VANCOUVER, B.C., Saturday, SEPTEMBER 28,1946
No. 3
DR. EARLE BIRNEY offered proof of the tradition that
stones for the Cairn were carried from city centre in the
Trek of 1922. Enlarging on this Dr. Birney stated at Thursday's Cairn Ceremony that he carried at least two of the
stones in his shoes.
WUS Plan Party
For Freshettes
WUS—Women's Undergraduate
Society have good food and good
fun earmarked for the Freshette
supper at Brock Hall, starting at
5 p.m. Saturday, September^.
The WUS have planned the occasion in an effort to help Big and
Little Sisters become better acquainted.
It is not known whether Little
Sisters will be spoon fed by theii
benefactors or will stand in a line
for their hamburgers, cokes and
doughnuts, but tt is expected that
they will be held In tow for the
balance of the evening.
For those freshettes who do not
conform with placards and green
goggles, women of WOOF will b*
sitting in judgment Little Sisters
who appear at the supper in other
than conventional Little Sister garb
will also be subject to the decrees
of this court.
Phrateres, and possibly Arts students will be on hand with a skit
or two. The ordeal will end with
a songsong and plenty of ear-
splitting yells.

this year's soaring enrollment. A

moved over to the Armory to wait

SCM Mixer Held
Brock HallTonight
FEATURING Frank Nightin-
gale's Orchestra, the Student
Christian Movement's annual mixer will be held in thc main lounge
of Brock Holl tonight from 9 to 12.
Tickets are on sale at fifty cents
each. Majorie Amstey head of the
committe in charge, stated that all
funds from the mixer will go to
the World Student Christian Federation for for student relief.
Introduced by Bob Harwood, Dr.
Birney gave an amusing account
of the part played by the students
in the early days of our University.
Tired of crowded conditions and
incomplete facilities at the Fair-
view "location", the students
through rallies, petitions, and individual effort attempted to rouse
the apparently lethargic Governmental attitude.
"Facilities were so inadequate,
at the old site that at one time one
of the Chemistry Labs, consisted
of a tent pitched under a window
of the smallpox isolation ward of
the Vancouver General Hospital,"
he said.
The Trek was staged in November of 1922, in Dr. Blrneys*
freshman year, and the stones
for the Cairn were gathered
from the surorundlng fields, by
freshmen, at the insistence of
the sophmores. With some
' pride, Dr. Birney pointed out
the Jagged stone he contributed.
Dr. Birney went on to say that
the Cairn is a symbol of one of
the largest and most successful student endeavors in the history of
our University and stated that it
"could * not have existed without
a complete form of student democracy".
He concluded by praising Dr. N
MacKenzie for his great work at
a time when there are just as many
problems, on just as great if not
greater scale, than there were at
that time.
President N. A. M. MacKencie
emphasized that without the willingness as shown by the staff and
student body in the last few days,
to put up with present inconveniences the University could not be
considered a success.
Dr. MacKenzie urged staff and
students to maintain their high
standards and UBC would not only
be the second largest university,
but also the best in Canada.
Congratulating Ted Kirkpatrick,
and fhe Student Council in perpetuating the Cairn ceremony, Dr.
MacKenzie said "that it marked
the initial campaign of a new drive
for expanding present facilities,"
and that he would strive to keep
the present site, the most beautiful
he had ever seen kept at its pres.
ent beauty.
In concluding, Dr. MacKenzie
commended all those taking part
in the War Memorial Drive for our
new gymnasium.
The ceremony which was recorded by CKMO, was broadcast
during the evening.
Attitudes of Sophmores towards
Frosh. in the early days as related by Dr. Birney are apparently
unchanged today. However, it
herdly seems appropriate that Sciencemen should give1 a demonstration of such attitudes during a tradition as the Cairn ceremony.
A CONSERVATORY of music at UBC—that's the dream
of Harry Adaskin, head of UBC's new school of music. However, Mr. Adaskin, who arrived on the campus Wednesday
last, is not going into detail over his future plans until he has
looked the ground over thoroughly.
Mr. Adaskin will direct his activities from his office located In
Room 1 of Hut G5 near the Brock
Memorial building. From here he
will begin his work enlarging and
guiding musical appreciation a-
mong the student body. Contemporary music will be included
among the works studied.
A RECITAL series and string
quartet are definitely ln the offing.
In planning his recitals, it ia Mr.
Adastain's hope to throw rehearsals
open to students to enable them
to learn to appreciate the construction   and   to  understand  the
problems    involved    in    studying
and recreating a work of art.
Mr. Adaskin is a member of
Canada's world famed Hart House
group but he does not itend to
play in a quartet himself again.
He'll limit himself to teaching and
instructing. His first year will be
devoted to giving general lectures
on music and aesthetics and laying the groundwork for a degree-
granting course In music here at
Like University President Dr.
Mackenzie, he will settle with his
family in Acadia hutments.
THERE'S one lady in Vancouver who thinks that a dog's best
friends are Mr.C. P. Armour and
thc residents of Acadia Camp,
Thursday   night,   Mr.   and  Mrs.
Scott  Sims 3548  West  37th  Ave.,
lost a dog by the name of "Bonny"
somewhere near the Camp.
Early Friday morning, "Bonny"
was found — lodged in one of the
unfinished   Acadia   buildings.
Mrs. Sims phoned the Ubyssey
to express her thanks to Camp
Manager Armour and the Acadia
inhabitants for "their courtesy
and help" in looking for the dog.
Said Mrs. Sims: "All of us spent
a very worried night — including
Mrs. Sims wanted to pay the
Ubyssey for printing her message,
so the Ubyssey is turning over the
payment to the Gym Drive.
SPEAKING to the largest Freshman class in the history
of the University Thursday at noon, Dr. Earl Birney reminded students that all was not as it is now as he recalled
the difficult conditions under which students worked during
the days before the Trek of '22.
Housing   Headache
Swamps   Officials
REQUESTS for accommodation from veterans with
families have "swamped" the Extension Department.
More than 120 have been received from couples with
as many as three children. This number is far greater than
the department can place. Another 120 requests or housing
have been received from childless couples.
A preference system has been set up, in which urgent
cases will receive first consideration. Each case is previously investigated by the Legion. '
Although assignments are still being made to Lulu Island, the huts
there will be filled by tlfe end of
the week. Suites at Westbrook
may not be ready until November.
Housing prospects for single students are much brighter. Dean of
Women's office reports that more
. offers to board girls have been
phoned in, since the appeal in
downtown papers, than can possibly be filled. Some offers came
from as far away as Burnaby, although preference was naturally
given to offers of full board near
the University Gates.
Although no figures on the numbers of single men that have been
placed are available, the Extension
Department estimates that about
400 of tentative landladies were
contained on lists prepared for this
week only.
Barracks at Little Mountain alloted to families of veterans attending UBC may soon be utilized.
At the present time, squatters are
living there.
John MacKenzie and Dace Brous-
son, head of the Legion housing
committee, issued a statement that
n staff of "trained social service
workers who are ex-service per-
sonel" are investigating the situation, and that immediate action will
follow their report.

UNTD Recruiting
To End Thursday
UNIVERSITY Naval Training
Division, recruiting for a limited
140 men, has set Thursday at 5:30
p.m. as the last day for those wishing to join.
Applicants are to meet in the
UBC Armory. They will then be
taken by bus to HMCS Discovery
in Stanley Park for medical examinations.
UNTD officers expect that examinations will be completed in
two or three weeks, after which
training will begin.
Twenty-three one-hour parades
a year, at twenty-five cents an
hour, will be held evenings at
HMCS Discovery. Courses offered include signalling, boatwork,
navigation, and seamanship.
To climax the training period a
two week summer sea-cruise, at
regular service pay, Is open to all
UNTD members.
All ex-service studets registered
in 1st year Arts and Science who
have not taken the battery of psychological tests must report to
huts M2 and M3 at 1:30 p.m. Saturday September 28. Tests will
Inst from  1:30 until 5:30 p.m.
Campus Clubs
To Begin Drive
Next Monday
NEXT week will be Club Week on tiie Campus. Jerry
McDonald, LSE president advises every student at UBC to
become a member of at least one campus organisation.
"We have an impressive list of clubs this year," he
continued, "at least one of which should appeal to everybody.
Joining one should help every student achieve a well rounded
university life"
UBC Publicity On
National Scale
be advertized on a national scale
this fall.
TWO NATIONAL magazines will
carry an article and profile of
Pres. MacKenzie, and the Oct. 22
edition of the "Montreal Standard"
will feature our university in an
eight page roto-gravure by Mrs.
Zoe Bieler, (nee Zoe Brown Clayton, formerly an editor of "Ubyssey").
There will be releases in all
weekly papers throughout B.C.,
with special features affecting different localities. Trade journats
will have articles covering such
activities as mining and construction.
It is hoped that the province
will benefit from these publications.
It is suggested that with a more
unified spirit in the student body,
everyone can help with Varsity's
public relations, and boost the
drive for the new gymn.

From all accounts, Thursday's Cairn Ceremony was by far the most interesting, and
therefore the most successful, in these many
long years.
Praise is in order for the Student Council
members who organized the gathering, and
appreciation is owed to President MacKenzie
and to Dr. Birney for their contributions.
Still more complimentary phrases should
be used to describe the initiative displayed
by the Radio Society in managing to have
the ceremony recorded for later broadcast.
But, on the other hand, words of scorn
and rebuke might well be directed towards
those delinquents who found it necessary to
stage a disturbing   demonstration   in   the
vicinity of the ceremony.
It's a shame that so-called faculty spirit
should clash so distastefully with university
Several faculty groups and freshmen
seemed to be involved in the rude display.
Among them were some of the younger
engineers. Perhaps the executives of the
Engineering Undergraduate Society, which
usually has the faculty very well organized, might do some good by pointing out
to the lowerclassmen that exhibitions like
that staged on Thursday noon aren't appreciated at ceremonies such as the one at
the Cairn.
Time is one of those things about which
no one, not even the Publications Board, can
do a thing.
Because that is true, the staff of the Totem
are very anxious that there should be no
doubt in the minds of students about the
time limits on the taking of individual pictures for the Totem this year.
The staff is making every effort to plan
the production of yearbook so that it will
appear on the campus just before the beginning of final exams next April.
To make that timing possible many factors
have to be taken into consideration, and
often arbitary decisions have to be made in
the knowledge that they are simply making
the best of a difficult situation.
One of those decisions is that all individual pictures will have to be taken by the
Totem photographer in Brock Hall before
November 30. It is possible to say now that
there will be absolutely no exceptions made
in respect to that deadline.
To help make meeting the deadline easier,
all students who had pictures taken last
year, are, with the exception of those who
will graduate next spring, being asked not
to have new pictures made this year.
Upperclassmen will be notified soon
when they may make their picture appointments-
At present, the photographer is shooting
the portraits of freshmen students. AU freshmen pictures must be completed by Oct. 12.
This is only too true.
The Mummery
Dear Sir,
In line with recent changes in and addition to the Calendar, I should like to suggest
the following courses, to be included in the
next Calendar. (Not given 1947-48)-
Mathematics 173—A first-year course explaining the system of numbering for courses
in all faculties and departments. Also to include some effective methods of remembering the numbers of the courses one is
taking, other than having them tattooed on
one's chest. Open to all undergraduates, and
slightly ajar for older members of the Faculty.
English 166—A first-year course explaining, as fas as is humanly possible, what the
hell the Calendar is talking about. Also some
discussion of the Anglo-Saxon origins of
such symbols as HL5 and H03. This course
will be given in English when you least expect it and will clash with everything.
Differential Calculus 5477—An advanced
course dealing with such problems as fitting
150 students into a hut thirty feet by twenty
feet, if half the students insist on breathing.
This course will be open to absolutely nobody.  Please don't ask about it.
Economics 18444—The methods of preparing a budget enabling a married veteran
to live on $80 a month. This will be a highly theoretical treatment, quite funny in parts.
Don't miss it.
Psychology .006—An analysis of the mentality of students who drive to the University in empty cars, passing fellow students
trudging or waiting on streetcorners.    In
cluded will be discussions of various methods of treating such cases, such as strangling,
knifing or boiling alive in Caf coffee.
Physical Education 6%—Astride jumping
for fat girls. Girls taking this course will be
required to jump astride 1:30 - 2:30 Mon-,
Wed., Fri., and 3:30 - 4:30 Thursday. Prerequisites: two legs (a left and a right). No
others need apply.
Animal Husbandry 500—A short course
on how to raise rabbits, for pleasure or profit. Starting with the simple problem of two
rabbits, the course will become more difficult as it goes on, usually ending in confusion and panic among students and instructors alike.
Prerequisite: Animal Husbandry-499 .How
to stop rabbits from raising).
I should also like to suggest, Mr. Editor,
"that the Calendar be enlivened with photographs of the instructors, perhaps each with
the number of his course across his chest.
The students deserve some indication ot
what they can expect to see right on top of
Let's all pull together to make UBC's Calendars the perfect wedding gift or Christmas
present. As it is, they're like old razor
blades; you never know what to do with
them. The sooner we can pep them up with
the prerequisites for a degree in Premarital
Training, the sooner we'll put our Calendars on a paying basis. And now, having
laid the groundwork, sir, I shall step back
and wait for somebody to put his foot in it.
Very truly, JABEZ.

You hear some funny stories
about that Calm, though. The stock
explanation, nowadays, involves a
somewhat Implausible Children's
Crusade and long, toiling lines of
zealous moppets, each with a rock
pressed to his (her) bosom. The
facts of the time seem to indicate
that the students and the rocks
were present, but the tolling was
done in the Stars, the Maxwells
and the Model Ts, propelled by
holy censers of paraffin and Shell.
I may be wrong about that; but
those were the facts presented to
me. As a matter of fact (and this
Is something the Board of Governors prefers to overlook) the stones
in question weren't brought along
to form the Pile at all. In those
days it was the custom of university men and women to carry
stones of that size whilst attending
their alma mater. For one thing,
It marked them as university students; but more Important, the
stones were carried for the simple
reason that any professor who delivered a bad lecture might be
stoned to death, Instantly, without
appeal. Finding, on their arrival,
no lecturers and no lecture-rooms,
the students concerned left the pile
as a grim reminder of future mediocrity's deserts.
The pile, of course, was immediately and irretrievably cemented
together on orders from Above;
and it is to be noted, In passing,
that with very few exceptions lecture rooms at this university are
built flat and not in ampitheatre,
or pit form. A road-paving program was then hurriedly pushed
through and to this day cobbles
and coping stones are noticeable
for their absence. Ex-servicemen

able conclusions may And no difficulty in associating the cobbled
streets of Halifax with the renown of Dalhousie. Mr. President, sir, this is merely an observation and a tribute to the quick
and the dead, and not an appeal
to anarchy. Heaven forbid. Emma Goldman would blush In this
gilded company. But truth must
It might be well, at this time,
to remark upon the somewhat dubious fable which had its origin
many years ago in the fact that
frosh and sciencemen, in thc early
weeks of the semester, persisted in
the error of mistaking the Cairn
for a conveniently-located Comfort
Station. (This, of course, was prior
to the attachment of the Inscription, which was quickly added). It
is believed that this correction was
suggested by Constable Orchard,
then detailed as the Provincial Police officer in this area, who experienced considerable difficulty in
controlling the unruly line-up in
view of the muttering at the nonexistent occupant of the Cairn. It
is not true, of course, that the an.
nual Cairn ceremony was inaugurated as a subtle substitute for the
sign:   "This is NOT a W.C."
So much for the Pile. Let it
stand into the centuries, then,
awaiting its' ultimate rediscovery
Week-end Review
And Preview
WHEN THIS column started
previewing towards next week in
its usual amiably vitriolic fashion
it could see only dimly when at

slowly settling clouds of freshmen
(of all ages) whose verdantly
hovering presence harbings not
the idyllic greenness of spring but
the rehabilitated greenness of fall.

said 'adult' and 'intelligent' didn't
it?) are moderate. For $10 there is
a family - membership admitting
two people, for $6.50, a single

the membership card is transferable.

the big problems at University
these days. Students pour onto tht
campus by bus, private car, motor
bicycles and bicycles, with some
arriving on foot.
But Bob McClung of 1149 West
Twenty Seventh Ave., has solved
the transportation problems for 12
of his fellow students by driving
out to University every morning
in a "Heavy Utilities Personnel
Carrier", which is nothing more
than a big overgrown car.
Bob, brother of co-ed model
Maxine McClung, is an ex-air
force mechanic attending University for the first time. .He does
all the minor repairs to the vehicle although there hasn't ben
many of those as yet.
Ihe HUP Is a semi-cab over engine* with 4 wheel rlgM hand
drive, From the outside it looks
like a b'g box set on wheels, In
fact this type of vehicle is sometimes called an applebox.
This personal carrier holds
twelve people quite easily, although not quite so comfortably.
There are two seats in front, and
one big one holding two or three
people in the rear.
In between these seats is a large
space that is filled with small
folding chairs. These are not part
of the regular equipment, but an
addition of Bob's so that he can
get more people seated In the car.
Bob's car had been used by the
army, but according to him, "It
was quite easy to convert it from
war to peace. The dealer painted
it green and I added one or two
things of my own."
The vehicle although not new
was in fairly good snape when it
was bought. It had only gone 22,-
000 miles with a new motor installed.
Bob and his father bought the
vehicle from War Assets i~.pora-
tlon through a   down town  car
dealer for $700. Bob estimates that
there are only II of this type of
vehicle operating under a civilian
license in the Province, none of
them ln Vancouver.
According to Bob's fellow passengers the vehicle rides fairly
comfortably", although they agree
it Is a trifle bumby. "But, they
say "that makes it all the more
It Is a very easy vehicle to drive,
almost as easy as driving a car,
according to the owner, but Its gas
consumption is only half that of an
automobile, somewhere around ten
miles to a gallon of gas.
Bob's father plans to take the
car with him when he goes hunting, and has fixed some brackets
to the sides of the vehicle so that
he can place a bed across the inside.
One thing about owning a vehicle of this type, if you ever get
stuck, you can shift into front
wheel drive and pull yourself out.

ALREADY, signs of the battle the poor freshman
must put up before he takes his place on the campus are in
evidence. But it won't be long now before the whole tribal
warfare is put on a gentleman's basis when the green bedecked Freshmen put their heads on the block before the
Sophomore axemen in tho annual Frosh-Soph hoopla contest.
Probably in the first place, the whole idea was suggested
to further humiliate the lowly freshmen even more than the
ordinary week of torture through which they grope their
way. Somehow though there have been slight reversals of
form in the past which did anything but lower the morale
of the Frosh class.
The Series Is All Even
In fact, over the last five years, the Frosh have managed
to win their share of the yearly tilts and have even pressed
the upper classmen in the other contests.
Take last year- The Soph squad had to work overtime
before they managed to subdue the younger up-starts by a
narrow 30-31 margin. Natch, the big boys were heard to say .
that they were only trying to encourage these young lads
but things weren't always under control.
Taking over the reins of the Frosh quintet for the current fracus is big Ritchie Nichol. The smiling Thunderbird
star is well known around Varsity for his capering on the
maples last year. In particular, most of the casaba fans will
remember Ritchie's performance in the tilt with the Globe
Ritchie Figures It's Easy
Believe it or not, Mr. Nichol drew just as many laughs
as the best of the Dark Town Hoopla men. If Ritchie could
only manage to show these freshmen how to pick up the ball
with one hand and a few more tricks of the trade like that
there, the Freshies might easily be able to upset the mighty
Soph machine.
In short, and I do mean short, conversation with the
Frosh mentor, Ritchie simply stated, "We'll lick 'em!" He
didn't state just how he hopes to go about accomplishing
this little matter but it seems that he has great quantities
of talent from which he can mould a club.
This little fracus really has a lot of signifgance though
that even the players don't always know about. With the
news that Minor League casaba gets under way on Oct. 15,
the Varsity coaches are really on the bandwagon for talent.
Need Lots Of Hoopsters
All next week the hoop-inclined sportsmen on the campus
will be running around the maple court trying to impress
the boys who are in coaching positions this year. This will
probably include one Inter "B" squad and two Inter "A"
Last season, the Freshmen and the Sophs continued
their fued right through the basketball year as they each
entered a team in the minor league setup. The Inter "B's"
really came closer than either of their big-brother teams
however as they got to the finals before being taken out by
Tookes in a real thriller.
As yet the Frosh would seem to be all dark horses but
the Sophs have a pretty fair group to select the starting
five from. One of the boys who will be shooting for bigger
and better things this year is Gordie Selman, the sensation
of the Inter "B" squad of last year-
Sophs Have Large Choice
Besides the lofty pivot man are such gentlemen as
Messers Boyes, Forsythe, and Barker just to mention a few.
From the Frosh Inter A squad of last season will be one Cam
McLeod and team-mates Nev Munro, Dick Ostrosser and
many more.
And so, everything seems in readiness for another gruelling contest, at least as ready as either team ever has been
in the past. It makes the game more interesting to have only
one practice before the tilt.
Only one caution should be thrown out to the players.
The floor has just been painted kids, so let's not dint it up
too badly. If the opposition player does climb on your back
as you shoot, just ask him for a car ticket for the ride.

VARSITY'S sport clubs on the campus are mobilized
again this year in expectance of a greater enrollment than
ever before.
All these clubs have some sort of recreation to offer to
its members to take the razor's edge off the scholastic end of
the alma mammy activity.
Given below is the full list of the minor sports on the
campus this year.  The clubs are all on the look-out for new
members to swell their ranks.
For this reason, the club presidents or in some cases,
executive members in some other capacity, have listed their
phone number^ in order that you will be able to get in touch
with them.
Most of these clubs have headquarters on the campus.
It would possibly be a good idea to drop in and see all the

For New Season
FAR FROM undaunted at the
rough handling received on the
Lake Washington water course
last spring, UBC's Rowing Club
oarsmen are planning an extensive training period for another
try at North America's big time
sculling honours.
Student rowers will be briefed
next Monday, 2:30 p.m. in Arts

outline their training plan for the
coming session, explaining their
hopes of a month and a half practise at the end of the winter session, on Salt Spring Island.
Two crews will enter competition next summer with a heavyweight crew averaging six foot
two inches. Coxswains are also
required for the club, these students must scale under 120 lbs.
A meet with VRC In the fall
and Washington University next
spring will help to prepare the
oarsmen for North America'c Inter-collegiate Regatta July 5.
Although the boys didn't do so
well last year it must be remembered that this was their first
large regatta against such famous
rowing colleges as Cornel, Yale,
Harvard, M.I.T. and Wisconsin.

knocked over every American College on the tour with the exception
of Stanford, will not be entered as
he turned professional in July.
Plommer, who recently won the
BC. Amateur Closed Championship at Shaughnessy with 72 hole
total 295, will be pressed to keep
his title against the field. Team
member Hans Swinton, recent
winner of the West Point club
championship is on top of his
game and shot a warm-up under
nor 70 over the University course
this week.
Davie Dale, former Quilchena
club champion, has been away all
summer but is rounding into
shape as are Dick Hanley and
Ormie Hall.

THE BOOSTER PASS, the greatest Uttle bargain to come to the
Varsity sport fan goes on sale
again at noon today. There were
only 500 of these special tickets
printed so it would pay you to get
there early.
Just as ia matter of interest, the
Stadium grandstand cost $1.35 to
either students or the general
public Season tickets for these
football games alone, which entitle
the holder to a reserved seat
under cover, costs $6.00.
Now, for the Varsity student
only, a special pass has been introduced entitling the holder to a
seat reserved within a section in
the Stadium and the gym as well.
The section that is reserved in
the Stadium is on the left side of
the Stadium under cover of the
grandstand. A special section will
also be held in the gym, No one
will be able to sit in this .section
unless he shows his pass.
The pass covers American football, Basketball, and English Rugger tilts. All this for the bargain
price of $5.00.
There's no doubt about it that
to get a real good seat at all thc
games at the minimum cost, all
you have to do is get a Booster

or at the quad.

Thunderbirds To Meet Portland,
Oregon U In Exhibition Contests
THE SEASON for basketball may yet be a little ways
away to the average hoopla fan but to Bob Osborne, coach
of Varsity's Thunderbirds, it's time to get the team ready for
another torrid year in the Pacific North West Conference
loop. Most of ihe present preparation is in the form of arranging a few pre-series tilts for the squad to see how his
charges will stand up under the power of the American
Universities this year.
The Wizard of Oz has accepted an invitation from the
University of Portland to take the Thunderbird quintet
down for an exhibition tilt on December 30. Also in December, the' 'Birdmen should be playing University of Wash-
inton. The game will be played on the home grounds of the
Washington club sometime after exams.	
Another definite however
is a
series with the University of Oregon at Eugene. The Blue and Gold
squad will be making that trip on
Nov. 29 and will play a two game
series with the Oregon squad.
The line-up for this year's 'Bird
quintet is as yet very uncertain
but it is a well known fact that
Sandy Robertson, captain of last
year's squad' will not see action
with the Blue and Gold this year.
Another spark plug missing from
the line-up is Reg Clarkson whose
educated toe will also be missed
in American grid circles. Both of
these laddies spent a pleasant summer playing baseball although they
were in slightly different areas.
Reg played his ball In his own
back yard as compared to Sandy
who went back east at the beginning of the season toting a Boston
Red Sox farm club contract under
his arm.
Although the absence of these
boys is not any too good for the
UBC boys, there are plenty of
fellows returning to the fold this
year and with what Bob Osborne
can bring up from other teams on
the campus, the 'Birds hope to
go on to repeat their efforts of
last year when they won the
hoopla honors in the Conference
There will be a meeting for all
