Fire Department warned students

Basing his statement on personal

in from five to eight minutes after
catching fire.
As senior fire protection officer
of the three services, Chief Lister
investigated the great fire at Camp
Debert in 1942, which was fought
in sub-zero weather for 39 hours.
He also investigated large fires at
Camp Borden, Regina and Jasper.

Club, tentatively scheduled for the
end of February.
"Although we have received
permission from the Student's
Council, we haven't seen the Provincial Police," said Bill Tate, co-
organizer of the Marathon with
Bill Dunbar,
"Present plans are to hold the
Marathon on the Mall, February

"However the interference which
would be caused to traffic makes
this a matter for the Department

From Students For More Space
CALLING for a flood of student suggestions for expansion of Brock Hall facilities, Garry Miller, AMS treasurer,
revealed Tuesday that the planned expansion will not entail
a mere addition to the present building but will be a second
building, probably of larger size.

sooner, Miller disclosed.
Original plans were to pay off
that loan in 11 years by a three
dollar addition to each student's
AMS fee. Increased enrollment
has meant that only $16,000 remains to be paid off.
Continuation of the three dollar
tax would be ample to pay off the
proposed larger loan ln an 11-year
period in view of the size of the
studsnt body, Miller said.
Pointing out that the method of
financing the new building made

said the AMS committee preparing

Because of the continuing dlfft-
cutty of getting building materials,
Miller could not forecast when the
new Brock Hall could be built.
However, he thought construction
could start late next year.

Aggie Brawl Set
For January 27
ON JANUARY 27 the Aggies
are once again getting together for
their annual barn dance, This
year's party will be in the White
Rose Ballroom. Gordon Bell, 4th-
year president, expects an attendance of 400.
As in former years the accepted
dress will be the oldest clothes
you have. There will be a prize
for the most disreputable costume.
Prizes will also be given for the
best contestant in a male leg show.
Dancing will be mostly modern
with a few square dances thrown
in. Part of Dave McLelland's band
will be there to do the musical
honors, and Dr. Laird, professor in
agronomy and honorary president
of the 4th-year Aggie executive,
will represent the faculty.
In order to give 4th-year Aggie
students first chance for the dance,
only those students whose names
are on the list of students of this
year will be given tickets.
FORMATION of a branch of the
Lutheran Students' Association of
America will be carried out at a
meeting of Lutheran UBC students at 12:30 on January 28 in
stitution will be prepared.
This meeting is the outcome of
an informal dinner given by the
Lutheran students on the campus
on behalf of Miss Betty Garlton,
field representative of America, on
December 7. Miss Garlton outlined the purposes of the LSAA.
A committee was formed at that
time to make a canvass of the
Lutheran students and do the
preliminary work towards the formation of a branch of tho organization at UBC.
All Lutheran students at UBC
are automatically members of the
LSAA and are entitled to be
present at the meeting on January
Pre-Fab Homes
For Veterans,
Legion Goal
ONE HUNDRED pre-fabricated
vhouses for married student veterans are the goal of a new housing
drive by the University Canadian
Legion housing committee.
Located near the university, the
houses would be pre-fabricated,
portable dwellings, similar to the
Allison Rehabilitation house now
on display on the North Shore.
They would contain four rooms,
n large modern kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a bedroom and
u living room. Rent would be
approximately 20 dollars a month.
The houses could be built at the
rate of one a day.
Before plans for the project can
be carried further the committee,
under John MacKenzie and Dave
Brousson, must have definite Information as to the number of students interested.
A meeting for all married veterans Interested in the scneme will
be held in Applied Science 100 at
noon January 29.
One hundred names of persons
interested in the project must be
in the hands of the committee before the proposal will be considered by the authorities.

Ubyssey Poll Finds 73.5% Against
Students Against Full Political Page In Paper
The Ubyssey should not throw
open a full page to student political opinion in preference to campus news stories.
Of 500 students queried in a poll
completed by The Ubyssey this
week, 73.5 per cent answered "No"
to the proposal. Eleven per cent
said "Yes" and the balance were
Comments on the suggestion
ranged from "The Ubyssey should
keep away from politics" to "A
full page of political news would
be a very good thing."
A student-veteran suggested that
one Ubyssey edition each week
could be made "political." Another student suggested a regular
half-page of political news.
Other suggestions: "Publish
more political news for the benefit   of  students."    "Don't  have   a
political page, but publish a few
columns touching on politics."
"The Ubyssey is for news."
Attitudes to the proposal varied
from emphatic aproval, to a belief that some increase in political
news would Ste good, to emphatic

The Ubyssey the way It is."
The Ubyssey has a wide reading
public, the poll revealed. Eighty-
eight per cent of the 500 queried
said they read it regularly.
Only 21 percent said they had
attended club and other meetings
on the campus dealing with current problems. Of this minority,
only 46 percent believed the meetings they had attended had shaped
their opinions in any way. Ten
percent were not sure.
Asked whether they were more
interested in campus news stories
or in contributed articles indicating student opinion,  63  per  cent
favored news stories, 24.3 per cent
articles and 12.*l per cent Hked
both equally.
Strong support was given Ubys-
sey's opinion panel. More than 79
per cent approved of it. Students
suggested 18 topics for discussion
on it.
Asked which features they preferred, students revealed an overwhelming admiration for Jabez,
anonymous author of The Mummery. Ninety-five students mentioned him. Twenty-one mentioned "Beauty-on-the-Spot"; eight,
editorials; seven letters to the
editor, six, Luke Moyls, and six,
the late Mary Ann.
Men as well as women regretted
Mary Ann's passing.
Five students wanted to see a
panel discussion in The Ubysssy
on race prejudice. Several suggested the Japanese question, car
tels, Russia and fraternities for
Other panel topics suggested
v/ere: crime and juvenile delinquency, expansion of UBC, European rehabilitation, Canadian nationalism, employment, chlorination, minorities, Canadian-US
relations, Canadian politics, the
French-Canadian question, the
movement of Canadian university
graduates to the United States, and
raising the standards of UBC.
Limiting of panel contributions
to 200 or 300 words, and limitation
of the length of letters to the
editor, were suggested. Panel contributions by professors as well as
students were suggested.
One student proposed a weekly
poll by The Ubyssey on controversial campus topics.

Visioning Visual Education
.   .   .   EDITORIAL PAGE   .   .   .
The onus is now on education and the
general public, with its tendency to "arm
chair generalize," is diverting its attention
away from atomic battles and boundary
disputes to the topical question of "Who is
going to university, how, what, why, and
Every "arm chair educator" has conceptions of what the university is doing,
and all have ideas as to how these things
should be done. But some of the most
valuable offerings have come from students
themselves, even if they are addicted to rose-
colored glasses, and we would like to present,
and add to, an editorial sanction of "celluloid
education" presented by the Toronto "Varsity," representative newspaper of the
largest student body in Canada.
The "Varsity" has gone out on an
argumentative limb in intimating that in
many cases the screen and projector could
replace, if not completely, partially, the
professor and the diagrammed text-books.
But the limb won't break, because the
editorial in question has been reinforced by
healthy arguments favoring establishment
of technical and documentary films as an
integral part of the curricula of all Canadian
universities, with special attention given to
engineering and medical courses.
"If several universities were to co-operate, sharing the cost and benefits of educational movies, and the change was made
slowly, it might not cost any more than the
present system" reasons the editorial, which
queries pointedly if "the potentialities of
movies have been recognized by Canadian
universities," and pokes an inquisitive finger
at university authorities with the question
"Will anything be done about the deficiency
at present apparent in our syllabus?"
Visual education does not appear
neglected "west of the Rockies," and
a documentary film being prepared by
the extension department of the university
about the expansion of the university itself
is perhaps the "thin edge of the celluloid
wedge" here. The film, sponsored by the
university, will be distributed throughout
the province to high school groups' to
convince people who "don't believe a thing
until they see it," that education is essential
and the University of British Columbia can
provide that education.
The next steps for the university should
be, first, the presentation of scientific and
documentary films produced, if the idea
"catches," by other Canadian universities
and such groups as the National Film Board;
and secondly, the production of educational
films here. We have the potentialities and
the slogan, "A projection-room lecture
theatre for every permanent building" may
well be seized upon by students.
As the editorial sums up, the fundamental advantages of visual education remain,
for "In the fraction of a second during which
a scene changes $. movie could take the
spectator to any part of the infinitesimally
small world in which bacteria, atoms, and
the theory of the calculus exist."
An exchange of documentary educational films between all the universities in the
world is the ideal.
The Gauntlet Is Hurled
Outdistancing by far any other news
story this week in news value, is, we feel,
the Publications Board challenge to the
Students Council to a quiet and slightly
athletic noon hour game of basketball. The
verbal gauntlet has been hurled down, and
the contest, long and eagerly-awaited university tradition and always won by the
Publications Board, is, as the sporting
authors say, "on".
However, Students must decide for
themselves beforehand whether or not they
are in favor of increasing Students Council
membership again this year. In an effort
to stem the tide of Publications Board
basketball victories, council members have
called for larger councils, with the result
that this year a Social Coordinator and
Sophomore Member were added to council
ranks.    One, an ex-Pubster disloyal to the
clan, has fifth column infiltration duties.
Students may quell the increase of
council members, which may only end when
all undergraduates except pubsters are
councillors, by circulating petitions on the
campus to the effect that council may not
be authorized to call for future increase of
membership in the face of impending Publications Board basketball victories. This
will guarantee that the freedom of the press
may be safeguarded from a preponderance
of councillors.
The situation, is, as we see it, in our
usually unbiased fashion, "crucial." Students must choose between freedom of the
press  and preposterous preponderance of

PUBLISHED below is an exchange
editorial written for The Varsity, student
newspaper of The University of Toronto, by
Paul Vaillancourt jr. of the University of
Montreal's Le Quartier Latin, and translated
from the French by another U of M student,
Marcel Reid.
The Ubyssey reprints it here in the
interests of better inter-provincial relationships.
*   *   *   *
A question to the forefront in our University at the present time is the formation
of relationships with other universities.
Furthermore, we have decided to establish
at U of M a foreign relationship department,
to make our university known and to exchange opinions on questions of the day.
We are convinced that these relationships
should not be kept at a half-sincere handshaking level.
To make these contacts profitable, we
should discuss not the ideas on which we
are united, but those on which we are
divided. And we shall not be surprised if
there are many that fall in the latter category.
Unity Is Crucial
Surely one of the first problems to be
discussed will be the problem of National
Unity; and on this subject we at Montreal
have ideas of our own. We have been
hearing of it ever since we were old enough
to read the Star, without asking ourselves
what it signified.
There live beside one another in Canada
two great nations, each with its own religion,
culture, language, and aspirations. We believe that, with all the good will in the world,
a single nation cannot be mashed out of these
heterogeneous elements. Nor would such a
feat be of any advantage, either for the one
culture or for the other; for the personality
of each would suffer in proportion as unity
was achieved.
What is the use of talking perpetually
about achieving National Unity by this old,
unprofitable and impossible formula? Let
us leave the politicians to wrangle over that
method of meaningless compromise.
In our relationships with other universities, we shall look less for unanimity than for
good friendship and mutual understanding.
For without agreeing with the thoughts and
actions of another person, one can understand and even sympathize with his motives.
We intend that these exchanges of ideas
shall be sincere, and free from racial or
religious prejudices. We shall not try to
convince our friends that Quebec is the
centre of the world, nor shall we in turn be
ready to believe that Toronto is.
No Melting-Pot
We do not believe, for example, that the
only way towards a good solution involves
a basic handbook of Canadian History designed not to hurt anyone's feelings and
directed by an exclusively Canadian ideal.
We do not want to forget our past, because
to forget our past would be to deny our
history. Those who have died and have
suffered to obtain our rights shalrSiot receive
this insult.
Meanwhile, we are ready to face the future
with confidence, because we see among the
younger generation some unambiguous
wishes for good friendship. May those
wishes of good friendship become concrete
and real.
Thanks to these exchanges of ideas among
students of Canadian universities, we hope
to see some day our two distinct nationalities,
each saving its own character, both inspired
by the same strictly Canadian ideal, having
the same flag and working together to the
expansion of Canada.
Nika Turn-Turn
ONE of the quainter aspects of life on the campus came
to light the other day, when we discovered that The Ubyssey's
regular Thursday issue comes out on Saturday.
This puts us all in a heck of a spot.   Sunday dinners are
going to be eaten on Tuesday, which  is a meatless day.
Hermine, put that can of Spam right back in the cupboard:
we <*an't have Sunday dinner until Wednesday this year.
Even worse, weekends falling on
Monday and Tuesday as they now
do, hapless undergraduates won't
have any weekly break. This will
not apply to honor students and
graduates, as any Joker realizes
they work all the time.
It pains me to realize that the
work I do on Tuesday and Wednesday is going to be old stuff, because I really did it on Monday
and Tuesday, and the results don't
become apparent umil Thursday
because that's when our Issue
comes out.
And then, when at the last moment I think all is sweet harmony
again, I remember that it won't
appear at all until Saturday, because Thursdays now come on
Saturdays, and Saturdays falling
on Mondays as we are assured
they must, that brings us to next
week, and I have to start in all
over again.

new out-of-state, non-veteran students from the school during the
next semester which begins January 22.

The Editor
Beauty and Child
Dear Madam:
Barbara Smith, in her Beauty-
On-The-Spot column of January
IP, overlooked one important aspect of her views in favour of
women graduating.
Women bear children. And because they bear children they,
more than anyone else, play the
major part in rearing their children. Therefore, who will normally make the better mother, the
better companion—she who has
had but meagre education and
narrow scope in life, or the woman who has a deep particular
knowledge and a wide general
knowledge, who has seen much of
life and letters, if only vicariously,
the woman ,in short, who is cultured?
In over twenty years of maturity spent in three continents the
present writer has yet to meet the
children of a mother who was a
university graduate, who were
not themselves above the average
in intellect, poise—culture in general.

Hara-Kiri, Murder Rife
In Social Strife At UBC
STUDENT COUNCIL members threatened hara-kiri,
and President N. A. M. MacKenzie agreed to kick off, when
Publications Board members today issued a challenge to
authority on the campus.
The issue an se over traditional
Fub-Council battles, usually settled
on the basketball court in the
gymnasium. A Pub spokesman
offered the customary courtly
challenge of the newshawk faction.
"I won't say anything," quavered
Allan Ainsworth, leader of the
Elephantine Eleven.
"I won't say we aren't afraid,
either. But I'll see if anyone on
Council has nerve enough to take
the matter up."
"You'll talk - right now," riposted Pubsters. "We demand a
reply within two minutes."
There foUowed an embarrassed
silence from Ainsworth. The
silence continues.
"Students' Council has again
demonstrated its ability to get all
tied up in red tape over nothing,"
commented Mardee Dundas, editor-
in-chief of the Pub. "We are
going to show them just what it
means to get into red tape,"
Ainsworth looked longingly at
the hara-kiri knife hanging by a
thread over his chair. Garry
Miller, Nancy Pitman, Ted Kirk-
patrick, and ex-pubster Cal Whitehead also gazed longingly at the
President N. A. M. MacKenzie,
approached by a Pub spokesman,
agreed to kick off —if and when
the paperboys' challenge is taken
"Kick off at a basketball game?"
the President queried. "Why, I
would be delighted, if I am available."
Glowing with the support of Dr.
MacKenzie, the Publications Board
offers the following challenge, to
forestall any further squirming on
the hook which can be expected
from Council as a mere matter of
"WHEREAS it is known to all
ond sundry that Students' Council
is an assortment of sissies,
"And WHEREAS it is known
that no Councillor has the brains
to pick a walnut,
"And WHEREAS it has become
necessary for the good of their
immortal souls that all Council
members be summarily chastised,
"And WHEREAS the Publications
Board is just the guy to do it,

Sophs Get Fifth
Inter-A Victory
UBC SOPHS squeezed out a
tight 24-23 decision over Arrows
A at the King Ed Gym on Tuesday
night to nub their fifth win in
weight  starts.
In a game which featured a hectic mixture of zone and man-toman defence and a dearth of scoring, the Studes managed to build
up a slender lead that materialized
into a 24-21 count with a minute
to go.
At that point the lid blew off,
and an epidemic of expetives from
the bench gave the Miltonmen an
opportunity to narrow the margin
with a brace of fouls. This they
did, and the scoreboard read 24-23;
however, the tension backfired
and the Arrcws muffeo another
free throw whicn mad been
awarded them on a technical pretext, blowing their chances for

according to Luke Moyls
IF EVER THERE IS an organization on the campus that's
screwy to the last nut and bolt, the Jokers' Club is it. But
we've got to hand it to them. When there are crazier
contraptions or ideas to be brought up, we'll look to the
Although their sparks are setting fire to every square inch
of the campus, their hottest firebrands are warming UBC's
sports soup to a delectably scintillating smell of steaming
enthusiasm, something unsmelt of for many moons.
The gospel they are spreading isn't hard to swallow. To
become a Joker one must renounce all ways of convention-—
after paying the one buck registration fee. Women, jokes,
and low-down music (?) are foremost in every Joker's mind,
and in that order.
Are You A Joker Convert?
Led by Ace Joker Dave Hayward, who, incidentally, was
once a Thunderbird basketball player, the newly-formed sect
spends much of its spare time mingling with UBC's 7000-odd
students, converting such characters as they can touch for
one somolian, and scaring non-believers all to hell.
Naturally these Jokers take advantage of sporting events
because the students are so much more concentrated and
easier to contact at UBC's various athletic features. And
seeing as how sports editors usually attend such contests, it
isn't long before they accost me.
I tell them I haven't a greenback to my name, but they just
laugh in my face. (Jokers don't find it hard to laugh, even
if it isn't a joke.)
A ferret-faced individual sidles up to me and, after
informing me that he has been elected to check my case, he
says my goose is cooked because he finds out that the boss
doubles my pay only last week. I have to admit this, but
I plead with them. After all, two times nothing is still
Woe Betide The Non-Believer
When it becomes evident that they won't take no for an
answer, I ask them how my credit stands. Little Ferret-Face
replies, saying it ain't in very good shape.
Well, I tell them that I might get a job with some lucky
newspaper when I graduate. Why only last summer I am
earning as much as ten dollars a week and all the copy paper
I can eat. But it's no use. They tell me their treasury is
dry.   They won't accept nothing but cold cash.
Since that day my life has been one hectic chase. Just
because I didn't have ready money, they've branded me a
non-believer—practically an outcast. Only last Saturday I
was almost run down by their car parade as I was on my
way to the rugger game.   Those Jokers stop at nothing.
I hear there's going to be a fencing exhibition between
halves at Saturday night's basketball game. Remind me to
polish up my stainless steel suit. The Jokers are bound to
be there, and something tells me there might be some

Here's an interesting note from one of Jim Coleman's

Assumption College basketball team could beat University
of British Columbia Thunderbirds  .  .  .  Points  out that
Assumption won its final 12 games consecutively last year
and has won seven out of eight so far this season . . . There's
an excellent idea for some local promoters . . . Gage also
suggests that Victoria Dominoes could be invited east, too,
since they split with the Thunderbirds in a two-game series."

column in the Seattle PI: "La Don Henson is la leader in

and proud." . . . And here's an Ode to Basketball:

Washington (Chancellor Opposes
Modern Athletic Scholarships
THE NATIONAL Collegiate Athletic Association convention in St.
Louis has heard a strong argument against the recruiting and
employment of athletes by collects.
Dr. Arthur Holly Compton—the
Washington university chancellor
—told delegates that intercollegiate
sports are at the crossroads in the
most critical period of their history because of financial pressure
to win games.
Compton said many coaches and
colleges are straining their consciences in employing athletes and
urging students to devote to the
game time and interest that should
be reserved for studies. He said
this tendency has led to a popular
opinion that college athletes are
dullards  unable  to   take  part in

"If the heavy demand for intercollegiate games as sports spectacles interferes with a program of
educational athletics, the institutions that are in earnest about
education will t>e compelled to
stop the intercollegiate games."
Compton went on to tay he felt
that such a move would be in the
wrong direction—even if circumstances compelled it.
Earlier, NCAA baseball coaches
took steps to prevent the big
leagues from grabbing players before they finish school. They asked in a resolution that the leader
of the coaches' committee—Eppy

Six Wins Again
VARSITY pucksters lengthened
their string of victories last Sunday night by defeating the New
Westminster Paper Mills by a

Paper Mills took an early lead
by rapping in the first goal of the

of the first period they had taken
a decisive lead with goals by Nelford, Saunders, Shumka and Rowledge.

YOUNG 'BIRD - Pat McOeer is
rapidly gaining on the leading
rhunderbird scorers, having proven
himself one of the potential sharpshooters of the squad during tho
past few games. He has scored
more than his share in helping the
Thunderbirds take nine of their

Three Rugby XV's
Play Saturday
ALL THREE Varsity rugger fifteens are slated to tangle in Miller
Cup play in this week-end's
scheduled fixtures.
Varsity Vets have an engagement with UBC in the University
Stadium while the Thunderbirds
meet, Meralomas at Brockton
Point. Both fixtures are slated
for Saturday afternoon, ths campus game beginning at 1 o'clock
and the fixture at Brockton Point
scheduled to kick-off at 3:30.
The Vets will be gunning for
the league leadership which they
now share with the Thunderbirds,
both clubs having six wins and
one loss. They should have an
easier time of it than their rivals
as the UBC fifteen is close to the
bottom in the standing.
The contest at Brockton Point
should be much closer as a win
for the third place Meralomas
would put them ln a tie with the
TOMORROW is the last day to
get entries in for the Inter-faculty
Swimming Gala. There are a few
entry forms still available according to the Gala Committee. As
these entries have to be edited,
the committee would appreciate
prompt action.
Intramural teams should note
that 50 points are awarded to
standings for a complete team
entry. There is still lots of room
for more teams to practise with
the Swimming Club next week
and get that last minute tuneup
before the Gala.
This, of course, applies to the
mermaids too. There is still
more than enough room for a few
more Girls' Teams to enter. Come
on girls, don't let the boys outdo
you, again.
CAMPUS GOSSIP has it that
the Varsity ski team is out to win
th? Noseeum's Kandahar downhill
race on Grouse Mountain this
This Kandahar, or as it is sometimes called, "Candy-Bar," is anything but a sweet race as it winds
down from the Chalet to the top
of the Ski Village and drops mora
than 900 feet in a little over three-
quarters of n mile.
Numerous trees, gulleys, holes,
human bodies, etc., all make this
course a hazard, and to even finish the course in one piece is
something to write home about.
Even with these overwhelming
odds, the UBC Ski Club has entered two teams in this event of
the season.
Gerry Lockhart, Sandy Martin,
Arnie Teasdale, and Fred Roots
compris: tho number one team
who plan to bring home the trophy. Number two team has Doug
Fraser, Jack Frazee, Gordy Cowan
and Don Anderson on the line-up
with Walter Roots and Gerry
Reynolds acting as spares should
any of the above fail to show up.
Drawings for starting times will
be held at the Noseeum's Cabin
Saturday night at 10 o'clock and
all competitors are asked to be at
the starting line at 11 o'clock Sunday morning. No late excuses will
be heard and even If competitors
get to the starting gate 10 minutes
after they should have started
they will get 10 minutes added to
their flnal time.
Gal Athletes Prep
For Tennis, Golf
look at the Gym notice board is
enough to convince any co-ed that
she is missing something in life.
Mrs. Sleightholme is advertising
sports to tempt the laziest of females. In fact, if you are lazy,
remember that one intramural
game is equal to seven periods of
Physical Education.
First on the list is the almost
forgotten Tennis Tournament. The
weather has not been kind to it,
but sometime between now and
the end of February, Mrs. Sleightholme hopes to see all games
played off.
Mrs. Sleightholme's second reminder is the Girls' Intramural
Golf Competition. All games in
the contest must be played by the
middle of February.
Third on Mrs. Sleightholme's list
is another reminder. The badminton intramurals are starting now
ia the Armoury. Don't be discouraged if you haven't a racquet
There are plenty to choose from
in the Gym office.
Fourth, and most important reminder is the Swimming Meet at
the Crystal Pool on Saturday,
February 2. This meet is a University affair, and anyone who
even thinks she can swim or who
does a super belly-flop, is invited
to sign up on the Gym notice
Although the meet is a team
event for men, women and juniors
may enter the meet individually.
Age limit for juniors is 18 years.
Entries may be obtained at any
ski shop in town, or at the Noseeum's Cabin until 10 o'clock
Saturday night.
Housing accommodation enquiries may be obtained from Walter
Anderson, Housing Chairman of
the Tyee ski club, by phoning
MA 7421 during the evenings.
Other information can be obtained
from Fred Roots, Varsity Club
prexy, or Sandy Martin, team
Fresh snow has fallen since last
week-end and about two more
feet of snow is available. In other
words, skiing should be "perfect"
this week-end. The Kandahar
course is in the best condition
seen for many years and the
course record of 1:45 might be
easily broken.
UBC's HOOP FANS are prepping
for their first taste of college conference basketball as the Thunderbirds are slated to play host to
the first-place Whitman College
Missionaries in Vancouver's first
Northwest  Conference series.
The two cage clubs are slated to
swing into action Friday and Saturday nights at 8 o'clock, with
Jokers, cheer leaders, and a packed
house to start the basketball opening on the right foot.
Nig Borleske, Whitman's hoop
mentor, who has been working
for the Walla Walla college for 31
years, is bringing a 10-man squad
to UBC to meet the 'Birds, and
since both clubs favor the fast-
breaking college style, both games
should be torrid fixtures from the
opening whistle.
The Missionaries took over top
spot in the Northwest Conference
on January 7-8 as they took a pair
of tilts from the College of Idaho.
Both victories were lop-sided, the
Whitmanites winning 40-20 in the
opener and 57-20 in the second
Although undefeated In conference play, the Missionaries absorbed a pair of losses at the hands
cf Gonzaga's Bulldogs at Spokane
last week-end. The 'Zags won by
scores of 42-35 and 39-37.
Meanwhile the Thunderbirds are
getting ready for their second conference series, and will be out to
make sure that there will be.no
repetition of the "Thunderbird
Pearl Harbour," namely Willamette.
Although the British Columbia
quintet now lies low in fourth
spot ln the PNW loop, they'll move
Into a tie with Pacific University
for top spot if they take both tilts
from Whitman.
Among the entertainment features, the UBC Fencing Club plans
to exhibit the art of handling the
foils in an Inter-Club Fencing
Match to be put on between halves
of Saturday night's tilt.
Basketball enthusiasts are reminded to get their tickets early,
either at Percy Hick's Ticket Bureau, or at the AMS office. Students
showing their AMS passes will be
entitled to reduced prices of 25
cents for rush seats and 50 cents
Game time for both tilts will be
8 o'clock.
