Council To Seek Approval
Of NFCUS Link With IUS
Councillors Present Plebiscite;
Ask Meeting To Amend AMS Code

Forum Vetoes1 Baby Contest Sparks Drive
Annexation
With U.S.
If the Parliamentary Forum
is any gauge of public opinion,
Canada will not be annexed to
the United States in the near
future.
Thursday's resolution "that Canada
should be annexed to the United
States", was defeated by an almost
unanimous vote.
Leader of the Opposition, Dave Williams, pointed out that annexation to
the U.S. would force us to drink
American beer which has an alcoholic
content of five per cent less than
Canadian beer.
This apparently clinched the debate tor the crowd showed a marked
apathy towards government speakers who followed.
Other Opposition speakers suggested that the U.S. should join the
British Commonwealth of Nations.
This met with the approval of the
government.
Prime Minister Roger Paterson said:
"I quite agree with my worthy opponent that the U.S. should join tbe
British Commonwealth—but the move
should come after Canada's union with
the United States."
For Vet Nursery School
The presence on the UBC campus of veteran students for
the past two years has produced many innovations in both
academic and social circles, but next week UBC students will
i witness their first baby contest.
The diaper derby has been planned
by Little Mountain student veterans
in order to publicize their dance in
Brock Hall on Saturday, January 31.
Fond Little Mountain parents will
submit photographs of their infant
offspring to the office of the Daily
Ubyssey and semi-final choices will
be published in subsequent issues of
the paper.
The contest is limited to children
under two years. Next Friday a board
of judges consisting of the winning
Mardi Gras queen, and a member of
the faculty will do the cherub choosing. Committee members plan to ask
Mrs. C. Jones, wife of Vancouver's
mayor, to act as a third judge.
The contest and dance have been
planned in order to raise funds for
a nursery school and kindergarten
in the Little Mountain Camp for
which the University has contribut
ed $500.
Parents are asked to submit photographs to Put 7 at the Camp and
for those who have no suitable pictures, arrangements can be made to
have Daily Ubyssey photographers
come to the Camp and take them.
VIOLINIST Harry Adaskin,
Music department head, Sunday night will present the program he intends to give in New
York next month. Taking place
in Brock Hall at 8:30 p.m., the
recital is open only to students
and faculty.
VETERANS'
HOUSING
Student veterans who have filed
applications of accommodation in
Acadia or Fort Camps since September are asked to check with the
office of the Housing Administrator, Administration building, today.
Failure to do so may affect applications, since rooms becoming vacant will be filled as soon as possible.
Editor, Educator
To Lecture Here
Contributing editor to "New Republic" and editorial board member
of Penguin Books, Inc., Dr. Eduard C.
Lindeman, noted American educator
and writer and professor of Social
Philosophy at the New York School
of Social Work (Columbia University)
will be a special lecturer at UBC next
month.
Dr: Lindeman is to give afternoon
lectures to students on February 3
and 4, on "Communities of the Future
. . . Outline of Goals", and "Social
and Economic Planning ... an Outline of Methods."
He has published a number of books
on social problems including the first
book on the subject in the United
States: "The Meaning of Adult Education."
Dr. Lindeman is also president of
the board of trustees of the National
Child Labor Committee in the U.S.
and president for New York State of
the Americans for Democratic Action.
Council will ask student approval of its decision to favor
NFCUS affiliation with the IUS when members of the Alma
Mater Society assemble for a special general meeting in the
Armory at 11:30 today. ♦"
From the chair, President Grant
Livingstone will outline the nature of
the International Union of Students
and the reasons why Council wishes
to cast an affirmative vote regarding
the joining of the organization by the
National Federation of Canadian University Students, in which Livingstone
is a representative of UBC.
The resolution of which Council
will ask approval is published below. An editorial discussion of the
question will be found on Page two.
SEEK AMENDMENT
Council will also ask the amendment
to two articles of the AMS Code, one
which, if approved, will allow inter-
university affiliation of political clubs.
If the other Code amendment is
passed, the position of chairman of
USC will then be open to juniors as
well as seniors.
REPORTS
Also on the agenda are two reports
from UBC delegates in recent conferences. Bob Currie, chairman of the
International Student Serice, will report on the recent conference and activities of ISS and its plans for the
future.
A second report will come from the
chairman of the NFCUS committee
on their conference this winter. Discussions will follow each of these
reports.
Arrangements are being made for
the cancellation of all 11:30 lectures
today.

Songstress Present's
Recital Wednesday
Miss Marion Inglis, talented young
Victoria artist, will present a program of songs in Brock Hall on
Wednesday, January 28 at 8 p.m.
The concert, sponsored by the
Musical Appreciation Club, will feature the vocal offerings of Miss Inglis accompanied by Max Edwards at
the piano. Mr. Edwards will also
offer a selection of piano solos.
Chick Turner .
Candidate
For Co-ordinator
Chick Turner, 3rd Year Honors
student in Arts, former Sports Editor of The Daily Ubyssey and of last
year's Totem, was the first to enter
the battle for the position of Coordinator of Activities on the Students
Council, when he filed his papers on
Wednesday.
Turner, always active in the sports
line, is the holder of the Canadian.
Senior Championship 220 yd. sprint
and the 100 and 220 Junior Canadian
Championship. He was a deciding
influence on the track team which
won its first PNWC title last May
24 and at present, he is Canada's
hope for this year's Olympic trials.
During his activities on the Pub
and the Totem, Chick became "keenly interested in student affairs," and
it was this interest which led him
to run during the coming elections.
Besides his social and sports activities, Chick is an active member of
URS on which he has a weekly
program.
Published below is the resolution
of affiliation of NFCUS with the
International Union of Students passed by a majority vote of 14-4 at the
NFCUS national conference in Winnipeg December 31, 1947, and referred to constituents' student councils
and student assemblies for approval.
WHEREAS: It is desirable, worthy
and practical for NFCUS to be a member of a world student union, dedicated and limited to, and capable of,
fulfilling the common needs and aims
of university students throughout the
world and of promoting understanding
and good will between them.
WHEREAS: The International Union of Students is presently constituted
as a world student union having as its
members many existing National Unions of Students.
WHEREAS: I.U.S. has not limited
itself to the above purposes, but on
the contrary, has participated in political objective which were neither for
the specific benefit of students as such
nor for the safeguarding of their basic
rights; in these two strictly limited
fields, political activity, by a broad
definition of the word political, could
be justified.
WHEREAS: This has led to inequitable judgements and conflicts on
partisan political lines, within and con
cerning I.U.S., thus destroying the
prestige and support of I.U.S., and its
ability to perform its true functions.
WHEREAS: These partisan political conflicts have arisen chiefly from
two major causes namely:
1. The fact that partisan political
activities have not been specifically excluded by the constitution, but have on
the contrary formed a major portion
of the I.U.S. resolutions and actions;
they will continue inevitably as a major
feature of I.U.S. until the basic rights
of the students, as well as their legitimate and specific interests which
demand non-partisan political action
have been defined and all other political activities have been excluded.
2. The fact that the constitution
does not provide adequate criteria for
fair rational determination of eligibility
for membership and number of delegates; to this fact can be traced much
of the misrepresentative politically-
purposed chicanery chiefly of th'e communist faction which obstructed and
discredited I.U.S. to date; those seeking
to use I.U.S. for political propaganda
purposes instead of world student purposes would severely but justly curbed by a truly representative assembly
and council.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED.
(a)    That N.F.C.U.S. join the International Union of Student conditionally
for a period of two years, the conditions
to be:
1. The clear definition of its
legitimate political activities embracing
basic rights of student and means of
gaining purely student objectives by
non-partisan political action and the
total, constitutional exclusion from it
of all other political activities and purposes.
2. The establishment of an equitable system of representation.
(b) That if these conditions of affiliation have not been achieved at the
end of this two year period, or at such
intermediate date as the Canadian
delegation, with the consent of the
Executive Committee may determine,
N.F.C.U.S. hereby commits itself not
merely to disaffiliate—but further to
actively promote the formation of an
alternative world student union which
will satisfy the true functions of such
a union as defined above. Towards this
end, N.F.C.U.S. reserves the right to
disaffiliation without the required
notice of one year.
(c) That because of the N.F.C.U.S.
constitution which states that decisions
of N.F.C.U.S. cannot bind its constituent members, the decisions of IU.S.
cannot and shall not be binding in any
way on N.F.C.U.S.
Poor Health' Forces Basil
To Give Up Treasury Race
For the second time in as many years the treasurer of the
Alma Mater Society may be elected to the post by acclamation.
The situation has arisen again this*-
year with the announcement that
Doug Basil is withdrawing his name
from the running.
Thus Jerry MacDonald, president of
the Literary and Ecient'ific executive
is now the only other nominee for the
position. Unless some other name is
put up before the deadline on Wednesday, January 28 he will be elected
to the office by acclamation.
HARWOOD'S POST
The same situation occurred last
year when Bob Harwood took over
the treasury without a contest after
his only rival John Fleming withdrew
from the race.
In announcing his withdrawal from
the running, Basil gave two reasons.
Ever since his discharge from the
army more than a year ago Basil has
been receiving hospital attention at
Shaughnessy for a chest condition.
Officials have warned him not to
undertake any activities that would
impair his health.
Also, since he is taking honours in
Commerce he feels that he will not
have the time required by the post.
"When someone first suggested that
I run for the position," he stated,
"the idea appealed to me very much
and I consented to have my name
put  up."
SECOND THOUGHT'
"However after thinking the- matter
over more fully I find that my health
and studies would not allow me to
do justice to this very important;
office."
"In the meantime," he concluded,
"I would like to thank those who
nominated me for the post and wish
Jerry MacDonald the best of luck in.,,
the coming election."
Faith Council
Gives Lectures
"Religious Emphasis Week," a
series of lectures by well known
Vancouver religious leaders, will be
presented next week by the UBC
Inter-Faith   Council.
The lectures are designed to give
students an opportunity to investigate the individual faiths of the
clubs represented on the council and
to try to provide the answer to the
problems of today's university student.
The series will be held in the
Auditorium at noon Monday through
Friday and will be addressed by
such religious leaders as Dr. McCall
of St. Andrews Wesley Church,
Rabbi David C. Kogen of the Beth
Israel Synagogue and Dr. Kiss, eminent  scientist.
Also planned is a panel discussion
of the individual faiths to be held
in Brock Hall lounge, Wednesday
at 3:30 p.m.
Schedule for the lectures is to tie

COUNCIL ASKS A QUESTION
Today at 11:30 in the UBC Armoury the
student body will make a decision directly
affecting 70,000 university students in Canada
and more than 2,200,000 students representing
42 nations from every point of the globe.
The Student Council will ask general
student approval for the conditional affiliation
of the National Federation of Canadian University Students with the International Union
of Students on a two-year trial basis.
The conditions of the affiliation are clearly set forth in the actual resolution to be
balloted, published on page one.
Students, or in some cases student representative councils, from 20 other Canadian
Universities are currently considering the
same resolution.
The results of the national poll will determine whether or not the Canadian delegation
takes the resolution to Prague next summer
to negotiate the affiliation.
The problem of the affiliation is no easy
one to settle. It is probably one of the most
contentious to rock Canadian campuses since
the Canadian Student Assembly was forced to
disband in the early years of the war . . .
but that is another story.
In a paragraph IUS would run something
like this: emerged in 1946" as the product of a
movement undertaken by the London International Students' Conference in 1945 . . .
purports   to   represent   university   student
unions from 42 nations. As an organization
only two years of age it's accomplishments
can hardly be assessed. It's current aims,
however, include world scholarships, free
interchange of ideas and information between
universities, intellectual cooperation; and in
the more contentious sphere, democratization
of universities in Germany and China.
That IUS is essentially communist-dominated there is little doubt. There is also little
doubt that this tendency may shadow their
interpretation of such problems as democratization when they are unwilling to define the
word fully. Fact is that IUS is now in a
position to become a potent political lobbying
machine, if it has not already done so.
The intention of the conditional affiliation
scheme is presumably not to attempt a thoroughgoing house-cleaning, which would be
impossible, but rather to establish at least a
structure of democratic procedure so that
communist and non-communist factions could
work together to achieve some of the highly
worthwhile projects now on the drafting
boards.
This is the essential crux of the problem
which the student body must rule on at
Friday's meeting. We must decide whether Dr
not the Canadian delegation can successfully
bring IUS to the point where it can work
effectively as a world student body. The Daily
Ubyssey thinks it can be done.

ED. NOTE: In keeping with the policy
of the Daily Ubyssey, the editors have no
part in selecting topics for nor interfering
with opinions expressed by columnists. The
editors are not necessarily in agreement
with some of the unqualified statements in
the column printed herein.
LIVINGSTONE SEES RED
Before Grant Livingstone gets around to
confiscating Red sweaters from Sciencemen
and eyeing with suspicion any co-ed wearing
Red nail polish, I think it only fair to him to
present the true motives behind his recent
mud-slinging contest with admirers of the
LPP.
As you probably know, his opponents
included:
1. Thirteen Red-minded Legion members who apparently aren't superstitious
enough to get a fourteenth.
2. Their "fellow-travellers" who would
like to go places on the LPP ticket.
3. Sundry unfortunate individuals who
don't know enough to stay home on muddy
days.
And now my analysis: It seems that both
Mr. Livingstone and his foes want an increase
in veterans' grants. The latter indicated that
wish by saying so, and Mr. Livingstone, who
is far too subtle for most of us peasants to
understand, indicated a similar wish by fighting the proposal,
However, there is every likelihood that
Mr, Livingstone will be less tactical and more
practical about his wishes, as soon as he can
prove that he thought of the idea first.
Meanwhile he does not wish to embarass
Mr. MacKenzie King or Mr. Douglas Abbott
by talking money matters. Furthermore, Mr.
Livingstone likes to think of the non-financial
joys of being a student leader while getting
his AMS fees paid.
LIVINGSTONE HATES MONEY
"Personally," says Mr. Livingstone, "I
hate money," Mr, Livingstone denies that by
the term "money" he refers only to the old
Russian ruble.
Mr. Livingstone also hates mud. He just
likes throwing it around a little. As a matter
of fact, Mr. Livingstone gets so keen a delight
#from such parlor pastimes he has devised
several variations of Old Party games.
In addition to the engaging activity of
tossing handfuls of rich, black soil at poor,
Red objects, Mr. Livingstone suggests that
you also try these exciting, new games:
"Pinning the Hammer and Sickle on the
Donkey"—Two or more can play. A sidesplitting novelty if the sickle is properly used.
More fun if participants employ their hammers on each other.
"Button,   Button,   Who's   Wearing   the
Button?"—More than 72 can play. Only supporters of free enterprise are allowed buttons.
The object of the game is to see how many
buttons these people can find on other participants. The fun really begins when contestants
start ripping all sorts of buttons off each
other, and the whole game becomes downright
indecent.
AND FOR HIM, NO TREES
"Little Red Hunting Time"—Mr. Livingstone plays the part of a big bad wolf who
'lives in a forest which he can't see for the
trees. The object of the game is for him to
get as many people as possible to bite, but he
is allowed to use only Red bait.
"Hunt the Witch"—Probably his favorite
of them all, this game not only has provided
endless hours of amusement for the AMS
president, but proves that in spite of what his
opponents say, Mr. Livingstone is not a son
of a witch.
I should make it clear that Mr. Livingstone offers these suggestions in a friendly
spirit of goodwill and sincerity, probably
hoping to gain favor in the coming general
elections of the AMS.
The fact that he won't be running in the
elections doesn't worry Mr. Livingstone in
the slightest. After all, he didn't run for the
office of Chief Witch-Hunter last spring. But
he got in. We are now looking forward eagerly
to see what office Mr. Livingstone won't be
running for next. And more eagerly to see
if he gets in.
THE EDITOR
SPEAKS
The  march  is  on.
At UBC students are being
besieged and battered with the
cries of "red", "affiliate", "don't
affiliate", "who to elect . . .
But the march is on.
Council rolls up its sleeves
and prepares to engross itself
in the mass of details attendant
upon Homecoming.
But the march is on.
The Legion prepares to petition the government for a cost-
of-living bonus.
But the kiddies out at the
Crippled Children's Hospital
aren't petitioning for a cost-of-
living bonus. They aren't even
petitioning.
The march is on. You've
guessed it — the March of
Dimes, And now is the time to
make those dimes march.
Greek or non-Greek, Arts,
Science, Commerce and Aggie,
even women may contribute.
Remember, it's good to give
—especially when you know
that you have helped some tot
to toddle again.
Vancouver citizens and not
watchbirds are watching you.
Let's do it up big with our own
march of dimes—a mile of
dimes around Brock Hall
lounge should do for a starter.
Boy! Copy! Get upstairs with
this dime and don't drag your
feet.
How about some donation
tins at the AMS meet today?

THE PARTY LINE
by Archie Kqgrio
HIUERISM MARCHES ON
ED. NOTE: Students are Invited
to contribute to this Friday feature
of political discussion, handing hi
muterial in double-spaced, typed
form whenever possible. Comments
on these articles should be addressed to the writer rather than
to the Editor, but will be handled
through the regular Letters to the
Editor column.
If a man could express in a
musical manner the present phase
in our political history, he would
certainly produce a stirring composition. His song, of course,
would be about communism, and
his chorus would include most of
the press and radio, employers
organizations and political parties,
a sprinkling of fascists and a
smattering of social-democrats.
Their voices would be discordant
at certain points, but in thunderous unison at the finale: am'i-
communism.
THAT LITTLE MAN
As a single Canadian sitting
amid the noise, my mind is carried back to the little man who
did more for the song than any
other, for he provided the theme.
In his day he sang louder than
all the rest, and had a much
grander chorus. His name was
Adolph Hitler — remember?
The trouble with Hiller was
that, in later years, he added a
few stanzas to his song that the
chorus didn't like, and they turned
against him, vented their professional wrath upon him, and denounced him as a stinker. But
his song goes marching on.
Something should be said about
this Song-Hit of the Century.
Unlike most of the hits there is
very little about love in it. Most
of it's verses are anti-semitic,
anti-Negro, and anti-Trade Union,
although each one carries something nice about freedom and
democracy, so that nearly anyone
can sing it. The chorus is definitely ami-communism. This is the
clincher and it is here that all and
sundry join in.
. , . Here in Canada the Crusade
has been a popular theme song ,
for many years, but only now,
with the deafening roar from
press, radio and politicians, has
it become impossible to ignore.
Already it has caused interesting
changes     in     our   political    life.
Again, as in Europe, there are
signs of that strange type of harmony, that settling of political
differences, that newly-found kinship between former enemies. For
an example we need not go further than The Daily Ubyssey. Let
us take the case of Parzival Coops.
CLASS CONSCIOUSNESS
Coops believes he's a socialist'.
He will contend that he is a class-
conscious individual, willing to
take the side of the exploited class
in their battle with the exploiters.
He will insist that he is a staunch
ant'i-fascist. Furthermore he will
scoff at the charge that he can be
fooled into hunting a non-existent
witch.
But Coops has an ear for music,
and it inevitable that he found
himself humming the number one
Song on the hit parade. He was
hearing it so ofi'en. It was not
inevitable but unfortunate that he
began believing it. Before long
the Song had him in such a state
of mind that he decided to write
an article to The Daily Ubyssey.
LEADING ROLE
The socialists, he insisted, should
be given a leading role part in the
Anti-Communist Crusade. He believes they have a stronger voice
and a deeper faith in the cause.
He chided the capitalists for not
realizing that socialists are as
much a part of the Crusade as
they.   One big happy family.
He deplored the fact that capitalists were not informing the
people that socialists were in the
fight along with the others. A
pitiful sight he presented, crying
beseechingly for cooperation from
his former enemies. But he displayed real manliness in his denunciation of communism. His
words would harmonize well with
those of Franco, de Gaulle or
Chiang Kai Shek.
Which just goes to show what
can be done with the song Hitler
wrote.'

Medical, Dental Schools
On Par Says Pre-Dent
Al Marshall wasted no time in griping at the amount of
publicity the projected medical school is getting when the
university needs a dental wing every bit as urgently. "It's rotten
to the teeth," said he.

Applications are invited from scientists and students

IT'S amazing how many times you hear "I wish I could
smoke a pipe"... especially when the solution is so
very simple. Having decided to smoke a pipe it's best to
start off with a Burley tobacco. It will keep your tongu*
cool, and once you light up it stays lit.
Picobac is the pick of the Burley crop,
grown in sunny southern Ontario.
Al is in third year pre-dental and
because UBC offers no dental training he has found it necessary to
write no less than sixteen dental
schools in the United States trying
to  gain  admission.
Born at Swift Current, Saskatchewan, in 1922, Al has wended his way
westward until now he has his regular seat in the Caf with the Delta
Upsilon Fraternity.
SWIPES PLANE
This signal success, though he
claims it beneficial (fingering his
bottle opener) hasn't afforded him
as much excitement as the time he
"pinched" a Tiger Moth in the
RCAF and soloed on his own hook.
Al was a wireless operator for three
and   one   half   years.
Not only did I find Al an interesting conversationalist, but also I
discovered that he has a real athletic and sportman's bent. Al enjoys
fishing and hunting and when I met
him "On the Quad" he was in fact on
his way to play football.
WOMEN   IMMORAL
Two men can't talk too long without getting onto the subject of
women. Personally, I haven't drawn
any conclusions but Al thinks that
women are invariably more immoral
than men.
At this point Al became less interested in football, I decided to
miss a lecture, and since then I have
censored and rewritten this column
three times. A good interview, Al!

... By HAL, MURPHY
SPORT DYNAMITE
For two years rugby coach Roy Haines had built up the
Thunderbird Rugger team, and for two years the squad raced
through the McKechnie Cup series and ended up as the best
team in British Columbia. Haines went farther—he arranged
international tilts with Dr. Miles Hudson of the University
of California, and the 'Birds proved themselves to be a first
class squad when they took the series with the Golden Bears.
But the passage of time, and the weight of -his job, which
kept Haines busy as an English instructor, forced the popular
coach to limit his activities, and a new coach—Albert Laithewaite—was appointed last year to take over the reins' of
leadership.
Almost as soon as the new rugby head had arrived the
first McKechnie Cup game of this year was played, and the
'Birds (still sporting most of last year's lineup) romped through
the Vancouver Reps and were on the win wagon again.
And now with a minor setback to stiffen them (the Victoria
game can be interpreted in no other way) Laithewaite's 'Birds
are poised on the threshold of a great new season.
Rugger King Laithewaite
With little or no fanfare Laithewaite slipped smoothly into
the head coach slot. And quietly he has been building up the
Haines originals and a handful of newcomers into a squad
that many persons believe is a natural "dream team".
Today, the Laithewaite crew is preparing for one of the
most ambitious schedules ever undertaken by a UBC team.
Not only are Vancouver Reps and Victoria Crimson Tide
invited to the Stadium, but two outstanding international squads
are scheduled to appear on the campus. Both the University
of California Golden Bears and the world touring Australian
all-star Wallabies will appear at Point Grey. And to top off
this local display the 'Birds will perform at least twice in
California.
All this activity may come as a surprise to many students
who thought that the football season ended in December. But
we fasten to point out that English Rugby is played at least
seven months of the year, and has many more participants on
the campus than American Grid.
Far from being a dying sport, English Rugby is apparently
growing in popularity, and the importance of the sport was
underlined when Laithewaite was made a member of the
faculty and became the first imported coach in the Physical
Education Department. The "powers that be" were hailed as
being extremely farsighted in approving this appointment, and
sports enthusiasts, both on and off the campus, noted the move
with gratification.
Will It Be Overseas?
Meanwhile Laithewaite is kept busy directing the half dozen
Rugger squads which play for the Blue and Gold. His 'Birds
are set for the heavy grind, which will see them busy every
week for the next two months—and Laithewaite is keeping his
eye on the Wallabie game scheduled for March 3. He expects
it to be the big test of the year.
Results of the game may indicate whether or not the 'Birds
are good enough for overseas play. The Ruggermen are wondering if a trip to England is possible—Laithewaite, realizing the
the season would be just right in the southern hemisphere, is
wondering about a summer cruise to Australia.
No matter what happens, however, the Thunderbirds and
coach Laithewaite are rated by many to be one of the best
combinations ever to represent the Blue and Gold. To this
observation we are inclined to agree.
ubc chiefsTake
fourth straight
By CHUCK MARSHALL *
For the second time in as many starts, the UBC Chiefs and
New Westminster Luckies were forced to look to overtime for
a decision in one of their Senior-A tilts. This time however the
mocassin was on the other foot, and when the smoke had
finally cleared away the Students were the proud possessors of
a 63-58 win.
In their last meeting these same
two squads battled to a 50-50 tie in
regular time and then the Fraser-
town men went ahead to take the
contest 58-56. Later the match was
thrown out by league officials because of improper timing.
EARLY LEAD
With this in mind the Chieftans
made no mistake as they took the
lead early in the first quarter and
then stayed out in front until the
last few minut'es of play.
Letting down their defence a little
in 'the fourth canto the Indians allowed the charging Luckies to pull
abreast so that at the end of regular
time the score was knotted at' 49 all
Going into the extra session, Chiefs
once   again   pulled   up   their   socks
to   outscore   the   Luckies   14-9   and
take the game.
BADLY HANDLED
Due to sloppy refereeing the contest was one of the roughest affairs
seen in the Senior-A league this
year. The slap of flesh on flesh was
drowned out' only hy the continuous
booing of in.sensed spectators who
repeatedly showed their disapproval
of the way in which the game was
handled,
The win against the league leading
Luckies gave the Chiefs their fourth
straight    victory    and    started    them
thinking about moving out of the
third place position which they have
held for several weeks now. Their
next important contest will be next
Wednesday night when they meet
the Clover Leafs on the UBC maples.
THREE WAYS
Student scoring honours were split
three ways this time as Freddie Bossons, Art Phillips and Robin Abercrombie collected 14 points apiece.
Mosdell, with 13 counters, was high
man for the losers.
Campus Turfmen
Play Saturday
Men's grass hockey will be an all-
University show this Saturday when
UBC tangles with Varsity on the
University campus.
Varsity is expected to provide the
stiffest competition that UBC has
run up against this season. However,
UBC is rated a slight favorite now
that starry fullback Mai MacDonald
is back in their ranks after a sickbed bout. Followers of the league
are waiting the first showing of
Varsity's three new players, touted
by officials a.s capable of bolstering
the Varsity roster just enough to
give them an edge over their University competition.
WATCH IT! — Action such as that shown above will be repeated in the UBC Gym this weekend when the Thunderbirds play host to Seattle College. Game time, both Friday and Saturday,
is 8 p.m.
Bffxfs|7o Meet Seattle
In Weekend Basketball
UBC's basketballing Thunderbirds will once again see action on their home maples this
weekend when they meet Seattle College in a return series slated for the UBC Gym on Friday
and Saturday night.
Seattle College, last year's championship squad in the Washington
Inter-Collegiate Conference, will be
here to play the 'Birds in the return
two-game series of this season. The
Blue and Gold swept the first series
which was played in Seattle, taking
both games by scores of 59-58 and
40-28.
'BIRDS DROP WHITMAN TILT
UBC, meanwhile, has been experiencing difficulties on their road trips.*
Wednesday night the 'Birds dropped
their second straight contest, bowing
to Whitman College Missionaries 54-
48. The loss seriously affects the
Thunderbird hopes of capturing the
PNWIC hoop crown for this season,
and drops them into third place behind the league-leading Willamette
squad and the second place Puget
Sound Loggers,
PORTLAND NEXT
Next weekend will see the Portland University Pilots meet the
campusmen in the UBC Gym. The
Pilots, a powerful, independent
squad, have compiled an impressive
record this season, and will give the
'Birds one of their toughest series
of the year.
Thunderbirds, UBC
Play at Brockton
English Rugger stays in the
limelight tomorrow afternoon
as Brockton Oval plays host to
two campus squads. Tisdall
Cup play will continue with the
Meralomas kicking off against
the hard pressing UBC team,
while Ex-South Burnaby will
face the McKechnie Cup contenders, Thunderbirds.
Thunderbirds, currently prepping
for the next important tilt which
will see Victoria Crimson Tide at
the Stadium, are expected to have a
good workout' at the expense of the
South Burnaby fifteen. The South
Burnaby crew will be playing as a
result of a "by" in the Tisdall games.
After their smashing 13-0 victory
over Rowing Club last weekend
the UBC fifteen is expecjted by
campus fans to roll up its second
win over 'Lomas,
Thunderbirds will   kick  off  at  the
Stanley   Park   field   at   2   while   the
second  tilt  of  the  day  is  slated  for
3 p.m.
SECOND   DIVISION
Out at Douglas East Park several
second division rugger matches are
scheduled. An all student game will
see Varsity Sophomores up against
another campus squad, the Engineers.
Game time is slated for 2 p.m.

park with an Ex-Britannia third
division fifteen. Game time will also
be 2 p.m,

Andrew Stars
Against Alta
Puck Squad
By FRED MOONEN
Lethbridge Native Sons showed why
they are rated as strong contenders
for Memorial Cup honours when they
trounced a White Spots-UBC all star
team 5-3 at the Forum last Wednesday night.
Sparked by the playing of Eddie
Dorohoy and Fred Manson, the Sons
racked up a 3-0 lead in die second
period, only to see the fighting All-
Star club come back to tie it up
in the same canto on goals by Mirtle,
Andrew and Harrison.
From there on, however, it was all
Lethbridge as they poured rubber
at goalie Roy Worrall in a constant
stream, scoring two goals in the final
canto for their winning margin.
Four Thunderbirds combined to
give a great performance for the
all star club, with the line of Fred
Andrew, Hass Young and Hugh
Berry displaying plenty of drive, as
well as netting one goal, the prettiest
of the localites three.
Midway through the sandwich session Young snared the" puck at
centre ice, out ska ted the defence and
laid a hard shot on Rodzinyak's pads.
The Lethbridge net-minder couldn't
control the sizzling drive and the
puck bounced out to Hugh Berry
who supped a short pass to Andrew
and the crafty centreman pushed the
puck into the bottom corner of the
cage.
Andrew was one of the outstanding
players on the ice throughout the
game, sharing the spotlight with Eddie Dorohoy. Both patrolled the
centre-ice lanes and while the Lethbridge lad is a more polished stick-
handler, Andrews' forechecking and
'both-ways' play won favoring comments from fans throughout the arena.
These four all-stars will be reunited with the rest of the 'Bird
team when the campus puckchasers
journey to New Westminster for a
game with the league leading Cubs.
Game time is 1:30 and the place,
Queen's Park arena in New Westminster.
