VOL. XXIX
VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 1947.
No. 56.
By  JOE  GILBERT
With this issue of the Ubyssey, another stepping stone is laid in the
long pathway of peace that exists
between the United States and its
neighbor to the north.
Returning a favor accorded by students of UBC last month, guest artist,
from the University of Washington
have tucked copy pencils behind
their ears, allowed Canadian printers'
ink to flow through their veins, aire
prepared this morning's issue amid
trials and tribulations. The reader
must judge whether or not the finished product is a success. But behind
outer artificialities of front page
makeup and byline stories, this journalistic adventure implies much more.
ONLY THE BEGINNING
It' is a continuation of the past
cdupled with a venture into the
future. It is, we hope, only the beginning of additional transfers of
talents designed to establish an envied relationship between the two
schools. Such a relationship has an
illustrious background.
What could be more secure then an
unfortified border, stretching into
thousands of miles, linking two
mighty oceans and peacefully separating two mighty nations? Across the
border, American and Canadian lighthouses wink at each other as ships
pass between, while each seemingly
takes it by the arm and ushers it
through the channel. The Peace
Arch we passed as we travelled northward stands like a mother hen quietly watching her two youngsters,
beaming over their progress and
achievements.
PINAFORE AT UW
Our journalistic exchange had more
immediate predecessors. Only last
■week the UBC musical society presented to a University of Washington
audience their production of "H.M.S,
Pinafore," which was excellently received. Later this month, Washington's band will give a concert here
on the campus. And last week the
University witnessed British Columbia
lacrosse players in an exhibition which
many hope will lead to inauguration
of the sport at Washington. This may
lead to regular athletic competition
between the two schools on the athletic field. The two colleges had a
dual swim meet in January, with
UBC giving Washington the stiffen
competition to date.
The seeds have been planted. Tie-e
who follow will gently nurture them
' until the flowers of free exchange
may be employed by all. Our meage-
contribution has been an honor and
a privilege.
Concerted Charity
Drive Proposed
A committee to recommend the
best way to meet charitable monetary
demands on University of British
Columbia students was proposed ley
AMS Treasurer Don McRae Monday
liicht    t the Student Council in, cling.
According to McRae, throughout
the school year students are burdened
with too many different monetary appeals I'rcm such organizations es Ii'S.
Red Cross, Community Chest and
Aid to China. He doc! reel that students do not have enough money to
contribute more than $3 each year
to all drives for money.
McRae believes thai the propos fl
committee should draw up a plan
(or a concerted, ■ U-ineliisA e driv.

functions designated as major charity functions whose preee ds would
go   to  prc-delvrmined  charities.

UBC Responsible
For Blood Supply
"Vancouver hospitals will be completely dependent en University of
British Columbia students for then-
next three weeks' blood transfusion
supply," E. C. Kenny, Provincial
Director of the Blood Transfusion
Service, said yesterday.
Beginning next Monday, one of the
Red Cross mobile blood donor units
will be stationed in the Reading Room
behind Brock Hall, and the downtown clinic will close. Vancouver
must get her 500 weekly pints of free
blood from students .
Anyone who hasn't been contacted
and who wishes to donate blood may
go directly to the Reading Room
clinic. The hours are 10 a.m. to 3:30
p.m., five days a week.
Council Accepts
Revamped Code
With a minimum of controversy,
the Student Council Monday night
accepted all recommendations of the
Constitution Revision committee for
changes in  the AMS code.
Tlie unanimous vote necessary l
revise the code or any section then -
of was received after the USC prei -
iously had approved those changi
subject to  that  body.
Only controversial point was th
rigidity of election date for USC e) -
ccutive, set as thj first Wednesday in
March. AMS Treasurer Don McRae
earlier had suggested that the election procedure clause be changed to
read "elections completed by th:
first Wednesday in March."
After discussion of the proposed
change, the group voted to retain
the present clause covering the election of executives of undergraduate
societies with the stipulation that
"elections procedure be revised with
a vrw to having AMS and USC
elections completed at an earlier
date."
A shorter election period will
prob.ibly increase student interest
in government as well a.s enable
elected executives to get acquainted
with their duties before spring exams, according to Bill McKay, USC
, br.irmaii. _

the Crimson Tide will be uprooted, carried through town in
celebration of victory and later planted on the UBC Quad.

policies set forth in the Throne Speech

Dr. J. A Crumb, but he expressed
regret that his party's offer to coalesce with the government was rejected.

Speech, John Cowan, leader of the

the proposed measures on the grounds
that they would stifle free enterprise
and private initiative, He was followed by Liberal Leader, Bob Dodd
who stated that the LPP was crawling for crumbs from the CCF table.
The banking bill was presorted by
Finance Minister Jim Sutherland,
who stated that it is the bank managers, not bank magnates who know
banking practice, and Jack Maguire,
Housing Minister, read his bill, which
put the government in the housing

Six Teams
Cleared On
Eligibility
Bill McKay, eligibility committee
i hi inn;.n. has cleaned all six teams
for  the  Victoria  Invasion.
The men's grass hockey team may
not go, however, for other reasons
than ' lit-ibility. McKay, who is also
socc. r captain, phoned Victoria yesterday and learned the HMCS Naden
.grass hockey team probably will not
have enough players and equipment
to take the; field against UBC.
McKay blamed the MAD office for
the delay in eligibility lists coming
in, and for his recent action declaring all teams but on? ineligible for
the trip,
"It seems rather ironic that a
procedure requiring 15 minutes work
by a team manager and 10 seconds
by the MAD president would require
seven weeks to be carried out," he
said.
"I am hopeful that the MAD is
taking stepa to insure that this confusion is not repeated n:xt year."
MAD President Keith McDonald
commented:
"There will be no repetition of
this in the future. The chairman of
the eligibility committee could have
brought this up at any time during
the past weeks, and it seems to me
he picked an opportune time when
he could open up with plenty of
fanfare."
Rippon Guilty-But
Sentence Reduced
Student Council lias upheld Tom
Rippon':. conviction of being guilty
und.r the terms of Article 24 of the
AMS Cede but has reduced his pun-
i. huii nt to th a t of suspended sentence-
Tina is the outcome of an appeal
made by Rippon to Council against
the verdict of the discipline committee, which had judged him guilty
and h, d suspended his AMS pass
privileges  for  tlie   rest  of   the  year.
Rippon, through his counsel, Ron
Grant, admitted his guilt but maintained that his case was no different
from that of another athlete edso recently charged with playing for an
outside team but who had been
awarded  only  a   suspended  sentence.
Bill McKay, Council member and
chairman of the discipline committee,
insisted that there wen* differences
in the two cases which warran*- i
differing punishments. In the final
vote Council followed the recommendations of MAD president Keith MacDonald who suggested reducing Rip-
pon's punishment.
Nominations for sophomore junior and senior Arts offices close
at 12:30 p.m. Monday.
Each nomination must be signed
by 10 members of the Arts Undergraduate Society, and should be

hands Across the border
They'd like to see us lose it. The big bear,
and his millions of fettered underlings, whose
suspicious eyes consider us from as far east
as the Siberian plains, would all like to see
us lose whatever it is that enables two countries
to live side by side as do the world's two
great democracies.
They'd like to see us lose the understanding necessary for unrestricted exchange of
goods from one country to another, the candid
willingness to extend armed hands across the
border, the state of mind that causes the
citzens of one country to speak of those of the
other —not as foreigners or aliens — but as
neighbors.
They can't understand why our armed legions do not patrol either side of the border.
They credit it as little less than stupidity that
our respective presses are not at work daily
discrediting the intents of the other. To them
it is inconceivable that the northern neighbor
is not up in arms with fear when the southern
neighbor holds the atom bomb. Also that the
southern neighbor says only "glad to hear it"
when the northern one unearths an apparently unlimited store of plutonium.
They would like to drive in a wedge that
would make the 49th parallel more than a
line of map boundaries. They would like to see
it a boundary of ideologies — political, economic and religious. To this end they have
planted (fheir revolutionary trouble-makers
in the capitals of both nations, and among the
discontented in each. Because as long as
Canada and the United States continue their
status quo the two nations constitute an im
possible bulwark  against  an  ideology  based
on subordination of the individual.
The result must be disconcerting to those
of the hammer and sickle. Look what 1947
is bringing—U.S. tourists by the thousands to
Montreal's Laurentians, as well as record
numbers bound for the Banff-Jasper area and
the Alcan highway scenery. And surely the
bear has heard with misgivings of the trend
of labor organizations to overlook national
boundaries for union aims and constitutions?
Moscow's Izvestia said last week that something "clearly aggressive in character" was
going on at Churchill, only to have National
Defense Minister Claxton invite military attaches of ten foreign countries to Manitoba
to see for themselves that "all the discussion
and veiled charges about what is going on
have no foundation in fact."
*    *    *    *
Three weeks ago fifiteen students from the
University of British Columbia came to Seattle.
They wrote, edited and published one issue
of our University Daily.
Now we are up to reciprocate. It may be
a good issue, or it may be bad. But good or
bad, we'll do our best, we will have enjoyed
ourselves, and we will go home feeling good
that we won't have caused any "border incidents," that our footsteps weren't dogged by
agents for the length of our stay, and that
the customs man looks only into our baggage—
but left our thoughts to ourselves—as we
crossed to go home.
—Guest editorial by Gib Austin, University of
Washington Daily,
By JIM
The following represents the impressions, observations and general
comments of Jim Grant, University
of Washington Daily reporter and
raconteur extraordinary. As a birds-
eye view of the trip north, it is herewith submitted for general perusal
and comment.
Quietly with a few words from well
wishers, the group split and went
to their vehicles. The advance guard
and recon patrol left the University
of Washington at 1305 hours, followed
by the main body a few minutes
ia'c", Net until 1541 hours did the
.ear euard shove c.fY.
Operation Daily was under way.
Correspondents were assigned to
the rear guard to watch for stragglers
and accidents. As the car pulled out
of the city limits, faces were grim
and determination was written all
over everyone. (Ed. Note: Nobody
wrote all over me!)
1559 hours: Passed two pickets who
were parading in front of a highway
cafe.   Relayed tlie information to the
pilot who said not to worry.
STILL NO COPS
1617 hours: Entered Everett without
encountering any difficulty. So far,
no traffic cops.
1629 hours: Breezed through Marys-
ville, No losses,
1707 hours: Mount Vernon and still
no traffic cops. Had been briefed
that the officers were furious on this
road.
GRANT
17U hours: Sailed by two hitchhiking sailors who hopefully extend-
e  their thumb.';. We waved to them
1744 hows: Bcllingham and a stop
to refuel before we enter enemy
territory. Pilot says gas costs more
aerosfe the line.
1819 hours: Cigarettes running low,
pilot stops at Blaine before we hit
the Peace Arch. Buys one buck's
worth  of Lucky Strikes.
1825 hours: The Peace Arch and the
immigration officials. They're not
suspicious of the purpose of this mission so we get across without much
trouble.
LOOKS THE SAME
1908 hours: In enemy territory now.
Can't tell the difference as it all
looks the same. No gun emplacements and no sentries.
As the rear guard entered New
Westminster, the pilot asked the navigator to look for landmarks. A
wounded street car staggering all
over the tracks was sighted and followed in to the objective. We hit
the Vancouver Hotel with no losses
and scrounged up a meal before heading for the final destination.
A friendly agent gave us the last
directions and as we sighted the
target with no losses, everyone
breathed a sigh of relief.
The Daily gang from the University of Washington had arrived at the
University of British Columbia.
Pinafore' Scores Distinct
Success On UW Campus
By WILL FADER
UBC Parallels UW Med School Fight
By WILL FADER
Americans are traditionally uninformed
about Canada's '"five" provinces, or anything
Canadian. However, a preliminary "study
course" on the University of British Columbia
has revealed at least one striking parallel between this school and the University of Washington.
The Washington school is now concluding
a struggle of several years duration to obtain
a fully accredited medical school. The UBC
is in the midst of a struggle to obtain a similar
school.
Tlie new U of W medical school has recently been assured sufficient funds to build
complete clinical and laboratory facilities as
well as all necessary lecture and office rooms.
WIDE SUPPORT
The Washington program has been well-
supported by the president of the University,
Dr. Raymond B. Allen, and by many prominent members of the medical profession practicing in Seattle and other Washington cities.
Work on the huge building program will
begin on the U of W campus in the near
future, and will assure the graduation of at
least 250 medical men yearly when the school
is operating at full capacity.
We have discovered that the UBC is
working hard to establish a similar school
here, a school that is badly needed to cut down
the deficiency of some 5,000 medical doctors
in Canada.
The bulk of the work has been done here
by the extremely active members of the Premedical Undergraduate Society, often at the
expense of lectures and laboratory work.
At present,UBC's medical school seems far
from actuality. Many of the members of the
Provincial Government have expressed sympathy with the idea of a Western Canada
medical school, but little concrete work has
been done.
Opinion has been divided over several
plans submitted for the local school, and consequently no definite action has been taken to
use the one and a half million dollar fund
set aside for this purpose.
Of the four possible courses of action, the
establishment of a pre-clinic school at the
UBC with these funds and future building of
clinical facilities seems the most satisfactory.
This course would be contingent upon
assurance of future funds to complete the
necessary clinical buildings.
A second course would be the building of less satisfactory pre-clinical facilities
on the campus, and the use of some of the
one and a holf million dollars for conversion
of downtown hospital facilities to make them
adequate for clinical teaching.
DOWNTOWN SCHOOL
A third plan of action being considered
would be the establishment of a complete preclinical and clinical school in downtown Vancouver, to be administered by the UBC.
Of course, the last alternative is to postpone any construction until more funds are
made available.
Having watched with great interest the
long bitter struggle to obtain a full-fledged
medical school in Seattle, we are equally interested in the final outcome here.
With a tug of our forelock and a
foot-sere pc of respect, we of the
University of Washington salute tho
Musical Society of University of
British Columbia for an outstanding
rerfoimnnce  of   "H.M.S.  Pinafore."
"Pinafore" was so smoothly and
skillfully presented that the appreciative audience was reminded with a
slight twinge of shame of some pa'st
U of W musical productions.
Musically, the UBC intemational-
exchange show was near profession )1
standards, and the acting was at least
:e excellent. The evidences of careful directing were impressive, and
with a realistic set contributed to a
wonderfully    entertaining    evening.
Consistently good music' was played

One of the best solo performances
vea.s by John Fish as Captain Cor-
eer; n of H.M.S. Pinafore. His voice
eentrol and diction were excellent,
and his dramatic work was equally
fine.
Another outstanding solo perform-
imv? was given by Geraldin? Foote,
who left the part of Hebe to her understudy in order to sing the role
of Buttercup.
Bettina Purvis, the original Buttercup, was taken unexpectedly ill as
she arrived in Seattle, and was unable to appear on the stage.

U.S. Refuses Comment On
Mock Parliament Measure
UBC IMPRESSES VISITING YANK SCRIBES
A spokesman for the United States
covernmvnt said that there was "no
comment" on the University of British Columbia Mock Parliament's bill
Wednesday for annexation of the
States.
An informed source, however, close
to a relieiibb authority said that it
was rumored in high circles that the
suggestion, confidentially, was looked
upon with considerable approval by
an anonymous high official.
"Would that nwam they would get
our $296 billion debt and John L.
Lewis too?" a grinning official chortled,
A Senator from the deep South
was heard to say that his state would
secede again. Tlie Junior Senator
from Texas declared that his state
would set itself up as a sovereign
nation.
"We hava always found that the
United States was a heavy burden
for us to carry, particularly," he
said, "during wars. It was all Texas,
sub, could do to win the last war,
what   with   damyankees   and   RCAF
scaring - - - . out of our cavalry
mounts."
Otherwise the suggestion met with
almost universal approval. It was
thought, however, that some difficulty might be experienced in moving the government flies from Washington to Ottawa.
A logistics expert estimated that
the combined facilities of the New
York Central, Canadian Pacific, Great
Northern, Canadian National and
Southern Georgia could do the job
in five years if a direct track were
laid between the two capitals.
The problem of housing the Washington bureaucrats in the Canadian
city loomed as a major obstacle.

SIGNBOARD
Wide open spaces, overwlvelming hospitality and a
bright future—that's the University of British Columbia
as seen through the eyes of the delighted American
visitor,-:.
UPC i.s a h wil thy, growing youngster, compared to the
University of Washington, already past the baby stage
hut not yet mellowed with age like many American
colleges
We have many more buildings than UBC, but we
enjoyed with envy your Brock Tlall. Student unions
have been ;i touchy .subject withU niversity of Washington students, for many years. We have planned and saved
and dreamed, hut Washington's student union building
still exists only on paper.
The slower pace up here is a welcome vacation from
the frantic, deadlino-to deadline life at the University.
It seems the visiting journalists slightly astounded the
Pubsters with their burst of editorial energy Tuesday
afernoon.
Canadians must be a hardy race to make it to school
in the morning after all tlie mid-week events scheduled
at UBC. The softer University of Washington students
car use only on weekends, and would probably not survive long on a steady diet of dances in the middle of the
week. Univrsity standards rules enforce a 10:00 p.m. lock- j
up   for   women's  residences  on   week  nights,   with  a  2 ;

Student Forum
Bill 80 was passed by the British
Columbia Legislature in 1946 and
makes provision for the Lieutenemt-
Governor-in-Council to extend the
regulation embodied in P.C. Order
No. 225 respecting consumer credit,
which order was made by tlie Wartime Prices and Trado Board of the
Federal government. Generally this
restricts the consumers in their usa
of instalment buying and charge accounts. The federal order was withdrawn on Jjnuary 11, 1947, and at
the present session of the British Columbia house it is a moot question
whether the government will use tlie
power granted by Bill 80 or not.
Should the B.C. government avail
itself of it: power and restrict credit.
newly graduated students and other
low-income groups will experience
great difficulty in setting up homes,
offices, businesses, Bill 80 will deny
tho benefits cf long-term financing
to those who most urgently require
them.
It is doubtful whether Bill 80 will
benefit anybody. The merchant, when
this pollers' market ends, will find his
business curtailed and with it employment in manufacturing industries curtailed as well. This adds
up to less prosperity; what we need
is more prosperity.
There may be ills in credit buying
and loading the poor consumer with
debt, but that is up to th; consumer
and Ihe credit grantor in the same
wiy that a bank, insurance' company,
or a niortgag.. company regulate
their endit : re.nt'ng. Credit in itself is tin- thing that lees made ou '
econoiv'e- development possible l!

Panhell Banquet
Next Wednesday
Accomplishments of the past year
and plans for the future will be reviewed next Wednesday, when old
and new Panhellenic members gather
at 6:30 p.m. in Brock Hall dining
room for their annual banquet.
The scholarship and activities cup
will be awarded to the women's fraternity deemed outstanding in both
fields. Mrs. Sherwood Lett, past president of the University Women's Club
will discuss the proposed women's
residence construction.
The problems and progress of local
Greek letter chapters will be analyzed
at the Panhellenic Workshop, which
will follow the banquet.
Each University of British Columbia sorority may send six delegates
to the banquet, Roma McDonald, Panhellenic president, said yesterday. One
alumna and the incoming and outgoing Panhellenic representatives from
each group are included in this
number.
Honored guests at the banquet will
include Dean Dorothy Mawdsley, honorary Panhellenic president, Dr, Dorothy Smith and Miss Joyce Hallamore.
by regulations issued by the Lieuten-
ant-Govemor-in-Counc!il. Bill 80
provides only for arbitrary regulation
without the salutary effect of public
debate on the floor of the house at
Victoria.
Surely the judgment of a business
man as to what credit he should
grant is much bettor than the opinion
of the man who is not in business.
At the very least it should be debated.
FIGURES
The significance of instalment buying compared to the general quantity
or retail business is small. In the
United States in 1033, 42.9'J of all
retail sales were on credit and 11.4''.
were on the instalment plan and
45% ceish sales, This is a good many
years ago but represents the latest
available: public figures.
One or two large private establishments in Vancouver shew that only
one-half of one per cent uf their
consumer credit-sales go bad. The
insignificant percentage of delinquent
instalment buyers and the small proportion of instalment sales to total
retail sales make it unroasonabl; to
penalize the low income groups and
prevent them from enjoying the
fruils of the twentieth century by
regulation of the Lieutcnant-Govor-
nor-in-C'ounci! Sin h limitations at
leasi   require a  full  drees <!. b -t..
CASH BUSINESS
To penalize tile eon. tuner somebody should belli fit and the onlv
i, i -,,'-.• who Would ep.'.a.ir In benefit
are the retail merchant.-; who would
he able to cut down on their book-
la eping shed's and conduct a totally
cash business at the cost of decreasing employment. But the main point
is that our students' living standard, |
is affected by the avail ibility of
credit, and now the war is over more
credit is necessary for us to establish
ourselves. -H. E. BOTTERELL
Women Students
Invited To Banquet
Brock Hall main lounge will be full
Thursday, April 3, when the annual
Women's Undergraduate Society and
Women's Athletic Association banquet
is held from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
All women students are invited to
the informal WUS-WAA banquet, as
guests of  the  faculty.
Such athletic awards as big and
little blocks and cups for winning
teams' will be presented, and the faculty member voted the most all round
professor will receive the WUS cup.
One of the many highlights of the
banquet will be the introduction of
Nora Clarke, president-elect of WUS.
Food To Replace
Athletic Insignia
Sorne minor Thunderbird athletes
will receive, more distinctive letter
aw -rds, and others will win food
instead of insignia if the Student
Council approves Monday's recommendations by the Men's Athletic
Directorate,
Other MAD recommendations include adoption of an official University of British Columbia sweater and
installation of a trophy case in Brock
Hall.
If the Council approves, all UBC
athletes will be invited to the annual athletic banquet the last of this
month. Banquet bids will replace
the traditional small felt letters as
awards for minor athletic attainment,
Varsity men will continue to receive their BC block letters and
heavy, navy-blue shaker-knit sweaters. In addition, a new chenille letter his tentatively been approved as
an award for outstanding second
team players and others whose work
almost wins them Thunderbird
sweaters.
The new letter will measure approximately 5 by 7 inches.
Also, an official UBC sweater is
being planned to lend uniformity to
school awards display, Dave Com-
prelli, MAA president - elect, said
yesterday.
Student leaders now are considering a distinctive design for such a
sweater. If approved the sweater
may be purchased by any student, and
school awards of all sorts may be
mounted on it.
Final MAD recommendation would
transfer the Thunderbird trophy case
from the Library basement to Brock
Hall.
A definite location has not been
approved, but suggestions would
place it on the north wall of Brock
Hall's south hall, across from the
memorial   plaques.
Constitution Is
Given Approval
The Physical Education Undergrad
Society received approval of its
constitution la.st week. Both the
Student Council and the Undergrad
Society Committee agreed to its recognition,   effective   immediately.
Recognition follows months of effort by an executive headed by Dick
Penn,
Fifty-nine students, 12 coeds and
47 men, comprise the present society.
However, all physical education undergraduates and graduates are eligible for membership.
Tlie constitution states that there
shall be honorary, graduate and active membership. Honorary and graduate members will enjoy privileges
and benefits of the organization but
will not have the right to vote. They
will not be responsible for the ?2 fee
required of active members,
At present the executive committee
consists of the following officers:
Dick Penn, president; Pat Mcintosh,
vice-president; Ross Riathie, secretary
end Norman Watt, treasurer. They
will hold office until the annual
general meeting to be held the last
week   of  this  month.

Victoria will feel the organized might of University' athletics this weekend as five teams
and a large number of Varsity supporters invade the capital city. Unofficial estimates are
that over two hundred fans will be making the trip. Many students whose homes are in Victoria will be combining the duty of cheering at the games with the pleasure of going home to

THEY CANT FOOL ME
Stepping into a strange office on a strange campus, and
sitting down to a strange typewriter with one's stomach feeling
strange from the night before to write a sport column isn't as
easy as it may sound. However, the four o'clock tea and
crumpet crowd just whistled out the door, so maybe we can
gather our half wit together and turn out a little copy. They
can't fool me with that tea and crumpet stuff. It's just an excuse to get out of the pub office for some beer and pretzels at
one of those "licensed premises."
Now a wee bit about Washington sports. Editor Dyer
(Laurie, that is) informed Seattle students o fhte UBC athletic
picture when he "columnized" recently in our "Daily," so
we'll do the same for you-all.
Souse of the Border
Current pride and joy of the pavilion athletic plant at
Washinyton is the swim team. They've whipped all comers
so far this season and are now looking forward to the national
intercollegiate meet which will be held in the Seattle pool this
month. The Huskies have broken at least one Northern Division or Coast Conference aqua record in each of a half-dozen
meets this season and six marks fell during one affair.
Football and basketball didn't fare too well during their
respective seasons. With hoards of veterans back in Coast
Conference line-ups, football calibre rose to new heights, but
Husky coach Ralph "Pest" Welch didn't have the talent to keep
up with the California schools and his squad ended up in
fourth place.
The Husky basketball picture looked bright at the start
of the 1947 season as the locals downed Minnesota and Ohio
State, the latter Big Nine champs in '46, in pre-season tilts.
Coach Hec Edmundson had the best material in 27 years of
guiding Washington basketball in his first five players. Reserves, however, were far below par for Northern Division
competition. This fact, combined with a mid-season bog in team
moral, caused the Seattleites to drop eight contests and land in
third place behind Oregon State and Washington State.
Tennis, golf, track, baseball and crew are still in the "turnout" stages. Lettermen galore are signed up for each of these
sports, so the Husky spring program should feature a championship or two.
'Mural Set-up
We have quite an extensive intramural program at ye oleic
U. of W. (1861). Hundreds of energetic, young lads participate
in 'mural boxing, basketball, volleyball, touch football, soft-
ball, badminton, handball, wrestling, swimming, tennis, table
tennis (a strenuous sport, to say the least) and track.
Washington also has quite a reputation to uphold in fencing.
Coached by Auggie Aurenheimer, the sabre and sword lads
copped 13 straight Northern Division titles in pre-war years.
The female of the species also goes in for a little muscle-
building. The gals engage in intramural swimming, hockey,
basketball, softball, badminton, volleyball and tennis. Their
motto is "Muscles will eliminate bustles". The rumor that women
Phys. Ed, majors are stronger than the average U. of W. male
is entirely fictitious.
That about winds up your tour of our athletic program.
We've got over 15,000 people occupying an area where only
12,000 formerly trod and things are a wee bit over-crowded.
The pavilion, however, has plenty of room for ambitious, foolhardy young men who believe that sweat and muscles are adequate substitutes for beer-drinking, smoking and general
carousing.

Varsity A's
In Upset Win
Varsity Inter A's pulled a surprise
\ictoly at Kine, EX. Gym Tu :dae
night by downing the favoured Arrows,  37-35.
The college hoopmen started out
playing a man-to man defence, but
switched to a zone when the Arrow
quintet started to pull away in tho
early moments of the game. The zone
defence completely bogged down the
shirt merit and the students had taken
the lead, 17-15, when the half time
whistle sounded.
Back on the maples after the half,
Varsity built up an eight point lead
on Arrows, by virtue of good shooting and the success of their zone defence. The Miltonmen were held to
3 points in the first part of the third
quarter.
START CLIMBING
The Arrow crew slowly but surely
started on the long road back, and by
the time the three quarter whistle
sounded they had moved to within
three  points  of  the student  quintet.
From there on in it was a neck-and-
neck race, with bcth teams striving
their utmost. Varsity's zone defence
was the factor which held the Arrow
crew down. With two minutes to go
the score was knotted at 35 all, but
Varsity managed to pull the fat out
of the fire with a quick basket, which
tho   Arrow   squad   failed   to   answer.

Eighteen Boxers Dispute
Spots In Two Divisions
By JIM GRANT
(UW Daily)
Intramural boxing comes to the University of British
Columbia for the first time this evening as 18 pugilists climb
into the ring to fight for UBC titles.
Fighting in two general divisions, novice and open, the
simon-pures will wind-up more than a month's training as
they enter the squared circle at 7:30 p.m. Boxers who have
never fought in amateur bouts before are in the novice class.
Three wrestling championships willy"
be decided also.  In  the heavyweight
class, Phi Delt Herb Capozzi tangles
with Phys Ed Ian Sprinkling. W. Walling will meet the winner of the
Pete Greer-D. Mitchel match for the
light-heavy crown.
A round-robin remains yet in the
middle weight division before the
finalists calk be named. H. Thurgood
meets 13. Tanner, J. A. Girven tannics
with J. Nelson and Grimmett draws
with the two winners for a spot on the
Friday card.
The fight of the evening will feature
S. Adelman and G. Wilkie in the
open welterweight class. Adelman is
a smooth boxer and counterpuncher
who times himself over the entire
fight. Fast and shifty, Wilkie packs a
punch like a mule.
Terry Fi'eld who will box Walt
Gray for th; 135-pound open clump-
ioihip is a Golden Gloves boxer who
has shown lets of class, according to
fans who have seen him work.
Traditionally, the bout the fans go
for is the heavyweight class. Pave-
litch and Golobef, both PE men, are
expected to throw lots of leather in
this event.
Dave Brown will referee the show.
Judges will be Blackie Behgert, Billy
Oates and George McLaughlin. Timekeepers are Ralph McKenzie, Harry
Miller and Duck Murray. Laurie
Dy-r, prominent athletic figure, will
prominent athletic figure, w illserve

Senior B Gals
In 29-20 Win
In the first game in the finals of
the Lower M..inland Senior B two-
game total point series, Varsity
Thunderett'es beat the Abbotsford
quintet 29-20.
Tlie girls got off to a slow start with
the varsity team holding a slim 9-6
lead at half time. However, after the
breather things livened up somewhat
: i:d with the help of such sharpshooters as Pat Gardener, who topped
the students with 9 points, and Nora
McDermott and Eileen McKillop, the-
Thunderettes kept in the game. Abbotsford never seriously threatened
their lead and the Varsity girls feel
confident that with a 9 point edge
they will end up the victors next
week and, consequently, take the
Lower Mainland Senior B chemp-
ionrhips.
However, as the Abbotsford five will
have the advantage of playing on the
home court, the issue won't be settled
until Wednesday when the second
game of thy seeries will be played in
Abbotsford.
The winner of the series will be
guaranteed the right to meet Victoria
in the B.C. Senior B championship,
