Summer hiring invalid
—norm betts photo
MUSES OF THE BENCH ponder evidence in student court before returning 6-1 ruling
Thursday that paying AMS councillors wages for society work during summer is unconstitutional.
B.C. Liberal head urges
liability  Lester to quit
A leading B.C. Liberal has
called for the resignation of
Prime Minister Lester Pearson
as leader of the Liberal party.
Lawrence Jolivet, president
of the B.C. liberal association,
said Thursday that Pearson
was a liability as a leader.
Speaking in a panel discussion in Brock, he said Pearson
"was damaged by the minority government he led before
the election.
"And as a result of the election, he should resign.
"It has been, in effect, a vote
of non-confidence in his leadership," said Jolivet.
He also criticized that his
party's platform of majority-
government was not a good
election issue.
"Only 18 per cent of the people could tell me what a majority government mean t",
said Jolivet.
Birth control ban
to be tested here
The Canadian Union of Students plans to test Canada's
birth control law. 	
Test cases on the ban on sale
of contraceptives were discussed at the western regional CUS
conference Nov. 12-13 in Calgary, UBC CUS president Ed
Lavalle said Thursday.
He said 50 druggists in Vancouver and Victoria are to be
approached by 50 single girls
and asked for contraceptives.
CUS will have asked the
druggists beforehand to agree
to the scheme.
"If there are any prosecutions, they will serve as a test
case for the contraceptive
laws," said Lavalle.
He didn't say when the plan
would be enacted.
Lavalle said the rest of Canada thought UBC's National
Student Day march was the
most successful and effective
thing put on in Canada.
The great thing that has
come out in the conference is
the growing awareness of students of all issues around
them," he said.
UBC CUS vice-president Terrell Popoff read a paper on the
forming of a provincial union
of student.
He said a meeting will be
held in Victoria between representatives from B.C. univer
sities, nursing schools and technical schools.
However, about 80 per cent
of the 150 persons he polled
were in favor of it, he said. .
The panel, sponsored by the
UBC Liberal club, conducted
a post mortem on the Nov. 8
federal election.
Panelist Dr. D. V. Smiley, of
the political science depart
ment, said he saw a further
weakening of the powers of
the federal government as a
result of the election.
"I think it was" an unnecessary election, and it was irre-
sponsibily called," said Smiley.
"It is hard to believe that
the Liberals will act any more
decisively now." he said.
Dr. Jean Laponce, also of the
political science department,
said he took an opinion poll
in the Vancouver Burrard riding that paralleled the errors
in national polls.
He said Conservatives who
punished the party vocally and
then voted for it and Liberals
who did not turn out were the
most probable reasons for the
Smiley said premier W. A.
C. Bennett probably interfered
in the election because the provincial premiers have the most
to gain by a minority government.
Jolivet said Bennett had
probably noticed an increase
in Social Credit support and
wanted credit for it.
He also warned that the increase in the NDP vote might
scare the Socreds into preparing for a provincial election.
"That is right.'
said  Hynd-
He went on to make a distinction between the work
done  during  the summer.
In an interview after the
hearing Coleman said: "It's a
victory for ethics in government. Student leadership is
unaware of ethics."
Coleman pointed out the
councillors voted themselves
the salaries with only the interested parties present.
"Future councillors will
have to be made aware of the
court decision so that they cannot be railroaded into unethical resolutions," he said.
Hyndman said, "While I am
disappointed in the result, I
want to pay tribute to a fair
and competent court.
"It is interesting to see that
the court's decision represents
an interpretation of fact and
not law."
Paid councillors
stopped by court
Student Court Thursday ruled unconstitutional the hiring of elected Alma Mater Society officers to do council
work in the summer.
The seven-member court
brought down 6-1 ruling after
15 minutes of deliberation.
Gordon Galbraith, graduate
studies III, cast the dissenting
The hearing arose out of first
year law student Mike Coleman's charge that the AMS
could not pay student executives to work in their elected
offices during the summer.
Five AMS executives have
been hired during the last two
summers at $400 a month each
— an estimated cost to the
AMS of $7,200.
In 1964 then-president Roger
McAfee, and treasurer Kyle
Mitchell worked for four
In 1965, president Byron
Hender worked for four
months, and co-ordinator
Grame Vance and treasurer
Mike Sommers for one month
McAfee was also paid for
four months in 1965 as Student
Union Building chairman.
The B.C. Corporation Manual makes provision for directors obtaining funds in an unconstitutional manner. The
directors are required to pay
back the money.
Student court ruled, however, that the executives concerned were not liable to pay
back  their earnings.
In a two-hour session, AMS
counsel Peter Hyndman, law
III, and petitioner Coleman exchanged arguments before the
court and 50 students.
Coleman argued against
Hyndman's contention that
AMS executives were not acting in their elected offices during the   summer.
He said executives were
elected for the whole year including the summer.
"In the past the president
has worked for buildings and
grounds so he would be available for AMS business," he
"If the constitution needs
amendment there are ways to
do it other than by a council

Ubyssey to tackle

The Ubyssey, defender of student interests, has decided

California, quoted from a pamphlet issued by a study group

He labeled the government
of South Viet Nam a creation
of the United States, a military dictatorship which does
not represent the people of
Viet Nam.
"The Viet Cong represents
a popular movement in opposition to American military
rule in South Viet Nam," he
Myerson condemned American bombing of villages suspected to be sympathetic to the
Viet Cong.
"TThese raids are acts of aggression against a country with
whom the United States is not
at war."

stop the war in military at-
stop the war, let the Vietnamese
negotiate a peace settlement

Myerson's appearance was
sponsored by the Special
Events Committee.
The decision came Thursday
after Alma Mater Society officials refused to investigate the
noises reported by several coeds this week.
Ubyssey editor Tom Way-
man Thursday blasted AMS officials for not taking action in
the case.
"These poor girls have been
terrorized and yet the AMS, as

Science students and engineers joined forces Thursday
when each thanked a member of their own undergraduate
society in the library pond.
Acid incident
still sought
The engineering undergraduate society is still looking for
evidence regarding acid throwing at Oct. 21 teacup football
"As of noon Thursday, no
new information has been
forthcoming," said Peter Hyndman, chairman of the discipline committee.
"We have some information
including names," said EUS
president Art Stevenson, "but
we are still looking for witnesses.
Sheila Endersbe, science I,
was charged with "unscience-
like activities" and was thrown
into the pond twice by two
The unscience-like activities
included "being pinned to an
engineer and telling science
secrets to engineers."
The engineers then co-operated in'the stunt by tanking Miss
Endersbe's engineer friend,
Tim Forty, eng. III.
The sciencemen then added
Miss Endersbe to the pond for
the third time.
Amid clapping sciencemen
and engineers, Forty and Miss
Endersbe kissed, then walked
away arm in arm.
Science undergraduate president Dave Williams referred to
the incident as another step
forward towards friendly rivalry between the two groups.

Gateway opens crusade
for advertising freedom
The University of Alberta student newspaper, The Gateway,
launched its campaign Thursday for freedom to determine
its own advertising policy.
Editor Don Sellar presented
a brief to the university committee on student affairs asking support in his fight against
an Alberta Liquor Control
Board refusal to permit The
Gateway to carry liquor advertising.
• •      •
The ALCB turned down a
Gateway application earlier
this week, despite the recent
lifting of restriction on liquor
advertising in newspapers and
periodicals in Alberta.
The Gateway is a semi-
weekly of 8,300 circulation.
The application was refused
on the grounds The Gateway is
a publication designed primarily to serve student interests.
"Also, the Board of Governors of U. of A. have expressed
views against liquor advertising in The Gateway," said
ALCB chairman A. D. Elliott.
• •      •
At its Oct. 29 meeting, the
U. of A. student council passed a motion allowing liquor
advertising in The Gateway.
At the meeting provost A. A.
Ryan, an administration
spokesman, said: "The board of
governors is not anxious for
liquor advertising to appear in
the paper.
"However, the board has not
exerted any pressure on the
ALCB to make such a decision." Elliott, Liquor chief,
said, "This is our own decision.
According to the Liquor Advertising Code the manufacturer
may advertise in daily newspapers, weekly papers, magazines, and periodicals."
• •      •
"We are seeking legal advice—we do not intend to accept a decision which has no
legal basis," said editor Sellar.
"This newspaper falls under
one of the categories listed in
the advertising code and I see
no reason why we should not
be allowed to carry liquor advertising.

MONTREAL (CUP) — An open meeting of the McGill

Dec. on whether to support the council's decision to join
the Union Generale des Etudiants du Quebec.
The meeting, attended by about 450 students, de-
feaated a second motion inviting the executive to stay on
should the referendum go against them.
Sharon Sholzberg, president of the council, said in a
telephone interview she is not sorry the second resolution
was defeated.
She said she has every intention of resigning should
the student body vote against joining UGEQ.
"If I have misjudged student feeling so completely
I would have no choice but to resign," she added.

"Nobody shoots at a dead duck"
-W. A. C.  Bennett, Nov. 5, 1965
The AM mess
That noise you are hearing is us eating our own
In this corner was Goliath Hyndman, the AMS'
golden-tongued counsel, and president of the law students association.
And in that corner was David Coleman, lowly ex-
wheel and first year law student (albeit for the second
But when the smoke cleared, there we were eating
up all those nasty things we thought about Coleman's
chances for success.
And there was Coleman, clutching the student
court decision that the hiring of AMS officials for the
summer was unconstitutional.
And carefully avoiding saying "I told you so."
For, indeed Mr. Coleman pointed out as early as last
April that hiring that potential bridge hand of Messers.
Hender, Sommers, McAfee, etc. was not quite cricket.
And, ducking the scorn that was heaped high on
him, he has finally plunged through to a smashing vindication of his belief in legal redress for a wrong decision
by a government.
' The only question is, what does it all mean?
Student court says that the unconstitutional freeloaders won't have to put their loot back into the AMS
treasury, which is probably a fair decision since these
unconstitutional free-loaders might have been able to
get a constitutional summer job if they hadn't been
working for the AMS.
All it means to us, then, is a shake of the head with
hindsight over the organization's failure to somehow
or other decide about hiring before the summer, and a
shudder for the future of the AM mess.

at the polling booths last Wednesday, but it is just that sur-
reptitiousness which makes
the act more repulsive.

constituency, the numbered
ballots were being matched
with numbers on the voting
list, so that all a member of
the ruling Brock junta needed
to do to find an offender was

corresponding ballot number
on the list.

The campus clowns have
done it again.
This time it's collecting
toilet seats. How peculiar.
Such radical tendencies must
surely be indicative of the
character of EUS members.
There are only two reasons
for collecting toilet seats:
1) There is something on
the seats that is worth the effort of taking them from
every campus toilet.
2) They want to make sure
everyone else is as full of it
as themselves.

shattering to be considered a
senile "man of yesterday" at

nevertheless, your editorial

Perhaps I shouldn't ask for
more—indeed, it is only with
utmost timidity that I humbly
point out that the said editorial unfortunately missed the
point entirely.
For I heartily agree with
you that "tygers" fighting for
honest and effective government are vital to the democratic process on campus.
I see no purpose in destructive personal criticism which
offers an alternative in the
area of policy, but I greatly
favour constructive criticism.

and B.C. and has studied

Here, Mr. Jackson talks
with Page Friday's Pat Hor-
PF: Father Jackson, we'd
like to start off by discussing
your statement that there is
no supreme being. What do
you feel God is, or is there a
God at all?
JACKSON: Well, it's very
difficult to answer this sort
of question,
"Is there a
G o d ?", because there
are inherent
kinds of difficulties in the
wording o f
I the question
HORROBIN itself. As a
Christian, I would say we
only know God as he reveals
himself. For the Christian,
of course, this supreme revelation is in the person of
Jesus  Christ.
PF: And yet you say there
is no supreme being.
PF:   Well,   what   do   you
mean    by    supreme    being
JACKSON: That Jesus
Christ didn't play the part
of a supreme being and if
he is the revelation of God,
as Christians believe him to
be, he in no sense had control of everything.
He didn't speak and behave as if he had the whole
of the universe and everything in the universe connected to himself with a
series of strings. He didn't
have control of everything
in the universe and it would
seem to me to mean that
God is not a supreme being.
I think the view of a supreme being is that God has
control  over  everything.
And to me it's perfectly
obvious any view of God
that's ever been held leaves
big holes all over the place,
inasmuch as it seems that
God doesn't have control of
So if there is a God, we
can't speak of him as being
a  supreme  being.
PF: This leaves quite a
bit of responsibility up to
the individual as to what he
does in the world, since
there is no-one to whom he
can pass on the blame, there
is no overseeing God who is
JACKSON: Right. The
French writer Albert Camus
was an atheist, and the reason he was an atheist was
because he felt traditional
Christian theism robbed man
of the responsibility and
freedom which was man's
lot in the world.
PF: You have said that the
father figures, the authoritarian figures are dead in this
area. What implications do
you think this has in politics,
in the family — how would
you expand on this?
JACKSON: I would say in
those areas the implication
is the development of political and social awareness
among students in the universities.
PF: You say political and
social. What types of social
awareness do  you  see?
JACKSON: It seems to me
that students no longer are
prepared to allow adults to
structure society, that they
want to have something to
say about the structuring of
it themselves.
Students are, I think, rebelling against the kind of
social attitudes a lot of
adults have and I think the
rise of the beatniks, the hip
group, the far-out left, the
new left, are all indications
that students feel there are
other quite valid social attitudes besides those which
adults regard as safe.
After all, the pressure of
students is becoming much
more apparent in social life
and why shouldn't there be
a vast variety of social attitudes which we can tolerate
and which we can look upon
with sympathy. There's
nothing inherently wrong,
immoral, about people growing beards, wearing different styles of clothing. As a
matter of fact, there's nothing inherently wrong about
people going without clothes
at all.
It's highly questionable
whether a lot of social attitudes really have any moral
basis at all. They're a part of
*■*> $**•"

custom, wont, tradition; but
in themselves are really
quite relative.
PF: You don't feel, as
some people might, that any
change in the status quo will
lead to anarchy, to lawlessness?
JACKSON: No, not at all.
For instance, someone recently made the comment
that if a present-day Conservative from England were
to come across to Canada he
would probably find that the
New Democratic Party was
much more representative
of where he stoo d politically
than the Progressive Conservative Party. This can
actually lead to a deeper and
wider sense of responsibility
rather than anarchy. I think
that science itself would
have- never progressed in
any way if someone had
said, "Well, now, this is
PF: It WAS said for a
JACKSON: Yes — you
see? It seems to me there
are just as great varieties of
political awareness, of political structures which are
possible and the same thing
applies to society.
Now if we could just go
back for a moment to this
business of the father figure
—I don't think we in any
sense now see ourselves patterning ourselves on what
our fathers were like. Or
necessarily on what adults
are like.
I think students in particular see themselves developing new styles of life and
the styles of life which they
are, I think, developing is
one which arises in a certain
situation and has a certain
validity for them in the
But they don't intend to
make any kind of ideology
out of their style of life, nor
to look for an ideology to
back it up.
PF: Do you think that
society in general, the larger
adult society, is going to accept them on their own
JACKSON: Well, I think
there are some (adults) who
will because there are some
adults who see students as
part of the adult world.
There are some who—whenever students begin to express an opinion or to do
something which adults don't
regard as being safe — put
pejorative statements out,
such as, "Don't be infantile,"
or "Learn to be responsible."
PF: "Responsible" to
whom, is always an interesting question.
JACKSON: Exactly. That
is, should students be responsible so adult attitudes
will in no sense be questioned, threatened, or disturbed? It's not that fathers
are no human beings and not
worthy of respect. But they
are only worthy of the respect which should be accorded to all human beings.
PF: You have said, we
understand, that God is what
is inside a person and What
is between you and other
people. Would you elaborate?
JACKSON: That is difficult to say in so many
words. Certainly God as we
see him in the Bible is the
god of a people. They are
called a chosen people. Now,
this doesn't mean they are
a favored people because I
think the Old Testament
pretty well indicates they
are anything but favored.
They were his people and he
was known in and by his
people — and he was known
by what he did.
PF: If he's not supreme,
how far does he stretch?
JACKSON: Right. Exactly.
If he's not supreme, how far
does he stretch . . . Now this
is a very difficult area, to
talk about God, and there
are some people who think
that the language about God
is so difficult that we can't
talk about him at all.
This is one of the difficulties of the theologian today,
and particularly that group
called the Death of God
theologians — whose basic
question is "How can we
talk about God at all today?"

self in that school?
JACKSON: I am not a
professional theologian, and
the only way I could describe myself would be that
I'm a student of theology
and theological concerns. I
think I would say I have
considerable sympathies for
this particular school of
PF: What becomes the
status of Jesus Christ in this
school of theology?
JACKSON: To some extent, Jesus Christ represents
the death of God, in that he
died forsaken on a cross,
outside the city walls, on the
city's garbage heap. The person who was seen by some
as being the son of God dies
an ignominious death. He
dies forsaken by God, because the words attributed
to him while he is dying are,
"My God, my God, why
have you forsaken me?"
Well, this cry of dereliction from the cross seems to
indicate that he was completely forsaken by his God.
Does not the crucifixion indicate that in this sense, in
human experience, there is
a death of God?
PF: And yet what Christ
did was offer himself up for
his fellows. Anyway (JACKSON: Yes.) in spite of the
fact there was no one behind
him ot make good his hope
of being salvation for all of
us. He took this step anyway. Now how would you
extend this to what the
ordinary person should do in
in this day and age who also
does not have a god behind
JACKSON: When you say,
"God behind him" what I
believe you're Saying is that
God is seen as some kind of
substance underlying things
or beyond things or giving
meaning to the world.
PF: Taking the responsibility.
JACKSON: Taking the
responsibility   —
PF: Away from you.
JACKSON: Away from
you — Well, in this sense
God IS dead.
PF: The responsibility is
yours —
JACKSON: The responsibility is ours. And perhaps
man's secular understanding
is really freeing man to accept his responsibilities more
deeply all the time.
PF: And you think this
will have definite reverberations in contemporary life,
in political and social life?
JACKSON: Well, I would
hope it would. The difficulty
I see is the development of
technology, of our scientific
self-understanding and of
the scientific way of looking
at things — the ernormous
number of things which we
are able to do — is going
ahead at such an enormous
speed, but our political and
social awareness seems to be
lagging so far behind.
The difficulty I see is that
we may take flight into
some mythological understanding of man as the Nazis
did in Europe in order to
deal with the situation because the situation was so
threatening and so incredibly complex.
This tribal understanding
of man sees man as finding
the meaning for his life and
existence in his tribe and in
his tribal function. We live
in a pluralistic society —
we must recognize that our
understanding of ourselves
and our commitments are
diverse, that it is not now
possible to have one single

are being called away from
the kind of god who is seen
as giving absolute validity
to commitments we make.
None of the commitments
we make are absolute or
ultimate — they are provisional commitments only.
They are very diverse.
PF: Do you think the
church today is relevant to
people's lives? Your church?
JACKSON: A great deal
of what the church is doing
today is irrelevant to the
social and political develop'
ments which are taking
place in the human enterprise. There are small areas,
small pockets here and
there, where there is some
relevance an d this relevance
is seen in the parts where
both laymen and clergy are
I could mention, for instance, the novelist Alan
Paton (Cry, the Beloved
Country) of South Africa
who is an Anglican Christian and who has opposed
apartheid; the archbishop of
South Africa, Joost de Blank
has been a committed and
ardent supporter of racial
There are clergy like Martin Luther King — he's not
an Anglican, but a Baptist—
who have given dynamic
leadership in the Christian
community. What I would
like to say is that the
church, like most institutions, is extremely conservative and it has been very
My suggestion is that the
church will have to radically change in order to be at
all meaningful to the way
man is understanding himself today.
PF: Will it have to change
in doctrine or in approach?
JACKSON: The approach
to man, I believe, will have
to be different.
PF: But is the old doctrine valid? To get back to
the Christian Church idea of
Christ as divine — is this
still relevant?
JACKSON: I think it's
relevant. As soon as a person
makes a statement, 'Does the
Church believe that Jesus
Christ is divine?' one then
has to examine what one
means by divine.
As soon as we sort out
the meaning of the word
divine, we can begin to talk
intelligently about this. I
would say orthodox Christianity is incredibly relevant but it has to be related
to the situation in which
man is, and this is what the
Church is failing to do. The
Church could be relevant.
PF: What aspects of North
American life do you see as
aspects of a possible growing tribal interpretation of
JACKSON: I would see
this as portrayed in Life
Magazine, and in publications like Life, which seek
to undergrid the traditional
tribal view of women, for
Barry Goldwater is another example of an attempt
to develop a kind of tribal-
What may be described
as the American Way of
Life is an indication of this
type of tribalism.
PF: Would you put a value
on this tribalism—is it good
or bad?
JACKSON: My opinion is
that to revert to tribalism
in an atomic age is simply
to revert to the past, to deny
the human enterprise in
terms of the development
of the scientific tradition and
I am not prepared to do this.

Vancouver   hits

What odds that Vancouver will become a major
modern jazz centre?
That's right — on the
west coast circuit with Los
Angeles, San Francisco and
Doubtful ? Maybe — but
it's no longer a matter of
hypothetical speculation.
Ready and waiting on the
Vancouver scene right now
are alto saxist Byron Pope
and trumpeter Warren
Gale. More jazzmen are
waiting for the word to
move here.
Pope and Gale chose Vancouver after a two year
jazz odyssey stretching from
Los Angeles to New York.
Why Vancouver ?
"Primarily for the chance
to be heard," says Pope, an
articulate avante-garde jazz
"Los Angeles is dead for
new talent trying to be
"Vancouver is a sophisticated city and yet there is
nothing really happening on
the local jazz scene.
Pope's assessment is
essentially correct. Since
Don Thompson and Terry
Clarke left Vancouver with
John Handy, there has been
little  local activity.
Pope and Gale could
spark a jazz renaissance in
Vancouver, for these are
two musicians that any per-
son interested in music must
Deeply committed to the
ideas of John Coltrane, Pope
and Gale represent the
new wave of jazz.
During a six month stay
(in New York they were
closely associated with the
Jazz Composers Guild, an
organization made of younger musicians who stand for
more than just avante-garde
The guild is promoting a
new deal for the often subservient and exploited role
usually shackled on the
emerging musician. The
guid has freed its members
through its own record
label—ESP Records—concerts and clubs.
A somewhat less vindictive—but still a co-operative
organization between musicians and audience — could
readily fit in Vancouver
right now.
Things   are   moving   and
the university community is
actively involved:
• A UBC professor is providing rehearsal facilities to
Pope and Gale as they
search for a suitable local
rhythm section.
• Special events chairman
Murray Farr has booked a
noon hour concert featuring
the group on Nov. 30.
• Interested people are
talking about an organization similar to the Arts Club
Theatre, but featuring jazz.
Make no mistake: this
development is long overdue.

Snakes have enjoyed an
enviable position in the history of art and literature.
They have lorded it over
all the other creeping,
crawling or wriggling things.
One such viper has sneaked its poetic way into the
bosom of Rona Murray, and
spewed forth her first book,
The Enchanted Adder.

A poetry of equations:

everywhere. Angels and Eve

The literary sense of the
characters and the landscape of these poems is
second-hand. It is not really
an enchanted world. The
poems don't rise up in their
lengths and curl and sway
to the magic sounds of language.
Poems are too often explicit, ^here are too few
significant darknesses between shrubs and water to
move in. It is as if one
wanted so much to show a
wonderful butterfly in a jar
that the cover is lifted to
see it — and the insect disappears before we have
even a fleeting glance:
It's $2.50 to get into this

is printed with the hallmarks of a Moriss book:

But the conservatism of
the format results in the fading of the type into the
paper with no snakes rising
out, their metaphoric fangs
dripping with printer's ink.

Not with venom, but what
about that numbness of enchantment ?

Give Japan the bomb
William F. Buckley Jr. is
foremost spokesman of the
intelligent right in the U.S.
He's editor of New York conservative weekly, the National Review (circ. 95,000) and
writes a thrice-weekly column carried by 150 U.S.
He garnered some 354,000
votes in the New York mayoralty conteis last month —
his first try at politics.
Those pictures are Buckley.
PF current affairs editor
Stephen Brown interviewed
him when he was in Vancouver recently.
pf: What is your verdict on
Lyndon Johnson?
Buckley: He's a terrific
politician. He doesn't know
the national limits of politics.
His attempt to build political
power through state interference is an example of
some of the excesses of the
late Roman period.
pf: In what way?
B: Government is taking
over our life in education,
manners, literature. It's the
old heresy that government
can fill out your life for you.
pf: What about the U.S.
policy in Viet Nam?
B: I agree with it as far as
it goes but it ought to go
further. There is no strategy
of victory . . . There are odd
"sancturaries" in Viet Nam
which we don't bomb.
pf: Is Hanoi one of these
odd sanctuaries, to you?
B: Yep, yep, yep, yep.
pf: Would you carry the
war to Red China? How far
should the U.S. go?
B: I've been in favor of
pre-emptive strikes on Red
Chinese nuclear facilities for
some time.
The only alternative is to
give the atom bomb to Japan.
Chinese nuclear striking
power will render Viet Nam
We     could     give    Japan
cnbugh A-bombs to deter
Red Chinese nuclear imperialism. The Chinse ought
to be able to elect their own
leaders —- so anything in this
line is in the Chinese's
people's interest.
pf: How far should Japan
be allowed to go against
B: As far as necessary.
The superstition of spreading A-bombs to more nations
is  being rapidly discredited
. . The whole thing could
be addressed in terms of endorsing Japan's sovereignty.
pf: Is the UN effective?
B: No. It ought to be a forum where nations exchange
bribes, conciliations and
whatever else nations do.
But the U.S. should boycott the use of the vote in the
U.S. because we cannot accept
that restraint on our might.
pf: What should
the U.S. do about
B: We should liberate Cuba. Restore
the Monroe Doctrine.
But there's a technical problem —
pf: Getting rid of
B: Yep. If it could
be accomplished by
international insurrection, so much the
better, but it ought
to be accomplished
that's the main point.
Anyone with eyes
to see recognizes that
the population of Cuba is
miserable — that it's a hideous state. It is as imperative
morally as the liberation of
France from the Nazis and
much easier to do.
pf: Are you a John Birch-
B: No, I'm opposed to it.
pf: why?
B: Because they're crazy,
pf: They epitomize the U.S.
conservative to Canadians.
B: Why don't your papers
send correspondents down to
the U.S. and find out (the
facts)? Send them 'collect',
pf: What is your own philosophy?
B: I'm a radical conservative: I try to make conservatism move constantly toward
pf: How do you account for
Canadian parties being a
large step left of their U.S.
B: I don't know
enough about it — I
have some ideas but
they are too half-
baked (to expound).
pf: Do you think
the universities' left-
ness is passed down
— from professor to
student, who later
may become a professor and pass the
same ideas to his
B: There is a lot of
that. The most quintessential liberalism
is in the academy.
Any movement with
i n t e 11 ectual substance will be exemplified in
the academy — look at quintessential Catholicism.
The preponderantly-liberal
intellectuals of America are
evangelistic. Professors feel
they must present the biases
as well as the ideas of liberalism.
pf: What's you view of
Communists being able to
run for office in Canada?
B: I believe Communists
don't have any rights. It's all
what you consider tolerable
... Communism intends genocides, mass warfare. I can't
tolerate error.
pf: Could a Communist
ever run as a Communist in
the U.S.?
B: One did, in Los Angeles,
two years ago. He got 225,-
000 votes.
pf: Do Canadians have a
misconception of U.S. politics?
B: Yeah, a tremendous
one. There's a tendency in
all   nations   to   believe   the
worst of larger powers.
pf: What's an example of
a Canadian misconception?
B: Your remark earlier
that John Birchers epitomize
the U.S. conservative to Canadians.
pf: How strong is the Republican Party now?
B: It has a rough time. It
may never get the presidency in our lifetime
pf: Why?
B: To get a Republican
elected president would require tremendous co-operation from Democrats — so
our main job is to pressure
The Democrats have won
popular approval by perpet-
nating an economic fallacy
and the Republican Party is
losing intelligibility. Only 22
per cent of Americans are
registered Republicans.
pf: Did Goldwater consolidate the Democratic
B: No. A liberal Republican would have been beaten
worse. Goldwater got more
grass roots support, who is
supporting him did some
hard thinking about conservatism and liberalism.
pf: Are you going to take
another crack at politics?
B: I shouldn't think so.
I've done my duty. It's a
pressure party, cultivating
thought against the liberals.
My running in New York
has forced Democrats left, it
drove Republicans back to
take a stand.
If I hadn't run, Lindsay
would have won by a landslide. He wouldn't have been
identified as a phony, schis-
matio Republican.
pf: Did you figure you'd
get as many votes as you got?
B: God no. Thought it
would be about 160,000.1 got

Friday,   November   19,   1965 Camel driver pales before dolls
Women drivers — bah!
Who else but a woman
would suddenly make a left
turn from a right lane?
Who else but a woman
would stop her car at an intersection to let some dumb
mutt cross?
Who else but a woman
would drive 20 mph in a 40
mph zone with her car smack
in the middle of the road,
neatly tying up traffic behind her until some poor nut
gets so nervous he smashes
up his car trying to pass her?
The only vehicle a woman
can drive safely is a baby
Strangely enough, although
they're definitely the scourge
of the highway, women drivers rarely are involved in
car accidents.
That's only because they
avoid accidents by causing
others to have them.
I have statistics to prove
Why is everyone mad at
Eyron Hender? He hasn't
done anything ...
Such a question might be
valid but for the unfortunate
circumstance that Mr. Hender happens to be the AMS
president. Inaction on the
part of our chief executive
would be inexcusable any
year, but in the situations
that have arisen this year, it
has been almost criminal.
My criticism of Mr. Hender is based not on a disagreement over politics, or a
divergence of opinion on
what we each advocate. The
lamentable fact is that Mr.
Hender has no policies and
advocates nothing.
It is difficult not to have
disrespect when that opponent proves his existence
only by what others can say
about him, not by what he
hirr-elf  says   or   does.   The
that behind every man who's
had a traffic accident, there
was a woman somewhere.
Take my car for example.
She used to be a beauty until the day one rammed into
her right front and busted
the fender. (I refer to my car
in the feminine gender because I derive great Freudian
satisfaction from mauling
her gears and viciously
abusing her.)
Who did it? A woman
driver who had seen me a
mile off but didn't use her
brakes until our cars had
After the collision, I went
out to see whether the lady
was all right.
"Oh dear me," she said. "I
haven't had an accident for
such a long time!"
Once in a while you meet
a reckless woman driver. This
variety is the most amazing
because they're likely to do
almost anything.
I was on my way to classes
a few days ago when an
elderly lady in a small foreign job zoomed past me.
Cartesian "cogito ergo sum"
could be reversed, in Mr.
Hender's case, to say "he
doesn't think, therefore he
In substantiation of these
criticisms one could cite the
failure of Mr. Hender to provide a reasonable alternative
to the proposed march on National Students* Day. (The
abortive Fuller Brush campaign idea came only at the
last minute, as a panicky reaction to the MCC's decision
to hold the march regardless
of council.)
There existed, it must be
admitted, reasonable objections to the march, just as
there were justifiable arguments for it. But surely, there
is more to the function of
AMS president than merely
to raise objections. Surely it
is his duty to provide leadership in a positive manner, on
positive policies.
Mr. Hender failed to live
up to this duty at the time of
the march, and he failed once
again with the recent referendum. Most people would
agree that, as it was worded,
the referendum had not much
"So you wanna drag,
I applied pressure to the
gas pedal.
Soon we were on University Boulevard with my car
in the lead. In the rear-view
mirror I saw her weaving in
and out of traffic.
"Well, that lady sure has
guts," I told myself.
She quickly caught up, and
we were driving neck and
neck when she swerved into
my lane to complete her victory.
Thinking of my deflated
male ego, I suddenly noticed
she was coming to a stop.
Tires loudly squealed as I
immediately braked. My car
stopped one foot behind
her's. A little dazed, I started
slowly, watching the lady
tear off at 50 mph.
I didn't give chase.
Today, my only word of
advice to hubbies who want
to give their wives a little
Volkswagen is don't do it!
If she insists, give her a
But why did he not propose an alternative line of
action? Again, his role wns
purely a negative one.
Now we have been told
that the Board of Governors
Will not increase fees if the
Bladen report is implemented. They might as well have
said they will increase fees,
for the Bladen recommendations will not be implemented within the next year.
Although it is too late to
worry about the past, UBC
students should ask themselves if the time has not
come for action.
Let Mr. Hender rest peacefully in the catacombs of
Brock. But perhaps students
should think carefully before
electing another president,
and another council, about
whom it could be asked:
Why is everybody mad at
them? They haven't done
anything ...

Dedalus re-launched in Yiddish epic quest
We Always Take Care Of
Our Own is the story of a
young man's quest for self,
for purpose, for meaning,
set in the acquisitive, devalued, and essentially
mechanistic Twentieth-Century   society.   If  the   theme
We always Take Care Of
Our Own (McClelland and
Stewart. $5.95)
rings a bell, you're right,
but if it seems passe and
overworked, Newman's presentation is not.
The young man, Meyer
Rabinovitch (Hebrew for
Stephen Dedalus), revolts
against the superior attitude
and complacent values of
the wealthy Montreal-Jewish
community,  and,  in  search
ing for his own values and
self, becomes the first and
only Jewish beggar in Montreal.
The desparate efforts at
dissausion and coercion
which are perpetrated by
his horrified family, and by
the Jewish community en
masse, are related with the
sly, wry, slightly self-deprecating sense of humour
which Newman posseess to
an extraordinary degree.
But this is only a minor
aspect of the book which is
really a tour de force of
technique, devices, sources.
In fact Newman's extensive
and formal literary training
is clearly evident in his competent use of the apocalyptic
'moment of truth', the story-
within-a-story, the epic-quest
arche-type and his clever,
delicately balanced juxtaposition of the Christian myth
on the Jewish heritage.
The book makes an honest
attempt to solve the almost
universal problem "of how
to assent to what is useful
and good in that which binds
you to the past and to the
other members of your inherited community, while
remaining open and indeed
reaching out to a larger and
more vital community in the
making." (WATCOOO, p. 45)
That Meyer fails in his quest,
that Newman refuses to
compromise his standards in
order to contrive an apparently satisfactory conclusion,
is simply an expression of
the degree to which he is
morally and personally involved with the problem he
And that is not to say that
Meyer's failure is fruitless.
Newman's vision is rich, if
not complete; his insight is
acute and revelatory if not
faultless; and his understanding of the 20th century
seeker-after-values is warm
and reassuring, if not infinite.
If anyone is still hanging
back, be it known that
WATCOO contains a fine
example of 20th Century
sexuality — good, healthy

Meyer, the Christ-Dedalus
figure, and a luscious, tight-
skirted, full-sweatered figure
named Rachel. In fact the
sexy scenes are about the
only places in the book

the surface—becomes almost

Status quo fighters met
by AUCC, platitudes
for Canadian University Press
The 1965 CUS congress
adopted a policy supporting
the abolition of tuition fees
as the first step in equalizing
educational opportunity.
At the end of the congress
the idea of the Oct. 27 National Student Day was
approved and the student
councillors returned to their
largely unconvinced campuses.
Ken Drushka was editor of
Toronto's Varsity 1963-64. A
sometime reporter for the
Globe and Mail, this year he
is on staff of the Student
Union for Peace Action, and
the Canadian Union of Students.
This is part one of a two-
part assessment of what National Student Day meant.
On Oct. 6, the Bladen Re-
port was released, recommending increased spending for
university operating and capital costs, but advocating the
retention of tuition fees.
CUS publicly labelled the
report a "status quo report"
because it did not advocate
abolition of fees and student
councils across the country
began debating National Student Day programs.

vision of a nation-wide manifestation of student concern
began to fade as council after

programs and, in many cases

As National Student Day,

to face the problem of student
financing .

of a special committee to
stage a march of concern to

AUCC was to meet. Immediately an ad hoc committee —
the March of Concern Com-
mtitee ranging from communist to conservative in political affiliation — was formed.

The MCC forced the council to hold a referendum on
the proposed march, which
was supported by two-thirds
of the 5,000 students who
On Oct. 27 more than 3,000
students marched two miles
through the rain and confronted the AUCC in the person of its president, Dr. J. A.
The latter made a few in-
nouclous remarks about believing in the ideals expressed by the students, who responded by asking when action would be taken.
A small delegation met
with the AUCC directors, and
the students.
During the next two days
it became evident to observers that a split was developing within the AUCC over
the issue of student financing.

When the student aid resolution came up Dr. Corry
rose to speak and there was
an audible gasp when the
delegates realized what he
was saying.
He admitted that he had
delivered a series of platitudes two days previous
when he spoke to the marchers and said he had been terrified that he would have to
answer their questions because he would have been
forced to deliver the AUCC

Dr. Corry continued to talk
about the seriousness of the
students, which he said he
would never forget, and ended by urging that the whole
matter of student aid be referred to a committee for
further study.
The delegates relaxed and
hastily passed the resolution.

the necessity of confronting
an issue head-on and resolving it openly and honestly.

Six years ago last July, I first met Lenny Sparks.
He was sitting on the sands of Sunset Beach tossing
stones into the quiet waters of False Creek.
Two weeks earlier, he had lost his Canadian middleweight boxing crown to a half-breed from Lethbridge. Eighteen days before that, he was at ringside when the Swede
with the thunderous right hand, known as Ingemar Johansson, floored the man with the china chin, Floyd Patterson,
for the seventh time in the third round to win the World's
heavyweight championship in Yankee Stadium.
Sparks, a native of Nova Scotia, is a personal friend of
Paterson. They are of the same religion, race and box in a
similar style.
• • •
Sparks was nearly in tears when he told how Paterson
refused to stay down even though he knew he lost the
fight. "He has a lot of heart and loves the game," Lenny said.
"He doesn't fight for the money, cause he has enough, he
boxes for the love of boxing. He is what you would call
"a nice guy."
"That's how many guys make it big in this sport," he
said as he picked a pebble from the multi-million on the
beach. "One in a million, if he doesn't get his brains scattered, make the big money before it is too late, A guy
should quit while he is ahead, but not Floyd — he just wants
to fight for fighting's sake."
Sparks had no chance for an education. The only schooling he learned was with his fists and as everyone rightly
knows, Canadian fighters, whether champions or not, don't
have it easy, because the pay-off isn't big.
How many fighters made the money and retired with
it, he asked?
• • •
I named only one, in Rocky Marciano. "Yeh, that's right,
Lenny said, and look at the guys that had it, and what have
they got now? Namely Joe Louis, Walcott, Dempsey. And
what about Max Baer? He spent a million in one year and
retired broke."
That is one of the big reasons fighters get beaten financially, Sparks said, as he pointed to a shapely brunette
sway past us in a undercut bikini." "That and booze."
"Nope, the ring ain't the place for nice guys unless you
want to get your brains beat out. When you make enough
to invest for a suitable business, then that is the time for
retirement. Because as you get older, you slow down and
become a target for a big punch which could finish you for
good," Lenny said with a Maritime drawl.
• • •
"Floyd might get that title back, maybe he won't but
when and if he does will it be worth it?" he queried.
That was the last time I saw Lenny Sparks. And today
he is a happier man, because he won the middleweight
championship last month.
Is that a good omen for Floyd who goes after the Heavyweight title Monday in Las Vegas against Cassius Clay?
Hardly, because those words of advice that Sparks' told
me six years ago are a boxer's words of wisdom: "The ring
ain't the place for nice guys."
