e A NEED for officers for reinforcements la foreseen ln the
announcement made by the orderly room that applications for
Oordon Head training after Christmas will be accepted. Those men
already qualified will be given
preference but applications will
be accepted from men who are
not qualified but who merit special   consideration.
Noon hour lectures have been
granted for 4th and 5tn year men
talcing Applied Science. The times
allotted are 12:45 and 13:25 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and
Friday in Arts 100. This relieves
the strain upon the time of those
red shirts who wish to have their
afternoons  and  evenings  clear.
One Man's
e LAST WEEK Dean Dorothy Mawdsley, at the
suggestion of the Ubyssey,
contacted the officials of the
Vancouver post office and
discovered that between 250
and 300 part-time employees
would be taken on by that
office to handle the Christmas rush.
However, prior to the Dean's
Inquiry city high schools had been
notified, with the result that senior matrlc students in the city had
a head start In obtaining the positions.
It ls no one's fault that the University students were not informed sooner. It merely emphasized
the need for an employment bureau at  this  university.
We have two organizations on
the campus which are supposed
to handle  this work.
In the registrar's office one may
obtain forms to fill out when a
atudent desires employment, these
are then kept on file. IF employers
call up then an attempt to fill hla
requirements ls made. It Is obvious that this system Is Inadequate, and Improvement Is not
likely as the staff in the administration office have enough to do
already with their own work,
without taking on the extra load.
Dean Mawdsley has made a
commendable start In aiding students to gain employment to help
defray the cost of their studies.
A simple filing system has been
Inaugurated, and attempts to contact employers has met with considerable   success.
After Christmas Miss Mawdsley
hopes to have opportunities for
summer employment for women
But once again we have a single
department tackling a full time job
aa an addition to their own work.
Regardless of the excellent beginning the Dean has made, it is apparent that she will not be able to
develop the work very far without  more  assistance.
The time for the administration
of the U.B.C. to open a full-time
employment bureau Is the present.
The shortage of labour due to the
war makes it comparatively easy
to obtain employment, but after
the war groat difficulties will no
doubt  be  encountered.
Therefore if a bureau was set up
now and competently run, It
would receive co-operation from
employers and would be ln a position to supply real service in
harder  times.
Employers would no doubt appreciate the service as It would
provide them an opportunity to
contact and select the people most
suited   to    their   requirements.
Columbia University in New
York has one of the best systems
on the continent. They have an
elaborate filing system on both
employers and employees, and a^e
able to provide a desirable function in a manner satisfactory to
both   sides.
This plan Is not one that could
be developed over-night, but a
carefully constructed program
could   be   introduced.
It is up to thc administration to
brln£f someone in who would be
competent to handle the program
and to placo the plan on a sound
basis lather than tho slip-shod
manner in which it is now conducted.

It could be arranged. The question
was: how arrange it? It had never

got their heads together. Then
armed with paradigms, lecterns,

taking command of the situation
at the moment of crisis, he rose
from his desk, drew himself to

e CAIRO, NOV. 21.—British Imperials, storming across
the Libyan Desert through feeble German and Italian defense
lines, have captured Rezegh, on an escarpment only 10 miles
southeast of the long-besieged British garrison at Tobruk.
The first German tank column encountered, west of Ca-
puzzo on the Libyan-Egyptian border, fled without a fight,
the communique said, while at Bir El Gobi, 37 miles south
of Tobruk an Italian force resisted with the result "a number
of" Italian tanks were destroyed and 150 Italians were captured.
• BERLIN, NOV. 21. — German sources disputed the success of Britain's dramatic dash Into Axis-held Libya, claiming
the assault was repulsed with heavy losses.

them their "battle will affect the whole course of the war,"
the War Office revealed today.

•  From  The  Editor's  Pen  »  »  »
• THIS ISSUE of the Ubyssey is dedicated
to the theological part of our University..
While the University itself has no official
religious content, it granted sites on the
campus to such of tho larger religious denominations as planned their ministries to
be trained in a wider than merely religious
atmosphere. Colleges erected on these sites
are given representation on the University
Senate, and their students can substitute
specified Theological subjects for Arts subjects in proceeding to the degree of B.A.
These colleges are affiliated with the University. So far the Church of England in
Canada and the United Church of Canada
have availed themselves of this privilege.
They erected Theological Faculties, and had
their buildings ready when the University
moved to Point Grey. Here the two Colleges do some of their work in cooperation.
The number of Theological students is
necessarily small in comparison with those
taking Arts and Science. But this does not
mean service is less Influential or vital. Like
Law students, they are few in number but
represent a necessary part of society. There
are many branches of learning with few students, but one could not imagine a civilization without them.
Theology has had an honorable and vital
place ln education. Once it was known as
the Queen of Sciences and there was little
education in Christendom except what was
fostered by the Church. Modern education
has swung to the other extreme with the
evolution of society. Neither extreme is
good. Mediaeval scholastic philosophy drew
maps of the world with Jerusalem as the
centre, which was absurd. Modern science
haa filled the worlc. with instruments of terrible destruction, and the result is worse
than absurd. Education without religion,
and religion with a narrow education alike
end in frustration and defeat.
There is no possible danger of theology
ever dominating education again, but we are
grateful for many signs that education ia
finding out its poverty of content and frult-
lessness of result in going to the extreme ln
neglecting it. In British Columbia at last
the education Department haa made Bible
Study a recognized option for matriculation
requirements. In many leading Universities
in Canada, theological subjects may be taken
by Arts students as options for their degrees.
We are moving toward a more balanced system of study.
The great enemy of a balanced education today is the extreme specialism which
prevails. A university student goes forth
knowing at most a mite of one subject and
may be the narrowest personality imaginable. Often in proportion to this narrowness
he thinks he has an education. The churches
endeavour to save their ministries from narrowness by training them in colleges in the
wider contacts of Arts and Science. On the
other hand it ls quite possible that an Arts
or Science student might be enriched and
deepened and broadened with some knowledge of Theology. The day may come when
theological colleges will play a greater part
in our Universities.
The great justification of a religious element in Education is the fact that life includes more than the things we can weigh
with instruments, or even the culture and
relationships of men. Beyond the force that
science discovers and measures, or the mere
culture of the,human mind in the sphere of
Arts, is something more. Faith steps in
where these end it searches a different
sphere and brings into life ideals and Influences and results just as real as matter
or pure thought. This is the sphere of Theology.
The recognition of this is growing and
augurs a happier day. Once Science explored the universe and posited no Ood. Increasingly scientists have confessed that in
this science has gone outside its field. Its
limits are the material universe and lt must
leave to the theologian the fields which can
only be entered by faith. On the other hand
theology has accepted many conclusions of
the scientists and has found itself on firmer
ground ln ao doing.
The relations of theology with Humanism are less clear cut. But each needs the
other. Theology needs the cultural influence
of Humanism and the latter only shines with
a flickering flame when the tougher moral
atmosphere of theology gives it oxygen to
On all counts the University should
welcome the presence of theological colleges
on the campus.
The Minister's "Work"
Guest Editorial By Rev. H. R. Trumpour,    B.A., D.D.
• DOUBTLESS ALL theological students
or would-be students, do not feel called
to undertake social work. Their interest
simply does not lie along that line. Dean
Inge, when he was the Incumbent of St.
Paul's, London, said to a group of students,
"The gospel is good news, not good advice.
The Labour Movement can provide its own
hired advocates, but the business of the
clergy is to preach the gospel and tell the
All of this may be true enough; yet, even
for those who are concerned about the minimum rather than the maximum of service,
there may still be some incentive to consider the problem of social welfare. In faot,
it is difficult to see just where the average
minister fits into the picture, unless he knows
something of the functions of society.
I have heard students recently explaining publicly why they were called to the
ministry and I noticed that in the majority
of cases it was because they felt the urge
toward social justice.
First of all, then, the very trends ln
social work at the present time demand the
presence of the minister. Personally, If I
were taking up the task of the ministry today, I know of no challenge which would
appeal with greater force than this. The
tendency toward professionalism in welfare
work is becoming more and more pronounced. The technical side of social work is
being emphasized in a great many circles
today at the expense of the redemptive side.
As George Bernard, Shaw observes,
"There is nothing that people will not believe nowadays if it is presented as science,
and nothing that they will not disbelieve if
it is presented as religion." Hence the relationship of religion should be made plain, if
we expect to make any headway with the
social message of the Church.
Social work is becoming not only more
scientific and secular, but also more governmental. There is a growing tendency on
the part of governments to regard appointments in this department as a branch of the
Civil Service. Possibly in this particular
we ate more influenced by our American
than by our English  friends.
IN ENGLAND, tnere is still a large
place for the non-professional worker, and
the chief question asked is not regarding
the service, itself, but the spirit in which
that service is rendered.
Here lies the minister's opportunity, for
it is not only his mission to serve, as the
Master served, but in the various Churches
he will always find a body of men and
women, who seek to serve not for the reward but for the joy of service. In fact,
a very large proportion of social workers
today are Church members and the Minister
has the inspiring task of leading this army
of workers in social service. The challenge
is both human and divine, "Unless the Lord
buid the house, they labour in vain that
build it."
Again, this work of the ministry is
urgent because we need the practical to
balance the theoretical. Tl^ere is much in
the ministry which savours of the mystical.
Recently I heard a cleric describe the minister as interpreter of the mystery of life.
He must needs baptize the children, marry
the living and bury the dead. The mystery
of life and love and death is in his hands.
The prophets of the Old Testament
were men of mystery. They did not appear
before the footlights but in the clouds. Yet,
we cannot overlook the fact that the very
word, minister, suggests service. The Master declares, "I am among you as one that
serves." One of the great sayings of the
Jews was, "Learn to do by doing." That
applied not only in mental and physical
affairs but in the spiritual as well.
It is significant that persistent attempts
are being made today to divorce worship
and service. Hitler would possibly not prohibit the preaching of the gospel or administration of the Sacraments even to ministers
of the Confessional Churches.
But the moment they seek to exercise
social functions they are forcibly restrained
with the result that scarcely one of the leaders in the Church is at liberty to exercise
his ministry today. In Russia the same
process of delimitation is going forward. All
Church activities, save services of ■worship,
are strictly prohibited and even there the
Church must conform to the ruling of the
State. Russia looks toward the withering
of the Church in the same manner that she
seeks "the withering of the State." Tlie Communist ideal is for both classes and a church-
less society.
Surely these conditions constitute a
challenge to the young men of today. There
is no need for a new faith, but it must be
socially as well as personally apprehended,
if it is to prevail. For this, the ministry of
today and tomorrow must be prepared to

Dear Sir:
Thinking about certain remarks
made by some older people, I am
reminded of a story of a certain
father who always met every problem with a verse from the Bible.
One day his son, on whom he
spent a host of shekels, waa expelled from college. Hla neighbor,
sympathizing with him over this
altuaUon aald, "Well, I don't aup-
pose there la any verse from the
old Book  to fit this."
"Oh yea," replied the father
"there lo a verae from the story
of the golden Image made by
Aaron for tho people to worship.
When Moses reprimanded him because he had made the image
Aaron replied "It waan't my fault,
I put In the gold and out camo
this calf."
Grown-ups who think a great
deal of us are saying that we are
not taking our responsibilities for
the leadership of youth. We are
being accused of allbing that we
are too busy when the fact la we
just haven't the Inclination. There
are few who can deny this.
It ls a sad state of affairs to see
on the one side the petty selfishness of the "too busy" who accept
little or no responsibility for leadership, and to see, on the other
hand a handful of old faithfuls
who accept the whole burden of
service without complaint as to
the amount of work they have to
Tlio church, tho community, our
fathers and mothers havo Invested

trust if wc accept responsibility
for leadership of youth. No mat -
ter what my cynical friends may
say to the contrary, the fact remains that we are the kind of
people we are and we are In the
position we arc now because of
the sacrifices of others. We can
do our share in making these
sacrifices seem worthwhile If wo.

Friday, November 21, 1941
e IN FOUR YEARS of attending this institution, I have
found among much other collected
trivia the easiest way of killing a
member of Students'  Council.
You merely sidle up to a Councillor, hiss "Downtown publicity"
ln his ear, and wait for rigor mortis. The results are guaranteed, the
effects are horrible.
Take, as an example, the latest
actions of our 1941-42 crew. Tuesday night, when the question of
complimentary tickets for the Arts-
Aggie dance was raised, our administrators went on record as
feeling that the downtown dallies
should not be given free passes to
ANY Varsity dance.
The reason given for this change
ln policy was that Council did not
want the publicity coverage from
downtown papers.
don't like our not giving them
enough explanation. If the papers
don'5t like our not giving them
passes, then they don't have to
write up our dances. We don't
want the publicity anyway.
Havo you guessed the $64 question?
Why do we not want the publicity which In previous years we
have gone out of the way to coerce from local editors?
Apparently the answer Is all
mixed up with the war.
All of a sudden, our Councillora
have found It exceedingly embarrassing to rationalize to a critical
British Columbia publio tha rea-
aona for Unlveralty atudenta, exempt from the oompulaory four-
months military training, staging
lavish and costly balls In Vancouver night cluba.
We are aaked, by Studenta' Council, to pay $3.00 at the beginning
of every aehool year to help retire
the debt Incurred in the construction of Brock Hall, our aoclal centre. And then, we are aaked to pay
93.25 to dance at the Commodore.
And aa far aa the ignorant people of this province are concerned,
it'a all very hush-hush. Pearl casting again.
Well   maybe its right.   After
all, we don't owe the people of
thla province anything. We pay
tuition feea, darn high onea too.
And because they won't give ua
grants, we build our own buildings.
Our men march six hours a
week, our women knit countless
hours a week, we deny ourselves
once a week. We buy popples from
tho veterans, and apples from the
Kinsmen. In short, we're a very
philanthropic  outfit.
And besides, aren't we to be tha
leaders of the next generation?
During the next few days, the
Ubyssey is going to send over the
campus its better reporters, who
will conduct an inquiry of student
opinion on the question.
Personally, I have no doubt but
that a vast majority of students
will go on record as favoring the
removal of the cause—that Is, will
favor taking our social functlon_,
away from the aegis of Vancouver
ballrooms, and bringing them out to
the campua.
However, this Is a matter for the
atudent body to decide, and for
Studenta' CouncU to abide by.

Theologs Get
Summer Jobs;
— One Steady
e AROUND the latter days of
March, Intermingled with the
apprehension of coming exams,
Theological students have a further apprehension. It can best be
summed up by the query, Where
do  we   go  this summer?
In all the Colleges across Canada some 215 students are sent
out on Summer Mission Fields,
which may take them anywhere
from 20 to 1500 miles from their
homes. The period visually begins
the first Sunday in May and ends
the last Sunday in September. The
appointments are made by a central committee that meets In Toronto.
In former years many of our
students here have been sent to
Northern Sackatchewan or to tho
burned out areas In the south,
but lately concentration has been
made on the outposts of our own
This opportunity for practical
pastoral experience ls one of the
highlights of a Theolog's College
experience. People are met, problems are encountered, and one
even experiences ln some measure,
the adventures of the pioneer representative of that almost bygone day In this country. At any
rate there is enough packed Into
those five busy months to keep
discussion lively and conversation

"Arts On Defensive"
Speaker Tells College
e THE OPENING Exercises of Union College were held
in the College Chapel on the afternoon of Thursday,
November 6th. The Chapel was filled to capacity when the
Board of Governors and the Senate of the College in their
gowns and multi-colored hoods proceeded to the platform, led
by President Klinck and Principal Brown.
The   main  feature  of  the   after- ************^^^^************************
noon was the lecture on "Education, Past and Present," given by
Dr. R. C. Wallace, Principal and
Vice-Chancellor of Queen's University.
With a clear insight Into the
present conditions of education,
Dr. Wallace attempted to show
that the trend of modern learning
Is to make life very mechanistic.
"Many people to-day look at education   as   a   means   to   an   end,"
Union College
The Worth Of College
To Today's Students
e THE WORTH of any college or university is to be found,
I believe, not just in the work that is done within its
walls but in the way in which it has prepared those who
undertake the work to meet and cope with the changing
situations of life which confronts them after graduation. When
I ask, therefore, concerning the worth of the Anglican Theological College of British Columbia I turn not to the college
itself but to its graduates.
During   its   existence   more   than mmmmm^__,_____—_**,
100 men have graduated from the
college. They have gone to serve
not only in Canada but in all parts
of the world—China, Japan, India,
Ceylon, Africa, Australia and elsewhere. They have not gone to all
parts of the world just because
there are jobs there that anyone
can do but feeling by going they
can best serve God and mankind—
you cannot do the flrst without the
second. In this way the small college has Influenced thousands ot
people In all parts of the world—
Influenced them for good. It Is
easy to sit and paas judgement
upon men that have gone forth—
to criticize them as individuals—lt
will be easy for people to do that
to me when I have left—but that
ls not the important issue.
Rather let us ask if the college
through the training it has given
men has been of service to the
world. I am convinced that It has—
1 have met people from eastern
Canada to the Pacific, from the
Yukon to the southern states who
assure me of this. This, however,
is not a cause for boasting e . t >r
priding    either    ourselves c-iir
college—this  Is -what  should r> ■■•■!>
from  the  existence  of the  cc l)<-'.-!e
and if it did not, then the colles:
should   be   either   abolished   or   _>c
changed that it did result.
I have often been asked what
people should expect of the people
who graduate which, Indirectly
means, what the college should
teach to those who attend lt. I
believe that there are two things
here. First of all people have a
right to expect thot the graduates
should have a knowledge of the
teaching of Jesus—this is fundament-... Secondly, I believe they
should have a right to expect that
the graduates have some knowledge of the real issues and conflict-! of life today.
These seem to be, in my opinion,
the   two   fundamental   things   that
the college should present to those
who attend It. It Is up to the graduates, once they have attained this
knowledge to correlate the two ln
such u way that It will be of use
to men and women faced with the
problem of living and living with
other   people   as   we   all   are.
I think that the college has tried
to do this In the past, I hope lt
la doing it in the present and that
it will do It ln the future. If It
is going to do thia then, Uke all
things that are of value in this
world, It must change and develop
as life around us changes and develops.
Students Gain
Training On
Week-end Job
e JUST AS the students of the
science faculties at the University receive their practical work
in the laboratory, so the students
at the Theological Colleges receive
a great deal of theirs ln thc course
of their weekend duties. These
duties vary from taking a Bible
Class to assisting in tn. services,
and, in some cases, taking full
charge of some of the outlying
churches. The following churche3
and missions are served by the
students of the Anglican College?
St. Saviours, C. W. Bryce: St.
Mary's, Kerrisdale, L. Divon;
Church of the Ascension, H. G.

said the speaker. "They use it
simply as a way of qualifying for
a better job, rather than as education for the sake of education
itself. In many of our universities
the Faculty of Arts Is on the defensive.
"Is the solution to be found In
requiring all students to take an
Arts course before starting specialized studies? Not if this were to
mean Increasing the number of
years before a student's final
graduation,"   he   said.
The obvious solution, then, the
speaker suggested, was to provide
some training In the general
fields of the humanities and social
studies for students preparing for
various specialized professions
during their regular course. This
should be done, he contended, even if lt meant postponing training
in certain aspects of professional
specialization until the period of
practical or field experience following   graduation.
City Boys
e ALTHOUGH Theological students pursue a very heavy
course of academic work on the
campus, they also take an active
part in church work throughout
the city, especially amongst Young
People's   groups.
This year, Union College students have been going out to various Young People's societies In
the city, to speak to them and to
come into more intimate contact
with them. At most of thesa meetings the students have held panel
discussions dealing with the homo
mission work of our church and
they have also emphasized tho
Young People's Forward Movement which ls helping to revitalize
and deepen the spiritual life of
many eastern Young People's societies.

C.O.T.C. squad ln the Armories Opening sports feature.
Cops  Cop  Crucial
The boys have been taking their
rugger seriously across the water
and have lined themaelves up a
fast, experienced team Including
aeveral stars from Victoria  Reps.
The game, which Is not open to

And decidedly a feature for
long-time Thunderbird followers,
will be the return of Major A. O.

Ford Upsets
Swinton In
Link Semis
e BOB FORD, a comparatively unknown golfer
from Victoria, added to his
rapidly growing reputation
in Varsity golf circles this
week by qualifying for the
final of the U.B.C. championship with a 20-hole semifinal victory over Hans swinton.
Ford is the lad who caused a
sensation in the ranks of the
charter members of the Varsity
"Big Six" team last week by
Knocking off champion Ken McBride ln the quarter finals.
Swinton, like McBride, had a
particularly off day. Leading by
four holes at the 12th tee he proceeded to lose a golf ball on the
fairway and then knock tee shots
into the woods nn two other holes
to throw away his edge by the
time the two had reached the 18th
Tan on the.first exu-a hole, Ford
hung on by sinking a nine-foot
putt for a half and won the match
on the 20th with another putt
ot the same length for a par.
Ford now meets the winner of
the Bob Plommer-Ormy Hall semifinal match for the University
Plommer won his quarter-final
match Wednesday against Tom
Hunter 3 and 2. All square at
the turn and one down at the
lltn, (Plommer suddenly caught
fire to win the 12th, 13th and 14th
In a row to win easily. He carded
an approximate 78.
Ormy Hall qualified to meet
Plommer atfter a terrific battle
with Jim Allan In a match that
waan't settled until the last green.
Two down at the turn, Allan
squared the match on the next two
holes and was leading one-up at
the 15th. Hall won the 16th to
even the match and the game went
that way to the 18th. Allan looked like a certain winner on the
last hole when his tee shot stopped 20 feet from the cup, but Hall
pitched up within three feet with
his second approach and sank his
putt for a par while the highly
jltteded Allan took three putts to
get down in a boggy four.

2-3 Loss Puts U.B.C. In Tie
For 2nd With Woodsonias
•    TURNING IN THEIR BEST game of the year, the Varsity soccer team dropped a hard-
fought game to the Police eleven at the Upper Playing field on Wednesday landing on
the wrong end of a 3-2 score.
Unexpectedly enough, the other game at the Cambie St. pitch, where the Pro-Recs
fought it out with Woodsonias ended in a draw. So that in spite of their recent defeat,
Varsity are now tied for second place with Woodwards, while the Health and Happiness boys
hold down the cellar position.
Taking an early lead on a clean
goal by Norm Tupper, the Freshman sensation, Varsity outplayed
Police for most of the flrst half,
and the Cops were only able to
tie the score by tallying on a penalty shot, which was neatly scored
by constable Hagman.
By thu half, the Varsity eleven
were rated by the sideline experts
as the quicker and cleverer team
of the two, with their passing and
checking attack reaching a new
high for thia year.
Varsity took the offensive again
early In the second half, when a
long sideline dribble by Jimmy
Morton followed by a pass resulted
in another tally for the Gold and
Blue. The pass from Morton to
Tupper was received not ten foot
from the goal mouth, where Tupper had no difficulty in chalking
up  another  Varsity  score.
From thia point the game accelerated to a furious pace, with the
brothers Todd, Stu Roach, and
Tupper  outrunning,   and   outplay
ing the heavier Police entry. We
missed many chances here only becauae ot the excellent guardian of
tho peace In the Police goal.
Then In the dying mlnutea ot
the game when the very encouraging atudent crowd were conceding Varaity the game, a power
play by the Coppers tied up the
score on a shot by Campbell, followed not five minutes before the
final whistle by a winning tally
by Dyer.
The Varaity team rallied gamely and a 'sensational field-long
dribble by Doug. Todd almost resulted In a tying goal tor the Blue
and Gold, but this was not to be,
and the game ended at 3-2 for the
No record of this game would be
complete without mention of the
game played by the Varsity team.
Outweighed by every man on the
Police team, the diminutive students fought every Inch of the
game, outwitting the giant Cops
time an again by daring paaaea and
checks. But the superior power
of the Beatmen proved to be too
much  for  the  valiant  scholars.
Special mention should go to
fullbacks Quan Louie and Dave
Thompson, who repulsed attack

seen in these parts. So busy waa
Louie that at one time when he
lost his shin-guard he played for
ten minutes clutching It In hia

stop and put it on again.
Sparked by such brilliant playing as waa turned in by Fred Sasaki and wily Stu Todd, the Varsity team was beaten but not conquered. The soccer cup may yet

Co-Ed S
• BORN with a flair for bouncing the basketball, a group of
enthusiastic girls would gather unfailingly at out-door parka in the
summer to play this, their preferred sport.
Not all of them had the advantages of attending a school and practising In a gym together. The
basis of this team was that they
played cooperatively.
Then came the answer to the
much sought after dream of continuing together during the winter.
Someone thought these youngsters
had what it takes to play In a
league and deserved a sponsor.
This is no other than our popular
co-ed  Ruth  Wilson.
After much work on the part of
Ruth, the avid basket girls were
agog at the prospect of a sponsor
in  Western  Mutual.
With Western Mutual as their
sponsor, St. Mark's as their gym,
and Ruth as a coach, how could
these girls miss. Well, they didn't.
They were better than could be
hoped for—an example of this being their last Friday win against
e YOU probably heard that Varsity was defeated last Friday
when they played Nelson's Laundry. But we want to tell you that
these Varsity girls really play good
ball. Marg Noil had plenty of support, this yoar in tho form nf Helen
Matheson,  ^ind  Eileen  McKillop.
Nelsons have firmly clodded that
they expect to have no difficulty
in copping tho leave- honours this
year. This remains to bo seen. On
Friday Varsity clashes with I.X.L.
This ought to provide clo.se competition.

Wednesday, the Shores squad got
off to a fast etart, bagging 3 points

that the game had started. From
then until quarter time, the score

sides with Varsity aided by the

Harry Franklin, who kept the students  morale  up.
At quarter time, the scoreboard
read  10-8 for  the jewellers.
After the breather, Shores again
started the ball rolling while the
students were gathering their wits
about them. Until half time the
game see-sawed back and forth:

two baskets; Mottlshaw countered
