 Transportation   Problems   Face   Students   As   Gas   Rationing   Looms
By JACK FERRY
• COMES April 1 and with
it less gasoline for all
those cars that dally bring
half of Varsity's students to
the campus.
For the past few days the Ubyssey has been conducting a survey
to find out just how the new Dominion regulations will affect the
transportation problems of undergraduates during the month of
April, especially during the first
two weeks. (So much can happen
before next September that no one
can make any guess beyond the
last month of this term.)
As far as can be ascertained from
the Automobile Club, the B.C.
Electric, local authorities, and per
sonal   comments,   these   are   the
facts:
1. Most cars operated by students will come under the Category A (pleasure car) division and
as such will be allowed four to
five gallons per week. This a-
mount is not definite and might be
changed at any time. Some students, however, operate cars from
families that will receive more gas
because of special priority standings.
2. First gasoline coupons will be
good for the months of April, May
and June. All the ration may be
used in one week of this period,
but none may be saved for the
next period's allowance.
9. As students, It is unlikely that
undergraduates will receive special
consideration. Groups of students
in special circumstances can apply
for special rating to the Oil Comptroller In Room 110, 815 West Hastings.
4. B.C. Electric traffic officials
state that it is absolutely impossible
to secure more buses for the University Line. Very interested in
how students are making their
transportation plans, they feel that
the only solution at present is *
staggering of hours.
5. According to Registrar C. B.
Wood, the Administration has
made no arrangements for the
special conditions due in April.
He stated when questioned yesterday that students should get together and settle the problem. As
yet, Student Council has not considered the matter.
8:30 LECTURES
It would seem that the only very
serious problem to be met by stu
dents is that of getting to Varsity
in time for 8:30 lectures. A count
of cars at nine o'clock one morning last week showed about 200
cars present. A conservative estimate would place five people to
a car, thus making at least 1000
students that arrive on the campus
by 8:30.
If only a quarter of these were
unable to come in cars after April
1 it would make for a serious
crush on the buses, for it is clear
that no more can be added to the
run.
All this, however, is not as black
as it looks.
For the main trouble should only
last, for this year at least, during
the first two weeks of April.
That is, if one word, CO-OPERATION, is remembered by all students.   A quick trip to the Lib
rary or Brock Hall at nine o'clock
each   morning   reveals   a   goodly
number of men and women that
need not have come so early.
If people not having 8:30 or 9:30
lectures voluntarily give up then-
places in private cars and buses
to those who absolutely have to
come for the earlier lectures, it
would help considerably.
Many and varied are the positions that students find themselves
in regarding transportation for
those two vital first weeks in AprlL
MORE CAR CHAINS
The general belief is that more
car chains will have to be formed
because most drivers will find it
impossible to bring their own cars
every day on four or five gallons
per week.
Still others, already coming in
chains, but from great distances,
e.g., North Vancouver, and Burn-
aby, or even Shaughnessy, think
they will be unable to continue.
What they will do is visioned in
such remarks as those of Elizabeth
Locke, who states "I think we'll
all be rising at thc crack of dawn
and coming on the street car."
Another solution is revealed in
the words of Anne du Moulin, who
said yesterday: "We could bring
our car one day, and we would
have to pick up all our passengers
' at one central place."
PAINLESS METHOD
And then there is another painless method such as Peggy Davidson's plan to "do without oar
transportation one day a week."
Most unusual is the plan of
Norma Yates and friends. "In fine
weather," she vows, "we're going
to k*eep our bicycles outside the
Gates and pick them up each morning so we won't have to go on the
buses. At night we can cycle into
the Gates, leave them there and
go the rest of the way by streetcar."
Then there are those like Bob
Ellis who plans to use all his first-
period coupons in April for bringing his many passengers to and
from Varsity. He can do this kt
he gi. es up his own pleasure driving in the months of May and June.
All in all it boils down to the
problem of co-operating while
Varsity is still in regular session.
After that everybody will have
to realize that the days of drives
around Marine drive, parties in
remote parts of town, and after*
noon visits to the city are gone
for the duration.
And after that, who knows?

Society
Lectures
• THE NEWLY-FORMED
ENGINEERING Undergraduate Society will commence next Thursday to
give Vocational guidance
talks to all engineers. These
lectures will be important
to help freshmen, second-
year men, and third-year
men, who are specially requested to attend, to choose
their field in engineering.
On Thursday, March 19, Dr. H.
J. MacLeod, head of the mechanical and electrical engineering departments, will speak on the opportunities and advantages of the
work of these fields of engineering.
Talks on other fields of engineering will  also be  given,  their
dates to be broadcast or announced in a future issue.
ROONEY
Sid Rooney, president of the
campus organization of the American Society of Mechanical engineering, states: "In these times, it
is necessary for all future engineers to decide what field they will
enter, and to decide with the
knowledge and wisdom of recognized authorities on the nature of
the work. American colleges are
speeding up the engineering
courses.and there is a possibility
that this can happen at our University. Already the University
of Oregon is continuing the regular
lecture session through the coming summer. Freshmen, second
and third year men are urgently
requested to attend these lectures,
to choose the field to which they
are best suited."
SPC Drive
For Books
Next Week
• THE Social Problems
Club will hold a drive
next week to collect magazines and books for soldiers
and airmen who are in training. Boxes will be placed at
several convenient places a-
round the campus for collecting the periodicals.
Any student who has a few
magazines or books on hand which
he doesn't want, is asked to bring
them. It is hoped that all other
clubs on the campus will cooperate with the S.P.C. and make the
drlye a success.
Every student must have a few
magazines and books on hand that
he never looks at but yet does not
wish to destroy," said Leslie Drayton, in charge of the drive, "here
is his opportunity to give them to
someone who will get considerable
value out of tnem."

Conscription Plebiscite
Topic For Faculty Forum
•   THURSDAY, March 19, at 12:30 in the Auditorium, a
four-way forum on the coming conscription plebiscite will
be held.
Sponsored by the S.P.C., the speakers will be prominent faculty members, who will discuss various aspects of
the plebiscite as it affects University students. Names of the
speakers are not yet available, but a tentative list includes
Dr. G. G. Sedgewick and Dr. G. M. Shrum.
The Plebiscite to be held April -
27, when Canada will give its
opinion on overseas conscription,
has caused In and out of Parliament a large amount of comment
and criticism.
A rational discussion emphasizing the problems peculiar to students should be welcomed by all
who may be affected.   Such ques
tions as "What will happen to students who are medically acceptable and whose courses do not
classify aa an aid to the War
effort?" "How best can an unacceptable applicant for the forces
aid the War effort while attending
'Varsity'?", will be discussed.

I. S. S. Aids In Jap Evacuation
• THE I.S.S. Committee of
of the War Aid Council
has offered its services to cooperate in any way possible
with the B.C. Security Commission in dealing with the
problem of the Japanese students at present attending
university.
With the assistance of Registrar
C. B. Wood, the committee has prepared a detailed tabulation of the
72 Japanese students who registered at U.B.C. last September, showing what courses they are taking
and if and where they wish to
continue  their  education.
The survey reveals that of the
72 registered, only three were born
in Japan. Fourteen plan to graduate in May, four withdrew earlier
in the term, and three nationals
have already made immediate preparations to leave since the evacuation order was issued.
EVACUATION PROBLEM
President of the I.S.S. Committee
Ted Scott sent a letter to A. C.
Taylor of the Commission yesterday offering co-operation, pointing
out the fact that moving the students immediately would cause
them great Inconvenience in writing the final exams, only six weeks
away.
In part the letter read: "We feel
that if it Is not contrary to the
existing regulations and would not
hinder the work of the Commission, provision might be made In
the order In which evacuation is
Undertaken for students to remain undisturbed for the several
weeks needed to complete their
present year's work at the university. Assurance that they
might reasonably expect to remain
for their examinations here would
do much to Quiet their present
fears and uncertainties, and allow
them to proceed with these last
important weeks of work with
much greater effectiveness."
In the event that this provision
could not be made, the I.S.S. at
U.B.C. is prepared to assist the
Commission1 in locating the Japanese students at other university
centers so that the contribution
which many of them are preparing to make to Canadian life might
not be lost.

Inspector
• INSPECTOR GENERAL for
Western Command, Major-General
W. A. Griesbach, seemed well
pleased with the appearance of the
C.O.T.C. and Basic Units when he
conducted an informal inspection
of the units Saturday, March 7.
The I.G. first took a March Past
from several second year Basic
companies as. he and his partv
stood in front of the Armoury.
Next the inspecting party reviewed two companies of the first
year Basic. This was the only formal inspection carried out.
For the remainder of the drill
period Major-General Griesbach
moved about the campus inspecting various groups as they carried
out their regular training.
After inspecting as many groups
as time would permit, the .party
watched the dismissal of the Basic
Groups.
The Science Men's Undergraduate Society and the University Engineering Society have voted to
amalgamate their forces to form
the Engineering Under^aduate
Society.
Gordie Rogers has been elected
as first president of E.U.S.
Rod Morris, present head of
SMUS, explained both societies
were composed'of the same members and military duties and noon-
hour lectures for fourth and fifth
year students had made it difficult to hold full meetings of each.
The sensible thing if to form
one single organisation and this
has accordingly been done.
NEW CONSTrrUTION
Ah entirely new constitution has
been drawn up which provides for
an executive of twelve, in place of
the nineteen members on the two
former societies. Besides stating
the year to which each executive
member must belong, it outlines
in detail exactly what each job entails.       >
"This means," explained Morris,
"that an entirely green executive
can go in and still do an efficient
job."
The new executive has expressed the hope that in spite of war
restrictions, next year will be one
of the biggest years in Science.
Already the Society is beginning
to seek reforms. It is trying to
persuade the authorities to have
all military lectures for Science-
men placed in one afternoon. This,
the members feel, will be a great
advantage for them.
Henceforth, also, members of the
Science Faculty desire to be called
by the name which really is applicable to them, namely, "engineers," in place of "sciencemen".

Blitzkreig Education
A vital need for trained men, both in
war industries and in the armed services,
has resulted in a radical re-organization of
college semesters in the United States. A
recent survey taken by the Association of
American Colleges shows that 89% of the
American institutions have already plumped for year-round operation of the universities to accelerate their programs.
Leading the field is the University of
Chicago which has cut its Arts course to
two years duration. Other institutions plan
to cut theirs to three years or less.
The effects of this plan are obviously
beneficial to nations whose military needs
are urgent. | When everything else is being
speeded up, why should education lag behind?
Many a student who is working his way
through would not be able to continue his
course on a year-round basis unless he received assistance. But, even if this proved
impossible, the student would not lose by
being unable to come in the summer sessions, he would be able to carry on as usual,
getting his degree in the same number of
years as before, while the more fortunate
students who took the accelerated courses
would be on hand to help the war effort that
much sooner.
Last week in Edmonton a class of medical students received their degrees at a
special convocation; almost all of these men
will join the medical corps which is in great
need of doctors. Plans are being discussed
at Alberta to put all the university's courses
on a war footing.
Here at U.B.C. our laboratories are lying idle for the best part of the summer, yet
it is from the labs that the greatest contribution in trained men can be made by U.B.C.
If other universities can divide their year
into two semesters, starting in June and
January and running for five months each,
without long vacations, there seems to be
no reason why we should not.
The problem is not for the students to
decide, but we humbly suggest it to the
powers that be for serious consideration.
—A.W.S.
Social Problems
Next year's, council is going to be faced
with a difficult problem when it tackles the
question of planning social functions for the
yesjj 1942-43.
This year in spite of the war the social
calendar waa as crowded as ever. Admitting
the need for some form of relaxation, it
seems as if some discretion might have been
used by the student body in this regard.
After all, how can you expect the average
citizen to realize that students are taking
life seriously when Thursday after Thursday for two months this term, the downtown papers carried long lists of the names
of students who would be attending a cocktail party at such-and-such a place before
some function? Trying to hide these parties
by not giving the names to the press is hard
ly honest, and trying to substitute our own
version of news to supplant the social lists
is not practical.
When we return in the fall, we will find
ourselves in the midst of gas rationing and
a serious tire shortage. Big down-town social functions; require cars and fond parents
are not going to appreciate junior's joy-
rides.
The sensible way would be for the '42-
43 council to plan a co-ordinated calendar,
eliminating moat of the minor functions and
merging some of the others. The plan could
be ratified by the student body by vote. If
the plan was well-made and the students
turned it down then they could have no
complaint against the down-town protests.
-A.W.S.
Faculty Forum
Accliimed
By W. Kaye Lamb
• IT WAS my pleasant duty recently to acknowledge a
gift of $125 from the graduating classes of 1941 to the
Library's book endowment fund. The 1941 Summer School
had already given $50. Thanks to the students, the fund
has thus been increased by $175 within the last year. For
the present no expenditures are being made from either
principal or interest, in order to hasten the day when the
Library will enjoy a substantial revenue from its endowments.
One wonders what the Library upon which that revenue will be expended, fifteen or twenty years from now, will
be like. It will certainly be very different in many respects
from the Library as we know it now, for libraries are changing rapidly these days, along with other things. It may be
interesting to speculate upon one or two of the developments which will probably have occurred.
In, all likelihood the U.B.C. Library of 1962 will consist in part
of film books or books in miniature. The full effect of the introduction of photography in its various forms is only beginning to be
felt in libraries. ' First came the
photostat, which was satisfactory
for many purposes, though the
facsimile it produced was relatively costly, and as bulky as the
original. Next came microfilm,
which reduced books and even
large newspaper pages to a strip
of movie film. Finally there has
come microprint, which will reproduce a 400-page volume on two
prints measuring only 6 by 9
inches. Viewed through a reader,
the microprint is as sharp and
clear as the original. A given page
is easier to find than in microfilm,
and wear and tear on the print itself is much less. The amazing
compression that microprint makes
possible is almost unbelievable.
For example, one huge set of government documents, which U.B.C.
would give a great deal to have,
would require well on for a quarter of a mile of shelving in the
original book form. Microprint
would enable us to shelve the en-
tiro set in six feet!
RESULTS REVOLUTIONARY
Some of the results of these developments promise to be revolutionary. For one thing, the saving
in space will be very great. This
in itself is an important consideration, for stack rooms are costly
to build, and the large libraries
are finding the cost of expansion
to be staggering. Thus the Library of Congress, the largest on
this continent, some years ago
completea an annex designed to
accommodate ten million additional books; yet the day when it will
bo fdlcd to capacity is already in
sight.
But  space,   after   nil,   is  only   a
matter of steel and concrete, and
dollars and cents. The most important aspect of modern methods
of reproduction is that they promise to make it possible for any
change indeed. Hitherto it has
often been impossible to secure
many books, regardless of money,
because the number of copies in
existence was small, and all of
them had found their way into
public institutions. This meant
that they were forever withdrawn
from the ordinary book market,
and therefore could never be secured by a late comer in the library field, sucn as ourselves. But
the camera lens and the negative
it produces has changed all that.
In most instances any library can
now acquire, at relatively small
expenditure, a micro-facsimile
which, for purposes of study, is
just as good as the original. Indeed, it may even be better, for
the facsimile can be made from a
perfect copy, whereas some of tho
surviving originals may be faded
or mutilated.
It is worth noting that not all
rare books are old books, For example, the early volumes of many
important scientific periodicals,
which appeared when tho subscription list was small, frequently
go out of print so quickly that
only a few libraries can ever possess them. But microfilm and
microprint make it possible to
multiply them indefinitely for the
benefit of less fortunate libraries.
I have been asked if libraries
which own many rare items object to their reproduction. To their
honour, thc answer, in the great
majority of cases, is "no." Thus
in tho British Museum Library a
battery of cameras is busy in the
rare book and manuscript departments, copying the Museums
treasures in order that they be
shared  by  other libraries all  over

and certainly one of the most useful in war time, is the long, narrow, glass-enclosed airforce lab,

the globe. If funds were available — and funds upon a relatively modest scale, considering
the end In view — U.B.C. could be
on the list to receive copies of any
or all of them. This is one of the
things an endowment fund will
enable us to do, if all goes well,
sometime in the future.
MORE SPECIALIZED
COLLECTION
One other impending change in
the U.B.C. Library may be of in-
library anywhere to acquire a
rare-book collection in any field it
may need to cultivate. This is a
terest. By 1962 it will be a much
more specialized collection of books
than it is today. In its first years
it is the duty of any young university library to acquire a general collection, covering, as nearly
as possible, every field of knowledge. But. as a fellow librarian
once remarked to me, the so-called
"well-balanced library" is inevitably a mediocre library. For only
a few immense collections such as
the British Museum and the Library of Congress, the Bodleian or
Harvard University, can ever hope
to be pre-eminent in almost every
field. The day comes when the librarian must pick and choose;
must select three or four or at
most half a dozen fields in which
it is most fitting and necessary
that his book collection should be
outstanding. Having made his decision, he must stand by it firmly,
even deliberately favoring certain
subjects, if need be, at thc expense
of others. Inevitably those interested in fields not on the chosen
list  will  be  disgruntled;  but  that
struction in radio is given, and an
experimental lab. With long rows
of shiny benches, excellent lighting, and the very latest in equipment, the lab is an extremely
valuable addition to the science
building.
Under Mr. K. R. Brown, the men
are divided into three groups for
training, fundamental theory of
radio, experimental and practical.
The men take all three of these
courses during thc 16 weeks training. At the end of 4 weeks, a bar
examination is held and those who
don't pass are taken out of the
course.
At the end of 16 weeks, two
more exams are held and the men
who pass these go to Clinton, Ont.
for further training in the actual
operation of radio locators. Top
members of the class In exams and
deportment are given commissions.
ONLY REQUIREMENT JUNIOR
MATRIC
The course, the only requirement of which is a Junior Matric
standing, gives a knowledge of
radio, service and equipment which
is equivalent to what many graduates in physics and engineering
have.
The course will be important in
peace time, too, as this system of
navigation is expected to replace
all other methods in bad weather.
The men, only a small part of the
1200 in Canada taking this elementary course, are at present living at the Forestry Camp, but in
the future will live at Union College.
To the layman, the names oscillograph, multimeter, vacuum tube
volt meter, etc., probably mean
little, but to the boys of the lab
they represent only a part of the
excellent equipment supplied for
the lab. Each man is assigned a
radio set to work on and has the
use of many other kinds of gadgets.
With a full-time staff of five,
the course, officially called "Radio
Technicians' Course", is rapidly
turning out good material for tho
R.C.A.F., material which is greatly
needed for our war effort.

the C.S.A.D.C. discussion series
will be John Stanton, the well-
known Vancouver labor lawyer.

is a type of growing pain to which
libraries and universities are subject. Young as it is, U.B.C. is approaching the day when these decisions on library policy must be
made; and it is as certain as anything can be that when the day
comes that the valedictory gifts of
1941 (and may we venture to hope,
of 1942?) are yielding a revenue,
that they will be used to enrich
the library in the special fields it
has  chosen for  itself.
After Some
Time
By DORWIN BAIRD
(Dorwin Balrd, former Editor of
The Ubyssey and for thc past two
years program director for radio
station CJOR, is leaving at the
end of this month to go on active
service. Since Christmas Dorwin
has written weekly under this
head, expressing the opinions of
a grad who Is vitally interested
in campus affairs. We take this
opportunity of publicly thanking
him for his help and wishing him
tho best of luck In the army.
-EDITOR.)
• DEAR ARCHIE; Enclosed you
will find a column. It is probably the last, cause you're stopping publication in a week or so,
and those last couple of issues are
always pretty full up.
Just want to take this opportunity Archie, of saying that its
been fun writing a folio or two
for the paper again. I don't know
how useful its been. From one
point of view it couldn't have been
much good, cause I only got one
letter. I wished he'd signed it.
Then you could have printed'it
and a lot of people could have
read what rats we news broadcasters are anyways.
CHANGES
I learned a lot by being around
the campus now and then this
year. Things change you know,
and its my own idea that they
change for the better. Of course
you shouldn't tell the students
how good they are in your editorials. Keep prodding them.
That's the way of progress. But
all in all, I think this gang of students has got it all over the ones
of a few years back.   War brings
• lot of good qualities out in a
person, and from my own casual
glances around, I'd think the campus seems more democratic than
before. The sort of "casual'
clothes the girls are wearing helps
I guess. When Susy had 15 shoes
on, she didn't feel so much inclined to apeak to Daisy, with her
12 brogues. Now they both wear
equally ugly, equally cheap, and
equally practical shoes. That's the
way barriers like that break down.
BROCK HALL
Brock Hall's another thing that
can bring about a brighter campus. 'Way back when a bunch of
us were dreaming about it, and
arguing whether the kitchen
should be here or there, we didn't
have any idea of the major part
the building would play in the
life of the A .M.S. I hope, Archie,
that they realize that about 5000
students who went before did a
big job in putting Brock Hall on
the campus.
Seeing the campus in wartime
is a bit of a shock at first. You
don't realize it, cause you've seen
the changes come gradually. But
to anyone who drops in after a
few years absence, the difference
sets you back a bit. Every day
lately, there seems to be more and
more of a war atmosphere around
here. By next fall it'll be what
the politicians call "'all out."
You know, I get a kick out of
watching things at U.B.C. change.
Too many of us ex-students leave
at the end of four or five years,
attend a few alumni dinners, and
then forget the whole thing.
Trouble with our world might bo
we forget things too easily. We
never pass the lessons we learn
on to others. Result — they learn
'em the hard way themselves.
UNTIL WE MEET . . .
Got to quit now Archie — but
good luck in exams, and in the
Air Force. They thought I was
too heavy to fly, and when they
saw me looking hurt at that they
said they'd find a place somewhere, and would I mind waiting
in the infantry? P.B.I.'s they've
always called them,
Thanks again, Archie, for letting me do the column. If we
meet in London or some other
place this screwy war might take
us, we'll get together for a champagne binge that'll make a Pub
Party look like a W.C.TiU. convention.
Regards to the kids — and to
the best darn varsity in this man's
country.

At Same Time As U.B.C.
•   IT IS APPARENT that "great minds think alike".   In
the very year that the Players' Club Directorate choses
"The Rivals" as their Spring Play, the Theatre Guild in New
York decides to revive the play on Broadway.
The New York cast Includes _^■^■■^^™^^^—
Bobby Clark as Bob Acres, Mary
Boland as Mrs. Malaprop, Walter
Hampden as Sir Anthony Absolute, Philip Bourneuf as Sir
Lucius O'Trigger, Robert Wallsten

It would bo interesting if to compare the performance of the U.B.C.
cast with that of the New YorK
company. Although the Players'
Clubbers have not had by any
means the amount of experience
to be expected from professionals,
their reputation from past year3
gives one the right to expect a
good performance.
Lister Sinclair, as Sir Anthony

that of Walter Hampden.

Final McKechnie
Cup Game Sat. 3:00
Varsity vs. Victoria
• IN THEIR LAST contest of the year, the Varsity Thunderbird McKechnie Cup Rugger crew will engage the
tough Victoria fifteen tomorrow at 3 o'clock in the Stadium.
"It will be a rough and tough game, we have the
speed—Victoria has the roughness and toughness", said student manager Chuck Cotterall when approached yesterday.
He added:
"The number of students who turn out to watch the
game should be a deciding factor as to who will leave the
Stadium victorious." •
The Thunderbird team, still
staggering from their smashing defeat at the hands of the Vancouver Reps two weeks ago, will be
thirsty for vengance as they tackle
the Victoria team, who edged them
out in their last tilt in Victoria.
A serious blow to the team will
be the loss of Bud Spiers, tricky
five-eighths man, who will be unable to play because of a back
injury .concurred when he fell off
his roof.
The game will be a pass feature,
with the Varsity band expected to
be in attendance, and a good turnout should be on hand for the last
game of the series.
In spite of the large number of
players on their injured list, the
Varsity team wil be accurate and
fast for Saturday's conflict, and
will represent one of the speediest
teams in the league.
Featured in the scrum will be
Mack Buck, Hunt Wood, Boyd
Crosby. Al Narod, Bob Owen,
Eckman,  George  Lane,   and  Bill
Orr. Tommy Nlshio is expected to
play receiving half again.
Ian Richards, usually a wing
star, will tackle Bud Spier's five-
eighths spot. Don Carmichael and
Powerhouse Jack Tucker will play
inside threes.
Wally Reid and Harrison will
patrol tho wing beats, and Gerry
Brown will play the fullback spot.

Out of Running
• THE SOCCER SEASON
is all over for Varsity.
In spite of a consistently
good showing on the part of
the Blue and Gold round-
bailers, U.B.C. is out of the
running for the city championship, which was won by
the Police squad, and were
defeated by the Woodsonias
in the cup playoffs.
The team has had one of Its most
successful seasons nevertheless, and*
it is expected that next year Varsity will again take the field to
come out on top of the city league.
A final, season ending banquet
will be held Friday night to mark
the end of this year's play. Congratulations are due to the team
and to its manager, Jim McCarthy.

Mural Cagers
Race For Title
• FOUR TEAMS, by virtue of their won and lost record,
find themselves in the thick ofi the pennant flight for the
intra-mural basketball trophy. They are the Phi Kappa
Sigma, Kappa Sigma, Delta Upsilon and Phi Kappa Pi
quintets.
At least two of these homestretch clubs, the Kappa Sig and
D.U. outfits, can hit the tape ahead
of the pack, providing the former
drops the Phi Gamma Delta tilt,
and the latter five defeats the off-
and-on Zeta Psi bunch next Tuesday evening in the Gymnasium.
Then, the Phi Gamma Sigma
clan can only hope for a second
slot in the current standings, since
they have lost four games in
league play. However, the Phi
Kap Sig casabamen can erase one
of these defeats if they smother
the Psi Upsilon in a protest return
engagement.
REPLAY TILT
Earlier in the season, Psi U.'s
earned a tough 20-18 victory over
the Monahan-Clark combination,
but a discrepancy in the running
and box scores was sufficient to
allow a replay. Phi Kap Sigs
claimed a tie score, while the Psi
Upsilon team made no comment.
Even though the protested game
should go the other way, either
Kappa Sigma or D.U. will emerge
with only two losses—one less than
Phi Kappa Sigma.
Tuesday's schedule pits the vastly Improved Alpha Delta Phi's a-
gainst Psi U. Betas meet the
Sigma Phi Delts in the 8:15 encounter, while in the curtain call
D.U.'s face the Zetes.
LAST WEEK RESULTS:
Alpha Delt 17 - Phi Delta Theta
22. Beta Theta Pi 28 — Psi Upsilon 18. Phi Kappa Pi 14 — Zeta
Psi 12. Delta Upsilon 32 - Sigma
Phi Delta 13.
With the Intra-Mural basketball
schedule going into the last week

Frats Fight
For Playoff
In Baseball
• THE SECOND ROUND
of the intra-mural soft-
ball competition was played
off last week-end amidst wild
enthusiasm. The old axiom
that the ball game is not over
till the last man is out sure
caused many teams to have
heart failure in this series.
The Beta-Phi Delt game certainly held to this theory. The
Beta's were winning 7—4 in the
last inning, but McKlnlay, shortstop for the Phi Delts, with one
on the base, ducked one into short-
centre field to score the runner
from third. No one was out but
the ball game was over.
The headline event was the Phi
Kappa PI—Phi Kappa Sigma game.
Fairburn and Clarke made it a
pitchers duel only allowing two
hits apiece, but the Kappa Sigs
made the best of their efforts and
scored one run. Thus the score
ended 1—0 or the Phi Kappa
Sigmas frat.
This only leaves four teams left
to settle out for the cup:—Psi V%
Phi Delts, Phi Kappa Pi's and the
Kappa Sigs. The Psi Vs as yet
are undefeated and are highly favoured to win the series.

Army Squad Takes
Hockey Game 1*2
• THE VARSITY ICE HOCKEY team dropped a fast,
furious game to the Rocky Mountain Rangers when the
army boys took immediate advantage of a slump on the part
of Ed Benson, Varsity goalie, to ring up seven net counters
to the! five scored by U.B.C. "In spite of the loss, it was the
best game we have had all season", Harry Home, Varsity
right wing forward stated enthusiastically.
The game opened fast, with the       ^^^^^-™^-"^—""^^"^-"^™
clean, neat hockey showing up immediately. Both teams showed
unusual skill in passing, defense
work, and attacks. If it were not
for the unfortunate slump suffered by goalie Benson, the score
would not have been so bad.
One of the Rocky Mountain boys
scored on Ed no less than four
times, all in exactly the same
manner. But the Varsity offense
made up for this poor netting by
driving in five shots to make the
game even and exciting all the
way.

Dates For Intra -Frat
Track Meet Set For
Coming Tue., Thur.
•   MORE THAN one hundred hopeful contestants will take
part in the Intra-Mural Track Meet next Tuesday and
Thursday, March 17 and 19, when the greatly heralded Greek
Meet is run off in the Stadium.
Listing over ten events on it's program, the Meet
should draw at least twenty men from each group on the
campus, according to Stu Madden, head Mural track official.
Feature event of the entire contest will be the newly formed
Medley Race, consisting of a fifty
yard run, a hundred, a two-twenty
and a four-forty.
Of importance to all runners is
the announced system of awarding
points. The winners of a race,
will be given *ive points. Second
place will be allowed three points
and third two points while fourth
gets one.
The Rules set concerning entries
In the Meet are as follows: two
men from every Fraternity or
group will be allowed to enter
event.
Moreover no man may enter in
more than  two events,  including
the Medley Race.
Besides the Track events, numerous Field events will be run off.
These events will include a discus throw, javelin throw, shot put.
and the running jumps both the
high jump and the broad jump.
A sad note to many distance men
is the news that no mile event Is
scheduled. 	
Time set for the Meet is 12:30
and only one hour has been allotted on each day for the entire
running of the contest. Track
officals have therefore stressed
the fact that all contestants must
turn out and be ready on time.
