WarAidCouncil CONWAY DEFENDS BRITISH
Institutes New ACTION ON CONTINENT
Donor Methods
•   WAR   AID   Council's
blood   donor' campaign
committee is going to institute a new drive in the near
future.
Students will be contacted en
masse through classes, clubs and
fraternities. With no questions
asked donor pledge cards will be
passed out to everyone and will be
filled in in three categories.
1. Those who for medical reasons are unable to donate, but
who would if they could.
2. Those who have.signed up on
their own and have already made
donations or appointments.
3. Those who will give their
blood but have not as yet signed
up.
"Signing pledges is naturally
voluntary," George Bramhall reminded, "but this method has been
adopted to speed the university's
blood drive and finish it up in
two or three weeks instead of
having it carry on over two or
three months."

Shrew Tamers Have Difficulty
Obtaining Costumes for Play
By RON HAGGART
• AFTER UNSUCCESSFUL negotiations with Winnipeg,
Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, members of the
Players' Club are almost ready to apply to the NUS Old
Clothes Drive for costumes for their forthcoming production
of "The Taming of the Shrew".
No Canadian firm can supply tho may have to have thsm specially
large number of Italian Rennais- made. C u s t o m-built costumes
sance   costumes    needed   by    the        would   mean   a  serious  strain   on
Club although they have had no
difficulty in getting the purple
padded tights for the lover Lucen-
tio.
Fifty-three of the coloful, flowing costumes are required for the
play and  members fear that  they
their  limited budget.
The cast, meanwhile, is holdina
almost daily rehearsals to prepare
for on» of the most energetic productions ever attempted on the
campus.
*   YOU  CAN take then or leave them, stated Capt. John
Conway of his opinions of international affairs, at the
Thursday meeting of the International Relations Club in Arts
100.
Capt. Conway of the Seaforths
left UBC in 1935, and, returning
from overseas four months ago,
came back to the campus on
Thursday to give the students his
own reflections on "Political Divisions in Belgium, Greece, Italy
and Poland."
DEFENDS ALLIED ACTION
He disagrees violently with two
charges popular today, "first, that
the Allied governments are supporting reactionary governments
in Belgium, Greece and Italy, and
second, that the British government, and Mr. Churchill in particular, Is persuing imperialistic
and power politics."
Speaking of Belgium, Capt. Conway reviewed the present situation and declared that "it is wrong
to assume that any party, in this
case the extreme left-wing, has
any right to arrogate to Itself the
supposition that it adequately represents the people. Our policy of
restoring the duly elected government was right and justified."
ALLIES JUSTIFIED
Since the Allies are still fighting in Italy, a defeated enemy nation, Capt. Conway feels the Allies are quite justified in making
their demands. "For the existing
government must have implicit
faith in the Mediterranean Command to ensure a successful working team."
"The charges that the Allies are
opposing the people of Greece and
are playing power politics in the
Mediterranean are preposterous,"
continued Capt. Conway. "It was
agreed before the Allies entered
Athens that the government of
King George, the only possible
constitutional one, would have the
support of all parties. And then
the left wing ELAS forces turned
around and attacked us wtth the
arms with which we had provided
them."
RESENT LUBLIN GOVERNMENT
"In Poland the situation is
fraught with a great deal of danger and distrust." He maintains
that "the Polish forces have always been complete supporters of
the exiled government and that
they resent the sympathy and support accorded the Lublin government."
As an example of a protagonist
of power politics, Capt. Conway
used Russia who "through the
Lublin government has given
voice to Poland's demands for territorial compensation, the main
question of the war, the question
which Churchill and Roosevelt
and Stalin are even now meeting
to decide upon.
"Russia is going to emerge as
possibly the greatest nation in the
world and all the 'decadent dsrno-
cracies' will have for opposition
is the unity of our people, which
is sadly lacking even now."
Capt. Conway concluded by saying that "if the post-war world
finds a foreign policy in Europe
supported by a bemused public
opinion in Britain and North America, we have lost the war."

Impressionistic
Art Featured in
Library Display
• ARTISTIC  impressions drawn
while  listening  to   music   are
shown in next week's Library Display.
Convelescents in an Art Group
at Gordon Head made these drawings while listening to records
loaned from the University Extension department.
A drawing entitled "Blue Danube" is a series of swirls and loops
reminiscent of ocean waves. By
way of contrast "Bach Brandenburg Concerto" is a study In geometric design composed of triangles and harsh lines.
Several other drawings will also
appear in the display, according
to Miss Smith who is arranging
the .display.
Coffee Drinkers

• STUDENTS  will   be   charged
seven cents for coffee during
the week February 26 to March S.
The extra cent will be given to
the International Student Service
Drive  fund.
The quota has been set for $3000,
or $1 per student. Tags will be
sold whioh will specify that the
buyer has donated $1.
Disciplinarian Group
Starts Revision
Plans Discussions
* DISCIPLINE committee plans are again being discussed.
Alan Ainsworth, Dick Bibbs, Barbara Greene and Les
Raphael at a meeting Thursday noon, re-opened discussion
on the plans, which when decided upon, will be presented to
Student Council for approval.
Although nothing definite was
decided, it was felt by all members that Student Council must
have more representation on the
committee.
As it stood before it was disbanded, the Discipline Committee
was composed of the presidents ot
the four undergraduate societies,
with the president of MUS as
chairman.
However, it was felt by several
members of council that, although
effective in most matters, this
committee would be likely to be
prejudiced when it came to the
matter of inter-faculty problems.
The student council members,
on the other hand, representing
the student body as a whole,
would be much less prejudiced,
stated Les Raphael.
It was suggested that the council members on the committee be
the presidents of WUS, MUS, MA
D and LSE.
The members disagreed on who
should be chairman of the committee, however.
Lea Raphael said that the duties
of the committee were not policing the campus, but were of a
judiciary nature. Thus, with the
president of students' council
as chairman the committee would
have more dignity.
Allan Ainsworth pointed out
that if a student was dissatisfied
with the decisions of the Discipline Committee, they could appeal
to the students' council. Thus, if
the president was included ln the
Discipline Committee, he would be
forced to serve on both committees.
It was suggested at first some
formal rules of offences and punishment be drawn up; however,
the members decided that this
would be impractical.
As Les Raphael pointed out, offences and their seriousness would
change from year to year and
their punishments with them.
Thus the AMS would soon have a
library of law to rival the one
downtown.
The members will meet again to
complete plans for the new Discipline Committee before they
present them formally to the students' council.
Scienceman Takes
Childs Motorcycle
• O Where, O where, has my
motorcycle gone. This is the cry
of a small eight yetur old boy, who
had his motorcycle taken after the
Science Ball.
In this day and age of rubber
shortages, this treasured posses7
sion cannot be replaced. It was
lent to Science '48 for their table
decorations, and has not been seen
since the Home Waltz.
Will the souvenir hunter who
took this toy motorcycle and sidecar from the Science '48 table,
please return It to EUS president
Doc Morton, Ron Grantham, or to
the AMS office.
Victoria College
May Be Student
Council Model
• SYSTEM of divided responsibility  of  Student
Council members at Victoria
College was outlined to the
Student Government Revision Board by Don Holmes,
past-president o f Victoria
College yesterday.
Members of the Board, set up to
investigate and report on possible
representation changes of Council, expressed the need for more
co-ordination of social functions
on the campus. Victoria's system
of divided responsibility had remedied this situation there, Holms
said, and had also taken much of
the burden of routine and specialized work off the shoulders of
Council members.
Victoria's council set-up, whioh
waa devised by Holms, divides
student activities into departments,
each department with a director
responsible for his group's activities.
Activities are divided into Publications and Publicity, Social
Functions, Literary and Scientific,
Men's and Women's Athletics, and
a War Military Training Department.
Directors of each department are
In charger of their own department's activities and sit with an
executive on Student CouncU.
The Board will sit again at noon
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of
next week.

Today on the World's Battlefronts
THE WESTERN FRONT
• CANADIAN 1st  Army  troops
have pushed through the first
belt of the West Wall and swept
up the lower arm of the Rhine
River. Tne Canadians scored a
gain of five miles and toppled at
least 14 towns during the first 24
hours of its new offensive. Heavy
artillery smashed German strong-
points as the Canadians advanced
through thick mud to make their
first penetration of the Reich.
Further down along the flaming
western front, the American 3rd
Army scored a great triumph by
hammering across t h e Pruem
River. The Americans severed a
main highway linking the southern end of the Rhineland with
Cologne and Duren.
THE EASTERN FRONT
• GERMAN    reports   from    the
Eastern Front say a great new
Soviet offensive against the Lower
Silseian capital city of Breslau
has begun. This city is already
about two-thirds encircled and the
Red Army is said to be putting the
chief manufacturing centre of the
eastern Reich into a pincers.
Enemy reports indicate that the
closing jaws are only 39 miles
apart.
On the shortest road to Berlin,
Moscow dispatches confirm that the
1st White Russian Army has won
bridgeheads on the west bank of
the Oder and that the massive
battle for Frankfurt and its twin
bastion of Kuestrin tage unabated.
Moscow says that Russian reinforcements are being poured into
the bridgeheads 31 to 43 miles east
of Berlin and that the 1st White
Russian Army is building up for
a frontal breakthrough to the German capital.
Farther north the Soviet assault
forces have advanced to within 29
miles southeast of the great Baltic
port of Stettin. In East Prussia,
another Baltic port, Elbing, which
lies 31 miles southeast of Danzig,
has been encircled, despite a naval
bombardment from German warships.
THE  PACIFIC  FRONT
• TWO AMERICAN divisions
are battling through the streets
of south Manila against Japanese
units making a last ditch stand.
The fighting is officially described
as of the fiercest nature. But observers believe that the resistance
of the remaining Japanese in South
Manila will be ended within a few
days.
Treasurer Nominees  Speak Monday  at  Noon EDITORIAL PAGE
THE UBYSSEY
FEBRUARY 10,194S
Peace Time Training
Early last fall The Ubyssey debated in
its editorial columns the question of compulsory military training in peace time. Then
there were slight rumblings issuing from
below the border on "universal service"
while Canada politely ignored the topic. But
now, a few months later, the American
rumblings have become a loud roar, and
Canada begins to rumble. Official Canada
has broached the question and waits for
public opinion. At UBC, the topic is under
discreet investigation.
The Queen's Journal and the Toronto
Varsity, two members of the Canadian University Press, have expressed opposite opinions on the subject. The Journal is for compulsory peace time training. The Varsity is
against the scheme.
The choice is between two evils. Everyone of us rejects the dogma of militarism,
but the majority of people now accept the
fact that armed force will be necessary to
maintain peace. It is just another human
paradox. We must choose the most effective
type of force.
In our opinion, we have two alternatives
of force: an international police army composed of professional armies from each nation; or independent reserve armies and
standing armies maintained by the world's
powers for their security. The second alternative may or may not entail an international security organization. The first demands one.
These two alternatives are what we consider the two most important of five theories
for the maintenance of peace. We have dismissed world disarmament, dominance of
the world by power alliance and "world
union" of all nations. Disarmament did not
work after 1918. Power alliance has not
worked since the beginning of time. World
union must wait for another furl in the
brain of man.
We must either band together in an international organization with a police force
pledged to maintain peace or withdraw into
our own borders and arm ourselves to the
teeth so that no nation would dare to attack
us. With our second alternative we would
need military training to build a vast reserve
army to use in emergencies. We would need
a huge standing army, navy and air force.
The international police force scheme
would require that each nation maintain
only a small professional army, which—
pooled with the armies of other nations—
would provide a great army devoted to the
cause of peace. Compulsory military training would not be necessary under this
scheme.
We believe that the maintenance of
large reserve and standing armies would do
more harm to peace than good. The keynote of the future is co-operation. Military
co-operation should be a part of the international harmony we hope for after this war.
No Contribution too Small
Very soon now the ISS appeal will be
made to the student body. What this appeal
gains year by year through familiarity it can
easily lose for the same reason. The first
appeal had the charm of novelty about it,
but the barrier of complete ignorance in its
way. The next appeal was based on knowledge and the result was better. Now the
appeal needs to be better still in every Canadian university, and we At McMaster must
beware lest our knowledge of the vast need
make our small contribution seem futile.
Actually no contribution is futile, and there
is no giving that brings so much encouragement to recipients as that which comes from
people of like outlook with those in need.
Students in distress deserve the help of
students in comparative affluence. We know
little either of real poverty or of superfluous
wealth here at McMaster. We all have a
fair margin of subsistence, and can all make
a reasonable sacrifice for students in prison
camps, in devastated areas and in exile.
Of course, the appeal will mean little if
we refuse to read about it. Once the picture
is complete, including ruined universities,
destroyed libraries, persecuted professors
and scattered students, interest and anger
should rise together. The few hundred dollars that we set as our objective will do
little to solve the total problem, but the fact
of our giving will make the problem real to
all of us.,
There is an element of self-respect connected with the appeal. We must not let
McMaster's good name be compromised by
our indifference or our persimony. Everyone in his student days should learn certain
lessons in generosity. It is better to learn
them early. Here is one ready-made lesson
close at hand.
—THE SILHOUETTE.
• words
By DON STAINSBY
•   SOME  PEOPLE'S   lack  of  words   is
amazing.
Take, for instance, the character who
continually remarks, "I'm going down to the
Brock. Coming?" Now why, unless the poor
chap is illiterate, and being a Varsity student
he hardly could be, couldn't he say, once in
a while, "I'm on my way to the Brock, do
you want to come with me?" Or, to get
colloquial, "I'm beetling on down to the
Brock, how about you?"
Consistency gets decidedly boring.
When a chap says, "I've got to go" every
time he knows he must depart, why can't
he vary it once in a while with something
like "I've got to blow," or just "I have to
leave you now/' or anything different?
And then there is the fellow who can't
say anything but "good-bye", or the fellow
who repeatedly repeats, "so long". Why, in
Heaven's name, can't they vary their discourse with words like " 'Bye now", "be
seeing you", " 'bye for a while", or "till we
meet again"?
And when a certain type tells a story he
will always say, given the proper circumstances, "And then this fellow says to the
other fellow —". What's wrong with changing this monotonous theme to "And then the
first man says to the man with the lady on
his arm —-", or "This caused the first man
to tell the character "? There is no Jimit
to the possibilities, but it always seenjs to be
that the sort of person who tells these stories
is caught in a rut of wordlessness,, and is
therefore damned to eternal monotony.
Some continually say, "I walked", or "I
ran". What is wrong with, to name a few,
"I strolled", "I meandered", "I trotted", "I
rushed", "I whizzed", "I dashed", "I scurried", "I beetled", "I trucked on down", "I
paced", "I strode", "I went madly", "I took
my time", and so on and so forth?
That is another thing. Etcetera should
be banned from the English language. If a
person does not know any more of what he
is talking about, why give him an easy out
through the incorrect and unmeaning use
of this word? Why not make him come out
and admit he doesn't know any more? Even
without etcetera, if the plight is desperate,
one can get around a lack of knowledge just
by saying 'and so on'. But that's defeating
my own end. I guess I had better permit
etcetera to remain.
One more example: "says" or "asks":
Many different manners of expressing this
same thought occur in the English language,
and many come up commonly in writings.
How about added, announced, declared, demanded, queried, remarked, answered, held,
replied.retorted, shouted, smiled, snapped,
pleaded, observed, commented, interjected,
"etcetera"?
A last point: The more and varied words
one uses the less chance one has of plagiarizing. Think that over while I hunt up my
dictionary. "G'bye now."

•UBC's pitt
like forest
By HARRY CASTILLOU
• WHEN ASKED to describe our university one
usually gives a brief outline
of the buildings and adjoining fields on the campus.
However, few people realize that the timber surround-
'   ing the university buildings
and the forest tract leased at
Pitt Lake have an important
place in both present and
future university facilities.
The Pitt Lake Forest covers   an    area   approximately
three  times  larger than  the
whole ot our endowment lands
yet this MOO acres cost the university in rental but one dollar
a year.
Thla is made possible by the
governments recognition of the
need for an outdoor forest laboratory which may be used in the
practical instruction of forestry
students.
Some development on the Pitt
Lake area has been undertaken
during the two years the forest
has been leased to the university
and plans are now being made for
the extensive use of the tract by
forestry students.
When the area ls fully developed
students in engineering, botany,
and geology will also make use
of the timber lease for surveying
and other studies.
LIVING ACCOMMODATIONS
Plans for living accommodations, drafting rooms and other
facilities are being drawn up
and  a survey for  an access
road to the largest lake has already been completed.
During the past year several old
trails  and   railroad   grades  have
been opened up and now connecting trails are being started.
Certain research studies pertaining to sustained yield are now under way and will be enlarged on
greatly in the future.
The main Idea behind development of such a forest tract is to
supplement and explain classroom
lectures with actual practical forestry instruction.
SUMMER CAMP
In this respect it is expected that the forestry course will
soon Include a summer camp
or a term's training at Pitt
Lake.
During the junior years short
periods lasting from one to three
days at the forest will be part of
the curriculum. Here accessibility is an important factor and a
one hour drive is all that is necessary to reach the area.
NORTH OF HANEY
Situated four miles north of
the town of Haney this tract
Is one of the most representative of forest areas on our
mainland, containing practically all age classes of our principal forest species ln British
Columbia.
30 per cent of the area consists
of second growth ranging from 40
to 85 years of age, 20 per cent
young reproduction and about 20
per cent old growth timber from
100 to 300 years in age.
Thirty per cent of the timber
was logged about 14 years ago and
some of the land has reseeded but
a great deal must still be planted
artificially.
At present much of the field Instruction In forestry is carried on
at the campus forest. This consists of 230 acres of timber which
for the past 12 years has been
managed on a sustained yield basis.
4000 TREES PER YEAR
The university has its own
forest nursery which produces
approximately    4000    trees    a
year.   Revenue from the sale
of cordwood, fence posts, shingle bolts and saw lags amounts
to around S900 annually.
Sustained  yield  management of
our forests seems not far off and
the  first step towards this  must
be the training of technical foresters. In this respect the Pitt Lake
Forest Tract will help greatly in
the  complete education  of forestry students.

slaves?"
"Oh,   they  lived   in   a   terrible
manor".
JAZZ SOCIETY FEATURES
RECENT SMALL BAND JAZZ
By BRUCE LOWTHER
•   SMALL BAND jazz of the last few years was the feature
of the Jazz Society's record meeting Thursday noon in
the Double Committee room in the Brock.
The two main modern styles of
jazz, the New Orleans style and
the so-called New York style, were
discussed at the meeting. Records
were played alternately by Gordon
Harris, who championed the older
New Orleans music, and Ross
Stewart, who favored the more
modern New York style.
During his talk, Harris defined
the New Orleans jazz recorded ln
the last ten years as simply a continuation of the jazz played in the
1920's. The artists, he said, have
changed slightly over the years
but the feeling behind the style of
music ls still the same.
He gave as examples of the
southern style, "Bluln" the Blues"
by Muggsy Spanier, featuring
George Brunts, "Coal Black Shine"
by Sidney Beehet with J. C Hig-
ginbotham and Henry "Red" Allen, "Everybody Loves My Baby"
and "Comin' On With The Come
On" by the Mezz Mezzrow-Tom-
my Ladner combo, "Swing Is
Here"   by   the   Goodman-Krupa
combo, and "Coal Cart Blues" by
Louis Armstrong and Sidney
Beehet.
Stewart spoke on the difference
between the two styles. He said
that where the New Orleans style
featured both drive and spirit, the
New York style Included technique as well.
Examples of the New York style
were "Mop Mop" by a Coleman
Hawkins combo, "Uptown Cafe
Blues" by the Edmond HaU sextet, "Thru For The Night" by Cozy
Cole's all-stars, "The Sheik" by a
Goodman combo, and "Clambake
in B Flaf «w* "Cassanova's La-
ment" by the Capitol jazzmen featuring Jack Teagarden.
Roy Lowther, president of the

Players Accept
Federation Brief
On Reconstruction
• MEMBERS of the Players
Club have accepted a brief submitted by the Canadian Federation of Artists. This brief concerns the Cultural Aspects of Canadian Reconstruction which has
been presented to the Government
for acceptance.
The Federal Government has
been asked to set aside 110,000,000
dollars for the building of centres.
It is hoped, states the brief, that
these centres will raise the cultural prestige of Canada to the
European level.
State theatres and travelling '
plays will be ties that bind Canada
together in a national culture.
Buildings must be built, states the
brief, and this will help alleviate
the post war problem of unemployment.

SPECIAL TO THE UBYSSEY
• SCHENECTADY, N. Y„ Feb. 10—(UP)—What is believed to be the world's fastest merry-go-round—one that
swings a human guinea pig like a pail of water on the end
of a rope—is now helping Air Force pilots combat superhuman forces of gravity at high speeds or in violent aerial
maneuvers. ,«»»__—____-__--__»■.__«.
Developed by the Army Air Forces Materiel Command and with a
powerful motor and Intricate control system designed and built by
General Electric, the ingenious
machine, called a centrifuge, enables studies of how much strain
above or below th« normal forces of gravity a pilot can take
without losing consciousness. It
is now in use at the Aero-Medical
laboratory at Wright Field, Ohio.
While whirling the subject at 40
miles an hour, the machine tilts
him In such a position he is affected as If he were pulling out of
a steep dive at a speed in excess
of 500. At the same time delicate
instruments attached to him record his blood pressure, pulse and
respiration, and his reactions are
tested when he returns signals
flashed by an observer.
A movie camera show3 that at
high speeds blood drains from the
subject's face, his cheeks are sunken and he looks 20 years older. As
the force exerted multiplies the
force of gravity, the filer sees grey

The effects of centrifugal force
on pilots was tested by the Germans as early as 1934. First experiments were performed in this
country in 1936. And now that the
fruit of early research has made
possible the world's fastest merry-go-round, It is giving American pilots one more edge over the

the gospel
according to
LUKE MOYLS
• AT LAST, great steps are being taken towards the remodelling of the now out-moded system
of athletic administration on our
campus.
A meeting of
the special committee, which
Includes four
students and
two faculty
members, revealed the manifold faults of
the present constitution of the
MAA as the
members went
over letters
from universities all over the continent.
These letters were replies to a
well-organized poll conducted by
Oeorge Rush, head of the committee, to learn about the various
systems now in effect at other
North American colleges.
After completing a chart of all
three setups, the group compared
our own system with those of the
other universities.
It was then that the committee
realized the size of their job. Of
the colleges which replied in the
poll, only one has a financial system for sports as poorly organized
as our own.
For those who do not know anything about the inner workings of
our present setup, here lt is in
brief: For all athletic funds, the
MAD, after passing a bill, must
apply to Students' Council, who
in turn must also pass it before
the bill is granted. All gate receipts and profits from sports go
to the general AMS fund.
An example of the disadvantage
of the first part was produced
during the Christmas holidays when'
three basketball teams were suspended for not having paid their
entry fees.
And then there was the University of Oregon basketball series.
The MAD, the basketball players
and managers gave up much valuable time during exams in order
to make that a success, but they
didn't even have the pleasure of
seeing all their profits going into
sports. The gate receipts went
back to the general AMS fund.
It will be our pleasure to publicize this movement on this sports
page. It is our plan to give you
all the details. This column is
merely a preamble to what is to
come.
The importance of the project
is indicated in the fact that all
three of the candidates for treasurer of the AMS includes approval
of a revised sports system on the
campus in their platforms. Already
students are clamoring for speedier action.
If the plan goes through, we can
expect a much more efficient
sports program on this campus.
Maybe then we will be able to
compete with other universities
in the field of athletics.
HOOP SCANDAL
•   PLANS   CHANGES —
George Rush, hard-working prexy of the MAA, is
beginning to get results in
his drive for a revised constitution of the MAA.
George conducted a poll of
North American universities
last month, and now that replies are almost complete,
the special committee has
begun work on drawing up
a brief to present to the students.

• NEW YORK, Feb. 10-A New
York judge still is considering
a plea to quash the indictment
against two men who allegedly
bribed five Brooklyn College basketball players to throw a game.
In legal terms, Harvey Stemmer
and Henry Rosen are charged with
a conspiracy to cheat and defraud.
The victims would have been bettors on the game between Brooklyn and Akron College. The contest was cancelled when the players admitted they planned to
throw it.
Attorneys for the two men argue
that the facts set out in the indictment do not constitute a crime.
Judge Nathan Sobel has ordered
prosecuting and defense attorneys
to file briefs by tomorrow. He
promises to make a ruling during
the  week-end.
If the defendants' plea is denied
they'll go on trial Tuesday. If it
is upheld, the prosecution will appeal to a higher court.

• MONTREAL Canadiens hung
up another decisive victory
over the New York Rangers Thursday night, beating the Manhattans 9-4. The Canadien victory
cut the hopes of the New Yorkers,
who are fighting desperately to
overtake the fourth place Boston
Bruins.
Paced by their second string

count before the Rangers could
find the range. Gauthier picked
off three goals during the contest
while O'Connor and Hiller collected a goal and two assists respectively.
New York's Fred Hunt finally

at the four-minute mark of the
third period. After breaking their
zero count, the Rangers swarmed
in on the Montreal cage to beat'
Bill Durnan for three more goals.

losing four and drawing one.
Three of these losses have
been to Varsity.   This reveals
that   Varsity   is   now   much
stronger   than   their   student
rivals.    The   reason   is   that,
while UBC has been unable to
have their team at full strength
ever   since   Keith   MacDonald
was injured at the end of October,    Varsity    has    become
steadily stronger.
The  scoring leadership for  the
season  has  been  taken  over  by
Varsity's   brilliant   fullback,   Jim
Hughes. Jim leads the parade with
two   trys,   three   converts  and  a

period.
In the other contest, Lauries
drubbed the UBC Chiefs as they
doubled the count with a 34-17
score. The Chiefs also held
forth with their second string
but not so successfully as the
'Birds. The UBC quintet had
to do without Bruce Yorke,
Gerry Stevenson and Herb Capozzi who were missing from
the bench.
Higbies took a 12-10 lead in the
first quarter of the feature game,
but faded behind a 20-17 count at
the breather. Varsity increased
their margin by another basket
. in the third canto with a 25-20
score.
RYAN TIES SCORE
However, the Miltonmen began
to find their shooting eyes as the
flnal period opened, and half way
through, Danny Holden switched
the lead with a neat long shot.
The lead switched hands iwlce
more, and with five seconds left,
the Higbie crew were a point to
the good.
At this point, however, Ed
Ryan was fouled by Bob Burtwell. Referee Gummy Leach
awarded two free throws and
the stocky centre potted one
of them to knot the score, at
32-all.
Ryan led the Students on to victory in overtime as he sank two
setups, the second of which was
scored but a bare half minute from
the whistle to take the tilt.
Wednesday night's game finished
off the. regular Senior A season,
and the playoffs are slated to start
at King Ed Gym next Wednesday
night with Varsity and Higbies,
and Lauries and UBC clashing in
the semi-final tilts.
