Runs for c45-i46
AMS President
•   KEN CREIGHTON, treasurer of the Alma Mater Society,,
has announced that he will run for president of the AMS
for 1945-46, in the coming elections.
"Each year," Creighton stated, "the president and treasurer of the AMS instigate plans which are hardly^ underway
when the end of the year approaches. A new executive is
elected, and the plans fall into abeyance. As I will be attending UBC next year, it will give me the opportunity to
carry through to completion many of the plans begun this
"It will increase the continuity on the Students' Council.
Lack of this much needed continuity is one of the greatest
problems of student government."
January Deadline on Nomination*
Red Cross Blood Donors Must Wait (or Appointment Cards
Clinic will inform students as to the time and date
that they are to go to the
clinic. A card will be sent
from the clinic with the information on it, and students
are requested not to go until
they have received such a
All students who signed up up to %
the early part of this week will
be accommodated by the end of
January. Since the Red Cross
makes out their mailing list two
weeks    in    advance    those    who
signed up at the end of this week
may have to wait until February.
All students should be accommodated by the end of that month.
Every consideration will be given
to students who specified the day
and hour which best suited them.
If any student cannot keep the
appointment he made, he should
phone the clinic, MArine 4048, and
make a new appointment.
Approximately 550 students have
signed their blood pledges to date.
The scoring in the faculty competition is as follows: Arts, 22 per
cent; Aggie, 21 per cent; Applied
Science, 19 per cent.
Men students will be excused
from COTC parades and women
students from war work if they
donate blood. Those wishing
leave should pick up their acknowledgement slip from the clinic after donation. Men turn this
in with their application for leave,
and women students hand theirs
in at the Dean of Women's office
or the gym.
Since UNTD members are behind in their training, no parades
can be cancelled because of blood
Ted Chambers, president of War
Aid Council, and organizer of the
drive, said, "I would like to express the appreciation of the Red
Cross for those who have signed
up to give their blood. The Red
Cross feels sure that these students will continue with their donations and bring some one else
with them each time."
The clinic is situated at 615 W.
"Do not forget your diets, or
your blood will be wasted,"
Chambers reminded.
Diet specifications appear elsewhere in this paper.
Creighton's plan is definite, but
he feels that he should hold his
plans until the campaign starts.
It is also believed that Junior
Member Allan Ainsworth will be
running for presidents the AMS.
However, no definite statement
concerning such a move has been
made aa yet.
Elections for president ol the
AMS will be held on Wednesday,
February 7, for treasurer on Wednesday, February 14, and for all
other members ' on Wednesday,
February 21.
Nominations are to be handed in
to the secretary of the AMS, Helen Morgan, by January 31.
A general assembly will be held
on each of the Mondays preceding
each election.
The elections are controlled by
the election committee, under the
chairmanship of Barbara Greene.
Les Raphael and Helen Morgan
are the other members of the committee.

Snowball' to Feature
• THE famed Deep River Boys
and an All-Star jazz group
were featured in the Jazz Society's
first big concert ot its short history Thursday noon in the Auditorium,
A capacity crowd cheered the
negro quintet to three encores and
the jam group played half an hour
overtime to please the jazz die-
hards' craving for more of that
real jazz.
Jack Cohen, MC of the event,
introduced the Deep River Boys
to the assembled gathering. They
are: Cameron Wllllams.planlst and
arranger, Rhett Butler, baritone,
Edward Ware, bass, Vernon Gardner, first tenor, and Oeorge Law-
son, second tenor. Lawson introduced the quintet's songs.
Their program included such
masterworks as Duke Ellington's
"Take the 'A' Train," the popular "Don't Fence Me In," a jlvy
version of "Lady Be Good," "Just
Can't See For Looking," a vocal
arrangement of Dave Rose's "Holiday for Strings," and a humorous
version of an old negro folk song
^Behind The Garden Wall."
Personnel  of  the  All-Star  jam
group was: Bob Cotton, tenor sax,
Chuch Barber, trumpet, Phil Nimmons, clarinet, Ronnie Birch, tenor and alto sax, Doug Parker, piano, Ches Cotter, electric qultar,
Percy Cutts, bass fiddle, Jack Cohen, drums, and Eleanor, vocals.
The All-Stars program included
"Honeysuckle Rose," "The Man I
Love," "I Never Knew," "On the
Sunny Side of the Street,' an unnamed jam tune, "Body And Soul"
"Flying Home," and an improvised
boogie woogie tune.
Outstanding for the jazzmen was
the work of Nimmons in his clarinet solos. He got the biggest hand
of the day for his two choruses on
"Flying Home." Chuck Barber's
"old hat" solos were also very popular with the jazz lovers.
When interviewed on the subject of jazz in the university,
George Lawson of the Deep River
Boys said, "I think that jazz
should be played and listened to
at a lot more of Canadian and A-
merican universities. It's a moral
boost to those who are interested
in all types of music. But I also
think that all of the other types
of music, both old and new,
should be stressed in extra-curricular activities."

Totem salesmen will be on the
campus selling books as usual next
week. Books will also be sold in
the Quad box-office at noon hours,
and at other hours of the day, too,

Student Council Passes
New URS Studio Budget
• COUNCIL HAS PASSED the grant necessary for the construction
of the new studios for the University Radio Society. The studios will
be situated in the old photography room in the south Brock basement.
The new studio will be constructed on similar lines to the new
CKWX studios. George Morris, accoustical engineer, who drew up the
plans for the downtown studio also has made plans for the URS.
It will take about a week fo complete the basic work, and when
construction is finished the studio will consist of one studio and the
control room. The studio will have double doors and will be of the most
modern accoustical design.
The control room will be separate, and will have a raised floor so
that the operators can see the whole floor of the studio.
The URS plans to put a public address system network into operation
as soon as the lines are made available. They will commence by broadcasting to the Brock lounge, the Caf, and possibly the Auditorium.
Eventually, they hope to Include the gymnasium, stadium, and tht
common rooms. The common room plans are subject to approval by
the administration.
Broadcasts will be made at noon hours and at such other times
as will not disturb the lectures. The general program service will put
into effect as soon as possible.
Since the studio will be of broadcast standard the URS hopes that
in the future, If the government will grant them a license, they will be
able to broadcast shows directly from the university.
• MANY PEOPLE believe the Allies are winning the war
militarily but losing it politically, said Peter Stursberg,
CBC correspondent, who spoke on "Politics and War in the
Mediterranean," at the Friday meeting of the Social Problems Club.
"The political situation in Italy rests on an enigma—the meaning of co-belligerency," said
Stursburg, while pointing out that
when the Allies signed with Bag-
dolio, nobody then knew and nobody yet knows the meaning of
the word.
He went on to give a short history of the present Italian government telling how Blnomi, supported by the leader of the six
political parties, decided in a
"smoke-filled room" to throw out
Stursberg described the food situation up until October, 1944,
when he left Italy. "Authorities
will even admit," he said, "that the
Romans are much worse off under
us than under the Germans as far
as food supplies are concerned."
"It Is ridiculous to call the black
market black when ft is the only
market," when rationing only allows a pound of meat for five persons every ten days and when It
is very difficult to get even that
small  amount legitimately.
The Italians feel that the Allied military currency is a type of
promisory note since the coins
have the four freedoms inscribed
on their backs, "freedom from
want," being taken to mean "freedom from .starvation."
That promise for adequate food
supplies has been broken in the
opinion of the Italians. Nor has
an attempt been made to alleviate it by the military command,
which will not give up the necessary trucks.
The main source of food to Romans, The Po Valley, Is still held
by the Germans. And the final
straw in the food situation is the
damage done to the transportation
systems by the Nazis. Not only
bridges were blown up but often
railway lines were blown every
twenty miles.
Although "freedom from want"
has not been fulfilled in Rome,
"freedom of speech is allowed and
each of the six political parties
has its own newspaper, ln which
the Allied Control Commission is
often criticized.
"It was a pathetic sight to see
the partisans, because they were
not wanted, dropped like old
shoes," stated Stursberg, who believes they should have been given
the chance to redeem themselves.
The purging of the Fascists and
collaborators   was   very   difficult
Stursberg . . .
. . . Speaks on Italy
because of the obstacles put In the
way of the Italian government by
the Allies. Stursberg commented that the lynching which
took place during the Caruso trial, which was the only major trial enacted while he was still in
Rome, was a result of a violent
reaction against these obstacles.
Stursberg said thnt good Italian officers could have helped the
Allies take Rome without a struggle. EDITORIAL PAGE

End of a Long Fight
After many years of bitter fights the
graduating class of this year has finally come
to an agreement with the administration on
the question of graduation fees. Subject to
approval of the Senate, students at UBC will
pay three dollars a year for graduation fees
as a part of their tuition fees. Artsmen and
Nurses then have their fees cut three dollars
and nine dollars respectively. Only the
Engineers are stuck with the original $15.
We suppose it' is just as good a compromise as could be devised. Those Artsmen
and Nurses who do graduate will save three
dosjars. Those who do not will be out three
dollars per year of attendance. It should
increase our graduating class. Neither the
administration nor the graduating class
should lose money by it. Some of our statistical economists might, if they drew a little
chart of the scheme, prove that the total
results are the same as under the old system.
The injustice is still there, for someone, 9
A real victory would have been establishment of the payments in lump sums at
graduation, rather in yearly additions to
fees. But as we said, it is a nice compromise.
Unconditional Surrender?
University students are, perhaps more
than most people, arm-chair strategists. As
such, they too return from the Christmas
holidays in a mood sobered by the surprising
resiliency of an ever-original enemy, the
sudden shocking realization that the Allies'
swift and sure march across France to the
German border might very well be reversed
despite the recently accumulated overwhelming superiority in men, arms and reserves on the western front.
It has well been pointed out that the
Germans are fighting to the bitter end simply because the United Nations have left them
no alternative. We said to the enemy, early
in the war, that we would accept nothing
less than "unconditional surrender". It was
a good thing that we should thus have steeled our determination to win or lose, with
no half-way measures. But this dictum was
based on two well-popularized facts that
Germany was not occupied completely after
the last war and therefore the Germans were
able to persuade each other that they had
not lost the war. This attitude, we thought,
was responsible for their renewed willingness to undertake war, whereas in effect it
was only one of a host of factors—and a
minor one at that—leading up to the present
conflict. Yet we are now allowing our desire to deal with this one small factor to
' interfere with our winning the war, for now
the Germans will fight till they collapse
completely. They WILL collapse eventually,
as far as their organized resistance goes, but
that will take so much longer if the mass of
Germans see no point in getting rid of their
Nazi leaders, if in fact they are compelled,
by a psychological inevitability, to make of
those leaders the heroes of what we fear may
turn out to be an underground resistance.
Since no one but a stable and representative German government will be able
to quell such a post-war Nazi movement, it
Ls extremely vital that our plans for fostering such a government be formulated and
adopted, so that we may cease unconsciously
to foster the Nazi movement in its own
Our plans for Germany must be a part
of our plans for ourselves, for the world as
a whole; hence such a step means that the
so-called "Big Three" must, for the sake of
a more effective prosecution of the war if
nothing else, make a beginning at an international organization of some sort. Such a
move, beyond our present position of "unconditional surrender", will hasten a victory
whose cost entitles it to be a prelude to
more than merely vain attempts at the
maintenance of military supremacy.
—from the McGill Daily.
Government Revision Difficult
Extremely difficult is the task of the
student representation committee which is
now investigating our student government
machinery. Their decisions are important.
Their judgment must be correct. To these
students falls the task of devising a Student
Council competent to govern the affairs of
UBC's expansion in the pos,t-war period.
Student government at UBC is a precious thing which most students regard as
just something to let other students worry
about. But when students realize that thefr
own planning of their affairs is the only
means of arriving at complete satisfaction,
our student government takes on a different
Few students realize that at many other
universities the faculties control student
affairs. At UBC we .have a minimum of
faculty control which acts as a good check
on student executives. In the majority of
cases, our Student Council decides the issue.
So far, the committee has decided in
favor of the system of government in which
a relatively small executive directs student
affairs, instead of a parliamentary type of
government in which a legislative house and
an executive work together. We wait for
further developments of our student representation committee, which must come soon
before AMS elections in February.
people and things
•   WE AT UBC are very inefficient hosts.
It is true that we take very good care of
the guests whom we invite to the campus,
but our treatment of unexpected guests is
very shoddy.
Sometimes they are welcomed by one or two of the
more enthusiastic students
or professors but more often
they are neglected entirely
and left to wander around
the campus by themselves.
Think particularly o f
the convalescing war veterans in the military hospital
at Union College as examples
of our neglect.
You have seen them wandering
around the campus. You have seen
their blue suits limping across the Mall.
You have seen them coming along the
path from Union College, their bodies
swinging between yellow slat-like
Yes, all of you have seen them.
But have you ever seen any of the students talking with them or walking with
them or showing them around the campus?
Have you ever seen any of them at games
in the Stadium or gym? Have you ever seen
them at pep-meets or functions in the auditorium?
These men are human beings.
More  than  that  they   are   intelligent
human beings and they enjoy entertainment
and they get bored with a dull, dreary,
day-in, day-out life.
The men over there have some entertainment. A couple of shows a week
are shown to them. Once a week they
are taken to the St. John's Club near
Shaughnessy military hospital.
Think of that.   The men have to be
taken down to a club in the city to get any
entertainment  other  than  two  movies  a
They are taken seven miles into the
heart of Vancouver in trucks when they
could be brought a couple of hundred yards
into the heart of the campus.
The men want to see the university.
They want to see a few games. They want
to make friends with the students.
We should at least meet these men
half-way in establishing a close friendship. We should follow the lead of
Gordon Bertram, president of the LSE,
in inviting them over to student entertainment features. We should follow
the lead of the Phratereans and the Red
Cross Corps in making regular visits to
the hospital.
We should follow the lead of these stu-
dents and increase our invitations so that
they might reach some degree of regularity.
You, as an individual student, should
establish a friendship with at least one of
these returned veterans.

the jam session
• THE GHOSTS of many of the
greatest names in jazz haunted
the University Auditorium on
Thursday. We had the privilege
of hearing at first hand what is
regarded by many as the "hottest"
jam session in this University's
Some of the finest spontaneous
inspiration In music has arisen
from gatherings such as these.
Beethoven and a band of his
friends would improvise on themes
for hours, each musician taxing
his creative ability , each artist
inspiring the other to new and
more intricate embellishments on
basic chord formations.
The jam session is no innovation
in the wprld of music. Many of
the most Important musical ideas
of Mozart, Haydn, and others became concrete realities during such
inspired moments. Of course the
advantage that Beethoven had over
Doug Parker, Phil Nimmons, or
Jackie Cohen was that he was not
restricted to the narrowing and »t
times fatal influence of the modern
song idiom and the monotony of
the dance band beat.
I definitely believe that much
can be accomplished in this idiom,
but it does not possess the permanence of the other mediums. The
most imposing battery of names
connected with this "session" assured this reviewer that he would
be "sent" out of this world. There
was also some obvious "corn".
"Corn", a descriptive word
peculiar to the modern world,
has been extracted from among
Us earthy synonyms and Is now
being used to Indicate cheap
Imitation or lack of taste in
music.   Some  of  the  soloists
played "com", at times, but the
general level of musical Ideas
was very high.
Perhaps the outstanding soloist
of the day was clarinetist Phil
Nimmons, a young man of most
amazing qualities. He has a superb
technique, beautiful phrasing, and
ideas that could easily rank in
with the greatest jazz musicians
of today. He has so many ideas
that at times he is too hasty in his
development of them, and consequently there appears a certain
lack of coherence.
It is not that his solos become
too confusing, but rather that they
possess an overabundance of ideas
that   the  average  cannot   absorb.
He worries about his tone and that
causes a certain amount of tenseness  that   is  overcome  when  he
loses himself in the music.   The
most perfectly constructed solo of
the day was definitely Phil's conception of "Body and Soul".
Of the many sollsts, none attained the easy simplicity of
style exemplified by the trumpet playing of Chuck Barber.
It Is a pleasure to hear him
play.   The solos were full of
good  humour  and  a  certain
carefree manner all his own.
That fine guitar man, Ches Cotter, was perhaps closest to Barber
in his ability to convey a simple
yet   beautifully   constructed   solo.
Ches   is   noted   for   his   driving
rhythm and punchy riffs.  His solo
work was refreshing and contained
many excellent phrases.
The bass player supplied a
steady, satisfactory beat, but he
had a tendency to play out of tune
in the upper reaches of his instrument. The drumming of Jack
Cohen was one of the outstanding
features of the session.
Jack has improved tremendously
since last year and shows remarkable ingenuity in his playing. He
is doing more brush work than he
used to and has overcome that
tendency to speed, iHs drumming
bas more purpose to it in contrast
with its former loudness and lack
of meaning. It is a great credit
to him.
Beyond a doubt the most sophisticated and thoughtful playing
came from the fingertips of pianist
Doug Parker. He achieved that "out
of this world" quality that marked
him immediately as the most musically intellectual of the Jazz
fiends. He uses a clever form of
figured bass that serves as a driving force to his right hand embellishments. '
Doug ls definitely the philosopher of the piano; keen,
alert and sensitive to the subtle
twists of musical thought. I

Sciencemen Take Dim
View of Crest Mystery
• DOC MORTON, EUS president, is tearing madly around
with a worried look on his face and an accumulation of
dust on his beloved red sweater. The worried look comes
from his concern for the now famous Science crest, and the
dust comes from the attics he has been crawling through
in search of it.
The loss was first noticed when
the decorations committee of the
Great Engineers' Trek started to
line up the decorations for the
Commodore for the night of February 8.
Realizing that the loss was the
greatest blow to the Faculty of

that the sign be returned immediately if not at once. The Aggie
politely drew out the 1942 non-

Foiled, Doc departed.
Next, the indomitable EUS president climbed into the musty attic

"The entertainment there is really first rate, and afterwards they
have a dance—that is, for those
who can get around," he smiled,
patting his crutch.
"Time really drags during the
day though, especially fo: those
who can't take P.T."

"Any kind of entertainment would
really go over fine, because the

Allergy "Matter
Of Inheritance"
Says Scientist
• SCHENECTADY, Jan.  20-(B
UP)—Allergy  to  ragweed  or
other things is a "matter of inheritance"—but that does not mean
that an unfortunate individual is
sensitive to the same things a relative is. So stated Dr. Kenneth E.
Crounse of Albany, N.Y., in charge
of the allergy clinic at Albany
Hospital, in a General Electric
Science Forum address here.
"Perhaps you are allergic to ragweed; your relatives may have
been allergic to animals, or foods,
or what-not, and having perhaps
hives or asthma, Instead of hay-
fever," said Dr. Crounse.
"The allergic-tendancy is inherited by some members of allergic
families, the individual person demonstrating any of the manifestations of allergy and from any
cause, not necessarily the same
manifestation of the same cause.
Biology is fickle and confusing at
Discussing the subject further,
Dr. Crounse said:
"If a child's parents both have
come from allergic families, he
will probably prove to show some
allergic disturbance before he ls
10 years old. On the. other hand,
If only one parent was from an
allergic family, the child may be
10 years or older before demonstrating that he is himself allergic.
And, of course, not all children
inherit the tendency; even in allergic families some children will
be entirely nonallergic.
According t> Dr. Crounse, conditions included under the term
allergy are hay fever (pollinosls),
asthma, allergic rhinitis, or so-
called perennial hay fever from
dusts, animals, and so on; gastrointestinal allergy from foods, and
colitis, migraine headaches, infantile eczema, hives, drug allergy.
He said that the first heavy frost
will kill the ragweed plant, which
has for a month been sending its
pollen into the air in perhaps
greater numbers than ever.
"Ragweed is not alone in causing our trouble," Dr. Crounse declared, pointing out that 90 per
cent of the ivxpulatlon is entirely
unaffected l\ air-borne pollen,
while the other 10 per cent is ln
greater or lesser degree sensitive,
or allergic. "This is the third and
last of our annual pollen seasons.
The first begins almost before the
frost is out of the ground, ln
March, when the tree bud produce
their pollen. Then the second, ar
grass, season begins in late April
or early May, when the various
grasses mature and produce their
pollens until late July. Finally,
the third, or ragweed, season
comes about August 15.

Students are urged to share their

willing to do this should get in

Specially needed are the textbooks for English I. This course
has had to be re-arranged because
of the shortage of certain of the
required reading books. The reading of those books which are unobtainable has been postponed in
the hope that students will lend

Otherwise, the boys are having
no trouble at all, outside of the
fact that they are attempting to
cover two terms work in one.
Despite misunderstandings, lack
of books, and a heavy course, they
are all grateful for the opportunity that they are receiving.
D. J. Rowse, ex-Bombardier, expressing their general opinion,
says, "The course ls tough, alright, but it sure is worth it."

appreciation for the opportunity
that the University is offering
them to complete their years work

• IF THERE is any game in this
world that I would rather not
have anything to do with, it is
this sport called ruddy rugger. It
is such a game as most people
have no truck with, seeing as how
anybody who does have any truck
with it usually ends up looking
like he was run over by a truck.
However, we
must have English Rugby be-
cause some
good old boy
from the Old
Land invented
it back in 1606,
or was it 1607?
Anyhow, the
game was invented. Seeing
as how nobody
had the brains
to invent Canadian Football in
those early days, all the school
boys in England had to be content with rugger.
Besides, even the Canadians
themselves couldn't Invent the
game In those early days, seeing as how they were too busy
fighting the Injuns and such.
And so it was, that when all the
fnumphs and galumphs in this nation finally gave up trying to beat
the injuns at their own racket,
they found rugger the only game
that was already Invented, except
for soccer. Of course, none of the
young fnumphs paid much attention to soccer seeing as how it
wasn't rough enough.
(You must remember that, at
this point in history, the Canadians had just finished with the injuns, and they were still thirsting
for blood.)
So all the older fnumphs (such
as you see in the vicinity of Cap-
llano Stadium every Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock sharp), turned
to soccer while the younger
fnumphs adopted this game called
It was really a catastrophe
when all this happened, far the
younger   fnumphs   soon   got
themselves Into a rut  which
was almost as bad as the one
that the older fnumphs were
already In.
But along came another character who tossed a couple of hot
coals into the rut and made several   of   the   younger    fnumphs
jump for joy when he invented
the game of Canadian Football.
And so it is that we now have
two games between which to
choose, except that, now that there
is a war on, we have only one to
choose from — English Rugby.
But both factions are still kept
happy, for, in order to appease
the grid experts, we still have our
good, old Intramural touch football.   Oh happy day!

lost close tilts at the King Ed house of basketball. In the
last Senior B game before the playoffs, the Blue and Gold
quintet was defeated by the first place Higbie squad 33-29.
[n an Inter B semi-final contest, the 'Bugs lost to Stacys by
a narrow 33-31 margin. ————————_
It was the 'Bugs that seemed to
be the original hard-luck club
when fate in the form of one Hank
Watson stepped in to swish the
winning basket in the dying
seconds of the game. The game
was close all the way as both
teams matched basket for basket
throughout the / forty minutes of
Doug Davidson  played another   fine   game,   coming
through with 11 markers. The
rest of the scoring was fairly
evenly divided among the rest
of the team. Watson and Don

the Shoemen with eight apiece.
'As tiie series is two out of three,
the boys still have hopes of coming back to take the next two to

off to a rather slow start, finding
themselves on the short end of a

quintet in a two-game series here
at MacArthur Court this weekend.
The Webfeet will be rested after
their arduous pre-season tour of

John Warren expects that his team

be stopped.
Warren expects to start Dick

Bob Hamilton and Jim Bartelt
at guards.   Washington State's
lineup  will  probably  Include:
Jorrlson and Gregg, forwards,
Hansen,   center;   and   Rennick

• VARSITY HOOP enthusiasts will have plenty to yell
about tonight when the roaring Lauries Pie-Rates enter the
gates of UBC to tackle the Varsity Thunderbirds on the
campus in a basketball battle slated for 8 o'clock.
In their last meeting more than a week ago, the Birds
managed to stave off a last-quarter drive by the Pirates to
notch a 68-65 triumph at the King Edward casaba courts.
Since that contest, however, both
clubs have played one other
league fixture. Both were run off
at King Ed on Wednesday night,
end both games were literally
slaughters. The Thunderbird quintet trounced the UBC Chiefs to
the tune of 62-39, while the Pirates
came back in the second tilt by
handing the cellar-dwelling Higbies a 51-26 trouncing.
The Laurie crew looked mighty
sweet as they worked the ball
around the listless Miltonmen, and
swished the hoops with practically
no trouble at all. And it all boils
down to the fact that the Pirates
will be gunning for the Birds when
they meet tonight.
Meanwhile, the Thunderbirds
have done a litUe brushing up on
their play-making, themselves. The
Blue and Gold crew gave evidence
of this Wednesday night as they
concentrated fire on the the short
setup shots while their opponents,
the UBC Chiefs, popped long shots

Among the greatly improved

in recent Thunderbird battles. The
former hooper netted three out of

Clarkson has made news with his

which has kept him among the

worth watching in tonight's tilt.

Big-Time Operators Crack Down
On Small-Time Hoopla Racket
• NEW YORK-(BUP)-"Legit-
imate Bookies" across the
United States basketball front are
apparently on the prowl for those
"fly-by-night" gamblers who are
casting suspicion on the hoop game.
One big-time operator from the
Mid-West predicts that "cheap
chiselers and crooks" may be the
ruination of basketball. He claims
that their "spread quotations" and
attempts to fix games may spoil
a perfectly clean and legitimate
sport. ,
The operator goes on to explain
that there is no connection between the big-time bookies and
the "small-fry" who are trying to
muscle in with underhand methods.
The small-time "spread bet"
bookies wcrk as follows:
Say there is a difference between
Team A <nd Team B of seven
points. A spread bookie will
stretch these seven points to a
six-seven-e,ght-point margin. The
man bettinf on the underdog team
&wne 3>n!
has to be within five points of the
favorites to win—six points gives
him a tie, while the original seven
points loses not only for him, but
also for the man who is betting
against him. The favorite bettor
must win by nine points to collect
while eight points gives him a tie.
Many of the "heavy money"
games have ended with the bookie
taking all and leaving nothing for
the guys who put up the money.
Legitimate bookies are trying to
pound this point home, pointing
out that under their system nothing more than a legitimate percentage is collected for placing the
They also point out that no legitimate or honest bookie will accept
a spread bet—so let that be your
cue, fans, when you get ready to
lay folding money on your favorite. If the bookie wants you to
place a spread bet—backwater. For,
sa the legitimate operators point
out, that kind of bet is only for
the suckers.
