Engineers Produce
Pep Meet, Ubyssey
Trek Next Week
• NEXT Tuesday the Engineers
will    produce   the    Infamous
Science pep meet in the auditorium to publicise the Oreat Trek
of the Engineers, formerly known
as the Science Ball.
Under the direction of Bud
Huff, Sc. '47, the pop meet committee promises a new high in cultural entertainment. Among the
promised attractions are several
very original skits, a male quartet singing old traditional engineers' songs, and a genuine chorus.
Also heralding the Trek, the
Science Ubyssey will appear Tuesday noon. Edited by Bruce Bewell, Met. '46, the special issue will
be printed with red ink and will
feature the engineers' news and
The Ball will be held at the
Commodore, Thursday February 8
from 9:00 to 1:00. Feature attraction of the Ball will be the table
decorating competition in which
the two lower years will vie with
more spectacular senior clubs for
a valuable prize, the exact nature
of which has not been revealed.
Taming of Shrew'
Rehearsals Start
• REHEARSALS for "The Taming of the Shrew" are well under way. Members of the Players
Club have been practising morning, noon, and night for the Thirtieth Anniversary production.
Plans for this Anniversary include better programs, larger than
last year's said Ted English, Play-
ers Club president.
An artistically designed cover
is to be fashioned in a professional
style by Cliff Robinson.
The cover will follow the motive of the stage setting.
Included in he programs will be
a list of the patrons and a synopsis of the scenes. The booklet will
also contain a number of advertisements.
There is to be a Playreading on
February 4 at Heather Blundell s,
5589 Wycllffe Road.
• INTER-FACULTY competition
will be a feature of this year's
drive for funds to support the International Student Service, a
world - wide organization aiding
needy students everywhere, which
begins on the campus Monday,
February 26.
Objective of the six-day drive
will be one dollar per student, the
same quota as accepted by colleges throughout Canada. Organizers of the campaign plan to have
four faculty pennants manufactured, one each for Arts, Aggie,
Commerce, and Science. The lead
ing faculty In its quota of one
dollar per student will "capture"
the flags of the other three faculties and may fly them in triumph to the everlasting shame of
their defeated opponents.
Plans for the forthcoming campaign are being laid by a committee set up by the War Aid
Council and headed by freshman
class president-Herb Capozzi. Sitting on the board are members
from several representative campus organisations, including Phrateres, Mamooks, VCF and the U-
The committee plans a week of
intensive campaigning to reach
the goal of nearly $3000. Each day
of the drive will be sponsored by
one campus club or organization
which will present the specially
arranged features for that day.
Among the projects planned is
a Chinese auction where the bidder pays only the difference between his bid and the previous
The committee will seek the cooperation of the cafeteria and the
bus*-stop lunch counter in boosting the price of coffee during the
drive to seven cents, the extra
penny going to ISS.
Further plans will be laid at a
special committee meeting Monday.
Founded a number of years ago
with the aim of helping students
in need and fostering a closer
spirit of co-operation among all
universities, the ISS has borne a
major share in keeping the lamp
of learning lit among both free
students and student-prisoners in
Europe and Asia.
In this it co-operates with the
YMCA and similar relief bodies,
but the work of ISS is carried on
entirely by students.

EUS President Accuses Student
Council President of Blundering
• ANSWERING a request by AMS President Dick Bibbs,
that he either "apologize or lay charges against Students'
Council", Roy Morton, President of the Engineers' Undergraduate Society, sent the following letter to The Ubyssey
Friday as the aftermath of Tuesday's AMS meeting.
The Editor *~"————-—————
What's in the bag?
The Ubyssey
Daar Sir:
I have been asked to lay specific
charges against Students' Council,
or apologize to President Bibbs.
I find the first less distasteful.
For a president of Students'
Council to say "the student body
in the mass is very unintelligent"
to my mind constitutes a blunder.
To, by a mere wave of the hand,
disband the Discipline Committee,
which this year has proved its
effectiveness, without even notifying the members concerned,
seems to me also a blunder.
For council numbers to use student money for a trip to Ontario,
without consulting the students
as to the views they wished to
have expressed, also appears to
come within the realms of blundering.
It has been felt that Students'
Council lost touch with the students. In spite of this, in order
to revise the constitution so that
council should be brought into
closer touch with students, a committee composed of Student Council members except for two, was
formed. It is interesting to note
that this committee met, we have
been told by Mr. Raphael, but 3
times. For council to vote on such
hasty revision, and then present
it to the student body, would appear to be the blunder to end all
To have a chairman relinquish
the chair and yet continue to conduct the meeting la not done.
However, I do not ask for a pu-
lic apology from President Bibbs.
Public apologies to me seem silly.
I hope this satisfactorily complies with President Bibb's letter
as my time can be used to better
avail than bickering ln The U-
Yours  truly,
Roy Morton.

Bibbs Protests
Quiz Question on
Campus Necking
• "Do vYou think UBC students
are   right   ln   their   protest
against the rule No necking on
the campus?" This was a "Public
Opinion" question quoted in the
News Herald two weeks ago.
Dick Bibbs, president of the A
MS wrote a letter to "Public Opinion" and pointed out that there ls
no such rule and there has been
no necessity for such a rule on
this campus.
He said that part of the code of
the Alma Mater Society rules
against misconduct on the campus and that there has been no
protest against this rule.
In his letter, Bibbs also said that
the answers of fifteen students to
the question asked by a Vancouver
Daily Province reporter, "What
do you think of allowing necking
on the UBC campus?" were as
frivolous as the question itself.
Pat Mayne Heads
Phrateres Society
• PAT MAYNE was chosen to

of the Red Army's.
Radio Moscow also reported the
capture of Stettin by the sea.
In addition, Soldin, 57 miles
northeast of the German capital,
has fallen into Russian hands, ^n
operation that may seal off 11,000
square miles of Pomerania. A Ger

Russian forces massing along the
banks of the Oder River, last

their positions at Stalingrad two
years ago.

FEBRUARY 3, 1944
Battle of the Titans
Sometimes when we think back over
the events of the past few weeks we feel
just like curling up in the teapot and letting
the tempest rage around by itself.
It's quite evident that the least said
about student government revision right
now the better will stand your reputation.
You can't even attempt to present an impartial analysis without some people claiming your motives are dark.
And why has council's pet scheme of
government revision failed? Because, with
two councillor candidates for AMS president on opposite sides, the issue was put
before the students. It's all very well to
announce that we mustn't make this a political issue, but it is another matter altogether
to enforce^ it.
Politics gummed up the works. We all
had a little fun. Bruce Yorke got rid of
his inhibitions. Dick Bibbs and Doc Morton
backed off into corners for the coming battle
of tiie titans. But students are still in a
daze about the whole thing.
We must admit that our front page
editorial did not clear up the matter any.
It would be clear to only those concerned.
We've heard that "the group" now regrets
it made things so obvious.
Let us forget student government revision for awhile and concentrate for the
next few days on electing a good president
of the Alma Mater Society. This was our
advice to council members last week, but
then council is always reluctant to take pur
Particularly interesting is the Bibbs—
Morton battle which brews itself up in this
Issue. Why is it that two outstanding leaders
of the Engineers find themselves at odds—
and at such a time? Is this an integral part
of the election issue, or is it just a little side
show in addition to the main event? Mr.
Morton could have brought up his charges
at any time, but he brings them up now. Mr.
Bibbs, with equal vigor, strikes back
The two titans of science, struggling for
something the rest of us don't know about,
will probably get more attention than Mr.
Ainsworth and Mr. Creighton. Because
when Science splits, that's news. Students
will have to figure this problem out themselves. Engineers have always been beyond
our comprehension. They're so unpredictable, conservatively speaking.
While we can't say it is necessary to
urge students to vote, we can give you the
usual advice about using your franchise
wisely. You have no doubt studied the platforms of the two candidates very scrupulously. The platforms are quite different in
most respects, and so you should have no
difficulty on that score in choosing your
man. Knowing both candidates well, we
can say that they are both the type to carry
out their platforms as far as possible. Go
to the speeches on Monday. Listen carefully. Make the decision yourself and cast
your vote accordingly.
This is your democracy. Make good use
. of it.
The Brock's Fifth Birthday
Several weeks ago The Ubyssey plan-
nned to devote the issue of February 1 to
recognition of the fifth birthday of Brock
Memorial Hall. Students made so much
news for us, however, that our anniversary
issue was practically shelved. We found
room for the main story and we hope students took note of it.
The history of the Brock, the real story
behind it, is not generally known to the student body. Those who were on the campus
when it was opened have left. The story of
the Brock lies in dormant Ubyssey files and
AMS records.
Students sometimes get the idea that
the Brock is owned completely by the Alma
Mater Society because it is dedicated to student activities, as a memorial to the beloved
Dean and Mrs. R. W. Brock. With this in
mind, they resent administration control of
the Brock and frequent use of it by the
They forget that students paid for only
part of it and that it is officially the property
of the University. Students at one time controlled the Brock, but lost that control because of Student Council stupidity.
The administration is now responsible
for the upkeep of the Brock. Naturally they
must be consulted before students attempt
anything concerning the building.
It may be possible at some future date
for students to take over control of the
Brock and run it for themselves. But students must remember that this would cost
money. Estimates are that it would take
$5000 a year to keep the Brock going. -The
expansion planned for after the war, the
other services to students now being contemplated, would bring the cost up considerably.
We think that President MacKenie
would lend an attentive ear to any concrete
plans to give students control of the Brock.
We were pleased to hear that he asked permission of the Student Council for the recent seed growers' meeting in the main
lounge and offered his apologies for using
the Brock for a faculty meeting. As far as
the administration is concerned it is the
students' building. Relations between students and faculty over use of the Brock
should proceed on a satisfactory basis for
all in the future. Students appreciate the
attitude of the administration.
people and things
•   IT  IS  AMAZING how many people

iyM kill their spare hours.  That
word kill is no idle word.
Here, too, the tables creak under the
strains of mighty loads of books. But there
is a difference to the strain. It is always
concentrated on tiny areas on the table top.
The books are piled high in towering cones.
Here again we find it convenient not to
do any correlating.
But if we did we would find it most
difficult to determine the value of those Caf
experiences which are like no other exp,..
iences on the campus.
Where else could you find discussion
on topics ranging from raspberry fertilization to army colonels, grom gliders to plastic
buttons, from economics to Mary's escapades.
Lots of people spend their spare time
in the little two by four room they call the
Mussoc Room. And that phrase "lots of
people" is no idle one.
They gather in little lots. Their discussion is mostly of music. They are all

by Lucentio English, Players' Club president, who is now in the process of 'taming

We shall go into more of the students'
time-taking hours another day. Until that
time we shall be on the lookout for a sight
no one (to our knowledge) has ever seen.
We shall be on the lookout for a person who
spends his spare hours in the armouries.

of such a person would be out of place here,
' foe Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
We wish to take this opportunity to express our opinion on the
general meeting called by the A
MS on Tuesday, January 30, to
give the undergraduate body a
chance to vote for a new type of
student government
1. The large number of students
who came to the meeting had decided to vote on one of the plans,
and the fact that the Issue was
postponed tended to produce a
measure of apathy.
2. It was obvious that the result
of the meeting was planned to take
the turn it did; i.e., when it became obvious that the majority
of the students were behind the
Advisory Council plan, its opponents, for various motives, attempted to prevent a vote from being
taken by stating that insufficient
thought had been given to tiie
whole matter.
3. We do not agree with tho
charge that students were not presented with the plans soon enough
or ln sufficient detail to give them
an insight into the Issues at staice.
Summaries of the plans were published in issues of The Ubyssey
which appeared during the week
proceeding the general meeting
and the special edition of The U-
byssey gave everyone ample opportunity to study two of the
plans in detail.
4. What were the motives behind
the motion to pass responsibility
back to the shoulders of another
a. To prevent the result of the
vote from affecting the coming
election. We believe, however,
that this should become an election issue since, If the students do
not support the future council hi
its plan for administration of student affairs, then it should not be
in office.
b. Most of EUS felt that the
13 man council proposed by Mr.
Bertram would not give sufficient
representation to the Science Faculty. It is interesting that no discussion centred around this objection to the representation on
the Student Council.
5. Since it became obvious that
the majority of the students were
In fayor of the Advisory Council
plan in principle, we object to the
fact that the vote was not taken
on the plans with the proviso that
minor objections to the accepted
plan be looked into by a special

Dear Sir:
It is with mingled pride and prejudice that I lift my pen to write
to you, sir, in protest against suoh
indiscreet publication of intimate
topics as discussed in your editorial columns by the author of
"Peeper's Papers."
Being a man of restraint, not
given to discussing delicate subjects outside of the privacy of
my sleeping room, I hesitate to
mention the subject of Peeper's
recent discussion, since repetition
may force the subject before tho
innocent eyes of many delicate
spirits who should be spared from
Nevertheless, I feel it is my
duty, as a public-spirited gentleman, to chastise Mr. Peeper on
choosing a topic so delicate, and
executing it in such a brazen manner. Relationships between civilised gentlemen and ladies should
not be debated in print, Mr.
Peeper, but should be kept in the
utmost privacy lest unscrupulous
and uncivilised elements seize
upon the subject to further their
own scandalous ends,
Your humble, obedient servant,
Dear Sir:
In the Isue of "The Ubyssey"
which appeared on the campus on
January 25 of this month, there is
contained, therein, a most deceitful article, "The Peeper's Papers."
What can be the reason that you,
Mr. Editor, permitted such an obvious imitation to be printed in
your paper without recognition as
such accompanying it?

Mr. Addison to be the most eminent writer of the reign of Queen
Anne, but even were he James

A CUP Feature
► THROUGHOUT CANADA, veterans and dischargee
servicemen are taking advantage of the governments
policy of providing free tuition for those students who left
their studies to take up arms against the enemies of their
homeland and their way of thinking and living. Canadian
University Press has compiled an anthology of veterans' activities across the Dominion.
At UNB, veterans compose 4%
of the total enrolment. Forestry
has become the most popular
course here, with Engineering running a close second. A veterans
club was formed in November and
is quite active on the campus. The
ex-servicemen are popular with
the students as ls seen by the fact
that already one is a member of
the SRC, another Is the president
of the freshman class, a third is
president of the International Relations Club. One veteran played
varsity rugger this fall. Brig
Gregg, V.C., veteran of Wart I, II,
is now the president of the University of New Brunswick.
* •  «   •
Forty ex-servicemen are registered here as rehabilitation students. The air force has a slight
majority, although the services
are almost evenly represented.
This is according to information
released in an Interview with the
Registrar here. Two of tne new
students registered in 1944. Others
have registered throughout the
year. The first ex-servicewoman
in a Canadian University,' Heloise
Goodwin, registered here November 13, attending classes on furlough. Laat term veterans have
decided not to form a separate
club in order to Integrate with the
student body.
* •   •   •
The U of M Is cooperating with
affiliated colleges to provide ex-
servicemen with five and a half
months courses covering the first
and second year, beginning April
2. Thus the veterans will have a
good start with next year's work
ln September, it was stated.
* •   •   •
There are at present eight returned servicemen on this campua.
More are expected during the second semester. The board of governors here has approved the construction of a new residence to
accommodate returned men. This
building, when finished will hold
22 students and it is expected to
be completed next September.
When the number warrants lt,
St. F.X. will go on a speed up
program to enable returned men
who enter in January to complete
their year by the following September.
As a part of the program of providing educational opportunities
for returned men, Dr. W. J. Dun-
lop, director of extension studies
at Toronto, has announced a first-
year course in engineering which
will open April 12. After six
month's study, students will enter
the second year in the fall.
Plans have also been made for
an intensive ten-month course in
business including lectures in statistics, accounting and other related subjects. It has been announced that this course will commence on February 5.
At all major universities
throughout Canada, courses have
been established for the returning veterans, The preferred program for this educational scheme
is that of McGill University, which
establishes courses on a three-
year period.
*   •   *   *
The McGill Student Veterans'
Society as well as assisting ex-
servicemen coming on the campus to straighten up individual
problems has made itself felt in
another respect. For the second
time since the formation of the
society, veterans have visited a
Red Cross Blood Donor Division
in Montreal to make additional
contributions to the war effort.
Following the formation of the society last October approximately
25 veterans visited the Red Cross.
With the new influx of veterans
on the campus the society was
able to make another contribution
of blood this month. About 60 ex-
servicemen made blood donations
this week with an important part
of the group consisting of newly
arrived veterans starting courses
nt McGill this January.
Kingston Research
Isolates Pin Type
In spring a young woman's fancy
turns to —pins! There are nine
types of pin types—beware!
Oh Look At Me Now-She
flaunts her emblem of popularity
throughout Ban Rlgh but strangely
enough It seldom appears in public.
Oreen Eyes—She takes it as the
lesser of two evils; losing the man
or being tied down.
Wedding March—She ls quite
Tare but deadly. The pin once
caught ln her velvet-sheathed
claws eventually becomes a ring.
Hot Lips—She capitulates in the
dead of night under proper treatment, and spends her daylight
hours In regret
Jingle Jangle Jingle—She ia not
particular as to donor or faculty
but is merely a collector of hardware. She is the all-Canadian girl,
loyal to services and universities
Everybody's Doin' It—Pins are
all the rage—therefore she has one,
I'll Walk Alone-She proudly
wears a service pin and is definitely not interested in UBC hardware.
Night and Day—She ia the sentimentalist who wears it to bed.
(Not to be confused with the gal
who uses it as a substitute for py-
jama buttons.)
Don't Fence, Me In—She refuses to take a pin under any circumstances. (This is a purely hypothetical case.)

Men Overseas
Die For Lack
Of Your Blood
• HAVE YOU signed up aa a
blood donor yet? If not, why
not? Don't you realize that men,
and women, are dying through
lack of blood plasma? Someone
may be dying right now because
you had not the decency to spend
a couple of hours ln a comfortable
clinic, because you were too lazy
to go downtown, because you
couldn't be bothered to'go on a
special diet for a short eight hours.
THEY aren't asking for anything
but one small portion of blood
which you don't really need anyhow; THEY aren't even asking
you to suffer while you give it.
You lie on a comfortable bed and
painlessly give your blood.
They lie in an agony of mud and
blood and noise and DIE giving
theirs. Won't you please sign up
with the blood donor clinic today
and save a life tomorrow?

Same Doc 26 Years After
STUROIS, Mich. (UP)-When
Charles W. Merchant was wounded badly on a battlefield ln France
20 years ago, an Army doctor took
care of his wounds. Recently, Mr.
Merchant was taken to tho government sanitarium at Sun Mountain, N.Y., for the treatment of
an ailment resulting from his
World War I experiences. Tne
physician who entered the room to
examine him was the same one
he had had on the French battleground.
Cow Helps U. S.
COOK, Minn. (UP)—Expensive
fodder was the $100 war bond Andrew Rolnes' cow ate. First chairman to go over the top in his area,
Roine was on his way to deliver
the bond to a neighbor when he
stopped to feed a calf in his barn.
As he stooped, a cow behind him
filched the bond from his pocket
and ate it. Roine recovered a small
portion of it, enough, he hopes, so
that Washington will replace it.

Undaunted By
Snow Storm
(CUP)—Toronto's latest
blizzard forced the organizers of Toronto's International Student Service drive inside this week but did not
daunt their efforts to collect
the University's objective of
$5566 for needy students at
home and in war-torn areas
in Europe and Asia.
The Mile of Pennies which opened the three-day drive circled
campus buildings and netted more
than $250 in pennies, dimes and
Blue and red tags were sold the
second day of'the drive at 75 and
25 cents for admission to special
entertainment planned in conjunction with the campaign.
Blue tags at 75 cents provided
admission to Skit Night at Convocation Hall and to a dance following the skits in Hart House

admitted holders to an Auction

next week's Library display
planned by Miss Smith. This display is showing some of the work
being done on penicillin on UBC
campus under guidance pf Dr. B.
According to Jim Terrace, who
is working on penicillin in connection with his thesis, the penicillin is produced by mold growing in a broth medium. After ten
to fourteen days growth, the liquid medium is filtered through
a special filter which sterilizes
the solution. Then it Is placed on
bacteria cultures to determine the
degree of inhibition.
Flasks containing the mold
growing in the medium and plates
showing Inhibition of bacteria by
penicillin will be shown in the
display. Pictures of various stages in production of penicillin and
pamphlets will also be shown.

according to
• SPORTS fans find plenty of
healthy athletics thriving in
and about the city these days what
with English Rugby, basketball,
Canadian Football and soccer going full blast.
F o o t b a 11, although defunct
on our campus
these days, got
off to a good
start during this
week as the
local* high
school squads
opened their
colorful season.
But, even
though campus
grid experts don't get a chance to
show their wares, they're still in
the picture. Cam Coady and Cy
Olliver are two of the men to
whom I refer.
These two hustlers have taken
over Lord Byng'a smart outfit and
whipped them into shape, and
then- work is beginning to pay off,
for on Thursday afternoon the
Scarlet and Grey team surprised
the Inter-High loop by squelching a strong Britannia club with
a 7-0 shutout.
But there are other Varsity
boys in the picture, too. John
Farina,   known   as   "Honest
Jawn" In Kitsilano grid circles,
returned to his stamping
grounds this year to produce
another title-threat club.
John waa the popular UBC quarterback of his day, and has produced   plenty   of   championship
squads at Kitsilano High School.
Although this year he hasn't the
material he usually gets from that
district, he's turning out a top-
notch bunch of grid experts.
This was evidenced on Thursday afternoon as the Kltsies took
a lop-sided count from South Burnaby, 17-0. Danny Holden, star
back-field holdover from last sea-
eon, was the star of the tilt, making numerous tackles single-handed and picking up a touchdown
as well.
According to Oardy Gardom,
manager  of  the Thunderbird
hoop squad, we have another
Varsity   man   coaching   out
Prince of Wales way. Tom McCusker is head coach of the
Black and Gold outfit and he'
expects to give the rest of the
grid  teams a scare with his
sweeping end plays.
In fact, the PW boys have already   surprised   their   next-door
neighbors,   Magee.    McCusker's
boys pounded the Red and Black,
line  for a 22-1 trouncing in the
league-opener on Tuesday.
And then there's Rangi Mattu,
that lumbering guard of a few
years back, who's hating trouble
with his King Edward High School
outfit. Latest rumors have it that
Ranji has forsaken his youngsters,
but the Eddexs still have a strong
Of course, we can't forget that
old-timer, Cam Duncan, prexy of
the High School Canadian Football league, who was once a star
gridder on this campus, too.
Maybe grid is In a state of suspended animation on the campus,
but it's still a popular sport with
the campus kids. Take a look at
the crowds next time you see one
of these high school tilts, and
you'll see the Varsity Students
still like their grid.

In the four games the two teams
have played, each squad has two

it means to a team to have sup-
pert. Let's see a real cheering
section out there when the boys
go onto the floor. You'll enjoy it.

• TODAY IS "Reviving Dead
Issue Day" with me. While as
a general principle this may be
poor, this matter is being resurrected to serve a purpose.
Just at the beginning of this year
there was a great stench about the
entry fees for Varsity's minor
league teams. At that time the
downtown papers took their opportunity and, spurred on by certain officials, lashed out at Varsity.
They claimed we had no grounds
for the delay in the payment of
the fees.
Since then I've had the full
story explained to mc and I'd
like to pass lt on to you In the
Interests of justice, and to
serve thc aforementioned purpose.
In the first place, at no time did
Varsity players pay the league fees
out of their own po'ekets. That
was misinformed reporting.
The fees were paid by the Alma
Mater Society, and the reason for
the delay was quite legitimate. The
story runs something like this.
Early in December the league
officials were invited out to a
luncheon. At the meeting, the
whole question of fees was discussed. A compromise was reached and the AMS looked on the
matter as being settled.
A week later a letter was
received from the league demanding that we pay on the
basis of previous years. No
mention was made of the-
meeting, nor the settlement
reached at It.
A letter was returned to them,
reiterating our stand, and asking
that they recognize it, although
they felt it was impossible
cept it, we would be glad to pay
on the old basis.
A week after it was sent, another
letter was returned by the league.
The first paragraph of this letter
stated that since they had received
no reply to their first letter, they
were suspending the teams until
payment was made.
In the last paragraph, however,
they referred to the letter they
denied having received.
As it happened, the letter
suspending the teams was sent
during the holidays when half
the council was out of town,
and the other half was at home
enjoying holidays. As soon as
the holidays were over, payment was made and the teams
were reinstated.
The story boils down to the
league putting the squeeze on us
for as much money as possible,
and getting us into the situation
where they were able to succeed.
And the moral and purpose of
this story follows. We need a decentralization of authority in the
student government. Sports should
be financially independent of the
treasurer of the Society. If the
MAD had had financial independence, the situation would not have
arisen. If sports are to take their
rightful place on this campus They
must be made self-administrating.

Take Memorial
Trophy Opener
By 50-39 Score
• VARSITY'S Inter B Thunderbugs got off to a flying start
in the Memorial Cup series Thursday night when they defeated McKenzie Fraser 50-39 in the double
knock-out competition.
As soon as a team loses two
games, they are automatically out
of the race for the silver. In the
second game of the Senior B finals,
the Thunderbees dropped their
second straight game to the Higbie
quintet 37-32.
In the Inter B fracas, the Royal
City squad saw their zone blasted
wide open by the fast moving
'Bugs in the flnal quarter. The
Blue and Gold played well
throughout except for a few minutes in Uie third quarter. After
leading by eight points, at the half
way mark, they faltered long
enough to give the McKenzie boys
a 33-31 lead at the three quarter
The   'Bugs  hit   their  form
again In the final canto, however, with a 19-polnt sweep to
take the tilt quite handily. The
sharp-shooting of Doug Davidson and Cliff Henderson accounted for 18 and 14 points
respectively.   Despite the effects of a sprained ankle, Gord
Lade shone as a playmaker to
turn In a colorful game,
ttie Thunderbees were not as
fortunate, for they found themselves helpless against the Higbie
zone.  Long shots failed to score
and consequently the squad was
defeated.   Starting  off well,  the
'Bees held a six-point lead at the
end of the first quarter and a two-
point edge at the half. Everything
was lost in the third canto however when Higbies started to click.
Pete  McGeer  was  high scorer
again with a seven-point total, and
scoring was fairly evenly divided
among the others.
