 Committee Plans "Representative" AMS Council
present Student Council of tho
Alma Mater Society, rather than
the establishment of a parliamentary type of student government,
was decided upon by the student
representation committee at a
meeting Tuesday evening.
Gordon Bertram, president of the
Literary and Scientific Executive,
advocated the parliamentary
scheme to do away with what he
termed a "vacuum" between students and their government at
He said that students are out
of touch with council under the
existing set-up, that consequently
they never know what council is
His plan would. have provided
for a lower house of about 25 members, drawn from different campus
organizations, and an executive for
functional work.
Under this plan, the lower house
would discuss campus problems
and offer suggestions to the executive, which would then have an
idea of student opinion before they
made a decision.
Opponents of the scheme, whicn
after much discussion, included the
majority of the committee, argued
that this would be too cumbersome for effective student government and that eventually the lower
house would die a natural death
of apathy because it had no real
They maintained also that there
could be no fair method of determining representation in the lower
The tentative plan eventually
evolved after a long committee
session provided for a 14-man
council with the editor-in-chief of
Publications an ex-officio member,
New members of the council
would be four representatives from
the faculties and three members-
The committee favored the
members-at-large plan to help in
the work of council and to provide
a wider range of opinion.
Still under consideration is a
proposal to draw the three-mem-
bers-at-large from the first, second
and third years, but to be elected
as representatives of the student
body at large, not of their classes.
This would entail a council election in October for the Freshman
class. It would be the first time
in UBC history that a Freshman
woyld be a member of council if
the plan is adopted. *
Some members of the committee
believed that a Freshman on council would give greater spirit to
the Freshman class and would be
o good organizer for council work.
The proposed council would include: president, treasurer, secretary, LSE president, WUS president, WAA president, MAA president and the new members.
The committee decided that the
position of president of the Men's
Undergraduate Society was superfluous because of the lack of activity of the society. While they
agreed that men do not need a
specific representative on council,
they still maintained the position
of president of the Women's Undergraduate Society.
"Women," said President Les
Raphael of the Men's Undergraduate Society, "are more homogeneous than men."
The committee agreed that the
women's activities on the campus
show that there is a need for some
specific representative on council
to give direction to that activity.
They argued that men's organized
activities are confined to athletics
and that men will always have
enough representation on council.
The committee's deliberations
•were the result of weeks of extensive preparation and investigation. Constitutions from more than
25 Canadian and American universities were examined.
The proposals will be submitted
to a test by experts before they
are passed by council and presented to students. Past presidents
of the AMS,, UBC alumni, and
faculty members will be asked to
review the plan and make suggestions.
Present plans call for a general
AMS meeting January 30 for student ratification of the proposals.
•   McGOUN CUP DEBATES will take place all over
western Canada tomorrow evening for the first time in
two years.
UBC will be represented by Don Holmes and Jim

The Triangle Debating League
was formed in 1920 with the three
prairie universities participating.
In 1924 a cup was donated by Dr.
A. F. McGoun for annual competition.
UBC entered the league in 1927
and the name was changed to
"Western Universities Debating
League." So far our university
has won the cup twice; in 1938 and
in 1942.
Students Reduce
Grad Class Fees
• A SCHEME has been arranged
whereby the students of UBC
will pey three dollars per year
for their graduation fees instead
of paying a lump sum of S15 ln
their final year.
This arrangement has been approved by the bursar and the graduating class executive, and will
go before the senate for the final
approval on the 29th of this month.
The result of a long fight, the
system works as follows:
A sum of three dollars per year
will be paid by every student as
part of their fees. Those who now
pay $73 will have to pay S76 in the
future, and so on. This means that
Engineers will pay a total of $15
for graduation, Artsmen $12, and
Nurses $6.
It is not expected that this system will come into effect until
next year. Therefore those who
graduate in 1946 will only have to
pay a fee of three dollars. This
will increase by three dollars each
year until the maximum has been

donations to date, according to recent statistics.  This is
one-fifth of the quota set for UBC.
The various faculties have reg
istered as follows: Arts, 250; Commerce, 10; Applied Science, 100;
Home Ec., 17; Aggie, 40; and others
Three hundred students signed
up after the Monday noon pep
meet. This figure comprises approximately one-tenth ot the student body.
"We cannot hope to put over
the drive successfully unless more
students co-operate," stated George Bramhall, who is in charge of
organization for the blood drive.
Members of the COTC who give
their blood will, as previously an
nounced, be exempted from a two
hour parade upon presentation of
the acknowledgement slip they
will receive after their donation.
Members of the UNTD, however,
are behind schedule with their donations due to the street-car

Stursberg To Address
SPC Meeting Friday
•   PETER STURSBERG will address the Social Problems
Club, tomorrow noon in Arts 100 on "Politics and War
in the Mediterranean".
____m—___________m______ Stursberg was the first war cor
respondent to go overseas for the
Canadian Broadcasting Corpora*
tion. Going over on a dynamite-
loaded ship, he landed at Liverpool and reached London in February, 1943.
He and Ross Munro were the
first correspondents to arrive in
Sicily. Stursberg went into action
with the assault troops on July
10, 1943.
He crossed  to Algiers on July
28 and remained in North Africa
for the next month, but returned
to Sicily for the Italian Invasion.
Landing near Catania on the
night of the invasion in September,
he covered the action of the rear
party and followed the progress of
the campaign as far as Totenza.
While carrying out his recall to
London, he flew there via Rabat,
the capital of French Morocco, arriving in London on October 17,
1943. London remained his headquarters until February, 1944.
After covering the "Little Blitz"
and the first exchange of repatriated prisoners of war, Mr. Stursberg returned to Italy in February
and covered the Ortona front until
the Rome offensive, which he followed till the fall of Rome.
scheduled for Saturday, January 20, providing the street car
strike is not then in progress.
The place is the Y.M.C.A. and
the time is supposedly from 7:30
to 10:30, although it has recently
been stated that there will also
be 1V4 hours free swimming.
It is possible that new records
can be set at this meet, but the
main purpose is to see that everyone has a good time. The girl
with the most points will receive
a cup which can go towards making her Small Block.
The Splash Party is the monthly event put on by WAA. The W
AD (executive of WAA), headed
by Lois Reid, has done a lot of
work towards making this Rarty a
success and it is hoped that there
will be a big turnout.
•   DEEP RIVER BOYS, world-famous singing aggregation,
will be presented at noon today in the Auditorium by
the Jazz Society.
These boys, who are acclaimed
everywhere as one of the finest
harmony singing teams in the
world, are currently appearing at
the Palomar Supper Club on a
record-breaking run.
Roy Lowther, president of the
Jazz Society, says that the quintet
was very enthusiastic to appear
in UBC's first jam session.
Besides these headliners, the
session will feature some of Vancouver's outstanding musicians
who will present their conception
of the modern idiom of" niusdc,'
improvised jazz.
The personnel of UBC's first
jam session includes Chuck Barber, trumpet; Phil Nimmons, clarinet and alto sax; Lance Harrison,
tenor sax; Bob Cotton, tenor sax;
Jimmy Hyatt, trombone; Ches
Cotter, electric guitar; Doug Parker, piano; Jack Cohen, drums;
and Eleanor, vocalist.
Parker, Cotter, and Cohen are
well-known names to all present-
day students and Nimmons Is still
remembered a one of the past
leaders of the UBC orchestra. Cohen, will aot as master of ceremonies.
At the present moment, Nimmons is leading an orchestra
which broadcasts over the CBC
on Thursday nights. The dusky
vocalist, Eleanor, who goes by
that name alone, is featured with
him. She specializes blues songs,
such as "Stormy Weather" and
"I Got It Bad and That Ain't
Good." It is reported that she
may sing these two.
Cotton Is from a Vancouver Navy
band and Harrison, reputedly the
best tenor man this side of the
Rockies, has appeared at the Palomar and in RCAF bands. Hyatt
Inlays for the Toronto RCAF band.
Lowther also announces that the
session is being held for two reasons. The first is to give UBC's
lovers of jazz ome solid hours of
pure entertainment. The second
is to boost the popularity of jazz
all over the campus.
The session is the Introduction
to a busy yeatf for the Jazz Society. The program of weekly record meetings will begin on January 25th at 12:30 in the Brock
Stage Room. The featured artist
will be announced at a later date.
Members of the society are urged
to make lists of their jazz records
and give them to Librarian-Treasurer Mona Quebec.
The president also announces
that members will still be accepted
in the Jazz Club.

UBC Forestry
Brief Asks
• EXPANSION of facilities for
forestry instruction both at tha
university and at Pitt Lake forest
grant were the main points of %
hvXZ-sterna ^ Kit<**b
Club to the Royal Forest Commission last Monday.
Robert Knowles, president of
the club, urged development of the
Pitt Lake Forest for forest study
and research. He took .as an example the facilities offere in the
Charles Lathrop Pack Forest, the
forest tract developed by the College of Forestry, Washington.
The brief drew heavily from the
report prepared by Dean Graves
of the Yale Forest School on forest education. In this report practical forest education was the mam
point in grading forest study facilities.
Other recommendations included
the establishment of noe undergraduate degree, namely, Bachelor of the Science of Forestry.

Disappearance Contradicted
Following is a guest editorial written
by Leslie Raphael, president of the Men's
Undergraduate Society and chairman of the
Discipline Committee, in reply to Tuesday's
lead editorial, "The Discipline Committee
Mr. Scott has a certain obvious flare
for editorial work which often neglects, in
its necessarily brief form, the vital issues
at stake in some of Council's decisions. To
read Mr. Scott's editorial of January 16,
entitled, sentimentally, "The Discipline
Committee Disappears", the generally uninformed student would deduce that the
present members of the body were people of
whishy character and general incompetence.
I hasten to reassure the readers that this is
by no means the case.
The present members are serious student officers doing a difficult job under the
yoke of an outmoded constitution. The present difficulty of the Discipline Committee
is in the representation drawn from the faculties. Since these members represent individual faculties they are obliged to act
for them. In matters of inter-faculty disturbances their position is obviously a difficult one and one which renders decisive
action impossible. Regardless of how
"strong-minded" they might be, their affiliation must necessarily prejudice their
decisions on such matters as the inter-fac
ulty disturbances. To "make effective use
of their power" as the editorial under discussion suggested, would cause the individual representatives of the faculties a great
deal of discomfort when faced by their
general assemblies, the members of which
will only realize that their president, the
man who is supposed to represent them on
the Discipline Committee, has "let them
down". It follows then that this member is
in danger of losing his executive prestige
in his own group. The result of this would
be a weakening in the carefully-built chain
of student government.
The Student Council then decided to
strengthen the position of the Discipline
Committee and remove the direct burden
of decision from these few, necessarily
partisan members, to a larger, more general
group which could, through its very generality, as it is responsible to the entire student
body rather than to any one group or fao-
tion, reach its decisions more effectually and
with more authority and dignity.
tCdntrary to Mr. Scott, the move was
not a "hasty shake-up" nor a "whim", but
a carefully devised plan to ensure the maintenance of the disciplinary function in the
hands of the students by giving them the
machinery and authority, free from the restrictions imposed by direct faculty representation.

Justice for Student Thiefer
The quick action of the administration
in dismissing a student from the university
for stealing money from the lockers of other
students meets with the approval of all those
interested in ending the recent outbreak of
thefts at UBC.
We hesitate to think that there are students on this campus who not only steal,
but also make a regular practice of it. Such
is the case, according to an increasing number of complaints. It is not a nice thing to
know that a person you consider a friend, a
fellow student, might also be a thief.
We hope that the student dismissed is
the only thief among us. But if there are
still students on the campus partaking of
The Final Stage
We have reached the final stage of
transition in The Ubyssey for this year with
the acquisition of our new headline type,
which went into active use at the beginning
of the new year. From now on the paper
will be presented as we have wanted to
present it since taking over last Fall.
Our object is a modern, easily-read
newspaper. We try to please every reader
on the campus. We aim at a neat balance
of all the different kinds of stories which
are read by all the different kinds of students. The heavy and the light we treat
equally. We attempt to present the news
We like to think that everyone can find
something of interest in each issue. No one
reads everything that goes into the daily
UBC hospitality, yet pilfering their fellow
students' lockers, we would like to bring
to their attention that there are better ways
of making money than robbing students who
might be just as hard up.
Any student who hasn't enough, to him,
to pay his way through Varsity should leave
and devote his efforts to other things, more
suited to his talents. There are many examples of students who can earn their way
through Varsity without relying on what's
in the lockers of other students. We waste
no pity on this student-thief. We hope you
get what is coming to you, dismissal from
the ranks of those who look upon a thief as
one of the lower forms of mankind.
newspapers. A good many people read only
90 percent of the daily newspapers. Yet
everyone has a habit of reading certain parts
of these papers. It is the' same with our
paper, but on a much smaller scale.
A secondary aim of The Ubyssey is to
foster original writing at this University.
Our own staff takes advantage of this, but
few students outside of the Pub contribute
to our editorial page. We would like very
much to receive contributions. We have
been waiting patiently for them since the
beginning of the term.
Anybody who would like to take us up
on these offers can find us most any day of
the week in the north basement of the
Centralization of News Sources
(The Varsity, University of Toronto)
•   THERE HAS been vigorous controversy
recently over the age-old problem of
"freedom of the press". It is rather interesting to note that Associated Press have been
launching a campaign to uphold the affirmative of the topic. At the outset, it is-essential
to distinguish between freedom of the press
and freedom of information. Kent Cooper,
General Manager of Associated Press, argues
that equal access to news at the source, and
equality of availability of transmission facilities at uniform rates, would prevent systematic distortion and suppression of international news, and that without systematic perverting of international news it would be
extremely difficult to make war.
As long as there is equal access to news
when it happens, news cannot be systematically distorted along nationalistic lines.
Such a proposal would be an improvement
even if it were applied to the dissemination
of nation-wide news. A survey of the manner in which Canadian newspapers have
been handling the zombie question will adequately exemplify how straight facts can be
garbled to an almost incomprehensible as
well as biased condition.
The only difficulty involved would be
the fact that such a plan might possibly lead
to a centralization of news since it would
have to pass through one source. The policy
of the group in charge of that source would
direct the form in which the news would be
sent out. Where there are a number of independent sources competing for information, the possibility of censorship is not as
great as that which might be effected by a
' single body in control. Of course, if the
integrity of the source were assured, then
Mr. Cooper's plan would far out-weigh the
dangers of competitive reporting.
Fundamentally, the adoption of this
type of news transmission will require a tremendous amount of work before it could go
into effect. A start must be made, however,

And m this

which could be plucked off at will,

struck, and finally a flushed pro-

neatly paragraphed, punctuated,

The subject would of course be
something that had never been
written upon before. It would be
original, fresh, bright, timely, informative and would not give
people cause to remark cynically,
as they so often do, "This is a
waste of apace. I could do better
myself." .
Also it would be a subject
which would give the heavenly
columnist ample opportunity to
display his wide knowledge of current affairs and historical trends,
tolerant and sympathetic understanding of human affairs and social problems, and at the same time
his biting sarcasm and flashing
All this ia optomistlcally assuming, of course, that columnists,
linotype operators, editors, publishers, and compositors ultimately
go to heaven, and ls only a beautiful pale blue tinted daydream
gradually brought on by demoniac pressdays, sulky reporters, and
street car strike conditions which
generally tie activity in little un-
progresive knots.
Rock-bottom presents more earthly problems to columnists who
wouldn't be caught dead wearing
a halo anyway.
There are a few solutions.
A columnist can write a definite,
prejudiced piece on a controversial
topic and if he or she isn't a sensitive soul can Ignore the taunts,
sneers, and menacing hints of
horsewhipping and tar and feather
treatment offered by readers who
do not happen to agree with the
opinions expressed.
Or perhaps the columnist can
write a fluffy little article on some
trivial frothy subject and attempt
to bubble into print with sprightly humour in order to wrench the
subscribers mind away from the
war news. These are the times
when the cynics remark, "This ls
a waste of space."
Another solution is the "nothing"
column which happens to every
columnist and which every columnist tries to forget about as
soon as he is responsible—or perhaps the word is irresponsible—
for it. The columnist blandly begins by admitting that he has nothing to write about, writes about
nothing for several paragraphs,
and ends up apologizing to tho
"gentle reader." I myself have
never met a gentle reader.
The most lackadaisical and spontaneous solution of all and always
the most unreliable, is offered by
picking a book at random, opening
it at page twenty or at any other
favorite number and taking as the
column subject the third noun on
the page.
I tried this once. The book was
entitled "Sesame and Lillles," by
John Ruskln. The third noun on
page twenty was the word "column."
And so the columnist struggles
through life, buffeted about by
public opinion, haunted by inevitable deadlines, and seeing friends
drop off like flies one by one
with each controversial column.
And the saddest knowledge
which the columnist faces is that
each beloved column which he so
laboriously teased out of his typewriter will die an unglorious and
early death being used to light
fires or wrap up garbage by unfeeling householders.

their untimely death ln a plane
accident, the Alma Mater Society
decided to erect the Colonel Brock
Memorial Building.
Prior to this the society for women's buildings, of which former
Dean of Women Mary Bollert was
head, had raised a considerable
sum for a women's building. This
money was added to the Alma Mater Society fluid, and partially financed the Mildred Brock Room.
The Monday Arts Study Group,
of which Mrs. Brock was a member, donated Emily Carr pictures
to ornament the room.

Marks Not
Very Improtant
Says Professor
—Good news to public school
and college students came from
a Pennsylvania State College professor, who advised parents that
marks are not "the important
tiling" in determining a student's
"The true criterion for judging
a child's academic success," according to Mabel Kirk, associate
professor of education; "is not the
grades he earns but what he does
in the home and outside the school
with what he has learned In the
Miss Kirk warned parents
against placing too much emphasis
on grades, for, she explained,
some students can "cram" to make
high marks and still not know
much. She also discouraged the
award of money or other gifts for
high grades as giving "the student
a false sense of values and frequently encouraging cheating."
• THE OTHER day during a
stroll behind the Applied Science building I saw a mass of
shrubbery and flowers, beds of
seedlings, a frog pond, two totem
poles, and a sundial.
Wishing to check my watch I
walked to the sundial I looked
at it hard, and looked at it harder.
Still no better off than previously
I set out to circumnavigate this
new area.
I saw a man working in the
field and walked over to him.
It turned out that he was G.
D. Cave, the botanical gardener. I then suspected that these
were the Botanical Gardens. He
confirmed my suspicions.
Mr. Cave told me that these
plots are used by the senior zoology, botany, and biology students.
They take clippings of some plants
to their labs, while other plants
are merely used as hosts so the
plant-disease specialists can get
specimens of the Insects they want
The plants are divided into definite sections. The larger part are
called native plants, meaning, of
.course, those which naturally
grow in the B. C. area.
The name applied (to the other
part stumped me. They are labelled Exotic Plants. Mr. Cave explained this simply: "Exotic plants
are those which don't grow In B.
C. We have here plants from all
over Canada."    .
He then took me down to the
low end of the gardens, and
explained that, starting at that
end the plants are arranged ln
a gradual change from swampy
to desert habitat, each plant
being placed, insofar as possible, in the location which best
suits It.
As we worked up the exotic
garden we found the only plant
ln flower in the whole garden. I
looked at the name, but it meant
nothing to me. On the plaque
near It were the words "Kellebor-
us Niger." Cave kindly explained
to me that It was a Christmas rose.
At the top of this section we a-
gain passed the sundial.   It still
didn't check with my watch.
As we walked slowly down the
path next to the trees and shrubs
I was able to pick out many familiar plants.   Right next was a
cedar, a little farther down a rhododendron, a tamarac, a Douglas
fir, a spruce, and even the infamous plant of B.C.'s forest regions,
the "echlnopanoax horridus," more
commonly known and felt as the
Devil's Club.
We paid a brief visit to the
frog pond, but nothing was to
be seen there but water. The
frogs, apparently, are still
sleeping In.
I gave the totem poles due consideration. They are both quite
large, about fifteen feet high.
Both are figures of men, facing
in opposite directions. It seems
that the one on the right came originally from an Indian ceremonial house which was used only on
rare occasions. If any more of the
posts were like that particular one,
I can easily understand why.
Mr, Cave told me that that was
about all there was, so I thanked
* him and proceeded on my way.
I passed the sundial again. It still
didn't check.
And then it hit me.
It didn't check for two reasons:
One, the sun wasn't out, and two,
I didn't have a watch.
Josephine was getting on ln the
twenties and she was beginning to
despair of Pete's proposal. They
had been meeting at Hope Street
for their dates for almost a year
and a half. One night she suggested:
"We always meet on Hope Street,

"That's right," he admitted.

Lengthy Peace
Impossible" in
Free Enterprise
• TORONTO, Jan. 16-(CUP)—
The resolution thut permanent
peace cannot be achieved under
the capitalistic system was upheld
by a majority of three votes at the
session of the Interfaculty Debating Union held in Alumnae Hall,
Voctoria College recently.
The first speaker for the affirmative, Guy Mathurin, stated that
since profit motives predominate,
and since war requires money,
capital will not be advanced unless there is profit to be derived.
Hence capitalism will nurture war.
Harry Hodder, speaking for the
negative, contended that there
was no basis for associating the
tendencies for war, such as war
profiteering, expansion and imperialism, and protectivlsm, with capitalism. War was caused not by
those with capital but those without.
Stating that insecurity grew under capitalistic system, June
Wrong added that this made for
class conflicts which in turn lead
to national and international
Barbara Hood drew an analogy
between the capitalistic system and
the world community. She said
that the characteristics of both
are compatible.

according to LUKE MOYLS
•   TIME WAS when Varsity kids would pack any gym in
this town when a Blue and Gold club played, but is it
still so? I have yet to see. The students get a chance to prove
that they still have spirit within the next two weeks.
For within that period, the minor basketball league starts
its playoffs. And the whole point is, there will be three
Varsity outfits taking part in them.
As a matter of fact, the Intermediate B playdowns commenced Tuesday night down at the old King Edward stand.
But the Varsity crew for that division, Pete McGeer's Thunderbugs, don't get started for a few days yet.
The other two UBC quintets in minor circles are the
Thunderbees, coached by Vic Pinchon, and Art Johnson's
Big Chiefs, in the Intermediate A bracket. As yet, the dates
for these playoffs are not set.
Casaba Outfits Do Well
Now, these three clubs have done well so far this season.
As a matter of fact, they have performed excellently. The
Thunderbugs are second in the Inter B loop; the Thunderbees
are third among the Senior B's, and the Inter A Chiefs are
second in Senior A company.
But these same clubs have had very little in the way
of support from the student body. Only at the senior league
games have I seen any Varsity rooters to speak of, although
there has been the odd night when a few friends of the
Thunderbugs showed their faces at the King Ed emporium to
support their pals.
An example of the lack of support was Tuesday night's
game when the Thunderbees meet the rugged North Shore
Reds. Coming from behind to tie the score just before the
final whistle, the Bees made a good battle out of it through
sheer fight, but lost in overtime by a measely basket.
UBC Needs Rooters, Too
It was their own enthusiasm that drove them in the last
qurater, but they ran out of gas in the overtime period. But
a little bit of solid support might have stemmed them through
to victory.
The following game between Heather Cubs and Vancouver College, the first playoff tilt of the Inter B division,
was an illustration of what rooting can do for a team.
Both outfits had a strong supporting section, but the
Cub rooters outnumbered the College kids, and cheered their
team to victory. But it was not without a fight, for the Vancouver College supporters rooted their colorful club in a
last-quarter drive which had the Cubs worried.
If Varsity's numerous students only knew how much a
strong cheering section means to a team, they wouldn't hesitate in turning out in huge numbers to every UBC battle.
Or are the Varsity fnumphs and galumphs too busy with
their social-page headlirie*Muff to come out to an honest-to-
goodness game of clean sport?
• HOOP A LA RUGGER—Rumour has it that there will
be no such sight as the above for students this year. It
seems that those worthy inhabitants of the AMS office, which
is to be found somewhere in the Brock, they tell us, want
to bring out implements of torture in the way of hockey
sticks for this year's Pub-Council game, instead of staging
the usual basketball battle. Could it be that the "Dirty Nine"
think murder would be simpler in this cruelest game of
• COULD THEY BE SCARED?   Is their opposition too
strong?? What other reason could they have? Why should
the "Dirty Nine" want to change the annual Pub-Council
game from the traditional hoopla to this wild game which
the "weaker" sex indulges in, called hockey?
Yes, it seems that the members
, of this year'i council want to hold
the minor blood donation on a
graai field in the Stadium instead
of the hard maple courta of the
gym. Recently, Oeorge Rush, president of the MAA, proposed to
the mighty Editor of this esteemed
newspaper, J. T. Scott, that the
pubsters try to field a hockey
Of course, this would have its
advantages, for grass is not as
good a bone-breaker as the fine
quality maple in our gym. Yes,
there is only one solution. The
Council has been spending so many hours trying to find ways of
winning that they have decided
the only way is to bring in some
instrument with which they can
knock the Pubsters out of the
way in a more legal manner.
All this is the cause of great
pandemonium In the Pub. The
members of the staff feel that it
is not a good idea to break away
from tradition, particularly with
such a splendid hoopla team in
its ranks. Of course this is not
the point, for it matters not what
game is playod since only one
team can win, and it is obvious
which team tliat will be.
Take, for Irstancc, one Lucifer
Q. Moyls. Now here is a king of
all sports. He's just rather particular where he gets killed. Besides, hoopla is a more manly
sport and therefore a much more
fitting burial ground.
Then there is one more little
point.  It's not hard to fiiyl FIVE
men over six feet tall, but it
would be a Uttle harder to find
enough for a hockey contest.
However, do not let lt be said
that the members of the Pub are
cringing. We will play whatever
we are asked to—as long as we're
asked to play basketball.

Coeds Splash
At Swim Fest
• CO-ED water-babies take their
first plunge of the season
when they troup out en masse to
show off their aquatic skill Saturday evening at the YMCA.
The first event on the prograrh
will be a free style dash with one
representative from each faculty
swimming one length of the pool.
The next item is a honeymoon
race which should be well worth
seeing. The groom, attired in
slacks, shirt and hat swims the
length of the pool to obtain his
bride. The lucky woman, clad in
veil, long skirt.and carrying flowers then tows her exhausted mate
back to the starting point.
A shuttle relay, glove race, and
life saving race hold down third,
fourth and fifth places on the
card respectively.
Music lovers are In store for
a treat ln the pennant race,
when girls from each faculty
lustily sing words of "Hail
UBC" between mouthfuls of
water while carrying a pennant
between them.
The eighth and last event in this
gala evening will be a dive contest. Three dives must be prepared: a standing plain, an optional, and a comic plunge.
Each   woman   that   enters
scores Ave points toward her
Intramural award, and places
herself in running for a swim
cup to be awarded the girl aggregating the highest score during the evening.
Let's ge all Cut to make this
evening a huge success. However,
if the strike is still on, the party
will be postponed.
However, the grim battle
brought forth a new Varsity star
in the person of Bud Huyck, who
continued to amaze the spectators
with his u/iusual two-handed
Eastern style shots which managed
to swish through the hoop for 12
Pete McQeer, with the typical
one-handed Western style, sank 10
points for second score of the contest. Entertaining from start to
finish, the crucial tilt started off
well for the Reds, who piled up
a 10-7 lead by half time.
As the More Indicates, the
game was a little On the rough
side, with the inexperienced
Students getting the worst of
it. After the breather, however, the two clubs settled
down to shoot a few baskets
Instead of the regular elbowing, etc.
A basket and a free shot by big
Ches Pedersen put the Thunderbees on an even count with the
Reds, 10-all. From there in, the
margin between the two scores
was never greater than two points.
With 20 seconds left in the game,
the Students were on the trailing
end of a 35-33 count, but MoOeer
found the hoop for the tying score
a few ticks before the flnal whistle
to knot the battle.
The five - minute overtime
period featured a return to the
Stone Age. Basketball antics
reached extreme proportions as

.proceeded to give out with
every act of energy-wasting In
the books.
Somehow, the more sturdily built
Jimmy Spencer, better known to
Varsity's soccer squads, managed
to fling a shot towards one of the
hoops. By some queer stroke of
luck (for the Reds), the melon
came down through the Varsity
net to give North Van the game
by a 37-35 score.
The loss for Varsity cleared matters considerably for league officials. With a win, the Students
would have had a chance to make

Joe Intramural Busy Sports Promoter Around UBC Campus
• ONE OF the most interesting characters
on this campus is Joe Intramural. Little
Joe has frequented our Point Grey site for
many years, but according to him and those
who know him, last year was one of his best
seasons around UBC.
With 16 teams
competing in the various events, the enthusiastic players
turned out in goodly
numbers to engage in
the 11 sports featured
by Joe on last year's
As usual, basketball   was   one  of  Joe   Intramural's   main
sports. Joe spent two and sometimes three
periods a week with the boys in the gym as
they indulged in the gentle art of hoopla.
Little  Joe  drops
around   to   see   the
Kappa Sigs whenever
he's in a mood for basketball lore. As usual,
this fraternity's team
copped   the   casaba
championship  in last
year's competition.
Next   to   basketball, volleyball took most of Little Joe's
attention. It was quite a treat to watch Joey
batting the ball over the fish nets to the
greatest glee of all concerned.
Yes, Joe had quite a good year in that
department, too. The DU's (Delta Upsilon
to freshmen) came out on top in that league.
But this year, when the volleyball season
ended a few weeks ago, Little Joe announced that he considered himself a full cousin
of any Mu Phi.
, The third full
time occupation of Joe
Intramural was Touch
Football. Joe and his
cohorts had a little
trouble with this rugged outdoor sport last
year. They started it
off in the Fall, but had
to wait until Spring, when the weather became more suitable, before finishing it off.
Those high flying
Kappa Sigs walked
through the opposition in this field, too,
a s they slashed
through a double
knockout series t o
take Joe's blessing as
campus grid experts.
Of course, one of
the big moments in Little Joe's life is when
he gives out with the famed Cross Country
race. Joe finds it a hard life when you're
in training for this event. Getting to bed at
7 o'clock every night doesn't appeal to him,
but he says the trip to Spokane is worth it.
He confided that it is getting a little
tough to keep up with the gang now that
he is not getting any younger, and the pace
is getting a little faster each year. But he
figures he'll star on
the cinders again
when all the McPher-
sons have passed
through UBC.
Last year, Joe Intramural put on several   good   nights   of
badminton too. Joe ran this event off as a
double knockout series in the gym.   Although it was out of the hunting season, he
and his gang literally
slaughtered the birds
those nights.   Joe intends to get another
good bag this season
too, if the Street Car
Strike ever ends.
One of the most
pleasant nights that
Joey has every year is
spent in the YMCA pool. Little Joe says
that, next to the annual dunkings in the
Lily Pond, he likes the Spring Swim Meet
In spite of the limited seating capacity
at the pool, Joe's friends turn out in large
numbers to watch the annual affair.   Last
year, the Phi Kappa Sigs won the championship on total points.
And then Joe owns a bat and ball which
he hauls out of the
closet   every  Spring.
According   to    Joey,
softball   is   his   ideal
game. On fine days he
delights in the beautiful coeds  who come
to watch him perform.
My but he sure can
powder that mushball
then.   Incidentally, the 'Kappa Sigma boys
walked away with everything but the bases
in that event, too.
Finally, Joe Intramural rounded off the
year with a gala track
meet in the Stadium.
That was when Joe
pulled out his spikes
and shorts to show the
young sprinters a
thing or two. Joe
weakened in the last
stretch, however, as
the young Freshmen,
the Mu Phis, ran off with the track title.
So you see, Joe Intramural is quite a
busy character around these parts. Although
Joe has found his style cramped by the
Street Car Strike, he expects to get back to
work as soon as the University Bus gets
back on the job.
