Queens Help
With A Kiss
First post-war kisses to be auctioned off on a Canadian campus
went under the hammer at Friday
noon pepmeet In the University of
British Columbia Armory, as a result of which the Memorial Gym
Drive came ten dollars nearer lib
half-million dollar quota.
Four thousand students packeo
the Armory to be entertained by
Sully Mason and his orchestra,
and special guests Rhondda (Mis*

Winning $10 bid was made by
Dave Hayward, Joker Club president," who was awarded a kiss
each from Miss Kelly and Miss
Hayward met the situation with
a calm, slangy "Well, stone the
crows" and mopped his forehead.
Afterwards, the Ubyssey was tht
first to get a statement from him.
"Wow!" Hayward exclaimed.
Miss Kelly confessed that thu
had been her "first opportunity to
visit a large university such at
UBC, since leaving Brisbane," although, she said that the campiu
set-up was somewhat different in

currkular activities, such as the

Valuable Books
Are Vanishing
Officials of the university library are alarmed over the Increase
in the number of missing books.
Miss Lanning of the library has
expressed the opinion that students do not realize the value of
many of the books.
The value, she said, lies not In
their cost but in the fact that
many of them are irreplaceable.
"Some have gone out of print, and
others printed in England had
their plates destroyed or lost."
She pointed out that these books
are needed by a great number of
students at one time or another
in their university careers.
"1 hope that students will make
!t their responsibility to return U
tho library any library books they
see lying around."
Miss Lanning mentioned also the
possibility that if the trend of
missing books continues, disciplinary action might be taken against
the offenders.

Backs Clean Up
Endorsement of new counter-
measures against "litter louts" by
the Faculty Council of student affairs is expected to give new impetus to the clean-up campaign,
Ted K'rkpatrick, Student Council president revealed Friday.
The FCSA has been approached
to okay a boost in the price of
soft drinks sold on the campus to
ten cents, with a sum refundable
on return of the bottle.
"We feel this measure is necessary to impress upon certain members of the undergraduate body
the virtues of cleanliness," Kirkpatrick. stated.
Other counter-measures are being considered such as commercializing empty paper bags and other

Who would expect to find on the campus of UBC a
Chinese who had talked to students in almost every university
in the world and yet plays on a ten-cent flute like the Pied
Piper of Hamelin? It is still more startling to find that this
man has escaped underground, almost a living skeleton from
starvation, under the Japs at Hong-Kong, to be flown from
Chung-King by General Chiang Kai-Chek to lead his
Chinese delegation in San Francisco.
Yet   this  son   of  Pekin,  ln   the        "~~"~^~""~———-——————

Board Reps
Hold Meet
Formation of a representative
board to obtain a balance in presentation of political speakers on
the campus was the purpose of a
meeting Friday, November 22, of
political club representatives.
The idea of a board arose from
the Tim Buck incident. Opinion
in the meeting was that the group
would be restrictive. The board's
purpose is to Invite speakers for
individual clubs.
It was moved by Dacre Cole, of
the International Relations Club,
that the committee go on record
as agreeing that balance is desirable in the presentation of speakers.
A motion was resol*ad that representatives recommend to the Students' Council that the question of
political clubs on the campus be
reopened, with the understanding
that such clubs make no direct
party affiliations and be constituted solely for the purpose of discussion and study.
Bob Harwood was chairman of
the meeting.

Greer, the first speaker, stated

solution lies in equal dispersion
throughout Canada, "but," he said
"the Japanese seem to like B. C

"The war is over and tha flme

"If we exclude students of Japanese origin we are excluding a
source thought which.will be ot
value to us In the future."
These remarks were the opinion of Barney Allan, third speaker.
He added that he had gained these
ideas while a prisoner of the Germans for two and a half years.
In the opinion of Grant Livingstone a discussion of the Japanese
issue involves those principles of
democracy for which men fought
and died.
"We would be violating fundu
mental principle if we were tc

to live in specified areas. How
would we like to be told where tc

The discussion arose from the
fret that two students ot Japanese origin have won scholarship*
nt UBC which they have not taken
advantage of, ostensibly ior the
reason that they would not be
welcome on the campus.
Livingstone said that w* should
make it clear to these students

So far this term the Ubyssey has kept
its nose out of off-the-campus affairs. But
even university students sometimes drink
water, so the chlorination issue may as well
get additional treatment from this paper.
Last year, the Ubyssey entered the dispute because it couldn't stand the hysterical
stubbornness of a certain self-described
"leading" daily newspaper in Vancouver,
which is more terrified by a minute trace of
chlorine in its drinking water than it is by
the chance that someone might be harmed
by the water's possible impurity.
This year, at least, that paper's readers
have been spared prattle about "Instinct"
leading to belief In "untreated safety and
excellence of Vancouver water". That does
not mean to say, however, that the Vancouver Sun has stepped down one little bit.
Definitely not. This time its cry is "more
man fifty years' experience, during which
the people have consumed the natural water
in perfect Immunity from water-borne
Perfect is a strong word. Hag there been
"perfect immunity" for every single day, or
hag Vancouver just been lucky?
Once again the paper'a readers are reminded that three experts have claimed that
chlorination is unnecessary. And yet, other
experts have seen fit to condemn the supply
as unfit for human consumption. It is very
doubtful if health departments of two nations
would imply such danger if there existed
no reason for it.
So, once again, public opinion will be
whipped up against chlorination, even
though the anti-chlorination interests have
not dared make any serious claim that the
protective measure could harm anyone.
Some people will proudly proclaim that
they've drunk Vancouver's gloriously pure
water for the past fifty years without once
catching any nasty old disease, while others,
will want to be SURE that the purity of that
water will enable them to make similar
statements fifty years FROM now.
If there were an epidemic in Vancouver, and it were traced to contaminated
water, it might be expected that the Vancouver Sun would feel rather embarrassed.
Of course, that embarrassment would not
help any families which had been harmed
by the epidemic. If such a time came it
could well be claimed that one of Vancouver's "leading" newspapers had actually
been one of Vancouver's "misleading"

Happy old Sabbath, my wry-lipped
In line with our established policy of
keeping you happy by appealing to your
baser Instincts, today we gratify your urge
to read other people's mail with no greater
risk than being bored to tears. As if you
could even cry anymore, after all you have
been through, eh?
Anyway, we have a letter to hand from
an organization which is known as the A.D.
B.C.C., or the Association of Disgruntled
and Browbeaten Campus Columnists. If,
that is, you can call it a letter.
This letter is, in fact, nothing but a wordy
and tired and tiresome repetition of scurrilous falsehood which has from time to time
—without success—been directed at your
favorite columnist and mine—Jabez.
We are asked to contribute a dollar to a
fund which will be used to circulate an
"expose". Sorry, gentlemen. We haven't a
dollar, and if we had, it would not go to
slander a gentleman whom we have known
and admired for nearly forty years. No
dollar of ours will help you purchase mud
to sling at a very fine old gentleman who
has earned his place as a peer amongst the
peasants of print as a master of insanity-
ridden imbroglio.  Boy, we can't do lt.
Furthermore, gentlemen, we believe your
remarks to be inspired by nothing more
than plain envy at the public adulation accorded to the Prince of Whimsy. So there.
Ranking next in age, integrity and endurance to the Cairn (no mean column in itself) "The Mummery" approaches its first
decade in print. You, gentlemen, are probably aware that it has consistently been
voted as the most popular feature we have.
And "The Mummery" is undoubtedly the
most widely-read column by that name in
any college publication on this continent.
This can only be taken to mean that some
people like it. We're not trying to explain
why—just giving you the facts.
Jabez needs no defence from any quarter,
my friends. But there are'a number of
misconceptions which have grown up, like
stinkweed around the lily, about this legendary literary figure. We are happy to
state that they are all untrue.
The author of "The Mummery" does
not do his best work under the influence of
alcohol. We can assure you this is a fact,
because we have seen his copy as it came
in and not once was it redolent of, or spotted
by, any form of liquor. Moreover, we saw
the beloved Man only last week, walking
across the campus. We can state positively
that he was perfectly sober then.
The remainder of your charges, gentlemen of the A.D.B.C.C., are equally without
foundation in fact, and will not even be
discussed in public for obvious reasons.
And you sharper widgets who read this
knew all the time that all this rot had nothing to do with Jabez, but was merely to
buttress the claim of colleague Remnant
that you can't believe everything you see in
If you are an aspiring politician, though,
keep this in mind. The best way to slander
is to deny. And if you are running for public office, and are almost out of ammunition,
you could say: "The charge has been made
that my opponent was court-martialled in
the War of 1812 for conduct unbecoming, etc.
I regret that this issue has come up. It is
most unfair, and a man's past record should
not be held against him."
Dear Sir:
Now that we've chosen our
dream girl and have become thoroughly disgruntled with the nightmare we're accustomed to escort,
might I suggest that the next contest be devoted to selecting not
the best-looking but the best
cooking coed on the campus. After
all, beauty is only skin deep,
while food sometimes gets as far
as the stomach, or even farther.
Surely many men would be Intensely interested In the results of
such a contest which would also
popularize many girls previously
Every contestant would submit
a pie, see, accompanied by an affidavit stating that she actually
baked it herself, not her mother.
It might even be a good idea to
tie the mother's hands behind
their backs for the duration of
the contest. In fact, maybe you'd
better shoot the old ladies (in the
name of the Gym Drive, of
course), just to be on the saw
Then, after preliminary ellmirt-
ations by judges chosen from the
Geology Dspartment, the dozen
or so best pies would compete at
a mass rally In the Armory. To
keep the contest on a high plane,
taste the pies, but would base their
decision on a careful examination
of the crust, on the degree of effort necessary to lift the pie off
the table, and on whether or not
the pie rattles when shaken.
For added fun, the final judges
could be chosen from those boarding-house students who have never seen a pie before.
Such a contest, I submit, would
serve to take the emphasis off
talcum powder and put it back
on baking powder. After all, a
girl may look good enough to eat,
but sooner or later we are forced
to substitute lamb stew. Therefore, let us glamorize the skillet,
gentlemen, before it's too late.

Week-end Review
And Preview
What ran be done with the one-
act play has been domonstratea
in two ways this weak in V n-
eouver, by the Players' Club, and
by Noel Coward. You have probably seen ths Players' Club quartet; Mr. Coward's one-set play,
"Still Life." is currently being
shown here in its Coward-produced film version, "Brief Encounter."
This film depends for Its effectiveness on the same pointed, half,
developed Incident which the
one-act play uses and it is effective. Be sure of that. Cella Johnson and Trevor Howard, using a
carefully-phrased restraint, manage to reproduce their "brief encounter" very skilfully.
Another distributing film which
may make it possible for us U
see some excellent foreign films Le
MOM International. One of theli
series of imports has already been
shown locally, "The Last Chance.'
You may remember its photography of N. Italian and Swiss
backgrounds as well as its moving
story of displaced refugees.
A few others ln prospect from
this source are—Jean Oabin and
Michele Morgan in "Stormy Waters," a pre-Occupatlon French
film, and two new post-occupation
French films, "It Happened at tha
Inn," and "The Welldigger's Daughter" in which the great Raimu
plays the welldigger.

BEAUTY ON THE SPOT—Marion Albert, queen of western
university campi, is pictured here as she was interviewed
Thursday for the Canadian Amateur Radio Operators Association magazine XTAL. Ham operator Vern Harding
handled the dials for the Toronto hookup.
A unique Interview was conducted Thursday noon in
HS 5, home of the University of British Columbia Amateur
Radio Operators' Association, more commonly known as the
Marion Albert, Queen of the western universities, was
interviewed by a ham station in Toronto for the Canadian
Amateur Radio Operators' Association magazine XTAL.
Mrs. Miriam Gillier, whose call letters are VE3AZI wag
at the Toronto end, while Vern Harding conducted the UBC
part of the proceedings.
Mrs. Oillier is the wife of the
advertising manager of the magazine. Also at the eastern end were
Mr. A. H. Oillier and Mrs. John
V. Perdue, managing editor, who
was connected with the ham network through headquarters station
The conversation was opened by
Mrs. Oillier, who congratulated
Marion and asked ''How does it
feel to be Queen of all the western universities?"
Miss Albert replied, "Thank you
very much for congratulating me.
It feels wonderful and lt Is very
Recept'on at this time was quite
bad, making It necessary to repeat
question and answers frequently.
Toronto then asked Marion to
speak louder and closer to the
mike, and added "You have a very
lovely voice."
Questions followed as to Miss
Albert's age and height, and to
what she attributed her beauty.
Mia Albert replied quickly, "If
that's what you call beauty, it's
my parents' fault!"
Of course the.ineyiiebK. quertidh
was asked, "What part of Canada
do you like best?"
Naturally Marlon retorted that
she Iked Vancouver immensely.
"Have you ever thought of competing with the eastern universities, and have you ever spoken
across Canada on the amateur network before?" queried Toronto.
Mist Albert replied that she had
never thought of competing with
tho Bast, and said, in answering to
the latter part of the question, "No,
I have not spoken on the amateur
radio before, and it is a big thrill
to talk across Canada."
"Conditions" at this point were
picking up and reception was becoming much clearer.
The Queen then gave a description of herself and added, "My
history has not been terribly Interest ng. I have attended school
in Vancouver all my life, and
went to Prince of Wales High."
She went on to say, "I never expected anything like this to happen In first year. It is a surprise
and very thrilling."

the Department of Extension and
head of the Physics Department al

Mrs. Oillier, or Miriam as she is
known to the VEACS, Svh'ch are
the UBC Hams call numbers, said
that they were very anxious to receive an 8X10 photo of the Quean
by airmail. Toronto asked Vancouver to stand by while they
phoned Mr. Perdue to ask him if
he had anything to say to Miss
Mr. Perdue, by medium of the
telephone, as his station was unable to send on the band that was
being used, thanked Marion for
the interview, as it was a novel
experience for both parties.
He continued, saying that their
publication represented some four
or Ave thousand hams across Canada ( and as result of the interview
would have a very nice story In
the forthcoming Issue.
Queen Marion terminated her
part of the trans-Canada conver-
sat'on by expressing her pleasure
and thanks for the opportunity of
speaking with Toronto.
Vern Hardy took over and told
Toronto that the Queen had consented to send, here Miss Albert

Miss Rhondda Kelly ("Miss Australia of 1945") is a very attractive
girl. Even a myopic reporter like
myself could observe that without
the  slightest difficulty.
But there are some other qualities in Miss Kelly's make-up which
are just as striking to the observer
after a few moments in her company. These are a warmness
and sincerity, a complete lack of
stiffness yet a certain dignity
whkh to describe as ''reserve"
would be far too harsh.
She is utterly and completely
natural. In conversation, she has
the pleasing habit of looking you
right in the eye while she speaks
in a quiet, well-modulated voice
with a characteristic Australian in.
Perhaps you are wondering how
a myopic reporter is able to discourse these minute details of
Miss Australia's character and habits. To set your mind at ease, I
shall tell you. I had the unmitigated gall to invite myself up to
her Hotel Vancouver suite the
other evening. Although this waa
to have been an evening of rest
and letter-writing for her and hex
chaperone, she consented very
graciously to see me at 8:30 pjn.
She answered the door herself
and ushered me into the sitting-
room. The usual Introductions
took place and we were seated.
After trying desperately to think
of some intelligent questions to
ask, I came out with the highly
original one of what were her Impressions of the UBC campus and
its coeds,
She replied that the UBC Is
much larger than her own University of Queensland which hat
about 2000 students and whose
buildings are smaller and more
widely dispersed. Student's organizations are more dynamic and
powerful than on the Canadian
campus, she said.
Our coeds are very much like
Australian girls in her opinion.
They use fewer cosmetics than
American girls and have a refreshing naturalness.
Tennis, swimming and surfing
are her favorite sports in her native Brisbane. She dances and sings
mezzo • soprano non-professionally.
Her subject of specialization in
college was physiotherapy. It i»
her intention to continue this field
when she returns home.
Miss Kelly's World-circling tour
awarded her as  winner of her
country's national beauty contest
started east from Australia. Sha
passed through Egypt and Port
Said, the Mediterranean to France
and England across the Atlantic to
the United States and Canada.
To her, Paris is the most exciting city in the world. The experience which will remain most
vividly in her memory was the
drive through the whole length
of London the day she arrived in
the capital. This was her first
glimpse of those famous land,
marks which she had read about
since she was a little girl. Buckingham Palace was no longer a
fabled dream-palace; it was real.
While In London, Miss Kelly attended many concerts and plays.
She had the great fortune of being
able to see Laurence Olivier In
"King Lear" and John Guilguld
in Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment."

When a certain article concerning the Big Block awards
appeared in the Ubyssey, several of the fellows on the desk
remarked that this was bound to bring the odd letter. Sure
enough, it did. The letter, which was received with licking
of chops and rubbing of hands, is printed below.
After doing quite a bit of thinking about our friend's
letter, we definitely decided that we were In the right, so
leave tis try to explain the situation to our friend and to any
others who may have raised an eyebrow when said article
The first thing that we must get straight is that Big
Blocks are not the only award that we want to see on the
campus. It is true that Big Block is the ultimate in Varsity sports. However, there are many other awards that are
given on the basis of sports that are recognized and that the
owners wear proudly. We speak of the small blocks and
the plain letters. In short, there is a definite recognition of
those who dc not receive a Big Block.
There Are Other Awards
After all, it is readily understood that tfiere are many
students on the campus who either haven't the time or the
talent to play for a senior team. Many of the boys Just want
to get out there and play on one of the minor teams because
they like sport and feel that Varsity is probably one of the
best times in an athlete's life to gain some sort of recognition.
Now that doesn't mean that every one who plays for a
Varsity team makes a name for himself nor does It mean that
those who play for outside teams can't make a name for them-
•elveg. That is ridiculous. It Is simply the fact that most
athletes who go to a university feel a certain pride in being
able to play for the team representing the University. It is
something many athletes look forward to.
Thf) Big Block club therefore realises that every athlete
who plays for a univeristy team ls Interested In sport and his
university. However, to give everyone on a university
team a Big Block would destroy the significance behind a
Big Block award.
The Other Fellow It Recognized
For that reason, other awards have been Instituted on
the campus to give recognition to these players who may not
reach the ultimate in Varsity's sportlight. After all, Varsity
is a conglomeration of a great many people and therefore, of
a great many athletes. Is it not right that those who manage
to end up on top of the heap in some sport should have some
sort of recognition in that they have reached that height ln
fair competition with any others who were Interested in
But let us remind you of something else, friends. There
have been many people in the past who have won a Big
Block and have been neither an ace athlete nor a sensational
coach or something equally as awe-inspiring. They have
received their awards simply for service. Seems peculiar?
Oh, I don't know.
Interest Counts A Lot
It just goes to show that you don't have to be a sensation
as long ss you have an interest in sport and in your university.
Just take for example the fellows who manage the teams. In
many cases, these boys, are managing the teams because they
feel that even if they can't play the game well enough or if
they haven't the time, they want to be in there with the
boys. They are awarded a small block, or sometimes a Big
But brother, don't go on living under the assumption
that a small award isn't treasured just as much as a Big
Block, nor that these awards are not recognized by others on
the campus.
As for severing connections with everything you ever
did before you got to University, if you want to take it just
that way, it is of course out of the question. The idea 'that
we were trying to put across is that now you are a student
of UBC It is to the University that we owe our allegiance
right now.
We Must Stick Together
If everyone on the campus went around in high school
groups, instead of trying to be one big happy family, how
could the University ever attain spirit and unity. Particularly
is this so when the enrolment is as large as it is at present.
To say that you must forget all that your coaches have
done for you In the past is also ridiculous. Never was there a
a true sportsman who did that. That would be severing your
past to on exaggerated extent that Is not at all necessary nor
desirable. We merely ask that your loyalty to the Blue and
Gold ot UBC be uppermost in your mind at the present
while you are at UBC.
This will help to give the University that spirit and
unity.  Perhaps THAT is why it is a traditioa

Senior A Hoop
Trouble Cools
Trouble arising from seven
hoopmen of senior A category
wishing to play on outside teams
without first having tried out for

somewhat cooled down in the past
few days.
Week before last it was announced that the Vancouver Basketball commission had applied tc

stated UBC students to play on
the various teams in their league.
The commission complained tha.
If these players were not allowed
to sign on the rosters of the city
teams, these teams affected would
be crippled beyond ability to operate.
However, the playing on outside
teams by UBC athletes does not
conform with the regulation that
all athletes try out for Varsity
teams, and then, only if they are
rejected, may they participate or
city teams.
This regulation applies to all
sports, and the MAD has followed
its usual policy in regard to the
players now Involved.
Of the seven players wanted by
the city hoop commission for outside melon chores, six applied tc
the MAD for permission to play
on city teams. Of these six, only
two were granted permission to
play outside hoop, UBC athletic
director Bob Osborne announced
yesterday. Osborne explained that
these two boys had tried out for
Varsity teams, and had not been
Tiie remaining four have so far
apparently ignored the regulation
Osborne said, but action will not
be taken by the MAD until potential offenders have actually
participated in a game.
Further developments are expected when the basketball commission meets Monday.
Osborne declared that the commission's statement about the
teams folding up has not been
borne out by what has since actually happened. The UBC athletic head stated that only two teams
have had to withdraw from the
city league, and that they did s«
for reasons other than those the
commission said would be res-
poslble for crippling of Vancouver
teams.'He said that the absence
of Varsity boys had little effect on

Weatherman Eliminates
Today's Rugger Matches
A double header Rugby game previously scheduled for
the Stadium this afternoon, has been postponed because of
the Inclement weather.    Both these games, UBC against
North Shore All-Blacks, and Varsity versus Ex-South Burnaby will be played next week.    ——————————
The Rugger season has very few
games left  this  season,  and tht
lead now enjoyed by the Varsity
fifteen appears to be quite safe
The trailing 'Lomas will have to
win every one of their games and
the campus men would have to
lose all of their remaining game,
before Varsity would lose the Mu-
ler Cup.
Present indications are that
there is little chance of the Blue
and Gold hitting a slump at this
time for, although exams are dost
at hand, the team is still at full
strength. The few casualties of the
season have Included Bud Spiers
and Bill Dunbar who have been
troubled with bad knees, and Pets
Hobson who has been playing in
the last few games suffered bruises in an automobile accident.
These few troubles, however,
leave the squad still prepared to
face any team in the area and the
team is confident that they will
end up on top of the league.
Tne UBC t> em which started the
season considerably lacks some of
the experience snd weight of Its
brother fifteen, and has been nudged out in the last few games.
However, they have every chance
of finishing third and may ever
land up in second place.
The UBC boys have played ah
their tough games for this yeai
and should coast 'over their opponents in the remaining games,
If past performances are any Indication. They have already held
the second place Meralomas to a
tie and in their games against
Varsity have shown a great deal
of spunk and speed.
Letter To The Editor
Dear Sir:
After doing a lot of thinking
about Mr. Dyer's article in tftt
Ubyssey last Saturday regarding
what he calls "foreign" awards,
I decided to write this letter.
It is my humble opinion that
Mr. Dyer in writing the article
and Mr. Franklin in making the
statements that he did, have done
a great Injustice to the non-block
winners on the campus.
The first bone of contention that
pops Into my head Is the question
of just how many students ln
going through the university will
achieve the ultimate in sports,
their big block. I venture to say
very few. With the university the
focal point of all outstanding athletes who wish to obtain a higher
education, many who would
otherwise be able to get a berth
on one of the teams Is just not
good enough. The problem at the
university when the time comes
then is not one starting from
scratch with a team of greenhorns

Ik   uj   life   Mtnr   I SI
West Point ^v^renS^kK^^^eWt^^^C^^^^IStaSet
but merely scraping the cream as
it were from the various high
school clubs. Mr. Dyer's statement
should read "every outstanding
athlete has a chance of winning
a block."
The statement to the effect that
a freshman should sever all outside connections seems a very unreasonable one to me. During the
years which I spent playing various sports both in and out of
high school I made many friends
and to my friends and coaches I
owe a certain amount of gratitude,
To ask me to completely sever my
connections with them is to me
taking a stand far beyond reason.
I also fall to see in what way
the wearing of outside athletic
awards on the campus can conflict
with the Tradition, Spirit and unity of the university.
If we are to have a discrimination against outside awards, and 1
call It that because you are directly banning something from a free
thinking, democratic campus, then
I say let us have discriminator
against Tim Buck and other political parties.
Yours respectfully
Jim Banham

getting the assist.
The Cubs scored three times to
tie the score in a rough second

The 'Birds met the men from      ————————.
Central Washington in the opener before home fans last night
Tonight marks the second game
with the same team and the second game of the season with American competition.
After downing the Vikings frorr
Western Washington on the Bellingham floor last Wednesday, the
team will be out to add another
win to their record.
As was expected, the first string
did most of the scoring in the
game with Western Washington
but with a little more practice,
the second string should show
strong to eny one who simply
takes a look at the roster.
The efforts of such men as Kermode, McOeer, Nichol, Weber and
Franklin are well-known in Varsity hoop circles. Such names a*
Haas, Stevenson, Selman and Forsyth will also be remembered
however for their work on other
Varsity squads.
Dave Campbell and Nov Munro
h?ve also played with Varsity
teams. In other words, the whole
team makes a rather brilliant list
ot names. This in itself cannot
win a game but with the help of
Coach Bob Osborne, a winning
combination is bound to come.
Along with this glorious lineup are three other casaba artistt
who have made a name for themselves on the maple courts. Bob
Scarr played last year with Laurie's Pirates and was recognized
as one of the best guards in the
league. Henry Tostenson and Jim
McLean have both returned from
the armed forces to play with the
'Birds this year.
The Wildcats from the Central
Washington College of Education
as they are formally known, have
an idea that they should not come
all the way up to Vancouver just
to lose a game. This just goes tc '
add interest to the contest.
The preliminary will bring to-
gether two teams that are qultt
capable of putting on a good battle. The line-up which the Varsity

Weekend Soccer
Do Washed Out
Ol' Man Mose and his weathei
predictions cancelled all prospective soccer tipoffs over the weekend. Included in the slashed program is the feature contest of the
proposed weekend cards, which
was to pit the red-hot Varsity eleven against the Grandvlew Legion roundball exponents.
Varsity was ruled a slight odd*
en favorite for the tilt having piled
up four victories in five starts and
racked an impressive 2t goals
while limiting their opponents to
a hard-earned 10.
Also cancelled is the second division contest between UBC and the
Norquay squad, slated for a eampus billing.
Notices of the postponement of
the games was forthcoming from
the office of soccer magnate Dave
Murray in an exclusive interview
with your press.
