Course Change
^^ e
Deadline Oct. 7
LAST DAY for change of student courses will be Monday, October   7.   according   to   Charles   B.

The deadline was previously announced  as  October   1.
Each student is responsible for
tne correction of hi.s registration.
Credit may not be claimed for a
cvur.se for which the student has
not registered.
playing according to
thc Canadian code, the Blue and
Gold defeated the Western Canadian Universities to walk off
with the Hardy Cup. Although
thc boys have naturally had
trouble adopting the American
system, they are shaping up well.
CREDIT
Most of the credit for moulding
the squad into the form needed
for the faster American type ot
ball should go to Greg Kabat, the
coach of the Thunderbirds.
This marks the second straight
year that the mighty mentor
coached the Varsity grid kids. He
in probably better known around
Vancouver for his tutorial task
over the "Fighting Irish" of Vancouver College.
PUSHOVER
'Birds will not be up against
any pushover this afternoon when
they take the field as it is thought
that the visiting squad is the
strongest in the setup this* year.
The last three years before the
war saw the Bearcats come up with
the title and although that was a
long time ago, the rumours say that
the American squad is as strong
as ever.
On top of that, the Williamette
boys have' a game under their
belt which helps any team. It is
true that they were beaten but
they were downed by a team that
ia considered on a par with UCLA.
The main thing is that they have
had some experience on the field.
ROSY
But all is rosy in the Thunderbird camp. Spirit is most certainly
high and the boys are going all
out to make every play count for
their hard-working coach.
Day-dreaming brings back the
names of UBC stars of the past.
Such boys as Ed Ryan, and Reg
Clarkson have played for the old
alma mater and they could tell
you that a Varsity team will always fight all the way.
EXPERIENCE
Most of the boys have had
plenty of experience on the gridiron before. Such fellows as Herb
Capozzi, Gordy Genge, Jim Goloubef, Rex Wilson, Don Nesbit,
and hosts of others are all common names to the football fan
at Varsity.
They'll all be out there to cele-
biate one of the biggest days ln
the year for Varsity students. It
should be a real college affair, It
won't be the 'Birds fault if it isn't.
Niosi to Play at

BERT NIOSI with his 15 piece
band will play at the Stadium this
afternoon to help the football season off to a good start. Tonight,
their Vancouver visit is to be climaxed when they appear at the

GYM GROUP
On Thursday night, Bert Niosi,
sponsored by the War Memorial
drive played for a crowd of an
estimated 1500, in the gymnasium.
According to Penn MacLeod,
chairman of the War Memorial
Drive, the dance was "one of the
[Host successful ever held in the
Armories".
VIOSI MUSIC
Music in the Niosi style, ranged
firm the sweet and sentimental to
the straight-from-Dixieland jazz of
the famed 'little band'. Vocals
1'eatuiecl the voice of Pat Berry.
Tickets for tonight's dance arc

COUNCIL PROPOSES
AMS FEE INCREASE
STUDENTS attending the semi-annual general meeting of the Alma Mater Society in the Stadium next Tuesday
noon will be asked to give their blessing for a new plan
designed to raise money for the Memorial Gymnasium Fund.
Student Council has proposed that a three dollar portion
of the AMS fees which is now used for retirement of the Brock
Hall bond issue, be earmarked instead as a yearly levy for
the Gym Fund.
v. bile
$1.35.
iclmis
it the Bate will be
Don McRae, treasurer of the
Alma Mater Society, pointed out
yesterday that as the three dollar
levy was orginally approved by
n general meeting of the Society,
any change in the disposal of the
money should be passed upon by
another general meeting.
POSSIBLE
McRae told the Ubyssey that It
was possible for Council to put
forward thc proposal because the
AMS would be able this year to
complete the retirment of the $80,-
000 Brock Hall bond issue.
He also indicated that a further
proposal might be put forward at
thc meeting, to the effect that the
yearly levy be increased to five
dolllars, thus increasing the AMS
fees to fifteen dollars.
INCORPORATED
As Alma Mater Society fees arc-
incorporated as part of the university fees, any increase approved by the students on Tuesday
would have to receive the sanction of the Board of Governors.
This year's president of the
AMS, Ted Kirkpatrick. has called
upon every student to attend
Tuesday's meeting "because of
the desirability for n majority ol
tl.e .students to approve such •
financial measure as the proposal
in respect to AMS fees."

REASON FOR ATTENDANCE
If for no other reason than that financial
matters will be in the spotlight, every student should make a special effort to attend
next Tuesday's Alma Mater Society meeting
in the Stadium.
As one of the two regular general meetings
of the Society it will be one of the few oc-
• casions during the year when undergraduates will be able to take part directly in
the government of their affairs.
On the assumption that anything which
touches a student's pocketbook is an important matter, it should be safe to say that
the meeting will be an extremely important
occasion for members of the student body.
Undoubtedly the most important item on
the agenda is the proposal to authorize the
transfer of the part of the AMS fee which
now is earmarked for retirement of Brock
Hall bonds to a yearly contribution to the
Memorial Gymnasium fund.
It if possible to make the suggestion because the Brock Hall bond issue will be
retired during this financial year.
That part amounts to three dollars and if
the general meeting of the AMS decides on
Tuesday to authorize the transfer, the drive
to build the Gym will be boosted considerably in the direction of success.
It is also expected that a further motion
will be introduced to increase that amount
from three dollars to five dollars, thus increasing the AMS fee to fifteen dollars for a
number of years to come. Because the AMS
fee is Automatically incorporated as part of
the university fees, and because so many
present students are veterans having their
fees paid by the government, any decision
to increase the amount of those fees would
not cause any hardship for most of the
students.
On the other hand, the increase would
still affect personally several thousand undergraduates for a considerable time.
For that reason, it is practically and morally imperative for a majority of the students
to attend Tuesday's meeting in order to give
proper backing to any decisions affecting
student finances which may be made at
that time.
KICK-OFF
Several sentences remain to be said about
this afternoon's football game.
To begin with, the Ubyssey—on behalf
of UBC's undergraduates and alumni—
extends its sincere wishes to the Pacific
North West Inter-Collegiate Conference for
a successful football season.
Secondly, a warm welcome is extended
to the Willamette Bearcats.   The Ubyssey
wishes the Bearcats their just share of
the breaks in today's game and a happy
visit to Vancouver.
And upon UBC's own Thunderbird football squad a wish for success in large quantities is fondly bestowed.
Lastly, to everyone connected with arrangements for the game, thanks are despatched, along with hopes that their troubles
may be few.
The Children's Hour
By   LES BEWLEY
THIS YEAR of Our Lord, 1946, October.
A bountiful harvest and a good year for
farmers generally in spite of muche cruelle
pryce peggynge and the usual slugges, wee-
vylles, borers, blackbyrds & blyghtes.
Much moanynge also in the village square
and taverns anent monneye; also much pub-
lick styrring and Unrest. Which gives the
public authorities, kiddies, much more
concern than you might think.
REDCOATS ARE COMING
Someday soon, it is promised, your little
brother is going to be led, half-asleep and
spattered with his morning egg, into his
school Assembly Hall or Auditorium. Then,
when he emerges from the struggle for a
0
back seat and finally rubs the marmalade out
of his long eyelashes—lo and behold! There
as big as life and twice as resplendent, will
be a granite-faced slightly discomfitted Manfred of the Mounties, arms squared across
chest, sitting bolt upright, knees and feet
well apart.
And after a proper introduction by that
colorless sparrow of a man, the principal,
Manfred, sweating slightly but iron straight
and resolute as hell, will fix your kid brother with a fixed stare and tell him a few
things he should know.
THE COSSACKS
Included among those things will be: What
the R.C.M.P. Is; What Is Law and Order;
What Law and Order Mean To You. And
So On. Now I hope Manfred won't go at it
quite that way, because, if he does, your kid
brother will hear the words Law and Order
like the distant beating of the surf as he
loses his eyes in the scarlet of that chest.
Far, far better if Manfred held some snivelling criminal at arm's length for the whole
half hour; but that would only serve to distract your little brother's moronic gaze. More
important, Manfred's job has less to do with
relatively unimportant criminals than with
the truly massive task of obtaining respect
for public authority.
To hope that your brother won't, when he
grows up to the approximate size and shape
of, and with an outward resemblance to a
man, when Manfred appears with a horse
and the thankless job of preventing our village from being put to the torch, eject a
stream of saliva through his front teeth and
bleat, through rubbery lips, the cry of
"Cossacks". Or that he may not, when the
word "politician" seeps through the fat between his ears, remove his Saturday cigar
from barbered jowls and croak: "crook". Or
to show his lack of respect for himself by extending his lack of respect for those in authority who have manifestly not earned it
to those who manifestly (but not to him)
have.
NO THOUGHTLESS PHRASES
To learn, in short, that if the columns of
our zany but relatively peaceful society
come cannonading, someday, about his ears,
it will be only in part that they were rotten
in spots. But largely because he carved
them, using his tongue as the dull blade,
halfway through with dirty words and
thoughtless phrases; then, at long last, pulled
these pillars down with the Samsonian monumental, awe-inspiring weight and thrust of
his dumbness and the power of his backside.
Then, when he learns he has won a Pyrrhic
victory, he will rush off to see his dentist,
and not be too pained to find LAFF in place
of HANSARD in that worthy's waiting
room.
But please, Manfred, don't make the mistake of calling this Samson an Anarchist.
A real Anarchist believes that everyone may
yet be so good he may eventually require
no authority to prevent his being bad. For a
lucid explanation I refer you again to my
favorite authoress, the late "Red Emma"
Goldman "I Love My Life").
But we grow too serious apace. Tis only
your brother we spoke of, to be sure. And
perhaps, kiddies, just perhaps—this is the
way it was meant to be.
.. omens and portents
By NANCY MACDONALD
UNDERGRADUATE Society has been jinxed from the
beginning.
Two years ago when the student Council decided to.en-
large the student governing body, ideas ran rampant for
several weeks on the form in which it should be done.
TWO SOLUTIONS
Eventually, the field was narrowed down to two solutions and the
campus became un armed camp. To make matters worse, the annual
spring elections of the AMS were coming up.
Two cnnclidateb for a student position each supported one of the
solution?. Campu; feeling became tense.- To relieve the situation, an
emergency AMS meeting was called.
Af'.-er a lon« and heated dc-bate at the only packed AMS meeting in
mans' yours;, it wa.s decided to leave a revision Committee sit on the question and present their findings to the Council.
This was duh done, and as a result of the committee recommendation,
two new members were added to the Student Council, bringing the
exi tint; nuir.be> up to eleven. It was,decided that the Sophomore class
needed a i oprcv. nt .tive and they got on. It. was further decided that thc
second, addition;! member would be the President of the Undergraduate
Societies Committee, a composite body made up of the executives of all
tho Undergraduate So.ielies-.
Hugh McLeod, whj had been elected to the position of president of
tiie defunct Men's Undergraduate Society, was chosen to fill the newly-
formed position.
ACTION FRUSTRATED
Theoretically, the position of U"C should be the most powerful on the
campus. And perhaps that's what Council was afraid of. Whatever the
feeling, the actions of the Undergraduate Societies Committee were frustrated at every turn.
If Council had been wise, it would have tried to gain the support of
such a group, as the present number attending the university makes lt
impossible fer the student governing body to keep In touch with all the
students.   And tho USC can do so.
The Committee, made up orabout 40 members representing every
faculty, has the opportunity to keep In touAt with every student on the
campus.   It could do so, if properly organized.
But little or no encouragement has been given.
PRESIDENT DISQUALIFIED
As the result of several ridiculous mistakes made at the end of last
term, the newly-elected president of the USC was declared ineligible, and
was automatically disqual fled.
This fall the elections for USC have come up again. And evidently no
one chooses to run for the position. At least no nominations were handed
in to the AMS at the deadline. We can see the reason why no one would
want to run, but if that position Is not filled, it will be a distinct loss to
the un versity and student government.
Every position on Council is valuable, but none more so than president of the Undergraduate Societies Committee. Let's not see it just fade
out of existence.

jury, Professor Ambrose Patterson of the University of Washington.
However, you're still on your
own in doing your own judging.
Since, as we said last year, there
never has been a divinely right
jury which would make mathematically precise estimates of all
entries, so that all you'd have to do
would be to go around clutching
your  catalogue and  mark  T for
I STILL don't think anything te
gained by rating artists In order of merit even if it were possible—it usually breaks down into
a list of the personal preferences
of the August Critic. But there is
another level which may be legitimately established, that between
competence and a certain freshness
of vision and that absolute fusion
of technique and poetic content
which sets aport the masters of a
craft — Shakespeare, Rembrandt,
Beethoven, Plato.
Thinking in these terms you'.ll
find something interesting if not
always excellent in each of the
sections of the show. Except the
sculpture which seemed fairly dead.
In the black-and-white room look
for James Dalzell Johnston's "Man
of Aimless Vitality" and a reclining nude by Pam Regan. In the
water-colour section there are two
Shadbolts worth looking at. I have
it on the authority of three female
characters who I shadowed arouno
that these contain "typical Shadbolt humour" and that "he's got
something, hasn't he?"
WE WERE, ourselves, so roused
to effort by enthusiasim for "The
End of the Bench, that we routed
the aforesaid Thomas out and engaged him in controversy—about
himself and his paintings, to be
sure. He was born, it appears, in
1915, has studied chiefly in Toronto,
has never been abroad and feels
himself that he has developed a
lot in the past four years. His
philosophical point-of-view, he
assured us, was to be found implicit in his paintings. "Whether
the treatment is cynical or serious
depends on the subject and my
emotional reaction" he told us, and
true art and F for false art and
then check with the master copy
to see how good your score, and
your taste, was.
Before recording the remarks we
made on our catalogue we'd like
to re-advance our own particular
credo of criticism. Precision in the
arts is not only possible but very
necessary for expression of any
stature, since even distortion must
have the stamp of the unique personal vision to be valid, yet in
evaluation, this precision of judgment can only establish levels.
That is, by setting certain technical
standards to rule out incompetence, a sort of "below-which-no"
level. Above this judgftig good or
bad art on the use made of that
technical equipment.
•
Leaving Mr. Shadbolt in possession of whatever it is he's got,
you might pursue the rest of the
water-colours up the stairs. Forge
on past the two paintings there of
the Gallery's founder, Mr. H. A.
Stone, and of "The Woodcutter's
Little Daughter," and go into the
room on your left where you'll
find one very nice small water-
colour tucked away, "Portrait," by
lone Mclntyre.
Among the 130 oil paintings the
work of one young artist is, I
think, outstanding this year, Lionel
Thomas' "End of the Bench" and
"The Octopus Ride." You might
look for Peter Aspell's "Mary" or
Myfanwy  Spencer's "Room  1205."
Mr. Lawren Harris, Chair.nan
of the Exhibition Committee, is
showing two more of his mountains,
one of which was at least negatively identified for me by my
lunatic trio as, "not futuristic, my
dear, look at those ripples." The
things they said about Mr. Thomas
are not the sort one transcribes
but they should encourage him.
At least he has the proper people
disliking him.
went on to describe how he had
painted "The Octopus Ride" from
memory after a single intense impression. There are, he concludes,
two approaches possible, the sentimental representational, or the "no
holds barred," where what you see
must go down in spite of the truth,
or what may appear to be a superficial truth.
Mr. Thomas teeiches at the Vancouver School of Art and is contemplating a show of most of his
recent canvasses, out here at UBC
in the Tuckshop Studio, or in the
Brock, if space is available, sometime in November. Watch for this,
IT IS INDEED a pleasure to
notice that previous female contention In regard to a singular
and often brazen audacltj of
skirt length is being irepLw-sd by
a more beautiful and aesthetic
representation of the female calf.
Skirts are getting longer.
THE PRICE IS HIGHER
A new and vastly improved
system of indexing in this year'.?
student directory indicates that
the jlphab;>t is here to stay. It is
plain that many students are unaware of the inestimable value ot
the publication. Last year it cost
a dime. This year it costs two-
hits. Most of them a.e sold. It is
of no valu'i to people who spend
their week-ends in Seattle.
THE WICKED WEED
Nicotine Nancy and Weedy Willy arc going steady. These two
children by nature hive been
spreading their produce all over
the campus. As the chief scaven
ging eliminations expert says "Put
your fags in the garbage can and
no butts about it."

Don and Howie are living on a
five-and-a-half acre farm near
Cloverdale, which Don bought
last year on his return from five
years overseas service with the
RCAF.
They drive the thirty miles to
UBC each morning in time for
8:30 lectures in 1930 Chev coupe
which they affectionately call
"Shirley." Accompanying them is
another ex-Air Force student,
Bryan Vincent, who lives close by

LORD RETIRES
EXPIRATION of the term of
office fer Mr. E. Lord as Senate
represenative on the board of
Governors was announced by ths
Hoard today.
Elected members of the Senate
hold office for a term of three
jears and no elected member may
represent the senate more
than six years consecutively.
Mr. Lord has been on the Board
for six years, since' -5£, v. as

gets up when the alarm rings at
5:55 a.m. ("not six," Howie insists,
"because that would mean we'd
have to leave at 7:10 instead oi
7:05"). Howie follows Don to the
kitchen as soon as he gets his
eyes open and has finished voicing
his opinion of alarm clocks. To*
gether they prepared breakfast.
Bryan calls at the house at seven
to And them In the midst of shaving and washing dishes (they do
both at the same time). The usual
procedure Is for Brian to warm up
the temperamental "Shirley" while
Don and Howie finish the dishes.
DRINKER
Of the trip into Varsity, Howie
says:
"We usualy make it In 57minutes,
unless we have trouble such as
gas shortage, which did occur last
week. Shirley's a very heav^
d: inker. But the return trip in the
afternoon takes somewhat longer,
probably due to the fact that more
people are awake at supper time
to get in our way."
Arriving home, they set to
work preparing supper, with one
ef them peeling home grown potatoes while the other gets the
hamburger in the frying pan, and
opens a can of soup or vegetables
NORMAL STUDENTS
After supper is over and tht
dishes are out of the way, Don and
Howie act like normal students,
hauling out books, pencils, etc., and
nuking an attempt to conquer the
problems of the day.
Don, in Applied Science, claims
to have the tougher course, though
Howie seems to And enough to keep
him busy in an eighteen-unit Arts
course.

BATCHING
When asked if he thought batching was better than living in a
boarding house, Don answered:
"The way we see it, we're helping
the housing committee by providing our own living quarters. What's
more, if we don't like the cooking
we have nobody to blame but
ourselves.

Expect 4000 To Witness
Afternoon's Grid Battle
 By NAT 'HySMER
THIS AFTERNOON before a crowd expected to nudge
the 4000 mark, the 1946 edition of the Varsity Thunderbirds
takes to the gridiron, as the Northwest Pacific Conference
setup brings the highly-touted Willamette Bearcats to the
Point Grey campus.
The kickoff, slated for 2:00 p.m. climaxes a hectic month
of feverish practice, in which gregarious Greg Kabat, shrewd
UBC mentor, has run his charges through the fundamentals
of American football.

A-GRIDDING WE SHALL GO
TRUMPETS BLARING, Blue and Gold banners waving,
a blue sky and thousands of screaming spectators—yes, that's
the scene that Varsity's students will be taking in this afternoon. The big day has arrived. The Willamette Bearcats
are here and the first game of the American grid season is
ready to go.
But the contest is more than a "first game of the season"
to UBC fans. It has a much greater significance to every
sport-minded citizen at Varsity. Yes, it is the first major
sport event of the season but what is greater than that is the
fact that it is the first game that the Thunderbirds have ever
played under the American code.
Basketball  Surprised  Them
It might even be called an experiment. All Varsity remembers when Bob Osborne announced at the beginning of
last year that UBC would be playing basketball against
American competition in an organized college loop. Many
people wondered at that time how the Varsity casaba experts
would stack up beside the highly touted American teams.
A great many students were dubious that it would ever
work out. It doesn't take a sport fan ,to tell you today who
won the Pacific North West Conference hoop crown last
season. The Blue and Gold of UBC stole the show entirely
from the other squads in the loop.
So now we're taking another step, a much larger step,
and the whole University is waiting to see the results. Because we have never played the American version of grid
before, we are at a disadvantage, but if spirit means anything,
we have the situation under control.
I don't think there are many who are so optimistic as to
say that UBC can win the grief title this year but that doesn't
mean that we can't get in there and show the boys we want
them to win.
A Great Future Lies Ahead
Because you see, it's another "first" for UBC and it
might easily develop into another trophy some day in the
future. The Blua and Gold is making a name for itself and
this is just the beginnng.
The Radio Society deserves a pat on the back too because
they are also behind another "first" for UBC. The opening
game today will be broadcast by the Radsoc and for the
first time, the game will be aired by Varsity boys.
Commentators for the contest are Jack Cowan and Johnny Farina, two sport minded gentlemen in the Radsoc
Yes, kiddies, today is indeed a great day in the tribe.
See you at the game this afternoon.

Doug Reid, who emerges as the
nucleus of the squad in the fullback slot, is a swivle-hipped
ground - gainer of the tripple
threat variety. Garnering his experience on the 1941 and '42 Kitsilano powerhouses and as a first
string backflelder on the Thunderbirds in '43 and '44, Reid makes
his return to the turf after two
ye3irs in the Navy.
Phil Guma/i, a teammate of
Reid's on Johnny Farina's high-
school squad, dons the cleats as
a halfback on the squad fulfilling
a major share of the blocking
duties in the offensive formation.
Don Nesbit, who sparked the
English Rugby squad to the McKechnie Cup last year by virtu*
of his inspired broken field running, and his educated toe, will
occupy the other halfback position.
Completing the quartette as
blocking back is Freddie Joplin,
a veteran of many grid wars and
five years in the Airforce. Twenty-
seven years old and still in his
plunging prime, Joplin saw service
on King Ed high school teams of
old, and was an essential part of
the 1939 and 1945 Hardy Cup
teams.
The line, designated traditionally as the front wall receiving al!
the bumps and none of the glory,
pivots around Bill Pierson who
edged out Bill Mcintosh for the

Rugger Enthusiasts To Go into Action
In Exhibition Contest Next Monday
By HAROLD MURPHY
RUGGER   OPENS   one   of   its
greatest seasons next week as this
years' Thunderbird aspirants am
finally selected. On Monday all
hopefuls will be engaged in thc
first big game of the season. When
that game is over the coaches wilt
get together and decide whether
or not Joe Doakes will play for
Varsity, UBC, or will be sent to
the  minors.
Most promising students from
last year include, Harvey Allen,
Hart Crosby, Barrie Morris and
Geoff Carey in the forward line,
and well known Bud Spiers, Andy
Johnston and flashy wing Ray
Grant will be figuring in the
back field. The fullback department is well taken care of by
two seniors H. Whotherspoon ai/id
Hill  Dunbar.
SCRUM  COMPETITION /
The competition for .scrum half
i.« particularly intense. Veteran
player Johnny Wheeler will )ha«-e
to keep moving to keep oyu of
the mud a.s both Pete'Hohsoft and
Bud Lott are trying for a (serum
half berth. Hobson. who Was been
out of the army for onjy a few
months appears to know ibis game
<
very well, but, is perhaps a little
oi. the light side. Lott is one of
the outstanding newer mers. He
played with Victoria Reps before-
coming here.
Another newcomer, George Bid-
die, who came from the Melora-
mas, will be giving veteran player
Eud Spiers plenty of competition
lor the five-eight position.
/Other outstanding newcomers
Include Scotty Kerr, and Russ
. Latham, both former Victoria
Reps, and apparently good men
by record.
The practice game on Monday
will start at 3:30. The "Probable"
line up for Varsity will be as
follows:
forwards will be Allen, Kerr.
Morris, G. Curby, B. Curby, D.
Giant, H. Crosby, G. Carey, while
the backs will include Lott, Spiers.
Johnston. Lath.mi, R. Grant and
Mckce.
"Possible" forwards include
Moon, Bradie. Burney. Kabush.
L Stone. J. Stone, Cannon and
Edmonds.
"Possible    backs"    include    Hobson.   Willianms,   McKeachie,   Morrison.  Glover, Vernon, and several
unknown;.
"Probable"     fullback     will     be
Dunbar, with Whotherspoon on
the possible list.
Manager Morris Physick has
asked the following players and ex-
pk.yers to turn out on Monday;
Scott. Carey, Biddle, Wheeler,
Knatt, Schinbine, Hicks, Lockhart,
and Lindsay. This will be the last
chance for any others who are interested in playing senior this
year.
First big game will be on
Thanksgiving Day at Brockton
Bowl.
Those not selected on Monday-
will be on deck Tuesday the 8th,
together with all Frosh and newcomers interested in second division   rugby.
INTERAMURAL NOTICE
THERE WILL BE n meeting of
the intramural committee on Mon-
<lay, October 7, In Hut G3.
This meeting Is very Important as
the playing schedule has been tentatively set to commence at the
end of next week.
Representatives from all frats,
fatuities, and other intramural
groups are asked to attend, to map
out thc program for the full session.
WILD BEARCAT—The rather largish gentleman pictured above is one Paul Cookingham, the right guard of the
visiting Willamette squad. Paul at 25 years of age packs 201
pounds into a 5' 9" stature. The might of Mr. Cookingham
and his confederates may easily prove annoying to the Blue
and Gold this afternoon.
