Blind GirVs Courage Gives
Inspiration To Students
Q In the present day, with stories of courage and heroism
in battle featured in every issue of our daily papers, little
attention is given to another type of courage, the courage of
perseverance, the courage that is required to overcome a
physical handicap, courage that must not flag, courage to
fight on without ever overcoming the handicap.
Such    courage    is   possessed    by
Isabel Beveridge, second year
Arts student at U.B.C. Born with
vision so badly Impaired that she
can only see well enough to walk
around, Isabel Beveridge has not
given up hope, and to replace tho
light of vision she has sought the
light   of   knowledge.
At seven years of ogj she came
from Rocky Mountain House,
Alberta, to Vancouver's school for
the blind.
Here she learned to read and
write by the Braille system. She
took her public and high school
education at this school and then,
deciding to go into the teaching
profession, she came to university.
In her second year she is taking
French 2, English 2, Philosophy 1,
and Beginners' German. In her
Christmas epcams she had an average of 73%. "University Is not
us hard as I thought It would be,"
said   Isabel.
She takes her notes on an interesting device made specially for
the purpose. It is similar in shape
to a slide rule, is about nine inches
long ond approximately two inehe.:;
wide. It is hinged at ono -snd and
contains a double row of punch
marks   arranged    in   series   of   six.
With a small punching tool called
a style, which looks very much
like a carpenter's awl, she punches
out uots in a series of combinations. At home she transcribe,
these and types out her notes on
a   Braille   typewriter.
Her English and French books
are in braille. For the other-
courses she uses her notes and has
someone read the text books to
her. Her greatest trouble came in
Math courses which are more difficult to study than the others as
they are less adaptable to this
For a hobby she-collects classical
recordings and she enjoys the
Carnegie recordings in the Brock,
attending the concerts whenever
possible. Isabel also played the
piano at cne time but has given
it up because of lack of time since
coming   to university.
Her story is truly a record of
fortitude, not the kind that gets
medals or the praise of the masses,
hut even more commendable than
spectacular heroics, for it is a
story of a fight alone, a struggle
over a period of years, a fight to
gain Independence and to conquer
a   never-ending  darkness.

Nash, owing to the absence of

the class of Arts '44 for their
lack of interest and appreciation
cf   their   democratic   rights.

Charlie .Mash also stated that
theie could be no alibi of ignorance of the meeting since the elections wero announced ln tho
Caf at noon by the  Mamooks.
The election of Sandy Hay as
men's athletic representative was
uncontested, while Gwen de Sou
and Penny Runkle, secretary-

representative respectively, triumphed over their opponents by
slight  margins of two and three.

Questionnaires Supplied
Monday  In  Lectures
0    Do U.B.C. students as a
whole need more financial aid to continue their
studies? Realising that only
when this need is understood by the public will more
financial aid be given, the
Students' Council, in cooperation with the faculty
and various clubs on the
campus, is submitting the
following questionnaire to
every student on the campus.
Starting Monday, copies will be
distributed in lecture periods in all
tho faculty buildings, and will be
answered and collected in class.
Students are urgently requested
by the Council to study the copy
of the Questionnaire In today's
Ubyssey, and to prepare all answers over the week-end, so that
they may answer the questions
promptly and waste as little as
possible of the professors' time
during the lecture.
These questions are being asked
for your benefit, that the consolidated information may be used ns
a reference and as answers to
questions raised publicly and privately, in the press and elsewhere,
regarding the finances of students
at the University and regarding the
need for scholarships, bursaries,
and   other financial  aid.
The information is asked from
all students, male and female,
whether responsible to any degree
for their maintenance or not.
Please answer the questions accurately. If you do not wish to
answer please return this sheet as
you received it. Your name is not

SX\    U.B.C. students DO work for a living.
In anticipation of the forthcoming government survey
that will reveal how many students at U.B.C. contribute
wholly or in part to their tuition and living expenses, the
Ubyssey made enquiry yesterday concerning the summer
activity of more than a hundred men on the campus.
The students were chosen at
random. From their answers a
fair estimate can be made of tho
percentage of U.B.C. students who
work during the summer and
what  they   do.
The most amazing feature of
the results of the brief survey is
that of all the students consulted
only one said that he did not do
anything during the summer and
had no particular wish to change
his  condition.
Several students claimed they
had only part time jobs. Others
stated they worked at "anything
they could get." But all except otu
expressed a sincere wish to work
and the great majority had steady
employment last summer.
The mines took the greatest
number. Bralorne took three,
Premier took two, Yukon Consolidated at Dawson, three, and Central   Zeballos,   one.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company accounted for
eight, three at the Sullivan Mine
and Concentrator at Kimberley
and five at the Smelter at Trail.
Four were employed at Britannia.
Five of thc students worked on
construction, four for the Northern Construction Company and
ono at Youbou on Vancouver
Six students sold Fuller Brushes
'or   at   least   part   of   the   summ-.r
Two others were farmers. Four
worked  in stores.
B.C. Pulp and Paper employed
eight; B.C. Plywood, three; thre_
delivered   Ice,
Three found employment in tho
government buildings at Victoria.
Eight more were government employees working on surveys.
Canneries accounted for three
and   cold   storage   plant   one.
J. B. DeMacedo had the distinction of being the only one to sell
hot dogs at the races. Bill Orr
was a carpenter. Jim McDonald
worked   at   a  fish   resort.
Johnny Brynelsen was a carpenter way up at the Polaris Taku
Mining   Company,   near   Juneau.
Tom Robinson, president of the
Musical Society, was a park gardener at  New  Westminster.
Johnny Farina was a deckhand
for union S.S. Art Monahan and
Jack McKlnley worked at sawmills.
Tod Nichols and Ernest Bishop
were   student   ministers.
Tom Pepper was an assistant in
the Physics Department at Summer School. Jim Stinson travelled
for a soap company and Jim McCarry was a route salesman for
Coca   Cola
Most unusual summer employment was that of Chat-lie Carn-
cross. Charlie worked his father'.;
peat farm, near New Westminster.
Tins is probably the only pert
farm   In   Canada. Page Two

•  From   The  Editor's  Pen  »  »  »
In a time of war like this, the youth of
Canada are being called upon to make great
sacrifices for their country and for -their
people. some of them have already
been called upon to make the greatest sacrifice of all, and no doubt others will have to
do the* same before this earth regains its
sanity. Many more are engaged in the
manufacture of defensive and offensive
weapons, working long hours on the construction of new plants and striving to inorease production. Others in the technical
schools and universities are being trained to
take important positions in the national life.
Under these circumstances when youth
is serving its country so well, youth deserves, in fact requires, leadership of an inspiring quality. This leadership must be
present not only in military circles, but in
government as well: leadership that will
make them proud to serve and assure them
they have something worth fighting for.
What kind of leadership is it when the
premiers of three provinces, including the
premier of our own province, refuse even
to attempt to correct certain obvious evils
now weighing heavily upon this country?
That the evils were present is clear from the
fact that a commission was appointed. The
commission consisted presumably of the best
men available for the job, and laboured for
over two years on the difficult problem of
finding the root of the trouble and a possible
Then these premiers refused even to
discuss the solution that was advanced. That
they had good reasons for their opposition
to the Sirois report is quite possible, but
that they should be unwilling to discuss the
report and their reasons seems hard to
understand. The big men at the conference
saw the importance of the meeting and the
difficulties of the task; the little men laughed "oblivious of the water being boiled in
the cauldron."
Most young Canadians are anxious that
the present state of affairs be improved and
that some provision be made for a very uncertain future. As they are the ones that
will be living in this country when the present generation is gone, they want, naturally
enough, as good a country to live in as possible. They are not all sure nor agreed as
to what should be done, but they know it
must be more than a mere nothing.
This refusal on the part of several provincial leaders even to discuss the only comprehensive solution yet advanced for the
problems facing Canada is hardly Inspiring.
It will place a good deal of doubt a"hd apprehension In the minds of young people in this
province and in the others. When they
begin to lose faith in their leaders, lt is hard
to say where the tide will stop. It may go
far beyond its early limits, overwhelming
leaders with true ability and courage.
Let us hope that this doubt is false and
will soon be dispelled.
• Pearl Castings
.   .   .   by Lister Sinclair
From time to time the injustices of this
harsh world impress themselves upon me
personally with overwhelming force. At
such times my ego deflates visibly, and I
feel myself urgently in need of something
to bolster up the flagging morale. I therefore turn with relief and gratification to the
Detective Story.
I like  Detective  Scories.
Psychologists inform me that by so
doin^' I um laying bare tho fact that I am
a cringing personality anxious to appear
courageous and intelligent. They are quite
right; in fact I feel that their view of the
case is very conservative. I KNOW that I
identify myself with the hero. I do it and
like it. Nothing affords me greater pleasure
than to feel that criminals cringe at the
sound of my name, instead of honest citizens
cringing at the sound of my voice. I like to
flatter myself that I look like my heroes.
Puerile Profile
After reading Sherlock Holmes, I bring
my tenuous knowledge of optics to bear on
our bathroom mirrors in order to devise
some apparatus which will enable me to observe my profile. I then tinker with the
lights to try and make me look hawk-faced
and unbearably intelligent. The greatest
resemblance is observed when the lights are
totally extinguished. I then stand scowling
in the dark until someone puts the lights on
and reveals me blinking owlishly, but never-
the less wearing a hawk-like expression.
Only my friends tell me It is horselike.
Well, I don't mind. After all it is the
mental attitude that is really important, and
although these boorish intruders don't know
it, I am closely scrutinizing their appearance and behaviour and lavishly deducing
all manner of fantastic and unreasonable
facts about them.
These trifling peculiarities of deportment have obtained for me a reputation for
marked eccentricity, bvit I do not care for
two reasons. In the first place, although
my friends consider me somewhat "quaint"
to say the very least of it, I have come to
consider myself a person of startling mental
capacity. In the second place, all great detectives are eccentric. Look at Sherlock
In Sherlock's Shoes
Mr. Holmes is very eccentric. For example he keeps his tobacco in an old shoe.
This trait is shared by several of my friends
who apparently keep their tobacco in shoes
very much older than Mr. Holmes'. Mr.
Holmes plays the violin and performs experiments in chemistry simultaneously. In
this he is, so far as I know unique, although
my lab partner used to make an invariable
practice of whistling through his teeth while
precipU .ting zinc. Mr. Holmes sports a
der .-stalker hat. Here he is, I feel, merely
being obsolete, I prefer to confine my obsoleteness to less ostentatious garments such
as the cut of my—well, anyway, not nty hat.
Mr. Holmes wears a cloak. This definitely puts him in a dignified minority.
One of my principal ambitions has always been to wear a cloak. I picture myself
rushing over open heaths with my cloak
positively billowing behind me. I see myself lending a touch of romance to this drab
world as I sweep into places of entertainment boldly crying "Ho! Bring on the
cloakroom! I wish lo deposit my cloak."
(You will observe that one must preface
every remark with an aspirate interjection
while one is wearing a cloak.)
This special cloak of mine would never
admit draughts, or become involved in revolving doors, or otherwise embarrass me.
It would protect my body from the inclemencies of the weather, and my mind from
the objurgations of the proletariat. In winter I would wear double weight woollies and
a cloak. In summer I would wear a bathing costume and a cloak. At night I would
wear pyjamas and a cloak. Wherever I went
it would be immediately obvious to even the
most casual observer that I was a great figure, if not necessarily a' great detective.
The fact that I would also be wearing
a bloodhound would clearly show, however,
that I was a detective. I should not, however, stick to the bloodhound with the same
assiduousness as I should stick to the cloak.
There are occasions on which a bloodhound
might prove a nuisance, but a cloak is always welcome.
I have actually cultivated some of the
other features of great detectives. I noticed
once that the truly great detectives always
call taxi-drivers "cabby!" and offer them
sovereigns to catch trains.
Regrettable Incident
* So early one afternoon I stopped a taxi
at Granville and Hastings, addressed the
driver as "cabby", and offered him a sovereign to catch the night boat to Victoria.
He was very nice about it, and asked me to
get in, but when I observed him taking the
Essondale road, I unobstrusively left during.
a traffic hold-up. Evidently he had forgot- |
ten all about me, and was hurrying to kee
some engagement elsewhere. Why shoul
I trouble him?
Nothing of this sort ever used to happen to Sherlock Holmes. Possibly Dr. Watson used to take care that the great man
was never plagued by absent-minded cab-
drivers. I am unfortunate in having no confidant. I suppose really I don't need one.
After all the main function of confidants in
detective stories is to ask the detective all
those fool questions the reader would like
to ask him, if only he could get his claws on
him. Anyone who wants to ask me questions can walk right up and sail in. Since
they probably won't be answered, why
should I care?
But this is mere prevarication. After
all the main point of a detective story is detection.

0 Work behind the production of such a radio
drama as the "Cavalcade of
U.B.C." can be summed up
as: weeks of research, hours
of writing, a half dozen rehearsals, and then a half
dozen rehearsals, and then a
half hour radio play that is
forgotten by many of its
hearers a few hours later.
Some time in February, tho
story of the University will be
aired for the second lime by the
Radio Society. Tlie first thn. was
in October, 1937, when the original
Radio Society presented the drama
from CJOR. A recording of the
priigram was made at that time,
and the revised drama is based
largely   on   that   recording.
According to Dorwin Baird of
CJOR, who is re-writing the
script, and who was the narrator
ori the original production, the
Cavakadq. typo of presentation
1' nils itself particularly well to
the   story   of   U.l.i.C.
'Our university has had a
hectic career," .says Baird, pointing out that in the past 26 years
there have been many episodes in
university history that in th.m-
selves would make a good half
hour drama. Instead, only the
highlights can b\_- used, creating a
problem which can only be surmounted by the 'March of Time'
style  of  scripting."
Baird points out that the word-
for-word action of the script may
not be factually correct In every
detail. However, the events that
have gone towards the building of
this university will be set forth in
their true light, as based on research done on the campus. A
date for the production will "bo
announced as soon as a completed
script ls ready.
As now planned, the show will
be a half hour, although there Is
a chance that another fifteen
minutes may have to be added.
Essential idea behind the production Is to acquaint the public with
the history of U.B.C, and ln doing
so, to accomplish the task by giving listeners an entertaining and
factual drama.
The    S.P.C.    sponsored    concerts
will    begin    today    in    the    Main
Lounge  of  Brock  Hall.     The   program will include;

.  .  . A Chang Suey Serial
Chapter 2
The Battle of the
Six Hour Braves
• Synopsis: Once upon a time,
long, long ago, the good ship
SS. Maqulnna, commanded by the
gouty Sir Francis Drake and tlie
douty Sir Ozymandlas Plink,
rounded Point Grey and anchored
with its cargo of looseleafs, lab
books, trig texts, desks and cokes
In Burrard Inlet. It was sent by
good Queen Bess to spread culture
among the savages in her newly
acquired colony.
But out of the western sunset
sailed a Chinese junk, packed to
the gunwales -with a crew of evil
orientals under the wily Dr. Chang
Suey, bent on wrecking this first
Dominion-Provincial Youth Training Scheme. Armed to the teeth
with wlng-jlngs and chop sticks,
th-e yelldw men crept up behind
Drake and his merry men. who
were carousing at a beach party
given by the Indian princess
Dottle  Listen.
0 "Hotcha • cha • cha, hot-
cha-cha-cha, stomp it,
Momma, to the boogie beat,"
chanted Sir Ozymandlas
Plink, who was doing the
Varsity Bunny Hug with the
venerable chieftainess, Maria
de Bean Dollert.
Sir. Francis, who at any other
time would have fired his mate for
using such language In front of
tho Innocent sailors, was so far
under the Influence of a native
pick-me-up called Geezil's Goo
that h. was waiving his arms in
Ihe air, under the impression that
they were caution money. Up and
down the beach chugged the sailors and the Indian glamour gals
to the strains of "There'll always
be an England", beaten out by
Siwash Sidney's four-piece orchestra (drums, drums, drums and
"Swell mixer, eh?" remarked
the steersman Marmaduko Bumsden to his partner, the beauteous
Petty Balled-Up, a Capilano deb
of the season 1577-78. It was a
sweater dance and the sailors
certainly were. Bumsden wiped
his perspiring forehead with a
hairy paw doing a two-way
pirouette that left Petty B-U in
a   Ilea])   on   the   sand.
Off to one -,ide of this gathering
stood tlie pensive figur.- of Big
Chief Shrum - Bum - Ti - Dum tn
melodious Indian name meaning
"The Scourge of Privates"). His
sixth sense, assiduously cultivated
to combat the fifth column warned
him  there  wa* dirty  work  afoot.
Suddenly his eye was caught by
a leering yellow *isage appearing
round the comer of a neighbouring hot-dog stand, and a wlngjing    swished    through    the    air,

carrying the chief's khaki headdress with it. But Shrum-Bum-
Ti-Dum never lost his head ln an
emergency. That's why he was a
big chief; at least it was one of
the reasons.
"Form threes, men!" he roared,
and out from behind stumps and
bushes and canoes popped an
army of bronzed young braves In
greatcoats and fourteen-inch boots
—Shrum's personal bodyguard of
the Cote tribe.
The air filled with wlng-jlngs
as Chang Suey's orientals charged,
but they were no match for the
agile Cote's, toughened by weeks
of marching. Besides, the braves'
greatcoats were so thick that the
wlng-jlngs blunted. their points
and fell down discouraged.
Through the underbrush the yellow felnds fled, hotly pursued by
wild braves who waved their
hatchets and yelled their fearful
battle-cry: "Six hours a week, six
hours a week!"
Most of the orientals were caught
and scalped, ln fact, you may see
their scalps this very day if you
go over to th- museum ln the
Library and ask Mr. Tansley
But one little group, led by tho
scoundrel Chang. Suey, escaped to
the Chinese junk. The boat stole
silently out of the harbour, leaving on the beach the mystified
Indians who mistook it for tho
North Vancouver ferry. And
from the stern snarled the oily
puss of the cad Chang Suey as
he  swore  he  would   return.
Cutie Calls
Meanwhile Drake and his men
were having shock treatment administered by some snappy squaws
in Second Year Nursing (for tho
battle had been over so fast tho
sailors still didn't know what the
score was) when a little messenger
boy blcycl-ed up with a telegram
for Sir Francis. It was from
Windsor Castle, and the commander   read   it   hastily.
"Dear Frank," ran the epistle,
"come back immediately. I am
desolate because I haw- no ono
to play Snakes and Ladders with.
Yours    lovingly,    Queen    Lizzie."
Drake was horribly perturbed,
for after his pleasant evening he
had been cheerily anticipating
educating the savages. But. as he

Revelations of
The ^X^riters
0 Who, or what, is Jabez?
Is Mary Ann a boy or
a girl? Who is this guy Berton behind the news? Who
puts out the Totem? Who
looks just like Margie? Why
does Joseph Joseph stutter?
Questions like these are fired at
the members of the Pub at a fast
rate after the issue of every paper.
It has gradually sunk into the
skulls of these Pubsters that perhaps the rest of the students
. would like to know something a-
bout the journalistic joes that put
out the Dirty Rag.
After all, we admit that perhapa
it's only fair that something should
be written about Mary Ann once
in a while. Mary Ann gets around
too.    And not always on business.
Ihen we'd also like to squelch
some of those subversive rumours
that get about the campus. For
instance, the editor-in-chief is
not a drunken Scienc-man. C.U.P.
does not stand for "Cutles Undermine Pub."
The author of Chang Suey is
not a zombi, despite what the
psychology department may say.
Jabez dotes not live In the stacks,
emerging only to publish The
You see, Aggies, even you can
be  fooled.
Until they read this, most of
these characters won't know they
are going to be exposed (just like
at Minsky's). You'll probably see
a certain unuercurrent of fear
and hesitation creep into their
columns In the next issue. For
who knows what is hiding behind
the  name   of   Jabez?
The slightest whisper of scandal
is likely to cause a complete
shuffle In the ranks of the sports
department, all  two of them.
So send in your gum wrappers,
or a reasonable facsimile, and be
patient kiddies, or a reasonable
facsimile, and perhaps one week
from today you'll be reading the
first episode of Revelations of the
Writers, or Mary Ann Has a
Private   Life,   Too!

Next Game vs. Tookes, Saturday 0 p.m., V.A.C.
^ To six men wearing Angelus colors went the honour of
doing what no other Inter-city league team has been
able to do this year. Wednesday night in the campus gym
they snapped Varsity's eight-game winning streak by leading all the way to take a 45—42 decision in a ragged exhibition.
The Thunderbirds started the
gamo on the wrong foot and never
did get into their stride. The only
time they looked like their usual
selves was ln the third quarter,
but the fast breaks of the red hot
Angelus crew kept them off balance throughout most of the game.
Angelus took advantage of the
'Birds' off night to grab a 12—7
lead by the first breather. They
stretched this to 28—14 at half-
time, repeatedly snagging rebounds
and wild Varsity passes for quick
breaks which clicked with disconcerting regularity.
Going Into the third quarter the
Blue and Gold suddenly came to
lite. Pat Flynn, who was the best
Varsity man of the night, sank
eight of his evening's total of IS
in this period, bringing the 'Birds
to within one point of the A's,
32—31. They never managed to
draw even, however, and the rally
which usually brings victory was
staved off by a cagey crew that
cautiously ragged the ball and
drifted In close when the anxious
Varsity checkers became entangled
In their own feet.
McDonagh and McLachlan led
the Angelus attack, scoring 13
points each, but every one of their
six-man line-up was on and tho
-win was deserved.
The lads are getting more superstitious every day . . . they claim
they lost because the Totem photographer was on hand snapping
pictures and the press prophesied
they were a cinch to win . . . maybe they were not used to the animated cheering section led by the
Mamooks ... it shows what rotters we have around here when
they would hiss a Varsity substitute when he came on the floor . . .

Rowers Plan Spring  Meet
with Oregon  and Wash.
%    A rowing meet is being planned for the first week in
March by the Varsity Rowing Club, which has, invited
the U. of Oregon and U. of Washington to send teams up.
Oregon will definitely enter its
heavyweight   crew,   but   It   is   not BBmnHaaH^KiHM^i^
known as yet If Washington's crew
will be able to make the trip. All
Husky teams have a strict training
schedule and the Washington coach
will not allow his men to row until
they are in prime shape, which is
usually sometime In April.
Varsity's crew has been holding
light workouts and next week will
settle down under a hard and fast
training program. The boys will
hold early-morning workouts In
addition to their usual Wednesday,
Friday and Sunday practices.
Coach of the team is Ned Pratt,
former Vancouver Rowing Club
star. Pratt represented Canada In
the 1932 Olympic Games held at
Los Angeles.
Despite the loss of four first-
crew men, Jim Asselstine, Bill
Riddell, Jack Harrisson, and Phll

strengthened by several newcomers. John Simpson is a 6 ft. 2 In.,

Visit Victoria For Cup Tilt
^ The senior rugby fifteen, who this week-end journey
to the Island to play Victoria Reps in Varsity's seoond
McKechnie Cup encounter of the season, held their final
practice Wednesday and pronounced themselves ready to
meet the onslaught of the Crimson Tide.
This will be the first game of the year between Varsity
and Victoria.   The odds are about 5—1 for the Island team.
The Thunderbirds leave on the midnight boat on Friday
for Victoria, where they are scheduled to play a spot of

Saturday s game will  be  almost
a do or die battle for the Blue
and Gold, who lost their first cup
game to Vancouver Reps 17-6 last
November. Vancouver have subsequently lost twice to Victoria by
large margins.
Both Victoria and Varsity have
lost two of the better players they
have used in previous games. Varsity lost Oerry Wood and Al
Gardiner to the navy during the
holidays, and Victoria are now
without the services of Hump
Payne and Steve Covernton, both
stars  of  long  standing.
Victoria announced this week
that their veteran scrum half, Bill
Smith, will return from the injured   list   for   this   game.
The college lineup is almost the
same as In their last game.
Scrum — Evann Davies, Al Wallace, Jim Mainguy, Mac Buck,
Fraser Shepperd. Al Narod, Jim
Harmer,  and  Jack   Bingham.
Halfback — Pat Rose.
Five-eighths  —  Ian   Richards.
Threes — Todd Tremblay. Roy

Fullback   —   George   Rush.
thst a team can't be expected to
tako forced holidays from the
game without suffering a certain
loss of condition and timing.
Nevertheless the threes showed
that they can still whip the oval
around and Victoria need not be
too     confident. Captain     Todd
Tremblay and Walter Fricker
proved to be a hot combination
on offense.
Highlight of the practice was
provided by Ranji Mattu. Mattu,
his usual murderous self, -was
wurned several times by team
mates to "take it easy". All this
fell on deaf ears. By the end of
practice internal dissension had
reared Its ugly head, as they say
in   the   better   rags.
One handsome, mild-mannered
three-quarter man refused to tako
one especially viscious tackle from
Mattu and told him to depart in
no   lily-livered   style.
Then followed a mld-fleld bout
of choice name calling ln the best
commons room manner, and wc
do mean common. Coach Stewart
told Mattu to clean It up. whereupon tho oversized Ranjl left the
field in a  huff.
