Murray Mather, chairman of the
committee appointed by Council to
report on the stadium situation, Is
emphatically in favor ot completing
both the repair cf the playing field j
and the construction of a permanent
concrete grandstand by next fall.
"We want to be able to hold intercollegiate American football games on
our own stadium next fall," he stated,
"because we are not on very good
terms with the down-town rugby
union, and may not ba able to obtain the use of Athletio Park." In

Strange Topic In
Debate At Wesley
Is "As It Were"?
"That the isneas. of tho as it were
is," is the somewhat elusive topic
chosen by the United Colleges Debating Society for the opening regular engagement on the program of
the society for the spring term. This
debate will be held at 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon in Convocation Hall,
Wesley College.
Bill Patterson and Don Farikin, of
first year, will be prepared to defend
the resolution, with Jeau Thompson
and Alan Earle, of second year, offering the case for the negative.
There is a story attached to the
novel topic selected for the occasion.
Evidently the umark appeared during the course of a lecture in second
year English, delivered by Mr. David
Owens. Intrigued by tiie statement,
Thursday's debaters, in true debating
style, resolved to try conclusions with
the subject in what should prove a
most interestini tilt.
Arts '37
Fees Due
Says Pres.
Announcement v/as made yesterday
of the final arrangements for the Arts
'37 Class Party, by Clarence Idyll,
Sophomore President.
"With the co-operation of the class
we should succeed in getting sufficient money to put the party over in
good style, but with thc short time
that we have left to collect the remaining fees, everyone will have to
do their part," stated the president.
"The dance will be in the Spanish
Grill on Thursday the 24th. Earle
Hill's Orchestra will play. The dance
will be informal. Tickets are two
dollars a couple, and class fees of
one dollar are still very much payable. A number of tickets are available for outsiders, and may be obtained from any member of the executive."
The draw will be announced Thursday noon, and names of couples must
be handed in to the exeuctlve TODAY. Any names not coupled up
by Thursday at ten o'clock will be
put in the draw. The tickets will be
distributed Thursday in the quad to
the women of the class, providing
both the woman and her partner have
paid their fees.   .

Alma Mater Meeting Friday Noon
To Consider Stadium Bond Issue
Council Committee Consisting of Mather.
Malkin and Bolton to Present Report
Ask For $40,000 to Repair Field and Build
Plans for the repair of U.B.C.'s playing field, and the
construction of a grandstand on the stadium site vhll be discussed at a ffieetlng of the Alma Mater Society to be held next
Friday noon in the Auditorium.
A committee consisting of Murray Mather, James Malkin
and Fred Bolton was appointed by Students' Council to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter, and the result of
their labors is a two-page report recommending that a loan not
to exceed $40,000 be floated for the purpose of completing the
stadium project this year. This money would be repaid over a
period of years from Alma Mater fees in a manner similar to that
in which the gymnasium bonds have been retired.

On Friday the Alma Mater Society will be asked to pass
a resolution to borrow a sum not exceeding $40,000.00 for the
purpose of reconditioning the stadium playing field and erecting a grandstand.
There is no doubt that the stadium should be completed
as soon as possible, and in view of the fact that the gymnasium
bonds will be all paid off next fall, this is an opportune time
to give attention to the matter. But would we not be taking a
risk in spending $33,000.00 on a permanent grandstand before
the field has been repaired, and thus before the proposed new
drainage system has definitely proved itself to be efficient?
It is true that competent men have given their opinion
that the field can be successfully drained, but still there is always the possibility of some unforeseen elements cropping up
and in such an event the grandstand would prove to be just as
much a white elephant as our notorious green fence, only on a
much larger scale. And we would still be paying interest and
principle on the money which we borrowed to build it.
We seen no valid reason why the Alma Mater Society should
rush the grandstand to completion now rather than leave that
undertaking over until next year. It seem very doubtful whether
the sod would be in any proper condition for the playing of
games by next fall, and even if it were, any financial saving
which might be effected through such games, or through present low prices, would be offset by the interest and maintenance
costs which would be saved by delaying the bond issue for a
We believe that the field should be repaired this year
by means of some temporary financial arrangement — which
would be quite possible—and that next year, when it has proved itself to be in proper condition, the proposed bond issue
should be floated, and the grandstand should be erected.
Think the matter over before Friday, A. M. S. members!

Modern Poetry
Criticized By
"Present day romanticism is revealed in the tendencies towards extremes and the avoidance of the 'divine medium'; this extremism is- manifested in contemporary arts in general and in poetry in particular,"
stated Mr. Ira Dilworth, Associate
Professor of English, in discussing
the subject, "Romantic)-m in Contemporary Poetry," before the Vancouver Institute Saturday evening.
The speaker contended that extremism is found first in the style
of the poet. The contemporary poet
endeavors to put in writing a personal experience. He dots not, however, concern himself greatly with
whether or not he is succeeding In
communicating this experience to his
Reality and Phantasy
Extremism is found secondly in the
outlook of the present day poet upon
his art in relation to life, continued
the lecturer. He said that on the
one hand is the realist who presents
a definite picture of actual life. An
extreme example of this is the symphonic poem depicting the steam locomotive in action. On the other hand
is the artist who takes us to a phan-
tastic and impossible world of his
dreams which he characterizes as
being "above realism." This dreamworld of the artist's is utterly unrelated to the world of actuality.
"I believe the function of the artist is not to go to these extremes but
to represent something tfwt may happen in life acnording to the rules of
probability," stated Prof. Dilworth in
criticism of ihc extremist tendency
in contemporary art. He also said
that often, in his zeal closely to examine the fragments of n thing, the
contemporary poet missed the significance of the thing as a whole.
"T. S. Eliot's 'Waste Land,' sterile
and barren, is too often the picture

The Ubyssey fulfills at least one useful purpose - it is always ready and waiting to be
blamed when a meeting or performance is unsuccessful. Unfortunately even the Ubyssey
staff finds it necessary to occasionally attend
lectures. And there are mistakes which would
not occur with a regular paid newspaper staff.
In such cases the bowed heads of the editors
submissively receive the curses of irked executives, but there are errors for which even
these journalistic Jobs refuse to assume the
blame. If an organization voluntarily undertakes to handle its own publicity the editor
resigns his responsibility in the matter ex
cept for the assignment of the agreed space. If
these stories are not typed or if they are hand
ed in later than ten o'clock, the organization
has not fulfilled its part of the agreement and
the editor is entitled to withdraw his. The type
of story of course depends entirely on the publicity manager and his executive, and should
be agreed upon before it is submitted to the
paper. Regulations are simple, and the edi
torial staff expects reasonable co-operation.
Allowances for clubs who for some good rea
son cannot meet these requirements must be
made only at the editor's discretion, and complaints from publicity managers who have deliberately disregarded Publication Board rules
are very trying, to .say the least.
Write-ups, of course, rest with the Ubyssey
alone. The paper is not a publicity sheet, ft
presents campus activities ln an unbiased light.
"Panning" is restrained, but a sincere effort is
made to bestow only deserved approval, and
not to fall into the monotonous habit of presenting all performances, good, bad and indifferent as first-rate.
We were impressed, the other day, by one
of J. B. Priestley's observations in his latest
masterpiece—(English Journey).   After not
ing   the   attraction   that   great   amusement
centres, such as Blackpool, have for the latest
generation of England's industrial age, the
author comes to the rather melancholy conclu
sion that these modern carnivals of mass, me
chanical jubilation have replaced, to a large
extent, the interest that was formerly focussed
in the British Parliament, and government in
We hesitate to question the judgment of so
astute an observer, and so polished a writer,
as Mr. Priestley. And, as we look about in
Canada—even here on the campus of this university—we are forced to admit that his criticism cannot be confined to England.
Students of recent years have shown an appalling lack of interest in their principal organization here—the Alma Mater Society. The
lack of interest is appalling because it foreshadows an indifferent attitude with regard to
civic, provincial and federal affairs on the part
of those who stand on the threshold of political
enfranchisement. Such attitudes, developed by
so-called members of the intelligentsia, lead towards dictatorship in government — not towards democracy.
On Friday noon a meeting of the Alma Mater Society will be held in the Auditorium.
The meeting will discuss one of the most important problems ever to face this institution.
No student who even remotely expects to honorably discharge his or her obligations as a
citizen of this country can afford to miss this
Having assumed a monastic life through
the necessity of weather conditions during the
past week, we must needs turn to contemplation for material for the weekly stint. And
something truly worthy of contemplation and
speculation turned up.
In a very obscure corner of an American
newspaper we find this Associated Press item:
"Stanley Walker, for several years city editor of the New York Herald Tribune, today became managing editor of the New York Daily
Mirror, it was announced at the Mirror offices.
Walker succeeds Emile Gavreau, now editor."
This item seems obscure enough, but a little
research points to the probability of its heralding a new era in journalism. Of course we
have our fallibilities (Arthur is responsible for
all of those) but we take the risk and point out
just wherein we feel the significance lies.
Our research was entirely within our memory, since the monastic life excludes books
of reference, but these are the facts as we
remember them.
Stanley Walker wrote a book which was
published some months ago, entitled "City Editor.' It is a chatty survey of journalism in all
its parts and as a whole, and makes very entertaining reading.
In the book he ruminates on the possibilities of the tabloid as a newspaper, not as a yellow rag or a spite paper as tabloids have been,
up to now. He leans toward the opinion that
it would be the ideal medium for journalism,
since it is easier to publish, and most important
of all, is so much cheaper to publish that it
can run on the income from subscriptions,
which means it can thumb its nose at the advertisers.
All large newspapers and magazines are, in
a sense, "kept" by the advertisers. The advertisers may be broad-minded, liberal men,
or they may be carping souls who insist on
news distortion in many cases. But either
way, it's a bad principle for a newspaper to
work under.
Mr. Walker is in the vanguard of ethical
journalism, and the probabilities point to radi
cal changes on the Mirror. The Mirror, if we
remember rightly, is owned by W. R. Hearst,
and has run at a phenomenal loss all its short
life. If Mr. Hearst can afford to take the sap
with it as he has, for a while longer, Mr. Walk
er should make an interesting experiment with
And Winchell (who has been the only subscription getter for the Mirror lor years) or no

"An essay," says Mr. Francis Bacon, "is the
wise thoughts of wise men."

Dr. Richard Niles Sears won his doctor of
philosophy degree at HarVard University a
short time ago, writing a thesis for the psycho
logy department in which he hands out this
piece of information.
Students who obtain high marks in college
usually are not amused by puns, while students with lower ratings find them funny.

Drainage Feasible
Concerning the criticism that it is
taking too much risk to spend $33,-
000 on a permanent grandstand before the new drainage system will
have proved itself efficient or otherwise, the A.M.S. president declared:
"Dr. Schofield of the Department of
Geology, Mr. Llghthall of the Department of Civil Engineering, and
Mr. Wooten of the Vancouver Parks
Board have all said that it can be
successfully drained, and I am willing to accept their word on the matter."
Prices Now Low
"I believe that ths grandstand
should be completed with as little
delay is possible," he continued, "because we do not know when prices
will start to rise." This consideration
together with the potential revenue
from the stadium next fall, he considered regarded as Important enough
to offset the extra year's interest
which the A.M.S. would have to pay
by borrowing the money this spring
before the last gymnasium payment
has been mado.
"The committee has thoroughly investigated this matter; we are now
thoroughly convinced that the field
can be properly drained, and we
should very much like to see the
whole project, including the grandstand, carried through this year," he

Buckingham Good
Buckingham's part wu outstanding, chiefly because he resisted a tendency to overact whloh ia inherent in
the part. Miss Morrow waa competent,
but would have been the better if
she had exercised a little more restraint, the continued high-tension
throughout the piece being somewhat
ot a strain on the audience as well as
the actress.
"Smoke Screen" was directed by E.
Nash, Arts '».
"The Slater Who Walked In Silence"
presented the unusual spectacle ot,a
play which is largely exposition and
contains a minimum of action, yet
holds the audience from start to finish.
Excellent Acting Held* Audience
The really excellent acting of Mrs.
F.G.C. Wood and David Macdonald
contributed largely to thla result, and
the secondary part of Captain Snark,
played by Alex Smith, supported the
principal role* perfectly.
"Fantastic Flight" presented some
novel stage effect*, and varied a heavy
and somewhat greuaome play by neatly introducing comic relief.
"Love in an Ape House" wa» good
low comedy, but not in the same class
as the first three play*. Ann Ferguson was an amusingly vulgar Flor-
rie, and Douglas Smiley'* version of

Mrs. Hunter Lewis, "Fantastic Flight"
and Isobel Harvey the final play.—

president of such a club, may I tell
"Puzzled Co-ed" about this organisation?
The Literary Forum wa* organised
ln '23 by Dean Bollert, with a view
to enabling University women to take
their part in public life. It wa* felt
that in general, unlet* called upon
beforehand, the women of UAC. were
unable to properly express their opinions. The policy of th* club this
year has been to go hi solely and
extensively for all form* ot impromptu speech. Informal meetings are held
twice a month at noon, and are limited to thirty women students. Last term
this new idea was received with interest, and proved to be very interesting and enjoyable.
To many women the dub name
sounds too "Intellectual." Tho reason
for this, the executive feels, is that
the alma of the dub have been misunderstood. Because of this we are
having a "rushing" tea on Friday,
January 35 in the Lower Common
Room at 3:0. Judge Helen Gregory
McGill ia to be the guest speaker.
This is, I believe, the first real attempt on our campus at a system of
club rushing, as suggested editorially by the Ubyssey on January 11.
"Puzzled Co-ed" and her friends
are very welcome to attend thla open
meeting. Dean Bollert, the club's
Honorary President and critic, and the
executive feel that it i* capably filling what might otherwise prove a serious gap ln college education.
Yours truly,
Rosemary Edmonds,
President, Literary Forum.

Contrary to a report issued in one
of our better-known down-town paper*, there wa* no fire on the campus. The report stated that "A small
fire broke out in the arta building
on Friday morning . . the solitary
fire engine was frozen and would not
start . . . students and janitors subdued the blaze with fire-extinguisher* ... the firemen arrived on the
scene pushing the tire engine ....
they arrived in time to inspect the
ashes ... then returned to the hall,
still pushing the engine."
The indignant Fire Chief stated
that there was no fire . . . that it
wa* not in tho arts building . .. that
the engine was not frozen, and did
atart. . . that it reached the scene
under its own power . that students only watch-ad . . and that there
was no need for janitors to extinguish a non-existent fire. The Chief
resented the aspersions rart upon the
efficiency of his command, which i*
always ready at any hour of th* day

newspaper to twist the fucts even to
the extent of maligning an efficient

The report of the committe follows:
As at January 14, 1935
The Committee was appointed to investigate the possibilities of repairing the stadium playing field and of
building a grandstand. The findings
of the Committee will be divided into
four parts.
(a) The repair of the playing field.
(b) The erection of a grandstand.
(c) The financing of the above pro
(d) Recommendations.
(a) The first question consldertd
was that of whether or not the present site Is suitable as far a* drainage is concerned. Dr. Schofield of the
Department of Geology, Mr. Llghthall of the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of British Columbia and Mr. Wooten of the
Vancouver Parks Board were consulted and all three agreed that adequate drainage could  be provided.
Mr. Wooten haa kindly agreed to
give any assistance he can in the
matter of redrainlng the field. He
proposes to draw up detailed specifications and present them to the
A. M. S. In brief his recommendations
are as follows:
Plough up entire surface and re-
grade to new grades, making up with
beat of soil from adjacent grounds
(probably 600 cubic yards);
Save best sods for use over drains;
Open all lateral drain* inside track
and adjust or relay if required. The
main longitudinal drain need not be
disturbed. Fill over drain* to a depth

Campus Life Paralyzed
By Dorwin Baird
The snow, rain and sleet which tied up business and trans
portation in Vancouver on Monday, did not spare the U.B.C.
campus. Every building was reported to be leaking, with the
possible exception of the Aggie Bldg. Hundreds of books in
the library stacks were saved from destruction by a sweating
group of students.

to the very bottom stack, and was
threatening to ruin hundreds of valuable books.
Alan Morley, better known as the
Campus Crab, came to the rescue of
Mr. Rldington and his books. He
gathered together a half dozen boys
and borrowed several large tarpaulins
from the Fire Hall. These w

The gang then hurried to the stacks
and removed all the wet books to
safer places. A mop brigade wiped
up the six floors of stacks and relieved the situation. Mr. Ridington
expressed his thanks for the help rendered.
A leak in the roof of the Administration Building caused considerable
damage. Mr. Matthews, the Registrar, spent a busy day answering telephone calls. A staff ot 12 men did

water. This extreme pressure wu
the main cause of all the leak*.

Professor Dilworth was the only
faculty member seen around. He came
over from Union College, to find all
classes cancelled. Mail delivery was
not made, nor did the safeterla receive any food supples. A bread truck
was stalled on the road. The situation was relieved on Tuesday, but
no classes were held. Janitors and

things will return to normal on Wednesday.

Ice Hockey Returns To Campus With Washington Game
U.B.C. Will Meet
U. of W. Today
In Washington
Wednesday's Game To Be First of Four
Thirteen Men To Travel
For the first time in several years Varsity is to send an
ice-hockey team south take on an American College team there.
The Blue and Oold boys will leave Vancouver Wednesday
morning, play University of Washington Huskies that night in
Seattle, to return home Thursday morning.
The boys are not only filled with the desire to win their
Initial Inter-Collegiate battle in many years, but also with the
determination to avenge the beating that the rnunderbirds took
on the basketball court during the holidays at the hands of the
Huskie Frosh.
For several weeks now a group ot
about thirty fellows have been going
through their paces at the Arena.
Last week twenty of these were
singled out, and after a hard game
with the Royal Alrforce on Thursday
night, thirteen of these were chosen
by President Gordie Livingston and
Coach Nolef to make the first trip
South. Following this game there
are to be two games at home and another in Washington, hi successive
Team Looks Good
The squad will be made up of
eight forwards, four defenoemen, and
a goalie; and will be accompanied by
the coach. The first shing forward
line will consist of Trussel, Little and
Taylor.   The second strir,g forwards
will be Livingstone, Hager and Phelps
with Morris and MacDonald being
reserved for extra substitutions. On
the defence Burnett and Lambert will
work together, as will Leo and Cudmore. Ron Andrews will be between the sticks. Altogether the boys
make up a very sweet team to represent any University.
An Urgent Appeal
Owing to the fact that the boys
must furnish much of the where-
withall to finance the tiip, and will
be somewhat responsible for the financing of the Huskies trip up here,
they are asking, everyone to attend
the return gamo3 in Vancouver. Tickets will be reasonable, and the boys
will put on a great game.

Varsity and
Adanacs Meet
For Fourth Time
League Leadership Is At Stake Tonight
Adanacs Out For Revenge
One of those 'naturals' that come up every so often in basketball will show itself tonight to lift the roof of the much-
suffering V.A.C. gymnasium. We scorn to call the game crucial. Any game with the possibilities of this one would be insulted at the term.
Henderson It High Scorer With 13 Points
Second Noon Hour Game
Revenge is sweet. So they say at least, and the Thunderbirds seemed to be enjoying themselves Friday when they
handed the Washington State Normal basketball team a 31-27
licking in retaliation for their defeat on the gridiron last term.
The team hadn't expected to play another Inter-Collegiate
tilt until next March. Freddy Bolton arranged the game hurriedly over the phone, and the game wasn't announced until
Friday. Still, a large crowd of Varsity fans were in the gym
Friday noon to see the team win their third straight game.
Washington seemed to feel the effects of their trip and the strange
floor, as Varsity ran up ten points
without a dissenting murmur from
their opponents.   Nearly eight min-
First of all, it is to be a battle between the bloodfued rivals Varsity
and Adanacs. Second, it is to be for
the undisputed leadership of the Inter-City League; and finally it will
be a grudge battle, with Adanacs
thirsting for revenge for their defeat
at the hands of the Thundrebirds
just one week ago tonight.
Ever since time and basketball began in Vancouver and New Westminster, Varsity aud Adanac.-) have been
two of the strongest teams in the
league, and any game between them
was almost sure to be a good one.
Winner Will Top League
The team that wins to.ught's game
will jump Into a clear leadership of
the league. During nearly the entire
time since the league opened, two or
more teams have share i the honors
at the top of the list, but tonight one
team will be up their, all alone. Now
three teams are bunched in the lead
with 10 points apiece. These are Varsity, Adanacs and Province.
When these teams met last Varsity
managed to come out on top after a
thrilling game that was only won
after an over-time period. The score
was 25-24 after a fast and hard-
fought contest, Varsity winning in
the extra period on a basket from
the tip-off by "Burp" Willoughby.
That game was the third that Varsity had played against the Royal City
squad. The other two games were
evenly divided between the teams,
and both equally good games. In
the first Varsity came out on top
by a single point, comiu,.r from behind to win 31-30. Adanacs took the
second contest by a threo point margin, staving off a second half rally
by the Blue and Gold team, that took
them from a ten point disadvantage
to within throe points of their rivals.
This is the last time that these teams
will meet.
Team Has New Tricks
The team has been fcoing great
guns since their return from Washington, where they learned not a few
tricks about cafaba towing, among
them a nice blocking play which
they have got down pat. Henderson
will probably start at centre tonight
against the Adanacs. "Kenny" or
"Hunk" as the boys can call him, has
been improving with every start. He
snared 13 poir.t3 in the game with
Bellingham, and should get his share
tonight. "Bugs" Bardsley will direct
the team from one forward position
and "Burp" WiJloughhy will probably hold down the other. So much
has been said about the playing ability of Jimmie that there lr not much
more to say about that gentleman.
Willoughby has been playing a top-
notch game lately too, having a habit
of coming through with the needed
points in the last seconds of the
Pringle At Guard Again
George Pringle will start at guard,
where he has been playing since
Henderson started to hold down the
center position so ably. George
played at guard last year, but moved
to center when Bob Osborne vacated
that' position. Tom Mansfield will
play the other guard position. Tom
plays a stalwart game in the defence. Bill Swan, Dick Wright, Jack
Ross and Jim Osborne will form a
strong second string.
utes elapsed before Fitzer came
through with a nice one-handed shot
to start W.S.N.'s scoring. Varsity controlled the play throughout this period, and looked much tho better team
in all departments, especially passii.g.
Vanity Lead* 10-0
Bardsley started the scoring with
one of his specialties; a beautiful
long shot that swished; through tlif»
hoop. Two baskets by 'Hunk" Henderson, one by Pringle and another
beauty by Bardsley made the score
10-0 for the Blue and Gold. Then
came Fitzer's basket followed by foul
shots by Ross and Henderson.
Meet On
February 9
Strong Team Lined
Inter-class Basketball
The first inter-class basketball
game which was to have been played
Tuesday noon between Education and
Aggies has been postponed until Monday. The gam? between Arts '36
and Sc. '35 will be playsd tomorrow
noon in the g\m.
Another in the long list of Intercollegiate contests that thc Thunderbirds will participate in this year
will be held in Seattle next month.
The Blue and Gold swimming club
will send a strong team to compete
with the University of Washington
Huskies there. The date has been
set as February 0. Tha meet was
originally scheduled for late in this
month, but it was postponed at the
request of the British Columbia
team, who felt that they were not
prepared to meet the Huskies yet.
The delay will give them time to get
in condition for the Important meet.
Although the team haa not been
officially announced as vet, most of
the main participants are known.
Among the swimmers who.are reasonably certain of going with the
team on the ninth are Magnus Lunde,
sophomore, and Bruce Miller, freshman. Miller wa.? the chief reason
why Arts '38 were victors in the inter-class meet last week, while Lunde
got most of thc points for his class,
Arts '37.
George Minns, Bill Walnwright,
and Jack Milburn are three other
swimmers who will almost surely go
with the team. Fred Bolton, Men's
Athletic Representative will travel
with the swimmers as manager.
The meet will be exclusively for
men, as the University of Washington will not allow their women swimmers to compete. For this same reason the meet wiL be held in the pool
of the Washington Athletic Club in
Seattle, since tin college pool belongs to the women.
Meanwhile thc team is practising
hard in preparation and the remaining members will be announced within a few days.
Swan Wright and Ross were put
ln the game within a few second*
of each other and the play, which
had been fairly alow before, began
to go more quickly, as Vanity took
less pains with their pawing. Washington began to creep up a* Stutz
and Vandergriend scored quick baskets, followed by another basket and
two foul shots, to leave the score et
13-10 for U.B.C.
WAN. Find Cesu^denc*
As the second half opened the first
team took the floor again. W.S.N.
looked like a new team when they
returned to the floor, and began to
snap the ball around In the best approved style. In consequence they
scored two baskets to take the only
lead that they enjoyed during the
game. With the score against U.B C.
<$>at 14-13, Hender&on took a pass thc
length of the floor to score a sitter.
Varsity had the best of the play
for the next few minutes and took
a 27-19 lead only to h*v* it whitthd
down again by three baskets and 2
foul shots by Washington. Bardsby,
Pringle and Willoughby were put
back in the gome, and Willoughby
salted it away with a nice basket
close in.
Henderson Score* 13
Bardsley showed up best for the
Blue and Gold on general play, scoring 8 points, while Henderson had a
good day to score 13 points. Pringle
played his usual steady game.
Fitzer was high for the Washington
squad snaring 10 points while Carver got 7, besides putting most of the
