four of his poems. Irving Layton, in choosing for his anthology
"Love Where the Nights Are Long," picked only two B.C. poets — Earle Birney
and George Bowering.
The old "Chrysalis Review," now
"Genesis West," published in California,
has a special section each issue in which
a writer new to the American scene is
featured. Introduced, tentatively, by Robert Duncan, George will be feature poet
of issue number four. Twelve of his poems
will be included.
The University of Arizona Poetry
Centre has invited George to make a
poet's visit there, perhaps this fall, for
five days. This will entail readings, working with Creative Writing classes, talking
with young writers, and numerous luncheons. Last year the poet's visit was made
by Robert Duncan.
More and more of George's work is
being published here and in the United
States. The next issue of "Evidence" includes an essay on poetry by him, and
"Contact Press" has asked for a manuscript for a book of poems.
Who or what has influenced his work?
About a 11 he will admit to is nature.
Sources, or rather, guys he likes have
been, in prose: Henry Fielding, William
Faulkner, Jack Kerouac, and "Plastic
Man" comic books; and in poetry: Ezra
Pound, William Carlos Williams, and
Charles Olson. He is extremely conscious
of what has been done before him. Realizing that little, if anything, he can say will
be new, he attempts only to reflect what
has already been said but in his own style.
The fact that his style is effective, and his
sense of rhythm naturally good, makes
George Bowering the poet that he is.
There are, according to George, two
distinct strains of personality in the poem:
the primary one is that where the art of
poetry is predominant; the secondary
where the "passion and all that" comes
in. To him poetry is first and foremost a
vocal art; the other art it approaches
most closely is music. "The poetry written
down is to the poem what photography
is to the real statue." He says a man's
poetry should, reflect the way the poet
responds to the world vocally — so he
thinks all poems have to come across
on a reading level, and the best
should be able to be SUNG. This is
perhaps true of the bast of Bowering's
poetry.
George came to UBC in 1957 and has
been here as both student and instructor
ever since. He is presently working on
his Master's Thesis in Creative Writing
with Robert Creeley as his adviser. He
hopes to complete his thesis this year
and go to the University of New Mexico
at Albuquerque next year to work for a
Ph.D. However, these plans are indefinite.
As well as all his other activities he
has found time somewhere to translate
the "Song of Solomon" into modern verse.
He is currently working on this, relating
it to his own situation and Okanagan Valley background.
He has been on radio before and will
be heard again, sometime this spring, over
CBC, with two other Canadian poets,
K. V. Hertz of Montreal and David Mc-
Fadden of Toronto.
His own poetry readings are perhaps
the most popular of all the poets on this
campus. Just as he says about all poetry,
it is true also that his own work, to communicate fully, should not only be read,
but also heard. Listen to him sometime
and then clap hands for George Bowering.

Simultaneously with the
Festival of the Contemporary

jresent a three-way contemporary exhibition.
One side of the triangle

xtists.
"The second side of the tri-
ngle will be made up of
'orks by Bobbie Creeley who,
uring the recent exhibition,
The Unquiet Canvas, caused a
certain amount of stir with
four "boxes."
The third side, and the larger of the three exhibitions,
will comprise     photographic

panels snd transparencies of
a recent phenomenon that deserves to have applied to it
the  word  "fantastic":  Simon
Rodia's Towers in Watts. California.
Simon Rodia took society's
discards, its junk and waste,
in which none of his neighbors saw any beauty; and he
molded this detritus into fantastic, glittering, 1 a c e 1 i k e
structures that rise as high as
one hundred feet — Towers
that bring beauty, majesty,,
serenity, and international attention to a town which could
have been just another ordinary slum area,, of interest
only to socialworkers.
ANtST LEONARD STEIN will soon be on his   way  to   Vancouver.   He  will   be  featured  in
mcert at the UBC Festival of the Contemporary Arts. The Festival  runs from  Feb. 6- 15.
Now is the time to be sententious rather than tendentious. Shakeseare's Henry IV
Part 1 is an agreeable play in
which are expressed various
problems of a moral and political nature — none of them
amenable to immediate and
easy solution by any save cons-
ciousless men. The theatre department's production put the
idea across with magnificent
style and showy grandeur on its
opening night in the Auditorium.
• *    *
The star of the show, of
course, was John Brighton as
fat Falstaff the man who ex-.
presses Shakespeare's point
that the better part of valor is
discretion. John Wright's Hal
came off comparatively unsuccessfully under the shadow of
the better actor's ability to
dominate any scene with voice
and gesture.
Further, Wright's excessive
determination towards an emphasis upon the eventual separation between Flastaff and
Hal — a separation which does
not take place until Part ,11 is
nearly done — caused him to
search for something which is
there but in spirit, and hence
forced him to overact.
• •    •
The stubborn, but essentially
good-natured Harry Hotspur
was barely comprehensible during the first act. He could be
heard but not understood. However, this was overcome during the first intermission, and
he was thereafter, until his last
moments, thoroughly under -
standable. I think it is a weakness of the play, rather than of
Karl Wylie's interpretation,
that the young Hotspur sheds
any pretense of good-nature
during the scene at Owen Glen-
dower's, castle, only to regain
it, and the audience's esteem, in
the final act.
John Hooper's King was too
mawkish a figure ever to be
worth fighting against. He is
supposed to be stern, resource
ful, and vigorous—after all, he
likes fighting, though not fighting at home—but Hooper was
too womanly weak and changeable.
The battle was vigorously
expressed—clashing of swords,
skilled TV near misses, etc.
There was too much smoke and
dust—the audience also needs
to breathe a little — perhaps
even too many troops; but that
seems to be part of the new
tradition.
The various tavern scenes
were, as was intended, most
funny. They provided the necessary contrast to the grim realities of politics.
• • *
All in all, the play is well
worth seeing. The audience
thoroughly enjoyed itself, and
that is the only measure of a
play's success. There were two
or three more curtain calls to
be taken, which the cast very
modestly denied themselves.

Had any good strikes lately?
Protest strikes, that is, hot

Tne answer would probably

European and Latin American
countries, strikes are the usual
method students use to express
their disapproval of university
policies.

Even trsditionally stolid
Anglo-Saxon countries are
taking up the idea. In Oxford,
England, students stage sit-
down strikes to protest against
their government's foreign
policy. In Oxford, Mississippi,
students protest in a more
vigorous fashion against their
government's domestic policy.
Some student strikes are
strictly political. Students in
West Germany joined other
national groups in sit - down
strikes protesting the arrest of
the editors of "Der Speigei."

A-policy
OTTAWA (CUP1-—The Progressive Conservative Student
Federation has overwhelmingly passed a resolution calling
for nuclear arms for Canada's
armed forces.
Delegates   to   the   National
Convention   here    in    Ottawa
• rallied to calls of "live up to
our commitments," and "stand
, HP and,be counted." They voted
52-11 in favor of the resolution.
Proponents   of   the   A-arms
policy   claimed   Canada   could
not expect to be consulted by
the Americans on the nuclear
question if she was not contributing to the nuclear forces of
both NATO and NORAD.
• •    •
Canada's geography makes it
. imperative she equip her forces
with the latest and most modern
'weapons available. If Canada
doesn't accept nuclear weapons
she will have to rely on the de-
, fgnsixe power of the US, which
would bind us ejven more closely to the Aine.rica.ns, at a time
when Canada wants her own
say in world affairs, they said.
Further, they claimed, the
range of U.S.-based missiles is
such that any interception they
made would be above populated Canadian areas.~^~
This could be avoided, they
claimed, if Canada's Bomarc
was nuclear - equipped. Her
more northerly position would
mean interception would take
place somewhere over arctic
wastelands.
Opponents to the nuclear
policy claimed "the world is
on the shore of a disarmament
agreement," and Canada's acceptance of nuclear arms could
adversely affect any role she
could play in negotiations to
such an agreement.
• *    *
Other opponents claimed
Americans would control the
weapons, even if they were
with Canadian forces. "If we
can't control them, we'd better
-    not get them."
Several delegates said the
acquisition of nuclear arms
would go a long way toward
promoting the cause of peace.

'Planned
Mock Parliament
stalling'
OTTAWA (CUP) — The new
National President of the Progressive Conservative Association of Canada has termed Prime
Minister Diefenbaker's nuclear
arms policy, a policy of "planned procrastination."
Egan Chambers, former parliamentary secretary to the minister ,of National Defence, made
the statement in an interview
with Canadian University Press
following an address to the closing luncheon of the Progressive
Conservative Student Federation
here.
He said the Liberals also had
changed their defence policy
three or four times during the
past four years.
He urged student Conservatives to take a long-range view
in considering their policies. He
urged them to consider the typ°
of nation tlv.y wanted in five or
10 years,, and tailor their present
policy to achieving that goal.

OTTAWA (CUP)—A 22-year-
old arts student from McMaster
University, Ted Culp, jarred the
annual student Conservative convention when he voted against
a motion affirming confidence
in the leadership of Prime Minster John Diefenbaker.
"I have no confidence in Diefenbaker," was all the McMaster
student would say.
He also spfike out against a
resolution declaring loyalty and
devotion to the Queen because
he "doesn't believe in royalty
for Canada."
When his McMaster fellow
delegates heard the news being
broadcast over a local radio sta
tion, Culp was suddenly "not receiving the press," although he
had made an appointment
to speak with a Canadian University Press reporter just minutes earlier.
