Graeme Vance said Thursday.
Vance said he is considering
setting up a patrol of student
councillors to enforce Brock
Management rules and force-
ably exict any person caught
disobeying them.
He said the AMS executive
is asking students politely for
help to clean up Brock litter.
"But if the that small segment of the student body responsible disregard this request the blue boys will start
bouncing," he said.
''We don't want to do this because it would be a ridiculous
waste of time," Vance said.
"But if people don't start
pulling their weight, we will."
The AMS executive has been
concerned about the noon-
hour accumulation of garbage
and used dishes around Brock
for some time and approached
Buildings and Grounds regarding it, he said.
B and G superintendent Tom
Hughes said, staff re-arrangement resulted in a decrease of
day staff and increased night

Nikita Khrushchev has retired as premier of the USSR, and
one UBC expert believes he did
so voluntarily.
"At a Kremlin meeting Wednesday night Khushchev requested release from duty,"
Slavonics professor Dr. H. E.
Kominois said at a press conference Thursday.
The release was given at a
second meeting held Thursday,
he said.
Dr. Rominois said his information came from English and
Russian short-wave transmissions he monitored.
Khrushchev's successor, Al-
elei Kosygin, and Kosygin's
aide, ex-president Leonid
Brezhnev, are thought to hold
the same ideas about communism as Khrushchev, Dr. Rominois stated.

Why pink?
'No invasion
Here's inside view of pink slims
Ubyssey Women's Angle
Why all the excitement over
pink slims?
Why    the     discrimination
against red slims or yellow or
black ones?
I mean, why pink, anyway?
A     downtown     columnist
made a geographical distribution    study    of    pink    slims
throughout B.C. this summer.
•    •    •
A Ubyssey columnist added
his two cents.
Everybody's   talking   about
PINK   slims  and   I'd like   to
know "why.
•    •    •
Personally, I like red slims.
They wiggle just as well as
pink slims. They can be worn
just as tight. And they're just
as hard to get on.
But maybe I've   missed the
I haven't noticed an invasion of pink slims anywhere.
So I asked my friends—girl
They said:
"Why pink?"
But one girl said: "I like
pink slims. I think boys like
them, too."
Ah so!
•    •    •
Maybe what she's got and
what I haven't got is one pair
of pink slims.
But even she hadn't noticed
a two-legged invasion in pink.
So I'm inclined to think it's
a simple matter of projection.
It goes like this: Men want
us to wear what they want so
they make us think that
EVERYBODY'S wearing what
we should want to wear.
•    •    •
It makes sense!
Thus the moral: If men get
excited enough to write stories
about what they want us to
wear, and if we want men to
get excited about us, then we
should wear what they get excited about us wearing, i.e.
pink slims. Page 2

Do you know what the most comfortable thing in the
world is?
It's the ultra-modern dental
chair displayed at the Pre-
Dental Society exposition
Thursday noon.
Yesterday, in Brock Lounge,
I tested the blue leatherette-
i-pholstered chair.
It was Heaven.
The chair automatically folded back and I relaxed completely.
Until with a push of a button
the operator whipped out a set
of drills.
The demonstrator called the
$6,000 unit the Cadillac of dental equipment.
The display was held yesterday in the Brock lounge from
11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Eight local dentists and two
members of the Faculty of
Dentistry were there to answer
students' questions.
Scattered around on green
felt-covered tables were hundreds of pamphlets on all
facets of modern dentistry.
Eric Weiser, president of the
Pre-Dental Society, said if the
display caught your eye you
can contact him at FA 5-7025,

meeting Wednesday in Buchanan 204.
He said he is especially interested in attracting girls planning a career in Dental

The Homecoming Dance decorating committee attracts all
kinds; the type that work for
nothing and the others.
An advertisement in Thursday's Ubyssey said students are
needed to decorate the Field
House and Armory for the
Homecoming Dances at $1 an
hour and $2 for overtime.
Chuck Campbell, vice-president of Arts Undergrads, explained:
"It's easier to pay students
than solicit for free workers."
"Although we have fifty volunteers working for free we
still need more help to guarantee a financial success."
The Homecoming dance is
sponsored by both the Arts and
Forestry faculties.
"We have been allotted $200
each to see the jobs of decorations and ticket collection are
done," Campbell said. "Therefore, we have an obligation to
pay some of the help."

the tree-lined path leading to
the Buchanan Building, minding my own business and meditating in a learned fashion on
the character of Richard III,

Bouquet daze
Pull on your rosy red glasses and stand back: The
Ubyssey is going on a bouquet binge.
We have come out of our fog of cynicism long enough
to see several people deserving of recognition, people
whose deeds we don't usually see because we're so
busy blasting  the  bumblers, babblers  and  boobs.
Today is flower day, and forthwith the petal parade:
First, a humble Thank You to retiring chairman of
the Board of Governors, George Cunningham, whose
29 years of service have seen UBC through its greatest
period of expansion.
Wednesday, UBC students bestowed on him the
highest honor within their power to give — the Great
Trekker award — and he is more than deserving of it.
A bouquet also to UBC student George Hungerford
and his buddy from Toronto, Roger Jackson, whose rowing captured Canada's first Gold Medal of the 1964
Olympics at Tokyo.
The coxless pairs is traditionally a strong European
event which Canadians just aren't supposed to win,
but Hungerford and Jackson whomped the world's best
with  a  borrowed  shell and two short  weeks  practice.
More flowers to Dean Walter Gage, warm-hearted
and sponge-shouldered money-man to generations of
students, for his efficiency in handling the federal loan
plan. And also for the aplomb with which he ignored
or rebuffed politicos and pressmen who were so eager to
holler "Cheat!" on the plan.
An orchid to Kim Cambell, pert, purty and plucky
first-ever female frosh president, for her fortitude at
the Foresters' logrolling contest. And also for her determination to save the frosh from not only themselves
but the upperclassmen as well.
A good luck garland to UBC's faculty members in
their forthcoming fight to win a salary hike from the
A handful of posies to our own Page Friday staff
under Editor Dave Ablett for a job well done. They
have created The Ubyssey*s first successful magazine
supplement   in   many   years.
And last a great big skunk cabbage to our whining,
stomping French Canadian friends' who managed to
show themselves so well when the Queen arrived in
Quebec. They should have remembered that she wasn't
invading the place—she was invited to come.

It's the strangest case of the pot calling the kettle
black that we have come across.
The local Communists have refused to debate with
an American John Birch society because, of all reasons,
the Birchers are an extremist conspiratorial sect.
Which proves that moderation in the pursuit of
extremism is a virtue.
Or something.

Easy registering, the computer way
Registration at UBC is like
lining up for a Beatles concert. And it's going to stay
that way.
According to tabulating
supervisor Jim Poole, pre-
registration by computer
won't be attempted at UBC
for  years .   .  .
In spite of the fact that the
University of Alberta turned
over its registration problems
to the computing center this
In spite of the fact that
Washington State University
gave the task of scheduling
classes to its electronic computers.
•     •     •
But not UBC.
"You come to me with reports that computors are being
used for registration at other
universities and ask why we
don't have them here," Poole
"Well we don't have to be
the first to try them out. Let
some other university experiment and iron out all the
problems. Then maybe we'll
use them."
He was smiling and hospitable. He was also unruffled
and unwavering.
•    •    •
But then so was I. In September I spent three hours
huddled under a leaking umbrella waiting to have my
courses approved.
One month is not long enough to forget such a dripping affair.
Why must UBC wait for
other universities to do the
testing? Why not be a leader
in the field rather than a follower?
Surely the annual bottleneck in the Buchanan and
Physics buildings and in the
Armory is living proof that
some part of the registration
system needs to be improved.
At Washington State, where
experiments    with     machine
registration have been going
on since 1962, the computers
were given the complicated
task of scheduling classes.
On registration day the students' choice of classes were
recorded on "marked sensed"
cards and fed into a computer.
The machine then matched the
information with the schedule of classes and the number
of seats available.
If a class section was filled
up the computer tried 500 different combinations to get the
student into another class before giving up.
•     •    •
The whole procedure takes
less than ten seconds. It frees
about 100 faculty advisors
from the job of matching students with classes.
In Alberta the machines
worked in the same way. The
computer analyzed a student's
proposed curricula and formulated a timetable. Again it
had a maximum of 10 seconds
to "think" on each card.
But what about us?
Back to supervisor Poole.
He claims that mechanized
registration at UBC is far
away for two reasons. The
first is—naturally—money.
•    •    •
His computing center hasn't
the necessary machines nor
the money to buy them. The
other objection is time. According to Poole the registration cut-off date would have
to be mid-August if UBC's
registration were to be put in
the computer's hands.
So we're back to where we
started. It looks as if the only
happy face at registration
time again next year will be
that of the Boss of the University—-the cashbox.
His face is constantly aglow
as he listens to the soft rustle
of money pouring out of our
wallets and into his vaults.
In the meantime we stand
in lines. Let's hope it doesn't

|»y| ISSISSIPPI — Working
■"■*• with Negroes is not the
exclusive domain of civil
rights workers in Mississippi.
The large and well-organized White Knights of the
Ku Klux Klan (KKK) has
shown a keen interest in the
Members of the Klan have
appeared in at least three
cases in Mississippi this summer concerning the death of
Negroes, or persons sympathetic to the civil rights
And members of the KKK
are suspected in the slaying of three young civil
rights workers in Neshoba
county early this summer.
Their acts of violence have
shock value but the twisted
logic behind the movement
is fascinating and more
shocking in the long run to
the northerner.
In Neshoba county the
KKK men had a booth at
the county fair.
The Klan-Ledger, official
publication of the KKK, was
distributed "so that the real
truth regarding our position
in Mississippi will be known
to the whole world."
Here's the philosophy of
the Mississippi KKK member and his justification for
distinguishing between black
and white:
The Klansmen point out
proudly that the KKK is a
Christian organization and
"has no intention of persecuting anyone."
They feel, as Christians,
they are "humbly obedient
to the Will of Almighty God,
and recognize the fact that
the black man is one of His
creatures, and is, therefore
under His protection."
"This Divine protection
does not, however, extend to
social equality and integration with the white man, the
scriptures clearly show."
The KKK then indicates
that Genesis 49, 1-33 and I
Cor. 15-39 clearly show that
there are many species within "one flesh."
The average, intelligent
Negro, say the Klansmen,
realizes that his brothers are
bestial and that he needs the
protection of the white man.
"No intelligent Negro
would want to live in a society governed by Negroes
and all Negroes live in fear
of each other."
The civil rights workers
trying to register Negro voters are branded Communists. They upset the basic
laws of nature with their
troublesome meddling and
are really trying to bring
about the overthrow of
(white) government, the
logic goes.
Anyone    trying   to   overthrow governments must be
pretty  bad—communistic  at
"1    least — and committing acts
I    of treason.   .-<'      .
Hence, any suppression of
the civil rights workers is
an act of valor to the KKK
and acts to stop these "Communists" are justified.
Remember that the three
civil rights workers Schwer-
ner, Chaney and Goodman,
were murdered in Neshoba
The KKK claims the civil
righters were, as all so-
called civil rights workers
are, "Communist revolutionaries, actively working to
undermine and destroy
Christian civilization."
And just who murdered
the communist revolutionaries?
One of two groups, says
the KKK. American patriots
who are determined to resist
communism by every available means; or the Communists themselves for propaganda purposes.
And were the KKK men
involved in the murder of
the three workers?
"Only to the extent of doing everything possible to
expose the truth about the
Communist and political aspects of the case.
"We are primarily concerned with protecting the
good name and integrity of
the honest people of the
State of Mississippi against
the physical and propaganda
attacks of Communist agitators and the press.
Most white citizens in
Mississippi share the belief
that the Nego is somehow
savage and definitely mentally inferior to the white
They do not all blame the
Communists, as does the
KKK, but the myth of inferiority runs through their

a mark of the inferior man,
a bestial man ready to tear
his fellow Negro apart.

The white Mississippians
I spoke to hedged about the
problems of the Negro.
Only once, during a tour
of a historic monument, the
first Mississippi state legislature, did a young lady
burst out: "If they aren't inferior why do they live in
such a filthy manner?"
The vicious circle starts.
He lives this way because
the white man refuses to
give him the paying jobs.
And as long as the paying
jobs are lacking he will continue to live in "filthy" conditions. And because of his
filthy conditions he will be
continued to be called inferior and unworthy of the
very jobs he needs.
I spoke to the Rev. Warren McKenna, head of the
Council of Churches organization working in Mississippi.
He works out of a dingy
office in the Negro section
of Jackson, the capital of
the state.
"The Negro is considered
inferior and is the victim of
a gigantic myth."
"First as a slave and now
as a second  class  citizen.
"You speak of a large and
only covertly discriminated
Chinese population in Vancouver. Your Chinese have
not had the years of inferiority complex pounded into
them that the Negro has had
to face."
"This has been  going on

rights workers who will

this winter and the press
won't hear much about the
beatings of civil rights workers.

a hot winter, too.

This is another in a series
of articles appearing in The
Ubyssey and Page Friday
on what he found in the
slate. A visitor to Castro's Cuba
tinds a big contrast in
results of two revolutions
around the Bay ot Mexico
It is rather ironic due to
American government policy
of harrassment and attempted prevention of travel to
Cuba, that any Canadian
who wants to go to Cuba
must go through Mexico
City first.
It provides a very good
comparison of what the conditions in a Latin American
country before its revolution are, and what they are
after a socialist revolution.
In short: dirty, then clean.
You notice that about Cuba
and Mexico. Mexico City
smells.  Cuba  does not.
These are two countries:
one with a social revolution,
and one with an ossified
revolution, that happened in
1911, and has been "institutionalized" so far that the
major political party, which
pretends to be a party of reform, is called the Party of
the Institutionalized Revolution.
Considering it for a while,
one comes to the conclusion
that this .so-called revolution is not one at all.
What has it done for Mexicans? Almost nothing. Going to Mexico from Vancouver is sort of like going from
downtown Vancouver to
Skid Row.
Mexico is like a million
square miles of East Hastings. Well, you can manage
not to see what East Hastings is like.
But it is a little harder to
avoid the fact of poverty in
Mexico. You absorb it
through your nostrils, all the
time. In some places the
smell is terrible. No wonder.
In the slums of the city,
where most of the people
live, there are open sewers
on the streets. And children
who have no shoes play on
these Fame streets, beside the
open sewers.
The government pretends
that it has plans to alleviate
the poverty. We went to a
government housing project.
The guide explained that it
was built to house 75,000 of
the poorer families.
But when we asked further about this we discovered that the rent charged
would be one-half of a poorer
worker's monthly wage.
Consequently, nearly all the
apartments are inhabited by
middle-class people and government    workers,    which

leaves only the slums for the
poor and the unemployed.
Or, a lot of them live on the
You actually see children
sleeping in doorways and
under store fronts.
But the most appalling
thing about Mexico is the
way people are treated, and
the way they treat each
other. That, I think, is what
has changed most in Cuba
since before 1958. And that
is one of the most important
things about a revolution.
People become friends, not
enemies who take the bread
from each other's mouths,
not because they want to,
but because they have to eat
But if you happen to be
someone who regards people
only as a source of profit,
then you will never be able
to understand what the Cuban Revolution means. And
that is precisely how the
U.S. government regards
people. And hence it does
not understand Cuba. The
two governments have opposing concepts of what man
is. In Cuba it is the mind
and spirit that count, and
not money.
Most of us on the tour did
not like having to be tourists in Mexico. That is what
we were, of course, to the
Mexicans — we looked like
Americans because of the
way we dressed and, compared to Mexicans, we had
money. So we were treated
as  tourists.
You want to buy marijuana? Or other drugs? Or
a woman? Just ask a taxi-
driver, and you will probably get what you want.
But if you take the trouble
to look at him, you will
probably see contempt in his
eyes. For you. For you white
American tourist, who think
you are the only ones who
have the right to hold others
in contempt, because others

American who assumes that

pink refrigerators and $15,-
000 necklaces, but prevent
others from getting them because that would spoil the
fun for you.
One day we went to the
Pyramids to the Sun and to
the Moon. At the bottom of
the Pyramid to the Sun there
w-as a crippled man of about
50 years old, who had only
one arm.
He was sitting on a bench,
making his living weaving
straw flowers with his toes.
An appreciative American
tourist-type audience was
looking on approvingly,
thinking how clever — and
weren't the straw flowers
nice—and occasionally even
buying one or two.
It is not only the children who have bare feet. It
is almost any Mexican you
care to look at — except for
the businessmen, of course.
They are the ones who can
look at this mess and think
of how much work they can
get out of all these starving
people before they do actually starve to death.
If you are a businessman
you do not have any oblga-
tions to human beings — you
only associate with them if
they can be useful to you.
If you did think about these
conditions, you would soon
be one of those awful Communists, too.
On the topic of feet: there
are thousands of shoeshine
boys in the city. Children
of about 12 years old, who,
even according to Mexican
law, are supposed to be in
school. But they aren't. They
are trying to make enough
money to eat.
They are usually shining
the black, already-shiny
shoes of some businessman,
who isn't thin like the children usually are, and who
doesn't even seem to notice
that the child who is shining his shoes exists — he
calmly reads his newspaper,
or if he hasn't a newspaper,
looks over the head or
straight through this human
being at his feet. He might
happen to notice as he goes
away that his shoes look better than when he came.
After having heard all
this, it might be interesting
to know that Mexico is considered the richest of the
Latin American nations, and
has the highest living standard.
But on the drive back to
the city from the pyramids,
there were about 20 signs
—- I counted — painted on
fences,  in support of Cuba.
Usually it is VIVA CUBA,
or VIVA FIDEL but one sign
that said, OUT WITH BET-
ANCOURT.     Revolutionary
movement does exist, in
Mexico as well as in the
other Latin American nations.
And the United States
government is inadvertently
doing all it can to promote
these revolutions.
This is what I saw in Mexico: immense poverty, filth,
disease; workers with no
jobs; children who if they
do manage to live through
the early years, have no
chance of going to school;
women who are constantly
bearing children they haven't the money to feed; and
people who live on the
streets because they have no
homes to go to. Even the
dogs are starving.
In Cuba, which six years
ago was poorer than Mexico,
I saw all these things being eliminated. And that is
what a socialist revolution
in a Latin American country, what we call an "underdeveloped" country, means:
it means that the people in
that country finally have the
right to live as men and

Quixote gets

over script
— likes cast
Ah, it's a foine people the
Irish are, but there's some
kinds of theatre they ought
to be  after leavin'   alone.
One kind is tragedy.
Tonight and Saturday the
Emerald Players will wind
up their eight-day run of
Paul Vincent Carroll's The
Wise Have Not Spoken—and
only the cast's top-flight talent will save the script from
choking on its own tedium.
Carroll's tragedy is over-
long and overboiled, but the
Emerald Players rise above
plot and script deficiencies
to register a well-worth-seeing performance at the new
Metro Theatre.
PF  Seven
First honors distributed
to the excellent non-professional cast must go to
Ann Grainger as Una and
Des  Smiley  as  Francis.
Una is a sensitive, warmhearted Irish colleen portrayed with understanding
and realism by Miss Grainger.
Francis, the once-idealistic Republican, comes across
strongly as an embittered
and crippled victim of the
Spanish  civil   war.
Babs McConville puts in
a convincing portrayal of
Catherine, the elder sister
whose sanity is fast waning.
Des McManus does a generally fine job as Peter, the
brother trying to save the
family farm, but his deep
involvement in the role
causes his own Scottish burr
to override his stage Irish
dialect  at times.
Supporting actors Ray
Craig, Pat Warren, John
Donohoe, Cecil Glass and
Lance Walker register performances varying only from
good to damned good.
Main fault with The Wise
is length. The Players' attempt to go all the way with
Carroll's ending — which
mixes rifle fire, dying and
philosophizing to interminable lengths — unfortunately
weakens the overall performance.

type of adventure which has
been churned out for years.
It  is anything but.
In 1872, in Natal Colony,
94 British soldiers defended
a mission station called
Rourke's Drift against an
army of 4,000 Zulu warriors
which had, a few hours before, wiped out a column of
1,500 infantry.
After the battle, which
lasted a day and a night,
eleven VC's were awarded
—the highest number won
in a single engagement.
Directors Cy Endfield and
Stanley Baker have constructed the most detailed
and realistic recreation of
a battle ever filmed. The
Zulus are shown, not as a
gang of spear-tossing, gibberish - screaming savages,
but as a nation and people
with customs and a distinct
army and military tactics
of  their   own.
Nobody on the British side
attempts to justify the action
and nowhere is there a flag.
The cameras superbly establish the terrain, style and
pace of the battle and, at
one point, in one long sweep,
cover all 4,000 Zulus lined
on hilltops surrounding the
The terrifying charges of
the warriors and the fury of
hand to hand combat are
brought home more forcefully than any picture advertising a cast of thousands.
Michael Caine and Stanley Baker are the two com
manding officers. Their conflicts are dramatic but not
obtrusive. Jack Hawkins,
out of khaki, is good as a
preacher driven to the bottle and the edge of madness
by the thought of his parishioners killing each other.
No detail of battle strategy on either side is obscure
and Baker and Endfield
keep the fury of the thing
at a steady pace, but know
enough to stop before the
audience's senses are dulled
by a surfeit of action.
Greek tragedy
on film makes
One must, in criticizing
a film based on a play, consider whether or not the
film stands by itself. Cacoy-
annis' Eleclra, now playing
at the Varsity, is based on
the play by Euripides.
In the legend, Agamemnon returns victorious from
the Trojan wars and is murdered by his adultress wife,
Clymnestra and her lover,
Aegisthus. Orestes, son of
Agememnon, is hustled
abroad to safety and his sister, Electra, remains. Upon
Orestes' shoulders fall the
duty of punishment and revenge.
The film itself is very
well done. Cacoyannis does
not have to rely on the reputation of Euripides to
achieve success. Electra did
not, as some films of Shakespeare have, degenerate into
a film record of a stage
production. This is attributable to three factors—Irene
Papas (Electra), Walter Las-
sally's photography and
'something else' which, for
convenience, I shall call
direction. Irene Papas is an
excellent Electra and seems
to carry the whole film.
Cacoyannis achieves a
very acute sense of suspense
in the film by drawing each
scene out past the point of
endurance. The obvious pitfall here is stark boredom.
However, due to good editing and Lassally's disciplined photography, the pitfall
is easily avoided. The result
is suspense and foreboding
worthy of Hitchcock.
Coupled with this temporal extragance is the use of
natural sounds and, most important, silence. The director
does not resort to strident
music to create suspense;
he lets the film and the
story do it for him. This reliance on only the simplest
of tricks is the true mark
of an artist.
Cacoyannis has solved
many difficult problems
here: adaptation of the play,
creation of suspense and
control of the actors. One
big problem in a film of this
type is the Chorus. It would
be easy to simply let the
Chorus walk around looking glum and mysterious.
The Chorus in Electra is
beautifully integrated in the
film. They are almost human, much in keeping with
Euripides' down - to - earth
version of the  legend.
I  had thought,  before going   to  Electra,  that   filmed
Greek tragedy would be  as
dull as oatmeal.
I was wrong.

Harold Town is probably
the most fully achieved
painter in the country today. It takes time to view a
Town canvas, for the monolith* dimensions and technical brilliance sometimes
obscure the emotional content. Town is an artist acutely aware of the tools of his
craft — his paints, brushes,
canvas and subject matter.
The result is a perfect unity
of theme and form, through
which the emotion of the
picture comes as clearly as
the emotion in a T.S. Eliot
poem; Town has succeeded
in producing the objective
correlative on canvas.
This is particularly evident in Children's Crusade
Set, a work with the heraldic theme which Town frequently explores. This painting is divided roughly in
half, the top representing a
medieval town of orange-
circle houses; the bottom, the
blackness of infidel lands.
Some of the houses are
inhabited, but most are vacant because the white-dot
children stream out of the
town, into the blackness,
eventually off the edge of
the canvas world. One cannot view this composition
without a sense of the pathos
of the theme.
The effect of experiencing
a theme so directly is created
again and again. Oracle Set
has a cave quality, created
by color, shape and perspective. Icarus Set counterpoints
a soaring Icarus shape at the
top of the canvas with the
identical shape, shattered, at
the bottom. Summit Meeting — two ominous black
shapes precariously separated by a strip of white —
has a terrifying effect. Parade Set, a panoply of positive and negative shapes
shaken from a floating ball
of color, has all the impact
and intensity of a parade.
Every composition bears
the mark of Town's ingenuity. The Tyranny of the Corner series is Town's solution'
to the problem of corners,
which frequently are not
contributing spaces on the
Vine Set and Galaxy Set
are examples of Town's
awareness of his canvas not
only as a vehicle for expression, but also a media of
expression in its own right.
In Vine Set, whole areas of
canvas are exposed. In some
places it is bare where the
paint has been scraped
away; in others, the canvas
is not painted, but treated so
that one area bleeds into
The whole exposed canvas
area works precisely with
the total composition, but
the textural and color qual
ity  of canvas is never lost.
In Galaxy Set, large areas
of scorched canvas are enclosed by color. (Town frequently scorches his canvas
with a hot iron. In a painting such as Galaxy Set, the
perceptive viewer can actually smell the canvas — a
sensation which contributes
strangely enough, to the total experience of viewers.)
An ingenious painter requires an ingenious viewer.
If you cannot conceive experiencing a theme, or putting your nose to a canvas to
better appreciate a painting,
perhaps you would find the
Town exhibit bizarre. But if
you are at all sensitive to
the complete unification of
media, form and content,
don't miss it.

Pique is at the peak of pique.
Pique is the proposed 1964
version of Ledpharttes—a little
mag with a humorous slant
which appeared last April,
sponsored by a group called the
Young Bourgeois Authors' and
Artists' Association.
But Pique won't be much
more than a proposal unless
AMS comes across with a $500
grant, its editors say.
"We've asked Treasurer Kyle
Mitchell for $500 of the $2,000
AMS Supplemental Allotment," said Pique > editorial
board member Scott McLean
"If we don't get the money,
we'll 'piquet' him," said
Pique's Editor Wayne Nyberg.
Pique will appear in some
form with or without AMS
support, editors said.
"But the size, number of issues, and quality of the magazine will suffer if we don't
get the grant," said McLean.
Pique will be a collection of
student humour and satire on
campus life. It carries the same
name as the old official AMS
humor magazine, defunct now
for about 10 years.
"Anything well-written will
be printed," said Editor Nyberg. "Don't worry about censorship."
Pique will be a welcome substitute for the appalling lack of
humour in the Red Rag, Plank,
Moobyssy and so on, editors
They claim the name Pique
is the surname of an author
who wrote Pique's Pamphlet
for Perverted Penguins about
400 years ago.

One commentator says "tech

Gnup perplexed
by spy reports
Thunderbird football coach Frank Gnup is perplexed.
The Birds migrate south Fri
day night for a game against
San Francisco University and
he still doesn't know what to
expect from his opposition.
It all stems from the fact that
Gnup has in his possession not
one  but two scouting  reports.
Aha, you say, if there's one
thing better than one scouting
report it's two.
Not so in this case. Both reports, received from former
UBC  players now  working in
. .   .perplexed
the San Francisco area, are incomplete and contradictory.
One spy job, for example,
claims that SFU employs a 5-2
defence while the other claims
it's a 4-4.
It may seem incidental to the
uninitiated but the scouting report is an important aspect of
any team's game procedure. Often a report contains a real
gem; a weakness of the opposition's which can be exploited.
Say your team was to receive
a report that another club has
a defensive halfback who can't
keep his eyes off the cheerleaders. On game day you
would have your quarterlback
throw into the lecherous one's
zone each time the band strikes
up, hoping to catch him off-
Of course there are neutralizing factors. There are frailties on your club which the opposition has been cleverly assimilating. For instance, your
quarterback may also like ogling cheerleaders; in which
case you're back where you

I was warming a chair in the student's favorite hide-away
nursing a jug of caffeine and trying to calm my ever restless
nerves when I overheard two boys in red jackets knocking
down the best boxer in the world: Cassius Clay, alias Mohammed Ali.
Now I am the type of guy who usually minds his own
business, like everybody should, but when people start lipping off about something they don't comprehend, then it is
about time I put them straight.
• •      •
For instance, the statement that Cassius had no right to
fight for the title and that he doesn't deserve it is pure garbage. Anyone who knows anything about the fight game can
see what a ridiculous statement this is.
Back in 1954, when Clay was only 12 years old and
weighed a flimsy 85 pounds, some kid stole his bicycle. Instead of fighting the thief, a neighborhood cop persuaded
Clay to learn how to fight first. He did and ever since Clay's
opponents have suffered all because of a bicycle.
Clay knew where he was going then and he got there
ten years later toy dethroning the Big Bear, Sonny Liston.
• •      •
On his way he won The Louisville Golden Gloves in
1958; the National Golden Gloves and National AAU Light-
Heavyweight Championships in 1959 and repeated his performance in the heavyweight class one year later. From there
he went, where every amateur boxer wants to go,- to the
Olympics. Cassius Mjarcellus Clay Ibeat his Polish contender
to a pulp to win the finals in Rome.
As an amateur he won 100 out of 108 bouts. Since he
turned professional in I960' he has won* 18 without a defeat.
If he doesn't deserve the championship, who does?
• •      •
During the discussion, the two boys were joined by a
third (without a jacket). He seemed more ignorant than his
friends. How cap a so-called intelligent person say that Clay
is stupid because he flunked the army exams and taking this
as his evidence, say that the Loud One couldn't cut it at
university. Gentlemen, if I had his money I wouldn't even
care about university.
Bear with me for a moment while I do a little comparing. For example, let us say that the average Engineer makes
about $8,000 annually, if and when he starts working. Well,
the Louisville Lip made eight times that much in just twenty
minutes when he knocked out Alex Miteff on Ocober 7, 1961.
• •      •
A full time UBC lecturer earns about $7,000 per year,
a professor makes around $13,000 annually. That is not too
good compared to Cassius' bundle. He raked in over $65,000
when he sent Archie Moore to the canvas in the fourth round
on November 15, 1962.
Finally, UBC President John B. McDonald was reported
to have made around $22,000 last year. Well, when yon Cassius persuaded the Big Bear to go back to his den last February 26, the loquatious Kentuckian netted about $150,000.
That was a pretty fair sum for 30 minutes work!
So gentlemen, jealousy will get you nowhere. Clay may
not be the smartest but you all must admit he is the greatest
collector of internal revenue agents in the world.
• •      •
To say that Cassius is a poor sportsman just because he
ridicules his opponents with verses of vast conceit is truly
preposterous. Everybody has a gimmick of some sort to use
in this hectic world of ours.
University students use a diploma to gain them employment and money in the (bank. So Cassius uses his lines of
poetry and praise to fill the thousands of seats at ringside.
They all come to see him get severely mauled and sent to
oblivion by his hateful foes.
But lo and behold it is yon Cassius who comes forth the
victor, the great predictor and prettier than ever, laughing
his way to the bank;
There is no reason for people to say that Clay should be
stripped of the title just because he is a Muslim. What difference does that make?
• •      •
The only place Clay should lose the Crown is in the
ring, not outside it The World Boxing Association knows that
Clay will keep the title for quite a while, so they are using
this religion angle to defeat him.
Sonny Liston is an ex-con, yet he kept the title until
Cassius stepped in. Neither race, creed, breed nor background
makes champions. Championships are won and lost in the
So Gentlemen, we can't fight ignorance but we can live
with it; so next time you refer to Cassius Marcellus Clay as
a bum, just look in your wallet because it might be you.

NICKEL...its contribution is QUALITY
Liquid oxygen is the main fuel component
for propulsion of some of the giant rockets
that lift satellites and capsules into space.
Liquid oxygen, or LOX, is stored at minus
297 °F. Previously, economical storage was
hindered by the lack of a tough, low-cost,
low-temperature steel. Inco research developed the 9% nickel steel to answer this requirement. This development was another
example of Inco's continuing research contribution which, for some sixty years, has
led to improved techniques and products.
