Special AMS Meeting April 1
FIRST
NIGHTER
By LIONEL SALT
Tfalutytm
•   TAKING their lead from
the Inspiration of veteran
actors,   the   Players'   Club     PUBLISHED TWICE WEEKLY BY THE PUBLICATIONS BOARD OF THE UNrVERSITY OP BRITISH COLUMBIA
Wednesday night displayed
'<*, j       their annual Spring produc- T w A4MT
VANCOUVER, B. C, FRIDAY^ MARCH 27, 1942
No. 39
tion, "The Rivals", to an undergraduate audience, heard
it acclaimed by the students
as first-class entertainment.
Choice of Richard Sheridan's comedy of manners,
"The Rivals" was questioned
more than was the acting of
the players, who struggled
nobly to cover over obviously weak spots in the play's
construction.
Standing out head and shoulders
above the rest of the cast was Ihe
veteran mummer Lister Sinclair
who, handling1 the role of Sir Anthony Absolut* with great dispatch, proved to be the greatest
asset in setting the others at their
•ate on Hie stage.
SINCLAIR UNIQUE
Sinclair, who has developed In
three years of University acting,
• set of unique stage mannerisms,
carried the cast over many of the
first-night weak spots, making the
most out of his every line.
Teaming up with Sinclair in
some extremely well-developed
dialogue was another Players' Club
veteran, Arthur Hill, who last
year took the lead in "Candida".
Although at times fluffing lines,
Hill made an extremely good foil
for the biting wit of Sinclair's Anthony Absolut*. Playing th* ro-
mantio lead, Hill mad* the best of
his *lght**nth century dialogue in
th* love scenes, but was at his
best while on stag* with Sinclair.
Making a clean sweep for th*
men as far as acting honours go
v wu Ronald Heal, who, although
at times overplaying his comedy
relief role of Rob Acres, provided
• much needed energy and obvious
stag* presenoe to his several
scents.
Although a newcomer to th* University,   Heal .is   apparently   at
home In the theatre, needs only to
curb himself slightly.
MEN LEAD
A somewhat surprising turn of
event* in Players' Club history this
year saw the men take an undeniable lead over the women. In
the, past, women have been standouts in the annual production.
Undoubtedly, the dearth of outstanding feminine performances
can be partly blamed on Sheridan
who was more Inclined to give the
best lines to his men.
Playing opposite Hill in the romantic feminine lead was Doreen
Dougan, freshette "discovered" at
the Christmas plays. Miss Dougan
displayed « native talent that
bodes well for the future productions but lacks the stage presence
necessary to carry a scene over
momentary lulls.
With Hill, in th* love scents,
Miss Dougan was at h*r best.
Sheridan's most famous role, that
of Mrs. Malaprop, th* "old, weath-
e-rb*at*n she-dragon", was taken
by another newcomer to th* Players' Club stag*, Eleanor Atkins.
Although tending to slip out of
character in many scenes, Miss Atkins carried off th* comedy role
very adequately, managing to get

O.T.C. Will Invade Point;
Shrum Leads Defenders
• CULMINATING a year's campus training of the Basic
and C.O.T.C. groups a sham battle will be held Saturday
afternoon.
The Basic groups, or Shrum's Own Basic Black Guards
(S.O.B.'s for short), will attack the C.O.T.C. who will represent a Battalion of Hirohito Guards about 500 strong which
has landed on Point Grey from a grounded transport.
Battle's noisy roll will be slmu-       tm—m—mm——mmmmmm—mmmm——M—m—mm
lated by thc judicious use of fireworks while rifles and machine
guns will spit their cargoes of artificial death.
Campus topography has been altered for the better by th* addition
of a pair of theoretical lakes over
the Agricultural fields. ,
Th* C.O.T.C. or Hirohito Guards
will probably attempt to bold th*
defending fore* or may attempt
to outflank them to advance on
the city proper. They will hold a
line approximately from th* "Dolphin" to th* historical Monument
on Marin* Drive.
Rules will be enforced by Umpires who will be in th* official
category of exterminators. Up to
them will be th* elimination of
unfortunate casualties and the enforcing of the death warrant to
ensure that casualties will not g*t
up and go on fighting.
Officers of the Basic and C.O.T.C.
have studied th* situation and
have submitted appreciations to
their individual C.O.'s Th* best
plan on each side will be adopted
and may th* best side win!
Japanese Student
Freed; No Grounds
• "A MOST unfortunate case" was the way Austin C.
Taylor, chairman of the B.C. Security Commission, described the incident at Trail, B.C. earlier this week when
R.C.M.P. officers arrested Sabuo Takahashi, former mechanical engineering student at U.B.C, on charges of possible
sabotage for possessing maps of restricted areas in that
district.
Downtown Vancouver dailies ran
banner headlines of the arrest, revealing that Takahashi had detailed maps with the Trail Smelter
and other important places marked
on them and was driving a car
which a white woman had driven
as far as Boston Bar for him to
get out of the 100-mile coast restricted area.
Subsequent ..investigation Jias
shown that the "Important maps"
which Takahashi possessed were
drawn for him by a fellow-student
just before he left U.B.C. for Edmonton to continue his engineering course at the University of
Alberta. This student had asked
Sabuo to visit his parents who live
In Trail while passing through, and
had drawn rough sketches on note
paper giving directions on how to
find their home. These sketches
the police naturally seised, suspecting Takahashi of ulterior motives.
The woman who drove Takaha-
shi's car to Boston Bar was an old
friend of the Japanese student's
family, and merely did it to help
him on his way to Edmonton,
where he had hoped to graduate.
Commenting that the story of
the arrest was released to the
newspapers too hastily and before
sufficient investigation, Mr. Taylor stated the police have dropped
the case entirely, and Takayashl
is now at Hastings Park with other
Japanese nationals, awaiting evacuation under the ordinary plan.
COL. GORDON SHRUM, MJM,
above, will command Shrum's Own
Basic Black Guards, defenders of
the University area in Saturday's
impending "Battle of Point Grey."
COTC Camp

•   OFFICIAL word has been received that this year's COTC
camp will be held at Vernon.
The date of the entraining for
camp may be the night of April
28th. or the 29th.
Accent on fieldcraft and extensive practical application of theory
will mark the camp period according to instructors.
Pub Godt
Old And New
ARCHIE PATON, who next week
relinquishes his post as Editor-in-
Chief of Publications. Throughout the past year it has bean his
duty to guide all Pubsters in their
work on the Ubyssey, Totem, Tilllcum and Directory.

Opinion," he intends to carry on
in 1942-43 his campaign for « greater university war effort and a
limitation of social functions.
AMS. Endorses Plebiscite
•   AT THE ALMA MATER Society General Meeting Monday, March 25, the following resolution was passed unanimously by the undergraduate body:
Whereas, the battle for the defence of Canada will
not b6gin just when the enemy sets foot on our shore, but
is being fought throughout the world at the present time, and
Whereas, the government of the Dominion of Canada
seeks to be released from its pledge not to conscript manpower for overseas service,
Therefore be it moved:
That the Alma Mater Society go on record as favouring the
release of the Dominion Government from its pledge not to
conscript manpower for overseas service, and that the Alma
Mater Society urge its members of voting age to use their
franchise to release the government from this pledge in the
forthcoming plebiscite.
Richards Plays

Thetas To-night
• TONIGHT Dal Richard* will
honour Alpha Delta Phi fraternity and Kappa Alpha Theta
sorority on his "Fraternity Night"
broadcast will be heard over CJOR
at eleven o'clock.
For the Alpha Delts the band
will play "Here We Com* With •
Shout and a Song". "Someone
Else Is Taking My Place" will be
played for the president John MacDonald.
The orchestra will feature "The
Kappa Alpha Theta Waltz" for the

Grads Meet
Mon* Noon;
Talk Fees
• FURTHER    ACTION    arising
from   the   petition   protesting
against high graduation fees will
be delayed until the meeting of
the Board of Governors of the
University Monday, March 30, it
was announced from President
Klinck's office this week.
The petition, submitted to the
Bursar by over 20 members of this
year's graduation class, has been
turned over to the President who
will present the matter to the
Board.
Meanwhile, expressing the opinion of students throughout the
university on the subject, the
Alma Mater Society at its meeting Tuesday unanimously declared
itself in favor of the proposed reduction of the fifteen dollar fee.
A meeting of the graduating
class to discuss the election of an
honorary president of the gradu-
Several Men
Want Vacant
Arts Offices
•   "I THINK I SHOULD LIKE
very much to be Vice-President of the Art* Executive."
This, th* first answer to Chuck
McNeely's call for officers for the
A.M.U.S., came almost immediately after th* appearance of last
week's paper. The applicant was
Geoffrey Ashe, third year arts-
man, known by many of his admirers as the Asp, In spite of remarks to the contrary, as long as
we have men like the Asp, the
Arts faculty shall not perish from
the Earth.
The second candidate, this time
for treasurer was Foster Isherwood, of the Players Club.
Other applicants for the offices
of vice-president, treasurer and
secretary were Phi Delts Dave
Lawson, Ron McBride and Dave
Housser. The advantages of an all
Phi Delt executive, including
President Hugh Ritchie, and the
three last mentioned candidates
may easily be realized.
Last applications so far came
from three Sciencemen who had
heard that there was to be an
election but had not waited to hear
what is was for.
Retiring President, Chuck McNeely, hopes to appoint the officers without having to resort to
calling a meeting, which would
probably meet with no more success than the last one.
atlng fee and selection of a gift
to the university will be held
Monday in Arts 100.
The executive elected at the first
meeting consists of: Don Parham,
president; Dorothy Hlrd, vice-
president; Liz Hebb, secretary.
Howie Poulson, treasurer; Jack
Moxon, member-at-large; class
prophet, Al Farrow and class
poet, Earl Johnson.
Fees Granted At
Meeting Wednesday
Morris Takes Over
• CALLING OF a special Alma Mater Society meeting
for 12:30 noon on Wednesday, April 1, to discuss possible
reduction of Pass System fees for next year culminated the
annual A.M.S. meeting attended by a mere 500 students In
the Auditorium last Wednesday.
Despite protestations that a quo*- mmmmmmmmmmmmwmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
tun oft the student body was musing,' the meeting passed several
motions, most Important being th*
ratification of the payment of th*
fees of the President, Treasurer
and Editor-in-Chief for 1942-43.
Resolutions were passed unanimously recording the disapproval
of the Alma Mater Society as a
whole on the exorbitant 115.00
graduation fee, and recording It*
favour of a "yes" vote on the forthcoming national conscription plebiscite.
ANNUAL REPORTS
A detailed report of Student*'
Council activities for the year was
given by Secretary Mary Frank
Atkin, while Keith Porter showed
in his treasurer's report a very
favorable financial balance at the
end of the term.
Heated debate arose on the issue
for payment of fees of the three
student officers although amendments for the separate consideration of each and the deletion of
the President and Editor's names
were defeated.
One student expressed th* opinion that th* Editor's fee* should
not be paid because the quality of

APPRECIATION
After the business meeting, President McBride turned the robe* of
office over to President-elect Rod

Snaddon Succeeds Paton
As PubThoth For '42-43
By JACK FERRY
•   TRUE to an old Pub tradition is our new god, Andrew
Snaddon.
That tradition is the one that states that never shall
a Vancouver man be editor-in-chief of U.B.C. Publications.
For    Andy,    although    born    in ————*——,mm—m—mm—mm—mm——mm
Winnipeg just in time to be of
draft age, has long been a Calgary
product. Only after spending the
last two years attending Varsity
has he slackened slightly in being
a rabid Calgarian.
Out of the depths of his early
education in the land of Bible Bill
comes the information that he was
editor of his high school paper. It
became the first Canadian school
paper to win recognition by the
International Quill and Scroll Society.
After  taking   Senior  Matric  in
Calgary, Andy arrived at U.B.C.
last year to start his study In economics.   He soon drifted

THE   UBYSSEY
Friday, March 27, 1942
• From The Editor's Pen » » »
Jap Jitters
The Saburo Takahashi incident, described elsewhere in this issue, serves as an
illustration of two conditions prevailing in
B.C. at this time. One is highly commendable, the other dangerously harmful.
It is gratifying to find that the R.'C.M.P.
officials, entrusted with the task of guarding
against enemy action from within, are so
alert on their Job. The fact that they were
on the spot and held a man whom they suspected ls a token that a constant vigilance
Is being kept for our internal safety.
However, it is most unfortunate that
reports which were blown up to fan the
flame of increasing public prejudice were
released to the newspapers before adequate
investigation was made into the case. If
such had been done before the story of the
arrest was made public, all the bitterness
which has been added to an increasingly jittery population would have been avoided.
This dastardly practice of condemning
every person of Japanese origin on sight
and screaming "Jap, Jap" whenever some
dark figure is seen in the night (as happened this week when some patriot swore he
saw a Jap breaking into a building and it
turned out to be the caretaker who had forgotten his key) is an excellent example of
the effect of war on human psychology.
People who know perfectly well that Canadian-born Japanese have been living and
working among us for years, and who know
that in peacetime they proved themselves
better Canadians than lots of white persons,
now have completely lost their heads and
grab at every opportunity to stir up racial
hatred—one of the evils we are supposed to
be fighting against.
If the public and the press would just
leave the matter of the Japanese up to the
officials assigned to that job, the B.C. Security Commission and the R.C.M.P., all these
fantastic stories which create so much unrest
would never circulate.
Finale
And so we have almost come to the
end of another year. A new editor has been
chosen, and when the last issue rolls off the
press and into your hands next week, we
will close the back cover of Volume XXIV
of the Ubyssey, clean away the papers and
books which have accumulated on this desk
during the term, and make way for those
who follow.
It doesn't seem as if a year has passed
since the day we became editor. It seems
only a few weeks ago we planned how we
would make our volume of the Ubyssey the
best ever to hit this campus. To what extent we failed or succeeded you are the
judges. Any credit you may deem worthy
ls due to the kids who have worked so hard
this year news gathering, writing, editing,
proof-reading—working from early morning
till late at night on press days to make the
Ubyssey a real newspaper.
We ushered in Volume XXIV as U.B.C.
entered its third war-time session. Our
main objective was to point every effort towards building-up and consolidating the
university's war program. We look back upon that program to see that in all phases
it was strengthened and expanded—in military training, in women's war work, in
money drives for war charities.
And now we look forward. What this
university will be like next year no one can
tell. Only one thing we do know—if we
thought it hard to stick out this term, we
know it will be doubly hard to do so then.
All the frills of the fullest social calendar
in U.B.C.'s history; which we had this year,
will have to go—only hard work and increasing resistance to the university will greet
students who are fortunate enough to return.
The man who has been chosen to guide
the edition of the next volume of this paper
realizes the difficult task that lies ahead of
him. He realizes that, although students
may scoff and rant at the Ubyssey, they do
look upon it as a reflection and guide of
campus opinion, and he has determined to
give his utmost to furthering the war effort we helped to build this year. We wish
you luck, Andy, and know from experience
you will regard your year as editor of the
Ubyssey as one of the most profitable of
your whole life.
Students With Clashes
May Get Other Exam Dates
• WHEN timetables are posted,
they act as an incentive to
students to get down to hard work,
but little thaught is given to the
tremendous amount of work and
planning that has been put into
the charting of them.
C. B. Wood, the registrar, does
the actual setting up of the timetables. After several weeks of
planning a tentative schedule is
put up, and classes can then report
if there are any conflicting times.
Timetables of previous years and
the calendar are used as a bask,
and then the actual timetable is
arrived at through e process of
elimination.
If a fairly large number of students are affected by a conflicting
schedule, then special consideration is given to them and they are
permitted to write at a separate
time under special supervision.

e LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Deer Sir:
In tho last Issue of the Ubyssey
you very kindly published a list
of books "missing" from the library. 1 wonder if the students
understood that these books had
been mislrid or lost by other students, in classrooms, common
rooms, the cafeteria, and elsewhere.
To date none of the books on this
list has been returned; may I
again ask that anyone finding an
unattached library book should
return it to the Loan Desk? He
will thereby save the student who
borrowed It the expense of replacing it.
In addition, the following titles
are missing from the Reserve
shelves — presumably lifted by
students who thought their need
greater than that of others. Perhaps they would as innocently
return these to the Reserve shelves
for the use of other students during the week before the examinations.
Haberler, International trade;
Taussig, International trade; Anson, Towards the twentieth century; Browning, Poems; Long &
Anderson, Chemical calculations;
Treadwell & Hall, Analytical
chemistry (quantitative). Talbot,
Quantitative chemical analysis;
Wlllard e Furman, Quantitative
analyst); Hammett, Solutions of
electrolytes; Tolstoi, What is art?;
Stewart, Physics (1939 edition).
Since these books can no longer
be bought, their loss is serious for
future students.
Thanking you,
Yours very truly,
Mabel M. Lanning,
Head, Circulation Department.

Campus
Explorer
• IF YOU tried to make a phone
call last Wednesday afternoon
and got the wrong number, you
can blame it on your campus explorer and his aboriglnies who
were "exploring" the telephone
exchange at the time and properly
messing things up.
Presided over by Mrs. Ada McLennan, the telephone exchange is
situated in Room C In the Administration building. There, before
wires, buttons, flashing lights and
all the other telephonic paraphernalia, Mrs. McLennan daily
doles out numbers for the University.
NOT AN EASY JOB
We can testify that her job is
not an easy one. Mrs. McLennan
allowed us to maul over the board
in the pretext of getting a number and the wires were almost
tied into knots In the resulting
struggle. The gentlemen who attempted to get the Loan Desk, but
finally had to give up, is hereby
offered our profuse apologies.
Mrs. McLennan, although she has
been here only since October is
quite familiar with campus affairs,
problems, and love complications.
Coming from a downtown hotel,
Mrs. McLennan finds U.B.C.'s tele-
phone system a little harder to get
on to and feels a little "cooped up"
after the hotel, but likes the atmosphere out here much better.
"I appreciate the sunshine and
green grass here," she said.
BOARD COMPLICATED
The telephone board in front of
which she works is complicated,
but Mrs. McLenan's swift fingers
fly over it nimbly with a speed
which would amaze the noncha-
lent individual who blithely calls
a number as if the operation was
as simple as could be. "Operators," said Mrs. McLennan, "are
supposed to be blind, deaf, and
dumb." After watching her at
work, you somehow can't believe
that statement.
Mrs. McLennan has had many
amusing experiences on the
switchboard. People call the University for free advice and when
she answers, unload their problems on to her.
Questions like "What do I do
with a sick dlicken?" are among
the requests made which remind
her she is working for an educational institution. One time a
man tried to get the golf course
and got the University. Undaunted
when he found his mistake, he
tried to date the lady with the
pretty voice.
FRANTIC EMERGENCY
One day a frantic woman called
the University and tried to reach
"Junior," explaining that it was
a terrible emergency. After hours
of searching and announcing, it
was learned that he just had to go
home to turn the fire off under
the roast. Then one day painters
shellaced the switchboard and it
was some time beore anyone could
have a decent conversation over
Varsity telephones. One day a
farmer called up and asked the
present price of manure. He
couldn't be convinced that he had
the wrong place, either.
Mrs. McLennan admits that
sometimes she has made a mistake, but not often. When she
first come on the job, her most
frequent mistake was answering,
"Hotel University."

Spectacular
Tests Held In
Forestry Lab
O THE MOST spectacular lab on
t the campus, In the opinion of
fourth year student engineers, Is
the Federal Forest Products, located on an isolated section, south
of the Mechanical building.
Every material used in building
and construction is tested for
bending and tension. Steel bars
are pulled apart in tremendously
powerful machines and actually
measured; the amount of bending
of steel-eye beams is recorded on
optical measuring instruments;
wood samples used especially In
aeroplane construction are tested.
Companies manufacturing wire
rope and -cables in Vancouver
bring samples to be tested with
their own representative on hand
to record the results. Bricks and
concrete are broken down and glue
samples are analysed and tested
for quality.
The engines used burn sawdust
charcoal in ordinary gasoline engines with the carburetor removed,
and run on carbon monoxide from
the generators.
This may be a solution to the
transportation problem. When gas
rationing becomes effective, buses
and trucks wilPbe able to run on
sawdust charcoal.

Exam Boards
Carry Record
Qf Despair
O   STUDENTS   who   can't   pass
' their exams this April will in
compensation get a good hour's
reading from the entertaining
exam-writing boards given them
to use as desks in the adultorium.
These boards serve not only as an
instrument of easy publicity when
dropped during an exam, but serve
also as a combination rogues' gallery, poetry collection, and information bureau.
As a rogues' gallery, the wooden
slabs have not only pictures of
pretty girls, but one a Jack
Boothe-like cartoon of a frustrated
face, saying: "O.K. prof, you've
got men."
Names of students from years
back are always interesting, such
as "Isabclle Black, Arts '37," who
you know now as Isabelle White
with three children.
The comforting thought is that
most of the words written on the
board express one's thoughts on
writing exams. Like: '"Oh to be in
England, now that April's here,"
- "B.A.C.: Hell, U.B.C!" - or
"Backward, turn backward, O
Time In thy flight, and remember
one thing that I studied last night."
As an information bureau, one
desk may have chemical equations,
math formulae, three verses of
"memory," or a list of stories and
their authors, for checking them
off the list. The trouble is that
you never do get a board that
would help you in your particular exam. Such must have been
the fate of the poor soul who
wrote this one seen last year: "If
you get through without a sup,
then lend your notes to the under-
pup, I ain't gonna grieve my lord
no more."

'Shirley Kerr, as Julia, turned
in a capable performance.although
many of her lines were lost because of a habit of turning her
head off-stage during delivery.
Thrown into ihe background by
the sterling work of Sinclair, HiU

Foster Isherwood and John Seyer
who lacked the forcefulness to
make their presence felt on the
stage.
Sam Payne handled the play's
direction well, and the costumes,
under the care of Anne du Moulin,
were outstanding. A capable stage
crew shifted scenes under the direction of Don Newson. Sets were
designed by Paul Matthews.

Engineers To Run
Artsmen's Affairs
By JOHN SCOTT
* ENGINEERS, formerly Sciencemen, the scourge of the
Arts Faculty, who for years now have bullied, belittled,
and bewildered the "dying" Artsman, have at last dealt the
telling blow, the blow to end all blows at the "vanishing
undergraduate".
In response to President Chuck MoNeely's plea for
someone, anyone, to serve on the Arts' Executive, three
Engineers magnanimously offered their services to that body
—and have been accepted.
The letter in which the kind-hearted Engineers applied for the positions and which stated their sincere reasons
is as follows:
Mr. C J. McNeely, mm-mm-mm--m-mm-mmmmm--m--m
President,
Artsmen's Undergraduate
Society, University of B. C
Dear Sir:
In response to your statement
which appeared in the March 20th
issue of the Ubyssey, we, the undersigned, respectfully submit this
application for the positions of
Vice-President, Secretary and
Treasurer of the Artsmen's Undergraduate Society. You stated that
any Artsmen could have the positions for the asking, but for the
following reasons we propose that
we could handle the work much
more efficiently:
1. We are all members of Science
'44.
2. As%uch it would be easy next
year foi' us to co-operate fully and
effectively with Students' Council.
3. As such it would be easy for
us to co-operate fully and effectively with BUS next year.
4. Such co-operation would help
to keep the Aggies in their place.
5. We would infuse a bit of good
Science spirit into AMUS and thus
lay the foundations for the time
when it can percolate by Itself
again.
6. We have several ideas for tho
Arts-Aggie Pep Meet next year.
7. We would like to get control
over some organization which has
co-eds in it.
8. We are all members of
Science '44.
Please consider our sincere willingness to put a bit of spirit into
AMUS and to make It an active
organization on the campus again.
We can be contacted any time at
Room 212, Applied Science, or at
the Georgia Hotel.
Yours truly.
O. M. Julson  (Vice-President)
L. H. Gitterman,  (Secretary)
S. J. Beaton (Treasurer)
These   applications   have   been
ratified by Charlie Nash and three
unholy terrors are probably, even
at this moment, assuming office.
It is quite evident to all who
know engineers that things will
now begin to hum, buzz, and
sizzle in the dormant Artsmen's
Undergraduate Society. It is rumored that McNeely is going to
have a devil of a time to control
them, that is, if he does at all, as
"We Three" have already formed
a plan of battle which, although
of course a secret, will probably
mean the remodelling, revamping
(with emphasis on the "vamping")
and rejuvenating of the lumbering
Arts machine.
To get the Artsman* reaction to
this, the Ubyssey cautiously approached one of the organisms and
informed him that something new
had been added to his executive,
namely three engineers. When
last seen he was jibbering frantically in Spanish, Greek, French,
Latin and Hindustani as he leapt
chimney to chimney on Brock
(Hall.
In case you gentle co-eds still
can't believe it's true and have already sent welcome notes to the
Japanese, we print the following
official confirmation from Charles
Nash:
I hereby ratify the appointment
Notice

faculty and will hold office unttt

Sports Standing
•   AFTER MORE than six months of competitive Intra-Mural sports, which included everything from Track to Ping Pong, and in which more than ten Fraternities competed, a
winner appeared today.
Phi Delta Theta, coming from behind during the last few weeks emerged with top
honours in Mural standing, fifteen points ahead of their nearest rivals, Kappa Sigma.
• TOMMY SYME, North West

NOTICE
• IT HAS BEEN requested by
"Johnny" Owen, cheerful strip
director and keeper of the Stadium,
that all team strip must be handed In at once. "Johnny" especially asks the girls to turn In their
strip right away. Men's strip
should be turned In also.
' Sports A Year
Ago Today
• ALL VARSITY was rejoicing
last year at this time over the
Senior 'A"s victory over the Victoria Dominoes which brought the'
Provincial Championships to U.B.C.
for the first time in five years.
The champions deserved all the
praise that was given to them, and
they got plenty. Joe Ryan, Art
Barton, Pat Flynn, and Jim Scott
came In for the better part of the
glory, but the other members of
the team were by no means neglected.
Of almost equal interest a year
ago was the notice by the Sports
staff of the Ubyssey that they
would sponsor s Woo Contest, the
winners to be given a weekend up
the mountain, sll expenses paid.
...The decision of th* Varsity soccer team to protest their d*f**t
from th* Pro Recs fell Ilk* a bombshell into the soccer Hague. Th*
decision was based on th* fact that
th* Pro Recs used five men who
played in the Saturday L**gu*.
Th* final item of Interest to
students was the victory of Austin
Frith in the army boxing tourna-
bent. All other Varsity entries
failed to place in the contest.
By the way, the Ubyssey issue of
last year was the goon issue, and
the sports page blazoned forth the
news that the Canadian Cage Playoffs would be held at Nanaimo.
No trace of any such game can be
found, and it is presumed that the
statement was erroneous.
Discus Heaver

• BIG BLOCK award winners In
Women's Athletics were announced today by the Awards
Committee. All told, more than
thirty co-eds have received awards
on the campus this year.
The Big Block Awards were as
follows; Betty Muir, (third time),
Helen Matheson, Jean Handling,
Mary Bradley, Florence Rowell,
Mary Frank Atkln, Beth Cocking
and Helen McKlUop.
Senior Manager Awards were
only granted to two girls this year.
The winners were Nora Neilson
and Marguerite Neil.
Small Block Awards were given
to the following women; Buddy
Graham, Beatrice Inch, Nora Nell-
son, Gwynne Poslethwalte, Mlram
Ren wick.
Exact figures on the enure Mural
standing have not as yet been released. Golf matches are still being
played but the results will not
change the top two groups' standing in any way.
The Phi Delts stand on top by
virtue of their spirited wins in
Snooker and Track and their high
.second rate standings in Basketball, swimming, Baseball and Golf.
In the Track Meet, Stu Madden

Phi Kap Cop Mural
Baseball Title
Beat Psi Ups 8-6
• A FIVE run outburst in the fourth inning, when the
score was deadlocked at 3-all, gave the strong Phi Kappa
Pi horsehiders a neat 8-6 victory over the Psi Upsilon nine
for the Intra-Mural Baseball Cup Tuesday noon hour on
Upper Soccer Field.
For three full frames, it was nip
and tuck baseball, the Pi-men
holding a 3-0 lead up until the last
of the third when Psi U. countered three times on Johnny Mcpherson's home run with Darcy
Nicherson on base and a walk to
Denny Thompson who crossed th*
plate on Davy Nichol's one-ply.
Then, on a momentary wild spree
by Psi U. chucker Lionel Fourn-
ler who walked Spencer, McArthur
and lead-off man Lynn Sully to
load the sacks, Mickey Stewart,
diminutive Kap third basemen,
smashed a stinging double over
short that scored Spencer and McArthur. Sloppy fielding by the
shaky Psi U. Infield was responsible for three more runs.
In the last of the fourth, Psi U.
threatened when Darcy Nicherson
got a life on a walk by Ormy Dier.
Fournier fanned and Dier got out
of trouble after Nicherson scored
his second run of the game. The
score stood 8-4, Phi Kappa Pi.
In the first part of the fifth inning, Denny Thompson, Psi U. left
left fielder saved a sure-Are home
run when he turned his back to
the plate and brought down Jerry
Spencer's long fly into left field.
It was do or die for the Psi U.
clan in the last half of the last
frame, and before three went out,
they shoved across two runs, but
not enough to tie the score.
First two men up went down.
Dave Nichols, who caught a good
ball game, drew a walk from Orme
Dier. On the next play, Bill Orr,
sweet ftrst-sacker, dribbled one at
Mickey Stewart who threw wildly
to Blnks Falrburn at first for the
Phi Kap Pis. On the bad heave,
Nichols and Orr advanced to third
and second respectively.
With two strikes on him and the
ball gam* pretty much on ice for
the Pi-men, Ian McDonald lifted
a blooper Into short left that spun
Nichols and Orr home to make It
8-0. Then, Darcy Nicherson, who
had not been put out previously,
fanned swinging to end the ball
game.
Last year, the Phi Kappa Sigma
team garnered top honours in soft-
ball competition. The Phi Kappa
Pi golf team is also in the finals
for Intra-Mural link supremacy.
Lineups for the champlnoship
tussle were:
PSI UPSILON: B. Orr, I. McDonald, D. Nicherson, L. Fournier, J.
McPherson, D. Thompson, G. Mc-
Farland, J. Swaison, D. Nichols.
PHI KAPPA PI: Sully, Dier, Stewart, Benson, GUI, Falrburn, Salt,
Spencer, McArthur.

• THE, INTRA-MURAL
Basketball regular schedule ended with a bang Tuesday at noon as the smooth
playing Phi Delt team
trounced Psi Upsilon 30-9
before a screaming crowd of
Kappa Sigs in the campus
gym.
By their win the Phi Delt
boys cinched first place in
the Intra • Mural Sports
Standing, fifteen points a-
head of the Kappa Sig group.
The Pad Ups, flush from s
victory over the Phi Kapp* Sigs,
the night before, started the game
Tuesday as if they meant business.
But the J. Gregary Ryan coached
Phi men never let them get
started.
Breaking fast and working well
under the losers' basket the Phi
Delts piled up a convincing 20-6
score by half tune.
In the last half, both sides stowed down and the game ended with
a 30-9 score.
