 Students' Feet, Gas Rations, Hard Hit by Street Car Strike
'■
• VANCOUVER'S first railway
strike in 25 years continues
unabated today as students become accustomed to the "normalcy" of cycling, skating, walking
yxl thumbing rides to lectures.
Classes are beginning to fill up
H'ain after four days of scattered
Ktendance. Many labs and lectures have been unofficially cancelled, but the only definite action taken has b?en in connection
with 8:10 English I lectures.
Folia,/ing a statement from the
president's office, English I professors advised their classes that
freshmen would not be expected
to attend the, early morning sessions.
Holding of other lectures and
labs depends on the ability of instructors to reach the university.
All COTC and UNTD parades
have been canceled until the day
jjlBl^s;
<?
/
transportation resumes by 9 a.m.,
or until further notice.
Eight students pitched in to help
Manager Frank Underhill in thc
Caf Tuesday when it became apparent that the short-staffed eatery could not open without additional help.
The Cafeteria opened more than
an hour late the first day of the
strike and has been operating,
with some student help, on a re-

No official word on extension
of sessional fees has been received
from the Bursar's office.
Numerous students are peddling
to classes on bicycles unused since
school days. Bicycles fill the racks
and line power-house and bus
stop walls. Evidence of their long
idleness is thc expired 1943 and

They say that this kind of vehicle
is very easy to operate on the

in time to enjoy the transportation
difficulties.

Many students copped thc family auto this week, forcing thc old -
man to hike to work. At one
time more than 175 cars were
counted in the student, parking

At least four coeds took their
life in their feet by roller skating
to Varsity. Most gave up after one
trip.

To add to Frank Underhill'*
worries, there was a minor flood
yesterday, Friday, in the caf.
As many of the hikers will recall there was a heavy rain on
Thursday night and somehow the

of water on the floor.

Robeson Thrills UBC Students
HUSHED AUDIENCE HEARS
FAMOUS NEGRO ARTIST
•  PAUL ROBESON came to UBC Thursday, sang, talked,
and proved that his personality is a big enough drawing
card to offset the street car strike.
r.'.i a  capacity   audience   spell- 	
bound while he told of his search
for "fredom of  the  people"  and
Ushcd out  against   racial   prejudice.
"I come from a suffering people,"
he said. "I worked through school
ud coUege and I feel I must be
on the side of those who are suffering. I come straight from the
' nnki of labor."
He spoke of his early life when
be was "always conscious of some
thing there blocking the way" and
"avenues were closed." He heard
•bout the freedom of the people
and »et out to find it.
' "Gaining this freedom looked
hopeless considering the history
behind the world, but we are going in the right direction."
Mr. Robeson traced steps in the
freedom of the people from the
"divine right of Kings period, and
aid: '
•How the masses of people are
Hying that they must bo Included
in all the rights and wealth of thc
raid.
In Canada this takes the form
of conflicts between management
and labor."
When governments are being
formed after the war "There will
be no room for people who can-
not see history."
"People who won't admit improvements and equality of thc
masses we must call Fascists."
He named men like McCormick,
Hearst, and the "right wing" a3
examples.
"There are people who come up
to me and say: 'Mr. Robeson—our
present democratic set-up cannot
be improved. There must be 20
million unemployed after the
war,."
"They arc so wrong."
Speaking directly on racial prejudice, Mr. Robeson pointed out
that there is no racial prejudice
in Russia, alt-.ough the racial differences are there.
'This is tied to the question of
poverty," he said. "Poverty is un-
Mccssary   with   the   productive
powers and tremendous wealth of
the world."
''The settlement rests with you,"
he told the students.
Changes will come slower after,
the war in Canada and tho United
States, he maintained, because the
war is not so close to home. Officials in office will have a long
term if they can see a high level
for the masses.
"Canada can exert a great in-
fulence on democratic belief," he
said, since Canadians have a democratic background.
Music of different countries is
much the same, he said. People
in Eorope ask frequently for negro
songs as they are much the same
as their native songs.
Mr. Robeson was introduced by
the president of UBC, and thanked
by Dr. G. G. Sedgewick, head of
the department of English. Mr.
Robeson's appearance was sponsored by the Llterery and Scientl-
ic Executive.
Mr. Robeson sang three negro
spirituals, including "All God's
Chillun Got Shoes," and sang in
English and Russian. "Sleeping
Darling." He concluded by reading "Little Black Boy," a poem by
William Blake.

YearbookNeeds
More Help As
Deadline Nears
•    LIVKV.'IUE   students   are   still
needed  to help  with  th_> mo4
important publication on tlic campus:  the Totem.
Those interested should come to
thc publications office in the
Brock any day next week and ask
for John Green. No previous experience is necessary to help with
this year's Totem. There are still
some important editorial positions
to be filled.
No Totem 'has been published
for the last two years because of
shortages of both materials and
staff. However, this year a larger
and better annual will be published.
This year's Totem will have 300
pages, an increase of 30 pages over
the last two editions, both of
which won the coveted All-Amcrican award of the National
Scholastic Press Association.

Blood Donor Drive
Sponsors Pep Meet
•   NEED OF BLOOD for those wounded on active service
overseas will be described by two veterans in a Red
Cross Blood Donor pep-meet Monday noon in the Auditorium.
Other speakers will be President Norman A. M. MacKenzie, Chancellor E. W. Hamber, and Dr. C. A. Lamont.
M.D.
While thc meet will be of a
more serious nature than the standard run of Pep-meets because of
the very nature of thc cause, Ted
Chambers, president of the War
Aid Council nnd organizer of tho
drive on the campus, said that the
entertainment will be grander
than usual.
Music will be provided by Richmond Hyslop and the Nabob "Harmony House'' orchestra. Dorwin
Baird will MC the programme,
and fo:i;;.'i will be warbled by Suzanne, Pat Morgan, the Nabob-
ettes and Bob.
Chambers said that boxes for
the reception of blood donation
pledges arc situated in the Caf,
the Arts, Aggie, and Applied Science   buildings.
A note for women donors: women who donate their blood will
be excused from one hour Red
Cross Rooms, and one hour gym
work, with the following limitations:
Women taking home nursing or
first aid cannot be excused because of exaininatton requirements.
Women can be excused from
gym work only If it falls on the
day of donation or on the day
following.
Those who wish to be excused
from the Red Cross work must fill
out a form when they give their
blood, and deposit it at one of the
following placets:
1 .If they wish to be. excused
from Red Cross Rooms the form
must be left with the Dean of women.
2 .If they wish to be excused
from gym thc form must be left
at the gymnasium office.
3. If they wish to be excused
from gym and Red Cross Rooms,
the form must be left with the
Dean of Women. *
War Veterans Ask
Book Cooperation
From Students
• FIRST YEAR students arc re.
quested by the University
Book Store to lend or share their
Mathematics, English, and Chemistry texts to Veterans on the campus.
Som; of thc veterans interviewed
reported that they were in dire
need of Geometry and Trigonom-
tery text-books and in particular,
a copy of "Bacchae." Since the
"Bacchae" is a first term text
and no longer needed by students,
thc book store suggests that those
students who are through with it
sell it to the veterans.
About fifteen copies are needed
at once. A fairly substantial supply of other English texts are a-
vailable at the book store. The
Chemistry text is a new book and
is not readily available.
It will be at least two weeks
before the new supplies for the
book store arrive. The store
would appreciate it if the students
would co-operate with the veterans in this temporary, book shortage.
FORESTERS ASK
FACULTY BE
ESTABLISHED
• FORESTRY Club is presenting
a brief to the Royal Forestry
Commission on Monday, Jan. 15.
The brief asks for the establishment of a full Faculty of Forestry
similar to faculties at Oregon and
Washington.
Pointing out that practical instruction is of the utmost importance in forestry the club recommends that the Pitt Lake Forest
be developed in order to offer
facilities for student instruction
and research.
If already registered, answer these two additional
questions.

THE UBYSSEY
. . . • JANUARY 13,194S
The Magnificent Farce
Particularly amusing, among th^more
humorous items of Thursday's Arts issue,
was the terse statement in Mr. Campbell's
editorial, "It was just bad luck that the first
street car strike since 1919 should happen
this week. All the woes of a pefsecbted
Arts executive are summed up in that plaintive resignation to fate. Everything was
stacked up against them, from the beginning
to the end. They didn't have a chance.
The troubles started at the beginning
of the great revival. There was the snake
parade, the fight and the hose incident. B,ut
the Artsmen had begun well anyway, and
with great courage they decided to carry on.
They planned an Arts Week. This was the
week which dribbled by today.
The executive ran into more trouble
when they began to plan their program for
the week, the street cars weren't running.
They had a lovely program of events drawn
up. Everybody said so—even council—but
unfortunately the program conflicted with
the social calendar somewhat, and would
have committed what council believed to
be mild mayhem.
So council went at their program like
nine hungry dogs and tore it to pieces with
their usual thoroughness. "Ruination",
moaned the Artsmen, as the tug of war fell
by the way side, and the informal at the
Commodore moved to the campus.
But the Artsmen were not dismayed,
although defeatist murmurings were heard
in very high places. Arts Week would be
held anyway, come hell, fire or high water.
That terrible trio of physics didn't show up
as Arts Week rasped to a start, but neither
did the solemn-faced little men in the black
caps, who we now find are so essential to
this university, the men of the B.C. Electric.
Let us call it the magnificent farce. For
it was magnificent and it was a farce. The
sleeping bear made a marvelous attempt to
see the world, but was resoundingly kicked,
where it hurts the most, right back into its
cultural lair.
But hope remains in those optimistic
words of Mr. Campbell, "Despite these difficulties, we have carried on in the hope
that this beginning will lead to something
constructive for the future".
Modern Abe Lincolns
The Ubyssey seldom attempts to tell
the administration how to run the University. This reticence comes from previous
disastrous interferences. We would like to
take issue with the administration, however,
on its decision to keep the University open
during the street car strike.
It did not concern us* yery much until
we saw the long lines of students walking
to and from Varsity in the rain, until we had
our lectures messed up as professors rearranged courses, or cancelled lectures and
labs.
A good many UBC students were turned into modern Abe Lincolns this week.
They were forced to struggle for their education as some of them have never struggled
before.
Whether or not this was tho idea behind
the administration's decision we do not
know. If so, it was an interesting experiment,
but we wonder just how long this helter-
skelter education can continue.
We are quite certain that the B.C.
Electric employees, the company, the war
labor boards, and especially Ottawa, can
last much longer than the students who live
any distance at all from the University,
which includes approximately 2900.
people and things
by Cal Whitehead
•   SOUTHPAWS are human beings.
They believe in individual freedom and
collective bargaining too. They have many
of the qualities which are considered helpful
ond right to tho average student. They can
also walk out to the classes when the street
cars and busses stop running.
They can do many
things as well as the ordinary run-of-the-mill student
on the campus: the other
things they do better. But
even considering these excellent qualities—just a few
out of many and in no par-
^ ticular    order,    left-handed
M people   are   persecuted   to
''A within   an   inch   of   their
degrees.
But still, southpaws are human beings.
They are just not understood, that is
all. They are set apart from the rest of the
human beings on the campus and they are
set apart from the professors, too. Another
thing, the most serious of all, they are set
apart from their desks.
Wc shall take just any old southpaw
on the campus. We shall call him Lcftie.
We shall nose into his private life and
follow him into one of his lecture rooms.
Just any old lecture room.
There he is coming now, carrying his
books in his right hand while he dexterously
handles a cigaret with his left.  He smiles
at us in a friendly manner as we eye him
up and down. Our manner is rude, but that
doesn't phase him; he continues to smile and
we continue to look at him in a rude tone of
voice.   He seems to be a different sort of
human being
He passes now and enters the open
doorway of a dingy, low-slung building. Up
a short flight of stairs and along the hall he
goes. Into a room he pops and seats himself
at a desk which he quickly selects from
among those on the left side of the room.
The lecture is starting now and Leftie
doesn't look very happy. Perhaps he has
family troubles.
"Last day we were discussing . . . . "
begins the professor.
There is a mad scramble for books.
Out of the scramble emerges Leftie
complete with notebook and pencil. His
pencil is clutched firmly in his left hand
and he is ready and waiting in what, we
suppose is his writing position.
His notebook is perched at an extremely
odd angle to the tablet-sHze desk plate. His
right arm is resting along the rest of the
desk plate, his right hand steadying lys
writing paper.
Tho actual movement is done in one
movement—hut it is complicated. Starting
from the shoulder, tho arms descend towards
the floor and moves out away from tho body.
There it starts a full-scale pincers attack on
the ill-fated notebook. Tho pencil descends
mercilessly on thc book as Leftie swings his
wrist towards him, aims the pencil point
down to the paper and proceeds to attack
without quarter, the blunt end of his pencil
making wicked flourishes towards the professor.
The lecture drags on.
The strain on us is unbearable, for we
see that Leftie is suffering.   He begins to
squirm. He begins to droop.
But Leftie still has some fight' left in
him. He spins around in his seat and begins
to write on the desk on his left. It is conveniently empty.
The professor spots this and decides
that something must be done about it.
Ho begins to put detailed drawings on
thc blackboard.  Lcftie is really taking
it now. To be more specific, his neck is
really taking it. Every few seconds he
has to take a right hand glance and his
neck muscles are aching and his arm
is sore.
There is only one other out for Leftie
now and there is over 15 more minutes of
this gruelling lecture left.   Will this new
position enable him to hold out?
Leftie is determined now. He makes a
complete about turn and sticks his right foot
and leg through the little space on the right
hand side of the desk. His left foot and leg
he points in the same general direction. Now
the situation is reversed. The muscles on
the left side of his neck are killing him now.
We realize now that he is only human
and we sympathize with him. A person who
can go through that slow but sure way to
death deserves a little help. We shall help
him and his fellows in their fight against the
tyranny of the maority.
We shall organize the right-handers to
help the left-handers in their drive for left-
handed desks in the immediate post-war
period.
• parliamentry
forum
By ROSEMARY HODGINS
• THE OLD saying that the
Parliamentary Forum is older
than the Players' Club or vice
versa is still not proven. But all
are agreed that these two clubs are
the oldest on the campus.
The Forum has a very worthwhile mission 6ince its practice
of employing parliamentary procedure in its debates makes familiar to many one of the littler
known cornerstones of democratic
life.
Contrary to many beliefs, the
Forum aims to promote debating on
the campus end many chances ore
given to the enterprising student.
The McGoun Cup Debates, main
feature of the club's agenda, began
in 1934 and have continued each
year with the exception of last
ycar.
From the beginning, these debates have involved the four western Canadian colleges who comprise the Western Universities Debating League. The secretary-general in Winnipeg supposedly negotiates arrangements.
To my mind, the Mock Parliaments provide more interest for
the greatest number of students.
Begun ln 1942-43, there was only
ono that ycar, tout two over slnco.
These Spring and Fall Mock
Parliaments necessitate party caucuses which welcome as many
students as may wish to participate.
At these meetings the party leaders are elected.
At a still larger gathering, the
party leaders present their various
platforms and whoever receives
the majority of votes becomes the
"Prime Minister."
At the Parliaments themselves,
usually the speeches introducing
bills are the only ones prepared
so that anyone who speaks will
have a spontaneously provoked
flavour in his words.
Although individual feelings
may be exhibited at the Mock Parliament.;, the Forum i.s a neutral
organization, having no decided
political leanings. Indeed, it trys
to be aloof from such feelings as
they always seem to prove complicating.
Naturally, since present problems present the most controversial possibilities, they are the most
valuable for the Forum's purposes.
To :-tmuilatc the Freshman class
intc'icet. the Frosh Debates between I'lU' and Victoria Collcj;.'
were   n;  tititteft   ia   1911.
In both the McGoun Cup Debates and the Frosh Debates, four
.'.peakers are finally chosen, two
of whom stay here and support the
affirmative of thc resolution and
two of whom travel, upholding
tho negative.
With no malicious intent, it has
nevertheless been noted that a-
round election-time, the majority
of candidates vehemently declare
their affiliation with the Parlia
mentary Forum. But why not?
For the Forum is one of the most
worthwhile of the extra-curricular activities.
This ycar under the able leadership of Jim "I am here'' Wilson,
the Forum has embarked on a
schedule of weekly debates which
give double tho opportunity to the
budding public speaker.
Any student may lead a debate,
that Ls, be "Prima Minister."
At these debates, usually tho
"Prime Minister" and the "Leader of the Opposition" present their
arguments which may be pursued
by any member of the audience of
the "House."
These prove to be very entertaining, especially when one member spcakes for the government
and then for the opposition.
Women are urged to enter Into
the club's activities but unfortunately, their fair faces are too seldom seen.
Within a very few years, gavel
club pins may be extended to any
active member of the Forum, that
is, a student who volunteers an
argument at least once a term.
At present, awards for meritous
debating are made In the form
of gold, silver and bronze pins,
usually in April. Our AMS President, Dick Bibbs, proudly, wc
hope,, sports his gold award, a
wreath with Parliamentary Forum on it and o bar across with
Debates Inscribed on it.
With Jim Wilson as President
and an energetic executive, we
hope the Forum will finally be recognized for its true worth ond
will foster a few more promising
debators and filibusters.
REDSHIRT SEES ARTSWEEK;
GIVES OPINIONS ON SAME
By BRUCE "SLIGHTLY-PREJUDICED" BEWELL
•   WELL IT'S almost over. ,
Arts Week' staggered slowly from cancelled game to
cancelled pep meet to cancelled debate to LSE-promoted
Arts-claimed personal appearance of Paul Robeson to cancelled dance. Of course the executive cannot be held responsible for the actions of the street railwaymen, and they
did put out the last issue of the Ubyssey. The fact that it
was not THE last issue of the Ubyssey is not their fault
either.
I
■,
Most of the difficulties experienced were largely due to the
absence of organized transportation. After all, just because the
auditorium was packed at Paul
Robeson's performance doesn't
prove that the other features
would be well attended.
Then there was THE ARTS U-
BYSSEY. In spite of almost overwhelming difficulties, Sid Flavelle and her staff did their dam-
dest to put out a paper. They did,
too. Tho paper produced is probably the first special edition of a
college paper anywhere that
would meet with the approval of
the discipline committee.
In short, it fairly reeked of culture (and I use the term loosely).
Even President N. A. M, MacKenzie and Dick Bibbs wrote congratulatory messages for this sterling publication.  Other prominent
artsmen stuck out Uieir respectin
necks and made extravajttt
claims on behalf of their faculty
Good show, but claims should be
backed by fact.
One thing that hit the eye wm
a little item by Dr. S. A. Jenniap
titled "In Defence of the Artsnaa'
There should be no necessity for
anyone, even an Artsman, to fed
obliged to defend his faculty. &
should be morally certain that hi
in in the right, and anyone wht
thinks differently just doesn't
know the score. An apology (ptr
don me, defence) seems to nit K
be out of order.
But then, maybe Dr. Jenniap
lengthy association with the net
in red sweaters has altered ha
viewpoint.
They say every dog has its diy.
The Artsmen have had their mtk

Tieup Folded
McGill in 1944
• MONTREAL, Jan. 12—(CUP)-
Montreal's street-car strike in
the spring of 1943 came as a shock
to McGill students. In spite of
tho assistance of generous automobile drivers, considerable depletion in attendance at lectures
was experienced which continued
for only one week of the strike.
Very intense cold weather prevailed in Montreal at the time of
the strike and students living outside Montreal found it impossible
to reach the university unless they
had cars. Few had automobiles
and students living In the town
found it difficult to walk.
A second strike was held ln
February, 1944, when the cold
weather was severest. This strike,
coming at a time when artistic
endeavor is at its height in Montreal, seriously affected a concert
of a distinguished Chilean pianist,
Claudio Arrau, presented at tho
University of Montreal to strengthen relations between McGUl end
thc other university. Less than
a dozen McGill students attended
the conference and a notable event thus did not receive due credit.
Contrasted with this was attendance at the Med-Plumbers' Ball,
held the samq night as the strike,
which was a success despite the
tram tie-up. The social event continued far into tho morning and
students living far from the university found tired feet and frostbite no health cure.
Leniency was extended to students who were late for lecture
during the strike.

who have left the university since 1940, either as undergrads or grads,
will please fill out the accompanying form (above), it would greatly aid

felt that, if there was no war, the
1945 issue would be the missing
students' Totem.
As far as it is possible, the
names of all students, men and
women, will be included. Mention wiil made of any decorations
which have been won, and any
outstanding actions in which the
men have fought.
If the men or women were Active in student affairs while they
were on the campus, such activities will be included also.
Boxes will be placed in the Quad

Aggie Bull Additions
Overdue This Week
By DON STAINSBY,
• BULLS, BULLS, bulls. Everyone in the Pub, for the
past week has been talking about the Aggies' new bulls.
The fact reached a climax when my senior editor shooed me
out of the Pub in the general direction of the Aggie Building.
"See Dean Clement and get a feature about the bulls."
And so I trotted. Timidly I
poked my Artsman nose into the
Aggie building, and after taking
the necessary precautions of hauling out my faithful corn-cob, and
sticking some hay in my hair I
tiptoed in.
After peering wondcringly at the
directory just inside tho door,
(that ought to prove I'm not an
Aggie,) I found the. gentleman in
question occupied room P. I figured that this should be upstairs,
ond so I upstairscd.
I soon found myself at a dead
end. So I turned out and staggered back thc way I had come.
(Yessir, I wasn't so dumb, I'd been
through this sort of thing before
in    the    Applied    Scienccmen's
i'bodel.
At last I found the door.
In spite of the "Please walk in"
notice on the door I knocked timidly. Receiving no reply I took
the bull by the horns (how else,
seeing that I wanted the bull a-
bout the bulls) and turned the
knob. What a sight, An office,
but not the right one. I told one
of the girls there I would like to
see the dean. "Follow me," she
piped, and led me to the next
door.
I was soon ushered into the hallowed room, and mumbled my
speech.
"Ah, yes," Dean Clement
beamed, "I think I know what
you want."
He left thc room, and in a moment returned. "Sorry son, no
bulls as yet. Come back next
week."

UBC CAGE CLUBSTRIUMPH
• BASKETBALL FANS weren't deterred by the Street
Car Strike as one of the largest crowds of the season
packed the King Edward hoop emporium to witness two of
the most torrid tilts yet staged in the high school gym. Both
Varsity squads were triumphant to hold down the top two
spots in the senior loop. The Thunderbirds defeated Lauries,
68-65, while the Chiefs downed Higbies with a 29-27 count.
Both battles were thrillers as the
underdogs staged last-inning attacks to bring thc crowd to its feet
with excitement. In the wide-open
opener, the Pie-Rates started ferociously against the Thunderbirds,
and held a 13-8 advantage at the
quarter-mark.
STILWELL TORRID
But thc Students came back with
some of their smoothest ball in the
second stanza as they ran circles
around Joo Hall'* crew and dumped 27 tallica through the twine in
the   en.sueing   10   minutes   while
holding Lauries to 10 points.
Art Stilwell led the Blue and
Gold  quintet   in   that   frame,
shooting    six    smooth    shots
swishing   through    the    hoop
without  touching thc  rim.   A
timely free shot raised his total
to 13 for the second period.
Reg   Clarkson   took   up   where
Stilwell left ofT after the breather

LUKE MOYLS
• ONCE WHEN 1 was a little
kid, teachers used to inspire
me with their revelations about
great men. I guess most little kids
get dreamy-eyed when they think
of tho great exploits of Alexander
tho Oreut, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, ond those hundreds of other (igurcs who just
naturally stand out on the pages
ot history. ,
For some reason or other,
we tend to lose
this fascinating
form of hero
worship as we
grow older. But
from time to
time we meet
characters who
t,.!'e' u.s back to
t h (i .s e d ay -
dreaming days.
Such personalities aro scare, but I met one the
other day.
Well,   I've  met  Abe   Sapcrstcin
several times before, but 1 never
had  a  chance  to  speak  to  him
much until we met him on that
trip down to Spokane.  I met him
again Thursday down at the News
H,  and  after  eating  at  the Pall
Mall, went to the game at King
Ed Gym to watch his team.
You see, Abe ls a basketball
promoter.    He   also   promotes
other sports such as baseball
from his Chicago office.   But
his famous team is the Harlem
Globe Trotters, the negro all-
star   team   that   has   amazed
North   American   basketball
circles for more than a decode.
Abe  has  worked  hard  for  his
present prominence, but his sparkling personality is what got him to
the top.   His players will tell you
what a great guy he is, and his
secretary,   E'ob  Carson,   will   tell
you he's got something on the ball
besides.
Ono of his greatest assets is a
perfect memory. Young Bill Mor-
lock, a sports writer with the Vancouver S, could have been knocked
over with a feather when Abe got
off his train and greeted all the
sports scribes by name.
But Abe Is also a great conversationalist. He's got a million
stories, and they're all authentic. He has seen most of them
happen. Ole Bakken, big centre
with thc Thunderbirds, got an
Idea of this on the train back
from Spokane when Abe spent
half an hour telling him about
great plvotmcn he had seen In
action.
Abe told me he was sorry he
couldn't bring his coloured cagers
out to the UBC campus this year,
and he asked me to apologize to
the students. Evidentally tho
Trotters' schedule allowed them
only Thursday night in Vancouver,
for they left right af{er their game
for Seattle.
Yes, it's too bad Abe didn't get
out to the campus this year, put
we know the students will appreciate the Harlem Globe Trotters
that much more when they return
to UBC next season.

li'lht   durin:;   the   third  canto,   and
the two chlb.s ended with 10 point:,

CHIEFS CHALLENGED
Lauries' last - quarter drive
brought the crowd to life as they
entered with a d2-point deficit,
54-42, then went on to outscore
Varsity 23-14 to como within three
markers of tho Birds. Bobby Scarr
was the spark of tho Pie-Rates re-
talliation, potting five neat long
shots that rivalled Stilwell's previous effort.
Thc Chiefs found themselves
faced by Ex-Varsity man
Gordy Sykes In thc feature tiff,
but disregarded him in the
opening half as they whipped
to a 25-12 lead shortly before
thc half.
But, under Sykes, Higbies went
to work in tho third canto and
whittled the lead down to four
points, with a 27-23 count In the
middle of the fourth period. Tho
Miltonmen continued their drive
right through to the final whistle,
ond although they cut the margin
to a single basket with two minutes left, the Chiefs held tho ball
until the bell.

Mu Phis Capture
Volleyball Crown
From Kappa Sigs
• INTRAMURAL volleyball
camo to a climatic end Friday
at noon when a determined team
of Mu Phi's upset tho favoured
Kappa Sigs in two straight games.
Starting oire strong, tho "underdogs" came through with a 15-8
win and went right on to capture
the second with a 15-10 score.
Handicapped by an edge of nearly two years per man, the freshman squad played heads-up ball
all the way to take the Intramural
title handily.  In the way of stars,
Dave Rea shone for the freshman
squad while Ches Pederson worked hard for Kappa Sigma.
Pat McGeer made a name for
himself   as   a   "server   extraordinaire"    as   he    lofted    a
mighty serve up through the
rafters.    An    amazed   Knppa
Sigma team stood by In amazement as thc ball landed just
Inside the line.
Tito pride of the mighty seniors
is not quite so easily appeased
however, for they plan to try their
hands at sweet revenge sometime
in the future.
" Three Contests
On Tap at UBC

• TOUGH COMPETITION in
the form of one of the Northwest's top service basketball teams
is in store for the Varsity Thunderbirds tonight when they tackle
tho Whidbey Island Navalairs in
the feature tilt on tonight's piple-
hcadcr  casaba  card  at  the  UBC
cym.
Thc U.S. Navy Flyers have a
record of only six wins in 11
battles this season while the Birds
have won 14 out of 21. B'ut the
Navalairs are currently in second
place in the tough Northwest Service League. Fort Lewis Warriors
nnd Sand Point Navalairs are tied
for top spot.
The Blue and Gold squad Is
at its weakest these days, having lost Gordy Sykes through
the exams and Art Johnson.
Bruce Yorke also left just be-
foro Christmas to devote himself to the second team, the
UBC Chiefs. Kenny Thomas
was signed at the last minute
to partially make up for these
losses.
The Chiefs were also shorthand-
ed, and ^igned three new players
to fill out their outfit, namely Ian
Blake, Jack Cowan and Bill Mac-
Dowall. The Yorkemen tackle
Higbies again in the 8 o'clock contest on tonight's bill. And in the
7 o'clock preliminary, the Higbie
Inter B's entertain the Port Al-
berni All-Stars from Vancouver
Island.
Coach John Stephens of the
Whidbey Island crew expects
to start his leading scorer,"
Lloyd Morse, along with Don

Harlem Quintet Amazes
Hoop Fans At King Ed
•   HARLEM'S FAMOUS Globe Trotters stole tho hearts of 1057 basketball fans down at the K:ng Edward house of hoopla as those wizards
of casaba capers waltzed through thc Minor League All-Stars Thursday
night with a 56-30 count, to which nobody paid any attention.
It was thc hilarious comedy and smoothly-styled ball-handling
which amazed the fans as they crammed the house to capacity to witness
the one-night stand of the Trotters in Vancouver.
Going through all their unusual hoop tactics which have
made them world-famous as showmen, the coloured quintet applied
their "ole black magic" to thc fighting young baskctcers and built
up a comfortable margin before concentrating on dishing out
laughs with their bottomless bag of tricks. *
Bernio Price was his usual All-American self as he faked and
pivoted nonchalantly before slipping the setups through the twine. Later
he showed off his shooting ability as he dropped to his knees and cast
a long shot through tho hoop.
Not to bo outdone, Duke Cumberland stepped up to the centre
circle and sent one swishing through the hemp.   The fans were also
amazed at the sharpshooting ability of young Dan Moore, who is Just out
of high school.  The young Trotter netted six long shots for a total of.
12 points.
Their usual football and baseball imitations with the basketball drew plenty of applause, but the young All-Stars showed the
Trotters they could do it too.  Lining up In kick formation, the
local kids fooled the Harlcmltcs as Bob Casey switched to hurl a
forward pass.
The Globe Trotters finished the session with another display of their
whip-like passing which netted them a final triumphant basket to bring
the cheering enthusiasts to their feet in a last ovation.
