Bookstore  Prices  Go  D 


Discounts  To  Students 
On  All  But  Textbooks 

The  University  Bookstore  began  a  dividend  pian  on  all 
student  purchases  except  textbooks  Monday. 

Originating  with  Marsh  Jeannei'et,  director  of  the  Uni- 
versity Press,  the  Student  Purchase  Dividend  plan  will  save 
students  seven  to  eight  per  cent. 

Under  the  SPD  plan,  a  student 
receives  a  yellow  coupon  for  every 
fifty  cents  worth  of  books  he  buys. 
For  every  dollar's  worth  of  any- 
thing other  than  textbooks,  he  re- 
ceives a  pink  stamp  worth  ten 
cents.  Five  stamps  are  pasted  on 
each  coupon.  The  filled  coupon  can 
be  exchanged  for  50  cents  cash  or 
discount  on  another  purchase. 

"The  scheme  is  purely  experi- 
mental," Mr.  R,  E.  Saul,  manager 
of  the  bookstore,  said.  "If  we  gave 
students  a  straight  discount,  we'd 
lose  money.  We  still  don't  know 
what  we're  up  against  with  this 

A  student  can  save  his  cash  reg- 
ister slips  and  exchange  them  for 
coupons  and  stamps  in  December. 
Everything  other  than  textbooks 
counts  as  stationery  except  micro- 
scopes, which  are  already  sold  at 
a  discount  to  students,  and  wood- 
en plaques  with  university  crests, 
which  are  sold  for  the  benefit  of 
the  University  Settlement. 

"This  is  a  start,"  Mr.  Saul  paid 
"It  shows  that  the  Board  of  Gov- 
ernors is  sympathetic  to  the  stu- 
dent's problem.  We  hope  to  find 
a  better  and  more  profitable  dis- 
count scheme  for  the  students  later 
on  after  we  see  how  this  arrange- 
ment works  out.  Although  the  dis- 
count looks  like  10%,  it  amounts 
to  seven  or  eight  per  cent,"  he  said. 

Students  may  interchange  stamps 
and  coupons  between  themselves 
and  so  increase  their  chances  of 
more  profitable  discounts.

Varsity  Cartoon  By  Hugh  Niblock 



All  classes  will  -be  dismissed  at 
3  tomorrow  afternoon  so  students 
may  attend  the  opening  address 
of  President  Sidney  Smith  at  3:- 
45  in  Convocation  Hall. 

As  in'  previous  years  the  speech 
is  intended  to  welcome  the  fresh- 
man year,  but  will  also  contain 
some  sound  advice  for  all  mem- 
bers of  the  student  body. 

Students'  Administrative  Coun- 
cil President  Gord  Forstner  along 
with  other  members  of  the  SAC 
will  be  on  hand  to  meet  the 
freshmen  and  to  see  they  are 
properly  seated. 

In  his  speech  last  year  the  Pre- 
sident asked  student  to  consider 
seriously  the  problems  of  demo- 
cracy, saying  that  "the  problem 
oi  liberty  is  very  much  alive  in 
the  country  today." 

The  engineering  f  acu  1 1  y  is 
fighting  for  space  and  s'.aff  to 
accomodate  a  16  per  cent  in- 
crease in  freshman  enrolment 
this  fall. 

This  year's  freshman  class  has 
risen  to  750  students,  aim  jsi  100 
more  than  last  year's  fii  it-year 
enrolment.  SPS  officials  had  ex- 
pected an  increase  of  perhaps  25 
in  the  class. 

More  room  is  planned  fur  en- 
gineers but  enrolment  may  have 
to  be  limited  before  new  facilities 
are  built.  New  space  should  be 
ready  in  three  years.  Dean  R. 
R.  McLaughlin  said. 

Tight    scheduling    of    di  ting 
rooms     and     laboratory  •••pace 
should  just  make  enough   room  ' 
for  first-year  engineers. 

This  year  the  faculty  decreas- 
ed the  number  of  student-  per 
class  from  140  to  70.  Increase.!  en- 
rolment means  even  more  work 
for  the  staff. 

SPS  lacks  '  enough  money  to 
hire  more  staff.  Dean  McLaughlin 

ADD  1  to  skule  problems 

In  the  last  two  years  enrolment 
in  the  engineering  faculty  his 
eased  up  to  1.936  from  1.630.  This 
year,  more  than  2.000  arc  expected 
la  enrol. 

"How  many  can  we  take?"  Dean 
McLaughlin  said.  "How  many  can 
you  cram  into  a  street  car?"

Tasty  Tossed  Salad 

Tuesday,  Sept.  25,  1956,  THE  VARSITY 

Palates  accustomed  to  the 
brassily  involved  flavor  of 
Broadway  .musical  comedy  are  in 
for  a  refreshing  surprise  with 
Salad  Days,  at  Hart  House 
theatre  last  week,  this  week 
and— it  is  to  be  hoped — for  three 
weeks  thereafter. 

Toby  Robins,  listed  as  pro- 
ducer "in  association  with  Bill 
Freeman  (her  husband  and  Bruce 
Snell,"  has  tossed  her  import- 
ed salada  with  just  the  right 
dressing  to  .make  the  ideal  first 
course  for  Toronto's  promising 
1956-57  season. 

The  ingredients— in  the  British 
style  that  made  The  Boy  Friend 
a  hit  in  North  America — are 
'spectacularly  simple. 
..  .Salad  Days  is  mixed  along  a 
simple  and  unpretentious  story- 
line. A  twinkle-eyed  tramp  en- 
trusts his  magic  piano  to  a 
penniless  newlywed  couple. 
When  played  by  the  young  hus- 
*band,  the  piano  makes  everyone 
—almost  including  the  audience 
■ — dance. 

The  body  of  the  salad  is  pro- 
vided by  an  all-talent  cast  of 
12 — each  in  his  time  playing 
many  parts,  and  singing  and 
dancing  in  between  costume 

Possibly  the  most  successful 
tang  added  to  the  show  is  in  the 
choreography  of  Alan  and 
Blanche  Lund,  who  have  evolved 
a  number  of  pleasantly  informal 
dance  routines  and  several  indi- 

vidual comic  single  turns. 

If  a  single  star  has  to  be 
chosen  from  the  remarkably 
well-balanced  cast,  it  must  be 
Jack  Creley,  who  plays  seven 
parts  ranging  from  a  staid  but 
dancing  bishop  to  a  singing 
night-club  manager. 

Barbara  Franklin  and  Roland 
Bull,  as  the  young  married 
couple,  are  more  than  adequate 
if  not  overly  exciting.  Miss 
Franklin  is  a  pleasant  singer 
whose  acting  and  dancing 
charms  are  still. developing.  Mr. 
Bull  looks  ideal,  is  a  skilled 
actor  and  his  lack  of  singing 
experience  doesn't  matter. 

A  33-per-eent  discount 
will  be  available  lo  stu- 
dents for  the  5.30  Saturday 
show  of  Salad  Days.

Cast  readings  will  be  held  tomorrow  evening  for  Dark  of  the

in  the  Rehearsal  Room  at  7:30.  This  is  the  first  time  in 
several  years  that  freshmen  will  have  the  opportunity  of 
reading  for  the  opening  play  of  the  season,  and  Director 
Robert  Gill  is  anxious  to  see  as  many  new  faces  as  pos-

"Suffer  yourselves  to  be  blamed,  imprisoned,  condemned; 
suffer  yourselves  to  be  hanged:  but  publish  your  opinions; 
it  is  not  a  right,  it  is  a  duty." 

a  clean  sheet 

Like  the  sheet  of  paper  that  was  inserted  into 
this  typewriter  a  few  thought-wracked  minutes  ago, 
the  school  year  which  begins  this  week  is  blank. 

In  just  a  few  minutes  —  we  hope  —  the  paper 
will  be  pulled  from  the  roller,  curled  a  little  and  stain- 
ed by  the  first  few  drops  from  our  flow  of  editorial 
wisdom.  It  will  be  dropped  into  an  envelope,  whisked 
to  the  printers,  cast  in  type,  fitted  into  a  page  form, 
printed,  distributed,  read  by  a  few  intrepid  students, 
used  to  wrap  sandwiches  by  others,  filed  in  our 
office,  and  finally  bound  in  hard  covers  —  the  first 
bit  of  evidence  on  the  success  or  failure  of  the  76th 
Varsity  year. 

Similarly,  your  year  will  fly  by,  a  whirl  of  foot- 
ball week-ends,  parties,  new  teachers,  new  friends, 
and  possibly  lectures,  notes,  books,  essays,  labs  and 
the  myriad  of  other  things  that  make  a  university 
career.  In  a  few  months  it  will  turn  into  that  final 
sprint  for  examination  success. 

Just  as  this  editorial  will  remain  as  a  small,  but 
permanent  indication  of  our  ability  to  meet  a  news- 
paper's responsibility  to  its  readers,  so  will  your 
year's  results  —  not  only  those  obtained  in  examina- 
tions —  stand  as  permanent  marks  in  the  story  of  your 

It  is  an  awesome  thought. 

and  some  dirty  laundry 

This  year  there  will  be  a  number  of  issues  raised 
that  have  been  raised  over  and  over  again  in  the  past. 
And  —  as  always  —  nothing  will  be  done  about  them. 

There  will  be  desire  for  and  talk  of  a  student 
union:  but  we  won't  get  one. 

Complaints  will  fly  about  the  raise  in  under- 
graduate fees:  but  they  won't  be  reduced. 

Rabid  organizers  will  try  to  get  us  back  into 
NFCUS,  and  cynical  individualists  will  suggest  we  let 
sleeping  dogs  lie:  but  at  the  end  of  the  year  we  still 
won't  know  where  we  are. 

Common  sense  will  tell  us  that  S.A.C.  student 
levy  must  be  raised:  but  it  will  not,  and  our  under- 
graduate government  will  continue  to  be  hamstrung 
by  its  lack  of  funds. 

Persons  who  are  old  enough  to  die  for  their 
country  in  wartime  will  not  be  able  to  buy  a  glass  of 
beer,  and  it  will  still  cost  the  provincial  government 
more  to  administer  those  cute  little  green  books  than 
they  receive  from  their  sale. 

University  College  will  continue  to  channel  what 
spirit  it  has  into  lines  too  mature  for  Joe  College  to 

The  law  society  will  be  unjust  to  the  University 
Law  School. 

The  Hart  House  Orchestra  Associates  will  not 
be  allowed  to  sell  tickets  for  its  Sunday  afternoon 
concerts  but  Sunday  baseball  games  will  be  played  at 
Maple  Leaf  Stadium. 

And  we.  still  haven't  got  a  bulletin  board

SAC  President  Advises: 

Denial  Determination  Meed* 

On  behalf  of  your  student  govern- 
ment, I'd  like  to  welcome  all  under- 
graduates to  another  year.  It  has 
become  'the  custom  for  each  new 
SAC  President  to  issue  a  plea  for 
greater  participation  in  student  acti- 
vities, This  year  will  be  no  exception. 

Out  With  Old, 
In  With  New 

Last  night  looked  like  old  boys  night 
at  the  Varsity. 

Represented  around  the  horseshoe 
desk  just  before  the  first  paper  went 
to  press,  was  practically  every  year 
since  1951. 

Last  year's  co-editor  Bob  Brown  and 
CUP  editor  Carol  Hoffman  stepped  in 
to  make-up  and  advisory  jobs. 

Managing  editor  Mike  Pengelly  re- 
turned to  the  smaller  paper  from  his 
police  beat  at  The  Telegram  and  gave 
fatherly  advice. 

Clyde  Batten,  editor-in-chief  in  1954- 
55,  wandered  in  after  putting  his  own 
South  Shore  Times  to  press. 

Tom  Virany,  managing  editor  the 
year  before  that,  came  in  with  a  story 
from  the  new  law  school. 

Perennial  staffer  Cathie  Breslin 
signed  up  for  a  twice-weekly  feature. 

And  what  seemed  like  dozens  of 
other  ex-staffers  hovered  over  the  desk 
making  things  difficult.  But  new  fbldod 
is  needed. 

Incumbent  editor  Pete  Gzowski  was 
heard  to  scream  at  his  right  hand  Mike 
Cassidy:  "I  wish  some  of  these  people 
would  start  school  all  over  again :  — 
tomorrow  morning." 

But  grateful  as  this  year's  masthead 
is.  new  blood  is  needed.  Freshmen  and 
other  ranks  interested  in  working  for 
The  Varsity  are  requested  to  appear:  in 
the  Basement  lof  the  SAC  building) 
office. any  time  this  week. 

A  meeting  for  all  staffers  will  be 
held  Friday  at  3.00  p.m.

Stuck  without  a  home  ?  No  ac- 
commodation for  the  coming  term  ? 
Some  homeless  students  are  applying 
to  the  housing  service  operating  for 
the  present  week  in  the  Hart  House 
Debates  Room. 

The  housing  service  is  one  of  the 
services  operated  by  the  Students' 
Administrative  Council.  On  hand  are 
kept  extensive  lists  on  various  ac- 
commodations available. 

Types  of  accommodations  include 
room,  room  and  board,  flats  and 
apartments  available  in  all  parts  of 
Toronto.  The  great  majority  are  in 
the  University  district. 

Miss  Charlotte  Holmes,  UC  '56,  is 
in  charge  of  the  housing  service. 
She  reports  practically  unlimited 
room  available.  Although  the  SAC 
housing  service  cannot  inspect  ac- 
commodations, Miss  Holmes  says  no 
one  has  come  back  with  complaints 
and  everyone  seems  to  be  satisfied. 

The  housing  service  will  be  in  full 
operation  in  the  HH  Debates  Room 
only  until  this  Friday.  After  that 
date,  anyone  seeking  accommodation 
can  use  the  SAC  housing  sedvice

Blues  Come  From  Behind 
To  Trip  McMasters  17-8 

Tuesday,  Sept.  25.  1956.  THE  VARSITY 

Hamilton,  Out.,  (Sept.  22)— Varsity  Blues  exploded  for  a 
pair  of  converted  touchdowns  early 'in  the  second  half  here 
this  afternoon  to  overhaul  an  8—1  half-time  deficit  and  go 
on  to  a  17—8  win  over  McMaser  Marauders.  The  intercollegi- 
ate exhibition  game,  first  of  the  season  for  both  teams,  gave 
McMaster's  new  football  field  its  initiation  as  some  400 
chilled  fans  sat  in  on  the  battle. 

65-Yard  Drive 

With  captain-quarterback  Ed 
Skrzypek  at  the  helm  the  Blues 
marched  65  yards  on  the  ground 
for  their  first  major.  Tim  Reid 
ploughed  for  43  yards  on  two 
consecutive  plays  around  the  end. 
Ross  Woods  who  showed  today 
that  his  one-year  layoff  from  the 
game  has  proven  no  handicap, 
carried  to  the  six  from  where 
Skrzypek  hit  Dave  Cresswell  for 
the  score.  Perfect  faking  by  Reid 
and  Peter  Maik  drew  the  Ma- 
rauder linebackers  in  close  and 
Cresswell  crossed  the  line  10 
yards  away  from  the  nearest 
would-be  tackier. 

Five  plays  later.  Varsity  hit 
pay  dirt  again.  Mac  received  the 
kickoff  but  failed  to  move  the 
ball  on  two  plays.  Guard  Don 
Johnston  broke  through  to 
block  Pete  Mitchell's  kick  and 
the  Blues  took  over  the  Marauder 
35.  Skrzypek  faded  back  to  pass, 
and  although  rushed  on  the  play, 
lofted  a  strike  to  scatback  Wood?. 
The  little  fellow  gathered  it  in 
and  scooted  over  for  the  touch- 
down. "Magic  Toe"  Maik  con- 
verted both  the  majors. 

Mac  Hits  First 

The  Marauders  gave  early  me- 
dication of  a  possible  upset.  The 
game  was  barely  five  minutes 
old  before  McMaster  quarterback 
Russ  Jackson  picked  up  a  loose 
ball  at  the  Varsity  15  and  raced 
over  ifor  a  touchdown.  Butch 
Rogers,  who  played  a  standout 
two-way  game  for  the  losers, 
made  the  score  possible  with  a 
smashing  tackle-block  thrown 
at  Varsity's  Maik,  causing  the 
Blue  ball-carrier  to  fumble  the 
pigskin.  Jackson  converted  his 
own  major. 

Woods  added  a  single  before 
the  first  half  ended  and  the  Blues 
rounded  out  their  scoring  late  in 
the  game  with  a  safety  touch. 

Near  TD 

Varsity  came  very  close  to 
adding  to  their  margin  of  vic- 
tory   on   the   last   play  of  the 

game,  when  Harry  Wilson  toss- 
ed a  35  yard  pass  to  end  Bob  Lee. 
Lee  was  nailed  on  the  four- 
yard  line  as  the  gun  sounded. 

Skrzypek  handled  the  signal- 
calling  duties  for  most  of  the 
game,  with  Larry  Joynt  appeal- 
ing occasionally  and  Wilson  in  the 
final  five  minutes.  The  Blues, 
entering  the  fray  with  advance 
reports  of  a  strong  passing  at- 
tack, completed  only  one  aerial 
in  the  first  halt  as  tense  quarter- 
backs constantly  overthrew  their 
marks.  Skrzypek  and  Wilson 
completed  eight  of  13  in  the  final 
thirty  minutes. 

The  Blues  put  on  a  great  goal- 
line  stand  in  the  fourth  period 
as  McMaster  threatened  to  tie  up 
the  game.  Three  smashes  from  the 
seven  netted  the  Marauders  a 
six-yard  gain  as  the  Varsity  line 
held  solid.

Coach  Dalt  White  spends  the 
coming  week  prepping  his  charges 
for  the  Varsity  Stadium  game

possible  this  week,  but  the  whole- 
sale chopping  won't  start  until 
after  the  battle  with  the  ORFU

I  was  saying 

By  Merle  Overholt 

This  is  certainly  the  time  of 
year  for  firsts  —  first  football 
game,  first  lecture,  first  meeting 
and  whether  this  is  your  first 
day  on  campus  (relatively 
speaking)  or  your  first  day  back. 
I  would  like  to  take  the  oppor- 
tunity to  say  "Hi,  and  welcome." 

You.  who  are  new  to  the 
campus,  will  no  doubt  want  to 
know  what  lies  in  store  for  you 
in  the  way  of  sports — for  women 
that  is. 

The  required  first  year  phys  ed 
programme  is  merely  a  drop  in 
the  bucket  compared  to  other 
athletic  endeavours.  There  are 
interfaculty  teams  of  every' sport 
on  the  books  up  to  and  including 
football  l  just  ask  the  types  from 
St.  Hilda's.)  Swimming  practices 
will  soon  be  starting,  tennis 
matches  will  soon  be  in  full 
swing,  and  the  archers  will  soon 
be  taking  a  noon-hour  lease  on 
the  stadium.  With  intercollegiate 
tournaments  on  tap  within  the 
next  two  month's  for  these  three 
sports  there  is  no  time  to  be 
lost.  Oh,  yes,  mustn't  forget  to 
mention  the  blue-jeaned  indivi- 
duals that  will  be  occupying  the 
sandlots  en  masse  as  practices 
start  and  our  little  wor,ld  ifrjes 

An  intercollegiate  berth  is  as 
the  icing  is  to  the  cake  and  may 
I  add,  these  coveted  berths  are 
not  restricted  to  uppetclass 
types  but  are  yours  for  the  tak- 
ing if  you  can  meet  the  neces- 
sary standards.  The  Intercolle- 
giate Tennis  Tournament  is 
coming  up  October  19-20  with 
McMaster  hostessing  the  event. 
Mary  fJunns,  last  year's  Inter- 
collegiate Single  Champion,  is 
tennis  curator  this  year  so  why 
not  get  with  the  racquet  and 
show  her  what  you  can  do.  We 
must  retain  the  tennis  crown. 

Just  a  word  to  the  Freshies: 
Sports  participation  is  without  a 
doubt  one  of  the  best  ways  to 
win  yourself  a  niche  in  college 
life  and  meet  many  new  friends 
besides.  Believe  me,  you  don't 
have  to  be  Olympic  material  to 
qualify — few  are — and  if  you 
feel  that  yOur  athletic  talents 
are  utterly  lacking  there  is  al- 
ways a  most  important  mana- 
gerial position  awaiting  you. 
Also  keep  an  eagle  eye  on  the 
athletic  notice  boards  and  THE

BSESS  ifirtib  AS  US  *****  on*  «  the  cornerstones  of  the 
Intercollegiate  Un.on.  Varsity  boasts  just  about  the  best  Intra- 
mural system  on  the  continent.  Whether  it  be  as  spectator  or 
participant,  athletic  Interest  is  an  integral  part  of  university  life 
Its  been  great  in  the  past  .  .  .  lets  make  this  year  the  best  yet. 
So  much  for  our  welcomes.  Now  on  to  some  football  gab. 


For  the  past  four  or  five  seasons,  ex-Varsity  Blue  coach  Bob 
Masterson  made  great  promises  of  a  "passing  team."  And  for  each 
of  those  seasons,  the  Blues  have  come  up  with  a  great  year  along 
the  ground  and  pretty  mediocre  aerial  successes. 

This  year,  with  freshman  coach  Dalt  White  at  the  helm,  the 
story  out  of  the  Lake  Couchiching  training  camp  was  much  ttie 
same.  "Fill  the  air  with  footballs"  was  the  favourite  plirasc  tossed 
around  by  sportswriters  in  attendance  at  the  camp.  All  eyes  at  the 
Varsity-McMaster  game  on  Saturday  fixed  on  the  sky  in 
search  of  Varsity's  airborne  pigskins. 

Those  eyes  saw  Messrs.  Skrzypek,  Joynt  and  Wilson  toss  a 
total  of  22  passes,  of  which  nine  were  completed.  The  average  gain 
per  completion  was  16.6  yards.  Last  season,  in  six  league -games, 
Varsity  attempted  111  passes.  Fifty-one  of  those  were  successful 
for  an  average  gain  of  6.1  yards. 

All  of  which  indicates  that  the  Blues  could  very  well  throw 
approximately  the  same  number  of  passes  this  year  as  last,  hut 
aun  for  the  long  completion  rather  than  the  shorter  pass-and-run 

Although  both  Varsity  touchdowns  against  the  Marauders 
were  counted  on  pass  plays,  neither  one  was  the  result  of  a  series 
of  successive  passes.  The  Blues  moved  the  pigskin  60  yards  along 
the  ground  (on  only  three  plays)  before  captain  Skrzypek  hit 
Cresswell  on  the  Mac  six  and  Dave  scampered  over  for  the  TD. 

Little  Ross  Woods  counted  the  other  on  a  35-yard  puss  after 
guard  Don  Johnston  had  blocked  a  third-down  McMaster  punt. 

Skrzypek  and  Joynt,  who  handled  the  signal-calling  during  the 
first  half,  were  wide  of  their  targets  during  the  first  30  minutes, 
and  completed  only  one  pass  (in  nine  tries)  for  a  net  gain,  of 
three  yards.  Confidence  and  calmness  increased  as  the  game  went, 
on,  and  things  picked  up  considerably  in  the  second  half. 

The  fact  that  it  was  discovered  at  the  half  that  Varsity  had 
played  the  first  two  quarters  with  a  balanced  line  against  an 
unbalanced  Mac  front-wall  didn't  help  matters  much  as  tar  as  the 
Blues*  pass-protection  was  concerned. 

But  that  is  just  one  of  the  early  season  kinks  to  be  ironed 
out.  On  the  whole.  Varsity  came  up  with  a  reasonably  good 
showing  (considering  that  they  had  but  three  scrimmages  at 
camp  and  didn't  play  an  intra-squad  garnet  and  it  looks  like  a 
sure  bet  that  McGill's  present  confidence  won't  remain  quite  so 
high  as  the  season  progresses. 

The  game  was  played  right  on  the  McMaster  campus,  and 
marked  the  start  of  a  new  era  in  that  college's  football  history. 
Although  lacking  the  helpful  scoreboard  and  clock,  the  bleachers, 
pressbox  and  P.A.  system  were  all  in  operation.  The  field  itself 
was  in  great  shape,  even  after  the  drizr.zle  which  started  during 
the  half. 

In  case  any  of  you  were  there  and  happened  to  notice  tire 
little  guy  (with  the  big  smile)  trotting  around,  he's  Ivor  Wynne, 
the  big  gun  behind  the  new  setup.  A  hard  worker  and  a  great 
personality,  Ivor  well-deserves  a  pat  on  the  back  for  his  undying 
efforts  to  build  the  Marauders  up  for  the  day  when  they  will  get 
another  crack  at  Intercollegiate  senior  play. 

The  fans  at  the  Mac  game  got  quite  a  kick  out  of  the  P.A. 
system  ...  It  was  tuned  so  that  every  word  said  by  anybody  in 
the  press  box  echoed  across  the  field  .  .  .  The  referees  seemed 
about  as  ragged  as  the  game  was  at  times  .  .  .  The  Blues  shunted 
through  a  sweat-suit  workout  last  night  .  .  .  NOT  on  the  back 
campus  as  some  soul  offered  .  .  .  Those  characters  are  Toronto's 
hope  for  the  Grey  Cup  ...  A  great  ticket  deal  arranged  this 
year  .  .  .  Check  the  story  on  this  page  and  the  ad  .  .  .  Other 
exhibition  games  on  the  weekend  saw  Western  trounce  UBC 
Thunderbirds  38-13  and  Queen's  drop  a  25-0  battle  to  Balmy  Beach

Student  Tickets  •  • 

The  feature  of  the  revised  student  ticket  program  to  be 
launched  this  year  is  a  combination  football-hockey  season 
ticket  booklet.  Purchase  of  this  booklet  will  admit  the  holder 
tn  all  home  games  of  the  football  and  hockey  Blues. 

The  price  of  the  booklet  —  a  very  nominable  $2.50  —  is 
extremely  low  considering  the  benefits.  Included  in  the  foot- 
ball section  ape  tickets  to  the  three  Intercollegiate  games,  the 
pre-season  battle  with  Kitchener  Dutchmen  coming  up  this 
Saturday,  and.  should  the  Blues  finish  on  lop  of  the  heap  this 
fall,  a  ticket  to  the  November  17  playoff.  The  hockey  ducats 
are  good  for  the  six  home  games  of  Jack  Kennedy's  ice  Blues. 

If  one  wishes  to  buy  only  the  football  tickets,  the  cost  is 
$2.00.  Hockey  tickets  purchased  separately  will  run  $1.00. 

The  football  booklets  and  the  $2.50  combination  tickets 
will  go  on  sale  Thursday  at  the  south  door  of  the  Arena  from 
10  in  the  morning  until  5.30  at  night.  One  reminder,  however 

 students  must  show  their  Admit-to-Lectures  (ATL1  card. 

Tickets  will  not  be  sold  to  those  who  are  unable  to  produce 
the  precious  identification  tag. 

The  Arena,  for  the  benefit  of  those  as  yet  unfamiliar 
with  Ihe  Campus,  is  located  on  Blpor  Street,  just  east  of  the 
Stadium.  The.south  door  is  at  the  rear  of  the  ice  palace. 


The  locale?  The  sports  dungeon. 

The  time?  Take  your  choice. 

The  event?  Just  about  anything 

The  personnel?  Practically  nobody. 

Are  you   digging  oiir  drivel? 

The  general  Idea  behind  thK  hog- 
wash  Is  that  the  Spoils  Depart- 
ment of  the  Varsity  now  stands 
about  zero  strong. 

We  do  have  a  Brooks  character  who 
lays  claim  to  the  Sport*  Hdltor*hlp, 
we  have  his  little  right  hand  man 
Howie  Mandell,  and  our  young 
lassie,  Merle  on  the  ladles'  .ingle. 

As  for  the  rest,  we  have  nothing.

Inadequate  Space  Forces

For  muddled  frosh  .  .  .  one  way  out.

Glendon  Hall,  an  84  acre  estate, 
was  bequeathed  to  the  Univer- 
sity by  the  late  Mrs.  E.  R.  Wood, 
wife  of  the  wealthy  stock 
broker.  An  extension  had  to  be 
built  to  the  mansion  for  addi- 
tional library  space. 

According  to  Administration 
officials  the  move  is  regarded  as 
temporary,  lasting  probably 
from  three  to  five  years. 

Inadequate  space  on  the  Cam- 
pus and  increased  enrolment 
have  forced  the  move.  Since 
most  lectures  in  the  Law  School 
are  given  in  the  morning,  extra- 
curricular activities  o  f  Law 
students  will  still  be  closely 
linked  to  those  of  the  main

New  Residence 
Coming  to  SMC 

A  new  $1,250,000  men's  residence  is  under  construction 
at  St.  Michael's  College.  The  building,  designed  to  accommo- 
date 200  students  wil  be  opened  in  September,  1957. 

The  Cornerstone  to  the  new  Elmsley  Hall  was  laid  Sept. 
16  by  His  Eminence  James  Ordinal  McGuigan. 
Located  on  the  site  of  the  pre 



Try  To  Get  Honors, 
The  President  Says 


President  Sidney  Smith  told  2,500  undergraduates  yesterday  success  in  studies  is  the 
most  important  single  achievement  in  University  and  the  only  way  to  get  it  is  to  start 
working  right  now. 

"It  is  simply  a  fact  of  University  life,"  the  president  said,  "that  loafing  for  the  first 
term  and  cramming  before  exams  is  not  good  enough.  If  L  could  sear  that  message  on  your 
brains,  you  would  be  the  most  successful  entering  class  in  our  recent  history. 

"Try  to  do  the  very  best  work  you  can." 

sent  Elmsley  Hall,  parallel  to 
the  men's  residences  of  Victoria 
College,  on  the  south  side  of 
St.  Mary's  street,  the  residence 
is  planned  to  alleviate  the  prob- 
lem of  crowding  and  out-dated 
housing.  Previously',  St.  Mich- 
ael's has  been  noted  for  its 
unique  "house  system".  The  ma- 
jority of  the  students  live  in 
individual  houses,  scattered  over 
the  campus,  and  governed  by  in- 
dividual prefects. 

"We  want  to  improve  the  liv- 
ing conditions  of  the  students," 
said  the  Rev.  James  Kelly,  bur- 
sar of  the  college.  "We  realize 
the  necessity  of  proper  surround- 
ings to  create  the  proper  study 
atmosphere,  and  we  hope  to 
achieve  this  by  bringing  every- 
thing up  to  date." 

Father  Kelly  said  that  the  old 
system  of  individual  houses  was 
becoming  seriously  impractical, 
particularly-  due  to  the  condition 
of  the  older  houses.  "Actually, 
this  does  mark  the  passing  of 
an  era,"  he  said,  "and  we  hope 
that  it  will  be  the  beginning  of 
a  better  one." 

The  mens'  residence  is  part  of 
a  larger  plan  of  residence  expan- 
sion -at   St.   Michael's  College. 

St.  Joseph's  College,  a  women's 
residence  of  the  college  on 
Wellesley  Street,  completed  one 
new  building  two  years  ago, 
and  another  this  fall.  Loretto 
College,  another  women's  resi- 
dence, is  planning  to  move  from 
its  presnt  location  on  86  St. 
George  Street  to  property  on  St. 
Mary's  Street,  directly  opposite 
the  mens'  residence  now  under 
construction.  The  two  biuldings 
have  been  designed  in  a  similar 
style  by  architects  Brennan  and 
Whale,  both  graduates  of  the 
University  of  Toronto. 

In  addition  to  its  200  students, 
(See  NEW,  Page  3 

Dr.  Smith,  who  recently  re- 
ceived his  fifteenth  honorary  de- 
gree, emphasized  the  need  for 
academic  success  by'  quoting  in- 
dustrial leaders  of  Canada,  whom 
he  met  at  a  September  confer- 
ence on  educated  manpower  in 
the  Canadian  economy. 

"We  need  quality,"  the  presi- 
dent was  told.  "We  would  rather 
have  one  good  graduate  who  has 
excelled  in  his  academic  prepara- 
tion than  twenty  who  have  just 
scraped  through." 

President  Smith  referred  to 
Prof.  Karl  Bernhardt's  pamph- 
let "Making  the  Most  of  Your 
College  Career"  as  a  useful  aid 
to  freshmen.  He  said  Dr.  Bern- 
hardt  suggests  a  balanced  re- 

gime, including  not  only  the  con- 
centrated proteins  of  study,  but 
"the  carbohydrates  of  exercise 
and  the  fats  of  amusement." 

The  president  approached  from 
an    unusual    side    the  current 
headline    problem    of  Canada's 
shortage  of  engineers  and  scien- 
tists. He  quoted  Dr.  James  R. 
Killian,  head  of  the  Massachu- 
setts Institute  of  Technology: 
"For  the  long  pull  I  Oiink 
the   nation    would    be  better 
served  by  augmenting  the  to- 
tal pool  of  exceptional  talent 
so   that  all   of  Our  profes- 
sions benefit,  rather  Chan  by 
giving    attention    to  getting 
more  talent  into  science  and 
engineering,  even  though  the 
need  for  manpower  in  these 

fields  is  at  present  time  the 
most  urgent," 

A  university  teaching  career 
was  suggested  as  a  satisfying 
and  valuable  future. 

The  president  said  work  here 
— no  matter  what  the  ultimate 
objective — is  crucial  to  attaining 
any  goal. 

Opportunities  for  women  were 
called  "practically  unlimited,  pro- 
viding they  will  set  their  si  ,hts 
high  and  continue  their  education 
as  far  and  as  thoroughly  as 
their  ability  will  warrant." 

President  Smith  mentioned 
Toronto's  high  standards.  '  The 
university  cannot  meet  the 
needs  of  the  country  for  gradu- 
ates by  dropping  its  standards, 
(See   SMITH,   Page  3> 

Is  This  First  Ripple  of  the  Wave? 

Arts  Colleges:  No 

Freshman  enrolment  in  Arts  has  stayed  static  or  dropped 
in  three  out  of  four  colleges  at  the  University. 

University  College  is  the  only  one  with  more  freshmen 
than  last  year.  Speculation  is  UC  first-year  enrolment  will 
rise  10  per  cent  to  top  500. 

 •    The  drop  in  enrolment  at  St. 

Michael's   College   may   be  be- 

cause oi'  "heavy  enrolment  in  en- 
gineering" which  "may  have 
drained  off  some  of  our  men," 
registrar  Rev.  C.  J.  Lavery  said 
last  night.  Higher 
standards  for  entrance  in  the 
past  two  years  may  also  'have 
caused  the  drop,  he  said. 

Freshman  enrolment  at  SMC 
has  dropped  from  247  to  about 

Whatever  the  reasons  may  be,  the  fact  remains  that  we 

need  university  graduates  as  we  have  never  needty 

them  before.  t___

Sciences:  Yes 


Freshman  enrolment  in  the  Fa- 
culty of  Engineering  soared  al-

220.  Father  Lavery  had  forecast 
a  first-year  enrolment  this  year 
of  280.  Total  enrolment  is  about 
the  same,  because  of  high  second 
and  third-year  classes. 
The  picture  is  much  the  same

'  registration  is  down  13  to  160 
this  year,  but  total  enrolment 
remains  about  the  same,  Regi- 
strar A.  J.  Earp  said. 

Victoria  College  first-year  regi- 
stration is  about  350,  same  as 
last  year. 


Freshmen  registration  in  Ar- 
chitecture has  almost  doubled, 
Professor  H.  H.  Madill.  Director 
of  the  School  of  Architecture  an- 
nounced last  night. 

"We  did  not  expect  the  increase 
this  year,'*  he  said.  Ninety  stud- 
ents registered  this  year  instead 
of  last  year's  fifty  five. 

Unless  it  has  more  staff  and  ac- 
comodation, the  School  of  Archi- 
tecture will  have  to  limit  its 
number  of  students,  in  the  future, 
he  said. 

Is  the  flood  of  university  students  predicted  for  1965 
already  hitting  Toronto  University?  Or  will  the  rise  in 
enrolment  prove  to  be  nothing  but  a  shift  from  arts  to 
technical  subjects?  , 

The  university  must  wait  and  see  to  what  extent  its  dustrial  resea,.ch  und  defen  or

Work  at  the  Institute,  only  lull-

in  Canada,  has  become  inter- 
nationally famous.  Scientists 
around  the  world  have  applied  for

feet  of  floor  space  at  the  In- 
stitute, on  the  edge  of  the  RCAF 
Downsview  jet  field.  This  would 
double  its  space  and  cost  $500,000.

THE  VARSITY,  Thursday,  Sept.  27,  1956 

It  is  while  I  am  pausing  under 
the  Chestnut  boughs  that  it  hits 
me,  and  I  realize  at  once  that  it 
is  for  the  birdies,  an  auguring  of 
•what  is  to  befall,  which  is,  after 
all,  my  kind  of  a  line. 

Though  it  is  being  somewhat 
unusual  for  my  inspirations  to  be 
drippling  down  to  me  from  the 
heavens,  as  they  more  usually 
come,  sticking  on  the  ends  of 
steamish  tridents,  front  more 
nether-type  regions!  I  am  still 
getting  the  point  for  I  am  a  very 
sharp  felon  indeed.

Conference  "Political  Football" 

International  Wrangling 

Bill  Smyth,  former-  Varsity  staffer,  and  a  U  of  T  student,  wrote 
this  report  on  the  August  conference  of  the  International  Union  of 
Students  in  Prague,  Czechoslovakia,  which  he  attended  as  an  observer. 
Representatives  of  Canada's  national  student  federation  also  attended 
the  conference  as  observers,  _  since  Canada  is  not  now  a  member  of 
IUS,  frequently  referred  to  as  communist-dominated.  Instead,  Canada, 
along  with  many  other  countries,  is  a  member  of  Cosec,  another  inter- 
national university  student  federation,  also  knoion  as  ISC. 

uneducated  masses 

It  is  hardly  necessary  to  point  out  that  this  coun- 
try and  the  United  States  are  hungry  for  trained  lead- 
ers and  professional  men.  Their  need-bas  been  ham- 
mered home  recently  in  articles  and  editorials  in  —  to 
name  but  a  few  —  Saturday  Night  magazine,  The 
Globe  and  Mail,  Newsweek,  Life,  MacLeans  and  At- 
lantic Monthly.  It  was  a  major  topic  of  the  conference 
this  September  in  St.  Andrew's-By-The-Sea,  New 
Brunswick.  And  our  president  brought  it  up  yester- 
day afternoon. 

The  question  is:  what  can  be  done? 
President  Smith  almost  stated  one  solution  in  his 
opening  address: 

The  University  cannot  meet  the  needs 
of  the  country  for  graduates  by  dropping 
standards,  by  taking  everybody  in  and 
shoving  everybody  through.  If  that  were 
the  answer  to  the  problem,  we  might  as 
well  deliver  your  degree  to  you  as  you 
leave  this  hall  today. 

But  the  reasoning-just  as  is  necessitated  by  the 
circumstances  of  the  address-is  not  carried  to  its 
natural  (to  us)  conclusion. 

If  the  answer  is  not  in  dropping  the  standards,  it 
may  be  in  raising  them. 

Many  of  the  people  graduating  from  university 
today  are  not  educated  -  through  their  own  failings, 
not  through  those  of  their  education.  This  fact  is  ob- 
vious in  the  number  of  graduates  who  are  in  posi- 
tions that  persons  with  less  formal  education  would 
have  filled  as  adequately.  It  has  frequently  been 
stated  by  industrial  and  professional  leaders. 

Now,  as  the  first  faint  ripple  of  the  predicted 
wave  of  1960  hits  the  universities,  is  the  time  to  cull 
this  uneducated  mass  before  it  reaches  the  colleae 

This  university,  -  and  others  of  course  -  are 
teaching  people  who  are  not  benefiting  by  its  op- 
portunities, at  the  expense  of  several  who  can. 

Those  people  would  be  better  educated  at  the 
system  of  Junior  College  that  has  often  been  pro- 
posed but  is  apparently  as  yet  unplanned. 

There  are,  of  course,  many  other  things  that  must 
be  done  before  the  universities  are  hit  by  the  great 
mflux  of  students,  and  before  the  Western  world 
suffers  greatly  because  of  its  lack  of  educated  man- 

But  surely,  raising  the  standards  of  admission  to 
our  seats  of  highest  learning  is  the  first  and  most  im- 
portant step. 

PRAGUE  (CUP)  —  After  a  week  of  national- 
istic wrangling  at  the  fourth  World  Student 
Congress  held  here  this  month,  many  Western 
observers  were  sorely  tempted  to  promulgate  a 
new  theory  of  political  determinism.  Student 
delegates  from  all  parts  of  the  world  found 
themselves  unable  to  temper  their  national  and 
ideological  feelings,  with  the  result  that  the  so- 
called  "conference  of  unity"  was  turned  into  an 
arena  for  political  football  between  Arabs  and 
Israelis,  colonial  countries  and  metropolitan 
centres,  Russian  satellites  and  the  democratic 

Canadian  observers  from  the  national  stu- 
dent federation  played  a  prominent  part  in 
the   discussion    (ana   made   mem  selves  un- 
popular in  the  Czech  press)  by  insisting  that 
if  the  congress  wished  to  help  colonial  coun- 
tries to  independence,  it  should'  also  consider 
the  subjugated  countries  of  eastern  Europe. 
The  International  Union  of  Students,  the  pro- 
communist   student   organization   which  spon- 
sored the  lavish  conference  at  the  "Julius  Fucik 
Palace  of  Culture  and  Recreation",  relaxed  its 
violent  anti-West  policy  in  keeping  with  the 
Moscow-centered    "reappraisal"    of    the  world 
situation,  only  to  find  its  line  of  "peace,  unity, 
and  co-operation"  baffled  by  the  violent  opinions 
of  groups  from  Africa,  Asia  and  South  America. 

The  concrete  results  of  the  conference  are  to 
be  found  largely  in  two  fields:  promotion  of 
unity  in  the  student  world  (presently  divided 
into  two  camps  around  the- IUS  and  the  pro- 
West  International  Student  Conference)  and 
contributions  to  the  struggle  against  colonialism. 
While  the  end  of  unity  was  not  furthered  as 
much  as  the  IUS  appeared  to  hope,  plans  were 
made  to  establish  a  conference  of  co-operation, 
with  France  and  Tunisia  forming  the  prepara- 
tory committee.  The  two  countries  had  previ- 
ously indicated  their  willingness  to  prepare  for 
the  conference:  the  IUS  simply  supported  their 

Among  the  delegates  themselves,  little  was 
accomplished  to  bring  eastern  and  western 
ideologies  closer  together.    Most  delegates  to 
the  ISC  regard  IUS  as  both  politically  parti- 
san (Communist)  and  too  much  controlled  by 
the  administrative  superstructure. 
Several  colonialism  ■  seminars  were,  ammged 
for  next  year,  with  and  without  the  auspices  of 
the  IUS,  and  plans  were  laid  to  issue  a  "White 
Book",  giving  detailed  information  on  the  situa- 
tion in  colonial  countries. 

Many  delegates  found  the  moderate  state- 
ments of  the  west  scarcely  strong  enough  to 
satisfy  their  impassioned  pleas  for  independence. 
The  IUS  executive  appeared  to  encourage  one- 
sided statements,  and  certainly  scored  a  diplo- 

matic success,  which  the  forthcoming  ISC  will 
have  to  match. 

Not  all  the  diplomatic  laurels  went  to  the 
East,  however.  The  delegations  from  Sudan, 
Morocco,    Cyprus,    etc.,    were   at   least  wen 
warned  of  t?ie  situation  in  eastern  Europe  by 
the  criticisms  of  Canada  and  Great  Britain 
on  the  lack  of  student  freedom  in  those  satel- 
lite countries. 
Often  the  executive  found  itself  in  the  difficult 
position  of  moderating  violent  charges  of  such 
as  the  Japanese,  who  accused  the  "American 
imperialists"  on  Okinawa  of,  among  other  things, 
"forcing  the  extension  of  the   (air)   bases  by 

A  distinct  change  in  IUS  policy,  at  least  on 
the  surface,  was  noted  this  year,  leading  to  a 
more  moderate  attitude  toward  the  West.  While 
still  highly  political  in  character,  there  were 
signs  that  it  might  welcome  at  least  co-opera- 
tion among  students  of  the  world,  despite  the 
fact  that  politics  must  enter  into  whatever  they 

A  major  reason  for  this  charge  probably  is 
that  the  IUS  wishes  to  enlist  the  support  of 
as  many  national  student  groups  as  possible, 
to  ensure  the  success  of  its  programmes  and 
to  help  it  in  its  losing  (and  partly  imaginary) 
struggle  with  the  ISC. 
The  NFCUS  (National  Federation  of  Canadian 
University  Students)   delegation,  consisting  of 
Peter  Martin  (IV  Toronto),  Walter  Tarnapolsky 
(Saskatchewtn),  David  Peele  (Dalhousie),  Den- 
nis Madden  and  Scott  Symons,  unfortunately 
attended  without  a  fixed  policy  toward  many 
situations  that  arose  during  the  congress,  and 
without  sufficient  documentation  to  prove  points 
on  factual  matters. 

The  policy  which  evolved  was  generally  to 
support-  the  stand  of  colonized  countries,  but 
to  try  to  give  them  some  idea  of  restricted 
freedoms  in  communist  countries. 
Several  resolutions  were  passed  which -did  not 
directly  concern  students,  the  most  topical  being 
one  in  support  of  Nasser's  stand  on  the  Suez 
Canal.  References  to  persecution  of  students  in 
the   German   Democratic  -Republic  or  Czecho- 
slovakia were  labelled  "interfering". 

All  references  to  the  "fight  against  Fascism" 
in  the  IUS  constitution  were  removed.  Signifi- 
cantly, greater  emphasis  was  placed  on  the 
"fight  against  colonialism",  much  less  a  dead 

The  congress  was,  in  short,  not  a  great  suc- 
cess and  certainly  much  less  than  the  students  of 
1946  would  have  hoped  for  when  they  gathered 
solemnly  in  Prague  to  formulate  the  first  con- 
stitution : 

"We,  the  students  of  the  world,  .  .  ." 

Largest  University  Paper 
Still  Has  Room  For  You 

This  fall,  The  Varsity,  the  se- 
cond-oldest college  publication 
in  Canada,  enters  its  76th  year 
of  publication. 

Founded  way  back  in  1880, 
when  the  merits  of  admitting 
women  as  undergraduates  were 
still  being  debated  on  this  cam- 
pus, the  '  paper  has  undergone 
many  changes  through  the 
years.  It  has  turned  from  a 
literary-style  weekly  into  a 
news  daily,  and  from  a  private- 
ly owned  company  into  an 
undertaking  of  the  university's 
student  council. 

The  paper's  history  has  been 
far  from  uneventful.  Although 
The  Varsity  is  now  the-  largest 
college  paper     in  the  British 


Commonwealth,  its  early  years 
were  not  easy,  and  one  editor, 
Jas.  Tucker,  was  expelled  for  his 
criticism  of  the  university  ad-

Since  the  paper  is  produced 
entirely  by  the  voluntary  efforts 
of  students,  there  are  many  va- 
cancies on  its  staff  at  the  be- 
ginning of  the  school  year.  If

Away ! 

It's  unfortunate  that  so  many 
of  the  war  movies  that  have 
snuck  into  the  local  scene  via 
Hollywood's  production  line  have 
so  little  to  offer  in  originality. 
So  often  you'll  see  the  same  trite, 
stereotyped  characters  camou- 
flaged in  a  pot  pourri  of  dram- 
atic war-torn  settings,  as  I  found 
in  Away  AH  Boats.  - 

With  a  melange  of  characters 
appearing  periodically  between 
the  yells  of  "Kamikaze"  and  the 
smoke  of  battle,  director  Pevney 
has  constructed  a  hackneyed 
plot  reminiscent  of  a  fill-in  fol- 
Jowinga  TV  newscast.  The  char- 
acters range  from  the  ambitious, 
perfection-seeking  captain  (Jeff 
Chandler)  to  the  ever-popular 
embittered  subordinate  officer 
(George  Nader),  add  the  war- 
hater,  the  all-American  boy  and 
the  expectant  father  and  the 
product  spells  "boredom." 

Suave,  wavy-haired  Chandler, 
although  acting  well,  seemed  as 
much  at  home  as  Hopalong 
Cassidy  would  in  a"  musical. 
Nader  is  about  the  only  first 
string  offering.

THE  VARSITY,  Thursday,  Sept.  27,  195S  9 


Tonight  at  8:30  —  The  Don  Cossack  chorus  and  orchestra  will  give  its  an- 
nual prcgram  of  choral  music  and  folk  dancing  at  Massey  Hall  under  the 
baton  of  Director  Platofl. 

A  new  film  from  the.  director- 
ial hand  of  Richard  Brooks,  The 
Catered  Affair,  has  been  coupled 
by  word  of  mouth  and  crafty  ad- 
vertising: with  an  earlier  film 
(like  this  one,  written  by  Paddy 
Chayef  sky,  Marty.  But  The 
Catered  Affair  snow  at  the  Towne 
and  the  Circle,  is  a  far  cry  from 
that  humorous  and  warm-heart- 
ed treatment  of  life  in  the  Bronx. 

The  principals  of  The  Catered 
Affair  inhabit  the  Bronx  too,  but 
as  the  film  progresses  one  is  left 
with  the  suspicion  that  they 
would  be  more  at  home  in  a  play 
by  Strindberg. 

Though  an  attempt  has  pat- 
ently been  made  to  complete  in 
the  public's  eye  Ernest  Borg- 
nine's  identification  with  the 
role  of  the  lovable  "little  man" 
begun  in  Marty,  author  Chayef- 
sky  has  been  one  up  on  the  film's 
producers  all  the  way  along.  The 
character  of  Hurley  the  elderly 
taxi-cab  driver  is  a  far  more 
realistic  (and  less  warmly  obser- 
ved) one  than  Marty's. 

Hurley  is  the  man  who  was 
caught  in  the  fate  that  Marty  es- 
caped. What  is  more,  his  stub- 
born but  lifeless  existence  with 
his  wife  Agnes  (Bette  Davis) 
and  daughter  (Debbie  Reynolds) 
is  meatier  stuff  for  the  realistic 
drama  than  M.G.M.  ever  realized. 

The  hook  on  which  this  superb 
little  episode  is  hung  is  the 
daughter's  attempt  to  marry  her 
long-time  suitor  in  a  quiet  and 
inexpensive  wedding.  Both  fami- 
lies, however,  erupt  at  her  desire 
to  go  without  a  "weddin'  party," 
in  favour  of  a  lengthy  honey- 

By  the  film's  end,  Agnes  Hur- 
ley, whose  stubborn  efforts  to 
provide  her  daughter  with  the 
kind  of  wedding  she  had  to-  do 
without,  has  become  the  central 
character  in  one  of  the  motion 
pictures'  more  profound  assess- 
ments of  a  woman's  responsibili- 
ty to  her  home  and  her  husband. 

Forced  into  a  shocking  and 
loveless  marriage,  Agnes  has 
long  ago  surrendered  in  the  bat- 
tle against  poverty  of  .existence 
as  well  as  of  spirit. 

Agnes'  bitter,  time-sodden  re- 
lations with  her  husband  are  de- 
lineated with  relentless  realism 
by  Brooks  and  Chayefsky,  and 
Bette  Davis'  portrayal  emerges 
as  one  of  the  most  explicit  dis- 
sections of  character  the  films 
have  recently  given  us. 

The  Catered  Affair  is  not  a 
"charming"  film,  as  Marty  was 
but  neither  is  it  an  essay  in  so- 
cial criticism.  Agnes  Hurley's 
discovery  that  however  ignoble 
her  marriage  has  been,  her  hus- 
band has  been  her  whole  life; 
and  will  be  to  the  end  of  her 
days,  is  one  of  Thomas  Wolfe's 
"There  is  no  happy*  land.  There  is 
no  end  to  hunger  .  .  .  You  are 
your  world  .  .  .  This  is  life." 

The  realization  that  existence, 
however  good  or  bad,  cannot  be 
quarreled  with  because  it  is  sim- 
ply and  sublimely  there,  is  one 
of  the  most  subtle  the  U.  S.  cine- 
ma has  had  to  deal  with,  and  it 
is  to  the  credit  of  director  Brooks 
and  author  Chayefsky,  and  not 
least  of  all  to  Bette  Davis  and 
Ernest  Borgnine,  that  The  Cater- 
ed Affair  undertakes  it  so  brave- 
ly, * — Germaine  Clinton. 

If  the  language  of  Romeo 
and  Juliel  had  been  as  sensitive- 
ly articulated  as  the  stage  move- 
ment a  consummate  perform- 
ance would  have  resulted  in- 
stead of  the  current,  somewhat 
better  than  average  Old  Vic 
presentation.  Claire  Bloom,  a 
tremulous  Juliet,  with  spirited 
grace  and  fecund  gesture  mimed 
Romantic     grief  incomparably. 

John  Neville  is  one  of  those 
rare    actors   who    can  reveal 


For  its  opening  production  of 
the  season  the  Crest  Theatre 
chose  Anita  Loos'  adaptation  of 
Colette's  novel,  Gigi.  The  dif- 
ficulty in  adapting  a  French 
novel  for  the  English  stage  lies 
in  the  necessity  for  minimizing 
any  obviously  Anglo-Saxon  ele- 
ments which  will  destroy  the  il- 
lusion of  a  French  milieu.  The 
stage  setting  and  the  costumes 
are  of  course,  important  and  in- 
these  respects  the  Crest  produc- 
tion was  very  good.  The  charac- 
terizations, however,  produced 
too  many  jarring  notes  to  as- 
sure a  completely  satisfactory 

Kate  Reid's  portrayal  of  Gigi 
is  both  charming  and  intelligent. 
But  her  charm  is  that  of  the 
well-scrubbed  starry-eyed  all- 
American  girl  in  the  tradition  of 
Claudia  rather  than  that  of  the 
French  gamine. 

Colette's  Gaston  is  thirty- 
three  years  of  age,  a  sophistic- 
ated Parisian  gay-blade.  Austin 
Willis  however  gallops  around  in 
this  production  like  a  jaded  mid- 
western  tycoon  who  has  turned 
sugardaddy  which  is  something 
quite  different. 

Minor  characters  can  easily 
disturb  the  atmosphere  of  a  per- 
formance and  unfortunately 
Alan  Nunn  as  the  butler  sports 
a  casual  public  school  manner 
which  strikes  an  odd  note.  Sylvia 
Gillespie  as  Sidonie,  the  maid, 
has  a  disarming  tendency  to  pro- 
nounce "monsieur"  to  rhyme 
with  "sewer"  which  is  shatter- 
ing. It  is  difficult  willingly  to 
suspend  disbelief  when  con- 
.  fronted  with  this  sort  of  thing. 

I  did  admirg  the  vivacity, 
bounce  and  skill  of  Kate  Reid's 
performance;  but  I  am  forced  to 
confess  that,  as  a  whole,  this 
production  of  Gigi  was,  like 
Andree's  rendition  of  The  Bell 
Song  from  Lakxne,  a  little  off- 

Carinne  Stanley. 

emotion  by  concealing  it.  He 
admirably  expresses  the  tender- 
ness of  Romeo's  passion  by  his 
restraint  in  the  love  passages. 
Yet  he  allowed  his  uneasy  al- 
liance of  metre  and  meaning  to 
deprive  him  of  conviction  and 
even  occasionally  to  suggest  that 
Miss  Bloom  was  casting  her  ex- 
quisite movements  away  upon  a 
reluctant  piece  of  statuary.  (His 
down-at-heel  notice  of  jocund

discharge  and  marriage.  This 
early  period  takes  up  a  largt- 
part  of  the  film.  His  part  in  the 
war  is  passed  over  relative! j 
briefly,  especially  his  six  escapes 
from  German  prisoner  of  war 

One  would  have  expected  a 
film  of  this  type  to  do  the  op 
posite  —  to  be  either  an  action 
filled  war  drama  or  an  escape 
movie  such  as  Tie  CotdiU  Story 
or  The  Wooden  Horse.  We  have 
had  a  surfeit  of  both  varieties, 
and  this  is  precisely  what  mak- 
es Reach  For  The  Sky  attractive. 
It  avoids  the  hackneyed  and  em- 
phasizes the  unexpected. 

Unfortunately,  the  biography 
is  one  of  the  most  difficult 
literary  forms  to  successfully 
translate  to  the  screen.  It  is  all 
too  easy  to  over  glorify  the  her  J 
or  lapse  into  lush  sentimentality. 
On  the  other  hand,  it  is  equally 
easy  for  a  film  to  be  deadly  dull 
because  it  sticks  too  closely  to 
the  facts.  Possibly  worst  of  all, 
in  a  film  of  this  type  is  the  de- 
liberate distortion  of  the  truth 
(adding  .  a  non-existent  love 
story  for  example). 

Reach  For  The  Sky  doe:: 
not  completely  avoid  these  pi' 
falls.  Due  to  the  effort  of  the 
script  writers  to  include  as  much, 
of  Bader's  life  as  possible,  the 
film  is  over  long.  In  the  section 
dealing  with  the  Battle  of  Bri- 
tain, too  many  shots  of  aerial 
fighting  are  used,  with  the  re- 
sult that  the  pace  lags.  The  dia- 
logue tends  to  be  of  the  British 
stiff  upper  lip  variety,  which  has 
a  wearying  effect  on  the  viewer 
after  the  first  hour  or  so. 

Fortunately,  there  is  Utile 
evidence  of  sentimentality  and 
only  a  necessary  emphasis  on 
heroism.  Also,  the  film  has  a 
characteristically  British  sense 
of  humour  which  aids  it  over 
those  spots  where  it  shows  any 
danger  of  lapsing,  such  as  the 
long  hospital  sequence.  Finally, 
Kenneth  More  is  more  than  ade- 
quate in  the  main  role.  The  play- 
ing of  the  supporting  roles  is 
up  to  the  usual  British  standard. 
There  is  some  beautiful  aerial 
photography,  and  the  film  as  a 
whole  is  sensitively  directed. 

In  short,  then.  Reach  For 
The  Sky,  is  well  above  aver-

We  ordinarily  speak  of  automobile  bumpers,  grilles,  hub  caps  and 
bright  metal  trim  as  being  "chrome- plated"'.  Actually,  these  parts 

are  plated  with  both  nickel  and  chromium — a  heavy  coating  of 
nickel  covered  with  a  thin  layer  of  chromium.  All  the  nickel  used 

for  plating  auto  parts  and  other  products  of  Canadian  industry 
is  Inco  nickel— mined,  milled,  smelted  and  refined  in  Canada. 

Almost  two  million  pounds  of  Inco  Nickel 
will  help  brighten  Canadian  cars  in  1956 

. . .  more  jobs  for  Canadians 

All  the  bright  metal  plating  on  Canadian  cars  is  Inco 
nickel  covered  with  a  thin  layer  of  chromium.  Pro- 
duction of  this  nickel  and  the  plating  of  metal  parts 
for  automobiles  helps  make  jobs  for  thousands  of 
Canadian  men  and  women. 

1.  Nickel-bearing  ores  are  mined  by  Inco  workmen. 
The  ore  is  milled  and  smelted  at  Inco's  plants 
near  Sudbury,  Ontario.  Final  refining  is  done 
at  Inco's  plant  in  Port  Colborne,  Ontario. 
About  18,000  men  and  women  work  for  Inco 
in  Canada. 

2.  Inco  nickel  is  sold  to  Canadian  companies 
where  Canadian  workmen  produce  anodes  for 
the  plating  trade. 

3.  These  anodes  are  used  by  other  companies  for 
electroplating  bumpers,  grilles;  hub  caps  and  other 
bright  metal  parts  for  cars — thus  helping  to  pro- 
vide employment  for  more  Canadians. 

This  year,  almost  2  million  pounds  of  Inco 
nickel  will  be  used  for  plating  on  Canadian  cars. 
In  addition,  Inco  nickel  is  used  by  Canadian  industries 
to  manufacture  hundreds  of  useful  products.

THE  VARSITY.  Thursday.  Sept.  27.  1956 


With  one  rather  mediocre 
tory  under  their  belts,  the  Varsity 
Blues  now  face  what  will  un- 
doubtably  prove  to  be  their  toug- 
est  opposition  of  the  season. 
Triple -threat  quarterback  Bob 
Celeri  leads  his  high-flying  Kitch- 
ener-Waterloo Dutchmen  onto  the 
Varsity  Stadium  gridiron  on  Sat- 
urday afternoon  in  the  Blues' 
home  opener. 

The  Dutchies  gave  indication 
last  night  that  their  much-discuss- 
ed power  is  not  mere  hearsay. 
They  took  over  possession  of  first 

place  in  the  Senior  ORFU  with  a 
resounding  32-7  victory  over 
Balmy  Beach.  Celeri.  who  seems

The  vaunted  Billy  Graham,  al- 
though coming  up  with  an  ex- 
tremely creditable  effort,  gave  up 
the  limelight  spot  in  the  running 
department  to  a  young  American 
named  Homer  Jenkins.  Jenkins, 
who  had  a  pre-season  tryout  with

already  bristling  with  activity. 

Under    the    leadership    of  Mr. 

J.  E.  McCutcheon  the  fall  inter- 
faculty   sports    season    is  fast 

taking  shape. 

Meetings  Planned 
Next  week  two  meetings  of 

prime   importance  are  planned. 

This  Monday  at  5:00  p.m.  an 

organizational   meeting   of  this 

year's  Intramural  Sports  Com- 
mittee will  be  held  in  the  North 

Committee  Room  of , Hart  House. 

Then  next  Thursday  at  1  p.m. 

the  Sports  Committee  will  meet 

to  settle  all  interfaculty  football 

problems.  The  Mulock  Cup  race

Although  all  the  Varsity  fottball 
news  until  now  has  been  emanat- 
ing from  the  Senior  Blue  camp, 
the  Junior  edition  of  the  Blues 
has  been  practising  for  the  past 
ten  days.  Oifficially  known  as  the 
Intermediates,  but  affectionately 
called  the  Baby  Blues,  this  year's 
crew  will  be  under  the  guidance 
of  head  coach  Roy  McMgrtry  and 
backfield  coach  Gerry  Lansky. 

Both  intermediate  coaches  are 
former  Varsity  pigskin  stars.  Mc- 
Murty's  three  year  Varsity  foot- 
ball career  at  tackle  ended  in 
1953.  In  '54  and  '55  he  piloted 
Upper  Canada  College  to  two 
consecutive  Little  Eig  Four  titles 
in  prep  school  competition. 

Lansky's  two  year  stint  with 
the  Blues  was  culminated  last 
year  by  his  being  named  all-star 
intercollegiate    flying   wing.  An 

a  few  fellows  back  from  last 
year's  Blue  squad,  plenty  of  op- 
portunity will  be  afforded  to'  any 
potential  greats.  You  can  pick 
up  all  the  info  from  Miss  K.' 
Boyd  in  the  Intramural  office. 

Out  at  York  Downs  Golf  Club, 
next  Tuesday,  all  golfing  enthu- 
siasts will  have  an  opportunity 
to  prove  your  merit  in  the  Uni- 
versity Championship  qualifying 
round.  To  get  in  on  the  proceed- 
ings, you  should  drop  around  the 
■  Intramural  Office  as  soon  as 
possible.  A  nine  or  better  handi- 
cap is  needed  to  enter  the 
qualifying  rounds.  The  Senior 
Intercollegiate  tourney  will  be 
held  at  Queen's  University  next 
Friday.  So  you  see  time  is 


At  present,  the  Baby  Blues  are 
carrying  48  men,  but  the  surplus 
will  be  trimmed  after  Saturday 
morning's  inter-squad  game  on 
the  Trinity  back  campus.  The 
team  is  lacking  big  men,  w.ith 
small  and  light  personnel  being 
the  rule.  ' 

Last  night  the  team  scrimmaged 
with  the  Senior  Blues  and  ex- 
cept for  a  porous  pass  defence, 
seemed  able  to  keep  up  with  the 
big  team.  The  senior  Blue  coaches 
were  raving  about  the  play  of 
intermediate  155  lb.  guard,  Ted 
Ingson,  a  recruit  from  Baltimore.

great  things  from  Ingson  arid  Ed 
Butryn,  a  fine-looking  tackle  from 
St.  Catharines. 


McMurtry  feels  that  the  Baby 
Blues  jare  especially  thin  at 
tackle  and  he  sees  no  signs  of 
any  coming  down  from  the  Blues. 
Compensating  for  this  defici  ency 
at  tackle  is  a  particularly  strong 
group  of  halves,  headed  by  re- 
turnees Dave  Pinkham  and  Don 
Borthwick.  Five  players,  includ- 
ing Bill  Trimble  of  UTS.  John 
Spence  of  Fort  Credit  and  Al 
Hart,  a  three  year  veteran  at 
OAC,  are  competing  for  the  full- 
back position.

A  LI,  NEW 

A  new  coach  and  an  almost  new  squad  will  greet  the  football  fans 
this  Saturday  afternoon  at  the  Bloor  Street  Bowl  when  Dalt  White 
unveils  his  '56  edition  of  the  University  of  Toronto  Blues.  Missing 
from  this  year's  programme  will  be  names  like  Muntz.  Rogers,  Lan- 
sky and  Cheeseman  while  new  names  like  Reid,  Joynt  and  Russell  will 
echo  through  the  campus  thi*  season, 


The  one  position  the  Blues  won't  be  lacking  in  this  year  is  the 
quarterback  slot.  Back  from  last  year  are  Harry  Wilson  and  Ed 
Skrzypek  and  along  with  Larry  Joynt,  up  from  last  year's  Inter- 
mediates, the  Blues  should  be  loaded  in  the  pivot  slot.  Skrzypek  saw 
most  of  the  action  in  the  Blues  opener  last  Saturday  in  Hamilton 
while  Wilson  was  nursing  a  bad  shoulder  he  picked  up  in  the  Blues 
training  camp  up  at  Lake  Couchiching. 


Back  again  this  year_  to  help  strengthen  a  "Mantzless"  back- 
field  are  Peter  Maik  and  Al  Riva.  Maik  led  the  Blues'  scores  last  sea- 
son with  29  points.  His  total  tally  was  made  up  of  three  field  goals. 
15  converts  and  a  single  touchdown.  As  a  matter  of  fact  three  of  last 
years  top  scorers  have  returned  in  Maik.  Skrypek  and  Burt  Kellock. 

Kellock  along  with  Dick  Risk  and  Gene  Chorostecki  will  give  the 
Blues  a  good  collection  of  pass  receivers  at  the  end  position. 


The  Blues  open  the  intercollegiate  season  a  week  from  Saturday 
at  home  against  last  year's  league  champs,  the  Queen's  University 
Golden  Gaels.  Frank  Tindall's  crew  will  be  without  Gus  Braccla  this 
year.  Gone  also  are  Lou  Bruce  and  Gary  Schreider.  who  have  joined 
Frank  Clair's  Ottawa  Rough  Riders.  But  Queen's  should  still  be  as 
slrong  as  ever. 

The  Blue  games  will  be  broadcast  once  again  this  season  .... 
with  Hal  Kelly  and  Joe  Crysdale  doing  the  play  by  play:  both  home 
and  away  games  will  be  carried  on  CKEY  ....  Final  details  have  not 
been  arranged  but  it  is  expected  that  each  announcer  will  do  the 
play  by  play  alternating  every  quarter  ....  And  there's  also  a  note 
here  for  any  rugger  enthusiasts  ....  The  University  of  Toronto  Rug- 
ger Team  is  playing  a  full  competitive  season  in  the  Ontario  Rugger 
League  ....  The  team  is  also  planning  to  play  intercollegiate  match- 
'es  against  Cornell  and  M.  I.  T  ...  They'll  challenge  the  HtoGlll 
Red  men  again  this  season  ....  The  team  should  hpve  all  but  two  of 
last  years'  men  back  again  this  season  and  along  with  some  piomL;- 

inf!  new  arrivals,  they  should  be  a  tough  squad  to  beat  Stay  tuned 

for  the  latest  development  .... 


I  noticed  where  Sam  Baker,  the  halfback  coach  Bill  Swiacki  said 
wasn't  good  enough  for  the  Argonauts,  only  kicked  four  field  goals  last

from  last  year's  team.  Fullback 
Ralph  Simmons  and  linemen 
Doug  Drew,  Ted  Collins  and 
Bill  Turchan  all  finished  their 
courses.  Lack  of  standing  took 
away  tackle-punter  Ted  Roman 
and  fullback  Dale  Creighton.  The 
latter  has  joined  the  London 
Lords  of  the  Senior  ORFU. 

Fullback  Doug  Aitcheson  is 
still  nursing  a  dislocated  verte- 
bra picked  up  against  McGill 
last  year,  while  tackle  Ray  Kiff. 
a  London  high  school  all -star,  is 
out  with  a  knee  injury  suffered 
while  wrestling. 

Desborough  Out 

The  most  serious  loss  was  that 
of  speedy,  little  NeiJ  Desborough. 
The  160-pound  East  York  gra- 
duate had  his  feet  burned  with 
hot  tar  while  at  work  during  the 
summer,  and  has  missed  most  of 
the  training  session  to  date.  He 
is  expected  to  be  back  for  the 
Mustangs  home  opener  against 
McGill  a  week  from  Saturday. 

As  far  as  this  year's  squad  is 
concerned,  the  line  and  back- 
field  appear  to  be  pretty  well 

Campbell  and  Don  Barton  to  fill 
the  gaps  left  by  Drew,  Collins 
and  Roman. 

All  four  can  play  both  ways, 
and  should  greatly  improve  the 
linebacking  positions,  which  gave 
coach  Metras  many  a  headache 
last  season. 

Si't  At  Quarter 

With  a  slew  of  top  -  notch 
quart  erba-cking  candidates  in 
camp,  and  with  moves  made  to 
strengthen  the  end  positions,  in- 
dications are  that  Western  will 
come  up  with  a  passing  team. 

Young     Art     Turner,     who . 
handled  the  signal-calling  duties  i 
towards-  the  end  of  last  season, 
is  the  number  one  quarterback- 
ing  candidate.  Bruce  Ford  and  j 
Bob  Grace  are  up  from  the  Colts, 
while  freshman  Frank  Consen- 
tlno.  who  hails  from  Hamilton 
Cathedral,    has    been  drawing 
plaudits    from    London  sports-

the  team  at  quarter  throughout 
most  of  1955.  has  been  switched 
to  end.  where  he  battles  Captain

the  most  feared  backs  in  the

12      THE  VARSITY,  Thursday,  Sept.  27.  1956   

SAC  Groups  Gain, 
Varsity  Budget  Cut 

Extra  money  to  most  campus 
activities  and  a  S5.000  reserve 
fund  in  case  Toronto  re-enters  the 
national  student  organization  are 
provisions  of  the  1956-97  budget 
for  the  students  administrative 
council.  Only  a  few  SAC 
activities  —including  The  Varsity 
—  have  been  curbed  by  slashed 

This  year,  with  an  increased 
enrolment,  the  SAC  onticip- 
,-,ted  an  additional  $1,000  in 
fees.  However,  activities  such  as 
Debates  and  the  External  Affairs 
Commission  received  extra  grants 
Of  Up  to  $250.  The  All-Varsity 
Revue  which  has  been  quiescent 
the  last  few  years,  revived  and 
received  $900.  And  although  Tor- 
onto no'  longer  belongs  to  the 
National  Federation  of  Canadian 
University   Students,   nearly  $5,- 

000  was  set  apart  "for  a  national 
reserve."  in. case  Toronto  .rejoins 

This  adequately  took  care  of 
the  SAC's  increased  income.  In 
fact,  it  was  necessary  to  cut  the 
budgets  of  some  SAC  activities. 
The  Varsity  issues  has  been  cut  by 
10  this  year,  bringing  the  total 
issues  published  to  the  lowest 
number  since  1919,  Despile  last 
year's  complaints  of  not  enough 
apace  for  news.  1956-57  will  see 
only  73  issues  of  The  Varsity,  in- 
stead of  the  88  issues  of  1955-56. 
The  number  cf  Varsity  pages  has 
been  cut  by  20%.  Printing  costs 
have  risen  10% :  the  SAC  budget 
decrease  accounts  for  the  .rest, 

As  was  pointed  out  at  the  SAC's 
final  meeting  last  year,  the  SAC 
constitution  requires  that  100  is- 
*uses  of  The  Varsity  be  publish- 

1  H  annually.  By  tacit  consent  of 

the  SAC.  this  provision  has  been 
ignored  —  again- 

Although  SAC  fees  —  and 
printing  costs'  —  have  been 
steadily  rising  for  the  last  few 
years,  The  Varsity's  budge  has 
been  cut  by  $450  in  the  last  two 
years.  One  observer  remarked 
after  last  year's  budget  meeting, 
"The  Varsity  is  no  longer  a  daily. 
In  the  not  too  distant  future,  it 
may  very  well  become  a  weekly."

Femmes  Smash  Male  Barrier 
Join  McGill  Cheerleader  Corps 

Feminists  have  broken  through 
another  male  bastion  at  McGill 
University  —  cheerleading. 

Men  have  led  McGill  rooters 
ever  since  athletics  began  at  the 
university.  Decision  to  bring  girls 
onto  the  field  was  tentatively 
made  by  the  University  Senate 
in  June. 

Plans  were  completed  last  week 
to  add  beauty  to  brawn.  Students, 
alumni  and  the  faculty  have  agit- 
ated for  female  cheerleaders  for 
upwards  of  10  years.  The  move 
brings  McGill  in  line  with  Tor 
onto,  Western.  Queen's,  and  other 
Canadian  universities. 

The  girl  cheerleaders  are  on  a 
,one-year  trial.  IE  the  plan  is  suc- 
cessful, they  will  stay.  They  will 
be  selected  and  their  uniforms  ap- 
proved by  Dr.  M.  V.  Roscoe,  Dean 
of  Women  and  Chairman  of  the 

Women's  Athletic  Board.  Choice 
of  the  girls  will  depend  partially 
on  their  academic  standing.

Vol.  LXXVI-No.  3 

Monday,  October  1,  1956 

SAC  Veep  Asks: 

Where  Do  Girls  Co? 

Construction  of  a  new  Women's  Building  on  Philosopher's 
Walk  was  supposed  to  start  this  summer.  No  work  has 
come  yet.  SAC  Vice-President  Flo  Middleton  writes  of  the 
problems  facing  women  on  campus  interested  in  sports. 

What  has  happened  to  the  Wo- 
men's Building?  If  you  ask  me  I 
would  say  it  looks  as  though  it 
has  been  buried,  lost  and  for- 
gotten in  the  cellars  of  Simcoe 
Hall.  It  is  indeed  pleasant  to 
think  that  it  is  now  1956  and  that 
a  Women's  Building  was  promised 
to  us  in  1925.  How  is  that  for  pro- 

While  it  is  fine  to  say  that  the 
Women's  Building  has  top  prior- 
ity with  the  Building  Committee, 
we  cannot  help  feeling  sorry  for 
the  other  faculties  and  schools 
that  desire  new  accommodation. 
At  this  rate  of  speed,  Toronto's 
facilities  will  still  be  the  same 
the  day  my  great  grand  daughter 
registers.  Unless  some  construc- 
tive plans  are  forthcoming  within 
the  next  month,  this  can  be  taken 
only  as  a  breach  of  faith. 
!  In  the  meantime,  the  women  of 
this  University  must  play  sports 
and  enter  into  activities  in  con- 
ditions that  no  child  attending 
public  school  would.  Freshics 
coming  from  the  high  schools  this 
year  (as  in  other  years)  must  have 
been  impressed  with  a  swimming 
pool  the  size  of  a  foot  bath  and  a 
gymnasium  the  size  of  the  average 
living  room.  While  this  is  a  un- 
iversity with  an  enrolment  of  over 
10,000  the  average  city  or  district 
high  with  500  pupils  has  a  re- 
gulation swimming  pool  and  at 
least  one  excellent  gym  floor. 
Where  is  the  logic? 

In  order  to  maintain  our  inter- 
faculty  competitions,  we  are  forc- 
ed to  use  the  OCE  gym  as  well  as 

the  UTS  pool.  If  the  University 
authorities  can  provide  the  boys 
afl  UTS  with  a  swimming  pool 
and  a  gymnasium  there  is  no  rea- 
son why  the  girls  of  this  Univer- 
sity should  be  forced  off  campus 
and  be  given  so  little  consider- 
ation. Should  the  women  of  this 
University  be  given  less  thought 
than  several  hundred  little  high 
school  boys? 

The  lack  of  facilities  for  women 
is  most  glaring  in  the  School  of 
Physical  and  Health  Education, 
For  the  PHE  gals,  it  is 'a  run  to 
Yonge  Street  to  the  Eaton's  Girls' 
Club  to  find  a  gym.  In  such  a 
state,  how  can  we  expect  con- 
tinuity in  the  staff  when  every 
.other  University  on  the  continent 
can  provide  decent  working  con- 
di  lions'* 

The  sod  for  the  proposed  Wo- 
men's Building  was  to  be  turned 
this  summer.  As  anyone  can  see 
grass  is  still  intact  behind  Fal- 
coner Hall  and  will  no  doubt  re- 
main so.  But  We  can  still  ask— 
What  has  happened  to  the  Wo- 
men's Building? 

Regional  NFCUS  Meeting 
Wants  Simplified  Set-up 

Understanding  and  represent- 
ation should  be  the  basic  aims  of 
any  nation  federation,  a  regional 
conference  of  NFCUS  delegates 
agreed  here  Saturday. 

Seven  Ontario  universities  sent 
representatives  to  the  Hart  House 

The  conference  was  arranged  to 
allow  Ontario  delegates  to  strike 
a  common  note  before  the  nation- 
al convention  in  Montreal  next 

The  Ontario  universities  drew 
up  a  recommendation  to  be  for- 
warded to  the  national  meeting. 
The  recommendation  named  "thfe 
promotion  of  better  understand- 
ing among  Canadian  students,  the 
promotion  of  a  greater  degree  of 
co-operation   and  correlation 

among  Canadian  universities;  the 
provision  of  national  represent- 
ation abroad"  as  the  most  import- 
ant objectives  of  the  federation. 

The  points  named  in  the  recom 
mendation  are  a  parallel  to  the 
opening  paragraphs  of  the  pre- 
amble to  the  NFCUS  constitution 

The  conference  program,  which 
was  drawn  up  by  Toronto  de- 
legates, is  described  as  "decen- 
tralized, simplified  and  re-em 
phasised."  policy  for  NFCUS. 

Ontario  president  Gary  Keyes 
(I  Osgoode)  said  the  conference 
would  be  invaluable  to  delegates 
because  frequently  people  go  to 
national  meetings  "uninformed 
and  misinformed." 

"Saturday's  caucus  was  not  in- 
tended as  a  silent  assailment  to

Award  Imperial  Oil  Scholarships 

Varsity  Staff  Rock  and  Roller 

"Gee,  wasn't  it  the  greatest?" 
■gasped  a  representative  of  young 
Canada  Saturday  night  as  I  left 
Maple  Leaf  Gardens  after  an  orgy 
in  Rock  'n  Roll.  "Yeah"  breathed 
her  gasping  confrere,  'it  sure  was 
cool  and  crazy." 

Perhaps  that  short  repartee  best 
typified  the  16,000  movers  and 
groovers,  who  shook,  rattled,  rolled 
and  did  just  about  everything  else 
to  the  frantic  bellowing  of  the 
guest  artists.  Most  of  the  exhibition 
took  place  in  the  stands  —  not  on 
the  stage. 

First  half  of  the  show  was  fairly 
calm.  Naturally,  there  was  the 
usual  shouting  and  clapping  and 
shrieking  by  the  tight-sweatered  14 
year  old  pretties  who  just  couldn't 
control  themselves  when  the  bass 
in  some  of  the  quartets  moaned 
"Oh  babe,"  but  the  action  was 
fairly  well  confined. 

As  a  matter  of  fact,  the  crowd 
was  so  well  behaved,  that  when 
The  Hound-dog,  a  goateed  rock 
and  roll  disc  jockey  from  Buffalo 
made  his  appearance,  he  said,  "I 
want  to  thank  all  you  for  turning 
out.  I  think  it's  real  crazy." 
"Hurrah"  blurted  the  crowd. 
"Thanks  for   behaving."  "Boo!" 


graduates  have  been  awarded  the

They  are  always  given  to  child-

Eleanor  A.  Cobledick  of  Lea-

both  entering  the  University  of 
Toronto  and  will  study  Social 
and  Philosophical  Studies  and- 
Medicine  respectively. 

Teen-age  Rockers  All  Go  Crazy 

Female  teenage  coolers  led  their 
male  counterparts  on,  turning  the 
arena  into  a  rock  and  roll  dance 

Once  again  the  police  went  to 
work,  with  a  little  more  trouble 
than  before. 

Energetic  hoppers  took  exception 
to  the  action  of  Toronto's  finest 
and  showed  their  anger  by  swing- 
ing their  fists. 

One  youth  was  escorted  from  the 
gardens  by  five  policemen.  While 
this  action  was  taking  place  the 
Platters  kept  up  their  plaintive 
melody.    No  one  in  the  Gardens 

They  Think  Haley's  One  Fine  Daisy 

watched  the  groups;  they  all 
seemed  to  be  booing  our  men  in 

That's  when  the  Platters  took 
the  hint  and  stopped  singing,  while 
the  master  of  ceremonies  began  to 
beg  the  youths  to  behave.  A  hefty 
round  of  boos. 

With  the  appearance  of  Bill 
Haley  and  his  Comets,  ushers  and 
officials  saw  the  writing  on  the 
wall  and  let  the  teenagers  jump, 
dance  and  clap  themselves  into 

And  another  evening  of  good, 
clean,  teenage  fun  was  rocked  to 
an  end.  «» 

President  Smith's 
New  Address 

President  Sidney  Smith  has 
moved  from  his  home  on  Queens 
Park  Crescent  to  Rosedale. 

Shortage  of  space  on  the  campus 
made  the  move  necessary  at  the 
end  of  August.  Two  Arts  depart- 
ments moved  to  his  former  home 
at  the  northern  end  of  the  cam- 

The  two  departments  are  Art 
and  Archeology  and  East  Asiatic 
Studies  which  were  respectively 
at  5  Wilcox  and  split  between  the 
Museum  and  University  College.  > 

President  Smith  now  lives  at 
Hyland  Crescent. 

cried  the  adolescents. 

After  that  stirring  speech,  order 
was  a  thing  of  the  .past.  Matters 
became  progressively  worse. 

First  sign  of  real  trouble  came 
when  Clyde  MacFater  started  to 
slip  and  slide  to  the  familiar 
strains  of  his  hit  recording,  "Money 
Honey."  Whenever  MacFater  cried 
"money  honey."  the  crowd  yelled 
back.  His  tenure  on  stage  reached 
a  climax  when  he  moaned  "Fever." 

The  nervous  cats  just  couldn't 
restrain  themselves,  they  flipped 
their  wigs  and  "began  a  slippin' 
and  a  slidin'  to  the  haunting  melody. 
The  lights  showed  hordes  of  busy 
policemen  at  work  breaking  up 
throngs  of  nervously  dancing  and 
jumping  youngsters.  The  cats  fin- 
ally cooled  down  when  MacFater 
left  the  stage. 

But  the  lull  didn't  last  long. 

The  Platters,  one  of  the  show's 
headliners,  broke  into  "Tweedle 
Dee  Dee."  Complete  pandemonium!

4      THE  VARSITY,  Slonday,  October  1,  1956 

a  gleam  in  the  eye 

l;ast  year,  in  some  of  this  university's  basement 
rooms  where  intellectuals  plot  the  downfall  of  Joe 
Colleges  and  engineers,  there  was  talk  of  a  campus- 
wide  literary  magazine. 

No  specific  scheme  was  set  forth,  though  sev- 
eral possibilities  were  suggested.  The  magazine  could 
either'replace  or  supplement  the  four  arts'  college  lit- 
erary publications  —  or  better  still,  supplant  one  issue 
of  each  of  them. 

The  editorial  board  would  be  comprised  of  edi- 
tors from  each  of  the  Strand,  Undergrad,  Review  and 
Gryphon,  with  representatives  from  professional  fac- 
ulties having  no  publications  of  their  own. 

Costs  could  be  met  by  selling  the  magazine  — 
off  campus  as  well  as  to  students  —  with  contribu- 
tions from  the  colleges  and,  if  it  could  not  be  avoid- 
ed, by  selling  advertising. 

Our  endorsement  of  such  a  proposal  is  not  in- 
tended as  a  sneer  at  the  college  publications.  They 
fulfill  'a  specific  need  by  making  a  public  medium 
available  to  all  students  —  not  just  the  really  talented. 

But  in  every  college  and  in  many  of  the  faculties 
there  are  nuclei  of  gifted  writers  whose  work  stands 
out  over  the  general  run  of  self-conscious  undergrad- 
uate drivel.  These  writers  deserve  a  medium  of  their 

In  Canada,  thus  far,  there  is  none  for  them.  Very 
shortly,  if  advance  publicity  is  lived,  up  to,  an  ambi- 
tious group  will  bring  to  the  public  the  first  issue  of 
The  Tamarack  Review  —  aimed  at  being  a  Canadian 
intellectual  magazine.  We  wish  them  luck:  but  it  is 
evident  that  there  will  be  little  room  in  their  under- 
taking for  the  work  of  even  the  most  talented  and 
promising  undergraduate'. 

But  between  the  extremes  of  college  magazine 
and  high-brow  periodical,  there  should  be  a  Univer- 
sity of  Toronto  publication  carrying  the  best  writing 
of  our  undergraduates. 

We  deplore  putting  so  radical  an  idea  through  the 
torturous  machinery  of  our  Student's  Administrative 

Perhaps  the  college  editors,  or  some  of  the  other 
people  who  have  talked  about  publishing  a  univer- 
sity magazine  could  get  together  on  their  own.  Per- 
haps they  have  already. 

We  hope  so. 

and  a  shrug  of 

the  shoulders 

Last  weekend,  a  number  of  People  Who  Do 
Things  gathered  in  Hart  House  to  discuss  Ontario's 
point  of  view  for  the  National  Confederation  of  Cana- 
dian University  Students'  annual  conference  in  Mont- 
real next  week. 

A  Toronto  plan  for  simplification  of  NFCUS  ma- 
chinery was  presented,  discussed  and  generally  ap- 
proved. In  Montreal,  this  plan  will  be  presented  by 
one  of  the  Ontario  delegations.  In  fact,  however, 
they  are  your  proposals,  for  the  persons  who  wrote 
>hem  represent  you. 

Today,  and  later  in  the  week,  The  Varsity  will 
publish  the  reasoning  behind  them,  and  the  propos- 
als themselves,  in  as  short  and  interesting  a  form  as 

It  would  help  if  you  found  out  what  they  were.

•  What  Is  It? 

•  Should  It  Be  ?  .  . 

•  Or  Shouldn't  It? 

Here  we  go  again!  NFCUS  is  in  the  news  this  week.  Saturday 
morning,  Ontario  delegates  met  w  Toronto  to  decide  onto-  common 
program.  Next  week,  their  ideas,  among  others,  will  be  presented  to 
the  Twentieth  annual  National  conference  in  Montreal.  Below,  Vdr-:'. 
sity  managing  editor  Michael  Cassidy  briefly  outlines  the  organiza- 
tion's history,  pointing  out  a  few  of  its  accomplishments  and  plans. 

Every  year  in  October  and 
March  a  handful  of  University  of 
Toronto  students  headline  their 
debate  about  the  National  Fed- 
eration of  Canadian  University 
Students  —  why  to  stay  in  or  get 
out,  what  advantages  it  offers, 
whether  it  should  try  to  give 
students  cash,  benefits  or  ideals.  - 
More  important  for  freshmen 
and  the  95  per  cent  of  returning 
students  who  pay  50  cents  each 
year  for  the  federation  is:  what 
is  it?  (This  year,  Toronto's  50 
cents  per  student  is  going  to  a 
National  Affairs  Fund,  in  the 
Students'  Council  budget,  which 
will  be  used  for  seminars  and 
national  conferences  if  Toronto 
doesn't  go  back  to  the  NFCUS 
fold).  ; 

The  federation  is  a  union  of 
colleges  and  universities  from 
Newfoundland  to  Alberta.'  'They 
range  in  size  from  McGill  to 
Waterloo  College  in  Kitchener. 
There  are  about  30,000  students 

in  the  federation  now,  of  Canada's 
66,000  students. 

The  organization  was  -founded 
in  Ontario  and  Quebec  in' 1927, 
and  soon  spread  throughCanada. 
Up  to  the  war,  it  limped  along, 
then  died  out  until  1948.  Before 
the  war,  NFCUS  pressure  helped 
the  campaign  to  lower  railway 
fares  for  students  living  away 
from  college. 

The  original  1927  purposes  were 
"to  promote  ...  a  better  under- 
standing among  all  Canadian  stu- 
dents, a  -greater  degree  of  co- 
operation and  correlation  among 
all  Canadian  Universities  —  for 
effective  promotion  of  students' 
interests  and  to  provide  a  means 
of  developing  international  rela- 
tionships with  student  groups  in 
other  countries." 

Since  the  war  the  federation 
has  tried  to  add, cash  benefits  to 
these  ideals.  These  include  low- 
cost  life-insurance,  slated  for  this

count service,  which  was  set  up 
in  a  few  centres  last  year.  It 
■  also  sponsors  cultural  contests  in 
short  stories,  art  and  photography 
and  has  tried  to  act  as  students' 
lobby  in  Ottawa. 

The  national  president  of  the 
federation  was '  a  student  each 
year  to  1952.  Fees  per  student 
were  20  cents.  Projects  were 
delegated  to  local  campus  com- 
mittees by  mandate,  by  the  na- 
tional conference  in  October. 

That  year,  the  national  office 
was  set  up  at  Carleton  College  in 
Ottawa.  Since,  "administrative 
costs."  which  include  national  of- 
fice expense,  national  conference 
and  grants  to  NFCUS  regions, 
have  soared  and  stayed  at  ^be- 
tween 80  and  90  per  cent  of  the 
federation's  budget.  The  member- 
ship of  the  federation,  and  its 
budget,  has  fluctuated  unpredict- 
ably as  individual  colleges  have 
quit  and  re-entered  the  federa-

Gerry  Helleiner,  national  affairs  chairman  of  Toro?ito's  Students' 
Administrative  Council,  and  a  member  of  our  delegation  to-  the 
national  NFCUS  conference  next  week  in  Montr  ea\,^outlines a  few 
of  the  arguments  for  and  against  the  Existence  of  slich  d  federation. 

The  National  Federation  of  Canadian  Univer- 
sity Students  was  created  by  the  individual  stu- 
dent councils  of  Canada  to  meet  an  urgent  need. 
It  is  n(?t,  as  some  of  its  opponents  today  imply, 
an  alien  organization  against  which  the  SAC 
and  other  student  councils  must  fight.  The  ex- 
istence of  a  national  federation  is  still  justified 
by  the  original  purposes; 

(1)  A  national  federation  is  essential  in  order 
that  the  vast  number  of  Canadian  students 
may  be  represented.  Such  an  organization  is 
the  only  one  capable  of  representing  Canadian 
students'  interests  to  the  government  and  is 
the  only  one  capable  of  appointing  Canadian 
delegates  to  international  student  conferences. 

(2)  A  national  federation  promotes  a  better 
understanding  among  Canadian  students  by 
enabling  student  leaders  to  come  together 
and  discuss  common  problems  at  a  national 


(3)  A  national  federation,  through  its  central 
office  achieves  cooperation  among  all  Cana- 
dian universities  in  any  and'  all  matters  of 
student  concern  which  may  arise. 

A  national  federation,  then,  is  desirable.  Is 
NFCUS  the  federation  we  want? 

NFCUS  provides  all  the  advantages  of  a 
federation  listed  above  and  has  tried  to  provide 
more.  Among  its  added  activities  are: 

1 1 )  procuring  of  very  low  life  insurance  rates 
for  Canadian  students 

(2)  running  of  a  student  discount  service  on 
all  manner  of  goods  and  services.  (Admittedly, 
this  plan  was  not  always  successful,  but  the 
point  is,  the  plan  evolved  from  a  discussion 
among  student  leaders  of  common  problems.) 

(3)  sponsorship  of  cultural  activities  through 
national  art  contests, 

(4)  sponsorship  of  interregional  students  ex- 

15)  sponsorship  of  regional  and  intenegional 


(6j  sponsorship  of  a  national  blood  campaign 
—the  Corpuscle  Cup  competition. 

(7)  operation  of  a  Travel  Service  for  Cana- 
dian students. 

NFCUS  has  long  experience  in  its  field  and 
is  constantly  improving  on  its  earlier  mistakes. 
It  has  a  long  list  of  earlier  successes,  e.g.  es- 
tablishment of  Canadian  University  Press,  estab- 
lishment of  a  national  debating  association, 
reduction  of  railway  fare  for  students,  gaining 
of  $190,000  worth  of  government  scholarships, 
etc.  What  could  be  achieved  by  breaking  down 
the  entire  structure  which  we  already  have  in 
order  to  start  at  the  bottom  again?  There  is 
room  for  improvement  in  NFCUS  and  all  pos- 
sible effort  should  be  devoted  to  this  end  rather 
than  in  pulling  down  what  NFCUS  already  has. 
NFCUS  must  stay. 



Your  opinions  are  surely  at  least  as  important 
as  those  of  the  editor  of  this  paper.  Let's  hear 
them.  The  Varsity's  editorial  page  is  open  to 
letters  concerning  anything  of  general  interest 
to  the  student.  Only  rule  for  printing  is  that 
they  must  be  signed,  short  and  legible. 

.  Something  of  an  argument  could  be  made  to 
the  effect  that  a  national  federation  of  students 
in  a  country  such  as  Canada  is  quite  impossible 
and  that  those  who  advocate  such  a  federation 
are  overidealistic.  But  granting  a  certain  amount 
of  idealism  and  hope  it  must  be  agreed  that  a 
national  federation  of  students  is  desirable. 

Is  NFCUS  the  federation  we  want? 
NFCUS  has  an  impressive  list  of  failures  and 

(1)  JNJf'CUS  claims  ^to  represent  Canadian 
students  whereas  membersliip  in  the  federa- 
tion now  comprises  less  than  naif  of  Canada's 
student  population. 

(2)  A  federation  of  this  sort  must  benefit 
its  individual  members  and  in  so  doing  make 
them  aware  of  their  membership.  NFCUS  has 
constantly  failed  in  this  respect.  The  average 
student  is  either  unaware  of  his  membership 
or  openly  resents  the  fact  that  he  pays  a 
compulsory  fee  towards  NFCUS. 

(3)  NFCT'S  chums  to  be  promoting  coopera- 
tion among  Canadian  universities.  The  federa- 
tion's instability — its  constantly  entering  and 
withdrawing  members  universities — is  evidence 
of  its  lack  of  success  in  this  field. 

(4)  the  national  conference  rather  than  a 
meeting  ground  for  discussion  of  common 
student  problems,  is  a  5-day'  period  of  constant 
bickering  and  debate  over  matters  of  adminis- 
trative procedure.  This  year  is  the  first  year 
that  any  attempt  has  been  made  to  allow  for 
intellectual  discussion  and  what  has  been 
allowed  is  much  too  little. 

Further,  the  record  of  NFCUS  on  its  other 
activities  is  decidedly  questionable: 

11)  approximately  75%  of  the  NFCUS  budget 
goes  toward  administration,  leaving  only  25% 
which  can  be  used  for  the  benefit  of  the 

12)  there  was  never  sufficient  demand  for  the 
life  insurance  scheme  to  justify  its  establish- 
ment. While  the  plan  may  be  sound,  few  will 
avail  themselves  of  it  and  it  can  only  be  re- 
garded as  another  attempt  to  justify  the  ex- 
istence of  NFCUS. 

(3)  the  cultural  contests  have  been  inefficient- 
ly run  and  they"  cater  to  only  a  small  percent- 
age of  the  students. 

( 4 )  the  student  discount  service  flopped  on 
this  campus. 

1 5)  interregional  students  exchange  is  not 
feasible  for  Toronto  students  since  Toronto's 
academic  standards  are  so  much  higher  than 
those  in  other  regions. 

(6)  the  Travel  Service  can  exist  and  in  fact 
will  exist  next  year  without  NFCUS  sponsor- 

(7)  we  have  yet  to  see  the  interregional  semi- 

There  has  been  continued  argument  over 
NFCUS  for  the  past  five  years,  which  has  been 
met  witli  repeated  promises  to  improve,  none 
of  which  have  been  met.  Today  NFCUS  no  longer 
represents  the  majority  of  Canadian  students 
,  and  has  become  completely  unstable  with  uni- 
versities dropping  out  at  the  slightest  provoca- 
tion. Too  much  time  is  spent  defending  NFCUS 
and  not  enough  constructively  making  some- 
thing of  the  idea  of  a  federation.  NFCUS  must

Although  the  tenor  voices  in 
this  chorus  tend  to  be  strident, 
as  they  endeavour  to  comperr- 
sate  for  the  absence  of  sopranos, 
there  are  fine  voices  in  the 
chorus.  It  was  an  unusual  ex- 
perience to  hear  N.  Reva,  basso 
profundo,  drop  to  pedal  notes. 

Not  all  their  solos  were  con- 
ceived as  if  the  human  wind  in- 
strument were  a  trumpet  or  a 
keyed  trombone.  W.  Lasche- 
witsch  gave  a  pleasing  lyric 
treatment  of  the  elegaic  Those 
Evening  Bells. 

His  emission  revealed  more 
warmth  and  virtuosity  than  did

voice  is  shockingly  like  that  of

that  Freshmen  will  be  especially 
welcome.  The  ability  to  read

The  former  Toronto  Conser-

English  musician  Mr.  Sidney 

In  London,  the  young  Can-

I  felt  sorry  for  this  troup  from 
Rochester,  New  York  —  there  is 
,  nothing  more  depressing  than 
playing  to  an  empty  house. 
Nevertheless  it  showed  great 
spirit  and  youthful  vitality  in 
spite  of  the  obstacle  it  faced. 
This  obstacle  was  Eaton  Aud- 

beautitul  architecturally  but  dis- 
couraging theatrically.  The  cur- 
tain is  so  slow  that  scenery 
changes  had  to  be  done  before- 
the  audience.  The  acoustics  also 
leave  much  to  be  desired. 

In  spite  of  this  the  show  whs 
thoroughly  delightful.  The  leads 
sang  and  acted  well,  and  I  was 
particularly  pleased  with  the 
performance  of  John  Peck,  the* 
male  lead. 

The  music  is  light  and  spirited, 
and  what  the  story  lacks  in 
originality  the  cast  make  up  in 
vitality.  The  plot,  in  point,  is  as 
simple  as  the  one  back-drop 
they  used  —  the  front  of  a  so- 
cial hall  —  for  this  is  a  summer

Film  Society 

The  University  of  Toronto  Film 
Society's  series  of  ten  programs 
this  year  includes  two  almost  un- 
obtainable film  classics  —  t-o 
Jour  se  Leve.  shortly  to  be  with- 
drawn for  a  remake,  and  Rene 
Clair's  Sous  les  Toits  de  Paris, 
which  is  being  shown  in  Canada 
for  the  first  time  since  its  original 
release  in  1930. 

The  feature  films  have  been 
chosen  from  five  different 
countries  and  range  from  the 
real>m  uf  The  Open  City  to  the 
fantasy  of  Jean  Cocteau's  Orphec. 
Each  program  will  also  include- 
a  varied  selection  of  shorts,  in- 
cluding experimental  films,  Chap- 
lin comedies  and  UPA  cartoon!::. 
There  will  also  be  special  show- 
ings during  the  season. 

The  Film  Society  has  been  one 
of  the  most  popular  campus  or- 
ganisations ever,  since  It  was  first 
organised  in  1948.  In  addition  to 
its  regular  showings,  it  provides 
a  chance  for  its  members  to  par- 
ticipate in  a  production  group. 
Two  of  this  group's  productions 
have  won  special  mention  in  the 
Canadian  Film  Awards,  one  — 
Movie  Manners  —  in  1955,  the 
other  in  1950. 

Showings  take  place  every 
.second  Sunday  afternoon  at  the 
Museum  Theatre,  commencing 
October  14.  Memberships  cost 
four  dollars  and  are  obtainable 
at  the  SAC  office.  UC  rotunda, 
and  the  Engineering  Store.

film  adaption  take  such  advan- 
tage camera-wise  of  the  leit- 
motif potential  in  a  piece  of 

Anna  is  the  poor  daughter  of 
a  drunken  musician;  the  day  a 
lawyer  arrives  to  foreclose  the 
mortgage  on  the  family  home, 


her  two  barefoot  brothers 
watch  silently  from  a  corner 
of  the  room  clutching  a  bamboo 
bird  cage.  Anna  is  trapped  in 
these  environs,  but  no  more  so 
than  she  is  later  on  in  the 
tale,  having"  married  a  51-year- 
old  government  official  in  order 
to  escape  poverty. 

As  the  young  and  beautiful 
wife  of  a  fat  beaurocrat  who

they  roll  all  right,  but  they  don't  roll  OVER." 

it's  not  surprising  that  her  fa- 
vorite pose  during  her  early 
married  life  is  leaning  on  the 
cage  of  a  parlor  pet  mink, 
which  races  round  and  round  on 
a  minature  merry-go-round.

Hamlet  wove  rhythmically 
around  ropes  and  masts,  perio- 
dically flinging  himself  down  on 
the  deck  in  agony.  The  climax 
was  reached  when  he  suddenly 
turned  his  back  to  the  audience, 
rushed  to  the  starboard  side, 
and  shouted  hollowly:  ALONE, 
ALONNnnne.  Apart  from  these 
severe  melodramatic  spasms 
the  production  had  some  merit.

medy were  performed  racily  by 
three  comparative  newcomers 
to  the  screen  and  the  volatile 
Don  Harron.  Harron  played 
Darcy  and  Mirabelle  with  envi- 
able skill  —  just  the  right 
amount  of  injured  pride  and 
arrogance  came  darting 
through  his  polished  delivery.

Ruggerites  Beaten 

The  University  of  Toronto  Rug- 
ger Blues  opened  their  season  Sat- 
urday afternoon  on  the  back  cam- 
pus. Unfortunately  the  opener  was 
rather  an  inauspicious  one  as  the 
Blues  bowed  to  Scottish  I  by  the 
score  of  14-3. 

The  conditions  suited  a  fast  open 
game  and  both  teams  settled  down 
to  a  closely  contested  first  half. 
The  Blues  opened  the  scoring  on  a 
kick  by  Jacques  after  the  Scots 
had  been  penalized  on  their  own 
25.  Shortly  before  half-time  the 
Scots'  winger,  Lee  went  over  for  an 
unconverted  try,  leaving  the  score 
3-3  at  the  interval.  At  this  time 
the  Blues  suffered  a  setback  when 
their  dependable  full-back  Roger 
Hirst  had  to  leave  the  field  with  a 
broken  ankle. 

With  a  weakened  side,  the  Blues 
lost' ground  in  the  second  half  and 
Ian  Nicol  picked  up  a  loose  ball

Dropping  8-7  Exhibition  Thriller 


It  is  not  very  often  that  a  football  team  can  lose  a  game  and  be  happy  about  it  after- 
vards.  But  such  was  the  case  on  Saturday  afternoon.  Varsity  Blues  lost  an  8-7  exhibition 
Kittle  to  Kitchener-Waterloo  Dutchmen,  but  in  going  down  to  defeat  they  won  the  respect 
)f  4.500  spectators,  including  Frank  Tindall  and  his  Queen's  Golden  Gaels. 

The  Senior  ORFU  league-leaders  were  21. point  favourites  going  into  Xhe  game,  and 
;hey  were  a  stunned  group  of  football  players  coming  out.  For  a  raw  and  untested  Var- 
sity team  had  matched  them  yard  for  yard  and  very  nearly  point  for  point. 

For  the  Blues,  losers  on  the  scoreboard  but  victorious  in  spirit,  it  was  a  great  team  ef- 
Mfe.  No  one  player  stood  out  above  another  —  each  played  his  part  and  played  it  well. 

93esides  proving  a  great  morale 




Sports  Editor 

BSer  to  the  Blues  and  their 
Hfcng  staff,  the  game  proved 
Smething  else  as  well.  The 
B8ty  line  was  a  big  question 
before  the  game,  but  the 
j^ft  wall  proved  through  60 
jffifttes  of  football  that  it  will 
Sfflits  own  against  the  best  in 
le  Intercollegiate  Union  this  fall, 
lonstantly  breaking  through  on 
lutchie  quarterback  Bob  Celeri 
3  rush  him  on  pass  attempts,  the 
yi3S  threw  Harvey  Johnsons 
L-iple -threat  pivotman  for  a  total 
oss  of  62  yards  on  pass  attempts 
uring  the  game. 

Despite  the  continual  rushing, 
Celeri  managed  to  complete  19  of 
he  31  passes  he  tried,  and  the 
tonn  of  aerials  gave  Coach  Dalt 
Vhite  and  excellent  opportunity 
o  study  his  pass  defense  set-up. 
diich  performed  very  capably 
mder  the  circumstances. 


The  Blues  scored  their  points  on 
iolid  football  and  lost  the  game  on 
W  breaks.  They  marched  72 
,-ard;  in  ten  plays  for  their  lone^ 
najor.  Captain  Ed  Skrzypek  start- 
id  the  march  with  a  26-yard  pass 

to  end  Burt  Kellock.  Skrzypek 
capped  the  march  with  a  bullet 
pass  to  Ross  Woods  in  the  end 
zone  for  the  touchdown.  Peter 
Maik  converted  to  give  Varsity  a 
7-0  first-quarter  lead. 

Celeri  put  Kitchener  on  the 
scoresheet  early  in  the  second 
frame  with  a  53-yard  sipgle. 

The  score  remained  that  way 
until  midway  through  the  third 
quarter.  With  the  Dutchies  hold- 
ing the  ball  on  the  Varsity  24, 
Celeri  tossed  a  long  pass  aimed  at 
Billy  Graham  in  the  end  zone. 
Dave  Creswell,  covering  Graham 
on  the  play,  was  called  by  Re- 
feree Fred  Sgambati  for  illegal 
interference,  and  the  call  gave 
K-W  a  first  down  oh  the  Blues' 
ten.  On  the  next  play,  a  Celeri-to- 
Graham  pass  produced  the  touch- 

Graham  'converted  his  score, 
with  the  point-after  eventually 
being  the  visitor's  margin  of  vic- 


Although  Varsity  played  a  gooc 
all-round  game,  it  was  then."  de- 
fense that  kept  "the  score;  so  close. 
Twice  during  the  game  they  held 

solid  at  their  own  goal-line  when 
the  Dutchmen  threatened. 

Offensively,  the  Blues  split  their 
yardage  gained  fairly  evenly 
between  passing  and  running 
gains.  Quarterbacks  Skrzypek, 
Larry  Joynt  and  Harry  Wilson 
only  completed  nine  of  the  23 
they  attempted  but  they  were 
good  for  164  yards.  Skrzypek 
fared- the  best  of  the  three,  hitting 
for  seven  of  15. 

Although  it  was  difficult  to  pick 
an  individual  standout  for  the 
Blues,  the  'honor  would  pretty 
well  have  to  go  to  the  Varsity 
captain.  As  well  as  guiding  the 
Blues'  march  to  pay  dirt  in  the 
first  quarter,  he  led  the  team  well 
when  on  the  field, 

McGill  toped  McMaster  47-6  in

Varsity  Blues  accomplished  a  good  deal  in  two  hours  on  Saturday 
afternoon.  They:  (1)  proved  to  a  great  many  people  that  they  will 
be  right  in  the  thick  of  the  fight  for  the  Yates  Cup  this  fall 

(2)  made  three  Coaches  and  one  Athletic  Director  very  happy 

(3)  shot  a  scare  into  the  Queen's  Golden  Gaels  (4)  played  them- 
selves a  whale  of  a  ball  game. 

Definite  underdogs  before  the  game  got  underway,  the  Blues 
Were  full  of  surprises.  About  the  only  person  who  wasn't 
shocked  was  Onc-Eytap  Benny.  He  figured  our  boys  might  evrn 
pull  through  with  a  14-0  will,  but  then,  Benny  pretty  well  lias  to 
say  things  like  that  or  his  four  year  stay  at  our  institution 
might  come  to  »  sudden  halt. 

Coach  Tindall  and  his  Tricolor  seemed  a  bit  upset  at  the  outcome. 
Running  through  their  minds  was.  perhaps,  the  fact  that  Varsity 
had  very  nearly  beaten  Kitchener,  Kitchener  had  swamped  Balmy 
Beach  32-7,  and  the  Beaches  had  conducted  a  25-0  massacre  of  the 
Gaels  right  up  in  pen-town. 

Tindall  himself  might  have  had  his  own  guilty  conscience.  In 
training- camp   reports   out   of   Kingston,   Tindall   seemed  to 
spend  his  time  bemoaning  the  fact  that  he  would  lose  rnosl  "1 
his  team  at  the  end  of  the  season  just  coming  up. 
He  skipped  prognostications  about  his  success  chances  this  year 
for  one  of  two  reasons.  Either  he  was  extremely  confident,  or  he 
didn't  want  to  make  his  players  over-confident.  But  the  headline 
on  top  of  the  newspaper  story  tells  the  tale— "Title  Seems  Secure 
at  Queen's." 

The  two  other  Intercollegiate  teams  came  up  with  wins 
over  the  weekend.  Western  trounced  a  hapless  OAC  squad 
44-1,  while  Harry  Sullivan's  McGill  Redmen  walloped  baekfie Id- 
less  McMaster,  41-6. 

League  action  gets  underway  on  Saturday  of  this  week,  with 
Queen's  making  another  visit  to  Varsity  Stadium,  this  time  sport- 
ing their  uniforms,  and  McGill  duelling  with  the  Mustangs  down 
at  J.  W.  Little  Stadium  in  London. 

Yes,  sir,  it's  going  to  be  an  interesting  season. 


We  had  our  first  peep  at  the  new  Stadium  lights  in  action  last 
week  and  the  much-publicized  system  certainly  lives  up  to  its 
publicity  reports.  At  the  cost  of  $140,000  the  standards  were  sunk 
in  20  feet  of  concrete.  The  cost  of  equipping  the  passageways  under 
the  stands  with  sufficient  light  for.  night  games  was  $,,000  alone. 
The  crane  that  installed  the  poles  was  too  short  and  an  addition 
had  to  be  made  to  it  before  the  five-ton  skyscrapers  could  be 
dropped  into  place. 

It  should  be  interesting  when  the  Gaels  and  their  rabid 

lowers  visit  US  next  week.  Couldn't  you  see  one  of  the  light 

standards  toddling  off  down  Bloor  Street  in  a  repitltion  of  the, 

goal-post  episode? 

Chances  are  that  efforts  to  do  this  won't  be  successful,  but 
knowing  Queen's,  they'll  sure  give  it  a  try. 

It's  always  easy  to  second-guess  professional  players,  coaches 
and  referees,  but'  it's  fun  too.  so  let's  give  it  a  whirl.

8      THE  VARSITY,  Monday,  October  1,  195G 

Cathie  Breslin  Meets: 

Dean  Ian  Macdonald 

When  Ian  Macdonald  .spoke  to 
the  freshmen  o£  University  College 
last  Fridayevening  on  "the  color- 
ful side  of  university  life.'1  he  knew 
what  he  was  talking  about.  In  his 
phort  but  vivid  career.  Mr.  Mac- 
donald has  added  a  good  deal  of 
color  to  whatever  campus  he  hap- 
pened to  grace. 

After  an  eminently  successful 
career  as  an  undergraduate  at 
J.C,  Mr.  Macdonald  "went  up" 
-o  Oxford  in  1952  as  a  Rhodes 
scholar.  "Oxford  is  a  place 
A'hiclt.  it  is  so  different, 
you  either  love  or  hate.  You 
Hre  either  completely  caught  up 
jn  its  spirit,  or  miserable  be- 
cause of  its  nonsense." 

Fortunately,  the  spirited  Mr. 
Macdonald  soon  found  himself  in 
the  category  of  the  former.  One 
of  his  most  valuable  contribu- 
tions to  life  in  Balllol  College 
was  his   investigation    of  the 
problem  of  ingress. 
One   of   the   more   peculiar  - 
i  editions  of  the  college  dictated 
Ehfl]   the  door  should   be  locked 
[every  night  at  twelve,  and  that  the 
[entrance  back  to  the  college  after 
that  hour  should  depend  on  the  in- 
genuity of  the  individual  student. 

The  coal  chute  was  always  avail- 
able for  this  means,  but  it  had 
proved  to  have  damaging  effects 
on  evening  clothes.  The  favorite 
alternative  was  a  drain-pipe  lead- 
ing to  a  second-story  bedroom 
—  until  a  new  dean,  considering 
this  a  dangerous  route,  had  the 
lund-holds  sealed  over  with  lead 

Jn  view  of  the  gravity  of  the 
jiluation,  Mr.  Macdonald  was  ap- 
pointed the  head  of  a  committee  of 
three  Canadians  to  investigate 
v  ays  and  means  of  access.  After 
considerable  deliberation,  the  com- 
mittee presented  its  recommenda- 
tions to  a  meeting  in  the  Junior 
Common  Room;  the  lead  piping 
musl  go!  A  subcommittee  of  more 
aggressive  members,  headed  by  an 
engineer,  was  appointed  to  carry 
out  the  mechanical  aspect  of  the 
recommendation,  and  the  situation 
■was  under  control  —  until  it  leaked 
to  the  press. 

It  was  carried  first  in  a  large 
article  in  the  London  Daily 
Express,  in  which  Mr.  Macdonald 
■was  given  full  credit  for  his  share 
in  the  venture.  From  there  it 
spread  to  the  international  news 
service  and  appeared  in  the  New 
York  Herald  Tribune,  the  Rome 
Dally  American,  and  the  Wash- 
ington Post  —  to  mention  a  few. 

In  view  of  the  unexpected  pub- 

licity another  solution  seemed  to 
be  in  order,  and  eventually  a  small 
rope  ladder  was  installed  at  a  con- 
venient window. 

The  press  and  Mr,  Macdonald, 
in  fact,  rarely  saw  eye  to  eye. 
When  he  was  sent  as  an  observer 
from  Balliol  College  to  the  Inter- 
national Union  of  Students  con- 
ference in  Moscow,  he  was  given 

the  shortest  interview  on  record. 
The  reporter  from  Pravda  asked, 
"And  what  do  you  think  of  our 
social  system,  Mr.  Macdonald?" 

"I  find  it  a  highly  bourgeois  or- 
ganization of  society."  Mr.  Mac- 
donald replied.  Needless  to  say, 
his  penetrating  comment  did  not 
make  it  into  print. 

A  less  dubious  sort  of  Oxford 
fame  came  to  Mr,  Macdonald  by 
way  of  hockey.  For  three  years  he 
played  on  the  Oxford  team,  and  in 
his  second  year  he  was  captain. 
"We  got  great  fun  out  of  this 
hockey,"  Mr.  Macdonald  recalls. 

The  players  were  mainly  Cana- 
dian, and  the  high  point  of  the 
regular  schedule  was  the  Varsity 
match,  played  in  London  against 
Cambridge,  "In  the  three  years 
that  I  was  there,"  Mr.  Macdonald 
modestly  admits,  "We  trimmed 
them  every  time."  But  undoubtedly 
the  most  memorable  trip  of  the 
hockey  year  was  a  three-week  tour 
through  Europe  which  the  team 
took  over  the  Christmas  holidays. 
Germany,  Austria,  Switzerland 
and  northern  Italy  were  included 
on  the  agenda,  and  the  major 
expenses  of  the  trip  were  covered 

by  revenue  from  the  games.  The 
tour  was  usually  accomplished 
with  a  maximum  of  delight  and  a 
minimum  of  discomfort  —  in  fact, 
in  the  three  years  when  Mr.  Mac- 
donald was  along,  the  only  -at 
dent  occurred  when  the  assistant 
goalkeeper  dropped  a  bottle  on  his 
big  toe  during  the  course  of  a 
New  Year's  Eve  celebration. 

In  between  hockey  matches, 
Mr.  Macdonald  managed  to 
squeeze  in  a  B.A.  and  B.  Phil,  in 
economics:  he  expects  to  add  to 
these  an  M.A.  and  D.Phil  as 
well.  After  his  stay  abroad  he 
returned  to  this  university  as 
a  lecturer  in  Political  Economy. 

In  a  short  while  he  also  had 
become     involved     in  extra- 
i,    curricular  administration.  He 
1    is  an  advisor  to  the  Hart  House 
1    Debates  Committee  as  well  as 
f    to  three  separate  committees  of 
the   World   University  Service. 
He1  Was  also-  don  of  Jeanneret 
House  in  the  U.C.  Men's  Resi- 

This  year,  Mi\  Macdonald  has 
added  the  position  of  Dean  of  Men 
of  University  College  .to  his  list  of 
committments.  He  replaces  Dean 
BisselL  who  has  become  thevPresi- 
dent  of  Carleton  College. 

When  Mr.  Bissell  became  Dean 
at  U.C.  ten  years  ago,  at  the  age  of 
thirty,  he  was  the  youngest  dean 
on  record.  At  the  age  of  26,  Mr. 
M.  Macdonald  has  done  him  four 
years  better;  moreover,  the  position 
has  been  extended  from  Dean  of 
Residence  to  Dean  of  Men  to  in- 
clude the  day  students  as  well. 

Mr.  Macdonald  is  a  tweedy  pipe- 
smoker,  with  a  most  infectious  air 
of  friendliness  and  charm.  He 
admits  to  having  a  perennial  travel 
bug;  he  is  "restless  by  disposition 
—  much  happier  when  there,  is  so 
much  to  be  done  that  I  don't  know 
where  to  begin." 

Novels  are  his  private  reading 
diversion,  and  though  he  is  appal- 
led at  the  prices,  he  rarely  man- 
ages to  miss  anything  at  the 
theatre.  At  present  he  is  also  in- 
volved in  a  little  research  into 
jazz,  to  remedy  what  he  refers  to 
as,  "a  small  amount  of  social  in- 

Mr.  Macdonald  keeps  a  large, 
black  Irish  shillelagh  on  his  desk, 
in  keeping  with  his  new  position  as 
Dean,  but  in  view  of  his  popu- 
larity and  his  achievements,  we 
rather  doubt  that  it  will  get  much 
hard  use.

SMC's  Initiations 
"Too  Soft" -Sophs 

More,  than  140  second-year 
students  crowded  a  meeting  of 
the  St.  Michael's  student  govern- 
ment Monday  night  to  protect 
traditional"  initiations. 

The  three  and  a  half  hour 
meeting  decided  on  a  compromise 
between  proposed  constructive 
initiations  and  the  traditional 
type.  The  crowd  was  larger  than 
the  total  attendance  at  all  SMC 
Students'  Administrative  Coun- 
cil meetings  last  year. 

Six  freshmen  were  ejected  be- 
fore the  initiations  issue  was 
thrown  open  to  the  floor. 

The   proposed   initiations   are  said   Joseph   Valenti   (II  SMC', 

"wishy-washy,  unacceptable  and 
defeating  to  the  purpose  for 
which  initiations  exist,"  said 
second  year  Representative  Mi- 
chael Keenan. 

The  sophomores  demanded  a  re- 
turn to  snake  dances,  mock  trials, 
unusual  clothing,  some  degree  of 
hazing,  and  submission  by  fresh- 
men to  second  year. 

The  new  SAC  program  retains 
identification  signs,  beanies,  and 
the  submission.  It  provided  for 
"prizes  for  good  freshmen,  as 
opposed  to  beatings  for  the  bad,"

Bookstore  Queried 
On  Book  Dividends 

^University  bookstore  is  getting  i  of  books  and  $5.00  of  other  pur- 

more  questions  than  action  on  its 
new  Student  Purchase  Dividend, 

Bookstore  manager  R,  E.  Saul 
"The  SAC  has  decided  on  a 
quiries''  have  been  received.  He 
said  business  was  slow  now  at  the 
SPD  desk  but  a  rush  would  come 
when  students  had  saved  enough 

Under  the  plan,  students  get  a 
50  cent  dividend  for  buying  $5.00 

chases.  Coupons  and  stamps  used 
in  the  plan  may  be  saved  and 
cashed  in  from  now  to  December 
21.  when  the  trial  period  of  the 
plan  ends. 

Mr.  Saul  suggested  students 
save  their  receipts  so  they  not 
lose  credit  for  amounts  over 
coupons'  face  value.  For  example, 
he  said,  receipts  for  $7.95  would 
give  only  a  50  cent  dividend. 

SAC  Unveils  Report 
On  NFCUS  Tonight 

Varsity  Staff  Reporter 

Tonight  in  Falconer  Hall  a  re- 
port bound  in  secrecy  will  be  sub-

Whether  the  University  of  Tor- 
onto will  reverse  its  March  7 
stand  and  rejoin  the  much  cri- 
ticized national  body  will  depend 
largely  on  how  Mr.  Helleiner's  re- 
port is  received  at  the  meeting.

AVR  Takes  'Rainbow' 

"Finian's  Rainbow"  will  be  this 
year's  All-Varsity  Revue  produc- 

Director  Curt  Reis  expects  600 
students  from  all  faculties  to  com- 
pete for  the  show's  52  parts.  A  ne- 
gro-white cast  will  be  used. 

He  decided  on  the  1947  Har- 
burg-Lane-Saidy  hit  after  six 
months'  planning.  He  calls  it  "a 
fantasy  of  leprechauns  buried

delightful  comedy  and  romance. 

Odets  Too  Hot  For  UC 

The  University  College  student 
play  was  changed  overnight  Mon- 
day to  Tennessee  Williams'  "Sum- 
mer and  Smoke." 

Williams  personally  released 
royal  riehts  for  his  play  to  the 
UC  Literary  Society  and  Women's 
Undergraduate  Society.  Clifford 
Odets'  "Golden  Boy,"  announced 
Sunday  night  as  the  UC  Play,  has 
been  dropped  "Summer  and 
Smoke"  goes  to  Hart  House 
Theatre  Nov.  8,  9  and  10. 

Curt  Reis  is  still  director  of  the 

play,  with  Bill  Tepperman  (III 
UC)  producer. 

Casting  for  "Summer  and 
Smoke''  begins  today  and  goes  to 
Friday  from  11  a.m.  to  1  p.m., 
from  2  to  4  and  7.30  to  9.30  in  the 
UC  Men's  Residence  auditorium. 

The  play  is  a  story  of  two 
Southerners  who  meet  as  child- 
ren, meet  through  life,  should  get 
married  but  never  do.  John,  the 
male  lead,  ends  by  marrying  a 
music  pupil  of  the  female  lead, 

Vic  To  Stick  To  G  &  S 

Victoria  College  Music  Club  will 
definitely  produce  Gilbert  and 
Sullivan's  Ruddigore  this  year, 
club  President  Jack  Richardson 
has  announced.  He  said  the  club 
had  considered  abandoning  their 
half-ccntury  tradition  of  Gilbert 
9nd  Sullivan  in  favour  of  a 
Broadway  musical,  but  had  finally 
droiMJcd  it. 

"There  is  a  large  audience  for 
good  G  &  S  productions."  Mid  ti* 
president,  "and  we  expect  good 

attendance  at  Ruddigore  which 
for  many  students  represents  their 
first  chance  to  see  this  relatively 
unknown  opera." 

Besides  Ruddigore  in  February, 
the  Music  Club  sponsors  a  serits 
of  non-hour  concerts  and  a  madri- 
gal group.  The  first  meeting  will 
be  held  at  8  p.m.  on  October  10 
in  the  Wymilwood  music  room. 
All  interested  Vic  students  are 
urged  to  attend. 

Casting  for  "Finian's  Rainbow" 
begins  Monday  October  22,  and 
will  last  ten  days.  All- Varsity 
Revue  staff  have  an  office  above 
University  College's  Junior  Com- 
mon Room. 

A  complete  list  of  production 
staff  is  coming  soon,  Reis  said. 

Rehearsals  for  the  AVft  begin 
in  early  November.  The  show 
runs  i.i  Hart  House  Theatre  from 
February  11  to  16.  An  AVR  repre- 
sentative will  meet  the  authors  of 
the  show  in  New  York  at  Christ- 

This  year's  AVR  is  the  first 
since  1953,  when  the  show  stopped 
because  it  lacked  cash.  The 
Students*  Administrative  Council 
is  backing  this  year's  Revue. 

Reis  described  "Finian's  Rain- 
bow" as  "a  show  of  excellent 
theatre  value,  a  musical  lyric 
drama  which  alternates  between 
the  imaginary  realm  of  the  lepre- 
chauns and  the  harsh  reality  of 
every  day  life." 

UC  Players 

University  College  Players' 
Guild  meets  Thursday  to  plan  its 
year.  Its  first  production,  Eugene

NFCUS  conference.  It  was  ac- 
cepted by  that  conference  and,  if 
passed,  will  be  forwarded  to  the 
annual  NFCUS  national  meeting 
in  Montreal  next  week. 

Some  of  the  report's  points 
were  published  in  The  Varsity 
Monday.  A  further  analysis  was 
to  be  printed  today.  Gerry  Hel- 
leiner told  The  Varsity  the  report 
could  not  be  printed  until  it  was 
passed  by  the  Toronto  council. 

Originally,  the  policy  was  form 
ed  during  an  SAC  caucus  at  Cale 
don  Hills  farm.  There,  it  was  dis- 
cussed,  amended  and  put  into  its 
final  form.  Tonight,  for  the  first 
time,  it  will  be  presented  to  the 
Toronto  students  it  is  intended  to 

A  proposal  will  be  made  tonight 
to  send  two  Toronto  students  as 
"observers  to  the  NFCUS  Mon- 
treal conference. 

In  Monday's  paper,  National  Af- 
fair's chairman  Gerry  Helleiner 
wrote:  "Too  much  time  has  been 
spent  defending  NFCUS  and  not 
enough  constructively  making

'The  SAC  had  decided  on  a 
more  moderate  Initiation,"  said  * 
SAC  President  John  Leo.  "We 
wanted  a  more  positive  and  con- 
structive program  to  fulfill  the 
concept  of  initiation  as  a  process 
of  integration."  t 

Valenti  proposed  an  alternate 
solution  from  the  floor  to  restore 
a  "more  thorough  and  more  tra- 
ditional initiation." 

Final  solution  was  a  compro- 
mise which  "retained  the  mock 
trial  and  the  snake  dance,  while 
eliminating  the  physical  haz-ng," 
said  Leo.  Unusual  dress  and  su- 
bordination to  upperclasbmen 
were  also  included  in  the  com- 

Men*s  Athletic  Director  John 
Robinson  called  the  debate  "the 
liveliest  council  meeting  in  many 

"We  feel  the  compromise  re- 
presents a  turn  towards  a  more 
moderate,  constructive  initia- 
tion," Leo  said.  Valenti  termed 
the  compromise  "workable ."

University  ol  Toronto  will  join 
on  $85,000  highway  research  sur- 
vey starting  this  month.  The 
Ontario  Department  of  Highways 
and  Queen's  University  are  also 
in  on  the  survey. 

The  project  will  include  all 
aspects  of  highway  problems  from 
road  surfaces  to  traffic  jams.  Both

Since  the  colonel  assumed  his

the  university  has  acquired  46 
new  buildings,  including  Soldier's

Queen's  University  Principal  W. 
A.  Macintosh,  said  he  was  pleased 
that  co-operation  between  the  De- 
partment and  the  Universities  had 
been  achieved. 

"The  pressure  on  the  highway 
system  requires  the  assistance  of 
all  who  are  able  to  help,"  he  said. 

President  Smith  of  Toronto  said 
it  is  important  to  have  safe  and 
well  designed  highways  with 
ever-increasing  traffic  on  our  pre- 
sent roads. 

A  committee  will  direct  the  re- 

search. Prof.  Morrison  will  be  in 
charge  at  Toronto.  Main  topics  of 
research  here  will  be  the  study 
of  the  economic  aspects  of  high- 
way communications  and  the  pro- 
blems of  construction  and  design.

who  pays  the  piper  ? 

In  these  days  of  rising  costs  for  everything  from 
diapers  to  coffin  shrouds,  it  would  be  very  difficult 
to  blame  the  university  for  needing  more  money. 

What  is  objectionable  is  its  method  of  raising  it. 

Industry  is  screaming  for  trained  personnel. 
From  every  corner  of  the  economy  comes  the  call  for 
more  and  more  university  graduates— graduates  not 
only  of  the  relatively  cheap  (because  of  their  assem- 
bly line  economies)  undergraduate  courses,  but  of 
the  highly  expensive  post-graduate  schools. 

The  federal  government  seems  unwilling  to  act: 
and  our  provincial  house— in  spite  of  last  year's  seem- 
ing generosity— is  not  facing  the  facts. 

Newspapers  are  and  have  been  chewing  the 
issue  like  a  child  chewing  bubble  gum— occasionally 
producing  a  snappy  little  bubble,  but  more  often  just 
rolling  it  around  to  get  the  taste  of  it. 

But  it  is  unlikely  that  government  at  any  level 
will  act  until  the  public  wind,  choked  back  by  the 
lack  of  trained  leaders,  blows  the  issue  into  a  great 
big  political  football. 

And  meanwhile,  who  is  bearing  the  burden  of 
increased  costs?  You,  undergraduate  reader,  you  are 
bearing  it. 

It  seems  hardly  fair  that  student  fees  should 
rise  38  per  cent  when  the  cost  of  living— which  fol- 
lows the  income  curve  very  closely— goes  up  slightly 
more  than  1 9. 

And  it  seems  even  less  fair  when  the  average 
student's  fees  must  be  raised  to  meet  costs  of  educat- 
ing the-  truly  brilliant  scholar  whose  way  should  be 
paid  by  the  industry  that  is  crying  for  him. 

If  industry  wants  more  personnel,  let  them  pay 
for  their  training. 

Let  us  not  have  the  average  student  foot  the 
bill  for  industry's  future  leaders,  even  if  his  classroom 
must  be  cramped  by  less  than  average  students  who 
are  being  allowed  into  university. 

who  calls  the  tune? 

In  the   Provincial  budget  brought  down  last  ' 
March,  the  University  of  Toronto  was  scheduled  for 
more  than  half  a  million  dollars  in  added— to  the  pre- 
vious year's  budget— grants. 

At  that  time,  university  administrators  expres- 
sed their  satisfaction  with  the  extra  money. 

Vice-President  F.  F.  R.  Stone  was  quoted  in  The 
Varsity  of  March  2  as  saying:  "With  this  grant  we  can 
balance  the  university's  budget  very  well  for  the 
coming  year.  We  needed  more  than  we  received  last 
year  in  order  to  balance  the  forthcoming  budget.  As 
it  stood,  we  were  afraid  there  was  going  to  be  a  def- 

President  Smith  was  also  quoted  as  being  pleas- 
ed with  the  raise  in  the  grant.  More  money,  accord- 
ing to  the  president,  had  been  received  than  had 
been  requested. 

And  yet  the  students'  fees  were  raised  this  sum- 
mer—with no  previous  warning. 

Had  there  been  adequate  warning  —  although, 
admittedly,  no  warning  would  have  been  adequate- 
many  students  whose  activities  are  being  crippled  or 
who  were  unable  to  return  to  school  at  all,  might 
have  been  able  to  plan  otherwise. 

There  is  something  wrong,  either  with  the  finan- 
cial planning  of  this  university,  or  with  the  methods 
of  making  its  planning  public.

Hey,  Mom  .  .  .

.  .  .  Junior's 


Fees  at  the  University  of 
Toronto  are  the  fourth  highest 
of  thirteen  universities  in  Ca- 

Toronto,  where  Arts  fees  of 
$335  represent  an  average, 
stands  lower  than  McGill  at 
$350  -$375,  Assumption  at  $300 

-  $350.  and  Bishop's  at  $325- 

-  But  it  ranks  slightly  higher 
than  McMaster  at  $310-S337, 
and-  Laval  at  $300. 

Four  universities  have  man- 
aged to*  stay  within  the  two- 
hundred  bracket:  UBC  with 
$240,  Queens  with  $280,  DaJ- 
housie  with  $235-75,  and  Mount 
Allison  with  $245. 

Manitoba  pushed  the  bottom 
of  the  column  with  $180,  and 
Alberta  follows  close  behind 
with  $145.  St.  Dunstan's,  PEI, 

at  $100-130,  shares  the  lowest 
honors  with  Newfoundland  Me- 
morial University,  at  $100-115. 

This  puts  Toronto  into  the 
top  third  bracket,  as  far  as  fees 
are  concerned. 

By  way  of  comparison,  the 
cost  of  education  at  Toronto 
is  one-third  higher  than  the 
lowest-paying  student  cost  else- 
where in  Canada.  But  at  the 
same  time,  it  is  roughly  one- 
third  less  than  the  standard 
tuition  fee  of  $1,000.  at  eastern 
United  States  universities. 

Toronto  was  not  the  only  Ca- 
nadian university  which  found 
a  raise  in  tuition  necessary; 
Manitoba  increased  10%,  and 
Alberta  5%.  Of  these,  Toronto's 
raise  was  the  highest,  with

The  most  consistently  repeat- 
ed suggestion  as  to  what  could 
be  done  was  that  private  indus- 
try should  support  education. 

R.  Ballantyne  (I  SPS)  said 
government,  industry,  and  the 
students  themselves  should  split 
the  cost  of  education. 

"Industry  squawks  about  stan- 
dards but  does  nothing,"  said 
Bob  Cook,  "but  in  the  U.S.A.  — 
Ahhhh  .  " 

T.  Pritchard  (I  Mining)  is

but  Peter  Robinson  (III  Chem

all  .agreed  that  something  must

University  of  Toronto-  students 
asked  as  they  paid  $30  to  $50 
more  in  fees  last  week.  ■ 

It's  "tp  attract  and  keep  a 
staff  of  top  calibre  so  as  to  in- 
sure a  sound  and  thorough  edu- 
cation," F.  R.  Stone,  U  of  T 
Adminstrative  Vice  -  President 
said  Tuesday.  "Professors'  salar- 
ies are  one  of  the  biggest  items 
of  cost  in  our  budget.  Even  with 
raises  their  salaries  are  lower 
than  those  of  men  similarly 
qualified  in  commerce  and  in- 

Even  though  Toronto  is  asking 
both  business  and  the  province 
to  give  more  financial  help, 
further  income  must  come  from 
the  students,  he  said.  Both  the 
province  and  industry  are  doing 
what  they  can,  but  students  are 
only  paying  28  per  cent  of  then- 
education  costs,  the  Vice-Presi- 
dent said. 

"The  rise  is  fair  since  student 
income  in  part-time  jobs  is  also 

The  recent  provincial  grant 
will  not  be  earmarked  for  bur- 
saries but  "will  cover  a  major 
portion  of  expenses  the  students' 
fees  don't  cover." 

Money  for  bursaries  comes 
from  outsiders,  he  said;  and 
usually  adds  to  the  University's 
cost,  This  is  because  U  of  T 
doesn't  profit  from  fees  received, 
but  instead  has  to  contribute  to 
the  additional  cost  of  maintain- 
ing the  subsidized  students. 

This  it  does  gladly,  he  said. 

The  new  fee  raise  will  "ab- 
sorb and  properly  distribute  the 
cost  of  education"  of  students, 
Mr.  Stone  said. 

This  year's  fee  raise  adds 
about  half  a  million  dollars  to 
the  University's  current  budget. 
The  last  Ontario  budget  in  March

fact  that  Ontario's  budget  (or  the 
coming  fiscal  year  placed  em- 
phasis on  the  institutions  of 
higher  learning. 

Referring  to  the  expected 
plateau  of  the  19t30's.  Mr.  Porter 
said.  "Our  efforts  must  be  devoted 
to  achieving  a  balanced  program 
of  university  expansion." 

Total  amount  allotted  to  uni- 
versities and  colleges  included 
the  greateil  increase  in  Ontario's 
history.  The  province  will  spend 
twenty-four  million  dollars  bjj 
higher  education  —  seven  million 
more  than  the  previous  year. 

The  University  of  Toronto  and 
the  Ontario  College  of  Education 
were  awarded  five  and  a  half 
million  dollars  lor  maintenance, 
and  almost  three  million  dollar 
in  capital  grants.  This  means  an 
increase  of  six  hundred  and  fif-

Maintenance  allowances  and 
grants  to  other  Ontario  Univer-

They're  fighting  cancer 


with  a  donut! 

In  the  medical  center  of  the  University  of  Saskatchewan, 
shown  above,  a  22-million-volt  Betatron  built  by  Allis- 
Chalmers  is  providing  a  new  and  vital  force  in  the  battle 
against  cancer.  Heart  of  the  Betatron  is  the  electron  beam 
tube,  or  "donut",  whose  powerful  beams  make  possible 
tissue  destruction  at  controlled  depths. 

Designed  originally  to  make  possible  the  examination 
of  large,  complicated  castings  used  in  heavy  industry  — 
to  locate  defects  that  might  endanger  human  life  and 
property  —  the  Betatron  is  only  one  of  many  types  of 
industrial  equipment  finding  new  use  in  medical,  muni- 
cipal and  other  public  service  fields. 

Blowers  and  compressors,  motors,  constant  and  vari- 
able-speed v-belt  drives,  and  centrifugal  pumps  made  by 
Allis-Chalmers  are  at  work  day  in  and  day  out  across 
Canada,  helping  to  provide  services  so  vital  to  public 

In  fact,  almost  every  industry  or  service  contributing 
to  your  better'  living  is  served  at  some  point  by  Allis- 
Chalmers.  For  further  information,  write  Canadian

fonnie  Stewart  At  Quarterback? 
\nytbings  Possible  With  Tindall 

THE  VARSITY.  Wednesday,  October  3.  1956 

\  veil  of  secrecy  enshrouds  two 
(tball  tamps  this  week  as  Varsity 
Ilea  and  Queen's  Golden  Gaels 
ngfor  the  opening  Intercol- 
[iate  game  in  Varsity  Stadium 

Saturday  afternoon. 
Mthough  two   cuts   were  made 

the  Blues  yesterday,  the  start- 
J  line-up  for  Saturday's  game  is 
own  only  to  i  if  anybody  at  ail) 
■ad  "Coach  Dart  White  and  as- 
tants  Jack  Kennedy  and  John 
:Manus.  End  Bob  Lee  and  full- 
:k  Don  Cornish  were  cut  yester- 
7,  leaving  the  squad  35  strong. 
ly-26  of  these  are  allowed  to 
as  for  the  Saturday  game, 
^oach  White  said  last  night  that 

will  likely  carry  two  men  at 
:h  position,  with  an  extra  line- 
n  and  an  extra  backfielder.

rytis  equally  indefinite.  Ap- 
rently  not  satisfied  with  the 
jrterbacking  performances  of

i  been  experimenting  with  little 
nnie  Stewart  at  the  pivot  slot, 
i  it  would  surprise  no  one  to  see 
:  pint-sized  speedster  calling  the 
nalfe  on  Saturday. 
Ton  possibility,  ' combined  with 

Tim  Reid 

Best  Ball-carrier 


There  are  still  some 
in  the  S.A.C.  Office 

the  fact  that  the  Gaels"  boast  a 
great  running  backfield.  indicates 
that  the  Tricolor  could  present  the 
Blues  with  an  entirely  different 
offense  than  the  one  they  met 
against  Kitchener  last  weekend. 
Queens  The  Problem 

Despite  McGill's  widely-publi- 
cised potency,  Varsity  Coach  White 
is  less  worried  about  Larry  Sulli- 
van's Redmen  than  he  is  about  the 
Gaels.  The  Blues  know  pretty  well 
what  they'll  be  up  against  when 
they  travel  to  Montreal  a  week 
from  Saturday,  but  what  Queen's 
will  produce  is  somewhat  of  a 
mystery.  "Knowing  Tindall.  he's 
liable  to  do  anything"  said  Coach 
White  last  night. 

To  name  26  men  from  a  squad 
of  35  that  performed  weir  as  a  unit 
against  Kitchener  will  be  no  easy 
problem  for  the  Varsity  mentor. 
Two-way  players  will  be  the  pre- 
ferred choice,  a  factor  which 
makes  the  problem  all  the  more 

One  person  who  seems  a  sure- 
bet  is  fullback  Tim  Reid.  The 
180-pound  chugger  played  steady 
ball  in  the  Blues'  two  exhibition 
battles,  and  rates  with  the  coach- 
ing staff  as  one  of  the  best  ball- 
cariers  on  the  team. 

The  Golden  Gaels'  will  be  after 
their  first  win  here  in  Varsity 
Stadium  since  1949.  That  year  and 
the  one  previous,  they  were  vic- 
torious in  the  Bloor  Bowl,  but  have 
failed  to  win  a  league  game  there 

As  far  as  injuries  are  concerned 
the  Blues  are  in  fairly  good  shape. 
Peter  Mailt,  bothered  by  a  bad 
ankle  in  practice,  will  play,  al- 
though still  having  trouble  with 
his  injury.  Dave  Mclntyre  has  a 
bruised  side,  but  he  will  be  in 
action  as  well. 

Baby  Blues  Away 

With  all  eyes  focused  on  the 
"big"  game  here.  Intermediate 
Coach  Roy  McMurtry  and  his 
Baby  Blues  steal  away  tomorrow 
night  en  route  to  Kingston  where 
they  meet  Queen's  Comets.  The 
intermediates  open  their  schedule 
there  on  Friday  afternoon.  Defend- 
ing tie  champions  with  OAC 
Aggies,  they  are  out  to  win  sole 
possession  of  the  Shaw  Trophy 
this  season. 

In  the  other  game,  McGill  Red 
men  are  the  first  team  in  the 
loop  to  run  up  against  Johni 
Metras*  "Operation  Yates."  The 
Mustangs,  with  exhibition  wins  of 
38-13  and  44-1  over  minor  college 
teams  could  be  dangerous.

Because  its  members  are  elected  on  no  specific 
platforms,  and  therefore  are  divided  only  by  fa- 
culty or  school  rather  than  by  philosophy,  our 
Students'  Administrative  Council  must  face  a  basic 
responsibility.  Every  issue  that  confronts  them 
must  be  examined  from  all  points  of  view. 

To  judge  from  the  first  meeting  of  the  1956-57 
council,  Wednesday  evening  in  Falconer  Hall, 
that  responsibility  will  not  be  met  this  year. 

On  the  agenda  of  that  meeting  were  several 
importdnt  items  of  business,  including  the  expen- 
diture of  more  than  $13,000  (more  than  one  dol- 
lar a  student).  Put  off,  because  of  the  "lengthy 
discussion"  it  would  generate,  was  the  evening's 
most  important  decision— what  should  be  the  Tor- 
onto delegates'  policy  at  the  national  NFCUS  con- 
ference next  week. 

A  record  of  the  evening's  business— which  in- 
cluded the  adoption  of  seven  committee  reports- 
shows  not  one  single  dissenting  voice.  No  one  vot- 
ed "no"  to  anything. 

The  "lengthy  discussion"  of  the  complex  (and 
admittedly  commendable}  NFCUS  policy  consist- 

ed of  two  questions— one  from  a  non-voting  mem- 
ber, and  the  other  inane. 

It  is  impossible  to  believe  that  nowhere  in  three 
and  a  half  hours'  discussion  was  there  on  item  of 
business  that,  one  faculty  or  school  representative 
disagreed  with.  It  is  impossible  to  believe  that  no- 
where in  the  NFCUS  policy  —  regardless  of  how 
long  it  was  discussed  privately  at  Caledon  farm 
by  less  than  two-thirds  of  the  council— is  there  a 
clause  that  needs  some  clarification  or  justifica- 

While  no  one  would  expect  twenty-one  mem- 
bers of  the  council  to  be  fully  conversant  with  all 
parliamentary  rules  and  procedures  at  their  first 
meeting,  at  least  they  should  have  an  opinion*  a- 
bout  what  is  going  on.  It  would  do  no  harm  if  that 
opinion  were  informed. 

Now— while  the  year  is  still  young— is  the  time 
for  this  council  to  conquer  any  fear  of  expressing 
its  opinion.  If  its  members  are  to  live  up  to  thei' 
responsibilities,  they  must  not  be  afraid  of  their 
own  thoughts.  It  is  to  express  them,  by  vote  or  by 
speech,  that  they  were  elected  lost  spring.

We  Are,  We  Are,  We  Are, 


Just  One  Bleary-Eyed  Surveyor 
With  His  Friends,  The  Engineers 

The  SAC  bulletin  board  — 
scourage  of  last  year's  council 
meetings  —  has  finally  arrived. 
It  sits  atop  the  book  store,  bear- 
ing an  engineer's  sign. 

A  group  of  engineering  students 
carried  the  sign  from  its  Varsity 
stadium  grave  last  night— twenty 
four  hours  after  the  SAC  had 
termed  it  '"too  heavy  to  move 
without  a  truck  and  a  winch". 

The  sign  had  been  sitting  in  a 
tin  shed  under  the  east  grand- 
stand of  the  stadium  since  last 
March.  Originally  it  was  to  be 
erected  by  Architecture  students. 
It  wasn't. 

j  Steel  for  the  eight-by-five  foot 
board  was  donated  by  Dominion 
Bridge  company  last  year,  when 

the  SAC  appealed  for  assistance. 

The  bulletin  board  came  up  in 
meeting  after  meeting  last  year. 
It  has  been  the  subject  of  count- 
less Varsity  editorials. 

Wednesday  night  the  board  was 
brought  once  again  to  the  atten- 
tion of  the  council.  A  committee 
of  two  was  appointed  by  the  meet- 
ing after  fifteen  minutes  of  some- 
what frivolous  discussion, 

SAC  Secretary-Treasurer  E.  A. 
MacDonald  told  the  council  the 
sign  was  "almost  too  big." 

"If  we've  waited  this  long  for 
it,"  a  council  member  commented, 
"we  might  as  well  wait  for  a

SAC  Brings  Forth 
New  NFCUS  Plans 

1  Toronto's  Students'  Adminis- 
trative Council  passed  a  new  plan 
for  the  National  Federation  of 
Canadian  University  Students 
Wednesday  night  with  only  two 
questions  from  the  floor. 

There  were  no  'no'  votes 
through  the  entire  three  and  a 
half  hour  meeting. 

The  meeting  also  approved 
$13,000  for  publication  of  Toron- 
tonensis  and  production  of  the 
All-Varsity  Revue.  "With  full 
houses  for  six  nights  the  AVR 
can  make  $4,500,"  Finance 
Chairman  Steve  Freedhoff  tUC) 
said.  Budgeted  expenses  are 

The  Toronto  TJFCUS  plan  asks 
for  concentration  dn  "better  un- 
derstanding among  Canadian 
students"  and  national  represen- 
tation to  the  government  and 
other  student  groups.  In  effect, 
it  cuts  out  most  NFCUS  activi- 
ties such  as  contests,  student 
discount  service,  and  life  in- 

Any  NFCUS  activity  would  be 
judged  by  'demand  by  a  suffi- 
cient number  of  students,'  Na- 
tional Affairs  Chairman  Gerry 
Helleiner  said.  NFCUS  should 
be  the  only  organization  capable 
of  handling  it,  and  it  should  not 
•embarrass  the  central  organi- 
zation' as  to  money  or  staff 
time,  he  said. 

The  national  presidency  would 
be  abolished  because  national 
office  workload  would  be  slashed. 

The  plan  goes  now  to  the  na- 
tional NFCUS  conference  in 
Montreal  next  week.  It  hay  On- 
tario college  support. 

A  "committee  to  look  into  the 
committee"  was  set  up  to  in- 
vestigate a  permanent  investi- 
gating committee  for  President 
Forstner.  If  set  up,  the  perman- 
ent group  would  look  into  course  | 
problems,  university1  red  tape, 
the  coming  boom  in  enrolment, 
overcrowded  classes,  and  other 
student  problems.  I 

were  appointed  to  investigate  mov 
ing  the  board  to  somewhere  near 
the  SAC  office  —  probably  direct- 
ly in  front  of  it. 

It's  not  so  far  away  now. 

A  clamor  reached  the  Varsity 
office  at  11  o'clock  last  night.  The 
board  was  rising  slowly  on  to  the 
root  of  the  book-store.  Under  it's 
steel  legs  groaned  a  horde  of 
mighty  skulemen. 

A  sign  was  fastened  to  the 
bulletin  board.  "That  what  it's  for, 
isn't  it?"  an  engineer  asked. 

The  sign  says  "Engineers  ride 
again,  —  Brute  Force  Committee." 

SAC  members  could  not  be 
reached  for  comment  last  night.

NFCUS  Replica 

Varsity  Staff  Reporter 

A  National  Affairs  Committee 
will  be  set  up  under  the  juris- 
diction of  the  Students  Ad- 
ministrative Council  if  the  SAC 
decides  to  remain  out  of  NFCUS 
after  the  NFCUS  conference  in 
Montreal  next  week. 

The  program  put  forth  by  Doug 
Hubley.  (IV  SPS)  at  last  night's 
External  Affairs  Committee  meet- 
ing would  restore  the  original 
aims  of  NFCUS.  If  the  SAC«votes 
to  remain  out  of  NFCUS,  the  NAC 
will  be  set  up  to  stress  the  points 
on  the  Toronto  campus  which  will 
be  stressed  at  the  coming  NFCUS 
conference.  More  exchange 
scholarships,  more  exchange  week- 
ends and  regional  conferences  are 
possible  examples  of  this  policy. 

The  '  decision '  to  return  la 
NFCUS  will  be  based  on  whether 
NFCUS  is  willing  to  adopt  policy 
along  lines  which  the  Toronto 
delegates  suggest. 

Weekends  Committee  chairman  „ 
Liz  Van  Every  (III  UC)  reported 
that  University  of  Michigan  and. 
Ann  Arbor  had  both  been  written, 
to  regarding  weekend  exchanges 
and  both  had  shown  interest  in  a

Roll  On  Beethoven 

If  it  was  the  done  thing,  the 
audience  would  have  danced  in 
the  aisles  at  the  end  of  the 
Beethoven  Cycle,  completed  at 
the  Royal  Music  Conservatory 
on  Wednesday  night.  The  Buda- 
pest String  Quartet  played  the 
Quartets  Opus  18  Nos_  1,  2  and 
5  — Opus  59  Nos.  1,  2  and  3 — 
Opus  130.  131,  132. 

Each  programme  was  of  the 
same  pattern,  a  Quartet  from 
Opus  18,  Opus  59  and  a  later 
Quartet.  The  earliest  works 
have  an  affinity  with  those  of 
Haydn  and  Mozart,  those  of 
Opus  59  foreshadow  the  pro- 
fundity of  the  last  three,  which 
are  charged  with  as  much  emo- 
tion and  expressive  force  as 
the  form  will  bear. 

At  all  times  it  was  a  pleasure 
to  watch  the  artists  at  worlf.. 
So  often  we  have  seen  artists 
who  seem  to  be  suffering  from 
an  attack  of  acute  constipation 
during  their  performances.  The 
Budapest  Quartet  were  alter- 
nately wreathed  with  smiles  ol' 
rapt  with  intensity.  The  slight- 
est glance  to  a  partner  might 
produce  that  extra  nuance  that 
lifted  their  interpretations  from 
the  good  to  the  sublime. 

On  the  last  night,  Opus  18, 
No.  5  was  played  in  a  tradi- 
tional classical  manner.  The 
wit,  elegance  and  precision  in- 
jected into  the  andante  with 
variations  was  perfectly  con- 
trasted with  the  vigorous  alia 
marcia  and  the  exultation  of 
the  finale.  Opus  59,  No.  3,  was 
distinguished  by  the  most 
beautifully  rounded  tone  in  the 
cycle.  This  was  particularly 
evident  in  the  tuttis,  which  at 
other  times  inevitably  tend  to 
sound  strident.  The  andante  was 
languid,  yet  ,the  performance 
lucid.  Trie  memfetto  leading 
into  the  allegro  molto  was 
played  with  a  tremendous  viri- 
lity that  indeed  strained  the 
quartet  to  its  very*  limits. 
^  On  Tuesday  night,  the  Opus 
59,  No.  2,  was  given  a  suitably 
tense  performance  in  the  first 
movement  and  the  slow  move- 
ment   was    played    with  due 

feeling;  Opus  130  was  given 
some  precise  playing,  graceful 
and  brittle  as  demanded. 

Monday  night  was  also  satis- 
factory and  a  suitable  introduc- 
tion to  the  artists.  Their  hard 
work  and  technical  brilliance 
were  immediately  evident. 

The  artists  are  Hungarian 
and  still  speak  among  them- 
selves in  their  own  tongue. 
While  they"  perform  music  in 
"the  great  European  Tradition" 
(how  they  relished  the  landler 

budapest  quartet 


the  mountain 


gait  of  Opus  18,  No.  5)  the 
Quartet  has  become  a  world 
wide  institution.  Jozeph  Rois- 
man  led  the  Quartet  with  dis- 
tinction, and  their  tempi  were 
indisputably  correct.  Alexan- 
der Schneider  gave  discreet 
support.  Boris  Kroyt—  almost 
an  image  of  Beethoven  himself 
— was  a  delight  to  watch.  Mis- 
cha  Schneider  exploited  his 
"cello  to  the  full,  and  excelled

Casting  for  the  Victoria 
College  Drama.  Club's  major 
Hart  House  production  of 
Giraudovix's  "Electra"  will 
be  heft]  in  Wymilwood  Music 
Room,  Tuesday  afternoon, 
October  9th,  beginning  at 
2:30.  Herbert  Whittaker, 
Globe  and  Mail  drama,critic, 
is  directing. 

The  Mountain  at  the  Univer- 
sity Theatre  is  a  graphic  reali- 
zation of  human  emotions  em- 
brangled in  the  conflict  of  man 
pitted  against  the  elemental 
force  of  the  mountain  and  the 
spiritual  power  of  selfishness, 
the  death  impulse. 

This  presentation  is  height- 
ened by  superlative  colour  pho- 
tography, not  dependent  upon 
it.  Its  intensity  is  also  indebted 
to  the  absence  of  the  sensa- 
tionalism so  drearily  omnipre- 
sent in  Ascent  Films.  There  are 
rocks  and  rolls,  toe-holds  that 
would  try  the  proverbial  moun- 
tain-goat's pedal  extremities, 
and  some  hanging  by  the 
thumbs  too,  but  in  this  film 
they  belong  in  the  reasonable 
context  of  climbing  technique, 
not  in  that  of  mere  scrabbling 

Spencer  Tracy  play's  with 
distinction  a  shepherd  whose 
animistic  view  of  nature  (he 
cares  how  the  mountain  feels 
about  him)  contributes  to  his 
unostentatious  rock-among-men 
character  with  its  concomitant 
gentleness  and  humility.  His 
effort  to  find  good  everywhere, 
even  when  he  has  no  alternative 
but  to  imagine  it  in  the  brother 
he  loves,  brought  tears. 

The  latter's  relentless  rapa- 
city, motivated  by  the  contu- 
melious fair,  leads  to  cumula- 
tive blasphemous  acts  on  the

mountain.  Searching  for  gold 
he  strips  the  corpses  in  the 
charnel-house  wreck  of  an  air 
transport,  breaks  the  cross 
which  would  consecrate  the 
ground  because  its  reconstruc- 
tion impedes  his  felony,  and 
murderously  assaults  the  sole 
survivor  of  the  crash  as  evi- 
dence of  his  criminal  presence 
on  the  scene. 

Robert  Wagner,  as  this  sa- 
tanic  accuser,  finds  the  dark 
mountain  of  his  own  heart 
even  in  his  self-sacrificing 
brother.  "You're  afraid!"  he 
shouts  when  the  climb  becomes 
precarious,  and  when  his  bro- 
ther's abraded  palms  dye  their 
rope  crimson  hauling  him  to 
safety,  "Look,  at  that,  you've 
hurt  yourself.  You  won't  be 
able  to  help  me."  He  plunges  to 
his  death  believing  that  "y'ou're 
'ying,  you  want  me  to  stay  up 
here  and  die."

Ye  Ballade  of  Macbeth  ye  Knife 

Oh,  the  shark  has  pretty  teeth,  dears 
And  he  shows, them  pearly  white 
.lust  a  skean  dhu  has  Macbeth,  dears 
And  he  keeps  it  out  of  sight. 

Neath  a  bedspread  in  the  guest  room 
Lies  old  Duncan  on  the  floor 
Someone  severed  his  aorta 
And  he's  laced  with  golden  gore. 

To  the  banquet  General  liannno 
Was  invited  by  his  host 
General  lianquo  missed  the  banquet 
No  one  came  hut  Hanquo's  ghost. 

In  the  courtyard,  hacked  to  pieces 
Lies  Macduff's  lamented  wife 
With  her  nephews  and  her  nieces 
Compliments  of  Mac  the  Knife. 

By  the  witches'  recollection 
No  one  born  could  cause  his  death 
But  a  cesarean  section 
Dropped  the  curtain  on  Macbeth. 

As  the  villain  there's  Paul  Kogers 
An-d  his  Lady's  Coral  Browne 
So  the  line  forms  on  the  right,  dears 
Mac  the  Knife  is  back  in  town. 

Macbeth  being  the  second  of  three  Shakespearean 
plays,  being  presented  by  the  Old  Vic  at  the  Royal  Alec. 
Well  worth  seeing,  if  you  can  possibly  afford  it.

At  exactly  two  o'clock  tomorrow  afternoon,  the  whistle 
will  blow,  the  referee's  arm  will  fall,  and  24  football  players 
wJI  charge  into  the  first  play  of  this  year's  Intercollegiate 
football  schedule. 

Queen  s  Golden  Gaels  and  Varsity  Blues,  rivals  on  the 
Varsity  Stadium  gridiron  tomorrow,  cadi  have  a  mission  to 
accomphsh.  The  Gaels  are  out  to  win  their  first  game  in 
Toronto  since  1949.  A  victory  for  the  Tricolor  would  be  a  vital 
factor  in  their  defense  of  the  Yates  Cup. 

The  Blues,  meanwhile,  take  to  the  field  with  two  objectives 
in  mind-to  prove  to  football  followers  that  theirs  is  not  the 
role  of  the  underdog  and  to  give  Coach  Dalt  Wnite  a  victorious 
debut  as  a  Senior  Intercollegiate  coach. 

It  will  not  be  an  easy  task  for  either  team.  The  Blues 
proved  last  week  that  they  have  the  defensive  potential  to  stop 
Stewart,  Surphlis,  Kocman  and  Co.  They  proved  that  they 
have  a  well-balanced  passing  and  running  attack.  And  thirdly 
they  proved  that  they'll  work  as  a  team  with  one  ultimate 
aim-to  return  to  the  halls  of  Hart  House  the  coveted  cham- 
pionship silverware. 

The  Gaels  will  answer  back  with  an  experienced,  but  so 
far  unsensational  squad.  The  above-mentioned  trio  returns  to 

form  the  backbone  of  the  half-line.  Captain  Gary  Lewis,  Jim 
Hughes,  Kuss  Radchuk  and  Russ  Thoman  wiU7  provide  t™ 
holdover  line  power  The  question  mark  rests  at  the  quarterback 
slot.  Snce  it  doesn't  appear  likely  that  any  late  imports  will

A  football  team  plays  a  better  game  with  a 
good  crowd  behind  it,  and  our  Blues  are  no  dif- 
ferent. If  you  have  to  bring  your  mother-in-law, 
bring  her  .  .  But  make  sure  you  come  yourself. 





With  only  four  issues  of  the  Varsity  to  date,  it's  surprising 
the  number  of  odds  and  ends  we've  collected  but  not  had  the 
room  to  print .  . .  Following  are  as  many  as  we  can  cram  in  .  .  . 

All  eyes  in  the  Toronto  area  will  be  focused  on  Varsity 
Stadium  tomorrow  afternoon  .  .  .  That  is,  all  who  attend  the 
game  . . .  It's  a  tough  w'eekend  as  far  as  sports  activities  go  . . . 
The  Argos  and  Tiger-Cats  tangle  in  Hamilton  .  .  .  The  Ottawa 
Roughriders  host  Peahead  Walker's  Alouettes  in  the  Capitol, 
with  television  coverage  of  the  game  .  .  .  Then  there's  always 
the  World  iSeries,  which,  barring  rain,  should  continue  at 
Yankee  Stadium  . . . 

Which  one  do  you  take?  . 
here  in  the  Bloor  Street  Bowl  . 

.  Our  choice  is  the  game  right 
.  We  hope  you're  with  us  . .  . 

Latest  word  from  McGill  shows  that  the  Redmen  are 
running  into  injury  difficulty  .  .  .  Tackle  Jack  Behrman,  who 
joined  Dickie  Carr  on  the  McGill  import  list,  is  out  indefinitely 
with  a  chest  injury  .  .  .  The  doc  has  ordered  surgery  .  .  .  An- 
other blow  to  Larry  Sullivan  .  .  .  He's  still  recovering  from 
Wally  Bulchak's  academic  failure,  which,  of  course,  makes  the 
ex-Blue  ineligible  .  .  . 

Don't  feel  upset  if  you  see  a  new  convert  formation  to- 
morrow ...  In  an  effort  to  save  the  rapidly-disappearing  foot- 

balls, the  latest  suggestion  is  that  the  teams  try  their  converts 
from  their  end  zone,  kicking  the  ball  over  the  bar,  if  successful, 
onto  the  field  .  .  . 

Timmy  Reid's'  answer  when  asked  how  much  he  shelled 
out  to  a  local  sportswriter  for  his  spread  on  Wednesday?  ...  "I 
paid  him  by  the  pound"  .  .  .  Hmmm  .  .  .  Any  of  you  oldstei> 
who  were  alive  and  kicking  in  the  days  of  Fritzie  Hanson 
should  compare  him  to  Reid  .  .  .  The  ex-Ridley  flash  bears  a 
striking  resemblance  to  the  little  tad, who  led  the  West  to  its 
first  Grey  Cup  victory  back  in  1935  .  .  . 

ivotice  where  glamour  boy  Ronnie  Knox  has  inked  a 
Calgary  Stampeder  contract  .  .  .  Masterson  takes  up  where 
Hamilton's  Jake  Gaudaur  left  off  in  his  raving  about  the  21- 
year-old  movie  star  .  .  .  It's  a  shame  that  Harvey  is  on  hand 
to  stir  up  trouble  .  .  .  The  big  blow-up  with  Hamilton  came 
after  Harvey  blasted  the  T-C"s  on  a  Norm  .Marshall  interview 

.  . .  The  portly  announcer  spent  the  next  two  weeks  apologizing 
for  the  booboo  . . . 

Any  of  you  newsy  types  who  wander  down  to  our  dungeon 
in  the  next  few  days  will  likely  be  charged  admission  for 
entrance  ..  .  That  box  over  in  the  corner  is,  believe  it  or  not. 
a  TV  set . . .  Don't  forget  . . .  Starting  time  is  2  p.m.  sharp  . .  . 
That's  in  our  stadium  here  .  . .  JOHN  BROOKS.

taby  Blues  Test  Comets 
Expect  Easy  Win 

THE  VARSITY,  Friday,  October  5,  195G 

Varsity  intermediates  officially  Three 
:k  off  the  intercollegiate  foot- 
11  season  this  afternoon  when 
sy  engage  the  Queen's  Comets 
Kingston.  The  game  will 
u-k  the  coaching  debuts  of 
ad  man  Roy  McMurtry  and 
ckfield   coach   Gerry  Lansky, 

rhe  Baby  Blues  will  sit  out 
proximately  12  men  to  get 
wn  to  the  playing  limit  of  26.

being  my  equal  but  he  is  so 
tody  vein  he  calls  the  forth-

;aky,  ugly  imported  unmen- 
nables  which  he  is  calling  a 
m  of  footballs  which  is  only

ich  is  ending  up  21-3  for  my 
n  dear  Blues  who  of  course 

the  intermediates  will 
probably  be  forced  out  by  in- 
juries. Halfback  Dalt  Coleman 
has  a  pulled  muscle,  end  Harry 
Seegmiller  is  afflicted  with  a 
Charley  horse,  and  fullback  Bill 
Naylor  is  laid  low  with  a  bad 

The  intermediates  were  bol- 
stered during  the  week  by  the 
addition  of  fullback  Don  Cornish 
and  end  Bob  Lee,  both  cuts  from 
the  parent  Blues.  Cornish  adds 
to  an  already  imposing  list  of 
fullbacks  on  the  roster.  A  veter- 
an of  last  season's  intermediate 
co-champions,- Don  is  the  sixth 
centre  half  with  the  Baby  Blues. 
It's  expected  that  he'll  see  a 
lot  of  duty  on  defence  this 
afternoon  while  the  other  new- 
comer, Lee,  will  start  at  end. 

Backfield  coach  Gerry  Lansky 
has  given  the  starting  nod  at 
quarterback  to  Nick  Sopink 
over  Lorne  Forstner.  Rounding 
out  the  backfield  will  be  John 
Spence  at  left  half,  Bill  Trimble 
and  Brian  Astcn  at  full,  and  one 
of  Ian  Knowles,  Don  Borthwick 
and  Bob  Miner  at  right  half.  The 
backfield  will  probably  go  both 
ways  but  McMurty  will  two 
platoon  the  line. 

The  Baby  Blues  have  been 
scrimmaging  among  themselves 
the  past  two  evenings  and  yes 
terday  afternoon  they  ran 
through  a  light  workout.  Fol-

UC  Moves  To  Group  One 
In  Intramural  Grid  League 

Sports  Staff 

'here  will  be  a  very  important 
rting  of  the  Varsity's  Sports 
f  today  in  the  subterranean 
e.  affectionately  called  the  of- 
i  at  l.OO  p.m.  Hie  following  are 
ed  to  attend:  Arnie  Englandcr, 
Liebman,  John  Vojtech,  and  all 
er  gen 1 1  emen  who  ha  ve  b  e  en 
vn  here  before.  This  meeting 
off  prime  importance.  So  be 

The  University  College  Redmen 
will  once  again  play  in  Group 
One  of  the  Interfaculty  Football 
League.  That  was  one  of  the  im- 
portant developments  which 
emerged  from  yesterday's  Intra- 
mural Football  Standing  Com- 

In  other  developments,  the  Trin- 
ity Black  Panthers  exchanged 
places  with  U.C.  and  moved 
down  into  Group  Two.  while  Fo- 
restry announced  that  this  season 
it  had  amalgamated  with  Pharm- 
acy sportswise. 

Harrison  President 

Ken  Harrison  of  University  Col- 
lege was  elected  president  of  the 
committee  by  acclamation.  Brian 
McDonald  of  Dentistry  was  ac- 
claimed vice  president  while  Gord 
Crandcll  of  S.P.S.  became  secre- 

f  With  the  election  of  officials 
completed.  Gord  Crandell  moved 
that  S.  P.  S.  would  once  again  be 
allowed  to  divide  their  two  squads 
up  into  a  year  grouping  with  se- 
cond, third  and  fourth  year  mem- 
bers making  up  the  senior  team 
while  the  frosh  would  be  on  the 
junior  squad.  The  motion  was 
unanimously  adopted. 

Then  Hugh  "Wainwright,  the 
Trinity  representative,  asked  the 
committee  if  his  squad  could  mov< 
down  to  Group  Two,  Wainwright 
reported  that  because  of  Trinity's 
small  team  and  the  long  schedule 
in  the  first  group,  his  team  would 
run  short  of  players  by  playoff 
time.  After  his  plea  to  the  com 
mittee,  he  then  made  the  above 
motion  with  these  two  additions: 
(1)  that  University  College  move 
up  to  Grouo  One  and  (2)  th; 
three  teams  from  Group  One  and 
two  from  Group  Two  enter  thi 
playoffs.  Despite  the  rather  re 
luctant  agreement  to  the  motion 
by  University  College  represent- 
ative, the  motion  was  carried  un- 

Mumblings  ....  The  league  it 
self  gets  under  way  on  October  15 
.  ,  .  .  Last  year's  playoff  system 
will  again  be  in  use  this  year  ,  .  . 
After  some  discussion  it  was  de 
cided  that  last  year's  system  of 
timing  will  be  repeated  this  sea 
son  ....  The  first  half  will  be 
running  time  and  the  last  period 
stop  time  ....  Forestry  announc 
ed  that  this  season,  it  was  uniting 
with  Pharmacy.

DePencier  Pushes  Trinity 
To  Upset  Track  Triumph 
UC  Trackmen  Dethroned 


Individual  stars  were  the  order 
of  the  day  at  the  Intramural 
track  meet  yesterday.  Under  sun- 
ny skies,  Angus  Bruneau.  Skule's 
successor  to  Dick  Harding,  copped 
first  place  in  the  100  .  220  and  440 
yd.  sprints.  Jan  Roos  won  both 
the  mile  and  the  three  mile 
events,  while  Jim  Snider  took  the 
880  yd.  run  and  the  220  low  hurd- 
les. A  surprisingly  strong  Trinity 
squad  dethroned  U.C.  to  capture 
the  aggregate  total  score  with  41 
points  S.P.S.,  mainly  on  the 
strength  of  Bruneau's  showing,

8      THE  VARSITY,  Friday,  October  5,  1956 

Cathie  Breslin  Meets: 

Lily  Barnes 

MUton  Barnes  is  a  man  of 
many  asset's..  A  brilliant  young 
composer,  he  also  divides  his 
talents  as  a  drummer  and  a 
conductor.  Numerous  campus 
jjroductions  have  borne  witness 
to  his  nimble  musical  pen— to 
pame  a  few,  Miss  Julie,  The  Puri- 
fication, and  Brigadoon.  His  car- 
eer is  off  to  a  rousing  start,  and 
his  future  is,  to  all  appearances, 
ii  golden  one. 

But  undoubtedly  the  most 
valuable  of  all  his  assets  is  his 
}ove!y  young  wife,  Lily. 

Lily  is  currently  a  first  year 
Honour  student  at  University 
College,  as  well  as  a  part-time 
Hebrew  teacher.  "I  eventually 
hope  to  do  some  writing,"  Lily 
jdmits,  "and  I  feel  that  I  can't 
do  anything  of  any  size  until  I 
have  some  education.  Fifth  forms 
nren't  quite  enough!" 

Fifth  forms  were,  in  fact,  al- 
most too  much  for  the  ambitious 
Lily,  who  last  year  telescoped 
rive  years  of  high  school  into 
one,  and  managed  to  pass  as 
well.  Lily  and  Milton  were  mar- 
ried three  harried  days  after  her 
exams.  Milton  was  drumming  in 
Spring  Thaw  at  the  time,  and 
after  a  week's  honeymoon,  Lily 
went  off  to  become  head  coun- 
sellor at  an  Ontario  resort.  Two 
weeks  later  Milton  joined  her 
as  a  resort  drummer,  and  Lily  re 
signed  to  "read  and  grow  fat  for 
Hie  rest  of  the  summer." 

This  orderly  chaos  has  marked 
Lily's  fascinating  life,  from  its 
beginning  in  the  Russian  town 
of  Beresniki,  in  the  shadow  of 
\he  Urals,  near  Siberia,  Her 
parents  soon  moved  to  Germany, 
and  it  was  here  that  she  lived 
throughout  the  war.  Her  father 
had  been  killed  early  in  the  war, 
and  she  and  her  mother  lived 
as   Greek  Orthodox  Christians, 

in  constant  danger  of  investiga- 
tion and  discovery  as  Jews. 

At  the  age  of  12,  in  1917, 
Lily  went  to  Israel— alone,  since 
red  tape  kept  her  mother  in 
Germany.  "I  loved  every  minute 
of  it,"  Lily  recalls.  "The  enthu- 
siasm and  spirit  there  at  that 
time  were  something  I  had  never 
met  before  that  time,  or  since." 

Israel  was  at  war  then,  and 
even  the  younger  children  had 
pie-military  training.  Our  young 
Tarzan  took  jiu-jitsu,  and  lived 

many.  A  year  later,  within  the 
space  of  eight  days,  they  packed 
up  and  departed  for  Canada. 

Though  Lily's  mother  was  a 
concert  pianist  by  trade,  she 
came  to  Canada  as  a  seamstress 
— "She  does  sew  her  own  clothes 
beautifully!"  claims  Lily. 

Lily  soon  found  herself  taking 
lecture  notes  for  a  nursery 
school  course,  in  an  intriguing 
combination  of  English,  German 
and  Hebrew.  The  notes  must 
have  improved  with  time,  for  the 
charming  Mrs.  Barnes  speaks 
without  a  trace  of  accent. 

Her  mother  is  married  now 
to  a  Dutchman  "who  manages 
the  biggest  rubber  plantation  in 
Java, ".says  Lily.  "She  has  a  fas- 
cinating home,  and  two  dogs- 
one  was  eaten  by  a  crocodile." 

Lily  and  Milton  plan  to  trip  off 
to  Europe  this  summer  for  a 
session  at  conducting  school  and 
a  reunion  with  Lily's  mother. 
If  the  past  is  any  precedent, 
their  visit  will  be  anything  but

21  Vic  Initiates  Rumble 
Drops  Him  at  Game 


John  Rumble  is  a  Artsman  now. 

The  Engineering  Society  president  was  initiated  into  Vic- 
toria College  Friday  night  when  five  Vic  men  kidnapped  him. 

They  brought  him  before  a  Victoria  Sophomore  court  later 
in  the  evening  along  with  Freshmen  up  on  lesser  charges.  To 
be  tried,  Rumble  was  renamed  Bumble,  and  marie  Honorary 

He  appeared  before  the  court 
trussed  with  ropes,  his  mouth  seal- 
ed with  adhesive  tape,  with  a 
halo  on  and  a  sign  saying  ''John

Pearson  Speaks  Tomorrow 
On  Usefulness  of  NATO 

Canada's  Minister  of  External 
Affairs,  the  Hon.  Lester  B.  Pear- 
son, visits  this  campus  tomorrow 
night  to  speak  at  the  Hart  House 

Mr.  Pearson,  Chancellor  of 
Victoria  College,  will  attend 
Charter  Day  ceremonies  there 

Subject  of  the  debate  is  "NATO 
has  outlived  its  usefulness."  Mr. 
Pearson,  one  of  the  prime  movers 
in  NATO  organization,  is  ex- 
pected to  speak  against  the 

Stan  Schiff,  graduate  of  Tor- 
onto and  veteran  Hart  House 
debater,  will  lead  the  affirma- 
tive. Tim  Armstrong,  also  a 
graduate,  leads  the  opposition. 

Other  speakers  are  Steven 
Lewis  (Affirmative)  and  Martin 
Friedland  (Negative). 

J.  A.  Pierce.  (II  St.  Mike's) 
is  speaker  of  the  house. 

Hart  House  Debates  officials 
predict  a  lively  debate.  Mr. 
Pearson's  affinity  with  NATO 
should  make  his  remarks  parti- 
cularly interesting.  He  has  been 
closely  associated  with  the  in- 
ner workings  of  NATO  since  its 
inception  in  1946.  (The  North 
Atlantic  Treaty  Organization  is 
an  alliance  of  some  thirteen 
European  and  American  nations 
and  is  considered  by  many  as  a 

stepping  stone  to  European 

The  External  Affairs  minister 
has  been  sought  after  for  some 
time  to  address  a  Hart  House 
debate.  His  full  timetable  has 
prevented  him  attending  previ- 
ously. Debates  officials  said  they 
feel  Mr.  Pearson's  presence  will 
draw  a  large  number  of  inter- 
ested undergraduates. 

The  debate  is  open  to  all  male 
students  of  the  university.  It 
opens  at  8  p.m.  in  the  debates 

This  was  Vic's  fifth  kid- 
napping of  the  year.  Wed- 
nesday second  year  Presi- 
dent Doug  Myers  was  held 
six  hours  by  freshmen. 

Three  hours  later,  sopho- 
more girls  retaliated  and 
left  three  t'reshie  Bob 
leaders  near  Markham. 

Vic  released  their  captive  Satur- 
day at  half-time  of  the  Queens- 
Varsity  football  game.  A  panel 
truck  sped  out  onto  the 
field.  Twelve  girls  and  four  Vic 
men  jumped  out  and  pulled  a 
packing  case  out  of  the  truck 
onto  the  field. 

Before  they  finished  en- 
gineers fan  to  rescue  their 
president.  They  pulled  the  case 
apart,  lifted  Rumble  out  and  car- 
ried him  off  the  field.  He  had 
jail-stripe  pyjamas  on,  and  was 
tied  with  50  feet  of  clothesline. 

Several  engineers  threatened 
Toronto  Telegram  photographer 
Dave  Proulx  and  tried  to  get  his 
camera.  There  was  no  other  vio-

Engineers  set  up  a  Retribution 
Committee  this  weekend  to  rr.;iUe 
up  for  their  temporary  defeat.  No

Rumble  was  arraigned  before 
Friday  night's  court  on  eight 
charges.  Among  them: 

That  he  was  president  of  the 
Engineering  Society  —  worst  of 
the  whole  damned  bunch. 

That  he  had  refused  a  gracious 
invitation  to  the  Bob  Apple  Battle, 
as  honorary  Apple.

4  UofT  Students 
Get  $100  Prizes 

Four  University  of  Toronto 
students  have  been  awarded  $100 
prizes  for  high  standing  in 
actuarial  examinations. 

They  are  Carl  Riehm  (II  UC), 
Charles  Walton  (IV  UC),  David 
Brillinger  (II  Vic),  and  Ron  Till. 
The  awards  were-  given  for  the 
highest  standing  in  the  annual 
exams  of  the  Society  of  Actuaries. 


Freshmen  were  invited  last 
night  to  join  the  United  Na- 
tions club  on  the  campus. 

"Our  program  this  year  in- 
cludes discussions,  debates  on 
current  events,  speakers, 
parties  and  dances,"  club  of- 
ficer Hugh  Peacock  said. 

.-A  meeting  to  organize  the 
club  will  be  held  at  Falconer 
Hah  at  4  this  afternoon. 
"Anyone  can  come  to  air  his 
ideas,"  Peacock  said. 

He  said  the  club  would  also 
co-sponsor  a  Caledon  confer- 
ence w  i  t  h  representatives 
from  every  province. 

One  dollar  from  every  student 
is  the  unofficial  campus  >  quota 
set  in  this  year's  United  Appeal 

"A  dollar  from  any  student 
isn't  too  much,"  Student  Service 
Committee  chairman  Carol 
Broadhurst  said  last  night.  "It's 
helping  others  who  don't  have 
our  advantages." 

This  is  the  First  United  Ap- 
peal campaign  on  campus  and 
in  Toronto.  Last  year  the  Stu- 
dents' Administrative  Council 
supported  the  Red  Feather  cam- 
paign. The  campus  fell  far  short 
of  its  $5,000  quota. 

Use  Book  Divide/ids 

Boxes  have  been  set  up  in  the 
bookstore  to  save  students 
trouble  and  bring  money  to  the 
United  Appeal. 

Student  Service  Committee 
chairman  Carol  Broadhurst  asked 
students  last  night  to  'leave  your 
bookstore  cash  register  receipts 

"The  United  Appeal  can  cash 
in  on  your  receipts  jLo  help 
others,"  she  said.  Three  boxes 
were  set  up  in  the  bookstore  last 
week,  one  by  each  cash  register. 

The  United  Appeal  will  get 
approximately  five  per  cent  of 
student  purchases  if  all  cash  re- 
ceipts are  turned  in,  she  said. 
"It's  painless,"  she  said,  "and  I 
yqu  don't  have  to  figure  out  the 
Student  Purchase  Dividend  plan. 
We  will." 

Student  Purchase  Dividend  is 
trial   plan   to  save  students  j 
bout  five  per  cent  on  combined 
textbook    and    stationery  pur- 
chases to  Christmas. 

Another  Convocation  Hall  jazz 
concert  is  planned  this  year  for 
the  United  Appeal,  plus  indivi- 
dual canvassing  and  United  Ap- 
peal drums  around  the  campus. 
If  the  quota  is  met,  the  Univer- 
sity will  more  than  triple  its 
1955  donation  to  around  $11,000. 

"The  United  Appeal  rolls  89 
campaign  drives  into  one,"  Miss 
Broadhurst  said.  "It  almost  ends 
the  competition  for  funds  of 
dozens  of  individual  charities." 

Money  from  the  Appeal  goes 
to  the  Community  Chest,  Red 
Cross,  Canadian  National  Insti 
tute  for  the  Blind,  and  other 

"A  higher  goal  and  lower 
campaign  costs  mean  more 
money  goes  directly  to  charity,"

Rise  in  Grants 

Prime  Minister  St.  Laurent 
said  Sunday  he  favors  an  in- 
crease in  grants  to  Canadian 

The  government  is  trying  to 
formulate  a  new  plan  of  giants 
which  would  not  encroach  on 
provincial  autonomy  and  would 
thus  be  acceptable  to  the  Pro- 
vince of  Quebec,  he  said.  At  pie- 
sent  Quebec  does  not  accept  any 
federal  grants  for  universities. 
The  present  federal  grant  is  50 
cents  per  capita,  or  J8.000.000. 
This  sum  is  distributed  to  the 
provinces  in  proportion  to  their 
population,  and  to  the  universi- 
ties in  proportion  to  their  enrol- 

The  Prime  Minister  was  speak- 
ing  at  the  university  of  Sher- 
brookc  where  he  received  an 
honorary  degree. 

He  emphasized  the  role  of  the 
small  universities  in  teaching  the 
humanities  and  liberal  aits,  and 
said  "through  them  Can;  da  ast 
sures  itself  of  a  place  in  the 
stream  of  democratic  evolution." 

Although  all  preceding  meth- 
ods of  grants  have  not  been 
acceptable  to  Quebec,  the  Prime 
Minister  has  a  new  solution 
which  is  now  under  study. 

"It  would  consist  of  handing 
the  money  voted  by  Pailiament 
to  the  National  Conference  of 
Canadian  Universities,  which 
would  divide  it  up  and  distribute 
it,  he  said.

THE  VARSITY,  Tuesday,  October  9th,  1956 

Orientation  Courses 
Put  Off  Six  Weeks 

Orientation  courses  for  new 
Canadians  at  the  University  have 
been  postponed  six  weeks. 

Fee  for  the  course  has  been 
dropped  from  $15  to  $1. 

The  course  was  started  after  pres- 
sure by  U  of  T  students  Keith 
Spicer  and  Henri  Sueur  this 
spring.  Its  purpose  is  threefold, 
the  U  of  T  Department  of  Exten- 
sion calendar  says: 

"To  acquaint  iNew  Canadians) 
with  the  political  economic  and 
social  structure  of  Canada  as  a 
first  step  to  an  intelligent  and 
enlightened  citizenship.  To  pro- 
vide them  with  the  necessary 
guidance  in  finding  a  place  for 

themselves.  To  enable  them  to 
participate  in  the  various  activities 
of  the  community  in  which  they 

Probable  starting  date  for  the 
course  in  Thursday,  October  15. 
There    are    20    lectures   in  the 


Lectures  will  be  given  on  Can- 
ada's geography,  its  social  and 
cultural  development,  and  on 
citizenship.  About  half  the  lec- 
turers are  professors  at  the  Uni- 
versity, others'  are  experts  and 
businessmen  in  the  city. 

Lectures  planned  in  English  for 
New  Canadians  were  cancelled 
for  lack  of  support. 

Hold  That  Bob ! 


Bigger  and  bloodier  than  ever. 
Victoria  Colleges  annual  Bob 
Apple  bash  Friday  ended  in  a 
decisive  victory  for  the  sophomor- 
es. Led  by  Doug  Myers,  the  se- 
cond year  warded  off  hordes  of 
writhing  freshmen,  armed  with 
plenty  of  vegetable  matter  in 
various  stages  of  decay. 

'  Battalions  of  determined  fresh- 
men descended  upon  the  Vic 
football  field  armed  with  archaic 
shields  —  their  goal,  a  lethal  frosh 
cap  lashed  to  a  greased  pole. 

Tradition  dictates  the  use  of 
a  rope  heaved  from  a  nearby 
building  to  lasso  the  pole.  But 
there  seemed  to  be  some  confusion 
this   year  about  the   purpose  of 

the  hemp  for  skipping  and  a  lug 
of  war  prevailed. 

Tradition  also  predicts  the  ul- 
timate victory  of  the  more  ex- 
perienced second  year  types.  They 
won  this  year,  probably  due  to 
the  moral  support  of  garbage  can 
lids  and  sophomore  girls  making 
a  racket  from  the  sidelines. 

The  absence  of  engineers  in  the 
past  years  has  reduced  the  atmos- 
phere of  wholesale  slaughter  to 
one  of  bloody  brawling.  Lack  of 
spectator  participation  is  strongly 
felt  now  that  mangled  bodies 
manage  to  crawl  off  the  field 
without  having  to  be  carried. 

Only  twice  has  the  trophy  been 
captured,  once  by  the  engineers 
and  in  1946  by  a  copious  and  en- 
ergetic group  of  Vic  freshmen. 

Vic  Captures 

(Continued  from  Page  U 

That  he  had  never  taken  out 
Victoria  girls. 

Presecutor  Doug  Myers  (II  Vict 
interpreted  Rumble's  gestures  as 
guilty  pleas  on  all  eight  counts. 
Rumble  was  tied,  in  pyjamas,  and 
'  his  mouth  was  sealed  with  ad- 
hesive tape. 

Engineers  in  the  crowd  made 
no  move  to  help  him,  but  or- 
ganized a  search  party  of  60  which 
stormed  Vic  men's  residences  at 
1  a.m.  Saturday. 

Rumble  described  his  captivity 
as  20  hours  of  hell  and  brain- 
'  washing.'  His  captors  said  he  had 
eaten  as  much  as  they  had.  They 
said  he  constantly  tried  to  escape. 

He  was  captured  at  7.15  Friday 
night  on  St.  George,  on  his  way 

to  the  Reference  Library.  A 
blanket  was  put  over  his  head 
and  he  was  taken  to  a  house  in 
Forest  Hill. 

After  the  trial,  he  was  taken  to 
a  farm  north  of  Toronto,  and  lay 
on  a  cot  all  night  surrounded  by 
five  gaolers. 

The  Vic  men  phoned  engineers 
for  reaction  to  their  president's 
capture.  "Well  you  got  him,  just 
keep  him."  was  one  reply. 

In  the  morning  he  was  moved 
to  a  house  in  West  Toronto.  He 
stayed  there  until  shortly  before 
the  football  game. 

Victoria  threatens  more.  "This 
is  the  first  of  a  chain  of  efforts 
to  embarrass  *the  engineers,"  a 
VCU  executive  said  last  night. 
The  campus  is  dead,"  he  said. 

Cathie  Breslin  Meets: 

James  Kettlewell 

The  days  of  doubloons  and 
pieces,  of  eight  are  dead.  The 
pirates  of  Penzance  or  Peter  Pan 
are  our  best  excuse  for  a  modern 
Bluebeard,  and  only  politicians 
are  left  to  walk  the  plank.  In 
fact,  the  only  real  treasure- 
hunter  -of  our  acquaintance  is  a 
young  Art  and  Archaeology  lec- 
turer named  James  Kettlewell. 

The  treasure  in  this  case  con- 
sists of  "undiscovered  masters", 
unsigned  and  unrecognized  paint- 
ings by  the  great  men  of  art. 
"There's  nothing  more  exciting 
than  buying  pictures,"  Mr.  Ket- 
tlewell claims.  "Of  course,  every- 
one is  excited  at  the  idea  of 
picking  up  a  painting  worth  a 
fortune  for  a  couple  of  dollars. 
But  there's  also  a  great  deal  of 
fun  in  owning  a  really  valuable 
work  of  art." 

Mr.  Kettlewell  ought  to  know; 
together  with  his  young  wifs 
Lucy,  he  has  picked  up  a  num- 
ber of  bargains.  "Our  only  vice 
is  collecting,"  he  says,  '-but  for 
that  we  have  an  irrational  bug." 
The  prize  of  their,  collection  is 
a  drawing,  believed  to  be  an  un- 
discovered Michaelangelo,  and  an 
extremely  important  work  in  the 
history  of  art. 

If  it  is  finally  accepted  by 
art  scholars  as  a  true  Michaelan- 
gelo, the  drawing  will  be  valued 
in  the  neighborhood  of  550,000. 
Mr.  Kettlewell  bought  it  at  a 
London  auction,  in  a  folio  along 
with  thirty  other  seventeenth 
and  eighteenth  century  drawings, 
for  sixteen  guineas,  (or  $48.) 

"There  is  a  catch,  of  course," 
admits  Mr.  Kettlewell.  "You  have

and  a  small  seventeenth  century

became  immersed  in  the  fine  arts 
department,  and  the  Fogg  Mus- 
eum. He  was  made  assistant  oj 
the  Print  Room,  and  became 
associated  with  Dr.  Jacob  Rosen- 
burg,  "an  art  expert  par  excel, 
lence."  He  says.  "I  had'  always 
fiddled  around  with  art,  but  be. 
fore  this.  I  didn't  know  anything 
at  all." 

We  were  interested  to  know 
how  anyone  learns  enough  to 
spot  a  secret  Michaelangelo. 
"Well,  the  main  way  to  pick  it 
up,"  explained  Mr.  Kettlewell, 
"is  by  constantly  working  at  it, 
looking  at  an  infinite  number  of: 
pictures— great  ones  and  junky! 
ones  too — memorizing  the  styles 
and  techniques.  You  have  toi 
comb  art  galleries,  antique  shops i 

to  be  able  to  spot  an  original 
which,  for  some  reason  or  other, 
has  slipped  through  the  hands  of 
the  connoisseurs.  And  even  when 
you  do  get  one,  it  takes  a  long 
time  for  a  painting  to  he  recog- 
nized and  find  its  value.  You 
couldn't  peddle  it  for  many 

The  Michaelangelo  (?)  is  now 
on  loan  to  the  Fogg  Art  Museum 
of  Cambridge.  But  hung  around 
the  small,  humble  Toronto  apart- 
ment of  the  Kettlewells  is  more 
of  their  collection — a  seventeenth 
century  Dutch  interior  in  oils, 
"which  is  definitely  Ostrade",  an 
early  eighteenth  century  Italian 
I  Venetian  "by  Ricci — who  is  more

Their  collection  also  includes  a 
large  and  formidable  reproduc- 
tion of  an  Iroquois  mask,  and  a 
long,  fantastic  robe,  "an  eight- 
eenth century  religious  garment 
— Albanian.  Islamic.  Turkish  or 

So  much  for  the  works  that 
are  in  the  Kettlewell  collection; 
on  the  subject  of  those  that 
aren't,  Mr.  Kettlewell  flinches. 
"We've  missed  a  horrible  num- 
ber of  great  paintings.  We  had 
to  let  a  magnificent  Poussin  go 
by  for  a  few  dollars  once  because 
we  quite  literally  didn't  have  a 
cent."  he  painfully  recalls.  "And 
I  once  lost  a  bid  for  a  Fragonard 
by  a  pound." 

The  enterprising  Mr.  Kettle- 
well originated  in  Libertyville, 
Illinois — the  home  of  Stevenson 
and  Marlon  Brando.  "In  fact, 
Stevenson's  dalmatiari,  Prince 
Arthur,  is  one  of  my  puppies, 
He  began  courting  Lucy  when 
they  were  sophomores  in  high 
school,  and  a  month  before  he 
graduated  from  college  in  1952, 
they  were  married. 

But  on  the  subject  of  his  better 
half,  one  might  well  be  referring 
to  his  twin  brother,  John,  his 
"mirror  image,"  who  is  now  an 
Episcopalian  minister  in  New 
York.  The  Kettlewelt's  went  to 
Harvard  because  a  friend  had 
recommended  it  as  a  great 
school.  "Besides,  Harvard  looks 
deeper  than  the  face  of  things. 
And  on  the  surface,  neither  my 
brother  nor  myself  looked  so  hot." 
At    Harvard,    Mr.  Kettlewell 

and  junk  shops — you  have  to 
learn  the  artist's  handwriting- 
how  he  twirls  his  brush,  how  he 
composes — everything,  until  you 
can  recognize  it  like  the  face 
of  a  Chinaman^' 

After  graduating  "magna  cum 
laude"  from  Harvard,  Mr.  Ket- 
tlewell stayed  on  for  two  years 
as  an  M.A.  candidate  and  a 
teaching  fellow.  Then  he  was  oft 
to  England  on  a  Fullbright  schol- 
arship, to  study  at  the  Courtauld 
Institute  of  London.  It  was  here 
that  he  and  Lucy  had  their  field 
day  in  collecting. 

"England  is  definitely  thai 
place  to  buy  now,"  Mr.  Kettle- 
well asserts.  "You  can  alwayi 
find  sometlring  piled  in  the  cor- 
ners of  any  store.  In  France, 
they  think  a  thing  is  worth  twice 
its  value,  and  in  Toronto,  a  real 
honest  to  God  genuine  hand- 
painted  original  picture  will 
bring  "an  astronomical  price  " 

The  Kettlewells  have  lived  lit 
Toronto  for  '  a  year,  and  hava 
enjoyed  it  immensely.  In  addi- 
tion to  their  paintings,  they  have 
a  seven-months  old  son  named 
John  Jepson,  who  is  fed  exclu' 
sively  on  vitamins.  Mr.  Kettle1 
well's  talents  include  playing  th( 
recorder  and  guitar;  he  i3 
equally  adept  at  unloading 
freight  cars  and  shovelling  ce' 
ment.  His  wife  claims  that  .

Walt  Kelly  wrote  me  a  splen-

"No  advice  card,''  the  voiced 
said,  "'no  buttons." 

I  carefully  explained  that  ihey 
were  just  innocent  buttons  and 
that  I  didn't  really  need  tod 
much  advice. 

"We  can't  give  anything  out 
without  an  advice  card."

I  asked  "and  you  could  give  me

All-Vareily  R^vue  Director  Curt 
Reis  said  last  night  he  is  lookinj 
for  600  people. 

The  AVR.  revived  after  a  four 
year  lapse,  is  to  be  Finian's' Rain- 
bow a  19-17  Broadway  hit.  Reis 
wants  his  gallant  600  by  October 
22nd  the  starting  date  for  casting 
of  the  show.  Tne  total  company  of 
Finian's  Rainbow  will  be  118 
people  with  a  cast  of  52.  he  said.

best  campus  talent  for  casting". 
Reis  sajd.  This  AVR  will  operate 
on  a  budget  of  close  to  $4,000. 

A  24  piece  orchestra  is  planned. 
"The  finest  available  musicians 
are  being  sought  throughout  the 
campus  and  since  the  group  will 
include  almost  every  instrument 
full  campus  representation  is  our 
aim,''  Reis  said. 

The  customs  office  sent  me  an 
advice  card.  Apparently  (I  say 
apparently  because  I've  never 
seen  it)  the  advice  card  told  me 
how  to  go  about  getting  I  he 
buttons  out  of  incarceration.  It 
has  something  to  do  with 
political  skulduggery,  or  adver- 
tising methods,  or  something, 
but  anyway  they're  locked  up 
tighter  than  Edwin  Alonzo 

I  telephoned  the  customs  of-

by  a  gruff  civil  (Civil  Service

4      THE  VARSITY.  Tuesday,  October  9th,  1956 


What  bores  we  all  are! 

University  students  make  up  a  uniquely  colorful 
population  segment  in  very  nearly  every  other  nation 
in  the  world. 

In  the  United  States  they  have  been  responsible 
■for  the  development  of  everything  from  coonskin 
coats  and  Bearcat  roadsters  to  button-down -shirts, 
pep  rallies  and  the  rah-rah  concept. 

Right  or  wrong  politically,  students  have  led— not 
taken  part  in,  but  led— demonstrations  in  Ireland, 
Cyprus,  Poland,  Japan,  Egypt  and  Algeria. 
'  Scottish  students  stole  the  Stone  of  Scone. 

The  ever-controversial  Oxford  group  of  intellec- 
tuals grew  out  of  an  undergraduate  debating  society. 

But  in  Canada  we  are  afraid  of  our  own  opinions. 
Our  president,  whose  position  would  seem  more  con- 
ducive to  avoiding  displays  of  spunk  than  generating 
them,  not  so  long  ago  called  for  more  individualism 
on  the  Canadian  campus. 

Our  student  government  —  theoretically  a  sound- 
ing board  for  undergraduate  opinion  —  is  in  fact,  a 
most  anemic  and  lacklustre  affair. 

Last  year's  mock  parliament  illustrated  the  con- 
tempt students  of  this  university  hold  for  democracy 
as  it  is  practiced  in  Canada— and  what  they  are  willing 
to  do  about  it. 

At  football  games,  where  if  it  is  to  appear  any- 
where our  color  will  come  through,  our  lack  of  a 
sense  of  fun  is  blatantly  obvious.  Our  cheerleaders, 
some  of  the  prettiest  girls  on  this  campus,  are  bundled 
in  shapeless  blazers.  The  only  spirit  involved  in  our 
cheers  is  in  a  bottle,  waved  in  the  hand  of  a  solo 

The  answer,  as  it  will  be  given  —  yawningly  —  to 
this  editorial,  is,  of  course,  Toronto's  maturity.  Stu- 
dents of  our  university,  it  will  be  said,  are  above  any 
sort  of  juvenile  exhibitionism. 

But  we  shouldn't  be.  In  this  vastly  monotonous 
world,  it  is  the  duty,  not  the  right,  of  the  undergrad- 
uate to  have  a  good  time. 


Fortunately,  there  are  a  few  students  at  this  uni- 
versity' who  are  becoming  bored  with  being  bores 
and  are  doing  something  about  it. 

Within  the  past  four  days,  two  incidents  that 
prove  there  is  a  small  splash  of  color  on  our  otherwise 
drab  appearance  have  reached  the  pages  of  the  Var- 
sity. Some  men  of  Victoria  College  spirited  away  the 
president  of  the  Engineering  Society,  initiated  him  as 
an  "Honorary  Artsman",  hid  him  overnight,  and 
dumped  him  ceremoniously  in  the  middle  of  Varsity 
Stadium  '  between  the  halves  of  Saturday's  football 
game.  Last  week,  several  enterprising  engineers 
erected  our  long-lost  bulletin  board,  facetiously  defy- 
ing the  red  tape  of  our  students'  council. 

Both  these  groups  deserve  congratulations.  They 
have  given  us  opportunity  to  smile.- 

And  most  noteworthy  is  the  way  both  endeav- 
ours were  carried  out. 

In  the  kidnapping  episode,  we  have  been  assur- 
ed, everyone  thoroughly  enjoyed  himself.  The  spirit 
that  inspired  the  event  caught  even  its  victims  and  ■ 
turned  the  incident  into  a  rollicking  affair. 

Construction  of  the  bulletin  board  was  delicately 
timed.  In  the  face  of  the  apparent  futility  of  our  S.A.C. 
it  became  a  sardonic  comment  on  red  tape  as  much  as 
it  was  an  engineering  prank. 

Anxious  as  we  are  to  see  this  feeling  of  fun  in- 
spire more  such  happenings  on  our  campus,  we 
would  suggest  to  any  future  perpetrators  that  they 
follow  the  example  of  Vic  and  the  engineers. 

No  one  was  hurt;  no  damage  was  done;  no  one's 
personal  dignity  suffered. 

Even  an  artist  applying  color  to  a  picture  does  it 
judiciously  and  in  good  taste. 

Toronto's  Stand  On  .  .  . 


At  the  National  Federeation  of  Canadian  University  Stu- 
dents convention  in  Montreal  this  week,  External  Affairs  Com- 
missioner Gerry  Helleiner,  S.A.C.  President  Gordon  Forstner 
and  Vice-President  Flo  Middleton  will  present  a  program  for 
re-organizing  NFCUS.  Printed  below  is  a  copy  of  the  report 
Helleiner  read  to  the  Toronto  council  last  week. 

Last  Spring  the  Students'  Administrative 
Council  of  the  University  of  Toronto  voted 
to  withdraw  from  the  National  Federation  of 
Canadian  University  Students.  Since,  how- 
ever, NFCUS  membership  is  dependent  upon 
payment  of  fees  and  the  NFCUS  fiscal  year 
runs  from  national  conference  to  national 
conference,  Toronto,  by  virtue  of  her  pay- 
ment of  fees  last  year,  remains  a  member  in 
good  standing  until  the  conclusion  of  the 
coming  NFCUS  national  conference  in  Mon- 
treal (October  8-12)  and  is  thus  entitled  to 
send  delegates  to  this  conference. 

This  "Toronto  stand"  will  guide  the  SAC 
throughout  the  year  and,  it  is  hoped,  will 
provide  a  better  means  of  evaluation  of 
NFCUS  for  next  year's  SAC.  Such  a  view- 
point, policy,  or  stand  is  presented  below. 

The  intention  this  fall  is  to  enable  the  SAC 
of  Toronto  to  make  an  intelligent  decision  on 
NFCUS  on  a"  predetermined  and  prepublicized 
basis.  This  is  not  tp  say  that  the  Toronto  dele- 
gates will  carry  to  Montreal  a  rigid  and  in- 
flexible policy  which  NFCUS  must  adopt 
"or  else";  the  policy  is  sufficiently  general  to 
allow  for  compromise.  Toronto  cannot  hope 
to  achieve  all  it  suggests,  nor  can  she  hope 
for  overly  quick  action  on  what  she  achieves, 
but  she  can  hope;  in"  fact  confidently  expect, 
that  her  delegates  will  be  able  to  judge  the 
trend  of  NFCUS  action  and  thought  at  the 
conference  sufficiently"  well  to  advise  the  SAC 
on  the  basis  of  the  "Toronto  stand"  to  act 
in  one  way  or  another.  The  SAC  will  then  vote 
either  to  endorse  last  , year's  decision  to  with- 
draw or  to  rejoin  the  NFCUSl  Here,  then, 
follows  the  NFCUS  policy  of  this  year's  SAC. 

The  constitution  of  NFCUS  states  its  pur- 
pose thus:  "To  promote,  in  every  way  possible 
a  better  understanding  among  all  Canadian 
students,  a  greater  degree  of  co-operation  and 
correlation  among  all  Canadian  Universities, 
for  effective  promotion  of  student  interests 
and  to  provide  a  means  of  developing  inter- 
national relationships  with  student  groups  in 
other  countries." 

Students'  interests 

The  first  and  last  sections  of  this  purpose 
are  self-explanatory.  The  term,  "co-operation 
and  correlation  among  all  Canadian  Univer- 
sities" can,  for  our  purpose,  be  couple^  with 
"better  understanding  among  all  Canadian 
students"  for  they^  are,  for  all  intents  and 
purposes,  the  same.  The  section  dealing  with 
"student  interests"  is  unfortunately  ambigu- 
ous, for  "student  interests"  may  mean  "things 
in  which  students  are  interested"  (such  as 
art,  photography,  etc-.)  or  it  may  mean,  as  in 
all  probability  it  was  originally  intended  to 
mean,  "things  done  in  the  interests  of  the 

It  is  felt  by  the  SAC  that  the  interests  of 
the  students  (in  the  latter  sense)  would  best 
be  served  by  allowing  NFCUS  to  concentrate 
on  achieving  "better  understanding  among 
all  Canadian  students"  providing  national  re- 
presentation to  and  communications  with 
"student  groups  in  other  countries"  (as 
stated  in  the  purpose)  and  other  groups  with 
which  it  is  desirable  for-  representatives  of 
Canadian  students  to  deal  e.g.  federal  govern- 
ment with  regard  to  bursaries.  These  things 
NFCUS  now  attempts  to  do.  In  recent  years, 
however,  these  aspects  have  been  de-empha- 
sized in  favour  of  "student  interests"  in  the 
other  sense  and  economic  benefits:  something 
had  to  be  done  to  win  the  support  of  the 
individual  student.  In  the  past  there  was  little 
need  to  defend  the  federation;  it  justified  its 
existence  merely  by  existing  and  its  having 
been  set  up  by  individual  student  councils  all 
over  Canada.  Now  it  was  defended  on  the 
basis  of  the  success  of  such  things  as  art 
contests,  photography  contests,  short  story 
contests,  student  discount  service,  national 
magazines,  reduced  life  insurance  rates — con- 
crete matters.  Not  that  there  is  anything 
wrong  with  such  matters— far  from  it.  But, 
and  here  is  the  crux  of  the  matter,  the  NFCUS 
budget  (of  time  and  money)  simply  cannot 
support  a  long  list  of  such  activities  unless 
at  the  expense  of  something  else,  the  some- 
thing else  being  the  "better  understanding" 
and  "representation"  mentioned  earlier.  Since 
some  universities  already  complain  of  the 
weight  of  NFCUS  it  may  safely  be 
assumed  that  the  NFCUS  budget  will  not  be 

Toronto,  therefore,  suggests,  that  NFCUS 
retreat  from  these  time  and  money  consuming 
minor  fields  and  concern  itself  solely  with  the 
aspects  of  its  purpose  with  which  it  was 
originally  intended  to  deal.  The  promotion  of 
•  better  understanding  and  the  provision  for 
student  representation,  both  here  and  abroad, 
are  quite  sufficient  justification  for  NFCUS 

now,  as  they  were  before  the  war.  More  im- 
portant perhaps  |to  the  practically  minded, 
they  are  the  only  activities  which  NFCUS  is 
suited  to  handle  or  capable  of  handling  with 
its  limited  time  and  money.  NFCUS  fmist 
return  to  fewer  things  and  do  those  fewer 
things  well. 

individual  Responsibility 

All  this  is  not  to  say  that  these  newer 
minor  activities  need  be  stopped.  At  present 
individual  member  universities  of  NFCUS 
are  mandated  every  year  to  run  these  activi- 
ties under  the  direction  and  with  the  promo- 
tional help  of  the  national  NFCUS  office. 
Such  universities  could  continue  to  run  these 
affairs,  perhaps  even  with  a  NFCUS  mandate, 
but  without  any  involvement  of  the  national 
office  or  the  conference;  they  will  be  abso- 
lutely responsible  for  the  activity  in  question, 
financially  and  otherwise.  NFCUS  should 
undertake  no  such  activity  itself  unless  it 
meets  the  following  qualifications:

Main  Points  Achieved 

The  two  main  points  which  will  thus  be 
achieved  are  these:  (1)  the  NFCUS  central 
office  will  be  freed  of  a  mass  of  administrative 
time  and  expense  and  will,  therefore,  be  able 
to  concentrate  its  activities  on  a  few  impor- 
tant matters  such  as  lobbying  for  increased 
government  aid  to  students  and  similar  re- 
presentation. (2)  The  NFCUS  national  con- 
ference will  be  freed  of  the  vast  clutter  of 
administrative  detail  which  now  takes  up  the 
entire  time  of  the  conference;  the  conference 
will  now  be  able  to  assume  the  role  for  which 
it  was  originally  intended — a  meeting  place 
for  the  student  leaders  of  the  nation  where 
they  can  discuss  the  problems  of  national 
student  interest  and  so  help  to  achieve  the 
prime  purpose  of  the  federation  —  "better 
undestanding."  (Incidentally,  a  step  along 
this  road  has  been  taken  thi&  year  by  the 
inclusion  of  a  symposium  on  French  Canada's 
place  in  the  future  of  Canada  at  this  year's 
conference;  Toronto  heartily  applauds  this 

What  NFCUS  Should  Be 

What  then  has  actually  been  said?  Nothing 
really  drastic  seems  to  have  been  ■  suggested 
since  most  of  the  current  NFCUS  activities 
will  continue,  if  only  under  the  leadership  of 
someone  else. 

Administrative  time  and  expense  would  be 
saved  at  the  central  office,  the  conference 
would  begin  to  further  understanding  more 
effectively,  representation  of  the  students  of 
Canada  would  be  improved — in  short,  the 
emphasis  of.  NFCUS  activity  would  be  put 
back  where  it  belongs.  The  first  person  who 
brings  this  story  to  the  Varsity  office  today 
will  receive  two  dollars  in  cash.  We  can  stop 
trying  to  make  NFCUS  more  important  and 
powerful  than  it  is;  in  fact  with  individual 
colleges  running  its  activities  (at  most,  under 
NFCUS  auspices)  NFCUS  will  become  a 
looser  federation  than  it  is  today". 

We  can  realize  the  limitations  of  a  national 
federation  of  this  sort  and  allow  it  to  work 
at  the  type  of  activity  for  which  it  is  suited 
and  to  do  its  more  limited  job  well.  We  can 
stop  worrying  about  "in-again,  out-again" 
member  universities  for  presumably  there  can 
be  no  quarrel  over  a  federation  with  such  clear 
and  limited  purposes;  less  will  be  expected  l>ut 
what  is  expected  will  be  obtained.  The  time 
has  come  to  set  NFCUS  back  on  the  only 
road  which  such  a  federation  can  efficiently

Characterization  Forte  Of 
New  Canadian  Novelist 

THE  VARSITY,  Tuesday,  October  9th,  1956 


Carmen  Amaya  and  her  troupe 
of  Spanish  dancers  and  musicians 
came  to  Eaton  Auditorium  last 
Friday  night.  October  5th.  The 
capacity  audience  was  treated 
to  a  pot-pourri  of  dance  and 
song  not  always  recognisable  as 
traditionally  Spanish.  However, 
this  short  coming  was  more  than 
made  up  for  by  the  individual 
performance  of  Miss  Amaya  her- 
self, who  resembles  arid  is  a  full- 
blooded  gypsy.  Throwing  herself 
completely  into  her  numbers,  she 
approached  the  fury  of  a  fighting 
cock  as  she  presented  the  age- 
old  themes  of  love.^hate,  and 

Her  troupe  of  accompanying 
dancers,  lacking  her  tempestuous 
spirit,  were  seen  to  better  ad- 
vantage in  the  more  formal 
movements  of  the  boleros  and 
bolas.  Gogo  Reyes  demonstrated 
particular  technical  skill  in  ballet- 
like movements.  The  evening 
started  somewhat  slowly,  but  the 
pace  and  fire  increased  consider- 
ably with  each  appearance  of 
Miss  Amaya. 

Also  appearing  was  Sabicas, 
billed  as  the  world's  greatest 
flamenco  guitarist.  Despite  this 
somewhat  optimistic  misnomer, 
his  programme  was  of  surprising 
integrity,  happily  ignoring  the 
flamboyant  showpieces  to  include 
guitar  pieces   of  artistic  merit. 

The  flamenco  singing  did  not 
increase  the  audiences  under- 
standing or  liking  for  such  music. 
The  evening  as  a  whole  proved  to 
be  successful,  if  somewhat 
uneven.  James  Dauziel 

Adele  Wiseman's  The  Sacrifice 
(published  by  MacMillans)  is  a 
Canadian  novel  that  does  not  de- 
pend for  its  depth  upon  the  four 
seasons.  Characterization  is  Miss 
Wisemans'  forte.  Her  compas- 
sionate insight  into  the  life  of 
Abraham,  a  God-intoxicated  im- 
migrant, his  family  and  acquaint- 
ances has  the  emotional  impact, 
broad  canvas,  and  rich  humour 
of  novel  in  the  best  league. 

The  milieu  is  only  incidentally 
Winnipeg,  for  so  long  as  men 
cultivate  ideals  in  contention 
with  life's  frustrations  they  will 
recognize  that,  anywhere  on 
earth  "it  is  hard  to  be  a  Jew  — 
harder  to  be  a  human  being." 
Abraham  is  warped  and  tempted 
to  deny  both  God  and  his  own 
ambition  by  the  wanton  massacre 
of  his  sons.  When  Isaac,  his  re- 
maining son  forsakes  his  apostate 
inclinations  and  dies  as  the  con- 
sequence of    an    heroic   act  of 

faith,  Abraham's  conscience  tem- 
porarily convicts  him  of  being 
the  death  of  his  sons. 

Yet,  because  he  is  one  of  "those 
who  felt  that.  With  God's  mercy, 
if  they  stretched  their  bodies  and 
souls  and  created  and  built  and 
grew,  who  knew  what  heights 
they,  or  their  sons,  or  the  sons  of 
their  sons  might  reach."  his  great 
spirit  is  not  marred  by  the 
appearance  of  crime. 

Miss  Wiseman  is  not  afraid  of 
violence  nor  does  her  integration 
of  it  suffer  by  comparison  with 
□oestoevski.  Abraham  "was  not 
afraid  to  climb,  to  soar!  to  walk 
on  the  edge  of  the  precipice"  — 
But'  when  such  a  man  falls  —  a 
lesser  novelist's  form  is  threatened 
by  a  murder,  a  remarkable 
abstraction,  instead  of  cpmpleted 
by  skilfully  motivated  character 
revelation  such  as  this  Sacrifice.

The  Art  Gallery  members  of  Toronto  turned  out  en  masse

Tennessee  Williams'  play,

presented  for  the  second  time 
in  Toronto  by  the  U.C.  Lit.  at 
Hart  House,  November  8,  9, 
Httpf  10.  First  produced  five 
years  ago  in  this  country  by 
Henry  Kaplan,  Summer  and 
Smoke  depicts  the  tragedy  that 
befalls  Alma,  the  daughter  of 
a  small  town  clergyman  when 
she  falls  in  love  with  a  less 
spiritually  minded  young  doc- 
teny  John.  These  two  roles  will

tags  devotedly  around  after  her

country  club. 

The  simplicity  of  the  original 
stage  play  set,  a  two  partitioned 
job  showing  the  schoolmaster's 
homey  quarters,  contrasted  with 
the  pallid  loneliness  of  an  up- 
stairs boys'  school  residence  room, 
have  not  been  improved  upon  in 
the  lavish  additions  that  this 
film  version  sports.  The  bower 
of  bliss  where  Laura,  at  the  con- 
clusion of  the  film,  finds  her 
lonely  schoolboy  lover  contem- 
plating suicide  <a  secluded  woods 
near  the  golfcourse),  seems 
almost  too  conventional.  The 
barriers  overthrown  when  Laura 
simply  walked  upstairs  into  the 
boys'  room  in  the  stage  play  were 
dramaticaly  real  at  the  time.  The 
film  version  lacks  this  final 
punch,  and  what  follows  could  be 
the  ending  to  any  grade  B  ro- 
mantic film. 

This  is  not  to  say  that  Tea  and 
Sympathy'is  a  flop  as  a  film  — 
the  acting  by  Deborah  Kerr,  John 
Kerr  and  Lief  Erickson  is  first ' 
class,  the  script  well  above 
average  in  vitality,  the  emotional 
tenor  heartwarming.  Deborah 
Kerr  plays  a  sentimental  role 
with  a  light  deft  touch,  that 
almost  retrieves  it  from  the 
murky  depths. 

Apart  from  the  change  in  the 
setting  of  the  conclusion,  the  only 
other  major  revision  in  the  film 
is  the  omission  of  the  homosexual 
schoolmaster  in  the  cast,  and  the 
reduction  of  the  accusations 
against  Tom  Lee  to  "sissy"  the

cpntinued  by  giving  a  very  well 
informed  resume  of  modern  art 
theories.  He  said  also  that  while 
the  French  who  were  surround- 
ed in  their  homes  and  everyday 
life  with  beautiful  works  of  art 
often  failed  to  appreciate  these 
Ihings  here  in  Toronto  where 
our  cultural  heritage  is  sparser, 
we  have  taken  the  trouble  to 
collect  and  preserve  what  works 
of  art  we  have  in  art  galleries. 

I  agreed  with  this  —  Toronto 
certainly  has  very  few  things  of 
beauty  and  we  do  hide  any  we 
have  in  galleries.  However  his 
remarks  were  perhaps  not  suited 
entirely  to  the  opening  of  a 
private  collection  of  French  pic-

cent length  of  time  the  audience 
was  finally  satisfied  when  the  '

a  flourish  of  the  Ambassador's 
voice,  and-  they  were  free  to  the

Futility  of  War 

It  has  been  ninety  years  since 
Tolstoy  wrote  his  famous  novel, 
and  it  has  been  translated  into 
nearly  every  language  in  the 
world.  Now  Italy's  Ponti-De 
LaurentiU  film  organization  has 
released  its  $6,000,000  dollar  two- 
years-in-the-making  film  version 
of  War  and  Peace.  A  dozen  top 
flight  stars  and  some  8,000  extras 
do  their  bit  in  this  three  and  a 
half  hour  long  movie,  but  great 
as  it  is,  it  does  not  completely 
capture  the  brilliance  of  Tolstoy's 

For  those  who  have  read  this 
great  novel  it  would  be  senseless 
to  explain  why  the  movie  falls 
short.  For  those  who  have  not 
read  it.  I  can  honestly  say  that 
as  a  film  it  will  be  unsurpassed. 
The  camera  dazzles  the  eye  with 
the  splendour  of  19th  Century 
Russia  from  the  grandeur  of 
Pallaclian  palaces  to  the  bloody 
battlefields   of  Borodino. 

The  story's  emphasis  is  shifted 
away     from     the  philosophic 

queries  'Why  is  war?  Why  do 
men  kill?)  of  Pierre  (Henry 
Fonda)  to  the  romantic  affairs 
of  Natasha  (Audrey  .  Hepburn). 
But  Director  King  Vidor  has 
trained  his  cameras  on  men's 
faces,  thus  achieving  a  visual 
impact  of  war  which  mere  dia- 
logue could  never  hope  to  con- 
vey. In  this  way  he  expresses 
Tolstoy's  paramount  contention 
of  the  "utter  futility  of  war."' 

Fonda  seemed  out  of  his  place 
in  the  early  reels  but  built  slowly 
and  credibly  into  the  stature  of 
his  role.  Audrey  Hepburn  wa.; 
ideal  in  grasping  the  many  emo- 
tions of  a  girl  maturing  in  low 
and  life.  Mel  Ferrer,  although 
more  wooden  than  proud,-  came 
alive  in  his  death  scene.  Oscar 
Homolka  as  the  Russian  general 
and  Herbert  Lorn  as  Napoleon 
gave  startling  performances,  as 
did  John  Mills  in  his  brief  bul 
impressive  appearance  as  a 

Barry  Lipson. 

Seargeant's  Redress 

Private's  Progress,  which  is 
showing  at  the  Towne,  is  one  of 
those  all  too  rare  phenomena  — 
a  pointed,  no  holds  barred  de- 
bunking of  one  of  our  sacred, 
unassailable  institutions.  It  is 
also,  for  the  most  part,  hilarious- 
ly funny. 

A  reluctant,  impractical 
university  student  is  drafted.  He 
fails  an  officers  training  course 
and  promtly  fallsinto  a  unit  that 
seems  to  have  no  reason  for  ex- 
isting,^ commanded  by  a  blust- 
ering, incompetent  officer,  and 
consists  mrinly  of  a  group  of 
highly  accomplished  work  dod- 

Needless  to  say,  our  hero  fits 
quite  naturally  and  happily  info 
these  surroundings,  but  all  good 
things  must  finally  come  to  an 
end,  justice  catches  up  with  him, 
and  he  is  transferred  into  an  in- 
terpreter's course  in  Japanese. 
Finally,  due  to  a  combination  of 
string  pulling  and  misconception 
on  the  part  of  the  authorities 
that  he  has  taken  a  course  in 
German,  he  becomes  involved  in 
a  fantastic  scheme  to  take  stolen 
Italian  art  treasures  from  the 
Germans,  from  which  the  officer 
in  charge  (charmingly  played  by 
Dennis  Price)  has  a  chance  to 
make  a  small  fortune  on  'the 

To  a  certain  extent,  this  film,

brothers,  is  in  the  grand 
tradition  of  some  of  the  Ealirtf.' 
Studios  comedies  —  The  Laven 
der  Hill  Mob  and  The  LadykiLl- 
ers  for  example.  But  Private's 
Progress  is  much  less  warm  than 
these.  All  the  characters  are 
coldly  held  to  the  light  with 
all  their  faults  showing.  None 
of  them  catch  hold  of  the  aud- 
ience's sympathies,  as  the  little 
bank  clerk  in  The  Lavender  Hilt 
Mob  does. 

However,  any  warmth  would 
have  detracted  from  the  subtle 
savagery  of  the  satire,  enhanced 
by  John  Adison's  music  which 
can  best  be  compared  to  one  of 
Evelyn  Waugh's  novels. 

Private's  Progress  has  been 
advertised  as  the  funniest 
comedy  of  the  year.  This  im 
mediately  arouses  scepticism, 
since  a  description  like  this  is 
usually  a  sign  of  desparation  oh 
the  part  of  the  management.  Foi

Mustangs,  lightly  regarded  by 
most  this  year,  could  well  prove 
to  be  a  "sleeper"  in  this  season's

game  at  Little  Stadium  here  to- 

Jin  Stadium 

Little  Stadium,  which  many 
times  has  seen  the  death  of  the 
title,  hopes  of  McGill,  once  again 
proved  a  jinx  fi^W  -for  the  highly- 
rated  Redmen.  who  have  been 
picked  by  experts  as  the  team  $o 
beat  for  the  title.  Many  times  the 
veteran  Redmen  line  was  stopped 
by  the  lighter,  spirited  Mustang 
front  wall  as  time  and  again 
dangerous  McGill  drives '  ground 
to  a  halt  deep  in  Western  territory. 
Throughout  the  game  the  Mus- 
tang defence  stopped  the  Mon- 
ti'ealer's  potent  pass  attack. 

The  Redmen  opened  the  scoring 
late  in  the  second  quarter  when 
David  Langhorne  was  rouged  on 
a  shcrt  kick  by  Jan  Sandzelius. 
The  first  half  ended  with  McGill 
leading  vl-0.  In  the  third  quarter 
the  Mustangs,  sparked  by  two  fine 
passes  by  Sophomore  quarterback. 
Art  Turner,  rolled  99  yards  for  the 
Western  score  and  the  only  touch- 
down of  the  game.  The  final  play 
of  this  series  was  a  Turner  pass 

to  Frank  Loftus  in  the  end  zone. 
The  touchdown  was  not  converted. 
A  McGill  safety  touch  late  in 
third  quarter  completed  the  scor- 
ing. In  the-  last  quarter  McGill 
iried  several  desperation  plays 
but  to  ho  avail.

In  soccer  action  on  the  front 
campus  Saturday  morning  the 
Varsity  senior  and  intermediate 
soccer  teams  posted  double  vic- 
tories over  the  visiting  McMaster 
University  Marauders. 

In  the  first  game,  the  Blue 
Seniors  scored  four  goals  in  the 
first  half  to  take  a  4-0  lead.  They 
came  back  in  the  second  half  to 
add  six  more  goals  to  record  an 
impressive  10-0  win. 

For  the  Blues,  Peret  and  Duncan 
scored  three  goals  each  while 
other  Blue  goals~were  scored  by 
Webb  and  forward  Brian  King  who 
added  two  each. 

Blue  Seconds  scored  a  2-0  win 
jn  the  second  game,  counting  both 
their  goals  in  the  last  half.  Bradien 
and  McKenzie  were  the  marksmen. 


At  press  time  the  story  oh  the 
Intramural  tennis  tourney  ig^a  bit 
vague.  Reports  have  it  that  the 
singles  action  in  the  matches  being 
played  at  the  Toronto  Lawn  Tennis 
Club,  got  as  far  as  Harry  Hall's 
6-2,  4-6,  9-7.  win  over  Justin 

Hall  won  his  way  into  the  play- 
offs with  an  early  win  over 
Barry  Fine,  6-2.  Fine  had  pre- 
viously disposed  of  Dave  Alexand- 
er with  equal  ease  —  6-2,  thereby 
gaining  the  right  to  meet  Hall. 
As  the  scores  indicate  both  the 
Fine- Alexander  and  the  Hall- 
Fine  matches  were  routs.  The 
Berkeley-Hall  competition,  how- 
ever, was  a  real  crowd  please*r.

THE  VARSITY,  Tuesday,  October  9th,  1956

Fo  Give  Gaels  Tie  With  Varsity 


Varsity  Blues  stood  by  helpless  on  Saturday  afternoon  and  watched  victory  bounce 
f nam* their  .grasp  in  the  dying"  seconds  of  a  bitterly-fought  battle  with  Queen's  Golden 
Gael-  *  #  I  Ml  If 

The  visiting  Tricolor  held  the  ball  on  the  Varsity  46  with  the  minute  flag  wavering  to- 
ward* its  jrame-eiuling  plunge.  Varsity  led  7-6  as  Jocko  Thompson  stood  on  the  centre 
stripe  and  hurriedly  lifted  a  desperation  punt  towards  the  Blue  goal-line.  The  Varsity 
safety  men  let  it  drop  in  trout  of  them  and  watched  it  skitter  past>into  the  end  zone.  Rich 
BSthune  finally  trapped  it  but  not  before  it  had  gone  for  78  yards  and  the  tying  point. 

The  storybook  finish  was  typical  of  Queen's-Varsity  battles.  It  was   Thompson  himself 
^Hf  sent  the  Gaels  into  the  playoff  last  year  with  his  dramatic  field  goal.

Thompson's  single  erased  a  su- 
stained fourth-quarter  march  by 
the  Blues.  \vhich*saw  them  start 
at  their  own  15  and  travel  to  the 
Queen's  six  in  19  plays.  It  was 
from  there  that  Ross  Woods  kick- 
ed to  the  deadline  for  Varsity's 
seventh  point. 

The  drive  was  spearheaded  by 
some  brilliant  quarterbacking  by 
young  Larry  Joynt.  The  Baby 
Blue  graduate,  filling  in  for  Ed 
Skrzypek,  injured  late  in  the  first 
half,  was  calm  and  consistent  in 
leading  the  team  downfield.  As 

well  as  guiding  the  march,  he 
carried  himself  for  20  yards  and 
passed  once  for  a  25  yard  gain. 
Stewart  Held 
To  say  that  the  Blues  "had  Ron- 
nie Stewart's  number"  would  be 
to  put  it  mildly.  The  Queen's"'  all- 
time  touchdown  king  was  held  to 
only  31  yards  net  gain  in  19  car- 
ries. His  record  for  the  first  half 
showed  that  he  toted  the  pigskin 
eight  times  for  a  total  one-yard 
loss.  He  took  over  from  John 
Moschelle  at  quarter  back  in 
the   final   30   minutes,   and  his

Kingston  on  Friday  afternoon  by 
trouncing  Queens  Comets  32-13. 

The  Baby  Blues  rolled  to  a  24-0 
half-time  lead,  increased  jt  to  32-0 
early  in  the  second  half,  and  then 
relaxed  while  Queen's  tallied  13

also  added  a  convert.

successes    picked    up  somewhat. 

Stewart  plunged  over  from  th? 
two  for  the  Queen's  touchdown 
near  the  end  of  the  third  quarter. 
A  pair  of  brilliant  runs  by  negro 
Henry  Clarke  set  up  the  major. 
Stewart's  twenty-fifth  since  en- 
rolling at  .the  Kingston  college. 

Thompson's  convert  attempt 
was  blocked  by  Gene  Chorostecki. 
one  of  Varsity's  outstanding  de- 
fensive players  on  the  afternoon's 
play.  Chorostecki  iyas  through 
time  and  again  to  rush  the  kicker 
and  also  blocked  a  field  goal  try 
by  Thompson  in  the  second  frame. 
First  Touchdown 
The  Blues  first  forged  into 
Queen's  territory  midway  through 
the  second  quarter,  and  weren't 
shunted  out  before  they  scored 
their  touchdown.  A  30-yard  pass 
from  Skrzypek  to  Dave  Creswell 
carried  the  play  to  the  Gaels'  20. 
but  Varsity  lost  possession  of  the 
ball  after  failing  to  make  yards. 
Some  brilliant  tackling  by  SJohnny 
Tattle  forced  Thompson  to  kick 
from  well  behind  his  goal-line 
and  Normie  Williams,  the  best 
punt-returner  on  the  field,  carried 
back  to  the  Queen's  24.  Stewart 
intercepted  a  Skrzypek  pass,  but 
the  Tricolor  failed  to  make  yards. 

Al  Riva  ran  the  Gael  punt  back 
to  the  39,  from  where  it  took 
the  Blues  seven  ground  plays  to 
hit  pay  dirt.  Skzypek  plunged 
across  from  the  two  for  the  touch- 

Just  Jots 

Curt  Russell  and  Chorostecki 
were  the  choice  of  the  Varsity 
defensive  players  .  .  .  Russell

in  some  fine  tackling  ....  Both 
Skrzypek  and  Joynt  came  out  of 
the  game  with  injuries  .  .  .  . 
Skrzypek  sustained  a  severe  ankle 
sprain  and  may  be  lost  to  the 
team  for  the  McGill  game  .  .  .  .

Another  chapter  was  added  to  the  "Why  I  Prefer  College  Foot- 
ball" journal  on  Saturday  afternoon  in  Varsity  Stadium.  A  dramatic 
last  minute-single  by  an  old  Varsity  nemesis,  Jocko  Thompson,  gave 
Frank  Tindali's  Golden  Gaels  a  7-7  tie  with  the  Blues.  It  was  a 
climax  reminiscent  of  many  Intercollegiate  battles  of  the  past  few 

First  cm  the  list  is  the  fnntastie  Don  Getty  to  Murray  Hender- 
son pass  that  gave  Western  the  Yates  Cup  back  in  1953. 
Varsity  led  that  game  with  seconds  remaining  when  Getty 
cut  loose  with  a  giant  toss  that  hit  Henderson  in  behind  the 
Blue  defenders,  and  Murray  scooted  all  the  way  *or  the  winning 

And  then  there  was  the  Queen's  heartbreaker  in  1954  that 
allowed  the  Mustangs  to  enter  the  playoff  against  Varsity.  Queen's 
led  in  that  game  18-15  with  the  minute  flag;  down  and  a  desperation 
field  goal  attempted  by  Western  in  the  air  flying  towards  the 
Gaels'  end  zone.  All  Ronnie  Stewart  had  to  do  was  field  the  ball 
and  send  Queen's  into  the  final.  But  the  slippery  pigskin  slithered 
away  and  Western's  Don  Killinger  recovered  to  win  the  ball  game 
and  the  playoff  spot. 

Last  year's  thriller  was  provided  by  the  same  Mr.  Thompson 
who  saved  Saturday's  game  for  the  Tindullmcn.  Jocko  neatly 
booted  a  lost-ininute  field  goal  in  Ricltardson  Memorial  Stadium, 
Kingston,  to  give  his  Gaels  a  spine-tingling  11-10  win  over  the 
Rlues,  and  necessitate,  as  we  In  Toronto  know  only  too  well, 
another  post-season  battle. 

Story  from  McGill  has  it  that  Larry  Sullivan  is  having  one 
dickens  of  a  time  trying  to  get  his  foot  out  of  his  mouth..  It 
slipped  in  there  late  last  week  when  Monsieur  Sullivan,  who.  inci- 
dentally, is  the  coach  of  the  McGill  Redmen,  made  a  comment  to 
the  effect  that  he  thought  the  schedule  was  packed  against  his  . 
Tribe.  Seems  that  Larry  didn't  like  the  way  his  team  had  to  meet 
the  weaker  squads  in  the  League  first  Bnd  face  the  strong-  contender 
at  the  end. 

And  now  that  the  Redmen  have  opened  the  season  with  u 
no ne-too -successful  6-3  loss  to  the  "weak"  Western  .Mustangs, 
the  football  picture  should  be  pretty  testy  up  Montreal  way. 
The  experts  still  figure  McGill  to  top  Varsity  nevt  weekend, 
but  It  looks  like  the  sort  of  game,  when  one  keeps  one  s  money 
in  one's  own  pocket. 

Toronto  Argonauts  very  nearly  upset  the  Hamilton  Tiger-Cats 
yesterday  in  the  Stadium,  and  had  they  done  so,  the  goat  of  the 
o-ame  would  have  been  an  ex-Temple  pal  of  Gus  Braccia. 

Early  in  the  second  half,  after  a  successful  Argo  pass,  the 
hall  scooted  free,  and  Tex  Robinson  recovered  the  fumble.  He 
took  the  opportunity  to  run  67  yards,  the  WRONG  WAV.  ami 
send  his  teamates,  the  Double  Blue,  and  some  ::4.t)O0  fans.  Into 
hysteria.  With  Steve  Oueschuk  barreling  along  behind  trying  to 
direct  his  fellow  T-C  In  the  right  direction,  Robinson  continued 
at  a  merry  clip  towards  his  own  goal  line. 

He  was  finally  stopped,  by  three  Argonauts,  behind  the  line.  It 
was  of  course,  a  Toronto  safety  touch  and  two  points.  Even  when 
the  bewildered  Tex  was  having  the  situation  explained  to  .him.  he 
seemed  unable  to  understand  why  the  scoreboard  had  credited  the 
hosts  with  a  pair  of  counters,  and  not  his  own  Tabbies  with  six. 
A  shake  of  the  paw  to  R.  J.  Gray  and  spouse  .  .  .  They  presented

itrike  in  early  1957  will  be 
irought  up  lo  the  annual  Na- 
ipnal  Federation  of  Canadian 
Jniversity  Students  meeting-  in 
Montreal  by  retiring  President 
Jeter  Martin  (Toronto). 

Delegates  to  the  conference

JFCUS  national  office  in  Ottawa. 
4FCUS  has  had  threats  to  with- 
draw from  universities  with  pro- 
>osed  reforms  at  the  conference. 

"This  may  be  the  Federation's 
ast  conference,"  observer  Alis- 
air  Shearer  from  Ryerson  In- 
;titute  of  Technology  said  last 
light.    He    attended  Monday's 

sessions  and  talked  to  delegates. 

Toronto  has  three  students  at

ning of  the  projected  1960's  plateau.  Released  '  from  the  registrars  office 
yesterday,  the  figures  are  up  seven-and-a-half  per  cent  over  last  year. 

The  increase  brings  total  Toronto  enrolment  to  10,890.  Last  year,  10- 
169  were  registered  in  degree  and  diploma  courses. 

Analysts  are  calling  this  year  the  beginning  of  the  boom.  The  lar?e 
number  of  babies  born  immediately  before  World  War  II  has  forced  a  sig- 
nificant curve  into  the  Canadian  birth  rate.

PAA's  Promise:  Up  Grants 

To  Universities  In  1957 

Dominion  bursaries  are  at  pre- 
sent shared  with  the  provinces 
in  the  Dominion -Provincial  bur- 
sary scheme.  Amounts  are  $250 
for  students  living  at  home  and 
$500  for  students 

The  -Prime  Minister  said  last 
night  he  will  recommend  to 
Parliament  doubling  federal 
grants  to  universities  in  1957— 
if  the  National  Conference  of 
Canadian  Universities  will  dis- 
tribute them. 

Reports  from  presidents  of 
universities  across  the  country 
indicated^  the  NCCA  will  take 

the  job 

U  of  T  President  Sidney  Smith 
said  the  news  was  most  gratify- 
ing. This  is  "indicative  of  the 
size  of  the  problem   that  will 
away   from  confront  the  universities  in  the 
I  next  few  years."

Gzowski  was  chosen  for  the  post 
by  Walt  Kelly,  international 
chairman  of  the  drive.  His  posi- 
tion of  Varsity  editor  may  have 
had  something  to  do  with  his 
selection,  Gzowski  feels.

THE  VAKSITY,  Wednesday,  October  10th,  1956 

unloaded  magazine    CARDS  CUSSING .  CUSTOM 

The  odds  are  about  fi'fteen  hundred  to  one  that 
you  won't  be  interested  in  this  editorial.  It  probably 
doesn't  concern  you  at  all;  but  don't  let  that  stop  you 
from  reading  it,  for  it  illustrates  a  more  general  trend. 

Last  week  we  ran  a  few  thoughts  on  the  establish- 
ment of  a  campus-wide  literary  magazine.  Without 
exception,  the  people  who  talked  to  us  about  that  edi- 
torial thought  it  was  a  good  idea-though  some  of 
them  attributed  more  weight  than  we  had  to  the 
obstacles.  The  point  is,  everyone  agreed  the  magazine 
could  be  and  should  be  published-this  year. 

They  generated,  in  fact,  so  much  typical  under- 
graduate enthusiasm  that  they  talked  about  it  for 
several  minutes,  yawned  and  went  on  to  other  less 
challenging  concepts. 

This  is  an  invitation  to  those  people. 

The  Varsity  will  act  as  a  clearing  centre  for  all  the 
plans  you  have  contributed.  You  may  use  our  office. 
You  may  use  our  typewriters.  You  may  even  use  our 
idea.  All  we  want  is  a  university  magazine.  The  writ- 
ers of  this  campus  need  it. 

Let  us  be  even  more  specific.  This  Thursday  after- 
noon there  will  be  someone  in  The  Varsity  office, 
waiting  for  your  reply. 

At  this  meeting,  we  would  like  to  see  a  delegate 
—he  need  not  be  official— from  every  college  maga- 
zine and  from  every  professional  faculty. 

You  will  not  commit  yourself  to  anything.  It  is 
merely  to  explore  the  idea  further. 

The  next  move  is  up  to  you.

theirs.  Mr.  Pearson's  influence 
has  been  felt  extensively  in  both 
national  and  international  policy. 
This  influences  every  man  and 
woman  on  this  campus. 

Therefore,  we  suggest  that  in 

the  future  any  topic  of  such  vital 
importance  should  be  open  to 
anyone  directly  or  indirectly 
concerned  with  this  University.

What's  wrong  with  the  Varsity 
cheerleaders?  We'll  tell  you. 
They  cater  to  the  South  half  of 
the  Varsity  section.  After  all, 
girls,  the  real  keen  Blues  sup- 
porters are  the  ones  who  are 
interested  enough  to  arrive  ear- 
ly to  get  the  better  seats. 

Our  cheering  section  runs  to 
within  a  few  inches  of  the  50 
yard  line,  so  why  can't  the 
cheerleaders  come  past  the  30- 
yard  line.

Dear  Sir: 

ff  there's  a  "  movie 
called  the  Mountain  on 
at  the  University

your  reviewer  tell  us 
so  in  a  few  sentences 
of  plain  down-to-earth 
English  without  em- 
brangling us  contumel-

Dear  Sir: 

Does  your  Miss 
Tweed  realize  that  the 
language  in  which  she 
writes  such  incompre- 
hensible .rot  was  that 
of  Milton,  of  Shaw,  or 
of  Ogden  Nash?  Cry 
you  craftsmen  of  this 
beloved  language,  and 
turn  in  your  graves,  if 
it  will  ease  your  tor-

this  that  you  have 
labored  so  long?

Victoria  Loses  Williams,  Ebenhardt 
But  Well  Win  at  Least  Two-Coach 

THE  VARSITY,  Wednesday,  October  10thf  1956  3 

P  "Victoria  College,  last  year's 
Mulock  Cup  champions,  will  win 

-at  least  two  games  this  year.*' 
This  claim  is  made  by  their 
coach.  Frank  Ebenhardt.  Eben- 
hardt. who  starred  at  quarter- 
back for  Vic  last  year,  has  had 
a  turnout  of  40  hopefuls  for  the 
last  few  nights,  an  even  mix- 
ture of  veterans  and  rookies. 
From  what  he  has  seen,  coach 
Ebenhardt  feels  that  he  will  have 

K  fast,  spirited  team.  To  use 
these  fast  men  he  plans  a  slight 

s  Variation  of  the  split-T. 

gf  It  appears  that  Vic  still  pos- 
sesses a  fast  backfield;  this  in 
spite  of  the  loss  of  speedy  Norm 
Williams    to   the   Blues.  There 

-still  remains  most  of  last  year's 
backfield,  including  Ron  Ber- 
tram, Paul  Newman,  and  Steve 
Moraiarty.  To  these  have  been 

added  Jerry  Aziz,  formerly 
with  Trinity,  and  Ken  Myers 
from  last  year's  Blues. 

No  Quarterback 

The  coach,  -however,  is  not 
without  his  backfield  problems. 
Vic  lacks  a  quarterback.  Several 
men  have  been  tried  at  the 
position  but  as  yet  no  one  has 
been  assigned  the  job.  Coach 
Ebenhardt  says  that  he  has  re- 
tired from  the  quarterback  job 
but  the  feeling,  around  Vic,  is 
that,  when  the  season  starts, 
Ebenhardt  will  be  found  at  the 
pivot  spot. 

John  Pierson,  line  coach, 
claims  that  this  year's  line  will 
be  heavier  and  faster  than  be- 
fore. Returning  veterans  include 
Jerry  Keshan,  Dick  Green,  Walt 
Bobechko,  and  Jonh  Handiak,  To 
aid  these  have  come  rookies  Paul 

Ellis,  from  U.T.S.,  and  Gerry 
Weatherhead  from  North  Toron- 

With  a  speedy  backfield  and 
line  it  looks  as  though  Vic  will 
be  around  when  the  finals  start 
in  November.  In  fact,  with  such 
speed  as  the  Red  and  Gold 
possess,  the  other  teams  are 
going  to  have  to  move  in  order 
to  keep  Vic  from  running  away.

Landscape  Engineering 
First  For  Skule  Frosh 


This  year,  with  a  minimum  of 
show  and  publicity,  the  engin- 
eers have  successfully  completed 
what  probably  has  been  the  best 
attempt  yet  at  constructive  initi- 
ation. From  Tuesday  till  Thurs- 
day last  week,  750  freshmen 
engineers  .spent  2250  man-hours 
sodding,  regiadtng:  and  tree- 
planting  in  the  city's  High  Park 
in  the  west  end.  Their  efforts 
have  effected  a  handsome  trans- 
formation there. 

John  Rumble,  in  charge  of 
last  year's  precedent  -  setting 
initiations,  is  now  president  of 
the  Engineering  Society.  He  has 
expressed  great  satisfaction  with 
the  enthusiasm  freshmen  have 
displayed  for  the  project,  as  well 
as  for  the  co-operation  which 
the  Society  has  received  from 
the   civic  authorities. 

The  city  provided  work  clothes 
and  transportation  to  and  from 
the  park.  Work  was  conducted 
in  two  shifts  each  day,  from 
9  a.m.  to  12  noon  and  from  2 
p.m.  to  to  5  p.m. 

Thursday, '  the  last  day  of 
work,  Alderman  Edgar  Roxbor- 
ough  representing  Mayor  Phil- 
lips, visited  the  park.  He  esti- 
mated the  freshmen  had  saved 
the  city  a  minimum  of  $7000. 
The  results  of  their  work  dis- 
played painstaking  cave  which 
would  certainly  not  have  been 
duplicated  by  paid  workmen. 

The  first  group  of  engineers 
had  carved  "S.P.S."  in  large 
letters  in  an  area  intended  to 

be  sodded  over.  Now,  at  the 
direction  of  Alderman  Roxbor- 
ough,  the  letters  will  remain  and 
will  be  planted  in  flowers,  to 
be  a  permanent  tribute  to  the 
work  of  the  class  of  6TO. 

A  prize  has  been  awarded  to 
the  groups  which,  in  the  esti' 
mat  ion  of  the  city's  foremen, 
did  the  best  shift's  work.  The 
Wednesday  afternoon  shift,  con- 
sisting of  the  Mining,  Applied 
Geology,  Electrical  and  Mechan- 
ical courses,  won  this  prize. 

A  proposed  study  tour  of  Can- 
ada by  Soviety  students  was 
postponed  by  the  annual  World 
University  Service  of  Canada  as- 
sembly in  Montreal  Saturday. 

The  three-day  assembly  left  ap- 
proval of  the  tour  until  'univer- 
sities across  the  country  are  con- 

At  .the  same  time  it  urged 
greater  Canadian  support  for  in- 

ternational1 projects  and  the  WUS 
international  program  of  action. 

"The  need  of  the  student  gener- 
ation for  more  adequate  and  ef- 
fective higher  education  is  com- 
mon ...  in  all  countries  of  the 
world."  Prof.  John  S.  Morgan  of 
the  University  of  Toronto  said  as 
he  opened  the  meeting. 

The  assembly  resolved  to  invite

Butts  Burn  Records 
House  Bans  Smokes 

Hart  House  Record  Room  Com- 
mittee has  banned  smoking  in 
the  Record  Room.  Inspection  of 
the  records  during  the  summer 
showed  numerous  traces  of 
cigarette  ash  and  burn  marks. 
On  one  occasion,  a  committee 
member  was  in  the  room  and 
noticed  an  unattended  butt  burn- 
ing its  way'  into  a  record  album. 

Other  rules  may  have  to  be 
instituted  if  members  continue 
failing  to  observe  common  safe- 
guards when  handling  LP  re- 
cords, committee  member  Chris 
Wilson  said. 

The  whole  collection  of  some 
3,000  works  was  re-arranged 
during  the  slimmer.  Much  o'f  the 
good  work  is  being  undone  by 
members  not  returning  records 
to  their  proper  places  or  so  that 
the  discriptive  titles  printed  on 
the  backs  are  not  visible,  Wil- 
son said. 

Members'  reaction  to  the  No 
Smoking  rule  depends  on  whe- 
ther, they  smoke  or  not,  though 
some  smokers  have  said  that 
thev  would  rather  have  the  re- 

cords than  their  cigarettes,  he 
said.  One  said  that  he  came  to 
listen  to  music,  and  wished  there 
would  be  a  No  Talking  rule  as 

ference  to   Canada,   held  befo 
in  Asia,  the  United  States 

It  approved  support  for  project, 
in  six  countries  and  set  a  targ« 
of  $20,000  to  -raise  in  Canadian 
universities  this  year.  WUSC  is

bankrupt  the  organization-  before 
its  first  concert,  October  28.  ,: 
"This  is  HHOA'S  last  year," 
chairman  Chris  Wilson  said  last 
night,  "as  far  as  I'm  concerned 
It's  not  fair  to  hand  on  a  sick 

Memberships  this  year  amount 
to  little  more  than  $600,  one  sixth 
of  the  S3.600  HHOA  requires  to 
finish  this  season  and  start  again 
next  September. 

'Toronto's  blue  laws  are  still 
hampering  the  Associates,  Wilson 
■  said.  Last  year  the  Lord's  Day 
Alliance  cracked  down  on  HHOA 
and  threatened  to  prosecute  if  con- 
certs with  paid  attendance  were 
staged  Sunday  nights.  Public 
opinion  forced  the  LDA  to  back 

"Funds  available  for  publicity 
are  almost  exhausted,"  Wilson  said. 
The  Associates'  executive  of  five 
has  .sold  103  memberships  to  stu- 
dents, staff  and  outsiders,  and 

"No  one  is  coming  to  buy  tick- 
ets." Wilson  "said.  "Students  expect 
us  to  come  to  them.  We  need  five 
more  students  on  the  executive  to 
even  start  that." 

"It's  impossible  for  a  handful  of 
students  to  fight  against  the  apathy 
of  11,000  others."

'World  Still  Dangerous' 
Pearson  Tells  Students 
Carries  Vote  203-65 

The  Hon.  Lester  B.  Pearson 
carri  ed  the  largest  Hart  House 
debate  crowd  since  1949  to  an- 
overwhelming  endorsement  of  his 
pet.  NATO,  last  night. 

The  resolution:  "that  NATO  has 
outlived  its  usefulness."  was  de- 
feated 203-65  after  Mr.  Pearson 
delivered  his  speech. 

"It's  good  to  be  back,"  said  the 
Minister  of  External  Affairs,  "and 
it's  good  to  be  in  opposition  again, 
Mr.  Pearson  —  a  graduate  of  Vic- 
toria College  is  at  the  university 

PCs  Behind 

John  Diefenbaker -was  strong- 
ly endorsed  for  party  leader  by 
the  university  Progressive  Con- 
servative club  last  night. 

After  considering  the  prob- 
able candidates  for  leadership, 
the  club  released  a  statement 
that  "Mr.  Diefenbaker  above 
all  others  possesses  the  quali- 
ties needed  for  this  post." 

John  Le  Claire,  president  of 
the  campus  club,  said  Mr.  Dief- 
enbaker was  "a  man  who  puts 
Canada  and  the  welfare  of  its 
people  above  all  else." 

The  club  also  chose  two  dele- 
gates for  the  University  Con- 
servative Clubs'  national  con- 
vention in  Ottawa. 


to  attend  Vic.  Charter  Day  cere- 
monies today. 

"The  world  is  still  a  dangerous 
place,"  Mr.  Pearson  said  in  sum- 
ming up  the  debate.  "Perhaps 
Soviet  tactics,  but  not  strategy 
have  changed."  Mr.  Pearson  stres- 
sed that  if  we  had  had  such  an 
organ  izafion  as  NATO  in  1 939 
there  might  not  have  been  a  World 
War  II. 

Stan  Schniff  <Grad.)  moving  the 
motion,  said:  "NATO  is  militarily 
impractical,  politically  unfeasible 
and  a  poor  instrument  for  bringing 
economic  assistance  to  under- 
developed countries." 

The  next  war  would  not  be 
fought  by  "great  land-moving 
armies,  but  by  Atomic  bombs 
dropped  on  Leningrad,  London 
New  York  and  Canada,"  Schiff 
said.  "Our  whole  concept  of  war 
must  change.  The  former  sneers 
of  Russia's  leaders  have  been  re- 
placed by .  smiles."  Something 
other  than  the  esesntial  military 
organization  of  NATO  is  needed, 
Mr.  Schiff  said. 

"I^ATO,"  Mr.  Schiff  said,  "As 
the  wrong  instrument,  in  the 
wrong  place,  at  the  wrong  time." 

Tim  Armstrong  (Gradl  spoke 
for  the  negative,  ."Soviet  expansion 
in  western  Europe  is  possible,"  he 
said.  He  felt  that  any  apparent 
change  in  the  Soviet  attitude  wa: 
no  reason  to  abandon  our  defenses. 

He  dismissed  as  ridiculous  the 

idea  that  the  U.S.  Secretary  of 
State  should  bring  his  "massive 
retaliation"  into  play  for  every 
threat  of  war. 

In  a  direct  reference  to  Mr. 
Pearson  and  his  equivalents  from 
Norway  and  Italy.  Steve  Lewis,  (II 
U.C.)  said  that  neither  "the  three 

ise  men  nor  the  three  blind  mice 
could  bring  about  what  was  need- 
ed for  NATO,  and  that  is  resurrec- 

He  stressed  that  "NATO  would 
not  function  a  sa  purely  political 
entity  and  this  is  illustrated  by  the 
extreme  bitterness  existing  be- 
tween Turkey  and  Greece  over 

"NATO,"  Lewis  said,  "should  not 
be  replaced  tomorrow  but  in  the 
near  future." 

This  remark  was  attacked  by 
Martin  Friedland  (II  Law)  who 
said  it  was  an  ommission  lhat 
NATO  had  not  outlived  its  pur- 
pose. "We  do  not  throw  away  our 
winter  coat  when  spring  come?." 
If  NATO  is  scrapped  a  substitute 
is  mandatory,  he  said. 

NATO  will  change  its  orgai  i/..)-

Farewell  French  — 

Aren't  Textbooks  Useful? 

Of  all  the  textbooks  that  I  have 
used  in  the  past  few'  years,  I 
seem  to  have  kept  almost  all  of 
them.  When  others  are  out  en- 
ergetically turning  their  tomes 
into  hard  cash.  I  merely  relegate 
mine  to  the  nether  regions  of  my 
bookshelf  and  promptly  forget 
about  them.  The  reason  that  I 
have  not  succumbed  to  the  mater- 
ialistic urge  to  part  with  these 
texts  is  due  mainly.I  think,  to 
the  secretly  cherished  half  hope 
that  someday  (It  seems  mad  to 
say  it)  these  books  may  be  use- 
ful, and  the  knowledge  once 
wrested  from  their  pages  to  pass 
examinations  may  one  day  come 
into  its  own  again  in  real  life. 

Take  that  trigonometry  book  for 
instance.  Go  on  take  it,  there's 
no  charge  whatever.  Supposing 
just  supposing  that  one  day  I 
should  be  walking  along  the 
street,  quite  casually,  minding  my 
own  business,  when  suddenly  I 
should  see  a  ladder,  yes,  a  ladder 
leaning  up  against  a  wall.  What 
a  splendid  opportunity!  It  would 
be  a  trigonometric  ladder  of 
course,  with  a  man  weighing  150

Customs  swung  into  high  gea 

Nearly  200  advice  cards — all  ad- 
dressed to  customs  officials — are 
on  file  in  the  office. 

Last  night  the  campaign  took  to 
the  airways,  as  Varsity  Editor  Pete 
Gzowski.  campus  chairman  of  the 
Pogo  drive,  appealed  over  CJBC 
for  provincial-wide  contributions. 

Mimeographed  advice  card 
forms  have  been  distributed 
through  this  university.  Students 
of  other  Ontario  colleges  have 
been  asked  to  write  in. 

"This  will  be  the  greatest  write- 
in  vote  since  the  New  Hampshire 
election,"  Gzowski  said.  "And  the 
election  hasn't  even  started  yet. 

Gowski's  radio  appearance  was 
on  Ted  Schafcr's  program  "On 
Campus."  i 


lb.  just  about  to  climb  it.  The 
coefficient  of  friction  between  the 
ladder  and  the  ground  would  be 
Vz  and  between  the  ladder  and 
the  wall  %,  With  the  man  stand- 
ing halfway  up  the  25  ft.  ladder 
and  estimating  the  angle  of  the 
ladder  with  the  wall  at  35  degrees, 
I  could  easily  calculate  in  an  hour 
or  two  with  my  trig  book  just 
how  hard  I  would  have  to  pull 
on  the  second  rung  of  the  ladder 
(assuming  the  rungs  are  1ft,  apart) 
in  order  to  upset  it  and  break  the 
man's  neck.  It  just  goes  to  show 
you  what  you  can  get  out  of  a 
book  like  that. 

Right  next  to  the  trigonometry 
book  on  my  shelf  is  my  old  high 
school  geometry  book.  While  I 
admit  it  is  foolish  to  think  that  it 
could  ever  be  nearly  as  useful 
as  my  trigonometry  book,  I  do 
sometimes  wonder  about  the  day 
when  I  will  finally  meet  up  with 
some  congruent  triangles.  I  am 
convinced  of  their  existence,  and 
I  must  say  that  I  became  attach- 
ed, through  my  high  school  years, 
to  ABC  and  his  inseparable  com- 
panion, DEF. 

One  day  I  am  sure.  I  shall  find 
them.  There  they  will  be,  sitting 
in  the  arbor  room,  sipping  a 
chocolate  malted  from  straws  of 
equal  length  equidistant  from 
their  acute  angles,  such  that  the 
I  sides*  opposite  their  smallest  angl- 
es when  produced  will  intersect 
at  a  point  halfway  along  the  line 
joining  their  centroids.  It  will  be 
quite  a  sight!  I  will  approach 
them.  "Do  you  swear,"  I  will  say, 
"that  the  two  sides  and  contained 
angle  of  you,  ABC,  are  respective- 
ly equal  to  the  two  sides  and  con- 
tained angle  of  ydu,  DEF?"  "Yes," 
they  "will  reply  in  that  calm 
mathematical  way  of  theirs.  "I 
herewith  pronounce  you  congru- 
ent, and  wish  you  lots  of  corol- 
laries," I  will  say,  leaning  back 
with  the  satisfaction  one  gets 
from  a  job  well  done.  And  if  I 
had  my  geomtry  book  I  could 
prove  it,  too. 

And  then,  of  course,  there  is 
my  algebra  book.  It  is  bound  to 
be  useful.  One  evening,  not  too 
far  distant  I  am  sure,  there  will 
be  a  ring  at  the  doorbell.  It  may 
be  a  friend,  or  even  a  complete 
stranger,  but  when  I  open  the 
door  he  will  say  "I  say  old  boy, 
sorry  to  trouble  you  at  night 
like  this,  but  could  you  tell  me 
how  many  ways  I  can  permute 
the  letters  of  the  word  anttdis- 
establishmentarlanism  assuming 
that  the  position  of  the  vowels 
remains  constant?"  "Certainly,"  I 
will  say,  "just  a  minute  while  I 
get  my  algebra  book." 

Math  books  are  not  the  only

Skule  Against 
Vic  in  Appeal 

In  retaliation  for  the  "brutal 
treatment"  of  its  president  John 
Rumble,  the  Engineering  Society 
has  challenged  Victoria  ColkgL-  for 
United  Appeal  donations. 

At  the  Society  meeting  Tuesday 
night  Don  Elliot,  head  of  th-?  SPS 
United  Appeal  campaign,  predicted 
that  the  engineers  would  top  Vic 
in  the  drive.  With  that  the  tight 
was  on. 

Vic  president*  Rich  Newman, 
supported  Vic  last  night,  and  pie- 
dieted  defeat  for  the  enginei-rs. 
"Victoria,"  he  said,  "is  smaller  and 
more  united,  and  they  realize  the 
value  of  the  work  involved." 

Rumble,  when  questioned,  said 
he  did  not  know  anything  about 
the  challenge,  but  thought  it  was 
a  "great  idea."  He  said  that  the 
challenge  represented  a  "construc- 
tive channel"  for  the  current 
rivalry  between  Victoria  and  SPS.- 

Will  the  engineers  beat  ijd-and- 
gold  men?  "Yes."  replied  Rumble, 
because  the  engineers  Ere  tops 
in  everything."

The  theme  was  decided  upon  at  a  meeting  of'  the  Blue  and

derson said  the  floats  would  be  built  "in  the  best  interests  of 
democracy"  and  the  theme  should  not  cause  any"  bad  spirit.

THE  VARSITY,  Thursday,  October  11th,  1956 


By  Ethel  Wilson  (Toronto: 
MacMillans,  1956.  Price:  $2.75.) 
Under  the  sea-change  of  Ethel 
Wilson's  insight,  personal  rela- 
tions ship-shape  enough  to  a  sur- 
face glance  tremble  on  the  brink 
of  disaster,  physical  and  spirit- 
ual. The  salt  sting  of  imaginative 
failure  is  felt  by  the  heroine  of 
the  novel  and  even  by  her  unre- 
sponsive elder  sister,  where  it  is 
perhaps  loo  unexpected.  The  ear- 
ly chapters  of  the  novel  are  de- 
bilitated by  the  homely  senti- 
mentality of  Ellen  Guppy's  adol- 
escence. Miss  Wilson's  uncom- 
mon good,  sense  is  somewhat  at 
sea  with  this  innocent  abroad. 

The  heroine's  naivete  at  one 
point  includes  her  fellow-voyag- 
ers' grief  at  a  death  at  sea  in  the 
imitable  humour  of  her  state- 
ment that  "everyone  felt  awful." 
One  could  wish  too  that  Miss 
Wilson  shared  E.  M.  Forster's  dis- 

inclination to  remark  sartorial 
superficialties  if  the  most  appro- 
priate garb  she  can  select  for 
Ellen's  companion  is  "their  ra- 
ther evening  dress." 

Miss  Wilson's  love  of  British' 
Columbia  lends  a  wash  of  warm 
colours  to  her  descriptive  pas- 
sages. Her  firmness  of  outline 
whether  she  is  praising  General 
George  Vancouver,  the  arbutus 
tree,  "noble  savage  in  a  drawing 
room,"  or  "the  luminous  great 
sky  of  night"  on  the  prairie  is 
admirable.  The  "almost  alarming 
spaciousness"  of  Canada,  crowds 
into  the  interstices  between  a 
line  such  as  "travel  in  Canada  is 
an  exaction." 

The  novel  concludes  on  a  note 
of  such  atmospheric  awareness 
that  finds  even  Victorian  vulgar- 
ity preferable  to  the  mechanized 
glare  of  the  modern  airport

The  streamlined  accessibility  of

Although  David  Reisman's  The

The  core  of  these  essays  is  Sig- 
fried  Giedon's  revolutionary  es- 
say on  Space  conception  in  pre-

distinguishing  mark  of  this  con- 
ception was  complete  independ-

Jacques  Maritain's  Language  and 
the  Magic  Sign  discerns  that  at 
least  the  poet's  unconscious 
thought  resembles  the  mental  ac- 
tivity of  primitive  man  in  the 
ways  of  magic.  He  concludes  that 
words  lose  their  value  as  any- 
thing but  pathological  symptoms 
when  man  regresses  toward  that 
magical  notion  of  the  sign,  for 
words  should  refer  to  truth,  not 
to  power.  Lister  Sinclair's  Time

expression  but  as  a  problem  of

facts  and  theories  regarding  man 
and  the  universe  we  live  in  are 
presented  in  a  fairly  clear-cut 
and   straightforward  manner. 

The  topic  of  the  third  essay  in 
the  compilation,  Modern  Psychol- 
ogy and  Religion  indicates  trou- 
ble ahead.  Dr.  Taylor  is  aware  of 
the  many  kinds  of  psycotherapy 
rampant,,  and  the  respects  in 
which  the  process  does  and  does 
not  parallel  the  Christian  experi- 
ence. However,  this  reviewer 
wondered  if  the  kind  of  readers 
this  book  is  likely  to  attract  will 
be  able  to  absorb  the  scope  of  his

sis and  Mysticism,  valuable  for 
its  exposition  of  Wittgensteinian 
philosophy,  something  rarely  ser- 
ved up  to  the  general  public  in

Christian's  contribution  to  social

cludes the  group  .with  an  account

The  Poetry  of  E.  J.  Pratt: 
A  New  Interpretation.  By  John 
.Sutherland.  (Toronto:  Ryerson 
Press,  1956.  Prioo:  $1.25) 
%  E.  J.  Pratt  is  no  versifying 
Bernarr  McFadden,  according 
to  Mr.  Sutherland's  thesis,  but 
a  poet  of  unusual  depth  and 
complexity.  Beneath  the  'beefy' 
exterior  of  his  energetic  stories 
in  verse,  The  Titanic,  The  Ca- 
chalot, The  Great  Fued,  "lies 
the  poet  who  is  hidden  in  the 
depths  of  his  poems  ...  he 
sometimes  surpasses  his  con- 
scious intention  and  opens  up 
for  the  reader  areas  of  ex- 
perience which  he  himself  no 
more  than  glimpsed  in  the 
course  of  writing." 

Using  the  critics  sometimes 
contested  prerogative  of  know- 
ing better  than  the  poet  himself 
what  he  is  writing  about,  Su- 
therland proceeds  to  illustrate 
the  deep  Christian  undertones 
which  permeate  Piatt's  poems 

 "I   hope   that   no   one  will 

therefore  assume  that  I  am 
attributing  to  Mr.  Pratt,  either 
as  a  man  or  poet,  an  orthodox 
Chritian  position,  or  any*  posi- 
tion that  he  does  not  hold." 

What  then  is  he  doing,  in  the 
following  quotes:  "In  his  nes- 
(njfi»t;  ntopd,,  i  tpif  ;  poet  fis  jhal£-> 
ready  to  accept  the  divinity  of 

Christ — the  one  fact  which 
could  explain  and  fully  justify 
the  tragic  element  in  life 
(p.  22)"  Nietzche  to  the  con- 
trary, "The  dogma  of  the  fall, 
of  man's  act  of  pride  and  of 
his  consequent  corruption  of 
nature,  acquires  a  sharp  point 
in  the  age  of  the  atomic  bomb. 
Under  these  contemporary  pres- 
sures Pratt  may  be  moved  to 
an  orthodox  assertion  such  as 
we  find  in  the  following  lines 
,<p.  25)."  "As  we  go  farther 
into  the  poems,  we  discover  a 
vein  of  religious  ideas  of  a 
quit*  orthodox  colouring  .  .  . 
Pratt  is  drawn  back  to  a  posi- 
tion ultimately  very  close  to 
the  traditional  Christian  one. 
(p.  26)." 

I  get  the  impression,  too. 
from  what  Mr.  Sutherland 
writes,  that  he  is  not  talking 
about  Christ  as  the  Son  of  Man, 
nor  does  he  consider  that  Pratt 
uses  certain  accepted  religious 
symbols  for  poetic  ends,  but, 
to  quote  again,  "the  destruc- 
tion of  humanity  .  .  .  could 
only  be  atoned  for  if  the  cross 
were  in  fact  the  Cross,  and  if 
Christ  were  truly  the  Son  of 
God.  lp.  25)  and  "...  I  mean 
this  last  statement  to  be  taken 
literally:  the  leJigious  termino- 
logy has  'a'  direct  and  not  just 

a  figurative  application  to 
Pratt's  major  poems  .  .  .  Pratt 
accepts  destruction  as  "a  form 
of  sacrifice";  and  he  knows 
that  it  will  be  overcome — or 
rather  that  it  has  been  over- 
come—by the  sacrifice  of 
Christ  (p.  17). 

It  would  be  a  cliche  of  the 
critic's  trade  to  say  that  Su- 
therland's doctrinal  insistence 
is  just  as  misleading  as  the 
Bernarr  MacFadden  approach 
to  Pratt.  I  think  he  has  need- 
lessly, and  to  great  disadvan- 
tage put  himself,  in  the  poetry 
and  dogma  arena.  Since  the 
book  is  titled  "The  Poetry  of 
E.  J.  Pratt."  he  might  have 
avoided  this  pitfall  by  following 
Professor  FryeMwhom  Suther- 
land quotes  with  approval)  in 
this  matter:  "The  poet  can 
handle  Christianity  only  as 
myth,  just  as  the  theologian 
can  handle  it  only  as  doctrine." 
This  approach  would  have 
avoided  the  use  of  a  lot  of  un- 
hterary  statements  in  a  book 
purportedly  literary-critical. 

Even  Mr.  Sutherland's  open- 
ing remark  about  poetry,  "If 
we  value  poetry,  it  is  because 
it  teaches  us  humility  and  en- 
ables us  to  rejoice  in  all  we  do 
not  know."  seems  tarred  with 
the  wrong  brush. 

titudes  are  unhappy  due  to  the 
failure  of  his  academic  career 
and  his  inability  to  establish 
any  kind  of  happy  relations 
with  his  wife  and  children,  or 
his  mistress. 

During  the  years  which  take 
place  before  the  opening  of  the 
novel,  he  has  only  a  half- 
knowledge  of  the  exact  circum- 
stances of  these  two  incidents: 
his  wife's  partially  intentional 
and  partially  accidental  maim- 
ing of  his  favourite  childT  and 
the  Melpham  burial  hoax  per- 
petrated by  his  friend,  the  son 
of  a  highly  respected  historian 
whose  reputation  depended  to 
a  large  extent  upon  the  disco- 
very of  the  tomb  containing  the 
seventh-century  Bishop  Eorp- 
wald  and  the  mysterious  ferti- 
lity god.  The  novel  itself  is 
concerned  with  Middleton's 
growing  sense  of  the  necessity 
of  coming  to  understand  more 
fully  the  two  situations  and  of 
facing  the  consequences. 

In  solving  the  problem  of  his 
relations  with  his  family".  Ger- 
ald realizes  that  he  has  waited 
too  long  to  be  of  any  use  to 
his  children:  they  are  complete- 
ly dominated  by  the  sentimental 
Ingeborg,  his  huge  and  stupid 
Danish  wife.  The  realization  of 
the  loss  of  his  family  is  a 
kind  of  penance  which  Gerald 
pays  in  expiation  of  his  past 

What  gives  the  novel  its 
seriousness,  however,  is  not  the 
relatively  trivial  examination  of 
the  lives  of  the  Middleton  hus- 
•  bands,  wives,  and  mistresses, 
but  the  social  background  in 
which  all  this  is  set  by  means 
of  the  Melpham  burial  hoax. 
In  his  investigation  of  the 
circumstances  of  the  excavation 
of    the    tomb,    Middleton  is 

drawn  into  relations  with  an 
extraordinary  assortment  of 
people,  and  through  this  wi-ie 
variety  of  social  types  Angus 
Wilson  conducts  a  rather  bittei 
castigation  of  English  Society: 
from  the  public  world  of  aca- 
demic circles  which  is  ridiculed 
through  and  through  by  means 
of  the  Melpham  fraud  (the 
author  makes  it  clear  that  he 
has  no  recent  discoveries  about 
the  Piltdown  man  in  mind)  to 
the  world  of  petty  thieves  and 
homosexuals  whose  aspirations 
and  pretensions  differ  only  in 
degree  from  those  of  the  scho- 
lars. In  general  he  makes  inn 
of  the  behaviour  of  both  the 
generation  brought  up  on  psy- 
chology and  sex  and  the  genera- 
tion brought  up  on  inhibitions. 

Stylistically,  Wilson  has  mere 
in  common  with  nineteenth 
century  chastity  than  with 
twentieth  century  liberalism. 
His  greatest  achievement  is 
probably  his  ability  to  repro- 
duce in  excellent  dialogue  ihe 
different  kinds  of  speech  in  the 
various  social  classes  of  con- 
temporary English  society.  He 
makes  a  rather  curious  use  ol 
certain  blatant  symbols  like  the 
fertility  god  and  Ingeborg.  the 
mock-Brunhilde  figure.  Aside 
from  the  value  which  they  have 
for  one  novel  itself  (and  this 
is  relatively  slight)  they  seem 
in  much  the  same  way  that  'he 
Melpham  fraud  makes  fun  rif 
academic  pretensions,  to  mock 
the  current  chicness  of  esoteric 
symbols  in  contemporary  wi  it- 
lng»  With  all  the  implications  of 
mock  and  sham,  it  seems  to 
have  been  Wilson's  intention  to 
expose  certain  aspects  of  Eng- 
lish society  as  pure  fraud  and

as  "continental"  (four  Russian, 
one  Polish,  one  Ukrainian) 
opened  last  Thursday  night  at  the 
Odeon-Christie  with  the  Russian 
'Twelfth  Night",  shown  to  a  dis- 
appointingly small  audience.  The 
film  is  a  new  release,  in  excellent 
colour  and  with  lively  music.

who  is  exactly  like  a  large  ginger

but  as  a  creation  he  is  a  delight, 
i  To  get  my  other  faint  objection 
over  with,  why  ever  did  they 
replace  "When  that  I  was"  at 
the  end  with  a  conventional  ditty 
on  the  triumph  of  love?) 

The  dialogue  has  been  cut  to  a 
minimum  —  both  "If  music  be 
the  food  of  love"  &  "Patience 
a  monument"  go  under  the 
shears,  to  judge  from  subtitles  — 
and  the  poetic  effects  give  place 
to  beauty  and  sweep  of  setting; 
but  one  cannot  feel  that  Shake- 
speare has  been  disrespectfully 
handled.  The  comic  interpreta- 
tion is  all  one  could  wish,  and 

carried  out  with  expert  timing  its 
boisterousness  is  balanced  by  the 
delicacy  with  which  the  lovers 
move  and  speak. 

Olivia  and  Viola  (the  same 
actress  plays  Sebastian)  are  par- 
ticularly good.  If  this  is  a  mallei 
of  Russian  temperament,  lei  us 
see  more  of  it.  Each  has  a  beauty 
that  seems  to  spring  from 
arid  spirit  rather  than  from  phys- 
ical features,  and  they  imprest 
their  force  as  much  as  by  their 
sensitivity.  Viola  especially 
seems  to  speak,  not  spcoificai'; 
Russian,  but  a  universal  language;

There  is,  after  all,  something  to  be  said  for  leth- 
argy. It's  relaxing;  it  never  tires  one,-  when  carried 
out  in  the  proper  beer-and-television  atmosphere,  it 
can  be  rather  romantic;  and  it's  simplicity  itself  for 
the  dull. 

But  there  is  a  great  deal  more  to  be  said  for  en- 

Energy— as  it  is  evident  in  the  students  of  this 
university— is,  more  often  than  not,  misdirected.  The 
few  persons  who  actually  have  the  desire  to  accom- 
plish something  usually  are  whirled  into  abject  mon- 
otony by  over-serious,  self-centered  and  futile  under- 
graduate activities  that  keep  this  campus  a  dead 
weight  in  the  community  as  a  whole.  They  are  over- 
whelmed, in  a  word,  by  their  selfishness. 

Refreshingly,  there  has  now  come  to  Toronto's 
undergraduates  an  opportunity  either  to  develop 
some  useful  energy  or  to  channel  what  they  do  have 
into  more  useful  lines. 

Presented  on  this  centre  spread  (because  like  the 
O'Keefe  people,  we  believe  in  it)  is  the  story  of  how 
a  small  group  of  students  gathered  last  year  and  de- 
cided something  could  be  done  about  the  horrifying 
state  of  extra-curricular  activity.  Also  on  these  two 
pages,  are  illustrated  what  other  students  can  do 
along  these  lines,  and  how  to  go  about  doing  it. 

Without  becoming  involved  with  either  their 
own  importance  or  the  red-tape-bound  council  that 
calls  itself  our  student  government,  these  students 
have  gone  ahead  and  drawn  up  a  plan  by  'which  stu- 
dents can  throw  off  their  lethargy  or  direct  their 
energy  into  truly  worthwhile  projects. 

The  cliche  about  it  being  more  blessed  to  give

The  students  of  Victoria  who  have  drawn  up 
this  plan  have  devoted  a  great  deal  of  their  own 
time  to  the  work  involved.  All  they  can  do  is  make 
the  opportunity  available.  If  the  plan  is  to  go  over,  if 
it  is  to  benefit  both  the  students  of  Toronto  and  the 
underprivileged  people  who  need  their  help;  the 
committee  will  need  immediate  and  continuous  sup- 
port from  a  large  number  of  undergraduates. 

We  suggest  you  give  it  to  them.

Several  Welfare  agencies  are 
anxious  for  the  services  of  Uni- 
versity students  who  are  willing 
to  help. 

The  volunteer  Department  of 
the  Welfare  Council  needs  ap- 
proximately two  hundred  stu- 
dents to  work  in  Settlement 
Houses  and  Community  Centres. 
The  times  required  are  mornings 

The  Challenge 

"Have  you  ever  stopped  to  consider  the  purpose  and 
functions  of  the  extra-curicular  activities  available  in 
your  college  or  faculty?  Try  it  some  time:  One  thing 
sadly  true  of  nearly  all  our  organizations  is  that  they 
concentrate  on  the  development  or  amusement  of  the 
students  without  consideration  of  a  greaer  social  re- 
sponsibiliy  to  the  community. 

We  are  so  preoccupied  with  ourselves  and  our  own 
activities  that  we  fail  to  consider  the  needs  of  f.uch  per- 
sons as  New  Canadians,  deprived  children,  and  lonely 
old-age  pensioners.  The  University  should  be  one  of  the 
focal  points  in  the  life  of  a  community,  and  as  such 
should  be  very  conscious  of  its  needs. 

We  agree  that  one  student  certainly  has  not  the  time 
to  give  his  full  consideration  to  any  one  aspect  of  social 
work,  but  a  number  of  students  giving  a  small  amount 
of  their  time  will  more  than  make  up  for  that  one  stu- 

Working  on  this  assumption,  Victoria  College  has  set 
up  a  program  whereby  an  interest  in  social  work  will  be 
included  among  their  extra-curricular  activities. 

We  cannot  expect  to  have  the  entire  university  whole- 
heartedly behind  this  effort,  but  we  hope  that  the  satis- 
faction derived  from  the  experiences  of  a  few  will  be 
made  known  to  others,  and  in  this  way  it  is  hoped  an  in- 
terest in  the  needs  of  our  own  community  will  become 
an  accepted  part  of  our  college  curriculum. 

This  is  what's  happening  at  Vic.  Make  it  your  respon- 
sibility to  see  that  we  don't  stand  alone." 

Officials  Like  It 


In  Ontario  there  is  a  great  net- 
work of  welfare  services  —  both 
public  and  private.  The  Ontario 
Department  of  Public  Welfare 
maintains  programmes  in  co-oper- 
ation with  the  Federal  Govern- 
ment, the  Municipalities,  or  on 
its  own  for  children,  the  aged 
and  infirm,'  the  dependent  and 

Private  agencies,  like  the  Child- 
ren's Aid  Societies,  Neighbour- 
hood Workers  Association.  Family 
Service  Bureaux,  Big  Sister  and 
Big  Brother  Movements,  all  per- 
form vital  welfare  services  in  the 

community.  Thousands  of  Ontario 
citizens  discharge  their  commun- 
ity responsibilities  by  assuming 
various  volunteer  welfare  func- 
tions as  board  members,  assist- 
ants in  Settlement  Houses  like 
our  own  University  Settlement.

No  university  is,  or  should  be, 
an  ivory  tower.  Least  of  all  can 
the  University  of  Toronto  ever 
become  such.  Even  here,  however, 
there  is  an  ever-present  danger 
that  students  may  become  en- 
grossed either  in  their  own  purely 
personal  affairs,  or  alternatively, 
in  the  world  of  ideas  for  which 
the  University  quite  rightly 

It  is.  however,  always  un- 
fortunate if  we  forget  that  know- 
ledge of  any  kind,  no  matter  how 
abstruse  or  esoteric,  must  ulti- 
mately be  related  to  man.  his 
hopes,  dreams,  aspirations  —  and 

As  university  students  it  is  im- 
portant that  we  know  something 
about  how  the  other  half  <or  the 
other  9©***)  live  and  think.  It  is 
our  duty  to  be  prepared  to  render 
service  and  there  is  no  finer  time 
to  learn  the  satisfactions  which 
accrue  from  such,  activities  than 
right  now  while  we  are  in  our 
student  days. 

I  am  happy,  therefore,  to  make 
this  small  contribution  to  the  ciny 
rent  issue  of  The  Varsity  and  tu 
interest  others  of  their  fellows  in 
some  form  of  unselfish  giving  of 
themselves  and  their  abilities  to 
the  less  fortunate  in  our  society.

In  their  statement  to  Vic  they

and  tolerance  of  differences,  and 
an  acceptance  of  the  fact  that 
each  group  has  a  contribution

to  enable  children  to  remain  in 
their  homes,  when  this  seems  to 
be  in  their  best  interest." 

Volunteers  are  needed  in  every 
branch  of  the  University  Settle- 
ment. Problems  facing  the 
Settlement  now  are  those  of  un- 
employment, health,  raising  chil- 
dren, and  providing  opportunity 
for  education,  culture  and  re- 


.  But  Some  Disagree 


No,  we're  afraid,  in  all  honesty, 
we  cannot  say  we  endorse  the 
move,  at  least  so  far  as  U.C.  is 
concerned.  The  executive  was 
unanimous  in  feeling  that  to- 
day's student  government  (on 
the  college  level)  is  overextend- 
ing  itself,  attempting  too  much, 
and  in  failing  becomes  disillu- 

Possibly  student  government 
is  getting  to  a  point  too  far 
away  from  the  student  to  be  of 
any  reasonable  value  to  anybody. 
Before  you  conclude  that  we  have 
decided  for  sin,  and  against  home 
and  mother,  let  us  add  that  we 
feel  that  within  the  University 
community  itself  there  are  al- 
ready "worthy  causes"  which 
merit,  and  in  most  cases  get,  the 
students'  attention^  to  add  to 
this  list  would  be  to  dissipate 
what  energy  the  average  student 
is  willing  or  likely  to  spend  in 
such  work,  and  thus  do  more 
harm  than  actual  good. 

SHARE,  (you'll  be  relieved  to 
know)  we  wholeheartedly  ap- 
prove of,  because  it  ties  in  with 
university  existence  and  is  far 
more  meaningful  to  the  U.  of  T. 
student  than  the  casually-given 
contribution  produced  by-  a  nag- 
ging sense  of  guilt. 

The  Red  Feather  campaign  we 
leave  to  the  individual's  sense  of  . 
responsibility  to  the  community. 
But  w-hen  it  comes  to  promoting 
volunteer  work  for  undoubtedly 
worthy  agencies,  there  caution 
rears  its  ugly  little  head. 

The  University  Settlement  is, 
needless  to  say,  in  a  class  by  it- 
self—because of  its  very  direct 
tie-up  with  the  University;  a 
lai-ge  number  of  our  students  of 
their  own  volition,  give  their 
time  each  week  to  work  in  the 
settlement  classes  and  play- 
grounds. It  is  this  sort  of  stu- 
dent alone— the  one  who  will  go 
on  hi"3  own  initiative— who  is 
going,  to  derive  and  give  benefit 
from  his  labours. 

Beyond  the  university  com- 
munity we  are  not  yet  wholly 
convinced  that  the  students 
should  stray  as  do-gooders.  A 
very  Jarge  number  of  students, 
after  all,  are  very  busy  people, 
'and  not  all  their  activities  are  . 
self-centered  or  frivolous:  witness 
the  Blood  Campaign,  the  WUS 
Committee,  the  NFCUS  Scholar- 
ship campaign. 

We  'feel  there  are  other  ways 
of  combating  Ivory  Tower-ism, 
or  maybe  lif  we  are  forced  to 
reveal  our  darkest  motives)  we 
have  a.  sneaking  fondness  for  the 
Ivory  'Tower  and  should  like  to 
trve  vent  to  our  worthier  im- 
pulses within  its  circumference. 

We  could,  of  course,  endorse 
your  project  with  a  resounding 
'.-  :  y©«"  and  lapse  into,  comfortable 
thoughts  about  nebulous  hordes  , 

other  students  thronging  to 
the*  cause.  BufUeing  basically 

honest  (if  narrow-minded!)  we 
cannot  see  that  such  a  project 
would  arouse  any  sustained  en- 
deavour in  University  College 
after  the  first  initial  outburst  of 
enthusiasm.  We  are  morbidly 
conscious  that  our  College  stan.^ 
for  individual  endeavour  indi- 
vidually pursued-  that  we  can- 
not, in  conscience  nag  a  large 
part'of  our  student  population  To 
participate  unwillingly  simply  to 
prove  to  the  world  that  old  U . 
has  "Group  Spirit." 

Those  are  our  reasons,  possi- 
bly none  of  them  valid  to  you. 
hut  nevertheless  our  honest  con- 
victions. Since  most  of  us  ait 
graduating,  we  could  have  moie 
easily  said  "yes",  and  left  next 
year's  executive  to  worry  about 
the  legitimate  functions  of  stu- 
dent government.  However,  neM 
week  we  elect  two  new  execu- 
tives; maybe  their  humanitarian 
instincts  are  more  highly  de- 

With  love  and  sympathy, 
The  tr.C.  Lit. 
The  I'-C.  W.I'.*. 


I  feel  that  there  are  too  many 
things  which  a  student  would 
rather  do  with  his  time  than 
social  work. 

There  would  have  to  be  a  large 
enough  group  to  whom  you  think 
this  project  would  appeal.  I 
think  a  good  method  of  finding 
out  how  many  in  your  College 
are  of  this  nature  would  be  te 
take  a  poll  in  the  clubs  that  are 
active  in  a  religious  manner. 

As  far  as  the  Engineers  a't 
concerned,  they  have  no  time 
at  all,  with  such  full  timetable;. 
However,  there  might  be  found 
such  an  element  which  would  ex- 
press enthusiasm  for  this  pro-'' 
ject.  I  wish  you  all  the  success 

Piuil  Walters. 


I  have  been  asked  to  discusB 
the  possibility  of  incorporating 
social  work  in  the  extra-curri- 
cular activities  of  foresters.  The 
Executive  and  students  are  very 
much  interested  in  this  idea  and 
are  sympathetic  to  all  forms  of 
social  work,  especially  the  Uni- 
versity Settlement.  TIic  very  un- 
fortunate problem  is,  however, 
that  a  low  enrolment,  a  heavy 
time-table,  and  a  well-developed 
program  of  extra-curricular  ac- 
tivities in  which  most  students 
participate,  make  it  almost 
physically  impossible  for  us  to 
•,-jve  more  than  moral  support-  .

THE  VARSITY,  Thursday,  October  11th,  1956 

Bulletin  Board  Grounded 
Still  Promise  Progress 

The  famous  SAC  bulletin  board 
has  moved  again  but  this  time 
move  progress  is  promised. 

The  newest  move  of  the  cum- 
bersome steel-work  was  from  the 
top  of  the  bookstore  last  week.  It 
had  been  placed  there  by  zealous 
engineers  who  could  not  under- 
stand why  the  SAC  did  not  move 
it  from  its  resting  place  at  Varsity 

It  had  been  resting  at  the 
stadium  since  last  March,  await- 
ing the  arrival  of  a  truck  large 
enough  to  transport  it  to  the  SAC 
building.  There  were  about  20  en- 
it  down. 

The  steel  structure  is  now  rest- 
ing behind  the  bookstore,  safely 
padlocked  to  the  iron  fence.  SAC 
publicity  director  Jim  Nowski 
said  that  work  will  be  started 
this  weekend  to  get  the  sign  to 
its  proper  place,  'Tve  got  some 
fellows  in  Architecture  organized 
to  do  it."  he  said. 

Nowski  claimed  that  he  did  not 
know  anything  about  the  kidnap- 
ping of  the  billboard.  He  had  re- 
ceived no  word  from  the  SAC 
about  it,  and  found  out  only  after 

it  had  been  lowered  from  the 
bookstore  by  University  police. 

Nowski  said  also*  he  did  not 
know  who  gave  the  order  for 
the  frame's  removal  from  the 
roof  of  the  bookstore.  He  thought 
that  perhaps  it  was  A,  Russell, 
Assistant  Supt,  of  Building  and 

Meanwhile  the  bulletin  board 
sits  beside  the  bookstore,  obli- 
vious of  the  SAC  controversy 
that  rages  over  the  delay  of  its  ar- 
-rival.  It  is  estimated  by  Nowski 
that  the  sign  will  be  safely 
established  next  week,  after  a 
year  of  arguing.

THE  VARSITY,  Thursday,  October  11th,  195G

rill  Miss  McGill  Contest 

uple  of  weeks  ago.  Varsity 
Dalt  White  called  McGill 
im  to  beat  in  the  Inter- 
ite  Union  this  fall.  Western 
Johnny  Metras  echoed 
t  words  last  Friday  and  his 
gs  turned  around  and  stun- 
irry  Sullivan's  crew  with  a 

Blues  have  their  opporunity 
ow  the  same  pattern  oh 
ay  when  they  invade  Mol- 
tadium    in    Montreal.  But 

have  to  do  without  the 
<s  of  Captain  Ed  Skrzypek, 
irry  Stacey  and  guard  Nick 
jvsky.  All  three  came  limp- 
t  of  the  Queen's  battle  last

it  the  end  spot,  and  Bill

Redmen,  however,  are  not 
it  their  own  troubles.  Their 
jlow  was  the  loss  of  ex- 
/   backfielder   Wally  Bul-

>ur  has  it  that  Yankee  scouts 
;d  Vic's  outstanding  pitcher 
in  Larsen  watch  out! 

Varsity  Sports  Editor 

in  the  league  last  year,  was  being 
counted  upon  heavily  by  Sullivan 
in  his  pass-defense  setup. 

Behrman  Out 
The  second  chop  at  McGill's 
Yates  Cup  hopes  came  when  im- 
port Jack  Behrman  suffered  a 
shoulder  injury  in  practice  and 
will  likely  be  lost  to  the  team 
for  the  remainder  of  the  season. 
The  ex-Wake  Forest  star,  who 
plays  mainly  defensive  ball  but 
can  fill  the  half  spot  as  well, 
came  to  the  Redmen  on  the  re- 
commendation of  Alouette  coach 
Peahead  Walker,  a  Wake  Forest 
grad  himself. 

To  add  to  Sullivan's  woes, 
veteran  half  Bob  Perry  decided 
to  forsake  his  education,  and  an- 
nounced that  he  would  not  return 
to  McGill  this  year. 

Carr-Bennett  Threat 
They  still  have,  however,  their 
great  passing  combination  of 
Dickie  Carr  and  young  Johnny 
Bennett.  The  latter  won  the  in- 
dividual scoring  honours  last  year. 
Mcrdy  Armstrong,  Rick  Adrian 
and  Jerry  Anderson,  all  two-year 
letter  men.  provide  the  Redmen 
with  a  strong  half  line.  Up  front 
they  have  ex-Ticats  Buster 
Brown  and  Ron  Murphy;  Des 
Desimone  and  John  Larsen.  Joe 

as  one  of  the  best  groundgainers 
Bernot  and  newly-elected  captain 
Vaughn  McVey  return  to  the 
centre  spots. 

With  a  man  like  Sullivan  at  the 
helm,  and  the  nucleus  of  a  po- 
tential champion  under  his  guid- 
ance, the  Redmen,  despite  their 
loss  to  Western,  will  make  it  a 
tough  battle  for  all  comers. 
Long  Practice 
In  preparation  for  the  game,  the 
Blues  went  through  their  longest 
workout  of  the  season  last  night. 
The  last  half  hour  was  devoted  to 
pass  defense,  indicating  Coach 
White  expects  4he  worst  frjsm 
aerial-expert  Carr.

Vic  Grabs  Rowed  Trophy 
Williams  Dominates  Events 

On  the  strength  of  a  26  point 
individual  effort,  Vic's  Normie 
Williams  ran  away  with  the 
Chancellor  Cody  Trophy  for  the 
third  straight  year  at  University 
track  meet  yesterday  in  Varsity 

Displaying  near-perfect  form, 
Norm  won  the  120  high  and  220 
low  hurdles,  broad  jump,  discus, 
shot  put,  and  placed  fourth  >n 
the  javelin  to  become  the  first 
athlete  in  the  University's  his- 
tory to  take  the  coveted  trophy 
three  years  running. 

Behind  Williams  performance, 
Vic  scored  an  upset  victory  over 
Skule  to  regain  the  Rowell  Me- 
morial Trophy,  symbolic  of  the 
team  championship.  Vic  totalled 
46  points,  five  more  than  S.P.S.

The  campus  built  by  James  McGill  and  the  stadium  erected  by 
that  drink  of  distinction,  namely  Molson.  will  play  host  to  a  group 
of  football  players  from  Toronto  this  weekend.  For  at  two  o'clock 
this  Saturday  afternoon  the  Varsity  Blues  will  meet  the  Redmen 
in  one  of  the  most  important  contests  of  the  young  Intercollegiate 
football  season. 

Genial  John  Metras  threw  a  wrench  into  the  Redmen's  plan  of 
conquest  last  week.  Apparently  Mr.  Metras  hadn't  read  the  press 
clippings  which  told  one  and  all  that  McGill  was  the  team  to  beat 
this  year  and  went  right  out  and  conked  Larry  Sullivan's  crew  on 
the  noggin'  with  a  6-3  victory.  That  is  why  this  contest  Is  an  im- 
portant one  for  McGill. 

This  same  Mr.  Metras  is  not  accustomed  to  losers.  As  a  matter 
of  fact  John  is»the  winningest  mentor  in  Canadian  Intercollegiate 
football.  In  the  last  ten  years  he  has  guided  his  Mustangs  to  no  less 
than  six  championships,  His  basketball  record  is  even  more  spec- 
tacular. It  has  been  12  long  winters  since  any  other  member  of  the 
college  league  has  held  the  Wilson  Trophy,  emblematic  of  college 
cage  supremacy  So  you  can  see.  Metras  likes  a  winner. 

But  last  year  Western's  mentor  of  athletics  had  a  loser  and  a 
bad  one  at  that.  His  team  could  only  salvage  a  single  tie  in  the. 
six  intercollegiate  matches.  They  began  the  season  with  a  20-2 
drubbing  at  the  hands  of  the  Blues  and  continued  along  that  illus- 
trious path  to  oblivion. 

This  summer  Metras  decided  that  he  would  not  have  a  repeat 
performance.  Sg  he  travelled  to  Toronto,  talking  to  many  prospec- 
tive high  school  players.  Up  at  Vaughan  Road  Collegiate  he  had 
many  discussions  with  TDIAA  all-star  quarterback  Don  McGregor, 
and  lineman  Barry  Swadron.  Unfortunately  for  Metras,  both  men 
decided  to  stay  at  Toronto.  McCregor  is  at  Victoria  while  Swadron 
will  be  a  member  of  the  UC  squad. 

Metras  was  so  determined  to  produce  a  winner  that  his  training 
camp  was  one  of  the  stiff  est  in  a  long  time.  He  dropped  veteran 
halfback  John  Sweeney  for  cutting  training. 

Now  John  Metras  can  once  again  smile  with  that  6-3  triumph 
last  Saturday,  while  McGill  coach  Larry  Sullivan  needs  a  win 
badly  against  the  Blues  if  he  is  to  enhance  the  reputation  of  the 
sports  scribes  who  picked  his  squad  the  one  to  beat. 

The  Intramural  rugby  season  gets  under  way  next  Monday 
Vic  seems  to  be  the  strong  squad  in  Group  One  .  .  .  Watch  out 
for  that  combined  Pharmacy-Forestry  entry  in  the  second  group 
Rumour  has  it  that  One  Eyed  Benny  predicts  a  34-1  Varsity  win" 
on  Saturday  .  .  .  Here  are  the  results  of  the  Intramural  Athletic 
Committee  "elections  .  .  .  J'm  Wilkinson  of  Meds  is  this  year's 
chairman.  Jerry  Grafstein  is  vice-chairman  while  UC's  Bob  Pezzack 
is  the  rep  to  the  Athletic  Directorate  .  .  .   

Improved  UC  Squad 
Faces  Stiff  Schedule 

Coach  Gary  Banks  or'  the  Uni- 
versity College  football  entry, 
optimistically  declared  that  his 
squad  would  win  at  least  three 
of  its  league  games  this  year, 
despite  the  advance  of  U.C.  to 
Group  One  competition.  This 
year's  version  of  the  U.C.  Redmen 
will  operate  from  a  variation  of 
the  Split  T.  Quarterbacks  Dave 
Sutherland*  and  John  Lambier.  ex- 
perienced second  year-men.  will 
direct  the  attack.  An  unusual  fea- 
ture of  the  U.C.  backfield  will  be 
the  presence  of  two  fullbacks.

Oyez!  Oyez! 

— Relter 

Not  everyone  was  when  the  picture  was 
taken,  Engineers  trooped  en  masse  to  Vic- 
toria to  read  their  version  of  the  Riot  Act — a  proclamation  proscribing 
the  five  Vicmen  said  to  have  kidnapped  Engineering  President  John 
iRumble  Friday  night.  Gord  Sheppard  (III  Vic)  is  the  happy  sprayer. 

kidnapping  of  their  president. 

They  phoned  Victoria  College 
Union  President  Rich  Newman 
(IV  Vic)  at  1  a.m.  Wednesday  and 
made  him  promise  the  apology 
before  they  returned  their  fresh- 
man captive.  They  asked  Newman 
for  40  beers  as  well. 

Tom  Ingram  (I  Vic)  was  kid- 
napped at  about  midnight  Tues- 
day. Engineers  came  to  his  room 
in  South  House  Men's  Residence 
at  Vic  and  asked  him  to  take 
them  '  to  Middle  House.  Outside, 
they  took  him  to  a  car  and  left. 
Ingram   was   returned   at  2.30 

Saturday.  Engineers  on  campus 
today  wore  Brute  Force  tags  as 
they  went  to  classes- 
Newman's  apology  reads: 
"It  seems  that  feelings  have 
been  hurt.  When  feelings  have 
been  hurt  an  apology  is  usually 
requested  —  not  the  engineers 
however.  They  demand  one. 
Evidently  the  whole  of  the  student 
body  at  S.P.S.  received  a  grievous 
moral  blow  with  the  perpetration 
of  the  "Rumble  Incident"  of  this 
past  weekend. 

"I  received  a  phone  call  at  1 
a.m.  Wednesday  morning  only  to

Prophet  of  Doom 

Engineers  March  On  Vic 
In  Protest  Over  Kidnapping 

Three  hundred  Engineers 
marched  to  Vic  at  noon  yesterday 
to  make  a  formal  proclamation  of 
retaliation  for  the  kidnapping  of 
their  President  John  Rumble. 

Amid  the  dulcet  tones  of  the 
Lady  Godiva  Band  they  arrived 
ii  front  of  the  Students"  Union 
to  be  greeted  with  a  barrage  of 
four  and  water  thrown  by  the 
cheering  Vic  defence. 

After  a  short  struggle  for  the 
control  of  the  lethal  weapons,  the 
Engineers  withdrew  like  gentle- 
men and  their  black-clad  leader, 
Keith  Mclntyre  stepped  forward. 

"Hear  Ye,  Hear  Ye.  All  Vic 
Students."  he  cried,  and  went  on 
to  threaten  dire  consequences  for 
all  said  students  "now.  henceforth 
.ind  forever". 

A  defiant  "red  and  gold"  cheer 
ensued  from  a  group  of  Victoria 

In  answer  the  Brute  Force  Com- 
mittee spokesman  began  the  cru- 
cial part  of  the  proclamation. 

"The  following  have  been  found 
lacking  not  only  in  the  qualities 
of  the  humanities  but  also  of 
human  qualities  and  thus  have 
been  deemed  unlit  for  campus 
life.  Accordingly  they  have  been 
elected  to  receive  refresher  cours- 
es by  the  Brute  Force  Committee 
and  will  be  dealth  with  in

"These  students  have  forfeited

You  all  know  that  doom  struck 
yesterday.  Brooklyn  Dodgers  lost 
the  World  Series  to  the  Yankees. 

I  felt  it.  It  clutched  at  my 
heartstrings.  All  the  people 
around  me  clutched  at  theirs  too. 
Everyone  controlled  himself. 
No  one  wept.  But  the  grief  was 
there.  It  was  mirrored  in  the 
television  screen  as  they  passed 
by  it,  out  into  the  cruel,  crude 

These  people  had  another  prop 
—  another  ideal  —  torn  from 
under  them  when  Brooklyn  lost 
that  game.  Faith  in  the  underdog. 
Faith  they'd  regained  last  October,

Peculiar,  isn't  it,  when  the

didn't  back  the  Yanks.

For  a  determined  band  of  football  players 
and  approximately  1,000  enthusiastic  supporters, 
the  big  day  has  finally  arrived.  At  4  o'clock 
this  afternoon  and  11:15  tonight.  Toronto's 
Union  Station  will  be  beseiged  by  hordes  of 
Varsity  students  bound  for  Montreal  and  to- 
morrow's vital  clash  between  the  Blues  and  the 
McGill  Redmen. 

If  ticket  sales  are  a  true  indication,  it  will 
be  the  largest  crowd  ever  to  travel  to  old 
McGill  for  an  Intercollegiate  event.  The  Hart 
House  ticket  office  reports  that  nearly  three- 
quarters  of  the  800  game  tickets  have  been 
sold,  while  the  SAC,  operating  its  special  train 
for  the  third  year,  expects  to  dispense  with  450 
combination  train-game  ducats  before  the 
Chicago  -  Montreal  express  steams  Montreal- 
bound  this  afternoon. 

The  team  and  cheerleaders  will  travel  on 
the  afternoon  pool  train.  Extra*  cars  will  be 
added  to  accommodate  fans  who  have  purchised 
tickets  for  the  early  trip.  The  band  and  the 

remainder  of  the  student  contingent  will  take 
the  all-night  jaunt  which  rolls  eastward  after  11. 

Just  about  the  time  the  late  train  leaves 
the  city,  Blue  coach  Dalt  White  will  be  hustling 
his  charges  off  to  bed  in  preparation  for  the 
Saturday  game.  When  they  take  to  Molson 
Memorial  Stadium  gridiron  at  Macdonald  Park 
tomorrow,  they'll  be  playing  the  role  of  underdog 
to  Larry  Sullivan's  potent  Redmen.  Despite  the 
6-3  loss  to  Western's  rebellious  Mustangs  last 
week,  McGill  remains  as  two  -  touchdown 

Varsity  will  play  without  the  services  of 
captain  Ed  Skrzypek,  Lorry  Stacey  and  Nick 
Bruchovsky.  John  Casey  and  Peter  Maik  are 
both  nursing  ailments,  but  will  be  available  for 
duty.  McGill  escaped  unscatned  from  the 
Western  game,  and  Sullivan  is  expected  to  go 
with  much  the  same  squad. 

For  the  Varsity  fans  making  the  trip,  the 
next  couple  of  days  will  go  down  in  history  as 
the  biggest  and  best  football  weekend  yet.

Charter  Day  a  Bore 


Sidney'  Smith  looked  bored,  and  Lester  B.  Pearson  hid 
behind  the  lectern  as  74  Victoria  College  students  received  prizes 
at  the  Charter  Day  Convocation  last  night. 

Unfortunately  for  the  External  Affairs  minister,  the  lec- 
tern was  removed,  thus  baring  him  unmercifully. 

There  were  the  usual  rounds  of  short  speeches  of  welcome 
by  various  assorted  dignitaries.  Prizes  were  handed  out  for  hours 
on  end.  After  the  traditional  tea  and  cookies,  everyone  trudged 
home,  happy  that  Victoria  College  had  survived  another  year. 
Maybe  next  year,  there  will  be  another  fascinating  Convocation 
to  attend. 

9  Where  are  Our  Plaques 
Meds,  Engineering,  Chorus 

Campus  police  are  still  looking 
Dr  two  brass  nameplates  which 
isappeared  over  the  weekend 
rom  the  Medical  and  Engineering 
tuildings.  The  plaques  were  worth 
90  apiece. 

The  plaques  were  pried  off  while 
tudents  were  home  for  the  week- 
nd_  Assistant  Superintendent  A. 
[ussell  said  last  night.  He  had  no 

reply  from  an  advertisement  in 
The  Varsity  asking  for  return  of 
the  plaques. 

The  ad  said  "no  questions  will 
be  asked"  if  the  signs  are  returned. 

"Signs  from  various  buildings 
have  been  taken  down  in  previous 
years  but  in  every  case  they  have 
been  returned  and  we  certainly 
hope  they  will  be  returned  again," 
Mr.  Russell  said. 

Pandemonium  broke  loose  in 
Pogo-for-President  headquarters 
yesterday  afternoon  when  Cana- 
dian Customs  officials  telephoned 
to  say  a  substitute  advice  card  is 
on  the  way.. 

The  card — which  will  be  mailed 
to  campaign  chairman  Pete  Gzow- 
ski.  care  of  The  Varsity  office — 
will  release  500  I  Go  Pogo  buttons 
from  the  customs  office. 

"Customs  officials  have  guaran- 
teed we'll  have  the  buttons  by 
Monday."  Gzowski  announced  to  a 
jubilant  crowd. 

Immediately  the  celebration  be- 

Enthusiastic  supporters  rushed 
to  stick  together  the  advice  cards 
solicited  from  hundreds  of  U.  of 
T.  Pogo  fans.  The  party  workers 
ran  outside  campaign  headquarters 
(occasionally  used  as  The  Varsity 

-The  cards  were  strung  in  a 
chain.  Part  of  the  chain  was  hung 
from  Queen's  Park  bridge.  The 
rest  was  borne  about  the  campus 
by  supporters.  Traffic  was  stopped 
while  the  Pogo  supporters  cele- 
brated their  victory  over  red  tape. 

"We've  proved  once  and  for  all 
that  public  opinion  can  conquer 
officialdom,"  Peter  Grant,  chair- 
man of  the  Faculty  of  Medicine's

Trinity  Regresses  to  Cave  Era 

Trinity  College  men  went  twelve 
ours  without  knives,  forks  and 
poons  yesterday  morning  —  but 

Brute  Force 

A  member  of  the  Vigilante 
Nucleus.  Brute  Force  Com- 
mittee said  last  night  the  kid- 
napping of  Vic's  Tom  Ingram 
was  not  an  organized  effor; 
of  the  SPS  Brute  Force  Com- 
mittee, contrary  to  all  rumour. 

Men  of  college  were  greeted 
at  breakfast  with  rows  of  napkins 
and  grapefruit  juice.  The  silver 
was  gone.  A  few  spoons  for  sugar 
and  coffee  had  been  ignored. 

Staff  silver — for  40 — was  used 
to  feed  over  100  men.  By  noon,  di- 
etician Miss  J.  Booth  had  borrowed 
enough  silver  from  Hart  House  to 
serve  Strachan  Hall, 

"It's  upsetting,"  she  said.  "I 
heard  a  noise  about  three  in  the 
morning  and  saw  four  men  throw- 
ing something  over  the  back 
fence."  Her  bedroom  looks  out  on 
Trinity's  quadrangle. 

Trinity  men  variously  called  the 
short-time    theft   an   "inside  job", 

'retaliation  by  the  engineers',  and 
'revival  of  the  Trinity-Wycliffe 

The  silver  was  rescued  at  2:00 
p.m.  from  The  Varsity's  office, 
where  it  had  been  placed  early  in 
the  morning. 

Debaters  Wanted! 

Six  applicant's  have  registered 
to  try  out  in  the  University  of 
Toronto  Debating  Union  try-outs 
two  weeks  away.  Cut-off  date  is 
Monday  for  applications. 

Winners  wil  debate  in  at  least 
six  American  colleges.  Rules  and 
forms  are  in  the  SAC  office. 

The  buttons  will  be  distributed 
Monday,  Gzowski  said,  "if  the  cus- 
toms office  lives  up  to  its  word." 

They  have  been  locked  in  cus- 
toms since  Gzowski's  original  ad- 
vice card — which  told  him  how  to 
obtain  them — was  sent  to  an  out- 
dated address. 

Since  then,  more  than  200  cam- 
pus Pogo  fans  have  sent  in  advice 
cards — addresed  to  customs  offi- 
cials— in  response  to  an  appeal  giv- 
en in  The  Varsity  and  over  station 

"The  first  big  hurdle  is  past." 
Gzowski  said.  "But  we'll  have  to 
keep  working  to  elect  Pogo  with  a 
Canadian  vote." 

All  those  who  sent  in  advice 
cards  are  eligible  for  the  I  Go  Po- 
go buttons. 

CCF  Leader 
Says  Wealth 
Not  Shared 

"Despite  our  unprecedented  ec- 
onomic expansion  and  production, 
large  sections  of  our  people  do  not 
benefit  adequately  from  the  in- 
creased production  of  wealth.". 
Donald  C.  MacDonald  told  students 
at  University  College  yesterday. 

Speaking  to  the  Co-opernlive 
Commonwealth  University  Federa- 
tion, the  Ontario  CCF  leader  out- 
lined the  objectives  of  socialism. 

Twenty-five  students  were  pres- 
ent at  the  lunch-hour  meeting  to 
hear  Mr.  MacDonald  say  that  when 
the  basic  economic  needs  of  man- 
kind were  met,  desks  would  be 
cleared  for  tackling  the  basic 
problems  of  socialism.  We  are  now 
reaching  the  threshold  of  this  task, 
he  said. 

Rumor  Only 

Word  has  it  that  a  French 
starlet  will  visit  the  Toronto 
campus  to  head  the  United  Ap- 
peal drive.  Rumor  also  says  a 
date  with  her  will  be  raffled 
off.  Hope  it's  true.

THE  VARSITY.  Friday,  October  12th,  1956 

Eleven  Rhodes  Scholarships  will 
be  awarded  to  Canadians  this 
year  early  in  December. 

Deadlines  for  applications  for 
these  scholarships,  tenable  at  the 
University  of  Exford,  England  is 
November  J. 

Applicants  are  selected  without 
the  aid  of  a  written  examination 
on  the  basis  of  scholastic  and 
literary  attainment,  qualities  of 
character,  and  physical  vigour. 

"A  Rhodes  Scholar  is  not  select- 
ed only  on  an  academic  basis," 
said  Dean  Ian  Macdonald  of  Uni- 
versity College,  himself  a  Rhodes 
Scholar.  "The  selection  committee 
is  not  looking  for  merely  a  book- 
worm but  a  man  of  broad  in- 
terests —  one  who  would  take 
what  he  had  learned  at  Oxford 
back  to  his  respective  country  and 
communicate  it  to  his  fellow  man." 

The  Scholarships  were  establish- 
by  Cecil  Rhodes  in  his  will.  Mr. 
Rhodes  (1852-1903)  was  an  emin- 
ent scholar  at  Oxford  in  the  1890's. 
After  about  one  years  study  there 
he    went   to    Kimberley,  South 

Africa  where  he  proceeded  to 
make  a  fortune  founding,  owing 
and  managing  diamohd  mines. 
During  this  period  he  commuted 
back  and  forth  to  Oxford  five 
times  in  order  to  obtain  his  de- 

Under  Rhodes'  will,  scholarships 
were  awarded  annually  to  stud- 
ent of  Commonwealth  countries, 
the  United  States  and  Germany 
to  restore  Anglo-Saxon  unity. 
During  the  World  Wars,  Ger- 
many's scholarships  were  discon- 
tinued but  were  re-established  in 
the  period  between.  As  yet  these 
have  not  been  set  up  again  due 
to  lack  of  funds. 

Scholarships  are  to  the  value 
of  £600  for  two  years  with  the 

possibility  of  a  third  year.  A 
candidate  must  among  other 
things,  be  male  unmarried,  and 
remain  so  throughout  the  dur- 
ation of  the  scholarship. 

Rhodes  Scholarships  are  open  to 
anyone  in  any  faculty  in  the  uni- 
versity, not  just  to  students  in 
Arts"  Colleges. 

The  eleven  scholarships  are  al- 
lotted two  to  Ontario,  two  to  Que- 
bec, one  each  to  Alberta,  British 
Columbia,  Manitoba,  New  Bruns- 
wick, Newfoundland,  Nova  Scotia, 
and  Saskatchewan. 

Complete  information  and  ap- 
plication forms  are  obtainable 
from  the  University  Registrar  in 
Simcoe  Hall.

WUS  Conference 

Plans,  Budgets,  Tours 

The  national  conference  of 
World  University  Service  in  Can- 
ada was  held  in  Montreal  last 
weekend.  The  delegates  from  the 
universities  across  Canada— 

—discussed  the  aims  of  WUS-to 
promote  international  understand- 
ing through 

1.  mutual  asistances  and  ma- 
terial aid. 

2.  sharing   of   knowledge  and 

3.  personal  encounter, 
—discussed    the    possibility  of 

inviting  Russian  students  and 
faculty  to  visit  Canada:  agreed 
to  this  in  principle,  but  no  action 
be  taken,  pending  consultation 
with  universities. 

—in  a  meeting  of  the  delegates 
from  seven  Ontario  universities, 
chaired  by  Joan  Fidler,  (III  Vic) 
applauded  the  idea  of  auctioning 
freshies  to  boost  the  Share  cam- 

—heard  Dean  Ian  Macdonald  re- 
port on  the  16  WUS  scholarship 
students,  and  met  the  two  on  the 
Toronto  campus.  Beatrice  Amar- 
teifio  and  Mihoko  Shimizu. 

—under  the  leadership  of  Father 
Dorsey,  discussed  the  purpose  and 
effectiveness  of  the  summer  study 
tour  program. 

—were  graciously  entertained  by 
the  students'  council  of  the  U.  of 
M.,  and  by  the  City  of  Montreal. 

—heard  Montreal  City  Council- 
lor Dr.  Leon  Lortie  speak  on  new 
aspects  of  the  social  and  economic 
development  of  French  Canada. 

—set  the  campaign  target  for 
1956-57  at  $20,000;  $5,000  to  be 
divided  among  student  projects  in 
Indonesia,  Nepal,  India,  Japan. 
Hong  Kong  and  Central  Africa. 

—applauded  Father  Dorsey  for 
his  simplified  budget. 

—re-elected  for  the  coming  year 
—President  Dr.  Sydney  Smith; 
Chairman—  Dr.  John  Morgan;  and 
other  officers  from  Toronto  — 
Father  Dorsey.  Dr.  John  Morgan. 

Dr.  John  Coleman,  Dean  Ian 
Macdonald.  Martin  Friedland 
(Schol  of  Law),  and  Ann  Jeffrey 
(IV  Trinity). 

—stressed  the  equal  partnership 
of  faculty  and  students  in  WUS. 

— reported  progress  in  plane  for 
a  summer  study  tour  in  the  Gold 

Twenty-seven  of  thirty-five 
hopeful  dancers  were  left  with- 
out jobs  and  surrounding  en- 
gineers, hating  to  see  so  much  fe- 
male talent  escape  took  quick 
action.  Four  determined  engineers 
began  writing  a  new  act  ex- 
clusively for  girls. 

The  try  outs  were  "really  great" 
Don  Elliott  said.  He's  one  of  the 
engineers  who  helped  judge. 
Final  judgement  was  left  to 
choreographer  Arline  Patterson. 
Elliott  said,  "Though  I'm  no  judge, 
I'm  very  pleased  with  what  I 
Skule  Nite  56-57.  It  for  girls  only, 
atoi's  should  really  enjoy  it." 

The  show  is  shaping  up.  but 
there's  always  room  for  more  tal- 
ent if  anyone's  interested,  he  said.

the  bulletin  board 

The  engineers  had  given  us  some  hope.  Perhaps, 
at  last,  through  their  inspired  initiative, -the  SAC 
would  have  a  bulletin  board. 

They  took  it  -from  its  tin  cavern  in  Varsity  stadium 
and  placed  it  in— of  all  the  silly  places  for  a  bulletin 
board— a  prominent  position. 

But  the  administration,  or  the  police,  or  the  SAC, 
or  the  superintendent's  office,  or  somebody,  has 
pushed  it  to  the  ground,  turned  it  upside  down,  and 
chained  it  to  the  fence  beside  the  book  store. 

the  liquor  board 

This  wondrous,  wealthy,  booming  province  of 
ours  has  the  stupidest  liquor  laws  imaginable. 

The  Liquor  Control  Act  of  Ontario— ostensibly 
passed  as  a  compromise  between  the  temperance  ad- 
dicts and  the  horrid,  horrid  drinkers— is  in  fact,  a  pow- 
erful force  toward  drunkenness.  It  has  almost  become 
a  truism  that  cities  in  the  U.S.,  Quebec,  or  any  of  the 
areas  with  laxer  liquor  legislation,  publicly  exhibit  a 
lesser  number  of  distasteful  innebriates  than  does, 
say,  Toronto. 

Closing  the  beverage  rooms  of  Ontario  from  6:30 
to  eight  o'clock  in  the  evening  theoretically  makes  the 
too-heavy  drinker  take  some  time  off  for  supper.  In 
fact,  it  forces  him  to  faster  and  more  frantic  consump- 
tion as  he  strives  to  down  a  satisfactory  amount  be- 
fore the  cry  of  "Time." 

The  theory  that  allowing  waiters  to  serve  only 
one  beer  to  a  customer  at  a  time  ("can't  serve  you  till 
you've  drained  that  one,  sir")  is  similarly  inverted 
logic.  Everyone  gulps  beer  till  it  flows  out  of  his  ears 
in  an  effort  not  to  miss  the  current  round  of  service. 

The  bigoted  prohibition  of  advertising  from  the 
alcoholic  beverage  industry  does  nothing  more  than 
deprive  commercial  communication  media  of  a  much 
needed  source  of  income.  Advertising  may  effect  the 
distribution  of  sales  among  various  alcohol  producers. 
It  does  not  affect  their  total  quantity. 

No  amount  of  advertising  could  increase  liquor 
consumption  in  Ontario. 

The  basic  thinking  behind  the  Liquor  Control  Act 
—the  thinking  that  would  force  even  visitors  to  record 
their  purchases  in  a  little  green  book  that  costs  the 
government  more  to  administer  than  they  can  make 
by  its  sale-is  designed  to  give  the  consumer  so  much 
slimy  pleasure  in  beating  the  law,  that  it  is,  in  fact,  a 
great  contributor  toward  what  it  was  written  to  pre- 
vent. '  • 

nobody's  bored 

The  '  cheerleaders,  we  understand,  have  new, 
white  uniforms.  When  they  cheer,  they're  going  to 
take  their  blazers  off. 

AAcGill,  for  the  first  time  ever,  has  female  cheer- 

It  should  be  quite  a  weekend.

The  following  is  a  reprint 
of  a  letter  sent  home  by  a 
freshman  in  one  of  our  Arts 
colleges,  apparently  written 
after  he  read  "Making  the 
Most  of  Your  College  Career," 
written  by  Prof.  Karl  H. 
Bernhardt  and  his  son,  David. 
Dear  Folks: 

Well,  you  sure  don't  have  to 
worry  about  your  little  old  son 
coming  home  all  full  of  those 
radical  ideas  you  were  worried 
about  before  I  left  home.  When 
I  get  back  to  our  home  town, 
after  three  years  of  what  they 
call  "higher  education",  I'll  be 
just  the  same  "sweet,  simple 
boy"  (as-you  used  to  say)  as 
left  there  this  fall. 

I  know  you  fought  that 
some  of  these  new  ideas  would 
catch  hold  of  me  and  make  me 
a  real  wild  character.  But  not 
at  this  university,  they  won't. 
No  sir. 

I  bought  this  book,  you  see, 
written  by  a  professor  at  this 
university  and  his  son,  who's  a 
student  here.  It's  supposed  to 
tell  you  how  to  get  through 
college.  And  boy,  they've  sure 
got  it  all  taped.  Just  like  dad 
keeps  the  horses  under  control 
out  in  the  field. 

This  book  tells  you  how  to 
do  jus^  about  everything  you 
need  to  know  about  going  to 
college.  For  instance,  every 
morning,  when  you  get  out  of 
bed,  you  just  look  at  your  time- 
table and  it  tells  you  you're 
supposed  to  have  breakfast. 
Every  morning,  you  could  never 
forget.  Eight  o'clock— except 
Sundays,  when  it's  nine. 

And  as  for  studying.  Why 
it's  all  there,  prepared  for  you. 
You  just  follow  the  timetable. 
Every  period  that  you  don't 
have  a  class  is  taped  for  some 
special  kind  of  study.  If  you 
don't  have  a  particular  subject 
to  work  on,  you  can  have  a 
buffer  period.  That's  for  when 
you  have  a  real  hard  time 
making  up"  your  timetable,  and 
something's  left  over. 

Lunch  and  dinner  and  every- 
"  thing's  on  there.  (Well,  you  do 
have  to  figure  out  when  to  go 
to  the  bathroom,  but  a  fellow 
should  do  some  thinking  for 

But  the  best  part  of  all  is 
when  you  come  to  the  weekend 
Yes,  sir.  This  professor  sure 
figures  it  out  for  you  so  you 
don't  work  all  the  time.  There's 
times  for  going  to  the  theatre 
theatre,  theatre;  and  hours  for 
your  date,  date,  date.  But  I 
wish  they'd  tell  you  where  to 
get  three  girls  in  an  evening. 

Anyway,  you  can  see  it's 
all  working  out  fine.  There's  no 
time  for  getting  into  trouble, 
or  picking  up  any  of  those 
dangerous  contacts  we  were 
talking  about  the  night  before 
I  left  for  the  "Big  Town." 

There's  no  time  for  meeting 
any  dangerous  people-  As  a 
matter  of  fact,  that's  one  thing, 
that's  worried  me.  There's  no 
time  for  meeting  anybody  at 
all. -Oh,  I  guess  if  worst  came 
to  worst,  you  could  spend  one 
of  your  buffer  periods  talking 
to  people. 

So  I  guess  you  won't  be  wor- 
rying anymore.  That  Mr.  Smith, 

you  know,  who  said  evei-ybj

Fur  Trade 

The  Fur  Trade  in  Canada: 
Edited  by  R.  M.  Maolver  and 
Mary  Q.  Innis.  (Toronto:  The 
I .  of  I .  i'ress,  1956.  JPriee: 

The  Fur  Trade  in  Canada  is 
the  revised  edition  of  an  econo- 
mic study  influential  for  twen- 
ty-five years  and  out  of  print 
for  some  time. 

Fresh  references  are  to  books 
or  articles  which  appeared  after 
the  publication  of  the  Irinis 
study  in  1930.  This  book  is  a 
fundamental  contribution  to 
economic  thought  in  Canada  by 
an  economist  who,  because  of 
his  profound  influence  upon  his 
subject  has  attained  interna- 
tional recognition. 

One  of  the  most  absorbing 
conflicts  reported  in  the  col- 
umns of  last  year's  Varsity  was 
that  between  the  Lord's  Day 
Alliance  and  the  Hart  House 
Orchestra  Associates. 

The  facts  were  that  a  group 
of  students  decided  they  would 
like  to  arrange  a  series  of  con- 
certs to  be  given  in  the  Great 
Hall  of  Hart  House  by  a  pro- 
fessional orchestra  on  the  Sab- 
bath. In  accordance  with  the 
notorious  Blue  Laws  of  this  city 
the  Alliance  threatened  to  pro- 
secute the  Associates,  on  the 
grounds  that  it  is  illegal  to 
charge  admission  for  entertain- 
ments on  Sundays. 

The  series  were  cancelled  un- 
til the  Associates  were  able  to 
arrange  a  workable  compromise 
with  the  Alliance,  but  even 
now,  the  Alliance  indirectly 
dictates  and  thus  restricts  the 
operation  of  the  Associates.  The 
comments  which  the  situation 
psovoked  were  widespread.  It 
is  indeed  strange  that,  as  Dean 
Neel  said,  you  can  play  Hockey, 
but  not  Handel  on  Sundays. 

There  has  been  some  mis- 
understanding among  students 
about  the  relationship  between 
Hart  House,  the  Orchestra  and 
the  Associates,  who  are  all 
rolled  into  one  title.  The  Or- 
chestra is  a  group  of  profes- 

-  The  Roylal  Danish  Ballet  is  royal  indeed,  judging  from 
advance  publicity.  Situated  in  Copenhagen  for  two  and  a 
half  centuries,  its  productions  were  royally  lavish,  with 
magnificent  sets,  costumes  and  technical  virtuosity.  These 
regal  productions  are  being  brought  to  Toronto's  Maple 
Leaf  Gardens  on  October  fifteenth  and  sixteenth. 

The.  Danish  Ballet  are  world  renowned  for  their  ela- 
borate productions,  for  their  aerial  feats  and  'for  the 
brilliance  of  their  male  dancers.  But  they  have,  it  seems, 

Royal  Danish  Ballet 

much  more  to  offer  that  is  superlative— dancers  who  can 
act,  ballets  that  Canadians  have  never  seen  before,  and 
a  style  that  is  unique  with  this  company'. 

This  style  is  due  to  the  great  Danish  choreographer, 
August  Bournville.  Of  his  magical  ballets,  Toronto  will  see 
"La  Ventana"  and  "Napoli",  both  new  to  Canada.  The  third 
act*of  "Napoli",  a  full  length  ballet,  is  considered' so  super- 
lative that  it  is  performed  separately  in  Denmark  and  only 
on  special  occasions.  It  is  this  third  act  that  Toronto  will 

"Napoli,"  a  technically 
brilliant  work,  "La  Sonnam- 
bula,"  and  a  ballet  comique. 
"Whims  of  Cupid,"  will  be 
performed  on  the  fifteenth, 
and  on  the  sixteenth,  "La 
Ventura,"  "Dream  Pictures," 
and  the  original  "La  Syl- 
phide."  And  even  this  varied 
programme  does  not  exhaust 
the  Danish  repertoire. 

sional  musicians  selected  from 
the  foremost  players  in  Toronto 
by  the  Dean  of  the  Royal  Con- 
servatoiy  or  Music,  Boyd  Neel, 
who  is  also  their  conductor. 
They  are  allowed  to  use  the 
name  of  Hart  House  as  a  spe- 
cial privilege,  in  the  same  way 
as  the  pioneer  quartet  of  the 
Thirties  was  allowed  to  do  so. 

The    Orchestra  is 

a  pioneer 

group,  insofar  as  it  is  the  fii 
Canadian  venture  of  its  kind 
to  play  regularly  outside  of 
broadcasting  studios.  That  is 
the  only  link  with  Hart  House. 

The  Associates  consist  of  an 
executive  of  eight  students  and 
its  members.  The  executive 
makes  al!  arrangements  neces- 
sary for  the  Orchestra  to  ap- 
pear on  Campus.  This  involves 
obtaining  permission  to  use  the 
Great  Hall  of  Hart  House, 
which  has  been  most  graciously 
given  —  reserving  rehearsal 
space  —  publicity  —  public  rela- 
tions— arranging  lectures,  dates 
of  concerts  and  obtaining  mem- 
bers. The  Associates  also  plan 
the  concert  programmes :  in 
the  current  series,  50%  of  the 
works  were  selected  by  the  Con- 
ductor and  the  rest  came  from 
suggestions  by  the  Associates, 
with  the  problem  of  reconciling 
musical  tastes  that  demand  the 
familiar  and  esoteric,  classic 
and  romantic,  contemporary 
and  Canadian. 

The  aim  of  the  Associates  is 
to' encourage  an  appreciation 
of  good  music  on  the  Campus 
through  the  Hit  House  Orches- 
tra   by   making   its  concerts 

available  at  a  rate  within  the 
means  of  the  students.  The 
members  may  also  attend  the 
lectures  and  rehearsals  ar- 
ranged Dy  the  Associates.  This 
year,  these  total  10  rehearsals, 
a  lecture  and  5  concerts.  The 
Associates  are  also  arranging 
a  series  of  Hi-Fi  concerts  at 
Victoria,  St.  Michael's  and  on 
the  Carnegie  Record  Collection 
equipment,  housed  in  the  new 
Mechanical  Building. 

As  far  as  the  concerts  them- 
selves are  concerned,  last  year 
they  were  greeted  with  tremen- 
dous enthusiasm.  The  Great 
Hall  of  Hart  House  is  an  ideal 
setting  for  such  music-making. 
Any  sense  of  stuffiness  was  dis- 
pelled by  the  witty  remarks 
with  which  Dean  Neel  prefaced 
each  piece.  The  audience  will 
not  forget  the  magnificent  way 
in  which  he  pronounced  the 
word  Vivaldi.  The  performances 
of  the  players  were  of  an  ex- 
ceedingly high  standard  and 
matched  those  of  the  Dean's 
English  Orchestra  of  world  re- 

There  are  few  Universities 
who  support  a  band  of  profes- 
sional players  of  such  calibre. 
There  are  plenty  of  student 
orchestras,  some  laced  with 
professionals,  but'  we  believe 
that  the  present  status  of  the 
Hart  House  Orchestra  Is  unique, 
and  that  it  is  worthy  of  the 
continued  support  of  all  mem- 
bers of  this  University  through 
the  Associates.

Incomparably  the  most  powerful  of  their  three  performances 
has  been  reserved  till  the  last  by  the  Old  Vic  Players.  "Richard 
II",  the  gem  of  the  histories,  is  vintage  Shakespeare.  The  ploi 
of  "Richard  II"  runs  on  the  greased  wheel  of  the  full  tragic 
cycle,  culminating  in  the  forced  abdication  of  an  awakened 
monarch.  Those  who  saw  John  Neville  play  Richard  will  awail 
hjs  Hamlet.  He  developed  adroitly  from  the  insouciant  vaurien 
of  Act  I  to  the  disarmingly  tragic  hero  of  the  denouement,  whOS 
nobility  of  mein  and  manner  obliges  tenderness  to  well  up  in  a 
spectator  and  a  recognition  that 

"this  fool  of  valour  was  a  royal  king." 

The  supporting  cast  was  valiant.  There  was  no  weakness  in 
them.  Versatile  Paul  Rogers  made  John  of  Gaunt  the  eloquent 
oracle  of  "this  happy  breed  of  men  .  .  .  this  England",  torn  be- 
tween Taiquinian  Bolingbroke  (Charles  Gray)  and  no  less  force- 
ful Mowbray  (Jack  Gwillim).  Richard  Wordsworth  caricatured 
ambivalence  as  York,  Richard's  maundering  deputy  paralysed  by 
divided  loyalties.  The  appearance  of  the  wizened  wee  wisp  who 
served  York  i Aubrey  Morris)  deserves  mention.  The  Bishop  of 
Cailyle's  (Denis  Holmes)  refusal  to  support  Bolingbrokc's  coup 
rang  with  the  conviction  of  the  church  militant. 

Leslie  Hurry's  costumes  and  stage-set  maintained  their  high 
standard  of  handsome  utility.  Gothic  side  arches  and  a  low-bridged 
stage  centre  are  really  all  Mr.  Hurry  ever  requires.

This  story  of  a  sacred  grove  at  Rice  Lake,  although  it  raises 
along  with  the  problem  of  the  monument's  origin  the  entire 
question  of  Ontario's  pre-history,  is  disappointingly  slight  from 
the  viewpoint  of  a  reader  interested  in  the  significance  of  the 
oak  grove  cult  of  the  dead  that  permeated  the  thought  of  these 
people  designated  Hopewellians,  the  third  agricultural  group  to 
emigrate  to  Canada  from  Ohio.  Professor  Carpenter  is  reluctant 
to  venture,  but  he  does  hint,  that  the  Iroquois  may  owe  a  portion

its  greatest  intimacy  at  this  lime.  One  is  surprised  to  read  that 
the  hunter  and  farmer  achieved  a  balanced  existence,  that  plants

A  Chemical 
Engineering  Student 

Wants  to  Know 
About  a  Career 
with  Du  Pont 


What  security  and  benefits  are  available 
to  Du  Pont  of  Canada  employees? 

JOHN  W.  POUOCK  expects  to  receive  his  Bachelor's  degree  in  Chemical 
Engineering  in  the  spring  of  1957  from  the  University  of  Alberta.  He  is 
a  member  of  Delta  Tbeta  Fraternity  and  of  the  Engineering  Students 
"  Society  on  the  campus.  Naturally  he  is  interested  in  selecting  a  permanent 
•  employer  on  graduation  and  right  now  is  asking  the  kind  of  questions 
I  which  help  him  to  select  the  right  job  and  plan  a  successful  career. 

NORMAN  LUNDY  answers: 

First  of  all,  John,  the  opportunities  to  achieve  individual  success 
through  initiative,  ingenuity,  and  personal  merit  are  what  should 
really  count  in  anyone's  assessment  of  security  and  benefits.  This 
,  always  results  in  "job  security"  in  the  broadest  sense  and  should 
be  considered  much  more  important  to  a  young  man  than  "security" 
i  used  in  its  narrowest  sense,  where  a  Company's  employee  benefits 
are  the  main  criteria. 

Du  Pont  of  Canada  has  always  recognized  the  importance  of 
•  employee  benefit  plans  in  contributing  to  morale. 

A  retirement  and  disability  pension  plan  is  available  to  employees 
;  aft  no  cost  to  themselves.  In  addition,  they  may  contribute  a  percentage 
of  their  earnings  to  a  supplementary  retirement  fund  if  they  wish  to 
.  arrange  for  even  larger  pension  payments. 

Two  life  insurance  plans  are  also  provided.  The  cost  of  one  is 
borne  entirely  by  the  Company,  while  the  second  permits  an  employee 
to  participate  at  reduced  rates. 

In  the  event  of  illness  or  disability,  salary  payments  are  normally 
made  up  to  three  months  with  extensions,  depending  on  circumstances. 
The  Company  also  assists  employees  and  their  families  to  carry 
health  insurance  protection  by  contributing  a  portion  of  the  cost. 

In  addition  to  the  customary  two  weeks1  holidays,  the  vacation 
plan  provides  an  additional  week  after  15  years'  service  and  a  total 
of  four  weeks  after  25  years. 

Another  important  factor  contributing  to  job  security  is  the  in- 
creasing diversification  of  the  Company's  product  lines,  in  addition, 
the  Company  haB  an  alert  and  energetic  organization  in  which  a 
good  balance  is  maintained  between  experienced  judgment  and  youth- 
ful enthusiasm.  The  results  of  outstanding  research  worly  in  both 
Canada  and  the  United  States  are  also  available.  This  combination 
of  factors  should  result  in  rapid  advances  in  a  variety  of  phases  «>! 
the  growing  chemical  industry  in  Canada. 

So  to  answer  your  question,  John,  Du  Pont  of  Canada  offers 
security  not  only  through  progressive  employee  benefit  plans  but, 
more  important,  by  the  opportunity  of  achieving  personal  success  in 
an  expanding  organization. 

NORMAN  R.  LUNDY  received  his  B.Sc.  in 
Chemistry  from  the"  University  of  Alberta 
i-n  May  1941  and'  during  the  following 
month  joined  Defence  Industries  Limited 
at  the  Winnipeg  Works.  In  1943  he  trans- 
ferred to  the  Nylon  Spinning  Plant  at 
Kingston,  Ontario,  and  later  to  the  Shaw- 
inigsn  (Quebec)  Works.of  the  Films  Divi- 
sion, where  he^.TB  presently  Technical 
'  Superintendent.  In  his  fifteen  years'  serv- 
ice. Norm  has  watched  the  continued 
expansion  of  the  Company  and  the  im- 
plementation of  new  and  expanded  em- 
ployee benefit  plans  and  as  such  is  well 
qualified  to  answer  the  question.

trouncing  of   Queen's  Cornets 

Baby  Blues  are  heavy  favour- 
i  to  achieve  their  aim.

fsing  a  modified  Split-T  forma-

i  the  Junior  Blues  boast  a

ugh  averaging  only  170  pounds, 
kes  up  for  their  deficiency  in 
ight  in  their  super-abundance

Ted  Ingson,  although  weighing 
only  140  pounds,  was  a  standout 
performer  at  guard  in  their  first 

Popular  Position 

The  Baby  Blues  have  no  less 
than  five  fullbacks,  all  seeing  regu- 
lar action.  The  list  includes  Bill 
Naylor,  John  Spence,  Don  Cornish, 
Bob  Hart,  and  Al  Connolly.  At  end 
and  recently  chosen  captain  of  the 
team  is  Bob  Lee. 

Double-Threat  Quarterbacks 

With  Forstner  and  Nick  Sopinka 
alternating  at  quarterback,  the  In- 
termediates feature  a  strong  run- 
ning attack,  but  one  which  can  al- 
so take  to  the  air  occasionally  to 
keep  the  opposition  honest.

Opposition    Strength  Untested 

While  the  Ted  Toogood  coached 
Ryerson  Rams  are  unknown  quan- 
tities. Baby  Blue  coach  McMurty 
has  enough  confidence  in  his  boys 
to  predict  an  easy  win. 

In  the  game  in  Kingston,  pint- 
sied  Al  Connolly  and  Ian  Knowles 
were  brilliant  at  running  back 
punts.  Connolly  makes  up  in  de- 
termination what  he  lacks  in  size. 
He  might  even  be  called  Varsity's 
answer  to  Ronnie  Stewart. 

Othe  stalwarts  on  the  line  are 
Ron  Whiteside.  Julien  Porter  and 
Bruce  Klien.  The  Baby  "Blues  ex- 
pect the  Rams  to  have  a  strong 
passing  attack  and  so  have  sressed 
pass  defence  in  all  their  practices 
this  week.  And  as  for  the  inury 
situation,  the  only  intermediate 
player  on  th  limp  is  Bill  Trimble, 
and  he  is  a  doubtful  starter  today. 

The  boys  have  the  ability,  all 
they  need  now  is  the  support  of 
Varsity  fans. 


John  6rook7{ 
Sports  Editor* 

Toy  the  past  few  weeks  a  group 
35  aspiring  members  of  the 
nior  SPS  football  team  have 
m  holding  practices.  On  Mon- 
y  about  25  of  them  will  take 
>  field  against  last  year's  Mu- 
rk Cup  winners,  Victoria.  Co- 
ach John  Short,  who,  along  with 
in  Hart,  directs  the  Skulemen, 
rees  that  Vic  is  the  team  to  beat 
is  year. 

ihe  Skule  attack  will  consist 
an  assortment  of  seasoned  per- 
rmers  plus  several  graduates 
^m  the  ranks  of  last  years  jun- 
r  team.  The  team  is  composed  of 
number  of  veteran  players  who 
e  already  established  perform- 
s  and  they  hapen  to  occupy  most 
the  key  positions  on  the  team, 
le  rest  of  the  team,  however,  is 
question  mark  and  the  success 
the  squad  will  depend  on  their

The  backfield  promises  to  be 
;ry  strong.  This  is  especially  true 
hen  one  notes  the  presence  of 
en  Selby,  whom  Short  calls, 
>Ur  bread  and  butter  man".  The

Although  Meds  made  a  surpris- 
ng  cume-back  in  the  second  in- 
iing  yesterday,  St.  Mike's  out- 
.layed  them  to  lend  8-4  in  the  wo- 
aan's  softball  game.  Nancy  Mar- 
ini  and  Marg  liuper,  two  St.  Mikes 
litters,  blasted  their  way  to  fame 
yith  a  rash  of  well-hit  balls.  Eil- 
een Dilon  struck  out  two  batters 
i-hen  she  stepped  in  to  replace 
■ltigs  Holland,  who  had  difficulty 
utching  steady  ball. 

The  Meds  team  settled  down  af- 
et  the  first  inning,  in  spite  of  be- 
ng  handicapped  by  a  weak  out- 
laid, but  Kam  Cleary  weilded  her 
>at  like  an  old  pro. 

St.  Hildas,  beware!  The  Meds 
nanagers  are  coaching  those  girls 
;ast  and  furiously!

At  the  same  time  in  the  Stadium, 
the  enthusiastic  P.&O.T.  home 
team  trounced  Vic.  II  to  win  4-2 
in  only  one  and  one-half  innings. 

A  violent  but  bloodless  argument 
between  the  Umpire  and  the  coa- 
ches robbed  valuable  playing  time. 
The  controversy  involved  Joyce 
Slark.  an  energetic  Vic  player  who 
had  already  scored  a  run  and 
caught  a  fly— and  now  found  her- 
self  lost  on  third.  The  Uump  won 
(naturally)  and  the  v-rdici  was

offense  will  again  work  from 
Skule's  "traditional"  straight-T 
formation.  The  success  of  this  of- 
fense will  depend  largely  on  the 
men  who  direct  it  from  quarter- 
back. This  year,  Stu  Clements  and 
Neil  Perkins,  both  former  juniors, 
are  holding  down  this  vital 
position.  Eckels  and  Russel  pro- 
vide two  excellent  receivers  and 
both  are  veterans  of  last  year's 

On  defense,  the  Engineers  boast 
two  fine  tackles  in  Westwood  and 
Furgol.  The  rest  of  the  line,  al- 
though high  in  weight  and  desire, 
s  still  a  question  mark. 

The  defnsive  star  of  the  team, 
however,  is  Ed  Rohacek,  who  will 
see  plenty  of  action  at  the  centre- 
linebacker  position. 

Serious  Challenge 
In  order*  to  really  judge  the 
team  it  would  be  necessary  to  see 
them  in  action.  Nevertheless,  the 
Skule  squad  enjoys  a  multitude 
of  talent  in  the  key  position  and 
if  the  rest  of  the  squad  measures 
up,  the  Engineers  will  be  in  a 
position  to  seriously  challenge 
Victoria  for  the  cup. 

In  addition  to  the  Vic  SPS  clash, 
football  action  will  open  on  three 
other  fronts  ne*t  week.  On  Tues- 
day Trinity,  now  in  Group  II  will 
oppose  junior  SPS  while  on  Wed- 
nesday St,  Mikes  meets  UC  in  the 
latter's  first  game  in  Group  I. 
Thursday,  the  strong  combination 
of  Forestry-Pharmacy  will  clash 
with  Dentistry.  Check  the  Varsity 
schedules  for  time  and  place.

(Continued  from  Page  1) 
pardy,  doulble  no  less,  as  the  lad- 
dies from  the  mountain  are  feel- 
ing very  rocky  about  what  hap- 
pens to  their  own  vile  McGUl 
team  if  Benny  is  being  left  free 
to  adjust  the  fates  in  favour  of 
his  own  Varsity  Blues  so  that  they 
shrink  the  already  somewhat 
diminuetive  heads  of  the 
Hiawathas  from  Montreal  and 
toddles  on  to  a  smashing  victory. 

"And  now",  simpers  Solly  as  he 
raises  my  hair  on  ends  by  tugging 
it  madly."  they  are  after  you." 
This  is  plainly  unnerving  Soft- 
Focus  but  I  remain  calm,  and 
tremble  in  a  very  restrained  man- 
ner indeed  as  befits  a  gentle  con 
who  has  the  situation  well  in 
hind  which  is  a  sight  better  than 
other  ways. 

It  is  turning  out,  as  Soft-Focus 
tells  it,  that  my  end  is  planned, 
which  is  surprising  to  me  as  I 
always  think  it  is  like  Topsy  and 
is  just  growing  and  growing  with 
no  definite  end  in  view.  The  Bad- 
dies from  the  dark  province  hope 
other  wise  however  and  they 
hire  Mr.  Enigma  who  sends  Tark 
and  Flattop  Junior  after  me  with 
Mary  Worth  coaching  sagely  in 
the  background. 

But  these  invincible  opponents 
do  not  unnerve  me  and  I  simply 
call  for  Winslade  who  mesmerizes 
them  temporarily  while  I  am 
pounding  out  my  calls  on  the  tom- 
tom which  I  make  of  Flat-top's 
head,  using  Mary  Worth's  big  nose 
for  an  antenna. 

The  Reddies  from  McGill  are 
still  smarting  over  their  rough 
handling  of  the  week  previous  but 
it  does  not  help  them  as  they  do 
not  complete  the  process  but  stay 
as  dumb  as  ever  while  the  Blues 
from  Varsity  go  Hog  Town  wili 
and  make  pigs  of  themselves  as 
they  swill  up  the  score  to  five 
touchies  less  a  singleton  in  con- 
verts. The  McGills,  though,  ham 
up  the  show  and.  while  they  make 
a  nice  sty  of  it  do  not  get  to  touch 
the  pigskin  overly  much  and  can 
only  bristle  indignantly  while 
they  get  a  field  goal  and  no  more. 

It's  all  over  but  the  weeping  and  the  suicides.  I'm  seriously 
contemplating  the  latter,  and  doing  quite  a  bit  of  the  former.  And 
the  shouting.  Example:  "Well,  Brooks,  what  have  you  got  to  say 


What  can  I  say?  Not  much.  Extend  a  handkerchief- clad  paw 
to  Messrs.  Ford,  Sturdivant,'  Larsen  and  Kucks.  Wonder  how  my 
beloved  Bums  can  collapse  to  the  extent  of  only  13  hits  in  four 
ball  games.  And  lastly,  give  a  sympathy  put  to  Roy  Campanella 
and  Don  Newconibe. 

Although  it  was  big.  Newk  who  took  the  loss,  the  turning  point 
in  that  last  game  was  Campy's  fluff  of  a  foul  tip  off  Berra's  bat 
in  the  third.  That  pitch,  had  it  been  caught,  would  have  retired 
the  Yankees  with  the  score  still  2-0.  Yogi,  as  we  know  only  too 
well,  plastered  the  next  pitch  onto  Bedford  Avenue,  and  just  about 
broke  the  Dodgers'  backs. 

I  can't  even  say  "Wait  till  next  year."  For  with  Robinson, 
Reese  and  Co.  pretty  well  at  the  end  of  the  trail,  it  could  be  a 
good  many  years  before  the  Bums  hit  the  top  again. 

Dalt  White  and  his  Blues  can  haul  down  a  pretty  important 
win  tomorrow  afternoon  in  Montreal's  Molson  Stadium.  A  victory 
for  the  Blues  would  keep  them  right  near  the  top  of  the  league 
standings.  Should  Queen's  defeat  Western  (and  it's  not  impossible 
in  Richardson  Stadium,  Kingston),  the  Blues  could  take  over  sole 
possession  of  rung  number  one  on  the  ladder. 

In  good  spirits  despite  the  loss  of  captain  and  field  generai 
Ed  Skrzpek,  the  Blues  will  be  a  determined  squad  when  they 
board  their  train  tliis  afternoon.  They'll  have  better  than  1,000 
fans  behind  them,  and  there's  nothing  those  supporters  would  like 
better  than  to  see  Larry  Sullivan's  cocky  Redmen  ground  into 
the  Maedonald  Park  turf  by  the  big  Blue  machine. 

Last  year,  it  was  an  upset  16-9  win  for  the  McGill  lads.  The 
year  before,  Steve  Oneschuk  and  his  boys  smashed  the  Frenchmen 
clear  to  Nova  Scotia  with  a  43-6  shellacking. 
We'll  hope  for  a  repitition  of  1954. 

The  Varsity  rugger  Blues  take  off  for  a  pair  of  exhibition 
games  below  the  border  this  weekend.  Tomorrow  morning  .they 
play  Massachusets  Institute  of  Technology,  and  on  Sunday  they 
tackle  Cornell. 

Such  a  visit  by  a  Canadian  team  reminds  one  of  the  old 
International  Intercollegiate  Hockey  League,  which  flourished  for 
several  years  before  the  war.  It  could  very  well  be  that  the  day 
of  international  competition  is  just  around  the  corner. 

The  hockey  Blues  have  made  several  jaunts  south  during  the 
past  few  years,  and  the  calibre  of  the  games  played  has  been  high 
Those  people  whose  job  it  is  to  keep  an  eye  peeled  towards 
the  attendance  figures  would  jump  for  joy  it  the  day  ever  came 
when  American  visits  to  the  campus  are  as  frequent  as  those  or 
the  present  Intercollegiate  members. 
Let's  hope  for  the  best. 

There  is  a  young  gentleman  on  this  campus  who  excels  at 
just  about  every  sport  he  plays.  His  name,  very  familiar  to  followers 
of  the  hockev  Blues,  is  Johnny  Maedonald. 

As  well  as  spending  a  couple  of  seasons  with  Happy  Emms 
junior  'A'  Barrie  Fivers,  plus  a  year  on  the  roster  of  the  Varsity 
hockey  team,  John  has  made  quite  a  name  for  himself  in  lacrosse 
and  baseball  circles  as  well. 

He  played  for  the  Brampton  Excelsior  juniors,  who  recently 
travelled  to*  the  west  coast  for  the  MJnto  Cup  finals.  He  came 
right  back  from  there  and  returned  to  bis  spot  at  short-stop  tor 
the  Brampton  Major  baseball  team,  which  recently  captured  the 
all-Ontario  championship. 
He's  single,  too. 


Just  to  dispel  the  nasty  rumours  that  have  been  circulating 
around  the  campus  all  day  ...  I  was  NOT  responsible  for  the  theft 
of  300  pounds  of  cutlery  from  the  Trinity  dining  room  thu.

Now  that  the  old  rag  has  fin- 
ally stepped  into  high  gear,  the 
sports  staff  will  hold  the  first 
of  its  short  weekly  Friday  meet- 
ings today  in  the  dungeon  at 

Staff  asked  to  be  on  hand: 
Adrienne  Allen,  Molly  Palmer, 
Vioky  Wolff,  Marg  Brown,  John 
Vojtech,  Bill  Gilbert,  Stan  Weis- 
man,  Oave  Gawley.  George 
Hume,  Don  McGill,  Eddie  Leib- 
man.  and  just  about  anybody 
else  who  cares  to  drop  in. 

A  glance  at  the  St.  Mike's  foot- 
ball practice  showed  a  remark- 
ably spirited  team,  being  mould- 
ed into  shape  by  a  very  able 
coaching  staff.  The  grim  deter- 
mination and  lighthearted  sports- 
manship displayed  by  the  double 
blue  is  only  shadowed  by  their 
outstanding  ability.  They  might 
well  prove  to  be  the  team  to  beat 
in  intramural  competition  this  fall. 
The  Mulock  Cup  according  to 
those  in  the  know,  (on  the  east 
side  of  the  campus)  is  destined 
(or  the  Irish  when  the  final 
whistle  blows  this  season.  It  is 
honed,  by  all  loyal  SMC  fans,  that 
this  will  be  their  year. 

Good  Line 
I    Line  coaches  Joe  Scime  and 
.Pete  Mackert  have  shaped  their 
t  front  wall  into  one  ol  the  finest. 

if  not  the  finest,  on  the  campus 
Veterans  Gaetz,  McKenny.  Mc- 
cormick and  Burns  and  are 
bolstered  by  highly  rated  new- 
comers Callahan  and  De  Rocca. 
This  flashy  and  effective  spear- 
head will  add  colour  as  well  as 
yards  to  the  Irish  this  year. 

Backfielder  rookie  Nobby  Walsh 
is  expected  to  sparkle,  along  with 
proven  stars  Jack  Fenn  and  Ken 
Stanton,  under  the  watchful  eyes 
and  keen  leadership  shown  by  ex- 
Montreal  Als  Sam  Darragh  and 
Jack  Pellock  from  McMas'.er.  The 
■round  gaining  ability  and  fancy 
ball  handling  of  this  shifty  crew 
will  be  a  treat  to  watch  in  action. 

Quarterbacks  Kielty  and  Rca 

balanced  attack  and  with  their 
glue-like  fingers  they  are  excep- 
tional threats  in  their  league.  The 
plays  run  by  these  stars  are  real- 
ly a  treat  to  watch. 

The  St.  Mikes  team  seems  fairly 
will  balanced  and  quite  confident. 
Ex-Blue,  Joe  Scime.  line  coach  of 
the  Irish  stated  last  night;  "As 
usual  we  will  be  a  tough  team  to 
beat,  and  we  are  determined  not 
to  fade  out  in  the  end  as  we  did 
last  year."  This  prophecy,  made  by 
one  whose  opinion  might  be  con- 
sidered as  good  as  any  other  on 
the  campus,  is  one  which  the 
double  blue  will  trv  every  foot- 
ball technique  devised,  if  neces- 
sary, to  live  up  to.  All  in  all.

Two  Year  Tradition— 
Architecture  Painting 

Eighty  first  and  second  year  |  first  suggested  that  we  combine 
architecture  students  will  spend  Settlement  Work  with  our  unti- 
tles afternoon  painting  the  music  |  at^^^^^  he  said.  "We  thought  it 
school  at  University  Settlement 
—and  possibly  starting  a  tradi- 


The  painting  party  is  planned 
as  a  high  point  of  first  year  im- 
itations. "The  sophomores  will 
he  along  only  to  supervise," 
group  leader  Anthony  Valentine 
in  Arch.)  said  last  night. 

"I  am  grateful  and  happy  for 
\he  help  we  are  being  given," 
Settlement  Director  Harry  Mor- 
row said.  He  said  a  group  of 
curses  had  painted  equipment  in 
I  he  nursery  playground  in  Sep- 
tember. Another  group  is  plan- 
ning to  work  on  the  Settlement's 
camp  at  Gravenhurst. 

Two  years  ago  a  group  of 
architecture  students  spent  two 
day's  painting  the  nursery  and 
offices  at  the  Settlement. 

"Who  knows,"  Valentine  said, 
"it  may  become  a  tradition," 

"Carol  Broadhurst   (III  Med) 

was  a  great  idea." 

The  Settlement  is  the  Univer- 
sity's social  service  agency.  It 
offers  recreational  and  cultural 
activities  to  the  neighbourhood 
south  of  the  Art  Gallery.  It  has 
depended  on  volunteers  to  cairy 
out  many  of  its  services  since 
its  founding  in  1910. 

Probably  the  most  universal 
characteristic  of  the  university 
student  is  that  he  talks.  About  life, 
about  love,  in  prose,  in  print, 
over  cups,  over  mugs,  he  talks. 
So  the  unusual  thing  about  Ted 
Schafer  is  not  so  much  what  he 
says,  or  why,  but  how. 

Conversation  with  Ted  Schafer 
takes  the  form  of  a  half-hour 
weekly  chat  on  CJBC,  called  "On 
Campus".  The  unsponsored  pro- 
gram is  now  in  its  second  flourish- 
ing year;  its  purpose,  according 
to  its  originator,  is  "to  provide  a 
common  meeting  place  for  the 
university  students  of  Ontario  — 
as  cosompolitan  as  it  possibly  can 

To  this  end,  "On  Campus"  fea- 
tures news  from  the  Ontario  uni- 
versities, a  section  on  sports,  and 
a  fashions-on-campus  report.  Per- 
iodically, panel  discussions  are  ar- 
ranged on  any  subject  of  general 
interest  —  initiations,  for  example, 
or  the  role  of  student  government, 
or  the  problem  of  censorship  and 
a  campus  newspaper.  And  various 
personalities  of  the  university 
world  are  brought  before  the 

Music  has  a  large  share  of  the 
program  —  "modern  American 
music",  Ted  is  quick  to  explain, 
"NOT  jazz.  That  word  conjures 
up  all  sorts  of  bedroom  innuendo 
and  be-bop  imagery." 

Call  it  what  he  will,  Ted's  music 
has  leanings  toward  the  Modern 

Jazz  Quartet,  Brubeck,  Ellington, 
Sinatra,  June  Christie  and  Woodie 
Herman.  The  difficulty  is  to 
choose;  like  all  disc  jockeys,  Ted 
is  showered  with  sample  records, 
and  his  private  collection  how-- 
totals  nearly  four  hundred  albums; 

On-the-spot  interviews  also  pro- 
vide program  material.  Ted  has 
brought  his  tape  recordinger  into 
the  chaos  of  campus  show  rehear- 
sals, and  he  (bravely)  plans  a 
similar  excursion  to  the  office  of 
the  Varsity  on  some  busy  night. 

In  short  he,  says,  "there  aiv 
all  sorts  of  things  to  talk  about!" 

Ted's  experience  with  rajlio  has 
a  history  of  its  own.  It!  began

"We  should  be  having  children, 
not  going  "to  University."  Leon 
Schwartz  (IEng.)  said  at  the  En- 
gineering Debate  Wednesday 
noon.  Engineers  defeated  25-8  the 
motion  that  "college  life  is  not 
worth  the  price". 

Speaking  for  the  resolution 
Schwartz  said  that  students  were 
wasting  their  most  fertile  years 
and  robbing  the  country  of  an  in- 
telligent future  population. 

Al  Matthews  (II  SPS)  dis- 
agreed. He  said  the  high  propor- 
tion of  eligible  females  on  the 
campus  would  lead  to  an  earlier 
population  increase. 

Art  Pazie  (II  SPS)  said  that  for 
more  than  50%  of  University  stud- 
ents financial  returns  did  not  just- 
ify the  heavy  expenditure,  and 
jobs  were  no  easier  for  University 
Graduates  to  find  .  .  . 

"The  fact  that  90%  of  the 
population  never  attend  college 
proves  its  uselessness,"  he  said. 

The  first  negative  speaker 
Reynolds  (IV  SPS)  quoted  Can- 
adian Business  Yearbook  to  show 
the  great  demand  for  University 
grads,  even  Arts  students.  He  said 
the  average  salary  of  the  graduate 
was  sufficiently  high  to  justify 
the  expense  of  a  college  education, 
Last  year's  Engineering  Debat- 
ing- Club  chairman  Jim  Vassoff 
was  guest  speaker.  He  said  the 
undergraduates'  doubts  about  the 
value  of  their  education  would 
vanish  when  they  graduated. 

when,  during  his  Grade  X,  he 
approached  the  program  director 
of  the  local  radio  station  at 
Kitchener-Waterloo  with  an  idea 
for  a  program  on  high-school 
news.  The  idea  took  hold. 

In  the  next  year,  the  fifteen- 
minute  weekly  spot  was  extended 
to  a  half -hour,  and  during  his 
Grade  XIII  Ted  began  working  as 
a  staff  announcer  and  newscaster. 
After  his  first  year  at  university, 
he  sepnt  the  summer  announcing

he  is  more  of  a  modern  MepW

any  drastic  action  with  the  raj

Toronto  Terrible' 
As  Old  Vic  Goes 


Half-filled  houses  and  a  luke 
warm  press  reception  for  the  Old 
Vic  are  the  bitter  complaints  of 
Miss  Coral  Browne,  the  dynamic 
Lady  Macbeth  of  the  production. 

"Its  a  real  disappointment," 
she  said,  "after  the  riotous  recep- 
tion we  had  in  Montreal.  I  don't 
believe  it  can  be  blamed  on  the 
high  prices  either  .  .  .  surely 
Toronto  can  support  four  stage 
productions  at  the  same  time." 

John  Neville,  who  starred  as 
Romeo  and  Richard  II  offered 
his  solution  to  the  pathetically 
poor  attendance  problem. 

"Perhaps  the  prices  were  too 
high,  but  thats  not  our  fault. 
Maybe  we  should  have  con- 
densed the  run  to  two  weeks, 
instead  of  three. 

They  were  on  the  campus  Fri- 
day in  U.C.s  Sir  Daniel  Wilson 
men's  residence  at  the  unveling 
Of  a  picture  of  Tamburlaine.  Be- 
fore an  audience  including  Claire 
Bloom  of  the  Old  Vic,  Barbara 
Chilcott  who  was  in  "Tambur- 
laine, the  Great",  and  many 
others,  Miss  Browne  recalled  the 
hectic  rehearsal  of  the  play 
which  had  taken  place  in  the 
room  last  December.  She  paid 
tribute  to  Canadian  actors  and 
to  their  high  standards,  and  par- 
ticularly to  those  in  the  cast. 

Dean  Ian  Macdonald  of  the 
U.C.  residence  introduced  the 
star  and  other  guests,  who  in- 

cluded Dr.  Sidney  Smith  and  the 
past  dean  of  the  residence,  Dr. 
Claude  Bissell.  Commenting  on 
the  choice  of  the  picture  he  said, 
"The  picture  of  Tamburlaine, 
that  warlike  figure,  ia  despot, 
may  be  an  inspiration  to  the  resi- 
dence students  .  .  ." 

Five  fire  engines  came  to  Wy- 1 
cliffe  College  early  Saturday 
morning  to  put  out  a  small  bon- 
fire and  end  a  three-hour  battle 
between  Trinity  and  Wycliffe. 

Three  students  were  stripped 
during  the  fight.  One  Wycliffe 
man  was  sent  running  across 
Hoskin  naked  with  a  large  'T' 
in  black  paint  across  his  back  and 
'57'  below. 

Trinity  rekindled  the  tradition- 
al feud  between  the  two  colleges 
at  about  midnight  Friday  wlfen 
they  decorated  Wycliffe  with  a 
black  T  on  its  front  walk  and 
with  toilet  paper. 

Wycliffe  replied  with  a  painted 
'W  and  more  toilet  paper. 

Shortly  after  2.30  a.m.  three  hose 
trucks  and  a  ladder  truck  were 
called  to  put  out  a  bonfire  at  the 
Wycliffe  front  door.  Wycliffe  stud- 
ents had  set  the  fire  to  burn  off 
the  Thinity  T.  The  mystery  of 
who  sent  the  fire  alarm  in  was 
not  solved.  "This  is  just  the  be- 
ginriing,"  said  a  tired  Trinity 

Deans  Wyatt  Earp  of  Trinity 
and  William  •Prior  of  Wycliffe 
watched  part  of  the  fights.  Dean 
Earp  threatened  calling  police  at 
one  point. 

War  was  declared  Thursday 
when  bewildered  Trinity  stud- 
ents ate  breakfast  with  no  silver. 
Tlie  stolen  silver  was  found  in 
the  Varsity  office.  Wycliffe  was 
strongly  suspected  for  the  prank. 

Most  of  the  Trinity  students  in 
the  first  attack  were  from  Divin- 

ity, one  of  the  attackers  said.  Wy- 
cliffe sent  them  away  drenched 
with  water  from  fire-hoses  and 

Several  Wycliffe  students  in  the 
counter-attack  which  followed 
Trinity's  first  assault  entered 
Trinity  —  to  steal  Trinity's  silver, 
the  student  said.  They  were 
chased  through  the  corridors,  and 
three  were  shoved  under  a  show 
er.  One  was  stripped  and  sent 
back  to  Wycliffe  with  his  back 

"His  clothes  are  still  here,"  a 
Trinity  student  said  Monday.

Engineers  Plaque  Back 

A  week-long  search  ended  early 
Saturday  when  campus  police 
found  the  missing  Engineering 
nameplate.  It  was  removed  from 
the  Engineering  Building  last 
weekend,  shortly  after  Engineer- 
ing Society  President  John  Rum- 
ble was  kidnapped  and  made  an 
honorary  Arts  man. 

Still   missing   are   signs  from 

the  Medical  Building  and  iho 
Helen  Armitage  Nursery  Schiu  1. 

An  attempt  on  Friday  night  to 
remove  plaque  from  the  SAC 
Building  met  with  failure.  M  F 
Morrill,  SA.C.  Accountant  plated 
the  sign  in  safe  "keeping  on  Satur- 
day morning.  His  comment:  "1

highlights  of  the  two  week  cam- 
pus United  Appeal  Campaign

some  hot  jazz  groups  will  appear

C.  R.  Smith  (IV  SPS)  said  "each 
student  who  allows  the  anatomy 
to  be  measured  receives  an  offical 
"re-seat"  to  be  worn  for  the 
duration  of  the  appeal." 

The  French  starlet  is  still  little 
more  than  rumour,  but  the  rum- 
our is  growing  stronger  by  the 
hour.  Miss  Broadhurst  said.  "This 
should  appeal  to  the  sporting 
blood  of  all  the  men  on  the

Love  Letter

Montreal  .  .  .  memorable  be- 
cause you  have  girl  cheerleaders

and  everyone  sings  on  the  t  arn. 

But  more  than  that.  Leaves

the  mountain  tup  and  autumn 
only  lives  in  Montreal.

could  never  be  like  you.  The 
little  man  ot  the  stadium,  for 
balance.  It   >'IJ"  vve'-  Toronto, 


he'd  throw  you  out.  But  you're 
Montreal  and  he  tells  you  where

thinks  it's  a  wonderful  day, 
though  poets  in  Toronto  wouldn't 
know  it.  t 

Oh,  Toronto,  you  wouldn't 
know  how  to  live  like  that. 

You  wouldn't  know  that  foot- 
ball games  are  more  than  yells 
—  that  they're  being  young. 

And  the  high  priesthood  of 
learning  .  .  .  that's  McClll. 

Where  knowledge  isn't  sitting 
in  a  grubby  room,  book  on  your 
knee,  and  trying  to  remember. 
It's  living,  and  in  living  well, 

That's  why  this  is  a  love  letter. 

Because  you  are  Montreal  and 
you  know  that  being  young  is 
more  important  than  being  too 
sincere.  That  being  -young  and 
very  much  alive  is  more  im- 
portant Mian  growing  up. 

Because  you  know  more  than 
we  do.  And  when  Toronto  be- 
comes as  fine  as  you,  there  will 
be  no  need  tor  love  letters.

THE  VARSITY,  Monday,  October  15th,  1956 

why  be  a  bore? 

Charter  Day  at  Victoria  College  last  Thursday  was 
not  a  bore,  a  reader  assures  us.  It  was  'genuinely 
funny',  she  says. 

If  so,  Victoria  has  overcome  the  lacklustre,  unim- 
aginative pattern  of  almost  every  graduation  of  prize- 
giving  at  the  University  of  Toronto  since  the  time  of 

Our  picture  of  the  Vic  ceremony  is  this:  seventy- 
five  sets  of  parents,  plus  a  few  'friends  of  the  Univer- 
siy',  watched  bright-eyed  while  Johnny  or  Mary  got 
his  award,  then  sat  back  in  torpor  while  seventy-four 
other  Johnnys  and  Mary  were  processed. 

The  trimmings  on  an  occasion  like  this  can  be  in- 
teresting. The  great  man  may  be  really  great.  The 
audience  may  hear  a  good  speech. 

But  the  reason  for  the  occasion-giving  seventy- 
five  or  seven  thousand  Johns  and  Marys  their  awards 
—is  not. 

They  know-better  than  their  ,parents-that  the 
whole  thing  is  usually  a  mechanistic  farce  and  a  bore. 
They  leave  town  or  are  'engaged.' 

Their  thrill  was  the  telegram,  phone-call  or  letter 
saying  'You've  passed'  or  'You've  won  the  Phineas 
Phrink  award.' 

If  public  recognition  of  this  fact  is  desired,  more 
could  be  had  by  a  printed  list  of  who  won  what. 
Proud  parent  only  remembers  Johnny  or  Mary  and 
a  blur  of  other  faces  crossing  the  stage. 

Parents  know  what  and  how  well  their  children 
have  done.  So  do  their  children.  The  University  knows 
it.  Anyone  interested  can  find  out.

I  was  dismayed  when  I  read 
the  front  page  artiqle  in  to-days 
paper  on  Victoria  University's 
Charter  Day.  Not  only  was  it  in 
very  poor  taste,  it  was  untrue.  As

consecutive  Charter  Day  Convo- 
cations I  should  like  to  say  that 
I  found  nothing  dull  and  boring 
about  them.  The  official  speeches 
display  a  high  degree  of  wit,- and 
Professor  Hare's  verses  are  truly 
funny.  The  laughter  which  accom- 
panies these,  occasions  is  not  the 
polite  titter  ,  of  an  effete  social 
gathering  but  rather  the  honest 
heart-warming  laugh  of  friends 
sharing  a  good  joke.  In  these  days 
of  stodgy  official  gathering  it  is 

pity  that  your  reporter  has 
directed  puerile  criticism  at  one 
of  the  functions,  which  though 
formal,  still  retains  an  air  of 
friendliness  and  good  fellowship. 
I  cannot  protest  strongly  enough 
at  such  unfair  and  inaccurate  re-

^t^thp""1'  P-Q-  <01tfflbtr  13>  "  Playing  8reat  defensive  football,  and  coming  through 
with  the  scoring  punch  when  it  counted  most,  Varsity  Blues  took  a  {.Lit- 1  = is  ,u 
from  McGill  Redmen  here  this  afternoon.  The  -  -         .  *     -?  t,ght  15"13  decision

Carr  and  his  potent  mates  almost  to  a  standstill  at  times,  it  was  the  defensive  team  ?w 
scored  what  proved  to  be  the  game-winning  points  midway  through  the  tWrd  perio™. 
Tattle  Scores 
It   was   young    Johnny  Tattle 

that  intercepted  a  Carr-to-Yuska 

pass  and  raced  35  yards  for  the 

iinal  Varsity  touchdown  that  sent 

them     ahead      15-13.  Tattle 

shook  off  three  potential  tacklers 

en  route  to  the  goal-line  in  a 

jaunt  that   brought  better  than 

1,000   Varsity   students   to  their 

feet.  The  remainder  of  the  11,500 

population    of    Percival  Molson 

Memorial  Stadium  had  little  to 

cheer  about  from  that  point  until 

the  final  whistle. 
A  last,  desperate,  McGill  drive 

came  to  an  abrupt  halt  with  the 

final  seconds  ticking  off  when 

end   Tom   Gallagher   dropped  ^ 

third-down  pass  from  punter  Jan 

Sandzelius  and   the   Blues  took 

over  from  there  to  run  the  clock 


Take  Lead 
But  one  can't  take  anything 
away  from  Larry  Joynt,  who  play- 
ed the  entire  game  at  quarter- 
back, and  his  attackers.  They 
marched  71  yards  in  nine  plays 
to  even  the  score  in  the  second 
quarter.  Tim  Reid  capped  the 
march,  skirting  the  left  end  for 
five  yards  and  the  major.  Rich 
Eethune's  convert  sent  the  Blues 

Varsity  picked  up  248  yards  on 
■the  ground  and  67  in  the  air.  Mix- 
ing his  plays  well,  and  getting 
some  fine  running  from  Reid  and 
Al  Wong,  Joynt  himself  carried 
for  44  yards. 

Open  Scoring 

The  Redmen  took  the  lead  in 
the  opening  canto  after  Captain 
Vaughn  McVey  broke  through  to 
block  a  kick  by  Ross  Woods.  Mc- 
Gill took  over  on  the  Blues'  31, 
and  hit  pay  dirt  five  plays  later. 
Ricky  AdriafTcarried  across  from 
the  five. 

McGill  missed  a  great  chance 
to  step  right  back  into  the  lead. 
They  travelled  B0  yards  after  the 
kickoff  but  lost  their  opportunity 
at  the  Varsity  goal-line  when 
Jerry  Anderson  fumbled  and 
Curt  Russell  fell  on  the  loose 
pigskin  to  hold  the  Redmen  to  a 
single  point. 

Lead  At  Half 

Woods  kicked  a  long  single  on 
the  last  play  of  the  first  half  to 
give  Varsity  an  8-7  lead.  The 
Redmen  battled  back  to  gain  a 
13-8  edge  in  the  third  quarter 
when  Normie  Williams  lost  con- 
trol of  the  ball  on  a  punt  run- 
back  and  McGill  tackier  Johnny 
Larsen  grabbed  the  ball  on  the 
Blues'  25.  He  carried  it  to  the 
10  and  then  handed  it  to  Gal- 
lagher, who  half-ran,  half-crawl- 
ed over  for  the  score.  The  Snap 
was  high  on  the  convert  attempt.

The  University  of  Toronto 
Baby  Blues  rolled  to  an  impres- 
sive 29-7  victory  over  Ryerson 
Rams  at  Varsity  Stadium  Fri- 
day. Displaying  a  strong  running 
attack  as  well  as  being  a  con- 
stant threat  in  the  air,  the  Inter- 
mediates completely  outclassed 
the  opposition. 

The  Junior  Blues  showed  they 
meant  business  right  from  the 
opening  kickoff.  After  only  four 
minutes  of  play,  Brian  Aston 
crashed  over  to  score  the  Inter- 
meds  first  touchdown  of  the 
game.  The  score  was  set  up  by 
a  15  yard  rush  by  Aston,  from 
the  Ryerson  42-yard  line.  Then 
John  Spence  carried  for  s,ix.  A 
Lome  Forstner  pass  to  Jim  Cas- 
ky  brought  the  ball  to  the  4  yard 
line.  Aston  converted  his  own  TD, 

Shortly  after,  Dalt  Coleman 
grabbed  a  Ryerson  kick  and  car- 
ried 17  yards  to  the  Ryerson  13. 
Don  Bortheick  took  the  ball  to 
the  10.  On  the  next  play  quarter- 
back Lome  Forstner  passed  to 
Al  Connelly  who  streaked  over 
for  his  first  score.  Aston  kicked 
the  convert  again. 

Varsity  almost  scored  in  the 
second  quarter  when  captain  Bob 
Lee  recovered  a  Ryerson  fumble 
on  the  Rams  20.  Varsity  worked 
the  ball  down  to  the  one  yard 
line  but  lost  it  on  downs. 

Ryerson's  lone -touchdown  came 
in  the  second  period.  Defensive 
halfback  Len  Lambert  fell  on  a 
Toronto  fumble  on  the  Baby 
Blues  19.  A  15  yard  pass  from 
fullback  Bill  McMonagle  to  Hal 
Short  brought  play  to  the  four. 
Lingley  took  it  over  for  the 
score  and  Hal  Short  converted. 
Just  before  half-time  a  clever 
72-yard  touchdown  run  by  Var- 
sity's Bob  Hart  was  called  back 
for  clipping.  Toronto , was  ahead 
14-7  at  the  half.  But  Ryerson 
was  still  in  the  play. 

Junior  Blues  fired  up  at  the 
start  of  the  second  half.  In  two 
plays  they  moved  the  ball  35 
yards.  Then  three  plunges  by 
Ian  Knowles  carried  the  play  to 
the  Ryerson  two.  Hart  carried 
the  ball  over  but  was  hit  by  his 
bad-luck  jinx,  again  as  his  second 
touchdown  was  called  back  for 
holding  on  the  line.  On  the  next 
play  Varsity  scored  with  a 
screen  pass  to  Johri  Spence  who 

ran  with  it  from  the  15.  Aston'* 
convert  was  blocked. 

In  the  third  period  the  Varsity 
defense  put  up  a  tremendous 
stand.  Jim  Seegmillar,  Pete  Eby 
and  DonComish  combined  to 
rush  the  passer  as  well  as  throw 
the  Ryerson  backs  for  substantial 
losses.  Baby  Blues  added  two 
points  to  their  score  when  Don 
Cornish  broke  through  and 
tackled  Ryerson  quarterback 
Dave  Lingley  into  the  end  zone. 

In  the  last  quarter  Toronto 
stuck  to  the  ground.  Fullba-  k 
Al  Connelly  showed  well,  making* 
some  good  punt  returns  and  run- 
ning his  second  TD  late  in  thn 
quarter.  Aston  converted.  Final 
score  was  29-7  for  Varsity. 

Dave  Lingley  at  quarterbark 
was  Ryerson's  best  performer. 
He  was  particularly  good  on  thn 
pass-run  option  and  his  passing 
was  accurate.  -Half-back  Hal 
Short  was  the  only  consistent 
ground-gainer  on  the  Ryerson 
squad.  Sam  Waldman  held  tho 
defensive  squad  together.  On 
occasion  he  broke  through  m 
throw  Varsity  backs  for'losse

THE  VARSITY,  Monday,  October  15th,  1956  


Along  with  t  he  thousand-odd 
Jootball  enthusiasts,  three  Toron- 
to representatives  arrived  home 
from  Montreal  this  weekend, 
after  a  "tremendously  encourag- 
ing' conference  of  the  National 
Federation  of  Canadian  Univer- 
sity Students  last  week. 

"Almost  all  our  program  was 
accepted,'  said  Gordon  Forstner, 
President  of  the  Students'  Ad- 
ministrative Council,  and  part  of 
the  Toronto  delegation.  "One  of 
the  most  encouraging  things  was 
that  the  conference  faced  the 
problem  of  the  large  university." 

Membership  in  N.F.C.U.S.  has 
dropped  sharply  in  the  last  year, 
mainly  because  of  the  withdrawal 
of  several  of  Canada's  largest 
universities,  including  Toronto. 
U.B.C.  and  McGill.  The  complaint 
of  these  universities  was  that 
too  few  benefitted  from  the  ex-

"The  larger  schools  were  drop-

they  had  too  little  voice  in  the 

Forstner  felt  that  these  dis- 
advantages had  been  partly 
overcome  by  the  adoption  of 
proportionate  voting,  (Toronto, 
for  example,  would  have  five 
votes,  as  compared  to  one  vote 
for  a  college  of  750). 

The  conference  also  adopted  a 
"sliding  scale  of  fees,'  also  pro- 
portionate, which  will  effect  a 
reduction  in  the  total  amount 
of  fees  levied  on  colleges  of  over 
1,500  students. 

Under  this  system,  N.F.C.U.S. 
fees  for  Toronto  would  be  re- 
duced to  roughly  53,200.— more 
than  $1,500  less  than  last  year. 

"This  represents  a  really  posi- 
tive approach  to  the  problem  of 
the  big  school,'  Forstner  said. 
"From  our  standpoint,,  it  makes 
the  case  for  N.F.C.U.S.  rather 

"The  whole  spirit  of  the  con-

one  of  definite  compromise.' 

One  of  the  accomplishments 
which  Forstner  stressed  was 
simplification.  "We  were  trying," 
he  said,  "for  a  stranger  federa-

made  to  remove  local  affairs 
from  the  control  of  the  national 
central  office,  which  resulted  in 
considerable  cut  in  the  budget. 

As  a  part  of  this  policy1,  the 
mandates  for  the  various  N.F.- 
C.U.S. contests  became  the  fi- 
nancial responsibility  of  the  uni- 
versities which  accepted  them. 
Previously,  the  art,  photography, 
and  short  story  contests  had  been 
paid  for  by  the  national  com-

"One  failure,"  Forstner  ad- 
mitted, -"was  that  of  the  part- 
time  president.  It  was  the  feeling 
of  the  smaller  colleges  that  a 
full-time  head  is  a  necessity." 

Part  of  the  budget  was  set 
aside  to  improve  the  regional  set- 
up of  N.F.C.U.S.  "For  the  first 
time,"  Forstner  said,  "the  com-

Can't  Park  After  Dark 

Having  trouble  parking  by 
day?  Try  it  at  night! 

Extension  students,  staff  and 
Hart  House  Theatre  goers  are 
jamming  the  campus  parking 
grounds  between  7:00  and  7:30 
p.m.,  Mr.  A.  Russell,  assistant 
superintendent    said,  yesterday. 

Quite  a  number  of  the  stu- 
dents who  park  on  the  campus 
by  day  have  been  given  warning 
tickets  which  request  them  to 
have  an  interview  with  the  uni- 
versity police  chief.  However, 
no  students  have  been  excluded 
from  campus  parking. 

Eut  the  day  problem  doesn't 
begin  to  compare  with  the  night 
problem  of  parking.  Last  year 
there  were  more  than  16,000 
adult  students  attending  Univer- 

sity Extension  Courses.  A  great 
many  of  these  night  students 
own  cars.  Add  to  these  cars  those 
of  the  night  staff,  and  those 
driven  down  by  Hart  House 
theatre-goers,  plus  Day  Student 
Society  members  who  drive  down 
for  meetings. 

The  U  of  T  police  do  their  best 
to  cope  with  this  situation  by 
stationing  guards  at  the  campus 
entrances.  When  all  areas  are 
filled  to  capacity,  the  guards 
then  refuse  entrance  to  other 
cars  and  they  are  forced  to  find 
a  parking  space  elsewhere.  So 
be  kind  to  the  U  of  T  Police. 
If  you  plan  to  come  down  to 
the  campus  at  night,  travel  by 
subway,  or  cheaper  still,  hitch- 

Michelle  Boudet,  64  inches  of 
Gallic  beauty,  will  visit  the  Uni- 
versity of  Toronto  Saturday  to 
spark  the  campus  drive  for  United 

A  date  with  Michelle — all  ex- 
penses paid — will  be  the  prize  for 
some  undergraduate  whose  name 
she  will  pick  from  a  hat  at  Satur- 
day's football  game. 

Tickets  for  the  raffle  go  on  sale 
today.  For  25  cents,  they  can  be 
picked  up  in  Hart  House,  the  SAC 
office,  and  in  most  student  gather- 
ing places. 

Miss  Boudet  is  a  20-year-old 
French  film  starlet.  Blue  and 
white  chairman  Brian  Anderson 
and  Student  service  commissioner 

Carole  Broadhurst  arranged  her 
visit  to  Toronto. 

She  will  be  flown  from  Mont- 
real by  TCA — where  she  has  been 
visiting  friends — Saturday  at  12  o'- 
clock. A  committee  from  the  Blue 
and  White  Society  will  meet  her  at 
Malton  Airport  and  whisk  her  off 
to  a  specially  arranged  luncheon. 

Michelle  is  on  her  way  to  Holly- 
wood where  she  is  under  contract 
to  Universal-International  pictures. 

The  student  winning  Saturday's 
raffle  wil  escort  her  to  dinner  and 
to  the  Blue  and  White  dance  in 
Hart  House. 

Miss  Boudet  will  draw  the  ticket 
for  her  own  date  between  halves 
of  the  football  game. 

Curt  Reis's  Rainbow 
Needs  Cast  of  600 

Michelle  won  laurels  tiiis  sum- 
mer as  a  supporting  actr<  ffi  in  the 
Cannes  film  festival.  She  has  been 
on  the  legitimate  stage  sir  i*e  leav- 
ing school  at  16. 

She  never  travels  will-out  her 
pet  poodle,  and  will  brin;-  il  with 
her  for  her  Toronto  visit. 

Michelle  has  been  staying  with 
friends  in  Montreal  befoie  going 
to  Hollywood.  The  U-I  studio  hjs 
made  no  definite  plans  for  her  car- 
eer yet  but  she  expects  to  start 
work  right  away,  she  said. 

"Everyone  has  really  been  co- 
operating to  help  bring  her  tu  Tor- 
onto," Brian  Anderson  said  last 
night.  Her  studio  is  rushing  pub- 
licity pictures  to  The  Varsity. 

Tickets  will  be  available  this 
morning,  the  Blue  and  White 
chairman  said. 

"I  want  600  people  to  try  out 
for  a  cast  of  52,"  All- Varsity  Re- 
vue director  Curt  Reis  said  yes- 
terday. "We  begin  casting  next 
week  and  wc  need  both  Negro 
and  white  artists," 

Dancers,  signers,  actors,  chorus- 
types  —  all  are  in  great  demand. 

"tinian's  Rainbow"  is  the  first 
AVR  in  four  years.  The  Negro 
artists  wil  be  used  in  the  chorus 
and  as  singles. 

The  February  production  will 
be  the  first  amateur  production  of 
"Finian's  Rainbow"  in  Canada. 

Also  needed  for  the  show  is  a 

25-piece  orchestra  of  strings, 
piano,  percussion,  brass,  flute  and 
oboe.  No  musician  has  been  hired 

Milton  Barnes,  orchestrator  of 
Curt  Reis'  production  of  Purific 
ation  last  year,  will  be  musical 
director  of  the  show. 

Reis  is  anxious  to  have  as  many 
people  as  possible  try  out.  "Only 
l^v  getting  hundreds  of  applicants 
can  we  do  the  show  properly," 
he  said. 

AVR  offices  are  in  the  balcony 
of  the  Junior  Common  Room  of 
University  College.

Canadian  campuses  last  week

were  scrapped  at  the  annual

The  Post,  which  is  published 
in  Montreal,  is  a  commercial 
venture,  designed  to  hit  all 
Canadian,  students.  It  will)  be 
distributed  free  to  their  homes. 

The  first  issue — sixteen  tab-

on  Toronto.  Written  by  David 
Stein,  a  first-year  U.C.  student. 
It  is  a  profile  of  Anthony  Gray, 
young  Shakespearean  actor. 

Largest  single  feature  in  the 
new  paper  is  a  two  -  page

According  to  advance  pub-

2      THE  VARSITY,  Tuesday,  October  16th,  1956 

To  make  sure  the  milk  you  drink  is  pure,  many  Canadian 
farmers  and  dairymen  now  use  milk-handling  and  proces- 
sing equipment  made  from  stainless  steel  containing 

about  8%  nickel.  The  Inco  nickel  used  to  make  stainless 
steel  in  Canada  is  mined,  milled,  smelted  and  refined  here, 
and  stays  in  Canada  to  help  provide  jobs  for  Canadians. 

This  is  how  stainless  steel 
made  in  Canada  with  Inco  Nickel 
helps  bring  you  pure  milk 

cmcf  mates  jobs  for  Canadians  » 

From  milking  time  to  bottling  time,  milk  produced 
by  the  most  modern  farms  and  dairies  seldom  touches 
anything  but  nickel-containing  stainless  steel. 

This  stainless  steel  has  a  hard,  corrosiorirresistant 
surface  that  is  easy  to  clean.  When  used  in  farm 
and  dairy  equipment,  it  helps  keep  milk  pure. 

All  the  stainless  steel  produced  in  Canada  for  this 
equipment  is  made  with  Inco  nickel.  Here's  how 
this  Inco  nickel  helps  provide  jobs  for  Canadians: 

1.  Nickel-bearing  ores  are  mined,  milled  and 

smelted  by  Inco  near  Sudbury,  Ontario.  Final 
refining  is  done  at  Inco's  plant  in  Port  Col- 
borne,  Ontario. 

2.  Inco  nickel  is  used  in  Canada  for  the  manu- 
facture of  stainless  steel. 

3.  This  stainless  steel  is  used  by  Canadian  manu- 
facturers™ the  production  of  milking  machines, 
coolers  and  other  equipment  for  handling  and 
processing  milk. 

These  steps  in  the  manufacture  of  this  equipment— 
from  the  ore  to  the  finished  product— require 
thousands  of  workmen.  In  this  way,  Inco  nickel 
stays  in  Canada  to  help  provide  jobs  for  Canadians.

The  Daily  Princetonian,  required  reading  at  one  of  the  more 
pretentious  of  the  Ivy  League  colleges,  has  announced  that  '■Hate 
Yale!"  is  definitely  out  as  a  football  cheer. 

"Last  November,"  went  the  Princetonian's  story,  "the  cheer- 
leaders upset  alumni  and  administrators  from  both  schools  by 
leading  undergraduates  in  a  continuous  'Hate  Yale'  chant,  which 
grew  in  volume  with  each  chorus  and  was  climaxed  by  the  launch- 
ing of  a  number  of  balloons." 

The  Princeton  cheerleader  who  led  last  year's  malevolent  little 
hymn  made  clear  this  week  the  obsolesence  of  Hate  as  a  way  of 
life.  "We're  trying  to  think  up  some  constructive  little  chants,"  he 
wrote  in  a  letter  to  the  Presidents  of  both  colleges.

The  -Engineers-versus-all-comers  brand  of  school  spirit  was 
scathingly  attacked  last  week  by  Pep  Club  president  Mike  Jeffery 
at  the  University  of  British  Columbia. 

"The  engineers  claim  they  have  more  spirit  than  any  other 
single  group  on  the  campus,"  he  said,  and  they  point  with  pride 
to  the  success  of  Frosh  hazing,  general  meetings  and  blood  drives. 

"By  rioting,  superior  numbers  and  mob  organization,  they 
make  these  the  most  awaited  events  on  our  campus."  ^

"North  American  way  of  life  is  sadly  lacking  in  culture,"  said 
Ian  G.  Dorward,  this  year's  St.  Andrews  Exchange  student  at

arts  and  even  fewer  discussion  groups,"  said  the  third  year  honours

"The  harder  you  hit  it,  the  fur- 
i  ther  it  goes  in.'' 

Bishop  Jacob  de  Mel  was  dis- 
cussing the  condition  of  the  church 
in  India.  He  said  Hinduism  would 
not  absorb  the  Christian  church. 

"In  the  eight  years  since  inde- 
pendence, there  have  been  no 
great  landslides  from  Christian- 

The  Bishop  is  on  a  two-month 
speaking  tour  of  Canada  and  the 
United  States.  He  quoted  Mahat- 
ma  Ghandi's  advice:  missionaries 
must  be  "more  like,  Christ,  and 
not  soften  the  difficult  demands 
of  Christianity." 

Bishop  de  Mel  was  born  in  Cey- 
lon and  educated  there  and  at' 
Oxford.  He  took  orders  in  Lon- 
don, being  consecrated  Bishop  in 

in  1945.  He  was  a  delegate  to  the 
World  Council  of  Churches  last 

Tlie  Bishop  spoke  of  the  "won- 
derful heroism"  of  Christians  dur- 
ing the  war,  and  of  the  work  be 
ing  done  for  lepers,  the  deaf  ^ind 
the  blind.  He  said  Hindus  had 
not  interfered  with  this  work. 

"We  trust  our  governments",  he 
said,  "and  on  the  whole  they  have 
been  reasonably  tolerant."

Etiquette  Test 


It  seems  that  just  about  every 
magazine  or  newspaper  these 
days  carries  a  section  devoted 
to  a  quiz  of  one  type  or  an- 
other. It  may  be  on  anything 
from  baseball  to  gardening,  but 
there  it  is,  nonetheless.  Just  to 
keep  in  the  swing  of  things,  we 
have  decided  to  publish  a  little 
quiz  on  the  subject  of  campus 

You  have  doubtless  noticed 
how  some  people,  with  a  fine 
sense  of  the  appropriate  action 
or  remark,  can  avoid  or  smooth 
over  potentially  awkward  or 
embarrassing  situations.  The 
purpose  of  this  quiz  is  to  see 
how  you  would  rate  in  such  situ- 
ations which  occur  from  day  to 
day  around  the  campus.  Ready? 
Here  are  the  situations. 

1.  You  have  completely  for- 
gotten to  write  an  English  es- 
say, and  one  week  after  the 
essay  is  due,  the  professor  asks 
you  for  the  essay.  You  should: 

(a}  Pretend  you  haven't  got 
your  hearing  aid. 

lb)  Tell  him  you  thought  the 
subject  choices  too  mundane 
even  to  be  considered. 

tc)  Promptly  hand  him  yes- 
terday's calculus  notes. 

2.  You  have  somehow  managed 
to  score  a  goal  against  your  own 
team  in  a  hockey  match  upon 

which  the  league  championship 
depends.  You  should  say: 

la)  "Guess  I  got  a  little  con- 

lb)  "It  seemed  to  be  the  onl> 
place  to  put  it." 

ic)  "Guess  I'll  be  moving' 
along  now  fellas." 

(d)  "Boy!  Have  we  got  a  lousy 

3.  The  scene  is  a  Blue  and 
White  dance.  You,  a  fairly  hefty 
chap,  have  been  dancing  101 
some  time  and  you  becnme  aware 
that  you  have  been  dancing  al- 
most continuously  on  your  part- 
ner's toes.  You  shouln  say: 

la)  "I  guess  I  am  a  little

tc)  "Pretty  heavy,  aren't  1?" 

4.  Again  the  scene  is  4  Bluf

and  flowerlike  girl  art  aware 
that  your  partner,  the  clod,  has 
been  dancing  almost  continuous*

(a)  "Pretty  heavy,  aren't]

another  school 

The  Varsity  does  not  answer  all  the  obligations  of 
a  university  paper.  It  can't. 

Universities  (particularly  the  University  of  Toron- 
to) lead  in  research  for  almost  every  major  profession 
in  the  wqrld.  The  Faculty  of  Medicine  spends  a  large 
percentage  of  its  time  and  money  on  medical  re- 
search. The  School  of  Practical  Science  is  constantly 
investigating  new  engineering  techniques.  Similarly, 
every  profession  that  depends  on  the  university  for 
the  training  of  personnel,  also  depends  on  it  to  lead 
the  way  in  study  and  thought. 

But  journalism,  as  a  profession,  can  not. 

Present-day  methods  of  news  distribution  are  in 
for  several  basic  changes  during  the  lifetime  of  this 
generation.  The  journalist's  job  will  grow  more  im- 

The  growth  of  radio  and  television  news  cover- 
age, and  the  advances  in  the  agency  system  that 
serves  the  day's  news  acros  the  continent,  are  leading 
us  toward  a  new  era  in  the  newspaper  business.  Not 
long  from  now,  teletype  service  to  the  living  room 
will  supplant  the  home-delivered  newspaper. 

Only  one  function  will  be  left— interpretation.  The 
newspaper  must  become  more  commentary,  and 
more  analytic. 

And  it  will  be  the  responsibility  of  the  university 
to  train  the  writers  for  this  new  press. 

That's  where  The  Varsity  falls  down.  Because  of 
its  limited  budget  and  lack  of  professional  leadership, 
this  tiny  paper  must  struggle  even  to  act  as  a  glorified 
campus  bulletin  board.  (If  you'll  pardon  the  expres- 

Journalism  schools  in  technical  institutes  are  not 
the  answer.  They  train  technicians. 

This  university  should  investigate  setting  up  a 
graduate  school  of  journalism  to  train  the  men  who 
will  be  needed  to  lead  the  press  of  tomorrow  —  a 
school  where  those  men  can  work  together  to  guide 
the  growth  of  the  new  press  along  lines  that  will 
properly  serve  this  country. 

nfcus  again 

We  didn't  think  we  would  ever  write  this,  but 
NFCUS  has  done  a  good  job. 

With  a  minimum  of  argument,  and  apparently 
with  good  feeling  all  around,  last  week's  national 
conference  adopted  several  sweeping,  but  effective, 

Proportional  voting  was  introduced,  and  propor- 
tional payment  of  fees.  Several  secondary  activities 
were  dropped  from  the  federation's  program  or  dele- 
gated to  universities  where  they  can  be  carried  out 
more  easily. 

We  understand  the  Toronto  delegates  were  large- 
ly responsible  for  the  legislation  that  implemented 
the  reforms.  Certainly,  Gord  Forstner,  Gerry  Helleiner 
and  Flo  AAiddleton,  all  of  our  frequently-maligned 
SAC,  spent  a  great  deal  of  time  before  the  conference 
drawing  up  their  program. 

Because  of  the  common  sense  exhibited  there, 
last  week's  conference  has  left  the  students  of  Can- 
ada—well, most  of  them— with  a  stronger  and  more 
sensible  national  federation. 

We  hope  it  is  an  indication  of  future  thought  in 

And  we  hope  this  is  the  last  editorial  we  will  have 
to  write  about  it.

I  ask? 

Themis  PaPaioannou. 

Wait!  Don't  skip  this  letter 
because  you're  not  in,  or  not 
intending  to  be  in  Finians  Rain- 
bow (the  current  replacement 
for  an  A.V.R:)  If  you  are,  or 
ever  have  been  a  Revue-er,  i.e. 
a  comedian,  ukelele  plucker, 
face,  puller  or  toe  tapper,  this 
letter  is  to  you — to  you,  the 
rightful  potentials  for  an  All 
Varsity  Revue.  This  letter. is  to 
^sympathize  with,  and  (we  hope) 
goad  into  action  those  talented 
souls  who  were  once  bursting: 
with  original  ideas  which  they 
were  hopefully  keeping  alive  in 
order  to  incorporate  into  a 
campus  show,  but  who,  after 
waiting-  four  years,  are  finding 
their  energies  being  stifled  and 
almost  mocked  at  by  the  "su- 
perior, well  -  organized"  and 
appallingly  narrow  book  shows, 
which  are  being  promoted  in- 

This  letter  also  goes  to  the 
Student  Organization  which  has 
decreed  that  these  book  shows 
be  produced.  The  S.A.C.  is  ap- 
parently unaware  that  in  mak- 
ing such  decisions  they  are 
greatly  contributing  to  that 
student  apathy  which  they  so 
constantly  bemoan,  by  squelch- 
ing one  of  the  happiest  mediums 
of  student  enthusiasm. 

Now  all  this  talk  may  sound 
ill-founded  to  the  many  who 
remember  Brigadoon,  Kiss  Me 
Kate  and  other  wonderful  book 
shows  which  were  so  commend- 
ably  performed  by  Varsity  tal- 
ents. There,  we  certainly  had 
a  fine  display  of  campus  en- 
thusiasm, and  I  would  be  the 
last  to  deny  it.  But  these  re- 
creations of  productions  which 
have  been  staged,  filmed  and 
recorded  by  some  of  the  bright- 
est talent  the  North  American 
theatre  has  discovered,  have 
little  connection  with  the  stag- 
ing of  a  campus  show. 

After  all,  what  is  a  Varsity 
Revue?  In  this  writer's  con- 
ception, it  ts  a  series  of  skits, 
songs  and  dances,  held  together 
(admittedly  sometimes  very 
loosely)  by  an  underlying 
theme,  and  bound  up  in  an  un- 
mistakeable  air  of  familiar 
local  humour.  It  is,  or  should 
be  a  melting-pot  for  all  the 
varied  scopes  of  talent  which 
an  organization  the  size  of  the 
University'  inevitably  must  pos- 
sess. A  book  show,  by  the  very 
limitations  of  its  story  and 
script  cannot  possibly  open  its 
stage  to  these  areas.  Nor  does 
it  offer  the  same  enticement  to 

an  amateur  performer.  ,$je 
might  feel  at  ease  with  ft 
"home  -  grown  effort/'  byj 
slightly  overwhelmed  by  the 
professional  polish  that  even  an 
amateur  production  of  a  Broad, 
way  show  seems  to  demand. 

My  theory  is  not  radical,  ^p.' 
parently  there  are  Faculties  0j] 
campus  that  still  feel  the  same 
way.  Medicine,  Engineering  an<j 
Dentistry,  with  smash  successes 
every  year,  adhere  to  the  old 
format  of  school  productions 
But  Arts,  "the  most  creative 
literate  and  free  lancing  group 
of  all"  for  some  reason  hag 
dropped  from  the  ranks.  Or  per. 
haps  we  consider  that  we  have 
elevated  our  position  by  leaving 
the  inexpert,  disorganized  and 
perhaps  even  slightly  corny 
levels  of  a  Revue.  But  original,, 
ty  and  free  expression  'are  hard 
to  come  by  in  this  day  and  age. 
A  Revue  is  one  vehicle  which 
harbours  these  qualities  with 
natural  ease. 

We  have  several  organiza- 
tions on  campus  that  are  mak- 
ing their  contributions  to  con- 
ventional theatre-going.  Let 
them  do  Finian's  Rainbow,  if 
this  University  is  willing 
undertake  a  cross-campus  -pro- 
duction, then  let  it  be  unique 
and  representative.  The  talent 
is  here,  the  same  as  it  was  five 
years  ago  and  ten  years  ago. 
Only  the  proper  medium 
missing  to  bring  it  to  light.

THE  VARSITY.Tuesday,  October  16th,  1956  5 


Hearst  Rolls  By 

Citizen  Kane",  which  has  at 
long  last  arrived  at  the  Inter- 
national, is  undoubtedly  Orson 
Welles'  masterpiece.  Neverthe- 
less, like  all  of  Welles*  films,  it 
is  a  strange  beast. 

It  is  based  on  the  life  of  news- 
paper magnate  Randolph  Hearst 
and,  since  Hearst  did  not  like 
the  portrait  painted  of  him,  he 
took  appropriate  steps  to  ensure 
that  it  was  not  widely  circulat- 
ed. As  a  result,  it  has  been 
gathering  dust  in  a  Hollywood 
vault  for  almost  fifteen  years. 

LikeHearst.  Kane  (Orson  Wel- 
les) is  a  publisher.  He  has  been 
separated  from  his  mother  at  an 
early  age.  but  has  inherited  a 
fortune.  He  uses  this  to  turn  a 
staid,  failing  newspaper  into  a 
flaming,  sensational  rag.  He  un- 
successful runs  for  governor,  is 
married  twice,  builds  a  fantastic 
Casa  Loma-like  castle  called 
Xanadu  for  his  second  wife, 
divorces  her  and  dies. 

All  this  is  the  familiar  riches- 
to-corruption  variety  of  plot. 
However,  it  is  told  during  the 
first  ten  minutes  of  the  film  in 
a  strange  pseudo  newsreel.  The 
rest  of  the  film  consists  of  the 
'etellmg  of  the  story  through 
'he  eyes  of  his  sycophantic  gen- 
eral manager  (Everett  Sloane). 
;he  man  who  was  once  his  best 
'•"lend  (Joseph  Cotten),  his  rich 
guardian  and  his  pathetic  second 

What  comes  out  of  all  this  is 
a  ''"ileal  study  of  a  megalo- 
maniac. The  ■  only  comparable

who  had  almost  the  first  op- 
portunity in  their  lives  to 
develop  their  own  ideas.  Amid 
all  this  and  the  fine  perform- 
ances of  the  actors  it  is  difficult 
to  see  what  Welles'  own  contri- 
bution was. 


Robert  McFerrin 

Robert  McFerrin,  the  first 
negro  to  win  a  leading  contract 
at  the  Metropolitan  Opera, 
opened  the  Eaton  Auditorium 
series  last  Thursday  evening. 
Baritone  McFerrin  literally 
made  the  walls  of  the  Auditor- 
ium hum  with  the  vibrations 
from  his  lieder  solos.  Of  small 
build,  Mr.  McFerrin  has  a 
powerful  range,  and,  contrary 
to  most  operatic  singers  who 
take  to  an  evening  of  recital, 
is  entirely  at  ease  with  Bach, 
Schubert  and  Ravel. 

Although  McFerrin  did  sing 
one  operatic  aria,  "Cortigiani, 
vil  razza  dannata,"  from  Ri- 
goletto,  this  was  not  his  most 
spectacular  rendition.  I  have 
rarely  been  at  a  concert  in 
which  the  classical  numbers 
were  presented  so  smoothly. 
When  McFerrin  did  reach  the 
inevitable  American  folk  songs 
and  spirituals,  one  could  only 
wish  he  had  lingered  longer 
over  the  early  part  of  the  pro- 
gram. They  made  up  parts  TV 
and  V  of  the  program;  one 
•section  seems  more  than  enough 
for  this  kind  of  song  when  a 
baritone  skilled  in  singing 
classical  music  is  at  hand. 

The  stage  of  the  Women's  Un 
ion  Theatre  is  unfit  for  even  the 
most  unambitious  play.  The  au- 
ditorium is  unfit  for  even  the 
most  unsympathetic  audience. 
Yet  Jack  Sherriff  and  his.  small 
but  zealous  Players*  Guild  Com- 
pany made  light  of  both  difficul- 
ties, and  opened  the  University 
College  Theatre  season  last  week 
with  a  very  successful  two  night 
stand  of  "Rope",  a  one-act  play 
by  Eugene  O'Neill, 

Though  essentially  a  'gimmick' 
play,  shallow  in  its  plot,  "Rope" 
was  used  by  Sherriff  and  Com- 
vsny  to  establish  a  mood  of  in- 
tense reality  and  drama.  Less 
than  a  dozen  people  worked  to- 
gether for  slightly  under  a 
month  with  a  budget  that  could 
not  feed  a  budgie  and  still  achie- 
ved a  polish  very  nearly  profes- 
sion aJ. 

Despite  the  limitations  of  stage 
and  hall,  audience  participation 
in  the  drama  was  full  and  unbro- 
ken. From  the  opening  curtain, 
which  revealed  a  dramatically 
lit  tableau,  through  the  ironic 
unfolding  of  the  tale  of  a  house 
bitterly  divided  within  itself  to 
the  final  fade-out,  where  poetic 
justice  in  the  person  of  a  half- 
witted daughter  hurls  the  spoils 
over  which  all  are  bickering  into 
the  sea,  there  is  a  strong  vivid- 

ness which  even  the  incredible 
situation  does  not  undermine. 

There  were  faults  in  the  pro- 
duction. A  tendency  .towards  di- 
alect even  over  clarity  obscured 
some  of  the  more  heated  exchan- 
ges between  players.  Still,  the 
idea  came  clearly  through  and 
may  even  have  helped  in  effect- 
ing the  realistic  mood.  A  back- 
ground of  accordion  music  by 
Tony  Keith  was  effectively  work~ 
ed  into  the  movement  of  the  play 
by  director  Sherriff  and  added  a 
fulness  of  colour  seldom  sensed 
in  the  usual  amateur  one-night 

Credit  is  due  in  particular  to 
the  excellent  ,  performances  of 
Ray  Stancer  as  doddering  old  A- 
braham  Bently,  lunatic  miser. 
Nadine  Ragus  who  played  hiii 
slovenly  daughter  with  great 
aptness  and  whose  use  of  dialect, 
hillbilly  variety,  seemed  unbelie- 
vably natural.  John  Harasti.  the 
volatile  Irishman  who  spins  a. 
Machiavellian  web  of  hayloft  in- 
trigue, and  Don  Sutherland,  who 
seems  a  little  gentle  for  the 
brawling  ruffian  he  was  cast  as. 
Lee  Caller  as  the  child  who  folds 
H?.rasti's  web  does  a  very  child- 
like job. 

On  the  other  hand,  U.C.'s  Play- 
er? Guild  did  a  bad  job  by  limit- 
ing the  production  to  two  nights.

"Jacqueline."  the  current 
feature  at  the  Hyland  is  a  film 
very  much  to  be  recommended. 

Produced  in  Belfast,  North-

the  trials  of  a  shipyard  worker 
who  yearns  for  the  counti-y  life 
of  his  youth  and  seeks  conso- 
lation at   the   local   pub.  His

Magic,  strange,  deligtful  —  Mi-'' 
chael  Snow's  present  exhibit  at 
the  snug  Greenwich  Gallery  on 
Bay  Street. 

At  times  his  paintings  are  sim- 
ilar in  their  dreamy  quality  to 
Graham  Coughtry's  luminous 
pictures,  but  Mr.  Snow  has  a  del- 
icate and  whimsical  sense  of  hu- 
mour that  is  unique.  This  is  most 
evident  in  his  pen  drawings  of 
shy,  wispy  chairs  and  tables. 
This  subtle  (humour,  which  show- 
ed to  advantage  in  the  drawings, 
looked  merely  flimsy  in  his 
sculptures.  His  large  oils,  often 
on  the  same  subject — tables  and 
chairs  —  occasionally  showed  a 
nightmarish  schizophrenic  qual-~ 
ity,  at  other  times  appearing  to 
be  enchanted  impressions  of  ev- 
ery-day  objects.  Most  impressive 
was  a  large  flaring  landscape  of 
grass  and  sky  and  light  all  rush- 
ing up  in  an  incantation  of  grow- 

'Avrom  Isaacs,  owner  of  the 
gallery,  is  proud  of  his  artists. 
There  are  four  connected  with 
the  gallery— Michael  Snow,  Ger- 
ald Scott  (whose  portraits  were 
seen  in  Hart  House  last  year), 
Robert  Varvarande,  and  Graham 
Coughtry.  These  are  all  Toronto 
artists  who  have  not  yet  estab- 
lished their  reputations.  Each 
will  have  an  exhibition  during 
the  year  at  the  Greenwich  Gal- 

Mr.  Isaac's  enthusiasm  for  his 
artists  and  Canada  is  the  most 
striking  feature  of  this  gallery. 
He  most  evidently  has  strong 
views  on  the  state  of  Canadian 

art  at  the  moment,  but  lie  hopes 
that  his  gallery  will  do  something 
towards  improving  the  situation. 

He  has  many  other  plans — ex- 
hibiting painting  by  such  artists 
as  Harold  Town  of  the  Painters 
Eleven  —  established  artists  who 
can  be  compared  favourably  (in 
the  opinion  of  Mr.  Isaacs)  with 
the  gallery's  four  artists.  In  the 
future,  he  hopes  to  arrange  ex- 
change visits  with  the  United 
States  and  even  Europe,  He  is 
sending  his  own  private  collec- 
tion of  fine  prints  to  an  exhibit 
in  British  Columbia  and  his  col- 
lection of  European  gallery  post- 
ers will  be  shown  in  Hart  House 
this  winter. 

At  present  the  gallery  is  still 
dependent  on  .the  framing  busi- 
ness —  a  somewhat  subversive 
means  of  livelihood.  This  is  Mr. 
Victor  O'Brien's  racket,  and,  as 
he  claims,  he  "makes  the  whole 
thing  possible."  This  income  gives 
Isaacs  the  freedom  to  patronize 
the  artists  he  chooses  and  to  ar- 
range the  exhibits  he  thinks  will 
benefit  them  and  the  Canadian 
public.  But  Mr.  Isaacs  looks  with 
enthusiasm  at  the  future,  when 
he  renounces  the  framing  busi- 
•ness  and  decides  to  go  straight. 
He  will  then  enlarge  his  gallery, 
his  exhibits  and  his  plans. 

Janet  MacDonald 

thild,  Jacqueline,  is  sympa- 
thetic and  bewitches  a  IocjU 
potentate  into  hiring  her  father 
on  his  estate.  In  spite  of  its 
"happy. ending"  the  film  is  re- 
markably free  from  the  senti- 
mentality usually  associated 
with  films  about  the  Irish. 

The  situation  is  filled  wii  h 
a  genuine  pathos  which  in 
combined  with  much  humour 
and  wit  of  the  dryer  kind.  Anil 
rightly  so,  for  the  canny  Ulstej- 
man  is  of  a  different  breed 
from  the  whimsical  Irishman 
to  the  south  and  very  conscious 
indeed  of  the  difference. 

The  dialogue  of  the  film  ia 
consistently  amusing  and  the 
cast  is  loaded  with  small  char- 
acter parts  all  marvellously 
well  done  by  mature  and  sea- 
soned actors.  John  Gregson  and 
Kathleen  Ryan  as  Jacqueline'.! 
parents  are  excellent  but  the 
show  is  quite  literally  stolen  by

actress  and  her  appealing  per- 
formance alone  makes  the  film 
one  which  cannot  he  too  high-

dull  for  the  400  fans  present  to 
watch  these  campus  rivals. 

Both  teams  were  able  to  make 
some  long  gains,  but  neither  could 
keep  a  drive  going  long  enough 
to  hit  paydirt.  Most  successful 
ground  gainer  for  the  Skulemen 
was  last  year's  star  backfielder 
Ken  Selby.  Vic's  best  ground 
gainers  were  Paul  Newman  and

Ebenhardt  uncorked  a  tremend-

Neil  Perkins  got  away  a  40-yard 
punt  which  went  for  a  rouge.  SPS 
missed  great  chances  to  add  to 
their  total  when  they  failed  to 
pick  up  a  single  point  on  a  field 
goal  attempt  from  inside  the  20- 
yard  line  and  when  they  missed  a 
point  on  a  punt  from  the  25-yard 
line  Vic's  only  other  serious  scor-

quarter  when  a  sustained  -drive 
ended  up  on  the  SPS  10-yard  line 
when  time  ran.  out.

The  offenses  of  both  SPS  and 
Vic  were  practically  stalled  by 
penalties,  which  at  times  aroused 
the  ire  of  both  players  and  fans.

Soccer  Seniors 
Defeat  OAC  5-1 
Baby  Blues  Win 

The  Varsity  and  Intermediate 
soccer  Blues  continued  their  win- 
ning ways  Saturday  by  scoring 
double  victories  over  O.A.C. 

The  Senior  Blues  started  off 
slowly  in  face  of  a  hard-playinp 
Guelph  team.  However,  they  soon 
settled  down  and  for  the  rest  or 
the  game  out  played  O.A.C.  By 
half-time,  the  Blues  held  a  2-0 
lead.  In  the  second  half,  the  Blues 
tallied  three  more  times  to  win 
going  away  5-1.  Blues  goal  scorers 
were  Webb  with  two  goals  and 
Duncan.  Peret,  and  Simbalus  with 
pne  goal  each. 

The  Varsity"  II's  game  followed 
the  pattern  of  the  Blues  game, 
with  the  Seconds  rolling  up  a  3-0 
lead  in  the  first  half-  The  Seconds 
eventually  won  their  game  5-1. 
Baby  Blues  scorers  were  Morris 
with  two  goals,  and  Werry,  Mc- 
Kenzie,  and  Bracken. 


"Stick"  came  up  with  his  usual 
brilliant  defensive  game  on  "Satur- 
day in  Montreal.  He's  rapidly 
earning  a  reputation  as  the  best 
defensive  end  in  the  league.

McGill  Captures 
Intercol  Tennis 
Varsity  Third 

McGill  University  won  its  first 
Intercollegiate  tennis  champion- 
ship in  eight  years  on  Friday 
afternoon,  in  Montreal  edging  the 
University  of  Montreal  by  two 

McGill  finished  the  three-day 
meet  with  18  points,  with  the 
scoring  system  giving  them  one 
point  for  each  match  won  in  the 
round-robin  play.  The  University 
of  Montreal  had  16  points,  follow- 
ed by  Varsity  with  11,  Laval  with 
eight,  and  Western  with  seven. 
Singles  Champion 

Although  the  Western  team 
finished  last,  Fred  Reaume,  one 
of  the  players  from  the  London 
university,  won  the  men's  singles 
crown.  He  went  undefeated 
through  the  three  days  play  and 
defeated  Claude  Lamoureux  of 
Montreal  for  the  title.  He  took  the 
playoff  6-0.  6-3. 

.  The  McGill  doubles  combination 
■of  Mike  Carpenter  and  Pete 
Czuba  defeated  ,  Pierre  Lambert 
and  Lionel  Fortier  of  the  Univer- 
sity of  Montreal  6-2,  6-4  to  win 
the  doubles  title. 

the  top  spot  with  a  3-0-1  record  come  October  27.( 

And  chances  are  better  than  50-50  they'll  be  there  alone. 
McGill  and  Queen's  lock  horns  twice  in  the  next  two  weeks,  and 
could  knock  each  other  right  out  of  the  running.  The  Redmea 
pretty  well  occupy  that  inglorious  position  right  now,  and!  should 
they  win  one,  or  even  two,  from  the  Gaels,  our  boys  \vould  be 
well  on  "their  way  to  bringing  the  precious  Yates  Cup  back  here 
where  it  belongs. 


Chances  of  a  playoff  for  the  title  seem  extremely  remote  when 
one  takes  a  look  at  the  standings  and  the  future  schedule.  Suppose, 
for  instance,  that  Varsity  took  a  pair  from  Western  and  had  seven 
points  going  into  the  McGill  game  here  on  November  3.  If  McGill 
split  with  Queen's  in  their  two  games,  and  if  the  Blues  tripped 
the  Redmert  right  here  in  Toronto,  all  we  would  need  would  be  a 
tie  with  the  Gaels  in  Kingston,  and  the  championship  would  rest 
in  Toronto. 

It  sounds  complicated,  n'est-ce  pas?  But  complicated  or  not, 
it  could  very  well  be  the  way  that  the  remainder  of  the  games 
will  pan  out. 


And  you  can  bet  your  bottom  buck  that  the  Blues'  second 
objective  (number  one  being,  naturally,  the  Yates  Cup)  is  to  roll 
into  Kingston  on  November  10  and  trounce  the  pants  right  off 
Frank  Tindall's  Tricolor. 

Should  such  be  the  case,  it  would  he  sweet  revenge  for  Dalt 
Whites  lads.  No  one  will  ever  forget  Jocko  Thompson's  spine- 
tingling  field  goal  in  the  dying  seconds  of  that  final  game  there 
last  year.  Or  the  18-0  pasting  in  the  playoff. 

Now  that  we  have  successfully  surmised  that  the  Yates  Cup 
is  safely  packaged  and  on  the  way  from  Kingston  to  Hart  House, 
it  might  not  be  a  bad  idea  to  pinch  ourselves  out  of  our  daydream- 
ing (which  usually  follows  a  football  weekend)  and  remember  that 
there  are  still  four  games  left,  and  anything  can  happen. 

But  it  was  a  sweet  little  image,  and  we  can  hope  for  a  happy 


Victoria,  defending  Mulock  Cup  champions,  and  Senior  Skule 
kicked  off  the  intramural  football  season  yesterday  and  after  an. 
hour  and  a  half  of  play,  all  they  had  to  show  for  it  was  a  1-1  tie, 
hour  and  a  half  of  ploy,  all  they  had  to  show  for  it  was  a  1-1  tie, 
plus  several  lost  tempers. 

Frank  Ebenhardt,  a  big  cog  in  the  Red  and  Gold's  march  to 
the  title  last  season,  came  off  the  bench  to  hoof  a  70-yard  punt 
for  Vies  only  point.  Skule  tied  it  up  later  in  the  game. 

According  to  the  remarks  floating  from  the  players'  positions 
on  the  sidelines,  the  refereeing  left  much  to  be  desired.  Remember, 
chaps,  that  referees  are  human  as  well.  They  make  mistakes  just 
as  we  do,  and  it  is  only  experience  (which  comes  with  confidence) 
that  these  errors  are  written  off. 

That  gentleman  Curt  Russell  has  a  great  capacity  for  picking 
up  loose  footballs  bouncing  around  football  fields  .  .  .  And  in  the 
air  above  the  gridiron  as  well  ...  He  owns  two  pass  interceptions 
to  date  and  an  important  fumble  recovery  in  the  McGill  game  .  .  . 
It  was  great  to  see  little  Al  Wong  playing  such  a  standout  game 
on  Saturday  .  .  .  The  "hard-luck"  kid  of  Varsity  football,  filling 
in  for  ankle-injured  Pete  Maik,  ranked  second  only  to  Tlmmy  Reid 
in  the  ground-gained  department  ...  It  was  his  long  run  that  set 
the  stage  for  the  first  Blue  touchdown  .  .  . 

Speaking  of  Tim  Reid  ...  He  picked  himself  up  a  Sammy  Taft 
fedora  when  adjudged  the  best  Blue  on  the  field  on  Saturday  .  .  . 
Said  gift  courtesy  Shopsy's  .  .  .Picked  by  Joe  Crysdale,  Hal  KeUy, 
Pete  Malk  and  an  unknown  individual  from  Montreal  .  .  .  Tim 
came  in  for  a  round  of  razzing  from  his  team-mates  last  night  at 
the  flicker  session  of  the  MeGUl  game  ...  He  produced  a  little 
headstand  ("to  please  the  crowd")  after  his  touchdown  .  .  . 

I  must  apologize  for  not  being  on  hand  when  Captain  R  closed 
the  party  in  652  at  the  Queen's  .  .  .  And  how  he  missed  387.  I'll 
never  know  .  .  .  There  was  no  hard  feelings,  though  ...  He  was 
cheered  roundly  on  the  return  journey  .  .  . 

Rugger  Blues  Win,  Tie  At  Cornell 

The  Varsity's  Firsts'  rugger  team 
moved  south  over  the  weekend 
to  crack  the  Ivy  League,  repre- 
sented by  Cornell  University  of 
Utica,  by  winning  8-3  on  Satur- 
day afternoon.  The  visit  which 
was  to  have  been  a  round-robin 
tournament  with  Varsity,  Cornell, 
and  Massachusets  Institute  of 
Technology,  turned  into  a  two- 
■-game  series  between  Varsity  and 
Cornell  when  M.I.T.  failed  to 

In  the  game  an  Saturday,  it 
was  a  contest  between  the  bigger 
American  team  and  a  speedy 
Varsity  team.  Throughout  the  first 
half,  the  fast  Blues'  forwards  car- 
ried the  play  into  the  Cornell 
i  half  but  were  unable  to  score.  As

f  fensive  threat  Cornell  mounted.  In 
[both  offence  and  defence,  the 
i  playing  of  Al  Bridee  stood  out. 

In  the  second  half,  the  team- 
work of  the  Blues'  forwards  paid 
off  when  Andy  Baines  gathered 
in  a  loose  ball  and  dived  over 
for  a  try  to  give  Varsity  a  3-0 

went  over  for  the  second  Varsity 
try  which  Chris  Jacques  convert- 
ed. The  injury  to'  Blues'  fullback 
Paul  Butt  in  the  final  minutes  of 
play  gave  Cornell  the  man  Ad- 
vantage and  they  capitalized  on 

it.  counting  their  lone  tally  of  the 
game.  The  final  score  was  8-3.

Cornell.  With  both  teanls  reshuffl-

The  success  of  the  first  visit  by 
a  Varsity  rugger  team  to  the 
United  States  in  ^nodern  times 
has  led  to  the  hope  that  it  might 
become  a  permanent  fixture. 

St.  Hilda's  Whip  UC  Gals  6-3 

St.  Hilda's  stepped  right  up  for 
a  second  win  against  UC  yester- 
day afternoon  in  the  Stadium.  The 
game  got  off  to  a  slow  start  with 
UC  failing  to  score  in  the  first 
inning,  and  an  incomplete  lineup 
hindered  their  progress.  Excite- 
ment rose  when  St.  Hilda's  chalk- 
ed up  a  4-0  lead  at  the  end  of 
the  first  inning,  aided  by  Pat 
Shannon's  home  run.  Rosemarv

long  balls  in  the  second  inning.

Sudden  determination  got  the 
better  of  UC  and  Ann  Millar  and

THE  VARSITY,  Tuesday,  October  16th,  1956 

Cathie  Breslin  Meets 

J.  C.  Boileau  Qrant 

"The  time  comes,  you  know," 
tv/inkled  Professor  J.  C.  Boileau 
Grant,  "for  the  old  horses  to  be 
put  out  lo  grass.  The  new  head 
ol  the  Department  of  Anatomy. 
Or.  Duckworth,  has  very  kindly 
>iot  only  given  me  free  rein  in 
.he  grass,  but  a  stall  as  well." 

Between  the  walls  of  his  base- 
ment stall  in  the  Anatomy  Build- 
ng,  Dr.  Grant  is  as  busy  as  ever, 
.since  his  retirement  as  head  of 
,he  department  last  spring.  At 
the  moment,  he  is  revising  the 
textbooks  he  has  written  over  the 
course  of  his  teaching  years. 
"Books  are  like  people."  he  says. 
"You  have  to  feed  plants  and 
people  —  and  books  are  the  same. 
They  have  to  be  kept  up  to  date". 

Indians  on  horseback,  when  I  got 
the  telegram.  I  had  a  choice  of 
giving  it  up,  hurrying  back  and 
spoiling  the  summer  —  or  taking 
my  chances.  Well.  I  decided  to 
go  on.  And  when  the  time  came, 
I  managed  to  find  a  plane  some- 
where, and  fly  out  to  Edmonton 
to  take  a  train  to  Toronto". 

This  was  twenty-five  years  ago. 
And  Dr.  Grant  is  glad  he  came. 
'Toronto  is  a  pretty  city."  he 
thinks,  "if  they  don't  fill  up  all 
the  ravines.  It  has  a  lot  of  natural 
beauty.  And  one  likes  the  people." 

Both  Dr.  Grant  and  his  wife  can 
claim  Scottish  clergymen-  as 
fathers;  his  wife  is  fond  of  figure- 
skating,  and  he  admits  that  he 
"likes  to  watch  her".  They  have 

We  asked  him  about  the  high 
Ights  of  those  years.  "Well,  every- 
■thing  is  a  highlight."  Dr.  Grant 
irgues  convincing.  '"Summers  and 
winters  —  why,  there  are  high- 
Jlghts  all  the  time!" 

And  this  is  probably  a  good 
description  of  the  lively  life  that 
legan  in  Edinburgh  some  seventy 
years  ago. 

After  studying  at  the  universit- 
ies of  Durham  and  Edinburgh,  Dr. 
Grant  found  himself  in  anatomy. 
"I  thought  at  first  it  was  an  es- 
sential step  to  surgery,"  he  ex- 
plains. "But  I  kept  on  with  it 
.or  four  years.  The  World  War 
came  —  and  after  that,  I  got 
the  chair  in  a  anatomy  in  Win- 
nipeg —  so  I  stayed." 

About  this  time,  Dr.  Grant  be- 
came intrigued  with  the  problems 
of  the  North  American  Indian  and 
anthropology.  "It  was  only  a  hob- 
by, you  see,"  says  Dr.  Grant,  "But 
nothing  was  being  done  in  Can- 
ada about  the  measurements  and 
hlood  groupings  of  the  Indians.  I 
suggested  the  idea  in  Ottawa,  and 
so  I  was  sent  out." 

The  work,  without  a  doubt,  was 
difficult.  "You've  got  to  learn  the 
technique,"  explained  Dr.  Grant. 
"You've  got  to  have  interpreters 
jmd  all.  And  you  can't  just  walk 
In  and  measure  them,  of  course," 

With  a  chuckle.  Dr.  Grant  re- 
called one  tribe  which  some- 
where collected  the  impression 
\hat  he  was  there  to  measure  them 
"for  tlte  next  war.  They  just  dis- 
appeared into  the  woods!" 

It  was  in  the  middle  of  one  of 
these  expedilions  to  the  North- 
west territories,  in  fact,  that  Dr. 
Grant  was  notified  that  he  was 
offered  the  chair  of  anatomy  at 
Toronto.  "I  still  don't  know  how 
ihey  found  me."  Dr.  Grant  con- 
fesses. "I  was  somewhere  out  in 
the  woods,  going  up  to  visit  some 


a  cottage  in  (he  country,  where  Dr. 
Grant  tries  to  keep  Lake  Ontario 
from  beating  away  the  property. 

"The  water  is  a  very  intelligent 
thing,  you  know,"  he  warns.  "Each 
summer  I  find  another  way  of 
getting  around  it  —  and  the  water 
wins  every  year." 

Along  with  the  cottage.  Dr. 
Grant  has  a  self-winding  watch,  a 
summer  "sun  couch",  a  pair  of 
rugged  buffalo  book-ends,  and  a 
handsome  letter-opener  that 
roughly  resembles  a  scalpel.  These 
are  his  gifts,  "with  affection  and 
gratitude  from  students  past  and 

They  are  to  concrete  expressions 
of  Ihe  legend  of  Dr.  Grant  as  a 
teacher  which  came  to  life  in  his 
quarter-century  at  Toronto. 

A  university  is  full  of  people.  It 
was  challenging  to  us  to  find  of 
these  many  expendables,  a  few 
seem  to  somehow  assume  a  stature 
that  leaves  the  landscape,  after 
them,  a  little  bare.  So  we  set  out 
to  discover  how  a  legend,  is  born. 

"I  have  never  been  so  impress- 
ed  by  the  integrity  of  a  professor,' 
one  student  said  of  Dr.  Grant. 
"And  I  have  never  had  more  re- 
spect for  a  teacher.  But  why?  I 
don't  know  why!" 

The  reasons  are  various.  He  was 
the  only  full  professor  who  never 
missed  a  class  party.  He  locked 
himself  in  his  office  for  fifteen 
minutes  before  each  class,  to  re- 
view the  lecture  that  he  had 
written  and  published  and  de- 
livered many  times  before. 

When  a  student  came  to  ask  him 
for  a  recommendation  for  a 
scholarship,  he  set  aside  an  hour 
to  become  acquainted  with  him. 

"A  fantastic  character"  was  the 
description  one  student  gave  to 
him.  "His  actions  —  his  voice  — 
his  phenomonal  patience  —  his 
dry  wit  —  his  surprising  and 
pleasing  little  idiosyncracies  add- 
ed up  to  a  lecture  that  we  will 
never  see  replaced." 

'  He  tried  to  make  us  reason  by 
basic  principles." 'another  student 
ventured,  "When  he  came  to  the 
lab.  you  never  forgot  the  things 
he  said. 

"In  fact,"  the  student  decided, 
"you  never  forgot  anything  he 
said,  period". 

The  lectures  and  the  labs  were 
not  the  whole  of  the  legend.  His 
students  knew  him  equally  well 
for  his  "tremendous  knowledge" 
of  any  part  of  anatomy  —  and  for 
his  work  in  criminology  in  the 
identification  of  old  bones. 

They  heard 'that  he  refused  to 
sit  for  an  official  portrait. 

They  saw  him  race  up  any  and 
all  stairs,  three  steps  to  the  leap. 

They  sat  through  a  full  three 
lectures  before  they  understood 
a  word  of  his  unusual  style. 

They  "watched  for  his  academic 
gown,  and  his  "Edinburgh  at-, 
titude".  They  hailed  him  as  "the 
last  of  the  gentlemen  —  above  all, 
an  imperialist,  a  Scotsman,  and  an 
Edinburgh  man  who  never  forgot 

They  knew  him  as  a  teacher 
who  commanded  respect,  and  just 
a  little  bit  of  fear. 

To  his  staff,  he  was  "the  Chief," 
and- "ihe  greatest  living  practical 
anatomist."  But  for  long  proces- 
sion of  Medsmen  who  cut  up  their 
cadavers  under  him,  J.  C.  Boileau 
Grant  was,  quite  simply,  what 
he  most  wanted  to  be  —  an 
anatomy  teacher.

Michelle  To  Wait 
Until  Monday  For 
Tied  Up  Winner 

If  the  student  whose  name 
Michelle  Boudet  draws  Saturday 
afternoon  already  has  a  date,  the 
French  starlet  will  wait  to  go 
out  with  him  Monday  or  Tuesday. 

Because  sales  have  been  slow 
getting  started,  Blue  and  White 
Society  officials  announced  last 
night  that  Miss  Boudet  will  stay 
in  Toronto  to  help  the  United 
Appeal  drive.  The  Society  was 
worried  that  too  many  male 
students    will    have    lined  up 

dates    by    Saturday  afternoon. 

Raffle  tickets  to  win  a  date 
with  Michelle  went  on  sale  yes- 

"While  sales  have  been  going 
fairly  well,"  Student  Service 
Commissioner  Carole  Broadhurst 
said,  "we  want  to  make  sure  this 
campaign  goes  well  over  the 

Proceeds  from  the  sale  of  raf- 
fle tickets  all  go  to  the  campus

Lucky  Fellow 

will  have  a  date  with  Michelle  Boudet  Satur- 
day night  if  his  25c  ticket  is  picked  from  thous- 
f   others.   All   the  money  goes  to  the  United  Appeal,  and.  she'll

SAC  Decides  Fate 
Of  NFCUS  Tonight 

By  JOHN  GRAY,  Varsity  Staff  Reporter 

NFCUS'  fate  will  be  debated 
again  tonight,  as  the  Students' 
Administrative  Council  tries  to 
decide  if  U.  of  T.  will  once  more 
enter  the  nation-wide  university 

'  Fresh  from  the  recent  national 
convention  in  Montreal,  SAC  pre- 
sident Gord-Forstner  was  optimis- 
tic when  questioned  about  chances 
for  re-entering. 

"The  majority  of  our  demands 
were  met,"  he  said,  "and  you  can't 
help  feeling  hopeful.  I  think  we 
have  the  best  program  in  years 
to  offer  them," 

Probably  no  definite  decision 
will  be  reached  at  tonight's  de- 
bate, but  a  general  review  of  the 
whole  question  wil  be  held.  Forst- 
ner  perdicted  that  the  question 
wil  be  settled  "within  the  next 
few  weeks;  the  sooner  the  better". 

Both  Forstner  and  Vic  repre- 
sentative Gerry  Helleiner  felt  that 
there  wpuld  not  be  a  plebiscite  of

was  a  very  close  vote  by  SAC 
voters  would  there  be  a  campus 

Both  spokesmen '  were  set 
against  a  mandate  by  the  separ- 
ate colleges.  Such  a  mandate, 
when  the  delegates  were  told 
how  to  vote  by  their  respective 
colleges,  would  destroy  the  pur- 
pose of  the  SAC. 

Also  on  the  agenda  for  the  SAC 
is  another  major  problem.  The 
fate  of  the  bulletin  board  that 
was  to  be  put  on  top  of  the  SAC 
building  last  year  wil  be  decided.

life  and  restaurants 

October,  window-signs  and  newspaper  ads  tell 
us,  is  restaurant  month.  We  are  to  "Enjoy  Life,"  they 
say,  and  "Eat  Out  More  Often". 

A  splendid  idea!  And  we  heartily  agree.  We've 
always  been  in  favour  of  Enjoying  Life.  But  in  Ontario 

Establishments  where  one  Eats  Out  in  Toronto  — 
and  even  worse  in  cities  and  towns  that  depend  more 
heavily  on  the  tourist  trade— seem  to  be  designed  so 
that  one  gets  the  least  possible  Enjoyment. 

There  are,  of  course,  a  few  notable  exceptions. 
There  are  some  very  fine  restaurants  in  Toronto;  and 
more  are  being  built.  Almost  always,  they  specialize 
in  some  kind  of  foreign  cuisine.  But  generally,  such 
discourteous  service  and  unimaginative  food  could 
be  provided  only  with  a  great  deal  of  careful  plan- 

Northern  Ontario  is  a  particularly  bad  example. 
From  about  Huntsville  north  —  into  the  land  that 
thousands  of  tourists  think  is  most  typically  Canadian 
—the  food  gets  worse  and  worse.  In  the  country  that 
discovered  bear  and  moose  steaks,  that  produces 
most  of  the  continent's  venison)  that  serves  at  home 
breakfasts  of  syrup-soaked  baked  beans,  one  does 
not  savour  soggy  cereals  and  badly  cooked  Western- 
raised  meat. 

And  the  service  is  worse  than  the  food.  In  the 
United  States,  at  whose  boorishness  we  are  all  too  . 
prone  to  sneer,  a  restaurant-customer  is  treated  as  a 
guest.  They  even  have  free  cups  of  coffee.  It  is  those 
small  touches  (free  matches  with  cigarettes)  that 
make  Eating  Out  Enjoyable. 

In  Europe,  dining  is  an  art.  This  counrty  that  de- 
pends on  the  varied  origins  of  its  people  for  virtually 
all  of  its  culture*  should  not  be  ashamed  to  absorb 
their  culinary  abilities  and  adapt  them  to  its  own  very 
fine  foods. 

When  the  restaurant  people  realize  they  have- 
duties  as  hosts— to  both  natives  and  tourists— that's 
when  we'll  start  Eating  Out  More  Often— and  Enjoy- 
ing it. 

"For  The  Sake  Of  Peace  .  .  .  Try" 

Deep  among  the  roots  of  every 
tension  between  nations,  deep 
among  the  roots  of  every  person 
in  those  nations  lies  home  and 
race.  I  am  an  Anglo-Sax  Can- 

I  am  not  Slavic  or  Negroid,  nor 
am  I  from  Italy  or  from  Burma. 

And  yet  I  am  a  Canadian.  And 
if  I  and  my  family  and  my  friends 
and  my  community  and  my  home- 
land do  not  understand  what 
makes  people  other  than  ourselves 


tick,  the  tensions  between  Na- 
tions will  be  released  only  by 

To  meet  this  situation,  the  Ex- 
ternal Affairs  Commission  of  the 
■SAC  has  set  up  the  Host  Com- 
mittee. In  the  past  few  years  a 
great  variety  of  U.  of  T.  students 
have  got  together  to.  meet  and 
know  different  people  —  and  have 
got  a  real  bang  out  of  doing  it 
—  at  a  reception  in  Falconer  Hall.

Varsity  Sending 
Seeking  Fourth  Straight  Crown 

THE  VARSITY,  Wtdensday,  October  17th,  1956 

Varsity's  senior  track  team  will 
be  striving  to  emulate  the  feat 
of  their  football  brethren  this 
afternoon  at  McGill  as  they  aim 
for  their  fourth  consecutive  In-

by  Olympic  trial  winner  Ron 
Wallingford,  and  Pete  Reid.  the 
Bedmen  are  favoured  to  end  Tor- 

Vic  Gals  Smash 
St.  Hilda's  10-0 
POT's  Winners 

POT  12  —  Vic  4 

The  athletes  from  POT  downed 
Victoria  II'  12-4  in  the  women's 
softbail  match  yesterday  at  the 
Trinity  field.  A  good-sized  crowd 
was  on  hand  to  watch  one  of  the 
best  games  played  this  season. 

The  game  was  definitely  in  the 
bag  when  Jane  Furnesse  smashed 
a  tremenduous  hit,  giving  her 
ample  time"  to  shuffle  around  to 
home  plate. 

The  next  four  batters  unfold- 
ed their  strength.  plating  runs 
with  amazing  rapidity.  Vic  only 
scored  in  the  first  inning,  but 
Janet  Chisholm  gave  the  spect- 
ators a  few  tense  moments  when 
she  slid  into  all  the  bases  on  her 
journey  around  after  a  bit. 

The  batting  supremacy  of  the 
Pots  seemed  to  put  Vic  off-guard 
in  the  field,  but  the  gals  tried 
to  overcome  their  weakens  in  the 
last  two  innings. 

•If  the  longest  hit  of  the  day 
had  been  measured,  the  laurels 
would  have  to  go  to  POTs  south- 
paw, Carol  Marshall. 

Vie  10  — St.  Hilda's  0. 

In  an  exciting  game  played 
yesterday  in  the  Stadium,  the 
notorious  gals  of  Vic  I  creamed 
the  Saints  10-0.  Mary  Foster  of 
Vic  pitched  a  tremenduous  no- 
hitter,  as  well  as  slaming  a  home 

In  short,  she  is  the  teams  main- 
stay, along  with  Pru  .Smith  and 
Sandy  Grant,  who  also  collected 
homers,  and  Sylvia  Kerr  their 
ace  catcher.  Credit  is  also  due  to 
Wendy  Laird  and  Sheila  Auld. 

Hancy  Hewitt,  of  St.  Hilda's, 
pitched  very  well,  but  nearly  all 
of  their  batters  found  they  just 
couldn't  hit  the  ball. 

onto's  dominance  of  the  annual 
fall  meet. 

Strong  Squad 

The  Blue  and  White  squad  will 
as  usual,  field  a  strong,  well- 
balanced  team  built  around  a  nu- 
cleus of  seasoned  veterans  and 
highlighted  by  some  outstanding 
freshmen.  Leading  Varsity's  hopes 
for  an  upset  win,  will  be  Skule's 
star  sprinter,  Angus  Bruneau.  Gus, 
in  his  first  year  of  Intercollegiate 
activity,  will  be  attempting  to  fill 
the  spikes  of  graduate  Dick  Hard- 
ing, as  he  tries  to  capture  the 
triple  sprint  crown.  As  well  as 
running  the  100,  220,  and  440  yard 
dashes,  Gus  also  anchors  the  mile 
relay,  an  event  Toronto  rarily 
loses.  "Veteran  performer  Bill 
Gelling  will  also  shoulder  a  heavy 
burden,  competing  in  the  880,  440, 
and  mile  relay.  Last  year's  winner 
Bill  Varey  and  veteran  Bruce 
Hughes  will  provide  Toronto's 
challenge  to  Wallingford  in  the

Williams  Runs 

Blue  footballer  Norm  Williams 
will  be  the  favourite  in  the  110 
high  and  220  low  hurdles,  ably 
backed  up  by  former  high  school 
star  Al  Gardner.  The  Blues  strong 
field  contingent  will  be  led  by 
Freshman  pole  vaulter  Jerry 
Zadiyko  -and  Jerry  Swinden  in 
the  javelin.  Good  performances 
are  also  looked  forward  to  from 
U.Cs  discus  man  '  Ron  Larson, 
Vic's  half-miler  Jim  Snider,  and 
fildmen  Tony  Barrs,  Mai -Mcleod 
and  Bill  Sayers. 

Coaches  Confident 

Coaches  Hal  Brown  and  Fred 
Fotte  have  expressed  their  satis- 
faction with  the  team's  workouts 
and  are  confident  that  the  boys 
can  "bring  home  the  bacon"  once 
more.  Along  with  Varsity  and  Mc- 
Gill, Western  and  Queens  will  also 
be  sending  teams  to  Montreal's 
Molson  Stadium.

Stay  On  Ground 

Trinity  stuck  to  the  ground  dur- 
ing most  of  the  game,  only 
throwing  four  passes,  and  scored 
both  of  their  touchdowns  on  line 
plays.  The  first  Panther  score 
came  early  in  the  opening  quarter 
when  they  marched  downfield 
from  their  own  25  yard  line  in 
a  series  of  line  plays.  The  march 
was  led  by  the  rushes  of  backs 
Tony  Boeckh  and  Smith,  and  was 
climaxed  by  Bob  Metcalfe's  dash 
from  the  13  yard  line  to  pay  dirt. 
Tom,  Karrys  converted.  Six  plays 
later  quarterback  Brook  Ellis 
kicked  a  single.  On  the  first 
play  of  the  final  quarter  Smith 
•ed  a  picture  touchdown  to 
the  game  away  for  Trinity. 
Starting  from  the  Skule  33  yard 
line  twisted  and  turned  through 
the  Skule  line  and  sped  for  the 
goal  line  and  the  score.  Karrys 
again  converted. 

Single  Point 

The  only  Engineers'  point  came 
when  they  recovered  a  Panther 
fumble  deep  in  Trinity  territory 
on  the  third  play  of  the  game. 
After  being  held  in  two  plunges, 
Derrick  Lunn  kicked  for  the 
point.  Skule  threatened  late  in  the 
game  when  they  grabbed  another 
Red  and  Black  fumble  on  Trinity's 
46  yard  line.  Lunn's  passes  to  Hep- 
burn and  Read  carried  play  to  the 

nine  yard  line.  Read's  catch  bord- 
ered on  the  spectacular  as  Ire 
made  a  finger  tip  grab  of  the  bail 
just  before  it  touched  the  ground. 
Good  Tackling 
The  Panther  attack  was  spaiV- 
ed  by  the  tackling  and  blocking 
of  rookie  linemen  Kent  Doe.  and 
Rich  Wilson,  and  veteran  end, 
Pete  Saunderson.  Skule's  attack 
was  led  by  the  running  of  Hope- 
Sill  Kovacs,  and  Snihura  who  also 
played  well  defensively  The  SPS 
pass  offence  was  paced  by  tho 
fine  passing  of  Lunn  who.  but  foT 
rushing  of  the  Trinity  line  would) 
have  had  more  pass  completions 
and  receiving  of  Read  and  Hep- 
burn. The  kicking  of  both  teams 
averaged  35  yeards  as  both  Ellis 
and  Lunn  booted  well.

"Russia  has  no  need  of  additional  territory  or  raw  material," 
Mid  Mr.  J.  B.  Salsburg,  an  organizer  for  the  Labor  Progressive 
Party,  during  a  Political  Economy  Club  talk  yesterday. 
"It   needs   a   long   stretch  of 

peace  for  the  development  of  the

He  said  the  Russia's  desire  for 
the  spread  of  communist  doctrine 
has  lon6  "6°  l'een  rcfuted-  The 
development  of  Communism  -  de- 
pends on  the  condition  of  each 
country.  "For  example,"  he  said, 
"ther  is  no  Red  army  in  Italy,  and 
yet  that  country  has  the  largest 
Communist  party  outside  Russia 
and  the  satellite  nations.  Why? 
Because  the  economic  and  social 
conditions  in  Italy  made  it  poss- 

To  the  question  "How  was  it 
possible  that  one  man.  Stalin, 
could  seize  so  much  power  un- 
checked?", Mr.  Salsberg  replied, 
"I  do  not  know". 

"This  is  he  question  that  all 
thinking  Communists  are  asking. 
It  is  a  fault  of  the  system  that 
causes  this  inevitably  to  happen? 
Of  what?  In  any  case,  we  demand 
an  answer,"  he  said. 

Four  months  ago  in  Moscow  he 
discussed  this  very  problem  with 
Nikita  Khrushchev  and '  other 
members  of  the  politburo.  He 
claimed  he  saw  the  evidence  of 
"horrible  crimes"  perpetrated  by 
the  Stalin  regime.

"Egypt  Has  A  Right  To  Absolute 
Control  Of  The  Suez  Canal" 

"I  think  war  can  be  averted;  I  think  the  Suez  crisis  can  be 
solved  peaceably,"  said  J.  B.  Salsberg-  yesterday  to  the  Political 
Economy  Club. 

He  stated  that  "Egypt  has  a  right  to  nationalism,  a  right  to 
absolute  control  of  the  canal,"  but  that  Egypt  should  "absolutely 
guarantee  that  the  Suez  Canal  be  open  to  aU  ships -of  all  nations 
without  exception"  and  that  this  should  be  accomplished  "without 
struggle,  but  through  negotiations" 

Salsberg,  a  former  M.P.P. 
and  a  member  of  the  Labor  Pro- 
gressive Parly,  outlined  the  four

Mr.  Salsberg  cited  the  Bandung 
conference  as  "One  of  the  dra- 
matic signposts  in  history  —  the 

elected  represented  of  colonial 
peoples  gathered  without  inter- 

regard  to  the  world.' 

With  an  apology  to  the  Ameri- 
cans present,  he  said  that  the 
United  States  was  "wobbling  on 
the  Suez  issue  and  that  U.S.  bu- 
sinessmen were  seeking  economic 
control  of  the  canal  by  taking 
over  toll  collections  in  return  for 
improving  the  canal."

^Jl^bout  1215  A.D. 

The  college  has  been  promot- 
ing- the  re-discovery  of  the  stone 
in  connection  with  its  forthcom- 
ing Cornerstone  Ball.  Students 
were  asked  to  submit  guesses 
with  a  ten-dollar  prize  being 
offered  to  the  winner. 

Not  one  student  ventured  a 
guess,  although  the  last  edition 
of  the  U.C.  Gargoyle  headlined 
"Where's  The  U.C.  Cornerstone?" 

Prof.  Milnes  found  Sir  Daniel's 
article  in  a  now  defunct  maga- 
zine, the  University  Monthly1.  Sir 
Daniel,  then  president  of  the 
university,  had  been  one  of  the 
men  who  laid  the  cornerstone. 
The  article  had  been  written  for 
The  Varsity,  answering  questions 
about  the  stone's  location. 

The  story  was  not  used  in 
The  Varsity. 

The  passage  which  Prof. 
Milnes  uses  to  substantiate  his 
statement  reads:  "Here  then,  in 
the  bush,  and  far  away  as  it  then  , 
seemed  from  the  young  city,  that 
had  laid  its  own  foundations  at 
the  mouth  of  the  Don,  and  was  | 

then  slowly  extending  westward 
and  northward,  the  members  of 
the  building  committee,  three  in 
number,  met  one  morning  in 
October,  1856,  and  laid  the  first 
stone  under  the  southeast  corner 
of  the  new  building. 

In  opening  the  discussion,  SAC 
President  Gord  Forstner  said.  "We 
were  more  successful  at  Montreal 
than  we  dared  hope".  All  the  Tor- 
onto delegates  were  emphatic 
about  the  spirit  of  cooperation 
that  was  shown  at  the  conference. 

The  main  problem  of  the  Mon- 
treal meeting  centred  around  the 
conflict  between  large  and  small 
universities.  Also  involved  was  the 
question  of  the  French  language 

The  latter  problem  was  met 
when  the  conference  elected  Ga- 
briel Gagnon  as  National  Presid- 
ent. Provision  was  also  made  for 
the  permanent  employment  of  a 
French  stenographer  at  the  na- 
tional headquarters. 

If  Toronto  is  accepted  into  NF- 
CUS  a  sliding  scale  of  voting  will 
go  into  effect.  This  will  mean  that 
U.  of  T.  will  not  carry  as  much 
of  the  financial  burden  as  pre- 

Also  approved  was  the  prin- 
cipal of  representative  voting, 
long  a  bone  of  contention  on  the 
part  of  the  larger  universities. 
This  will  mean  that  Varsity  will 
now  have  five  voting  members, 
when  they  previously  had  one.  The 
representatives  of  the  larger  uni- 
versities had  long  felt  that  there 
had  been  "too  much  money  for 
too  little  power". 

Another  accomplishment  was 
the  measure  of  decentralization 
achieved  at  the  conference.  No 
continuous  or  rational  program 
had  been  possible  by  the  con- 
tinual changeover  of  the 
executive.  The  principal  of  de- 
centralization wil  allow  some  con- 
tinuity,   and    a    more  effective 

method  of  looking  after  local  pro- 
blems, It  will  also  save  NFCUS 
some  $1,600. 

National  Affairs  Chairm;  i  Terry 
Helleiner  also  expressed  his  satis- 
faction with  the  Montreal  .Flor- 
ence. "The  moves  were  n  I  iiKirte 
to  woo  the  large  universi  i  ts,"  ln- 
said,  "a  spirit  of  comproir.ise  and 
downright  good  sense  prevailed 
throughout  the  conference 

In  debating  the  motion  to  re- 
join. Engineering  repre:  en  1  a  t  I  ve 
Michael  Laughton  sugges  ed  that 
mandates  be  held  by  the  tufferent 
colleges  and  faculties.  Such  a 
method  was  used  before  the  vote 
to  withdraw  last  year. 

Helleiner  replied.  "We  were 
elected  to  represent  them  on  the 
Council,  we  should  make  the  de- 
cision". Flo  Middleton.  also  at 
Montreal,  said  that  this  was  un- 
reasonable, that  mandates  could 
not  be  called  on  every  decision. 
There  was  little  mention  of  the 
possibilities  of  a  campus-wide  re- 

Forstner  said  that  the  NFCUS 
motion  was  a  matter  of  only  $3.- 
00.  while  the  Varsity  was  given 
$10,000  without  a  mandate.  "There 
is  no  alternative,  we  must  re- 
enter NFCUS". 

The  motion  was  then  voted  on 
and  carried  17-3.  There  was  only 
one  abstention. 

In  voting  against  the  motion 
Geoffery  Johnston  of  Knox  said, 
"I  voted  against  the  motion  be- 
cause I  disagreed  with  the  es- 
sential nature  of  a  national  stud- 
ent federation.  The  decision  was  a 
wise  one,  in  fact  we  are  stuck 
with  NFCUS.  I  think  we  must 
make  the  best  of  it" 

Dust  Off  That  Lava  *  Lava 

Crusaders,  cavaliers,  the  Klu 
Klux  Klan,  Norwegian  peasant 
girls,  policemen,  and  Falstaff 
highlighted  Hart  House  Masquer- 
ades of  bygone  years. 

This  year,  on  Friday,  Octo- 
ber 26th,  the  House  Committee 
of  Hart  House  is  doing  it  again 
with  another  hilarious  costume 
ball,  The  dance  was  a  highlight 
of  the  social  season  on  campus 
from  1919  to  1937,  and  was  re- 
vived last  year.  The  success  of 
last  year's  ball  inspired  the  corn- 


mittee  to  continue  the  tradition 
of  the  "roaring  twenties." 

Originality  has  always  been 
stressed  more  than  elaboration. 
The  Zulu  chieftain  always  made 
his  own  costume.  In  1931,  the  de- 
pression caused  some  youths  to 
resort  even  to  pyjamas. 

In  former  years,  crowds  at 
the  masquerade  have  reached 
22,00,  with  resultant  cracked  ribs 
and  crushed  feet. 

Tickets  were  often  so  scarce 

that  line-ups  would  form  the 
night  before.  There  were  gate 
crashers  galore  so  that  police 
patrol  was  a  real  necessity.  Fa- 
culty rivalry  ran  very  high.  Last 
year,  silver  dollars  were  handed 
out  to  the  first  one  hundred 

The  committee,  after  much 
consultation,  has  decided  to  limit 
the  sale  to  350  couples.  Tickets 
are  available  at  the  Hall  Porter's 
Desk  in  Hart  House  at  §2.75. 
Music  will  be  by  Mart  Kennv  in 
the  Great  Hall.

Open  Week-end 

OCTOBER  19,  20,  21. 

For  Information:  The  Graduate  Office,  Hart  House  —  WA.  3-7578 

AVR  Girl 
Is  Lost 

The  AVR  has  lost  its  producer 
and  doesn't  know  where  to  find 

Liz  Hoyles,  graduate  student 
at  University  College,  hasn't 
shown  up  on  this  campus  yet. 

When  last  heard  of,  she  was  on 
her  way  from  Vancouver.  That 
was  more  than  ten  days  ago. 

And  what  is  AVR  doing  mean 
while?  "Oh,  we  seem  to  be  get 
ling  along,"  Logan  Varey,  AVR 
Chairman,  and  SAC  rep  said  last 

Varey,  somewhat  at  a  loss  in 
the  face  of  questioning  from 
Knox  rep.  Geoff  Johnston,  said 
he  didn't  really  know  if  the  All- 
Varsity  Revue  could  get  along 
without  a  producer. 

Miss  Hoyles  was  elected  to 
the  position  last  year.  In  theory, 
there  will  be  a  male  co-producer 
named  this  fall.  So  far  none  has 
been  elected. 

Finance  Commissioner  Steve 
Freedhoff  thought  the  Revue 
should  get  itself  a  producer. 

Rapid  discussion  of  the  AVR 
budget  (which  will  give  the  show 
a  profit  of  $200  if  all  seats  are 
filled  every  night)  followed  the 
talk  of  Miss  Hoyles'  disappear- 

Presently  according  to  Logan 
Varley,  he,  Curt  Reis,  and  a 
few  others  (unnamed)  are  doing 
the  work.  Varey  said  they  were 
making  out  all  right. 

Casting  for  the  show — Finian's 
Rainbow— begins  next  week. 

Float  Parade 

Those  Varsity  Blues 

Cheerleaders,  bands,  and  a 
motorcycle  escort  of  the  Toronto 
Police  will  highlight  this  year's 
float  parade  Saturday. 

If  the  floats  live  up  to  the  pic- 
tures painted  of  them  by  their 
designers,  the  parade  should  com- 
pare "quite  favourably"  with 
those  of  other  years,  states  Brian 
Anderson,  chairman  of  the  float 

The  theme  —  "Varsity  Blues", 
the  complaints  of  the  various  col- 
leges and  faculties,  —  should  lend 
itself  well  to  humour  and  satire, 
though  the  absence  of  a  unifying 
theme  may  make  it  difficult  to 

SPS  complains  this  year  of  their 
high  mortality  rate,  while  Meds 
bemoan  the  commercialization  of 
medical  knowledge  in  regard .  to 
the  many  books  and  films  about 
medicine.  U.C.  draws  to  mind  the 
lack  of  University  spirit,  and  Vic 
sighs  of  their  "removal''  from  the 

Home  Ec,  this  year  dedicated 
their  float  to  the  grads,  featuring 
"beefs"  over  the  years.  However, 
rumours  have  been  circulating 
that  the  currrent  feud  between 
Vic  and  SPS  may  be  continued  in 
the  form  of  attacks  on  each 
others'  floats. 

Anderson  condemned  any  such 
move,  "It's  unsportmanlike."  he 
said,  "it  will  take  all  the  fun  out 
of  the  parade". 

The  parade  leaves  Devonshire 
Place  at  10:30,  Saturday  morning, 
and  should  arrive  at  the  front 
campus  at  11:15  and  pass  the 
judges  stand  at  11:30,  following 

about  the  same  route  as  in  pre- 
vious years. 

Barring  any  incident,  the  par- 
ade should  be  interesting.  "It 
looks  darn  good",  says  Anderson, 
"lots  of  imagination  ....  the 
floats  are  good". 

S.  African 
Tribe  Conflict 
New  Problem 

The  conflict'  of  primitive  tri- 
balism with  western  culture  is 
a  major  problem  in  South 
Africa  today,  an  authority  on 
international  affairs  said  last 

There  is  economic  dependence 
between  the  two  groups  a  need 
for  a  settlement  between  the  two 
groups,  Dr.  Edgar  Mcfnnis,  pre- 
sident of  the  Canadian  Institute 
of  International  Affairs  told  the 
Modern  History  Club  last  night. 

Either  white  and  colored  people 
must  be  integrated  on  the  prin- 
ciple of  democratic  equality  or 
there  must  be  white  dominance, 
he  said.  This  is  the  only  other  way 
the  whites  can  survive  being  such 
a  small  minority. 

One  solution  mentioned  is  to 
separate  the  opposing  groups  into 
independ,  discriminatory  groups. 
This  would  remove  the  friction  of 
constant  contact  of  conflicting 
groups,  he  said.

Better  Movies;  Poorer  Publicity 

"Hollywood  is  by  no  means 
dying.  It  is  merely  undergoing 
pruning'  resulting  in  a  little  blood- 

This  was  Tely  film  critic 
Clyde  Gilmour's  answer  to  the 
question  "Is  Hollywood  Dying 
On  the  Vine?",  the  subject  of 
his  talk  in  Hart  House  Library 
last  night. 

He  said  that  the  movie  indus- 
try is  undergoing  many  benefi- 
cial changes  and  public  taste  is 
improving  with  this  trend.  Tele- 
vision, although  it  has  many 
merits,  has  taken  over  the  medi- 
ocrity once  exemplary  of  the 
movie  industry.  As  evidence  oi 
public  acceptance  of  more  intel- 
ligent    entertainment  Gilmour 

cited  My  Fair  Lady,  "the  finest 
musical  New  York  has  ever  seen 
and  also  the  most  financially 

The  biggest  stumbling  block 
in  educating  the  public  to  ap- 
preciate better  movies  is  publi- 
city which  has  "come  down  from 
the  peep  show  days  virtually 
unchanged."  "Through  the  movie 
husksters'  lurid  build-ups "  and 
'hyperthyroid  sincerity'  the  best 
pictures  are  smeared  and  dam- 
aged by'  the  very  ones  who  are 
trying  to  sell  it,"  he  said. 

When  questioned  on  other  as- 
pects of  the  movie  industry  Mr. 
Gilmour  said: 

"Tennessee  Williams  (writer 
of  Streetcar  Named  Desire,  Cat 

on  a  Hot  Tin  Roof)  is  a  vastly 
overrated,  overgrown  little  boy 
running  around  writing  forbid- 
den words  on  outhouse  walls." 

Elvis  Presley  and  Liberace  are 
"material  of  moronic  calibre," 
and  along  with' Mario  Lanza  ex- 
hibit "the  same  shameless, 
grotesque  overemphasis  of  phony, 
maudlin  emotionalism." 

"The  day  of  the  suburban 
theatre  is  doomed  unless  big 
pictures  are  shown  downtown 
and  in  the  suburbs  simultan- 

"Movie- malcing  is  a  bastard- 
ized institution  of  art  and  indus- 
try. It  reminds  me  of  Leonarda 
Da  Vinci  working  in  a  chain

United  Appeal  Gets  a  Bingo  Boost 
But  Backers  Say  "Where's  Crowd" 

Half  a  dozen  U.C.  girls  stood  on 
1he  front  campus  yesterday  noon 
and  vainly  implored  "thousands 
and  thousands  of  passing  students" 
to  play  bingo. 

They  received  blank  stare  after 
blank  stare,  but  finally  ended  up 
with  $40  to  show  for  a  number  of 
panda  bears,  record  albums  and 
delicatessen  products. 

"It  was  another  example  of  our 
TJ.C,  apathy."  said  Judy  Freedhoff, 

II  U.C.  who  helped  in  staging  the 
bingo,  first  one  of  its  kind  to  ap- 
pear on  the  campus. 

And  others  passing  by  didn't 
help  either,  according  to  Miss 
Freedhoff  who  said  engineers  re- 
fused to  come  in  and  play,  on  the 
grounds  that  it  was  a  University 
College  activity,  even  though  the 
proceeds  went  to  the  United  Ap- 

Even  students  of  the  college 
themselves  failed  to  answer  the

holding  a  nation-wide  search  for 
men  with  beards  three  months

This  tidy  sum  is  being  offered 
by  the  Ronson  Corporation  for 
the  privilege  of  shaving  the 
beards  of  men  selected  for  an

Thir  letter  refers  to  the  answer  of  the  University  College  Literary

tion  to  the  appeal  from  a  committee  of  V.ctor.a  University  st, 


a  mouth  for  the  sac 

Two  weeks  ago  we  ran  a  disgusted  front  page 
editorial  on  the  failure  of  our  Students'  Administrative 
Council  to  fulfill  its  obligations. 

We  were  either  very  wrong  of  very  right. 

Last  night's  meeting  was  a  handsome  example  of 
how  a  council  meeting  can  be  conducted. 

If  we  were  wrong,  we  apologize.  If  we  were 
right,  we  are  glad  there  has  been  a  change. 


In  an  informal  discussion  in  the  Varsity  office  the 
other  day,  someone  quoted  a  professional  journalist 
as  sneering  at  this  paper  for  its  "foolish  idealism." 

Before  we  reared  back  with  cries  of  "the  news- 
paperman's cynicism"  we  attempted  to  assess  the 
word-as  applied  to  The  Varsity-in  the  spirit  in  which 
it  was  intended.  The  gentleman  who  originated  the 
remark  is  a  senior  editor  of  one  of  our  country's  most 
respected  daily  papers.  He  knew,  theoretically,  more 
than  we  did  about  life  and  the  world  and  the  ether 
things  one  can  be  "idealistic"  about. 

And  he  is  right,  of  course.  We  are  idealistic.  Prob- 
ably foolishly  so. 

But  is  that  wrong?  Are  we  to  go  to  university,  to 
become  educated,  in  order  only  to  face  the  horrible  . 
reality  of  the  world.  If  at  the  university  age— be  it 
from  16  to  66— we  cannot  think  in  terms  of  an  ideal 
world,  when  can  we? 

Should  editorials  in  university  papers  be  confined 
to  suggesting  the  small  corrections  that  can  be  accom- 
plished within  our  short  tenure  as  students?  Should 
undergraduate  debate  topics  be  about  the  petty  diffi- 
culties that  clamp  down  imagination  at  all  levels  of 

Of  course  not.  The  university  by  definition  is  a 
world  of  ideas.  Ideas  are  not  born  picayune  and  prac- 
tical. They  are  conceived  in  magnificent  frenzy,  and 
die,  or  are  toned  down,  only  when  they  are  rubbed 
on  the  grindstone  of  reality. 

We  hope  the  university  will  always  be  idealistic. 
And  we  hope  the  pages  of  this  paper  can  reflect 
enough  of  that  idealism  that  newspapermen  every- 
where will  criticize  us  for  being  "foolishly  idealistic." 

the  right  to  culture 

Last  year  there  was  a  violent  issue  concerning  the 
forbidding  of  the  Hart  House  Orchestra  Associates  to 
conduct  Sunday  concerts.  From  all  colleges  and  facul- 
ties, students  arose  with  a  mightly  wail  against  such 

"We  must  be  allowed  our  right  to  culture,"  was  a 
common  cry.  And  they  bought  the  three-hundred 
memberships  the  associates  needed  to  keep  their  con- 
certs alive. 

This  year,  the  same  organization  has  been  con- 
ducting one  of  the  most  effective  publicity  campaigns 
this  campus  has  seen.  In  three  days,  they  have  sold 
sixty-five  tickets,  more  than  half  of  which  were  in  one 
college  (St.  Michael's). 

Apparently  good  music— for  it  is  good— is,  to  Tor- 
onto students,  the  same  as  cigarettes  frequently  are 
to  adolescents:  if  they  are  forbidden  to  enjoy  it,  they 
will  find  a  way. 

They  do  not  seem  to  realize  that  part  of  the  right 
to  enjoy  their  culture  consists  in(performing  the  func- 
tion of  supporting  it.

Dear  Sir: 

Your  "Letter  to  AVR"  should 
meet  with  much  agreement, 
even  on  this  sleepy  campus. 
Abnormal  psychology  itself  will 
have  considerable  difficulty 
explaining  why  a  show  known 
as  an  All  Varsity  Revue  should 
want  to  piddle  around  with 
such  a  soporific  bowlful  of  in- 
anity as  Finian's  Rainbow. 

Is  it  that  apart  from  Daffy- 
dil,  Dentantics  and  Skule  Nite, 
the  U.  of  T.  is  completely  de- 
void of  the  ability  to  produce 
anything  original  ?  Can  any  one 
group  of  people  claim  to  such 
a  degree  of  sterility?

"Do  not  stay  to  be  an  over-

However,  he  adds,  "But  I

who  does  this  work,  with  his

I  beg  to  take  issue  with  your 
article,  "Toronto  Terrible  as 
Old  Vic  Goes"  on  two  points  of 
reporting  accuracy. 

First,  on  the  basis  of -my  own 
conversation  with  my  guests 
from  The  Old  Vic,  I  cannot  con- 
cur with  the  adjective  "terrible" 
which  your  article  ascribes  to 

Secondly,  I  would  suggest 
that  quoting,  or  rather  mis-quot- 
ing, out  of  context  is  a  danger- 
ous practice.  My  own  remarks  on 
the-  qualities  of  Tambmiaine 
were  formed  as  a  rhetorical 
question,  delivered  in  a  whim- 
sical mood,  and  were  not  intend- 
ed as  a  citation  of  exemplary

We  the  undersigned  members

feel  need  to  aid  the  United  Ap-

Way  well  suited  to  our  singular 
capabilities.  We  therefore  invite 
the  readers  of  the  Varsity  :0 
participate  in  a  University  wide

feeling  that  several  thousands  of 
dollars  would  change  hands,  ten

It  is  with  a  great  deal  of  real 
joy  that  I  look  forward  to  read-

It  is  one  of  the  best  University 
Publications  among  students 
that  one  can  read. 

On  page  5  of  the  October  16th 
issue  in  the  article  entitled  Ro-

error  (unintentional  I  believe). 
"Negro"  was  spelt  with  a  small 
"n".  Please  advise  those  who  are 
responsible  for  the  proof  reading

Danish  Delight 

The  Royal  Danish  Ballet  opening  night  surpassed  expectation 
The  ensemble  work  was  flawless,  the  stars  corruscatlng 

Effortless  harmony  of  movement  is  perhaps  only  possible  for 
dancers  trained,  as  these  are,  from  childhood  in  the  same  fastidi 
„us  corps.  For  once,  too,  the  ballerinas  did  not  steal  every  se- 
quence. Their  partners  were  graced  with  handsome  stage  pre- 
sences vitalized  by  the  appearance  of  dancing  for  joy 
"  Galeotti's  170-year-old  "Of  the  Whims  of  Cupid"  with  its 
insinuating  choreographic  wit  comparable  to  the  best  of  its  18th 
Century  stage  counterparts  was  presented  to  its  best  advantage 
nv  these  dancers.  Their  convention  requires  a  highly  polished 
dramatic  flair  of  its  exponents.  Cupid's  blind  selectivity  always 
good  for  a  laugh,  was  the  gimmick. 

The  second  ballet  of  the  evening,  "La  Sonnambula,"  by  George 
Balanchine  (music  by  Rieti)  was  the  highlight  of  the  evening 
T„e  Courtesan  (Mona  Vangsaa),  Poet  (Henning  Kronstram) 
Sonnambula  (Margaret  Schanne)  triangle  formed  the  plot  com- 
plication. All  three  danced  with  inspiration.  Even  the  technique 
that  taught  the  slight  Sonnambula,  an  ethereal  dream  creature 
to  carry  the  dead  poet  from  the  stage  gave  less  cause  for  marvel 
than  did  the  preceding  Watteau-like  pas  de  deux.  Only  Alicia 
Markova  could  have  brought  similar  inbred  finesse  to  the  part. 
Mr.  Kronstram's  poetic  elegance  was  incomparable. 

Act  Three  of  "Napoli,"  "The  Fisherman  and  his  Bride",  con- 
cluded the  program  with  its  famous  Tarantella.  Solos  and  duets 
rose  to  a  crescendo  in  the  ensemble  work  and  the  spirit  of  the 
corps  perceptibly  rose  with  them.  No  matter  how  superbly  one 
pair  of  dancers  addressed  themselves  to  a  role,  their  successors 
were  equally  endowed.  Art  is  the  key,  athletic  splendour  the  pitch 
of  this  ballet  corps. 

The  Tuesday  evening  programme  opened  with  a  100th  anni- 
versary presentation  of  Bournonville's  Spanish-dance  ballet,  "La 
Ventana."  It  was  followed  by  "La  Sylphide"  which  is  not  to  be 
confused  with  the  more  recent  "Les  Sylphides."  Although  the 
white  magic  of  the  evening  was  Margarete  Schanne  (La  Sylphide) 
and  potent  magic  too,  Niels  Bjorn  Larsen,  an  appalingly  heinous 
old  crone,  cast  the  pall  of  black  magic  that  shrouded  the  de- 
nouement. Henning  Kronstram  was  non-pareil.  In  appearance  and 
gesture  he  evoked  the  strength  of  tender  passion  and  distraction 
at  his  loss. 

This  extraordinary  entertainment  concluded  with  "Dream 
Pictures,"  a  Harlequinade  in  which  Borge  Ralov  starred,  although 
far  from  unaccompanied  in  the  firmament.  His  brilliant  buffoon- 
eries revealed  a  very  witty  fellow.  Mona  Vangsaa,  a  buoyant 
Amelie  was  attended  by  Stanley  Williams,  Hans  Christian.  Kih- 
.slc-n  Ralov  was  a  delightful  Columbine. 

The  Old  Folks'  Polka  which  terminated  the, ballet,  like  "Of 
The  Whims  of  Cupid,"  was  as  clever  a  travesty  of  the  mannerisms 
of  old  age  as  any'  cultivated  by  Marcel  Marceau. 

Elise  Mangaard  (Wardrobe  mistress)  and  Aage  Betholtd 
(wardrobe  master)  deserve  a  bouquet  each  for  the  exquisite 
taste  displayed  in  costuming  the  Danish  Ballet.

Trinity  College  Dramatic  Society  will  present  as  its  major 
production  "The  Cocktail  Party"  by  T.  S.  Eloit,  February  20, 
21,  22  and  23.  Readings  will  be  held  on  Thursday  from  2  to 
6  p.m.  in  the  rec.  room  at  St.  Hilda's. 


Out  of  the  '20s,  with  its  coon- 
skin  coats,  bathtub  gin,  and  Lit- 
tle Caesars,  came  the  song-writ- 
ing team  of  DeSylva,  Brown  and 

In  the  era.  of  prohibition  and 
jazz,  these  boys  kept  the  world 
singing  and  dancing  to  such 
tunes  as  "Black  Bottom",  "Birth 
of  the  Blues",  "Button  Up  Your 
Overcoat".  "Good  News"  and 
other  sprightly  things.  The  20th 
Century  Fox  film,  "The  Best 
Things  In  Life  Are  Free",  brings 
back  a  flood  of  those  nostalgic 
numbers  and  even  throws  in  a 
somewhat  standard  plot  for  good 

The  picture  is  no  more  than  an 
enjoyable  musical  in  which  Gor- 
don MacRae,  Ernest  Borgnine, 
and  Dan  Dailey  impersonate  the 
song-writing  team  adequately. 
Sheree  North,  coming  a  long  way 
from  her  ephemeral  appearance 
with  Martin  and  Lewis,  gives  a 
first-class  performance  as  the 
girl  who  gets  silver  threads  a- 
mong  the  gold  waiting  for  Mac- 
Rae to  pop  the  question. 

Choreographer  Rod  Alexander 
<of  "Oklahoma!"  fame)  and  Dir- 
ector Michael  Curtiz  have  "Hol- 
lywoodized"  these  simple  moon- 
and-June  numbers  into  an  offer 
worthy  of  CinemaScope.  But  by 
far  the  most  impressive  offering 
is  "Birth  of  the  Blues"  (a  dreem 
ballet  in  which  i-Jacques  D'Am- 
boise  plays  a  prisoner  who 
breaks  out  of  jail  and  dances 
in  the  street  with  Sheree  North).

Fine  Five  G?clock 

For  many  years  on  Wednesdays,  students  hnve  been  accus- 
tomed to  slipping  upstairs  to  the  Music  Room  in  Hart  House  to 
collect  themselves  at  one  of  the  noon  or  five  o'clock  concerts 

How  refreshing  it  was  yesterday  to  forget  the  turmoHs  oi 
campus  life  and  listen  to  Claudette  Leblanc.  She  is  an  attractive 
young  singer  with  an  impish  smile,  with  perfect  poise  and  a 
pleasant  manner.  Not  only  is  she  a  delight  to  behold,  but  also 
to  hear. 

Her  programme  was  well  chosen  and  well  balanced,  also  just 
the  right  length.  The  first  three  songs  were  by  Gluclt  Scarmni 
and  Paisieilo,  The  Gluck  wi

made  it  difficult  for  the  audience  to  contain  its  enthusiasm. 

Debussy's  "Ariettes  Oubliees"  were  well  received,  the  moie 
joyful  songs  receiving  especially  good  treatment.  In  the  aria, 
O  mio  Babbino  Cara  from  Puccini's  «iaimi  Schlcchl,  Miss  Leblanc 
radiated  a  tremendous  warmth  which  completely  captured  the 

In  short,  Claudette  Leblanc  has  much  talent  and  she  has 
developed  it  along  good  lines.  Her  voice  is  rarely  constricted  ami 
has  a  pleasant  fullness  and  tone  that  should  stand  her  in  good 
stead  when  the  next  Toronto  Opera  Season  is  with  us,  in  which 
we  hope  to  hear  her. 

The  next  Wednesday  Five  O'clock  is  on  October  31st.  Ladies 
are  encouraged  to  attend.  Chris  WiIson. 

Plain  and  Fancy 

Paraskeva  Clark's  paintings  at  the  best  are  sprightly  and 
cheerful;  at  the  worst  they  are  junky,  confusing  or  just  badly 
painted,  like  "Algonquin  Morning",  which  holds  the  place  of 
honour  at  the  end  of  the  Hart  House  gallery  over  the  fireplace. 

There  are  too  many'  colours  in  Mis.  Clark's  pictures,  too  many 
irrevelant  details  and  too  many  conflicting  lines.  There  is  just 
too  much,  in  fact,  and  there  even  seem  to  be  too  many  paintings 
hung  in  the  gallery. 

Portraits  always  have  a  certain  obvious  enforced  unity.  Mrs. 
Clark's  portraits  are  more  pleasing  than  her  other  pictures. 

The  pictures  in  the  print  room  bear  some  superficial  resem- 
blances. There  is  nothing  startlingly  original  about  these  pictures; 
like  Paraskeva  Clark's  paintings,  they  are  representational,  quite 
detailed,  and  of  simple  subjects.  But  Sylvia  Mcintosh  is  an  artist 
and  a  very  fine  one.  Her  tree  stumps  and  harbours  are  given  an 
intense  and  dramatic  life  and  are  organized  into  marvellously 
unified  and  vigorous  compositions.  She  has  a  wonderful  sense  of 
the  power  of  lines  and  a  feeling  for  textures. 

In  comparison  with  Mrs.  Clark's  gaudy  show.  Sylvia  Mcin- 
tosh's prints  seem  few,  small  and  uncolourful.  There  was  not 
even  a  notice  indentifying  her  when  I  was  there.  Not  much  to 
recommend  them  except  that  they're  good.-

Skule  Again 

Covered  All  Over  With 

Engineers  rented  horseshoes 
over  the  front  of  Victoria  Col- 
lege late  last  night  and  left  a 
pile  of  horse  manure  to  show 
theirs  was  a  real  horse. 

The  horseshoe  tracks  led  up 
the  front  steps  of  the  main 
Vic  building  to  a  motorcycle  just 
inside  the  front  hall  of  the 

A  sign  on  the  door  said  "Lady 
Godiva  was  here,  no  men,  no 
beer.  The  Lady  is  gone,  but  not 
for  long.  Yea  Skule" 

Most  of  the  15  painters  were 
engineering  "reshmen. 

This  is  just  another  retalia- 
tion in  the  Vic-Skule  battle 
which  started  two  weeks  ago 
when  Vicmen  kidnapped  Engin- 
eering President  John  Ruble,  and 
held  him  for  20  hours. 

Before  they'  went  home,  the 
engineers    left    an  engineering 


flag—a  white  flag  with  SPS  on 
it— on  the  main  University  flag- 
pole east  of  the  SAC  building. 

No  Victoria  students  were 
awakened  by  the  noise.  The 
skulemen  sang  their  Lady  Godiva 

•  •  • 

nthem  all  the  way  to  the  center 
of  the  campus. 

The  engineers  told  a  Varsity 
reporter,  "Make  sure  you  say 
it  was  done  by  the  freshmen— all 
on  their  own." 

No  promises  of  retaliation  for 
this  particular  episode  have  been 
issued  by  Vic 

"Intellectual  Aristocrat"  Is 
Nothing  More  Than  Upstart 



"Anyone  who  claims  to  be  an 
intellectual  aristocrat  is  actually 
an  intellectual  upstart,"  said 
Liz  Wilson  (III  Trin)  in  a  co-ed 
debate  of  the  Trinity  College 
Literary  Institute  last  night. 
The  meeting  defeated  36-11  the 
resolution  that  the  purpose  of 
a  University  education  is  to 
create  an  intellectual  aristo- 
cracy. # 

To  progress  towards  creating 
an  intellectual  community,  all 
who  want  an  education  must 
have  the  opportunity  to  receive 
it,  Miss  Wilson  said. 

"A  group  of  people  pretending 
to  be  intellectual  aristocrats 
possess  nothing  but  superficial 
superiority,"  she  said. 

University's  main  purpose  is 
not  to  produce  a  'round  of 
drunks  and  procrastinators'  but 
rather  people  who  can  think 
honestly  and  constructively  for 
themselves,  first  government 
speaker  Neil  MacLean  said.  "A 
university  should  strive  to  pro- 
duce an  aristocracy  based  on. 
talent  and  virtue,"  he  said. 

Second  government  speaker 
Jeremy  Johnson  III  Trinity)  ad- 
vocated leadership  by  intellec- 
tuals, not  rule  by  them.  He  said 
such  an  aristocracy  determined 
by'  excellence  of  performance 
should  be  produced  in  universi- 
ties. Since  history  has  proven 
that  an  aristocrat  of  some  sort 
must  exist,  he  said,  it  is  best 

to  have  one  based  on  intelligence 
of  mind. 

An  intellectual  aristocracy 
cannot  be,  said  Nora  Foote, 
<  III  Trinity)  since  it  is  im- 
possible to  have  a  select  group 
of  university  -  educated  deep 
thinkers.  Intellectual  aristocracy 
destroys  the  idea  of  education 
altogether.  University  is  a 
'discipline  for  the  adventure  of 
life,"  Miss  Foote  said.

Intermeds  Lose 

Scoring  two  second  period  goals, 
the  Ryerson  Rams  knocked  over 
the  University  of  Toronto  Inter- 
mediates 2-0  in  Intercollegiate  soc- 
cer play  yesterday  afternoon.  The 
two  teams  battled  each  other  on

Although  the  play  was  even 
through  a  good  part  of  the  game, 
the  Intermediates  lacked  the  fin- 
ishing power  against  Ryerson.  The 
two  Ram  tallies  were  scored  in  the 
last  period  against  a  tiring  Baby

on  the  plane,  so  should  not  feel  the  effects  of  the  time  taken  to 
indulge  in  his  favourite  sport  on  such  a  complicated  basis. 

The  whole  move,  provided  Dave's  academic  successes  are  not

he  needs  the  extra  experience,  and  that  it  would  be  foolhardy  to 
have  him  sit  out  a  year,  they  could  very  well  be  expecting  him  to

Resting  on  the  desk  at  my  side  is  a  letter  from  a  reader  of 
the  Varsity.  I  must  confess  that  it  is  the  first  letter  that  I  have 
ever  received  in  connection  with  the  sports  pages,  and.  as  you 
might  guess,  it  is  in  accordance  with  most  letters  sent  to  my  dear 
pal  Peter  on  the  other  side  of  the  room.  It's  a  complaint. 

Not  a  very  serious  one.  mind  you.  but  nevertheless  a  complaint. 
It  seems  that  there  is  a  young  gentleman  Who  throws  the  javelin 
for  our  Intercollegiate  track  team.  That  man's  name  is  "Swinden," 
not  "Swindon."  Our  track  editor  has  been  making  the  error  in  his 
stories,  but  I'm  not  passing  the  buck.  It  Is  the  Editor's  job  to 
check  all  copy,  and  it  seems  that  we  haven't  been  doing  It  too 
well.  Apologies! 

It  is  the  last  sentence  in  this  epistle  which  catches  my  eye  at 
the  present  time,  however.  "I  suggest  that  John  Brooks' be  sus- 
pended for  three  weeks  so  that  he  can  learn  how  to  spell." 

If  our  writer,  whose  name  is  "truth  over  all"  (he  wrote  it  in 
Latin)  Mould  send  along  another  note  and  enclose  a  nomihable 
cheque,  I  would  gladly  say  "agreed"  and  take  the  closest  (flane  for 

I  suppose  he  can  afford  it.  too.  Down  in  the  left-hand  corner 
is  an  inscription,  and  I  quote:  "File  C.001"  Either  he  (or  maybe 
it's  a  she)  has  a  mechanical  secretary,  or  is  accustomed  to  sending 
letters  to  Editors. 

Speaking  In  all  seriousness,  though,  I  would  very  much  appre- 
ciate letters  to  the  Sports  Editor.  The  least  satisfaction  I  would 
get  would  be  that  someone  on  this  campus,  besides  Merle,  takes 
a  few  moments  to  read  page  seven.

Irish  Rock  And  Roll  UC  23  0 
Stanton  Grabs  Two  TD  Passes 

Harry  Wilson 

.  .  Gets  Chance  Saturday 

Sporting  a  good  defensive  team 
balanced  by  a  good  offensive  unit, 
St.  Mike's  football  chib  ripped 
through  University  College  to  the 
merry  tune  of  23-0  yesterday  in 
intramural  league  play. 

Ken  Stanton  was  the  individual 
scoring  star  with  two  touchdowns 
one  on  a  45-yard  pass  play. 

Irish  co-captain  Pete  Burns  got 
one  touchdown  while  Brian  An- 
derson collected  three  singles. 
Frank  Kielty  added  two  converts 
to  complete  the  rout, 

Anderson-started  off  both  teams' 
debuts  by  kicking  three  conse- 
cutive singles  via  the  rouge-route 
as  Irish  tack  lei's  swarmed  under 
his  kicks. 

Bad  Snap 

A  bad  snap  to  kicker  Sid  Wein- 
rlh  parked  St.  Mikes  on  the  UC 
20  yard  line.  On  the  last  play  of 
the  second  quarter  Kielty  pitched 
to  Stanton  standing  on  the  UC 

"  I     .  ■  -       '  til 


goal  line  for  the  first  major.  The 
convert  was  no  good 

Kielty  opened  the  second  half 
by  floating  a  45-yard  pass  to  Stan- 
ton, once  again  standing  on  the 
UC  goal-line.  Kielty  converted. 

In  the  last  quarter,  Peter  Burns 
took  over  the  starring  role  as  he 
personally  snared  two  UC  passes. 
He  captured  one  on  the  20-yard 
line.  Kielty,  almost  trapped  by 
Mike  Molot  and  Ray  Donn  be- 
hind the  line,  reared  back  and 
pitched  a  20-yard  strike  to  Burns 
in  the  end  zone.  Kielty  converted 
to  end  the  scoring. 

Burns  intercepted  another  pass 
late  in  the  game  and  raced  45 
yards  to  the  UC  19-yard  line.  The 
game  ended  as  a  pass  to  Knobby 
Walsh  in  the  end  zone  fell  be- 
yond his  reach. 

In  First  Alone 

Walsh  was  the  only  injury  of 
the  game — an  elbow  which  scrap- 
ed his  nose.  The  UC  player  in- 
volved promptly  apologized.  Dave 
Sutherland  and  John  Lambier 
shared  the  pivot  duties  but  on 
eight  passes  they  were  only  able 
to  connect  on  one  plus  two  to 
Irish  end  Pete  Burns.  Mike  Molot 
got  UC's  longest  ground  gain  with 
a  22-yard  sprint.  Bob  Dann  and 
Jimmy  Trenton  were  other  UC 
I  stars. 

For  the  Irish  Bob  Callahan, 
Jack  Fenn,  Mike  MacDonald  and 
Tom  McCormick  played  well.  Dan 
Regan  spelled  Kielty  well  at  quar- 

The  Irish,  by  virtue  of  their  win, 
took  sole  control  of  first  place  in 
Croup  One.  In  Spite  of  their  good 
showing  over  the  weak  sister  of 
the  league.  UC,  the  Irish  have  yet 
to  show  their  stuff  before  Vic- 
toria and  Senior  Skule.

A  motion  to  censure  Publicity 
Director  Walter  Bowen  highlight- 
ed an  otherwise  dull  meeting  oE 
Uie  University  College  Literary 
and  Athletic  Society. 

The  first  meeting  of  the  year 
•was  attended  by  only  about  twenty- 
five  students  and  executive  mem- 
■  h  is.  This  was  one  of  the  things 
that  prompted  the  censure  motion. 

One  unidentified  student  moved 
that  Bowen's  report  be  not  accept- 
ed because  he  considered  inade- 
quate notice  had  been  given  for 
important  UC  functions.  The  first 
notice  of  the  meeting,  he  said,  had 
appeared  in  The  Varsity  only  that 

A  member  of  the  Society  said 
that  notices  had  been  posted 
throughout  the  College.  Another 
participant  said  that  there  had 
been  no  word  on  the  Cornerstone 
Ball  until  a"  recent  story  in  The 
Vejsity.  The  dance  is  to  celebrate 
1flic  centenary  of  the  laying  of  the 
cornerstone  of  UC. 

Bowen  defended  himself  saying 
that  the  attendance  was  high  lor 
an  open  meeting.  He  was  support- 
ed by  a  member  of  the  UC  Gar- 
goyle who  said  that  the  dance  was 
announced  in  the  paper  several 
weeks  agq. 

The  report  was  approved  after 
several  other  speeches  and  the 
meeting  continued. 

In  the  opening  address  President 
Harry  Malcomson  said  that  the 

Lit.  would  again  try  to  meet  the 
traditional  needs  of  the  UC  men. 
Most  of  the  college  activities  will 
continue  as  usual,  although  the 
plan  of  Freshman  week  was  ex- 
tended to  a  weekend  in  the  resi- 

The  budget  for  this  year  was  set 
at  $595  by  treasurer  Eric  Reynolds. 
Biggest  expenditure  was  to  be  car- 
ried out  with  the  WUA,  including 
the  financing  of  the  Undergrad, 
the  Gargoyle,  the  Player's  Guild 
and  the  Freshman  Weekend. 




Bound  To  Chair  In  Room 

A  threat  by  the  Dean  o£  Wycliffe

Peter  Niblock  spent  most  of  tnc 
hours  tied  to  a  chair  in  a  resi- 
room  in  Trinity. 

Wednesday  morning,  a

"The  heretic",  as  Niblock  was 
called  by  his  Trinity  captors,  was 
in  good  spirits  early  last  night. 
His  guards  hinted  he  would  not  be 
feeling  so  happy  later  in  the  eve- 

"I  have  no  hard  feelings  as  yet, 
Niblock  said.  He  passed  his  time 

A  Trinity  resident  complained  tonight  of  unfair 
treatment.  He  said  Dean  Prior '  of  Wycliffe  con^ered 
it  a  collene  prank  when  a  Trinity  student  was  kid- 
Lived  bl  ole  of  his  students  and  left  to  walk  home

when  Trinity  returned  the  compliment.

Hie  Varsity  staifer,  a  Trinity 
student,  was  left  in  a  field  near

was  taken  to  a  back  road  two 
miles  southwest  of  Malton  Airpor^ 
and  left  there  with  three  apples,  a 
blanket,  and  his  socks.

placed  under  a  dumbwaiter  itt

could  be  a  more  fitting  ending  to  a 
perfect  day,"  he  said. 

The  Varsity  staffer  had  stopped 
shortly  after  midnight  Wednesday 
morning  to  copy  the  sign  Trinity 
had  placed  on  Wycliffe's  doorstep, 
The  sign  said  Wycliffe  was  a  'her- 
etical and  godless  institution,  un- 
catholic,  unorthodox,  unanglican, 
and  lacking  in  divinity." 

Two  Wycliffe  men  jumped  the 
Trinity  reporter.  Three  other  stu- 
dents from  Trinity  came  to  rescue 
him  and  chased  the  Wycliffe  stu- 
dents. The  first  brush  was  over, 
but  the  reporter  lost  his  shoes. 

Later,  the  staffer  was  recaptured 
and'  taken  into  Wycliffe.  "I  was 
just  trying  to  get  the  last  words  of 
that  sign,"  he  said  Wednesday. 

A  dozen  Wycliffe  students  sur- 
rounded him,  took  his  wallet  and 
personal  possessions,  and  put  him 
in  a  bare  room  while  they  debated 
what  to  do  with  him. 

He  escaped  onto  the  Wycliffe 
roof  through  the  window  of  the 
room,  but  couldn't  get  down. 

"It's  awful  high  up,"  he  said. 

His  captors  walked  round  Wy- 
cliffe searching  for  him  with  spot- 
lights, then  sent  an  experienced 
roof-climber  up  after  him.  He  was 
recaptured  as  he  got  down.

Michelle  To  Sell 
Sales  Will  Swell 

Michelle  Boudet  will  sell  tickets 
at  the  football  game.  At  half  time 
she  will  draw  one  ticket  from  a 
drum.  The  holder  gets  a  date  with 
her  Saturday  night. 

"Some  people  have  been  doubt- 
ing that  she  really  exists,"  Blue 
and  White  chairman  Brian  Ander- 
son said.  "On  Saturday  they'll  sure 
find  out  she  does." 

The  beautiful  French  starlet  will 
stand  in  a  booth  inside  the  student 
gate,  promoting  the  sale  of  the  25- 
cent  United  Appeal  tickets. 

They  will  also  be  available  at 
the  pep  rally  Friday  night. 

"The  sale  has  been  going  fairly 
well,  but  it  should  go  faster,"  one 
Blue  and  White  society  official 
commented.  "It  may  be  because  of 
the  rumour  that  Michelle  is  a  fig- 
ment of  someone's  imagination." 

•I  guess  there's  no  way  we  can 
squelch  that  rumour  before  she 
gets  here,  but  I  wish  there  were." 

Michelle  arrives  on  the  12:10 
Saturday  plane  from  Montreal 
where  she  has  been  staying  with 
friends.  After  her  Toronto  visit, 
she  is  on  her  way  to  Hollywood,  to 
take  up  her  contract  with  Univer- 
sal-International pictures, 

Michelle,  29-years-old,  is  an  ar- 
dent water  skier.  She  won  a  prize 
for  ornamental  skating  at  Rapalo, 
Italy,  two  years  ago.  Last  summer, 
she  was  chosen  outstanding  sup- 
porting actress  at  the  Cannes 
(France)  film  festival. 

The  holder  of  the  winning  ticket 
Saturday  will  take  the  five-foot- 
four-inch  starlet  to  dinner  and 
dancing— all  expenses  paid. 


i  Know  Michelle" 

Mr.  Batten,  an  ex-Editor  of  The  Varsity,  spent  one  summer 
touring  France.  This  is  the  story  of  one  incident  that  may  be 
significant  this  Saturday. 





Being  as  I  notice  the  omiiu

zon  while  under  the  weather, 
are  scurrying  harried  hordes 
of  clipboard  artists  who  look 
forward  to  nothing  better  than 
the  weekend  when  thev  are 
drinking  off  the  tension  and 
trouble  of  long  hours  of  sobre 
study.  It  comes  homo  to  me 
that  this  is  being  the  weekend 
of  the  homecoming  of  all  the 
fish  of  the  bygone  eras  who  in- 
vest their  futures  with  B^nny 
so  that  these  arc  also  being 
bygone  with  the  winds  of  or-

I've  met  Michelle  Boudet. 
At  one  of  those  typical  gallic 
affairs  where  distinguished  men 
with  pencil-line  moustaches  and 
enchanting  women  with  A-line 
figures  exchange  pleasantries 
over  Chablis  or  Cognac,  I  first 
saw  the  young  actress  who  is 
commg  to  Toronto  this  weekend. 

outstanding  in  such  a  group  be- 
"use  of  her  long  blond  hair  and 
eenerous  figure,  Michelle,  then  a 
sludent,  told  me  of  her  hopes  for 
the  future. 
"I  would  most  like  to  be  a  great 
-"ess,   she  said,  a  heavy  accent 
making  the  English  she  was  just

W.  A.  Kenyon.  assistant  curator 
of  ethnology  at  the  museum,  took 
on  the  task  of  tracing  the  origin 
and  age  of  the  bones.  He  enlisted 
the  aid  of  J.  Norman  Emerson, 
professor  of  anthropology  at  the 
university,  and  the  tremendous 
task  of  classifying  them  was  be-

"It  is  beginning  to  appear  to  us, 
members  that  the  Vic toria-S.P.S.  riy 

turn  for  the  worse.  When  rivalry  finds  an  outlet  in  destruc- 
tion and  defacement  of  property  rather  than  in  the  tighten- 
ing of  University  bonds,  then  the  time  has  come  for  all  Var- 
sity students  to  sit  back  and  assess  the  implications  of  the 
situation,  a  situation  which  has  suddenly  changed  from  one 
of  a  few  happy  larks  to  one  of  exacting  greater  redress  and 
further  stimulating  hard  feelings  on  all  sides. 

Four  days  ago  the  steps  and  a  tree  in  front  of  the  Engin- 
eering Building  were  painted — two  days  ago  the  front  steps 
of  Wymilwood  Union  were  similarly  daubed  with  paint.  In 
addition,  there  are  rumours  of  further  plots  of  wreaking 
violence  and  havoc  against  rival  faculties;  e.g.:  the  college 

These  affairs  may  bring  momentary  pleasure  to  the 
'hearts  of  their  perpetrators,  but  they  certainly  do  not  amuse 
the  general  public  or  the  staff  memebers  of  the  University. 

If  such  incidents  are  to  continue  in  the  future,  then 
nothing  but  disapproval  and/or  primitive  'action  from  the 
University  administration  can  be  expected.  Think  of  two 
years  ago!" 

Richard  Newman,  Vic  IV  John  Rumble,  S.PlS.  iV. 

dicated  a  woodland  tribe.  Since 
the  manner  of  burial  was  dis- 
tinctly Iroquois,  and  the  Iroquois 
are  an  agricultural  tribe  this  was 
a  sign  that  the  discovery  dated 
from  an  early  period. 

Soon  these  suspicions  were  ver- 
ified when  Mr.  Kenyon  discover- 
ed an  Indian  village  site  a  few 
miles  from  the  burying  ground. 
Analysis  of  pottery  pinned  the 
age  of  the  remains  as  about  1250, 
which  makes  the  discovery  unique 
as  being  the  earliest  in  the  Tor- 
onto area. 

Today  more  than  100  students  of 
this  university  will  travel  out  to 
Scarborough  for  a  three-day  an- 
nual "archaeological  dig",  to  ex- 
cavate the  village  area.  It  pro- 
mises to  be  the  most  unusual  dig 
in  many  years,  for  this  weekend 
Iroquois  Indians  from  Ontario. 
Quebec,  and  New  York  State  will 
gather  for  a  rare  Indian  ritual 
the  burial  feast. 

This  is  perhaps  the  first  time 
in  history  that  the  public  has 
been  allowed  to  witness,  and  even 
partake  in  the  ancient  ceremony, 
which  traditionally  takes  several 
weeks,  but  which,  in  a  bow  to 
modern  civilization,  the  Indians 
have  condensed  two-and-a-half 

Prof.  Emerson,  in  charge  of  the 
dig.  calls  the  venture  "an  out- 
standing example  of  cooperation 
between  the  Indians,  the  mun- 
icipal authorities,  and  the  scient- 
ists." Both  he  and  Mr.  Kenyon 
agreed  in  terming  the  discovery 
"exciting";  it  promises  to  advance 
available  knowledge  of  Ontario 
history  in  a  large  measure.  All  in 
all.  the  weekend  lookes  like  a  big

the  sponge  off  old  Benny  60 
that  they  have  a  cushion  on 
which  to  retire  when  bhey  lose 
their  bounce. 

I  ask  this  laddie  what  it  is 
he  does  on  campus  and  he  an- 
swers lightly  that  lie  is  only 
a  tourist  as  he  is  n  bberchecK- 
ing  around  the  place  on  hi3 
holidays.  Being  as  I  am  a 
sincerely  fellow  who  does  not 
mince  his  words  nor  his  oppor- 
tunities I  clap  my  friend  who 
is  called  Airfoam  Arnie,  on  the 
arm  and  offering  him  a  propo- 
sition of  mutual  p  ofifc  which 
comes  about  as  I  make  enough

So  it  is  coming  about  that 
Arnie  circulates  among  those 
older  fish  who  arc  returning 
for  the  Homecoming  and  are 
too  wise  to  bet  against  Benny 
so  that  they  follow  my  lead 
and  bet  my  way  which  makes 
it  difficult  to  lift  their  loot. 
Which  is  being  the  psycholo- 
gical moment  when  n'ld  Arnie 
hits  them  with  a  bad  marker 
and  draws  their  money  front 
their  withered  old  clutches  with 
honeyed  words  and  sticky  fin- 
gers as  they  think  they  are 
betting  with  Benny's  calls  but 
do  not  realise  that  these  are 
only  come-ons  for  fi  hi^s  which 
think  themselves  wise  and  only 
now  do  I  release  my  true  calls 
which  are  thusly.

At  the  end  o£  his  second  year. 
Chris  tok  oft  to  visit  an  uncle  in 
Belleville.  Ont.,  and  to  work  in  a 
Bn&ll  boatyard.  By  the  end  of  the 
summer,  he  had  become  so  acchm-

himself  in  second  year  Honour 
Philosophy  at  St.  Michael's. 

"Now."  Chris  admits,  "every- 
thing is  eclipsed  by  the  horrible 
challenge  of  trying  to  galvanize 
undergraduates  into  some  aware- 
ness of  the  existence  and  the  needs 
of  the  H.H.O.A." 

This  galvinization  has  included 
a  loud-speaking  tour  of  the  cam-

of  "canned  music— with  worse  to 

And  after  that?  "Well,  the  rest

THE  VARSITY,  Friday,  October  19th,  1956 

Chris  Wilson 

you've  probably  seen  Chris  Wil- 
*  n  lately.  He  may  have  been  bea- 
ming at  you  from  behind  a  large 
H  H  O.A.  sign  in  your  college  quad- 
rangle—or  bellowing  at  you,  in  a 
charming  English  accent,  from  the 
v-indow  0f  his  Morris  Minor.  Or 
perhaps  you'll  hear  (him  on  C.B.- 
C'S  "Let's  Find  Out",  discussing 
what  lies  behind  and  ahead  of  El- 
vis Presley. 

At  any  rate,  the  chances  are  that 
you  have  come  across  him.  For  the 

Later,  as  an  alumnus,  Chris  made 
a  triumphal  return  to  Ampleforth 
to  report  on  a  trip  he  made  by 
railway  from  London  to  Baghdad 

This  Homeric  episode  was  in- 
spired by  his  summer  job  as  a  dis- 
patdh  clerk  in  the  headquarters  of 
the  continental  department  of  the 
British  Railways.  For  months,  he 
handed  out  tickets  to  travellers  to 
the  Continent,  until  he  became  so 
steeped  in  timetables  and  so  fas- 

energetic  puckish  chairman  of  the 
Hart  House  Orchestra  Associates 
is  far  and  away  the  most  well-cir- 
culated man  on  the  campus. 

Chris  should  have  been  born  in 
Leeds,  some  twenty-four  years 
ago.  But  instead  he  was  rushed  to 
London  before  the  event  occured, 
because,  as  legend  has  it,  his 
grandmother  thought  it  was  smart- 
er to  be  born  in  London.  Then  he 
was  rushed  back  to  Yorkshire, 
where  he  remained  for  the  next 
fifteen  years. 

When  the  war  was  declared,  he 
was  packed  off  to  Ampleforth  Col- 
lege, a  boarding  sehol  run  by  the 
Benedictine  Monks.  "As  far  as  the 
sentiment  that  one's  school  days 
■  are  the  happiest,"  he  says,  "I  sub- 
scribe to  it  entirely.  And  I  still 
hold  a  tremendous  affection  for 

Thanks  to  his  schooling  he  owes 
several  of  his  peculiarities — name- 
ly music  and  railroads.  Chris  had 
always  prided  himself  on  his  heal- 
thy hatred  for  classical  music. 
"But  then  one  day,  in  the  midst  of 
tedious  lecture  on  music  appre- 
ciation, they  played  the  Peasants' 
Merrymaking  from  Beethoven's 
Pastoral  Symphony.  They  caught 
jne  with  my  defences  down—and 
I  was  converted.  I  have  become 
m«re  interested  and  involved  in 
music  ever  since." 
Another  inexplicable  thing  which 
doped  while  he  was  at  school 
his  tremendous  passion  for 
..way  trains-  One  of  his  main 
junctions  was  the  office  of  presi- 
ent  of  railway  society  of  the  col- 
ege;  and  he  set  an  unassailable 
speed  record  when,  on  a  pedal  bi- 
tycle,  he  raced  the  local  train  into 
wn— and  beat  it. 

cinated  with  the  idea  that  he  de- 
cided to  go  on  a  big  trip  himself. 

"I  saved  up  money  from  my  job, 
and  passed  the  hat  around  the  fa- 

mily," Chris  explained.  "Fortun 
ately,  it  coincided  with  my  birth- 
day. When  I  had  saved  a  sufficient 
amount,  I  blew  it  all  on  a  third- 
class  ticket  to  Baghdad." 

For  one  who  had  lived  by  time- 
table, the  amazing  thing  to  dis- 
cover was  that  "the  train  really 
was  there,  you  know."  Apart  from 
an  unpleasant  brush  with  the  cus- 
toms, during  which  Chris  discover- 
ed tha.t  the  price  of  beer  in  Bul- 
garia is  $2.00  a  bottle,  it  was  a 
"magnificent  venture." 

"And,''  Chris  added,  "even  jf  I 
have  never  recovered  financially,  I 
still  think  it  is  the  most  worth- 
while thing  I  have  done  in  my 

As  soon  as  he  finished  at  Ample- 
forth, Chris  was  snatched  up  into 
the  ranks  of  the  Royal  Engineers, 
to  serve  two  years  of  compulsory 
military  service.  "It  soon  transpir- 
ed that  I  was  not  an  engineer," 
says  Chris.  "All  my  bridges  had  a 
sag  in  the  middle." 

After  two  years  of  his  material 
duties  at  "playing  soldier",  Chris 
found  himself  faced  with  the  inev- 
itable problem:  what  to  do?  He 
was  persuaded  by  his  family  to  go 
to  Trinity  College,  Cambridge,  to 
study  law— "which  I  found  tedi- 

The  tedium  was  soon  relieved 
by  the  whirl  of  extra-curricular 
activity,  with  "lots  of  concerts,  and 
coffee  up  to  sixteen  cups  a  day." 
Among  these  activities  were  run- 
ning, music,  amateur  theatricals, 
and  social  service — which  consist- 
ed of  "weekend  seminars  at  re- 
form schools  for  juvenile  delinqu- 
ents, plugging  the  inevitable  good 
music  and  the  trip  to  Baghdad."

and  old  ladies 



There  are  as  many  types  of  letters  that  cross  an 
editor's  desk  as  there  are  different  kinds  of  people  in 

the  world.  ,       .  r. 

There  are  the  cagey  ones  that  you  a  confi- 
dential nudge  about  the  inside  news;  and  the  |o!ly 
ones  that  laugh  with  you  at  everyone  else  s  folly;  and 
pompous  ones  with  ominous  over-tones  (Not  tor  re- 
lease until  July  29);  and  angry  ones  and  crack-pot 
schemes,  and  sober  reflections  and  dewy-eyed 
dreams.  „ 

But,  to  us,  none  is  more  annoying  than  the  you- 
owe-us-some-publicity  -  so-you'd-blinking-well-befter- 
give-it-to-us"  attitude. 

"This  book  is  sent  to  you  for  review  in  your 
paper,  and  we  should  like  to  receive  a  copy  of 
the  issue  in  which  you  review  it." 
Old  ladies  are  frequently  the  same.  Most  men 
will  give  up  their  street-car  seats,  or  help  the  dear 
creatures  across  the  street.  But  too  often  they  demand 

Or  women  shoppers!  Elbowing  and  pushing  poor 
males  out  of  their  way  with  all  the  strength  and  style 
of  a  Green  Bay  Packer  fullback. 

And  there  are  countless  more  examples  of  people 
who  demand  what  would  freely  be  given  to  them 
like  Caesar  collecting  his  due.  Men  who  snarl  at  wait- 
ers, bark  at  taxi-drivers,  complain  about  bus-service.

This  is  a  letter  written  as  a 
result  of,  and  a  compliment  to, 
the  one  your  paper  carried  yes- 
terday and  signed  "All  Chem. 
Eng.  6TO." 

While  I  disagree  with  your 
other  correspondent  s  choice  of 
vocabulary,  I  must  whole-heart- 
edly concur  with  his  arguments. 

Your  paper,  perfectly  fair  in 
most  respects,  indeed  does  seem 
to  devote  excessive  space  to  SPS, 
whereas  in  reality  engineers  are 
basically  the  same  type  of  people 
as  everyone  else. 

For  example,  if  it  be  foolishness 
for  SPS  to  sing  ''unusual"  songs, 
how  is  it  indeed  more  foolish  . 
than  for  the_Vic  girls  to  paint 
rings  in  the "  tree  in  front  of 
Skule'.'  If  it  is  idiocy  for  SPS  to 
paint  horseshoes  in  front  of  Vie, 
how  is  it  any  more  so  than  the 
kidnapping  of  John  Rumble,  and 
his  later  humiliation  before  a 
good  part  of  the  whole  univer- 
sity? Yet,  the  former  article 
carried  the  caption  "Skule  again  ' 
(one  can  almost  feel  the  scorn) 
while  the  articles  on  the  latter 
•  considered  the  cruel  prank  to 
be  delightful  little  joke.  If  it  is  - 
puerile  for  the  engineers  to  boast 
of,  their  "fabulous  cannon",  how 
is  it  more  so  than  for  Meds  to 
try  to  steal  it? 

The  evident  "holier  than  thou" 
attitude  makes  a  farce  of  ac- 
curate reporting.  The  engineers 
only  try  to  relax  after  one  of 
the  longest  schedules  on  campus. 
Why  always  "try  to  humiliate 
them"  (in  Vic's  own  words)? 
And  please,  stop  blaming  the 
engineers  as  a  whole,  for  the 
pranks  of  freshmen. 

You  complain  of  the  engineers' 
"we'll  beat  the  whole  bunch" 
attitude  of  school  spirit,  and  yet 
force  them  into  that  attitude  by 
your  own  banding  against  them. 

Come  now  —  the  engineers 
have  a  drinking  song  —  who 
hasn't?  The  engineers  chase  girls 
—  what  boy  doesn't?  Unlike 
pranks  of  other  coleges,  how- 

ever. SPS  pranks  are  never  con- 
ceived to  purposely  hurt  or  hu- 
miliate anyone.  Why  not  giv^ 
us  a  chance? 

P.S.  My  compliments  on  your 
carioon  "you  knew  how  these 
things  start  .  .  ."  It  was  excel-

The  Varsity  yesterday  carried  a  report  on  the  first 
Open  Meeting  of  the  UC  Lit.  This  story  did  not  make  any 
attempt  to  portray  the  meeting  as  it  occurred  but  seemed 
simply  an  effort  to  embarass  a  single  individual.  This  was 
clone  by  devoting  almost  the  entire  body  of  the  story  to  al- 
leged misdoing  of  the  executive  member.  The  headline  for, 
example  stated  that  the  individual  had  been  censured; 
which  is  simply  untrue. 

But  this  is  not  why  I  am  writing;  I  will  readily  admit 
the  right  of  The  Varsity  to  -write  a  story  from  almost  any 
point  of  view  they  see  fit  and  of  course  mistakes  may  eas- 
ily be  made.  What  I  do  take  offense  at  though,  is  the  ob- 
scene personal  inuendo  contained  in  the  headline.  It  con- 
travenes every  canon  of  good  taste  and  dignity.  It  further 
smacks  of  the  Grade  3,  can-house  humour  that  The  Varsity 
indulged  in  on  occasion  last  year  and  of  which  most  under- 
graduates hoped  they  had  seen  the  last.  I  also  take  more 
particular  exception  since  I  am  led  to  believe  this  particu- 
lar act  of  childishness  can  be  attributed  to  the  Editor. 

The  members  of  any  executive  must  be  prepared  to  ac- 
cept criticism  when  they  accept  any  responsible  office;  but 
under  no  circumstances  are  they  obligated  to  stand  for 
this  type  of  cheap  abuse. 

I  believe  an  apology  is  in  order.  -  M 

President,  UC  Lit. 


Mr.  Malcolmson  is  wrong. 

Two  apologies  are  in  order:  one  from  me  to  Mr.  Bowel- 
The  headline— which,  contrary  to  Mr.  Malcolmson's  l»'fSI' 
dential  opinion,  I  neither  wrote  nor  dictated — was  hide8 
misleading.  The  motion  of  censure,  while  it  was  debate 
long  and  violently,  was  not  passed.      '  . 

The  second  apology  in  order  is  from  Mr.  Malcolmson^ 
The  Varsity  and  to  me.  "Obscenity"  is  a  serious  charge-^ 
a  newspaper  may  be  prosecuted  under  the  Criminal  L 
of  Canada  for  its  practice.  "Every  canon  of  good  taste*' 
dignity"  is  •  really  quite  a  wide  field  to  contravene  M 
three-word  headline.  .  ^j,. 

"Almost  the  entire  body  of  the  story",  in  spite  of  -  J 
Malcolmson's  analysis,  was  not  devoted  to.  Mr.  BoW«  ^ 
"misdoings".  In  fact,  of  53  type-lines,  18  were  devote  , 
the  motion  of  censure,  19  to  Mr.  Bowen's  and  his  fn"1^ 
quite  reasonable  defence,  and  1G  to  other,  more  boring 

At  no  time  in  his  angry  (Mr.  Malcolmson's  word)  'e  « 
does  the  president  of  the  Lit.  accuse  tfie  reporter  who  'M'i)f 
the  story  (John  Gray,  who  spoke  at  the  meeting  in  t**  u 
of  Bowen)  of  misquotation  or  any  of  the  other  \vo>- 
which  a  reporter  may  twist  the  news.  The  story  v:t~'  ii- 
my  opinion,  a  fair  representation  of  a  rather  trivial  nl 

in*-  '  ...  nea^ 

H.  s  sole  complaint  seems  to  be  a  badly-written 

line.  For  that,  as  editor  of  The  Varsity,  I  am  sorry-  ^ 

I,  would  appreciate  the  same  action  from  Mr.  ^    ,.,  ,r-

Canada  Painters 

There  are  nineteen  of  J.  S.  MacLean's  famous  paintings  now 
in  Vic's  Alumni  Hall.  Many  of  the  pictures  were  moved  to  Vic 
from  the  last  Hart  House  exhibit;  all  of  the  pictures  originally 
hung  at  Canada  Packers.  During  his  life  the  late  Mr.  McLean 
bought  Canadian  art  with  a  taste,  sometimes  hesitant  but  almost 
always  good.  His  three  hundred  paintings  were  part  of  his  daily 
life;  they  hung  both  in  his  home  and  his  place  of  business. 

The  Canada  Packers  paintings  are  not  representative  of 
MacLean's  whole  collection,  says  the  Vic  Art  Committee.  The 
show  consists  almost  entirely  of  representational  paintings  by 
the  "old  guard"  of  Canadian  art.  Jackson,  Carr,  Milne  are  the 
best  known  artists  exhibited.  MacLean  also  had  many  paintings 
by  more  recent  artists.  These  will  remain  with  his  family.  This 
may  account  for  the  overall  unexciting  appearance  of  the  ex- 
hibit. Some  of  the  individual  pictures  are  well  worth  attention 
though,  in  particular  a  late  painting  by  Emily  Can-,  a  grand 
vibrant  "sky-scape"  and  a  luminous  little  oil  by  Henri  Masson.  '

ovation  at  Massey  Hall  last  night. 

Karajan  is  the  showman  su- 
perb, as  sleek  and  glossy  as  in 
his  music-making.  Mozart's  Haff- 
ner  Symphony  was  given  a  lux- 
urious, if  illegitimate,  perform- 
ance. The  tempi  were  extra- 
ordinary; the  andante  allegro  — 
the  minuette,  trooppo  andante. 
In  fact,  this  type  of  stylish 
Mozart  playing  seems  to  be  a 
fetish  of  the  German  orchestras 
and  great  maestros.  Mozart  did 
not .  write  to  display  plush 
opulence,  but  to  express  the  re- 
finement of  his  age.  This  was 
lacking  in  a  performance  in 
which  the  sforzando  were  slur- 
red to  a  degree  that  was  accen- 
.  trie. 

This  same  approach  was,  how- 
ever, legitimate  with  Don  Juan. 
Richard  Strauss's  sensuous  tone 
poem  was  given  all  the  ardour 
and  drama  that  it  demands.  The 
opening  bars  gripped  the 
audience  and  the  hall  was  filled 
with  a  richness  of  sound  that  we 
will  probably  not  hear  until 
another  orchestra  visits  the  city.

On  the  Hearth 


The  Grasshopper  at4  the 
Odeon  -  Christie  captures  the 
humorous  warm  humanity  of 
its  Chekov  provenance.  It  is 
a  tragedy  of  character.  The 
heroine^  indulges  her  insatiable 
desire  to  possess  the  uncommon, 
the  remarkable,  and  the  great, 
at  the  expense  of  her  husband 
who  is  all  of  these  things.  This 
failure  of  imagination  makes 
her  a  more  sordid  figure  than 
Madame  Bovary.  Olga  does  not 
wmch  care  for  art,  but  she  does 
like  artists!  Her  talent  is  for 
the  inconsequential.  But  unlike 
Congreve's  Mirabelle,  she  is 
not  endowed  with  much  capa- 

city    for    mental  fireworks. 

Olga's  lover  confides  to  her 
that  the  past  is  trivial,  the 
future  a  blank.  This  is  to  carry 
more  coals  to  Newcastle  than 
anybody.  Olga  and  her  husband 
do  research  on  ausculation  of 
one  kind  and  another.  He  does 
not  spare  himself  and  she  does 
not  spare  him.  This  is  a  dis- 
armingly  magnanimous  Dy- 
mov.  His  charmingly  diffident 
friends  are  riotously  ineffectual 
in  comparison  with  Olga's  who 
are  as  parasitical  as  Penelope's 
suitors.  The  quality  of  Dymov's 
suffering  transcends  his  predi- 
cament in  his  recognition  that 

personal  happiness  is  a  false 
goal.  His  faith  is  in  something 
more  rational,  impersonal.  This 
and  his  humanity  is  his  great- 

'The  characteristically  Mod- 
ern Russian  film-pace  is  leis- 
urely and  unambitious  about 
achieving  a  third  dimension. 
Consequently  the  close-ups  are 
thrown  into  relief.  The  techni- 
colour  is  typically  mellow  and 

Penny  Morgenstern. 

Here  the  orchestra  demonstrated 
its  proficiency,  technical  ability, 
and  feeling  for  their  music. 
Goaded  on  by  the  conductor, 
they  produced  climax  after  cli- 
max which  faded  into  a  final  . 
tremulendo,  to  leave  the  house 
much  as  Don  Juan  must  have 
felt  at  (he  end  of  his  orgies. 

Beethoven's  Eroica  Symphony 
was  as  splendid.  There  was  none 
of  the  wobbly  warbling,  strident 
scraping  or  hesitant  pace  that 

dynamism.  The  funeral  march 
we  are  accustomed  to.  From  the 
opening  chords  the  whole  music 
surged  forward  with  restless 
was  at  once  elegiac  and  grue- 

some, coloured  with  a  reward- 
ing attention  to  detail  climax 
was  reached  and  its  sobbing 
aftermath  completely  satisfac- 
tory. The  rubato  of  the  horns 
in  the  scherzo  and  trio  em- 
phasized its  witty  treatment. 

The  orchestra  is  entirely  rhale, 
even  the  harpist.  In  the  Mozart 
the  full  string  complement  was 
employed.  The  Strauss  required 
over  ninety  players.  In  the  Bee- 
thoven the  brass  and  woodwind. 
Pans  each  had  their  full  com- 
plement of  four  players.  It  is 
gratifying  when  a  large  symph- 
ony orchestra  tours  as  a  fully 
body  and  does  not  try  to  cut  its 
costs  at  the  expense  of  its  or- 
chestral sound.  We  might,  how- 
ever, question  the  choice  of  con- 
ductors, primarily  because  we 
have  heard  other  combinations 
on  recordings.  Karajan  is  invar- 
iably reliable  in  interpretation 
but  Fricsay  and  Markevitch  ha\e 
produced  performances  as  dis- 
tinctive and  individual.  There 
will  always  be  disappointment 
in  the  price  and  programming 
of  concerts  presented  by  visit- 
ing orchestras.  In  spite  of  private 
opinions,  we  would  say  that  once 
we  had  heard  the  music  and  the 
way  in  which  it  was  performed 
we  were  completely  satisfied 
excepting  the  reservations  about 
the  Mozart. 

Chris  Wilson 


Almost  everyone  has,  at  some  time  or  other  been  forced  to 
sit  through  a  program  of  intolerable  shorts  in  order  to  watch 
a  good  movie.' A  horrible  recent  example  of  this  is  the  boring, 
badly-made,  overlong  travelogue  called  "Quest  for  the  Lost  City" 
that  was  placed  with  "Citi2en  Kane." 

Why  do  the  managers  of  our  theatres  do  things  like  this 
to  the  poor,  long-suffering  audience?  Even  the  shorts  with  "La 
Strada"  were  mediocre.  In  the  large  downtown  theatres  one 
seems  doomed  to  a  diet  of  hackneyed  cartoons,  sports  featurett* 
newsreels  and  other  assorted  mediocrities.  As  Clyde  Gilvnour 
said  in  Hart  House  the  other  night,  most  of  these  films  see  -i 
carefully'  designed  to  bore  the  audience,  and  the  audience  usually 
expects  to  be  bored. 

It  may  therefore  come  as  a  surprise 
there  are  good  shorts  in  existence.  Our  owr 
has  made  many— Norman  McLaren's  delig 
example.  Countries  such  as  England  have 
tion  in  the  documentary  field.  Even  in  the  United  States,  some 
film  makers  have  been  able  to  escape  far  enough  from  Hollywood 
to  make  such  impressive  films  as  "Time  out  of  War"  (said  by 
some  critics  to  be  the  finest  war  film  ever  made.) 

We  seem  to  see  very  few  of  these  in  Toronto.  Reading  about 
them  in  the  New  York  Times  or  one  of  the  English  papers  is  a 
frustrating  substitute.  On  the  rare  occasions  that  one  slips  In 
las  if  by  mistake)  it  is  often  badly  programmed.  For  example. 
"The  Bespoke  Overcoat."  a  haunting  adaption  of  Gogol's  short 
story,  set  in  London's  Jewish  section,  was  put  with  one  of  the 
worst  English  films  of  the  year. 

It  is  only  fair  to  say  that  some  exhibitors,  especially  the 
Odeon  chain,  pursue  an  enlightened  programming  policy.  But 
the  general  situation  is  extremely  depressing. 

From  the  crowds  that  have  flocked  to  films  like  "La  Strada" 
and  "Citizen  Kane,"  it  would  seem  that  a  new  audience  ha.s 
sprung  up  which  does  not  see  a  film  for  mere  escapist  purposes. 
Surely  this  audience  would  appreciate  shorts  of  the  same  high 
quality.  Ouy  Groen.
