Isherwood Blamed
For Frosh Defeat
In Victoria Debate
*   NEGLIGENCE of Foster Isherwood is responsible for
defeat of UBC in the Freshman Debate with Victoria
College held there Friday night, January 15.
Jim Wilson and Allan Ainsworth, the team sent from
UBC to debate with Victoria College, were defeated in a
close debate, of which the topic was "Resolved that the
United Nations do institute reprisals at the successful termination of the war."
Difference of opinion on the in« -—-«»--■»■_-—_-»■»■_■__»■__■■_,
terpretatlon of the word "reprisals"
placed our team at a distinct disadvantage. Sponsors of the Victoria College team sent two letters
to Foster Isherwood, president of
the Parliamentary Forum, requesting to clarify the word "reprisal*."
Jim Wilson stated today that Isherwood had apparently ignored the
letters from Victoria.
Dr. Anderson, chairman of the
judges judging the debate, commented that the debate had been
close and that it was unfortunate
that there was a difference in Interpreting the word "reprisals."
Wilson said that he would Uke it
particularly stressed that the hospitality that he and Allan Ainsworth received at Victoria waa of
the first order.

For Services
• COLLEGES throughout
the United States are actively co-operating in the
1943 Victory Book Campaign
to supply more and better
reading material to the men
in the armed services.
Plans are being made by col-
lego organizations to obtain a record-breaking collection of books,
(good books), from the students
and members of the various faculties. Each college book store
will act as the official campus collection centre.
Books    that    make    interesting
reading are in demand—preferably
books  in  reasonably  good  condition.   College   men   in   particular
are considered likely to own plenty
of books that would be very welcome   at   camps   and   naval   bases.
Tho   types  of  books   wanted  most
include   best   sellers   (both   fiction
and  non-fiction), recently published    textbooks,    stories    of    action,
humorous   books,   and   small   reprints of popular titles.   No mention is made of any other type of
literature that is popular with Col-
lego men.

• TORONTO — (CUP)—
Three Canadian universities have dismissed women
with unsatisfactory scholastic records from classes this
term.
Although the question was not
discussed specifically at the Universities conference in Ottawa last
week, one official stated that the
delegates agreed on the interpretation of existing regulations which
do not descrimlnate between men
and women students.
Queen's University announced
last term that thirty-four women
were asked to leave following publication of examination results. An
undisclosed number of women
have been weeded out of McMas-
ter University, the ChanceUor announced recently. No action has
yet been taken at Western University, pending exam results, but
President Fox has announced that
no discrimination wiU be made between sexes.
At Toronto no decision has been
reached regarding co-ed failures,
although the question is to be discussed at the forthcoming senate
meeting, according to a statement
from the registrar's office.
Toronto men who failed their
Christmas examinations have had
their names submitted to the War
Service Board, but have not yet
been asked to leave the University. The registrar announced earlier this week that as government
conscription of women is improbable, women students will be dealt
with in the same manner as the
men except in flagrant cases,
which will be left to the discretion
of  university authorities.
Pictured above in an informal pose are
four of the twelve hula chorines who will

at the third annual Red Cross Ball on January 23, at the Commodore.    The dancing

Closed
• IN ANSWER to queries
regarding the locked Art
Room in the Library, Dr.
Lamb explained that the
Arts Room became a loung-
ing-room for the Faculty
when they gave up the Faculty Room (now the Periodical Room) for student
use.
It is a haven for the Faculty Into
which students were permitted. A
number of books, storsd there because of the shortage of space in
the Library, have been missing
since the Christmas holidays. The
disappearance of the bcoks, presumably caused by thc students,
has led Dr. Lamb to exclude students from the room for the tinw
being. He expressed hopes that
the room may soon be re-opened.

Of Ball
• A PREVIEW of the Ball
will be the event of
Thursday, January 21, at
noon.
The entire theme wlU be Hawaiian, and the hula chorus will
perform the dance which is to be
featured, the following evening,
at the Red Cross Ball.
There wiU be several "surprises"
for the audience, and those who
have bought raffle tickets are advised to have them on hand.
Audrey Stormont wlU model the
fur coat which is to be raffled off
at the Ball.
A highlight of the affair wiU occur when each of the co-eds who
are running for election as Queen
of the Ball, will be Introduced to
the audience. The frocks worn by
the nominees will be commented
upon by Doreen Dugan.
Phil Nimmons and his orchestra
will provide the music, and Russ
Palmer, who will be remembered
from Varsity pep meets of former
years, is to be the Master of Ceremonies.
The price ot admission wlU be
ten cents, and the proceeds will be
donated to the Red Cross. Students are asked to have the correct
change ready to facilitate admission taking.
50 Per Cent
AV. Needed
To Remain
• UBC students must attain a 50 per cent, average in their courses if they
wish to continue, according
to Dean Daniel Buchanan,
just back from the National
Conference of Canadian Universities.
"There are to be no conditioned
students," stated the Dean.
All Arts courses are to continue,
he said. Special consideration
will be given to students following
the Education course.
The widely pubUclzed "ruthless
reduction" resolution of Dr. Sidney Smith, head of the Ottawa
conference, was accepted unanimously by 23 Canadian university
representatives.
Dean Buchanan's first step at
Varsity Monday was to confer with
President L. S. Kninck an the other deans. The meeting took place
at 10:30 in the morning and results
are not  yet  known.
. . . Students
Museum Specimens
Gain Extra Space
•    CROWDED SHOW-CASES in the museum-room over
in the library are  to be  relieved of many specimens
by the addition of drawers to both the wall and floor cases.
Eusy carpenters have been res- -____---_-__-_-»_---__•-___—-
ponsible the past two weeks for'
the strange noises, heaps of dust
and chaff, and pungent whiffs of
varnish throughout the library.
With the extra space, Dr. Cowan
plans to use some of the cases for
varied exhibits from time to time.
Student assistants, who open the
museum daily at the times specified on its door are cataloguing
the collection according to present
needs.
To apply the new catalogue numbers to the articles of this etno-
graphical collection, one assistant
found herself right In the wall-
case, waving a pen of wldte Ink,
and keeping her balance. "Just another specimen," she laughingly
told the visitor.
Barbirolli Unable
To Address Varsity
• JOHN BARBIROLLI, renowned orchestra conductor wlU not
address music lovers of UBC as
was scheduled. He finds that he
has too much work lined up to
take any time off. However, if he
can catch up, he wiU be very
pleased to come out.
For the last five years this brilliant conductor has been In charge
of the New York Philharmonic
Orchestra In succession to Tos-
canini. He has many committments in the United States, and
could only procure a short leav*
of absence.
Ex'Students
Returned
For Pep Meet
• AIMIABLE AL DEAN,
erstwhile Varsity cheerleader and present lieutenant in the Army, returned to
the eampus on Friday to the
basketball pep meet and led
a few impromptu cheers.
The meet featured a quiz between
members of thc basketball squad,
who were introduced at the beginning of the program.
The freshmen, Gordie Sykes, Art
Stillwell, Ole Bakken, Sandy Robertson, and Paddy Wescott made
up one team, the Golds, and were
beaten 16-10 by the other group,
tho Blues, comprising Art Barton,
Art Johnson, Bruce Yorke, Harry
Franklin and Dave Hayward.
Music for the meet was provided by Phil Nimmons and his hot
band ,the "Swinging Six." Jean
Folkard also returned to the Campus to vocalize with the orchestra.
Thespians Select
"Hay Fever"
• NOEL'     COWARD'S
brilliant   comedy   "Hay
Fever", has been selected by
the Players' Club for their
annual spring production
this year.
After three years of costume
plays, the executive finally decided to put on something modern,
and this sparkling, racy, modern
farce resu'.U'd.
Tryouts will probably be held
this Friday, with rehearsals commencing immediately after the cast
has been chosen.
Corsages At Ball
• HUGH RITCHIE announced
today that corsages will definitely be permitted at the Red Cross
Ball. He also revealed that 50
orchids, donated through the courtesy of Mrs. Houghton, will be
raffled off, proceeds to go to the
Red Cross.
All person who are having pre-
dance parties are requested to givo
their names and number of persons in their party to Ron McBride
(Phi Delt table) or Rod Lindsay
(Fiji table) before Thursday at
4.90.
Red Cross To Receive
Lost And Found Articles
• THE LOST AND FOUND has hit a snag. Plenty of
things are lost and nearly all of them are* found. A
number of found articles are turned into the lost and found
but very ew are ever claimed by their owners. So a pile
of thisa and thata has been accumulating in the lost and
found desk in the AMS office, while the owners run about
the campus calling the undergraduate body in general a
bunch of thieves.
At present the collection in the
AMS office rivals that of the University museum, and it is much
more varied, representing a curious cross section of co-ed apparel
and male possessions. Stuffed into one drawer are a mess of mittens, gloves and woolen muffs. In
another drawer are two pipes, a
slide-rule (found in front of the
Science building), a batch of keys
and key cases, a lighter, and several fat wallets.
Pens and pencils are all gathered
In a drawer waiting for some
lucky person to claim them. One
shelf houses a pair of sUghtly
soiled white shoes, a pair of leaky
galoshes, a knitting bag (perfectly
harmless), several clean handker
chiefs, two pairs of glasses, and the
sum of $3.00 found on the cafe
floor,. A gas ration booklet turned in recently was snapped up
within a few hours of its arrival
in the lost and found.
The main lounge of the Brock
tops the list of where the lost articles are found with the Cafeteria
running a close second.
The AMS office is always troubled with some person turning In a
pair of smeUy socks, which are
promptly disposed of—not washed.
Unless the articles now In the lost
and found are claimed soon, they
will be turned over to the Red

Education For All
Self-appointed critics of the university
student in war-time have been answered
by the recent decisions reached by the Selective Service Board, who have said, in effect, that the student who is doing satisfactory work, is more valuable to the country
taking his training in University than he
would be in the armed services. The National Selective Service Board was set up to
handle just such questions as these, and
their decision should be sufficient approval
to warrant the continuance of universities
in the present set-up.
One criticism which is not answered by
the regulations is the question of the privilege conferred on those who can affold to
attend university. "Why" ask sojne M»Hmfld
one person, whose parents can a#qrd to pay
for a University education be a|ltrwed 4o
carry on, while other students, whose parents are unable to pay these expenses, are
drafted into service."
This argument is not a fair criticism of
the students in university, nor ls it fair to
blame the universities themselves for the
situation. Every university is - waging a
continual campaign to create bursaries and
scholarships to aid those who are exceptional students, but who have no finances, to
come to college.
As to the present day university student, ha is not, as many people jeeni to
think, the favored child of the idle rich. Hare
at UBC a great many of the undergrads are
young men and women who have to finance
their own education. They are forced to
work a year and come to school for the next,
thus doubling the time it takes to get
through, and it means hard work, careful
saving, and, to put it bluntly—a hell of a
lot of guts, guts that many of their critics
lack completely.
There can be ijo criticism of these people. As to the others: two years ago a poll
on the campus revealed that over 80 per
cent, of the students earned all, or part, of
their fees, by holiday work. The greater
majority undoubtedly earn part of the annual cost of gaining a higher education. It
is a high percentage and its should prove
conclusively that the students here are people who are quite willing to work to get the
education that some people brand a privilege.
The fact that they have been aided by
their parents is certainly not unusual nor
unexpected. Parents who are willing to
make sacrifices so that their children will
be better educated, are a credit to the country. In many cases the parents are trying
to give their children something that they
were unable to obtain, and it is a natural
phenomena to see parents doing this, even
parents who have no child at university
Nevertheless we do have to face the fact
that many young men and women are unable to attend University because they can-
(ftpt affqrd 7$ go .antf <be<$ayse they are, .for
Various reasons, unjble to work their way
through. Have they not a democratic right
tp,an'education? >
$fe do flQtbelieve $tat,aid f6r s^udaftts
should be confined to the brilliant and the
promising students only. Under the present condltioruTit is neoessary to do this.
Still, average students should be given the
opportunity to obtain an education too. After all the world is largely composed of average people and its future depend? on them.
The idea of general education ls comparatively recent, and in the democratic
countries great strides have been taken to
provide it. In Canada there are high schools
and public schools, which are, open to All.
There are night schools and correspondence
courses and practically everyone has an opportunity to gain an education. It is in
many cases -far too difficult, however, for
the youth to get an advanced education.
It is part of the logical evolution of our
ideas of education, to see to it that our
colleges of the future will be open to everyone who can complete the entrance requirements and who wishes to enter a university.
It is only fair everyone should be given, as
nearly as possible, "equal opportunity" to
equip themselves for a place in life.
It might be argued that many people
would not want to carry on and go to university. That, of course, would be up to
them, compulsory education ends before university age is reached, the thing that matters is that they would not be prevented
from obtaining their education if they should
want it.
It is anything that, should be brought
about after the present war is over, in fact,
it should be made one of the essential planks
of any plan for post-war reconstruction.

By ED BROWN
•   LAST WEDNESDAY evening I had the
pleasure of being a guest at the home of
Helen Manning to hear Mr. L. J. Koerner
speak on Central Europe to the IRC.
Mr. Koerner gave an outline of the Aus-
tro-Hungarian Empire as it existed previous
to 1914 and its subsequent dissolution into
several independent states.
RECONSTRUCTION
The political failings and the economic
drawbacks of the post—war arrangement of
Central Europe were pointed out by Mr.
Koerner. He suggested that not a division,
but rather a federation of states would be a
more desirable condition.
In post-war reconstruction, the establishment of boundaries will again confront
the United Nations. This time we are preparing to go further than establishing borders. No one is quite clear on just what
we are preparing to do. This circumstance
is causing a good deal of confusion.
Certainly I am not prepared or sufficiently brave to advance a plan for a design of
future political and economical world structure. Yet this question should be considered by all of us. Any one with an idea for
any aspect of the future reconstruction
which he feels is sound, should advance it.
CRITERION NECESSARY
Just how to determine whether or not
an idea for reconstruction is sound is the
real core of the whole matter. We need a
standard, a measuring stick, a definition of
what reconstruction should be.
A plan for post-war reconstruction must
take fully into account fundamental principles of human behaviour. This may perhaps serve as a measuring stick. Obviously
any idea for a future World Order which
goes against human characteristics will meet
with immediate and lasting opposition.
SOCIALISM
A hot issue today is what degree of Socialism are we going to adopt after the war.
Most people seem agreed that we must have
more social legislation. The disagreement
comes when we ask how much more.
Certainly it would seem that elimination of personal gain in enterprise would be
a violation of a fundamental principle of
human behaviour.
Few men have ever undertaken anything unless the element of personal gain
was present. Every mind, factory or retailing establishment that we have today was
initiated for personal gain. Had the element
of personal gain not been present, the business would never have been started. And
if it had, the elemental driving force to carry
it on would have been lacking.
ABNORMAL CONDTION
At this point, socialistically minded
gentlemen are probably saying "Here we
have him." They would like to point out
that mines and perhaps even factories which
governments are operating today as a result of the war are working satisfactorily. I
would like to point out that war is an abnormal condition and the circumstances
existing in wartime cannot reasonably be
used as a basis for peacetime economy.

With Malice
Aforethought
By PETER REMNANT
• LAST FRIDAY'S Ubyssey carried the indignant letter of one
John Evlinson, a Scienceman ir.
the first stage of his evolution, who
was greatly aroused at the sugges.
tion that the expenses of a basketball team to Victoria should be
paid. I don't think Mr. Evlinson
has tried putting himself in the
place of a member of the team.
After all, the team was sent to
Victoria, representing the University, and with the natural understanding that its expenses would
be paid. Maybe Mr. Evlinson
would prefer that all organizations
on the campus should finance
themselves out of their own pockets, rather than out of the funds
collected for that express purpose.
In addition to discussing the contents of this letter, it is interesting
to speculate on the true name of
the author, for of course John Evlinson is a wholly fictitious character. My guess is that it was
written by one Arvid Backman,
another fictitious character, And,
after all, it was Mr. Backman who,
with what might easily have been
a touch of creative pride, pointed
out the lofty nature of the writing.

Canadian Co-eds
Take War Training
By HARRIET L^IGH-MALLORY
• WOMEN'S WAR TRAINING has become compulsory
on the majority of the Canadian Campuses for the first
time this year. However, since the outbreak of the war,
women on all Campuses have been actively engaged in voluntary war work of various types.
A mass meeting was held last spring by the women
at the University of British Columbia, and the co-eds asked
for compulsory war training which has been instituted there
this year. However, at Manitoba, training has been compulsory for two years.
COMPULSORY 	
Training is required of all women at McGill, Queen's, British
Columbia and Alberta, while at
Toronto it is required of those in
second, third and fourth years, and
at McMaster, only those in the first
and second years. The number of
hours required varies from 60 to
110, or from two to four hours a
week.
In the first year, basic training is
given. This consists of a combination of first aid, AJt.P. and either
drill or physical training. In the
second year a wide variety of different courses are offered on each
Campus. In this more advanced
training the student may specialize
in the field in which she is most
Interested.
Hiere are six University Detachments of the Canadian Red Cross
Corps at present. These are at
Toronto, McMaster, Queen's MOGUL McDonald College, and the
University of New Brunswick.
Toronto was the pioneer in this
field, and the Detachment there
has been in operation for three
years. The latest to be formed is
that at U.N 3.
Courses in House Nursing, Motor
Mechanics, St. John's Ambulance,
Red Cross Sewing, Emergency
Feeding, Office Administration, are
available on almost all the Campuses as well as those basic
courses already mentioned.
TORONTO
At Toronto the newest course is
one in Community Needs and Resources, in which the lectures are
supplemented by films and field
trips which Include visits to vicinity
council, the juvenile court and the
University Settlement. Other riew
courses this year at Toronto include Civic Day Nurseries (theory
and practice), Nursing Aids (demonstrations and practical work
in hospitals), and Recreational
Leadership.
At Saskatchewan the girls have
an opportunity to choose from five
classes Including typing and filing, precision instruments and blueprints, and radio mechanics as well
as other courses.
U.B.C.
At U.B.C. map reading and drafting, if taken after the motor mechanics course, gives the student
tho rating of a third class army
driver.
On completion of the course in

Dear Miss Slopjaw:
I am a desperate woman. I am

right across the table from me
there is a she-viper who is swiping from me right under my nose
the guy I've been trailing for five
days in hopes of getting an invito
to the Science Ball from. While I
am silting here masticating my
nail polish and thinking up a nice
little hatchet-murder she is asking
him "How do you ever manage to
work a slide-rule, I think you're
just terribly marvelous I mean
really I do!" and the big lout is
just soaking it up, I am a desper-
i.to woman. Miss S., what would
you suggest, short of mayhem, or
to ne to think of it how do you clci
mayhem?   I'm waiting for the "lil1

Dear Distracted Co-ed:
You might try crawling under
the table, barking like a dog, and
chewing her ankles, with the faint
hope that she will depart to fix
the run in her last pair of Nylons
At any rate, better her ankles
than your own fingernails. Or you
might tell her there's a call for
her in the telephone booth downstairs and then lock her in. She
could pass the time by reading
the handwriting and looking over
the pictures on the wall (memo:
must visit there again and try that
telephone number on tho wall, tho
one with the emphatic personal
endorsement, underneath the limerick about MacTavish and the
ape.) You could also try sitting
behind them and flicking spitbolls
surreptitiously at the napes of
their necks.   It won't get you an
invite but hell, what fun!

Saboteur
J. Carson Fiddles
As DuMoulin Burns
By CON FLAGRASHUN
•   LAST FRIDAY afternoon in the Caf one of the University's most heinous crimes was enacted.
Miss Anne (Players' Cluh) Du Moulan was the victim
of an unpremeditated attack on her person, to wit, her hair.
The criminal has been apprehended, however, and the WUS
is meeting in the near future to decide on a suitable punishment for the culprit, none other than John "Arson" Canon.
The reaction of "Nero" Canon
was extremely intriguing. He informed interested parties that he
had just been sitting in the Caf
lighting his pipe when he saw
Anne's hair, just a few scant inches
away from the lighted match in
his hand, an uncontrollable urge
seized him and — poof. Moulan
was a human torch.
RUNS AMUCK
What caused the usually sedate
"Honest" John to run amuck? Why
was the head of the Discipline
Committee unable to master this
strange urge? The UBYSSEY, in
the interests of Psychology, contacted Carson and questioned him
on his reactions at the time of the
"Cremation of DuMoulan". The
results were submitted to Skeezix
Fraynia, well-known psychologist
(room 12 Essondale) for interpretation. The questions, with Carson's answers follow:
Q: As a small boy were you eve?
prevented from lighting fires?
A: Yes,
Q: Are you any relation of Mrs.
0*Leary of Chicago?
A: I doubt it.
Q: Did you ever have a strange
desire to light fires in your bedroom?
A: Yes.
Mr. Fraynia announced, after
studying the questions for a short
time, that it was his considered
opinion that this was a clear case
of frustration.
"Freudian frustration?" asked •
reporter.
"I would not care to commit
myself on such a point" said the
noted psychologist, as he picked
up a wax apple and proceeded to
eat it.
'It would appear" continued the
learned man, who was now wriggling out of his straight jacket, "that
Carson is suffering from the days
when he was unable to light fires
at will. Now that he is allowed
to carry matches for the apparent
purpose of lighting a pipe, he has
taken this form of expression for
the release of the emotion built
up by his old desire. I detect a
tie-up with his days as leader of
the Camp Fire girls."
At this point two nice men came
up and took Skeezix away, after
handing him a Napoleon hat.
UNHARMED
Miss Du Moulan Interviewed by
representatives of The UBYS&EY
stated that her hair was unharmed.
"It is just as beautiful as ever"
she answered in a sultry voice.
It is not expected that Miss Du
Moulan's stage career will suffer,
and it is highly unlikely that she
will take any action against tho
alleged culprit.
A bystander, who witnessed tho
whole show, told the press "Chee,
I thought the Judgement Day had
come.   Boy! was she boined up!"

UBC Scribe Gives Account Of Cancelled McKechnie Game
By BILL WELSFORD
• THE ANNUAL McKECHNIE
Cup game was called off about
one minute before the game was
scheduled to start. The reason for
this unprecedented action was credited to the extreme hardness of
the ground. It was so hard that
when Ranjl Mattu kicked It a good
hard wallop, he couldn't even dent
lt—in fact, the molecules just simply refused to be separated.
SITUATION NOW
The situation as it stands now is
that Victoria plays Vancouver this
Saturday and Varsity the following week-end in Vancouver. If
Victoria wins both games, then
they will have won the Cup, and
this game which has just been cancelled will not be necessary to be
replayed.
If Victoria loses one these games
then the Varsity fifteen must travel over to the Island again.
OUTSTANDING EVENTS
From here on, we shall discuss
the trip and any oddities that occurred.
The boys began to drift onto the
boat from about 10:00 p.m.    on.
Many of them went straight' to
bed, while others horsed around
until the boat left. Johnny Nlc-
holls, Varsity's only rooter, and I
took a walk around the deck about
11:15 p.m., but seeing nothing
worth while wasting out time on
—or in other words nothing
—decided to hit the hay.
Around about 3:00 a.m., the boat
suddenly met the Victoria weatherman; shortly after the room became a veritable refrigerator; so
we both bot up to put our teeth
back in so we could stop our gums
from rubbing away.
Shortly after the boat docked,
about 8:30 a.m., we decided to venture up to the Empress Hotel
where the rugby team was staying.
6CRUM GOOD
After a big shove from the
scrum, we pushed through the icy
blast onto the dock. Thereupon,
we met the seagull (that you follow to Victoria) frozen stiff.
Up in the Hotel room, the boys
decided to disperse for breakfast-
some returned to play cards; three
of the fellows, Al Nored, Bill
Clarke, Al Jones   went   to   their
homes; Hunt Wood and Don Ralston took a trip to Oak Bay—probably to dish out a few passes—and
you know the kind I mean.
The boys became united again in
the room after lunch to receive a
pep talk from Coach Maury McPhee.
MAURY INSPIRES
As Maury started to inspire the
boys and get their fighting C.O.T.
C. spirit up, the wind blew so
hard that all hearts skipped twenty
beats and the Coach had to start
all over again.
About 2:00 p.m., Mother McPhee
picked up his brood and when
Chick Clarke finally arrived after
some delay—which reminds me, I
must ask him what she's like—the
bus coughed away to the field.
Enroute, we picked up Sailor
Sammy Caras, and former star of
last year's Thunderbird fifteen,
Bud Speirs, who was on his way to
play against his Alma Mammy
with Victoria.
At McDonald Field, the Ruggers
hurried into the building, but
hastily made a retreat, thinking we
had  trespassed  on  to  a  Swift's
freezing plant.
GOOD DEFENSE
After a stony plance from the
Victoria Chamber of Commerce,
the team realized that in Interest
of their own defense the coldness
would be better than the bleakness
of a Victoria criminal's free-paying guest house.
So while some of the boys were
changing from civilization Into the
garb which legalizes nothing more
than prehistoric man's brutal desire to bash each others brains out,
others were making the usual auspicious check of the ground.
We, in the dressing room, were
startled by the stampede of a horrified mob led by Ranjl Mattu. A
conference was called to discuss
the advisability of playing the
game.
"ROXY" ROXBOROUGH
While parties concerned were
debating the issue, your reporter
.had a chance to talk with Flt.-
Lieut. "Roxy" Roxborougb, now
stationed with the Western Air
Command, who talked of lays of
yore.
We discussed such names as
Steve Covernton, Al Gillespie,
"Daisy" Grelg, Drew Clarke, and
many others who have tasted the
dust of McDonald Field. When
asked to give his opinion as to
whether the game should be cancelled, he replied, "Well, I've played on ground just as hard—". From
this we gathered that he was in
favor of the game being played.
This remark brought about comment from his cronies and former
players, which left the Issue with
supporters on both sides.
However, the students were
quite rightly justified in their decision—the game should be cancelled.
WOOD CAN ADD
There was too much at stake to
risk and serious injuries. Hunter
Wood's statement sums the situation neatly, "I'm too near graduation to afford a two month's holiday."
Tho Victoria team, composed
mostly of men in the armed forces,
were quite willing to play the
match. But, the government removes any financial worries for In
juries received, and they have
more than three months to realize
their ambition—our team hasn't.
The team returned regretfully to
the hotel, their only exercise being
that gained in walking from conference to conference with the officials.
The rest of the afternoon was
spent in a do-what-you-darn-well-
feel-like style. Most of the team
went over to the Crystal Gardens
to swim.
GOOD EVENING
After supper, everyone strangely disappeared, and I guess it will
forever remain a secret as to where
they went.
However, they all returned
around about 11:00 p.m., to display
their loot for the evening. Besides
several empty coke bottles—or they
could have been ginger ale bottles—the only noteworthy piece of
material was a bright red slip
proudly displayed by Hunter Wood.
Ah! these rugger boys.
At 11:30 p.m., we went en masse
to the boat, where we settled down
to a bit of serious work—sleep, after having spent a most enjoyable
week-end.

Wednesday, came back fighting in the best Varsity tradition
at V.A.C. Saturday night, to trounce Lauries 47-31 in one
of the roughest brawls of the season. This win boosted our
heroes into a second place tie with Lauries, just a game back
of the first-place Shores outfit.

count.
right up'to the last game of the
season. Shores and Varsity, who
are now generally regarded as the
pick of the five league teams, face
each other in' the final game of
the season approximately a month
from now.
During the interval between then
and now, 4he two clubs play three
games each and there is little likelihood that the present one-game
difference between thorn in tho
standings will be changed as a
result of the outcome of their respective games. Shores play
Lauries and Stacys in tvo of their
engagements while Va'sity takes
on Stacys twice in two of their
con'e. 1 '■■
Both the Jewellers and the'BircU;
should triumph since neither chih
has lost any games yet to their
respective opponents. The third
game for both Shores and UBC
will be against Wally Mayers'
R.C.A.F. team. Since the games
are just four days apart, the outcome of both should be the same.
If RC.A.F. lose, then Varsity will
be out to beat Shores in the final
game of the season when they
play the Jewellers. If, however,
the Airmen win, then Varsity will
probably come out of their final
game, either tied with Shores for
first place or in third place behind
a first-place Shores team and a
second-place R.C.A.F. outfit.
IMPRESSIVE
In their game with Lauries Saturday night, our boys looked very
impressive. Down five points at
the first quarter, they came back
strong to out-score the pie-men
in the following cantos, progressively 14-12, 10-3, and 20-8. Sandy
Robertson was the big noise for
the Thunderbirds with sixteen of
the best while the rejuvenated
"Lefty" Barton garnered ten, close
ly   followed   by   Paddy   Wescott
with nine.
In the second quarter, Varsity
threw their first string of Sandy
Robertson, Art Johnson, Harry
Franklin, Art Barton and Gordie
Sykes. These five remained for
the rest of the game with the exception of one substitution (Wescott for Bakken for Sykes) and
showed their worth by ringing in
double the points amassed by their
opponents V46 to 23).
TALENT
Coach Van Vliet, at present, has
one problem which his colleagues
around the intercity circuit would
(.'.ive thrir eye-teeth to he bothered
with. Thc ailment worrying Varsity's mentor is an over-abundanco
of talent. Sandy Robertson and
Art Barton, on the basis of their
recent performances, nr_> definitely
starting material, but there, the
manpower problem situation be •
gins. There are four good guards
on thc team of almost exactly
equal calibre. Including starter
Sandy Robertson, Varsity has three
pivot-men 1o choose from, Ollb
Bakken, Gordie Sykes, and Robertson . Of these, Ollie Bakken is
the only one who sticks strictly
to the duties of a centre-man
Sykes and Robertson see action as
centre and left-forward both. All
this means that Varsity has, to
pick a starting team from, any two
of four guards, any one of three
centres, and any two of four forwards.

Intera's Pred
For Playoffs
• NOW ALMOST AT the
close of their league schedule, the Varsity and Frosh
Inter A outfits are, at present, girding themselves with
new strength for a concerted playoff drive which they
hope will result in the Inter
A league crown being
brought back to the Campus.
The new strength which they
hope add to their respective ranks,
comes fro mthe Calder players attending University who were
forbidden to play ball for the latter team by the M.A.D. about three
months ago.
EX-CALDERS SIGN
The Varsity team is signing up
Pat Campbell and also hope to
procure thc services of Don Petrie.
Art Johnson, coach of the Frosh
also hopes to sign Petrie, and right
now, it is uncertain which team will
get him. The Frosh have Marty
Martin signed and he and possibly
Petrie, if Varsity fails to sign him,
will turn out for Frosh next week
when they take on Sparlings in a
prelim, to the senior game in Varsity gym.
Besides Campbell, and possibly
Petrie, Varsity has signed Ches
Pedersen, a Freshman towering 6'
5" into the atmosphere. Ches'
height has already benefited the
Varsity quintet, for in their last
contest Thursday night at King
Ed. gym, the students ran all over
a luckless Calder crew to the tune
of 42-17. As a conservative estimate, we would say that Pedersen
snagged 75 per cent, of the rebounds.
Next Thursday night, Varsity
play Higbies in their final game
of   the   season.     Although   they
The recent cold snap made the
pitch extremely hard and play was
considerably hampered throughout.
There was no score during the
first half of the game. The only
counter came halfway through the
last session when Frank Adams
booted home the ball to put the
'Birds out in front one goal to
nought.
FAREWELL APPEARANCE
The game on Saturday was a
farewell appearance for two of
their star players, Mel Oughton
and playing-manager oGrdie Johnson, who are leaving on Friday for
Gordon Hed.
These two men turned in creditable performances for themselves,
Mel in tho fullback slot and Gordie on the left wing.
This win for the 'Birds puts them
in possession of fourth spot in the
V and D League and the way the
team is playing now they are a
strong contender for the lead.
