Miss UBC To Be
Chosen At Arts
Autumn Formal
0   HIGHLIGHT of the Fall Ball will be the selection of
Miss UBC, the typical coed; but that won't be all! There
will be a floor show, refreshments and a pep meet.
Held instead of the Arts-Aggie, the Fall Ball will take
place on November 23, in the Commodore. The ball committee, made up of members of the various faculty undergraduate executives, would like to make it clear that this
is not a faculty dance, but a UBC affair.
Carrying    out    the    university ■
theme,   the   chorus   line  will  be       /^ai I
made up of dancing girls repre- ^nAfACtCr
senting all the faculties in the respective faculty sweaters. Rhys
Thomas' orchestra will provide the
music, and a brand new campus
song, supposedly written by Eric
Ajello, and based on the ball
theme, will be presented for the
first time anywhere.
Each faculty will have its own
nominee for Miss UBC, and one of
the following women will reign
over the ball: first year, Jackie
Robinson; second year, Dale
Couglin; third year Joan Clarke;
fourth year Phyllis Ney* Aggie,
Joan Stephens; Nurses, Dolores
Traer; Home Economics, Sylvia
Dyson; and Commerce Peggy Holt.
Admission price to the ball will
be $3.00 a couple, and all proceeds
will go to the War Aid Council.
Members of the committee are
feuding madly over the name of
the ball. At this time, it is known
under the name of the Autumn
Formal, the Undergraduate Formal and the Fall Ball. But, no matter what it will eventually be called, the committee guarantees that
it will be good.
"Take a doll
To the FaU Ball
And we'll all crawl
To the .Pall Mall".

• As this is the final event on
UBC's social calendar before the
Christmas exams, it should take
everyone's mind off their scholastic sorrows for a short time, according to the committee in charge.
WUS Plans Skits

• COMPETITIVE skits will be
the major event of the evening at the WUS "and so to Bed"
Hi-Jinx Party on Thursday, November 9.
Eight five - minute dramatic
endeavours will be presented In
the gym, and are guaranteed to
keep the drowsy coeds awake.

Marjorie Hood; Commerce, Glen-
na McLeish; Agriculture, Joan
Stevens; Nursing, Helen Kerr; and

Annoys UBC
the department of Phychology
and Philosophy had a "suite"
time last week.
One of the examples from a
Psych, text on Abnormal Psychology escaped from between cloth
bound covers and inserted a classified ad in one of the afternoon
papers stating that a prize suite In
the West End sporting all the modern conveniences of apartments
that people can't get these days
was "For Rent,"—apply Prof. „.
A. Irving, UBC.
The switchboard operator at the
University was deluged with 300
calls for the mythical Utopia, and
Prof. Irving had the operator forestall the calls.
Practical jokes struck again in
the same place in the same week
as a bogus notice cancelling Phil.
1 lectures appeared on the Arts
notice board. Prof. Irving shrugged his shoulders and offered a
prayer to Seneca, Plato. Aristotle
and scientific truths.
Registers For Xmas
is starting once more to recruit members for Christmas jobs.
The flnal arrangements have not
yet been completed but aplica-
tions will be taken about the middle of next week.
The exact date for applications
will be announced over the. Public Address System, and will also
be put on the notice boards.
Brian Burke, the director of the
Bureau, wants all students who
need Christmas fobs to put in
their applications as early as possible.
There are still many openings
for work in the Brock. Registering
for this has been very poor and
help is needed urgently.
Registration will also continue
for both men and women who
want part-time jobs in any other

Totem Enlargements
• DRAWING FOR prizes of free eight by ten Totem picture
enlargements, Kay Locke, wife of Steffens-Colmer photographer, produced the names of John Green, second year
Artsman, and freshette Joy Eyres at the Phrateres formal
Thursday evening.
Green. Editor of the 1945 Totem,
relinquished his prize, saying, "I
do not think it fair that a member
of the staff should win." He subsequently drew the name of Leonard Taylor, fifth year Applied
Joy, shaking to her fellow students at the dance, could say only
that she was "delightfully surprised." She has not yet seen her
picture but said she planned to
give one of her three pictures to
her boy friend in the Air Force
and one to her sister, also in the
Air Force.
When notified of his good fortune, the other winner, Len Taylor, said simply, "Oh, fer gosh
sakes, that's the first blinkin' draw
I ever won." He plans td present
one of his pictures to his mother
and one to his "one and only."
Mrs. Locke drew the names in
the absence of AMS Secretary
Helen  Morgan.
Because of the large classes and other difficulties In respect of
accommodation, it has been found necessary to make the following
change commencing November 3rd:—

G.G. McGeer Speaks to
Commercemen Tues.
O   COMMERCEMEN will gather Tuesday, November 7, to
hear G. G. McGeer, K.C, MP., address them on "Vancouver's Post-War Commercial and Industrial Expansion."
As Mr. McGeer is an expert on       __——______^______
money and banking it is expected
that he will discuss the topic very
thoroughly, and throw light on
the subject of post-war jobs for
Commerce graduates,
The meeting scheduled for 12:30
Tuesday in Arts 100 is of especial
interest to Commercemen, but Stu
Porteus, President of CUS, invites
all those who are interested in the
subject to attend.
Friday of the same week is the
date for the Commerce class party.
Tickets for this affair, which is
strictly informal, will be distributed from the Quad. Commerce-
men may obtain theirs' free by
showing their passes, outsiders will

Survey Shows Need
For Medical Faculty
• THERE ARE about 165 or more pre-med students on
this campus this year, all waiting to get into medical
faculties at other universities. These universities will
only admit around 30, according to a Medical School Survey
conducted by Alan Macfarlane, president of the Monro Pre-
Med Club.
———-——-————■—— This year's registration  of  pre-
med students is the largest ever.
It nearly trebles that of last year.
And there are still more to register
he stated at a meeting of the Club
on Friday.
Briefly, the situation is this.
Third and fourth year students
applying to medicdl faculties this
year number 65. Thirty at the
most will get in. This leaves thirty
five holding the bag.
Roughly, fifty students are registered in second year and fifty in
"So the thirty that don't make
medical school this year will swell
next year's total. Thus the situation will grow worse each year,''
he said.
"It is therefore imperative that
a medical faculty is established at
this university.
"Such a move would enable students to finish their training here,
without waiting to gain admission
to other overcrowded universities.
Doctors are urgently needed in
B.C., and the establishment of a
medical faculty here would fill this

Players Present
'Johnny Dunne'
• "NINETY - NINE   per   cent
straight liar."
Quoted directly from "Johnny
Dunne" is this description of the
title role of a play to be presented
by the Players' Club in the annual
fall plays to be held on November
15, 17,18.
Since the plot is basically a series of improbable stories following the Baron Munchausen tradition, the auditorium should be
filled all three nights, especially

The three main roles are being
played by the following: The Narrator, Brian Burke; Johnny Dunne, the Albertan prevaricator,
Murray Sager.; Mrs. Dunne, a
possessive  wife.
A chorus of more than a dozen
will personify wolves, geese, children, and people of Alberta.
"The play will prove a new
venture on the UBC stage. This
part group and choral work Is the
latest and newest idea to come
from the Banff School of Drama,"
said English.

Phrateres To Sell
Poppies Next Week
• MEMBERS of Phrateres will
sell    poppies    next    Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday on the
campus. Each chapter will take a
morning, and all women will be
on duty for an hour each time.
• PHOTOS for the Totem
may  still  be   taken   at
the Steffens-Colmer studios
at 560 Granville Street, next
Tuesday and Wednesday
from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., as a
result of special intercession
by Students' Council.
Members of Council, like publications officials, are disappointed
in the astonlthlngly poor turnout
of students. Unlike the Publications Board, Council is confident
that many more will yet turn out
if given the opportunity.
In former years, when UBC had
the only yearbook in Canada to
receive an All-American rating
from the National Scholastic Press
Association, which judges yearbooks from all over the continent,
an Important feature of the book
was that it included pictures of
almost 100 percent of the student
"This was possible to a large extent because student pictures were
on their passes, consequently nearly, everyone got their pictures
taken", stated John Green, Totem
"They certainly don't seem very
interested in whether they have
a good annual or not. And no
annual can be good with only half
the students' photos in it, which
is what has happened to the Totem
this year," explained Green.
The following 10 students have
not yet had retakes and are requested to have them taken at the
above time and place: E. M. But-
terworth, J. G. Gillis, N. Elia, E.
Winch, Y. B. Summerset, A. F.

Parlt. Forum Favors
Post-War Controls
• POST-WAR controls are beneficial was the agreement of
a majority of the Parliamentary
Forum members at a meeting of
the Forum on Thursday noon.
Two freshmen took oposing
sides in the debate "Resolved that
war control measures should be
maintained during the period of
reconstruction and reconversion."
Bob Harwood supported the resolution which passed despite the
opposition presented by Alan Roe-
Bob Harwood stated that Canada's war measures caused her
standard of living to rise only 1%
a year, whereas Newfoundland's
has risen 60%, Ireland's 70%, Chi-
np's 6000% and Canada's during
the last war, 57.6%.
He emphasized that the inevitable result of no effective controls
during reconstruction would be
inflation followed by deflation.
After V-Day and demobilization,
there will be approximately two
million people, servicemen and war
workers in search of jobs. Bob
Harwood said that only through
an organization such as the National Selective Service could the
flow of labour be suitably directed.
Alan Roeher, speaking against
the resolution, felt that the period
of reconstruction might last for
"several generations.' If controls such as we have during the
war are kept on, the people of
Canada would defeat their purpose in the war and put themselves in the like position of Germany's people.
These various war controls,
such as price control, freezing of
wages, salaries, etc., were interpreted by Roeher as protecting the
industrialist. He thinks that if
such measures continue to operate in the reconversion period, the
worker will be under the thurnb
of the industrialist who uses the
government for a mouthpiece.
Members from the House then
spoke concerning the problem"~in
question. The Selective Service
was designed to help overcome the
shortage of labour during wartime, but after the war with the
influx of so many thousands wanting employment, the National Selective Service will not be needed. Thus spoke Hal Daykin for
the  opposition. Page Two

The Great "Policy" Debate
After a great "policy" debate Monday
night Students' Council granted its sanction
for expenditures which benefit small campus
groups, but which do not benefit the student
body as a whole. This means that clubs will
be assisted financially in their activities,
most of which are purely educational in
their aim, such as field, trips and other intellectual pursuits.
It took a great deal of debating to settle
this question because the merits of both
sides of the argument cannot be defeated
easily. There were those on Council who
believe that all AMS expenditures should
go to activities which benefit, or could benefit if students desired, the whole of the student body, and that the. AMS should not
grant money for educational purposes. They
believe that pep meets, pass features and
dances are designed for every student and
are therefore justified. They believe that
education is up to the Administration.
On the other side there are those who
hold up the AMS constitution, which states
that one of the Society's aims is the advancement of the cause of learning, and maintain
that it is just to spend money on education.
They claim that the University clubs are
a direct responsibility of the AMS and that
therefore the Society should support their
activities with financial aid.
Those on the side of education won the
debate, and The Ubyssey is inclined to agree
with them at this stage in the development
of the University. In the first place, our
opponents are arguing idealistically. It
would be very difficult to find many expend
itures of the AMS which actually benefit
the majority of the student body. Only 850
students can crowd into a pep meet. How
many students take home their personal
copy of this paper to have and to hold for
their very own? Very. few persons enjoy
sports expenditures at UBC. This is, perhaps, being a little too practical, but it is
one of the things to consider at this time.
If we have the money, why not support
club activities? The Alma Mater Society
is one of the great forces behind clubs on this
campus. It urges their organization, passes
on their constitution and has final say on
their activities. There is no reason why it
cannot support them with some of that
money in the treasury.
Idealism can also be used in the argument for financial support of clubs to defeat
the main reason some council members put
up for not granting the money. The theory
of our student government at this university
is based on club representation on Council.
Clubs are a part of our student organization
and theoretically there are clubs on this
campus to suit every student. Then, by
theory, Council can cheerfully grant money
to these clubs for educational pursuits, going
on the assumption that the expenditures are
for every student because every student is in
a club—or if he isn't he has no' good reason
not to be.
It might raise club membership to a
fantastic figures if students knew Council
was granting their money to these organizations.
Fox Hole Atheists
Rev. Byron Green, who addressed a
student meeting Wednesday, scored a good
point against this "no atheists in a foxhole"
philosophy which has arisen from this war
and seems to be the one force driving the
world back to religion, if one assumes in
the first place that the world is "away" from
Said Rev. Green: "In England there are
many who call themselves atheists, but I
have yet to see a person who has been an
atheist under a flying bomb attack. Too
many of us have this attitude in our relations
to God. We like to use Him only when we
have no other alternative."
This we would like to throw in the faces
of those American war correspondents who
write back home from the Pacific of the
miraculous reformation of the U.S. soldier
in this war, braying piously the phrase
"there are no atheists in a fox hole."
This is not our theory of religion, that
one seeks the aid of God only when orfe
needs it desperately. We think it is a very
hypocritical attitude. The person who is
forced into religion cannot remain a true
Christian very long.
As Rev. Green said, these people "must
get off the fence—we must be either true
Christians and accept God or become
•    people and things ■ ■ ■hcaiwhitehead
•   IT HAS BEEN described elsewhere in
this sheet, of the recent changeover in
pep-meet organization.
The Radio Society has been asked by
the Students' Council to organize this year's
pep-meetings jointly with the Mamooks. To
my mind this is a decided change for the
Pep-meets i n former
years with the exception of
a very limited few, have been
very bad exhibitions of student initiative. Each and
every one of them was organized for a specific purpose
but the purpose played a
minor role in the presentation of the meet.
And there we have the case as in former years. The purpose was there and the
pep-meet was there. The third essential,
however, was generally always missing. That
was the coordination between the first two.
That is the basis for my statement that
it was a good thing for the Radio Society
to be in on the organization of pep-meets
for this year.
The Radio Society has the knowledge
and the people to put over successfully, a
pep-meet which fully advertises its theme.
That will be the job of the Radio Society in the pep-meets: to waft the purpose
gently in front of your collective faces. They
won't just say, as was in former years: "We
are gathered here today to extract money
from you to help swell the coffers of the
Sciencemen Disabilities Fund. Pay as you ,
go out the door—take it away Maestro
They will extract the money from you
painlessly. They will pamper you with a bit
of corn or a bit of drama.
In short, you will get an all-round show
in your noon-hour.
As always an orchestra will be on hand
to provide the main attractive force to the
show. The Radio Society will be on hand
to provide a "meaty" subject, (ham to you).
And the Mamooks will be on hand, as ever,
to provide the cheer-leading, if necessary,
or any odd things that may fall into their
The Mamooks this year, shorthanded
and overworked, have not found it possible
to keep up with the demand on their labors.
Consequently, part of their traditional responsibilities have been transferred to the
"Radsoc". (My appoligies to Mr. Ajello for
using that phrase. Radio Society members
abhor any such nickname for their beloved
and sacred organization.)
But even pleasing as the news of the
"new pep-meet" may be, the Radio Society
is in a dilemma. Alas, they are a club without a clubroom.
They have been using Room G in the
Aggie building as a clubroom since the beginning of the semester, but they are only
there through the courtesy of the Extension
Receiving notice that they have to vacate that room they have scouted around
the campus to find another room. The best
that was available to them was the Book
Exchange office in the North basement of
the Brock. Even that will not be available
until after the Book Exchange people are
through and have gone.
I would like to suggest that they be
given the room in the top floor of the North-
West wing of the Auditorium building to
use as a Club room.
At any rate they should be given a room
suitable to them so that they may give us
more and better pep-meets.

Manners of Students in
Street Cars Criticized
• UNIVERSITY students have
no consideration for others,
according to a letter in November
3's B.C. Electric Buzzer, from Mrs.
J. D. Mather, 4626 West 9th Avenue.
"While we toll during the morning these young people have been
sitting at lectures. If we are
lucky we may be allowed to board
the car before them. Very often,
we are pushed out of the way."
Mrs. Mathers "observed girls
holding seats for their pals. They
look very surprised when I suggested they release a seat to me."
She regrets that apparently "higher education does not include con-
sideratioifior older people."
To Mrs. Mathers, "It is an ob
ject lesson in manners to share
the cars with the university students. Many times last year and
again this season, we busy housewives, mothers carrying infants,
and often leading a small child by
the hand, and elderly gentlemen,
white headed and bent, have occasion to go to town. We all have
tried hard to finish our work to
leave around noon and two
o'clock, and since the university
students claim all the seats, others must stand.
"Good manners being made up
of little sacrifices a word to the
aspirants of higher education may
bear fruit," was the concluding
statement of Mrs. Mathers.
Power and Signals
ShaVe Electronics Field
(Special to The Ubyssey)
• DAYTON, Ohio, November 3.
—Electronics, now a part of the
electrical Industry, promises to be
one of the new tools in the fields
of endeavour for the electrical engineer as well as the radio engineer. So stated Dr. E. F. W. Alex-
anderson, consulting engineer and
radio expert in an address here
at the Institute of Radio Engineers
The new branch of electrical
engineering known as electronic
engineering belongs equally In the
signalling industry and the power
industry, Dr. Alexanderson pointed out.
"The electronic industry has
also branched out into the power
industry by furnishing not only
means for signalling and control
of power functions, but also means
for direct conversion of power for
such purposes as power transmission by direct-current electronic
frequency changers and operation
of a-c motors at variable speed,"
he explained.
"All this brings to mind that a
too-high specialization among
electrical engineers is dangerous,"
he continued. "The specialist has
limited objectives and limited
knowledge. His endeavors are to
make his product more efficient
and cheaper to produce.
"On the other hand, there is a
new generation of electrical engineers clamoring for new fields to
conquer. The very life of industry depends upon our ability to
think of new and useful things to
do in order to maintain the employment in industry which our
economists tell us must be realized if we are going to avoid a
disastrous depression."

Undemocratic China Hit
By Chinese Army Doctor
• TORONTO, November 4—(CUP)—In an address to the
International Affairs Club at the University of Toronto,
Dr. R. F. Brown of the Chinese Communist Army Medical
Corps, stated that the present government in China is far
from being democratic, that, in fact, China has never even
had an election.
Toronto Stadium
Host to
• TORONTO, Ont., November 3
-(CUP) Varsity stadiums have
been used for a variety of purposes but something new has been
added at the University of Toronto,
The space under the stadium is
at present reserved for a Fairey
Battle Bomber which has been
brought to its present location by
Professor Loudon of the new Aeronautical Engineering course at
the University of Toronto.
Primarily the plane has been
obtained for use by the Navy Engineers, who will take a course In
aircraft maintenance some time ln
the near future. But In securing
the aircraft, Prof. Loudon said he
had more in mind than that; the
plane will remain there long after
the Navy course has gone, and tho
students in the Aeronautical
course will have the opportunity
to study its structure.
Prof. Loudon stated that it U
most important for an aeronautical engineer actually to see how
construction plans are carried out
and wrestle with some of the
problems which cannot be foreseen during the blueprint stage.
Particular attention will be paid
to hydraulic design and to the operation of flaps, controls, and to
their installation.
The engine mount wiS also be
studied, as this usually presents
numerous difficulties in construe-
toin and assembly.
Dr. Brown said that the Chinese
Communist Party resembled fundamentally the Russian Communist
Party In that the most enthusiastic members of the Party are
students of the Universities. Anyone who opposes the military dictatorship is labelled a Communist.
He explained that people outside
China often think that its government ls democratic fighting
against the invading power of militarism. All that the Communists
want is a popular government, to
develop a great national China
which will be able to take her
place in the world.
The Communists are bitter about
past exploitation of their natural
resources by foreign countries,
stated Dr. Brown. He believed
that this has caused much adverse
feeling towards members of .the
United Nations, he added.
Dr. Brown is a graduate of the
Toronto Medical School and was
a doctor in St. Paul's Hospital in
Honan up till the time of the Japanese invasion of that province.

LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
• ror men
• WELL THEY beat me to the draw. I came down to this
den of iniquity all set to blast teams that weren't turning out
to their intramural games and suggest that they have the
decency to stop wasting everybody's time and get out of the
league. Matters apparently have been taken out of their
hands as the intramural board is going to throw them out.
Our congratulations to the board for their action.
Seeing as how that leaves me without any material to
write a column on intramurals and we're desperate for space
today, I'll pass on to another pet peeve, the attitude of outsiders to Varsity basketball teams.
Those of you who read the Province sports page have
no doubt run across the writings of one Bill Cunningham.
I wonder if he makes you froth at the mouth also. The point
is that he does not walk alone, he merely reflects the opinion
of a great many other minor league officials and sports
And so once more we raise the cry, "nobody understands
us". Seriously though, most of the people who criticize us
don't really know a great deal about University life and
they labour under many serious misapprehensions.
Chief among these'is the idea that teams out here have
nothing to do but practice. Now that sounds as silly as,
well, to anyone out here, but try to convince any downtowner
that the gym is booked full and that the kids have to do a
little work occasionally and he'll laugh in your face. I know,
one of them did in mine.
Then, every year comes the story of men playing for
outside teams. From the tone of the articles written the
impression is that we have vast numbers of players whom we
lock in closets. Of course, the fact is that not one team out
here has any excess of players.
That there is some basis ln what I say is typified by the
conversations I've had with some of this year's freshmen
before and after they came to Varsity. The change in their
attitude is really amazing. The point is that before they
came and saw our problems they just couldn't envision them.
Of course after the war these problems will be somewhat less of a worry. The time is coming when intercollegiate
basketball will come to UBC and commercial leagues will
look lilce peanuts beside that. Then the question of players
wanting to go to outside teams will vanish and we can give
Vancouverites some idea of what basketball really' is. In
the meantime all we can do is feel sorry for all and sundry
individuals who take sly digs at us. They just can't help it,
they don't know any better.
Higbies Take Two Tilts
In Inter Hoop Contests
• TWO MORE Inter 'B' games
and a Senior 'B" fixture were
held at the King Ed House of Basketball Thursday night. In the
Senior Division, Higbies came from
behind in the last minute of a
thriller to defeat a hard fighting
Stacy squad 27-26.
The brand of ball was very similar to former Senior 'B' exxhibi-
tions. One of the Stacy stalwarts
was continually urging on his fellow commandoes with the fighting
words "hit 'em low!" Actually the
game was a closely-contested affair.
Stacys started the fireworks early,
due mainly to the efforts of Charlie
Lancaster. Lanky Chuck was the
high scorer of the game netting 12
points. Stacys held their lead till
the last stanza and then things
started to happen.
Soon the score was 22-all and
from then on the score see-sawed
back and forth and the final whistle
found Higbies on top by a narrow
one point margin.
In the Inter B' contest, Tookes
camo through with their third victory of the year when they put
down Higbies Westerns 37 - 31.
Tookes are now in possession of
second place in the standings with
Heather Cubs on top. The Milton-
men put up a stiff fight but the
Shirtmen were just too good for
them.   Cam  McLeod was, for the
third   time,   the   high   scorer   for
Tookes, this time netting 10 points.
The third Higbies team to go on
the floor managed to slaughter the
inexperienced Vancouver College
boys 35-13. Bob Mills turned in
another fine game for the Higbie
squad with 10 points to his credit.
• LOVERS OF 'Le Jazz Hot'!
There Is a group of men and
women on the campus who are
working towards the formation of
a University Jazz Club.
A meeting to discuss the merits
and demerits of such an organization will be held in Arts 108 next
Monday at 12:30. An executive will
be elected and the purpose of the
club will be explained to all those
who attend.
The brains behind the movement
would like to see Arts 108 completely filled with jazz fiends and
also those who harbour a hidden
leaning to the Jazz side of the musical world, announced one of the

Lois Reid has planned a Bowling
Tournament to cover all the co-eds
on the campus and is to be run
along the general line of intramurals. The first games will be
played off Monday afternoon and
il is estimated that about 60 co-eds
will roll the balls down the alley.
Archery is being put into the

Sunday evening to attend the National Convention of Physical Education at Winnipeg. Miss Moore
will return Tuesday.
Miss Moore journeyed to this

of representing our province of
B.C. in recreation.. Because of the
fact that the students at UBC
wanted Miss Moore to represent
them and the province, this trip
was made possible. Grand Spirit

Varsity Hockeyists Bow To
Strong Arrow Puck Squad
•    YARSTIY'S entry in the newly formed intercity junior
hockey league went through a rather embarassing workout Thursday night when they bowed before a superior team
of Arrows at the Forum.
Johnny Clarke's rough and ready charges worked on
the collegiates in a rather thorough way. First and most
important was the score which, by the way, was 7-1 for the
Arrows. Secondly the work-out was in a more physical
style. Arrows' big defenseman Johnny Gorman and Roddie
McLeod, ex-Burrard lacrosse player, were the chief antagonists that the Varsity boys had to contend with. The first was
told off by referee Don Gillis and the second spent lots of
time in the sin-bin.
The Students didn't seem to be
in the best of condition but for that
matter neither did the Arrows. The
season is still young. The boys will
be in better shape once the regular schedule has been started. The
opening game Is on November 16
so that both coaches still have lots
of time to get their teams shaped
Somerton, flashy Arrow forward,
took the point honours in the game
with two goals and an assist. Between battles, McLeod managed to
score a goal and he also took part
in two others.
Ted Vevlin was the only Varsity
man to put the rubber past the
agile Arrow goal-keeper, or rather,
goal-keepers. The Clarke men
tried out three goalies during the
tussle. The present manager of
the UBC squad, Ted Taylor, has
high hopes that the team will turn
into a smooth working machine
before very long.

and the Clubbers are slated to
meet in the feature at 3:30.
On Wednesday, Coach Dan Doswell put the players through a
stiff practice in preparation for the
cleanup. The punters are digging
in and should be in great shape,
which is an outstanding factor on
a winning team.
