Jokers Plan Kiddie Bawl
At Commodore Next Month
Introducing what they hope will become an annual event
on the university's social calendar, the UBC Jokers' club will
hold a "Kiddie Bawl" at the Commodore cabaret on Tuesday,
March 4, according to an announcement by Perth Webster,
vice-president of the Jokers' club.
"A poor man's masquerade" is the * ■ :	
way Webster described what he promises will be an event to rival the Fall
Ball and the Mardi Gras,
Kiddie idea was chosen by the
Jokers from many suggested themes
for a masquerade party because tho
club members feel that this type of
costume would be the easiest and
most inexpensive type to wear.

dressed male "kiddie" should wear

Union Branch
An effort is currently being mad:
by a number of students to form a
University Branch of the Canadian
Civil Liberties Union.
The society's object will be to
maintain the traditional democratic
rights of freedom in all its aspects
and to take all legitimate action in
the furtherance of this object.
Warnings have been issued by the
student organizers that the society
is non-political and will not tolerate1
any group seeking cotnrol of the ;
society "such as has been done in i
various  othe  rcampus  groups."
The campus branch of the society
is taking its cue as to its form oi
organization from the downtown
branch of the Civil Liberties Union.
Among the mora prominent members
ot that branch are Dr. G. G. Sed-
gewick, Professor Hunter Lewis and
Dr. W. D. MacDonald.
A meeting wdl be held tomorrow-
noon in Arts 104 to elect an executive and also to discuss what measures such a group on the campus will
take in aiding the advancement of
measures for the defence and enlargement of civil liberties in Canada

One unique feature introduced especially for the males attending the
affair will be a pant-checking service,
designed to make the wearing of short
trousers more practical for the male
en route to the dance. The male guest
will then be able to wear his long
pants over bis costume and remove
them when he arrives at the Commodore,
How this process of pant-checking
can be carried out with dignity will
bo demonstrated by th? Jokers at a
pep meet the week before the dance.
Appropriate costumes for the "little
girls" attending the gala party include
short "girlie" dresses, pig-tails and
hair ribbons.
Dave King of the Joker alumni enthused over the costume idea with
the comment that "even my breath
will bo coming in short pants."
Entertainment for the Bawl, which
the Jokers claim is "definitely along
cultural lilies" will include a singing
chorus "direct from the Metropolitan and the Bowery" under the direction of Hugh "Twinkle Toes" MacDonald and Arnold Jones.

vice-president Webster, will be the
"greatest kiddie event since the

All those even remotely associated with the Pub arc cordially
commanded to attend.
Students whose minds are incubating contributions of prose, verse
or cartoons for the large spring issue
of the UBC Thunderbird should offer
the hatched offspring to the magazine's editors before February 17.
Reaffirming this deadline Friday,
Editor Alan Dawe said the campus
quarterly's demand for interesting
material is greater than ever, with
the coming issue planned to • be the
largest yet produced.
Auieady the Thunderbird staff has
a number of short stories, articles
and poems to»choose from, but before final selections are made it wants
to see  everything available,
Stories and articles should be less
than 2,000 words, and a 1,000-word
length is preferable. Brevity in verse
contributions is desirable also. Cartoons — not necessarily on the campus scene—must be funny, whether
in a subtle or obvious way.
Contributions should be left in the
Thunderbird office, near the Pub
in the north basement of Brock Hall.
The Spring Thunderbird, scheduled
to be 36 pages instead of the usual
24, will go on sale March 17.

STAFF THIS ISSUE: Senior Editor; Don Ferguson, Associate Editor; Val Sears
In recent weeks, several students have been
deprived of their privileges in the Alma Mater
Society under the terms of an AMS regulation
in which even the prosecutors have little faith
left. That regulation, Article XXIV of the
AMS Code, provides that: "No student is
allowed during the session to take part in
athletic competitions or games for any team
or organization other than a University team
without the consent, in writing, of the Men's
or Women's Athletic Directorates."
That article can be defended neither on moral
nor on practical grounds.
Inasmuch as it was originally designed to
improve UBC teams, its purpose is admirable,
but its method is not as righteous as its purpose.
It is true that other Canadian universities have
similar regulations, but in most cases they are
patterned after those in force at certain American colleges where athletic scholarships and
other abuses also exist and where conditions
are far different from those existing at UBC.
Practically, the regulation is false on two
counts. Firstly, in a university of eight or nine
thousand students where most of them live off
the campus, it is impossible to enforce the rule
effectively. Secondly, when H is enforced, the
offenders either defy the athletic authorities
and have to be punished or else they stop all
athletic activity.
The rule seldom operates for the betterment
of varsity teams. If a person hasn't got sufficient "school spirit" to play for UBC in the first
place, he isn't likely to play under force or to
be of much value if he does.
Morally, there are more serious objections,
for the rule calls for punishment of students
indulging in off-the-campus activity which is
quite within the laws of the land and may not
even be to the discredit of the university's name.
And if there is such a protective law for
athletics, why not a blanket regulation for all
activity of a type sponsored by the Alma Mater
Society? Why not improve the Players' Club
or Musical Society by forbidding students to
act or sing off the campus, or enact similar restrictions on other artistic endeavor? Why not
improve the Publications Board by preventing
students from working for downtown newspapers? Why not ask professors to confine
their extra-curricular activities to things that
will only strengthen their departments at UBC?
Even to suggest such things is to demonstrate how preposterous Article XXIV really
is and to point out how indefensible it is. A
more logical suggestion would be that the
athletic directors make their programs so appealing that no one would want to play for any
but a UBC team.
Those who would defend Article XXIV must
realize that the University of British Columbia
is a state-supported institution and the only
one of its kind in the province. Students do not
have an option of attending, within B.C., a
private university where they might be expected to subscribe to restrictive regulations
such as those in force at a private club.
There will be a chance to do something about
the Article at the General Meeting of the Alma
Mater Society next month if the Student Council declines to do anything about it beforehand.
The Mummery
A courier on a foam-flecked horse has ridden
up with the news that Friday is St. Valentine's
Day. After wiping the noble beast's saliva
from my worsted, I hastened to check the
flexibility of the flap of our letter-box, hone
the blade of the sturdy claymore that serves
me as letter-opener, and brace myself against
the imminent flood of Coutts' gushiest and
Last year, presumably because our undernourished postman was unable to bend back
the flap of the letter-box, no Valentines got
through to me. They just piled up in the Post
Office, I guess, slowly steaming off their own
stamps. By queer coincidence, I also failed to
receive any cards the year before that.
As a matter of fact, except for one card sent
to me in 1938 by my maiden aunt, (lovable old
sex fiend that she is), the last Valentine I received was a homemade job from a young woman in Grade 3B who sat in a remote part of
the classroom and wore extraordinary thick
glasses. I never received a Valentine from
any of the girls with normal vision. Dozens of
cards, each the product of a box of crayons,
flew around the class in an outburst of eroticism that consternated the teacher, but all I got
was this one bleeding heart from my myopic
admirer. Though it was unsigned I knew it
was from her because the yellow arrow intended to pierce the red heart was badly off-centre,
might even have been described as a near-miss.
was aching to know, Being naturally cagey
even before I heard about "Mom and Dad," I
refused to commit myself, merely leering an
intimation that I could be bought.
But now that I'm old enough to provide a
glib answer, nobody asks me to be their Valentine. Every year Cupid turns tip with an
empty quiver. I would like to believe that the
reason for this is that adults don't send each
other cards, but when I tried to get near the
Valentine counter in a department store last
week, something larger than sucklings elbowed
my giblets and swarmed across my metatarsals.
Intending to retaliate for a Christmas card
received from somebody I hadn't sent one to,
I started pawing through the treaclish selection
of cards.
I browsed past a number designed for Sister,
Brother, Mother, Uncle and Second Cousins.
Ignoring this remarkably incestuous species, I
plucked open a card which began, "I Send You
My Love, Darling . . . ." I hastily clapped it
shut, glancing around guiltily to see if I had
been observed reading it, and tried to stuff
it back into its slot, getting into a bit of a panic
when it refused to be stuffed, and finally jamming it home with an ugly ripping noise. I
looked up into the face of a tightlipped salesgirl.
"Would you care to take that card?" she
asked ominously.
I nodded dumbly, and she removed the battered billet doux, along with a quarter from my
sweaty palm. Taking my purchase, I skulked
to another part of the counter to find a nice,
friendly Valentine that would suggest remembrance without any particular loss of sleep.
Almost immediately I looked up to see the
* same salesgirl staring at me, and I reddened at
the implication that, while sending my quarter's
worth of Love to Darling, I was prepared to
two-time her in the clime section.
"You want another Valentine?" The querulous note in her voice slapped me across the
chops like a gauntlet.
"Yes. I'd like a card for an old friend."
"Something in pink lace, perhaps?"
"I couldn't say," I said.   "I never knew her
that well."
Her eyes tightened, strangling the laughter
in my throat.
"Maybe you'd like a funny card. Here's one
with Donald Duck, It says, 'Mighty sorry that
we parted, just when we were getting
started '"
"I can read," I mumbled, and stared morosely
at Donald Duck. Donald Duck wasn't what I
had in mind, What I had in mind was . . .
"Where can I get a box of crayons?" I asked
the salesgirl, and, without waiting for her to
recover from her fit, walked woodenly away.
Beauty On The Spot
the franchise and representation in
the legislature is one step in the
direction of making the government
realize   more   fully   its   responsibility
It has been maintained that in the Anglo-American countries, and there alone, a perfect measure of democracy exists.
Theoretically, this form of government is presumed to offer
equal rights and opportunities to all. However there appear to
be major discrepancies between the theory and actual practice.
The last war was fought against the upholders of the principles
of Nazism and Fascism, both of which systems have as part of
their basis the persecution of racial minorities, which become
scapegoats to divert attention from the more unsatisfactory
aspects of the system.
In the United States and Canada*
wo also have our racial minorities,
some of whom, contrary to popular
belief, are also persecuted. The lot
of the American Negro during the
last fifty years has been one of constant repression and the amount of
racial prejudice existing in some
parts of the southern states is a flat
contradiction of democratic principles.
In Canada the negro is an insignificant portion of the population but
this is not true in the case of the
country's original inhabitants, the
North American Indians. .Once a
physically splendid race, they were
tree to roam over the whole country,
but now, a conquered people, they
are   confined   to   small   reservations.
Here, living in squalid shacks and
lacking proper medical care, they are
rapidly being destroyed by such diseases as tuberculosis. These conditions among the Indians are allowed
to persist not so much through an
active desire to persecute them as
through neglect on the part of authorities and a lack of awareness on
the part of most citizens.
The current demand being made by
the Native  Brotherhood  of B.C. for

to these people. Until the Indian has
the same rights and privileges, as well
as the responsibilities, of any other
Canadian citizen, we cannot call ourselves truly democratic.
Letters To The Editor
Spoiled Ballots
Dear Sir,
In tho elections for president for
AIMS just held, there was an unwitting
di.'.play of the bright and not so
bright f Indents in the various faculties,
a.j reported by you in the breakdown
of the final vote. The reference i.s to
(he spoiled ballot.
On a percentage basis of course, the
whole thing just falls -apart, but by
actual count, the Commerce men and
the Jurists get a perfect score, viz.,
spoilcd-ballots-none. The Art_men
follow with two, Sciencemen with
three and the Aggies with four spoiled
ballots in that order.
The results speak for themselves,
making comment unnecessary except
to say that marking a ballot as per
instructions seems much too simple
for some of the boys.
Wedge Edge
Dear Sir,
Once again the commercial entertainment czars, through the Innocent
efforts of the campus Legion, are levelling their guns at the Lord's Day Alliance Association. Nothing would
satisfy them more than to have the
Legion wih its case and present featured professional artists on Sundays.
In the long view, a revision of the
existing laws would be the thin edge
of the wedge leading to unrestricted
commercial activity in Vancouver,
This situation would no doubt please
the supporters of the "superior" American way of life.
Hit The Nail
Dear  Sir:
G. Ross Turner has hit tho nail
on the head in asking how far shall
democracy go. Many people today,
for one reason or another, hasten to
declare far and wide their democratic
beliefs, and in so doing, overlook the
fact that there are those who would
take advantage of just this.
It seems to me that the better our
democracy becomes, the more we
value it, tho more alert and prepared we must be lest we lose it.
Who would ignore a cancer in his
body or a thief in his house? No
one would even tolerate either, for
they constitute a threat to life and
livelihood. It is wise then to tolerate
various ideologies which are foreign
to our land and a threat to our way
of life?
Tolerance should not become a
blind apathy to existing dangers or a
stepping stone for those who would
later step on us. Neither should
self-preservation be confused with

of a democratic country to determine which is which. Several clear-

The qualifications essential for tht

the office of Secretary, I shall make
no promises which cannot be fulfilled. But I do make this promise-
that I shall carry out the duties pertaining to the office with willingness,
efficiency and regard for the interests

my capabilities.
The duties of all members of the

I have thoroughly Investigated the

If the anticipated release of "pass

In aranging the social calendar so

Severely wounded" while" fighting with the French under-
ground, Louis Rocher, a French student, receives hospitalization
from the ISS home at Combloux. Here he enjoys his first real
securtiy since 1939 and is free from all of the uncertainties which
characterise French life today.
French Students Aided By
ISS Home Near Combloux
This Is the second In a series of
articles by Robin Farr, UBC
representative to the ISS conference in England last summer.
Etienne Didier is a French youth
who was arrested by the Gestapo
when he was 15 years old. He had
entered the French Resistance movement at 13 and during those two
years he was accredited with shooting six Germans and blowing up
three Nazi supply trains. When Didier was finally arrested, his entire
family was shot and he was dispatched to a German prison fortress,
where he spent more than 22 months
in solitary confinement. In the summer of 1945 when he returned to
France he was only 18 years old, but
through his war experiences he was
a mature man. He was suffering from
a nervous breakdown, and as he had
no home to which he could return,
Etienne applied to the International
Student Service for aid. They sent
him to the French student hostel at
Combloux in Southern France where
he might enjoy several weeks of rest
and comradeship with other students.
Louis Rocher, at the outbreak of
the war, was studying at the Ecole
Superiere. He fought for the Resistance, and before he was 23 years old,
had the responsibility of the direction of an entire region of the Maquis.
In the last year of the war, he participated with the American army in
the occupation of Austria. In the
summer of 1945, returning to France
severely wounded, he was sent by
the ISS to the student home at Combloux for hospitalization. Here he
could enjoy the first security he had
known since 1939, and the freedom
from all the  worries and uncertain-

ties   which   characterize   French   life
In the summer of 1945, the International Student Service acquired a
lodge which stood in the tiny village
of Combloux in the French Savoy
district. Formerly, the lodge had been
a fashionable resort for vacationing
Parisiennes, but that summer its
name was significantly changed to
"Chalet des Etudiants."
Students like Rocher and Didier
know at first hand the capacity of
the home serving as the recuperation
and rehabiliation centre for European students who have returned
from concentration or deportation
camps, forced labor contingents or
resistance movements. Sick, wounded
or mentally tired, these students may
apply to the ISS committee in Paris
foi a month's lodging at the home
where they can be restored to health,
and resume a normal university life.
At present, there are over 2,000 applications filed with the ISS in Paris.
The Chalet stands on a hillside
across the valley from the famous
Mount Blanc. During their month in
the Chalet the students may join
discussion and study groups, hold
concerts, take walks through the
countryside, and enjoy what to them
is an almost-forgotten luxury, a decent meal. The f°°d may not be
plentiful, (black soup, horse meat,
potatoes, bread and cheese is a typical meal) but whatever is lacking in
quantity is made up by the unrestrained mirth and the table singing
of the students who seem determined
to forget for a few minutes all their
passing cares.
These are the commonplace things
which students like Etienne and
Louis will remember about the ISS
home at Combloux. The International
Student Service alone fulfilled this
vital function in French university
life. Canadian university students
find it difficult to realize how precious to sick and wounded European
students is the knowledge that their
home, sponsored by the students of
the New World, represents a certain
solidarity  in  the  university world.
After 1947, Etienne and Louis hope
that the present relief centre will
become a cultural centre for students
the world over. It will become a
home where Canadians on study
tours and university exchanges will
meet European students to exchange
ideas and opinions. That is the promise   which   Combloux   holds   for   the

Jack Volkovitch. fourth candidate
for junior member, set for himself
what ho termed ''a more humble platform". He declared that it was not
his duty to make rash promises, but to
provide for a sensible over-all series
of plans.
Volkovitch pledged himself to providing an efficient frosh initiation
week, and said that if elected he would
bring pressure to bear on the government to build the medical school now.
If the medical school is not built, he
continued, "I plan to make the government feel the pressure of a disappointed body of students."
He promised to support clubs, to
bring up a measure providing for more
than one bookstore on the campus,
and to reestablish a laundry service
for athletes.
Ken Downs, previously a contender
for the position of coordinator of activities, withdrew from the race. In
a statement to Election Committee officials he said: "I would like to withdraw my candidacy for coordinator of
activities. Unforeseen circumstances
preclude the possibility of my serving
on the Student Council. I would like
therefore to thank my seconders and
supporters and pledge my support to
the candidacy of Jack E'rown for this
Candidate for the position of coordinator of activities, Bob Bagnall declared his support of a better organization of the Pass Fund feature, and to
take over, with the help of council
and treasurer, the investigation of
the needs of campus clubs. He promised also to set up a publicity committee for the better publicity of
campus activities.
Second candidate for CSA, Jack
Brown asked his seconder Laird Wilson to speak for him. Wilson asked
students to judge Brown by his experience and the time he has to devote to campus activities. He declared
that Brown's third attribute, initiative and enthusiasm, taken with his
other two, would enable him to act
as coordinator efficiently.
Gordon Baum, candidate for sophomore member on the council, stressed
his past experience as a leader and his
knowledge of organization as qualifications for sophomore member. He
cited also the fact that he caused the
freshman elections to be held, and
was elected president of the freshman
Alvin Nemetz, other candidate for
sophomore member, declared that his
abilities and qualifications for the
position, both through previous high
school experience and scholastic standing would enable him to serve as
sophomore member efficiently, He
aslo stressed that his youth would
provide an adequate balance for the
older members on the campus.

Since th» initiation of the feature
in October, 1945, scores of UBC
beauties have gone "on the spot" to
express their personal opinions about
subjects of their own choosing, discussing topics ranging from free port
zones in Canada to the exposure of
the female thigh by Mardi Gras
chorus girls.
Countless beauties have broken into print by writing about writing,
raving about raving, and philosophizing about philosophy. One beauty discussed the elements that make for a
happy marriage and another managed successfully to raise two or
three children, all within the allotted space on page two.
One coed viewed with alarm the
exodus of Canadians to the States;
another deplored the decline of moral
standards of UBC students. One commended the UBC gym; another, the
Vancouver symphony orchestra, One
modestly pointed out that beauty isn't

Some wrote in prose. Some wrote
in verse. And some just wrote.
Others didn't even do that. In fact
one beauty submitted an article that
bore a remarkable resemblence to
an essay originally attributed to some
struggling amateur named Bacon.
But the pay-off came the following

Varsity Ruggermen Squelch
Lions In McKechnie Opener
fr._5*CrJi*_>  . t* tai. ., ;»ii*i_fC«»»
Varisty Thunderbirds ran wild Saturday afternoon when they trounced
the disorganized Vancouver Lion rugby fifteen 34-3 in the opening tilt of
the McKenchie Cup games played in
the Stadium. Art Dodd's downtown
lads were no match for the well oiled
teamwork of Roy Ralne's Blue and
Gold rugby men.
The largest crowd of the season
cheered themselves hoarse, as the
student squad executed every trick
of the trade including some of the
most amazing over the head passing
that has been seen in the Stadium,
to completely disorganize the Yellow
and Green shirted rep team of Vancouver.
The only time that the play was in
any way close was in the first 20
minutes, when both teams were trying
unsuccessfully for a score.
Opening  score  came  when scrum
half Johnny Wheeler made a beautiful drop kick from beyond the 40-yard
line making the score 3-0.
A few moments later George Biddle,
the Varsity five-eights, was slightly
injured on the play, and full back
Bud Spiers exchanged positions with
him for the remainder of the game.
Wing Gordie McKee and three-
quarter Russ Latham then treated the
fans to some nice speed and team
work as they carried the ball up the
field in successive runs. The pair then
went over for two scores as first Lat-

H.M.C.S. Warrior, today at 12: p.m. on
the Upper Stadim Field.
The soccer boys are fresh from a
big win on Saturday, having downed
North Shore Merchants 6-1. Besides
this, they have an impressive string of
victories to back them up. Saturday's
game was the first game they have
played since Christmas day, when
they went down under the boots of
North Shore Reds, to the tune of 4-2.
Considering that the Reds are In the
Pacific Coast League, and that they
downed all their other opposition by
much larger margins, the students
fared very well in this contest.
The Navy lads will have lo be In

spoi'ts minded to watch.
ham and then McKee fell on the ball
over the line. Both convert attempts
by Don Nesbit failed.
Seconds later Captain of the team,
Barry Morris, raced over the line for
another try, and Nesbit split the posts
for the convert, making the score
From then on it was just a succession
of scoring attempts, as the defense of
the Lions faded away to practically
nothing, under the constant pounding
of the faster, better trained, and better
conditioned students.
Al Carlyle went over the line next
to add three points, but Barry Morris
couldn't get the range for the convert. Forward Barney Curby soon
added another three to the fast mounting total, and another forward, Hartt
Crosby led a mixup near the Vancouver line and finally got the ball
over to Don Nesbit who crashed over
the line to make the score 23-0.
Russ Latham who was high scorer
on the Varsity fifteen of last fall
maintained his record, and smashed
over the line for his second try to
make the score 26-0. His own attempt
at a convert was wide.
Morris dropped a free kick over the
bars next to make the score 29-0, and
announcer Buddy Lott began looking
for an adding machine.
It began to look as though the Lions
were going to be completely shut out,
but late in the second half the Yellow and Green raced up the field and
had the fans on their feet. When a
penalty kick was awarded them, their
ace booter Harry Winters made no
mistake and robbed the 'Birds of a
The final scoring came in the last
ten minutes of the game when Nes-

and in a mad scramble of Vancouver
players Latham crashed through and
fell on the leather. Captain Morris
completed the play by making the
convert good and the final score was
Coach Haines decided not to send
in a replacement when Doug Reid
was hurt, but even with a man short,
and with the Lions using two fresh
replacements, the Blue and Gold
wonder team held the play.
The kick - off was made by
Professor Harry Maloney of the University of Stanford. Half time entertainment was provided by four pretty
Majorettes under the dierction of Don

Feminine Ski Crew Stars

Varsity's feminine ski enthusiasts made a name for themselves over the weekend as the girls' team went south to Martin

University grass hockey teams
trounced their league rivals. UBC,
playing on the campus, pulled off a
3-1 win over North Shore Indians,
while the Varsity crew at Brockton
set back Vancouver by the same
The play on the campus was a little
rugged in the first half because of
the muddy field. UBC, however,
ploughed through in a series of wild
rushes and finally Les Bullen knocked in the first goal.
After the breather, the UBC forward line pounced on the ball at
centre and speedy Norm Tupper
scored. North Shore pressed hard and
finally scored their only goal after
a mad scramble in front of the net.
Later, Norm Tupper retaliated with
his second goal to end the game in
UBC's favor.
At Brockton, Varsity's Don Curry
took the honours with two well-
earned counters. The game was a fast
one with the Varsity combination
showing great improvement over
previous performances. In the first
half Don Curry and Stefan Arneson
both scored forVarsity's favour. However, Vancouver scored once before

of that typical action that Ubyssey photographer Danny Wallace caught in the above shot. The

Thunderbirds' Ron Weber led the UBC hoop quintet to an
avenging 57-50 victory over the Whitman College Missionaries
at Walla Walla, Washington, on Saturday night when he and
teammate Harry Kermode collected a total of 36 points between
them to break a three-game losing streak that had dogged the
Canadian melonmen during their latest road contests.
Their win at Walla Walla left the$>
Thunderbirds   even-steven   with   the
Whitmanites who had tossed the visitors for a 61-50 lass the previous night
in the first of the twin conference fixtures.
Whitman's Missionaries took a dim
view of tho early Thunderbird 8-2
lead and tightened up the play to
gain a 29-19 advantage at the halfway
But the Missionaries' first canto effort proved only a further incentive
to the Blue and Gold visitors and
the 'Birdmen surged ahead by virtue
of the Weber and Kemrode hemp-
kitting. Weber contributed sixteen
points during the gap-closing process
and Kermode managed 11 markers on
the Thunderbird score sheet.
Bob Haas finally broke the Whitman
charm with a two-point basket and
from there on the 'Birds were able to
keep ahead of the game. Only in vain
did the Whitmanites try to stage a
comeback, reaching a thrilling 49-48
crisis with the Canadians still on top.
Weber came through with four more
points and he and his buddies rolled
the Thunderbird machine up to the
57 mark before calling it an evening.
Saturday night's win was the seventh victory for the Thunderers who
now stand second to the league-leading
Idaho five. Idaho still boasts a perfect
season, being responsible for two of
the three UBC losses.

WHITMAN—Pennington 4, Portch 7,

School 17-7.
Marie Summers chalked up lfi
points in the game with the Island
gals and six in the game with the
prospective teachers, an afternoon

"Boy oh boy ., am I ever ready for a Sweet Cap I"
Varsity Lad Places First
In Downhill, Giant Slalom
Once again, Garvin Robinson, freshman student, showed
the Western Canadian ski world that he is the hottest thing on
the hickory planks, after successfully winning the senior men's
downhill and slalom championships at Revelstoke last Friday
and Saturday, defeating more than eight contestants in each of
the two events. To  describe  his  downhill  race  on
-$Mt. Revelstoke downhill course would
take practically a book, but here are
Chiefs Edge A's
To Knot Series
Varsity's underpublicized Chiefs
whooped back into the Senior A
hoop picture -on Friday night, as
they showed a complete reversal of
form to eke out a narrow 35-34 win
over the New Westminster Adanacs
at the Royal City YMCA.
The win gave Doug Whittle's
charges a new lease on the City playoffs as they knotted the semi-final
series at one game apiece.
Meanwhile in Chilliwack, the vaunted Meralomas proved to valley fans
that last week's upset at the hands
of the Lauries was Just a quirk of
fate, as they subjected the Pie-rates
to a 40-28 pasting Saturday night.
In a highly-partial atmosphere, the
Whittlemen set their teeth early,
pranced to an early lead, and were
out in front by a 13-9 margin at the
quarter pole.
As Reid Mitchell and Hsrb Capozzi
continued to turn on the heat, the
Whittlemen extended their margin
by another basket, and as the half-
time whistle shrilled, they controlled
the game to the tune of a 25-19 count.
Loping onto the sagging maples
after the breather, the two squads
battled on even terms throughout th.-'
third canto, and it wasn't until thc-
final quarter that the fans thought
the roof might cave in on the battling
'X M Adanacs, sparked by Brud
MaVyon, who garnered an evening's
total of 11 points, began to close the
gap with a rapid succession of relay
plays that weren't thwarted by the
Blue and Gold hoopsters until Reid
Mitchell tosed in the clincher at the
33 minute mark.
Varsity's scoring roster was spread
evenly, although pivotmen Herb Capozzi earned his honors as high scorer with a meagre 7 points. Mathsson
stood out for the Adanacs and received able assistance from cagy
veteran  Pop Pay and  Skeet;r Lizee.
CHIEFS—Capozzi 7, Amm, Mitchell
G, Bossons 5, Broadhead 4, Town, Le-
tham 5. McLeod, Cook, Bajus 4,
Boyes 4. Total —35.
ADANACS-Matheson 11, Pay 4,
Eclmundson 3, Julien 3, Lizee 5, Nor-
thup 2, Gray 4, Bscot tl. Hwitt 1.
the highlights. His previous record,
which was set during the Christmas
training period, of four minutes 20
seconds was broken by himself by one
minute, 18.2 seconds. Several quick
turns above the cliff, a short control
turn, and then he "shussed" to the
Robinson outdistanced the "pro",
Bill Wellman of Banff by more than
19 seconds with Gerry Lockhart, another UBC man, closely contesting the
third spot with 3:20.6.
In the slalom event, Gar turned
in the third fastest time on his first
run, but managed to 'get the feel of
the hill on his second attempt and
place well ahead in the total time to
gain first spot for the event. His time
for the two runs were 2:17.8.
Another UBC skier placed well up
in the slalom contest when Arnie Teas-
dale gained sixth place with 2:27.6.
It was in the combined downhill and
slalom events that UBC forged ahead.
Robinson with 160 points placed first
with Gerry La;khart coming fourth
with 149.11 points. Sixth spot fell to
Arnie Teasdale with 145.09 and Doug
Fraser eighth with 144.42. John Frazee, managed to grasp twelfth with a
total of 137.77.
It is now quite evident to the Olympic Ski Selection Committee that Gar
Robinson is definitely Olympic ma-
erial for the 1948 Olympic games. However, to be sure of a position, Robinson must enter the Dominion Championships held back East next month.
To date, it is not known whether he
can get away from his studies for the
event or not.
With this recent win, Coach Vajda
figures the team has a good chance of
copping several events at Martin Pass
this Friday and Saturday when the
Northwest Intercollegiate Ski Championships are held under the auspices
of the University of Washington.
The cross-country event will be held
Friday morning and will be five miles
in length—somewhat shorter than the
12 mile course at Revelstoke.
