Mock Parliament
Amends 'River Act
Campus Liberals foiled a Socred minority and placed control of international rivers in the hands of parliament during
a hotly ^debated mock parliament, Thursday noon in Arts
100.
Anticipating the actual federal bill which will frustrate the
desire of B.C's Social Credit gov
ernment to allow an American
company to develop the hydro
power resources of the Colombia river the Liberals won handily with an appeal to "Canada
for Canadian  capital."
"Any Canadian province that
allows American capital to develop its rivers will jeopardize
not only its own position but
the whole nation's, Liberal Minister of external affairs . Walt
Young stated.
Archie McGugan, ardent campus communist, unexpectedly interpreted the party line to coincide with Socred policy and
came out in favor of American
capital devlopment ot Canadian
resources.
"There's no capital like Das
Kapital", Conservative Jim Mc-
Auley quipped in reply.
A 31 to 21 split decided the
issue for the Liberals.

Student Court
tares Costs
For Redshirts
Student Court declined to
award damages arising out of a
raid at Memorial Gym last Friday, January 14, or for the
damages caused in a night raid
on the Pub offices Thursday,
January 13. They held there
was a lack of proof that engineers were: the faculty involved.
The Student Court assessed 70
per cent of cost against the EUS
and 'M> per cent against the Pub
after a Ubyssey column provoked Ilu- Engineers into raid
ing Pub offices resulting in over
$100 damages.
Student officials are still trying lo reduce this amount. Il
is felt that Buildings and
Grounds assessment was out of
line with the damage actually
done.
Whether or not Faculty Council will ovcrulc this finding is
a matter of speculation. Reliable
sources feel Faculty Council
may reverse student court and
find bolh Ihe Publications Board
and    EUS    liable    for    the    full
Red Shirt
Manages
Best Seat
UBC Aggies raised $200 and
dumped 50 students on the Main
Mall Thursday for the March
of  Dimes.
The main attraction was a
slippery swinging barrel which
the Aggies dared all to ride. Bob
Green ough, first year engineer,
proved to have the best seat
on the "bucking barrel" and won
two tickets to tho Farmer's Frolic Friday night.
Spectators were entertained
by Aggies, Engineers and even
the odd Artsman, who clung
to, kicked at, fell off and occasional rode the saddled barrel. Greenough was timed at 14
seconds by Aggie judges Bill
Baldwin and Hugh Kirk. The
time totals showed that both
Aggies and Frosh beat the Engineers on combined totals. Announcer and caller Mike Manna
and a band supplied by Aggies'
"worthy neighbors," the Engineers, kept the affair going at a
good   pace.
Hard-riding Aggie girls, Audrey Kovak and Jean McLean,
who both held for a reasonable
time, provided special interest.
Ralph "Turtle'' Tortorelli was
credited with the shortest time
of    under    one    second.    Small
i change found in the straw was
added   to   the   March   of   Dimes
| fund.
i From the sale of twenty-four
boxes of apples during the day
the Aggie students took in $200
tor the March of Dimes. This
is an annual alfair and the group
was pleased with the results
of this year's campaign.
COWBOY COUSINS PLA Y HOST
IN  CAMPUS BARN' DANCE
Cowbells will ring in the year's most informal brawl
this evening as our educated cowboy cousins play host in
the 'Campus Barn'.
Anyone having any old wagon wheels lying around
are urged to dress up as a mule train and roll on over.
It has been rumored that the 'coolest' square dance
addicts will be awarded a chromium plated milk churn to
burp into.
For a two buck 'podner type' ticket you can kick up
your heels till they fall off . . .

Chairman Smith
Declines Comment
BEG general chairman Stanley V. Smith Thursday refused to make public a report by BEG facilities committee
chairman Col. J. G. Swan, which backed construction of a
second swimming pool at UBC.
"I have no intention of pub-*— i	
lishlng Col. Swan's report," said
Smith.
He was answering a demand
from Dean Geoffrey C. Andrew,
who objected to a charge by
Smith that failure by UBC to
roof Empire Pool would be a
repudiation of the agreement between the University and the
BEG.
OWN FEELINGS
"I have definite feelings on the
subject myself," Smith told The
Ubyssey, "but in my position as
chairman, which gives me no
vote on the executive committee,
I don't feel It tfould be wise to
make them public."
He said the decision has been
made by a committee meeting,
and denied Dean Andrew's contention that Co.. Swan's report
had yet to be considered by the
committee.
In reply to Dean Andrew's
charge that committee member
Professor Robert Osborne has
had no chance to discuss alternative plans, he said: "We have
had meetings, but Prof. Os-
born did not attend them."
YET TO ATTEND
He added: "Prof. Osborne will
be at the next meeting which
will be held shortly."
Dean Andrew had also said
that the pool agreement stipulated that Empire Pool would
be roofed only if funds were
available. "The University does
not have funds sufficient to roof
Empire Pool," he said.
Debaters  Go
To  Tacoma
UBC will send a debating
team to compete in the Evergreen Conference Debates February 10, 11, and 12 at the College of Puget Sound, Tacoma.
Danny Goldsmith, Harvey
Dick, Jack Austin, Nassam Goldman will debate on U.S. Foreign
Policy, and "Women, in politics
—benefaction or menace?''
Debaters will meet with their
coach John Redekop in Arts 201
today at 4 p.m.
IFC Asks
New Look
At Frats
An Inter-Ffraternity Council
internal committee, formed
early lat November to investigate means of removing discriminatory practices from campus
fraternities and to investigate
gentlemen's agreemnts has uncovered nothing new at the local
level, but will suggest a new
approach to the problem at the
international level.
A report will be filed with
IFC next Tuesday.
12 CAME HOME
The committee, composed of
Jim Carter, Bob Dickson and
Dick Bird, sent questionaires to
16 campus fraternities contain-
local group practise racial dis-
ing such questions as "does your
crimination" and "morally, do
you feel that your international
chapter is completely non-discriminatory?"
Only 12 of the questionaires
were returned and all were
unsigned. "We gave them the
choice of whether or not to sign
their answers," said Jim Carter,
"but nobody identified themselves."
JUST THE ANSWER
The report will recommend
through the international IFC,
a large, rather nebulous body
which, according to Carter
might be "just the answer."
Submission of the report was
delayed until next week since
Dick Bird, who did not participate in the drafting, wished to
"look it over" before it was officially submitted.
The committee was originally
formejd'as a result of dispute in
which Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity withdrew from IFC and
accused them of doing too little
in the fight against discrimination.
Endowment Revenue
Connected to Grant?
The B.C. government has not yet indicated whether revenue from the development of University Endowment Lands
is expected to help finance the ten million dollar campus development programme announced by Premier W. A. C. Bennett Tuesday.
Lands Minister R. E. Sommers
will describe development plans
in a speech to the House this
afternoon.
Deputy minister E. W. Bassett
declined to make any statements
as to the government's plans.
He would not say whether or
not President N. A. M. Mackenzie's request to increase campus
area from 838 to 1000 acres
would be granted.
Neither President Mackenzie
nor deputy president Dean G, C.
Andrew could add anything further. "I know nothing about the
government's plans, but we hope
that they will develop the lands
in the best interests of the university," said Dean Andrew.
Land endowment manager N.
E. Ferguson said that three separate surveys have been made
of the lands, and expects immediate appointment ot a town
planner to finalize the development programme. He did not
know what financial connections
this development might have
with the government grant.
In announcing a "master
plan" development program last
November Sommers said that expenses of the lands are presently
surpassing income by $3,000 per
month.
Revenue from present development of the lands is supposed
to provide a fund for endowment of UBC.
At present, however, there is
approximately only $800,000 remaining in the endowment
funds.

BECAUSE   THEY   LOST
Underhill, Council Raid
Pub In Crazed Orgy
Losing end of a 30-16 basketball score sent Student Council president Dick Underbill on a crazed raid of the Publications Board offices Thursday.
Underhill, apparently dis-
grunteled because his decadent
councillors were plainly trounced in a game watched by more
than 1000 students in the Women's gym, led a sortie of six
berserk councillors in the raid.
The sweating and unclothed
group ran shouting into the pub
offices, then grabbed a desk and
hauled it away.
FRUSTRATION
The raid was attributed to
frustration and poor sportsmanship on the part of the losing
councillors. Underhill had earlier been thrown out ot the game
for  immorality.

Students Hail New Arts Building
Day and night work should
begin on the new Arts building if the enthusiasm shown
by students in a Ubyssey poll
is any measure of the urgency.
Following are the reactions
of students to the proposed
new Arts building.
Anne Neave, Arts 4: "A
wonderful idea! Sorry I won't
be here to enjoy  it."
Danny Goldsmith, Law 3:
"The only true University
faculty   has   at   last  got   some
attention. The Arts building
is the heart of the campus
(and) the keystone of the university."
Don Mitchel, Arts 4: "A new
Arts building will gather the
Arts faculty together. It's the
biggest faculty on the campus
and (yet) it's a lost child.' I
think residences should get
priority,   however."
Bob Brady, Comm. 4: "The
Arts building certainly needs
expanding    but    I   think   that
housing should get priority.
Anyway, as long as the building gets started 1 will be satisfied."
• Steve Storm, Arts III: Maybe an Arts building should be
more central, but this is the
best building site on the campus."
Ian McGregor, Arts  1:    "A
good idea, if we can gel it.
The present Arts building did
disappoint me when 1 came to
UBC this year."
Tennis players were concerned about the fate of their
courts by the women's gym
which occupy thc site of the
future Arts building.
Engineers were noncommital
about the project except for
one who commented, "build il
anywhere as long as as it's far
away from the Engineering'
building." The comment was
anonymous by request as the
Engineer still lias some Arts
courses lo lake. Page Two

First Things  First
Inter-Fraternity Council's investigation committee is
fast revealing itself for a cover-up device to take the pressure off fraternities practising "gentlemen's agreement" discrimination.
Supposedly set up to uncover and remove the will-o-the-
wisp of unwritten discrimination thfc committee has offered
no report on its investigation to date—three months after
its inception.
I.F.C. was acclaimed as an active progressive body for
its action in setting up the cojnmittee entirely on its own,
but the acclaim sounds fainter and fainter in the face of the
committee's stalling.
Commitee members plead that their work cannot be
evaluated until they publish their final report, but their
only action to date has been to send out -questionnaires on
discrimination which can even be returned unsigned if the
recipient wishes.
•   It would be difficult to conceive a more negative approach to the problem.
The first logical step to ridding the campus of "gentle-
men's agreements" would seem to be to find out which* fraternities practise them. Either the committee has developed an
entirely new approach far above the comprehension of
ordinary mortals or they are stalling in the hope that the
controversy will die.
Which is which?
ALL   the   News ?
"Our equalitarian democratic experiment will not work
unless the masses of the citizens can be stirred to some continuous interest in the problems of government . . . Now the
chief instruments for mediating between the government . . .
and the citizen body aro the press and the party system . . .
Neither is performing its functions very satisfactorily . . ."
So spoke Toronto's Professor Frank Underhill to a
Queen's University audience last week.
The truth of Professor Underbill's words were graphically born out this week by the Vancouver Province and
Vancouver Sun.
A momentous decision—ratification of West German rearmament—is facing nearly every government in the Western World this month.
The Canadian parliament, the assembly hall wherein
rings the voice of the Candian people, is debating the issue
this very moment.
What is that voice saying?
We don't know because the Sun and Province have seen
\\i to run vague wire service reports of the Commons debate
buried in their back pages.
External Affairs Minister Lester Pearson, according to
the London Times, made the most refreshing and reassuring statement on West German rearmament of any Western
spokesman.
What did Pearson say? Tho London. Times knows but the
people of Vancouver, the people whom Pearson speaks for,
don't. The Sun and Province did not think this speech
worthy of a very big spread.
Alter the London Times put their hallowed stamp of approval on his speech the Sun thought it safe to run a complimentary editorial of their own.
Canada, so tho press and radio of foreign nations tell
us, is assuming a leading role in the affairs of the troubled
world. But our papers report faithfully what the United
States, Britain or France think or do not think, on important
issues and very rarely report what we, through our government, think.
No governmenl can survive very long, let alone he a
leader among nations, it the people- it governs are disinterested and uninformed.
Professor Underhill spoke of the Toronto Star and Telegram as "those two marvels ol cheap mass entertainment."
He might very well have deleted the words 'Star and Telegram" and inserted the words "Sim and Province."
Student Reports On Czechoslovakia
By   PAUL  ROMERIL
(Paul Romeril is a third
year Arti student at UBC
who visited Czechoslovakia
last summer on a World University study tour. The following are extracts from his
report of the visit.)
RECEPTION
Arrival at the heavily fortified border and sight of armed
guards inspecting the train
gave the group a few uneasy
moments. Immigration officials
arrived to welcome us and to
present us with rail tickets to
Prague. In the capital the group
was welcomed by Rudolf Rei-
chel of IUS.
Efficient and considerate attention to group continued until our departure. Accommodation was arranged in the better
hotels. We were provided not
only with food but also with
pocket money ... at eur disposal were two Tatra sedans
provided by Czech Youth Movement.
EDUCATIONAL
Our stay occurred in summer
vacation . . . unable to observe
Czech school system in action.
It resembles Canada's . . . eight
years of primary education,
then either three years of high
school preparation for university, or 4 or S years in "technical high school."
At a housing project for factory workers we interrupted a
meeting of young student leaders, ages 9 to 13, assembled to
discuss their activities for summer. They showed us their new
school, which had all modern
conveniences including a magnificent 'gym and cafeteria.
In Pilsen, the Technical High
School, roughly comparable to
our enginering faculties offers
five years general training follow by two years' specialization. At present has 600 students. Also in Pilsen we visited
the Chemical Institute of Char-
lots Medical School. In the library, a good collection of English volumes, but none dated
later than 1950. We were informed that due to currency
difficulties, few recent works
were   obtainable.
At the Charles University
Humanities Faculty (founded
in 1348 by Charles JV), the
main building "home of Jan
Huss" has been under renovation since 1946, should be completed by 1959. The history of
thc institution was recorded
in a display of ancient documents, dating back to Ilth century.
INDUSTRY
In a workers' settlement
adjoining a large factory,
(which we were not permitted
to see for security reasons) we
saw many new apartment houses and a large postwar community centre. In this one
building are all the town's
shops, worker's clubrooms and
union  headquarters.
The flats are either 1, 2 or
3 rooms, depending on size of
family. The one-room type being provided for workers who
return to neighbouring villages
for the weekend
This is made possible by the
factory's shift system—after 12
eight-hour days, the worker has!
two days  off.  Annual  holiday ]
is two weeks, bul after 5 years'
service it's  three  weks. |
We visited an apprentice;
housing development. The boys'
ranging in age from 15 to 20 j
20 years, live 4 to a room.       I
!
SEX EQUALITY j
In the girls' clubrooms, tiie
group interviewed several IH
and 14 year olds. We asked
what was nature of the factory
positions filled by women. They
sad they saw no reason why
women should not be employed
lo do certain tasks as fully the
equals of men.
RELIGION
When   asked   their   religious,
affiliations   8()'<     replied   they
were Catholic, l()'o  Protestant,
and   remainder   no   atfiliation
We inquired did they believe
in Ood? After some confusion,
a few lifted their hands. The
contradiction was explained
that since they were baptized
as Catholics, they still regard-
'ed themselves as such,
RECREATION
We visited a school summer
camp at Horicc. All urban
school children are provided
with 2 weeks vacation at such
by the state and' partly by par-
camps. The cost is borne partly
by their parents.
The group sent one morning
in Prague at the Young Pioneer
Palace. We saw workshops,
music  rooms,  a  film  theatre,

HEALTH AND ART
In Prague wc visited two exhibits; one on the growth of
medical science entitled "Life
versus Death": and the othefr
allegedly an "art exhibition."
The latter was the most slanderous and distorted display
we had yet seen, and several
Czech bystanders made it quite
clear they were ashamed of it.
The "Life vs. Death" display
was artistic and effective, but
the theme was a perversion of
historical fact, designed to
prove tha "burgcuis commercialism" had strangled the humanitarian goals of medical science.
Thc booth portraying activities of the Czech National
service was interesting and surely this scheme is something all
Czechs can be proud of.

Next time you're thumbing
through back issues of the National Geographic, you may run
across pictures of the muscle-
building executives of the Bank
of Iran. It's enough to make
Canadian bankers ashamed of
themselves. Iranian bankers believe in physical as well as
fiscal soundness. At their sur
khtneh or House of Strength,
they meet regularly, dressed in
embroidered leather breeches to
drill with clubs, lift heavy wooden shields, and toy with iron
chains. They begin by touching the ground and shouting
"Ya, Ali!" While a spiritual
leader beats candence and recites Persian verse, the banker-athletes  do   push-ups.
If any Royal Bank manager
wants to build up his muscles,
that's his business. However, he's
got to do it in his spare time
because during f office hours he

Capacity Audience
Thrilled By Quartet
By MARIE STEPHEN
■ A capacity audience was thrilled with the artistry of
of the world's finest string quartets Wednesday noon, in
U,BC Auditorium.
Judging from thc enthusiastic
response of those present critics
could little doubt that the Julliard String Quartet more than
deserved this accolade.
Their flawless rendition of
Hadyn's "Lark" quartet began
the hour long program which
also featured a contemporary
score by composer Walter Piston.
Outstanding in the opening
movement was first violinist,
Robert Mann, whose delicate
tone and almost unbelievable
control set a standard undiminished throughout the entire performance.
The largato passages of the
second movement illustrated
trated Hadyn's love of rich flowing harmonies in contrasting
themes carried by the four
strings.
The spirited closing movements of the quartet demonstrated to perfection the coordination existing between the youthful musicians.
In decided contrast to this
work was the modern pattern
set by the opening minor chords
of the Walter Piston composition.
This unconventional score
with its exacting coun ter pointed
passages demonstrated versatility of the group and although
unfamiliar to the majority of
the audience was given an enthusiastic reception.

According to Ron Bray, treasurer *■■? Student Council, the
Athletic Roundtable would have
made a profit only if gate receipts netted over $3000. One-
third of returns over his stipulated sum were to have gone to the
organization.
Total profits from combined
East-West and Boxing Day
games however only came to an
estimated $1200 to $1500.
Trans-Canada Airlines were
chiefly responsible for cutting
losses on the East-West sport
event by lowering the charge of
fringing out the University of
Toronto team from $8500 to
$4000.

Buck Wants
Scholarships
■ TORONTO-(CUP)-Tim Buck,
national LPP leader, called lot-
more scholarships, better financing of universities amid student hecklers at a University of
Toronto meeting last week.
He charged the government
with curtailing opportunities for
graduates by restricting industrial'development, and said that
federal Irade minister, C. D.
Howe, threatened Canadian companies with fiscal penalties if
Ihey tried to exploit oiu' raw
materials.
When asked to name outstanding western warmongers, Buck
cited Foster Dulles and to a
lesser degree. General MeArliiur
and George   Drew.
The whole meeting was accompanied by castanets, catcalls
and boos, despite the opening
pleas for a quiet  meel ing.
The sputum cup, popular
among rich and poor alike, was
first deviled by I\li» Moll\
Sputum, an itinerant lemming-
strangjer from Kapuskasing.

For a
Light Smoke
and a
Pleasing Taste
As chief curator of the National Art Gallery of Canada, Dr.
Robert Hubbard spoke to students at UBC Thursday. He was
sponsored by UBC Fine Arts
Committee on campus, and Vancouver Art Gallery and School
gf Art in Vancouver.
Dr. Hubbard became a staff
member of the Vancouver gallery in 1946. After receiving his
B.A. from McMaster University,
he pursued studies at the University of Paris and the Royal Museum   of   Belgium,   comcluding
his stduies at Wisconsin where
he obtained his Ph.D.
Responsible for the display
collection of representative European art from the 15th century
to modern times, Dr. Hubbard
has displayed a flair for advantageously displaying 16th century Venetian art. His Canadian
collection is the most representative and comprehensive in
Canada.
Because of a government allotment last year, the Vancouver
Gallery was   able  to   purchase
paintings from the famed Liech-
enstein collection.
Local authorities are hoping
that work will be begun on the
new National Gallery buildings
within the year. Plan design*
have been received from fourteen Canadian architects, the
comptition being won by a Winnipeg firm.
In Hubbard's opinion, B.C.
architecture is the most advanced in Canada. He says that this
is due chiefly to the efforts of
the B.C. School of Architecture,
and student interest locally.

Rugger Chiefs Meet Oak
Bay Wanderers At Varsity
COUNCIL TYPE Ron Bray places his grubby little hands
on thebasketball that was bouncing about in the pub-
council hoopla game Thursday. Note "Dirty Dick Underbill" in foreground as he pins pubman Bob Bergen with
his elbow. Undy, incidentally was fouled out of the game

EZRA   WHEATCROPT
The Compost Heap
Gather round, chillun' while ole Uncle Ezra returns to the
homestead and pontificates on the general situation of the
campus' Armpit Amphitheatre, the proposed 16 swimming
pools and Dirty Dick Underbill's wife.
First: Leave us desist from the foo-foo-raw common among
the peasants and reveal the TRUE STORY (this should make
Blowhard Bedclothes' column) of the sordid story of the B.C.
Athletic Round Table and the East-West game.
Now let's get this straight, as Newton J. McSlurp said to his
girl friend down at Struggler's Gulch, the BCARTS did not lose
money on the UBC-Toronto game. Eric Whitehead, an excellent
sport columnist, but unfortunately, a poor businessman, has spread
the word among the hinterlands that his BCARTS lost money on
his il-fated, ill-planned and ill (financially) promotion.
Actually, BCARTS made approximately $1200 on the East-
West game but spread the plea that'they had lost money on the
game in an effort to recoup their losses on the previous five
BCARTS promotions. Not that Whitehead's group has never released a financial statement on the game but instead Issued the
pauper's plea and received the funds from the Boxing Day game
between B.C. Cubs and Blue Bombers.
if, if if
No one, least of all old Wheatcropt, the Friend of the Masses,
will begrudge the BCARTS the proceeds from that Boxing Day
game. Whitehead's purpose in founding the BCARTS was a very
commenable one and it is unfortunate that the organization has
failed but now is the time, as the story-books say, when a blow
must be struck for UBC and to hell with the consequences.
BCARTS has intimated downtown that the East-West game was
a financial failure because UBC students failed to fulfill their
obligations in regard to ticket sales: To do a little intimating and
revealing of our own of the fantstically-idealistic plans and lack
Of organization of BCARTS.
Whitehead and his rapidly-diminishing cohorts switched the
game from the swamp called Empire Stadium to UBC only a week
before the game. TWO DAYS before the game. BCARTS had still
made no plans for accommodation for the Toronto plyaers. That
the East-West game was not a complete flop is a credit to MAA
president Bob Brady, Ron Bray, Bob Hutchinson and a few other
UBC-minded UBC students.
Theses three persuaded the gracious Phi Delts to vacate their
brothel, fixed up the fraternity houses and even had to make
beds themselves to have some accommodation ready for Toronto
players. UBC had to take over final arrangements on ticket sales
which had been hopelessly botched by BCARTS boys who looked
at football games through rosy-colored bifocals.
Blunderbirds   Ready
For   Second   Contest
Coach Albert Laithewaite's high-flying Thunderbirds come
back to being mere Chiefs Saturday when they take on the
Oak Bay Wanderers at the Owen Bowl Saturday at 2 p.m.
Maxie    Howell's    Bell-Irving
Braves, still smarting over their
loss to Blue Bombers last weekend will face an Ex-Brit aggregation on the upper field at 1:30.
BIG NOISE
Tomahawks, currently the big
noise in Carmichael Cup play
meet Ex-Tech at Hillcrest at 1:15
while the Blunderbirds, sometimes known as the Redskins,
meet North Shore All-Blacks
also at Hillcrest at 2:30.'
The betting fraternity would
be wise if they counted on a
clean sweep, even at squared
odds. And here is why.
Chief opposition, Oak Bay, are
one of the league's weaker sisters, and as the Chiefs seem to
be returned to full strength,
they look like easy winners. Bill
Whyte, freshman father of a
bouncing boy will be in at fullback.
WHYTE IN
Rajah Kronquist, who did well
at last week's game, picked up
a shoulder injury and will be
out for a while. Ross Wright,
out for a few weeks with a bad
knee, has returned completely
healed and will add his powerful running to the Chiefs back-
line.
Braves of course -are mad as
a first time loser should be and
look likely to sweep the field
with Ex-Brits.
Tommies, of course are the
fair haired lads, with an uncountable win streak and look
like easy winners.
UNKNOWN
Blunderbirds are the unknown
quantity, but no one will get
very high odds against Don Coryell's fighting crew.
After their close loss to a
ringer loaded team last week,
the football players turned rugger-men look like a good bet
over North Shore, a team that
has not shown any particular
potential.
What they lack in experience
the Blunderbirds sure as hell
make up in fight and it appears
they should make a clean sweep
for the weekend.

When the game was over, BCARTS discreetly spread the rumour around the downtown papers that the game was a financial
flozzola. UBC officials in on the deal, sworn to secrecy, knew
that Whitehead's group had come out approximate! $1200 on top,
partly due to Trans-Canada Airlines, which had cut their bill
from $8500 to $4000 for flying Toronto out here, taking a loss similar to the one they took when they flew UBC to the first McGill
game in 1953.
A very kindly gesture by the much-maligned TCA. Too bad,
BCARTS, eager to wipe out their deficit, could not do something
of the same nature, instead of trying to blame their East-West
flop on innocently-involved UBC.
*
*
Sorry we can't become more light-hearted, but Uncle Ez, on
a serious kick today, must continue with the rah-rah, hurrah, and
do-or-die-for-dear-old-Johnny-Owen theme on this Friday when all
of us may be drafted to play our ball on Formosa tomorrow.
IF the Canadian Rugby Union, {and let's remember, these
WIFU and Big Four recommendations mean nothing until approved
by the CRU) makes peace with the National Football League, B.C.
Lions, or any other club, won't be able to pull another steal of the
Jack (he of the sorority-tainted) Hutchinson type.
Terms of the. NFL truce dictate that Canadian teams, like American pros, eannot touch a college player till his class graduates.
A very sensible move, says Ezra, in tne assinine football war which
can benefit no one accept American college semi-pro players who
make a farce of all that the quaint term of UNIVERSITY stands
for (the applauding you hear in the background comes from Dr.
Robert Hutchins).
* if if
On that pleasant note, Ezra will drift off to the shade and quiet
of the dispi'ii.iing unit  iu the  women's jawn.
their athletic endeavours, anyway, have a record that would
be envied by most of the male
teams on campus.
TAKE 'EM
Take the grass hpekey teams
for instance. Having returned
home from travelling, the two
girls' lawn teams have set with
a will to attempt to walk off
with all the local women's grass
hockey silverware.
The Varsity tearrt, which finished first at the end of the first
half, is currently having a rough
go trying to keep tied for first
place with the UBC, or second
team.
The upstart UBC team finished third at the end of the first
half of the schedule.
MEANWHILE
Meanwhile the basketball
team, though meeting some very
tough opposition in the Senior
B women's league, is packing its
bags and making ready for a
trip to Victoria.
Though the seniors are not the
winningest team in the women's
league, they have a girl, who
goes by the name of Louise Heal,
who is in a constant battle for
top honours in the baskets scored department with the rest of
the league.
A HARD TIME
Moreover the Juniors, though
tbey have a hard time winning
games, at least boast another
high scorer in Betty Best.
And the girls have even
branched into the volleyball
field. This weekend, which
trip to Victoria, seems to be a
travelling weekend, the girls'
volleyball team will journey to
Puget Sound and the college
there to play a game or two.
The team will be made up
from all the stars of the intramural league.
BRA VES MEET YMCA TEAM
IN SATURDAY NIGHT GAME
Though the Thunderbirds wil be idle this weekend,
Saturday night will be full of its usual athletic activity.
A paraplegic game will open Saturday night activity
in the gym, when Dueck and Fergusons face off in a
mechanized hop game, at 6:45 p.m.
Gerry Kenyons Braves will take on YMCA in the
feature game at 8:30, and after the beating they suffered
Tuesday, it is safe to assume they will be after blood.
Pep Club will sponsor a post game sock dance, music
provided by the Campus Coolsters.
Cleveland
Vs.  Giants
Monday
Filmsoc will present the B.C.
premiere of the 1954 World Series Monday in the auditorium at
noon. All those who would like
to see how the upstart Giants
disposed of the Cleveland Indians are invited to come along.
There will be no charge.

For  Sapperton
Two sleepers meet this Sunday on the campus, Varsity
play Sapperton in a game which could turn out to be the closest
of the season while Chiefs journey to Memorial West Park
to face Simpson-Sears.
With their new scoring potential Varsity are ready to erupt
with an outburst of goals anytime while Sapperton, New
Westminster Royal's farm-club,
are capable of playing better
ball than they have been showing lately.
PICK UP
Varsity should he able to pick
up two points in the standings
this weekend providing their injury lists stays down to a minimum. They lost a close one last
week to Halecos while Sapperton were being stopped by league-leading Pilseners 2 to 0. But,
both those Pilseners goals came
on penalty kicks.
Chiefsafter, tying   last   week
end will be out to take Simpsons-
Sears, The Chiefs have been
playing improved ball since
their dismal start at the first
of the-season.
