ascribed the British conquest of India
to beef and whiskey, Dr. Havail of
the University of Bombay told a
meeting of Philosophy studenU Wednesday.
"The first thing they noticed about'
the British conquerors was their liberal use of beef whiskey and women,"
lie said, "and naturally they thought
the superior British power came from
eating sacred cows and drinking forbidden liquor,"
Dr. Havail proposed a synthesis of
eastern and western phiosophies as
the ultimate solution to India's problem.
"Wine, women and song, by themselves don't suit the Indian temperament,"  he  added. ,

The Rules and Regulations concerning campus activities
will be strictly enforced. ...

forth a set of rules which his committee will enforce according to the
provisions of the code of the Alma

eating lunches in the lounge are
strictly taboo according to the edict
istued by the committee.
Card playing in the cafeteria will

W. G. Ireland
Rumor Spreads
Rumors that Willard G. Ireland will succeed Dr. W. Kaye
Lamb as UBC librarian are
still unconfirmed.
Questioned about the report which
appeared in a downtown newspaper,
Prof. G. C. Andrew, Assistant to the

It k\ not The Ubyssey's policy to lay down
here a rigid program and policy, hut merely to
state a £ew principle; by which its editorial
policy will be guided.
First of all, il. must lie made clear that
oujt, policy is entirely independent of any
othej- university organization, including Students' Council. This principle was established
sev$ra,l years ago when tlie editor-in-chief
who ex officio held a seat on council was
separated from that body for the stated purposes, of making him independent of Council's
influence in order that he might be in a
position to. criticize Council's policy.
The Ubyssey is the official organ of the
student body with a means of expressing its
opinion on Council actions, The only other
way, in which an individual student, can effectively approve or disapprove of Council's
actions is by calling an Alma Mater meeting,
a step very few are willing to take,
IL is Ihe Ubyssey's intention to examine
clo;. Iy and discuss freely through this column
any action of Council which we feel merits

spirit of fault finding, but  in the hope that

'Birds Meet
League Leaders Here
For Important Tilt
When the Thunderbirds go
looking for their first football
win of the season this Saturday, they will run up against
a team that owes its present
position to a man that has only
made six points so far.
Lewis and Clark holds the unique
distiction of holding the Northwest
conference leadership after three
one-point  victories.
The Pioneers edged Whitman 14-13
scraped by Linfield 20-19 and then
eked out a narrow 14-13 call ovei
previously undefeated Willamette.
The hero of this piece is Chuck
Allen who has kicked six out of seven
converts to make Lewis and Clark
the only untied, undefeated team in
the conference.
Coach Joe Huston has been repeatedly warning his men against
over confidence, pointing to UBCV
upset 27-6 triumph last season.
The Pioneers base their winning
ways on a smooth working T-forma-
tion and the smart play calling of
quarterback Freddie Wilson, a University of Oregon transfer.
Another star of the visitors offensive firmament is light weight Hal
Ellmers. It was Ellmers who showed
the only spark when his team went
down to defeat last year.
Hope for a 'Bird win brightened
today with the. announcement that
both Dougie Reid and Bob Murphy
are in good shape for t'he tilt.
Gil Steer who played practically a
whole game against the College of
Idaho is also raring to go, as is Dick

Husband Leads Legion
To Crosscountry Win
Track Club Takes Second Spot
In Annual 'Mural Classic
Bill Husband yesterday led his Legion powerhouse to an
easy victory in the Annual Intramural Cross Country run.
Established as overwhelming favorites in the pre-race predictions the Legion squad scored an easy victory over the
Track Club "A" team, their closest pursuers, 24 points to 55.
Mura '
Medal;, t "Dick Hanley's unconscious first nine holes against defending champ Doug Bajus won him the
right to meet Don Bodie in the finals
of the University Golf Club Championship, this week.
Hanley's putter went completely
crazy on the outgoing nine as it
sank birdie puts which ranged from
2 to 20 feet on the second, third,
fourth, fifth, eighth and ninth holes.
But the climax came on the par 4
sixteenth when Hanley rammed in a
curling 45 footer to clinch the match,
2 and 1.
Bajus was playing superior golf,
but Hanley was unbeatable. He
turned in a brilliant 32 going out and
came home with a 37 for a total of 69.
Bajus with his even par 71 was just
not  quite  good  enough.
In the other semi- final match Don
Bodie edged out fellow Marine Drive
member Bob Esplin 2 and 1.

second flights are requested to fill
