Beer, Rain And Money
Pour In Tea Cup Game
The annual Tea Cup game was
characterized by Mayhem and
$700 collected for the Vancouver
Children's Hospital.
Home Ec. went down to defeat 14-6 before the vicious tackling of the heavier Nurses.
A courageous attempt by the
Engineers to halt the inexorable
progress of the Aggie chariot
failed when the farmers ran
right over an unfortunate redshirt.
A fanatical mob of fraternity
pledges and other cross-country
.fiends ran into a colossal traffic
jam leaving the stadium. Needless to say, there were several
dented fenders.
"Lovely" Engineers and Foresters, leading the cheering for
Nursing and Home Ec. respectively, were assailed by various
unpalatable leftovers from spectators' lunches.
Five beer-bellied Aggies walked off with the prize in the boat
race—more beer. #
Pubsters were disqualified,
supposedly for cheating. One of
the pubsters accused the runner-

Violence was the key-word in
the chariot race. Aggies pulled
the Engineers' chariot to pieces
and dumped driver Bill.Rodin-
chuk out on the track. Engineers
retaliated valiantly but were
beaten off by Aggie artillery.
This consisted of a liquid fertilizer and blue dye.
Incidently, there was also a
football game.
Nurses dominated the first
half with their hard blocking
and tackling.
The gang tackling in the first
half did not reflect the characteristic suggested in the tag
"gentler sex".
Nurses led eight to nothing at
the end of the half. They picked
up a safety on a girdle-popping
tackle by Marg Lewis and Elaine
Muth's dive over center for • a
Nurses, spurred on by such
inspiring cheers as "give us a
bedpan," increased their lead in
the third quarter when standout
back Barb Whittaker drove over
for a second unconverted touchdown.
On the next play flying Pat
Foulkes circled right end for a
gain of several hundred yards
and a touchdown. Pat was the
work-horse for Home Ec.
The opening kick-off didn't
travel the required 10 yards said
head referee, Ron Stewart, who
was called many derogatory
names, including "Dojack".
The first punt of the game
travelled 15 yards and the kicker
fell flat on her - - er-uh - - back.
Standout for Nurses were
Carol Hunter, Wendy Dobson,
Elaine Muth, Barb Whittaker,
and Marg Lewis.
Home Ec. was led by Pat
Foulkes, Helen Vukasovich and
Verlie Abrams.
The establishment of a Representative Assembly with 42
members was the main recommendation of a brief presented
to the Haskins Commission at
noon yesterday.
This assembly would consist
of two representatives from
each faculty, as well as members' of several important committees and clubs on campus.

Munro Asks Debate
Of Execution Question
The question of continued
Communist executions of anti-
Reds in Hungary burst into the
open at the United Nations Wednesday on charges by Sir Leslie
Munroe, special UN representative.
The fourteenth UN General
Assembly was to debate Sir
Leslie's request that the subject
be placed once more on the
UN agenda.
The UN special representative on Hungary, Sir Leslie
charged that the Communist regime is carrying out executions
and trials of anti-Communist
rebels despite promises that
such practices had ended.
The demand of Sir Leslie, of
New Zealand, that the assembly debate the question; "as an
important and urgent matter",
was supported by US ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, who
declared "the assembly must
speak out strongly against the
brutalizing of the Hungarian
people. All those responsible
in and out of Hungary should
work with the rest of us to
carry out the overwhelmingly
adopted resolutions of United
The move is bitterly opposed
by Russia, who says it can only
worsen the cold war at a time
of comparative warmth in East-
West relations resulting from
the meeting between Premier
Khrushchev and President
Canadian External Affairs
Minister Greene, who returned
to Ottawa yesterday, earlier said
he wanted to have the Hungarian question debated.
"The Canadian people had
been much disturbed by reports
that Hungarian youths are
awaiting execution for their part
in the 1956 anti-Communist uprising," he said.
Britain is also supporting the
demand for the debate, and was
looking for concrete facts as to
just what the situation is in the
Hungarian prisons. Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd said in the
General Assembly that if Hungary could refute charges that
youths were being executed for
taking part in the uprising, the
way to do so would be to allow
the UN observer, Sir Leslie, to
enter the country.
Sir Leslie was appointed by
the assembly last year to try to
obtain compliance with previous
assembly resolutions calling on
Russia and the Hungarian government to hold free elections
and respect human rights.
The New Zealander and a
previous UN envoy with the
same mission ran into a solid
will in seekin gentry into Budapest and Moscow.
UN sources first said that the
Assembly's 21-nation steering
committee would debate today
whether the subject should be
placed once more on the agenda,
but they announced late last
night that the committee meeting had been postponed indefinitely.
Observers predicted that tha
Hungarian question, will remaia
hot in any case.
Peter Meekison commented:—
"It is an excellent idea. The U.N.
is doing the world a great service. The U.B.C. together with
other Canadian universities has
helped provoke Munro into action."

Koerner Grad Centre
Site On West Mall
President MacKenzie announced Wednesday that a center for
graduate students at UBC would
be constructed with a gift of
$400,000 from Dr. Leon J. Koerner, the retired chairman of
Alaska Pine and Cellulose Limited.
The new center will occupy a
site on the University's West
Mall, between International
House and the Faculty Club and
University Social Center.
Tentative date for the beginning   of   construction   is  April,
1&60. The center will take about
ten months to complete.
President MacKenzie said that
Dr. Koerner's generous gift
would do a great deal to promote
the academic and social welfare
of graduate students.
Dr. Gordon Shrum, Dean of
the Faculty of Graduate Studies,
said that the construction of the
center would be "the greatest
stimulus to graduate work since
the faculty was established at
this university.
The house will be closed tonight, Friday, for decorating.

My South African correspondent writes me that in all the
furore that has been raised recently over the "Hungarian Situation", the "Algerian Crisis," and the "Nyasaland Do", newspapers in North America have forgotten all about what is happening in his own country. He goes on . . . "Need I remind you
thj# we both have had our share (perhaps more than that)
in^ raising a, little, ruckus where ruckus was necessary, and
wl^jn we were drunk enough to do so without fear of the consequences." Yes, indeed, that boy and I were chased more
pf ten by the police of more countries than any other two people
thftf I know. But the time to which he specifically refers was
or^e, drunken night in Durban, when the girls had^all fled our
clutches, and there were only GIRLS left. We wanted nothing
of mese—there is no sport in the average, diseased prostitute,
' so we sought out a relation of mine (who was in hiding, pretending that he didn't know me) and persuaded him to take us
to* a" political meeting that was being carried on-in the city
square. He was most reluctant to do this, "but under the influ-
' ence etf * bottle of Cape Smoke (the euphpnius name of a drink
that in part at least is distilled from the leaves and bark of the
native palm tree) he consented, and at length we found ourselves seated at a table atop a jury-rigged platform that had
bee» hastily constructed in the square.
• This square is one of the most lovely parts of the city. It
is set on all sides by public buildings that are faced in dark
marble, against which the sun splashes in the day, and the stars
flash at night. Inside a walk of white concrete is a vast lawn of
the finest grasses, so that although it forms a public thoroughfare the earth never shows, through this cover. At the edge of
the grass, within the walk, stand eight brass cannon, models of
thos£ used by the early Dutch settlers in the middle of the seventeenth century. From each trails a white wick, and beside
each stands its pile of shot—lead shot, such as was cast from
the reserves up- on the Berea Hillr-
_, The square has traditionally been the place where meetings that are of importance are held. Even the Governor-General's Ball—for which tickets are fought over with primeval
African savagery—begins there, and this, being the height of
the July season, sets the seal of official approval upon the use
of this garden.
So, on this day, Malaan spoke to the English South-Africans
about the wane of liberty in their country, using provincial
symbols to illustrate his Federal message, and his auditors
entered each sentiment as it splashed from his thick lips. He
excoriated his relative, the Prime Minister of the country; he
waved his hands over the heads of the sweepers cleaning the
streets for the next day's traffic—THESE were the ones who
must be saved from the clutches of the White Supremacists;
he pointed to the poliee gathered at'the rear of the crowd, call-
ink them "Gestapo" who belonged nowhere but in the stronghold' of Afrikaans supremacy called Johannesburg; he called all
to witness that the day of reckoning was close at hand, and
that Englishmen should protect themselves NOW if they
valued what their wives and daughters* held dearer than life
itself. Beside him a man rose, a man so powerful that I dare
not name him even today, and shouted for "action now, this
day.   Let there be a riot, if there must."
The police charged. That crowd of hundreds ran before
a few truncheons, scattering between buildings, hiding behind
their FELLOWS, falling beneath' the naked feet of the native
constabulary. Concentrating their strength upon the platform,
the police pushed through until they were at our feet. My
friend and I fled, over the broken back of the crowd, I think,
and beside us ran that oh, so important man who loved the
native with his soul, and thought that we ought to rise to his
defence. We ran past another squad of police, who ignored
us as we went, and the IMPORTANT MAN breasted ahead of
us like some female channel shimmer going strong for the
beaches. A Zulu, a rickshaw boy, in full dress of cloak and
feathers, got in his way, and was bowled over for his impertinence. "Damn these niggers" said the important man; "They
ought to be kept where they belong." He disappeared around
the. next corner.
Laler on, my friend and 1 returned to the square, and attempted to foe, the brass cannon, but we were chased away by the

The Editor,
The Ubyssey.
One of Tne editorials in the
Ubyssey today is very unusual:
the author wants "Publicity
for U.B.C." as a football university. It was also pointed out
that our University was supported by sports fans too.
Let me remind the author
that the University is an
academic institution; it is not
established as an attachment
to a football club. Among the
supporters of the University,
there are undoubtedly ' many
enthusiastic sports lovers, but
when they contribute to
U.B.C, they understand that
they are contributing to an
academic institution. If they
want to support football, they
naturally will do so to a professional team. Moreover, they
do not expect to see a U.B.C.
champion football team as a
return for their  support.
Certainly we desire good
reputation for U.B.C.—reputation in the academic fields. We
should not particularly want
"publicity" of having a semi-
professional football team.
Some U.S. midwest universities are well known for their
standards in football. But what
else do we know about them,
though there are some top
scientists among their professors?
Football is a good athletic
game and can be taken up
seriously. However, its importance is not in the strength of
the team or in publicity, but,
rather, in its part in university
life. In the eastern universities,
for example: Toronto, McGill,
Queen's, and Western, more
than half of their student population turn out in each game
to cheer their teams, even
though the competition is a
surely-losing one. They also
charter special trains to go
watching a game away from
home. If their teams win, so
much the better; if they lose,
they will not become unhappy.
Occasionally one university
has a very strong team; but
there is not such a nonsense as
football scholarships in those
universities with the purpose
of keeping a good football
team. Is the public aware of
the University of Toronto and
McGill because of their football teams? Is it ignorant
about U.B.C. because we lost
to the Mustangs? Or, is Western going to have a higher
reputation because they won?
Perhaps it is a good idea to
be aware of what a university
is intended to be.
Yours truly,

The primary function of a
university is to teach a person
how to think. I would therefore favor the removal from
this campus of such faculties
as Applied Science and Commerce, because it is obvious
that the primary function of
these materialistic groups is
not teaching how to think, but
teaching how to build a bridge,
plant a forest or manage a
profitable business.
Any training in a field
where a man's practical usefulness is the foremost consideration should be given in
a polytechnic institute,  not a ,
university campus.
Contrary to what seems to
be common opinion at UBC,
an institution of truly higher
learning does not try to produce a practical "useful" person, but a person who at
least will have the strength of
mind to concentrate on higher
ideals than materialism.

The UBC Film Society has
been subjected to considerable
criticism lately because of
various technical difficulties
it has encountered. It has also
been the recipient of much ill
will from Cinema 16, a competing organization whose alleged intent it is to present
high quality films for campus
This impression of Cinema
1'6's policy which I had gained
was rudely shattered when I
saw some of their advertisements. One read "Risque
French bedroom comedy".
Another carried the words
"Sadistic professor perverts
Is this quasi-pornographic
train of thought to be Cinema
16's contribution to this campus? If so, wouldn't we be
better off tolerating Filmsoc
and their problems instead of
patronizing an organization
which chooses to insult the intellects of ' the students by
bringing this back-alley material to the university?

Donkeys Inc., take note.Your
ungrammatical letter in which
you recommend the elimination
of the program "The Works of
the Masters" from the UBC
Radio is utterly stupid; obviously a product of nonminds.
Let me illustrate this for you
by quoting from your masterpiece:
"We feel that we don not want
to listen to classical music". Try
to think about it instead.
"It can be heard anytime of
the day by tuning into a Canadian Radio Station." Who told
you this fable?
"Popular music, or even music of a livelier type, is much
more appreciated by the majority of students as it tends to
awaken them."
You say here that:
a) Classical music is never
b) The majority of students
has poor musical tastes,
c) Classical music is a barbiturate, and, to put it bluntly,
you dislike classical music.
This dislike is easily explained, for, as Lichtenberger
says, "Such works of art are
like a mirror: if an ass looks
in you cannot expect an angel
to look out."
. You slate also that "The
Brock is not intended for relaxation, and not for music appreciation."
Who claims that this is its
sole function? Even if it were,
however, it would still be preferable to being a stable for ox
and ass.
Finally, you come out with
the gem, "Why not let majority
rule and abolish this program?"
You define "Majority Rule"
as the majority's rignt to do
what you want it to do.
The crowning glory of your
letter  is  the ending,  "— Two
Hopeful Students".
Not only do you lack the
courage of your convictions, no,
you enlist the help of an equally
insecure creature to help you
nonsign your letter.

Dear Mr. L'Heureux:
We have noticed that your
organization has been persisting
in a petition campaign to free
some Hungarian students wiio
are alleged to be illegally held
in jail awaiting their eighteenth
birthday so that they may be
"legally executed" by the Hungarian government.
This Campaign goes on in
spite of a denial by the Hungarian government that there are
any such students, and in spite
of a statement by the Canadian
government that it has no information that any such arrests
have taken place and knows of
no impending executions.
We feel that in face of these
official denials that the NFCUS
is called upon to state the source
of its information that has lead
you to undertake such a vigorous campaign. We are certain
that these so-called "sources"
if they do exist, are suspect
from the start.
Campaigns such as these
when based solely on rumor and
unsubstantiated by fact only
contribute to the mistrust and
hatred which has polluted the
atmosphere of the world these
past number of years. The
NFCUS is doing nothing that
will benefit the Canadian students, or enhance the prestige
of the organization by being a
party to slanders of this sort.
We. sincerely hope that you
will repudiate the charges
which you have laid. Thank
you for your kind attention.
With sincere regards,

Dr. Pandia said, "We now live

Commenting on India's progress, the speaker said that India is now thinking as a unified

can only be delivered with bitter, angry irony.
G.: Anger? Irony perhaps,
but anger?    Not here, surely?
D.C: Shynkaryk got real joy
into Vadim Romanoff's account of the- Revolution.
Honest emotion can be worked
in among the synthetics of
puppy-play and platitudinous
parental indignation.
G.: You liked Shynkaryk's
performance, then?
D.C: I thought it the' best
I have ever seen him give. Saving your presence, easily the
best of this production; polished, convincing, sustained.
G.: And the rest of the Russians?
D.C: Elizabeth Kaiser, Mrs.
Romanoff, needs more experience. She lapsed from accent
and, more seriously, character,
on several occasions. She had
an honest manner, though, and
a warm and willing submission
to a unaesthetic part which
Martin Bartlett also brought
to the characterization of The
G.: Unaesthetic? Not in our
country, surely? You must
mean unsympathetic.
D.C: There are no unsympathetic characters in this play.
By unaesthetic I mean a corset-
less female or a kneeling man.
Bartlett threw himself about
with a Thurber-dog-like devotion.
G.: And that startling and
un-Illyric intruder, Junior Captain Marfa Zlotochienko?—
who, you'll have noticed, succumbed to our hot-house happiness in two acts?
D.C: Some girls succumb
after one.
G.: I say, may I use that?
D.C: Work it in somewhere.
The Junior Captain, Maxine
Gadd, reminded me of Garbo
in "Ninotchka." Chalk-white
face, flashing eyes, imperious,
military manner: too bad they
put that silly hat on her in the
last scene. Barney Baker's
Igor had the same necessary
stiffness, though marred by a
sometime stoop; his embarrassment entertainingly right, his
lack of belief in the love scenes
quite suitable—
G.: Just a minute—
D.C: (imperturbably) considering the plot and his partner. His partner! , Listen:
Shakespeare's Juliet was
twelve years old, but did this
one have to be too? I don't
know if Penny Gaston or
the director was to blame.
All I do know is that I
would sooner have expected
her to declaim the "Wreck of
the Hethperuth" from that balcony than any words of even
adolescent love. Not that it
matters much. The young lovers, despite their star billing
in the title, have little more
than a symbolic significance in
the play. I did think of calling my review, "The Unimportance of Being Igor.' (pause)
General, did you hear me?
G.: Not even the demands of
diplomacy can force a smile
for that one. But her family?
D.C: (Pedanticaily) Drawn
as the most convential of this
uninspired set of puppets, they
were more or less competently
coloured in by Les Wager and
Lloy Coutts. I liked the former's Amurrican Ambassador,
though God knows what he
must have been doing to his
vocal chords; he had lots of
vitality, and a certain florid
precision of gesture. His wife
was—okay, but the number of
that little brown number she
wore was definitely up some
years and sizes ago. And she
needed a floor-length petticoat
in the last act.
G.: (staring impatiently at
the clock-tower) Some saint
should shortly save us from,
this sartorial sabbatical.
D.C: While we're on he subject, why didn't Mike Matthews shine his shoes?
G.: (Airily) A mere quibble.
What about his acting?
D.C: Misinterpreted the
role. Freddie is stupid; which
makes his occasional clever
line—"one thing about baseball, it never lets you down"—
all the funnier. Matthews
made him too intelligent.
Then there's the Archbishop—
in from wings): How was I?
D.C: Well, it would be hard
to go wrong in a part like
ARCH.: (Cupping ear) Eh?
What's that you're saying?
D.C: Patriarch of the See of
Sore Knees, almost completely
disguised by beard and mitre;
you were,  nonetheless,—
ARCH.: Speak up!
D.C: (despairingly) What's
the use! (Aside to General) I
was trying to tell Mr. Kramer
he was good.
ARCH: Good, you say? I'm
glad to hear it. (He toddles

Well then, what is jazz?
Many things.
A few of them—
Jazz can be a moment. A
moment starting deep in an
underground stream of nowhere. Notes seep- down from
the soil above. Through little
particles of earth, through
larger particles of stone. Hit a
base then start long journey
upward. Journeys upward at
times go downward at times go
sideways but always upward.
Little bits of water join other
little bits of water and together
make themselves a route. A
pattern conceived.
A pattern to develop. To
develop to grow to search for
the top. It takes a dip. It takes
a similar dip. Soon the dip becomes the pattern.
Then a surge towards air.
Another pattern. Yet the dip is
still there. And so is the base,
that's peculiar, so is the base—
in a meshily distinct distance.
But dip fades and new patterns

But a strong sound hits it, clay.

they push. Together, altogether.

touches: the imaginary-doorknob business between you
and Vadim Romanoff; your
exit through the invisible
G.: (deprecatingly) Oh, that
was in the script.
D.C: You don't surprise me.
The play leans heavily on gimmicks like that.
C.S.: But you just sed you
enjoyed them.
D.C: (faintly) I know. I'm
rather confused, (rallying)
Dammit, this play said nothing; if you preclude some entertainingly dry comments on
mankind. No social injustices
subjected to sustained attack,
no Establishment routed with
a rapier pen, no . . . no . . .

by M. T. Williams. This book
is primarily devoted to essays
on the nature and development
of jazz; essays that examine
jazz as a form of art worthy
of serious consideration, and
notable jazzmen such as King
Oliver, Duke Ellington, or
Bessie Smith as artists in their
own right.
These essays discuss the
various phases of jazz from the
First World War to the present
day, and deal with" every
aspect of the music. These
significant articles will help
enthusiasts to listen to jazz
more intelligently, and will
make the best introduction for
beginners, to a form of music
which has inspired the Western world for the past four
Intelligent jazz criticism is
very rare indeed, but here at
last is one which is more than
Richard Strauss was a man
who saw visions. Fantastic ex-
tramusical images were turned
in his fertile but uncontrollable
mind into harmonies of endless
complexity and vast bodies of
orchestral sound piled on each
other in crashing sonorities.
His pen, vainly endeavouring to
keep pace with his imagination,
blackened page after page of
manuscript with "leit-motiven"
and thickly scored instrumental
intricacies. Frequently this music is played. It is always bad,
and sometimes intolerably so.
No more can usefully be said
about the Vancouver Symphony's rendition of Strauss's
"Don Juan" at last Saturday's
concert. It is of no purpose to
comment on the performance itself; the composer's only concession to formalism is to contain (grudgingly) his intellectual orgasms within the restrictions of the conventional notation system; therefore it is a
work that is probably impossible to play incorrectly without a conscious effort to do so.
"Don Juan" was preceded by
the pleasantly trivial overture
"The Italian Girl in Algiers"
by Rossini. The orchestra unfortunately made slush out of
what should be lightly driven
The concert ended, after some
time, with Dvorak's Symphony
No. 6. In customary Dvorak
style, the work was lengthy,
and seemed to consist largely
of perorations. The third movement had a certain amount of
rhythmic   energy,   despite   the
fact that the modal implications of his folk-song theme
passed unnoticed by the composer. It was not enough, however, to save a number of the
audience from an excursion into the realms of not Orpheus
but Morpheus.
The main work of the programme, and the one which, by
any objective musical standard,
. was much the most worthwhile,
was the Piano Concerto No. 2,
by Bartok. The work is in three
movements, the first of which,
an Allegro, is scored for piano
and wind instruments only,
rather in the manner of Stravinsky's Concerto for Piano and
Winds. Percussive piano effects and the antiphonal treatment of the solo passages
against the orchestra heighten
the resemblance. The magnificent melodic resource, and the
sure, precise scoring and organizational development is Bar-
tok's own, however. The second
movement introduces the
strings with happy effect. Bartok does not bring them in as
an extralogical afterthought,
like the choral movement of
Beethoven's 9th, but they grow
logically out of what has gone
before: The first movement,
with its clear, crisp outlines
and percussive textures did not
need them, therefore- they were
not there. The second movement makes its point felt by
extremely simple means at
first: an etching of chords, and
a restricted, and yet wonderfully expressive repeated-note
melody in the piano. The strings
are   needed   to  contrast   their
warm tone with the soloist's
new lyric role. The result is
-complete and purposeful fulfilment. This ternary second -
movement is interspersed with
a scherzo, heightening the effect of the slow sections and
throwing its own virtuosic intricacies into sharp relief. The
last movement whirls the work
to a close with much syncopation and a great deal of anti-
Despite Lloyd Powell's programme note, the work makes
no concession to popular taste.
"Don Juan" does that, and ends
up a dismal failure. No, through,
superb craftsmanship and conscious intellectual control Bartok crystallizes his imaginative
processes into something that
appeals to the emotions of the
audience on the highest plane
possible, and in Wallace Stevens' words, makes

POET AND PIONEER     JBibliography
"And what," said the Emperor, "does this poem describe?"
"It describes," said the Poet, "the Cave of the Never-never.
"Would you like to see what's inside?" He offered his arm.
They stepped into the poem and disappeared for ever.
George Barker set these four lines as introduction to his
most recent volume, Collected Poems, 1930-1955, and now the
Poet extends the invitation to students and faculty to step inside
when he comes on Monday for a week long visit to the university.
That you will disappear forever if you step into one of Barker's
poems is rather unlikely, but that you will never again be
exactly the same person, is more than probable. The enfant terrible of the young prodigies of the thirties is still baffling the
critics, shocking the respectable, irritating the refined and delighting the discriminating. He has been praised and blamed with
equal fervour. Most critics extol his sonorous verbal magnificence,
but even so partisan a reviewer as David Daiches regrets that "the
absence of residual emotion in Barker's verse spells a fundamental limitation." How does one measure residual emotion? I suggest that such poems as "The Amazons", "Vision of England",
half a dozen of the songs in "Cycles of Love Poems" and some of
the Elegies hold all the-emotion the poem can contain.
His ability to convey atmosphere by means of uncanny
images and powerful verbs reminds us of John Donne, and his
fascination with the sound of words recalls Swinburne equally
hypnotized with rhetoric. His mastery of technical devices holds
the reader, even though the obscurity of the allusions perplexes
him. A dozen examples spring to mind:
Meeting a monster of mourning wherever I go
Who crosses me at morning and evening also,
For whom are you miserable I ask and he murmurs
I am miserable for innumerable man . . .
With burning fervour
I am forever
Turning in my hand
The Crystal, this moment.
But that any exposition of a poem would be unsatisfactory
when set beside the poem itself is obvious when one reads such
an elegy as this:
Incubus. Anaesthetist with glory in a bag.
Foreman with a sweatbox and a whip. Asphyxiator
Of the ecstatic. Sergeant with a grudge
Against the lost lovers in the park of creation,
Fiend behind the fiend behind the fiend behind the
Friend. Mastodon with mastery, monster with an ache
At the tooth of the ego, the dead drunk judge:
Wheresoever Thou art our agony will find Thee
Enthroned on the darkest altar of our heartbreak.
Perfect. Beast, brute, bastard. O dog my God!

in a three-way tie for first with the D-C's and the Alberni
Athletics. Birds have played two more games than the rest
of the league.
Coach Pomfret said Thursday
that "We've got to win tonight
(against Dietrich-Collins). The
team was pretty unhappy with
their showing in Alberni last
Saturday, and they'll be really
fighting for this one."
Pomfret added that the team
was tired after last weekend's
games. "Playing a tough team
like Dietrich-Collins and then
making   the  trip  to  Alberni   is

his return from Toronto.
The president of the MAA
stated that the organization
would be a body designed to
co-ordinate inter-collegiate athletic events and rules throughout Canada.
Stewart was particularly happy with the way that Western
representatives took the lead in
discussing the setting up of such
a group.

The coach thought they lost
the last two games through sloppy play. The Alberni game was
apparently very poorly handled,
and a rough, ragged, and sloppy
game resulted. The Birds are going to work on some defence in
preparation for the games.
Pomfret said that Dietrich-Collins' experience won the last
game for them. Ed Wilde and
Brian Upson repeatedly stopped
the Birds' offensive before it got
airborne. "They kept switching
defences on us, which is really
tough on our boys." But he
thought the Birds could win
these games, which they must if
they are to be a threat for first

John Davidson.
John, a three-time Big Block

16 years ago at the tender age

Davidson became the Varsity
eleven's team manager. After
that Varsity, which had previously been an obscure and unrecognized grass hockey team
on the campus, improved their
position in the old Pacific Coast
Field Hockey Association. Varsity rose to second place and has
never dipped below this mark
in regular league standings since
To digress, John gives much
of the credit to the presence of
Dr. Malcolm McGregor, who
was invited and accepted the
invitation to become the Varsity
coach and referee at this time.
Since then, McGregor has been
active in raising all standards
of play.
Returning to Davidson, he remained grass hockey's senior
manager ' for two and a half
years and later became captain
of Varsity, during his four years
of undergraduate studies here.
Illness forced him to restrict his
subsequent activities to coaching and refereeing for several
John is the A D vision Blues'
