book-reviews have already come in,
and it is believed that this year's
literary supplement will be in no
way inferior to the productions of
past years.
The last four-page supplement was
published thrae years ago. A single
sheet brought out in 1934 loused considerable Interest at the university

a more ambitious supplement has
been insistent. Prospective contributors are reminded that publication

Whistling snowballs, tinkling glfss,
and the tramp of marching feet accompanied tho year's first fall of
throwable snow. Ten windows went
west to the tune of twenty-five dollars caution money and several students narrowly escaped injury. Miss
Allison, stenographer in Mr. Lea's office, was rudely startled when her
window was broken by a stray snowball. Incidentally the criminal suffered a relapse of conscience and
went in to take his medicine.
Connie Baird received the remnants
of a window and three snowballs in
her lap, as sho listened to a psychology lecture in Applied Science 202.
Dr. Pilcher, who was discussing the

The students of the University have been exposed to infection from scarlet fever during the last week, according to
the University Medical authorities, which means that all students who have not yet had
scarlet fever are liable to come
down with it and should report
at once to the University Health
A man ln 1st Year Arts developed the infection on January 10th and failed to report
this condition at the time.
Any person therefore who has
been in contact with the student and who has not had scarlet fever previously will possibly come down with the disease within the next few days.
In this case, the student was
attending lectures at the University and thoroughly exposed
everyone that he encountered.
It is the duty therefore, of all
students to report to the Health
Service at once in oider that
thty may be thoroughly examined. In this way we will be
able to avoid any epidemic outbreak on the Campus.
In the meantime any studettt
feeling in any way indisposed
is requested to remain at home
and inform the Health Service
over the telephone.

A lecturer whose addresses are eagerly awaited wherever he goes, an
author and writer of authoritive scientific works, a poet with a recognized position in literary circles, and a
biologist of world-wide reputation
will visit this University next week
in the person of Professor Julian Huxley.
The versatile English scientist and
man of letters is at present concluding
a six weeks' lecturing tour of the
United States. He will address a meeting to be held In the Auditorium on
Monday, January 21st, at 8:15 p.m.
He has chosen as his subject: "Science
and Social Need." Dr. McLean Fraser
will preside as chairman.
Educated at Eton and Balliol
Professor Huxley was educated at
Eton, where he was King's Scholar,
and at Balliol, where lie was Brak-
enbury Scholar. Between 1908 and
1910, he was Newdigatje Prizeman,
Naples Scholar, and Lecturer in Zoology at Balliol, thus revealing a rare
combination of literary and scientific ability.
In succeeding years, he Became research associate of the Rice Institute,
and for three years (1913-16) he was
assistant—professor of the Institute at
Houston, Tekas. During 1918, he was
a Staff Lieutenant attached to G.H.Q.
in Italy, and after the War he became a Fellow of New College and
Senior Demonstrator ln Zoology at
Oxford. Mr. Huxley .also took a leading part in the organization of the
Oxford University Expedition to Spitsbergen in 1921.
Visited East Africa
Since 1925 he has been, first professor, and later honorary lecturer,
of Zoology at King's College, London;
and from 1926 to 1929 he was President of the National Union of Scientific Workers, and also Fullerian Professor of Physiology in the Royal Institute. In 1929 he visited East Africa
in order to advise the Government
on Native Education.
Important Publications
Professor Huxley's more recent, and
perhaps  better  known,  publications
include: Essays of a Biologist (1923);
Essays in Popular Science (1926); Animal Biology (with J. t   S. Haldane,
1927);  Africa View

Views on New Campus Movement
By Donna Lucas
Phrateres is still too much of a mystery on the Campus
for approval or disapproval to be decided about it. It is aa
organization whose sole object is to bring a spirit of greater
unity and friendliness to the women of the Campus. There
seems to be some doubt, however, about its success. If it fulfills its aim it will be a great boon to the Campus. Otherwise H
will be just one more half-hearted "Club".
O Clare Brown, tho moving spirit ef
the organization, explains the vital
need for it on the camous. "It to,"
she said, "largely because we have
no residences that we are so scattered and so disunited, but as it to

Rep, had the same point of view—
for January 23 in Arts 103, the five
students on the provisional committee emphasize that they want representatives from every htudent body
to attend, whether the organizations
they represent ure in favor of the
movement or not.
In this way, it is felt, thc pros and
cons of the movement can be weighed
for the benefit of the student mass.
War and the future of students as
citizens are felt by many to be closely related.
The Anti-War movement on the
campus is non-partizan. It has no
political  affiliations.
A^wtpeeed manifesto has been
drawn up by the temporary committee, as follows:
"The supremacy of the developing
imperalist forces makes necessary the
inter-racial co-operation of students
against the warmakers of all countries. '
"In all parts of the world grave
doubts exist as to the chances of preserving peace. Disarmament conferences have failed with almost monotonous regularity, and the Washington Naval Treaty haa finally been

tlon that the menace of Imperalist
war is growing on all sides.
"To combat this menace the university students ln many countries
have already joined forces in protests
against the needless wasto of life and
property occasioned by war. Throughout thc United States organized student opinion against war grows daily.
In France, Cuba, Britain and Spain
the fight continues to unite the
schools and colleges in a mass resistance to war and to that form of cultural decadence which leads to apathy and finally to militarist dictatorship. This same movement must
be extended in Canada.

Any freshman who has received a fraternity bid today has a very important decision
to make between now and tomorrow. For if
he joins a fraternity he will find it the most
powerful influence affecting him during his
college career, whether it be for good or for
Hence he should not allow his decision to
be changed at the last minute by any sudden
high-pressure sales talk or other such momentary consideration. After his contact with the
fraternities during the rushing season and
what he has learned about them in that period, he should base his choice on these elements. The problem is too momentous to be
decided on any last-minute persuasion.
Snow is unusual in our fair city. When it
obligingly covers the campus we make the
most of it in our exuberant and somewhat
childish way. Snowmen and snow-forts take
us back to public-school days, and our little
battles are no doubt wholesome and invigorating, all in the spirit of good clean fun and
altogether a Good Thing. Ladies are courteously treated and professors are not molested. But even a good thing can go too far, The
fact that lectures were dismissed due to bombardments from outside reflects poorly on student spirit. A window or so is bound to be
broken in the excitement, but the wholsale
breakage in recent years is unnecessary. The
tinkle of broken glass is very pleasing and the
damages, when distributed over the student
body, do not amount to a great deal; but it is
unfair to break windows at the expense of
those who do not have the satisfaction of
breaking their own. If each individual were
personally assessed for his damages there is
no doubt that everyone would aim more carefully.
We haven't got over the New Year spirit
yet, when people pick superlatives in everything so this week we continue. We're making
a list of the ten people who should be most
ashamed of themselves, but probably aren't.
The first person on the list is Joan Crawford, and if she doesn't know why she should
be, well, she should be twice as much so.
The second is a composite of the million
(well dozen) sport reporters who insist on
saying that a prize fighter lay prone with his
chin to the stars. My friends, prone means
on one's tummy. Just try it some day as the
noospepper guys would have you.
That the third and fourth, too.
Fifth comes the man who shakes hands
with you New Year's as if you were his last
nickle, and with his diamond ring turned inwards. There's a man should be walked around
if encountered.
Sixth come the infinitive splitters who besiege one on land and sea and also in the air
(most especially) and probably under the
earth, too. Just wait till we get hanging participle conscious and the rest of you will go,
Seventh and eighth come Kathleen Norris
and- Alexander Woollcott for mooing and
whinnying with varying degrees of taste, I
leave it to you which varied, all over America's front pages for the Associated Press during the past fortnight anent a current kidnapping case.
That makes me ninth for reading it. Arthur wouldn't. I only read part of it, but I'm
plenty ashamed.
You can fill in the tenth for yourself. Better be careful, we're going to do this every
so often.
We note with interest the formation of an
"Anti-war Committee1' on the campus, for the)
trend of feeling in this line is most important
to the universities of today. The crusading
spirit which has always been a student attribute is a part of all such movements, and we
hope that it is not too large a part of this one.
If an appeal is made to the university as a
whole it would be well to bear in mind that
sincerity in upholding the aims of a group is
more important than enthusiasm for mere
Cod liver oil is a great influence in man's
life in more ways than one. Did you ever
take it?

you find you have to wash your hands after
every taking, if you want to approach forget-
fulness between doses. And on the bottle it

The first class election of Arts '38 takes
place today at noon. This is the occasion
which will indicate to the student body at large
thc class spirit of this year's freshman class,
and will determine its activities for the next
year. We would strongly recommend to the
freshmen that they turn out in full force today, both to have their own say in the election
of Ihe executive, and to show that executive
that, it has their whole-hearted support.
If you are observant and go to the library
conscientiously or otherwise, you may notice
two gargoyle like figures in stone over the
door. One is an old man with a long white
beard and a book. The other is a comely young
simious anthropoid (monkey, dope).
The first is labelled in Latin, and being
translated reads "Fundamentalist." The other
is also in Latin, and translates "Evolutionist."
One of the people without whom this feature could not be what it is, (Heaven help
him), investigated the reason for these. And
do you know why they are there? Neither does
anyone else.
The architect when approached explained
as best he could. When the library was almost
complete someone noticed that there was no
design over the main door, and felt the artistic
need of something.
At the same time the famous Scope trial
in the Bible belt was functioning. It seemed
of everlasting importance, and the observer
'felt the incident should be immortalized, so
up went the figures of the old man and the
monkey, opposing each other, as usual, and
there they remain to this day.
The moral is that if you feel something is
of ever-lasting importance, hesitate before you
carve it in stone or it may thrust itself on 175G
impressionable minds, and harry the intellect
of an enquiring reporter and an architect.
And it seems to make a monkey of the Evolutionists.

Garterless Sock Causes Trouble
It is rumoured that the Collegiate Sock has filed suit for
non-support against the delinquent Disorder of the Garter. The
Whole-proof committee of investigation has been set to work
to gather evidence and to straighten the coils in the recent hose

to not responsible for the drop in
socks. Men on the campus who go
about with ths leg apparel draping
their shoe tops almost to the point
of immodesty, claim it to the latest
wrinkle in socks But v/orking on
the rational theory that there must
be a cause the investigators have a
clue that the balloon t>pe of trousers might be to blame.
As this type of garment, which
piles up about the me.is feet, prevents the cold from entering and
supposedly shuts off thc vision of the
critical observer from the telescoped
sock, therefor it seems unnecessary
to employ the elastic apparatus which
some claim is detrimental to health.
Some say that this new elimination
has helped many a man to'make his

Needless to say everyone has noticed this epidemic of Sagging Socks
that has afflicted nearly every male
leg (Science mostly) on the campus,
and it has aroused no small alarm.

We have a public. Last week we announced that no one
reads the Muck Page, except the printer. This week we get
a letter of protest, from the printer, which all goes to prove that
we were right, and our only reader is—the printer.
As the Muck Page only concerns us and the printer we
thought we'd have a mutual admiration Muckatorial, and tell
you all about that unseen hand that every Monday and Thursday tucks the dear little Ubyssey in bed, unhonoured and unsung. Under the greasy press machines our Ubyssey printer
stands, his brow is wet with manly sweat, he's got printer's ink
on his hands. Half an em, half an em, half an em onward, into
the printer's office comes the six hundred (pub staff), oil to
the right of them, ink to the left of them. Swear words doth
thunder, their's not to reason why, their's but to do or die. Pity
the poor printer. The evil men do live after them, the good is
oft interred with their bones. So be it with the printer. The
noble Muck editor hath told you the printer hath no morals,
and the noble editor is very honourable. Last week we slammed
the printer, this week he slams us. In this land of habeas
corpus every person is entiled to defend himself; the following
is the printer's defence of himself and his morals.

Chaucer's Li/o
Chaucer was th<? son of a . . . vintner (fooled you). Through his father's Influence, he. got a position as
court page. Later ho went to the
wars, where lie was captured. King
Edward paid the tremendous sum of
IS pounds for his rensom. This
shows how unable even kings are to
read the futuiv.
Later, he received an appointment
to a clerkship. Soon, he received a
pension, and a ration of wine. A little later, he was allowed a tun of
wine a year. Hut near the turn of
the century, the king cut off his
wine so, in 1400, he died.

A Freshette enquired &> the library
if "The Red Boa'." was in.
"We haven't that book," she was
told. "Well it must be 'The Scarlet

No book with that title was listed
in the card catalogue, according to
the assistant.
"But I am sure you have the book,"
replied the Freshette, and drew from
her note-book a slip of paper on
which was written a title.
"Oh, I beg your pardon," she
blushed, "It's the "Rugby Yacht," by
a man named Omar."

On New Year's Eve, people are in
the habit of drinking toasts to anyone or anything that can be used
as an excuse. Here's a novel toast
that we picked out of the Manitobian.
A toast to the lovely:

pretty enough to look at, sweet faces,
and delicate hands, but somewhat
difficult to regulate when once set
What   does   avoirdupois
Antoinette — Well, I couldn't say
what it means in English, but in
French it Is, "Have soma 'peas."
They probably had as much trouble putting out a Muck page as we
have. Anyway, the followng excerpt,
entitled "Ain't it the Truth?" strikes
a responsive note:
Getting out a paper is no joke.
If we print jokes folks say we are
If we don't, we are too serious.
If we publish original matter, they
say we lack variety.
If we publish   things  from  other
papers, we are too lazy to write.
If we stay on the job, wu ought to
be rustling news.
If we are rustling news we are not
attending to business in our own
Getting Out a Paper is No Picnic.
Likely as not somebody will say we
got this from an exchange.
So we did.
A kiss to always a pronoun, because 'she' stands for it.
It is a conjunction because it connects.
It is singular because there to nothing else like it.
It is an interjection, at least it
sounds like one. 'Fashion note—don't
smack, it's passe.)
A kiss can be conjugated, but never
It is a preposition because it governs an objective "case."
And as a young lady once said,
"You may press a kjtos upon my lips,
but you must not publish it."
The above discrtion may be a bit
elementary to sophisticated seniors,
but we feel that the Frosh will always be glad of some help on a perplexing subject such as the why and
wherefor of the kiss.
The honeymoon may be said to be
over when he discovers that hia pet
lamb is just a bit bossy.
And so we conclude the "Inanouta"
for this week. Until next Tuesday,
don't forget that the reason women
are called "the fait of the earth" to
because they are always driving men
to drink.    Good night.

.   Leggat's Try Only Varsity Score
Varsity's English rugby team went down to defeat before
the crimson tide of the Victoria Reps. Yes, defeat, because
Victoria was the better team. The score, 4-3, belies this assertion, you say, but I disagree. The Red forward men had the
extra speed and drive that the Blue and Gold lacked, and this
coupledcoupled with the fact that Varsity had the lesser percentage of the ball from the tight scrums, had its result, a bad
one from Varsity's point of view, but one which Victoria de
The Capital City team kicked off
with a following wind and the added advantage of the slope. The ball,
going well back into Varsity territory, was got p.way to the threes and
after a concerted drive up the field
and some play in mid-field, Strat
Leggat, wing three-quarter, made our
first score with a try well out to the
side-line. Tha attempted converts
was unsuccessful. Again kicking off,
Victoria were able to keep Varsity
well within their twenty-five yard
line, and just twelve minutes after
the opening whistle, "Buzz" Brown
dropped a beautiful goal. From then
on Victoria prsesed us relentlessly.
Varsity Defence Holds
Kicking the ball high in the air,
which carried it down to our goal
line, they showed up Varsity's defence to advantage. Realizing thc
difficult position we were in, every
Varsity man brought out he best that
was in him. Despite the
repeated thrusts by the
opposing threes and forwards, they failed to
score. Why? Because
Varsity's defence is superlative. Shirley Grif-
Ltggat fin. at full-back, was
forced time and again to touch down
behind the goal line, and the resulting twenty-five line kicks made little headway egr.inst the prevailing
UB.C. Falls to Score
The second half told a different
story. This time it was Victoria who
had to defend, and this they did successfully. So successfully, in fact,
that they were able to make several
thrusts which threatened to materialize into scores. It was during this
half that several of the Blue and
Gold team made themselves conspicuous by their good play. Gross and
Morris were continually breaking
through from line-outs to make yardage gains, while Roxborough dummied his way brilliantly through the

Harry Robson, diminutive acrum half,

Bird, a freshman and wing three-
quarter, deputized at tho base of the
scrum, and turned in a v«ry creditable performance
Summing up the game, however, 1
think Victoria should have won by
a greater score, more like 17-9, than
4-3, but they failed to do this bo-
cause our defence never gave them
the opportunity, and we did not score
more points because there were times
when we failed to make more use of
our advantageous position in the second half of tho game.
The Senior B.
Hoopers Win
From Ex Brit.
With their 24-15 win over Ex-Britannia on Thursday the Senior B
cagers stepped into a two-way tie
for second place in the second division of their league.
The Thunderbirds opened the game
with a rush which netted them a substantial lead. They maintained this
throughout the game. Every player
contributed to the total, with Ridland and Patmore taking scoring honors with seven and six points respectively.
The team showed good combination
with Carmen Ridland working well
with Wilf Stokvis and Bill Patmore
on the forward line.
Scores: Ridland, 7, Patmore 6, Stokvis 2, Phillips 2, Hardwick 4, Machin
Lose to Fonts
In a practise game wit'.i Forst's Radio the Varsity team lost by three
points. In the first half the Thunderbirds showed a decided lack of Interest* in the proceedings, with the
result that they found themselves on
the wrong end of a 24-7 count at half
time. Varsity woke up after the
breather to .score eighteen straight
points, to make the final score 27-30.
The scoring was again fairly well distributed, with Miller, Patmore and
Stokvis getting the top counts. Ridland did not play.
Coach Dune Williams considers that
his team Is in good nhape to meet
Forst's and Telephones, the league
leaders, on an even basis.

Series Even
After going down before a Varsity
second overtime onslaught the previous evening 44-46, the College of
Puget Sound basketeers came back
with a vengeance Friday noon to walk
over the Thunderbirds to the tune of
a 36-20 score. Thus the two squads
stand on an even basis in games won
and lost in the four game series, although the Loggers have a slight advantage in points.
Cabbages For Bolton
The game was one of the most ragged and sloppily played this season.
This was probably due to the inefficient refereeing, The two regular
officials, Referees Paulding and Parrot, who were supposed to be out for
the occasion, failed to arrive until
fifteen minutes after the game was under way, and Freddy Bolton was chosen to do the honors single-handed,
and before the end of the game was
the object of the loud-voiced disapproval of the spectators. He called
only'three fouls in the course of a
very rough game.
Varsity opened the game with its
second string forwards, and held its
own for a short while ln the first
half mainly through the good defensive work of George Pringle. When
Bardsley and Willoughby took the
floor, however, the C.P.S. had a substantial lead, which they held until
the final whistle. The flashy style
of these two stars did not seem to
fit in with the slower style of the
rest of the Varsity team , and as a
result most of the scoring from then
on was done either by Bardsley, or
Willoughby or by long shot by Dick
Distinctive Attack
C.P.S. have a rather distinctive attacking system, which depends greatly on having a couple of eighty-inch
men on the floor. These players go up
and stand directly under the basket.
Their team mates take shots from
anyplace, and the standers-under-bas-
kets grab the rebounds and shove
them through the hoop.
The good work and accurate shooting of Smith and Stoffel proved dis-
asterous to the Collegian hopes, and
the uninspired play of the Varsity
team added to the ruin.
The teams and scores for the two
games were as follows:
C.P.S.-Tollefson 0, 8; Halfin3, 0;
Stoffel 14, 12; Smith 8, 12; Sandrigen
4, 2; Doersch 10, 2; Hatric 5,0; Milroy
and Wonders.
U.B.C.-Willoughby 12, 8; Swan 4,
2; Bardsley 12, 3; Wright 2, 4; Henderson 8, ; Pringle 8, 6; Ross 0, 2; Mansfield, Osborne,
Varsity May
Drop Inter
City League
Too Many Garnet
Varsity is in imminent danger of
being forced to drop out of the Inter
City Senior A basketball League, unless the league will stand by their
original agreement as to the number
of games to be played. The original
schedule was disrupted when McKenzie and Fraser dropped out of
the league last term. To fill up the
time it was decided to double the
number of games that each of the
remaining teems had to play.
1 Not satisfied with this arrangement,
Chuck Jones, of the Province team,
wants still more gamex Under his
plan Varsity would havo eleven more
league games, not counting the eight
Inter-Collegiate tilts, which come in
March, and also excluding any possible play-off games.
This would mean two and sometimes three games a week for the
Blue and Gold team, which to too
much to ask any squad to play, let
alone a bunch of would-be students,
who try to cram an hour or so of
study in each week.
"Faculty will not allow us to play
that many games," stated Jim Bardsley, cpatain of Ihe Senior A team,
"and our only alternative will be to
drop out of tho league if they insist
on lengthening the schedule i still
more. We agree to play eight more
league games, which is more than
the original agreement which we
signed last fall calls for; hut we can't
possibly play as many i>s eleven."
The league's decision is expected
soon on the matter.
Trim Dominion
Hoop Champs
Bardsley Tops Scoring List With 11 points
Led by Captain Bardsley, the Senior A hoopers returned to
their league encounters Saturday night with a smart victory
over Province, last year's Dominion champs, by the score of
35 to 32.
The Thunderbirds were a much improved squad after their
games with the American college teams and had the best of
the game from the first tip-off. They handled the ball well,
while Province were off their game to a considerable degree,
and relied on roughness to stop the fast breaking students.
Henderson opened the scoring and  ners but were unable to catch the
Women Hoopers
Lose Two Games
Varsity's Senior A Women's basketball team put ap a game fight on
Wednesday night in an attempt to
hold the champion Province quintette. They were badly outscored in
the first half, finding themselves on
the short end of a 31-8 score at half
time. However, in tho second half
they traded basket for basket with
the newsies, each scoring ten points
to leave the final count at 41-18.
Pat Lafon and Beth Evans were
high for the U.B.C. team with 6 and
4 points respectively. The rest of
the scores were: Thomas 2, V. Mellish 2, M. Mellish, Spencer, Haspel 2,
Parker, McMurchy 2.   Total—18.

Spencer's by a 25-16 scow. The score
at half time was 16-12 for Spencers,
and a determined rally en the part
of the Blue and Gold te&m failed to
overtake the merchant lasses. Mickey McMurchey with 5 points, was
high for Varsity, with Put Lofan and
Beth Evans right behind her with 4
points each. Jean Thomas scored the
only other basket for the Thunderbirds.
his team ran up a six to nothing lead
before Province even handled the
ball. They kept the lead till five
minutes were left to play in the first
half, when Purves put hto team in
the lead with three nice baskets.
Bardsley and Swan quickly retaliated and the half ended at 18 all. This
first period was extremely slow and
full of "dirt."
Second Half Faster
At the commencement of the second half the contest speeded up, the
newsies taking a good advantage with
pot shots by Helem and Macdonell.
Willoughby and Pringle kept the

Senior A's To
Meet V.A.C's
And Adanacs
Three-way Tie For
Second Slot
Varsity hoopsters are scheduled to
play two games tonight and tomorrow night, the former against V.A.C.
at the Varsity Gymnasium, and the
latter against he Ne.v Westminster
Adanacs in New Westminster.
The U.B.C. boys can go to the top
of the league if they take these two
fixtures. They now rest in a three
way tie for second place with V.A.C.
and Province, trailing the Adanac
by one game. Two wins will put
them ahead, and a loss to V. A. C.
with a win over the yellow-jackets
would  tie everything  up.
V.A.C. have been weakened lately
through the loss of Bus Haugh, high
scoring forward, who i' suffering
from a concussion incut red many
moons ago in an auto accident, but
have secured the services of Joe Ross
whose merit in senior company is as
yet untried. Bob Osborne will as
usual lead his Winged \ quintette
back into action after their Christmas
layoff and his boys are tiring to go.
Judging from their showing Saturday against the Dominion Champions,
however, Varsity's stars should be
able to somswhat dampen this enthusiasm.
No matter how tough V.A.C. proves
to be, Adanacs will ue tougher. In
spite of the fact that their showing
on their Christmas tour of the interior was lamentably weak, a full
strength Adannc team on its home
floor is always r, newly-wed's cookie
to swallow. Varsity hns (lone it once
already this year. In the second
league game of the sear-on th"y pot
a single point decision. The team
that geU the hrocks should win tomorrow.
Adanacs will present a slightly
changed lincun in this h ilf of the
schedule also. They have skmed two
ex-Mackenzio-Fraser stai\-\ Pit Bickerton n.d <?huck Holmes. Holmes'
style of play pai tieularlv will havo
to  be  watched by  the  Tlumdei birds.
Then our heroes put on a determined spurt with basket! by "Burp"
Willoughby and "Bugs" Bardsley.
Long John Purves was sent off for
four personals and right after Smith
was banished for tripping Willoughby who had been having a little feud
with the Province guard all evening.
Kennington was also sent off for an
intentional shove of Willoughby and
the red and yellow squad was weakened considerably.
Captain Bardsley took advantage of
the opportunity, tc sink a couple of
beauties from close in and followed
these up with two free throws to put
his mates ahead 33-30. Willoughby
also popped two free throws to match
>a basket by Helem and the game
ended 35-32 to give the Thunderbirds
their first victory over Province this
13 Free Throws
Province had about 13 free throws
given them and sank only three, probably owing to the fact that Bardsley
stood close to them while they were
shooting and whispered them out of
their points.
Bardsley was high scorer for the
students with 11, while John Purves
piled up 12 for Province.
In the preliminary Spencer's Qlrl
defeated the Coeds by the score of
25-16. Gillis piled up 13 points for
the salesladies.
