The Pep Club Is no more. MAMOOKS ls the new official name for
the former Pep Clubbers. To celebrate their new organization, a monster Varsity Potlatch ls being held
on February 33, in the Palomar Ballroom.
Fifteen hundred tickets will be
sold, at only 28 cents each, for the
affair. Proceeds for the danoe will
go to swell the coffers of the Union
Building Fund. This profit Is possible because of the generosity of
Mr. Hy Singer, owner and manager
of the Palomar, who is very kindly

of Dal Richards to the University
Bus Ryan, whose witty ad Ubbing
has been shown already in the Pep
Meets, will act as M.C. thus ensuring
a lively and wonderful time for all.
Decorations, ln the potlatch motif,
will sponsor striking novelties and,
streamers, according to Ken Shaw.
It is expected that the Potlatch
will provide a real Impetus to the
Union Building Fund, as the price
is within the reach of all. Tickets
will be on sale at the end o* this
week, at only 25 cents each. Outsiders will be charged 50 cents at the
At a meeting of the society, on
Monday noon, the club was completely reorganized on a highly competitive basis, following the system
suggested by the President, Ken
Shaw. Under this system, only those
really meriting promotion will get lt.
In the new Executive, Yell Leader
Is Ken Shaw; Secretary-Treasurer ls
Bob Klncade, and Master of Ceremonies, Bus Ryan. J. Allen Harris,
Professor of Analytical Chemistry, ls
Honorary President.
Increased interest is being shown
by the fraternities, seven of which
have representatives in the Mamooks.

Aggie Students . . . get the mothballs out of last summer's tattered
togs and prepare to enjoy yourselves
at the event of the year, the Aggie
Barn Dance, on February 17, at the

A hilarious time ls promised by Stan
Weston and Jack Campbell, who are
arranging   this   hayseed   frolic.
There will be modern music as well
as a little old-fashioned, and there
will be stunts and games and extra-
special refreshments for all. The only
condition Is that you come ln old
clothes, and that you come prepared
for fun.
P.S.: Artsmen will be able to get
a  few  tickets  this  week.

20th Annual Science Ball
Promises  to   Outshine
Former Science Successes
Wliy do tho eyes of an older Science professor mist a bit and
assume that far away look when he refers to the mighty men of
Ihe early Science "20's? "Why can he expound so freely upon the
merits of thoso wonder hoys? "They wore tlie best studenls
Varsity ever had,"—thoy didn't j*ivo a damn for any damn man,
ilioy were first class athletes, most of them played several major
sports as well as class lvalues,—oh yes- -they wore super, super
artsmen haters, and (hero it is folks) thoy were the originators of
the Soience Hall.
'Way back In 1920 the engineers
held their flrst Science Ball. It was
at Lester Court on Feb. 11, and the
boys were gracious enough to take a
few of the choicer Co-eds, originally
dated by artsmen who found lt Impossible to acquire tickets (for any
amount of filthy lucre). Patrons included President and Mrs. Kllnck
and Professor and Mrs. J. M. Turn-
bull (our own Rossland Jack). Dr.
C. O. swanson (now the wonder of
the geological department) was president of Sc. 21 and took an active
part In the arrangements for the
The second Science Ball in 1031
was graced with the presence of
fifteen Artsmen, but In 1022 the
Artsmen were bounced and the affair was a colossal success, even If
the music was supplied by a pipe
In 1923 the Student Campaign for,
a Point Grey Campus was In full
swing. The Engineers, displaying
their usual famous fighting form and
university spirit, came thru' with a
donation of $100, tho profit from a
Science Ball that was acclaimed the
No. 1 party of the year.
The following year the Idea of using a decoration theme was accepted,
and Lester Court was disguised as a
moonlight night ln June, with silver
stars hanging from above and a large
electrically lighted sign, called The
Moon of Many Faces, supplying the
In 1928 each department of Engineering was represented by an electric sign. In addition the word SCIENCE was displayed ln glass tubing
with punch flowing through it. Reliable sources report that the punch

Under the auspices of the National
Council of Education of Canada, the
Canadian Trio will be presented ln
the University Auditorium February
The members of this Trio are the
three Nelson sisters, Ida, Zara and
Anna.  They  are  accomplished  musicians,  both  in  solo  and  ensemble
work,   and   have   long   been   world
The    three    sisters    were    born    in
Winnipeg  during  the  war,  and spent
their childhood ln Canada. Inheriting
a musical tradition from their father
and  grandfather,   the   three  children
learned  to  play   their  Instruments  at
tho ages of four, six and seven. Their
father adapted  trios  to  their varying
technical capacities  thus  they  played
together   from   their   early   childhood
and  laid  the  foundation  for  the fine
ensemble   they   have   achieved   today.
So  great   was   her   Inherent   desire
for musical expression, that Zara, the
youngest,  learned   to  play  on  a  viola
converted Into  a   'cello at  the age  of
four.   Of   her   today   they   mark   her
remarkably  rich   and  searching   tone,
her   Interpretative,   full  spirit  as  well
as  technical grace and facility which
justifies   her   Inclusion   In   the  list   of
lhe   ten   greatest   soloists   now   before
the public.
Ida  was  given  her  first  violin  at
six and since then has studied under    Sascha    Lasserson    and    Miss
Ed'tha    Knocker.    In   spite   of   her
youth, her appealing tone, accuracy
of intonation,  and fresh expertness
at   her   instrument   reveal   that  she
is a  musician  to  her  fingertips.
Anna, the eldest and pianist of  the
group,   at   an   early   age,   learned   the
rudiments   of  music   from  her  father
and   she   has   ever  since  been   a   distinguished   member  of   the  Trio.   Her
rhythm   and   legato   nlmbleness   have
won  her  acclaim   from  the  critics.
The separate musicianship of this
group ls above question and because
of their unique upbringing they have
■solved the difficult, problem of ensemble.

We should like to extend to every
one in the University a cordial ln-
vitatlo nto attend. We can't do that.
We can extend that Invitation to
every Scienceman, and we know that
the Ball will be attended by every
Scienceman who can beg, borrow, or
otherwise obtain the price of a ticket.
This   leaves    only    a    very   limited
number   of   tickets   for   Artsmen   and
Aggies.   The   exact   number   will   depend on how  many  Sclencemen  can
find   the   elusive  three   bucks.   These
extra tickets will be on sale on Wednesday and Thursday, February  15th
and 16th, as previously announced.
Elsewhere   ln   this   Issue   you   may
read   of   previous   Science   Balls.   In
every  case  an  effort has  been  made
to  surpass   the  Ball  of   the  previous
year. These efforts  may  not all have
been successful,  but ln  the  course of
years  they  have raised  the standards
until   it   seems   almost   impossible   to
continue   to   make   each   one   better
than the last.
In preparing for this year's Science Ball we have realized this
seeming Impossibility — and put
forth every effort, until gradually
we have seen the Impossible becoming the probable, and out of
the chaos of preliminary preparation is emerging a Science Ball that
will surpass everything) that has
gone before.
Only   those   Sclencemen   who   have
been   working   on   this   project   can
realize   the   tremendous   efforts   that
have been put forth. Alfle Allen and
his   executive   have   given   up   nearly
every noon-hour for a month to work
on   programs   and   decorations.     The
results   reflect   the   enthusiasm    that
has   gone   to  bring   them   about.
This    Science    Ball    ls    expected    to
break   all   previous   records   ln   a   lot
of   ways.   Those   fortunate   enough   to
obtain  tickets will  see  something  entirely  new  In  decorations;   they'll  see
and  feel  the greatest revival of good
red   Science    Spirit     since     old   eggs
plastered   the  walls  of  Arts   100;   and
after  the Ball Is over—well—Science-
men   always   behave   like   gentlemen,
and     usually     take     their     partners
home   before  dawn.
Varied Careers
Of Engineering

"Abe" as he is more commonly
known to students $$d faculty, graduated from MoOill, in'08. Never
one to waste
time, he started
working on construction of O.
P. R. without
waiting for the
graduation ceremony. He spent
his younger years working for the
Dominion Oovernment as Dominion
Land Surveyor and Hydrographer,
and ln 1920 joined the Civil Engineering Department.
The Outdoor Olub had Abe as lte
flrst Hon. President. He even walked
up the hill every week-end to superintend construction of their first

Colonel Wilkin, as everyone knows,
is primarily a railroad man. That
worthy Godfather of Scienceman has
been so thoroughly Impregnated with
r ft 11 r oading
that it can't
help but leak
out at the
least provocation.
He graduated ln mining engineering     at
McGiil and turned westward to follow his profession. He soon became
involved in railroad work ln B.C. His
first work was In the mining camps
of Rossland, and later he joined tho
B.C. land survey. He left the survey
and started working for the C.P.R.
on construction, right-of-way, and
finally on location reconnaissance.
.He Is the man responsible for the
location of about 90 per cent, of the
Western C.P.R.. Including the difficult Coqulhalla, and Rocky Mountain pass routes.
He   tried   consulting   work   for   two
years   In   Rossland   and   one   ln   Vancouver,   but   finally   returned   to   the .
mote   profitable   railroad   work   with
the C.P.R.
At the outbreak of the war he went
overseas with the first contingent. He
left Canada ln 1914 as lieutenant ln
the machine gun corps. Two years
later he had risen to lieutenant-
commander. At the Somme the men
were mowed down so fast that he
rose six steps in three weeks. In May
1918 lie was transferred to tlie railway  troops.
After the war he returned to Canada and worked for the C.P.R. again.
In 1922 he joined the teaching staff
at U.B.C. as part time instructor, and
in 1925 was appointed to the permanent  staff.
Because of his many stories of the
early days of the Rossland mining
camp, Professor Turnbull Is familiarly known as 'Rossland Jack." After
graduating from McOlll University
in the dim and remote days of '97,
Mr. Turnbull proceeded to round out
his education the hard way. He .:<i-v-

At this time of the year all good Groundhogs nnd Sciencemen
crawl out of their respective burrows—the former to inspect their
shadows, the latter to have their annual flinK—the Science Ball.
Here, however tho analogy ends. The groundhogs have been sleeping all winter, the Sciencemen ... oh well  . .  .
This yar tho Redshirts have bestirred themselves n little earlier
than usual—why?-—to take over this issue of the Ubyssey. All day
yesterday, while flasks of weird chemicals bubbled over in deserted
labs, while draughting instruments rusted in dust covered desks,
hundreds of assorted Sciencemen swarmed into the peaceful precincts of the Pub Office, and began nmnhindling the typewriters,
getting their beards into the glue pots and generally raising the
With high spirits and bright, well scrubbed faces they surged
into the Pub early yesterday morning and soon some were hunched
over the unfamiliar typewriters grinding out the doings of the
various organizations on the campus while others busied themselves fitting the elusive words of the Knglish language into the
numerous heads and decks (thoso things you sec over the stories).
As the day wore on and the novelty wore oft", the spirits of
the now subdued "Kngineors began to droop, but a pop talk by
ertswhile Editor Alfle Allen revived thein and soon—lo and behold
-—-the last bit of copy was finished.
Tlio future builders of civilization thou trouped gleefully
down to the local printory and here covered themselves with
assorted glory and printer's ink as thoy read proof, made up the
pages and performed the various other tasks necessary in getting
a paper out—while grim b\ft determined printers plowed hither
and yon through the crimson horde and managed to bring a little
order out of the chaos.
AT T.AST—the groat moment arrived—tho "pulling" of the
proofs of the completed pages. A hush fell over the assembled
multitude while the printers performed their mystic rites. As the
proofs came off and were held up to the crowd of now bleary-eyed
spectators, oven the fifth year netegenarians forgot their dignity
and a general cheer went up from the mob. SCI 10N't.'.'. HAD UONK

ln the interest of truth, however, it must bo reported that the
day was not without its minor mishaps. After the furore had died
down it was found that five Sciencemen had been injured. Throe
had dislocated their shoulders patting themselves on the back and
the other- two had been killed in the rush over to the (ieorgia to
recuperate  from the ordeal of the day.
Seriously though, this Science issue is being brought out to
acquaint ono and all with THK funotion of the year—the Science
Ball. The Engineers are promising not only to uphold the tradition
of former years but to throw a Ball that will put every previous
ono in the shade. So we'll be seein' you!

here's' a chance to take a crack at
somebody. That blighter from up

accent. That Clean-cut Youth with

Artsmen. And oh, lots of others.
Now the time has come. And what
have we to say about these people?
Nothing, because 1. It would take
too much time. 2. It would take too
much space. 3. Nobody cares what
wet think of them anyway.
What does one put ln a column
anyway? The Editor says we should
lampoon somebody or something. Or
did he just say we should lampoon
generally. What doea lampoon mean?
Nobody but a pubster would know
anyway. I hate these people ln the
pub. They are almost all Artsmen.
They hang around making remarks
about people's typing. People say
they drink. They do. They accept
complimentaries to parties and then
complain about them. And that
knowing air! That bragging about
the number of lectures they cut and
the high marks they get anyway!
Why don't they come right out and
say they're brain? No wonder some
of them grow up to be English Professors.
And now to lampoon (?) a few
Aggies. I know a miner who is an
Aggie und a streetcar conductor who

anything at all. Why are they Aggies? Well, you say, some day they
are going to be formers or gardeners or bug-hunters. No, you're wrong
again. The real reason is this: they
haven't the brains to be Sciencemen
and yet they aren't quite low enough
to be Artsmen.

to the younger crop of mining engineers the knowledge that will enable
them to enter the tough Held of mining perhaps a little better equipped
than the old-timers were.
Mr. Turnbull entered the mining
life of British Columbia at a time
when university graduates were looked upon as something a little bit
foreign, and entirely unnecessary to
mining. It ls due to the efforts of
such men as he that the university-

One of the big reasons for Professor Turnbull's popularity among his
students Is that away from the lecture-room he ls very much "one of
the boys."
We have no details of his life prior
to his graduation from McOill ln
Civil Engineering in 1908. He took
his M.Sc. the following year. He then
started work with the Halifax and
Eastern Railway, later moving to the
Canadian Pacific Railway. Deciding
that bridges were more his line he
became a Draughtsman for Waddell
<te Harrington, Kansas City. His next
move was as Erection Engineer for
the same company, working largely
ln British Columbia.
The Classroom then called him
and he became Head of the Department of Civil Engineering at Dalhousle University, Halifax, acting as
a Consulting Engineer in his spare
time. The University of Manitoba
was the next scene of his labours
where he was Head of the Department  of  Civil  Engineering.

"The Case Of The Wily
You can lead a Scienceman to
water, but . . . .
—Chop Suey p. 3 59 chp. viixx.
A pale yellow glow bobbled and
weaved over the shoudod quad, moving through the low-hanging mist
with a cjueer gurgling sound. On
nearlng the library, the glow disintegrated into two terribly Jaundiced
masks, more or less attached to the
bodies of Jack Stank and Ned Mag-
gotts, who we,,e slowly recovering
from a sea voyage.
The wavering rays, penetrating the
walls of the library, disclosed the
queenly figure of Melon Pann, shuffling on padded feet through the solemn labrylnths of the stacks. She
had Just reached shelf P-87, Sc. 40
when she tripped over a slip-stick,
murdered horribly at the hands of an
unltlated Artsman, while trying to
prove that two times three was not
6.07 repeater. Uurslng her toe meditatively, a maidenly curse escaped
her lips, but suddenly hope dawned
within her. "Ah! Sclencemen, at
last." She renewed her quest with
eager pantlngs as she realized that
nothing could Harm'er.
At the mention of the magic word
"Sciencemen," the mist slowly began
to clear from the Applied Science
Building, revealing one lone light
guttering from the Red-Sweated
Boys' paradise. Propped up around
a table were eight members of the
SMUT executive, reading by the rays
emanating from four light-headed
members of the Arts Faculty who
were chanting "Shine Little Glowworm" as they hung from the ceiling by their feet.
Peering over the  table-top,  Oaf

ohalr legs and screamed—-"Order 1

Interrupted    by  a muffled   squeak

Just as Porous Pepper, representing the Nertses, prepared to lend a
hand, there was a quivering and
shaking of the building, accompanied by a tumultuous roar, Mr.

As    Oaf   Allen     announced     the

In the hands of Porous Pepper, six
figures slithered out from between
the pages of the log-book, and with
a  deft  Interpolation  there  appeared  through  a blue fog  Chop  Suey
and Ave fluttering wlng-jlngs. With
a fiendish cackle, Chop caused the
floor   to   collapse   hurling    all   the

of   Cocoa-Cola,    and   not   even    a
straw to clutch.   Wrapping herself
In    a    haze    of    El-Stuffo,    Porous
headed for the nearest exit through
the  Geology  Lab.
A quick  application  of soda-water
revived     Hedgequlck,    and    with    a
screachlng of gears,  Chop-Chop  and
Hedgequlck gave  chase,  followed  by
the   five   fluttering   wlng-jlngs.     Entering the Oeology Lab., a quick flick
of   the  wrist  and   a    muttered    oath
were enough to change forty Palaeozoic fossils into Artsmen, ready for
the chase.    Out onto the quad went
Porous, with the cursing mob ln hot
pursuit.    Smirking ruefully, and with
malice   aforethought,   Porous   tossed
over her shoulder one of the few remaining     Science-Ball    tickets    and
chuckled    fiendishly    as    the   ticket
turned   Into  an   immobile   weed-pulling   gardener,   thus   causing  all    the
Artsmen to commit Harl-Karl.
With a gesture of despair, as she
saw Hedgequlck and Chop-chop
gaining on her, Poor Porous drew
out from her hip-pocket a glass container and let lt smash at the feet
of Mr. Hedgequlck, showing a pickled kidney. A cry of anguish escaped Hedgequlck's lips and he rolled
on the ground clasping the pickled
kidney to him and crying "Alas, my

Oh you Sciencemen!—.We've found just the thing for these
Arts-Science fights. It's at Red Phoam's—and it's the ultra-smart
crawl-down shirt-tail. It's guaranteed to keep crawling. And for
the Artsmen there arc the crawl-up trousers. Which reminds us of
Sophomore Sam, the Artsman, who was feeling very low, so he began
to crawl down the gutter—trying to get as low as he felt—lower
than anybody else—only he forgot it was the day after the Science
ball, and he couldn't get very low because the gutter was full of
Sciencemen just crawling up.
CO-EDS! Have you been asked to the Science Ball? If not don't
you think it's because you lack that certain something? And that
something is down at Mrs. Paton's Store for Things. Being of a shy
and retiring nature, we couldn't mention just what it is, but just go
down this very afternoon and buy one, or perhaps one and a spare one,
and go straight home and sit beside the telephone.

It is reported that a Second Year Artsman got so enthused with

Letters to the

The time has come when I must
ask you a question concerning a
question concerning a thing the contemplation of which has caused me
many sleepless night, with corresponding  days  of  anxiety.
This is the subject about which I
hesitate to speak to you until I am
positive of how I feel. Many happy
times have been broken up from this
same cause and yet I must know the
worst. I dare not oven communicate
my state of mind to my father of
whom I think a great deal; for he is
old-fashioned about these things and
I know there would be only one thing
he would advise me to do.
This will undoubtedly surprise you
very much, although I try to think
otherwise, but I feel you know me
better than any one else. I know I
am asking a great favour and while
you are considering this, I beg you
to put aside all sorts of Joys and for
a time devote all your consideration
to my question. I hate to ask you
this, but do you think it is time for
me to put my winter underwear on?
A worried Artsman.

my mind but no doubt ls a throwback to the Oolden Calf of Baal.

Another disrupting Influence Is the
formation of a hide-bound caste system outdoing even India. At the top
of this' caste system enthroned in a
sanctified aura all their own are the
Sclencemen. Par down the scale from
these are a quiet domesticated type,
the Aggies. At the very foot of the
ladder, and ranging slightly lower
than the animal life, comes a lowly
type, the Artsmen or untouchables.
Their existence ls brightened only by
the condescending glances of the Upper Strata. Still a fourth caste consists of the "Profs". Where they fit

most part they seem to have little or
no following.
Still another derogatory effect on
today's civilization is the unchecked
terrorism on the campus. A partially
successful attempt to bomb one of
the buildings and burn *lt to the
ground   has gone   unpunished.
In bringing these matters to your
attention I feel I am but doing my
duty as a law-abiding citizen, and
perhaps saving the youth of tomorrow from an awful fate. We must act
now to stamp out these evils.

that a Scienceman is a direct, throw-

Desperate 'Bird Hoopsters On Brink
Well.'folks, it's Just about time you
got the low-down on the big doings
in Maury's office every Monday noon,
the organization headquarters of the
intramural program.
When does lt start? Well, that's up
to Maury. The class reps are scattered around the room—lie on the
tables, sit ln the corners or Just lean
on the walls and yawn.
Suddenly Maury is on the alert. He
sits up rigidly ln his chair, extends
his left arm . . . It is the zero hour.
The Chief grabs his lunch off the
Instinctively the boys know what ls
up: the session is on.
."Well, there are no two ways about
it," Mr. Van Vllet firmly announoes.
"That rugby schedule starts off Tuesday noon, - and It will go rain or
shine I!° . . . unless the ground
-freezes I"
There  ls a low  walling  noise  In
the   distance;   It   gets   louder   and
shriller;   a   hurricane   maybe.   The
office    door   files   open    and   ln   It
comes.   .  .  .   Nope,   it's   Ward   de
Beck,   plodding   theolog.   rep.,   who
makes  a  dive  for the  empty desk
space,    kneels   on    the   floor,    and
briskly  writes  down   the  news  for
his fellow classmen.
Maury is unperturbed ... he calmly taps a hard boiled egg on his arm
chair, and continues with  the rugby
news.   Behold,   before   you   stop   for
breath,  the egg ls shelled.
"The flrst game Is between Arts '39
and Aggies. Every class that fields a
full team will get ten points and the
winning squad will chalk up twenty
. . . gulp. . . . About fifty points will
go to the champs, who will be named
in two weeks!"
Doug Taylor was snoring In the
corner, but was up with a leap when
he learned that he had to field a
team of 15 Aggies for the flrst game.
"Wednesday Anglicans will meet
Science '40," continued Maury. But
he never finished the sentence.
'Hurricane' De Beck was off ln a
flurry of papers, determined ta round
up his flock of meek little theologs
for  Wednesday's  battle.
"On Thursday Arts '42 play Science
'42 and. . . ." That's as far as Maury
The genial David Ritchie was all
for his Arts '41 class, and wanted to
know whether the Frosh could use
their regular league men. But lt seems
the super-frosh rugby team can use
but five of their stars, and those registered In Arts '41, must play for
"David's   Duds."
By    this    time    Maury    had    completely   devoured    his    hen's    fruit,   a
sure sign that the climax had passed.
"In the basketball, Science '42 plays
Science  '39,  and   .  .   ."
"Yeah," interrupted a tall science
rep., "what about this science brawl
on    Thursday?    Friday    noon    our
boys will need a siesta after the big
Maury   downed   his   last   quart   of
milk   and   everybody   knew  the  meeting   was   adjourned   automatically.
With tho slimmest ninthcmntic-nl chance of milking tho playoff's, Vnrsity Thunderbirds hnve beon sitting with crossed fingers
since   Saturday   after   dropping   their   crucial   league   game   with
Tookes by a 42-37 margin at theV.A.C. Gym.
Contrary to general opinion, the collegians still  have  a chance  to make
the playoffs If Munros lose their two
remaining games with Westerns and
Tookes.   The    Maurymen    have   tiffs
with    Westerns    and    Adanacs    outstanding,   and   the   due   of   victories
would bring them level with Munros
and necessitate a playoff for possession of third place.
Varsity flashed their best form ln
weeks during the flrst two periods of
the Saturday night engagement with
Tookes. Keeping ln front by virtue
of an ability to capitalize on the
breaks, and to stall off the Tookes'
offensive wtth a newly-fashioned
zone defense, the Collegians -were

The third quarter spelled defeat
fdr Van Vliet's proteges as Osborne
and Purves combined to sink 12
points without reply. For 10 minutes
the Blue and Qold team could do
nothing right, and during this time
saw their lead vanish and suddenly
become a 10 point deficit.
Even the rebound-snagging efforts
of Don Livingstone and the brilliant
shooting of Brud Matheson failed to
plug up the gap between hte teams
as Tookes stalled on every possible
Matheson ended up the evening as
top scorer for the students with 10
points and continued the dizzy pace
he has been hitting In recent games.
In a warm-up game on the campus
Friday afternoon, Thunderbirds defeated the late-arriving Seattle College quintette 40-36. In winning this
exhibition tilt. Maury Van Vliet's
ball-bouncers snapped a long streak
of losses und gave supporters hope
for  the  Saturday  game.
The smart-looking Seattle outfit
were behind all through as the collegians flashed an efficient defense
and Improved shooting ability. Brud
Matheson, hitting bis best -lip, led
the Varsity snipers with 15 points
almost all on long shots.
Rann Matthlaon was not ln uniform for the collegians and took
Maury Van Vliet's place on the
master-minding  bench.
Even the chllllwaek high school
girls proved top much for our Senior
B basketballers (reinforced by three
senior A players) and took the students 3Q-10 at the campus gym last
Friday night.       ,
The valley lasses stepped from cars
after a sixty-five mile drive through
the snow onto a floor twice «S large
as they are used to, and with but
two spares as opposed to the seven
co-ed substitutes, proceeded to overwhelm our girls on their home floor.
Quarter time score was a mere ^4-0
for   the  visitors.
Then Adie Collins, senior A player,
was injected Into the fray and by
scoring 10 points managed to keep
the students from complete disaster.
Mona Asselstone, another senior A'er,
tallied 4 points and Grace Cuthbert,
with 2 markers, was the lone member of the B team to break Into the
scoring column at all.

The student's forward line, let
loose on unsuspecting defenses,
proves practically Invincible because
of their fast, quick-passing attacks
that leave the opposing backs far

last Friday night in the campus gym
by    trouncing    a    classy    Chllllwaek
U.B.C. pucksters received their second setback at the hands of the
powerful Gonzagu quintette, on Friday night at the Forum, but the 2-0
score eked out by the be-decked
American entry was a far cry from
the 10-3 pasting administered to the
Blue and Gold on the last meeting of
the two clubs.
For one period the Bulldogs completely dominated the play with their
long rink-wlde passes working to
perfection and a bomb-proof defence wrecking tho best efforts of
the local boys. Both epemy counters
weie registered in the initial'period
as a result of their smooth combination, aided to a certain degree by
poor defensive work on Varsity's
The second period saw a much
different scene however as the Thunderbirds began to swoop hither and
yon over the polished surface, bewildering their faster and heavier
opponents by close checking and
never say die methods. Only on rare
occasions were the Gonzagans at all
dangerous and their breaks -were
easily handled by either the Varsity
defense or spectacular saves by goal-
er Ed Benson.
At the other end, McCool was turning aside the best efforts of the
smoothly working 'Bird forwards,
particularly the Gulguets, Gill, Frith,
and MacArthur. Varsity missed the
services of center Orme Dier and
Angle Frovenzano although both Jim
Ussher and Maurice Lambert turned
in fine porformances in relief roles.
The last canto was a repetition of
the second with the U.B.C. squad
holding the puck In the opposition's
territory most of tho tlmo, but lack
of finish and superb netmindlng held
held   the   'Birds   from   scoring.
A few breaks for the local lads
might easily have seen the final outcome reversed on the tally sheet although there was no doubt that the
Spokane team boasts a better-balanced  squad.
Varsity's next opposition will be
the Diimonl aggregation when tho
two teams tangle in playoff encounters, probably starting in New Westminster  Tuesday  night.

Varsity's crack skiers travelled to

In the slalom event Bob Kemp, star
Puget Sound man, flashed to a thrilling win over Varsity's own pick of

Scienceman,  by   a  mere   five seconds.
The janitor is disgusted! There
are far too many boy's gym baskets

These must be cheeked out Immediately,   so   don't   forget!
The Frosh uncovered the new pet
four-man box defense of Coach "By"
Straight and this proved the deciding factor in piling up a commanding lead of 23 to 7 at the half marker.
This, combined with the fine showing made by the second stringers
who successfully held this lead ln
the second canto, was sufficient to
delight the heart of any Coach.
Coach "By" was highly elated with
the teams' progress and shovdd they
remain at this peak, sees reason
enough to win the City championship from Shores.
To-night at. Y.W.CA. gym they
tackle Shores in tho flrst game of
a best-of-flve series for the League
and City championship. As the Frosh
are the only winning team of cagers
remaining o.i the campus, they
should have the whole-hearted support of everyone. Remember the
time,  to-night at 8:00;  and  the  place,
But it is the fullback line that the
real headaches are ln store for the
opposing players. Here Betty Cole
and Hortense Warne combine to
make the outstanding defense due of
the league. Marjorie Lean, expert
net-tender completes the team. These
girls represent the main hope of tho
co-eds for athletic laurels this year.
We predict they'll take the Lower
Mainland and Inter-city cups.
"Hello Maw! It waa a great flght, but we lost,"
And that Alphonse, If you would be good enough to^dlsregard the static
caused by a scienceman trying to work a typewriter with a slide-rule, ls
the chorus of Maury Van Vliet's gallant little short-trousered laddies of
the basketball floor calling their Alma Mater after the game on Saturday
The men who follow the bouncing ball for the honor and glory (or
should we say onus and worry?) of the blue and gold were not just pulling
a man-in-the-street gag either, because they put up a valiant struggle
against   overwhelming  odds   and   are   still   in   the   running   for  the   play-offs.
But fate in the guise of too many baskets for the opposition was against
the striving students, and now they are  nearly finished a long and arduous
campaign on the maple court.
And If you continue to talk that way about the boys, Al ole sock, I
will be forced to Inform you that they have shown no cause for the criticism
they have been subjected to the last couple of weeks. Not only did they have
one of the toughest schedules In history, but old man Ineligibility and his
partner  Crockery  kicked  the   team  around  a  bit.
It was bad enough losing Ted Pallas and Doug. Gross by the way of
all students, but when Alex Lucas was laid up for two weeks It was enough
to break the spirit of any team. But if you saw the Varsity flght In the
last quarter of that game Saturday, you are no doubt wondering why we
are trying to vindicate a team that never says quit, and needs vindication
in the eyes of only a few droops around the campus such as our man
We  would   like   to   know   though   (1)   why   Harvey   Rees   ls   not   playing
Senior A and  (2) why basketball players know more about running a sport
page   than   an   editor   does,   We   thought   that   would   keep   you   quiet   for   a
while  Alphonse.
Now if no one is looking we would like to hand our hockey team (yes
we have one, and a darn good one) a little bouquot. It takes plenty of
fight and courage to go out against a picked bunch of all-stars that outweigh you, outskate you and out-practlce you; to tackle a bunch of semi-
pros that are playing for their jobs (or athletic scholarships if yon wish
to be precise) and to hold them to a 2-0 win that la, as they say about the
Spanish War, no Indication of the play.
Anyway,   nice  goin'  gang and   let's  take those  Cubs.
And just In case somebody gets the Idea that we are becoming a lover
of mankind with all these drooling eulogies, we wish to state that we don't
like the lack of student support at Varsity games, the way the rugby
coaching is handled, the weather, sclencemen, professors, Mary Ann, Chang
Fooey. lack  of interest in  intramurals,  and  typewriters.
