Dave Williams
Files Papers
For President
Opening bell in the forthcoming fight for presidency of UBC
Student Council was sounded
Thursday when army veteran
Dave Williams became the first
candidate to throw his hat in
the ring.
Now a law student on the campus,
Williaaas donned the electioneering
gloves by presenting his nomination
papers to Bev Sheppard, Alma Mater
Society secretary.
BbHotting for the student presidency
and far the post of treasurer on council will be held February 4. Nominations for the two positions close January X.
At press time Thursday, Williams
was tbe sole candidate for any of the
Student Ouncil posts. After the presidential elections February 4, other
positions will be filled February 11
and 18.
Williaaas is a former President of
the Parliamentary Forum and twice
represented UBC in McGoun Cup debates with western Canadian universities.
He served in the artillery and is a
member of the campus Canadian
LegiotJ.
Legion To Air Policy
At General Meeting
Anonymous Letter Precipitotes
House-Cleaning" Decision
a
Because of an anonymous letter of criticism received by
the UBC Canadian Legion, the veterans' organization is to hold
a special "house cleaning" meeting January 20.
An   unsigned  letter  sent   to  Perry ^
Millar, president of the branch, com
plained that the authors, as ordinary
members, "did not know what was
going on in the Legion."     ,
Millar announced  immediately  the
calling of the special meeting which is
to undertake, he said "a critical examination of legion policy."
QUESTIONS
The anonymous letter asked how
much money the branch had received
and what had happened to it. It also
asked whether married veterans had
received special concessions and what
had been done by the branch to
promote the welfare of student veterans.
The writers demanded that a special
general meeting be called so that
officers of the branch "can answer
our questions factually from the platform."
ANSWERS
Millar commented that "some of
these questions would not have been
askei if the anonymous members had
regularly attended meetings. We feel,
however, that members have probably
not had sufficient opportunity to ask
questions, due to the pressure of
business."
The meeting will be held in Brock
Hall, January 30 at 7 p.m.
Student
Ousted
Coup d'Etat
London, Ont., Jan. 16—
(CUP)—With the present democratic practice in student administration all around them,
the student government of New
London Junior College have
formed, by virtue of a coup
d'etat, a tight-fisted dictatorship.
When, at a meeting last term, only
20 per cent of the students showed up
at a student government general meeting, the officers took over the entire
direction of student affairs.
Giving as their reason the indifference of the student body to their own
affairs, the officers voted to suspend
their constitution and place the direction under a small committee.
As their first official act, the new
administration ordered the closing of
the college dining room for between -
meal snacks.
As a result of the coup, there are
numerous movements among members
of the student body to restore democratic representation.
College authorities, without interference, are watching with interest
the dictatorial trend and the subsequent movements to re-establish a
representative administration
Two-To-One Majority Favors
Former Christmas Set-Up
UBC Sciencemen asked Thursday that the University revert
to formal Christmas examinations, a system dropped this term
in favor of "informal" class tests.
The full-fledged examination?	
system was favored by a two
to one majority of delegates to
the Engineers' Undergraduate
Society.
Engineers stated that the system
in effect this term has caused "much
inconvenience."
Many examinations continued
through to December 19, the Science-
men said, despite the fact that a
number of professors had said that
tests would end December 16.
The mix-up had caused many students to lose jobs they had planned to
take during Christmas holidays, they
claimed.
Short examinations do not show a
person's ability, while longer, formal
tests are instrumental in weeding
out weak students, delegates said.
Speaking against the resolution, the
president of first year Sciencemen
voiced the opinion that "formal exam-i
inations cause students to cram, and
induces much overexertion of the
mental faculties."

'Inept, Ill-advised Slander/
Screams Penner Editorial
Manitoban Editor Answers
UBC President's Reply
(Special to The Daily Ubyssey)
Winnipeg, Jan. 16—"Inept and ill-advised slander are the
methods UBC's Grant Livingstone has used in replying to the
charges laid by Roland Penner, editor of the Manitoban, University of Manitoba paper, the Manitoban said in an editorial
today.
ARTSMEN REPLACE ENGINEERS
BACKSTAGE IN PLAYERS CLUB
Engineers are suffering from hurt pride because the
backstage department of the Players Club is being run
mainly by Artsmen.
For years it has been the privilege of Sciencemen to
throw switches and pull levers, now it seems just one persevering "red shirt" is demonstrating his ability behind the
scenes.
Engineers are calling for volunteers to repair what they
call this "detriment to our character".
Noon Lectures Cancelled
For General AMS Meet
Cancellation of 11:30 lectures next Friday for a special
general meeting of the Alma Mater Society seems a certainty.
The meeting is to be held in tbe Armory.
Penner's charges, which have since
touched off a dispute between Livingstone and UBC Reds over the issue of
veterans' allowancas, were in part
"incorrect", Penner said in his editorial, owing to "a contusion of terms
on my part".
CORRECTION
"I wrote that he (Livingstone) opposed 'the demand for a cost-of-living
bonus for student veterans at the 1946
conference of the NCSV. This is incorrect. Livingstone orginally opposed
any campaign for a straight increase
in grants," the editorial said.
Although the editorial admitted that
"the actions of . . . Grant Livingstone
were not levelled in anger, malice,
or at the dictates of a 'party line' " it
added that "Livingstone used labels
instead of logical arguments."
RESULT
activity of its regional vice-president.
Mr. Livingstone," the Manitoban said.
"He cannot deny that the net effect
of the . . . (amendment) limiting IUS
expenditure ... is to prevent anyone
to be delegated to IUS on his own
merits but rather ensures that Mr.
Livingstone will be that delegate.
INNOCENCE
"Since Mr. Lyon (Manitoba Student
Union President), in all his innocence,
presented these amendments with
good intentions, one cannot but think
that while finding Mr. Livingstone
'impressive', Mr. Lyon showed himself
to be too impressionable and rather
too uncritical," tho student editor
said.
Regarding his own present position,
Penner said: "I apologize, but only
for my error in phraseology. I do not
apologize for having intimated that
Livingstone acted contrary to the interests of the vets by  his actions at
Student body approval of Canadian
affiliation with the International
Union of Students will be sought by
Bob Harwood, NFCUS president and
treasurer of the AMS.
Don Cunliffe, local chairman of
NFCUS, will read a report on that

season.

issue.

Union Supports
Campus Appeal
Appeal of University- of British
Columbia student broadcasters for
the right to present amateur musicians over downtown radio stations
without paying "standby" performers
went yesterday to Canadian headquarters of the American Federation
of Musicians.
E. A. Jamieson, .secretary-manager
of local 145, Vancouver, will back
UBC's request, Ernest Perrault, president of University Radio Society,
said Wednesday after a conference
with  him.
Perrault and Bob Harwood, president of the National Federation of
Canadian University Students, will
draw up a brief to the union today,
"asking special concessions for university musicians making cultural,
non-commercial  amateur broadcasts."

Artsmen Trample
Engineers In
Forum Debate
By LBS ARMOUR
UBC Engineers were almost
completely annihilated by Arts-
men's sharp tongues at Thursday's Parliamentary Forum debate.
A resolution "that Applied Science
graduate* are more valuable to society than Arts graduates" was defeated by a handsome majority.
The Artsmen pointed out that "you
cannot run s\ city without women" |
"And wha-c fathe- would allow his
daughter  to  run  kose  in  e  city  of
Engineers?" they asked.
Other Arts speakers attacked "the
useless accumulation of technological
data which clutters the Engineer's
brain."
The Artsman, not being burdened
with this clutter, is able to look at
life objectively and come to "sane"
conclusions,   they   declared.
"If a Scienceman had written 'Forever Amber' he would have had
only ten pages of data," they said.
Engineer's champion, "Prime Minister" Ron Grantham attempted to
dhow that society "could not function"  without  Science  graduates.
"If you were to select two sites,
put fifty Engineers in one and fifty
Artsmen in the other, and instruct
them to erect a city; which do you
think would be the most successful?"
he asked.

WHAT ABOUT IT!
It is interesting to note that the bible of
all Canadian businessmen, "The Financial
Post", has taken up the challenge to business
printed in the Daily Ubyssey of November 6
in a Post editorial entitled "Why They Move
South".
Main reasons advanced by the Post's
writer are better opportunity in the United
States, more pay, more chance for advancement, shorter hours and other advantages.
Contrary to refuting these arguments he takes
business to task for its failure to meet this
challenge.
"Nothing is gained by getting angry about
this matter; of accusing Uncle Sam of stealing
our youth or of telling the latter they should
be patriotic and stay at home. These people
are going to keep right on flocking across
the line until they are convinced that there
are at least equal opportunities for them in
Canada", says the writer.
'It's up to business, government and all
others interested in building a stronger Canada, to make sure that those opportunities
are provided."
That these opportunities do exist in
Canada, or can be made to exist in Canada
cannot be denied. The UBC Employment
Bureau is doing its utmost to find these positions.
The way now lies open for an employer
group of local or even nationwide scope to
organize on the same basis. What better way
to business success than to hire graduates
familiar with the locale in which the business
operates?
There it is, business. What about it?

CURTAIN GOING UP
Dave Williams grabbed the post position
Thursday morning in the 1948-49 AMS presidency race when he tossed his nominations
across the desk to become the first candidate
in wfcat is promising to be one of the most
spirited contests in recent years.
To date Williams' is the only nomination
submitted, but the ballots are open until
January 28. He will have to be cleared by
the Student Council eligibility committee and
by the administration before His candidature
is ratified.
Hie time is now ripe to point out that it
is the duty of every student to familiarize
himself with the candidates before he casts
his vote on February 4. If possible students
should attempt to meet the candidates personally, certainly all must read the campaign
statements and platforms attentively.
To allow the voters sufficient time to
study each contestant, we suggest to all potential candidates that they file their nominations soon. Dark horses that enter the race
in the closing days add excitement to elections
but are not in the interests of an intelligent
vote.

NOtT THE WHIP
MICHAEL
George Robertson's
Clover Hill was covered this week by a
screaming mass of humanity, all devoted to the selling of whips.
Whips need some selling. They're far too
ge«tfte, too refined for the average peasant.
They aren't proletarian enough. They aren't
brutal enough. And they take far too much
skill for mass consumption.
But clubs don't.
No, not gavels, they're too small. So are
baseball bats. The kind of club for general
use is a brute of a thing, with great dirty
spines on the end of it to tear the victim's
There's a lot of satis-
OF BLOOD faction in clubbing your
& GORE friends. There really is.
Take a friend, any
friend. Drag him into your private dungeon,
shove a drink into his fist, and then choose
your favorite club. Test its balance, making
sure it won't slide through your fingers when
you're swinging it around your head in the
windup. Sharpen the points. Grin. Then lay
into him.
With a whip you have to tie the victim.
Not with a club. The first blow, a one-handed
tap, knocks the glass out of his hand, possibly
smashing a few bones. Next, while he's still
too surprised to move, a vicious side-swipe
to his head not only knocks him unconscious,
but with a little luck takes his head off too.
Then, while he's lying at your feet, you
can club him for hours, methodically smashing
not only bruise and gash the poor idiots' flesh

It's   a   clear,   bright
moonlight night out on
the farm. The stars are

softly sighing through the hay. The frogs are
making frog noises. The world is at peace.
Under a haystack a boy and a girl are
sitting  quietly   drinking  in  the   atmosphere
flesh away by the chunk. That's it.
If you have an enemy, a real one, thaHs,
whose sight makes you retch and your stomach turn, the type of a low-down S.O.B. who
goes around pawing your women, don't give
him the whip, Jackson. Use a club.
A whip, after much diligent practice, will
cause a few welts across his back, it might
possibly rip some flesh from his rib.
But a club. Even without practice one
can swing a club. And one blow of a club,
the heavy type with spines on the end, will
not only bruise and gash the poor idiot's flesh
but it will break his ribs as well. Much better,
much.

when the whole effort is over, you can lean on
your club to survey the blood and corruption
at your feet. How can a whip compare?
Picture it: A dark, smelly moist room, lit
possibly by one flickering candle perched in a
Scotch bottle. Lying at your feet you view
in the half light the pulp of a former friend.
His head, situated several feet from his body,
resembles a cucumber that's been stepped on,
only instead of seeds squishing out it's a
beautiful mass of blood and brain, the blood
trickling across the floor and oozing out the
drain.
The body, totally unrecognizable as such,
is wreathed in a tasty design of intestines and
other organs. One arm is attached to the main
bulk, the other arm and both legs are not.
The hands are now grease spots.
How, I ask you, can a whip compare?

LETTER
TO THE EDITOR
Reds and Stuff
Dear Sir:
Recent   issues   of   the   Ubyssey
have    carried    many    misleading
statements made by our very appropriately self styled 'red windmills.' The loose use of such a term
as 'witch hunt' does not say much
for the intelligence or knowledge
of those who use it in this case.
Perhaps materialistic psuedo-in-
tellectuals had better stick to more
concrete   metaphors    like    windmills. If you look for a red windmill and find one, it is difficult
to see where the ephemeral quality of a witch comes in. It does of
course give some, a nice phrase to
parrot.   Petrillo   seems   to   have
succeeded in keeping only music
off  records.   And  talking  of  recordings, Mr. Martin gives a repeat performance.   Two years ago
the LPP elected a party slate to
the SPC.   No one could deny thi.s
at  the  time  and  even   the   past
president confirmed tbe fact publicly.   A year later when he hoped
that most of the students had forgotten, Mr. Martin came out and
denied it. Two years ago the LPP
tried   the   same   trick   with   the
Legion  executive  but   failed   because their plan aroused such indignation that every member turned out to make sure that the dictatorship of THAT proletariat did
not    take    over    the    University
branch.     Mr.   Martin   feels   that
public memory has forgotten and
that  a  denial  of  this  too  is due
and   may   even   be   believed   by
some.
The most misleading falsehood,
for those who are unaware of the
actual details, is his basic assumption that the Legion is an organization for all veterans (including
communists). He knows that this
is a lie but puts it out for those
gullible enough to believe him.
The members who form any
group must share certain beliefs
if they are to succeed in their
aims. All organization rests on this
basis. Section II, article 2 of the
Legion bylaws states:
"No avowed anarchist, Communist or other person who advocates the destruction of organized
government in Canada by force
shall be permitted to become or
remain a member." Mr. Martin
and other red windmills are well
aware of this. Can any of you
imagine a Liberal or Conservative
joining the communist party with
any other aim than that of wrecking it? Nor have the communists
perjured themselves and perjury
is the correct word for those who
took the Legion oath—for any
other purpose. Their tactics the
world over are the same. If they
cannot take over an organization,
they attempt to discredit it and
slander its elected leaders.
For a group of thirteen, I think
that all students will agree that
they are getting more space in the
Ubyssey that their numbers warrant.

ON THE QUAD . . .
Interview With 'L'il Ruth'
'Delightful/ Says Writer
By HOWIE DAY
Now I lay me down to sleep—that's a joke, »mob, that is,
after taking li'l Ruthie's picture; and it's all on me, too, so's you
can ali laugh. Jack Law, the photographer, is still wandering
around with a dazed look on his lens and I'm still wandering
around period. Honest, Mr. Editor, it was an absolutely (delightful) accident that "Ruthie" happened to be "on the quad".
You see, all ye who wonder, the$> :	
purpose of this little jag each Friday
il going to be to introduce "just
people" on the campus, on the quad,
and on the ball. I can tell the latter
by that certain look. At least, I didn't
have any doubts about Ruthie. So
since we're on to everything, I'd better
jet on to the story.
Ruth is a native of Vancouver. I got
that information without so much as
a cuppa-coffee, so there y'are fellas,
She's aoi only cooperative but is also
economical. Ruth has grown two
whole years sweeter than sixteen and
it present is not in love. What's more,
die thinks love happens "with the
map of two fingers".
WOM WORRIES'
I may as well remind you lads that
her phone number is in the student
directory because I couldn't even get
9wr to snap her fingers at me. When
I aaked what Ruthie's father did, she
replied, "Hs's retired (I think she
mont lie gave up) and Mom just
just worries about me."
The most exciting thing (now hold
twar breath) that Ruthie ever did was
eight relative to university function.
Last fall, she went cheer-leading with
*!» ft-ba' team to Salem, Oregon.
I ihoalda, I shoulda turned out.
THE PARTY LINE
by Porxivol Coops
Writer Lashes At Red Methods
ED. NOTE: Published below is
the first in a planned series of
student-submitted articles which
shall become a permanent feature
of the Friday edition of The Dally
Ubyssey.
Someone at a recent meeting
of the Socialist Club made the
untrue remark that recent de-
elopments in Europe showed that
socialists and communists could
co-operate successfully.
The great east-west struggle in
Europe is not between «mM»|—
and capitalism, but between communism and socialism.
The majority of western European countries have neither socialist governments or coalitions including socialists.
These countries all take an ac
tive part in combatting communist
aggression. In eastern Europe socialists are either forced in communist-dominated coalitions, or
they must face extinction. Yet,
also in these countries, socialists
are struggling to pull their governments out of communist domination and in some cases, as in
Czechoslovakia and in Finland they
have had considerable success.
Everywhere in Europe where
socialists can speak freely they
have denounced communism in no
uncertain terms. The stand taken
by the socialist majority at a recent CCL convention shows that
Canadian socialists are also giving
great attention to the danger of
communism.
Another   great  factor  confusing
the Issue lies in the fact that the
capitalist press is associating social-
Ism with communism in an effort
to discredit social democracy In
the eyes of the Canadian people.
It is little use for socialists to
try to change the attitude of the
capitalist press but socialists must
convince the people of Canada that
social democracy is absolutely opposed to communism or any other
movement which rejects or attempts to corrupt the democratic
institutions of our country.
Socialists are fighting to increase
the democratic control by the people . of Canada over their own
country and its resources and recognize the right of the people to
elect their representatives free of
coercion.
Capitalist Interests are at a greet
and unfair advantage by controlling practically all of the Canadian
press.
For that reason they have succeeded so far in discrediting social
democracy in the eyes of the Canadian people to such an extent that
considerable support from people
desiring social changes which
would otherwise have gone to the
socialists, is still being given to
the old line parties defending capitalist interests.
If socialists fail to convince the
people that they reject communism
and totalitarian rule as much as
anyone,   socialism   will   have   no
success in Canada.
JiOT LIQUID
Ruth aays that the university lacks
spirits at their games. I asked 'er
abou' Bellingham. "I mean spirit", she
laid, stamping her foot. I shed, "sho
9M I".
Above all, Ruth is an optimist. She\
thinks the world is tending toward
the better, but war is inevitable.
Sathie said that isn't any more con-
teed than the big shots make it
sotoid,
How could I disagree with Ruthie
except when she went all starry-eyed
About the "new look" and said she
wasn't anxious for marriage for five or
six years. At that point I couldn't
see where things were getting any
Uwtter.
Well, Ruthie was an awful nice

RUGGER STAR—Hartt Crosby, seen here in last week's Stadium exhibition, will be in action
in tomorrow's rugger tilt. Other 'Birds in the picture include Barrie Morris, Dougie Reid, Scott
Kerr and Keith McDonald. They'll all be in strip for the weekend classic.
Rugger learn Confident
Of Victoria Invasion
Thunderbird rugby invincibility will be on demonstration tomorrow afternoon when the
Blue and Gold rugger stars invade the home field of the Victoria Crimson Tide. The first game
of a rigorous schedule which has the UBCites slated to meet California, Vancouver, and the
Australian Wallabies, will see the student fifteen rated as slight favorites.
McDonald Park, long the centre off-
Island ragby activity, will play host
to the Point Grey team. A large
crowd, including many student fans
who are accompanying the team, is
expected to witness the annual classic.
It will be the only 'Bird game to be
played in the Capital this season.
POWERFUL THREES
The Thunderbird backfield, the nucleus of which is the Miller Cup winning Varsity squad, is well balanced
Big, reliable Bill Dunbar will be
taking ewe oi the all important full
back dot
Popular grid players Don Nesbitt
and Doujie Reid will be playing together again, amongst the backs. Remainder of the power line will be
made up of speedsters Russ Latham
and Les Armour and well known per*
sonalities Bud Spiers and Hilary
Wotherspeoa.
FORWAXDS STRONG
The all important lineout will see
a great array of veteran lettermen.
Hartt Crosby and Barrie Morris front
line scrum men will be on deck. Al
Carlyle, Scott Kerr, Marshall Smith,
Keith McDonald and Kirby are all
experienced players, and will give
the Victoria crew as much trouble as
they did last year, when they swamped the Islanders in two games.
STUDENT SUPPORT
Although ao large scale student
invasion fans been planned for the
weekend, a considerable number of
interested faas will fly or sail over
in order w witness this famous tilt.
Plans to attend both the rugby match
in the afternoon and the hockey game
tomorrow night, have been made by a
few persons.
As part of the Island expedition
another campus rugger fifteen will
make the tour. Varsity Sophomores
have been selected for an exhibition.
•Bird Hockey Win Sets
Stage For Nanaimo Co
UBC Thunderbirds ended a three game losing streak in
the Senior B hockey loop, when they outscored the B.C. Electric
White Hawks 5-3, in a game that showed spots of interest as
well as signs of poor hockey, particularly on the part of the
'Bird defence. ♦	
With the forward lines finally coming to life the campus men bounced
into a first period lead, but this was
nullified when alert White Hawk
Stu Robertson took a passout from
UBC defenceman Mai Hughes and
rapped the puck behind Bill House
to tie the score at 2-2.
After Berry and Wagner had scored
for the students in the first period,
Koch, Nelford and Torfason punched
home goals to give the 'Birds a safe
lead.
From then on, the Birds kept the
puck away from the Hawk sharpshooters, except for a momentary
lapse when another UBC pass went
straight to the stick of a conductor
who drove the rubber into the cage.
The surprise of the night came
when Mac Porteous, erstwhle manager and contact man for the club,
picked out a stick and pads, laced on
a pair of skates and took to the ice-
centering the third line in place of the
injured Gus Reid.
The usually bashful manager said
after the game, "I was terrific."
Despite howls from the other team
members, Coach Frederickson seemed
to agree and as a result, Porteous
will take the same position in Satur-

INVADE VICTORIA!
Grass Hockey Squad
Aims For Top Spot
By DAVE PUDNEY
Early predictions indicate that the Varsity Men's Grass
Hockey squad will again take the measure of their city rivals
7*, in this year's league play.
INVADE VICTORIA!
day's tussle with the Clippers in
Nanaimo.
The game in the Coal City is taking
on the proportions of a full-scale invasion, with the Mamooks, Majorettes and assorted students making
the two hour boat trip to take in the
game.
Except for the loss of Red, the
team will be at full strength, and
according to Frederickson, the kinks
observed in the defense last Wednesday will have been ironed out by
the weekend, and with the addition
of Porteous to the third line, (according to Porteous) the forwards will
present a well-balanced attack.
After watching Bill House work for
three games, Frederickson feels that
the club will have no worries regarding his work between the pipes.

Continuing the 1946-47 season,
which saw the Varsity and UBC
squads capture first and second positions as well as providing the local
gentry with some of the sweetest
exhibitions of stick handling seen
around these parts, the Grass Hockey
Club is at present burning up the
league with their forceful and tricky
brand of play.
TWO TEAMS ENTERED
Fielding an additional team this
year, the "Varsity Club" has entered
two teams in the first Division, Varsity and UBC — and one in the
second Division, Varsity "B".
The first half of the current year's
play ended in mid-December and
saw Varsity on top of the league
with 11 points and UBC tied in second
place with Vancouver, each with
9 points. The fourth team in the
1st division is an East Indian squad
which, although not having much
luck in the current season, can boast
of some tricky Indian players who in
the latter half of the playing season,
should be able to pull the team out
of the cellar spot. This team nearly
upset Varsity last weekend at Brockton Point.
Varsity "B" under many handicaps in their first year of league
play, are currently in third spot in
the closely-placed second division.
A bright spot of last season was
the invasion of Victoria by Varsity
of the All-Stars. Our boys took the
measure of the Islanders to the tune
of a convincing 5-3 score, and thus
established themselves as the best
in the west. This year, the executive
of the Club have made tentative
arrangements for a return engagement
in Victoria as well as an engagement
in the south against the University
of Washington.
Although the post-Xmas schedule
has not been definitely decided upon
as yet, it is thought by high officials
that this week's play should see Varsity drawn against their arch-enemies
Vancouver, while UBC will be up
against the tricky Indian squad. It.
is rumoured that if this is the case,
the Vancouver lads will consider this
a "grudge game" as the last game
between Vancouver and Varsity was
very closely fought—Varsity managing to fight their way to a 1-0 decision,
but not until after the finish of a
hotly contested match, both on arid
off ihe field.

Chiefs Outshoot Arrows 54-46
In Senior A Hoopla At UBC Gym
Doug Whittle's casaba kids,
the Chiefs, made it three in a
row Wednesday night when
they handed the youthful Arrows a 54-46 setback here, on
the UBC maples.
The win, their third since the new
season opened, further strengthened
ihe Student's grasp on the number
three spot in the Senior A league,
Getting off to a quick start, the
Chieftans rolled up an early 10-7 lead
and from then on were never in
trouble.
Using their speed to advantage on
every play, the Chiefs completely
ouiVnn the slower Transfermen and
scored  consistently on fast breaks.
An interesting sideline to the main
contest was a battle between opposing
centers, lanky Art Phillips aad ex-
Buzr hoy Gordy Sykes.
Each player lead his respective
team in points but the youthful Phillips outpointed the former Hornet,
18-13.
At the halfway breather, the Tribesmen led the way with a 21-11 score
and although the Arrows were
pressing hard at the final whistle
the Indians came out on te* 54-41.
Saturday's game has been cancelled.
When Bill and his crew go into the
woods now, they get timber out twice as fast
as they used to. That new tractor Bill bought
really handles those logs!
Back in town, the saw-mill is running full
blast, taking all Bill's crew can deliver . . .
And this extra activity, this extra income
spreading around through the community is
largely due to the fact that Bill went to see
his bank manager and arranged a loan to
buy the tractor . ..
In lumbering towns and rural hamlets, in
big seaports and tiny fishing villages, bank
credit — money at work — helps to increase
business activity in whole communities. Your
bank manager's job is to help men and women
grasp opportunities and to put the bank's
facilities to work for you and your neighbours.
