FIVE OUT OF SEVEN
OK BALL IN ARMORY
Five of seven students canvassed in a recent Daily Ubyssey
poll think that, fundamentally, it is a "good idea" to hold the
Fall Ball in the Armory.
Three were dubious of Council being able to enforce the
liquor regulations, and only one was of the opinion that this
year's function would be entirely successful.
Don     Lanskail,
first year Law and
executive   member
of   Branch   7£   of
the Canadian Legion, said, when interviewed:    "It    is
fundamentally      a
good  idea  to hold
such events on the    Don Lanskail
campus.   But I am extremely dubious
as   to   whether   the   stringent   liquor
regulations   will   be  successfully   enforced.   In my opinion the regulations
should be relaxed to some extent  to
conform with  reality."
Bitty    .Purvis'
thud     year     Arts,
aid      " I    believe
'.. t   the   idea   has
nei it.  However,   it |
-, my opinion  that •
i.ijor functions'
uch   as   the   Fall j
lall should be held
off    the    campus."
Betty furvis
"I   think   that  if  the  student   body
will    co-operate    with    their    committee   this   year's  Fall   Ball   should
be one of the more
outstanding    social
events in the university's history
and I am sure that
the committee will
show    reasonabli
leniency     towards
student     activity,'
said   Joan   Baync,      «-o.i  i*<iyne
fourth  year  Arts student.
Jack Margach, third year Law student,   dealt   entirely   with   the   liquor
question.   "In   my   opinion,"   he   said,
hi  i        n tu   n i   one of two choice.!
1   l i   'liquor   regulations.
"Kither they -n--
'a;v" them to the
lei'or with tlie offer I i 1 discouragine;
any future major
parties on the ca.il-
;;us ( r that they

/£fWF jifflftfae''"'"*• "^ v'cw   -mc'
J.1..11.   .vlaigach    penalize    only    the
extreme  offenders."
Joan Mitchell, third year Arts student, was "dubious' about the success
of the Fall  Ball this year.
"I think f1 it
holding such a
function in the
Armory releg U^s
it to the posit em
of just anotht)
dance," she s i
when    interview e 1 \
Ruby Dunlop, I
so a third >tii
Arts student, expressed cli-feteru
sentiments, although she thinks "the
idea is not, being received very well
by the majority of the students."

Clashes
With Buck
Author Says Reds
Ran Treason School
Toronto, Nov. 5—(CUP) —
John Hladun, who claims he
once attended a Communist
! "treason school" in Moscow,
locked horns here with Tim
Buck, national Labor-Progressive leader, during an address
Buck made to students at tlie
University of Toronto.
Hladun had said in a series of
articles written for McLean's magazine that he attended the "treason
school" with Harvey Murphy, executive member of the Mine,' Mill and
Smelter Workers Union in British
Columbia, and other alleged Canadian Communists.
The dramatic exchange between
Hladun and the LPP leader came
when Buck asserted that Sam Carr,
former secretary of the party, had
not attended the Moscow school as
reported   in   Hladun's   articles.
AUTHOR INTERRUPTS
"Stop right there," a voice shouted
from   the   back   of  the  hall,   "I   am
John Hladun."
Hladun declared that he had been
a member of the Communist party
in Canada from 1927 to 1!W and that
he had <[>( nt nine months in Russia
l pa in i ne; revolutionary technique:-;,
the use of explosives and weapon-
and   methods   fur   instigating   strikes?
Thick told the student audience
that Carr and a Toronto alderman
had visited Russia to study 'Communist production methods," but that
they had attended no "treason school"
a.s described in the magazine articles.
"There was not one iota of treason
—no more than there is at the school
at Lake Couchiching in the summer,"
Buck said.

Perrault Script
Accepted By CBC
Ernie Perrault has done it again.
Barely a month after the Players'
Club had distinguished him by accepting his 'Let Sleeping Gods Lie"
for one of its Fall Play productions,
he has had a script accepted by the
CBC.
Several of his radio plays have
been produced on this network. The
present show is entitled, "The Celestial Clinic" and is a fantasy on
Armistice.
Its plot depicts two soldiers who are
hit by a shell, One lives and the other
dies. The treatment they undergo in
Celestial Clinic gives a novel presen-
taion of the Armistice theme.
The play will bc broadcast from
Winnipeg Theatre on Armistice Day.

STUDENTS 'ALARMED' BY
EXAM-HAPPY SLEEPYHEAD
Dozing in the Library on quiet afternoons holds no fear
for at least one UBC co-ed.
Her unique stay-awake plan was brought to light yesterday afternoon when the tomb-like silence of the main
reading room was shattered by the jangling of an alarm
clock.
A hasty plunge under the table brought up the obstreperous awakener and it was hurriedly silenced.
Meanwhile the two hundred students in the Library at
the time are wondering why an alarm clock should be set
to ring at 4:30. ,
The Joint Pep Board said that the
Gym was chosen for the meet because its large sealing capacity will
permit maximum attendance, and that
the limitation on atendanco will assure all those attending Saturday's
football game of seats.
No outside entertainment will be
provided, Frank Nightingale's orchestra, the members of the football
team, and the Jokers Club—with their
frog-jumping contest—are scheduled
to entertain.
Lome Glendenning, chairman of the
Joint Pep Board, will emcee.
The board consists of representatives from Mamooks, Radsoc, Jokers,
Phrateres, the Pub, and Student
Council.
The board reported that a pep
meet in conjunction with the Fall
Ball Will be held ■same""time "next
week.

Saskatoon, Nov. 4— (CUP) —
As hundreds of pyjama-clad
students and citizens watched,
fire swept through the attic of
the College Building at the
University of Saskatchewan on
Monday, October 27 and for a
time threatened to destroy the
structure completely.
Only quick work on the part of the
Saskatoon fire department and student volunteers averted complete destruction of the building which houses
the offices and library of the U. of S.
The blaze was discovered at 12£2
a.m., by the building janitor, John
Rogers, who immediately turned in
the alarm, Firemen remained on the
scene until 6:40 a.m. when the flamei
were finally extinguished.
COMBUSTION
The fire, which almost completely
destroyed the attic of College Building, was caused by the spontaneous
combustion of surplus War Assets
blankets stored there last spring.
Although the extent of the damage
I is not known completely as yet, it is
thought   to   ba   comparatively   light
because   of   the   quick   work   of   the
fire-fighters.
I1. C. Appelt, university librarian.
announced that the library, located -an
the second floi i will not likely be in
operation again for aboui two weeks,
lie added, that students will probably
be able to get books from the reserve
shelf very soon a.s little water had
found its way to that section of the
library.
STUDENT ASSISTANCE
A groat deal of credit was given U
students of Qu'Appelle Hall, the men's
residence, who aided the work of the
firemen. Around three o'clock a number of them, clad only in pyjamas,
sloshed about in the water which
covered the library floor, carrying
books from the shelves to another
building.
The only casualty was a fireman,
who suffered bruises when the ladder
en which he was climbing toppled
over from the side of the building.
As a result of the blaze, the fire
department announced that other
buildings on the campus would be
inspected shortly in an effort So
eliminate any other fire hazards that
might  exist.

GIBILITY RULES
not
The old problem of "when \>- x i-voi >r
a senior" is once mope comiiu* lo the [o'e.
Wo   refer,   of   course,   to   the   eli'.;ibil;|y
regulations governing candidature for olios-.,
on Student Council.
After the confusion which resulted last
year when several candidates in first year law
objected to being ruled freshmen, a committee under the Undergraduate Societies Committee worked long in drafting amendments
to the code of the AMS to clear up these
difficulties.
The amendments were finally passed by
Council near the close of the year—too late
to cover last year's elections—and the harras-
sed lobbiests went away happy.
It appears, however, that all is not yet
fight with the eligibility requirements.
Under the terms of the amended Code,
Article 1, a freshman is a student registered
in First Year Arts and Science, or its equivalent. By equivalent, the constitutional revision committee probably meant first year
agriculture, pharmacy, but not first year applied science or law. In any event it should
at least be made clear.
A Sophomore is a student who has completed his first year and once again the same
ambiguity exists.
The delmilkm of a Senior—-any slttden'
who has completed three full years--repre-
: eitt ■ a ;.'.rea! improvement over the old definition, involving graduating years, since applied
science students graduate in five years and
law in five or six or more.
The most unfortunate oversight, however, is in the definition of a Junior. The
difficulty is that all members of law with the
exception of those holding Arts degrees can
go on being Juniors for their entire three
years.
As it stands, the article states that a
Junior shall be any student who has completed
his first year and one other in any faculty
and who is not in his graduating year nor
already holding a degree.
The regulation has a floor but no ceiling.
The danger of this looseness lies in the
fact that older students can run for offices
presumably reserved for third year students
.... Junior Member being a case in point.
Council may well tend toward a preponderance of older members, to the exclusion
of younger people. Such a lopsided balance
is not altogether just, and we sincerely trust
that present corrective efforts believed to be
underway in USC will come to fruition before
next year's AMS elections roll around after
Christmas.
The Children's Hour
By LES BEWLEY
How bright and beautiful you look tonight, kiddies.
Standing there, with your hair brushed
and congealed jam of daily living washed
from your faces, you make us think of the
ghostly forms of all the other kiddies who
came downstairs in their flannelette nightgowns, long ago, and had their little hour.
Well, before we adjust the auto-thermostat dial heat control on your spun-glass
sleepers, put you in your soybean crib, and
plug the lot into the moduflow electrical
outlet; suppose we sit down for a while, and
yarn about Old Times.
Long, long ago—about the year 1947—
before the state scientists found a way to have
babies born into the world with a cathode
tube already installed inside them (substituting efficient motivation by radio signal
from national headquarters for inefficient old
free will) a great Man died.
They called him Big Red. Big, becau.-e.
he wae; fall and strong; Red, because of the
red. I hat gleamed in his hair. lie was al-o
known with affection to millions of peoples
all over the world. No, kiddies, he had n"
EUC number. You must try to rememb'-r
that, this was long ago, in 1947, before they
had Economic Unit Control numbers for
people.
Anyway, kiddie.s, this big Red died of a
heart attack. Perhaps we had better explain
that. A heart attack, to people of that time,
meant roughly what a blown cathode tube
would mean Lo you now. They used to call
it Death; but you know it as Terminated
Usefulness. Believe il or not, but those people
even used to waste paper writing poems
about, it.
HE WAS GREAT
This Big Red was so popular that when
he Terminated, he had his picture printed in
what they called the Press. When people saw
his fine, aquiline features staring out of the
Press, and realized that Big Red had Terminated, they somehow knew that something
fine had gone out of their lives.
We told you that Big Red was a great
Man. Just how great he was, we can measure
by holding the record of his life against the
standards of his time.
When people practised monogamy, and
anyone who had two wives was a Mormon, a
bigamist or a scoundrel, Big Red had 368
wives. By those 368 wives he had 236 recognized offspring. And all that in the space of
thirteen years.
Strangely enough, he was damned from
no platform, thundered at from no pulpit and
flogged from no printshop. In fact, they were
all rather happy to hear about it, and cheered
him on.
He had little else to console himself
with, did this Big Red. When it came to
getting his share of the good things of life, he
was awfully dumb.
NO TUB, NO NOTHING
He never owned a radio or a refrigerator,
in an age when even the dumbest citizen
knew that he was underprivileged if he
didn't have those things.
He never owned a tin tub, let alone a
porcelain bathtub; and when he needed a
bath, he usually got hosed down. And that
in an age when even the sorriest citizen realized that he was one of the submerged one-
I bird of the nation, if he hadn't a I
to submerge  himself in.
1\\ I'acl, he was probably
eti   Man   "!'   his   age.   But   e
was too dumb lo reali/.c.
had   over  gone   (o   (Ik.
emhroi
lie   mosl   OSI l|: l: i -
her   bee.uise   he
oi- because no <>:v
over gone io (he trouble of convincing
him of it, he never thought thai he was being
exploited; and he lived a hell of a happy,
full life, in the bargain. If he over heard of
neuroses, he probably thought they wvrc
something to eat.
He never in his life asked for, or received
a guarantee, a contract of employment, ;,a
hours of work agreement, or a bill of rights,
Possibly because lie never believed thai
he had anything' to whine, complain or gripe
about, he never in his whole life whined,
complained or griped. He just seemed happy
to be alive.
Boy, was that Big Red dumb!
He was so dumb that hundreds of thousands of people (smarter than he, by far)
used to feel impelled to stand around and
watch him, with love, respect and admiration
in their eyes. They voluntarily drove hundreds of miles, just to see a dumb guy who
knew only one thing, when the bell rang for
the start; and that was to do his level best.
Perhaps, in their hearts, the visitors knew
they wef| looking at one fellow who never
iti hiS life" started a job by asking: "what's in
this for me?"
Well, kiddies, that was the Man they
called Big Red. His real name was Man
O'War. If there is any lesson to be gained
from his life, it is probably this — that people
are too proud to learn from a horse. A horse
might cast his bread upon the waters, but
man would rather drain the pond.

Those who read Mr. Dean's letter
last year will not be surprised by
his attack on the International Relations Club for having a non-partisan approach to world problems. We
hope that this year's. 'Food for
thought' v. ill contain some vitamins
; nd calm ic value and not be all bulk!
Those who have followed the club's
progress will consider it a real tribute to Ihe objectivity attained to
find that the only stone that a communist can throw at it is that it
h !s not allowed itself to be used as
a mouthpiece for their propaganda.
It was not even called a fascist
organization!
Most of us know bow difficult it
i<. in a world deluged with propa-
.- oid,', to '.-ifI out enough fragmenls
of truth to build up a reasonably
accurate concept. I cannot help feeling that the philosopher kings in our
midst who came with all the answers
are wasting their time al university.
Most of us however are not satisfied
with the conjuror's simple 'Throw a
red blanket on it and it doesn't
exist' solution. It appears that those
enlightened souls whose eyes are
dimmed by the brilliance of their
soviet halos are not content with
preaching the gospel to those who
attend the Communist Club, an excellent institution which provides the
bias which Mr. Dean feels is lacking
elsewhere. They wish further to
force us to put on their red spectacles
when we study world problems.
WHITE QUEEN
The IRC has always had the speakers it wanted, so for that matter has
the LPP club and the SPC; so Mr.
Dean, why the White Queen attitude?
You will be quite safe under our
system until your group attempts
to use the strong arm methods which
your compatriots in Europe are employing. The IRC picked its speakers
because they were considered authorities on their subjects and Dean
seems unable to pin any political
labels on them, or he would have
done so. Would he prefer us to call
on local cell leaders to talk to us
on Palestine instead of the Arab
and Jewish representatives whom we
had? Does he feel that the treatment
of Holland, Germany or Asia by
Nigel Morgan, Maurice Rush or any
of the campus prototypes would be
authoritative and educational? Who
but the very chosen few would credit
Tim Buck with a masterful understanding of the problems of Britain,
France, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia and their solution as the result
of a visit of several weeks?
SIXTH SPEAKER
For the information of those who
were not on the campus last year
I would like to point out that Mr.
Buck was the sixth communist speak-,
er who had visited us at a time when\
no speakers from any other party
were permitted. A rather far cry
from persecution isn't it? In spite
of that, Mr. Dean wanted the other
clubs to present communist speakers
toe. Yes. it's quite casv to see that
i biectivily is not one of his cherished
deal- Tho SPC is (o ba comalcndeel
Ibis year since in spite of its riiin-
11e111'.i■-.! president if- members seem
determined   to   discuss   social   probles.
To   cite   one   example,   the   question
of   atomic   energy   was   discussed   by
Ihe   club.   The   American   and   Soviet
proposals   and    Ihe   Australian    compromise  were all   presented.  The  Soviet   proposal   was  examined,   not   the
wilrl    accusations    which    the    Soviet
delegate   lakes  advantage   of   the   Security   Council   to   broadcast   to   the
world,   but   the   concrete   alternatives
lo   the   Baruch   plan.   Those   of   us   in j
the   club   wish   to   get   at    the   basic,
facts, not  to be subjected  to  the irresponsible    gushings   which   Dean    re- '
commends. I
NAME   CALLING j
It is all too easy to call every
opponent a fascist and attribute all i
world troubles to capitalism. Sometimes one wonders how it is possible
for people to be blinded by the patent cure-all. In the USSR where only
one view is presented or allowed and
all are endoctrinated from childhood with the faith, it is understandable, but in our country where the
choice exists—Mr. Gray last year
advised me to spend some time in
the library getting some of the facts
on the USSR. For his benefit—that
of those whose only source of information is party pamphlets, I
would like to say that eight months
in the Soviet Union has given me
perhaps a more balanced insight ino
conditions there than most of its
supporters on the campus of whose
ignorance any intelligent Russian
communist would be ashamed. If a
student gains nothing more from university,  he  should  at  least develop
an ability for critical examination.
As Dean  says,  not  what  an  organ-
I ization  is called   but   what   it  does

CONFUSION
Be careful not to confuse a progressive with a communist but when
you arc sure of the identity of one
of their party agents se to it that
he does not get into a position wheie
he can use he club for the party's own
ends. It is alarming to see that in
Bulgaria, Hungary and Poland the
opposition leaders who were executed or escaped were not even labelled
fascists, as has been the custom. This
could be an indication that Russia
feels that public opinion abroad has
been so influenced by its propaganda that their most glaring acts
will not be condoned without even an
anti-fascist appeal. If they seized
power in this country do not forget
that our Liberal, Conservative and
CCF leaders would be the Canadian
Pefkovs, guilty of conspiracy against
the party in power.
Those socialists who still cannot
see where their party stands in this
regard should learn, before it is too
late, from the treatment meted out
to their members in France and Italy,
what their position will be if this
violent minority  seizes power.
At UBC there are some 30 member3
of the LPP party cut of 9000, a ratio
of 1:300. If they wish to sit and hear
everything discussed from their own
one-sided slant there is a club for
that purpose.
If, however, they persist In entering other organizations with the intent of using or wrecking them, even
students who have been trying to
stay on the fence and be broadmlnded
are going to lose their patience and
do something about it.

Socialist Suite
Dear Sir:
Mr. Coldwell's speech on the campus Saturday was so plausibly pre-'
sented that it deserves comment.
I noted that almost all his examples
quoted as "e-se'itial sei vices", suitable
for nationalization, have already been
government-owned in some "I our
provinces, without impairing the essentia! fiee enterprise nature ef tht ir
economy. Most public utilities which
are not government owned are controlled by C'A'i rnnienl - a'".'ointed
cnmmis.-i'ins to auaed the public interest. Moreover. < lie ha.- only to read
the Bank Act fo realize that our ban,;s
are  largely  controlled  already.
Had 1 any confidence that such
mod'-ration bounded Mr. Coldwell's
ambitions, for our economy, he might
win n disciple. But he was pla>ing a
double tunc. With one hand he beguiled me with sweet notes of moderation and with the other, he beat
the big drum for the faithful.
He said that we must subsitute
"healthy" competition for public good
for unhealthy competition for private
gain. There he shows his true colors.
That is the basic principles of socialism, which must inevitably lead
him, and us, if we are foolish enough
to follow, across the shadowy Rubicon
between "services" and "production"
to the heart of all our creative endeavour. As for this principle, if he
really believes that an "Order of
Lenin" or a "Coldwell's Gold Star"
has ever been, or will ever be, till the
millenium comes, a greater incentive
to creative effort trjan personal gain,
then I can only suggest that he carry
it back to the schoolroom from
whence he brought it.
Certainly, if he was dismissed from
his teaching job because of his political opinions, as he complains, then
that government did us a poor service
to e:-pose the country to the knuckle-
rapping philosophy of the kindergarten.
David Tupper,
President Progressive-
Conservative Club.
Long Weekend?
Dear Sir:
I understand that Tuesday, November 11 is to be a University holiday.
Why not arrange it with the powers
that be to have Monday off also? This
would give students and faculty alike
a three day weekend, and an opportunity to visit home if they live out
of town.
Yours for fast action,

FROG 'JUMPS' TOO SOON,
JOKERS LACK RACE ENTRY
With the frog-jumping contest in the Armory rapidly
approaching, disaster has struck the Jokers—someone has
stolen their frog.
Dick Ellis reported that a suspicious character lurking
around their training grounds had made off with the
champion racer "Skyrocket".
This grave loss however does not dampen the spirits
of the zany club. They have a substitute, which they are
confident will brush aside all opposition.

In    another    contest,     the    Ti

Most notable feat, according to
Woodward, was that of Chuck Wilson
who won the Webster Trophy, annually awarded to Canada's safest
amateur pilot. Two more awards for
power flying, one of them the B.C.
Aero Club trophy for aerobatics, were
carried off by Ken Kirk.
FOUR GLIDERS
The UBC club has four gliders according to club president Carson
Smith. Only one of these, a North-
rup Primary, is now in use, but it is
hoped by the club that the two other
machines, a Grunau Baby and a
Boeing will be in operation by summer.
The fourth plane, a Sweitzer two-
seater and the Grunau should have
every   chance   of   setting   some   new
Tlie Gliding Club now has about
forty members. Most of them are beginners and are '-totting instruction
weekends from club instructor Henry
Zitko. The club's 'home base" is at
Boundary   Bay   airport.
Smith said that there is a possibility of extra flying during the Christmas holiday.', if rii'-imh in' inbers are
interested. Those living near Vancouver will also be able to fly next
summer.
WAV RECRUITS
The Gliders and Searcrs are looking for new recruits said Smith. The
club can offer experience in every
phase of glider construction, as well
as instruction in gliding. Those interested are advised to watch the
Ubyssey for announcements of meetings.

LAURIE DYER, Acting Sports Editor
EDITOR THIS ISSUE—Gil Gray
chalk talk . . .
... by Chick Turner
UNOFFICIAL, BUT STRICTLY
Amid a din of well-intoned groans from the reprobates on
the Sports Desk, your humble scribe made his unheralded reappearance from oblivion yesterday after his rather forced
layoff. And so, to the kind readers who expressed the hope that
fate had forever banished this menace to journalism from the
sheet, we express our thanks—and consolation.
This scribe was in a tough sjjot: he was a bum out of a job,
and was "strictly unofficial." What finally clinched the issue,
however, was our big punch line—that since Moyls had graduated to better pay, and Dyer had been promoted, Chick was
now the "Dean of Ubyssey Sports Writers," and with the
foul-tasting mouthful it was all over.
We're On A Winning Streak
Varsity's loyal grads received a handsome Homecoming
gift Saturday afternoon when the gridiron edition of the Thunderbirds finally clicked and chalked up their first win in
American Conference play. The victory had eluded Kabat
cavaliers in twelve trips to the post—it was a long time in
coming; but this corner reckons that with a minimum of breaks,
the winning may become a wee bit more of a habit next season,
despite the conversations a local city columnist persists in
repeating to his eager public.
The weekly shipment of orchids is tossed in liberal bunches
to Doug Reid who turned in another inspired performance, and
on one or two occasions reminded this corner of the subtle
dipsy-doodling of Squirmin' Herman Wedemeyer; to Bob
Murphy for a standout exhibition of plunging and running; to
freshman Freddie French for a great display of leather-snagging;
to "old faithful" Herb Capozzi and Phil Nixon for some capable
bruising play on the line; and to Greg Kabat, Wisconsin, '33,
who showed a few of the local drugstore quarterbacks that he
can still produce the goods if given half a chance.
That Boy Piercy Is Hot
Varsity's Track Club put on a sparkling half-time striding
exhibition for the 3000-odd fans at the game    It was a feature ;
two mile race,  and the athletic moguls  promised  this  corner ■
that it would be a good one. It was. '
The rivals a.s usual were Bob iPercy, sensational sophomore
who copped the Intramural Title last fall and led the Varsity ,
team to its fourth consecutive Pacific Coast Conference Champ- i
ionship, and volatile Pat Minchin, PNCC mile champion. Min-'
chin's race is over a four lap route, and it was conceded that he
couldn't hold Piercey over the longer distance.    After a brief
exchange of the lead in the fifth lap, the curly-topped ex-Byng
star swung out into a longer stride and put 60 yards between
himself and Minchin before crossing the tape in the  record
time of 9:53.
Annual Roadrace At Noon Today
All of which brings us down to the annual Intramural
Cross Country Classic. One of the biggest sports extravaganzas
on the campus, the Annual Roadrace, sponsored by Ivor Wynne
("Pop" to his friends) and his Intramural Council, will claim tho
endurance of over 100 competitors at 12:30 today when prexv
Bob Osborne is scheduled to fire the starting gun.
Your reporter hesitates to select a team winner this year,
since the pre-race dope has been concealed very cagily this
season, but undoubtedly the feature of the race will be the
battle between Piercy, Minchin, and the three or four othe>'
harriers conceded a chance to cop the bauble.
Chiefs Play Lomas Tonite
UBC's gift to Ihe Senior .A
League, the UBC Chiefs. »•>
into action tonight at 8:30 in
the UBC gym. Their first and
definitely their foremost adversary will be last year's Dominion Championship team, the
Meralomas.
Some 18 enthusiasts have been
turning out regularly to the Chief
workouts since University opened.
From this list which includes Nick
Tuiki, Pete Walker, Gord Lade, Bill
Holmes and Tom Gray, a tentative
team list has been posted which
shows Freddie Bossons and Gord
Broadhead at guard, Bob Fowler and
Jack Aemm at forward, and Art Phillips in the bucket slot.
Norm Watt from last year's Inter
A team, Al Knudsen from Duke of
Connaught, Rob Abercrombie from
Dunbar, Tut Jones from Duke of
Connaught, Chuck Raite from Pen-
ticton, and Jim McKeachic and Bobby
[;■'>■<.-;   fivrn   1 ■ <.--:I    year's   Chiefs   make-
ii])  Ihe  rest  of  the  tentative  team,
CONDITION  GOOD
Tlie team's condition is fairly good
and they will be ready to go tonight
according to all reports gleaned from
Coach  Doug  Whittle.
Everyone on the team seems to realize that it will be a tough game
and will be prepared to go on the
floor and give their "all" for the dear
old Alma Mater.
ATTENDANCE POOR
In previous years, the Chiefs have
drawn only small crowds to their
home games. It is hoped that this
year interest in basketball on the
campus will have reached the point
that at least some of the students will
find their way through the front door
of the gym into the game.
Again, game time is 8:30, the place
is the UBC gym, the Chief's home
floor. This i.s a pass feature. AMS
cards will be punched at the gate
and Booster passes will also be honoured   .
All-Stude
Hoop Loop
Under Way
Next year's basketballing
'Birds and Chiefs, the Intermediate A and Senior B teams
were seen in action last night.
Since these teams have been banned from the Vancouver and District
League, a form of house system has
been drawn up which allows the
Senior B team, the Acadia camp
team, and three Inter A teams to
compete. These teams each have a
separate hour of practice, under the
guidance of a separate coach.
MONDAY GAMES
Each Monday night as well as
occasionally before a Chief game,
these teams play in accordance with
a schedule that is soon to be posted
in the gymnasium. This system of
playing on the campus will allow the
players to get in time with basketball with no wasted time travelling
to gyms.
PLAY POOR
But 'back to the results of last
nights card in which Teams 2 and 3
met in the initial fracas at 7:15, and
Team 1 met Senior B in the second
tilt. Both games were hard fought
and a lot of spirit was displayed on
the part of the players. Being the
first scheduled games of the current
season, both games were filled with
sloppy ball handling, somewhat erratic shooting and a general tendency
for players to be a little rough. This
latter fault is no doubt caused by the
poor condition of all  clubs.
GAME SCORES
When the teams did click though,
they really clicked, and as the following scores show there were baskets
made. In the game between Team 3
and Team 2, Team 2 scraped a narrow 40-37 win over the other aggregation. The boys capitalized on the
calls for rough stuff, sinking a high
percentage of their foul shots. High
men for the winners were O'Brien
with 16 and Les Matthews with 9,
high for the losers were Howe with
14 and Kushnir with 8.
In the second game, the Senior B
team took an early lead and grimly
held on to take a 44-39 game from
Team 1. Ex-Joker President Dave
Hayward swished a mighty 14 points
through the hemp and was closely
followed by Senior B team-mate Price1
with 10, Witherspoon and Watson
both tied for high man in the lo.-dng
.-•quad  with  9  apiece.
Bajus Winner
In Divot Meet
The Championship flight of
the UBC Golf Club's tournament is finished. Saturday afternoon, after a gruelling morning round which saw Divotman
Esplen lead Doug Bajus by 2
holes, Bajus came back to beat
Esplen 5 and 3 to become this'
year's UBC golf champion.
Playing   on   a   wet   course,   under
definitely   adverse   conditions,   Esplen
shot   n   morning   score   of   71   to   the
74   of   Bajus.     In   the   afternoon,   the ,
round   started   by   both   men   having i
a birdie, they hall'ed  the second, and [
Bajus   birdied   the   third   and   fourth
to square  the  match   up.    Doug won
tiie seventh and eighth to go two  up.
His score at the end of the first nine
was  a   terrific  32,
TIES   RECORD

Ihe lille on the fifteenth. On the

uroimd    that    they    were   playing   ail.
In. die round as a whole, Ksplen's
shots off the tee were better than
his opponent's but the approach shots
and putting of Bajus were far superior,
Esplen did not lose the round because of poor golf, though, but rather
because he was not quite good enough to beat Bajus. Credit should
be given to both these men for the
outstanding golf that they played
all the way through the tournament.
In fact,  in six rounds that Esplen
played in, he had a par score total
for the six rounds.
EARLY RESULTS
To give you some idea of where
the other good golfers in the flight
went wrong, we will trace the line
of successes of the finalists. Esplen
first beat Bodie one up, then Ormio

Cross-Country Epic Today
By GIL GRAY
This is the day of the feature intramural event of the college year, the Cross Country.
This is the day for which trackmen have been preparing for many weeks, going through
an intense and vigorous physical conditioning process. This is it!
It  is hoped  that we  can  give the*;
call of "weather clear and track fast"
but this being Vancouver, everything
and anything might happen.   At any
rate,  conditions  today   will  probably
be best for the "mudders".
SPEEDSTERS PRESENT
Running again this year are lost
year's winner, Bob Piercy and runner-up, Pal Minchin. From the results
of the Invitational two-mile run at
half-time in the Homecoming football
game, in which run Piercy sliced
ten whole seconds off the existing
record and beat Minchin to the wire
by a fair distance, it would seem
that Piercy would have the slight
edge in today's race. However, that
race was around a flat stretch of
ground and not "cross country" as
is today's event. Things might well
be different.
FRESHMAN WINNER
In previous years it seems to have
been the style for freshmen like the
unofficial record holder Ken McPherson, Al Bain, and Bob Piercy to
cop the laurels. Whether this race
will run true to form will be unknown until that first man crosses
the finish line.
Since the runners have been practising regularly for some time now
and since the entry list is over 100,
this may well be one of the best
Cross Country ever to be held en the

It A I) SO C  WORKS
An outstanding and very commendable feature of today's event will
be the "stride by stride" description
of the race over the Public Address
system in the stadium. This "running" commentary will be efficiently
handled by the UBC "hams" in collaboration with Radsoc. Spotters will
be placed at key positions along the
course to broadcast the different
stages of  the battle.
In addition to this, a giant map of
the course i.s being erected in the
stadium so that the crowd can follow
the running of the race as it is announced. The map is being prepared
courtesy   of   the   ever-workin'   Mam-
flags will mark out the route. Numbers will be given the entrees at
the stadium. And here is a big note:
if the weather is really bad, the race
will  be  held  on  the  first  fine  day,
however,  if  it is only  drizzling, the
race will  go on as scheduled  .
Post time is 12:45.
