CAMPUS ROMANCE blossomed into a campus wedding Monday when UBC student Leon Lipson exchanged vows with
raven-haired Tony Palker, his university sweetheart from
McGill. The first wedding ceremony to be held on the UBC
campus was solemnized by Rabbi D. C. Kogen, director of the
Hillel Foundation, in simple rites at the Hillel clubrooms near
Brock Hall.

UBC student Leon Lipson has been playing hookey for n

UBC's parking lot will be invaded Friday by a score
of co-ed "car-hops" equipped with pails and rags to give
students' car windows a quick shine.
The auto "clean-up" drive is part of a Phrateres campaign to raise money for charitable works.
Other groups of Phrateres members have offered to
"mother" students by darning socks.

His bride was pretty Tony Palker,
from Montreal, who exchanged vows
with her UBC fiancee at 5 p.m, in
simple ceremonies held at Hillel House,
Jewish students' clubrooms near
Efrock Hall.

Miss Palker was night editor of the
student paper and Lipson, as she
puts it, "just a lowly cub reporter.''
The romance continued while the
two were separated. Lipson made
three trips across the continent to
see her, and proposed, she says,
"hundreds of times."
"I never did say 'yes,''' she confessed. "He just took it for granted."
The raven-haired bride was visibly
nervous as she talked to a reporter
before the ceremony. "But I'm not, '
said Lipson, tearing a piece of paper
into small bits and showering them
on the floor.
After a short honeymoon, the location of which is a closely guarded
secret, the groom intends to get right
back to his studies.
"A continuous honeymoon," said
the bride. "He promised me." "But,"
she warned, "I insist that he returns
to lectures soon."
Knowledge Prerequisite
To Peace, States Odegard
Spread of knowledge throughout the world is the first
prerequisite to world peace in the opinion of P. H. Odegard,
President of Reed College.        * _
"Of the billion or so people of the
world less than one quarter can even
read," he told delegates to the Northwest Universities International Relations Conference in an address Friday.
"With conditions such as that how
can we expect peace?" he asked. 'In
the United States with its 2,000 daily
papers, its 10,000 weekly papers, its
5,000 periodicals, its 1,000 broadcasting
stations and its 20,000 movie houses
a recent survey showed that 23 percent of men and 41 per cent of women
did not even know what the UN,
Britain, and Russia were."
"If I had my way we would spend
100 million dollars a year on teaching
the peoples of the world to read and
we would spend another 100 million
on fostering exchange of students between Europe and America."
"We must stop thinking that we
ran sell Democracy the way we sell
cigarettes and toilet soap," he continued. "We must establish « faith
in the truthfulness of our government. To think that you can have
government officials making irresponsible statements is to play fast and
loose with democracy."
"We must choose between dealing
with the mind of man or dealing with
him viscerally in the manner of the
nauseating American tobacco commercials.'
"If we are to build our house upon
a rock we must build the informational policy of our government upon
truth. To do otherwise is to build
our house upon the sands."
Canada's present political system and constitution "contain
the seeds of greatness" in that they guarantee the three cardinal
blessings of freedom, opportunity and equality.
That was the message delivered by
Davie Fulton, Progessive-Conserva-
tive member of parliament for Kamloops and national leader of the
Young Progressive-Conservatice Federation, to a noon-day audience Monday.

Problems of racial discrimination

present a series of three speakers on

Bernard Livergant was elected to
fill the vacant post of SPC secretary.

"It is sometimes fashionable to
blame all of our ills on 'the system'
when the fact is that we are just not
bothering to work at it" the Progressive-Conservative  member  declared.
"One of the things that the study
of psychology teaches us is that the
normal, well-adjusted individual can
adapt himself to his enviroment. You
must consider whether there is not
some degree of neuroticism in those
who, instead of trying to adapt themselves, seek rather to overturn all
of our political system as a cure for
their ills," he declared.
Bracken Trophy
Judges Appointed
Judges in tlie annual Bracken
Trophy competition for Canadian college newspapers were announced last
week by Hugh Maccaulay, national
president of the Canadian University
Press and editor-in-chief of the University of Western Ontario Gazette.

Expectation Of Fare Increase
Prompts Latest Student Action
High-school privileges for students using Vancouver streetcar lines and the university bus line will be sought in negotiations
which are to begin between the B.C. Electric and UBC Student
Council. *	
Student Council opeued 'the way for
the negotiations Monday night when
it formally asked that the BCER
abandon the present system of standard fares in the light of expected increases in streetcar fares on city lines.
Students using both streetcars and
busses now pay a seven cent fare
for rail transportation and a three-
cent fare for the university bus line,
which runs outside the Vancouver
city limits.
High-school students have until now
travelled on city lines with bluo
tickets which cost them 25 cents for
eight rides. Meanwhile B. C. Electric
officials have not yet revealed whether
or not the special rate will be increased.
Some sources predicted a six-ticke^-
for-25-cents scale.
Application for a straight 10-cent
streetcare fare on city lines was made
to the Public Utilities Commission
by the company last week.
The resolution asking for high-school
privileges  was  presented  to  Council
by  student  President  Grant  Livingstone.
Livingstone told councillors that
students at university, especially veterans, had suffered from cost of living
increases and would be hard pressed
by the BCER fare increase.
Livingtsone declared that UBC's
transportation committee had met
with "sympathetic and co-operative
response from officials of the BCER"
during earlier negotiations for improved transportation.
"I hope that this submission will
meet with tlie same spirit of consideration and co-operation on the
part of the company," he said.
"If the proposal is not accepted,
Livingstone warned, Council is prepared to carry its case right up to
the Public Utilities Commission."
Council also considered a plan
whereby UBC students would be allowed to transfer from city lines to
the university bus. This move was
endorsed by council as an alternative
to its resolution.
Use Of Whips
On Students
Toronto, Nov. 25—(CUP) —
Toronto Police Commissioners
have decided that city* police
were fully justified in using
their whips on university students at the Queen's-Varsity
football game here on November 8.
Accounts of the incident were varied
and confused but it appeared that at
least one Queen's man was struck
by a riding crop when two mounted
policemen made an unsuccessful attempt to save the goal post. Another
Queen's supporter fainted in the excitement.
In a statement to the press members
of the investigating board said that
they felt the officers were acting
purely in the interest of preventing
a serious breach of the peace and that
they deserved the praise of the public
rather   than   its   condemnation.
Mayor Robert Saunders of Toronto,
said that no further action on tho
part of the Btoard of Police Commissioners would be necessary in view
of the evidence given by the officers
concerned and several citizens who
witnessed the incident.
"These men," the mayor stated,
"were not only protecting the goalposts but their own lives as well.
I feel that a fellow named John
Barleycorn had a lot to do with
this trouble and I am not satisfied
that the majority of those taking
part in the fracas were students. My
only regret i.s that the police were
j forced to take such drastic action."
Are the women the inferior of the species?
Indignation was pervading women's common rooms
today as UBC's 2000 co-eds reacted to a report released by
the U. S. Social Sciences Research Council stating that
41 percent of U. S, women do not know what the A-bomb
is, what UN is nor where Britain or Russia are, as compared
to 21 percent of men.
In an address to the IRC conference here Friday, Dr.
P.A. Odegaryd, president of Reed College, Portland, outlined
the findings of the research into the questions of "Public
reaction to the atomic bomb and world affairs."
INTERNATIONAL BOUNDARY and international relations were almost—but not quite—
mixed-up Friday when two Japanese-Americans had to obtain special border crossing permits
from the RCMP. Kiyo Yamamoto and Tsuguo Ikeda, students at Lewis and Clark University,
Portland, were here for the IRC conference held over the weekend. With them is Madelyn
Jameson, delegate from Whitman Colege at Walla Walla, Washington. PAGE 2

The Vancouver Sun, labelled as a newspaper devoted to Progress and Democracy,
Tolerance and Freedom of Thought, has printed an editorial (Free Speech—For Whom?,
November 20) which we are sure any fair
minded citizen or student will denounce as
contradicting these high-flown ideals.
The editorial accused the Alma Mater
Society of "kindergarten-like" action in "retreating so timidly from an original sponsorship of a lecture to be given at UBC by a
figure of world eminence (Dr. Kurt von
In an effort to correct—at least to a
degree—the irreparable damage to the
university name wrought through such an
irresponsible, ill-considered, and downright
inaccurate statement, we will undertake to
explain, for the benefit of the Vancouver
Sun, the facts behind the Schuschnigg fiasco.
The AMS contracted with the local agent
handling the lecture tour of the one-time
chancellor of Austria, with the belief that his
eminence in world affairs would merit his
appearance at UBC and the $250 guarantee.
This action brought a storm of protest
from campus political clubs who rose to term
Schuschnigg a "clerical facist" who "shot his
own people" in the streets of Vienna during
the 1934 revolt.
Apparently the AMS was unaware of the
political aspects of the elderly diplomat's
career. These aspects were drawn to the
attention of the Council at a meeting of the
presidents from each of the four political
For our money, when four politicians of
as wide a range of views as were represented
at that meeting brand a speaker "political";
he must be.
It was good enough for the AMS anyway,
because they hastily withdrew their sponsorship under the terms of the code which denies
that the Society as such should take part in
anything of a political nature. They explain,
and justly, that political speakers should be
sponsored by political clubs.
Meanwhile Schuschnigg was without a
sponsor. The UBC Newman Club was prevailed upon to undertake that sponsorship,
on no grounds other than the fact that
Schuschnigg was a Catholic.
They did, and Schuschnigg spoke as
If any accusations are to be levelled it
should be in the direction of the meeting of
the "big four", not at the AMS. The big four
decision terming Schuschnigg "political" was
not a just one judging from the tone of the
address when it was finally delivered.
Be that as it may, if we are to accept their
decision in good faith—as it was intended, we
believe—the Vancouver Sun is suggesting
that the Alma Mater Society sponsor political
speakers on the campus. Not very smart.
We are, however, inclined to give Vancouver's own home-owned, home-cooked
newspaper the benefit of the doubt. We feel
that had the editorial writer in question taken
a few moments to check the facts—as did
those of two other Vancouver Dailies—the
whole thing would never have happened.
Vancouver Sun please copy.
Test Cases
The settlement of Vancouver's transit
tie-up has come at last. After 29 days of running, walking and thumbing to keep appointments with professors UBC students can once
more travel in elegant comfort aboard tho
local Toonervilles.
While they ride they might at the same
time reflect that the strike was possibly one
of the last which they shall see. It is doubtful
that there shall be many more like it or any
other work stoppages, for that matter.
Every indication is that labor-management troubles are on the way out. One factor
in particular is indicative of an end to strikes.
That factor is the sudden interest manifested by employers in the welfare of trade
unions, and communist activities.
At this point it might be appropriate to
state that I am not particularly concerned
with the presence of communists in trade
unions, or any place else. To my mind it is
quite conceivable that union members should
be the ones to decide on the make-up of their
groups, even to the point of saying who shall
run the show. However, the anti-commie
drive throughout the union movement is
mentioned because I think that it supplies a
clear illustration of management's increased
concern for labor's welfare.
Recently, Henry Ford II let it be known
that he was heartily in accord with the attempts of the United Automobile Workers of
America to weed the commies out of the
union flower bed. Mr. Ford should be congratulated,
If you will recall, it was not so long ago
that the Ford company was clearly interested
in another phase of UAW activity. Back
around the time whet] Hitler was making von
Schuschnigg uncomfortable and F.D.R. was
well into his second term, Henry Ford had
considerable difficulty with his workers, They
were engaged in a strike for higher wages,
shorter hours, and recognition.
Walter Reuther, now president of the
union and the man who's action drew young
Ford's plaudits, was one of the same men
who was set upon by company "goon" squads
and  had   their   faces  beaten   in   more   than
somewhat. Reuther and Richard Frankenstein of the same union were sent to the
hospital as a result of Henry Senior's non-
approval of their activities.
Ford, himself, was bitterly opposed to
unions and used every conceivable weapon
to frustrate union attempts to organize his
plants. This opposition went as far as actual
bloodshed and lock-outs.
Things have changed since 1937. Now the
Ford company no longer uses violent tactics
to overcome the union. The men who once
were in charge of the .strongarm squads—
their job was called 'personnel counselling'—
have since been moved to other positions on
the board of directors.
Young Henry now watches over his union
with a fatherly eye. When the boys from the
assembly line meet in convention and oust
the Reds from the union he greets their move
with verbal applause.
Similarly, in Canada management seems
to have become enlightened.
With what seems to be due concern for
the welfare of the workers the CMA at its
last convention advised labor "to clean house"
of communist influence. Coming from a group
whose members have been notably successful
in their efforts to resist the rise of trade
unionism in this country this advice should
be doubly valuable.
It is difficult for a disinterested observer
to gather any conclusion other than the obvious one from all this solicitude. Although
I do not lay claim to any reputation as a
phophet it would appear that there has been
a realization of labor's status in the labor-
management partnership.
If such is the case then we can look forward to days of peace on the labor front.
There will be no more bloody warfare around
Ford plants. Strikes, strikebreakers and lockouts will be confined to the history books.
No longer will management sit back and try
to starve out striking workers. When there
are difficulties, management will sit down
to the conference table with union representatives, to settle amicably all disputes, That day
might indeed be here.
I wonder?
Dear Sir:
For weeks I had been looking
forward to seeing that magnificent
film "Lost Horizon." But last Tuesday evening when I arrived at the
Auditorium, I found that Schuschnigg was going to speak.
Now, I hadn't come to hear
Schuschnigg presented by the
Newman Club; I had come to see
"Lost Horizon" presented by the
UBC Film Society.
I had understood that the Film
Society sponsored a film regularly
every Tuesday evening and I am

However, I believe I echo the
opinions of most of the Ubyssey's

publication dates, when I say that
it's a pretty darn good paper.
The letter aforementioned is, I
believe, one of the most sensible
constructions to appear in that

It is a fitting reply to an undercurrent of friction which inspires
to create a paper of palpitating,
pussy-footed pansies.

think it's a pretty good newspaper
and goes along way toward giving
a clear view of the organization
in which we spend a great deal of
our lives at present.

from certain corners by throwing
a bouquet in the path of the Pubsters; for as an independant and
a student who looks for the NEWS;
they deserve it.

Dear Sir:
Ater hearing Dr. Schuschnigg's
address ... I wish to exptend my
personal congratulations to the
Newman Club for (sponsoring)
such a fine speech by a fine man.
I would also like to explain my
stand as president of the Student
Progressive-Conservative Club at
the meeting called Monday afternoon to determine the justice of
the  AMS  sponsoring  the  address.
Two resolutions were passed. The
first was to the effect that the
responsibility of sponsoring political speakers should be left to tho
political clubs and not to be undertaken by the AMS, and that they
should not be paid and finally
that such existing contracts should
be cancelled forthwith.
The second was to the effect
that. Dr. Schuschnigg was a political speaker with a notoriously undemocratic record.
Owing to a shameful ignorance
of European politics and a distrust of many historians I felt that
1 must hear Dr. Schuschniggg before supporting the later resolution. Having heard him I am glad
of that decision.
I did, however, support the first
It is my personal opinion that

Grad Comments
Dear Sir:
We are now well along in the
sixth year that I have been following the efforts of the Ubyssey,
and what with butter-fingered
typesetters and cross-eyed proofreaders the pursuit has not always
been any easy one.
I think that the Daily Ubyssey,
in its present form, is coming almost close to not being a rag.
The news stories are a darn
sight more adequate, more understandable, and more interesting
to read than the ones in the commercial press to which we aro
exposed in this corner of the
world   (Summerland).
It's true we still have Bewley's
bedtime babbling and Lipson's
prattle, but the features and editorials arc usually worth glancing
at. The letters to the editor have
reached an unprecedented level of
vitality—not to mention quantity.
The cuts are better, more plentiful
and timelier than at any time I
can remember.
The editorial policy appears to
have at long last reached the stage
of maturity where the Ubyssey
can critize council without merely
being petulant.
Tlie editors are, moreover,
making an obvious effort to be
politically impartial, even though
it kills them.
Gone perhaps are the clays when
right was right and left was left
out in the cold.

To those of every station,
To forge their occupation,
And come get an education.
Oh, come along and cheer with me.

As on the sward our rugger boys
Beat their brains while  we make
We love to brag of weekends lost,
Of amber straight and quickly
And one would think if us to hear
We worshipped  steins of foam-

Our pep-meet humour's best of all
And raucous laughter fills the hall
At jokes that really aren't so low
It's just  that  education's slow.
So   if  you   like   our  little   set-up,
Brains that thrive or phony get-up,

Dear Sir:
I would like to congratulate the
Newman Club on their choice J
speakers. In a short space of thru
they have presented the anti-
labourite, Keyserlingk, and now
an "ex" fascist, Schuschnigg.
In order to round out their
selection I would suggest that
they invite the granddady of 'em
all,   Dictator  Franco.
I am sure he would give an interesting discourse on repression.
(for a small fee)
I'm quite sure if Franco were
asked, he too would deny any
association with fascist movement.

Many of the delegates expressed
the opinion that both Russian and
U.S. troops would have to withdraw and a free election held
before peace could be restored.
On the German question delegates were almost unanimous in
the opinion that German industry
should not be dismantled.
Russia, it was felt, was not
acting in the best interests of
European economy.
"While Molotov preached against
decentralization of German industry Russian trains were carrying
away German machinery," one
delegate declared.
On the Indonesian question delegates  were  almost  unanimous   in
their  condemnation   of  Dutch  actions.
It was admitted that the constitution of the Indonesian People's
Republic was drawn during the
Japanese occupation but it was
pointed out the British supported
the movement when their troops
arrived  in  1945  .
The Dutch had violated every
agreement made with the natives
whereas the Republic had lived
up to its commitments almost to

Broader education was the only
solution to the Japanese problem
it was said during discussion on
Asia. "Although there is a higher

so narrow as to be worthless,"

Players1 Club Fall Billing
After 18 years of dramatic silence, the Players' Club this
season presented a play, written, produced and directed by a
student on their annual bill of four "one acters" that closed
Saturday night in the auditorium.

on    contemporary    morality,    is
work   of   fourth   year   Arts   student
Ernest Perrault.
Setting the scene on Mt. Olympus,
home of the Greek gods, Perrault
draws a highly entertaining picture
of civilization with its war and social
decay as reflected in the attitudes of
Jupiter and his fellows.
In spite of the excellence of the
script, however, the audience is constantly reminded of the fact that this
play was originally written for radio
not for the legitamite theatre. The
action appears to be dubbed in and
there is the feeling that one could
enjoy the play as much with one's
eyes closed. We are looking for
more plays by Perrault written with
the idea of stage action in mind.
"Aria Da Capo" a "play on war,"
was easily the best acted and directed
play of the evening, Joy Coghill
deserves the highest praise for her
macabre lighting effects and flowing
"The Miracle of St. Antony" while
lagging slightly in parts served as
a perfect vehicle for the sparkling
acting of Daphne Hutcheson. We
predict great things for this young
actress. It is hoped the Player's Club
gives her a feature spot next time.
The final play "Women in Council"
a light and somewhat dull comedy
by Aristophanes was turned into a
hilarious farce by the vaudevillian
antics of Ned Larsen. It is a great
deal to Larsens credit that he made
the audience laugh with the lines he
was given.

f>rogram was begun, mil-
ions of booklets, bulletins
and brochures have been
sent out to the various branches of industry to inform
them about new ways of
achieving greater efficiency
and economy through the
use of Nickel. The thousands of tons of paper used
in this way have been an important factor in multiplying
the sales of Canadian Nickel
over and over again;
The pulp and paper industry
uses tons of Nickel in valves

Nickel alloys are also used ia
parts where strength and

The mining, smelting and

industry create employment
in the Nickel industry. The
distribution of large quanti-

creates employment in the

Split Weekend Contests
Blue and Gold hoopla fans
got more than their share of
excitement Saturday night as
the basketballing 'Birdmen
came from behind in the last
two minutes of a real thriller
to win by six points and thereby split a two game weekend
series with the Wildcats of
Central Washington. Losing a
similar thriller by a 50-47
margin on Friday night, the
'Birds came back to win 61-55
in the Saturday tilt,
Both battles featured constant action
in attack and defence as the 'Birds
were facing a team that showed
plenty of class in their fast and
smooth passing plays. The emphasis
on speed gave the student crowd
plenty to yell about throughout both
The Friday affair saw both teams
play a see-saw battle throughout the
first half. Tlie sharp eye of Pat
McGeer kept Varsity hopes up notching nine of his 17 points in the first
half, but it was the free shot ability
of 'Long John" Forsythe that brought
the teams to an even 24-all basis
at the whistle.
Turnabout In Scoring Sprees
Going into the last frame, the 'Birds
watched the Wildcats take a 36-27
lead and from that point on, both
teams took turns at going on scoring
sprees of nearly eight points at a
As the scoreboard read 49-41 for the
visitors, it was the 'Birds' turn to
put on the heat. They managed to
bring the reading to 49-47 when a
"fatal foul" gave the Wildcats their
extra marker—the one that broke the
'Bird streak and proved to be the
final point.
The Saturday fracas saw the .same
close scoring all through the firFt
half with the 'Birdmen leaving the
floor on the short end of a 30-27
score at the end of the period.
Twice in the last half, screaming fans
saw the 'Birdmen tie the score and
once they took a one point lead,
but each time the power of the Wildcat squad came to the fore as the
visitors regained their lead . . . except
for one occasion.
Campbell Notches Big One
That occasion came with only two
minutes to go, when Dave Campbell
launched a long one that swished
the hemp and brought the sc^re
figures to a 55-53 lead for UBC.
From there on in, it was just a
matter of who could play the coolest
brand of ball, and with the help of
veterans Kermode and McGeer, the
'Birdmen managed to hold the ball and
wait for the breaks. Baskets by Kermode, Bell and McGeer against one
effort by Nicholson ended the battle.
Once again it was Kermode and
McGeer in the scoring parade with
25 and 32 respectively for the series.
Both Reid Mitchell and Bill Bell
turned in sparkling performances to
add to their now established reputations.
The sensational one hand push shots
of Fred Peterson, the key work of
Dean Nicholson, and the hard play
cf Charlie Long made the visiting
Winco League team a constant threat
to   the  Varsity  cause.
Fitba' Squad
Heads League
After dropping out of top
spot for one brief week, Varsity's fighting soccer eleven are
right back up there again a,-,
they scored a convincing 44
victory over the erstwhile leac1
ers, South Hill, in a first division match played at Kerrisdale
Park on Saturday afternoon.
In the second division, UBC is
also making tracks for the upper bracket after posting a 5-4
win over Girardis on the Campus grounds.
Miller McGill's lads apparently took
his midweek lecture to heart as they
poured four fast goals past the South
Hill custodian and coasted to victory
in the second half. Bill Thomas, Pat
Harrison, Hugh Ross and Stu Todd
counted one apiece for the Blue and
Gold in the first half. A late goal
by Art Coombs saved the losers
from a shutout.
Varsity's hard-working inside-left,
Jimmy Gold, missed the game because of a broken finger incurred in
last Sunday's losing battle with Empire   Hotel.
Sunday, the lowly Powell River
team beat North Burnaby 2-1 and
thereby assured the Varsity squad of
top place, one point up on South Hill
and  two  above  the  Burnaby  squad.
UB'C fans have good reason to rejoice as their favorite team really
rolled in their 5-4 victory over Girardis. Nearly all of the Blue and
Gold's five counters resulted from
fast passing attacks which featured
neat play in the inside and wing
positions. Goals by Dave McKinnon
and Alfie Scow put the UBC squad
ahead 2-0 in the first twenty minutes
and the winners maintained a two-
goal advantage 'til the last minute
of the game. Murray Wiggins made
it 3-1 at the half. The second goal
of the game by both McKinnon and
Scow  finished   UBC's  scoring.
The Students now occupy a halfway position in the league standings.
UBC Maitre d'Armes
Hale Atkenson, maitre d'armes for UBC, has been appointed to the Olympic Selection Committee for British Columbia
by the National Fencing Committee, and will be in charge of
the selection of B. C. fencers to go to the Olympic Games trials.
Atkenson, one of the finest fencing
instructors in the Dominion, has
coached at numerous schools both in
Canada and. abroad, and at the present moment is considered the premiere swordsman in B.C.
A UBC student is almost certain
to be selected for the Olympic trials.
Robert Simpson, 1947 Dominion Sabre
Champion, is one of the three British
Columbians holding championships,
and stands a good chance of making
the trip to London as a representative of Canada.
Simpson, however, is not the only
UBC student who might be selected
by their mentor for tryouts for the
Olympics. Rod Wilks 1947 Junior In
ternational Pacific Runner-up, and
Rae Bates who has fenced in the
Dominion and Pacific Internationals
also stand good chances of journeying
to the trials.
Free tickets to Wednesday night's
hockey game against the Vancouver
White Spots will be given away at
the UBC Gym today. This move is
destined to give student fans a chance
to see the Thunderbirds in action
while at the same time conserving
their limited finances.
Fem Turf Teams
Take Twin Bill
Blue and Gold fem hockeyists dusted
the cobwebs from their sticks and
turned in two victories at Connaught
Park this weekend.
Varsity outscored Britannia Grads
5-3 with Jean Weber accounting for 3
of Varsity's tallies. Nora McDermott
and Ann Turner notched the re- !
maining points for the Blue and Gold. !
Varsity's young sisters, the UBC I
squad, fared equally well by eking |
out a 1-0 margin over Ex-Fairview. !
Carmel Fitz-James, playing with the
campus team for the first time, scored
the winning marker with only two
minutes of  playing  time  remaining.   '
Next weekend will see Varsity
tackle Ex-Kits, and UBC meet Britannia Grads at 2:00 p.m. at Con-;
naught Park. j
SOLID DEFENCEMEN—Terry Nelford and Bob Saunders
provided a stalwart defence for the UBC Thunderbirds in their
Inter-City Hockey League matches.

Via 8-4 Triumph Over Indians
UBC's puck chasing Thunderbirds climbed into the lead
of the Senior B Loop along with Vancouver White Spots and
Nanaimo Clippers, by trouncing Vancouver Indians by a
resounding 8-4 score. Sunday's win at Queen's Park makes
Wednesday's tilt with the White Spots a crucial one, with the
winner taking over undisputed possession of first place.
It was Thunderbirds all the way
after the first period last Sunday,
with Booby Koch leading the campus
men to an easy win. The Indians
entered the game as ih« conquerors of !
the White Spots, so they were sound-
ed out carefully in the first canto, by '
the wary students. i
However,  by  the end of  the  first'
period it was obvious that it would ,
be only a matter of time before the
Indian goal tender would be beaten,
for in the last fiive minutes of that |
stanza, the 'Birds were firing rubber
from all angles.
The second period was just a
minute old when Koch took a relay
from Bony and Johnson for the fir.it
goal of the game. This marker was
followed by one from the stick of
Hass Young who swooped in on tribe:
goaler, Sam Hergert, to pick up
Wagner's rebound and fire it into the
cage. Reid made the score 3-0 when
he deflected Lerbenko's shot into the
net while Indian Rouse was serving
two  minutes for Interference.
Indians got their first marker when
Rouse  tallied  at  Ihe  14 minute  mark
In the final canto, UBC garnered
five goals to the Tribe's three. Koch
and Andrew each collected twice, and
Reid sank one to complete the 'Birds
scoring. Stan Petrow racked up all
three of the Indian's third period

Takes Win
Over Chiefs
The old story of getting away
to a slow start, cost the UBC
Chiefs their third Senior A loss
of the current season when
they bowed 59-45 to Chilliwack
Saturday night in the valley
Led by Britton and Butchart, Chilliwack got away to an early lead and
never looked back. The Chiefs found
the Valley maples strange to them,
and after the long car trip, were
unable to place their shots with any
great amount of accuracy.
Throughout the tilt, both teams
were continually penalized for rough
playing. In the final frame, two Chilliwack players were asked to leave
the floor after accruing five fouls
It was during this last quarter that
the Chiefs tinally started to play ball
as they outscored the Valleys 14 to
Time ran out, however, before the
Whittlemen could equalize the count,
and the final whistle saw the students
on the short end of the count.
One encouraging slant of the contest was the fact that all 12 of the
players used by Coach Whittle managed to score during the affair.
High man for the Chiefs was center
Chuck Raitt with 10 points, while
E'utchart led the winners with an
even   15.

Captain Barry Morris more than did his share Saturday
afternoon when he led his Varsity rugger fifteen to a 14-0 victory
over Meralomas in the Stadium. Down at Brockton Point two
more campus squads came out victors in tilts with two Rowing
