 Special Reading Lessons Planned For UBC Drivers Who Can't Read Signs
• UNDER THE highway act the
East Mall is considered a highway, as it is open to public thoroughfare. Also, under the highway act, it is unlawful to park on
any travelled section of a public
thoroughfare. Therefore, it is
unlawful to park on the East Mall.
The new 'No Parking' signs
placed along the East Mall Friday mean business. According to
the provincial police it Is perfectly alright to park there in defiance
of these signs, prbvided you have
enough money to pay up later.
Although the parking lot behind
the Brock has a capacity of about
forty cars, last Saturday night
there was a grand total of nine
cars in it. This would certainly
go to prove the constable's statement, "The drivers seem to take
the line of least resistance, and it
is easier to leave the car by the
road than to drive it into the
parking lot."
A combination of two things
necessitated the placing of the
signs. One, the highway act, has
been discussed. The other is the
fire marshall's act. The way
things stood, the entrances to a
lot of the buildings were blocked,
and in case of fire would have
been inaccessible.
These signs ore a permanent
fixture. The police feel they
weren't necessary, for if students
had exercised a bit of common
sense they would have realized
the danger of parking on the

photographer got the idea from
the same car parked there early
in the morning. It has its funny
side, sure, but it is really a serious business. However you look
at it, it is to the disadvantage of
the students to park on the East
With cars parked, like they often are, on both sides, it is very
difficult to drive through, and if

In case of a Are In the Brock these
cars would seriously hamper fire-

that the faculty tennis courts may

McGoun Debates
Return in January
•   SHADES OF last year's AMS battles, quorums and
special meetings are called up as the Western universities
once more announce plans for the annual McGoun Cup
The debate will re-enter the list of inter-varsity competition this year with teams from the University of Manitoba,
University of Saskatchewan and the University of British
Columbia.   They are to be held on January 19.

the war news.
A poll conducted on a cross section of the student body shows
that the majority of them read
and like CUP and BUP reports.
Of 90 students questioned 54
were in favor of it, 37 were against
it and 9 were indefinite.
Eighteen of the students who
were against war news in the
campus paper thought that it was
not fresh enough and that it could
be read in the daily newspapers.
The students In favor of the
idea thought it was a good idea
because some of them never read
the  news in other papers.
Record Crowds
Bt Homecoming
• Record crowds of homecoming
surged out to the campus Saturday   and  revisited  all  the  old
familiar campus haunts.
More than eight hundred past,
present, and future members of
UBC hissed the villain and wept
for Little Nell at the Potlatch
Variety show and danced to the
music of Rhys Williams orchestra in the Brock, at the Homecoming Dance.
Committee chairman Alan Ainsworth expects a fair surplus from
the game and dance, 329 dollars
were collected at the dance and
180 dollars worth of tickets were
sold at the stadium gate.
Committee members were Ron
Grantham, George Rush, Bob
Nicholls, Joan Anderson, Malcolm
Robinson, Norma Stowe, Ted English, Jack Duffus, Lee Canty, Herb
Capozzi, and Marion Dundas,
have to proceed without the participation of the University of Alberta since strict travelling regulations have been enforced on that
Up until press time on Monday
no official word had been received stating whether U. of A. would
or would not attend.
But in spite of the trouble in
Edmonton, the other universities
have gone ahead. The three other
rnembers of the "Western Universities" have okayed the plans and
the budget for UBC's teams has
already been passed.
Last ycar the University of Alberta was prohibited from entering a team for the competition so
the debates were not held.
Instead, it was suggested that a
conference on Post-War Developments be held. Two universities
seemed in favour of the plan but
the deciding vote was left to UBC.
After several stormy AMS meetings, UBC ratified the conference
plans and four delegates were sent
to Edmonton for the discussions.
The four delegates were: Harold
Parrott, Don McGill, Rosemary
Stewart and  Jack  Hetherington.
This year, news that the McGoun cup debates were to be held
was welcomed by students on the
four Western University campuses.
The debates, held traditionally
by these four universities, are
centred around one debatable topic.
Each university enters two
teams) into the debate.
One of the teams travels to the
campus of another Western university and the other stays at
One team takes the affirmative on
the debate and the other takes
the negative. This is all prearranged by definite rulings.
This year UBC will send a team
to Saskatchewan.
At each debate, there are three
judges, each with one vote. And
since each one of the judges' votes
is worth one point the highest
possible score for any one team is
six points.
Saskatchewan won the cup at
the last debate which was held in
1943. UBC has not won in the
debates since 1941.
Totem Pictures Will
Be Shot Till Thursday
•   THE WEDNESDAY deadline for the taking of pictures
for the Totem may be extended 'till Thursday. Stephen-
Colmer's photographer, Preston Locke, will be on the campus
until 4 o'clock on these two days.

Waltz Time on Thursday evening.
One boy's name will be picked
and one girl's name. AMS secretary. Helen Morgan, has been appointed as official drawer. Students
who don't win are asked not to
shed copious tears as tho waltzers
will probably be wearing dancing
Totem officials ask those who
haven't visited the south end of
thc  Brock  to do  so  Immediately.
They are warned that Thursday Is
thc last day and students whose
pictures don't appear In the Totem
will be visited by the doodlebug

Dean Sherman, Totem sales manager says that Totem subscriptions
will be sold from the Quad box
office during lunch hour. Everyone is advised to avail themselves
of this wonderful buy as soon as
possible. Remember you can't get
a Totem in the spring if you don't
pay a dollar down NOW!

Allies Take
Dutch Town
• LONDON, October 31—
(BUP)—The   r&ut   of
some 40,000 German troops
in Southwestern Holland is
an accomplished fact.
The enemy soldiers have been
driven into tangled swamplands
below the Meuse River by unrelenting British pressure, exerted
by some nine hard-hitting columns. The Germans have lost
their last big road control point
below the Meuse — the City of
Roosendaal, which fell to the British in gains of up to seven miles.
The loss of Roosendaal—which
is firmly in Allied hands except
for sniper groups—forces th» Germans to retreat across the Meuse.
Apparently most of them will be
able to do that. The enemy kept
off the highways during several
days of bright weather when Allied fliers were abroad—but today
fog again enveloped Holland,
grounding our planes. The Germans driven into the trackless area
on the south bank of the Meuse
are reported breaking up into small
groups—each for itself. Some are
said to be commandeering small
boats from Dutch farmers for their
escape. Others are getting across
the river via a pontoon bridge
some four miles northwest of British-held 'S-Hertogenbosch.
Southward—where they still hold
a few patches of dry ground—the
Germans are fighting rear-guard
actions in an attempt to hold roads
open to the Meuse. But these Nazis
are being enveloped swiftly by the
Allied advance.
The drive on the Dutch mainland
is in addition to the mop-up of the
Schelde Estuary approach to Antwerp—now in its final stage. Anglo-
Canadian forces have driven completely across big South Beveland
Island and have reached the causeway to Walcheren. They are meeting almost no resistance. The
enemy's guns bearing on the
Schelde from Walcheren have fallen silent under air and sea bombardment. It's believed the Nazis
are evacuating to other islands
north of Walcheren and perhaps
from there to the mainland above
the estuary of the Meuse.

Fall Remembrance

Tonight the witches will howl about the
Library ramparts and goblins will scurry
across the mall. The mystery of the autumn
season is in full swing and varsity tempo
quickens as students head for the inevitable.'
A month and a half of irredeemable university life has flowed swiftly by student
eyes. It is time we take stock of ourselves
and our session of 1944-45 while it is still
time to change.
It is evident that a great majority of Ihe
student body is just beginning to catch up
on that type of work which is the original
purpose of all students. The spectre of exams
has just peeked over the horizon and nearly
everybody caught a glimpse of it. The byword is "catch-up". In the Library, the Caf,
the lecture room a faint whisper of "I've
really got to get down to work" startles the
atmosphere and lecture attendance picks up.
For December is bearing down upon all.
Student enterprise muddles on in the
same* old way of people who don't seem to
know quite what to do, wanting success desperately but never meeting it completely.
Students learn that a course or two from the
School of Experience is just as valuable as
any the University offers. The only good
word we have for student enterprise is sincerity, which, after all, is a valuable asset
in itself.
The faculty moves on in the measured
pace of those who have "been this way
before"—slow, steady and sure of themselves
in their task of education. The administration, confident that the thirtieth session of
this University is the start of an intellectual
renaissance in this province, settles down
to the business of running a great educational institution and planning for the future.
The alumni, who visited the campus
over the week-end during the annual Homecoming ceremonies, have satisfied themselves that their Alma Mater is in good
Meanwhile, outside this tight little
campus, the mightiest armed forces the
world has ever seen move restlessly behind
the lines, preparing for a final lunge at their
adversaries armored throats. The last year
has been one of great victories for our side.
Only laat week our American allies defeated
decisively the Japanese Navy in the same
waters which lap softly on the edges of this
All is running according to plan at our
university, but let us remember whenever
we see those waters, that they are also
witness to the death of man in a cause to
which we subscribe, a cause to which we
have not added any material benefits directly
outside of the purchase of Victory Bonds.
Let us remember that when we begin to
"catch-up", to promote student enterprise, to
continue education and to work outside this
This is our only advice at this time: Let
us remember.
And the "Fall Ball"
While we agree that it is a good idea to
hold an autumn all-university formal we
are nevertheless quite shocked at the name
selected for the affair, although it is rather
obvious that such a name would evolve
under existing conditions.
We are referring to the rather odious
combination of "Fall" and "Ball", dreamed
up by some campus punster with an eye
to mocking the formal. Even now we can see
the publicity gags which will develop later:
"Haul a Doll to the Fall Ball"; or maybe
you prefer "Crawl to the Fall Ball". We
wonder what council member thinks himself
a poet and how long he's been out of Prince
of Wales. *
While we're on the subject of things to
do with Les Raphael, payer of the piper
and poet laureate of the campus, we must
take note of the Arts petition being circulated about the campus. It came under our
eyes the other day. Although we disagreed
on the clause about publicity—namely, the
failure of the elections was due to the lack
of that quality, we signed anyway.
We hope that this petition, duly signed
by a great many members of third and
fourth year Arts, will result in a little action.
Surely those Artsmen who signed will turn
out to the meeting they requested. But then
some people will sign* anything.

• COLUMNIST'S Note: Printed below is
a series of impressions gathered during
two years and two months at UBC. They
are not printed because the Ubyssey is short
of space or the columnist short of ideas, but
merely because the writer is developing
double pneumonia and is too lazy and preoccupied to write anything but what comes

CATS AND SORORITIES: The other night and
the other night before that,
ad infinitum, a group of cute
little cats gathered in a ten
foot passageway between two
houses and held a cat-calling
competition. The people in
the houses were annoyed,
particularly one university
student who had an 8:30.
The cats howled so long and
loud that the student missed his 8:30 because
he couldn't sleep.
One night, when the cats were particularly noisy, someone leaned out the window
with a pail of water, took a blind shot and
hit a cat. The noise ceased. The student
slept. He got his 8:30. The cats still howled,
but they were in a vacant lot where they
did no harm to anyone's peace of mind.
For this reason, and many others such
as cats that sleep on chesterfields, claw at
unsuspecting children one minute and purr
when stroked the next, and feel hurt when
put out with the milk bottle at night, cats
should never have been created in the first
It would be all right if cats were restricted in numbers by a species of birth control.
But they insist on multiplying in back alleys
so the world is stuck with them for all time.
Birth control is the only solution.
state that metal does not possess the qualities
of life. But on the UBC campus nearly
every day this theory is refuted. Metal pins
hop about with surprising agility, and if
they haven't got life then they are just
The first act of pin planting is probably
loat in antiquity, although the cave men
probably started it by hanging a bear tusk
necklace around the neck of the woman they
supposedly dragged by the hair into their
Today, all such acts of dragging people
by the hair into caves are frowned on
(Hollyburn Ridge excepted) although a
civilized method of the same process was
in practice in the days before gas rationing.
On the campus the highest form of the
process is used.
The cave-man descendant loses his pin
to a sweater and thereafter any dragging
about is instituted by the cave-women descendant. >
As in the days of Johnny Neanderthal,
when a bear tusk necklace meant nothing
more than the fact that a man had bear tusks
to throw around on loose cave women, most
cases today arise from the fact that it is
an age-old practice to throw pins around,
and so it is done.
There is nothing harmful in pin-planting
outside of the fact that it is liable to become
a habit. The practice is here to stay and the
cave-men descendants might just as well
make the best of it and the cave-women
descendants might just as well make the
most of it.
In the latter case, may it be said that
any cave-woman would approve of the civilized barbarous methods used by her descendants. And J. Neanderthal, Esq. would
heartily approve of the elimination of the
strenuous exercise of dragging unresisting
women into dark, damp caves.

•   MANY WOMEN have asked one question — "Will he
come back the same?"
Today—with Germany's defeat—many are coming back,
but few will be the same. According to one leading psychiatrist, this is where the women's work begins.
Many of the cases of battle fatigue and war nerves are
not acute enough to warrant medical attention. This psychiatrist says it is women's work now to be part nurse, part
mother, part psychiatrist.
The strain of war leaves its mark on all men. The cases,
of restlessness, of worn nerves, will be the problem of many
a wife and mother.
This psychiatrist answers the women's question with
another: "How can he be the same?"
One hour of battle is more maturing than 10 years of
civilian life. To each woman who thinks sensibly, the problem can be solved. To those who. insist on thrusting the old
pattern on the men, homes may be destroyed, misunderstandings will be many.
When a boy has been brought up in a simple, sensible
way of living, then suddenly uprooted and sent \o a far-off
place to fight, that itself is a shock. What woman can expect
that when men have seen their friends die next to them,
they will be the same.
The mother who tries to thrust the old pattern on the
returning soldier will find only tragedy. The one who is
quietly understanding—asking few questions, yet letting him
talk if he pleases—will find adjustment simple. In time, taut
nerves relax.
But—warns this psychiatrist—there will be little sympathy for the girl who decides it was "all a mistake" and
breaks an engagement or runs to a divorce court when a
boy returns restless, high-strung and a little "changed".
After the end of World War One, many homes were
wrecked because women were not prepared to accept the
changes, war brings in men. Already, in this war, these cases
have started to mount.
According to this psychiatrist, women must win their
peace—the peace of the American home.
The wearied, over-strained soldier who returns to a
family or sweetheart who has lived in complete security
while he fought on some foreign soil is going to find his
adjustment into civilian Ufe that much harder if he meets
a mother or wife who tries to force upon him the old mold
of himself.
Time alone can ease the tensions. Rest, quiet and understanding will do the rest.
After World War One—according to this psychiatrist-
many homes might have been saved if women had been
able to realize that a happy, cheerful environment would
heal the "changes". '     .

Book Exchange
Radtoo Home
• AT A MEETING held last
Thursday, the Radio Society decided to move their main offices
to the Brock and to attempt to
find some place for their scriptwriters and business staff.
As a temporary measure, either
the photography room or the
Book Exchange will be used as
the office while the studio will remain in Room G in the Aggie
Bldg. Plans are being formulated
to move the studio over to the
Brock also, and In that case both
the exchange and the photography
room would be used.
The nomadic existence of the
ever-expanding radio club was
stressed at the meeting and its
desperate plight was reviewed by
club members who feel that there
should be adequate accommodation for the society which has attained a major status on the campus.
AMS Money Goes
—But Fast, Says
Ken Creighton
• The $34,000 collected for AMS
fees this year is a lot of money
but according to Student Council Treasurer Ken Creighton,
most of it will be gone before the
current session ends.
The figure above represents the
amount Creighton has with which
to balance this year's budget.
More of the Brock Memorial
Building bonds will be redeemed
this year as $8,000 is to be used
for their purchase. Another $8,000
will be used to finance the pass
system, rugby games, the Science
accident insurance fund, the basketball games, special events, the
Players' Club, the Musical Society  and  all  class parties.
The remaining $18,000 will be
used for such things as the Men's
tions, insurance, audit, clubs, and
administration expenses.
Book Exchange
Pays Off This Week
e MONEY and books must be
claimed from the book exchange
on Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday of this week from 12.30
till 1.30. Arnold Johnson, book
exchange manager, states that all
books and money not picked up
by Thursday noon will be confiscated and turned over to the A.M.
S. office.
This year's system has been
changed from last year's, where
the books were returned after
Christmas, but it is believed that
the change will prove more efficient.
•   THE UBC RADIO Society has finally earned a network
spot.  After weeks of discussion with local CBC heads,
arrangements have been made for a series of Varsity-produced programs entitled "UBC and Canada".
The program, the first of its type to be produced on the
campus, will have the province-wide long and short wave
facilities of CBR.
The broadcasts are tentatively
scheduled to start on November
18 and three broadcasts will be
presented prior to Christmas.
They will be of the 15 minute variety but may be lengthened to 30
minutes if network time is made
Featured on the novel aeries
will be news of Varsity's contribution to the war effort, a review
of problems facing the university
and its plans for post-war development.
It is felt that these questions
are sufficiently important to command a province-wide audience.
Besides this complete coverage of Varsity news and views reports concerning other Canadian
universities will be presented.
This will lend a Dominion wide
spirit to the program.
This new development in   the
at the local CBR studio but Varsity's staff of technicians and producers will do the preliminary
work on the campus.
The first script of the new series is already at CBR and rehearsals and casting for the   various
parts will be held on Wednesday
The program will be produced

Vancouver Well-Planned
•   GOOD TOWN planning is sociological, scientific, artistic
and practical in purpose and method, according to Prof.
F. E. Buck and Mr. Fred Amess, the guest speakers of the
Social Problems Club on Friday noon.
City planning can only be suc
cessful if a well-informed public
is backing the efforts of the Town
Planning Commission.
Ancient towns such as Athens,
Rome, London, and Carthage were
famous because of five favourable
locations. They were located either
on seas or rivers, were in the main
line of traffic in the world, had
a reasonably good water supply,
were surrounded by an area of
good agricultural land for supplies,
and had a healthy site.
Vancouver has all these, and due
to the planning of Vancouver's
Commission, it has become well
known for its progressive policies,
said Professor Buck.
Mr. Amess, a member of the
Canadian Artists' Federation stressed the Importance of thoughtful
and artistic planning. What is the
use of a good bridge if the traffic
to it passes in pront of a hospital.
He declared "I absolutely believe
that town planning will give us
a fine city because we, the artists,
are going to see to It."

Lockhart Scores Victory
With Last-minute Try
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
• for men only
• ANOTHER CROSS COUNTRY meet is now history am
we extend congratulations to all those who managed to
stagger across the finish line, even to one Kendall Begert,
who we understand drove that fantastic car of his around
the course and then dismounted to enter the stadium. Seriously we think it was the best meet that has been held out
here. It was considerably faster than in previous years and
there were enough entrants to make it interesting. That is a
bit of a sore point though. All the teams had plenty of
warning and yet five did not enter any team at all. Myself,
I think that stinks.
The men who finished in the first 15 or 20 have my
sincere sympathy. Mr.. Van Vliet is already on their trail
and soon they'll be trotting 10 or so miles every day getting
ready for the Spokane meet. I wonder how many of you
realize that the first four men across the line this year are
the only four men left on the campus, of the seven who were
responsible for bringing us that plaque hanging in the AMS
office. That plaque will be here for quite a while yet.
Maury knows his cross country and general training.
The seven men who are picked to go will be in top shape
and they'll hold our banner high.
They deserve a lot more recognition this year than ever
before. Technically they are the only team we have in any
inter-varsity competition and at that they're competing with
some of the top flight colleges across the line. The sort of,
publicity they are getting for us in the North-western States
will be a great deal of help to us when after the war we
want to enter other athletic teams into a Pacific Coast
Our congratulations to Kenny and Cam, who broke the
record, and to all others who earned the chance to go to
Spokane. To the seven selected, good luck, and bring that
plaque back with you, fellows.

e PHILADELPHIA Eagles handed the New York Giants a
touchdown and a field goal on
fumbled punts—then came from
behind to win the game 24 to 17.
Accurate passing by Roy Zimmerman and brilliant running by
Steve Van Buren and Mel Bleeker
gave the Giants their first loss in
four starts.
Thus, the Eagles stepped Into a
first-place Eastern Division tie with
Washington Redskins, who scored
a 42 to 20 victory over the Card-
Pitt combine.
The Eagles took an early lead on
a 22-yard field goal by Zimmerman
but they handed the Giants a
touchdown when Ernie Steele
fumbled a punt. Liebel recovered
for New York on the Philadelphia
19 and carried the ball over.
In the second period, the Eagles
set up another Giant score when
Jack Banta fumbled a Giant punt
and Howard Livingstpn recovered
for New York. Two passes and q
pair of line smashes by Bill
Paschal put the New Yorkers
across the goal line.
The Eagles then pulled up In the
third quarter and both teams entered the fourth with 17 points
each. Again Zimmerman plunged
through the Giant line—this time

Varsity Hoop Squads Win
• TWO more basketball teams
got off to a winning start to
set some sort of a record for this
year. Saturday night, before a
goodly crowd in the campus gym
the Thunderbirds outgamed Lauries in the last quarter to win 39-
30 while in the opener the Frosh
squeezed out Higbies 28-27.
The Thunderbird game was
much the least interesting of the
two. Play was ragged throughout and in the final stages came
close to ressembllng a McKechnie
Cup struggle. The 'Birds started fast with a basket on the opening play but for the rest of the
period the so-called' first string
could do nothing but fumble the
With the advent of the pther
five, Varsity scored two quick baskets with freshman Clarkson pulling the string, but once again the
guards ignored the forwards and
the attack bogged down.
In the meantime Lauries had
pulled away to a 23-10 half time
lead. Veteran Arnie Bumstead in
the first quarter and Jack Pomfret
were the men chiefly responsible
for this.
After the half things began to
brighten for the Thunderbird
rooters as Ronny Weber and Ole
Bakken started to find the range.
In the final quarter the Thunderbirds struggled past Lauries and
won going away.
Outstanding for the Thunderbird squad were Weber and Bakken, both of whom finished with
eleven points. The three freshmen all showed promise and played an ample share of the game.
Reliable    Sandy    Robertson    was
badly off form but he had done
his bit for the cause by playing

Neither were outstanding however,

outstanding for the Frosh while
Len Lethan turned in the top

•   VARSITY  THUNDERBIRDS  squeezed   over  a   long-
awaited try with only 30 seconds to go to edge out the
surprisingly strong Vancouver All-Stars in a thrilling rugger
game, played in the Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Before an excited crowd of 1500, the mighty Blue and
Gold were stopped time and time again by the more experienced Stars and the tremendous punting of their young fullback, Bill Kinder.
Soccer Squads
Win and Lose
• VARSITY celebrated Homecoming with a win at the upper
field while UBC, without benefit
of the University atmosphere, lost
to Collingwood at Collingwood
Don Petrie started the scoring
on a 30-yard free kick but one of
the boys was off-side so the goal
didn't count. Just before the half
ended, Earl Woods, Varsity's fast
left-winger, put in a low shot to
give the Students a 1-0 lead at
the half.
In the second half, both teams
opened up. Sandy Robertson who
started at right-half moved up to
left wing taking over Wood's spot,
(Earl ran the relay for Navy), and
Holger Nygard started at right
back In place of Chuck Bennle who
played his last game. With this
potent combination clicking, Russ
Bagan beat the Pro-Recs' goalie
to put Varsity two up.
Then Pro-Recs threatened with
a goal, and Varsity's Pat Campbell
retaliated. Pro-Recs again scored,
but Fred Hole, steady centre forward closed the scoring with a
hard rebound and Varsity took the
game 4-2.
Herb Smith was absent due to a
cold, but George Gamble did a
fine job in his stead between the
posts. Nygard shapes up to be a
steady full back and will be a
great, addition to the team. Sandy
Robertson turned out on Saturday
and played a truly inspiring game.
This win puts Varsity in a tie
for third spot, just behind Navy.
There will be, a practice this
afternoon at 4:30 on the upper field.

e WITH REGARD to the articles of my fellow sports reporter
in last week's Ubyssey, I beg to
disagree with some of the assertions contained therein, and suggest that these articles throw the
wrong light on women's general
attitude towards physical education at UBC.
Everything the women have in
the way of Physical Ed facilities
is theirs because they have had
the interest, determination and
spirit to get it.
How did we get one hour's compulsory Physical Ed as part of our
war work? The women asked for
it. The motion to continue this
hour has twice since been passed
unanimously by WUS.
Women make the best possible
use of their gym facilities. All
classes are filled to overflowing,
and every minute of the women's
time is used to the fullest extent.
Many women, particularly prospective teachers, find it impossible
to obtain enough instruction to
satisfy their vocational requirements. Classes in Recreational
Leadership and Playground Instruction accommodate only a
fraction of those who would like
to take these courses.
Women's interest in Physical
Education is further shown in the
newly-organized PERC of Women's Physical Education and Recreation Club, which brings
speakers to the campus to address
women on subjects pertaining to
Physical Ed as a vocation, and
supports in every way physical
education on tha campus.
No, Varsity women do not lack *
athletic spirit. Rather this spirit
has carried the women to a point
where they have done nearly all
they can. Outside help is needed
if we are to continue the good
work and finally get a department.

It was a thriller from the moment Chancellor C. W. Hamber
surprised spectators with a well-
booted 35-yard kick, which officially started the proceedings, to the
climax when Varsity finally inched
the pigskin over the goal line.
Right from the start of the game,
Vancouver began to drive deep
Into Varsity's territory, but with
five minutes gone, Keith MacDonald had'a great chance to score.
Bob Croll started the play and
combined with MacDonald for a
gain of 30 yards before Bob Law-
son missed a poor pass with only
one man to beat.
The All-Stars came right back
and had two golden opportunities
to forge ahead on penalty kicks,
but Lloyd Williams kicked wild
from only twenty yards out and
Bill Kinder's 40 yard placement
fell short.
The play went from one end to
the other with the 'Birds three
line on one power play, sprinting
for fifty-five yards only to bog
down short of the mark. On one
particular play Don Ralston, who
along with Tom McCusker was
outstanding for UBC, carried the
mail to the one foot line.
Just a few minutes before the
whistle at half time, Andy Carmichael had his shoulder injured,
and it was later discovered that
he had a broken collarbone.
The latter half started with,
Gerry Jenvey pulling off a brilliant play. Playing fullback because he was hurt earlier in the
contest, he took the kickoff and
started the three line on their
merry way for a large gain.
Then and there the affair turned
into a duel between Varsity's backfield and Vancouver's Kinder.
Kinder actually stunned those in
the stands, with his exceptional
ability to drive the Thunderbirds
back on their own doorstep each
time they threatened.
Jack McKercher came very close
to winning for Varsity when he
tried a field goal from 23 yards out
but it went only Inches wide. Later
Harry Kabush attempted a placement from the 45 but the ball was
just short. It was a very good
attempt and with a little more experience Kabush should become a
fair place kicker.
From there, the All-Stars went
rampaging down the field to Varsity's 20 yard line where hope was
all but lost when the Stars were
handed a penalty kick. After much
deliberation, Kinder tried for the
goal but to everyone's amazement
one of the students managed to
knock the ball down.
Instantly the college boys came
to Ufe and with some sparkling
runs, found themselves on the
Stars' five. The scrum, outweighed
by a great margin, dug in deep and
took the ball with them. Although
Gerry Lockhart was credited with
the try, it was really the whole
scrum that took the pigskin over
and deposited themselves over it.
Gerry Genvey tried the convert
but missed but nobody cared be-
caues the whistle blew immediately after the kick.
