SLEEPING GODDESS, Venus (Joan Powell) awoke just in time to find her godly throne being
born off stage by a party of players club technicians, at the final dress rehearsal last night.
UBC student, Ernie Perrault's play "Let Sleeping Gods Lie" will be one of four single-aet
plays due to open tomorrow night in the Players Club annual Fall Play presentation.

"A MACAROON, A MACAROON, I cannot live another instant without a macaroon," chirps Columbine (Lois Shaw)
mocking high society in a second play due to open tomorrow
night "Aria da Capo."
UBC Players' Pulses High
As 'First Night   Looms
It's called collegiate dramatics but for 150 members of the
UEK    layers' Club it will be strictly "big time" when they
plays  for  four nights starting
present  the annual Christmas
Curtain time is 8:30 p.m.
'!!.;.■ year's prog, am will include
a comedy by Aristophanes, n t''.'igi.-.-»
comedy by Ednei St. Vincent Mi!!av.
a drama by Materlinck, and a comedy
by UBC student Ernie Perrault. This
balanced program it i.s believed, will
give a well-rounded evening of entertainment.
This year, for the second time, one
of the Fall Plays haa been chosci.
to represent UBC at the Western
Universities   Drama   Festival.
The play chosen is Aria da Capo.
The east includes Lois Shaw, Phil
Ke.itle, Cal Whitehead, Jack Cairns,
and Ron Walmsley, all of whom hew:
major roles. The play was directed
by Joy Coghill, a graduate of las I
year, and the assistant director i.->
Ann  Forrester.
Of the other plays, "Lot Sleeping
Gods lie", by Ernie Perrault will be
the curtain raiser. It is a comedy
with an easy to take moral. The
action takes place on the mountainside of Mount Olympus, the home of
the   gods.
The leading role, that of the god
Jupiter, is taken by Bill Vellutini
with B'etty Peyman a.s his wife Juno,
The cast, is large, consisting of l.'i
people, and because of the hu.v
numbers, rehearsals for this play
were prone to deteriorate into parties
which oddly resembled fancy-dress
Second on the program is the drama
by Materlinck, "Miracle of Saint
Antony." The setting is a present-
day Canadian home just after the
death   of   the   mistress   of   the   house,

role of Saint Antony is taken by
Cyril Groves, with Daphne Hutche-

Last play to bc presented to complete the evening's performance is
"Women in Council", adapted from
the   Greek   of   Aristophanes.
It deals with disterous results
brought about as tlie result of the
election of women to the leadership
of the city government. Common
ownership of property, and the common ownership of husbands sets the
stage for tho hilarious burlesque that

UBC To Play Host
At Farmer School
A back to the farm movement will
be   started   in   January   when   UBC
plays host to young men and women from British Columbia's farms
during the third Rural Leadership
Training Course at Acadia Camp.

of rural life, and courses offered include carpentry, sewing, cooking, cooperatives, dramatics, public speaking,
and physical recreation.
About 115 young men and women
are expected to attend the course
sponsored by the Dominion Department of Labor in co-operation with

and the B.C. Department of Education,
Members of farm organizations and
of the university staff will give lectures and demonstrations.
Food btiortaae
Damps Spirits
At Fall Ball
Gate-crashers and last-minute arrivals at UBC's Fall Ball
cost more than 200 students
their supper Thursday night.
Food for 1200 persons had
been arranged with caterer
Frank Baker found 1600 hungry mouths to feed when supper
time came.
More than 300 couples, some of
them gate-crashers, arrived without
reservations, Baker said.
Baker stretched his cuisine into
1350 meals, but threw up his hands
at the famine that resulted when
unexpected couples began to pour
into the festooned Armory.
But 1600 students who crowded the
building for the largest dance ever
held on the campus declared the
"experiment" a resounding success.
Couples who tangoed in the gay,
Latin American setting of the ball
saw a bleak, parade square armory
magically transformed with bright
props and lush furnishings.
Highlight of the evening was the
rolicking farce of UBC's Radio Society, a take-off on manners south
of the Rio Grande.
Busses Shuttle Students
For First Time In Month
Operation of the two-mile University bus route was scheduled to swing quickly back to normal this morning as the
29-day strike of streetcar and bus employees came to an end.
Tlie "rule of thumb" was over for <s> ■
more than 9000 UBC students who had
been among the "highest and dryest"
of Vancouver residents during the
four-week  tie-up.
Red Charges Laid
On U of T Journal
Toronto, Ont. —17 Nov. — (CUP)—
Conflicting charges were forthcoming
at the University of Toronto last week
as Denyse Gassyt, Secretary of the
Publications Committee of "Campus",
a journal of student opinion, charged
its editor with using the paper to
express Comunist views.
Miss Gasyt said that the editor deliberately suppressed or modified
articles which contradicted the Communist Party line.
Her charges were corroborated by
an ex-member of the board, who
stated that he had tendered his resignation from the committe because he
felt that he could no longer give his
support to what amounted in many
cases to straight Communist propaganda.
The secretary said that the only
reason she did not resign from the
board was that she felt such a move
would be an admission of defeat. Instead, she published a four column
text of charges in the "Varsity" a-
gainst the "Campus" board.
With the resumption of service,
however, students found themselves
among the most fortunate commuters.
University busses were ready to roll
from the Point Grey barns early
this morning after careful nursing
throughout the walkout.
Other busses of the BCER's city
system fared less favorably, however,
in open air storage at Little Mountain. Although motors had been
warmed up daily, many busses would
be unable to resume operation for
some time,  company officials said.
Service was scheduled to begin
skeleton operation six to eight hours
after announcement of the return
to work, officials declared.
Nine UBC busses had been stored
in the covered Point Grey barns at
Tenth and Trimble. A company
statement said "decent" service would
be maintained Tuesday while work
crews attempted to clear switches and
fill in gaps in streetcar operation.
Some busoes, they said, were bound
to be crippled by the long tie-up
It is believed, however, that busses
used on the University line would
be in condition to resume almost normal service.
Some may be transferred to other
lines, the BCER said, since available
equipment will be spread over varl-
I ous lines.
Canadian Legion, Branch 72,
will hold a general meeting in the
main lounge of Brock Hall, Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Professor Geoffrey Andrew will
speak and a social evening is to
follow the meeting.
All members are request*! to
be   present.
BUP Editor
Likens Reds
To Nazis
Communism was likened to
Nazism by Robert Keyserlingk, managing editor of British United Press, in an address
to students Friday.
His talk was sponsored by the Newman Club, Catholic student organization on the campus.
Mr. Keyserlingk recounted that
Alfred Rosenberg, nazi philosopher,
had told him that the main difference
between National Socialism and Communism was in method and not In
This continent is an "oasis" of
freedom and liberty, the newsman
said, and the dominant fear in Europe
when the war started was that North
America would not hold up "the
torch of freedom which had been bequeathed by the old world".
The greatest triumph of communist
propaganda, he stated, was that it
had been able to camouflage the
philosophy that "man is nothing and
the whole is everything" in social
and political programs.

The Fall Ball has come and gone, and
from all appearances it was, in principle,
There were many who went home unhappy. They arrived to find their table reservations all out of joint, received no refreshments, could not hear the floor show, and
walked to the gates.
Tlie cause for most of the shortcomings
may be explained by that fact that this Ball,
the first to be held in the Armory, was
subject to organizational difficulties that
could not have been foreseen.
Too many people came without reservations to purchase their tickets at the door.
Next time, let's have it by reservation only,
and let's do something about the public address system.
Judging from the number of empty
bottles, not all of which were Canada Dry,
that were swept up in the Armory and park
ing lot Friday morning there must have been
some drinking.
This drinking must have been conducted
in a most discreet fashion, however, since
there were no arrests made by the discipline
committee members present to enforce
Article 11.
How hard they were looking and how
observant they were of council's direction to
prosecute in "cases of clear evidence of actual
drinking" we don't know.
'Die time has come, we feel, to consider
Article 11, a little more closely. We contend
that if the article is not to be enforced as set
out in the code it would be better amended
or rescinded. Any such move, however, could
arise only out of a general AMS meeting.
The next general AMS meeting is scheduled for March 18, 1948.
In any event the Armory has proved
itself. Cheers.
Test Cases
(The scene is se„ in the new wing of
the old library. Seven dirty old men and
four dirty old women dangle from the
girders by their tails. They are hanging
together. In the background assorted
kibitzers kibitz.)
"Shaddup, and cWk your beer," rasped
the big boss, Gift Deadwood, and another of
the irregular meetings of the Dirty Eleven
was underway.
The meeting had been called because the
Dirty Eleven, perenial guardians of campus
morals had been informed that the editorial
policy of the Weakly Bleat was endangering
the moral precepts as taught to the Redmen.
The Under Sexed Club, beginning to
feel its oats, jumped to the defences of the
Pansy Hotchkiss, UBC charlady, stroked
her long silky mustache and spoke:
"Goo," quoth she.
"Wassamatter, Baby?" asked Stuart Por-
rigepuss, looking up from his copy of Kitty
which he brought to read at all the meetings.
He liked Kitty ^because she had a record of
19 consecutive years attendance at Sunday
There was a piercing scream as Teddy
"Iron Lung" Sleeps caught the lascivious
glint in the Porrigepuss eye.
"My clubby wubby feels that the Weakly
Bleaty weaty is unfair to the Redmen and the
pre-marital relations clubby wubby," said
Pansy. "When the pee-emms had a meeting in
the darkroom last week the Bleaty weaty
only gave it an itty bitty six-inch headline—"
"That reminds me of a joke," Count
Yerbelli interjected.
"A communist plot," screamed Stupid
Chamberpot, who was passing by on the right
side of the right wing.
"If it cost money I'm against it," said
little Robbie Softwood.
"And not only that," Pansy drooled on,
"but the editors also promote cleavage."
"Hubba, hubba, whoop-de-do," roared
Bo Ragall, Stink Bomb and Count Yerbelli,
in unison.
"Dumb Dora" Clerk who up to this point
had looked like the middle man on a totem
pole as she twiddled her tail from a girder
changed her expression. She smirked. She
then looked like the low man on a totem pole.
Pansy explained herself. "The Weakly
Bleaty weaty goes so far as to print newsy
wewsy instead of saying nice things about
everybody all the time. Last week when the
Redmen burned down the Arts building—the
flames were so cute—the paper waper actually reported what happened. And what was
really   important   was   that   the   dear   little
Redmen had had such a nice party before
the fire, with favors for all the kiddies. The
little dears lit the awful fire just to have a
place to pop their corn. Reporting things like
that will make the Artsmen dislike the Engineers, and, goodness gracious, that would
never do."
As Pansy finished, a rumble of consternation swept the Dirty Eleven.
"Clear out the deadwood," screamed
Deadwood. As most of the Dirty Eleven started to swing down from their perches, he
screamed again. "Stop the chatter, you apes."
His quiet plea silenced the mob. All but
"Dumb Dora." She continued her rendition of
the second chorus of 'A Good Man Nowadays
Is Hard To Find'. Deadwood smiled, picked
up his revolver, the threat of which usually
kept the group quiet, aimed and fired.
The campus Tiddlywinks team (one win
in 15 seasons) formed a guard of honor at
'Dumb Dora's" funeral.
As the meeting resumed, Pansy's gaze
swept around the girders. With her eyes she
embraced the other members, swinging back
and forth in simian mischieviousness. Donald
Jerrimac smiled. It was the first time that he
had been embraced by a woman, even a
woman with a mustache.
"There is only one answer to letting the
little dears have what their little hearts desire," Pansy squalled. "The editors should
buy one of the precious little machines invented by Rob Ranthurns' boys for grinding
out editorials."
"That's a good idea," seconded Donald
Jerrimac. "They can put in a nickel and out
will come an editorial. The editors won't have
to think and the AMS will have more money
to spend on Redman parties. Not only that
but the machine-made editorials are said to
be in favor of everything."
Fergus Donaldson, chief copy-boy of The
Weakly Bleat, swung by his tail, up to the
front of the meeting. "Smashing!" said he,
with no malice, aforethought.
Something about the tone of this remark
aroused the retrogressive-progressive in
Deadwood. He fixed Donaldson with a baleful
glance. He then turned and nodded to Fairy
Mills who was lurking in the background.
Mills in turn clapped his hands and six members of the French Foreign Legion leaped
from their hiding places and carried the struggling Donaldson from the meeting place.
As he was born off Donaldson was heard
to shout, "Areopagetica, Areopagetica, where
art thou my Areopagetica?"
After a short consultation between Dead-
wood and Softwood the meeting was adjourned,
Dear Sir:
In my mind the fall ball, held
in that horrid, draft ridden Armouries, was a complete fizzle. I am
not alone in my convictions. In
fact, I am one of an irate eight
who were thoroughly mis-treated,
mis-lead and generally missed altogether.
To begin my complaint, I should
mention that the financial expenditure, plus valuable time during mid-terms, created quite a
problem. However, we arranged a
wonderful little party for eight
couples and placed reservations
with the proper authorities.
We even managed to solve the
transportation problem and all was
well with the world.
You can imagine our disappointment (I dare not quote my intense
feelings), when wc discovered thai
tho waiters had never heard of
"reservations". The story was thai
the whole list of reservations had
li.'. n mis-laid and we wore advised
to seal ourselves as best we could.
Unfortunately, for us. we had
arrived to late to find a suitable
tahle and were obliged to solo
into foursomes, scattered about
tlie armouries.
? T.v little foursome nonaged to
fin.'! tour aeats at the ; r\ if ;
loni; table and we settled down :o
an  evening of enjoyment.
We decidi d to dance on tlie
crowded, hard ccmeip f!<,>r <X
the dancing area and chan-ed to
meet a member of the student'-
council who assured us that if
we found tho head waiter, our
reservations could he traced. Highly elated, we rusher! heel; lo our
table with the elad news, but
.'■hock mimwr two—we had been
ejected from our table by claimants who h;id reserved the whole
of this long table, including our
end, and piled our coats in a heap
when they took over.
Luckily, for the head waiter, we
never did ferret him from his
hiding place, but other waiters
tokl  us the  same  story  as  before.
The queens were paraded, but
we never saw them, we were still
trying to find a table. Shock number three — no tables were left.
After a great deal of harangue and
a sizeable tip to one of the waiters,
a folding table was produced and
squeezed into a postage-stamp-size
space where everyone trampled
on us as they stampeded back and
forth to the dance floor. Wc had
purchased a table that was supposedly to have been reserved
when our tickets were procured,
but of course our table was unique,
in that it had no tablecloth, only
four teatowels stretched across it
and cups in place of glasses.
We managed to borrow a program-menu and decided our choice
would be chicken salad sandwich
or chicken sandwich. We chose the
latter, or the former, I have forgotten which, but shock number
four—no more food, or coffee, just
Ginger Ale or Coke, almost- mandatory that we have mixers for
the mixers.
Shock number five—we were to<\
far out of the city to attract attention from possible means of
trnsportation and had to thumb
a ride home. Have you tried walking a mile or so in a long evening
gown on a chilly morning about
3:00 a.m. I do not blame anyone
for not picking up a hitch-hiker
at that unearthly hour.
That affair was a waste of time,
a waste of money, at least I never
received my value, and I for one
shall not attend another function
of that sort unless it be held
downtown, or unless:
1. A system of reservations is
2. Enough food is prepared for
3. Extra busses be made available.
The only accomplishment (?)
was the restriction on liquor on
the campus were rendered as
farcical as anything could be. The
experiment failed, let us recognize
it and go back to the downtown

Dacre Defends Packing
Dear Sir:
In view of the treatment of the
U.N.A. elections in two recent
letters who both indulged in horse-
trading with the communists, I
feel that students deserve a better
picture of the 'packing' which took
place on Thursday. It is most re-
gretable that the elections shousd
have been user as a test of political
strength on the campus. The
methods used by a group arriving
late, even if indefensible, differ
only in form, from the parking
which the protesting group and
their communist co-partners re
sorted to. Those who came late
were club members and if they
had come at the same time as the
other blocs it would seem that Mr.
Bryce would not have considered
this packing, although it would
obviously have been evidence of a
highly organized plan. In my opinion it would still have been a
packed meeting and the mere
guise of 'coming individually'
would have been sheer hypro-
cracy. A cynical observer might
attribute this righteous anger to
the failure of one of the packing
groups to seize control. Was it
really a sudden individual inspiration which directed nearly all tlr
campus LLP members to beceri'o
UNA members en elect ii n day'.'

About von Schuschnigg
Dear Sir:
It is hoped that the following
facts about von Schuschnigg's
background will heln to provide
those students, attending his lecture, with an ability to more
correctly evaluated whatever message he may bring.
Herr von Schuschnigg's was Dol-
fuss' second in command when

1934. This was accomplished by

Plain Talk ..
A Day To Remember
We were sitting in the Fort Camp
cafeteria during the dinner hour, exchanging conversation and just about
ready to leave, when a tremendous
cheer from the direction of the
Stadium made us sit up and take
notice. I had heard cheering East, but
the Western cheering I heard was
something entirely different. It was
a shout of pure joy, which continued
"to come to us in an ever increasing
"Who's playing?" I asked.
"I don't know," one of the boys
said, "but it sure sounds as if we're
The cheering failed to subside, but
continued in regular waves of excitement, which compelled to action.
'Come on," I said. ''Let's get out
there and sec the game!"
There were others who felt ns I did,
and tlie movement out of the cafeteria
spread. Once outside, wc broke into
a run. From the Fort Camp huts, man
after man emerged to join the runners. Half-way across the parking
lot, we passed someone riming the
other way.

Wo ran faster, wondering at the
cheering which grew louder and

of the Administration Building.
Crowds of students were moving
quickly toward a nucleus of pushing,
cheering people.
I reached the scene of excitement

shout of pure joy, that I had card
from the Fort Camp cafeteria, swept
through me. I turned to the first

Ton Omega Installed As
UBCs Newest Fraternity
Amid ceremonial splendour, Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, the
latest addition to UBC's Greek
letter societies, was installed and
welcomed at Harrison Hot Spring?
Hotel Sunday.
Speaking at a luncheon banquet
held at the end of the installation,
Dr. L .Ranta, faculty representative of Inter-Fraternity Council,
brought the official greetings of
the University and welcomed the
new fraternity.
Also attending the luncheon was
the Hon, Gordon Wismer, attorney-
general, minister of labor, and
acting-minister of education who
welcomed the fraternity to B.C.
The local group has been petitioning the national fraternity for
3 charter which was granted this
fall by a unanimous vote of the
100 chapters in the United States.
It is the first local group of the
three new fraternities formed on
the campus since the war to receive
a charter with an international
The group installed during the
weekend and now known as Epsilon Pi Chapter of Alpha Tau
Omega fraternity, was known on
the campus as the Tau Omegas. It
was officially recognized by IFC
in January, 1947.
The installation of the British
Columbia group intp the fraternity
breaks a long tradition of the
fraternity. Until now the fraternity has been a national fraternity
in the United States.

Insurance With Wings
When the Canadian Government
drafted the Veterans' Insurance Act,
before passing the measure during
the 1944 session, it saw fit to include a pair of wings in the embryonic Act. Tlie wings have now
sprouted and the availability of
Government insurance to veterans
will soon fly away. Veterans discharged before February 20, 1945 have
until February 20, 1948 to make application for such insurance. Those
discharged after Februray 20, 1945
have three years after the date of discharge to take advantage of an insurance plan, which looks like a "good
The Government plan includes the
following features: no medical examination (except in special cases); premium costs comparable to lowest
standard rates; insurance available in
amounts from $500 to $10,000; premiums payable monthly, quarterly,
half-yearly or yearly; policies unrestricted as to occupation, travel or
residence; five Life plans available;
liberal cash values; etc.
In pasing the Veterans' Insurance
Act, the Canadian Government operated on the realization that as a result
of impairments in health or disabilities (due to war service) many service men and women would be unable
to provide protection for their families through the normal channels of
commercial insurance. (From DVA
booklet "What's Ahead".) If this is
the case, then why the time limit
on such legislation? A three year
time limit implies that such impairments in health and disabilities mysteriously disappear in that space of
time. This, certainly, cannot be true,
and veterans should be able to take
advantage of Government insurance
in perpetunity or for another three
years at the very least.
More publicity on the Veterans' Insurance Act is necessary, as well as
action by the Canadian Legion and

In Gridiron Final
Contrary to an article' in ;

put up a slid fi.'.',!it before bowing out of the 19-17 i'ricl sop a>
Saturday, wb.cn they lost to i.e.
Linfield Wildcats 23-0.
In the first quarter, Don Lord's hi.a
was blocked by three Wildcats, bu
Lord recovered the ball in tbe UBC
end zone robbing the Wildcats of e
6-point touchdown and giving their
instead a 2-point safety. Tlie quartc
was highlighted by sparkling pass attacks from both sides, Douglas Reic'
doing most of the heaving for the
Although the Linfield squad managed to score another touchdown in
the second quarter, the 'Birds came
out of the dressing rooms from half-
time thirsting for blood. After receiving the kickoff from the Americans, a serie* of bucks and runs took
the Blue and Gold squad down to
their own 40-yard line where their
attack bogged down in the almost
knee-deep mud on the field. The
switch to a passing attack was disastrous for the UBC gridders, however,
when Reid's pass was intercepted on
the 45-yard stripe and run back for
a Linfield touchdown.
A 'Bird fumble on their own one-
yard line in the final stanza gave the
Wildcats their final score.
The battle was bitterly-fought from
beginning to end, and the play was
not lopsided as the score would indicate. In the first half, the Wildcats
gained four first downs to the 'Birds
two, but in the final half, the 'Birds
outplayed the Americans, making six
first downs without an answer from
the enemy.
Saturday's game was the last contest in UBC strip for three campus
stars. Herb Capozzi, Fred Joplin and
Jack Caplette are in their final year,
and will Be missing from the roster
of next year's squad. Their loss will
be felt keely by the fans, by the
coach, and by the team.
Final results of advance student
ticket sales for the UBC-Whitman

GOOD, BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH were the  Longview Lions here pictured above. They were
defeated by the high-flying Thunderbirds ir. S:-t; urday night's hoop contest to the tune of 47-38.
ird Hoopmen I ake Lions
The Blue and Gold hoopla experts made an impressive debut before American competition
Saturday night when they defeated the Lions of Longview by a 47-38 margin on the campus
maples. Although the play was not as fast and clean as the opener with the Grads, the 'Birds
showed signs of a bright future as the rookies took a prominent place in the weekend tilt.
The roughness and lack of polish,
that at times was very evident, was
due to "first game nervousness" in
the opinion of Thunderbird coach,
Bob Osborne. Shooting and passing
was generally below par throughout
the contest.
It appeared that it was just too
early in the year for tfce Longview
squad to show any of the form that
won them fifteen games without a
loss in their appearances last year.
According to the Lion coach, the
entire team with the exception of
one man has returned this year.
The 'Birdmen were up against a
team that was a lot harder on the
boards than they were, but in spite
of this, they grabbed off a good
percentage of the rebounds.
After a slow start, the 'Birds finally managed to get their shooting
eyes adjusted to lead 11-5 at the end
of the first quarter, and continued
to work up their lead to 27-17 at the
half-way mark.
Although the 'Birds started out
well in the second half with two
quick baskets, the Lions went on to
outscore the Varsity squad by one
point in the third quarter, giving
the "Men of Oz" a 35-26 lead at the
three-quarter mark. Twelve points for
each team in the last quarter ended
the scoring just as both teams were
beginning to start clicking.
Reliable Harry Kermode led the
scoring parade for the local lads as
he garneTed twelve points.
Varsity Ruggermen Subdue
UBC Squad In Campus Tilt
That Thunderbird Ruggermen will have ample material
with which to build and maintain this year's team was proven
at the Stadium Saturday afternoon when the league leading
Varsity crew took a hard won victory over their brother UBC
fifteen. Under a clear blue November sky, some 200 fans
watched the yellow shorted UBC squad hold the undefeated
Varsity lads to an 8-5 win.

The tilt, the second between the two
campus squads this' season, treated
the disappointing small crowd to
what most considered the best display of English Rugby seen this year
on Point Grey fields.
Varsity opened the offensive early
in the first half and kept the UBC
squad bottled in their end. The blue
shirted three line ran all over the
field and kept the UBC-ites continu-'
ally on the defence during all of the
first frame. Working like well-oiled
clockwork, the blue backfield, loaded
Varsity Loses
Fitba1 Leadership
Varsity muffed a good chance to
grab undisputed possession of first
spot in the V & D First Division standings when a surprisingly strong Empire Hotel eleven beat them 5-2 Sunday at Callister Park. Meanwhile
North Burnaby, who tied for leadership last week with the Blue and
Gold, dropped a close decision to
Collingwood and South Hill whipped
Powell River to take a one-point hold
on top spot.
; Out at Mitchell Park Saturday UBC
were blasted 5-1 by Norquay. The
UBC boys claim the score was really
3-all because they put the ball into
their own goal twice.
Varsity held their own during the
first  half with Empire Hotel  as Pat
| Harrison fired the initial goal which
was duplicated ten minutes later by
the opposition. Before the second half
was twenty minutes old, Bus Byford
of the hotel squad had blasted home
four counters, leaving Varsity little
chance to recover. Bobby Moulds who
played inspired ball for the Blue and
Gold, got one back before the final
whistle. Captain and centre-half Gus
McSween was also outstanding for
the losers along with fallback Jack
One goal by outside-right Jackie
Blackhall was the only thing UBC
could accomplish against Norquay.
with stars that have be«n playing together for several years, broke into
the scoring colttmn when Gordie McKee crossed the line.
Onlookers  were  impressed   by   the
efficiency   of   Johnny   Wheeler,   Bud
Spiers, Russ Latham, Bill Dunbar and
the rest of the Varsity backfeld.
Although unable to get hold of the
ball during most of the game, the
UBC forwards started to roll in the
second half and only the apparent
weakness of the backfield prevented
the wasp-colored crew from carrying
more of a sting.
Varsity's three' line worked overtime
and the second half saw the score
move up to 8-0 when from a forward
scramble near the UBC line, Al
Carlyle scored. Ace kicker Barry
Morris split the posts for the extr i
three points.
Hilary (Spoon) Wotherspoon and
Scott Nerr pushed the UBC crew into
tho offensive during the last fifteen
minutes of the game and big Keith
MacDonald finally broke through the
Varsity defence for the score. Final
tally was 8-5.

Powerful Luckies
Topple Chiefs
A rough and tumble battle in the
Royal City last Friday saw tfye New
Westminster Luckies hammer out a
40-28 victory over the smaller and
lighter UBC Chiefs.
The Luckies, formerly called the
Adanacs, made absolute use of their
player and floor experience to take
the fresh and rather inexperienced
Chiefs. This fact, coupled with the
team's claim that the YMCA gym at
New Westminster, where the game
was played, has baskets that are
about six inches too short, resulted
in the one-sided play and complete
triumph for the Luckies.
"Pop" Pay was the key man on the
Luckies that took most ,of the dazzle
out of the ol' razzle. Pay chalked up
a neat 8 points second to the ten
racked in by McDonald.
The students went to town when
it came to taking their gift shots.
The Luckies committed 21 fouls to the
Chief's 11. Of the total score of 28, the
Chiefs came by 14 through the foul
line tosses. Only 7 field baskets in all.
Chuck Raltt and Normie Watt were
high men for the University club with
six apiece. The campus team feels
that they will chalk this one up to
experience and go on from here.
