 HUT CLOSURE
by dick dolman
Camp Residents Express Housing Views
UBC Student residents apparently don't
want the hut camps closed down, unless
they can get quick alternative accommodation and/or new residences.
In it's campaign for better student housing, The Ubyssey has made a survey of 477
residents at Acadia and Fort Camp to find
their reactions to the possibility of the huts
being closed.
(Recently Ivan Feltham, president of the
Student Council, said he may ask for an of*
ficial investigation of the army hut residences on the preliminary results of reports from
a student housing committee.
Feltham said he was aware that results of
an official investigation which indicated hazardous conditions in the huts might oblige
UBC housing administration to close the huts
down).
Student reaction was obtained from
more than half of the 900 residents at Fort
Camp and Acadia.
They were asked the following question:
"Would you say the huts should be closed down at the end bf the summer, or
threatened with closure, if such moves might
bring money for new residences by the end
of the year?"
Answers were, yes: 124, no: 298; undecided: 55.
In each camp the results were: Acadia,
yes: 68; no: 206; undecided: 55; and at Fort
Camp, yes: 56; no: 92; undecided: none.
Answers were obtained from 148 out
of 399 men students at Fort Camp and 329
out of 109 women and 341 men at Acadia.
The polls were taken during supper air the
dining halls.
Most students who said yes gave the
reason that they would be willing to risk
closure of the huts if there was a chance that
new dorms would be provided in one or two
years.
Most students who said no, gave the reason that they would nort want to have to try
for accommodation outside the gates if the
huts were closed or threatened with closure.
Most students polled believe an investigation would probably close the huts.
These conclusion are based on results of
the poll and numerous separate interviews
with Fort Camp and Acadia residents.
Following are statements from student
residents at Fort Camp, requested at random
by a reporter:
Philip Rees, post-graduate studies, from
Montreal, resident for 42 months at Acadia
and Fort:
"If there is promise in the near future of
new permanent residences, then I would be in
favor of closing down the huts now, even
though there is very little chance of getting
rooms outside the gates."
John Turnbull, Applied Science student,
fr.om Trail, resident 22' months at Fort:
"I don't want the huts closed down be*
cause 900 students would have nowhere to
go. There is a waiting list already for rooms
in the area outside the university gates. The
only solution is to obtain a large government
capital grant for new permanent residences
to replace the huts."
Don Laishley, 2nd year Arts, student
from Nelson, 6 months resident at Acadia:
"The huts in many cases are in a deplorable state for living and studying but they
should not be closed down. Even with a
large capital grant from the provincial government to build new permanent dormitories,
the Administration would still have to cope
with future housing problems because of increased enrollment."

WINS DEBATE
Students
Support
Ubyssey
Students gave full support to
The Ubyssey Thursday noon
when the resolution, "Resolved
that The Ubyssey is a menace
to campus morals," was defeated
unanimously in Parliamentary
Forum debate.
Negative speakers Allan Fotheringham, editor-in-chief of The
Ubyssey, and reporter Alade
Akesode, convinced the audience
that the student newspaper is
actually a restraining element
on university morals. .
Said Akesode, "You read The
Ubyssey because you like it.
What we do is only try to satisfy
your sexual cravings, Who will
deny that he sometimes has sexual cravings?"
MUCH SEX
Fotheringham said that there
is so much sex in The Ubyssey
that students don't have to look
elsewhere for their satisfaction.
"Actually," he said, trying to
keep a straight face, "We lower
the tone of our whole paper iust
for the good of the university."
Affirmative speakers, law
students John Murdoch and
Boyd Ivens contended that The
Ubyssey's action in censoring
the home economics edition was
a trend toward dictatorship.
Fotheringham stated, "Everyone knows Applied Science students' are heavy drinkers. And
everyone knows that Monte McKay is the heaviest drinker in
that faculty. Well, by taking McKay to Cultus Lake, The Ubys
sey cut down on the drinking at
the Applied Science Ball." He
also pointed out that his paper
combatted greed by printing a
picture of a liquor bottle in a
Brock hall lavatory, therefore
"exposing a student who drank
that mickey all by himself."
MENTAL CASE
Murdoch declared that he was
inclined to think the editor mentally incapable when he makes
u hero out of a drunk. The debator was referring to the Thursday edition which showed a law
student posed with a beer bottle
in a debate on cocktail bars for
UBC.
"The Ubyssey prints all the
dirt that no one else would consider," he said.
He also called The Ubyssey
motto, "Non Illigitimos Carborundum," into question, saying
that it was not befitting the cultural aims of a university newspaper.
Ivens said "it was not so much
what The Ubssey prints as what
it fails to print, that is objectionable. He said the paper should be
a moral guide for the young
university group.
WEDLOCK
Fotheringham explained that
the paper printed stories giving
information on aid to unwed
mothers "to help all the young
girls who have been ruined by
Applied Science and COTC students." Citing a recent guest
editorial which stated that fraternity men were inclined toward
homosexuality, he said that by
keeping a check on fraternities
The Ubyssey prevented the
camous of being over-run with
homosexuals,
Akesode added, "I can't pos-
sibly see how you could call this
paper a "menace" when it provides so much good, clean sexual
stimulation to otherwise frustrated Fort Camp students who
might go downtown to a beer
parlour if a Ubyssey campaign
had not got them better food."

Poet Reads,

Ribald Rhyme
By JACQUIE TRAFFORD
Looking like a man practising
in front of a mirror, poet-professor Theodore Roethke held 200
students spellbound Thursday as
he rocked rhythmically while
reciting poems by well known
contemporary poets.
Roethke eased .gently into the
poetry field with a few nursery
rhymes and ballads. Although
lie claimed he tends towards the
"ribald" in poetry, he explained
the rhymes by saying he has always been a "Mother Goose"
man."
He praised Louise Bogan,
whom he called a "female commando' because she always
wrote straight from the shdulder.
Roethke, who is a professor
at the University of Washington,
explained that he attempted to
write humorous, social and nature poems. He ended his recital
by reading a selection from the
four books he has had published.

Politicians
Battle
Over Bill
By BEV GARTRELL
Twelve spectators watched 43
eager politicians heckle each
other at the annual elected Mock
Parliament   in  Brock  Hall  last
night.
The mock parliament legislature was composed of 23 Liberals, forming the government,
10 CCF'ers, official opposition,
nine Conservatives, six Social
Creditors and two LPP representatives.
Before Premier Tony Lewis
could introduce his bill to reform BC's school system, tho
CCF opposition attempted to
bring in the issue of unemployment. Speaker of the Legislature
Jack Austin ruled them out of
order.
FINANCES AND BIBLES
Main bill of the evening, entitled "The Liberal Education
Act," provided for a selection
board to screen future teachers,
increased facilities for vocational and agricultural schools, increased finances, and a capital
grant of $10,000,000 to UBC. It
also provided that Bible readings in classrooms be discontinued.
Opposition to the bill was
strong. CCF'er Pat Thomas declared that it was simply election-bait, while Tory Doug Whitworth cracked, "This is really a
Liberal bill; there is nothing in
il."
FRIVOLOUS
Roy Trimble, speaking for
Social Credit, criticized the $10.-
000,000 grant to UBC, "How do
we know the University won't
use it frivolously, for pubs in
the Brock and things* like that?"
he questioned.
LPP'er Keith Hollands pointed out that there was no mention
of university housing in the bill,
and suggested that money be
specifically designated for that i
purpose. |
When division time came, the
Conservative party supported!
thc government and the bill was
tarried over opposition of CCF,
Social Credit and LPP members, j
Confusion reigned after CCF'er Ed Zilke complained that
shapely page Miss Marybeth
Burton was a distraction to the
honorable members. However, I
only Zilke seemed to be dis- j
traded, for the speaker's ruling j
against Miss Burton's activities
was overruled by a stormy protest.

FLYING DELEGATE
One high school student flew
in from Mayo High School in the
Yukon to attend the conference.
Committee chairman Jim Killen
reports that the unprecedented
appearance of a delegate from
the Yukon has led the committee
to consider changing the conference to the B.C. and Yukon High
School Conference.
Designed to give prospective
collegians a complete picture of
the campus scene, delegates will
sit in on regular lectures, eat in
the caf, dance in the Brock and
attend the UBC vs. Alberta Golden Bears basketball game in the
War Memorial gym.
High School students started
the conference in typical university style by registering in the
Brock at eight thirty this morning.
Delegates were, welcomed by
President N. A. M. McKenzie
and AMS president Ivan Feltham. They will meet the faculty
in a series of talks showing the
educational and financial opportunities the University has to
offer.
LIBRARIAN LECTURES
On Saturday, after a lecture
by librarian Neal Harlow, delegates will attend a panel discussion between members of the
Student Council and Parliamentary Forum on campus exrta-
curricular activities.
After a tour of Vancouver for
out-of-town students, the conference will be climaxed by a final
banquet and dance in the Brock
Saturday night.
High School conference is
sponsored by the Alma Mater
society, aided by the Extension
Department, Administration,
Alumni Association, Parent
Teachers Association and the
B.C. Teachers Federation.
Delegates from the provincial
high schools are met on arrival:
by Dave Hemphill and his com-j
mittce, and are billeted in pri-
vate homes in the city. Transportation costs are usually paid
by the high school and one of the
sponsoring organizations.

THE    UBYSSEY
Friday, March 5, 1954
OH SAY, CAN YOU SEE
More Issues
Next week The Ubyssey will go back to publishing two
issues a week. The Publications Board's share of last fall's
fee increase has been exhausted, resulting in the return to
the first term schedule of only two papers a week.
Student Council must seriously consider tiie advisability
of publishing more issues of The Ubyssey for the 1954-55 session. The enrollment will have increased to at least 5700
at that time. It was discovered in the first term that two papers
a week are absolutely inadequate for this university.
The unfortunate clash of outstanding events this term
(Columbia Bi-Centennial, elections and blood drive), seri-
otiSly handicapped, this paper in the coverage of legitimate
news. Added to this was the burden of faculty editions which
every Thursday took over one complete page of the paper.
Many small items have had to be left out, a hoped-for literary page failed to materialize and numerous events were
not given adequate coverage, all because of space limitations.
UBC is the third largest university in Canada. Next fall
it probably will be the second largest. At the CUP conference in Toronto, only the University of Toronto's Varsity
and the University of Manitoba's Manitoban were rated on
a par with The Ubyssey. Only Western Ontario's Gazefte was
rated above it.
Toronto, with approximately 9000 students, publishes an
eight-page paper five times a week. McGill, with only 200
more students than UBC, prints four times weekly a four-
page paper which is much larger than The Ubyssey. Western
Ontario prints their 12-page paper once a week.
And none of these papers is burdened with the excessive amount of advertising carried by The Ubyssey.
McGill's budget for their paper alone is $27,000. Here
the Publications Board is allotted $10,200 to publish The
. Ubyssey, the Intern, the handbook and a literary magazine.
UBC, the fastest growing university in the country, will han-
' dicap its own extra-curricular program unless the frequency
of publication of The Ubyssey is increased.
Disregarding the merits or demerits of the paper, whether
or not it is "a menace to students' morals," The Ubyssey is
i the only effective means of communication which reaches
_ all students.
Several candidates in the recent election made the statement that "The Ubyssey needs more issues." The Ubyssey
does not need any issues, it is the students who need more
' issues. Pubsters would probably be happier with one issue
a week in the hope that more of the staff would pass some
courses, but it is the requirements of the campus which
are the final criterion as to the frequency of publication.
This university will definitely need more than three issues
of The Ubyssey next year. »
GUEST  EDITORIAL
Women & Education
The Grand Feminist Experiment has now been in progress for better than one generation. We might ask, therefore, can female education be justified? Would it be wise to
continue the scheme?   Is it to the benefit of the Canadian
•taxpayer?
As far as this particular campus is concerned, have
women contributed materially either in the way of original
thought or indepedent action? The reply of an impartial observer could only be in the negative.
The typical co-ed, furthermore, seems to have been remarkably little affected by exposure to "higher" learning. In
all fairness, however, it must bo admitted that she often shows
considerable facility in passing exams. But those who appear
to show any sign of having read a newspaper are indeed
rare. While those who have read a book, not part of a prescribed course, are almost oddities. In general, it might be
said that the typical university woman is no better or no
worse than her counterpart outside this institution.
But, if there seems to bo little point in educating females, then what are the alternatives?  •
The answer is briefly this: What our country needs is
more people. And since it is fairly obvious thai it is the
women and not the men who have the children, the course
of action is clear. If we are to build a nation of 50 million
by the turn of the century there is no time to lose.
''But why," the skeptics might ask, "do we need more
people?" Basically, the answer is that a greater population is
required to develop more fully Ihe vast resources of the
nation. Also, there aro the harsh bul realistic considerations
of power politics. If wo are nol prepared to develop this
country ourselves, someone, is likely to do it for us. The
Australians, whose country was almost invaded by an Asian
power during the recent war, have become acutely aware of
ihe geopolitical dangers threatening a huge and sparsely populated area.  Their motto now is "Populate or perish!"
Furthermore, the raising of large families by women who
would normally' have been al university, would serve lo
overcome the problem of the differential birth rate, which
perplexes our experts on eugenics.
An additional poinl in favour of the policy of larger
lamilies is lhal il would cut down ihe incidence of mental
disturbances arising from cerebral birth trauma. The latter
is much more common amongst ihe first-born offspring and
so would be less frequent in a population coming from largo
families.
Finally, il   must   lie  remembered   that   population growth
•     is  a   powerful   stimulus   to   inveslnienl.    More   births   would
eventually,   .;>ivo   us,   not   only   more   producers,   bul   an   <'\-
pandod domeslie market   as well.

Q: How did you do it.-
Sid: There are a few basic rules to follow.
If they ask you for political affiliation, you
don't say Progressive-Conservative, as they
are apt to confuse you with the Labor-Progressives, and vice-versa. You don't say Liberal, as they are familiar only with the Republican and Democratic parties, and are
apt to think you belong to a left-wing splin-
terparty.   What you do say is: CCF.
Q: Why CCF?
Sid: You fool. The bright customs types
will ask what union you are affiliated with.
The reply is optional. You may use any rightist, United States union, such as A. F. of L.,
or United Steelworkers of America, etc.
Q: What if they get suspicious and detain
you.
Sid: This part is easy. You make polite
converation with customs. You comment on

blank world is creaming off the profits, you
comment on U.S. industrial genius and capacity, you feel that Canada should be annexed to the U.S,

Sid: You wait 'till evening, walk outside

across the stars and stripes fluttering at the

against the twilight skyline, you say quietly
and in a dignified manner how this sight reminds you of the day many years ago when
you were serving in the 361st Marine division, ar.d how you raised old Glory above the
bloody beaches of Okinawa. This has high
emotional impact.
Q: Then what?
Sid: Then customs will toast you with
a Kentucky mint julep and wish you Godspeed in your travels through the Republic.
CLARIFICATION
Dear Editor:
In your Thursday edition
vou carried a story headlined
"Priest's Talk Labelled 'Baloney' ."
Paragraph two quotes Father
Zsigmond as saying "All truth
is found in the teachings of the
Bible . . ." The statement as
quoted by your reporter does
not accurately convey the
whole concept.
The original statement was
made during a question period
at the end of Father's talk,
when an anonymous student
began a discussion with him on
the concept of absolute truth.
This student after apparently
running out of arguments left
the room with the unmannery
remark quoted in your headline.
Thc final paragraph reads in
part: "... the priest replies
that the church existed before
the Bible, and it followed logically that its teachings regarding the Bible must be consider-
ered valid." In your story
"Bible" has been substituted
for "New Testament."

Newman Club.
AB'S
TRACT
by Ab Kant
"Hell," said the Duchess, lighting a cigaret. She always
said "Hell" when lighting a cigaret.
You see, she couldn't seem to get her stogie even half
lit with the BCLCB alcohol she used in her Little Whoosh
pocket lighter.
On top of that, she was a relative novice in the rank ranks
of Lucky Lungers. Shoot craps with the boys maybe; sit in
the front row at the burlesque anytime; drink Aqua Velva
out of the bottle—how else? and neck ... no she didn't.
Smoking cigarets was the only vice she hadn't tried. Hades
Havanas, yes; cigarets, no.
It wasn't until she saw Princess Margaret inhaling hotly
down the length of a 36-inch ivory cigaret holder and blowing
the smoke into her. 36-inch bodice on every other newsreel,
that the Duchess decided to take the plunge.
Getting the plunge built into all her dazzling white gowns
was simple—smoking came harder. Whereas she had to put
something of. herself into the one, the other took a lot out
of her.   "
This can be readily appreciated when one considers that
they both involve inhaling. In order to keep up the evening
habit she had to inhale and hold it for long periods; in order to
keep up the smoking habit she had to inhale and exhale with
some regularity or else pass out before the evening got properly
under way.
In o Strapless Dilemma
She was in a dilemma. How to put up a good front for
her male companions and maintain a Luckies front for the
sophisticated castle girls?
Of course, little she knew that PII employs cunning to
keep her dress from falling beyond a certain level and still
make like a pipe outside one of those press-while-you-wait outfits. It's quite simple, really. If you've seen the same newsreels
you must have noticed that P II is always shown seated on these
ivory holder occasions.
Having had some little experience with this type of gown,
I can assure you that they have a tendency to tighten up when
the wearer is seated. At least, that's the way it works on a
chesterfield.
All the Duchess had to do was switch from Luckies to
Chesterfields.
The Duchess, however, being an avid cocktail party fan
(dancer, loo, when she's had enough oiling), never did find tins
out. Who ever heard of anyone able to find an unoccupied
chesterfield at a cocktail party.
Jusl why the Duchess used the word "Hell" is not known
lor certain. Perhaps a throwback from all those Hades Havanas
. she got started on while in finishing school.
This raises an incidental point. Why, when it is well known
that girls start drinking, start staying out all night, start
swearing in public, and start a multitude of other vices guaranteed to send them back to the family seat quicker than recall
of a Soviet envoy, if they are found out; why are these places
called finishing schools?
'Guess What Dad?'
Probably because that's what the girls are when the old
man opens the front door in mid-term to find daughter standing
there with suitcase and whimpering little bundle clasped nonchalantly under one arm saying, "Guess what. Dad?"
When last seen, the Duchess had made a start toward solving her problem. You could tell it had taken a lot out of her,
though. She wasn't able to put up a very convincing front. Her
eyes too, showed the cadaver-like effect of long squinting at
successive newsreels in vain attempts to discover Marg s
Method.
What she had dono. was stick pins into her bosom to ease
the strain there. Not safety pins—ordinary straight pins. This
thing had taken so much out of her that she was forced to turn
to delusory devices in order to maintain a semblance of a front

Students
Hear
Gostick
All Canadian Communists
should be "taken out of circulation" and put behind barb-
wires, .anti-Communist leader
Ron Gostick said Thursday noon.
He made the statement following a speech to 150 students, adding that LaborJProgressive Party
members should be outlawed
"They are just as bad as any
criminal or murderer," he said.
Gostick, whose talk on "McCarthyism" was sponsored by
Literary and Scientific Executive, is president of the Canadian
Anti-Communist League, and
editor-publisher of a small publication called " The Canadian
Intelligence Service."
"You might as well face up to
il, students. McCarthyism is here
to stay for a while," the bow-tied
Gostick started out.
"Ohhh, no," students shouted
back.
"Yes," he cried. "And pretty
soon you're going to see the lid
come off here in Canada, too."
Gostick said people who "hide'
behind the Fifth Amendment by
refusing to say anything on the
grounds that it may incriminate
them, prove themselves guilty.
"What more proof does an intelligent Canadian want?" he
asked.
Gostick said his cross-Canada
speaking tour was organized and
financed by the Anti-Communist
League. He refused to say how
many members the association
had.
But- he said the membership
was now growing at "ten percent a month."
Sociology
Department
Makes Plans
Plans are at present under
completion by the Department
of Sociology which will enlarge
the courses offered by the department to include a major in
Criminology at the undergraduate level and an M.A. and Diploma in Criminology at the
graduate level.
The proposed additional courses will envelope most phases of
the field of Criminology with
emphasis on the Canadian and
B.C. correctional systems.
The Diploma in Criminology
is intended for those who do not
attain the required grades as
set down by the Department of
Graduate Studies to study towards an M.A. degree.
The Sociology Department
hopes to have the services of
capable instructors like Warden
Hugh Christie of Oakalla, Mr.
Roxborough Smith of Newhaven
Borstal and both Adult and Juvenile Probation Officers in B.C.I

Deadline For Wed. March 10th
LSE President Johann Stoyva Thursday named

Open to all LSE club members, the award will be
made on the basis of outstanding contributions to club
activities, Stoyva said, with special consideration for
executive positions held and the introduction of original
programs.
SPRING PLAY
Bust For'Barbara Sought
Formation   Of   Unitarian
Club Announced Thursday
Formation of a Unitarian Club of UBC was announced
Thursday by provisional executive member Sandy Manson.
Manson, unsuccessful candidate in last week's AMS elections, said the club's purpose was to "promote unitarian
thought on the campus."
Liberal Says
'Must Re win
Liberties'
The perpetual battle for individual liberties must be re-won
by each succeeding generation.
This was the opinion of Frank
Lewis, Vancouver lawyer and
Liberal in his speech Tuesday
on the Liberal party's views concerning civil liberties.
Sponsored by the Civil Liberties Union, Lewis elaborated on
this opinion by citing the case
of Senator McCarthy's "terror
regime."
Contrasted to the Wisconsin
senator's methods, he said, was
the way in which the Liberals
handled the Gouzenko affair,
where there was no discrimination against those who, although
brought to trial, were later acquitted.
"There are those who believe
in authority and those who believe in freedom. "We (Liberals)
take the latter stand," said
Lewis.
Lewis said he agreed with his
party's stand and actions concerning the forcible confinement
of the coast Japanese during the
war as a violation of civil liberties.
However, he stated there was
an "extenuation because of the
absence of atrocities although
feeling was running high."
Library Liability
To  Be  Removed
The library's "mechanical
menace"—its revolving door —
will soon be removed and replaced with a modern double
set of swinging doors.
Librarian Neal Harlow said
that the door, which was installed at the time the library
was built, will be replaced at a
cost of approximately $2500.
Four member executive, set
• up provisionally until a permanent executive is instituted next
year, aj^proved a club constitution now up for its final draft.
"The people who we want in
the club are the people who can
and do get things done," said
Manson."
Lectures, literature distribution and discussion groups will
be some of the methods used to
disseminate ihe club's idea of
"Unitarian thought" on the campus.
Executive pro tern of the Club
are Vaughn Lyon, Don Olsen,
J. F. Brown and Sandy Manson.
The Unitarian Club's first public function will be a lecture
held March 17.

Bv PAT CARNEY
Something new has been
added to the traditional Bohemian atmosphere of the
Green Room.
Students homing across the
the quad to the cafe have been
astonished by the fervored
version of "Onward Christian
Soldiers" that waft from the
western corner of the Auditorium.
Campus thespians have
dragged themselves away from
the bridge table long enough
to start rehearsing for the annual Spring Play. This year,
George Bernard Shaw's co.n-
edy "Major Barbara," has been
chosen to showcase the Club's
theatrical talent.
ARMY THEME
Since it is based on a Salvation Army theme, members
have been scouring closets for
single breasted suits and have
moved in drums, accordion,
concertina and a hymn singing
glee club.
Still needed: one bust of
G.B.S..
Based on Shaw's theme that
"crime is the worst sin of all,"
the plot involves a young girl
torn between a desire to serve
the Salvation Army and to
marry a rich young munitions
manufacturer. She happily
combines the two, and serves
up both faith and bread to the
munitions workers.
MINOR FAULT
Only fault that members can
find with the play is a minor
one. Actresses are hotly protesting the heavy-handed tactics of Peter Smith in a rough
and tumble riot scene. It seems
that he slaps them around too
much.
This   ebullient   atmosphere
is carried through until the
last scene, which finds the
whole cast on stage perched
on live ammunition shells.
Norman Young, ex-Players
Club president, has turned up
on leave from the Airforce in
time to asist with the lighting
and staging of the production.
"Major Barbara" is directed
by Joy Coghill, who directed
Chekov's "The Seagull," earlier this season. Miss Coghill is
well known for her work in
Holiday Theatre and CBC. She
is currently on the staff of De
Paul University in Chicago.
Starring Sharon Scadding,
John Whittaker and Bob
Woodward, the play will be
presented in the Auditorium
March 11, 12, and 13. The production goes "on tour" during
May and will be staged in the
Interior,.Vancouver Island and
Washington.

Van Vliet Back With Potent Bear Team
To Battle F or Western College Crown
Craig,  Lucht  Featured  In  Battle
Of  Points.  Backboards,  Elbows
«-
By STAN BECK
The most outstanding basketball series played in Vancouver in many a moon will get underway tonight in the War
Memorial Gym when Thunderbirds meet Alberta Golden Bears
tot the Western Canadian Intercollegiate basketball championship.
The second game in the best
of three series will be played
Saturday   night   and   a   third
Same, if. necessary, will go Money night. Starting time for all
games is 8:30.
Golden Bears, considered in
the prairies to be the finest college team in Canada, boast an
impressive 19-1 won-lost record.
This record includes an 114-37
win over University of Saskatchewan and an 111-68 win last
week over Lethbridge. Bears'
sole defeat was at the bands of
the Harlem Clowns which was
avenged the following night.
LUCHT TERRIFIC
The star of coach Maury Van
Vliet's quintet is six feet seven
inch center Ed Lucht. 'Tis said
that Lucht had an off night when
he potted 88 points against the
Saskatchewan Huskies. However, Lucht will have our own
Geoff Craig to contend with so
the battle of the backboards and
elbows should prove quite interesting.
The brothers Macintosh, Norm
and Don are the other two stars
for the visitors. Alberta students
attending UBC claim that Don

Roger Stanton and Bob Gilhooley were left behind when
Birds headed south and ' they
were sadly missed. Gilhooley
will fly to Denver tonight to
give the team a boost in their
remaiping games against Colorado College.
ANDERSON BUSY
Outstanding for UBC in a losing cause was goalie Don Anderson who handled an unheard of
40 shots in the Birds' nets. Anderson was particularly brilliant
in the third period when he
handled 19 shots to Denver
goalie Smith's five.
Denver's greatest asset was
their polish around the nets.
Time and again the Denver forwards were able to work around
the UBC defence and test Anderson in the nets.
Mike Giroday was high scorer for UBC with a goal and an
assist. The other Bird tallies
were scored by Sherwood from
McMahon and Hawrelak trom
Giroday.
The game was clean and well
refereed with only five penalties being called.
is a better ball player than John
McLeod. Only time will tell, but
we think that John will snap
out of his slump and emerge as
the star of the series.
Off Birds' last few dismal performances our chances don't look
too good but coach Pomfret has
been resting the boys all week
and'he feels that the team has
gotten their worst games out of
their system.
UPSON DUE
McLeod and Craig should be
ready to play the type of ball
they are capable off and captain
Brian Upson is due for a scoring
splurge. *
It's this weekend or never for
Birds and we are going out on a
limb and predicting that Birds
will sweep the series ln two
straight games. - •
