 Council Prepares For Defeat
Game On
• TUESDAY 27, 1942, will again
mark the epic battle, the basketball masterpiece of the year, the
ne plus ultra In the sporting world,
need we say it, the Pub-Council
game, In the gym at 12:30.
Line-ups for both teams are as
yet unannounced but the tentative
Council team will consist of Mack
Buck, Council bombshell, and several other Campus rowdies while
the Ubyssey will be represented
by a staunch, clean-playing force
of swift, smooth fighting men
forming a panzer detachment calculated to exterminate the puny
opposition of a force totally lacking in moral backing.

Parliament On
• OTTAWA—Jan. — The
man of the hour in the
Sports World this week is
Maj. Arthur A. Burridge, 50-
year-old director of Athletics
at Hamilton's McMaster University.
Fresh from a two-day conference at Detroit late In December
at which 2,700 delegates representing Military and Educational authorities placed themselves on record in favor of extending and
strengthening the United States
Sport program as a war contribution, the balding, broad-shouldered athletic Chief needed only a
few words to get his message
Almost as soon as he had finished
the delegates endorsed his suggestion that the Eastern Union take
the lead for all sport bodies In the
Dominion by naming a five-man
committee to interview defence
minister Ralston. Purpose: to find
out Just what the government
thinks about sport in wartime.
If apcrta-minded students in Canadian universities hoped this week
for restoration of some of their
normal athletic privileges, Burridge and the other four gentlemen on the committee must have
been largely responsible.
This department has run into
nothing but grief in its attempts
to obtain official reactions on the
proposal by the Medical Society
of the University of Toronto that
medical students in the last three
years of their courses be permitted to enlist In medical vmitM of
the three fighting services.
Calls to the national defence department and the national war
aervices department produced only
the comment that the proposition
is being studied by the government... An Interview with, Brig. R.
M. Coralline, chief of the defence
department's Medical Services,
brought the rejoinder: "There's
absolutely nothing I can say for
publication on this thing now."
From the official silence it would
be safe to surmise the boys in
Meds have stirred up a lot of
thought. A hopeful sign la that
every government spokesman seems
to have heard all about It.
Dr. J. H. Cody, president of the
University of Toronto, preached
before the King and Queen in the
private chapel of Buckingham Palace, Aug. 6, 1922. He spoke twice
in Westminister Abbey.
Hon. Pierre Joseph Arthur Car-
din, minister of Transport and Public Works and a graduate of Quebec's Laval University, is considered one of the nattiest dressers on
Parliament Hill. Hon Clarence Decatur Howe, gift of Waltham, Mass.,
to Canada's House of Commons,
was 56 last Wednesday. The munitions minister took his engineering
degree at the Massachusetts Institute  of  Technology.
Dr. F. Cyril James, principal and
vice-chancellor of McGill University, may be on his way now to
Britain to study post-war problems
as a member of the seven-man advisory committee on Reconstruction which advises the Pensions
and National Health Department
on those matters.
As a paper saving device students at the University of Western
Ontario will write mid-term tests
on both sides of leaves in examination books. Writing on one
side of the page was problem
enough in our school days.

Release Records
To All Students
•   COMMENCING January 27, the Carnegie record collection will be available for loans to students, it was
announced Wednesday by Dr. K. Lamb.
Operated on the principles of the ordinary book loans,
records may be borrowed by students who comply with the
regulations adopted by library officials.
Can - Can
The announcement of a loan
service came as a surprise to Lister Sinclair, President of the Mus-
ical Appreciation Society. His
reaction was whole heartedly for
tho service and he added with a
characteristic touch of humour,
"At least they can only take out
good music; or Icelandic songs."
Records available for loan will
be found Used In the main record
catalogue under the head, "Titles
Loan List." In this respect It
It should be noted that not all
records are available for loan outside the University, exceptions being those difficult or Impossible
to replace such as French or German recordings.
Requests for records should be
made out on library call slips and
handed In to room B. Alternative
titles should be submitted In the
event of a previous request for the
same record; these should be num-
brcd In order of preference.
An Important feature of the loan
service is that It is experimental
and Its continuation will be dependent upon the care taken with
records and if damage or abuse
are too great the service will not
be continued.
Another attractive feature will
be a sharpener for fibre needles
available for students' use In room
Following is a list of regulations.
1. A registration fee of fl will
be required of all borrowers, to

Caf Food
Still Big
• INCREASING dlssetlsfactlon
with food conditions in the Cat
has resulted in action by Irate
members of the student body. A
petition has been passed around
and more than 60C signatures have
already been obtained on the following: "We, the undersigned, desire to go on record as being extremely dissatisfied with the quality of food served for the price
paid In the Cof. We recommend
that student council take some definite action in remedying this
Student Council has expressed
its intention to lay this matter before the Faculty Council on student affairs at its next meeting.

• TOT-TENDERS — Buttercup Enterprises (Male) Incorporated is really rolling. After a few assignments a-
round home, President Tom McLaughlin of the baby-tenders
stated that there has been a sudden demand for membership
after the successful handling of the children of Mr. and Mrs.
F. A. Forward, 1629 Allison Ave. To cope with this influx
Ray Wilson has been taken into the corporation as secretary.
Diminutive George Bishop is the business manager.
Although the organization is rapidly growing, Ray
Wilson states that the membership must stay exclusively
male. "Two girls have tryed to get in but they were told
no females by request", he said. All three members are
quite emphatic in their belief that they are going ahead as a
result of more efficiency than the gals.

CHORINES—In a vigorous manner, debunking the glamour angle, will the above pictured campus sorority girls kick and can-can at tonight's Red Cross Ball. Aristocracy, and
swank forgotten, Bernice Booth, Florence Mercer, Connie Dierssen, Dorothy Hebb and Annabel Sandison, five of the chosen thirteen chorines, put finishing touches to their costumes
before "going on". Rumour has it that their garters (pre-priority made) will be raffled off,
as part of the government's rubber conservation scheme.

Free Films
Shown At
UBC To<nite
• THE DEPARTMENT of university extension announces a
public showing of educational
films in the University Auditorium tonight at 8:15 p.m. There
wll be no admission charge.
Of great interest will be the film
on Free France, depicting the activities of the Free French at Dunkirk, Dakar, Palestine, Syria and
Great Britain.
Others will include a natural
colour film on Hawaii, a film on
the gallant duties of the sheepdog,
a film depicting the nightly
Journey of the postal train from
London to Aberdeen, and "Invitation to the Dance," showing the
grace and poise acquired through
smartest ever" was the
unanimous verdict for the
Red Cross Ball Pep Meet
that was exploded in front
of a packed Auditorium yesterday noon.
From the time the curtain row
to disclose the locale as a troop
entertainment centre "Somewhere
in (Censored)" to the closing moment when the audience stood to
sing "There'll Always Be An England", surprise followed joke followed retort.
Undoubted feature of the presentation was THE Chorus, who
pranced and ruffled across the
stage in their "Latin Quarter"
number to the obvious delight of
male undergrade.
The show was zipped off in a
setting featuring George Reifel'a
Orchestra, while two tables of
freshmen sipped hard spirits with
hostess Bunny Aim.
M.C. Dorwln Baird returned to
his Alma Mater to match wits with
the undergrad audience and found
their quips In top form.
Johnny Farina, in an unusual role
of a drunken waiter, moralized
on the "Curse of Drink."
Ormy Hall presented the skit
"How To Sell A Raffle Ticket",
which featured Jimmy Allen as
Maury Van Vliet in a half-time
hell-night lecture. Blanket Cover-
ed players suddenly turned Into
intrlgulngly garbed co-eds who
then toured the audience selling
raffle tickets.
Following Doreen Ryan's modelling of the first prise coat and cap
squirrel ..ensemble, ..hundreds .of
raffle tickets were sold.
Then came an explosion, when
instead of the eagerly awaited reappearance of THE Chorus, a
Sciencemen hip line consisting of
Miss Take, Miss Hap, Miss Conception, Miss Conduct, Miss Demeanour, and Miss Carriage slithered before the footlights.
All these surprises kept the audience exasperated. Examples run
from Tom Cantell, who after several attempts shot himself and a
crying child, to the bewildered Aggie who chirped "Keep It Clean"
throughout the show.
It all goes to show that you can't
keep Hellzapoppln' confined to any
one place.
Gifts Enhance
Social Room Of
Dean Mawdsley
• DEAN Dorothy Mawdsley'*
social room In the Brock has
been made more gracious by the
addition of various gifts.
The tea table is now graced with
a lace cloth which was presented
by Mrs. Ernest Woodward. To easa
the strain of the tea hour for the
men, Mrs. L. S. Klinck donated
a nest of walnut tables.
Tea is served in cups which
were given to Dr. Mawdsley by
her friends in the hope that she
would put them Into service in
her room in the Brock.
Carson Only Entry For President As
Nominations Strike All-Time Low
• INTEREST in campus
politics has hit an all-
time low. With less than a
week remaining before nominations for President of the
Alma Mater Society close,
only one name, that of John
Carson, chairman of the
Special Events Committee,
has been confirmed as a candidate for the chief executive
position. Mack Buck, present Junior Member on Council, has definitely denied reports that he would contest
the election for the presidency.
This state of affairs, due, we
have no doubt, to the very unsettled conditions resulting from the
war. is indeed in marked contrast
to tho keen rivalry which resulted
last  year when six  men  ran foo
President. The prospect of any Increased political fervour as elections for the other eight seats on
Students' Council roll around later in February seems very unlikely. As on most other campuses
throughout the country, students
here are too engaged in immediate problems and too uncertain
of what thc future holds to lay
many definite plans for the next
academic year.
It has been suggested in various
quarters that perhaps thc election
dates should not have been moved
back especially this year. It would
be hard enough to see next term
clearly in March, let alone in February. These sources also point
out that the motion changing tho
clecton dates to the first, second
and third weeks of February was
passed at an Alma Mater meeting
January 7 by a group falling far
short of the required quorum to
make   any   A.M.S.   motion   legal.
Thus In reality, the holding of elections as proposed could be stopped.
However, any such action would
be useless. Student interest would
be just as apathetic in flfjrch as
it is now, perhaps it would be
much more so then.
Whereas in normal years rumours of prospective candidates All
the air for weeks before the actual election dates, this year they
are conspicuous by their absence.
At the date of writing, two possible candidates for Treasurer
have been suggested and expresssd
themselves willing to run. They arc
Hugh Hall, president of the Mam-
ooks, and Arvid Backman, red-
shirted McGoun debater.
So far no one has been forthcoming as a successor to the important office of L.S.E. president.
Mack Buck may be persuade!
to run for M.U.S. and his younger
brother, Paul, Is rumoured to b*
considering   running   for   Junior
Only one co-ed's name has been
suggested fo a Council which has
three positions for feminine members. Joyce Orchard will run for
This is a most serious situation.
Now, if ever, the girls must assume
leadership at U.B.C. when the war
is taking thc men in increasing
numbers. Now is the chance for
women to take over the reins of
student government. Several universities this year have co-eds in
the chief executive positions: for
example, Queen's University,
which has Miss Dorothy Wardle
as A.M.S. president.
Nominations for President close
next Thursday at 5 p.m. Nominations for Treasurer close exactly
one week later. Nominations for
all other offices close February 12
U.B.C. must have a .strong students' Council next year. Page Two-

War Survey
Since the outbreak of war in the Pacific
and the consequent increased danger to the
British Columbia coast, U.B.C. and other
coastal universities have become the focal
points of attention of all campuses on the
continent. From eastern and central Canadian and American colleges communications
have been received inquiring how the new
war has affected student life here, and our
reporters have been carefully observing the
changes in actions and attitudes at U.B.C.
to see and record just what difference, if
any, there has been.
We feel we have reason to be proud of
the war effort being put forth by our university as a whole, and will take every opportunity to publicize the fact. We feel that
our divers efforts are being steadily intensified, we know that at our present rate we
will far exceed the amount of $5200 raised
for the Red Cross last year, and we take
second place to no other university in the
land when war work is measured student
for student. This statement is uttered with
due deference to all Canadian universities,
for every one has placed its war program
However, it is most important that the
general public be informed of the part universities are playing in this struggle. Far
too often unjust criticism is leveled at our
institutions of learning by uninformed persons always eager to cast slurs, even in
During the past few months there has
been a growing feeling among editors of
college newspapers in Canada that they
should take an active part in the responsibility for presenting the case of the universities before the public, in order to bring abbut
a fuller understanding and appreciation of
the work and value of the higher education
centers. This feeling has materialized in the
decision to compile a series of stories for
release to the Canadian Press, presenting a
composite but full account of how the war
has affected university life, and what is being done to meet our country's demands on
the various campuses coast to coast.
The completed picture will include
every possible phase of enterprise, from the
military and research departments to the
student volunteer activities. Such interesting details as special war drives, academic
changes, effect on sport and social activities,
trends of registration and enlistments will
be covered in giving Canada a true and enlightening survey of how her universities
are helping win the war.
The co-operation of all who can contribute to making U.B.C.'s war story a truly
complete one is requested.
What Do You Think?
So Canadians will be asked by means of
a plebiscite, to release the government "from
any obligations arising out of any past commitments restricting the raising of men for
military service."
Our government, which claims to be
pursuing a "total-war" program will all possible haste, has decided that it must spend
additional thousands of taxation dollars,
waste precious weeks while the machinery
for the plebiscite gets functioning, to ask us
If we will release them from an obsolete
promise. We solemnly reiterate the sentiment that we wish the government would
stick as religiously to every election promise.
Mr. King, long famous as a constitutional disciple, is running true to form, believing
that he cannot take the step of conscription
without a special mandate. He is an adherent to the principle "no taxation with
But seeing that we are going to toe the
constitutional line so steadfastly, flouting
the examples of such truly great leaders as
Churchill and Roosevelt who realize this is
a time for action first, whether the actions
jibe with election promises or not, who are
going to be allowed to vote in this plebiscite?
The draft age may very possibly be set
at 18. Does* this mean that young men of
18 will be allowed to express their opinions
in the plebiscite? If boys of this age are
old enough to be soldiers, old enough to defend our country and lay down their lives
for liberty, are they not old enough to vote
on conscription? If Mr. King is going to be
such a stickler on the "no taxation without
representation" principle, he should/carry
it out to the letter in practise.
As those who are very really concerned, what do you think about it?
Faculty Forum
By J. E. Morsh
•   THE   ADMINISTRATIVE  head   of  a
large University in Eastern Canada
writing in a current journal deplores the increasing popularity of psychology. "I have
the feeling", he says, "that philosophy has
been giving up its rightful place more and
more to psychology and that thereby education and culture have suffered losses greater
than gains." He feels encouraged, however,
by the scientists, who may be imperfect philosophers but who stimulate the "real philosophers" to new and significant thinking.
It is highly probable that when medicine first severed its connection from philosophy similar complaints were heard from
the speculative philosophers and when physics and chemistry and biology asserted their
independence the reactionaries again undoubtedly maintained that education and
culture were going to the dogs.
Despite the implication to the contrary,
psychology too, is a science—the last to
break away from philosophy—and no a-
mount of nostalgic pining for the good old
days will bring it back again into the fold.
Because we believe that the study of
psychology provides a basis for the solution
of the most perplexing problems of the individual, in\he University of British Columbia we attempt to provide as broad an
opportunity as possible for the student to
become familiar with the various aspects of
psychology. Our faith in the fundamental
values of our science is reflected in the interest shown by the students themselves.
Approximately one student in three is today
studying some branch of psychology in the
In the course for First Year students introduced three years ago less emphasis is
placed on the technical and theoretical aspects of psychology and more attention is
paid to student problems and life situations.
Among the topics discussed are the problems
involved in getting along with people, emotional control, studying efficiently, and recognition of the pseudo-sciences.
The course in experimental psychology
is really a course in scientific method. It
provides facilities for the student to apply
experimental techniques to psychological
problems and at the same time encourages
clear, precise thinking and presentation.
Social psychology has long been a popular course. In time of war social behavior
is especially significant. The present rapid
social evolution and cataclysmic world
events supply much of the subject matter
which includes such general topics as human
motivation, propaganda, censorship, morale
and public opinion as well as such specific
problems as psychological reactions to bombing and blackouts.
Psychology 7 deals with psychology applied to life and to work. Some of the practical applications studied include those involved in understanding ourselves and
others, human engineering and efficiency,
choosing a vocation and getting a job, psychology in business and industry.
In the course in abnormal psychology
a more modern, humanistic attitude toward
the mental patient is sought. It is believed
that a deeper understanding of the normal
person is achieved through a study of behavior deviations.
Pspchology is only beginning to make
itself felt as a force in the shaping of human
destiny. The great practical contribution of
Canadian psychologists to the war effort is
but another indication of things to come, for
in the solution of the rehabilitation, social
and economic problems with which the
world will be faced, psychology is destined
to play a dominant role.

Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Sir:
With the United States now at
war, the University of Kentucky,
along with every other college and
university in the country, Is faced
with a great number of new problems and responsibilities many of
which we are unprepared for.
Knowing that universities In
Canada have been meeting theso
problems for a much longer time,
I thought that they probably
would havo some advice, Information, or comment which would be
valuable to us, and that we could
profit by their experiences.
For that, reason, the Kernel is
planning a series of articles by the
editors of Canadian College papers,
in which they will explain how
their University has been affected,
and what has been done to meet
these new conditions. We would
like to have you and your paper
represented in this series.
Thanks very much in advance,
and I hope to hear from you soon.

• THE QUESTION of a parking
lot patrol has again come up.
Students' Council has requested
the Big Block to organize a patrol
for the enforcement of campus
anti-litter laws. This patrol would
consist of shifts of two Big Block
men, each shift lasting one week,
and working each noon hour.
The Big Block Club has one objection to this, however. Because
many of their members are Sciencemen, or for some other reason
have their time occupied, all the
work falls on th shoulders of five
or six.
There will be a meeting of tho
Big Block club, however, in the
near future, to discuss the questions arising regarding the patrol.

Recital is due to go "out of
this world" when Lionel Salt, of
the Musical Appreciation Society,
takes over Brock Lounge for a
noon-hour of negro blues music.
To be featured on this hour-long
show are negro bands, playing
slow blues music, with some oral
interpolations by Salt. Bands featured will include Duke Ellington,
and his several units, Coleman and
Erakine Hawkins, Bill Basle, and
Teddy Wilson.
"Blues music, which is the negro's heritage, ls their honest attempt to talk in music," says Salt.
"It is the closest thing to the human voice that music has yet offered.

It mismt be smart to skip a
French lecture some afternoon and
drop clown and see "Paris Calling4'
at whichever theatre they put it
in. Seeing it the other night was
a revelation. It seems that Hollywood has decided it might be a
good idea to produce some quality
pictures — and so Universal comes
up with "Paris Calling."
The actors don't matter — although they are excellent — but
the story does. Its the story of
the great underground fight going
on in France today. The story of
how Frenchmen who love freedom
more than comfort are making it
hot for their Nazi oppressors. The
story of how quick Commando
raids on the coast of France are
helping along that fight.
"Paris Calling" stands out because of its timeliness. Even apart
from that it is good entertainment,
crammed with action and mystery.
In the screening room were four
Frenchmen. They watched tha
story of their own country — and
when the lights went up after a
beautiful climax, there were tears
In their eyes.
You can get an awful lot out of
a pile of Totems. Take the four
that cropped up in the bottom
drawer the other day when I was
looking through old Ubyssey files
to get some sort of an idea for
this column. Those four Totems,
with their neat blue covers, just
naturally wanted to be looked at
again. Which is just what happened.
If some wandering Totem salesman is right now seated across a
caf table trying to convince you
that you should buy now and
avoid the rush — don't shoo him
away. He's not half the trouble
that ex-commerce students who go
into life insurance will be in future years. He's a public benefactor,
if you only knew It.
In April when you buy your
Totem, you'll have no Idea of th*
heartaches that went into producing it Neither will you care. Only
the Totem staff caret—in their
quiet rooms In the convelescant
hospital. Also you'll have no idea
of how useful that book will become in future years.

day, worrying about Income tax
and the shortage of rubber tires.

• STUDENT apathy to the
war and failure to accept
the responsibilities accompanying war were knocked
by Dean Mawdsley and Mary
Mulvin at a general meeting
of Phrateres on Wednesday.
Dean Mawdsley pointed out that
only 29 girls attended the First
Aid classes last term as compared
with 89 the year before. 100 girls
can be accommodated at the
Thursday afternoon classes. Both
speakers stressed the fact that not
enough girls were doing Red
Cross work.
Mary Mulvin outlined a vigorous programme for this term including the formation of a new
musical club on the campus. If
successful, this club will give those
students who fall short of Musical
Society ability a chance to air their
voeal chords in Slng-Songs.

Campus Second Place Soccermen Tie City Police 2-All
Poor Refereeing
Helps Cops Even Up
•   IN A ROUGH, wild game at Cambie Street grounds on
Wednesday, Varsity held the Police eleven to a 2-2 draw
to maintain their second place league standing.
Sparked by Doug Todd, Fred Sasaki, and Spence Wallace, the Varsity eleven held their own against the cops in
spite of partial refereeing and dirty playing. The crowd at
the game noticed the unfair tactics of both police squad and
the referee, and voiced their disapproval with boos and
In the first ten minutes of the
game, Tupper, Varsity center forward, broke away to score the
first counter. The score was evened shortly after by a goal by
Johnny Campbell of the Police
squad, in spite of a sensational attempt at a save by Herb Smith,
Varsity's goalie.
The second half saw the unfair
refereeing. In a pack-up in front
of the Varsity goal mouth, Herb
Smith came out to clear the ball.
One of the Police squad illegally
blocked Smith, allowing Jack Dyer
to put the ball through the open
unprotected goal. It is assumed
that the referee did not see the
foul for he allowed the goal to
stand. In spite of protests from
the team, and opposition from the
crowd, referee Fishwicke refused
to reverse his decision.
Varsity evened the score a few
minutes later, when Doug Todd,
captain of the team, scored his
first goal of the season. Varsity
was unable to get the winning
point, and the game ended in a
2-2 draw.
Manager of the team, Jim McCarthy, said it was one of the
roughest games the team has played, and that he was sorry to see
the Police eleven use such underhand methods to win a game, as
they had always been such clean
and sportsmanlike players.
The return of Spence Wallace to
the team boosted the squad's spirit,
and the spectacular playing of
Wallace, Sasaki, and Todd, with
the cooperation of the rest of the
team made the moral (anyway)
victory possible.
Varsity's draw left the team in
second place in the league standing. The Woodsonias took a 8-0
game from the Pro-Recs, and the
final standing of the teams is as
Police 12 points
Varsity  7 points
Woodsonias 5 points
Pro-Recs 0 points
The lineup for the game played
on Wednesday Is as follows:

FULL BACKS: Young, Oughton,

Shirtmen Sink
Varsity Into Ninth
Straight Loss
•   LAST WEDNESDAY night at the U.B.C. Gym, the Varsity Thunderbirds went down for the ninth consecutive
defeat by a score of 65-45. Their opponents the Tookes just
simply outclassed them.
It was without doubt, the fastest, rip-roaring game of
the season. The main high spot of the evening was that
George McConnell of the Shirtmen scored a grand total of
25 points, pust one point less than the league record held by
'Hooker' Wright and Long John Purves.
The game got under way when

Al Dean and Harry Franklin
shone for the students in the first
quarter. Dean got 4 points and
Franklin got 3 in one lump sum
from Rann Matheson; 2 on a personal and one on a technical foul
when Matheson disputed the referee's decision. The quarter ended
11-18 for Tookes.
The second and third quarters
were novel in one respect that
Lynn Sully, Varsity's erstwhile
bench-warmer played the whole
of both quarters scoring 4 points
in the latter period.
The third stanza was exceptionally fast with Varsity getting six
points in the opening seconds. The
U.B.C. cagers played point for
point with Tookes bringing the
score from 19-35 to 36-51. Barton
sank 4 baskets to McConnell's 3.
In the final period, the killing
pace subsided slightly, but the students were still fighting for every
inch. Sandy Hay was the bad boy
of the game, being the only player
to go off the floor on personals.
The,Tookes were just too good.

aid of the War Aid committee will
be proposed. The meet, if all goes
well will include entries from
Varsity, Pro-Rec, High Schools,

It was also learned that Colonel

in the sweeping

Any people interested in joining

• THE WEEK SPLASHES: Seeing Harry Kermode, center on
the Thunderbird cage gang, doing
a measley 25 feet in the plunge for
distance. Harry's 6 foot three inch
frame kerplunked for booby place,
while diminutice Jimmy Lynn, who
reaches to no better than Ker-
mode's arm pits, took the event
with a 43 foot effort.
Which all goes to prove that. ..
Incidentally, the mighty mite Lynn
might have stretched his distance
a few feet had he not drifted back
toward the finish line. Instead of
following the ancient "straightest
geometric distance" thereom. Mr.
Lynn described a perfectly good
Gage arc, and began heading back
tho wrong way.
Naturally, with his ears plugged
with water, the shrieks of horror
from his Phi Delta team-matea
were of no avail.
Afterwards Lynn exclaimed, "I
thought I was ncarlng the edge,
only it turned out to be the wrong

rumour is circulating, that
George Reifel, Fiji athletic rep,
gave the boys the old Ned for only

That Beta Theta Pi—Kappa Sigma hoop game last Tuesday evening was one serious affair. In fact,
it took on the appearance of the
boys doing what they wanted to
do most—and that was to lick the
other bunch. Well, Kappa Sigma
ended on top of a 34-25 score. But
that count meant nothing in that
type of ball game. In the third
quarter, it was still heads—you
win, tails—I wouldn't even guess.
Most pleasing from this column's
point of view was that the game
was exceptionally clean, which is
saying a lot, and little, if any,,
squaks fell our way.
In the way of contrast, however,
was the Phi Gamma Delta—Phi
Kappa Pi squirmish that resembl-
that Tugger game more than the
beloved hoop sport Either the
boys didn't, couldn't or just failed
to live up to the non-body-contact
rule, or, yet again, we could have
been all wet
Anyway Gorman and Carmlchael
had a lot of fun doing their darn-

their actions don't go down as
