ANNUAL general meeting of the 7,000 members of
University of British Columbia Alma Mater Society will be
held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday in the auditorium.
As past AMS general meetings

VOLUNTEERS are wanted to
help with distribution ot the second
lame of the UBC Thunderbird on
the campus April 1.
Many students were unable to
obtain copies of the last issue, due
to limited distribution, so this Issue

UBC Receives fg
2 New Bursaries
TWO further grants to the University of British Columbia for
fellowships ad bursaries were announced today by President N. A.
M. MacKenxle.
The Standard Oil Company of
British Columbia Limited Scholarship for research in petroleum engineering has now been changed
to a Fellowship and increased in
value from $600 to $1,000. Of this
sum, $150 can be used for equipment connected with the research.
A bursary of $150, given by Mrs.
Angela Bell in memory of her
father, Mr. Nat Bell, will be
awarded annually to a student

IN SPITE of "letter-to-the-editor" claims that chlorination of the city's watt* has been the direct cause of warts,
athlete's foot, arthritis, cancer and other diseases too numerous to mention, not one student or professor interviewed by
a Ubyssey reporter last week waa in favour of its termination.
Dr. D. C. B. Duff of the Uni
versity   Bacteriology   Department
had this statement to make.
"Vancouver has a very good
water supply but it would make
it perfectly safe if we had chlorination on top of it. For many years
we have been giving bacteriology
students a test to determine
whether the chlorine In the water
can be tasted or not. Glasses full
of water both chlorinated and un-
chlorinated were put before the
students and up to this time not
one student has been able to
Identify which is which. This
should be convincing proof of its
Sally Burdette, a post-graduate
bacteriology student, was inclined
to agree with Profesor Duff. "The
ending of chlorination is an asinine idea. It should be kept indefinitely!"
Pat Fowler, president of the
Pre-meds, ls another ardent supporter of chlorination. "Ending
chlorination ls a stupid idea. It
is a well established medical fact
that the chlorination of a city's
water is one of the most Important
ways of preventing its carriage of
water-borne disease. We cannot
afford to take such a chance in
Another pre-med, Bill McWilliams, was of the same mind as
Pat. "When only 4 out of 400 doctors say that chlorination should
end It should be pretty conclusive
that the medical profession ls ln
favour of Its continuance."
George Bloor, a first year Chem
student and a Mammook to boot,
claimed "that with the end of
chlorination comes the black
plague of Europe!" and In a more
serious vein remarked, "Why
should our water be given the
chance of possible contamination
because a few people object to
the mythical chlorine taste?"
A spokesman for the Public
Health Nursing group, whosi.
graduate job would be the inspection of cases of disease caused by
contaminated water if any should
occur, stated that "the ending of
chlorination is utterly absurd. If
people could see the organisms
crawling around in "pure" water
ttosy would appreciate the valut
of chlorination."
In an effort to get the complete.
ly unbiased opinion of students
who had not seen these "organisms crawling around" your reporter interviewed several students
who had no access to the micro
scopes in the bacteriology labs.
Pat Oftewell, a first year Arts
student who entered the University directly from the Motor
Transport Corps of the Wrens, believed, "chlorination is very necessary because of the great influx
cf population from other parts of
the country."
Mr. D. S. Love, just out of the
Army and "against everything
anyway" was of the opinion that
"chlorination was a political
racket although I hardly know
enough about it to form any real
opinion. It just seems to me that
there was too much money spent
for too little done." This was the
only half-hearted objection to
chlorination we could find and
this  was   on   a   purely  political
Our final interview was with Mr.
C. Weldrop, an ex-RCAF man
who thought, "The ending of
chlorination is a great mistake,
there was not enough intelligent
thought on the subject."

i THE UBYSSEY, Friday, March 22, 1946, Page 2
THIS is the time of the year when
editors close their assignment books for the
term and write "thirty" at the end of university life for another session.
A "Swan Song" type of editorial is traditional, as members of the editorial staff of
the Ubyssey are, generally speaking, members of the graduating class. When we pack
up the Ubyssey for another year we usually
indulge in nostalgic whimsy.
But we're turning the last page of our
activity this year with more than a feeling
of nostalgia. The feeling can be described
more accurately as nostalgia combined with
It has been a remarkable year, and although we predicted last September that we
would see the transition between a smalltown university with overgrown high school
attributes, to a mature Canadian educational
institution with a mature, progressive student body, we did not then vision the actual
progress. The necessary blending of the
"young" and the "old," the gigantic leap
in student registsation which threw 7,000
students together in buildings built for 2500,
and sent them all in a frantic hunt for lecture
space, books, food, transportation, and living
accommodations, has brought changes, and
In one short year, this university has done
more, in proportion to its size, for Canadian
servicemen returning to seek an education,
than any other. It has been truly called the
"bootstrap" university.
A student body would be an inanimate
one if it did not keep up with its university
and undergo a change in characteristics as
marked as those which are seen in the
university itself.
And so, the University of British Columbia
student has many more attributes of citizenship than he displayed at the beginning of
the year. And although there is no "typical"
University of British Columbian to be found,
the student body has weathered the inevitable storm as a result of the mingling of the
"old" and the "young," and the outcome is
that a highly interesting and complex student group has resulted from the serviceman
Much has been made of the diversity of
values and ideals between age groups here,
much has been made of the unbroachable
gulf caused by an average four-year age
difference between veterans and non-veterans, but the incompatibility has been exaggerated.
There have been many intense teacup
tempests. Vividly accentuated interest in
politics, religion, and any topic as long as
it's controversial, has come as a distinct surprise to undergraduates long accustomed to
controversial lethargy.
Editors of four years ago, and even one
year ago, wouldn't recognize, the university.
When it's having fun it is having fun more
enthusiastically these days, because of a
young, vociferous group known as tiie
Jokers Club, and when it's serious it's very,
very serious, because of such groups as the
Students, however, have learned that they
could get along with each other. The University has proved itself a proverbial melting
Student initiative is also accentuated.
Undergraduates are campaigning for their
own medical school, forwarding their own
faculties, and financing their own gymnasium.
All this has happened in a year. The
university has travelled from "here" to
"there." Group interaction with its attendant woes has been fascinating to watch.
It has been an interesting year, and although we are not exactly sorry to close the
books, and cannot feel truly nostalgic because the university we knew this year was
not in any way similar to the university we
have known before, we hate to write "thirty"
because it has been an interesting year to
sit on the sidelines with a notebook and
watch the university crowd going by.
WITH REGISTRATION next fall on an
"assembly line" basis; with 8000 students
expected in a cafeteria that seats only 500;
with 1500 graduates spewing forth, with or
without gowns, in 1948, it becomes increasingly apparent that higher education is being
revolutionized before our very eyes, though
some of us may be sitting too far back to
see it.
Soon a college degree will be our common
heritage, like superfluous hair and measles.
The problem facing the universities, then,
is that of the most efficient mass production
of graduates, by combining course credits
with Kaiser methods.
The following product of a hot, damp
brain represents a scene from the UBC
campus of, say, 1986.   It is Visitors' Day,
and Dr. Blair Kromite, a brilliant young
graduate in Soil Studies who works at the
University as a janitor, is acting as guide for
Mr. Flintlock, an elderly alumnus.
FLINTLOCK: Amazing!  Truly amazing.   I
had no idea it as like this, you
know.    I'd seen the smoke over
Point  Grey,  of  course,  but  the
change since I was here in forty-
six. .. .
KROMITE: You haven't seen anything yet.
Here is our main building, where
we do all the assembling of courses
and students.   Wipe your feet and
step right in, won't you?
(They enter a huge glass building filled
with the rumble of overhead cranes carrying
cases of empty Coke bottles and, here and
there, a professor.)
FLINTLOCK—Amazing.  Surely this building must be a mile long?
KROMITE: Two miles.   The student starts
at this end, where you see the green
conveyor belt, and moves along the
academic assembly  line until he
reaches   the  far  end,   a  finished
graduate, ready for the employment
bureau.   To your left lies. . . .
FLINTLOCK: Pardon me interrupting, but
what is that large neon sign flashing?
KROMITE: "Omnus Est," the Univer^ty
motto.  Used to be "Tuum Est" but
we felt the second person singular
was too restrictive.   You'll notice
we have the signs every thousand
feet, replacing the old courses in
the Classics.
FLINTLOCK: Indeed.    And would it be
possible to see one of the classrooms?
KROMITE: Certainly.   Come with me.
(They move through electric eye doors
into a darkened amphitheatre stirring with
a mass of students.)
KROMITE:  (whispering)    This is English
13095, or first-year English.    Ah,
yes, they're taking up Julius Caesar.
FLINTLOCK: Julius Caesar?   In the dark?
KROMITE: It's a filmlecture.  We give them
the Disney  version  of the play.
Caesar's a frog, Brutus is a duck/
Cassius is a weasel, and so on.
They love it.
FLINTLOCK: (queruolusly) Isn't it a little
dangerous, having mixed classes in
the dark?
KROMITE: Not at all.   Beginner's Sex is
a prerequisite for this course: just
enough to discourage them.
(They step into a second large classroom)
KROMITE: This is a special class for freshmen who have somehow reached
college without learning to talk.
FLINTLOCK: Fascinating. Is this one of
the students passing us?
KROMITE: Yes. (to student) Hey, there!
Say something, will you?
STUDENT: (beaming) My name is Wilbur
Sampson. I have paid my fees. My
name is Wilbur Sampson.  I have. •
KROMITE: Thank you, that's enough.
(Waves student on.)
FLINTLOCK: Remarkable progress. You
must have some extremely clever
KROMITE: Not necessarily. On this continent, you know, all lecture material
in every course is standardized, so
we concentrate on getting lecturers
with a pleasing radio voice, for the
classroom PA systems. It was a
great day for education when
Sinatra accepted a chair at Columbia.
KROMITE: Now I'd like to. show you our
graduation  wing.    Jump  on this
staff conveyor.
(They are whisked to the far end of the
building, a noisy, bustling area.)
KROMITE: (shouting and pointing to a long,
gabbling line) There's an allotment
of new graduates waiting to go out
on the testing ground.
FLINTLOCK: It must be quite a job, giving
exams to all these people.
KROMITE: It would be, but we only
examine every tenth student. If
we find a bug in one of his subjects
we reject the whole batch of grads.
Cheaper that way.
FLINTLOCK: Could I speak to one of them?
KROMITE: Of course. (Calls graduate
FLINTLOCK: Could you tell me, sir, what

(Graduate recoils slightly, glancing furtively from face to face.)

WE, AS A STUDENT BODY, are vitally interested today
in legislation now before the House in Victoria on the
maximum weekly hours of work. We will all be looking for
employment in the not distant future, and it is vital to us
that nothing be done now that will restrict our opportunities
at that time.
The present maximum weekly
hours of work is 48. In some
Quarters it te argued that it should
be reduced to 44, or even to 49,
in order to cope with the reestablishing of men as they are
discharged from the Armed Forces.
They would probably also maintain that the hourly wage rates
should be increased to allow employees to take home the same
weekly net earnings.
Others reason that such an
idded cost could not be absorbed
by industry, and that it would
have to be added to the selling
price. This, they maintain, would
result in such a high selling price
that, in normal times, they could
not be sold in world markets in
competition with other countries
where the standard of living is
so much dower than on this continent. This would be disastous

however, that in industries where

desperately needed for housing,

reduce the present weekly lumber production.

Week-end  Review
And Preview By lee gidney
CLARK GABLE' has returned to
the screen, if you've been waiting
for Dim, in a dreadful little business called "Adventure."
The story of this opus was
"derived almost by brute force
from the Clyde Brion Davis novel
The Annotated'," — this according
to Time's reviewer who also goes
out on a limb by saying that "it
also happens to generate as bright
a piece of cinema comedy as has
shown up this season," and that
"the steady gleam of the picture
is the inimitable, jug-eared, perdurable, Glark Gable, 45, back
from the wars and still going
We don't really object to Time's
luce-ly constructed paragraphs
going strong for Gable. We do
ourselves sometimes.
BUT ANYONE who calls that
"cinema" either a comedy or
bright will have to do It over our
dead editorial bones. We find
ourselves as usual far more nearly
in tune with the New Yorker's
version—to wit—"The film then Is
Incoherent, Maudlin, vulgar, absurd and altogether depressing.
Its dialogue is only once removed
from gibberish and Its principals
don't seem to know from minute
to minute Just what they're supposed to be up to.
This is not completely fair to
either as an estimate of the en*
tertalnment potential of "Adventure." The story of the philiso-
phlc sailor, as Mr. Davis wrote it,
has been taken over by two other
writers, one Frederick Hazllti
Brennan who writes for the pulp
magazines and some other unidentified character whose influence either way was probably not
decisive. The resulting story has
all the half-baked poetry and undisciplined action of the pulps.

Clark Says Allied Atom Job Registration   ^2^121 WHAT PRICE ARCHITECTURE ?   *JteJt*~
Bomb Secrecy'Mistake' Deadline April 15
ONLY SOLUTION of the problem of world disunity is
to put world security above national prestige and imperialism, declared Dr. A. F. B. Clark, UBC French professor,
addressing the Russion Study Group of the Social Problems
Club Monday.
Dr. Clark said he was disappoint- ——.—————.—.
ed by the nationalistic attitude of
tho Soviet Union, and held that
the spirit dominating Stalin was
similar to that of Churchill in refusing Roosevelt's request that
Hong Kong be returned to China.
Iho bulk of Dr. Clark's address
was devoted to actions of Britain
and the United States which had
caused Russian suspician. He urged
his audience to look at tho atomic-
bomb question from tho Russian
point of view.
Letters To
The Editor
Stating that tho world policy of
thi non-Soviet allies was weak
because incoherent, he suggested
that Russia, realising this weak-
cois, "perhaps" was following tho
potioy of developing Communist
"oells" with a Soviet-dominated
world state in view.
"Our only answer Is to develop
a world stare that wiM appeal
mererto the people of Ae world,"
he declared.
Bo hold that tho present UNO
setup was not a true world government.
"The people who wanted a world
state instead of tho UNO wore
called idealist* Thoy said it would
have to be that or nothing. I
think the only way Is to take it
out of the power of any one nation
to make war," Dr. Clark claimed.
Outlining what he held were
mistakes of tho United States and
Oreat Britain, ho said, "I range
myself with those who think the
decision to reserve knowledge of
tho atomic bomb to ourselves wu
a fundamental mistake. That seems
to be the opinion of the majority
of the scientists who worked on
tho project."
Describing the attitude of the
western powers to the Franco
regime as inconsistent, the speaker
said Russia must wonder whether
their dislike of franco was less
than their fear of what might replace him.
Turning to Germany, he said the
Incoherence of policy of France,
Britain and the United States there
WM a sign of weakness. "Ihe
Russians maintain we are keeping
fascist governments in power in
Europe," he added.
The "unfortunate" veto proviso
decided on at San Francisco had
as strong support from the United
States as from Russia, Dr. Clark
British Middle-East policy had
sbeen to support reactionary feudal
leaders rather than popular move,
ments. "Russia's policy ln Iran is
to identify herself with any popular
movement, sincerely or insincerely," he stated.
Commenting on the recent move
of the student group to have the
Russian language offered at UBC,
Dr. Clark said ho was glad to seo
this step token, but pointed out tho
diffeculty of learning the language.
Some American universities had
centred their Russian studies
around courses on government,
literature and art rather than tho
language, ho added.

Dear Madam:
Writing upon Jack Ferry's blast
anent the fares question and
would like to underline his blatant
refusal to face the central issue of
it, vis.}
"Is the BCE in a position to
carry such expense?"
To this we can give no honest
answer but a thundering "yes"
if we review the information below.

25%, for lt was cut Into by excess
profits taxes and long overdue expenses for replacement of equipment that became outmoded and
decrepit in the fat pre war years

they much need.
The Legion is to be congratulated upon taking the stand tor

Dear Madam:
Your editorial on Tuesday mentioned the fact that "the public
of the province in general have
never acknowledged the university." I wonder if it can't just
as truthfully be said that in past
years the university has not acknowledged the province, but has
been "Vancouver-minded."
For instance, in the 1930's, a significant portion of the university-
going population of Nelson (Van-
couverltes consult a roadmap)
was claimed, not by UBC, but by
the U of Alberta or Wash State
College. Restriction of courses at
UBC had something to do with
this. The absence of residences
for outsiders certainly had some
bearing on the matter, and I believe I am not unreasonable In
advancing another, viz., that the
stigma of "coming from the Interior" was not felt so strongly at
other Institutions.
I do believe that this attitude,
subconscious or otherwise, on the
part of students and administration, that only Vancouver residents are "college material" has
been steadily dimming, and that
this year, at last, the University
of B.C. exists for the citizens of
B.C. rather than for Vaneouver-
ites alone. I trust that this rebirth
in UBC's outlook will be reflected
in an awakening interest In ths
university throughout tho province. Vancouver has, before this,
despite the fact that she contains
over 2-5 of our population, been
slower than the rest of B.C. In
recognizing a good thing when she
saw it Maybe a diet of hayseed
might broaden the outlook of
soma of Vancouver's irate "downtown public," huh?

Canada produces no tea; India produces no

India imports Canadian Nickel and articles
containing Canadian Nickel.
Less than three per cent of the Nickel produced
in Canada is consumed in Canada. The rest is
exported, and the money received helps to pay
for tea and other products necessary to good
living in Canada. Canada cannot keep on
importing from other lands unless Canadian
goods are exported.
Also, we must continue to export Canadian
Nickel if we are to continue to employ thousands of Canadians in the Nickel mines,
smelters and refineries, and other thousands
who produce the lumber, power, steel,

NO BASKETBALL court will
be included in the new War
Memorial Gymnasium, a spokesman for the board of governors
announced today. The decision
was made in a rush meeting of the
body for the express purpose of
making Pub-Council basketball
games impossible.
"We can't have the new council
wiped out like this each spring,
it's too confusing," he announced.
'I'm confused," he added.
Pubsters, relaxing after their
12,503,605(275,904,568 to 0 victory
Tuesday noon, were noncommdtal.
"What's the difference?" queried
Editor-in-chief Mardee Dundas, in
a flash of sheer inspiration, which
she had been wearing during the
game, "they weren't alive anyway.'
No council members were available for comment
Star of the game was Tuesday
editor Bruce Bewell, who wu responsible for tho complete shutout
scored by the Pub. He accomplished tho feat by swinging from the
Pub basket by his pipe and blow
ing stray council members to the
rafters whenever they leaped to
shoot. Rumors that several student
legislators are still splattered on
the roof of the gym are Incorrect,
however, If s Just pigeons.
The Pub attack featured a flying
wedge guaranteed to shatter the
traditional woman-for-man defense used by council. Unfortunately the outside man caught his
stays going through the basket
and hung up the play.
At this point three councU members were found tunneling through
the backboard to the Pub basket,
but the followers of Thoth were
prepared, and, armed with a flit
gun full or DDT, swiftly chased
them back into the woodwork.
CouncU now assembled their
forces and charged under section
12 part 3, but thou* attack broke up
ln confusion when someone told
them their action was affecting the
The referee awarded Ted Klrkpatrlck two free shots, but this
backhanded move backfired when
a flustered medic gave him penicillin instead of adrenalin.  A con
certed rush by council's first string
drove the Pubsters into cover behind their own basket, but just as
a perfect setup seemed accomplished they discovered that they hsd
forgotten to bring the ball.
The frantic search which follow-'
ed was concluded when Totem
editor Bill Stewart appeared atop
council's basket with the ball on
yoyo, cinching the game with a
few quick passes before council
could assemble their neurones for
a counter attack.
Stewart then gave tho ball to a
Totem deadline, which kept slipping back out of reach until ploy
was stopped at half time.
The dirty eleven's second string
was brought on at the beginning
of the second half for a sleeper
play, but this failed when the
councillors, away from th familiar
surroundings of the council chamber, were unable to stay asleep.

briefly to ask a few thousand
questions, but was satisfied when

ESTABLISHMENT of'a Department of Architecture at
the University of British Columbia is being advocated by
the Pre-Architecture Club.
"There is a need for more architects in British Columbia," said
Mr. Watson, president of tha Architectural Institute of B.C. when
he spoke to the club Tuesday.
"Almost half those men now in
practice in Canada are over 50
years of age."
He explained that, "architecture
is regional, climate and topography influencing both design and
engineering. Therefore there
should be a special school of Architecture here dealing with the
needs of this province.
"A department of Architecture
at this university would influence
and eventually direct the growth
of B.C. and Vancouver along lines
of beauty, utility, and health," he
At present the nearest school of
Architecture is in Winnipeg and
it is "ludicrous" for 40 or 50 students to travel over 1800 miles to
follow their courses, according to
Mr. Watson. Many of these students are financially unable to go
east.  .

COMES the last sane issue of
The Ubyssey and it's high time
for Luke to write his swan song.
Now I really know very little
about any kind of fowl, let alone
a swan. The only birds I've had
much truck with are the various
species of Thunderbirds which I,
as a sports scribe, have studied for
the past three years.
We have all
kinds of different Thunderbird types here
on the campus.
There are the
ones that scam,
per about the
stadium, playing
with an over-
sized leather-
egg. And then
there are the
ones that weigh
themselves down with padding and
go charging around the same field
with a similar egg that is more
pointed on the ends.
We also have the indoor variety—
the ones which romp about like
wild chickens in the gym, bouncing
at>. unnaturally spherical egg which
they shoot into a bottomless basket
from time to time.
A more modest type is to be
found on the upper playing field
almost every Wednesday or Saturday. These play with an egg simi-
larto the one employed by the
Indoor species, but they use their
feet rather than their hands.
Wo have two distinctive sets
that take to the water, too. One
goes in for actual amphiblousnsss
while the other prefers to remain
dry in queer, narrow boats. The
latter type can easily be Identified
by the extremely long wing it
acquires and uses for propulsion
whenever it goes forth on water.
Then there are those which walk
around with tiny white eggs, placing them on the ground every now
and then, and trying to hit hell out
of them with peculiarly shaped
There sin others, too, but we
haven't got space tor them all.
(At least that's the customery excuse used by most sporting editors.)
But to get back to our swan song.
It doesn't seem so very long ago
that I first walked into the Pub
back in the fall of '49. I was a Uttle
nervous at first, especially when I
handed my tint story to Chuck
Claridge who bossed .the back page
of The Ubyssey in those days.
But there were no screams from
Cheery Chuck. Ho never did get
excited much, but he wu always
happy . . . and that's a good way
to be. Taking over from Chuck
two years ago, I was pretty scared
again, for there always seems to
be a funny feeling-accompanying
any attempt to step into somebody
else's boots.
Not knowing how to write a swan
song, I sort of cheated by looking
through The Ubyssey files to see
what Cheery Chuck composed. How
well I remember how Chuck slaved
on that final epic. It was no
cinch, and tears trickeld gently
as he finished off with "Goodbye
Tyo year* is a loaf enough

was flUed with plenty of stirring
memories. It was a tough grind,
at times, but I'm not sorry for what
I've done. You may quote me as

These last two years have been
big years for sport at UBC. It
has been an era of reconstruction,
one might say, and I was somewhat
lucky to have the privUege of
taking charge of the sports page
In such a successful period.
It just goes to make it that much
harder to finish off this final column. And now I can more fully
understand how Chuck felt when
he wrote those famous last words.
But I can't let Chuck down. And
I can't break the tradition set by
the rest of tho sports editors who
have gone before me. I've got to

Although a coach has not as yel

for the position during the summer, and since spring training has
been skipped this year, the squad
will probably start training early

Olaf Ulland To Soar On Grouse
In Memorial Gym Tournament
PLANS are now near completion for the mammoth giant
Slalom and Jumping tournament which will be held on
Grouse Mountain on April 7, with all proceeds being donated
to the UBC War Memorial Oym Fund.
Snow Queeng, raceg, Jumping, with the Jokers putting
in their little fun skit are on the agenda, which, when all put
together, promisee a spectacular exhibition and a lot of fun.
Twenty odd skiers and jumpers from the United States
have signified their intentions of coming up for this event.
Among the noted is Olaf Ulland, former world'a champion
jumper who leaped 360 feet to establish the record jump.
Dave Spence, chairman for the event, has promised that
this year's tournament, sponsored by the Vancouver Sun,
will see more than 2000 spectators up Grouse and that more
than $2000 will be realized for the Oym fund.    .
The one run Giant Slalom race will be held from the
Peak of Grouse down to the bottom of the Nose Dive, a
vertical drop of some 900 feet. The bottom part of this
course lies on a slope of about 50 degrees which, in a slalom
race, is something to think about.
The jump has been repaired and some exceptional jumps
are promised. Without the trestle, which collapsed last fall,
jumps will be limited to 125 feet or under. In any case,
thrills and spills are promised to all who journey up Grouse
Mountain on April 7.
Hard working Sandy Martin and John Frazee have really
been digging in to make this event a success and special
thanks should be forwarded to these boys.
Remember, April 7, Grouse Mountain and all proceeds
to UBC's War Memorial Oym Fund.
FHret trip to California since 1940
healthy boost here last Tuesday with the
announcement from the Men's Athletic Directorate that the UBC Golf Club will send
a six-man team on a two-week tour of the
Pacific Coast early in May.
It will be the first trip for a Varsity divot
squad since 1940 when the club last sent a
representative sextet to California. And this
year's trip presents a tough schedule for the
Thunderbird aggregation which will be packed early next month.
The UBC divoters will match strokes with
teams from nine of the top coast colleges, including Stanford University which has won
the National Inter-Collegiate Golf Championship several times.
Commencing the 2000-mile jaunt ^on May
7, the Canadian college boys tangle with a
squad of Vikings from Western Washington
College in Bellingham on that date.
Continuing southwards, they tackle the
highly-touted team of Huskies from the University of Washington in Seattle on the fol-
Moving into Oregon, the next stop for the
'Birds is Portland with two matches slated
for them on Rose City courses. University
of Portland's Pilots are listed for May 9, and
Reed College's golfers meet the Blue and
Gold stars on the following afternoon.
South to sunny California, and the University of California is next on the slate.
This team match will be held in Berkeley
on May 13. But the most important contest
will be featured on May 14 when the 'Birds
meet tiie smooth-swinging Stanford six at
Palo Alto.
San Francisco will see the British Columbia students playing the University of San
Francisco on May 15 before they turn
around and head for home. But the matches
don't end in the city of the Golden Gate.
Back to Salem, evergreen capital of Oregon, and the local golf team meets Willamette
University's aggregation on May 18, finishing
off the trip the following day with a final
go against Oregon State College's top fairway experts in Corvallis.
Since the UBC squad has not yet been
chosen, president Howie Fry of the Golf
Club expects some of the most torrid competition in the history of the campus
organization in the remaining two weeks
of play before exams.
RUGGER ACE —Here is Maury
Moyls, starry young 'Birdman who
will probably be taken for the first
five-eighths position for tiie Varsity team when they travel to the
Island this week-end. Maury is
replacing Bob Croll who is out
with an injury.
Faculty Ready
For£Big Game
SOCCER gets on the War Memorial Gym bandwagon with aU
divisions ot local footbaU participating in a thrilling double-header
to be staged in the Stadium, Wednesday afternoon, March 27.
The first tilt matches the bloodthirsty, red-shirted 4th year Chemical Engineers against the usually
complacent Faculty. Both coaches,
Dr. Todd of the Faculty, and Undo,
Bortoiln of the Engineers, have
issued statements of proposed
strategy, and it is beUeved by weU
informed quarters that this so-
called game wiU undoubtedly be
the last grudge match between
two footbaU (?) teams. Both the
DFA and the SPCA have been
notified of the coming event, and
legislative action is pending.
The last meeting of the two
squads resulted in (among other
things) a narrow 3-2 victory for
the Engineers, and a Faculty challenge for another game. The professors are asserting themselves on
two points; they are certain that
the students want to pass their final
exams, and they are sure that the
game wiU ultimately end in a
Faculty victory.
Dr. Todd's line-up includes Doc.
tors MacKenzie, Shrum, Seyer
Lloyd, Warren and Gunning, as
weU as Bob Osborne, BUI Wolfe,
George Rush and Norm Cooke.
Dr. Todd is stiU trying to contact
the two oldtimers, Dr. T. Tim Tik
snd    Prof.    Horb    Gurkaboddle.
The second game is an exhibition
match between our own Varsity
eleven and the Dominion Champion
Radlals. The Coast League and
the B.C. Electric have volunteered
their services in promoting this
match for the War Memorial Gym
Drive. Big Block man Dal Grauer,

Varsity XV Travels To Victoria;
Vets Meet lomas In Tisdall Tilt
WHEN THE Varsity Thunderbirds take the field against
James Bay Wanderers at MacDonald Park in Victoria tomorrow, they will be fighting to retain the highly-coveted
Rounsefel Cup, emblem of the B.C. Senior Rugby Championship.
Last year, Varsity's undefeated team doubled the score
on the Victoria Naval College and came up with a 24-12
victory to win the crown for the first time in several years.
With many former rugby stars      ———————^^^—^—
returning this season, competition
in the Vancouver Rugby League
increased and as a result, a three
way battle between Meralomas,
Vets, and Varsity for top honors
ensued right from the opening of
the MUler Cup race. After losing
to the Vets in the first round ot
play, the Thunderbirds came back
strongly and finished the series
with seven straight wins to capture the trophy.
They also added another last
week when they eliminated Ex-
Britannia from further competition
for the1 TisdaU Cup. This late season spurt shows that the squad is
near its peak and can be counted
on to give a good account of itself
in the Rounsfel Cup battle.
