AT SPRING GENERAL MEETING
Councillors To Recommend
UBC Withdraw From NFCUS
But Will Press For Cheap,
Better   NFCUS   Substitute
By SANDY ROSS
Students' Council will recommend to students that UBC withdraw from the National
Federation of Canadian University Students at the Spring General meeting March  15.
If students support the Council motion, a conference of Canadian Students' Council presi*
dents will be held at UBC next Fall to determine a streamlined substitute for NFCUS.
WINNER of this year's Totem Queen contest is Miss Sally
Grimmett, third year Arts student, who was crowned
Thursday by Mr. Ron Bray, president of AMS at the
Women's Undergraduate Society Spring Fashion Show.
Sally was chosen from ten candidates whose pictures now
decorate the Brock Totem office.
Charge   Against
ASUS   Pending
AMS President Ron Bray has asked the Students' Investigations Committee to lay a charge of disrupting the distribution
ol' The Ubyssey against the Arts and Sciences Undergraduate
Society, and against several individual ASUS members.
Bray's request came after several Artsmen allegedly confiscated 5000 Engineers Edition
Ubysseys   at   10:30   a.m.   Febru
ary 21.
Bray said the papers were abducted by  ASUS  members and
formal request for action to the
Investigation  Committee.
Akesode is pro-tem President
of the Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Society.
Akesode stoutly denied at first
taken to "the Properties building   that ASUS had anything to do
behind the Armoury while the
Engineers were having their
EUS Pep Meet in the Auditorium.
The paper-, were not returned
to circulation until about one
p.m.
Named by Bray as responsible
for the incident arc: Gerry Gilbert and R. G. Cross, both in
Arts. Players' Club President
John Maynard was also "aware
of where the Ubysseys were
hidden,"  Bray  said.
Bray said two Artsmen, Miles
Frechette and John Van Beu-
kenhought, phoned to confess
to their part in the confiscation.
"It is also my belief that Mr.
Alade Akesode was present during the departure of the said
Ubysseys,"   Bray   stated   in   his
with the incident, protested to
Bray that the charge against
ASUS was unjustified.
"When I first heard about the
plan,   three   minutes   before   it
happened,  I   felt they shouldn't
; do it.  I tried to discourage it,"
I Akesode   said.
"I can't do anything about in-
■ dividuals," he said,
i Bray commented on Akesode's
; statement disclaiming ASUS res-
! ponsibility for the confiscations:
J "The principle of collective res-
I ponsibility has been established
| by student court," he said. "Thus
• when Artsmen commit a mis-
' demeanour, ASUS should be held
I responsible." The same goes for
! individual members of the EUS."

No    Immediate    Reduction
Council's decision came in the form of a 7-3 vote that approved the findings of the majority report of the NFCUS Investigation Committee. The majority report recommending
withdrawal, with a rider attached recommending the formation
of a PSPA-type national students' organization.
The PSPA-type conference at UBC would be financed
by the 50 cents per capita levy which UBC students now
pay to support NFCUS. This means there would be no immediate reduction ol AMS fees even if students withdrew from
the national organization.
The exact nature of the substitute national body would be
determined by the delegates to the UBC convention, but
Councillors, who would sponsor the parley, favor a national
body modelled on the Pacific Students' Presidents Association.
Thinner'    National    Organization
The majority report felt that the objects and projects of
NFCUS, although worthy, could be accomplished just as ef-
; fectively and more economically by a "thinner" national or-
ganization.
If the report's plan were adopted at the General Meeting,
j the work which NFCUS now carries on, such as sponsoring
| art contests and exchange scholarships, would be delegated
: to various committees at Canadian universities.
i There would be no permanent national office, such as
' NFCUS now maintains, and administration costs, which now
i take up over half of the NFCUS budget, would be lowered
considerably.
Toronto    On    Way    Out
Informed observers say if UBC withdrew from NFCUS,
it might well doom the whole organization. McGill, Montreal,
I Acadia and Manitoba, all large universities, have withdrawn
from NFCUS, and sources say the withdrawal of a fifth large
university would be a loss NFCUS could not sustain. University of Toronto, another vital link in the NFCUS chain, Ls also
reported to be close to withdrawal.
The NFCUS Investigation committee was created last Fall
by Students' Council alter AMS President Ron Bray and
Vice-President   Ron   Longstaffe   returned   from   the   NFCUS
[National Convention in Edmonton. Bray and Longstaffe were
dissatisfied with the organization, and the "petty bickering"
displayed at  the convention.
The committee ''as formed to investigate the basic value
of the NFCUS organization, and the advisability of withdrawal.
, Chaired by Longstaffe, members of the committee were: MAA
President Bob Hutchinson; NFCUS Committee Chairman Mart-
Bell; NFCUS Committee member Brian Smith; former NFCUS
External Affairs Committee Chairman Marcel LeBlanc; AMS
President Ron Bray; Ubyssey representative Val Haig-Brown
, AMS Second Member Mike Jeffery; and Jacques Barbeau.

Minority    Report    Rejected
At Monday Council meeting, in addition to the committee's
majority report,  a  minority  report  and  an  abstention  report
were also presented, but were rejected in favor ol the majority
'' report.
The   minority   report   was   presented   by   Marc   Bell   and

Childish Act
Student Council's punitive action against the Engineering
.Undergraduate Society was the act of a petulant child. Last
■week Council fined the EUS five dollars for pasting stickers
on the campus. Undeterred the Engineers proceeded to paint
red Lady Godiva's, advertising their annual ball.
Another five dollar fine was imposed and Councillor Bob
McLean gave the Engineers until today to remove the stickers.
But at last Monday night's Council meeting, Council, because
the EUS was involved, became unreasonable and gave them
until last Wednesday to remove the red ladies.
With the EUS Ball being held this week the notice was
too short for the stickers to be removed. As a result Council
called in Buildings and Grounds to remove the Godivas at a
cost of around $100. The bill will be charged to the EUS budget
■which will be suspended until it is paid.
By being unreasonable Council has created unneeded
•fenimosty arid wasted $100. One hundred dollars is a lot cf
money to satisfy the petulance of a few Councillors.
Holier-Than-Thou
Premier Bennett's Bible-toting, holier-than-thou Social
Crediters apparently intend to defend Vancouverites from
their own wanton desires. They have given no indication that
they will pass legislation to allow Sunday sports and thereby
comply with the wishes of the voters of this city. The people
of Vancouver indicate, albeit by a small majority, that they
want Sunday sports.
Why won't the Socreds comply wiih their wishes? Perhaps
it is because Social Credit is the party of the hallelujah-shouters,
the Bible-packers, the defenders of the "Christian way of
life" and what have you. It wouldn't do for the Socreds to
anger the churches and the rural vote by bowing to democracy
and allowing Sunday sports in Vancouver.
No government has the right to ignore the wishes of the
'governed unless it is a dictatorship.

Surplus
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I understand that the Alma
Mater Society is faced with a
surplus of $6000 for the present budget year. Instead of
thinking up various ways of
spending the money in question
—e.g. by free A.M.S. cards,
free student handbooks, etc.—
which would benefit a lot of
persons a little, would it not
be a better idea to spend the
money in a way to benefit one
person a great deal and everyone a little.
The person whom I feel could
benefit from the "proper" or
"suggested" 'way of spending
part tt theWrplus mdney (being that it evidently has to be
spent!) is one by the name of
Autherine Lucy. Tne infatuated
zealots who have caused the
scandalous act at the University Of Alabama h&ve put the
problem of racial prejudice in
the foreground once again. It
is up to us to show these narrow-minded monomaniacs that
differences of race, creed and
colour do not classify or disqualify any individual. This is
a wonderful opportunity to
show UBC's stand On racial
problems. I suggest that an
amount of money bet set aside
to aid Miss Lucy to further
studying at the University of
British Columbia Where she
heed not live in fear of facial
intolerance.
Yours sincerely,
"R.D.T."

GIVE   CHRISTIANITY
A   FAIR   TRIAL
The Ubyssey continues its discussion of religious revival on the campus with an
article by three third year Arts students in reply to Albert Henke's two articles on ''Back
to Religion—A Dangerous Illusion." More replies will be printed in Tuesday's paper—Ed.
In two recent articles in The Ubyssey Mr. Albert Henke expressed his views on the
current religious "revival" in universities. In sum he said that "orthodox religion is not
adequately grappling with the truly vital problems of today" and that it should therefore
be discarded as if it is of no real value to the human race.
Let us begin by pointing out
that all men .regardless of the
generation in which they live,
are faced with certain timeless problems. Question such as
"Where do I come from?''
"Where am I going?" "How
do I get there?" present themselves to every thinking individual, and he cannot escape
from them. History shows that
the majority of men, in considering these questions, have
come to the conclusion that
man has a supernatural origin
and a supernatural end and
must therefore govern himself
accordingly.
It is in fulfilling the needs
thus made evident that religion
has its essential function. That
is why religion is not needless
or useless, but rather absolutely
vital. Indeed, man's physical
and environmental conditions
might change completely; he
might forget all his previously
acquired knowledge and start
out again, in completely different fields; but one factor which
would remain constant, precisely because it is imbedded
in his very nature, is his need
for religion.
Apart from these fundamental ideas, Mr. Henke has stated
that religion has no answers
to the vital problems of today.
But we know that it does provide answers to the practical
and vital problems of each
generation. For example let us
take into consideration some
of the pressing issues of our
present day.
First of all, the problems of
the H-Bomb and re-armament
have been brought up. Religion does provide answers to
these question. Pope Pius XII,
in his special 1955 Christmas
message warns us of the danger
of experimentation with nuclear explosions. He reminds us
that:
"Too many explosives would
in time cause an increased density of of radioactive products
in the aimospher. whose diffusion depends on elements not
under man's control; thus
would be generated conditions
very dangerous for many living
beings."
Pope Pius goes on to tell us
that it would take three steps
in order to be assured of safety:
1. "Renunciation of experimentation with atomic weapons."
2. "Renunciation of the use
of atomic weapons."
3. "A general control of armaments."
He endorses several methods
by which these three points
could be carried out. And yet
religion is criticized for its
lack of regard for man's body,
and the material aspects of
life.
Religion is criticized for its
over-interest in man's soul, and
its lack of interest in mail's
body. Granted —religion is
above all, interested in the
sdul. But is thing wrong? The
mefe fact that religion is interested in the soul, tells us
that she must also We Interested
in the body. The body and soul
are so intimately interwoven,
that it is impossible to be interested in one and not in the
other. As St. Thomas Aquinas
puts it,
"A minimum of well being
is necessary to saintliness."
Furthermore religion is interested in the body because,
being one of God's creations,
it is not intrinsically evil. The
only evil present in man's body
is the evil he introduces into
it by his own free will. Since
there is therefore a possibility
of the body either being used
for a good or bad purpose, Religion is interested in seeing
that this body be used to a
good purpose.
It is in this spirit that recent
Popes have stressed the need
for social re-adjusthients. Here
are a few of the many examples. In regard to labor-
managements relationships, the
church teaches that
"A worker is bound in jus-
lice to work diligently and
fairly in return for a decent
wage."
In his encyclical, Rerum No-
varum, Pope Leo XIII wrote
on social justice. He tells us
that
"It is not right, as we have
said, for either the eitisen or
the family to be absorbed by
the state; it is proper that the
individual and the family
should be permitted, to retain
their freedom of action, so far
as tihs is possible without jea-
pordizing the common good,
and without injuring anyone."
On May 20, 1948, Pope Pius
XII gave a discourse on pro-
pery. He demonsrated that
"The recognition of this right
(of owning private property)
harmonizes with the dignity of
the human personality, with
the recognition of inviolable
right sand duties inseparably
inherent in the free personality
received from  God."
As a final example to illustrate our point, we shall quote
Pope Pius XI; discussing Capitalism he said that such a
system (the wage system)
"Is not lo be condemned. It
is not of its own nature vicious."
But it is a grave abuse when
Capital uses its power in such
a way that it scorns
"The human dignity of the
workers, the social character of
economic activity, and social
justice itself, and the common
good."
The religion that sponsors
the above statements, and many
ohters has been termed overbearingly authoritarian, prejudiced, and purely soul-minded.
Read more the many like
statements written by the
church. You will find how false
it is to state that she is not
interested in man's bodily welfare.
Lastly, we have a very vital
problem facing us; that of over
population. There are those who
suggest birth control as a probable solution. The church opposes this particular solution
on    certain    moral    grounds
which she believe sinviolable,
and on which she cannot compromise.
But just because she is
against birth control, does not
mean that she is indifferent to
this problem of overpopulation. On the contrary, the
church has always shown an
interest in the material needs
of man, as was pointed out
above, and is demonstrated by
her numerous hospitals, schools
and welfare agencies spread
throughout the world.
It is often pointed out that
although Christianity has been
with us for close to 2000 years,
mankind still finds itself in a
truly sbrry condition. Standards of individual and international morality are in many
ways at their lowest ebb. This,
it is maintained is probf that
Christianity has failed in its
task, and should therefore be
discarded.
On the level of individual
behavior this misconception
springs generally from the
failure to distinguish between
Christianity as an ideal or standard, and Christianity as it is
practised in particular cases.
Christians are h'urnan beings
just like everybody else. They
have the same human nature
and are subject to the same
human weaknesses as everybody else. Christianity certainly has Its sinners as well
as its saints. However, if particular Christians happen to be
sinners it is not because their
Christianity has failed them,
but rather because they have
failed Christianity, i.e. they
have not put their Christian
principles into practices .
Man has free will, arid it it
up to him to decide whether he
will act as he knows he should
or whether he will follow the
line of least resistance. Should
all the professed Christians in
the world be evil men, it would
still not prove that Christianity
itself was at fault, but only that
no where was there anyone
with the moral courage to put
his Christian principles into
practise.
The same is even truer with
regards to national and international problems. Religious
leaders have repeatedly stressed the need for a Christian outlook on the problems which
face mankind. But far from being put into practise, the
Christian solution is scoffed at,
and discarded as useless and too
idealistic. The leaders of most
of our so-called Christian countries pay lip-service only to
religious ideals, and use them
as a type of actor's mask, while
in reality they are governed
by motives as selfish and as
materialistic as those of any
"immoral"  communist  power.
In summary, may we be justified in once more using G. K.
Chesterton's cliche.
"Chrfstfaniry has riot failed}
It has hot been tried."

Why would a top-level government economist, earning
$15,000 a year, take a $5000
pay cut to teach at UBC?
That's the riddle connected
with the appointment of John
J. Deutsch as new head of
UBC's Department of Economics. The answer lies with
the man himself.
TOP IN  CANADA
Mr. Detusch, who will take
over the Department in July,
probably knows more about
government finance than any
man in Canada.
Deutsch was Secretary of
the Treasury Board before ac-

which must be counter-signed by
three people who can testify
to the applicant's record, are

and a gold pin, will be given
out at the Spring Meeting on
March 15.
Last year awards were given

cepting the UBC post. The
Board, a little-khown Cabinet
Committee, is responsible for
checking a 11. Government
spending. As Secretary,
Deutsch wielded enormous
power and shared immense responsibility. In a quiet way,
he was one of the most important men in Ottawa.
WHY UBC?
Why did he decide to come
to UBC?
First of all, Deutsch had
risen about as high as he
could go in Ottawa. The Department of Finance has few
higher civil service posts to
offer.
Secondly, Deutsch is fond
of B. C. "I like the dynamic
atmosphere," he has been
quoted as saying.
Another factor is Deutsch's
close friendship with UBC
president Dr. Norman A. M.
McKenzie.
IDEALIST
But the most important of
all, Deutsch's friends say, is
the fact that the 44-year-old
economist is an idealist. He
feels he can make a more
direct contribution to Canada
at  UBC   than   at   Ottawa.

AMS  Needs
Forty  Beds
An urgent appeal has been
issued for billets to accomodate
delegates to the High School
conference next month.
The visitors will arrive on
Thursday, March 1, and will
require sleeping accomodation
on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night with a breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning. Conference activities will
take guests off their host's hands
during the d?y.
The billeting committee still
needs accomodation for forty
students. If you have an empty
bed, an unused couch or a vacant closet to spare please phone
John Hards at KE. 4971-M or
leave your name at the AMS office.
"I want a chance to look at
things from the outside, to
sort out my thoughts and get
them down on paper," he said.
Before holding the Treasury
Board post, Mr. Deutsch was
an assistant to the under-sec-
retary for External Affairs
during the war. He was also
economic advisor to the Winnipeg Free Press in 1945. Besides being Secretary to the
Treasury Board, Deutsch was
assistant to the Deputy Minister of Finance in Ottawa.
QUEENS GRADUATE
Deutsch graduated from
Queens University in 1935
with a B.Comm. degree, and
took post graduate work the
following year. Deutsch has
also been on the economics
staff of the Bank of Canada,
and has acted as an economic
advisor to the Rowell-Sirois
commission.
USC Okays
Probe Plan
Of Council
Plans of the Arts Undergraduate Society to form a committee
to investigate student government on the campus was approved by Undergraduate Societies Committee and Students'
Council on Monday.
The purpose of the committee
is to determine the effectiveness
of student government and see
if it can be improved.
The committee members are:
Phil Greenberg and Tom Wilson, Arts; Ken Turnbull, Frosh;
Mike Meagher, Forestry; and
Marion Smith, Nursing.
Student Councillors were not
all in favour of the plan, which
USC chairman Dave Hemphill
described as "a worthy project,
which will probably do a great
deal of good."
Vice-president Ron Longstaffe,
objecting to the plan, said, "Why
can't they take our word for it."

Pool   Seat   Exchange
Contemplated By AMS
UBC may exchange the 3000 permanent seats at Empire
pool for 500 portable seats that could be used either at the
pool, or as additional seating inside War Memorial gymnasium.
Students' Council will recommend to UBC president Dr. N. A.
M. McKenzie that the existing
seats be sold, and that portable,
tubular-style seats be substituted.
MOUNTIES AFTER SEATS
The decision came after officials of Vancouver Mounties
baseball team offered to buy a
block of seats from Howie Mc-
Phee stadium, which would be
used next season in Capilano
Stadium.
Students' Council declined the
offer, but said they are willing
to sell the existing pool seats
instead.
Asking   price  is   $10,000  for
3000 seats.
PORTABLE SEATS
If Mountie officials accepted
the offer, UBC would buy 500
of the portable seats with the
proceeds of  the  sale.
Men's Athletic Association officials doubt that Empire Pool
will ever again be the site of
a major spectator event. Thus,
fewer pool seats, that could also
provide needed seating space inside the gymnasium, would be
a more economical arrangement.
The University Administration
will make the offer to the Mounties   next   month.
Then there was  the  hillbilly
who   said   that   he   didn't   use
toothpaste because none of his
teeth were loose.

Tarred Trophy To
Take Treatment
AMS treasurer Al Thackray has a unique problem on his
hands: how to get 35 pounds of tar and ore out of a Forestry
trophy cup.

' The trophy concerened is the
Forestry Debating Cup, donated
by the Administration years ago.
Present holder of the cup is the
Forestry Club.
Recently, the cup was stolen,
Thackray says, by members of
the rival Dawson Club, metallurgical   enthusiasts.
When returned, the cup was
filled with about 35 pounds of
a weird mixture of tar, iron
pyrites and other unidentified
material. I
No-one knows how to get it
out.
Dawson Club officials offered
to try to remove the rock-hard
mess, but failed. A downtown
jewellery firm was also stumped.
They said the only way to remove the mess was with an air
hammer. Cost: $35.
Thackray said he will take
the cup to a diamond-drilling
firm, or buy a new cup. j
Price will be shared by the
Dawson Club and the Forestry
Club, he said, but officials of
both clubs are unwilling to pay.

good sense of comedy was very
amusing as the frivolous Tonio,
the comic hero. But he often
tended to go overboard in his
impersonation, which somehow
can be forgiven in musical-
comedy.
Tonio's re-discovered wife
Vittoria, who believes him to
have drowned five years before,
was colorfully portrayed by the
vivacious Joan Mercer who
lived and loved every moment
of  her  part.
The role of the naive and pompous General Malona whose
position depends upon his capture of Baldasarre, was well
handled by Bob Clarke, who
also showed good comic timing
and consistency of character.
However, like John Northey as
the love foresakcn Beppo who
somehow disappeared after the
second act, his singing was
lively  but   often   inaudible.
Congratulations are due to musical director Harry Pryce,
choreographer Grace McDonald
and dramatics director James
Johnson for excellent direction
in all three fields. The inobvious
but effective blending of music,
dance and acting contributed
much to the general freshness
and vitality of the production.

Council officials said today.
DEADLINE IGNORED
At Monday night's meeting
Council set a Wednesday noon
deadline for removal of all
publicity stickers and painted
stencils from campus buildings, in addition to imposing
the five dollar fine provided
for in the AMS constitution.
EUS officials ignored the
ultimatum, and will be charged for the material's removal
by a clean-up man from the
Buildings and Grounds Department.
GODIVA O-RAYED
The budget suspension imposed by Council will not
prevent the EUS from paying
the expense? of the annual
Engineer's cabaret, the Godiva
Gallop. Nor will the budget
suspension include the money
necessary to pay the bill for
removal of the illegal publicity
material.
But all EUS activities scheduled for between now and the
end of the school term will be
curtailed by the budget freeze.
For instance, EUS may not
be able to send a delegate to
the Society of Profesional Engineers convention this year,
AMS Treasurer Geoff Conway
said.
AMS President Ron Bray
said the EUS action in ignoring the ultimatum showed
"flagrant disreepect for the
student administration."

Panty-Raids   Perturb
Girls   At   Wesbrook
Pandemonium broke out at one of the girls' dorms Tuesday at 10 p.m. when Ann Wesbrook Hall gathered force to

The Engineers of Fort Camp
mobilized quickly and within
a few minutes a few hundred
students were watching the excitement.
Girls found themselves being
dragged outside and doused with
fire-extinguishers. They retaliated by dumping flour on the
red-jackets from upstairs windows. Some boys tried to escape
a shower-wetting by running out
the fire-exits and letting off the
burglar alarm.
A brave attempt was made by
a few of the dorm-inmates to
capture a trophy for Wesbrook.
They did not succeed in taking
the jacket off the engineer-victim.

Climax occurred when the
Don was pulled outside and
drenched with the hose. By now,
most of the girls were soaking
wet; boys were covered with
flour   and   water.

"Council is kow-towing to Engineers," sneered Akesode.
"Bray is panting with terror at
the mere hint of EUS violence.''
"Akesode is chicken," Bray
replied.
Ten minutes after the heated
exchange, Akesode revealed to a
reporter that he had received
further information on the incident, and claimed full ASUS responsibility for the affair.
"ASUS did it to combat campus apathy," Akesode claimed,
"and to show the campus that
an Artsman can outwit an Engineer anytime."
Investigations Committee officials have not yet stated whether they will concur with Bray's
request and lay charges in connection with the incident.

The Fourth Division Mainland UBC Chiefs are scheduled
to meet P.M.B.A. on campus Sunday at 2 p.m. The Chiefs have
not been too impressive this
season but in this matter the
two teams are evenly matched
and on Sunday they should provide some interesting fare.
So far this season the Chiefs
have lacked consistent scoring
punch. They have relied mostly
on the overworked defence led
by Bill Smith and goalie John

Come Forth
UBC's newly founded sailing
team met with limited success
on its trip to Seattle to compete
against the University of Washington, Seattle Univ., C.P.S.,
and Reid College. Bruce Taylor
and Keith Plant skippered the
UBC boats into fourth position
by finishing well up on the
final day of racing.
The boys, not acquainted with
the Seattle boats, started slowly. After the first series they
were in fourth place ahead o£
Reid  College.
In the final series UBC came
alive and was a serious threat.
Taylor and Dave Burton came
up with two seconds and a third.
Plant and Peter McBean had a
fifth, seventh and eighth after
sailing good delaying races.
UBC's big moment came in the
final race of the regatta when
Taylor and Burton were defeated by inches. The other
crew had successfully covered
the rest of the fleet allowing
Taylor to slip through.
The final results showed UBC
solidly entrenched in fourth
place with 129 points to Univ.
of Wash, winning total of 62ai.
Seattle Univ. and C.P.S. were
second and third with 93 and
104 respectively.
In the individual results,
UBC's Bruce Taylor ended up
in fourth place with 49 points,

Birds vs. C-Fun
Saturday at UBC
By MIKE GLASPIE
With  their Olympic hopes riding  in  the  balance,  UBC
Thunderbirds meet Alberni and Seafuns in the second of the
three weekends of B. C. championship basketball.
Coach    Pomfret's    collegians^
travel to the island tonight for
a game at the home of the Canadian champion Alberni Athletics. Meanwhile Eilers and Sea-
funs will play at King Edward
gym in the other playoff contest, after UBC Braves and
YMCA meet in the preliminary
at  6:45  p.m.
Saturday evening, the Birds
host Seafuns at 8:30 p.m. in the
first game of the B. C. series
to be played at the UBC War
Memorial gym. Eilers are at
Alberni to complete the weekend schedule.
Thirty-five students will accompany the Birds to Alberni
tonight to help the team in its
effort to break the Athletics'
heme court mastery. The A's
have lost only one game on their
home floor to Canadian opposition all season, that to Seafuns
last Friday.
Both Alberni and UBC have
a one win, one loss record in the
six game round robin play-offs.
The Birds' defeat also came at
the hands of Seafuns, and both
squads hold wins over Eilers.
Alberni will be at full strength
with the exception of Elmer
Speidel. The A's playing coach
is an American citizen and ineligible to play in the championships, although he can still serve
in a coaching capacity.
'FUNS   YET  TO  LOSE
Seafuns are the only undefeated team in the playoffs and
at UBC Saturday will face a
team that is out to revenge its
52-50 upset last Saturday. Lanky
Bob Pickell is the big gun for
'Funs with the improving , Bob
Burtwell always a heavy scor
ing threat.
In play previous to the B. C.
tourney,   Birds   have   split   two
games with Lance Hudson's
radio squad, winning in the Totem Tournament at UBC in November but dropping an exhibition game to Seafuns during
the Christmas holidays.
Jack Pomfret has been particularly pleased with the play
of some of Ihe lesser stars on
his squad and rests much of
his hope for a double win on
them.
In their final Evergreen Conference tilt of the season last
Monday, a skeleton Bird team
of seven players gave the highly-
touted second place Central
Washington Wildcats the scare
of their lives before bowing in
the final two seconds of the
game,  52-50.
SEVEN   PLAYERS
The team was composed of
Mike Fraser, Jack Henwood,
Gordie Gimple, Frank Tarling,
Jim Pollock, Lyall Levy, and
Ted Saunders. Every player
scored at least four points and
none more than 12 in a brilliant
exhibition of control basketball
in which UBC scored 54 per cent
of its shots from the floor.
Jack Pomfret, very pleased
with the squad's gutty performance, reports that the Thunderbirds held a 50-46 lead with
three minutes to play and even
with a 50-50 tie were at the foul
line with seven seconds to play.
Only a desparation basket in
the final seconds beat the Birds,
who held star center Bill Coordes
in check throughout the game.
The loss gave UBC a record of
seven wins against 11 defeats
in the Evergreen Conference
which is the best showing in
history and eclipses the old record  of two victories.
Braves Can Surprise
In  Final  To-night
UBC's basketball Braves can
pull one of the biggest upsets
of the season to-night when they
take on league champion
Y.M.C.A. in the fourth game
of the best of five Junior Men's
Mainland finals in a preliminary
to the Eiler C-Fun B.C. Olympic
clash at King Ed Gym. Game
times are 6.45 and 8:30.
LEAD
Braves, coached by "Curly"
Mullins, took a two to one game
lead in the finals last Wednesday night when Lance Stephens
calmly stepped to the free shot
line and sank both shots with
only four seconds left to make
the score 54-52. This was the second loss suffered by the "Y"
squad who went through the
regular schedule undefeated.
The game was strictly a defensive show, while the ball control was very ragged compared
to the Monday night contest.
The Y.M.C.A. quintet outshot
the Braves almost two to one,
but with poor shooting managed
to just keep up to the collegians.
lead early in the game but by
half time, "Y" had chopped the
margin to three points and at
three quarter time, had a 37-36
lead. It seemed as if the Braves
were going to follow the same
pattern of other contests with
"Y" when UBC grabbed an
early lead and then fell down
under the full court pressure as
Hudson's quintet took the lead.
However, with only sixteen
seconds left, John McNee took
a jump shot and missed but Dave
Horton was there to make the
tip In and tie the score 46-46
to force the contest into over-
lime.
OVERTIME
The five minute overtime period saw John McNee and Lance
Stephens score two and four
points respectively while "Y'"s
Ken Oddy, Lome Holyoak and
Charlie O'Fallon matched the
count with two points each.
The game looked like it was in
