 Acceleration
Unsound Say
Authorities
Acceleration of courses is unsound In the opinion of most educational authorities, President
N. A. M. MacKenzie told the ex
ecutive ef the UBC Legion
Branch at a special meeting
Thursday afternoon.
Purpose of the meeting was to
discuss proposals on how the
needs of veterans could be recon.
ciled with the decision of the university not to hold a spring session
ORIGINAL REASON
The president stated that the original reason for a special session
had been to enable the smooth
and rapid absorption of veterans
into the university, as soon as they
were demobilized. This need no
longer exists, he said.
Legion proposals will be considered by the authorities,. stated
Dr. MacKeniie.
Names of ex-service students
requiring a Spring Session are
still being taken at the Legion Office. It Is urged that all such stu-
t
dents register as soon as possible.
Students Wanted
For Postal Jobs
About 1400 University of British Columbia students have already applied for Christmas work
at the Post Office, according tc
university employment officials.
There are 1800 positions vacant,
but they will need to be filled by
those who have finished their ex*
amlnations by December 17 or IS,
states the employment service.
Jobs cannot be guaranteed- for
late applicants.
Employment officials ask those
wishing Christmas work to fill in
application* at HMT.
Research Award
Data Is Released
Information concerning the
Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Scholarships for
Science Research, may be obtained at the Registrar's office.
These scholarships, awarded to
post graduate students are intended
to enable selected students of
overseas universities, who have
already completed a full university course to devote themselves
for two years to research work
under conditions most likely to
equip them for practical service
in the scientific life of the Empire.

No. 29
SPEAKER ATTACKS
SOCIAL STANDARDS
Mrs. Maedi Kals, Vienna-trained psychologist, addressing
a University of British Columbia Student Christian Movement discussion group in Arts 204 this week, criticized marital
institutions as "a failure, not even up to Roman standards".
As a more practical alternative she suggested some
manner of communal living.
"Humanity is doing the splits,
because we are advancing dynamically on the scientific and technological side, while morals and customs stand on an old established
level," she said.
HUMILIATION
Mrs. Kail attacked the present
divorce rate, declaring it to be
"an abomination, when one has to
either go to the most humiliating
depths to obtain a divorce or remain permanently anchored by
marriage for life."
"Marriage is an Institution," she
stated, "but who wants to live In
an Institution, in almost invariably
a tragic state of tension."
She further criticized marriage
as being "a state ln which the per-
sons! freedom of one partner ls
absolutely subservient to the domination of the other partner."
UNSTABLE
It is this marital unbalance that
gives the modern child a narrow
and unstable mental basis with
which he must go out Into the
world, she said.
Continuing, Mrs. Kals said that
marriage today was "a hangover
from before the Industrial Revolution, now ratified and sanctified by
the social system."
She maintained that it had not
proved to be the best system for
our modern world, declaring "the
concept of family life ia becoming
obsolete—most mothers aro no
more qualified to bring up children
than thoy are to be librarians."
CAREERS
She said that most women preferred to have a career and enter
into business life, rather than ''take
on the drudgery of a housewife."
"In any case, the home In Its
own conception is dying out," she
added.

Radio Society.
The course, which is under tin.
direction of Ernie Perrault, Pete.
Duval and Jim Beard, will deal
with the field of radio writing in
twelve weekly lectures to laat

Introductory phases of radio writing and laid the basis for ensuing
lectures to come. Topic discussed included: characterization,
plot, sound, music, and market,

Ernie Perrault advised the students to work on a script, or at
least the idea for a script, over
the Christmas holidays.
The Society is planning establishment of a play-reading board
to determine suitable plays for
presentation on the URS program
"Thunderbird Theatre."
Magazine Orders
Near Deadline
"It's getting late," reminds the
executive of the magazine subscription drive, "and those students contemplating magazine
subscriptions for Christmas presents should have their orders u>
by December 7 to ensure delivery
by December 25."
To date sales have been go*.w
fairly steadily but more will be

They're Away Again
By Warren Darner
ENGINEERS PLAN FAREWELL PARTY
Campus Engineers will finish
off the present term in high style
with a farewell party to all those
smart boys who finish in only half
a year. The great fete, to take
place on December 20, at 9 p.m.
will be known as "The Post-Xam
Passing Out Party."
The entire body of the Kngtn-
eering Faculty is expected to be
on hand for this affair, celebrat.

Guests of honor are to be the
boys who are not coming back
after Christmas. Since the results
will not be ready until some time
after the party, it is expected thai
every engineer and his girl will
be on hand for the occasion.
SECRET
George Caidough and his band
are to provide the music for the
main event. If you happen to be
an Engineer, the only way to get
to  the  dance  is to buy a ticket

will keep all outsiders at the proper respectful distance.
Tickets to the affair are priced
at seventy-five cents per couple

Soft drinks and mixers will be
obtainable on the premises.
EN MASSE
Main point to observe, says EUS
officials, is that the entire rsd-
clad totie tribe is expected tc
turn out en masse to give their
comrades a rousing farewell. Engineers—don't divulge the secret
of the map!
This location has remained secret for generations, and EUS

competition was started in the early thirties.
DISCIPLINE COURT
REMODELS MAKE-UP
A scheme to make the action of the Discipline Committee
more effective is to be recommended to the Student Council,
Bill McKay, chairman of the Undergraduate Societies Committee, announced Monday.
This Includes the appointment of all members of undergraduate societies to the Discipline Committee; and also the
creation of a court consisting of the preeident and one other
member from each undergraduate goclety.

Prizek, an artist himself. The article is to be illustrated by reproductions of paintings by Picasso,
Cezanne and Matisse.
Short stories, light essays on the
campus scene, and poetry both
serious and non-serious are included in the student production.

professor of Slavonic studies, linguist and philolgist, will address
the Vancouver Institute, Saturday
at 800 p.m. in Arts 100. His topic
will be "The Slavs."
this new method would be far
more flexible, and will remove
some of the burden from the
shoulders of the undergraduate
presidents, who have more important things to do," McKay stated.
The plan is also designed to permit a court to be chosen quickly,
to prevent the same persons sitting
on each court, and, in view of the
increased reg'stration, to enable
Improper conduct esses to be
readily dealt with,  .
Technical issues call for a court

while routine oases (such as leaving
coats lying around the Brock all
night) would be judged by a
smaller court.
NO CLUBS
A further provision was made
that, in event of a Discipline chairman being the offender, a presiding judge would be selected by the
Students' Council.
McKay emphasized that the
function of the Committee would
be to prevent obnoxious conduct,
not to "slink around the campus
with big clubs, beating up indecent students."

LEAPING BEFORE
It is a mark of responsibility when the
members of the Undergraduate Societies
Committee take it upon themselves to investigate conditions which they believe need to
be remedied. But it is a sign of irresponsibility when the members of USC launch requests and petitions for investigations when
they have not first bothered themselves to
gather the necessary facts. Such irresponsibility may well be claimed by the Publications Board in connection with the charges
laid against the Board in regard to supposed
mishandling of Totem pictures and supposed
improper coverage in The Ubyssey of USC
activities.
Tiie Board finds it rather amusing that
USC should suddenly come to life and start
laying accusations against another group
when it has itself managed to get into some
sort of organized state only within the past
two or three weeks. May the Board remind
the members of USC that had the members
of the various Publications staffs delayed
until now to get down to work, there would
not be any Totem pictures or any Ubyssey
to attack?
The staff of The Ubyssey are the first to
admit that the paper needs improving, as
anyone who attends Pub meetings knows
only too well. The members of the staff do
feel, however, that the difficulties connected
with covering a suddenly swollen campus
are not to be solved overnight, especially in
view of the many material shortages which
hamper the newspaper business these days.
Furthermore, it is impossible to put hundreds of extra hours into a Gym Drive without being impeded in the ordinary task of
getting the paper's organization into shape.
One of the things which The Ubyssey
would like to improve is coverage of student
activities in the various faculties. The editors
hoped to work together on that with USC.
That committee did not begin to function
properly, however, until several weeks ago.
Now, without warning, USC allows a few
malcontents to rush it into an attack on The
Ubyssey.
Some of the groups on the campus who
hove taken the trouble to help The Ubyssey
to help them, have been satisfactorily surprised with the results. It might humbly be
suggested to the USC members who led the
attack that a similar policy on their part
would have brought, and will bring, results.
In the matter of the charges about Totem
pictures there is even more justification for
the Publication Board to question the tactics
of USC. In the first place, the investigation
was demanded before any member of USC
had bothered to visit either of the two Pub
officials who could have explained the reasons for the picture arrangements. Now
that some of the officials of USC have bothered to do that they have admitted that there
is no need for any investigation.
The arrangements for taking Totem pictures are far from ideal, but they are the
best that could be secured during a time of
supply shortages and inflationary prices.
The explanation has so far proven sufficient
for all but a handful of EUS executives who
seem to be spoiling for trouble. They will
get another chance to reconsider when the
facts are placed before a special USC meeting next Monday noon.
For the daring young men of EUS who
have been muttering slanderous accusations
about the motives of certain Publications
officials, a warning is issued—Slander must
he backed up, apologized for, or dealt with
by the proper authorities.
The Children's Hour       B" "•BEWUSY
This world Is a difficult world, Indeed,
And people are hard to suit;
And the man who plays on the violin
Is a bore to the man with the flute.
Good morning, my gomphiatic little gad-
flys and Totem Defaulters.   Fie, fie, fie.
If you don't mind, we'll go right ahead
today and disinter, for the second time, the
steaming body of old Henry L. Mencken.
Excuse us, Mr. Mencken—this won't take
Ung.
THE MAN MENCKEN
Anyway, sir, we just want to borrow, for
a few tense moments, your "Parable of My
Grandfather's Cat". You know—the tale
you once told about that terrible tabby
which your grandfather found and installed
in comfort before the fireplace. You recall
sir, how the old man took the thing in and
set about to be its friend; how he tried for
years and years, with every approach he
knew, to be a buddy to that cat. As you
know, he got nowhere with it. The surly
feline just looked at him, each time, with
THAT sort of a look, when he brought it
its breast of salmon and breadcrumbs. Even
got so the old man would get down on his
knees to it, hoping for a chat with the thing;
but the cat, it just backed away with her
eves saying "what now, you ogre, what
now?" Everything he did was suspicious
to that cat.
Well, sir, as you know, after some yean of
tills, the old man finally snapped. Rushing
to the woodbox, he jerked out a piece of
wood and cried: "now, damn you—you think
I'm an ogre, I'll be an ogre for you" whereupon he beat tiie thing to death.
MENCKEN  THE  F T?
That waa just your little joke, Mr.
Mencken—as we remember, the Fable appeared in one of your pieces called "How I
Became a Fascist", in which you related
how once you told some friends you had a
n<»w wheelbarrow, or something, and they
called you a Plutocrat. And then when you
made some change on a stock you held, and
acquired a maid, you became, in turn, a
Capitalist and an Exploiter and finally, an
Economic Royalist   Since your protests did
not help, you beat them to it and became
a Fascist.
We thought that was awfully funny, Mr.
Mencken. You know, sir, you could almost
make a serious point out of that fable, thinking back over some people we have met.
I'll bet if you met a deeply religious man
who kept telling you how unclean you were,
and how vile, and oh so unwashed and gave
you a tract each time to prove it—I'll bet,
after a couple of years, you might say 'what's
the use? If you insist I'm a sinner by god
I'll BE a sinner for you.' And rush down
to Hogan's Alley or somewhere and drink
cheap vino all night with a fat, blowsy bootlegger woman.  Well, something like that.
RE* NOMENCLATURE
We know who was almost an L.P.P. before there was an L.P.P., some years ago;
but if you asked an L.P.P. today about him,
the L.P.P. man will go all mad and white
«md say "THAT Tory", which is a swear
word, I think.
Maybe he'feels like your grandfather, Mr.
Mencken. Understand, now, we have nothing against L.P.P.—it's just that, gee, you
feel like an awful sinner when you don't
understand the Manifesto. We must be
weak-minded, Mr. Mencken. We once knew
an Orangeman in Toronto who Hated Catholic's Guts, and we almost became a Catholic.
But after that some Catholic friends'of ours
spoke so highly of Gilbert K. Chesterton
after G. K. adopted their faith that we read
him again to gee why we thought him a third-
rate poet. It didn't read any better. Anyway, we believe the L.P.P. and the Catholic
Church Hate each other'g Gutg and we
know our Orangeman rages at the viscera
of both. Mr. Mencken, how many people
can you be Grandfather to, anyway? Those
three just begin the list.
THE FACE OF THINGS
We often puzzle, at times like this, over
what it was Diogenes meant when he told his
friends: "Bury me on my face". When asked why, he replied: "Because in a little
while everything will be turned upside
down".
Thanks for coming, Mr. Mencken.

Certain Remnants of the freedom of the press movement
seem to have invaded the rodent kingdom. It is possible,
however, to tell the difference between a professional photog,
who gets permission from the subject of his art to take his
four pictures, and a shutterbug who is just wearing off his
first bad case of flashbulb smallpox.
Although his parents called him long-John F., the Toties
called him Stanfield for short.
OF INFERIORITY AND SHOES
One way to get over an inferiority complex is to get a job aa a ladles'
shoe salesman. This should really get down to the foot of the trouble,
providing the talesman can keep that arch look out of his eye.
. One of 'varsity's ace pix-shooters is known to be out gunning for the
Remnants of hi* professional honor.
It's all right to reserve tables at parties and the like, but these people
must keep their bottles under the table. Then the dry squad can't tell the
good from thc bawd.
The umbrella is a device for keeping one dry. That is, when it rains.
Although this rarely happens, the existence of too many bumberahoots
has prevented more than one pair of Toties from seeing eye to eye.
Maybe a Forester can tell us the answer to this riddle: Do they make
Christmas tea out of Christmas trees?
ON MUSIC AND SONG

Vandals in the weltering mass known as the general public. This would
enable them to be completely nauseated by the hearing of such a rude
assault against the citadels of Harmony and Counterpoint as shown in
"Without a S<ng" One should conclude, that except for his "Unfinished"

HOLIDAY VIEWPOINT
There is something enlightening from the viewpoint of the student
in somatics ir inviting a ohap to tea and then serving coffee. It's things
like that which prompt desperate Toties to burn down theu* boarding
houses. This practise has caused a song to be written about lt. Roomers
are Frying.
•Out of town Toties note bones. You can get a bunch of beautiful
blue forget-me-notes at the florists to replace common Christmas cards.
They will make a big hit If sent early enough and appropriately wrapped
in empty cheque books.
Week-end  Review
And Preview
BY LEE GIDNEY
This week, knocking off temporarily from marking Philosophy
papers, this column Indulged it-
telt In its favorite diversion, which
lias almost the dimensions of a
vice, the reading of a murdei
story.
The one we chose, "The Horizontal Man" by H-len Euatis, is t,
little more than the average
"murder story." But then the
genre of murder stories is ba-
coming in general "a little more"
than it formerly was. That ls to
say, the social criticism involved
implicity in the well-written detective story is aa accurately
sighted, and certainly more explicitly labelled "social" novels.
This is not to say, however, thai
we think all det.xtive fiction il
good, or even amusing to read.
"Lord Peter Whimsy" makes out
But to get back to Miss Eustis'
"Horizontal Man," we can quite
honestly recommend it for post-
examination holiday reading. The
murder of the 'horizontal man'
(that's how he came to assume
tha position) takes place wlUi
seeming straightforwardness in
the first chapter, but its actuai
psychological intricacies are not
completely elucidated until the
last chapter. In the intervening
pages Helen Eustis has succeeded
In recreating with some sensitivity
many of the people whose proto-
Thls novel Is an example of the
wildly and widely spreading
school of the 'psychological thriller,' so-called chiefly by the cover-blurb school of reviewers, and
exemplified by a recent film,
"Spellbound."
"The Horizontal Man" differs
from this highly suspect film
however, by observing tho psychological verities to some extent,
stomach misbehave alarmingly,
and "Hurculo Poirot" rather anaesthetizes our few extant "Uttle
gr.y cells."
Curates may also be people, and
English country-houses may also
te places, but surely their individual relation to significant happenings today is not exactly vita,.
No. Give us rather Raymond
Chandler, even though his man
"Philip Marlowe" sems to be able
to absorb more physical punishment and alcohol, and to handle
more women in a given time, than
the limitations of the human
frame would make probable. His
prose style, like his leading character, is good and muscular, and

types you may have encountered
around our own campus.
Because, you see, this murder
takes place In a small compact
university society, and it may interest you to know the 'horizontal man' is a lecturer ln Freshman
English. The Idea of murdering
your English lecturer may seem
even more than interesting to
some of us, especially at this happy sesfion of festal examination
The way Miss Eustis handles her
people successfully makes you
woncbr to how many of them tht
idea may have occurred and seemed good.
though it does suffer from the
perhaps occupational disease of
attempting to attach what couIq
be called "glamour" to the labyrinthine ways of emotional abnormality.
But Helen Eustis has realized
her characters to this extent, that
you feel almost as If you had sat
in on some of their lectures,

McMaster Decrees
Gowns Or Fines
HAMILTON, Nov. 29, (CUP)-
Fourth year students at McMaster
University must now wear gowns
under penalty of fine."
The decree is a result of a decision passed by majority vote at
the Senior meeting last year and
since ratified by the Student CouncU.
Gowns must be worn at all les.
tures, ln the libraries and the upper halls of the two main university buildings. Failure to comply
with the order is punishable by
fine under student government
rules.

Marriage Rules
A soldier shall not bs harried
on the married roll until ha hu
attained the age of twenty-three
years, according to Army Head*
quarters announcements made recently.
Pr.vious regulations stated thai
a scldler applying for permission
to marry had to wait until there
was a vacancy on the married
list. If he married before, he
could not draw an allowance for
his wife until such time as there
was a vacancy.
Now, he may have both his
wife and her allowance without
waiting too long.
In the case of Veterans of World
War II, there are no restriction*
regarding marriage. They may
draw their extra twenty dollar!

Ltttcn To The Editor
XMAS GIFT ?
Dear Sir:
If the student who stole a new
winter overcoat from tne Caf on
Wednesday will give some sort oi
forwarding address, I'll send him
thu scarf that was generously removed from the sleeve and left
hanging on the peg. 1 was glad
of the scarf on the lonj'„ cold ride
home, end I would like to show
my appreciation by ghlng it to
him.
I know how the thief i»lt about
needing a coat, for I did not find
it easy to raise the cash for one
myself. It was weak of nn not to
steal.
There is something fine nnd ennobling about hanging around a
washroom until you see r likely
coat hung up, and about the daring of walking quietly into the caf
behind the boob who trusts you,
then waiting with splendid nonchalance until you see his back
vanish into the ltne-up for what
Is going to be a damned expensive
cup of coffee.
It requires high courage to steal
that which is neither locked not
guarded.
Seriously, I devoutly hope that
those students who work with
him from time to time find oc-
casion to return to the thief the
black eye that his actions give us
all—and considering the man'i
character I know that' occasions
will arise. The calm deliberation
evident in leaving behind a scarf
that he considered too easily identified shows thst he has stolen before and will again. He Is sscure
in this theft, but next time, or the
next again. . . •

Old Boys Hold
Reunion Dinner
Brentwood College Old Boys
will hold a dinner Saturday evening, December 7, in Salon B of the
Hotel Vancouver beginning 6:15 p.m.
Mr. Chip Molsen th'? new "Head'
will be present as well as many
other Victoria Old Boys. The dinner is planned in conjunction with
the St. George's—Brentwood rugby
game on Saturday afternoon at
2:30 p.m. ln the University of British Columbia Stadium.
All those Old Boys now at UBC
who wish to attend the dinner are
requested to telephone Doug Belyea at Bayvlew 373Lbefore ten pjn.
Monday night as accomodation is
limited.
Bathless students at the University of British Columbia were
advised to take "a cold shower
every morning," to make them receptive to 8:30 a.m. lectures.
Claiming that "the library gets
pretty high at times," a professor
—who prefers to remain anonymous — suggested more ab.
lutlona for students who make
themselves socially obnoxious.
'It is good for your soul to do
something against your will," ao>-
ded the professor.
He said he would run seven or
eight miles with anyone—preferably a group—and match them to
a dinner. "I'd probably come in
last," he said, "but I'd cover the
distance."
Campus Inspires
Xmas Card Design
Campus scenes of University of
British Columbia are to appear
before thousands of Canadians as
a design on Christmas cards and
postcards, according to information received from the University
Extension Department.
Edward Goodall, Canadian artist, now visiting UBC to make
pencil sketches, has offered to donate all commissions from camput
sales of cards to university funds.
Medical examination of the student "body" is almost complete,
reports the University of Bfttlsh
Columbia Health Service.
With only one week left for examination of civilian students,
nearly all women undergraduates
have been tested.
"The men however, have been
much more lax about turning up
for appointments, and aa • result,
examination of the male population has proceeded at a slower
rate," said health officials.
Also, no provision has been
made by the physical education
department for medical approval
of men now playing on UBC
teams.
Upon completion of the civilian
examinations, student vets with
discharges dated 1945, or earlier,
will be examined. This check-up
is scheduled to start immediately
after the Christmas vacation.
NOTICE
The Symphonic Club will present a program of recorded music
on Monday evening, December 2,
ln the Stage Room of Brock Hall.
The program, which will begin st
6:30 p.m. and last until 10 p.m.,
will consist of the "Appassionato
Sonata" by Beethoven and Mozart's opsra, "The Marriage of
Figaro."
The question as to whether Japanese - Canadian born students
should be allowed to return to
the University of British Columbia has been widely discussed on
the campus since the Parliamentary Forum debate last weak.
Students whose opinion was
asked, all agreed emphatically
with the decision of the Forum-
Japanese students should be admitted to the University. Here are
statements from students interviewed by the Ubyssey.
BEACHAM
Ted Beacham, taking first year
Arts, said, "I definitely feel they
should be allowed to come. There
shouldn't be racial discrimination
if we are going to have worlu
peace."
Peggy Fullerton, In third year
Arts was of the same opinion. "I
think Japanese students should be
admitted by all means, if they
comply with the laws of our
country. If they're interested in
the welfare of Canada and are
loyal Canadians there should be
no distinction made."
LEVACK
Alan Levack of Port Stanley,
Ontario, first year Forestry student, msde this statement. "They
should be allowed to come. They
are as good as anyone else. After
all, we're all people."
Mary Sibley of Victoria, third
year Arts coed, stated: "They certainly should be allowed to enter
university but it will require great
courage on their part as there it
so much racial antipathy,
tally at the coast"

Hundreds of men and women are employed in

The Dutch Bast Indies cannot begin to use all the

hundreds of tons of it come to Canada.
Less than three per cent of the Nickel produced
in Canada is consumed in Canada. The rest is

are exported.
Canadian Nickel, sold abroad, does, two things.
It helps pay for products we need which are not

to pay the wages of thousands of Canadians employed in the Canadian Nickel industry.
By constantly expanding the use of Nickel at home

BOB HAMILTON
.. A Star of Last Year
'BIRDMEN VISIT EUGENE
FOR SECOND WEBFOOT GO
With one battle against the Ch.
egon Webfoots already gone by
the boards, the Thunderbirds of
UBC take to the maples of McArthur court on the campus at
Eugene tonight in the second
•una of the double bill with th*
Duckmcn.
As the "Birds will be playing
one of tht toughest teams on the
Pacific Coast in this series, lt will
probably be the hardest card they
will have this season. With the
absence of many of the stars of
last year, it should be a pretty
tough series all the way round
for the students, who are still in
the growing stage as yet this yew.
The gentleman who is pictured
above is one of the boys that the
Vancouver fans have seen in action for the last two years. In fact,
if the Oregon squad had bee-
coming up here for the past four
years, we still would have seen
him every year. He ls Bob Hamilton who last year completed his
fourth year with the team and was
captain of the squad last year.
When the Blue and Gold's kids
have finished with this series,
they will settle down to the book*
for awhile in preparation for that
period known u "Exam time.''
But being thoughtful gentlemen,
the "Birds have arranged a game
for December » so that the kidt
will have somewhere to go and
get rid of their worries with every
one else.
WILDCATS RETURN
The opposition will come in tht
form of Western Washington who
the local darlings defeated not so
long ago. That was the first game
that the 'Birds played this season
against American competltiou.
After a full session of hoopla antics, Blue and Gold kids left the
Bellingham floor with an extr«
feather in their head-dress.
The game on the 20th will be
a return contest and needless to
say, the visiting team from down
south will be ail out to get that
win back. Both teams will have
a lot of extra experience that they
didn't have before, all of which
makes the contest a natural.

MISSED TWO
The students missed the services
of two of their regular defence-
men, Owen Woodside and Walter
Wilde, although Terry Nelforo
and Bob McLeod turned in their
usual bruising performances behind the blue line. Penalties also
played a part In the Thunderbird
downfall, Vancouver scoring three
times while they had an extra
man. A number of passes went
astray because the blue sweaters
of the White Spots were practically the same shade as the well-
known Varsity blue.
Th defeat left the Birds tied

Barry Morris will be on hand,
and promise to give the Vancouver
Lions a greet deal of trouble.
The game is to be played under
the new rules which gives each
team a chance to substitute fresh
players at a moment's notice. This
assures spectators of seeing action
all through the game and it truly
becomes the fastest outdoor game

Each ticket of admission that is

is a Frigidalre whose value is
