British Secretary of State for Dominions Addresses
Students on Tuesday
Lieut.-Col. Amery, British Secretary of State for Dominion affairs, gave
an illuminating address to a large audience in the Auditorium on Tuesday
Boraing. "Co-operation" waa tne subject of his address. He pointed out to
ths students of British Columbia, the vast possibilities that lay before them
la ths field ot co-operation.
Colonel Amery showed how students who were now Investigators ln a
broad Hold, would gradually come to specialise ln a narrower field. They
would havo to choose from the existing order their abode, their patriotism,
aad tholr politics. Then, having
ohoson, lt was up to the Individual
to bo strong enough to make his be*
Uefs felt.
"Look forward," sa<d he, "realise
what is going to be, and make ad*
justments to suit." He showed that
the past bad its lesson to teach, but
our equipment should be made to fit
tho future rather than tho past. Great
changes have boon made, but greater
ohanges aro to oomo, and with an
accelerated velocity.
Tho speaker told of the unlmagtned
possibilities of Canada. The country
was still to bo made, its resources
wore yet to be developed, and its
population waa bound to grow. We,
of tho present time have not only
tits duty of filling our own nioao, but
also tbe privilege of taking a part
In shaping the destiny of Canada.
Canada is a young country ln a
young empire. The Imperial Conference last year marked the end of
one stage ln the British Empire, and
the beginning of another. It was the
oulmination of the growth of self*
government, and the birth of the tree-
willed co-operation among free in*
dividual nations. The new method
is freer and more elastic; perhaps it
will be more efficient. Thus the
British Empire Is setting an example
for nations to work together, and
yet not to lose their Individuality.
Colonel Amery went on to) tell how
the last century was an age ot nationalism, an age of small patriotic
selfishness against the outside world.
Mow a more comprehensive spirit is
fostered. He did not believe that a
sudden revolution from the old to the
new was possible, but that the spirit
of internationalism must come as a
gradual evolution. The British Empire, with its free independent cooperating nations is the beginning of
this Internattonllsm, and has higher
alms than for only pure economic
development or power. It alms for
a development of International goodwill, a spirit which will be good nol
only for ourselves but for the world
at largo.
Before the meeting adjourned,
President Kllnck stressed Colonel
Amery's statement that the time
would come for a narrowing of Interest, and he hoped lt would bring with
it a) deepening of conviction. "Colonel
Amery," said he, "has pointed out our
duty to our country, our empire, and
our world."
President Kllnck then Introduced
the Honorable Mr. Bostock, Chairman of the Senate of Canada, who
he hoped, would be able to deliver
an address here In the near future;
and Captain E. Brant, M.P., who accompanied Colonel    Amery

On Wednesday night the Varsity
natatorial stars, fresh from their near-
triumph In Victoria, stacked up
against the V. A. S. C. experts with
most disastrous results. With Gordie
Baker out of the diving with an Infected ear, and two others of their
highest hopes "turning up missing" at
the last minute, Varsity went down to
complete and entire defeat to the tune
of 88*42.
Varsity won only two events, snaring a flrst and a third tn the women's
60 yards back-stroke, and a flrst and
second In the women's 100 yards freestyle.
The women's relay race provided
the only thrill in a match that
was too one-sided to be interesting. Vancouver's flrst swimmer
held a slight lead, but Rettie Tingley,
Varsity's last hope, swam a splendid
race to cut the lead so fine that after
five minutes ot heated argument and
violent disagreement between the
judges, one of whom could not be
found, having apparently fallen Into
the tank, the race was given as a dead
In the 100 yards breast stroke, men,
Johnny Williams, Varsity skipper,
pushed Chuck Hills so hard that in
order to tako the event. Hills had to
cover the distance In eight seconds
less than he usually takes over that
Varsity felt the loss of Gordie Baker
very keenly In the diving division, for
the Vancouver club uncovered a distinct luminary in L. Llddlo, who will
make Gordie step to keep his place at
the top of tbe heap. Varsity dropped
this event rather badly, for J. Cummlngs was also among those not present, and the best Rrnlo Peden could
get was third place, although In the
opinion of at least one of tho judges,
and most of tho crowd, he should have
placed second. In the diving event
Deans, of Varsity, deserves a great
amount of credit for his sportsmanship. Although he had turned out only
for the plunge and had never done
any diving other than what was necessary to get into the water, he gallantly volunteered to dive for Varsity, ln
order to make up the necessary total
of entrants. His last two dives were
very creditable as they were dives
that he had never attempted previously.
On last night's display, Varsity
needs to train, and train hard, before
thetr next meet, if they expect to get
anywhere ln the league.
Detailed results of the events will
be found on Page 4.

It Is not to tako place until the following Friday, January 20, one week

Murphy and Orevllle Rowland will
meet the University of Saskatchewan
In the King Edward Auditorium.
These men aro resurrecting all the
dust covered tomes In thu Library lu
order to prove the affirmative of the
subject, "Resolved that economic Imperialism Is a perpetual menace to
internatloanl peace." Meanwhile Bill
Masterson and David Wodllnger are
engaged In the same pursuit as they
uphold the negative of the same resolution In Winnipeg.
Our away debaters have now fortified their already strong combination
by arguments guaranteed to produce
mental paralysis In their opponents.
Bill Masterson has taken an active Interest In debating since his entrance
into the University. He has participated in many inter-class contests and
last year he and Douglas Telford
humbled the University of Idaho on
that College's stamping ground at Missoula. He Is a witty, persuasive, and
smooth speaker.
David Wadllnger joined Arts '28 ln
his sophomore year. His first forensic
effort was made In last year's oratorical contest which he won by a very
sincere speach on Zionism. Although
this is his first international contest,
he has debated previously with considerable success. As a speaker he
combines stneerety and force to produce a convincing Impression. Varsity's chances to defeat Manitoba look
very bright.

On Saturday, Jan. 14th, the Varsity
first' soccer play St. Saviours at
Athletic Park. As this is the first
game in the O. B. Allan cup, Varsity
will be out to do their best to win.
Even although St. Saviours are close
to the top of the league Varsity
should give them a good game, for
the Blue and Gold put a splendid
fight against North Shore United, a
team equal in strength to St. Saviours.
Elmer Anderson will be In goal
and after his wonderful display
against North Shore United, groat
things may be expected from him.
Verne Wright will be out again at
full back, partnorod hy Don Allan,
one of the steadiest players on tho
toam, The half-back line will probably be composed of: Emery, Manning and Hpllsbury, all of whom have
been playing well. The forward lino
will consist of Duffell at outside
right, supported hy Doug. Partridge
ut Inside right Mel Unudjn will hold
the pivot position as usual while Al
Todd and Guy Waddington will compose the left wing.
The game will start at 2.15 p.m.
and as the receipts go to the Injured
players fund lt is expected that a
largo crowd will be present.
Varsity Ruggers Resume Their
Operations on Saturday
Training for Next McKechnie Cup Game will Commence
at Early Date
Bearing up very well under tbe results of the Cbrlstmss Exams Senior
Rugby will get away to a good start with two gamea ln the Tlsdall series
this Saturday. Arts will meet the Rowing Olub on the upper oval at 1.15,
while Science will take on the King Edward Old Boys in a fixture on tho
lower field at 3.16,
Contrary to the usual practice the Tlsdall series will not be run off in a
"knock out" arrangement as ln previous years but will be played ln the same
manner as the Miller Cup games, in which each team meets a league team
once, and/ that team winning most games takes the cup.
The Science Aggregation have it all doped out and figure to carry oft
the Tlsdall cup in the regular bowler hat mannor. The Arta team is still
trying to get used to the recent graduation.   In order to finish this cup race
the series will be run off before Feb.
Student Council
Holds Meetings
The Students' Council held Its flrst
meeting of the year in the Council
Chamber on Wednesday afternoon.
Bight members were present and
some plans for the future were out*
Among the more pressing business
were the financial items, and the
financial results ot the Victoria In*
vasion. Some checks were accepted,
and grants made to the various
athletic clubs. Miss Doris Wood received a vote ot congratulation for
the ability and economy she had
shown in managing the financial affairs of the Women's Athletics during
the Invasion.
Council decided to give Orevllle
Rowland twenty-five dollars as part
payment for damages done to a car
on Granville Street Bridge. Tho accident occurred as a result of defective steering gear ou a car to carry
the Idaho Debaters.
During the meeting Mrs. Murray's
letter was read, an extract of which
is published at the request of the
Council President.
Homecroft Crewe, Eng.,
Dear Mr. Brown:
1 shall be most grateful to you if
you will convey to the Alma Mater
Society of the University my deep
gratitude, to them nnd to you for their
most generous gift.
May I wish you all a very happy
Christmas and  New Year.
Ours, I may say, Is infinitely happier, owliur to your generosity and
Yours very sincerely,
Lesley Muriay.
The Vancouver Institute Is unofficially under the auspices of the University. Wlille the University was
still in Fairview weekly lectures were
always held in the Physics lecture
room. Since our coming to Point Grey
lt has seemed necessary to hold the
lectures down towa but still with the
unofficial co-operation of the University. Lectures are given every Friday
evening and the public la Invited to
attend.   No admission is charged.
Dr. Shrum's lecture on Friday evening of this week will be held at 8:15
ln the big Physics lecture room
(Sclenco 200) because It Is quite Impossible to transport the apparatus
and demonstrate the phenomena In
nny down town auditorium. The subject Is "Cold Light." A great many
of the spectacular modern phenomena
about which we road so much In tho
dally press will be shown. The lecture
should be of Intense Interest to any
Intelligent  person.
Tin- undergraduate members of the
nursing students held a tea on Thursday nl'lernoon Ht tho home of Miss
Flora McKechnie. Tea wns poured

K. Kills,
11,   when   the next McKechnie cup
game will be played.
PEE. 11th
This fixture will bring the Blue and
Qold face to face again with our old
traditional foe the Vancouver Rep.
Vancouver's supporters have it all
figured out that their pet aggregation
is going to win. We think differently,
but ln any case it promises to be tho
hardest game of the year. It Is
to be hoped that this college will
show some interest in tbe affair and
give the best team this institution
ever boasted of some kind of stimulus.
At a recent High School game it wag
remarked that the lower grade
scholars showed more enthusiasm,
spirit and pep than the whole Varsity.
At Brockton Point, 3 o'clock Saturday Mayo**-Taylor will pull forth tha
Iqcky pasteboard which Is to award
the Paige Coach, raffled ln connection with the Dalhousie series. The
winner may take the car away with
him and lt Is rumoured that Gunboat
Sparks has it all fixed, anyway ho
is so optomistlc that he is taking a
can of gas down to the oval. The
deficit on the Christmas games has
been greatly reduced and will probably be entirely obliterated by
Varsity Is again to have the opportunity of competing with the world's
best in the English code when the
crack New South Wales team reaches
here late In February. Perhaps more
brilliant than the Maoris, the
Waratahs have lost only three games
In their tour of the old country and
these by close Hcores against Scotland and England. There is no
reaaon why Varsity should not give
them a good run for their money.
An old country authority claims that
their forwards are equal to the
famous All-Blacks and that they play
a straight forward style ot game
similar to that of the New Zealanders.
The Waratahs, now touring the con*
tinent, will leave for Canada in about
two weeks and will travel across the
Dominion on their way south.
In the intermediate series the
Frosh will meet the Meralomas "B"
at 2.15 In Strathcona Park while
Varsity will take on Bx-King Oeorge
at 3.00 p.m. on our own oval. Partly
disorganized due to the winter
exodus and with no practice for about
six weeks it Is hard to surmise what
the results of these games will be.
Inte.r-Class Debates
Will Begin Very Soon
Tho men's lnter-class debates are
being organised: according to the
schedule drawn up In December. Arts
'30 will meet Arts '31 on January 18;
Arts '20 encounters Arts '28 on February 1, und Agriculture opposes Science
or Education on February 8.
Literary representatives must
choose their debaters for these contests Immediately, and draw up their
resolutions ks soon us possible. A list
of subjects Is being arranged by the
Literary    Society,
It Is expected that classes unable to
arrange the debates In time will be
obliged to defnult the contests, as
there must be no delay ln working out
the schedule. THE   UBYSSEY

Tho recent activities in athletics between Varsity tennis and other
organisations representing botli colleges and cities, deserve some
comment by virtue of their work in adding to the renown of the
University. In some respects athletics during the past few months
has made notable strides both in the number and importance of the
major contests in which the various clubs havo participated. More
of a like nature are yet in sight nnd will in all probability prove
quite as noteworthy as those that have already passed.
As we are at the present moment approximately at tho mid-way
point in the University year it is quite fitting that wo stop for a
moment and compare what has gone before with what is still to
come. The two main, events of the past term have been without
doubt the visit of Dalhousie, and the Rough-Riders series, the one
in English, the other in Canadian Rugby. The former, series may be
safely said to represent the Canadian Intercollegiate English Rugby
championship if not the Dominion championship over all; and regardless of the outcome, the very fact that such a series was played
and that our University was represented therein, speaks volumes tor
the condition of athletics here. It is a regrettable' fact that the support at the games was not sufficient to coven expenses but the situation is by no means aa bad as at flrst reported and should come- out
.all right in the end.
The same is true of the Canadian Rugby series for the championship of Western Canada in which Varsity boys participated. Regard-
tabs of the faot that they were beaten in both games, nevertheless
they achieved success in a matter of equal importance, that of
assisting materially to establish the University aa a sporting centre
of high calibre and undoubted prestige.
Not only in these two games but also in others less notable, has
progress also been shown. Chief among these was the recent. basket-
Mil game staged at Seattle between the Senior A boys and the
W#J»hlngton first string team. The improvement shown over last
year's games was indeed surprising, and by this game and the return one, to be staged here in the near future, friendly relations with
Washington will undoubtedly be strengthened.
Besides this game with Washington at least one other important
sporting event is in store for students in the coming term. This is
the. tussle with the world famous Waratahs, a game which is likely
to be remembered along with the Maori visit as one of the outstanding events of the sporting calendar in years. Other contests of im-
ejrtance that are in prospect include the swimming team's trip to
anff and possibly a trip of the Senior A Girls Basketball team to
Bdmonton. Track may be counted on to contribute one or two
intercollegiate meets. It is regrettable that the Western Canada
Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament had to be dropped from the list
of activities, but because of financial reasons it is probable
that such steps could not be taken under any consideration.
We have then reviewed the high lights of the past term in
athletics and the outstanding events that fire being planned for the
coming term. A mere glance wilt reveal the fuel, that this programme covers practically every branch of sport and so is proof of a
generally healthy condition in all major organizations concerned.
The main purpose of intercollegiate and inter-city association is to
establish ourselves in the minds of others and to promote more intimate associations, especially between colleges. The sporting programme of this year in the diversity and excellence of its work in
this line has succeeded admirably.
The number of failures among first, second and even third
year students this year leads us to reflect that there is something
wrong either with the standard of examinations or with the method
of preparing for them. While it is probably true that the standards
are being raised every year, this is not the sole reason for the large
number of Christmas graduates.
The real reason lies in the fact that very few students know
how td study properly. Almost without exception every student in
this University has the requisite ability to make a pass. It is a rare
student who cannot make fifty per cent, in any subject if his efforts
are turned in the right direction.
The first fault is cramming. We hesitate to mention a subject
whioh has received so much unfavourable comment. Procrastination, the universal human fault, seems to be the pet sin of college
students. The vague but confident hope that somehow one will be
able to do the whole year's work in tho last, two week^ leads ono
from one day of friendly idleness to the next.
Nor are extra-curricular activities to blame for cramming and
low standards. To be sure there is far too much emphasis placed
upon them, too much hero worship on the part of tho easily-swayed
mass of students of the "good follows," the versatile individual who
sacrifices his time, his studies and his marks in the glorious cause
of the Alma Mater and "college spirit" nnd (let it be remembered),
for his own glory.
There are many who hide behind this barricade of student activities, a will power insuffioient to do a decent amount of work. It is not
of these we are speaking. They know1 as well as we do that there is
no executive position, or no collection of executive positions whose
duties' are too exacting to prevent a little exertion of intelligence.
We are speaking of the general run of students who drift
consciously or unconsciously, till the last two frantic weeks of the
term. If those who do this could realize what a very little
effort it takes to keep up they would not allow their work to accumulate und reach impossible proportions at the end of the term.
All this of course has the contemptible familiarity of a worn
out garment and we realize with a sigh that it will be equally despised. However, it is none the less true for all that, and though it
may earn for us the epithet of a Pausanuis we will have our say.
It is very easy for students to keep a reasonable! check on their
work. Everyone realizes when he is slipping back. Though the
classes are very large every professor has a fairly accurate knowledge of the progress of his individual students. The intelligence
and effort required to keep one's work up to tho average standard
is not particularly great. If every student had tho will power to
exert himself even to this degree we would not havo the disgraceful
list of failures with which we aro now faced.
An Important nit'Oling of the executive of La Cnnadlonne will be held
Saturday noon. All membera please
endeavour to be present. Meet at the
Musical Society Notice Board.
All photographs for the "An-
nual" must bs taken Immediately

There are two ideas that pervade
the policy of this Sporting Goods
Store— quality (that is very important) and a real low price. You
cannot buy 1020 quality for
less, anywhere. This it putting it
rather bald and to the point, but
these are the facts all the same.

How They Got Their B.A.C.
THE B. A. O.'s.
Young B. A. C.'s, we weep to see
You fade away so soon,
As yet your Varsity career
Has not attained Its noon.
Stay, Btay,
And fifty more bucks pay.
The Spring
Exams, will not be long,
Then having flunked together, we
Will go with you along.
We have short time to waste as you.
We have as good a fling.
We've books and studies, rugby, chess,
And every doggoned thing.
We waste
Hours as you do, and taste
The joys
Of Idleness of brain:

This form has been specially made
for authors and muck writers whose
originality has given out. Realizing
the great difficulty such gentlemen
labor under, the Feature Department
has devised a mechanical method of
producing thrillers. The authors
have only to select their own words
and make up an original thriller that
will result In a check and royalties
amounting to about $5.37.
That night (evening time, when darkness fell, on the stroke of twelve) a
figure, form, apparltllon, professor),
stole from behind the shrubbery and
darted across the yard (Uth Ave., 12th
Ave., etc., street, river, campus). Slowly It crept (crawled, slouched, rolled,
staggered) towards the mansion (barn,
Arts Building, Library, beer-parlor).
In his hand was a dagger (revolver,
rifle, ranon, flask), Suddenly a shot
(bang, rl[i, pop, gurgle) was heard and
reverberated around the . . . place,
A scream (yell, grunt, howl, hie) rem
Ihe atmosphere   (air,  silence).
The next morning (time when darkness was not, Instant) the detectives
(Sherlock Holmes, sleuths, janitor,
librarian) came to the place of the
murder (dark deed, foul act, crime,
party) and with their keen wits Immediately solved the mystery.
A man (woman, dog, freshman) had
been shot (stabbed, choked, poisoned,
decapitated, maybe killed). Some one
had done It and the crime Investigator knew who,—for the doer of the
deed was otill upon the scene. It was
a suicide.

Once upon a time a man was bit,
and otherwise chewed upon, by a dog
suffering from rabies. The man's
friends advised him to undergo the
Pasteur treatment. But, as all good
advice Is treated, the man heeded It
not. One day our hero was seen making out a list of names. He was asked
If that was to be his will, to which he
replied:    "H 1, no, this is a list of
people I am going to bite If I go mad."

odd, others do not think of them at

To-day wasn't so bad, except for my
loot. It won't got over being stepped
on by that Guernsey for ages. It took
half the Aggie Bouncing Committee
and two obliging (!) Science men to
get her off.   And then they wero too
Monday, 12.
I vt'ouk' have finished only Dad called out, "Pigs!" and I had to go—
and feed Adelphie, poor thing. Next
week he goes off to Pat Burns'. It's
awful sad, but I daren't fuss. Besides, that's the worst of going home
I'or tho week-ends, I have to do all
the chores while the rest of the family
and Uncle Joe go to the movies—
these are my study periods,
Tuesday, 13.
I was Insulted to-day, and by an
Arts, too. He said I looked like the
sheep on the Ford garage's calendar
two years ago. If I'd not played chess
ln the Common Room I'd a said something, but lt was kind of on my conscience, and I refrained.
Wednesday, 14.
Our Aggie sweaters came to-day.
But I was scared to put mine on to go
out ln because several Arts might
grab lt and sell the pieces, If any.
Hesldes. our own Common Room needs
as much furniture as theirs. I suppose everyone thinks that Aggies are
used to wide open spaces, also to
cow barns, hence our lack of seating
accommodation and our strawy floors.
Thursday, 16.
We bounced some Arts to-day.
They got too fresh and called me a
hulking fish. I kept quiet but Tom
said Bob (Arts '31) had hair like wool
and we weren't going to have our
Rambotlillets insulted behind their
backs, so we bounced the Arts and
Tom, but let him in afterwards and
made him put clean straw down.
Friday, 16.
Poor Adelphie. I'm ashamed of the
tear-blots on this page. But by gosh
I'm not either! I know of a Science
man who yowled when he left his pet
dog, which also yowled. A duet. —

This editorial was published ln the

print it without comment, hoping that
our readers will see fit to express their
Generally speaking, the intersection-
al series ln which Dalhousle ruggers
met representative* British Columbia
teams, was something ot a auge flop,
and poor judgment was shown ln
bringing the Easterners here at this
season of the year.
There lo not s howling Interest In
English rugby, as was shown when
U. B, C. students refused to support
their own team In the first game. If
wo must bring a big squad of players
here, the money should be spent in
furthering star soccer clubs, or representative CANADIAN RUGBY teams,
and not spent on a comparatively
"lack of interest" snort.
Tho press gave the Eastern team a
big ballyhoo, but this was slashed considerably when the receipts and attendance at the flrst game were made
True, the sport has its select following in Vanoouver, but the Rugby
Union lost a cool 92,800 on the venture. Aggregate attendance for three
games was 8100 with gate receipts of
only 91478.
A mighty poor showing when an
Eastern team plays here.
Women's Senior "B"

Tbe Varsity "B" team is now leading their league having played so
far without losing a game, Had the
Y.W.CA. won, they would have tied
Varsity for flrst place, but Varsity is
now two games up on them.

Canadian Rugby Makes
Good Start
The Canadian Rugby Spring season
got away to an auspicious start when
one ot the best Spring squads of
recent years started practice ln the
cold grey dawn of Thursday morning.
Several of last fall's Intermediate's
were on hand and with some promising new men available, another
Provincial Championohlp may come
to U.B.C.
Of last fall's Intermediates Coleman, Hedreen, Flsh, Harrell and
Stanley are showing up well. Coleman and Hedroen are good prospects
for next year's Senior team. Now
men include Berto, Campbell, Dunlop,
Johnson and Ackerley, and other men
who have not had a chance to show
their talent as yet. Berto, Flsh and
Stanley are working for tho quarter
buck position, and Bailey Is casting
covetous eyes on the same place.
Laurence Robson, Ackerley und Campbell are training for halves, and Ed,
Johnson is showing good punting
talent. The line Is still an unknown
quautlty, though Peden, Hedreen
and Coleman will probably get places.
The Intermediate team Is entered
In the Lower Mainland League, and
there Is a possible playoff In store for
the Provincial Championship.
At the close of the "Big Four"
season Victor Odluiu was elected
Captain ot next year's team. He, with
other Seniors will attend the practice and perhaps help Dr. Burke and
Norm. Burley with the coaching.
There will be praotices on the
Varsity oval tor the Intermediate
team every morning. The men must
be on tbe field in strip at 7.45 a.m.
sharp. If enough men turn out there
will be a junior team formed.
Varsity Hockey Lose
to Ex-King George
On Tuesday night Varsity lost the
Intermediate Ice Hockey title to Ex-
King George; score 3-0. As Varsity
and Ex-King George are alone In the
Intermediate Hockey, the teams will
again meet ln the play-offs of their
league on January 20 and 21.
The Junior squad will play Meralomas at the Arena at 10 o'clock Friday
night, following the Senior game between Ex-KIng George and Towers.
The Juniors hare been showing good
Hockey and stand a pretty fair chance
of winning, tho last score with Meralomas being 6-2 In their favour. Victory on Friday night would place Varsity alongside of Monarchs ln the playoffs.

Lose to Seattle
Last Saturday the Men's Senior "A"
team journeyed to Seattle and instead
of taking part in the Invasion tangled
with the Washington flrst string
team at tbe college gym. This Is the
second year that this trip has been
mado and bids fair to be established
as a precedent.
Although the team was more or
less walked over In the last Ave
minutes the game on the whole was
fairly closely contested, and of the
three games that U.B.C. has played
with Washington this was the
closest oven though tho boys were
stacking up against Washington flrst
string men. With five minutes to
go with the soore at 33-22 the Seattle
college rushed on an entirely new
team, an these fresh men ran rings
around the tired locals and sank 12
points to U.B.C.'s lone counter, making the final count 45-23. Mayers was
high man for U.B.C with 10 points
and Snider for Washington with 9
points. Henderson also shone for
The team: Mayers (10), Butler
(4), Grant, Robinson (1), McEwan
(2), Henderson (3), McDonald, Paulson (2).
