Form Co-ed Honor Sorority
BySHRDLU
• FRANKLY,   have   you
got religion? Well, if you
haven't you're not much different from the majority of
students on this campus.
Why does the varsity man shun
the church, stand aloof from religion?
By religion we mean "a specific
system of belief In God with doctrines concerning Him and formal
rites to be observed in Worship
of Him." This definition represents the church as it ls known
to most students.
SEASONS
In the opinion of the writer there
are several reasons why this attitude has been adopted by the
large portion of modern college
youth. First, it may be said that
the association with the rational
thought and scientific knowledge
of the university tends to break
down any religious sentiment that
had been built around childhood
conceptions.
When a child U young It is
necessary to explain religion to
him by means of dogmatic myths
and doctrine. Consequently upon
reaching the age of high school
graduation, his opinions on religion
are still based on the necessarily
dogmatic indoctrination of childhood.
Thus, his outlook towards the
ehorch and religion la as unformed and adolescent as his opinions
are on most things. If he had been
allowed to continue thinking by
himself he would probably have
moulded these myths of childhood
Into a proper basis for an Intelligent religious belief.
But he is not allowed to do this.
On his entrance Into University he
contacts rationalism and scientific
method with the result that his
childhood myths, on which his conceptions of religions were based,
are shaken and then shattered by
the explosion of his indoctrinated
beliefs.
For example, at home his particular creed was portrayed as being the only road to heaven, but
in the lecture room it is made apparent to him that there are other
cults and creeds equally Insuring
of salvation as his. And so the
University student, with his religious frame of reference broken,
adopts the apathetic attitude of
the sceptic.
MATERIAL WEALTH
A second reason and logical outcome of his scepticism, indeed of
any temporal education, is the
tendency to measure the value of
all things by their ability to produce material wealth. As a result
any doctrine which does not contribute to this end or stands as
a barrier to the attainment of these
ends is discarded as being an Impediment in the highly competitive world. Religion is relegated
to a position where it does not
pffect his personal decisions.
• ONE of the appeals of religion
to  many  church-goers  is  the
opportunity it offers them to associate themselves with a group
and to become an active member
or a petty office holder. This appeal of the church is largely lost
on University students who are
constantly being offered many opportunities of this kind. They prefer to sing in the chorus of the
Mus. Soc. rather than in the church
choir for instance.
AMATEUR
Suppose the student does go to
church. What dc*3 he hear? Very
often he is subjected to economics
from an amateur economist, history hopelessly biased. He hears
an interpretation of current events
from an armchair strategist; he
hears politics by a man who is
not supposed to be a politician.
How can he help but contrast
the sermon, delivered by the well-
meaning but unspecialized minister with lectures delivered nt the
University by men who are experts
in these subjects? His suspicions
that the pulpit is fallible are confirmed.
The church has attempted to
bold the Interest of Its attenders
by entering fields In which It
thinks thc interests of its members
lie. In most cases the effort has
been entirely lost on the student.
Religion has been discarded by
the masses as the road to paradise
and other routes have been chosen.
Men today have faith in the power of the state to legislate them into that illusive land of "Plenty for
All;" political creeds and cults,
complete with dogma, doctrines,

Arts-Aggie Pow Wow Thursday
Bare-backed Maidens Play
At Pep Meet Today, Noon
By ANNE DEWDNEY
•   SIX SLEEK brown-skinned maidens will beat out,torrid
rhythms today at the Arts-Aggie pep meet in the Auditorium at 12:30. These bare-backed beauties, led by Minnie
Ha Ha Moxon, will stage a true tribal war dance to the music
of an all tom-tom band.
The costumes are actual reproductions of those worn by the
now extinct Susque-woo-woo tribe
of Lower Basin Street They have
been reproduced at great cost and
due to the scarcity of materials
may prove to be a bit scant.
TOTIE
It has been rumored that tho
set decorations were purloined
away from the Pub as Totie has
been missing since Thursday and
loyal Pubsters have searched for
him in vain.
The Arts-Aggie pep meet will,
serve as a mere introduction to
the fun and hilarity coming this
Thursday night, November 25,
when the two faculties combine In
their annual formal. Teepees and
tom-toms will decorate the Commodore In true Indian motif.
Tickets will be on sale today
and may be purchased from the
Mamooks at the box office In the
Quad for S3.00 per couple.
Dinner will be served at the
dance and fantastic favors have
been promised by Dave Housser,
director. The orchestra has not
yet been announced.
PATRONS
President and Mrs. Klinck will
sponsor the formal, aided by Dean
and Mrs. D. Buchanan, Dean
Dorothy Mawdsley, and Dean F.
N. Clement.
The formal will begin at 9 p.m.
i.nd will last until 1.
Author,
Lecturer
Here Dec. 6
• DYSON  CARTER,  author of Russia's Secret
Weapon" and prominent
speaker over the CBC network will address university
students in an LSE pass presentation on Monday, December 6.
Mr. Carter, who has done a
great deal to popularize science Ln
Canada is coming to Vancouver to
address the Boilermaker's Union.
New Chair
Suggestion of
Neurologist
• ENGLISH    Neurologist
Count   di   Valvasone
should be credited with a-
rousing the interest in British Columbia's Physical
Medicine which resulted in
Sir Victor Sassoon's donation
of $25,000 to establish a
chair of physical' medicine
here, according to Dr. Arthur
Paskins, city naturopathist.
Dr. Paskins suggests ' that the
value of the proposed chair would
be in the possibility for re-establishment in civil life of many war-
injured who would otherwise be
left to suffer or become a pub'ic
charge.
Physical medicine instruction,
which would make this University a pioneer on the continent,
involves the treatment of disease
by non-medical means such as
heat treatments, massage, hydrotherapy, exercise, and radiation
treatments.
Dale Brown,
Secretary
Of ISS, Here
• MR.   DALE   BROWN,
Canadian  secretary  o f
the European Student Relief
fund and acting representative of the Canadian Committee of International Student Servise, visited the
:ampus on Monday.
Mr. Brown came to the campus
ln order to meet students and student groups. He presented a picture of, the work the ISS Is doing
In the world and assisted the War
Aid In the organization of their
finance drive, probably to be held
on the campus some time in February.
In brief, the ISS is a world wide
organization which functions for
the purpose of relieving suffering
amonfl students across the world.
The program was as follows:
Monday, 12:30, in the double committee room, a joint meeting of
Pan Hell and Inter-Frat Council.
Monday. 5:30, Supper in tho caf
for ISS committee, War Aid Council and Council members, to be
followed by a Council meeting.
Tuesday, 12:30, in the double
committee room, meeting of representatives of the various clubs
on the campus.

Sororities
Bid Again
January
• OPEN bidding for sororities will commence the
first week in January, Sylvia
Anderson, president of the
Panhellenic Association announced Monday.
All girls who have 15 units are
eligible for registration. The fee
is $1.00. The bidding will take
place some time in January. There
will be no teas or rushing parties.
This bidding is for the girls who
are from out of town and did not
want to join until they knew the
girls better and for those who
withdrew their registration in October. Further announcements will
be made in the next issue of the
Ubyssey.
Plim Honor Group  XmaS WOrk
Sign-Up
Ends Thur.
•   CHRISTMAS work registration   will   end   on
Thursday, November 25.
Because of slowness of students
in registering at the University
Employment Bureau, the time for
registering has been extended. Up
to Monday noon, there had been
I 500 students registered as opposed
j to the Bureau's goal of twelve
hundred students.
PERMITS
Last week the downtown newspapers announced that the system
of obtaining permits for part-time
work had been done away with,
but this does not apply to Vancouver. Local National Selective
Service officials are continuing
this system in co-operation with
the Post Office and the department stores.
That means that students wishing
to get part-time Christmas work
will do best to register with the
University Employment Bureau as
they have direct contact with the
Selective Service offices downtown.
READ NOTICES
Students are urged to read the
regulations in the Brock and the
Quad. Information that they should
also know is the time that they
are available for work. (Last examination day is December 18).
And whether they wish to work
from December 27 to 31.
Employment Bureau hours are
12:30 to 1:30 and 3:30 to 4:30.

Urged For
"RC" Ball
• THIS year students will
have a greater voice in
the plans for the Red Cross
Ball, Les Raphael, representative for IFC, announced
Monday. Every major student activity will appoint a
representative to form an executive to help with plaas
for the Ball.
"This year we hope to have
greater campus participation in the
Red Cross Ball," said Raphael "and
we think that these clubs can
sound out student opinion.
"The Red Cross Ball, is a charitable organization, it should have
the fullest possible support."
The executive committee of the
Red Cross Ball, will hold a meeting Wednesday, 12:30 in Arts 204.
Admit Only
400 Jews
To Canada
• LESS than 400 Jewish
refugees able to escape
from Nazi Germany were
admitted into Canada by
1939 in comparison to 15,000
taken into the city of Shanghai alone Mrs. Laura Jamieson, CCF, MLA, revealed at
an International Service Day
speech addressed to the Cosmopolitan Club on November 17.
Mrs. Jamieson, who is a member of the Canadian Refugee C6m-
mittee, added that several million
refugees had fled to the Soviet
Union, where they enjoyed the
rights and privileges of Soviet citizens.
RACIAL PREJUDICE
"Concerning refugees af all nationalities, Palestine has accepted
280,000, the United States 268,000,
and Canada 15,000, stated Mrs.
Jamieson.
Racial prejudice was the topic
of the latter half of the speech.
Mrs. Jamieson spoke of the plight
of student refugees and prisone d
of the Gestapo.

New Pen
For UBC's
Beasties
• THE STADIUM sheep have a
new  pen.    It  was  completed
last week on the site of the old one
in order to arrest further killing
of the sheep by prowling dogs .Altogether six sheep have been killed.
The new pen has barbed wire
protection for the three remaining
sheep, and vermin poison has been
set clown outside it.
The sheep, joint property of the
Department of Bacteriology, the
Connaught Laboratories, and thc
Provincial Health Laboratory, are
used as sources of blood cells for
bacteriological tests.
Mulvin
Directs
Planning
• AT an inaugural meeting
held at the home of Dean
D. M. Mawdsley Sunday
evening, plans were laid for
the formation of an honorary women's fraternity, as a
counterpart of Sigma Tau
Chi, men's honorary fraternity on the campus.
Male representatives on Student
Council during the summer proposed the idea of starting such a
group and Mary Mulvin, last year's
president of WUS, now doing postgrad work, was appointed to investigate similar organizations and
the feasability of inaugurating one
at UBC.
QUALIFICATIONS
As yet, the number of girls sleeted to join the organization Is incomplete, but fourteen women attended the first meeting. Qualifications upon which election will be
based are scholarship, leadership,
and service to the university.
A second class average is necessary, and proof of leadership ability must be available, such as
election to various executive positions on the campus.
DR. KLINCK APPROVES
Pres. L. S. Klinck was approached by Mary Mulvin, and Dean
Mawdsley, and gave his approval
of the plans to date.
A committee was appointed by
Mary to draw up a constitution
and decide upon a name and formal purpose for the organization,
and future meetings will decide
upon the suggestions.
It* is expected that after the
necessary period of time, the group
will affiliate with the Mortarboard,
international honorary sorority for
women displaying outstanding
scholarship and leadership ability.
When a definite plan of aims
and purposes has been drawn up,
it will be submitted to Student
Council far approval.
Honorary faculty members who
have been elected to the group
and who will act In an advisory
capacity ln election of new members and In the general conduct
of business are Dean D. M. Mawdsley, Dr. Isabel Machines, and Dr.
Joyce Hallamore.
Selection of the women eligible
for membership was done by Mary
Mulvin and Dean Mawdsley. The
list of girls invited to join, while
not yet complete, include Phyllis
Bishop, Evaline Morton, Joan
Fischer, Bernice Williams, Barbara
Greene, Lulla Ireland, Barbara
Macpherson, Sylvia Anderson, Lois
Reld, Margaret Reid, Wilma Smith,
Brenda Goddard, and Helen Welch.
It is expected that other members
will be invited within the next
week when scholarship averages
have been checked.
To Debate
European
Integration
• LAST meeting in 1943 of
the Parliamentary Forum will be held at 12:30,
Thursday, November 25 in
Arts 100.
The question to be debated is
"Resolve that upon the successful
conclusion of the war, the European nations be integrated into a
United States of Europe, and that
the constitutional government of
the United European countries be
modeled after the government of
the United States of America.
TWO  ARGUMENTS
Jim Wilson, vice-president of the
Forum, suggested two points of
departure for any student who may
wish to debate at Thursday's meeting.
Pro: An intefrated continent
would do much to further the
economic expansion of Europe.
Con: A United States of Europe
would Infringe on the sovereign
rights of the individual nations
concerned.
The principle speakers will be

THE    UBYSSEY

Faculty Or University Spirit
A statement which seemed to confound
members of Students' Council when it was
uttered by a member of the executive of one
of the undergraduate faculty organizations,
but which invites campus consideration, concerned that bedraggled subject of student
spirit.
While we do not believe in harrying a   ,
subject   continually,   we   do   believe   that
certain remarks which were made should be
presented to the students in order to discover their opinions on the matter.
In the past, it has been the belief that
if we can strengthen the spirit in the individual faculties, we shall have a working
basis upon which to build interest in the
university as a whole.
The aforementioned student, however,
disagreed with this view. He maintained
that students became imbued with the pride
of belonging to the Arts Faculty, or the
Science Faculty, and the fact that primarily
he was a member of the University of British .
Columbia was apt to be ignored.
In support of his argument, he stated
that, at pep meets for instance, students
eagerly participated in their faculty yells,
but when the university yells are proposed
they fall flat because of lack of interest and
support.
""* He also called attention to the fact that
certain of the faculty sweaters bear no indication of the fact that the faculty is at the
University of B.C. They are red and white,
or blue and white—they do not even have
the university colours or emblem.
Here, he says, is proof of the fact that
faculty loyalty seems to be placed above
university loyalty.
Division of the university students into
faculties is inevitable. It is also valuable as
a means of finer organization of the students.
But the segregation of students and the promotion of interest in that segment should
not be considered an end in itself. Rather,
it should be a means to the end of enriching
the university with the wholehearted, unified support of all sections.
The cry is forever being raised, "What's
the matter with the students? They have no
spirit" They DO have spirit, but this student claims that the spirit has been misdirected.
Inter-faculty co-operation is not nonexistent. We do not wish to convey that
impression. The Mile of Pennies is an example of brilliant co-operation. But there
certainly is room for improvement.
Fundamentally, according to this student, the primary question to be answered
is not whether you are a member of the
Arts or Science Faculties, but whether you
are a member of the University of British
Columbia.
Whieh do you think is more important?
Dale Brown
Mr. Dale Brown, Canadian Secretary
of the International Student Service committee arrived on the campus yesterday to
bring to UBC the news of the work of the
committee and the causes for which the
Service was established.
The UBYSSEY wishes to express its
apologies to Mr. Brown and to the students
on the campus committee for the fact that
the publicity arranged for the occasion was
not published in the last issue. Because the
date of his arrival was indefinite, the story
was held until late, and difficulties arising
at the press office prevented its being
published.
ISS is one of the most worthy respons
ibilities undertaken by students. It is not
merely the responsibility of students on this
campus, but that of students at universities
ail over the world. Support of tKis cause
is essential to relieve the suffering of fellow students in the oppressed countries.
ihe number of stories of the hardships
which those students have courageously endured is infinite. We must realize the sacrifices which they have been called upon to
make, and our extreme good fortune in
escaping similar trials.
Mr. Brown is speaking to all organizations on the campus. Let us assure him of
our heartiest co-operation and support in the
valuable work which he represents.
• The Graduates1 Corner
...by Christy McDevitt
•    DEATH   IS   ALWAYS    attended   by
desolation.
The morning I went out to Oakalla
Prison to watch a man die, the dawn spewed
forth in a welter of forbidding mist.
A chill wind blustered across the lowlands and the mass of gray buildings housing those who carried out their own desires
without regard for law, resembled ghost
castles squatted in the gloom.
The guard at the outer gate examined
my pass and grunted me through. My pass
was a small black-bordered card which informed those wishing to know such things
that I was invited to witness the execution of
At the door of the prison another guard
looked over my credentials. He was a cheerful ruffian.
"In time for the party, eh reporter," he
quipped.
I smiled wanly and passed through. Two
fellow-reporters joined me inside. We chatted a moment and then repaired to the little
room where a group of city detectives sat.
In here we talked shop. There was an
atmosphere of tension in the room. It pervaded the whole building. You felt a cold
chill chasing through your blood and occasionally your heart skipped a beat and
brought a slight gasp in your throat.
With the two other reporters I went out
to the men's room. Here we produced our
whiskey and, in an effort to ease our nervousness, drank heartily.
The light changed from a slate gray to
a pale yellow. Distinctly, from a distance, I
heard a dog bark. I thought of warm firesides, soft breathing, morning dew on the
grass, violin music —.
We went back to the little room. We
all were uneasy. In a few moments a guard
poked his head through the open doorway.
"Alright, boys," he muttered. "Let's go
in."
We followed him out. Through another
iron-barred door and we relinquished our
austere cards to a hawk-eyed watcher.
Silently, for the whole building was still
as a tomb, we walked after our guide. In
a moment we were in a little room where
death waited patiently in the gruesome
atmosphere.
I felt strangely calm. I knew that in a
very short time I was going to stand there
and watch a man die. I tried to think of
something else but always my mind jerked
me back to that one stark, bitter, horrible
fact.
The room was small. A strong white
light burned from the ceiling. Beside it hung
a bright yellow' rope, a loop at the end
thrown over a lever which arose from the
floor. I noted the crack in the boards which
was the trapdoor and then I took my position beside the police and my fellow reporters about ten feet from the tawny rope.
A long minute passed. We were silent.
Then, from the stone corridor, came the soft
flick-flick of slippered feet shuffling toward
death. The noise was muted even in the face
of what was to happen and I wanted terribly
to shout some mad expression to break the
spell of stillness.
Then the procession entered the room.
The victim, a slender Negro, was in the
centre of a little group. He appeared to be
the calmest man in the room.
He was dressed in a denim shirt, open
at the throat; a pair of denim trousers and
on his feet were dark felt slippers. He took
his place, guided by the hangman, and stood
directly over the trapdoor. I didn't want to
look at him but he glanced at us as we stood
there and then he spoke.
"How many of you," he asked in his soft,
musical voice, "will promise to meet me in
the land where I am now going?"
We remained silent. He started to ask
us individually, nodding from one to another
along the row.s The hangman meanwhile
was busy. He strapped the victim's legs.
The arms already were tied behind his back.
I started to scribble hastily on a wad of
paper. I didn't want to meet his eyes. When
I heard his voice muffled I looked up. The
black cloth that had been resting on the
lever was draped over the man's head. He
was still mutterirfg something. He started
gently to pray and I saw the hangman drop
the noose deftly over his head and around
his neck.
The muffled voice grew weaker. I
watched the knees of the hooded figure, for
it is always the knees which give out first
when the mind fully realizes that death is
near.
His legs were firm. His face was raised
toward the ceiling. He prayed fervently but
with a sincerity that was touching.
The hangman stepped back, took a
quick glance at the motionless figure, pulled
swiftly on the lever and the body plummeted from sight. The rope swayed back and
forth.  We filed out.
The rest is silence.

By J. T. SCOTT
• .SIR VICTOR Sassoon's $25,000
gift to the University ls a philanthropic gesture which should
not be passed over lightly. The
Senate has been considering the
matter for the last four months,
but it is only recently that students
heard of the proposed physical
medicine chair.
Undoubtedly there are many advantages in favor of establishing
physical medicine here. The
science has great possibilities for
the civil life rehabilitation of the
war-injured.
Civilians would also benefit from
the scheme. Sassoon, it is reported,
i.s ready to invent millions in spas
for this province. The tourist business would be increased.
Considering the matter from the
point of view of this University,
however, it is my opinion that addition of a chair of physical medicine would make UBC a lop-sided
institution.
We need so many other departments, faculties, chairs, that
addition of physical medicine
would present the curious picture
of an unbalanced university.
We need Law. We need Medicine. We need other faculties too
numerous to mention. We need to
build up the few departments we
have now.
The $25,000, the adminstration
says, will not be sufficient to establish physical medicine perm-
enantly, but will merely give it a
good start.
The government will be paying
money into physical medicine when
i*. is needed elsewhere. Expenditures were reduced in many cle-
•partments this year.
If physical medicine is as necessary as everyone seems to think
it is, let Sassoon give his money
to a more wealthy university than
UBC. Let him give his money to
a university which is already established. Or let him give enough
to support physical medicine here
permanently.
I hope that the B. C. government
does not sacrifice its university
for monetary reasons.
There is no other university on
this continent or in the British
Empire that has a chair of physical
medicine.  Why pick on UBC?

• Return of One
Man's Opinion
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
is written by last year's editor-in-
chief, Andy Snaddon, who Is visiting the coast on sick leave from
the army.
O IN MY HAPPY days as a campus scribe there was one thing
which I swore I would never do
and that was that if I ever returned
to the campus I positively would
not write a guest column. So when
Madam Editor kindly (and probably just to be polite, or are we
underset again?) asked me to perform the time-honored chore, I
started out to play coy.
It became apparent that she
would not insist so I quickly gave
In to no persuasion at all and
found myself once again staring
at a typewriter with the blank

In five folios' is nothing new to

council will testify.
ESSAY FEATURE
Qne of the first things I ever
wrote for the Ubyssey was a feature story on term essays, now,
three years later I find that the
campus is still afflicted with thesa
Impositions and it has occured to
me that it would do no harm to
write on them again, Insofar as
three years of experience might
well be passed on to those who are
faced with them for the first time.
Term essays, may be easily divided into two types. First, the
straight book review, and secondly,
the essay based on research
through many books and articles
on an assigned topic.
NO TERRORS
Dealing with the book review, I
can safely say that it holds no
terrors for the initiated. I can
recommend no better system than
that employed by my playmate
MacMillan, one-time scion of the
Radio Society. I think it is safe
to say that MacMillan never read
a book. In fact some people went
so far as to doubt that MacMillan
could read at all. I would like to
deny this as I have frequently
seen him perusing racing forms
and copies of "Salacious Stories".
Upon having been assigned a
book review Mac would carefully
draw a ring upon some convenient
calendar, around the date it was
due. Thus having it firmly fixed
in his mind, he would hike up
Io the library and draw the book,
which ho left in the Radio studios
and promptly forgot about.
The day before the task had to
be handed in, MacMillan would
again head into Miss Lanning'^
fortress and would avail himself
of large volumes of book reviews.
Perhaps some of you younger campus folk have not discovered these.
Yet in our own library, free to
ell, are professional criticisms of
the books which have been written
since the turn of the century. Why
should you sweat and worry when
someone else has already done the
chore?
WELL-WRITTEN, TOO
Therein MacMillan would get the
gist of the book in question, criticisms (well-written) and some of
the personal history of the author.
Then returning to the Radio
rooms he would pick up the book
and drop it on the floor, so that
it would land opened out. He
would then pick up the volume
and select a quote from the page
which was opened out. Repeating
the performance several times and
noting the page his work was done.
From here on MacMillan wa^ only
interested in putting the material
together in such a manner as to
ensure continuity. Thus was a
book review completed.
PROFESSORS
The second type, or research essay, is more of a problem. Professors will invariably suggest a
long line of books to read forgetting the fact that students have
a social life and extra-mural life
which would be interfered wit.i
it they were to spend much time
reading books.
Now there are two things which
we must consider. The first is just
a strong suspicion on my part, that
professors haven't read half the
books they suggest that students
should battle through. The second
is that professors are intensely
human souls and they like their
own opinions very much.
Therefore, my seekers after higher knowledge, it is a simple matter to obtain all the books suggested and a few extra of your own
choosing and to select from each a
quote or two. Quotes are always
impressive, so if you cannot find

one just say "as Winston Churchill once said" and then write something that sounds as if Churchill
should have said and forgot to.
No professor will admit that he
cannot recognize a Churchill quot.3
so he will not question it.
The next thing to do is to understand the prof's feeling on the
subject and to write your essay
from his point of view. If possible
just repeat in your own words
what he has told you in class. This
will class you in his estimation
as a real thinker, as a serious student with sound ideas (why not?
They are his ideas).
INDIGESTION?
Finally, he will probably have
the assistant mark the damn thing
anyhow and the assistant will give
you your marks, or subtract them,
depending on how his digestion
has been treating him and there
ia nothing you can do about it.
Many an essay which got a first
class in 1939 will get a low second
when little brother turns it in in
1944.
However, always avoid reading
the assigned books, they will only
confuse you with the ideas advanced in them.

'Black And White9 Animal
Found Exploring Science
By JOHN GREEN
*   A SMALL black and white animal,  genus  Mephitis
Mephitica, was found exploring a trash basket in the
Applied Science building last week.
At first there were attempts to
prove that the rodent was either
a rat or a guinea-pig, but exponents of this point of view were
soon silenced by a nauseating
whiff.
SCIENCEMAN?
Several vindictive Artsmen have
advanced the opinion that the little
stranger was merely a small
scienceman who had forgotten his
sweater. They explained that he
was in the waste basket trying to
find himself some lunch,
Science spokesmen scoff at this
suggestion. They point out that
one can easily tell a scienceman
from a skunk, since skunks as a
rule are rather cute looking
animals.
They suggest, in turn, that the
animal was undoubtedly an average sized artsman, sent to search
through the science lunch papers
to find out what it is that gives
sciencemen their great strength.
EVIDENCE
The sciencemen, who would not
Insult artsmen for worlds, are
careful to make clear that the visitor did not look like an artsman,
but they feel that they have sufficient other evidence.

Victoria Invasion Repulsed
Victoria Leads In
McKechnie Cup
e VICTORIA'S CRIMSON TIDE took the Varsity Thunderbirds in the third McKechnie Cup rugby game of the
season last Saturday afternoon at Victoria's MacDonald Park,
29-3. The University fifteen was out-played throughout the
fixture, but saved themselves from a shut-out when Doug
Reid kicked a field goal in the dying minutes of the rugged
exhibition.
The scoring started within the
first two minutes of play, when
Victoria's Doug Bray went over for
a try on a fast break around the
students. Bray and Jeffrey both
crashed over the Varsity Une for
two tries. The other two were
scored by Cornell and Chipman.
Peden topped the individual scoring by booting four conversions
and a penalty goal.
CLOSE PLAYS
Doug Reid and Oeorge Rush
were standouts for the Varsity
squad. Reid accounted for their
lone score, and earUer ln the game,
he kicked a penalty goal but the
score was nullified when referee
KiU of the RAF called the Thunderbirds offside.
Oeorge Rush, at fullback, played
a safe,heady game on the students'
last Une of defence.
Jack Sim also fought hard for
his Alma Mammy. Just befort>
half time, he blocked a kick Ave
yards from the Victoria Une and
just missed scoring a try. John
Hicks made a break-away near the
end of the contest, but lost the baU
on the Crimson Tide's Une.
ONE WIN SALVAGED
Doug Bray was the star of the
Capital City club, but a dark Uttle
New Zealander named Kereama
was sensational in their forward
line. The Victoria XV have a smart
three-quarter line and a snappy
scrum line. They played a great
game of kicking both in play and
in conversions. •
In the initial fixture, the UBC
fifteen swamped the Victoria College outfit, 15-0. Pearson, McKenzie, McCusker, Genge and
Eakony were respectively responsible for the five tries for the Varsity 'B' team. None of the conversions were good. Ed Bakony
fought hard for the students
throughout this fixture, and topped
off his showing with the final try.
Bill Narod, brother of UBC's Al
Narod, played well for the Victoria College fifteen.
JINXED
A year ago, the Varsity Thunderbirds suffered an even worse defeat than this at the hands of the
Vancouver Reps. The score of the
swamping was 44-0, a shut-out.
Here are the line-ups that played
in Saturday's game:
VARSITY: Rush, Hicks, Reid,
Morrison, Sim, McKercher, Wheeler, Jones, Cooke, Layard, Lockhart, MacDonald, Waters, Pegues
and Wallace.
VICTORIA: Chipman, Cullin,
Peden, Smith, Jeffrey, Wood, Gillespie, Sparks, Bray, Van Druten,
Gornall, Woods, Doswell, Kereama
and Greenhalgh.
Co-Ed   Sports
O FIRST and Third Year Arts,
the two top teams in Intramural volleyball met with a bang
in the gym at noon yesterday. Play
was fast and fierce throughout the
game, and scores were relatively
even UU the Freshettes got rattled near the finish, and gave their
opponents a chance to chalk up the
winning points. The final score
was First Year 21, Third Year 25.
The Fourth Year arts team laid
clown on the job for the second
consecutive tlnme Monday. Their
volleyball game went to Second
Year Arts by default.
Intramural badminton for today

Jericho To
Play Soccer
Here Wed.
e AN AIR FORCE team of soccerites from Jericho Beach will
meet a soccer team from the campus here this Wednesday at 1:00.
The team of fliers will be a station
team and the team that will oppose
them will be either the 'A' team,
*B' team, or an amalgamation of
both. Final varsity arrangements
are not very definite.
In the feature game at Callister
Park this Saturday the powerful
Army soccer team eked out a
narrow 2 te 1 win over Varsity
in the 'A' division.
This was a very close game. The
balance of the play was evenly dls- *
trlbuted between the two teams
during the entire game. Starry
work on the part of both goallss
kept the score down the bare minimum. Herb Smith, for Varsity,
is always outstanding between the
posts, but he was exceptional last
Saturday afternoon on many very
difficult shots.
Les Morgan scored the Varsity
goal on a pass from Clem Philley.
The team seemed to revolve a-
round the centrehalf, Don Petrie.
Near the end of the game when

Travels in
Victoria
By LUKE MOYLS

games ln Victoria on Saturday, the
trip was very successful. The
Senior 'B' rugger squad now realizes that their power is tops in
their circles, but the ragged play
Indicated that they need more, organization. The two Thunderbird
teams ran up against championship
opposition, and now know where
they stand in their respective
sports.
One old rugger fan told me a-
bout the last time a Thunderbird
crew won a McKachnie Cup game
in Victoria. The students were so
overjoyed that they tore off the
goalposts and marched with them
12 blocks, down to the C.P.R. dock.
MacDonald Park was filled with
a capacity crowd of over a thousand on Saturday. The Esqulmalt
Fortress Band pepped up the atmosphere a great deal.
Before the tip-off at the basket -
ball game, coach Maury Van Vli.'t
lined up the Thunderbirds and
introduced them one by one to the
400 odd (?) Victorians who crowded into the small gym. Don Wood-

hand from the local fans.

Aw Ful Of Thought
By JIM SCHATZ
•   LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT there was a basketball
game scheduled for the Varsity gym. But it was cancelled. The reason was that Lauries could not put a complete
team on the floor for the game. Well, you cannot blame a
team for running out of players once in awhile but the
situation is not very clear.
It appears that Stacies and Shores have player trouble
too. There is a movement afoot to amalgamate the three
teams downtown into one good team and form a new league
with Varsity, the new team, and Pat Bay Fliers.
This move would suit Pat Bay best because they have
a very formidable team over there (see elsewhere on this
page).
However, they have not a league to play in and are, consequently, only able to play the odd practice game. The move
would not harm Varsity any because we have a good team
and it could stand a little more competition such as they received over the week-end.
The teams of Shores and Stacies are supposed to be
behind the idea because there is a danger of them really
folding up. The trouble lies with Lauries, the team that could
not turn out Wednesday night. Obviously they are the first
to have felt the man-power shortage. But Laurie Liddle does
not want to lose his franchise to someone else. The reason
that he puts forth is that the players who have stuck by him
deserve a chance to play the game.
That is a very sound argument and sympathetic with the
players, but why should the entire league be made to remain
at a low standard because of a few personal fancies? A
better league with better returns would be in the offing if
the amalgamation movement is carried forward. The chances
are now that the idea is merely an idea that sounded good.
Yours for better sport in Vancouver.

I found the report about Victoria
rolling up its sidewalks at 9:30 p.m.
quite true. The streetcars are like
toonerville trolleys which bounce
around like bucking broncos. It is
also true that you can get lost after walking two blocks. Lou Checov, senior basketball manager, was
so mixed up that he couldn't find
his way from the parliament buildings to the Empress Hotel.
Incidentally, there's more to being a pub rep on a trip than just
writing stories. They grabbed me
for chief putter-to-bed of the
players on the midnight boat.
Then, at the rugby game they
shoved me on the sldeUnes and
called me a linesman.

a really hospitable town. The

Champions Down
Student Cagers
• VARSITY students may get a chance to see the Canadian
Champion Pat Bay Fliers in action in a basketball game
with the Thunderbirds at our gym next Monday at noon. The
contest is not definite as yet, but Varsity's coach Maury Van
Vliet is making arrangements for the return engagement.
The RCAF crew defeated our Senior A's to the tune of
67-54 at Victoria High School gym last Saturday night. This
was their first encounter since these two clubs met in the
B.C. basketball finals last season.
The Thunderbirds took the first
basket of the tilt. Sandy Robertson grabbed the ball from the tip-
off and went in for a smooth setup.- But the FUers came back with
two quick baskets, and from there
on, they held the lead. Nevertheless, Varsity kept close on the
heels of the RCAF squad.
BAKER WITH 30 POINTS
At quarter time, they were only
one basket behind, 17-15. During
the second quarter, the airmen out-
scored the students 15-10, stretching their lead to 7 points. During
the last half, Norm Baker potted
17 points before he went to the
showers by the four-foul route,
three minutes before the final
whistle. He was hot on the short,
one-handed shots, and put in some
astounding back shots, setting them
up without looking at the hoop.
He gathered a total of 30 points
for the at Bay squad.
Don Woodhouse came through
with his best showing of the season and topped the Varsity scoring
dropping In six baskets. Pop Pay
was second best man for the airmen with 13 points. Jack Edmundson, newcomer to the Pat Bay
line-up, was a great asset to the
Fliers. He was a good play-maker
and got 9 points on the side.
The contest was a rugged, high-
scoring affair, a la Vancouver Island style, but the referees handled the game well. Both teams were
handed 14 fouls, Franklin, Robertson, and Baker going out of the
tilt on personals.
VARSITY STILL SMOOTH
Air Force spectators were surprised by the speed and organization of the Varsity Thunderbirds.
One fellow commented on their
smoothness, saying he had never
seen such a smooth-working team
before. Only the superb shooting
of Norm Baker won the game for
the RCAF.
For the last three minutes of
play, the Pat Bay outfit played
only four men after Baker got the
nod. During this period the score
shot from 63-42 to 67-54, the students outscoring Ihe Fliers 12-4.
This will give you some idea of
the value of Baker to the Air
Force team.
The scores were:
VARSITY: Franklin 7, Robertson
5, Stilwell 4, Sykes 5, Bakken 6,
Woodhouse 12, Weber 2, McGeer
2, Johnson 6, Yorke 5. Total 54.
PAT BAY: Baker 30, Pay 13, Stout
2, McKeachie 4, Parent 2, Edmondson 9, Lee 7. Total 67.
