The well-conceived Science plan for bigger and better
Arts executives failed to jell in Arts 100 Thursday noon.
The rowdy group was called out
of order by one fifth year Engineer and graduating Class president,
Tom Scott, and a well-meaning
Arts group consisting of Daphne
Laird and several others.
All this started when the Undergraduate Societies Committee decided that a meeting should be
held to elect an Arts executive. A
committee, wih Daphne Laird as
chairman, was appointed to run the
job and it seemed things might
come off all right.
But the committee overlooked
one thing. That was the ever-
present lack of Arts spirit.
And something else came on the
scene. The Engineers, particularly
those in, second year, decided that
they would storm the meeting 200
strong and elect an Arts executive
consisting of Sciencemen.
So came the time of thc meeting,
Thc 200 second year Sciencemen
were there, along with fifteen Arts
men and women.
As soon as the meeting had been
called to order, the Engineers be-
gan their blitzkreig. Before thc
chairwoman could say "BAC," the
boys ehcted a president from
fourth year and a vice-president
from second year science. They
even named Artsmen as opponents.
Then the fun started. Then came
Tom Scott.
Scott, president of the Graduating Class and also president of
fifth year mechanicals, tried to tell
the youthful mob that the meeting
was not for them.
"Engineers have enough to do
without also having to cope with
a useless, spiritless Arts faculty.
We and the other groups of student organizations can do the job
without them, but the absence of
Artsmen only mokes it more difficult. Your exhibition of pointless
humor is out of place here. It
should be turned to more useful
channels. Let the Arts faculty die
by itself. We will do it no good
by such acts as yours." Thus spake
Tom^Scott to the erring Engineers.
So the meeting was ruled out of
order and nothing came of the
whole thing.
After the meeting, rumors were
heard that the USC would attempt
to elect an Arts executive in the
new year.

Campus Thefts
Worry Discips
• STEALING on this campus, in
some cases beyond the bounds
of petty theft, has reached such
proportions that the Discipline
Committee formed by the USC has
decided that something must ne
done about it.
With the complaints in tnlnd* of
many students that scarce texts
and near-priceless notes have been
lifted from their rightful owners,
the committee/ met Thursday noon
to look into the possibility of •
drafting plans for action.
Committee members wish to remind all students that anyone
caught stealing is subject to expulsion from this university and
would very likely be refused admittance to any other college In
They further warned all students
that with the approach of Christmas exams each year the complaints about stolen books and
notes always show a great increase,

Canada to start these special
courses for veterans when it started the special courses in January,
Feature of the 1946 special
sessions I* that veterans will be
able to complete a full year's work
before the opening of the regular
session in September.
The courses provided allow for
students to complete first or second
year Arts in the Winter and Spring
Sessions, or to complete the full
second year in Applied Science by
attendance in the Winter, Spring
and the regular Summer Sessions.
Courses are also provided for students in Agriculture.
The special Winter Session opens
on January 7 and offers 27 separate courses in Applied Science,
Arts and Agriculture. There are
two courses in Agriculture, Ave
in sciences, Ave in Commerce and
Economics, four in English, four
In Modern Languages, two in History, three in Mathematics, one in
Phyohology and one in Civil Engineering. A total of nine units
may be taken by any one student.
The Special Spring Session opens
on May 6 and offers 20 separate
courses: nine in Sciences, two in
Commerce and Economics, two In
English, two in languages, one in
History, three in Mathematics ,one
in Psychology.
A total of six units is allowed
during this session. Fee for the
course is $65. Spring Sessions
end on June 28.
These sessions are open to ex-
service personnel only.
Dr. G. M. Shrum, who is in
charge of the lecture room accommodation, stated that facilities will
be adequate. Twenty-four new
huts are being mad? ready. Eleven
of the.se' will be labs for geography,
geology, zoology, physics, chemistry and dairy work.
Also included will be two reading rooms behind the Applied
Science building. These rooms
will be equipped with washroom
facilities and will be available to
all students of the university.
White the accommodation offers
no great problem, the arranging
of the vets timetables is a headache for the Administration. Already overcrowded laboratories
will have to absorb many new
students. Dr. MacKenzie, the
president, previously stated that
labs may have to be continued
until 12:15 a.m. This would mean
a very long day if the newcomers
were required to attend 8:10

the UBC Branch No. 72,
Canadian Legion, is to be held
Monday, December 3 in Arts 100
at 1930 hours. Many vital topics
including coming National Conference of University Veterans
and the housing and unemployment situations will be discussed. IMPORTANT MEETING,
Plan For Vets
Apartments Fails
•   NEGOTIATIONS for an apartment building to house forty
to fifty married veterans without
children fell through Friday.
Accommodation which the Legion
has been trying to acquire is the
Blind School near Jericho Beach.
This building was taken over by
the RCAF during the war and
used to house the RCAF (WD).
Approximately forty percent of
the expected four thousand total of
veterans here next January will
be married. Of these, an expected
seven hundred will be affected by
the acute housing shortage.
President MacKenzie, Colonel
Shrum and the Legion are now
working on other plans to take
care of those in distressing circumstances as soon as possible.
Further information regarding
the Legion's housing of married
vets will be published in the
UBYSSEY as soon as accommodation is acquired.

On The Fence
There is one topic of national importance
on which every layman has an opinion,—
the Japanese repatriation versus assimilation
problem at present facing the government.
The opinions of the man on the street and in
the armchair vary in flavor from the extremely irrational to the coolly logical, the
amount of emotion, involved usually inversely proportionate to the amount of understanding the individual has of the situation.
On the University of British Columbia
campus, as in downtown Vancouver and
throughout the province, there are bitter
exponents of the anti-Japanese view, among
them ex-servicemen who have been prisoners of war at the hands of the Japanese. Just
as bitter on the other side of the irremovable
wall of deep personal opinion are the humanitarians, who paint the proposed expulsion
of the Japanese as Naziism, a death blow to
democratic principles for which so many
servicemen fought.
Campus opinion as far as we can gather
is neatly split, half and half, and we feel that
this year, more than any year, university
opinion reflects British Columbia opinion.
Nearly every day an irate student either
writes a letter* marches in to the office, or
approaches a staff editor, demanding that
the Ubyssey take an editorial stand on the
Japanese question instead of sitting silently
on the fence. Frankly, we have not felt that
in attempting to be a fairly representative
newspaper we can take a strong editorial
bias on the problem, since student newspapers seem to be watched very carefully
and our editorial opinion might be represented as a cross section view.
Exactly half of these excited students are
anti-Japanese, motivated either by frank
racial prejudice, or distrust of past post-war
tolerance which has verged in, the past into
"turn the other cheek" pacifism.
Other arguments used are the Japanese
war and prison camp atrocities, and the "almost impossible" cultural, economic, and
social assimilation of this race. They speak
of "business interests" which want the
Japanese back on the low-wage labor market
and anticipate unemployment and the resultant drop in the standard of living if such
a move were effected. They also claim that
easterners and prairie people have seen few
Japanese and fail to recognize that there is
a Japanese problem other than one existing
in the minds of the British Columbia popu-
The pro-Japanese base their arguments on
humanitarian principles, arguing for the
right minority groups and civil rights, and
claiming that discrimination against the
Japanese is undemocratic and illogical especially when Italians and Germans are not
being so threatened with deportation. They
compare the BC Allocation Centres to Jewish ghettos. War time atrocities are attributed to the Japanese, not the Japanese-
They also claim that the Japanese war
presented an excuse for British Columbians
in the fishing and farming industries to allow
racial prejudice to strengthen economic prejudice already existent in their minds.
Both these sides of the question have their
merits and demerits, their half-truths and
untruths, and exponents of these opposite
views here will probably never come to an
agreement. The reason for this is that the
majority of British Columbians have formed
their views on the Japanese from personal
contact and not along political * lines or
through inter-provincial bias as in other
provinces.   •
It is unfortunate that politics has entered
into the problem to such a great extent.
Humanitarians, and there are no more
racial prejudiced people in British Columbia
than Ontario, for instance, are probably
right in insisting that Japanese who still wish
to remain in Canada after past war conditions, would make peaceful citizens.
And the totally practical are also right in
stating that the Japanese-Canadians will find
assimilation a tough uphill struggle if they
ultimately congregate again in large communities on the British Columbia coast. The
racial prejudice which does exist in British
Columbia and future disputes because of
the labor population trend to British Columbia are bound to be insurmountable obstacles
for large numbers of Japanese.
British Columbia cannot be accused of
turning a deaf ear to the Japanese problem.
Every citizen has a vital interest in it.
But many British Columbians, pro and
con Japanese, feel that the whole of Canada
must take the solution of the Japanese deportation or assimilation problem as its responsibility. The Japanese problem should
not cause a split in Canadian unity, regardless of prejudice, creed, or economic theory.
• I WAS FORTUNATE enough to have
been accompanied in my morning's
walk through the Botanical Gardens by
Michael Flint, lately retired from the Army
of the Nile. As we made our way along
the many pleasant paths and surveyed the
flora laid out in classic precision before our
eyes, Flint kept up a pleasant commentary
and - what pleased me more - required no
response. I am ever at my ease with Flint
for this very reason.
Felicitous About Crafts
He spoke at length about Miss Felicity
Spindle, a young lady in whom I am extremely interested. She has devoted her life
to the encouragement of the household crafts,
and declares she will not rest until she has
seen a spinning wheel placed in every
parlour in British Columbia. The excellent
display in the Library this week can be taken
as evidence that her campaign is in ascendancy.
I am sensible that many of the women of
the university will laugh such a commendable effort to scorn. So much the, worse for
them, I declare, for it is a sign of their
degeneracy - an indication of the decline of
the graces! It is indeed lamentable that
so many young ladies embark upon an
education only to find at the end of it that
they can neither prepare a dumpling nor a
pastie, much less darn a sock.
I do discover I have fallen under Flint's
influence to no inconsiderable degree. Indeed thrice within the past fortnight I have
caught myself clicking my heels when I
arise from a table, or as I turn to indicate to
some gentleman his place in the Alcove.
Such actions are unseemly in one of such
small stature and sullen demeanour as myself, and I have resolved to rid my conduct
of such superfluous display.
Moreover I have taken to smoking a pipe,
despite the fact that for many years I used
only imported cigarettes and clear Havana
cigars which I obtained from an old friend
of my father's - a planter in Jamaica to be
more precise.
I can already boast of considerable skill
in the art of pipe smoking, although I cannot
yet walk about with my pipe in my mouth,
by reason of the fact that I collide with
stationary objects and damage my teeth.
Yesterday, after I had stood for many min
utes in a great press waiting for a tram, I
made to ascend the steps when of a sudden
the trolley doors closed upon my pipe and
the trolley moved off, carrying away my
very finest brier.
Flint - No Reformer He
Percival Westmoreland, related to me
some weeks ago the life history of the Flints.
They are come of the English gentry. Sir
Bernard Flint left England in a great rage
when the Lords acquiesced in the passage
of the First Reform Bill. He arose in the
Lords' Chamber after the fateful decision
had been made, wished, a pox upon them all,
and immediately took ship, bound for Upper
After the Family Compact was abolished,"
he arrived in due course in British Columbia, took up residence at Saanich but len
for the mainland in a huff when his speech,
delivered in Victoria on horseback at the
very spot where the Legislative buildings
now stand - a speech in which he proposed
a monarchy for Vancouver Island - failed
in its purpose.
At a later date he purchased ten thousand
acres in the Valley, and built a fine country
house which is to this day the seat of the
Flint family.
Gad Sir - Whipping Old Posts!
Toward the end of his life, (he died in his
hundred and seventh year of a fever), he
proclaimed himself the Marquis of Dewdney
and Chiliiwack and required every manservant in his household to wear the livery
which adorned his servants in the splendid
days when he ruled over the rotten borough
of Whipping Old Posts.
Sir Barnaby Flint, 'tis said, died in a
delirium, and the last sound he uttered was
a snatch of that gallant old air he used so
fondly to sing:
"When George in pudding times came o'er
And moderate men looked big, Sir."
When Westmoreland arrived at this point
in the tale, I blinked hard to keep a tear
from my eye and now that I have reflected
upon this story of a bitter life I admit openly
I was justified. My only hope is that I can
sufficiently forget the pathos of it before
many days pass me by, for I have been
invited to spend the Yuletide at the Flint
country seat and would feign to be in fine
• Beauty-On-The-Sp+t
•   PAGES have been written about the Power behind the

Tricks, perhaps, but how conceived without the help of a

are dull can be made to sparkle
behind long, black, alluring lashes;
thin, pale lips take on a full and
luscious glow; while a wan, white
cheek will faintly bloom under
the guiding hand of a great Brain.
Hair-do's up, hair-do's down;
Brains work overtime to make
Beauty the most glamorous girl
in town.
They lead her to the straight
and narrow way of a fascinating
diet that gives her for breakfast
the whiff of an orange; for lunch,
a toasted crumb; and for dinner,
four sardines,' well drained of oil,
on a crisp piece of lettuce. We
have not seen a sardine since before the war, but a crisp leaf of
lettuce is always nice.
Ice-packs, mud-packs, knapsacks
pardon—that belongs to the Man
behind the Gun—massage, spank,
slap, pat—far into the night Beauty does the will of Brains. The
great Minds go on and on contriving ways and means to further
Beauty's case. Flaming torches

Would that these noble organizations had seized upon a worthier cause to champion and extol as fervently. Heaven knows
we have many of them equally as
humanitarian and pressing in our
midst. What of employment for
returning servicemen or do our
humanitarian principles not apply
to our own kindred?
Our Indian Brothers,, let it not
be forgotten fought valiantly under Tecumseh and saved Canada
from national oblivvion! Why do
not these same organizations, advancing not "probable" but "proven" loyalty, demand that this
people (who surely have a truer
claim than oriental immigrants) be
given citizenship and a voice in
Canadian affairs?
Does not the shameful fact their
aged people are forced to exist
on a monthly stipend of food
(valued at $4.00) call for immediate redress? Try to imagine the
feelings of a Canadian soldier of
Indian birth returning after five
years of faithful service to find Us
leaning over backwards to give
humane treatment to the nationals (naturalized or otherwise) of
a nation who but months ago
tvas inflicting on our prisoners
such dastardly and inhumane tortures, while the rights of his
people which he has fought to preserve have been neglected.
Dr. Sedgewick wisely admitted
that racial prejudice did exist and
could not be easily removed. Surely it would not be more humane
to break up their families by scattering them over Canada and leaving them exposed to this prejudice? The coercion cry so often
prated about was recently investigated by an International Red
Cross Committee and found to be
without truth! Could there perhaps have been instead, ccerclon
in the thought that it would look
better when Japan invaded Canada if they had expressed their
patriotism to her earlier?
I know none of us could be so
naive as to fail to see why so
many, when they saw that Japan
was not going to be the victor
expressed a desire to rewrte their
decision to return to Japan (with
whose people, of course, they had
nothing in common?) especially
after V-J Day when so many more
of them changed their minds. Why
if they are such good Canadians
have they not come out and denounced any connection with
Japan, her aggressions and her
MacArthur says that he is ready
to take them, and if we do not deport the disloyal Japanese, (which
the government has the power to
do) yes, along with any other nationals who have been disloyal,
Canada will not long remain a
country that anyone will bother
to flght for again,

While I very much enjoyed Miss

written article on Chinese immigration, I can hardly believe that
Miss Lew is fully aware of the
nature of race relations as they
really are. In the first place, I
should like to disabuse her of the
idea that restriction of oriental
immigration necessarily implies a
theory of white supremacy. The
government is simply acting in
what it considers to be the best
interests of the country.
By the same token, the Chinese
government is fully entitled to enforce similar limitations on the
presence and activity of whites in
China. (In fact, she is even now
preparing to do just that.) I do
not see that such • reciprocal policy
is inconsistent with the notion of
racial equality. •
Nor do I quite see from Miss
Lew's article, why Canada should
be expected to adopt a policy which
is bound to be Detrimental to our
national welfare, purely as a nebulous contribution to a nebulous
"international good-will and understanding".
I should suggest that the government's policy is based, not on a
conviction that the Oriental is in
any way inferior, but simply on
the recognition of two deplorable
but nevertheless undeniable facts:
1. Orientals are ultimately in-
?.. Race problems Increase greatly
In proportion to the relative
size of the inasslmilable minority.
In support of my latter contention I would cite the case of the
Jews in eastern Canada. In Vancouver, the small Jewish population
probably meets with relatively
little intolerance. But in Toronto
and Montreal, where Jews comprise
a larger percentage of the populations, the Jew finds far more discrimination exercised against him.
This produces, in some cases, a
rather unpleasant form of reaction
behavior, which Gentiles imagine
justifies the discrimination which
produced it.
And so the vicious circle of racial
intolerance expands. Even discounting the present fanatical attitude towards Japanese-Canadians
purely as a post-war phenomenon,
I certainly would not suggest that
BC is a heaven of racial tolerance,
but I am convinced that racial
problems here are smaller than
they might be, only insofar as our
oriental population is relatively
If it becomes much larger, .1
dread a state of affairs in Vancouver, similar to the highly explosive situation existing at present
in Detroit between whites and
Negroes. It is conceivable that race
relations would deteriorate to such
an extent that people like Miss
Liw would unfortunately be denied
the opportunity of expressing their
views in tho UBYSSEY.
Ed. Note - !!!!!
To me, the most surprising aspect
of this very complex problem lies
in the fact that the most ardent
agitation for relaxing our immigration laws comes from Oriental-
Canadians, precisely the people
who would suffer most from any
increment to our oriental minority.

the PAST
—From 1920 UBC Annual.
"The second affair was a Leap
Year party, held In North Vancouver. Space forbids us to relate
the joys of that memorable event.
What chiefly remained in our
minds were the expressions of some
of the girls as they requested the'
pleasure of dances with rather
' embarrassed-looking   gentlemen.
"Before the party a 'lottery' was
held where the girls had the inestimable privilege of drawing for
their escorts. (Smelling salts were
provided and proved most useful.)
It then became the duty of each
maiden to write a little note of
invitation to her victim.
"Most of these letters were truly
remarkable. (We speak whereof
we know, for we all read them.)
Even more remarkable were some
of the letters of acceptance. New
Westminster, Burnaby and Central
Park were given as places of residence, and the girls were requested
to call for their escorts.
"It is not too much to say that
Jbr a week the whole College was
demoralized as the result of the

with such an original festivity."

Dear Madam:
If ever there was a disgusting
lack of spirit in the Arts Faculty
it was on Thursday noon when
there was an attempt to elect
their general executive. Amidst
the yelling, cursing engineers the
odd frightened Artsmen could be
spied chewing his fingernails and
looking for the quickest way out.
The whole business procedure
was a disgrace but the blight now
on that faculty tan only be blamed on the Artsmen themselves.
Eighty percent of the students at
the meeting were sciencemen and
true to their more baser instincts
they raised general- hell and disorder.
Because of those "don't give a
damn" Artsmen not present the
"lowly reds" took over the meeting
and proceeded to elect themselves
into the Art's executive. What was
the matter with all those bright
boys and girls screaming down in
the cafe or sleeping over In the

some class enthusiasm or get out,
we don't want you!
There will probably be another
attempt and this time campus cops
will bs parading around and waving their umbrellas and canes at

Ah Sciencel-Lobster
Tan A Thing Of Past
• SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Totalux, a General Electric
device designed to correlate light intensity and time in
making exposures for photo engravings, never was intended
to win the graces of a beautiful blonde, but it did just that
last summer by providing scientific sun bathing for Mrs.
Marian Dozois, comely secretary in G-E's Special Products
There's A Story With This/
Mrs. Dozois, whose fair skin always winds up with the inevitable
lobster tan in any joust with 014
Sol, was studying the function of
Totalux on-a day when she hit
upon the brilliant idea. "Totalux
automatically Axes time in relation to amount of light,' 'she reasoned. "Why can't it prevent me
from getting a sunburn?"
By dint of previous, painful experience, she had learned she
could remain no longer than 20
minutes in bright sun light. But
it was those hazy days, those in-
between cloudy and bright days
that always fooled her. "On sucn
a day, maybe Totalux can space
out the equivalent time to 20
minutes of bright sunlight," she
With the aid of sympathetic fellow workers, Totalux accompanied
Mrs. Dozios on her next trip to
the beach. Mrs. Dozios frolicked,
swam, even slept on the sand while
Totalux kept the vigil and measured out the time. On that particular day, Totalux found' a measure of 20 minutes of bright sunlight in one hour and 10 minutes.
When time was up, Mrs. Dozios
was awakened by a bell attachment. Result: beginning of a good

next day.
Totalux- worked for Mrs. Dozios'
sun bathing identically the way It
operates for photo engravers,
lithographers, and blueprint makers. In either printing or sun
bathing, it takes into account
fluctuations of light intensity and
then proportions time of exposure
in accordance with these fluctuations, thus eliminating trial and
In operation, an ultra violet
sensitive photo tube attached to
the Totalux set is so placed that
it receives light from any light
source being used for the exposure. The Indicator on the Totalux
dial is moved to the desired duration of time in terms of exposure
(in Mrs. Dozios' case 20 minutes),
and a switch is turned on.
The photo tube passed current
proportional to the intensity of the
light received to the Totalux device, such action causing the indicator on the dial to move accordingly back to zero. When the
dial registers zero, the desired
amount of light time (has been ob.
tabled, and either a bell attachment rings or a light attachment
flashes a warning.
Although Mrs. Dozois found a
new use for G-E's Totalux, the
cost and precision sensitivity of
the device will probably hold its
widest use to that of controlling
lithographic rather than body exposures.
•   IN an hour "riddled with a lively amount of corn," said
one observer, Sciencemen were found to be better citizens
than Commercemen.
The Parliamentary Forum debate of last Wednesday resulted in
Leader of the Opposition Bob Keller, a' Scienceman, winning his
case despite the efforts of Commerce Prime Minister, Harry Bell-
Irving. Th* topic was: "Moved
that this House recognize that
Commerce graduates are better
fitted to take their place In society
than Science graduates."
A small blond second-year Arts-
woman, one of a pair of identical
twins, put the final and "only"
logical touch to the debate. Joan
Christian showed an oversight by
the Forum executive, the speakers,
and the House when they did not
realize that "Science Graduates"
could include Commercemen since
they study the social science, Ec-
onomicfr She pointed out that
"Science graduates" should have
been changed to "Engineering
Harry Bell-Irving started off
with "a man's efficiency is usually
measured by the number of women he has around him. This
shows that Commercemen are
more efficient since there are an
abundance of women in the Commerce faculty compared to the
several in Applied Science."
Bob Keller stated that while
Commercemen learn to make money and run small businesses,
Sciencemen learn to devise objects that are useful and beneficial
to man.
He continued with the argument
that though more jobs are available to Commercemen, they Include th elegant positions of office-
boys and bookkeepers, jobs which
are far beneath the superior intellect of Sciencemen,

McGoun Debaters
Judged AtTryouts
• TONY SCOTT, Stu Chambers,
Morris Berson and Dave Williams were chosen as this year's
McGoun Cup debaters at the tryouts Wednesday afternoon.
Judged by Professors F. G. G.
Wood, Joseph Crumb and Edmund
Morrison, the four were among
ten that tried out. The others were
Don McRae, Bob Prittie, Hugh
McLeod, Neil Cook, Alan Roeher
and  Rosemary  Hodgins.
Known as tahe "Valhalla" of
Forumites, the McGoun Cup debates are the annual feature of
the Western Universities' Debating
League. This is the only league
of its kind in western Canada and
includes Universities of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British
Columbia. Head-quarters are in
Winnipeg where Leslie Arr-Row-
land is the perennial secretary.
The topic for the debates has not
yet been finally worded but its
core will be like that used in the
try-outs, that the government
should accept the responsibility for
full employment.
Scheduled for January 19, the
debates will take place simultaneously in Winnipeg, Saskatoon,
Edmonton and Vancouver so that
each university must have a travelling and a home team. This year,
UBC's travelling arguers will go
to Saskatoon.
Due to reservations of all large
rooms downtown, the debate ln
Vancouver will tentatively be held
in the Brock Hall which will mean
that only outsiders will pay admission.
Since the organization of the
league in 1931, UBC has won the
big cup twice. But with the help
of Williams, Chambers and Berson, all former McGown Cup debaters, the Forum executive feel
that UBC should come out victor
this year.

according to Luke Moyls
• ACCORDING TO the sports editor of Portland's family
journal, there's a fair-sized college just north of tiie 49th
parallel that's got nothing but sports, and yet it hasn't even
got a department of Physical Education.
"Greg" Gregory, boss of the sports desk of Portland's
popular "Oregonian", was the astonished scribe.
There's nothing like reading about one's home-town college,
so I lapped up the story on UBC with avid interest.
Expressing amazement, Greg noted that this Canadian
university not only provides its athletes with opportunities to
participate in all the sports common to the American institutions, but it also offers such sports as English rugby, soccer,
cricket, skiing and fencing.
Nothing But Sport Here
Noting that UBC had just joined the Pacific Northwest
Inter-Collegiate Athletic Conference, he revealed that the
basketball coaches of the other schools in this loop are looking
forward to tackling the Thunderbirds.
Ever since the Thunderbirds scared the Oregon Webfoots
in a two-game series a year ago, the coast hoop mentors have
been keeping their eyes on the Canadian quintet.
In spite of the two losses the 'Birds received at the hands
of the Ducks again this year, the Americans are still looking
forward to big things from this year's Blue and Gold
Greg also mentioned the fact that the Thunderbird cross
country team has made them sit up and take notice. It was
quite in order for UBC to take the inter-collegiate road race
title for two straight years, but when they came back to
Spokane and snatched it again a few weeks ago, that was
too much.
Lots Of Athletes, Too
It's now a recognized fact down there that the Canadians
have the team to beat when it comes to cross country competition.
As for American football, they're not so sure about that.
Most of them were under the impression that Canadians
don't know the first thing about the US grid game. They
confused Canadian football with rugger and soccer, not
realizing that American and Canadian grid are based on the
same fundamentals.
At any rate, they feel that they'll just have to wait and
see what happens when the Thunderbird football squad opens
its initial conference season next fall.
Then there's track and field, and tennis, too. Canada has
always been well represented in these sports, so the Northwest colleges are expecting some keen competition from the
Canucks in the dual track and tennis meets.
Cleaning Off The Cuff
