Volunteers f rom the general
student body may be appointed by
Student Council to serve on a
campus standing committee for
NFCUS affairs.
The Council decided at its regular meeting last Monday night
that it would select committee
members from a list of those students who volunteer by next
Monday night.
Applications should be addressed
to Joy Donegani, Council secretary.
Members of the Council have
expressed the hope that the volunteers will provide a representation of all extra-curricular activities.

Dewar Code Revisals Put
To Test At Council Meet
First amendment and recommendations for further
amendments have been presented to Student Council and
USC by Ray Dewar, Chairman of the Revision Committee.
The amendment to the Discipline Article of the Code
divorces the disciplinary and the judicial elements of the
USC, and sets up two separate committees for the respective
ISS Invites Clubs
To Noon Meeting
All clubs on the campus interested in International Student Service have been invited to a meeting
to be held in Arts 104 at 12:30 p.m.
Philip Evans, sophomore member
of Student Council and the member
in charge of ISS on the campus,
stated that the main purpose of the
meeting will be to set up a .committee to put ISS on an active
basis at UBC with a campaign for
funds in the near future. Already,
the money realized from the dances
which are to be held after all
Conference basketball games is
earmarked for ISS.
In making the announcement,
Evans stressed that the money will
go more for rehabilitation of overseas students than for relief. "This
includes the transportation of many
of these students to Canada to continue their studies." he stated.
The Canadian committee in Toronto, which is under UBC graduate Gordon Gaimiplbell, has announced its objective as one dollar
from every Canadian student. This
would place UBC's abjective at
about $8,000.
Medical Faculty Still In Air
No definite decisions were reached regarding the establishment of
a Medical Faculty at the University
of British Columbia when President N. A. M. MacKenzie met the
Cabinet of the B. C. government
at Victoria Tuesday to discuss the
possibilities of such a faculty.
A member of the executive of
the Pre-Medical Club on hearing
the* news stated, "The Pre-Meds
were very unhappy that even now
no definite decisions have been
Main purpose of the meeting was
to discuss the reports submitted
by- consultants on medical education who were commissioned last
August by the Board of Governors of the university to ac.vise
on the establishment of a faculty
of medicine at UBC.
The amount, of money required
to establish a medical faculty of
first class standing was the most
important consideration. According to the reports submitted by the
experts consulted, the minimum
capital expenditure of die Faculty
of Medicine is estimated at $6,000,-
000. Medical school buildings will
require $2,000,000 and a teaching
hospital $4,000,000. It's minimum
annual budget is recommended at
$400,000 exclusive of the operating
cists of the hospital.
According to Dr. MacKenzie,
one of the reasons for the government's hesitation may be
seen when we remember that
a few years ago the budget of
the whole university was less
than the amount that would be
required for the medical faculty alone.
The report recommended .that
construction shckild not be commenced until furids for the establishment and maintenance of a
faculty of medicine of adequate
standard have beesn assured. One
of the authorities summed up the
attitude on this point by saying,
"Anything less than excellence
would be an unrjustiflahle expense
and a detraction rather than an
asset to the community."
The report stated that the Faculty of Medicine must possess its own
teaching hospital of about 500 beds,
adjacent to the medical school
building. All consultants agreed
that no existing hospital in Vancouver could meet the needs of
the principal teaching hospital of
a medical School.
Dr. MacKenzie, when asked what
his advice to Pre-Med students
who want to enter a Medical school
next fall said that if their average
is a first class or a high second
class they should try immediately
to obtain admittance to any of the
established Canadian Medical
schools but if their average is a
low second class they should turn
to some other profession.
Under the Code as it has existed,
the discipline committee member
who charged a student with a
crime also served on the court,
and, in the eyes of many, the erring member was convicted as soon
as he was charged.
The amendment, currently being
enforced pending the final decision of the semi-annual AMS meet-
ting, splits the USC into two sections, the judicial and the disciplinary, and provides for a speedy
trial by a single judge or, if requested by the court, dependent or
prosecutor, a trial by the judicial
The Council has taken action on
a resolution calling for a meeting
of the men's and women's athletic
directorates to consider a joint
board to govern all campus athletic
activities. This would put all athletics under one budget, instead of
the two that now exist, besides
eliminating much duplication.
Another resolution called for a
new position on the Council to replace the eliminated athletic member; a position of a Second Vice-
President with no particular duties
assigned to him by the constitution.   .
It was also recommended that
the President of the LSE be elected by the student body instead
of the societies that he represented.
This step was taken in view of the
fact that he is called upon to consider motions involving all members of the AMS besides his special duties.
The final resolution (called for
amendments which would lengthen
the period of nominations for positions on the Student Council.
Livingstone/   Harwood
First Candidates In Race
Poll Laws
President of the LSE will be
elected in future by the whole
student body rather than by Literary and Scientific Executive members only, announced Joy Donegani, AMS secretary Tuesday.
AMS Election Committee made
this decision Tuesday because it
was felt that as the president voted
on matters affecting all students,
his previous election was not sufficiently representative.
Rules regarding publicity posters
for election candidates were revised at the meeting. Candidates
will be allowed five large (21 x 28)
and three small (21 x 14) posters.
Other officers are permitted five
small size posters. A section at the
north end of the Armory will be
allocated for purposes of election
The Election Committee recommended that statements by candidates be published in the Tuesday
edition of The Ubyssey and that
those by seconders of candidates
appear on Saturday. In the past,
announcements which appeared in
the Saturday Ubyssey were found
to reach a smaller proportion of
students than those in other issues.
Candidates for president and
secretary will be allowed 150 words
for their announcements, and their
seconders 100 words. The other
offices are allocated 100 and 75
words respectively. Satements
which are more than five words
over the limit will be returned to
persons concerned for cutting down.
Pictures of all candidates, together with their platforms will
be published in The Ubyssey's
Tuesday issue before the election.
The committee decided to wait
and see what the USC sub-committee had to propose on (1)
supervision of voting and (2) place
and manner of voting. It must approve the procedure of each candidate before any action is undertaken.
The executive will assign certain
hours during which candidates can
be interviewed before elections
commence. Campaigning will begin
at 8:30 a.m. on the Thursday which
follows closing of nominations. Two
extra weeks of campaigning will
be provided by this new system.
Freshies Banned
From Queen Race
"Since the Mardi Gras is primarily a fraternity-sorority function, and since 1947 freshettes will
be eligible for candidacy next
year, we have decided that there
will be no freshette candidate for
Mardi Gras Queen this year," announced Frank Sweatman, co-
chairman of the Mardi Gras committee.
This statement was made in
answer to a letter from the Women's Undergraduate Society executive asking that a definite
policy be instituted in regard to
the freshette candidacy.
Last year a first y«ar student,
Ruby Dunlop, ran for the position, and won the crown.
"Each year's committee decides
its own policy, but my advice to
the 1948 committee is allowed sorority members only, to enter the
contest",   said   Sweatman.
Mackenzie Lauds Efforts
As Legion Opens Canteen
Campus canteens were praised by Dr. N. A. M. McKenzie
in his address at the formal opening of the Legion Dry Canteen Monday, January 13.
''Canteens aibout the campus,
where* students can meet their
friends in an atmosphere of good-
fellowship, fill a very real need in
the life of the University," said
Dr. MacKenzie in reply to an address of welcome from Legion
President Garnt Livingston. Livingston stated that the canteen had
'been established as a public service for the University, as well as
a focal point for Legion members
to gather at.
At present coffee, soft drinks, icecream, pie and cigarettes may be
obtained at the Canteen and it is
expected that additional foodstuffs
will be available soon. The Canteen
will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. Monday to Friday and from
8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday for
the convenience of the students.
First definite announcement of candidacy in the forthcoming AMS elections to be held February 5 was made yesterday by Grant Livingstone and Bob Harwood.
They will be candidates for the offices of president and
treasurer, respectively, of the Alma Mater Society.
In    a   statement   accompanying  '    F0R treasurer
Denying rumours that he would
run for president of the council,
Harwood, Junior Member of this
year's AMS, made this statement
to The Ubyssey.

on recent rumours that I would
follow the precedent established
by previous Junior Members and
be a candidate for Student President in the forthcoming AMS elections.
a statement accompanying
his candidacy Livingstone, president of the UBC branch of the
Canadian Legion, said, "Several
representative students on the
campus have expressed the wish
that I stand for the presidency of
the Alma Mater Society. I deeply
appreciate the honor of their confidence.
He went on to say that the coming year will be a great and critical one. It is, one in which a
large scale program of student initiative, leadership and effort will
play an outstanding part.
"It is my sincere hope that the
splendid work of last year's council can be continued and will be
carried to further achievements.
With the active support of all the
students this will be possible," he
"In my opinion, the administration of student affairs, when so
many students are older than in
normal years, can better be handled by Grant Livingstone who has
been drafted as a presidential candidate, I feel I can best serve
next year's Council as Treasurer,
bringing to that office continuity
fromy this year's Council."
McGoun Debaters Vie
For Western Supremacy
Tomorrow night representatives of the four western universities, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba, meet to determine the winner of the McGoun Cup,
symbolic of Western Canadian collegiate Debating Supremacy.
At home the UBC team of Rosemary Hodgins and Jim Sutherland
take on Bert Orr and Charles
Archibald of the University of
Saskatchewan in Brock Hall at
8 p.m. The resolution is "Resolved
that Allied troops be withdrawn
immediately from Greece and
Orr, second year Law student,
is president of the Debating Directorate and has been a member
of the Parliamentary Forum for
the past three years. In 1943 he was
on the winning team in the intercollegiate against Regina College.

UBC McGoun entry, describes him
as one of the finest student speakers • in western Canada.
Archibald is veteran of six years
service with the armed forces,
Prior to this he taught school for
10 years. He graduates this year
in Arts with Honors in Education.
When the UBC team of Michael
Creal and Gordon Reed travel to
Winnipeg one of their opponents
will be a holdover from last year's
victorious Manitoba group which
made a clean sweep of the contests. He is Max Haskell, fourth
year Artsman, noted campus inter-
faculty debater and scholarship
winner. Besides these activities he
also serves on the editorial board
of the Manitoban.
Tom Goulding, second member
of the Manitoba home team is an
interfaculty debater and a past
premier of the Tuxis Boys' Parliament. Now in third year Arts he
is in charge of the interfaculty
Judges for the debates are Mrs.
Sally Creighton, Arnold Webster
and John E. Gibbard.
Mrs. Creighton is a member of
the Senate of the University of
British Columbia and a lecturer in
the English Department. She is the

As the week ends, UBC students are being
offered the opportunity of participating in
two of those events which help to bring all
Canadian university students closer together.
Those two events are the McGoun Cup debates and the Inter-Varsity Drama Festival.
These two competitions, which are staged
by the universities of the four western provinces, are typical of the methods by which
the National Federation of Canadian University Students would hope to unify college
students on a national scale.
They are clear indications that in non-
athletic inter-collegiate competition and cooperation, the western universities usually
manage to provide an example for all Canadian colleges to follow. The McGoun Cup
organizers have taken the initiative this
year in arranging for the winning team to
meet a championship team from the east
later on in the spring.
Initiative was shown last year by the
various western players' clubs when they
held the first drama festival at Edmonton.
This year, as UBC plays host for the first
time, the festival is already being classed
as a western tradition-to-be.
Students at UBC the next few nights will
be privileged to see both the players and
the debaters in action. Although these events
• are of a type which very few people can
participate in actively, they have a further
value in the interest in each other's universities which they stir up.
If ever Canadian universities are to take
the lead in building Canadian unity by
unifying the student populaton, they will
first have to build up interest between the
various campuses by means of the more
interesting and spectacular events. The
McGoun Cup debates and the Inter-Varsity
Drama Festival fall in that class.
In addition to providing impetus for these
higher ideals, the plays and debates should
also provide a satisfactory helping of entertainment. Students on this campus would
do well to take in one or both of the events.

January has become a month of little lists;
our pockets fill with scribbled notes of
Things to Do, Places to Go, Assignments to
Complete. The busy student, sandwiched
between studies and social life, is all too apt
to forget the lives and adventures of his
friends, the little people of the comic strips,
relegating them to a mere cursory glance
between engagements. The danger is real,
and a pause to renew acquaintances should
certainly prove of value.
The first day of 1947 might well be considered Black Wednesday in the history of
comic strip literature, for on that day the
authorship of Terry and the Pirates changed
Milton Caniff, the genius-creator of Terry,
Pat, Hot-Shot Charles, the Dragon Lady,
Raven Sherman, Burma, and Big Jane, turned his duties over to one George Wunder.
It's an established fact that the imitation
cannot attain the excellence of the original.
And while Wunder's people look much the
same as Caniff's a more subtle inferiority
is all too obvious. Terry and Hot-Shot were
a part of Caniff and can't exist without him.
Perhaps in time we shall get used to the
new author; but we rather suspect that the
faithful will seek their literary sustenance
in Caniff's new star, Steve Canyon.
Gasoline Alley continues to avoid the unreal happening and the soggy plot in favor
of a true history of the Wallets, Skeezix,
Nina, and Chipper. The firm of Wallet and
Bobble has recently shown itself financially
sound; Skeezix has his house; even Bobble
is proving an adequate partner. From this
healthy state of events, of course, we all derive adequate pleasure.
The optimistic trend continues in other
strips almost as though it were a capitalistic
plot to keep the peasants happy. In Little
Orphan Annie, Tik Tok, the wandering
cartoonist, has shown his almost cocky confidence to be some value. He is about to
sign a fat contract with Syndicate-tycoon
T. N. Tinwhistle, who likes to find a man
who will stand up to him. The plot is old,
but Tik Tok, unlike the rest of Harold Gray's
stars, is quite believable.
Rip Kirby shares in the general success
of the times, having just placed the murderer of Bandleader Swanee Rivers behind
bars. By Tuesday night, his accomplice, a
devilish little trick called Silky Shaw, had
not yet been caught.
Kirby, incidentally, is one of the newer
strips; it is revolutionary in that Rip is an
intelligent and handsome dective, who has
in addition to a blonde Girl Friday, a host
of finer feelings.  He plays the piano.
Sun strips are, as usual, led by the incomparable Al Capp and his Dog-Patchers. The
strip is full of irony, satire, and a dozen
other literary techniques. It draws some
enhancement, too, through use of real-life
characters. The Wolf Gal, for instance,
seems a fair take-off on The Outlaw. She
is a beautiful, lush creature, with an untamed, vicious heart. Sometimes we feel as
though we could almost forget about her
heart, in view of her other recommendations.
In case you haven't seen the papers latterly, we should like to bring you up to
date: Kerry Drake is just about to expose
the merciless Dr. Prey, murderer of Mme.
Libretto and Mrs. Brudge; Alley Oop has
just returned from 1874, through the medium of Dr. Wonmug's time machine, for a
short rest; and Joe Palooka is experiencing
trying times in his search for Anne Howe,
the sweet kid who disappeared after an
airplane crash even as she was journeying
home to marry Joe. We feel sure they will
soon be reunited.
It would not be amiss to urge all of you
to read some strips fast becoming national
favorites. Barnaby in the News-Herald is
tops in satire of the human scene. You'll
enjoy the constant angling of J. J. O'Malley,
the sad mumblings of Gus the Ghost, and
the pointed conversation of McSnoyd the
Invisible Leprechaun.
There is now no need to urge you to
avoid a certain strip, which happily has recently disappeared from the local scene. A
hint: "Is it a bird? Is it a Man? No! It's—."
Perhaps we had better leave it at that.

field these days;
it takes so much work that many
people make use of every opportunity they can find for the purposes of relaxation. Some people
go dancing, some go up the mountain, some play cards, some catch
up on their reading.
The people that go dancing defeat the end for which they are
working—relaxation. They spend
(hours bathing, dressing and pacing
the floor waiting for time to leave.
When they arrive at the dance they

catch up on their
reading suffer greatly too. They
cannot possibly relax—either what
they are reading is very light and
they skim through it, a process
that requires concentration in order to pick and choose the spots
that are to be read, or else it is a
heavy bit of literature that requires far more concentration than
the party in question desires to
bestow upon it and the process is
repeated. Why "catch up" on your
reading anyway?
Another type of person will say
that the only type of relaxation
that is of any benefit is his—he
sits and thinks. It is rather difficult to imagine anyone thinking
without using their brains. Non-
use of brain power is the essence
of relaxation.    Q.E.D. those who

practice to sit in the comer of a

that the Alpiners do not usually

club with a view
A club with a view. That's the
newly-opened Faculty Club at the
north end of The Mall, An unbroken vista of the magnificant
Gulf scenery presents itself to the
observer in a Howe Sound panorama. This superb view is faced
in plate glass all along the north
side of the building, from the well-
appointed Lounge, though the
bright and cheerful Main Dining
Room, and into the unique private
Banquet Room.
Mr. W. Park Chalmers, who has
served with the Royal House,
showed me around the new building which President N. A. M. MacKenzie opened a week ago last
Sunday. Mr. Chalmers is the House
Steward. His friendly manner recommends him to the position admirably, and he recommends enthusiastically the beauties of the
Gulf scenery.
The membership in the club is
not strictly limited to Faculty, since
anyone on the teaching staff is
eligible, except for student teachers.
The ten-dollar membership fee
covers the expenses of the club.
Since the people dining there
must pay for their food, it is natural that a cash-register should be
Behind this imposing monetary
meter is the charming Club Hostess, Mrs. E. B. Higgin. She maintains the friendly and sociable
atmosphere in the Club building.
Under her capable guidance, the
dining-room patrons have a superior service and thoughtfulness
bestowed on them, which may be
found nowhere else.
The building is made of three
converted alblution huts from To-
flno, Vancouver Island. It provides,
for the first time, a single meeting
place for the now expanded staff
of the university. Some of the
faculty members of the older
Faculty Association have been
working towards this idea of a
Faculty Club and building for
some time. The present organization is under a committee headed
by Dr. L. E. Ranta.
Professor O. J. Todd, who came
in to enjoy the view, and three
other gentlemen, Dr. W. A. Clemens, !>r. W. S. Hoar, and Mr. N. K.
Chowdhury, a Masters student
from Dacca University, India, all
commented on the excellence of
the food.
Monsieur F. Desreux, who comes
from just outside of Paris, France,
is the chef responsible for this
commendation of the culinary excellence at the Club.
In the private Banquet Room,
there is a large oval table, a product of the university's own carpenter shop.
As well as relieving congestion
at student facilities, the Faculty
Club provides one meeting place
where all the staff can get together
for a few moments at any time. We
should soon hear of some revivals
of friendly academic and practical
letters to the editor
Dear Sir:
I feel that the extra $2.00 fee
being levied on those who did not
pay their fees in full at the start
of the Winter Session is highly
unfair and will bring much hard
feeling against the Gym Fund.
The motion, in connection with
this increase in fees, was passed
at the semi-annual meeting with
the understanding that the fee
could not be collected before the
beginning of the Winter Session
1947, as the calendar stated that
the AMS fee was only $13. Furthermore, I have been unable to find
any printed statement from the
Registrar authorizing the increased fee to be payed, so I am led
to believe that this donation to
the Gym Fund is being disguised
as a compulsory gift, which one
can refuse to pay if one so washes.
Tliis situation, I am sure, will
tend to antagonize many people
who already feel that this method
of collecting money for the Gym
Fund has been carried out far
too freely. As an example of this
I cite the case of the reduced admission to Henry V, where the
full admission price was charged
with the Gym Fund taking the
benefit of the reduced rate. Many
students refused to buy their
tickets through the University in
protest. In closing, I should like
to say that this method of getting
money for the Gym Fund will do
more harm than good.

Faculty Victors
In Chess Match
The challenge chess match held
in the Brock lounge last Monday
evening resulted in a 6-2 victory
for the faculty over the University
Chess Club.
Representatives of the faculty included Dr. McKay, Dr. Seyers,
A. E. Taylor and G. E. Latta while
across the boards were Andy Maly-
sheff, Gordon Sanborn, Augusta
Thommasson and Eric Hyde of the
UCC. Two games were played on
each board.
Malysheff and Hyde obtained the
^ only two points for the UCC in
victories won from Dr. McKay and
G. Latta respectively.
Dr. Seyers triumphed twice over
Sanborn, and Taylor scored twice
against Miss Thommasson.
Malysheff claims that the poor
showing of the club was due to
the fact that his team was distracted by the presence of Pan-
Hellenic Society women who were
strolling through the lounge during
the .latter portion of play.
A return match is being planned
by the chess club.
Mamooks Revise
Poster Rulings
The Mamboks have suggested,
that in view of an undue amount
of confusion and criticizism by
supporters of various candidates
for Queen of the Mardi Gras, this
plan be set up that may be followed from year to year.
1. Only four advertising posters
will be put on any notice board
with exception of the Caf notice
board. The largest size to be 21 x
28, to conform with AMS regulations. Slogans as a seperate poster
will not be allowed.
2. Mamooks will do one poster
for each candidate, to be used on
the Caf notice board. Size is not
to exceed 14 x 21. No other advertising except this poster will
be permitted on this board.
3. No posters will be placed on
places other than regular notice
boards, in confirmation with University rules,
4. Photographs of each candidate
not in excess of 9 x 12 may be used.
Each Caf poster should include a
5. Posters are to be the only
means of publicity until January
a) Poster may be placed in prescribed places on and after January
b) Personal advertising by each
sorority in support of their candidate cannot be introduced until
January 20.
The Mamooks also suggested that
all parades, car advertising, and
the like be investigated and that
results made clear to all candidates,
who should receive a written copy
of the regulations. The club suggests further that all supporters of
candidates approach them 'or more
detailed information.

Viceroy Invests
Student Yets
Lieutenant-Governor the Honorable G. A. Banks will present
decorations to approximately 80
student-veterans at an investiture
to be held in the main lounge of
Brock Hall at 3 p.m. January 29.
Awards to be presented at the
investiture include one Distinguished Service Order, and the
decoration of two women veterans
on the campus.
This will be the first investiture
of military awards to take place
on the University of British Columbia campus, and according to
university officials it promises to
be one of the most impressive and
meaningful ceremonies ever to
occur on the University grounds.
It is expected that another investiture will be necessary to present
awards to those veterans whose
decorations and citations will not
arrive in time for the January 29
Dr. G. M. Shrum has requested
' that the recipients gather in the
Mildred Brock Room et 2 pan. on
the afternoon of the ceremony, in
civilian dress. He has also asked
that they supply the Extension
Department with the names and
address of friends and relatives
to whom they would like invitations sent.
Veterans who have won decorations but have not yet been contacted by the Extension Department should see Dr. G. M. Shrum
immediately in Hut. L. 10.

'Seemingly swallowed up in the whirl of athletics on the
campus is one of the finest major sports that we at UBC are
playing this year. Some 4i the boys will tell you that it is
a game in which y6u really have to use your head and that
is true no matter how you look at it. To be sure, soccer
ihasn't hit the headlines, but the way that the Varsity teams
have been playing of late, they are most certainly shaping
up into one of the best teams on the campus.
To start with the fundamentals, UBC can boast two
roundball squads this year, both of high calibre. The Varsity
team is the higher-level squad and the UBC eleven acts as
the proving grounds for Varsity material.
The coaching chores are in the hands of one Millar
McGill, a gent who has done a bit of footwork himself in
his day. He graduated from dear old UBC back in '33 and
has" played with North Shore Reds and St. Saviours in his
many years of experience.
They've Won The Odd Game, Too
The power that is tied up in the Varsity eleven is
evidenced in their record of games this year. So far, they
have played fifteen contests, and twelve of those have been
entered in the win column. Two of the losses were the first
two games of the year and the third was on Christmas Day,
but that is a story in itself.
The game that day was about the closest thing to an
upset that we can imagine, for the Varsity squad was playing
North Shore United eleven and although they didn't win,
they put up a terrific fight. For the uninitiated, the Reds,
as the North Shore players are known, are recognized as
Canadian soccer champions and their team is one of the
best in the Coast League today.
Although the teams across Canada have not played for
Dominion supremacy since the beginning of World War II,
the Reds travelled east to meet Winnipeg after taking the
local competition and defeated the Prairie squad quite
handily. Since Winnipeg is probably one of the main soccer
centres of the east, the victory was considered symbolic of
Canadian championship ball although of course, it is not
Tough Opposition To A Tough Team
The Christmas Day battle was a Mainland Cup-Tie.
Varsity had reached the semi-finals and now they had to
meet the Reds. After holding a 2-1 lead part way through
the second half, the Varsity crew were overwhelmed by
the power of the North Shore machine and went down
under a three goal barrage to come out on the short end of
a 4-2 score.
Varsity talent is not altogether new to Coast League
fans however. Goalie Grant Moreton, Dave Thompson and
Stu Todd have all played with Kerrisdale. St, Saviours are
represented by Stan Nicols and Pat Campbell. And then
there's Jimmy Gold, the young sensation from Nanaimo.
The future holds great things for the Varsity crew too.
Senior Manager, Bud Harford is arranging contests with
Victoria and Nanaimo, both Coast League teams, and he
also hopes to get a game with Seattle. The teams down
south play in a sort of semi-pro set-up and should offer
good competition for the Blue and Gold eleven.
Lots Of Silver In The Future
And then again, there are three Cups still in the offing.
The first one is the Imperial Cup, symbolic of leadership in
the Vancouver and District League. The series for this trophy
will get under way some time next month, and as the Varsity
squad has been in the finals for this cup in every one of
the last three years, they hope to be in there again this year.
There is also the Provincial Cup race to be played off
just after exams and the Dominion title which goes on the
block in August or September. This means that the team
will have to keep in shape all summer but as all the boys
are Vancouver lads with the exception of Jimmy Gold, this
should not be too hard.
Skiers To Try
Two 'UBC students, Garvin Robinson and Gordon Cowan, have
been named as "possible" selections tor the 1948 Canadian Olympic
Ski Team by Fred Hudson, Western Ski-selection committee.
■This,news didn't come as a surprise to Vancouver Athieuc- officials as these boys are really up
and coming in skiing circles.
Cowan, a 3rd year Commerce
student, and Robinson, 1st year
Arts, are the nucleas of the present Varsity ski team which ia
slated for an inter-collegiate ski
meet with Alberta and Manitoba
at Banff next week.
Mr. Hudson in an interview
Wednesday morning, wanted to
stress that this does not mean that
these lads are definite contenders
in the 1948 Olympic games.
"Rather," replied Mr. Hudson,
"race results from this year and
last plus the Dominion Championships back East in March will be
the deciding factor."
However, it's not going to be a
bed of roses for Cowan and Robinson. Several other B. C. skiers
have been nominated by the selection board and they are: Earl
Pletch, Revelstoke; Bill and Bert
Irwin, Princeton; Tom Mobraten,
Jack Roocroft, Torre Orre, Holly-
burn; Walt McMillan, Seymour;
Les Ramsay, Llloyd Harper, Tyee;
Bill Robinson, brother of Garvin,
Vancouver; and Bill Copely, Banff.
Other members of the Varsity
Ski Team like John Frazee, Don
Anderson, Gordy Martin, Doug
Fraser and many others are not
completely excluded from the list.
Performances of each skier will
be recorded and if the man is
good enough, he will be invited
to the "Dominion's," from which
the final selection will be made.

Warriors will tackle the league-
leading Meraloma squad in the
preliminary to the Vancouver
Hornet-Seattle Blue Devil game.
The Chiefs will be out to erase
Hunk Henderson's quintet from

to improve their own status in the
league standings. Henderson's starry gang includes such former
Varsity toilers as Sandy Robertson,
Ole Bakken, Jack Pomfret, and
Ivor Wynn.
Try-outs for the Swimming gala
with the Y. M. C. A. on Saturday
night, will be held at 7:00 Thursday
night at the Y Pool, All men intending to swim in this gala must
be there and, must be on time.
Bremerton Next RiVo/s For 'Birds
With the feathers of six Pacific Northwest Conference basketball wins in their fedoras,
UBC's Thunderbird hoop quintet goes melon-happy again Saturday night as hosts to the
Bremerton Rockets of the Northwest amateur loop.    A torrid session is predicted for the
Varsity gym affair, since the Rockets are touted to be stronger than ever this year, holding
down place position in their league.
Last  year the  Rockets showed       _____«________^_^_^___^_
plenty of the old college try be-
for dropping a close 46-40 decision
to the 1945-46 inter-collegiate
champs. This year, featuring a
fast-breaking style of attack as
opposed to their former slow, play-
making manoeuvres, Manager Bill
Kropp's boys have rocketed to victory over several teams of high
Seattle Sandpoint's Navalairs,
who succumbed to a 46-39 trouncing, and Seattle's Matheny-Bacon
squad are numbered among the
Rocket victims. Only team in their
loop managing to wind up on the
heavy end of the count is the Seattle Alpine outfit, league leaders
among the Pacific Northwest amateurs.
And when they encountered the
Alpinites, the Bremerton boys
went down to defeat only after a
grim 40-34 struggle.
Bremerton boasts such capable
hempsters as Larry Grams, Stew
Mclntyre and Frank Ross, who
have chalked up many a point on
the Rocket side of the scoresheet
since the opening of the season.
Prelim to the Bremerton-Thun-
derbird contest will be a Senior
£ tussle involving a Varsity squad
of that league and the Hodgson-
Clark maplemen. And in the Senior B books, Hodgson-Clark rates
second to none.
Meeting the Bremerton boys will
not be a new experience for the
Thunderers, since the Blue and
Gold outfit has played previous
exhibition games at the Puget
Sound Naval base on several occasions. However, the Bremerton
win that a good many of the armchair boys predict could give the
local campus men something new
to think about.

Varsity Rug$ermen Ready
For Victoria, California
Enthusiasim is running over in
campus rugby circles these days
as the spring season is forecast as
the greatest ever in Varsity history. Although temporarily stymied by the weatherman the Varsity fifteen, already Miller Cup
champions, are teed up for a long
A whirlwind season that will
include invasions of Brockton
Oval, MacDonald Park in Victoria,
the U of California in Berkley and
possibly Stanford in Palo Alto,
plus a full schedule of Stadium
battles to please campus fandome,
is being planned.
Only possible source of powerful interference is the other campus squad, UBC, which has been
hot on the tracks of its brother
team all year. Now playing with
a strengthened three line the Orange shirts have a good chance to
put the skids under the Miller
Cup winners.
Plans have been laid to bring
the club champions of Victoria to
the Stadium February 1. The winning team this year was under
the colors of the James Bay Athletic Association, a club famous
for its powerful teams. When the
Bays meet Varsity in the Stadium
they will be playing for the Roun-
sfel Cup, symbolic of club championship in B.C.
The  second  week   of  February
will usher in a real treat for campus fans as the much heralded
McKechnie Cup games get under
way. On successive weeks the
Stadium will greet the Vancouver
(Lions and the Victoria Crimson
Currently being planned are two
large scale invasions of enemy
territory to take place in March.
Operation Victoria, which will see
a triad of local teams sail to the
Island for a weekend of sport, may
include over 500 fans—if a boat
can be obtained for the affair.
March 12 will see the rugby squad
on the way to the San Francisco
area where games with the University of California and possibly
Stanford are on schedule.
'As a grand finale to the season
a counter attack from California
will be launched on March 26,
when the students from Berkley
will appear in the Stadium for a
return match. Student fans are
warned to keep that date open as
the fireworks should really be
... Pro Football Ahead ?
Another of Varsity's prominent
athletes has received the nod from
professional sport. From the office
of the Graduate Manager of Athletics comes word that big, brawny
210-lb football star, Herb Caposri
is in possession of a contract signed in triplicate from the New York
The terms of the contract apply
to the 1947-48 season and quote a
sum In the neighborhood of 14000
a« the salary, if Capozzi makes the
grade, and a minimum guarantee
of $50 a week during the preseason practice sessions.
The former co-captain of the
Varsity Thunderbirds, who made
the All-Conference team in the
Pacific Northwest setup this year,
is undecided about accepting the
offer at the present. .
