Penny Drive Slumps Sadly;
Nets Mere $235 Of Quota
•   THE PENNY DRIVE ended Saturday night with a very
unsuccessful mixer and without more than half of the
sum which it set out to get.
The total receipts to date are ___-__»__»_____»»»»«_»»»■___,
approximately $235. Of this sum,
the Jabez skit provided more than
$70 and the Mamooks auction a-
bout |16. The remainder came
from the Arts and Engineers lines.
The sororities were responsible
for most of the pennies on the Arts
line, So great was their enthusiasm that one of them started a
very successful bingo game which
had to be stopped by the authorities. Several times during the
week full bottles of pennies were
brought in. Those who contributed
the most were Kappa Kappa
Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta and
Kappa Alpha Theta.
The drive waa hindered by a full
week of noon hour events which
left the students little time for the
penny lines.
"We wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who lent
their assistance to make this drive
at least a partial success. The results are anything but good but
the fault is with the large number
of students who did nothing to
help the drive", said a member of
tho committee.

Register Now
For Summer
• SUMMER employment
is open to those students
who register now at the Employment Bureau. There will
be no fees for this necessary
registration, but job-seekers
are asked not to delay in this
request. This registration
also applies to those who
have applied for part-time
work as well as Christmas
The office in the Brock Building is open Monday to Friday between 12:30 and 1:30, and on Saturday from 11:30 to 1:30.
The Employment Bureau will
present a radio program through
the UBC Radio Society on Saturday, March 6, at 6:15 p.m. from
CKMX (680 kilocycles). By this
program, the Employment Bureau
wishes to make known to the public at large, and especially to the
employers of the city, the tremendous effort of this bureau,
and just what it can do for them.
It must be known that hundreds
of enthusiastic young men and
women are anxious to do what
part they can In keeping Vancouver's industries functioning.
The Employment Bureau ls no
longer short-shifted. It Is very
grateful for the response It received In reply to a plea for extra
help. The organization has been
newly organized as follows:
Director, R. S. White; Assistant
Male Director, Edward Frlesen.
Assistant Female Director, Pamela

and Treasurer, Don Field; Secretary and Filing Clerk, Helen Duncan; Interviewers, Bill Knobbs
and Eileen McCrae.
The Employment Bureau will
thus be tible to meet the increasing demands made upon its services.
hundred angry students, who met
in Arts 100 Thursday noon. The
students received a report from the
class executive on the progress the
committee had made in requesting
the Board of Governors to reduce
the fees, which are among th*
highest in Canada. The report stated that the executive had mads
little progress with representations
to President Klinck and the Board.
A request for an interview with
the Governors was refused and the
grad executive was informed that
a motion had been passed by the
governors maintaining the fee at
fifteen dollars.
A request for an Itemized account of the expenditures on the
graduation ceremonies met with
the reply that such an account
could only come from the Minister
of Education. Asking for the statement was met with the reply that
he had not the information and
that it could be obtained from the
president. A second wire asking
him to authorize the President to
issue the statement was sent. The
answer to this was to the effect
that the President and Board of
Governors were in control of all
university matters and that the
Minister of Education was not required to authorize them to issue
a statement.
At the student meeting, members
heard Roy Deane, President of the
Graduating Class outline the attempts of the committee to meet
with a satisfactory compromise on
the question of grad fees.
Deane and other speakers pointed out that if this graduating class
did not make some attempt to force
the Board of Governors to show
what expenses are made, then no
basis for reduction of fees could
be satisfactorily made. Also
if this present class did not attempt to gain a reduction then following classes would have to pay
up as well.
It was pointed out that no one Is
questioning the Integrity of the
Board of Governors, nor the administration, but that it was felt
that the, fees were too high, and as
it was up to the students to pay
the cost, then they have every
right to know where the money Is
A motion was made and seconded that if the Board of Governors
did not give the students an accounting then a "Token strike' (a
mass failure to attend lectures for
one day) would be held to register
the disapproval of the students.
Because this is a war session
and because of the cost to the people of the province of maintaining
the university it was the opinion
of the meeting that this would be
an unreasonable move. An amendment was made, stating that a petition should be sent to the Board
of Governors demanding that a
statement of the graduation expenses be given to the graduating
class President by March 15, 1043,
and if this is not done then the
members of the class will refuse
to pay their fees. The actual motion follows at the end of this
story; it was adopted with only
one or two members dissenting.
It has been pointed out that the
grads are interested only in bringing about a reduction of the fee
They cannot make concrete proposals as to what functions should
be curtailed unless they know
what the costs of the various Items
It is their view that the fees are
too high for any time, however,
particularly in time of war it Is
felt that some Immediate curtailment of the program is essential.
Members of the executive will be
stationed at Arts 100 today noon
with petitions for members of the
graduation class to sign* Anyone
who signed a petition at the meeting yesterday noon ls requested to
sign again as the petition waa
not In Us correct form yesterday.
The text of the resolution passed
at the meeting is as follows:
WHEREAS, the graduating class
of 1943 desires to reduce the formalities of the graduation ceremonies and WHEREAS, the Board
of Governors of the University of
British Columbia have refused to
issue an itemized account of all
expenses incurred at the graduation
ceremonies to the duly elected representatives of the graduating
class of 1943, so that those representatives can recommend the cancellation of certain formalities and
for a reduction in the graduation
fee of fifteen dollars, and WHEREAS, the Board of Governors have
refused to decrease the graduation
fee of fifteen dollars and WHEREAS the Board of Governors hava
refused to discuss the graduation
fee and graduation ceremonies with
the representatives of the graduating class of '43.
THAT a petition be sent to the
Board of Governors requesting an
itemized account of all expenses
incurred at the graduation ceremonies that are covered by the,
graduation fee of fifteen dollars,
and that this information be forwarded to the President of the
graduating class of 1943 on or before March 15, 1943, and BE IT
the Board of Governors refuse or
signify their intention of refusing
to issue a detailed account of all
expenses Incurred at the graduation ceremonies the students in the
Class of 1943 Indicate their refusal
to pay the graduation fee of fifteen
UBC Grad
Fees Top
In Canada
• VALIDITY of the Graduating Class demand for
a reduction 'in graduation
fees is established in the following comparison of the
Graduation Fees of all the
Canadian universities.
Nearest to UBC's 31500 fee, for
graduation in absentia or otherwise, come the fees of Alberta,
Manitoba, Toronto, Queen's, Mc-
Gill, Dalhousie, and McMaster
universities, all with fees of 310.00.
And of these Alberta has an In
absentia fee of only $5.00, and
Dalhousie a fee for B. Ap. Sc. of
only 6J.00
There are. however, several universities whose graduation fees
run lower still. These include
New Brunswick ,with a fee of
36.00, Mt. Alison and Acadia, both
only $5.00, and lowest of all, Saskatchewan .only $3.00.
It will be seen that UBC not only has the highest Gradurtion Fee
of any Canadian university, but
also exceeds the next highest by

The McGill Daily
Although we have not got the complete
details of the suspension of the McGill Daily
by the Senate of the University, it would
appear from this distance that the Senate
was perfectly justified in it's action.. The
task of disciplining the editors of the Commerce issue should logically fall to the student government, however, it seems that
McGill's student administration shirked the
job and the Senate was forced to take action.
The Commerce issue of the Daily was
flagrantly smutty. There seems to be no
question of this. If it was a matter of one
or two questionable stories, then we feel that
no action would have been necessary, aside
from precautions to prevent any recurrence.
However, the whole issue was a disgraceful
display of poor taste.
The Engineers of the University of Alberta put out an issue of the Gateway which
was very questionable, although by no
means as bad as the McGill issue. Aa a result the student government has banned future Engineering editions and also eliminated the regular column "Casserole". This
column has been a Gateway feature for
yean. Always lively, and sometimes gusty,
Casserole was, generally speaking, no reflection on the tastes or moral standard of
the U. of A. campus. College papers tend
to be a little racy at times and it does no
Unfortunately some people don't know
when they have exceeded their limit. Such
was the case at Alberta and it would seem
that their council was justified in forbidding
any more columns, or Engineers issues.
The freedom of the press depends a
great deal on the ability of those who control editorial policy to recognize their responsibilities.   To our way of thinking the
editors of the special McGill Daily violated
their trust and should expect to take some
sort of discipline for it.
We hope that this will not take the form
of any censorship. If such a board were set
up it would undoubtedly result in a policy
of suppression which would defeat the object of any newspaper. Disciplinary measures yes, but censorship, never.
At UBC the responsibility for any printed matter which appears in the UBYSSEY
rests on the Editor-in-Chief and the senior
members of the staff. The council has the
right to suspend any or all of these people
if it sees fit, but the council would undoubtedly have to have the support of the student
body. If the students granted their approval
then council's action would hold, otherwise
they would be powerless.
Thus the final decision would rest with
the student body, who, after all, pay the
shot and are entitled to control the publications to that extent.
This may be the case of McGill; apparently it is at Alberta. The McGill students
lost their right by failing to act, placing the
Senate (the final authority in any matters
regarding student discipline) in a position
where it had to take action.
We are sympathetic to our McGill colleagues, tiie regular McGill Daily staff, who
were involved in this mess although it was
a Commerce staff that put the issue in question out. We cannot agree with the action
of the student body in protesting the Senate
action, nor the Commerce editors, but we
do hope that Canada's oldest college paper
will not suffer any loss of it's rights because
of the  foolishness  and  irresponsibility of
a few.
A Christian Mission
Plans are being worked out by a special
committee for the holding of a Christian
mission on the campus next year. As we
understand it, the idea and purpose of this
mission is to have a two or three day session
in which the student body will be addressed
by various speakers, and to hold discussion
groups with the purpose of aiding students
to a better understanding of religious doctrines. It is the hope of those sponsoring this
movement to promote a greater interest in
religion and to help students to form more
definite opinions on religious matters.
There is a tendency for modern university students to develop an entirely material philosophy, or to become too critical
of religious dogma, with the result that they
become entirely indifferent to spiritual matters. Either that, or they accept the religion
of their parents, without question, and then
take no active interest in it.
Religion has played a great part in the
history of the world; it seems that every
civilization has required some sort of religion. It would be safe to say that some sort
of faith ls a necessity for almost every
Yet in recent years there has been a
swing from the church; other ideals have
been set up and people have turned to the
worship of other gods, such as science. These
have not proved very satisfactory and the
result has been a large number of disillusioned people, who are bewildered and do not
know what to believe in. The old ideals and
teachings of the church will never satisfy
them, they want something to believe in
but the old beliefs are not satisfactory.
It is here that the proposed student
Christian mission will have an opportunity
to be of service.
If those who plan the program can see
their way clear to present a program which
includes speakers of many denominations,
and to give everyone a chance from Atheist
to Catholic, then they will provide the students who attend with plenty of food for
thought. Such a program would be of interest to a large number of students. Certainly
any student, who is at university to gain as
much education as possible, would not miss
this opportunity to gain ideas, and to study
the merits of the various ideals. Such a plan
would help to clear up the questions and
doubts in the minds of many, and it would
also lead to a greater interest in religion on
the part of students who took advantage of
the opportunity to see and hear the proponents of the various schools of thought.
If, however, those in charge present a
program of speakers, who are entirely orthodox and who represent a narrow group of
churchmen then the plan will no doubt be
met with a complete lack of interest on the
part of ihe student body, with the exception
of theologs and members of the SCM.
There is much to be gained from a broad
program, if it brings out new ideas and is
planned to awaken the interest of the average student. Should the plan be conducted
with that view in mind then we think it will
meet with success and we hope that the
committee members will keep this in mind
when they get around to working out the
Editor,  the UBYSSEY,
Dear Sir.—
Every student of the world's
development during the past 2000
years has observed tho slow but
sure broadening of the basic concepts of mankind's fields of
thought and action'. For example,
in mediaeval times the economic
unit was the feudal castle. Present
day visionaries and past-war re-
constructionists are thinking in
terms of the world as one economic unit. Wars, in nlden days,
concerned only two barons In adjoining districts. The pressing need
in the conduct of today's war is
for a global strategy. And so the
principle could be applied to every
field of human endeavor It might
be claimed that the one hope of
making the world of war today into a world of peace tomorrow lies
in the ability of thc peonies of the
world to so re-adjust their thinking that they become primarily
and basically citizens of the world
Any trend so general r.nd so important as this one cannot be ignored by students. We ^xist today
as students, not In the community
of the University of British Columbia, but In the community of
the world, Our responsibilities and
our bonds of fellowship He with
the world's student body. It is Impossible for us students ut UBC to
ignore the plight of thc students
of China, Russia, France Holland,
Belgium, and the many other
countries more drastically affected
than we by the course of the war.
It is equally impossible for us
to ignore the plight of the many
ex-students who are now the prisoners of war of the Axis or the
If we are to live up to these,
our responsibilities, we must support, to the limit of our ability,
the work of the International Student Service. ISS is a world student movement in the truest sense
of the word. It knows no barriers
of race, color, or creed. To be a
student in distress is the only
qualification required of those
who seek  its assistance.
Students at UBC will acknowledge their responsibilities to, and
recognize thoir fellowship with,
students of the world during ISS
week, March 8-13. A full program of activities is planned, and
your participation In them will not
only fulfil your individual responsibility to ISS, but will be
gratefully acknowledged by distressed students throughout thc

• THE ELEMENT called Woman
is a member of the human
family and has been assigned the
chemical symbol Wo. The accepted atomic weight Is 120, although
a number of Isotopes have been
identified, having a number of
weights ranging from OS to 400.
It is abundant in nature and
found both free and combined,
usually asociated with Men, one
found In one's own locality is preferred.
A number of allotroplc forms
have been observed, thoir density,
transparency, hardness, color,
boiling-points varying within
wide limits. The color exhibited
by many specimens is n surface
phenomenon, ar.d is usually due
to a closely adhering powder. It
has been found that an unpolished
specimen tends to turn green in
the presence of a highly polished
one. The boiling-point for some
varieties is quite low, while othera
are likely to freeze at any moment. All varieties melt under
proper treatment . The taste varies from sweet to very bitter, depending upon environment and
Wo absorbs without disolving In-
a number of liquids, the activity
being greatly increased by alcohol.
Seemingly unlimited quantities of
expensive food can also be absorbed. Some varieties catalyse
this food into fat in accordance
with the formula Pressure X Volume — R X Temperature. Many
naturally occurring varieties are
highly magnetic. In general, tha
magnetism varies Inversely with
the cube of the age. Some varieties tend to form Annc-lons, others Cat-Ions. Their Ionic migrations vary widely. All varieties
exhibit great affinity for Gold, Silver, and Platinum, and for precious stones, both in chain and
ring structures. The valence towards these substances is high and
its study is complicated by the
fact that the residual valence is
never satisfied.
Many stable and unstable unions
have been described, the latter In
the dally press. Some varieties
being highly explosive, are exceedingly dangerous In inexperienced hands. In general, they tend
to explode spontaneously when
left alone by men. The application of pressure to different specimens of Woo produce such a speci-
ety of results as to defy the principles of Le Chateller.

Letters to Editor
You are to be congratulated for
your pointed editorial of the 19th
In reply to an editorial of the
"Manitoban" which carried some
Inexcusably inflamatory statements. Apparently the wide
prairie lands have served to develop in the writer of that editorial not a broad-minded, but a
narrow-minded outlook.
I rather think that the writer of
that "Manitoban" declamation,
who I believe is one of the tw)
recent McGoun Cup debaters, is
giving vent to "sour grapes" as a
result of his defeat by the UBC
McGoun team. Probably, if the
Manitoba team had won, he would
be writing in an exaggerated manner—thereby vaunting the victory
—of the great oratorical abilities
displayed on our campus; of the
brilliant lenders; of the vitality of
UBC and of the democratic spirit
prevailing there. But he lost the
match, mrst therefore "gripe," not
merely unfairly criticizing UBC,
But making some gross untruths.
But there is, perhaps, no object
in recrimination. We have only
to realize that UBC has received
the "dynamic" gentleman from
Manitoba as an honourable visitor should be received, and that
he In return ha*, chosen phrase
his bread-and-butter letter In a
distorted editorial.

Green Roomers Present
Savory's Opus Mar. 17-20
•   AS A PASS FEATURE, to students, the Players' Club
will present Gerald Savory's three-act comedy "George
and Margaret" on March 17, 18,19, 20.
The student body will have first cjiance to acclaim the
play on Wednesday, March 17, which has been set aside as
students' night.
Few    spectators    realize the       _____________-__————--——.
amount of hard work and con- 4
centrated effort that goes into the
production of a successful play.
The Thespians have on aa all-out
do-or-die backstage policy. In
spite of such difficulties as the getting of all the cast together, the
booking of the auditorium,' thi
completion of pressing essays, and
the unnerving prospect of approaching finals, the cast is cooperating to make this production
exceed all otbsts.
In feminine lead Is Sandra Gordon, fellow countryman of di-
sotor Miss Lola Duncan, who ls
playing the role of Frankie. Opposite her in romantic lead ls Art
Jones as Roger.
Allan Alnsworth and Elizabeth
Leeks play the bewildered parents, while Ron Heal and Blair
Bailly portray respectively the
amusing and sullen sons. Helga
Jarvi plays the maid, Gladys.
Miss Duncan predicts that Blackie Lee as Beer, which really is a
small part, will walk away with
the show. This unique part was
the one that Miss Duncan herself
chose to play some time ago in the
same production before an audience comprised solely of soldiers.
Particularly pleased ls Miss Duncan with her casting of the title
roles of George and Margaret. She
refuses to reveal their identity,
but she said that of all the cast
they gave her the least trouble.
Die club has reached the hair-
tearing stage, which ls a traditionally good omen in the theatre
world. Success seems assured as
bedlam reigns in the Green
Room. Rehearsals are being held

• THE GREATEST basketball .saga of this or any other
year, the slap-happiest game on earth, that super dooper
production, none other than the Pub-council basketball game
has finally been pinned down to Tuesday, March 9, at noon
in the Gymnasium.
The Dirty Nine, alias the Sty-
dents' Council are rolling up their
heavy artillery in the person of
WAA Matheson and Bill Backman.
Besides the other seven members
Council has "borrowed" a heavy
caliber Bofors gun from the Point
Grey battery with which they are
hoping to shoot down the highflying pubsters who hate trtaajfe-
ed in every game for 27 years.
The Pub has "acquired" a let of
smoke bombs which will be used
to lay a thick smoke screen to
shield the attacking newsmen.
Leading the Pub troops to battle
ls General Andrew W. Snaddon,
an old hand at subduing council-
men. In addition to his seasoned
and highly flavoured veterans, the
General has a sterling collection of
upstanding young cu^ reporters
who will act as Infantry and replacements. A brief glance at the
masthead bears this out.
At a late date last night, Council
was still undecided as to their lineup. The Tin Gods held a special
meeting to attempt to settle this
matter but ran into severe opposition from several members who
Insisted upon leading the attack
alone. As usual the meeting ended
in a free-for-all with Backman and
Carson on top and Morris on the
bottom and Mulvin and Warner
leading a cheering section.
The only official weapons will
be basketballs and the traditional
ladder. The General has warned
his men to bring gas masks in case
the Council, as usual, try to use
hot air.
Unofficial reports indicate that
the play will be about as clean as
the Caf during noon hour, but
the pubsters, regardless of their
opponents foul tactics intend to
abide by the rules of the games,
unless Matheson attempts to score
a basket.
The student body is warned to
get their last looks at the Dirty
Nine before Tuesday. The funeral
will be private. Admission to the
game Will be one cent, to be donated to the Red Cross.
Fifty Men
For Party
• JUNIOR and Senior Coeds will be able to go to
the Class Party, escorted by
airmen, through a Date Bureau which is being set up on
the campus.
Arrangements are now being
made by a committee headed by
Helen Welch. Any co-ed who
wants a date will hand her name
into the Quad office by 3:00 p.m.
on Friday, March S. There are
about fifty lusty males available.
The party will be held In Brock
Hall, on Tuesday, March 9, beginning at 9:00.
Fourth and Third year students
will be admitted free as a Pass

Birds Play Lauries For Finals Saturday
Meet Ex-Britannia At	
Brockton Ovat At 3:15
• TOMORROW AFTERNOON Varsity Thunderbirds will
be on the threshold of another victory if all goes according to plans. Maury McPhee is feeling a little thirsty but has
nothing to drink from. Therefore he will send his boys out
to bring in the Tisdall Cup at 3:15 preferably full to the brim,
with blood of Ex-Britannia.
Schedule Still Uncertain
The Blue and Gold have two
straight victories under their belts
and are confident that the third
one is in the making. In the first
gams of tht Tisdall Trophy series
the boys won an uphill fight but
came back with a stinging win
over Ex-Byng last Saturday, Final
score of that game wm ST to 6
for us, or two points for each player and one for the coach.
On the same sports menu at
Brockton Oval this Saturday the
Rowing Club meets Ex-Byng in
the first contest of the afternoon
at 115. Tail is the final of the
Bell-Irving Cup series,
Nothing definite has been decided in regards to the McKechnie
Cup yet The schedule has been
seriously disrupted and no one
seems to know Just what ia going
to be done about it. A meeting
will be held hy the B.C. Rugby
Union this weak and to try and
iron the situation out. The lads
from the oampua are complaining
■bout the shortage ef time before
the exams.
The way the situation stands now
ia that Victoria has one' victory ht
one start, Vancouver has one victory in two starts and the 'Birds
have failed to counter in their
only contest.
UBC Has A Fighting Chance
If Victoria wart to play Varsity
in the next game and win it would
automatically place the cup in Victoria for another year. There is
s chance that Varsity could gam
the trophy by defeating Victoria
twice and Vancouver ones. This
chance is a mathematical calcula
tion but is considered very improbable by the experts. When
the trend of events is considered
beside some of the experts advice
lt ia not advisable to score an un-
played game. You never can tell
what is going to happen until the
last man leaves the field.
Inter A's Close Good
Season; Bow To Higbies
• IN PROBABLY tho most exciting game ever played In the
King Ed. Gym certainly the most
exciting played anywhere in Vancouver this year, Higbies ousted
a fighting Varsity team 54-47 on
Tuesday night from the finals of
the V. and D. Inter A playoffs.
In Higbies, the Thunderbirds
were meeting probably the most
outstanding team developed In the
minor leagues In recent years.
Ted Milton, coach of Higbies, had
what practically amounted to an
all-star teams. For his nucleus, eTd
had the champion Higbie B team
of 1942, who went through their
schedule without the loss of a
single team. He had about 50 young
players to build Into this team and
he chose his material wisely.
This year's Higbie crew emulated
the feat of their Inter B predeces.
sors by going undefeated through
their schedule. They went into
the playoffs heavy favorites to win
the Chris Spencer trophy, emblematic of Inter A supremacy.
The Varsity team, on the extreme other hand, was organized
from those students on thc campus
who wished to have some form of
recreation in their sparo time. Bud
McLeod was the man who conceived the Idea of forming another
UBC entry In the Inter A league
i naddition to the already-well-
organized Frosh outfit.
Pete McGeer voluntarily stepped down from the Senior A team
to help Bud with the organization
of the club. For coach was selected Demetrle Elefthery, a fifth
year pre-medlcal student, who
had formerly starred with Varsity
Senior B's and coached last year
at Alberta.
The team did not hang up a
particularly lir.pressive record ia
in the first half of tfto Inter A
schedule, but after Christmas they
really started to click .
Strengthened by new-comers
Ches Pedersen and Pat Campbell,
the Varsity team managed to snaffle the fourth spot In the playoffs,
where they started by taking
Gregory-Price, whom they hadn't
beaten before In 2 straight games
In the first game of the finals,1
they dropped a close derision to
the unbeaten Higbie team. In the
seconds, however, they made people sit up and take notice, by becoming the first Inter A team to
beat Higbies all year.
Higbies walked away with the
next encounter, but, In the last
game, played last Tuesday, tho
boys played heads-up ball
throughout the contest to, first tie
up the game, sending It Into over,
time, and then force the mighty
Milton men Into still nnother extra session, In which they (Varsity) finally lost, the final score
being 54-47.
For a glorious finish to a fine
season, the following deserve a lot
of credit: Coach Demetrle Elefthery and players Bud McLeod,
Coeds Advance To Finals;
Defeat Normals 2 Straight
• VARSITY'S CO-ED BASKETBALL team advanced to
the finals by virtue of their 32-10 defeat of Normal School
at the campus Wednesday night. They will now meet the winner of the Boeings-Pro-Rec series. Boeings at present lead
this series one game to nil.
Varsity started out slow and did not find their stride
until the second quarter. Normal kept pace with the co-eds
during the first period scoring six points. Varsity's quarter
time score was also six.
During the next quarter the blue and gold began to
serve notice that they couldn't be trifled with as they scored
seven points while holding Normal scoreless.
In the third period Varsity again held the teachers to
no score as the students ran in eight points. Pauline Greer
scored half the points in this quarter by sinking two foul
shots and a field basket.
In the last quarter Varsity began the last period drive
when they broke away from their checks time and again.
Most of the Varsity scoring in this period was through solo
breaks down the floor. The co-eds broke up the teachers
plays continually with the result that Normal didn't score a
field basket in this quarter, however, they did score four foul
Top scorers for Varsity were Norma Ford and Eileen
McKillop with nine points and Pauline Greer with eight.
LINE-UP:—Eileen McKillop 9, Pauline Greer 8, Betty
Walton, Jackie Vance 2, Helen Matheson 4, 32.
The co-eds had previously won the first game of the
semi-final series when they downed the Normal outfit at the
Normal gym on Monday night by another huge score of 43-9.
Pauline Greer topped the scorers that night with 14 points,
followed by Helen Matheson with 11.

• THANKS TO A WELL-EARNED victory, 50-31 over
Lauries last Wednesday in the Varsity gym, our Thunderbirds have an excellent chance to advance to the finals
of the V. and D* league playoffs. The boys can do this by
repeating their victory over the Pie-men in a game tomorrow
Wednesday night, the 'Birds
turned in one ot their better performances. They had control of
the contest throughout, scoring the
first basket of the game after half
a minute of play, and at no point
after the first quarter, in which
they led all the way, was their
lead less than six points.
Varsity got most of their points
through set-ups and well-worked-
out run-and-block plnys. There
was nothing fluky about any of
their baskets. They earned every
one through their scrappy play
and alert, snappy ball-handling.
Lauries, on the other band, executed very few plays. They were
checked up so closely by the collegians that most of their shots
were taken from near-centre. The
pie-men play the most effective
game where they can move the
ball in close to the bucket and
then through generous use of their
usually high-scoring centre, Arnie
Bumstead, gamer their points
from close In.
Wednesday, though ,the Thunderbirds in general, and tall Gordie Sykes, (who checked Bumstead) in particular, bottled the
pie-men up so effectively, so that
there was no doubt at any tuna
about the outcome.
As proof of this brilliant piece
of analysis, the score sheet reveals
that Lauries out-shot our boys 76
to 56. Therefore, the only way
Varsity could win would be to
make sure of all of their attempted shots and to cut to n meagre
percentage, by close checking, the
chance Lauries had of making
their shots. This is exactly what
Varsity took off with a 15-1 lead
in the first quarter and augmented
their margin by six points in the
second quarter to lead at the half
26-14. At the end of the third
quarter, the score stood Varsity 88
Lauries 20. They slowed down the
pace somewhat In the last session,
but still Increased their lead 1 point
to finish with an even 19 point
VARSITY—Robertson 18, Barton
7, Franklin 10, Johnson 3, Sykes 4,
Stilwell 6, Bakken, Yorke 2, Hayward. Total—50.

• IN CASE you are puzzling
over the name Rosnyk in the
Laurie score figures, the gentle*
man is one Mike Rosnyk of the
RCAF, Lauries signed him yesterday. Mike is not exactly a
stranger to Vancouver basketball.
He was a member, In fact the star,
of the Winnipeg St. Andrew's outfit that played the Thunderbird
wonder team of 1941 in the Western Canada finals . . . Wednesday's
game was the roughest of the season. A total of 43 fouls were called by referees Gummy Leach and
Ted Milton, 23 of them on Lauries.
When the game ended, three of the
eight men Lauries brought out
were off the floor on fouls and
three more were playing under the
handicap of three personals apiece.
Another act of skullduggery by
any one of these three end Lauries would have been forced to
play a man short . . . During the
first quarter of the basketball
game, after about five minutes
had passed, it was found that no
one had been keeping time. After
a hurried consultation between
the referees, M. L. Van Vliet and
Laurie Ltddle, lt was decided to
continue the game on thc assumption that five minutes had passed
. . . For his last few games, since
returning from his enforced vacation with Mr. Mumps, guard Art
Johnson has been switched to a
forward spot, the position he held
down last year.
A little moron pushed a cow
over a cliff so he could hear the
Jersey Bounce.
