UBC Prof Explains
Truth Of Nahanni
By CHARLES MARSHALL
Contrary to popular opinion, the supposedly unexplored
and uncharted Nahanni Valley was for many years one of the
best known pieces of land in the whole of the North West
Territory, Dr. J. Lewis Robinson, Associate Professor of Geology
and Geography, said in an interview last Thursday.
To prove his point Dr. Robinson $>
pointed to 1933 copies of Canadian
Geographic Magazine, on the shelves
of his office, which carry detailed
descriptions of the "unknown" valley
along with maps and photographs.
25 YEARS AGO
As early as 1921 aerial photographs
were taken, of that section of tho
country, he said, and he showed an
article, which he himself had written
on the North West Territory, that
carried a picture of the Nahanni River
falls which are higher than those at
Niagara.
"This valley, he said, and the others
like it have a little more lush vegi-
tation in the summer time because
of the volcanic hot springs which are
often found there but in the winter
they are just as cold and ice-bound
as any other part of the country. It
would take a long stretch of the imagination to consider them the least
bit tropical."
WELL KNOWN
Having travelled extensively in that
region, Dr. Robinson is well acquainted with the Nahanni Indians, all 208
of them, and declares that although
they are .somewhat backward because
they live so far from civilization, they
are e; rtam. y mi tierce, much less
ho-.idhunters.
As for the gold, supposedly waitin"!

improbable.
Born in Windsor. Out., Dr. Robinson
took his early college training at the
University of Western Ontario and
then went to Clark University near
Boston whore he got his PhD. in
geography,

DR. J. L. ROBINSON
called back to Canada by the Dominion government to conduct a tour of
the Canadian North, with the idea of
gathering information for use in future settlement of the country. At the
same time he acted as Arctic Consultant for the RCAF, compiling valuable flata on seasons, frcezc-ups and
thaws.
As a result of his travels over a
period of three years, Dr. Robinson
has written more than a dozen pamphlets on the North country soon to
he published in book form.
Part, of his job as a government
geographer was to estimate the possible population of the area. His
figures show that the present population of 111,000 may increase to 3.">G,uu0
within the next 50 years,
For the Eastern Arctic with 150
v. h te settlers, he sees little hope for
a great increase in population unless
extensive mineral resources arc uncovered because the summer season
is    too   short    for   agriculture.

Marsh Concludes
Economics Talks
Sp.c.king Friday in Aggie 100 Dr.
Marsh concluded his talk en international economics. The talks were
under th^ auspices of the Socialist
Forum.
Dr. Marsh made three main points;
that UNRRA was the type of big
int:rn'.tional scheme which is needed today to bring the nations of the
world closer together. He gave credit to the late President Roosevelt's
"internationalism" for creating UN
RRA and enabling it to do much
of its work, Dr. Marsh then stated
dint countries in Southern '.md Eastern Europe were in dire rued of aid
i.nd that unless the newly-formed
international organizations do all they
can for these countries we will travel
further along the path of political
suspicion which we seem to be starting on, Finally Dr. Marsh said that
unless the USSR and the USA get
wholeheartedly behind these organizations they will certainly fail.

Committees
To Moot
Gym Plans
Two meetings concerning the University of British Columbia War
Memorial Gymnasium are slated for
today, AMS president Ted Kirkpatrick announced yesterday.
The planning sub-committee, headed
by Professor F. Lasserre, will meet
at 4:30 p.m. to make recommendations
to the trustees as to what steps must
be taken for the completion of architectural plans.
Members of the War Memorial Gym
Committee are to discuss questions of
future policy and the proposed delegation to Premier Hart in Brock Hall
at 7:30 p.m.,  said Kirkpatrick.
A model of the proposed gym will
soon be on display in the AMS office,
announced Kirkpatrick. The model
is now in the Electrical Engineering
Building and was on display at the
Science Ball.
It was built by architectural students under the direction of Rex Ray-
mer.
9Bird Supporters
Rally To Cause
Plans for the Victoria Invasion are
forging ahead under direction of the
Mamooks. A large number of Thunderbird supporters, cheerleaders and
eight majorettes will accompany the
McKechnie cup rugby team to the
capital for the game against the
Crimson Tide on March 8.
Although the Mamooks were unable to charter a boat for the trip,
numerous students will travel across
to the Island on regular steamers and
planes. This invasion is expected by
those making the trip to be the biggest since 1938.
One stalwart anticipating an easy
victory for the Blue and Gold squad
boasted, "We will bring back the
Macdonald Park goal-posts."
In 1938, the goal-posts from Macdonald Park were erected in the
Quad   by   victorious   students.

University of .San Carlos Summit-
School.   Guatemala.   Cmtral   America,
University equivalents of four of Canada's major political
parties met in a caucus yesterday in anticipation of the forthcoming Mock Parliament elections to be held Thursday at
12:30 p.m. in Brock Hall.
The parties—Liberal, Progressive-Conservative, LPP, and
CCF—will contest 48 seats of the parliament, scheduled for
March 5.
RUMORS <$>-
Campaigns will deal with everything from the Indian question to low
cost housing according to rumors
emanating from the pre-election caucuses.
The CCF party by Cliff Greer will
probably call for a housing scheme,
a health and welfare Act, a labor code
and a program of education grants.
Their long range program, it is said,
will be based on the Regina Manifesto
of 1933 which calls for a "planned
and socialized economy in which our
natural resources and the principal
means of production are owned, controlled and operated by the people".
INFORMED SOURCES
Informed sources say that the LPP I
headed by Gordon Martin will ask
the electorate to support a program
of world disarmament and control of
atomic energy, and a Domestic policy
of low cost housing, social security,
and a higher old age pension. A likely
slogan for the party is "Peace, Progress and Socialism".
Sources close to the Liberal party
state that Liberal policy will be chiefly
concerned with freight rates, Indian
affairs, National health and welfare,
immigration and labor. Party leadership will be in the hands of Bob
Dodd, when the politicians go to the
people.
John Cowan will lead the Progressive Conservative party when it
strives to attain a majority in Thursday's elections. Main planks of the
P. C. platform include maintenance
of world peace and a domestic policy
of increased immigration and population. To carry out these policies
they intend to support United Nations,
advocate arms reduction and campaign for the extension of the franchise
it is said.
5000 To Go For
Chest X-ray Unit
Willi less than one week remaining
before the X-ray clinic will leave
the university nearly one half of the
people at UBC still have not had
their yearly X-ray taken, according
to drive officials.
The X-ray is compulsory for all
first and second year students as a
required part of their medical examination, Health Service officials
point out.
They   were   concerned   about   the
fact that so many students, staff and
faculty members are neglecting this
convenient opportunity to be X-rayed.
The fact was emphasized that with
the new type of equipment being used
this year no undressing is required
The actual X-ray takes less than one
minute.
As there are nearly 5000 people to
be X-rayed during the remainder of
this week Health Service officials advised that appointments be made as
soon as possible at the Health Service
hut behind the auditorium.
JACQUIE CROSS
Assets: Green Eyes
VOC Supports
Cross As Queen
By BOB CHURCH
Exponents of the Blue and Gold are
out to ensure the election of their
candidate for the crown of the International Ski Meet, and viewed from
any angle, their confidence in Miss
Jacquiline Cross seems definitely not
misplaced.
Jacquie is one of six competing for
the title vacated by retiring Queen
Jean Reid of the Tyee Ski Club. A
5' 8'/4" green-eyed brunette, Jacquie
is an enthusiastic skier and in the
absence of snow, enjoys riding at the
Flying U.
A massive campaign is planned by
the Varsity Outdoor Club and Jokers
are warned that anything can happen.
From behind the curtain of secrecy
come rumors of snake parades, Joker
Marathons, and other stunts scheduled for the remainder of the week.
For those who want to meet her
in person, her presence is assured at
the campus premiere of "Anne Bolyn,
tshe lost *er 'ead over sharp young
blade), a disgrace in one act, adapted
by Pat Fowler." This stupendous event
is scheduled for the auditorium at
12:30 Thursday.
For those who want to vote for
her, (this is in strictest confidence),
ten votes may be obtained for a dime
from any VOC member, and proceeds
are earmarked for the Canadian
Olympic Ski Fund, which plans to
send a team to the Switzerland games
in 1948.
Comm Nominations
Due Tomorrow
The Commerce Undergraduate Society has decided to put forward
their executive nomination deadline
to February 26 in order to ensure a
fuller and more representative slate.
These nominations, which were to
have been in today, are for president,
vice-president, secretary, treasurer,
and executive member.
Further information concerning
nominations and voting procedure will
be printed in Thursday's Ubyssey.

TAKE THIS TO HART
There has seldom been a more worthwhile
campaign than the one being waged now by
the Pre-Medical Undergraduate Society and
the Canadian Legion to have a medical faculty
established on the campus this year.
Everyone seems to be agreed that it is desirable for British Columbia to train its own
doctors, that there is a shortage of doctors in
the province, that there is a shortage of hospital
accommodation, and that great consideration
should be given to the hundreds of students,
especially the veterans, who are preparing
themselves to take medical courses in the hop^
that some school will soon open its doors to
them.
All those things being accepted, then can
it not be said that it would be ridiculous if
the government and  the  university  administration could not get together in some way
to effect a beginning on a first class medical
faculty to be established on the UBC campus.
If there is not a firm resolve to start a first-
rate school, then it would be better to forget
the whole issue, because any make-shift arrangement would only have to be corrected
in future years at great cost. And those who
would establish the faculty on the university
site have almost as strong a case  in that
regard.
The other proposed site most often mentioned is that of the Vancouver General
Hospital, even though medical education experts called in to review the situation have
already pointed out that that hospital is already
inadequate for existing purposes, let alone
adding a medical school, and that it is too
The Mummery
large for efficiency. Those in opposition to the
General site point out with substantial justification that the ideal plan is to establish the
medical school at UBC in co-operation with
the other faculties, on a site where there is
sufficient and highly desirable space for the
construction of combined teaching, research,
and hospital accomodation as a health centre
for the people of all the province.
The experts who made the survey last fall,
including some of the foremost authorities on
medical education alive today, estimated that
the minimum capital expenditure for a first
class faculty of medicine would be two million
dollars for the school itself and four million
for a teaching hospital. Their estimate of
annual operating expenditure was set at x four
hundreds thousand dollars, exclusive of any
possible deficit for the hospital. Despite that,
the government of this province has not seen
fit to increase its orginal offer to the university
of one and half millions for capital expenditure
and one hundred thousand for operating
expenses.
In the face of this situation, the Pre-
Medical Undergraduate Society has made the
reasonable plea that although the medical
school should be started under those terms
there should be a commitment from the government to pledge the additional necessary
money to be expended over a period of years
jntil the desired facilities are provided.
The Ubyssey supports this plea and urges
the government and university administration
to get the medical faculty established this
year.

Sprawled on the sunlit grass in front of the
Library, Homer Quincey was trying to catch
up on his outside reading, delayed by several
months of rain and snow. But as the warm
sun sunt the sap roaring through his trunk
he found his eyes straying from the text and
closing 'like calipers on the figure of a coed
lying on her stomach nearby. Engrossed in.
tearing up grass, the coed was idly waving
her legs in the air, a languid semaphore thai
to Homer signaled miles of clear track. He
shaded his eyes with cne hand and peered at
her through a crevice between the second and
third fingers, his clenched teeth producing a
fine spray that settled like dew on his seven-
day loan.
For weeks Homer had coveted this Pamela
Upshot, one of the runners-up in the Beauty
Queen Contest. Pamela's sorority agreed that
Pamela would have, won the contest if she had
shown a little more poise (she gamboled past
the judges on all fours, winking outrageously);
but Homer, realizing that one man's poise is
another man's  meat,  saw her  as  perfection.
And, topping off a triumphant academic year,
Pamela had been mentioned in dispatches by
Monsignor  Chaloner for    her   impersonation
of an overexposed Balinese celebrating Shrove
Tuesday on a Thursday and Friday in January.
ONE BASE HIT
Homer had eagerly awaited a chance to carry
Pamela's books for her, but had been thwarted
by the fact that she never carried a book.
Now, however, he finally saw an opening.
Closing his text he snaked. across the grass
until he lay beside her. She looked up at him
through octagonal glasses, her hot black eyes
burning like wet anthracite.
"Could I borrow some ink?" he asked, prying his gaze away from the booming graph
of her sweater.
"Of course," said Pamela, and pressed the
nib of her Parker 51 into his Kresge so provocatively that his eyeballs steamed over and
had to be wiped. "I hope you don't mind orange
ink."
"Mighty pretty," mumbled Homer, fumbling
the cap on his pen. "Say, er, I been watching
you."
"Really?" Pamela purred. "Notice anything?''
"Yeah." Homer plucked up a passing earthworm and nervously tore it into four equal
ji.nie, "You got mighty line leeth. '
Willi .1. slow, sinuous movement, Pamela
coiled, to strike.
"1 hope you won't take a dim view of me
talkin  out like this," Homer went on gruffly, j
"Er, a dim view, that's Air Force for a poor \
opinion."
"Really?" said Pamela, who had been out
with enough airmen to compile and publish
a thesaurus of RCAF slang, which had sold
several thousand copies, been banned in Canada, and was being made into a movie starring
Jane Russell.
"I'd like to be your feller," Homer muttered, picking furiously at a wart on his thumb,
"Take you to a dance, maybe,"
"You mean," crooned Pamela, "You'd like
to give me your pin?"
"If I do, my pants'll fall down," said Homer.
Pamela laughed, a merry sound, like coal
falling into a bucket.
"You fraternity boys are so impetuous,"
she said.
"Fraternity boys?" Homer's querry quavered.
"Of course. You're a Fiji, aren't you?"
"No, ma^am, I'm an Aggie", said Homer.
UPSHOT OF THE AFFAIR
Horror climbed into Pamela Upshot's face.
"But somebody told me . . . What have I
done?" she gasped, starting at her Parker 51.
"I'm specializin' in fertilizer. Expect to take
Honours in Chicken Dung. Since I .... "
But Pamela now jumped to her feet and,
with a quick glance around to see if she had
been seen, fled across the lawn into the basement of the Library.
For a moment Homer sucked his lower lip
thoughtfully, then told himself, "Guess she ain't
been broke yet," and turned to focus on a
blonde nearby who looked as though she might
have been.

in by the individual child requires of
him varying combinations of tact,
cooperation, skill, patience, and that
all important 'spirit'. Whether it is a
case of a tetherball, yo-yo, or boxing
tournament where the individual may
distinguish himself, or an old clothes,
or potato race where the team and
its pride is at stake, that wonderful
sense of the extreme importance of
the outcome to each individual is
evident. It makes one wonder if it
would be so very difficult after all
for all the nations of the world to
concern themselves intimately with
what is happening to any one of
their groups no matter how small a
minority.
Children are very enthusiastic over
little things;they will go all the way
Ifor their team. The same boys who
'smoke at ten, pilfer at twelve, and are
labelled juvenile delinquents at fifteen, have the strictest sense of sportsmanship involving disgust at cheating,
injustice or discrimination of any kind,
when it comes to an inter-playground
volleyball game. Not only do our supervised playgrounds promote group
expression, but also they encourage
individual expression. Creative ability in fields not recognized as being
very important by the regular school
curriculum is discovered early in a
child's life through such activities as
the Soap Box Derby, Sandbox project
and Festival.
Voluntary confidence in, and affection and respect for, the leader are
the most useful forms of discipline-
children do not sit in rows of seats
before her, they cluster around in
mobs. A child's mind is unhampered
by the memorizing of multiplication

child i.s in his late teens he has allowed himself to be overcome by
self criticism and convention - to the
total ruination of his work. He drops
into banal attempts at exact representation, usually with the encouragement of parents and teachers, and
loses not only tho ability to create
artistic work, but even his sensitivity
to  art products.
It is only in very recent years
that art teachers are learning to relegate themselves to the function of
providers of materials, and to leave
guidance to the innate sensibility of
tho young artists. At its best, teaching goes no farther than to introduce
ink bottle on a piece of smudgy drawing paper.
As a  matter  of  fact,  this child art
it, great stuff - certainly, it lacks the
intensity of emotional content that
makes great art - but it has a spontaneity of symbolization and an ease
of aesthetic form - something of the
fi ee quality of surrealism, and for
tee .-■ ,,mo rea.son - that promises great

A further aid to the preservation
of this artistic sense in the growin
child would bo an improvement in
the school environment - ugly buildings and shabby classrooms form the
worst possible surroundings for the
sensitive child -- end most children
are unbelievably sensitive; it is only
the adults who become dull and
obtuse. If the teacher may be included in the environment, it is relevant to suggest that higher pay,
shorter hours, and smaller classes for
instructors form an important part of
any improvement scheme. The reward for such expenditure would
come in a new generation capable of
banishing the ghastly ugliness that
surrounds every phase of present day
life.

FREEDOM, It     is     possible
FREEDOM that     the     intro
duction of this
policy of greater
freedom for the pupil - the right
and need to think for himself - into
all other fields of education might
be quite as rewarding as it has been
in the art class. The emphasis has
been far too much on the authority
of the teacher - on the moulding of
■the child to a prescribed formula -
rather than upon the encouragement
of the pupil to develop his own personality from within - with the teacher
in the role of a guide and assistant.
WHY A     pronounced
CULTURE? emphasis has been
placed on the
importance of an
artistic and cultural content in education - and it is possible that the
need for all this impractical training
might be questioned. Certainly only
the smallest numbers will be able to
make a living from their artistic
abilities - for the remainder culture
remains  tho  purest  luxury.
There is just one point - having

and a .satisfactory surplus over and
above that - and the rest of his life
to put in.
From there on he has the choice
of   a   life   devoted   to   making   more
This early training whereby th:
child is forced to a passive acceptance
of the teacher's word is the worst
possible preparation for citizens of a
democracy - if the governors are to
be looked on by the people as little
fathers, to be obeyed to the grave,
then such an educational system is
the perfect answer - but if the aim
is toward any true form of democracy, the child must learn early to
think for himself. And only the
teacher is in the position to bring
about in the students this independent
self development.

money - making money because there
isn't a damned thing else to do - or
of turning his mind to the infinitely
more satisfying richness of art and
literature and music. Luxury of this
kind is life, it is one of the things
that make the whole fight worth
while.
Without a solid foundation to be
gained from a culHiral content in
life, existence must be a series of
haps through an increasingly boring
.sequence of emotional shocks. If
there is any one more to be pitied
than the drug addict who cannot
leave his dope, it i.s the businessman
who dare not stop work - bound on,
a wheel of endless routine by the
fear of his own sterility.

Leering triumphantly over their "best" display are the Electrical engineers (class of '47),
judged outstanding among table exhibits at the Engineers' "Iron Ring Circus" at the Commodore, February 20. Their working model of the B.C.E.R. Bridge River power project
brought them the challenge cup from last year's winner, a nylon factory built by the Chemical engineering class. Six faculty judges felt all the displays were "very good", finally awarded second prize to the Chemical engineers synthetic rubber plant. Third place was taken by
members of the Dawson Club for their original exhibit, a life-like, smoke-spouting volcano.
Other displays included two perpetual motion machines, and an authentic model of the

Letters To The Editor
Marsh Replies
Dear Sirs:—
May I make two very brief comments on Mr. J. V. MacDonald's statements to the UBC Pharmacy Society
as reported in the newspapers on
Thursday.
(1) Mr. MacDonald alleges that
health insurance is "Russian", "Bolshevistic", etc—whatever these terms
mean. If any philosophy has inspired the organization of health insurance,, it is essentially liberal, and
democratic, as the best developed
example — the British — abundantly
shows..
Incidentally, Mr. MacDonald does
not seem to be aware that state
medicine—which, properly defined,
means a system under which most
doctors, (like teachers in Canada today) are employed directly by the
state—is not advocated in my Report.
(2) Does Mr. MacDonald believe
that only doctors should frame
health insurance legislation? (It is
not at all clear what he does mean).
Medical services, and of course
.sjeknes,-;. 'Usability and disease, involve public end private expenditure, a- -.vol: as various other aspects
of national welfare. It i.s usually
conceded that 'economists have some
competence in these matters. Even
so, these who are interested in
he.ilh insurance 'including myself)
usually   consult   with   doctors,   too.
The ILO, I may add, has consulted
the views of the medical profession
on countless occasions. Reference
to the London. School of Economics
as if it inculcated a single political
or economic doctrine i.s completely
inaccurate, and in any case particularly irrelevant on this subject. As
for Mr. MacDonald's references to
myself, I leave it to his audience
to decide whether they strengthen
his argument.
Yours  truly,
Leonard C. Marsh

Thank you for your splendid editorial, "The Big Sleep" in Tuesday'u

them, while the rest of us will stay

Dear Sir:
Ah, now proud pubsters all, where
is your sense of fair play filed? Readme; your tri-weeldy efforts is slightly
.'eniiniseeiit of watching a rousing
match of Tiddlerty winks between the
Socialist;,, with the odd Communist

iii!.; t dents, has been rumored as a
possible candidate for Joe Stalin's
next red-osear award.) and the' "old
line  parties."    Come  now ye  honor
able editors, let us try and refrain
from clapping a meaty palm over
the mouth of the Tiddledywink receptor each time a socialist or communist (Note to Ed, "You may delete the word communist here, or at
any rate it may be misspelled or by
some other measure blurred) goes to
flip his Wink, (or is it Tiddlee, now
there is a question.)
Mr. Editor the way in which you
reprimanded all those nasty people
who sent letters of 150 words or
over, re the reporting of Mr. Robeson's speech, and you only printed
three of them and with no attempt
nl an explanation of the reasons for
fuch obviously bad reporting. All
this sniffs to me of a slightly loaded
set of Tiddledees (or Winks depending upon which part of the country
one  hails  from).
Yours for a fair and factual
Ubyssey. D.  FARR.

More Orchids
Dear  Sir:
V/c would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Dyer for the
attention he gave in his column on
the Sports Page a week ago last
Thursday to Camping' in general,
Camp Elphinstone in particular. As
you are no doubt aware, the need
for leadership is very great at the
present time in ALL camps in and
near Vancouver.
Miss Smith in the Reference Department of the Library has made
available one of the display cases
in the entrance of the library for
the purpose of calling the attention
ol the students to the need for counsellors. And let us mention in addition that the satisfaction one receives
in return for his efforts in leadership
are great, for he (or she) will have
helped at least a few more of" the
ycung citizens to become better
Canadians.
Bill Bentley, Len Cuthill, Dave Dale.
Significant Attitude
Dear Sir:
The failure of the ISS Drive on
the Campus reflects a significant attitude of mind among the student
body. For here has been demonstrated in the well-understood language of dollars and cents the gap
that separates the culture of North
America and that of Asia and Europe. It would be impossible to explain to a student from either of
these continents the contrast between
the paucity of the contributions and
the ostentatious displays of extravagance to be seen at any University
social function. In a country so com.
paratively wealthy as Canada the
inability of the university students
to see beyond the limits of pecuniary
self-interest in the face of human
suffering and need reflects upon the
country as a whole. For if the supposedly enlightened and educated
section of the community have so
little in common with their Asian
and European counterparts, little hope
can be held out for any measure of
understanding between less - privileged peoples, little hope indeed fenny concept of One World. The figures released in Saturday's Ubyssey
must stand to the shame of the University. D.  K.  McADAM.

LIMITED Birdmen Surprise Portland

By LAURIE DYER
"Now ain't they the darndest hot and cold team that you ever

If you took a furtive peek at the

referees have had to carry a thermometer instead of whistles, have

wins and losses which bears more
than a coincidental similarity to those
of  Linfield   and   College   of   Puget
Sound.
HAVE EIGHT WINS
All three teams have a total of eight
wins to show for their season's efforts. And all three teams have a
black - mark on four losses in the
debit side of their books.
Thus it is that the College of Idaho
with as many wins, but only two
losses, sits impressively on the top
of the heap, while UBC, Linfield and
CPS are locked in a three-way clinch
for second place.
CPS Loggers earned their second
slot position by downing the impotent Pacific Badgers, and the Linfield quintet performed a similar
operation on the league-leading Po-
tatomen, this last weekend. ,
So once again the 'Birdmen will
have to duel against a team that has
tied them up, for the Loggers are
due here for the season's windup
matches next Friday and Saturday
nights. And a shot or two by the
'Birds—and in the right direction-
could make hoop history in the Pacific
Northwest.
were anything but hot, but although
the 'Birds looked good Friday night
when they dropped a 49-41 decision
to the Pilots, hundreds of hoopla
fans will tell you that they saw the
Workers of Oz play ball like they
haven't played all year when they
defeated the Portland lads in the
Saturday  fracas.
And the final 56-49 score was just
about indicative of the way the game
went. The Pilots opened the scoring
Saturday night but the lead see-sawed
back and forth until the score read
11-all. That proved to be the "go"
sign as far as the 'Birdmen were concerned.
Playing a very fast brand of ball that
featured close checking, beautiful ball
handling, short neat passes, and some
sweet shooting, the 'Birds worked the
ball around and took advantage of
every break. They completely befuddled the highly touted Portland
squad for nearly fifteen minutes after
which the whiz-kids left the floor
clutching a 30-15 bulge.
PORTLAND RETURNS
Portland came back with a vengeance in the second half and although
Harry Kermode opened the scoring,
Portland was the team from there
on for a full eleven minutes before
the 'Birds could get back on the bit.
With nine minutes left, the Pilots had
closed the 'Birds' margin to a mere
two points as the score read 35-33.
Settling down again, Kermode and
Forsythe sank gift shots and then Nev
Munro came through with a honey.
From then on, it was tit for tat with
the 'Birds getting a little the better
of the bargain as they continued their
smooth play of the first half.
The game ended at 56-49 with both
teams still going hard. This first win
over the Portland quintet in three
starts this year found the 'Birds at
their best. Harry Kermode was high
for the local squad notching 13 markers for his night's efforts. For the
visitors, a long lanky hoopster by the
name of Ford came through with a
well earned 16 points.
SCOTT LOOKS GOOD
Although he only got eight points,
Marv Scott, playing guard for the
visitors, turned in a performance that
marked him as one of the smartest
guards local fans have seen for a
while. He also showed some ability
at discussing the odd decision of the
gentlemen with the whistles.
Of the second string 'Birdmen, Dave
Campbell looked pretty fair out there
as  he  hustled  continually.
In the Friday night fracas, the 'Birds
threw up a zone defence that very
nearly worked perfectly against the
Portland team.
The game was fairly close in the
first half as the 'Birds left the floor
at the breather under a 23-19 margin.
AfCer the half, the Portland crew
started working and built up a lead
that kept them safe for the night.
Weber and Haas with 11 and 9 were
high for the Students while Bob
Beverick collected 16 and Jack Ford
15 for the visitors.

Robinson Skis
In Eastern Meet
By JACK LEGGATT
Judging from Eastern Reports,
UBC's Garvin Robinson is not doing
any too well on the Laurentian ski
slopes, but when the combined results are tabulated, it is hoped he
will have placed in the running.
On Mt. St. Anns, where the Dominions were held last Thursday to
Sunday, the courses and snow conditions are entirely different from
Coast skiing and, owing to the fact
that Gar arrived at the last minute
for the downhill, tit is understood
why he failed to place among the
winners.
Further details of his activities
are lacking from the East but it is
hoped the results will be available
this week.
Dozens of entries have been flooding into the Vancouver Sun's office
from UBC for ths annual international ski tournament which will be held
on Grouse Mountain this Sunday
starting at 11 a.m.
This tournament, which wil) see
the entire proceeds being donated
to the Olympic Ski Fund, will feature a giant slalom race, the course
of which is being set by UBC coach
Peter Vajda, and a jumping tournament,
An added interest for the UBC ski
team will be a seven man aggregation from the Royal Roads Navy
Academy, Victoria, who plan to enter
both events.
Following this week's tourney, on
March 16th when the intramural
tournament gets under way, th;
same seven men will enter a team
against the UBC ski team who are
unable to enter the intramural event.

Played on a soggy field, the game
was close throughout the first half,
as both Victoria and'Birds threatened
to score. Nesbit finally opened the
scoring with a 30 yard penalty kick,
making the score 3-0. MacDonald with
whom Coach Roy Haines had bolstered
his forward line, was the only man to
break over the line, as he made the
tally 6-0 at the half.
NESBIT STARS
The burning pace set by the Bird
ruggermen began to tell on the Victorians in the second half and the
Blue and Gold threatened continuously.   Nesbit received the ball half way

Staged Thursday
Varsity's feminine track enthusiasts have • quickened their preparations for the Annual Indoor Track
Meet which is slated to be staged in
the Gym from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. on
Thursday,   February   27,
The defending champions, Arts 3,
are promised some keen competition
this year, and although they rate as
favorites to retain the silverware,
anything  can  happen.
The girls are promised relay races,
broad, standing, and high jumps, rope
climbing, darts, bowling, table tennis and basketball frceshot.
Although the stress has been placed
on the intramural aspect of the meet
and team points, individual entries
tne being given free scope, and
entries  arc  encouraged.
Preceding the evening's activities
will be the finals in the volleyball and
hoop setups.
In the volleyball bracket, the freshens meet the powerful Arts 3 club
who are currently holding the title
mug, while the basketball epic will
sec the Home Economics quintette
match casaba wares with another
squad from Arts 3. In the last contest these two hoop squads staged,
a rugged tie ensued, and so, in the
words of the proverb, anything can
happen.
There will be a feminine delegation in the Joker Roller Skating
Marathon,
ary bouts will be run off in order to
give the fight promoters one whole
week to clear up any details and make
arrangements for the final bouts.
Promoter Pomfret will produce a ring,
sufficient chairs to fill the remaining
floor space in the gym and the necessary fighters to amuse the local fist-
cuff and groan fans.
OFFICIALS NAMED
Meanwhile Bob Osborne's office has
announced the officials for the tournament, all prominent in Vancouver
athletic circles. Hec MacDonald and
Dave Brown will act as referees for
the bouts, while judges will be Blackie
Bengert, Bill Oates and George
McLaughlin. The tournament moguls
have asked Ralph McKenzie, Harry
Miller, and Dick Murray to officiate
as time-keepers.
Jimmy Owen, Jim Gove, and, Ab
Gordon have been delegated to act
as- boxing referees for the preliminary
boxing bouts, Wally Walling and Ian
Sprinkling will watch the wrestlers.
POSTED DAILY
Lists of contestants in the'prelim-
ary bouts will be posted every day
this week on the gym and stadium
notice boards. There are still nine
wrestlers and boxers who want to
enter the intramural tournament but
have not had a medical examination.
Jack Pomfret still insists, "No medical, no fight".
The scale of points and how they
will be entered in intramural records
will be worked out by the end of the
week. Boxers may either represent
a campus organization entered in in-
ranuual competition or may fight independently.
Victoria Trip Off
For UBC Swimmers
Sad news has come to the members of the Varsity Swimming Club
as it was announced yesterday that
the team would not be making the
trip to Victoria on March 7 when
other Varsity teams invade the Island  Capital.
The news came from Archie Mc-
Kinnon, coach of the Victoria YMCA,
that they found it necessary to call
the meet off. However there will
still be plenty of men to represent
the University when tha teams make
the trip.
Although there won't be any hoop
teams going over, two rugger teams
will be away, one to play in the
McKechnie tilt, and another second
division team which will probably
meet Vic College.
SOCCER TOO
The Varsity soccer team will go
along to meet the Victoria Wests
who are at present leading the
Senior League. That contest will take
place at Athletic Park. There is also
a possibiliy that the UBC team may
also go.
The men's grass hockey team will
also be following the 'Birds to Victoria to meet a Vic team in another
exhibition match.
Just to make the whole matter a
sure-fire success, the Varsity majorettes will be very much in evidence.
Alhough it may not be a full scale
invasion, Victoria residents will undoubtedly know that UBC is in town.
through the stanza and dropped a
neat field goal over the posts to bring
the score up to a nice looking 10 on
the scoreboard.
Scrum half John Wheeler set up the
next scoring play as he flipped the
leather to N:sbit who in turn, let
MacDonald pack the ball over the
line.
Victoria lost their star fullback late
in the second half when veteran player
Tom McKeachie was taken off with
a bioken collar bone. Speedy wing-
man of the Birds, Ray Grant, was
taken off by Coach Haines to even
the sides.
Daryl Popham made the only score
for the visitors when he dropped a
penalty kick over the bar to make the
points 13-3.
MACDONALD SCORES
MacDonald soon put these points
into the background by crashing over
for another try, making the final
score 16-3.
Notable among the starry Birds,
who are hoping to travel to California
in two weeks are many names. Senior
man of the team George Biddle who
appeared slightly ragged in the opening half got full controll in the second
frame and treated the fans, who practically filled the grandstand, to several
spectacular bursts of speed.
Russ Latham threatened the thin
red line with several fast end runs.
Captain Barry Morris showed up well
in the scrum as did heavyman Scott
Kerr. Doug Reid was instrumental in
keeping the heat on the Islanders until late in the game when he was
shaken up and knocked into touch.
A light rain which started early in
the afternoon curtailed half time ceremonies but many fans heard the game
broadcast over the CBC.
A celebration banquet was held
after the game and the party later
continued at a dance on the north
shore.
Sport moguls are expecting another
victory when Birds invade Brockton
Point Oval on Saturday for the fourth
game of the McKechnie series.
The fifth and last game for the
Birds will be played in Victoria,
March 8, and will be the feature attraction of the invasion of UBC teams
that is currently being planned.
