Council Seeks Ostrom Plan
i
To Aid In Athletic Crisis
©nttaaru
It is with but very little regret that we report
the passing of one that many among us had grown
to regard as an old and indispensible friend. m
His  name,   though  he   was   called   many   other
things, was Athletic Lethargy.
He had many detractors in his day, but even his
most violent antagonists will readily admit that hi*
influence upon the student body was just as great as
it was, to them at least, deplorable.
He never joined the Thunderbird Football team.
It was said that neither players nor coaches wanted
to sign up such a man. But until the time of his not
untimely death last Saturday, he attended every football game, filling many students with his spirit, which
they later regarded as their own. ,
In any honest account of his career it must also be
mentioned that he maimed the Mamooks, kicked the
Kickapoo's fend battled many another booster.
His passing will be mourned by those few who are
most likely to carry on his work
Surviving are a few loyal friends (who, incidently,
were all rejected as unfit to help the current Red
Cross blood drive,) and a brother, Apathy in Student
Government Affairs; all of UBC.

CHALLENGE   will  lie  the  topic  al
"A good deal ot confusion has
arisen from people going off at a
tangent," Charles Marshall sold today, "and the results of such action can be very detrimental to the
cause which certain Student Councillors are trying to promote.
"If a change ls desired in the
athletic setup," he said, "IT Is up
to the representative of the Men's
Athletic Directorate, Brock Ostrum,
to lay the foundations for that
change.
Marshall pointed out that this
enthusiasm was a good thing,
"but," he said, "Its long-run efforts
might he detrimental."
He asked that students, hold their
enthusiasm until the plan now
being drawn up ls submitted.
"Then,' he said, "we wish you to
give it your wholehearted Support.',
"At this time" he said, "Council
wants students to sit back and let
those in positions ot authority do
something about the situation, and
then report to you,"
He pointed out that "something
very concrete Is being done, but It
Is important that student* control
their spirit If the best results are
to be obtnined."
Blood Clinic
On Campus
Again Today
Red Cross Blood Donor's Clinic
resumes operations at UBC today
to obtain 1,068 pints of blood the
remainder of its 15,000 pint quota.
Clinic will remain on the campus In the Armory until Friday.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
In two days of donating last
week, students gave 432 pints of
blood to the mobile unit.
Despite their boasting, Engineers
are still lagging .behind Artsmen
by more than 50 pints of blood.
Engineers had hoasted they would
out-donate all other faculties.
No breakdown ot faculty figures have been given by Red
Cross   officials.
However, one official said re
sponse so far had been good and
tlfey expect to meet their quota.
Engineers • Frosh basketball
game today at 12:30 p.m. will be
the scene of promotional stunts
to increase donations.
"prepare a report embodying assistance to athletics and such report he submitted to a special
general AMS meeting to be held
on November 2, 1950 at 12:30
p.m."
FOR MONDAY MEETING
Ostrom will work on his report
immediately In able to bring his
recommendations before Council in
their next regular meeting Monday October 23.
Proposed plan will probably
take on two aspects; to improve
athletic team standards and. to
promote student spirit toward
atretics. *
Council expressed hope that
Ostrom would bring up a plan
that would ease the critical sport
situation.
Voiced opinion of PRO Charlie
Marshall was that "Brock has been
working on just such a plan for
months. If he can't devise one to
work, then nobody can."
MORE FACTORS
Some other factors that may be
asked for in the brief now being j
prepared are:
1. Rescheduling of athlete's time
tables so that they have afternoons
free to practice. Such a u**ggw
has been mooted for years by :WssW^
coaches.
2. Faculty approval of active
participation by UBC, in Inter-col-
leglate athletics.
Crisis in UBC athletics was precipitated last Thursday with a
press release from the graduate
manage/ of athletics, Ole Bakken.
"The situation in football at the]
University of British Columbia,"
the release said, "is critical. Player
.turnouts have failed to live up to
expectation, which means that the
football coaches have been, and
are. unable to field a team which
has the required depth ln numbers.
UBC Spirit
Shown At
Grid Game
Chanting Student!
Demand Athletic
Aid from Osborne
Confidence in football
coaches and UBCs ability to
participate in inter-collegiate
athletics was demonstrated by
1500 shouting, chanting students Saturday afternoon in a
surprise finale to one of the
worst defeats the Thunderbirds
ever suffered on the football
field.
As soon as the Thunderbird-
Western Washington game was
aver, with UBC on the short end of
n 47-7 score, fans rushed from
bleacher seats on the last side of
the stadium and carried every
available player from the field on
their shoulders.
08IORNE  TALKS
Then they ranged themselves before the grand|tand and chanted
*We want Osborne."
The. director of UBC's physical
ucatlon    department    took   the
-, «.»»-,is,-- s-„. . *. , .,„      „,
Irtflte at the public address booth
artd told students, "The main res-
potliWHty is not with Dr. MacKenzie, the deans or the faculty,
but with the enthusiasm ofjthe students themselves."
At Uils point students took up
another chant: "We Want Scholarships." ,
COUNCIL   BEHIND  THEM
Charles Marshall, public relation officer for student Council,
took the mike and said: "You want
scholarships—we'll help you get
them." He told them council was
firmly behind student opinion.
Marshall said a special general
AMS meeting would probably be
called soon to decide "once and for
nil, If students want lnter-collegl-
ate football at UBC. When we call
DEFINITE  ACTION
"For this reason, definite action
must be taken to attempt to increase   player   turnout   <n   future f V0" out-" he sald> "tl"'n °ut- Coun"
years, or as an alternative, football
must be dropped from the athletic
program at UBC."
Decision as to whether UB£
would continue as pu active participant in Inter-collegiate athletics
must be made before November 24,
when officials of the Evergreen
conference nleet to discuss schedules for the coming your.

cil cannot do this alone."
STUDENTS DEMAND BURKE
The third chant students shouted was: "We Want Burke." When
the Thunderbird coach took the
mike lie tore out a headline from
it daily paper reading: "UBC Faces
End of College Football."
"I guess you've all seen this
headline," he said. "If you fellows
keep this spirit up, this Is what
will happen,'—and he- tore the
newspaper page In half.

Burke Got An Answer
Critic On The Hearth
No single man on the campus has ever
stirred up such a demonstration of the rah-
rah, coUege variety, as dicl Orville Burke
when ho.let loose his pent-up anger and told
off 2000 snickering students at Friday's pep
meet.
If we hadn't seen the resulting demonstration during and after Saturday's game, we
would have said that such antics belong
strictly on Hollywood celluloid, with Donald
O'Connor leading the cheers and. Charles
Coburn handling the rebuttle on the public
address system.
But the fact is that Burke called for a
student answer on the question of collegiate
football, and students gave him that answer
in no indefinite terms.
"Students," Burke said, "must make up
their minds whether or not they want college
football."
Well, students showed on Saturday that
they had already made up their minds: They
left no doubt that they not only want col-
lege football, but they also .want a team that
has at least a 50-50 chance of winning games
in whatever league it happens to enter.
Students want that league, too, to be on
Evergreen Conference'level or better.
It is many months now since The Ubyssey first demanded a revamping of our athletic system. Last year The Ubyssey pursued
the subject in a series of editorials entitled
"Time for Some Change."
At last the student body, and even the
r.dministration (though, how grudgingly, it
is hard to say) have at last, also come around
to realize that it is, indeed, time for some
change.
It will be time enough, though, to argue the
question of out-and-out athletic scholarships
after, the more important primary steps Saturday when they showed they, are behind
collegiate football 100 percent.
Now we toss the ball to'the administration, which, both as a separate entity and
through the Men's Athelite Directorate must
give the go-ahead to a sensible scheme that
will positively encourage better football at
UBC.
The administration has merely tolerated
football long enough. It's time it made a contribution to the sport by devising and supporting such a scheme.
Co-ordinator Jim Midwinter is in the
soup again.
His sin this time is almost unique in the
annals of the Alma Mater Society. It is making money.
Now making* money, unless it is done on
a basement printing press, is not normally
regarded as sinful. But this time the money
was made at the expense of the freshman
slaas.
Mr. Midwinter emerged at the end of
orientation week with a fat $450 profit.
Doubtless Honest John McKinnon is quite
happy. But the fact remains that orientation
week was a dismal flop. It fell like a Spanish
omlette in an icebox.
If Mr. Midwinter has spent the money on
bolstering the week, much of the current
freshman apathy might well have been averted.
We say might because money is not the
only factor in such a program- But some
well-timed public blallyboo which could have
been arranged for a few more dollars would
quite probably ha've had an appreciable effect.
The days of budget-happy Paul Plant
and austerity are, fortunately, nearing their
end. The situation is not nearly so tight as
it was in the past two years. ,
Dut even the tight-fisted Paul didn't
scrimp on orientation expenses.
We suggest that Mr. Midwinter re-organize his philosophy of co-ordination.
The Bird Cage
Stunned into shocked silence by the
strangeness of university life, I have been
inarticulate for two weeks.
Now, for the benefit of freshmen, I feel
obligated to publish my "Dictionary of^Sordid
Details About UBC." Contained in this vol-
ume will be "Queer Clubs," "Campus Institutions" and "Suggested Freshman^ Courses"
compiled by one who knows less about it than
you do.
•
Queer Clubs Explained
NFCUS-Nationwide Federation of Canadian Undergraduate Subersives. A highly organized intellectual elite dedicated to the
forceful overthrow of the Student Council
Radsoc—An armed militia maintained by      <
NFCUS  characterized  by  red  ankle socks
which are hoisted to knee length during periods of proletarian strife.
Filinsoc and Mussoc.—Comparative and
superlative degrees of Radsoc.
Gliding and Soaring Club—A small group
open only to engineers who can demolish
forty beers.
SCM—A society dedicated to daily student movements on*a Christian basis.
There are numerous other clubs too unmentionable to mention.
Campus Institutions
The Totem—An effigy erected by Ubyssey editors from the heads of miscreant
copy-boys.
The Pub—A polite English word for the
Ubyssey office.
The Brock—An educated raz/.berry used
only by students from Victoria.
MAD—A state of mind induced by working for the Ubyssey.
The Mall — The Ubyssey editor's kept
woman.
The Ubyssey—UBC's answer to Kleenex.
The Cairn—UBC's most cherished institution. Stanford may have its Peace Tower,
and UCLA may have its football team, but
UBC has its rock pile.
Believing that everything possible .should
be done for the freshmen and freshettes
(bless their little woolen jumpers) I am going
to suggest a number of courses which will
help orient them to university life.
Psychology 171—A study of the herd instinct as manifested in the queue. (It is a
well known fact that when two freshmen get
together for a common purpose that a third
freshman stands behind them and forms a
queue which soon attracts every-one in tbe
immediate vicinity. We feel that this tendency
towards regimentation nfust be eradicated
before the COTC finds out afaput it).
Nutrition 307—An entirely new angle on
garbage acquired through field work at Fort
Camp. Garbage as a compilation of wasted
calories which may be interpolated into
varying degrees of unbalance in the wasteful
persons. To be taken in conjunction with
Agriculture 419—the usage of garbage (tea
bags excluded) in the over-balancing of hogs.
Physical Education 519—The development of broad shoulders in order to get a
copy of the Ubyssey.
Sexual Education 529—How to tell freshmen from freshettes when the latter aren't
wearing beanie caps.
Physical Education 105—Jiu-jitsu, Indian
wrestling and other usefull technique.; in the
countering of attacks by engineers.
Abnormal English 307—A prequisite for
lhe reading of the Ubyssey let alone this
column.
By John Brockington
Perhaps the most rewarding
thing about Albert Steinberg's
noon-hour violin recital was the
rapt attention the student audience gave, to a program ot modern
music consisting,of tbe Dellus Second Sonata, a Sonata by the
French-Canadian, Paplneau Couture, and/ a Rhapsody by Toronto
composer, Harry Somers.
Mr. Steinberg is a god solid
musician and a violinist of considerable accomplishment. His
playing is always in good taste,
his Intonation is admirable, and
his tone Is not overly sweet. With
the cdllahoration of Frances Marr
at the piano, which must always
be counted as a major asset at any
recital, Mr. Steinberg presented
interpretations notable tor their
sanity and control. If he did not
plomb the depths he made one
aware that such depths existed.
Gordon Manley's piano recital
failed to please. So often one is
faced by a performer who has mastered his Instrument but has failed to realise that the technical conquest of an instument is only ap
intermediate step, a necessary evil
toy-aids the reereatlon of music
When not being effeminate and
overly sentimental Mr. Manley was
colorless and somewhat vapid.
Only in "The Sunken Cathedral"
by Debussy did the pianist seem
to be on the right track. The Beethoven "32 Variations" and the
"Carnival' by Schumann .were tentative, incompletely realized interpretations.
* '• *       *
The opening concert by the
Vancouver, Symphony under the
direction of Sir Ernest MacMillan
was a pleasant if rather routine
affair. Sir Brnest is a fine musician but is not without a touch of
academicism.. However, under his
baton the orchestra becomes more
of a unit than has been noticeable in previous years.
'*       *       *
•Jacob I.atelner who was the soloist in the Tschaikowsky Piano
Concerto unvellad a warm-hearted,
rather kindly interpretation that
ws« not without its poetic moments. His unassuming approach
wi« Qu)te refreshing. It is a distinct pleasure to find that in spite
of its repeated mawllngs the concerto |s still a very lovely piece
of music.
* *       *
Madame Marie Rodker is without a doubt the finest singer in
Vancouver. Her performances dt
German LJeder are a thing to cher
ish for its vocal finesse, clarity
of diction, and psychological understanding.
The realn. of the liede Is one that
Is rarely coped with successfully
by singers. Few great lieder singers come readily to mind. Lotte
l.ehmann, Askel Schiotz, Jenny
Tourel and Marian Anderson are
among the small coterie of mas*
ters.
Liede ls actually a form of
chamber music embodying as it
does a complete penetration by
both singer and pianist of the
Inner subtleties of text. The poetry is the prime source of Its musical inspiration and the key to
its interpretive understanding. The
achieving of mood, and atmosphere coupled with the ability to
convey the meaning behind tbe
words are the aims of every serious exponent of this art. A great
voice is a secondary consideration,
Vocal flexibility, control and flawless production are assets to be
prized above a glorious voice.
Although Mme. Rodker did not
enjoy the superb form that was
hers in her UBC recital last summer she nevetheless offered some
most affecting singing. Perhaps
the finest achievement of the evening was her memorable performance of "Schs Ueder Von Geti-
ert" by Beethoven.

Pros find Cons
Pro
Of
Merger
NFCUS-ISS
Because of the difference of opinions on the merger of NFCUS and
ISS The Ubyssey has asked two students to explain the pros and cons.
Both Hlnd-Smlth and Armour attended a ISS seminar in France this
summer.
By MIKE HIND-SMITH
The plan for the amalgamation
of NFCUS and ISS was born this
summer at Prague. It was conceived in the harsh clash of Western delegates with those of the
East, of the realisation that Canada was not strong enough to
take her piace in the universal
student world.
In the report of, the NFCUS delegates presented at Quebec BUI
Turner, student president of the
University of Toronto, said, "we
took a beating at Prague," and
this set student minds thinking-
why had Canada taken such a
beating?"
To answer this question they
produced a plan, a new one in Canadian student affairs, but one
long tried and successful in other
student unions as those of Holland,
United States, France, Denmark
and Australia. A plan which would
combine the National and International functions of student organisation.
COMMISSION   ORGANIZED
At the Quebec meeting this September a Commission was organised under Turner to study the
question. Why had other nations
intermixed national and international organisations, how had they
proved successful and why did they
fel that Canada should do the
'same?
An Important lesson of Prague
had been the strength- shown by
the internal organization of the
students' unions of the People's
democracies and the East. Streng-
, th which made NFOUS appear
woefully weak, and unable either
to express constructive opinion or
to take any significant position.
The Prague delegates pointed to
the, relative weakness of NFCUS
even to the other Western Unions.
They told ' the Commission that
NFCUS must have a list of achievement ln national affairs based on
effective contribution could be
a strong central office, before any
made either In opposition to the
East or in co-operation with the
West.
PARALLEL FUNCTIONS
In subsequent meetings of the
Commission they showed the parallel functions of the National Federation of Canadian University
Students (to give Its full name) a
loose association of students across
Canada, and the International Student Service, .organized for relief
and cultural exchange between nations. Both organize students exchanges, both arange Seminars,
both press for the welfare of the
student, one nationally, the other
Internationally.
They showed that the Union
woud facilitate co-operation and a
shortening of both organizations
ln economy and efficiency, to become fully representative of 'Canadian Student opinion.
PLANS BEING MADE
Through these stages other student unions had passed and so it
comes about that plans are being
made for a Canadian National Student's Association, to be brought
about by merging the twin functions of NFCUS and ISS into a
National office with a central representative council. These plans
are already receiving wide support from both NFCUS and ISS
leaders across Canada, pushed of
couse by those active in both organizations, such as Bill Turner,
Who have seen the need for the
move.
Canada is waking to new international responsibility and through
a National Association, Canadian
students will participate in the
rise of a nation and will be heard
in the world.
By  LES  ARMOUR
The sudden International outlook of NFCUS leaves this usually
hard-bitten author open-mouthed
with wonder.
NFCUS, which for more years
than we care to count has quietly minded its own little affairs
with a striking absence of sensational ideas, has suddenly proposed a merger with International
Student Service.
EXAMINATION
An examination of the alms of
the two groups makes the proposed
merger seem more than a little
like a union between the apple
growers' co-operative and the
street-sweeper's union.
188 is concerned with aid to
stricken students and, eten more
important, inter-cultural exchange
between students throughout the
,globe.
NFCUS, on the other hand, busies itself with reduced railway
fares, badgering the Canadian Government on behalf of Canadian
students, and the peculiar task of
uniting students across the country.
JNOLUOES FACULTY
Moreover ISS Is a group which
Includes faculty as well as students—and faculty is taking an
ever-increasing interest in its work
while NFCUS ls a purely student
affair.
What, after all, have they in
common?
Surey a union would only put
the artificial bed-mates at one another's throats.
The only possible reason behind
the maneuver seems to be that
NFCUS has discovered that ISS
has a central office and a paid
office staff. Obviously NFCUS
wants to cash in on these services which it has never been able
to afford.

Developments In
lies
The press release continues: If
football i.s discontinued, the university will be asked to withdraw
from tho conference, since full participation in each of lour major
sports, football, basketball, track
and baseball, is requisite for conference membership."
The release concluded: "Until,
such time as a decision bus been
made by university authorities, we
ask for the full support of the
student body, alumni and the general public as an Indication of their
faith ln. the future of Intercollegiate athletics at the University of
British Columbia."
TEN8ION  MOUNTS
Tension mounted Friday when
Thunderbird coach Orville Burke
read the riot act to moro than 1000
students assembled in the Armory for a Kickapoo pep meet.
He told students to rovlve their
school spirit quickly so that football at UBC would remain on a
sound footing. Ho advocated a
sound plan for the future of UBC
athletics, such as Is now being prepared by MAD.
RESPONSE   SATURDAY
Student reponse to Burke's request came Saturday afternoon following the Western Washington-
UBC football game. After carrying
UBC players off the field, 1500
Inns gathered before the grandstand calling for Bob Osborno, director of physical education and
Burke.
CHANCE TO EARN CASH

This practice of foreign newspapers getting wrong the earth-

Donaldson Denies
Tag Days Taboo
Council Willing To Consider
Applications For Drives
Wire service and daily newspaper stories that alleged Student Council refused permission to charity and community chest
organizations to hold tag days at UBC were denied by AMS
president Nonie Donaldson today.
 _____—$    »No  minute  refusing  ermisslon
to any charitable organization has
been considered by council at any
time," Miss Donaldson stated.
Miss Donaldson polnaed out
that at the beginning of the term
she attended a meeting of faculty
and Red Feather Services officials,
who were making arrangements for
carrying on the present community
chest campaign amongst the faculty.
STUDENT CAMPAIGN
"At this time," she said, Red
Feather officials asked me if lt
would be feasible for them to carry
on a campaign through the student
body.
"I informed them that since most
students are being supported by
their parents while at university,
that they would be hitting the same
source twice it they conducted -a
campaign here.
"I also pointed out that the entire energies of the student body
would be directed toward raising
funds for the comletion of the War
Memorial Gymnasium this year,"
she said.
"They agreed with tne," Miss
Donaldson said, "end deoided that
this year, as in the past they would
not stage a tag day at UBC.
CONSIDER APPLICATION!
"We are perfectly willing to con*
sider applications for tag days at
UBC, providing application is made
to student council," she said.
"But, at no time did the community chest or the fled Feather
campaign officials make application to us," she said. "Bach application must, however, be considered on its individual merits," Miss
Donaldson said. .
In Ubyssey
TORONTO, Ont. — (CUP) — A
report in the Ubyssey that "The
nigardllness of Quebec Premier
Maurice Duplessis" caused the fall
thought of the National Federation of Canadian Unlveraity Student summer seminar has been
denied by Denis Lazure, president
of the University of Montreal's
student council, who was credited with making the statement.
Lazure also denied that an official letter had been sent by Duplessis to NFCUS stating that he
had "donated the funds for the
seminar to the Rimouski fire victims. We feel that the urgent need
for these people is of greater importance than that of the Stu
dents for a summer school."
DENIES  LETTER
Receipt of such a letter has also
been denied by Bob Johnson, National Secretary-Treasurer of NFCUS, and by allies Bergeron, former U of Montreal student council pesldent.
One of the disappointment at
the recent NFCUS conference
arose from the fact that no letter
saying either yes or no to the NFCUS request for funds was ever
received by NFCUS from the Quebec Government.
MAIN STURDY
The summer~seminar was scheduled to take place ln August at
Fort Lennox, P.Q. and had taken
study. The goal of the seminar
"A Survey of Canada" as its main
was to give students the opportunity to understand the needs
and feelings of different Canadian
regions1. »
The seminar was cancelled at
the last moment when funds promised by the Quebec Government
were withheld. Repeated requests
by NFCUS National president
IUchey Love produced no definite
answer from the Quebec Government und th seminar finally had
to be cancelled.

Letter
High
BY  RON  PINCHIN
Dear Mother,
In a pep meet In the Armory
last Friday, Orville Burke, coae>
of the univesity football team, issued a challenge to the students
on the campus.
He advised us that if we did not
show a little more enthusiasm
In college athletics, the ultimate
end would be to drop completely
leagues. You must realle, mother
that this would mean reversion to
sport activities only along the
lines of intramural play.
Saturday, Mr. Burke got his reply. More than 1,000 cheering
students gathered in front of the
stadium following' the footbal
game against Western Washington Vikings, which we lost 47-7,
and began demanding statements
from Bob Osborne, director of physical education, and Burke.
A Different Story
Previous to this, the students
had calmly filed out their bleacher
■eats, and massed themselves
along the sidelines ot the field.
Ordinarily, when our team Is absorbing a beating such as that received on Saturday, these students
merely head for the nearest exit.
Saturday, however, a different
•tory was ln the process of publication. Immediately following
the final gun, the gridiron assumed the role of a subway platform.
That is to say, people began pouring across this platform with but
one   purpose in mind.
Dejected football players were
hoisted high upon the shoulders
of the demonstrating student body.
Ctfes of, "WE WANT OSBORNE,"
and "WE WANT BURKE," filled
tbe air. To your beloved son, it
was one of the greatest displays
of spirit ever witnessed in the
history of the university.
Only Ployers
You must realise, mother, that
up to this point, student spirit had
hit an all-time low. The only athletic supporters at football games
were those worn by the payers.
But we can hardly allow the individual student to bear the brunt
of the attack. In the past, the Men's
Athletic Directorate has been
seemingly more Interested in depriving athletic privileges from
those athletes who desired to play
on inter-city sport teams, rather
than rebuilditg the level of campus sports.
Further It had appeared that cooperation between Administration
and MAD could not be reached.
Classes and team practices have
always managed to clash, and
athletes have, thereby suffered.
Co-operation between these two
factions has been reached however
and Osborn and Burke claim that
it is now up to the students.
Hardly Cricket
Homecoming is less than three
weeks away, and our 'Birds clash
with the Northern Idaho squad
What the potato-staters have been
doing to such smaller colleges as
Whitworth has been just short of
complete demolition, and it ap
pears obvious that this college
may be dropped deeper Into its
currnet   depression.
Since the football team lost Its
first game this season, downtown
newspapers have been crltcizing
campus athletics with no avail.
Students and sportsmen alike have
been treated as nothing more
than a group of "dead-end  kids."
It is quite true that student
spirit has been somewhat pathetic,
and I agree with the city publications on that particular question, but only to that point. That
this univesslty houses simply a
group of low-class "untouchables"
is hardly, shall we say mother,
"cricket."
And gee, mom, it was certainly
just peachy-dandy to see Orville
Burke tear up one of these newspapers which stated, that college
football was on Its last legs at UBC.
What to do with the situation
is now up to the students, if they
would only realle, we could at
least claim a moral(e) victory on
Homecoming Day. It would then
be only a matter of time and pa-,
tience before Thunderbirds' string
of losses experienced a complete
reversal.
As Les Armour said  in  his column,   "If   need   be,   let's   build   a
bonfire In  Raton's parking lot."
Your loving son,
Ron.

ONLY ONE 'BIRD was left to beat after superb blocking by Viking teammates cleared the
field for back Bob Fagon, but the local player managed to bring down the visiting star and halt
Western in their tracks. Western's blocking and passing were the open secrets of their remarkable 47-7 success Saturday.

Height Lack
Fails To Mar
Hoop Spirit
■y PITI LUSZTIG
Amid all talk of our hopeless
athletic teams, there are signs
that basketball might provide
those few badly needed wins
that 'Bird fans are waiting for.
"The spirit, drive and eagerness
to play of the hoopsters at practi-
cub are a definite indication that
things ae looking up," said head
mentor Jack  Pomfret.
"Lack of tall players ls our chief
headache. Thunderbird teams have
consistently'had an average height
of 6'2" or better. This year we will
have the smallest team ever, one
with an average height well under
6 feet.
HEAVY L088E3
This can he attributed to the
loss by the Birds of Bill Bell, Nev
Monroe and John Forsythe, all
men over 6'5", and men that aren't
easy to replace. No other Conference team has lost tall players
to the extent as that of UBC.
One of the reasons for the shot
in the arm that Pomfrets boys
have received Is'Maury Mulhurn,
formerly of the University of Portland. Another transfer is Scott
Fraser from St. Martin's.
TWO  SHIFTS
Ron Sudlac, a guard from North
Burnaby is a hustler. Oeorge Ca-
therall from the Provincial Champion Dukes has only just reported for practice. "Incldently," said
Pomfret, "the team will not lose
a single man through graduation
this year, and eligibility isn't a
major problem."
The number of men now attending workouts has been cut from
70 down to 47, aid working in two
shifts. Eventually these will be
molded into three teams of 12 men
apiece.
Big Dick Penn, sporting a close
crew-cut, is Jack's able assistant,
and will once more coach the
Braves. Dick is quite sure that his
team will be able to do as well
as they did last year ln the City
League.
The big question is what can a
team with plenty of fight, backed
by an excellent coaching staff do
without height? Players and coaches all seem to think that this year
will see the Thunderbirds out of
the   cellar.

Possibly a letter should be written to the Western Washington
team for their unconcious support
in the new student urge for Improved athletics.
Certainly any letter to Western's camp should also include
high praise for their exhibition of
the rea) way to play football.
PASSING  EXPERT
Their passing was of calibre
unseen so (ar this season and seldom seen in past years while their
blocking left Uttle to be desired.
Viking's running plays were good
when they used them and so were
the rest of their 48 team members
when they were put into the game.
Not much can be said about the
Thunderbirds from the scoring
angle, nor much In the outstanding points which marked the calibre  of their opposition.
About all they had was a lot
nf guts and stamina.
The local's only points were
scored on a pass play that thef
had been trying over and over
again, a long fling from quarterback Gordle Flemons to halfbnck
John Ployart who went over Western's line standing up Leo Lund
made the convert.
PLAYED BETTER
Considering     their     opposition,
Thunderbirds played a good game
compared to their other two contests this year.
But again only a few carried the
load and Western's 48 members
were playing against no more than
15 tired  'Birds.
Dave MacFarlane started the
same with a bad knee but he played most of the game nevertheless.
ALM08T WENT THROUGH
Spasms of greatness by Oeorge
Bull, who almost got away free
twice on running back Western's
kicks after touch downs, and success of numerous 'Bird passes
brought the enthusiastic crowd to
their feet and the touch down pass
to Ployart made past cheering
look sick.
Little was lacking Saturday except depth, experience and a few
more touchdowns. Certainly the
spirit was there, on and off the
field.
Despite the sudden eruption of student enthusiasm at the
UBC-Western Washington football game Saturday, the official
score board shows that Thunderbirds lost the game by a loose
UBC Chiefs Nudge
Ex-Brits In Second
Miller Cup Tilt
UBC Chiefs, in their second
game of the Miller Cup series,
edged out E-britannia 6-3. The
game, if rather slow, was hard-
fought to the last whistle.
Sparffed   by   scrum   man   BUI
Blake   and    stand-off half   Jack
Smith, the Birdmen were on the
offensive throughout the game.
Ex-Britannia, although showing
plenty of fight, were not playing
together as a team, and without
their spirit would undoubtedly
have lost by a much larger score.
Austin Taylo opned up the scoring for the Chiefs with a penalty
kick, but "Bugs" Taylor soon after tied It ujj with another penally
kick to make the score 3-3 at the
half.
With a few minutes left to play
in the bruising battle, Junior Tenant scored a try from a five yard
scrum to put UBC ahead 6-3.
Next Saturday the Chiefs meet
South Burnaby at Central Park.
In a second division tilt at Douglas Park, the university's Braves
white-washed a hapless West Vancouver squad 24-0.

HAAS YOUNG
. . .  high  scorer
Haas this year will be asked to
fill the shoes left vacant by the,
graduation of Bobby Koch. Both
players are right wingers and both
have a similar style of play.
There the likeness ends. Koch
was essentially an opportunist
wliile Young is a strategist, Haas
lias a. hustling style which endears
him to puck fans.
CONSISTENT
With Young in the line-up the
Thunderbirds are assured of a
consistent goal getter. He has developed into a great team player
and this is the main reason for
his great value to the team.
If things continue in the present,
trend, the hustling riglitwinger is
destined for his best season in a
string of good  seasons,
