Mamooks   Mad
As Posters
Left Lying
Mamooks have  requested   that  all.
oiganizations that have ordered posters pick them up as soon  as possible.
Due to limited space that the workshop lhas, uncalled for posters are
cluttering up much wanted space. As
an ultimatum for organizations who
do not pick up their ordered posters
Mamooks will put said organization J staged by Radsftc
on their "black list". This means of
course that no more posters or other
service will be done for any organization which infringes this new ruling which was moved in the last
meeting.

Libel Suit Looms For
U Of T Student Paper
TORONTO, Ont. (CUP) — A new student publication at
University of Toronto hit a snag in its first edition last week.
The editors of the bi-monthly sheet
called The Reporter now face libjl
suits instituted by the Canadian Seamen's Union on behalf of Mr. M. E.
Nuttall, one of their officials.
• The offending paragraph from The
Reporter stated: "Nuttall and four of
his CSU colleagues were subsequently charged with kidnapping, intimidation, illegal boarding and other offenses. Today, Nuttall and two others
are in the federal penitentiary."
Actually, Nuttall is still awaiting
trial, and is not in custody at the'
moment.
His lawyers state that they will
also apply for a contempt order since
the   case   was   already    before   tho

Public Assisted?
Mystery Meeting
Scheduled For
Brock Today
AU students interested in participating in ''public assisted" tours of
Canada during the summer are invited to meet Wednesday at 12;30 in
Biock South (Double Committee
Room).
Many students have been besieging The Daily Ubyssey because this
notice appeared in yesterday's
'Tween   Classes.
The most common question is
"What   is  'public   assisted".'"
Several people on i'he campus
have been questioned in relation
lo this phrase but it still remains
a   mystery.
Grant Livingstone, instigator of
ihe "assisted tours" sairl, "It is as
much a mystery i'o me as to you.
All I can say is that the students
who are really interested should
come to the Double Committee Rcom
today."
It is known that sponsor of the
meeting is the campus section of
NFCUS. trying to bring together all
Canadian university students into a
closer  harmony.
~~ By RAY BAINES
Student officials described the affair as "the most disgustingly apathetic display in a decade."
No nominations have, as yet been
received  for  other student  positions.
Elections will commence February
2 and follow on for a period of two
weeks.
A referendum on student finance
administration will be held on February 2 also.  Three  choices;  a  busi-
*
ness manager, a student finance committee  and   the   present   system   remain open to students.
As deadline for nominations looms it appears no election
for AMS president and'treasurer will be necessary.
Unless further nominations are filed before five p.m. today
Harry Curran and Walt Ewing will be president and treasurer

Private Licences
Offered Students
By UBC Aero Co-op
Private pilots' licenses for as low
as $l.r),00 are being offered by the
UPC Co-Op Aero Association to students, alumni and staff, according to
club officials.
Details of the scheme, a subsidy
aid by the government, have appeared
for the past month. Club officials
point out that tlie Versity Aero Club
has, its own two new modern aircraft
and because of its co-operative charter, can offer this course to its members at as little as $15.00 if they enter
thc R.C.A.F. later, or $115,000 if they
do not,
For their money, the members get:
1. 30 hours of rigidly supervised
fly ing in the new safest trainers available.
2, 50-60 hours ground school on air
regulations, meteorology, navigation,
radio,   etc.
?j. Club privileges at the airport,
including lounge and cafeteria of a
private  club.
4. A 25 percent saving from commercial operators'  rales.
All this can be done for as little
as Slfi.75 per month, most, of which
is refundable under the Aero Club's
registered  charter.
Believe it or not, there i.s still a
few vacancies left in the Association's
membership which is limited to 60
members, and the gals arc just as
eligible for the club and government
subsidy as  the men.

CONSERVATIVE WHIP
Lawyer Wild As Bird Breaks Law
A brutal crime has been committed and because of if, a third year
law student is seeking legal advice
in. the case of the Crown versus
Horace, t'he owl.
It seems that Monty Tyrrwhit-
Drake. third year law student,
spotted an owl busily engaged in
polishing off the second drumstick
of a neighbor's chicken. Ever vigilant to the ways of crime anrl trained to observe law-breakers. Tyri -
Vahh'-Drake's first impulse was to
capture the guilty bird and brim; it
io swift justice. This was accomplished by the use of a pail and
soothing words of wisdom (which

Students To Hear Tory
Eden Thursday Morning
Anthony Eden, official of the British Conservative party,
and British Foreign Secretary under the Churchill regime, will
address UBC students in the Armories Thursday at 11:30.
All lectures will be cancelled at
11:30. Eden will speak as soon as
the audience is assembled.
The speech which Mr. Eden will
give will of necessity be quite short
as he must' attend a civic luncheon
as soon as he has finished.
This will be one of the very few
public appearances which Mr. Eden
will be making in Canada and students at UBC should feel quite honored that hc is speaking to them,
His appearance at UBC will be
sonsored jointly by thc University and
the AMS. Platform guests will include the Chancellor, Mr. Eric W.
Hamber. the acting president, Professor Geoff. Andrew and mayor
Thompson of the city of Vancouver:
The Board of Trade will be represented by its president, Mr. Howard
Mitchell.
All of these arrangements are conditional in that they depend entirely
upon Mr. Eden's plane arriving on
time.
If arrangements can bc completed
it is hoped to have the University
Pipe Band out, but as yet this can-
not  be  confirmed.
Following Mr. Eden at 12:30, IFC
will present Louis Jordan and his
band in aid of flood relief.
Other arrangements for the noon-
hour are as yet in an unconfirmed
state so little can be said about them.
However, it can be quoted that thc
WUS has something up its sleeve.

Kogen All Wet Declares
McGill Med. Official
MONTREAL, Jan. 25--(CUP)—Fred Kleman, editor of
the McGill Daily today replied to charges of racial discrimination in the McGill medical school.
The charges were made by Rabbi David C. Kogen in his
address to the UBC Civil Liberties Union last Friday.
Rabbi Koj'on told students that, Jew

than nun-Jewish lo gain admittance
to McGill medical school..
Klemnn replied: "There is absolutely no racial discrimination a I.

'T regret unfounded charges of

At, UBC Tuesday Rabbi Kogen answered that the emphasis placed on
character was the loophole used at
most medical schools where an applicant's religion i.s considered to
have a bearing on his character.
"The Jewish answer to character

Dancing With Tradition
It has often been .said that the way lo
combat the communists is to beat litem al
their own game. For that reason it is interesting to note a recent development on the UBC
campus.
While attention has been focused on the
charges of "Red infiltration" into various
clubs, the institution of free enterprise has
been quietly doing a little infiltrating of its
own. A commercial dance school has been
given permission to set-up shop within the
heretofore sacred environs bounded on the
one side by Wesbrook Crescent and on the
other by the Gulf of Georgia.
The sanctity of the campus has been so
highly regarded by past administrations that
students had to build their own stadium in
order to ensure that commercial chastity of
the university remained unsullied.
This vigilance has gradually been relaxed
and rightly so. UBC was the first college in
Canada to have a bank branch on its grounds.
Bul it is possible to swing too far from the
ideals of the early senates which sometimes
maintained their principles at the expense of
practicality.        ,
UBC is probably the first university in
Canada to have a professional dance school
on the campus.
A line of demarcation is, of course, difficult to draw but the students are entitled
to wonder where it all will end. If close
watch is not kept the day when cigarette ads
consume all available blackboard space could
be just around  the corner,
The added convenience of a Safeway in
the Auditorium basement is another matter
which might tax the minds of those charged
with guarding against too severe commercial
enroachment on UBC's educational function.

Songsters Sing Songbook's Praise
Among the finer, and less expensive pleasures of life in these days when HCL has
become an accepted headwrilers abbreviation, i.s the rousing good fun of hearty song
around an open hearth, preferably with brimming steins rampant.
A noble contribution to life's little pleasures has come from three UBC students
who put three year's el'forl into a compendium, of joviality called the UBC Song Book.
It's a .smart, blue backed little book that
will fit easily into a back pocket or slip into
the edge of a beer case. ,
Dave Morton and Ruth Ketcheson, editors of the book, have collected the best of
college, drinking, fraternity and just plain
musing songs into a book with a thousand
and one night's fun packed into its 224 pages.
And if you're a monotone, the cartoons
of Buzz Walker which illustrate every song
will  keep you chuckling. ,

LAST WEEK WE. being loft with
a column a trifle shorter than
we thought a good column
ought to be, printed a pair of misprints from "New Republic" and
"Soviet Weekly" which dealt with
the late Mr. Nikolai Vavilov and
Mr. Sergei Vavilov. the former a
Soviet geneticist and i'he latter president of thc Academy of Sciences of
the USSR and a physicist of some
repute.
The reason we reprinted these mis-
pi hits was that both had mixed the
brothers Vavilov by seme quirk and
had come to conclusions which, were
not only contradictory but mutually
false. Since we have, at one time
or other, pcrpei'rated equally idiotic
typographical errors ourselves, they
struck us as delightfully humorous
--hence we passed them en in the
hope that you, O uncountable readers, would join us in our innocent
chuckle,
It seems, however, that some of
our uncountable readers (among
whom we are honored to number
Professor G. M. Volkoff of the Department of Physics! constiued our
remark concerning the quotations
to mean that Sergei Vavilov vvafc the
gi neticist concerned in the I.ysenko
di'-pute and thai' Ihe dispute had
elided happily with Ihe elevate ;i
of Vavilov to the prc.-idonry of the
USSR  o'lidi'iiiy  of  Sciences,
T lis. of course. las Profess: r
Volkoff has pointed out in a letter
lo the editor) is jusl not riuo. The
geneticist, concerned is Nikolai Vavilov and Sergei Vavilov, his brother,
is president of the Academy of Sciences-hut   is a  physicist.
We refrained from comment ing on
the issue on the ground that clowns
might' well stick to clowning and
leave serious issues to moralists.
However, since Professor Volkoff
has not only brought the issue lo
hand in i| letter to the editor but
presented a very one-sided view of
it, we should like to drop our false
nose and stage paint, and insofar as
we are able shed i'he robes of down-
hood and attempt to prcsenl the
issue as we see  it.
of genetics. Thc first, and larger
school, headed by Nikolai Vavilov
adhered to Vhe Mendellian view
which denies the inheritance of acquired Characteristics. The other
school, headed by Trofim D. Lysenko developed a theory of genetics based specifically on the inheritance of acquired characteristics
following the lead of Darwin.
Lysenko was a practical plant
breeder and concerned himself specifically with developing planl species which would thrive under
Arctic, desert and other adverso
climatic conditions. In this field
his theory fccmed to work and ho
developed many useful varieties and
won wide acclaim in thc USSR
though foreign scientists remained
skeptical.
F
OR A NUMBER of years there
were, in tho Soviet Union, two
schools of  thought   in   the  field
Vavilov. on toe other hand, was
a iheoreiica! geneticist and con-
n rued him.-elf primarily with lie's elnping sneeies of din: ophiia i a
sort of fly i and oilier organisms
;i: lh" lo go of solving certain paob-
leai:, isisiii in the Meiidolicn  theory.
The Snvo'ty 1,'ni n. il so happened, possessed only a limited number
of competent geneticists (not everyone is filled to be a geneticist) and
Ihe majority of them were working
under Vavilov. on theoretical pro-
,.< , I.s ' which promised, ultimately,
to yield conclusions of immense
value ato humanity but which were,
meanwhile,   unproductive.
Wen iVar clouds began to gather
on the hori/cn. the powers that he
in the Kremlin felt that since there
I'lg-'ht be, in the near future, a real
need to produce food on then un-
! seductive land, a larger number
if Soviet geneticists should be employed on projects, which premised
io yield immediate productive remits.
"THEY MUST LIVE UP TO THEIR PRiNC!PLES~dR""CLEAR OUT""
Accordingly, Vavilov was approached (it is believed) and requested to direct the majority of his
staff (he was then in charge of all '
Soviet genetic research) to practical
projects as suggested by Lysenko.
Vavilov apparently replied that'
the task pf a scientist was to discover the truths of the universe
for all mankind and that it would
be contrary to the best' interests of
science to direct his staff to Ly-
senko's   projects.
This, of course, roused thc authorities and Lysenko replaced Vavi-
Jev.
PROFESSOR VOLKOFF alleges
that Nikolai Vavilov died in u
concentration camp in 1942.
There seems to be no doubt t'hat
hc died in 1942. Likewise there
seems to be no doubt that he did
not die in thc comfort of a Moscow
apartment. It is reported, ihowcvcr.
thai' he died, not in a concentration
camp but on a research project in
the hinterland of the Soviet Union
— reports are by no means precise
as to just where he did die but
there is no more evidence that he
died in a concentration camp than
on  a  research  project'.
To return to our story, a con-
linversy is presently raging over the
'iiiplications of Lysenko's theory of
inheritance ef acquired characteristics. It. is argued by some that
Ihe theory will be used to prove
dial Soviet man is superior to other
men because of the inherited benefits of Soviet culture.
Lysenko. however, has denied
this and declares that, although
man's inherited characteristics may
change over the centuries in such
physical aspects as are necessitated
by his adaptation to a changing
physical environment, his cultural
environment will not alter him.
Thus he becomes less hairy through
wearing clothes but he will not
become wiser through the influence
of Marxism on successive generations.
Professor Volkoff may have further and even more accurate information. In any case we would
appreciate thc views of a practicing
scientist on this issue. We should
welcome a guest column from him
on   tho  subject.

Fraternities Are Useful
By Dave Williams
There are several criticisms of Fraternities and Sororities inevitably voiced. My
purpose is to discuss these objectively. Although. I shall refer mainly to fraternities,
much of what I write is true also of sororities,
(1) Snobbishness: In Canada, snobbishness usually derives from wealth. No person
can deity that some students .from wealthier
families join fraternities; other such students
do not. It i.s more important to note that in
fraternities there are many students whose
lamilies either cannot subsidize their education or, if so, can to a limited extent only.
These students attend university solely on
their own efforts. I believe that most critic-
who speak ot money snobbishness don't appreciate that lad. Most fraternity members
laugh  biiterly  when  persons say  fraternities
ispo  facto  represent  wealth.
(2) Discrimination: the most serious, and
most truthful, charge. I grant that fraternities
have been guilty of it, although their record
here ha.s been better than elsewhere. I have
never known a Catholic to be barred on religious grounds by a fraternity at UBC; 1
have never known Jewish students who
joined predominantly Gentile fraternities
and I know at least one Chinese fraternity
member on this campus. Of course there's
room for improvement; the point is; the
same is true of many other organizations.
Fraternities have to find a balance between democratic liberty permitted in choosing associates, and undemocratic discrimination. They are ready to accept a member
solely on personal merits, apart from background. If sororities were more willing to do
so I believe much criticism of Greek Letter
Societies would vanish. The Societies haw

university, they serve to good pip-pose. Wednesday, January 26, 1919

'Highly Improbable Being"
Bouncing limothy,
nd. New NFCU
Lege
liv LOIS MAKTIN
TORONTO. Jan, 25 (CUPi -
NFCUS' new national head. Gordon
Gwynne-Timothy, is an almost legendary figure on the University of
Toronto campus.
Probably "bouncing Gord G-T", a.s
he is referred to in a college .sons,
would be dismissed a.s entirely legendary if he were not also one of
the most familiar figures in the lives
of umpteen thousand U of T students. His press-reported activities
alone, with his record for sheer
accomplishment would be enough
to put him on anybody's list of
Highly Improbable Beings. The
NFCUS leadership i.s just the latest on his list of important positions
on t'he unversity scene, his first
venture in  the national  field,
As president of thc National Federation of Canadian University Students, philosophy student Gwynne-
Timothy puts the crowning touch
to a highly successful undergraduate   career.    To   NFCUS   he   brings
experience', energy and his own universities. Since NFCUS has ilios-
loniarkable personality. In his own en to restrict its operations in for-
college,  Trinity. Gordon  is Head  of       cign fields, its chief aim in the next

been class president, sometime head

an assistant editor of the college

whole he is president of the Students' Administrative Council in
this, his final year, after having
K'i'ved as member frcm Trinity and
Radio anrl Public Relations Coni-
i.iisi-icncr on the council last year.
The constant and purposeful activity of this lithe 2,'J-year-el(l RCAF
veteran who has been described
variously as "a jet-propelled frog"
or "a likeable grasshopper", is a
continual .source of ama/.enient to
the legions of friends who shake
iheir heads and ask, "What makes
Gordon   run?"
Toronto's dynamo executive has
very serious aims with regard to
NFCUS. "I believe.'' he says, "that
the strength of NFCUS must lie in
student    enthusiasm     in    Canadian
unity on the  university  level."
When Gord attended the NFCUS
conference in December a.s an cx-
olficio delegate from the Toronto
Mudents' council, he gained an immense cuthusia: ill for ihe w rl.. His
great hope that NFCUS may fo-tor
understanding ana ng tie many
groups in Canada vans the factor
which most influenced, him vXaa n
in decided to add NFCUS to les
already   crowded    time-table.
"NFCUS'," he say-a "affects the
lives of the people wh • aro going
lo bc our leaders in the next few
years. They, in turn, can influence
the many, many people who will
come under their leadership in
schools, universities, in industry and
in   the  professions."
His dream is that every student in
Canada will in some way become
away of the NFCUS purpose,  whe-

advantage  of   there  opportunities'.

A Bit
About
Basketball
By RON PINCHIN
Many times tho question has
been asked, "What's wrong with
our Basketball Teams?" In the recent past, all UBC Basketball teams
have been definitely on the downgrade. "Where does the fault lie?"
Jack Pomfret, Ole Bakken and
Doug Whittle have all been doing
a great job coaching their respective squads, but I feel it is what
lies between the lines that counts
toward making good basketball
players.
Recently, five boys were engaged
in a game of "Chink" in the gymnasium previous to a regular practice. The two older players were
playing against three fellows from
the Intermediate A teams, and these
latter youngsters were doing a good
job fooling their older competitors
with some of the simplest plays of
the game. Had not the former group
enlisted aid from another of their
teammates, they would have succumbed to an appalling defeat in
the hands of the less-experienced
three-some.
Human Nature
It is only human nature to get
out and have a good time while
engaging in this game of basketball, but you can never iron out
difficulties encountered in regular
play if you persist in a nonsense
style of practice.
Boys playing basketball for this
University are not necessarily concentrating on perfecting their styie
of play at all times. During a regular scheduled game, they look like
a winning team. During regular
practice sessions, they again appear
to be a winning team. It is apart
from these two aspects of basketball that they are not fulfilling
their best efforts.
They can never become steady,
smoothly-operating groups if they
persist in using fancy styles on
"off" days. Again the question,
''What is wrong with UBC basketball teams?" Tlie answer: nothing!
Footnotes
Reid Mitchell . . . boasted that his
boys would finish in one of the
top four spots in the Evergreen
Conference.At present they are not
doing so well, but a few more wins
under their belts will soon remedy
that situation. However, if in unscheduled practice he prefers to
employ sleight-of-hand passing,
he is merely going to confuse his
teammates during regular play.
Bill Raptis at the first of the 'season, considered one of the hottest
shots to hit the campus since
Sandy Robertson and Ole Bakken.
And his standing total points scored
for the Chief squad shows the effectiveness of his shooting ability.
However, he has not really used
his abilities to full advantage. Recently, the team showed a string
of twelve straight losses, not the
fault of anyone in particular of
course, but it is playing sruch as
already mentioned that is ruining
his natural style of play as well
as his teammates'. Bill Bell ... has
the gift of height; he should use it
a.s he has in the past. It was noticed
that you were one of the few who
were honestly trying to improve
their style of play. Hal Lyninan . . .
has a good hook shot, but shouldn't
ruin it by merely throwing the bad
away. Take lessons from Bakken,
as is Art Phillips ... and cultivate
it to its full advantage. He and
Johnny McDermott were doing a
good job of showing how to practice basketball sensibly. Bill Bold-
Ing ... a little more of that, conscientious practice, and possibly
ho won't have to carry that worried look about him on the floor
of play. The lads from Ryerson . , .
good practice as they have done in
thc past ha.s made them into some
of the very finest athletes at UBC.
They may be handicapped by lack
of height, but they have overcome
their difficulty by employing real
.speed as a means to slip by their
opponents.
Can Improve
All teams can improve and develop into very strong units of basketball. As mentioned earlier, a
few wins under iheir bulls, and
they will be in the position to spiritually whip almost any team thoy
come up against, But it lakes practice,    rjnnd,    >;olid   prat'tii'i-.

Varsity Swim Stars
Match Strength
With YMCA Club
After UBC's swimming
team make their debut tonight
against the local YMCA squad,
they will be ready to take part
in a full schedule of meets
against college teams and outside amateur clubs.
Using not a full team in tonight's
match, having the record breaking
duo Jack Creedon and Bob Thistle
missing from the lineup, the contest
is more of an ice-breaker for those
members who have not yet been in
competition  with outside clubs.
EXTENSIVE TRAINING
With the YMCA fracas under then-
belts, along with more extensive
training in the next three vveeks, the
team will be in top shape for their
important match with the highly-
touted Washington Frosh. The UBC
hopefuls were secretly glad for , tho
extra time thoy got when their
Washington meeting was postponed,
allowing them to gain the necessary
experience   from   tonight's   local   lilt.
Regarded as one of thc teams to
beat in National Collegiate Championships, Washington will send only its
talented Frosh watermen to the UBC
contests, who by themselves will be
tough opponents for Varsity.
EVERGREEN LOOP
The two teams square off on thu
edge of Crystal Pool on Saturday,
February 19 to decide virtual supremacy  in  the  Evergreen   loop.
Following this battle, UBC travels
to an invitational meet with Victoria
P on March 12, with the entire team
taking part in the events. From what
is known of the Island team, the contest should be a first class workout
for the locals.
With the B.C. Championships under
way on March 19, UBC will enter the
full team once again in a field where
there is a good chance for the Varsity watermen to make the honors for
thc province.
NO  ANSWER
Although Western Washington was
scheduled to make an appearance
with the UB'C squad, no answer has
yet. been received by coach Doug
Whittle of their intention of competing with such strong a team as
thc Thunderbirds. Unless a definite
answer one way or (he other is obtained, soon, Whittle will consider
the matter as a moral victory for
Var.fi ty.
CURRENTLY LEADING the Viking scoring parade is lanky
forward, Jerry Starr. A member of last years all Winco team,
Starr will lead invasion of UBC's campus when the Vikings
meet the 'Bird hoopsters in the gym, Friday noon.

Disappointed 'Invaders'
Travel To Bellingham
Students To Cross Border
To Watch 'Birds Perform
Those traveling sport fans who felt gypped this fall when
the long-awaitecl football game with the Vikings of Western
Washington was held on a Thursday noon and consequently
killed any chances of a full scale "Bellingham invasion," will
come into their own this Saturday night when a belated invasion Is staged,
hand would be disastrous for the 'Bird
cause.
We realize only too well that is an
easy thing to sit on the sidelines at
all 'Bird games and throw disgruntal
remarks about concerning the ability
of the  'Birds.
However, very few people actually
realize the grilling workouts that the
boys 6 re subjected to under the
watchful eye of Coach Pomfret.
However, it is a lot harder to get
out. there and keep on cheering for
the boys that are playing their hearts
out for the old Alma Mater.
And this weekend will give the
students their big chance to show
the 'Birds that they arc behind them
100 percent. Friday at UBC the 'Birds
and Vikings tangle in a noon-hour
tussle. Thc Saturday night at Bellingham, a big invasion is being featured
to support the 'Birds on their usuall;'
disastrous road trips.
The Vikings will have a lot to offei
in the way of competition too, ever
though they are rated on a par with
the UBC club.
All-WINCO selection for last year
Jerry Starr, 6' 3" forward, will pact
thc Viking attack. In the first eight'
games for the WWC aggregation this
season, Starr has a 109-point' total.
The Viking line-up includes nine
returning lettermen as well as some
top flight new material. Among th;
latter is 6' 6" centre Dick Ravenhorst
who has a game average of close tc
11 points for the club this year.
The  excuse  for  the   trip,  since  one-i
is    usually    thought    necessary,    will
he .the  basketball  game  betvvecn  the
Thunderbirds  and   the  Vikings. t
The tilt, a regular Evergreen con-
ierence game, will give local fans
the rare opportunity of seeing the
'Ends perform a was- from home, Th-'
day before, on Friday at noon, the
Birds play the first of their tw"
names with Western Washington in
which they will be fighting for a clear
title to the league's number five spot.
A clean sweep of the series would
give them such a berth.
Already a number of students arc
making their plans to "'invade" the
border town ot Bellingham. Most will
travel in ears and set out at various
times.
The game will gel under way et
eight o'clock but most students will
leave earlier in tlie day to allow them
to get  in a  few hours of shopping,
To all disappointed invaders this
if: your chance to get out for a trip
and at the same time support the
'Birds on a road trip.

Crucial Game
For Indian
'Bird Icemen
The big hockey game tonight
between UBC and Vancouver
Indians, in aid of the March
of Dimes and Alex Napier,
promises to be a thrill packed
affair. With second place at
stake and playoff time drawing near, both teams will be
going all-out for the win.
As added attraction there will be
i grudge match between a couple of
illcged hockey teams representing
■adio stations CJOR and CKNW who
will meet in a return match to kill
A£ the survivors of a previous en-
:ounter. This should be a fun-packed
if fair and is for a good cause.
For the feature attraction a UBC
;iciory seems assured as the boys are
lining their top clip. The team will
3e at full strength and in top condition.
Don Adams will be between tho
pipes for the locals after a short layoff. Don has been sharp in practice
and will be after a shutout. The UBC
sand, cheer-leaders and majorettes
will be on hand to add color and
pulchritude to the festivities.
Game time is 8:30 for the feature
bul 7:00 for the opener. Tickets are
available at the office of the Graduate Manager or at the gate.
