Twenty-Four Hours
In a recent address to the Marpole Community Club the
Honorable P. A. Gaglardi stated that the problem of juvenile
.delinquency could be solved "within 24 hours without the
help of any expensive, high flown, brains trust professors or
Apart from our wondering why Mr. Gaglardi could not
spare 24 hours of his admittedly precious hours and rid the
community of this very urgent problem, his statement is of
interest because it typifies the all too common ignorance regarding social problems. Mr. Gaglardi is not alone in considering
himself an expert in an area which in reality he knows nothing
about. He fails to see that juvenile delinquency is but one
overt manifestation of a deeper and more widespread social
Juvenile delinquents cannot be transformed into well adjusted, contributing members of society in 24 hours. They
have been conditioned to their asocial mode of behaviour by
years of parental rejection and deprivation. No one can convince them in a day that the society that has been against
them for years is in reality interested and cares for them.
There is no one answer to the problem of juvenile delinquency or any other form of asocial behaviour, simply because the causes of maladjustment are many and they vary
from person to person. Parental rejection, inadequate finances
and housing, lack of consistent parental discipline, these and
many more factors all contribute to juvenile delinquency and
other social problems.
When the problems of delinquency, marital difficulties
and other social ills are fully studied, it becomes apparent that
no one answer will suffice. Only a comprehensive program
carried out by people trained in the science of human behaviour can effectively cope with problems of such magnitude.
Just as we expect our road and bridge building to be tackled
by people trained in this field so should we expect our social
problems \o be handled only those possessing the necessary
knowledge and skill.
The logical question arising from the above is why don't
the social workers, the psychologists and psychiatrists make a
better job of treating social problems. The answer is that not
enough members of these professions are employed and not
enough resources are available. For example, in the City of
Vancouver at the present time, the average case load of a probation officer is around 85. It is estimated that a probation
officer can adequately cope with about 40 cases.
The answer to social problems does not lie in such proposals as Mr. Gaglardi outlined. Rather they lie in the expansion of our treatment programs so that epople engaged in
these programs can have a reasonable chance of helping their
clients. We should not expect our engineers to build a new
highway with outmoded equipment and insufficient staff.
Neither should we expect our social workers, psychologists
and psychiatrists to deal with the complex problems of today
without giving them enough staff, adequate treatment centres,
and an enlightened framework of legislation within which to
do their work.
The biggest obstacle to putting such programs into practise is that the average, conscientious citizen is unconvinced
of the need for preventative measures. He is aware that a
serious problem exists but is not at ell sure of the way in which
the problem should be handled.
Because of this hesitation and lack of knowledge it is imperative that local pilot projects be undertaken to prove to the
public that the delinquents, criminals et al can be helped to
achieve a better social and emotional adjustment and to lead
constructive and positive lives in the community.
More Probation
Needed in Canada
Editor's Note: In this article, Social Work student Brian Wharf argues that, if a little
probation is a good thing, a lot more would be a whole lot better. Wharf's article is one ol
several appearing in the Ubyssey today, dealing with various question of concern not only
to social workers, but to the public as well. Other articles, contributed by Social Work students, will be found on this page, as well as on pages four and five.
In  British Columbia recent
statistics show that 1,100 offenders on Probation are presently being supervised by 16
probation officers. The approximate annual cost of maintaining these probationers is $50.00
per person. At the same time
most of them are both employed and leading constructive lives in the community.
In contrast, the annual main*
tenance cost for a variable
1000 state supported inmates
at Oakalla Prison farm is $1,-
500 per person. In terms of
the Provincial Treasury alone,
none will dispute the monetary
advantages of probation.
What is probation? Many
public minded citizens do not
have a clear idea of its meaning and implications. Technically, it is a process of treatment ordered by the Courts
for persons convicted of offences against the law, during
which the individual lives in
the community and regulates
his own life under conditions
imposed by the Courts and
subject to the supervision of
a probation officer. It is not
an act of mercy, punishment,
clemency, or pardon; rather, it
is a form of treatment aimed
at effecting a readjustment of
the attitudes, habits and capabilities of the offender.
The idea of probation as a
form of treatment began in
the New England states abut
1841 and was recognized on a
broader scale in England about
30 years later. In Canada probation is a relatively new way
of dealing with offenders. British Columbia officially adopt-:
ed it in 1942, and during these
15 years its role in the treat
ment of the offender has been
most gratifying; 80% of those
placed on probation have been
classed as successes. This high
percentage is , however, due
in part to the selectivity of the
Magistrates, who, before granting probation, refer the offender to a probation officer
for pre-sentence investigation.
The probation officers, are in
turn selective, suggesting probation in only half of their pre-
s e n te n c e recommendations.
This selection is governed to
some extent by the Criminal
Code which states that probation may be granted only to
first offenders or to those
whose previous offenses date
back at least 5 years. An extension in the area of probation services could, therefore,
only come about as restrictions in the code are lessened
to include ^wider range of offenders.
Last year in Canada 100,000
Canadians went to jail and, of
those, 60T-J- were in custody
90 days or less, indicating the
offenses were not of too serious a nature. Had they been
allowed to report to probation
officers, the expending of public funds would have been
reduced, and the offenders
would not have been faced
with returning to the community to seek jobs after release.
A prison record often results
in ostracism from employers
and other segments of society,
while the inevitable resentment and hostility within the
individual seems to open the
way for further acts of crime.
Through the years we have
continually   sought  new   tech
niques of treatment for the ailments of man. As these methods
have gained acceptance and
proven their validity, they have
been further developed to a
highly skilled degree. Such, for
example, as been the history
of surgery. It is felt that probation too, as a form of treatment, has conquered the test
for survival and is now ready
to expand and offer services to
a wider range of offenders.
How can this be done? As
already suggested, the Criminal
Code would have to be changed
to permit greater use of probation services. This is possible
only by public recognition that
such a need exists. With the
horizons so broadened, pre
sentence reports could be required in most cases before the
Court, certainly for all first
offenders. This would of necessity require more probation
officers to cope with the expanded program of investigation and supervision. Also, the
number of probation centers
would have to be increased to
administrate and carry out the
added services. Such an expansion of personnel and facilities rests with the Department
of the Attorney General which
must act as it recognizes the
need as a reflection of public
The case for more probation
rests ultimately on community
awareness of, and confidence
in, this form of treatment. We,
in the correctional fields must
not, however, minimize our
obligation, for through individual ancKcollective campaigns
of public education, community
support can  be  won!
Life of a Social Worker
As I arose the other morning and heard the dismal pit,
pat of rain on the roof and saw
the miserable grey streaks slide
down thc window pane, I was
reminded of other mornings,
when my instant reaction to
such a sight was. "Another day
with nothing to do but look
at office bound social workers!"
For I was a rural worker
with headquarters in a small
city in the northern Sask. bush
and on such a day my Chevrolet and I retired to a well
earned rest: 1 to sit with my
feet on the desk and it to receive further diagnosis and
iifciiment for undefined difficulties in its adjustment to
snow banks, mud holes, telephone poles, and ditches.
By tiie law of averages a dry,
sunny day was bound to appear
and when it did we were off to
do the week's work. The janitor, stenos, and supervisor
were left behind as social workers in their GM products
spouted forth in all directions,
to meet again at the end of the
week, each replete with tall
tales of the week's adventures.
Everyone counted on unbur

got to town because he had
been driving around the country for two or three days with
only the cows on the road for

Lucy's Storylime," and half a

After having travelled
around a section of your district all day, perhaps adding
another 150-200 miles on your
speedometer which is already
on its second way around, you
look forward witli mingled

Next day, and you're off
(if the car will go) to make

Before setting out, a conference
is held in the municipal office
with the secretary who is the
leading exponent on road conditions and where the NE ' 4

into actual miles and directions
from town. He has also likely
been approached by a seeker
of social aid during the past
week or two and informs you
that lie has advised the person
you will call next in the district. The day is then spent
maneouvering the car over
roads and I racks of every description, of stopping, struggling
with instruments on gates and
walking half a mile through
a field: of hoping that the people in the next house will speak
English; and of chuckling and

a day in which you make a
number of successful calls and
everyone is at home when you
knock. If it is a day like this,
that you've also managed to
stay out of mud holes and away
from tall trees, then you will
likely start back lo the office
with a light heart and a feeling
of good will to all men, as well
as the feeling that perhaps

Burns   Effigy
Of Mike Ames
The players' club, after considerable debate Wednesday,
came to the inevitable conclusion that an effigy of Michael
Ames should be burned on the
main mall.
They burned him at noon
Thursday, to the joy of all true
lovers of culture and the dramatic arts.
No names were revealed as the
disciplinary committee has their
evil eye on the Players' Club.
The effigy was raised to loud
cries of yea and nay, and the
fire lighted with many old and
useless copies of the Raven. The
pile burned well, as all the
words Mr. Ames has written
about the Players' Club were
purified. Many of the cast of
♦'One Hundred Years Old,"
which no doubt Mr. Ames will
find excellent, appeared and

for students are 50 cents. They
may be obtained in the AMS
office or in other local spots.

New York  Reclaimed
By Queens' Students
Watertom, N.Y. (Exchange)—A .dawn attack by 18 unidentified students of Queen's University, temporarily reclaimed
most of Jefferson County, New York State, for the British
crown, in the name of George III. The attack took place on
the anniversary of George Washington's birthday.
The students, reported to be
from Queen's University, hoisted
Union Jacks over school buildings and posted proclamations
in Watertown, Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Lefargeville, all
in Jefferson County, N.Y. This
area was orginally part of the
old Thirteen Colonies.

events took place in these colonies, in the year of our Lord,

To make them appear bon

In most towns, the incident
was taken as a huge joke, but

over the affair. The flags were
quickly taken down by the police.

Proposed Amendments
For   General   Meeting
1. BY-LAW III, 3) xv:
•'The Treasurer will be required to present all contracts
made by the Alma Mater Society to the Students' Council
for ratification." EXPLANATION: This will assure that Council approves the nearly 50 contracts made by the Treasurer
on behalf of the AMS each year. It merely sets down in the
by-laws a procedure followed already.
2. BY-LAW HI, n) iv:
'"Hie P.R.O. shall be an ex-officio member of the University Radio and Televsion Society Executive." EXPLANATION:
This will assure that Council is informed of the activities and
finances of Radsoc, one of the major organizations under the
3. BY-LAW VIII, 5:
"The Treasurer shall deposit a sum calculated on 50 cents
per active member of the Society in a fund known as the Brock
Sinking Fund, such fund to be a first charge on the revenue
of the Society, and to be applied at the absolute discretion
of the Students' Council to the defraying of the depreciation of
the Brock Memorial Building furnishing and equipment." EXPLANATION: As a Society, the AMS does not write off depreciation, and this amendment will in effect charge each year
equally for the cost of maintalng, replacing and adding to
the Brock facilities. In the past, such purchases have been
made heavily during some years and not at all during others,
even though all years share the benefits . . . The Fund will
assure that sufficient monies are set aside to properly furnish
and equip the expanded Brock Hall without concentrating the
cost on any one year.
4. BY-LAW Vffl, 6:
"The Treasurer shall deposit a sum calculated on ten
cents per active member of the Society in the Brock Hall Collection Fund, such fund to be used solely by the Brock Hall
Art Committee for the purchase of paintings by Canadian
artists." EXPLANATION: This year, the AMS granted five
hundred dollars to the Art Committee to start a collection of
paintings by Canadian artists for Brock Hall. It is hoped that
by setting up a permanent art fund a collection to rival that
of Hart House at the University of Toronto can eventually
be established.
''Honorariums: An honorarium shall be granted to the
Managing Editor and the News Editor of the "Ubyssey" consisting of one hundred dollars, to be paid at the end of the
first term." EXPLANATION: It is the opinion of both the Students' Council and the Editor-in-Chief of the Publications
Board that the amount of time and energy the two students
holding the positions of News and Managing Editors of the
"Ubyssey" contribute on behalf of the student body entitles
them to an honorarium. UBC is one of the few universities
in North America not so rewarding its newspaper staff. It is
of interest that the students qualified to hold these positions
are always capable of securing a job with a downtown newspaper as a campus correspondent at substantially higher

Bar presents a few tips on how.
and where to get a summer job.
For Instance, the Omar Peanut
Butter, untouched by human
hands," needs a student with
prehensile toes to shell peanuts
while their chimpansee is on
..Another excellent opportunity
is offered by an elderly spinster
who is planning an extensive
summer tour of Europe and
wants a traveling companion.
She will pay all expenses including accommodation in the
best hotels, and the best food
money can buy. She says it's a
dandy chance to see the world.
Absolutely no experience is required. The only qualification
is that the student be a goldfish.
And Dean Andrew says he
needs a student, preferably in
animal husbandry, to take care
of the Yak he keeps in his back
yard. The Yak was presented
to him by the government of
Outer Mongolia for his work
in the Institute of Pacific Relations.
These are only a few of the
limitless opportunities available
to students, and there are many
more—such as worm-ranching in
the Cariboo, wetback-smuggling
on the Rio Grande and prop-
washing at the airport.
These jobs  will be  filled by
students who will spend a profitable,   happy   summer   in   their
chosen  line  of  work.  The  Tie  .
Bar wishes you luck.
But don't forget when you
apply for that job, no personnel
manager likes to see some slob
in a turtle-neck sweater. Wear
a tie.
And the choice of nine out of
ten personnel managers are ties
from the TIE BAR (712 West
Pender). They're styled to
please everyone from worm-
ranchers to Dean Andrew's Yak. t

To concretely explain and illustrate the type of problems
met and the work done by a
social worker the following two
cases are presented. These cases
illustrate very effectively that
delinquency and social maladjustment can be caused in many
different ways.
Both of the case histories are
true in substance but names and
I details have been changed. These
' cases illustrate too the complexity and magnitude of our social
! problems and the lack of staff
! and facilities to adequately cope
1 with these problems.
;     MM., now aged 22, was born
j three months after her parent's
I marriage.   Her   father   was   21
j at  the  time   of her  birth.  He
had completed grade seven and
had  worked  in  logging camps
along the B.C. coast. During the
early 30's  no work was  avail-
j able. M's mother was  18 when
she gave birth to M. She didn't
I want a child and married only
i to  give   M.   a  name.  She  went
! back  to  her  old  job  a  month
afterwards.   "We   had   to   eat."
M.   and   her   parents   lived   in
a large tenement house. M. was
cared   for  by  anyone   who   felt
so   inclined.   Her   father   found
life   without   a   job   too   much.
Having felt the clubs of the police   in  the  Post   Office  riot  he
became bitter and hostile, spending   much   of   his   time   away
from home.
M. remembers her pro-school
days as most unhappy. She is
bilter because of the many men
entertained by her mother, the
drunken Lira wis which frightened her and the frequent beatings she got when she cried.
M. liked school at first but
!iy the time' she was eight she
was in trouble" at school for
stealing from the children. By
ten she truanted frequently and
failed grade four. Her father
was overseas and she called
another man "daddy." Her mo-
ihcr worked in war industry
and spent much time in the beer
parlours, M. was on her own
and her mother gave her plenty
of money. At twelve M. in company with a fourteen year old
friend took money from her
mother's purse and the two got
as far as Alberta. Detained by
Juvenile authorities there she
wns returned home and severely  reprimanded by her mother.
] A year later she again ran away.
I This time the police returned
I her. Appearing in court she was
I put on probation. She stayed at
I home  and  attended  school  for
a time and then her mother's
[current "boyfriend" started mak-
| ing advances. Again she ran
I away. This time she was return-
! ed and sent to a "reformatory."
She was described  by the staff
i there as sullen, given to temper
j tantrums and unable to get along
! with either the girls or the staff.
There were several A.W.O.L.'s
in which the police returned
j her from skid row. On one oc-
! casion she became so violent
I that she was transferred to a
I hospital   psychiatric   ward   and
subsequently  escaped.
A year after M's release from
the   reforamtory   she   appeared
at a  children's agency requesting help to  plan     for her ex-
| pecteel illegitimate child. M. de-
! cided   to   place   her   child   for
! adoption but on  the birth of a
i little boy she changed her mind
: and    took   him   home.
Within     three    months     the
neighbors were complaining and
thc baby was removed from M's
care. This caused a  new series
of    anto-social     outbreaks.     In
quick  sequence  M.  was  jailed,

Mr. and Mrs. Z. both University graduates successful in
: their respective vocations were
surprised otv evening when they
arrived home to find the police
waiting. It w;:s about their only
son R., age fifteen. Neither parent believed that B. had stolen
a car or taken part in the wanton destruction of school property. Where was B".' The parents explained that he often
slaved out for supper. He had a
generous allowance and often
stayed at a friends or ate out.
But lie couldn't tie responsible.
He had never been in trouble,
always ranked high in his class
at school and was dependable.
When B. came home later, the
police were still waiting. B.
admitted that he had stolen a
car, in fact four altogether, He
, also admitted be had taken
part in the school raid when the
damage amounted to hundreds
of dollars, lie also revealed thai
one of the cars had been heavily
damaged when the gang had
played "chicken" and neither
driver was "chicken."
Why had B. done this?. He
claimed he didn't know. "Just
for something to do I guess."
The Probation Officer is compiling B's background learned
that Mr. and Mrs. Z. hadn't
planned to have children. However Mrs. Z. stayed at home
until B. was twelve and then
went back to work.

Like every student I know,
my monthly income varies between not quite enough and totally inadequate. Thus it was
that about two weeks ago the
wife and I decided to take a
long, hard look at our financial
We first sorted our business
mail into two piles. The one on
the left contained all the letters
that ended on a cheering friendly note: "... we trust that you
will pay this account voluntarily." That was nice. They trusted us. The sort of letters you
keep and read over and over
again. The pile on the right re-
\oaled that, much as it pained
them to do this, they were turning the matter over to their

in this group and threw them

My wile stared dejectedly into

worried, and it behooved me
to  cheer  her  up.
My rapier like wit sprang to
the fore, "They can go to hell.
Can't get blood from stones,
you know!" A cowardly grin lit
up my face and the fear fairly
danced in my eyes. It was then
that  she  lost  her  temper.
Two days later her first words
to me were kindlv but firm. We
, talked   about   the   better   days
i wc  had known, our  "pre-B.C."
| days, when, free from financial
! worry, we had snuggled happily
on the great, flat bosom of Saskatchewan. K  was possible, she
said,  to recapture some of  the
idyllic bliss of those times. But

fostering it in their own children. Spending a little extra to

evolved out of the work done
with emotionally disturbed
children in other locales. In
Vancouver the need is well recognized and some action is being
taken. St. Euphrasia's School,
in the Convent of the Good
Shepherd, has formulated plans
for a treatment centre for girls
between the ages of 13 and 15.
The policy for the new school
indicates that a great deal of
study of new methods has gone
into these plans and that the best
of our present knowledge will
be applied. The special joint
committee of the Vancouver
Community Chest and Council
and the Canadian Association of
Social Workers (B.C. Mainland
Branch) studied the matter and
presented a brief recommending
establishment of a centre for the
treatment of 12 children away
from their own homes as a 'pilot
project' in this kind of treatment
for the community.
The next problem immediately appears. Who is to conduct
treatment? Staff with expert
knowledge, skill and experience
in this special work are essential to such a program.
As students concerned with
problems of human relationships
might we suggest that our university could take a more active
interest in this new and exciting
field of study. The university
setting is ideal in many ways
for" an institution devoted to the
treatment of emotionally disturbed children. The environment is protected, yet as a miniature community, is a bridge to
the larger community the child
must learn to live in. As a program of treatment for emotional
disturbances must embody a
multi-discipline approach, the
university would be able to offer
its experience in the fields of
teaching, social work, psychology, medicine and psychiatry,
etc. Students of these subjects
would benefit from the training
opportunities, and with this
training would be greater volue
to the community they enter.

B. liked school and read a lot.
He didn't like sports and had
no time for the "sissy" stuff
around the school. They met
some kids from another school
who decided it would be a
lark to break into the school
and look around. He hadn't done
anything, In fact h* was glad
to get out when he saw them
turn on the fire hoses and dump
the  desks.
What happens to boys like
B.Z.? Probation or an indefinite
sentence in a Training School.
Probation probably means weekly visits to the Probation Officer
where an over worked poorly
paid probation officer tries tt
The Training School offers little
more than custodial care. There
are no treatment facilities.
Despite long hours and exhausting work by the staff little
can be done. Each boy is seen
briefly once by a Psychiatrist
and Psychologist as a form of
screening but no helpful Psychiatric therapy is available foe
the boy who needs it.
At home his parents continue
in their same ways. Help if they
wish it but no one urges them
to get It. When B. is discharged
he goes back to the same home.
If he lives in Vancouver no
one calls around as there is no
follow up help available.
These two cases seem hopeless. Yet many people are trying
to provide help for the B's and
the M's in the community. The
courts, the schools, the churches,
the social agencies, the police,
the recreational agencies, the
community cen'tres, all are doing their best. Social workers
in these Community Services
are interested and active. Much
progress has been made. Much
more can be done through the
help and support of every interested citizen in insisting on
better rehabilitation and pre™
ventive services for their community. Polled   Students
Hate New Painting
The most favorable student reaction to the new painting
hung in Brock lounge is apathy.
In a poll of Brock Loungers
taken at noon Thursday, the
mildest comment received was
"I can't stand it."
Other reactions ranged from
a serious "they shouldn't have
a thing like that in a university
building,' 'to "it looks like the
living room of the Zete house
on   Sunday   morning."
One student excused the artist,
saying "it's so big he couldn't
get close enough to see  what
he  was doing,"  while  another
congratulated  him,  saying  "he
deserves commendation for his
The fact that the painting is
titleless inspired many aspiring
young art critics to attempt
naming it. Possible titles ranged
from "Drunken Peacocks During
Mating Season" to "Navel Contemplating Tangerene Orange."
Several students said that, due
to a sign hung directly under
the painting, they were under
the impression that the title is
"Lounge Will Be Closed at 1:00
p.m. Today."
But the artist has the undying
gratitude of the Brock janitors.
"For years we've been trying
to stop people sleeping and eating lunches in the lounge," one
commented, "and ever since that

UBC   Downs Albertans
After downing the University

Prairies this week, UBC became
the unofficial possessor of the
Western Canadian Collegiate
crown. This was the first time
that B.C. met the Alberta team,
who last year beat out Saskatoon and Manitoba to win the
Western title. Next year UBC
intends to include Manitoba and
Saskatoon in their schedule.
Led by their top ylayers, Ken
Noble, Chuch Forbes, Mary Jean
Levlrs, Joan VanAckeron and
the coaching of Pat Montgomery,
the varsity team opposed Alberta in a total of 40 matches,
resulting in only 7 UBC losses.
Ken Noble and Chuck Forbes
held top honours in the Men's
doubles with their clean smashes
and tricky over-head backhands,
while Marey Jean Levirs and
Joan Van Ackerton proved outstanding i n both Women's
doubles and singles. Ian Lamont,
also a specialist in Men's singles,
teamed up with Pete Godfrey,

BC Playoff
Back from what might be termed an unsuccessful trip
to California, Albert Laithwaiic's Varsity rugby 15 resume
McKechnie Cup action aganst Norwests in Varsity Stadium
Saturday at 2 p.m.
A combination of the North
Shore All-Blacks and Kats, the
Norwests 15 should feature a
spoiling, but rough and tumble
brand of rugger. Laithwaite
hopes "they'll fight among
themselves." This will be the
second McKechnie test for the
Varsity crew, who previously
defeated Victoria • Reps 24-9.
Norwests battled ot an 8-8 saw-
off with Vancouver Reps last
week at Brockton.
A question in the minds of
UBC rugby fans now might be
"What happened in California?''
It appears the same question
worries coaches Laithwaite and
"After we lo. t that first game
15-0." declared Albeit, 'Max
(Howell) and I didn't know what
1o tell the boys. They didn't do
anything wrong, besides get
offside." The coaches, on the
whole, were quite pleased with
Ihe performance of the Varsity
15 according" to Laithwaite.
Don Spence phiyed #w ell. along
with inside centre Tom Anthony,
who played steady, though not
sparkling rugby. Ted Hunt
turned in two unsurpassable performances, and Don Shore was
outstanding in the Varsity pack,
which, despite Cal's tremendous
weight advantage, overwhelmed
the Bear's forwards in the set
A combination of UBC mistakes, which resulted in penalties, and the toe of one Noel
Bowden were the stones which
sank the Varsity. Bowden kicked, kicked, and kicked again.
Not once, in six games, swears
Albert, has Bowden ever passed
the ball. He just kicks. The
score in the World Cup series is
now 26-9 for California. Of these
26 points, Bowden has kicked
17 of them.
The UBC 15 suffered three
injuries in California. Hooker
Dick Mcintosh had his foot
stepped on and received a possible fracture of a foot bone,
and Bob McLeod dislocated hi.s
elbow. The joint is now puffed
up and resembles an overripe
plum. On the glummer side big
forward Derek Vallis suffered
an injury which will put him
out  of action  for three  weeks.
