Poor Senior Turn-Out
Causes Annulment Of
Isherwood's Election
• JOHNNY ROE and Hugh Ritchie, presidents of the Aggie
Undergrad and the Arts Undergrad respectively, have been
absolved of all blame in regard to the handling of the Arts-
Aggie ball.
Just exactly what happened at the special council
meeting may sound confusing to the average students but as
far as we know the meeting can be summed up as follows:
"*"—~~"—""""""■————~* (1)  j^ md jufchfc stated their
case and the councU informally
agreed that everything was cleared
up.
(2) An Informal discussion revealed that the council members
felt that the UBYSSEY had not
done right by their boy BUI in last
Friday's editorial.
(3) Foster Isherwood's election
to the position of president of the
Senior Class wss not recognised
by councU as only 10 members of
the class were present for the else*
tions.
OBEY REGULATIONS
Now as to Roe and Ritchie. It
was obvious that they had done
their part to obey councU regulations and that there waa no grounds
for holding them responsible. So
council just let it ride. It is quite
likely that a motion clearing the
men wlU be made at the regular
Monday night meeting of councU
just to keep the books straight
Anyhow Roe and Ritchie are
cleared.
The Arts-Aggie wtil now be held
Wednesday nigth although it means
that there is Uttle time for proper
pubUcity. Mr. Roe and Mr. Ritchie
made it clear that if the Arts-
Aggie is not a success they feel
it the responsibility of councU,
not theirs. This statement was
made to the UBYSSEY Monday
morning.
For  information in regards to
the UBYSSEY and Mr.'Mercer see
a letter from Mr. Mercer printed

• SCENES LIKE this will come to an end as the Clean-up Campaign gets under way this
week, and offenders are called up before the discipline committee. Paul Buck, Chairman
of the Clean-up Campaign says that coeds who do not conform to regulations will be made
to roll peanuts down the mall by their noses. What will happen to male offenders he did not
divulge.
ISSDay In Feb.
• INTERNATIONAL Student's Day will not be
held in November as was
previously announced. The
event is usually held sometime in February.
ISS day is in commemoration of
Czech student martyrs who were
slaughtered by the Nazis at the
University of Prague in 1939.
The Council wlU make an announcement as to the exact date
on which the day of remembrance
wlU be observed.
Senior Class Party
•   THERE    WILL be no Senior
Class Party this year unless
they elect a representative executive.
This measure waa put into effect at the last meeting.
On two occasions Hugh Ritchie
haa called for an election but a
mere handful of Seniors havs
shown up.
An executive was elected, but
as there waa no quorum, that >%
the majority of Seniors were not
represented, the CouncU haa refused to recognize them.
Social Service

WUS Style
Show Is Big
Success
• "BEST FASHION SHOW ever
seen in Vancouver," was the
frank opinion of some three hundred spectators at the big fashion
show sponsored by the Women's
Undergraduate Society which
took place Saturday afternoon hi
the Brock HaU.
Over seventy-five different outfits of all types were modeUed
by the co-ed mannequins.
Everything from housecoats to fur
coats were shown, including sport
ensembles, afternoon and date
dresses, and the more formal
styles.
The clothes shown were lent to
WUS by various down-town
stores. The "Technical Advisors" and directors of the show
were Eilaha Froatrup and Meryle
Shields, who have had experience aa professional models.
Commentator waa Doreen Dougan. Mary Mulvin, Margaret
Gardiner, Joyce Orchard, and
Daphne Ryan were In charge of
the arrangements. Proceeds from
the show estimated at 880.00,wiU
be donated to the Ambulance
Fund.
Mercer States His Case
UBYSSEY Holds Firm Stand
"In view of the editorial written by Andy Sneddon, the Boy
Hearst, in Friday's lrsue of '•ve
UBYSSEY I feel that certain nu
tr.kes and errors of omission
should be corrected.
Previous to the Students'
Council meeting of November 9th
the members of CouncU had received a letter from the treasurer
stating that he would feel obliged
to tender his resignation if councU did not support its regulation that budgets for social
events mr-st be in the treasurer'*
handg fourteen days before tho
date of the event.
Now Hugh Ritchie pnd John
Roe had fanned to have the Arts
Acnie Ball on November 18th.
Knowing, however, of Mr. Back-
n.an's letter and not wisliing to
force an L-sue they agreed on November 9th to move thc date to
November  25th.
Knowing their reason for placing the date on the 28th and sin
cerely believing that this date
was too late I moved that the
Arts Aggie BaU be held on tha
18th. I felt that a great number
of students were affected by the
Arts Aggie and that the last week
in November was too close to
exams. I also knew that the
Arts Aggie is traditionaUy held In
the third week of November and
that the Senior class party was
tentatively arranged for the 4th
week In November. I felt also*
that Backman's unfortunate letter should not be considered in
setting the date of a function
which was of great Interest too
large body of students.
In any case my motion that the
Arts Aggie be held on November 18th was passed by the majority of CouncU.
The motion was passed in eplte
of the fact that Rod Morris
pointed out that unless Backman
retracted his letter Backman
would be obUged to resign.
Morrb then asked Backman if
he would reconsider his letter if
Council were to ask Hugh Ritchie
and John Roe for their resignations, pointing out that he considered the two men guUty of Inefficiency.
In my opinion this was nothing more than an attempt by
Morris to save the face of Back-
man by thc sacrifice of John Roe
and Hugh Ritchie.
I took lt upon myself to defend
these men. I pointed out that
we had no right to ask these men
for their resignations without giving them a chance to speak for
themselves, that I considered
them first rate men and that in
any case they were in the clear
because they had agreed to
change the date to the 25th. I
suggested that they be asked to
appear before Council to defend
charges of inefficiency. The idea
of asking them for their resignation was repulsive to me, and, I
believe, to most of Council.
During the discussion Back-
man said he would waive the
threat contained in hto letter. I
should like to make it clear that
at no time did Backman speak
against Hugh Ritchie and John
Roe, neither directly nor by lm-
pUcatlon.
However, Morris persisted in his
charges against Hugh Ritchie and
John Roe and I moved that they
be brought before Council to defend themselves against these
charges.     Tno motion was passed
I hope this makes the situation
clear. Contrary to Snaddon I did
not charge these men. I defended
them and made a motion that allowed them to defend themselves.
That I did not charge these men
is a statement which the individual members of Council supported at Friday's special meeting. In
my opinion Morris's question to
Backman with regard to the resignation of   Hugh   Ritchie   and
John Roe was the most unfair,
thoughtless and unsportsmanlike
suggestion made in CouncU this
year, even more unjust than Sneddon's attempt to transfer the blame
to me.
I regret that I have had to bring
this matter up but I feel It necessary to clear myself of the unfounded charges printed in the
UBYSSEY.
Very truly,
BILL MERCER.
EDITORS NOTE: The Ubyssey
reiterates its stand taken in the
editorial in question. We would
Uke to point out that Mr. Back-
man's letter implying that he
would resign had been unconditionally withdrawn and to our
knowledge Mr. Morris had dropped
his suggestion at that. Then Mr.
Mercer made his motion to bring
Roe and Ritchie before the council.
The general idea of bringing Roe
and Ritchie before council waa
that council felt there had been
some inefficiency and wanted to
get to the bottom of it. The Ubyssey recorded that Mr. Mercer
made the motion and we wUl stick
to our story aa the actual fact of
the case.
However, Mr. Morris has accepted the blame and, although we do
not believe that anyone connected
with council would ever have agreed to sacrifice Roe and Ritchie
merely to save Backman's face,
there the blame shaU Ue.
If Mr. Mercer's higher motives
have been misinterpreted the Ubyssey apologizes. We are wUllng to
take his word for it that he was
merely upholding the white banners of fair play and that his noble
instincts are sadly abused. We
would Uke to point out that Mr.
Backman made no attempt to have
anyone sacrificed for his benefit,
his withdrawal of his letter was
done to facilitate council business
and he has suffered no loss of face
over the matter. Pag* Two
THE   UBYSSEY
•    From The Editor's Pen » » »
Clean-Up Drive
Every year it is necessary to remind the
student body that the campus is becoming
littered with chocolate bar wrappings, cigarette packages, and assorted junk. Every
year the Faculty committee and the Student
Council get together to campaign for a
cleaner campus. Every year the thing drags
along without a great deal of difference being made in the appearance of the university
grounds.
Starting yesterday the annual drive is
on again, and we would like to take this
opportunity of asking for the co-operation
of the student body, which is all that is needed to put the campaign across.
Scattered about the campus are waste
receptacles, and it is every bit as easy to
drop wrappings from your candy bar into
the tin, as it is to drop them on the lawns.
Down in the Caf if students, who have
finished, eating, would clean up the trays
or the paper bags which remain it would
not only make the place look less like the
aftermath of a bad storm but it would clear
the way for those who come in to eat their
lunch after you.
Out in tiie parking lot some of the worst
offenders gather daily to eat their lunch in
the cars. These carefree souls toss their
lunch papers out the windows and in no
time convert the parking lot into an eyesore.
What is even worse, in light of the rubber situation, some people persist in leaving
bottles in the parking lot with the result
that tires are endangered. There is a shortage of bottles for soft drinks and milk, and
it is only fair to ask that people who take
these bottles from the Caf should return
them when they are finished.
In the common rooms a situation similar ta that in the Caf appears every day at
12:30. In both places there are sufficient
waste baskets, conveniently placed, to handle
all the wrapping paper,
So it is really a case of thoughtlessness
on the part of those who use the facilities.
It is not too much to ask of good taste and
good upbringing, that the students take a
few seconds and place their left-overs in the
proper place. If every student does his or
her part then the campus clean-up problem
will be solved and the "most beautiful campus in Canada" will not look as though the
Sunday school picnic had just been held on
it.
Senior Class Party
At the special meeting of the Student
Council, held last Friday, Johnny Roe, President of the Aggie Undergrad and Hugh
Ritchie, President of Arts, were absolved of
the blame for the mess which has arisen
around the Arts-Aggie Ball arrangements
for the year.
Another case arose when Foster Isherwood, President of the Senior Class, appeared at the meeting to explain the arrangements for the Senior Class party. Mr. Isherwood has submitted no date and no budget
for the affair, because he was uncertain as
to the'date for the Arts-Aggie and did not
wish a conflict.
The councilors discovered in the discussion with Mr. Isherwood that about ten
people (the estimate is Mr. Isherwood's)
attended the class elections and it waa on
their vote that Mr. Isherwood was put into
office.
The council decided in light of the small
number who attended that Mr. Isherwood's
election would not be considered as legal,
and instructions were to be issued to the
Arts Undergrad president that another election must be held and that unless a reasonable number of Senior Students attend then
they will have no executive.
What is more important to the members
of the Senior Class is that their annual class
party will not be held until such time as
they can elect a recognized executive.
It is not a question of Mr. Isherwood's
ability, we hold no brief against him when
wo say that we feel that council's action was
justified.
The undergraduate body of this university has been organized so that the Council
merely handles the general business of the
Alma Mater Society leaving the detailed
work to the various groups that are organ
ized for the purpose. If the student body is
not sufficiently interested to attend meetings
of their class or of their faculty then there
is no reason to expect that these bodies will
function at all. If only 10 members of the
250 in the Senior Class are Interested enough
to turn out for a class election then we can
not see why they should be allowed to have
any functions.
Student Government on this campus is
a disgrace, large numbers of the students
attend no. meetings, never vote, and in general don't give a damn what goes on as long
as someone sees they get their party. Council only furthers this attitude when it suspends its own regulations to put on a dance
merely because some members of council
feel that the students should not pay the
price because executives have failed in their
job.
Council regulations are available to
everyone. It is up to class executives to see
that they are familiar with them and if
council is forced into an unpopular action
because it must defend its regulations then
our sympathies lie entirely with the councillors.
Postponement of the Senior Class party
will, undoubtedly, meet with disapproval of
all those affected. Yet the fault is not council's but the fault of the students themselves.
If they want their party then it is up to
them to show an interest by turning out for
their elections.
If council had shown a stiffer attitude
earlier, a good deal of the present trouble
might have been averted. As it is, action
of this type should bring the student body
to the realization that student government
and administration is the responsibility of
each student and not just that of nine people
elected each spring.
Social Service Workers
Wronged, Misunderstood
EDITOR'S NOTE—The following story is submitted
by a member of the Social Service Course. Assuming that
the majority of undergrads know little of the actual goings
on of this faculty, a delegation of prospective Social Service
workers approached the editor of The UBYSSEY with the
suggestion of running a series of columns on their work,
written by one of their members. We here present the first
of the series.
By F.M.S.
• "BUT YOU ARE NOT repulsive enough!" said a lowly
scienceman when I stated I was in social service. I
cringed inwardly and outwardly and gathering my wits about
me I tried—believe me I tried—to convince him that social
service students aren't "repulsive". After five minutes noble
effort, as he still stared at me unbelievingly and with a
scienceman's certainty of being right, I threw in the sponge
and retired.
This Is just one instance of what
I have had to put up with since
I became a social service student.
Now when someone asks me what
I am doing, I say it quietly and
quickly—step metaphorically back
two feet and wait for the blow:
It comes!
First there Is the sudden drop
of the lower lip—then the quick
blinking of the eyes, and I am asked to repeat what I have just
said. This done—the yrealiz?
they have heard rightly, and sadly shake  their heads and ask as
one asks a non-too-bright chUd:
"Do you like it!" If, as I do, I
say "yes" they jerk upright ,loolc
at me as If there Is no hope ana
quickly change the topic of conversation, as any mother would
do whose chUd ls entertaining a
visitor with an obscene story.
MISUNDERSTANDING
Because of this vast misunderstanding   of   socinl   service    stu
dents   there   is   as   dire   need   of
group work interpretation on the
campus as at Alexander Neighborhood House. A typical picture of a social worker, held by
many students, I held it myself,
is a dowdy old maid, dressed in
brown, wearing glasses, hair
pulled back, no make-up, and
with a firm set mouth, who is in
social service to get a little excitement out of her otherwisj
empty life, To dispel this misconception Varsity students should
see a gathering of Vancouver social workers. There are as
many glamorous girls and women
there as anywhere In Vancouver,
ver. True they are not dressed
to a "T," or are wearing mucn
make-up, but they must alway i
consider the important fact of
"rapport"   with  their  clients.
HAUL PEOPLE FROM GUTTER
A majority of people think social workers are a group of well
meaning females who haul others out of the gutter. If so we
could do valuable work in tho
vicinity of a well-known Vancouver hotel and we would noi
ntjci an extra year's education
to know what to do with them!
are psychologists, economist*,
nurses, lawyers, and military experts—in short we are social
service students! Now, please,
the next time you meet one of
us, don't stare or blink, but just
remember we were normal undergrads nnd leopards don't always  change their  spots!
LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Dear Editor,—
Our University has a rotten
reputation, and I believe I know
the reason why, It is the work
fo brainless individuals who neither have the breeding or the
common decency to uphold the
honour of the University. Such
individuals, who conspicuously
bring disgrace upon us should be
ejected from the University.
Manv Incidents on busses or street
cars, on the street, and elsewhere,
have all brought this question re-
occurring to my mind. But the
disgraceful conduct of individuals,
which I believe to be the same
individuals in every instance, put
on the most colossal show of their
blasphenous careers last Saturda^
at the ball game. Insulting and
unsanitary remarks and cat-call*
were hurled at the men of the
army who were opponents on the
field. When I think of the impression ot these men and other*
carried away with them, I shudder.   Where is their self respect?
"Dirty old army," "Go back to
school and learn some manners,"
You can't beat us, we're intellects," "Left, right, left, right,
about turn," and many other such
foul remarks were uttered, not in
an ordinary voice, but screahied
at lung length. Where is all this
wonderful UBC sportsmanship'?
I certainly haven't seen any.
Somebody tells me there is a
discipline committee around the
University. Well, Instead of wasting money and time sending registered letters to students for
wearing pink socks in the Brock,
why don't they get busy and
scourge some of these twerps.
Who are these blisters, and why
don't they do something about
this horrible situation? If they
look around for some of these
lads who haven't yet reached the
draft age, and a few of those who
are medically unfit, I am positive
they'll find a large percentage of
these individuals of whom I speak.
You can't answer these questions,
Mr. Editor, but I'm sure those
students who respect their university will take the matter into
their own hands.
—Elliot Emerson.

Clean-Up Campaign Covers Campus This Week
Caf Worst Offenders
Says Morris In
Letter To Students
•   AN ENERGETIC campaign is being launched to remove
the horrors of the Caf, quad and campus.
The Caf is the concentration point. Lunch-papers litter

LETTER FROM MORRIS
"To The Members of the AMS"
This year the Students' CouncU,
through the efforts of a Committee
appointed by them, is going to
clean up the University Campus.
This Campaign wiU not be centred on any specific building but will
apply to the Campus as a whole.
The reason for the Campaign is
that considerable criticism has always arisen from visitors, members
of the Faculty and from the students themselves regarding' the
throwing of lunch wrappers, cigarettes and wastepaper about the
Campus. *
Appeals of this nature have been
made in the past but this year we
Intend to carry put a prolonged and
strenuous Campaign, not merely In
the Cafeteria (which is the worst
offender) but on the whole University Campus.
The Campaign starts today and
wlU be continued until satisfactory
results are attained. If the Committee does not receive the desired
co-operation it should be left to
their discretion to draw up rules
and regulations and to impose fines
for any violations. It is my beUef,
however, that there should be no
reason for violations, as each and
every student present at the University should have its best interests at heart.
Realizing the need for such a
Campaign, let us aU co-operate to
such an extent that in the future
there wiU never be the need for a
similar Campaign.
Yours very truly,
The Alma Mater Society,
RODNEY MORRIS,
President.

SENIOR CLASS PARTY
Oh yea, Mr. Isherwood. How did
he get into this? WeU he came to
council to explain why no date
had been set, and no budget turned in for the Senior Class Party.
Mr. Isherwood stated that he had
been waiting for council to get the
Arts-Aggie settled before he proceeded. He also estimated during
his explanation that there had been
about  ten  people  present for his
election.
Bearing Mr. Isherwood no ill-
wlU, council decided that ten
people was not sufficiently representative and until such time as a
proper election can be held, council wiU not recognize the Senior

Mr, Isherwood is then relieved of

Reviewing
* The Plays
By LUCY BERTON
• PREVIEWERS of the
Players' Club Christmas
plays nearly always get criticized themselves by members of the'cast, members of
the Club generally and
members of the Faculty because they almost invariably
"pan" the performance.
This year wiU probably be no
exception. I saw the plays on student night, always the worst night
of the performance, but neverthe-
, less I will have to criticize them
from that performance.
If aU tiie plays had been chosen
as weU and acted as convincingly
as waa "Good Night Caroline", I
would have nothing but praise for
the programme. But unfortunately
such was not the case.
POOR CHOICE
My first criticism is of the choice
of plays. Many of these young
actors have had Uttle or no experience on the stage, and a weak plot
does not tend to help a player
make a success of his performance.
"A Rogue In Bed" left the audience with a let-down feeling in
spite of the vaUept and praiseworthy acting of Allan Alnsworth,
who as the incorrigible "Rogue",
held the interest of the audience.
The main fault in the acting in
this was that aU those taking part
tended to drop then- accents and
fall into ordinary EngUah. And
when they did put on any accent
it was anything but Welsh. In my
opinion lt would have been better
to have left any trace of accent
out altogether.
SHOWS PROMISE
Blackie Lee, as the Rogue's
daughter and accompUce shows
promise as an actress, carrying her
part with assurance and ease.
The group both in coming on
the atage and leaving it was awkward and unwleldly, and whUe
on the stage and not actually in
the action, they did not seem to
know what to do.
If, in leaving the stage, they had
speeded up the action, it would
have gone more smoothly. But
here again the play Itself was t
fault.
Drama, for very amateurish amateurs, very seldom goes over.
"In The Mist" was no exception
last Thursday night. Jim Wilson,
as the superstitious Bayne, was
not only unconvincing but painful
Jean Christie and Sandra Gordon
both took their parts weU, although the voice of the latter
sounded rather young for her
make-up.
Harry Turney as the murderer
was Just, sufficiently villanous.
This play's main drawback was its
shallow plot and it too-dramatic
atlc conclusion "Fools! fools! fools!"
—not only melodramatic but also
unnatural.
REDEEMING FEATURE
"Good Night CaroUne" was the
redeeming feature of the evening.
The Players' Club Is to be commended for always putting the
best play last.
Margie Beale is a born actress,
and her part in this play as the
frivolous young wife fitted her to
a T. Even the most hardened burglar could be conceived as weeping
on her shoulder over her inconsequential hardships.
Art Jones, too, looked and acted
easily the part of the hen-pecked
husband. The whole cast seemed
to feel at home on the stage, and
the play flowed along quickly and
smoothly.
This play verifies my accusation
at the beginning of this review
that the fault of the Yuletide productions is very often with the
author and not the actor. The audience wUl not enjoy the production if the play is weak or is outside the scope of the actors.

Thunderbirds Score Third Successive League Victory
'Birds Prove Too Strong
Scorers for Stacy Crew
Scores: Varsity SO, Stacys 34;
Next Game: Varsity vs. Shores
Wednesday, 7:30, in Gym
• VARSITY'S BASKETBALL Thunderbirds continued
their winning ways last Saturday,- when they walloped
Nate Singer's Stacy crew 50-34. The triumph was Varsity's
htird straight of the current season and already, in two
weeks, they have won more games than the 1941-42 Varsity
team did in five months.
Shores Will Give Tough Game
Tomorrow night, at 8:80, our
heroes take on the highly-rated
Shores quintet in the Varsity
gym. The latter club is the only
team which haa not felt tho striking power of the 'Bird offense.
Shores wtil be the toughest
club that Vanity haa yet faced.
The JeweUers, in their only start
of the season defeated Stacya 32-
28. As mentioned above, Varsity
defeated the Shoemen 50-34. In
other words, Thunderbirds won
by a margin of 18 points to
Shores 4. However, in their
game, Shores were without the
efficient services of the illustrious
George McConneU, who, if you'U
recall, averaged 18 points per
game last year.
McConnell wUl be decked out
in Shores' livery Wednesday
night, and, If he'a hot, Bart Edwards' boys wUl be hard to boat.
Varsity, to get back to Saturday's massacre, owed their win
to accurate shooting. Tho Birds
were actually outshot by the
Shoemen 84 to 89 In attempted
field goals and 24 to 19 in attempted free shots. However,
they sank 50 per cent, more of
both their field goals and free
shots than Stacys did.
Van Vliet Uses Strategy
Coach M. L. Van VUet repeated
his last Wednesday's strategy of
alternating half his team with
the other half, playing each squad
a quarter at a time. In the first
quarter, the starting lineup consisted of Kermode, Barton, Robertson, Franklin and Johnson.
These five out-hustled the
Stacy crew to give the other
squad (Bakken, Wescott, Sykes,
Stlllwell and Yorke) an 11-8 lead
to work on In the second quarter.
The      latest    quintet,    led    by
Art Stilwell out-scored their op
ponents 7-6 to lead 18-12 at the
half. The first team returned
for the third session and remained for the fourth quarter as
the Shoemen began.to threaten.
Harry Franklin went off on
fouls In the third quarter, to bo
followed by Paddy Wescott. Wescott played the rest of the third
quarter, but three quick personal
fouls at the start of the fourth
quarter, combined with his second quarter personal, sent him
to join Franklin on the Varsity
bench. Art Stilwell relieved
Paddy and finished out the game.
Kermode and Robertson Star
HARRY KERMODE
BUI Anderson waa outstanding
for Stacys with 13 points, and for
the second straight game has
been the only Shoemen to reach
double figures.
Harry Kermode, Sandy Robertson, and Art Stilwell starred for
the 'Birds. Kermode seems to
have snapped out of bis scoring
slump, In which he had sank only
one field goal out of thirteen
field-goal attempts. Sandy Robertson scored thirteen points to
SANDY ROBERTSON
tie with Bill Anderson and Harry
Kermode as the high scorer of the
night.
Robertson, by the way, leads the
Thunderbirds in scoring in their
first three games with 25 points.
Art Stilwell played only half the
game, but managed to snag nine
points as his contribution to the
Bird scoring victory. There are
few players in the league that
look smoother on the basketball
court than slick Mr. Stilwell.

Gridders Go Down Fighting
# Basket
Banter
By MAURY SOWARD
t FOR THE PAST WEEK or so,
reports have been flying
around town about the doings of
four Varsity freshmen who have
been turning out with an Intermediate A basketball team going
by the moniker of Calders Olympics. Since no story has yet been
written giving the complete dope
on the whole business, we foal
that it would be appropriate at
this time to enlighten you with
the sordid detaUs (besides we've
got   to fill up space).
ONCE UPON A TIME
We-U-Ul, it seems that once upon a time there were four boys,
named Don, Pat, Marty and
George. These four lived in tho
same district, grew up together,
and everything was just peachy.
Then coUege, as it must to all
bright young men, came one day
to Don, Pat, Marty and George.
Let it be said, before we go
further, that Don, Pat, Marty and
George also played together in
various sports in general and basketball in particular. When Don,
Don, Pat, Marty and George came
to University, they wished to continue to play basketball.
UBC BEARS UGLY HEAD
As you know, any Dons, Pats,
Martys, and Georges that come
to UBC with the Intention of
playing basketball among other
things, are supposed to play their
basketball for a UBC team. They
promise to do the same In the registration book they filled out that
all Dons, Pats, Martys , and
Georges fill out when they come
to UBC.
WeU, Don, Pat, Marty, and
George were perfectly wUllng to
play for a UBC team, BUT, Don,
Pat, Marty, and George could not
turn out to practices.' Not turning out to practices, ls a sin that
basketball coaches can be very
stuffy about, and any Don, Pat,
Marty, and George that do not
turn to any UBC practices do not
stastand any chance of making
any UBC team.
SAINTLY STUDENTS
Tiie reason for Don, Pat, Marty,
and George not being able to turn
out to any UBC practices la because the parents of Don, Pat,
Marty, and George would not allow them to do same.
"Your studies come first," cried
Don, Pat, Marty, and George In
saintly tones.
However, stiU wishing to play
basketball, Don, Pat, Marty, and
George decided to offer their services to some team that would not
make them turn out to practice.
ENTER LITTLE NAPOLEON
tA the tune, it seems, there was
a team managed by Uncvle Ira C.
Jones, also called "little Napoleon" and "Spurgie") which went
by the name of Calders Olympics.
Calders at the time were suffering from a shortage of good bast
ketbaU played and suffering
from a shortage of good basketball players is a situation that
Uncle Ira C. Jones (also called
"Little Napoleon" and "Spurgie")
is not accustomed to.
So-o-o, Uncle Ira C. Jones (also
called "Little Napoleon" and
"Spurgie"), hearing of the situation that Don, Pat, Marty, and
George were In, promptly signed
Don, Pat, Marty, and George for
his,   Uncle   Ira   C.   Jones   (also
called "Little Napoleon" and
"Spurgie") team.
GLEAM OF HOPE
All,   perhaps   .would   have  gone
well with Don, Pat, Marty, and
American Team Proves
Worth Against Seasoned
Army Ack-Ack Players
Next Game: Varsity vs* Boeings
Tomorrow, 7:30 p*m,, Athletic Park
•   SUFFERING THEIR first defeat of the season at the
hands of the Army ex-Sarnia gridders, the Thunderbird
team lost but was not beaten by a score of 15-6, in Saturday
afternoon's game.
Said Coach Farina, "I'm proud
of those kids, they're playing the
best baU against those veterans
that they've ever played . . . most
of those kids are just one step out
of high school."
FIGHT FOR TALLY  ~
Beaten 15-0 at the breather, the
fighting 'Birds came back, gritted
their teeth and marched down the
field with a brilliant succession of
plays to score their only tally of
the game.
Plaudits for the Varsity tally go
to wiry Douie Reld, who carried
the baU from the Varsity fifty-
yard line over the Army pay dirt
In three sensational broken field
runs.
LINEMEN SHINE
Through holes made by some of
the best Une work this year, it was
mainly Guman and Reld who were
responsible for Varsity's holding
its own and more in the second
half.
It was really the line which saved Varsity from a more crushing
defeat in the Saturday feature. Led
by Mattu and Sweatman the linemen were opening holes for the
slippery Reid, and the charging
Guman, which brought the 'Birds
within reaching distance of the
line on two other occasions.
George and Uncle Ira C. Jones
(also called "Little Napoleon"
and "Spurgie") with npbody
finding out that Don, Pat, Marty,
and George were playing for the
team of Uncle Ira C. Jones (also
caUed "Little Napoleon" and
"Spurgie"), with nobody finding
out as the league that the team of
Uncle Ira C. Jones (also caUed
"Little Napoleon" and "Stur-
gle") ls a rather obscure organisation.
ALAS!
However, the team of Uncle Ira
C. Jones (also caUed "Little Napoleon" and "Spurgie"), ■tarring
Don, Pat, Marty, and George proceeded to go out and waUop tne
UBC Fro«h team and the UBC
Varsity team. This outrageous ac
tion came to the ears of the dis-!
cipiUne committee, vTRose duty it1
is to discipline oppenders like
Don, Pat, Marty, and George.
Well, to make a long story
short (heh, heh, heh), Don,
Pat, Marty, and George were
committee, and given a lecture
on what they may and may not
do.
Don, Pat, Marty, and George
were told that they could maybs
play for thc team of Uncle Ira
C. Jones (also called "little Napoleon" and "Spurgie") if they,
(Don, Pat, Marty, and George)
play for thc team of Uncle Ira C.
Jones (also called "iLttle Napo-
eon" and "Spurgie").
I
HAPPY ENDING
This Don, Pat, Marty, and
George did and at the present
moment are anxiously waiting for
said permission to be forthcoming
along with Uncle Ira C. Jonet
(also "Little Napoleon" and
"Spurgie").
Whether or not, Don, Pat, Marty, and George will get permla-
slon to play for the team of
Uncle Ira C. Jones (also caUed
"Little Napoleon" and "Spurgie")
is another story, (Heaven forbid).
SWEATMAN INSPIRED
Burly Hank Sweatman, tackle,
was the unsung hero of the game.
In on almost every tackle, Sweatman played an Inspired game, completing two passes and knocking
holes in the Army line for the
backfield gains.
Varsity's next grid start will be
next Wednesday night, 7:30 in Athletic Park against Boeings.
The Boeing squad haa already
been defeated by the Thunderbirds
at the Homecoming contest, both
however have improved markedly
since that date.
Varsity, however, is expected,
after last Saturday's fighting show,
to easily take the plane-builders.
PEACOCK HURT
The line-up wiU probably start
without husky Bob Peacock, who
was injured on Saturday. It was
feared at first that Peacock had
fractured his pelvis, and he was
removed by ambulance, the injury,
however, was less serious.
Other injuries were sustained:
by Reid, whose shoulder was dislocated, and by Mattu, who possibly cracked a rib. Reid, however,
returned to score Varsity's only
tally, and should be starting on
Wednesday. Mattu, also is expected to play Wednesday night. Mattu
also returned to the game after
his Injury.
Farina predicts another razzle-
dazzle game on Wednesday, hopes
that Students wiU turn out to the
pass feature to see Varsity's newest sport.

It looks as though Coach De-

nursing a nice lead. However,
in the second half, Gregory-Price
swarmed aU over Varsity. Tiie
reason? The Birds had burned
themselves out In the first half.
AMERICAN BALL
Coach Elefthery sent the boys
out In the next game (against
Calders), with Instructions to
play a slowed-down version of
the Senior A team's "American

•   LAST SATURDAY, the
Varsity  Soccer Team
won their first game of the
year against Bonds by a
score of 3-1. Showing some
of the results of tht ftsf
coaching of Lorrie Baker, it

win.

shot by Norm Tupper. Then just
before half-time Frankle Adams
made it 2-0 for Varsity on a
with Gordy Johnstone.

lifted one between the posts.

pace all the way.

Roach, Norm Tupper, BUI WaUcer, Gordon Johnston, Jimmy
Morton, Frank Adams, Lei Mor-

smeared the Frosh 30-25. Perhaps, it wasn't a smearing as the
Frosh almost caught their opponents in the dying minutes, but
it certainly was a contrast to the
other Varsity games. Thursday,
the Birds played their best games
of the season and unquestionably
deserved their win over Sparlings-
WILD BILL
Bill Hooson led Varsity in their
triumph over Sparlings, ringing
up eleven points and earning
high-scoring honours for the
night. However, another feat of
"Wild" Bill's deserves mention ns
it is much more remarkable. He
did not get a single foul. Amaz-
ln' but confoozln'.
