Array What price an ambulance?
Big Fanny couldn't talk much
But she whispered well
And Maria did the talking
Don Hume photos
We're OK' Maria
says Fanny says
Big Fanny Storgoff has shown herself ill-qualified for her
role as Sons of Freedom Douldhobor spokesman.
She's lost her voice.
But 4,000 students jamming
the Armory Tuesday heard her
views   anyway.
She answered questions from
a student panel through another
sect member,   Maria  Shlakoff.
Mrs. Storgoff whispered and
Mrs. Shlakoff repeated that:
• The sect wants a commission to investigate t h e whole
Doukhobor problem.
"We are the scapegoats, but
we will take a share of the
blame," she said.
• They plan to enroll their
children in schools and find ac
commodation   as   soon   as   they
are settled.
• They would go to any country that would have them, but
none will.
• Not all the Sons have been
true to their sect vows. (Panel
member Denis Stanley had said
that he had personally seen
drinking among Sons of Freedom.)
Panel members were Ubyssey
managing editor Denis Stanley,
Barbara Bennett, Sharon MacKinnon and Ed Lavalle.
Before the question period a
group of young sect members
sang Doukhobor hymns.
By   HEATHER  VIRTUE
Red tape is the same color
as blood.
And Tuesday night while
an ambulance ploughed
through red tape two students
lay bleeding for forty minutes
in an overturned car on
Marine   Drive.
■   •    •    •
Red tape, says C. W. Paul,
UBC traffic superintendent,
is why an ambulance had to
be called from the city and
rush the injured back to Vancouver General Hospital. Red
tape is the reason there isn't
an ambulance on campus.
Paul says it is practically
impossible to get a campus
ambulance because  of  an  in
volved licensing procedure
for  ambulances.
And, a campus ambulance
would interfere with the private enterprise of downtown
ambulance companies.
But the encumberances of
red tape seem to extend even
further.
Fire Chief Gerard Foran
admitted last year that UBC
c.imost had an ambulance
sonic   time   ago.
But, mysteriously, the deal
fell   through.
Dean of Financial Affairs,
E. D. McPhee, said Wednesday an ambulance isn't needed.
"There aren't enough accidents,"   he said.
The UBC Fire Department
feels the  ambulance  is  neces
sary and Foran said they
would be willing to man it
24 hours a day.
However McPhee said the
Fire Department must have
qualified personnel to man
the ambulance. i
(Firemen are trained in
first aid and in many B.C.
municipalities operate ambulances).
*    •    •
Chief Foran said that besides being closer, a campus
ambulance would have a far
better knowledge of the area
than a downtown ambulance.
Commenting on Paul's
claims of red tape involving
private enterprise, Foran
said, "Business is business
but this is ridiculous."

Student trio tops
Mardi Gras bill
A trio of UBC students will
provide entertainment at the
annual Mardi Gras pep meet.
More than 2,000 students
are expected to turn out at
noon today for the pep meet,
highlighted by The Clansmen,
a   UBC   folk-singing   group.
The week-long festivity,
topped by dances Friday and
Saturday at the Commodore

more than $6,000 for charity.
Queens
rejects
charter
A second university has rejected the proposed NFCUS
Charter of Student  Rights.
Queen's University announced
its rejection of the charter at
the Ontario NFCUS Regional
Congress held last week.
UBC rejected the charter—
and the whole idea of a charter
—two weeks ago.
Jordan Sullivan, president of
the Students' Administrative
Council of University of Toronto, accepted a mandate to rewrite the preamble to the
charter, which has been heavily
criticized by a number of universities.
Stewart Goodings, national
NFCUS president, spoke in favor of the charter as it now
stands.
He said we should "reach for
the stars" in setting our ideals
for such a charter, rather than
accepting lower and more
easily  obtainable  goals.
OTTAWA—Federal Justice Minister Donald Fleming Wed-
neseday denied charges that RCMP officers are investigating
students for left-wing political activities.
The minister's statements were immediately refuted by
Roger McAfee, president of Canadian University Press.
Fleming's denial was in answer to charges by New Democratic Party MP Tom Berger in
the Commons Monday.
In a written reply to Berger's
questions Fleming said the
RCMP is not engaged in interviewing students or teachers
about the political views oi
either students or teachers.
"KNOWN FACT"
McAfee, a former Ubyssey editor, said in Toronto that he
"knows for a fact" the RCMP
have been carrying on investigations.
The Ubyssey and the student:
paper of the University of Toronto, The Varsity, did recent
articles on police surveillance
of students belonging to socialist, ban-the-bomb and communist clubs.
"The only thing I can think of
is that Mr. Fleming must mean
the RCMP is not investigating
students or faculty members
right now," said McAfee.
PAPERS POLLED
He said CUP polled 25 campus newspapers across Canada
seeking information about
RCMP  investigations.
At UBC, reporters found at
least three students who said
they knew of investigations by
undercover officers.
About 30 said they had heard
rumors that RCMP officers were
ROGER  McAFEE
'.   . .  maybe not  now'
on campus masquerading as students and sitting in classes.
Carrying out similar investigations, The Varsity also found
evidence of RCMP probing.
One UBC student said his parents' political records were in-,
vestigated and his friends questioned.
Concern over the situation
was also voiced by the Canadian
Association of University Teachers and the National Federation
of Canadian University Students.
Local RCMP have refused to
comment.
Councillors swing weight
behind bid for spring break
Student council is going after a mid-term break.
Councillors Monday appointed Science Undergrad Society
president Don Farish to approach the university senate for
the break next year.
The idea was suggested last week in a Ubyssey editorial.
The break would be held about half way through the
second term if the senate approves. Page 2

Scope for thinking men
We need thinking men and women
at IBM. Thinkers who can sit back
and look at a problem from every
angle and develop a working solution . . . then see that it is carried
out. There is plenty of scope for
their imagination; plenty of room
for professional growth. And the
rewards are substantial.
These men and women receive extensive training in advanced data
processing methods. They enjoy
freedom of expression and have
freedom to carry out their own
ideas with minimum interference.
They can be engineers, mathematicians, scientists or have majored
in liberal arts or business studies.
We have customers in all industries, in commerce and finance, and
in scientific fields. Graduates are
thus able to work in their chosen
profession solving the complex
data processing problems peculiar
to that particular industry.

Japanese
marching
to right'
• Japan, one-time world menace, is again marching to the
right, warns a Japanese political philosopher at UBC.
Milita.ry ultra-nationalists, industrialists and a strong bureaucracy control Japan's powerful
-Conservative Party.
Their aims are the remilitarization of Japan, ultimately with
nuclear weapons.
They are working to attain
sweeping social changes, to
weaken trade unions and mass
movements and to deliberalize
Japanese social institutions.
These are the views of Dr.
Shuichi Kato, political analysist,
cancer researcher and outspoken essayist.
Dr. Kato, now teaching at
UBC, is considered the Brock
Chisholm or Bertrand Russell
of his country.
His te!k to students this
week was part of the campus-
wide Japan Week activities.
The Japanese man-in-the-
street, said Kato, is oposed to the
government's aims, especially
rearmament.
"But the people are supporting the government because of
boom-time prosperity,"  he said.
He prophesized national riots
on the scale of the 1960 anti-
Eisenhower riots would take
place if the government accelerates its deliberalization program.
Future teachers
here for meeting
More than 160 B.C. high school
students invade UBC Friday and
Saturday for a future teachers
conference.
An address by Dean Neville
Scarfe, of the faculty of education, and a tour of the campus
will highlight their visit.
Theme  of   the   conference   is
Darlene Lowes, 18, of 905
East Forty-First and Werner
Kieselowsky, 18, of 745 East
Forty-fifth were in the car 45
minutes before an ambulance
and two wreckers arrived from
outside the University gates.
Three other students freed
themselves after the car went
out of control on Southwest
Marine Drive, flipped over and
struck a  tree.
Kieselowsky suffered concussion and injuries to the right
leg. He is in fair condition in
Vancouver General Hospital.
Miss Lowes is in satisfactory
condition with neck injuries.
OTHERS  ESCAPE
Driver of the car, Richard
Mosher, 18, of 6312 Cambie,
was treated for  a  thigh  injury.
Two other passengers, Anthony Allan, 18, of 1320 Dogwood, and James King, 18, of
650 West Fiftieth, suffered only
bruises.
Mosher said the girl and
Kieselowsky could have left the
car but stayed because of Kiese-
lowsky's undetermined  injuries.
He said Miss Lowes, although
badly injured, remained in the
car to look after Kieselowsky
and to try and stop his bleeding.
The   five   students   were   returning home from studying on
the    campus    about    9:30    p.m.
when the accident occurred.
45-MINUTE  DELAY
The single University RCMP
constable on duty was attending another accident and arrived 25 minutes after the
Marine   Drive   crash   occurred.
Then the two injured students had to wait another
twenty minutes before an ambulance and two wreckers, arrived  from   Vancouver.
Passersby stopping to look at
the accident jammed the road,
and the RCMP oficer was forced
to leave the injured to get traffic moving.
Police said they are investigating the cause of the accident.
They said the road was free of
ice. No charges have been laid.
The car was totally demolished.

Mind matters,
says lecturer
Man's mind and his brain are
two totally different things, a
Christian Science lecturer told
a student audience Wednesday.
"The once common belief that
he material brain is the source
of thought is today being questioned," said Paul Stark Seeley,
of Portland, Ore., a member of
the Christian Science board of
lectureship.
• "Some neurologists now declare that brain is brain, and
mind is mind, and they do not
know how they meet," he said.
He said God is the origin of
good ideas. He defined God as
"the universal Mind, Principle,
the intelligent source and governor of all real thinking."
Seeley said there is nothing in
the nature of matter (the human
brain)' to indicate it can produce
character, a concept such as justice, or even one intelligent
thought.
"Something greater than the
individual is involved."
executive   produced   a   split   in
Liberal   ranks.
President Ross Munro, who
voted 'no' in the 7-5 executive
condemnation of Pearson, denounced the anti-nuclear faction
Tuesday.
PACIFISTS
"They're like the World War
'1 pacifists—willing to go to the
front, willing to load the cannon
but not willing to pull the trigger,"   he  said.
First vice-president Cam
Avery defended the anti-nuclear
stand by the executive.
"This silly kind of pacifism
is perfectly sensible," he said.
"Canada is working for disarmament in a sane non-nuclear
ole."
The nuclear plank, introduced by club defense expert
David Wilder stated:
That the UBC Liberal club
urge a future Liberal government to acquire nuclear weapons
in relationship with the United
States similar to the working
agreement the U.S. has with
other  NATO  powers.
ARGUMENTS
Some arguments in favor
were:
m A collision between an attacking missile and intercepting Voodoo would release the
equivalent radiation fallout of
an X-ray machine left on for
an  hour.
• That Canada has already
sunk $400 million in acquiring
facilities for  nuclear  weapons.
• That Canadians are "boy
scouts" in a world of grown-ups
if they   ignore  power  politics.
• That Canada can't play an
effective role at disarmament
tables unless she has something
to disarm.

UBC needs an ambulance—get one
A car hit an icy patch and shot off Marine
Drive Tuesday night. It flipped as it crashed
into the brush and trees. Inside, a male student
—one of five students enroute home — lay
trapped between the steering wheel and the
front seat.
A girl passenger lay limply on the ground
outside the car.
Her face was bleeding and she was suffering from other injuries.
She died before an ambulance arrived.
Did it happen?
Partly. The accident occurred. The male
student was trapped in the wrecked car. The
girl student was badly cut up and bled profusely while  waiting for  an  ambulance.
. That she didn't die can hardly be credited
to emergency equipment that didn't arrive for
forty minutes.
A similar thing happened a couple of years
ago.
A student mixing chemicals in the back of
(his car in the area where the swimming pool is
now put two incompatible substances together.
The resulting explosion blew off the trunk lid
of his car. It also blasted the student's hand
off, just above the wrist. He suffered other
serious lacerations and burns.
The student grovelled in the parking lot
mud for more than 20 minutes before an ambulance arrived.
The ambulance that took him to hospital,
like the one that picked up the girl on Marine
Drive, had to come from Vancouver.
In either case, the time it took for the anv
bulance to get here could have been the difference between life and death.
Accidents have happened — serious accidents—and they will continue to happen as
the campus grows.
The Ubyssey has been pressing for two
year for an ambulance on campus. Prying
questions into administration waffling on
the matter has only brought brisk "no comments" and evasions of the issue.
There is need for an ambulance on thp
campus immediately. Or maybe people here
will be answering for the death of a student.
Take another look at The Ubyssey
A guest columnist today suggests that we
are just like tihe two editions of Pacific Press.
The writer, an orthodox Doukhobor, claims
that, like our daily sisters, The Ubyssey has
mounted a campaign of ridicule and degreda-
tion of the Sons of Freedom.
Not so, we must protest.
The fact is, The Ubyssey will do its best
to present articles supporting all sides and
aspects of the Doukhobor problem, because
we feel certain that at UBC, if anywhere,
there is a great need for information about the
aims and ideas of the sect.
For instance, are the Sons' persistent claims
meeting—know little about the group.
Many on the campus—witness Tuesday's
that they are being persecuted valid? Who is to
say they are not? The 72 elders charged with
conspiracy against the government were acquitted.
Is it an open and shut case that Doukhobors
are responsible for all the burnings and bombings in the Kootenays? How can it be? The
convictions have been few and far between.
Is it not reasonable to donate money to
perpetuate the religion in which you believe?
The Douuihobors send money to their spiritual
leader (Stefan Sorokin) but does this mean
they are demented? Members of the more com-
Joe E. Podovinikoff
mon religions donate money to their church
also.
Why do the Freedomites feel persecuted?
Why ao they maintain that they are second
class citizens? Should they be forced to conform in every way to Canadian laws, or should
there be special laws for them—such as there
are for other religions who operate their own
schools.
We suggest there are few students here
who can answer these questions with any conviction—or more likely few that have even
considered them.
The students should decide whether the
Freedomites are searching for freedom—freedom to do as they please without government
or interference—or freedom simply to degenerate.
And professors should do their part to sort
out this complicated mess.
The Freedomites might be simply a group
of troublemakers. They might be arsonists,
religious fanatics, bombers and lunatics.
But they might also be sane and may, in
fact, be persecuted.
The Ubyssey will do its best to print articles submited which shed light on the problem.
Our daily sisters, we are sorry to say, have
never done this.

Guest Columnist
Charges conspiracy against Sons
This article is taken from
a brief sent to Davie Fulton
written by Joe E. Podovinikoff,    unofficial    spokesman
for   the   Sons   of   Freedom.
Much   of   the   material   has
been   sacrificed   because   of
space.
In the majority,  the marchers themselves have no homes,
no    properties,    no    jobs,    no
security,    no   protection,    and
positively no future. They  are
marching  for  the   simple   reason    there     was    practically
nothing   left  for   them  to   do
under   the   circumstances, and
no   other   place   to   go.   Their
blood   and   spiritual   brethren
are   incarcerated   therein   and
furthermore,    the    Prison,    allegedly, was  specifically built
to house the Doukhobors.
. . . Since starting the March
Sept. 1st, they never relinquished the one aim of their objective: to reach Agassi?;—or
have the Attorney General's
Department look into their
problem creoted by circumstances that that department
alone can  rectify.
The statement can be, and
is, again repeated: that the
problem, so-called—is NOT incomprehensible or unsolvatole.
Tt only needs impartial handling by impjiiiai people and
the pieces will fit together
with little effort.
. . . The Canadian people,
of which we are an integral
part physically, but not spiritually, have failed miserably
to convince the so-called erring
Doukhobors that there is
truih and justice in the polities I handling; of our religious
problem. Therefore our people
feel thoroughly justified in
presently forming a concerted
protest where, despite its
many unfavorable  g,nd  embar-

rliniRxi^g ir:7) sn , ,i ,
lei'n to a posiuon whe
all the more easily
proached. And the people virtually had no choice but do
what  they  are  doing.
Canadians are much too
prone to condemn those who
are different. Hence, after 63
years of "being different" in
Canada, Doukhobors. inheriting a tradition that makes "being different" a must in -a
thoroughly subdued conformist world—realize it is a social
malady that cannot be adjusted
by simple means of wishful
thinking alone . . . especially
where and when responsible
officials in high places refuse
to acknowledge that human
problems can only be resolved
by human means, not by
machinery of Court, police repression, calumny, slander,
character assassination and
deprivation of livelihood (starvation). That is the mistake of
many despots, and we see the
modern ones have not improved—except it be in the
craft of their trade.
If the Bill of Rights is not a
farce in Canada, why then the
need of a march to demonstrate
an injustice or the circumstance
of near-destitution where protection, shelter and daily sustenance has to toe attained by
charity, by selling last remaining possessions, and after 63
years of unremitent toil in
Canadian rich environment,
sink to the level of paupers
and beggars.
Genocide is a recognized
international crime. By nailing Doukobors on the wall you
have mislaid your judgement
and nailed yourself on the
horns of a historical dilemma
echoed down the ages; to be
or not to be.
As a student of Doukhpbor
extraction, I wish to say that
I was sickened by the display
that was staged in the Armory
on Tuesday noon.
It is now clear to me that the
whole affair was arranged as
a "sick" joke. First, as a buildup, you ran a couple of articles
ridiculing Fanny Storgoff, following the trend of the two editions of the Pacific Press in
depicting her as a clown. Your
astuteness in locating Vera, obviously a well-known expert
on Doukhobor affairs, of Ph.D.
rank at least, at her downtown
cigar store, is to be commended.
The sign in front of the
Brock did not mention that
there would be a choir or a discussion of Doukhobor problems. It said only "Fanny Storgoff."
On Tuesday you ran an editorial suggesting that Fanny
Storgoff and Joe Podovinikoff
had had a disagreement and
that, consequently, he would
not be present. For your information, Joe was present. Could
it be that Joe's presence was
not desired, perhaps because
he had had experience in public speaking and could have
stated a fair case? Could it be
that Maria Shlakoff was chosen because she has not had
much experience in speaking
and because she has a quiet
voice?
•    •    •
I do not know what answers
Mrs. Shlakoff gave, because I
couldn't hear most of them. I
did, however, hear most of the
questions. Some of them were
so clever that large sections of
the audience broke into applause and catcalls, drowning
out any answer that she might
have   given
Even you must admit that
the questions were slanted,
sometimes viciously. I would
like to see the panel of questioners try to answer similar
questions, without having prepared answers beforehand. I
have no doubt that Mrs. Shlakoff came prepared to explain
the situation to interested people, not to defend the *Sons of
Freedom position against the
attacks of a panel of self-appointed experts whose only
knowledge of the sect comes
from reading a few "eye-witness" accounts by Simma Holt,
star reporter of our esteemed
and objective Vancouver Sun.
There are men at  this Uni
versity who have done a comprehensive study of the Douk-
ho,bor problem, who have written these and books about it.
Why couldn't these men have
been used in a panel? It seemed
to me that only the presence
of Dr. MacGregor prevented
the meeting from turning into
a full-scale brawl. Or was this
the  desired objective?
Strange that the questioners
should have omitted to mention certain important aspects
of the Doukhobor problem.
• •    *
I guess, though, that it is too
much to expect of a sophisticated university audience, that
it should take any interest in
the fact that the Doukhobors
were deprived of their considerable land in Saskatchewan
and British Columbia; that the
burnings and bombings were
done by a tiny minority, most
of whom are still at large in
the Kootenays; that most Sons
of Freedom prisoners signed
statements blaming John Lebe-
deff for the terrorism and that
he has never been brought to
trial; that all of the council
members were released last
summer for lack of evidence
and that prisoners are slowly
being released from Mountain
Prison for the same reason;
that some of the prisoners were
held 41//2 months before being
brought to trial; that Stefan
Sorokin, for no apparent reason, was blocked from returning to Canada by the Canadian
government; that while he'was
here there was no terrorism;
that New Denver school, while
perhaps no "Buchenwald',, was
a place where children were
held for years, allowed to see
their parents only once every
two weeks, through a wire
fence; that they were removed
forcibly from their parents by
the RCMP, often assisted by
dogs.
• •    •
But no, it is much easier to
sit back on our rosy buttocks
and make catcalls at people
who dress and think a little
differently than we do. The
other side of the question is
often difficult to discover and
it is not fitting for a university
student to exert his mental
powers.
It seems a pity that the special events committee couldn't
have thought of a fitting finale
for their "publicity stunt," like
dumping the choir in the library pond. Thursday, January  24,   1963

Letters: Discussion of Douks
Think and do
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Look at the funny people.
They are Christians. They are
called Doukhobors. They are
guests of some people called
students. Listen. The Doukhobors are singing a funny song
in a funny language. The funny
song is called the Lord's Prayer. We know the song is funny
because we hear laughter.
Look at all the other people.
There are many, many other
people. They are called University Students. They are Christians too. Someday they will be
the leaders of our country. They
are not listening to the Doukhobors sing. They are talking.
They are laughing. They are
eating their lunches. This is
called courtesy.
See the man. He is hissing-
He is wearing a funny pin. It
is called a fraternity pin.
Now the singing has stopped.
See the funny women. They are
wearing shawls. They are Doukhobor women. See the four students. They are called student
councillors. They are asking
the funny women questions.
When they ask a question
everybody claps. When the
funny women answer everybody boos. This is called freedom of speech. The students do
not like the Doukhobors because their customs are different.
This is called freedom of worship and religious tolerance.
See the funny man. He is
called a professor. His name is
Malcolm McGregor. He thinks
the students came to hear the
Doukhobors. He is wrong. The
students came to hear the student councillors.
The students know all about
the Doukhobors. They read
about them in the newspapers.
This is easier than listening to
the Doukhobors. This is easier
than reading books about the
Doukhobors. The newspapers
say the Doukhobors are not
nice. The students think the
Doukhobors are not nice. This
is called rational reasoning.
Now the professor is telling
the students to clap. They clap.
Now the meeting is over. The
students have seen and heard
the Doukhobors. They are happy. They are laughing. They
are talking. They are not thinking. They are saying how funny
the Doukhobors are.
They are hypocrites.
Yours truly,
GARTH BROWN,
Arts 2.
P.S. Anyone interested in
forming the UBC Fascist Party
with the platform of exterminating the Doukhobors please do
so at once. You should have no
trouble signing people up.
It's a problem
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I object to your treatment of
the Doukhobors. I object to
the Vancouver Sun's treatment
of the Doukhobors. I object to
the B.C. government's treatment of the  Doukhobors.
We, the people, through our
representatives have allowed
the Doukhobors (Sons of Freedom) certain rights (we were
probably wrong in doing so but
British Columbia needed the
manpower and agricultural
know-how of the Doukhobors
when they came from Saskat-
c h e w a n).   Nevertheless    the
agreement was made. Now,
what are we going to do about
it?
I think that they should be
taken care of by a three-man
system: a religious leader, an
administrative head able to
deal with the legal problems
and not afraid to say anything
constructive because it may be
controversial (re: royal commission 1950), and an in-
between man from the sect
working with the administrative head.
The Doukhobors have rights
as Canadians, and it is up to us
to make sure that they take
advantage of those rights. At
the same time we must ensure
that the Doukhobors respect
those rights.
We cannot use drastic force
such as taking their children
away as was done in the 30's.
We cannot continue to persecute them for their faith.
But we must do something.
Or must we wait until public
property goes up in smoke?
Why haven't the INDIVIDUALS been caught by the
RCMP? Why must the sect be
persecuted? Why must persecution be carried on by The
Sun and The Ubyssey without
the benefit of doubt or responsible curiosity?
The B.C. government has accepted the products of the
Doukhobors but not the responsibility .The time has come
to do both.
Yours truly,
MIKE KVENICH,
Arts I.
Duped?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The panel that questioned
the Sons of Freedom deserves
a sneer from everyone who is
familiar with the Doukhobor
problem.
The individuals on the panel,
with the exception of one, in
my opinion had no previous
knowledge of the existence of
the sect. Their questions proved this lack of awareness.
Moreover, the three less-informed panelists dealt in such
generalities, that the inquiry
became a farce and a side-show
—a big joke which, on the
whole, the Doukhobor situation is developing into.
Because of this indifference
of the people (e.g., UBC panelists) and the government of
British Columbia, the sect's unfounded claims of persecution
go on with mild repudiation
and, in many instances, sympathy.
I hope the student body was
not taken in by the two "sweet
old ladies" whose respect for
the country that feeds them is
nonexistent.
Yours truly,
WALTER T.
Corrections
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I am, writing to you with
reference to your head-line
story of January 17—"Liberals oppose Pearson."
Firstly the executive never
did "slam" or "condemn" Mr.
Pearson's nuclear stand, but
only regretted his stand.
Secondly, there are no "factions" within the club (differences of opinion don't necessarily "split . . . ranks."). (An
executive   vote   of  6-5   against
arms seams like a split to me,
Ed.).
Thirdly, Bob Peyton is not,
nor ever has been, "leader of
the anti-nuclear camp (sic)."
(Why, then, did he tell our reporter  he   was?  Ed.).
Fourthly, the "anti-nuclear
camp" (sic) was not out-voted
in last year's Model Parliament
caucus, but a compromise was
democratically arrived at. (In
other words, nuclear supporters overwhelmed anti-nuclear
supporters, and they then had
to be quiet for sake of party
solidarity.   Ed.).
Fifthly,- I never told your
reporter that the decision of
a general meeting would mean
nothing to the senior party.
In fact, I said the opposite: a
sn!it decision on nuclear arms
among my twelve-man executive would have little effect,
compared to any decision
democratically arrived at by a
general meeting of over 100
club members.
Thank you for the space to
set the record straight. (You're
welcome.  Ed.).
Yours  truly,
ROSS H. MUNRO,
PRESIDENT,
UBC LIBERALS.
Suggestion
Editor,
The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We have a suggestion. Why
don't you put some comic
strips in your paper so it will
be worth  reading?
Disillusioned readers,
JACK  O'CONNOR,
ROBERT   MACAULAY.
(We  run  letters  from  half-wit
leaders instead. Ed.).
Great, sir
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Letter to the Honourable
L. B. Pearson:
Your recent policy statement
with regard to nuclear weapons is encouraging. Finally
Canada is to have power. Now,
we will rise. The knowledge
that Canada may soon contribute in some small way to
world stability fills one's chest
with pride, Sir.
The fact that western nuclear bombs must proliferate
to meet the communist offensive has been too long neglected: Thank heaven, Sir, intelligence has revealed this fact to
you.
Now we must press for the
further spread of nuclear
bombs. Nuclear bombs will
soon be circling the earth in
orbit, capable of hitting any
target. If Canada gets nuclear
weapons, however, why not
arm all the countries in the
Americas: Brazil, Costa Rica,
Rhodesia, Viet Nam, etc.
With your forenearance, Sir,
1 would like to make some suggestions along the lines of
your new policy. Let us cease
the excessive squandering of
Canadian monies on foreign
aid and the communistic
United Nations. Let us rather,
Sir, channel these monies into
bomb  purchases.
There must be more, more,
more—
Hold your Nobel Peace
Prize high,  Sir.
Yours  truly,
JAMES  F.  ADAMS.

THE      UBYSSEY
Thursday,  January  24,   1963
KINEO
• La Notte, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, is one of
Jew films which is entitled to
the various awards it has-been-
'. given. (The highest award that
La Notte received was the
Grand Prize at the Berlin
Film Festival,   1962).
The reason for the film's
success is not the story or
the actiiig. it is the director,
Antonioni, who gives La Notte
its cinematic character. This
"cinematic character" is the
substance of Antonioni's film
which places him in s, different
genre of film-making than his
Italian contemporaries, Fel-
lini, .-Rossellini, De Sica and
others. Cinematic character in
Antonioni's films can best be
described as "craftsmanship of
pictorial  composition."
•    •    •
Michelangelo Antonioni has
almost achieved perfection in
the technique of pictorial composition. In most of Antonioni's
films (especially L' Avventura
and La Nolle) the mood of the
film is exprfessed and even
created by the photography
itself. A general example
of this is the predominance
of interior shots of unusually
cold photography. The photography softens at the end by
the first use of natural surroundings in the film.
If you  go  to  see  La  Noite
No, this is not a before and after advertisement for a reduc
Michelangelo Antonioni's film La Notte. And you can bet th
swapping calorie   info  with   that  burger-munching morsel.
ng   salon   but a   scene   from
at  Marcello Mastroianni   isn't
watch for the pan from estate
grounds to golf course. The
resulting picture is composed
with the eye of an artist. It resembles a painting more than
it resembles a series of frames.
As a manner of contrast, try
comparing the "picture composition" of "Mutiny on the
Bounty with the picture
composition of La Notte.
Coupled with the technique
of composition, Antonioni uses
"cinematic symbolism" to a
large   extent   in   La   Noite   al
though it is now more subtle
than it was in L' Avventura.
This symbolism is cinematic
because it depends on motion
and sometimes montage for its
examples of this are in the
final effect. The most obvious
street scene just after Jeanne
Moreau, who plays Lidia
Pontano, tries to comfort the
crying child. A broken clock
is shown at the foot of Lidia
and then a cut to her left
hand (with wedding ring)
tearing  away   a   piece  of   rust
from the wall of the old building. This street scene ■ is full
of "cinematic symbolism" although the symbols are all
more subtle than the example
I have just given. There are
even a couple of phallic symbols thrown in. They, too, are
much more subtly presented in
La Notte than in L' Avventura.
'What is La Notte about, anyway?" you may ask.
La Notte is a depiction of
the decaying of personal relations   between   Giovanni   Pon-
'LA HfiT
tano, played by Marcello
Mastroianni, and his wife;
Lidia. It takes a sensitive and
aware member of the corrupt
society which Lidia pnd Giovanni Pontano are immersed
in to hiring the couple to their
final compromise. This character (Valentina Gherardini,
played by M'onica Vitti) is a
new character in Antonioni's
films. Usually all members of
the corrupt society are depicted as completely shallow and
completely unaware of life
around them. The intellectual
maturity of Valentina is
brought out in the scene between her and Lidia Pontano:
Lidia: How old are you?
Valentina: Eighteen.
Lidia:  .  .  .  and many, many
months.
•    *    •
I would just like to close
this discussion of La Notte
with a quotation by Antonioni,
himself,  on  the film.
The final compromise is "the
compromise which is found today in morality and even in
politics. The characters this
time find themselves, but they
have trouble in communicating because they have discovered that the truth is difficult, that it demands much
courage and determination
which is .unattainable in their
social  environment."

visions in the basement
by george
smile, you're watchi
After having refrained for 10 years, I have
finally capitulated to my weakest impulses, and
bought a television set. I got a 21 inch set for
S25, a bargain no matter how you measure
it. Already I've saved about $25 in typing
paper and notebooks. In a year I figure I'll be
$275 ahead, a kind of balm for my feelings of
rejection in the UIC line.
Anyway, I've managed to look around at the
TV programs all my enemies have been talking
about for years. I mean, I used to feel left out
when one of my favorite women told me she
was hung up on Doctor Zorba. Who the hell is
Doctor Zorba,. I thought, I'm sure I've visited
every headshrinker in the city. Turned out Doctor Zorba was Harpo Marx lost in a TV studio
for brain cleaving.
*
*    Flick of the fingers, and there is Route GG, an
American highway that runs through every city
in the country. When Nat Cole and I were boys
it ran from Chicago to Los Angeles, and while
I was on the road I never ran into those two
kooks with the rejection complexes, driving
around looking for profitable trouble, seeking
to take from the rich to give to the poor. The
poor being Freckles and his friend. Lately I've
taken to turning the set upside down and watching the more familiar Route 99.
A long time ago I used to listen to a radio program (see Robert Zorpf, A  Cultural History  of
bowering
ing candid camera
the United States) called "Father Knows Best,"
a kind of science fiction family story, in which
the robots had gone Hollywood. Now I tune in
on a Sunday night, and there's FKB, only Father's knowing best on horseback, and this time
he's got THREE sado-masochistic sons. Bone
Anza is a white-haired Canadian Shakesperian
who owns one of the American w.estern states,
and proves that right will win in any moral question. And he owns all the rights in the country:
the mineral rights, the water rights, the railroad
rights, etc.
•
A   lot of  illusions  shattered before  the  first
week was out, then. But I was told to keep my
eye open for a thing called "Bare Naked City,"
a cops and/or robbers program that is apparently
scheduled for eight million stories. Imagine my
dismay when my expectations of a nudist extravaganza were destroyed in one flick of an important message from next week's alternate
sponsor.
But Saturday comes around, and I sit down
to watch hockey night in Canada, Foster Hewitt's answer to the shelling of Quemoy and Matsu.
When the three stars had skated off the ice amid
tel.eprompter applause, I was asked who won.

bye bye bi
"Bye Bye Birdie," the sparkling new musical ribbing rock
'n roll, plays at the University
of B.C. Auditorium February
21-23. It is being presented
by the University of British Columbia Musical Society who
last year produced the highly
successful musical, "Once Upon
A Mattress."
The University production
6tars Betty Irwin, a second year
Arts student from Vancouver.
Miss Irwin last appeared in the
musical society's production of
"Once Upon A Mattress." Co-
starring in the production of
"Bye Bye Birdie" is John
Sparks who has appeared in the
university productions of "Romanoff and Juliet" and recently, "Five Finger Exercise." Pat
Rose plays the part of the Elvis
Presley-like songbird, Conrad
Birdie, the "Birdie" of the title.
Once again the team of director, James Johnston, musical
director, Bev Fyfe, and choreographer Grace Macdonald
have been engaged to direct the
student cast of 50.
"Bye Bye Birdie" presented
here will be the Western Canadian Premiere of the production. It will have evening performances at 8:30 p.m. February 21-23. Previews for students will be held February
18, 19 and 20. Tickets are
available at Famous Artists'
Box Office, Hudson Bay Co.,
main floor, or Alma Mater Society, Brock Hall on the University campus. Tickets $2.50,
$2.00 and $1.50.
Only two more days remain
to see one of the roost intriguing exhibitions, surely, ever to
visit campus. The architects
represented in this display of
Visionary Architecture circulated by the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, have bypassed the supposed need for
concrete expression of their
ideas, with designs for a world
"as they know it ought to be,"
or' might be in the future.
"Futuristic" conceptions include the 15th century plans of
Filareto and Leonardo da Vin-.
ci, which up to now have only
been partially realized, and
more recent projections, such
as Kikutake's Marine City
complex.
■fr & -ft
In the realm of pure, delightful fantasy we have Bruno
Taut's plans for renovating the
Alps, with all their grand, mystic impractibilities in the fore.
Such enormous scale in conception is almost equalled in
Paolo Soleri's Biotech-iic City
(1957-60), to he constructed
entirely within a mesa. The
striking fluid lines of Soleri's
Long-Span Concrete Bridge
seem capable of more immediate realization, with more general appeal. The lyric Rococco
splendor of Poelzig's Salzburg
Festival Theatre embodies an
u 11 r a-musical conception of
architecture. Katavolos predicts controlled chemical "happenings" in the future, to produce unending variety in floating Chemical Architecture.
* * ik
Several designs could prob?
ably be executed in the near
future, if their aesthetic and
sociological reforms were not
so extreme. Louis Kahn's City
Tower has laterally braced concrete pillars which give it a
remarkably unstable-look ing
silhouette.     Fitzgibbon     and
Sides' Bridge City is an enormous doughnut-shaped cage
enclosing 20-storey apartment
blocks. Nelson's Suspended
House and Kiesler's Endless
House amalgamate sculpture
and residential design. Frank
Lloyd Wright's Mile High Skyscraper proposes the literal
summit of his distinguished
career.
Today at noon, Mr. Ober-
lander of Planning Department
will give his views on Visionary Architecture.

morgan's high key
in five flats
exhibition   by  p.  r.   morgan
Ten widely assorted panels
by new light Philip R. Morgan
suffer from the darkness of
their location on West Broadway, especially the wood construction Mill Town. At least
one or two of these works are
worth risking eye-strain to see,
namely Fallen Colosseum and
Three Lights. The latter abstract is notable for what it
leaves out; quiet composition
and clean tones avoid the undirected fussiness evident in
the High Key series.
High Key No. 10 shows some
subtlety of color handling,
and decidedly more convincing organization than its sister
panels. In their present
medium—casein—these expressions seem too muddily subjective to really come across;
a more dimensional medium
might give them life.
The artist could hardly
have conceived his pictures in
their present surroundings.
Given half a chance in proper
light, they could rival the jazz
behind.

Bed-side manners developed
while med students downtown
Page 7
By MIKE GRENBY
After Christmas in the medical student's second year, he
migrates   downtown.
A four-storey building, opened in 1957, next to the 1,800-
bed Vancouver General Hospital constitutes the university's
off-campus claim to medicine.
Said Dean J. F. McCreary:
"The hospital kindly took the
responsibility of accepting
teaching in its wards when the
faculty began in 1950.
"We have since expanded but
have always had the co-operation of the hospital in our attempts to graft teaching and research onto a service institution."
The hospital wing contains
department of medicine, surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and
gynaecology, and psychiatry.
It also contains offices, amphitheatre lecture halls, research labs, conference rooms
and a 50-seat branch of the university library.
Four museums
As an aid to teaching, the
department of medical illustration plays a vital role.
Drawings, cartoons and photographs are used in lectures
arid also to illustrate numerous
medical journals.
"It is important to use all
weapons of teaching to help
spread medical knowledge and
training," said Dean McCreary.
Four pathology museums feature displays which run the
gamut of abnormal conditions.
Diseased parts of the body, taken from surgery and autopsy,
are shown with their histories
and other pertinent details.
In paediatrics one of the
main jobs is research on the
general defects in infants with
the basic goal of keeping the
"newborns alive.
25,000 patients
"We try to detect, for example, the crippling respiratory
diseases of asthma and bronchitis in the newborns and then
do everything possible to prevent the diseases developing to
the acute stage," explained Dr.
Sydney Segal, assistant professor and research co-ordinator.
Experiments are conducted
on pigs, guinea pigs and puppies to help with the study of
humans.

being so close for study purposes," said Dr. Segal.
The department of medicine
deals with clinical and internal
medicine. It studies the clinical
aspects of diseases and diagnoses treatment.
Teaching, research and patient care are all ii terwoven,
the presence of patients being
necessary to make possible the
employment of clinical techniques and medicine.
Most of the staff of 65 have
outside practices as well to help
keep them in touch with current
developments  and changes.
Much individual teaching is
done here, with clinics of two
and three students and studies
of individual patients in lecture-
theatre clinics.
Patients in the in-patient centres are handled by third year
students with the fourth year
students looking after the outpatient clinics.

• To prepare doctors for advanced degrees and specialty
